Hi Animus, let me know here if you have any problems or need any help. This is for your convenience so you wont have to go to a new window and open your email. --Axius (talk) 09:29, 29 June 2013 (PDT)


tha czech name is: 72 pannen

Animus (talk) 01:55, 2 July 2013 (PDT)

hi Animus great work. Sahabah (talk | contribs) has linked 72 Pannen and Korán on the Main Page. They are also linked from the english version and Google will pick up these pages soon (or may have already) and they will start coming up in search engine results.
If you feel like doing more stuff but dont have any favorite articles/topics that you want to translate next, I think this would be a great choice: Qur'an, Hadith and Scholars:Women (link for cz article). This article collects some of the most important Islamic teachings relating to women (as seen from the menu on the right of that page, some topics have their own pages like Rape). The article is roughly twice as large as compared to the 72 virgins. One choice is to translate first only a portion of it (pick whatever sections you think are the best) and then expand them later. But this page when done completely will be very powerful and will be linked on CZ websites and forums as its a developed country where women's rights are fully recognized and there's no/little discrimination, such a page will be important.
Another good option is translating Template:Random_quran_quotes, where the 'read more' link can go to a page called "Sampling of Quranic verses". This page is much smaller than the QHS for Women page. Let me know and I can start a sandbox page for that article or you can do it yourself by typing this and clicking on the red link: [[Name of page]], produces: Name of page
Another thing: Pages can be renamed through: Drop down at top right and choose "Move". --Axius (talk) 20:25, 2 July 2013 (PDT)

Thanks for your help! --Sahabah (talk) 05:32, 4 July 2013 (PDT)

That´s all right :-) Have a nice day! Animus (talk) 13:26, 4 July 2013 (PDT)

Quran and category

Hi Animus. I've fixed the link now so the template is working:[1]

Could you please translate "Random Quotes from the Qur'an" and "read more", so it can be added to the Czech quote template?

I was also wondering why you removed the Czech category from the Czech template category? [2] I was thinking this would make it easier in the future for you and other Czech editors to find them. --Sahabah (talk) 10:54, 5 July 2013 (PDT)

Hi, it´s confusing on the list of the articles. Are you sure it is helpful to have it there? Readers are not interresting in it. Animus (talk) 12:22, 5 July 2013 (PDT)

Good point. I'll think of something else. --Sahabah (talk) 12:27, 5 July 2013 (PDT)

Great :-) Thank you Animus (talk) 12:28, 5 July 2013 (PDT)

Pes a islám (Korán, Prorok Mohamed a islámští učenci o psech)

Hi Animus! In reply to you're message on my talk page: Sure, no problem. That's a great idea. But I noticed there are a few empty sections at the bottom: [3] You may have missed them by accident. Could you finish them first?--Sahabah (talk) 10:11, 6 July 2013 (PDT)

Hi, I have been continually still working on it. I restructure some text to get more clear structure in it and more standardised view.. So it is still getting better.

Thank you Animus (talk) 00:47, 7 July 2013 (PDT)

Bringing structure into "QHS: Women"

Hi Animus. I'm replying here as well, in case you miss it on my talk page. I had a quick look and it looks great. Yes, please do go ahead and restructure the English page. Thank you! Also, in the future, are you okay with me just replying on one talk page? This is normally how we do things here. We keep discussions on a single page (the talk page it was started on). --Sahabah (talk) 20:08, 8 July 2013 (PDT)

Animus, nice work on this page, makes more sense for example "Menstruation" was a main heading before. Thanks for fixing it. --Axius (talk) 07:06, 14 July 2013 (PDT)

Incomplete translations

Hello Animus. I've reverted your last edit to the Czech hub page. The "O webu Wikiislam" article has a few paragraphs that are yet to be translated (here, here and here):

WikiIslam is a community edited website which focuses on the critique of Islam, whilst also allowing pro-Islamic responses in separate articles. It is run on the same software that Wikipedia and other similar sites use.
In December 2006, Göran Larsson presented a paper on WikiIslam at a conference in Sweden. At that point in time, the site was barely out of its infancy, only having been open to the public for three months, and Larsson was very critical. Today, with its new policies, new guidelines, thousands of more pages and the inclusion of pro-Islamic content aimed at presenting a positive image of Islam, WikiIslam remains the same only in name. But even back then in its primitive form, Larsson admitted that he could not label all the site "Islamophobic" in nature.[1]

Contrary to what is sometimes claimed,[2] WikiIslam has not received any attention from news agencies such as the Associated Press (AP), however, its non-partisan approach to criticism has led to the site being linked to or referenced by various notable sites such as[3] and[4] It has also been cited by Dr. Heather Deegan in her book, Africa Today: Culture, Economics, Religion, Security,[5] Prof. Carlos Brebbia in his book, Disaster Management and Human Health Risk III: Reducing Risk, Improving Outcomes,[6] and Dr. Stefan Kirchner in his paper published in the Baltic Journal of Law & Politics.[7]
