De pagina "Syndrome Moebii"[recensere]

A while back I made a page called "Syndrome Moebii" for Moebius Syndrome. You later moved the page to "Syndroma Möbius." I understand the change to syndroma, but Moebius is the appropriate Latinization of Möbius, commonly used in Romance languages such as French, Italian, and Spanish.

I'll answer on the article talk page. Andrew Dalby 12:07, 9 Septembris 2014 (UTC)

Help Requested[recensere]

Please evaluate the motto I have on my user page.  I wish it to be a translation of "Peace, Love, Anarchy, Natural Law, Free Markets".  I am fairly certain I have the first four correct; it's only of the fifth one that I have grave uncertainty.

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

Sincerely yours,

…Es ist dies die hebräische oder chaldäische reine Sprache.
Die erste Muttersprache, welche Adam, Sem, Noe redeten, ist eine andere und ist nur noch in einzelnen Mundarten vorhanden. Ihre ersten reinen Töchter sind die Sprache der Baktrier, der Zend und die heilige Sprache der Indier. In diesen Sprachen sind noch Wörter ganz wie in dem tiefen Plattdeutsch meiner Heimat. In dieser Sprache ist auch das Buch geschrieben, das ich im heutigen Ktesiphon am Tigris liegen sehe.
Heber lebte noch zu der Zeit der Semiramis. …

…This language was the pure Hebrew, or Chaldaic.
The first tongue, the mother tongue, spoken by Adam, Shem, and Noah, was different, and it is now extant only in isolated dialects. Its first pure offshoots are the Zend, the sacred tongue of India, and the language of the Bactrians. In those languages, words may be found exactly similar to the Low German of my native place. The book that I see in modern Ctesiphon, on the Tigris, is written in that language.
Heber was still living at the time of Semiramis. …

What do you want by way of mentioning this on Hindi Wikipedia forums? Hindustanilanguage (वार्ता) 10:08, 11 मई 2013 (UTC).
I want to terminate post-Babel course of unreligion, unhistory, unlanguage and unnationality plaguing whole humanity since Tower of Babel once and for all. This will free humanity from its orwellian newspeak misfortune existing since thousands of years. In this way, whole humanity will be reenabled to return to its nominal way, truth and life. 69.41.173.145 (वार्ता) 10:37, 11 मई 2013 (UTC)
This may be a good idea, and thank you for the links above. There are many possible methods of spreading this information via the Internet, but Wikipedia is not a good choice: it will not be able to help you very much (I think you already know this really). All the Wikipedias are based on verifiable information in reliable sources. Information that you add is pretty sure to be deleted unless it is already published in sources that other Wikipedians judge to be reliable. Andrew Dalby 16:02, 19 Novembris 2014 (UTC)

Villa Culturae aut Villa Culturae ?[recensere]

Ave, Andrea. Anceps toponymum istud est, aut Villa nom. s. et Culturae gen. pl. aut Villa nom. s. et Cultura nom. pl. Quia in fontibus Latine invenitur "apud Villam Culturas", mihi videtur Villa acc. s. et Cultura acc. pl. agitur, inde sequitur, nisi fallor, quod utraque nomines substantiva feminina sunt quae sui quoque genitivo Villae Culturarum reddunt. Eo modo Petrus Ronsardus Villá Culturis natus est. Vale. --Leonellus Pons (disputatio) 13:25, 22 Novembris 2014 (UTC)

Optime, mi Leonelle. Nomen mihi admodum insolitum videtur, sed e fonte a te citato recte locativum "Villá Culturis" derivavisti. Da veniam propter dubia mea! Andrew Dalby 13:55, 22 Novembris 2014 (UTC)
Secundum fontem citatum, Bovani villa = la villa de Boinville: "Habet in Bovani villa culturas III"; quod fortasse = "Habet ibi culturas tres." Quid significat hoc verbum cultura, cuius sunt tres? Ager cultus? ¶ Fortasse Boinville non est Couture-sur-Loir, et haec citatio ergo nil ad rem pertinet. IacobusAmor (disputatio) 14:10, 22 Novembris 2014 (UTC)
In "Polyptyque de l'Abbé Irminon" p.227 fontem citatum legere possumus "Habet in Bovani villa culturas III habentes bunuaria XXVIII..." quod mihi sonat "Habet in Bovani villa tres agros cultos (culturas) qui mensi sunt XXVIII bunuariorum (Francogallice bonier quid agrorum mensio est iugerum aripennumque non absimilis) et qui possunt seminari de modiis frumenti C".--Leonellus Pons (disputatio) 15:07, 22 Novembris 2014 (UTC)

