(Re: Your user page) You were Trekkie enough to sign up, so I'm sure you'll fit in fine. ;) Have you checked our Swedish version yet? It's on the main page under "International" and needed major work last time I checked. Also, if you're looking for a way to contribute, you can try our "Duty Roster" (it's the red link in my signature). Welcome to MA! --Vedek Dukat Talk | Duty Roster 14:55, 16 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Question about swedish version
Hi there. What is the point in having a swedish version of MA? You might not be the right person to ask but since you brought it up with me I thought I could ask you. Everyone in Sweden speaks english (more or less fluently) and it seems to be a superfluous task. Tryffel
- Well, you're right about that, I'm not the one to ask. I neither speak Swedish nor have ever visited Sweden. But if what you say is true, that explains why the Swedish version is in such bad shape! Oh well. --Vedek Dukat Talk | Duty Roster 15:48, 16 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- So, who should I ask about it? One of the founders of MA or someone else in charge of the Swedish page? Maybe it would be a good idea to cancel it if its in a bad shape and noone really cares to upgrade it? No point it if thats the case, ey? Tryffel
- I don't know who is in charge over there. Perhaps you could leave a message on their Ten Forward, or our Ten Forward if no one is there. If it's any indication, I found this on sv:Användardiskussion:Pjotr'k:
- Hello Peter. I've made you a bureaucrat here now since the other admins haven't been active for some time. Let me know if there are any problems. Angela (talk) 11 oktober 2005 kl.18.25 (UTC)
- You've been helpful. It's not that important to me. I didn't even realise there was a swedish version until you refered me to it. Maybe I'll contact the high command with my comments and await further instructions. Tryffel
Glad to hear it. Also, I wish the Wiki would organize our conversation the way you did. Things would be so much easier that way. Let me know if you need help with something or have any questions! --Vedek Dukat Talk | Duty Roster 16:50, 16 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- Thank you so much. That is an offer I probably will take advantage of! I like it here. It's so warm and friendly. And all this wonderful information about the coolest nerdy subject makes me all fuzzy inside. Tryffel
