User:Jaaari[edit]

User:Jaaari has been with us one year today. His excellent contributions focus on Finnish translations as well as (much needed) translation section cleanup. Having the [delete] button I'm sure will help him to clean some things up better, faster and easier. --Connel MacKenzie 00:19, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

    2. Strong support - this editor has been here over a year (a year and a day, as of today), and has made an unflagging series of good contributions. bd2412 T 00:44, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

  • Made a sysop today, if I typed the right number of a's - is it Icelandic that has a word with four ä's in a row? It's in the Guinness Book of Records... "jääääre", I think, meaning "the edge of the ice". Does "Jaaari" mean the same in Finnish? — Paul G 16:47, 15 September 2006 (UTC)
    No, Jaaari doesn't mean anything in Finnish (see User_talk:Jaaari#Thanks) and the edge of the ice would be "jään reuna". There are, however, some Finnish words that have three a's in a row, for example the inflected forms of vaaka. --Jaaari 10:27, 16 September 2006 (UTC)
I think the word is jäääär, jäääärne, and it’s Estonian. —Stephen 15:02, 16 September 2006 (UTC)
