thank you for this welcome, I happen to be french native and french wikipedian but I enjoy travelling through other worlds of wikifans. Meybe you could help me fixing this ISBN trouble, I put the right <ISBN references but for some reason there is an error message which I do not understand yet ? Otherwise feel free to ask for any contribution that you might appreciate and thanks again.. --Odilebe (talk) 10:02, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Hello! I had a look at the article but I am unable to figure out myself what is wrong with it as you have added the ISBN correctly in my oppinion. I am sure someone else would be able to fix it up! Sorry. :(
Good on you for creating articles from French Wikipedia to here, we more than welcome that if the articles are considered notable! There is a whole page dedicated to doing just that if you wanted to help out I can give you the link? Cheers!Calaka (talk) 10:16, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Feel free to send me this link and I will try to do my best to help out especially on matter related to painters and painting, gastronomy (we are quite good here on this matter) and french litterature. bye now --Odilebe (talk) 11:07, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Great to hear! Here it is: Wikipedia:WikiProject_Missing_encyclopedic_articles/fr It used to have a big chunk of thousands of French communes but apparently they are all created now. I am not sure what that list consists of (since I can't read French) but hopefully there should be things in re: painters/painting (many great works of art are actually missing on Wikipedia - only recently many paintings are getting the due articles they deserve!) Kind regards.Calaka (talk) 12:33, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Problems with ISBN[edit]

{{help}} , I do not understand why the ISBN references mentioned in the article I created about Michel Trinquier are not correct, could some one give me an help? --Odilebe (talk) 12:29, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

The template {{ISBN}} is misleading probably. It creates the message that ISBNs are missing, not adds them. You can just add "ISBN 1234567890" to an article and it's converted automatically. I took the liberty of fixing the article for you and used the {{cite book}} template which allows adding multiple parameters and details. Regards SoWhy 13:57, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
