    I think the points for de.wikiquote actually apply to all articles relating to living people, even if the context is in an article and not a stand-alone quote. Definitely something to look at that could mitigate spending time on related issues that are core to this one. Keegan 08:13, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

    The points from it.wikiquote apply for all articles on every subject. --Nemo 09:48, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
    One thing is missing with the it.wikiquote points: There may be sources that are reliable but not widely spread. For example, we have had an entry in de.wikiquote from a politician, who was apparently a little drunk and spoke some strange, funny sentences into the camera of an television team from turkey. This interview was probably never aired in Germany, however somebody there had taped it (privately), too and uploaded it to youtube. The source was somewhat reliable (it was easy to identify the politician), but the quote was not published by anyone else. Such quotes my damage the reputation of persons. We removed it, because we require for politicians that quotes are somewhat spread and published by several publishers. My suggestion is to require this at least for all quotes that might damage one persons reputation or impact their rights of personality.
    But I think it is very good that it.wikipedia has adapted the requirements. At de.wikipedia, quotations often lack a reliable and useable source. --Hei ber
