Requested move[edit]

Most links to this article are via the redirect Weser. For German rivers it's usual not to have River behind it, unless there's a disambiguation issue. Markussep 12:48, 25 Mar 2005 (UTC)

  • Oppose. Having failed to generate support for this procedure at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Rivers, it is inappropriate to try to argue this on every river's page. Rmhermen 04:22, Mar 28, 2005 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Add any additional comments

See Wikipedia: WikiProject Rivers and Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Rivers for a general discussion on whether the word "River" should be included in the page name. Philip Baird Shearer 18:15, 27 Mar 2005 (UTC)

It was requested that this article be renamed but there was no consensus for it to be moved. violet/riga (t) 22:02, 30 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Clarification needed[edit]

The article currently says:

Between Minden and the North Sea, it has largely been canalised, permitting ships of up to 1,200 tons to navigate it. Eight hydroelectric dams are located along its length. Further downstream, it is linked to the Dortmund-Ems Canal via the Küstenkanal, and another canal links it at Bremerhaven to the Elbe River.

It is not entirely clear what the further downstream is further downstream of. From the text, it could be either the stretch of the river between Minden and the North Sea, or it could be its length (ie. the whole river). Both these readings fail the common sense test. So what was meant?. -- Starbois (talk) 10:19, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

On reflection, I've simply removed the offending Further downstream. -- Starbois (talk) 10:24, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
