Template Translation for Incubator[edit]

I am unable to translate this template: fr:Modèle:Infobox Graphème into english and khowar. Can anybody translate this from french language to english. This template is necessary for creating pages of six uniquely pronounced special characters of Khowar Language, Please translate this into english so that i'll translate this into Khowar language. This template is only available in French Wikipedia. Regards -- RAChitrali 01:41, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
I'll try to tackle in the next day or two. What I think I'd like to do is this:
  • You create a template page in the Khowar test where you would like this to go. (You can create it with simple text like "placeholder".)
  • I will import the template from French Wikipedia, then translate it in place into English.
  • Then you translate it in place to Khowar.
OK? StevenJ81 (talk) 14:02, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
@Rachitrali: Stock post message.svg Doing...  Didn't hear from you. Imported to User:StevenJ81/Modèle:Infobox Graphème along with a documentation subpage. This will take a while; please be patient. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:49, 28 April 2017 (UTC)

How to add the translations of a language name ?[edit]

Hello everyone, I'm currently working on the Wallisian (wls) wikipedia incubator (Wp/wls), but when I set my interface language to French, I get "Wikipédia en Wallisian". I'd like to change it to "Wikipédia en wallisien". I've looked in many places (Incubator, Mediawiki...), but could not find the page where I could add the translations for that language. Any help appreciated ! Thanks Skimel (talk) 22:09, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

@Skimel: Translations for the MediaWiki interface are actually done at translatewiki:. —Justin (koavf)TCM 06:04, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
@Koavf: Thanks for your answer, but I couldn't find the translation pages on Translatewiki either. In fact, I'm wondering where the various translations for each language are stored (eg the page where "English", "Anglais", "Inglès"... etc are). Any idea ? I've also noticed that this page Template:Test wiki/639-3 does not have all the ISO 639-3 codes. Thanks! Skimel (talk) 19:53, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
@Skimel: There may not be anyone translating into Wallisian at the moment. You would need to propose it there. —Justin (koavf)TCM 20:10, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
Maybe I was not clear enough. I do not want to translate pages into Wallisian (I don't speak this language well), but I'd like to translate the interface into French. Right now Wp/wls is in a mixture of French and English (I've set my preferences to French). The code on this page is {{test wiki | mainpage = Wp/wls/Main Page | status = open | meta = yes | language = Wallisian }} I cannot find the page where the parameter "language" is defined (is there a list of all languages, is it ISO 639-3 ?), and more importantly, the page where "Wallisian" gets translated into different languages (as "Algerian Arabic" (Wp/arq) gets translated to "arabe algérien" in French). Thanks a lot for your help :) Skimel (talk) 21:21, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
@Skimel: At pages such as https://incubator.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wp/wls/Main_Page&action=info one can set a language. Whether you have those rights or it is enabled here, I do not know. In general, that is how it is done in MediaWiki. —Justin (koavf)TCM 23:40, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
@Skimel: It turns out that this takes place in another place altogether, at CLDR. Read at translatewiki:FAQ#Language_names, and follow the directions there. StevenJ81 (talk) 04:06, 20 September 2017 (UTC)

Page Delete[edit]

I have moved a page from Wp/sat/Main page (Ol Chiki) to Wp/sat/ᱢᱩᱬᱩᱛ ᱥᱟᱦᱴᱟ

But, am now want to revert that to original one (i.e. Wp/sat/Main page (Ol Chiki)) and delete the new page (i.e. wp/sat/ᱢᱩᱬᱩᱛ ᱥᱟᱦᱴᱟ)

How can I do it? Please Help me.

Thanks, Ramjit Tudu (talk) 07:03, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

  1. Move the page back to its original location. When ask, choose the "overwrite current page" option.
  2. Place the template {{delete}} on the page you want deleted. (Don't replace the current contents with it, just add it to the top.)

Eventually, I'll see that page come up for deletion and will act on it. StevenJ81 (talk) 12:49, 18 September 2017 (UTC)


    Just done it, please check .

Thanks, Ramjit Tudu (talk) 17:33, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

OK. That worked. Now here's the other thing you have to do: Go to the page you want deleted and then click on ⧼What links here⧽. Click that, and see what pages link to the page you want to delete. You have to go to each of those pages and fix the links so they go to the new target page. [Don't worry about this page (I:CP), just the others.] I can't delete until that happens.

