From the site contributors' perspective, it remains a valid proposal to
lock the sites temporarily (with advance announcement), copy the entire
database, repoint the domain names and interwiki prefixes, then resume

Thanks for closing. Seems to be solved by a separate, coincidental change
(the addition of zh redirect magic word 重新導向 was undone altogether),
probably something to do with T296188.
Aug 12 2022
@Stang It is also a Wikimedia-Site-requests - fixing this bug will ideally also include adding the correct localization of the REDIRECT magic word (跳轉). If you want me to open a subtask for it, I can.

I see that the badges have been created but my attempt to add the badge to a sitelink to a redirect was rejected. What is the status of this task?

I'd very much welcome this proposal: copy all of the existing zh-yue.wp
into a new database called yuewiki / yue.wikipedia.org . Once we decide on
a plan I should be able to help iron out the issues from the front-end.

This has recently been brought up again at the Cantonese Wikipedia. (discussion here)

Thank you @matmarex . Yes I'm aware that the effort to fix T103635 will
likely fix this as well. The academically interesting observation, that
adding the colon only works when creating a link without highlighting text
first, is perhaps useful for the developers and also outside the scope of
T103635, so I started a new thread about this behaviour.

Chipping in: I agree that we should use "unlink" icon rather than "rubbish
bin" icon for removing a hyperlink.

I'll be interested in participating in this small wiki toolkit hackathon. At the Cantonese Wikipedia we've been trying to build bots to generate league tables of best contributors and automate some routine maintenance, and it'll be nice to see whether other wikis have done similar things so we don't repeat ourselves.

Hi all. I think we do need a central discussion thread to make design decisions for Mobile VE, and I don't mind continuing here.

I tested these on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Android 8.0.0. Chrome and
Samsung Browser gave the same behaviour.

Yep, it works now, thank you!
Mar 26 2019
Ah, I'm very sorry. No I wasn't using the beta app. I'll wait till the
proper roll-out and test again.
No this has not been fixed: e.g.
Mar 14 2019
Thanks. I take your word for it that editing a section on the same page
will be *faster* than loading the section editor on a fresh screen. The
design intent is to reduce client load by putting as little of the page as
practical in edit mode.

@ppelberg / @Whatamidoing-WMF : Sorry for the British understatement. By "fine" and "alright" in (1) VE-Gboard interaction, (2) formatting and linking, and (3) Citoid, I meant that all features I tried behaved as expected, and to my satisfaction.
Feb 13 2019
A few thoughts so far.
Feb 8 2019
@Whatamidoing-WMF : Deryck here. Am up for trying it myself and inviting other Cantonese Wikipedia editors to take part. What should I do?

Please, please, please don't ever rename yuewiktionary to zh_yuewiktionary.
It is zh_yuewiki that should be renamed yuewiki, not the other way round

Actually there is already a separator: a spacebar.
The spelling variant ambiguity caused a knock-on problem: a number of property proposals for phonetic transcriptions (for languages whose orthography doesn't give much information about pronunciation, e.g. Chinese) have been rejected with reasons along the lines of "they should be spelling variants". Some clarity is needed on this.

@Tgr: Can you please confirm what the latest state of affairs is? Has
unblock-self been removed from all WMF wikis? Are blocked sysops allowed to
block the sysop who blocked them, as of now?

There's a parallel discussion about this on the Wikitech-Ambassadors mailing list, where an interesting idea was raised:

Hi. Just adding a comment to say that the geonotice maintainers on the English Wikipedia also use wp-world to produce a map of existing geonotices.
Sep 5 2018
Thanks James, that sounds reasonable. I think Ryan's proposal is a fine
solution - we can allow sections to be edited while freezing references
that are reused elsewhere on the page, preventing them from being deleted.

Great. It looks like the bot hasn't edited anything since last week's tests
though? Is it supposed to start scanning mainspace pages for dead links to

Agree - the language tag on Wikidata should be made to align with ISO 639 even where the siteID doesn't.
I've given it autopatrolled + confirmed flags for 24 hours and it managed to save the pages. I think the test worked. @shinjiman - I think this bot is good to go.
I did a small batch run with a few featured and formerly featured articles:
I've edited 3 of the translated messages in my big post above per @Roy17 's comment on https://zh-yue.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:城市論壇 after I posted my translations here yesterday.
Aug 22 2018
I agree with the comments above that until a separate machine translation engine is available for Cantonese, it can be useful to display a machine translation from a non-Sinosphere language to Modern Standard Written Chinese (MSWC) when the target language is Cantonese. This is because Cantonese and Mandarin share the vast majority of technical vocabulary; the lexical similarity rises when one considers MSWC which actually incorporates significant amounts of Cantonese vocabulary. In addition, the fact that most existing machine translation engines don't distinguish between the different kinds of Chinese languages means that the machine translations themselves are somewhat influenced by Cantonese anyway (being treated as a subset of Chinese rather than a standalone language).
Aug 21 2018
I don't think it's formally approved yet, though I don't expect any
Okay. Here are all the answers for the translations and questions earlier in this thread:
@Cyberpower678 Will you please explain how these messages get used:

Most wikis have retained the built-in MediaWiki feature where trailing
brackets are stripped when a page is saved:

The issue seems to be in pywikibot class wikidatabot.create_item_for_page , which takes a page (from a pagegenerator) and auto-creates an item for it.

@Mvolz Which templates' templatedata did you copy from enwiki? I think there are 4 (or 5?) templates and only a subset of them got copied, but I lost track...
