Greek instance: some minor points

Itsraining (talkcontribs)

Hi Syntrofos!

I'm contacting you here because I can't do so via the talk page on the Greek instance (perhaps due to being a new editor).

As you will probably have already seen, I have already translated some pages. I'd like to bring up some minor points that might be worth to fix.

  • The page Οδηγός συγγραφής should probably moved in the ΠρολεΒίκι namespace.
  • I think "συντάκτης" is a better translation for "editor" than "επεξεργαστής" (seeεπεξεργαστής). I have used the former translation to work on ΠρολεΒίκι:Ξεκινώντας ως επεξεργαστής but if we decide otherwise it can be replaced. So if you agree, then the page ΠρολεΒίκι:Ξεκινώντας ως επεξεργαστής should be probably renamed.

Yours, Comrade Rain.

To be honest, I think συντάκτης is more suitable. I'll do what you said right now. Thanks!

Forgot to mention it but it would be more suitable if you wrote the guides in plural, to give a stronger sense of formality. At least that's what I see in other language instances.

Hello, I have been trying to post a message to your talk page on the Greek instance but have been getting this error:

[5bb85fd81cb34024b372a815] Exception caught: A database query error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software.

Anyway, I wanted to say that I have created the templates Πρότυπο:Παραπομπή and Πρότυπο:Διαδικτυακή παραπομπή which exist in the English (Template:Citation and Template:Web citation) and other instances and are used for references. I have tested them and they seem to work alright. Now, they should probably be added to the Visual Editor (something like this, I assume: MediaWiki:Visualeditor-cite-tool-definition.json) but of course I don't have the rights do. Thank you!

ComradeSyntrofos (talkcontribs)

ok, that's good, thanks

also fixed the file

Follow up: The following pages also have to be created with the tools' names or <cite-tool-name-...> strings show up instead.

MediaWiki:Visualeditor-cite-tool-name-citation (Παραπομπή)

MediaWiki:Visualeditor-cite-tool-name-youtube (Βίντεο YouTube)

Fortunately the talk page issue seems to be gone. :)

The YouTube citation in this edit didn't work (it seems like you need at least a title for the video, otherwise it appears as ". . YouTube."). I've updated the citation but figured I should mention it

Summary by ComradeSyntrofos

The edit was restored with minor alterations

Pretty sure it falls under the common sense category, resources not needed

I will remove things that could be doubted for the sake of legitimacy though

Don't worry, I asked him too
