Latest '''[[m:Special:MyLanguage/Tech/News|tech news]]''' from the Wikimedia technical community. Please tell other users about these changes. Not all changes will affect you. [[m:Special:MyLanguage/Tech/News/2018/02|Translations]] are available.

'''Recent changes'''
* On Wikidata, the "{{int:wikibase-save}}" button when you edit is now called "{{int:wikibase-publish}}". This means all Wikimedia wikis have now changed from "{{int:savearticle}}" to "{{int:publishchanges}}". This is to help new editors understand what it does. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T161367][https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T131132]
* Some edits will get an automatic [[Special:Tags|tag]] on all wikis. This will happen when making a page a redirect, blanking a page, removing almost all content, undoing an edit, or rolling back an edit. You can see the tags for example in the recent changes feed, article history, user contributions or on your watchlist. Some wikis had already marked edits like these in other ways. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T167656]
* [[Special:UnusedFiles|Special:UnusedFiles]] shows files that have been uploaded but are not used. It will show a file that is not used on the wiki it has been uploaded to, even if the file is used on another wiki. The new [[c:Special:GloballyUnusedFiles|Special:GloballyUnusedFiles page on Commons]] only shows files that are not used on any wiki. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T183673]
* [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Structured Discussions|Structured discussions]] now uses the 2017 wikitext editor instead of its old custom one. This will work with your preference for wikitext or visual editor. The documentation [[mw:Help:Structured_Discussions/Quick_tour#basics|has been updated]]. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T155861][https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T178719]
 
'''Problems'''
* Older versions of the Chrome web browser on mobile devices may see the PDF download button, but it does not work. The developers are looking into the problem. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T182059]
* With the new filters in the recent changes, "{{int:rcfilters-exclude-button-off}}" in "{{int:namespaces}}" did not work for "{{int:rcfilters-quickfilters}}" between 13 December and 2 January. When you loaded the saved filter all other namespaces were excluded instead. This has now been fixed. If you made any changes to your saved filters between 13 December and 2 January, you need to save your filters with excluded namespaces again. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T183910]
* The latest version of [[w:en:Google Chrome|Google Chrome]] broke how section links are shown in the address bar. You now see <code>#R%C3%A9sum%C3%A9</code> instead of <code>#Résumé</code> even if MediaWiki did not encode it that way. This happened in early December. This problem has been solved. The fix will be in Chrome 64 (23 January) or Chrome 65 (6 March). [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T152540#3830013]
* <span title="Advanced item">[[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=]]</span> Some POST requests to the API took longer than usual in parts of December. This affected the Wikidata UI and some gadgets the most. It has now been fixed. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T182322]
 
'''Changes later this week'''
* Wikidata will be moved to its own database [[w:en:Server (computing)|servers]]. This is because it is growing and needs more resources. Because of this '''you will be able to read but not edit''' Wikidata and the German Wikipedia between 06:00 and 06:30 [[w:en:Coordinated Universal Time|UTC]] on 9 January. You might lose edits if you try to save during this time. This includes editing the language links on other wikis. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T181645]
* The font size in the editing window will change slightly for some users. It will now look the same on all browsers and operating systems. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T182320][https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Editing/Projects/Font_size_in_the_editing_window]
* <span title="Recurrent item">[[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=]]</span> The [[mw:MediaWiki 1.31/wmf.16|new version]] of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 9 January. It will be on non-Wikipedia wikis and some Wikipedias from 10 January. It will be on all wikis from 11 January ([[mw:MediaWiki 1.31/Roadmap|calendar]]).
* <span title="Advanced item">[[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=]]</span> WikiEditor's ResourceLoader modules have been simplified to one: <code>ext.wikiEditor</code>. All the other modules are now deprecated aliases and should be removed. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T165112]
 
'''Meetings'''
* <span title="Recurrent item">[[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=]]</span> You can join the next meeting with the Editing team. During the meeting, you can tell developers which bugs you think are the most important. The meeting will be on [https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?hour=19&min=30&sec=0&year=2018&month=01&day=09 9 January at 19:30 (UTC)].

