Scots[eedit soorce]

"If yer disruptive behavior continues much mair, ye mey be blockit wioot further wairnin. This is the Scots Wikipaedia, yer addeetions were nae in Scots. --AmaryllisGardener talk 22:46, 3 Dizember 2014 (UTC)"

I can tell you that is what Scots is really like. I'm a native speaker, Scots is my first language, I learned English when I started school. I can see your not a native speaker so I can assure that that is the real Scots language I wrote in. the message you sent me above is not in Scots but in 'Scottified English'. Your a learner so I can understand why but writing Wikipedia articles in the Scottified English and passing it off as Scots really doesn't help the view that Scots is an English dialect. I speak Scots everyday and it's nothing like that. I'll translate your message into Scots to show you: "Gyn ȝur òngauns fòl, ȝul by bard wy no bein telt. þys ys y Skòts Wykypeidea, ȝur pytyns wurnai yn Skòts. The orthography used is the Standard Scots Orthography. The resources for learning Scots are poor as I've had a look at them myself so I can see the difficulties some people will have with learning Scots. As a native speaker and someone who is studying the history of Scots I'd be more than happy to teach you and help you improve your Scots and hopefully contribute more in ways that I can. — Forerin nae adheebit commend addit bi Amadan1995 (talkcontribs)

I'm not sure what to tell you. I may be American, but I've seen a lot of native Scots speakers contribute here. And their contributions were similar to mine. --AmaryllisGardener talk 16:24, 4 Dizember 2014 (UTC)

I mean no offense to yourself, Its good to see that someone is trying to put Scots on Wikipedia. But it is nothing like the real language I speak and hear everyday. On here I see English with a Scottish twist, many Scots words are replaced with English words with a changed spelling e.g 'addition' in Scots is 'pytyn' not 'addeetion'. And the grammar is basicly English which ignores a big part of what Scots is and the spelling used is a highly iregular one e.g 'nae' and 'mair' both have the phoneme /e/ yet represent it differently. (Standard Scots Orthography: 'nai' and 'mair')There is a standard spelling now which has been created to fit Scots, drawing influence from Scots texts and some modifications to better represent Scots vowels and such, I tried to include a link to a guide for it but I couldn't C+P it here for some reason. I don't mean to come off as rude and apologies if I do. But the 'Scottified English' here makes people think that Scots is a mere English dialect (I've heard this from a few non speakers who read the articles here). I want to help the language used here to show the real Scots for the language it is. It'd be an honour if I can contribute.

Wikidata[eedit soorce]

Thanks for adding lots of new articles to this Wikipedia :) Just so you are aware, if you want to connect the articles you create to Wikipeidas in other languages you can use Wikidata. If you don't connect your new article to Wikidata, it will appear at Special:UnconnectedPages, in case you want to review them later. I've been working through the backlog there to make sure as many Scots articles are connected to other Wikipedias as possible. If you need any Wikidata help, I'll be happy to advise. Cheers!

Could you improve this page? I only know a little bit (or wee bit) of Scots. Make sure it's 100% translated from the English article. By that I mean, if part of it is written in English please help me translate it. I'm not saying it has to be as long as the English article but make sure it's all written in Scots.

@TDKR Chicago 101: Diego Grez added that as a placeholder. Strangely I didn't see your message above (about Ronald Reagan) until now. It should be featurable. Definitely a step up from what was "featurable" in 2007 (i.e. Releegion, which is unreferenced). I can add some more lead to it, promote it, and have it set up to be this month's FA. BTW, thanks for all your work on the Presidents of the United States. --AmaryllisGardener talk 12:31, 3 Juin 2014 (UTC)

Your temporary access is going to expire soon[eedit soorce]

Hello, you were granted temporary adminship in this wiki which is going to expire in a few days. Just to let you know that if you want to continue as an administrator here, you need to request an extension on stewards' permission request page on Meta-Wiki. Usually you only have to make a local announcement on your local village pump or request for adminship page, and if there are no objections after no less than three days, your request will be fulfilled. Additionally, if you think the community is big enough to elect a permanent administrator, you can place a local request here for a permanent adminship, so stewards can grant you the permanent access. Please ask me or any other steward if you have any questions. Thank you! Shanmugamp7 (tauk) 12:36, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

May update[eedit soorce]

Hey Amaryllis! Happy May! I found that the next FA should be Robbie Williams. Maybe you can also create the Juin FA template which the article will be George H. W. Bush. The next featurt image should be this one -> [5]. Maybe the DYK can be from the English Wikipedia. Sorry for the bother! --TDKR Chicago 101 (tauk) 18:40, 2 Mey 2015 (UTC)

Assuming you mean when does the RfA ends, the 21st of this month. When it ends, I'll go to meta:Steward requests/Permissions and request that adminship be given to you if all you have is support. If they don't give you permanent adminship because of lack of support (like one or two supports) then they might can give you temporary adminship that can be renewed every once in a while. I'm a temporary admin and I've had to request it three times (you have to have an RfA every time you want it renewed). The time period that you have adminship before having to renew gets longer every time, though, currently I'm on a year renewal and I'll have to renew it this August. --AmaryllisGardener talk 21:45, 15 Mey 2015 (UTC)

Keep an eye out for me[eedit soorce]

