Merci for restoring the page. I saw the changes, but I did not know how to undo. (restauration après vandalisme) May be. --M. I. Mursal 09:22, 16 November 2006 (UTC)

In fact, you go in "history", you choose the version before the vandalism, you click on "edit", and you "save page" : that way you save the previous version. ;-) Baronnet 10:19, 16 November 2006 (UTC)
Thanks. To be optimistic that “vandalization” was good, because I have learned how to restore a page that has been changed unintentionally. --M. I. Mursal 11:04, 16 November 2006 (UTC)


Please, could you translate this article onto the language of this Wikipedia? Thanks for your help. --Jeneme 15:46, 11 Diseembar 2007 (UTC)

I cannot translate that page : I do not speak Somali. Baronnet 08:55, 13 Diseembar 2007 (UTC)

Sorry but as said before, I do not speak Somali. You will have to translate your question to English or French or German or Italian or Spanish or Latin. Baronnet 11:10, 14 Juun 2010 (UTC)

you don't speak somali????? How on earth can you edit an article that has been writing in somali?

I've asked you, why you write only one word, and not explain a bit more what it means, in somali.. and how can you put somali language into other languages without editing thier article..

I mainly illustrate and categorize and link to other languages ; except for a few instances (for articles which seemed to deserve a stub, especially when the number of articles was more scarce than today), I do not expand articles in a language which I do not master. And as Somali contributors tend to link with other languages without putting the reciprocal link, this does not allow bots to notice the existence of these Somali articles ; when I add a link to a Somali article in a Wiki in another language, I allow bots to build interwiki links ; and through the increased visibility of Somali articles among other languages, the terribly small number of contributors to this wiki, which is lagging among the last on Earth (the number of 1000 articles was only reached in 2010 long after many languages, much less spoken), has a chance to increase at last. You don't need to speak a language to be able to do these basic tasks, which no one else has done before. And Wikipedia is about cooperation : one creates a stub, someone else adds more content, someone else illustrates, someone else categorizes, someone else adds interwiki links, and so on. This is a common work, and you can help. The articles are too small ? You speak Somali when I don't ? Well, you can create and improve all the articles you wish, for the benefit of all.

To answer your second question, if I understand it properly: you cannot add the Somali article into other versions of Wikipedia in other languages without editing their article: you must edit the foreign language article and add this in the right place : [ [ so : XXXX ] ], XXXX being the Somali title of the article. Baronnet 12:40, 14 Juun 2010 (UTC)

You are welcomeEdit

i get this wikipedia for somali language through english wikipedia in 2008 but i started writing in november 2009, also you did important role in this wiki, By: Alshareeca

I was wondring something! ,I guess you are working for wikipedia, since you know everything about wikipedia. I want you to tell me if I can get any financial support from those articles I'm translating ? or is it just something free..:~~

Dear Maax, I am not working for the Wikimedia Foundation. I am a free contributor to the "Insaykalobeedhiyaha Xorta ah". To my knowledge, there is no financial support for participating to the building of this common knowledge for mankind. The benefits brought to others is our only reward. Baronnet 07:15, 13 Agoosto 2010 (UTC)

I was just asking, so I can get some easy cash:)

where you come from? and are you Administrator or do you know how to make this message.

because it does not have image like other sites..when you reply use my name, so I know you answered~~

Please, could you translate en:Podolsk into Soomaaliga? Naturally if you have available time!Edit

Good day to you! Could you, please, translate into Soomaaliga the article, containing two-three sentences, about this city in Russia? I’d like to thank you in advance :)--Переход Артур 10:48, 15 Febraayo 2011 (UTC)

Tell me if this is better, about the country infobox ? About becoming administrator, I remember that I had asked, but I never received an answer : I would like to become an administrator too... Baronnet 15:53, 8 Maarso 2011 (UTC)

