Hi, the following three messages do not seem to be ok:

  1. Mwe-upwiz-error-too-long
  2. Mwe-upwiz-error-too-short
  3. Mwe-upwiz-error-bad-chars

They relate to fields as being to short, to long, etc. Shouldn't it be entries being to short, to long, etc. ?

I don't understand the comment.

  • "too" is the correct word in English to imply an excess of something, not "to".
  • It talks about fields because the interface uses standard form fields. The data from these are later used to create wikitext entries.
NeilK20:53, 25 June 2010

Hi NeilK, usually an editor is not able to change the length of a field in a form, but the length of the entry put into a field. In contrast this message is asking to do the opposite: If the entry is too (thanks!) long for the field, please change the length of the field. To me this sounds very strange and this is why I posted my question. Cheers --kgh 22:31, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

kgh22:31, 25 June 2010

I apologize for not following up with you. I was not aware that you had sent additional messages. Maybe I don't have the right settings to get email from this.

The error message is trying to say that "the value you have typed contains too many characters", or "the value you have typed contains too few characters".

In English, we usually say "long" or "short" and the meaning is understood. There seems to be some confusion here between length as in centimeters or inches, and length in the sense of number of characters. Is that what was bothering you?

Should I rename these messages to something like "over-maximum-chars" / "under-minimum-chars" ?

NeilK17:55, 9 August 2010

No problem. I should have left a message on your talk page earlier.

However, your answer confirmed to me that I have localised correctly. Shouldn't the messages say "This entry is too long/short" instead of "This field is too long/short" or "This entry contains symbols that are not allowed." instead of "This field contains symbols that are not allowed." My question never related to short or long. I am sorry that I may have phrased my question incorrectly.

Cheers

How about this?

       'mwe-upwiz-error-blank' => 'This field is required.',
       'mwe-upwiz-error-too-long' => 'Please make this shorter than $1 {{PLURAL:$1|character|characters}}.',
       'mwe-upwiz-error-too-short' => 'Please make this longer than $1 {{PLURAL:$1|character|characters}}.',
       'mwe-upwiz-error-bad-chars' => 'This entry contains symbols that are not allowed. Please do not use wikitext or HTML here.',

Extension:FBConnect / Improvement of localisation

Hi, it would be cool if the wikilink (Wikipedia:Help:Logging in#Why log in?) provided within the message Fbconnect-intro ("This wiki is enabled with Facebook Connect, the next evolution of Facebook platform. This means that when you are connected, in addition to the normal benefits you see when logging in, you will be able to take advantage of some extra features...") could be localised. I am sure that practically every language version of wikipedia provides information with should be provided by following the link. Cheers

Meaning of this message?

({{PLURAL:$1|One intermediate revision|$1 intermediate revisions}} by more than $2 {{PLURAL:$2|user|users}} not shown) from MediaWiki:Diff-multi-manyusers

As I assume: From the second part of the sentence ( {{PLURAL:$2|) it is clear that there are more than one user, Then how more than one user can do "One intermediate revision" (First plural $1)? Something missing?
Praveenp07:03, 14 September 2010

Please have a look at the translation hint. It should be clear.


This message appears in the revision history of a page when comparing two versions which aren't consecutive, and the intermediate revisions have been edited by more than 100 users.

Parameters:

  • $1 - the number of revisions, will always be 101 or more
  • $2 - the number of users that were found, which was limited at 100


Siebrand09:05, 14 September 2010

So doesn't this mean that the PLURAL:$1 is unnecessary?

McDutchie11:43, 14 September 2010

For many languages yes, but it is needed for some.

Siebrand11:47, 14 September 2010
 
 
 

Is anyone able to figure out the precise contents of $1, in Centralnotice-multiple languages ("multiple ($1)")?

Hamilton Abreu18:50, 11 August 2010

$1 is a number. More precisely, the number of languages a notice is available in. It is always greater than 3.

Siebrand06:50, 23 August 2010

Many thanks.
