Meta-Wiki has a small active community. When a normal user requires the assistance of an administrator or bureaucrat for some particular task, it is not always easy to find one. This page helps users find one when they need one; asking specific admins directly via their talk pages is one way to elicit a fast response.

Find Translated text and Text update in many articles[edit]

Moin Moin, I have two questions for technical feasibility. In the past and for now I will tranlate artikles to german.

  1. In the suggestion list for already tranlated, equal text are texts that are wrong. How could you find where these are installed?
  2. With regard to question one. Is it possible to update many artikles automatically? If I find a text, that is wrong, I will update all artikles this text is installed in.

Thank you for telling me a way. Regards --Crazy1880 (talk) 12:57, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

Magst du das vielleicht ins Deutsche übersetzen? So versteh ich es nämlich nicht. --MF-W 16:54, 20 November 2016 (UTC)
Moin Moin MF-W, hätte ich gewusst, hätte ich gleich deutsch genommen. Okai, also ich habe mich beim Übersetzen versucht und bin schnell darauf gestoßen, dass die selben Texte in unterschiedlichen Versionen vorliegen, obwohl ein Standardtext ja besser wäre. So, nun stelle ich mich aber mit der Suche augenscheinlich etwas an, ich würde die 20 unterschiedlichen Versionen gerne finden und zu einem Text machen. (Soviel zu Nummer 1) Nummer 2 baut darauf auf. Nehmen wir an, ich hätte jetzt einen Text, der in 100 Artikeln eingesetzt ist, wo aber ein Fehler drinnen ist, wie kann man diesen am Schnellsten beheben, natürlich mit möglichst wenig Aufwand. mfg --Crazy1880 (talk) 16:39, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
Ein Tool dafür haben wir bisher nicht. Man könnte vielleicht sowas wie translatewiki:Template:Identical einrichten. Ansonsten müsste man die identischen Texte eben in Vorlagen stecken, die dann mehrfach eingebunden werden. --MF-W 13:14, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
Okai, vielen Dank für die Antwort --Crazy1880 (talk) 19:34, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Mark for translation[edit]

Please mark CopyPatrol for translation. I don't know what is the best place to ask this. Thank you. --Framawiki (talk) 13:02, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

This is a good place :-) I'll wait for Kaganer to do a syntax review of the page. Regards, —MarcoAurelio 14:05, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Marked the page. But i think i should wait for @Kaganer: to review tags of the page. Sorry, I apologies. Please review, and correct if i'm mistaken. Kind RegardsTBhagat (talk) 16:54, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
Why have you marked it for translation? Which part of "wait for Kaganer" is not clear? The wiki won't break of course, but it's easier to fix things before marking pages for translation than after. You should read before rushing to use the buttons. —MarcoAurelio 17:02, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done again ;) Dear TBhagat, very thanks for fast helping, but there were a few works that should have been done before. See diff and diff. Perhaps in the future, you still should not be so hasty. --Kaganer (talk) 21:27, 26 November 2016 (UTC)
Thank you ! --Framawiki (talk) 20:05, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Semiprotection please[edit]

Can somebody please semiprotect my user talk, User talk:Future Perfect at Sunrise, long-term? Vandalism from crosswiki banned user Wikinger has become too frequent, and there's never been any legitimate IP traffic there. Fut.Perf. 21:59, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, please let us know when you want it removed. Best regards, Defender (talk) 22:22, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
