Any additions to the Wiki are awesome. I think your French help is a great addition.

If we have more multi-lingual additions in the future there are different ways to integrate that into the Wiki as well.
i'm not drunk enough to tell you the truth

Personally I don't think this is great. We also have 4 (*) pages in Taiwanese/Chinese (??) (last real edits were in 2013), and now we have 3 in french. Nobody checks these. They hang around with outdated info forever. Personally, I want to delete them all and keep the wiki in english, unless somebody steps up and really does the work. And not just adding 3 pages once and then disappearing forever.

We cannot check pages in languages we cannot read. (For some infomation I posted in the chinese forum about this problem a while back : http://smf.cataclysmdda.com/index.php?topic=10784.msg241395#msg241395 )

And it isn't that I dislike the French or Chinese, I just think it is better to not show players outdated information, and any time people of a foreign language have is probably better spent on adding translations to the base game than editing the wiki.

*: yeah, I don't know the real numbers, might be a few more than 3/4 but I doubt it is more than 10 per language.
