Anonymous comments[edit]

Two HTML comments I found at the top of the article:

  1. Biographies need to moved elsewhere. This is an article on the Herders influence on the publishing company only. All other facts are irrelevant to this article.
  2. Probably should be moved to Herder & Herder.

I think the comment about the biographies being developed separately is very relevant. 1913 Catholic Encyclopedia decided to glom it all into an article called "Herder", but I think that is not appropriate for Wikipedia. Bob Burkhardt (talk) 16:27, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Well, I moved three bios, the first three, over to their own bio pages.
1) I discovered that Wikipedia editor Charles Matthews, a very reputable person, had contructed the original article by merging together several bios! So I quit without merging that last one. We probably need to wait a few days before doing more editing and see what he says when (if?) he notices.
2) I can appreciate the problem. The bios are inextricably related to the company. Very hard to pull apart.
3) All articles, Verlag, and the three bios, need editing badly. Lots of pov type statements, while technically supported by CE 1913, are still a bit much. Student7 (talk) 01:12, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
