Language infobox color

Hello. I seem to be unable to change the color of my conlang's infobox, is there a trick to it?

Ooops! Misplaced Page

Hi Chrysophylax,

Apologies, I goofed when I was making an IPA template for the vowels in Nankôre. Now when I go to the Templates page I see "Nankôre" but I don't see the name for the template, which is "Nankore_Vowels_IPA". Could you please help me and remove "Nankôre" from the Templates page and replace it with "Nankore_Vowels_IPA"? I know I successfully created the template, because it appears on my conlang's page when I call the template.



Subcategory for Czecklish

Can you make a subcategory for my conlang Czecklish? I have three separate articles for it, and it's getting hard to manage them. There will likely be three or four more articles concerning Czecklish in the future. I believe it would be more convenient for Linguifex visitors and users to view Czecklish and its various articles if it had a subcategory, like Khaz or Valian.


Can you delete my Netagin page and all its associated pages? Many thanks, IlL (talk) 21:50, 29 October 2014 (CET)

- Sure! If you don't mind me asking, any particular reason why? --Admin.png Χρυσοφύλαξ 22:02, 29 October 2014 (CET)
I decided to discontinue Netagin... it struck me as too much an ad-hoc hodgepodge. Though features from it will be absorbed into my other languages. In passing, what do you think about partaking in Linguifex Relay the Fourth (prematurely)? IlL (talk) 01:17, 30 October 2014 (CET)
Ah, I know that feeling. I would be okay with that! --Admin.png Χρυσοφύλαξ 01:42, 30 October 2014 (CET)

How does one even

... make an a priori conlang they feel confident about? CEIGE⟨TAWK⟩ 14:01, 7 December 2014 (CET)

Ixnay'ed on the Acebookfay Accountway?

It's coming up as a removed account for spam/abuse - you've got my email (somewhere maybe...? :P ) so feel free to email me mate CEIGE⟨TAWK⟩ 13:12, 10 March 2015 (CET)

Concerning the Fourth Linguifex Relay

Since Dē Graut Bʉr hasn't shown any signs of activity, I'm passing the relay to you.

It seems Waahlis has not completed his whisper in time. Will you pass the relay to the next person? IlL (talk) 15:59, 16 July 2015 (CEST)

One å is enough. I got sick while translating the relay. But please, do pass it on. Waahlis.png Waahlis 16:17, 16 July 2015 (CEST)

Done --Admin.png Χρυσοφύλαξ 16:23, 16 July 2015 (CEST)

Can you do me a favor?

Could you delete every subpage and their talks listed here: User:Ílchőfti Lēmáthīd? You can leave a redirect from User:Ílchőfti Lēmáthīd to my current username. I've moved beyond that ugly name. IlL (talk) 04:14, 13 July 2015 (CEST)

Done --Admin.png Χρυσοφύλαξ 15:13, 13 July 2015 (CEST)

How do I tag?

I want to get my conlang, Latirdo, on the list of languages, but I can't add the category to the article. What do I do? Thanks.

--Sihithe Avralte (talk) 17:49, 22 March 2016 (CET)

You add the category by writing [[Category:blahblah]] anywhere in the document. I usually recommend at the end. I have added the relevant tags to your article for you for now. If you have any other questions, I'lll gladly answer them. --Admin.png Χρυσοφύλαξ 20:01, 22 March 2016 (CET)


Just wanted to say thank you for fixing the page. Didn't know, where to do it though, so I'm just leaving it here. (Raistas)


If I make a mistake and create a page that is clearly stupid, how do I tag it for deletion? I don't have the power and it doesn't seem right to bug specific people to delete a specific page. Is there something [[:Category:Delete me]]? --Aquatiki (talk) 03:39, 1 December 2018 (CET)

You should tag it with {{speedy|reason}}. Check Template:Speedy out. Admin.png Χρυσοφύλαξ 11:07, 2 December 2018 (CET)

Infobox language

So, I recently noticed that I'm prevented from editing templates that're transcluded on the main page, specifically Template:Infobox language and its subpages, and I was wondering either 1. if there's a way to work around this, 2. if you could turn-off cascading for the main page, or 3. if I could be given permission to edit these pages? If you just don't want non-admins editing these pages, that's completely fine too, but please let me know. -User:Учхљёная (talk,conlangs,edits). 18:20, 19 January 2019 (CET).

