Category:Wehrmacht Luftwaffe[edit]

Would you please indicate why you emptied this new category, seemingly out of process? The Luftwaffe category is large and thoroughly confused between the force over different time periods. There is also good precedent for subdividing other German military formation categories by period (eg Category:Units and formations of the Bundeswehr Luftwaffe). We are also WP:NOTCENSORED; there's no reason for continuing the jumbling up. Would you kindly explain? Buckshot06 (talk) 11:04, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

The English name of the German air force is 'German Air Force' - and this is the English-language Wikipedia, isn't it? 'Luftwaffe' however is most commonly used for the air force of Nazi Germany - so that category is used for the 1935-45 establishment. Like for 'Kriegsmarine' and 'Waffen-SS' there are unfortunately no useful English translations around that would not mix up two completely different organizations. The Luftwaffe category, though indeed large, is far from jumbled, so whatever is confusing you has nothing to do with the recently deleted category you mentioned above. ÄDA - DÄP VA (talk) 14:23, 20 January 2016 (UTC)
Luftwaffe and German Air Force indeed mean the same thing for the entire era since 1933. But I am not too interested in whatever we finally come down on, though to translate 'Luftwaffe' now, and not do so for 1933-45, is bizarre. I would note that we've standardised on 'Panzer'/Panzergrenadier rather than 'Armoured' for divisions for the entire period from 1933 onwards.
What I'm interested in however is separating things that deal with the 1955 onwards force from the force that disappeared in 1945-6. These are two completely separate services and deserve two separate categories. Thus I will reestablish the recently deleted category. It's clear from your listing of the category I just mentioned above that (a) I need to be crystal clear that 1955-today wings should not be in a category with 1933-45 wings, and (b) that you know how to use the categories for discussion process. I trust therefore that there will no further out-of-process deletions, and should you like to standardise the entire category and article structure on one language, you will use the proper CfD process.

Bizarre is the right word; diffusing a foreign language term by using more foreign language. In the meantime 'German Air Force' has for the past 60 years been the English-language name of the air force of (West) Germany. BTW, I used the CfR-template.

Disambiguation link notification for January 24[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Axel Schimpf, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Andreas Krause (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Himmerod or Himmeroder[edit]

Hi, I noticed your edit to "Himmerod Memorandum". I've not come across sources that refer to the Memorandum this way. My sources for "Himmeroder Memorandum" are:

Here's a 3rd: Screening War: Perspectives on German Suffering

Could you clarify where you see "Himmerod Memorandum"? K.e.coffman (talk) 04:24, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

E.g.: David Clay Large (9 November 2000). Germans to the Front: West German Rearmament in the Adenauer Era. Univ of North Carolina Press. p. 97. ISBN 978-0-8078-6274-2. 
But if you are writing an article on the topic you are free to choose a title. There can always be redirects for alternate names. ÄDA - DÄP VA (talk) 04:30, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. Looks like both are acceptable -- I will think about it. K.e.coffman (talk) 04:40, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
