Hi. Thanks for all the castle articles! The easy way to link to an article on the kings of England/GB/UK (and we have articles on most of them, now) is [[kingname o Loegr]] up to 1603, [[kingname o Prydain Mawr]] up to Queen Anne, then [[kingname o'r Deyrnas Unedig]], for example [[Edward I o Loegr|Edward I]] comes to mind, for some reason :). All the best, Arwel 11:02, 28 Ebr 2004 (UTC)

Thanks! I wasn't aware of that... I'll go and check up the castles! --Okapi 12:01, 28 Ebr 2004 (UTC)


Hi there. I've noticed you seem to have a problem with directions in a few articles :) "Dwyrain" is east, "Gorllewin" is west! -- Arwel 10:02, 4 Mai 2004 (UTC)

Hi. I just popped in and was a bit confused about what's going on with Dwrgi and Dwrgi (mamal)! If you want Dwrgi deleted so you can move the mamal back, just ask! -- Arwel 01:08, 7 Gor 2004 (UTC)

InfoboxesGolygu

Hi Okapi, esgusoda i am switching to English. I've noticed you put stubs for a number of animal articles (and country articles too?). I know next to nothing about infoboxes - are they linked to a master template somewhere? It's just that for the animals, "binomial name" should probably be "enw binomial"; for the countries "ffonio côd" should be "côd ffonio/galw". Can they just be changed at somewhere central? hwyl, Bibl 18:30, 2 Aws 2004 (UTC)

Fi eto. Taxonomy isn't one of my strong points, but I found this[2] which uses "dosbarthiad" for division, which sounds reasonable, but seems weird above "dosbarth". Also, order=urdd not trefn, and species=rhywogaeth (genus=llwyth I suppose). I'll do a bit of (reversible) mutilation on the template, but I'll save changing name to enw for another day :-) --Bibl 23:50, 2 Aws 2004 (UTC)
<xtra edit> --I like the idea of central storage of stock (non-wiki)"templates" for things. Standardisation makes things tidier (and easier too). I don't know enough about the software & space to fiddle about though - is it a matter of making a copy of the coding for the taxoboxes and dumping in non-article-space or somewhere? --Bibl 00:00, 3 Aws 2004 (UTC)

Hi Okapi, I altered the existing infobox and saved at nodyn:dosbarthiad biolegol (planhigyn). Comments very welcome. The usage in articles is identical except for an extra field to put in a <br>'ed list of the species (see eirlys - it's the only one I've changed so far). I'll make another one for (anifail), then, if there aren't any objections, I'll start replacing the existent infoboxes... I don't know whether to put Enw(au) Lladin or Rhywogaeth(au) (species, like in the English Wiki). But if it's in the Nodyn, it won't be a problem to alter whenever. Hwyl, Bibl 11:30, 4 Aws 2004 (UTC)

Diolch am yr ymateb! You make a very good point. It's not really feasible to make a load of specialised taxoboxes. Maybe a basic table as a Nodyn, then use {{subst:basic_table}} (which I don't know how to apply, since it seems not to work. Is there a Cymraeg fersiwn o "subst"). Or maybe make them modular, with a little template for each of (sub/super)order etc, and just stitch them together as necessary? I'm still learning & playing with tables, so I don't know how it would work.
You're right that the basic taxobox should have a species level. Eirlys has the same format as Snowdrop now, with a list of species (because"snowdrops" are a genus, hence the list of species). If the article is about a species, perhaps it could give links to other species in the same genus; Article about an order, gives links to other orders in the same class? That sounds a bit too ambitious though. I'll lurk around in the taxonomy project on Wikipedia to try and get some ideas. --Bibl 16:11, 4 Aws 2004 (UTC)
<xtra edit> 'Nes i ymweld a'r brosiect "Tree of Life", ac y maent yn defnyddio system modiwlog. Mae 'na tue 50 Nodyn yn y prosiect, ond nid yw pob un yn anghenrheidiol. Wi'n mynd i ddechrau arbrofi 'da nhw yn fy "personal space" i weld os allai trosglwyddo'r holl system i'r Wicipedia. Mae'n edrych yn neis iawn. --Bibl 17:34, 4 Aws 2004 (UTC)
<xtra xtra edit> Wi di creu Nodyn:Binomial name (=[[Enw Lladin]] am nawr). Bydd e'n haws defnyddio bot i wneud "find/replace" yn rhoi "{{Binomial name}}" yn lle pob "Binomial name"? Does dim clem 'da fi sut mae botiau yn gweithio...:) --Bibl 18:57, 4 Aws 2004 (UTC)
S'mae. The <br> trick sort of works, but it looks like there's more than one order/ multiple names for the same order. I'm still thrashing away at the code to try and get a modular version working (then there could be however many ranks & sub/super-ranks as anyone could ever need!). I think I'm going to give up for the evening - but I'm enjoying the challenge, so I'll stick with it for a couple more days until I get really fed up. Maybe by then the Tree of Life people will have a definitive version anyway :-D --Bibl 23:04, 4 Aws 2004 (UTC)

