racism in France

Concerning the part about jews during german occupation in WWII : the yellow star is not a french decision taken in the october 1940 in the ' statu des juifs ' ( jews statu )but a german decree in occupied zone from may 1942 ,( the yellow star has never existed in Vichy zone even after this territory has been annexed to german zone in november 1942) and the round-ups from summer 1942 have been done in part by french officials and police but on german request , ordered by Himmler and Heydrich ( the french made the choice to arrest first foreign jews , so 80 % of french citizen jews have survived the war which is an high rate among all occupied countries ) — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 09:17, October 31, 2017 (UTC)

Need help with reference translation

I'm working on Draft:Tom Waltham. I found what looks like a good source,, but it's in French and the various auto-translation tools for some reason can't handle the document format. Would somebody be willing to translate this for me? I realize that's a lot of work; I'd be happy if somebody could read it and summarize the facts that would be most useful as references for Draft:Tom Waltham. -- RoySmith (talk) 14:14, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

Oh, never mind. It looks like I can copy-paste it one paragraph at at time and then the autotranslator can deal with that. -- RoySmith (talk) 14:17, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Lycée Edgar-Quinet


The article Lycée Edgar-Quinet has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

All three of these schools are currently red links. Lycée Edgard-Quinet (Paris) is the only one with links from other pages, and those only via Template:Lycées in Paris. There is nothing a disambiguation page can reasonably link to. Please create the articles before disambiguating them.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

French museums on the List of music museums

Hi there, I have introduced the List of music museums, and a number of French museums are written in French but not in English. Are there users at this project that like to write some or all of these articles? Best regards, Ymnes (talk) 19:36, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

For the record, those are:

Thank you for the oversight! Ymnes (talk) 17:37, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
In order to not only ask, but to give something back as well, I have written an article for your project in return: Musée de la chanson française. Happy editing! Ymnes (talk) 17:12, 27 October 2018 (UTC)

RfC on election/referendum naming format

An RfC on moving the year from the end to the start of article titles (e.g. South African general election, 2019 to 2019 South African general election) has been reopened for further comment, including on whether a bot could be used move the articles if it closed in favour of the change: Wikipedia talk:Naming conventions (government and legislation)#Proposed change to election/referendum naming format.

Merge notice for Sciences Po

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Sciences Po should be renamed Institut d'Études Politiques de Paris according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines on article titles.

The article will be discussed at the article Talk page until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines. Users may edit the article during the discussion. However, do not remove the merge notice from the top of the article. Mathglot (talk) 01:13, 29 October 2018 (UTC)

There is a move discussion at Talk:Musée_de_la_Vie_Romantique#Requested_move_3_November_2018 requiring more participation, please consider commenting/voting in it along with the other discussions in the backlog (Wikipedia:Requested moves#Elapsed listings).

Featured quality source review RFC

Editors in this WikiProject may be interested in the featured quality source review RFC that has been ongoing. It would change the featured article candidate process (FAC) so that source reviews would need to occur prior to any other reviews for FAC. Your comments are appreciated. --IznoRepeat (talk) 21:48, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Help at Articles for Creation

Can someone who can read French help out with Draft:Metis Music Festival at AfC? I cannot locate anything in English for notability and cannot read the references provided in the draft. There appears to be an article for this topic in French Wikipedia so it is possibly notable, but would like to know if the sources included in the draft show notability. If so, please let me know and I can move the draft to mainspace. --CNMall41 (talk) 01:54, 18 November 2018 (UTC)

@CNMall41: There was a mistake in the title. I've wikified it and accepted it in the main space after reviewing the sources. Thank you for the heads up. Regards, Comte0 (talk) 09:59, 18 November 2018 (UTC)

Great power article: Map

Following quite nasty edit-war, I started discussion on the Great Power article talk page about map in the article. Main topics for discussion: What countries should be on the map? Should the map show some sort of hierarchy of great powers (eg. using colours)? Would not be better to remove the map altogether? So far, only IPs and new accounts entered this discussion, so input from experienced editors would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Pavlor (talk) 08:24, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

RFC at Stéphane Grappelli

There is an RFC at Talk:Stéphane_Grappelli#RFC:_Gay regarding whether or not the article should state that the subject was gay. Please provide your perspective! –Roscelese (talkcontribs) 04:07, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
