Description Dan Jacobson 2009-05-12 22:19:09 UTC
Please just use |{{int:preferences}}]] instead of
 $ cd messages; perl -nlwe 'for(/\Q[[Special:Preferences\E.*\]/g){print}' MessagesEn.php
 [[Special:Preferences|{{SITENAME}} preferences]]
 [[Special:Preferences|account preferences]]
 [[Special:Preferences|user preferences]]
 [[Special:Preferences|user preferences]]
 [[Special:Preferences|your user preferences]]
 [[Special:Preferences|user preferences]]
 Same for other languages too. Speaking of which,
 $ perl -nlwe "if(/'welcome/../',$/)"'{$h{$ARGV}.=$_}END{for(keys %h){$q++ if $h{$_}!~/SITENAME/}print $q}' *
 of them mention {{SITENAME}} in the welcome string. Perhaps don't.
 $ perl -nlwe "if(/'welcome/../',$/)"'{$h{$ARGV}.=$_}END{for(keys %h){$q++ if $h{$_}!~/Preferences/}print $q}' *
 of them give a link. The rest should too.

 OK, let's have a look at a few:
 $ perl -nlwe "if(/'welcome/../',$/){print}" *Zh*
 'welcomecreation'            => '== 欢迎, $1! ==

 'welcomecreation'            => '<h2>歡迎,$1!</h2><p>您的帳號已經建立,不要忘記設置[[Special:Preferences|{{SITENAME}}個人參數]]。</p>',
 'welcomecreation'            => '<h2>歡迎,$1!</h2><p>您的帳號已經建立,不要忘記設置{{SITENAME}}個人參數。</p>',
 We observe wide variation.

Plain words are easier for translators and don't cause problems with grammar. The rest seems just to random things piggy-bagged in the bug report, which are just about the fact that not all translations are maintained and 100% up-to-date.