Translation of the weekGolygu

Currently we have started a project on meta.wikipedia to get an article translated in as many wikipedias as possible every week. The article will be about a subject that usually gets rarely translated and has a lot of links to other subjects. Currently we have no-one to translate in your language. If someone is interested to participate please see: meta:Translation of the week You can also submit articles from your own languages there that you think deserve translation, but have a small chance of it. The articles must not be to short and not to long and have lots of links to possible other articles! en:user:Waerth

Answers to a few questionsGolygu

Hi, It should be "y gwyddoniadur rhydd" - the point of "the free encyclopedia" is that it's "free as in speech, not as in beer", while "rhad" does have the principal connotation of "cheap"! I've just changed the tagline back.

As for Urban75, I was thinking it was a bit spammish, and doesn't have much apparent connection with Wales, and I don't know who Mike Slocombe is anyway. I wonder if there's a way of expanding it somehow, the en: version is only a little more informative.... -- Arwel 14:23, 9 Ion 2005 (UTC)

Dewi SantGolygu

Argh! You're right that we should delete the copyvio versions -- unfortunately we have no way to do this ourselves - we'll have to call for developer assistance. That's basically all versions from the 18th Feb., except the oldest, OK? -- Arwel 11:43, 21 Chwe 2005 (UTC)

Aha! I've just been told how to do it. Delete the article, then undelete it - the undelete screen has tickboxes against each version, so you can choose which versions to restore. I've just done it for Dewi Sant. -- Arwel 12:33, 21 Chwe 2005 (UTC)

And another question...Golygu

Arwel, I hope I'm not getting on your nerves by requesting the impossible all the time - but I couldn't help noticing that the Llythrennau acennog on :en can be introduced into the text by clicking on them. That would be a very nice and useful feature to have on :cy, don't you think? But do you know to do that? *just wondering...* --Okapi 14:36, 21 Chwe 2005 (UTC)

TranslatingGolygu

Hello! I do not myself speak Welsh- but am atempting to learn. I have recently discovered Wikipedia and have contributed to some articals. I would really want these articals translated into Welsh, with the hope of (at least indirectly) contributing to the Welsh side. I recognize that you are a prolific contributer yourself, but I was hoping that you might translate some of my articals for me. Or maybe direct me to someone who might like to translate? Arwel directed me to you. en:user:Drachenfyre

Wicipedia DUGolygu

Wikimedians in the United Kingdom are working to set up a chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation, which will aid and encourage people to collect, develop and effectively disseminate knowledge. A board of five members has been elected, and a company has now been set up. Membership applications are now invited, and will be processed as soon as we have a bank account. The organisation needs the support and involvement of people like you.

So far, most participants have been based on English-language projects, but we want to ensure that we work with and for Wikimedians in all languages. As Wicipedia yn Gymraeg is an important language native to the UK, we are making contact with you.

We need to know what a new UK chapter can do to assist your project, and how we can best work together to make that happen. We are also looking for people who can translate short pieces of text, such as the first paragraph of this message, to help publicise the activities of the chapter.

Please do comment, make suggestions, and feel free to ask us any questions, whether here, on MetaWiki, or on the wikimedia-uk mailing list. AndrewRT 23:06, 1 Rhagfyr 2008 (UTC)
