Redlinks[edit]

Nice one for removing redlinks from the Fettes Brot article. Do you intend to create articles on the band members? Deizio 04:31, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

propably not. There are no articles for the band members on german wikipedia and since I don't really know that much about the band I wouldn't know what to write about them. Also I think they didn't do much interesting stuff outside of "Fettes Brot", so it would be better to write a little bit about them in the "Members" subsection of the F.B. article instead. Tho I'll maybe write a bit about ex-member Tobi Tobsen, since he is (or has been) involved in a lot more projects (F.B., Der Tobi & das Bo, 5 Sterne Deluxe, Moonbootica).

Bayern Munich[edit]

Any paticular reason you moved the page? Kingjeff 01:26, 7 March 2006 (UTC)

cause that's the name of the club. "Bayern Munich" is the colloquial english name, "Bayern München" the colloquial german name. The official and proper name of the club is "FC Bayern Munich" in english and "FC Bayern München" in german. That's why the shortcut is "FCB" and not "BM". As this is a encyclopedia I think the lemma for the article about the club should be the proper name of this club, not the colloquial name. People that search for "Bayern Munich" without the "FC" will still find the article through the redirect. (check also: Image:Fc bayern munchen.gif and the club's webpage)

Your userpage[edit]

was created by a vandal. You wanna leave it blank - or do you want me to delete it? - CrazyRussian talk/email 19:29, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

would be nice if you'd delete it (and thanks for reverting).--BSI 19:30, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Try...[edit]

WP:RfD. The reason I feel that someone might plausibly search that term is due to techinical restrictions on the mediawiki software Usa national soccer team would be the same as usa national soccer team, as capital letters are always capitalized on the software (see ebay for an exapmle). As far as redirects go, just about anything that is a plausible search term is acceptable. There is an addage on wikipedia that "redirects are cheap," ie they do not take up much in the way of bandwidth or server space. While your term is a more plausible search term indeed, either is likely to find its way into the Wikipedia search or the google search boxes. I hope this answer helps.

DJ Rush[edit]

Roughly translated from the German for you. You might want to clean it up, if you are well-versed in the scene and genre. Cheers mate. Exo314 16:26, 18 July 2006 (UTC)

oh sh.. totally forgot about that! Thanks so far, I'm gonna check it right now. --BSI 16:32, 18 July 2006 (UTC)
    • Thanks for cleaning it up--I'm new to all the wiki style rules etc. Cheers Exo314 08:42, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Regensburg Cathedral[edit]

Would you check that image caption again? "due cleaning works" looks garbled; did you mean "by cleaning works"? A more typical expression in English would be "by scaffolding". -- Chonak 07:44, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Scaffolding - that was a word I was looking for :)
What I wanted to say was: The right tower spire was covered by scaffolding, so the workers could get up there and clean it. I left out the by scaffolding and so the workers could get up there and clean it became due cleaning works.--BSI 08:10, 21 July 2006 (UTC)

Opel Astra - official generations' names[edit]

I couldn't find anything in the German Opel site on that, but how about this old press release (see bottom of page): [1]? Bravada, talk - 16:43, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

I worked for Opel in Germany, therefore I know they call it Astra F,G,H. I know that they simply call it 'Astra' on their webpage, without the suffix (probably because they don't want to sell old models). The link you found was a GM press release, not directly from Opel, so it's possible that GM doesn't use the same lineage convention as Opel does.

Maybe this could be mentioned in the Astra article too. something like:

Aside from that another informal convention (that is also used by GM) starts with Astra A,

What do you think about that? btw: maybe I gonna write an email to Opel about the issue, but that's not going to be before next week, since I have other things to do first.--BSI 16:58, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

Wow, seems you have some interesting career :D I would also like to thank you for all your work fixing redirects and links to the Astra! As concerns the naming convention, the GM press release IS official, I would say "GM adopts two conventions - Opel (blah blah), but GM also (blah blah)", if you get my drift. I guess what we need are sources - no need to email Opel, unless a colleague can help you find some. We have at least one for the "Astra A/B" convention, we now need one official Opel source stating that Astras are F/G/H. Funny enough, my family has owned quite a few Opels, and AFAIK the Polish instruction manuals and other booklets said "A/B/C"! We had more Omegas and Vectras recently, so perhaps I am wrong...
I was also wondering whether you would you be interested in joining a German Cars Task Force (see top of WikiProject Automobiles talk page)? Bravada, talk - 17:13, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
PS. And how about THAT... [2] (!)

