Naming Conventions: Monarchs

(Not sure if this is the right page, but it is a notice regarding applicable guideline for many of your articles; please move if it would be better on one of your other pages). The naming convention for monarchs has previously been an exception to Wikipedia's general naming conventions. Efforts are now being made to bring them in line, with a propoasl for the most common name for a monarch to take precedence. (eg. William the Conqueror, Napoleon Bonaparte, Mary, Queen of Scots.) Please consider the proposals at Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (names and titles)#Proposals to change Monarchal naming conventions so we can get wide consensus on this matter. Thanks.

Page in project scope protected

I've just protected Ming Dynasty, a featured article in scope for this project, giving it its second protection in under a month. Both have been caused by edit warring about maps and discussion - the issue being Tibet. Editors from this wikiproject are likely to have minimal political axes to grind on the issue, and thus could prove helpful. If folks could go review the dispute, do some independent research, and help find a consensus that will stick I would appreciate it. GRBerry 15:36, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Pages needing expansion

Just though I'd litter your talk page with a few article links (that are within your scope) that need expansion (in the hope that somebody here has some time to help out!)...I will do some expansion myself but I would appreciate any help! Thanks ! --Cameron (t|p|c) 19:12, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

GA under review

Hello there, the article Cannon in the Middle Ages, which falls under the auspices of this Wikiproject, has come under review as part of GA Sweeps and a number of problems have been identified and listed on the talk page. If these problems have not begun to be addressed by seven days from this notice, the article will be delisted from GA and will have to go through the GAN process all over again to regain its status once improvements have been made. If you have any questions, please drop me a line.--Jackyd101 (talk) 13:56, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Anglo-Saxon literature GA?

I'm planning to delist this article son, due to lack of sourcing. It was promoted in 2005, and the criteria are applied more strictly now, and imo this doesn't pass a number of them. Please let me know on the reassessment page if any of you disagree, or plan to do the (large) improvments needed, then i'll wait longer. Thanks!Yobmod (talk) 10:15, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Causes of the Black Death

Causes of the Black Death has been listed as within the scope of this project. Since the question of causes seems more of a scientific question and the Black Death is not an issue specific to the Middle-Ages, I am not quite sure this makes sense. While most of the sources listed are historians, that, in my eyes, is part of the problem of the article. Much space is given to people talking way outside their field of expertise. --213.209.110.45 (talk) 15:13, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

FYI: New articles

A bot has been set up, which looks through the new Wikipedia articles and picks up those that are likely related to the Middle Ages. The search results are available at User:AlexNewArtBot/MiddleAgesSearchResult and are normally updated on a daily basis. Colchicum (talk) 01:29, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
