[edit] Current Status

While I haven't been able to contribute much, I've been excited to see the multilingual Welcome page project come together. How soon will these pages be linked on Main Page? I know that some dummies were made for a front page nav bar. wbwolf (t | ed) 23:05, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Here's my understanding of the current status:
  1. Translation of welcome pages: Out of the 8 non-English languages for which we have subtitles, 4 have completely translated welcome pages, 3 have partially translated welcome pages, and 1 has no welcome page at all. In my opinion, this part is ready — once the links are on the main page, the greater attention to these pages will probably drive their quick completion (at least in the case of the partially translated ones).
  2. Toon lists: The idea is to have separate lists of toons for which subtitles have been translated located at Special:Subtitleslist/LANGUAGE_CODE (ultimately, the lists will look something like this). The data for these lists is located at HRWiki:Subtitles/Data, and right now Special:Subtitleslist is automatically generated using this data.
  3. Links on Main Page: A bigger discussion needs to take place concerning where on the main page the links will go. Changing the format of the main page is a big deal, and we want to make the links for different languages easily visible, but not so much that they dominate the main page.
So, with respect to #1, I think we're ready to go, but #2 and #3 need to happen before links can be added to the main page. Trey56 23:42, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
I have a question regarding #2: I hadn't noticed Special:Subtitleslist before but since it's generated automatically from HRWiki:Subtitles/Data, am I right to assume that pages like this one will also be generated automagically? Otherwise I think it would be too much redundant work. Though it would seem to me that these would then also become special pages (perhaps like "Special:Subtitleslist/LANGUAGE CODE" -- is that the current plan?) I guess i'm a little in the dark about this. --Stux 21:49, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, you're exactly right: they'll be located at Special:Subtitleslist/LANGUAGE CODE, and will be magically generated. This is just a prototype of what they'll look like, more or less. Trey56 22:05, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
