James Weldon Johnson[edit]

I replaced Category:American poets with Category:20th-century American poets - no need for him to be in both. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 05:42, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Right. I guess that makes sense ... somewhat. However the article states "Johnson's first success as a writer was the poem "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing" (1899)" - and 1899 isn't the 20th century, is it? Albrecht Conz (talk) 06:33, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
In which case Category:19th-century American poets as well. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 07:26, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks - great! Albrecht Conz (talk) 03:51, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Article talk page etiquette[edit]

Please be aware that it's considered bad form to tag a new comment onto an old discussion ended 5 years ago. If you want to begin a new discussion about nationality, please open a new discussion at the end of the talk page. But please read all the previous discussions first. Austro-Hungary consisted of two semi-independent kingdoms. Lorre was (1) born within the boundaries of the Kingdom of Hungary, (2) was given a Hungarian name at birth, (3) spoke only Hungarian until after his first film, (4) had a passport issued by the Hungarian Embassy in London, and (5) identified himself as "Hungarian" in nearly every interview he ever gave. It sounds to me like you are completely ignorant of the subject and have done no in depth reading of sources. When you've done that, you'll probably realize how stupid your edits seem to others. Cheers! Skyerise (talk) 15:31, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for calling me stupid - and again not giving any proof at all, except claims (I did give a reference). Quite remarkable from somebody who then points me to etiquette... Albrecht Conz (talk) 16:27, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
I didn't call you stupid. I called your edit stupid. There's a difference. You clearly have never even read a biography of the subject. Skyerise (talk) 16:33, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
Well, you did say that I'm completely ignorant on the subject, didn't you? And you are being very rude for no particular reason at all claiming something you cannot know, namely that I "never even read a biography" of Lorre - nevermind that you refuse to respond to valid questions - or supply any references for your claims. - I have read more than one biography of Lorre's, and, after all, I did add a reference from a biography (yes, I not only quoted it, I added it some time ago) - something you seem to be unwilling to do, which I find rather puzzling, as you present yourself as a Lorre expert. Also, going by your above comments, I am sorry to say I'm not terribly convinced about your expertise, as you claim that he "spoke only Hungarian until after his first film". What does this mean? The English is rather garbled here. Do you mean to say that after his first film (which one?), he spoke only Hungarian - and where? In films? In private? - Lorre acted in about ten German-language films before 1933 - and in the only film he directed (and acted in), "Der Verlorene", in 1951. In addition, your claim that it is "bad form to tag a new comment onto an old discussion ended 5 years ago" is untrue. If this is the section were a certain point was discussed this is were you add it. Albrecht Conz

German writers[edit]

I'll take a look, thanks. Most likely, they were categorized as German-something at some point, and that's how they got mixed in there. I'll remove them shortly. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:15, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Taken care of - please let me know if you find any others that need fixing. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:20, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
Got that. I'll be heading out for a while shortly, but I'll be back later. Please let me know of any others you find in the meantime and I'll take care of 'em before bed. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 01:32, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Please don't do cut and paste moves[edit]

Information icon Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you tried to give Ernst Weiss a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into Ernst Weiß. This is known as a "cut-and-paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is legally required for attribution. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.

In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page (the tab may be hidden in a dropdown menu for you). This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Requests for history merge. Thank you. — Diannaa (talk) 14:42, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for your message! - I tried moving the article first via the "move" tab. That doesn't work. Then I looked aroud a bit and posted a "request move" request plus put the code I found for this on the discussion page - both to no effect at all. After this, the only possibility I could find was the cut + paste (although I do not like this). I've been active here for 10+ years ... and I'm afraid the rules for moving are rather arcane and impracticable (at least, if a straight forward move is not possible (in this case because the target page exists as a redirect page to the page in question - meaning the pages need to be swapped). Anyway, the move should be obvious - just see the German page for the person in question: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernst_Wei%C3%9F_%28Schriftsteller%29 The fact, that his name is spelled "ERNST WEISS" on the photo does not contradict this, as the German letter "ß" has a lower case form only and, in caps, is replaced by "SS". Hopefully, you can advise me on how to effect this move. All the best Albrecht Conz (talk) 03:42, 1 June 2016 (UTC)
