This page is for collecting information about languages currently spoken by Moderators. This could help with various matters, for example when you are editing an entry in a language you don't know well and wish to have advice from someone who knows the language better.

===How to Add Yourself===
 
 
Please add your native language(s) and any others that you feel proficient in or knowledgeable about.
 
 
'''This is how it works:''' Add the languages you know ''to your [[User Page|UserPage]]'' like this <code><nowiki>["ModeratorLanguage/Klingon/Native"]</nowiki></code>. This way people will be able to find you using the [[Back Link|BackLink]]<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>s to the language-pages above. These language-pages all have exactly three [[Sub Page|SubPage]]<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>s: /Native, /Fluent, and /Some.
 
 
If you speak a language that is not listed here, please add ''and create'' the appropirate language-page using the [[Moderator Language Template|ModeratorLanguageTemplate]].

===Discussion that lead to the new linking scheme===
 
 
Um, this is a wiki and sorted lists do not make any sense here, really. Better use wiki featues instead: You could make a [[Sub Page|SubPage]] for each language (maybe like this [[Moderator Language/Native Klingon|/NativeKlingon]] and [[Moderator Language/Secondary Klingon|/SecondaryKlingon]] or leave the Native/Secondary part out). Then each Editor can add their language to their category person page here on the wiki. (e.g. [[Moderator Language/Native Klingon|ModeratorLanguage/NativeKlingon]]). Then you can just get a list of all people natively speaking Klingon via [[Back Link|BackLink]]<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>s. [[Moin Moin|MoinMoin]] offers the possibility to list these pages on this page with macros like <code><nowiki>[[FullSearch(ModeratorLanguage/NativeKlingon)]]</nowiki></code>. See [[MoinMoin:HelpOnMacros|HelpOnMacros]] and [[MoinMoin:HelpOnEditing/SubPages|HelpOnEditing/SubPages]] for details. --[[User:DonRedman|DonRedman]]
 
 
I like this idea more, although I think I would prefer 'native', 'fluent' and 'some' to 'native' and 'secondary'. Secondary doesn't really give us any idea of just how much of the language someone speaks, Rob's English is obviously much better than, say, [[Lu Kz|LuKz]]' because he actually lives in an English speaking country. Is there a way of doing it so that you could get a list of all English speakers, and then if you wanted, a list of all native English speakers? --[[User:Nikki|Nikki]]
 
 
Well, something like this: One [[Sub Page|SubPage]] for each language like [[Moderator Language/Klingon|ModeratorLanguage/Klingon]] and a sub-[[Sub Page|SubPage]] for the nativeness (sp?) like [[Moderator Language/Klingon/Native|ModeratorLanguage/Klingon/Native]], [[Moderator Language/Klingon/Fluent|ModeratorLanguage/Klingon/Fluent]], and [[Moderator Language/Klingon/Some|ModeratorLanguage/Klingon/Some]]. Unfortunately these are not [[Wiki Word|WikiWord]]<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>s so you have to write <code><nowiki>["ModeratorLanguage/Klingon/Native"]</nowiki></code> on your user page. If I got Moin right, then you could have [[Back Link|BackLink]]<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>s to ModeratorLanguage/Klingon and all its [[Sub Page|SubPage]]<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>s. That is what you want, isn't it? --[[User:DonRedman|DonRedman]]
