RFC[edit]

The following discussion has been moved from Wiktionary:Requests for cleanup.

This discussion is no longer live and is left here as an archive. Please do not modify this conversation, though feel free to discuss its conclusions.


An anon (varied IP) has been adding numerous translations for numerous languages, many of which are suspect. Could experts in various languages please look over and correct/remove translations? --EncycloPetey 04:35, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

I have converted the RFC to TTBCs so that each language can be checked individually. This RFC would, frankly, be impossible to close, because the closer would need to be fluent in every listed language... whereas, the TTBCs preserve the information while waiting for speakers of each language to double-check the translations in their own time. - -sche (discuss) 05:25, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
People, please join on cleaning this one. If it's messy, it will take some time to clean up. Would be great to list only translations added by the suspicious IP, then it would be easier to check. Many of contributors will never come back and we may not be able to check the translations ourselves. --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 05:30, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
