infancy period of punjabi wikipedia[ਸੋਧੋ]

There are very less number of editors in punjabi wikipedia.They need to be encouraged to give more articles or add substance to articles. Experienced editors should have broad outlook to encourage new editors and should have patience so that articles come up.And also they should develop a template to give notice to increase article if they themselves do not have time to expand it. Article on My school is a common topic to give to school going children.Rome cannot be built in one day experienced users on punjabi are very few and in my opinion they should use restraint on deleting an article on reason for being a small article--Guglani (talk) ੧੪:੩੧, ੧੭ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)


Problem with Gurmukhi Numeral Figures[ਸੋਧੋ]

We are having a great problem while putting dates in Gurmukhi for e.g. If we want 1931 in Gurmukhi then some figures overlap each other and we end up seeing ੧੯੩੧ . For this I think we should make a rule of using only Roman Numerals or I think some problem is supposed to be solved at the software level or something. --Satdeep gill (talk) ੦੩:੪੯, ੧੮ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

please see above discussion on problem with ੯ , overlapping of numerals problem may be same and solution is change text font to saab option and then see the dispaly(please check and confirm).But at the same time , issue of using roman numerals is an overall issue ,in use of numerals in gurmukhi fonts and needs discussion at much higher platforms ,universities etc ,public even other than wikipedia.--Guglani (talk) ੧੩:੫੬, ੧੯ ਅਗਸਤ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

Wikidata is getting close to a first roll-out[ਸੋਧੋ]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.)

As some of you might already have heard Wikimedia Deutschland is working on a new Wikimedia project. It is called m:Wikidata. The goal of Wikidata is to become a central data repository for the Wikipedias, its sister projects and the world. In the future it will hold data like the number of inhabitants of a country, the date of birth of a famous person or the length of a river. These can then be used in all Wikimedia projects and outside of them.

The project is divided into three phases and "we are getting close to roll-out the first phase". The phases are:

  1. language links in the Wikipedias (making it possible to store the links between the language editions of an article just once in Wikidata instead of in each linked article)
  2. infoboxes (making it possible to store the data that is currently in infoboxes in one central place and share the data)
  3. lists (making it possible to create lists and similar things based on queries to Wikidata so they update automatically when new data is added or modified)

It'd be great if you could join us, test the demo version, provide feedback and take part in the development of Wikidata. You can find all the relevant information including an FAQ and sign-up links for our on-wiki newsletter on the Wikidata page on Meta.

For further discussions please use this talk page (if you are uncomfortable writing in English you can also write in your native language there) or point me to the place where your discussion is happening so I can answer there.

Font issues?[ਸੋਧੋ]

Hello all,

Why is it that we are using the "Lohit" and "Saab" fonts as opposed to Raavi? Maybe it's just me, but I've accessed the Punjabi Wikipedia on different operating systems (Windows XP, Vista, 7) and both fonts have unattractive display issues. Lohit displays distortion along the bar above each character, and Saab doesn't space lines out properly.

Raavi works perfectly well and has been included, by default, since Windows Vista. It even displays on XP, though there are some unresolved issues.

So, what gives?

--Ihaveacomputer (talk) ੧੩:੩੩, ੧੨ ਸਿਤੰਬਰ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

Ah, I just learned that 'reset' defaults to Raavi. Still curious as to why we're using a buggy font as the default, though!
With respect to my previous point about line spacing, it seems to be a problem with Raavi, as well. I was actually referring to the display of the header beneath the "ਪੰਜਾਬੀ ਕੀਬੋਰਡ | ਬਰਾਦਰੀ ਪਿੜ" box at the top of each page... Anybody have any ideas?
--Ihaveacomputer (talk) ੧੩:੪੦, ੧੨ ਸਿਤੰਬਰ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
I don't know about the issues at an advanced level as I mostly use my mobile. But if I, being an admin, can help fixing, please let me know exactly what? --tari Buttar (talk) ੧੧:੫੭, ੧੩ ਸਿਤੰਬਰ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
Before starting world war 3 because of one word lets have a look at how readers will experience this wiki, I believe that Wikipedia is written for its readers, and when a reader first sees the Punjabi wiki, it really puts you off and makes this Wiki look shabby and unmaintained. One of the biggest problems is this font issue which must be fixed ASAP. I would do this but I'm still new and hardly know how to edit properly, If an admin could kindly make it the deafault font it would be most appriciated. >>Zarienah (talk) ੧੭:੨੦, ੨੨ ਸਿਤੰਬਰ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
I've taken the issue up here >>Zarienah (talk) ੧੦:੫੩, ੨੪ ਸਿਤੰਬਰ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
As I've stated before, I don't know about the font issues at an advanced level but 'll be glad to fix if guided properly; what to do? --tari Buttar (talk) ੧੨:੫੫, ੨੪ ਸਿਤੰਬਰ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
follow the link https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=40473 and add a comment about the problem and vote it as a major problem that needs to be solved ASAP, because of these problems this wiki is hard to read and readers will probably just go to english or some other indic wiki to find what they are looking for because the Punjabi is too hard to interpret. Please help make this wiki look better for readers. >>Zarienah (talk) ੨੦:੩੬, ੨੪ ਸਿਤੰਬਰ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

