Common name[muokkaa wikitekstiä]
Pinkku Pinsku is a kind of stage name of Pinja Sanaksenaho who runs her own YouTube channel. She voiced Princess Cadence in the Finnish dub of My Little Pony: The Movie (2017).
While I was editing the My Little Pony: Elokuva article, I choose Pinkku Pinsku name, because its the common name, and people usually refer the celebrities by stage name over real name. But some folks were replacing it with the real name Pinja Sanaksenaho. Now what? JSH-alive (keskustelu) 15. helmikuuta 2018 kello 17.23 (EET)
Yarn bombing[muokkaa wikitekstiä]
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q579816 makes the claim that yarn bombing is associated specifically with Finland, and cites the Finnish Wikipedia as a source. I can't read Finnish, so I have no idea whether there is a solid citation here for that claim, but to say the least I have my doubts. The phenomenon is certainly common in the U.S., and the English-language Wikipedia has citations for the U.S. being the probable origin. Can someone follow this up? - Jmabel (keskustelu) 1. toukokuuta 2018 kello 02.06 (EEST)
- It looks like someone has now removed that claim from Wikidata, but you still may want to review the article here. - Jmabel (keskustelu) 1. toukokuuta 2018 kello 02.11 (EEST)
Disney is yet to give its upcoming streaming service an official name. The so-called "Disney Play" is a result of a reporter for Variety misinterpreting what Bob Iger said in a Disney telephone conference. (Variety have since corrected the article in question.)
I believe the article currently titled Disney Play here in the Finnish Wikipedia should be renamed either Disney Streaming Services LLC (the company that will operate the upcoming service) or a translation of "Unnamed Walt Disney Company streaming service" in Finnish.
Additionally, you may give a hatnote to the article that "Disney Play" was also a name of a video catch-up service operated by Disney Channel Scandinavia. JSH-alive (keskustelu) 8. lokakuuta 2018 kello 15.41 (EEST)
Help with a project[muokkaa wikitekstiä]
I am initiating a project to record the name of my language in all the languages present in Wikipedia. First, I encourage you to create / improve the article on the Asturian language and, on the other hand, to help me in my project I would need a man and a woman to record how it is said in your language: Asturian and then upload it to Commons. Thanks in advance. - Vsuarezp (keskustelu) 16. marraskuuta 2018 kello 00.29 (EET)
Translation request – Finnish to English[muokkaa wikitekstiä]
Hello! You all have a great article here about the Tampere conference of 1905 (Tampereen konferenssi 1905). At the moment, the English Wikipedia has nothing on this very interesting historical subject. I would really like to see this article translated into English. I asked on the English Wikipedia, and was told that this was the right place to find someone capable of such translation...is anyone up to the task? I can help with copyediting and English sources...
