Makowski - Neung sur Beuvron[edit]

Nothing mentioned of the Croix de Guerre avec Palme hero Stanislaw Makowski on the Neung sur Beuvron stub.

Move proposal for the French RAID page[edit]

Hello, I have made a move proposal for the page : Research, Assistance, Intervention, Deterrence to RAID (French Police unit). Please note this is in fact an amended proposal since the first one I made - for RAID (French Police) - was found ambiguous. If you'd like to vote, you can go to Talk:Research, Assistance, Intervention, Deterrence#Requested move 17 April 2016. Thanks and regards, Bruno --Domenjod (talk) 14:56, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Please help evaluate Draft:Bastir! about a political organisation[edit]

Draft:Bastir! is "stuck" at AFC because reviewers do not have the ability to evaluate the sources cited in the draft. Please post your opinions about this draft's acceptability to the draft's talk page. Thanks Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 13:23, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Why did the French-language Wikipedia reject an attempt to create a Bastir! article [1]? BrineStans (talk) 20:54, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Perhaps because this movement is secessionist... The French hate regionalists.

The nationalists French of wikipedia ask NATIONAL articles for an article on REGIONAL movement. So, except terrorists or nazis-regionalists movements with nationals articles to stigmatize the regionalists violence, "no regionalist democratic movement in France" because no post at national level. LOL!

But if French stigmatize the regionalist terrorism and censure the democratic regionalism (newspapers, wikipedia, tv), there is a little article "Bastir" on the Occitan wikipedia !

"Bastir!" is not a French movement : "Bastir!" is a democratic Occitan movement present in some region of France ! why asking the wikipedia French opinion ? you should ask the opinion of the Occitan wikipedia.

Raymond Trencavel (talk) 09:13, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

Neither the French nor Occitan Wikipedias opinions are relevant, the English Wikipedia has its own policies and standards. So please can we have a definite opinion from this project about the acceptability of the sourcing of Draft:Bastir!? If the draft passes WP:RS, WP:N and WP:V please just say so, then we can get this draft out of the AFC workflow, where it is now the oldest draft in the queue. Thanks Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 16:39, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for your neutrality and your own policies and standards. Well I am new on wikipedia, and I do not understand what exactly means WP: RS WP: N and WP: V.

Can't the mentioned articles of newspapers and medias relating to the movement agree to this?

French wikipedia said "not famous about all France, not evocate in the French nationals newspapers"...

But "Bastir!" is not a national French movement ! it's an Occitan "regionalist" movement, only evoked in the newspapers of the Occitans regions ! well, it is evoked in Spain, in a nationalist Basc newspaper and in a nationalist newspaper of Catalonia. Well, Wikipedia French said : "only an Occitanist regionalist movement, in Catalonia or Basc country too (Catalonia and Basc Country are REGIONS of Spain), "Bastir!" is only a regionalist movement, it is not a national movement, it is not acceptable by Wikipedia France"... Well, of course, "Bastir!" in not a French national movement, and it's not evoked in All regions of France by French nationals newspapers, because "Bastir!" is an Occitanist movement : "Bastir!" is only evoked in the newspapers and medias of the Occitan Counties and in the neighbourgs regionalists newspapers (Catalonia, Basc Country).

You must judge yourself the acceptability of this article: the nature of the movement "Bastir!" is incompatible with wikipedia France (Regionalist movement : not evoked in French national press... And it will be never evoked because of its regionalist nature !). But maybe compatible for the English Wikipedia ? "Bastir!" is very evoked in regionals medias (tv and newspapers of Occitania) and a little bit in the nationalists newspapers of the neighbourgs countries (Basc and Catalonia).

Was Fernando de Noronha a French colony?[edit]

Copied from main discussion at Talk:Fernando de Noronha#Former French colony?


Article Fernando de Noronha and Category:Fernando de Noronha are categorized as Former French colonies, but the article says nothing about it. Which one is true? Place Clichy (talk) 14:32, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

Auto-assessment of article classes[edit]

Following a recent discussion at WP:VPR, there is consensus for an opt-in bot task that automatically assesses the class of articles based on classes listed for other project templates on the same page. In other words, if WikiProject A has evaluated an article to be C-class and WikiProject B hasn't evaluated the article at all, such a bot task would automatically evaluate the article as C-class for WikiProject B.

If you think auto-assessment might benefit this project, consider discussing it with other members here. For more information or to request an auto-assessment run, please visit User:BU RoBOT/autoassess. This is a one-time message to alert projects with over 1,000 unassessed articles to this possibility. ~ RobTalk 22:28, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Napoleon Reassessment[edit]

Napoleon, an article that you or your project may be interested in, has been nominated for an individual good article reassessment. If you are interested in the discussion, please participate by adding your comments to the reassessment page. If concerns are not addressed during the review period, the good article status may be removed from the article.

Notice to participants at this page about adminship[edit]

Many participants here create a lot of content, have to evaluate whether or not a subject is notable, decide if content complies with BLP policy, and much more. Well, these are just some of the considerations at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship.

So, please consider taking a look at and watchlisting this page:

You could be very helpful in evaluating potential candidates, and maybe even finding out if you would be a suitable RfA candidate.

Many thanks and best wishes,
