2016 Community Wishlist Survey
You’re getting this message because you participated in the 2015 Community Wishlist Survey and we want to make sure you don't miss it this year – or at least can make the conscious choice to ignore if it you want to. The 2015 survey decided what the Community Tech team should work on during 2016. It was also the focus of Wikimedia hackathons and work by other developers. You can see the status of wishes from the 2015 wishlist at 2015 Community Wishlist Survey/Results.
The 2016 Community Wishlist Survey is now open for wishes. You can create proposals until November 20. You will be able to vote on which wishes you think are best or most important between November 28 and December 12. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 11:17, 14 November 2016 (UTC)
There has been a request to inform all who voted in the RfC about interlinking accounts involved with paid editing about the following adjustment in the "statement of issue" on Sept 18th, 2017.
It was clarified that this effort will help deal not only with impersonation of specific Wikipedians but also claims of being in good standing made by those who are not. Thanks. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 19:59, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
- Thank you, Doc James. Makes my support even stronger than it already was. Disclosure of real name and/or name of/at paying company an obligation to avoid impersonation and possibility to make possible confusion with an existing other Wikipedian who does not get paid for her/his contribution by a third party and/or WMF/local chapter/whatever...

Groningse Wikipedia and Wiktionary
Can you read and write Gronings? As I saw that you were interested in contributing to Groninger Wikipedia articles, so why not join the Low-Saxon Wikipedia or the Low-Saxon Wiktionary? I am planning on joining after I’ve imported a few books to the English Wikisource and Gronings is quite an interesting language to write. Though I speak Gronings my largest issue is with the divergent and non-standard forms of spelling, if you speak Cityspeak (Stads) or Westwoods (Westerwolders) you could probably align your spelling more with that of other Low-Saxon dialects, but there’s this handy guide for writing Gronings as we all can speak it, but people very rarely write it. Just check those Wikimedia projects out if you’re interested, is there a Groninger version of OmegaWiki?
Did you know that the Low-Saxon version of Wikipedia has their own flag? (in Gronings) --Donald Trung (Talk 🤳🏻) (My global lock 🔒) (My global unlock 🔓) 15:17, 18 December 2017 (UTC)
