A while ago I changed my username to a new one because I wanted to delete my old name from the internet for certain reasons. All the discussions done before were changed so that my old name would not appear on google. But there is one that still retains the old version despite having already changed it. Can you delete the next page? it is urgent: https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=Thread:User_talk:Navhy/Por_favor,_non_sigas_cambiando_as_traduci%C3%B3ns_sen_consultar&lqt_oldid=81444
I tried deleting it, but I got an error while doing so. Nikerabbit?
and if you can not delete at least edit my old name by "Iváns"
Why is it not possible to delete the page, even if it is change the name of my old nickname for the new!!!
Good morning, I apologize in advance for the inconvenience. I am an admin of vec.wiki, I wanted to ask for information. Among the interwiki on the right of the page, by clicking, the names of the languages localized by continent come out. The Venetian language is found correctly on Europe, however it is official and spoken by 5 million people in southern Brazil (South America). I wanted to ask how it could be done to add it to that list too? https://glottolog.org/resource/languoid/id/vene1258 it is said that Vèneto is spoken in Brazil. Thank you very much in advance for your reply and a good job!
I've just done my introductory translations but in one of them I noticed the en message was incorrect as well, MediaWiki:Donate interface-ARS/en
That should be "Argentine peso", not "Argentinian peso." I've translated it into British English correctly (as it's the same in both en-US and en-GB). But I don't have the permissions to edit that message myself.
Most curious user interface. Site disables keyboard. No go. (archived into a thread initially posted in 2012)
I'm a former en/ru/commons editor, came here after seeing Gmeijssen's notice on ru-wiki. Let me tell you, the "usability features" of this site exceeds the worst of expectations.
I'm writing this in an external editor, to be copy-pasted in mediawiki's edit window. Why? because the site disabled typing Latin characters and most of punctuation marks. The OS, of course, switches keyboard layouts as usually, but all Latin characters typed in the window are converted to Cyrillic gibberisch. Even Latin comma is rendered as Cyrillic б. Four tildes are rendered as ЁЁЁЁ. Right, my IP geolocates to Russia, but even Russians need commas... sometimes... they really do. And then there are Chinese, French, ... - just stuck in here. Don't they need commas, too?
Oh, yes, there's a "Language" selector on top. I managed to switch it to English after around ten failed attempts. It turned out that choosing the first meaningful option (US-EN) is a dead end that redirects to all-Russian. The EN-EN worked, thank you.

- Hello, we're very sorry that you found it so difficult to edit, this is not how it's supposed to work. First, this is enabled by default only for languages which have defined an input method, and it can be disabled in the preferences. Second, I've just tried to set my language to Russian (both as a registered and anonymous) editor, and I was able to write normally: what you described happened only if I explicitly set "русская стандартная" instead of "Немецкий" in the "Метод ввода" menu, and I was still able to disable it entirely by unchecking "Для переключения метода ввода (Ctrl-M)". I believe this is how it's supposed to work, perhaps it depends on your browser? Which browser are you using? If it's too hard to use this website, you can file it as a bug on bugzilla:. Thank you, Nemo (talk) 20:51, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
--- This message is an archive of an old message posted and replied in 2012, that remained at top of the talk page.
Is there a Support page where to ask questions? Could there be such a page for general questions, and another page for particular questions?
What I mean is that this Support page ought to be divided in two separate sections: one for general problems and another for questions concerning a single word or translation of a single message. I don't think the current situation is beneficial to anyone.
I am well aware that I am currently flooding this page with a pile of stuff that I had to postpone for several months lacking spare time. That makes me unhappy, too. On the other hand - I shall have to revert to my normal frequency of editing in few days, so it is going to be over soon.
The flooding itself is not a major problem. The fact that Liquid Threads or something else prevents the easy solution of splitting this "Village Pump" into two or more sections, is a nuisance. There should be multiple sections for various questions.
The TWN core staff won't consider reverting to wikitext discussions.
Could you clarify the use case you have in mind? Did you open some discussion here which you feel could have benefited from a different organisation of the talk page? Is there some discussion which you would have liked to follow but were unable to?
Splitting is not currently possible, but I proposed a fix some years ago: phabricator:T40635.
Instead of simply removing localized texts, why not make this page a normal translateable page? After all, there are only a few keystroke that need translation.
I'm not aware of LiquidThreads working in translatable pages.
I noticed that the topsection of the SUpport page is not translated. Would it be possible to include this in a message (similar to MediaWiki:Bw-request-translator-intro/en) or would another solution be better? Also if an admin can delete Support/top it would be appreciated (with lt i guess there is less need to separate the header from the discussions}.
You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:
The action you have requested is limited to users in the group: Users.
You can view and copy the source of this page.
Lokal Profil (talk)
The category is not particularly big currently; it's usually above 100 items. In practice teams as such don't follow anything, only individuals do; and for each component there are different individuals with different preferences. Support/Open requests is a more useful view.
Thanks for the Support/Open requests link. It is useful but from it I'm guessing that no notification is triggered unless you are added as the responsible dev in the Support-template. If there is a good master list for who the default dev is for different extensions then that would be easy to add but I would e.g. have no clue whom to assign as dev for the Echo-messages.
The main point remains though that there should be some process by which the responsible teams (thinking mainly WMF) get notified about issues relating to their extensions. Otherwise the solution is the current one where forgotten requests here end up becoming bugs in bugzilla just so that they get some action. That seems like a somewhat backwards process, not to mention that it results in potentially months of delay whilst the messages in question are untranslated or mistranslated.
Bugzilla is the place where you find the persons that are responsible for handling bugs in many extensions or areas of MediaWiki. Tt is a bit unfortunate that you have to open a bug (i.e. rewrite or copy & paste most of what you aready entered here) in order to really reach them. --Purodha Blissenbach (talk) 10:49, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
