- en: This is the community discussion page. 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.
As many of you are aware, we are now two months away from the Fundraiser for the Wikimedia Foundation, 2010. We have lofty goals, and we can meet them and exceed them!
The meta translators are already actively engaged in the annual drive to distribute our messages and we encourage you to do the same, but we would like to point everyone to the developments we've made in banner messages- from creation to commentary to the ones that will go live for test and for the drive itself in November. It's one of our goals to make sure that all volunteers know that there is a place for them in the Fundraising drive. We've started the setup on meta for both banner submission, statistical analysis, and grouping volunteers together that would like to find specific focus and work in that area.
This year the Wikimedia Foundation is taking a proactive stance in reaching out to each and every Wikimedia project and volunteer to find innovation, collaboration, and collation of ideas from the community driven process. The staff working on this is comprised of long-time Wikimedians with as much care and concern for the success of this drive as the volunteers, and we want you to actively participate and have a voice.
Use the talk pages on meta, talk to your local communities, talk to others, talk to us. Engagement is what we strive for, without each other we would never had made Wikimedia succeed. Everyone is welcome to contact any of us on staff at any time with a timely response to follow. We actively encourage focusing discussion on meta so we can all work together.
Please translate this message into your language if you can and post it below.
See you on the wiki! Keegan, WMF Fundraiser 2010 03:07, 13 septembar 2010 (KSV)
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.

Bosnian language in English Wikipedia[uredite]
- Thank you for information. I don't really have a clue about this and since I am not here very often, I don't know what to do. Maybe Barishan can do something more, but he's also absent for last few days. -- KWiki (razgovor) 20:02, 13 maj 2013 (KSV)
- Hi Sae. As I understand, only wikis with 50k+ edits (that additionaly passed the "50 random articles" test) have been included on the main page on en.wiki. So unless you mean something else, everything is fine and will be. :) -- Edinwiki (razgovor) 20:36, 13 maj 2013 (KSV)
- Zdravo. Na engleskom Wiktionary "Serbo-Croatian" (srpskohrvatski) se koristi; umjesto srpskog, hrvatskog, bosanskog ili crnogorskog odvojeno. Ima još link na bosanski Vikirječnik u "nedavnima izmjenama" :) Barishan (razgovor) 23:33, 13 maj 2013 (KSV)
- Merhaba. İngilizce Wiktionary'de ayrı ayrı Sırpça, Hırvatça, Boşnakça veya Karadağca yerine "Serbo-Croatian" (Sırp-Hırvatça) kullanılıyor. "Son değişiklikler"de hâlâ Boşnakça Vikirječnik'e bağlantı var :) Barishan (razgovor) 23:33, 13 maj 2013 (KSV)
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.

Projekat: Wiktionary meets Matica srpska[uredite]
Želimo da vas obavestimo projektu koji ima za cilj osnaživanje pokreta za otvoreno znanje i slobodni sadržaj kroz uspostavljanje dugoročnog strateškog partnerstva sa najstarijom srpskom naučno-kulturnom institucijom Maticom srpskom, kao i povećanje kvaliteta, tačnosti i obima Vikirečnika kroz digitalizovanje dva rečnika priređena od strane Matice srpske (Srpski ornitološki rečnik i Rečnik srpskih govora Vojvodine). Ujedno želimo da razvijemo model za buduću saradnju na svim Vikirečnicima i organizovaćemo dve kampanje mobilizacije saradnika Vikirečnika.
Potrebna nam je vaša pomoć i podrška oko aktivnosti u projektu. Želeli bismo da pokušamo da motivišemo što veći broj zajednica oko Vikirečnika da nam se pridruže u prevodu Rečnika leksikografskih termina i Ornitološkog rečnika. Ukoliko uspemo da motivišemo 100 zajednica da učestvuju u projektu, korist za svaki pojedinačni Vikirečnik bit će ogromna - svaki rečnik bi bio obogaćen sa 37000 primarnih odrednica vezanih za Ornitološki rečnik i 10000 vezanih za listu leksikografskih termina.
Nadamo se da će vam projekat biti zanimljiv, jer bismo voleli da uključimo što veći broj volontera/ki. Možete da se pridružite koordinacionom timu i pomognete nam u komunikaciji sa Vikirečnicima na jezicima koje govorite, ili možete da doprinosite svojim znanjem programiranja (Python i/ili PHP).
Ukoliko ste zainteresovani, pridružite nam se na stranama za diskusiju, ili pošaljite mejl Milici (firstname.lastname@example.org) ili Milošu(email@example.com).
Jako nas raduje rad na ovom projektu i iskreno se nadamo da ćete se priključiti!

Compact Language Links enabled in this wiki today[uredite]
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. However, 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. 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)-03:05, 1 juli 2016 (KSV)
