Eihel[edit]

Ending 26 April 2019 14:30 (UTC)

Hello, I'm TA on WD. Following a translation request, I was stuck in it because the page was not marked for translation. In fact, it was a bug that went back to https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T221119. I went on #wikimedia-translation, but I did not find any help. Another candidate is not insignificant (and I would not have to bother many people next time). Accustomed to this job, have confidence, see this or this. Regards. --Eihel (talk) 14:32, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Support Support sure, but there's possible work around afaik, what I did here Talk:Tech/News/2019/15#Something_is_wrong is waiting for the queue (but it's too long imo, 30 minutes is too long for high traffic pages), later it was confirmed by Phab:T221119#5121833 which later have to be fixed by this Phab:T213802 which IMO undesireable, 25% reduction still only 25% of 30 minutes of problem, means at minimum I still have to wait for 5 minutes, do I like this? Nope. But there's no other way around, if you could help, why not?--AldnonymousBicara? 07:00, 20 April 2019 (UTC)
    Hello, my observations @Aldnonymous:
    First, the page I was dealing with, is not done the right way with the <translate> tags (multiplication of translation). The translation could be done even with a different text version. But Wladek92 has changed the layout (with good reason), but without adding the markers of translation. The original text is visible, but is no longer available for translation, hence the message "The page you are trying to edit does not seem to correspond any page marked for translation". In addition, any translations made previously is no longer visible (as the marker is removed, the page page/language is lost) , that's what baffled me. I think the problem was to mark the version for translation with new markers <!--T:1--> (declare on Meta talk:Babylon or talk to Elitre (WMF)), which was not. Apparently, the bug only appeared later after this change. "there's possible work around afaik": yes, but only for pages with all markers and that's where I could be useful. I am not a aficionado of Phab, so if you want to go up the info, no problem. Greetings friendly. --Eihel (talk) 11:11, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
    Totally understandable, but please report this to Phab :) .--AldnonymousBicara? 11:19, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
    (I got pinged, but I'm not sure if there's anything you need from me here. If so, please elaborate. Thanks. --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 12:28, 23 April 2019 (UTC))
    hum... no needFace-confused.svg. It's just that when I say something about someone, I let them know instead of talking in secret. SorryFace-blush.svg --Eihel (talk) 12:38, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
    No worries! And if you spot any issues in ASBS translation markups, please do feel free to fix! TY, --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 13:07, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

    Oh Geeze, just keep it on phab will you? :) not many people here understand this, you could also post it on my User-talkpage instead, rather than cluttering your RfTA :D.--AldnonymousBicara? 18:24, 23 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Cautious Support Support. Hope you take it slow here and ask if unsure. Since it is an once off bug to fix, are you asking for temporary or permanent access as it's unclear in your statement. Thanks for offering to help.--Cohaf (talk) 10:40, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Support Support though I must agree with Cohaf above, please take it easy and ask if you don't know anything. Other than that, should be a fine candidate. Prima. —Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 23:56, 23 April 2019 (UTC)
