Attention visitors!
THIS MEANS YOU! READ THIS!

This site is for documentation and discussion on Wikimedia projects and on MediaWiki software.

If you are trying to add a page to your company's internal wiki site, you're in the wrong place. Just hit "back" in your browser until you find yourself back home.

OFFTOPIC PAGES WILL BE DELETED. THIS IS NOT YOUR TEST WIKI.
IF YOU HAVE DOUBTS, DO ASK FOR HELP AT BABEL.

REMARK: Your uploaded file will not be shared with other projects.

You can also upload files under a free license (no fair use!) to the Wikimedia Commons, a shared repository of content which can be used on all Wikimedia projects in all languages. Uploading your files to Commons is highly recommended.

Please follow these guidelines when uploading files to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki:

  • Provide detailed information on the source of the file in the text box; this will automatically be copied to the file's description page.
  • Specify the license of the file by adding the appropriate tag(s), e.g. {{GFDL}}, {{PD}}, etc. See Image copyright tags for more tags.
  • Insert the file or image in relevant articles using the syntax [[File:File.jpg|thumb|Caption]], and other media with [[Media:File.ogg]]. See Help:Images and other uploaded files for further instructions.
  • Use a descriptive filename (e.g. "Eiffel_Tower_Paris_daylight.jpg") to prevent conflicts with existing files.

See Special:Filelist for a list of already uploaded files.

By uploading a file here to which you hold the copyright, you agree to license it under the terms of the
GNU Free Documentation License.

If you do not want to use the GFDL, you must upload your files to the Wikimedia Commons.

ATTENTION!

Please note that files without information about source, authorship and license, or non-free files, will be deleted.

This is not your test wiki!
