List of unlawfully killed transgender people[edit]

Hello Paul2520, thanks for looking over my Changes, I'm still new to this. The Problem is, there is not really Citation for this. I just compared the Sources of the Cases 'Kira' and 'Nina Surgutskaya' and they look very similar, as both Reports are from the same Day, both Cases happened in Kursk, the described Murder is exactly identical and the Culprit is named Mikhail for both too (only the second one gives his Surname though). So I thought it would be redundant to have both as separate Cases. I didn't want to go as far as completely removing one of them, so I just included a Remark about this, to point out the high Probability that it is one and the same Case. But maybe you have a better Idea how to do that? --Glimmer-Vigdís (talk) 10:16, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi, Glimmer-Vigdís! Thanks for following-up. It's great to have you on Wikipedia & I really appreciate you using critical thinking when editing.
Unfortunately, what you are describing is original research, which is not the point of Wikipedia. We really need reliable sources to keep this encyclopedia a trustworthy reference.
My suggestions are: (1) include both names, referencing both sources you mentioned. It's possible, unfortunately, that someone named Mikhail killed two trans people that day. Or possibly two different perpetrators named Mikhail. (2) hold-off until a source appears linking the cases.
My suggestion is to follow option (1), but keep your eyes open for another source (you could set-up something like a Google alert, if you'd like).
Let me know if you have further questions. = paul2520 (talk) 13:32, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

Jürgen Möller[edit]

Hello Paul, can you please help me to translate Jürgen Möller from the German Wikipedia into the English Wikipedia? Möller is a military historian and wrote many books about the end of the war in Germany, especially about the liberation by the American army. Möller has also researched Raymond J. Bowmann. I would be glad if you could bring the German article about Jürgen Möller on the English side. I wrote the article in German and met Jürgen Möller personally with Lehman Riggs in Leipzig at the Capa-Haus. I am looking forward to your answer. --Caisare (talk) 20:53, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi, Caisare, and thanks for reaching out! I'd be happy to do so. I don't speak or read German, but I've translated articles in the past. I'll start with Google Translate & see how well I can do with what it outputs. Then perhaps you can help tweak?
I'm not sure exactly when I will get to it, but should be sometime this week. = paul2520 (talk) 22:18, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
Caisare, I went ahead and translated the article. See Jürgen Möller. I welcome your improvements.
I had trouble with part of the Sonstiges section from the German article, but I can look at [1] and add it to the section later. Translating is tiring work! = paul2520 (talk) 23:30, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
Hi Paul, I would like to thank you for translating so quickly. fantastic. I can now also write additions using the Google translator and you correct. once again many thanks. Jürgen Möller will also be very happy. --Caisare (talk) 03:59, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for asking me to do it, Caisare. I enjoyed it during a break I had. I am thinking I can nominate the article for Did you know.... Would you like to help? I think mentioning Capa and Bowman would be interesting. = paul2520 (talk) 04:07, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
yes, Capa and Bowman are famous in Leipzig. I still have a lot of photos from this meeting in the Capa house. Maybe I can send you some photos to your email address and you decide which photos still belong in the Wikipedia. Lehman Riggs is still alive, he is probably now 100 years old and has experienced the death of Bowman. I help with Google Translate. --Caisare (talk) 04:54, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
@Caisare: Sure, you can send me an email here. Please include the source of the images. = paul2520 (talk) 05:43, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

Rick and Morty[edit]

Hello. You recently performed an edit to the Rick and Morty article, in which you added a "missing" Notes list. Perhaps I'm missing something, but there are no notes listed at this time. There already exists a populated reference list. I see that the {{notelist}} template has been added which would automatically populate the list... provided someone adds notes within the article body. I'm not here to interfere with the edit, I'm just making an observation.
Christopher, Sheridan, OR (talk) 06:39, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi, DeNoel, and thanks for following-up. At the point in time I added the section yesterday, there was a note & the missing {{notelist}} caused the page to be in the maintenance Category:Pages with missing references list. I removed the section since it's now empty. This sometimes happens if a stray note was transcluded, perhaps from a table that's maintained in another article, and it gets changed/removed there. = paul2520 (talk) 14:04, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
