wb?[edit]

I think your wiktionary page is missing your old es-1 and de-1, isn't it? Kylu 01:19, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Huh? I never had es-1 or de-1. I don't know what you're talking about. --Yair rand 02:03, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
User:Kylu is talking about a language chart--thing. It shows other people on the wiki's what language you speak, and how fluently, it is called {{Babel}} The spesh man 17:11, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
I understand that, but I don't know why Kylu thought I had es-1 or de-1. I do not understand either of those languages at all. --Yair rand 19:22, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
User:Kylu probably was confused with a different user. The spesh man 21:04, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
Ah, you're right, I was thinking of a different, but similarly named, user. My apologies. :) Kylu 23:51, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Wiktionary logo voting close of nominations[edit]

You just said "I agree that there really is no reason to close the nominations. ". and then you go and vote "Disagree". Uh!--Richardb 00:39, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

I voted "agree" to whether we should keep the nominations open until the voting starts. I do not think that it should remain open after the voting has started, so I voted "disagree" to that. --Yair rand 00:50, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

RE: Vote[edit]

I'm sorry, I'm an italian wikitionarian and I haven't thought that only in Italy now is the seventh of December. Sorry for my mistakes. I'll revert then now. (and sorry for my awful english : P) --Pullus In Fabula 23:20, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Don't worry about it, I already reverted it. :) --Yair rand 23:23, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Wiktionary logo vote[edit]

Are you not aware that this entire election has been hijacked by 4chan? Please do not assist their efforts. Kaldari 18:35, 23 December 2009 (UTC)

I am aware of the effort by 4chan to influence the vote. However, they have not "hijacked" it. I count 17 votes for #46, which is approximately 170 votes short of what it needs to make it to the second round. Among those votes, probably only those immediately following User:Konsgn's vote were from 4chan. I think it would be best if their efforts went entirely ignored, as we are not in any danger of it having any effect. --Yair rand 18:57, 23 December 2009 (UTC)
In http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wiktionary/logo/refresh/voting&action=historysubmit&diff=1801378&oldid=1801375 , U removed the words "have to" that i had recently inserted and U left the comment:
uh, no, that's not at all what it means
Please do explain what it means. If the book logo wins round 2, yet fails to garner the aforementioned 60% of all Wiktionaries, your text implies that we would all be prohibited from using it. Is that so? What about the tiled logo? Should such a situation arise, will we be prohibited from using it, despite the prior vote and usage history? Warmest Regards, :)—thecurran Speak your mind my past 23:46, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
The first statement is correct: if the book logo wins round 2, yet fails to garner the aforementioned 60% of all Wiktionaries, all Wiktionaries would be prohibited from using it. (There is of course no way to enforce this, but hopefully the Wiktionaries will stick to it anyways). If the tiles win, and fail to gain the 60% support, there will be no change, same as the situation with the book logo. --Yair rand 01:02, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

Re: Wiktionary/logo/refresh/voting[edit]

Ah, good catch! I actually didn't know what the requirements on Meta were until I checked noc.wikimedia.org. Thanks. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 05:10, 11 January 2010 (UTC)

wikt.org[edit]

Hi there, Yair rand! I saw you've removed dewikt from the scroll down menu. Is there a reason for this or did this just happened accidentally? As dewikt has reached over 100k entries, it should be on the menu. Regards, -Barras talk 13:30, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

The area above the dropdown list says "Top 15, in alphabetical order by ISO 639 codes". I assumed that de must have been pushed down recently and that's why it was there before (de is now #17). Personally, I'd prefer a 100,000+ minimum like wp rather than just showing the top 15, but the message in the template said otherwise. --Yair rand 18:10, 5 February 2010 (UTC)
I replied to you on the other www... talk page. I think the number is just that no one adds others to the menu. If you look at www.wikipedia.org, you will see that all +100k are on the scroll-down list. I think it should be the same way there. Best -Barras talk 19:50, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

What happened to the Wiktionary logo?[edit]

There has been no activity since April. What's going on? Logan Talk Contributions 21:21, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Hmm... Well, there's still some things that need to be done. Otourly made a refined (and svg) version a few days ago, but the left page of the logo still needs doing (See commons:Commons:Graphic_Lab/Illustration_workshop#Wiktionary_logo_candidate). Then we need localizations. Based on a discussion on the English wiktionary a short while ago, I think the switchovers to the new logo will happen at the same time as the switchover to Vector at the end of July. Hopefully by then as many Wiktionaries as possible will have versions of the logo available. --Yair rand 22:31, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Wiktionary portal suggestions[edit]

Hi, thanks for implementing suggestions in Www.wiktionary.org template/temp. Would you mind updating Www.wiktionary.org template/js with the unminified version of that code, so we can easily maintain it in the future? I'll look into updating the other portals to provide suggestions too. Thanks! – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 06:44, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Unminified version? Erm... (Oops.) Sorry, but there actually wasn't an unminified version. The "minified" way is just the way I usually write javascript unless it's in a situation where others would get annoyed if I did, and I saw that the rest of the js on that page was written like that, so... (*Self-trout for not realizing there was a normal version.*) Whatever, I'll run it through jsbeautifier and try to think up some variable names... --Yair rand 12:15, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
Done. --Yair rand 12:46, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

Wikimedia Travel Guide: Naming poll open[edit]

Hi there,

You are receiving this message because you voiced your opinion at the Request for Comment on the Wikimedia Travel Guide.

Please see Travel Guide/Naming Process for full details on voting eligibility and how the final name will be selected. Voting will last for 14 days, and will terminate on 16 October at 06:59:59 UTC.

Thanks, Thehelpfulone 22:12, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Re: Www.wiktionary.org template/js[edit]

During the year or so I wasn't looking, various folks apparently found a better way to manage the JavaScript: all the portals now include an automatically minified version of MediaWiki:Gadget-wm-portal.js. It's based so closely on the old Wikipedia script that the Wiktionary and Wikibooks portals lost all their script-based functionality. (They don't even switch between Traditional and Simplified Chinese anymore.)

Sometime before that happened, I short-circuited part of your code to put the suggestions in an HTML5 <datalist> (which displays as a native popup menu) instead of the custom-styled elements you had used. If it's alright with you, I'd like to pare down the suggestion code to support only HTML5-compatible browsers. That'll keep the changes simple and easier to test.

 – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 04:54, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Support for the datalist element is rather limited right now: http://caniuse.com/#search=datalist . Additionally, Chrome does not update listed suggestions when a datalist is modified by JS, which essentially eliminates the possibility of using it for autosuggest as every group of suggestions would be one keypress behind yet still only display the suggestions that fit the current input text, and IE10/11 support is reported to be buggy.
Unfortunately, I don't think that having it use datalist is a feasible option yet. --Yair rand (talk) 09:14, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
(Sorry, by "support only HTML5-compatible browsers", did you mean datalist-supporting browsers, or more general support for HTML5 stuff? --Yair rand (talk) 09:17, 25 August 2013 (UTC))
The portal page has suggestions?! Wow, I never knew that. I generally use Safari for browsing... PiRSquared17 (talk) 17:16, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
