Copyright question[edit]

Possible Copyright violation see http://www.worldrover.com/history/burkina_faso_history.html Are "U.S. State Department Background Notes 1998" public domain ?

Yes, these notes are in the public domian. These notes have seeded many of the national history articles at Wikipedia. LarryQ 11:57, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

President "Editing"?[edit]

It reads : President "Editing" Felix Houphouët-Boigny. Is that an error?

2011 uprising[edit]

News reports tend to be very unclear but there is some sore sort of protests/uprising/revolt/revolution going on in Burkina Faso right now, including a curfew on Ouagadougou and some reports that Blaise Compaore has fled. How about an article, 2011 Burkina Faso uprising, based on the French version or its translation here Metaknowledge (talk) 14:32, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

  • http://www.historyofnations.net/africa/burkinafaso.html
    Triggered by \bhistoryofnations\.net\b on the local blacklist

Dead external link[edit]

The link "History of Burkina Faso (English version)" is leading to a page on the Oxfam website that no longer exists. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.85.251.49 (talk) 06:25, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
