Invalid InterWiki links (list?)[edit]

Definition / Preliminary:

Note: Getting avare of an invalid InterWiki link could be browser / setup / configuration depending, somone can see the link and anotherone not. Using Status RESOLVED and Resolution WORKSFORME does not solve the problem.

  • should they be listed at the source Wikipedia and target Wikipedia?
  • should meta have a list about where these links are located?
  • should a section drop a note at meta be available, if the language can not be understoud?


  • should links to related known buzilla bugs (see section above) be included

Invalid links (lists)[edit]

Definition / Preliminary:

Note: many items from the section above aply, the distinction is only that these links are INSIDE a Wikipedia

  • many xx.wikipedia should have an equivalent to en:Wikipedia:Invalid links and all should be linked together
  • a list at meta should be available too
  • should a section drop a note at meta be available, if the language can not be understoud?
  • w:en:Wikipedia:Invalid article names added today: 21:45, 2004 Nov 9 (UTC)

Strategies[edit]

  • Because of the existence of such links
    • it should be investigated how these links have been created, what version of the Wikimedia software was used at that time, what browsers where used by the visitors / authors, how to avoid this in the future
      • example: See [3] an entry created by en:User:Wiglaf
      • I contacted him and hope to get some feedback [4].
    • maybe a bot should detect the existing ones and liste them at known locations (mentioned in the new places)

Category:Wikipedia Syntax and / or Template:Wikipedia Syntax[edit]

  • ... most of the items from the maintenance section above applies

Cultural specific issues[edit]

indications about bibliographic item(s) (see Catalog)[edit]

differences regarding preview of new section / coment[edit]

It works (the title is displayed in the preview) if you edit an existing comment. Gangleri 21:33, 2004 Oct 11 (UTC)

about spam[edit]

  • I was thinking a lot about spam. At many User:xxxx pages I have seen full e-mail addresses witten as 'address@domain.extension (minimal variant). Writing address at domain dot extension is very common. What about using images a template {{email|address@domain.extension}} would allow to have a common en:look and feel.

different InterWiki behaviour[edit]

w:ja:利用者:Gangleri#InterWiki, w:ru:Участник:Gangleri, w:ru:участник:Gangleri are working only in en.wikipedia and not in xx.wikipedia. Gangleri 01:41, 2004 Oct 23 (UTC)
