I see you don't approve of my proposition for categories of extensions. Let me epxlain my rationale to you:

Before my intervention, the category:Random page contained an amalgamation of topics about "randomness" and extensions that selected/presented random pages.

What I'm trying to do is group extensions that select pages randomly under category:random page extensions, which already existed but was not comprehensive, as well as cross-referencing this category with category:Random content extensions.

I think this is more logical and structured. Don't you think so?

See the latest edit(s) by me. Please do not remove {{#translation:}}. Thanks.

أحمد (talkcontribs)

I have seen your edits. That's why I'm writing you.

If it is translation that is your concern, then do you could have re-instated it into the new category?

I would like to know your exact concern: is it the translation tag or the methodolgy of categorisation?

I'd also like to know whether adding this template to the name of the new category I'm proposing would work as you expect?


Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

To notify wrong categorization instantly. Thanks for your work.

I have marked the latter one for translation.

Could you mark the former for translation?

Could you mark Help:Pickle/Glossary for translation? I've changed use of a keyword at TranslateWiki, and the qqq-messages points to the glossary.

here should have a reason given. I was trying to link to a page that actually holds the message instead of one that yells a big "This page has been deleted." at my head. I now saw that the system message is also shown below the big red "was deleted" box on the page that was linked there before my edit. So I *guess* you prefer to link to the local one instead of the one on translatewiki. Anyway, it would be nice if you would asssume good faith and spend the time to give a reason when reverting something that's not just obvious vandalism. Thanks. :)

here should have a reason given :) The revert was to tell readers that the message can be modified locally.

Touché ;)

Extension:Scribunto/Lua reference manualについての提案

ツバル (talkcontribs)

久しぶりに、[[Extension:Scribunto/Lua reference manual]]の状況を見たのですが、4ヶ月ほど以前の状況とほとんど変化がなく、新たに翻訳できる箇所も増えていないようです。Shirayukiさんの活動履歴を見ると他の編集はしておられるので、活動を停止しておられるわけではなく、Extension:Scribunto/Lua reference manualについて作業をされる時間的余裕がないということだと思います。そこで提案なのですが、一旦この記事の翻訳指定(のようなもの)を解除していただけませんでしょうか。MediaWikiの技術的なことはよくわからないのですが、解除すれば他のtranslation administratorがShirayukiさんに代わって作業されるようにも思えますし、セクションごとに分割した形での翻訳はできなくても、手作業で翻訳することはできるようになるのかもしれません。よろしくご検討ください。--ツバル (talk) 03:16, 21 May 2017 (UTC)

Did some updates (major rewrite) and perhaps I should do a first shot on translating Help:Pickle. Better that I wast time on finding the errors than other wasting time on them!

I posted same message on @Mainframe98, should only be necessary that one of you do this… ;)

Draft pages should not be marked for translation.

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!
