I really can't edit the bulgarian wikipedia :-) I just see all caracters like "?". That is too difficult :-)
Wikipedia-wide information network
I am Anthere. I only speak french and english. I hope someone will be able to translate this, and I apologise if I did not put it in the right place :-)
I would like that information circulate better between wikipedias, so that all wikipedians can participate more, and keep its own identity at the same time.
For this reason, I recently set a page on meta, m: Goings-on.
Hopefull, at any time, this page could indicate the current discussions, polls, votes or general announcements. 3 pages were already locally created on the spanish, the french and the english wikipedia. A global one is now on meta.
Each local page is about general on-goings as well as local ones.
Meta page aims at being about global occurences.
The page is different from the announcement page. The announcement is more oriented toward external communication (such as number of pages, special adverstisement), while the on-goings aim at mentionning community events (such as a new feature poll, elections of board of trustees).
To compare both pages :
- annoucement page on meta : http://meta.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_News (this is rather for general and external announcements)
- goings-on page : http://meta.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goings-on (this is for community announcement). This page is still under construction.
It would be great that each wikipedia in time, set a similar page, so that information could flow more easily between wikipedia. If you do so, please do set the goings-on page locally, so that every wikipedians on *your* wikipedia can see it and participate to it, and please link it to the meta page.
For bigger wikipedia, it is also interesting to set a goings-on page to relieve the local village pump, often clogged with information request.
For small wikipedias, it makes sense to merge the goings-on in the village pump, perhaps by making a separate paragraph.
I am also looking for people who would agree to update the local goings-on in their language. Please, contact me at my talk page for any support, suggestion and feedback.
Thank you very much for your attention :-) Anthere
Hi! Can you please translate the election notice * into Bulgarian and Vietnamese and post it prominently on the Recent Changes page of those Wikipedias. Once you have done that, please let me know, and leave me a link where I can find it. Thanks. Danny 00:19, 6 May 2004 (UTC)
Bgbot is welcome on Wikipedia Maori
I look forward to seeing User Number 23 appearing on the "Recent Changes" list from time to time. It needs more variety of user. We have a number of "year" pages, which may help. Robin Patterson 01:44, 27 Sep 2004 (UTC)
Hi. I am an Administrator on en:. I am wondering if your bot is still active. Please let me know. Thank you. --AllyUnion 07:37, 2 September 2005 (UTC)
- No, it's currently inactive. --Borislav 15:05, 2 September 2005 (UTC)
I address you as the ambassador of your wikipedia. Please notice the above project.
This project, more than other projects, will benefit from inter-wiki cooperation. Can you post a message regarding this project at your wikipedia village pump.
Thanks for your help, APH from the English wiki
Dear Borislav, since you are an administrator on a wiki from which no user participated in this discussion, I'd like to make sure you are aware of some recent events which may alter what the Wikimedia Foundation lets you do on your wiki: Superprotect.
