Hi, I undid your edit to eval.php marking it as outdated. What outdated content do you see on that page? The is significantly less useful than the wiki page. Legoktm (talk) 22:23, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

Sorry about the wrong modification. I thought it was a more up to date description, because the task that i am doing says that if the description on is different than on, is often more up to date and that's why i marked that page as outdated. IoannisKydonis (talk) 15:27, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

Outdated notice[edit]

Hi. I think {{TNT|Outdated|reason=For more complete information... should be in Template:MW file or another template. How do you think? --Shirayuki (talk) 13:56, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

Hello. I agree with you. It would be better if the outdated message was inside Template:MW file. IoannisKydonis (talk) 15:45, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

Marking for translation[edit]

Please pay attention to Shirayuki's corrections:

  • strings which should have been made translatables were not enclosed in translate tags;
  • untranslatable markup ended up being in translate tags, especially the table separators and I think some ref tag.

Next time you will do even better. ;-) Nemo 10:36, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

Translation memory[edit]

By the way, do you ever see suggestions from the translation memory? I see them in Firefox but not in Chromium and I've not debugged why yet. Nemo 10:09, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

Yes, i'm using Chrome and i get suggestions. IoannisKydonis 12ː25, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. Must be something wrong with my other account or browser extensions then. :) Nemo 12:48, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

Next pages[edit]

You have been great with Help:Tables, which by the way has thousands of visits per month. If you want to continue, I have a great project idea for you: you could convert Manual:FAQ! That's the single most important page on this wiki, perhaps; if you manage to convert it, you will be remembered for years. :) I estimate between 5k and 15k edits will be needed and I already created 10 more GCI tasks for you to claim, which should be enough to complete the job. Nemo 16:32, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

I will start working on this project now ː) IoannisKydonis 17:48, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
Oh, you already marked the page. :-O The units look decent but there is much more to do: internal links should use Special:MyLanguage, many links and untranslatable things should use tvar, etc. Now you must be fast migrating the old translations, otherwise thousands of users will see English instead of the translated text they wanted and had! :) Nemo 08:44, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
I have just migrated japanese. But for some languages (for example German) there is very little content in order to migrate... IoannisKydonis 9:1, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
Yes that's fine, just try to find a home for every paragraph of the old translations so that nothing is lost. If you update the source page, make sure to mark the page for translation again with the checkboxes "do not invalidate translations", or FuzzyBot will revert all the migration work you are doing! Also, I've tested Special:PageMigration and with some of the pages it's usable, you may want to try it. Nemo 09:07, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
Ok, I will give it a try. IoannisKydonis 9:17, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

Some interesting pages to migrate, which will need some additional work (I'll count that too, not only numbers of units):

Thanks! Nemo 11:43, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for starting already. :) For the next pages, please wait a few hours or a day after you prepared them before you mark them for translation, so that other translation admins can give a look too. :-) Nemo 14:32, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
Ok, i will. IoannisKydonis 14:35, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
Happy new yearǃ I have tagged and migrated Manual:Using custom namespaces. Now i tagged Manual:User rights, but i didn't understand what you want me to do except for migrating. IoannisKydonis 17:30, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
Happy new year to you too. I mean that it would be useful to use the int magic word like this. Other pages you may consider are Manual:Extensions, Manual:Image administration, Manual:Installation requirements, Manual:Configuring file uploads. As usual, wait some hours between preparing and marking, so that others have a chance to make edits. Nemo 11:04, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Are you going to create more "Make MediaWiki documentation translatable" tasks? IoannisKydonis 17:34, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

Marking page for translation[edit]

Please do not mark incomplete pages for translation. --Shirayuki (talk) 11:07, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

Ok. Sorry about that. --IoannisKydonis (talk) 11:14, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

See Special:Diff/1999730 and Special:Diff/2000836. Please fix them all.--Shirayuki (talk) 23:29, 10 January 2016 (UTC)

Did it. --IoannisKydonis (talk) 17:46, 11 January 2016 (UTC)
Remove leading whitespace from each translation unit. Special:Diff/1999730 --Shirayuki (talk) 12:48, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
I did it. --IoannisKydonis (talk) 15:06, 14 January 2016 (UTC)
Reverted. Edit the latest revision. You are editing an old revision. --Shirayuki (talk) 06:05, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

PHP7 task[edit]

Hi, because you are looking for tasks I got a new mentor to add one, which should be rather interesting: Make Translate extension compatible with PHP 7 I hope you like it, Nemo 16:29, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Hello, i will claim that one after the current. Thank youǃ ː) IoannisKydonis 18:06, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
