Language improvements[edit]

I don't know if you answered my call for language revision of the article on Kuusinen that I wrote here some week ago, or if you found it by random, but I would in any case like to express my gratitude! It contributes to me feeling confidence in writing articles with less than perfect English. /Tuomas 16:32, 28 Apr 2004 (UTC)


I did indeed "answer the call" as it were. I think the articles could still be improved further though, so you may not want to remove your call just yet. -- Kowh 16:52, 28 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Wikimedia Canada[edit]

Hi there! I'd like to invite you to explore Wikimedia Canada, and create a list of people interested in forming a local chapter for our nation. A local chapter will help promote and improve the organization, within our great nation. We'd also like to encourage everyone to suggest projects for our national chapter to participate in.
