Disambiguation link notification for February 14[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Paganism, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Pluralism (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Improving references for readability with Wikidata[edit]

Hello, I saw your proposal on village pump, and am really interested in helping make this happen. I'm a designer at WMF and have been working on future ideas to improve the readability of references. I would love to hear your opinion on the ideas there on the talkpage! I've also been working with the Visual Editor team to build a better citation dialogue that makes it easy to add a citation using a template. I wonder how this dialogue to grow in the future help editors easily pull existing Wikidata entries or create new entries. What are your thoughts on this? KHammerstein (WMF) (talk) 19:05, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

@KHammerstein (WMF): Hi, there. Thanks for your support. While there was some interest, I thought my proposal might have died. I would love to further contribute to the discussion on reference readability. And, you're right to bring up the Visual Editor. Any system which allows users to enter less information makes GUI implementation easier. I think what I proposed could be applied to make citation via the Visual Editor far more user-friendly. —Sowlos  19:35, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Feature – Ebola articles[edit]

Electron micrograph of an Ebola virus virion

During August we have translated Disease and it is now live in more than 60 different languages! To help us focus on African languages Rubric has donated a large number of articles in languages we haven't previously reached–so a shout out them, and Ian Henderson from Rubric who's joined us here at Wikipedia. We're very happy for our continued collaboration with both Rubric and Translators without Borders!

Just some of our over 60 translations:
New roles and guides!

At Wikimania there were so many enthusiastic people jumping at the chance to help out the Medical Translation Project, but unfortunately not all of them knew how to get started. That is why we've been spending considerable time writing and improving guides! They are finally live, and you can find them at our home-page!

New sign up page!

We're proud to announce a new sign up page at WP:MTSIGNUP! The old page was getting cluttered and didn't allow you to speficy a role. The new page should be easier to sign up to, and easier to navigate so that we can reach you when you're needed!

Style guides for translations

Translations are of both full articles and shorter articles continues. The process where short articles are chosen for translation hasn't been fully transparent. In the coming months we hope to have a first guide, so that anyone who writes medical or health articles knows how to get their articles to a standard where they can be translated! That's why we're currently working on medical good lede criteria! The idea is to have a similar peer review process to good article nominations, but only for ledes.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
