This Article needs to be edited! Some information is wrong, for example dates of first opera ball ect. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Firefoxstar (talkcontribs) 09:51, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

I just asked User:Przepla what made him remove the "inuse" sign which I had put up and replace it with a "stub" notice. You're now all invited to contribute, but if you're planning to do so, please tell me as soon as possible because then I would immediately stop working on this subject.

This was the first time I have used the "inuse" template. It wasn't a great success. <KF> 15:36, Jan 28, 2005 (UTC)

I'm affraid you are mistaken about in which cases the "inuse" template is used. Basically it is used in cases when someone is making a major rewrite and in order to not to lose his or her work he or she saves the article every 10-30 minutes. The earlier versions of inuse template gave the time limit of maximum 3 hours. The "inuse" template is by no means used to reserve article from others editors, as I understand your explanation. If you would like to prepare full fledged article without others interupting, and want to do it in long time period I suggest use yours personal Wikispace and prepare it at for instance User:KF/Vienna Opera Ball. Nevertheless, I am not some kind of a Wikipedia internal mechanics god, and if you don't like my explanation, perhaps it would be wise to seek others opinion on Community pages.

Haagsch Debutantenbal[edit]

The Haagsch Debutantenbal, which takes place in the Kurhaus, could hardly be referred to as "Vienna Opera Ball", could it? Any comments before I remove it? <KF> 23:02, 22 December 2005 (UTC)

So far, the only "comment" has been someone adding "Dubai" without any source ("A similar ball takes place in New York City [1], Dubai and The Hague [2]"). <KF> 08:48, 26 December 2005 (UTC)

First Ball ???[edit]

I just like to inform you, that the German version of WP says, that the first Ball took place in 1935. The english version says: 1936 Who is right? Best regards from Germany ... William —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:51, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

Just googeld a little bit. I found some english websites refering to 1936. But they seemed to be copied from WP. Here,, it is clearly said, that the first Ball with the name 'Wiener Opernball' took place in 1935. I will change the the date to wake up the admin ;-) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:59, 3 April 2011 (UTC)
