Template translation


Dydh da! I'm currently trying to copy succession box templates from English Wikipedia. Could you have a look at Skantlyn:S-new at some point to check my translations? (I've left the English in 'no-include' boxes) If you find anything else badly translated, please correct it too! Meur ras, Gazamp (keskows) 19:25, 10 Du 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Dydh da! I will absolutely have a look, meur ras. Are you someone who knows about templates, then? It's not something I've dabbled with yet, but I'd love to get kwiki some info boxes and things! --Gwikor Frank (keskows) 21:15, 10 Du 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Not really - just some basics I picked up and a little altering for translation or to make everything work. To be honest, I'm just trying to copy templates I would normally use on enwiki to here when I find that they're missing (I've been meaning to do the succession ones for quite a while, just it's quite a big job!). If there's any templates you had in mind though, I can have a go... Gazamp (keskows) 17:47, 11 Du 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Skantlyn nowydh


Hi again! I'm planning on making some more specific stub categories with almost copy and paste templates - could you check Skantlyn:Stock-tus-europa for anything I might have got wrong before I multiply any errors? Meur ras! Gazamp (keskows) 18:52, 2 Kevardhu 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Dydh da! Checked and made a couple of small changes. Also, my gut is to use "ty" rather than "hwi", but it's absolutely a matter of preference, so I leave it up to you. --Gwikor Frank (keskows) 14:27, 3 Kevardhu 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Splann! The 'hwi' has just come from the existing template I used as a base (Skantlyn:Stock-tus I think). I'll make a few more, so if you could keep an eye on what I'm doing every now and then that'd be great (if there's anything I think I've got wrong, I'll ping you). Meur ras arta, Gazamp (keskows) 18:08, 3 Kevardhu 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I'll try to keep an eye out, though if there's something specific in future, probably best to come and get me if you can because I may lapse! Also, while I've got you, I'm really interested in the statistics at the bottom of your user page, particularly the gender and racial balances. How do you do that, it's really cool! --Gwikor Frank (keskows) 21:08, 10 Kevardhu 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Brilliant thanks! I'll copy the code for the bars below with some explainations in it so you can modify it...
Gender balance
32 34
Men Women
I'll try to do one with more than two colours too when I have a moment later... Meur ras, Gazamp (keskows) 14:03, 12 Kevardhu 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Proposal X
10 60 30
Yes No Unsure
Have tried to explain in comment brackets how to work the code but if there's anything I've missed just ping me. Gazamp (keskows) 17:43, 16 Kevardhu 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Translations from Welsh


Dydh da! I've come across two pages (Peiriant torri gwair and Teneuo coedwigaeth) in Welsh rather than Cornish. As one of the only active Welsh-language editors here, if you feel like trying to translate to Cornish and merging the Welsh with the articles on cywiki that'd be great. If not, that's fine and I'll start the process of deleting them - just thought I may as well see if there's anything you can do with them. Meur ras, Gazamp (keskows) 18:33, 19 Genver 2021 (UTC)[reply]



Are you able to translate the links on the left? If so, please change Klassys to Categories for users who set the display language to English. Aqchampion (keskows) 05:40, 8 Me 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Aqchampion: - If I knew where to look in TranslateWiki, I absolutely could! It's strange that it shows up as Klassys even in English, though. I'll have a look at TranslateWiki and see if I can work out which of the many disparate sections needs changing, but if you could have a look too that would certainly help. Thanks for letting me know! --Gwikor Frank (keskows) 13:51, 8 Me 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, Thanks for cleaning up Dianne Feinstein. Would you mind explaining your edits here - with things like mer and ombrofyer, are they not gendered? Meur ras, Gazamp (keskows) 16:12, 5 Gortheren 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Gazamp: Hiya, no problem! So, feel free to revert the changes to mer and ombrofyer as it is definitely a matter of choice. My reasoning for making those edits are that the Cornish speaking community seems to be moving away from gendering professions. I don't know of many women within the community who would use "meres", were they a mayor, just as in English I don't know of many women who would want to be mayoresses. This is an area very much under discussion at the moment, there was actually a Kesva meeting last week about things like gender neutral language, professions and pronouns in Kernewek. So, yeah, especialy with mer(es) as she doesn't appear to use mayoress in English, I thought it a good idea to change as in most cases the gender of the agent is less important than their role. But it's absolutely no skin off my nose if you want to revert. Hope that helps! --Gwikor Frank (keskows) 19:34, 5 Gortheren 2021 (UTC)[reply]
No that makes a lot of sense - just good to know for future! Meur ras, Gazamp (keskows) 21:52, 5 Gortheren 2021 (UTC)[reply]