'''Recent changes'''
* Bureaucrats on Wikimedia wikis where the [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Help:Extension:Translate|Translate extension]] is installed can now add and remove the translation administrator permission by default. Administrators of wikis where this extension is enabled can add and remove this permission to or from themselves. Wikis that used a different configuration before have not changed. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T184610]
* <span title="Advanced item">[[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=]]</span> There is a new [https://discourse-mediawiki.wmflabs.org/ Discourse test support channel] for Wikimedia developers. You can ask questions or answer others questions about MediaWiki and Wikimedia software development. [https://discourse-mediawiki.wmflabs.org/t/welcome-to-wikimedia-developer-support/8]
 
'''Problems'''
* Last week's MediaWiki update was rolled back. This was because of a bug that changed non-[[w:en:ASCII|ASCII]] characters when a page was edited. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T184749][https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2018-January/089399.html]

See [[mw:Technical Advice IRC Meeting|how to join]].
 
'''Future changes'''
* <span title="Advanced item">[[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=]]</span> A few hundred wikis with less than ten high-priority errors in [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Help:Extension:Linter|Linter]] categories will switch to use the [[mw:RemexHtml|Remex parsing library]]. This is [[mw:Parsing/Replacing Tidy|to replace Tidy]]. It will happen on 31 January. Other wikis will be recommended to switch soon when they have fixed the errors that must be fixed. Tidy will be removed in the middle of 2018. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T184656][https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Parsing/Replacing_Tidy/FAQ#What_will_editors_need_to_do.3F]

'''Recent changes'''
* Filters on [[Special:RecentChangesLinked|Special:RecentChangesLinked]] will get the new look similar to on the recent changes page. Special:RecentChangesLinked will also get some new features. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T172161][https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Global_Collaboration/Newsletter/Issues/2018/01]
 
'''Problems'''
* With the new [[mw:UX standardization|OOUI look]] menus and popups can open upwards instead of downwards. This was meant to make long dropdown menus easier to use. Sometimes these menus have been overlapped by other things. This is now fixed. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T183069]

'''Future changes'''
*<code>[[wikitech:Irc.wikimedia.org|irc.wikimedia.org]]</code> will be rebooted on 22 February. Some bots use this to get the recent changes feed.

'''Recent changes'''
* Bureaucrats can now add and remove the accountcreator permission by default. This means the user can help create a large number of accounts, for example for an [[w:en:Edit-a-thon|editathon]]. Wikis can change this if they want to. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T185417]
* The [https://tools.wmflabs.org/wdvd/index.php Wikidata vandalism dashboard] is a new tool to monitor vandalism on Wikidata labels and descriptions. It is filtered by language. [https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikidata/2018-January/011741.html]
* Info pages for file pages now show the file's [[w:en:File verification|SHA1 hash value]] in the table of basic information. This is so users can see that the file is the same as the one they uploaded. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T181651]
 
'''Problems'''
* [[Special:Export|Special:Export]] has a higher error rate right now. This means that the export does not always work. You should check to make sure your page exports worked. The developers are working on fixing this. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T186318]
 
'''Changes later this week'''
* When you review an edit made with the visual editor you can check a [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Visual diffs|visual diff]] of your changes besides the wikitext diff. If you pick one diff type it will remember and show you that in future. The visual diff will now be the type first shown to new users. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T178248]
* When you use a gallery to show images you can define the size, like <code>gallery widths="150px"</code>. You could use <code>em</code> or <code>%</code> instead of <code>px</code> but it would make no difference. You can now only use <code>150px</code> or nothing (<code>150</code>). If you write something else, instead of treating it like <code>px</code>, it will not work. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T129372]
* The wording when you send a thanks message will change. Instead of <code>{{int:confirmable-yes}}</code> or <code>{{int:confirmable-no}}</code> it will say <code>Thank</code> and <code>Cancel</code>. It will also be easier to understand that all thanks are public. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T159302]
* Redirects connected to Wikidata can create double Wikidata items. There will now be a [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Help:Tracking categories|tracking category]] for this. Wikis that don't want it [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Help:Tracking categories|can disable it]]. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T185743]
* [[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=|Recurrent item]] The [[mw:MediaWiki 1.31/wmf.20|new version]] of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 6 February.

