Wikivoyage holds monthly summits, where ambassadors from each language version can come together to report and discuss interesting news in their communities with the broader Wikivoyage community. The goal is to promote interlingual coordination and cooperation, and to more generally foster a spirit of cross-wiki community and shared endeavor.

Reports should include information such as major accomplishments, features being developed or implemented, features being discussed, technical issues, events, and examples of exceptional work being done.

February 2016[edit]


  • Now I have finished the Infobox/Quickbar for cities on de: I have rewritte the wikidata module as well. The quickbar is able to find the province article of any existing place by climbing up the geographical hierarchy on wikidata over districts and counties up to the provinces/prefectures/states. It also picks the qualifiers on wikidata for population and it compares your own data with wikidata. So you can activate Wikidata Tools do get a bigger quickbar with additional information like "different altitude on Wikidata" or something like that, including tools to edit Wikidata/the article. -- DerFussi 15:14, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

  • In order to improve the Wikidata-powered Quickbar many pieces of information on emergency phone numbers, electricity and location maps have been added to Wikidata. They can be used by Wikimedia projects as well as by external applications. A list with articles to work on can be found at voy:en:Category:Quickbar with missing information.