Main Name of this wiki[ਸੋਧੋ]

word ਦਿਹਾਂਤ exists in punjabi or not[ਸੋਧੋ]

Made separate heading for word ਦਿਹਾਂਤ as issue is ਦਿਹਾਂਤ particular word exists in punjabi or not. Revert action by taributtar on {{ਜ ਬ ਸ਼ਖ਼ਸ}} states ਦਿਹਾਂਤ as non-punjabi word as reason in history log of his action . See copy of log reproduced here:- (ਮੌਜੂਦਾ | ਆਖ਼ਰੀ) ੦੫:੦੭, ੧੬ ਸਿਤੰਬਰ ੨੦੧੨ TariButtar (ਗੱਲਬਾਤ | ਯੋਗਦਾਨ | ਪਾਬੰਦੀ ਲਾਓ) . . (੧,੪੭੦ ਬਾਈਟ) (-੪੫) . . (Guglani (ਗੱਲ-ਬਾਤ) ਦੀ ਸੋਧ 82878 ਨਕਾਰੀ: non-Punjabi word) (ਨਕਾਰੋ).

I have not accepted this and reverted his revision back giving reason simultaneously on sub page ਫਰਮਾ ਗੱਲ-ਬਾਤ:ਜ ਬ ਸ਼ਖ਼ਸ/doc,asked him to give source for his conviction when he went on discussing again & again on this. He has not given any proof for his personal opinion, and beating the bush in talks held with him on the subject .Even to the question that which source will he accept as standard , if it contained ਦਿਹਾਂਤ as Punjabi word , , he has not answered. I provide link here for talks held on my talk page and talk page of page {{ਜ ਬ ਸ਼ਖ਼ਸ}} which are of relevance and interest in this regard.Title Administrative action revert on talk page of guglani added by taributtar--Guglani (talk) ੧੦:੨੨, ੨੧ ਸਿਤੰਬਰ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)

i've made my point in the just previous msg by me. Why not ਮੌਤ; the most understanding, short and easy to understand word. Why the arguments here for ਦਿਹਾਂਤ? The google search (as you beleive in those) proving that ਮੌਤ is used the most and is know to even non-educated Punjabis. Why to create conflicts about the controversial? We should do so if none other is available but not only other, we have the best (ਮੌਤ), then why conflicts. what ਮੌਤ lacks? ਮੌਤ is the mostly used and even neutral. Please check my previous msg for the rest from me. And Guglani please stop making the wiki a battlefield, please, not any personal opinion just be neutral, the fundamental of the wiki. --tari Buttar (talk) ੧੦:੫੮, ੨੧ ਸਿਤੰਬਰ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
In all my studies of Punjabi, I have never come across the word ਦਿਹਾਂਤ (maybe its because I haven't studied enough) but I am familiar with ਮੌਤ and I would say its better to use ਮੌਤ Zarienah (talk) ੦੮:੦੦, ੨੨ ਸਿਤੰਬਰ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
Thanks, Zarienah for your participation in the discussion. Please express your views also on the related Template talk:ਜ ਬ ਸ਼ਖ਼ਸ/doc, for actually which Guglani started the confict and even keeps on making the controversial change ignoring the community that is supporting the word ਮੌਤ. Thanks you! --tari Buttar (talk) ੦੮:੨੬, ੨੨ ਸਿਤੰਬਰ ੨੦੧੨ (UTC)
