Hi, we're gathering a lot of images here, some duplicated, and when I scout around the different Wikipedia's I see how many images aren't on Commons that the other projects could really do with. Anyway, there is also very little chat here so I was wondering if anyone was interested in there being a branch of WikiProject European Union from the English wikipedia here? Just a basic page where people from the different projects can discuss the images and getting/making new ones, common problems, what images are needed. You know, getting the different Wikipedia's talking and getting coordination on Commons. If anyone is interested, please say below and if we get a few people we can open up a page and see what happens.- J Logant: 20:47, 17 December 2007 (UTC)


Why was the page moved to Unio Europaea? English name would be a tad more identifiable to most people.- J Logan t: 19:54, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

We use too much English anyway, the Latin name is far more neutral. Aaker 11:57, 29 March 2008 (UTC)
We use English, not Latin by default. Patstuart (talk) 01:09, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
Who are we? You! I use Swedish by default. The EU has 23 official names, why should we use just your language? (Because you think you're superior to everybody else?) In fact the biggest language in the EU is German and not English. I'll change it back. Aaker 15:00, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
I support User:JLogan and User:Alton and User:Patstuart. LUCPOL 20:58, 3 May 2008 (UTC)
User:JLogan and User:Alton seem to have different opinions. We can vote about it. Aaker 23:51, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Brothers, brothers, we should be struggling together! Let's put pride of our own language behind us and stick to English for simplicity's sake shall we? I never knew the Swedes were so French :) User:Cohen brian

Latin may be neutral, but not that many people read it these days hence it isn't that helpful (this is an encyclopaedia, not a European Council). I'd prefer Swedish to Latin, though English is most common. We do use too much of it of course, but if we go for anything else then we'll be arguing over who's language is more relevant. English to keep it simple, though to argue about something else, Cohen brian: brothers? Isn't that a bit sexist? :p - J Logan t: 22:36, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
what the f***?/quis habeo s**? Ego amo reor ut latin mos fio persona "European Union" lingua. Miser, is est non iens ut venio nunc. Ego sum proinde adversus propono permoveo. I like to think that latin will become the official "European Union" language. Unfortunately, it is not going to happen soon. I am therefore opposing the proposed move.

German is the third national language of Luxembourg. "Luxemburg". Only the French and Luxembourgian versions are listed now!
