Gottlob Berger scheduled for TFAEdit

This is to let you know that the Gottlob Berger article has been scheduled as today's featured article for July 16, 2019. Please check the article needs no amendments. If you're interested in editing the main page text, you're welcome to do so at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/July 16, 2019, but note that a coordinator will trim the lead to around 1000 characters anyway, so you aren't obliged to do so.

We also suggest that you watchlist Wikipedia:Main Page/Errors up to the day of this TFA. Thanks! Jimfbleak - talk to me? 15:24, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi PM ... that was a hard blurb to write. See WT:TFA#Gottlob Berger. - Dank (push to talk) 18:40, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
I'll have a look. I wasn't going to run it until the anniversary of his war crimes conviction, so hadn't done anything about a blurb as yet. Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 22:52, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, Dan. Great job. I've tweaked it a bit to add in some more about his war crimes conviction and removed a sentence, hopefully still within tolerances? Cheers, Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 01:43, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks kindly. Tweaks look good! 959 characters. - Dank (push to talk) 03:02, 19 June 2019 (UTC)

ZmajEdit

I gather that you want to take Zmaj to FAC? What I have on-hand might be good enough, but if you've got any Serbo-Croatian sources those would probably be very helpful.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 14:04, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

Definitely one that I'd like to get to FA, as part of trying to get the Ships of the Royal Yugoslav Navy GT to FT. I'll see what I have. Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 00:30, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
Hopefully, you can find better coverage of its peacetime activities and maybe cross-check the wartime ones.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 00:39, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

Wiki Character AttacksEdit

When I saw the hugely false statements, I had to sign up and add the correct information. Should all Slovenians not be allowed to contribute to the Domobranci page, or any Slovenian page for that matter? As they would have some family member that was affected by this point in history? I have used only documented facts, and information to confirm my additions/edits, so I do not need any advice on that. And not sure how I am positively skewing the domobranci? If anything, I feel you are looking at this as if it is a black or white answer, which it isn't. There was much more involved. And its interesting that the whole article seems to focus on the Nazi connection, missing out much of the years prior, as well as the most horrible part of their history when 12,000 of the domobranci were sent back to their deaths by the British. Sounds to me like someone is skewing this to their own spin. And I do not appreciate being questioned about my motives, when I have provided more than enough facts, references, and information backing up my edits. Bohsie (talk) 14:50, 20 June 2019 (UTC)

I'm not attacking your character, I'm pointing out common traps that new editors can fall into in this area, and by your own admission you have a family connection to the Slovene Home Guard. I've been editing in the Yugoslavia in WWII space for eight years, and I've seen many new editors fall into these traps. I've barely edited this article before, but I do have copies of several sources that discuss the organisation, so I'll be adding material from them over the next little while.

Rather than us editing and undoing, and going back and forth, why not work together to provide the correct version of events, unless your sole focus is to show that the Domonbranci was Nazis, which we know wasn't the case. It seems like your only agenda is to label the Domobranci Nazis'. Bohsie (talk) 15:26, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
My agenda to is reflect what the reliable sources say about the Home Guard. Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 01:55, 22 June 2019 (UTC)

TFAEdit

Thank you for Raymond Leane, "a highly decorated Australian Army officer who rose from the rank of captain to lead a brigade during World War I, and was dubbed "the foremost fighting leader" in the Australian Imperial Force. After the war he was quickly appointed as the Commissioner of the South Australia Police, a role he carried out with distinction for 24 years, overseeing significant developments in the force, for which he was knighted."! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:57, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
