Welcome to Wikimedia Incubator!

At the right there are some important links, and here are some tips and info:

  • If you haven't created a user page yet, please create one with for example Babel templates on it.
  • You can select your interface language in your preferences.
  • If you make articles, templates or categories, don't forget to add a prefix!
  • If your knowledge of English is good, you can help with translating pages to other languages you know, so more people can understand them!
  • If you want to translate the interface, please go to Translatewiki.net and follow their instructions.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask them on Incubator:Community Portal.

"it’s written in Wp/enm:"This test has a valid language code, but note that it is an extinct, historical or ancient language so it will be hard to get a Wikimedia project.""?Edit

Hello, in I:RFD, you said so. I wonder if your programming level is good or not, this sentence isn't really written in that test project, but within Template:Test wiki/core. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 00:50, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

I know programming and of course it’s written in a template since if you enter other test wikis in ancient languages you see the same template, but I think you get what I meant to say. If you enter any of those test wikis, you see text that says that it will be hard to get a wikimedia project, hard but not impossible. -Gifnk dlm 2020 (talk) 08:42, 30 January 2021 (UTC)


Hi. I see that you haven't added categories to any of your pages. Make sure to add them when you make new pages. Thanks! --CanadianToast (talk) 19:11, 7 February 2021 (UTC)


Hello, I saw your thanks; would you like me do add the sortkeys to all Middle English Wikipedia articles? Also, do you think it is better to use DEFAULTSORT or by-category sortkeys? 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 16:18, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

@1234qwer1234qwer4, I would greatly appreciate it if you added sort keys to all the articles! About the sorting, I always prefer typing the sort keys together with the category. The default sort template unfortunately doesn’t exist in Middle English Wikipedia but you can ask an admin to import it. Currently we only have 4 categories but when we have more it will be very useful. -Gifnk dlm 2020 (talk) 17:24, 8 March 2021 (UTC)
Okay, I'll try to add it everywhere. DEFAULTSORT is not a template by the way, it is a magic word and therefore available everywhere. 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 17:44, 8 March 2021 (UTC)
@1234qwer1234qwer4, great! That way it will also be easier to change it in case the page get moved. -Gifnk dlm 2020 (talk) 18:35, 8 March 2021 (UTC)
So, I've done the articles that are in topic categories. The ones in Category:Wp/enm sorted under "W", except for those that start with W, are not categorised in any other way. While I am at it, I think it would make sense to expand the category system a bit. Is Category:Wp/enm/Peeple correct Middle English? 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 19:18, 8 March 2021 (UTC)
@1234qwer1234qwer4, wow I’m impressed! I have checked in this Middle English dictionary and peeple is correct Middle English. It’s important to remember that Middle English didn’t have a universal spelling - it had many dialects and many correct ways to spell. It’s impossible to memorize all of them, so I recommend checking in this dictionary and in wikitionary when uncertain. In the Middle English dictionary that I linked you can see quotations to make sure your grammar is correct and also to check which spelling you want to use. The form pepul is also correct apparently. -Gifnk dlm 2020 (talk) 13:57, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
I've created the category (as well as some others). For people, I followed the convention to use "Family name, first name" as the DEFAULTSORT. To the remaining articles, I think just adding the DEFAULTSORT is enough for now. 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 15:38, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
@1234qwer1234qwer4, thank you very much! -Gifnk dlm 2020 (talk) 15:45, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
  Done, I think. 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 15:54, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
