Account?[edit]

May I know why u do not use an account? u can do several countless things on Wiki with an account, that IP editors cannot do. Kailash29792 (talk) 07:39, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

ATM, I don't really see the need for an account. With the new DRAFTspace, most of the abilities lost when creation was revoked some years ago have returned as well. -- 70.24.244.161 (talk) 07:46, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
What is DRAFTspace? This one? Creating account helps you to use many tools and gadgets and track edits in a much better way. TitoDutta 20:23, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
WP:DRAFT; it's a new namespace Wikipedia opened earlier this month, it uses the prefix [[draft:]]. The head pages for it are WP:Drafts and Draft:Draft. DRAFTspace is supposed to replace the private subpage spaces used by Article Incubator, Abandoned Drafts, Articles for Creation; and allow people to more easily collaborate on drafts, without needing to store drafts as personal subpages. -- 70.24.244.161 (talk) 20:27, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
Yes, it's AfC candidates and similar material (other forms of drafts). IP editors don't have watchlists. I just look at my history and click on pages with discussions I'm part of where I may still have something to contribute to the discussion. -- 70.24.244.161 (talk) 21:31, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Non Eng redirects?[edit]

Do you want that to be asked/discussed at redirect talk page (or somewhere else, like Teahouse)? I personally feel these redirects are not needed. Also I don't know about any policy which clearly allows or prohibits such redirects. If we get find clear answers, it'll save future hassles TitoDutta 17:13, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

They're not prohibited, they just have to have a specific affinity to the subject of the article they redirect to. Spezial:Beobachtungsliste was recently kept by RFD, and that's German, and that doesn't even have any affinity to German. Munchen exists on Wikipedia (German language redirect for the German name for Munich). 毛泽东 (Chairman Mao) exists as a redirect. Владимир Ильич Ленин redirects to Lenin's article. The KGB's redirect also works КГБ. 富士山 exists as a redirect to Mt. Fuji.
We even have WP:CJKV a taskforce that maintains Chinese-Japanese-Korean-Vietnamese disambiguation pages with CJKV pagesnames. (as people do copy-paste non-English into the searchbox, and non-English terms can also be ambiguous)
A redirect from say the Japanese spelling of Water to the article Water is not allowed, because Water is not a Japanese topic, and there is no particular affinity for Japanese on the topic of water. That is why I point out the linkages (what affinity the subject has for the language in question) when I specify non-English redirects

  • If we do similar things for WP India,it would be a disaster. We don't even allow Indic script in the first sentence of the lead. TitoDutta 17:29, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Most articles on non-English subjects have the non-English name in the lead. As India has so many languages, that could be problematic. But the article Languages of India says just English and Devanagari Hindi have status, so national articles would only use that. Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish for Squamish) is a regional topic of Canada, it is a regional language that is only used on Squamish articles, not on Canadian articles in general. ᐃᓄᒃᑎᑐᑦ is the name of the Inuktitut language in Inuktitut, so would have a high affinity for that as a redirect. Even though Inuktitut has legal standing in Canada, it only does so in ᓄᓇᕗᑦ (Nunavut). That might be a solution for India, if you guys want to try it out? (restrict it to only the region where the language is used, if the topic uses that language, unless it is Devanagari Hindi) -- 70.24.244.161 (talk) 17:46, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
