@ Frederik
Everybody shall know that I've asked for your moderation several times this year, myself.
Unfortunately, your citation of  PeeWee's mail does not tell, who really had complained of which of my edits.
• Most of them were not at all inovative, but the elimination of errors (shared lane vs. suggestiestrook vs. Schutzstreifen) and the conversion of the DE-articles on bicycle featuires from a labyrinth of partliy contradicting guidelines into a consistant manual.
• An important subject was the explanation of what kinds of cycling facilities exist in reality. If people have wrong ideas on them they cannot map them correctly.
• Before started to edit in Wiki articles, I had edited in talks.
• With my main edits, I've invited everybody to improve them, such as [[DE_talk:Bicycle/Radverkehrsanlagen_kartieren#Gründe für meine Überarbeitung]]
• On PeeWee32 favourite subject, the tag bicycle=sidepath, I had constrictive discussions with him, Mateusz Konieczny and Jgpacker between 12:09, 8 October 2014 and 08:48, 18 November 2014‎
•• Before my edtis on that article, part of the illustrations were misleading, as most German optional cycletracks have no sign at all, and  bicycle=no as a counterpart of bicycle=use sidepath affords a photo of a discriminative cycling ban, not of a pedestrian zone.
