The material that was moved to Mande languages but really belongs here is back. — mark 10:17, 15 August 2005 (UTC)

Mandinka people?[edit]

Is there any overlap between this article and Mandinka people? --Joy [shallot] 19:14, 28 August 2005 (UTC)

Well I'd expect some, because the Mandinka are a one of the Mandé peoples. But upon reading Mandinka people, I think that much of it belongs here in Mandé rather than there; as far as I know, Mandinka is the specific name for the Mandé branch in Senegal. Good catch! — mark 06:48, 29 August 2005 (UTC)

question[edit]

If the Mande were in Mauritania and came from the Central Sahara does the following make sense? Between 200 BC and 100 AD, the entire Sudan experienced significant dry episodes, which were part of the general drying trend that had been seriously underway since before 2000 BC. As the desert began to expand, the population headed South.Itzcoatl 17:35, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Sanw1.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Sanw1.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Orphaned references in Mandé peoples[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Mandé peoples's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "Bird":

  • From Fadenya: Bird, Charles and Kendall, Martha (1980). "The Mande Hero" Explorations in African Systems of Thought (13-26)
  • From Chad: "Important Bird Areas in Africa and associated islands – Chad" (pdf). Birdlife International Organization. Retrieved 16 October 2013.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 20:28, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
