Page origin

This section inspired by my series of article called "Etude de pi├Ęces" I've published on FreeLUG among them that one I wish to find time to translate for brickwiki :

Deletion or Clarification

The title and text of this page is gibberish to me. Can anyone clarify either? Tedward 16:02, 13 June 2012 (CDT)

Support deletion absent some good clarification. Claude Bombarde 00:40, 14 June 2012 (CDT)
Did this get moved from somewhere (by copying)?? The history is missing, so I can't comment on who wrote it originally. I think I have some idea of what is being alluded to... google constructopedia perhaps? But I agree it needs a lot of work. That's not a reason to delete it though. ++Lar: t/c 07:37, 14 June 2012 (CDT)
Can you at move it to an intelligible title and/or provide a single sentence of text that means something? Otherwise I see no reason not to delete it. Tedward 10:28, 14 June 2012 (CDT)
How did it get here and why is your edit the only one? If I can see the history I expect I can do something. But right now it is not clear to me how it got to here... do you know what you did? ++Lar: t/c 17:39, 14 June 2012 (CDT)
I just redirected for spelling convention. See the original (with history) @ Parts Functionality Studies. Tedward 00:09, 15 June 2012 (CDT)
To preserve history, you should move the original to the desired name, and don't uncheck "create a redirect", and don't uncheck "move associated talk page" ... this is fixable, let me try to fix it. Not today though, I'm at BrickWorld. ++Lar: t/c 07:39, 16 June 2012 (CDT)
Great! Enjoy Brickworld (and maybe take a pic or two we could use to illustrate its article.) As for this page, I would prefer a redirect to a title that makes sense rather than total deletion so I'll leave it for you when you get a chance. Thanks. Tedward 11:20, 16 June 2012 (CDT)
Ok. Maybe this should just redirect to Constructopedia which is far more intelligible. Let me try to fix the history up, find the link to the Big Wiki article on the different ways to accomplish moves and history restores and merges and unmerges and the like, and then mull that idea. BW was a blast. ++Lar: t/c 10:22, 18 June 2012 (CDT)

I get it now

This title actually makes sense.

Read this translated article by Didier: ... this article is talking about studies of how different parts can achieve the same functionality, and how special purpose parts sometimes make things way better. Read the gearbox article to see how much adding two or three special purpose parts vastly improved the space used, and performance of, gearboxes. Also how different parts are used to achieve the same goals. I am going to ask Didier to come back and edit this article more, as I think there's potential. ++Lar: t/c 09:55, 22 June 2012 (CDT)

My apologies to Didier for the harshness of my comment earlier. Clearly an issue of a non-native speaker of English and I should not criticize since I am almost totally monolingual. Tedward 11:42, 22 June 2012 (CDT)
Didier declined to work further on this at this time, but was glad to hear BrickWiki is (soft) back, saying he probably would focus more on train related articles.... so we are back, I guess. I undestand what the intent is now, and there is a LOT of source material (in french) in the set of articles on freelug, but it would take a lot of work to turn those french articles into useful content here. So maybe deletion or redirection nevertheless is the way to go if we can't find a volunteer to do some de-google-translate-ization on the machine text and turn the content into something useful. ++Lar: t/c 15:12, 22 June 2012 (CDT)
Gave it a quick go. Am I on the right track? Tedward 15:53, 22 June 2012 (CDT)
I think so, yes! Thanks! ++Lar: t/c 14:09, 23 June 2012 (CDT)
Sounds like a good project for a high school French class. --ALITTLESlow: t/c 11:13, 18 July 2012 (CDT)
