Hi Kevin, thanks for the article on Buddhism. The Simple version much more respond my expectation than the English version. I just copied and pasted it in the Tok Pisin Buda Page without any formatting nor pictures, since it will only serve there as a starting point for a future Tok Pisin version. As for the Simple Wikipedia, here is my comment:maybe a bit too long; I was thinking the other day about the Simple articles that maybe they could have two or three "levels". One very simple, dictionary like, definition (short but as explanatory as possible), one slightly more extended list of relevant points; and then details. All could be on the same page or on different pages. Well, those are only my comments as a non-native speaker of English. Anyway, thanks again! I hope for more cooperation between the Simple and the TP Wikipedias. -- 02:58, 9 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Please don't move articles from the F.C. to the Football Club name endings. It is currently fairly standard at F.C. and I think all other names should redirect there.

I think; as teams are generally known in the UK as F.C. it makes more sense. Compare 25,500 hits for "Manchester United Football Club" with 88,600 for "Manchester United F C". Therefore, I think the [team name] Football Club model should redirect to [team name] F.C.
If the team name ends in A.F.C. we should redirect there. The obvious exceptions to this would be ones like A.F.C. Bournemouth, A.F.C. Wimbledon and F.C. Barcelona. Maybe we should still have all possible mistaken names redirect there.

Images[change source]

Kevin, it's been a while, but I just want to note that you can't simply copy the images from the English wikipedia over here. There are a number of copyright concerns when you do something like that. There was a relative short discussion about that here at Simple talk. If you do want to add images, may I suggest getting them from Wikipedia:Commons? -- Ricky81682 (talk) 07:19, 28 Jun 2005 (UTC)
