Picture Dua Lipa[edit]

Ok a few weeks i added Dua Lipa on the Births list.

I added a picture that was also on her own page here the page that she was written about her. Now that picture here is GONE. WHY?. I did it in the same way others had and it looked fine so why did it get removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:45, 2 December 2016 (UTC) Ok I have an account now and I tried I again but now it looked a mess in fact it did not show I wish you had left me alone cause that authorization thing as said is nonsense the Wiki is full of unauthorized stuff cause otherwise there would be almost no pictures here.That page that showed me how to do it correctly just gave me a headache I bet it can be explained better

Bose-Einstein condensate[edit]

26-June-2007: The years 1900-1999 got a condensed Table of Contents after 28May07. See Talk:1950#Format (and "Talk:1950#Condensed TOC"). -Wikid77 22:53 26-June-2007


"Russia almost launches a nuclear" is that npov ?

2004 page layout years[edit]

There is a discussion on my talk page on page layout.

For most of the last three hundred years there is inconsistency and duplication between the year in topic paragraph, the "see also" box and what is on the year by topic pages. Prior to 1950 I am pretty convinced we can painlessly (except for sore fingers) delete all of the year in topic paragraphs and ensure that the material goes into a "see also" box, creating such a box where none exists. Post 1950, particularly from the "year in US television" link a lot of material has been added to this paragraph as highlights (sometimes making up most of the page content pointed at).

Personally I think we should still delete the paragraph, keep the box linking to the topic sites and move any particularly important parts of the year in topic paragraph to the main chronological list. This does involve undoing quite a bit of work which someone has done.

Therefore, unlike for prior to 1950 (where I've said no objection= I do it) for post 1950 I won't touch these pages unless a significant number of people agree with the change. (I am also unlikely to get the pre 1950 stuff done before summer unless the service speed improves dramatically). talk--BozMo 13:41, 7 May 2004 (UTC)


I removed a reference to the Nov 22 Earthquake being possibly thought of as "Divine" anger at some EU-Israel treaty. I think if this is true then the event should have its own page and a discussion of what happened, along with external references. I'm fairly certain that this page is meant only as a summary rather than a detailed examination of the subject. One Salient Oversight 04:26, 21 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Children of notable people[edit]

There has been a bit of discussion on Talk:2005, having notable parents does not make someone's birth inherently notable. I hadn't the heart to delete Dolly the sheep though. PatGallacher 11:28, 2005 May 30 (UTC)

Gotta cite my addition[edit]

January-June Births[edit]

What on Earth happened here? Hallpriest9 (Talk | Archive) 05:09, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

I've fixed it. In the future please just delete any redlink additions as nn. Carl.bunderson (talk) 18:59, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Windows95BOXSHOT.png[edit]

The image Image:Windows95BOXSHOT.png is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

March 16 of wrong century?[edit]

"March 16 – Mississippi ratifies the Thirteenth Amendment, becoming the last state to approve the abolition of slavery. The amendment was nationally ratified in 1865."

Has this been posted in the wrong year? Thaumaturgus (talk) 21:00, 10 September 2009 (UTC)Thaum

Sadly, that's true. Thank God constitutional amendments don't require unanimous vote. MightyArms (talk) 22:03, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

june 2 typo[edit]

can someone fix the text 'ndash' at june 2nd which should be a hyphen instead?

Done... ttonyb (talk) 05:53, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Dead link[edit]

During several automated bot runs the following external link was found to be unavailable. Please check if the link is in fact down and fix or remove it in that case!

No "Births" section?[edit]

I don't know because I didn't go through the article; is there really no section for notable births , or are they mixed in with the events? (talk) 00:25, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

There is a births section below the events section. Keith D (talk) 19:32, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

adding month section to the page[edit]

How could someone add a month by month section to the 1994 and 1995 pages the same way they are added to 1996 or beyond pages? Can someone tell us how? (talk) 18:58, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

I can understand the desire to have an image of Selena in deaths, but the tribute drawing is clearly inappropriate. There is an (almost) realistic drawing, the grave, or the statue which could be added. I'd go with the statue, as en.Wikipedia recognizes "freedom of panorama". If I don't hear anything, I'll add it a day or so if this clearly inappropriate image stays off. Added more realistic drawing, although the memorial statue is probably a better choice.Arthur Rubin (talk) 15:53, 28 December 2017 (UTC)

Seems to have only one significant role...nominating for deletion, but possibly not significant enough for this article, even if kept. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 19:26, 11 February 2018 (UTC)

Harold Schultz[edit]

I don't see any reason there should be a Wikipedia article on him. All that is at all significant should be in the article on the photograph. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 23:24, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

NoNameHere just added the release of the Sony PlayStation in September 1995, but that console was first released in Japan in December 1994. I agree it's a significant event, but it should be moved to the previous year. — JFG talk 20:49, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

IIRC, the only significant console release of '95 was the Virtual Boy. Sega Saturn debuted in November '94, and the N64 wasn't released until June 1996. Technically the Game Boy Pocket and Nomad would also be listed, but those were simply variations of existing consoles. MightyArms (talk) 23:25, 27 October 2019 (UTC)


I'm not sure Ronald Kray is sufficiently important on his own to be here. He doesn't have an article of his own, but only with his brother. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 14:27, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

Importance Tags[edit]

Shameik Moore and Megan Thee Stallion are both given importance? tags next to their names [importance?]. I'm almost certain that they're of relevant importance as neither of their articles are stubs and both of them have a reasonable amount of notoriety. Especially the latter.— Preceding unsigned comment added by De132Wiki (talkcontribs) 23:20, February 8, 2020 (UTC)

De132Wiki, It's not the significance of the articles, it's the significance of the subjects. That is not demonstrated. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 15:22, 9 February 2020 (UTC)
Arthur Rubin, which is why I mentioned that both of them have a reasonable amount of notoriety. It is demonstrated. — De132Wiki (talk) 15:44, 9 February 2020 (UTC)
