a list of keywords[muokkaa wikitekstiä]


I'm doing my project into language processing and I'm using Wikipedia. I want to use several languages in the tests, included the one of this version. And since I need some articles to analyze I wanted to ask for your help. Precisely, some keywords I will explain now.

Actually what I am looking for is a list in your language with the names of those territories which represents an entity of speakers (therefore possible wikipedia contributors) of your language, the name its people or gentilic, and the name of the language (if it is the same language and it has a different name). These territories must be in practice independent from each others or at least be considered so by the speakers. This is the case of colonies, excolonies, other countries which historically speak the same language or minorities attached into the country next to yours.

For example, a list in english something like. "english", "england", "irish", "ireland", "scottish", "scotland", "british", "united_kingdom", "american", "united_states", "canada", "canadian", "australia", "australian", "new_zealand", "new_zealander". Probably there are some others which are not very big but I don't know cuz I'm not familiar.

If you were so kind to produce me this list, I would so appreciate it! Thank you very much!

Foundation Images Policy[muokkaa wikitekstiä]

Hi everyone,
I am Yosri from Malay Wikipedia. Recently I was informed by certain parties that MS Wiki need to delete any images tagged as Non-Commercial under Foundation Licensing policy. After I have done some studies, I realised that Wikipedia Foundations is moving towards allowing commercialises all images, as such they are acting on behalf of commercial company to require all images loaded with tagging Non-Commercial in all Wiki Project to be removed, including those loaded in local Wiki. You are only allowed to licenses your images under "free content", which specifically allows commercial reuse, example GDLF 1.2. Certain images is exempted under a very narrow EDP ("exemption doctrine policy") definition. If you all already aware about this, please ignore this comment. Otherwise, for more details please visit Yosri 2. maaliskuuta 2011 kello 07.05 (EET)Vastaa[vastaa]

Hello colleagues! I am from the german Wikipedia and know very much about the general topic "Tatra". The title of the articel is false. The T is for Tatra. I have got a longer discussion (in english) with a user from the englisch wikipedia. So the actuell title means "Tatra Tatra 77". "T77" is okey whenn you don't use Tatra ahead of it. It's a featured articel and I suppose, that the title should be also correct. Because of the articel-statues I won't move the articel. I was in the technicalmuseum in Kopřivnice (the official museum of the manufacturer) and saw only "Tatra ##" or "T##". Also I would be lucky, if all articels with the false title would be moved. I hope my english wasn't so bad. Regards, Alofok 18. helmikuuta 2011 kello 20.38 (EET)Vastaa[vastaa]

I notified user Gwafton, who is our expert on the subject. -Ochs 18. helmikuuta 2011 kello 20.46 (EET)Vastaa[vastaa]
Hi Alofok. The main reason why I am using the "T" on the front of the model name is that also Tatra is using it. See for example the description about Tatra T810: [3]. Secondary, the letter T is used also in Radomír Zavadil's books Vojenské automobily Tatra v letech 1918 až 1945 - Tatra Military Vehicles from 1918 to 1945; vol. 2 (ISBN 978-80-87161-00-5) and vol. 3 (ISBN 978-80-87161-03-6). He has also made a book about T57, I haven't got that yet, but you can see the cover here: [4]. It is notable, that Zavadil has used primary sources for making of his books, ie he has collected the information from Tatra archives. I know that there is a number of enthusiasts' web sites which do not use the letter T, but the manufacturer's model numbering is what matters. Besides, in my understanding the T doesn't mean Tatra but Type. I guess this is the reason why the T is often dropped off.
Please revert your changes (at least in the Finnish Wikipedia). --Gwafton 21. helmikuuta 2011 kello 09.40 (EET)Vastaa[vastaa]
hello gwafton. i don't revert my changes because they are correct. the t before the number stays for tatra, not for type. for nothing else. at this place (the tatra-museum in the czech republik) you can see an official advertisment of the tatra 77 in the background, also of other tatra cars. i am not using websites for such things, i am using only official papers of cars and advertisments pictures of the history when the car was produced. tatra has today big trouble and huge problems that they today use false facts. also they lost their traditions. wikipedia should use the title as it is and was usual in the time of the production. that some authors are using the t is a problem of them. i know many literature that isn't using the t. Alofok 24. helmikuuta 2011 kello 22.46 (EET)Vastaa[vastaa]
T77 Advertising-1.jpg
I dont really understand what do you mean with false history writing of Tatra in this context. Tatra (and many Czech sources) often "forget" to mention that the main designers as well as the owners before WW II were native Germans. Also Hans Ledwinka is often regarded as Czech although he was Austrian. But I don't find any connection to the naming issue in this. Production models were marked with T, prototypes with V. It wouldn't make sense if T meant Tatra, why V 570 is not called TV 570 then? I think the producer knows the best how their products should be called, therefore Tatra's own version of the model names is the one which counts. --Gwafton 1. maaliskuuta 2011 kello 17.35 (EET)Vastaa[vastaa]
so, i have no other possibility: i write in the next days an e-mail to tatra because of the cars' name. Alofok 1. maaliskuuta 2011 kello 19.12 (EET)Vastaa[vastaa]
That would clarify this issue. In case they say that T is not needed with the old models, it would be good to know how it is with the new model names. Please ask them also about the prototype model names (the V-models). Mr Zátopek in Tatra Technical Museum could also maybe answer to this. I was in contact with him regarding some other matters for about one year ago. He can speak German. --Gwafton 2. maaliskuuta 2011 kello 10.09 (EET)Vastaa[vastaa]
But I am also able to talk Czech. Alofok 3. maaliskuuta 2011 kello 23.52 (EET)Vastaa[vastaa]

