[4:38pm] cary_is_away: let me continue with you before I run off
[4:39pm] cary_is_away: We can drop the raw quotes into http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fundraising_2007/comments/group_15
[4:39pm] cary_is_away: or actually http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fundraising_2007/comments/group_16 (which is not created yet

[4:44pm] You have returned from away.
[4:44pm] You are now known as cary.
[4:44pm] seanw: Okay.
[4:44pm] cary: Cbrown1023 is
[4:45pm] cary: very good
[4:45pm] cary: the reason that's good is that
[4:45pm] cary: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Centralnotice-quotes can only be edited by an admin
[4:45pm] cary: But the pages are a bit messy and difficutl to navigate
[4:46pm] cary: so someone with some organizational skill can help revamp them and make them make sense?
[4:46pm] Cbrown1023: yeah, I saw that
[4:46pm] Cbrown1023: and have it watchlisted
[4:46pm] loco085: i can help Cbrown1023 with spanish and portuguese quotes ^^
[4:46pm] cary: awesome
[4:46pm] Cbrown1023: hmm, how should we revamp them?
[4:47pm] cary: oh, and yeah, IRC work to get people in #wikimedia who might know different languages
[4:49pm] Cbrown1023: cary: why are they split by lagnuage?
[4:49pm] Cbrown1023: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Centralnotice-headlines/es
[4:49pm] cary: Because there's SO MANY
[4:49pm] Cbrown1023: oh
[4:49pm] cary: oh...those
[4:49pm] cary: because that's the way they got added
[4:49pm] cary: It's thought that we should remove some from the top as we add more
[4:50pm] loco085: should i select the best spanish quotes, cary ?
[4:50pm] cary: indeed
[4:50pm] Cbrown1023: -headlines = is this the text or the stuff before that?
[4:50pm] Cbrown1023: -hide = well, duh 
[4:50pm] Cbrown1023: -media = video link
[4:50pm] cary: oh, Cbrown1023 Those aren't what we're looking for
[4:50pm] cary: -headlines are not quotes
[4:51pm] cary: that's the text on top
[4:51pm] Cbrown1023: quotes?
[4:51pm] Cbrown1023: yup
[4:51pm] Cbrown1023: yeah, I remember that now
[4:51pm] Cbrown1023: * puts it on there
[4:51pm] Cbrown1023: # doesn't
[4:51pm] Cbrown1023: (we're not sure if we are adding non-latin quotes yet, right?)
[4:52pm] cary: no, they're okay
[4:52pm] Cbrown1023: so do we un # them?
[4:52pm] Cbrown1023:   1. 为了你们追求真理和自由的精神,我愿意作出我的贡献. 我在维基受益良多,甚至把它作为平时的阅读网站. 作为学生,捐款不多,谨此表示感谢。
[4:52pm] Cbrown1023:   2. 感谢你们对我们的很大程度上的各方面知识的帮助,希望你们越办越好,帮助更多的朋友。
[4:53pm] loco085:
[4:53pm] cary: no..
[4:53pm] cary: those are # because they're too long
[4:53pm] cary: not because they're non-Latin
[4:53pm] Cbrown1023: ahh, k
[4:53pm] loco085:
[5:01pm] seanw: Okay all.
[5:01pm] seanw: What else needs to be discussed on this?
