DISCLAIMER: The Wikimedia Foundation assumes no responsibility or liability for any posts aggregated on Planet Wikimedia. Blog aggregation is a computer-controlled process.

Request a new language

Planet Wikimedia is a weblog aggregator operated by the Wikimedia Foundation, to bring together on-topic posts about wikis from Wikimedia community members. If you run a blog, and you want to be included, you need to explicitly opt-in (see below).

What does it do?

Planet Wikimedia fetches RSS feeds every hour from selected Wikimedians who blog and aggregates the content of on-topic posts at <http://en.planet.wikimedia.org/> (and other language subdomains).

See also wikitech:Planet.wikimedia.org for more technical details.

Who and what can be included?

Please post on the discussion page if you feel that a particular blogger's posts are causing the signal-to-noise ratio to decrease.

Planet Wikimedia is a blog aggregation feed that updates hourly.

Scope

The Planet Wikimedia is a weblog aggregator operated by the Wikimedia Foundation, to bring together on-topic posts about Wikimedia projects, other wiki sites, the free culture movement, the "wisdom of crowds", etc. -- all from Wikimedia community members. Bloggers may "opt-in" to the blog aggregator, upon review and continued approval from the Wikimedia Meta community.

Purpose

RSS blog feeds present a convenient, efficient way for Internet denizens to keep informed about a thematic category, in a "one-stop-shopping" sort of way. The Planet Wikimedia seeks to keep users apprised of what Wikimedia-related bloggers are communicating currently. Just as a "news clipping" service might keep an enterprise informed about what the outside media world is saying about them, this service will keep those interested in Wikimedia informed about what the outside blogger world is saying about Wikimedia and related endeavors.

Items desired

  • Technical items - New ideas related to the MediaWiki software, opinions and suggestions relating to current technical implementations on local projects, the software itself, and Wikimedia.
  • Constructive criticism - Thoughtful analysis of things that are "wrong" about Wikimedia, and suggestions for improvement.
  • Praise - Feel-good or human interest stories about "success" around Wikimedia.

Things to avoid

  • Violating the copyrights of others, for example, reproducing something on your blog without permission.
  • Frequent offtopic posts.

How do I get in?

In order to be included, your RSS feed must either be filtered to on-topic posts (e.g. by tagging all relevant posts with "wikimedia" and providing a feed to this tag), or your blog must be almost exclusively focused on this topic. The very occasional off-topic post is permitted, but given that Planet Wikimedia is intended to scale to hundreds of blogs, please exercise appropriate self-restraint.

Common blogging engines like Wordpress and Blogger support label-specific feeds. In both cases, these are not obvious. For Wordpress, the feed URL is something like <http://example.com/blog/?cat=9&feed=rss2> or <http://example.com/blog/category/wiki/feed>. For Blogger, see this help entry. If you specify the URL of your blog, and make sure to add the category/tag/label "wiki" to your posts, we will help you to try to figure out whether a category-specific feed exists for your blog.

Blogs can be listed under your real name, your user name (which will be prefixed with "User:" in the list of authors), or both, e.g. Alan Smithee (Dogmaster3000). Please indicate your preference; if you indicate none, only the real name (if available) will be used. For group blogs the blog title will be used.

In the spirit of Wikimedia's commitment to free content, we encourage you to consider putting your blog content under a free license. In the spirit of Wikimedia's commitment to an unnecessary inflation of userboxes, you can also add a Planet Userbox to your userpage. ;-)


Requests for inclusion

To be included in the planet, simply list your blog below, together with a feed URL (preferably to a filtered feed), and your signature. If you want to display a different name for your blog than the default (e.g. your Wikipedia username), please indicate that here as well. Any developer with access to the Git server (path: operations/puppet/templates/planet/en_config.erb) can suggest the addition of your feed, and one of the roots can approve that change.

    I moved the requests back because there's no clear schedule for the new planet and for instance Wiki Loves Monuments is ending soon (we've already wasted half month). Someone with SVN access please commit the changes to the current planet. --Nemo 08:46, 15 September 2012 (UTC)
    Sadly I couldn't (despite trying multiple times) ever get SVN un locked because it was always supposed to be done soon :-/ the good side of that is that it is now done and switched to the new version (and git) the bad news is that it massively delayed the addition of everything here.
