Template:Sisterproject/ru[edit]

You really have not read the warning in the wikitext of the main Sisterproject template? Or hand tremble? --Kaganer 20:28, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

I am sorry? I am in the middle of converting the wiki table markup into a template. At that article. I just got distracted for a few minutes. -- とある白い猫 chi? 20:29, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
Thank you, I do not understand. I'm sorry - just did not have to save that "strange" version.--Kaganer 23:22, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
I am working on converting various main page templates under a certain standard version so that information stays current on all translations. This is part of an effort to translate the main page into a templated structure. Russian for example is already done Main Page/ru. -- とある白い猫 chi? 23:25, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
OK, I complete translation. Should be redirect from Заглавная страница to Main Page/ru, or from Main Page/ru to Заглавная страница (Russian interface have direct link to Заглавная страница pagename). --Kaganer 00:22, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
You are welcome to replace the content of Заглавная страница with {{:Main Page/ru}} if you like if you feel the new design is sufficient and adequate. :) -- とある白い猫 chi? 01:25, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. Unification - it's cool! ;) --Kaganer 13:40, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
 :D I actually need help for the task. :) -- とある白い猫 chi? 13:33, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
Where is todo list? --Kaganer 14:24, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

New versions of Main Page[edit]

First stage (2011)[edit]

I think, many wikimedians will help you. For example:

(to be continued) I do search user for create main pages for more languages of etnic groups in Russia (/sah, /udm, /os etc). --Kaganer 15:32, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

I have been at a desperate search for translations. I have been somewhat successful with languages with a greater IRC presence but for others I am rather baffled. I could of course hunt down translators on their individual local wikis but that is far too much work on top of making sure template complies with everyone's needs. I designed the template structure to provide with all the content needed for the translation. I do not have a documentation for it but the task could be simplified as (this could be the to do list)...
  1. Going to Template:Other languages/Template:Main Page and clicking on the relevant red link and translating that.
  2. Once that's done the next task is to translate the English content on the sub pages. You can see what I mean in Template:Main Page/sr. Whenever the "Edit" links are clicked it will generate the relevant template to be translated and will automatically replace the /en usage the moment the /xx template is created. Sub template structure (edit links will update or create these):
    1. Template:Main Page/Intro
    2. Template:Main Page/World Heritage
    3. Information thread Template:Main Page/WM News (optional, but recommended)
    4. Template:Main Page/Requests
    5. Template:Main Page/Community and communication
    6. Template:Main Page/Core issues and collaboration
    7. Template:Main Page/Wikimedia Foundation
    8. Template:Main Page/Sisterprojects
I'd like to point out {{Sisterprojects}} already has a lot of translations done but they need to be templateified.
The fun part is once the translations are complete and we decide to add something to the main page, all non translations will display the English text letting translators know exactly what needs to be translated.
-- とある白い猫 chi? 16:33, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
I see. Good. I inform those who can. --Kaganer 16:55, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
/rue and /tt - in progress. --Kaganer 17:33, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Mind you some languages has material that could be used from the current main pages they have. :) On the bright side {{Sisterprojects}} templatification process is complete with the help of multiple people. They still need translations here and there but at least it is no longer the complicated wikitable. -- とある白い猫 chi? 08:00, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
Any progress on these? :) -- とある白い猫 chi? 09:40, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
/ka is finished--Kaganer 12:16, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
Are you planning on expanding the translations to other languages? Many version of the main page still uses the older style unfortunately. -- とある白い猫 chi? 11:00, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Second stage (2014-2016)[edit]

Template for new language (langcode substituted from user interface language):

  • {{subst:User:kaganer/mpt|zzz|en}}
    where
    1. "zzz" is language code of target language.
    2. (optional) language code for preload content, "en" by default.

Example:

{{subst:User:kaganer/mpt|zzz}} {{subst:User:kaganer/mpt|xy|ab}}

Template:Main Page/zzz[edit]

Thanks to creating Template:Main Page/zzz! For complete translation need also to create next pages (just click links and translate text to the right of the "=" sign):

and three links through Translate Extension:

If you can finish it, then it would be great. Very thanks before, --~~~~

Template:Main Page/xy[edit]

Thanks to creating Template:Main Page/xy! For complete translation need also to create next pages (just click links and translate text to the right of the "=" sign):

and three links through Translate Extension:

If you can finish it, then it would be great. Very thanks before, --~~~~

Inspire Campaign on content curation & review[edit]

WPCube.png

I've recently launched an Inspire Campaign to encourage new ideas focusing on content review and curation in Wikimedia projects. Wikimedia volunteers collaboratively manage vast repositories of knowledge, and we’re looking for your ideas about how to manage that knowledge to make it more meaningful and accessible. We invite you to participate and submit ideas, so please get involved today! The campaign runs until March 28th.

