Icelandic Sheepdogs[edit]

Hi Reinhardt!

I improved your russian article about "Icelandic Sheepdogs" because it was not good enough to name it as "article", so I had a choice - either delete it or improve it. I decided that it's better to improve it :) Indeed I'm not suach a dog-fancier, at least I have no dog at home, but when I was a child I had a German Shepherd, he was really smart dog.

In Russian Wikipedia there is a lack of articles about dogs, I hope it will be changed soon.

Pictures of your dogs[edit]

  • I looked around the website, and didn't see any that were better than the one nominated for featured picture status. Just look for more opportunities to take more pictures with a good camera, in good light of the entire dog, preferably in some sort of great pose, like in the nominated picture. It was just the grass in front of the dog that I found distracting. And, the higher resolution, the better. - [[User:Bevo|Bevo]] 05:28, 25 Sep 2004 (UTC)
Thanks Bewo! I moved your answer to my talks. Regards Gangleri 12:27, 2004 Sep 25 (UTC)

re:dog photos[edit]

I think you need to read the featured picture guidelines, basically a featured picture must be technically good and make a significant number of folks watching say "wow". Don't take it personally that your photo is rejected. Dunc_Harris| 12:42, 25 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Most perfect magic squares (1)[edit]

answers to User talk:Robinh#Most-perfect magic square:

Halló Robin, I saw the article and want to say Halló! At [1] ( the name is David Brée not Bree. I worked also on these squares and read about the work of Dame Kathleen Ollerenshaw and David Brée later. I was contacting Harvey Heinz some weeks ago but could not find the work of Ollerenshaw and Brée. Do you know where to get this book? I stoped working at [2] ( about four weeks ago. I generate only some straight forward patterns. Just take a look. Regards Gangleri 07:53, 2004 Sep 27 (UTC)

Hi Gangleri
thanks for these comments. I'll change Bree to Brée when I get a minute. The book is not available at Amazon, although there is a listing for it (
I know your webpage quite well! I'm particularly interested in magic hypercubes. I am writing a suite of magic square tools in the R programming language; do you know R?

answers to User talk:MacGyverMagic/WikiMagic/Gangleri:

I should've seen those entries from you ages ago. Thanks for contributing. Anyway, I haven't had time to read through the entire thing, but from a quick glance I think some of it could fall under Mathematical magic. I'll archive your work in a subpage of the page it was originally posted on, to keep the page itself clean from article type entries. The WikiMagic talk page is for discussion only.

Don't let me moving your work, stop you from editing it :) [[User:MacGyverMagic|Mgm|(talk)]] 19:26, Sep 30, 2004 (UTC)

Featured picture candidates resolution and size[edit]

answers to User talk:Angela now User talk:Gangleri/archive 01#Featured picture candidates resolution and size:

Hi. I don't think I really am the best person to ask since I don't really care about the resolution as long as the size is at least 300px width for picture of the day. In my opinion, the vast majority of images on Wikipedia are completely unsuitable for print, so objecting to candidates on that basis is not something I would do, although Eloquence and others have done so in the past. I expect as high a resolution as you can manage would be best, but I have no strong opinion on this and can only suggest you look at some of the other featured pictures and see what the standard is, but I expect it varies widely. Angela. 23:28, Oct 1, 2004 (UTC)

Interlanguage categories[edit]

answers to User talk:Angela now User talk:Gangleri/archive 01#relatated to categories in different languages:

Hi, I think adding interlanguage links to categories is very useful and I see no reason not to do this. I realize there are difficulties in finding categories in other Wikipedias, and I don't know of any page that attempts to make this easier. However, it would be a very worthwhile project to create something like a page which aims to give translations of the words used for category across the languages, and also promote interlanguage collaboration. I guess this is what you've started at eo:Vikipediisto:Gangleri/farendaĵoj. Meta: would be the best place for a cross-project page where people could help with this. I think it could be maintained simply as a wiki page rather than a database, but perhaps I don't quite understand what you are intending to do?

The Multilingual speedy deletions page already gives translations for the {{delete}} tag, so perhaps something similar could be set up for other common tags.

Personally, I like the idea of using the same icon across projects to help people know what the template is, but I think you'd find it difficult to convince people across projects to use the same icon, or even to use an icon at all. See Template talk:Delete#Image poll for example.

Icelandic Sheepdog[edit]

Hi! You contacted me at the Swedish Wikipedia about the Icelandic Sheepdog and asked me if I had one. Yes, I have a shorthaired cream and white. // Liftarn


answers to User talk:Io: and Norse saga:


I am pleased to meet you. All the examples you mention on the page

should indeed be an oe-ligature. The two ligatures were pronounced differently in Old Norse, although they later merged in Icelandic. Oe-ligature was the result of an umlaut with ó as the original vowel, whereas ae-ligature was an umlaut of á. As for browsers displaying or not displaying characters correctly, I would advise you to go to

and download their latest stable version. It beats Internet Explorer by leaps and bounds.

I'm going to watch a tv-programme now, but I'll get back to you later.

