Please document this message.

Current documentation says: "Used for saying add to spam blacklist."

But the message says: "Adding to Spam Blacklist"

So what is true? Where is the message used? What is its purpose?

Is this a to be translated as a continuous form?

Please mass-delete vandalism by User:Esketti

Please mass-delete all contributions by User:Esketti. They vandalised the nl and en-gb translations with several thousands of automated and thus generally wrong translations, up to 10 per minute, back in May and June. Correcting all this would be more work than simply redoing them.

McDutchie (talk)16:17, 31 July 2015

Deletion has no effect on translations: right now, removing those translations would require over 160 commits to as many MediaWiki repositories. It's a pity we were not warned when this was found out on June 2, we could have still done something.

You could file a feature request asking for deletions on the wiki to be exported to the repository as well and explaining why it's important. I'm told it would take a day of work + something, which is definitely less than the time required to revert Esketti. Otherwise, there is the option of re-translating, which may take less time in this case but of course doesn't help for future ones.

I believe "gziped" should be spelled "gzipped"

A message on Main page

Dont see it in the aggregate group not by uselang=qqx and too lazy to dig: 1 Translations/month. Should be 1 translation/month. Wrong for Ukrainian too but the problem is rooted obviously as deep as on English level.

Basetalkcontributions13:26, 28 July 2015

Here is the message MediaWiki:Twnmp-translations-per-month/en.

Macofe (talk)15:15, 28 July 2015

Cool, thanks. Can someone add plural support to it? P.S. a side question: where do I find that ranking of translators to a language it shows my position in? It's rather a curios thing for competitive purposes.

Basetalkcontributions20:15, 31 July 2015

You can use plural on parameter $1 already, it's just not documented yet. Also, the full ranking is not available.

Nike (talk)20:26, 31 July 2015

I expanded the documentation. Trying to use PLURAL, I get "Parameter $1 is unknown", however.

British English in Mediawiki messages

Mediawiki prefers American English. I've just found a couple of British words (see below). I don't know about the other projects here.

There are many words to check (see for example here or here). Before doing that, does anyone at Mediawiki care about this?

Macofe (talk)22:31, 31 July 2015

This is a lego piece, so shouldn't end in a full stop.

It also uses unnecessary jargon ("use the MobileFrontend-specific upload system"). Suggest changing this to "use the mobile upload system".

Please provide links to the source code, and the internationalisation of it. Please also give an indication of the popularity of the game.

Siebrand15:39, 8 April 2014

Sorry for the delay. [1] - here is link to the source code of the last release; "Internationalisation" is done via ~42 txt files; I think I will have to add them here manually, if there is more convinient way - please link me.

"indication of the popularity of the game" - you can see monitor it here: [2] - now it is terribly low = 5 downloads, but I'm going to advertise it on - after that popularity may jump to 500. My other (temporary abandoned) project [3] download summary (8435 per 3 years, +400 jump after describing it on

Sergej.Privalov (talk)10:59, 4 May 2014

Please use a supported format.

Nemo (talk)08:14, 13 July 2014

Sorry for big delay. [1] - here is link to the source code of the last release. In that zip file please watch "\FloodFiller\res\txt\strings\XML_strings\" folder, now there are two files: "" and "", please tell me, is their format fit, or do I have to fix something. Later I'm goung to add other languages translation files.

Update: [2] - here is link to the source code of the last release last version. In that zip file please watch "\FloodFiller\res\txt\strings\XML_strings\" folder, now there are 42 files: "", "", and so on. Please tell me, is their format fit, or do I have to fix something?

Sergej.Privalov (talk)01:13, 7 November 2014

Don't you have direct links to the localisation files? We can't do much with a ZIP.

Nemo (talk)07:27, 12 November 2014

Parameter check is incorrect. Should accept $2,$3 as replacement for $1.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)18:06, 29 July 2015

GENDER support on $1 needed.

Purodha Blissenbach (talk)14:30, 29 July 2015

Needs PLURAL support on the word "comments" - it may be different for other languages, but Colognian needs the maximum of the number of exiting comments for all posts.
