New update about Silk Road.[edit]

The Silk Road is now found as 35,000 Kilometer's according to Nation Geographic after recent discovery. I'm sorry if i changed it unexpectedly but it needed to be updated. Jeffwood2001 (talk) 19:36, 5 January 2016‎ (UTC)

Jeffwood2001: Please see the discussion at Talk:Silk_Road#Length regarding this issue. There are a number of different distances listed in sources for the extent of the route. However it is unclear whether they mean the length from east to west or if they include various off-shoots. The route was also different lengths in different periods, and it eventually includes sea routes as well. As a result the length has been removed from the page as the sources vary and appear to be imprecise. Laszlo Panaflex (talk) 20:07, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Sourced to what?[edit]

source: own work?�� — Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.204.92.231 (talk) 21:35, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

The first has the source cited in the description and links to this map. The second states the source under "Notes," below the Licensing statement. There is a discussion on the talk page of the article regarding the maps. Please keep the discussion there as there are a number of editors involved. @130.204.92.231: Laszlo Panaflex (talk) 22:48, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Khazars[edit]

Thanks for the tip-off, Laszlo (and your recent lynx-eyed edits). If you think that 'by' really does require some work on it, let me know. I'm in a rush so I hope I haven't missed anything or misinterpreted. Cheers Nishidani (talk) 18:57, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

Just checked. See for the source Dan Shapira, which I think I paraphrased pretty closely. I've tired eyes though. Thank goodness, people like you are around to keep me on my toes. Cheers Nishidani (talk) 20:08, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

Philip VI[edit]

The change to Joan was also made recently by a mobile IP; I reverted to 1313. Setton gives a date of July 1313; this makes sense because it was tied to one of the elaborate Angevin marital pacts involving the Crusader states in Greece. Choess (talk) 02:52, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

Thanks! Laszlo Panaflex (talk) 02:57, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

Regarding - India[edit]

Hello, the term India was coined by British much later even though they came to India in 1600 and the country of India was formed only in 1947. So all the spice trade was made only to the Tamilagam country which was existing at that time. Please do not mislead the history. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Givetoalex (talkcontribs) 17:25, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Givetoalex Hello, da Gamo is noted for reaching India, not Tamilagam. Your wording makes it appear that his mission was to reach Tamilagam, specifically, and that he is noteworthy for reaching Tamilagam. But that would require reliable sources in support. Perhaps it is worth noting that that was where he landed, but replacing all instances of India is WP:UNDUE. Laszlo Panaflex (talk) 17:40, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Genetic studies on Moroccans[edit]

Should there be images in the Infoboxes? Thanks Doug Weller talk 05:55, 6 August 2016 (UTC)

I assume you are referring to this edit, which was reverted a while after you posted this question. I've never worked on that article, but I did support the NoEthnicGalleries policy, so I would say no. Laszlo Panaflex (talk) 13:28, 6 August 2016 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Hunter Greene (basketball)[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Hunter Greene (basketball) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Doesn't meet WP:NHOOPS

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Nick Number (talk) 21:13, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Nick Number So under this standard, only NBA players are notable on WP? Is that being enforced project-wide? This is an extreme standard that would wipe out scores of pages of college and foreign basketball players. Greene had a record breaking college career and is still a prominent figure as a radio and TV announcer of Lobo basketball games. Why is his page being singled out when those of other non-NBA players have not been? Laszlo Panaflex (talk) 23:13, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Rikster2 Jweiss11 Is the nhoops standard above being applied project wide? Seems it would have a huge effect on WikiProject College Basketball. Limiting notability to those who have played as a pro removes a lot of college record holders, like Greene; and it would mean a player could not get a page until after his college career was over. Please advise. Laszlo Panaflex (talk) 00:51, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

No, college players can meet WP:GNG and not meet NHOOPS. The intent of the guideline is to show criteria in which subject consistently meet the GNG standard. Looking at the Greene article, I would say the sourcing is weak and should be improved to show that that subject meets GNG (if he does) using reliable, independent third-party sources. You can find direction for good sources here. Just my two cents. Rikster2 (talk) 00:59, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
Regarding the sources, fair enough. The newspapers.com database ends at 1977 for the needed sourcing, and internet archives begin around 1995, so players from the 80s are a difficult case. Still, this seems like grounds for a better sourcing tag at best, not a deletion. Most of this info comes from the UNM official athletics site. Are those not considered independent RS? Laszlo Panaflex (talk) 02:33, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
No, UNM sources are not independent. They are reporting on their own athletes as part of their sports information responsibilities. They are generally reliable, but that alone doesn't confirm GNG. You can remove the PROD if you want. It isn't an WP:AFD notice. Rikster2 (talk) 02:53, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll remove the prod and work on finding better sources. Laszlo Panaflex (talk) 03:02, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
