Napoleon ReassessmentEdit

Napoleon, an article that you or your project may be interested in, has been nominated for an individual good article reassessment. If you are interested in the discussion, please participate by adding your comments to the reassessment page. If concerns are not addressed during the review period, the good article status may be removed from the article.

Jean HoeufftEdit

Please feel free to improve the article Jean Hoeufft, a 17th century French banker, who also worked on draining the Marais Poitevin. Mathglot (talk)

racism in FranceEdit

Concerning the part about jews during german occupation in WWII : the yellow star is not a french decision taken in the october 1940 in the ' statu des juifs ' ( jews statu )but a german decree in occupied zone from may 1942 ,( the yellow star has never existed in Vichy zone even after this territory has been annexed to german zone in november 1942) and the round-ups from summer 1942 have been done in part by french officials and police but on german request , ordered by Himmler and Heydrich ( the french made the choice to arrest first foreign jews , so 80 % of french citizen jews have survived the war which is an high rate among all occupied countries ) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.2.193.195 (talkcontribs) 09:17, October 31, 2017 (UTC)

Disputed titleEdit

Please comment at Talk:Le Marais#Disputed title; your feedback would be welcome! Mathglot (talk) 08:50, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

A new newsletter directory is out!Edit

A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one. If your WikiProject and its taskforces have newsletters (even inactive ones), or if you know of a missing newsletter (including from sister projects like WikiSpecies), please include it in the directory! The template can be a bit tricky, so if you need help, just post the newsletter on the template's talk page and someone will add it for you.

French stereotypesEdit

Should an article called Stereotypes of French people exist I feel there is enough third person sources to support such an article.Dwanyewest (talk) 12:55, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Here are some sources [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14]. Dwanyewest (talk) 12:58, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Merge proposal WikiProject French departmentsEdit

I am a member of wikiproject merge going through the large merger backlog and found a proposal to merge WikiProject French departments here. I believe this discussion should be revived since it seems highly sensible to merge inactive 4 people projects into larger ones. Trialpears (talk) 17:29, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

It looks like we're in agreement. I would add WikiProject French régions and French Collaboration Project to be merged here. Regards, Comte0 (talk) 16:47, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

    Y Merger complete. I have now performed the original merger. There were no active members to add to the member list. All articles covered by the project were already claimed by WP France. All things on their to-do list seemed to have been done. The only thing I actually merged was the structure recommendations to Wikipedia:WikiProject France/Departments article structure. For the other pages I think @Comte0: should make a new discussion section with a separate rationale for Wikipedia:French Collaboration Project. For Wikipedia:WikiProject French régions I'll do the same thing as was done for the departments article since it's basically identical and I couldn't find active members.

À la volonté du peopleEdit

This song Do you hear the people sing? from Les Misérables is very famous in different languages, and now is having a resurface with the 2019 Hong Kong anti-extradition bill protests. It would be nice if somebody translated the article to French as the song is originally in that language.--MaoGo (talk) 15:40, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

French referencesEdit

This is the second time in as many days I have run across an article in AfC that has all non-English references. While WP:RSN is the most appropriate forum, I thought coming here made more sense since they are all non-English. Can anyone tell me if the following publications would be considered reliable for establishing notability in Wikipedia?--CNMall41 (talk) 20:48, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

L'Obs is reliable, rfm depends on the exact ref, others are questionable. Which article are you talking about ? Regards, Comte0 (talk) 22:35, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, Comte0. The draft has been moved to mainspace by another editor to Bureau d'Accueil et d'Accompagnement des Migrants. If you can take a quick look it would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. --CNMall41 (talk) 19:37, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

1XXX in FranceEdit

Loveroftheworld14710 has created (at least dozens, if not hundreds) of "1XXX in France" articles. For the ones in the 20th century, he has summarily removed "sports" entries, (mostly Tour de France), and completely changed the category structure. I see no other changes in the ones I've checked, but it might be a good idea if someone active in the project took a look at them, and commented on those in the ANI thread WP:ANI#Loveroftheworld14710 and 20XX in Country articles. I feel an immediate block and WP:NUKE is needed, but people here would have a better idea if the edits are entirely damage or merely mostly damage. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 05:16, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
