Wrong information in the article ![edit]

Have a look at Section 3.1, "Territorial changes", and search for the line "Pomerania, on historical and ethnic grounds, was transferred to Poland so that the new state could have access to the sea and became known as the Polish Corridor" in the second paragraph. I am pretty sure its not "Pomerania", instead the correct place name is "Pomerelia" (at least in the context of this discussion, its unambiguous that way.) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pomerelia. It's also hyperlinked to Pomerania, which is incorrect. I cannot correct it since I am not eligible to edit semi-protected articles, I hope someone will! If you have any doubt, cross check it by clicking on "Polish Corridor", there you will find Pomerelia, which is the correct place. Akash (talk) 19:14, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Under Negotiations section, there is an error where Germany and Russia are flipped. Actual Text: "The terms of this treaty awarded GERMANY a large proportion of RUSSIA'S land and resources." Correct Text: "The terms of this treaty awarded RUSSIA a large proportion of GERMANY'S land and resources." <http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/modern-world-history-1918-to-1980/the-treaty-of-versailles/>Sunaverse (talk) 21:07, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done: The context of the two sentences is referencing the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk, which did award Germany huge territorial gains.EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 23:09, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

Incorrect to say in Mandates section that "Togoland and German Kamerun (Cameroon) were transferred to France." Both these colonies were split between France (major portions) and United Kingdom (minor portions).

Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. KGirlTrucker81 huh? what I'm been doing 19:19, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
