2016 WMF Strategy consultation[der Quälltäx ändere]

Sidd esu johd un doht heh di Sigg en Ühr Schprohch övversäze hällefe.

Hello, all.

The Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) has launched a consultation to help create and prioritize WMF strategy beginning July 2016 and for the 12 to 24 months thereafter. This consultation will be open, on Meta, from 18 January to 26 February, after which the Foundation will also use these ideas to help inform its Annual Plan. (More on our timeline can be found on that Meta page.)

Your input is welcome (and greatly desired) at the Meta discussion, 2016 Strategy/Community consultation.

Apologies for English, where this is posted on a non-English project. We thought it was more important to get the consultation translated as much as possible, and good headway has been made there in some languages. There is still much to do, however! We created m:2016 Strategy/Translations to try to help coordinate what needs translation and what progress is being made. :)

If you have questions, please reach out to me on my talk page or on the strategy consultation's talk page or by email to

I hope you'll join us! Maggie Dennis via MediaWiki message delivery (Klaafe) 20:06, 18. Jan 2016 (CET)

Hi, sorry for writing in English, I'm trying to update all community pages on all wikis. You're very welcome to translate this to your language. A minor correction: The MediaWiki deployment dates are March 22–24, not 21–23. My apologies. Entirely my fault. /Johan (WMF) (Klaafe) 09:44, 22. Mäz 2016 (CET)

To make sure everything is working, the Wikimedia Technology department needs to conduct a planned test. This test will show whether they can reliably switch from one data center to the other. It requires many teams to prepare for the test and to be available to fix any unexpected problems.

Aam Dinnsdaach, dem nüngxehnte Apprell schallde se obb et neuje Rääschezäntrom öm.

Jarrantehre künne mer ävver för nix. Wää esu ene Fähler jemäld kritt, moß wahde, bes alles widder zerögg op nommahl es. Dann sllt mer sing Ännderonge faßhllde lohße künne. Ävver mer schlonn vör, dadd Er Ühr Ännderonge eez ens om eije Rääschne faßhallde doht, zor Sescherheid.

Wikipedia to the Moon[der Quälltäx ändere]

Hello! Sorry that this is in English only, but we are using village pump messaging in order to reach as many language communities as possible. Wrong page? Please fix it here.

This is an invitation to all Wikipedians: Wikimedia Deutschland has been given data space to include Wikipedia content in an upcoming mission to the Moon. (No joke!) We have launched a community discussion about how to do that, because we feel that this is for the global community of editors. Please, join the discussion on Meta-Wiki (and translate this invitation to your language community)! Best, Moon team at Wikimedia Deutschland 17:35, 21. Apr 2016 (CEST)

Wikipedia to the Moon: voting has begun[der Quälltäx ändere]

Hello, after six weeks of community discussion about Wikipedia to the Moon, there are now 10 different proposals for content for the mission. Starting today, you can vote for them on Meta-Wiki, and decide what we will work on: a Wikipedia canon, different lists, the Moon in 300 languages, an astronomy editathon, featured articles, articles about technology, endangered things, or DNA-related topics. You can even vote against community involvement. Voting is open until 24 June. Sorry that this message is again in English only, but we are using village pumps to reach as many communities as possible, so that everyone knows they can vote.

Compact Links coming soon to this wiki[der Quälltäx ändere]

Sidd esu johd un doht heh di Sigg en Ühr Schprohch övversäze hällefe.

Screenshot of Compact Language Links interlanguage list

Hello, I wanted to give a heads up about an upcoming feature for this wiki, which you may already seen in the latest issue of Tech News. Compact Language Links has been available as a beta-feature on all Wikimedia wikis since 2014. With compact language links enabled, users are shown a much shorter list of languages on the interlanguage link section of an article (see image). This will be enabled as a feature in the coming week for all users, which can be turned on or off using a preference setting. We look forward to your feedback and please do let us know if you have any questions. Details about Compact Language Links can be read in the project documentation.

Due to the large scale enablement of this feature, we have had to use MassMessage for this announcement and as a result it is only written in English. We will really appreciate if this message can be translated for other users of this wiki. Thank you. On behalf of the Wikimedia Language team: Runa Bhattacharjee (WMF) (talk) 16:01, 24.
