Link is wrong. Español should be with Upper case letter.

Oh i agree, 

 

But this is bad idea.

Better ask eRep Ambassadors (Translators) to do this (not free, ofc). In that case eRep and Wiki will be translated in one style.

 

 

there's some term used in game, and it's a couple of options how to translate it in wiki, every time should check how did Translator from game translated it, so players not be confused

Could you please provide me with some links/examples so I can get one of my colleagues to take a look and I'll get back to you with the final decision.

I replied, I got no answer in 2 weeks. eRep, remember you needed our help. Sure, there's a reward, but it's hard to differentiate between good/bad translations and some languages are more left behind others, so some users will naturally get more points for having more to translate. Not that their effort is not worth more if they have to translate more, but it still feels like eRep doesn't appreciate the quality work and the workload for each language. Too bad it wasn't worth my time.

It's Friday, they're probably not in the mood, then comes the weekend when nothing happens. Monday could be the day but I wouldn't bet on it, so who knows? They didn't answer in two weeks, so they might as well forget about this if that's not the case already.

I have a snapshot of the results from yesterday, should publish them later on today.

I do apologise about that, I will get one of my colleagues to check the articles and we will make a decision about it before publishing the results.

Are the rewards just for other languages or can English people get the rewards too?

Ok, Gucio. Will you keep the monthly award after this event?

I asked for a reason - just so I know the translations would be evaluated by quality, not quantity. You didn't even look at them, there's no decision and now it's too late to do anything else regarding the translations deadline for August. You, know... no gold can cover for this lack of interest I keep seeing at eRepublik. I have no idea if reading this affects you in any way but it would be "great" if you'd be in our shoes for 6 months.

Are the rewards just for other languages or can English people get the rewards too?

The rewards are based on the contributions made. Editing any page will count towards your score and contributions. Hence, it's not limited just to non-English pages, although this month was aimed at pages in other languages. Nevertheless, the rewards are still based on the score on the wiki rather than number of pages translated.

 

Ok, Gucio. Will you keep the monthly award after this event?

At the moment there is no plans. For September the rewards will go back to normal. I have been thinking of doing boost rewards every few months with maybe different themes/topics, but no concrete plans yet.

Yes, you are correct about that. I've spoke to my colleagues about the translations, as I don't speak Romanian. The translations were indeed of low quality. In most cases, we would consider to exclude the citizens from the rewards, however in this case there was no need for that as the user in question didn't reach the top 10. You are more than welcome to correct any spelling mistakes, would be very much appreciate if not I will find some template to add to these pages with a info box.

Yeap, just added the gold rewards. More info in the post below soon.

Hi Guys,

 

Thanks a lot to everyone who has contributed last month. I've published the wiki rewards and scores here: http://wiki.erepubli...al_Wiki:Rewards

 

The gold rewards just have been added, please note there would be no notification of this. The gold balance may not update straight away as it is cached. However, you can force the update by either making a gold transactions or going to the special items page.

 

The top two citizens, will soon receive a message from me to arrange the packs getting added to their account.

 

Congratulations everyone and thank you for participating again.

You probably don't know how much translators earn in the real world, but even August's rewards were absurdly low by comparison - a valid comparison considering you want good translations. So if it wasn't the rewards that made me contribute last month, guess what it was: I still cared about what our players read in the wiki. But if it's not important enough for you to offer a (relatively) prompt reply when asked, then I have no reason to get involved in this.

 

You are more than welcome to revise your attitude towards the community, although I would probably start farting rainbows before that happens.
