Small-project notes

Hiya Mxn, I used to end my addresses with galactic and universe coordiantes...

Would you be interested in writing a short review of changes to small language projects, perhaps once a month? An update on what those projects are doing, which are active, which users have joined in with enthusiasm. Let me know, Sj 18:48, 16 February 2006 (UTC)Reply

See User talk:Sj.

Thanks and invitation

Thank you very much for opposing the Simple English Wikibooks closure that was proposed on m:Proposals for closing projects. I see that you've been a contributor there in the past, which is really great. We would love it if you became active here again. I know you're probably busy on vi.wikipedia and here on meta, but what do you say? --Cromwellt|talk|contris 06:52, 2 June 2006 (UTC)Reply

Coolness! We'll be happy to have you when you get the chance! --Cromwellt|talk|contris 00:06, 9 June 2006 (UTC)Reply

Trust in Wikipedia

this is Cathy from Hong Kong working on a research about trust on Wikipedia. I wonder if you would kindly contact me at researchingmedia@gmail.com? I'd like to chat with you about Wikipedia of your language. Would you kindly drop me your email or IM (Skype, MSN, AIM or ICQ)? It wouldn't take more than ten minutes, but it would help enormously for us to understand the overall trust-based social landscape of Wikipedia. Thank you!

Sysop rights

Hello, Mxn
as a result of the unanimous election held on this page, you've been granted sysop status. Please list yourself in the sysop box. Thank you, M/ 16:47, 23 July 2006 (UTC)Reply

Category tree for IS

See Notandaspjall:Torfason.

Thanks for your pointer, it did indeed work, I'm not sure what I did wrong earlier. I'll look into translating it in the future. -- 20:41, 10 August 2006 (UTC)Reply

Election notice

Hi Mxn, I hope you are enjoying summer holidays. I found recently there was no Vietnamese translation of Election notice. Last year there had been a translation. Since Vietnamese Wikipedia is one of top 40 Wikipedias, I guess there are some numbers of eligible voters (and theoretically editors who can claim candidacy). Would you have an interest to inform the Vietnamese speaking community about the Election? --Aphaia 09:46, 16 August 2006 (UTC)Reply

Translation into Vietnamese

Hi Minh, i am looking for the vietnamese page Wikipedia:Translation into Vietnamese There is no interwikilink on en:Wikipedia:Translation into English. Reg. Mion 23:11, 5 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

See User talk:Mion.

Thanks Minh, I made a request to translate Wikipedia:Translation into English on the guestpage to a Vietnamese version for interwikilinking. We have to start at the beginning. reg.Mion 16:56, 6 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

See User talk:Mion.

Hoi Minh. i made the request on the requested articles page, now about the other page, translation by language, its a perpect page to attract translators by language, most translators are only interested in the section they are srtong in anyway, its difficult enough to kickstart the translator group, in dutch we made a line on the welcome template, like have alook at the page "requested articles" and the page "articles to translate", which changed the contributions from 1 in 4 days to 4 on 1 day. a bit better. ,ok, thanks for the help, reg. Mion 20:55, 6 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

See User talk:Mion.

Hello Minh, I agree, nice system, a ticket system, however, you can't control the amount of resources, aka the number and activity of translators, so, with a ticket system you're sending out expectations about delivery time for the translation, in reality, the translator will take an article that appeals, some articles take 1 to 2 years. Secondly, there are users on interwiki familiar with the interwiki system about translation and will request quickly on a similar format, (which will trigger vietnamese translators to respond) anyway, another option is to do both, let the ticket system retrieve the information from the request for translation page. Well, feel free and wikiwiki.Mion 00:06, 7 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

See User talk:Mion.

He Minh, About:The ticket system will take care of displaying it for, say, two weeks, and then it'll get archived if no one displays interest in starting the translation. I think the 2 weeks are to short, if translators go on holiday, or start a new job they might be inactive for a few months and then return, common is to archive them after 1 year, good thing would be that translators will clean up their own section, say French to Vietnamese, because they feel responsible for the language they are translating in. Just give it a go, usually someone stands up and takes care of the page. reg vi:Thành viên:Mion.

