  • Sydney Riot of 1879 (a featured article on the English Wikipedia - it includes the text of two letters in full of key historical signifcance) (jguk)
  • I have received a list of 18.865 words in Stellingwerfs with a Dutch translation for inclusion in Wiktionary. Because of its significance I nominate it for consideration. GerardM 14:40, 30 July 2005 (UTC)
  • Thanks to Giorgio Giuliano, President of the consortium, who came to my house today, I today received the permission to use the contents of http://www.limonecostadamalfi.com, an Italian I.G.P., product for wikipedia and wikibooks (recipes). It is one of the most particular products worldwide since this kind of lemon is produced and can grow only on the Amalfi Coast due to its particular climate and soil and its history goes back for centuries. The first book on that theme was printed in 2004 and is available on request. The contents will be inserted into wikipedia and wikibooks using the user name COVAL asap. --Sabine 16:25, 30 July 2005 (UTC)