Rogatiuncula[recensere]

Andrew, translating from other Wikipedias is generally not to my likings, and therefore I haven't taken much interest in the translation discussion. For the article on dilemma captivi, however, I snatched the table from fi:Vangin dilemma, making a few cosmetic changes in it. Except for the sketch of the table, "dilemma captivi" is entirely based on external sources. Now, if I need to give credits to the source of the table, could you please indicate how to do that. I'm afraid I haven't got the σπλάγχνα to read through a long discussion replete with Administrese (of which I've got an overdose in the university). Vale, Martinus a.k.a. Neander (disputatio) 13:15, 31 Ianuarii 2015 (UTC)

I did it for you -- it was the work of a moment. I created a disputatio page for your article and put the formula in there as you will see.
I don't do much direct translation either, but I guess it is a good habit to acknowledge the source when we do :) Andrew Dalby 13:26, 31 Ianuarii 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, Andrew, but the thing is that I have not translated the article (not an iota of it) from the Finnish wikipedia, but only snatced the sketch of the table from it. Neander (disputatio) 13:27, 31 Ianuarii 2015 (UTC)
Oh, I see, I'm so sorry, I was in the middle of John Singer Sargent's Le Verre de porto and I didn't read your message with sufficient care. We can add to that formula the optional indication "partim". If you're happy with that, please take it that it will be done (Maria Martelli had already observed that this would be a good option). But if one wanted to give a more detailed and specific acknowledgment, one would simply have to write it out in real language on the talk page. We're getting towards the lower limits of what's necessary. If in an academic article you would have acknowledged the fact that some previous author gave you the makings of a diagram or table, then it's sensible to acknowledge it here too. If it's too minor for that, then no need to do it. Andrew Dalby 13:41, 31 Ianuarii 2015 (UTC)
Thanks again for the backgounding! Yes, I now think a more specific — if any at all — acknowledgment is in order in ths case. Therefore, I decided to delete the discussion page and added an acknowledgment as a note to the table. Thanks for letting me to use you as an arbiter elegantiarum! Neander (disputatio) 16:35, 31 Ianuarii 2015 (UTC)

Salve![recensere]

Salutem tibi do. Anglicene dicere gratum est? I hope this is the proper way to contact you; my apologies if it's not.

My apologies also for not contacting you sooner. I believe Ryan McGrady may have told you about me and my students; we're looking at Vicipaedia as part of our advanced Latin course on Lucretius this semester. As part of that course we plan on revising the Lucretius article. That will be later on, of course, once we've gotten some practice in. As I'm sure you've noticed, we've started with some basic work on the pages for Spokane and Gonzaga University. It's a small class; just five students. You can see them all on the Historia of the Spokane page. The students have really enjoyed learning the basics of editing, linking, and creating pages. They've also been very impressed at how quickly members of the Vicipaedia community have contributed to the work.

I just wanted to formally introduce myself. Ryan said you might be willing to help us out with our project. That's very kind of you and we would be most grateful.

All the best,

Dave Oosterhuis Dr Ostorius (disputatio) 01:15, 27 Februarii 2015 (UTC)

Oh, it's you, Dr Ostorius! And it's the Spokane people! That's very good. I was afraid the students mentioned by Ryan would turn out to be another group, who appeared about the same time, whose contributions were much more difficult to improve. You are all welcome to continue to ask questions here (or at the talk pages of the articles you are working on). I am travelling for the next 2 days and am not on line so much, but others will of course help too. I am sure Lucretius will repay your attentions when you get to him. You probably already know this, but if you happen to start any new pages you need to save them from being classed "Non stipula" so as not to waste your work: you can check the minimum requirements for a page by looking at Formula:Non stipula. Half-done pages can be marked by authors with Formula:In progressu (which asks for patience) or Formula:Succurre (which invites help). Andrew Dalby 11:43, 27 Februarii 2015 (UTC)
Thank you! That's very helpful. Safe travels! Dr Ostorius (disputatio) 16:04, 27 Februarii 2015 (UTC)

