Welcome to Sinhala Wikipedia mate. You're the same Greenleaf from en.wiki right? You were correct about sri lankava. Hope to see more contributions from you. Chin Dayaratne 15:31, 12 September 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome, Chin. And yes, I'm the same Greenleaf.
I don't know whether there's a real future for a sinhala wikipedia, but at least as a romantic policy it's worth giving a try. I also share your sentiments about that television celebity sinhala professor. It's a tragedy when serious academics understand that they can earn money and fame much easily if they choose to talk BS in front of television cameras and in leasure sections of sunday newspapers - for the enjoyment of lazy petty bourgeois women. I'm amazed that this is the same guy who did great programs like "thun path rata" in SLBC during early '80ies.
and about 'ingirisi': I'm not in to hela hawla movement (although I highly admire Kumarathunga); I just found that easier compared to the proper way of typing "enGREEsi" which requires jumping through hoops. (anyways, after all that work, it doesn't render right on anything) Any idea why they chose only "rakaranse" and "yanse" for that gimmic especially when there was enough space available even for kundaliya that no one uses? - Greenleaf 09:31, 14 September 2005 (UTC)

RE: Stray articles[සංස්කරණය]

Yes greanleaf. I've noticed that too. Apparently some people had thought si is the encyclopedia for Slovenia. Only an sysop can delete the articles.

Which program do you use to type sinhala? I don't have XPSP2 so it's not possible for me to use the sinhala enablement thing. But I found this really nice little program called Sinhala text box. A friend of mine called Dasith designed it and he won an award from the SL govt for it.

This program has a small app called sinhala keyboard driver and you just have to launch it and you can start typing in ms word using kaputa/kandy/wijesekera layouts.

The best thing is that this also supports something they call "singlish". How it works is, you just have to type something in english and it'll automatically convert it to sinhala. For example, if you type wikipeedia in english the program will type it as wikipedia in sinhala. It's really nice.

Right now, it's just good ol' character map with XP. :-) I'm not familiar with wijesekara anyway, so i'll still have to pick keys. kaputa is a bit intuitive though, i might consider using something if it comes with kaputa layout.
I remember seeing the 'singlish' program - but at that time didn't see much use of it because i wasn't typing sinhala. Must have a look again. Greenleaf 04:53, 19 September 2005 (UTC)

ශ්රී ලංකා ඉක්මන් මකාදැමුම සඳහා නම් කිරීම[සංස්කරණය]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on ශ්රී ලංකා requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is an article with no content whatsoever, or whose contents consist only of external links, a "See also" section, book references, category tags, template tags, interwiki links, a rephrasing of the title, or an attempt to contact the subject of the article. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. තඹරු විජේසේකර සාකච්ඡාව 09:27, 27 අගෝස්තු 2011 (යූටීසී)
