reg Gurmukhi transliteration ਸੋਧੋ

I have used your IMM a bit. By and large it is ok. But i normally use Gurmukhi punjabi Inscript with a unicode based keyboard and find it always more convinient. With your transliterator i found follwing limitation: ਜ਼ ਫ਼ etc not possible to enter. you have suggested" j'a" or" ph'a" characters for that resp. But this is not working . I have tried that. Overall remaining characters tried by me are all ok.--Guglani (talk) ੧੧:੧੪, ੧ ਮਈ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

Hi Amir E. Aharoni,

Thanks for your information . I did not know about character ` i.e. back-tick .Now once you explained ਜ਼ ,ਫ਼ could be easily formed. There is no need to change "`" back-tick with" ' " apostrophe.--Guglani (talk) ੧੬:੨੯, ੩ ਮਈ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

Hi! Thanks for the info about testing Gurmukhi. I am not sure how useful my experiences will be, since I don't know Punjabi. Should I try it anyway? Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) ੦੩:੧੦, ੯ ਅਪਰੈਲ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

proposition for being administrator on pa.wikipedia ਸੋਧੋ

Hi! Thanks for your offer . I feel pa.wikipedia needs contributors as well, alas there are not many! .At present, i am able to find time to be a contributor. I am afraid being adminstrator may not lose one active contributor from pa. wikipedia.So i feel at this moment my choice is to remain being an active contributor. If ever i find more time i shall choose being an adminstrator.May i know what is minimum knowledge required to become an administartor and who will appoint one as an adminstrator?--Guglani (talk) ੦੫:੧੯, ੪ ਜੂਨ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

Being an administrator doesn't mean that you'll stop being a contributor. It gives you more tools for being a contributor.
You can see a full list of permissions on this page: Special:ListGroupRights, but mostly you get the technical permissions to do the following things:
  • Delete and undelete pages.
  • Block and unblock vandals.
  • Protect pages, which are frequently vandalized and unprotect them.
  • Edit various protected pages.
Right now, the most important part is the last one. There are currently several technical pages, such as MediaWiki:Common.css, that need some fixes. If you don't understand what that page is, don't worry - I'll give you all the guidance you need. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) ੦੫:੩੮, ੪ ਜੂਨ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

I agree to become administrator at pa.wikipedia.org--Guglani (talk) ੦੭:੪੭, ੫ ਜੂਨ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

Bug in punjabi wikipedia ਸੋਧੋ

Dear Amire80, Nmisra wrote (talk) ੦੭:੫੩, ੨੭ ਅਪਰੈਲ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC) Whenever the number 9 (੯ ) is typed in Gurumukhi script, the following Gurumukhi characters are merged with it. Fro example, 99 written in Gurumukhi appears joined on some versions of Firefox. Any idea if this is a bug or how it can be corrected? I also noticed this problem e.g. see ੯ਦਸਤਾਵੇਜ਼ will you please analyze and tell a solution.--Guglani (talk) ੦੬:੧੧, ੨੫ ਜੁਲਾਈ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

I don't think that I understand. Is this OK - "੯੯"?
And what do you mean by "some versions of Firefox"?
Can you send a screenshot of the wrong display? --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) ੦੬:੧੬, ੨੫ ਜੁਲਾਈ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

Your name in Punjabi ਸੋਧੋ

I've seen you writing your name in Punjabi but if you write it using a software then I'm sure there 'll be some mistake. Can you make me understand the pronunciation of your name using {{respell}} from english wiki or something else? So that I can get you the correct name. Tari Buttar

ah-MEER ah-ha-RO-ni. It's quite simple, really. --ਅਮੀਰ ਏਲਿਸ਼ਾ ਅਹਰੋਨਿ / Amir E. Aharoni (talk) ੧੦:੫੩, ੧ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
mmmmm, I think this matter should be discussed on english wiki. Please check there in a short while. Tari Buttar ੧੧:੫੪, ੧ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

Need your help ਸੋਧੋ

Hello, Amir! I've decided to create some speedy deletion templates on Punjabi wiki. 'll you please help me by creating ਨਮੂਨਾ:Db-meta on this (Punjabi) wiki because I'm unable to create and even can't copy paste from english wiki. As it is the first step to create other speedy templates in a better way, it is needed. Don't worry I'll translate it later. At now, if you don't know more please copy its source from english wiki and create by pasting here. Tari Buttar ੦੭:੪੮, ੩ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