All the best Io 22:03, 7 Oct 2004 (UTC)

As I am curious ...[edit]

answers to User talk:Io: and Norse saga:

... how did you come to develop an interest in Icelandic? If you need any pointers regarding that language, just post them on my talk page. I'm equally fluent in German and English so you can pick the language. (I envy you your knowledge of Russian, however. It's long been a goal of mine to learn one Slavic and one Baltic language, but you know how it is, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. :) Cheers Io 18:21, 8 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Hi there[edit]

answers to User talk:OlofE#It is early morning:

Hi there! First, there's precious little dating for early runestones. There are quite a few that are of the oldest varieties, my guess would be between 300-500 of them (though one could look at hard data instead of guessing, but I don't have it at hand). How many of those are still standing in their original position is just impossible to know but hardly more than a couple dozen. I'm pretty bad at Norwegian stones so I better not guess at the status of that stone.

"My page" - Heh, I'm not sure which page you're talking about here. Assuming it's not something outside wikipedia, I'll guess it's the futhark page, which I did indeed start, long, long ago - however, I cannot in any way claim any glory for what's on that page now. I don't think a single word remains of my writing:-) In fact, "futhark" was just a redirect to another page last I looked. So - I'm glad you enjoy it but don't thank me, talk to all the editors of the page (dozens of them, IIRC). The article has a discussion tab as well where you can discuss its contents with whatever authors are active on the article. Finally, pardon me for being slow in answering, I'm not very active on the English wikipedia nowadays (whatever time I have available to spend on wikipedia goes to the Swedish edition). Cheers, // OlofE 13:30, 12 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Muhammad al-Idrisi (former Idrisi)[edit]

answers to User talk:Dbachmann#Arabic names and Talk:Muhammad al-Idrisi:

Man sollte sich wirklich auf einheitliche Umschriften einigen, nicht nur fuer Arabisch, sondern auch fuer Griechisch, Indisch, Japanisch, Chinesisch usw. Aber das ist mir eine zu grosse Aufgabe, und ich begnuege mich damit, Alternaiven als redirects zu linken. Im Fall "Idrisi" waere ein Titel "Al-Idrisi" wirklich besser. Niemand nennt ihn "Idrisi", und nach der Konvention, Vor- und Nachnamen zu nennen, waere der Titel Muhammad al-Idrisi am besten. dab 09:37, 14 Oct 2004 (UTC)

answers to pt:Usuário Discussão:Brian Boru:

Hi there Gangleri. Here is Brian from the portuguese wikipedia. Concerning your first question, unfortunalety, i really dont know who could do it. About the second one, our wiki is too small yet, and if i understood correctly what you want, the only articles he wave about dogs, are Cão, and the links Boxer, Labrador and São Bernardo.

Finnish Wikipedia[edit]

This is an answer to fi:Keskustelu käyttäjästä:Jean d'Arc, which is an answer to fi:Keskustelu luokasta:Koirat: I'm more interested in categorizing articles than writing about dogs. I considered moving the dog breed articles to their own subcategory, if you didn't understand my writing. -Hapsiainen 21:53, 20 Oct 2004 (UTC), who is the same person as Jean d'Arc in Finnish Wikipedia.

Please, don't put in my talk page any more links to projects and categories you found interesting. I already have plans what to do in Wikipedia. They often change, when I found something interesting or annoying. But you can't change them like that, and you shouldn't. By the way, I remember that visitors from German Wikipedia have already notified us of de:Wikipedia:WikiProjekt Nordeuropa in the Finnish Village Pump.

Still about Finnish dog categories. The Finnish Wikipedia haven't yet formed rules about categorization. It must form them, because people will become tired of current insconsistency between e.g. singular and plural. So expect some catagory names to change in future. -Hapsiainen 12:18, Oct 22, 2004 (UTC)


I am posting it here, because I assume you'll look here more often than on your Dutch userpage. Regarding your questions on my Dutch userpage:

It is currently still necessary to cross-upload. There are plans to change that, and make it possible to use images that have been uploaded on Commons on other projects directly. I hope this will be available in MediaWiki 1.4 (the next version of the software, that seems to be close to beta release). - Andre Engels 08:28, 21 Oct 2004 (UTC)

There is no Category "dog breeds" in the Dutch Wikipedia. The dog breeds are in nl:Categorie:Hond, which corresponds to Category:Dogs. - Andre Engels 08:34, 22 Oct 2004 (UTC)


Hi, got your note but am not clear on your purpose. Are you talking about changing the category system? If so, then Wikipedia:Categorization is the place to ask about that. Stan 03:17, 25 Oct 2004 (UTC)

From The Dogfather[edit]

You wrote that you understand Spanish and Italian. Do you think you would be able to make a stub for Italian Greyhound?

dogs and tree of life on Chinese wiki[edit]

Dogs aren't as common as pets in China as rest of the the world (esepecially the United States). Most city people live in cramped apartments that does not allow for dogs. I checked the articles, there aren't any about breeds of dogs.

粤菜 is about cantonese cooking, dispelliing the myth that dogs is a common dish (it's actually illegal in most Chinese areas). 犬科 is the lupine genus. Category:小作品 is stubs.

I'd be happy to help with the interwiki links for the tree of life project. Once in a while I go through the articles top down to add interwiki links and taxo boxes. Lately I've been busy working on categorization, as well as some other offline reporting, so I havne't done much lately. If you have any specific questions and doubts, please let me know.

Also please note that Chinese wiki uses one of the older taxonomy methods, especially around fish and birds. I don't know what the English name of those are, but the layering and divisions are often different from what I see in English and Japanese wiki until you get to the genus level.

