Kedves projekt tagok: a véleményetek kellene ehhez a törléshez. Szeretném hangsúlyozni, hogy több ízben volt erről már vita még a magyar wikin is. Most is vannak források a személy nevezetességére, személyszerint a törlés csak egy önös akció, semmi több. Nem reklámot akarok csinálni, de sajnos ezen az oldalon millárdnyi információ fut, ezért vhogy rá kell irányítani a figyelmet. Doncsecztalk 14:27, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Greater Hungary vs. Hungarian revisionism[edit]

I would like to ask for your opinions here: Talk:Greater_Hungary_(political_concept)#Requested_move Fakirbakir (talk) 20:42, 7 January 2013 (UTC)


Hello all,
Could anybody help with the Hungarian Air Force article? Some editors are changing numbers of helicopters back and forth. There are a couple of sources which are not particularly high-quality and which might be misleading or out of date. We can be confident that the air force got lots of helicopters in the past, but in the last few years some will have been put in a museum, dismantled for parts, sold, &c - so it's difficult to be confident of exact numbers now. (And if we can't trust a number, I think we should remove it from the article; others seem to disagree). Any suggestions? Can anybody get better or more recent sources?
Köszönöm - bobrayner (talk) 12:01, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

Regency 1918-[edit]

I wish to participate in Project Hungary. At present I am concerned about a regency following the reign of Karl IV. It appears in the articles that Karl IV approved of having Mihaly Karolyi follow Karl but as prime minister. Subsequent events indicate that a resignation from Karl had not become final. It seems that Karolyi was quite well intentioned and that many of his wishes were subverted unfairly. Karolyi did not seem to be interested in dumping the Habsburgs and I fail to see why Karl von Habsburg was beng treated as an enemy by some. Opposition against the Habsburgs can help justify the North German Confederation and the Kaiserreich and I do not believe that they deserve to be justified. RCNesland (talk) 04:22, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

You are, of course, welcome to participate in the project. You are also welcome to update any article which you think needs refinement. However, be sure to cite verifiable, reliable (e.g., academic) sources, since the contents of Wikipedia must be verifiable. Unfortunately, I cannot help you regarding your observation about Mihály Károlyi, but as long as there are considerable number of reliable sources which support your argument, please, go ahead with the changes. Your contributions are appreciated. Thanks and happy editing, KœrteFa {ταλκ} 21:21, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

János Esterházy[edit]

His page does not demonstrate the Hungarian viewpoint properly. The article needs serious improvement. Fakirbakir (talk) 07:37, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

I plan to continue contributing to that article, but quite busy at the moment. Hence, some help would indeed be appreciated, in order to ensure the balance of that article. Dr. Szent-Ivány's book about János Esterházy is freely available [1] and could be a possible source to use. Cheers, KœrteFa {ταλκ} 19:21, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for your answer (and for your link) :)! Fakirbakir (talk) 10:21, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
In this case, I will follow standard rules for questionable sources declaring extreme opinions and with poor verification of facts. I assume, there will not be any problem with this. Especially in regard to extreme opinions like "It has been the aim of all Czech political parties, government and exile groups to dominate Slovakia and to assimilate the Slovak people" (here) or "Not only has Slovakia been exploited economically and socially, but the Czechs have been doing everything possible to prevent Slovakia from culturally progressing at a normal pace." (here), or "Only a few Slovaks [...] took part in the uprising" (here) or "facts" like "The Slovak Peoples Party [...] embraced some 80 percent of the Slovak people (here) and many other extreme opinions and factual mistakes.--Ditinili (talk) 22:18, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
In *this* case? Which case? Anyway, you are very welcome if you take time to double-check those claims which are added to the article. This has the potential of serving as an excellent quality control. On the other hand, I do not think that you are right when you called Dr. Szent-Ivány's opinion extreme and talked about poor verification of facts (please, also see my answer on the Talk page of the article). However, if you think that his book is not reliable and should not be used on WP then, by all means, raise the issue on WP:RSN. Cheers, KœrteFa {ταλκ} 17:39, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
In the case of *this* book. Koertefa, I quoted several sentences. I believe that it will be quite easy to reach wide consensus that these options are strongly biased, extreme and more, they are clear lies. I will be especially interested on opinion of Czech editors who will blow away these theories in minute, just by documenting how many Slovak schools and cultural institutions were built only during the first 20 years of Czechoslovakia. And if we agree that this is shining example of extreme and biased source, there is no rational reason why to use such (at least) controvert source instead of some other reliable books.-Ditinili (talk) 18:51, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Hungarian language[edit]

