  •   Question: Is it possible to wrap such notices inside -{ ... }- tags on chr-wiki? Non-Crimean-Tatar text should be wrapped inside -{...}- tags on crh-wiki, or else they are affected by the script converter (and can become 'Konkurs "Vıpuskniki i nastavniki Rossii 2019" // Pişite stati o vıdayuşçihsâ prepodavatelâh i vıpusknikah universitetov Rossii i poluçayte prizı!' — which is not how it should look).
    This is a problem with all non-Crimean-Tatar notices, not just this one, but I don't know where I should ask about this. Хтосьці (talk) 08:31, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
    Thank you for pointing out! Unfortunately I couldn't find documentation on this. Of course, we will try to follow your edits (I noticed some where you add this construct), but any information would be handy - could you please help to find it? Dr Bug (Vladimir V. Medeyko) 17:23, 15 November 2019 (UTC)

Central Notice admin commentsEdit

I've prepared the banner and a translation interface [1]. To keep us from maintaining multiple versions of the same banner, I'd prefer if you can translate the banner inside the interface, so MediaWiki can automatically display translated banner versions. As soon as you insert all the translations, ping me, so I can enable the banner. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 08:29, 29 November 2019 (UTC)

  • Thank you! As far as I see, and as far as I consulted others, you did everything is necessary, so I just nitpicked a bit. So the campaign seems to be ready? Dr Bug (Vladimir V. Medeyko) 05:14, 1 December 2019 (UTC)
    •   Done Please accept my aplogizes for the delay. Best, --Martin Urbanec (talk) 18:08, 7 December 2019 (UTC)
      Martin, thanks a lot!--Ctac (talk) 19:29, 7 December 2019 (UTC)
