[edit] Translate this?

Should this template be translated into all the different languages? I have a way to do it, but I should get permisison first. The Goblin!! 23:19, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

This template should eventually be translated into all the languages that we support. I think it would be a good idea to post the translations on this talk page first, so we can best figure out how to implement them into the code, which is already quite complex. — It's dot com 23:30, 31 October 2007 (UTC)
I was thinking to have different subpages of this template, and depending what the pagename is, eg. en or fr, then it would include the correct language. I'll make a prototype at my userspace. The Goblin!! 23:34, 31 October 2007 (UTC)
Ummm. I do believe there has been discussion on this before. And I recall it lead to the creation of the international welcoming pages. If anything, I think we should wait at least until the welcoming project is rolling. --Sysrq868 23:40, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Two questions

I just noticed that the subtitles header still links to the old site url's (example since this subtitles page was just edited: interview.html instead of toons/the-interview). Can this be updated? By The Cheatbot, perhaps? Bigger concern: The local subtitles viewer doesn't have a Flash emulator, so the subtitles can't be viewed on this site. I trust that this is a known issue, but is there a way to fix this? The Knights Who Say Ni 21:24, 25 April 2022 (UTC)

I'd love to get this back up and running, but considering how the subtitles script had to interact directly with the Flash file, I wouldn't get my hopes up on it being possible. I'd never say never, of course.
Updating the toon links is actually relatively easy as far as edits go. It will take just two changes: updating the data and making the proper adjustments to the template. It would be a bit of work to make sure it's all looked up and formatted correctly but it could be done. Since this project is currently dead in the water, however, I wouldn't consider it a priority. — It's dot com 01:43, 25 October 2022 (UTC)
