Overuse of national flag
I'm finding a LOT of these, as though it's a formula to shove it into the infobox. On the contrary, en.WP's guidelines say not to do that unless there's some particular reason to do so. Some exception is made (although is controversial) for flags in sports articles. Tony (talk) 05:11, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
- The use of a flagicon to represent Indonesia in infoboxes. There are tons, which need to be removed unless there's a good reason to retain, case by case. Tony (talk) 08:28, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
Tony your edit history of the last 5 years or more shows a pervading interest in flags, if you really want to make yourslf feel particularly unwell, try soccer articles in any project, not just this one. JarrahTree 02:56, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
I came across this edit when scanning through potential vandalism. I don't have any experience with this, so I was wondering if you could see if this was somehow salvageable with references and/or being re-written, otherwise an AFG revert will have to do. Thanks for your time in advance! Best, Nicnote • ask me a question • contributions 23:12, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

- Very typical of low level english editor leaving things on wikipedia project for the last ten years. No ref, and no return. No need to get hung up on details, revert JarrahTree 02:53, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

Popular pages report
We – Community Tech – are happy to announce that the Popular pages bot is back up-and-running (after a one year hiatus)!

Every month, will post at Wikipedia:WikiProject Indonesia/Popular pages with a list of the most-viewed pages over the previous month that are within the scope of WikiProject Indonesia.
We've made some enhancements to the original report. Here's what's new:
- The pageview data includes both desktop and mobile data.
- The report will include a link to the pageviews tool for each article, to dig deeper into any surprises or anomalies.
- The report will include the total pageviews for the entire project (including redirects).
We're grateful to m:User talk:Community Tech bot.for his original , and we wish his bot a happy robot retirement. Just as before, we hope the popular pages reports will aid you in understanding the reach of WikiProject Indonesia, and what articles may be deserving of more attention. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at
Warm regards, the Community Tech Team 17:16, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
Corythalia voluta is a species of spider that is already covered in Indonesian. It needs to be created in English. An article already exists in the Indonesian Wikipedia at id:Corythalia voluta, despite the subject having little to no affinity to Indonesia, since the animal lives in El Salvador This project is being notified because the subject already exists on the Indonesian Wikipedia, meaning that someone reading that article has to either know Indonesian or use a translator. WikiProject Spiders, WikiProject El Salvador have also been notified. — Mr. Guye (talk) (contribs) 17:04, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
- @Mr. Guye: FWIW, I checked the Indonesian article is just a few-sentence stub. Not sure if it's worth people's time to translate it. HaEr48 (talk) 20:55, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
- @Mr. Guye: id-wiki most likely translated it from one of the other wikis. According to the revision histories, the dutch wiki got there first in 2011 (not surprised about that; nl-wiki is really a quantity-over-quality project). Quality-wise, I think the Swedish page page is probably a better start. --HyperGaruda (talk) 15:27, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
Copyright law of 2014
A user at commons:Template talk:PD-IDGov, about how governmental portraits are exempt from the copyright law, said that the new copyright law contrary to Commons policy because: "the words translated as 'with due regard to dignity and fairness' (dengan memperhatikan martabat dan kewajaran) prevent use of an image in parody or political attack ads and, therefore, prevent use on Commons. Commons images must be free for any use whatsoever without any regard for dignity or fairness."
Districts and sub districts - aka Kabupaten and Kecamatan
Please note that there is regularly well meant changing of things to do with these terms
Please note the conversation at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:List_of_districts_of_Indonesia#Translation_of_kecamatan
Please note that this has been discussed before and there should not be reversions JarrahTree 15:19, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
- I have moved the page since there was no opposition; the discussion can now be found at Talk:List of subdistricts of Indonesia#Translation of kecamatan. --HyperGaruda (talk) 09:15, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
edit needed on Gender in Bugis society
- The advice of bissu* is typically sought to get a particular approval from the powers of the batin (hidden) world. One example is for Bugis who leave Sulawesi for the Hajj, the compulsory pilgrimage to Mecca. The bissu then seizes them and proceeds as an emissary of the batin.
* Androgynous bissu are priests, shamans, sorcerers, or mediums.
The underlined sentence is either nonsense, unlikely (kidnapping), or impossible (possession) and should be made understandable by someone knowledgeable.
