Things about 2021 should be in 2021[edit]

Why don't create Tech/Server switch 2021 or some thing instead of just adding things here? The title would be misleading; And it's definitely not appropriate to just overwrite old archive with new content, right? —— Eric LiuTalk 06:17, 30 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

The plan is to rename the page and all sub pages to remove the date. To be done soon! Trizek (WMF) (talk) 14:20, 30 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
So is this rename/history preserving plan ongoing? It seems that no subpages had been created yet. —— Eric LiuTalk 07:57, 8 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
The page has already been renamed to be date-agnostic. We keep history of previous server switches in the page history itself. This way, we don't need to copy all the content at each switch and ask translators to redo the work at every event. Trizek (WMF) (talk) 14:18, 8 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Date (2021 switch back)[edit]

@Trizek (WMF): This newsletter states that the server switch will be on September 13, and thus there will be a code freeze that week (i.e. Sep 13–17). However, the train blocker task for next week (Sep 6–10) is closed as “declined”, while the the train blocker task for the week after (Sep 13–17) is open. Based on these tasks, I’d guess the server switch is next week, not the week after. So when will it happen? —Tacsipacsi (talk) 00:00, 1 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for your question, Tacsipacsi. The schedule set the priority for the server switch. I'm asking. Trizek (WMF) (talk) 11:22, 1 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Tacsipacsi, hopefully you spotted this change. I just updated the message accordingly. Thank you very much! Trizek (WMF) (talk) 16:18, 1 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Proper translated category[edit]

Should'nt it be like [[Category:Wikimedia Foundation technical notices{{#translation:}}]] instead of just not showing in translated version? —— Eric LiuTalk 08:01, 8 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
