Planvenguda sus la Wikimedia Meta wiki, un wiki per la coordinacion dels projèctes Wikimèdia.

Lo Meta actualament a tres fonccions diferentas:

  1. Discutida e formacioc dels projèctes de Wikimedia, e en particular discutida de politicas.
  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. Un forom pels ensatges personals suls projèctes de Wikimedia (pas necessàriament NPOV).

The categories provide a big-picture representation of Meta's content.

Çò que lo Meta es pas

Lo Meta es pas un lòc per d'articles incorregibles d'altras Wikipèdias, ni un ostatge per ensatges personals de tot tipe. Se çò que cercatz es una comunautat basada en wiki, vesètz la lista de las comunautats de MeatballWiki. Se cercatz d'espaci oèb gratis, vesètz aquesta lista. Se volètz montar vòstra pròpia wiki, vesètz la lista de [motors wiki].


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.


Primièrament creat amb lo nom "Meta-Wikipedia" en Novembre de 2001, originalament axada vèrs la Wikipèdia anglesa, lo Meta, dempuèi sas actualisacions, es vengut un forom multilinga per totas las comumautats Wikimedia.
