German, Sie and wir imparatives of sein[edit]

I noticed that this article is missing the Sie and wir imperatives of Sie, but I do not see a way to add them to the chart, I was wondering if there is a way to rectify this omission. —This unsigned comment was added by 76.20.52.24 (talk).

Yes, the conjugation template doesn't have a slot for those imperatives, presumably because the imperative for wir and Sie is almost always the same as the present tense. So, I just now noted the irregularity in a text note below the conjugation table. —Rod (A. Smith) 18:09, 2 May 2011 (UTC)
That's fine of course. But there's actually no irregularity there. These imperatives are subjunctive forms in all verbs including sein. Most grammars even call them "Optativ" instead of imperative.Kolmiel (talk) 09:26, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
