Hi ILikeMaps: I've reverted your link additions at Kastellorizo and Dalmatian Italians because in my opinion, while interesting, they violate our guidelines on external links - that's a blog, with a commercial purpose (advertising a stamp dealership). If the author has published articles anywhere on the topic of defunct states that issued stamps and currency, those could be cited. Yngvadottir (talk) 17:53, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Please stop posting links to that commercial blog. If you really think it's so useful that an exception should be made to our policy in this case, post to the talk pages of the articles concerned. Yngvadottir (talk) 15:08, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
