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'.
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(Talk•Edits)Unofficial Wikia support
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.
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.
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!
You now have the styling of tardis.wikia.com. Granted it's not come in much before the premiere of the show, but it's here. :)
Things that are still obvious eyesores include:
Infobox styling at Tardis is in transition over the next several months as we move to the new, portable design. Additionally, Tardis infoboxes do things that yours can't, because we have SMW installed. You don't, and unfortunately Wikia do not currently allow its installation on wikis that don't already have it.
Accordingly, the infobox design can't be just copy and pasted here. It'll have to be bespoke.
I highly suggest that you read all the material in the portable infobox help file linked above, and then take a stab at converting your own boxes locally. If it proves too difficult, you could then ask me for specific help in making the transition. However, since you've been around Wikia for ages, I tend to think you could do at least the basic building of the infobox, and then have me just give you a bit of a hand with the CSS for final styling. Most people have reported that the new "mini-language" for infoboxes is pretty easy to figure out.
(For styling purposes, you should know that the blue now being used on this site is #012C47, or "new Tardis blue". Most apparently white interiors, such as in the top navigation, are in fact #ececec, an eggshell-like shade of white.)
We've never really talked about wordmarks before, but obviously we're going to need to do something graphical to make it fit within the top navigation better. Do you want it to look more or less like the Tardis one, but with the words, "Doctor Who Cymraeg Wiki"? Or did you want to try to translate "Tardis Data Core" into Welsh? It should be pretty easy to fix things up however you want — just lemme know :)
Because you've enabled article comments rather than article talk pages, you'll encounter some styling problems. This is because we don't use article comments at Tardis, and therefore haven't styled everything there. I strongly suggest that you switch off article comments, as the chances are that I won't be able to offer special styling for article comments. By that, I merely mean that I know I simply won't remember that I need to make special exceptions in my code for features not present on Tardis.
English flag has been added. I'm assuming most Welsh speakers will likely see the actual English flag as the best representative of the English language, as opposed to the flags of the UK or US. Please lemme know if you think differently.
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!
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