I also operate one of the two m:interwiki bot zh:User:Vina-iwbot on Chinese wiki. Between me and the other person who has a bot, any links that you put onto other wiki should be picked up within a couple of weeks, so you don't need to add them manually here. Do you know if Latin wiki has an interwiki bot operator yet? I don't see one on the list. It's very useful if you have users actively adding interwiki links.

--Vina 06:18, 31 Oct 2004 (UTC)

I'll add the three dog pages to the Chinese translation request page. If someone who knows dogs don't translate it, I'll try it in a week or two. --Vina 10:12, 31 Oct 2004 (UTC)

wikiproject dogs[edit]

While I'm not what I would call an "active" participant in the Wikiproject at the moment, I'm certainly interested. I'll go check out the questions. Sadly, English is the only language in which I have even a reasonable amount of fluency. :( I will be going to a very large dog show in February, and will be bringing my digital camera. I should be able to take pictures of 100 or so breeds, so that should be able to fill out a lot of our articles with pictures. --Dante Alighieri | Talk 07:41, Nov 2, 2004 (UTC)


Dear Vigleif, I want to let you know about Användardiskussion:OlofE#Sagokung. When it is fixed I will tray to find some related pages from other Wikipedias.

It is intentional. The Swedish article sagokung corresponds to two articles in the English version.--Vigleif 6 november 2004 kl.00.29 (CET)

Dog race project[edit]

Gangleri, I believe you posted something about dogs on my swedish user page, and on others.

Yes, I think I may take part in a project about dog races, but presently I am involved in many things, so I can not garantee the volume, but I can give it a try.

Wikipedia:Multiple Redirects[edit]

I don't think it is necessary to keep track of multiple redirects. The obvious way to deal with them is to edit all redirects to point to the real article, e.g. if A redirects to B & B redirects to C, you just have to edit A to redirect to C directly. I don't think there is any possibility of a better thing to do, at least with multiple redirects, per se. Under which title the article must finally be located is a different issue that could be settled in the talk pages/IRC/whatever but while that's being debated, doing the above is the right thing AFAICT.

aisl. / NOTOC[edit]

ahoi Gangleri. betreffend NOTOC / TOC habe ich ehrlich gesagt keine Meinung. Ich sehe, dass so ein ellenlanges Inhaltsverzeichnis nicht sehr ästhetisch ist (siehe hier für ein extremes Beispiel), andererseits ist das ein Problem, das systematisch gelöst werden sollte (und kann), und nicht mit Handarbeit an einzelnen Texten... Re isl. Diakritika, den Texten die ich hochgeladen habe, habe ich aus purer en:-Gewohnheit Diakritika-lose Titel gegeben, das kann man ohne weiteres ändern. Gruss, dab 08:25, 11 Nov 2004 (UTC)

On Norse Saga[edit]

On User talk:Dino, you note,

== Old Icelandic characters ==
* Dear Dino, I could see you as an editor of Norse Saga. Could you take a look at Talk:Norse saga#Characters "Ǫ" == >& # 4 9 0 ;< and "ǫ" == >& # 4 9 1 ;< and Wikipedia:Invalid article names. Thanks! [[User:Gangleri|Gangleri | T | Th]] 21:00, 2004 Nov 11 (UTC)

I wrote the original of Norse Saga, a long time ago, yes. However, on these matters I am totally out of my element. I know nothing of the aforementioned characters. For the American penchant of quoting the law (quoting the law is the last refuge of the scoundrel, and a beautiful way to pass the buck ...), is there a wikipedia policy on this stuff? Sorry I can't be more helpful.

dino 23:53, 11 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Thank you very much for this valuable and informative input. Regards [[User:Gangleri|Gangleri | T | Th]] 05:10, 2004 Nov 12 (UTC)
I agree with Jallan, and was one of the three participants in the discussion. I have made some or most of the redirects you're talking about, and I'd like to add that there are several encodings around, and I think that it is an advantage if one article can be accessed by various redirects. Consequently, when I see a red link, which corresponds to an article I rather make it into a redirect than change the link itself.--Wiglaf 21:49, 12 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Some responses[edit]

Hi. Sorry not to have responded sooner to any of your messages; I have to admit that the more I saw, the more I put off responding to even the simpler ones, but anyway...

About me[edit]

  • Note that although I am reasonably familiar with the source code - enough to direct myself or others to the right part of it, anyway - I would in no way consider myself one of the "core developers". In fact, my actual contributions to the code so far are few and trivial if any, although I like to think I've "contributed" in other ways. Just thought I ought to be clear on that, so that you don't get the impression a) that I wrote significant parts of the software and have intimate knowledge of it; or b) that I have access to the Wikimedia servers, or other rights that you don't have. I am just a user like you who has got to know the internals of the software a bit.
  • Nor do I have admin/sysop rights here, on meta:, or even on test:, so there's no point asking me to delete anything.


  • It should be noted that, although someone has nicknamed the skin modification "MediaZilla", bugzilla is not developed by the same people as MediaWiki, but actually the same people as Mozilla (the open source browser). So, features like previews for comments (which I too would dearly like) are not likely to be implemented by anyone here, but need to be discussed with the developers of that software.
    • That said, the ability to make [[magic links]] to Wikipedia has been added on specifically for our install; I'm not sure who it was that implemented that, so I'm not sure who you'd need to talk to about any changes to/problems with its behaviour.
  • I have no more "rights" there than you do, so if you can't modify a comment, nor can I; I'm not aware that a feature for doing so exists, except in as much as one can usually hack databases directly, and hope for no nasty side effects.
  • It is possible to link to individual comments in a bug (and this, too, has nothing to do with the MediaWiki setup): if you click on the "#3" or whatever, you'll notice your browser is pointed to the anchor "#c3". So Bugzilla:144#c3 will do what you are after.

