Incorrect spelling of numbers for the April 27th & April 15th entries[edit]

The word twelveth is an archaic form of twelfth. The phrase eleventh-millionth plus one should be phrased as eleven-millionth-plus one.

Problem with the French term "Film live"[edit]

The French Wikipedia article Film live must be removed from the Wikidata Q517386 item, and replaced with the article Prise de vue réelle.

This is because, in French, prise de vue réelle is the term for the traditional technique of shooting films, that is, "live action" in English. In French, film live is just a modern term referring to those films (and only films) that are shot in live action. As a conclusion: prise de vue réelle is the only French equivalent of the English "live action", the Spanish imagen real and so on.

How can this be done ? I was trying to delete "Film live" from the Q517386 item, but I only obtain a "forbidden" message...

This can be done by replacing that sitelink with the new title. ✓ Done for you. Matěj Suchánek (talk) 14:01, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
Thank you! Kintaro (talk) 00:12, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Item count[edit]

The number of data items on the main page is wrong. This was already discussed multiple times but couldn't resolved so far. Most probably it's because the Wikimedia software ignores stub articles when counting content pages. On Template:Numberofarticles the number of items gets updated daily. I propose to use this template instead of {{NUMBEROFARTICLES:R}}. --Pasleim (talk) 16:59, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

@Pasleim: Symbol support vote.svg Support. However, I think that {{Numberofarticles}} should be updated more frequently in that case (for example, every 6 hours). --abián 17:14, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
If {{Numberofarticles}} just counts every non-redirect in the main namespace, why not change the definition of an article on this wiki to that (by setting $wgArticleCountMethod to 'any')? - dcljr (talk) 01:25, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
Once known, that seems the obvious solution. :-) Thanks, dcljr. --abián 08:55, 4 September 2016 (UTC)


What about adding a link to the Wikidata tag on StackOverflow in the "Contact" box? More discussions can be found there than on Quora. cc @Bene*:. -- Zorglub27 (talk) 11:07, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

@Zorglub27: Personally I don't see the point of spreading discussions away from our own platforms to external ones, but that's my POV. As long as we do have links to external platforms, I'd prefer such where e.g. User:Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) and User:Lea Lacroix (WMDE) are active. I don't know if this is true for StackOverflow (or for some of the other platforms we already do link). --YMS (talk) 07:50, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
We're monitoring all the currently linked ones. Every now and then I go look at Stackoverflow when it shows up in Twitter searches and so on but not more. --Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) (talk) 08:08, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Nostalgia wiki[edit]

Box other projects not insert nostalgia wikipedia. --Walter Klosse (talk) 14:29, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

It only accepts some other Wikimedia projects. The Nostalgia Wikipedia is not supported. Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 17:06, 2 October 2016 (UTC)
