Confusing once-reverted instructions are back[edit]

I see that you once reverted away the quite confusing "instructions" at Category:Language user templates. Would you like to take another crack at them? (They were re-added by an anon editor [with an oddly misleading edit summary] two months after your revert.) I was going to beg on the talk page that they be re-written, but now that I see the page history... perhaps they should simply be done away with again? - dcljr (talk) 09:00, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

Removed the non-category-related text. (There were also several condemnatory discussions concerning the editor in question to not unilaterally add such "rules" at WT:BABEL, as I recall.)
If you receive further queries concerning use, just point them to WP:USERBOX. - jc37 18:49, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Milestone statistics[edit]

I've reverted your edit to Wikipedia:Milestone statistics. The people who maintain this table (including me) have chosen not to track as many milestones as the table at Meta (some relevant discussion can be seen in Wikipedia talk:Milestone statistics/Archive). If you'd like to lobby for doing things differently, please bring it up on the talk page. I help to maintain both tables and can vouch for the fact that the table here at Wikipedia is just as correct as the one at Meta, it just doesn't contain as many levels. - dcljr (talk) 02:55, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for alerting me to your reversion,
I don't udesrtand why you don't have a update of Wikipedia:Milestone statistics. Your numbers are very old, and I don't see the interest to have numbers very old. Now, there is 4,000,000 articles in English, no 2,000,000 !
But, if you think have numbers very old is good, it's your choice.
Excuse me for my bad english, but I'm a French contributor

Help needed[edit]

Hello, first of all I should tell you that I have looked all over wikipedia for a way to edit the table below and get it to display correctly but haven't found a way in any of the table help pages. I'm not sure if this is a valid request to post on your talk page but I would really appreciate it if you please looked it over and advised a solution. Basically, what I cannot achieve is for the header "Posición" to display up on top just like "Puntos", and if possible at all to mimic the colors displayed on the body of the table. My intention is to replace the table on

Thanks for your help. --Proxymo (talk) 04:15, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

Is this what you're trying to do? (I've also changed the column widths so they add up to 100%.) - dcljr (talk) 05:39, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Oh, no don't look the message for the Babel templates. There is in User language? Iggoul2 (talk) 00:02, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I don't understand your comment. Maybe you could say it in Spanish? Between the English and Spanish versions, I might be able to figure out what you're asking. - dcljr (talk) 01:09, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
Hellow, I tampoco entiendo you comment. If tengo razón sobre lo que me quieres decir, digo que me refiero a que the message's location is m:Meta:Babel. Pensabas que decía que the message's location is m:User language?
  • Green words is no translate word. You have translate the words in green color.
    Thank you Iggoul2 (talk) 00:44, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Sorry if me confundí in algunas words.
I pass the message to Spanish translation:
Oh, no, no busque el mensaje de las plantillas Babel. Hay en User language? Iggoul2 (Discusión) 00:02, 8 de junio de 2013 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Oh... I wasn't expecting English and Spanish in the same sentence! :-)

My translation:

  • Hellow, I tampoco entiendo you comment.Hello, I can't understand your comment either.
  • If tengo razón sobre lo que me quieres decir,If I am correct about what you want me to say,
  • digo que me refiero a que the message's location is m:Meta:Babel.I say that I mean the message's location is m:Meta:Babel.
  • Pensabas que decía que the message's location is m:User language?You thought that I said that the message's location is m:User language?

My reply:

Unfortunately, now I am not sure what message you are referring to. Yours? Mine? Another message that I or you were referring to? Maybe we should just start over: My answer, in English, to your original question is at m:Meta talk:Babel#Name. I assumed that you were asking why m:Meta:Babel is not related to the Babel language templates, so I tried to explain that it's because the discussion forum at m:Meta:Babel had that name before the Babel templates existed — the implication being that no one has wanted to change the name of the forum since that time. Since you requested an answer in Spanish, I used Google Translate to translate my answer (I changed a few phrases to try to get a better translation), and posted it on your talk page at es:Usuario Discusión:Iggoul2#m:Meta:Babel. The second sentence in my answer, starting with "En la parte superior", was not actually a response to your question, but instead was a general comment about how we (editors of Meta) could avoid possible confusion in the future by including instructions in other languages at the top of m:Meta:Babel about where the Babel templates can be found. (Currently those instructions are only in English.) Ironically, I think that part of my answer was what caused your confusion. If you are still confused, please reply here and I will answer here.
Español (~)
Lamentablemente, ahora no estoy seguro de cuál es el mensaje que se está refiriendo. ¿Tuyo? ¿Mío? Otro mensaje para que yo o que se refería? Tal vez deberíamos empezar de nuevo: Mi respuesta, en Inglés, a su pregunta original está en m:Meta talk:Babel#Name. (Asumí que estabas preguntando por qué X no está relacionado con las plantillas de idiomas Babel, así que traté de explicar que es porque el foro de discusión en el X tenía ese nombre antes de que las plantillas Babel existían — lo que implica que nadie ha querido cambiar el nombre del foro ya ese momento.) Desde que solicitó una respuesta en español, he usado Google Translate para traducir mi respuesta (he cambiado algunas frases para tratar de conseguir una mejor traducción), y publicado en su página de discusión en es:Usuario Discusión:Iggoul2#m:Meta:Babel. La segunda frase de mi respuesta, a partir de "En la parte superior", no era en realidad una respuesta a su pregunta, sino que era un comentario general sobre cómo nosotros (editores de la Meta-Wiki) podríamos evitar posibles confusiones en el futuro mediante la inclusión de instrucciones en otros idiomas en la parte superior de la m:Meta:Babel de donde la plantillas de Babel se pueden encontrar. (En la actualidad esas instrucciones son sólo en Inglés). Irónicamente, creo que esa parte de mi respuesta fue la causa de su confusión. Si todavía está confundido, por favor, responda aquí y voy a responder aquí.

