Request to add Assamese


I've made the main page in Assamese, বেটুপাত. Please add the link to the list. Or please inform if any changes are to be made to the page, or if the page has any problems. I would try to fix them so that the link is added here (in the template) IKHazarika (talk) 14:57, 11 July 2016 (UTC)Reply

Protection level


Could the protection level of this template be reduced to semi-protection? It was protected in 2005 at a time when Wikispecies was vandalised a lot, but now that WS is more peaceful a full protection may no longer be necessary. Korg (talk) 20:31, 9 October 2016 (UTC)Reply

Thank you! Korg (talk) 20:49, 9 October 2016 (UTC)Reply
@Koavf: I was wondering why I could not edit the template, but I figured out that it is transcluded onto the Main Page which is protected by cascading protection. I'm not sure what could be done now... Korg (talk) 21:19, 9 October 2016 (UTC)Reply
@Korg: Maybe nothing. We can transclude this onto the Main Page and then keep on transcluding it every time it is updated or remove cascading protection. —Justin (koavf)TCM 21:25, 9 October 2016 (UTC)Reply
Ok, thanks. As I am undecided about the issue, I'll leave it as it is. Korg (talk) 22:19, 9 October 2016 (UTC)Reply
@Korg: Really, Main Page is just made up of things which are individually protected anyway. No need to cascade, I think. Let me know. —Justin (koavf)TCM 22:25, 9 October 2016 (UTC)Reply
Ok, so it could be worth a try to remove the cascade protection, then. I note that most protections were done at a time when WS was in a different state, but things have greatly changed, so maybe there's not much to worry about. Korg (talk) 22:41, 9 October 2016 (UTC)Reply

Hi, I just translate the Main Page into Javanese. Can you add the Javanese page to the list, please?

Changes on jv


Hi again. I need admin help to change the Javanese page from "Kaca Utama" to "Pendhapa". As per voting on jvwiki, the term of mainpage is renamed to "Pendhapa". Thank you. Labdajiwa (talk) 08:48, 24 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Tommy Kronkvist: sorry, the java version has been placed under the name "Jawa", now it's duplicated. Thanks for adding Balinese.
Chinamoonroll (talk) 03:33, 30 September 2021 (UTC)Reply
@Chinamoonroll: there is one page titled Tepas (suggested by you above, according to Wikidata in Sundanese language, Basa Sunda: Q21447801) and one called Pendhapa (created in June 2020, added in April 2021, in Javanese according to Wikidata, Basa Jawa: Q21474049). Is the one suggested by you a duplicate of the old one, but listed in the wrong language? –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 05:37, 30 September 2021 (UTC).Reply
@Tommy Kronkvist: Isn't wrong, but I mean the link for the Javanese version in this template is duplicated, the one as "Basa Jawa" and the other "Jawa".
Chinamoonroll (talk) 10:00, 30 September 2021 (UTC)Reply
@Chinamoonroll: So which one should we keep: "Tepas" or "Pendhapa"? Here are th details:
  • The link named "Basa Jawa" links to a Wikispecies page with the file name Tepas. As I said before, according to Wikidata that page is listed as a "Wikimedia multilingual project main page in the Sundanese language". See the corresponding Wikidata page here: Q21447801, where you will again see a backlink to the Wikispecies page "Tepas", but also links to the "Tepas" main page in Wikimedia Commons, and to the "Sunda" main page in the Wikisource project.
In other words:
  1. At least one of the two Wikispecies pages is wrong, or
  2. At least one of the many pages listed at Wikidata is wrong, or
  3. At least one page in both Wikispecies and Wikidata are wrong.
Unfortunately I can't easily fix this problem, mainly since I don't know neither Javanese nor Sundanese. I'm sorry about that. I'll bring it up on the Translation Administrators' Noticeboard in order to get more help. I suggest we continue the discussion there.

Which sequence to follow?


I'm not sure how the language names are sorted by this template, any inputs? Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 01:13, 5 September 2023 (UTC)Reply

It should be really easy: alphabetical order by language code. —Justin (koavf)TCM 04:29, 5 September 2023 (UTC)Reply