Eurocopter Tiger[edit]

As Tiger Marketing Manager of Eurocopter, I corrected some previous mistakes concerning Tiger exports figures and updated Tiger delivery schedules, Tiger flight hours performed up to now, and even introduced the brand new name of the german Tiger version. I am not quite familiar with Wikipédia processes, but I noticed that someone reverts to the previous version of the article. It would be a pity to drop the necessary corrections/udates concerning Tiger.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Hervé MORAY (talkcontribs)

I reverted your changes because they seem to be wrong. The German designation 'Tiger KHS' is obsolete, since the Bundeswehr now officially designates the Tiger 'Unterstützungshubschrauber Tiger' or 'UHT'. I reverted your changes with the comment 'please cite sources'. Well since you are the 'Tiger Marketing Manager of Eurocopter' it shouldn't be to much work for you to find some good sources that proof your claims. And you should also think about fixing the Eurocopter website, before making changes to the Wiki-article. Have a nice day --BSI 15:36, 13 August 2006 (UTC)
Moved from your user page. -- Gogo Dodo 07:19, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
Concerning the Eurocopter Tiger page, you will find the new KHS designation mentioned in the German air show ILA website (www.ila2006.de/ila2006/besucher/dateien/Fluggeraete.pdf).
The decision is recent (March 2006). Therefore not yet reflected in the official sites of Eurocopter or Deutsches Heer.
By the way, I am the Eurocopter Marketing Manager for Tiger and I can assure you that we do not have sold HAD to Saudi Arabia and we are not currently involved in any process that may lead to a short term sale of Tiger to Saudi Arabia.
This country is a potential prospect for our helicopter as 30 other countries worldwide (Finland, Sweden, Norway, Malaysia ...)
And finally, it is a pity to drop the very last updates concerning delivery schedules and flight hours performed as by June 2006.
Hervé MORAY—Preceding unsigned comment added by Hervé MORAY (talkcontribs)
If you want to talk to someone, please use the respective user's 'talk page' aka 'discussion', not the 'user page'. It'd also be nice if you'd sign your posts on talk pages.
About your questions: you as marketing manager of Eurocopter should be very ashamed for not keeping your website up-to-date. March 2006 ain't really 'recent', it's nearly half a year by now. So, before being bothered to spread the news on wikipedia, you should do your important work first and fix that errors on your corporate website, then explain the Bundeswehr how they call their chopper now and tell them to fix their website too. Have a nice day--BSI 19:02, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

Pirates of the Caribbean 3[edit]

See http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=16293 ;) —Preceding unsigned comment added by *ABCD* (talkcontribs)

that's very nice. But as I said previously please refer to Talk:Pirates of the Caribbean 3. And most importantly: never do something like this (moving a page while the topic is discussed) without discussing it on the articles talk page.
something general about talk pages: new messages should be placed on the bottom of the talk page and if there already is a section about the topic place your message there. Sign your posts on talk pages and you can also answer a discussion where it started (for less confusion). Btw you should read what you deleted from your talk page.--BSI 20:13, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

re:User:Mgdriven[edit]

I changed the template because the category Category:Indefinitely blocked Wikipedia accounts is being deleted and all the places it transcluded (including that userpage) had to be removed. I could be wrong, but I also believe the indef-spam template is being considered for deletion, but I have to double check. — Moe Epsilon 14:45 September 13 '06

I just checked and the indef-spam template and it's not being considered for deletion. Still, the above category had to be emptied. — Moe Epsilon 14:48 September 13 '06

West Germany[edit]

Please do not redirect West Germany national football team without at least starting a discussion. Obviously somebody has gone to the trouble of creating this article. How would you like it if somebody just deleted an article you wrote without any discussion ? Djln--Djln 16:28, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

West Germany national football team is redirected to the proper Germany national football team as this team exist since 1908. Only East Germany was a separate state and team 1940-1990. -- Matthead discuß!     O       15:32, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Picture sizes[edit]

I suggest you get a 1920x1200 resolution or higher if the pictures look too big to you. They may on a 800x600. Jk-BMW 20:15, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

it's not that they look to big to me. It's just that they are too big. take a look around on WP and compare some articles that have infoboxes with pictures. You'll notice that most (or nearly all of them) are using thumbs with ~ 150 - 250 pixels width (and that's not because they are looking to big on my screen). You'll also notice that most infoboxes don't have captions for images (since it should be obvious what the picture is showing anyway).--BSI 20:48, 26 September 2006 (UTC) btw: please add new messages at the bottom of talk pages

Okay, whatever. Just trying to contribute.

