Wikivoyage[edit]

Why on earth does this template link to the Main Page of the English Wikivoyage instead of the global Wikivoyage page ([1] that is www.wikivoyage.org) ?Kpjas (talk) 22:01, 9 March 2014 (UTC)

@Kpjas: This behavior is the same for all projects with language sections. By default, substituted Template:Main Page/Sisterprojects/en, with links to English versions. If called /tr version (as example), all these links lead to Turkish language versions (if exists) or test wikis in the Wikimedia Incubator (try click //tr.wikivoyage.org/wiki/ ) or another welcome page (try click //tr.wikinews.org/wiki/). This template is not used directly, but only over {{TNT}}.--Kaganer (talk) 01:37, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
Aha, now I see the concept, seems quite logical. Thanks for the info. I guess domain landing pages are the right place for portals of sister projects, in these circumstances. Kpjas (talk) 23:16, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

Logo of Phabricator[edit]

{{editrequest}}

Can we use File:Wikimedia Phabricator logo.svg instead of current image (File:Phacility phabricator logo.svg)? --minhhuy (talk) 15:00, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

+1, if you just want to do it. Holler if you want somebody else to do it, IIRC it's slightly tricky here. Be..anyone (talk) 21:39, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
+1 This where discussed on Wikimedia-Phabricator with consensus to take the Wikimedia colors, so I'm wondering why the Wikimedia take the main-logo. User: Perhelion 11:47, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
+1 --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:50, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Done by Perhelion, last nit, the Wikimedia Phabricator logo.svg favicon should match, that could require a ticket + modification on the upstream-Phab. Be..anyone (talk) 05:05, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Special:MyLanguage to link other projects’ main pages[edit]

Samuele2002 used Special:MyLanguage for and disabled translation of some main page links. I don’t like Special:MyLanguage in general, because it uses the user interface language instead of the language the link is placed on, which means users get back to the English version again and again unless they set their language preferences appropriately; but this is particularly an issue when linking to other wikis’ main pages, as probably most users using these links are first-time or casual visitors of these wikis and thus have the default interface language of English. While using Special:MyLanguage doesn’t cause much harm (except for an additional HTTP redirect, which increases the page load time by from a few milliseconds to some seconds) and can help the small fraction of users who do have their language preferences set there, keeping it translatable and letting translators hardcode the title of the knowingly existing main page translation is crucial IMO. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 20:06, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
