Two wiktionary project for Zaza language?[edit]

Hello there is two project with zza and diq code. According to Wikipedia zza is Zaza language, and diq is for Dimli. Is Dimli dialect of Zaza language or not? --Aabdullayev851 (talk) 20:02, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

@Aabdullayev851, MF-Warburg: I'm calling in some help here. Here is the issue:
  • zza is a macrolanguage code. The macrolanguage "Zaza" has two constituent languages:
    • diq (Dimli, or Southern Zaza). There is a Wikipedia under this code: diq:, called "Zazaki Wikipedia" at m:List of Wikipedias
    • kiu (Kirmanjki, or Northern Zaza). There is a Wikipedia test project here (Wp/kiu), called "Kirmanjki Wikipedia". The request for that at Meta is called "Kirmanjki (Northern Zazaki) Wikipedia"
With respect to Wiktionaries, there are actually three test projects: Wt/zza, Wt/diq and Wt/kiu.
  • Wt/zza is not very thoroughly developed and should probably be absorbed into one or both of the others.
Wt/zza has now been deleted, per I:RFD. StevenJ81 (talk) 20:24, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Wt/diq has a request in at Meta under the name "Zazaki Wiktionary"
  • Wt/kiu is described as "Kirmanjki Wiktionary", but has no request in Meta as far as I know.
So I think going forward there will be two languages going forward under codes diq and kiu. Whether diq is better described as "Zazaki" or "Dimli" is a question beyond my expertise to answer. But changing the name to Dimli across Wikimedia would undoubtedly take some work. StevenJ81 (talk) 22:44, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Keyboard required for Wp/hoc[edit]

A keyboard and a font is needed to write the Ho language in Warang Chiti script. How can I get help?

Singkiring57 (talk) 08:26, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

@Singkiring57: The Warang Chiti script is typeable in Unicode, but which font is used?
Can you show the link to the Warang Chiti Unicode font for downloading and installation? Most people's internet browsers need to install that font in order to be able to view the Warang Chiti script. --Philip J (talk) 08:32, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
@Philip J: Unfortunately, I could not find a Unicode compliant Warang Citi font. What I found were a few fonts having Warang Citi glyphs in place of Latin glyphs, they were probably used for printing books. -Singkiring57 (talk) 10:43, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
This is their official response:
"The Unicode Consortium is not a supplier or vendor of fonts. We do have a page that lists some known font resources. Please see: http://www.unicode.org/resources/fonts.html."
Another reply from a Unicode specialist:
"The Unicode Consortium does not release fonts for scripts encoded in the Unicode Standard, so there is no official Warang Citi Unicode font. Unfortunately, I do not know of any freely-available font covering Warang Citi, so the Warang Citi user community needs to produce a font themselves or hire someone to do so if they want to write documents in Unicode Warang Citi."
--Philip J (talk) 21:38, 4 October 2016 (UTC)
It is possible to "remap" the existing font using FontForge. So, rather than having this script's glyphs in place of Latin glyphs, you could assign the glyphs to their proper Unicode codes. --GeekEmad (talk) 18:16, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Display Language setting in N'ko[edit]

Hello, I would like to have the N'ko language among african languages in display language setting for my fellow N'ko language incubators ,so that they can use the platform easily . Best regards. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Youssoufkadialy (discussioncontribs).

To do this, first the interface needs to be translated into your language. You can do so on translatewiki:. --MF-W {a, b} 01:59, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

Opening RFC[edit]

Dear users. A request has opened to decide if apply a Global ban against Marrovi. Other users who have relevant information can participate. Here is the link; You can also review the guidelines here. For the same policies I have to notify in the projects that he participate. Regards. --Akapochtli (talk) 22:30, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

Wikidata support[edit]

Hi all, I want to canvass your support votes for m:2016_Community_Wishlist_Survey/Categories/Wikidata#Support_for_Incubator_.26_co., a proposal that WMF works on making Wikidata support the test-wikis of Incubator. --MF-W {a, b} 14:23, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Great idea, I support it. --Wolverène (talk) 15:19, 28 November 2016 (UTC)
I think its not a good idea for our projects in Incubator! we want to get our site and domain and not stay here forever.--Ibrahim Khashrowdi (TalK) 21:14, 28 November 2016 (UTC)
Yes of course. However, the change will make editing in Incubator easier and therefore also attract more contributors here, therefore allowing for a faster approval. --MF-W {a, b} 22:57, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Kabiye Wikipedia[edit]

Why doesn't the Kabiye (kbp) Wikipedia appear on this dropdown list? https://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:SearchWiki?searchproject=p&searchlanguage=kbp — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gnangbade (discussioncontribs) 08:32, 29 November 2016 (UTC).

