Description Bence Damokos 2010-06-30 19:04:46 UTC
The signature button in the Hungarian version of the new edit toolbar should produce the text "– ~~~~" instead of "--~~~~". (That is, an em-dash+space, preferably a non-breaking space, instead of two en-dashes preceding the actual signature.)

More generally, the signature string or at least its prefix should be available for localisation.
Comment 1 Roan Kattouw 2010-06-30 19:05:47 UTC
I suspect this is not about Hungarian as a language but about huwiki specifically? In that case, it should be changed in [[MediaWiki:Common.js]]
Comment 2 Bence Damokos 2010-06-30 19:10:05 UTC
A workaround is being built for the huwiki common.js, but it is more about the language, I should think.
(Hungarian makes an orthographic distinction between the em- and en-dashes and for signature purposes the longer em-dash is preferred.)

Different cultures have different practices of dash usage. For example, while the substitution of em-dash with two en-dashes looks tolerable for an English speaker, this is pretty uncommon in Russian practice, consequentially it looks strange. Spacing is also different.

So yes, localizing this would be highly appropriate.
Comment 4 Tisza Gergő 2010-07-22 19:33:06 UTC
Until this gets fixed, a Common.js-based workaround for interested parties:

if ( typeof $j != 'undefined' && window.wgWikiEditorEnabledModules && wgWikiEditorEnabledModules.toolbar ) {
  addOnloadHook( function() {
    $j( '#wpTextbox1' ).bind( 'wikiEditor-toolbar-buildSection-main', function( event, section ) { = '– ~~' + '~~';