'''Recent changes'''
* TemplateStyles has been deployed to the Swedish Wikipedia. TemplateStyles is a feature to make it easy to add CSS to templates without administrator privileges. This allows for better adaptability to screen sizes, especially on mobile where are half our total page views. If your community would like to be the next to have the feature, please [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/maniphest/task/edit/form/1/?projects=TemplateStyles submit a task on Phabricator]. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T176082][https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:TemplateStyles][https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/maniphest/task/edit/form/1/?projects=TemplateStyles]
* Registration pages now collect keyboard/mouse usage information for [[m:Research:Spambot detection via registration page behavior|research on identifying spambots]].
 
'''Changes later this week'''
* You can opt in to a new beta feature that lets you use [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/VisualEditor/Diffs|visual diffs]] on history pages. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T185708]
* The visual editor shows and lets you edit templates in one way, and reference lists in another. This meant that templates that only contain a fake reference list, like <code><nowiki>{{reflist}}</nowiki></code>, would not get updated as you edited. Now they will update as you edit, but you will no longer be able to visually edit them as templates. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T52769]
* The abuse filter extension has a new feature <code>contains_all</code> that you may use to check if one or more strings are all contained in another given string. [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Extension:AbuseFilter/Rules_format]
* [[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=|Recurrent item]] The [[mw:MediaWiki 1.31/wmf.21|new version]] of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 13 February.

'''Problems'''
* [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Extension:Linter|Linter]] is reporting estimated counts instead of actual counts for some wikis. This is because of performance problems.

* Last week the way that Visual Editor displays references lists was changed. As a result, the references generated by specific templates like <code><nowiki>{{sfn}}</nowiki></code> are not visible in the references list whilst editing.

* [[Special:Statistics|Special:Statistics]] did not take newly created pages into account since 13 February 2018. Because of this the statistics are recreated.

* From 9 April, the sort order of categories will be distorted for a short time.

'''Problems'''
* MediaWiki deployment train has been rolled back to version <span dir=ltr>1.31.0-wmf.26</span> on week 13, due to a multiplication of lost connections during MySQL queries. Some of the recent changes may have not been applied. They will be deployed next week.

'''Recent changes'''
*Some pages have templates that describe problems with that article. There is now more information for mobile readers and what is wrong with the article and how they could help fix it. [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Reading/Web/Projects/Mobile_Page_Issues#Updates_to_the_page_issue_modal]
*You can now thank users for many more actions than edits to a page. This was [[m:2017 Community Wishlist Survey/Miscellaneous/Allow %27thanks%27 notification for a log entry|one of the top ten requests in the Wishlist Survey]] last year. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T60485]
* The sort order of categories will have errors for a short time starting Monday 9 April (UTC).

== Tell us what you think about the automatic links for Wiktionary ==
 
<div class="plainlinks mw-content-ltr" lang="en" dir="ltr">
Hello all,
 
(Sorry for writing in English. Feel free to translate this message below.)
 
One year ago, the Wikidata team started deploying new automatic interwiki links for Wiktionaries. Today, the links for the main namespace are automatically displayed by a Mediawiki extension, and the links for other namespaces are stored in Wikidata. You can find [[d:Special:MyLanguage/Wikidata:Wiktionary/Sitelinks|the documentation here]] (feel free to help translating it in your language).
 
We would like to know if you encountered problems with the system, if you would have suggestions for further improvements. This could be for example:
* Some automatic links don’t work as expected
* Some problems you encountered with entering links (for non-main namespace) in Wikidata
* Some new features you’d like to have, related to links
 
To give feedback, you have two options:
* Let a message on [[d:Wikidata talk:Lexicographical data/Sitelinks|this talk page]]
* Let a message here. If you do so, please mention me with the <nowiki>{{ping}}</nowiki> template, so I can get a notification.
Our preferred languages are English, French and German, but you can also let a message in your own language if you feel more comfortable with it.
 
I’m looking forward for your feedback! [[:d:User:Lea Lacroix (WMDE)|Lea Lacroix (WMDE)]] 10:24, 24 ஏப்ரல் 2018 (UTC)

== Lexicographical data is now available on Wikidata ==
 
<div class="plainlinks mw-content-ltr" lang="en" dir="ltr">
Hello,
 
''Sorry for writing in English. Feel free to translate the content of this message below.''
 
