TGcoa – I am sure we both want the same thing, to see that Irish thrives. However we clearly have different approaches on how to achieve this via Vicipeid. I sense that you’d rather see the project full of articles with perfect grammar, whereas I would rather see articles exist, whatever the standard of grammar they have been written in.
Our role is to inspire others to contribute. They see the wiki, they see an article that interests them, they may decide to add to or improve it. It’s not ego. It’s about the bigger picture, that young and future Irish speakers will grow up with a Wikipedia that aids them. Lots of articles that I have created have been filled in by others, which shows that other people’s interest have been sparked. For the project to be truly successful, all of our articles that we have created will have been completely improved and rewritten by many others with better grammar than us. It will show that we have achieved what we have set out to do.
By being pedantic about grammar and harassing other contributors about it has the opposite effect and limits what can be achieved. If some glaring example of errant grammar really annoys you either correct it or learn to ignore it. Neither of us possesses a perfect level of grammar and there is always someone out there more proficient than us out there who will correct our mistakes, such as when your contribution [[Liosta gcuraidh snucair an domhain]] was changed to [[Liosta churaidh snucair an domhain]]. You have added lots of valuable information to articles, why waste your time and energy haranguing others about minor details?
