Superprotect letter update
Along with more hundreds of others, you recently signed Letter to Wikimedia Foundation: Superprotect and Media Viewer, which I wrote.
Today, we have 562 signatures here on Meta, and another 61 on change.org, for a total of 623 signatures. Volunteers have fully translated it into 16 languages, and begun other translations. This far exceeds my most optimistic hopes about how many might sign the letter -- I would have been pleased to gain 200 siguatures -- but new signatures continue to come.
I believe this is a significant moment for Wikimedia and Wikipedia. Very rarely have I seen large numbers of people from multiple language and project communities speak with a unified voice. As I understand it, we are unified in a desire for the Wikimedia Foundation to respect -- in actions, in addition to words -- the will of the community who has built the Wikimedia projects for the benefit of all humanity. I strongly believe it is possible to innovate and improve our software tools, together with the Wikimedia Foundation. But substantial changes are necessary in order for us to work together smoothly and productively. I believe this letter identifies important actions that will strongly support those changes.
Have you been discussing these issues in your local community? If so, I think we would all appreciate an update (on the letter's talk page) about how those discussions have gone, and what people are saying. If not, please be bold and start a discussoin on your Village Pump, or in any other venue your project uses -- and then leave a summary of what kind of response you get on the letter's talk page.
Finally, what do you think is the right time, and the right way, to deliver this letter? We could set a date, or establish a threshold of signatures. I have some ideas, but am open to suggestions.

Global CSS/JS migration
Hello Béria. You have a global.js page which contains your global scripts for all wikis. Since August 19th, your global.js and global.css pages are loaded automatically on all wikis (see announcement). Since you already load your Meta common.js yourself on many wikis (see example), you may experience script errors or issues like tools being added twice. I can fix that for you by merging your local scripts and styles into your global pages, and deleting the local pages with synchbot. Do you want me to do that? —Pathoschild 18:26, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
É por essas e várias outras
Beria e He7d3r, é por este tipo de atitude que tendo a não acreditar muito na recuperação da usuária. Às vezes fico na dúvida se ela tá de zoação com a gente. As traduções que ela fez poderiam ser lidas com graça em local apropriado. Att.—Teles «Talk to me ˱C L @ S˲» 22:27, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

I will be sending out an orientation email to new members this coming week, so please keep an eye out!
Hi! I'm coming here from a discussion on the English Wikipedia, in which it was noted that it's very hard to close the Picture of the Year banner in its current state. The blue "Close" link (which is only appearing as a fallback, since the image the link should be pointing to is missing) is nearly invisible against the blue background. Would it be possible to edit the code for the ad so that the link is more visible? For instance, it could have a background color set (e.g. white at 50% alpha or something).

Another issue about "POTY_2014_R1" campaign
