WikiProject Notre Dame Invite
First of all, I wanted to thank you for your contributions to Notre Dame School of Architecture. Also, I wanted to ask if you had any connections to it (like being an alumnus) or if you're just interested in Classical Architecture. The Notre Dame School of Architecture is definitely an outstanding institution, and I've been wanting to work on that page for a while. I have a lot of sources, but I don't have time. If you're interested to participate, I can send you the material I have. Also, check out our project! Cheers! Eccekevin (talk) 18:30, 10 November 2015 (UTC)
Dresden and Leipzig
Hi, the general policy on foreign names is explained at WP:PLACE ("Relevant foreign language names (one used by at least 10% of sources in the English language or is used by a group of people which used to inhabit this geographical place) are permitted"). Regarding placenames in Poland the principles are determined in the "Gdansk vote":
Especially important: "For Gdansk and other locations that share a history between Germany and Poland, the first reference of one name in an article should also include a reference to other names, e.g. Danzig (now Gdańsk, Poland) or Gdańsk (Danzig)." `Electorate of Saxony was a client state of Poland so this refers to Dresden and Leipzig.2A02:2430:3:2500:0:0:B807:3DA0 (talk) 21:52, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
- I'm well aware of the policies you quoted. But this doesn't apply to Dresden or Leipzig. Both also weren't significantly inhabited by Poles at any given point in their history as cities. Please refrain from reinstating this, there's no consensus on doing so. It's perfectly sufficient to have that in the history or name sections respectively. Cheers, Horst-schlaemma (talk) 22:49, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
This is not a random rule and this is not an excuse for excluding the Polish names. Reread the vote notice carefully, "The following rules apply in the case of disputes:" - there is no exemption from this rule. They do not need to have been inhabited by Poles, they do need to share a history with Poland as a state, which both Dresden and Leipzig as a former part of Electorate of Saxony do. Please do not edit war, this vote was made to prevent edit warring in case of disputes. Cheers.2A02:2430:3:2500:0:0:B807:3DA0 (talk) 02:51, 2 December 2015 (UTC)
- Please, be that kind to let the vote apply as it is intended to.2A02:2430:3:2500:0:0:B807:3DA0 (talk) 06:50, 4 December 2015 (UTC)
Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited The Giving Pledge, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Bill Scott (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.
