"Owned Hard"[edit]

"Famous adages from roman times:

   * Ad altentium fur mein: Owned and owned hard."

What does "Owned and owned hard" mean? Is this a joke? --219.89.33.39 15:06, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

for the accuracy , to help french users or other people willing to learn it and not to misunderstand the word Adage with Proverbe ; the french link should point to : http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adage or http://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/adage . Words are like animals and plants they tend to desapear from a language nowadays. I mean this word is not much used ; and leaving the link as it is helps the extinction .

when you type a search in the //fr.wikipedia.org for adage you are redirected to http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adage and not http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proverbe .

also you can notice that the persons who edited,forged the french page for the word proverbe forgot in her/his list the word adage.

Examples in article and examples section.[edit]

Does it seem odd to anyone else that there are 2 examples in the main body of the article, and then there is another examples section with further examples? To me it would make more sense to either:

  • Only have examples in the main body of the article
  • Only have examples in the example section
  • Include some examples in the main body of the article and include a more comprehensive list at the end.

Personally I prefer that last option but how many would be listed? will there be so many that the article will be too long? Hintswen  Talk | Contribs  05:37, 19 January 2010 (UTC)
