Hi there, nice initiative for KDE fans! Uh, just raising a question here. Should the Random page link really take you to a page in a different language? I personally guess not. Not much fun / use / value in being redirected to a random chinese page (obviously I can't read chinese). Any other opinions?
Fair point, but I think it might need webdev/php skills to do anything about that, and I don't have them. Sorry.

Having Mediawiki installation per language like in Wikipedia would solve this, among other things.

You could well be right, but implementation is non-trivial, and we just don't have the man-power. If you are in a position to help with such an implementation, please join us on freenode IRC, channel #kde-www, to discuss it.

Do Userbase has this plan ? If zh.userbase.kde.org comes true , conversion between zh_CN and zh_TW will be very very easy by Mediawiki's ZhConversion.php . I don't need to modify manually

To be honest, at this time I don't know enough about the subject, and neverendingo is on vacation, so I can't discuss it with him. My first impression is that a name-space would have to be created for every possible language, then every single page would have to be copied and pasted into a newly-created page using that name-space, and finally the original one deleted. I'll read up some more this week, to make sure that I've understood it correctly. We have been saying for ages that we need to organise a 'sprint' so that we can get together and work on various issues - this is certainly one that would benefit from such a meeting. I'll let you know if I find out anything more useful.