Jk-BMW 21:09, 26 September 2006 (UTC)


Hi, I wonder why my image at the E90 page doesn't show up. I had problems with uploaded images showing up today many times, but now it seems to be taking forever, the link is just supposedly broken, even though the image is there.... Any ideas? Thanks.

Jk-BMW 23:04, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Tho I was able to fix it, I honestly don't really know what went wrong. what I did: I edited the old version before you added the picture. when using the preview, I noticed the picture worked, so I pasted the whole infobox over to the last version after you had edited the article... and it worked. But when I tried editing your last version, I couldn't get the picture work either. Maybe it was just a little bug in the wikimedia software?--BSI 23:20, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Hmm, yeah, seems like pictures have been showing up late today. I've uploaded several and then had to go to them and click them all the way to get them to show up. Strange. Now I uploaded the pic with a new name to avoid confusion and it showed up immediately. Go figure... Thanks.

Jk-BMW 23:22, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

think they had problems with their servers today. Went all really slow and with some errors ("the requested URL was not found" etc) today. btw: I'll mark the misnamed picture as a canditate for speedy deletion, since it's not needed anymore.--BSI 23:26, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, I guess there is nothing I can do to delete it except wait for someone to delete it.

User threats[edit]

Hi, do you know how to handle threatening, abusive and insulting users who vandalize pages and empty their own discussion page (which I understand is forbidden)? The user in question is 'Sahands' and you can see from his personal talk page and from mine what has happened (He just threated to break my every bone, hehehe)

Best regards,

Jk-BMW 11:32, 30 September 2006 (UTC)

one thing that comes to my mind is Wikipedia:Administrator intervention against vandalism. Template:TestTemplates might be useful as well (and are needed to list someone on the other page.--BSI 11:40, 30 September 2006 (UTC)

Thank you my bavarian (friend?). I did add him to the vandal board and added an intervention template. Coming to Munich next summer to show my 130i it's birthplace (did the same thing in 2004 with my old 330Ci). Beautiful place, best of Germany! One of my Finnish friends lives and works in Bavaria. He used to work for a company that did subcontracting for BMW on software, so he got to drive lot of the demo cars - talk about a dream job.

Car Famous Owners section - Rolls Royce Phanton (BMW)[edit]

Hi! Please read my comments at the [Wki Cars project - famous owners] debate. I think you are fighting a losing battle on the Rolls-Royce Phantom (BMW), unless the rules around all such car articles are cleared up and agreed on the project page, and then applied unilateraly. I also think a combination of Rolls Royce's youth-orientated marketing and your in my opinion rather hard-nosed revert policy is creating more problems than its resolving. Reefering anon editors to less than topline wiki policy won't work! Perhaps once you resolve the agreed solution at the project across all car articles, then the problem will at least subside.

Change to Common.css[edit]

Per recent discussions, the way in which Persondata is viewed by Wikipedia editors has changed.

Fair use rationale for Image:MitM credits logo.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:MitM credits logo.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Durin 13:01, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

I have added a fair use rationale to the image description page.--BSI 22:29, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Replaceable fair use Image:Fettes_Brot.jpg[edit]

Replaceable fair use

Thanks for uploading Image:Fettes_Brot.jpg. I noticed the description page specifies that the media is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed media could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this media is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the media description page and edit it to add {{di-replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use media by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of description pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that even if you follow steps 1 and 2 above, fair use media which could be replaced by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted 2 days after this notification (7 days if not used in an article), per our Fair Use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. – Quadell (talk) (random) 19:15, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

I found 2 free licence images on flickr and uploaded them on commons. So I don't oppose the deletion of Fettes_Brot.jpg.--BSI (talk) 00:40, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

supercar[edit]

why are you reverting this page???? Please use talk pages. 206.125.176.3 (talk) 19:44, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

yes please use talk pages. The revisions made to Supercar were the result of much discussion on Talk:Supercar and WP:CAR. So I ask you to refer to those talk pages before you make disruptive edits to articles.--BSI (talk) 20:09, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Your absolutely wrong about that. If you bothered to actually read the article you 'll see there is a whole no approach, paragraphs. Please read and revert back nothing has been discussed about how the article was rewritten because it was just done so. Thank You. 206.125.176.3 (talk) 20:17, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

well that's the point: Nothing has been discussed about rewriting it. But you were told how it would be possible to contribute to it (on March 7th) and you simply ignored it, by reintruducing the same unsourced original research stuff that has been discussed about and removed dozens of times. Maybe, what you wrote was looking a bit different, but after all it was the very same as the very old crdp.--BSI (talk) 21:53, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
