This is ultimately a tough call, but I also find the whole emotional -- and biased -- outpouring in the article to be wholly inappropriate(the whole "dark day" especially.). I guess if somebody wants to give a differing view they write one up, like rider said.

I was just wondering: Did people think my paper '69 AD: Year of the Four Emperors' was too heavy? I know that most people here read at a leisurely level and probably do not like being bogged down by the notes(especially since mine I think was a bit overloaded).

I personally have a habit of swinging towards the 'heavy' side.

So were people bothered by the longevity and the number of annotations? What would be a proper amount?
Should anymore of my articles be written in that fashion or would you guys like them to be simpler, perhaps with as little notes as possible?

Opinions can be sent to my PM, I look forward to comments by those who did and those who didnt read it.

I actually think that although 'light' articles will forever be the larger part, a few of these 'heavy' ones are a necessity.
There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no chaos, there is harmony.
There is no death, there is the Force.

Are you referring to which section it belongs in on the main site? I would say "Classical Mediterranean and Europe: The Roman Military". I look forward to reading it!

I read that one, and it was good, no reason to cut down on content, to focus on a period of mere months, and to do an in depth long study is the point in history isn't it. Good article.

How often is this Magazine? Because it takes about 3-6 weeks for me to be able to get an article done- sources, evaluation, use of libraries and such. Also, please can some of you guys look over my article about Titus Quincitius Flaminius and the 2nd Macedonian war in the Ancient Med section? I would really like some kind of input...

We try to get one every month.. but we often fail.
