Base added a comment to T180775: $ symbol in translation.

No, you leave $link untranslated, but sandbox you translate, for example it would be [$link пісочниця] when translated to Ukrainian (and everything else is translated too).

Base added a comment to T180775: $ symbol in translation.

Dollar signs are translation variables (tvars) they are used to shorted some text such as urls ehich besides might be updated without the need of updating translations. They should be used in translation unchanged, for example when translating from English to Spanish $world must remain $world and not $mundo or $ world or anything else.

Base added a comment to T180071: Generate report of admins who perform many blocks so we have a list to invite to blocking consultation.

Perhaps something like top of blocks of people with more than N edits (e.g. 500) would reflect "social" rather than CVN related blocks better.

Actually people performing blocks in context of harrasment are not necessary top people by the number of blocks. In the top I suspect to be guys fighting vandals most actively, they are not necessary involved with more "social" blocks (though not necessary not involved too). Just a thing to keep in mind.

Base added a comment to T179991: Add a geo lookup service to WDQS based on the .map pages on Commons.

Label service is also very slow, like 2 times slower than to just query labels a normal way, considering that map data processing is probably more complex than just fetching a label I am afraid that it won't work for any real queries with current timeout…

Well I have encountered it with thank message, I guess on thank's part a good task out of this would be to provide more meaningful errors than "badtoken". As a user I am not supposed to even know any tokens exist at all. Information about failed session is at least providing some tip what to do.

Base added a comment to T178744: Minor problems with rendering the small print in English and Russian.

At least for MediaWiki translations there are messages which are marked as optional and which exacly are different kinds of separators, brackets and so forth which one does not need to translate to get the default but can if default does not work. I think it is what should be done with the separator in this case if that is possible.

Base added a comment to T178751: Provide an API so external tools can run SQL queries via Quarry.

It is also possible to run a bot a normal way (from personal computer or your own server) and ssh tunnel to Toolforge to run a database query (I believe it is easy to google how to do it for popular languages, I did not have trouble doing it in Java). It sucks comparing to direct access when you are running on Toolforge itself, the data transfer makes it so that sometimes it is faster to request stuff via Mediawiki API than like this (I am talking from experience), but it is still possible. Well, and it is the only way if you use proprietary components in your code so cannot comply with Toolforge rules. (Unless you create your own API there)

Are there some special requirements to marking of those pages? I opened a couple and see that they do not have <languages/> — is this deliberate? Must <noinclude> be used to add it? I can help with translate admin part if it is still needed but I need to make sure that the normal way of doing stuff would work well with dashboard.

About Translate extension… If it is a translate adminship part it is about I'd first do it for existing translate admins. I have a feeling that many translate admins from both sides (volunteers/staff) have not read or have not read carefully enough the documentation. (Though it looks sever to me with staff as those get the flags by decree and thus have 0 review, while with community process some at least are asked about the docs)

For example testwiki is not a very general educational resourse either, but it is still a wikimedia project. I do not see phab using another cms changing much. It could be arguable if phab were only accessible for logged in people (at least that was kind of an argument I heard on otrs wiki where people disregarded licensing policy as well), but it is not.

The Topic pages look deleted without admin rights but they look alive when you have admin rights.

Well, you can always trick someone. Just as you probably can shoplift and get away with it. That is not the point in case of 95%+ of cases.

An easy way would be to titleblacklist mp3s untill a mechanism is found :)

Each citation is unique OK but I do not see why it must hinder have something like "Mediawiki:Visualeditorwhatever-citoid-dashbetwixtnums" as a non-compulsory localisable message which then will be used in those situations instead of a hardcoded ndash somewhere.

I have no idea what this task is about as I do not use VE, but Ukrainian also uses — instead of – in all situations and «» for quotations. («“”» for two level). In Mediawiki localisation of stuff like this is done on TWN in non-compulsory messages, I guess rather than hardcoding typography for specific languages you should use that.

Hm, though it this case it looks that ns8 page was created through workflow state change, so this probably means that the problem you described exists even when people dance the tune the current system dictates, I was wrong.

Translate tracks CNBanner ns translation and skips direct additions to ns8. Perfectly not only should ns8 be autoedited on workflow state setting to Published for CNBanner but vice versa synchronisation should exist. Now it happens occasionally that people with ns8 namespace access fix translations directly, then someone fixes something else in CNBanner copy, that one gets published and this yields in the ns8 fix being overwritten. Awkward system really, as I see why people do those direct ns8 edits — it takes one action and not 2 + autoedit (edit CNBanner copy, set workflow state, "win" another edit on doing the latter action)
