SandboxLink[Hlela umthombo]

Hi,

I received a request by email to enable SandboxLink on this wiki.

It's a very simple thing to do, but there is a semi-official policy that configuration changes of this kind are done after the editors of the wiki in question express their public support for it. So, for the sake of proper process I'd like to ask the editors on this wiki to reply here:

Do you want SandboxLink to be enabled here? This means that a link to the "Sandbox" will appear at the top of the page, between "Talk" and "Preferences" ("Ingxoxo yami" and "Amakhethelo ami"). Such a link already appears in the English Wikipedia, and you can see it there.

If you agree, please reply here and say that you support it.

If you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them.

Thank you! --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 15:18, 27 uNtulikazi 2018 (UTC)

Shalom, Amir, and thank you for assisting this process. I'm a yearlong regular contributor to the ZU WP (though not a speaker of isiZulu), and I support the request for enabling SandboxLink. It's likely that new editors will emerge since Wikimania 2018 just wrapped up, and they'll be eager to create draft versions of new pages. -- 18:47, 28 uNtulikazi 2018 (UTC)

This would be a great feature, using Sandbox certainly makes things easier! Mtonihouse 08:07, 01 August 2018 (UTC)

New user group for editing sitewide CSS & JS[Hlela umthombo]

Enabling a helpful feature for Template editors[Hlela umthombo]

Editing of sitewide CSS/JS is only possible for interface administrators from now[Hlela umthombo]

(Please help translate to your language)

Hi all,

as announced previously, permission handling for CSS/JS pages has changed: only members of the interface-admin (Interface administrators) group, and a few highly privileged global groups such as stewards, can edit CSS/JS pages that they do not own (that is, any page ending with .css or .js that is either in the MediaWiki: namespace or is another user's user subpage). This is done to improve the security of readers and editors of Wikimedia projects. More information is available at Creation of separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JS. If you encounter any unexpected problems, please contact me or file a bug.

Thanks!

Machine translation support enabled today for Content Translation[Hlela umthombo]

Please help translate to your language

Hello, machine translation support for Content Translation (beta feature) has now been extended and enabled for users of this Wikipedia, with the inclusion of Google Translate. It can be used when translating Wikipedia articles with Content Translation. To start using this service, please choose Google Translate from the Automatic Translation dropdown menu that you see on the sidebar after you start translating an article.

Please note, machine translation is available from all the languages that are supported by Google Translate, but Content Translation can still be used in the usual manner for translating from all languages, with or without machine translation support. While machine translation exists to aid creation of content conveniently, we would like to emphasise that before publishing, the final content should always be reviewed to avoid errors and ambiguity. We hope that your wiki community will find this new service useful, and that it will help you create more articles in your language.

Wikimedia Foundation and Google have collaborated to work out an agreement that allows the use of Google Translate without compromising Wikipedia’s policy of attribution of rights, privacy of our users and brand representation. For more information, we request you to kindly take a look at the details about machine translation services in Content Translation and about Google Translate translation services. You can also read the main announcement on Wikimedia news. Please note, translations made using Content Translation are also used to improve machine translation services.

We have tested the service for use, but there could be unknown problems that we are not aware of yet. Please do let us know on our Project Talk page if you face any problems using Content Translation. This message is only in English and we will be very grateful if it could be translated into for other users of this Wikipedia.

Thank you. -- On behalf of WMF Language team: Runa Bhattacharjee (WMF) (talk) 16:15, 9 Umasingana 2019 (UTC)

No editing for 30 minutes on 17 January[Hlela umthombo]

You will not be able to edit the wikis for up to 30 minutes on 17 January 07:00 UTC. This is because of a database problem that has to be fixed immediately. You can still read the wikis. Some wikis are not affected. They don't get this message. You can see which wikis are not affected on this page. Most wikis are affected. The time you can not edit might be shorter than 30 minutes. /Johan (WMF)
