sections moved in restructuring[edit]

I've moved the sections below from the page as I'm in the middle of a restructuring and can't figure out a logical place to put the transliteration note. I think the list of articles was originally for article requests, but it's clear they have been started in the meantime. I'm going to replace these with an article help section that people can specify what sort of assistance they are suggesting and let other editors move any appropriate articles below to that section. - BT 02:53, 30 September 2006 (UTC)

A Note On Transliteration[edit]

I've got some data culled from Google on various transliterations of terms related to Sudan. It seems as good a way as any to try to settle on a standard transliteration. For example, here are some data for Janjaweed:

  • Janjaweit 23
  • Jangawid 41
  • Janjuweed 65
  • Jingaweit 404
  • Janjawid 7210
  • Janjaweed 18000

So in this case Janjaweed is certainly the best transliteration. I'll post more of these in respective articles. Perhaps we could look into an Article on tips on consistently transliterating Arabic?

Unreferenced living people articles bot[edit]

User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects provides a list, updated daily, of unreferenced living people articles (BLPs) related to your project. There has been a lot of discussion recently about deleting these unreferenced articles, so it is important that these articles are referenced.

The unreferenced articles related to your project can be found at >>>Wikipedia:WikiProject Sudan/Unreferenced BLPs<<<

If you do not want this wikiproject to participate, please add your project name to this list.

Thank you.

Update: Wikipedia:WikiProject Sudan/Unreferenced BLPs has been created. This list, which is updated by User:DASHBot/Wikiprojects daily, will allow your wikiproject to quickly identify unreferenced living person articles.
There maybe no or few articles on this new Unreferenced BLPs page. To increase the overall number of articles in your project with another bot, you can sign up for User:Xenobot_Mk_V#Instructions.
If you have any questions or concerns, visit User talk:DASHBot/Wikiprojects. Okip 23:26, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

Beautiful pictures of this country[edit]

Hi, just a quick note about this category on Commons containing photos related to this country which could really use inclusion in Wikipedia articles, beside an improved categorization. Thanks for your help! --Elitre (talk) 13:06, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

User:Dr. Blofeld has created Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/Contests. The idea is to run a series of contests/editathons focusing on each region of Africa. He has spoken to Wikimedia about it and $1000-1500 is possible for prize money. Would anybody here be interested in contributing to one or assisting draw up core article/missing article lists? He says he's thinking of North Africa for an inaugural one in October. If interested please sign up in the participants section of the Contest page, thanks.♦ --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 20:03, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
