Article moves (thank you)
Thank you for your recent article title moves (Rohrer Sattel → Rohr Saddle, Perchauer Sattel → Perchau Saddle, Feistritzsattel → Feistritz Saddle, etc.). These are much appreciated and greatly improve the readability of English WP. Doremo (talk) 04:20, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
DYK for Idstein Castle
|On 31 October 2014, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Idstein Castle, which you recently created or substantially expanded. The fact was ... that Idstein Castle has a witches' tower? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Idstein Castle. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, live views, daily totals), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.|
Aarhus River move
You may also want to look at other edits made yesterday by Good Olfactory, as he reverted most of my attempts to name various rivers in Spain in a manner consistent with Spain. Thanks Hmains (talk) 17:59, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
Re this edit. In Lithuania the status of city/town/village is defined by law. The status is changed by the Seimas. I agree that to a casual reader Kupiškis does not seem much of a city, but it is. Renata (talk) 16:07, 29 November 2014 (UTC)
- List of cities in Lithuania and List of towns in Lithuania. In general, each country defines cities separately. For large, populous countries 100k might be a reasonable threshold, but for smaller countries like Lithuania, it's way to high. Renata (talk) 16:17, 29 November 2014 (UTC)
Hello, Bermicourt. As I mentioned in September, you must, when you create articles by translating them, provide attribution in your edit summary. The talk page is a good addition, but the edit summary note is required. See Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia. Please provide the necessary attribution for Lexicon of the Middle Ages and any other articles you may have translated. If you have questions about how, please let me know. Thanks! --Moonriddengirl (talk) 14:27, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
Aras River to Aras (river)?
What is the benefit of this? One normally writes [*[Aras River]*] instead of [*[Aras (river)|Aras River]*]. Most British Rivers don't take the River but nearly all US rivers do, and most foreign ones for clarity. There may be a good reason for this, but I don't know what it is. Benjamin Trovato (talk) 21:33, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
- It complies with WP:COMMONNAME and the Wiki river naming convention. --Bermicourt (talk) 15:08, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

GA article review for Cross-country skiing?
Hi, Bermicourt. Thank you for creating Cross-country skiing trail! Would you be willing to provide a GA review for Cross-country skiing? You would appear to be eligible and qualified to do so. Sincerely, User:HopsonRoad 23:43, 29 December 2014 (UTC)
Expansion of article and Happy New Year!
Hi Bermicourt, I hope that you approve of the expansion of the article on Cross-country skiing trail that you brought across from DE:WP. Thanks for providing the opportunity to add depth to a Cross-country skiing-related topic! Happy New Year, User:HopsonRoad 02:22, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
- Thanks Hopson, yes I really like the new sections on grooming the trails. Good teamwork! Happy 2015! --Bermicourt (talk) 09:31, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
- Your next project could be to translate the article back into German to improve what's there! ;-) Cheers, User:HopsonRoad 14:43, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
Happy new year to you! I see our Romanian friend is still creating these. It would be different if he created a few of them at least with something to say about them. We're not a map. The German sub stubs at least can be translated and expanded with information. A lot of these Romanian streams I can find nothing or very little actually on them. ♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:58, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
- Frohes neues Jahr, Herr Doktor! Is there a procedural way forward? i.e. do we make a formal proposal at WikiProject Rivers to a) stop producing more stubs for now, b) generate an agreed list of river articles to expand and c) delete the rest and put them into a list? With the proviso that we can always expand again once the core articles are done. Or something like that... --Bermicourt (talk) 14:38, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
German Kreis - county or district?
Hi Bermicourt, district is correct according to EU use, Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS 3), and used by german authorities in official translations of documents. Best regards. ManfredV (talk) 16:46, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
