Phabricator qqq pages are non-intuitive (IMHO)

When translating Phabricator, pages like Phabricator:phabricator-project-4917eb42b43b64f5/qqq doesn't offer me really much of context, although maybe it's just me.

13:55, 28 February 2018

Having those autolinked to the source code is work-in-progress. I believe there isn't proper human written message documentation unless someone writes it.

17:24, 2 March 2018

Problem is that we can't be expected to provide good translations with bad documentation. I know it is not an issue of you nor from itself; just feedback that this should be fixed where appropriate.

16:03, 17 March 2018

I'm sympathetic, but Phabricator developers have shown very little interest for a good i18n and what it entails (Nike was even forced to design an entirely new process to suit their non-standard methods and formats), so the alternative would be no i18n at all.

Our hope is that with this collaboration they will learn to appreciate i18n and adopt better practices. If it doesn't happen, at some point we'll need to reconsider...

Seeing the edit toolbar duplicated in LQT

Edited by author.
Last edit: 13:21, 21 February 2018

Hello. Does somebody else see their edit toolbars (to put text in bold or italics, etc.) duplicated when they interact with LQT? I do. Thanks.

PD.: it's the enhaced edit toolbar the one I'm using, if that helps.

12:49, 21 February 2018

Yes I do.

Do we have Phab ticket already?

User notification should be disabled

Edited by author.
Last edit: 20:36, 16 March 2018

MediaWiki now also notifies users if their name is in the "summary" field.

Though, we really don't want to notify the previous author each time we revert a vandalism…

Therefore, the message MediaWiki:Revertpage/en should be updated from:

Reverted edits by [[Special:Contributions/$2|$2]] ([[User talk:$2|talk]]) to last revision by [[User:$1|$1]]


Reverted edits by [[Special:Contributions/$2|$2]] ([[User talk:$2|talk]]) to last revision by [[:User:$1|$1]]
15:38, 16 March 2018

This is currently discussed on Phabricator:

16:45, 16 March 2018

Regardless of the fixing in Echo, I feel we could add the colon there as well for the future. But that's for a Phabricator ticket as well if people agree.

16:00, 17 March 2018

Please repair this. There is a typing error (bettter instead of better). Thanks.

A question about how to change language name

Hi. Would somebody teach me how to change language name from "한국어 (조선)" to "조선말"? I couldn't find it in CLDR and MessagesKo_kp.php of phabricator. Thanks.

08:59, 10 March 2018

You may consider submitting a Phabricator task, we may find out that how this is possible in our codes.

Request to create a new project


Wikimedia Research would like to map section titles across six languages (ar, en, es, fr, ja, ru) and we have everything set up for it. We're planning on sending an email to Wikipedia users who can help us with this mapping. Our email needs to be in these six languages and that's why we're requesting a new project here. Would it be possible for you to create a project for this purpose?


01:19, 9 March 2018

Are you sure you couldn't do this with a translatable page on Meta?

We don't really "create" projects here, we just register l10n files from project's version control systems to this platform.

11:18, 13 March 2018

Thanks for the reply, Nike. Meta makes sense.

Extant date-stamp errors in ZU (MediaWiki)

The contributor who translated the months March and April into isiZulu (ZU) for MediaWiki in November 2012 switched the two, and hasn't been active since. Nor are there any other translators active in ZU. Yesterday I joined up here and made those two corrections - but with no one to review them, through what process will the changes be accepted and activated? I didn't find the answer in the FAQs. Meanwhile all ZUWP activity this month is being dated for April. What happens next?

Change logo on Wikipedia

I updated the logo on nds-nl.wikipedia about a month ago, but the logo has not changed since I updated it on File:Wiki.png like it used to, does anyone know if something has changed, or does it just take longer to become visible? (I know this has nothing to do with translating the interface, but didn't know where else to post this question.)

19:53, 12 March 2018

The Wikimedia Foundation took this power away from wiki administrators an year or so ago, so you have to go through the m:Requesting wiki configuration changes process.

If you changed the translation, remember to update m:User:Cbrown1023/Logos.

