Why live interpretation only in Hindi?[edit]

Thank you for leaving a message on my Talk page re Board elections. May I know why only Hindi interpretation is provided? Will it be available in Tamil? I think Wikimedia should refrain from such language imposition to such a large and diverse community! --செல்வா (talk) 17:31, 23 July 2021 (UTC)Reply

@செல்வா: Hi, thanks for your message. WMF or the facilitation doesn't mean to impose any language on the community, and we understand the diversity of the community. As Hindi is mostly understood by the majority of Northern India, we considered it, and Bangla because it is spoken both in West Bengal and also Bangladesh, considering the event is for South Asia. However, you are right about Tamil, and I am working on getting live interpretation for Tamil as well. I will confirm with you once I have an update.

@செல்வா: It is confirmed! We will provide live interpretation in Tamil as well. I just updated the event page. KCVelaga (WMF) (talk) 09:35, 24 July 2021 (UTC)Reply
Thank you very much! --செல்வா (talk) 18:26, 24 July 2021 (UTC)Reply

Community insight[edit]

I got an e-mail from Tanja Andic and you in Hindi but since the translation she/you used was poor and not understandable, I am typing my request here: I have to complain that the editors on Hindi Wikipedia are adding unsourced sentences (and the admins are not doing anything about it), please do something about it. Please also explain what that e-mail was about in English (like I said, the Hindi translation she/you used was poor).-BitaKarate1 (talk) 06:08, 16 June 2022 (UTC)Reply

Me to! Got something, but not a mail or spams in my mailbox, only here a text from mail. Could you reply, send a same letter? THX Hitachi-Hu (talk) 22:08, 18 June 2022 (UTC)Reply

Moderator Tools newsletter - Issue #1[edit]

Welcome to the inaugural Moderator Tools newsletter! We’ll aim to publish new issues whenever we have big new updates about the projects we’re working on.


PageTriage NewPagesFeed - October 2023

We’ve now wrapped up our work to support the English Wikipedia’s New Pages Patrol community by tackling some major technical debt in the PageTriage extension. The final project update gives an overview of all the work that we did over the past 6 months.


We’re currently working on a project called Automoderator, which will enable communities to automatically revert bad edits based on community-defined settings. We’re looking for input and feedback on our plans so far, and have a number of questions on topics we need patrollers and administrators to help us understand better. In addition to the overview and questions on the main project page, we now have two sub-pages with more specific information:

Automoderator - model testing tool screenshot
  • If you want to investigate Automoderator’s accuracy rate and check out how it would behave in practice, we’ve set up a testing process with data and scores so you can help us find new patterns we can take into consideration before Automoderator is deployed.
  • The measurement plan is the first draft of our plan to measure whether Automoderator is achieving its goals and not having negative consequences. Want to propose some data for us to capture to help evaluate this project? This is the place to go!


Our team has also been working to ensure that software we’re responsible for is updated to support temporary accounts. We’ve made changes to PageTriage, Nuke, and The Wikipedia Library.

Although we have active engineering projects ongoing, we're always happy to chat about your community's content moderation tool needs - feel free to get in contact at Talk:Moderator Tools.
