Tech:Rollback-success word order is wrong in Japanese

From Wikitravel Shared
Jump to: navigation, search

What happens[edit]

Two user names are swapped in the result page of a revert.

For example, when I revert last edit(s) by Badguy back to version by Goodguy, the result says "Goodguy による編集を Badguy による版へと差し戻しました。" which means "Reverted edits by Goodguy; changed back to last version by Badguy." It's so astonishing.

I found it in Japanese and French Wikitravel at least.

When it happens[edit]

When a sysop reverts last edit(s) in an article using Japanese user interface.

What should happen[edit]

User names must be swapped.

How to fix it[edit]

In Japanese Wikitravel, it is fixed by swapping $1 and $2 in ja:MediaWiki:Rollback-success. However we cannot do it in other language versions because the message is written in the site's default language. Any way to do it in other language versions' Japanese user interface?

It's needed to change core interface file of all language versions. -- Sergey kudryavtsev 02:14, 27 August 2008 (EDT)

Additional comments[edit]

The changes applied to ru:MediaWiki:Rollback-success/ja. Please check it. -- Sergey kudryavtsev 02:12, 27 August 2008 (EDT)

Seems good (though I can't test it actually in ru:). I checked it worked in fr:, and applied same change to de:, en: and it: too. Thanks for your prompt advice. --Episteme 10:58, 27 August 2008 (EDT)
Is this fixed then? If so, please change the category to {{fixedbug}}. Thanks! --Peter Talk 13:02, 27 August 2008 (EDT)
Not fixed. Altering MediaWiki:Rollback-success/ja at every language version is work around only, IHMO. -- Sergey kudryavtsev 15:15, 27 August 2008 (EDT)

I'm closing this for now, it's not a huge issue, and will probably get resolved by a MediaWiki update eventually, just like other similar mistakes have in the past – cacahuate talk 04:20, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
