Nikki added a comment to T226701: Add sju, sjd, and rmf to wmgExtraLanguageNames.

That might be coming from langdb.yaml... not completely sure, since it was added there over a year ago (link) but maybe it only started using the name from there once it was enabled somewhere else? It's not coming from wmgExtraLanguageNames at least.

Nikki added a comment to T223664: Process of adding new languages to wikiprojects without having to go through Wikipedia, translating the UI, etc..

For Wikidata, since labels form part of the UI,

How would we go about translating the UI for dead languages in order to use them as label languages? We have plenty of data for these types of languages that we can't use because of the UI requirement.

Nikki added a comment to T223664: Process of adding new languages to wikiprojects without having to go through Wikipedia, translating the UI, etc..

This is not the same as T165585 (Make creating a new Language project easier) or T158730 (Automate WMF wiki creation), because the process should not require a Wikipedia project to be created or the UI of any project to be translated

It's not a technical requirement. It's a process requirement by the Language committee. So this particular thing doesn't require any technical work, but a policy change.

Nikki added a comment to T144272: new monolingual language code requests for Wikidata (tracking).

@Amire80 Would all of what Wikidata wants (see previous comment) be allowed in the language-data database?

Nikki added a comment to T155420: Add monolingual language code mnw (Mon).

Is this still necessary once T201583 is solved? I do not know enough about the technique of the monolingual language codes.

Nikki added a comment to T198366: Add monolingual language code kld (Gamilaraay).

@Bluepossum Based on your edits, it seems like you are trying to add entries for words, like in Wiktionary. If so, you want to add lexemes not items (items represent concepts, not words). The page for adding new lexemes is https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Special:NewLexeme. This page is not yet very visible, probably because lexeme support is still very new and missing key features. After you enter Gamilaraay in the language field, you will need to select "mis" from the field which appears above it. It's not yet possible to link lexemes to their translations, so you won't be able to link the Gamilaraay word "buruma" to the English word "dog" or to the item Q144 yet.

Nikki added a comment to T143486: [feature request] remove sitelinks / update sitelinks on Wikidata when pages are deleted/moved on client wikis (all users).

Please bear in mind when fixing this that there are three items (Q5268366, Q16503 and Q4026300) that we have fully protected because we deliberately don't want page moves to be reflected in Wikidata. Those are discussion pages where some projects archive the page by moving the page.

Nikki added a comment to T189412: Granular protection for wikidata items.

I would really like to see a protection level which allows indirect edits like moving pages or adding sitelinks. I don't mind whether that involves changing how semi-protection works on Wikidata, or adding a new type of protection.

The hook wikibase.entityPage.entityView.rendered was added in T189599 which can be used when scripts need to run after the page has rendered, so this now fixed.

nn-hognorsk is a valid language tag (and the IETF subtag registration for hognorsk specifies nn as the prefix). There is already a request at T148887 for supporting it for monolingual text.

Nikki added a comment to T198907: Visually distinguish deprecated statements in Wikidata UI.

I use .wb-deprecated { background-color: mistyrose } (and .wb-preferred { background-color: lavender } for preferred) in my common.css for this. It works pretty well for me, except that the page has to be reloaded after editing ranks to update the classes. However I don't think changing the background colour on its own would be enough as a general solution, because it doesn't tell anyone why the background colour is different or what it means.

Nikki added a comment to T144272: new monolingual language code requests for Wikidata (tracking).

Now that I think of it, I'm not sure whether they are written anywhere :)
But a valid ISO 639 3 code is definitely a criterion. Is there anything else that Wikidata requires?

The criteria for adding a language to this database are pretty much the same as the general Wikimedia criteria. If anybody finds a discrepancy in the criteria, let me know.

I think this is the same as T171708. The en-gb and en-ca descriptions on Q1022019 are "family name", if you change those, you will probably stop getting the error.

I don't think adding monolingual text support will help. They appear to be trying to add labels to items, thinking that they are lexemes.
