joyeux anniversaire florence

et plein de bonnes choses pour les 365 jours jusqu'au prochain ;D Alvaro

No more donations needed?

Why did you remove "And we need your help" from the home page? Angela 22:16, 18 September 2005 (UTC)

Since there is already one mention on the main page and one on the bar, I thought it was only there during Fundraising drive. And the Fundraising is over. If we keep it, then we should remove the other link in the page... Anthere

Hmm, interesting. I've been wondering why a lot of non-native english speakers do that, for several years now... :) --Phroziac (talk 22:51, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

Plop Florence, je te cop/col le message en anglais que j'ai laissé à Angela :

Hi Angela. I went through the whole list of pages on this wiki and built an User:Jd/Inventory. By the way, I'm not an admin here so I can't do much of the work I planned on this page. I would like to know if Anthere, you and Michael Snow (the bureaucrats here) would agree to make me admin here so I can maintain the wiki (templates, deletion, bla bla bla and all the nitty-gritty details). Meta needs spring-cleaning too, but it's far more difficult I guess. Lastly, I don't know how to get feedback on the inventory. Should I contact several members, here and/or on meta, or is there an appropriate mailing-list (wikipedia-l is not a good choice I guess).

I also wrote some notes as I reached some pages: User:Jd/Proposal.

Thanks :) Jd 14:44, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Et félicitations (et courage ;) pour le petit dernier, je ne me souviens plus si je te l'ai dit ^_^


Salut !

Eh bien cela fait un peu plus de deux semaines que le magazine TOC est dans les presses, merci pour tout le temps que tu as passé avec David Congnard. J'aime beaucoup le dossier qui a été fait.

Bon vent ! J'espère que tu vas bien.Pabix 15:29, 19 October 2006 (UTC)




Mailing list link

Hello Anthere. I've updated the old links to the mailing lists[1] on this wiki, except for one you added on 09 December 2006 labelled 'letter of intent'. I can't find the message it probably refers to, and it isn't linked to from elsewhere that might provide more information on the contents. Do you remember which message you were linking to? —Pathoschild 05:53, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

oh ! It was never written I think :-) Sorry Anthere
Okay, that makes updating it easier. Thanks. :) —Pathoschild 02:49, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

10 wishes for 2008

Hi, Anthere! What is edit:wishes link in your 10 wishes for 2008 ? Where it should link? --Kaganer 20:34, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

hello, NOWHERE. It is a sort of pun. People can edit their own wishes :-) I guess your comment show that it is not self-explanatory... hmmm Thanks Anthere 12:04, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
I do not fully understand how it should appear in the Russian translation ;) May be to remove the link from announcing, in order to facilitate the translations main page ? --Kaganer 14:43, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
Sigh.... just remove the link. Replace edit:wishes by "wishes". Sigh :-) Anthere 17:46, 4 January 2008 (UTC)


Hello Anthere, I just read your story on foundation-l about the Castle-copyvio and the French Gendarme; too bad it cost you (and him) so much time, but a great story it is :) Fruggo 21:23, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

eh :-) Anthere 14:59, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Your revert

You reverted my edit here and didn't even use an edit summary to explain to me why. Can you elaborate here? The page is outdated and, per the agreement of Transcom, we are going to replace all pages that have not been updated since before August 2007 with {{update needed}} and just add {{update needed}} to the top of the page and hope someone will update it if it was updated after August 2007. Cbrown1023 talk 20:00, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Lol. I did not "revert" you. I thought I was updating the page, after Teofilo pointed out that he had translated these resolutions, and was asking for additional checks. I did not check the history page, so I had no idea I was reverting you.
Ahh, sorry, I should've assumed better faith. :-)
I find the idea of removing *everything* when pages are not updated a bit strange (and rather dismissive of the work done by previous translators).
The thinking was that pages get so outdated that they are no longer useful (and may end up giving mis-information). For examples, see the nl/Nederlands and ro/Română translations of the Home page.
First, readers do not find any version of french, even though over a year of resolutions were already translated, so we fail as a service. Second, translators have little idea that a lot of the job has already been done, so could feel that the amount of work to provide is huge.
Hmm, good point. However, Resolutions is a strange case because it is one of the few pages that we do not "officially" ask for translation. Other pages are linked to the workspace on Meta-Wiki where the translations can be prepared and where (most of the time) the old translation is to expand.
It is not as if some information was no more valid (and in this case, it indeed is better removed), but simply some information is missing (which we could very well indicate at the top of the page.
You are correct for the Résolutions page.
Would we blank entirely a wikipedia article because it is not finished ? What were the arguments to decide to remove all unfinished things ? Also, is there an effort to find some editors to try to help finishing the translations till summer 07 ? Anthere 21:13, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
We had a multi-month house-cleaning process outlined and announced on the Translators' mailing list (translators-l), you can see the initial announcement here and the most recent update here. Cbrown1023 talk 22:35, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
