What's New on Tatoeba? - Your weekly recap

※ The "native" information is back! Sentences owned by users with a native-like level are once again identifiable. In the old design "(native)" is displayed next to the username. In the new design a star is displayed next to the sentence. You can activate the option from your Settings page. Thanks to Guybrush88 for the original report and to AndiPersti (on GitHub) for fixing the issue and adding the functionality to the new design.

※ Corrected a problem when "An internal error has occurred" was thrown on pages listing sentences in Kirundi, Yiddish, Luxembourgish, and maybe other languages. Thanks to drinii and Luiaard for reporting the issue, and AndiPersti for fixing it.

※ TRANG did some tuning inside the code. We won't see a difference in our experience this time, but anyway, thanks to her for the work.

※ AndiPersti provided some optimization to the code, reducing the number of queries needed for some database access as well as their complexity. Thanks to him for the work.

※ Added a check to prevent errors in the "Latest contributions" page in a fresh developer environment. Thanks to AlanF_US for reporting and danail-georgiev (on GitHub) for the implementation.

※ sharptoothed provided his usual Stats & Graphs. Have a look!

※ sharptoothed also provided a new visualization of Tatoeba as graphs. That's quite something!

※ TRANG opened a discussion about renaming the "collection" feature and what would be a good name. If you haven't yet, give your opinion :)

※ CK provided a page to select sentences using English verbs.

※ Pandaa started a thread concerning new users. How to welcome them and help them contributing, among other things.

※ gillux performed a new UX test and gave his feedback. If you feel like performing your own on some new users, don't hesitate :)

※ TRANG announced that gillux will work once again as official staff of Tatoeba for the next two months and later again this year. Let's hope for some good features and code improvement :)

※ bandeirante asked what people think about sentences that are said to be impossible to translate.

※ Requested by shekitten, Old Spanish was added to Tatoeba. You can check some information about Old Spanish language on this wikipedia page

※ Requested by lovermann, Mingrelian was added to Tatoeba. You can check some information about Mingrelian language on this wikipedia page

※ Requested by soliloquist, Chagatai was added to Tatoeba. You can check some information about Chagatai language on this wikipegia page

Thanks to sabretou, soliloquist, and Ricardo14 for taking care of these requests.
