Does it work?

Nike (talk)20:55, 1 May 2015

Huh, required not to what?!

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)07:38, 1 May 2015

... not to exist.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)08:32, 1 May 2015

When I edit this page, I don't see the regular "Message in other languages", "Suggestions from translation memories and machine translation", "Information about message (contribute)" and "Message definition" boxes. I also don't see the "In other languages" link on the sidebar, and if I go to Special:Translations/MediaWiki:Group-oversight-member, it says ""MediaWiki:Group-oversight-member" is not a translatable message". But I can see this message listed here. Why is that?

Opraco (talk)00:53, 27 April 2015

There is a chance that this message is local to the Portuguese Wikipedia only. it could be a leftover from older such page names that have been renamed or moved, but I did not investigate. You can either edit it in the Wikipedia, or request its deletion there, or leave it as it is. Which option is your best choice depends. If you want to follow the issue, find out what use the Wikipedia makes of it, if any at all.

By Oversighter group, it's de facto at Group-suppress-member ("oversight").

However as However, why on earth the Oversighters in Special:Listusers are still under Group-oversight-member ("MediaWiki:Group-oversight-member/en-gb"), e.g. [1]

Aligning this and also the title in MediaWiki:Mobile-frontend-editor-editing-page/et is somewhat tricky. How do I get all words in title left aligned, not like it currently displays here ("redigeerimine" on the right)? I already tried to do something with span tags position, but apparently this was of no help. I see other languages also having problem with it if they don't use the same word order that English does.

Pikne08:44, 22 April 2015

The problem is, that, on small displays e.g., the title of the page is truncated with three dots. So, the problem is, that the truncated text part (the page title) needs a automatic width, so the part takes as many space as possible, which results in this behavior :/

Would it be possible for you to reword this text, that the "Edit" part is the first and the "$1" the second one?
Forgot this, that shouldn't be needed at all, we need to find a better solution on our side :)

This bug is tracked with task phabricator:T97275.

Btw: Sorry for my late response!

Florian (talk)10:30, 27 April 2015

The change to fix this problem was merged yesterday. It will take some time to sync's en.json, and after that you should be able to convert et too :)

Florian (talk)05:40, 29 April 2015

Editing title looks good now. Thank you.

MediaWiki:Mobile-frontend-editor-previewing-page/en would also benefit from the same sort of change.

Pikne05:52, 1 May 2015

"UNable" → "Unable"

Btw. Wanting to quickly fix this myself I tried to find out where in the source code the typo is, in vain. Is there an easy way to determine this - other than guessing from various circumstances?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)13:48, 26 April 2015

Diffusion grep finds it.

Nemo (talk)13:55, 26 April 2015

That does not lead me to a command downloading the source from git/gerrit. :-(

Gender support?

Geraki (talk)14:13, 29 April 2015

Needs PLURAL support on the number of items in the list. See mw:I18n#Pass the number of list items as parameters to messages talking about lists.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)13:27, 27 April 2015

Wording is too sloppy.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)23:10, 26 April 2015


Can we delete this page. I created it accidentally.

Mavrikant (talk)15:20, 26 April 2015

How can a single file contain “information on more than one file”? Unless I’m missing something (due to my lack of knowledge of file systems), a file is one file. It seems to me that this message is poorly written, but I could be wrong.

Fito (talk)13:10, 26 April 2015

Why is the language code quoted and the entity ID is not quoted? This does not appear consistent.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)11:05, 26 April 2015

What is meant: "a page" or "pages in general"?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)09:53, 25 April 2015

I'm afraid this can't be translated safely. Each archive pages are having different styles, though some are more or less the same.

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)00:16, 25 April 2015

Please commit special page aliases for Latin language (la)

Please commit translations for la - Latin (Latina). special page aliases Thank you!

UV (talk)22:09, 24 April 2015

why is this one flagged as 'might be outdated'?

MPlauche (talk)18:46, 24 April 2015

I'm wondering if '$1' shouldn't appear AFTER 'description', in a language like French that places most Adjectives and modifying nouns AFTER main nouns.

So is $1 a 'NEW description', 'a PREVIOUS description', 'a HOUSE description'  ? or is $1 a '1. description' or something else that might preserve this word order?

Thanks, Madelaine

MPlauche (talk)16:47, 24 April 2015

Line You can paste the following {{PLURAL:$5|line|lines}} into <code>LocalSettings.php</code> to enable {{PLURAL:$5|the|all}} currently installed {{PLURAL:$5|skin|skins}}: should have second and third instance of $5 (reference to lines) replaced with $4 (reference to skins).

Domen (talk)21:10, 11 April 2015

Well, I do not thinks so, since the count $4 includes skins already enabled, which are not listed in $3 and not counted in $5. Thus it would be imho more advisable to reword the sentence to say:

"… to enable {{PLURAL:$5|the|all}} remaining currently installed …"

What do you think?

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)07:54, 20 April 2015

Oh, I was not aware that $4 counts only enabled skins, so parametres are all right. But rewording would make things clearer, I agree.
