Thank you so much for properly tagging it for translation. I asked around in IRC / read the guide, and still had a bunch of questions, but your edit cleared it up. Thanks again!

Most of the "lint errors" I've seen you fixing have been good, thanks!

But in Special:Diff/2428490/prev I see you merely added slashes to void tags in a manner that was needed for XHTML but is no longer needed in HTML5 (see #6 here). I recommend not bothering with these additions, it clutters diffs for no purpose. (For that matter, there's also no reason to remove these slashes where they already exist.)

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

Special:LintErrors says <small> is missing. But I could not find it, so I added slashes for test.

You did not comment Your revert.

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

That should be "wherever you like in the page" not "link".

Manorainjan (talkcontribs)

Should I insert those translate tags myself whenever I edit the description, or is that the task of anybody special?

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

Do not add translate tags by yourself. Ask a translation administrator or Project:Requests to do.

I got my own wiki now.

So I got to read a lot of manual. ;-)

Rename of the Spec extension to Pickle

Summary by Shirayuki

YesY Done

Jeblad (talkcontribs)

Would it be possible for you to take a look on Move extension Spec to Pickle? It is on the Project:Support desk.

Samwilson (talkcontribs)

Are you in the middle of renaming the above? It seems a bit broken at the moment.

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

Thanks for pointing that out.

If they ever allow thanking people for logs actions, I will suggest that that fix is named in your honor.

Hey. I see you blocked 2601::/20 after a more specific IP block, but I have reverted it. On an IPv6 address, this is blocking something that amounts to an ISP's IP allocation -- far too restrictive. A /48 to /64 would be more appropriate.

Hey there, I just want to know why my userpage got deleted. I never created my user page (I think...). Or some guy was drunk and thought it would be a good idea to edit some page... I don't know anyway! Neither do I understand the log entry "Test page:Please use the sandbox". Like I said earlier, I never created my own user page.

Shirayuki (talkcontribs) requested to delete your user page and I thought the edit was not by you. Log in before editing your user page.

Yässinzeldafan (talkcontribs)

Erm, thanks! As I can see someone vandalized my page and it wasn't me at all. Well I think you can delete my user page, since trolls are following me (and I dont even care). Sorry for being a bother. The recent edit on my page was done by me (and it's my first [and only] one).

Can you offer help on translation?

Summary by HirnSpuk

Asked for help and got quick, straightforward, awesome response! Thanks a lot

HirnSpuk (talkcontribs)

Dear Shirayuki, I saw that you took care about my edits on Extension:Cite. Thanks a lot, so I was able to finish the translation. I want to use Links to these Sites from german Wikibooks, so not every bit has to be explained again and again. Now I want to translate Help:Cite, and I'm struggling with some difficulties. I browsed help and some other sites around here, but can't find answers for the things I'd like to know or do. Maybe you can offer help? It would be highly appreciated.

To the problem: I posted on Help talk:Cite a question a while ago, I'm confident enough about some parts of the question, to take care about it myself. E.g. editing the english page for some formating issues and for the translate-Tags. But another question arose: In the table error-messages are presented, that are probably to be translated by translatewiki, but at the moment, they seem not to. Does this mean, they are not translated yet? Or are they simply not displayed correctly? Or something else? I looked the error-messages up in some of the local (de) wikimedia projects, and they differ even there. Is it a good Idea to add translate-Tags for the messages and just add the actually used phrases (I suppose not)? Do you have any Idea, where I can look for help for this problem? E.g. first of all, I'd like to know how the translation in this case is (or should be) normally done.

As I said, any help will be highly appreciated. Thanks a lot, regards HirnSpuk

PS: I'm sorry, I wasn't able to find, how to sign the Message. Hope this will be done automatically. Edit: Well somehow it is... confusing...

HirnSpuk (talkcontribs)

Thanks! I think I understand, what you did there! If I can do anything to return the favor, let me know it. Regards, User:HirnSpuk

I believe a mixup occurred with Template:Delete. It now looks like Template:Speedy and categorizes pages it is used on in Category:Candidates for speedy deletion, as can be seen here: Template:API link.

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

YesY Done, thanks.
