If this is supposed to be an international page, it really ought to avoid abbreviations and jargon like "VP, RfA, QP etc" which only fairly active editors on the English Wikipedia are likely to understand. Angela 19:51, 16 May 2004 (UTC)Reply

Mockup for a general overview list[edit]

Elian's Comments:

Elian's Questions:

  • which columns do you regard as superfluous?
  • which columns are missing?
Statistics is imho not important. And the "Press" only exists on very few, very big ones I think... TheK 00:18, 26 Jul 2004 (UTC)
This is definitely more editor-friendly than the Admin page, with its mysterious though space-saving jargons. A-giâu 01:55, 26 Jul 2004 (UTC)



I'm not sure if it is the right room...

When I put an interlanguage link on any pages of this projects, a link Bahasa Sunda will appear. I just want to inform that these appearance was wrong, since the "Sundanese language" means "Basa Sunda", and not "Bahasa Sunda". Can anybody change it? Thx, Kandar 10:15, 2 Mar 2005 (UTC)

I will take care. Regards Gangleri | Th | T 20:25, 2005 Apr 30 (UTC)

Splitting up into sections based on article count?[edit]

How many people actually keep track of article counts? Doesn't this make it harder to find a particular wiki? Why are only some wikis listed (those with an article count less than 500 are not)? Brianjd | Why restrict HTML? | 01:52, 2005 Mar 26 (UTC)

anomalies in the "Navigation" menue while selcting a different languages in Special:Preferences[edit]

From bugzilla:2030:

  • Halló!
  • Normaly (99%) I use the same interface as the languages of the wiki's.
  • I noticed that the numbers of items in the "Navigation" menue differs between the wikis:
  1. 5 items: lt:, ...
  2. 6 items: en:, he:, ...
  3. 7 items: et:, lv:, ro:, ...
  • If you change the user interface to another language then the une used for the wiki you maigth have the following anomalous situations:
a) if you look at lt: with the interface in Romanian language you will see 'more items then available: 7 not 5
b) if you look at ro: with the interface in Latvian language you will see 'less items then available: 5 not 7
c) Because lack of coordination you will follow a link which maight be "labeled" differntly, it maight have another content then you expect.


  • According to my opinion harmonising the wiki's would be the most suitable solution.
  • I have no idea about how to solve the problem "with software". Interlanguage links have improuved but there are still many conflicts regarding these pages as one can see. (ca:Portada maight be linked to en:Main Page, de:Hauptseite etc.)
  • P.S. Please follow and or contribute to the discussion about this issue at Talk:Wikimedia projects. Thanks in advance!


There are not Wikinews site in the list 20:45, 30 May 2005 (UTC)

Good point. I've started this section now, but it needs more languages and more links to complete it. Angela 06:31, 31 May 2005 (UTC)Reply


Wikisource has been split up onto languages and this table does not reflect that-- 14:08, 15 December 2005 (UTC)Reply


  • There should be project to evolve MediaWiki while ensuring the greatest accessibility.
  • The accessibility features that do exist should be collated for concerted implementation (for those for whom accessiblity is essential).

wiki by inception date[edit]

Do we have a table which lists projects by creation/inception date? John Vandenberg 00:02, 5 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

BUG in the links?[edit]

I clicked wikipedia from the links on this page using internet explorer 8 and got "the page is not valid" and this was in the nav bar.

It might be just this machine - but I thought I'd flag it up EdwardLane (talk) 17:25, 29 February 2012 (UTC)Reply

I had the same problem with wikipedia, wikiquote, wikibooks... links. Now fixed (I hope!) --FRacco (talk) 15:51, 15 July 2012 (UTC)Reply

We have Wikidata, but no Wikivoyage? Seems a little odd... Andrew Gray (talk) 13:13, 16 November 2012 (UTC)Reply

Yeah it is odd

Translation to German[edit]

Hello, can someone mark this page for translation? I could translate it into German, but I am not sure how to make an new language page and to link it right. If someone could tell me how to do it I would make it myself. --Lesendes Okapi (talk) 10:07, 11 January 2018 (UTC)Reply

Approval process for new wikis?[edit]

Hi all - not sure if this is the right place, but does there have to be some sort of approval process for the creation of a new wiki like this. I don's see anything at Wiki Project Med or talk page. Casliber (talk) 01:47, 13 August 2020 (UTC)Reply

@Casliber: If you want to create a new language edition of an existing project, there is a process for that. If you want to propose an entirely new sister project, there is no single, reliable process. Which did you have in mind? —Justin (koavf)TCM 02:19, 13 August 2020 (UTC)Reply
Hi Justin, it was more that the mdwiki at [2] appears to be official yet I can't see any discussion proposing it (no I don't want to set one up :)) Casliber (talk) 05:19, 13 August 2020 (UTC)Reply
My bad, as written here, it is totally independent from the WMF. Sorry for raising. Casliber (talk) 05:42, 13 August 2020 (UTC)Reply
@Casliber: Yes, Mdwiki is an independent project but, to be clear, Wikivoyage was also an independent project that was adopted by the WMF. So if the community there were sufficiently motivated, they could propose adoption. Again, that's a total one-off and there's no clear process for this in the past 20 years but it could happen. —Justin (koavf)TCM 06:01, 13 August 2020 (UTC)Reply

I have translated the page into Spanish[edit]

I came to this page from a Spanish Wikipedia link, I saw that it was half translated and I decided to collaborate. I hope it is helpful for Spanish speakers. Also for the rest, since it will be easier, since there are only some parts to translate and correct. 14:13, 10 July 2021 (UTC) (this comment is transalated with google transalte because I have medium english knowledge)Reply

And this? [3], i edit because the bot editions... although I don't care much. Ok, at least it is as it should be. 14:19, 10 July 2021 (UTC)Reply
