Betawiki: better support for your language in MediaWiki[ᓱᖁᓯᖅᐹ ᐃᓚ]

Dear community. I am writing to you to promote a special wiki called Betawiki. This wiki facilitates the localisation (l10n) of the MediaWiki interface. You may have changed many messages here to use your language in the interface, but if you would log in to for example the English language Wiktionary, you would not be able to use the interface as well translated as here. Infact, of the 1798 messages in the core of MediaWiki, 0 messages have been translated. Betawiki also supports the translation of messages of almost 80 extensions, with about 1050 messages.

If you wish to contribute to better support of your language in MediaWiki, as well as for many MediaWiki extensions, please visit Betawiki, create an account and request translator priviledges. You can see the current status of localisation of your language on meta and do not forget to get in touch with others that may already be working on your language on Betawiki.

If you have any further questions, please let me know on my talk page on Betawiki. We will try and assist you as much as possible, for example by importing all messages from a local wiki for you to start with, if you so desire.

You can also find us on the Freenode IRC network in the channel #mediawiki-i18n where we would be happy to help you get started.

Thank you very much for your attention and I do hope to see some of you on Betawiki soon! Cheers! Siebrand@Betawiki 15:35, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Request for closure[ᓱᖁᓯᖅᐹ ᐃᓚ]

I am requesting that this wiki is closed because what I see is pretty much english and there is little articles compaired to other wikipedias. Ebe123 15:33, 1 ᔪᓚᐃ 2011 (UTC)

IMPORTANT: Admin activity review[ᓱᖁᓯᖅᐹ ᐃᓚ]

Hello. A new policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc) was recently adopted by global community consensus (your community received a notice about the discussion). According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing administrators' activity on smaller wikis. To the best of our knowledge, your wiki does not have a formal process for removing "advanced rights" from inactive accounts. This means that the stewards will take care of this according to the new admin activity review here.

We have determined that the following users meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no log actions for more than 2 years):

  1. ᐃᖁᐆᕐ (bureaucrat, administrator)
  2. ᑏᑎᕉ (bureaucrat, administrator)

These users will receive a notification soon, asking them to start a community discussion if they want to retain some or all of their rights. If the users do not respond, then their advanced rights will be removed by the stewards.

However, if you as a community would like to create your own activity review process superseding the global one, want to make another decision about these inactive rights holders, or already have a policy that we missed, then please notify the stewards on Meta-Wiki so that we know not to proceed with the rights review on your wiki.

Language converter change[ᓱᖁᓯᖅᐹ ᐃᓚ]


LanguageConverter (LC), used to switch from one language to an other, has a problem: links using LanguageConverter with a wrong syntax do not show up properly on Special:LinkSearch.

If you want to use LC for an external link, a new syntax must be used:

Old syntax (examples for Chinese languages): http://-{zh-cn:foo.com; zh-hk:bar.com; zh-tw:baz.com}-

New syntax: -{zh-cn: http://foo.com ; zh-hk: http://bar.com ; zh-tw:http://baz.com }-

The space before }- is really important.

If you use the old syntax, links will break.

Please spread the word and update your local documentation! If you have any question, please ping me or Bawolff.

Thanks, Trizek (WMF) (talk) 17:25, 29 ᓯᑎᒻᐳᕆ 2016 (UTC)