There are two threads on the Talk page of the Hungarian language article about which I would like to ask your opinions. The first one is about the number of native speakers, while the second one is about the question whether the classification that Hungarian belongs to the Finno-Ugric group should appear (or only the statement that it is an Uralic language). Related to this, you may also want to check these comments. Thanks and cheers, KœrteFa {ταλκ} 13:42, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/The Wooden Belfry of Nyírbátor[edit]

Dear Hungary experts: This article, which as been submitted for review at Afc, refers back to an article in the Hungary Wikipedia, When I copy the first line of the Hungarian article into Google, it comes up with multiple web sites with the same text, but I can't read them. Before reviewing the English one, I'd like to make sure that the Hungarian one is not a copyright violation, or, if so, that the English one is not a direct translation. Can someone who speaks the language help? —Anne Delong (talk) 16:48, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

At first look I would say there is no copyright violation. Actually the source of those mentioned websites seems to be the Hungarian Wikipedia. One of them even cites its source (at "Nyírbátori református templom" [2]). These websites [3] are simple travel and tourism websites. The English text is dissimilar from the Hungarian content (therefore not a direct translation). Fakirbakir (talk) 21:18, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, that helps a lot. —Anne Delong (talk) 23:01, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Requested article: Hungarian Civil War (1384–1394)[edit]

A red link from Greater Poland Civil War which I just created. We have the Lithuanian Civil War (1381–1384), so it would be nice to complete the series of articles on the chaos in that time and place with the missing Hungarian war. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 09:48, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

Dear Piotrus, I think that article would not be created based on reliable sources. There were a series of internal conflicts, but they could not be grouped into a civil war. Borsoka (talk) 06:13, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
Hungarian historiography does not refer as "civil war" to these events. Hungarian Civil War (1440–1445), Hungarian Civil War (1526–1538) have similar problem. --Norden1990 (talk) 09:43, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
How does the Hungarian historiography refers to those events then? I don't think this is the term used in English literature, neither, so this red link probably needs to be removed... --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 11:01, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
As far as I know there are no separate umbrella terms for these events. Maybe trónharcok ("fights for the throne") is used, but I had to cheque it. Borsoka (talk) 03:52, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
It would be nice to know. List of wars involving Hungary has an entry for "Civil war between a part of the Hungarian nobility and Mary, Queen of Hungary and Sigismund king", so something probably should be linked from there (one of the reasons I've created the mentioned Polish civil war article was to have something linked from the similar entry at the List of wars involving Poland). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 05:01, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
I found this: Horváti-párt lázadása, "Horvat Rebellion" (Horvat or Horváti was az influential noble family, see John Horvat and Paul Horvat), however this is only a short part of that conflict between Sigismund and the nobility. --Norden1990 (talk) 15:24, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

Kalyi Jag[edit]

viktatúra / Victatorship[edit]

Hi there!

I've attempted to add an article to clarify the new upcoming term "Viktatúra" - "Victatorship", but my post was immediately deleted by user "Pagony".

Since I was simply notified that my article would be vandalism, due to being useless, pointless ("értelmetlen"), I've attempted to clarify if the issue at hand was related to thematics or style. Unfortunately, the reply received, "Encyclopedy, wikipedia is." failed to answer my query. Without taking a path to an argument with user Pagony, I hoped the community could clarify why the term "victatorship" would be, if at all, unacceptable in Wikipedia. I did remind user above that there are many terms in the Hungarian, as well as in the English language that derived from merging other terms or referring to leaders with significance. ie. etc similarly as the term mentioned above: refers to the institutional system applied and practised by the Hungarian government, led by Viktor Orban. I do not think, I, or either of us are here to judge the rightfulness of the act or even the meaning of the term, all we ought to do, is to present objectively and describe what it means, potentially, with appropriate reasoning.

I do realise, that my article needs further work, and that is the main reason I also rely on the wikipedia community to add details and work on the article, however that is subject to appearing at least.

