nationality[edit]

I haven't found any-thing specifically stating his nationality. Other than that his father is/was Austrian and that the author lived in Vienna as a child, do we have any basis for calling him Austrian? Kdammers 02:18, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

I think the best thing to do is remove the mention of precise nationality and replace it with "German-language" - as the German article does ("deutschsprachiger"). This is a far more objective, and unbiased, way of doing things (nationality is really a very subjective thing, although some very strongly disagree). The relevent information regarding his place of birth, his father's nationality, and his place of residence are all contained within the article: readers are thus free to make their own minds up based on their personal understanding of nationality. Does anyone else have any suggestions? Rje 03:26, 2 January 2007 (UTC)
Sounds okeh to me, though if we get firm documentation that he is in fact legally Austrian or German I would be infavor of re-instating his nationality. Kdammers 03:41, 2 January 2007 (UTC)
That's my feeling too, short of that it's all speculative. Rje 15:30, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Vermessung der welt covers.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Vermessung der welt covers.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.
