Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-05-14 14:18:12 UTC

Please verify if the underscores in the following MediaWiki messages are obsolte
and can be removed or not:

'bugreportspage' => 'Project:Bug_reports',
'disclaimerpage' => 'Project:General_disclaimer',
'privacypage' => 'Project:Privacy_policy',
'protectedpagewarning' => "<strong>WARNING:  This page has been locked so that
only users with sysop privileges can edit it. Be sure you are following the
[[Project:Protected_page_guidelines|protected page guidelines]].</strong>",
'uploadlogpage' => 'Upload_log',
'dellogpage'    => 'Deletion_log',
'protectlogpage' => 'Protection_log',
'blocklogpage'    => 'Block_log',

I came across this issue because
contains / did contain
'edithelppage' => '{{ns:Project}}:Hur_man_redigerar_en_sida',

As far as I understand undersores are *not* required in translations of the "url
type messages". Please confirm.

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

It shouldn't be an issue at all.

Hi Rob!

I did not verify all places where and how these messages. I can tell that I have
seen such headers in the past at different ptojects where the underscore is visible.

I do not have the examples but looking at
you can see that such issues where present for long time.

The real problem is that people working on a translation of
[[special:Allmessage]] could start underscores at titles for pages they would
never see.

My suggestion was that they should be removed if they are obsolete regardles
that they do not harm in the messages listed above.

Underscores should be included only if if they are realy needed as in external
link or hatml urls and in {{ns:foo_talk}}.

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]
