Wikidata anchor (sitelink)

Patafisik (talkcontribs)

Hi Lucas, I was reading old discussions and I notice your comment here, I completely agree with you, would it be possible to open a task about this issue? It seems very relevant to me.

Ah, perhaps I misunderstood, I thought the general "sitelinks" anchor led to the "Wikipedia" section (exemple) and this is still not working for me. But now I'm testing with sitelinks-wikipedia and it works. Thank you,

Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE) (talkcontribs)

Yes, we just changed which anchor we linked to.

How we will see unregistered users

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

The canonical copy of the page is moved. Please update the page. I also propose to unprotect the page so that they may be annotated by others.

Really sorry for the inconvenience. This is a gentle note to request that you check your email. We sent you a message titled "The Community Insights survey is coming!". If you have questions, email surveys@wikimedia.org.

You can see my explanation here.

Not yet outdated but probably soon ;)

On Wikibase/DataModel/JSON, in the section globecoordinate, it is written « altitude: Deprecated and no longer used. Will be dropped in the future. » I'm not 100% sure but I think this is outdated and has been dropped now, if I'm right, shouldn't we remove this sentence?

Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE) (talkcontribs)

Well, it’s still in the returned JSON as far as I can tell, just always set to null.

VIGNERON (talkcontribs)

Oh ok, strange but ok. Thanks for the quick answer.

I filed T217431 to get rid of it :)
