Apparently people at ru have filled their their Wiktionary with completely empty templates saying "This word or expression has not been translated yet. Please add your translation."
ru.wikt has 105 877 entries, out of which 81 496 are empty templates.
This makes the Russian Wiktionary entirely useless; people complain they have stopped checking it, because they keep seeing empty entries.
I suggest we stop adding interwiki links to ru:.
I already wrote something on the English Beer Parlour, but this list is probably more appropriate.
A new logo of the project Wiktionary has been voted at the end of October. But the old logo has not been replaced in any project I have visited (All the 1000+).
Why isn't it implemented now? Maybe because the logo is still incomplete, some issues are still discussed: which letter should be written? W (from Wiktionary) or A (from the alphabet)? Problems with the Japanese letters, etc.
By the pace is is going, there will never be a final version.
So, what do we do?
We could speed things up by forcing the remaining issues to be discussed (in the English Beer Parlour for example).
We could also "forget" about this logo and just keep the old one. Of course it has been voted, but it looks like nobody cares now. And some people complained about the vote procedure itself.
I would have supported this logo even though I dislike it (for many reasons), but the way things went and are going now, I would not anymore. Do we still need this logo? It doesn't add anything compared to the old one (maybe more solid, but that's all).
If I could, I would just ignore the vote and either keep the current one, or begin another procedure but this time with a proper preparation (there has been too much problems), with more time to propose versions, etc.
For example, if I organize a vote on fr: (the project where I work the most) with the question: "Do you want to change the logo with the new one or keep the current one?" I think there would be more votes for keeping the old. In the end, it is still the Wiktionary communities who decide, isn't it?
Here is a link to the new logo page on meta: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wiktionary/logo
I would like to know your opinion about that ^^
