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 (talkcontribs) 09:17, October 31, 2017 (UTC)

Dernières Nouvelles d'Alsace - Édition des AbonnésEdit

Hi all - posting here on the off chance someone might have subscriber access to the online version of Dernières Nouvelles d'Alsace - Édition des Abonnés, and be able to help with a citation from [1] for the article 2018–19 Coupe de France Preliminary Rounds. Let me know on my talk page, or the talk page of the article, please. Cheers, Gricehead (talk) 09:56, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

New article: Verdale-de-l'Hérault (olive)Edit

loi pour une République numériqueEdit

I took this out of the recent translation filter logs. As I don't know French, I am asking for advice about it here. What should I do with it? » Shadowowl | talk 20:38, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

Need help with reference translationEdit

I'm working on Draft:Tom Waltham. I found what looks like a good source,, but it's in French and the various auto-translation tools for some reason can't handle the document format. Would somebody be willing to translate this for me? I realize that's a lot of work; I'd be happy if somebody could read it and summarize the facts that would be most useful as references for Draft:Tom Waltham. -- RoySmith (talk) 14:14, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

Oh, never mind. It looks like I can copy-paste it one paragraph at at time and then the autotranslator can deal with that. -- RoySmith (talk) 14:17, 28 August 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Lycée Edgar-QuinetEdit


The article Lycée Edgar-Quinet has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

All three of these schools are currently red links. Lycée Edgard-Quinet (Paris) is the only one with links from other pages, and those only via Template:Lycées in Paris. There is nothing a disambiguation page can reasonably link to. Please create the articles before disambiguating them.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, pages may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the page to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

Hi there, I have introduced the List of music museums, and a number of French museums are written in French but not in English. Are there users at this project that like to write some or all of these articles? Best regards, Ymnes (talk) 19:36, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

For the record, those are:
