Edits needed on foundation wiki[edit]

Hi. At, the first 3 external links lead to pages that were moved and then deleted. The content was merged to mw:Help:Extension:Kartographer, which is already linked, so the only thing that is needed is removing the dead links. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 07:10, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

Also the 'Maps/Wikimedia Maps/2015-2017/Tile server implementation' link is to a page that doesn't exist --DannyS712 (talk) 07:33, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Thank you - I will ping the folks responsible for that content and ask for an update. Thanks! --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 17:08, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
@GVarnum-WMF: any update? --DannyS712 (talk) 19:37, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

Terms of Use in Russian[edit]

There is a sentence in the Russian translation of Terms of Use: "необходимые для поддержания и развития многоязычных вики-проектов и их отдельных разделов (перечисленных здесь) и прочих начинаний, служащих этой миссии." The link from 'здесь' (Russian for 'here') doesn't work: it's a red link. ParticipantOfTheEncyclopedia (talk) 17:14, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

Fixed. --Kaganer (talk) 23:35, 6 July 2020 (UTC)

wmf:Terms of Use/Phabricator[edit]

“other material […], to which you hold the copyright”. The relative clause here is defining and should not be separated with a comma. 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 16:34, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

Sorry, that comma closed the apposition starting with "or". 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 21:43, 3 August 2020 (UTC)

Redirect from donation[edit]

FYI I arrived at the page from a notice inserted into an English Wikipedia article which read "Last chance: Please don't scroll away". The correct link should ostensibly be to the redirected page but to update it I have no idea where the notice actually exists. DAVilla (talk) 15:22, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

account for wiki[edit]

Need to know how to get account for foundation governance wiki as I cannot edit and need to fix a typo in a article on foundation governance wiki —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2600:8805:bc82:2300:ed63:633c:6793:9fc8 (talk) 10:39, 18 January 2020 (UTC)

What is the typo that you would like fixed? --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 18:02, 8 June 2020 (UTC)

very helpful[edit]

I think this website is very helpful to knowing more information about the Wikimedia Foundation

--PutriAmalia1991 (talk) 13:09, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

I wish I would know more about this website Xelisilo Vuyokazi (talk) 19:10, 24 April 2020 (UTC)

Map terms of use: User agent policy impossible to comply with in the browser[edit]

@DTankersley (WMF): The Wikimedia map tile server sets this header: access-control-allow-headers: accept, x-requested-with, content-type. But the Map terms of use require setting the User-Agent header, which that CORS header doesn't allow. Additionally, browser JS can't set the User-Agent header at all. I think Api-User-Agent should be added to that CORS header, and the policy should require either User-Agent or Api-User-Agent be set. Thanks! --SixTwoEight (talk) 16:01, 18 March 2020 (UTC)

@SixTwoEight: Thanks for raising it, I'm moving this discussion to so this can be investigated and actionized. Please let me know if you have any questions. --MSantos (WMF) (talk) 14:28, 30 March 2020 (UTC)

foundation:Wikimedia official marks/Word mark creation#Alternative type faces[edit]

For the time being it mentions: "Chinese: AR PL UMing", well, there's an ongoing discussion on zhwiki: zh:Wikipedia:互助客栈/其他#提议将简体维基百科等的_logotype_换成思源宋体 to request changing it to use Source Han Serif (思源宋体/思源宋體) (d:Q29167853), another SIL OFL licensed CJK font powered by Adobe and Google, maybe we should also alter texts of this foundationwiki page? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 03:31, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

@Liuxinyu970226: Has there been resolution on the request to change? If they do change it officially, we can update it, but if it's still being discussed, probably best to wait. --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 17:59, 8 June 2020 (UTC)
@GVarnum-WMF: FWIW, changing font of zh-hant counterpart has been approved by their community, but not yet for zh-hans. And for other sinophone users based Wikipedias, they're still discussing. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 12:56, 10 June 2020 (UTC)
@GVarnum-WMF: FYI: the change of zh-hans font is also approved but not configured on the cluster now. --Hamish 05:10, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

Re: Resolution:Board Statement on Community Health (2020)[edit]

I just read this resolution, & after wading thru all of the iterations of "Whereas", I expected to find an actual statement of, well, something, only to find that the Board resolved:

that the Board of Trustees hereby approves a new statement on community health.

So, what is this new statement on community health? The Board resolution apparently forgot to state what it is, or even providing a link to what they have approved. (I'll forego any snark about imprecise thinking: I'm honestly curious about what the Board says on the subject.) -- Llywrch (talk) 08:20, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

@Llywrch: The statement is available here: Wikimedia Foundation Board noticeboard/May 2020 - Board of Trustees on Healthy Community Culture, Inclusivity, and Safe Spaces and linked from the Board resolution under References (which is generally how they format links in their resolutions). I will mention idea of linking within the resolution text as well. --Gregory Varnum (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 17:57, 8 June 2020 (UTC)
Yes, linking it would be helpful. Thanks for the prompt reply. -- Llywrch (talk) 18:22, 8 June 2020 (UTC)

Resolution missing from list[edit]

wmf:Resolution:Appointing Kelly Battles to WMF Board is not listed on wmf:Resolutions; it should be added there. Unless it's known how this was missed, I'd recommend doing a scan over all resolutions to make sure that none are missing from the list. --Yair rand (talk) 05:48, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

donation problem[edit]

Wanted give some BTC anonymously , but it was not possible . My ID was asked :-(

Style issues in the "Friendly space policy" article[edit]

Friendly space policy has inconsistent and incorrect style; unspaced em dashes are used in some areas, while spaced hyphen-minuses are used in others. My suggestion to fix the page is to change both instances of "... at all venues and events - such as conferences, virtual events, and related social events - that this policy applies to ..." to "... at all venues and events—such as conferences, virtual events, and related social events—that this policy applies to ..." —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Swiftestcat (talk) 18:04, 25 September 2020
