Change of the template:Infobox country[edit | edit source]

Dear Vikidians, I would like to suggest a change, regarding the template:Infobox country. I think, we need to renovate the infobox, to make it more modern. I would like to have a location of the country, with the flag as wel as the coat of arms/seal/emblem of the country above that. Also, I could make parameters which aren't filled in make disappear from specific articles and make the infobox right for articles about not fully recognized states and overseas areas, like abchazia, the Falkland Islands and Puerto Rico. Before I change anything, I would like to hear others suggestions and opinions. TheDutchWriter (talk) 12:37, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

Update on Instagram[edit | edit source]

Dear Vikidians, a couple of weeks ago I suggested to make an Instagram page for Vikidia EN. A few days ago I made one and sent the passwords to the Vikidia Board (on which I didn't had any response for so far). Our instagram account is called "vikidiaen". "En" stands for "English", for it's only the account of the English Vikidia, due to language issues which could occur otherwise. Other language variations of Vikidia, for example the Italian or French Vikidia, could create their own Instagram page. With a young audience, it's difficult to make one Instagram account for all languages.
For so far the languages, I post articles three times a week by posting a picture which relates to subject and some information. Vikidians can contact me, on Vikidia as well as on Instagram (by sending a message), if they have any suggestions about articles or messages or anything to post. I already made an announcement at the Instagram of WikiKids, which resulted in three followers (which sounds pretty sad at the moment). I would like to ask you to follow, like and share the page on Instagram. You can find it @vikidiaen. TheDutchWriter (talk) 12:47, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

blackcurrant and dutchwriter[edit | edit source]

i think there the same user??? roufly is not a word. roughly is. Masolveo (talk) 17:47, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

That is highly unlikely. Let's do a CheckUser and it will result in a different IP adres. Even so, you can see on the use of words, grammar and even typology it is not true. What your now doing is what we call in Dutch "spijkers op laag water zoeken" (searching for spikes on low water, meaning searching for problems which aren't there). Even a 19 years-old can confuse in a language, which isn't his native (like roufly and roughly). Even to think of such an action is all Greek to me! Nice evening, TheDutchWriter (talk) 17:56, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
No,we are not the same user as TheDutchWriter says--Blackcurrant (talk) 17:58, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
Whilst I appreciate your thought that this might be the same person, Notification Masolveo:, can I please ask you to have a little more judgement when you make comments like this? Everyone makes spelling mistakes, especially when they're not writing in their native language. That is not enough of a reason to suspect that two users are the same person. When I first started writing English, I used to spell words how I thought they were spelled, because of how they sounded. You need a lot more proof before calling out users like this. Please be a little more careful. Thanks! DaneGeld (talk) 08:38, 3 October 2019 (UTC)
