Sysop request[edit source]

Requesting to be given the Administrator user-right on this wiki, in my role as the Program Committee chair. Specific use case is to lock, and still be able to edit, the Submissions page (and related subpages, and the Program pages, if necessary). These are official descriptions of conference submission documentation that must match the submission form on a different website and should not be changed - at least not without the explicit knowledge of the program chair/conference organiser :-) A similar story for the program, once it is built.

Done. --MarcoAurelio (talk) 12:43, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Bureaucrats & Admins from organising committee[edit source]

Following the discussion on Meta at Stewad requests/Permissions#Wittylama (which references the discussion immediately above on this page), User:MarcoAurelio has given me Bureaucrat rights on this wiki. I've now added three new admins: User:Discott (Conference Chair), User:Emnamizouni & User:Flixtey (program committee co-chairs) and also another bureaucrat User:EYoung (WMF) - the WMF event manager.

Sysop/translate admin[edit source]

Hello! I'd like to request sysop/translation admin to help with maintenance; I've had these rights on wm2016, wm2015. Best, L235 (talk) 01:28, 5 February 2018 (UTC)

Done. Thanks for your willingness to help. Wittylama (talk) 07:04, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
Dear User:L235 - since you've asked for translate-admin rights in particular, I've got a request for you! Today I've been trying to make the 'header' templates consistent across the five tabs - Home, Call for submissions, Volunteer, Sponsor, Attend - and I'm having some difficulty making sure they are correctly formatted. I will admit a limited understanding of how the <translate></translate> tags are supposed to work properly. See my edit history from 7 Jan. for my attempts to clean up. The pages in question are Header_1 and numerically through to Header_5, and their respective /en subpages. Could you please take a look and ensure they are appropriate, consistent, and don't have trailing 'onlyinclude' or 'translate' tags showing up, especially when logged in with English as MyLanguage. [courtesy notification of user:Pbsouthwood and User:AlvaroMolina. Sincerely, Wittylama (talk) 23:17, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
I see that User:Brackenheim is getting involved in this issue! Thank you. Can you tell me if the above question is clear and if you believe the issue is 'resolved'? From what I can see in my login settings everything appears correct except header_5 when used on the Attend page (as the time that I write this). Wittylama (talk) 01:09, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
Wittylama: Just wanted you to know I just saw this and will try to take a look soon. For some reason, I'm not getting pings on this wiki – I'll look into that as well. Thanks! L235 (talk) 07:23, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

Translation[edit source]

Is there a primer on the translation process somewhere? I have very little idea of how it works and what the associated tabs and templates do, which is causing problems when I try to work out how to change things without breaking anything. Pbsouthwood (talk) 07:52, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

I don't know that much about the translation system, but maybe I can help. If you're interested in that system, you can find more information here: mw:Help:Extension:Translate/Page translation example Or just ask me ;-) Cheers, --Brackenheim (talk) 09:09, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, I will read and see if it helps. Cheers, Pbsouthwood (talk) 17:33, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
