Deployment has been delayed in favor of development of InternetArchiveBot v2.0 which will be using a new global engine to support wikis more easily.

Thanks for your patience. Do you think you could gather a couple of translators so we can get IABot prepped for approval? We need to configure the bot's setup for this wiki.

I need the bot approvals page to get the approvals process going.

With that being said can you answer the following questions and translate the following statements?

To translate:

  • External links modified ({{subst:CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{subst:CURRENTYEAR}})
  • Hello fellow editors,\n\nI have just modified {linksrescued} external links on [[{namespacepage}]]. Please take a moment to review [{diff} my edit]. If you have any questions, or need the bot to ignore the links, or the page altogether, please visit [[:m:InternetArchiveBot/FAQ|this simple FaQ]] for additional information. I made the following changes:\n{modifiedlinks}\nPlease refer to the FaQ for information on correcting errors with the bot.\n\nCheers.
  • External links found that need fixing ({{subst:CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{subst:CURRENTYEAR}})
  • Hello fellow editors,\n\nI have found one or more external links on [[{namespacepage}]] that are in need of attention. Please take a moment to review the links I found and correct them on the article if necessary. I found the following problems:\n{modifiedlinks}\nWhen you have finished making the appropriate changes, please visit [[:m:InternetArchiveBot/FAQ|this simple FaQ]] for additional information to fix any issues with the URLs mentioned above.\n\nThis notice will only be made once for these URLs.\n\nCheers.
  • Trouble archiving links on the article ({{subst:CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{subst:CURRENTYEAR}})
  • Hello. During the archive process, the archive returned errors for one or more sites that I submitted for archiving.\nBelow, I have included the links that returned with an error and the following error message.\n\n{problematiclinks}\nIn any event this will be the only notification in regards to these links, and no further attempt will be made to archive the links.\n\nCheers.
  • {link} is found to be dead. Recommend adding {newarchive} to the original URL.
  • {link} is found to be dead. No archive was found.
  • {link} is considered to be dead, however has been found to be alive. Recommend removing the dead flag from the URL.
  • Added archive {newarchive} to {link}
  • Replaced archive link {oldarchive} with {newarchive} on {link}
  • Corrected formatting/usage for {link}
  • Added {{tlx|dead link}} tag to {link}
  • Removed dead tag from {link}
  • Modified source for {link}
  • {problem} with error {error}
  • Rescuing {linksrescued} sources and tagging {linkstagged} as dead.
  • Notification of errors encountered when attempting to archive links
  • Notification of altered sources needing review

Questions:

  1. Do you want talk page messages?
  2. Do you use dead link templates and archive templates?
  3. Where are your cite templates?
  4. What is the typical formatting you use for time on Wikipedia and what other formats do you use, even the least popular ones?

It is preferred the questions and translations be answered and done here, but feel free to respond at https://ar.wikipedia.org/wiki/ويكيبيديا:الميدان/تقنية#I_need_some_willing_translators! as well.

Finished

  1. Do you want talk page messages?

Yes, and if we can create page for any user don't like to receive this notification. (The user can add his/her username to this page, and then the bot pass it) + to add a note under this talk page messages (if you don't want to receive such notification please. do...etc)- I can translate it also if you write it.

  1. Do you use dead link templates and archive templates?

I "think" yes, but can you explain or give me an examples?

  1. Where are your cite templates?

Cite web template, do you need others? (cite book, cite journal..etc)

  1. What is the typical formatting you use for time on Wikipedia and what other formats do you use, even the least popular ones?

Please explain this question more.

Hello @Cyberpower678 and everyone

  1. Do you use dead link templates and archive templates?

I "think" yes, but can you explain or give me an examples?

Yes, we do. The dead link template is قالب:وصلة مكسورة while the archive template is قالب:أرشيف نقاش (we have also قالب:أرشيفات)

  1. Where are your cite templates?

Cite web template, do you need others? (cite book, cite journal..etc)

  1. What is the typical formatting you use for time on Wikipedia and what other formats do you use, even the least popular ones?

Please explain this question more.

Strictly dd : mm : yyyy with a few notes:

  1. Never use mm : dd : yyyy
  2. Never use a leading zero (either in day or month or year)
  3. Never use the format yy (Year should be always yyyy never yy, so, use 1995 but never 95)
  4. Arabic Wikipedia also uses the Islamin (Hijri) calendar, see Help:Extension:ParserFunctions#time with the same notes (no mm : dd : yyyy and no leading zeros, etc.). Default is the Gregorian calendar.

Review:

Here is an example of what is done actually on Arabic Wikipedia.

The result in references section is like this (taken example: reference #10 in Irbid article).