After several years discussing about it, and one year of development and discussion with the communities, the development team of Wikimedia Germany has now released the first version of [[d:Wikidata:Lexicographical data|lexicographical data support on Wikidata]].
 
Since the start of Wikidata in 2012, the multilingual knowledge base was mainly focused on concepts: Q-items are related to a thing or an idea, not to the word describing it. Starting now, Wikidata stores a new type of data: words, phrases and sentences, in many languages, described in many languages. This information will be stored in new types of entities, called Lexemes, Forms and Senses.
 
The goal of lexicographical data on Wikidata is to provide a structured and machine-readable way to describe words and phrases in multiple languages, stored in a same place, reusable under CC-0. In the near future, this data will be available for Wiktionaries and other projects to reuse, as much as you want to.
 
For now, we’re at the first steps of this project: the new data structure has been released on Wikidata, and we’re looking for people to try it, and give us feedback on what is working or not. Participating to this project is the opportunity for you to have a voice in it, to make sure that your needs and requests are taken in account very early in the process, and to start populating Wikidata with words in your language!
 
Here’s how you can try lexicographical data on Wikidata:
* First of all, if you’re not familiar with the data model, I encourage you to have a look at [[d:Wikidata:Lexicographical data/Documentation|the documentation page]]. If you’re not familiar with Wikidata at all, I suggest [[d:Help:Contents|this page]] as a start point.
* You can also [https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Special:AllPages?from=&to=&namespace=146 look at the Lexemes that already exists] (search features will be improved in the future).
* When you feel ready to create a word, go on [[d:Special:NewLexeme]].
* If some properties that you need are missing, you can [[d:Wikidata:Property proposal/Lexemes|suggest them on this page]] (if you’re not sure how to do it, just let a message on the talk page and someone will help you).
* The main discussion page is [[d:Wikidata:Lexicographical data]]. Here, you can ask for help, suggest ways to organize the data, but also leave feedback: if you encounter any bug or issue, let us know. We’re looking especially to know what are the most important features for you to be worked on next.
 
In any case, feel free to contact me if you have a question or problem, I’ll be very happy to help.
 
Cheers, [[:d:User:Lea Lacroix (WMDE)|Lea Lacroix (WMDE)]] 12:20, 23 மே 2018 (UTC)

'''Recent changes'''
* You can now use [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Help:Extension:GlobalPreferences|global preferences]] on most wikis. This means you can set preferences for all wikis at the same time. Before this you had to change them on each individual wiki. Global preferences will come to the Wikipedias later this week. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T16950][https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T189806#4221561]
* It is now easier for blocked mobile users to see why they were blocked. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T165535]
* Wikidata now supports [[d:Special:MyLanguage/Wikidata:Lexicographical data|lexicographical data]]. This helps describe words.
* There is now a checkbox on [[Special:ListUsers|Special:ListUsers]] to let you see only users in temporary user groups. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T174313]
* Some rare invisible Unicode characters have recently been banned from page titles. This includes soft hyphens (U+00AD) and left-to-right (U+2066) and right-to-left (U+2067) isolate markers. Existing pages with these characters will soon be moved by a script. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T121979]
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] There's a new Wikimedia Foundation team to support the Wikimedia technical communities. It's called the Technical Engagement team. Most of the team members did similar work in other teams before this. [https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2018-May/090016.html]
 
'''Problems'''
* Some translatable pages are showing old translations instead of latest ones. The cause of this issue has been fixed. We will update all pages automatically to show the latest translations. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T195347]
 
'''Changes later this week'''
* There will be a new special page named [[Special:PasswordPolicies|PasswordPolicies]]. This page gives information about the [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Manual:$wgPasswordPolicy|password rules]] for each user group on that wiki. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T174812]
* A new way to see moved paragraphs in diffs is coming to most wikis. This is to make it easier to find the moved paragraphs and the changes in them. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T195375]
* [[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=|Recurrent item]] The [[mw:MediaWiki 1.32/wmf.6|new version]] of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 29 May. It will be on non-Wikipedia wikis and some Wikipedias from 30 May. It will be on all wikis from 31 May ([[mw:MediaWiki 1.32/Roadmap|calendar]]).
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] Wikis can [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Citoid/Enabling Citoid on your wiki|enable Citoid]] to provide automatic reference look-up in the visual editor and the 2017 wikitext editor. This is complex. The tool will now disable itself if the configuration isn't correct. It has warned about this in the JavaScript console since February. Check that your wiki is configured correctly. You can [[mw:Talk:Citoid/Enabling Citoid on your wiki|ask for help]] if you need it. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T186276]
 
'''Meetings'''

See [[mw:Technical Advice IRC Meeting|how to join]].
 
