Move to "Category:Third Reich"[edit]

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose The English Wikipedia calls its article en:Nazi Germany, same for the category. There should be no reason for moving this one. --217.186.136.221 14:09, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

You would say as well everything is wrong with the title, since your opinion grounds to nothing. In particular, you have not read the Wikipedia article Nazi Germany, which states that: “The term Nazi Germany is not politically correct as it does not reflect the historical dates.”. In fact, this term is unsourced and indeterminate, that is incompatible with any classification process in Wikimedia Commons.
You'll find “Third Reich” in this Encyclopaedia Britannica webpage or there. These sources have no entry for “Nazi Germany”. There are also more Google hits for “Third Reich” than for “Nazi Germany”.
Each word in “Nazi Germany” is wrong:
  • Nazi means Of, relating to, controlled by, or typical of the National Socialist German Workers' Party. Refer to a country from the name of a political party is abnormal: we are not talking about “communist China”, but People's Republic of China.
  • “Germany” is wrong, because the subject regards non-German territories too.
At last, this category is not consistent with the previously-created gallery Third Reich and many subcategories with the correct designation Third Reich.
Grounds on these reasons, I am convinced that the insertion of the wrong term “Nazi Germany” in the Wiki projects was made to “send a message”, that is unacceptable. --Juiced lemon 11:54, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Die neue Bezeichnung ist eindeutig die bessere. "Nazi Germany" ist eigentlich nur ein polemischer Ausdruck. "Drittes Reich" ist dagegen die korrekte Bezeichnung! Reichensee 20:27, 22 November 2007 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Strong oppose, Third Reich is as much Propaganda as Nazi Germany. On dewiki you'll find the article Deutsches Reich 1933 bis 1945 and Zeit des Nationalsozialismus. The article Drittes Reich says, that on 1939-07-10 Hitlers' request was broadcasted again, that Journalists shouldn't use Drittes Reich anymore. Achates 11:20, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

So, you, sorry that article says, we all should follow Hitlers' request. -- Túrelio 13:25, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

“Third Reich” is translated propaganda. --Polarlys 18:03, 23 November 2007 (UTC) "Nazi Germany" is Indiana Jones speak. So can we find a better term? --Wuselig 00:14, 27 November 2007 (UTC)
