  • Hi, I'm an admin of the biggest wiki in Catalan language. I found yours out of curiosity and I thought I had to pass by to give you my support on this.

    • Thank you. I'm currently without a laptop so it's very difficult to keep rolling out the articles. I'll come back for good one day! Congrats on your Catalan Wiki!

  • Can you tell me two phrases in Welsch?

    1. Auto-refresh/Automatic actualisation
    2. May the Force be with you

    Thanks

    • Hmm...

      1. Obviously, 'auto' stands for 'automatic' but as far as I'm aware, we can't make it smaller in Welsh. Thus, I would say the best translation is "Adnewyddu awtomatig". Adnewyddu is literally to "re-new" something. The best thing about that word is that it's used in a variety of contexts: health, technology...

      2. There are some really shocking attempts online. Most of them just use Google Translate. The best I could think of is this: "Byddai'r Grym gyda chi". We've simply turned a "have phrase" into the conditional. "Mae'r Grym gyda chi" would be "the Force is with you", but by changing it to 'byddai', you're saying "the Force may be with you" (or "you may have the Force").

      2b. Alternatively, you could use "bydded y grym gyda chi". The difference is, it's the command form. You're saying "Have the Force" or "Have the Force with you". I'm not sure how you'd wish to approach it hehe. The informal version of bydded is 'boed'.

      Hope that's helped.

  • Heya,

    I figured out the main page, just note than the Right Column needs to be first, Left Column after. Not sure why this is, but it so happens to be. Hope I helped! --Dakota (TalkEdits)Unofficial Wikia support

    • Gaah, it's always something silly like that!

      Thanks a lot btw! And thanks for not giving up hehe! Let me know if I can return the favour!

      Hwyl fawr,

      Matt

    • It isn't normal for the right column to have to come first. That was certainly an oddity. I originally started on a container substitution which would have worked, though more sophisticated. Luckily, the main page formatting worked partially as it was supposed to.

    • Well I have used this column thing on two other Wikis and it worked perfectly. Maybe it's something in the CSS... since I know nothing about what that even is, and since an admin came from the English Wiki and did it for me, I just nod and go along with it. Maybe it was some sort of communication error between wikitext and that.

      Or I'm talking randomese hehe.

    • Hi there,

      At the moment, I'm tied up with this Wiki, so I can't help you. It really isn't a good idea to depend on me to add content. It's a much better idea to get onto Facebook and Twitter and advertise the Wiki, looking for contributors. There will be somebody somewhere who'll be interested in taking the lead.

      May I ask- why did you set up the Wiki in the first place if you didn't speak Welsh? I'm genuinely interested. :)

    • I saw this wiki in the past, when there was only one article. Few months later the wiki was closed and I decided: If someone have created that wiki and written 1 article, there must be someone on the wikia who would like to help it. You were the only one that I found.

    • If you search hard enough, you'll find someone to take over. You could:

      1. Ask at the English language Star Wars Wiki for Welsh speakers. Open up a forum. You never know.

      2. Go to Facebook and advertise in some Star Wars groups. You could even go to Star Wars pages and ask them to advertise for you. You could also tweet it using the hashtag #Cymraeg (that means 'Welsh').

      3. Even better, post it here  and here. Make sure you make it clear that you want someone with a clear understanding of Welsh.

      Let me know how you get on.

  • As you've probably noticed, much of what has ailed Tardis stylistically has finally been fixed! This means that work can now proceed on your site, since you've said you wanted an exact copy. I'm attending a series of meetings this week, so it may not be possible to start until next week — just in time for the new series.

    I know it's been a while since your initial request, so I thank you for your patience with this. Oddly I don't typically get paid for working on Doctor Who stuff, so that work often gets delayed. Nevertheless, this site is going to look great very soon indeed!

    • Hi there!

      Thanks for your continued support of the Welsh Wiki! The wordmark is amazing and looks so awesome. I also think you're right about the English flag too. I doubt we'll get many Scots checking us out haha. Also, thanks for fixing the Polish flag. I'm a bit of a perfectionist so that gap always used to throw me hehe.

      This is all perfect. I respect how long your to-do list must be and I truly do appreciate how you've managed to fit us in. All I'll bug you for now is some homepage help. When I spoke about your homepage (sans the Davison video at the top), I'm hoping you got what I meant. You know, with the little images, like I think the Silent connected to monsters and the 'DOCTOR WHO' intro maybe went to the series of Doctor Who. The current homepage here is just awful. If you've ever got another [insert amount of minutes] to help us out, that'd be awesome. And I'd never annoy you ever again haha.

      For now, though, I'm highly grateful and appreciatitive of how much time you've given to us. You've made us look very professional. If there's any way to provide feedback to Wikia about your help, then I'll happily big you up!

      Have a nice evening,

      Matthew

    • Hi there,

      I have a little question for you. How can I change the hyperlink colour from blue to "new TARDIS blue" without messing up the whole layout? I daren't mess about in case I ruin the hard work you put into this. :P

      Thank you!

  • Hi Thefartydoctor - just a short note, that I sent you a short reply about your request around Welsh translation a few minutes ago by mail :-)
