Goidelic and Brythonic, two families ?

Goidelic (Breton, Welsh, Cornish) and Brythonic (Irish, Scottish gaelic, Manx) are two branches of the same Celtic family. Why not reunify them ? Sroulik 20:32, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

Tupi (Abanhe'enga)

"Tigrinya (ትግርኛ) – ti – 177 articles;
Tupi (Abanhe'enga) – ti – 103 articles"

Something is wrong; the code "ti" refers to the Tigrinya language, and not the Tupi language edition in Wikipedia. Someone can take a look? What's happening? Thanx.


Headline: Language family name (A – B – C – D%)

A is defined as "A – total articles in wikipedias over 100 (at last count)". A cursory look through the page however shows that the entries for A are the sum total of articles for that language group! Is the error with the definition or with the implementation by the editors? Which is which? Obviously, going by the definitions, A would be "0" for a few language groups.--Natsubee 15:10, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

  • I was the one who introduced the definition! That was back in 2005! Back then there were too many languages with fewer than 100 articles. the rationale was that not counting them would make update much easier with no real drawbacks on presentation. but of course today we have 2008. as most languages have exceeded 100 articles my original definition looks like is maybe obsolete. Obviously newer editors did not respect an obsolete definition. My proposal? Feel free to change the definition if you think so. --Lucinos 17:46, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
