===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]]

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.

The following SubPages list all moderators who speak that language

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 UserPage like this ["ModeratorLanguage/Klingon/Native"]. This way people will be able to find you using the BackLinks to the language-pages above. These language-pages all have exactly three SubPages: /Native, /Fluent, and /Some.

If you speak a language that is not listed here, please add and create the appropirate language-page using the ModeratorLanguageTemplate.

If you are willing to provide translation help to others, please add your information to OnlineTranslator under "Other Resources" as shown, thanks

Discussion

Is it on purpose or by mistake that the actual links from moderators' pages don't lead anywhere? I'm not too familiar with all this wiki magic... //bnw

  • Something in between. If you want the links to lead to pages, then you'd have to create them. But there is no real value in these SubPages. I think it is cleanest to create them. See discussion on ModeratorLanguage/French/Native. --DonRedman
