PS - Thanks for all the work so far on Canadian English. We need more of that, but you probably noticed that from the woefully underpopulated category.
Hello there I'd also like to reiterate Encylopety's comments above, I too often enter colloquial/dialectal English here (Geordie) but in the instance of toon please could you use the Edit Summary when removing content so we know why it has been editted in that fashion. Strickly speaking we would usually go throught he requests for verification process first before removing something - but since your Canadian there's no real point hence using Edit Summaries helps admins like myself determine if good faith edits have been made. Keep up the good work your contributions a much appreciated.--Williamsayers79 14:53, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
To begin I must apologize for not have responded earlier to your message of Nov. 5, but the fact is that I didn't see it until now. Had I not needed to visit Wiktionary to look up something I might still have not seen it. These days I spend most of my time in Wikisource, and there are also several other better ways to contact me on this.
I didn't really make any change to the draft of the Wikimedia Canada by-laws except in the heading to say that it was still an option to be considered. In August I made a number of comments on the talk page to the Steering Committee's draft, but they have not seen fit to respond to any of these comments. It seems as though the committee is no longer operational.
I would like to see WM-Canada go ahead, and I did respond to an offlist message from Geoff Plourde a couple weeks ago when he asked a similar question. He did make a few comments to the steering committee draft, but I have heard nothing further from him.
You mentioned getting closer to Foundation approval. Have there been developments about this? I haven't seen anything on the WMC meta pages, which I do check from time to time. Eclecticology 09:44, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
