Transwiki request[edit source]

Please, transwiki Wp/yrk/Поговорим на ненецком языке to voy:ru:Ненецкий разговорник. 217.117.125.83 17:42, 30 May 2021 (UTC)

We cannot do this. You need to request it at the target wikis. --MF-W {a, b} 09:38, 1 July 2021 (UTC)

Link Bots[edit source]

Hello! Does anyone know if there's a bot that adds interlanguage links (e.g. [[en:France]]) that's still active? --PastelKos (talk) 18:06, 30 May 2021 (UTC)

I think this was MerlIwBot, whose operator, User:Merlissimo, is unfortunately inactive since a few years already. --MF-W {a, b} 09:38, 1 July 2021 (UTC)

Criteria for admission[edit source]

Hi,

According to the Manual: "Content work is the most important thing. Write and maintain articles. It can sometimes take a long time before your wiki is approved." I'm considering working on a language for a new Wikipedia but I'd like to know how much time it takes, for instance having orders of magnitude of:

  • How many active users are required? Or what was the average/median number of active users of the most recently approved new Wikipedias?
  • Same questions for the total number of articles (in the main space) and/or bytes/characters (to exclude super short articles)?
  • For accepted projects, what was the minimum/average/median/maximum months/years between the creation of the Incubator version and its approval?

I understand that it's not only a matter of quantity and that the quality of the articles is extremely important but I think these metrics would be helpful to set up goals for the community and motivate contributors.

I thought I could manually check Incubator:Site creation log and look at approved projects and see how many articles they had but it seems that the version on Incubator is deleted a few months after it is approved. That's why I'm asking this question :) A455bcd9 (talk) 22:00, 29 June 2021 (UTC)

I guess you can see meta:Request for new languages. Hope your Wikipedia gets approved! <atomi20>¿some problem? 10:03 AM, 30 June 2021 (UTC -5)
@A455bcd9: See m:langcom. —Justin (koavf)TCM 15:18, 30 June 2021 (UTC)
@Atomi20:, thank. Unfortunately the page you linked says "This page doesn't currently exist; you can search this title in other pages or edit this page.", what was the intended link?
@Koavf:, thanks, I checked this page, but I can't see the answers to my questions, what did you have in mind? A455bcd9 (talk) 15:29, 30 June 2021 (UTC)
@A455bcd9: Sorry, it was meta:Requests for new languages. There you can see some examples of requests and see the card at the right of "Language committee" for help with the Langcom. <atomi20>¿some problem? 10:32 AM, 30 June 2021 (UTC -5)
@A455bcd9: What I mean is, they are the ones who make these decisions. Their decision-making process is also not 100% transparent of predictable. E.g. it's not "If you have 1,000 articles, six active users, and have at least 30 edits per day for more than 60 days, you will be approved" (tho that would be a nice start). —Justin (koavf)TCM 15:37, 30 June 2021 (UTC)
I totally understand that their decision-making process is not 100% transparent or predictable and I think it's okay. That's why I wanted data to know the minimum/maximum/average/median. m:Language proposal policy says: " At least five active users must edit that language regularly before a test project will be considered successful." but nothing more... It's quite disappointing :( A455bcd9 (talk) 15:44, 30 June 2021 (UTC)
I don't know if it's possible to easily get these data, since - as you say - the pages are mostly deleted now. Some things like number of articles and their sizes could maybe be deduced from initial dumps of the subdomains. Approval by langcom is solely based on the fact of whether a sustainable community of at least several users exists to ensure that a new wiki will continue to be active; not on the number of articles or the time it has already existed. --MF-W {a, b} 09:48, 1 July 2021 (UTC)

Change directionality & font[edit source]

Hi, With @AdrianAbdulBaha: and others we want to contribute to Wp/ajp. But we have two issues:

  • Directionality: this Wikipedia is written with the Arabic script but the directionality is setup as left-to-right. How can we change it to right to left?
  • Font: apparently on Windows (I'm on MacOS so I don't know) ajp (and also apc) fonts aren't displayed correctly. The problem doesn't exist for arz (Egyptian), ary (Moroccan), Wp/arq (Algerian). More details can be found here. How can we solve this problem on the ajp Wikipedia?

