Wikimedia notification system

2008-11-19 Mail-notification.svg This is a global notification system for all Wikimedia wikis!


If it is necessary to inform many/all wikis about something important, a global notification can be requested at meta:Global notifications/requests. It is possible to have wiki and/or language dependent text within every message.

All Meta notifications are synchronized automatically, either on all wikis or just on specific, selected ones.

To have a common access point, the messages are updated at Mpikambana:WikimediaNotifier/notifications (mirrored, any changes to this page will be overwritten; use a separate page for translation); you can include this page(s) like a template wherever you want, let's say your village pump, with a description in your language!

Have a look on the Frequently Asked Questions to see how it can fit your needs!

  • With SynchCrosswiki there furthermore is an easy way to create or synchronize pages like user scripts on all wikis!

… it's for spreading information; and for a better cross-wiki communication & collaboration!

Namespace: Image => File

2008-12-12

Namespace MediaWiki.1.svg As there are not just images located in the "Image:" namespace, this now has become a general "File:" namespace!

The actual namespace prefix in titles and URLs now are different. "Image:" is remaining as an alias, softly redirecting requests to "File:" (language dependent, soever); but if you should have a program or script that checks for "Image:" or relies on the variable wgCanonicalNamespace being 'Image', you may have to update it.

So, you may link to [[File:]] instead of [[Image:]] from now on …

Wikibooks-logo.svg

The vote for selecting a design for a new Wikibooks logo is over and Wikibooks will finally get a different logo!
Although minor things like color and style had been discussed, the original draft actually will not change much, except that the new logo will contain a localizable slogan.

Take part in the final discussion about font and slogan of the new logo at meta:Wikibooks/Logo!

FlaggedRevs review feature

2008-11-28

Artículo bueno.svg

Beside the elder Patroller extension for patrolling recent changes and new pages, there is a highly configurable MediaWiki extension, called FlaggedRevs.

FlaggedRevs – being already enabled on several Wikimedia wikis – is a toolset for transparent and ensured article patrolling and/or for reliable quality assurance by specifying certain accurate article revisions that are shown to the public by default. Those stable article versions are identified in a release process by a trustable editorial staff and/or get approved by a reviewing expert staff. It is even possible to mark (tag) revisions of selected articles for different purposes, let's say for an article validation aiming on a print edition. Furthermore, there is the possibility to let your readers give you evaluative feedbacks.

FlaggedRevs will make your wiki more reliable and thus more reputable over the time!

Have a look on Meta's description, the technical description and the guidance for requesting FlaggedRevs!

GNU Free Documentation License 1.3

2008-11-03

CC-devnations.svg

The GNU Free Documentation License has been released in version 1.3 by its responsible Free Software Foundation.
This is not least a result of a request by our Board of Trustees in December 2007, trying to offer us a possibility to also license and share our wiki contents under the easier to use Creative Commons CC-BY-SA (Attribution + ShareAlike) license.

The Wikimedia Foundation will soon organize a community wide referendum to decide whether our GNU FDL licensed wikis should be made availabe under the terms of this free and common CC-BY-SA license too, see dual-licensing.

2008-11-02

Beside the ongoing discussion about introducing an interlanguage extension on Wikimedia projects to improve and centralize interwiki linking, an attempt to centralize the discussion about interlanguage link conflicts has been set up.

Global bots

Bot Bienvenido.png

On Meta, a bot account now can get a bot flag for all wikis that allow global bots!
To be able to run also on your Wikibooks, the community has to explicitly permit global bots by local policy, see list.

To qualify for global bot access, the following requirements must be met by a bot:

  1. it must only maintain interlanguage links or fix double-redirects
  2. it must already be active on several wikis, with long-term contributions to back up its trustworthiness

The localization of Wikibooks's software (MediaWiki) and its extensions is an ongoing task!

Thus, there are statistics about how much of the core messages and system messages in total have been translated so far.


Please help translating our software at Betawiki (=TranslateWiki); have a look on the recent localization activity for your language [Malagasy].
