Proposals for closing projects/Closure of Swati Wikipedia‎


Dear colleague, I saw your vote supporting close Wikipedia siSwati. I don´t know if you had visited, before your comment, the WP:ss. Moreover, I cannot to Know what you consider is activity.

I visit WP:zea (Zeêuws), where you collaborate. It has a similar number of users (84 zea: versus 87 ss:), so we could compare both. Of course zea: is more developed, 124 articles, and 2.459 editions. In the other side ss: has 35 articles and 910 editions. But these stats are from the projects exist.

I would like you attend these aspects:

  1. May 19, when it is proposed to close, ss: have "2" articles. We have today "35", only in one month.
  2. A Wikipedia project is not consider small (tiny) from 100 articles. In such case, it not should be closed.
  3. The last month we have realized in ss: "500" editions.
  4. The average of editions per day, in this last month, is bigger in ss: than in zea:.

I don't believe these wikis are inactive. But you are free to think so.

Thanks for yous time. Best regards.--Jatrobat 09:25, 25 June 2007 (UTC)Reply

Hi Oostwesthoesbes, I've seen you apparently removing some supporting votes for the closure proposal for the Volapük Wikipedia -- of course I'm against closure, but isn't this going a bit too far? I have restored the votes. (Or did I understand something wrong?). --Smeira 11:16, 24 October 2007 (UTC)Reply

They're just votes. On Oppose is also a vote of user with the greek letters deleted. --OosWesThoesBes 11:18, 24 October 2007 (UTC)Reply
True, but because it was duplicated; a user cannot vote twice. But the ones you eliminated didn't vote twice, did they? Or is it because they didn't justify their vote? Is it necessary to always add a reason? --Smeira 02:08, 25 October 2007 (UTC)Reply
I though that that Greek had only voted once, just like the others. I deleted those votes because indeed nothing was justified. And I thought it really is one of the necessary things. --OosWesThoesBes 06:48, 25 October 2007 (UTC)Reply

For a case like Aeres, even if they had obtained an ISO code, an active community, and translated the interface, they would still need to demonstrate that the language isn't just used by, say, 20 hobbyists, and that there are publications, TV shows, newspapers, etc in the language. The goal of the Wikimedia foundation is to promote the spread of knowledge, not to promote constructed languages, so if someone wants to propose a project in a constructed language, they will have to provide evidence of widespread use.--Shanel 22:48, 7 December 2007 (UTC)Reply

Language boxes


Hello Ooswesthoesbes. I saw that you substituted the old babel templates. The new template is constantly refined based on suggestions from users. If you have any suggestions to improve {{user language}} to your liking, they are more than welcome.

If you still want to use the old format, this is possible with {{babelold}}, which is the old format but using the new text and categories (I've used it on your user page so you can see if you like it better). If you prefer to substitute entirely, we can use invisible templates to categorize instead, if that's okay with you. You can compare the three formats below. Again, any suggestions are welcome. :)

{{user en-3}}
en-3 This user is able to contribute with an advanced level of English.
en-3 This user can read and write fluently in English.
{{user language|en|3}}
en-3 This user can read and write fluently in English.

{admin} Pathoschild 21:32:32, 09 February 2008 (UTC)

I appreciate your work very much but I still preffer the substituted version. I don't know why but I think one of the reasons is the arcading (¿arcering?) Not all templates are translated yet, will be done soon I think. On my computer the colours seem very dull. I think these things are caused by the thickness. The old babel templates are thicker which make them fuller, which is my personal favourite :) --OosWesThoesBes 07:46, 10 February 2008 (UTC)Reply
Okay. I added the category template I mentioned, so you'll be categorized using the same system the template does. —{admin} Pathoschild 11:13:34, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Hoi, I noticed that you asked yet again for another project for a language that you do not master. Why do this? There is a strong contingent of people who object to new projects when they are asked for by people who are unlikely to know the first thing about these languages. This is not helpful.

Hello Ooswesthoesbes, thanks for that, I am sure I do a lot, because English is not really a language I prefer and I am not good at it (You don't want to hear me speaking it XD ).

Hi, I fully intend to request closure of sq.wikinews as well, however I would rather wait a little bit so that it's been inactive for longer. The fact that bs.wikinews has been inactive since March and has already been requested to close once makes the case more convincing; I would rather wait until 6 months have passed for sq.wikinews as well, which will be in February. --Node ue 20:22, 4 October 2011 (UTC)Reply

It's my good work, I understand Nahua languages; Incubator:Wp/nhn/Tochtli, Incubator:Wp/nhn/Tochmeh, Incubator:Wp/nhn/Alotl, Incubator:Wp/nhn/Huehxolotl, Incubator:Wp/nhn/Ocelotl, Incubator:Wp/nhn/Malinalco, Incubator:Wp/nch/Mexko, Incubator:Wp/nch/Palach, Incubator:Wp/nci/Teutontlālpan, and others. It's obvious that people who attack always show the bad and never recognize the good in the people. --Marrovi (talk) 01:06, 25 March 2018 (UTC)Reply

Ooswesthoesbes, I am not an ordinary editor as some people have made you believe, I have a long history in studies of the revitalization of Nahuatl languages ​​in prestigious institutions and I know many academic people [10], writers and people who speak Nahuatl languages, not only are my friends, sometimes I have worked together with them on the Nahuatl language projects. I have many years studying the languages ​​of my country and logically I have the moral and professional quality to edit in any project of the incubator, so I have never had the attitude of scamming, as ripped off by a person who claims to be an eminence in Nahuatl language. I do not seek to make a mockery of anything because my work is serious.

