One year Albanian Wikinews[redakto]
Hello Albanian Wikinews editors,
congratulations, today it is now 1 year since the sq.wikinews.org subdomain was created. From the Wikimedia Incubator & Language Committee, we would like to get some feedback from newer wikis about their situation.
We prepared some questions about what we would like to know. Feel free to answer as many of them as you like.
- How has activity developed after the subdomain's creation? (in comparision with the situation on Incubator)
- Is it now easier to be found by new users? How was the reception of the new wiki: in media maybe? in friends/family circles?
- Were your exceptions in general fulfilled or not?
- Would you have done something in a better/different way in hindsight?
- Is there anything where you say 'This should have been better during the testing phase (Incubator, Langcom)'?
- What was nice/easy/desirable on Incubator? :-)
- Hello MF-Warburg! As the only active editor here I'm going to answer your questions!
- Activity on Albanian Wikinews is very low. For the moment I am the only active contributor here.
- I think that after subdomain's creation it is easier to be found by new users. However we do not have enough users.
- In general, my exceptions were not fulfilled. I excepted to have a lot of users editing this project. I don't think that Albanians don't like this project but they do not know about it.
- No, I have never said that.
- On Incubator you could become a test-administrator easily.
Hello. To facilitate steward granting of bot access, I suggest implementing the standard bot policy on this wiki. In particular, this policy allows stewards to automatically flag known interlanguage linking bots (if this page says that is acceptable), which form the vast majority of such requests. The policy also enables global bots on this wiki (if this page says that is acceptable), which are trusted bots that will be given bot access on every wiki that allows global bots.
This policy makes bot access requesting much easier for local users, operators, and stewards. To implement it we only need to create a redirect to this page from Project:Bot policy, and add a line at the top noting that it is used here. Please read the text at m:Bot policy before commenting. If you object, please say so; I hope to implement in two weeks if there is no objection, since it is particularly written to streamline bot requests on wikis with little or no community interested in bot access requests.