Declaration droits de l'homme en SomaliEdit

Salut Baronnet! J'ai vu ta demande sur ta page utilisateur. Je ne sais pas si cette demande est toujours actuelle. En tout cas il y a un site qui peut t'interesser : http://www.lexilogos.com/declaration/index.htm. Voici un autre petit site amateur tres interessant sur la Somalie : http://hooyo.web.free.fr. -- 05:02, 10 Luuliyo 2012 (UTC) (je suis Dominik sur wiki/EO)

Hello, my intention was not that I will take away something or link: but I have always done when I have time to add more new words to the dictionary at the same time I removed all of the previous text before I put the new text that has more new words than the previous text. In addition, I don't know how to make a link for the text. Ina warfaa (talk)
Thank you for your answer, and your work. To make a link : you just have to put the word which you want to link between brackets like this [[]]. To avoid removing the categories : you just have to leave the last line of text, which contains the link to the category. More about Wiki syntax here, and about links here. Baronnet (talk) 11:16, 25 Febraayo 2013 (UTC)

User: Baardheere. I wrote the first article (xidigiska)but I mistakenly placed under the English Wikipedia page. Fortunately, it was detected that the language was Af Somali and was subsequently categorized correctly. Thanks to smart Wiki folks. I wish I had taken the credit for this article which I love. If server dates are searched thoroughly, admin people can figure out that I logged on to one of the machines I frequented. IP numbers will give exact clue that, I, Baardheere was the user that uploaded this article. Merci!


cilmidayax, it means something like "science of moon" i dont think it is necessary! Maax (talk) 11:45, 10 Abriil 2013 (UTC)

en:Do not buy Russian goods!Edit

Hello! Could you translate an article about boycott of Russian goods in Ukraine for the Somali Wikipedia? Thanks for the help.--Trydence (talk) 18:37, 23 Nofeembar 2014 (UTC)

I, user: Baardheere, have created this page about astronomy. It will be noted for the IP addresses I used on occasions-where I sometimes forgot to sign on.

Someone recognized the Af Somali and then switched/categorized the article into Af Somali, rightfully so. I really appreciate your "Baronnet" quick fix for this article which there are no similar ones even in so. Is there a way to credit or match article and its creator? I have at least 1 more article which I really like to bear my user name but forgot to sign in when I created the page. This questions is directed to upper level Wiki Editor friends. Baardheere (talk)

I am looking for assistanceEdit

Hi Baronnet,

First and foremost, i would like to thank you for your positive vote. I am bursting with questions, and you are the only one that i could think to ask. As you may be aware all of Somali Wikipedia admins have been unavailable for so long; few people and i are currently active and trying to do nearly everything. But, you know, i can't figure out everything by myself. That's were you come in - i am asking for assistance to manage some important pages, templates, portals etc. I understand that you have got something to do, but please give me some clues with how to correct the following:

There are much more things to ask but i will come with the important ones only. Thank you. Ismail Suge (talk) 00:31, 18 Oktoobar 2015 (UTC)

I am sorry, but that is beyond my ability; I am not an expert in templates. The only solution I can think of, except contacting experts on the English Wikipedia, would be to revert to a state of the model which did not have the problem, open it for edition without changing it, saving it, then re-translate what needs translation. By the way, are you an admin by now, or when will you become an admin ? Baronnet (talk) 15:36, 24 Oktoobar 2015 (UTC)
Hi Baronnet, i did not see your respond before today. Please attach my name when you respond to me so that i receive notification. About the template, i tried all that you told me and still not working well. I am thinking of copying from the English Wikipedia and translating which is a whole new process. By the way, i am a temporary admin now. Thank you. Ismail Suge (talk) 22:51, 12 Nofeembar 2015 (UTC)

Hello Shaqaaf, I would be glad to help. What do you need to know about writing articles ? The best way is to look at good quality articles and to learn from the way they are written. Baronnet (talk) 15:24, 31 Jannaayo 2016 (UTC)
