Please continue discussions about the merits of renaming particular
languages' / language groups' sites on their respective tasks. This thread
is about the issues blocking the actual act of renaming.

FYI another new editor has brought up the issue of renaming zh-yue again. The discussion again resulted in a consensus to push for the ISO-639-3 code "yue" to be made canonical. (Permalink to discussion)
Sep 18 2017
A number of these requests involve renaming wikis where both the old name and the preferred name refer uniquely to one wiki, e.g. zh-yue => yue, zh-classical => lzh. Is it possible that in the meantime, searching for these in the Wikidata editing interface will return the existing database name? e.g. when I want to add a sitelink to yue.wp, I should be able to find it by typing "yue" in addition to typing "zh-".
(3) doesn't concern the vast majority of requests because the old URLs would be kept as domain name and interwiki aliases.
e.g. [[yue:頭版]] and https://yue.wikipedia.org/wiki/頭版 already work, but they redirect to https://zh-yue.wikipedia.org/wiki/頭版 and the rename request simply reverses these redirects.

I can confirm that I have received the moderator password and Simon has
received the admin password. Simon has subsequently made me admin and sent me the
new admin password. So I now have both passwords most recently generated by

accounts with sysop or more advanced privileges are allowed to try OATH at

Certainly, this task has merit, Special:OATH should be some sort of "menu", with various options that will probably need an extra OTP entering, allowing things like disabling completely, changing device, regenerating scratch tokens without changing device etc etc
hi @RobH - any progress with this?

I've ascertained that as of last week, neither @Phoebe nor Simon Shek knew the admin password, and none of the moderators knew the moderator password.

I noticed that the date format has recently changed from "25 九月 1997" to "25 9 1997". Is work being done on the date formatting? And are we close to getting ISO dates or language-formatted dates?
Aug 18 2017
I'll wait another week for the admins and other moderators to reply and let me know if they can get in. If not then I'll ask you for a moderator reset.
Were the moderator passwords reset in the 2015 global password reset?
Aug 17 2017
Hi @RobH . Another Wikimania has happened and it turned out that this issue remains unresolved, because @Phoebe and I are still receiving wikimania-l bounce emails but still don't have the administrator password.

To clarify, this ticket is about displaying and outputting dates in the language-appropriate format.

Thanks for doing this. I'd like to suggest that the "Configure" link be anchored to https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Help:Navigating_Wikidata/User_Options#Babel_extension to direct the user straight to relevant instructions.

This is essentially another facet of T106131. (T106131 concerns mediawikiwiki, this task concerns meta and commons.) The issue at hand is that the we want to encourage zh variant translations to be done as a single zh translation plus Chinese conversion tool.

Thanks everyone for the help. I read from aaa839 this morning that he had recovered his account.

@Verdy_p I agree with you.
As someone without developer access, I gather from the discussion so far (over 7 years) that we're solving four different problems of various importance:

The option to apply vs not apply default sort after choosing files seems to be exactly what I want to achieve with this task.
I think the crux of this problem is that when one batch-chooses files to be added to the upload wizard, the order of files is well-behaved on most desktop browsers but unpredictable on most mobile platforms. So I'm wondering how we can find a solution that will make UploadWizard auto-numbering useful for mobile users without breaking the desktop edition.

I'm not sure *always* sort by filename is a satisfactory solution. I think some users might want to manually arrange the files in their desktop browser so they'd be numbered correctly after uploading.
