from master bug: WORK tab: We changed LinkedIn for http://www.viadeo.com/ LEARN tab: We changed the Wikipedia link for http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accueil to link to the French startpage We changed Topiw for http://www.futura-sciences.com/ We changed HowStuffWorks for http://www.commentcamarche.net/ PLAY tab: We changed YouTube for http://www.dailymotion.com/fr/ We changed Hype Machine for http://www.blogotheque.net/ CONNECT tab: We changed craigslist for http://www.kijiji.fr/ We changed Yelp for http://www.convillial.com/ville/index.php (we are still looking for a better choice than this one at the moment) We changed FaceBook for http://copainsdavant.linternaute.com/ Note that these changes might not be frozen, but very little changes are expected. I also put "FIXME" in the path links towards the site images that need to be changed.
ok on viadeo for linked-in - have you been in contact with them to let them know? we don't need permission but i'd like to at least let people know we'll be recommending them ok for topix replacement - can you tell me more about futura-sciences (it seems to promote science of the future with informaiton, blogs, forums, etc?) ok for commentcemarche.net - shall i be in touch with them or will you? ok on dailymotion.com/fr blogotheque - does this site follow blogs that recommend music to users? ok on kijiji.fr any news for Yelp?

I will send an email > ok for topix replacement - can you tell me more about futura-sciences (it seems > to promote science of the future with information, blogs, forums, etc?) Exactly. It is supported by famous scientists, reporters, ... Will send an email too > ok for commentcemarche.net - shall i be in touch with them or will you? I will send an email > ok on dailymotion.com/fr I will send an email > blogotheque - does this site follow blogs that recommend music to users? This site is a blog talking about the news on music. There are articles about bands and artists. One can listen some tracks and play some videos about the artists. There are also concerts dates and musical events. > ok on kijiji.fr Ok, I will send a mail > any news for Yelp? (convillial) No. We asked our community to find some similar sites, but we didn't find anything like Yelp which would be worldwide and French speaking. Any help there would be appreciated. I'm waiting before sending an email to them > ok on copainsdavant - I assume they are popular? more so than facebook, > myspace, orkut? This is a very popular site, with 7 millions of users and it is also available for Canada, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Morocco, ... The concept is to upload a class photography, or from a sports club or whatever to retrieve some old friends you don't know what they have become and get in touch with them again. I will send an email
ok, let's go ahead with these changes. as we don't need permission from these providers, can we close this bug?
can we close this bug?
Mic, not yet. Philippe just found a compromise to replace Yeld with Cityvox (http://www.fra.cityvox.fr/bienvenue_france/Accueil) An European guide. It doesn't cover Canada, but it's better than Yeld or convillial. People can rate the restaurants or films or whatever proposed things. We also need to replace Answers.com, as this addon is linked to an English interface.
great on cityvox :) neat site
Mic, we ended up with gTranslate in replacement for Answers.com (https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/918). If it's ok for you, I will submit the page with all the changes
brilliant suggestion. good idea for other locales too who also aren't familiar with Answers, thanks
