Translate tags[edit]

If someone could fix the translate tags and explain to me how they work, that would be great, thanks. --Thibaut120094 (talk) 15:27, 6 December 2018 (UTC)[reply]

20190120 enwiki torrent is not linked[edit]

There's no link for any 2019 English-language torrents. I hate to burden Wikimedia with downloading the 20190120 enwiki, but I don't know how to get it otherwise.

Where are the checksums[edit]

Shouldn't we have checksums here or some information on where to find them? Seems like a good idea to have some pointer to this information so people know that they are actually getting the download they think they should be getting? --Fincle (talk) 21:36, 22 April 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, I think they should be included. (Also, the "dump-torrents" project on tools.wmflabs.org claims to have sha1 and md5 checksums (example), but when I click the links I get 404 errors.) PiRSquared17 (talk) 21:51, 22 April 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Guys, all checksums are available on the page of each of Wikipedia releases. Here for the english version: https://dumps.wikimedia.org/enwiki/ you'll find the checksums below the words "Dump complete", usually a few days after the dump is actually completed. 2803:9800:9017:4C35:C900:7DEA:81E6:4F5E 20:29, 12 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Tutorial anyone?[edit]

Can anyone knowledgeable please include a tutorial on how to create torrents? I'm wishful to download dumps and then share them here but I wouldn't know how to properly do it.

Blocked in UK or on Sky Broadband?[edit]

Are these bittorrents blocked in the UK or on Sky Broadband? The servers are completely non-responsive for me. Both nicdex.com and litika.com have the same IP address, as does torrage.info (90.207.238.183) :/ Why aren't these torrent files on wikipedia itself?