Thank you. I guess I'm confused. Add section, is not on this topic but it's been spoken on the subject:

Response user[edit]

Oh, and to let you know something, when I answer here, put on my talk the {{Respuesta}} template . This template has been created for when users respond in their own discussion. Also if you always answer your argument, you can place the {{Respuesta usuario}} template. Then, other users will be advised of that you will answer in your discussion and receive the {{Respuesta}} template. But not if you wish to make an English version:

  1. Go to sandbox or es:Wikipedia:Zona de pruebas.
  2. Select a sandbox: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. Look if sandboxes color is red. If is red, please wait. If is green, go to green's sandbox.
  3. Insert code in footer of sandbox: {{subst:Respuesta usuario}}
  4. Save changes.
  5. Edit sandbox.
  6. Translate the Spanish words to English.
  7. Move the code to you talk page, say, this page. The code in the page's top location.
  8. Save changes.

Careful, do not know if there is a template here. Response template use in the Spanish Wikipedia, if template in this wiki, no can't use.
Iggoul2 (talk) 19:03, 14 June 2013 (UTC) PS (Postscript): Nor if multiple sandboxes in this wiki!

#switch in #babel[edit]

Use switch to order the babel table. It is also the same, no matter what code is used. You may use more complicated code to create and edit my pages. Thank you, but I choose not to shorten it. Iggoul2 (talk) 15:37, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Anyway, I can easily translate the comments by the translator of Google, but I need to copy and paste your comment on a new page, because as use Google Chrome, I asked if I translate English to Spanish pages, so give "yes" and I understand your comment, because it translates. Iggoul2 (talk) 15:42, 15 June 2013 (UTC)
It confused me in en-4, well yes it much English at a professional level, but I forgot some words in English and I got tired of translating. Also, keep in mind that I do not know all the words in English. Therefore, the en-4 was correct. Iggoul2 (talk) 15:49, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Bot BoulaurBot on OC wikipedia - WIKIDATA STUBS[edit]

Hi, let the oc wikipedia community decide please. My unapproved bot had more than 40 000 page created not reverted by local community (french commune...) and 200 000 edits.

On wikidata approved bot: 34 000 edits.

The content of the articles is from wikidata using mainly the INFOBOX: a lot of stubs, some with more informations.

PLEASE let the local community decide

Boulaur (talk) 04:51, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

My post at oc:Wikipèdia:La tavèrna#Bot created stubs is the last action I intend to take on the matter — and I only did that because of the particularly poor quality of the articles the bot was creating. (To avoid problems like this in the future, you really should modify what you're doing to enable your bot to create higher-quality articles.) Obviously, I have no control over what cross-wiki admins/bureaucrats might decide to do, but as I stated in my post, I have already left it to others to decide. - dcljr (talk) 07:32, 23 June 2013 (UTC)[edit]

Dear Dcljr, on your user page on mt.wikipedia you use an unresolved template Mudell:Nobots. Can we delete it? Thanks and regards Leli Forte (talk) 21:28, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Speed of light[edit]

Thanks for this edit. In fact, slower speed limits are known for spaceships, so your edit was not only more precise but more correct. —David Eppstein (talk) 08:25, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

Photo requests in Austin[edit]

Do you do photograph requests in Austin? WhisperToMe (talk) 02:20, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

No, sorry. - dcljr (talk) 23:10, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
Ok. I'll check to see if there are others in Austin who are interested in doing it. Happy editing! WhisperToMe (talk) 23:14, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
