Talk:List of Wikipedias/Table now redirects to here. The following archive contains all the past discussion from that page.

This page in other languagesEdit

It would be better if, when you read this page in another language, the languages in the first column of the tables were written in that language, instead of English. So, in French, instead of "English, Spanish, German", the table should read "Anglais, Espagnol, Allemand". Lights and freedom (talk) 20:35, 19 May 2022 (UTC)

@Lights and freedom and Emaus: This might be more trouble to implement than it's worth. Emaus is the one whose bot generates the table that is used on all the pages you are referring to. Thay all transclude the same List of Wikipedias/Table (which, for some reason, has its own talk page, BTW). - dcljr (talk) 18:30, 26 May 2022 (UTC)
In case of ready-made functionality for automatic translation I can update the page content filling. But a consensus for this should be first. --Emaus (talk) 21:35, 30 May 2022 (UTC)

Propose redirecting Talk:List of Wikipedias/Table to hereEdit

I believe Talk:List of Wikipedias/Table should be redirected to here, since the regular bot updates to the corresponding content page (List of Wikipedias/Table, I mean) makes it difficult to "watch" that talk page. The infrequent edits to this content page (List of Wikipedias) makes it far more likely that comments here will be noticed by more people (note that 981 users are watching this talk page, while only 146 are watching the other one). Besides, most requests left here are about changing the table, anyway, so there might as well be only one talk page collecting such requests, not two. Comments? Objections? (In particular, Emaus, what do you think, since you are the primary "audience" for comments left on that other talk page?) - dcljr (talk) 00:53, 28 May 2022 (UTC)

  • As I see, there is no difference between a topics on these pages so the redirecting makes sense. --Emaus (talk) 21:26, 30 May 2022 (UTC)
    • OK, well, unless there are any objections, I plan to do this in the next few days. I'll just archive the content currently at Talk:List of Wikipedias/Table, add links to the archives of that page to the top of this one, and redirect that title to here. - dcljr (talk) 00:20, 18 June 2022 (UTC)
      • Done. As indicated at the top of this page, there is now a single archive of all the past discussion from Talk:List of Wikipedias/Table, replacing the yearly-archive system that had been started. There just wasn't enough content to justify separate yearly pages, IMO. - dcljr (talk) 05:36, 23 June 2022 (UTC)

Subpages for different languagesEdit

I just noticed Talk:List of Wikipedias/Table/he and Talk:List of Wikipedias/Table/vi. These are talk pages for language-specific subpages of "List of Wikipedias/Table". Now that Talk:List of Wikipedias/Table redirects to here, should the various language-specific talk pages (whether they currently exist or not) also be redirected to here? @Emaus? - dcljr (talk) 00:53, 3 July 2022 (UTC)