'''Future changes'''
* [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Content translation|Content Translation]] drafts which have not been updated in over a year will be removed. This allows other users to translate those articles. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T189088]
* A survey is collecting information on what users think about how Wikimedia wiki pages are loaded. This information could be used in future development. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T187299]
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] Some wikis will switch to use the [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/RemexHtml|Remex parsing library]]. This is [[mw:Parsing/Replacing Tidy|to replace Tidy]]. It will happen on 30 May and 13 June. Wikis with fewer than 100 linter issues in the main namespace in all high-priority linter categories will switch. This includes Wikidata.

'''Recent changes'''
* The [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Skin:MonoBook|MonoBook skin]] has been optimised for mobile devices. It now looks different. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T195625]
* [[m:Planet Wikimedia|Planet Wikimedia]] collects blogs about Wikimedia.

[https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T180498][https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2018-May/090036.html]
* Redirect links in [[Special:WhatLinksHere|Special:WhatLinksHere]] now link to the original page and not the target page. This was done earlier and changed the used messages on some pages. This was a problem for wikis that customized the message. A new change fixed this by using the old messages with one more parameter for customization. Wikis that already changed their customized messages will have to move the customization back again. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T189860]
 
'''Problems'''
* You will not be able to edit some wikis between 06:00 and 06:30 UTC on 13 June. You can see if [[phab:T195487|your wiki is one of them]].
* [[m:Special:MyLanguage/MassMessage|MassMessage]] did not work 24–28 May. This is also why last week's Tech News was late. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T195500]
 
'''Changes later this week'''
* [[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=|Recurrent item]] The [[mw:MediaWiki 1.32/wmf.7|new version]] of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 5 June.

== Update on page issues on mobile web ==
 
<div class="plainlinks mw-content-ltr" lang="en" dir="ltr">
'''Update on page issues on mobile web'''
 
{{int:please-translate}}
Hi everyone. The [[mw:Reading/Web/Team|Readers web team]] has recently begun working on exposing issue templates on the mobile website. Currently, details about issues with page content are generally hidden on the mobile website. This leaves readers unaware of the reliability of the pages they are reading. The goal of this project is to improve awareness of particular issues within an article on the mobile web. We will do this by changing the visual styling of page issues.
 
So far, we have [[mw:Reading/Web/Projects/Mobile Page Issues|drafted a proposal on the design and implementation]] of the project. We were also able to run [[mw:Reading/Web/Projects/Mobile Page Issues/Research Results|user testing on the proposed designs]]. The tests so far have positive results. Here is a quick summary of what we learned:
* The new treatment increases awareness of page issues among participants. This is true particularly when they are in a more evaluative/critical mode.
* Page issues make sense to readers and they understand how they work
* Readers care about page issues and consider them important
* Readers had overwhelmingly positive sentiments towards Wikipedia associated with learning about page issues
Our next step would be to start implementing these changes. We wanted to reach out to you for any concerns, thoughts, and suggestions you might have before beginning development. Please [[mw:Reading/Web/Projects/Mobile Page Issues|visit the project page]] where we have more information and mockups of how this may look. Please [[mw:Talk:Reading/Web/Projects/Mobile Page Issues|leave feedback on the talk page]].

'''Recent changes'''
* [[w:en:Syntax highlighting|Syntax highlighting]] has been a beta feature on Wikimedia wikis with text written from left to right. It is now a normal feature. It is based on [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Extension:CodeMirror|CodeMirror]]. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T185030]

'''Future changes'''
* Some old web browsers will not be able to read the Wikimedia wikis. This is because they use an insecure way to connect to them. This means that we get less security for everyone else too. This affects about 0.08% of all traffic to the Wikimedia wikis. This affects for example those who read Wikipedia on a [[w:en:PlayStation 3|PlayStation 3]]. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T147202][https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T196371]
* The [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Edit Review Improvements/New filters for edit review|new filters for edit review]] tools and interface for watchlists will leave [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Beta|beta]]. Because there is no new MediaWiki version this week it will happen on 25 June for most wikis. For the rest it will happen in early July. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T181193][https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T195993]
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] All wikis that have not already done so will switch to use the [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/RemexHtml|Remex parsing library]] on 5 July. This is [[mw:Parsing/Replacing Tidy|to replace Tidy]]. You [https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-ambassadors/2018-June/001867.html can help] fix remaining errors.