I show you my photographs about my works and meetings at the University of Warsaw, in Poland [11], at UNAM (my mother university) and in Wikipedia about the Nahuatl languages, because now you can prove that I'm not an ordinary user as you were led to believe, many years of work guarantee me, is bother for me that you get ripped off. See you.--Marrovi (talk) 01:27, 25 March 2018 (UTC)Reply

Your questions have been answered, can you read my answer in my user talk, they never make a message on my user talk, about questions.--Marrovi (talk) 14:30, 25 March 2018 (UTC)Reply
Are you understand Nahuatl languages?--Marrovi (talk) 14:31, 25 March 2018 (UTC)Reply
May name is Manuel Rodríguez Villegas, Everything you need to know about Nahuatl languages or about any problem, I can help you and respond immediately, I am not a wizard, I can not guess if you want to know something or ask me about a doubt, I have certified knowledge about the Nahuatl languages, but If something I do not know, I can ask friends who are native speakers.--Marrovi (talk) 14:47, 25 March 2018 (UTC)Reply

I'm not ordinary editor, I can help you about nahuatl languages, I'm studing Nahuatl languages since 2003, I have meetings with academics and native speakers. I have many books and a lot of material about the Nahuatl languages.--Marrovi (talk) 15:03, 25 March 2018 (UTC)Reply

Again the answer


Question 1. How many pages (approximately) have you copied from Huiquipedia to Incubator? Let me point out to you that ... You are allowed to copy. When you copy, you must add attribution for the source. You have to say where you copied things from. If you did not do that, you are in violation of copyright under CC-BY-SA 3.0 and GFDL. And copyright violation can result in a block.

I was copied 31 articles from Huiquipedia to incubator.--Marrovi (talk) 17

Question 2. I note from the discussion we had at m:Proposals for closing projects/Closure of Nahuatl Wikipedia 2 that the question of just what language(s) the Nahuatl Wikipedia is written in is not so clear. But it does seem pretty clear that Classical Nahuatl (nci) is certainly a language used in that project. So I do not see why we would have a project Wp/nci. How do you justify that?
Central nahuatl is life language, Classical Nahuatl is dead language.--Marrovi (talk) 17

The case around Central Nahuatl (nhn) is a little less clear, but on the whole I also wonder why we have a project Wp/nhn. Please explain that, as well. (Remember: two sentences, not a whole essay.)
Question 3. If so many pages you copy of Nahuatl Wikipedia to different tests here are identical, then why do we need multiple tests here? Recall that LangCom is not willing to approve tests when the language is not noticeably different from that of an existing test. Please explain.

Please answer these questions. Thank you. StevenJ81 (talk) 22:34, 19 March 2018 (UTC)Reply

Huiquipedia is a jumble of words, words invented by users, mix Classical Nahuatl language with different life languages, that generates confusion and deception, that's why created (nci), so that once again the articles are hailed, be clear only in classic Nahuatl and not in inventions; that's why I copied them and pasted them in Incubator as (nci).--Marrovi (talk) 17

You are witness that the questions were answered, as a gentleman I gave my word and my answers. Have you a nice day.--Marrovi (talk) 18:50, 25 March 2018 (UTC)Reply

I write to User talk:MarcoAurelio in Spanish language, because is other witness in this case.--Marrovi (talk) 19:39, 25 March 2018 (UTC)Reply

User talk:Akapochtli/Diálogo para el entendimiento


Un gran favor de hombre a hombre; si algo puede hacer usted, pídale al señor Francisco Maciel o Akapochtli, de la manera más atenta que me deje en paz, no creo que sea mucho pedir.--Marrovi (talk) 16:08, 28 June 2020 (UTC)Reply



You also have to go and delete the bogus closure request itself. (;-) StevenJ81 (talk) 11:43, 6 September 2018 (UTC)Reply

That's a bit difficult when you're not an admin though ;) --OosWesThoesBes (talk) 11:49, 6 September 2018 (UTC)Reply
Somehow, I thought you were. (embarrassed grin) Tag it with {{delete}}, then, I guess. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:54, 6 September 2018 (UTC)Reply
Hahah, I had done that. I guess the IP address reverted that without me noticing. --OosWesThoesBes (talk) 14:04, 6 September 2018 (UTC)Reply

Unfortunately, I cannot approve projects. This has to be done by the LangCom. I propose you put a message on the talk page there. --OosWesThoesBes (talk) 11:24, 29 October 2018 (UTC)Reply

Server switch message looks for translators



In the past, you helped with the translation of Tech/Server switch. This message will soon be displayed to the public. We look for translators to update this message and check if everything is okay.

I hope you can help.