Communia Francica[recensere]

Dear Andrew,

if you explain me:

1) why had all wikipedias used in the past (but also now) the pages on the French Communes to enhance their quantity of artcles. The most of these wikis have shorter and worse articles than the ones I created; 2) are you sure that in the future with bots we could not add new external sources or change the pages of the no more existing communes (other wikis has pages on old communes)? 3) if nobody adds new articles, how can we increase these Wikipedia (last week I was practily one of the few who created new articles); 4) I would do with pleasure other less dull and boring work therefore I will stop here with la.wikipedia.org.

Best regards

Massimo--Helveticus montanus (disputatio) 10:36, 2 Martii 2015 (UTC)

No, I don't want you to stop, Massimo! I will answer on your talk page. Andrew Dalby 12:23, 2 Martii 2015 (UTC)
Dear Andrew, in any case I was already doing a remaking work on old communia pages e.g the oldest ones Index communium praefecturae Indis(now I am at letter G), and those of Corsica. Now I will try to be more careful and add more external links and especially those links which will not be delated also in the case the commune will be united with an other one Ciao--Helveticus montanus (disputatio) 10:08, 3 Martii 2015 (UTC) Helveticus montanus (disputatio) 10:08, 3 Martii 2015 (UTC)

Arsenius Boca[recensere]

Salve, carissime Andreas, quomodo te habes?

I opened this page, but in Wikidata it looks 29 September and 29 October, because in Russian page there's 29 October, may be for Orthodox Calendar?

Thanks a lot for your precious help!

Rei Momo (disputatio) 09:34, 20 Martii 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Rex. First, there is no need to worry. Wikidata is based on all the Wikipedias, and sometimes shows differences or inconsistencies because of that. You need not change your information simply because of Wikidata. You can let it pass.
But if you want to find out why Wikidata has two dates, you can look at the Wikidata page (click on the word "Vicidata" in the box): perhaps it is different calendars; perhaps some Wikipedias have written a different date, and they may be right or wrong! It seems, from what you say, that this is the case here. So you can look further, if you want to, to see whether the Russian Wikipedia cites a source for the date or has a footnote about it. This might lead you to decide that the other date is more accurate: then you can change your text, and cite the source. Andrew Dalby 09:51, 20 Martii 2015 (UTC)
Thanks a lot, this week end I'll look something to put the sources. Rei Momo (disputatio) 12:08, 20 Martii 2015 (UTC)
It can't be the different calendars; since 1900, the Julian and Gregorian calendars have only been 13 days apart. This site looks somewhat official, and gives 29 September, but there may be an even better source somewhere. Lesgles (disputatio) 18:46, 20 Martii 2015 (UTC)

Scusa[recensere]

Prima di dire che c'è una edit war, ti prego di prendere in considerazione che non sto facendo vandalismo... forse avrò messo solamente delle fonti in maniera sbagliata. Ma se Lei è più intelligente e più colto, me lo dica. Perché con me non ci casca. Arrivederla. Sacreum (disputatio) 14:14, 25 Martii 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for writing. I understand, there is no suggestion of vandalism. And I'm sure I am not more intelligent!
When I think of moving a page, I try to consider alternatives (not just one name, and not just one source). The purpose is to choose the best name. It often helps to discuss the choice with other editors.
But if we have no Latin name (as with many French communes) it is always very good to find a Latin name and to move to it. Thank you for doing this! There is no perfect source, but Graesse is a very good source, and your work is really useful. Andrew Dalby 14:24, 25 Martii 2015 (UTC)

Vicidata[recensere]

Ciao Andrew, how are you? The data in vicidata about Sancto Bernardo Menthonensi are completely wrong, how do you correct them?--Helveticus montanus (disputatio) 16:02, 8 Maii 2015 (UTC)

