James Weldon Johnson[edit]

I replaced Category:American poets with Category:20th-century American poets - no need for him to be in both. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 05:42, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Right. I guess that makes sense ... somewhat. However the article states "Johnson's first success as a writer was the poem "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing" (1899)" - and 1899 isn't the 20th century, is it? Albrecht Conz (talk) 06:33, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
In which case Category:19th-century American poets as well. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 07:26, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks - great! Albrecht Conz (talk) 03:51, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Article talk page etiquette[edit]

Please be aware that it's considered bad form to tag a new comment onto an old discussion ended 5 years ago. If you want to begin a new discussion about nationality, please open a new discussion at the end of the talk page. But please read all the previous discussions first. Austro-Hungary consisted of two semi-independent kingdoms. Lorre was (1) born within the boundaries of the Kingdom of Hungary, (2) was given a Hungarian name at birth, (3) spoke only Hungarian until after his first film, (4) had a passport issued by the Hungarian Embassy in London, and (5) identified himself as "Hungarian" in nearly every interview he ever gave. It sounds to me like you are completely ignorant of the subject and have done no in depth reading of sources. When you've done that, you'll probably realize how stupid your edits seem to others.

Thanks for calling me stupid - and again not giving any proof at all, except claims (I did give a reference). Quite remarkable from somebody who then points me to etiquette... Albrecht Conz (talk) 16:27, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
I didn't call you stupid. I called your edit stupid. There's a difference. You clearly have never even read a biography of the subject. Skyerise (talk) 16:33, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
Well, you did say that I'm completely ignorant on the subject, didn't you? And you are being very rude for no particular reason at all claiming something you cannot know, namely that I "never even read a biography" of Lorre - nevermind that you refuse to respond to valid questions - or supply any references for your claims. - I have read more than one biography of Lorre's, and, after all, I did add a reference from a biography (yes, I not only quoted it, I added it some time ago) - something you seem to be unwilling to do, which I find rather puzzling, as you present yourself as a Lorre expert. Also, going by your above comments, I am sorry to say I'm not terribly convinced about your expertise, as you claim that he "spoke only Hungarian until after his first film". What does this mean? The English is rather garbled here. Do you mean to say that after his first film (which one?), he spoke only Hungarian - and where? In films? In private? - Lorre acted in about ten German-language films before 1933 - and in the only film he directed (and acted in), "Der Verlorene", in 1951. In addition, your claim that it is "bad form to tag a new comment onto an old discussion ended 5 years ago" is untrue. If this is the section were a certain point was discussed this is were you add it. Albrecht Conz
