@Ijon: Many of the languages don't have the CITELEAD policy, and they need to discuss with the community before setting that up. Is there any way we can exclude that from translating. KCVelaga (talk) 10:19, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

@Ijon: Reminder, and Kannada and Hindi have been done. KCVelaga (talk) 04:31, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
@KCVelaga: thanks for the ping. I have now submitted those localizations as a patch to the Citation Hunt code repository. Shortly after it is "merged", it should be reflected in the online tool. Ijon (talk) 18:01, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
@Ijon: Great, thank you. KCVelaga (talk) 23:57, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
I see there is some confusion about the categories and templates; here they are
KCVelaga (talk) 00:02, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
Oh, I see. So, the tool depends on a category containing pages that need citations, and on a specific template marking the place needing a citation in the page. That template is assumed to include the category, so that placing the template in an article would also add the maintenance category ("articles needing citation" or something like that) to the page. If Hindi/Kannada Wikipedia do not have such a practice, the tool won't work.
To benefit from the tool, you would need to introduce (slowly and gradually is fine) this practice, of marking citation-needing places with a template, that would include a category name (not a Wikipedia namespace page as was put in Hindi), so that the category would point at pages needing citations, and the template (named in the configuration) would mark the spot. I hope this is clearer now. Let me know if/when hi/kn communities are ready with an appropriate template and category, so the tool can begin to be useful. Ijon (talk) 11:50, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
@Ijon: These are templates and categories;

@Gopala Krishna A: Please give links to the citation needed template and the respective category for Kannada Wikipedia. KCVelaga (talk) 05:49, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
I will give. --Gopala Krishna A (talk) 12:08, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
@Gopala Krishna A: Any update on this? KCVelaga (talk) 10:08, 21 April 2019 (UTC)


@QueerEcofeminist: I see that you've worked on Marathi links, thanks for that :) Also please provide the link to the "Citation needed" template and the respective category on mrwiki. After that, we'll be able to enable the tool for Marathi. KCVelaga (talk) 10:12, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
