en:Tierra del Fuego gold rush[edit]

(Net support = 4; Against = 16.667%)

Between 1883 and 1906 Tierra del Fuego experienced a gold rush attracting a large number of Chileans, Argentines and Europeans to the archipelago, including a large number of Dalmatians. The gold rush led to the formation of the first towns in the archipelago and fueled economic growth in Punta Arenas. After the gold rush was over, most gold diggers left the archipelago, while the remaining settlers engaged in sheep farming and fishing. Indigenous Selk'nam populations declined sharply during the rush.

en:Fairbank train robbery[edit]

(Net support = 4; Against = 0%)

The Fairbank train robbery occurred on the night of February 15, 1900, when some bandits attempted to hold up a Wells Fargo express car at the town of Fairbank, Arizona. Although it was thwarted by Jeff Milton, who managed to kill "Three Fingered Jack" Dunlop in an exchange of gunfire, the train robbery was unique for being one of the few to have occurred in a public place and was also one of the last during the Old West period.

Comment Comment Reference 4 is a dead link. Can someone fix it? // Zquid (talk) 14:04, 25 December 2018 (UTC)

I cannot access the newspaper outside the USA, that's not helping in general. all these occurances on Waybackmachine are not working. I have however added another source regarding the main manufacturers, I think that the other details can simply be skipped from the translation. In the end information such as price tag or assemble time are not so crucial.--Alexmar983 (talk) 21:58, 25 December 2018 (UTC)

  1. The article does not exist in many "major" languages. I make this proposal because this is the month celeberating the "great Union of 1918" and there are edit-a-thons currently promoting Romanian history and articles. Since I have noticed that Romanian topics were rarely presented here, I made this suggestion. The article is well sourced and full of very useful red links as a suggestion for further translation. --Alexmar983 (talk) 00:50, 16 December 2018 (UTC)
  2. Writer, was one of the most important personalities of culture in Romania. Translating his biography during the Centenary for the Great Union celebrations would be a good signal of diversity, for those minor languages not so covered in Wikipedia. --Camelia (talk) 01:16, 16 December 2018 (UTC)
