Main Page[edit source]

The Main Page shouldn't be free. Please protect it. -- ku:Bangin / de:Bangin 11:50, 15 u-Okthoba 2006 (UTC)

Da es hier keine Administratoren gibt, hat das bisher keiner gemacht. Jetzt ist sie halbgesperrt. Grüße, --Thogo 22:30, 16 uMeyi 2007 (UTC)
Freedom ! Please, set a light protection, for registered users… --Budelberger 12:25, 29 u-Agasti 2008 (UTC) (Flag of France.svg)

Wikibooks in Zulu language[edit source]

Hi all. There is a Wikibooks in Zulu. Maybe some of you might be interested in that? There wasn't any activity yet (the project exists for more than one and a half year now). --Thogo 21:52, 25 u-Apreli 2007 (UTC)


  • I Know of a person who wanted to translate his Afrikaans Bible-referenceing book "Waar staan dit" into Xhosa, but have not completed the task yet and is turning 70 this year. About half may be completed by now. Any suggestions? Any volunteers or people wanting to encourage him to comlete the task? Ds Kritzinger speaks Xhosa well, but I do not.

Small request[edit source]

Hello! I am a Polish wikipedian and I would like to ask you for your help - writing a new article about former Polish President who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1983 – Lech Wałęsa. I have looked for his biography in your Wikipedia but without success. Polish Wikipedians will be grateful for your help. Thank you so much in advance! PS you can find the English version of the article here. Best wishes from Poland, Patrol110 11:44, 26 uDisemba 2009 (UTC)

connectivity project[edit source]

Hallo, my name is Anastasiya Lvova, I'm "duty" in Connectivity project. The essence of the "Connectivity" project is to study and enhance the coherence of Wikipedia, or, in other words, to improve hypertext navigation between articles. The project deals with deadends, isolated articles, non-categorized articles, transitivity of the category tree, etc.

We want to work with your language version, but we need configured MediaWiki:Disambiguationspage for it (with direct links to template namespace pages, for example, ru:MediaWiki:Disambiguationspage/de:MediaWiki:Disambiguationspage/fr:MediaWiki:Disambiguationspage). Is it possible to set it up for our usage?

thanks in advance, Lvova 17:47, 13 uJuni 2010 (UTC)

Photo request: South African Airways HQ[edit source]

Hello! I have a photo request asking for an image of Airways Park, the South African Airways head office on the grounds of OR Tambo Airport in Johannesburg, South Africa, so the South African Airways article can have photos of the airline's head office.

This Google Maps View shows where the building is, and what it looks like. You can use a similar camera angle, as long as you capture the SAA logo on the building somehow.

Thank you, WhisperToMe 00:54, 27 uJuni 2010 (UTC)

South African Wikimedia Chapter[edit source]

Greetings! Discussion is underway to set up a local South African Wikimedia Chapter. There are currently over 25 chapters established around the world, but so far, none in Africa. Currently a group of local Wikipedians are in the process of setting up the South African chapter. If you're interested in being involved in the creation of a South African Wikimedia Chapter, please add your name to the Meta page and also join the mailing list here. Also, email me directly if you would like to be involved in the kickoff Chapter workshop scheduled to be held at Wits University on 7th and 8th August. Thanks, Kaydee 68 16:44, 28 uJulayi 2010 (UTC)

Iphutha kwikhasi[edit source]

There is a typing mistake it's Izonto ezinye whereas it should be ezinye izinto or izinto zokuxhumana.
