List of Roman Emperors[edit]

This list is of a good quality.Daanschr 14:58, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

1.Object. Needs references. The TOC would be more useful if aligned to the right of the article. The text of the lead needs expansion, probably making a mention of the different dynasties. All those capital letters make the tables look a bit messy... but then that's how Latin used to be written so I'm not really sure how you could fix that. Also, most of the names in a row link to the same person (for obvious reasons) and that's redundant, so please link an article only once. Finally you need to explain why "Personal name & Title..." and "Imperial name" is missing from some Emperors. -- Rune Welsh | ταλκ 15:29, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

Comment. Latin is written/punctuated like modern English, with capital & lower case letters. (I have a number of books in Latin that follow this format; the Latin Wikipedia also follows this standard.) The more more significant question concerns the letters "j" & "v", which did not exist then: do we add them or omit them -- there are good reasons for both. -- llywrch 00:33, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
I'm quite sure classical Latin was written all capitals but anyway, I think the issues you raise belong more in the article's talk page. -- Rune Welsh | ταλκ 01:04, 9 February 2006 (UTC)

2.Object, I agree with him regarding the imperial and personal names. They are also sometimes confusing(Caesar Nero's personal names, for example. It also was not mentioned that he later added Imperator to his imperial name.) --Anglius 19:51, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

  • Object The introduction looks choppy. Convert it to paragraph format. Otherwise the formatting is excellent. I can't comment on technical accuracy.