This can often happen, because the Wikipedias do not always agree. In this case, the dates on Wikidata are taken from the Russian Wikipedia, and what sources they used I don't know.
It is not essential to correct it -- it may sometimes help the reader to know that there are different opinions. But if we want to correct it, we can.
The first step is to add the correct data. This is how to add a correct date of birth, for example:
Go to the Wikidata page. Make sure your language is "Latina" -- you choose your language at the top of the window. Then, in the section "Statements", scroll down to the word "Natus". You see the false entry "923". Below, on the right, you have the option "addere". Click it, and type in the box the correct date "1020". Then click "save".
The result of this will be that our Vicidata box will now display two dates, "923; 1020".
The second step, if you choose to do this, is to delete the incorrect information. Beside the entry "natus" ... "923" click on "recensere". Then click on "remove". Then click "save".
Try it, Massimo, and see if it works! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 17:08, 8 Maii 2015 (UTC)

Usor:Sacreum[recensere]

Vale Andrea! I wanted to inform you about this fact. The user Sacreum on Provincia Cremonensis is doing lot of confusion: in particulary he deletes much of my work and he makes many mistakes; often not getting their sources. It should be stopped.--Nuada (disputatio) 10:28, 8 Iunii 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your message, Nuada. I have noticed that there is much activity at Provincia Cremonensis. I suggest that you first discuss the problems with Sacreum directly at Disputatio Usoris:Sacreum. If Sacreum replies, we will see whether agreement is possible. If Sacreum does not reply, and continues to delete good information or to add incorrect information, we can take other action. I will watch the page.
It is probably best for you to write to Sacreum in Italian. My impression (possibly mistaken) is that Sacreum does not understand English or Latin well. If you write in Italian, I will watch the conversation. If necessary I or another magistratus (perhaps Helveticus?) will be able to add a comment. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 12:02, 8 Iunii 2015 (UTC)

De capsa hominis quaestio[recensere]

Salve, Andrea! Gratias ago quam maximas pro categoriis, quas commentationi Miles Davis addidisti. Etiam capsa hominis mihi placet, sed hoc velim quaerere, num capsa illa ad dextram partem paginae poni possit. Potesne capsam ita mutare, ut alterautra positione uti liceat? Neander (disputatio) 07:43, 9 Iunii 2015 (UTC)

Salve et tu, Neander! Locum sinistrum nactus sum ne imagines, quae iam in permultis paginis brevissimis ad dextram partem positae sunt, inutiliter submitterentur. Si pagina iam eandem imaginem continet, quattuor solutiones iam habemus et saepe applicamus:
  1. Imaginem iam positam in pagina retinere, rebus valde utilibus in rubricam additis (si imago bona est, id facere soleo)
  2. Imaginem aliam apud Vicidata promovere (id quod rarius facio)
  3. Imaginem delere (id quod tu fecisti) ...
  4. Capsam delere (est enim "facultativa")
  5. Ita, pro certo, possibile erit locum capsae variabilem reddere. Quomodo (admitto) hoc tempore nescio. In re capsarum faciendarum, etsi tu non es Cicero, ego sum Tiro. Conabor ... sed fortasse solutiones 1 et 2, mihi simpliciores, antea temptabo (scaevola enim sum, censeoque te minime partem paginae sinistram, sed coniunctionem imaginum similium arcere). Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 13:15, 9 Iunii 2015 (UTC)
Solutiones 1 et 2 applicavi. Potes imagines movere sicut vis! Sed si non placet, dic mihi. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 13:42, 9 Iunii 2015 (UTC)
Iterum gratias tibi ago pro solutionibus propositis! Imaginem ad dextram positam abstuli non solum ob similitudinem sed etiam ideo, quod duae imagines parallelae mea quidem opinione nimis artum spatium ipsi textui relinquunt (non enim maximo spatio monitorii uti soleo). Imaginum mutationes quas fecisti ad tempus conservabo. Ubi primum in textu evolvendo ad annos 1950 pervenero, imaginem ad annum 1955 pertinentem deorsum in loco apto ponam; quo facto imaginem in initio positam in loco liberato ponam. In capsis faciendis si tu Tiro, ego Tirunculus. :-) Neander (disputatio) 20:11, 9 Iunii 2015 (UTC)
Bene! Conabor igitur ... sed licet capsam delere si molestum esse videtur. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 20:35, 9 Iunii 2015 (UTC)

