Hi! I have one question. Let's assume that I created an article for the competition and I submitted it to the Fountain tool. Are other users allowed to edit my article before the end of the competition? Or should they wait until then? Thanks for the answer, --Luky001 (talk) 09:22, 5 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

@Luky001: they are allowed to edit the article. No need to wait. --Tiven2240 (talk) 09:47, 5 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, Czech user active on Slovak Wikipedia asked me whether users from Czech Republic can sign up for WAM organized on Slovak Wikipedia (which means postcards would need to be send to an address in Czech Republic, not Slovak Republic). I suppose it’s OK since Q&A allows users compete on several Wikipedias (and Slovak users doesn’t necessarily mean they live in Slovakia), although currently, it is not 100% certain WAM will run also on Czech Wikipedia. I’d like to be sure it is OK.--Lišiak (talk) 16:56, 5 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

@Lišiak: yeah, all are invited to contribute to WAM. Happy editing --Tiven2240 (talk) 01:17, 6 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Why do Asians get their own Month and not White People? 18:59, 8 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

It's not Asian people, troll, it's Asia the continent. Abductive (talk) 20:01, 8 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Why don't you do a Wikipedia North American Month that everyone of every kind can enter? 23:10, 8 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

If you really think so, go to Grants:Project/Rapid and launch your own project. You are welcome to do so. --Takot (talk) 05:46, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

The Banner page link here [1] does not have a link to sign up and submit articles here [2], or can I not find it? As the Banner comes and goes, I always found it by searching Wikipedia:Asian Month. I just noticed this week or I would have let you know earlier.--Bonnielou2013 (talk) 21:03, 26 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]
