A Related Effort[edit]

I'm one of the co-founders of a wiki-based site for crowd-sourcing fact checks, and I wonder if the site would be of interest to some the editors here at Wikipedia. The site,, allows anyone to create fact checks of public misinformation, as well as edit and improve existing fact checks already on the site. As with Wikipedia, the site policy requires reliable references, so users can verify the fact checks for themselves, and users can collaborate to improve the fact checks over time. The site is still currently in beta.

If you're interested in contributing content to the site, feel free to follow the link ( and add a fact check or edit one of the in-progress fact checks. Also, any feedback is welcome, or we can be reached at if you'd rather offer feedback over email (replace AT with @).

Please let us no if this isn't an appropriate forum to post this, or if there's some where else it would make more sense to put it. Kasense-info (talk) 20:23, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

Wikipetitions Proposal[edit]

I would love to see suggestions, feedback, and questions related to my proposed Wikimedia project, called Wikipetitions. I would also like for anybody who is interested in the project to edit your name into the People Interested.

This would be a great start for better ways to interact with and communicate with our respective countries lawmakers(when/where permitted), and this kind of collaboration would help clarify the issue at hand!

Please, help my project get started and please help make it shine as a star/top Wiki project!—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kyjds (talk)

Kartographer extension[edit]

It would be really useful to have the Kartographer extension to add maps on pages about events. For example, for the Wikiconvention, to have a page with a map of hotels nearby. -Ash Crow (talk) 20:43, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Support. The extension is indeed a good fit for events, and a lot of global, crosswiki or country based events use meta to publish information.
Contributors willing to get information about events will benefit from a map, so yes, that's a good idea.
Disclaimer. This opinion is given as a meta user, and is independent of my opinion when triaging site requests or as a deployment volunteer.

Support. Would really help to organize events. --Harmonia Amanda (talk) 07:41, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Err ... This extension is already active (special:version).12:41, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

English Wikipedia as a source[edit]

Hello.Many of Wikipedia articles in several languages Consider English Wikipedia a source.Is this acceptable or is it better to remove these sources by a global bot?Thank you --ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 09:29, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia itself can not be a reliable source: see en:WP:CIRCULAR. Ruslik (talk) 19:37, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
