I don't see why you had to close the previous discussion on this page. If anything it just proves you are in the wrong. Any rational person can see that AppleMonkey was being civil and was not trolling. Just how they can see that this page is full of Bias. I showed it to people I know who hate Trump and even they agreed. I have no doubt that you will close this discussion as well because thats just who you are. I also have no doubt that if someone did this about say Hillary or Obama you would be the first one to tell them what a sexist/rascist bigot they are. You don't win the agruement by plugging your fingers in your ears going "nah nah nah nah nah". You win by ingaging in a civil discussion.
What's on your mind?
Don't get me wrong, I hate Trump as much as the next guy but it really should just stick to facts and not political opinions.
Further to Talk: Ford's Theatre#Assassination of Abraham Lincoln Article, in addition to the elimination of the Lincoln and Booth sub-sections, I think the following should also be done:
For the record: Talk: Charles Lindbergh#Lindbergh Jr. on why I think both should be kept rather than deleting the father.
For the record, this Talk: Time-viewer#Delete or Not For Real is where we decided to keep all articles / sub-sections with time-viewer records rather than remove them to "Hist. Refs."
Why is this message popping every time I click on a link? It used to do this only if I tried to leave a page I had edited and not saved. I'm finding this irritating and am wondering if there is a way to turn this off. I didn't see anything in "Preferences". Suggestions? ML4E (talk) 18:27, May 9, 2019 (UTC)
I have been looking through the Southern Victory series and was unable to find any evidence that the Empire of Japan ever annexed Indochina from the French. Still, people throughout the wiki and the internet in general talk about Indochina being annexed. Does anyone know where in the books, if at all, it mentions Indochina’s annexation? Thanks.
I have started receiving the following message at the top of any article with a banner:
- "ShowHide is no longer supported, but is in use on this page. You should consider switching to the MediaWiki collapsible selectors, such as class="mw-collapsible". See the Collapsing help page for more details."
I have just removed a number of photos Jonathan had used to illustrate fictional characters created by Turtledove. I will tolerate that for actors playing the part for the actual characters (e.g. the "Three Men and ..." stories). Likewise historical figures filling in for fantasy counterparts like those in tWBtP. However, these serve no useful purpose in "Of Mice and Chicks" where there is a gender change of the two main characters. "Running of the Bulls" is even less useful since the characters are sapient dinosaurs. ML4E (talk) 19:29, January 30, 2018 (UTC)
So I'm currently reading World War (Striking the Balance) and still I haven't figured out something:
Is Moishe the guy's name or is it a title? I thought it was his name but then I heard it's a title of respect
I am Stepintime, a user from the Alternative History Wiki, a creative writing wiki where people can write whatever stories they wish concerning alternative history.
I agree that Harry Turtledove is a great author for the Alternative History genre, and I think there may be an overlap of interest between the Harry Turtledove Wiki and the Alternative History Wiki.
While I visiting I saw that your Wiki had a list of other alternative history wikis, I think adding the Alternative History Wiki to the list would be good for users looking for Alternative History Content.
If I was given permission I would also like to write a couple sentences about the Alternative History Wiki, on your Alternative History Page.
Please come visit our Wiki, and feel welcome to contribute! Have a nice day
Johnathan has been adding links in the OTL portions of the articles which is fine since many of the linked articles were created after the original was written. However, some seem to me to be misleading since they are within bigger items. Some examples from the top of my head:
- "Treaty of Paris" had Paris linked that tells the clicker nothing about the Treaty.
- "Dying Earth genre" had Earth linked. Not only is that pedantic, but it tells you nothing about the genre.
- "British Civil Service" had British linked. If the article were a Wikipedia one, it might have had a useful sub-section but not an article written for our purposes.
Others are marginal and I left them alone such as the belligerents in various wars we hadn't had a need to write-up. Others were railroads whose name included a particular city or state. The second one I would remove in some cases if I knew enough for it to be misleading. As an example, we do have an article on the "Canadian Pacific Railway" but if we didn't then a link to Canada would be fine but one to the Pacific Ocean would be misleading. Similarly, there were several articles on ACW generals with links added for various OTL armies that didn't have articles so were lined on the place name (e.g. Army of Northern Virginia would have Virginia linked). Again, I think this is misleading so removed the links.
