Hi Az1568

I really don't understand the difference between {{done}} and {{published}} in the Phase IV deployment table. We have done almost everything required for the transition, both on usability wiki and on the local wiki. Please let me know --Shijualex 06:28, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Hey. If you take a look at Template:Status, you'll actually see that published isn't even listed there. We really just use "done" and "ready" for most things. However, I'm used to actually publishing translations... such as the ones on Meta and with CentralNotices since they do need to be published to the CN system. So I've sort of been using done and published out of habit. They both have the same meaning on the table. Sorry for the confusion. Let me know if you have any other questions. :-) --Az1568 07:56, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Central notice for Wikibooks

Is it necessary to use the informal grammar in the central notice? I'd suggest moving to "X is getting a new look" instead of "X's getting a new look" because the latter sounds incredibly stupid at Wikibooks where it's "Wikibooks's getting a new look". Adrignola 22:10, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

We've changed it. Thanks. --Az1568 22:52, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi! There is a liitle mistake in published version of ka :) There must be space betweem ვიკიპედია and სახეს იცვლის. See here :) Thank's!-- 05:41, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Oops. Fixed! --Az1568 05:44, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Thank's! :)) It was like wikipediaishavinganewlook :D )))--Gaeser 05:50, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

hehe. That's certainly not what we intended it to say. :-) --Az1568 05:57, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
Definitely! Thank's again :))--Gaeser 06:03, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Phase IV

I think now onwards, further addition of new languages to Phase IV should be stopped and should be moved to Phase V. I found that many of the newly added wikis added doesn't have any of the translations done. --Shijualex 06:21, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Yeah probably. But I'm going to hold off on doing anything until I've confirmed it with the Usability Team tomorrow morning. It's 11 PM here in SF, so everyone is pretty much asleep (with the exception of me). :-) We can move over any that are in the wrong section then. --Az1568 06:30, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
The plan is to deploy to all Wikipedia languages with >80% UsabilityInitiative localization and no critical blockers by June 30. The final list of languages for June 30 will be frozen June 28. Regardless of that, we should be running the "help us translate / find bugs" CentralNotice in all projects not currently using Vector. That's because we really need to get people's attention to a) complete localization, b) report issues, including issues that are specific to sister projects (e.g. specific extensions not working).--Eloquence 20:29, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Centralnotice on Italian sisterprojects

Hi, I don't think that those centralnotices are really useful on Italian sisterprojects (especially if they're actually in Phase V instead of IV as I suggested). You can point all Italian language feedback to w:it:Progetto:Coordinamento/Usabilità: we're managing sisterprojects, too. --Nemo 06:28, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Yeah I realize that. Sorry. But I can't really do anything at the moment - considering how late it is here. The people that can make these type of changes are asleep. I'll bring this up in the morning. --Az1568 06:37, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
Please see my response above: We want to get people to report any critical issues now, so we can work on them prior to the phase V deployment. That's why we need to run the "Please help" notice on the sister projects as well, as there may be issues that are specific e.g. to Wikinews and Wikisource, due to custom JavaScript, MediaWiki extensions, etc.--Eloquence 20:30, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

PO Centralnotice for hsb and dsb

Hi, Az 1568. You published 21 June 2010 the PO Centralnotice for Upper Sorbian (hsb) and Lower Sorbian (dsb). I translated the text as it is. e.g. without using the SITENAME variable. While publishing you evidently used the SITENAME variable, therefore the text of this variable became grammatically incorrect because the SITENAME must be in accusative: that's Wikipediju for both hsb and dsb, not Wikipedija. If you don't want to use the phrase without the SITENAME variable, the GRAMMAR template must be used:

hsb: Sy změny spytnył? Smy {{GRAMMAR:akuzatiw|SITENAME}}}} polěpšili.
dsb: Sy změny zawupytnuł? Smy {{GRAMMAR:akuzatiw|SITENAME}}}} pólěpšyli.

Please change it. Thank you. Regards, --Michawiki 20:03, 1 July 2010 (UTC)

I found out when you changed the source code of this message: 04:02, 23 Jun 2010. You can't simply change the source code inserting a variable without informing translators. There are a lot of languages that use a grammatical form. The phrase that was initially correctly translated became grammatically incorrect by your change. --Michawiki 20:46, 2 July 2010 (UTC)
Sorry. It was a last minute change that I was asked to make to all of the languages. It should be fixed now, please let me know if it's not. --Az1568 08:24, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Squid caches

Are you wmf staff. This problem should be fixed asap. --Issue 21:36, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Nope, but I could have someone else look into this. Can you provide me with a few more details? (Which wiki is your home wiki along with your username there, when did this start, and how long has it been going on for?) Thanks. --Az1568 22:28, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
It's a common problem on all Phase IV Deployment projects. It happens when you're not logged in... just browsing articles e.g. with Special:Random without user account. And the solution (probably) to the problem is purging all squid caches. It was done when (and other top 10 Wikipedias) was changed to vector. --Issue 08:17, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

Phase IV Deployment /cy added

I have translated the central notice for the Phase IV deployment to cy and added it to the list on Releases/Default_Switch#Phase_IV_Deployment, marking it ready for publishing. Do I need to request that this be published? It is really annoying having the central notice in English and it has taken a very long time for me to guess how to add the translation. Lloffiwr 20:16, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I'll take a look and publish the translations. Sorry about the delay... --Az1568 03:58, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Phase IV Deployment /fr added/revised

Will these be pushed out? It's really annoying to see an English banner message on a French wiki... Urhixidur 20:20, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Phase IV Deployment /tt

I have translated the central notice for the Phase IV deployment to cy and added it to the list on Releases/Default_Switch#Phase_IV_Deployment, marking it ready for publishing.Thanks, --MalTsilna 18:13, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

Done, thanks. --Az1568 03:03, 25 September 2010 (UTC)
