On today's episode of "How I Accidentally Became #1 Contributor on a Wikipedia Version in a Language I Don't Even Speak Well"...

We've broken the record for monthly activity on CJ Wikipedia, for the THIRD time!

Uncyclopedian OPOSSUM tulee kaupungissa! Tiedätte, että vielä opin tätä... Asun Kaliforniassa (yhdysvalloissa), ja haluan mennä Alaskassa kesässä, ja... siivota... rataita. Marraskuun alkauksesta olen tahtonut oppia chinook-jargon:en, koska löytin paljon tsinuk sanaissa pi paikan-nimeissa, kuin "chum salmon (vai koira-lohi)", "cheechako", "Skookumchuck", ja ereä asiaa. Minä olen ei koskaan tuntenut että yrrittäisin oppia chinook-jargon:ta... mutta olen olenut paljon hauska oppimassa tuota kieltä.

From Uncyclopedia OPOSSUM is coming to town! You know that I'm still learning this [chinook jargon]... I live in California, and I want to go to Alaska during the summer, to clear the trails (as a part-time park ranger.) Since early November I have wanted to learn Chinook Jargon, because I found a whole lot of words, place names and more in it, including "chum salmon", "cheechako", "Skookumchuck", among others. I never thought that I would try to learn Chinook, but I have had a lot of fun learning that language.

PS I started learning finnish last year only because of the excessive amount of weird finnish memes in the places you'd least expect them

A long time ago, many people on the west coast of North America knew the trade language which is known in English as "Chinook Jargon". If you help us contribute to WikKopetIkta (what I refer to Chinook Jargon Wikipedia as), many thanks. We need new people to help us expand the wiki!!! HELP!!! And soon , if we work together, WikKopetIkta ("incomplete thing" in Chinook Jargon) will become the "complete thing" and get a place on real Wikipedia! Chinook Jargon is a very easy language to learn, and most of our articles are very short.

Chinook Jargon Transliteration Tool (I know it's broken, but chillax guys!) edit

Websites that may come in handy for Chinook Jargon learners (like myself!) edit

Gibbs' Dictionary Online (English-Chinook Section): This is the online dictionary I used when I began learning it...

CJ Server Wordlist by Q'alis Three thousand terms defined? How?

Henry Zenk's Chinook Jargon etymologies Contains a bunch of words and their origins, arguably less useful than the other two. (Figured I should explain why due to the discord server's reaction: Gibbs's dictionary makes a great introduction, Q'alis's dictionary contains all sorts of obscure words that you never knew about, but Zenk's is awkwardly in the middle of the two, no offense to him, of course.)

Tenas Wawa Perhaps the biggest Chinook Jargon website of the 90's. Contains the story of "Moola John", learning resources, a few letters, crosswords, and a few other things.

Chinook Jargon Facebook Group: It sure does take a long time to get your account approved though!

BC Chinook Jargon Contains a bunch of materials that I often struggle to access due to my garbage internet.

ChinookJargon.com David Robertson's blog about obscure Chinook Jargon features, old Chinook newspapers and letters, and a few other things... pretty cool website I guess

Kaltash Wawa It [apparently] started off as an attempt at a Kamloops Wawa successor, then got turned into a silly little thing of its own, for CJ learners, etc. There's a few Duployan memes and a pretty interesting story about the creator's trip to Pemberton (a town in BC).
