Proposal[edit]

This is a project that gives room for all readers of all part sister wiki project to access and express what they wish to have on wiki,rate us, complain about what they don't like. They could also wish to register to wiki's which is also allowed. The email will be the sign in to this page. Many people will be there to answer their questions they could discuss about what they have learn and how wiki's contributed to human life. They will be for all nation's and all language. You can also add a new task to it.

Discussion[edit]

Sorry but this proposal is unclear to me—what are you actually proposing? If you're suggesting a place in which editors can propose potential new Wikimedia projects and new features for the Mediawiki software, that already exists and you're on it. If you're proposing a place for people to give feedback about individual WMF-run projects, it wouldn't make sense to have it at the meta (or Meta) level; if you have a concern or suggestion regarding (for example) German Wikiquote, it generally makes far more sense to discuss it at German Wikiquote where the people who are qualified to comment on the proposal are going to be found, and—equally importantly—where you're not going to waste the time of those people who aren't involved with German Wikiquote. (As a slight aside, this is Meta, not Wikipedia. Talk of "how wikipedia contributed to human life" is unlikely to be received positively here; there's already justifiable resentment at the manner in which Wikipedia regularly claims to speak for a movement of which it's just a single part.)

It is a forum where non-registered user could access to they will login by G-mail account not register or IP address they will be a space where does who wish to join any of our project could also join. They can create a club where they will discuss about what they have learn so far and discuss about how Wiki's has helped them so far. They can complain and rate us. It has to benefit. They can also propose thing if Wiki's wishes. You can remove or add a task if you wishes.Tbiw (talk) 13:54, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

@Tbiw: Existing Wikimedia wikis each already have many forums. For cross-wiki forums, there is metawiki already. For non-Wikimedia related forums there are many many websites out there already which offer forums. I don't understand which specific problem(s) this proposal is supposed to solve. --Malyacko (talk) 21:21, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

@Malyacko: You are user Malyacko you have register why can't you enter directly by an email which you will talk about things try to bring out a club where you read and discuss about what you have learnt complain and we will respond to the complaint. Then if they want to read they should type it will be given with different ways. The can tell you about what they don't like. Then if you want to join us there is a place you will join directly.Tbiw (talk) 10:56, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

@Tbiw: (Please use indentation for replies to keep threads threaded and readable.) I don't know what a "club" is, who "we" is, if your reply refers to my previous comment or is a meta-level comment about what you propose, and I have no idea what sentences like "if they want to read they should type it will be given with different ways" are supposed to mean, sorry... --Malyacko (talk) 20:51, 17 July 2020 (UTC)
I think I'm understanding this a little more clearly—is what you're proposing a pan-WMF version of English Wikipedia's Village Pump? If so, I can't see what the benefit would be to having a separate project for it, rather than hosting discussions relating to genuine pan-wiki issues on Meta, and fielding questions pertaining to individual wikis on those individual wikis. Those people who are likely to be in a position to respond to queries are already going to have the relevant noticeboards watchlisted; they're not likely to remember to check a small, stand-alone project. (We have enough difficulty even getting people to remember to occasionally check their watchlist on Meta.) I'm also unclear why you feel requiring an email address would be of any benefit, given that it would immediately exclude the sizeable proportion of editors who aren't comfortable disclosing identifying information or just don't want to be receiving wiki-related emails, and consequently make questions even less likely to be answered.Iridescent (talk) 14:03, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

@Iridescent: If they go in with IP instead of emails fine with that. I got your point you don't want their email to be revealed. They could login have a chat and discuss about book or article they have read from any of our project. They are more than users and they can convert themselves to user due to the space will be made for that. This proposal is a both users and readers. Advert on top Join wiki-forum(say out your mind,discuss and read) They will say out what they read discuss and read. Then there is a full sure capabilities of instantly turning to an editor. Register to improve the mistake on our sister Wiki's project. Is that not good meta.Tbiw (talk) 15:18, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

Malyacko sorry for those sentences and mistakes thanks for the correction.Tbiw (talk) 08:45, 18 July 2020 (UTC)

  • @Tbiw: So you are basically suggesting a customer service center? On one hand, it would be a great asset to the WMF, but on the other, it would be a plain waste. Creating a new wiki takes money and time, and creating one separately for such a purpose is futile. If you are suggesting a project within a website, it would seem a bit more rational. If you think i am not getting the view of te project, please expand the content. That one paragraph doesn't explain enough. Arep Ticous 14:26, 30 July 2020 (UTC)

Yeah you got it is a customer service center that my i said a forum for all.Tell is what you want tell us what you need then you might want to change this problem by joining us.Tbiw (talk) 12:13, 1 August 2020 (UTC)

  • @Tbiw: I don't think a customer service center would be best as a separate project. I first thought this was an idea for a Q&A which concerned me a little bit since I have been developing a project for a Q&A. Arep Ticous 11:53, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

If it within will have to first be an editor before you can ask questions. This forum is a forum of complain. Complain and volunteers will immediately reply within 24hrs time and if you think you can help out by joining us join us. Give me your within plan and let me see the details of it.Tbiw (talk) 16:37, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

  • @Tbiw: I would really appreciate it if you would ping me when replying. Now then... i understand this project, but there are a few similar projects going on like This , This , and this. Complaints would be a nice idea for some websites as an internal project, like a thing you can start withing WIkipedia rather than creating a completely separate project. But i really do not see a point in creating a complaint lodge when everything in the website is created by the public. There is a board of administrators but there are no certain leaders that would control all edits. Peharps suggestions for new policies, but scams would be very common.