Templates and variables[edit]

  • The issue with including a template using {{{{ns:Foo}}:Bar}} does indeed seem to be a bug in the parser; the parser is, I may have mentioned before, a right mess internally, so I dread to think how such things work (or, indeed, don't;)). Nonetheless, I've filed Bugzilla:895, since it's clearly a genuine bug.
    • A way round this has just occurred to me, which is that "User:" is always a valid alternative name for the user namespace; so {{User:Gangleri}} will actually include your user-page on any project you visit!
  • I believe the thinking behind having {{PAGENAME}} etc refer to the page in which the template is included, is that this is basically the only reason you'd need to use them: to reference, in a template, the page the reader is actually looking at. Generally, templates aren't designed to be looked at in themselves, and moving and copying templates is probably rare enough that it's not much of an issue. While having some magic syntax would be nice, it makes the software that much more complex for rather a small gain. Since, when you're editing a template, you'll know what its title is, it's not that hard to just change that part of it when the template is moved or copied to a different title.
  • As for inclusion across multiple projects, yes, this would create some problems with localisations like this, but as far as I know, no such feature is even in the beginning of development, so I think we can put off worrying about which project {{ns:user}} translates according to until someone codes it.

Page parameters[edit]

  • As far as I know, there is no complete list of all the parameters that can be used in URLs for ordinary pages and special pages. This is because most of them are available through the interface, and so a bit of experimentation generally reveals how to use them. There are a few exceptions, like ...title=Foo&action=raw, but basically if you want to know how to do something by URL, do it manually and then look at the URL you get pointed at!
    • That said, a proper list could be useful, for instance for people writing bots, but I don't have to time to start it right now.
  • As for Special pages, each has its own peculiar parameters; there's no sense in which these are "allowed" on other special pages - you can visit // if you really want to, but it won't do anything much. The fact that lots of special pages make use of a parameter called target should not imply that this is some kind of general parameter - it's just that it's the appropriate name for the paramater in each case. So ...title=Special:Watchlist&target=somebody is no more "accepted" than anything else, and does not offer a cheeky way to view someone else's watchlist; there is no feature for doing that.
    • The simplified links I used, like Special:Whatlinkshere/Foo, work for most Special: pages that have one obvious parameter: Whatlinkshere needs to have a page to look at the backlinks for, Allpages can be told where to begin the list, etc. It's just a convenient way of linking to the pages, and I think pre-dates the whole idea of things like {{localurl:}}. [Note, btw, that these aren't InterWiki links, they're just ordinary internal ones, with the parameter pretending to be a sub-page, just like User:IMSoP/Gangleri.]
    • The {{localurl:}} syntax can be made to refer to any page, with any extra parameters; all it is, is a convenient and portable way of creating a full URL pointing at the page (I think it was probably created so that parts of the interface could make use of it, and work on a new install without tweaking). So in terms of "when to use it", the answer is "whenever you like" (everywhere except where it's possible, and would be easier, to use the "sub-page" shortcut I just mentioned, I guess; or, where it would be easier to just to copy-and-paste the actual URL!)

Well, that's dealt with some of your comments and questions anyway; I've got other things to do now, so I'd better stop there, but I hope this has been helpful so far. - IMSoP 14:42, 16 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Old Norse Names[edit]

I have reworked the names of the poems in Poetic Edda, formerly Elder Edda, to fit with the conventions tentatively established at Wikipedia:Naming_conventions_(Old_Norse/Old_Icelandic/Old_English) and am informing those who have commented on such things in the past. I hope what I have done pleases you. I intend increasingly to go through with standardizing names as indicated, unless there really are objections. It is time the mess was cleaned up, following some convention or other. Please reply at Wikipedia:Naming_conventions_(Old_Norse/Old_Icelandic/Old_English) if you have any feelings on the matter, especially if they are negative. I don't have any great preference, but want to get something started to clear up the maze of redirects and strange spellings that currently afflict the Norse mythology articles. (Actually, many of them aren't strange, it is just that they don't agree with one another.) Jallan 04:36, 2 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Slovak towns[edit]

Hi, you left a message on my talk page. Thank you for interwiki linking and categorizing Slovak towns. But it si not necessary to announce such non-controversial changes on people's talk pages. By the way, the link from Category:Towns in Slovakia to its Romanian counterpart does not seem to work (at least in my browser). Probably some problem with international charcters. Good luck Brona 17:06, 22 Jan 2005 (UTC)

  • You wanted some data in CSV format about Slovak towns. I do not know about any. When I create infoboxes, I use data from [3]. This table has columns: (1) town (2) population at the end of 2002, (3) area, (4) population density, (5) altitude, (6) first written record of the town. There is also a table of all towns arranged by regions and districts here [4]. I guess those tables can be downloaded and converted to CSV. Let me know if you want help with that. Or let me know what other data you want, I may try to find them. I willing to help you with this project. Regards Brona 03:44, 26 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Hello again. You ask whether Slovakia has some abreviation for each kraj and okres? The only such thing I now of are Slovak car registration plates - a two-letter code for each okres (district). They are occasionaly used in other contexts as well, not only on cars. Brona 16:09, 30 Jan 2005 (UTC)

grinbot @ huwiki[edit]

Hello Gangleri!

