You can help by dealing with the articles listed here as already been transwikied. Follow the instructions below to help out.

This is a log of all articles moved into or out of the English Wikipedia via the Transwiki scheme. If you are completing a transwiki, log which page was moved, and the address it moved to. If a page listed for transfer was deleted, please record the reason why. You should sign your name using ~~~~.

For information about transwiki-ing marked articles and listing them here, further details of the transwiki scheme can be found at m:Transwiki.


There are three possible routes for an article after a transwiki. After you have checked any of the following articles and ensured one of these steps has been taken, be sure to mark it by striking through the listing with "<s> </s>" tags and note how it was resolved. For example:

Note: any red links (deleted articles) below should always be crossed out as they have been successfully dealt with.

(1.) Send to VfD

Please only strike out an entry after a VfD listing has been resolved, so that the result can be logged here.

After moving an article and its edit history, the article may be submitted for deletion. Submit it to VfD if there is no possible redirect for the article (see route #2) and it has no potential for encyclopedic growth (#3). Follow the normal deletion procedure. You may want to leave the following boilerplate text in place of the original article: The contents of this page and the page's history have been moved to interwiki:Transwiki:Article Name via the transwiki system, all future edits should go there. ~~~~

In the case of Wiktionary, there is a handy template that you can use that combines the {{vfd}} tag with the above boilerplate. Replace the original article with the {{moved to Wiktionary}} tag and then follow the remainder of the instructions for nominating an article for deletion.

(2.) Create a redirect

See Wikipedia:Redirect

If the article's has an unconventional name, sometimes a redirect is the best solution. The transwikied article should be merged (if necessary) and redirected to the proper article title. Note: this may need to be created. If the name is a possible search term, regardless of prior content, it would also be a uselful redirect. Again, merge any missing information pertinent in the proper article. If the topic is overly specific, and therefore has very little potential for growth, it is preferable to redirect the transwikied article to a more general article.

(3.) Expand the article

See Wikipedia:How to edit a page

Of course if the article has an obvious potential for encyclopedic growth, and has a conventional name, then you can help by expanding it!
