Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globallyBewirk
Help mit 't euverzètte nao dien spraok
I apologize for posting in English. I would like to inform everyone that I created a new global request for comment (GRFC) at Meta Wiki, which may affect your project: m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.
In this GRFC, I propose that two-project shortcuts for project names will become a default alias for the project namespace. For instance, on all Wikipedias, WP will be an alias to the Wikipedia: namespace (and similar for other projects). Full list is available in the GRFC.
This is already the case for Wikivoyages, and many individual projects asked for this alias to be implemented. I believe this makes it easier to access the materials in the project namespace, as well as creating shortcuts like WP:NPOV, as well as helps new projects to use this feature, without having to figure out how to request site configuration changes first.
As far as I can see, Wikipedia currently does not have such an alias set. This means that such an alias will be set for you, if the GRFC is accepted by the global community.
I would like to ask all community members to participate in the request for comment at Meta-Wiki, see m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.
Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions about this proposal.
Hello! Sorry for writing in English! I’ve been trying to find out if it’s allowed to use other varieties of Moselle Franconian in the Luxembourgish Wikipedia. I’ve also been trying to figure out if there is or has been a request for a Moselle Franconian Wikipedia edition. Unfortunately I haven’t received any response yet by contributors of the Luxembourgish Wikipedia. Does anyone here know something about it? --Son-of-my-comfort (euverlègk) 27 fib 2021 13:40 (CET)
- The Luxembourgish Wikipedia strictly follows the orthography which is official in Luxembourg. As such, other Moselle Franconian varieties are effectively ruled out to get their own Wikipedia (as the code "lb"/"ltz" is the only applicable code and it is reserved for Luxembourgish). In other words, you can try to request a separate Moselle Franconian Wikipedia, but most likely this will not be approved. In such cases, only Incubator Plus on Miraheze will host it for free, with images from Commons accessible. --OosWesThoesBes (euverlègk) 27 fib 2021 14:02 (CET)

Universal Code of Conduct – 2021 consultationsBewirk
Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2Bewirk
Help mit 't euverzètte nao dien spraok
The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a universal baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire Wikimedia movement and all its projects. The project is currently in Phase 2, outlining clear enforcement pathways. You can read more about the whole project on its project page.
Drafting Committee: Call for applicationsBewirk
The Wikimedia Foundation is recruiting volunteers to join a committee to draft how to make the code enforceable. Volunteers on the committee will commit between 2 and 6 hours per week from late April through July and again in October and November. It is important that the committee be diverse and inclusive, and have a range of experiences, including both experienced users and newcomers, and those who have received or responded to, as well as those who have been falsely accused of harassment.
To apply and learn more about the process, see Universal Code of Conduct/Drafting committee.
2021 community consultations: Notice and call for volunteers / translatorsBewirk
From 5 April – 5 May 2021 there will be conversations on many Wikimedia projects about how to enforce the UCoC. We are looking for volunteers to translate key material, as well as to help host consultations on their own languages or projects using suggested key questions. If you are interested in volunteering for either of these roles, please contact us in whatever language you are most comfortable.
To learn more about this work and other conversations taking place, see Universal Code of Conduct/2021 consultations.
