Support As I'm not an active content contributor I don't know about the weight of my comment, but I for sure know Icem4k as someone (the only one?) who cares about this Wiki. I mean just take a look at Special:ActiveUsers. If this Wiki wants to grow, he needs extended rights to revert vandalism, delete spam, etc. --Zenith4237 (talk) 20:31, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Mainpage page title[sintha gwero]

Hey, I'm having a look at this wiki after Icem4k and I had a talk at Wikimania and saw some pretty general stuff, like outsourcing all the inline css (e.g. on the main page) to MediaWiki:Common.css and so on. I'd also change (or rather create) MediaWiki:Pagetitle-view-mainpage, because the Main page title is just Wikipedia, whereas the logo says Wikipedia, Encyclopedia Yaulere. I'd change the title of the main page to resemble the text there. Do the active editors here (User:Icem4k, User:DARIO SEVERI, ...?) agree with me proposing some stuff like that? I'll try to work on that a little bit if it's alright. --Zenith4237 (talk) 12:00, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Yes User:Zenith4237, please make the changes you think are necessary. I occasionally collaborate here, mostly reverting vandalism because I don't know the language and can't improve texts. Regards. DARIO SEVERI (talk) 15:43, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
As a local and this being one of the language that i speak and also can write i agree with Zenith4237 my wish is to see this grow and any help that we can get is welcome. --Chabwino (talk) 20:58, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
Thank you both for the answers. Is it ok if I request for interface admin rights here to do these things? I can't edit the MediaWiki:-Namespace otherwise. --Zenith4237 (talk) 21:03, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
I just saw that interface admin gives you sitewide css and js, for other stuff (like MediaWiki:Pagetitle-view-mainpage) you need regular admin rights. Is it ok if I request both? --Zenith4237 (talk) 21:08, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
Please you have my full backing am 100% in Support. --ChaloNiZambia (talk) 21:13, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Note: I applied for and have now been granted interface administrator and administrator rights for three months here. Regarding the Main page title, I would propose these options:

  1. Wikipedia, Encyclopedia Yaulere
  2. Wikipedia – Encyclopedia Yaulere

I personally like the second one better. As I don't know about upper and lower case in Chi-chewa, any help is appreciated. --Zenith4237 (talk) 15:00, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
