Admin rights request[Gyara masomin]
Hello All, after my second one-year administrator access expired, I am planning to request to be given administrator access rights again. My Hausa is still far from perfect but I am able to identify vandalism and you can of course check my admin logs: deletions, blocks and protections. For instance, over the coming months I am planning to delete step by step all the automated translations in this category. After that the Hausa Wikipedia will be more or less cleaned of automated translations and will only have legitimate content. Kindly type "Support" below if you support this. Thank you for your trust, na gode sosai, –DonCamillo (talk) 11:22, 30 Mayu 2019 (UTC)

Update on the consultation about office actions[Gyara masomin]
Last month, the Wikimedia Foundation's Trust & Safety team announced a future consultation about partial and/or temporary office actions. We want to let you know that the draft version of this consultation has now been posted on Meta.
This is a draft. It is not intended to be the consultation itself, which will be posted on Meta likely in early September. Please do not treat this draft as a consultation. Instead, we ask your assistance in forming the final language for the consultation.
For that end, we would like your input over the next couple of weeks about what questions the consultation should ask about partial and temporary Foundation office action bans and how it should be formatted. Please post it on the draft talk page. Our goal is to provide space for the community to discuss all the aspects of these office actions that need to be discussed, and we want to ensure with your feedback that the consultation is presented in the best way to encourage frank and constructive conversation.
Please visit the consultation draft on Meta-wiki and leave your comments on the draft’s talk page about what the consultation should look like and what questions it should ask.
Thank you for your input! -- The Trust & Safety team 08:03, 16 ga Augusta, 2019 (UTC)

Admin Request[Gyara masomin]
Hello Fellows, I would like to inform you that I'm requesting Administrator right access again after the expiration of my first Temporary access, in order to keep what I have been doing to improve the project. Seeing that we still don't have local permanent Admins yet.

Admin rights request[Gyara masomin]
Hello everyone/Barka da rana,
I had only temporary admin rights here and lost them a while ago. My Hausa is still very little (kadan-kadan) but I believe I can help here. I have a lot of experience in editing Wikipedia (mostly the French version but also this one with 5000+ edits and 1000+ stubs created). I need admin rights to be able, for instance, to finally clean this category, to update the main page, block vandals who are damaging the project, da dai sauransu. If you agree, kindly sign below and express your support. Nagode sosai, –DonCamillo (talk) 08:06, 17 Disamba 2019 (UTC)
- Strong Support, Yes! DonCamillo suppose to be granted permanent Administrator as per this project is, he's been supporting each and everyone of us, he is like a guide here specially in areas where we need improvement and I hope if granted the rights would be able to do more of what he's been doing. Regards. The Living love (talk) 13:17, 17 Disamba 2019 (UTC)
- Strong Support - I support DonCamillo as Administrator again, becouse he have helped Hausa Wikipedia by protecting pages, blocking users, rolling back vandalism, helping new editors learn the ropes, and other important tasks. - Abubakar A Gwanki (talk) 18:16, 20 Disamba 2019 (UTC)
- Strong Support - I strongly agree to grant him the permission, DonCamillo is genarous, honest, and kind, also an expert in editing Wikipedia and other sister projects, if the permission is granted to him, he will work morethan he does, he will develope Hausa wiki with best of his effort. given him permission is part of our success all. Yours Anasskoko (talk) 10:46, 18 Disamba 2019 (UTC)
- Strong Support - A helpful, amicable user who made my initial experience on Hausa Wikipedia very pleasant. I hope to learn a lot from him in the coming future. He has my full support for adminship. Sabon Harshe (talk) 16:31, 24 Disamba 2019 (UTC)
Categorising articles[Gyara masomin]
As you may have noticed, I am on a big drive to categorise articles on Hausa Wikipedia. How can I find uncategorised articles other than repeatedly clicking on "random page"? Sabon Harshe (talk) 16:34, 24 Disamba 2019 (UTC)
- You're welcome to Hausa Wikipedia, I've noticed your effort to the movement we support and I hope you like the place and wanted to stay, here is a link to almost all the important pages you may be wanting SpecialPages.The Living love (talk) 19:17, 24 Disamba 2019 (UTC)
- Thank you for the welcome The Living love. I do hope to stay and contribute long-term. I am in the process of starting new articles about the many different languages and peoples of the Middle Belt (Plateau, Kaduna, Bauchi, and surroundings), so it would help if there could be someone who knows how to translate sentences about linguistics from English to Hausa.

Sentences to translate[Gyara masomin]
Here are some basic sentences that I would like to translate, use, and adapt for more language articles, and of course for Harshen Mumuye.

- Branch (or subgroup) = dangi
- Language family =
- Number of speakers = Adadin masu magana
- Location = Wuri
- Locations = Wurare
- Pronunciation (I have translated this as sauti.) = Furucci ( because sauti is sound)
- Proto-language =
Geography stub sentences (User:DonCamillo, who has been creating many geography stubs, might be able to help out.):

There is an academic journal called Harsunan Nijeriya (Languages of Nigeria) that is published in Kano. There are many terms in linguistics have been used in Hausa linguistics publications and textbooks. We can make a list of Hausa linguistics words if we can find those books.
- Thank you for the suggestions, it would really help if we can get the published journal, I translated the above sentances and would keep on helping you when you need them. And regarding Hausa wikitionary, We are planning to start a project there, to write 1000key important Hausa language words and their meanings.The Living love (talk) 21:33, 26 Disamba 2019 (UTC)
Google Translate template[Gyara masomin]
- It is difficult to say, a lot of them have been deleted over the years and I believe there are that many left (except, I'm currently cleaning it and should be done soon...). But having a tag would be very useful. We also need one for articles when a part of the content is in English.
- Could a Hausa native speaker translate these two sentences? I can create these templates very easily. Nagode sosai! –DonCamillo (talk) 06:50, 27 Disamba 2019 (UTC)
- "Parts of this article have probably been written using machine translation. Kindly rephrase them or delete them."
- "Parts of this article are not written in Hausa. Kindly translate them or delete them."
Articles to translate[Gyara masomin]
We can also translate these English Wikipedia articles of British linguists who have contributed a lot to Hausa linguistics.
Language names[Gyara masomin]
Thanks to User:Abubakar A Gwanki and User:The Living love for their recently article created articles Ut-Ma'in and Shuwa-Zamani, both of which are endangered languages of the Hausasphere. I would generally recommend using the Hausa names provided in Harsunan Najeriya#Sunayen harsuna under the Harshe (sunan Hausa) column. For each Wikipedia language edition, it is generally the standard to use the local exonym (name that the majority ethnic group applies to the local people and language) unless it is derogatory. Language names in Hausa can be identified by the -anci suffix, as with Turanci and Latanci. The names used on English Wikipedia are standard ISO 639 standard names that not Hausa locals may not be familiar with. Ultimately, our goal is to make these articles useful to the Hausa community and hopefully attract more contributors.
Najeriya vs. Nijeriya[Gyara masomin]
- There is no agreement on which form to use, even the most important medias in Hausa don't necessarily use a standardized spelling (BBC uses Najeriya and Nijeriya, for instance...). In general I think it is difficult to choose and different spellings can coexist. Moreover very different spellings are used by people who are also English speakers (in Nigeria) and those who are also French speakers (in Niger, Benin, Cameroun, Chad...). The best way to handle this might be to allow different spellings to coexist, using redirects, mentioning alternative spellings at the beginning of articles... –DonCamillo (talk) 06:42, 27 Disamba 2019 (UTC)
