Meta-Wiki Wikimedia


Selamat datang ke Wikimedia Meta-Wiki (sering kali disingkat Meta-Wiki atau ringkasnya Meta), sebuah wiki untuk menyelaraskan projek-projek Wikimedia.Aaaaa


Meta mempunyai tiga fungsi yang berkait rapat antara satu sama lain tetapi melibatkan subset pengguna yang berbeza.

  1. Perbicaraan dan perumusan projek-projek Wikimedia, khususnya perbicaraan mengenai dasar yang berkait untuk seluruh projek, seperti masalah lesen bebas. Tempat pusat untuk perbincangan ialah Wikimedia Forum. Beberapa perbincangan peringkat tinggi, digelar secara utama pada tahun 2009, dipecah ke Strategy Wiki.
  1. A place for interlingual (cross-wiki) and international coordination concerning the Wikimedia projects and the Wikimedia movement in general, including discussion in languages other than English. This includes requests (for pan-Wikimedia or other wikis), translations and news, and the description, documentation, and discussion of real-life activities and facts related to the Wikimedia Foundation and affiliates. See also reports, events, outreach, and grants.
  1. A forum for personal essays about Wikimedia projects. Because these are usually not delivered from a neutral point of view, they should be summarized on neutral issues pages from multiple points of view using formats such as TIPAESA or its subset IPA. There is a degree of freedom in determining what is related to Wikimedia projects, which makes Meta also a meatball wiki of sorts, discussing such matters as wiki culture and patterns. Documentation of MediaWiki is mainly excluded now (see below). This role includes more formal research and related discussion.

What Meta is not

  1. A disposal site for uncorrectable articles from the different Wikipedias
  2. A place to describe the MediaWiki software. The software has its own wiki at Content and pages such as these should be transferred.


It has often been discussed whether Meta has a community. What's sure is that it doesn't have a community of its own, separate from the communities of the Wikimedia projects: as someone said, «a meta-project—existing for and about the other Wikimedia wikis, not as a content project to itself—a community of communities, rather than its own little island community».


This also means that many discussions, processes and other activities happen on Meta, with different participants and people in charge (if any)—for instance, among many, some Wikimedia committees, the stewards, the WMF staff for grants—: none of them, and all of them, is Meta. Meta is the space and the tool for their participants to achieve their objectives, not an actor in them; and even less a power over them.

Strictly speaking, however, there is a community specific to Meta: it's a loose group of people regularly active in some or many such activities (especially as "gardeners"), who care about Meta serving the purpose above, and who are more likely to intervene to ensure it does.


"Metawikian" is a term also sometimes used, to indicate a member of the specific "Meta community", that is the community of Meta regulars who are more often active on Meta, for instance as contributors to its content pages or as facilitators of other discussions and processes.

Asal usul

Meta-Wiki pada awalnya dibangun sebagai "Meta-Wikipedia" pada bulan November 2001 sebagai wadah untuk menjaga agar Wikipedia lebih bersih, dengan cara memindahkan seluruh isi meta (isi mengenai tapak web Wikipedia dan para penggunanya), yang berlawanan dengan isi sebenarnya (rencana ensiklopedia), ke sebuah wiki yang baru. Sejak pemutakhirannya ke perisian MediaWiki untuk Wikipedia, Meta telah menjadi forum perbincangan multibahasa yang digunakan oleh seluruh komun bahasa Wikimedia. Dengan peningkatan jumlah projek dan terjemahan Wikimedia, begitu juga jangkauan Meta semakin meningkat. Sebagai sejarahnya, banyak halaman-halaman lama di Meta yang masih berdasarkan kepada Wikipedia, akan tetapi banyak digunakan ke seluruh projek Wikimedia. Bermawal dari tumpuan pada versi Wikipedia bahasa Inggeris, Meta-Wikipedia telah, sejak diperbarui dengan piranti lunak MediaWiki, telah menjadi sebuah forum perbicaraan pelbagai bahasa yang digunakan oleh seluruh masyarakat bahasa Wikimedia. Dewasa ini, Meta terdiri dari 118,409 rancangan.
