Editing of sitewide CSS/JS is only possible for interface administrators from now[brontekst bewerken]

(Help met het vertalen naar uw taal)

Hi all,

as announced previously, permission handling for CSS/JS pages has changed: only members of the interface-admin (interfacemoderatoren) group, and a few highly privileged global groups such as stewards, can edit CSS/JS pages that they do not own (that is, any page ending with .css or .js that is either in the MediaWiki: namespace or is another user's user subpage). This is done to improve the security of readers and editors of Wikimedia projects. More information is available at Creation of separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JS. If you encounter any unexpected problems, please contact me or file a bug.

Élection communautaire au Conseil d'administration de Wikimédia France[brontekst bewerken]

Help met het vertalen naar uw taal

Ce message est déposé ici car Wikimédia France a identifié la langue de votre projet comme étant un des langues de France.
This message is posted here because Wikimedia France has identified the language of your project as being one of the languages ​​of France.

Bonjour à toutes et tous,

Le 23 février dernier l'association Wikimédia France s'est dotée de nouveaux statuts. Dorénavant, un siège du Conseil d'administration de Wikimédia France est réservé à une personne désignée par la communauté des contributeurs aux différents projets Wikimedia[1].

Wikimédia France est une association à but non lucratif, de type loi 1901, qui soutient et promeut les différents projets Wikimedia en France mais n'exerce aucun rôle éditorial ni aucun rôle d'hébergeur de ces projets. Elle est juridiquement indépendante des projets et de la Wikimedia Foundation.

Néanmoins, il est sûr que la notoriété de l'association est entièrement issue de celle des différents projets, ce qui détermine en grande partie sa capacité à rencontrer les acteurs institutionnels et associatifs et à attirer la générosité du public. D'autre part, les marques, les logos et un peu moins de la moitié des ressources de Wikimédia France[2] sont issues d'un accord avec la Wikimedia Foundation, organe central du mouvement wikimédien. En bref, l'essentiel de la capacité d'action de Wikimédia France est rendu possible grâce à votre travail. C'est pourquoi Wikimédia France a pensé qu'il est légitime qu'une personne désignée par la communauté des contributeurs puisse siéger à son Conseil d'administration. Une fois désignée, la personne sera formellement investie en novembre par un vote de l'Assemblée générale de l'association, seule instance souveraine en cette matière. En tant que membre du Conseil d'administration, la personne choisie pourra exercer les rôles de contrôle, de gestion et de conseil stratégique pour l'association[3].

Le dépôt des candidatures sera possible à partir du 1er septembre 2019 et le vote sera ouvert du 20 au 30 septembre 2019.

Toutes les informations utiles (calendrier détaillé, droit de vote, conditions d'éligibilité, etc.) sont à retrouver sur m:Wikimédia France/Gouvernance/Siège_communautaire. Fin août / début septembre, une session « posez toutes les questions que vous voulez » (ask me everything), sera organisée en ligne pour répondre aux diverses interrogations.

Enfin, Wikimédia France souhaite mettre en place une commission électorale recueillant et validant les candidatures et surveillant ce processus électoral. Si la fonction vous intéresse, vous pouvez vous signaler à election at

Update on the consultation about office actions[brontekst bewerken]

Hello all,

Last month, the Wikimedia Foundation's Trust & Safety team announced a future consultation about partial and/or temporary office actions. We want to let you know that the draft version of this consultation has now been posted on Meta.

This is a draft. It is not intended to be the consultation itself, which will be posted on Meta likely in early September. Please do not treat this draft as a consultation. Instead, we ask your assistance in forming the final language for the consultation.

For that end, we would like your input over the next couple of weeks about what questions the consultation should ask about partial and temporary Foundation office action bans and how it should be formatted. Please post it on the draft talk page. Our goal is to provide space for the community to discuss all the aspects of these office actions that need to be discussed, and we want to ensure with your feedback that the consultation is presented in the best way to encourage frank and constructive conversation.

Please visit the consultation draft on Meta-wiki and leave your comments on the draft’s talk page about what the consultation should look like and what questions it should ask.

Thank you for your input! -- The Trust & Safety team 16 ogu 2019 08:03 (UTC)

The Wikimedia Foundation’s Community Development team is seeking to learn more about the way volunteers learn and develop into the many different roles that exist in the movement. Our goal is to build a movement informed framework that provides shared clarity and outlines accessible pathways on how to grow and develop skills within the movement. To this end, we are looking to speak with you, our community to learn about your journey as a Wikimedia volunteer. Whether you joined yesterday or have been here from the very start, we want to hear about the many ways volunteers join and contribute to our movement.

To learn more about the project, please visit the Meta page. If you are interested in participating in the project, please complete this simple Google form.

Additional interface for edit conflicts on talk pages[brontekst bewerken]

Sorry, for writing this text in English. If you could help to translate it, it would be appreciated.

You might know the new interface for edit conflicts (currently a beta feature). Now, Wikimedia Germany is designing an additional interface to solve edit conflicts on talk pages. This interface is shown to you when you write on a discussion page and another person writes a discussion post in the same line and saves it before you do. With this additional editing conflict interface you can adjust the order of the comments and edit your comment. We are inviting everyone to have a look at the planned feature. Let us know what you think on our central feedback page! -- For the Technical Wishes Team: Max Klemm (WMDE) 26 feb 2020 14:15 (UTC)

Files on[brontekst bewerken]


I like to work on files and I noticed that have 500 files. Only admins can upload files and the latest was uploaded in 2014.

All files must meet wmf:Resolution:Licensing_policy and that means all files must meet either:

  • Free files must have a valid license etc.
  • Non-free files must live up to the EDP (it requires that have one)

If the files do not meet the requirements they should be replaced by other files and be deleted.

If uploader is still active it should be easy to check files and add any missing information: Specioal:Bestandenlijst/

If the files are free and usable I suggest to move them to Commons. It can be done very easy with FileImporter. I can help you set it up if you need help. --MGA73 (overleg) 8 apr 2020 15:46 (UTC)

Feedback on movement names[brontekst bewerken]

Hallo. Apologies if you are not reading this message in your native language. Help met het vertalen naar uw taal if necessary. Bedankt!

There are a lot of conversations happening about the future of our movement names. We hope that you are part of these discussions and that your community is represented.

Since 16 June, the Foundation Brand Team has been running a survey in 7 languages about 3 naming options. There are also community members sharing concerns about renaming in a Community Open Letter.

Our goal in this call for feedback is to hear from across the community, so we encourage you to participate in the survey, the open letter, or both. The survey will go through 7 July in all timezones. Input from the survey and discussions will be analyzed and published on Meta-Wiki.

Thanks for thinking about the future of the movement, --The Brand Project team, 2 jul 2020 19:42 (UTC)

Note: The survey is conducted via a third-party service, which may subject it to additional terms. For more information on privacy and data-handling, see the survey privacy statement.
