What is Template:h:i? AnyFile 17:56, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)

It was an idea i had, but i think it might actually better be deleted. --TheDJ 21:54, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)

langs in h:f[edit]

Please do not remove langs from h:f . I have seen you removet it in Aiuto:Sommario. Please follew the procedure I am going to propose in Help talk:Help page footer templates AnyFile 13:08, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)

removal of langs parameter[edit]

I have check every page I found and I have not found any pages that use the langs parameter in the template h:f. I will going to remove it from template:h:f. If you belive that there are pages that need it and they will be damnaged, tell me. Consider that this not regards page with empty langs parameter like {{h:f|lang=|enname=xxx}}. Consider also that there is no need to remove the empty langs parameter from the help pages. After this change is made there would no more need to insert line as above (but they will still work) but it will enought to insert line as {{h:f|enname=xxx}}. The only problems that can arise is if there are some page that use a non-empty langs parameter to template:h:f. AnyFile 20:49, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Lang name[edit]

I have seen you have started inserting Lang name tmepalte to give the name of the language in the help page link template.

Since an editor who create a help page is suppose to know how his/her language is spell in his/her own language., I if there is no really need for it. It make the code more complicate to manage and understand. AnyFile 15:05, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I'm very pleased that you have started to use the language name templates, this means that some people think that they're useful. But maybe it's too early to begin using them because I want to make some changes to the list before it is used for "real" pages. I've to explore the alternatives deeper (but thank you for providing another possible use, the language code). To help launching the project nowadays it's better to translate the language names to your own language (currently they are a few names translated only to English and Spanish). And thank-you for your new templates and for adding more languages names! Regards --surueña 22:22, 2005 Apr 26 (UTC)
I wasn't planning on furthering the usage of the templates atm, mostly because i think the Handbook is still too much in a flux atm. But I think the Lang scripts might be useful and the reason is solely that the pure information will be more centralized maintained. The more data is duplicated over multiple pages the larger the maintenance and the error rate will become. It might look trivial, but many things have taught me over the last years that it usually isn't. This does however pose an interesting other question, and it is "How well will wiki handle very frequent recurring templates". --TheDJ 12:59, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)
I prefer the shorter version Template:Lan. What makes the long version worse is also that you can not use newline in templates like Template:H-langs:Namespace, because they are called in a list. A newline breaks the list.--Patrick 14:26, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)
No objections. I was just trying to keep the naming of the template easy and consistent with the already existing names. The exact implementation and possible short forms of it is not really important for me. It seems like a good idea.
To AnyFile: {{lan|ja}} is for me easier than 日本語 (ja), which I would have to look up and copy. Even without speaking a language, I may want to fix a link, e.g. to standardize if it only says "ja".--Patrick 14:34, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Interlanguage templates[edit]

Please see my question at User talk:Dcljr#Lang name templates and respond there. Thanks. - dcljr 04:15, 29 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Mobile version[edit]

Hello TheDJ. I am a administrator of the Basque Wikipedia (eu:) and we have problems with the mobile version homepage. It says that Homepage Not Yet Configured. How can we make a homepage? Can we fix that? Regards.

Please answer me in my eu.wiki talk page.--An13sa 12:13, 6 March 2010 (UTC)

Breton mobile homepage[edit]

Hey !
I'm an admin on the breton Wikipedia, and some users asked me if we could have a Mobile homepage of our Wikipedia. I found this page, but I'm not an expert on all that kind of operations. Could you help me please ? Thanks a lot. --Y-M D 20:10, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

Mobile Beta testing[edit]

Hi TheDJ,

Thank you for signing up to test the experimental features we're building on the Wikimedia mobile Beta site! We just released a few new prototypes you might be interested in trying out. Please keep in mind that since the Beta is a testing ground for early stages of feature development and design, you'll definitely encounter bugs and unpolished software – your feedback will help us understand what areas we should focus on as we build these out into real features :)

To explore the Beta, visit any Wikimedia project on one of the supported devices/browsers and opt into Beta (tap on top left navigation menu > Settings > Opt in to Beta). From there, you can:

  • Log in (via the link in top left navigation menu)
  • Browse some articles and watchlist/unwatchlist them
  • Check your watchlist (via the link in top left navigation menu)
  • Edit
  • Add images to articles without any images in the lead

(Again, keep in mind that everything on Beta is highly experimental, so check to make sure that your edits/uploads went through successfully!)