Help with translation?[muokkaa wikitekstiä]

The Wikimedia Foundation is preparing to launch a survey that it hopes will be helpful in discussing the future of how projects are funded on Wikipedia and sister sites. (More information about this can be read at meta:Fundraising and Funds Dissemination/Resource list and meta:Fundraising and Funds Dissemination/Recommendations, but you don't need to read it to help out here. :)) We would like input from as many people as possible, but the survey translations are not yet completed in many languages, including yours. The English version of the survey is at meta:Survey of how money should be spent/Questions/en. The Finnish version, currently 24% complete, is at meta:Survey_of_how_money_should_be_spent/Questions/fi. If you can help, you would be very welcome!

Translations are done using the "translation tool". If you go to this special page, all you have to do is select your language from the pull-down menu and click "fetch". It will bring up a table. You can easily see what has been translated and what has not. Click on the blue text in the left column next to content that has not been translated to open up an editing box. Above the box, the English version is shown, and you can simply enter in your language translation beneath it.

The survey is pretty short, so I hope we can get it completed in time to send it to Finnish editors in their own language. Thanks for any help you can offer! --Mdennis (WMF) (keskustelu) 5. maaliskuuta 2012 kello 17.23 (EET)Vastaa[vastaa]

Article translation request[muokkaa wikitekstiä]

I am trying to find someone who can help to translate User:Russavia/Polandball into Finnish. If anyone could help with that, it would be great if you could drop me a message on email ( or on my Commons talk page (Commons:User_talk:Russavia). All editors have my permission to edit the article at User:Russavia/Polandball to do the translation.

The article already exists on Russian, Spanish, Catalan, Arabic, Dutch, Greek, Swahili, Persian, etc Wikipedias. Any help with translating this article would be greatly appreciated

In return for a translation of the article, I will upload 40 new Finland-related images to Commons, from a range of subjects. Russavia (keskustelu) 11. toukokuuta 2012 kello 02.48 (EEST)Vastaa[vastaa]

Hi Russavia. This was deleted from the English Wikipedia and at first sight looks unlikely to meet the notability guidelines here. If someone does decide to try to get an encyclopedic article out of this, at the very least the comic will need to go. Jafeluv (keskustelu) 11. toukokuuta 2012 kello 11.03 (EEST)Vastaa[vastaa]
Hi Jafeluv, it was deleted from English Wikipedia because of wikipolitics. It was deleted on enwp, but was kept at AfD on Russian Wikipedia, is going thru deletion on Dutch Wikipedia and looks like it will survive. It now also exists on Catalan, Spanish, Persian, Ukrainian, Bulgarian, Belarussian, Greek, Croatian, Slovak, and even Mingrelian Wikipedia. All of these articles were created AFTER the nationalist-driven AfD on English Wikipedia. In addition, there are translations have already been begun for French, Portuguese, Japanese and Romanian wikipedias, with Swedish, Danish, Lithuanian, Estonian, Serbian, Basque, and yes, Polish, translations being organised and will be available before too long. Also, the English article will be undergoing deletion review in the next couple of weeks. So I would ignore English Wikipedia in its entirety and instead use all the other articles that exist to determine whether something is notable, and whether those projects have ignored English Wikipedia rubbish.
As to not being notable for Finnish wikipedia, I have reviewed Luokka:Internet-ilmiöt and the article, with a natural Finnish translation, would be better written, and more reliably sources, than the vast majority of the articles in that category. As to any images used, that would be a matter for editorial discretion and discussion, but being a user-generated internet meme, it is well within the scope of the article. I will also note that several articles in that category have undergone deletion, and were kept.
I will also note, that the Finnish translation at User:Russavia/Polandball has already started. All that is needed is any interested editors who can help to translate the rest. I will likely be able to get some more Finns to help with it, but it may be several weeks before they can help. Hence the message above.

