Assessments[edit]

Hi Christian75, I've noticed a few of your assessments to Samuel Roker, Jean-Claude Garoute that changed from WikiProject Haiti to the WikiProject Caribbean; we want it to be the former (Haiti). This was most likely unintentional considering you used a gadget. I am just wondering how we can avoid this from happening as it has happened before in the past. Savvyjack23 (talk) 06:32, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi @Savvyjack23:. Thanks for letting me know. Yes its a script named User:Kephir/gadgets/rater.js. And in User:Kephir/gadgets/rater/project-list.js WikiProject Haiti is set as an alias for WikiProject Caribbean. I have asked an admin to change it. (The whole list of aliases include: "Template:WP DR", "Template:WPCARIBBEAN", "Template:WikiProject Dominican Republic", "Template:WPCarribean","Template:WP Caribbean","Template:WikiProject Jamaica","Template:WikiProject Haiti","Template:WikiProject Aruba","Template:WikiProject Martinique","Template:WikiProject Bahamas","Template:WPJamaica","Template:WikiProject Antigua and Barbuda", "Template:WikiProject Barbados", "Template:WikiProject Bermuda","Template:WPCaribbean". Do you know if any of them should be removed too? Christian75 (talk) 18:46, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
Christian75, I appreciate your speedy reply. This would make a lot of sense. As far as I know, the projects mentioned above are all dependent on the Caribbean project as Cuba and Trinidad & Tobago are the only other ones who have been independent for some time and are naturally not listed above. So yes, only Haiti should be removed. Thank you for clearing this up for us! Face-smile.svg Savvyjack23 (talk) 22:27, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

Did you know?

It's quick and easy to insert a references list.

Screenshot showing a dropdown menu with many items

Place the cursor where you want to display the references list (usually at the bottom of the page). Open the "Insert" menu and click the "References list" icon (three books).

If you are using several groups of references, which is relatively rare, you will have the opportunity to specify the group. If you do that, then only the references that belong to the specified group will be displayed in this list of references.

Finally, click "Insert" in the dialog to insert the References list. This list will change as you add more footnotes to the page.

You can read and help translate the user guide, which has more information about how to use the visual editor.

Since the last newsletter, the VisualEditor team has fixed many bugs. Their workboard is available in Phabricator. Their current priorities are improving support for Arabic and Indic scripts, and adapting the visual editor to the needs of the Wikivoyages and Wikisources.

Recent changes[edit]

The visual editor is now available to all users at most Wikivoyages. It was also enabled for all contributors at the French Wikinews.

The single edit tab feature combines the "Edit" and "Edit source" tabs into a single "Edit" tab. It has been deployed to several Wikipedias, including Hungarian, Polish, English and Japanese Wikipedias, as well as to all Wikivoyages. At these wikis, you can change your settings for this feature in the "Editing" tab of Special:Preferences. The team is now reviewing the feedback and considering ways to improve the design before rolling it out to more people.

Future changes[edit]

The "Save page" button will say "Publish page". This will affect both the visual and wikitext editing systems. More information is available on Meta.

The visual editor will be offered to all editors at the remaining "Phase 6" Wikipedias during the next few months. The developers want to know whether typing in your language feels natural in the visual editor. Please post your comments and the language(s) that you tested at the feedback thread on mediawiki.org. This will affect several languages, including: Arabic, Hindi, Thai, Tamil, Marathi, Malayalam, Urdu, Persian, Bengali, Assamese, Aramaic and others.

The team is working with the volunteer developers who power Wikisource to provide the visual editor there, for opt-in testing right now and eventually for all users. (T138966)

The team is working on a modern wikitext editor. It will look like the visual editor, and be able to use the citoid service and other modern tools. This new editing system may become available as a Beta Feature on desktop devices around September 2016. You can read about this project in a general status update on the Wikimedia mailing list.

Let's work together[edit]
