§Edit request[edit | edit source]

Hi, Whatamidoing. Would you kindly read Talk:VisualEditor/Portal/ja and help me to modify the page? Thanks.--miya (talk) 05:46, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

I have replied there. I think it is fixed now. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 14:26, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

§Re: A barnstar for you![edit | edit source]

Oh, thank you, that's nice. I have expected no expressed appreciation. Just doing my work ;) Tar Lócesilion|queta! 22:19, 11 July 2013 (UTC)

Another info. I didn't introduce myself and now is a proper moment. On the Polish Wikipedia, I coordinate all of metastuff (as I described on my user page) so I believe we'll collaborate. But now, I have to go offline for a few days and I won't be keeping my eye on VE pl.translating/lauching/proper namespaces/you know/and so on — so if you want to contact somebody interested, experienced and knowledgeable from plwiki with VE stuff, I suggest Matma Rex and PMG (our technicians) and Maire (translates into Polish). At the moment we 4 (or — in a few hours — they 3) can help and want to. As you know, an important thing is importing translated pages from mw to pl regularly — which, unfortunately, I cannot do (damn, I need more rights :P). So I have a question: who can we ask for import it except you? The Stewards? Tar Lócesilion|queta! 14:02, 12 July 2013 (UTC)
Unexpectedly, I'm back earlier. You're right, the translation is in PD, so I can copy and paste it and there's no problem with import right (yes, plwiki admins have it). Tar Lócesilion|queta! 11:31, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

§Re: Urgent small translation[edit | edit source]

'Done' and 'at your service' :) Tar Lócesilion|queta! 18:31, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

Thank you! If pl.wikipedia really is on the list now, then those banners will be visible over there later today. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:37, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for this info, it's obviously very important and very interesting ;) In summer, it's so sleepy on our project—many of us go offline or at least take a Wikibreak. I have brought the news (indeed, we have many communication paths) and I hope that most of us will read it and everything will be ok, after all :) Tar Lócesilion|queta! 20:05, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

§Re: Progress[edit | edit source]

Yes, I like it :) I've also noticed your page before :) I care about the translation, because I realize that the whole documentation must be translated not only before VE is launched, but as soon as possible—in order to provide complete information for those who are clicking on the CentralNotice banner even right now. Imho Wikipedia must be most reliable ;) Tar Lócesilion|queta! 21:05, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

§Hi[edit | edit source]

You took my name of the RFC list on English Wikipedia. Can you restore it please, and if possible add the missing RFC notifications to may talk page? Thank you. RFC watcher (talk) 20:55, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

You can do it yourself.
I am curious why a person who never comments on any of them actually wants people to ask him for his comments, though. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 21:05, 25 July 2013 (UTC)
Of course were I able to do it myself I would do so. I only asked for your help because it was needed. As to your curiosity, application of a little thought will doubtless satisfy you. RFC watcher (talk) 18:17, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
You are able to do it. The page is not protected. Anyone can edit that page. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 23:50, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

§Media Viewer: German translation[edit | edit source]

Hi, you commented on my little issue with the German translation "In Vollbild anzeigen" in Media Viewer and suggested, to remove the preposition to make it "Vollbild anzeigen", in case nobody would mind. But the section with the suggestion has now been archived. I thought, I remind you of the matter here, so it doesn't get lost. --Miss-Sophie (talk) 22:40, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, Miss-Sophie. I've made the change. I don't know when it will reach the wikis, but I believe it's usually about one day. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 15:22, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
Danke! :-) --Miss-Sophie (talk) 17:59, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
Miss-Sophie, A translator at TWN has changed it to "Im Vollbildmodus anzeigen", which is an option that we hadn't previously discussed. I don't know what you think of that. I've left a note for the translator. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:49, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Heiya, once again thank for your pointer. I reverted back to the previous version of the translation hopefully before the scheduled translations update to the repo. Thus this would remain just at twn. "Im Vollbildmodus anzeigen" may perhaps be to technical for some tastes so I am fine with other translations, too. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 19:35, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
I would have been fine with that version, too. If you read our discussion again, you'll find, that I had actually suggested "Im Vollbildmodus anzeigen" as an alternative, too :-) . I don't prefer one or the other, as long as it's not "In Vollbild anzeigen". --Miss-Sophie (talk) 23:18, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
I forgot about that; I'm sorry. Kgh, I'm okay with anything that makes both of you happy. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 00:15, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
I am not absolutely happy with the current solution, but what I did yesterday is not best of breed either. After more thinking I came up with the pair "Vollbildanzeige aktivieren" and "Vollbildanzeige deaktivieren". Since this is going to end up in Popups for informatory purposes this appears to me a good one. Miss-Sophie? --[[kgh]] (talk) 13:16, 18 July 2014 (UTC) PS Indeed "In Vollbild anzeigen" is no good.
I don't like the word "Vollbildanzeige". Better "Vollbildansicht aktivieren/deaktivieren"? --Miss-Sophie (talk) 20:52, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, that's even better. Cool, I believe we should go for this pair. :) --[[kgh]] (talk) 20:06, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for making that update, User:Kghbln. You and Miss-Sophie make a great pair. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 21:50, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your effort to make us liaise. --[[kgh]] (talk) 07:30, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Looks nice with "Vollbildansicht aktivieren", User:Kghbln, thanks. Would be even better, if one could actually also see the opposite (for deactivating) on mouseover (I complained about this and they opened a bug report, but grudgingly; it seems, there are too many larger problems right now or they consider it unimportant.) --Miss-Sophie (talk) 22:14, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
Perfection is always possible. Good that we found ours here. :) MediaViewer is already a great improvement but basically just "2 months" old. So I expect heaps of changes anyway. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 08:03, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
