hipster[edit]

Hi Gronky,

your probably right that German Trendsetter and English hipster are not exactly the same, however the meaning of Trendsetter matches perfectly the English definition of hipster, so Iǘe undone your edit. If you feel that this is wrong, then you should probably think about improving the definition at hipster.Matthias Buchmeier (talk) 18:38, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Hi,
Can you tell me where you read a definition of en:hipster that matches de:Trendsetter?
The definition of Trendsetter on German Wiktionary says someone who causes/unleashes new fashions. And I presume that's correct since that's what the English trend setter means.
The definition here of hipster is someone who follows fashions. That's almost the opposite. One's a leader, the other's a sheep.
So it seems clear that my edit was correct. Do you have different definitions of these words?
(P.S. The wordlist dictionaries on your user page are a great idea.) Gronky (talk) 00:08, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
My thought was that someone keenly interested in the latest trends would adopt the trends that he likes best and thus ultimately set the trend of the broader masses. But if you look at the
Wikipedia has an article on:
Hipster

Wikipedia articles then hipster refers rather to some special kind of subculture and not about fashion devotees in general.Matthias Buchmeier (talk) 21:34, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
