How can I become a Translator?[edit source]

I would like to help with translation. When I tried to translate the page "Help Center", it says to me to go on for asking to become a translator, but this page was deleted. --Daniele Pugliesi (talk) 09:42, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

I've added the rights to your account, and will take a look at fixing those pages soon. -- Void Whispers 21:18, 4 April 2019 (UTC)

Interwiki oddity[edit source]

The interwiki prefix Meta:, when used on Meta, does not redirect to Meta. It might seem absurd to allow editors to use an interwiki that does nothing but redirect to the same wiki, but I was trying to devise standard code for my signature on all wikis to point to Meta, and the one on Meta didn't work. The fix was obvious but you might consider whether this interwiki would be useful. Spıke (talk)23:29 4-Apr-2019

I think this conflict is caused by the Meta: namespace. We do also have m: that works on all wikis (including meta). Example: m:User:Void. I tend to use it for global renames, as I can link to the original request on all wikis without needing to paste in the entire URL. -- Void Whispers 23:50, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
Of course it would! Thanks for the lesson; I'll use m: instead. Spıke (talk)23:58 4-Apr-2019

But evidently, the part of my signature that is a template cannot transclude via an interwiki, so I cannot have other wikis look to Meta for the master signature but must maintain copies. Is this so? Spıke (talk)02:58 5-Apr-2019

User:Amanda[edit source]

Hi admins, I would make to make this edit on User:Amanda.


{{sockpuppet|user=Lawrence Prairies}}
[[Category:Sockpuppets of Lawrence-Prairies]]



Specifically, the edits that need to be made are to remove the category on the bottom of this page, and also change {{sockpuppet|user:Lawrence Prairies}} to {{Sockpuppet|user=Lawrence-Prairies}} in order to fix the category error. Also, I made a change on Template:Sockpuppet, that's why I want to make that edit request. Thank you. LegoMaster (talk - contribs - logs - uploads - global contribs) 12:28, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
