Errors on the French Wikipedia[edit]

I was just looking at the Nunavut and Liste des communautés au Nunavut and noticed that there were several errors.

The Inuit names for the following places are not the official names. A list of official names can be found here, although the spelling of Igloolik is odd.

The "Liste des communautés au Nunavut" has a link to Inuits Netsilik but they are a group of people rather than a community. Amadjuak, Amadjuak, Nunavut, should probably say that it's a former community. The problem is that I don't speak French and I can't log in due to someone using my username for vandalism prior to the unified login system. Thanks. The highly esteemed CBW presents the Talk Page! 09:22, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Thanks you for the info, I'll make the changes. Amqui (talk) 17:20, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
I'm not sure english names are more official than inuktitut ones. Inuktitut is an official language of Nunavut. Amqui (talk) 21:41, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Reference for CFB Edmonton[edit]

Hi, Sorry, but I had to undo your edit to this article, which was to add a reference. Thanks for trying to add the reference, but the DND took the info from the CFB Edmonton article for their own history of the base, almost verbatim. So, obviously it can't be used as a reference source. Sort of a chicken-egg situation. See the talk page for this article for more info. I'm sure this will be happening more frequently as other web sites "steal" information from Wikipedia articles. I know they took it, since I originally wrote this part of the article, and it was before the DND had their CFB Edmonton history page up and running (see edit history, Nov 22, 2006). I should have added my references at the time, but I was relatively new with Wikipedia and did not think to do it. I may be able to find the "real" source I used; if I do, I'll be sure to add it in. There is no way that you would have known, and I'm sure this will happen again. Cheers!-- BC  talk to me 06:00, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the info, but I already used this website for BFC Edmonton. If they took your text from wiki to put it there, I can assume that's because your text is true... Amqui (talk) 16:33, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
I wouldn't think they did a whole lot of checking; I am assuming they just grabbed it assuming it was accurate (probably some lazy government bureaucrat decided that stealing a WP artiicle is easier than doing his own research). I double checked some of the information, and the sites I used seemed reliable as sources. I'm still going to check my reference for the information that needs to be cited. When I find it we can use that for the French article. BC  talk to me 19:01, 27 October 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your help in correcting my title on my article.

Je vous remercie beaucoup pour votre aide rapide sur le titre de mon article.

I had to use a translator for the above sentence - hope it is correct.

You are the best. Your fast response is greatly appreciated.

April - National Contribution Month[edit]

Good day Amqui,

During the month of April, Wikimedia Canada is preparing the National Contribution Month, and we are looking for experienced contributors to organize a contribution day (or half-day) in their region.

Contribution days are activities where Wikipedia's contributors, students, or anybody interested in contributing to Wikipedia meets together to collectively improve a predetermined theme. This meetings generally take place in library where references are easy of access, but can be organized in any communal room. Beside improving articles, a goal of this participatory workshops is to initiate neophyte in the cooperative contribution of Wikipedia.

If you are interested in organizing or participating in a contribution day in your region, communicate witht he national team on the project's talk page. The exact agenda of each local event is left to the discretion of the organizer. Help is available for the organization from contributors who already organized these type of days, so don't be worried. If you have any questions or want more information, don't hesitate to contact us.

Discussion of WikiProject Endangered languages at Signpost[edit]

There's a discussion of WikiProject Endangered languages going on over at Wikipedia Signpost News and Notes. Djembayz (talk) 01:57, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Please join WP:IPNA[edit]

Came across you on a talkpage for someone who'd edited Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation, saw you're not in WP:IPNA members listing; we've begun discussions towards a set of proper indigenous article/title wiki-guidelines because of various problems with non-indigenous input/guideline-citing by non-native/non-IPNA folks (I'm not native myself but I've been busy with organizing/citing IPNA articles since I joined Wikipedia).Skookum1 (talk) 08:05, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

for showing up at Talk:Cahokia and getting involved with some good,positive suggestions as to what to do next. The dialog that was happening seemed to be at one of those balance points where it was either going to turn good or bad and I believe that your input might have tipped it towards the former. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 21:35, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your comment, I'm happy to see you think like that, I hesitated before posting it because it wasn't directly related with the article where the talk page is, but the importance of the message made me posting it. Hopefully it won't be interpreted like we try to push Indigenous peoples' opinions away from the English Wikipedia, because this is far from my intent. I guess we should copy it and continue the discussion on the project talk page though. Thank you again, Amqui (talk) 21:40, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
The whole discussion taking place really had very little, if anything, to do with the article in question. I doubt very many native people support the statement that no human sacrifice or ritual torture occurred in N or S America. I was trying to decide if that editor was in fact a troll just trying to stir up trouble. Then you arrived, presented a nice way to move on from where we were that involved no loss of face for anyone. From the start wikipedia has been edited largely by male, white Americans and that is a group that often comes with a lot of baggage, a fair amount of which shows up in various places. That profile is changing and change can be difficult on all sorts of people. Viva Change. Carptrash (talk) 22:31, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Chronologie de l'histoire de l'Alberta[edit]


