Erich Heller

Hi there, you're doing a fine job cleaning up the Erich Heller article, you think it could use some subheadings to break it up? I'd also suggest including an edit summary for your changes. This will make it easier for us to identify changes from one version to another without having to browse them manually. Regards --Hooperbloob 07:34, 7 April 2006 (UTC)

I am not finished with composing this article; I will get to the subject headings, etc., as you suggest, once the body text is complete. I need to re-read some of his books for a proper assessment of his thought. -- Prof02

Erich Heller

I also have to say that this is becoming an excellent article. However, it would be good if you could add references. Check WP:CITE for ways to do this. I personally prefer the meta:Cite/Cite.php system, which is easy to use and adds references directly in tags in the main text. Just look in the code for this footnote.[1] Any chance you can find a photograph of Heller that can be used under a free license? Other illustrations? Tupsharru 08:47, 12 April 2006 (UTC)


  1. ^ The cite.php system makes it easy to add references in the relevant place in the text, but it will automatically display them in footnotes in a "Notes" section at the end, just like this.

Thank you very much indeed for teaching me the footnotes technique. As you see, I have already applied this knowledge in practice. Proliferation of references can however be tedious, not to say crude, detracting from an article's appeal rather than enhancing it; and I think the reader should be encouraged by an article that is truly interesting to do his own little bit of sleuthing at the subject rather than have everything served to him on a platter. -- Prof02 09:10, 22 April 2006 (UTC)

Hans Egon Holthusen

Would someone please change the major heading of this page from 'Holthusen' to 'Hans Egon Holthusen' for me. I don't know how to do this. ---- Prof02 08:05, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Done! For future reference, you use the "move" button (to the right of the "history" button) to change page names. More at WP:MOVE.--Commander Keane 08:09, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Many thanks. ---- Prof02 08:14, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Oskar Seidlin

Would someone kindly provide a redirect from 'Seidlin' to 'Oskar Seidlin': I don't know how to do that. Currently if you search for 'Seidlin' nothing happens. -- Prof02 12:41, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Done. Info at Wikipedia:Redirect :-) --Commander Keane 12:43, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Many thanks again.

Can you help redirect 'Stefan Brockhoff' to this page (Oskar Seidlin)? (The reasons for this will be apparent from the article's text.) I'm sorry, but the procedure is too complex for me. -- Prof02 14:03, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Done. Writing articles is the complex bit (I am always happy to do fiddly things like redirects etc). I commend you for all your hard work.--Commander Keane 14:09, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for your kindness and for your humbling honesty. -- Prof02 14:13, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

I must ask you to UNDO the redirect from 'Stefan Brockhoff' to 'Oskar Seidlin'. Since I have now created a separate page for 'Richard Plant', who participates in the pseudonymous identity of 'Stefan Brockhoff', we need a separate page for 'Stefan Brockhoff' with referents ('See also... etc.') directing the reader BOTH to 'Oskar Seidlin' AND 'Richard Plant'. This however seems impossible to do with the redirect unilaterally in force from 'Stefan Brockhoff' to 'Oskar Seidlin' -- Prof02 08:04, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

Hi Prof02, I've made the change as you've requested. Please feel free to modify the text of the Disambiguation page as you see fit. (Hint: You can edit a redirect by clicking on the link after "Redirected from ...") Cheers, Tangotango 08:16, 27 April 2006 (UTC)
