Activate support for webm

Could webm be added as a file format to be displayed? I linked a file used on Wikimedia Commons on the page Translating:Proofreading the messages but it does not display as a video, only as a link. And even on the file page no preview of the file is available. I guess this is just a configuration issue, and adding webm in the right place is enough.

Could you send a patch against the gerrit translatewiki repo?

Nemo (talk)13:16, 30 May 2015

Unfortubately not, since I do not know exactly which parameter need to be changed.

Report User:Cwlin0416's vandalism

User:Cwlin0416 is trying to replace the words established by usage by using a lot of his own words on zh-hant. Where can I stop his selfish behavior? Somebody please tell me. Thank you.--Zhxy 519 (talk) 15:14, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Zhxy 519 (talk)15:14, 27 May 2015

Did you already try to address him/her?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)11:30, 28 May 2015

IIRC, he usually bypass the community consensus

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)12:27, 28 May 2015

I'm MediaWiki user, but i'm not Wikipedia user, and i'm native zh-hant user, I don't know why zh-cn users always want to change the translate which we actually use.

Cwlin0416 (talk)02:45, 29 May 2015

There's also some Taiwanese which are opposing your edit styles (e.g. User:LNDDYL & User:Liaon98)

Although they will more and more accept your translations, Could you please, As I'm crying to request, Follow the community consensus???

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)04:44, 29 May 2015

Can you please start a discussion on Portal_talk:Zh and work out a consensus there? Please do feel free to discuss in your native language. In the meantime, I would like to urge all of you to not revert and/or introduce more translations that involve the issue that's being discussed until a consensus has been reached. Please also remain civil (not that I get the impression civility is an issue right now); if you feel frustrated, it's a good thing to wait for a day and only then reply. In case you can not reach a decision, please us know here again, and we'll try to mediate. Is this something you can work with for now?

Siebrand10:02, 29 May 2015

Translate spending everybody a lot of time, especially keep keyword consistence. I don't know what is community consensus, If you guys think you can represent community, please prepare a list contain the keywords which is disputable, we can discuss. Do not like zhxy519, just revert some of my revision, it cannot solve the problem.

Cwlin0416 (talk)10:14, 29 May 2015

You don't know what is community consensus? OK w:zh:Wikipedia:共识

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)10:55, 29 May 2015

Also for "especially keep keyword consistence"

  1. [Citation needed]
  2. At least the "Sort by"s are translated as "Ordenar por:" en Español, but in Mantis:S sort label/es it's "Ordenado por:", likely in MediaWiki:Revcs-list-sort/es it's "Ordenar:"

Localisation for Eastern Cham language

Please enable localisation for Eastern Cham language:

  • cjm
  • Eastern Cham language - Cham Gah Pur
  • LTR
  • Eastern Cham Script - Arabic Cham Script - Latin Cham Script
  • MediaWiki: Vietnamese language
Si Gam Acèh (talk)05:35, 30 June 2014

Is there a translator for this language?

Can you confirm that this language should be enabled in the Eastern Cham Script?

What is the autonym for the language, written in the eastern Cham script?

Lloffiwr (talk)14:13, 7 August 2014

Incubator Wikipedia Eastern Cham is active now. The translator name is Inrawira. He masters all Cham scripts. The autonym for the language is Cham Gah Pur.

Si Gam Acèh (talk)17:18, 8 August 2014

If you want the main script to be Eastern Cham script then you need to provide the autonym in the Eastern Cham script.

Lloffiwr (talk)11:00, 10 August 2014

I have contacted the main contibutor of Cham Wikipedia Incubator. I hope we can wait for him a moment.

Si Gam Acèh (talk)00:03, 18 August 2014

The Eastern Cham test-wikipedia (incubator:Wp/cjm) is written in the latin script. Should translatewiki use another script?

Ebe123 (talk)19:33, 12 August 2014

Iirc, there's only one ISO 15924 for Cham script (just "cham").

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)06:53, 13 August 2014

Not my question. My question was whether to use latn or cham as script for the language.

I'm asking the main contributor to the test-wiki his opinion.

Ebe123 (talk)13:20, 17 August 2014

Support was added for Eastern Cham in the Latin script (cjm-latn).

Siebrand11:50, 25 May 2015

Shouldn’t this string say something like “Log in with Microsoft account” rather than referencing the dead “Windows Live” brand?

Fito (talk)15:42, 28 May 2015 and redirect to It doesn't look dead to me. Having said that, I know nothing about Microsoft services.

Macofe (talk)22:01, 28 May 2015

"nearby pages" → "topics of places nearby"

There are some related messages that need review of the use of "nearby" which should not refer to pages, but rather to their topic's places:

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)11:24, 28 May 2015

What is "Zero Devmode"?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)01:04, 27 May 2015

The development mode for Wikipedia Zero.

Why does Template:Doc-specialpagesummary say "ignored" about everything?

MediaWiki:Wantedpages-summary doesn't seem to be ignored.

Amir E. Aharoni (talk)12:40, 27 May 2015

Need GENDER parameter in the English original. "Enrolled" is "zapisany" when male and "zapisana" when feminine in Polish.

Halibutt (talk)10:32, 27 May 2015

Please provide message documentation.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)17:26, 26 May 2015

What precisely does "line wrapping" refer to, here? Automatic wrapping; rendering of existing line breaks in a data field; etc.?