All proposals are welcome - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is welcome - your skills and experience can help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign to improve review and curation tasks so that we can make our content more meaningful and accessible! I JethroBT (WMF) 05:39, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

Help[edit]

Can you add my name in this page. sysops are not active. Help me--Maathavan (talk) 11:49, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

@Maathavan:, What is the meaning this change (as example)? --Kaganer (talk) 12:08, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
I want to create some words using AWB in wiktionary no as that change. I already requested a sysop but he had more so he can't add my name. --Maathavan (talk) 12:14, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
not wanted sysop replied. thank you--Maathavan (talk) 12:16, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

Помощь[edit]

Уважаемый Kaganer! Я здесь делал перевод, но не показывается в проектах викимедиа. В чём проблема? С уважением, --Химик1991 (talk) 14:06, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

  1. потому что вот тут мы видим сообщение "This language code should remain unused. Localise in tg-cyrl please."
  2. потому что переводы с translatewiki.net приезжают в ВП далеко не мгновенно. Иногда неделя может пройти, иногда месяц.
--Kaganer (talk) 06:19, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

Adminship?[edit]

Dear Kaganer. Would you accept that I nominate you for adminship here at Meta? I see that you do a lot of translation-related work which frequently involve deleting stuff or doing mass changes for which the admin tools to delete that stuff yourself or granting/removing the flood flag to your account would be useful. Looking forward your answer. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 15:07, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

I guess that your silence means that you decline my offer. That's fine, no hard feelings. If you ever change your mind, I'll be happy to nominate you if you wish. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio 17:28, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
Dear MarcoAurelio! I'm sorry for a long time without an answer! Thank you for this flattering offer, but I do not see the possibility to fulfill this role. My English is still very weak (as "GoogleTranslate-sponsored"), that hurt me in the past and that continues today. But the main thing is different. My recent "stormly" activity has been counterproductive (if we consider the balance "effort / result"). And besides, such a high level of activity is not acceptable to me, as it does not give me the opportunity to do other important things. I therefore intend to reduce my meta-activity to the lowest level possible, limited only by the support of Russian translations of the key pages. Thank you again and I am sorry that I was not able to meet your expectations!--Kaganer (talk) 00:31, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Open Call for Individual Engagement Grants[edit]

IEG barnstar 2.png

Greetings! The Individual Engagement Grants (IEG) program is accepting proposals until April 12th to fund new tools, research, outreach efforts, and other experiments that enhance the work of Wikimedia volunteers.

Babel категория[edit]

Kaganer, мы здесь обсудили структуру категорий для {{#Babel|Code-N}} и {{#Babel|Code-1/2/3/4/5}}. Вы можете написать заявку от имени uzwiki в phabricator:? Если да, то категории для {{#Babel|Code-N}} (где Code = коды языков) будут [[Turkum:User Code]] и [[Turkum:User Code-N]], а для {{#Babel|Code-0/1/2/3/4/5}} (где Code = коды языков, 0,1,2,3,4,5 = уровень владения языками) [[Turkum:User Code]] и [[Turkum:User Code-0/1/2/3/4/5]]. --Химик1991 (talk) 12:58, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Blanked User:Kaganer/Template:GrantmakingNavbar[edit]

Hi Kaganer. Your /Template:GrantmakingNavbar subpage had a script error because you can't invoke a user page as a Module. I blanked the page to remove it from Category:Pages with script errors. Let me know if you object. :) —Pathoschild 23:29, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

Pathoschild, Thanks. I don't remember this idea :( --Kaganer (talk) 06:08, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

ASBS nominations category[edit]

Did you mean to do this? The nominations page was using that category. Emufarmers (talk) 05:24, 29 April 2016 (UTC)

Emufarmers, i'm sorry, did not mean this. In such case will be better to write an explanation notice on the category page.--Kaganer (talk) 10:05, 29 April 2016 (UTC)

Participate in the Inspire Campaign and help address harassment![edit]

NounProject Leaves.png

Through June, we’re organizing an Inspire Campaign to encourage and support new ideas focusing on addressing harassment toward Wikimedia contributors. The 2015 Harassment Survey has shown evidence that harassment in various forms - name calling, threats, discrimination, stalking, and impersonation, among others - is pervasive. Available methods and systems to deal with harassment are also considered to be ineffective. These behaviors are clearly harmful, and in addition, many individuals who experience or witness harassment participate less in Wikimedia projects or stop contributing entirely.

