Order of second table[edit]

I think it would be a lot friendlier if the second table on this page was in reverse chronological order (newest on top). I know it is sortable, but it is just annoying to always have the old Xitsonga and Scots requests on top. Would this be sensible? This, that and the other (talk) 02:44, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

I have no objection if you make this change. Unfortunately it seems that it's impossible to simple tell the software to sort according to the date (beh!) - though we might need to add a new column for the date of the closing of the request then. --MF-W 08:44, 22 July 2013 (UTC)
I have now added a new column for that. It is however currently not showing up for whatever problem with the template. --MF-W 09:28, 22 July 2013 (UTC)
There, I fixed it. My proposal was to rearrange the rows into reverse chronological order by closure date: I will try this now. If it is not wanted, the edits can always be reverted. Thanks, This, that and the other (talk) 09:37, 22 July 2013 (UTC)
I understood that that was your proposal; my additional idea to it was to add the closure date into the table as that is what determines the sorting order of the table (whether in chronological or reverse order).
Your fix works, though I wanted to make the parameter have no output at all for use in the table of open requests (where it's clear that there is no end date yet). --MF-W 10:26, 22 July 2013 (UTC)
I tried to fix my fix, but I gave up... the template is too hard to repair :/ Sorry about this, I didn't see that the same template was used in both tables. This, that and the other (talk) 10:37, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

Sotho Wiktionary[edit]

I just got informed that Sotho Wiktionary is entirely written in English and contains no Sotho content at all. I am not entirely sure how to handle this case. I think it's clear that content that's not in the target language is not useful. Now, what should be done? Should all pages be deleted and the then empty wiki nominated for closure? Or should the wiki be nominated for closure now with the English-language content intact?

I asked around on English Wiktionary if they have any use for the pages from Sotho Wiktionary. It seems they don't want them due to quality concerns. -- Liliana 10:57, 27 November 2013 (UTC)

Normally you would propose it for closure before deleting any content; that way, we can see just how bad it really is! This, that and the other (talk) 11:10, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
IMHO content in the wrong language should always be deleted. --MF-W 22:51, 28 November 2013 (UTC)
