Regarding deletion of reference in Greek Dark Ages article[edit]

You deleted the reference of the following text: "Around this time, large-scale revolts took place in several parts of the eastern Mediterranean. Attempts to overthrow existing kingdoms were made as a result of economic and political instability by surrounding people, who were already plagued with famine and hardship." I did not put that text in the article, it was another editor, but I found the source recently and I decided to place it there anyway. Of course that source is not too reliable, but it's the only source. So putting "citation needed" tag is useless as there is no other source as far as I know. Maybe the solution is to change all the phrase and find a new reference. --Carlos Eduardo Aramayo B. (talk) 03:50, 23 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hey, thanks for your reply. If the only source that supports that text isn't reliable, that would be reason to simply remove the text. I do think the article would benefit from a characterization of the LBA/EIA transition, and for that you might look at recent(ish) work by Guy Middleton and Oliver Dickinson. (I might eventually do so myself but I'm short on time at the moment.) Botterweg14 (talk) 16:45, 23 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

The article Bin Tepe you nominated as a good article has failed ; see Talk:Bin Tepe for reasons why the nomination failed. If or when these points have been taken care of, you may apply for a new nomination of the article.
