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)

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.

Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globally[rætta wikitekst]

Please help translate to your language

Hello everyone,

I apologize for posting in English. I would like to inform everyone that I created a new global request for comment (GRFC) at Meta Wiki, which may affect your project: m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

In this GRFC, I propose that two-project shortcuts for project names will become a default alias for the project namespace. For instance, on all Wikipedias, WP will be an alias to the Wikipedia: namespace (and similar for other projects). Full list is available in the GRFC.

This is already the case for Wikivoyages, and many individual projects asked for this alias to be implemented. I believe this makes it easier to access the materials in the project namespace, as well as creating shortcuts like WP:NPOV, as well as helps new projects to use this feature, without having to figure out how to request site configuration changes first.

As far as I can see, Wikipedia currently does not have such an alias set. This means that such an alias will be set for you, if the GRFC is accepted by the global community.

I would like to ask all community members to participate in the request for comment at Meta-Wiki, see m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions about this proposal.

Best regards,

Universal Code of Conduct – 2021 consultations[rætta wikitekst]

Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2[rætta wikitekst]

Please help translate to your language

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a universal baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire Wikimedia movement and all its projects. The project is currently in Phase 2, outlining clear enforcement pathways. You can read more about the whole project on its project page.

Drafting Committee: Call for applications[rætta wikitekst]

The Wikimedia Foundation is recruiting volunteers to join a committee to draft how to make the code enforceable. Volunteers on the committee will commit between 2 and 6 hours per week from late April through July and again in October and November. It is important that the committee be diverse and inclusive, and have a range of experiences, including both experienced users and newcomers, and those who have received or responded to, as well as those who have been falsely accused of harassment.

To apply and learn more about the process, see Universal Code of Conduct/Drafting committee.

2021 community consultations: Notice and call for volunteers / translators[rætta wikitekst]

From 5 April – 5 May 2021 there will be conversations on many Wikimedia projects about how to enforce the UCoC. We are looking for volunteers to translate key material, as well as to help host consultations on their own languages or projects using suggested key questions. If you are interested in volunteering for either of these roles, please contact us in whatever language you are most comfortable.

To learn more about this work and other conversations taking place, see Universal Code of Conduct/2021 consultations.
