ASL Wikipedia[edit]

I see you have been working on the ASL Wikipedia. I am wondering how this could be used with the ASL Wiktionary. I understand video sign language, but I do not have a good command of Sutton SignWriting. There doesn't seem to be a way to copy-paste a SignWriting word so that I could lookup its translation. Do you have any ideas, or do you know anyone else who can help me with this?

hi, this project ASL WIKI is inactive?? --SurdusVII [SMS] 14:42, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
@SurdusVII, I don't know if I'd call it "inactive". It certainly hasn't been edited in a while, but I think that's largely because we don't have an easily available input method built into the wiki right now. I'm working on fixing this, but currently users have to copy-paste ASL text from a separate program in order to add content to the wiki. --Yair rand (talk) 14:49, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
understand.. but it would be better to have them on video rather than in Signwriting?? --SurdusVII [SMS] 15:00, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
@SurdusVII: No, I don't think so. Video is not really either editable by multiple people, nor "readable" in the manner that makes Wikipedia particularly useful for skimming through and looking more at particular areas. You can't improve someone else's phrasing of something, or explanation of a small area of a topic, or correct simple mistakes, if the content is just video. Text allows links, sections, easily-consumed large portions of data, infoboxes, clean references, and so on, which are impossible with video. Everything that makes a wiki a wiki, isn't something that can be done with video. Certainly, like the there may be associated video files similar to the w:Wikipedia:Spoken articles in spoken languages, but those would be secondary to the actual collaboratively-built text. --Yair rand (talk) 17:03, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Did you find out anything about linking ASL Wikipedia with the ASL Wiktionary? There doesn't seem to be any activity on the ASL Wiktionary. Positivesigner (talk) 15:30, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Wp/scl/Common.js[edit]

You are right sir, shina is spoken language. I want to create Pakistan Sign Language MediaWiki:Wp/psl/Commons.js--Raki 09:11, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
@Rachitrali: Ah, I see. So, the ISO 639-3 code for Pakistani Sign Language is actually pks, not psl, so the correct page would be MediaWiki:Wp/pks/Commons.js. Also, you probably want to omit the two lines about SWKB.config since that breaks the script if it's applied to languages that don't have their fingerspelling alphabets in the script language data. Also, unless you're planning to fork the script, you probably want the line importScript( "User:Yair rand/SWKB.js" );, instead of pointing to the non-existent page in your userspace. Are you fluent in Pakistani Sign Language? --Yair rand (talk) 09:17, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
@Yair rand: thanks for pointing out the errors, I am not fluent in Pakistani sign language, thanks --Raki 13:04, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
