Template Wizard script available for testingEdit

Hello. I'm contacting you because you voted for the Infobox Wizard in the 2017 Community Wishlist Survey.

The Infobox Wizard has gotten an upgrade - it's now a Template Wizard which works for infoboxes and all other templates. The feature is being developed as an extension (which will allow for localization) but there is a prototype user script which works well.

The Wishlist Team would love it if you could take a few minutes to try the Template Wizard prototype script out and give us feedback on whether it lives up to your expectations. This feedback will help build the script into an extension. To get started, add the following to your Special:MyPage/common.js -

mw.loader.load( '' );

The Template Wizard will show up as a puzzle-piece icon in the 2010 WikiEditor. You can click on the icon to insert a template. Your thoughts are needed on whether it makes sense for the wizard to be available for all users by default or if there should be a preference for it. If it's a preference, what should the default be? Please leave your feedback here. Thank you! -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 22:41, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

JSTOR account redistribution (The Wikipedia Library)Edit

Hi - according to our records you received a free account for JSTOR through The Wikipedia Library. Because we’ve used up all of our allocated accounts, and it’s been some time since they were distributed, we want to redistribute any accounts that aren’t being used to users on our waitlist.

If you’re still using, or plan to use, your JSTOR access, no problem! Simply head over to the Library Card platform, log in, and request a renewal of your account. You should be able to do this from your user page, or the JSTOR signup page. If you can’t find the renewal button, or have any other issues or questions about this, please feel free to leave a message on my talk page. We’ll begin redistributing inactive accounts in September; if you request renewal after then we will only be able to reactivate your account if we have spots remaining. Thanks, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:32, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

The Community Wishlist SurveyEdit


You get this message because you’ve previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey. I just wanted to let you know that this year’s survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until 11 November: Community Wishlist Survey 2019.

You can vote from November 16 to November 30. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won’t send out a separate reminder to you about that. /Johan (WMF) 11:24, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

Hello Checkingfax, this is Chris Schilling. I'm a program officer managing the Rapid Grants program. I had two comments on your feedback on the above proposal:

  • I have moved your comments from the endorsements section to the talk page. The convention in the Grants: namespace is for comments / feedback / general discussion to go to the talk page where applicants can respond to them.
  • Your comments violate the behavioral expectations for community members providing feedback on grant proposals, and I have refactored them accordingly. It is not a problem to express concerns that the budget seems too high, and to request clarity or ask questions about why the budget was prepared in this way. Applicants are expected to respond to these sorts of concerns before we make a funding decision. However, it is not acceptable to accuse applicants of malicious intent, as this effectively drives people away from applying for grants because of a hostile atmosphere. We expect community feedback to be constructive and respectful, and there are productive ways of doing this even when there are concerns about the specifics of a proposal or a budget. If you would like support on providing this kind of feedback in the future, please feel free to reach out, and I will be happy to support you.
