Hello Daniel Jones,
We appreciate the extensive work you have done on the Zurich parishes pages.
It has been noted that the Wiedikon parish, Zürich, Switzerland page has been "Blanked". It is preferable to place a Delete template on an erroneous page. If the spelling or other part of the title is in error it is preferable to create a new page with the correct title and Redirect the page with the incorrect title to the one with the correct title. It is never appropriate to "Blank" a page. Please revisit the Wiedikon parish, Zürich, Switzerland and take appropriate action. Parrisl 01:39, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Bern vs Berne, Switzerland
One of my tasks is to review new pages. When you were adding parishes in Bern, Switzerland, several of them had the spelling in the title as BERNE ( as opposed to BERN ). Being unfamiliar with Switzerland myself, I did not know if this was done purposefully. You can review your edits and creations at this link . Linda R Chappell 22:41, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
The canton of Bern is bilingual, with the majority of parishes speaking German and a minority speaking French. I have chosen to differentiate the different parishes based on the language used at the parish level. Thus, the parish of Habkern would have called it Bern, while the parish of La Ferrière would have called it Berne. The cantonal page will be organized under the dominant language (so it would be Bern instead of Berne, and Fribourg instead of Freiburg).— Preceding unsigned comment added by Gublerjones (talk | contribs) 27 February 2014 17:47
Thanks for the clarity. I will let the others on the Wiki team know. It's nice to have a specialist working on these pages.Linda R Chappell 19:50, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
