Description 2006-02-15 00:58:21 UTC
We, community of Japanese Wikipedia, would like to request new name spaces for
portal pages and its talk pages of Japanese Wikipedia. We have voted for the
name of portal pages, and have decided as "Portal:".

Could you set the 100th name space as "Portal:" and 101st, its talk page, as
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2006-02-22 22:13:35 UTC
ja.wikinews has ポータル. Consistent or not?
Comment 2 2006-02-25 02:50:19 UTC
We voted "ポータル" or "Potal", we took "Potal".
Comment 3 2006-02-25 02:52:29 UTC
I think it is because of "Wikipedia:" for project name space in jawp, while "
ウィキニュース:" in jawn.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2006-02-26 02:38:47 UTC
Comment 5 2006-02-26 14:50:40 UTC
Thank you.
Comment 6 2006-02-26 23:25:38 UTC
The name space of the talk page is to be "Potal‐ノート" instead of "Portal-ノー
ト:" (not hyphen).
Comment 7 Brion Vibber 2006-02-27 00:22:39 UTC
I do not understand comment #6. If there is something further to change,
please explain.
Comment 8 2006-02-27 04:02:53 UTC
In jawp, every talk name space has "‐ノート", not "-ノート" (except user talk page).
is good because it has "‐ノート", but
is not good because it has hypen before "ノート".
Please change "Portal-ノート" to "Potal‐ノート".
Comment 9 Brion Vibber 2006-02-27 05:49:47 UTC
Change it from hyphen to hyphen?
Comment 10 2006-02-27 08:11:07 UTC
‐ instead of hypen.
Comment 11 2006-02-28 01:52:26 UTC
I mean, we'd like to change it from - to ‐.
Comment 12 Brion Vibber 2006-02-28 08:39:21 UTC
Okay, we've got several things here:
1) This bug report is currently marked FIXED. Is it currently correct or not?
2) I've seen both "Portal" and "Potal" above. Can you please confirm the correct spelling?
3) We have two visually identical characters. Not helpful. :)
Comment 13 2006-02-28 09:17:07 UTC
1) I'm sorry that I don't know the usage of the option. What shall I do? It is
still to be fixed.
2) & 3) I'm sorry for misspelling. I'm a wrong English speaker. "Portal‐ノート:"
is correct. Could you copy "Portal‐ノート:"?

Comment 14 Brion Vibber 2006-02-28 21:15:39 UTC
Ok fixed.
Comment 15 2006-03-01 09:59:20 UTC
Thank you. I've confirmed it.
