"User" has edit every page I made yesterday adding the fixscots thing to the top of it. I know my work isn't perfect, but I've been trying to use only my print dictionary and Scots-Online's as you advised to stop old words. See I've tried to configure to this sites tastes, and yet with each of these fix scots banners emblazened on the page I'm alienated from the rest of the group. Maybe I'm being too sensitive, and part of me can really believe that, but the greater part knows that this isn't right.

He also seems to particularly fond of such rude phrases as "ye'r taen the pish again." further insults...I'd quite editing here all together if I didn't like to "translate" pages (maybe into gibberish if you must) and seeing the tally go up another notch. Nou Uiserr

Ah've jist had a wee keek at the pages ye made, and they dae read like they've been written bi a non-native speaker. Maist ae it luiks like English owerset intae Scots, likes. Mibbes that's how yer man wis adding the Fixscots tag. Bazza 7/7/06.

Wird HelpEedit

I need help again. This time it's for a word. I can't find it (or it's translation) on D.S.L, Scots-Online, my print dictionary, or really any others I can think of. The word is Vespae.

Mendor, I'm proponin that ye be the first bureaucrat for the Scots Wikipaedia. As ye ken, we dinna hae ane the nou an there's a puckle fowk that micht weel hae been made admin bi nou gin we did. Say you're it! -- Derek Ross 06:01, 17 Julie 2006 (UTC)

Growing the WikiEedit

Ah was speakin with Jimbo Wales aboot buildin the commonty on the wiki here, an this is what he said, Ah thought ye may be interested:

I would say that some of the things that lead to success on small wikis are:

1. Don't have too many rules. Try not to make up or copy any rules from en.wikipedia until you have clear and overwhelming need for it. Gentle talk and loving friendship is always a better way.
2. Reach out to people in the broader commnity... language preservationists, community groups, professors.

Cheers, ✎ Wizardry Dragon (Ma Collogue) (Ma Contreibutions) 20:49, 12 Dizember 2006 (UTC)

Ha! Dinna hae ower monie rules! He micht be better tellin the Wikimedia stewards thon! They're still nae lattin us hae a bureaucrat less we lowp ower their hurdles. A'll hae tae draft a daft bit o policy on the wey tae pick ane afore they'll gie us ane. -- Derek Ross 05:48, 13 Dizember 2006 (UTC)

Heh. Derek, can ye pynt me tae whaur a' this debate is takkin place? A didna e'en ken ye were still at thaim aboot it. Guid on ye, mibbe we'll can get a bureaucrat suin.

Aboot reaching oot tae the braider commonty, we gied that a shottie back whan we set up the wiki an it didna seem tae attract ower muckle interest. Mibbe we shuid gie it anither shot. As for professors, A shuid really talk wi some o the professors in the Linguistics and English Language department here. A'll be daein a coorse cryed Scots: history and structure in the New Year, sae mibbe A'll can get some contacts/interestit persons that wey. Mendor 22:20, 13 Dizember 2006 (UTC)

Ach, weel. Still at them oniewey. Nae wi muckle result though. Readin atween the lines, A jalouse that, gin we set a policy on walin bureaucrats, an gin we hae anither successfu walin, we micht get ye made up tae bureaucrat. But naethin's definite...
Anent the braider community, A wad sey that it has tae be an ongaein effort. Maist fowk arena that like tae contribute tae Wikipedia oniewey, sae ye hiv tae spread the word tae a wheen o likely chiels afore ye'll get a puckle guid editors. -- Derek Ross 23:49, 13 Dizember 2006 (UTC)

Im sorry this response is English however I'm in a hurry and I'm rather stressed at the moment so it'd be overly difficult for me to communicate outside of my native tounge.

That being said, I would not worry overly much about the bureaucratship at this juncture, as Jimbo says, we need to avoid having too much authority creep - this may scare away the volunteers that are neccesary to the growth of the wikipedia. I think an important step is to reach out to language conservationalists, researchers, and professors, to get a little more of a community going.

Personally I post here out of great interest and in hopes that I can improve my Scots, s many have pointed out it is quite terrible. Thusfar though, while people have been a little frustrated and have made some mistakes this place has been a good environment for that - and that's something I'd encourage too. If we can help get more people into the language, that's not just a bigger Wikipedia community, that's a service to the Scots community as a whole :)

Anyways just my two cents, ✎ Wizardry Dragon (Ma Collogue) (Ma Contreibutions) 00:32, 14 Dizember 2006 (UTC)