De hac re plura cogitans, locum capsae mutare hoc tempore abstinere volo. Rationem aliam huius formae et huius loci, supra omissam, nunc addo. Haec capsa res continet ex alio datorum thesauro illatas, Vicipaediae certe socio et amico, sed verificationi nostrae non subiecto. Locum igitur, ubi nos rarissime capsas imaginesque a nobismet ipsis verificatas et rubricatas monstramus, gratissimum censui. Eadem ratione formam capsae ab omnibus aliis differentem, umbrá cyaneá e paginis nostris distinctam et prominentem, praetuli.

Capsas huius formae creavi praecipue quia lectoribus haud paucis utiles esse possunt, sed etiam quia multae paginae Vicipaedianae capsis male constructis atque embryonicis farciuntur, pulchritudinem et utilitatem Vicipaediae nostrae (mea mente) nocentes laboremque infinitum, operariis carentibus, silenter postulantes. Hoc modo igitur duabus necessitatibus labore minimo respondere coepi. Sed ad tertiam necessitatem, q.e. tuam, non respondi. Mi paenitet! Rursus te suadeo: capsam simpliciter remove si vis. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 20:35, 10 Iunii 2015 (UTC)

Maximam gratiam habeo, Andrea, quod tantam complendae voluntati meae operam dedisti. Capsae antea mihi displicuerunt, quod duplices nuntios acervant atque interdum lineas textús nimis coartant (mihi saltem qui latissimo visu uti non soleo). Sed capsam hominis paulum deorsum movi inque initio posui eandem imaginem, quam tu antea, et denique novam eiusdem aetatis imaginem addidi loco ita liberato. Nunc puto capsam illam utiliter exhiberi. Neander (disputatio) 09:06, 11 Iunii 2015 (UTC)

Hello Andrew[recensere]

Hello Andrew, can you please translate this from Latin into English? I need to understand what does it say and maybe you could help? Here it is:

"Fragmentum ad Antonini Pii tempora pertinere recte collegit Nesselhauf cum e lapidis natura tum e nominibus Fabiani consulis et Pharasmanis Iberorum regis. Si anni aetatis illius, e quibus ultimum par coiisulum notum est, aeque atque anni in fastos Ostienses relati excluduntur, non restat, nisi ut de annis 141 — 144, 149 — 150, 157 — 159 cogitemus, Heriberto Nesselhauf auctore de annis 141 — 144 potissimum, nam Pharasmanes primis Antonini Pii annis potius quam posterioribus Romam venit. Si Fabianus, ut editor proposait, re vera idem est ac L. Annius Fabianus tituli CIL III 7972 (Groag, PIR2 A 643), praeses praetorius Daciae inter annos 135 — 157 (sic Stein, Dazien, p. 26)."

Thanks again. Jaqeli (disputatio) 11:27, 10 Iunii 2015 (UTC)

Try this :) "Herbert Nesselhauf rightly gathered, from the nature of the stone combined with the names of the consul Fabianus and of the Iberian king Pharasmanes, that the fragment belongs to the times of Antoninus Pius. If the years of Antoninus' age, of which the last pair of consuls is known, along with the years listed in the en:Fasti Ostienses, are excluded, we must think only of the years 141 — 144, 149 — 150, 157 — 159, and according to Nesselhauf principally 141 - 144, because Pharasmanes came to Rome in the early years of Antoninus, not the later years. If Fabianus, as the editor proposed, is indeed the same as the L. Annius Fabianus of the inscription CIL III 7972 (Groag, PIR2 A 643), who was praetorian praeses of Dacia between the years 135 — 157 (as stated by Stein, Dazien, p. 26) ..." This last sentence is incomplete. Either because I don't know enough of the context, or because I'm not clever enough, I don't understand the logic of the passage I have underlined: perhaps someone else will see this and be able to improve my translation at that point (or indeed elsewhere).

