Thanks for template cleaning & a few questions

Thanks for cleaning the code and further improving Template:Mod translation supported, I created that in my sandbox based on existing templates on the wiki before pasting it to the template page. I don't really sure how the codes work, I'm just applying IFs that I learnt from C++ into the syntax used on Wiki.

Few questions:

  1. Is there any central discussion for wiki-related contents? Maybe a central discussion page in wiki itself, or a forum (or subforum)?
  2. Some of templates are to be used in all languages as it only contains graphic or things without needing translations (eg. Template:Hearts, Template:Languages) but what about the documentations? I'm not sure where to write the translations of documentations since they were mostly documented in <noinclude> section in same template, duplicating the whole template to translate will be redundant as we will still using the original template.

No problem! If you ever need help with understanding templates, you should check out mw:Help:Templates and/or mw:Help:Extension:ParserFunctions.
To answer your questions:
1. I'm not aware of such a place for central discussion. Not a lot of people actively contribute to the wiki, so I pretty much do things on my own. If I had to choose between the wiki and the forum, I think the forum should be sufficient for discussion.
2. I'm thinking of making a new template for documentation, similar to mw:Template:Documentation. For templates that do not need translation, we can add Template:Languages inside the doc subpage. For example, Template:Languages/doc, Template:Languages/doc/ms, etc. would contain the documentation and have {{Languages|Template:Languages/doc}}. (The Template:Languages/doc part is necessary so that the template page will point to the doc pages.)

I've created translations for Template:Languages & Template:Hearts at Template:Languages/doc/ms & Template:Hearts/doc/ms respectively, is it showing as you expected with documentation template, or I need to add something? --Muhdnurhidayat (talk | contribs | sign) 07:55, 10 May 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, it shows as expected. Thanks for asking!
