early comments[edit]

One single sentence about the pre-European history of Guam? Not even any mention of oral history or culture? -- User:

Please add if you have the available information to share. Thank you. -- PFHLai 21:26, 2005 Mar 6 (UTC)
My brief survey's incomplete, but please feel free to edit or add to it. Olihist

Read "Post-WWII Guam" section and decided to expand it a little and add some analysis of Guam today and Guam History in general. Also created "Further Reading" section and added two important (and thorough) histories of Guam. Anyone who has pictures to add to Guam History article, please do so (especially for post-WWII period). Olihist

Some information about decolonization and the commonwealth effort should be included. Onionhound 06:39, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

I dont have economic and demographic statistics off-the-cuff for post-War Guam but possible places to cite, if needed, in the article include the 2000 U.S. Census and Guam Economic Reports (if available online). Olihist

Added a section on self-determination; wiki-link as needed. Olihist

The conclusion about the legacy of Guam's development seems odd for an encyclopedia article. 06:46, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

Japanese invasion[edit]

The Japanese invasion took place on Dec 10. It is false to state that there had been some sort of prior evacuation of civilians or of American troops. The liberation of course is very important and can well be expanded, but not by distorting the invasion story.Rjensen (talk) 14:03, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

The ground invasion began on December 10, but the bombing (the initial attack) began on December 8, which is the same day as December 7 in Hawaii. Not only was Guam attacked on December 8, it was the same date for Hong Kong, Manila, and Malaya. HkCaGu (talk) 15:35, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

World War II[edit]

I believe that the World War II section can be greatly expanded(possibly into its own article) to include more detailed information on the initial Japanese invasion, the Japanese occupation, atrocities committed against the Guamanians, return of US military, and effects of the occupation on post-war Guam. Before his passing in 2007, I had a chance to talk with Senator Unpingco about the atrocities committed against the civilian population by the Japanese soldiers, and I believe that they are worthy of an article. Beyond that, I feel the information I collected is incomplete, so I'd appreciate it if someone could help me. Paulino-- (talk) 09:44, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:
