Following a request for comment, the WP:SISTER style guideline now states that in the mainspace, interwiki links to Wikinews should only be made as per the external links guideline. This generally means that within the body of an article, you should not link to Wikinews about a particular event that is only a part of the larger topic. Wikinews links in "external links" sections can be used where helpful, but not automatically if an equivalent article from a reliable news outlet could be linked in the same manner.
Past: State of the Map, the OpenStreetMap equivalent of Wikimania, was held in Milan from 28-30 July. There were two meetups on interactions between Wikimedia and OSM, and Wikidata was mentioned in several sessions, including:
The MediaWiki version that was released two weeks ago was late to some Wikimedia wikis. This was because of bugs. It was on all wikis 30 July. 
Changes later this week
The new version of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 7 August. It will be on non-Wikipedia wikis and some Wikipedias from 8 August. It will be on all wikis from 9 August.

I've tried to add the aggregated military expenditure of the European Union. Including source as stated below.
After this change and someone else's change, which both were reverted, the page is stated as permanent. Which is is not since the information changes over time.
This information is relevant in several ways:
- Mr Trumps statement on 2% NATO defense budget
Rationale: NATO predominantly exists of US and EU countries
- Mr Trumps statement of exiting the NATO, hence placing the EU in a position where they are forced to unite military forces
- EU long term process of unification and advancing EU wide collaboration on military.
Hi TNT! I just wanted to thank you for all of your help here on Wikipedia! I do have another question if you don't mind. I followed your advice and posted on the "Wikipedia talk:External links/Noticeboard" about my project a few weeks ago, but I haven't received any feedback. My post is under "Feedback on Project!" Do you have any advice on what to do next?Rcar01 (talk) 21:26, 10 August 2018 (UTC)
Latest tech news from the Wikimedia technical community. Please tell other users about these changes. Not all changes will affect you. Translations are available.
CSS in templates can now be stored in a separate page on all wikis. This is called TemplateStyles. This is to make it easier to edit how templates look.

You are very kind, sir. I have read your note and I was shocked to know that you have felt sorry for me. Well it was my mistake that I didn't added citations with my edits. Next time I will be a little attentive. Thank you, Sir Sreeveen (talk) 07:01, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
