Cleanup/Wikification NeededEdit

  1. Games of the Small States of Europe This can be expanded quite largely by adding the categories "Future Members" "Future Competition" adding to the "sporting Disciplines" and the chart for number of times a microstate has became victorious in a specific sport or one it overall. Teh Ferret 22:16, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
  2. History of Malta This article presents several unbalanced, POV statements. We have a unique problem with regards to Maltese history, due mainly to the small size of its population, and the fact that there are two main political parties with very different opinions regarding the root causes of key historical events, their significance for Malta, and their impact on the country generally. Where the conflict or disagreement itself, on any key issue, is significant enough, I recommend that we present a plurality of positions. However, we need to work harder at ensuring that any opinions expressed are properly backed up by reference to a reputable source. lamato(talk) 22:53, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
