Talk:Vienna Opera Ball
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.

- So far, the only "comment" has been someone adding "Dubai" without any source ("A similar ball takes place in New York City , Dubai and The Hague "). <KF> 08:48, 26 December 2005 (UTC)
First Ball ???
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 22.214.171.124 (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, http://www.wientanz.com/Baelle/Opernball/OperTime.htm, 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 126.96.36.199 (talk) 17:59, 3 April 2011 (UTC)
