An editor is garnering support for advancing the article Dixie_(song) to GA. Since the article contains a lot of what would be of interest to this group (for example, different points of view of how to regard the song today in the section "Modern interpretations"), I thought it would be of interest to members of the project. - kosboot (talk) 23:41, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Malta locator map[edit]

Can anyone take a look at Talk:Malta#Terrible map. I'd think it's a no-brainer that a locator map of Malta should be centered on Malta and not Denmark, cutting Africa out almost completely. Apparently a literally Eurocentric map is a "Wikipedia standard"? I'm baffled by this. --Dennis Bratland (talk) 23:11, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Article of Malta use standard European map (used in thirty articles), centered in the center of Europe - to show the whole of Europe on map - this is a logical. It does not matter whether the state lies in the northern or southern or western or eastern part of Europe, map is correct and show all states of Europe. Everything is good and logical. Malta is European country (only European), Wikipedia not use maps of Asia, Africa, Australia etc for show European countries. User Dennis Bratland try push own map - only half of Europe and... Africa! Totally nonsense. Subtropical-man talk

Subtropical-man is wrong. It is not "a logical" to insist on using a European map to show the location of Malta, if that map is centred far from Malta and does not make Malta's position or geography clear. We can find a better map. bobrayner (talk) 19:09, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
Comments should be at Talk:Malta#Which_map_should_we_use_in_main_infobox.3F because they are just wasted here inasmuch as the closing editor will not see them. BeenAroundAWhile (talk) 21:19, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Announcing the Wikiproject Cross-language Editing and Learning Exchange[edit]

Hi all! Inspired in part by a conversation here last fall[1] about making Wikipedia more welcoming for second-language editors, I have started a new Wikiproject, the Cross-language Editing and Learning Exchange, for editors to assist each other in writing for Wikipedia in a second language. If this interests you, I urge you to sign up and start participating; we need a critical mass for the project to be effective. Tdslk (talk) 22:28, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