I did not really got your question about GrinBot. What do you want to know? What should I write about and where?

GrinBot is a pywikipediabot, common around all wikipedias, like user:hasharbot, user:robbot and Andre Engels' bot I don't seem to recall. If you want to know more, see . If you wanted to ask something from GrinBot to do, then just tell me ;)

Best wishes, --grin 19:07, 2005 Jan 25 (UTC)

You asked:

  • At IRC you mentioned somethink about 1.000 links between hu: and ro:. I could see the activities from other bots in the past. What I did not ask you is:
  • are these 1.000 links are just between hu: and ro:? or
  • do you take care also about informations from other Wikipedias as a "relay"?
  • Do you generate reports? If yes where? Do they include s status "succes" / "problems" (as differences between linterlanguage links; multiple interlanguage links etc)?
  • I am also active at eo:. Could you please let me know also about the number of missing interlanguage links between hu: and eo:?


  • these missing links consist of any wikipedia linking to a ro article which does not link back to it. it may or may be more or less, because the logfile was not rotated and it's possible that grinbot ran more than once since then :)
  • bot works like gets links from a starting point (in my case that is one hungarian article), get all the links, then get all the links from the linked pages, and so on, until there is no more new ones. after that it sorts the results, and if there is no conflict then it updates the hungarian page with the new links found all around wikipedia, and records missing links on other wikipedias in my logfile, which could be used as a base for starting on any other wikipedia (like ro).
  • I do not publish reports, but I can naturally give you my logfile, which can be converted to a report by basic unix tools like grep and sort. it includes lots of useful and useless informations.
  • missing links from eo to hu are around 3500, if my logs are correct.

I re-run a full update on huwiki and this result a fresh log. Probably done in 2-3 days. Check back on me. --grin 00:42, 2005 Jan 27 (UTC)

Well, I didn't succeed to move the required stuff to my other machine (which is on 24h a day) so when I go to sleep I have to stop the bot. :) It'l finish eventually, and I progress to move the bot to the other machine anyway. Stay tuned. :)

About the Bot page: no, we don't (yet) have such a page. We have category voting page which may result a request to move a category, but other things aren't well documented right now (mostly due to lack of time). The idea is good, but I have to find some time to get it done. --grin 21:54, 2005 Jan 28 (UTC)

response from cough[edit]

Hi, now I understand why you have a question about zh: category names. Actually it is no secret. Now all interwiki linking to zh.wikipedia use zh: with NO exception.

There is a story about why we have zh-ch: and zh-tw: variants. At the very beginning of zh.wikipedia, there were only people from Mainland China engaging zh.wikipedia, therefore zh.wikipedia was written by simplified Chinese (SC) at the time. When peope from Hong Kong and Taiwan, who used traditional Chinese (TC) as writing language, came to participate in zh.wikipedia, they found some difficulties in reading articles and communicating with SC users. Somebody then went to apply for a new TC zh.wikipedia, and s/he got what s/he wanted (anecdotically that person is not even a Chinese user)! So the initial SC zh.wikipedia had the link name as zh-cn:, and the new TC zh.wikipedia had zh-tw:. However, some people strongly argued that SC and TC are actually one single language, with differences only in mutually comprehensible writing forms and a few idioms. SC and TC can be mutually converted by computer program, and they thought it is better to develop such a program instead of to divide SC and TC into two wikipedias, scattering resources. As a result, SC zh.wikipedia and TC zh.wikipedia were merged together again. zh-cn: and zh-tw: you now see at times are the remains from that period. Now the SC-TC conversion program has been employed, so there is no need to use zh-cn: and zh-tw: anymore.

I hope my answer can suffice your question. Cheers.--Cough Talk 23:42, 31 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Edvard Beneš[edit]

English language Wikipedia uses ISO-8859-1 as its underlying charset, so non-ISO-8859-1 characters, such as š, can't be used in article titles. When it is converted to UTF-8 (as it is the case with every other Wikimedia project), this limitation will disappear.

In the case of š, it may actually appear correctly in some language versions of Internet Explorer (and other browsers that attempt to be bug-to-bug compatible with IE, like Opera or Mozilla), since they interpret illegal character codes as belonging to CP-1252 character set. This behaviour is, however, non-standard and, obviously, should not be relied upon. -- Naive cynic 10:22, 26 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Romanian geography stubs[edit]

Hi Ganglieri -

It looks like you're going through a few Romanian geography articles at the moment... could I ask you to help out by changing any {{stub}} templates on the files you do to {{romania-geo-stub}}?

To be honest, I don't know what the rules would be on this one. I've been an administrator for less than a month, and have never had any interwiki dealings. I've never come across a "steAlth template" before either. So I really don't know whether these will be acceptable or not. Sorry!
  1. regarding some disambiguations I added at some discussion pages.
Well, I'm not really in favour of disambiguations being on talk pages, myself. The best thing would probably be simply to create the disambiguation page - see how I've edited Colentina, making links to three pages yet to be made. If you think it would be better, those links can be removed and more information can be put on the Colentina page.

