If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and find this site useful documentation of the MediaWiki software.

Flow question[edit]

Hi, I think you might have accidentally left out a link, or something, in your latest reply to our discussion at Whatever? Otherwise, you seem to be asking me to re-read what I wrote? (I did!). Thanks. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 00:18, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your help with preprocessor fixes![edit]

(More on this when this is all over...) I find the remark about ost/est slightly confusing - I think you mean "fix this because a closing hyphen is missing". I guess I'm looking for the easiest way to explain this, not just to people who aren't much techies, but also to those who do not speak much English, with examples. Like -{ost/est} WRONG: EDIT , and -{ost/est}- CORRECT: NO ACTION NEEDED . maybe without caps though :) --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 18:17, 11 May 2017 (UTC)

Yes that's correct. I am evolving the Edit Rules. This one is clear, while I was careful in language articles. I'll edit my (b)log.
Note: I write that log on the fly, it is fluent. Don't know if it is suitable for other editors who join in... For now, I don't think it useful to polish it for others (but people in the know can follow it, I saw). -DePiep (talk) 18:52, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
It's fine as it is, and I hope you don't mind if others use it. --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 08:26, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
Hi there! Did you maybe edit an older version of the page here? --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 10:51, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
Thanks a lot indeed. --Nemo 06:17, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
Ciao! Cscott made a new run here (context). I thought arwiki had been fixed, then re-read your note. I guess you didn't receive indications to be able to fix stuff there? TYVM. --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 10:07, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
