Community Insights Survey
This does not matter much to me, just wanted to notify you.
The link [[:sv:whatever]] is not well-defined. It is a link to Swedish version of the mw-project. [[w:sv:whatever]] is a link to the Swedish version of Wikipedia. I never use the first version except when linking to language specific versions of the same project, even if the form works on some (mw) projects.
You should never break the user expectations, but some devs are not very good at following user expectations. The page Special:Interwiki is a study in how to break them! Take a look at the definitions for Wiktionary and Wikiversity for example. =)
But other than that; not sure why I but the additional link inside the marker.
[[w:sv:whatever]] is a link to the English Wikipedia and it is redirected to the Swedish Wikipedia.
[[:sv:whatever]] goes to Swedish Wikipedia directly.
I believe this is not well-defined behavior, it is an assumption about referring to Wikipedia.
Translated categories deleted
I noticed that you deleted many translated-into-Arabic categories as they were empty. Is there an official policy concerning empty categories? If yes, can you share it with me? Please note that these deleted categories were not empty because there was no content for them, but rather because there was content for them but not yet translated.
No, but please do NOT create empty categories.
Mark for translation
Hi, can you help us to mark this page for translation? Thanks!
Hello. Other users added translate tags to Extension:CategoryTree and I've marked it for translation. Since you participated translating it to Japanese, can you copy&paste the already translated text into their corresponding units? Here's the last version before it was marked for translation (and hence, the content was replaced by the English one). Thanks!
Mistake in blocking
Hi, did you possibly meant to block Special:Contributions/Bajado from editing pages? Now I understand you only blocked the user from sending email.
It is my default behavior for years.
It's a partial block and the user can still create spam pages on this wiki.
Sorry. Not using the single quote will indeed throw the undefined constant error in 1.33. That needs to be mentioned.
I think Support desk can help you.
Constants are defined in Defines.php.
Invalid name for maintenance script transstat.php
I found that name of the page for maintenance script transstat.php is ￼￼Manual:transsat.php – it's wrongly￼￼. Is there a reason why it's called differently? I ask you because when you marked the page for translation you had to find out that it is different name. Or is it mistake and I can do repair?
Ask the original author.
Content translation/V2: please push for translation
:w:ja:Wikipedia:井戸端 has a discussion going on on CX2. I wish people would better understand what Translation extension is intended, while I understand their concerns. Could you please push the page as the comment title for translation ? I wish I could help by putting into ja, if I may.
承知しました。Thank you so much for very prompt action.
Reverted mark of page
Can I know reason why marking of the page Manual:Hooks/EditPageBeforeConflictDiff was returned, please? Thank you.
