Florin Àrúbà[àtúnṣe àmìọ̀rọ̀]

Hello Wikicology, this link (Florin Àrúbà) is no spam. This page is linked in many Wikis in other languages (for exemple in (en), (es), (de), (fr), ... Regards, Frank

Frank, the addition of link like this across many project may be considered disruptive. Just as Oníṣe:Savh rightfully pointed out, the link states "All presented banknotes belong to the series, which was in circulation during my stay on Aruba (2015). The collection does not claim to completeness or timeliness.", which to me clearly indicate that the source is nothing but a spam link. I urge you to refrain from adding this to Wikipedia. I am going to revert your edits on other Wikis where you added the link. I am sorry for any inconveniences that may arise. Wikicology (ọ̀rọ̀) 22:08, 7 Oṣù Kẹfà 2016 (UTC)
Hello Wikicology, thanks for the quick answer. To undo the linking is your good right as administrator of this site. But, I can assure that I have thoroughly checked the page prior to linking. There are definitifly no links to commercial sites. The disputed footnote at the bottom of the page ("All presented banknotes belong to the series, which resulting in circulation during my stay on Aruba (2015). The collection does not claim to completeness or timeliness.") I think is a kind of disclaimer. It tells the time, the banknotes were locally in circulation (2015) and it indicates that there may be other banknotes of Arbua, they might not seen on the page. Regards, Frank
PS: You should check my second change on the page again. The Florin is not a currency of Africa, but an America's currency.
First off, I am not an administrator on Yoruba Wikipedia. That being said, I do not see how the statement "All presented banknotes belong to the series, which resulting in circulation during my stay on Aruba (2015). The collection does not claim to completeness or timeliness." is a disclaimer. I repeat, your addition of this particular link across one or more Wikipedia project is troubling. You are welcome to replace the source with a valid one. Thank you. Wikicology (ọ̀rọ̀) 07:07, 8 Oṣù Kẹfà 2016 (UTC)

Father's Prayer in Tsonga[àtúnṣe àmìọ̀rọ̀]

Hi Wikicology, just want to let you know, I've added this section to 25 individual wiki's today, but you are the only one who wants to revert it! If you want it referenced, please read your Bible. Aliwal2012 (ọ̀rọ̀) 16:48, 16 Oṣù Kẹfà 2016 (UTC)

I am not sure I understand what you mean by "read your Bible". Do you mean it was written in the Bible? Wikicology (ọ̀rọ̀) 17:24, 16 Oṣù Kẹfà 2016 (UTC)
Yes. Aliwal2012 (ọ̀rọ̀)17:24, 16 Oṣù Kẹfà 2016 (UTC)
Cite it and I will verify it. Let me know if you need help citing this source. Wikicology (ọ̀rọ̀) 17:24, 16 Oṣù Kẹfà 2016 (UTC)
The prayer in Matthew 6:9–13 in English reads:
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
In the english wiki it is referenced as:
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+6%3A5%E2%80%9313&version=KJV
By the way, why do you think the bible verse should be included in the article, Èdè Tsonga? Wikicology (ọ̀rọ̀) 17:37, 16 Oṣù Kẹfà 2016 (UTC)
Why are you changing the topic now? I gave you the citation, can u please tell me if is useable before I include it in the article?
Aliwal2012 (ọ̀rọ̀) 17:50, 16 Oṣù Kẹfà 2016 (UTC)
I am sorry, the contents are not relevant to the article. I am struggling to see why this should be included in that article. Can you tell me the relevance of the Bible passage to the article? Honestly, I am willing to help but I am not sure of why the contents should be included. Wikicology (ọ̀rọ̀) 17:57, 16 Oṣù Kẹfà 2016 (UTC)
I came across the example of the prayer in Tsonga on the Netherlands wiki today, and thought it to be a good idea to include it on other wiki's Tsonga article. The text of the prayer is shown as an example of the use of the Tsonga language, relating to a well-known English prayer. Its not about the contents of the prayer, it is quoted purely as a Tsonga language example! Hope this clarifies my intention to you. Aliwal2012 (ọ̀rọ̀) 18:09, 16 Oṣù Kẹfà 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for your willingness to help improve Wikipedia but unfortunately, the inclusion of this text to the article does not make any sense to me. Bible is written in different languages including English, Yoruba, French, Deutsch and several other languages. Just because a version of Tsonga language was written is not enough for you to start including Bible verses to Wikipedia to validate the existence of Tsonga language. Cross-wiki inclusion of text like this may be considered disruptive. I strongly suggest that you refrain from adding this text to Wikipedia. I am sure the folks at en-wiki would have reverted your edit if you already included the text there. Wikicology (ọ̀rọ̀) 18:29, 16 Oṣù Kẹfà 2016 (UTC)

