Messages and requests:[baguhin | baguhin ang batayan]

I do hope I've come to the right place. I am w:en:User:DuncanHill on the English language Wikipedia. I'm interested in finding our more about the 1963 tragedy in which the Filipino contingent to the 11th World Scout Jamboree died in a plane crash. I know that there is a memorial in Quezon City, and that the anniversary (28 July) is Scout Memorial Day in the Philippines. I have asked about it on the Reference Desks on the English Wikipedia - w:en:ikipedia:Reference desk/Humanities#1963 Philippine Scouting tragedy. Many thanks, DuncanHill 04:43, 28 Enero 2011 (UTC)

I took the liberty of answering your inquiry on the English Wikipedia. :) --Sky Harbor (usapan) 06:26, 28 Enero 2011 (UTC)

Correction required[baguhin | baguhin ang batayan]

Hello, I'm w:he:user:פיצקוש, Hebrew Wikipedia. On the list of other Wikipedias on your main page, under category "100,000 mga artikulo", there is an error in the Hebrew (Ebreo) language name (as written in Hebrew), it says ערית instead of עברית. Could someone correct it? thanks.

Maruekos[baguhin | baguhin ang batayan]

Hi in Filipinas

I am from the french Wiktionary and I would like to know why the Name of the country Morocco have been repaced on the tagalog WP by Maruekos. Thanks Dhegiha (makipag-usap) 20:23, 25 Setyembre 2013 (UTC)

The country's name in Tagalog is ostensibly from Spanish. However, as you may have noticed, we're dealing with how exactly country names should be translated into Tagalog, and it is a very contentious issue with people on both sides of the argument (some say it should be Spanish, others say English, etc.), so you will see inconsistent place names everywhere for the time being until the issue is resolved. --Sky Harbor (usapan) 00:39, 26 Setyembre 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your quick answer. Very helpful! Dhegiha (makipag-usap) 07:26, 26 Setyembre 2013 (UTC)
