- en: Requests for the bot flag should be made on this page. This wiki uses the standard bot policy, and allows global bots and automatic approval of certain types of bots. Other bots should apply below, and then request access from a steward if there is no objection.

Op het tuisblad staat lappen tekst in het duits. Nu kan ik dat wel lezen en vele met mij. Maar een vertaling van het duits naar het afrikaans is wel gewenst. Zo wel het zichtbare deel als het onzichtbare deel in de 'broncode'. Carsrac 16:46, 23 Oktober 2009 (UTC)
Hello. To facilitate steward granting of bot access, I suggest implementing the standard bot policy on this wiki. In particular, this policy allows stewards to automatically flag known interlanguage linking bots (if this page says that is acceptable), which form the vast majority of such requests. The policy also enables global bots on this wiki (if this page says that is acceptable), which are trusted bots that will be given bot access on every wiki that allows global bots.
This policy makes bot access requesting much easier for local users, operators, and stewards. To implement it we only need to create a redirect to this page from Project:Bot policy, and add a line at the top noting that it is used here. Please read the text at m:Bot policy before commenting. If you object, please say so; I hope to implement in two weeks if there is no objection, since it is particularly written to streamline bot requests on wikis with little or no community interested in bot access requests.

IMPORTANT: Admin activity review[wysig]
Apologies for writing in English; if you can translate this notice to help other readers then please do so.
A new policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc) was recently adopted by global community consensus (your community received a notice about the discussion). According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing administrators' activity on smaller wikis. To the best of our knowledge, your wiki does not have a formal process for removing "advanced rights" from inactive accounts. This means that the stewards will take care of this according to the new admin activity review here.
We have determined that the following users meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no log actions for more than 2 years):
- Adriaan90 (administrator)
These users will receive a notification soon, asking them to start a community discussion if they want to retain some or all of their rights. If the users do not respond, then their advanced rights will be removed by the stewards.
However, if you as a community would like to create your own activity review process superseding the global one, want to make another decision about these inactive rights holders, or already have a policy that we missed, then please notify the stewards on Meta-Wiki so that we know not to proceed with the rights review on your wiki. Thanks, QuiteUnusual (kontak) 12:19, 19 Augustus 2013 (UTC)
AbuseFilter is a MediaWiki extension used to detect likely abusive behavior patterns, like pattern vandalism and spam. In 2013, Global AbuseFilters were enabled on a limited set of wikis including Meta-Wiki, MediaWiki.org, Wikispecies and (in early 2014) all the "small wikis". Recently, global abuse filters were enabled on "medium sized wikis" as well. These filters are currently managed by stewards on Meta-Wiki and have shown to be very effective in preventing mass spam attacks across Wikimedia projects. However, there is currently no policy on how the global AbuseFilters will be managed although there are proposals. There is an ongoing request for comment on policy governing the use of the global AbuseFilters. In the meantime, specific wikis can opt out of using the global AbuseFilter. These wikis can simply add a request to this list on Meta-Wiki. More details can be found on this page at Meta-Wiki. If you have any questions, feel free to ask on m:Talk:Global AbuseFilter.

Hello, I want to tell you that I've made a proposal for a Cookbook event on this Meta page.
Compact Language Links enabled in this wiki today[wysig]
Please help translate to your language
Compact Language Links has been available as a beta-feature on all Wikimedia wikis since 2014. With compact language links enabled, users are shown a much shorter list of languages on the interlanguage link section of an article (see image). Based on several factors, this shorter list of languages is expected to be more relevant for them and valuable for finding similar content in a language known to them. More information about compact language links can be found in the documentation.
From today onwards, compact language links has been enabled as the default listing of interlanguage links on this wiki. Using the button at the bottom, you will be able to see a longer list of all the languages the article has been written in. The setting for this compact list can be changed by using the checkbox under User Preferences -> Appearance -> Languages
The compact language links feature has been tested extensively by the Wikimedia Language team, which developed it. However, in case there are any problems or other feedback please let us know on the project talk page or on this discussion thread. It is to be noted that on some wikis the presence of an existing older gadget that was used for a similar purpose may cause an interference for compact language list. We would like to bring this to the attention of the admins of this wiki. Full details are on this phabricator ticket (in English).
Due to the large scale enablement of this feature, we have had to use MassMessage for this announcement and as a result it is only written in English. We will really appreciate if this message can be translated for other users of this wiki. Thank you. On behalf of the Wikimedia Language team: Runa Bhattacharjee (WMF) (talk) 07:04, 24 Junie 2016 (UTC)
Improved search in deleted pages archive[wysig]
Please help translate to your language
During Wikimedia Hackathon 2016, the Discovery team worked on one of the items on the 2015 community wishlist, namely enabling searching the archive of deleted pages. This feature is now ready for production deployment, and will be enabled on all wikis, except Wikidata.
Right now, the feature is behind a feature flag - to use it on your wiki, please go to the
Special:Undelete page, and add
&fuzzy=1 to the URL, like this: https://test.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3AUndelete&fuzzy=1. Then search for the pages you're interested in. There should be more results than before, due to using ElasticSearch indexing (via the CirrusSearch extension).
We plan to enable this improved search by default on all wikis soon (around August 1, 2017). If you have any objections to this - please raise them with the Discovery team via email or on this announcement's discussion page. Like most Mediawiki configuration parameters, the functionality can be configured per wiki.
Once the improved search becomes the default, you can still access the old mode using
&fuzzy=0 in the URL, like this: https://test.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3AUndelete&fuzzy=0
Please note that since Special:Undelete is an admin-only feature, this search capability is also only accessible to wiki admins.

