  • You are very welcome to give us your advice and suggestions about the French Wikipedia;

Why Crash de l'A320 de Germanwings instead of " Vol Germanwings 9525"?

I understand, of course, that the common name for many aviation disasters is different from the flight number. But I am quite surprised to see this crash referred to in this manner. In French-language media, is this the common nomenclature over using the flight number? Thanks in advance. MSG17 (discuter) 10 novembre 2021 à 14:40 (CET)

Hello, the article has been renamed several times : Vol 9525 Germanwings - Écrasement du vol Germanwings 9525 - Crash de la Germanwings - Écrasement du Vol Germanwings 9525 - Crash de la Germanwings (translation => Germanwings Flight 9525 - Crash of Germanwings Flight 9525 - Crash of Germanwings Flight 9525 - Crash of Germanwings).
The current name results from this discussion => [1] =>   Sg7438 discuter, c'est ici ! 10 novembre 2021 à 14:54 (CET)

Bernard Edmond (1873-?) and Adolphe Belliard (1877-?)

Bonjoure! I am looking for any additional information (in particular, dates of death, places of death, references, etc) for these two persons. Both are mentioned in Depresle (1925), Anthologie des Ecrivains Ouvriers. Information is needed to create wikidata items for these two. Thank you!

Hello @Henry Merrivale, I found this book that provides info on Adolphe Belliard : born in Nantes on October 4th 1877, oprhan at 7 years old (and the rest is not available). Skimel (discuter) 11 avril 2022 à 13:14 (CEST)
Belliard is also mentioned in the Dictionnaire Littéraire des écrivains d'expression populaire (2016) , with his birth date only (1877). Skimel (discuter) 11 avril 2022 à 13:17 (CEST)
Grand merci! Henry Merrivale (discuter) 12 avril 2022 à 02:40 (CEST).

Hoax article

Hello everyone. I wanted to bring to your attention the article Boe, l'elfe joueur de bowling, which constitutes a hoax. The user apparently created it in French Wikipedia after multiple failed attempts at adding hoax articles about animated films on the English edition, some of which were made with earlier user names. --85.76.166.117 (discuter) 17 mai 2022 à 22:18 (CEST)

A month later, and nothing has happened. Just reminding you of this, hoping that someone would at least acknowledge it. --2001:999:50C:CD0E:3D42:D9CC:47E5:D9AD (discuter) 15 juin 2022 à 20:44 (CEST)
Hello
Thank you for your message!
I looked for some sources in order to check (none found as expected), and then asked for a quick suppression here. AnneJea (discuter) 15 juin 2022 à 22:40 (CEST)
