Wikipedia:Cleanup Taskforce/Mayerling

Frankly, this article is in a terrible state. Partially due to the nature of the subject, I can find little reputable or verifiable information about this event. The Wikipedia articles for the Baroness and Rudolf give conflicting information and the external links are also contradictory. I've tried to fix some of the more glaring inaccuracies and take out some of the frankly sensationalistic tone. It mostly needs fact checking and hopefully some published sources to back soem of this stuff up. I know it's a lot to ask, but given that there is so much information out there, Wikipedia can at least be authoritatively ambigous. =) Kerowyn 09:33, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

I can pop in to help, but not with any regularity. Added to User:Jtmichcock/Desk Kerowyn 09:33, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

I've been considering splitting the article into two seperate ones; the Mayerling article should detail Mayerling only (with a small paragraph on the incident and a link to the second article), a new article should detail the Mayerling Incident.

So, I've given it another once over. I think what's needed here are actual citations. The original article keeps refering to "reports" without many specifics. It seems like there are at least three; the intial report of suicide, a second report that casts doubt on the first, and the report included with the papal nuncio. Piece o' cake, right? --Kerowyn Leave a note 06:43, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
