Europe 10,000 Challenge inviteEdit

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 21:09, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Language alsEdit

Hello. I see you have als-2 in your Babel language box. It's a complicated situation, as als is the official ISO 639-3 code for Tosk Albanian, but on Wikipedia it has historically been used for the Alemannic version of Wikipedia, when Alemannic "should" use the official ISO 639-2 code of gsw. So it's recommended that you use gsw or the more specific ISO639-3 code of swg (Swabian). So could you change it to one of those? TIA Le Deluge (talk) 22:46, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

Thank you very much for your advice! --Osingar (talk) 07:03, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