Hello from Estonia[edit]

Hallo, Gangleri!

Ich habe Deutch gelernt, aber ich habe alle vergessen. Ich verstehe etwas, aber ich schreibe nicht. Therefore I write better in English.

I'm glad, that You liked the translation into Estonian. Actually, when I readed you homepage, I started to feel, that you are good inside. And sometimes in such situations I want to make something good for them also.

I found some mistakes also. First sentence: "My name is... ": "Minu nimi on..." (not mini). In middle of text word 'and' must be translated: 'ja'. And word 'homage' is not Estonian. It's 'austus', but I'm not sure, that it's proper place for that word under Vina. Maybe 'kodu' ('home') or 'islandi lambakoer' or 'minu koer' ('my dog') or 'minu hobi' or simply 'Vina' or empty string?

You created a new artikle "Berlin": #REDIRECT Berliin. When I saw that, then I was surprized: Gangleri starts an article in Estonian about Irving Berlin! No, of course, that was city ... But it is not written in Estonian that way. It's like I would create in Deutch an article "Eesti": #REDIRECT Estland. Nobody deleted it, but it's somehow strange.

Article et:Vikipeedia is now correct. When I saw your letter, then our bureaucrat had fixed it. et:Kasutaja:Taivo

I only intended it to put it in a more convinient location, where it may stay longer and bookmarking it might make more sense. that cyrillic went away was not intended and thus was a bad side effect.

Pt.wp differs in many aspects from other wikipedias. We, pt.wp, do not delete articles that have a good title. We are a small wikipedia, then it is usual to have a lot of red links. Those pages help us to find which area and subjects are missing from our wikipedia. We also have pt:template:impróprio. Lixo is used when somebody creates an article with clear nonsense. Impróprio is used when somebody creates an article with content that cannot be used in any wikimedia project (but it is not a copyvio). And we also have our templates for "movedic" and "movebooks", but articles do not get deleted in the end of the process. Pt.wp used to be an inclusionist and eventualist redoubt, but nowadays, it is getting bigger, and new users tend to be deletionists. But there is hope, since we have shown that we can convert even hard deletionists. Bye! --E2m 21:33, 15 Apr 2005 (UTC)

interwiki sorting[edit]

Hi Gangleri! Could you please, give reason why you reordering interwiki links same time when adding other interwiki links? (recently here) It's custom in Estonian wiki to use languages in order of their name in their language not in order of language code.

I saw you have made commons:User:Gangleri/sandbox/Template:Interwiki guidelines page and claiming there that Estonian Wikipedia is "Ordered by language code:" along with other Wikis, from which in my experience many use instead sorted by the language names. It wouldn't "harm" to add referencies based on which you claim it. --TarmoK 15:40, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for updating the Ynterwiki on fy:Wiki:Recentchanges. However, there's no reason for apologising for sorting by languagecode, as that's indeed how we sort ynterwiki. On the other hand, such an apology does not allow you to politic with your contributions.

Template Todo and Template Task[edit]

Hi, you left me a short msg on my italian user page about 2-3 wks ago, suggesting to have a look at your reimplementation of the Todo template, that allows portability and adds interesting features.

WOW! I finally had time to have a look and found it really interesting, even if I didn't understand everything, a little because your page [7] was really confusing for me (it didn't help the mix with finnish :-) ). Could you explain me how you implemented it (a sort of "Template:Task guide for Newbies" ;-) ) ? And could we do the same here in Wikipedia and eventually in the other language Wikipedias where a similar template exists (like German, Italian, French)? Answer me here please.

User Interface Language[edit]

Hi Gangleri,

Angela told me that you are the best person to advise me on how to let users change their interface language without having to log in.

I looked at and I like what you have done.

Could you help me make a similar system at Yellowikis? ( )

I am

Halló Paul! Unfortunatelly I have no imediate answer to your question "how to let users change their interface language without having to log in". See bugzilla:0057#c21 bug 57#c21 ( You may experiment with user rights in version 1.5. Please let me know if you get it running. Now I am mainly involved in "portability". If you would like to copy and paste hundreds of templates we could make a Spanish or Catalan version at "WikiPage". Best regards Gangleri 13:02, 28 Jun 2005 (BST)
So how does it work on Wikipage? If I click on the Esperanto link the content of the page _and_ the language of the user interface changes to Esperanto. Same with German, Romanian and the other languages.
"WikiPage" consists at the moment of 6 wiki's. bug 57#c21: "At the moment "anonymous users" will use always the "content language"." This is "coincidence" and may change if a feature "use same configuration for all sessions across multiple wiki's" would be implemented (as a request or as an "erroneous" implementation). The sessions are identified by cookies; I assume different cookies for each wiki (at the moment).
The wiki's do not have "identical" content. Only the templates are 85% identical.
If you log in (please do so) you are able to use only one language. I do not like this and bugzilla:0057#c21 describes this. Regards Gangleri | Th | T June 29, 2005 18:07 (UTC)

Salut Reinhardt, îţi răspund la cele două întrebări pe care mi le-ai pus prin email:

1. Despre majuscule/minuscule pe ro.wiktionary: Nu am experienţă aproape deloc cu Wiktionary, deci nu pot să dau un răspuns prea în temă, dar din ce ştiu, cel puţin fr.wiktionary e case-sensitive numai dacă în dicţionar există două forme care diferă doar prin case, ca de exemplu roumain şi Roumain. Dar dacă în baza de date e o singură formă atunci oricum ai scrie cuvîntul ajungi la aceeaşi definiţie, de exemplu maison şi Maison duc în acelaşi loc.