Now referring to all mentioned above, please, do let me know, if I'm lost here, and do not hesitate to clarify if I am misunderstanding something.

many thanks

PA (talk) 16:05, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

It seems to me that a major problem with your page Viktatúra is that's it's not in English. Try putting it in the Hungarian version of Wikipedia Nigej (talk) 16:44, 28 December 2013 (UTC)

Elizabeth of Bosnia FAC[edit]

Last month I nominated the article about the Hungarian queen Elizabeth of Bosnia for FA status, but it has not attracted enough reviewers yet. Elizabeth, who ended up losing her head, governed Hungary during one of the most unstable periods in its history - unstable mostly because she and the monarch for whom she ruled were women. The article (rated GA) is of great interest to WikiProject Hungary, and I would be very grateful if a member of this WikiProject commented on the nomination.

It seems to be a hoax. I have found nothing about this "company". Fakirbakir (talk) 12:48, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

Article of Raba would need serious improvement. Actually the topic of the Hungarian automotive industry is mostly missing from English Wikipedia (IMO). Fakirbakir (talk) 19:58, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Two lists[edit]

Why are there two separate lists? According to the second article, "The borders of Hungary have changed substantially in the past century." The borders of Poland/Russia (Russian Empire, Soviet Russia, Soviet Union, Russian Federation) also changed "substantially in the past century", but there is no a separate article, named "List of Polish/Russian people who were born outside present-day [borders of] Poland/Russia." This is absurd, i think we sould merge them.--Rovibroni (talk) 20:03, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

That is a good point. Fakirbakir (talk) 20:30, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Copyright concerns related to your project[edit]

This notice is to advise interested editors that a Contributor copyright investigation has been opened which may impact this project. Such investigations are launched when contributors have been found to have placed copyrighted content on Wikipedia on multiple occasions. It may result in the deletion of images or text and possibly articles in accordance with Wikipedia:Copyright violations. The specific investigation which may impact this project is located here.

All contributors with no history of copyright problems are welcome to contribute to CCI clean up. There are instructions for participating on that page. Additional information may be requested from the user who placed this notice, at the process board talkpage, or from an active CCI clerk. Thank you. MER-C 04:22, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

I should add that many of the copyright violations in this case result from direct translations of non-free Hungarian-language sources into English. In order to identify these problems (of which there could be as many as 1500) we're in great need of editors with proficiency in both Hungarian and English. If you can read Hungarian, please consider volunteering some time at Wikipedia:Contributor copyright investigations/Norden1990 and Wikipedia:Contributor copyright investigations/Norden1990 2 to check some articles. Instructions are given at the top of the former page, though of course feel free to ask on the talk page if you have any questions about the procedure. Thanks! —Psychonaut (talk) 07:48, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Who decides what counts as "direct translation"? "Direct translation" is a non-existent thing because English and Hungarian are entirely different languages (IMHO, I am not a linguist)....Fakirbakir (talk) 17:09, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
When a work is translated, the copyright of the original persists in the translation. Thus, whenever freely licensed text is translated into English here, we are required to respect the terms of the licence (such as giving due credit), and whenever non-free text is translated, it needs to be removed as a copyright violation. See Derivative work, Wikipedia:Translation, and Wikipedia:Plagiarism#Translating for further details.
Admittedly, it is not always apparent whether a given text is a translation of a foreign-language original, or simply relies on it as a reference. In such cases many of the guides and principles from Wikipedia:Close paraphrasing can be applied or adapted to assess the text.
The translations involved in this contributor copyright investigation, however, are very clear-cut: entire documents have been slavishly translated sentence by sentence, with practically no edition whatsoever. That is, material is almost never omitted, reordered, or synthesized with facts from other sources; all the facts and arguments, and their order of presentation, are faithfully preserved in every respect except the language of communication. —Psychonaut (talk) 17:43, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Do we know that those CVs published on the website of the Parliament are protected? Are we sure that the transformation of CVs into biographies qualifies as an infridgement of the copyright? Borsoka (talk) 01:14, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
To answer your first question: Every modern text is presumptively copyrighted with all rights reserved from the moment of creation, so any time we wish to use third-party text on Wikipedia the onus is on us to show otherwise. In this case the contributor hasn't provided any evidence that the text was freely licensed or in the public domain, despite multiple requests which have been left unanswered for two weeks. I (and presumably User:MER-C and other administrators involved in this case) tried to independently confirm whether the text might be freely licensed or in the public domain by consulting the source website and the applicable laws of concerning government publications. There was no indication on the website that the MP biographies are free content, and while Hungarian law does provide that certain government publications are not subject to copyright, this appears to apply only to legal promulgations such as legislation and court rulings. (In any case, at least some of biographies look to be provided by the MPs themselves in a personal capacity.) If you are able to provide evidence that the biographies in question are free content, then please do so, as this will resolve a number of the cases without us having to delete any content. (Note, however, that this won't solve all the cases, as there are many others where substantial amounts of English text have been copied verbatim, with neither permission nor attribution.)
To answer your second question: "Transformation" of CVs into biographies may or may not constitute copyright infringement; it depends entirely on the nature and extent of the transformation. There is nothing wrong with taking a CV in one language and using the facts it contains to produce a biography in another language. Again, the cases we are seeing here are superficial, with large blocks of prose taken from Hungarian CVs and translated sentence by sentence into equivalent prose in English. That is, it's not just the facts which are being copied but also the manner and order in which they're presented, modulo the change in language. Again, our article on derivative works is useful here and covers translation. —Psychonaut (talk) 08:32, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Leaflet For Wikiproject Hungary At Wikimania 2014[edit]

