Hastings[edit]

Hastings does appear to use the Krivosheev figures. His claim of 352475 total casualties is straight from Krivosheev's work, but with the Polish casualties not included:

Soviet losses in the “Berlin offensive operation” 16 Apr. – 8 May according to Krivosheev: 78.291 KIA/MIA, 274.184 WIA, total 352.475. Add Polish losses: 2.825 KIA and 6.067 WIA.

However, while the Krivosheev data says 78,291 KIA/MIA, Hastings somehow comes up with a figure of >100,000. I'm not sure how he did this math, and until someone can account for it, his figures should be left out.96.238.16.143 (talk) 14:33, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Hey, the edit conflict seems to have been resolved for now with some footnote and journal digging on my part. Take a look at the discussion. We seem to have established a high and low range for estimated deaths. Hastings and other tertiary sources have been moved to the footnotes, and Muller is now listed as a "german" estimate due to the book series that he wrote for being commissioned by the Military History Research Office of the Bundeswehr. -Megakedar (talk) 02:10, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
Thank you very much for the work you have done. Very interesting discussion, it took me my whole breakfast reading it! Best regards /Erik EriFr (talk) 09:02, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Average attendance[edit]

Sorry EriFr, I will do that. I didn't realise you had made so many other edits, my mistake. I did read the article and I think it makes clear that it is all matches not just league. there were also the Spanish Super Cup and Joan Gamper games at the Camp Nou. Thanks Adam4267 (talk) 12:01, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Thanks a lot mate!
Doesn't the article say that the average for the whole season (all games included) was 75,825? So, which games does the 75,158 represent? La Liga, Spanish Supercup and Joan Gamper?
Best regards /Erik

Disambiguation link notification for July 26[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited RB Leipzig, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Red Bull Salzburg. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

RB Leipzig[edit]

Hi, sorry to bother you but I need some advice for the RB leipzig article. As you maybe already noticed, this user Nikebrand had an edit war with me, in which as a result I also was blocked from editing, because of contents in it. It seems like it gonna be going over like that again, where he wont let me edit his edits, even though I think I am just correcting it without changing any meaning and removing unsourced and unrelated contents.

Could I have your opinion how I should handle this situation? Thanks. MbahGondrong (talk) 21:57, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for contacting me! I am very concerned about this user Nikebrand. Sometimes he adds valuable information, but unfortunately his edits are very often (1) far from objective, (2) lacking sources and (3) not written in proper English (normally the language is not a problem, as other users can help him with this). It appears to me that Nikebrand is a German citizen, I therefore find it interesting that he does not make any edits to the German article on RB Leipzig. Why is he so obsessed with the English article? I do not know what advice I should give you, as I am not familiar enough with the rules and sanctions of Wikipedia, but I think you are doing a good job. You got my full support. I will continue to keep an eye on Nikebrand, and I will not hesitate to undo or edit his edits when it is necessary for the reasons I mentioned above. Best regards /Erik EriFr (talk) 12:51, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
I see you live in Dortmund. I just want to make sure that I am not misunderstood. When I wrote that it is interesting that Nikebrand does not make edits on the German article on RB Leipzig, I did not mean that German citizens should not edit English articles. That would have been counterproductive and hypocrite, as I am not English myself (I am Swedish). I meant that I think his behavior is suspicious. I see that the German article is much more developed, and has many more editors. Perhaps he has given up on the German article to focus on the English article, were he believes he can impose his own views and perspectives without meeting resistance from other editors? EriFr (talk) 18:51, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
As this is Wikipedia, we need to recognize his right to contribute (I know that you already knows this), and I think some of the information that he adds is valuable. But I think we need to keep an eye on him, and I will help you with this. This is the only thing that I can suggest at this moment, as I do not know what appropriate sanctions that Wikipedia has for him, or how they should be invoked.
EriFr (talk) 18:51, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
Hi, thanks for your replies. It seems like he only revert my edits and not other editors, that I dont understand. Anyway hopefully we can make the article much more better with every contributions and correct any incorrect edits. Cheers!! MbahGondrong (talk) 20:08, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
Apparently Nikebrand have been blocked from editing now. MbahGondrong (talk) 22:50, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
