Is Le Griffon launched in 1678 or 1679? The page for August 7th conflicts with the page for Le Griffon. These types of errors are prevalent all throughout wikipedia and often make me doubt the validity of the material.
Is it just me, or is this not appropriate for this page: Neolux 06:57, 7 Aug 2003 (UTC)

DeviantART removed. Not on the level of importance with the remaining list.
- It is the largest art community on the internet with over a million users. Id say that makes it pretty important. Kamiawolf 18:35, 22 May 2006 (UTC)
- 1945 - President Harry Truman announces the bombing of Hiroshima with an atomic bomb while returning from the Potsdam Conference aboard the heavy cruiser USS Augusta (CA-31) in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
I removed "successful" from this sentence (after "announces the" and before "bombing." I realize "successful" implies that the U.S. hit its target and the bomb exploded (although they really weren't sure how big the explosion would be), but, I'm no political correctness nut, but I find it just a bit old-fashioned to characterize a nuclear bombing of civilians as a "successful" action. I also corrected a typographical error in the entry regarding Iraq (the spelling of slaughtered was missing a "t"; "slaughter" is another provocative war, but I don't know whether the events of this event are in dispute or not).--188.8.131.52 18:55, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Russia - Georgia wrong date
- Russia entered South Ossetia on August 8. (According to the linked support in Georgia.) -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 08:15, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
South Ossetia didn't belong to Russia. It declared its independence from Georgia in 1990s. Georgia tried to conquer South Ossetia but Russia protected it. The independence of South Ossetia is accepted by several countries, including Russia. You wrote wrong that Georgia tried to reclaim South Ossetia from Russia. (User talk:Skoglund)
1606 – The first documented performance of Macbeth, at the Great Hall at Hampton Court. This links through to Macbeth which says: "The earliest account of a performance of what was likely Shakespeare's play is April 1611"
- Yah, the Date and text section of the Macbeth article seems to directly contradict this 1606 claim. I have removed it. Thanks for pointing it out. Winston365 (talk) 21:13, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
The page lists her as being born August 7, 1998. The link to her Wiki page has her born neither on August 7, nor in 1998.
Emily Anderson, OBE (March 1891 – October 1962) was a British Foreign Office official and scholar of German.
- Vanity entry. Can be removed on sight. No need for discussion. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 00:19, 7 February 2013 (UTC)
Linked Thor Heyerdahl page contradicts this page
The August 7 page entry for Thor Heyerdahl (1947 event) states that his journey was 7000 kilometers (4300 mi), but the article about him gives the distance as 8000 km (5000 mi). TravelinTexan (talk) 00:55, 7 August 2021 (UTC)