Sign up for the new Wikipedia Library User Group![àtúnṣe àmìọ̀rọ̀]

Hello TWL coordinators! After much contemplation and planning, The Wikipedia Library has decided to move forward its longtime desire of bringing together Wikipedians and librarians by creating an user group. The user group is yet to be recognized by the Affiliations Committee, but you are welcome to sign up as a member by adding your name in the user group meta page. Once you do that, please join the discussion in deciding the user group name, logo, and organizers. You can even volunteer to lead the group! And of course please don't forget to invite your community and friends! The user group intends to,

Wikipedia Library User Group logo.svg
  • provide guidance for Wikimedians engaging with libraries, and libraries engaging with Wikimedia,
  • provide a venue for the exchange of ideas around collaborations and opportunities for Wikimedia and libraries,
  • work with libraries and library information schools promoting the use of Wikipedia in their curriculum, and
  • reach out to libraries that could potentially engage with Wikimedia.

Join us and help spread the news! Thank you, AVasanth (WMF) via, MediaWiki message delivery (ọ̀rọ̀) 20:03, 17 Oṣù Kẹta 2017 (UTC)

I think[àtúnṣe àmìọ̀rọ̀]

That you should apology to Jielle about this.

The images are categorized Kwara_State. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Kwara_State

The article is about Kwara State

So, maybe you are NOT happy with her adding images, but the comment irrelevant images randomly to articles is just plain disrespectful. Maybe you do not like those images categorized Kwara_State to be in the article about Kwara_State. But this is in no way irrelevant and certainly not random. Please consider apologies for the rude comment. Really Anthere (ọ̀rọ̀) 17:20, 13 Oṣù Kejìlá 2017 (UTC)

Anthere, how is maybe you are NOT happy with her adding images a logical argument? I and Jielle have worked together on Wikimedia Commons and I enjoyed working with them. So, this is not about Jielle but about those images. Categorizing images as Nigeria does not necessarily mean that you will add a bunch of those images to the article "Nigeria". Nothing shows the relationship between the images and the subject of the article other than the images was categorized Kwara State on Commons. Regards. Wikicology (ọ̀rọ̀) 17:54, 13 Oṣù Kejìlá 2017 (UTC)
The first image I can see in the category now is the image of the Governor of Kwara State. I am talking about File:Abdulfatah Ahmed at PGLS 2.jpg. If this image was used with the caption "Abdulfatah Ahmed, the Governor of Kwara State", I doubt anyone would remove it. The only edit I could make to it is translating it into Yoruba. Wikicology (ọ̀rọ̀) 18:00, 13 Oṣù Kejìlá 2017 (UTC)

Ipinle Kwara[àtúnṣe àmìọ̀rọ̀]

I will revert your edit back to Ipinle Kwara. There was already a redirect from Kwara State to Ipinle Kwara so changing the title to English is not necessary and its spelled Kwara not Kuara even in Yoruba. Thanks Demmy (ọ̀rọ̀) 17:24, 13 Oṣù Kejìlá 2017 (UTC)

I know that Kwara State was redirected to Ipinle Kwara but I doubt anyone would search the title in Yoruba language for multiple reasons. There is no Yoruba keyboard on major devices e.g computer desktops, laptops used in Nigeria. Thus, no one would have look for Ipinle Yoruba with the diacritical marks on Google or other search engine. The implication is that people will not be able to read it. Our encyclopedia becomes useless if people cannot look out topics to read on it. I don't know of if you are seeing it from that direction, so I am not going to revert you. I'll rather copy the correct contents into your version of the article title. Regards. Wikicology (ọ̀rọ̀) 18:18, 13 Oṣù Kejìlá 2017 (UTC)

James Coburn[àtúnṣe àmìọ̀rọ̀]

Hi Wikicology .... You asked to delete the above article but this one at least has an image. If you look at the articles in this category "Ẹ̀ka:Àwọn agbá tẹ́nìs" they are much worse and and they were also created by Demmy, the only administrator here. You do not think it's best to tell him? Greetings DARIO SEVERI (ọ̀rọ̀) 08:56, 3 Oṣù Kínní 2018 (UTC)