20:05, 12 March 2018

hi all, just to report a tipo: 'BMP cahracter' should be 'BMP character' Thanks.

11:50, 11 March 2018

Who can block this user, it's confirmed as the sockpuppet of User:Assoc, still translating Phabricator via machine translation and without any polish.

Anyway, this user is making confusion between @Wong128hk: and him.

12:40, 10 March 2018

Please block Acamicamacaraca

Please block Acamicamacaraca in Vandalism.

13:20, 24 February 2018

... Without comment...

22:45, 24 February 2018

I agree this user should get blocked.

10:15, 10 March 2018

Can someone check User:Acamicamacaraca. I think he is sock puppet. If he is, I recommend to block Ip Acamicamacaraca from creating new accouts.

Why: Him comment on previous section is really weird.

16:16, 25 February 2018

A new sock puppet of User:Mouse21. Can anyone check that and block that IP from creating account.

16:24, 25 February 2018

I agree this user should get blocked.

Change Wikimedia Mobile Apps message group name to Wikimedia Mobile.


There is message group called "Wikimedia Mobile Apps" although the Translation page was moved to "Wikimedia Mobile" name. So the name of the message group need to change from Wikimedia Mobile Apps to Wikimedia Mobile.

15:58, 9 March 2018

Yes, just like that :) Thanks!

Can I use bot here for correcting Javanese incorrect spelling?

I see many Javanese messages with inconsistency on the spelling. I find it is tiring and boring to correct them one by one. Can I use bot here for correcting Javanese incorrect spelling? I've listed some standard terms here.

10:03, 29 January 2018

Yes. You can. Open new account for bot and request bot flag.

14:58, 31 January 2018

Hi, I've created a bot here User:NoiX180Bot. Where can I request the bot flag? Thank you.

02:37, 8 March 2018

I no know.

Template:Delete and others

I see some people have copied some templates from English Wikipedia here. I am not following this process – all requests should be made here on this Support page.

If someone wants to change the process, I am not opposed, but that should be done properly by adding that to Succession_plan#Translator_liaison, for example, and picking up on that role :)

08:28, 5 March 2018

Nike, sorry but what are you talking about?

19:15, 5 March 2018

Which part is unclear? :)

I am just trying to set expectations.

19:19, 5 March 2018


14:43, 6 March 2018

Nike, do you mean @Verdy p:?

01:02, 8 March 2018

Looks like magic word. Is this really to be translated?

09:35, 12 September 2017

The Huaylas Ancash Quechua is a language diferentes than Quechua . Quechua is not a only language , Quechua is a macrolanguage , Ayacucho Quechua is different than Cajamarca Quechua and is different than Huaylas Quechua Example: A.Q Punchaw = day H.Q Hanaq = day C.Q P'unchaw = day Ayacucho Quechua is similar to Cusco Quechua for those languages there is an only alphabet Example Mariaq = Maria's Mariap = Maria's Southern Quechua Alphabet Mariap = Maria's Other example : A.Q Ñuqanchik C.Q Nuqanchik

En = We( inclusive)

21:46, 13 September 2017

Autonym=Qichwa, Nunashimi or Runashimi

Fallback to Spanish

01:42, 27 January 2018

@Amire80: How do you think this request?

04:53, 25 January 2018

I'll do it.

To be sure that the autonym spelling is unique, I'll use the one found at the dictionary that is cited at : "anqash qichwa".

License short name


In MediaWiki:Mwe-upwiz-license-cc-by-sa-3.0-gfdl/en, "CC BY-SA-3.0" should be replaced by "CC BY-SA 3.0" (source).

18:57, 22 February 2018

I will fix this. I claimed task on phabricator.

UPDATE: I created patch on gerrit which will resolve this.

20:28, 3 March 2018

I am nominating for administrator right

I want to help busy administrators in everyday tasks

21:14, 27 February 2018

So, no comments? I am very sad... xD

22:32, 1 March 2018

We generally require more experience and we don't currently need more administrators, so the answer for now is "no thanks".
