Improved search in deleted pages archive[edit]

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: 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:

Please note that since Special:Undelete is an admin-only feature, this search capability is also only accessible to wiki admins.

Thank you! CKoerner (WMF) (talk) ١٨:٤٠, ٢٥ جولائی ٢٠١٧ (UTC)

RfC regarding "Interlinking of accounts involved with paid editing to decrease impersonation"[edit]

There is currently a RfC open on Meta regarding "requiring those involved with paid editing on Wikipedia to link on their user page to all other active accounts through which they advertise paid Wikipedia editing business."

Note this is to apply to Wikipedia and not necessarily other sister projects, this is only to apply to websites where people are specifically advertising that they will edit Wikipedia for pay and not any other personal, professional, or social media accounts a person may have.

Please comment on meta. Thanks. Send on behalf of User:Doc James.

नागरी खोतिर सहयोग[edit]

सलाम ओ नमस्कार

नागरी के इस्तिमाल करने वाले कश्मीरियों (मुख्य तौर पर कश्मीरी पंडितों) के लिये कश्मीरी विकिपीडिया की फ़ोर्मेटिंग बेहद खराब है। हाल में लेख लिखने में बहुत तकलीफ आ रही है। इस समस्या को हल करने के लिये क्या राय है? हमें क्या करना चाहिये? अरबी लिपि के साथ साथ देवनागरी भी कश्मीरी भाषा की कंटेम्पररी लिपि है, कम से कम कोंकणी विकिपीडिया की तरह दोनों लिपियों का ही इस्तिमाल होना चाहिये और बराबरी का दर्जा मिलना चाहिये। "Language select" फीचर भी कश्मीरी विकिपीडिया पर उपलब्ध होना चाहिये। कश्मीरी देवनागरी कीबोर्ड भी नहीं मिल रहा हूँ।

इन सब पर जल्द कार्र्वाई किया जाएँ

ऐसा मेरा प्रसाव है, आमसहमति बनाने के लिये

Both Nagari and Arabic are contemporary scripts for the Kashmiri language, it is proposed that a dual format be applied here to allow for the option to read in one or the other, much like as has been done on the Konkani Wikipedia.

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

(Please help translate to your language)

Hi all,

as announced previously, permission handling for CSS/JS pages has changed: only members of the interface-admin (Interface administrators) 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.

No editing for 30 minutes on 17 January[edit]

You will not be able to edit the wikis for up to 30 minutes on 17 January 07:00 UTC. This is because of a database problem that has to be fixed immediately. You can still read the wikis. Some wikis are not affected. They don't get this message. You can see which wikis are not affected on this page. Most wikis are affected. The time you can not edit might be shorter than 30 minutes. /Johan (WMF)
