Hi! I was reading Strategy/Wikimedia movement/2018-20/Working Groups and one of the requirements was "A good understanding of the landscape of the Wikimedia movement and its structures" and I'll be honest, I have no idea where to start reading about it. I know there's Wikimania, the various projects like Commons, Wikipedia, Wikidata, etc. I know there are mailing lists, although I'm not sure how active people are in those mailing lists. Sprinkle some drama (I'm not sure if knowing a little bit about discussions and "fights" is important) I just get lost in a sea of information. Could someone help me know where to start reading about it, and understand more the WMF, the Wikimedia Foundation, and the people involved? Thanks! Tetizeraz (talk) 02:19, 28 September 2018 (UTC) []

Hi, I have question concerning the text of the Bylaws, Section IV.7, "Any Trustee may be removed, with or without cause, by a majority vote of the Trustees then in office in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 617.0808(1), or other relevant provisions of the Act." What is this Section 617.0808 referred to and where can I find it ? As far as I can see its not specified in the text. Claude J (talk) 16:36, 24 June 2019 (UTC) []

I've been trying to document certain aspects of the WMF here on Meta, and I've been having some difficulty as a result of the lack of data on the jobs and responsibilities of the various WMF employees. It would be quite helpful if the WMF could provide the list of job descriptions of all current WMF staff. Would this be possible? Yair rand (talk) 06:14, 20 August 2019 (UTC) []

Dear friends / admin, (and previously approved admins: @Tgr (WMF):, @BDavis (WMF):)

Can you help approve these OAuth apps:

and remove/delete/reject these Oauth apps:

If this is not the best place to notify admins, can you route me to the right one?

Hello. This is an edit request, to update the boilerplate seen at the top of common.js and other pages, which currently starts out: "Note: After saving, you may have to bypass your browser's cache to see the changes," and continues with a list of per-browser instructions. In the second bullet, which currently says Google Chrome please alter it to say Google Chrome / Vivaldi (or the other way round). Vivaldi is based on Chrome, and the reload feature is the same, but the average user probably won't know that. I have no connection to Vivaldi, but I tried it and am a convert; it's tab-handling (among other things) is a definite productivity enhancer. Mathglot (talk) 22:05, 2 August 2020 (UTC) []

Hi there. I'm an admin and bureaucrat on the Irish Language Wikipedia. The issue we have over there is relatively simple. When MediaWiki was updated some time back, it changed the Toolbar link to point to Commons only for file upload. This is all well and good, but we have a number of users who wish to upload files - particularly book and CD covers - under Fair Use guidelines. We already https://ga.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Uploadtext have a page] which prefaces Special:Upload in the local language to call out the issues around that.

But the fundamental question is - how do we update the toolbar (not the sidebar) to include a link to Special:Upload, alongside the default Commons one. It would be marked 'Local Upload' (Uaslódáil áitiuil). Anyone any ideas? I can updated MediaWiki space, though I'm a bit rusty :)

Hello to all. I am reviewing some pages of a training on the Outreach Dashboard, which transcludes from Meta. Apparently there is a bug in the translation of one of the pages and the code for the div tag appears in the translations, breaking the page there (see here, selecting pt-br as language). The Meta page with the bug is this one. Can someone help me fix this? Thank you in advance! Good contributions, Ederporto (talk) 17:56, 8 February 2021 (UTC) []

I have a question about the editor with citation templates. When I select cite, then select a template, fill out all of the fields and click insert, it still shows the depreciated parameters, which then throws an error. Our admin created a script to run to fix these but it doesn't run very often. When will this be changed? Examples are accessdate= should be access-date= and many others that have been depreciated. Thanks, PDLTalk to me!OMG, What have I done? 19:11, 9 June 2021 (UTC) []

How do I change settings to automatically follow/watch pages I edited once? I currently have this setting in English Wikipedia, but would like this setting to be enabled globally for the different WikiProjects I am on, including here, WikiData, dewp etc..

A few uploads I've done of tif files have a second page of all black. Are there any tutorials or guidance on how to convert an image and upload it without a background (read: transparent) and only a single transparent page to wikimedia (using GIMP)? I've used GIMP to make an alpha channel and delete the background. Then locally the image looks like it has a transparent background, but the second page of all black appears for some reason after upload and sometimes a white background appears after it loads in wikipedia. See en:Charles Stewart (New Jersey politician) and File:Col. Charles Stewart signature.tiff as an example. Engineerchange (talk) 04:34, 27 September 2021 (UTC) []
