Wikidata does not fetch babel langs from Meta Wiki profile
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

I just asked to delete my user page on Wikidata so that it could pull from my Meta Wiki user page (through https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Help:Extension:GlobalUserPage).

The problem is, Wikidata is unable to fetch the languages I speak from my page on Meta: https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:Pikolas

The bug can be reproduced with the steps above.

This is because of <noinclude> tags.

I removed the <noinclude> tags, but it still doesn't automatically fetch my preferred languages. My workaround was to configure them manually: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Help:Wikibase/Configuring_languages

But I'm not sure if this means the bug is still there.
