re: Translation of Module namespace name
It has to be changed in the extension's code, sadly there's no "user-available" way to do it. If you provide me with the translations for "Module" and "Module talk" namespaces, I can import them for you. Matma Rex (talk) 00:35, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
- Patch submitted: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/105175 – it should go live within a few weeks (16 January on Wikipedias if everything goes right), see mw:MediaWiki 1.23/Roadmap. Matma Rex (talk) 13:15, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decitions
The Wikimedia Foundation recently created a new feature, "superprotect" status. The purpose is to prevent pages from being edited by elected administrators -- but permitting WMF staff to edit them. It has been put to use in only one case: to protect the deployment of the Media Viewer software on German Wikipedia, in defiance of a clear decision of that community to disable the feature by default, unless users decide to enable it.
If you oppose these actions, please add your name to this letter. If you know non-Wikimedians who support our vision for the free sharing of knowledge, and would like to add their names to the list, please ask them to sign an identical version of the letter on change.org.
