personnal

  • Thought you might want to know. "personal" (per'-son-ul) means something that belongs to you. "personnal" isn't a word, however "personnel" (per-son-ell') (emphasis on the last syllable) refers to a group of people employed by a group or organization. As always, great job with the English! :) (Admin 17:01, 3 January 2008 (EST))

White bullets

  • I like the white bullets you added with the blue background. It has a cool holidays feel to it. (MiamiVolts (talk) 15:54, 7 January 2008 (EST))
    • Yeah, well, I wanted to do something more pimpy (I think that's how you say to mean something too much styled, bling bling spirit^^) but javascript (badly) isn't allowed! Anyway, thanks for the template, good job with the freakin' space-wiki-language. God I hate this syntax! ( Frenchflo.gif (talk) 15:57, 7 January 2008 (EST))
      • It was indeed a little bit of work to get the formatting to work correctly, but I think it was worth it. (MiamiVolts (talk) 16:01, 7 January 2008 (EST)
        • Yeah it avoid such a waste of time to create each link one by one. Dyncamic rulz! Good job. ( Frenchflo.gif (talk) 16:02, 7 January 2008 (EST))

Translation

Hey. Yeah I know there isn't any link with Heroes but you can help me, I just want to translate "Faire grossir", which mean, when applying to a product, that by eating it, you will gain weight, become fat.. I don't know, how would you say that : This product ... <- fill in the blanks. Thanks! (-- Frenchflo.gif (talk) 15:34, 9 January 2008 (EST))

  • There isn't really a popular term for that. Saying that a product makes you gain weight or is fatty would be about the same.--Bob (talk) 15:45, 9 January 2008 (EST)
    • Faty, sound good to me. Btw, nice new signature Bob, highly coloured and not faty! (-- Frenchflo.gif (talk) 15:47, 9 January 2008 (EST))

Hey there...

It's good to see you around, FF! (Cool new sig, too!) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:44, 22 January 2008 (EST)

  • Hey, nice work on the animated gif signature! But you should use the imagelink template so 1) you can specify the alt text, 2) you can link to your userpage. Currently, clicking on the image takes you to the image (not your userpage).--MiamiVolts (talk) 20:09, 22 January 2008 (EST)
    • Hey, thanks :) Yeah Miami you'r right, I tried to do this in html but wiki doesn't allow that.. I'll try the template you linked. Thanks :) -- Frenchflo.gif (talk) 05:27, 23 January 2008 (EST)
      • Hey, just to let you know - something weird's happening to your sig. Chrisyudbsname.JPGChrisyudbstalk.JPG 06:29, 23 January 2008 (EST)

On the attitudes of the French toward the French Canadians and non-native speakers of French....

I hear stories (my aunt included) of those learning French being given the cold shoulder when they try to use French while they are in France. My aunt, while being a foreign exchange student about 25 years ago, got lost in Paris, traid to ask for help, only to find that no one could understand her and herself brushed off because of it. Classmates in my Spanish class who have studied French and were in France have sensed that the general attitude of the French is "if you cant speak French correctly, F*** you" and that their attitude toward French Canadians is less that favorable. I'd like get the French perspective on this before I formulate my opinion on it. Might you provide some?--SacValleyDweller (talk) 03:47, 9 March 2008 (EDT)
