Dear Koavf,

I'm sad that in 7 years no one has welcomed you to this wiki or posted a kind word on your talk page. Happily and humbly, I am proud to be the first. :) It's a privilege to acknowledge your 1.5+ million contributions to free knowledge. And it's a privilege to work with you here on Outreach wiki. Thank you, Koavf, for everything you do for the movement, for this project, and for our Outreach community.
Very sincerely yours, Anna Koval (WMF) (talk) 21:42, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for sharing this article[edit]

Dear Koavf,

I just wanted to thank you for sharing this article on your English Wikipedia user page.

"You Don't Know It, But You're Working for Facebook. For Free." --The Washington Post

It was a really good read, and I might have missed it otherwise.

Take care, Anna Koval (WMF) (talk) 21:52, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

@AKoval (WMF): Thanks for your kind words and all that you do for the w:Wikimedia movement. Please let me know how I can help you. Koavf (talk) 23:59, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

Hello Wikimother[edit]

@Koavf: Can you help to show me how to create notification pop-ups. I want to start a something like (The Wikipedia Adventure) on All4One Wikia for our new comers/users. Thanks!

@Ras Benjih: I am simply too busy at the moment to commit myself to your project. I wish you the best though and appreciate you reaching out to me. Koavf (talk) 23:55, 6 January 2016 (UTC)

I have some anxiety not knowing the affect of my article deletion. No comments made.--Fujifil (talk) 01:35, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Marking for translation[edit]

Hi, I looked everywhere, IRC included, but no one seems to know the answer. I would like to mark Education/Ideal workshop/pl for translation, but apparently the system automagically interprets all pages marked for translation as English, regardless of the actual language they are written in. Do you know if there is a chance to mark the language the page is in? Partial translation is already available at Education/Ideal workshop, but it would be easier to mark the Polish language page as the main blueprint, and copy the English paragraphs one by one. That way I would also have a reminder what parts of the translation are still missing. Halibutt (talk) 08:13, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

@Halibutt: I think the problem is that you are trying to translate from a subpage up higher in the hierarchy. Have you checked mw:Extension:Translate? It also has help pages and an IRC chat. If that's not helpful, please let me know and I will do some more digging myself. Koavf (talk) 15:04, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I tried the documentation (though it's really lengthy and I might have missed the solution there), I asked at IRC channels of mediawiki and at #mediawiki-i18n, to no avail. Also, moving the page one notch up the hierarchy doesn't do the trick either: Education/Warsztat idealny. Any help would be appreciated. Unless of course the developers did not think of such situation, which is also entirely possible... Halibutt (talk) 23:31, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
Hmmm, it seems there is no way to solve this. Filed it as a bug (T145039). For now I'd have to simply translate the document by hand and treat the English version as if it was an original. Halibutt (talk) 23:49, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
@Halibutt: Frustrating. Let me know if anything interesting happens on that bug. Koavf (talk) 01:02, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
It seems the matter is somehow easy to fix, but we'd need additional code enabled for that, and there's no ETA as far as I can tell. Anyway, the fix consists of a way to select the default page language on a page by page basis. I'll keep you updated. Halibutt (talk) 08:58, 9 September 2016 (UTC)
