Good correction on Peterborough Chronicle. Some attempted to go from the beginning of the world, others from the Incarnation, etc. What I had been trying to suggest with the sentence was that the Chronicles began by using synopses of history before then going into the eye witnessed histories that we usually associate with a "chronicle."

Thanks for your excellent and much appreciated work at Lanval. I did some edits, mostly for style, so please take a look to make sure I didn't miss or alter anything important.--Cúchullain t/c 04:09, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Ring around the Rosey[edit]

I really liked your input at the page. Please don't take my attempt to rewrite as a refutation of your efforts, I liked the changes that you made and apprecaited the research you made. The Opie does not appear to posit to suggest the plague is the interpretation, rather he seems just to note it. That essay also was talking about the murkey origins. Although I appreciate the urge to keep things balanced and open-ended, the contextual proof in this case is very very weak for a more literal interpretation. I think increasing the article to talk about the passion the interpretation inspires in people would certainly be on topic. Anyway, thank you for your help and I hope none of rerply seemed snippy. Tone is hard to convey on here and I truly think you are fair minded and appreciate your contribution. leontes 03:13, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

History of europe[edit]

Hello Martin, yes maybe the intro could be a little less crap (that's the irony I'm guessing?!). I mean, just fiddle around with it if you think that you've got a bit more linguistic flair (and I'm sure you do). Looking back at the old one though, really, the last three out of four paragraphs were all from the 18th century on. It was a bit weighted, which I suppose is why I just thought I'd get rid of the lot and restart. All the same information I believe is there as before, isn't it? As for the section headings, the way I came up with them is that I made them up, of course! Don't you like them? "War and peace" isn't that bad is it? It pretty accurately describes the twentieth century (the first half was quite a lot of war, the second half quite a lot peace!) even if it is ripping Tolstoy off. What really matters of course is that the blanks be filled!! I think I've improved the article at least a bit. Wikidea 18:33, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 10:05, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