Hi, that sounds perfectly reasonable. I will investigate this weekend if there's something we can do technically to allow safe users to edit high-frequency templates --Admin.png Χρυσοφύλαξ 14:35, 22 January 2019 (CET)
I've disabled cascading protection for now. Hopefully it won't bite the wiki in its bum. --Admin.png Χρυσοφύλαξ 00:03, 24 February 2020 (UTC)

Deletion of Template:LangAbb

Template:LangAbb was deleted, breaking functionality of Template:Etym, which is used in various Contionary entries. I do not ask it be reinstated, but I would like to have access to its history so that I can view its interface and update Etym to use Template:ISO. Nevermind, I figured it out, the template is back in working order

Deletion of an image and changing of a page title


I'm quite new here in Linguifex and I did a (or two) mistake(s). 1. At updating a image which shows ,,Zimâna Ħāwārî (translates to ,,Hawari language")" in my newly invented Ṭoňżeĝâyî script, it always shows the former version of the image where I set the direction so: top to bottom, right to left, even if it should be left to right. To fix that issue, I would like to let it be deleted, and I don't know how one does it. 2. This mistake is less important to fix: Instead of giving my article title the name ,,Hawari language" I just wrote ,,Hawari". If possible, would you be able to change it?

Thank you and have a good day👋🏼

Update (01.05.2020, 17:29 UTC): Thank you for fixing these two issues.😀

Yours sincerely, MansenBk (talk) 16:27, 1 May 2020 (UTC).

Lost Conlangs

Hi. A while ago a user on Frathwiki started a project to try and rescue info about conlangs that had been stored on Langmaker in the 2000s, gone down with it but was retrievable via the Web Archive copies of Langmaker. They got so far then drifted off. I'm volunteering to start it again, and I also want to make my own (privately run but publicly accessible) list of the world's conlangs (probably in spreadsheet and searchable database form). I want to combine the jobs to reduce work time; I also think it would be good to have the same info in different places (as what was so unfortunate about Langmaker going down was so much of its info was not stored elsewhere). So I was wondering, would you be interested in allowing similar records of such langs here? I'm guessing not on account of your "non-sufficient content/long inactivity" deletion rule plus high style standards etc. However even if not how about a single page (/multiple if running over) with a name and barest details? I'd be prepared to do all the work, although help would certainly be appreciated. :) Matthew McVeagh (talk) 04:32, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

If you keep it on one page that'd be fine Admin.png Χρυσοφύλαξ 07:32, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

Safety on the Website

Dear Chrysophylax, I have a quite important question about the website itself. Well, whenever I (it is also not only me) open the site from Discord, I get a warning saying that this website may steal personal or financial information and thus should be closed. Do you know why the warning appears?

Yours sincerely, MansenBk MansenBk (talk) 15:40, 2 February 2021 (UTC)

Nope, no idea. We use TLS 1.3 and don't take any personal and financial data beyond your email and username when you register. Admin.png Χρυσοφύλαξ 00:02, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

New featured language

Wow, I'm quite honored to see that Avendonian has become a featured language. Many thanks! Cheers, sware • 🗣 • 🏲 16:16, 19 July 2021 (UTC)

Tahano Hikamu font

Hi! I've been tinkering around lately with Ayeri entries. As you probably know, Ayeri is written in this quite-Brahmic script called Tahano Hikamu. The creator of Ayeri, Carsten Becker, created a font for it and released it. I've been wondering if it'd be possible for you or any administrator to add this font to Linguifex so I can use it. Since it's based on SIL Graphite engine, the font declaration must use the .ttf file, not .woff. Thanks! Cheers, sware • 🗣 • 🏲 15:17, 25 June 2022 (UTC)

Edit: Wording and further details. 11:46, 27 June 2022 (UTC)
Edit 2: I'll also need a script definition in Linguifex's common.css for .Ayer, much like Wiktionary's. Thanks! 17:12, 3 August 2022 (UTC)
