Proposed deletion of Annett RennebergEdit

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Annett Renneberg has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted after seven days unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article. The nominator also raised the following concern:

Unreferenced article about German actress

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one.

Merge Capital ẞ to ßEdit

There is a discussion regarding whether a separate article ought to be maintained for Capital ẞ or not that is of interest to the project, talk:ß#Merge Capital ẞ here?.--Ermenrich (talk) 13:42, 31 October 2020 (UTC)

New article on artist Paul SeckelEdit

I created a new article on the artist and painter, Paul Seckel. Any further research would be appreciated! Right cite (talk) 04:16, 5 November 2020 (UTC)

The Weimar Republic is NOT a locationEdit

Since I've seen that somebody had changed this again on the article of Helmut Kohl, and since the topic is coming up again and again. Can we please find a consensus that the Weimar Republic is not a place, but a time period, and should therefore not be stated as "place of birth". It's like writing somebody was born in American Civil War... Zwerg Nase (talk) 15:16, 11 November 2020 (UTC)

FAR for Battle of BlenheimEdit

I have nominated Battle of Blenheim for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. (t · c) buidhe 02:02, 25 November 2020 (UTC)

User page in German - editor needs a bilingual welcomeEdit

A new editor's user page, D7evenZ (talk · contribs), is in the German language. I can't tell if it is a proper user page or a user-space draft or a WP:NOTWEBHOST page.

Could someone who reads German check it out, welcome the new editor, and if it's not a valid "user page" move it to a sub-page, blank it, or tag it for deletion? The same content or something close to it is in his sandbox. davidwr/(talk)/(contribs) 22:08, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

I'd say it's not really a valid user page, more a personal biographical page with links to his selected websites. And he also appears to be a user who has been banned indefinitely at German Wikipedia. See here. Bermicourt (talk) 22:51, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

Confusing trio of WW II orgs with similar namesEdit

Your feedback would be appreciated at this discussion about three German propaganda organizations during World War II with very similar names, and what to do about it. Thanks, Mathglot (talk) 01:25, 15 December 2020 (UTC)

Nicole (German Singer)Edit

I've spent the last few days expanding the Nicole article. I've rewritten most of it and added some tables for her discography. Any feedback would be welcome. Up until a few days ago, I've mostly only done small edits on Wikipedia. GravityIsForSuckers (talk) 16:17, 18 December 2020 (UTC)

Heads-up about major revisions at GermansEdit

This is just a heads-up that the article Germans is undergoing major revisions in the last few days. In addition, the Talk page has seen a lot of mostly unrelated activity in the last few weeks, including an Rfc (5 Dec) about the meaning of "Germans", and there is other Talk page activity as well. Those of you interested in the article, might wish to lurk, comment, or take part. Mathglot (talk) 01:24, 23 December 2020 (UTC)

Fringe EtymologiesEdit

Hi everyone,

I've discovered a number of Fringe etymologies at the page Slavicism (see [1], [2], and this talk page thread and I was hoping anyone who knows more about Slavic etymologies could help pick out some more (I'm limited to my knowledge of Germanic). Thanks!--Ermenrich (talk) 19:36, 23 December 2020 (UTC)

Help finding German sourcesEdit

Hello. I intend to create an article for Thede Kahl, but most results in Google about him are in German, which makes it difficult for me to find sources. Furthermore, he is an academic, so I'm not sure where exactly can I look to find information on him. For this reasons, I need some help from German editors who may be more successful at finding the sources. I don't mean to make the page too long, a stub with some sources to prove that he's notable is enough for me. Kahl is mostly focused on studying peoples from the Balkans and is a professor at the University of Jena. Super Ψ Dro 13:26, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

Magnificat (Hoffmann)Edit

Please check out Magnificat (Hoffmann), and the talk page of Magnificat in A minor (Hoffmann). "Kleine Magnaficat" is wrong German, "Das kleine Magnificat" would be correct, or "Kleines Magnificat". Unfortunately some English sources read as if German grammar can be disregarded when speaking English. Is that right? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 23:36, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

February Online Edit-a-thonEdit

Hello, this is my first online Edit-a-thon that I am organizing. Which you can find here: Wikipedia:WikiProject_Organized_Labour/Online_edit-a-thon_Tech_February_2021 - Online and global about trade unions and technology. I am based in Berlin, and would love advice/participation of other folks interested in WP:WikiProject Germany to attend, and suggest topics/articles of interest. ~ Shushugah (talk) 19:19, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
