JavaScript edit at ptwiktionary

Status:    Locally handled

Asking for temp permissions to edit a JS file at ptwikt: pt:wikt:MediaWiki:Langcode2name.js. A small correction to a string is needed. Thanks, Malafaya (talk) 23:15, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

Providing further details in case you would rather edit the file yourselves: where is says ['roa-rup', 'Aromeno', 'Armãneashce'],, please replace Aromeno with Arromeno. Thanks, Malafaya (talk) 23:18, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

Block request for Marajozkee

Status:    Done

A discussion is going on Bengali Wikivoyage to block Marajozkee due to his fraud activity. It is has been more than a week, no new comment found there. So need to close the discussion, after blocking him. I am requesting here to avoid conflict of interest, because Bengali Wikivoyage has no Admin except me and I am the proposer of the discussion. Thank you in advance. --Rocky Masum (talk) 15:16, 10 February 2021 (UTC)

Update global bot policy template

Status:    Done

Can someone with access rights update Template:Bot policy please. ---- Abuluntu ( talk) 08:44, 7 February 2021 (UTC)

@Abuluntu What would you wish to be changed, please? Martin Urbanec (talk) 15:53, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
I have added no.wikibooks to the table at Bot policy/Implementation#Where it is policy, and need help to update the template using the semi-automated script. I haven’t got the needed access rights. -- Abuluntu ( talk) 18:08, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: Do you know how to do it? Please let me know if I have to ask somebody, or somewhere else -- Abuluntu ( talk) 07:45, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
The page you linked, Bot_policy/Implementation#Where_it_is_policy, sounds to be manually created. I see that nowikibooks doesn't currently allow global bots (as in, the respective wikiset doesn't have that project).
Was there a community discussion about enrolling to global bot policy? If so, could you link it? Martin Urbanec (talk) 16:54, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for your helpful corrections. The proposal has been left open for objection, but I’m all alone in the project so there is no response. Here’s the linked discussion -- Abuluntu ( talk) 16:59, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: Sorry to pester you, but I was wondering if you where working on it. Regards -- Abuluntu ( talk) 13:06, 12 February 2021 (UTC)
Taking care of this one. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 18:53, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

Interlingua Wiktionary - Need Help

Status:    Not done

Hello Team,

I have been editing on Interlingua Wiktionary for a couple of months now and I do really need some help to continue. I looked for the administrator there to see if I could get some help from him/her, but I couldn't find the person who is in charge of it. I discovered two problems:

  • 1. all pages I create (and othes that already existed before I started editing) adds a category named Paginas con errores de script (pages with script errors). You can see one examble here. I really don't know what is that and how to solve this problem;
  • 2. when I try to create templates using a dash in the beginning (like this: Template:-sq-, to create the Albanian header for entries) I am not allowed to do it as the page in red link doesn't appear to do so. I need to follow all the other templates created like this model so avoid rework. Is this a problem that can be fixed?

As I said before, unfortunately there is no administrator there and I will need to come here frequently and ask for help.

Thank you so much in advance --Manandez (talk) 12:54, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

This page is only for admin action requests. I see none of them requested in this case. We don't answer tech support questions here. From your problem description, I think you should go to Tech to get a better answer. Closing. — regards, Revi 17:44, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

Sidebar customisation request for niawiktionary

Status:    Done

Hi, I'm from and we don't have any admin at the moment. Would an admin help us customise the sidebar of Please add the following navigation section for the community in the sidebar:

* Bawagöli zato
** Help:Lala wanura|Lala wanura
** Category:Fanolo|Ngawalö wanolo
** Help:Ngawalö templat ni'oguna'ö|Ngawalö templat
** Special:Categories|Ngawalö kategori
** Wiktionary:Nahia wamakori (bak pasir)|Nahia wamakori
** Wiktionary:Manga afo|Monganga afo
** Wiktionary:Angombakhata|Angombakhata
** Wiktionary:Sangai halöŵö|Sangai halöŵö
** Wiktionary:Bawagöli zato|Bawagöli zato

This would help our community a lot. Thank you in advance. --Slaia (talk) 20:20, 20 February 2021 (UTC)

Done at nia:wikt:MediaWiki:Sidebar. Now there is no link to the main page anymore. Maybe it should be readded? Also, is "Bawagöli zato" = Navigation? Because the standard translation for that is different at translatewiki:Mediawiki:navigation/nia. --MF-W 21:00, 20 February 2021 (UTC)
Sorry MF-W, I had wanted the new items to be added to the existing one instead of replacing them. Would you please do this again? The whole Sidebar would be as the following below:
* navigation
** mainpage|mainpage-description
** portal-url|portal
** currentevents-url|currentevents
** recentchanges-url|recentchanges
** randompage-url|randompage
** helppage|help
** sitesupport-url|sitesupport
* Community portal
** Help:Lala wanura|Lala wanura
** Help:Ngawalö templat ni'oguna'ö|Ngawalö templat
** Special:Categories|Ngawalö kategori
** Category:Fanolo|Ngawalö wanolo
** Wiktionary:Nahia wamakori (bak pasir)|Nahia wamakori
** Wiktionary:Manga afo|Monganga afo
** Wiktionary:Angombakhata|Angombakhata
** Wiktionary:Sangai halöŵö|Sangai halöŵö
** Wiktionary:Bawagöli zato|Bawagöli zato
Re: Bawagöli zato, it means Community portal (this should be the correct translation, but not yet corrected in the translatewiki). You're right about the navigation, the translatewiki is correct in that regard. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks. Slaia (talk) 08:38, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
Is it acceptable now? --MF-W 14:41, 23 February 2021 (UTC)
Hi MF-W, the menu items are ok, but one menu title (portal-url|portal) is not display properly, where Community portal stands. Is it possible to change that heading into either "Komunitas" (like in the Indonesian Wiktionary) or "Ewali zato"? That menu items are shortcuts to pages the community frequently want to access. I'd be grateful if you can do this for us, thanks. Slaia (talk) 15:21, 24 February 2021 (UTC)
Sorry, I forgot the first-level entries are not linked. Changed to Ewali zato! --MF-W 17:05, 24 February 2021 (UTC)
It's now perfect, --MF-W. Thank you very much. Slaia (talk) 17:26, 24 February 2021 (UTC)

Imports to wa.s

Status:    Done

Can someone take care of the request at oldwikisource:User_talk:MF-Warburg#Wallon_-_some_pages_to_export? I can't, because the wiki set for new wiki importers has already been changed (or change it back or give me temporary importer rights on wa.s to push the work back to me). --MF-W 00:23, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

@MF-Warburg: I just changed the wikiset setting. It's okay to contact me right away for something like this! :D Please let me know if your work is done. --Sotiale (talk) 09:27, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
I see that's what I get for betting on stewards' non-laziness for once :P Import done. --MF-W 19:31, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
