  • Looks like we have another case of Wikipedia contradicting itself. The intro to Egyptian pyramids states "Most were built as tombs for the country's pharaohs". Gamaliel (talk) 18:59, 7 November 2015 (UTC)[reply]
Does anybody else think that Stevo's pic looks phoney?
  • The Ahmadiyya Jabrayilov story/article reflects a bigger problem of what to do with Communist propaganda sources. Sure we could completely disallow these as not being reliable sources, but then there would be almost no "reliable sources" on 50 years of Soviet history (at least for the smaller, internal stories; wars, spaceshots and such are a different matter), and a big chunk of mainland Chinese history. This type of problem has come up at Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya and Pavlik Morozov and Stjepan Filipović. The 2 first-named articles now look like they've handled it pretty well.

      • Since the shit hit the fan, just wait and see what mainstream write. Staszek Lem (talk) 03:33, 11 November 2015 (UTC)[reply]