Oníṣe:DARIO SEVERI, That article pop up when I clicked the "random article " bar and I requested it's deletion, that was over a year ago. I haven't look into that category and possibly any other category but it seems like a category that needs attention. I have been fixing and improving some of these articles. I will surely improve this one today. If you look at Demmy's talk page you will notice that I have contacted him on the needs for improvement on articles like this created by him. Happy new year. Wikicology (ọ̀rọ̀) 09:35, 3 Oṣù Kínní 2018 (UTC)
Hi Wikicology, thanks for your massage in my Ọ̀rọ̀ oníṣe and thanks for improving the article above. Regards DARIO SEVERI (ọ̀rọ̀) 09:50, 6 Oṣù Kínní 2018 (UTC)
Hi Wikicology. Happy new year. Sorry for my late response. I created the generic template for those articles with the intention of filling them up later through edits but other thing got the best of my time. You can mark them for deletion or edit them accordingly.Demmy (ọ̀rọ̀) 20:49, 9 Oṣù Kínní 2018 (UTC)
Demmy, I knew you had a good intention when you created them. It would be best to improve them rather than nominating them for deletion since they are notable topics. Regards. Wikicology (ọ̀rọ̀) 20:56, 9 Oṣù Kínní 2018 (UTC)

Hi. The notification was working. Were you not receiving notifications before?

Also protect new templates and modules after you've created them. On the page tab, pull down the Ọ̀pọ̀ menu and use the Àbò link to protect. Set both the Àtúnṣe and Ìyípò to Gba àwọn alámùójútó nìkan láyè and click on ìmúdájú to confirm.Demmy (ọ̀rọ̀) 13:49, 20 Oṣù Kínní 2018 (UTC)

Offline version of Yoruba Wikipedia[àtúnṣe àmìọ̀rọ̀]

Hello,

James told me there's an offline version of internet-in-a-box getting ready for shipping in Nigeria, and that they wanted to include the Yoruba Wikipedia, which is a great idea (I'm one of the Kiwix guys, btw)

We've started to simplify the start pages and make them simpler, more offline-friendly: we remove links that do not work offline, dates that would be meaningless months later (generating a zim file is like taking a snapshot, and users get tired of seeing the same picture of the day shown forever on the landing page).

To that effect I've prepared quick, Yoruba-specific landing page: User:Stephane_(Kiwix)/Landing. Would you be willing to translate it?

The initial text comes from the English wiki but at the end of the day please make it yours: remove links that do not exist, add new ones, etc., so that it does look nice and friendly enough (but please no new images for the time being as long as we haven't got the CSS right).

Any questions? -> drop me a note!

Thanks a million, Stephane (Kiwix) (talk) 08:26, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

This is to acknowledge your message with thanks. I'll review and comment later. Regards Wikicology (ọ̀rọ̀) 07:54, 29 Oṣù Kẹta 2018 (UTC)

#1Lib1Ref from The Wikipedia Library[àtúnṣe àmìọ̀rọ̀]

1biblio1ref 1ori.svg The Wikipedia Library – #1Lib1Ref

#1Lib1Ref is happening again in May!

#1Lib1Ref, the annual campaign where librarians add references to improve Wikipedia, is coming back again this year, running from May 15th to June 5th, 2018.

  • Why twice? We heard from you a desire to run it again out of excitement, because May is not summer vacation for the southern hemisphere, and because Spanish Wikipedia's birthday also falls in May. This is a great expansion of the event and it means that there is another opportunity to make Wikipedia more factual and verifiable by leveraging the expertise of librarians around the world.
  • How does this relate to the main campaign in January? We encourage librarians, community members, and affiliates to make 1Lib1Ref their own. So whether we call this 1Lib1Ref May, 1Lib1Ref for the Southern Hemisphere, or 1Lib1Ref Strikes Back, the point is the excitement is building again, and we'd like you to be a part of it.
  • If I participated in January, do I have to do it again in May? It's entirely up to you, this is just another chance if you want to do more, or if you couldn't get around to January activities. This is a pilot for us, too, so we'll see how it goes and discuss what we learned after the May campaign.
  • How can you get involved?

Sincerely,

On behalf of The Wikipedia Library Team --MediaWiki message delivery (ọ̀rọ̀) 08:40, 16 Oṣù Kẹrin 2018 (UTC)
