In order to increase the quality of discussion in this forum, I'd like to remind you some important rules and add some:
official forum rules wrote:
As a consequence, one-liners will be part of the past from now on. They'll be deleted.
Another important issue concerning both history forums are the sources. You should pay attention to the following points:
1) When starting a new topic, you must be able to name your source(s). Otherwise it may be a waste of time from the beginning on.
2.a) Wikipedia is "good" to get general information on a subject but it is not supposed to be your only source. Don't take part in a discussion if you only have read wikipedia.
2.b) Wikipedia is NOT quotable.
3) General advice: Read books!
If you are being attacked by another member, please contact me via PM. I'll deal with it.
This is the list of actions I've taken in this specific sub-forum.

We all know what the forum's policy on necroposting is (To remind you, it is generally not appreciated). However, in this specific forum it is allowed to bring up a topic again which was posted some time ago.
The conditions for this are simple:
- You have a specific intelligent question concerning the topic. Please read the entire thread in order to avoid asking a question which was already discussed.
- You are able to provide an important addition to the topic. As always, when posting something new to a topic, so that the discussion can be continued, make sure to provide a link or the literature you used.
I don't have much to add to what SpetsNaz has previously stated here, but just wanted to ask everybody to be nice and behave themselves and if they see anything objectionable please report it.
Racism, Sexism and so forth will not be tolerated here. Attacks of any kind upon other members are not acceptable (no matter what you think of their opinions). I hope everybody understands those types of things are not welcome.
Make sure you've read the Forum Rules please. We take them seriously.
If anybody has any questions they are free to PM me and I'll do my best to help.
