Thanks for welcoming new contributors. Just a thought... as we're seeing many new contributors to this wiki that probably have little wiki experience, it may be helpful if you give them a little more guidance on how to add a Babel template. I would suggest to add the exact code that they can just copy-paste for 2 or 3 scenarios (if you speak a little Scots... if you're a native speaker... if you have profesisonal knowledge... ). The page you link to is unfortunately rather extensive and overwhelming :) Thanks again, keep up the good work. Effeietsanders (tauk) 23:40, 26 August 2020 (UTC)[Replie]

@Effeietsanders: Thanks. It needs improvement yes. Have actually made a suggestion to improve it here. Soothrhins (tauk) 07:52, 27 August 2020 (UTC)[Replie]

Editathon[eedit soorce]

Hey there. I'm working to support the group organising the editathon this weekend, drop me a line if you're interested? work email's on my profile. Sara Thomas (WMUK) (tauk) 09:16, 27 August 2020 (UTC)[Replie]

aaand I've just seen on meta that you're aware of the event, nevermind. Do still feel free to drop me a line though! Sara Thomas (WMUK) (tauk) 10:48, 27 August 2020 (UTC)[Replie]
(en) @Sara Thomas (WMUK): That's okay! There is a wheen of threads on this issue so no one person can be across it all! It might conflict with work, but I'll see what's going on and do what I can. You may have seen some Puckle Proposals (very much from a base-level-of-Wiki perspective) I've been suggesting/looking for help with. Are there any you can help with? Or get others to? Would be good to get some improvements on the go. Soothrhins (tauk) 13:33, 27 August 2020 (UTC)[Replie]
(en) Soothrhins there may be, aye. I'll make some enquiries and see what I can do. Infrastructure can be really helpful for smaller wikis... On the subject, are you familiar with wikidata at all? Translation of labels there would allow for the use of some tools here, which might be useful. I'm told that properties are a good place to start, happy to support if there's feeling here that it would be useful.Sara Thomas (WMUK) (tauk) 14:23, 27 August 2020 (UTC)[Replie]
(sco) Sara Thomas (WMUK) Av nae cloo on wikidata! Soothrhins (tauk) 14:29, 27 August 2020 (UTC)[Replie]
(en) Soothrhins ooooh, it's one of my favourite projects to edit in, being doing more and more recently. Structured linked data, language agnostic. I've been looking into how translating a set of basic terms & properties into Scots on Wikidata might allow this wiki to use some tools, things like Article Placeholder, and wikidata infoboxes. It'd obviously be up to the community to decide whether they'd like those things to happen, and have that discussion, but I just wondered if it might be the kind of thing that would help.Sara Thomas (WMUK) (tauk) 15:11, 27 August 2020 (UTC)[Replie]
@Sara Thomas (WMUK):Hope yous dinnae mind me jumpin in, but A'v been daen a wee bit o work ower on Wikidata, maistly related tae ma en.wiki editin. Wuid be keen tae hae a blether aboot how it cuid be uised tae help here. Cheers C1614 (tauk) 20:45, 27 August 2020 (UTC)[Replie]
(en) C1614 Hey there, sounds grand. Happy to chat here, or at Mercat Cross, or drop me a line on ma work email (link on userpage), whatever works for you :) Sara Thomas (WMUK) (tauk) 10:16, 28 August 2020 (UTC)[Replie]

Spellin[eedit soorce]

(in Inglis) Hi! Just wanted to point you in the direction of this topic regarding WP:AWB. If you let me know I can update Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser/Typos with any non-controversial fixes (or, if you see any we already have we can revert. Keep up the good work.

Templates[eedit soorce]

(in Inglis)Hi! I hope you are doing well - just to let you know I'll be doing some translations for some handy templates that I use in Enwiki. If any of them are a bit dodgy let me know - I'm trying to learn! Best Wishes, Lee Vilenski (taukcontribs) 10:24, 29 August 2020 (UTC)[Replie]

Cleanup help[eedit soorce]

Hello, I have been identified by at least one person on Meta as having been part of the problem here (specifically in having created the redirect that was the original version of Pheesicist, as well as edits I made to Robert Burns). I never, ever wanted that and am truly sorry for any harm I have done. I would like to do what I can to help going forward. I imagine that small, repetitive tasks, not involving heavy text editing, might be the way for me to do that, but I do not want to make any assumptions. If you have suggestions of things I can do to improve things, I would appreciate them. If the suggestion is, “no, just stay far away from Sco WP”, well, then fair enough. LadyofShalott (tauk) 18:57, 5 September 2020 (UTC)[Replie]

