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!
Here’s our project page with more information, and the talk page where we’d love to hear any feedback. – Johanna Strodt (WMDE)（留言） 二〇二二年四月一三日 （三） 〇七時五二分 (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)

Coming soon: Improvements for templates[纂]
Hello, more changes around templates are coming to your wiki soon:
The template dialog in VisualEditor and in the 2017 Wikitext Editor (beta) will be improved fundamentally: This should help users understand better what the template expects, how to navigate the template, and how to add parameters.
In syntax highlighting (CodeMirror extension), you can activate a colorblind-friendly color scheme with a user setting.
Deployment is planned for May 10. This is the last set of improvements from WMDE Technical Wishes' focus area “Templates”.
We would love to hear your feedback on our talk pages!

- Hi everyone, as explained above some of us are trying to set up a Wikimedia User Group to promote the use of Ancient Languages on Wikimedia. We are ALPES Ancient Language Promotion, Education and Support – and would really value some strong links with the group writing Literary Chinese.
- We are thinking about some first activities, and use these to really think about what we need from Wikimedia and each other. Would people be up for some exploratory meetings and discussions? The kinds of thing I would really like to know include:
- What are the challenges for your projects?
- How much awareness is there of your work among your language community?
- What are the challenges for your language? What problems do you face?
- What do your projects add for your languages continuity, usage and learning?
- I am sure there are more, but I would really like to document and understand some of this so we can start to be a useful project.
Would a video or voice chat work for people, and if so when, eg what times / days are best? Please join at ALPES Ancient Language Promotion, Education and Support! Alternatively, if a chat room is better, eg Telegram / IRC etc, let me know. --JimKillock（討論） 二〇二一年九月二八日 （二） 〇七時五一分 (UTC)

The Vector 2022 skin as the default in two weeks?[纂]
Hello. I'm writing on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Web team. In two weeks, we would like to make the Vector 2022 skin the default on this wiki.
We have been working on it for the past three years. So far, it has been the default on more than 30 wikis, including sister projects, all accounting for more than 1 billion pageviews per month. On average 87% of active logged-in users of those wikis use Vector 2022.
It would become the default for all logged-out users, and also all logged-in users who currently use Vector legacy. Logged-in users can at any time switch to any other skins. No changes are expected for users of these skins.
About the skin[纂]
[Why is a change necessary] The current default skin meets the needs of the readers and editors as these were 13 years ago. Since then, new users have begun using Wikimedia projects. The old Vector doesn't meet their needs.
[Objective] The objective for the new skin is to make the interface more welcoming and comfortable for readers and useful for advanced users. It draws inspiration from previous requests, the Community Wishlist Surveys, and gadgets and scripts. The work helped our code follow the standards and improve all other skins. We reduced PHP code in Wikimedia deployed skins by 75%. The project has also focused on making it easier to support gadgets and use APIs.
[Changes and test results] The skin introduces a series of changes that improve readability and usability. The new skin does not remove any functionality currently available on the Vector skin.
- The sticky header makes it easier to find tools that editors use often. It decreases scrolling to the top of the page by 16%.
- The new table of contents makes it easier to navigate to different sections. Readers and editors jumped to different sections of the page 50% more than with the old table of contents. It also looks a bit different on talk pages.
- The new search bar is easier to find and makes it easier to find the correct search result from the list. This increased the amount of searches started by 30% on the wikis we tested on.
- The skin does not negatively affect pageviews, edit rates, or account creation. There is evidence of increases in pageviews and account creation across partner communities.
[Try it out] Try out the new skin by going to the appearance tab in your preferences and selecting Vector 2022 from the list of skins.
How can editors change and customize this skin?[纂]
It's possible to configure and personalize our changes. We support volunteers who create new gadgets and user scripts. Check out our repository for a list of currently available customizations, or add your own.
If no large concerns are raised, we plan on deploying in the week of October 3, 2022. If your community would like to request more time to discuss the changes, hit the button and write to us. We can adjust the calendar.
If you'd like ask our team anything, if you have questions, concerns, or additional thoughts, please ping me here or write on the talk page of the project. We will gladly answer! Also, see our FAQ. Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 二〇二二年九月二二日 （四） 〇四時一五分 (UTC)
