Open letter on Community Health[edit]

please consider signing an open letter to the Foundation about Community Health, Open letter on Community Health. Slowking4 (talk) 13:47, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

I foresaw the current state of affairs 10 years ago. Wikipedia is inherently flawed, and no action plan will remedy that. Guido den Broeder (talk) 22:44, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
we work with the wiki as it is, not as we would wish it to be. Slowking4 (talk) 05:18, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
So I noticed. That's why I didn't sign. Guido den Broeder (talk) 00:08, 10 November 2018 (UTC)
We are in desperate need of this.. Alexis Jazz (talk) 09:31, 24 November 2018 (UTC)

Hey everyone,

The Community Wishlist Survey is the process when the Wikimedia communities decide what the Wikimedia Foundation Community Tech should work on over the next year.

The Community Tech team is focused on tools for experienced Wikimedia editors. The communities have now posted a long list of technical proposals. You can vote on the proposals from now until 30 November. You can read more on the wishlist survey page.

Advanced Search[edit]

Advanced Search will become a default feature on your wiki on November 28. This new interface allows you to perform specialized searches on the search page, even if you don’t know any search syntax. Advanced Search originates from the German Community’s Technical Wishes project. It's already a default feature on German, Arabic, Farsi and Hungarian Wikipedia. Besides, more than 40.000 users across all wikis have tested the beta version. Feedback is welcome on the central feedback page.
