Kutoka Wikipedia, kamusi elezo huru
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Hello Neno. Welcome to Wikipedia. In reply to your post on the mailing list, there are two ways the text in the menus and options can be changed. The easiest way is to edit the MediaWiki namespace. This is a collection of templates that can be edited by an administrator and will take immediate effect on the site. There is a list of them at Special:Allmessages.

The other way is to create a language.php file. One has been started at meta:LanguageSw.php but I'd recommend you check out a more recent one to start from since some things have changed since them. You could base it one which is complete such as LanguageDe.php which you can get from SourceForge.

The Language.php file lets you change everything you can change with the MediaWiki namespace, and some additional options such as the namespace titles, names of the special pages, month and days-of-the-week names and some of the preferences options. Any changes in the MediaWiki namespace overwrite those in the Language.php file. You can also ask a developer to make these changes without having to fill in the php file by asking at non-development tasks for developers.

To edit the MediaWiki namespace, you need to be an administrator. You can request to be one at meta:requests for permissions, but since you've only made five edits, it seems a little soon to be doing that. This wiki does have one admin (Marcos) but he has been absent since the start of August. I'd suggest you familiarize yourself with wiki editing a bit more and get some experience before asking for adminship just to be sure you understand how the namespaces work.

Let me know on my talk page at the English Wikipedia if I can be of any more help. Angela 11:55, 28 Sep 2004 (UTC)

kiswahili-speaking friends[hariri chanzo]

You don't happen to know other people who speak swahili, do you? This place needs a bit of life. Also, welcome to sw. :) Sj 20:32, 28 Sep 2004 (UTC)

More about translating the interface[hariri chanzo]

Hi. You can use the language.php one, but that includes a lot of uneccesary parts that aren't needed in every translations. You might find it easier to choose one of the other languages.

The corrections you make won't show up until a developer uploads the file to CVS. Adding it as a patch to MediaZilla: is probably the quickest way to get it uploaded.

When I said about getting experience with the other namespaces, I meant ones like the Wikipedia or template namespaces, which are not protected. However, I do understand your concern that you can't get experience with the MediaWiki namespace. I've actually made you an admin now, although I'm converned it's a bit early so please be careful not to edit any MediaWiki pages you don't understand. Some can cause the site to stop working!

You might find the administrators' how-to guide on the English Wikipedia a useful place to start, along with the MediaWiki namespace help pages on meta.

If you have any problems, please let me know on my talk page at en. Good luck with this new wiki. Angela 12:21, 30 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Hi Neno. I think this arabic converter on Elian's site will help you to use Arabic characters. Angela 14:32, 2 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Hello[hariri chanzo]

Welcome to sw, I don't speak Swahili regretfully, and visit here to make interlang links between other projects. There are some confusions on interlang links for example between Daktari and other languages' articles (there are two sorts of articles on the others; medical doctor and doctral degree), I wish you would fix and order the links on the page, then I will be help to order the links on other Wikipedias to Swahili ... but obviously it's time for you to configure the site itself :) I wish sw goes well with your effort. Cheers. --Aphaia 10:09, 4 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Thank you for pointing out this problem, I didn't write the Daktari page, but now I tried to fix it a little bit.Neno

Invitation for meta[hariri chanzo]

Hello Neno, thank you for your correction of Daktari article. Today I would like to let you know some multilingual coordination on meta. That is:

  • m:Translation of the week Each week we translate a short article into every Wikipedia. It helps to add a new material to our participating project.
  • m:Reports. Elian has started this ambitious and helpful project. Would you like to report the current situation of Swahili or other wikipedias which you know very well?

If I read your report on sw:, it will be my great pleasure. Cheers. --Aphaia 22:19, 5 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Format Problem[hariri chanzo]

Neno, I send this problem to several of you admin people as most of you have been very kimya these days. Who can fix it? --Kipala 22:32, 13 Septemba 2006 (UTC)

Hello Kipala. Now that you are back, I would like to draw your attention to something which I find difficult to explain in Swahili. Have you noticed that since a while the lines that separate the sections of the articles are visible inside the taxoboxes? This is not the case in other Wikipedias. Can this be fixed? ChriKo 21:42, 13 Septemba 2006 (UTC)


Greetings from sw-wiki[hariri chanzo]

Neno, you are one of the admins who seems to have been lost on sw-wiki. We have to get someone back. Are you still around or out of it? Salamu --Kipala 20:24, 31 Januari 2007 (UTC)

Kura ya kuamua juu ya wakabidhi waliopotea[hariri chanzo]

Karibu kutembelea ukurasa wa wakabidhi na kuamua juu ya wenzetu waliopewa haki za wakabidhi lakini hawakuonekana tangu miezi mingi: Wikipedia:Wakabidhi#Kura_ya_kuondoa_wakabidhi_waliopotea. Tuliwahi kujadili swali hili mwaka uliopita (tazama kwenye ukurasa unaotajwa, juu ya pendekezo) ; sasa njia imeonekana. Kipala (majadiliano) 05:31, 1 Oktoba 2010 (UTC)
