- Kia ora! I've been doing a few minor edits over in the English Wikipedia for a while and just sort of drifted over here at some stage from curiosity. My Maori is not even basic, so I won't be able to add much content, but I figure a link or word here and there... --Zeborah 00:36, 5 September 2005 (UTC)
OK, I've had a look at your "en" stuff. You obviously have a way of getting things right, a possible exception being your prediction that your "Directionality" piece needed merciless editing: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Writing_system&diff=7890551&oldid=7832435
Maybe the experts who could be merciless (rather than just making sympathetic additions) are still scratching their heads.
Strong hint of west-central Ōtautahi (and academia) in your contributions. I still call myself a Mainlander by Adoption, despite having moved back to the smaller island more than half my life ago.
If you have any Maori-speaking acquaintances, I hope you can suggest to them that this site has good potential for assisting the revival of the language and might have value as a free storehouse for course content for teachers.

Article titles & macrons[edit source]
To change an article title, "Move" the article. You get presented with an edit box containing the existing name for you to change. Simple as that! (So get your macron letter ready copied on your clipboard for maximum simplicity.)
Any of your friends been pointed in this direction yet? (|:-D Robin Patterson 05:29, 24 September 2005 (UTC)
- Thanks! I've been plugging Wikipedia in general to all my librarian and student friends, but the few Maori-speakers I know I don't see everyday. Next time I bump into them, though, I'll proselytise to your heart's content. :-) --Zeborah 19:58, 24 September 2005 (UTC)
