Proposed deletion of Annett Renneberg[edit]

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.

New bot to remove completed infobox requests[edit]

Hello! I have recently created a bot to remove completed infobox requests and am sending this message to WikiProject Germany since the project currently has a backlogged infobox request category. Details about the task can be found at Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/PearBOT 2, but in short it removes all infobox requests from articles with an infobox, once a week. To sign up, reply with {{ping|Trialpears}} and tell me if any special considerations are required for the Wikiproject. For example: if only a specific infobox should be detected, such as {{infobox journal}} for WikiProject Academic Journals; or if an irregularly named infobox such as {{starbox begin}} should be detected. Feel free to ask if you have any questions!

Title of the office of "Ministerpräsident" in English[edit]

I stumbled over some attempts to translate the title Ministerpräsident. It appears that someone decided to translate it "minister president" or even as a whole Wiki category "ministers president" which is even worse. It is a poor translation and is what native German speakers would call "Denglish".

The office of Ministerpräsident combines the roles and functions of head of government and head of state (sovereignty in Germany resides with the states and is only delegated to the Federation). As such the adequate translation would be "governor".

I would strongly recommend to replace the use of "minister president" and such in all relevant articles. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mareaustralis (talkcontribs) 20:36, 15 January 2020 (UTC)

The common translation is "minister-president", especially as a title. The Oxford dictionary on my iPhone also gives "prime minister" or "governor", which could be used depending on the context. I might say "Markus Söder is the governor of the German state of Bavaria", if someone in the U.S. were to ask me who he his and I thought "governor" would be the best way to express it. There is no one-size-fits-all translation. Jmar67 (talk) 03:55, 16 January 2020 (UTC)


Legiendamm has been proposed for deletion. I don't speak German. Are any WikiProject Germany members able to find sourcing or give some feedback on the article's talk page? ---Another Believer (Talk) 16:20, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

Absent assessment classes in other WikiProject[edit]

@Jmar67 and Vami IV: and others. I see that User:WP 1.0 bot/Tables/Project/Germany shows also class "redirect" and class "draft". Unfortunately these classes are not exist here: User:WP 1.0 bot/Tables/Project/Estonia. Can anyone help to add this two classes to WikiProject Estonia assessment table?--Estopedist1 (talk) 15:14, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

I don't have template editor rights, but |QUALITY_SCALE = on {{WikiProject Estonia}} needs to be changed from extended to subpage. Best Wishes, Lee Vilenski (talkcontribs) 19:03, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Sagar Aryal (2nd nomination) may be of interest to this project. As the article was refunded before, it would be ideal to have a more permanent resolution to the notability question. Best, Usedtobecool ☎️ 08:26, 16 March 2020 (UTC)

German and German Nazi vs Nazi[edit]

Hello all- I'm hoping to get some input from people with experience working on articles related to Nazi Germany: A new editor going under the moniker of GermanCamps is changing instances of Nazi to German or German Nazi. I find the changes make for awkward and redundant wording. I'm guessing this is not the first time such an issue has come up, and am wondering if anyone here might have input or can point to earlier discussions. See these diffs: Liberation of Auschwitz concentration camp, Nazi concentration camp badge; and discussion. Thanks in advance for any input, and for pinging any users who might be interested.
