Template talk:Welcome

From Wikimedia Incubator

Why should this template not be substed?[edit source]

Why should this template not be substed? In de.wp, for example, people are told to subst it because new users could be confused when they just see {{welcome}} on their talk page's source code:
"Durch die Substitution wirken auch Begrüßungsvorlagen nicht so maschinell. Substituierte Vorlagen [...] verwirren Newbies weniger als durch eine direkte Einbindung." – "The substitution also makes the welcome templates not looking so automatically. Newbies are less confused by substituted templates than by direct inclusion"

The reason whas that they otherwise get a long list of all translations of "welcome". But we can add another template like "Template:Welcome translations" to this template so we can subst this template. SPQRobin 15:49, 29 November 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Welcome/lus[edit source]

Maybe create Template:Welcome/lus based on this translate by User:RMizo? --Kaganer (talk) 16:23, 19 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Template:Welcome/haw[edit source]

Im trying to create a Hawaiian version of the template but it wont let me create it. It always says error because it needs a prefix but I dont need to prefix it... it is not part of any wikis in Hawaiian but apart of incubator itself. Any suggestions?

@Kolonahe: You may translate the template on User:Kolonahe/Template:Welcome/haw. When you are finished, ask an administrator to move the translated version to Template:Welcome/haw. (As a normal user, you are allowed to create prefixed pages only, hence the error message.) - Xbspiro (talk) 05:41, 12 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Translate extension[edit source]

Does it make sense to use the Translate extension here? --MF-W {a, b} 17:52, 12 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, I think so. It would enable translation without admin intervention at the very least. (The one-liners from {{Welcome-translations}} could also be saved this way.) - Xbspiro (talk) 12:49, 13 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
