Admin help needed[eedit soorce]

I am working on cleanup up {{Infobox Kintra}}. One of the main problems that needs cleaning is the Government section (see the infobox at Scotland for example). Getting it to work is not a problem, but several additions to the Common.css page to support Infoboxes are needed. As admin access is needed for Mediawiki changes, an admin would need to make the additions. The additions are on my monobook.css page under the headings Infobox template styles and Styles for geography infoboxes (the changes added in these diffs). The template changes themselves can be seen here but need the css changes to be shown properly. The main changes to the infobox are:

  1. Seperate the sections for Govrenment, Heid o State, Prime Meenister an First Meenister into separate rows but format the table to show them all as a single section.
  2. Combine the display for Caipital and Lairgest ceety into one section.
  3. Combine siller, time zone, naitional anthem, naitional flouer an patron saunt into one section and make all but time zone optional (will not display if they aren't listed)
  4. Clean up the borders between cells. Each section has a main border above and below it with none inside it.

Other section mergings can easily be done as well as making the display of other things optional (open to suggestions).

Other need: Mediawiki:Currentevents-url (the sidebar link to get to this page) links to Gaun on the nou which is just a redirect to here. The page should be set to Wikipedia:Gaun on the nou. This would bypass the need for a redirect. Creol 18:32, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

An aw, Mediawiki:April - Apryle, Mediawiki:December - Dizember but the airticles uise Aprile and December for the spellin. This causes problems with date formatin an wikilinks. Creol 01:26, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

A think A can help wi the months at laist. We hae talked aboot December afore an sae December is the ane tae uise. As for the ither, A'd say Aprile acause that's whit A foond in the DSL. Scroggie 15:07, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