Proposals in any language are welcome during the campaign - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is appreciated, and collaboration is encouraged - your skills and experience may help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign so that we can work together to develop ideas around this important and difficult issue. With thanks,

FuzzyBot updates[edit]

Hi. I noticed your null edits on the Bureaucrat page. It's no longer needed when marking for translation but it can sometimes take a minute or more for the changes to take effect on the pages as the job queue is used for these updates. See phab:T53731 and phab:T48716. Cheers, Glaisher (talk) 12:39, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

Dear Glaisher, thanks! I'm watching this topic since 2013. While I do not see a good result. Maybe Job is running, but not fast enough (not as fast as I need). --Kaganer (talk) 12:51, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
The job that gets run when pages are marked does some heavy updates so it cannot be done immediately and that is also why it is not fast. Even if you mark pages for translation twice now (with a dummy edit in between), it is unlikely that it will get any faster because two heavy jobs will now have to be run. So even if it "feels" like it is faster, the system will have to do the same work twice. Usually it will run within the minute (or the next minute) when marking for translation so I think doing it once will be okay and is enough and adding two jobs is not needed because it doesn't actually complete faster. Regards, --Glaisher (talk) 05:48, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
Well, I'll try to remember this is now. Motor reflexes are not so easy to change :) Thanks again! --Kaganer (talk) 07:38, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Cannot delete translatable pages[edit]

Hi Kaganer, I can't delete the translatable pages requested for deletion by you, Category:Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees/tet and Board letter on paid contributions without disclosure/tet; have you any idea why? Syum90 (talk) 08:06, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

Syum90, I saw ;) Please use Special:PageTranslationDeletePage by links from me renewed requests ;) --Kaganer (talk) 16:43, 23 June 2016 (UTC)
I did it this way the first time but I couldn't delete the pages; now I've tried to delete Category:Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees/tet again and I have not could delete it. I've used Special:PageTranslationDeletePage again.--Syum90 (talk) 07:27, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
Syum90, New bugreport opened: phab:T138571. --Kaganer (talk) 10:01, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Syum90, Please try delete Category:Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees/tet again. --Kaganer (talk) 12:20, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

I still can't delete the page.--Syum90 (talk) 06:18, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

something weird at mg.wikt[edit]

I found this page [1] that contains no content, no history, no locked, no black listed but it cannot edit anything. And it fails pywikibot. I suggest to delete this fault page. --Octahedron80 (talk) 00:37, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

Found another page [2] --Octahedron80 (talk) 14:26, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
@Octahedron80: This may be result of database corruption. See similar bug - phab:T92046. Needs to write bugreport about this issue.--Kaganer (talk) 16:11, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

Cannot add information into User Group Pages[edit]

Здравствуй Kaganer! I am a member of the Basque Wikimedians User Group. I saw that you edited it, and thus I think you may know something on the matter. I tried to edit our user group pages in different languages, but it refers back to English, editing is blocked. Is there any way we can opt to either edit on the chosen language or translate automatically from English? However, I am not allowed either to translate new content added to the English page into other language pages, the translation tool just won't give me the option. Regards --Iñaki LL (talk) 11:51, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Iñaki LL, all translatable pages in Meta-wiki has a English lahguage as base language. This is site-specific setting. New content should be added in English version, then your changes is marked as "available for translation", then you can add your Basque content as "translation". I'm sorry, but any otherwise way on Meta is impossible for translatable pages. --Kaganer (talk) 20:12, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
@Kaganer: New content was added to the English page not long ago. Still I cannot translate it into Basque, since it does not show when I open the translation tool. The source text showing on the translation tool is the text added when the page was created, even though text added later can be seen on the English page. That baffles me. --Iñaki LL (talk) 23:44, 20 August 2016 (UTC)
Iñaki LL, new content should be reviewed (about markup) and marked for translation by translation administrator. This is done manually. Now I have done it and the new text is available for translation. --Kaganer (talk) 13:08, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
Thank you, translation did work:) However, I find the procedure a bit nagging to be honest. Now I have a duplicate red link on the last section of the Basque page ("Ebazpenak"), probably created by me on translation, but I cannot remove it. Could you just erase it? Thanks --Iñaki LL (talk) 12:03, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
Fixed. --Kaganer (talk) 12:20, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

Translate tags apaprently broke something[edit]

Hello Kaganer!

