Articles about German cities outdatedEdit

Many articles about German cities are outdated, e.g. name mayors that aren't in office for more than 3 years [1][2]. -- (talk) 16:21, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

A new newsletter directory is out!Edit

A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one. If your WikiProject and its taskforces have newsletters (even inactive ones), or if you know of a missing newsletter (including from sister projects like WikiSpecies), please include it in the directory! The template can be a bit tricky, so if you need help, just post the newsletter on the template's talk page and someone will add it for you.

about the importance assessement of Bad WimpfenEdit

I think Bad Wimpfen should be rated mid-importance. It is a spa town (not a village) with a long and rich history and some notable architecture, Its station even has its own article. It is better known in the region than its size would suggest. It's mentioned by Mark Twain and in The Reader. Bad Lobenstein is another historic spa town with a smaller population and it is also rated mid-importance. --Letkhfan (talk) 15:25, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

As far as I am concerned feel free to change it. Even though I do a lot of assessments myself (including importance ratings), I personally think that in many cases the question of importance is somewhat subjective. Ekki01 (talk) 17:58, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Germany in the 1800's, and German-American Immigrants to USAEdit

I've been working recently on some 1800s German-American information on Wikipedia (William Radde) and Wikisource s:Portal:German Society of the City of New York. I don't speak German, but I bumbled and mumbled my way through one addition to German Wikisource -- with a LOT of help from German Wikisource volunteers -- de:s:Mitglieder-Verzeichniß der Deutschen Gesellschaft der Stadt New-York für 1863. I also tried to expand de:s:Auswanderung#Nordamerika_Gesellschaften.

While working on this stuff, I realized that the contribution of German-Americans to the development of the United States is not well covered on Wikipedia. Coverage seems OK for people who attracted popular newspaper coverage, but rather weak for German organizations and individuals in the USA who developed communities, hospitals, and changes to USA and state laws in the 1800s. I assume that's somewhat due to anti-German sentiment during WWI and WWII.

A related question I've bumped into is What did "Germany" mean in the 1800s when people said or wrote where they were from?

I got into this by wondering why William Radde is completely unknown to history. He was a businessman/merchant who apparently went to great efforts to assist German immigrants to the USA -- within his knowledge at that time of what would be most helpful. From what I've seen, he probably spoke a half dozen languages or more.

Wikipedia has separate language Wikipedias. I only speak English. I would greatly appreciate any contributions from multi-lingual Wikipedians to the above mentioned articles.-- Outlier59 (talk) 02:54, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Otto BrixnerEdit

Hi, could you please have a look at this article. It has been imported from German Wikipedia where it is a case for arbitration committee due to puffery. I removed the attacking contents, but I am not sure whether this work is finished. --2A02:8388:580:6600:49AA:E6F2:7647:7BF5 (talk) 17:06, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

I will look closer at the German article, talk page discussion, and refs. The translation was too literal to be understood in some places. The Mollath article is well written and can serve as a guideline. I remember this case. Jmar67 (talk) 00:45, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
