Jean Hoeufft[edit]

Please feel free to improve the article Jean Hoeufft, a 17th century French banker, who also worked on draining the Marais Poitevin. Mathglot (talk)


I've just seen that the article on Jean Ferrat is marked as being 'low' on the WikiProject France importance scale. An error, surely... Is Ferrat's importance to French culture really still in need of being demonstrated? Aridd (talk) 14:29, 13 June 2017 (UTC)

He's labeled as maximum in fr:Discussion:Jean Ferrat, therefore I moved his evaluation accordingly here. Regards, Comte0 (talk) 05:51, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

Foreign alliances of France missing the EU?[edit]

I noticed that {{Foreign alliances of France}} does not include the European Union. Just WP:WIP, or is there a reason for that? Paradoctor (talk) 23:01, 14 June 2017 (UTC)


Hello. Is there an infobox template suitable for settlements that do not have commune status? PaleCloudedWhite (talk) 06:25, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi. Wikipedia:WikiProject French communes suggests Wikipedia:WikiProject Country subdivisions, which uses Template:Infobox settlement. You should ask on Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Country subdivisions for further details. Regards, Comte0 (talk) 06:11, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi, I'm just popping in because I noticed something a little odd on Joan of Arc, details on the talk page and was hoping that someone more knowledgeable might be able to help out. Thanks! Mehmuffin (talk) 15:04, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

Jean Alfonse article[edit]

Opinions are needed on the following matter: Talk:Jean Alfonse#Recent edits. A permalink for it is here. The matter primarily concerns whether or not Jean Alfonse was Portugese and what the title of the article should be. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 00:03, 28 August 2017 (UTC)

Jardin botanique alpin "Daniella" is fake[edit]

I just wanted to attract the attention on the fact that this garden doesn't exist. I've been living in Limoges, France for 10 years and it is just not real. You can check the location on Google maps street view and see it by yourself.