Pashto Wikivoyage[edit]

Hei we are activ now one month ago,we do our best Wy/ps (pashto wikivoyage) but i think the language should be approved now please help us we are waiting :)) --Khan (talk) 08:29, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

We all really appreciate your hard work and positive attitude, Khan. But this project is not close to being ready for approval. Let me explain (again) why:
  1. You really don't have much content here. Yes, there are 140 pages. But I did a random check of ten pages in your test this morning. Six were nothing more than empty shells: section headers you'd like to see filled in, with no content. Three were, at best, stubs: those shells, with perhaps a line or two of content inside. Only one of the ten really had content in it, and at that it was a pretty short page. So you just need more content.
  2. You don't have a community. You need three named users contributing at least ten times every month. In August, there was just you, in September you and one other. The Language Committee will not approve projects built by one person.
I hope that has been clear. Good luck. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:35, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

Wikimedia is getting rid of Tidy[edit]

I'd like to bring the community's attention to this announcement that came in last week's Tech News (I:Wikimedia news#Tech News: 2017-38):

Future changes

Please take this seriously, and check if your tests have pages listed at Special:LintErrors (or if any of your userpages are listed!). In particular, any page in the "High Priority" category will probably be broken if you do not fix the coding. Thank you. StevenJ81 (talk) 16:27, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

@StevenJ81: sir some Special:LintErrors found in Khowar Wikipedia, please check and guide us. Thanks --RAChitrali 09:29, 2 October 2017 (UTC)
@Rachitrali: Most of your issues have to do with complex coding problems that I am not expert in. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:15, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

Pashto Wikivoyage verification[edit]

Hello please check our language Pashto Wikivoyage, we doing our best and spending a lot of time to make Pashto Wikivoyage best. So please if you people verify our Wikivoyage this will give us big reason to work on this project. And thank you very much :))) .... --Khan (talk) 11:38, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

I think you're coming along very nicely. I appreciated the article you pointed me to yesterday, too! (smile) To be sure,
  • I can't judge the content—I don't read Pashto. Consider asking a couple of regulars at Pashto Wikipedia who haven't been so involved to have a look and see what they think.
  • I'm also not a big expert on Wikivoyage projects.
In any event, you need to continue to meet the activity requirement through November before I can recommend the project to the Language Committee. Also: LangCom would like to see continued activity translating the interface. All of the "most used" messages are translated, but consider tackling a portion of the untranslated MediaWiki core messages (here). StevenJ81 (talk) 13:03, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

Dear Friend: This was very difficult for me to understand what you mean (:*I can't judge the content—I don't read Pashto. Consider asking a couple of regulars at Pashto Wikipedia who haven't been so involved to have a look and see what they think.) can you please write little bit easier:))) Khan (talk) 03:44, 12 October 2017 (UTC)

He means because he doesn't know Pashto, he can't tell if the writing is good, but ask a few people that go on the site sometimes but don't write a lot to see if the writing is good, and say if you need to do anything to make the writing better. JustinCB (talk) 18:31, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

Test wiki for incubator extension[edit]

There should be a test wiki for the Incubator extension. There are already test wikis for the Wikidata extension and MediaWiki in general. Maybe something like test.incubator.wikimedia.org or incubator.test.wikipedia.org? KATMAKROFAN (talk) 03:10, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

Create a Beta Cluster Incubator (https://incubator.wikimedia.beta.wmflabs.org/) instead? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 11:17, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
What do you want to test? StevenJ81 (talk) 14:49, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

Simple wikis[edit]

I think a good idea would be to create simple wiki pages like the English one but in different languages to aid learners (such as myself) and to help those with learning disabilities who speak other languages. If anyone is willing to help me with this I am willing to help however I am only fluent English

--Vexthesmol (talk) 18:59, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

@Vexthesmol: I think that separate wikis in simple versions of languages would not be successful--however good the idea is. Instead, it would probably be best to encourage an individual project to adopt simple versions of their content. —Justin (koavf)TCM 04:40, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
  • Policy on "simple" projects is as follows:
    • There is a very narrow definition as to what simple projects might be considered in the future. See this discussion page.
    • Related: all the Simple English projects have been closed except for Wikipedia and Wiktionary—and Wiktionary really only because it provides definitions supporting Wikipedia.
    • New "simple" projects do not incubate here. They incubate within the existing projects of their language community. This way, the language community decides if it wishes to support the simple project. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:14, 24 October 2017 (UTC)

Sindhi Devnagiri[edit]

Please tell me how do I start Sindhi Devnagiri language in Wikipedia. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by 196.1.113.246 (discussioncontribs).