Hmm, it's very complicated and depends on a lot of other templates that only exist in the English Wikipedia, each of which would have to be ported here, too.
The Punjabi Wikipedia doesn't really need a lot of deletion templates now, because there aren't so many deletions here anyway. Furthermore, the Wikipedia template language is going to change soon. It will become much easier to translate and use in different projects, so investing in copying the complicated English templates now is not a very good investment of time. Now is a good time to concentrate on writing articles in Punjabi and translating the interface in translatewiki. --ਅਮੀਰ ਏਲਿਸ਼ਾ ਅਹਰੋਨਿ / Amir E. Aharoni (talk) ੧੪:੪੧, ੫ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
hmmmm, okay dear. But this wiki needs more deletion template and current deletion templates are also to be improved. People are not familiar with this wiki and creating articles completely against the neutral point of view and the titles also. One can feel that he/she is reading a newspaper article not an encyclopedic. And many articles I deleted containing entirely "ਪ੍ਰਸਿੱਧ ਵਿਗਿਆਨੀ" (translated as "famous sciencetist"). On english wiki it 'll may not remain for more than 5 minutes but here they were about 2 years older. I know this wiki is of many time lesser used than the english wiki at present. And all the articles have almost no source or references. English wiki 'll never bear it. There many article on Punjabi wiki containing entirely "... ਦਾ ਇੱਕ ਪ੍ਰਾਂਤ" (translated as "A state of ....") and "... ਦੀ ਰਾਜਧਾਨੀ" (translated as "Capital of ...") where "..." replaced with the name of the country or state. What you think to be done with these articles which you can check here. Tari Buttar ੧੫:੨੭, ੫ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
There are several different opinions about short articles in small wikis. Some people say that they should be deleted, and other people say that it's OK. There are at least two positive things about these articles: First, you can add them to categories, for example "Cities in Kazakhstan" or "Capitals of countries". Second, you can link these articles to other languages, for example to link the article about Moscow here to the article about Moscow in English. This is a good way to promote your Wikipedia.
If you are still in doubt, I can suggest several things:

Requesting right ਸੋਧੋ

Hello, thanks for everything. This time I want your help on having an Importer right as I found much on Punjabi wiki that are just definitions and to be transwiki to pa.wiktinary. But being only an admin I can't do so. Please make me an 'Importer'. Tari Buttar ੦੫:੨੪, ੫ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

I know little about importing myself, but I asked somebody experienced to help you. --ਅਮੀਰ ਏਲਿਸ਼ਾ ਅਹਰੋਨਿ / Amir E. Aharoni (talk) ੦੫:੩੦, ੫ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
Thanks for the quicker reply. Please do hurry, I'm waiting. Thanks again. Tari Buttar ੦੫:੩੮, ੫ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
Don't wait... You have a lot of good work to do here and in translatewiki :) --ਅਮੀਰ ਏਲਿਸ਼ਾ ਅਹਰੋਨਿ / Amir E. Aharoni (talk) ੦੫:੪੫, ੫ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
oh yeah, :-) . I'm doing my best. Have you seen? Tari Buttar ੦੭:੧੮, ੫ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
Yes! You are doing very well there. Thank you very much for this.
I left a couple of important comments on your talk page there. Read them, please. --ਅਮੀਰ ਏਲਿਸ਼ਾ ਅਹਰੋਨਿ / Amir E. Aharoni (talk) ੦੭:੨੨, ੫ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

Hello and thanks for everything you did for me. I wanna know, was that you who made me an admin on Punjabi wiki? --Tari Buttar ੧੫:੦੧, ੧੫ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

