Welcome to MediaWiki.org!

Yes, welcome! This site is dedicated to documenting the MediaWiki software, the software behind many wikis, including that of Wikipedia and the Wikimedia Foundation projects.
Please, take a look at the following pages. They might prove useful to you as a newcomer here:

If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and find this site useful documentation of the MediaWiki software.

Thanks! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 11:33, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

Share your experience and feedback as a Wikimedian in this global surveyEdit

Regarding some files you uploadedEdit

Hi, I deleted those Obama images as they were not used anywhere (and also not related to the MediaWiki development in general!). Personal images (of yourself) is okay, but this wiki doesn't need local uploads of random things that don't follow documentation of MediaWiki software.

Tropicalkitty which files? I didn't get notifications about deletions recently. Note that this is a work account, and as a member of the Wikimedia Performance Team, everything I do on wiki is about MediaWiki development and Wikimedia operations, whether it's obvious or not. With links to the particular files, I would be able to clarify if those are tests that can be safely deleted or if they have some non-obvious long term purpose. Thanks!

Okay. I apologize for deleting those without contacting you or your colleagues first. Tropicalkitty (talk) 06:34, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
