Willkommen bei Meta!

Meta-Wiki ist die mehrsprachige Webseite über alle Wikimediaprojekte, weshalb auf Meta nicht nur englische sondern auch deutsche Dokumente liegen.

Der Inhalt von Meta verteilt sich auf vier Kategorien: Diskussionen über die Wikimediaprojekte, Veröffentlichungen der persönlichen Essays, Internationale Koordination besonders Übersetzungen und Entwicklung der MediaWikisoftware. Weitere Informationen: Meta:About (en).

Hier sind einige nützliche Links:

Kurz, Willkommen und viel Spass! und vielen Dank fuer deine Uebersetzungen! --Aphaia | WQ2翻訳中 | talk 19:50, 14 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Hallo Aphaia, danke für deine nette Begrüßung. :-) Ich bin zwar schon eine Weile auf Meta dabei, hatte aber bisher nur auf Englisch hier mitgewirkt und zukünftigen Ideen für die MediaWiki-Software erarbeitet.
Heute im IRC haben mich dann einfach ein paar deutsche Wikipedianer lieb gebeten doch beim Wiki-Quatro mitzumachen und so bin ich nun auch da dabei. ;-) Viele Grüße, Arnomane 21:25, 14 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Board of Trustees electionsEdit

Hello!

The Wikipedia Signpost, a community-newspaper in the English Wikipedia, is covering the Board of Trustees elections and will be featuring each of the candidates in next week's issue. As such, we would appreciate it if you would take some time to answer a few interview questions. Each candidate will be asked the same questions; by no means, though, feel obligated to answer any (or even) all of them, though we would greatly appreciate it if you did.

Some of the questions may be a bit redundant to the candidate information you have filled out already. This is both for convenience and for giving you the opportunity to expand on some of them a bit. However, we ask that you keep all responses brief, limiting them to no more than one or two paragraphs each.

You may leave replies to my English Wikipedia talk page, my meta talk page, or email them to me. I would appreciate it if responses are in on or before this Saturday, August 26; please have them in at the latest on Sunday the 27th in order for them to be included in Monday's issue as soon as possible - this is extremely urgent because we're about to publish, and your reply must be in immediately.

As always, the Signpost reserves the right to re-distribute the questions and replies, shorten any responses if necessary, and take any other editorial action deemed appropriate.

Thanks again for your time, and please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions! Flcelloguy (A note?) 21:29, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi Arnomane,

könntest Du eine Kategorie "wiki-en" für englischsprachige Posts anlegen? Dann kann ich einen RSS Feed spezifisch für diese Kategorie in den englischen Planet aufnehmen.--Eloquence 16:53, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Hallo. Erstmal danke für den Wikimedia-Planet (Sowas hatte ich mir schon länger gewünscht :-). Ich probier gerade mit Kategorien herum (bin bislang in der Blogwelt auch nicht so arg bewandert). Weißt du es es bei Wordpress möglich ist einen Feed nach der Schnittmenge zweier Kategorien zu erstellen? Idealerweise dachte ich an "English" und "Wikimedia-projects". Ich hab gerade ein bischen mit den Urls in anderen Wordpress-Blogs experimentiert, aber es wollte mir nicht gelingen einen derartigen Feed zu basteln. Wenn es nicht geht erstelle ich freilich eine "wiki-en" (oder änlich lautende) Kategorie. Arnomane 17:19, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
Ich glaube Schnittmengen-Feeds gehen nicht. :-( --Eloquence 17:29, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
Ok. So ich hab das jetzt mal mit den Kategorien gemacht und ein "wiki-en" (neben anderen) erstellt. Jetzt sollte es denke ich soweit passen (Link siehe Projektseite). Arnomane 18:01, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
