If you continue to destroy my work unjustly... Then you can do the dirt yourself! At least give reasons...

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

Your trivial edit will invalidate the existing translations. The workaround for this is time-consuming, so I have reverted it.

Justman10000 (talkcontribs)

I don't understand... One can simply change strings, the extension detects that and re-registers them? Doesn't it do that?

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

By marking your edit for translation, the existing translations will be invalidated. You should respect the existing translations.

Justman10000 (talkcontribs)

I'm sorry, but are you kidding me? Surely the community has put work into their translations, what probably no one believes to know better than me! But to destroy MY work again, only because then existing translations are invalid...

God, that is sense and purpose of the thing! Otherwise this possibility would not exist at all! And if one goes after it, NO spelling, grammar and language errors should be corrected! There are errors in the strings, there is sometimes a word misspelled, a word was forgotten, then sometimes the formatting is wrong... This should be corrected, of course...

People know or should know that their translations then become invalid! Besides, it's not like that's the case on numerous other wiki pages here (cough, cough, irony, cough)...

Sorry, but if you really stick to it...

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

What are you talking about? What is so important about this edit?

Justman10000 (talkcontribs)

Well, admittedly, it's something to argue about.... But let's be honest... It looks like crap in the source code!

Moreover, there is an option, where the hook can removed... This has the consequence that existing translations are not declared invalid or obsolete...

Justman10000 (talkcontribs)

And... Really? @Clump you too? Like i said... I can also gladly stop my work, I do not care! However, you would then have to regulate everything alone, as far as the German translations are concerned...

Clump (talkcontribs)

The html generated by wikitext with or without spaces before/after the heading markup is the same. Please do not keep changing it just to reflect your personal style.

Justman10000 (talkcontribs)

As mentioned before, it looks like crap in the source code and translation.

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

Someone once told me that a person who does not respect the existing translations is not suited to be a translation administrator.

Justman10000 (talkcontribs)

Sorry, but should I explain it again in Turkish? Or Ukrainian? I have already explained it once...

may I ask you a couple of things, please?

  1. Could you activate BOT for edit I did in the section Troubleshooting?
  2. It seems some parts inside the section T:23 are not marked for translation

thanks a lot

have you a nice day

Hi, wanted to ask what your opinion is about my request.... The rights would be quite practical!

You keep cancelling my translation tags insertion on this page: could you at least tell me what's wrong with my edits?
Furthermore, in this case, you cancelled most of my tags insertion... to just reinsert them after (here and here)? I do not understand why you removed them on the first place, please enlighten me.

Epok (talkcontribs)

What a good answer, thank you very much for your help! (Joke) I come here to understand, you tell me to check by myself... very useful, a good way of helping people in a collaborative project, really.
I come again with my original questions: why did you have to revert my edits, then reintroduce must of them? I see you version is quite different from mine, but my questions were: "what's wrong with my edits?" and "why did you cancelled most of my tags insertion to just reinsert them after?" impl: couldn't you just improve my version?

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

I saw your user rights. You are not a translation administrator. Please do not add translate tags.

Epok (talkcontribs)

I do not understand: translation administrators are the ones who mark pages for translation, no? Anyone can add translate tags... You even have to add some at one moment to prove you can do it and request translation administrator rights: how can you do it if you are not allowed to add translation tags?

If any translation administrator had done it on this page which was long waiting for it, I wouldn't have to add them myself, but the fact is no one did it. I went here to have some advice to improve my edits and understand yours, but you're really not helping.

Epok (talkcontribs)

Actually this page tells the opposite as you're telling. Anyone which understand the translation process can follow the tutorial and proceed to add translate tags.

Translation administrators are required for marking the page for translation, checking that the work had been done correctly, but adding translate tags is not their reserved right.

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

Wrong markup should be removed before other translation administrator mark the page for translation as is. This is the direct reason for the revert.

Epok (talkcontribs)

Thank you for finally agreeing to explain the reason. I would also have hopped for a few hints to improve my edits (except for the tvar naming "url" instead of a number, I frankly do not see what I did wrong in terms of translation tags), but I'm not sure I will have some, so I will stop bothering you.

Have a good day.

Good day, my questions is where is our Admistrators in hausa Wiktionary, because there are many articles that deserves to be deleted and other things, but nobody for there.

For information, the <source> tag is deprecated and it should be used <syntaxhighlight> instead (only the name changes, the semantics remain identical). I saw you added recently this tag here, so I guess you are not aware of this deprecation (which is tracked by a tracking category).

Best support channel for Wikipedia API?

Julkhami (talkcontribs)

What is the most active channel where users and developers of the API are available?

I tried the sample for using extracts on the page Pet door, it returns correctly for Wikipedia but not for a WikiSource page. Why is that?

Could you please provide a sample of extracting WikiSource text via the API?

I would want to translate the whole page, but not all of the text is available for translation. Could you make it so all of the page (aside from the system messages) can be translated?

Just thought I would mention! Thanks for all the help with translation admin.

I'm seeing a lot of created pages edit summaries, but the page wasn't even created with those contents. Are they faking it or am I getting something wrong?
