Improvements / to-do[edit]

Did some work to the article just now. To-do:

  1. It looks like the same article over on the French WP has a lot we could draw from.
  2. The "Themes" section as I left it is pretty negligible. Desperately needs expansion, even if it means pulling text from one of the articles on the Enlightenment and connecting them to specific passages in the Supplement.
  3. More references. I added the two from McDonald and the Gutenberg link, and have more I'll add as I come across them, but there's a lot out there that could help.

Article title[edit]

Earlier today Soham321 moved this article from Supplément au voyage de Bougainville to Addendum to the Journey of Bougainville. There is a discussion about this in the context of guidelines for article titles at User talk:Ritchie333/Archive 30#Help Needed. At the risk of starting a parallel thread, it seems appropriate to document here as well. As the other thread is also more general rather than specific to this article, this seems the better place to discuss what should be done with the title of this article.

My position is that the article is most appropriately titled in the original French per WP:ENGLISH as the majority of English language sources I've found call it Supplément au voyage de Bougainville and those that do use a translation do not agree on the precise wording (although the fact that the French is more common to begin with makes the details of the translation unimportant for our purposes). — Rhododendrites talk \\ 15:29, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

This is a relevant note of mine, with respect to the above, on Richie's talk page: Soham comment and this was Ritchie's reply to my comment: Ritchie response Soham321 (talk) 15:50, 11 September 2015 (UTC) And i made a slight correction to my original comment: Soham Correction Soham321 (talk) 15:58, 11 September 2015 (UTC)
@Soham321: Following up. While La Religieuse is sort of a close call, I don't think this one is. Would you mind undoing the move and, if you still feel this one makes sense (short of a determination that applies to all titles), start a requested move? — Rhododendrites talk \\ 13:32, 13 September 2015 (UTC)
Rhododendrites,Let's wait till the dispute over La Religieuse is sorted out. I was going to do a Requested move on Le Fils naturel and also Le Père de famille (to their english titles) depending on the decision of what happens to La Religieuse. We can discuss this page also, through a Requested Move, at that time. Soham321 (talk) 13:55, 13 September 2015 (UTC)
Works for me. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 13:58, 13 September 2015 (UTC)
Per the discussion here and at Talk:La Religieuse, there doesn't look to be any consensus for broad action. I'd encourage you to continue the case-by-case approach, but pending a successful RfM, I've moved this one back to its original title. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 17:12, 28 September 2015 (UTC)
