you're welcome. Also, if you have some details about this part "I noticed it too late so 'Users Total' counters' data in 'User Activity' and 'Contributors' charts for 2018-09-08 and 2018-09-15 has been lost. Sorry guys. :-(", I'll add them to the bug report

as always, thanks for your stats :)

about the issue you reported about the 'users.csv' file, I opened a ticket on the bug tracker for this: https://github.com/Tatoeba/tatoeba2/issues/1674

@Thanuir multiple translations are allowed, since, as you said, a single sentence in a given language can be translated in different ways in another language. A quick hack I do when adding multiple translations is simply to copy and paste the first translation, and then you'll just have to modify a single word before submitting the new translation.

As I suggested in the ticket (https://github.com/Tatoeba/tatoeba2/issues/1651):

Currently, with this new dropdown menu, when a user deletes the default option in the search's language, he/she sees the languages he/she chose in his/her profile and then every other language. My suggestion is: maybe the dropdown, at least for registered users, should be limited to the languages that a user chose in his/her profile when no specific language is selected, since it's likely that this user would stick only to such languages when searching for sentences, and, for all the other languages, he/she would have to type them manually to get them in the dropdown menu, since they're less likely to be used for custom searches

Edit = in any case, it works fine for me. I tried it on an Amazon Fire and Ubuntu

I'm pretty sure that audio files aren't downloadable. Not everyone has decided to let their audio files to be reused outside of Tatoeba, I think, so they're not downloadable

"I don’t like the idea of restraining or changing the way I write sentences just because maybe, a non-native speaker will not understand."

+1.
Here tagging is important, at least for me, to categorize real and natural sentences.
Personally, I'm tagging sentences according to their tense, so anyone who is interested can use it as a way to search for sentences they want to reuse on a given tense (whatever the purpose might be, from learning to teaching). Also, sometimes I also tag sentences as "vulgar" whenever there are swear words, so that people, when seeing this tag, can know that some sentences might not be appropriate in some situations (a quick example: you're in a courthouse attending a trial, and it's not advisable to start swearing). I also added some "proverb" and "idiom"/"idiomatic expression" tags, so that people can see they don't have to translate such sentence in a literal meaning (I added "literal" tags to sentences that were translated with a literal meaning).

yes, in such cases you pointed out the exact duplicate is considered as the already existing sentence, so you successfully linked C and B.

Horus works when you add, for example, "Hello." and "Helo." as translations of two different sentences (like, for example, "Hello." to "Ciao." and "Helo." to "Salut."). The system recognizes the two sentences as completely different (technically they are), but, when you correct "Helo." and change it into "Hello.", this becomes an exact duplicate, so Horus, when scanning the database, sees the two duplicates, and then deletes one of the two, and links it to the other sentence where the other duplicate was linked to. So, if the modified "Helo." gets deleted by Horus, you'll see that the sentence "Hello." (which was like this from the beginning) has been linked also to "Salut.", along with the original link you created for it to "Ciao.".

I hope this cleared things a little bit :)

First of all, welcome to Tatoeba :)

In case of your option 2, duplicates are automatically merged, so here's what could happen:

first case: if you add a translation and the sentence already exists, the existing sentence is linked to the new sentence you wanted to translate, so no duplicates are actually added, you simply link an existing sentence to another sentence that matches it.

second case: you add a new translation and you don't notice it's already there as a translation of another sentence, but you make a typo or there's the wrong flag, and then you correct your mistake. In this case, there's an automated script (this one: https://tatoeba.org/ita/user/profile/Horus) that automatically merges the exact duplicates, linking just one sentence (I think generally the oldest one) to any sentence where the exact duplicates are added. In this way there's already a script taking care of this without manual work.

Alternatively, you could post a comment on a sentence you want to link to another sentence (or even to more than one sentence), and someone (myself included) will perform the linking you requested, simply add the numbers of the sentences you want to have linked. For example: if you want any sentence to be linked to this sentence: https://tatoeba.org/ita/sentences/show/5552276, use #5552276 as a reference, as it creates a shorter (and more practical, imho) link to the sentence.

I hope everything is clear :)
