Hoi,
Sorry for some nit-picking. It is only one variation of NDS it is not a
variation of NL. The problem with NDS is that there has been a formal
adoption of one variant of NDS that is only for Germany.
Thanks,
 GerardM

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikipedia Kenya - copyright infringement

2016-04-11 Thread Amir E. Aharoni
Wikipedia goes by languages, never by countries. (There's
nds-nl.wikipedia.org, where nl kind of stands for “Netherlands”, but it's
still a language variant for Netherlands. In any case, it's very much an
anomaly.)

Wikimedia Kenya would be ke.wikimedia.org, if it existed.

No - Swahili is the language spoken in Kenya (officially), although other
languages are used too. There is no "Kenyan Wikipedia" as far as I'm aware!

http://www.wikipedia.or.ke/ now has ads dancing around the screen, the
donate link is gone, and the privacy policy and general disclaimer
have been removed.

It only has 107,391 articles according to special:statistics.

I took a look at this. From my brief investigation, this appears to be a
good-faith effort by someone to locally host a Kenyan version of Wikipedia.
The donation button properly links to https://donate.wikimedia.org. The
server geolocates to Estonia. I am forwarding this report to Legal. I hope
that formal legal action is not necessary and that if the maintainers of
the website are responsive that a mutually agreeable settlement can be
arranged.

Thanks for finding this, Teles.

 Hi, everyone.

 Somehow I was directed to this project in a search on Google:
 http://www.wikipedia.or.ke/

 Does anybody know what is that project?

 It seems to have a large content in English but pages doesn't mention
 authorship properly. I am assuming it uses Wikipedia content in violation
 of copyrights.

 It also uses the Wikipedia logo improperly. Not sure if a mirror can do
 that...

 Regards,
 Teles
