Length[edit]

Bugger me that's a lot of things to correct! Mglovesfun (talk) 20:20, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

Should maybe be sorted by (entry) language and broken into subsections to allow section editing. Mglovesfun (talk) 22:09, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
With the new refresh it's now pre-sorted by entry language. That should make deleting easier. I'm going to leave it all as one table to enable sorting by column 1 or 3. --Bequw¢τ 19:04, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
Also of note, it won't accept {{sro}} for Campidanese Sardinian, which is odd. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:27, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

A bit of analysis[edit]

Analysing, I'd say there are not many typos here, most of these are copy-and-paste from one section to another (Spanish to Galician for example) where the codes (es, gl). Serbo-Croatian is one issue, while the thre Norwegians are another, as we have a user that treats Norwegian Nynorsk and Norwegian Bokmål as dialects of Norwegian, which in one sense they are, but they have ISO codes and we don't usurp ISO codes without some serious discussion beforehand. Mglovesfun (talk) 09:17, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Norwegian is such a mess, it might be better to leave it - contributors are mixing no, nb and nn indiscriminantly. Mglovesfun (talk) 18:29, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

A wish to include PIE in the list[edit]

Is it possible to also catch the mistakes involving the {{proto}} template? I know I have made those. --Vahagn Petrosyan 17:04, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Bequw said he was going to do that next. I've corrected a couple by hand that I found by chance. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:11, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
here it is. Thanks for all the great correcting work. --Bequw¢τ 22:25, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

Almost finished[edit]

Things that aren't fixed:

  • The Norwegian entries, which have inconsistent codes.
  • 小開, no code for Shanghainese.
  • Creoles, which also aren't consistent with the codes we have.

Nadando 00:01, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Yeah I'm totally leaving Norwegian as the editors as mixing the codes no, nb and nn. mo is the only other one, and again, I'm not sure what the problem is. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:07, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Oh bugger[edit]

Bequwbots listed all the {{etyl:VL.}}, {{etyl:ML.}}, {{etyl:ML.}}, {{etyl:LL.}} ones for some reason. Perhaps because they're redirects? Anyway, they need to be removed as they're all valid. Mglovesfun (talk) 00:01, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the note, it should be fixed for the next dump. --Bequw τ 23:23, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
Same thing only worse. DCDuring TALK 15:13, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
I reverted BequwBot. Mglovesfun (talk) 18:15, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

entries with no categories[edit]

Would it be possible to find also entries with Etymology section but without categories ([Category:* terms derived from *] or [Category:* terms with unknown etymologies])? For example:

===Etymology===
From Latin ''[[zzz]]''

Maro 22:38, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Possible yes, but seems like a separate projects, as these are etyl problems per se. Those would be entries that can be improved as opposed to ones with problems. Mglovesfun (talk) 18:14, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

"Incorrect categorization"?[edit]

There's a number of entries marked as "incorrect categorization" in the table, which the header describes as "Incorrect categorization (eg {{etyl|fr}} instead of {{etyl|fr|es}} in a Spanish section)". However, many of the entries so listed do already have both source and target langcodes. Is this table just out of date, or is there some other categorization issue that I'm missing? -- Eiríkr Útlendi │ Tala við mig 17:08, 26 July 2012 (UTC)

At the moment, they all seem to be Maori. I thought maybe there was a mismatch between the spellings "Maori" and "Māori" going on, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I don't know what the problem is either. —Angr 17:16, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
Yes, that was my first guess too, but "{{etyl|mi|-}}" as a test case produces "Maori", which is what these "incorrect" entries use as the heading name. Quite odd. -- Eiríkr Útlendi │ Tala við mig 17:20, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
Removed 'em. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:45, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
