(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.

Help identify islands[rætta wikitekst]

Hi! Could you please help identify the islands in c:File:Northeast Faroe Islands 2011.jpg? Are those part of Faroe Islands? If they are, could you please add some notes to its description? Thanks in advance! Takk!--Roy17 (kjak) 6. apr 2019 kl. 17:15 (UTC)

Hi Roy. Congrats! I can assure you, that without any doubt those Isles on the picture are part of Faroe Islands.
Left of center and in the center you see the Island called Svínoy (Pig Island) and right of center is Fugloy (Bird Island) clearly visible.
Here is a link to a map
Especially, the distinct shape of Svínoy leaves no doubt. But if you zoom into the image right of center you will even notice the tiny Fugloy village of Hattarvík, nestled in the bay on the left side of the steep rocky cliffs in the foreground.
Here is a map of Fugloy showing the location of the village:

I hope, this information will be sufficient for you. Best regards.-- 6. apr 2019 kl. 22:21 (UTC)

My Little Pony[rætta wikitekst]

I'm going to create two stub articles about My Little Pony (the toys) and My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic (the TV series), respectively, here in the Faroese Wikipedia. Can anyone help me with translation into Faroese?

By the way, I wish the Faroese Wikipedia had an equivalent of en:Template:Interlanguage link.

My Little Pony <en; da>

{{For|<the 2010 animated television series>|<My Little Pony (2010 TV series)>}}

My Little Pony is a toy line and media franchise mainly targeting young girls, developed by American toy company Hasbro (en). The toy line features ponies with colourful bodies, manes, and a unique symbol on one or both sides of their flanks.

Following the original My Pretty Pony toy that was introduced in 1981, My Little Pony was launched in 1982. My Little Pony have since been revamped several times with new and more modern looks to appeal to a new market. Such relaunches occurred in 1997, 2003 and 2010, respectively.

My Little Pony (2010 TV series) <en; da>

My Little Pony (Enskt: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic; Danskt: My Little Pony: Venskab er ren magi) is an animated television series produced by the 2D animation studio of DHX Studios Vancouver (en) in Canada (previously known as Studio B Productions (en) until 2010) for American toy company Hasbro (en), which oversaw the production of the TV series through its subsidiary Allspark (previously known as Hasbro Studios until 2018). The series is a part of the 2010 relaunch of Hasbro's My Little Pony toy line and media franchise, which is primarily aimed at young girls. American animator Lauren Faust (en) led the development of the series.

In the United States, the series was broadcast on Discovery Family (en) (previously named as Hub Network until October 2014), which is a joint venture between Discovery, Inc. (en) and Hasbro. The Danish dub of the series was broadcast on Boomerang (en) for season 1, but moved to Nickelodeon (en) since season 2. The Faroese dub of the series was broadcast on Kringvarp Føroya's television service.

Update on the consultation about office actions[rætta wikitekst]

Hello all,

Last month, the Wikimedia Foundation's Trust & Safety team announced a future consultation about partial and/or temporary office actions. We want to let you know that the draft version of this consultation has now been posted on Meta.

This is a draft. It is not intended to be the consultation itself, which will be posted on Meta likely in early September. Please do not treat this draft as a consultation. Instead, we ask your assistance in forming the final language for the consultation.

For that end, we would like your input over the next couple of weeks about what questions the consultation should ask about partial and temporary Foundation office action bans and how it should be formatted. Please post it on the draft talk page. Our goal is to provide space for the community to discuss all the aspects of these office actions that need to be discussed, and we want to ensure with your feedback that the consultation is presented in the best way to encourage frank and constructive conversation.

Please visit the consultation draft on Meta-wiki and leave your comments on the draft’s talk page about what the consultation should look like and what questions it should ask.

Thank you for your input! -- The Trust & Safety team 16. aug 2019 kl. 08:03 (UTC)

Sorry, for writing this text in English. If you could help to translate it, it would be appreciated.

You might know the new interface for edit conflicts (currently a beta feature). Now, Wikimedia Germany is designing an additional interface to solve edit conflicts on talk pages. This interface is shown to you when you write on a discussion page and another person writes a discussion post in the same line and saves it before you do. With this additional editing conflict interface you can adjust the order of the comments and edit your comment. We are inviting everyone to have a look at the planned feature.

Hello. Apologies if you are not reading this message in your native language. Please help translate to your language if necessary. Thank you!

There are a lot of conversations happening about the future of our movement names. We hope that you are part of these discussions and that your community is represented.

Our goal in this call for feedback is to hear from across the community, so we encourage you to participate in the survey, the open letter, or both. The survey will go through 7 July in all timezones. Input from the survey and discussions will be analyzed and published on Meta-Wiki.

Thanks for thinking about the future of the movement, --The Brand Project team, 2. jul 2020 kl. 19:44 (UTC)
