CfP WikiConference Yerevan 2013[edit]

Hi, can we add here this: Wikimedia Armenia announces Call for Participation for WikiConference Yerevan 2013 or isn't this the right place? --vacio 12:55, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

Setup to use mw:Extension:Translate?[edit]

Should this template be setup to use mw:Extension:Translate rather than the current setup of code based translations? --Varnent (talk)(COI) 00:09, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Temporary stop to all editing for server maintenance[edit]

Should information about Tech/Server switch 2016 be listed on the front page? Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:29, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

I added it. --Lsanabria (talk) 21:20, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

User Interaction Consultation[edit]

This mediawiki link seems interesting, we add also MediaWiki link on this section, and they need good and competent ideas. IMHO we should add it. What do you think?--Alexmar983 (talk) 06:01, 29 March 2016 (UTC)

@Alexmar983: Done! --Lsanabria (talk) 03:54, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
Thank you Lsanabria--Alexmar983 (talk) 04:29, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
My pleasure. --Lsanabria (talk) 05:06, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Wikistats 2.0 content and activity reports[edit]

This is also quite important mw:Analytics/Wikistats/DumpReports/Future per report. According to the webpage of Erik Zachte, this is the survey which contains a list of available reports. User are welcome to state their preferences about which Wikistats content and activity reports (aka dump reports) they would prefer to see continued in a new form (probably with improvements).

Could we add it?--Alexmar983 (talk) 12:56, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

@Alexmar983: Sure. Don't see any reason why not. I left a quick question on the talk page in MediaWiki. Regards, Lsanabria (talk) 19:11, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

Help:VisualEditor/Community Taskforce[edit]

I'd like to add a link to this page, with the mediawiki logo next to it. (Actually, if someone would be so nice to add it already, that'd be super rad.) Thanks! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 10:56, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

@Elitre (WMF): Done. Let me know if you would like to change the wording. Lsanabria (talk) 12:28, 30 June 2016 (UTC)
Love it. Thank you very much :) --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 12:40, 30 June 2016 (UTC)

Editing outages on 19 April and 3 May 2017[edit]

Tech/Server switch 2017 has been scheduled for Wednesday, 19 April and Wednesday, 3 May. The time of day has not been finalized, but it will probably be starting at 14:00 UTC (my second guess is 15:00 UTC). Could someone add this to the page? (Ping me with any questions.) Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 21:04, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

@JB82, Courcelles, and Lsanabria: Also, don't you think that Strategy/Wikimedia movement/2017 should be listed here? Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 19:04, 29 March 2017 (UTC)
I have just added the Server switch. -- Reise Reise (talk) 13:12, 31 March 2017 (UTC)
@Whatamidoing (WMF): I added the Strategy/Wikimedia movement/2017 announcement. I put today's date for the lack of a better one since it started several weeks ago. Regards, Lsanabria (talk) 05:04, 1 April 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, both of you. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 05:55, 3 April 2017 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: done, thanks.--Dario (WMF) (talk) 00:40, 21 November 2018 (UTC)


Das ist ein Scherz oder? Außer dem Eingangstext ist quasi nichts deutsch. Nichtmal das Datum, welches ja vermutlich automatisch gesetzt wird ist deutsch. Ich hätte ja fast was übersetzt. Aber als Normalsterblicher bin ich an der Technik gescheitert. Bitte ändert den Einleitungssatz: "Welcome to Meta-Wiki, the global english speaking community site for the Wikimedia Foundation's projects." (Das es das zumindest teilweise in anderen Sprachen gibt muss man auch erstmal rausfinden. Die meisten Websites mit Übersetzungen die ich kenne machen das oben rechts gut sichtbar. Bei WMF muss man erstmal ein bischen scrollen. Dabei aber nicht auf die Idee kommen, das die Sprache links zu ändern wäre; da kommt man ganz woanders hin. Bei der Nutzerfreundlichkeit ist noch sehr viel Luft nach oben. ......Sicherlich Post 18:18, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

clean up the page[edit]

Hi. The events in the current list are months old at the moment. I could remove them, but I'd like to know if there is an archive page. I added information sometimes, but never removed it.--Alexmar983 (talk) 19:39, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
