azb wiki is Unclear

azb wiki articles are Unclear and unmeaning for 99% of south azerbayjani speakers. many of articles are writen in north azerbayjani or turkish and we dont could understand them. how we could change this?--Alp Er Tunqa (talk) 17:39, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

You should raise this issue on azb wiki. Ruslik (talk) 19:16, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

The only difference between North & South Azerbaijani Turkish is in scripts. North Azerbaijanis write in Latin script and we are typing in Arabic script. The user AlpErTunqa claims by his words that 99% of South Azerbaijanis (Iranian Turks) do not understand the language of people of North Azerbaijan or Turkey!! --Arda Arpaçaylı (talk) 05:47, 2 June 2016 (UTC)

Ruslik is right. We on Meta can't decide how you solve language issues in your country. Tip: divide azbWiki in two parts more or less like the Norwegians have done. Anyways do that on azbWiki, not here. NPOV you know!  Klaas `Z4␟` V:  06:27, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

Please Help

  • I can't use my account for editing in Persian Wikipedia anymore. When I log in into the Wikipedia I see this Error: "Exception encountered, of type "Exception""
  • Can somebody Restore all default settings in all sections in Preferences at Persian Wikipedia (FaWiki) that may help to remove Gadgets, because sometimes i can use my account and enter only in special pages, this happens maybe because i installed one app in my Wikipedia. Anyway can somebody reset all of my account in Fawiki? Thanks Qian.Nivan (talk) 16:41, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
You are probably affected by phab:T119736. I'll see whether there is someone who can fix this for you. In the meantime, can you try the suggestion at en:Help:Logging_in#Login_issues_and_problems. --Glaisher (talk) 16:45, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
I tried all of these ways but they didn't work. Can somebody Restore all default settings in all sections in Preferences at Persian Wikipedia? Qian.Nivan (talk) 16:49, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
It is not related to preferences so that won't fix this. If the instructions at the help page doesn't help, I'm afraid you will have to wait for a sysadmin. --Glaisher (talk) 16:56, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
It looks like this is not related to that bug so I have filed phab:T137182 for further investigation. --Glaisher (talk) 05:40, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
Turns out that it was related to invalid timezone option after all. :) Can you try logging in on that account now? --Glaisher (talk) 16:24, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
Can you also tell us which "app" you were using and exactly how you changed it? It will help us with preventing more issues like this in the future. --Glaisher (talk) 16:27, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

What is hacking any one tell me. According to me if any person hack any system or any website or any social media with out user permission but under low enforcement this is called legal hacking.

If any person do hacking without user permission or without low enforcement hack system or any social media account or other websites this is called illegal hacking.

But I am doesn't understand in both term hacking is exist.

Hacking wikt:hacking. "Hacks" are creative solutions. Sometimes they are illegal. —Justin (koavf)TCM 20:05, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Academic works translations needed before wikimania.


I've finished a French academic work named Ethical drift with in Wikimedia movement and I will finish soon a other one named For a better economic justice with in the Wikimedia movement. I would like to translate this two works in English before Wikimania for sharing the contain with the whole community and maybe inspire discussion during the week. I didn't have time and competence to do it my self before Wikimania. Is that in this forum any person who can help me, starting translation or pointing a place where I can found this kind of help ?

All theorems, lemmas and propositions with simple provements. How about new wiki — WikiProves?



I am the creator of a wiki site — — the free encyclopedia of provements for all theorems, lemmas and other propositions from all fields of study.

There are lots of different propositions. You can find them in books, in scholl (university), in Wikipedia. Everywhere. And I think that is the main reason why we should pick them up in one place.

The important thing is that there have to be a provement for most of propositions. But the problem is that sometimes they are big, difficult, inarticulate or missing at all! It would be really cool to give simple (or at least understandable) provements to such propositions.

WikiProves mission — arrange all theorems, lemmas and propositions with simple and evident provements

The site already has more than 90 provements.

I would like to listen your opinions about this idea. Please, leave your Support/Against opinions on proposal project discussion page.

I am a student. I really like to share knowledge with others and explain things in plain language. When my university life stated I did not have time to make movies for my educational YouTube channel and there was no way for me to share my knowledge (yes, sharing with others is like a habit). I had to study a lot of math wich is full of different propositions. At first, I started to write provements in my notebook. But I thought it is old and not really effective. And then I suddenly came up with an idea of a project which is now called WikiProves.

P.S.: I apologise for my English. I am from Russia. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by CMTV (talk) 17:35, 1 June 2016‎ (UTC)
