I think there are technically more Australians of German descent than there are Brazilians, although I can't find immediately find a source on that. Sure, Brazil is the bigger of the two countries but I recall reading that more Germans migrated to Australia with the promise of free land and economic opportunities than Brazil, and that their government really pushed to bring Germans down under. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 19:55, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

NEMETES WAS A "GERMANIC" TRIBE IN ROMAN NOMENCLATURE THAT MOVED TO THE WESTERN SIDE OF THE RHINE, TO HIDE UNDER THE PROTECTION OF THE ROME, WHILE ESCAPING FROM THE REST OF "GERMANIC" TRIBES THAT WANTED TO PUNISH THEM FOR THEIR BETRAYAL..
ROMANS USED THEM TO FIGHT ALL THE OTHER 'GERMAN' TRIBES, HENCEFORTH THE BECOME THE TOOL FOR CHRISTIAN CRUSADE DIRECTED AT THE EAST OF RHINE
POLES AND OTHER SLAVIC NATIONS/ TRIBES UP TO THE VISTULA WERE ALSO A MAJOR PART OF ROMES 'GERMANIA'.
THEY KNEW THE ENEMY, AND PRESERVED THEIR NAME, AND USED IT TO DENOUNCE ALL THOSE THAT FOUGHT FOR THE NEMETY.
THE POLISH NAME FOR GERMANS IS NIEMCY, AND THERE IS NO CONSENSUS ON THE THEORETICAL PROPOSITION QUOTED IN THE ARTICLE THAT IT MAY MEAN: 'NOT US'. NOR IT IS EVEN RELATED TO MORE PLAUSIBLE THEORY THAT IT MAY MEAN 'NIEMY', MEANING 'MUTE' AS IN NOT SPEAKING OUR LANGUAGE.
THEREFORE I WOULD SUGGEST CHANGING THAT PORTION OF THE ARTICLE TO REFLECT ALL THE THEORY AND NOT PROPAGANDA ONLY.
BESIDES, IT IS SAD TO SEE THAT ARTICLES ARE NOW LOCKED WITHOUT PEER REVIEW OR OPEN DISCUSSION.
THIS CREATES A DANGEROUS PROSPECT OF POTENTIALLY BECOMING VERY NARROW AND NARCISSISTIC ENVIRONMENT WITH SOME PEOPLE OR INTEREST GROUPS LITERALLY STAKING THE WIKIPEDIA ESTATE, THUS RESERVING IT FOR PROPAGATING SOME BIASED VIEWPOINTS (CONSCIOUSLY OR SUBCONSCIOUSLY DUE TO LACK OF THE IN DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF THE TOPICS), RISING THE RISK OF DOWNRIGHT MANIPULATION OF THE INFORMATION BY SELECTIVE CHOICE OF THE 'FACTS' AND THEIR PRESENTATION.
OPEN DISCUSSION SHOULD TAKE PLACE IN AND BEHIND ARTICLES, WITH POTENTIAL CIVILIZING BUT IMPARTIAL MODERATION OF THE FORUM BY REPRESENTATIVES OF THE WIKIPEDIA, WITH ANY ITEM UNDER DISCUSSION FLAGGED AS SUCH ON THE ARTICLE INVITING ANYONE READING TO TAKE PART IN THAT DISCUSSION.
WIKIPEDIA INCREASES ITS ENGAGEMENT MODEL AND BECOMES MORE PROFITABLE ALL THE SAME. WHILE READERS HAVE THEIR CHANCE TO VOICE OPINION, VIEW AND KNOWLEDGE AND CONTRIBUTE OR LEARN.
- Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. EvergreenFir (talk) 22:00, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
What I feel is missing and I haven't been able to find information on Wikipedia is information on the subgroups of Germans, regional identities, anything that would differentiate them from each other. Would be both helpful and interesting if this information could be found and listed here. Rikskansler (talk) 17:58, 21 September 2019 (UTC)
