Urdu Wikipedia (Latin numbers & Short URL for pages)

Hi James,

It was a pleasure meeting you at Wikimania 2016.

As discussed with you, please ensure that Urdu Wikipedia pages get short URL codes in English similar to what is available for Hindi Wikipedia.

Also, please make latin numbers (1,2,3) default for Urdu Wikipedia.

In case if you would like to further discuss this, please post a message on my Urdu Wikipedia talkpage.

Umpteen thanks in advance.

Hey there.

The first request was filed during the conference as T138507. I'll get it done soon.

For the second request, I'm not sure I understand. Numbers in references are already Latin, as are the ones on e.g. Special:Statistics. Am I missing something?

As probably you might remember during our meeting at Wikimania, for the phonetic font, when I type 1,2,3, I am getring ۱،۲،۳. We don't want this. We prefer 1,2,3 numerals.

Aha, yes, that was T138399. I will talk to the Language team about that one too.
