    All sources must be reliable for the topic to which they are applied; however, this is a minimal condition for use, rather than a final goal. With the exception of certain recent topics that have not yet become the subject of extensive secondary analysis, history articles in general and articles related to Greek history, in particular, should aim to be based primarily on published secondary works by reputable historians. The use of high-quality primary sources is also appropriate, but care sh...


    The nature of historical material requires that articles be thoroughly—even exhaustively—cited. There is no numerical requirement for a particular density of citations or for some predetermined number of citations in an article; editors are expected to use their best judgement as to how much citation is appropriate. When in doubt, cite; additional citations are harmless at worst, and may prove invaluable in the long term. In general, an article may use either footnotesor Harvard-style referen...

    Popular culture

    In "popular culture" sections should be avoided unless the subject has had a well-cited and notable impact on popular culture. If present, the section should be a prose discussion of the subject's cultural significance, cited from reliable sources. In particular, the following should be avoided: 1. 1.1. Compendiums of every trivial appearance of the subject in pop culture (trivia) 1.2. Unsupported speculation about cultural significance or fictional likenesses (original research)

    In historical articles, the past tenseis strongly preferred. While history can be written in the present tense, the general audience of Wikipedia will usually expect the past tense on historical subjects and events that occurred in the past. The present tense in English is only correctly used to describe past events in a work of fiction. This is referred to as the "historical past tense". Remain objective as possible. The point and ideal of Wikipedia is to create an encyclopedic neutral body of knowledge. Avoid using the first-person point of view (emphasising the facts; not the editor). Explain the evidence (from the links and references) and explain the reasons of any conclusions.

    This task force is dedicated to the history, culture, and people of the Byzantine Empire (and successor states like the Empire of Trebizond) and the wider Byzantine commonwealth, from the early 4th century to the fall of the last Byzantine remnants in the second half of the 15th century. It aims to serve as a point of reference for editors interested in the topic and will facilitate some administrative tasks on Byzantine-related articles, and as the Wikipedia-internal counterpart to the Byzantine Empire Portal. A (mostly) complete, manually updated listing of all Byzantine-related articles can be found at the Index of Byzantine Empire-related articles. If you wish to contribute, a good place to begin is the list of missing articles (redlinks). Newly created or greatly expanded articles should be added to the new articles pageof the Byzantine Empire Portal. Related projects and task forces are the Classical Greece and Rome WikiProject, which covers Late Antiquity (early Byzantine per...

  5. Many thanks. Rhadow ( talk) 19:08, 22 November 2017 (UTC) @ Rhadow: - Your ongoing inputs to the WikiProject Trains project are all negative, unhelpful and unwanted. As I have stated to you before, if your only purpose on Wikipedia is to PROD articles, busy then you have misunderstood the purpose of the encyclopedia.