Hi, this is just to let you know that the dangerous law that wasn't issued last year, when we blacked-out the site, is once again under discussion at the Italian Senate. This time things seem to be much much worse than one year ago. The act is now harder and contains many more obligations, so many and so dangerous that no sysops would work at such conditions because it would definitely be too risky. Very few among our users would go on editing BLPs or "spicy" topics any more because it could be very costly: up to 100,000 euros! And any legalised troll saying that something in our articles disturbs him, would be entitled to request an addition (inside the article) which actually we are not going to accept because the troll is not required to be honest and tell the truth, any liar would be legally welcomed and we couldn't even comment... (I'm not kidding, it's incredible but true...)
Moreover, this time the approval could more probably be forced by the so-called technical government (headed by Mr. Monti), and all the bigger Italian parties toghether (Berlusconians hands in hands with former communists - both had separately tried to enforce such an act before) are working for strengthening the act. So, this time we need a critical help from anyone, we need it now because the scheduled vote on next Monday could be the last time we can freely work on We need it strong because main Italian media are simply ignoring our protest, and we can't read any news about it outside the web.
So, please, please, please, do whatever you can in order to avoid at least that this can happen in a complete silence. Inform your deputy, call the closest Italian embassy, spam your papers and/or our Senators (open individual files for addresses), use your fantasy and do whatever you think might be strongly helpful in protecting Wikipedia, starting from spreading the news across the WikiWorld.
Any little thing you can do will be vitally important for

I try to translate this article on FR wiki (see draft), but I've problems with some words. Is anyone may help me in this job ?

  • « Hetemäki kirjoitti ylioppilaaksi Jyväskylän yhteislyseosta vuonna 1932. », what does it mean ? Is that the name of a school located in Jyväskylä ?

  • "Jyväskylän yhteislyseo" is a school, it's now known as Jyväskylän normaalikoulu.
  • Teollisuuden keskusvaliokunta - I haven't heard of it and googling doesn't help much, but sounds like it's some kind of interest association of big industrial companies.
  • "Suomen Puunjalostusteollisuuden keskusliitto" is now known as Metsäteollisuus ry (it merged with another similar organization in 1992).

Ten years of Wikipedia in Asturian language[muokkaa wikitekstiä]

Excuse me for not speaking Finnish yet.

Oviedo, September 8, 2014

Asturian is alive and in use.

Next September 12 and 13, the Asturian Wikipedia community of users will celebrate with the support of Wikimedia España Chapter the tenth anniversary of Uiquipedia, the free encyclopedia in Asturian. The events will take place in Auditorio Príncipe Felipe (Plaza La Gesta, Oviedo).

The first article in Asturian was «Zazaki», a minority language spoken in Turkey. That first edit was in July 26, 2004. Ten years later, more than 800 000 edits have been made on almost 20 000 articles, and numbers are growing every day with the work of tens of volunteers. And it doesn’t stop there: other Wikimedia projects in Asturian have developed, such as Wikicionary, Wikisource and Wikiquote. Managed by Wikimedia Foundation, all of them make part of a global movement that started in 2001 when Wikipedia started with the goal of delivering freely all human knowledge.

To commemorate this date, Uiquipedia and Wikimedia España are carrying out two days of celebration events so that the projects in Asturian are better known. Literature, poetry music and traditions in Asturian will be present. It’s free and everybody is welcome. In addition, Wikimedia España will have its annual General Assembly in Oviedo.

See here the schedule of activities.

  2. If a localisation of a name of some fictional character is based on foreign words (rather than native words), what should I do? For example, a character is called Ichiro in the original Japanese version, as well as English, Finnish and Swedish versions. But in Korean version, the character is renamed 잭, which is transliterated as Jaek according to RR, but it is actually came from "Jack", a typical English name.