The dropdown list shows only languages that are included in MediaWiki (same as on e.g. Special:Preferences), which Kabiye (kbp) is not. SPQRobin (talk) 21:14, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
Working on it ... StevenJ81 (talk) 20:33, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Import Requests[edit]

Good day, could an importer or an administrator import those pages, [1] and [2], with the prefix Wp/atj? They were meant to be created here and were created on Wikimedia Canada's wiki by mistake. Thank you, Amqui (talk) 16:54, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

Done. Note that the second one already existed here. --MF-W {a, b} 20:22, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
Ok thanks. Amqui (talk) 16:41, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Importing templates and modules[edit]

Hello, I couldn't find a proper way to import Wiktionary templates and modules to Wt/arq. This page mentioned the Import tool, but apparently, there isn't one in Incubator. I'd like to import most Arabic-related templates and modules such as this conjugation template. I'll modify them so they could work properly for Algerian Arabic (not the same conjugation structure). Thank you --GeekEmad (talk) 08:32, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Of course the import function exists on Incubator; just the section above was another import request. Anyway, importing complex templates from English projects is generally something I would recommend to avoid and instead to create a more simple version of the templates, as they always require a rat-tail of other stuff, as the mediawiki.org article you linked also says. But if there is no alternative, I can import this for you. --MF-W {a, b} 23:45, 3 December 2016 (UTC)
Yes, apparently the use of Import is limited to admins and importers. Well, although I want to import the whole English templates, I won't be using more than 50% of its functions, because Algerian grammar and orthography are way simpler than the Arabic ones, plus, vocalization is not important since all vowels are written (short ones are phonetically reduced). (e.g. I only need the singular and the plural in the perfect and the imperfect with the feminine being required only in the singular from this template). I'd be very happy if there is a simpler way to prefix, suffix and change final consonants (sometimes) without importing all these templates. I read the explanation about templates in MediaWiki, however, it was not sufficient. Thank you. --GeekEmad (talk) 07:10, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

Relevant wishlist item at m:[edit]

See m:2016_Community_Wishlist_Survey/Categories/Wikidata#Support_for_Incubator_projects This would allow d: to link to Incubator projects. —Justin (koavf)TCM 18:50, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

My, what a brilliant idea. --MF-W {a, b} 23:42, 3 December 2016 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg: Ha. True. —Justin (koavf)TCM 02:16, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

Vandals are back[edit]

Can anybody stop this donkey(Vandal)[3] he is disturbing the peaful atmosphere of Wikipedia--Raki 05:17, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
@Rachitrali: Thanks--he has been blocked on c: but you should probably contact an admin there next time. —Justin (koavf)TCM 06:55, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

The supplied credentials could not be authenticated.[edit]

why I can't log in or create account at transwiki.net. what problem is going now. please help me --Nijwmsa Boro 11:59, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

@Mr. Nijwmsa Boro: translatewiki: is not run by the Wikimedia Foundation, so your username and password from here will not work there. —Justin (koavf)TCM 16:00, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

How I can log in or create account ? --Nijwmsa Boro 16:55, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

@Mr. Nijwmsa Boro: translatewiki:FAQ#How_do_I_register?. We don't have anything translated into brx yet, so you could be a big help. —Justin (koavf)TCM 17:04, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

Related note to anyone here subject to Two-Factor Authentication[edit]

For that reason, anyone here who is subject to Two-Factor Authentication—meaning anyone who has advanced permissions on any Wikimedia project—should be using a different password at translatewiki.net than s/he does on the Wikimedia projects. StevenJ81 (talk) 17:23, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

Why? (Apart from the fact that using multiple passwords is always better.) --MF-W {a, b} 08:47, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
(a) Because using multiple passwords is always better. (b) I thought those of us subject to TFA were supposed to commit to using our CentralAuth-wiki password only on the CentralAuth wikis, which translatewiki.net isn't. But I couldn't find the source for that, so let me back off from what I said and merely suggest it. StevenJ81 (talk) 21:36, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Something Wrong[edit]

I can't register and log in, It shows. 'You do not have permission to do that, for the following reason:You are not allowed to execute the action you have requested.' when register. shows 'The supplied credentials could not be authenticated.' when log in..! --Nijwmsa Boro 10:18, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Try going to the support page at translatewiki. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:54, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

Start a new wiki[edit]

Hello,

Is it possible to start an entirely new wiki project? Not just a new language of an existing one. If it is possible, how can I do that?

