Interwiki bots

Several days ago, Russian Wikivoyage became the first Wikivoyage project adopting The standart bot policy. We are now ready to host interwiki bots, who do not require any additional authorization. Is anybody interested in running an interwiki bot between different Wikivoyage versions? --Ymblanter (talk) 14:30, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Odd spot

This is really weird. Translating Stefan F's name into Ryan's... This, that and the other (talk) 10:53, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

Very strange. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 18:48, 24 December 2012 (UTC)
hi hi: really strange. But I can confirm Stefan and Ryan are different persons. -- DerFussi 08:56, 27 December 2012 (UTC)

Project lists

Hi, why scrapping the Project lists? It's the same for all pages with the name of a Wikimedia project. Ziko (talk) 23:49, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

I removed the page top banner box with the links to the other MWF Projects (template:project lists) because this page (Wikivoyage) is not about those. Meta's Main Page is a more appropriate place for those links and they do look quite nice there; anyone can get there from here with one click on the big WM logo at top left of every page. Meta Wikivoyage is the place for us to focus on Wikivoyage which is rather complex enough already. However, thanks for the warm welcome! --Rogerhc (talk) 21:38, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
I don't get it. :-) Wikisource, Wikibooks etc. have this template too, so what's the problem? By the way, on the Meta Wiki main page in German there is no Wikivoyage. Ziko (talk) 22:06, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
The problem is we have enough distractions already, quite a bit of work to do and there is a place for focus, clarity and simplicity in our lives. Regarding links to Wikivoyage, Wikivoyage on WMF is still in beta and not ripe for publicity yet; we are missing thousands of essential images that must all be imported by hand apparently, and there are lots of details that require our focus. What is "Meta Wiki main page in German" by the way? --Rogerhc (talk) 22:25, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
Please see Main Page/de. Remember that Meta is multiligual. WV should be added there, of course. And if a template is used on other projects' sites, it should also be on the Wikivoyage page on Meta. I am going to add it again in a moment.--Aschmidt (talk) 23:22, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
I've added Wikivoyage to the English and to the German main page template of WM projects.--Aschmidt (talk) 00:04, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
It's been reverted because it's still beta and hence not fit for the main page...--Aschmidt (talk) 00:18, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
No need to be afraid that this link will reach a lot of people - it's even on the main page of WP. :-) Ziko (talk) 19:57, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
Dewiki only. ;) --Aschmidt (talk) 21:44, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
You mean de.WP? :-) Ziko (talk) 17:45, 28 November 2012 (UTC)
dewiki/enwiki normally means de/en.wikipedia, Yes. It's a bad habit, but it's the way it looks on wmf-sites, no matter we like it or not. -- Lavallen 14:35, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
Does it? And even if, bad habits are to be changed. "Wiki" as an abbreviation for "Wikipedia" is one of the poorest of them all. :-) Ziko (talk) 14:43, 30 November 2012 (UTC) = de.wp = dewiki, with dewiki more often being used on the more technical platforms, I'm afraid… sorry for causing the confusion… ;) but dewiki still seems to be the only platform to have put devoy ;) on its main page.--Aschmidt (talk) 23:45, 30 November 2012 (UTC) …except for dewikiversity, of course… ;) --Aschmidt (talk) 00:22, 1 December 2012 (UTC)
