Hello, Avichai, and welcome to the English Wikiquote, a free compendium of quotations written collaboratively by people just like you!

To ask for advice or assistance feel free to drop by the Village Pump or ask on my talk page. Happy editing! And again, welcome! ~ MosheZadka (Talk) 11:41, 24 August 2005 (UTC)[reply]

Re: Just a question[edit]

sorry for the hebrew. אני חייב לשאול. אתה ישראלי נכון? למה אתה עובד בויקיציטוט באנגלית. למה אתה לא כותב בעברית אם אתה יודע לקרוא את מה שאנחנו כותבים. הייתי פונה אליך בויקיציטוט העברי אבל אין לך שם דף משתמש. עוד דבר אחד- באתר העברי יש לנו בעיות עם הציטוט היומי, אנחנו חייבים לשנות את הדף הראשי כל יום כדי שהציטוט יתעדכן ובכלל כל המערכת מובלגת ולא ברורה. אצלכם המערכת מעולה ורציתי לבדוק אם אתה מוכן לראות אם אתה יכול לעזור שם איכשהו, או אם יש לך עיצה מסוימת ואתה רוצה שאני אשנה, אין בעיה. תודה רבה מראש, והמשך עבודה נעימה Avichai 18:13, 3 September 2005 (UTC) ושוב, מצטער על העברית אבל אין לי כח לאנגלית[reply]

Translation: I have to ask. You're Israeli, right? Why do you work in English Wikiquote. Why don't you write in Hebrew if you know how to read what we write. I'd approach you in Hebrew wikiquote but you do not have a user page there. One more thing -- in the Hebrew site we have problems with the daily quote, we have to change the main page every day for the quote to be updated, and in general the whole system is a (mess) and unclear. You guys have an excellent system and I wanted to see if you can help somehow, or if you have a certain advice and you want me to change, no problem. Thanks in advance and enjoy the work. Again, sorry for the Hebrew but I don't have the strength for English.

1. Yes, I'm Israeli.
2. I hate typing in Hebrew. LTR is a pain, and my typing speed is way slower. Also, I dislike configuring my computers for dual-language input.
3. Most of the quotes I like are in English anyway (check MosheZadka for the kind of stuff I mostly work on).
4. I've no idea how to QOTD system works here. Kalki handles the technical bits. Wikiquote:Quote of the day has a "purge cache" link which users can use to force a reload. Talk:Main Page has some discussions re: cache purging.

Maverick149 did all of the original "automation" setup here for Quote of the Day links back in January, and I am not sure about the purge functions that might be involved. Setting up a "purge link" should work on any page one wishes it to, but I did not set up any "automatic" purge to operate here and rarely do a manual purge myself. I don't see that it would be necessary or useful to link the purge of a page on the Hebrew Wikiquote to one here, and a setting up at least one page with such a "purge link" on the Hebrew project would probably be sufficient. ~ Kalki 22:06, 3 September 2005 (UTC)[reply]
