B'fhéidir go bhfuil fhios agaibh cheana, ach tá suíomh nua seolta ar an bhfuil eolas cruinn le láil faoi logainmneacha na hÉireann - www.logainm.ie. Bain triail as. Tá an cuma ar an scéal go bhfuil beagnach gach rud clúdaithe acu. --Antóin 11:26, 11 Deireadh Fómhair 2008 (UTC)

Leathanach le luath-scriosadh

As I'm not very familiar with the "speedy delete" process even on the en: Wikipedia, and don't know where to find it (or if it even exists) here, could some kindly administrator please delete the (empty) page Picapica/cartlann0810 which I created by accident while attempting to save an archive talk page? Go raibh mile maith agaibh. -- Picapica 11:37, 6 Samhain 2008 (UTC)

Just tag with {{scrios}} or {{delete}} and someone will review... Guliolopez 11:45, 6 Samhain 2008 (UTC)

Greetings from cy

Sorry for the English, I don't speak Irish, want to learn though!

I'm from the Welsh wiki and I just wanted to say that I'm very impressed by the success of the other four Celtic Wikis, I didn't realise there were so many of them! It's great to see such a big online presence of the Celtic languages in what is such a hostile English world! Keep up the good work! 19:22, 26 Samhain 2008 (UTC)

Wikimedia UK

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 this Wikipedia is in a language used by a significant number of people in 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. Warofdreams 11:23, 1 Mí na Nollag 2008 (UTC)

Obair den chéad scoth, bígí bródúil as! Buíochas ar leith do Ghuliolopez agus Alison, atá anseo ar bonn laethúil ag cur rudaí in eagar agus ag feabhsú na leathanaigh. Leanaigí leis! --Antóin 07:27, 24 Feabhra 2009 (UTC)
Ar fheabhas ar fad! Comhghairdeachas libh. Faraor ní raibh deis agam féin mórán oibre a dhéanamh ar an Vicipéid le tamall anuas mar gheall ar chúinsí oibre. Tá sár-jab déanta agaibh an clochmhíle seo a shroichint. Nmacu 15:47, 3 Márta 2009 (UTC)
Go raibh maith agaibh leads. Ach nílim féin ró-sásta leis an "cloch-mhíle" seo. Is dócha gur sórt "wet blanket" nó "perfectionist" atá ionam (maybe PPH is rubbing off on me :) ), ach cheapaim nach bhfuil a lán do na hailt nua glanta go deo. Ba chóir go mbeadh lipéad mór ar m'ucht agam, agus na focail "citeal iarainn dubh" air, ach níl an Ghaeilge go maith ina lán do na hailt nua. Several dozen were written by a couple of young fellas I'm not even sure have any Irish at all. I've tagged some of the worst offending film and actor "stubs" as needing review, but I think we need a review of the new article patrol procedures. (Unfortunately it look me so long to get around to vetting a lot of the new scannáin/ceoltóirí/aisteoirí articles that they've "expired" out of the "un-patrolled" list.)

