Are your scripts and gadgets working?

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Some of the recent and upcoming changes to MediaWiki affect Javascript.

If you're having problems with your scripts, then you can ask here for help.

Please also share this information with people at other wikis.

Hi everyone. Some of you have already noticed this in m:Tech News as it's been already mentioned twice, but I wanted to flag again that because of an upcoming change, there's some code that may need to be fixed on this wiki:

You can find the list of the pages you'll want to check in a table on In most cases those are false positives, and you only really need to fix as explained on when the "defective" syntax is inside a template or a wikilink, basically. When you have completed the checks, please edit the Notes field of the table accordingly! If you have questions, please reach the team on the talk page. Hope this helps, and thanks for your attention and your help.

I'd like to invite you to participate in the Wikimedia Movement Strategy discussions, about our wider movement's overall goals, "What do we want to build or achieve together over the next 15 years?".

It's currently in the first stage, of broad discussion. There are further details in the related metawiki pages (incl. FAQ, calendar and process, list of other simultaneous communities' discussions, etc). (Also, if you're interested in helping facilitate and summarize the discussions here, and to bring back here the summaries of what the other communities are discussing, in the weeks ahead, please let me know.) Thanks. (talkcontribs)

What we delay to do is solicit a 24/7display to allow/ingage/influence authornticity and enthusiasm to the hopeful of our generation,?just before the great tribulation and judgement and melting down unconstitutional and ungovernable{Djs} (talkcontribs)

I'm always aurgument that i'm not logged in and adviced to create an account even when my account is a unified one.i' totally incovienenced and demoralised to continue with this otherwise a wise family of wikipedians.But i'm adament that whoever istrying to discourage me;will cease such unscruplous/dubious action aimed on me:this is a global wise organisation that is bringing wisdom to the un suspecting minority:my IP address is always changing its code number.cant it be stable? please help {Djs}

The strategy discussion. The Cycle 2 will start on May 5

SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The first cycle of the Wikimedia movement strategy process recently concluded. During that period, we were discussing the main directions for the Wikimedia movement over the next 15 years. There are more than 1500 summary statements collected from the various communities, but none from the local discussion. The strategy facilitators and many volunteers have summarized the discussions of the previous month. A quantitative analysis of the statements will be posted on Meta for translation this week, alongside the report from the Berlin conference.

The second cycle will begin soon. It's set to begin on May 5 and run until May 31. During that period, you will be invited to dive into the main topics that emerged in the first cycle, discuss what they mean, which ones are the most important and why, and what their practical implications are. This work will be informed and complemented by research involving new voices that haven’t traditionally been included in strategy discussions, like readers, partners, and experts. Together, we will begin to make sense of all this information and organize it into a meaningful guiding document, which we will all collectively refine during the third and last cycle in June−July.

We want to help your community to be more engaged with the discussions in the next cycle. Now, we are looking for volunteers who could

  • tell us where to announce the start of the Cycle 2, and how to do that, so we could be sure the majority of your community is informed and has a chance to feel committed, and
  • facilitate the Cycle 2 discussions here, on

We are looking forward to your feedback!

Cycle 2 will last from 11 May to 12 June (moved).

The Wikimedia Foundation Collaboration team is ready to release a set of new filters for Recent changes.

These filters will be available as a beta feature by the end of the month on Portuguese and Polish Wikipedias. We plan to roll-out this new feature progressively, still as a Beta feature.

The new filters will include user intent prediction filtering on wikis where ORES is enabled. They will also include result highlighting, to help recent change reviewers.

We also want to setup the new filters on Mediawikiwiki very soon.

If you have any question or feedback, the discussion page is open!

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

We plan to deploy the new filters on Tuesday March 28, at 13:00 UTC.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The new filters are now available in your Beta preferences. Try them, and please provide feedback!

See Project:Support desk?action=info.

"Transcluded template (1)" is followed by a broken link "Template:/Header".

The link should be "Project:Support desk/Header".

Mainframe98 (talkcontribs)

Curious, so does my talk page, and Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:/Header lists those pages as containing links to that template.

Mainframe98 (talkcontribs)

A quick test on my sandbox links expands correctly on non-flowboards, so that would indicate that this is a Flow specific bug.

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

See Special:LintErrors/missing-end-tag as another example.

Extension requests also contains {{/Header}}.

WMDE Engineering says:

Failed to load RSS feed from Error fetching URL: SSL certificate problem: certificate has expired
Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

using http doesn't give those problems:

So simply switch to HTTP? or remove that feed, which I don't know if it's relevant.

Shirayuki (talkcontribs) is not in the URL whitelist of RSS feeds.

No editing on both 19 April and 3 May from 14:00 to 14:30 UTC

Ops is doing a failover test between the primary and secondary data centers. You will be able to read, but not edit, during a critical point in the work. It should last about 20 to 30 minutes on these two dates:

More information (including a link to the official schedule) is at

(User:SGrabarczuk (WMF), is this on your calendar yet?)

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Two more things for this particular audience:

  • If you discover unexpected problems (for example, if you can't read pages for more than a moment or two), then you will probably want to report unexpected problems in #wikimedia-tech Last year, #wikimedia-operations was moderated until the wikis were online again.
  • There will be code freezes during both of those weeks. I encourage you all to be thoughtful about what you choose to deploy during the week immediately the code freezes, too.
Wargo (talkcontribs)

Today switch back. Less than one hour left...
