French Wiktionary edit

Hi ! The messages for french Wiktionary should be put on

[[Wiktionnaire:Wikidémie/{{#time:F Y}}]]

I changed it on the page, this gives

but I'm not sure if a dynamically changing link is correct for you. --ArséniureDeGallium 18:41, 21 December 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The bot parses on the local wiki, not this wiki. So it might look wrong/link incorrectly, but it will post to the proper place. --MZMcBride 20:22, 21 December 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The "#time" parser function now supports specifying a language, so the link now works properly. --MZMcBride 16:52, 27 December 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks. --ArséniureDeGallium 09:50, 5 January 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Danish Wikipedia edit

Danish Wikipedia's Village Pump has a nifty system where each section is on its own subpage, linked from the VP through a template: {{Brønd|Overskrift=}} with the subpage name after the "=". Someone will fix it if you post directly in the VP, but please don't repost just because your message has been moved... :-) --Palnatoke 23:52, 21 December 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Russian Wikipedia edit

Please note, that at Russian Wikipedia Village Pump new message must be on top of the page (new message shall be inserted before first "\n== " substring, or at the end, if such substring is not found). Vlsergey (talk) 06:39, 20 July 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Split by project? edit

Hmmm, it'd be nice to be able to split this list by wiki family (all Wikipedias, all Wiktionaries, etc.), but using sub-subpages and transclusion will break the current global message delivery bot. Hmmm. Just make sub-subpages and not transclude them? --MZMcBride (talk) 22:31, 13 August 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This would indeed useful, in fact I did that temporarily recently, by hand (or regex) [1][2]. However, one should also be able to split it orthogonally into languages, to distribute translated messages. Regards, Tbayer (WMF) (talk) 22:43, 13 August 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Perhaps the "spam" page could offer two new parameters in addition to "# RECIPIENTS (PAGE LIST)", allowing to filter it by project and language? Regards, Tbayer (WMF) (talk) 15:41, 14 August 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, that would definitely make more sense. Otherwise, if transclusion worked, one could use some LabeledSectionTransclusion magic via row templates etc., but I hope not. --Nemo 13:44, 9 September 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Separated target pages by message type edit

In Hungarian Wikipedia we use many Village Pump pages, but actually message delivery bot can handle only one target page. It would be helpful if we can specify a target page for technical messages and other one for other messages (e.g. localization). It seems to me English Wikipedia has the same problem. --BáthoryPéter (talk) 21:59, 17 October 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is also true for Portuguese Wikipedia. Helder 18:21, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
I agree that this would be fantastic. I've started a list of tech targets, but it's not really usable yet, because technical messages still need to be posted on regular village pumps for projects without a tech page (I could try to maintain a complementary list, but it doesn't seem practical, as there would be a lot of duplication with the main list). guillom 13:05, 2 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry, I'm having difficulty understanding this section. It seems like the most obvious solution is to use/implement better target lists. A tech list, a localisation list, a proposals list, etc. And then only use this massive distribution list for messages that don't fit within another category (site disruptions, e.g.). But perhaps I'm missing why this wouldn't work. --MZMcBride (talk) 07:02, 15 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It would work; I think the point here is that this solution requires to maintain separate lists (which is suboptimal, but not a big problem). guillom 17:31, 17 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Allow addition of user talk pages? edit

I just reverted this edit for various reasons, but I'm wondering if it would make sense, in general, to include a section for user talk pages, offering those Wikimedians who ar interested in getting personal notifications about global messages a chance to sign up for them. Regards, Tbayer (WMF) (talk) 20:41, 4 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Seems reasonable to me. You should be able to add == headers == for section editing without anything breaking. --MZMcBride (talk) 07:00, 15 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Move to Distribution list/MediaWiki message delivery edit

Why not? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 22:24, 22 June 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why? PiRSquared17 (talk) 01:19, 23 June 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Insert as first section edit

The target in German Wikibooks is b:de:Wikibooks:Schwarzes Brett (= bulletin board). We discuss whether new sections should be added at the top of the page via &action=edit&section=0 -- note the parameter '0'. If we decide to do so we want the global message delivery to follow this rule.

  • Is this possible? The question about Russian Wikipedia isn't answered.
  • Where should we announce such a request? Here or anywhere else?
  • Or have we to change the list itself? In which way?

Thanks in advance, Juetho (talk) 10:31, 14 March 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Is there anyone to answer?   -- Juetho (talk) 10:06, 24 March 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No, this is currently not possible with MassMessage. You need to file a new request at Phabricator. Glaisher (talk) 12:53, 24 March 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for the answer, I created the task phab:T94009. -- Juetho (talk) 07:25, 26 March 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ukrainian edit

Is this reaching the right Ukrainian Village Pump? /Johan (WMF) (talk) 21:23, 9 November 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I see TN is on the tech VP there, which is Вікіпедія:Кнайпа (технічні питання), and you may want to ask there instead? --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 12:10, 10 November 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Urdu edit

I think the Urdu link isn't working, the message I sent there last week doesn't seem to be there at least. The link provided for Tech News seems to be working instead. Elitre (WMF) (talk) 14:53, 18 April 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
