2008-03-22: New users are treated to a skin other than monobook: modern works better, we think
IMO, the modern skin is good, but it doesn't incorporate anywhere the LOGO of Betawiki. I think the monobook skin which only displays the logo should be kept as default.

- Monobook does no longer show a logo either.. Thanks, GerardM 06:34, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
- Yes, you are right. Actually I checked the modern skin on my home wiki (mr.wiki). There the logo disappeared and then noted the comment. Anyhow, I liked the modern skin over monobook. Regards, --Kaustubh 07:46, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
multiple translations for namespace name possible?
Project:News says: “Soon the MediaWiki namespace Image will be renamed to File. Please update your namespace names now, and we will update them in MediaWiki as soon as the change happens for English.”
However, Special:AdvancedTranslate says: “Special page aliases and magic words can have multiple translations. … Skin names and namespaces can have only one translation” (emphasis added).
If I change the canonical localized namespace name for the Image/File namespace (to the localized equivalent of “File”), this means that I will break all wiki pages that use the old localized namespace name (the localized equivalent of “Image”). Breaking things is obviously a very bad idea. Is there a way to keep the old translation as a non-canonical alias? If yes, it would be a good idea to update the description given on Special:AdvancedTranslate accordingly. Thanks! --UV 08:43, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
