2018 renewal of administrator status for User:YaganZ[+/-]
Hello to all contributors to Victionarium. Thank you for keeping our project alive.
These days my 1-year temporary sysop status is about to expire and I'm going to ask for a renewal.
I'm still the sole administrator here, and I think, there should be at least some person to keep an eye on this project regularly. This will help to block vandalism and SPAM immediately by local intervention.
In addition to my contributions as a normal user, there's a lot of maintenance to be done. For this purpose sysop rights are very helpful, for it's occasionally necessary to update imported scripts, to delete pages or to modify system pages.
I'm looking forward to your proposals and objections.
Thank you and best regards

Update on page issues on mobile web[+/-]
Update on page issues on mobile web
Please help translate to your language
Hi everyone. The Readers web team has recently begun working on exposing issue templates on the mobile website. Currently, details about issues with page content are generally hidden on the mobile website. This leaves readers unaware of the reliability of the pages they are reading. The goal of this project is to improve awareness of particular issues within an article on the mobile web. We will do this by changing the visual styling of page issues.
So far, we have drafted a proposal on the design and implementation of the project. We were also able to run user testing on the proposed designs. The tests so far have positive results. Here is a quick summary of what we learned:
- The new treatment increases awareness of page issues among participants. This is true particularly when they are in a more evaluative/critical mode.
- Page issues make sense to readers and they understand how they work
- Readers care about page issues and consider them important
- Readers had overwhelmingly positive sentiments towards Wikipedia associated with learning about page issues
Our next step would be to start implementing these changes. We wanted to reach out to you for any concerns, thoughts, and suggestions you might have before beginning development. Please visit the project page where we have more information and mockups of how this may look. Please leave feedback on the talk page.

Temporary administrator status[+/-]
Hey. I would like to ask the community for temporary admin status to help with the interface. In internal Affairs I'm not going to climb, but only fix some JS and CSS. I am an administrator in large projects (in many). Thanks. OlegCinema (disputatio) 05:41, 2 Iulii 2018 (UTC)
- I'm grateful you trust me. So that everyone can speak, I'll make a request in a week. OlegCinema (disputatio) 12:47, 2 Iulii 2018 (UTC)
Wiktionary Cognate Dashboard[+/-]
Screenshot of the Hub view
Sorry for writing this message in English. Feel free to help translate it below.
A few months ago, we asked you for feedback about Cognate, the system allowing interwikilinks between Wiktionaries (on main namespace). Several community members gave some suggestions, one of them was to provide statistics about these interwikilinks.
The Wikidata team is pleased to present you the Wiktionary Cognate Dashboard, a website presenting a lot of interesting information about how Wiktionaries are connected to each others. You can find there, for example:
- the most interlinked Wiktionary entries not having a page on your Wiktionary
- the number of interlinks between each possible pair of Wiktionaries
- visualizations of the relationships between different Wiktionaries
To learn more about the tool, you can have a look at the documentation (please help us translating it in your language!). The interface of the tool itself can also be translated in other languages by using this page.
If you find a bug, please let a comment on this Phabricator task or ping me onwiki. Thanks a lot, Lea Lacroix (WMDE) 13:08, 14 Augusti 2018 (UTC)
Selection of the Tremendous Wiktionary User Group representative to the Wikimedia Summit 2019[+/-]
Sorry for posting this message in English and last minute notification. The Tremendous Wiktionary User Group could send one representative to the Wikimedia Summit 2019 (formerly "Wikimedia Conference"). The Wikimedia Summit is an yearly conference of all organizations affiliated to the Wikimedia Movement (including our Tremendous Wiktionary User Group). It is a great place to talk about Wiktionary needs to the chapters and other user groups that compose the Wikimedia movement.
For context, there is a short report on what happened last year. The deadline is very close to 24 hrs. The last date for registration is 17 December 2018. As a last minute effort, there is a page on meta to decide who will be the representative of the user group to the Wikimedia Summit created.
Please feel free to ask any question on the wiktionary-l mailing list or on the talk page.
For the Tremendous Wiktionary User Group,
