I give you this for your great dedication to this project :)

Kindly explain why you rolled back [[Special:Diff/3274666|this edit]] of a translation. Rolling back good faith edits without an edit summary discourages new editors and creates an impression of exclusive ownership contrary to the wiki philosophy. Perhaps I violated an accepted practice on this wiki? I rarely edit here so I'm unfamiliar with such practices, but I saw no rules or instructions guiding editors. As it stands now, however, the translation is inaccurate (though not in any major way). Some of my edits were merely stylistic choices, I admit, but at least two idiomatic expressions are translated literally, yielding awkward English with an unclear meaning. Those changes, at least, should have stood. Unconventional (talk) 12:09, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi. The language changes seemed quite arbitrary---mainly, and merely, a change for change's sake, which that page/translation does not require. Your edit summary did not include any indication of improving a translation, and the original text is not unclear. Still, if there are actual translation problems feel free to fix them.

Unconventional (talkcontribs)

Thank you. I will indeed make some of my edits again, with a more explicit edit summary, because there are grammatical and usage errors in the English, and also because idiomatic expressions should be translated idiomatically, not literally. It seems evident to me that the translator was more familiar with Spanish idioms than English ones.

Thanks for all of your work in patrolling edits and hiding spam here on mediawiki.org.

Happy to help; thanks for the goat. :)

I was trying to illustrate the Jubilee Greenway for the associated Wikipedia article and experimenting with GeoJSON data under the Sandbox/username namespace as suggested by Help:Map Data -- am I really out of project scope?

Clump (talkcontribs)

My understanding is that you should do that in Wikimedia Commons, not here. If you need it restored to copy it over let me know.

Phorque (talkcontribs)

Ah my bad, I'll head over there.

This image I found has been uploaded for some time and has not been used on any pages. It also appears to be out of the project scope. The link is right here File:Tab error.png. Maybe we should delete the file? Thanks.

Clump (talkcontribs)

It is actually used in a support discussion. I'm not sure why the "File usage" section shows nothing, perhaps something to do with how flow arranges content.

Examknow (talkcontribs)

Okay. Then we probably should not delete it. Thank you for your quick response.

Examknow (talkcontribs)

I noticed the same problem with other files. This only happens when people put the files in support discussions such as the support desk and user talk pages. That is why the file is showing up as unused.
