Thank you, "se Horst", for quality articles such as Pier Carlo Bontempi and images of Ostseebäder, for redirects of synomyms, for your efforts to name West Germany more precisely and to correct many castles to Schloss or palace, for "carpe spatium!" - you are an awesome Wikipedian!

WikiProject Notre Dame Invite[edit]

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[edit]

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)

Katowice image[edit]

Hello, just wanted to follow up on the image of Katowice in the Poland article, but before that, I would like to thank you for the updates to the article—nice improvements to the pictures and text. In regards to Katowice, there are two points I'd like to highlight: The first is that the section (which is rather small) does not quite have room for more pictures without creating clutter; and the second point is that this section is more about Demographics not Urbanization, so perhaps in this case we can omit this reference. --E-960 (talk) 17:33, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

Well you're right, still I think it makes sense to illustrate the very fact and in addition extend the demographics and urbanization sections. While I agree there's an abundance of pictures, which leads me to the conclusion we should have a look and that and trim a little, which benefits download times and overview quality. I'm sure there's potential, some sections really look cluttered with unnecessary pics. Cheers, Horst-schlaemma (talk) 18:21, 30 September 2016 (UTC)

Germany, languages[edit]

Hi, it would be nice if you could tell me why the version as it is now is better than my version. Thank you. ArchitectMan (talk) 17:20, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

Bogislaw was Polish, I believe[edit]

I'd appreciate if you'd give me your sources for this allegation of yours, and also explain what an "HRR citizen" is suppposed to be (there was no legal citizenship of any kind at that time). Nobody in Darlowo speaks German. I've been there. The area was under German control for a period, that's all. The people are Polish and have always been. Eric's dynasty was a branch of the Polish Royal Family Piast from about 800. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 16:32, 26 April 2017 (UTC)

"The people are Polish and have always been" - if that is what you're thinking, we should seriously examine some more historical literature, my dear. Anyway, it's not a matter I will get into conflicts with. It's just that this was missing a "pirates" category, we can add "Polish" and "German" to that. Even though that wasn't really the categories back then, there was neither nation. Cheers Horst-schlaemma (talk) 11:41, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
Please don't "my dear" me. I respect you, you respect me. That's how it works. --SergeWoodzing (talk) 12:22, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
When s.o. allegedly ignores facts, I tend to get snippy. Respect indeed, you're right! -- Horst-schlaemma (talk) 15:46, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