(en) @LadyofShalott: Hi, I (and most other Scots speakers/wiki editors I've encountered) aren't interested in pointing fingers for past mistakes made in good faith. Thanks for your offer of help. There will definitely be things to do, and we'll do our best to support you along the way (I had been noting things non-Scots speakers can do on the editathon page, but I think they are all done now). If it is your thing, there is a Discord server community where there are discussions on improvements to make (as well as channels where you can get help on your Scots skills if you are looking to learn more). soothrhins (tauk) 13:45, 8 September 2020 (UTC)[Replie]

Hello.[eedit soorce]

I juist noticed that ye deletit the Electoral Prince page I made, and wanted tae ask if it wis really nessecary considering it had literally anly juist been put up. I would have come back tae edit & improve it later. I won't lie, I'm a teeny bit annoyed :( and you deleted it due tae "nae content" now we both know that isn't true. (talk) 19:10, 20 September 2020 (UTC)[Replie]

Yo. The main point is the twa teetles are actually different (Electoral Prince wis the heir tae an Electorate, rather than a "Hereditary Prince wis eften the heir tae a duchy or principality like Monaco or Saxe-Coburg an Gotha) as opposed tae a Croun Prince(ss) as the heir tae a kinrick. That's all. Please bare with me as I am till learning an trying my best. :( ALSO I literally JUST remembered I translated the Electoral Prince article frae the German ane. Signed Tom ( (talk) 20:29, 20 September 2020 (UTC))[Replie]

Tom, just make an account. I'm begging you~ –MJLTauk 20:37, 20 September 2020 (UTC)[Replie]

@Corsicanwarrah: ither wey aroon, thank you for stairtin it! soothrhins (tauk) 21:23, 24 September 2020 (UTC)[Replie]
@Soothrhins: You're welcome! By the way, how is "forby" used? I know it's a Scots translation of "also" -- I'm looking to correct the grammatically incorrect usages of "an aa"... I'll leave correcting other Scotched English spellings of words and expanding articles to native Scots speakers... --Corsicanwarrah (tauk) 08:14, 25 September 2020 (UTC)[Replie]
@Corsicanwarrah: Was tagged in by soothrhins. The best analogue I can think of is using it as you would 'besides' in English. "X happent, forby Y" (X happened excepting Y) vs. "X happent, Y forby" (X happened, Y also happened). Entohist (tauk) 09:02, 25 September 2020 (UTC)[Replie]

I would like to expand the accessibility of the pages I have created by translating them into Scots, Welsh and Irish as this would make them accessible in all the native languages of the U.K.

(My apologies for writing in English.) Some of the user accounts listed in this have been busy on this wp too and might need to be added to the articles needing to be checked. -Yupik (tauk) 11:30, 25 November 2020 (UTC)[Replie]

(in Inglis) Next editathon[eedit soorce]

Hey there, as a previous attendee of a Scots Wiki editathon, I thought you might like to know about the December event, Sat 12 & Sun 13th. In addition to the usual wiki support, this month I'm really excited to say that we'll have language support in place from the Scots Language Centre, who'll be online between 12-3 on Zoom on Saturday with us to help with any of your queries.

Hope to see you there! Sara Thomas (WMUK) (tauk) 13:53, 8 Dizember 2020 (UTC)

(in Inglis) Sunday 13th December - extra zoom session with the Scots Language Centre![eedit soorce]

José María Téllez-Girón y Benavides, 7t o Osuna -> José María Téllez-Girón y Benavides, 7t Duke o Osuna[eedit soorce]

I am such an idiot I just realised the mistake I made regarding the above page. Would you mind moving the link to the latter for me at all? Sorry and thanks in advance. Signed Tom AKA (talk) 17:25, 23 December 2020 (UTC)[Replie]

I believe anyone can move pages. The problem here though is that there's not a single source on that page so it's not considered notable to this wiki; unless that's fixed it's just clutter and very likely to be removed when a VfD is started. my_hat_stinks (tauk) 17:56, 23 December 2020 (UTC)[Replie]

(in Inglis) January editathon[eedit soorce]

Just a wee reminder that the next scots wiki editathon takes place this weekend, Sat 30 & Sun 31 January. If you'd like help improving your written scots skills, then folks from the Scots Language Centre will be on Zoom on Saturday (15:00-17:00 GMT) and Sunday (12:00-14:00 GMT) to do some collaborative editing, and I'll be around to help with any wiki queries. Feedback last time was that the language support was really helpful (and fun!), and we'd love to see you. We're looking mainly at improving articles to do with politics, particularly articles about politicians.
