Updated Mass Message/Wiki Loves Folklore 2021 is back!

You are humbly invited to participate in commons:Commons: Wiki Loves Folklore 2021 campaign from 1 February - 28 February. Wiki Loves Folklore is an international photography contest organized on Wikimedia Commons to document folklore and intangible cultural heritage from different regions, including, folk creative activities and many more.

You can help in enriching the folklore documentation on Commons from your region by taking photos, audios, videos, and submitting them in the commons campaign.

Please support us in translating the project page and banner message to help us spread the word in your native language.
Learn more about the contest and prizes by visiting this link. Thank you.

If reference to the aforementioned issue @Yair rand the mass message has been modified. Please note that the previous mass text was huge due to an elaboration on two different campaigns. We will be glad to have you look at this to push the mass message since the contest has begun and we need the Community to support.

Title translation removing

Hello!

Can a sysop delete Translations:WikiFranca/Page display title/ta, please? It has been tagged with {{delete}}, however it is not well categorized because it is a page title. --Pols12 (talk) 20:41, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

And, by the way, to remove Translations:Meta:Interlanguage links/Page display title/zh-cn too please? -- Pols12 (talk) 20:52, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
Done. Sgd. —Hasley 21:43, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

Possible spambot (en)

I was trying to manually translate an Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees/Call for feedback: Community Board seats/Conversations creating a Translations:Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees/Call for feedback: Community Board seats/Conversations/Page display title/uk and saw attention about possible abuse filter block using subj rule. That's not first time (before blocks was connected to using "translate" extension page). What is wrong? Fix it please! 195.138.78.6 22:54, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

And again. Doing the same editing Translations:Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees/Call for feedback: Community Board seats/Conversations/2021-02-02 - First Office Hour/Page display title/uk195.138.78.6 22:56, 2 February 2021 (UTC) Any ideas?

I can see the issue, part of the filter involves checking for Cyrillic characters...but I have no idea why it's doing that. If I'm reading the filter logs correctly it was imported from enwiki, where that check might make more sense, but it doesn't really make sense on meta. I've removed the problematic check in the filter. GeneralNotability (talk) 02:05, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

Correction Banner Folklore 2021 in French

Should read :

Photographiez votre culture locale, aidez Wikipédia et gagnez des prix !

Actual banner too informal. Thanks.--DDupard (talk) 11:24, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

Notifying Trizek (WMF) for his opinion, as he was the last user to translate that piece of text [1]. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 16:30, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
It has been fixed. Trizek (WMF) (talk) 14:05, 8 February 2021 (UTC)
But not broadcasted yet.--DDupard (talk) 10:24, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
@DDupard: I've commited the change to the CentralNotice system (diff) so it should be appearing corrected any minute (usually around 10 minutes). Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:52, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

Request for patroller

Hey, I currently use SWViewer to fight cross-wiki vandalism. Sometimes (not often) I also stumble over vandalism here on meta. Therefore, I would like to have patroller rights to more easily revert this vandalism. Also, I would like to help mark good edits as patrolled. Regards --ZabeMath (talk) 20:48, 14 February 2021 (UTC)

@ZabeMath: Kindly Make a request for patroller rights in Steward requests/Global permissions Thanks. MRGN (talk to me!) 06:25, 15 February 2021 (UTC)
@MakeRocketGoNow: This is the correct venue for requesting Meta-Wiki patroller. -- CptViraj (talk) 07:23, 15 February 2021 (UTC)
Ok That's seems good @CptViraj: Sorry, I thought we can only place request for any rights in Steward requests/Global permissions. No Issue thanks for your information's. MRGN (talk to me!) 07:34, 15 February 2021 (UTC)
No problem :) -- CptViraj (talk) 07:55, 15 February 2021 (UTC)
I see no red flags, user seems to be trusted at their homewiki, is also a TA here, I see no reason apart from the low amount of undos to not grant, so @ZabeMath: Yes check.svg Granted. Thanks for volunteering and hope you use the tool judiciously. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 11:39, 15 February 2021 (UTC)

Restore translation pages

Hello!

Can a sysop restore Setting up an internal Wikimedia wiki/* translation pages (* being a language code), please? This aims to keep what can be kept from translations (you may read discussion on Create new wiki talk page). Then I (or someone else) will merge content from Create new wiki to Setting up an internal Wikimedia wiki. Finally, Create new wiki will need to be deleted to replace it with updated Setting up an internal Wikimedia wiki. --Pols12 (talk) 19:32, 13 February 2021 (UTC)

I have restored the translation pages, but Quiddity already merged the content. Pols12, please see Special:PrefixIndex/Setting up an internal Wikimedia wiki. Sgd. —Hasley 13:15, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
Many thanks @Hasley! Do you think it is technically feasible to restore translation units too (Translations:Setting up an internal Wikimedia wiki/n/*, n being a number or “Page display title”, and * being a language code)? Pols12 (talk) 20:05, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
Pols12, I can restore all units (133 including English units, as far as I can count), but if their number change, they will need to be updated manually. Just let me know and I will do it. Sgd. —Hasley 20:22, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
Yes, restoring all these units would be greatly appreciated. Numbers should not have changed, and given the time I just spent to restore French I am pretty sure that would be much easier with a restoration. Pols12 (talk) 20:50, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
Symbol wait.svg Doing... Sgd. —Hasley 20:53, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. Pols12, please check them. A null edit on a unit should update all the translation page, if I recall correctly. Sgd. —Hasley 21:11, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
That seems good Face-smile.svg Null edit has actually worked, indeed. And as I should re-mark the page for translation, I did it and it has updated all translation pages too.
Renaming is still in discussion and would probably not require sysop rights, so this request may be closed, thanks!! -- Pols12 (talk) 21:58, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

Translation

I have added the translation for "The steward elections have started. Please vote." in Afrikaans. at least I think I successfully did it Thanks, Anonymous 7481 (talk) 17:04, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

Hello @Anonymous 7481, I cannot find in your contributions any translation in Afrikaans for the banner text. You may do so at Special:Translate. Sometimes the interface is faulty though :-( You may need to retry if the text ain't saved. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 17:22, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
Try now? Anonymous 7481 (talk) 17:25, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
@Anonymous 7481 Sadly, I still don't see any translations. Would you mind putting the translation to CNBanner:Stewvote-text1/af directly? Thanks! Martin Urbanec (talk) 22:08, 7 February 2021 (UTC)

Could you please move the page from the old title to the new one, leaving a redirect? It was recently agreed at Talk:Ombuds_commission/Archives/2020#Naming that the organisation's title would change from Ombudsman to Ombuds, and we have been updating all references on Meta to reflect the change, as and when we come across them.