In the case of 2), our guideline for editing East Asian related articles (Ohje:Itä-Aasiaa käsittelevät artikkelit) states that for borrowed (non-native) words, source language conventions should be used when displaying the name in a latinized form -- for instance, サンダーバード would be written out as Thunderbird, not Sandābādo.

Copyrighted monuments in Finland[muokkaa wikitekstiä]

I have strange problem with Wikipedia Deletion Request.

I have made a photo shot of the statue installed in the public place in Helsinki and uploaded it to Wikipedia. But I was told that this statue is copyrighted and therefore my image should be deleted.

After studying Freedom of Panorama (FOP) I realized that images of statues for which copyright is not expired, can not be uploaded to wikimedia.

But several questions arise:

  1. What is the copyright length for statues in Finland? In other words - how can I understand is specific statue is copyrighted?
  2. If I open a picture listed at I can see: (an example) So, "some rights are reserved". I suppose, commercial use is prohibited. Does it mean that I need to simply delete image from wikimedia and upload it to wikipedia directly with this restricted license? How can I do this?
  3. (related to the previous question) In general I can not understand how this list (see above) with images can even exist if these images can not be uploaded to Wikimedia (and they are!)
  4. Is it possible to organize "Wiki loves monuments" campaign in Finland? It looks like it is possible only if the scope of the campaign is limited only to non-copyrighted monuments and any buildings. Is it correct understanding?

Vitaly repin (keskustelu) 9. syyskuuta 2015 kello 12.41 (EEST)Vastaa[vastaa]

  1. Copyright length for statues in Finland is 70 years from the authors death. So the statue is free from the copyright in Finland if the author is died before 1945. Statue is free from copyright in both US and Finland if the author is died before 1926 (or maybe 1928 now) OR if the author is died before 1945 and if the statue is published before 1923.
  2. You can upload your picture locally to Finnish Wikipedia with toiminnot:Tallenna (special:upload) and you need to fill following information:
{{Tiedoston tiedot
| Kuvaus =  DESCRIPTION (add detailed information of the statue to this. )
| Päiväys = DATE
| Tekijä = AUTHOR
| Tekijänoikeuksien haltija = WHO OWNS THE COPYRIGHT OF THE IMAGE (not needed if author is added)

{{Taideteos|Ajan virta|{{Cc-by-2.0}}}} 
<!-- Taideteos template is [[:Right_to_quote]] -licence for works of art and first param is name of the article where picture is used and second param is licence for the photograph. Eg the photograph and the statue have both their own licences. -->
  1. They are used in Luettelo_Helsingin_patsaista_ja_muistomerkeistä per Non-free images or music samples are allowed if 1) they are not replaceable by free content considering the purpose which they are serving in the article and 2) they are used in accordance with the quotation right of the Finnish copyright law. Historically significant non-free images are forbidden, as they could be replaced. Also non-free images of living people are forbidden. (m:Non-free_content), but you need to ask from user:Kulttuurinavigaattori if you need more detailed information.

Hi. I can see that this project has old JavaScript that needs to be updated. I would happily make the required updates myself, but I would have to – at least temporarily – become an admin here to do that (because the relevant pages are in the MediaWiki namespace). I have already made these updates on a number of Swedish projects and one Norwegian project, so it would be very easy for me to do this. If no one does anything, a lot of JavaScript-related tools will break later this year. Does the community want me to make these updates? Nirmos (keskustelu) 31. toukokuuta 2016 kello 22.07 (EEST)Vastaa[vastaa]

I would support to grant a temporary admin for you just to update those pages in the MediaWiki namespace, as you didn't get the global edit interface rigts (link). Though we have also few users with JS knowledge. I wonder how urgent those updates are? It seems there are quite many users with global interface editor rights, so most likely some of them will update those pages before than they will completely break? --Stryn (keskustelu) 31. toukokuuta 2016 kello 22.33 (EEST)Vastaa[vastaa]
It depends. They did this sort of thing at last year and everything was broken (1) so if those aren't fixed then everything will be broken. I am also happy if somebody is doing fix things so granting the admin right is ok for me (it helps that you are admin in svwiki and edits seems to be legit too [6]) However it would nice to get some list what should be changed (addOnloadHook, importscript, mwVariables, anything else?) I think that we should do also some list which gatgets are WONTFIX because they should be removed from gadgets.--Zache (keskustelu) 31. toukokuuta 2016 kello 22.57 (EEST)Vastaa[vastaa]

