Today's Wikipedian 10 years ago[edit]

Ten years!

Those were the days, eh. Be nice to go back 20 years and start all over. Or even 30 .... Soap 17:24, 26 May 2019 (UTC)

Algonquian languages[edit]

Hi! This is simply out of curiosity, as I am not a student of Native American languages. Could you please explain to me the one tiiiny difference in the Algonquian language maps, which appears to be the removal of a tiny area of northern California from the previous map's coverage area? Just wondering, as I live in California. Jeff in CA (talk) 00:12, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

@Jeff in CA: Thanks for asking. Algic is a language family that includes all of the Algonquian languages spread across the eastern US & Canada and two more distantly related ones in northern California. The two non-Algonquian languages are packed into a territory so small that it appears that either a bot or a person simply didn't see them and labeled the two maps as duplicates. What I did was restore the map that got deleted by rubbing out the pink area in California. I also changed the color scheme slightly just in case a bot was the initial cause of the map getting deleted. Soap 19:18, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
