My mistake

Please delete CNBanner:CommunityWishlist-CommunityWishlist-CNTranslationProposal1-title/qqq. I added translation to the wrong page. --আফতাবুজ্জামান (talk) 18:18, 10 January 2022 (UTC)

The following discussion is closed.

This page is purely original research, and I see no point to keep it here. Stang 22:06, 5 January 2022 (UTC)

That page was not "research", but rather intended for humour. I have addressed the concern by rephrasing it into an essay. While I would prefer to keep it, I wouldn't mind otherwise. Kind regards and have a nice day. Elominius (talk) 01:20, 10 January 2022 (UTC)
Seems in line with the other pages we have about editors, I think this can be humor and leaning keep. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 09:08, 15 January 2022 (UTC)

Tech/News/2022/08/ak

This translation has no links and can't be fixed. I'm not even sure if the text is a translation of the source. Several translations from user:Ohvet have already been deleted, and the user has been warned several times. They haven't taken the advice given into account. Thank you, Trizek (WMF) (talk) 16:46, 21 February 2022 (UTC)

@Trizek (WMF): Thanks. I've deleted the page. If the user is not translating pages correctly after being warned, we could consider suspending (via a partial block limited to the Translations namespace) their translation permissions (absent a better option). Please ask in RFH if we've reached that level. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 17:01, 21 February 2022 (UTC)
Thank you @MarcoAurelio. I will follow up there. Trizek (WMF) (talk) 17:06, 21 February 2022 (UTC)

sd wikinews pages

The following discussion is closed.

Out of Meta's scope. Don't think that there is a need to move this to incubator as it seems to be a low quality translation of wikinew's policy. --Minorax«¦talk¦» 16:54, 26 February 2022 (UTC)

Template:Humour

Duplicate of Template:Humor/fr. Little usage that can be replaced afterwards -or- we can redirect it to Template:Humor/fr. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:28, 17 January 2022 (UTC)

Replace uses and then redirect to Template:Humor. Use of the British English spelling is not by itself sufficient to indicate French. * Pppery * it has begun 16:47, 17 January 2022 (UTC)
Replace and redirect. As there are probably more people in the UK, Singapore, Canada, Australia, India, Ireland or really most Commonwealth countries than the total number of French speakers, I would expect that more people would probably end up looking for the English version.

    • @Hulged: following up here; the discussion above appears to be that there should be one callable template, {{Humor}} - which is in English, and that anyone using {{Humour}} should get {{Humor/fr}}. Are you expecting a different end result? If there is some other specific cleanup outstanding, please let us know exactly what still needs to be done. — xaosflux Talk 15:10, 21 March 2022 (UTC)
      Xaosflux, no. I missed something while writing to you. Everything looks good. This can be marked as resolved. Regards, Tartafs (talk) 15:24, 21 March 2022 (UTC)

SRC

Author requests speedy deletion, but I feel we should keep this as a useful shortcut. —Svārtava (t/u) • 02:33, 2 April 2022 (UTC)

Vandalism

  • Tagged for speedy deletion with reason: Cross-namespace redirect. I'm neutral because of the existence of a better shortcut WM:VN but also because I don't think it does any harm. Since it's a widely linked page as can be seen in WhatLinksHere and not a recent creation, I would like to see a consensus here before its deletion. —Svārtava (t/u) • 10:40, 5 April 2022 (UTC)
  • Keep. It might be good to convert it into a disambiguation page for e.g. Meta:Vandalism § See also or other pages that deal with vandalism. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:05, 5 April 2022 (UTC)
  •   Keep I use it myself sometimes. Useful enough. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 18:44, 5 April 2022 (UTC)

Don't think this redirect is necessary. Stang 01:56, 7 May 2022 (UTC)

  • I think this serves a good purpose. If we delete the page there will be a lot of links to $1 in the Translations: namespace, as a result of which, this page will show up in the Special:WantedPages. To avoid that, it should be kept, IMO. Hulged (talk) 04:01, 7 May 2022 (UTC)