But it's got naething tae dae wi authority, WD. It maks nae differ tae me whether the bureaucrat is Mendor, me or yersel. Ony trusty body'll dae. It's juist that there are a puckle things on ony wiki that ye need a bureaucrat for, cause naebody else can dae them. Tae gie ye an example, ye maun hae noticed a gey lot o bots fullin up the Scots Recent Chynges list. That's cause naebody here can mark them as bots. Ye maun be a bureaucrat afore ye can dae that. On the Scots Gaelic WP they hae a bureaucrat (me), so they dinna hae the same problem wi bots that we div. Likewise the raison that we juist hae twa admins the nou is that we dinna hae a bureaucrat. Gin we did, there's a puckle mair fowk wid be admins as weel. I've taen the policy on the Gaelic wiki of makkin onybody that taks a serious interest intil an admin an A wid hope that we'd follae a seemlar policy here. We're nae aifter the authority; juist the abeelity. -- Derek Ross 03:01, 14 Dizember 2006 (UTC)

A read the collogue at "requests for permission", and I dinnae unnerstaund whit the oncairy is aboot. Sae we are smaa. Whit's that gat tae dae wi onything? Gin anither vote is taen, A'll uphaud whit yuise that hae been here longer propone. Aleta 06:25, 14 Dizember 2006 (UTC)

I understand the concern over bureaucratship, however, could we also talk about my other points? :) Thanks, ✎ Wizardry Dragon (Ma Collogue) (Ma Contreibutions) 20:51, 14 Dizember 2006 (UTC)

Weel, A dinna see ony need for collogue on yer ither pynts, WD. Aye, we need tae reach oot tae fowk. Aye, we're nae big eneuch tae hae muckle need for hierarchy. Aye, we're daein Scots spikkers a service gin we grow the Scots Wikipedia. Nae disagreement on ony o thon. -- Derek Ross 05:11, 15 Dizember 2006 (UTC)

Bot policyEedit

Hello. To facilitate steward granting of bot access, I suggest implementing the standard bot policy on this wiki. This will involve creating a redirect to this page from Project:Bot policy, and adding a line at the top noting that it is used here. In particular, this policy allows automatic acceptance of known interlanguage linking bots (if this page says that is acceptable), which form the vast majority of such requests.

Please read the text at m:Bot policy before commenting. If you object, please say so; it will be implemented in one week if there is no objection, since it is particularly written to streamline bot requests on wikis with little or no community interested in bot access requests. Carsrac 12:47, 14 Juin 2008 (UTC)

Global botsEedit

Hello. The standard bot policy was updated to allow global bots, which are now technically possible. These are trusted bots that will be given bot access on every wiki that allows global bots (the local policy or request page must explicitly allow them, or they won't get access on this wiki). The current requirements for global bots are:

  • a global bot must only maintain interlanguage links or fix double-redirects;
  • a global bot must have already been active on several wikis, with long-term contributions demonstrating its trustworthiness.

Does anyone object to allowing global bots on this wiki? I'll update the local policy in a week if there are no objections. Thanks. Carsrac 08:57, 5 Januar 2009 (UTC)

  • There is no objections from the burocrate or others that follows this bot request page so I will active the global bot policy also for the scotish wikipedia. Carsrac 16:06, 12 Januar 2009 (UTC)

Request for adminship to be able to import language user boxesEedit

Greetings! Please accept my apologies for writing on your talk page in English. I recently become fascinated by scots, being able to understand your written language etc. I've been reading a lot of articles and have from today taken to myself to organising the language user boxes for the languages. For example

sv-1 Denna användare har grundläggande kunskaper i svenska.


de-3 Dieser Benutzer hat gute Deutschkenntnisse.

. But there are instances, in which I need to move pages, for example, I needed to move {{User sv-N}} to {{Uiser sv-M}}. And there are also instances in which I'd need to delete pages, that either occupy a space needed for a move or are mistakes. Currently, I have standardised and filled in the missing boxes for German and Swedish, and plan to do French next (done). If it's not possible to allow me adminship based on my poor scots, I understand the reasoning for it, but will continue to do what I can to help! :P Thank you for reading, best regards --Île flottant 01:00, 19 September 2009 (UTC)

A canna see ony hairm in lattin the chiel sort the guddle aw thae uiser-boxes haes gotten intae. Nae dout thare's a guid few ither things that coud be sortit forby. Jimmy 08:25, 20 September 2009 (UTC)
Of course there are things that would be of a greater benifit, but the user boxes on the scots wikipedia are in a mess. Many for one language do not follow the standard uniform of that particular language; and many others have yet to be created; and given my non existant scots, I am limited to contributing only to language templates, images etc. --Île flottant 15:27, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

A'v duin this. A canna imagine oniebodie haein onie problems wi't but gin oniebodie dis, they shuid juist lat me ken. Mendor 04:13, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

Administrator requestEedit

Hello thar! I just present, I am Rabbie Barns. I have made a lot of articles on this wiki, maybe they are not all good but you can see by yourself, the most important ones are on my user page, The Doors, or 1914, Martin Van Buren for example. I have made a lot for this wikipaedia, asking for deletions, making categories etc. I am the most active user of this last 30 days, I have seen it on the list with 267 edits (the articles etc). But I think I can be better as administrator. Introducing external images, deleting empty articles, or spam articles, making messages of attention to the "bad users". I know I'm not here since more than three months, but I have made more in the month I've been here than some folks who are here since the creation of the wiki, countless I've edited and created articles before I subscribed. I am full of hope for the future of this wiki, and hope I'll help more and more. (I'm here to improve!).