Hi all,

My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.

One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.

This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:

• Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film

• Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.

• Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.

• Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____

• Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen’s Collaborative, The Signpost

For more information or to sign up for one for your project, go to:

Should articles in Category:Hungarian monarchs be separated into Category:Kings of Hungary, Category:Queens regnant of Hungary, and other subcategories to bring them in line with France and the British Isles? Chris Troutman (talk) 16:57, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

The proposal is mine, but Chris Troutman has suggested on my talk page that this change could be opportune. I created the category Category:Kings of Hungary while having the pattern Category:Kings of France. The supercategory is Category:European kings. I also created Category:Queens regnant of Hungary which is a subcat of Category:Queens regnant (similarly to Category:Queens regnant in the British Isles).
Besides the above indicated subcategories, Category:Magyar tribal chieftains and Category:Grand Princes of the Hungarians (not created yet) should also be included in Category:Hungarian monarchs.

I join you my private letter to Mr Cane.

Dear Mr Cane I shortened the article about 'Andras Schiff' because his political views were detailed too longish. Schiff is not a politician, he is one of the greatest living pianists of the world. The proportions of the article before my action were the following: biography: 26 lines, awards: 14 lines, political views 20 (!) lines. Is this all right? I think not. I shortened the section "political views" to 4 lines without changing its essence. I wrote the similar letter to THD3. Maybe, all the information I deleted are valid, but unnecessary. He is 60 now and the shortened section concern to his last 3 years (on 16 lines!). Please read the article about Adam Fischer conductor whose political views are the same as Schiff's. His political views are detailed in 4 lines. If you agree, please restore my modification. If not, I give you gladly more informations about this story. Best wishes Istvan Kassai pianist

I ask you to restore my revision, please. Please feedback my letter to my mail address above. Kindest regards István Kassai — Preceding unsigned comment added by Musicus2 (talkcontribs) 10:16, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Gyula Gömbös Edits POV/Anti-Semitic?[edit]

I'm concerned about edits made to Gyula Gömbös by I'm no expert on Gömbös and both sources are in Hungarian which I don't read, but these edits have the subtle appearance of being a POV defense or whitewashing of Gömbös. I even find some of the edits subtly anti-Semitic in themselves. The fact that these are the only edits made by an editor with no username or profile makes me even more suspicious.

Here are the quotes pertaining to Jews.

"Gömbös also supported certain political actions against Hungary’s Jews, having noted that Kun and many of the ministers in his Communist government were Jews. There was widespread sentiment in the country that the Jews were the primary backers of Communism."

"The Jewish leadership under Stem and Szanto supported the appointment of Gömbös and his programs in exchange for Gömbös promising not to enact any anti-Jewish laws and through his policies does not cause economic harm to the Jews. Gömbös kept his promise, and did not enact any anti-Jewish laws and his economic programs were favorable to the mercantile interests."

