RfC: Inclusion of predecessors and successors in officeholders' infoboxes[edit]

Hi, I'm writing to inform you that I've opened a new general Request for Comment concerning whether predecessors and successors should be included in the Infobox Officeholder template, further to my RfC concerning Michael Portillo specifically. The new RfC can be found here: Template_talk:Infobox_officeholder#RfC:_Should_predecessors_and_successors_be_included_in_officeholders.27_infoboxes.3F. Thanks, Specto73 (talk) 19:19, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Keele University[edit]

Hi Jonathan, regarding removal of the COI template here [1], you're right that no mention was made at the article talk page. I've rectified that now--the conflict of interest has been long term and pretty obvious, and a lot of clean up by several editors has been necessary. That said, if the conflict is no longer evident in the article's tone, there's no need to restore the template. But I'm not real pleased with that editor's persistent removal of templates they don't like, and I'd encourage watchlisting this for the future. Thanks, 2601:188:1:AEA0:65F5:930C:B0B2:CD63 (talk) 01:06, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

Sure. Jonathan A Jones (talk) 19:32, 27 January 2017 (UTC)

University of Siena[edit]

The article is based on ONE source inserted by one contributor, a book published in 1895. We are in 2017. It should be considered original research, being that it's generally accepted the 1240 as year of foundation. 1408 is the year of In Apostolicae Sedis specula, a Papal bull that confirmed the privileges to the university of Siena as studium generale. I'm fixing the paragraph with more sources. --Chiorbone da Frittole (talk) 14:57, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

Obviously if you can find sources of the same quality as the book by Hastings Rashdall then you should feel free to edit the text, but you will need proper sources. Jonathan A Jones (talk) 15:09, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
