Talk:2nd millennium BC

It says in both the 2nd and 3rd milleniums that the first Chinese sighting of a comet was in those milleniums. Can anyone confirm which millenium it really was?

And how was it possible for the Chinese to see a comet when China did not yet exist? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:00, 4 March 2011 (UTC)[reply]

To whoever changed all occurrences of "BC" to "BCE"[edit]

Are you aware of how many articles need to be changed? Do you have a plan? A [developer] could write a bot that could do change all of the terms automatically. Since they haven't done that, they may have a reason. - Brunnock 22:16, May 19, 2005 (UTC)

Too poetic?[edit]

Does anybody else think this article is far too poetic? 20:33, 6 May 2006 (UTC)[reply]

As long as it's both poetic and cogent I think it's fine. Tlogmer ( talk / contributions ) 20:54, 6 May 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Don't think so --Antariki Vandanamu 18:46, 19 June 2007 (UTC)[reply]

the article is far too poetic, and so belies the factual nature of the entry. have tidied this up a bit. Tescoid (talk) 10:33, 29 July 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Where is the NPOV dispute?[edit]

The page refers to a NPOV dispute and directs to the talk page. But where is the NPOV dispute here?--Antariki Vandanamu 18:48, 19 June 2007 (UTC)[reply]
I was just wondering about the same thing; given that nobody has seen fit to answer your question or otherwise provide an explanation here (which should be standard when an article or section is tagged as being disputed), I'll remove the tag. -- Schneelocke 12:14, 21 July 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Fall of Troy?[edit]

To the best of my knowledge, the existence of Troy is disuputed. It was part of a story involving gods and monsters, and there is only limited evidence that it ever even existed, let alone "fell" on a specific date. (talk) 21:19, 16 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Where is first Korean civilization?[edit]

Dangun founded state of Gojoseon in 2333BC, both recorded by Chinese & Korean texts. And with archaeological discoveries including Bronze daggers/arrow/spear tips and ancient Korean Dolmens are evidence of Gojoseon. I think this is worth to mention at the article.Korsentry 05:03, 28 May 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by KoreanSentry (talkcontribs)

Stars in Cave Paintings[edit]

Mention of the Lascaux cave painting in which the Pleiades star group appears would be appropriate for around 1,700 B.C. See url http://www.mazzaroth.com/ChapterOne/LascauxCave.htm SyntheticET (talk) 18:52, 9 January 2010 (UTC)[reply]

you missed a zero there, the Lascaux paintings date to about 17,000 BC, not 1,700 BC. --dab (𒁳) 13:39, 10 January 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

  • http://wysinger.homestead.com/article10.html
    Triggered by \bwysinger\.homestead\.com\b on the local blacklist

If you would like me to provide more information on the talk page, contact User:Cyberpower678 and ask him to program me with more info.

Just wondering why there is no mention of Assyria on this page, even in the list of civilizations? Joaquimds (talk) 14:51, 25 May 2018 (UTC)[reply]
