Talk

  • Don't we consider Germany, Austria and Confederatio Helvetica to be in Central Europe? Personally I'd be happy to see some faces from the glorified wikipedia.de et al. :) Aegis Maelstrom 08:09, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
    "Central and Eastern Europe" is the part of Europe which was previously under Soviet influence (and thus has, to some extent, a shared history and culture). Of course, all interested Wikimedians are welcome, no matter where they come from! I just thought a common event for Wikimedians from CEE makes sense as their situation is more similar to each other than to the US / Western Europe ("The West"). --Tgr 14:45, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
    Well, there are many definitions of both "central" and "eastern" Europe. Isn't Germany a, so genannte, Mitteleuropa? :) Moreover, Eastern Germany was in the Warsaw Pact and Austria needed to be neutral after the Soviets resigned from their part of it. However, maybe you are right that after the Iron Curtain the division different (although the times are still changing :) ). Anyway, let all the folks who want to come, come! It will be fun. :) Aegis Maelstrom 15:01, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
