Principality of Achaea[edit]

Did you mean to remove the "interregnum" bit in your latest edit? Choess (talk) 04:37, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Never mind. For some weird reason, the diff I get in the navigation popup when I mouseover "diff" on my watchlist is different from what I see when I click the link. Thanks for a good addition to the article. Do you have any comments on Battle of Manolada (other than that it could use inline sourcing)? Choess (talk) 02:01, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Fabia Numantina[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Fabia Numantina requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, as well as our subject-specific notability guideline for biographies.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the page does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that they userfy the page or have a copy emailed to you. → Ãlways Ãhëad (talk) 01:16, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

BC - AD or BCE-CE[edit]

Hy there, I want to congratulate you for your efforts and contributions; keep up the good work. I also want to point out that to change from BC-AD towards BCE-CE (or vice-versa) is a tricky and controversial business. It has to be proposed and debated in the talkpage of the relevant article and agreed upon. Unilateral changes (done without the procedure mentioned earlier) can be reverted and original systems have the home advantage. As far as I can judge this matter (I'm in favour of using AD/BC because it is the most widely used system - don't bother to "convert" me :) the majority of the articles about ancient Rome use BC/AD.

As for the anonymous user who keeps reverting your edits. Let him do it once again, then I will report him. Flamarande (talk) 13:51, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

I understand your concerns but it is as I said: the original system has the home advantage. As far as I can judge this matter BC/AD is indeed way more popular in articles about ancient Rome (and perhaps most articles about Classical Antiquity). Take a look at Ancient Rome, Roman Kingdom, Roman Republic, Roman Empire, Western Roman Empire, Byzantine Empire, Julius Caesar, Mark Antony, etc. However you have to weigh in the fact that I'm in favour of BC/AD and I could be trying to manipulate you (I'm not trying to do it but one never knows :). Flamarande (talk) 12:44, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
On the other hand, we have a guideline for this at WP:ERA "Do not change from one style to another unless there is substantial reason for the change, and consensus for the change with other editors." - basically if an article starts with one system it should stay unless etc. Dougweller (talk) 16:09, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
