From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Latest comment: 4 years ago by MediaWiki message delivery in topic Over-qualified CSS selectors

Sure we can combine it with the list of articles all languages should have, as a matter of fact I also have a strong interest in this project and have translated it into Polish (with other Polish Wikipedians) pl:Wikipedia:Strony, które powinna mieć każda Wikipedia.

I think my idea needs some discussion and refinement and most of all, people willing to participate.

Hi, you might want to have a look at list of articles all languages should have/Albert Einstein. Do you think this is the way to go as far as multilingual coordination/cooperation/expansion is concerned ? Kpjas 07:59, 10 Jul 2004 (UTC)
Hi, hi,

wir haben schon mal über die Wikiversität gesprochen - schau mal nach unter http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikiversit%C3%A4tSkizze1, eine Traumskizze niedergeschrieben nach einer Tagung, beim Warten auf den Zug. Ich komme zum Stammtisch am Sonntag, aber nicht unbedingt Punkt 19.00. --WiseWoman 14:01, 17 Sep 2004 (UTC)



Wellparp 20:10, 23 Oct 2004 (UTC) - I think we should start only with the english wikinews. Too many projects in the smaller languages risk to spread out the participants too much.

Do you agree to shut down Swedish Wiktionary until we are "finished" with en.? I know this isn't the right place to discuss but have you ever considered that there might be people who wouldn't participate at all if there were no projects in their language? -- Mathias Schindler 20:16, 23 Oct 2004 (UTC)
I think you misunderstand me... there should of course be projects in all languages, but if there are too many projects in the smaller languages the limited number of participants would be spread out between the projects. In Sweden ofcourse a swedish wikinews would take energy from the wikipedia and wiktionary. Better with one or two good swedish projects than three or four not so good. The english community is much larger and can handle an extra project. // Wellparp 10:18, 24 Oct 2004 (UTC)

trust on Wikipedia


Hi I got your contact from meta's embassy. :) This is Cathy from Hong Kong working on a research about trust on Wikipedia. I wonder if you would kindly contact me at researchingmedia@gmail.com? I'd like to chat with you about Wikipedia of your language. Would you kindly drop me your email or IM (Skype, MSN, AIM or ICQ)? It wouldn't take more than ten minutes, but it would help enormous for us to understand the overall trust-based social landscape of Wikipedia. Thank you!

I move this to Talk:Wikinews... // Wellparp 10:26, 24 Oct 2004 (UTC)



To transfer images under Wikimedia Commons from english Wikipedia to german Wikipedia I have to ask your permission or not? -- 16:01, 17 August 2007 (UTC)Reply

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are beginning the transition to the new policy.

An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.

The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that OTRS volunteers sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have been identified as an OTRS volunteer and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy. If you do not sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015, you will lose your OTRS access. OTRS volunteers have a specific agreement available, if you have recently signed the general confidentiality agreement for another role (such as CheckUser or Oversight), you do not need to sign the general agreement again, but you will still need to sign the OTRS agreement.

Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign

If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me (gvarnum(_AT_)wikimedia.org). Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain your OTRS access. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

Thank you,
Gregory Varnum (User:GVarnum-WMF), Wikimedia Foundation

Over-qualified CSS selectors


My apologies that this message is just available in English.

Over-qualified CSS selectors of portals in Wikimedia skins have been changed. div#p-personal, div#p-navigation, div#p-interaction, div#p-tb, div#p-lang, div#p-namespaces or div#p-variants are now all removed of the div qualifier, as in for example it is #p-personal, #p-navigation …. This is so the skins can use HTML5 elements. Your gadgets or user styles seem to use them and you will have to update them. You can read more in phab:T252467.
