Domains for wiki codes[edit]

Hey User:Lea Lacroix (WMDE), User:Pigsonthewing and User:Jc86035 . Given that it has been discussed a lot before I want to mention a solution for issue of wiki domains. Apparently WMF owns .wiki gTLD which means you can have things like which is shorter than I got the idea from phab:T88873#1691739 (and things like phab:T167060).I don't know how feasible it is but I think it's a way better venue for you to try instead of using Wikimedia URL shortener.

@Ladsgroup: Thank you. So how are those created? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:49, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
I don't know, I recommand talking to the people who made those comments. Amir (talk) 13:12, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
We're not considering other top level domains at this time due to the overhead with managing TLS certificates. Also the inevitable argument of which English project should get, etc. Legoktm (talk) 11:54, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

How stable are the Shortener links likely to be?[edit]

How stable are the Shortener links likely to be? --Molgreen 17:56, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

They are pretty stable. Once made, they won't change. Only in certain cases like private information breach, it will be deleted by stewards. Amir (talk) 18:07, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Could a field be provided in the description (of commons files)?[edit]

It really depends on what commonswiki community decide, I don't think this place is the right place to discuss it. Amir (talk) 18:08, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
re: "the right place to discuss it" - please note user came here after being told on Phabricator that is also not the right place to discuss it. Mutante (talk) 22:05, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

Very long Wikidata URLs seem not to work[edit]

Very long WikiData URLs are returning the output: [object Object]. URL below in collapsed template. Is this a simple fix or something difficult? T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 04:18, 24 May 2019 (UTC)