Thank you!

--178.241.31.177 10:52, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

Hello, you can make a proposal or support one at Proposals for new projects. Ah3kal (talk) 10:56, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

Help[edit]

What prefix should I be using for my page? — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gallowayesq (discussioncontribs).

@Gallowayesq: What kind of project are you working on? —Justin (koavf)TCM 21:26, 27 December 2016 (UTC)
  1. User pages are not prefixed.
  2. Your user page is not appropriate here. We are not a web hosting service, and your web page is clearly promotional/ biographical. I'll let you fix your page yourself, but unless promotional details, and biographical details not germane to Incubator, are removed, I will take the liberty to remove them by tomorrow. StevenJ81 (talk) 21:35, 27 December 2016 (UTC)
User:Gallowayesq is blocked for one month (promotion and account abuse). StevenJ81 (talk) 00:11, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

RfC on incubating minor language Wikipedias in Taiwan.[edit]

Hello @Wolverène:,

Thank you for your contribution to put the Atayal Wikipedia(Wp/tay) into Incubator:Featured wikis. I just realized this after awhile of your edits, so this is not an instant feedback but I am still very grateful.

I and @Reke: are working in Wikimedia Taiwan. Our chapter is collaborating with National ChenChi University in Taiwan for the incubation project of Taiwanese indigenous people’s languages. There are about 16 official indigenous ethnicities in Taiwan. Among those, there are 5 indigenous language Wikipedias in the incubator that has volunteers, including Atayal Wikipedia. The editing history are below:

Our goal is to make all these 5 indigenous language Wikipedia to become self independent. I am wondering, according to your experience, can you show me what does the above 4 incubating Wikipedia needs to fit in the standard of Incubator:Featured_wikis? Do they need more edits, or more users that edits, or anything specific? It would help a lot for us to incubate those minor languages volunteers with those comments.

Thank you in advance.

--Shangkuanlc (talk) 08:03, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

(moved from Incubator_talk:Featured wikis. --MF-W {a, b} 23:28, 5 January 2017 (UTC))
Err, too hard to say something much better, but shouldn't we increase the number of entries under "These are active and might get their own site soon:" column to 10? Currently the 8 is also unfair to me. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 00:33, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
What would this achieve and why is 8 unfair? --MF-W {a, b} 15:53, 26 January 2017 (UTC)
By consensus on incubator, yeah. And regarding 8:
  • 8 means 2+6, then:
    1. According to w:1833: August 26 – The Canton of Basel is partitioned by the Swiss Tagsatzung, to create the two half-cantons of Basel-City and Basel-Country.
    2. According to w:2001: January 26 – The 7.7 Mw Gujarat earthquake shakes Western India with a maximum Mercalli intensity of X (Extreme), leaving 13,805–20,023 dead and about 166,800 injured. w:January 26 said ditto.
    3. According to w:2004: December 26 – The 9.1–9.3 Mw Indian Ocean earthquake shakes northern Sumatra with a maximum Mercalli intensity of IX (Violent). One of the largest observed tsunamis follows, affecting coastal areas of Thailand, India, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, Malaysia, Myanmar, Bangladesh, and Indonesia. The death toll across a number of these nations is over 200,000.
    4. According to w:June 26: 1941 – World War II: Soviet planes bomb Kassa, Hungary (now Košice, Slovakia), giving Hungary the impetus to declare war the next day.
    5. According to w:December 26: 2004 – Orange Revolution: The final run-off election in Ukraine is held under heavy international scrutiny.
  • Also according to w:2008:
    1. March 14 – Demonstrations by Tibetan separatists turn violent as rioters target government and Han Chinese-owned buildings. Where 3+1+4=8.
    2. May 12 – An earthquake measuring 7.9 Moment magnitude scale strikes Sichuan, China, killing an estimated 87,000 people. Where 5+1+2=8.
  • As I'm also a Chinese, I may read 8 as meaning: "疤 of 伤疤" (lit: scar); "霸 of 霸权" (hegemony); "罢 of 罢黜" (recall or dismiss?)...
  • Isn't Infinity symbol "∞", the collapsed 8, looks like handcuffs?
  • 8 can also have mean of double 4, where 4 is a word play of "死" (die), so isn't it meaning that I died twice?
  • In April 10, 2010 (where 2+0+1+0+4+1+0=8 too!): 2010 – Polish Air Force Tu-154M crashes near Smolensk, Russia, killing 96 people, including Polish President Lech Kaczyński, his wife, and dozens of other senior officials and dignitaries.
So isn't 8 another unlucky number like 13 or 4? Shouldn't we consider raising this column up now?
--Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 08:59, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
Please stay serious. --MF-W {a, b} 11:42, 29 January 2017 (UTC)
Hello User:Shangkuanlc. Being listed on Incubator:Featured_wikis is not a very important thing; the rules for it are fluid. Basically any test-wiki that has recent activity will be listed there from time to time. The approval of them getting an own, "independent" wiki is a different thing. For it, it is required that there are several editors (minimum 3) over the course of at least several months. And also the translation of the most-used interface messages ([tools.wmflabs.org/robin/?tool=codelookup]). --MF-W {a, b} 15:53, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