Dear Amaryllis. If you're busy then ignore this, but I'm not going to be active from May 28 through June 1 because of a brief vacation. I was wondering if you can update the main page when June 1st comes around. Here's what I suggest: Update the In the News section from the English Wikipedia. Keep the old Did you knows. Add George H. W. Bush to FA. And add this image -> [6] should be the next featured image. If you have any opposes feel free. Thanks a bunch old friend! --TDKR Chicago 101 (tauk) 00:01, 28 Mey 2015 (UTC)

I want to help out[eedit soorce]

Yes, but I'm not speaking Scots. This wiki is so cool - I like how it is promoting the rights of Scots as its own language as distinct from just another dialect of English, and I completely agree. Also I hate all those trolls and what they say. Can I help out with stuff, despite not speaking Scots? (For instance, I can write articles in English, and you can translate them into Scots when you have time. OK? IllogicMink (tauk) 23:39, 7 Juin 2015 (UTC)

@IllogicMink: Sure, I can translate them (maybe limit it to one a day or so). I come on here every day, so it should be fine. It's always nice to see a new user here that wants to help the wiki instead of hurt it. :) --AmaryllisGardener talk 00:49, 8 Juin 2015 (UTC)

I'll get working on it. As for the picture, I must oppose having that picture as the POTM, seems a bit controversial, and it isn't of the best quality. I think File:Caracal Caracal-001.jpg (FP, POTD) seems like a good pick for the POTM. Hope you don't mind. Regards, --AmaryllisGardener talk 22:48, 1 Julie 2015 (UTC)

Hello, the temporary access you requested on this wiki has expired. Just to let you know that If you want it back, feel free to make a local announcement and open a new request on stewards' permission request page on Meta-Wiki later.

Mercat Cross[eedit soorce]

Hello, I added a poll for possibly adding the flood flag to ScoWp here, if you'd like to leave a comment.

As a side note, I happened to see that the section on Lsjbot seemed to have gathered nothing but support, but was never implemented? This was during my last wikibreak, so I'm just curious what may have stalled that project, if anything? Avicennasis (tauk) 09:50, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

I emailed the operator of Lsjbot, he gave me files to translate, and I wasn't sure exactly how to do it, so after a while, I forgot about it. I'll try to have another look at them and if I still can't figure it out, I'll post something to the Mercat Cross and ask native or advanced Scots speakers if they'd be kind enough to do it. --AmaryllisGardener talk 13:34, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Help with translation[eedit soorce]

Hello, I'm writing this to offer assistance with editing articles into Scots. I'm a native speaker of Scots and I live in a Scots community. My one issue with Scots Wikipedia is that it resembles nothing like the Scots language. I mean no offense but Scots Wikipedia isn't taken seriously by native speakers as it looks like English with modified spelling and the translations look like word for word translations from English. As a native when I read Scots Wikipedia it feels like I'm reading English in a Scottish accent rather than my Scots tongue due to tge heavy use of English words in the articles not present in Scots (and lack of Scots words themselves). Scots grammar and syntax can vary a lot from English and the writings here don't show that. I've been documenting the grammar and phonology of my dialect of Scots and I'm willing to share my knowledge and help you learn Scots. To show an example I've translated a paragraph from Scots Wikipedia into native Scots:

From the wikipedia: "Elephants are lairge land mammals o the order Proboscidea an the faimlie Elephantidae. Thare are twa bidin spece: the African Bush an the Asie Elephant (alsa cried aes the Indian Elephant). Ither spece hae acome extinct langsyne the last ice aige, the Mammoths bein the best-known o these. Thay war ance classified alang wi ither thick skinned ainimals in a nou invalid order, Pachydermata"

Native Scots: "Opsr mucil lan baists fe i Proboscidea ratur in fe i Elphantidae faimle. þurs two cins: i Efrics op in i Aischin op (caud i Inde op ano). Iður cins deid siȝn i hinmaist iȝs aij, i Mamifsr i maist cet ȝins. We iður gute huiylit baists þe wur pit in i rang ratur, nú cet te bi rang, Pachydermata"

@Amadan1995: Well, what you have there looks more like Scottish Gaelic or Irish. What we go by overall is the Online Scots Dictionary. --AmaryllisGardener talk 22:08, 23 Apryle 2016 (UTC)

Guide to the orthography: https://imgur.com/a/DoOTj. The above example was in my native Scots as it is actually spoken. I wrote this message because the language on this Wikipedia is nothing to how we actually speak it. A forgivable thing as learning materials, such as the DSL teach an extremely anglicised language that bears no resemblance to Scots from natives. A result of that is writings that use it look like half gibberish to actual speakers (Scots Wikipedia is never to rarely consumed in Scots speaking areas). I hope to give native Scots more representation so that native speakers will use Wikipedia more and that learners can learn legible Scots. I don't many any offense but if the Scots used here improves it would help spread usage of Scots Wikipedia and information on native usage.

@Amadan1995: Well, I'm not the only editor here, there were native Scots speakers that wrote like it is on here before me. --AmaryllisGardener talk 22:34, 23 Apryle 2016 (UTC)

I just can't help but notice how very anglicised the writings here are. It's not unheard for people to base their from English as the only language that we are taught to write is English. An unfortunate effect is it distances written language from actual speech. There is so much about the language that gets lost like noun cases, word order, sentence structure, Nominal TAM clitics, verbal clitic marking and big chunk of vocabulary. When stripped bare of this and written based off English it gives the effect of making look like an English dialect, which is what many claim in language-dialect arguments when they mention the Wikipedia. A lot of pages here are easy to tell when written by a non-native. I can give help with grammar and vocabulary.