So, what do you think of my request?

P.S.: So sorry to use English, I love Scotland, speak a guid Scots (A thocht) but I thought it seemed more "official". If you want me to write in Scots, thar's nae problem, as fowks say! --Rabbie Barns 18:10, 17 Apryle 2010 (UTC)

Hi Rabbie, sorry A dinna check this page awfu often. If ye'r still aboot an wantin me tae act on this please uise the E-mail this uiser airtin at the left-haund side o the page tae lat me ken. Cheers, Mendor 03:58, 7 Julie 2010 (UTC)


It does seem a bit empty around here. What when Category:Candidates for speedy deletion has articles tagged since 22 Juin 2010... I would like to request adminship myself to help out. As you last edit/log was 21 Februar 2010, I'm going to email you to check this page, per your uiser page. :) If I don't edit often, I at least check in every day or every other day. I am trusted across several wikis, you can see my flags here. Hope to hear from you soon! Avicennasis 03:43, 7 Julie 2010 (UTC)

Hi Avicennasis, thanks for your email and thanks for your willingness to help out. I'll go ahead and make you an admin. I'm afraid I just don't have the time to spend on here any more, but if there are tasks that a bureaucrat has to do, if someone emails me to let me know then I'll be happy to do them. Best, Mendor 03:50, 7 Julie 2010 (UTC)
Or the active community could go about (s)electing a new bureaucrat, whom I could promote. Mendor 03:56, 7 Julie 2010 (UTC)
No problem, I am happy to help. :) Thanks! Avicennasis 04:33, 7 Julie 2010 (UTC)

Hi, I would be glad to help out too. I am trusted on wikis such as and Wikiversity with administrator access. Could you make me an admin here? Thanks. Diego Grez 19:23, 16 Julie 2010 (UTC)

Bot requestsEedit

Hi! Since you seem to be inactive, I've pointed bot requests for this project to Wikipedia:Mercat Cross. In any case it's probably better for bot requests to be made on a centralized discussion page instead of a user talk page. Hope you don't mind. Regards, Jafeluv 22:37, 2 Apryle 2011 (UTC)

Dearth of adminshipEedit

Hi, Some very basic elements are missing around here.
I just started a Template:Welcome since there isn't one.
There is no concept of a Portal here. Again, I've cloned a Portal:Scotland from enwiki ...

Your inactive bureaucrat and sysop flagsEedit

Hello. Are you still interested in being a bureaucrat and a sysop here? You have been inactive after 2010-07-07 here and everywhere after 2011-08-31.--Jusjih (talk) 19:50, 18 Dizember 2012 (UTC)

(in Inglis) Our only active admin is Avicennasis.
Everyone else senior to me has retired.
Scowiki rollbacker, Varlaam (talk) 07:02, 19 Dizember 2012 (UTC)
Nae true. Joseph Fox (talk) 17:13, 28 Dizember 2012 (UTC)
(in Inglis) Your last community edit was in 2010, knocking some clown off Bazza's talk page.
Your last article edit was in 2009, and the one before that was in 2008.
When I read most of the articles in this project, I never catalogued you as one of the Scots speakers since your footprint escaped my notice. Perhaps you have a different conception of the word "active" than I.
Anyway, welcome back. It would be good to have an authoritative Scots voice. We have no native-born Scots-speaking editor, to my knowledge.
I have already reverted one of your reversions since you are out of the loop. You reverted Fixer, our most productive editor.
Fixer, Avicennasis and I are all North Americans. I am a 52-year-old engineer.
Cheers, Varlaam (talk) 22:20, 28 Dizember 2012 (UTC)
Regardless of all of this, I would invite if you guys need it to take advantage of the fact that scowiki is part of the Global sysop set. This means that you have the benefits of our experienced global sysops helping out from time to time, and that for non controversial stuff you can poke them for help. Should there be the need for such poking, the best avenue is #wikimedia-gs or #wikimedia-stewards on freenode irc, at [1]. I would also note that temporary admins can be appointed from meta following local elections (I say temporary as I doubt there's enough active users for new permanent ones). Kind regards and hope that it helps, Snowolf How can I help? 06:36, 10 Januar 2013 (UTC)
That is one option.
Another is I assume a sysop role, since I have been a real world sysop, and a real world manager since the 1980s.
Avicennasis would add the bureaucrat hat since he is our experienced admin.
The tradition of this project has been to hand out adminships freely, without the formality of enwiki which is 400 times our size.
