Wikimania 2016 scholarships ambassadors neededCuir in Eagar

Hello! Wikimania 2016 scholarships will soon be open; by the end of the week we'll form the committee and we need your help, see Scholarship committee for details.

If you want to carefully review nearly a thousand applications in January, you might be a perfect committee member. Otherwise, you can volunteer as "ambassador": you will observe all the committee activities, ensure that people from your language or project manage to apply for a scholarship, translate scholarship applications written in your language to English and so on. Ambassadors are allowed to ask for a scholarship, unlike committee members.

Your input requested on the proposed #FreeBassel banner campaignCuir in Eagar

This is a message regarding the proposed 2015 Free Bassel banner. Translations are available.

Hi everyone,

This is to inform all Wikimedia contributors that a straw poll seeking your involvement has just been started on Meta-Wiki.

As some of your might be aware, a small group of Wikimedia volunteers have proposed a banner campaign informing Wikipedia readers about the urgent situation of our fellow Wikipedian, open source software developer and Creative Commons activist, Bassel Khartabil. An exemplary banner and an explanatory page have now been prepared, and translated into about half a dozen languages by volunteer translators.

We are seeking your involvement to decide if the global Wikimedia community approves starting a banner campaign asking Wikipedia readers to call on the Syrian government to release Bassel from prison. We understand that a campaign like this would be unprecedented in Wikipedia's history, which is why we're seeking the widest possible consensus among the community.

Given Bassel's urgent situation and the resulting tight schedule, we ask everyone to get involved with the poll and the discussion to the widest possible extent, and to promote it among your communities as soon as possible.

(Apologies for writing in English; please kindly translate this message into your own language.)

Thank you for your participation!

MioncheartúCuir in Eagar

Ba chóir mioncheartú a dhéanamh ar an abairt seo: "Cuimhnigh nach bhfuil ach réamhamharc sa leathanach seo. Níl do chuid athruithe shábháilte fós!". "Sábháilte" an focal ceart, ar ndóigh. Colin Ryan (talk) 00:50, 12 Lúnasa 2015 (UTC)

An ceart agat, ar ndóigh. Tá mé ag iarraidh cearta aistriúcháin a fháil. B'fhéidir go bhfhéadfadh duine atá glactha acu cheana é a cheartú freisin. SeoMac (talk) 05:06, 12 Lúnasa 2015 (UTC)
Cheartaigh mé inniu é. Deirtear go dtógann sé tamall (fada, uaireanta) sula mbíonn an t-athrú le feiceáil. SeoMac (talk) 18:51, 14 Lúnasa 2015 (UTC)
 Y Déanta D'éirigh linn, feicim. GRMA as sin a iarraidh. Beidh sé níos éasca anois a leithéid a cheartú. SeoMac (talk) 05:10, 16 Lúnasa 2015 (UTC)

Correction of my profile in İrishCuir in Eagar

Dia dhuit! İ have my profile translated in İrish Gaelic, but İ don’t know if iťs 100% correct. Can you check it for any mistakes? This is the text:

Dia dhuit, is mise Josep Maria Roca Peña agus táim 20 mbliana d'aois.
Is as Barcelona dhom, as Catalonia, mar sin is Catalónach mé agus tá dóchas agam a bheidh Catalonia neamhspleách. Labhraím freisin an Spáinnis agus an Phortaingéilis, mar bhínn sa Phortaingéil ar feadh tamaill. Is maith liom go háirithe na trí sraitheanna sin: Star Trek, Code Lyoko agus Winx Club, agus tá vicí na sraitheanna sin agam i dteangacha éagasúla.
Má theastaíonn mé ag déanamh aistriú nó ceartúchán uait i  ,  ,  ,   , fág scéala dom le d'iarratas agus déanfaidh mé é, amháin má tá ag scríobh scéala uait i mo Bhalla Scéala.

Note that at the end of the second paragraph, İ’m talking about my wikis on Wikia which İ have in several languages. Thanks! --Josep Maria Roca Peña (talk) 14:12, 29 Meán Fómhair 2015 (UTC)
