I have an iMac that runs macOS Mojave Version 10.14.6 with the 3 GHz Intel Core i5 Processor, 8 GB 2667 MHz DDR4 Memory and Radeon Pro 560X 4 GB Graphics. I've really enjoyed the way MediaWiki presents articles and resources on the various Wikimedia Foundation projects. So, I'd like to find out if I can run MediaWiki on my computer, prepare resources in the course of my research and upload them to one or more of the projects I currently contribute to when it's appropriate to put them into the Public Domain. Currently, I contribute primarily to Wikiversity but have run into a political problem that I cannot solve so I'd like to try preparing resources from home. Can you help?

Where is the HELP and FAQ for end-user like me ?
I am a end-user of jawikipedia and not a user who want to install MedaiWiki.
There are Help and FAQ in this site.
But they are both for users who want to install MediaWiki and I cannot found HELP and FAQ for me.
The first I want to do is to change my talk page user interface as normal wikipedia style.
(Because this user interface is not familiar to me and is not convinient.)
Please teach me where I can find the answer.
Thank you !!!
The help pages are written for end-users of MediaWiki. You can find information about editing and formatting there. Hope this helps!
Hello APaskulin (WMF) !!!
Thank you for your reply.
Certainly, somewhere in Project:Help there seems to be some information for end-users like me.
However, the link is not working well and it is very hard to find such information.
I'll ask you how to use this page, so please answer.
I am a Japanese speaker.
So the Help page I use is Project:Help/ja.
However, when I click the link on this page, it jump to the English page instead of the Japanese page.
Almost the same phebomena applies to other links. So please tell me how to make it jump to the Japanese page.
Thank you !!!
I recommend changing the language in your user preferences (Special:Preferences). This should open links in the Japanese version by default.
In the case of MediaWiki ハンドブック, since that page in on a different wiki (meta.wikimedia.org), you'll need to change your language preferences on meta.wikimedia.org (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Preferences) in order for pages on that wiki to open the Japanese version by default.
I hope this helps!
There is a link on this very page (and every page) in the sidebar. The link is called "User help".
Friends, I'm wondering if mediawiki.org has the equivalent of en:Wikipedia:Village pump? If not, maybe we should mention that fact on the community portal, and suggest a single best point of entry for new discussions?
For general discussions related to the site itself, please go to Project:Current issues.
And request for comments are usually posted atProject:Requests#Other_requests_and_requests_for_comments.
So where can one propose a tidying/organisation project?
