Add namespace aliases for zhwiki.
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Please add the following namespace alias for zhwiki:

  1. WT: -> NS_4 (Project talk:)
  2. MW: -> NS_8 (MediaWiki:)
  3. T: -> NS_10 (Template:)
  4. TT -> NS_11 (Template talk:)
  5. H: -> NS_12 (Help:)
  6. CAT: -> NS_14 (Category:)

Please also help to make sure the pages start with the new namespace title would be redirected properly to the old ones. (Maybe the namespaceDupes.php?)

Best regards.

At least some of these will conflict with interwiki keys:

mw -- mediawiki.org
tt -- a language code

Sorry for didn't noticed that. So just ignore these two, please.

Best regards.

cat interferes with the three-letter language code for Catalan and has been previously rejected, I believe.

H: for "Help:" seems a bit silly. You're saving three characters and possibly interfering with a future project code (q: for Wikiquote, h: for Wikifutureproject, e.g.).

Maybe this looks a bit strange, but it's a compromised way.

Sorry, but no community consensus for this one.

Discussion at local Village Pump: http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:%E4%BA%92%E5%8A%A9%E5%AE%A2%E6%A0%88/%E6%8A%80%E6%9C%AF#.E6.8F.90.E8.AE.AE.E5.A2.9E.E5.8A.A0.E5.90.8D.E5.AD.97.E7.A9.BA.E9.97.B4.E5.88.AB.E5.90.8D

CATE for Category? I suppose CAT is a better choice. Besides, there's no need to set the namespace alias T for Template because wikipedians could use {{tl|Template name}} as a way to link to a template page.

Closing as LATER, as there appears to be no community consensus. If and when there is one, please reopen and state clearly which aliases should be added.

I cannot find any deleted revision on [[zh:Special:Undelete/CAT:CSD]]; there should be some.

It's probably a bug of namespaceDupes.php.

I ran namespaceDupes again and it did nothing. I then looked at the database and concluded that namespaceDupes indeed doesn't process deleted revisions. I've filed this as bug 21898

Mass-unassigning shell bugs from myself to Rob; I used to do them once, but I
don't have time for them any more.

Not sure what still needs doing for this particular bug.

Removed "shell" keyword since this requires a fix of namespaceDupes.php in order to handle also deleted pages.

order to handle also deleted pages.

That is bug 10171, this bug is FIXED, when the other bug is fixed, it needs a run over all wikis to solve possible issues in all wikis, so this bug must not stay open for that.
