We had some Wikipedia discussion these days, in Wikipedia there are those awful bumperstickers on homepages. But one of them is really useful -> the babel template. While I don't promote copying it here, it would be helpful to know who knows what.
So, to introduce me:
Tapir:German, Turkish, English
tderz: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:TDerz German, English, Dutch, French, intermediate Chinese, but when does one qualify for 'deshi'?
See Deshi :-)
Dutch, English, some German, some French.
You qualify as a Deshi when you choose to promote yourself by selecting the option in your user preferences. The joy of the open wiki approach.
Herman, thank you for your answer.
I read that non-definition there and are still clueless after the first part, while I do not fall into the compulsive part of the phenomical (wrong word?) definition.
Bill's definition is funny and encompasses us all.
According to PeterHB (thank you) it is a self-promotion.
I think that basically, any regular user is a deshi. And although they are often Recent Changes Junkies who suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Wiki Editing Disorder, this is not always the case :-)
I think you're enough of a regular user to be a deshi :-)
Willemien can read German as well. But Japanese and Korean are Chinese to me :)
Dutch and English for me. I can understand a bit of German but not speak or write it.
Bob McGuigan: English, Japanese, French, Spanish, and Russian. At different levels of fluency.
Phelan: Portuguese, English, and a bit of Spanish and French.
RueLue: english, german, a bit of french
English and Chinese fluently for me. Possibly competent in Spanish (I can read it).