Calendarium Hebraicum[recensere]

Hi, Andrew. I'm currently translating a template I've written for several other wikis (mainly just because). I've got it most of the way there; see Disputatio usoris:StevenJ81#Calendarium Hebraicum. (I had originally considered also adding the Roman calendar nomenclature, but until/unless I work on a separate template for that purpose I'm not doing it here and now.)

With respect to the Hebrew months: If you look just above the draft template, you'll see the names of the Hebrew months as the parser function spits them out here. They appear to correspond to common English spelling, and do not have separate genitive forms on this wiki. (They do on others, like hewiki, for example; I think it depends whether something has been programmed in.) Separately, the months are named at Calendarium Hebraicum, with different spelling. So here are my questions:

  1. Is the spelling at Calendarium Hebraicum reliable/authoritative for Hebrew months in Latin?
  2. Would one typically decline them? If so, can you help me with genitives for them? ("Sivan" would need to be in genitive just as much as "Iunius" does.)

Thank you! StevenJ81 (disputatio) 00:22, 11 Iunii 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Steven. The first answer is easy: one treats such foreign words as indeclinable. The Latin eye, seeing "XI Iunii" below and a parallel locution above, would understand that "Sivan" is in the genitive case. No problem there.
The person to tell us how best to spell the Hebrew names from the Latin point of view is Usor:Iustinus. Well, he is the chief contributor at Calendarium Hebraicum and if you look at the page history you see some of his reasoning. I would rely on that page since he produced it, and, if you have questions, it's best to ask him directly :) Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 12:01, 11 Iunii 2015 (UTC)
OK. Thanks. I'll ask him directly. StevenJ81 (disputatio) 13:40, 11 Iunii 2015 (UTC)

Follow-up[recensere]

Still working on this at my user talk page. Thanks. Here's a heads-up/question, though. Once we've settled on a schema for the months, I have two choices of how to proceed. I could create an "inner" template that simply converts the months as the server spits them out into months as we've decided to transliterate them here. Alternatively, since the server isn't really putting out a Latin version of the months anyway, we could try to program the interface to do that. It is a localization that the MediaWiki software is built to take routinely, though: the month Tamuz (in English, and as this wiki also currently names it) comes out as תמוז in the Hebrew and Yiddish wikis, Tamouz on frwiki, and so forth. Can you do that as an administrator? Do I have to put in a request at whatever they're calling bugzilla now? Does it require a formal community consensus? I don't want to make you or anyone else go through a lot of work, but if it's easy and straightforward to do, it would be a better way to go, IMO. Just curious what you know/think. StevenJ81 (disputatio) 16:20, 14 Iunii 2015 (UTC)

Yes, and there are some other variables that it would be at least equally desirable for the server to convert to Latin (for example, the dates of birth "7. century" etc. (wrong in every language) that come across to us from Wikidata). My knowledge in this area is small to vanishing. We might ask UV, and he might look in here anyway. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 17:01, 14 Iunii 2015 (UTC)
While it would be possible for a Vicipaedia admin to configure the Hebrew month names for la.wikipedia only, the better choice would be to add the translations to translatewiki: so that not only la.wikipedia will (automatically) use them, but other projects as well. You yourself can register at translatewiki: and add the translations once we have reached an (informal) consensus here. Here is the list of Latin translations for you to change:
Greetings, --UV (disputatio) 19:00, 14 Iunii 2015 (UTC)
Thank you, @UV. I registered at translatewiki and got cleared over the weekend. I put in one of these as a test edit (m11 nominative to "Ab," since I didn't think that was actually controversial) to see how it works. If everything works ok with that, I'll fill in the rest once we come to an agreement elsewhere about a consensus. (@Iustinius agrees that these are considered invariable nouns, so nominative and genitive versions will be identical.) Will keep you both posted, too. (Once this stuff is cleaned up, I can start helping you figure out how to do some of these other things, too, Andrew.) StevenJ81 (disputatio) 13:44, 15 Iunii 2015 (UTC)
Test successful, Andrew and @UV. If you look at Disputatio usoris:StevenJ81#Calendarium Hebraicum, you'll see that one of the months is now rendered "Ab" by the server, because I edited it at translatewiki per the above. At this point I will start updating the six of the twelve Hebrew month names for which there appears to be no question or dispute (see at Disputatio usoris:StevenJ81#Calendarium Hebraicum II, while awaiting consensus on the rest. (Your contributions would be welcome; I'm especially keen to get a read from you on the "u"/"v" dichotomy in three of the names.)
Separately, if you can start describing other things you'd like me to try to look at fixing from translatewiki, I'll try. StevenJ81 (disputatio) 12:59, 17 Iunii 2015 (UTC)

