Austrians still have a beef, because they lost it. There's Laibach somewhere on A10 or A11 (or used to be anyhow).

At least at newer signs in Styria, e.g. the ones at Interchange Graz-West only say "Maribor SLO", so I think Maribor/Marburg will be gone sooner or later.
As for Carinthia, now that it seems they are going to find a compromise at the "Ortstafelstreit" (dispute about bilingual German/Slovenian village entrance signs, which nobody outside of Carinthia is able to understand) maybe the stupid "Slowenien" and "Italien" will be gone in future, too. At least it makes me hope.

This sign is, as nearly always in Austria overloaded with information. I can't see any sense in all those country ovals....
It should be more like this IMO

You put Graz on the wrong side and you can cancel Wien.To sign Slovakia and Hungary in Salzburg is realy too early.How you do that?I wanna make signs

I made that sign with PowerPoint, marked all the objects and saved it as an image.

Ok, I forgot that they sign Graz via A1 now, anyway I'd rather like an expressway connection Radstadt-Liezen, so maybe that's why I made it wrong

Yeah,its not necessary to drive to Wels when you go to Graz from Salzburg and if you drive a Motorcycle you choose anyway a nice beautiful mountain road.The Tauern road is big enough,you can drive 120km/h

Just to be clear, I like the ovals but only where they are senseful (from that point a foreign town is signed)

agree. I like ovals as well, but only when they have purpose.

Maybe SK and H are too much since there's Vienna on the way, but CZ, SLO and I (Italy, not me) make sense IMO.

The motorway juction at Salzburg is certainly very important, so there are large signes....Anyway - from the direction Wien/Linz (A1), there are TR, GR as well (not only I or SLO!). Currently the recommended route to Graz is the northern motorway-route (from Salzburg) via A1 and A9 (no more via Ennstal - B320).
Anyway, there was an additional sign with TR, RO, SRB etc. at the juction A1/A21 /the previous collection contains the nice picture from that place as well/. It might already have been displaced....Austrians like propably those countries ovals marks and the Austrian role in the internatinal traffic is stressed by using of them.

Because Villach is so terribly huge that everyone knows it. Fact is that the two largest Slovenian cities are in different directions, so you have to point it out somehow. And that is by signing SLO in both directions and adding Ljubljana (with smaller fonts) for A10, so you know, which SLO to follow to get there (however signing Maribor by Salzburg would be over the top, hence just SLO).

it would be than better to write either Ljubljana and Maribor on different signs, or just to ignore both of them. This halfway-inconsistent solution is just stupid.
What if I wanna go to Celje is it SLO or Ljubljana SLO (i know but just hypothetically) I think that if someone travels to Maribor he knows that he firste has to come to Graz, and if someone travels to Ljubljana he knows that he first has to come to Villach.

It's a logical solution and you can't just ignore Slovenia, particularly since ovals are widely used in Austria.

Maybe it is logical to you, but not to me. Inconsistency can not be logical.
BTW we can debate it when looking at the photo from our homes, but just imagine when doing 130 on the motorway.... you got my point.

That's like asking how to get from Ljubljana to Innsbruck since only Graz and Villach are signed.

No your "explanation" was more like "I have no clue but I still want to get to 15k posts"
BTW you accidentally left out the part that followed.
