Adding a fontEdit

Hi all! Is it possible to expand the list of fonts for Wikipedia? I just made a SVG map with linear letter B and it is not displayed correctly (it is not displayed at all in the viewer - there are only squares). I myself installed this font on my PC [1] and used it to make a map. In general, is it possible to add a new font to Wikipedia at all? Can this font be used?Пётр Тарасьев (talk) 13:55, 23 November 2022 (UTC)

@Пётр Тарасьев: We basically require OSI licensed fonts which are available as Debian packages by Debian. Or you may convert letters to vector paths in your SVG file (which makes easily editing characters harder). --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 09:36, 24 November 2022 (UTC)
Thanks for the answer)))) Пётр Тарасьев (talk) 14:01, 24 November 2022 (UTC)

Namespace naming changesEdit

We're discussing changes related to renaming some namespaces and system messages for the Mongolian Wikipedia as part of a drive to improve consistency in translations/content. In the event of a change in namespace, I presume all links to the old ones (such as category, talk pages etc.) would fail? How can we best manage this - we have the option to run a bot to automate and replace everything - but could we request, say, some custom namespace aliases? chinneeb-talk 13:14, 6 December 2022 (UTC)

@Chinneeb: Namespace aliases are possible per wikitech:Wikimedia site requests#Change a namespace. For requesting changes itself, see m:Requesting wiki configuration changes. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 14:44, 6 December 2022 (UTC)

CfA Wikipedia In Residence PageEdit

Hi, kindly assist me with the Home page & Community Process page for Code for Africa wiki-meta page. The Community Process page is a repetition of the Home page, keep the community page but it should be empty and let information on Home page be maintained. Also when this has been fixed kindly show me how it is done or if there is a documentation available let me have it. Thanks Jwale2 (talk) 17:35, 6 December 2022 (UTC)

@Jwale2: Hi, could you elaborate please what exactly to assist with or "fix"? What happens currently, and what do you expect to happen instead? If you refer to the navigation header, you can edit its links on Template:Wikipedia In Residence Community, however I'm not sure why you'd want to link empty pages, or have duplicated pages? But maybe I misunderstand... Thanks, --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 19:02, 6 December 2022 (UTC)
Hi @AKlapper (WMF), what I meant was that when you click on the Community Process page you will be redirected to the home page, it provides you the same information as the home page. when you check the edit page for both, they provide {{Wikipedia In Residence Community|active=1}}, instead of {{Wikipedia In Residence Community|active=1}} and {{Wikipedia In Residence Community|active=2}}. if there could be something done to make the changes that will be great. Jwale2 (talk) 03:41, 7 December 2022 (UTC)
@Jwale2: You could rename the Home page to Community Process page. Problem solved and way less confusion ("Why does the Community Process page bring me to the home page? This is broken!") for anyone coming to those pages. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 07:54, 7 December 2022 (UTC)
Hi @AKlapper (WMF), please it seems my question has still not been solved and I don't really know how I can put it across again.Jwale2 (talk) 22:27, 7 December 2022 (UTC)
@Jwale2: I'd just remove the "Home" item. I did that now in https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template%3AWikipedia_In_Residence_Community&type=revision&diff=24185994&oldid=24181741 .
