This email... (Yes I probably shouldn't be replying)...

There is only one English Wikipedia project. There are multiple Wikimedia
projects, including wiktionary, wikibooks, wikiversity, Wikinews, and

These are NOT projects of Wikipedia, and I am among the people who are not a
significant contributor to Wikipedia who finds it irritating to be
continually referred to as "a project of Wikipedia".

Marco, I'm sorry to bite at you, I've had a bad day today. I'd just like to
see people remember this isn't the Wikipedia mailing list and people who
have little to do with that project are also present. As much smaller
projects it can seem you are ignored when presented with everything in terms
of Wikipedia.

I have no opinion on Veropedia, but if it is not a WMF project it should not
be promoted on this list. Anyone persistently doing so should be moderated.

No, I'm just basing on the name. To be honest, I don't know about 
en.wikipedia wikiprojects and Danny's email looked to me like it was a 
project on the English language Wikipedia. So that's why I was referring 
to it as a Wikipedia project (ok, I should have said wikiproject).
