Universal Code of Conduct Draft Enforcement Guidelines review still needs your ideas and opinions[纂]
Hello, this is just a reminder that the Universal Code of Conduct Draft Enforcement Guidelines are open for review and comment. The Drafting Committee will start working on revisions and improvement in less than two weeks (October 17), so it is important that you give them your ideas and opinions soon!
There is now a short, simple version of the Draft Guidelines here to make your review easier. If possible, also help translate the short version into more languages!
We will also hold one last conversation hour on October 15, 2021 03:00 and 14:00 UTC.
On behalf of the Drafting Committee, much thanks to everyone who has given ideas so far. We hope to hear from more of you - the Guidelines will be much stronger if more opinions are included.

Kartographer coming soon to your wiki[纂]
Apologies for writing in English. It would be great if you could help translate this message.
Hello, the Kartographer extension, a feature for making interactive maps, works on most wikis – but it doesn’t work on this Wikipedia and eight others. (T138057) The reason is that Kartographer has not been able to handle different page revisions so far, so it doesn’t work on wikis that are using the FlaggedRevision extension for page stabilization.
It looks very promising that Wikimedia Deutschland’s Technical Wishes team can soon offer a solution for this problem and will be able to deploy Kartographer to your wiki within the next few weeks. You don’t need to take any action to get Kartographer, but you can prepare for the deployment by
- creating templates that use the
maplinktag, if this is something your wiki wants. They could be based on examples like Template:Maplink from English Wikipedia.
- translating the Kartographer documentation [一] [二] [三] to your language. We’re currently working on it. As soon as it's updated (within the next few days), you can start translating.
- telling others about the feature!
- Hello, a little update on this: We expect that Kartographer will be usable on this wiki on May 24. -- Best, Johanna Strodt (WMDE)（留言） 二〇二二年五月九日 （一） 一三時四〇分 (UTC)
Hi there, I would like to submit an edit protected request for a gadget called Twinkle. The "TW" label text looks pretty big, which is caused by a missing class "vector-menu vector-menu-*-noicon". To fix this problem, I forked this script and made some changes (remove obsolete class, add necessary class), which could be seen at here. Is there any active IA willing to apply this patch? Thanks a lot.
P.S.: Gadget-Twinkle.js and related sub-script need to add support to "vector-2022" skin. Anyone interested in that please go ahead. Stang 二〇二二年三月九日 （三） 一三時一九分 (UTC)