Administrator rights[edit]

Hi! I would like to ask for administrator rights on the Lingua Franca Nova Wikipedia. --Katxis (talk) 12:01, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

You can request it on I:A. --MF-W {a, b} 14:31, 25 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for your help. --Katxis (talk) 15:12, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

Text Editor for Khowar Wikipedia[edit]

A Text Editor(Keyboard) is required for writing Khowar articles in Khowar Wikipedia incubator project. I have created a keyboard for this language and want to share the Source Files with Wikimedia free of cost. Can anybody upload this keyboard for the use of Khowar writers in wikipeida? please share your email so that i'll email you the source files. my email is rachitrali@yahoo.com --Raki 09:53, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

What exactly do you mean by a keyboard? - Apart from that, Wikimedia uses free software only for its websites and you can find everything on gerrit:. There you can also contribute your own patches etc. --MF-W {a, b} 14:13, 31 January 2017 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg: sir, the keyboard is required for directly typing in Khowar Wikipedia incubator project. I'll share the sources file to anyone who can help us this regard. Thank you very much for your time--Raki 07:22, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
Please start a request on phabricator:. I really don't know what exactly you mean nor where that code should go. --MF-W {a, b} 14:47, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

Translatewiki.net problem in Bodo language (Bodo Wikipedia incubator)[edit]

Sir, the problem in translatewiki. net is that I want translate massages for Bodo Wikipedia project but Bodo language is disabled so, I can not translate any massages. can anyone help me .. --Nijwmsa Boro 10:32, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

@Mr. Nijwmsa Boro: We work with translatewiki but it's not actually a part of the Wikimedia Foundation's work. You'd have to talk to them. —Justin (koavf)TCM 10:37, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

can you give me any contact numbers, addresses ? --Nijwmsa Boro 10:39, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

@Mr. Nijwmsa Boro: Please look at the following page on translatewiki.net: translatewiki:Translatewiki.net languages#Enabling a new language for localisation at translatewiki.net. You will have to go to translatewiki:Support to make a request. Some of the information is already present at translatewiki.net, because the page translatewiki:Portal:Brx already exists. Good luck. (By the way, I suggest you use a color other than yellow as a signature; it's very hard to read.) StevenJ81 (talk) 14:35, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

OK, I'll change the colour. I have requested for enabling language for translation at support page. --Nijwmsa Boro 16:25, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

@Koavf: Justin, I know experts in the Ingush language. And I can share their contacts with the language committee. How can I do it? Adam-Yourist (talk) 11:14, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
@Adam-Yourist: Contact User:Amire80 at his Meta talk page. I think he is the one trying to finalize this on behalf of the Language Committee. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:43, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

Stuck in the incubator[edit]