You updated this template and something went wrong because now the "translate" tags appear in a page that calls to this template. Here: Grants:APG/Proposals. Can you please make sure that your changes work or roll them back very quickly until we have found a good solution? This page is super important especially today since reports are coming in. Thank you! Delphine (WMF) (talk) 12:57, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

@Delphine (WMF): I'm sorry, I did not notice "noinclude" tags :( This is reverted. --Kaganer (talk) 13:56, 28 September 2016 (UTC)
No worries, thank you for acting quickly :) We have a long standing issue of lack of translation for the APG program altogether, and it's something we will address in the near future. I'll ping you then! Delphine (WMF) (talk) 09:11, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

Запрос админских прав[edit]

Здравствуйте, Павел. Я оставил на Мете заявку на получения админских прав в марийской википедии. Владимир Медейко при нашей встрече посоветовал обратиться к вам за помощью, чтобы мне дали статус постоянного администратора, а не временного. Вы можете помочь? --Санюн Вадик (talk) 11:23, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

Санюн Вадик - я поддержал заявку, но нужно, чтобы в самом проекте хоть кто-то проголосовал из локальных участников. Напиши ещё в ru:Обсуждение проекта:Разделы Википедии на региональных языках России. --Kaganer (talk) 11:50, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

По поводу временных администраторских полномочий на МариВики[edit]

Уважаемый Павел, мне вновь дали только права временного администратора на Марийской Википедии, хотя я в запросе флага указал, что временным администратором я являлся на протяжении нескольких лет и прошу флаг постоянного администратора. Я прошу вашей помощи в назначении меня постоянным администратором. --Санюн Вадик (talk) 09:04, 15 October 2016 (UTC)

Санюн Вадик, мне кажется, что на Мете схема теперь одна и та же для всех: сначала (после перерыва) дают временного, по итогам активности в этом качестве могут дать постоянного. Нет смысла в это упираться. Стоит просто сказать спасибо и работать. По завершении "пробного периода" запросить у сообщества "обратную связь", мол, "справляюсь ли?", и подать заявку на постоянного. Параллельно найти среди участников и "воспитать" второго админа. --Kaganer (talk) 07:15, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

2016 Community Wishlist Survey[edit]

Hi,

You’re getting this message because you participated in the 2015 Community Wishlist Survey and we want to make sure you don't miss it this year – or at least can make the conscious choice to ignore if it you want to. The 2015 survey decided what the Community Tech team should work on during 2016. It was also the focus of Wikimedia hackathons and work by other developers. You can see the status of wishes from the 2015 wishlist at 2015 Community Wishlist Survey/Results.

The 2016 Community Wishlist Survey is now open for wishes. You can create proposals until November 20. You will be able to vote on which wishes you think are best or most important between November 28 and December 12. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 11:17, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

Cookie statment/bg[edit]

Здравствуйте,
Зачем переводить заново текст когда у нас был уже перевод здесь?--Ket (talk) 09:22, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Ket, Я ничего не переводил. Я исправил разметку базовой страницы (сократил количество элементов), а затем вернул переводы, которые пропали после изменения. См. diff. --Kaganer (talk) 09:26, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
Да, но почему-то сейчас не вызывается существующий перевод, как было, а везде линк переменился к https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Cookie_statement, что неправильно для болгарской версии--Ket (talk) 09:38, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
Прошу прощения, проблема кажется шире - все ссылки внизу страниц переменились, не только эта. Так что забудьте пока--Ket (talk) 10:09, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
Это другой вопрос, и так было всегда. Ссылки внизу страниц ведут на wmf:Cookie_statement, а вовсе не сюда. Я написал участнику User:Jalexander предложение о том, чтобы залинковать там переводы, хранящиеся на Мета-вики (как это уже сделано для wmf:Privacy policy). Но всё равно автоматом никто на перевод попадать не будет. --Kaganer (talk) 14:10, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Wikimedia Commons[edit]

Hello. Regarding this edit, have the other language versions of this page been updated, per the changes I made? Green Giant (talk) 01:08, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

Green Giant, {{translation2}} is part of obsolete translation system. This is unused currently. Your changes of base page shoulds be approved by translation administrator, after that every page with translations will be updated, and all sections what was changed in source page, will be marked as "obsoleted". All translatorswho participated in the execution of any translation will receive a notification that the page has changed.--Kaganer (talk) 01:19, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
Ah, that makes sense. How do I request it then? Cheers. Green Giant (talk) 01:39, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
Green Giant, E.g. M:RFH, or call any from translation admins directly. --Kaganer (talk) 01:48, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

I always learn something new when you help with translation![edit]

Hi Kaganer! I just wanted to thank you for the edits like this one you've been doing today - I didn't know template:LM existed, or that the translation system could do things like handle translations of files. I'm so glad community translators like you are here to help out with translation-marking pages like the strategy pages in the best, most usable way possible (I'm particularly grateful that you are taking the time to do it even when doing it involves cleaning up not-so-perfect work staff like me have already done on it), and I wanted to let you know that your help doesn't go unnoticed, and that we are taking note of things you show us how to do better, so that we can do it right the next time we do it and hopefully reduce the amount of cleanup that falls to volunteers like you :) Kbrown (WMF) (talk) 12:30, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

@Kbrown (WMF): NP ;) Everything was done well enough. Just call me (or anothers translation admins) if you run into the need to check out the translation markup. --Kaganer (talk) 12:36, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
