Dear Stephan Matthiesen, 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, and regards, GeorgeBarnick (talk) 19:29, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

I've also gone ahead and deleted the page about VisualEditor that you meant to put on the talk page. Thanks for stating that it was accidental that you created it as a new page. :) --GeorgeBarnick (talk) 19:30, 10 March 2014 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

If you're really interested in my VE template solution, write me an E-Mail ( At the moment there's no "clean" source code, so I have to fix some bugs and delete hardcoded areas. I can also give you a test page.

Greetings, Ingolf

P.S. Sorry for Wikilove message, I don't know how to write a personal message in mediawiki. It's impossible, isn't it? Iw041 (talk) 08:01, 9 May 2014 (UTC)


Quick update on tables: The first ideas from the designers have been posted here: mw:VisualEditor/Design/Table editor#Design Workflow. I'd really appreciate it if you would look over their suggested system for editing tables and let them know (just leave a note on the talk page) what you think and where they can refine it. The better quality feedback they get at this stage, the sooner table editing will appear in VisualEditor. Thanks, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 21:44, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Stephan,
Just a note to make sure that you knew that basic table editing is possible now. You can insert tables and add or remove rows and columns. There is a long way to go, but it's a good start. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 04:38, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
