Welcome to Meta![edit]

Hello This, that and the other!, and welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). Happy editing! Mikhailov Kusserow (talk) 11:30, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Wikimedia missing site template tweaks[edit]

Hey This, that and the other, I made some more tweaks to the page. Could you take a look and see what you think? (See the history for explanations of the changes.) Cbrown1023 talk 14:29, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Certainly very good. As you saw, I couldn't really be bothered improving it much, but it certainly needed an overhaul. Now we just need the devs to copy the source to the server. I pinged mediazilla:11125, but it'll probably take them a while. This, that and the other 22:04, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for your time in proofreading this page. You're right, I'm not en-N and while I'm used to read and understand both written and spoken English, writting can be complicated at times. Thank you again. Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:56, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, Thehelpfulone 22:10, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for fixing that link! :) Mathonius (talk) 02:29, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

My pleasure! Easy to forget that pesky little interwiki prefix. This, that and the other (talk) 06:29, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

Account on wikimediafoundation.org[edit]

Hi. I saw your note at Foundation wiki feedback. If you leave a request at WMFACCOUNT, I'd be happy to make you an account on wikimediafoundation.org. wikimediafoundation.org could use plenty of love. :-) --MZMcBride (talk) 02:36, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Old English Wikibooks closure proposal[edit]

We SHOULD close the vote IMMEDIATELY because the voting is inactive. If you agree, answer on my talk page, in order to inform the Langcom about the results of the vote, and to, thereby, CLOSE Old English Wikibooks. --89.216.56.7

There's no hurry to close the wiki, since it isn't actually doing any harm by staying open a little bit longer. Having said that, though, I am surprised Langcom have left the closure request open for so long (at over 8 months, it is the longest period of discussion for any closure request since the new policy was implemented).

Commons[edit]

Please also comment in the "Other discussion" section. Thanks. PiRSquared17 (talk) 00:27, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

I've now enabled e-mail notifications for mentions, so hopefully I should not miss them from now on! This, that and the other (talk) 00:30, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
You probably just missed it because echo mentions are not enabled it mainspace (there's a bug for it, but dunno which). :-( Could you please comment on the patch itself too? PiRSquared17 (talk) 16:51, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
Umm, for some reason, this page was on my watchlist. :O bugzilla:55491 --Glaisher [talk] 17:15, 20 February 2014 (UTC)
The mentions are actually working fine: the page in question is in ns1 (Talk:). This, that and the other (talk) 23:55, 20 February 2014 (UTC)

Unparsed links[edit]

Weird occurrence of that problem we had with self-interwikilinks: [1]. Ideas? --Nemo 07:42, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

External links can't be broken over two lines:

[http://www.example.com don't try this at home]

But wikilinks can:

fun for all the family

Tech News #29[edit]

Hi! @Nemo added a patch that you submitted to Gerrit to the current issue of Tech News. Could you write a short sentence explaining what the patch does in simple terms so that we can include it in Tech News this week? Thank you! odder (talk) 12:07, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Odder, thanks for the message. I don't really think that is worthy of inclusion in Tech News. It's a fairly obscure change. Essentially, links such as [[w:Foo]] on English Wikipedia were previously rejected as "bad title" errors, and now they are not. It's difficult to explain succinctly as it only affects a few wikis, and even then is of little interest to most contributors. If you want more detail, I suggest you peruse the bug reports linked from that patch. (Some of them are quite old!) This, that and the other (talk) 12:13, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Cross-wiki watchlist[edit]

Hi! You voted for the cross-wiki watchlist as an important suggestions in the community wishlist survey last year. I'm pinging editors 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. You can find them on the project page on Meta. If you'd like to share any comments, you're very welcome to do so on the talk page. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 00:49, 21 May 2016 (UTC)

2016 Community Wishlist Survey[edit]

Hi,

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)

Tech News[edit]

Yes, that was much better. Thank you. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 19:29, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

Re title blacklist[edit]

I am so not unicode literate to play blacklists, hence why I have been asking others to resolve. I have taken the binary response to the regex now, and will through the emphasis back the other way, as at least that now seems fairer for the same period of time. Maybe I will give each six months on, and six months off. It has annoyed me the approach by both sides to say (fix|leave) it rather than discuss and present a reasonable solution. Thanks for your comment it was at least closer to a solution, though not enough for me to action in my unicode illiteracy.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:53, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, billinghurst. I think the Arabic editors probably felt it was "obvious" that the blacklist entry should be removed, which made your job as stewards a bit difficult. Of course, what needs to happen is that a more subtle rule should be developed, similar to those that prevent mixed-script usernames. But I think we will leave that to the experts :) This, that and the other (talk) 06:00, 30 December 2016 (UTC)
To note that I am no longer a steward, gave that up a year ago. Too much RL! So I am just a shepherd (with an opinion) here doing the communities wishes; though with enough credibility to get grumpy, to action and not get immediately reverted.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:19, 30 December 2016 (UTC)
