Vint Cerf[edit]

My fault; I should have put a note somewhere I was still working on the article. I'm adding three quotes from the same article which is why I made a subsection. Feel free to check what I'm doing and make sure I'm doing it right. Thanks for your help! Alden Loveshade (talk) 18:10, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

Ah, no problem. Looks fine with the new additions. ~ UDScott (talk) 19:21, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

Reminder about linking to VFD discussions[edit]

As in this situation, if you use a subpage link (/) rather than a section link (#) it will still work after the discussion is archived. ~ Ningauble (talk) 17:05, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Ah, thanks - as always, I am not the most technologically gifted admin around - thanks for the help. ~ UDScott (talk) 13:22, 13 February 2017 (UTC)


Hi - thanks for fixing my references in Ferdinand Lundberg. I was wondering, should I be adding inline quotes using the references template in the same way one would do at Wikipedia? I notice the referencing format is a little different at Wikiquote. DarjeelingTea (talk) 05:00, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Yes, citations here are different than at Wikipedia. This question comes up so often that perhaps we ought to write a guideline about it, instead of relying on the new article templates to get the point across by example. The draft at WQ:CITE, copied from an old Wikipedia version, is inappropriate and very misleading for describing accepted practice at Wikiquote. ~ Ningauble (talk) 15:25, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

The deletions of Finnish authors[edit]

Why the hell have the pages of Samuli Paronen, Väinö Nuorteva and Paavo Haavikko have been deleted! They're very famous authors in Finland and have a lot to say to English readers also. I have no relationship to them. If the translation is poor, I could understand. The references are there... and nobody has translated these before, as far as I know. Many thanks for Mirkka Rekola's edits. She's now the only poet in tye category of Finnish poets. --Risto hot sir (talk) 01:44, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
