Template:Wikia[edit]

This template needs an update to reflect the move to Miraheze, but in its present form that most likely will require somekind of #if-switch that functions as "{{wikia|incubatorplus:Wp/X}}" replacing "[[:wikia:incubatorplus:Wp/X|...]]" with "[[:miraheze:incubator:Wp/X|...]]", if that shortcut works. This is way above my wiki skills though. --OWTB (talk) 12:43, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

wp/nys origins/nyitting[edit]

I would have thought AGF was valid here as well, the reason for page move to user space is because the terms arent sufficiently equal between english and nyungar. Origins in engish is where it started, nyitting in nyungar also referred to as dreamtime in english{another inaccuracy) as has also been called the cold times also not accurate, but closer to physical time point. I didnt leave redirect behind because I dont like redirects to userspace, the articles are in user space because Darwins theory of evolution doesnt equal nyitting, one is the development of people(physical) and the other is the development of a peoples culture. With nyungar the "stories" of nyitting and cultural development are also reflecting geographic history from fault lines shifting, to glaciers melting, and sea levels rising.

@Gnangarra: It wasn't a matter of AGF at all, and I'm sorry you took it that way. I was simply trying to make things easier for you: I thought you could potentially move the page to wherever in mainspace you really think it should go and then start editing there. But you can do it in user space if you prefer, I have no problem with that. I also have no problem with your not leaving a redirect behind if that's what you prefer. The only (small) problem was that the move left behind broken redirects in the original location (Wp/nys/Origins and Talk:Wp/nys/Origins). Any time you move or delete a page (either one), it's simply worthwhile to check incoming links first to make sure you are not going to break something. (Click on "What links here" at the left of the page to find out.) That's all. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:03, 4 October 2019 (UTC)
Redlinks arent broken links, they are links to articles where appropriate content needs to be written. The content that was put there doesnt fit the translation from english to nyungar. Gnangarra (talk) 13:35, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
@Gnangarra: I'm not intending to argue with you, and nothing you say is wrong, exactly. However, know that if I find a redirect that (a) is broken (i.e., its target is gone) and (b) has no incoming links, I will delete it as part of routine cleanup. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:41, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

Saraiki Wikipedia[edit]

Dear, What are updates about Saraiki Wikipedia.Sraiki (talk) 14:25, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

I was about to write you. Please look in about 30 minutes at Talk:Wp/skr/پہلا پرت. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:27, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
Thanks Dear Sraiki (talk) 14:35, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
Dear StevenJ81 I am happy to know that Language Com: is working on it. Kindly this be approved as soon as possible, please.Sraiki (talk) 14:11, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
@Sraiki: You're welcome. Just to keep your expectations reasonable: (1) It may take another week or two to finalize approval. (2) After that, it will still take some time to create the wiki. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:16, 11 October 2019 (UTC)

Saraiki to me. Saraiki is similar to Punjabi so I can understand it and confirm that this looks legitimate to me. see: https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/langcom/2019-October/002476.html Sraiki (talk) 13:22, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

@Sraiki: We're aware of this. We're trying to finalize things. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:32, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
@StevenJ81:, Thanks for pushing Saraiki Wiktionary. As Saraiki is phonetic language, i.e. written according to sounds and alphabets are according to sound, so there is no need for writing the pronunciation separately. Sufficient work has been done. Thanks again.Sraiki (talk) 13:54, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
@Sraiki: Thank you for that information. Question: Does your Wiktionary have a project page (Wiktionary: namespace page) describing how that works? That would probably be useful and worthwhile to have. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:56, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
@StevenJ81: Thanks, Namespace page will be similar to namespace page of Wikipedia. There is no special Namespace page separately. It is translated in the https://translatewiki.net/. Sraiki (talk) 14:10, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
@StevenJ81: Dear, Saraiki community is thankful to you for progress in approval of Saraiki Wiktionary. We are also thankful for the approval and language vitrifaction. Namespace page for Wiktionary is available,
