No translation units in translation?

Clump (talkcontribs)

An IP user made some translation edits to a couple of pages. They removed a fuzzy indicator, but also edited the translated text itself. There is, however, no translation unit shown in their contribution (or deleted contributions). Looking at one of the pages they edited, I can find the actual unit that was modified through the edit history of another editor of that page, but the unit's history does not match the page edit history---according to the page history Shirayuki restored the malformed variable translation, but in the unit history it shows Shirayuki's edit as (sort of) the opposite, and it also does not include the IP edits.

How did they perform those edits, and why is it not properly recorded in the unit history?

Thanks (and thanks too for fixing the translations). In this case though it looked like the user had managed to both confirm a translation and modify the contained text at the same time but still avoid any unit history updates---for example, in their edit to Magic words/ru, two fuzzy div's disappeared, but the text was also changed. The unfuzzing won't show up as a unit edit, why did the text change not show up as an edit in the unit history?

I am running a survey to find out how MediaWiki can be improved for the typical non-Wikimedia user. The survey was reviewed by several MWStake folks, who are also sharing it on their own platforms. Having a banner here on MediaWiki.org would be fantastic.

You can read more about the surveys on my company blog at https://professional.wiki/en/news/mediawiki-survey. Note that the surveys themselves are not branded in any way.

I'd like to run a banner that links to the surveys for a few days starting later this week and am posting here as a request for permission.

This seems like a reasonable idea to me; do others agree?

CKoerner (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I think this is fine. In my volunteer capacity I helped run a similar survey in 2015 regarding MediaWiki and would find it interesting to have updated information.

request for legitimate need of links for a mediawiki page

Thepainking (talkcontribs)

I was trying to publish my very first mediawiki page but a request to share a link keeps popping up. I'd like to request the links in my introduction page. It is very relevant to the topic being discussed and the resource is over 70 years old and part of a public domain. If there are additional criteria to approve the links then please do let me know as this is my first time using mediawiki. Thanks.

Your page is inappropriate for this wiki. Please see Project:About.

Dinoguy1000 (talkcontribs)

I can tell just from the title of the page you were trying to create that it would've been deleted as off-topic even if you'd been able to post it. This wiki is dedicated to the MediaWiki software, and is not the place to post articles on unrelated topics.

Thepainking (talkcontribs)

okay i was obviously confused for some reason lol. Thanks for the help. My page will obviously be deleted.

I've updated it. Actually, I've created that page, but it doesn't update the link in other languages, because this message apparently is provided by an extension, and all languages have its localized link. Looks like it needs to be changed somewhere else...

This works around the problem, not solves it.

Full-protecting Project:Current issues?

6
Dinoguy1000 (talkcontribs)

Does anyone know if full-protecting Project:Current issues will prevent non-admins from creating new topics on it? If so, is there any way to full-protect just the board description? This seems to be a spam/vandalism magnet.

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)
Dinoguy1000 (talkcontribs)

Aah, of course there's a Phab task for this. Thanks for the pointer!

Right, I didn't even think of abuse filters for this. I don't have much experience writing filters, so it'd probably be best for someone else to write one for this.

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

I've repurposed this filter that was affecting only Project:SupportDesk to also affect all namespaces other than user talk pages, since other boards are also target of this nonsense (help, project, and even categories)

Ата (talkcontribs)

This page was a subject to rewriting and is still marked as a draft. This discourages translators. Last edits on the page were in March; does anyone plan to continue writing this page?

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

Pinging @SUM1

As said in Topic:Vhhf32auldojenjp, if the page is to be rewritten, it shouldn't be marked for translation. However, if nobody is going to improve it in some days, I'd suggest to remove that draft template.

It looks very complete.

It seems to be a cache problem. See also this in private window.

আফতাবুজ্জামান (talkcontribs)

@Shirayuki I am still seeing this template in english.

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

I have nothing else to do.

আফতাবুজ্জামান (talkcontribs)

I just noticed {{int:lang}} gives me "en" and not "bn"! (test) I tried this on commons, meta & wikidata, on these site {{int:lang}} gives me correct result. How can i fix this?
