Why <inputbox> Can't be used on this wiki: https:/ / ? Fazoffic (talk) 12:33, 12 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

1. I believe this request fits more in Community Portal rather than the Meta Community Portal
2. The InputBox extension is not enabled in mh:walawepedia:Special:ManageWIki/extensions. BlankEclair (talk) 12:44, 12 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request for Feedback: Translator inactivity[edit source]

Hi everyone,

There is no published policy regarding inactivity removals for translators. As such, Meta administrators have been considering what precedent to go off of, and we'd like the community's feedback. There is precedent mainly for inactivity removals around the 60 or 90 day period, but other options exist, such as 30, or even possibly, 180 (6 months). We'd like to hear what you think on the matter. BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 21:53, 18 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

60/90 is best IMO, it's a role that doesn't require an election but rather discretion. Having the bar this low wouldn't seem too detrimental. --Zeus, aka Blad (tcg) 03:34, 29 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
 Comment: I think it's a lot of work to review translators for inactivity. I only know one language and if I were to try to monitor activity in another language, it may not go so well.
Thus, I am leaning towards long periods of time such as 180 day period (6 months) because translation is not automatic.
I don't really know how the translator will break down the task, however the longer 180 day time frame should take some of the pressure off of the translator (pressure from completing an assignment on schedule and also be able to set a pace without risk of burn out).

Dead link on MediaWiki[edit source]

At the time of writing, the page MediaWiki (for future reference, revision 378427) says "For help with MediaWiki, see FAQ#MediaWiki or ask on the Community noticeboard", but FAQ doesn't have a MediaWiki section. BlankEclair (talk) 02:45, 27 May 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