I'm afraid I don't have time to pursue this further at the moment, but I at least wanted to call attention to these concerns.Hirschjoshua (talk) 03:51, 25 August 2014 (UTC)


Dear Editors,

I came across the page of Hungarian National Bank ( The bank has changed its English name and logo after the recent (1st October 2013) merger with the Hungarian Financial Supervisory Authority. The new name according to its own website ( is "The Central Bank of Hungary". Shouldn't be the page renamed accordingly?

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Ernő Polgár is a well known writer in Hungary - has received for his anti racist principles - the Radnóti Anti-Racism Award 2014. The readers can find the different manifestations of the anti-Semitism in his works. Ernő Polgar's philosophy is, “the measure of the civilization are the respect for ancestors and humanism.” Tamas Barat President of the Radnóti Anti-Racism Award Foundation User:TomBarat

Ernő Polgar a broad-minded unbiased writer, he does not say more than he thinks. 

He does not fake it and try to make it appear, to himself or the reader, that there is a coherent and probable whole when there isn't, has new insights.He is natural skeptics and think of things from their reader’s point of view.He strives to explain, to make things a little bit clearer, to make sense of our world and tells a full story,roots out opposing viewpoints.

At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Stephen I of Hungary[edit]

The "Artistic representation" part of the article is still contains unreferenced text. I am not an expert in this field, but the fact that no references to reliable sources have been added for several years to this part of the article suggests that that part is not notable. During the second FAC, this issue has again raised. I suggest that that part of the article should be deleted if we cannot find proper references before the end of the FAC. Borsoka (talk) 16:32, 4 February 2015 (UTC)


Please see Talk:Nyíregyháza#Religions, Churches. There are problems with the English, and not just in that section.

Article request: Ottó Herman[edit]

Ottó Herman, Hungarian naturalist, archaeologist, and politician, currently lacks an article on English Wikipedia, although he has articles on several non-English Wikis, and a Featured Article on Hungarian Wikipedia: see Herman Ottó. It appears most of the biographical sources are in Hungarian, so if someone fluent enough to translate could at least make half as good an article, it would be a great contribution to English Wikipedia (I really want to read it!). Note we have already have Ottó Herman Museum, and a nicely curated Commons category at Commons:Category:Ottó Herman. I don't speak or read a bit of Hungarian, but I'd be willing to help find sources. All the best, --Animalparty-- (talk) 04:19, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

genus vs gens[edit]

I may have been over-hasty. Unfamiliar with Hungary, I happened upon one article that confused the Latin words genus (pl. genera) and gens (pl. gentes), and 'corrected' it. Then looking at its category I see there are dozens of Hungarian "genera". Please advise: is genus standard usage for a Hungarian analogue of Roman gens? —Tamfang (talk) 21:01, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Unreferenced villages[edit]

In November 2006 a user bulk created a few hundred articles on Hungarian towns and villages. You can find them under Category:Populated_places_in_Hungary_by_county.

Hungarian and Serbian as minority languages in Pannonian Croatia[edit]

You might be interested to share your oppinions on requested comments I made last month on article Minority language in order to solve issue of minority languages in ifnoboxes on articles of municipalities and towns in Croatia (Hungarian language Wikipedia policy might be affected in articles like Kneževi Vinogradi). I think that your involvement can help to overcome the fictitious conflict made by an editor that insists on eliminating co-official minority names (covered by sources) from articles by the claim that WP Croatia has a consensus to eliminate them from articles. I do not know anything about such a consensus and I think that he present his biased opinion as project position. Still, your involvement would be benefitial.

'Hungarian rock' - new articles for worldwide - request![edit]

Hungarian rock music is desperately underrepresented in international music genre articles, because of the lack of links and sub- and subarticle chains. Further articles related to 'Hungarian rock' would be very important, to make Hungarian artists available from international music genre articles, like 'Alternative rock'. A key important article would be eg. 'Hungarian alternative rock'. On this branch the following articles should be created:

  • 'Alternative rock' > new section should be created: 'East-European Alternative Rock'
  • 'East-European Alternative Rock' > new article should be created, indcluding a section of 'Hungarian Alternative Rock', with 'Main Article: Hungarian Alternative Rock' link
  • 'Hungarian alternative rock > new article should be created with subgenres
  • existing Hungarian alternative subgenres articles shoud be link into 'Hungarian alternative rock' article, if needed (eg. Indie rock)
  • 'Hungarian punk rock' > new article should be created