Est-ce que vous êtes pas au courant qu'un des utilisateurs Paul.schrepfer a crée une page de la Chronologie de l'histoire de l'Alberta et a crée beaucoup des pages des années de votre province, si vous voulez visite et pour vous ajouter quelque chose et peut-être d'avoir plus de sources que possible. J'ai crée la page 1905 en Alberta et j'ai ajouter quelque personnalités franco-albertain, quelque événements dans la page 1982 en Alberta et un premier événement de la page de 1983 en Alberta. Alors si vous voulez visite, vous pouvez envoyez un message sur ma discussion sur Wikipédia francophone à propos de ce sujet. Aussi j'ai crée un Wiki Mona le vampire si vous avez déjà entendue parle d'un personnage de mon enfance, si quelqu'un et des enfants connaissez, car j'ai ajouter ce message si vous voulez visite que ce wiki est consacré à propos de la série et des livres de Mona le Vampire. Thanks (merci) User: (d) 30 june 2014 (UTC)

Pronunciation of Causapscal[edit]

Hello again, Amqui! I'm just looking for a clarification re: the pronunciation of "Causapscal." Is it said "ceau-sap-scale" (phonetic French) or "co-pascal?" I was talking about it with a friend and he was convinced it was the latter. - Sweet Nightmares 01:41, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

It's the first one, but it's "keau-zap-scale", a "s" between 2 vowels is pronunced like a "z" in French (and your "ceau" doesn't work either, because a "c" in front of a "e" is pronunced like a "s" in French instead of like a "k" like when it's in front of a "a", "e" is a soft vowel while "a" is a hard vowel). Amqui (talk) 02:11, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Great, thank you. As for "Amqui," does it make the "qu" sound as in "quick" or is it a K sound as in Québec? Intuition tells me it's the latter, but my friend says it's the former, since it's an Amerindian name. - Sweet Nightmares 20:23, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
It's the former, pronunce it like you would in English. It doesn't follow French pronunciation. If you want another "weird" one go see Sayabec (which I made a GA on fr.wp), it's pronunced "say-bek" (as in English), middle a is completly omitted. Amqui (talk) 21:32, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Interesting! I've added the IPA transcription to all three articles (+Causapscal Lake). - Sweet Nightmares 21:58, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Feature – Ebola articles[edit]

Electron micrograph of an Ebola virus virion

During August we have translated Disease and it is now live in more than 60 different languages! To help us focus on African languages Rubric has donated a large number of articles in languages we haven't previously reached–so a shout out them, and Ian Henderson from Rubric who's joined us here at Wikipedia. We're very happy for our continued collaboration with both Rubric and Translators without Borders!

Just some of our over 60 translations:
New roles and guides!

At Wikimania there were so many enthusiastic people jumping at the chance to help out the Medical Translation Project, but unfortunately not all of them knew how to get started. That is why we've been spending considerable time writing and improving guides! They are finally live, and you can find them at our home-page!

New sign up page!

We're proud to announce a new sign up page at WP:MTSIGNUP! The old page was getting cluttered and didn't allow you to speficy a role. The new page should be easier to sign up to, and easier to navigate so that we can reach you when you're needed!

Style guides for translations

Translations are of both full articles and shorter articles continues. The process where short articles are chosen for translation hasn't been fully transparent. In the coming months we hope to have a first guide, so that anyone who writes medical or health articles knows how to get their articles to a standard where they can be translated! That's why we're currently working on medical good lede criteria! The idea is to have a similar peer review process to good article nominations, but only for ledes.

New sign-up page for the Medical Translation Project[edit]


This is a friendly reminder that the sign-up page at the Medical Translation Project (previously Translation Task force) has been updated. This means everyone has to sign up again. Using the new page it will be easier for us to get into contact with you when there is work available. Please check out our progress pages now! There might be work there already for you.

We are also very proud to introduce new roles and guides which allows people to help who don't have medical knowledge too!

Here are ways you can help!
Community organization
We need involved Wikipedians to engage the community on the different Wikipedias, and to spread the word!
Assessing content
We need language knowledgeable Wikipedians (or not yet Wikipedians) who indicate on our progress tables which articles should and should not be translated!
We are always on the look-out for dedicated translators to work with our content, especially in smaller languages!
Translated articles need to be integrated into local Wikipedias. This process is done manually, and needs to take merge or replace older articles.
Template installation
For translations to be more useful templates and modules should be installed. We need people with the technical know-how who can help out!
Several of our processes are in need of simplification and many could occur automatically with bots.

Please use the sign up page, and thank you guys for all the work you've been doing. The translation project wouldn't be possible without you!
