T252343: Creating namespaces "portal" and "portal talk" on Javanese Wikipedia
@N219: I am asking you again to PLEASE follow https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requesting_wiki_configuration_changes (basically: setting the Wikimedia-Site-requests project tag when creating such site configuration requests). Thanks.
Before this is actioned as site config change... Is there any reason this shouldn't be done in MediaWiki itself, and the old name left as an alias?
Would the Javanese Wiktionary want/benefit from this?
Like, what is the difference betwen Panganggo and Naraguna?
Actually, this case is the same as T234792, where the word 'panganggo' is a loanword from Indonesian pengguna and not the direct translation of the word 'user'. In addition, 'panganggo' in Javanese has many meanings such as, how to use; clothes; etc. thus making this word ambiguous.
To avoid ambiguity, we then propose two words to the community 'naraguna' and 'kang nganggo'. 'Naraguna' comes from the words 'nara-' and 'guna'. According to tradition, we Javanese usually add the prefix 'nara-' to verbs like the English people add the suffix '-er' to the verb, to show person (like narahubung means contact person). 'guna' means use. So, Naraguna means 'the person who use (Wikipedia)' or simply, user.
We don't use term 'Kang nganggo' because emm.. community consensus. (We think this term is long).
16 years since the Javanese Wikipedia was built, but only recently have we found a lot of wrong vocabulary in it, so we feel we have to change it. maybe we will continue to work together for the next few weeks. Thankyou for your help.
