Yea more help would be great! I was just following pages through to begin with. A visual editor would be great! Might be easier if we find a better form of communication, especially if there's going to be a group of us. Discord or Skype maybe?


Login problemsEdit

A while ago I told you about some login problems. They are ongoing! I'm going to try to get a screenshot of the problem now... --Cassolotl (talk) pronouns: they/them 11:04, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

I tried to replicate it, and I can't. :( But it's still borked! I'll try to get a screenshot next time and post it here. --Cassolotl (talk) pronouns: they/them 11:12, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

@Cassolotl: mmh, well, try to get a screenshot if you can, and I will report it. Happy to have you back here! :) --NeoMahler (talk) 13:59, 12 June 2017 (UTC)
I think I already told you this somewhere else, but: login problems appear to be resolved! --Cassolotl (talk) pronouns: they/them 13:52, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

Deleting Template:Content_warningEdit

That template was in use in several pages. Do you plan to replace it? Because now those are redlinked. Falkirks (talk) 16:45, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

I think the reason "What links here" said that is because the cache hadn't been updated. Falkirks (talk) 16:46, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
@Falkirks: I think I will replace all templates using {{ambox}} or {{mbox}} for {{notice}} when the cache updates. I didn't think about that. The templates are now restored, but I guess that the redlinks will be there until the cache updates. I'll be more careful next time! --NeoMahler (talk) 17:13, 4 August 2017 (UTC) domainEdit

I have the domain which can be configured for this wiki. If you want to do this you would need to contact miraheze ( and ask to use LetsEncrypt Falkirks (talk) 17:04, 9 August 2017 (UTC)

@Falkirks: ok, I'll take a look at it tomorrow afternoon or Monday, when I go back home (currently on vacation with limited internet connection) --NeoMahler (talk) 15:07, 12 August 2017 (UTC)
@Falkirks: I have sent the email. I assume that your domain already points to Miraheze's nameservers? --NeoMahler (talk) 11:30, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
@NeoMahler: Yes, I set that up. Falkirks (talk) 14:33, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

Glossary of Russian gender and sex terminologyEdit

Glad to know you liked my edit of the Russian glossary, because I myself had second thoughts afterwards, when I looked through the other glossaries with non-Latin scripts. Should we rearrange all of them? I could definitely do it for Chinese for example, listing the entries by the radicals and stroke numbers of the first character(s), in the way they would be in a Chinese dictionary. But does that make a lot of sense in a wiki that is basically in English? Wolle (talk) 18:10, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

@Wolle: in the case of Rusian, maybe the headings could be <Cyrillic character> - <Latin transcription>. I don't think this is possible with Chinese though, since it doesn't use an alphabet. Since we also give the transcription, I think it would be good to offer ordering based on both the original Chinese writing and the Latin transcription. By the way, do you know if the glossary uses Mandarin or Cantonese? --NeoMahler (talk) 19:28, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
Have a look at the Russian page. Do you think this is good now? For Chinese, my knowledge of Mandarin is pretty basic and that of Cantonese non-existant, but the Pinyin transcriptions given clearly look Mandarin, "他" is Mandarin, but not Cantonese. So, I can't guarantee that there is no Cantonese mixed in at all, but it all looks very Mandarin to me. BTW, there is an inconsistency: Sometimes the simplified spelling (Mainland China, Singapore) is given first ("酷儿; 酷兒"), sometimes it's the traditional one (Taiwan, Hong Kong, China towns all over the world) ("雙靈; 双灵"). Of course, this can be a neat way not to take sides... Wolle (talk) 22:35, 1 May 2018 (UTC)
@Wolle: the Russian page is good, thanks! I think we should be consistent, placing the traditional spelling before the simplified one (or viceversa) doesn't seem disrespectful to me. Thanks for pointing that out too! Maybe it could be formatted as a table: it not only helps to separate traditional from simplified spelling, but it also automatically sorts in alphabetical order taking Latin as a reference (but only if the user clicks the small arrow next to the column title). I don't know how the automatic sorting works for Chinese characters, though. Do you think this would be better? --NeoMahler (talk) 14:26, 2 May 2018 (UTC)
I've rearranged the Chinese list in the following order: "Simplified Chinese; Traditional Chinese (Pinyin transcription) English" (even for the cases where there is no difference between simplified and traditional). I don't know how to format a table with automatic sorting, but if you do, you will be able to do it with this uniform sequence. Once there is a table, we can test how it sorts the Chinese entries. Wolle (talk) 22:16, 2 May 2018 (UTC)
@Wolle: done, to sort based on a column just click the small black arrows next to the corresponding column title. There's some sort of sorting going on in the Chinese columns, but I don't know what it is based on. --NeoMahler (talk) 08:20, 3 May 2018 (UTC)
I haven't checked it line by line, but it looks like the kind of sequencing you would find in a dictionary (by radical first, then by additional stroke number). So, I think it's fine. Wolle (talk) 19:59, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

@Wolle: cool! Thanks for the suggestions :) There are still other glossaries for languages that don't use the Latin alphabet. I'll try to format them using the same type of table. See you around! --NeoMahler (talk) 21:07, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

Can you block

They seem to be just being generally unhelpful at Ambonec. Falkirks (talk) 01:08, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

A bit late, but blocked for one day --NeoMahler (talk) 06:30, 18 May 2018 (UTC)
