== Cool Site ==
I think your site really rocks. How can I help? --exampleuser 11:25, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
:What are your interests? --[[User:Danimo|danimo]] 11:30, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
::I read mailing lists a lot so I could help out with FAQ collection. --exampleuser 11:35, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
'''And now for the actual questions:'''
== Multilanguage ==
Are there any plans to have pages in other language than english? In Techbase it is really nice to have it. Specially users are frequently using only there native language. Cheers. --[[User:Mark Ziegler|Mark Ziegler]] 12:52, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
:The multilanguage template is in place, see (and use) [[Template:I18n/Language_Navigation_Bar|this template]]. --[[User:Danimo|danimo]] 16:17, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
::Should we add i18n template to every page or just for main pages? --[[User:Mark Ziegler|Mark Ziegler]] 09:59, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
::Is it possible to just provide a wiki platform, and let users to fill it in our own native language instead of translating the original page?  I mean, for example, make a page http://userbase.kde.org/zh_TW/ or a site called http://zh_TW.userbase.kde.org/. -- [[User:Franklin|Franklin]]
:::The problem as I see it is that information would not be exchanged across all available languages.  I don't know the answer to that, so would welcome any suggestions.  --[[User:Annew|annew]] 09:21, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
::::I do not see any problem, this is how wikipedia.org work. If needed, we can develop a script to do some verifications accross all userbase wiki. What do you think about that? --[[User:Sheedy|Sheedy]] 05:45, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
:::::You mean it would be possible to pick up content from any language and have it translated to all the other languages?  Even if it could only be done to English plus three or four languages it would be awesome.  This is way beyond my capability, so please tell us more about what you envisage.  --[[User:Annew|annew]] 20:49, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
: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.  --[[User:Annew|annew]] 16:15, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
== KDE versions. ==
How can we easily indicate at each page, for which KDE version this information is valid ?
Maybe some templates, at least with 3.x, 4.x, distribution-specific.
Or each app can have box on their page with info about "what you have to do to have this app on your system". So for example for konqueror there will write that it is available in every kde install. For plasmoids there will be info that you need kde4 and packages this and that. Etc.
--[[User:Ajuc|Ajuc]] 15:02, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
:I vote for it. Having a small indicator for kde3 or kde4 would be nice. --[[User:Mark Ziegler|Mark Ziegler]] 11:00, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
::I would like to see that, as well as indicators for skill levels where appropriate.  To get started we really need some dedicated icons, though.  I don't think they need to be as detailed as oxygen icons, so maybe this is something we could do ourselves?  Open to suggestions on that.
:::I just created two templates for those:
''Note: See follow-up below''
:::Please put comments in the Discussion tab of [[Template:KDE3]] and [[Template:KDE4]] if there's something you need done with it. --[[User:Jucato|Jucato]]
::::It was decided that the KDE4 tag is redundant so it was removed. The default information that should be on the wiki is for KDE 4. Only KDE3-specific information needs to be tagged with <tt><nowiki>{{KDE3}}</nowiki></tt>. All references to the KDE4 tag have been removed. --[[User:Jucato|Jucato]]
Also, suggestions on form of icon - a circle with KDEx?  circle with Skillx?  They may be difficult to read at small sizes.  Please give us some ideas. --[[User:Annew|annew]] 11:55, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
hm, what about things that are written for 4.2 only for example (new features)? could it be done that the changes appear then when 4.2 is released? and perhaps a new icon is needed then to distinguish 4.1 and 4.2. [[User:Katastrophe|Katastrophe]] 00:23, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
:The contents of the wiki should reflect information about the current stable release when it's available. Features planned for future releases can be found in [http://techbase.kde.org/Schedules] while new features or changes are provided in release announcements. For features that are available in the current stable but not in previous stable releases, those should just be noted when appropriate. I don't think a separate icon tag is necessary.
::However, when a new feature like that is added it would be wise to mention which version first carries it.  --[[User:Annew|annew]] 07:18, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
== KDE4 feature from KDE 3 ==
There is a very useful feature in KDE 3 that I am waiting for in KDE 4. The ability to click anywhere on the desktop and have it pull up my application menu. I do not know what this feature is officially called, but This is really the last big piece of functionality that I am waiting on before taking the plunge to KDE 4 on all of my machines.
Please, keep up the good work.
:Please record wishes on bugs.kde.org - developers may not see these pages. --[[User:Annew|annew]] 11:55, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
== Rendering in different Browsers ==
Moved to http://userbase.kde.org/Userbase_Technical_Issues
== OpenID Issues ==
Moved to http://userbase.kde.org/Userbase_Technical_Issues
:Is it possible to have userbase remember my Login, so that I don't have to relogin each time I close the window? It's really annoying... --[[User:Alec|Alec]] 02:06, 25 October 2008 (UTC)
::As far as I know, it's not possible.  I always check 'stay logged in' and just minimise the browser, but I still get kicked out from time to time.  I don't know whether that's an openid issue, a userbase issue, or a firefox issue. --[[User:Annew|annew]] 17:57, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
:::I found that there's a checkbox in Preferences called "Remember my login on this computer" which does exactly what I want. It would be good if it was also on the logon page, though. -[[User:Alec|Alec]] 15:40, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
==Length of this page==
To make reading easier I propose that we clean up this page from time to time, removing threads that are resolved for the present.  On this occasion I propose to remove
Content from http://wiki.kde.org/
Icons on the main page
Dictionary page with terms not known by non-linux users    and
User name/password login
unless I hear objections in the next 24 hours.  Bear in mind that it is possible to retrieve text from History, should it be necessary.
--[[User:Annew|annew]] 14:00, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
:I would be good to have a page where we can discuss about technical issues. IMHO users should start here to ask for content or to place their ideas, technical issues should not be discussed here --[[User:Mark Ziegler|Mark Ziegler]] 14:48, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
:: http://userbase.kde.org/Userbase_Technical_Issues --[[User:Annew|annew]] 17:57, 26 October 2008 (UTC)
== Stubs and empty pages ==
[[Welcome_to_KDE_UserBase_(pt_BR)]] is an empty page. Please delete it. --[[User:Mark Ziegler|Mark Ziegler]] 13:32, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
:Deleted, as it has not been touched for 3 months.  I think we should not delete an empty page unless it has been around for, say, 1 month.  Sometimes people start work then come back to it later.  3 months, though, is too long, IMO.  --[[User:Annew|annew]] 16:12, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
Same for [[Introduzione a KDE]] and [[Ottenere aiuto]] --[[User:Mark Ziegler|Mark Ziegler]] 17:33, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
:Done --[[User:Annew|annew]] 17:53, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
Found one more: [[KJots]] --[[User:Mark Ziegler|Mark Ziegler]] 14:35, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
:Oops - that one's my fault.  I got kjots and knotes confused at one point.  I should have gone back and finished the job.  I'll do it now. --[[User:Annew|annew]] 15:27, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
