Minister of foreign affairs versus minister of state for foreign affairs edit

Boutros Boutros-Ghali's Wikipedia article says he "served as Egypt's Minister of State for Foreign Affairs from 1977 until early 1991" and "then became Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs for several months before moving to the UN." Our article Minister of Foreign Affairs (Egypt) list Boutros-Ghali as serving two times as acting foreign minister, in 1977 and then in 1978–1979, with other people occupying the post from '79 onward. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs' own website has separate pages listing former ministers of foreign affairs [1] and former ministers of state for foreign affairs [2], with Boutros-Ghali serving in the latter position from 1977 to 1991. So it looks like these are two distinct positions. Boutros-Ghali held the "state" position for fourteen years and may have stepped in to the other position for brief periods in 1977 and in 1978–1979 (I'm not sure, because he isn't on the ministry's list of plain foreign ministers). In any case, our articles on Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Egypt) and Minister of Foreign Affairs (Egypt) do not seem to reflect the distinction between the offices of minister for foreign affairs and the minister of state for foreign affairs. I'd appreciate someone who knows more about it trying to clarify the difference in our articles. A. Parrot (talk)

Hello, 45.100.51.69 is making a large amount of edits (along with a few other IPs) to Egyptian food articles, primarily Egyptian cuisine. It would be good to get extra review of these edits to make sure everything is above board as the user is tripping the edit filter frequently. Thanks in advance! Best, -- Classicwiki (talk) If you reply here, please ping me. 06:56, 2 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Developing Countries WikiContest edit

Starting this July, we will see a new contest on the scene - the Developing Countries WikiContest (WP:DCWC)! Think of it as a WikiCup but only for articles and media on developing countries.

Competitors may submit GAs, GTs, FAs, FTs, FLs, FPs, and DYK and ITN entries from/on developing countries to gain points and proceed to further rounds. Points are also awarded to those who review GAs, FAs and FLs.

Egypt is listed as a developing country for the purposes of this contest, so articles related to it are eligible to be submitted for points. I encourage everyone here to sign up and compete with editors from around the world to create high-quality content!

Append your name to the DCWC signup page today!
