Template translationChanjya

Dydh da! I'm currently trying to copy succession box templates from English Wikipedia. Could you have a look at Skantlyn:S-new at some point to check my translations? (I've left the English in 'no-include' boxes) If you find anything else badly translated, please correct it too! Meur ras, Gazamp (keskows) 19:25, 10 Du 2020 (UTC)

Dydh da! I will absolutely have a look, meur ras. Are you someone who knows about templates, then? It's not something I've dabbled with yet, but I'd love to get kwiki some info boxes and things! --Gwikor Frank (keskows) 21:15, 10 Du 2020 (UTC)
Not really - just some basics I picked up and a little altering for translation or to make everything work. To be honest, I'm just trying to copy templates I would normally use on enwiki to here when I find that they're missing (I've been meaning to do the succession ones for quite a while, just it's quite a big job!). If there's any templates you had in mind though, I can have a go... Gazamp (keskows) 17:47, 11 Du 2020 (UTC)

Skantlyn nowydhChanjya

Hi again! I'm planning on making some more specific stub categories with almost copy and paste templates - could you check Skantlyn:Stock-tus-europa for anything I might have got wrong before I multiply any errors? Meur ras! Gazamp (keskows) 18:52, 2 Kevardhu 2020 (UTC)

Dydh da! Checked and made a couple of small changes. Also, my gut is to use "ty" rather than "hwi", but it's absolutely a matter of preference, so I leave it up to you. --Gwikor Frank (keskows) 14:27, 3 Kevardhu 2020 (UTC)
Splann! The 'hwi' has just come from the existing template I used as a base (Skantlyn:Stock-tus I think). I'll make a few more, so if you could keep an eye on what I'm doing every now and then that'd be great (if there's anything I think I've got wrong, I'll ping you). Meur ras arta, Gazamp (keskows) 18:08, 3 Kevardhu 2020 (UTC)
I'll try to keep an eye out, though if there's something specific in future, probably best to come and get me if you can because I may lapse! Also, while I've got you, I'm really interested in the statistics at the bottom of your user page, particularly the gender and racial balances. How do you do that, it's really cool! --Gwikor Frank (keskows) 21:08, 10 Kevardhu 2020 (UTC)
Brilliant thanks! I'll copy the code for the bars below with some explainations in it so you can modify it...
Gender balance
32 34
Men Women
I'll try to do one with more than two colours too when I have a moment later... Meur ras, Gazamp (keskows) 14:03, 12 Kevardhu 2020 (UTC)
Proposal X
10 60 30
Yes No Unsure
Have tried to explain in comment brackets how to work the code but if there's anything I've missed just ping me. Gazamp (keskows) 17:43, 16 Kevardhu 2020 (UTC)

Translations from WelshChanjya

Dydh da! I've come across two pages (Peiriant torri gwair and Teneuo coedwigaeth) in Welsh rather than Cornish. As one of the only active Welsh-language editors here, if you feel like trying to translate to Cornish and merging the Welsh with the articles on cywiki that'd be great. If not, that's fine and I'll start the process of deleting them - just thought I may as well see if there's anything you can do with them. Meur ras, Gazamp (keskows) 18:33, 19 Genver 2021 (UTC)


Are you able to translate the links on the left? If so, please change Klassys to Categories for users who set the display language to English. Aqchampion (keskows) 05:40, 8 Me 2021 (UTC)

@Aqchampion: - If I knew where to look in TranslateWiki, I absolutely could! It's strange that it shows up as Klassys even in English, though. I'll have a look at TranslateWiki and see if I can work out which of the many disparate sections needs changing, but if you could have a look too that would certainly help. Thanks for letting me know! --Gwikor Frank (keskows) 13:51, 8 Me 2021 (UTC)

Edits to Dianne FeinsteinChanjya

Hi, Thanks for cleaning up Dianne Feinstein. Would you mind explaining your edits here - with things like mer and ombrofyer, are they not gendered? Meur ras, Gazamp (keskows) 16:12, 5 Gortheren 2021 (UTC)

@Gazamp: Hiya, no problem! So, feel free to revert the changes to mer and ombrofyer as it is definitely a matter of choice. My reasoning for making those edits are that the Cornish speaking community seems to be moving away from gendering professions. I don't know of many women within the community who would use "meres", were they a mayor, just as in English I don't know of many women who would want to be mayoresses. This is an area very much under discussion at the moment, there was actually a Kesva meeting last week about things like gender neutral language, professions and pronouns in Kernewek. So, yeah, especialy with mer(es) as she doesn't appear to use mayoress in English, I thought it a good idea to change as in most cases the gender of the agent is less important than their role. But it's absolutely no skin off my nose if you want to revert. Hope that helps! --Gwikor Frank (keskows) 19:34, 5 Gortheren 2021 (UTC)
No that makes a lot of sense - just good to know for future! Meur ras, Gazamp (keskows) 21:52, 5 Gortheren 2021 (UTC)


I left a message at the Tavern; great to see some subs done. Would anyone like to do audio do you think? I can help with editing. --JimKillock (keskows) 09:29, 16 Hedra 2021 (UTC)

Hiya @JimKillock, sorry it's taken a while to get back to you, it's a very busy time of year here at Cornish Wikipedia is it's our yearly editathon. Hopefully I'll have time once that's over in December to get back to you about this, audio sounds really cool and I think I know some people who'd be up for that!
