Something going wrong[edit]

Hi. Any ideas about why Meta:Requests for comment/Header is not showing on Meta:Requests for comment? I think I followed all steps but something went wrong and I don't see the issue. Sorry for any inconvenience, it's being some time since I don't edit... -- M\A 18:48, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

FuzzyBot didn't yet update [1] (you'd better not create /en subpages manually). Bugzilla:46716 as usual, it seems. --Nemo 18:54, 3 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. I deleted both /en and /es subpages, and removed the page from translation. Added back the translation tags and will wait until the bot updates, as when clicking on "mark this page for translation" I get "translation unit 25" and such, when there's no that much units to translate. I also wrapped the header on {{TNT}} on the main page. Was that ok? Best. -- M\A 19:03, 3 January 2015 (UTC)


Were and how can i translate this thats now live in English on other projects in other languages? /Hangsna (talk) 19:53, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

It looks like this banner is not using the standard Translate system for CNbanners. Instead, it's being transcluded from a previous translation (which has only 3 languages) by using int. I guess that's why it's not translatable from the Translate extension. @Beria: Could you make it translatable from the Translate extension? --Glaisher (talk) 05:15, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
Sure, will change it right away. Béria L. de Rodríguez msg 13:01, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Distribution list for Embassies?[edit]

Hi everyone. I am looking for a global message delivery list which only features Embassies/translation noticeboards. Wikidata doesn't help much in that its list is not the list of the pages where messages get actually delivered. Thanks for your attention! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 13:01, 2 February 2015 (UTC)


I blocked your Bot on dewiki. You have no Botflag please make a request on dewiki Bot/Anfragen --Itti (talk) 09:22, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

This is not a user talk page. --Glaisher (talk) 09:31, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
@Itti: Oh, I guess you meant User:Translation Notification Bot. It is not a user account but it is a system account used by TranslationNotifications extension just like User:MediaWiki_message_delivery. If you want bot flag to be set to the account, it needs to be done by the locals. Please consider unblocking it. --Glaisher (talk) 09:39, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
Simple misunderstanding by the sysop, will need to be reversed. Continues locally: [2]. --Nemo 09:40, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

FuzzyBot breaking links[edit]

FuzzyBot has recently moved several pages without leaving redirects. This has resulted in several broken links, as at Wikilegal, where the redlinked pages were moved and the bot didn't leave a redirect or adjust links to the pages. Since users and discussions on other wikis may link here as well, I think the bot should be instructed to leave the redirects intact (in addition to restoring the deleted ones). – Philosopher Let us reason together. 02:04, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

FuzzyBot only moves pages when a user does a move on the translatable pages. And there is no option to leave redirects when doing so. This is phab:T41023. --Glaisher (talk) 04:23, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Request for Arabic and French translations of WikiArabia2015[edit]

I think WikiArabia2015 should have translations in both Arabic and French. French is a major language of Tunisia, where the conference will be held, so it is also very important. Also WikiArabia/fr needs to be completed. WhisperToMe (talk) 07:05, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Remove from translation[edit]

I want to remove User:Baffo do translator.
If possible, move the notices translator on the talk page GseSro. Thank you.

You don't simply move user page to change your username. Please request it at SRUC. --Glaisher (talk) 16:18, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