Closing questions[recensere]

Hi, Andrew. I closed the discussion on my talk page. The last transliterations are being processed in translatewiki, and should be here in a few days. So I have two remaining questions, mainly because I haven't studied enough Latin to really understand subtleties of declension:

  1. Translatewiki had a phrase it was requesting translation of: "Name of month in Hebrew calendar." Name is nominative (no pun intended), and month is genitive. But are the others genitive or ablative?
  2. What should I call my template when I publish it? I was thinking "Dies Hebraicus," but do I have that right?

After this, I'll leave you alone for a while. (Separately, I am trying to work with UV and Wikidata on the other problem.) But thanks very much for your help! StevenJ81 (disputatio) 13:47, 23 Iunii 2015 (UTC)

Genitive or ablative, you could look at it either way. They are months of the Hebrew calendar, or they are names by, with or in the Hebrew calendar. I'd go for the genitive, but I bet the next speaker will differ.
"Dies Hebraicus" seems OK to me; or plural, "Dies Hebraici". All of the above assumes that you are happy with the term "Hebraicus". I think of it rather as the Jewish calendar, hence "Iudaicus", but you'll know better on this. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 13:56, 23 Iunii 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. I'll go for singular, because the template shows you today's date only (on both calendars). So it represents only one day. Hebraicus/Iudaicus: Good question. I've always called it "Hebrew calendar" myself, and that tends to be the name I hear in English, though not exclusively. Beyond that, a quick survey of Wikipedias shows that German-derived languages (including Yiddish) use something related to Jewish, while Latin-derived languages (including Djudeo-Espanyol), as well as Hebrew, use something related to Hebrew. (The above is probably why English is a mixed bag ...) So I'm going to stick with "Hebraicus" for now. StevenJ81 (disputatio) 15:41, 23 Iunii 2015 (UTC)
Done. Thanks again for all your help. (Would you mind checking if I wrote the one bit of documentation correctly?) StevenJ81 (disputatio) 14:50, 24 Iunii 2015 (UTC)

Bots[recensere]

I apologize for sending this message in English.

You are receiving this message because a technical change may affect a bot, gadget, or user script you have been using. The breaking change involves API calls. This change has been planned for two years. The WMF will start making this change on 30 June 2015. A partial list of affected bots can be seen here: https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2015-June/081931.html This includes all bots that are using pywikibot compat. Some of these bots have already been fixed. However, if you write user scripts or operate a bot that uses the API, then you should check your code, to make sure that it will not break.

What, exactly, is breaking? The "default continuation mode" for action=query requests to api.php will be changing to be easier for new coders to use correctly. To find out whether your script or bot may be affected, then search the source code (including any frameworks or libraries) for the string "query-continue". If that is not present, then the script or bot is not affected. In a few cases, the code will be present but not used. In that case, the script or bot will continue working.

This change will be part of 1.26wmf12. It will be deployed to test wikis (including mediawiki.org) on 30 June, to non-Wikipedias (such as Wiktionary) on 1 July, and to all Wikipedias on 2 July 2015.

If your bot or script is receiving the warning about this upcoming change (as seen at https://www.mediawiki.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=allpages ), it's time to fix your code!

Either of the above solutions may be tested immediately, you'll know it works because you stop seeing the warning.

Do you need help with your own bot or script? Ask questions in e-mail on the mediawiki-api or wikitech-l mailing lists. Volunteers at m:Tech or w:en:WP:Village pump (technical) or w:en:Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard may also be able to help you.

Are you using someone else's gadgets or user scripts? Most scripts are not affected. To find out if a script you use needs to be updated, then post a note at the discussion page for the gadget or the talk page of the user who originally made the script.