I noticed that you once asked Gman124 to become an administrator. Gman124 is not active anymore, so he didn't reply to you. After some time I understood that the Punjabi Wikipedia really needs an active administrator, so I proposed you and three other people to be administrators on Meta, which is the the central discussion site for all the Wikipedias. --ਅਮੀਰ ਏਲਿਸ਼ਾ ਅਹਰੋਨਿ / Amir E. Aharoni (talk) ੧੫:੦੬, ੧੫ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
so thanks a lot and now I need more rights on pa.wiktionary do something for that too. And yes, I've qualified for the rally. What to do now and when to do? Should I wait for the rally to be over? Tari Buttar ੧੭:੫੩, ੧੫ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
You're welcome.
What rights do you need for Wiktionary?
Congratulations about the rally! You should continue translating, of course - Punjabi Wikiepedia needs many more translations. --ਅਮੀਰ ਏਲਿਸ਼ਾ ਅਹਰੋਨਿ / Amir E. Aharoni (talk) ੧੮:੦੭, ੧੫ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
first of all I want the importer's right to move from here to pa.wiktionary, secondly, I don't think the wiktionary has any admin so I wanna be an admin there or steward if possible. And with this I want the non-active admins of pa.wiki to be non-admins. (plz respond 4 everything)
--Tari Buttar ੦੦:੪੮, ੧੬ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
All these requests must be eventually made on the page meta:Steward requests/Permissions.
Create a discussion about administrator and importer rights for yourself at the Community portal of Punjabi Wiktionary. If nobody objects for seven days, request it at meta:Steward requests/Permissions. Request admin rights in the "Administrator access" section and Importer rights in the "Miscellaneous requests" section.
To remove inactive users' rights, this must be discussed first by your community. I edited the page ਵਿਕਿਪੀਡਿਆ:ਪ੍ਰਸ਼ਾਸਕ, so it should be clearer how to do it. Please tell me if it's still not clear. --ਅਮੀਰ ਏਲਿਸ਼ਾ ਅਹਰੋਨਿ / Amir E. Aharoni (talk) ੦੪:੪੨, ੧੬ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
thanks for your efforts. I thinks I've taken the steward right wrong, I thought that the right is to have full access to a particular wiki, but I read your recent edit on the community portal that steward is to have full access of all lang. Wikis, No, I don't want to be a steward anymore. All I want, is the full access of Punjabi wiki nothing else (nothing needed for other wikis). I want to improve every phase of the Punjabi wiki (pa.wiktionary etc.) what kind of right I need for that? Tari Buttar ੦੬:੪੪, ੧੬ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
Punjabi Wikipedia and Punjabi Wiktionary are written in the same language and they use the same software, but they are separate projects. This means that the user rights on them are managed separately. You already have administrator rights on the Punjabi Wikipedia. If you want to be an administrator on the Punjabi Wiktionary, you have to request this particular thing at meta:Steward requests/Permissions, but first you have to bring this up on the community portal of the Punjabi Wiktionary. --ਅਮੀਰ ਏਲਿਸ਼ਾ ਅਹਰੋਨਿ / Amir E. Aharoni (talk) ੦੬:੫੯, ੧੬ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

Tari, don't worry :)
Siebrand, the administrator of translatewiki.net, noticed your contribution and added you to the list.
Most importantly, thank you again for making the translations! --ਅਮੀਰ ਏਲਿਸ਼ਾ ਅਹਰੋਨਿ / Amir E. Aharoni (talk) ੧੬:੩੭, ੧੮ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
yeah, I checked thanks to Seibrand. Thanks for your efforts. Okay, tell me one thing, the qualified users 'll be given 1000 Euro each or they all 'll share in the total amount of 1000 Euro? What's the scheme? Tari Buttar ੦੦:੪੭, ੧੯ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
Share. As the rally page says: "Among all users contributing 500 or more new translations to Wikimedia mobile applications, Offline applications, Pywikipediabot, Toolserver tools, MediaWiki core and MediaWiki extensions, we will divide 1,000 Euro". --ਅਮੀਰ ਏਲਿਸ਼ਾ ਅਹਰੋਨਿ / Amir E. Aharoni (talk) ੧੧:੧੧, ੧੯ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
Yes, I also read that. It seems not 1000 Euro each, all will share the total amount of 1000 Euros. Please you also keep an eye on the rally page and tell me what they said next in case of the cut. Tari Buttar ੧੧:੩੪, ੧੯ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
Within a few days Siebrand will send you an email with instructions about getting your prize. --ਅਮੀਰ ਏਲਿਸ਼ਾ ਅਹਰੋਨਿ / Amir E. Aharoni (talk) ੧੧:੫੫, ੧੯ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
Oh, that's better. But I've disabled the email option here on Punjabi wiki! Is it discabled on translatewiki too? Or it doesn't matter he can yet email, hmmm? Tari Buttar ੧੨:੨੨, ੧੯ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
The account in translatewiki.net is separate. You didn't disable the option there and users can email you through your user page.
As an administrator, you should enable the email option in Punjabi Wikipedia, too. --ਅਮੀਰ ਏਲਿਸ਼ਾ ਅਹਰੋਨਿ / Amir E. Aharoni (talk) ੧੨:੨੫, ੧੯ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