@196.1.113.246: See m:Language_committee/Handbook_(requesters)#Making_a_new_request. —Justin (koavf)TCM 03:27, 26 October 2017 (UTC)
Actually ...
  • See Wp/snd, where there is already a test project running in Sindhi using Devanagari script.
  • See m:Requests for new languages/Wikipedia Sindhi, which is the formal request for this project.
    Note that it's not at all obvious that this project will be approved. Language Committee would far prefer there to be one and only one Sindhi Wikipedia, which would be equipped with a script converter so that both Arabic and Devanagari could be used. Nevertheless, you can still make the request, and still contribute to the test project in the meantime. StevenJ81 (talk) 12:42, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

Working with an incubator wiki is very time consuming and hard[edit]

Initial post moved from Incubator talk:Main Page. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:12, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

hi.Working with an incubator wiki is very time consuming and hard. Because we have to write the language prefixes in each step For example, in Wikipedia, such as English and ..., it's easy to create an article, but it's very limited in wiki Incubator and And the quality of the articles comes down.

  • solution:

Like the Wikipedia created such as :en - fa- fr and ... in the Incubator wiki we are working .Automatically has a wiki prefix for that language . Why does Wiki Incubator have all these restrictions? --Hosseinblue (talk) 23:19, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

@Hosseinblue: A very good question. To give a brief answer, there are a couple of reasons.
  • First, it's because one could expect many different wikis potentially to have articles with the same name. For example, both Wikipedia and Wiktionary tests in Laki have main pages named سەر پەڕە. So if we didn't have prefixes, only one could be called that; the other would have to be called something else.
  • Second, it's because it makes it much easier to find and move the pages that need to be moved when a test is approved and exported.
  • Third, it makes it harder for vandals to hide junk here pretending to be real content. Not impossible, of course, just harder.
If you go to the "gadgets" page and turn on the very last gadget on the page, AddPrefix, I think you'll find that most of the time you need a prefix you'll automatically get one. And please don't hesitate to ask if you need further help. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:19, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

Wp/lld village pump[edit]

Hi, I have been asked to help new Wp/lld users with editing basics and minor technical issues (I don't speak the language myself, but all of them speak Italian and many of them German). For this purpose, we need simple communicating tools, i.e. a local village pump and possibly a local help desk. Are there any points to be considered or discussed before creating the pages? --Pegasovagante (talk) 20:05, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

Just about everything is up to the community. I'd just make the following points:
  • The form of the page location will be Wp/lld/Wikipedia:xxx
    As I'm sure you know, the itwiki version is "Wikipedia:Bar". So if you think that Italian will be the main language of communication there, consider naming the page Wp/lld/Wikipedia:Bar. If there is a better Ladin name than that, I think I'd still put a redirect at that location, because your contributors might look for it there.
  • Similarly, the form for the help desk would be either Wp/lld/Wikipedia:xxx or Wp/lld/Help:xxx (or Wp/lld/Aiuto:xxx). Same parallel comments would apply to the name.
  • State at the top of each page that Italian and German, as well as Ladin, are allowed for discussion on the page.
  • If you get overburdened there, consider encouraging people to use the itwiki or dewiki pages where the questions are broadly about Wikipedia, and focus any discussion on the test's pages on issues specifically relating to the Ladin test.
Any other questions, please be in touch. Good luck. StevenJ81 (talk) 22:29, 22 November 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much, I'll definitely follow your advice. --Pegasovagante (talk) 17:35, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

Anonomous IP reverts of Middle English wikipedia article on England[edit]

The IP user in question is 80.178.204.11 . I had rewritten the page because it wasn't in Middle English, but the aforementioned IP user reverted it. Now Wp/enm/Engelond is written in a language that looks like a mispelled Norse language mixed with French, Old English, and a little Middle English. It uses a ß's and vowels with diacritics that were never used in Middle English, as well as ð's that were rarely used in Middle English, and never used for d's. JustinCB (talk) 16:12, 3 December 2017 (UTC)

@JustinCB: I'm not quite sure exactly what to do about it. One of the little issues here is that sysops don't necessarily speak all the languages in use in Incubator. So I have no way of judging a priori who's correct. Do you have any sources to share that can prove that you're right? StevenJ81 (talk) 14:41, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

Have you even looked at the page? This is the first paragraph(with the first sentence already in Middle English[in 2008]):

Engelond beeþ a kyngdome in Europe. Þá som 50 gráþusun a iállinne. Angillríci héff eána ðinrid qe qýrriaþ. Annes ilff som Elisabeþ II.

