I am still working on Upper Silesia. Time is the problem. Matt58 (talk) 16:24, 6 November 2022 (UTC)

It looks pretty good. --Crusader (talk) 18:06, 6 November 2022 (UTC)
If you ever find the time, an article on Lower Silesia would be really great. --Crusader (talk) 17:12, 9 November 2022 (UTC)

I will eventually get there but there is a page called Silesia and I wonder if it is necessary to have one called Lower Silesia. Upper Silesia, for instance, was always separated from the rest, since 1163. Matt58 (talk) 10:04, 16 November 2022 (UTC)

You are probably right, thanks! --Crusader (talk) 15:44, 16 November 2022 (UTC)

I see you have set up a category called 'People from the Province of Silesia' when there was already a category called 'People from Silesia'. I am inclined to think that your title is too long and cumbersome and that 'People from Silesia' is better. Are you able to merge these or shall I? Matt58 (talk) 10:04, 16 November 2022 (UTC)

Please decide, but I thought it would be important to highlight the people from the Province (1815 to 1919) in comparison to those born there before and after. --Crusader (talk) 15:44, 16 November 2022 (UTC)
OK I see your point Matt58 (talk) 16:43, 18 November 2022 (UTC)


I have meant to raise with you a few points about English usage. Look at this: "at last Oberst z. V." Firstly we would never ever say "at last". (Except in describing an activity.) We would say, maybe: "and lastly" or "finally". The overwhelming majority of English-speakers simply do not know German and therefore your insistence on putting German ranks and German words etc., is exceptionally frustrating. Even I, with my very meagre German, do not know what some of them mean in English. Would you place English military descriptions in a German text article? Of course not. Wherever possible we should be putting the English translations in the English-language Metapedia. Matt58 (talk) 16:43, 18 November 2022 (UTC)

Thanks, well do. --Crusader (talk) 17:20, 18 November 2022 (UTC)

Requesting contact with Mister Crusader

Sir, I have an important communication to send to Your attention. You are respectfully requested to write to my electronic address for private delivery of the message, or if You prefer, then I write a short message on this talk page. If You choose the first method, my address is:

cssdixieland AT tutanota DOT com

The electronic address is written in that manner for thwarting automatic address-harvesting software. The correct address is obtained by replacing the string 'AT' with the character '@' and the string 'DOT' with the character '.' in a single horizontal line and without surrounding spaces.

If You prefer to receive the message here, then a short introductory text will be written on this page, but still full details will be given via electronic post.

Receive, Sir, a Military Confederate Salute.

Dixieland for ever !

Hello Crusader! I wanted to email you. Can you show me where the page to send is? --Facella (talk) 22:21, 1 January 2023 (UTC)

Yes, please look to the left and find "Email this user" under "Tools". --Crusader (talk) 17:38, 2 January 2023 (UTC)
Too bad I don't have an email button.--Facella (talk) 20:30, 2 January 2023 (UTC)
Visit my "User page", then you should find "Email this user" to the left between "Logs" and "View user groups". --Crusader (talk) 22:37, 2 January 2023 (UTC)
Unfortunately, as a user, I don't yet have an email button. I wanted to ask if you could take over the German department. You have my support!--Facella (talk) 23:20, 2 January 2023 (UTC)

Hallo, my English is bad. Larry Fink - can you edit my entry? Facella (talk) 22:55, 7 January 2023 (UTC)

Travis Kalanick - can you edit my entry? Facella (talk) 14:45, 15 January 2023 (UTC)


Please could you leave the "sources" in situ. "Further reading" does not necessarily imply that they are sources for the page concerned. "Further reading" may just mean 'also you could look at these'. Matt58 (talk) 16:52, 3 January 2023 (UTC)

Yes! Maybe as "Sources and further reading"? --Crusader (talk) 22:01, 4 January 2023 (UTC)


Two further recipients of the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross on the Insterburg page for you. Matt58 (talk) 13:41, 5 January 2023 (UTC)

Thanks, Matt! --Crusader (talk) 00:11, 7 January 2023 (UTC)
Clearly you have not read the Documents on the Sudetenland book as it is rather a general book and many of the reports contained in it are outside what was the Gau of Sudetenland.l For instance the atrocities and Pilsen and Brunn. Shall I remove the Reichsgau reference or will you. Matt58 (talk) 11:40, 9 January 2023 (UTC)

Tidied up the grammar on Eike. Poor translation from the German, whoever did it.Matt58 (talk) 09:21, 19 January 2023 (UTC)

Well done! --Crusader (talk) 00:07, 20 January 2023 (UTC)
