I'm 50% Slovenian.[edit]

My mother's folks came over on the boat (he in 1897 and she in 1895), both from the same village. So Mom was pure Slovenian, (but born here so she coulda been POTUS if she desired the post). I read up a bit, wondering about my roots: I found that the people there are industrious, inventive, artful and generally over all liked by their neighbors.
The only, oh, let's call it, "bad" thing I found: When the Nazis occupied Slovenia during WWII (the big one), the leaders (and the people apparently), even before the Nazi's demanded anything, were all like; "Oh thank God you're here! We heard you guys have a 'solution' for the Jews, we've got tons of them, we know where they all are and can even help round them up for you."

I stopped my research at that point.C®ackeЯ

Don't know where you got the "Jew problem solution" thing. There weren't that many Jews (thousand, few hundred more - they were banished from Slovene lands in middle ages) in Slovenia in the time of Nazi invasion and even then there wasn't any more or any less antisemitism than in other countries. Which village were your parent's from, btw?-- DasRationalpersone Socks cat 1.JPG (Annoy me!) 14:50, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

I think it's kinda cute with see also, and references... but...[edit]

I'm not at all a fan of all the titles being in slovak. Cut and fun is one thing, but to the point where it's unreadable? --Pink mowse.pngGodotI live in the Infinite monkey cage 16:07, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Fine. Btw, look through your window. I'm sure Slovene ultranationalist intelligence agency agents are watching you. -- DasRationalpersone Socks cat 1.JPG (Annoy me!) 16:25, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Pictures in "History" section[edit]

There's so many interesting stuff I could include there, but it's just too messy. I plan to include an antisemitic poster by Yugoslavia, too, but I won't be able to sort the pictures out - so can anyone help? -- DasRationalpersone Socks cat 1.JPG (Annoy me!) 13:12, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Here's a temporary solution. -- DasRationalpersone Socks cat 1.JPG (Annoy me!) 18:29, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
If we really have to have a gallery of pictures, it would probably be better at the end of the article than the middle. Sam Tally-ho! 18:41, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
All the pictures are related to history. I'll try to incorporate images to the text better 'morrow. -- DasRationalpersone Socks cat 1.JPG (Annoy me!) 20:02, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Trimming this[edit]

A lot of this is fluff. Тycommunications wire

Well, off to work then. -- DasRationalpersone Socks cat 1.JPG (Annoy me!) 19:51, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
And this better not be another one of those too-much-content-is-number-1-enemy-of-this-wiki kind of raid. -- DasRationalpersone Socks cat 1.JPG (Annoy me!) 19:54, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
No it is a wtf does this section have to do with the mission raid. Тycommunications wire 19:54, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
Just why do we have such a comprehensive article on this country anyways? --il'Dictator Mikal 19:56, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

The history section is a combination of actually mission relevant stuff, and absolute gobbledy-gook, but the geography and language have been cut. Тyeh? 20:00, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
I kno9w hes a sloven, but it still doesnt say why it managed to become a cut down wikipedia article. --il'Dictator Mikal 20:05, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
Too much free time, I guess. -- DasRationalpersone Socks cat 1.JPG (Annoy me!) 20:09, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Wow, I'm surprisingly starting to like this raid. -- DasRationalpersone Socks cat 1.JPG (Annoy me!) 20:14, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Me and my socks have literally spent hours trying to keep on top of this article, and I speak for all of us when I say that we would gladly turn a blind eye to it being taken out back and shot once in the back of the head, execution-style.

Again Trimming[edit]

So; since removing the history lecture isnt allowed, and i know exactly where this came from... what of the history section do we actually need here? Some of its useful for us, but most of it doesnt actually have relevence to a wiki dedicated to Pseudo-x.--il'Dictator Mikal 06:35, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

"So; since removing the history lecture isnt allowed" Why the hell not? If it's shite, and off-mission, trim it.
"what of the history section do we actually need here?" Very little. A sentence or two, maybe.
"Some of its useful for us," Some of the stuff on gay rights, sure, but that's about it.
"...but most of it doesnt actually have relevence to a wiki dedicated to Pseudo-x." Then take the axe to it.
