Subject: Interlanguage Links - The Interwiki-Link-Checker

Beware, shameless Propaganda is on its way. It's about the 
Interwiki-Link-Checker 
(http://tools.wikimedia.de/~flacus/IWLC/start.php)
by de:user:Flacus, a 
brilliant tool which has facilitated the generation of >100.000 
Interlanguage-Links within the last six month.

There are still lots of articles in en:Wikipedia which have the same 
name as articles in other Wikipedias, but are *not* linked by an 
Inter-Wiki-Link (e.g. en-de: ~6300 articles, en-fr: ~6500 articles and 
en-es ~3100 articles, as of the dumps from February 2006).

This articles have been listed for many language combinations by 
de:user:SirJective. But not all articles with identical names are about 
the same subject, so human work is needed to decide whether an 
Interwiki-Link can be automatically inserted by a bot. In order to make 
this decision easy and comfortable, there is a brilliant tool called 
Interwiki-Link-Checker written by de:Benutzer:Flacus.

You might want to check the FAQ at 
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benutzer:Flacus/Wikipedia_Interwiki-Link-Checker/en

or just try it at http://tools.wikimedia.de/~flacus/IWLC/start.php
Thanks for your time and (maybe even) help, I can just invite you to try 
the tool, it's fun and you're reading (and editing) quite a lot of stuff 
you wouldn't stumble upon otherwise.

If you do like the tool and want to spread the word, visit 
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benutzer:Flacus/Wikipedia_Interwiki-Link-Checker/Propaganda,

help and new ideas are welcome.

Cheers, de:Benutzer:Mdangers
