Talk:Submissions/Speedy Transwiki - a proposal for wrong language submissions

From Wikimania 2013 • Hong Kong

I don't understand why this should require, benefit from or inform a Wikimania submission. It's already possible to retrieve those articles from https://speedydeletion.wikia.com . The German Wikipedia already has users who export non-relevant articles to a secondary wiki, the Italian Wikipedia has a process to transwiki articles to other projects (usually Wiktionary). Any user can copy such articles from en.wiki to the other wiki mentioning the author in edit summary (per analogy from m:Terms_of_use#7c), or from the speedydeletion wiki. Rather than waiting Wikimania, you should just contact the communities/administrators of those languages and tell them to import the content if they're interested. ;) --Nemo 07:57, 12 May 2013 (UTC)[]
