There are hundreds of identical messages of this kind. Can we please have one parameterized message, or one per project, if need be?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)18:12, 10 October 2015

There was a big discussion on the topic, see phabricator:T112349. For sure, they must be marked optional.

Nemo (talk)18:22, 10 October 2015

I am working on an extended version of GRAMMAR for Colognian (ksh) which is going to catch all of them, and I believe that would be possible with other languages as well. Amire80 is treating the same for Russian, if I am not mistaken.

Can someone confirm that $1 actually corresponds to a working parameter? I had seen this message while proofreading as it is with "$1" shown in the button label. --Basetalkcontributions 14:50, 9 October 2015 (UTC)

Needs PLURAL support on the number of items in the list $1

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)10:06, 10 March 2015

There is, in the message before this one, Templatedata-modal-table-param-importoption ("Add $1 suggested parameters"). That suffices. So PLURAL support on the list length is not really needed here once more.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)14:40, 6 October 2015
 

Needs PLURAL support on the number of item referred to.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)13:45, 26 February 2015

I did not find a place in the extension defining this message (PdfHandler) where the message is used. Does anybody know? Can I submit a patch amending the message and its documentation leaving it open where the additional parameter is to be submitted to the message handling system?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)20:30, 31 May 2015
 

Since 'status (s)' should not be translated, should not it be enclosed with <code> tags? See ksh translation.

Macofe (talk)13:55, 4 October 2015

namespce -> namespace

Macofe (talk)12:48, 4 October 2015

What is the outline format?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)08:37, 6 October 2015

What is meant with "excluding IPs" ?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)18:10, 30 September 2015

What I understand is "without IPs" because there is an item below specifically for carrires's IPs.

Macofe (talk)21:48, 30 September 2015

IP Addresses, i suppose. Ok, thank you.

Needs PLURAL support on the number of uploads.

What is a notation card? Please explain

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)08:44, 30 September 2015

Message cookie-policy-site-name is missing.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)10:55, 29 September 2015

Please remove the first sentence from this message. It is superfluous, euphemistic or subjective, and unnecessarily verbose.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)10:47, 29 September 2015

The last sentence makes very little sense and should be clarified.

Lokal Profil (talk)15:33, 19 November 2014

This refers to the fact that the dbname (like "commonswiki" or "svwiki") is made by the language code + project name for content projects and by subdomain + main domain for all the others.

Nemo (talk)23:15, 15 February 2015

I think your description is a lot clearer than the current message:

"The code is either the unique identifier for specials or, for languages, the project code."

Alternatively a combo such as:

"The code is either the language code + project code for content projects or the subdomain + main domain for all the others.
Lokal Profil (talk)08:45, 16 February 2015
 

Are you sure you got this right? My understanding was that "code" refers to code field in the output. Now I'm confused. New wording says that "code" is "technically dbname/wikiid", but "dbname" is a separate field in the output, and field or parameter name "wikiid" doesn't seem to be present. Seems that now it's more like the description of "dbname" not "code". My advice is that we make it clear in the original message that "code" is an output field.

Pikne07:51, 24 May 2015

There are two different "code"s listed in the API: the first refers to the ISO 639 code of the project. The second refers to the project suffix ("wiki", "wikiquote" and so forth). It's definitely confusing (I created T100459) -- I'm not sure what this is supposed to really say, as the "language code + project code" it describes is actually the "dbname" field.

Microchip08 (talk)20:46, 26 May 2015
 

I think that for a start, to have less confusion, we could revert gerrit:212925.

Or we could improve the original sentence like this:

  • "The code is either the unique identifier for specials or, for languages, the project code." →
  • "The code for information about a site to return is either the unique identifier for specials or, for languages, the project code"

So it should be more clear that it's intended to describe the code in output for for "smsiteprop" parameter and not for "smlangprop" (see w:Special:ApiSandbox#action=sitematrix).

Whether API field(s) should be renamed (phab:T100459) would be a separate issue then.

$1's → {{GRAMMAR|Genitive|$1}}

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)18:53, 25 September 2015

GRAMAR support on $1 needed. GENDER support on $2 needed.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)08:53, 25 September 2015

GRAMMAR support on $1 needed.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)08:52, 25 September 2015

GENDER support needed in 'Welcome', please.

Macofe (talk)13:02, 23 September 2015

What is "link" - imperative or noun?

What is a/the "score node" ?

What is a/the "override_midi attribute"?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)17:57, 22 September 2015

Needs LANGUAGE GRAMMAR on $1.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)17:53, 22 September 2015

Is "link" an imperative, or a noun?
