The German page (https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/de/wiki/Kriegsverdienstkreuz_%281939%29 ) seems to be quite extensive. Perhaps a translation of that would help? 04:21, 28 February 2011 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk)
Notable recipients of the War Merit Cross
I was thinking the volume/number of listed persons should be trimmed down. I was thinking of leaving those who are well-known, so to speak. A list of six to ten or so. Comments welcome. Kierzek (talk) 18:00, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
- Per article it was awarded some 4.9 million times and there are just a few dozen listed; all with their own respective pages. Why should it be trimmed down? ...GELongstreet (talk) 20:25, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
- I’m not a fan of including sections of “Notable recipients” since this involves OR to some extend, i.e. who determines which recipients are “notable” and which are not? So I would advocate removing the list altogether. The category at the bottom of the page provides an easy access to such a list quite for those interested.
- If the decision is to trim down a list to those who are generally well known or important historical figures, i.e. Werner von Braun, Papen, etc., then I suggest renaming the section to “Select recipients” as more neutral. K.e.coffman (talk) 23:10, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
