Sorry, I don't know if you're the right person for this but help is needed. This user (Luckas [ talk · contribs ]) is changing translations from European Portuguese to Brazilian. He was warned and reverted but insists on that change. See his contributions for more details please.

    When he doesn't stop changing messages, I can block him. Please let me know further misbehaviour.

      I hope it stops. I'm reverting his incorrect changes for minutes!

        First of all, I'm not a vandal, as this user above tries to say. As I don't intend to make this a war, some words are very similar (only one letter different), these ones I agree to revert, but this represent only a few messages. The real problem comes now:

        Let's make some things clear:

        • There are two main countries that speak Portuguese: Brazil and Portugal. According to http://stats.wikimedia.org/wikimedia/squids/SquidReportPageViewsPerCountryOverview.htm Brazil has 3% of page views in wikipedia and Portugal has 0.4%. That's a big difference, but in fact, the pt version, is an european portuguese version, because most of messages were translated by portuguese editors. What I wanna do is changing some words to brazilian version, because we are much more users.
        • In the past, there was a "pt-pt" (european portuguese) version, but was removed due to lack of translations
        • Some users (not brazilians) translated a lot of messages in pt-br, and I had to correct some. If you want to block someone, block these editors who translated a version they don't speak.
        • I remember the namespace "User" was "Usuário" and somebody changed to "Utilizador", and I didn't see this user complaining about it.
