Japanese Occupation 1942-1945[edit]

Japan started bombing parts of the Philippines in December 1941, but did not land troops of "occupy" any part of the Philippines until 1942. They surrendered the Philippines to the Allies in 1945. Gubernatoria (talk) 03:18, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Although they surrendered in 1945, but the occupation already ended in 1944 with the restoration of the Commonwealth of the Philippines. (talk) 17:33, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

"Tributary State" =/= "Sinified State" (?) -- A Discussion[edit]

A relevant discussion is currently ongoing at Talk:Ma-i#.22Tributary_State.22_.3D.2F.3D_.22Sinified_State.22_.28.3F.29_--_A_Discussion. I initially put it here, but I concluded it was wisest to move it, since the discussion makes more sense there. - Alternativity (talk) 07:02, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Consulting the community re: the "Legendary" polities section and instances of WP:OR on the template[edit]

Hi all. Just informing the community that I've changed the organization of the "Archaic Epoch" section of Template:History of the Philippines to reflect geographical location (established or theorized), instead of politico-religeous (disputed in many of the cases). I'm also seeking community input about the section on "Legendary" polities. Many of those are based on Fringe theories, and I have to wonder if the subsection should actually exist at all. Also, I feel some content in the rest of "Archaic Epoch" needs to be tagged for WP:OR or WP:Fringe concerns. But I'm unsure how welcome such tagging will be on the template itself. So I'm bringing the matter up here for discussion. What are your thoughts on keeping/removing the "Legendary polities" section, and how exactly do we deal with glaring WP:OR on the template? Thanks and cheers! - Alternativity (talk) 09:09, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
