Use the links above if you're seeking assistance with MediaWiki, as this page is used for discussing the content on the Sysadmin hub page only.
Being the Sysadmin Hub it would be useful to add here links to information about Wikimedia sysadmins and opportunities to contribute there.
fwiw this is what I had written for How to contribute (but had to cut because the page was getting too long):
Wikipedia is one of the top 5 sites of the Internet and it runs on MediaWiki software. Sysadmins willing to contribute are welcome!
- Check the Sysadmin hub.
- Get a Wikimedia Labs instance to experiment.
- Meet the system administrators running the Wikimedia servers.
