If you need help or want to make a request regarding the Intuition project, please create a thread below.

Requests such as the following:

Request a new tool to be added

Be sure you pass the following requirements as you follow these 5 steps:

  1. The tool is in a Git repository (or other public location) where the source code can be found (Tools translated by must be open-source).
  2. To ease the transition from English to multilingual it is recommended you start using the Intuition class in your tool before placing your request here. You can create a local development i18n-file and load it in the class as if it was synced from to the central i18n directory. Read more about this in the Intuition documentation. By preparing your English messages you will save yourself the trouble of a complicated switch. This way, once it's in, all you have to do is delete your local file and remove the call to $I18N->loadTextdomainFromFile().
  3. Show users of your tool that it is available in multiple languages and that they should visit the Intuition page to configure their settings. The easier way to do that is to call $I18N->dashboardBacklink() somewhere.
  4. Make a request here by creating a thread (be sure to include an URL to a live version of it as hosted on

There is a wikilink-lookalike used as a link anchor. The TWN error check should not be applied to the bogus wikilink.

Text lacking sense, or grammatical structure.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)12:16, 3 March 2015

What is the unit of time here?

Marfuas (talk)13:26, 17 February 2015

Credit like pay without owning money or credit like giving proper mentions and thanks to contributors, or what else?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)22:17, 28 December 2014

"Credit" refers to attributing the author

Sorry for very late reply.

There should be different messages in different contexts. E.g. for xtools-articleinfo "others" is part of the graph legend. In the latter part of the same page "others" is preceded by a number. In Estonian different grammatical cases apply for these uses.

There is a text in double square backets inside an HTML link in this message which may make sense stylistically but appears to like a wiki link which yields an error message when the text inside the square backets is translated. The error check should imho be voided, or the original message be changed.

There is a link anchor of the "klick here" type which direly needs rewording. See MW:i18n#Use meaningful link anchors for details and hints.

Click "Allow" to allow the browser to access your microphone.

I am pretty certain that "allow" has to be different depending on computer/browser language settings and cannot be generic. Is there a way to be specific and correct?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)12:10, 26 November 2014

Please do not repeat the string in message documentation. Replace it with an explanation of rank and world etc.

JavaScript spelled incorrectly.

Siebrand00:56, 27 October 2014

Wikis should be lower case.

Siebrand00:48, 27 October 2014

Punctuation is incorrect.

Siebrand00:56, 27 October 2014

Shouldn't "metawiki" be capitalized?

As toolserver has closed service:

Shirayuki (talk)00:18, 17 September 2014

Is this for crediting the creator/author?

Jopparn (talk)13:22, 27 June 2014

It is for crediting things (e.g. jQuery) that are used in the tools.

Kenrick95 (talk)01:16, 22 July 2014

This is very unclear. Could more documentation be added?

Jopparn (talk)12:31, 27 June 2014

Done :)

Kenrick95 (talk)01:15, 22 July 2014

"german wikipedia" should be "German Wikipedia".

Lokal Profil (talk)16:36, 2 July 2014

Proposed a fix myself: pull request

Lokal Profil (talk)17:40, 2 July 2014

Typo: "Interwiki winks" should be "Interwiki links".

Beta16 (talk)13:22, 17 June 2014

Done Done Heh, well spotted :).
