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]]

This is currently discussed on Phabricator:

Od1n (talk)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.

MarcoAurelio (talk)16:00, 17 March 2018

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

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.)

Servien (talk)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.

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

Christian (talk)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.

I agree this user should get blocked.

Obsuser (talk)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.

Приложение (talk)16:16, 25 February 2018

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

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.

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.

NoiX180 (talk)10:03, 29 January 2018

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

Zoranzoki21 (talk)14:58, 31 January 2018

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

NoiX180 (talk)02:37, 8 March 2018

I no know.

Zoranzoki21 (talk)14:14, 8 March 2018

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

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)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)

Michaelobregon (talk)21:46, 13 September 2017

Fallback to Spanish

Michaelobregon (talk)01:42, 27 January 2018

@Amire80: How do you think this request?

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)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).

Envlh (talk)18:57, 22 February 2018

I will fix this. I claimed task on phabricator.

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

I am nominating for administrator right

I want to help busy administrators in everyday tasks

-Александар Живковић ()21:14, 27 February 2018

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

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

It isn't a user

-Александар Живковић ()21:28, 27 February 2018

Yes he is an user but he can't translate the message

Mogoeilor (talk)16:40, 2 March 2018

I see from the logs that this user's account request was recently denied (again?). The user needs sign up again and go to Special:FirstSteps to provide example translations to complete the sign up process.

Phabricator is being translated here. In order to tag and categorize support requests from it, may I please request that it be added here? Thanks.

Can someone check User:PeppaPig32. I think he is sock puppet of User:Mouse21. If he is, I recommend to block Ip Mouse23 from creating new accouts.

Why: Him comment on previous section is really weird.

Why: Him second edit is undoing my changes at MediaWiki:Tag-AWB/sr-ec wich did User:Mouse21.


22:50, 24 February 2018

Done. I also increased the block on Mouse21.

Variants for Serbian

There's an ongoing discussion on the Serbian Wikipedia about enabling additional variants for that language. Given that its ortography allows the use of Ijekavian and Ekavian reflexes, an "-ijek" variant should be added for both Cyrillic and Latin (we'd then have sr-ec, sr-el, sr-ec-ijek and sr-el-ijek).

Srdjan m (talk)23:23, 24 February 2018

Why ijek instead of ijekavsk? Anyway, both sr-ec and sr-el are making Wikidata contributors confusing and are to be renamed to sr-cyrl-ekavsk and sr-latn-ekavsk as per phab:T117845.

FWIW, in

Type: variant
Subtag: ekavsk
Description: Serbian with Ekavian pronunciation
Prefix: sr
Prefix: sr-Latn
Prefix: sr-Cyrl
Added: 2013-12-02
Type: variant
Subtag: ijekavsk
Description: Serbian with Ijekavian pronunciation
Prefix: sr
Prefix: sr-Latn

Added: 2013-12-02
Liuxinyu970226 (talk)03:47, 25 February 2018

Oh... I didn't know that there was already a subtag for Ijekavian. "Ijekavsk" works just as well. So, can the ijekavsk subtag be enabled here on TW so people can start contributing or do we have to wait for the patch for phab:T117845 to go out (it's been sitting at 'Needs Code-Review Label' for about seven weeks)?