Please can someone explain why the Kabiye (kbp) Wikipedia is still in the incubator? This Wikipedia was initiated in June 2014, and since then has been steadily growing with daily contributions from a small group of dedicated volunteers. It now has over 850 articles, many of which have graphics, infoboxes categories and links. The 500 most used interface messages have been translated. The Kabiye Wikipedia has many more articles, and more depth than other minority African languages that have made it onto the real platform. Ghiutun made a Request for a new language in May 2016 which I seconded, but there's been no reply. Kabiye does not even appear on the scroll-down list on this page. What more do we need to do? We're feeling invisible and fed up. Gnangbade (talk) 20:25, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

As I said over on Meta ... working on it. StevenJ81 (talk) 21:10, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
@Gnangblade: See my updated comment on Meta: not only does the most used message group have to be completed, but the larger group that is a part of—"MediaWiki core messages"—must be completed up to 13%. (You're currently at 10%.) At that point, kbp will appear in the search and the interface will be available in kbp. BTW, we've marked the fallback language—the language that messages appear in when a Kabiye translation doesn't exist—to French. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:47, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

De-Recognition of Wikimedia Hong Kong[edit]

This is an update from the Wikimedia Affiliations Committee. Translations are available.

Recognition as a Wikimedia movement affiliate — a chapter, thematic organization, or user group — is a privilege that allows an independent group to officially use the Wikimedia trademarks to further the Wikimedia mission.

The principal Wikimedia movement affiliate in the Hong Kong region is Wikimedia Hong Kong, a Wikimedia chapter recognized in 2008. As a result of Wikimedia Hong Kong’s long-standing non-compliance with reporting requirements, the Wikimedia Foundation and the Affiliations Committee have determined that Wikimedia Hong Kong’s status as a Wikimedia chapter will not be renewed after February 1, 2017.

Infobox Anatomy Error[edit]

Please fix the Infobox Anatomy Error [5]--Zaheeruddin25 (talk) 05:43, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
Right now, Incubator does not have access to Wikidata. So any Wikidata-related calls, such as {{#property:...}} are not going to work. We're working on that, but cannot promise a timeline. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:59, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

English Wiktionary coverage of ASL [American Sign Language] terms[edit]

Following copied from my talk page at 14:28, 23 February 2017 (UTC).

You mentioned me on Steve Levinski's talk page Wiktionary work on ASL. I do not know if you are in a position to help me on this topic, but I would appreciate any information or contacts you can share.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Index:American_Sign_Language/A

I had tried to contribute to the development of the Index of ASL terms a few years ago, but I do not know how to automate the compiling of the index. Is it possible to put a tag in a wiki page and have a script run through all such wiki pages to build an index? Otherwise new entries would have to be manually added to any indicies. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Positivesigner (discussioncontribs) 10:02, 23 February 2017 (UTC).

Boy, am I the wrong guy to ask! And I'm not entirely sure where to ask someone for help on that.
  • I'm going to copy this over to I:CP and see if anyone lurking there can help.
  • Otherwise, there are help pages on both Meta-Wiki and MediaWiki.org, and those would be better places to look. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:28, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

"Testproject" namespace (?)[edit]

The "project" namespace on Incubator, also known as "Incubator" namespace, is reserved for pages that support Incubator as a whole. For right now, any test wanting to create a "Project:" page ("Wikipedia:", "Wiktionary:", etc.) simply creates it in mainspace, and somehow the importers figure out what to do when the project is exported to a subdomain. Still, I wonder if it wouldn't make everyone's life easier if we had something like a "Testproject:" namespace, where (like in main, Template and Category) prefixes are required, where tests could park pages destined for their "Project:" namespaces. Any thoughts? StevenJ81 (talk) 14:11, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

I don't think this would be useful. First of all, the current system works fine with regard to the export. The pages are always using the project NS name of the new subdomain very consistently. Second, in the current way the NS name can be translated, which seems much more userfriendly than a generic name. Third, it would be very annoying to implement this switch, as every test-wiki should change the names of its pages at one time to avoid that duplicates (Wx/xx/Wikibla: and Testproject:Wx/xx/...) are created. That danger would also persist after the change, and I don't think it's a good idea to open such an "opportunity for errors". --MF-W {a, b} 18:05, 25 February 2017 (UTC)