Articles for deletion[muokkaa wikitekstiä]

I want to file following articles for deletion:

This is outrageous and ridiculous. It's better the filmographies on voice acting go to the individual articles about actors, rather than having them consolidated into large chunks of list articles. JSH-alive (keskustelu) 12. kesäkuuta 2016 kello 11.57 (EEST)Vastaa[vastaa]

Reason for the merge was that contents of voice acting lists are less unsourced and editors who are editing them are ignoring the comments which other editors are writing to them. Also there is lot of editing from dynamic ip:s so it is not so easy to do discuss with editors of the voice actor articles anyway. Second problem is that it is not just ignoring the rules but there is problem with vandalism (least two known larger cases, eg. "Grodan Boll-vandalen" from svwiki which was editing the fiwiki too and "Poutapoukaman Eeli" vandal whose some of edits are most likely good but unsourced. However there is clear vandalism from "Poutapoukaman Eeli" too).
So the problem is that it is hard or impossible to know if the information in the lists are correct or not. Also same problem is with the new edits too (because edits are mostly from dynamic ip:s, unsourced etc). This problem with voice acting edits has has been also issue in the administrator notice board in recent years too.
Solution for this was to move voice acting lists from the actor articles to lists so we can clean up the individual actor articles. This is something which is important because they are mainly BLP:s (bioraphies of living people) and we try to keep them straight. Second reason is that in this way we can focus least part of voice acting edits to single articles and in this way those doesn't piss of the other editors like current ignoring the rules is doing. Third reason to merge them was to try to figure out what to do to those lists. One thing is to unify the contents of the different sublists and second is to try get some information about how differentiate the information about the roles which can be be checked from some source which cannot.
Anyway if you have ideas what we should do with he voice acting lists then you are welcome to discuss it in talk:Luettelo suomalaisten näyttelijöiden äänirooleista A-I or in Wikiprojekti_ääninäyttelijät wikiproject. Writing in english is perfectly fine and sorry about my bad english. --Zache (keskustelu) 12. kesäkuuta 2016 kello 12.51 (EEST)Vastaa[vastaa]

Hi. I am from the United States. I need more info on The Thundermans, for an immigrant friend who loves the show. I don't know Finnish, so here's the page.

Add more info on the show, the plot, each character, and the cast, and the Haunted Thundermans and Danger & Thunder crossovers. Add lots of spoilers, as the show is not aired in Finland. Also, I want the article to closely mirror the English ( and French ( pages. There is a machine translated page about Phoebe (a character), that needs editing, a picture, and more info. Also create pages for actors Jack Griffo and Kira Kosarin, with pictures and in-depth info.

A lot of pages need to be in-depth as well, not just this one. One person on a language site has said, "How come they can have a variety of long and in-depth pages about rock music, video games, and anime, but not about my favorite show, comic books, superheroes, R&B artists, albums, and music, and everyday items (such as anglophobia, some medical terms and American culture)?"

This is true about the Finnish Wikipedia. They have so many in-depth pages, and even stub pages, about rock music and video games, and not much pages about everything else. The stereotype that everyone in Finland likes rock music and video games is not true.

Hi! You can add your article wishes to the list of requested articles if you know a proper translation for article's name. Sipulirenkaat and Munarulla belong to the "Ruoka ja juoma" (Food and drink) section. –Samoasambia 7. tammikuuta 2017 kello 19.35 (EET)Vastaa[vastaa]

Update required: Ulla Ehrensvärd, Swedish professor[muokkaa wikitekstiä]


You have a page about Swedish art historian Ulla Ehrensvärd. I just wanted to tell you that there is now a Swedish biography as well: Please note that she died in 2015, so the Finnish page needs to be updated. Greetings a neighbour in the west!

Done. The Finnish article now also says she died in 2015. --Lentokonefani asiaa? | syntilista 19. toukokuuta 2017 kello 22.27 (EEST)Vastaa[vastaa]

Groot, applesauce, and The Thundermans[muokkaa wikitekstiä]

Greetings from the US!

Can someone translate these articles from the English wikipedia to the Finnish one? My immigrant friend is trying to learn English, so she wants to compare wikis of her favorite things. It would be nice if the articles had pictures, had as much details as the original English version, and for The Thundermans, spoilers.

It's pathetic that there isn't a page for applesauce (omenasose). Applesauce is an everyday item. My friend loves applesauce, and she wants to learn more about it in Finnish.

If anyone wants the English wikis for reference, here they are.

