Hello. I saw you revised the table. Thanks for the edit. But I hope you can fix some things.

  1. Not all users know English. So I want to change {{Abbr}} parts to number.
  2. I need to clean up the 2016 statistics, but can you temporarily modify the table to fit on the screen? Currently the table exceeds the screen.

Thank you and I hope you stay safe. --Sotiale (talk) 16:31, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

@Sotiale: Good point. Let me take a look. I don't think there's any way to make the table fit a screen because all screens are different. A screen on what device? With what settings? Koavf (talk) 18:25, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
What I told you is based on a computer, not a mobile device, when viewed in IE or Google Chrome, Firefox. It appears that all of these three browsers have crossed the right end of MediaWiki table. I've asked other users, they also say they're crossing the right end of their browser. --Sotiale (talk) 11:40, 30 May 2020 (UTC)
@Sotiale: It's four years' of data. At some point, you will have too many columns that any display can render, so your options are only 1.) horizontal scrolling or 2.) removing some columns. Koavf (talk) 19:12, 30 May 2020 (UTC)
How about reducing the font size a bit? I agree in part with your opinion, and also the statistics for 2016 will be preserved after June, but I hope that the table will be a little smaller temporarily before preserving. In previous version, the font size was small, but it fit on one screen. --Sotiale (talk) 05:05, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
@Sotiale: Sure, but that also impacts legibility and readability. There is only so much information that can be inserted in a table without horizontal scrolling. :/ Koavf (talk) 05:08, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
Yes, I know that part well. Thank you for your generous understanding! and I'm sorry to bother you. .. Ah, it's already the end of the month.. I'm thinking of doing statistics manually, so I don't want to do it already :| Anyway, please do so. --Sotiale (talk) 05:35, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
@Sotiale: It's not a bother: we're just trying to make it better. Koavf (talk) 05:58, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
@Sotiale: The only way to internationalize the page that I know of is the cludge that we have at species:Wikispecies:Internationalization. I'm happy to help with that here as I don't really know of any serious attempts at internationalizatoin on beta.wv. If you have any other thoughts, please let me know: I'm all ears.
