  • Wikiquote:Village pump - Wikiquote 1 February 2010 4:35 UTC ja.wikiquote.org [Source type: Original source]

^ No single article is the source of more than four quotes, and the longest quote is under 200 words, out of the tens of thousands of words in each article.
  • Wikimedia Forum/On disbanding Wikiquote - Meta 1 February 2010 4:35 UTC meta.wikimedia.org [Source type: Original source]

^ Taglines : If there is more than one tagline for the movie, then all taglines belong in this section.
  • Wikiquote:Guide to layout - Wikiquote 1 February 2010 4:35 UTC is.wikiquote.org [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

.The largest Wikiquote is the English project with over 17,500 articles, followed by Italian, Polish, German, and Portuguese with over 5,000 articles each, and by Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Bulgarian, Bosnian, Slovenian and Turkish with over 2,000 articles each.^ I am an admin on Bosnian Wikiquote [10] project and I have a question regarding the main Wikiquote page located on the www.wikiquote.org address.
  • Wikiquote:Village pump - Wikiquote 1 February 2010 4:35 UTC ja.wikiquote.org [Source type: Original source]

^ I noticed that there are 10 languages prominently placed in what looks like a “circle of friends” :) predominantly representing 10 wikiquote projects with most number of articles.
  • Wikiquote:Village pump - Wikiquote 1 February 2010 4:35 UTC ja.wikiquote.org [Source type: Original source]

^ My question is, would it be possible to include Bosnian language into this prominent circle of wikiquote projects either as additional language or as a replacement for one of the languages with less articles.
  • Wikiquote:Village pump - Wikiquote 1 February 2010 4:35 UTC ja.wikiquote.org [Source type: Original source]

.The French project, which was restarted in December 2006, has 1,899. Fifty-one language versions have 100 or more articles.^ Just to alert all the Admins here there is more than one Christmas Carol articles like the Christmas Carol book, the 2000th film and the 2009th Christmas carol film.
  • Wikiquote:Administrators' noticeboard - Wikiquote 1 February 2010 4:35 UTC ja.wikiquote.org [Source type: Original source]

  • Wikiquote:Village pump - Wikiquote 1 February 2010 4:35 UTC ja.wikiquote.org [Source type: Original source]

^ This would help us generate more traffic on our project and attract more users who read and understand Bosnian language to our sizable library of quotes.

.They can inspire us to seek to understand the people that uttered them, to consider the course of our own lives, to laugh, or merely to admire their mastery of language.^ Seeking to understand why I had been blocked, I found I could not edit my own Talk page.
