Fox, servin the Scots wiki since Apryle 10, 2007

'Allo, an welcome tae ma uiserpage!

Feel free tae speir ony, A'll help as best A can.

Gin ye da unnerstaund Scots, ye micht wint tae tak a keek at ma Inglis uiserpage, whaur ye can speir aboot onything in Inglis. But for this Wikipaedia, speir here.

A'm a sysop on this Wiki, sae A can talk aboot onything relatin tae that.

A'm WBOSITG on mony ither Wikimedia sites, but the ones A contreibute tae this ane, the Inglis Wikipedia, Inglis Wikinews, an Commons.

Adminship[eedit soorce]

Aye aye OATN,

If naebody votes than in theory naething happens. But the ae reason A'v no votit is acause (like A explained there an here) A'm no shuir onie sort o votin procedure is necessar or helpfu for a sma' wiki like oors. A dinna see sairious contreebutors haein free an easy access tae admin pouers as bein a problem an A'm shuir the commonty (or me, in ma quasi-benevolent-dictator poseetion as bureaucrat) willna hae onie problems wirkin oot wha's a sairious contreebutor an wha's no. Sae as faur as A'm concerned ye cuid hae admin pouers the nou -- ye'r obviously sairious an willin tae pit in the wark -- but syne a) ye hiv stairtit a vote, b) 84.135 haes votit agin ye an c) naebody's gien me onie feedback (positive or negative) on ma proposed leeberal adminship policy A'm no shuir whit tae dae. Sairy, A'm no wantin tae be unhelpfu but that's hou A see it. Cheers, Mendor 16:52, 18 Apryle 2007 (UTC)

Scots Wiktionary[eedit soorce]

  • Whit's the pynt? It comes ower as sair tyauve juist tae dae a guid bit darg that's syne been duin. Is the DSl or the Online Scots Dictionary no guid eneuch? Nae tae mention the umpteen glossars an wird-lists that's skailt ower the wab. Jimmy 09:15, 13 Juin 2007 (UTC)
    • Weel -- whit's the pynt in the English Wiktionary? This is a sairious quaisten, no rhetoric. A'm no shuir A see the pynt in onie o the Wiktionary projects masel. Encyclopedias is mair suitit tae Wikis nor dictionaries is A'v aye thocht. Is the idea juist tae big a free resoorce ("free" in the GFDL sense)? Mendor 15:14, 13 Juin 2007 (UTC)
    • The Inglis anes fer airticles that ar juist aboot wairds an nae lang airticles. Like Wikipaedia, but a dictionary. OchAyeTheNoo 19:29, 13 Juin 2007 (UTC)
  • A'd be for it if somebody gies us an answer aboot whit the pynt in Wiktionaries is. Mendor 15:14, 13 Juin 2007 (UTC)
  • Eh've niver uised the Inglis Wiktionary - niver seen the pynt. An fir Scots, Eh've goat a braa copy ae the Concise Scots Dictionary at hame :-) Gin ye're wantin to write ane, gaun yersel, bit Eh'm no shuir Eh'll help oot much - the wikipedia's mair ma style. Bazza 16:37, 13 Juin 2007 (UTC)
  • A'm gonnae try it mesel (wi Derek) an see how it gaes. OchAyeTheNoo 19:44, 13 Juin 2007 (UTC)

Weel, the pynt tae me is that Wiktionary entries can be uised as the foond for a GDFL machine readable dictionar. An that's needed for machine intelligence an machine translation wark. It's guid for that sin it's cross-linked, processable, an free. There michtna be an absolute need for anither dictionar whan we hae the (copyrichted) DSL, Webster's, an aw the lave but then there isna an absolute need for anither encyclopaedia (in ony language) naether sin we hae Britannica, Encarta, etc. richt noo. Nanetheless here we are, warkin on the Scots Wikipaedia. A dinna see muckle differ atween risin the profile o Scots throu Wiktionary an daein it throu Wikipaedia. Tae me the mair written Scots on the wab, the better. -- Derek Ross | News 06:03, 14 Juin 2007 (UTC)

  • Weel, Ah gree wi yiz, an shuir, the mair Scots on the wab the better. An, gin ye can get it startit, ither bodies'll mibbes help an aw, an the mair chance fowk hae ae uisin their ain leid the better. Bazza 07:41, 14 Juin 2007 (UTC)

Hello[eedit soorce]

Hi OchAyeTheNoo. I think you made a bot request on the english wikipedia. I think I might be able to help you. I don't write/speak Scottish, but I can read it pretty well. Could you please describe what you want the bot to do? Wikihermit 18:25, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

Hey. I'm going to reply here, even though you have an English account. I would like the bot to create categories for articles on the main page. The categories would preferably be entitled the same as the heading they are under. I know this could be done by hand, but I would prefer a bot to do it, as it would be easier and also the bot may be useful later for similar tasks. Thanks a lot, WikiHermit. OchAyeTheNoo 18:45, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
Okay, so you want all articles that appear on the main page to be in category? What do you want to call the category? Do you have a list of pages that have been on the main page? Thanks! Wikihermit 21:04, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
Well, kind of, see what I would like is that all pages under "Scotland" to be in the "Scotland" category, and so on and so forth. Thanks again OchAyeTheNoo 18:03, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

Congratulations on your conditional project approval![eedit soorce]

Dear OchAyeTheNoo. On Meta's Requests for new languages I read that you have recently supported a request for a new language project that has now been conditionally approved. Congratulations on that approval! I hope your community can make something wonderful out of it.

One of the requirements for getting from a conditional approval to a complete project with its own wiki is that the interface for MediaWiki for that language has been sufficiently localised. I would like to ask you to check the localisation statistics for the languages you are able to contribute to, and if you are willing, invite you to visit Betawiki, where you can contribute to improving the localisation for those languages. On Betawiki, users contribute to the MediaWiki localisation of more than 70 languages every month. Please do not hesitate to drop me a note there if you have any questions. Cheers! Siebrand 22:56, 22 Dizember 2007 (UTC)

That's braw, Siebrand, thanks a lot! OchAyeTheNoo 13:56, 24 Dizember 2007 (UTC)

Merry Christmas, OchAyeTheNoo!!![eedit soorce]

Dear OchAyeTheNoo!

Could you please help me translate This article for the Scots (.sco) Wikipedia. Even if you could help with a one or two-sentence stub would be great since it would help to serve as a basis for future expansion.

This would mean the world to me. Merry Christmas, thanks a million!!! ;)
