Unsourced section regarding effects of nuclear testing[edit]

I've commented out a large section from the History section of the article, pending citation or sourcing, either here or in the article itself. Tomertalk 00:44, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

Conseil du Scoutisme polynésien[edit]

Can someone render "Conseil du Scoutisme polynésien" and "Be Prepared", the Scout Motto, into Tahitian? Thanks! Chris 14:48, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

User ty[edit]

I have looked at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Wikipedians_by_language . It would appear that there are no templates like

ty Tēnā vitipetia ta’ata i vetahi mau parau i te reo Tahiti paraparau.
These users speak Tahitian.

, Template:User ty-3 for Tahitian. :( Chris 06:53, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

'Effects of French nuclear testing on the Gambiers' section[edit]

I put the section as being of questionable neutrality and fact because of the unverifiable nature of the allegations made, and their semblances to suggestions of a conspiracy. Wikipedia deals in fact, and this section gives a lot of hearsay and speculation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 205.250.40.87 (talk) 08:16, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

I'm the person who put that information into the article. Please consider keeping this information. I personally witnessed the facts described. I am not drawing conclusions from those facts, which would be conspiracy theory. Normally, only mainstream media should be sourced for facts on Wikipedia. But the French Government has controlled most access to this island for a long time. The only ways to get to this island are via a national freight/cargo ship, a national air flight or by private yacht. As a result, mainstream media is generally unable to even visit the place. Where possible, I have clearly cited mainstream media to corroborate what I learned while living there for 7 months. Please contact me before removing the information or discuss on this page so that we can find a way to make sure that the significant information is represented.
