Hello and thank you[edit]

Hello Veillg1 - yesterday I copy-edited an article you started here on this project about Lake Missionary. Thanks very much for translating it from French Wikipedia. I see that you have made several translations this year, and they are all appreciated. I enjoyed working on the Missionary Lake article, and would be very happy to do some copy-editing on other articles you have translated. It is my plan over the coming months to check your contributions here and do this copy-editing. I wanted to let you know about this before I start so that you would not feel I was trying to interfere with your work.

If you have any questions or thoughts, please let me know on my talk page. It is very nice to have this set of articles about such a beautiful and important part of Québec. Risker (talk) 15:08, 15 November 2013 (UTC)

I wanted to let you know that, now that I have completed a different longterm project, I have now started work on copy-editing articles related to the Mauricie. If you have any particular articles you would like me to work on, please let me know. In the meantime, I will start with this list. One quick note: When researching the article initially named "Lordship of Triton", I did a bit of research, and everything in both English and French that I could find referred to it as "La Seigneurie du Triton", so I have moved the article. The word "seigneurie" is not an easy translation from French to English, but the word Manor comes closest; however, I could not find any sources that use that term.

Thank you again for all of the work you have done in translating and transferring these articles from French Wikipedia. Risker (talk) 03:33, 13 January 2014 (UTC)


Nomination of Bostonnais for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Bostonnais is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Bostonnais until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. P 1 9 9   01:02, 25 December 2013 (UTC)

Please note that Wikipedia does not create disambiguation pages to comprehensively list every single article that has a given word in its title, as you did at Bostonnais; we create disambiguation pages only to direct readers to the correct choice among pages that could potentially compete for the same title. That is, the only reason for Bostonnais to exist as a disambiguation page would be if there were two or more pages that could potentially be placed at the exact title "Bostonnais" — but according to our actual naming conventions, there are none and the page is thus not necessary or valuable at all.

Disambiguation[edit]

Hello, I have taken notice of your edits on multiple disambiguation pages. From your editing style, I could see you come from French Wikipedia where the governance of such pages is completely different (not to say almost absent).

English Wikipedia on the contrary uses a strict set of guidelines for disambiguation pages. Can I ask you to have a look at WP:DDD for a short summary.

In short, could you make sure:

  • Only to include ONE, and exactly one blue link per line. So only one item per entry should be linked with a blue link.
  • Do not pipe entries on dab pages.
  • Please do not use the keyword homonymy nor create redirects called Foo (homonymy). That keyword is not being used on WP.EN. We use disambiguation and explicit redirects to dab pages are called Foo (disambiguation). So don't use it in hatnotes such as {{For|homonymy|Foo (disambiguation)}}. So either replace the word homonymy with something more descriptive, or easier, use the {{other}} template.

Thank you for your consideration. --Midas02 (talk) 09:16, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

East River[edit]

Yes, there are indeed other East Rivers in the world, and we even have an article on at least one of them, but, practically speaking, the East River in New York City is the best known, and therefore the primary subject of that phrase. If you disagree, please open a discussion on Talk:East River. You'll find instructions for how to open a Request Move (RM) discussion on WP:RM. Thanks.

List of rivers of Quebec[edit]

Bonjour Gaétan, je travaille à la création d'un tableau des affluents et sous-affluents de la rivière l'Assomption en utilisant la liste des rivières du Québec. J'ai remarqué que les cours d'eau y sont classés à partir de la confluence principale selon leur confluence rive droite puis rive gauche. Dans le tableau j'ai classé les confluences rive gauche en ordre inverse de leur confluence afin de créer une boucle pour chacun des sous-affluents. Ainsi, lorsqu'on suit la séquence on fait le tour des sous-bassins et du bassin principale, à partir de la confluence principale, de la rive droite vers la rive gauche pour finalement revenir à la confluence principale. Qu'en penses-tu ? --YB 12:51, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Boleyn (talk) 21:00, 4 November 2017 (UTC)

Thanks Boleyn for your specific feedback and for monitoring Wikipedia's content. The hatnote is a subject that deserves to be discussed. Hatnotes are widely used in languages ​​other than English; reluctantly, the hatnotes are often erased in the project in English. Erasing hatnotes in English reduces my search efficiency; while in French the hatnotes help me to go faster in research and to find appropriate links. In geography, place names often appear similar or identical; thus, the hatnotes make it possible to validate similar place names. Let's put in perspective that the hatnote is generally useful when referring to an article of disambiguation. The hatnote facilitates navigation on Wikipedia. As WP becomes larger, it will be necessary to use the hatnotes. I hope that hatnotesless fans understand that hatnotes are very useful for many Wikipedia users. Hoping that in English, WP adopts the policy of promoting the hatnotes such in other languages as they are necessary for navigation. Veillg1 (talk) 22:00, 15 January 2017 (UTC)

Keep. The article "Muy" is a based on a French family name. This term has many uses: lake, river, commune of France, persons, an acronym for Moscow Airport, a village of Nicaragua, a township, a magazine, an album, an actor, a mountain in Mexico, a watercourse in Nicaragua... That means this page is a reference for writing new articles in different languages. This disambiguation page help the readers to navigate through WP. We hope that WP will continue to support the initiatives of creation of disambiguation pages. Blocking creation may discourage WP writers.Veillg1 (talk) 4:10, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
