Proposal to change 2 links on the page Project:About

Jump to navigation Jump to search

If you mean that you don't have the rights, you do. The FAQ is supposed to be general and better for the audience of an about page, but I agree that it isn't with regard to plural so I'll replace the link now. As for fallback languages, I think that the FAQ entry is way clearer; it's not clear to me what's the difference with the other page, which repeats some things and adds some info on how to work with fallback languages here rather than about what they are.

The Plural link goes to the plural page from the english version of the About page. However, the change to the link has been reverted in the english source to message 49 of the sub-group Project:About in translatable pages. So this change will not be reflected in the translations of the page.

The benefit of linking to the entry on fallback languages on the " languages" page is to increase the number of links to that page, and also because it includes a definition of supported languages at the top of that page.

I find it difficult to edit my own contributions to documentation here. So I would appreciate either:

  • more detailed comments on how the text on fallback languages on " languages" can be improved or
  • you improve it yourself.

The page only needed to be marked for translation, yesterday I failed due to connection problems. I agree that the languages page needs more links, you've spent good time on it and it would be a waste otherwise; I want to help improve it, but on the path you've imagined for it. Am I right that this is meant more as a manual/documentation of the various processes related to the support of a language? If so, it could be expanded to explain better how to request support and then export of a language, how they interact and are disabled etc., moving the more direct questions such as "what is a fallback language" to the FAQ. The page should then be summarised somewhere on this page with a couple lines and a link. Does it make sense?