A455bcd9 (talk) 12:03, 3 July 2021 (UTC)

To be clear, ajp defaults to Arial, which is also how ar Wikipedia appears to me. Meanwhile, ary Wikipedia displays in Segoe UI & arz Wikipedia — & Persian Wikipedia, for what it's worth — displays in Tahoma (which is what we want to use). It seems there must be a way to choose which of these fonts to display on Wikipedia. Also, I believe all three of these fonts are installed in all Windows computers by default, so it's not a matter of having to download a language pack on the user's end. AdrianAbdulBaha (talk) 12:32, 3 July 2021 (UTC)
Hi, I created a pull request here to solve the issue, based on advice I received on the Moroccan Arabic Wikipedia (see here).
We still have the font issue to solve though... A455bcd9 (talk) 18:22, 4 July 2021 (UTC)
Is this still a problem? --MF-W {a, b} 12:16, 20 July 2021 (UTC)
Hi,
The directionality issue was solved for the Incubator by your edit on MediaWiki:Common.css, thanks a lot!
Regarding the font, it looks fine on macOS, iOS, and Android. On Windows some users (such as @AdrianAbdulBaha:) don't like the Arabic font used on Wp/ajp. However, it is the same font as the one used on the Arabic (ar) Wikipedia, with millions of visitors. (On the other hand, on the English Wikipedia and on other Wikimedia projects the font used on texts tagged with "ajp" is really hard to read on Windows and we're still looking for a solution, cf. this new Phabricator ticket and this template with a temporary solution) So even though it could be improved, I think it's okay for now and not really important at this stage. The technicalities can be resolved later. For instance once the test project is more active or once the "real" Wikipedia is created we may consider setting up a specific font for ajp (arz did that on their Wikipedia for instance, but in any case it would require contributors to agree on a common font...).
That's why I consider that the issue is fixed for the Incubator. But this is only my opinion and other contributors may think differently. Thanks for your help. A455bcd9 (talk) 07:49, 21 July 2021 (UTC)

Simple English Wikivoyage[edit source]

I would like to propose to start incubating the Simple English Wikivoyage. In some area's of the current English Wikivoyage, the understand section may be hard for some non native english speakers, and most of the time, except for the English Wikivoyage, the relevant language wikivoyage only has whichever country article it relates to, and major world cities. While I'm saying this as a native en speaker from Australia, there's a lot of countries that have english as an official language, but have numerous local languages which don't have its own language Wikivoyage, in particular, some of the Indian, South African, and Nigerian areas.

I also believe that a simple english wikivoyage may also be more beneficial for someone wishing to print out their items for travel, but don't want to read the whole history and wordy bits, that take some time, and for those who read it on mobile, it may chew up mobile data in some areas.

Cheers, --SHB2000 (talk) 12:52, 8 July 2021 (UTC)

Just so you know, simple projects have generally been discouraged and it's very unlikely that any more would be accepted or were simple.wp or simple.wikt proposed today, they would not have been approved. —Justin (koavf)TCM 17:59, 11 July 2021 (UTC)

Wikidata property Wikimedia Incubator URL (P9748)[edit source]

The newly created property can be used to link to the main page of active projects, sample: d:Q35497#P9748. It's used to generate links to these on d:Help:Wikimedia_language_codes/lists/all/in_nl. Jura1 (talk) 07:28, 20 July 2021 (UTC)

Wp/she should be Wp/shx[edit source]

The She Wikipedia test wiki has the wrong language code - it's using the language code (she) of the Sheko language of Africa, rather than the language code (shx) of the She language of China like it should. --Sailor Ceres (talk) 22:32, 24 July 2021 (UTC)

The page only contains seven subpages (less than 100), so this should be one simple click for an administrator. 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 10:44, 25 July 2021 (UTC)

Help in Wn/lad/Xablón:Perú[edit source]

Hi, I need help at Wn/lad/Xablón:Perú because all things are unorganized -help would be appreciated- to organize things. atomi20¿some problem? 22:53, 28 July 2021 (UTC)

@Xbspiro: thanks, but now see this. atomi20¿some problem? 00:04, 29 July 2021 (UTC)
@Atomi20: Yeah, I have seen it. Unfortunately I am not skilled in CSS. 'Clear' probably restricts textflow next to the boxes, but I am not sure about that at all. - Xbspiro (talk) 00:10, 29 July 2021 (UTC)
@Atomi20: This will not solve the problem, just note that the correct name would be Template:Wn/lad/Perú instead of Wn/lad/Xablón:Perú. (Because of policy.) - Xbspiro (talk) 00:40, 29 July 2021 (UTC)
