Welcome to!

Yes, welcome! This site is dedicated to documenting the MediaWiki software, the software behind many wikis, including that of Wikipedia and the Wikimedia Foundation projects.
Please, take a look at the following pages. They might prove useful to you as a newcomer here:

If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and find this site useful documentation of the MediaWiki software.

Thanks! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 15:39, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

Hey, I've heard of this place before! :p Thanks for the welcome. CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 18:49, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

Please provide feedback on suggested improvements to the Code of Conduct[edit]

Thanks to everyone who’s helped work on the Code of Conduct so far.

People have brought up issues they feel were missed when working on "Unacceptable behavior" and "Report a problem". Consultants have also suggested changes in these same sections.

These are important sections, so please take a look at the proposed changes. I apologize that this feedback arrived later than planned, but I think this will create a better document.

If you prefer to give your opinion privately, feedback via e-mail is welcome at

Please participate in discussion on updated "Marginalized and underrepresented groups" text[edit]

Thanks for participating in the earlier discussion on Talk:Code of Conduct/Draft#Marginalized and underrepresented groups. There was some support and some issues were raised. I've attempted to propose a better draft to address the issues.

Please participate at Talk:Code of Conduct/Draft#New proposed wording. Thanks. User:Mattflaschen-WMF via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 01:40, 17 March 2016 (UTC)

Please participate again in improving the "Conflict of interest" section[edit]

The "Conflict of interest" section was not approved earlier.

There has been further discussion on it, aiming to solve those issues. Please participate in the sub-sections of Talk:Code of Conduct/Draft#Finalize "Conflict of interest" section? and make sure your concerns are being addressed.

Weigh in on whether to finalize the new version of the "Conflict of interest" section[edit]

You participated earlier in discussion about the "Conflict of interest" section of the draft Code of Conduct for technical spaces. There was not consensus to approve an earlier version of this section. I'm contacting you to let you know the draft has been updated, and we are now discussing whether to finalize the new version.

Please participate here.

Thank you,

Fixing Translation markup[edit]

First of all thank you very much for reinstating my CirrusSearch documentation. You did so much restructuring and translations work on it. I'm actually starting to go back over it and polish some things I see I wrote.

I'm here to ask you about your recent Help:CirrusSearch edit that said "fix tvar" but it actually just undid a lot of "polishing" I had done. Now that your translations work and Shirayuki's translations work is done, perhaps you want me to try and reincorporate them? I learned a lot about translations markup like tvar on that edit.

I care about MediaWiki software documentation, and about Search in particular. Translation markup is an obstacle, but I might be happy to learn more about it just to get MediaWiki CirrusSearch software documentation quality up to snuff. Cpiral (talk) 06:44, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

Cpiral, Whoa! that is a super weird edit. I swear to you I really did just intend to fix a tvar, like I did with my previous edit. I'm not sure what's going on here. There's only 2 minutes between my edits and I have no recollection of making those changes. I'm going to look into this and I'll let you know what I find. CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 16:28, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
Ok, I think I figured it out. Apparently I was making a small fix to a <tvar>, but in an older version of the page. That threw things into a bit of a spiral (pardon the pun). I rolled back the page to my last sane edit and then re-added in all of Shirayuki's translations fixes (thank you!). Cpiral, when you have a moment, can you let me know if things are as they should be. Sorry again for the confusion. CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 17:40, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
You pretty much fixed it, but the tables have a few problems. Thanks for your supportive responses, CKoerner. Cpiral (talk) 23:37, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

504 Gateway Time-out, 502 Bad Gateway[edit]

For the last two days i constantly get the 504 Gateway Time-out or the 502 Bad Gateway screen. Is there an issue with the server? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 05:25, April 20, 2017

Hello! We did have a temporary pause in editing yesterday as part of a fail-over test. There's a small chance you could have been caught up in some of that. Otherwise I am unaware of any outstanding issues. CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 13:38, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

A kitten for you![edit]

Kitten (06) by Ron.jpg

Thank you again. Feel good mantra...Rainbows, kitens/puppies and Jusin Bieber! Gracias de todo corazón. Translates from Spanish roughly as "Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
