A couple days ago SE sites went into read-only mode. In particular for Stack Overflow in Russian we got a unlocalized messages:


Top message, Login and XOXO should be available to localize.

  • @rene I don't know what is it, screenshot is not mine. If you have English version of this message we could compare them. I hope developers know what is it actually. Jan 27, 2017 at 20:30

    It is internet slang for Kiss and Hugs: urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=xoxo

  • @rene I didn't know before. I think if it will be able to localize, we can find something Russian specific. Jan 27, 2017 at 20:40

These strings will be in Transifex whenever the strings are imported from Q&A next time: Login (which may already be there? not sure off the top of my head) and XOXO,.

    What about the read only banner? I think that's the main issue reported here as it's more than just a single word. Jan 27, 2017 at 23:01

    @ShadowWizard Whoops, you're right. I completely missed that. Will look again on Monday.

  • Still can't find strings from the top banner in transifex. Feb 4, 2017 at 15:53
  • @alexolut Yeah, turns out that banner comes from a spot that needs some special care. I have a change ready that should enable localization, but I need to run it by a couple other people for review.
