ADA standard on WikipediaEdit

Hi everyone,

As interface administrator on Serbian Wikipedia, I wanted to ask something that has been brought up to my attention on our Wikipedia. Question came up where members are wondering if and when is Wikipedia going to be setting up to follow ADA standards ? From what I was able to find "The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires certain businesses to make accommodations for people with disabilities. Web content should be accessible to blind users, deaf users and those who must navigate by voice, screen readers or other assistive technologies."

Please, advise of what is happening in regards to this matter so I can "report" it to Serbian community.

Thanks !

Rfc linkEdit

I started the Rfc but instead of the name of the comment request I only have the name of my page Mikola22. So I don't know on which page I must open the Rfc? Mikola22 (talk) 19:33, 31 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Special:GlobalWatchlist does not work for wiktionary.orgEdit

I have and as entries in the settings, but I get for each one the following error message as a popup on the right upper corner of the screen (here the error for the german wiktionary):
„An API error occurred while interacting with "": Could not connect to the server. Make sure you have a working internet connection and try again.“
All other entries are working: commons, wikipedia, meta, data, media...

Unable to reset password for my Ultranet account on

The email doesn't arrive.

P.S. en account got renamed to Ultranet~enwiki, which i find ridiculous, and now crh account can't be merged with it either. The email address should be the same for both, but maybe the system removed it while renaming en account? Ultranet~enwiki (talk) 13:17, 2 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
