Small column widths on column headers
I'm not sure that I'm the best person to 'have developers be aware....' (seeing as it took a while to find out that UI means User Interface) but I'm willing to give it a go. Could you let me know which forum this should be raised in?
With regard to Centralnotice-number-uses I have had a look at some of the translations made before the constraint on length was noted. The prize for having the most letters chopped off goes to Dutch, with total characters and spaces of 21. There are quite a few languages not much shorter than 21. As a result of my quick survey, I can make one important recommendation. Everybody in the world should learn Italian, because its translation of this message has only 3 characters (although its not the only language with 3 characters for this message).
Until we've all learnt Italian....
Is it possible to make the developers aware of the specific problem with this message and ask them to fix it, either by adding a legend to this column header or some other method?
This is one of the widespread issues of MediaWiki we've not find any idea of solution for; where should it be tracked? We have issues even in critical pieces of MediaWiki like the Upload wizard...
P.s.: I've checked the Italian translation and it's even correct, kudos to the translator (lower quality translators would have used the more pompous "Utilizzazioni" which is 4 times longer and less correct).
Create bugzilla issues and add keywords "design" and "i18n" (because it's a design issue that impacts i18n).