I feel so bad that I don't know Finnish! I hope these articles are added soon.  –Kommentin jätti Thunderman2020 (keskustelu – muokkaukset) 28. kesäkuuta 2017 kello 06:14 (EEST)‎

Capitalisation (and punctuation) of Finnish title[muokkaa wikitekstiä]

An article about 2017's theatrical My Little Pony film is currently titled My Little Pony: Elokuva, but a page from Nordisk Film (distributor in the Nordics, including Finland), and a result at KAVI's classification DB say it's My Little Pony Elokuva. So, how should the title stylised?

  • My Little Pony Elokuva
  • My Little Pony elokuva
  • My Little Pony: Elokuva
  • My Little Pony -elokuva

AFAIK we use the same name here as Elonet, and it also says My Little Pony Elokuva], which is of course grammatically incorrect. Stryn (keskustelu) 14. lokakuuta 2017 kello 18.31 (EEST)Vastaa[vastaa]
Stryn: Käytäntökeskusteluja ei pidä piilottaa vääriin osastoihin. Tätä harva varmasti lukee. Mutta huomautan, että Elokuva-sana on alaotsikko, kuten mainoksista ja Imdb:stä näkee, ja alaotsikot erotetaan Wikipediassa aina jollakin välimerkillä. Itse en enää juuri kirjoita elokuvista, mutta koska varsinkin tietokirjoilla on hyvin yleisesti alaotsikko, sen perusteella on helppo todeta mikä Wikipedian käytäntö on. So we use colon or ndash. --Abc10 (keskustelu) 14. lokakuuta 2017 kello 19.20 (EEST)Vastaa[vastaa]

@Stryn: Can you explain why My Little Pony Elokuva (without a colon) would be grammatically incorrect in Finnish? JSH-alive (keskustelu) 14. lokakuuta 2017 kello 21.40 (EEST)Vastaa[vastaa]
Sorry I can't explain it in English, hardly I can explain in Finnish either. "Elokuva" is not a proper noun so it must be written with a small first letter. The correct name for the article would be "My Little Pony -elokuva" or "My Little Pony (elokuva)", as "elokuva" is not actually part of the movie's title, as Abc10 said. PS, pings still are not working (phab:T177825). Stryn (keskustelu) 14. lokakuuta 2017 kello 23.22 (EEST)Vastaa[vastaa]
Surely "Elokuva" can be a proper noun in Finnish, justa like "Maalaus" is the title name given to numerous individual paintings by Finnish painters. For example, perhaps the film makers (or distributors) would like to allude to the famous "Elokuva" described by Jean Cocteau: ”Eläköön nuori muusa nimeltä Elokuva, koska sillä on hallussaan unen mysteeri ja sen avulla epätodellinen muuttuu todelliseksi.” (Jean Cocteau, 1959, Finnish translation given by KAVI). ¬Antilope 15. lokakuuta 2017 kello 02.43 (EEST)Vastaa[vastaa]
I'm sure "Elokuva" is a part of the title, just like Lego Elokuva, Lego Batman Elokuva and Lego Ninjago Elokuva. JSH-alive (keskustelu) 15. lokakuuta 2017 kello 14.17 (EEST)Vastaa[vastaa]

WikiScienceCompetition 2017[muokkaa wikitekstiä]

Hi! Wiki Science Competition has started, sitenotices have appeared for sure in Spain, Austria, Russian Federation, USA and Ukraine, and Italy will be join very soon with a massive national campaign.

As a member of the academic committee I did my best to reduce the gap between countries both in the composition of the juries and now in the outreach. I did inform many platforms (enwiki, eswiki, frwiki) during the preparation of the event, now I am informing all national institutions, associations and federations of science and technology I can contact, especially those located in countries without national juries (so, also in Finland) and I am posting notes on LinkedIn groups everyday, and I am contacting national chapters and user groups.. and so on. That's why I am here.

We prepared banners for many countries but on meta they say it is not wise to use them all, so if you want to use the style and do one here on your wiki for few days, just let us know. In your case the banner is not country-specific so it is generic.

Otherwise, if you have social media and you want to inform your friends and colleagues, the twitter hashtags are #WSC2017, #WikiScience2017, #WikiScience

Thank you in advance and whatever you do(join, inform, ignore) have fun!Alexmar983 (keskustelu) 4. marraskuuta 2017 kello 07.57 (EET)Vastaa[vastaa]

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)Vastaa[vastaa]