Ainmneacha Gaelacha

Unfortunately I'm going to have to ask this question in English. Why do we seem to be naming our politicians according to their Irish name? The vast majority of these politicians never use their Irish language version and it is seldom (if ever) used on TG4 or other Irish language media. The idea that we use Irish language versions for naming people even if they don't use it even in Irish implies that if there is an Irish language version for anything then that's what should be used i.e. CP Learphoill instead of Liverpool FC, Gluaiseacht Saoirse Teanga instead of Language Freedom Movement. And where do we stop? If there's a US politician with Irish roots do we change his name too? I know I prefer my Gaelic name to my English one, but I can't say that's the same for everyone - many people despise it due to the fact that in schools we were given one even if we didn't want it. As far as I'm concerned we should use a person's one preferred name in place of their Irish one (perhaps providing that in brackets beside it). That way we stick to usage as per TG4, Lá, RnaG, etc. and we reduce the risk of offending anyone. Thoughts? --MacTire02 13:09, 21 Márta 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, it's a fair question. I remember being advised by Gabriel Beecham that we should always use the Irish version of the name, if there is one available, so I have been working based on that. While it's true that a lot of Irish people do not use the Irish version, it's still worth including it in the article, since this is obviously information that is considered relevant on the Irish language Wiki. I have read some differing opinions on how to handle this naming issue here on the Wiki, so it's good to get talking about it. In my opinion, when it comes to Irish people, we should always use both. When naming the article, we should use the version that the person is commonly known as, and then include the other version in the text. For things like the Language Freedom Movement - it's correct to name them in English, but we also need an Irish translation of that inside the article. It's absolutely true that this have never been referred to by anything other than its English name, but Irish speakers still need to know what it is, and hence the Irish translation. --Antóin 18:47, 27 Márta 2009 (UTC)
I totally agree with that summation. The reason I mentioned it was that I was watching Nuacht TG4 the other day and noticed that they kept on mentioning Mary Coughlan, Brian Cowen etc. by their English names and not by their Irish versions. Personally, I think it'd be great if we all got rid of our English names and started using our Irish ones again, but as I said that's my opinion, and on wikipedia their does seem to be general consensus regarding common naming. If we stick to wikipedia convention then the article on Brian Cowen, as an example, should be located at Brian Cowen, with an introduction stating:
Is polaiteoir Éireannach agus Teachta Dála é Brian Cowen, nó Brian Ó Comhain as Gaeilge (10 Eanáir, 1960 a rugadh é).
Instead of;
Is polaiteoir Éireannach agus Teachta Dála é Brian Cowen (Gaeilge: Brian Ó Comhain; 10 Eanáir, 1960 a rugadh é).
Smaointe nó tuairimí? --MacTire02 14:19, 23 Márta 2009 (UTC)
Tá sé deacair a bheith cinnte céard é an rud ceart le déanamh sa chás seo. I mo thuairimse, má tá an t-ainm in úsáid trí Ghaeilge i gcomhthéacs oifigiúil ar bith, tugann sé sin nod go bhfuil an duine sin sásta an leagan Gaeilge dá n-ainm a úsáid trí Ghaeilge. Mar shampla, má bhreathnaíonn tú ar an leagan Gaeilge de liosta ball na Dála ([1]) tá cuid de na teachtaí a úsáideann an leagan Gaeilge dá n-ainmneacha, agus cuid eile a chloíonn leis an mBéarla. Sa chás seo, chloífinn leis an rud céanna do na leathanacha Vicí fúthu. Tá sé níos deacra "úsáid oifigiúil" a sheiceáíl i gcás daoine eile. Gan fianaise den chineál seo, measaim go gcloífinn leis an leagan Béarla d'ainm. Nmacu 17:23, 23 Márta 2009 (UTC)
Ceart go leor. Ach cialaíonn sé sin go gcaithfidh orainn ainmneacha Béarla a úsáid i gcás na bpeileadóirí, rud nach bhfuil éinne ar an vicí (mé féin san áireamh) ag glacadh leis go dtí seo. Hmmm! --MacTire02 17:56, 23 Márta 2009 (UTC)
Just to be awkward I'm going to agree with both of you :) I've long had some discomfort when we use Irish names here in a kind of "original research" way. And, I would agree that, where a politician or sportspersons Irish name isn't in commonuse, that maybe the commonname guidelines would seem to suggest that we avoid it for the article title. (And so the article title should reflect the commonuse name, even if that happens to be in English, with any alternative forms of address/names following in the text). This would follow with standard practice used on other projects.
Now, having said that, while I am firmly against the kind of nonsense that lead to someone "translating" Barac Ó Bama (even if jokingly), and I also firmly believe that this project is in the wrong for using the title Séamas Seoige (where ALL other projects have "James Joyce"), I don't agree that we should have a blanket rule.
Rather, each name should be taken on a case by case basis. For example, while "Brian Cowen" may seem to meet commonname, there does seem to be a history (IN THIS CASE) of Mr. Cowen signing himself Ó Comhain when using Irish.[2] And so I think the title we have for that article is possibly OK.
In short, I'd recommend arguing any renames on their own merits. Rather than setting a broad guideline. (Unless that guideline is simply: "Default to the commonname, except where there is some history of commonuse for a GA title".)Guliolopez 18:00, 23 Márta 2009 (UTC)
Sea, táim féin freagrach (nó ciontach) as ailt a chruthú leis na leaganacha Gaeilge mar theidil orthu, daoine spóirt agus polaiteoirí ach go háirithe. B'fhéidir go bhfuilim ar aon intinn le Guliolopez, sa treo is nach bhfuil ciall ann riail "oifigiúil" a leagadh síos, mar braitheann sé i gcónaí ar an gcás. É sin ráite, ní déanann sé docair na leaganacha Gaeilge a luaigh sna hailt, fad is a bhfuil sé soiléir nach bhfuilimd ag dearbhú go bhfuil siad níos tábhachtaí ná an leagan Béarla atá in úsáid ag an duine áirithe.
Aontaím leis na tuairimí sin. Is fearr a bheith solúbtha faoi agus teacht ar chomhréiteach má tá malairt tuairimí faoi aon chás ar leith. Nmacu 19:56, 27 Márta 2009 (UTC)

Níl mórán ailt faoi Litreacht na Gaeilge ar an chiclipéid seo,agus táim nua anseo

Dia dhiaibh a chairde. Caithfidh mé a rá ar dtús nach bhfuil a lan Gaeilge agam, ach de gnáth bain mé taithneamh as nuair a deanaim é ar scoil don Ardteisteamaireacht. Thug mé faoi deara nach bhfuil mórán ailt faoin abhar na litreachta í nGaeilge ar an saoimh seo anuas. Beidh ámsaor agam ar na laethanta saoire, agus is cinnte go féidir libh a cabhradh. Go háirithe, tá suim agam ar na fillí agus na scríbhneoirí atá ar cursaa na scoile agus an Árdtéisteamaracht.

