@John Smith:
are you going to continue editing the Duck page?
Since it is not marked as being edited and it is not finished, we should not leave it in that state... Specially that page! :?

When updating the pages to the new terminology and you find that the images are out of date (includes old terminology), should the images be re-uploaded with the new terminology or would we have a second sprint for images only?
Specifically this page is out of date:

I think this will be another sprint. I am also thinking out some way to standartize the screenshots taking process, but it's kind of long-term goal...

I am rewriting "convert"

Genete wrote : Two new convert types and its reverse manipulations (zelgadis). Ready to be included.
Can i have exact info to put them ?
or maybe zelgadis, you want to do it ?

See(:ya!

Nota : Convert is a such long page ! ... maybe can be fractured ?
i did't said fracked ! :-O
If that solved, please edit initial title adding [SOLVED]

Code: Select all

for each doc in [wiki] ;; if not doc.lang.your ;; then translate(doc, lang.your) ;;

I think that we should stick to just do the rewrite terminology sprint. There are lots of missing parts in the wiki so those two convert types should be fixed in a regular wiki update session.

Regarding to Convert wiki page length, yes, it can be split into each convert type, but it is, itself, a huge task.

Convert page
Oupŝ, i reach some wiki's limit ,,,,
'''Warning:''' This page contains too many expensive parser function calls.
It should have less than 100 calls, there are now 256 calls.

....adding more and more literal's because i like them,
i'ts stronger than me,
i put them everywhere ....
when i have found the template and syntax page,
it was another life for me....i hope you understand ;-)

Yes, it looks like "Convert" page should be split into many pages...

But we can't use subpages - in the form of "Convert/Add", "Convert/Tan", etc. Because subpages are reserved for the languages (i.e. we have Convert/fr, Convert/es, etc).

So, maybe the good solution will be to add a separate namespace for the convert types. So the page names will look like: "Convert:Add", "Convert:Tan", etc. The same way like we have "Doc:Getting Started" and other tutorial pages separated.

Of course it's better to do that after the terminology sprint will be finished. Meanwhile I'm fixing the math formulas rendering...

This goes to G., I guess:

we need to rename the standard (generated) names for the layers as well, they still read "New BLine...." with the developer snapshot I downloaded lately.

BTW:
I think those terms are not part of the translation files as well, right? Can we change that as well?

Cheers, Oho.

Possibly you need to remove/rename the settings file from your computer because it holds the previous default name of the new layers ("NewBLine") for the Spline Tool. Once done it should use the new string "NewSpline". And yes it wasn't translatable.

Fixed that missing translatable string and the rest of BLines around.
