DistrictsEdit

Skåne consists of 33 municipalities, which should be divided into sub-regions. Suggestions:

What do you say? /Yvwv (talk) 17:39, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

I'd say no. We had this division in place for a year and red links are still red. There are around 16 articles on Scania here, which nicely fit into two lists of "cities" and "other destinations", as evidenced in this article. The mid-level region articles add nothing but confusion and a lot of useless (for the traveller) pages. I'd roll that back to just Scania with direct links to cities, municipalities and locations which have an article - all that can be remotely considered a tourist destination do have an article.

Temperature scaleEdit

Why would the Fahrenheit scale be used for a region where it has never been used? /Yvwv (talk) 23:28, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

No important reason, especially as it's a synch to do a web search on "Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit", but the odder thing is the consistent misspelling of Celsius as "Celcius", which I've fixed two or three times now. Ikan Kekek (talk) 00:35, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

Stay Safe sectionEdit

Deleted

Scania is very safe, with the exception that in recent years, there have been several racist attacks against non-Swedes, connected with the rise of the far-right Sweden Democrats in the area.

The statement is unfounded, and bears little relevance to the average traveller. In the last years, many articles about Sweden have been amended with biased and/or unfounded statements about immigrants, racism, crime, and drugs, most often by new users, and with a more or less obvious political agenda. They need to be weighted from an international and practical point of view. /Yvwv (talk) 16:14, 25 December 2016 (UTC)

UnderstandEdit

"King Charles XI enforced a brutal assimilation policy in Scania, which included the foundation of the university in Lund, to promote the Swedish language."

Is there a better example to illustrate the brutality of Charles XI's assimilation policy than opening a university? Or do the Swedes have a different definition of brutality than English-speaking do? Ground Zero (talk) 10:34, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
