Soul_Train added a comment to T290163: Multiple inconsistent User namespaces at Altai Wikipedia (Участница vs Туружаачы).

By the way, when we switch to the Altai interface/language in “Preferences/User profile”, there is no form for “Use feminine terms when possible (e.g. "her contributions")”, only “Unspecified” and “Use masculine terms when possible (e.g. "his contributions")” — I think its another bug, but you should know.

So, Arsenekoumyk obviously cannot provide evidence of the need to enabling the instrument of transliteration for the Kumyk language. Can we expect more from an indefinite locked puppet?

I won't answer to this nonsense, cos Soul_Train is an admin with a lot of bias and rich history of abusing admin-power, where things are against his personal outlook.

First, it's a lie. You will not be able to prove this in any of the projects in which I was or at the moment hold the administrator access — namely in the Buryat, Bashkir, and Lezgi Wikipedia.
Second, moving to personal attacks instead of trying to prove the need to use the Latin alphabet in a language that is based exclusively on the Cyrillic alphabet does not add arguments to your position, rather the ​opposite.

And one more thing, about the time zone. I think that at the time the request was created, the Altai Republic and Omsk Oblast were in the same time zone (UTC+7), but there were a few changes in the mid-2010s. As a result, there is only one region in the Asia/Omsk time zone in Russia - the Omsk Oblast itself. And the Altai Republic now belongs to UTC+7 — this is Asia/Novosibirsk (=Krasnoyarsk Time).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krasnoyarsk_Time
The closest valid timezone is Barnaul — centre of the Altai Krai. In the past, the Altai Republic was part of this region.

But the community is absolutely discouraged by this mention of the “South”. I reassure them that they can use the correct name within the project.
Here is the Constitution of the Republic of Altai: http://docs.cntd.ru/document/304200009
«Государственными языками в Республике Алтай являются алтайский и русский языки» [The state languages in the Altai Republic are Altai and Russian] (Article 13)
Someone once in ISO added the word “South” to counterbalance of “North,” and this error has been spreading ever since. It is not correct.

“Wikipedia Southern Altai” — please, do not use such term, this is simply Altai language, not “Southern”. There are many small languages in the northern part of the Republic of Altai, but the only standard norm is Altai language. That's why the Incubator project of “Northern Altai” language has no perspectives because we should create at least three more projects for those Northern Altai languages (Chelkan, Kumandy, and Tubalar/Tuba).

I opened a discussion. There is only one native speaker in the Avar WP, so the discussion is unlikely to be very active :)

Soul_Train added a comment to T201982: Creating Cyrillic to Latin transliteration for Kumyk language.

Strongly oppose. Kumyk writing is based on the Cyrillic alphabet. The Latin alphabet project of 1991 remained as just a project and hasn't been officially adopted anywhere. The author of this request should have spent more time on the development of the Kumyk WP in Incubator — this is a much more important issue than the Latin alphabet that none of the Kumyks use. Here is the site of the Kumyk Scientific and Cultural Society in the Kumyk language with a huge number of materials: http://kumukia.ru/adabiat/index.php You will not find any Latin there. Moreover, the Language Committee will receive exactly the same conclusion from any scientist specializing in the Kumyk language. Latin script is a private initiative of a small group of people that has nothing to do with the realities of the literary written Kumyk language.

Soul_Train added a comment to T194211: No localized Chechen letter for WikiEditor toolbar buttons is provided in Chechen Wikipedia.

The requested glyph would appears to be "Ӏ" which is CYRILLIC LETTER PALOCHKA (U+04C0).

We use sans-serif fonts for icons, but there appears to be an exception for italic-i, presumably because a sans-serif I is just not recognisable out of context.

As far as I remember, there was a problem with sorting of the letter Ё in Russian Wikipedia, but it was a long time ago and I don't know how this problem was fixed.

Amire80, thanks for your comment and your attention.
Answers from the Bashkir native (User:З. ӘЙЛЕ):
“1. Й - Yes, it should, because some names beginning from the letter Й.

  1. Yes, you're right.
  2. Yes, there are few words beginning from Ы. And even a pair of surnames. If we need to set the sorting strictly according to the Bashkir alphabet, then let's do it. Surely, some letters will be “empty”, but I think that's okay.”

Soul_Train added a comment to T94665: Clarify short month names messages; remove genitive from Chechen dates.

Well, as I understood, Umar requested about changing system messages in Chechen version—from [Month-name]-gen to simple [Month-name], because [Month-name]-gen (Genitive case) used very rarely in the Chechen language. So, after that we can save right genetive form in all -gen messages: январехь, февралехь, мартехь, апрелехь, майехь, июнехь, июлехь, августехь, сентябрехь, октябрехь, ноябрехь, декабрехь. After that, {{CURRENTMONTHGEN}} will shown as апрелехь, but in other places April still be simple апрель, without genitive ending.