Global bot policy proposal: invitation to a Meta discussion[wysig]
Universal Code of Conduct enforcement consultations[wysig]
you may know me under my Wikimedia username – Nadzik. I came here last year to contribute to your project as well as I can. I am sorry for writing to you in English, but this will make the message more understandable, than using an automatic translator. Feel free to translate my post!
What is the Universal Code of Conduct?[wysig]
The UCoC is intended to serve as a document that will incorporate the basic standards of behaviour in order to standardize them across all Wikimedia projects. It aims to include a list of inappropriate behaviours that will not be accepted in our projects, and also takes care of the safety of all users.
It is also intended to provide a common ground in those communities that do not have their own specific regulations and rules on this subject. It will widely help smaller and younger projects that have not yet had the opportunity to write down their own rules related to the inappropriate behaviour of their contributors.
Consultations carried out in 2019 and in the first half of 2020 allowed for the preparation of a preliminary proposal of rules, however, there are still no provisions related to the implementation of the UCoC. To this end consultations started in many Wikimedia project communities.
How will the consultations work?[wysig]
In January and February 2021, nine language facilitators from the Wikimedia Foundation will engage in a series of consultations with different language communities (including Wikidata and Commons user communities). I've also asked to be allowed consulting with the Afrikaans community, as I've had the pleasure to work with some of you before. In the coming weeks, we will have the opportunity to talk together about your views, visions and ideas for implementation in connection with the introduction of UCoC .
The goal of the Wikimedia Foundation is to obtain information from various communities, and only on the basis of the currently conducted consultations, our team will prepare and present reports and various possibilities of implementing UCoC into force. I encourage everyone to share their opinion with me and with other members of our community. Starting in February, some of you may also be contacted by a dedicated affiliate outreach or user group outreach.
How to participate?[wysig]
Feel free to express your opinion in the most convenient way for you. To enable everyone willing to participate in consultations, they will be conducted in several ways:
- Village pump discussion at af.wikipedia
- Opening a new thread on my User talk page
- Emailing me directly via Wikimail
Additionally, in the coming days, an anonymous poll will be launched for community members who would like to privately convey their feelings about the UCoC, as well as the spheres surrounding it (the state of the rules in our projects, unwanted situations and other developments you are willing to discuss).
I also invite you to visit FAQ-page, that already has answers to most frequently asked questions. If you have any questions, ping me, to make sure that I see your message!
Wiki Loves Folklore 2021 is back![wysig]

Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globally[wysig]
Please help translate to your language
I apologize for posting in English. I would like to inform everyone that I created a new global request for comment (GRFC) at Meta Wiki, which may affect your project: m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.
In this GRFC, I propose that two-project shortcuts for project names will become a default alias for the project namespace. For instance, on all Wikipedias, WP will be an alias to the Wikipedia: namespace (and similar for other projects). Full list is available in the GRFC.
This is already the case for Wikivoyages, and many individual projects asked for this alias to be implemented. I believe this makes it easier to access the materials in the project namespace, as well as creating shortcuts like WP:NPOV, as well as helps new projects to use this feature, without having to figure out how to request site configuration changes first.
As far as I can see, Wikibooks currently does not have such an alias set. This means that such an alias will be set for you, if the GRFC is accepted by the global community.
I would like to ask all community members to participate in the request for comment at Meta-Wiki, see m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.
Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions about this proposal.