Let's see it word by word in the Middle English Dictionary:
[2]
[3]
[4]
slightly differently)
[5]
not in the Middle English Dictionary)


"Þa" is a variant form of several words
"som" is also a variant
50 is a numeral, language neutral
starting with "grath"/"graþ", note that there is no "gráþusun" anywhere
"a", of course, is a common word and has several forms
starting with "ila". None resemble "iállinne". words begin with "ial"
the only word remotely resembling "Angillríci"
might be a variant of have
words starting with "ean". "eána" only vaguely resembles any of them.
words somewhat resembling "ðinrid"
doesn't exist in Middle English
words beginning with "qy" are erroneous forms of words. "qýrriaþ" is not among them.
"Annes" might be a variant of "oneness" in Middle English
word starts with "ilf", making "ilff" not a Middle English word
"som" is a variant of some words.
"Elisabeþ" spells "Elisabeth" with the archaic letter thorn
II. is roman numerals.

How can I generate tests for meta:Wikimuseum?--Felipe da Fonseca (talk) 13:41, 8 December 2017 (UTC)

Santali Wikipedia: Someone deleted main page[edit]

It's disappointing, someone deleted our main page from incubator (https://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wp/sat/Main_Page). We created our pages and contents in roman/latin script.But now all the contents are disappeared.How the admins made it? Not only from incubator but also from the translate wiki same things are done! It's notable that Santali language have five written scripts (according to Wikipedia) and roman/latin script is one of them. We need an urgent solution. Please help — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Samar88 (discussioncontribs) 15:27, 13 December 2017 (UTC).

@Samar88: Effectively, you've been away for five years. That's a long time to assume that nothing is going to change around here. Let me make a couple of suggestions:
  • If you can find the old Main Page somewhere, let me know, and I'll try to restore it to somewhere. But the entire page history of this page seems to be in Ol Chiki, and is less than a year old. So I have no idea where any old versions might be.
  • You'll have to look around to see if there's a discussion on this topic. But if not, you'll have to start a discussion with the current community somewhere within the test, perhaps at Talk:Wp/sat or Talk:Wp/sat/Main Page. Something like this is a topic for the test community to decide. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:41, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

But, am now want to revert that to original one (i.e. Wp/sat/Main page (Ol Chiki)) and delete the new page (i.e. wp/sat/ᱢᱩᱬᱩᱛ ᱥᱟᱦᱴᱟ)

How can I do it? Please Help me.

  1. Move the page back to its original location. When ask, choose the "overwrite current page" option.
  2. Place the template {{delete}} on the page you want deleted. (Don't replace the current contents with it, just add it to the top.)

Eventually, I'll see that page come up for deletion and will act on it. StevenJ81 (talk) 12:49, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

OK. That worked. Now here's the other thing you have to do: Go to the page you want deleted and then click on ⧼What links here⧽. Click that, and see what pages link to the page you want to delete. You have to go to each of those pages and fix the links so they go to the new target page. [Don't worry about this page (I:CP), just the others.] I can't delete until that happens.

Info pages of approved projects[edit]

I'd find it rather useful if the links to useful pages such as "all pages", recent changes, request on Meta would not disappear from the info pages of projects which are approved, but not yet created (example: after approval, before). Yes/no? --MF-W {a, b} 19:20, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

I agree with that, actually. I frequently change it to "open", then "Show preview" (then don't save) to see them. I'll work on it. StevenJ81 (talk) 19:41, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done @MF-Warburg: In order to do it fairly simply, I added a status "approved1" for cases like this, and will add that to the documentation. I probably should streamline the coding of the template a little, but I'm not doing it now. StevenJ81 (talk) 20:51, 13 December 2017 (UTC)
Great. You can probably do something with the fact that the "approved" status already changes depending on whether you give a bug or a creation date as another parameter, but yeah, the template is awful to edit. --MF-W {a, b} 10:55, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
