Foundation-l list summary

Would anyone mind restarting this service to those of us who don't subscribe to the list? Foundation-l has many important discussions, and I believe it's important to keep the non-subscribing community updated. Thanks in advance. Thunderhead 21:15, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

I could try and help out a bit, though I would rather not do it alone. Would you be interested in doing it also? Greeves (talk contribs Wikipedia) 00:27, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
Will try :-) Thunderhead 00:35, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

100.000 articles in Catalan Wikipedia

Is here the place to announce that Catalan Wikipedia reached 100.000 articles? I've seen one announcement in the past saying that German Wikipedia reached 1.000 quality articles, so I think this might be the place... Thank you!--Xtv 22:16, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

No, this is not the place. The top of this page says: „Please keep milestones out of this area and put them on Wikimedia News. Thanks.“ Nevertheless, congratulations! --UV 14:17, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
Oh, I came here directly from the main page -> edit -> talk without seeing the main page of this template and therefore I hadn't read this line, sorry. However, I don't understand then why a couple of days ago there was this quality articles milestone from German Wikipedia, but anyway... thank you! :-) --Xtv 17:39, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Batch of 5 promoted together as 2,000th FA on Wikipedia

To be accurate, there was no one 2,000th featured article, but a set of five, see n:Wikinews interviews: The team behind the 2,000th featured Wikipedia article and also see this comment. Cirt 21:20, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Licensing update - logo used

Hi, CC is not a Wikimedia-project. I think it is better to change the logo used for announcing the licensing update back to wikimedia. Cheers --Marbot 08:16, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

you can edit. :-) Cbrown1023 talk 20:59, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Of course I may edit. The question is what others think of it. Cheers --Marbot 20:12, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
As there are no objections... I have just changed it. --Marbot 17:29, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
I had changed it to the share-alike icon, but it got reverted too. ViperSnake151 01:06, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

The templates probably have self explanatory usage. {{Month}} and {{Main Page/WM News/Code}} need to be updated if a new language code is added to the existing bunch. Currently the template has support for 12 languages. -- とある白い猫 chi? 01:10, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

Add item

Please add Logo for Wikimedia Strategic Planning wiki to the news list. Thanks. -- とある白い猫 chi? 02:40, 5 March 2012 (UTC)

I disagree with adding this vote to the Wikimedia News section of the meta main page, as it shouldn't be held on meta, but locally. Savhñ 20:26, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
Do you even know the point of the meta main page? The news section is almost entirely about news on other projects. -- とある白い猫 chi? 20:52, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
I agree with Savh. It is pointless for meta to host a vote for one sole wiki. Meta is for multiple wikis' coordination. --Aphaia (talk) 18:12, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
Strategy wiki involves every wiki, what are you talking about! -- とある白い猫 chi? 20:28, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
Declined, too trivial for the main page. Vote should likely be moved over to Strategy, as well. Courcelles (talk) 21:33, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

{{Announce Wikipedia|10|{{LangAutoSwitch|lang={{{lang|{{int:lang}}}}}
 |en=The Russian Wikipedia was [[wmru:Забастовка Википедии на русском языке|blacked out]] for 24 hours by community decision to draw attention to currently debating the legislation that would allow the government to blacklist web sites and enforce that blacklist, creating the real censorship of the Internet.
