english feedback Edit

there should be an english readable link from the main page to post a comment on an english language feedback. it could link back to wikipedia:en:Toki Pona, too. -- grin

ale jan lipuEdit

toki, Sorry to intrude, but I just wanted to suggest that you look at the Wikipedia:Criteria for inclusion of biographies on the English Wikipedia and consider adapting it for toki pona. I'm concerned that the current lax criteria you have detracts from this being a serious encyclopedia. If you are going to be at all like the other language Wikipedias, then pages like Wikipesija:Community Portal would be best in the Wikipesija namespace, and the pages linked from it be user pages rather than articles.

I disagree. If people are not famous or notable enough to have articles in the English Wikipedia, they should not have them here either. Just because it is a different language does not mean the inclusion standards should be reduced. It is supposed to be an encyclopedia, not a record of who is involved in the world of toki pona. Do you think these people are encyclopedic? I realise the criteria were developed with the English Wikipedia in mind, but that does not mean they should be completely ignored here. Angela 13:35, 26 May 2004 (UTC)
Angela, I do see you point, and I agree generally about the 'criteria', however, obviously it's all very culture dependant, for example, most Latvian pop singers would not be getting written about in the English Wikipedia. Personally, I don't really mind your name-space moving suggestion, or even to move most of them into 'User' pages. However, I see nothing wrong with the way things are. We still don't really know what's 'toki-pona' culture and codes will be like (do we?), 'jan pi toki pona' might or might not turn out to be a very important in the long run. You're saying the inclusion standarts shouldn't be reduced just for it being a different language, however, obviously, every language has not necessarily 'lower', but different 'inclusion' standarts. It's not so hard to imagine a culture in which football players are not concidered something notable, or a culture in which road-sign painters are stars, it is?
I do apoligise for spinning out. jan Kaj 14:49, 26 May 2004 (UTC)
Actually, we do have articles on Latvian pop singers. Try Marie N or Brainstorm. -- user:zanimum

Interlanguage linksEdit

Uhm, since this 'pedia does not have a two letter abbreviation, doesn't that mean that pages can't be linked to this language from other languages? For example, see wikipedia:en:City. At the bottom of the page, there is a link to the corresponding toki pono page, instead of where it should go, which is at the top. This seems like a pretty serious problem to me. -Braaropolis 05:07, 25 May 2004 (UTC)

True... and strange, since I'm sure it used to work. -- jan Pili 12:59, 25 May 2004 (UTC)

List of articles all languages should haveEdit

toki! Do you know wikipedia:m:List of articles all languages should have? Can we translate it into toki pona? What do you think about it? e-Goat 01:53, 27 Jun 2004 (UTC)

How do we edit entries on that sidebar? Some of them are still English.

New nameEdit

This should not be called a Wikipedia anymore since it officially isn't one. Is there something better than a generic "encyclopedia" name this wiki could be given? Angela 21:21, 9 Dec 2004 (PST)

Maybe it could be lipu sona Tokipesija ;) —jan sama soweli Miku
I feel "lipu sona wikipesija ala" is more accurate
taso tenpo pini la, ni li lipu sona Wikipesija. mi pilin tan ni e ni: it's not accurate, especially in TP itself, and also misleading to those led here by the Wikipedia notice saying that the content of was moved here. Besides, "Not Wikipedia" is hardly a good name. It'd be like calling Coke "Not Pepsi" or something. —jan sama soweli Miku 08:14, 24 Dec 2004 (PST)
if "Not Wikipedia" is hardly a good name, how about "Wikipedia"? As I understand what's going on here, this _is_ a Wikipedia or ex-wikipedia page, that for whatever reason what so ever, wikipedia "Authorities" do not wish to associate with the brand name 'wikipedia'. However, since the pages mostly seem to have followed wikipedia style, aims and regulations, I hardly see a better name. Probably I missing a certian delicate point, but let's say somebody 'mirrors' and forks wikipedia for example, on a wiki, which the GFDL should allow, is there any legal or rational reason not to call it 'wikipedia'?
"Wikipedia" is a trademark of the Wikimedia Foundation, so a Wikia site can not use it. Nor can any other site using Wikipedia content. Angela 07:58, 3 Jan 2005 (PST)
They could if you let them. It is entirely your decision to not let them use "Wikipedia" or "Wikipesija". And since you are the WikiCrats on Wikia as well, if they don't comply rather than serving them with a lawsuit you can simply shut them down. How convenient!
Why would we let you use our trademark, for a project we got rid of? -- user:zanimum
Gee Zanimum, I don't recall you having any official position in the Wikimedia organisation... YOU didn't get rid of anything. jerk.

ma Anku Edit

This wiki uses the name "ma Anku" for both Koreas together, which is not correct. According to the Official Book by jan Sonja, "ma Anku" is only South Korea, which makes sense, because Toki Pona land names are based on the local name of the country.

"Anku" comes from 한국 (Hanguk. South Korean pronunciation: [ˈha̠ːnɡuk̚]), which is a word that is not used in North Korea. The North Korean word is 조선 (Joseon, North Korean pronunciation: [t͡sosʰɔn]), which would be "Soson" in Toki Pona. Using the name "ma Anku" for North Korea doesn't make a lot of sense, considering it comes from a South Korean term. And since the Official Book agrees with me on the meaning of "ma Anku", I advise using "ma Soson" for North Korea instead.

I thought I'd just quickly correct this in the pages about North and South Korea, but I as I changed the pages, I realized there are much more pages mentioning the two countries than I thought. And more importantly, I cannot move the page for South Korea to "ma Anku", because the name is already used to redirect to the page about both Koreas (which I renamed from "ma Anku" to "ma wan pi ma Anku en ma Sonko").

Sorry for making such sweeping changes without asking. I probably should have discussed here before making the changes. But I didn't realize the scale when I started editing, and I kinda got carried away. But could an admin please remove the redirect page at ma Anku and move ma Anku seli there?

PS: I just realized there are two pages about Pyongyang. ma tomo Ponjan and ma tomo Pijenjan. So these should be merged. "Ponjan" is a more accurate tokiponization of the North Korean pronunciation [pʰjɔŋ.jaŋ]. (The first vowel is pronounced more similar to "a" in the standard dialect of South Korea, so maybe that's where the "e" in "Pijenjan" came from) Raziin (talk) 18:46, tenpo mun pi nanpa luka 5, 2017 (UTC)
