Well, as I said, I really could care less, and since a response does not 
appear to be forthcoming to my question, I'll simply plod along and get 
back to
my translating work and MediaWiki enhancements. I have a talk page is on 
meta and I am placing my **individual** name removed by Aphia
back as a Cherokee translator (Aphia does not respond to any of my 
questions on any site and is a non-responsive translation coordinator). 
I've enabled notification, and since you have stated I am welcome as a 
Cherokee translator as in individual, I'll certainly be available.
