Article count[Fetola Motswedi]

Could someone who knows this language please add the article count to the Main Page using the {{NUMBEROFARTICLES}} template? (It currently shows 1,716 articles.) Please display it in an "obvious" way (say, bold and linked to Special:Statistics) so someone like me, who doesn't know the language, can still tell it's the article count. Thanks. - dcljr 09:28, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

some intro[Fetola Motswedi]

Welcome to Wikipedia, a community project with the goal to create in every language from a neutral point of view a free encyclopedia on the internet. Wikipedia is free of charge, and can be used to find information even without logging in, but also to add information or to edit. Because of this, Wikipedia can give no guarantee for the correctness of the available information. You can experiment in the Sandbox. This Tswana Wikipedia counts 1,716 articles.

I translated this from dutch, and I think this might be, if translated in Tswana, a good intro for on the main page. Further I think there are some things that should be translated from English, such as en:Wikipedia (or a part of it) and en:GFDL (the license, but again a part of it is good enough). Some disclaimerpages should be filled with "we guarentee nothing etc" I think. This is a pretty boring job, I know...
For later you could translate some day "The free encyclopedia" to Tswana, so that the logo can be adapted. But that might be a thing to do if there is some more community.
I guess some systemmessages have to be translated as well. I think the most important is "All text is available under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License (see Copyrights for details).

Wikipedia® is a registered trademark of the Wikimedia Foundation, Inc." what should be at the bottom of every page, in Mediawiki:Copyright. You can find more systemmessages in Special:Allmessages, but please be carefull with editing them. As long as you change aq story-text, no problem, but take care of odd symbols etc and dollar-signs like $1. They might be a variable. Effeietsanders 16:58, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

Hello, I'm Italian and I have created Template:Languages (wikipedia in other languages). I don't speak your language. If any Setswana wikipedia user can traslate template in Setswana, i can create the other wikimedia projets template. This template is my gift to Setswana Wikipedia. -- 09:42, 16 Firikgong 2008 (UTC)

This Wiki is so small and does not have that many users therefore I think that the protection on the Main Page should be removed, auto confirmed is fine but not sysop. Please I would like the administrator to lower the protection to auto confirmed. --Zarienah (talk) 15:28, 24 Ngwanatsele 2012 (UTC)
Lowered protection to edit=autoconfirmed, move=sysop. Regards, Ajraddatz (talk) 15:29, 24 Ngwanatsele 2012 (UTC)
