Include form name as $1 in message "sf createproperty linktoform"
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

The message "sf createproperty linktoform" ends with a colon and is followed by a form name. It should preferrably allow the name to be included as a parameter such as $1, so as to not force languages having specific word orders to twist their sentences in a way that allows the name to be at the end of, or behind, the sentence.

This was a documentation problem IMHO, the colon is not followed by the field name but by the text field itself, where to enter the text (which happens to be a form name).
I've copied MegaAlex's documentation to https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=MediaWiki%3ASf_createproperty_linktoform%2Fqqq&diff=5196984&oldid=4872066
I don't think it's necessary nor standard to let l10n twist the order of form fields in special pages, hence closing (feel free to reopen if I'm wrong); now that docs are clearer translators will just have to avoid positional references and so on.
