Argentine currency[edit]

Thanks for your work on Argentine currencies. Having added the article Argentine peso moneda corriente, I wonder if you would mind completing the job by starting the article Argentine peso fuerte?

National Route A003 (Argentina)[edit]

Thanks for the info. You did a great job in the Roads section. I am only building on your work by translating and posting in en:WP. Well done! -- Alexf(t/c) 12:15, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Argentine peso moneda nacional[edit]

I just realized you started the excellent Argentine peso moneda nacional. Congrats! You may want to know I added some missing paper notes from my own collection, including the more rare $500 "San Martin joven". You may want to Interwiki them to es:WP (images are in Commons). Also added missing images (all I have, not complete) to Argentine austral -- Alexf(t/c) 12:30, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Argentine Railway Companies[edit]

Keep up your translations into Spanish of my articles in English on Argentine Railway Companies, you're doing a great job! I still have quite a few companies left to document. Feel free to use my template to navigate the articles in Spanish. David(TalkContribs) 13:06, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

I agree that the wording of the article Santa Fe Western Railway suggests that it might not have been British-owned until it was taken over by the Central. I've not had much to do with the writing of this article but according to: Colin M. Lewis, British Railways in Argentina 1857-1914: A Case Study of Foreign Investment, Athlone Press (for the Institute of Latin American Studies, University of London), 1983. it was British-owned, so I suggest we leave it in the template for the time being while I do some futher research to confirm the ownership. Many thanks for pointing this out. Best regards David(TalkContribs) 10:10, 1 September 2007 (UTC)


Podrías dar una mirada por si acaso (sobre todo en el artículo de pruebas de primalidad y el de número primo): [1] y [2]. Nota también que la de.wikipedia sí lo tiene bajo el nombre correcto. -- m:drini 00:14, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Wikimedia Stories Project[edit]


My name is Victor and I work with the Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organization that supports Wikipedia. We're chronicling the inspiring stories of the Wikipedia community around the world, including those from readers, editors, and donors. Stories are absolutely essential for any non-profit to persuade new people to support the cause, and we know the vast network of people who use Wikipedia have so much to share.

I find stories that drive our annual fundraising efforts. It's important to convey the incredible diversity of people who've come to rely upon Wikipedia every day.

I'd really like the opportunity to interview you to tell your story, with the possibility of using it in our materials, on our community websites, or as part of this year’s fundraiser to encourage others to support Wikipedia.

I will be in Buenos Aires from the 10th - 11th of March 2012.

I'm hoping you will elaborate on your story with me. Please let me know if you're inclined to take part in the Wikipedia Stories Project!

Thank you,

Victor Grigas

Article for Spanish Wikipedia[edit]

Hi, Alpertron. A while back I wrote an article on Japanese composer Minako Hamano which was deleted from the English Wikipedia as "unexpandable." Lest the research go to waste, I'd like to add the information to her entry in other language Wikipedias, but my language skills suck. I've made up a Spanish machine translation in my sandbox. Could you have look at it and help me tidy up? Pkeets (talk) 00:39, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

So you think no one should contribute to the Spanish article because it's predetermined to be deleted? It's been in place since 2009. Pkeets (talk) 19:47, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Argentine Exchange rates[edit]

Hi. I am writing a paper on the history of Argentina's exchange rate system, and wanted to know where you got your quotes for the historical table on the currency.

I can be reached at

Historical Exchange Rate Argentina Currency[edit]


I'm currently investigating a couple of sources for historic exchange rates in Argentina. However, I was browsing through your Source of the "Banco Central de la República Argentina" and couldn't find matching exchange rate for the Australes and $US.

Could you maybe provide a more sufficient link for your data? Everything I have found was the: "Evolucion de una Moneda". However, I wasn't able to retrieve the data you present in the article.

Your help would be really appreciated.

With best regards
