Interwikiista extraordinaire* User:Episteme started uploading the babel templates here, and I think they're useful for Wikitravellers. I'm not sure, however, where to link to them (I added them to Wikitravel:Help for now).
This idea started with Wikimedia, and I think at least the basics translate for Wikitravel. But I also know that userboxes have been really controversial on Wikipedia, so there may be some ideas about being careful with these.
Let's get this started for Wikitravel, and see what we need to adapt for local use. --Evan 12:30, 27 April 2006 (EDT)
* How many languages are there in that description?
Can we just copy the Babel language templates from wikipedia? Vivafelis 21:03, 13 July 2006 (EDT)
So it looks like we can't get more than 5 languages on our Babel templates on our userpages. Am I seeing that right? --Zephyros 01:25, 30 November 2006 (EST)
let's use categories!
See Wikitravel talk:Categories#let's use categories for Babel tagging of users (please leave your comments there). --DenisYurkin 12:24, 28 November 2006 (EST)
Guys, I can only find Turkish, but I want to add Azerbaijani to the list- how can I do that? Thanks!!
new language won't show in Babel box
I just added Hindi to the list and created the template boxes for it, what is the final step I'm missing so that they will actually display when added to the Babel box? – cacahuate talk 21:50, 17 March 2007 (EDT)
Is there a reason why I can 'only' use 6 languages? And why does it need the number of languages as an input anyway? Keep up the good work! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Sjors (talk • contribs)
I've added Welsh (cy) templates. I've used the text from Wiki Commons, however I don't think the definitions tie up that well with those for existing languages on Wikitravel (plus it only had definitions for cy-1, cy-2 and cy-3). So if anyone speaks "formal" Welsh better than me please plunge forward and improve them. Tarr3n 06:18, 26 June 2008 (EDT)
I'd like to suggest modifying the colors for a more even progression from -1 to -4 (at least). Any thoughts? LtPowers 22:31, 15 March 2009 (EDT)
How come some of the Slovenian templates are messed up? Ctoocheck 19:24, 2 June 2009 (EDT)