A few questions & request


Is there a policy on Vicipéid in relation to dashes and slashes or is it each to their own? Some wikis appear to use / e.g. 1999/00 and others use – e.g. 1999–00.

Is there a grading system for articles in place on Vicipéid or any plans for one, e.g. GA & FA?

Could somebody tell me the present perfect/indicative perfect of Bí?


If somebody used to dealing with templates was able to fix the following to stay in the top right corner of the page and make parameters optional it would be much appreciated - Teimpléad:Sraith peile bosca eolais. Go raibh míle maith agat. Onetonycousins 01:43, 9 Bealtaine 2009 (UTC)

Brainse Éireannach do Wikimedia

Hello from the Basque Country

Hi from the Tír na mBascach Euskal Herria or Basque Country

First, I´m a fan of Ireland (I have been in Ireland three times, working or travelling) sorry for not being able to write in Irish. I just saw in your wikipedia the Irish section that explains in several languages making it the Irish-language wikipedia. I have not seen that Euskara or the Basque language. That is why I created this page in Euskara or Basque language for Basque speakers with the purpose to be possible that include together with the other languages.

I have seen that this section is protected and I could not paste the page I created. Please, I wonder if you could do managers. You can also add the following sentence:

"eu:Orrialde honi buruz - Euskaldunentzako azalpena." is the basque translation of this sentence: "en: About this page – clarification for English-speakers".

On the other hand, I am member of the Basque Wikipedia and the creator of Wikipedia Basque Portal about Ireland. I also translated into the Basque language of the Gaeltacht area.

Slán agat! Agur!

Local Rollback discussion

(Brón orm, ach tá orm é seo a scríobh as Béarla ionas gur féidir na réalóirí é a léamh freisin)

Hi ga.wikipedia community. It's recently been requested by some folks that the Rollback option be enabled on this wiki. Rollback is a function normally available only to administrators which allows editors to rapidly revert edits such as vandalism with a single click. This is being used successfully on a number of other wikis (English Wikipedia, Simple Wikipedia, etc) and is a user right which can be granted or revoked by any riarthóir or bureaucrat. However, to enable it on this wiki, an option needs to be switched over by a developer at WMF and for this to happen, the community needs to discuss it first and come to some consensus. To this end, I've started this thread here on the community noticeboard. If this is agreed to by the community, I'll file a bugzilla report and have it switched on for us!

Let's start by discussing it here!

- Alison 06:44, 30 Meán Fómhair 2009 (UTC)


  •   - Ar son - I see this as being a useful option on this wiki and would like to see it enabled, tho' I've global rollback so it doesn't affect me - Alison 06:52, 30 Meán Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
  •   - Ar son - It would be a useful option here and on other wikis to prevent vandalism and/or edits that are intentionally disruptive --Footyfanatic3000 15:05, 30 Meán Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
  •   - Ar son Tameamseo 14:52, 1 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)
  •   - Ar son - Sounds like a good idea, since there's an increasing amount of vandalism and with the growth of this wiki there's a decreasing amount of time to deal with it. Antóin 19:44, 1 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)


Request filed here. Fingers crossed the devs. smile upon us :) - Alison 06:23, 14 Deireadh Fómhair 2009 (UTC)


After a few glitches, this has now been switched on for our wiki :) Any sysop should be able to use their discretion to grant/revoke rollback rights here now, so bring on the requests! While I was testing it, Úsáideoir:SeoMac got enabled, so s/he's the first. BTW - we also have sysop-grantable IP Block Exception, but I don't think we'll ever have the need to use it here - Alison 10:50, 17 Mí na Nollag 2009 (UTC)

Aistriúcháin Google

Measaim go bhfuil an iomarca seafóide á chur ar an Vicipéid le déanaí ag daoine ar bheagán Gaeilge / nach bhfuil an teanga acu ar chor ar bith. Beidh orainn an iomarca ama á chur amú mar gheall ar na "hailt" seo. Agus saghas turscair a bhíonn i gceist go minic i ndáiríre. Is mó dochar ná sochar atá á dhéanamh acu agus b'fhéidir go mba cheart dúinn an bhréag-Ghaeilge seo a scriosadh láithreach nuair a chuirtear ar an Vicipéid í. Tuairimí?
