Request for Adding "Tools" to MediaWiki:Edittools

Please add these to MediaWiki:Edittools: <translate></translate> · <languages /> · {{#translation:}} · <tvar|></> · [[Special:MyLanguage/]]. Just for clarification, {{translation}} should be replaced by {{#translation:}}. Thank you. R4356th 3,261 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 14:06, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

By the way, the Interface Administrators policy does not mention where to request this kind of changes. Could that page be updated and could someone clarify if I am at the right place, please? R4356th 3,261 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 14:10, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
R4356th This doesn't actually need a interface administrator, as any administrator on Meta can handle these requests. Interface administrators are only needed for edits to sitewide gadgets or CSS. In any case, Meta:Administrators' noticeboard is indeed the best location. Anyway, I've done this request, but your request is a bit unclear as I wasn't unsure if you only wanted {{#translation:}} replaced. If you wanted the other links added, can you please clarify where on the MediaWiki:Edittools page you want them added? Thanks. Dmehus (talk) 14:16, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
"your request is a bit unclear" Um... the topic or thread title states "Adding"? "If you wanted the other links added, can you please clarify where on the MediaWiki:Edittools page you want them added?" And why exactly? That should be admin-discretion. R4356th 3,261 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 14:20, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
R4356th Well, I just don't want to break anything. Should it be added above the charinsert tags? Dmehus (talk) 14:25, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
When you dont want break anything, why not just leave it for someone else? There is no need to have it done in one minute after request...--MrJaroslavik (talk) 14:30, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
Please refer to this. Thank you. R4356th 3,261 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 14:27, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
Okay, I've added it here. Presumably, we don't want to translate MediaWiki:Edittools, correct? So, I suppose we should discourage translations of that page? Dmehus (talk) 14:29, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
I think I've figured it out, so this seems to be Yes check.svg done now. Please advise if any further changes are needed / wanted. Dmehus (talk) 14:32, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── LGTM except for the fact that "·" is appearing as an edit tool which could be fixed. Also, using the nowiki tag was not needed as we could simply not mark the page for translation. R4356th 3,261 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 14:35, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

True. I included · was included within your code tags, so assumed that meant you wanted it included. I'll remove that. That's true about the nowiki tag; on the other hand, it doesn't hurt anything to have it, in case a page was inadvertently marked for translation. Dmehus (talk) 14:38, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
I see. Thank you very much. R4356th 3,261 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 14:53, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
No problem. Dmehus (talk) 15:11, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

Proposed policy for adding extensions and changing settings on Meta

Hello. For the community's information, I have drafted a local Meta RFC in order to resolve the contentious question of adding extensions/settings to Meta. Please check it out and let me know if you have feedback/add proposals before I submit it as an Request for Comment. DeeM28 (talk) 17:22, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

Candidate for patrollers.

Candidate for patrollers. Because I want to cooperate with the editing patrol. When I become a patrollers, I will mainly patrol Japanese editing. I think Japanese editing is safer if Japanese people go around. Also, sometimes I'm thinking of translating the edited content on google and going around the editing of foreigners. うざっきー (talk) 01:13, 5 March 2021 (UTC)

うざっきー Thank you for your interest in patrolling Special:RecentChanges and Special:NewPages, with a particular focus on Japanese pages. The only minor concern I would have is that you created, albeit in good-faith {{welcome}} user talk pages for users who've never contributed here. This was likely because we don't have any codified guidelines on when it's appropriate to welcome users. So, generally speaking, we prefer to only welcome users when they make their first constructive editing contribution to Meta. Secondarily, if you'll review the patroller guidelines, and indicate to me your understanding of them, asking any pertinent questions you may have, I can definitely consider onboarding you to the patroller team. Dmehus (talk) 01:18, 5 March 2021 (UTC)
thanks you. I read 「template:Patroller granted」. If you don't know what to do, you can check with the administrator.
Also, regarding pasting {{welcome}} templates to new users, every site that is always active "let's paste {{welcome}} to users who have posted records at least once." Because of the rule, if there was even one posting record, I would put it up and misunderstand it. I'm sorry. うざっきー (talk) 01:41, 5 March 2021 (UTC)
うざっきー That's completely understandable. You've demonstrated to me a capacity to accept and learn from constructive criticism of colleagues and other community members, which, to me, is most essential. Plus, we do need more Japanese patrollers and translators, so I'm going to Yes check.svg grant this request. I'll post the guidelines at User talk:うざっきー, and then grant the patroller group.

Resigning My Patroller Right

I used to enjoy helping out with the right but due to excessive drama starting to happen recently, I am hereby resigning my Patroller rights. Maybe someday I may consider requesting this right if the situation gets better. Please remove my right. Thank you. R4356th 3,261 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 16:10, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

Sad to see this. Will remove :/--MrJaroslavik (talk) 16:11, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
Thank you very much. R4356th 3,261 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 16:14, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
This feels like a quite impulsive and rash move and that I don't really understand why disagreeing with someone (which is nothing odd) must result in resigning rights. People have their differences, no one will ever agree on everything, I don't quite see why a resignation is necessary. I appreciated your work as a patroller and find it a real shame that you have decide to resign this right over one discussion. Reception123 (talk) (C) 17:59, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

Request for Deleting All Translations By Shaunak Chakraborty

All the translations done by @Shaunak Chakraborty: are filled with issues. They have many formatting issues and I suspect those are instances of unedited machine translation. Considering they have made 628 edits in the Translations namespace, I think a Phabricator task should be created requesting this instead of trying to do this monotonous work by hand. Thank you.
