Description Claudi Meneghin 2006-08-04 12:40:34 UTC
Hi, I am admin at Lombard wikipedia. I would like two 'portal' namespaces to be 
activated there: an English-like 'Portal' namespace and a new one 
called 'Purtaal'. The subpage functionality should be activated as well, 
please: see this Lombard portal http://lmo.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purtaal:Catalunya 
and the analogous Catalan one http://ca.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal:Catalunya, 
using the same codes, but producing different effects. Many thanks, 
Claudi Meneghin

So you want two Portal namespaces total?  What should the names of the
respective talk namespaces be?

Comment 4 Claudi Meneghin 2006-08-12 08:38:05 UTC
Hello,
'portal' fits with Eastern Lombard group, whereas 'purtaal' 
fits with Western Lombard. Of course we don't want to 
duplicate this wikipedia. Rather, we would like to do 
some 'façade' work in such a way that most people could 
feel at home. To see an example, please take a look at our 
main page: http://lmo.wikipedia.org. It is made in such a 
way that, by default, the eastern version is shown on even 
days, the western one otherwise. Nevertheless, by using 
bookmarks, everybody is able to see his/her preferred 
version always shown when opening Lombard wikipedia. 
Another related issue are categories: we plan to leave this 
namespace in English, and to make reciprocal inclusions 
between eastern and western categories, when needed. 
Please, take a look at these categories: Category:Pröva U 
and Category:Pröva O . It seems to work. Summarising, this 
is the only case we ask for duplicating a namespace, 
because portals are effective: they give people occasion to 
work (or to be told to work) about issues they feel 
important, and they could do this feeling their dialect to 
be considered: so many unuseful discussion could be 
avoided. This is the only concession to be done with 
regards to dialect-fragmentation of Lombard tongue, with 
the aim in mind to start a brought-back process: but this 
needs people to work. Please let me know if you need I 
provide other details and accept I thank you in advance. 
Sincerely yours,
Claudi
