Author: xenowiki

Description:
Several past discussions have enjoyed consensus to import from other wikis. The most recently seeks to import from Nostalgia and Meta, the prior ones from other languages.

I realize these must be added individually, so I'll just list the ones that are currently using more than 50 templated translations attributions.

de, es, fr, it, pl ( http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Xeno/sandbox&oldid=289399214 )

Importing the history would allow us to pass the full attribution without these.

Enabling all languages, or allowing stewards to configure them as suggested in https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14264 would be great.

The only concrete request I could see here was to add Meta and Nostalgia, so that's what I did.

Done.

I've just made a relevant proposal at Enwiki relating to the newly released historical database dumps: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(proposals)#Restoring_long-lost_edits_using_the_newly_released_historical_database_dumps

This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
