Request to delete some local translations on

Status:    Done

Dear All,
Please could someone be so kind to delete some local translations I have checked so far with the upstream default ones. These translations are from the old days, and contain a lot of different problems. To name a few:

  • poor language skills
  • titles obsolete
  • upstream base text changes
  • messiness, typos
  • inconsistent terminology / wrong guessing
  • gibberish or half translations
  • 'my dog eats pages from my dictionary'
  • etc.

The pages to delete are listed here (no need to hurry):

Thank you very much in advance.
Kind regards --PiefPafPier (talk) 08:48, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

css request for hak.wikipedia

Status:    Done

hak:MediaWiki:common.css of hak.wikipedia needs some modification because it seems a little ugly. Let's see the article hak:Liû Tet-fà, the collapse text ("Chap-thia̍p") is broken into two lines. So it needs to be modified (for details see here; btw, i think we can copy some codes from en:MediaWiki:common.css). Can someone fix it?

And there is another bug. Let's see hak:Template:Script/doc, why the edit section button is "MediaWiki:Visualeditor-ca-editsource"? --el caballero de los Leones (talk) 10:55, 11 August 2019 (UTC)

I fixed the first but do not know what to do with the second problem. Ruslik (talk) 06:16, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
For the edit section, the button should show the contents of hak:MediaWiki:Visualeditor-ca-editsource-section, but the contents ({{MediaWiki:Visualeditor-ca-editsource}}) aren't being parsed. Can I suggest that, rather than transcluding hak:MediaWiki:Visualeditor-ca-editsource, the actual text (編寫原始碼) be copied? I would try to fix it on translatewiki, but I can't find it there - is the wrong language. --DannyS712 (talk) 08:10, 12 August 2019 (UTC)

Please help editing 2 common ".js" files at EO wiktionary

Status:    Done
  • Guilty files: MediaWiki:Common.js MediaWiki:Editor.js User:MiNeEstasVortaristo/editor.js
  • There are no interface admins
  • Problems with status quo:
    • common file "MediaWiki:Common.js" imports from private file "User:MiNeEstasVortaristo/editor.js" (the user is not active anymore)
    • 3 template names need to be changed after they have been uniformized on the lemma pages in order to get the script working for as many pages as possible
  • Solution (has been tested via private ".js" and seems to work): please copy from https : / / Uzanto:Taylorbot/comon.js (deliberately misspelled) to MediaWiki:Common.js and from https : / / Uzanto:Taylorbot/editor.js to MediaWiki:Editor.js (inexistent) and delete the no longer needed private subpages
  • Thank you. --Taylor 49 (talk) 01:21, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Please, update javascript to modern standards. Ruslik (talk) 05:30, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
After some attempts and further investigations the conclusion is that this is not easy. I am a skilled programmer in a few programming languages unfortunately NOT including JS. The corresponding code on EN or SV wiktionary is much different, integrated into the "Gadget" system and full of dependencies. I cannot deliver a state-of-the-art 2019/2020 version anytime soon. The options:
  • Is there some "official help" for small wikis lacking interface admins and skilled JS programmers?
  • To carry out the 2 edits as proposed above despite the code is 6 years old, as they most likely would fix the 2 problems and not break anything.
  • If those 2 edits are a problem, alternatively remove 2 bottom lines from MediaWiki:Common.js (common JS file importing from private JS file)
  • Doing nothing and keeping the status quo is ultimately the worst option.
Taylor 49 (talk) 21:52, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
Great ... thank you. I'll test your version ASAP (I don't fully understand what you did, though ...). Taylor 49 (talk) 17:32, 26 July 2019 (UTC)
Tested FR30799386's version and seems to work somewhat ... but at wiktionary:eo:User:FR30799386/comon.js the code is doubled (a C&P-mistake?). Could some steward now please copy from Uzanto:Taylorbot/comon.js (doubling fixed, pagename deliberately misspelled) to MediaWiki:Common.js and from Uzanto:Taylorbot/editor.js to MediaWiki:Editor.js (inexistent) and delete the no longer needed private subpages? Taylor 49 (talk) 07:22, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
The code still contains deprecated functions. Please, remove cookies functions and replace them with functions from mediawiki.cookie module (if necessary). I am also not sure that "newNode" function is necessary. Ruslik (talk) 13:42, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
Please, see mw:ResourceLoader/Migration_guide_(users) and mw:ResourceLoader/Core_modules. Please, also explicitly declare any dependencies. Ruslik (talk) 13:48, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
