{{Screencast requested}} is needed when a newbie cannot understand long and long lines of text.

Take into account than some pages are also for Wikipedia and other sister projects and its newbies.

I need a screencast sometime to understand how to use some features of MediaWiki, employed also in Wikipedia and other projects.

Clump (talkcontribs)

If it's actually somehow likely someone might actually create a screencast for a specific page it may make sense, but otherwise, which I suspect is most cases, peppering pages with that will just be annoying. Please avoid creating 1-item categories.

The category, as in Wikipedia, is for the page where people asked for screenshots, screencast and similar . How can I ask for a screencast in the help:notifications or similar name page?. BoldLuis (talk) 22:08, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

On wikipedia that project seems to have never really gone anywhere, with little activity since 2010. You seem to have figured out a way to ask here.

BoldLuis (talkcontribs)

Do not worry. A Mediawiki:Helper that said to me that is going to do his best to create a screencast video about the topic for newbies. BoldLuis (talk) 22:08, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

I fail to see how a broken edit to an (effectively) undocumented template on another wiki was an improvement.

BoldLuis (talkcontribs)

Documentation can be done using {{Wikipedia doc}} (soon global template documentation is going to be more usual). It links to a page where you can find the word and understand how it is used. It could be improved. But before any effort. Are you ready for change to improve Mediawiki?. I could do my best (and you also). BoldLuis (talk) 22:13, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

Just copy the documentation from Wikipedia (and, from my experience, remove paragraphs of Wikipedia-specific information) instead of directing users to another wiki.

BoldLuis (talkcontribs)

I would prefer to use a global template. Easier, more useful and quicklier. If the user accounts are global, user templates woud be global, also.

Стоит Ваша защита на странице. Хотел перевести на русский, сейчас русская версия страницы соскальзывает снова на англоязычную. Как лучше сделать?

Hi. I'm just interested, why did you delete this topic, it looked me very legit? Thank you.

Clump (talkcontribs)

Hi. Yes, on retrospect I was perhaps too quick to do that---I couldn't make sense of the title, and it is structurally the same as a lot of spam that comes in with little more than a nonsense title and an edit-link. I will restore it; sorry.

IKhitron (talkcontribs)

Thanks a lot. The sense is "Why can't I find some gadget in Editor 2017, I'm used to this gadget in Editor 2010".

Clump (talkcontribs)

Oh, that was a gadget---ha, thanks, that makes a lot more sense. :)
