True. I can do that for sure. (I will :-))
But then, if I can do that in english, I certainly
cannot do it decently in any other language (it would
be mostly google translation, and these are often
terrible, plus they do not deal with every language).
So it would only be on the en.wiki.
But [[en:]] is the only wiki besides [[fr:]] that you use, right?
You would probably say that makes sense since it is
the biggest; but it also make sense that some subjects
will be over time better covered on the french/german
wikis than on the english.
I certainly don't mean to suggest an idea that's special to [[en:]].
But if you can't write in, say, German,
then why would you want to create a page on [[de:]] anyway?
I'm not sure that I understand what you want to do.
True. Of course. These were just thoughts
I think that we're brainstorming here.
