I've found, for example that User, according to http://www.dsl.ac.uk/entry/dost/usar should be Usar?

@AmaryllisGardener Good morning. What's your opinion on this one? Should the file use Uiser or Usar? Thank you.

What timezone should https://foundation.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:DMCA_email be in? UTC? or should it remain in west coast timezone?

Because Scots is primarily a spoken (not written) language, translations vary from place to place. It's also hard to really have a direct translation for a lot of these since the words just aren't used in spoken Scots. In any case, based on how the wiki already translates these, here's what I imagine they should be:

$namespaceNames = [
	NS_MEDIA            => 'Media',
	NS_SPECIAL          => 'Special',
	NS_MAIN             => '',
	NS_TALK             => 'Collogue',
	NS_USER             => 'Uiser',
	NS_USER_TALK        => 'Uiser_collogue',
	# NS_PROJECT set by $wgMetaNamespace

	NS_FILE             => 'File',

If an admin blocks User:Bananas from User_talk:Bananas but the admin has the Prevent this user from editing their own talk page while blocked unchecked, what happens? which one wins?

I'm pretty sure we're going to make 'Edit their own talk page' inactive unless a Sitewide editing block is selected, it just doesn't make sense by itself.

To answer your immediate question, the user should *not* be able to edit their talk page in that configuration.
