Seeking your help to translate from English
Hello my fellow Wikipedian,
Thanks for taking your time off to help hapless Wikipedians and otherwise stucked-up articles find their way to the forefront of other non-English speaking readers. I would hope that I have approached you the right way.
Nonetheless, I humbly seek your intervention to translate the following pages from English to your native tongue, since I gathered that it may mean something to Wiki readers in other languages.
Thanks in anticipation for facilitating this request.
- Hello there. I am fairly busy with other projects right now, but I might consider translating these articles for the German language Wikipedia. The Ten Letters to Obama, however, will first have to survive the deletion discussion. De728631 (talk) 16:30, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
Bizarre German coming and going
Did you look at the prose in Die Sage von der Seerose? especially the last paragraph? I really hope the editor has someone else translate it before they upload it on de.
That brings me to something that is on de: in de:Andreas Borum, what do you make of "Unter den Mitinhabern des 'lithographisch-artistischen' Institut der Gebr. Kehr, auch unter Gebr. Kehr & Niessen in der Literatur erwähnt, den Lithographen Carl Kehr in Köln sowie seinem Bruder Johann Philipp Kehr (* 1800 in Bad Kreuznach) war er neben D. Leon, Eduard Gerhardt und Bonaventura Weiß (* 1812) von 1835 bis 1839 als Mitarbeiter tätig."? I cannot figure out the syntactic relationship of "den Lithographen Carl Kehr in Köln sowie seinem Bruder Johann Philipp Kehr" to anything else or really frankly of the accusative brother to the dative brother. I made a dogged attempt to wrestle meaning out of it at Andreas Borum, which Drmies started yesterday. Yngvadottir (talk) 18:08, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
- Umm, I didn't even read Die Sage von der Seerose in detail but I seem to remember that it looked weird compared to the English article. Now as to the Kehr brothers and Andreas Borum, this is one of the encapsulated sentences Kleist would have loved. The accusative in "den Lithographen Carl Kehr in Köln sowie seinem Bruder Johann Philipp Kehr" refers to the owners of the institution, and you'd better shuffle the parts around for an English tranlation. I.e. "Together with D. Leon, Gerhardt and Weiß he was employed under the management of the co-owners of the lithographical-artistical institute ..., namely the lithographers Carl Kehr of Cologne and his brother Johann."

- My attempt wasn't far off that: "From 1835 to 1839 he was employed together with D. Leon, Eduard Gerhardt and Bonaventura Weiß (born 1812) at the "lithographic-artistic" institute of the Kehr brothers, sometimes called Kehr & Niessen, which was founded in Cologne by the lithographer Carl Kehr and his brother Johann Philipp Kehr (born 1800 in Bad Kreuznach)." I'm still not sure about the dative brother :-) Yngvadottir (talk) 16:03, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
Pedophelia and Sex Trafficking issue
You have decided to make unconstructive deletions to prevent the discussion of an important topic. This topic is pedophilia and sex tourism in Cambodia, and bias against anti-sex slavery advocates. You've taken action to delete this comment and prevent it from being even discussed. You claimed that this is an "unconstructive edit" and yet it not even a edit to an article. Furthermore, there is nothing unconstructive about it. If you want to make a comment about it, you can do so on the talk page. Wikipedia operate by consensus, so deleting the comment was not appropriate.18.104.22.168 (talk) 13:06, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
- You have been told by several editors that the Wikipedia Village Pump was not the proper place to discuss your concerns about a specific article, but you kept restoring the section. That is what we call disruptive. We're not trying to prevent any discussion about an article but there there are certain place for this to do at Wikipedia, and surely the Village Pump is not one of them. If you would like to discuss the deletion of an article, please see WP:Deletion review. For issues about the content of an existing article please use the talk page of that article, but note also that Wikipedia is not general forum. De728631 (talk) 13:21, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
Deletions at the village pump

Revdel at User:Fête dans la vie
Thanks for deleting the revisions. But revision 648707408 is still public (and a copyright violation). Or is it not possible to delete the first revision without some extra work? Anon126 (notify me of responses! / talk / contribs) 21:00, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
- Ah, it seems I forgot this one, but it does contain verses by Festin. So now I've zapped it, too. Thank you for the reminder. De728631 (talk) 15:24, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
On the article Tolkien family, Twitter has been used a source. I don't think it can be used a source. I think it should be removed from the article. One more thing I'll like to ask is whether the website http://www.theonering.net/ can be used a source. KahnJohn27 (talk) 10:28, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
