    [–] Are the conflicts between Christianity and Islam today bad blood caused by medieval wars between the two religions? jschooltiger 2 points ago in AskHistorians

    We ask that answers in this subreddit be in-depth and comprehensive, and highly suggest that comments include citations for the information. In the future, please take the time to better familiarize yourself with the rules, and take these key points into account before crafting an answer:

    Thank you!

    [–] Name of a historical person who failed to raise money for their invention or business? jschooltiger 1 points ago in AskHistorians

    Sorry, we don't allow "example seeking" questions. It's not that your question was bad; it's that these kinds of questions tend to produce threads that are collections of disjointed, partial, inadequate responses. If you have a question about a specific historical event, period, or person, feel free to rewrite your question and submit it again. If you don't want to rewrite it, you might try submitting it to /r/history, /r/askhistory, or /r/tellmeafact.

    For further explanation of the rule, feel free to consult this META thread.

    [–] Why has "autistic" colloquially taken the place of using "retard" when many of the greatest minds in history are thought to be on the spectrum? jschooltiger 0 points ago in AskHistorians

    Hi there -- we've had to remove this question as we don't allow slurs ("retard") in thread titles. You may want to reword it and ask again, but keep in mind that the term "retarded" has been dropped from use by the medical community, though it survives as a legal term of art.

    A better way to ask the question might be to ask about how we retroactively diagnose mental states, such as autism, with regard to people in the past.

    [–] Shortages and Use of Resources during WWII jschooltiger 3 points ago in AskHistorians

    Hey there -- while our historians here may be able to offer some more suggestions, A World at Arms and Why the Allies Won jump out to me from our WWII books list.

    [–] What is the history behind the administration of this subreddit? jschooltiger 16 points ago in AskHistorians

    Where's the hyperbole? The sex show thread that (presumably) brought you here from r/all has close to 700 comments, of which maybe 10 or so are useful.

    [–] What is the history behind the administration of this subreddit? jschooltiger 17 points ago in AskHistorians

    Then it may be that this subreddit just isn't for you. If you'd rather see 600+ jokes, memes and complaints about deleted comments, r/history or r/askreddit might be more relevant to you. Our position is that the whole rest of the Internet is there to do that on; here, you should expect quality answers by people who know what they're talking about.

    [–] What is the event, person, or period on which historians' view has most changed in recent decades because the old prevailing view is now seen as compromised by a Protestant bias? jschooltiger 1 points ago in AskHistorians

    We ask that answers in this subreddit be in-depth and comprehensive, and highly suggest that comments include citations for the information. In the future, please take the time to better familiarize yourself with the rules and our Rules Roundtable on Speculation.

    [–] Could the United States have ended WWII without ever using ground forces and only relying on the atomic bomb? jschooltiger 1 points ago in AskHistorians

    Sorry, but your submission has been removed because we don't allow hypothetical questions. If possible, please feel free to rephrase the question so that it does not call for such speculation, and resubmit. Otherwise, this sort of thing is better suited for /r/HistoryWhatIf. You can find a more in-depth discussion of this rule here.

    If you'd like to resubmit the question, a rewording that would work is "how important were the atomic bombs in ending the war, compared to the Soviet invasion of Manchuria and the threatened invasion of the Home Islands by U.S. forces."

    [–] How important have aircraft carriers been to winning superpower-on-superpower warfare? jschooltiger 1 points ago in AskHistorians

    We ask that answers in this subreddit be in-depth and comprehensive, and highly suggest that comments include citations for the information. In the future, please take the time to better familiarize yourself with the rules and our Rules Roundtable on Speculation.

    You've been warned once before about posting a rule-breaking answer. If you do this again, you will be banned.

    [–] Proposed move of Mizzou student section, visitors section jschooltiger 1 points ago in CFB

    That's a good question. I would assume they wouldn't want the noise there, but who knows.

    [–] Why are the states west of the Mississippi river larger and have simpler shapes than the states east of it? jschooltiger 1 points ago in AskHistorians

    [–] Do Americans actually know about the Spanish Dollar? jschooltiger 2 points ago in AskHistorians

    Sure -- but what are you asking about, specifically? By "actually know about" do you mean whether the monetary policy of the early Republic is taught in schools?

    [–] Flaired Users: How representative is this list? jschooltiger 1 points ago in AskHistorians

    Don't worry about it -- you can contact us to remove a theme flair, which get auto-tagged on keywords. I went ahead and did it. The question is fine.

    [–] Proposed move of Mizzou student section, visitors section jschooltiger 1 points ago in CFB

    I don't know, actually. That would be a good follow up question to ask.

    [–] Proposed move of Mizzou student section, visitors section jschooltiger 1 points ago in CFB

    I don't know that the 50 is a "requirement," but I did read that the SEC requires 1000 visiting seats in the lower bowl. It kind of makes sense to me to move the visiting fans into that area, given that rule and the fact that you can't have students behind the visitor bench.
