Linking years[edit]

With regards to this edit. In the first few years that Wikipedia existed all dates were linked. There was a large discussion and it was decided to stop doing it because most editors considered it to be overlinking. It is currently in the Wikipedia Manual of Style see the following link WP:YEARLINK for the relevant section. -- PBS (talk) 20:36, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Invitation to join Wikiproject Military History[edit]

Disambiguation link notification for October 2[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited John II of France, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Brabant (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help.

References[edit]

Hello Qmbv, thank you for your contributions to improve history-related articles. However, please make sure to provide independent reliable sources (expert books, journals, etc.) to verify the added information. You'll find more information about this aspect of Wikipedia-editing at WP:V and WP:RS. A basic "how to" guide to add references to articles is available at WP:REFB. Also, please do not tag significant additions of content as "minor" edits. This tag is commonly only used for typo fixes, formatting and other uncontroversial cleanup edits (see Help:Minor edit). Thank you for your consideration - please feel free to ping me, if you have any further questions. Best regards. GermanJoe (talk) 23:19, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

Information icon Thank you for your contributions. Please mark your edits, such as your recent edits to Template:Norman Dukes, as "minor" only if they are minor edits. In accordance with Help:Minor edit, a minor edit is one that the editor believes requires no review and could never be the subject of a dispute. Minor edits consist of things such as typographical corrections, formatting changes or rearrangement of text without modification of content. Additionally, the reversion of clear-cut vandalism and test edits may be labeled "minor". Thank you. DrKay (talk) 08:16, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

Ways to improve Siege of Tartas[edit]

Hi, I'm TonyBallioni. Qmbv, thanks for creating Siege of Tartas!

I've just tagged the page, using our page curation tools, as having some issues to fix. Consider adding more references to help verify the information.

The tags can be removed by you or another editor once the issues they mention are addressed. If you have questions, you can leave a comment on my talk page. Or, for more editing help, talk to the volunteers at the Teahouse.

Baumgaertner's book[edit]

Royal Interlude: Book II of the Adventures of William Howard and Hugh Fitzalan in Fifteenth Century England, by Gene Baumgaertner, is a work of fiction and Baumgaertner is not an historian. --Kansas Bear (talk) 06:42, 25 December 2017 (UTC)

It claims to have been written in 1499 and is self-published, and that alone disqualifies it as a source. Doug Weller talk 08:10, 26 December 2017 (UTC)

Warning[edit]

Stop icon

Your recent editing history shows that you are currently engaged in an edit war. To resolve the content dispute, please do not revert or change the edits of others when you are reverted. Instead of reverting, please use the talk page to work toward making a version that represents consensus among editors. The best practice at this stage is to discuss, not edit-war. See BRD for how this is done. If discussions reach an impasse, you can then post a request for help at a relevant noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. In some cases, you may wish to request temporary page protection.

Being involved in an edit war can result in your being blocked from editing—especially if you violate the three-revert rule, which states that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. Undoing another editor's work—whether in whole or in part, whether involving the same or different material each time—counts as a revert. Also keep in mind that while violating the three-revert rule often leads to a block, you can still be blocked for edit warring—even if you don't violate the three-revert rule—should your behavior indicate that you intend to continue reverting repeatedly. --Kansas Bear (talk) 22:11, 25 December 2017 (UTC)
