Links to add

Adding some. Emijrp (talk) 09:09, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
Please add a linefeed above. Conny (talk) 18:15, 11 November 2012 (UTC).
  • Please change [[:Category:Wikidata:Deletion|{{#expr:{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Wikidata:Deletion}}}}]] into [[:Category:Wikidata:Deletion|+{{#expr:{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Wikidata:Deletion}}}} in category]]. Otherwise people think the number refers to the Requests for deletions page. --Morten Haan (talk) 01:25, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Please add a link to the Log, because it isn't in the sidebar. IW 20:38, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
    • Is this really necessary? If it is, I don't think this is the right place for it.--Jasper Deng (talk) 20:58, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
In dewiki we have such a link in the box. But maybe the sidebar is a better place for it. IW 19:36, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Please do add an option (say "New editors' contribs" as in wp) for watching new changes by new editors:[1]···Vanischenu「mc|Talk」 23:24, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
    • Are you suggesting that this be removed? It is currently not on there. If you are suggesting adding it, I'd look for others' opinions first though any other admin should feel free to feel differently.--Jasper Deng (talk) 02:25, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
      • I apologize for missing this discussion (I don't know what happened, somehow I forgot about this). I was suggesting to add a link to view newbie's contributions: Special:Contributions/newbies. You can also consider showing the number of flooders too, as in Simplewiki. So the requested changes to /en would be (marked in yellow):
        '''Utilities''': [[Special:NewPages|New pages]] • <span class=plainlinks>[// IP contribs]</span> • [[Special:Contributions/newbies|New users' contribs]] • [[Special:Abuselog|Abuse filter log]] • [[Special:ListUsers/flood|Flood flag]] ([[Special:ListUsers/flood|{{NUMBERINGROUP:flood}}]]) • [[Wikidata:Database reports|Database reports]] • (''[[MediaWiki talk:Recentchangestext|Discuss this notice]]'')</div>
        and the output would be:
        Utilities: New pagesIP contribsNew users' contribsAbuse filter logFlood flag (5) • Database reports • (Discuss this notice)
        Thanks.Vanischenu「mc|Talk」 18:12, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Thank youVanischenu「mc|Talk」 19:18, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

RTL wikisEdit

please wrap this text in <div dir="ltr" class="mw-content-ltr"></div> because in RTL wikis it goes to right and it is difficult for reading. thanksReza1615 (talk) 22:53, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

  Done. --Yair rand (talk) 22:43, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

New linkEdit

Should we add a link to the project chat or help desk or whatever the help forum is called on Wikidata (assuming there is one yet)?King jakob c 2 (talk) 16:31, 14 March 2013 (UTC)


I added Wikidata:Administrators' noticeboard‎ and wikidata:Bureaucrats' noticeboard‎. If you not support my edit, then feel free to revert--DangSunM (talk) 20:52, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

please also add Wikidata:Bot requests Yamaha5 (talk) 16:48, 15 April 2013 (UTC)


Hello, can we use LangSwitch in this Template? Different languages would be really nice. --Pyfisch (talk) 14:45, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure, We can made subpages for another language. like MediaWiki:Recentchangestext/fr. Regards.--DangSunM (talk) 16:38, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
I tried it with MediaWiki:Recentchangestext/fi, but for some reason it does not work. It works on Commons, but I don't know why not here. --Stryn (talk) 17:11, 11 May 2013 (UTC)
French Version does not work. --Pyfisch (talk) 18:34, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

  Done I just made template instead for translation. Template:Recentchanges/text --DangSunM (talk) 20:08, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

Protected edit requests‎Edit

For more flexible translation please change

{{#expr:{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Wikidata protected edit requests}}}} [[:Category:Wikidata protected edit requests|<translate><!--T:8--> Protected edit requests</translate>]]


<translate>{{#expr:{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Wikidata protected edit requests}}}} [[:Category:Wikidata protected edit requests|Protected edit requests]]</translate><!--T:8-->

Chrumps (talk) 00:28, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Or better:

<translate><tvar|num>{{#expr:{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Wikidata protected edit requests}}}}</> [[<tvar|cat>:Category:Wikidata protected edit requests</>|Protected edit requests]]</translate><!--T:8-->

--β16 - (talk) 09:45, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

<translate><!--T:8--><tvar|num>{{#expr:{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Wikidata protected edit requests}}}}</> [[<tvar|cat>:Category:Wikidata protected edit requests</>|Protected edit requests]]</translate>

Should fix it. --β16 - (talk) 13:08, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

  Done --Chrumps (talk) 23:20, 21 July 2013 (UTC)

Fixing incorrect changeEdit

{{Edit request}} Please revert this incorrect markup change! Only "Protected edit requests" phrase should be translated, but not another wiki-code. Section #23 has been added for nothing.

