Overhaul original English messages of the QPoll extension
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

When translating the i18n messages of the Extension:QPoll, I found quite many which were hard to understand, or needed some guesswork, or having minor grammatical glitches in their English versions. While I could correct some, I feel not confident that I would be able to spot the harder to detect or more obscure (potential) errors and inconsistencies - if any are there. I do not know the extension, which is a handicap, and English is not my native language.

So I suggest that, an English native speaker who knows the extension well, should review its messages.

Thank you

I still haven't finished new version of the extension with much extended functionality. Most of code is already in (with some parts unfinished) however new features never were documented. I even forget details of new syntax myself. But I spent quite a lot of time on this extension, thus I still have a hope to write a documentation for new features, at least.

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:QPoll links to https://github.com/Dmitri-Sintsov/MW-QPoll/ so this needs to get reported in GitHub instead. There is no QPoll repository in Wikimedia Git either. :(
