time for deploy[edit]

Hi, I saw you were moving id.wikisource.org to the "Languages on this page that are ready". Do you any idea of when the site will be created ? Thanks Borgx 15:33, 31 October 2005 (UTC)

Moldovan Wikipedia[edit]

I think you haven't read quite well all the aspects of Moldovan wikipedia. There isn't any single user exept Node ue who wants to have that wikipedia. Yes, he doesn't speak romanian/moldovan. Don't forget romanian/moldovan is written in latin alphabet. See official web site of Government of Moldova here: http://www.moldova.md/ So why should we have a french or german wikipedia written in Cyrillic just because a kid of 17 years old like Node ue like to play around? --Fratele lui Bonaparte, il cunosti? 05:08, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

I think what I wrote stands for itself. What I wrote has nothing to do with who the contributors are, but with the idea that a different transcription and a separate cultural identity for a language does indeed justify a separate wiki, something which the opponents of this Wikipedia deny in principle. Dovi 18:42, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

So after you having a french wikipedia just written in Cyrrilic alphabet is OK, I guess.... Don't you get it that Moldovan=Romanian and are written both in Latin alphabet? Are you aware of this or not yet? Read more, documentate first, people get bored very easily with ignorants like you. --Fratele lui Bonaparte, il cunosti? 05:21, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

Switching direction in an edit box.[edit]

Hi Larry, just a technical RTL LTR question:

Do you know what key-sequence one needs to tap in order to change text direction?

In other words, within a LTR Wikimedia edit box, if I want to time text that appears from RTL within the edit box and doesn't mess up the punctuation, what makes the cursor switch direction so that I can type in Hebrew normally?

I know that switching characters is alt-shift. Switching direction is something similar, but I can't remember what. Dovi 14:50, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Hi Dovi! It might be that there are browser specific keystrokes to change the directionality. I do not know these. I am using user:לערי ריינהארט/monobook.js made by Brion. Please see also
‎→ search MediaZilla for wpTextbox1 about places where it can be used already (protected pages) and where it should be used in the feature.
I have copied it to many projects (see CheckUsage:This users contributes BiDi 03.jpg). There is an easier way to use a JavaScript in many / all the projects you are registered by including the JavaScript from Meta in your « /monobook.js » pages at that projects.
examples:
test:user:Spacebirdy/monobook.css
test:user:Spacebirdy/monobook.js
You are welcome to join the IRC channel irc.mozilla.org/BiDi and ask irc.mozilla.org/isnik,smontagu. He speaks Hebrew. You find me with irc.freenode.net/isnik,gangleri or irc.mozilla.org/isnik,gangleri or at Skype. There my nickname is "irelgnag".
Best regards

P.S. from [1]
In Opera 9.0 (all version) doesn't work !!! keyboard combination:
Ctrl+Shift in text field.
When I press this combination in IE 6.0, IE switch direction of text from "left-to-right" to "right-to-left".
It's very important for peoples, that are using Hebrew & Arabic!!!

from irc.mozilla.org/BiDi[edit]

Dear Dovi:

<smontagu> gangleri: in Firefox you need "Switch Text Direction" from the context menu. It's only there if bidi.browser.ui is set to true in about:config (which is the default in RTL locales)
<smontagu> in IE you can use Ctrl-Left Shift and Ctrl-Right Shift

Thanks a lot Simon! Best regards

Request for user pages on all wikis[edit]

Hello Dovi. You now have user pages on nearly every wiki (see discussion and a log of changed or skipped pages). —Pathoschild 06:02:31, 04 November 2008 (UTC)

text of a policy[edit]

Hoi, the text of a policy should not contain information that is not going to be stable. It is fine when you want to mention things in talk pages. It is not good to have them in the policy text itself. Thanks, GerardM 14:27, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

I disagree (the rough numbers can always be adjusted). But if you insist (and as usual do you do not really want to discuss the issue), then perhaps a policy should not be based upon a constantly changing list maintained outside of the Wikimedia Foundation? Dovi 15:26, 25 November 2008 (UTC)
There is a difference between removing numbers and removing static references to a process. The notion that the lists changes outside of the WMF is a misconception. Thanks, GerardM 15:28, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

You are just wrong[edit]

Please study this and you will find that Pathoschild re-aranged things as indicated. The requirements for full localisation were there in the previous version as well. Thanks, GerardM 16:50, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Wikisource User Group and Community Poll[edit]

Hi Dovi. You receive this message because you signed the Wikisource User Group page: the User Group, as you probably know, is being evaluated by the AffCom, and they asked some questions that involve all interested users (as you are :-). Could you please take a moment to read these questions and answers for yourself? It is very important. Moreover, make sure you read and review the Wikisource community poll: we would like it to be filled in by as many users as possible, and we need really your help for that. If you want and can translate it, please write it here. Please contact us if you want to help: Wikisource is an amazing project, and it can be much more amazing if we all work together :-) Thanks! --Aubrey (talk) 08:55, 24 September 2013 (UTC)