I left a message at the Tavern; great to see some subs done. Would anyone like to do audio do you think? I can help with editing. --JimKillock (keskows) 09:29, 16 Hedra 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hiya @JimKillock, sorry it's taken a while to get back to you, it's a very busy time of year here at Cornish Wikipedia is it's our yearly editathon. Hopefully I'll have time once that's over in December to get back to you about this, audio sounds really cool and I think I know some people who'd be up for that!

Just repeating my offer about any of these videos! --JimKillock (keskows) 16:59, 3 Ebrel 2022 (UTC)[reply]



I completed the improve subchallenge and the mini-challenge. See my user page for details. Aqchampion (keskows) 20:57, 1 Kevardhu 2021 (UTC)[reply]

How we will see unregistered users



You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Help translating


Can you help translate what I wrote? The articles are too short, but I can't translate it just yet. For example, Liv and Maddie is about identical twin sisters with entirely different personalities who are best friends. Dove Cameron plays both characters in the series. I am a fan of the series because it shows the friendship of both twin sisters despite their differences. I also like The Fox and the Hound for the same reason. The Fox and the Hound tells the story of the unlikely friendship between a red fox named Tod and a hound dog named Copper. The two friends struggle to preserve their friendship despite their emerging instincts and the surrounding social pressures demanding them to be adversaries, as they are enemies by nature. Also, Dove Cameron is my favorite actress and singer because of her roles on Liv and Maddie, as well as Descendants, Descendants 2, and Descendants 3. I just am a fan of film and series from Disney. But finally, if you'll notice, many Disney articles get deleted, but can they be rewritten as better articles instead? 2600:1700:53F0:AD70:84B2:8A4A:CAF6:6633 17:35, 7 Meurth 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hi. So, this is an odd one, because it really doesn't feel like you're a Cornish learner, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.
1) I have removed all the English sentences from your articles. We do not write sentences in English on Cornish Wikipedia except perhaps as quotations which would then be given in Cornish also. Use what Cornish you have. 'Bad' Cornish that is a good try is accepted here, English is not.
2) I do not have the time to translate for you sentences on Disney TV shows I've never heard of (even as someone who has worked with Disney in the past) when I am going full bore on the list of 1,000 vital articles. Do what you can.
3) Articles fully in English will be deleted. Articles partially in English will have their English sentences removed. We do not have a length or notability requirement here yet on Cornish Wikipedia so I'm removing the "suggestions for deletion" template from your one sentence articles. They will not be deleted. I am constantly telling our learners that anything they can manage is good enough and I will stick to that sentiment. However, I am encouraging you within the best of your ability to aim for at least five sentences per article where possible in order to move this Wikipedia towards a better standard of article.
4) Please make a user account here as that will help us help you.
5) If you want to improve your Cornish to better write these articles, I am happy to provide you with resources to do so.

The following links should give you an idea of where and how to start with learning Cornish. Good luck - but please try to learn. Several of the most prolific editors on Cornish wikipedia have not been learning long, but practise by writing articles.

Files need a source and a license


Hi! The files you uploaded need a source and a license.

For example the text "I created this myself" and {{Cc-by-sa-4.0}}. If you chose that license you could perhaps copy {{Cc-by-sa-2.5}} and just change 2.5 to 4.0. --MGA73 (keskows) 09:04, 18 Me 2024 (UTC)[reply]
