Some input to the POV argument; yes, I have had an account on the German Wikipedia. I wrote one completely new article de:Belgorod-Charkiwer Operation and edited de:Unternehmen Zitadelle and some others .
I was made welcome, and treated with respect; I thought that no one had a problem with my edits, that they appreciated them. Please look there if you can read a bit of German. I simply wrote the same there as here, only in better German (because my English is not great). I had no problems. But why ? On the German Wikipedia, I have had no problems with my edits.
This indicates to me that all the people have POV and problems/discussion evolve when two POVs collide. I learned that that should not be a problem; we have to find a consensus. The English Wikipedia is very anti-German POV, in my opinion. Exceptions to this include aerial warfare and biographies.
Regarding the IP edits, which have become the main focus of this discussion, because Nick-D has avoided discussing his behaviour: In this edit I freely admitted to EyeSerene (talk · contribs) that they were my edits. I contacted him immediately, saying that some (not all) of the edits by that IP were me.
With regard to the behaviour of that IP user: Some of those edits were made by me, others were made by my friends. It was not correct that I treated it like in a forum, and saw it a "battleground of opposing opinions". I was angry and annoyed; many of my 'vandal' edits were pointy, due to the POV issues. Any further accusations against my previous behaviour will not be contested by me. I accept any accusation against me (regardless what they claim) before my unjustified blocks, as true. I hope this will help us to focus on the recent issue.
I read English Wikipedia articles about Normandy, and noticed the POV (in my opinion). I thought this was not the way that Wikipedia should work, so I created an account and began editing articles. I did not disguise my past. I became involved with another editor, who was presenting the opposing POV. I explained that I never had problems on the German Wikipedia
Perhaps you did not notice the comments of Paul Siebert. I sincerely hope that Paul does not need to become embroiled in this dispute. 21:53, 18 April 2010 (UTC).
