Hi Sylvain, as for me you can choose the variant you prefer, I'm always pleased about your contributions anyway. Only, in case there are parallel pages in this WP it might be difficult with the interwikis. -- [[Ruraq:CaTi0604|CaTi0604]] 15:59 13 awr 2011 (UTC)
: Your point with the interwikis make sense, and advocates for one single article for each topic. However, I think it is really ugly to have an article with parts in Peruvian quechua and parts and parts in Ecuadorian kichwa, as it is currently the case for [[Ikwadur]] (these variants don't use the same letters etc., it's like having an article mixing French and Catalan, it might be understandable for speakers of both languages but rather dirty). And in case this wikipedia splits one day into two, it will be a big mess to sort out the Kichwa parts from the Quechua parts. On the other hand, the solution of having two parallel articles might make sense if :
:* The interwikis point to the quechua version if it exists
:* If no quechua version exists, the kichwa version should have the main name and the interwikis (ex. [[Tránsito Amaguaña]]), and if someone wants to create it in quechua, then the existing page sould be moved to [[Tránsito Amaguaña (kichwa)]], without its interwikis, and the new page put in its place with the interwikis. This way, it should be easy to move all the kichwa articles to a new wikipedia in this eventuality.
:* On top of each page which has a quechua and kichwa version, there is a notice for the reader telling that this page also exists is Kichwa / :This page also exists in quechua
:This seems to me a possible policy, that would allow contributions in both variants without ugly mixed-up articles (and possibly attract some contributors from Ecuador). The basic question is : is it suitable to stay in the long run with just one quechua+kichwa wikipedia (in which case, can the articles mix both variants, or should they be in one single variant), or should we prepare a possible future split (for the long term, right now it would make no sense at all to split !), in which case we should create parallel articles. I have no satisfactory answer to that, but I think we should think about it now before it becomes a big mess.
:To make it clearer with an example, I don't know what to do with this [[Humberto Cholango]] article, I want to add stuff, but I for sure don't want to replace everything with kichwa which would be an obvious lack of respect for the previous contributors, and destroy information. I don't really want to mix up both variants either because the result would be hardly understandable and quite ugly, so maybe two parallel articles is the best short-term solution. I don't know, and I'm interested in the opinion of the historical contributors of this wikipedia. --[[Ruraq:Sylvain2803|Sylvain2803]] 16:39 13 awr 2011 (UTC)
