Tech News[edit]

As the year, at least according to the calendar used by Tech News, is drawing to end, I wanted to say thanks for the Tech News translations – both as a person writing Tech News and a Wikimedia editor who cares about the movement. It’s difficult enough to keep track of what’s happening if one speaks English. I’m happy there’s one place to get a weekly update of what’s happening if one doesn’t. The one true international language is translation. Thank you.

And, of course, for all your contributions to the newsletter, always making it a bit better and easier to translate. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 13:49, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

You are welcome. I must also thank you for taking care of preparing it, the newsletter is indeed very important. Matěj Suchánek (talk) 14:14, 16 December 2015 (UTC)


Thank you very much for notifying me about the unsigned comment on Vituzzu voting page! I signed it again and it's all OK now. Indeed very kind of you, thanks again. --Ttzavaras (talk) 17:37, 20 February 2016 (UTC)

Should FuzzyBot remove all potentially outdated translations?[edit]

Hello, thanks for adding multiple new translations in your language here at Meta-Wiki in recent years. Please join the discussion with your opinion: Should FuzzyBot automatically remove all potentially outdated translations?. Nemo (talk) 12:01, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

Plagiarism detection[edit]

Hi! You voted for improving plagiarism detection as an important suggestions in the community wishlist survey last year. I'm pinging people who showed interest in that task to tell them we have some suggestions for how things could look, if you'd like to glance at them and give us some feedback. They're available here: phab:T120435#2266283. It's easiest if comments are left in Phabricator, since that's where much of the development is happening, but they can be left on Meta too, of course. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 17:25, 13 May 2016 (UTC)


Thanks for reminding me that May has, in fact, 31 days. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 00:40, 28 May 2016 (UTC)

How to load gadgets with dependencies through global.js?[edit]

Hi. Can you help out a non-hacker. I can see how we add dependencies for a gadget, though if one uses the gadget directly from one's javacript files, I cannot work out how to apply the dependencies and the help pages don't help. To quote your cited request for change, one would load it directly by


mw:ResourceLoader/Migration_guide_(users) says to use mw.loader.using then talks about wrapping functions, etc. which loses me. Can you describe the simple way that one would combine "mw.loader.using" with utilisation of "mw.loader.load" style syntax.

Thanks for any help.  — billinghurst sDrewth 14:45, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi. Of course I will help you. This is basically mw:ResourceLoader/Migration guide (users)#In practice:
mw.loader.using( [ 'mediawiki.util' ], function () {

    mw.loader.load( '//' );

} );
The function (or closure) is executed as soon as the dependecy is ready. I believe this is possible as well:
mw.loader.using( [ 'mediawiki.util' ] )
.done( function () {
    mw.loader.load( '//' );
} );
Matěj Suchánek (talk) 15:02, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
Kewl thanks, and presumably I can cluster each gadget that has the dependency inside the function.  — billinghurst sDrewth 15:19, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

Wikidata notifications[edit]

Hey, I see you put the Wikidata notifications for created articles back into the issue to be distributed on Monday. Just to explain why I thought/think it fit better next week, here's my reasoning: We announced it in Tech/News/2017/19 a couple of weeks ago, including all dates through May. If we do it next week, we'll have a) announced it once when it started happening and b) the week when all the wikis got it. You think this week is better?

(Also: Very long issue this week. I think more people will pay attention to it, or anything else we'd add right now, next week. But that's not as important.) /Johan (WMF) (talk) 12:32, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

Isn't couple of weeks ago too long? This was behind my decision. Matěj Suchánek (talk) 12:36, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
If we include it, has the date changed? Given that 13 June is so soon, it would make more sense to say when than "later", if it's still true. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 13:45, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
Actually, I have no strong opinion on this. If you think it's better to have a single message for both past and future event, I have no problem with that. (Well, because of being busy I forgot to include it in the previous issue and now I wanted to make the delay as small as possible...) Matěj Suchánek (talk) 13:54, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

Tech ambassadors, "take two"[edit]

Hello tech ambassador! This month has seen a good influx of new faces in this crew \o/ , so it is time to reactivate our conversations. Now that we have a pretty good coverage of so many different projects, here are some topics for your consideration.

  1. Are there further thoughts on the role itself? I hope the questions available on Meta can help spark them. Please weigh in at Talk:Tech/Ambassadors/List#Tech ambassadors, take 2.
  2. How about we try and organise future collective work in a Phabricator workboard? Talk:Tech/Ambassadors/List#A Phab workboard for us? has all the details to explore this proposal.
  3. Finally, you are also welcome to comment at, should you happen to have suggestions for the Community Liaisons team, currently wondering how to measure "Wiki projects requesting beta features and other early deployments".

We hope to be able to host a live discussion in early 2018; until then, we're looking forward to hearing from you on Meta! All the best, --Elitre (WMF) (talk), on behalf of the Community Liaisons

Getting started on Phabricator[edit]

Ambox warning green construction.svg

Greetings, ambassador!

As recently discussed within this group, we are ready to experiment with setting up a project and its related workboard on Phabricator, the platform used in the Wikimedia movement for project management, software bug reporting and feature requests. It will help us coordinate and cooperate better on projects that should require ambassadors' involvement.

For the time being, I'm just asking that you please add your Phabricator nickname next to your name in the ambassadors' table (you can create an account now if you don't have one already). I will send you further information soon! Thanks for your patience as we get to the operational stage of this effort :) Best, --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 15:00, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

Global preferences ready for testing[edit]


I am contacting you because of your support for Global settings in the 2016 Community Tech Wishlist. Global preferences are now available for beta testing, and need your help before being released to the wikis.

  1. Read over the help page, it is brief and has screenshots
  2. Login or register an account on Beta English Wikipedia
  3. Visit Global Preferences and try enabling and disabling some settings
  4. Visit some other language and project test wikis such as English Wikivoyage, German Wiktionary, the Hebrew Wikipedia and test the settings
  5. Report your findings, experience, bugs, and other observations

Once the team has feedback on design issues, bugs, and other things that might need worked out, the problems will be addressed and global preferences will be sent to the wikis.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 19:47, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