Limba română are norocul că nu scrie nici un cuvînt cu majusculă dacă nu e nume de ceva. Englezii, francezii, nemţii au alte reguli, după cum bine ştii: on Friday, un Americain, der Mensch. Deci cred că pe ro.wiktionary se poate merge liniştit pe case-insensitive. Dacă se întîmplă vreodată să existe două cuvinte care să difere numai prin case putem da foarte bine cele două definiţii în acelaşi articol, ca şi două înţelesuri diferite.

2. Despre forma articulată sau nearticulată răspunsul e clar: orice dicţionar de limba română preferă forma fără articol. Explicaţia e simplă: cînd spui "omul" spui de fapt două cuvinte, contopite: substantiv + articol hotărît. Sper să-ţi fi fost de ajutor. --AdiJapan 13:02, 14 November 2005 (UTC)

It would have been much more appropriate if you consulted with the community or at least some of the administrators at Bosnian Wikipedia before you added Wikivar [8] .

Could please let me know where and how can we edit this interface. Thank You.--Dado 21:43, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

Dual (grammatical number)[edit]

Hi! I've seen you have been posting feature requests to Bugzilla to better localise the MediaWiki software. As I do not know where and how to post the following, I hope perhaps you would know how to do it properly.

The various variables and Mediawiki messages should allow also for duality as it is used in Slovenian language.

Slovenian language has three grammmatical numbers (singular, dual, plural). These are obligatory for nouns, verbs, pronouns, adjectives. We form them by adding different suffixes to words.
Currently it is possible to use only one sentence form for numbers in e.g. Mediawiki:Sitestatstext and other system messages. It would be great if the software would allow for entering at least up to five forms that would be displayed depending on the number generated e.g. by the variable NUMBEROFFILES or any other such variable or $n that generates a number.
Five different forms would be needed because of the peculiarities of Slovenian counting system:
  • 1 + nominative singular form (datoteka)
  • 2 + nom. dual form (datoteki)
  • 3 / 4 + nom. plural (datoteke)
  • 5, 6, 7 till (including) 100 + genitive plural (datotek)
  • At every 100 items, this sequence starts anew.
So for the given example (number of files on Special:Statistics) the system should display:
  • "je naložena 1 datoteka" (for 1 file; the number generated by NUMBEROFFILES equals 1)
  • "sta naloženi 2 datoteki" (for 2 files; the number generated by NUMBEROFFILES equals 2)
  • "so naložene 3 / 4 datoteke" (for 3 or 4 files, --)
  • "je naloženih 5 / 6 / 7 datotek" (for 5 or more files till and including 100)
  • At every 100 items this sequence should repeat itself. So for 101 it should be again: "je naložena 101 datoteka" as the first form above; etc.
Hereby I should also say that this counting pattern does not apply in all cases. In some cases genitive is not used so there are only three or even only two sentence forms. Therefore, it should be optional whether to enter two, three, five or any other number of forms.

I'm posting this here to inform you - as you seem to be working much on interwiki collaboration and localization of Mediawiki - and to kindly ask you to post this where and as you seem fitable. Thanks very much! --Eleassar my talk 17:07, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

P.S.: If you wish to communicate to Slovenian Wikipedia something about Mediawiki, probably it's better to contact me (sl:User:Eleassar) or perhaps sl:User:Matijap (he's more knowledgeable than I am, I suppose) instead of Klemen, as Klemen is not editing the user interface much but we are (especially me). --Eleassar my talk 10:38, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

The first change I would like to make[edit]

The first thing that I would like to change is the name of Sindhi language as it appears in Wikiprojects. It should appear سنڌي rather than what it appears now. I think one needs to make the relavant change in LanguageSd.php file. It might be changed to as follows:

<?php /** Sindhi language file ( سنڌي )

 * @package MediaWiki
 * @subpackage Language

require_once( 'LanguageUtf8.php' );

class LanguageSd extends LanguageUtf8 { #FIXME: inherit almost everything for now

function isRTL() { return true; } }


How to make such a change take place? In fact I find things very difficult. Aursani 19:24, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

First I would like to change ....[edit]

Dear friend, First I would like to change the way name of Sindhi language appears in Wiki projects. It must appear as سنڌي instead of what it appears today. I think it can be done by changing the php file as under. Kindly guide me do this. For me, things are very difficult. Aursani 19:54, 10 May 2006 (UTC) <?php /** Sindhi language file ( سنڌي )

 * @package MediaWiki
 * @subpackage Language

require_once( 'LanguageUtf8.php' );

class LanguageSd extends LanguageUtf8 { #FIXME: inherit almost everything for now

function isRTL() { return true; } }

Template issues[edit]

I ran through a second scan of de:Vorlage:Normdaten and found some more errors with the LCCN/WorldCat leading zeros on DeWp. After fixing some hundred errors and noticing thousands more, I decided to play with the template. I made this update to the template. Now, all leading zeros for the LCCN parameter are automatically removed from the links - you may want to copy those changes to the template on other wikis, as well. (Or, if you have trouble, ping me. Face-smile.svg) There seems to be another issue, however, that is unrelated to the leading zeros. It seems a problem with some of the links on WorldCat - Someone mentioned it me on my DeWp talk page, here. If you have any info on that problem, feel free to mention it.