'''Changes later this week'''
* [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Content translation|Content translation]] users who translate between any two of Arabic, English, French, Japanese and Russian will be asked to be part of a research project.

This was supposed to already have happened but was delayed. For most wikis this will happen on 9 July. For the rest it will happen on 16 July. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T195993]

* Today all administrators can edit [[w:en:CSS|CSS]] and [[w:en:JavaScript|JavaScript]] for the entire wiki. There will be a new user group for editing CSS and JavaScript. Administrators will no longer automatically be able to do this.

== New user group for editing sitewide CSS / JS ==
 
<div class="plainlinks mw-content-ltr" lang="en" dir="ltr">
''({{int:please-translate}})''
 
Hi all!
 
To improve the security of our readers and editors, permission handling for CSS/JS pages has changed. (These are pages like <code dir="ltr">MediaWiki:Common.css</code> and <code dir="ltr">MediaWiki:Vector.js</code> which contain code that is executed in the browsers of users of the site.)
A new user group, <code dir="ltr">[[m:Special:MyLanguage/Interface administrators|interface-admin]]</code>, has been created.
Starting four weeks from now, only members of this group will be able edit CSS/JS pages that they do not own (that is, any page ending with <code dir="ltr">.css</code> or <code dir="ltr">.js</code> that is either in the <code dir="ltr">MediaWiki:</code> namespace or is another user's user subpage).
 
You can learn more about the motivation behind the change [[m:Special:MyLanguage/Creation of separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JS|here]].
 
Please add users who need to edit CSS/JS to the new group (this can be done the same way new administrators are added, by stewards or local bureaucrats).
This is a dangerous permission; a malicious user or a hacker taking over the account of a careless interface-admin can abuse it in far worse ways than admin permissions could be abused. Please only assign it to users who need it, who are trusted by the community, and who follow common basic password and computer security practices (use strong passwords, do not reuse passwords, use two-factor authentication if possible, do not install software of questionable origin on your machine, use antivirus software if that's a standard thing in your environment).
 
Thanks!

''Sorry for writing this message in English. Feel free to help translate it below.''
 
Hello all,
 
A few months ago, we asked you for feedback about [[d:Wikidata:Wiktionary/Sitelinks|Cognate]], the system allowing interwikilinks between Wiktionaries (on main namespace). Several community members gave some suggestions, one of them was to provide statistics about these interwikilinks.
 
The Wikidata team is pleased to present you the '''[https://wdcm.wmflabs.org/Wiktionary_CognateDashboard/ Wiktionary Cognate Dashboard]''', a website presenting a lot of interesting information about how Wiktionaries are connected to each others. You can find there, for example:
* the most interlinked Wiktionary entries not having a page on your Wiktionary
* the number of interlinks between each possible pair of Wiktionaries
* visualizations of the relationships between different Wiktionaries
 
To learn more about the tool, you can have a look at [[m:Wiktionary Cognate Dashboard|the documentation]] (please help us translating it in your language!). The interface of the tool itself can also be translated in other languages by [[m:Wiktionary Cognate Dashboard/Interface|using this page]].
 
If you find a bug, please let a comment on [[phab:T166487|this Phabricator task]] or ping me onwiki. Thanks a lot, [[:d:User:Lea Lacroix (WMDE)|Lea Lacroix (WMDE)]] 13:08, 14 ஆகத்து 2018 (UTC)

Hi all,
 
as [[m:Special:MyLanguage/Creation of separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JS/announcement 2|announced previously]], permission handling for CSS/JS pages has changed: only members of the <code>[[m:Special:MyLanguage/Interface administrators|interface-admin]]</code> ({{int:group-interface-admin}}) 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 [[m:Special:MyLanguage/Creation of separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JS|Creation of separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JS]].
