Versailles in the Paris task force?Edit

Hi there hello, so I just spontaneously joined the Paris task force and got into tagging "Paris-related" articles, but I wonder wether or not articles that are "Versailles-related" should be tagged and improved as well. I'd be happy if anybody'd give me the answer to that. Update: I'll just tag the "Versailles-related" ones, just tell me if I shouldn't :) - CarolingianCitizen (talk) 10:02, 7 August 2022 (CET)

There is a requested move discussion at Talk:France-Germany border#Requested move 15 October 2022 that may be of interest to members of this WikiProject. Bermicourt (talk) 07:59, 24 October 2022 (UTC)

Would anyone like to create a stub for Pieds-rouges? - left-wing / anticolonial activists in Algeria - see [ ]Edit

(Not to be confused with existing articles about Malbec (grapes / wine) (redirect from Pied Rouge), or Pie Rouge des Plaines "red-pied cattle".)

I might, but I'm busy. Ping me in a week or two and I'll try.
(P.S. that super-long title makes adding an edit summary a bit difficult; can you shorten it by chopping it off after the question mark? You can move the rest of it from the title, into your comment, if needed. Thanks.) Mathglot (talk) 02:40, 3 December 2022 (UTC)

Feedback request about "Milieu" / "organized crime in France"Edit

Announcing suite of Legifrance templatesEdit

There are three templates available for editors who wish to cite laws or other legal texts at Légifrance, France's website for every law or legal text in existence, or that ever was, going back centuries. They are:

  • {{Legifrance}}, a template to generate an external link to a French law (an enhanced port of the French template);
  • {{Cite Legifrance}}, a wrapper for {{Cite web}} which references Légifrance and adds some additional parameters to be able to cite a specific law; and
  • {{sfn Legifrance}}, a mashup of {{sfn}} and {{Cite Legifrance}} which allows you to easily write a short footnote that links to a specific law.

Please have a look at the doc pages, and try out the templates, and if there is anything that is unclear or could be improved, please note it below, or on the Talk page of the templates. Thanks, Mathglot (talk) 11:06, 13 January 2023 (UTC)
