comment Did it make sense for the Roman Empire to build a great wall?
When it made sense (geographically & politically), they did. See: Antonine Wall & Hadrian's Wall.

comment Primary sources from Umayyad times
@CGCampbell We exclude reference requests because more often than not they turn into open ended & wildy subjective polls (opinionated book reviews, etc). Sometimes, they also attract outright spam. I don't think a question asking for primary sources is in any danger of that.

Archistrategos is a military term, not a political one.

comment Was Alexander the Great ever an emperor?
We don't know for sure if Alexander adopted the title of Shahanshah. That said, I don't think it matters. He was the defacto leader of the largest state of its time.

comment What was the relatively most populous city in history?
@MichaelBorgwardt Fixed a mistake in my numbers, 200 AD Rome moved up to third place. (I had 80,000 instead of 800,000 in one of its estimates). I think the numbers are correct now, but please take a look at the linked spreadsheet to verify.

comment When did scientists first postulate that Earth's atmosphere might have an upper limit?
@Semaphore It's not off topic here, so it shouldn't be moved anywhere. Especially to a brand new site that has a long way to go before becoming a permanent fixture on the network (I sincerely hope it will, but at this point we simply don't know).

comment Nazi attitude towards pro-Nazi Jews
It was the earlier version of the question that was closed @Anixx (check the revision history). In any case, the question is open now.

there's no reason for that; the revision history is publicly accessible, anyone can see what edits you made

comment Did the date of 9/11 have significance, or was it chosen randomly?
Related (on Skeptics): Was the date for the 9/11 attack chosen to be the same as the emergency number in the U.S. (911)?
