in German language: Desiderata - erwünschte Beiträge


This is a list of all topics to which contributions are urgently needed. Most of them are those that have been noticed in Wikipedia as one-sided representations or that contain such. The greater part of the Wikipedia articles is usually quite okay, so that a lot of material can be taken over easily. Only individual devaluations need to be corrected or omitted facts added or other sources added. Sometimes what has been noticed, you find behind the term in brackets. This page can be completed by everyone.
If you wish to contribute, please go the following four steps:

1. register (click on top right link on this page to do so),

2. write an email to jw@provings.info to tell that you have done so and to be given editing rights,

3. click on one of the below headings to edit that page or choose one from the Contents page or create a new page (how to, see here).

4. on that page click on "edit" in the top menu and the page will open to show a word processing version