Please leave any feedback you have for the mobile team on the mobile Beta talk page. Let us know if anything is especially confusing or strange, and feel free to give suggestions for improvement.

Thanks again! Maryana (WMF) (talk) 22:39, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decitions[edit]

The Wikimedia Foundation recently created a new feature, "superprotect" status. The purpose is to prevent pages from being edited by elected administrators -- but permitting WMF staff to edit them. It has been put to use in only one case: to protect the deployment of the Media Viewer software on German Wikipedia, in defiance of a clear decision of that community to disable the feature by default, unless users decide to enable it.

If you oppose these actions, please add your name to this letter. If you know non-Wikimedians who support our vision for the free sharing of knowledge, and would like to add their names to the list, please ask them to sign an identical version of the letter on change.org.

I'm notifying you because you participated in one of several relevant discussions. -Pete F (talk) 22:22, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Easier file description[edit]

Regarding your comment to my proposal. I am using VicuanaUploader, third most used way to upload files to Commons. I am not using uploadWizard because my browser cannot process the amount of bunches Id like to upload.--Juandev (talk) 21:00, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

wishlist[edit]

Hello,

during the discussion of the 2016 wishlist you expressed interest in a proposal in the Miscellaneous category. Now the voting phase is nearing its end and you have not yet voted in the Miscellaneous category. Your vote may make a difference. Maybe you are interested in this proposals:

3 characters[edit]

Re phabricator:T165540#3337149, might as well make that 4 characters and have a fancy .txt instead. :) But sure, emerging practice and what not. --Nemo 22:02, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

Opt-out option to disable crosswiki search results[edit]

I had a discussion with Deb Tankersley about giving opt-out option (disabling the crosswiki search results) via user preference setup to other wikis. I was told that the Phabricator is not the best way but that asking communities of other individual wikis for a consensus (or something) seems to be the safer way. If consensus is needed, should the opt-out option be discussed locally or at Meta RFC? According to en:Special:GadgetUsage, 34 users have chosen to hide those results. --George Ho (talk) 07:42, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

I note that we have gadgets on English Wikipedia that are used by some 50000 people, and they are still gadgets. I can also say that on my list of things to do and long term worries, a specific whim of a dozen or so users is extremely low. The fact that we have gazillions of such smaller groups of whims that I need to run around and fix every single time, because we can't remember all of them is however very high.
Tech people generally want fewer preferences and so does design, so it's unlikely that Phabricator will get you anywhere on this. Besides we already have a gadget system, which allows you to work around it under your own responsibility. That basically means that if you really want a preference, you need to get a substantial interest by the community. There is no particular historic form for such a thing (mostly because it's pretty rare). The yearly community tech wishlist survey is a good option however (mostly because it creates a much more equal playing field in terms of prioritization of other things that the community wants and considers important in my opinion). —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 22:24, 28 July 2017 (UTC)
I can't communicate with local wikis without knowing their languages. That leaves me with either... Meta RFC.... or.... How can you conduct a tech wishlist survey? --George Ho (talk) 23:34, 28 July 2017 (UTC)

Your Wishlist proposals[edit]

Hey there! I'm afraid you have one too many proposals :( Per the rules, you can only make up to three proposals. Please decide which ones are most important to you, and the remaining ones can be archived, where they will continue to be visible and can be picked up by others. Apologies for the inconvenience, and thanks for participating in the survey! MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 21:14, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

Sorry to bug you, but did you decide which proposal you wanted to withdraw? You can just let me know here and I will archive it for you. All four proposals are excellent, so I'm sure it's not an easy decision. Again sorry for the seemingly silly rule, but we have to enforce it upon everyone :/ Thanks for your understanding! MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 18:08, 13 November 2017 (UTC)
No i haven't decided and I have 4 more, i'll figure something out later this week. —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 22:44, 13 November 2017 (UTC)
@MusikAnimal: would you please archive 2017 Community Wishlist Survey/Multimedia and Commons/Support 360 photo viewing ? —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 16:52, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
I've taken over as proposer. This one is too good to archive! If you want to let us in on your other ideas, we might be able to adopt them as well. MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 17:12, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
If you need to post more, I can adopt the diffs proposal. Max Semenik (talk) 23:15, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