Dag Minh,

If its any help from the top 10 the french is the most advanced fr:Projet:Traduction/Demandes, (and the most active, before I dropped 20+ articles in the list there where almost no red links on the page) the most friendly top template for foreign visitors in this top ten is the dutch page: nl:Wikipedia:Vertalen naar het Nederlands. reg . Mion 00:43, 17 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

See User talk:Mion.

-:).Mion 11:59, 17 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

I forgot to mention: The Dutch version/page is a mess because comments are added on the page itself, the french solved it by creating a proper protocol fr:Projet:Traduction/Protocole de traduction, moving translations in progress to fr:Projet:Traduction/Traductions/En cours for proofreading, (it was ment to work but not everybody knows it). and creating the templates for the translators to prevent deletion of the article in an early stage of the translation. fr:Modèle:Traduction en cours for more templates fr:Catégorie:Projet Traduction,.

The whole setup is very inviting, sort of: Welcome to the translator corner, please fasten your seatbelts, and welcome to the club. reg. Mion 13:53, 18 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

"Transbabel" template

Hi, Mxn, would you like to put Transbabel besides babel templates? It indicate you as so-and-so lang combo translators and help to generate a translator list automatically.

Thank you for your consideration! --Aphaia 17:17, 12 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Translation Request (2 sentences)

For the front page of the Novial Test Wikipedia it would be nice to have a Vietnamese translation of the following 2 sentences:


Welcome to the Wikipedia in the Novial language!

You can read about the international auxiliary language Novial here.

Saludos amigo (asking your advance)

Greetings from Cambodia. Sorry I disturbe you. I just have created a template for the Khmer language:

You added this message to my talk page: "Please stop interfering with the voting process at Wikimedia Meta-Wiki. If you continue to vandalize pages, you will be blocked from editing this wiki. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 03:21, 23 October 2006 (UTC)" So...uh...what?

Someoneinmyheadbutit'snotme vandalized Wiktionary/logo again after you posted the warning. I believe that a block is in order. —Lifeisunfair 04:47, 23 October 2006 (UTC)Reply

What are you talking about? I'm a major supporter of Wikimedia and I would never vandalize a page. Someoneinmyheadbutit'snotme 21:45, 25 October 2006 (UTC)Reply

Yeah, I was having problems that day with the session timing out and quitting in the middle. I didn't realize it did that. One time I actually did try to revert it but it only made it worse. Could someone lend my support to the tiles logo for Wiktionary? Someoneinmyheadbutit'snotme 11:02, 26 October 2006 (UTC)Reply

Hi, Mxn, there is an issue with : [[1]], i suppose the cloacked contribution from en:User: comes from the tech section, which i can't check, so maybe the better way is to go through meta and request every wiki to mention it in the naming/technical restrictions. My question on this is, what would be a proper place on meta to do so ? reg. Mion 19:51, 28 October 2006 (UTC)Reply

Hi, I was looking at the statistics -- can you tell me where the language names come from? Kinyarwanda should be "Kinyarwanda" in English, and "Ikinyarwanda" in Ikinyarwanda ... Robert Ullmann 11:52, 1 November 2006 (UTC) (rw.wikt sysop, rw:User talk:Robert Ullmann)Reply

Unpatrolled edits

Hi Mxn. Note that your edits aren't being flagged as patrolled now; you can change this in your preferences (Preferences > Editing > "Mark edits I make as patrolled"). I'd like and appreciate it if you toggled that. :) -- mzlla 22:11, 12 November 2006 (UTC)Reply

Wikipedia portal

Hello! Thanks for adding on Chinese to the search bar, but could you change "搜尋" to "搜索" which appears the same in both traditional and simplified. The search was pointing to the Swedish Wikipedia, maybe change it to

<option value="zh" lang="zh" xml:lang="zh">中文</option>

. Also maybe switch to pt "Busca" followed by sv "Sök", and perhaps change them into a single line? I don't know how to change them into a single line, but everything else is done on Www.wikipedia.org template/temp. If it is convenient with you, please synchronise the two. Thank you again! --Shibo77 23:15, 12 November 2006 (UTC)Reply
