Category:Incubator:Test wikis of languages of Indonesia[edit]

Isn't Category:Incubator:Test wikis of languages of Southeast Asia‎ already enough? Or the last one should be splitted? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 09:00, 26 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi @Liuxinyu970226:. The reason is this. First, more than 700 living languages are spoken in Indonesia. That's why, I think better to be splitted for each country, rather than using one big category such as Southeast Asia. Second reason is that in Indonesia already had Wikimedia Indonesia which supervised not only Wikipedia Bahasa Indonesia, also 10 wiki languages which already have its wiki. Balinese itself, and may be another languages in this Incubator, will be below this community. Thank you.--Joseagush (talk) 04:40, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
But then, some of these languages are also used in Malaysia, e.g. Madurese, aren't they? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 23:06, 7 June 2019 (UTC)
Hi @Liuxinyu970226:. If many Madurese/Indonesian speakers in Malaysia it doesn't mean its coming from Malaysia. Its same like many Mexican speak Spanish in America doesn't mean the country category included in America. I would like categorised the languages based on its origin country. Thats my opinion to make the category. Thanks. Joseagush (talk) 04:15, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

I don't have a problem with a further drilled-down category, as long as (a) it has at least three members, (b) is a subcategory of the parent, and (c) we don't double-categorize in both the parent category and subcategory. (The exception to the last rule is that pages in tests can always be in the main test category, for page-counting purposes, as well as in subcategories of the test.)

Hi @StevenJ81:, Thanks for the advice. Ok, I will try to categorized the articles as the rule. Thanks. Joseagush (talk) 02:06, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

User page for user Dhxrm08[edit]

I can't tell if this is appropriate content for a user page or not. If so, just please let me know here. (I'll watch your page.) If not, please guide that user as to the proper use of user pages. Thanks. StevenJ81 (talk) 17:00, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

On further consideration, look at this list. A lot of new user pages were created for your project on that date. Would you mind just going through them, and if they're appropriate, click on the "patrolled" link; if not, please ask the user to fix. Thanks. StevenJ81 (talk) 17:02, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
Hi @StevenJ81:, Thanks for reaching me. Yes, there is Wikilatih (Wikipedia Training) on that day. We try to gathered local communities which active to used the language (Balinese language) for this project. Most of them didn't know this project either how to use this tools. We trained them but I think not so well. So on behalf, forgive me for not known what they do. I will try to patrolled them. Thanks. Btw, they used their native language on the user pages. Joseagush (talk) 02:02, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. I assumed something like that. But are their user pages appropriate? (That is, they're just identifying themselves, perhaps giving a line or two of introduction about interests? No advertising, no resumes, things like that?) I usually use Google translate to check things like this, but Google translate doesn't know the language. :( StevenJ81 (talk) 13:48, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
Yups, they just introduce themself in their native language and why they interested in this project. I will try to translate it in English and put the language template to identify. Thank you. Yes, Balinese language is still not recognised by google translate and that is my dream to make this language accessible in google translate. Right now, we just made online dictionary using MediaWiki platform here.Joseagush (talk) 01:46, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
