You state in this article:

“Asia Minor became the heartland of the empire, and from this time onwards the Byzantines began a recovery that resulted to the recovery of parts of Greece, Macedonia and Thrace by the year 814 C.E. By the early years of the eleventh century, the Bulgarian Khanate had been utterly destroyed and annexed to the empire, the Slavs and the Rus had converted to Orthodoxy.”

You have a link to Macedonia, which points to the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM).

The use of this link to point to FYROM, in this context is entirely incorrect.

The region of Macedonia as discussed within the context of this article infers something entirely different to that by which you have represented it. That is to say, the use of the term “Macedonia” during this historical period has nothing whatsoever to do with the newly establish nation of the FYROM. As such, it is entirely misleading to make use of such a link and infer that any such connection such as this ever existed.

It would be correct to make use of a link which refers to the region of Macedonia during this historical period, and not to the FYROM. Very sloppy.

I would hope the above feedback, is acted upon, as it would be a shame that the “new world encyclopedia” would be seen to be no better than wikipedia as an unreliable research resource.

Thank you for your comment about the incorrect link from Macedonia. Although the article on the region of Macedonia has not yet been written, I have changed the link to point to that article for the future. At any rate, it no longer links to the FYROM article.
