Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globallyCokic

Please help translate to your language

Hello everyone,

I apologize for posting in English. I would like to inform everyone that I created a new global request for comment (GRFC) at Meta Wiki, which may affect your project: m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

In this GRFC, I propose that two-project shortcuts for project names will become a default alias for the project namespace. For instance, on all Wikipedias, WP will be an alias to the Wikipedia: namespace (and similar for other projects). Full list is available in the GRFC.

This is already the case for Wikivoyages, and many individual projects asked for this alias to be implemented. I believe this makes it easier to access the materials in the project namespace, as well as creating shortcuts like WP:NPOV, as well as helps new projects to use this feature, without having to figure out how to request site configuration changes first.

As far as I can see, Wikipedia currently does not have such an alias set. This means that such an alias will be set for you, if the GRFC is accepted by the global community.

I would like to ask all community members to participate in the request for comment at Meta-Wiki, see m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions about this proposal.

Best regards,

New stubs added (July 2021)Cokic

Hello everyone,

Sorry for the English, since I don't actually write Dinka fluently. I just know the orthography and some basic words.

I have just added a few hundred new stubs to the Dinka Wikipedia, sourced from dictionary entries in Brisco and Blench (2006).

Here are some of the new categories and their respective articles that I have started. I have tried my best to link them to the correct Wikidata items. They don't have any text yet, just infoboxes, pictures, and links. We will need editors to add text and content to the articles, so that we can have a nice-looking encyclopedia instead of just a picture dictionary (which is a good start though).

I also have a user subpage with more words at:

Additional categories can be found at:

This Swadesh list of the Rek dialect of Dinka may also be useful:

Be sure to use dictionaries such as the Dinka dictionary by Brisco and Blench (2006). If the entries in there are are incorrect, you can make a note of it and put the correct one on Wikipedia instead.

Brisco, Mike and Roger Blench. 2006. English to Dinka Glossary: Derived from SIL International's 2005 Draft Dinka-English Dictionary. Kay Williamson Educational Foundation / SIL International.

If you want to start new articles, be sure to:

  1. Add {{Databox}} on top
  2. Link the Dinka article to other Wikipedia language editions
  3. Add categories (bekätakthook)
  4. Add references (how do you say "references" in Dinka? translation needed)

Thank you and happy editing! Sabon Harshe (jam) 18:21, 26 Pɛnëdhorou 2021 (CAT)
