Hello Extrala (koennte auch Hallo sagen, aber zurueck zum Englischen... ;-) Had a look at your recent good work on the VTES table and expansion sets, and noted that there is no Bloodlines article yet (the link is just a disambig). Also, could you provide a reference for all the data you have been adding? No need to stick it everywhere on the table obviously, but some source should be there. Cheers, MadMaxDog 10:48, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the appreciation! Bloodlines (VTES) link is now corrected. Source for the card count is both from White Wolf official site and my own counting (using the "FELB"-program). Source for the release dates is also the White Wolf official site (and partically from the newsgroup rec.games.trading-card.jyhad). So the question is how make a reference to this. Extrala 13:25, 18 May 2007 (UTC)
Speaking VERY strictly, the above is original research anyway. But I do not hold that too strictly. We should still add a link to the card lists as existing on the White Wolf website.MadMaxDog 13:43, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Grammar and usageEdit

I make it my personal policy never to correct or revise grammar and usage on the German Wikipedia, even though my German isn't bad, and even if I see an obvious mistake. Please do likewise. Thank you. Kelisi 03:15, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

I really don't know, how to answer this without sounding too impolite. Of course I am a non-native speaker. Of course I am making mistakes. But essentially you are saying, that non-native speakers (here: english), shouldn't do anything on the english Wikipedia, since they are not fit to do this ... I am appalled.

Hi Extrala, you removed the Part "Kreis" from "Ennepe-Ruhr-Kreis" in the article Wetter (Ruhr) and possibly in some other articles. I think, this might be wrong, because it is an essential Part of the name. Greetings --Filan (talk) 21:59, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

This is likely due the fact that the article on the "Ennepe-Ruhr-Kreis" is actually named Ennepe-Ruhr. I didn't create the "Ennepe-Ruhr" article, so I do not know the reasons for this naming convention. I might have added "Ennepe-Ruhr" in the infoboxes of the towns for ease of use (i.e. linking it to the district more easily). Maybe we need a redirection from "Ennepe-Ruhr-Kreis" to "Ennepe-Ruhr" or a renaming of this district article?!? Extrala (talk) 23:13, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
I am quite sure, that the article should have the word "Kreis" added. If nobody else will rename the article, I will. --Filan (talk) 20:07, 15 December 2007 (UTC)
It's Wikipedia. Go ahead, change it!! ;-) Extrala (talk) 08:46, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Hello, Extrala! I'd like to call your attention to the WikiProject Germany and the German-speaking Wikipedians' notice board. I hope their links, sub-projects and discussions are interesting and even helpful to you. If not, I hope that new ones will be.

Proposed deletion of Legacies of BloodEdit

The article Legacies of Blood has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

A search for references failed to find significant coverage in reliable sources to comply with notability requirements. This included web searches for news coverage, books, and journals, which can be seen from the following links:

Legacies of Blood – news, books, scholar Consequently, this article is about a subject that appears to lack sufficient notability.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{dated prod}} will stop the Proposed Deletion process, but other deletion processes exist.
