Province[edit]

The title Carinthia (province) definitely gives a false impression not worthy of WIKIPEDIA.
A province is defined as an administrative division, which Koroška is not.
In the text Koroška is described as an "informal province" , which is a contradiction in terms.
I should really be interested in learning how an "administrative unit" can function "informally".
Slovenia is not divided into provinces . Certain areas have names, there were for instance the 3 old historic regions Kranjska, Primorska, Prekmurje, to which were added in 1918 the Slovene-speaking territory of the former Austrian duchy of Styria as the Slovene region "Štaierska", and the small purely Slovene-speaking areas of the Duchy of Carinthia.
For statistical EU purposes 12 Slovene areas have been nominated as statistical regions on NUTS 3 level*) to EUROSTAT. The statistical region No. 4 now bears the misleading name "Koroška", because it now comprises a number of municipalities and townships that were part of Austrian Styria, not of Carinthia (Slovenj Gradec, Radlje, Mislinja, Vuzenica, Podvelka, Ribnica na Pohorju).
Since Koroška is not a province and is, of course, not an "informal province" either, I ask for a move back to the previous title of the entry. I should prefer not to list Koroška under the name of "Carinthia" at all, because newly emerging states ought to make their own names popular in the world!
*) NUTS = Nomenclature des unités territoriales statistiques; level 3: areas comprising 150,000 - 800,000 people. Marschner (talk) 08:38, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Habsburg[edit]

Hello Marschner, I guess your error is in good faith but could you please in the future use the correct spelling of Habsburg. Thanks very much. Str1977 (talk) 13:46, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

History of Slovenia[edit]

When adding refs to History of Slovenia, you removed a large part of the content. While this was probably accidental, I nevertheless had to revert your edit. Regards, Jalen (talk) 20:26, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Koroška[edit]

All you need do to convince me is to demonstrate that it now normally goes by the name of Koroška in English. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 16:24, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi, Marschner! I see you have been involved in the previous discussion about renaming the article Carinthia (province). I've opened a new discussion about the renaming of the article to 'Slovenian Carinthia' (see its talk page) and moving the material about the statistical region to a separate article (like it has been done for other Slovenian statistical regions; see {{Statistical regions of Slovenia}}). Koroška is now a disambiguation page. --Eleassar my talk 06:35, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Edit warring[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war according to the reverts you have made on Friedrich Welwitsch. Note that the three-revert rule prohibits making more than three reversions on a single page within a 24 hour period. Additionally, users who perform several reversions in content disputes may be blocked for edit warring even if they do not technically violate the three-revert rule. When in dispute with another editor you should first try to discuss controversial changes to work towards wording and content that gains a consensus among editors. Should that prove unsuccessful, you are encouraged to seek dispute resolution, and in some cases it may be appropriate to request page protection. --Eleassar my talk 07:35, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