Please try change

{{#expr:{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Wikidata protected edit requests}}}} [[:Category:Wikidata protected edit requests|Protected edit requests]]</translate><!--T:8-->


<tvar|num>{{#expr:{{PAGESINCATEGORY:Wikidata protected edit requests}}}}</> [[<tvar|cat>:Category:Wikidata protected edit requests</>|Protected edit requests]]</translate>

(as proposed above).

--Kaganer (talk) 21:28, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

I tried, but it did not work properly. Chrumps (talk) 13:45, 1 August 2013 (UTC)
NP, this affected old (undeleted) value of Translations:Template:Recentchanges/text/8/ru etc. Simple after auto-update translations to be update string #8 manually for all versions. I will do it. Please make this change again.--Kaganer (talk) 18:50, 1 August 2013 (UTC)
분당선M (talkcontribslogs) made this change. Did that fix the issue? The Anonymouse (talk) 04:25, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
No. This change was simple removed empty section #8. Please make change as proposed above. Finally, new updated value of this string should be "$num [[$cat|<old value>]]". --Kaganer (talk) 20:25, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
See this [2] change for why it changes T8 to T23. it already mark as t23 for this edit. So <!--T:8--> is waste word.--DangSunM (talk) 06:35, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
Since 분당선M changed the template again, I'm going to remove the request template. Feel free to reopen if necessary. The Anonymouse (talk) 05:56, 13 August 2013 (UTC)


{{Editprotected}} In the utilities line at Template:Recentchanges/text, please insert

• [[Wikidata:Database reports/without claims by site/<translate>en</translate>wiki|<translate>no claims</translate>]]

It's a daily update report of items lacking statements for some wikis.
--- Jura 19:30, 11 June 2017 (UTC)

@Jura1: Why do you think it belongs there? Matěj Suchánek (talk) 18:58, 9 August 2017 (UTC)
@Matěj Suchánek:: It's a fairly general list of recent changes, event if only updated daily. BTW, would you kindly look into some of my other edit requests as well?
--- Jura 09:06, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
Perhaps we could use #ifexist: instead of letting users translate "en", which they may not know what it's supposed to be.
Where will I find them? Matěj Suchánek (talk) 18:09, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
Good point. They are on Wikidata:Database reports/without claims by site (column Reports if it has "items (recent)"). (using ifexists ;) there)
{{#ifexist:Wikidata:Database reports/without claims by site/{{int:lang}}wiki|[[Wikidata:Database reports/without claims by site/{{int:lang}}wiki|<translate>no statements</translate>]]|}}
might work.
--- Jura 18:16, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
  Done Please point me to the other requests you have. Matěj Suchánek (talk) 17:16, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Add pltools reChEdit

{{Edit request}} From the latest newsletter, I noticed

by @Pasleim:. I experimented with it, and it's powerfully cool. I suggest adding it to this page's list. (or possibly a link to the tool's documentation page, if there is one?) Quiddity (talk) 22:29, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

  •   Support--Kaganer (talk) 15:10, 18 October 2017 (UTC)

@ Quiddity & Kaganer:   Done - we have waited long enough. Useful tool. Romaine (talk) 00:49, 4 February 2018 (UTC)

Edit request - newbiesEdit


At Template:Recentchanges/text, please remove

• [[Special:Contributions/newbies|<translate><!--T:20--> New users' contribs</translate>]]

per phab:T220447 - the newbies functionality has been removed. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 18:49, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

  Done ‐‐1997kB (talk) 12:05, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

Edit request - floodEdit


Currently, both "Flood flag" and the number of users link to the list of users. I suggest that the first link to WD:Flooders.

Please replace

[[Special:ListUsers/flood|<translate><!--T:21--> Flood flag</translate>]]


[[Special:MyLanguage/Wikidata:Flooders|<translate><!--T:21--> Flood flag</translate>]]

Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 09:05, 11 January 2020 (UTC)

Faster to become an admin :) --DannyS712 (talk) 09:47, 8 March 2020 (UTC)
