Vietnamese Wikiquote

I've found that my native language wikiquote site has no admin. How can I become administrator in Vietnamese Wikiquote? Cumeo89 18:24, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

You can ask it at Requests for permissions. Because there isn't a local community, you can ony ask for temporary acces at Requests for permissions#Temporary permissions for emergency or technical purposes. SPQRobin 19:01, 2 July 2007 (UTC)
Wikiquote's logo

The text for Wikiquote logo is unorthodox and doesn't anti-alias attractively. Any way to canvas a vote to change this? Alton 02:02, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Well, we had a whole large logo contest recently, that ended up with no change to the current logo. I'm hoping in a week or two to set up a better managed, better promoted process, to find a replacement. I'm hoping that the Wikimedia Foundation will agree to endorse the process, and either way I'll be trying to attract tons of outside participation. -- Zanimum 13:25, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
Ok, I'll wait for you then. Alton 02:13, 15 April 2007 (UTC)
We have used that logo for a long while and do not seem to have a problem with it. Furthermore, "canvas a vote to change this" is not the way to communicate that (it really isn't a vote and it makes it appear like you are sure everyone thinks the logo is bad). Actually, Brion helped us design that logo and it tooks us a while to make that one. If you would still like to discuss this, I would suggest that you discss this on our Wikiquote mailing list (wikiquote-l) (or continue discussion here, but it may be better suited on the mailing list as this is why the mailing list was created).

Well, I don't think we can actually every obtain a strong copyright hold on the current logo, and thus it's almost a liability for the Foundation, to have an unenforceable brand. -- Zanimum 14:55, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
I think the logo is fine, the text I agree it's ugly. drini [es:] [commons:] 19:16, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
Um, I love handwriting text ... I feel it rather beautiful and fitting the taste of this project. --Aphaia 02:21, 15 April 2007 (UTC)
I wouldn't say love, but I do like the whole logo and how the text and the image come together. I wouldn't vote for a change in the logo. Cbrown1023 talk 03:44, 15 April 2007 (UTC)
It has subtle artifacts when viewed against a darker background, as it is in the top-left of the project. A cleanup, and quite possibly a change in font, is what I'm asking. Alton 06:31, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

What's wrong with the logo? I like it.--Poetlister 15:40, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

The logo is great; the text I have problems with. Alton 04:09, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Afrikaans Wikiquote

Hi, the Afrikaans Wikiquote has recently passed the 100 article marker. Can anyone who has the access please add our Wikiquote to the main page please? That page that has the logo in the middle, with all the languages surrounding it and some underneath it. Please and thank you! 41.243.45.16 09:37, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Breton Wikiquote

There is now a breton wikiquote, which is still in the incubator. It has 15 articles and continues to grow everyday, which makes it the 59th wikiquote already. I hope it will be soon an official wikiquote. If you want to help us becoming an official wikiquote the sooner the better, please write your comments here: Requests for new languages/Wikiquote Breton. Thx! Benoni 22:15, 11 October 2007 (UTC)

The breton wikiquote has now 50 articles and is therefore the 51st wikiquote.Benoni 13:01, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
