Some Moron[edit]

Decided to add him under the famous births section. Just doing my part on Wikipedia by removing it.

Valid Name Removal[edit]

Hello. I added Liam Gloster to the births section. I did a report about him and the magnetized car idea, which I originally read about in a magazine publication.


There is absolutely no reason to have the UK release of his album in the Events section. It is not significant in any way. There fore, I will remove it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Shealer (talkcontribs) 15:48, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Who exactly is "1991 - Alexander Smith, Israeli spokesman for the discrimination of the Jews" listed under births? It sounds like it could be someone adding themselves just for fun. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:57, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Is there a way to stop static IPs from editing a page?[edit] seems to have a history of vandalism and nothing but. I'm getting too old and tired for this kind of stuff. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Pakopako (talkcontribs) 15:55, 1 October 2007 (UTC) (Ack, another "sign" I'm slowing down)Pakopako 21:28, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

I know what you mean. The topic has been debated to death. Always comes out in favor of open editing.--Work permit 02:43, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

1811 steamboat[edit]

Is '1811 – The first steamboat to sail the Mississippi River arrives in New Orléans, Louisiana' correct? See 'The first steamboat to travel the full length of the Lower Mississippi from the Ohio River to New Orleans was the New Orleans in December 1811' in the Mississippi River entry.Radavenport (talk) 21:00, 24 September 2012 (UTC)


I think you will find that Lawrence did not capture Damascus

Lawrence was involved in the build-up to the capture of Damascus in the final weeks of the war. Much to his disappointment, and contrary to instructions he had issued, he was not present at the city's formal surrender, arriving several hours after the city had fallen. Lawrence entered Damascus around 9am on 1 October 1918, but was only the third arrival of the day, the first being the 10th Australian Light Horse Brigade, led by Major A.C.N. 'Harry' Olden who formally accepted the surrender of the city from acting Governor Emir Said. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:52, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

The Desert Mounted Corps moved across the Golan Heights and captured Damascus on 1 October. Between 19 September and 2 October, the Australian Mounted Division lost 21 killed and 71 wounded, and captured 31,335 Turkish prisoners.[85] To restore calm in the city, Chauvel ordered a show of force. Lieutenant Colonel T. E. Lawrence later lampooned this as a "triumphal entry" but it was actually a shrewd political stroke,[86] freeing Chauvel's forces to advance another 300 km to Aleppo, which was captured on 25 October. Five days later, Turkey surrendered.[87] For this victory, Chauvel was again mentioned in despatches.[88] — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:05, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Half Life 3 confirmed[edit]

Also, 4chan was born on this day in 2003
This is all vital information for humanity. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:16, 2 October 2013 (UTC)

World Vexillology Day[edit]

World Vexillology Day, or Vexiday, has been declared for this day starting in 2016 by a number of sponsoring vexillological associations around the world. The observance is described at Some members of sponsoring organizations have attempted to add this observance, but it has been deleted. Is it possible to have it added? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:10, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Leningrad to Saint Petersburg[edit]

1991 – Leningrad is formally renamed Saint Petersburg I understand it does not have a source and that is why it is removed. I would ask if someone has access to old newspapers online check it out. It was in the newspapers. Also can I ask I don't see any entry on this date or any date with a "source" so why are not all of the entries removed or sourced ? are they grandfathered in ?
