WMDE policy RSS feed updateEdit

At, Leszek required an update of the RSS URL to Framawiki provided a config change, I deployed it and updated the RSS here.

I assumed this URL change was an upkeep trivial request, and so merged the change, but let me know if in the future you prefer to discuss such config changes and reach consensus before we merge URL updates (as previously done to *add* this URL for example) . --Dereckson (talk) 23:26, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

Editing and translating the Kreyol WikipedyaEdit

Greetings and sak pase. I am working on translating some of the content that is used on the Haitian wikipedya. Translation requests have been prioritized by others and I would like to translate specific language that readers see before I translate the messages that have been assigned by WM. For example, the very common word User should be "Moun kap itilize li an" instead of the French "itilizatè". It is difficult to translate the thousands of words and phrases when I have a different priority. Can the list of needed translations be prioritized by me instead of WP? Best Regards,

@Barbara (WVS): Actually, MediaWiki is translated at translatewiki. See —Justin (koavf)TCM 18:37, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
This I know - but I can't enter my translation of highly used words on the ht Wikipedya. I suspect that the words and phrases I want to translate are buried deep with in the list authored by WM translators. I want to find the terms to translate according to my priorities rather than what I am assigned. Regards,

I'm not quite getting it. You want to replace itilizatè, for example, with that whole phrase? StevenJ81 (talk) 21:08, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
