NPOV Warning

Now, I know that the last time I added an NPOV warning people got irrationally mad at me, so here's my explanation for this one.

(A) Reliance on the unreliable testimony of jshatney, who was the emperor of Frankonia (later Brittania) on CivEx: First Light. Imperator, when pressed, confirms this was his source for the claim that "the Arlingtons [sic]" destroyed his house[1]. There's an obvious reason for jshatney's unreliability in this situation, namely, that a couple days later he sacked Arlington for seemingly no reason[2]. I didn't remove the claim, simply added 'allegedly'. This should be sourced with a better source than jshatney's testimony or removed entirely (or rewritten to make it clear it was a jshatney lie)

(B) Minimization of the centrality of Indoja to Adina pre imperator's-hostile-takeover. More should be added clarifying that until the Republican revolution, very few practitioners of Orthodoxy lived in Adina besides ImperatorMendes himself.

In regard to point (A) I would like to point out that the statement attached was non-specific to any individual, mentioning "Franconia" only. Nonetheless this section has now been revised in line with the request that it be from a source not implicated in the sacking of the Republic of Arlington.

In regard to point (B) whilst the page is about Orthodoxy, it is true that it must accurately reflect the religion's state within society. In this I fail how the article exaggerates the size of or significance of Orthodoxy (relative to other religions present). For example the article references the census twice: the first stating that the Orthodox faith made up 15% of the country and the second attesting to "slight gains" in proportion. Another description of the state of the faith in Adina was as a "small, growing minority". The words small, minority, coupled with the reference to censuses broadly reiterating this emphasises with some clarity that the proportion of Orthodox within the population was low during this time. Therefore in this regard, I do not believe the article to require further clarification.

The NPOV warning has been removed, and 'allegedly' has been re-added. Although the claim that the arlingtonians sacked franconia (including your house) is still ridiculous because this recording occurred days ''after'' the Arlingtonians fled far, far north into the Glass Wastes to avoid jshatney and Franconia[3], and also because we literally didn't know how to make tier two reinforcements yet. - MrJoCrafter (talk) 19:33, 13 January 2022 (UTC)

Please keep talk page on topic, if you're referring to anything regarding Arlington or Franconia please use those respective pages to discuss, not in this page, even if it has links to Arlington. Specificlanguage (talk) 19:46, 13 January 2022 (UTC)Reply
It is on topic. we're discussing the validity of a claim made in this page that directly relates to its subject matter. MrJoCrafter (talk) 19:50, 13 January 2022 (UTC)Reply