Little he: help needed[edit]

Hallo Gangleri bzw. לערי ריינהארט :-)

Du kannst doch Hebräisch … vorhin bin ich bei Automatic milking auf den Interwikilink he:חליבה מכנית gestoßen. Die Bebilderung lässt mich vermuten, dass es dort um normale Melkmaschinen oder um Melkstände geht, nicht jedoch um Melkroboter. Kannst Du das bestätigen? Ggf. würde ich dann nämlich die Verlinkungen (einschließlich Commons) korrigieren. Und falls es wider Erwarten doch um Melkroboter geht, würde ich Dich bitten, ein paar der im hiesigen Artikel verwendeten Abbildungen mit passender Bildunterschrift in den he-Artikel einzubauen. Danke im Voraus und viele Grüße --:bdk: 03:15, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

Science lovers wanted![edit]

Science lovers wanted!
Smithsonian logo color.svg
Hi! I'm serving as the wikipedian-in-residence at the Smithsonian Institution Archives until June! One of my goals as resident, is to work with Wikipedians and staff to improve content on Wikipedia about people who have collections held in the Archives - most of these are scientists who held roles within the Smithsonian and/or federal government. I thought you might like to participate since you are interested in the sciences! Sign up to participate here and dive into articles needing expansion and creation on our to-do list. Feel free to make a request for images or materials at the request page, and of course, if you share your successes at the outcomes page you will receive the SIA barnstar! Thanks for your interest, and I look forward to your participation! Sarah (talk) 20:02, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Stewards doing xwiki admin check[edit]

Hi לערי ריינהארט. Stewards are undertaking further works on inactive admins through the wikis, and I see that you are

  • admin at
  • admin at
  • admin at
  • crat/admin at
  • admin at
  • admin at
  • admin at

at those wikis you have been inactive for many years. If you do not wish to maintain those rights, then they can be resigned at m:SRP; if you do wish to maintain those rights, it would help if you could do some editing on that wiki when we get to do formal notifications to those wikis.

I also believe that you used to edit under the username Gangleri, that being the case, I also see the following inactive accounts

  • admin at
  • crat/admin at
  • admin at
  • admin at
  • admin at
  • admin at
  • admin at

Whichever way, it is a right hotchpotch and needs some work to clean this up. Thanks. — billinghurst sDrewth 15:22, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Text reading and translation request First responce[edit]

links here:
Magic square at the Parshvanatha temple, Khajuraho.png

Hi, This has reference to your request at mr-wikipedia embassy for translation of of inscription from given ancient Epigraph.

Prima facia it seems to be Devnagri script(Prakrit or Magadhi Prakrit ?) but, writing of some alphabates might have gone through trnsformation in course of time. Reading of some of the alphabates may need help from experts in Epigraphy

  • As laypersons following feedback can be given as first response

Top Firsts line[edit]

  • Firsts line likely to have 9 aphabates (incl clusters)
 ??पुत्र(श्री) देव सर्म्म (First two alphabates with question mark not yet not recognised fifth alphabate in bracket is most likely to be स्री or श्री)
First two alphabates can be prefix of proper-noun or an adjective next two readable letters are ' पुत्र ' means ' son ' first two alphabates + पुत्र = (some one's)son श्री is honorifix (Similler like Mr.) transliterating to ' Shri '. Last four letters are देव सर्म्म is proper noun transliterating in to Dev Sarmma. देव सर्म्म or Dev Sarmma are most likely to be single word (with little chance of being separate words, in any case it is a proper noun)
  • Likely translation of first line will be:' (some one's)son Shri Dev Sarmma ' (With lingustic transformation in todays standard language pronounciation terms word सर्म्म 'Sarmma' is likely to be शर्म 'Sharma' The likely complete reading of the last word will be देवशर्म

Top second line[edit]

In second line again first two letters are not yet understood

  • Second line likely to have five letters and two punctuation marks at the end.
 ?? जयतु ॰ ॥
Still writing.
जयतु transliterates in to 'Jayatu'
Likely translation will be ....(be the / is the) (winner or lord) ॰ ॥

Likely translation of two lines together[edit]

  • Likely translation of first line will be:' (*some one's)son Shri Dev Sarmma '
Likely translation of second line will be *....(be the / is the) (winner or lord) ॰ ॥
*Explanation: Alphabates at the place of of (*some one's) and at the place of ...blank space still to be figured out.

If I get any more info I will keep you posted. But in any case these top lines are not likely to have any direct relation with any mathematics equation. At the most person name may be of a mathematician if at all but can not be sure at this stage.

Thanks and Best wishes.

Mahitgar (talk) 09:55, 9 August 2015 (UTC)


Dear Mahitgar! fr:user:Anne Bauval · Anne Bauval noted at fr:carré magique plus que parfait that the script is most likely using Gurmukhī numerals (ISO 15924#List of codes: Guru and not Deva). I am puzzled if the numerals used in together with the Shahmukhi alphabet are using the Arab Unicode glyphs or some homoglyphs or variants.
I have no clues which ISO 15924#List of codes are official in (parts of) India and which codes are missing at .
Thanks in advance for your support and greetings from Munich Germany! lɛʁi ʁɑjnhɑʁt (Leri Reinhart)
