April 2008[edit]


Hi, the recent edit you made to France has been reverted, as it appears to be unconstructive. Use the sandbox for testing; if you believe the edit was constructive, ensure that you provide an informative edit summary. You may also wish to read the introduction to editing. Thanks. weburiedoursecretsinthegarden 18:04, 4 April 2008 (UTC)


It was discussed already that the gallery section of the article was not to be included. Please do not keep restoring it. Wilhelmina Will (talk) 02:26, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi Ursutraide - basically Wikipedia is not a gallery. There are plenty images inline in the article. See also Wikipedia:What Wikipedia is not#>Wikipedia is not a mirror or a repository of links, images, or media files. I'll leave you to remove the images, thanks/wangi (talk) 20:56, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

New Mexico name and language[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia. Although everyone is welcome to make constructive contributions to Wikipedia, at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to New Mexico, did not appear to be constructive and has been removed. Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and read the welcome page to learn more about contributing constructively to this encyclopedia. Please do not change the name or the official language. This has already been discussed on the talk page and a consensus reached. If you want to open the discussion again please do so on the talk page. Thank you. --Uncia (talk) 17:37, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

List of languages by number of native speakers[edit]

I think you may be misunderstand this article and the columns. The grid is set up to give 2 main sources in the first 2 columns and additional sources for other estimates in the far right column. The first column is to show what the most recent Ethonologue estimates are. This does not mean that they are the most correct; many may be outdated, but they are the Ethnologue estimates from the 15th edition. If you look at the Spanish, English, and Portuguese estimates, they are most likely not correct, but that's why there are three columns and why you can sort by the Encarta column as well. The far right column gives a source for French that states another estimate of 113 million native speakers. Please see talk page because there were several discussions regarding this, and the consensus before I even started editing was that the columns were for specific information so people could see the different estimates. Thanks. Kman543210 (talk) 12:34, 30 October 2008 (UTC)


Please do not accuse others of vandalism when they are clearly not vandals. There is absolutely no need to have both maps there, so why are you repeatedly adding them? The Red Hat of Pat Ferrick t 18:09, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
