Where is your nice list coming from? :) VisualEditor/Newsletter/Translators hasn't been updated in a long while, but it's still there! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 17:35, 19 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Test for @ToBeFree. I don't seem to be able to make the sig appear on a separate line at the end, although it's possible to fake it by adding a non-breaking space at the end of the message.

Open this and zoom in to see where the labels will go.

@Omotecho and @Dyolf77 (WMF), would you please translate these labels for me? @Trizek, would you please check the capitalization of the French?

You should be able to open the page with and edit the table contents easily. These translations will be used to make non-English "screenshots" for the mw:Talk pages project/Usability work. The screenshots will show the very top of a discussion on the talk page. "Origin of pen name" is the ==Section heading== for the fake discussion. Everything else shows part of the software/user interface (e.g., the [edit] button). Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 21:57, 14 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, @Whatamidoing (WMF), almost finished the labels but one, "pen name": What we imagine a "Junior editor" be, as fresh as three-weeks or stayed a bit longer and under 500 edits ?
My question is in two part. In ja language, we have many borrowed words, or transcribed non-ja terms. (in en, you can imagine Manga for cartoon.) If I pick up everyday ja term, then I will pick a transcribed "ペンネーム" (ja).
Aside from the above, there is a jawp page for Pen name d:Q127843, and a section title is given meaning "Origin of pen name" so to speak. As the page gives as an equivalent term "筆名" (ja), rather old fashion but sounds somehow "you know literature", that will be my second choice.
FYI, template:infobox writer (tl:imfobox 作家) has a commented out hint for parameter " pseudonym= <!-- ペンネーム -->". Then, my first pick sounds good. Cheers, -- Omotecho (talk) 03:04, 15 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Omotecho, I think "Origin of pen name" is supposed to be about an article's subject. Imagine that people are discussing an author like Yukio Mishima. Someone might post:
==Origin of pen name==
Yukio Mishima chose his pen name when he was 16 years old. Should that be mentioned in the article? Does anyone know why he picked that name? ~~~
"Origin of pen name" is meant to be the text that shows as the subject heading for the section on the talk page. (It doesn't really matter what the text says, as long as it might be something that editors could talk about.) Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 03:10, 15 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
