Description Purodha Blissenbach 2009-11-19 00:52:14 UTC
When translating the i18n messages of the Extension:QPoll, I found quite many which were hard to understand, or needed some guesswork, or having minor grammatical glitches in their English versions. While I could correct some, I feel not confident that I would be able to spot the harder to detect or more obscure (potential) errors and inconsistencies - if any are there. I do not know the extension, which is a handicap, and English is not my native language.

So I suggest that, an English native speaker who knows the extension well, should review its messages.

Thank you

Adding many blockers of bug 38638 to the list of "easy" bugs, to mark them as candidates for [[mw:Google Code-in]] tasks (gci2013). If you think this bug is not suitable, remove the keyword.

I still haven't finished new version of the extension with much extended functionality. Most of code is already in (with some parts unfinished) however new features never were documented. I even forget details of new syntax myself. But I spent quite a lot of time on this extension, thus I still have a hope to write a documentation for new features, at least.
