Something going wrong[edit]

Hi. Any ideas about why Meta:Requests for comment/Header is not showing on Meta:Requests for comment? I think I followed all steps but something went wrong and I don't see the issue. Sorry for any inconvenience, it's being some time since I don't edit... -- M\A 18:48, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

FuzzyBot didn't yet update [1] (you'd better not create /en subpages manually). Bugzilla:46716 as usual, it seems. --Nemo 18:54, 3 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. I deleted both /en and /es subpages, and removed the page from translation. Added back the translation tags and will wait until the bot updates, as when clicking on "mark this page for translation" I get "translation unit 25" and such, when there's no that much units to translate. I also wrapped the header on {{TNT}} on the main page. Was that ok? Best. -- M\A 19:03, 3 January 2015 (UTC)


Were and how can i translate this thats now live in English on other projects in other languages? /Hangsna (talk) 19:53, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

It looks like this banner is not using the standard Translate system for CNbanners. Instead, it's being transcluded from a previous translation (which has only 3 languages) by using int. I guess that's why it's not translatable from the Translate extension. @Beria: Could you make it translatable from the Translate extension? --Glaisher (talk) 05:15, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
Sure, will change it right away. Béria L. de Rodríguez msg 13:01, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Distribution list for Embassies?[edit]

Hi everyone. I am looking for a global message delivery list which only features Embassies/translation noticeboards. Wikidata doesn't help much in that its list is not the list of the pages where messages get actually delivered. Thanks for your attention! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 13:01, 2 February 2015 (UTC)


I blocked your Bot on dewiki. You have no Botflag please make a request on dewiki Bot/Anfragen --Itti (talk) 09:22, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

This is not a user talk page. --Glaisher (talk) 09:31, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
@Itti: Oh, I guess you meant User:Translation Notification Bot. It is not a user account but it is a system account used by TranslationNotifications extension just like User:MediaWiki_message_delivery. If you want bot flag to be set to the account, it needs to be done by the locals. Please consider unblocking it. --Glaisher (talk) 09:39, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
Simple misunderstanding by the sysop, will need to be reversed. Continues locally: [2]. --Nemo 09:40, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

FuzzyBot breaking links[edit]

FuzzyBot has recently moved several pages without leaving redirects. This has resulted in several broken links, as at Wikilegal, where the redlinked pages were moved and the bot didn't leave a redirect or adjust links to the pages. Since users and discussions on other wikis may link here as well, I think the bot should be instructed to leave the redirects intact (in addition to restoring the deleted ones). – Philosopher Let us reason together. 02:04, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

FuzzyBot only moves pages when a user does a move on the translatable pages. And there is no option to leave redirects when doing so. This is phab:T41023. --Glaisher (talk) 04:23, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Request for Arabic and French translations of WikiArabia2015[edit]

I think WikiArabia2015 should have translations in both Arabic and French. French is a major language of Tunisia, where the conference will be held, so it is also very important. Also WikiArabia/fr needs to be completed. WhisperToMe (talk) 07:05, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
