Please (semi)-protect Template:MainPage/styles.css[eedit soorce]

(apologies for English) I've rewritten the Main Page to use TemplateStyles, which will make it work better on small screens and easier to edit in the future. However the new page uses Template:MainPage/styles.css which is not yet protected. Much of the rest of the Main Page is only semi-protected, so that should be enough here too. (I would have posted at Wikipedia:Requests for page protection, but that page doesn't appear to be used). The wub (tauk) 17:16, 6 Mey 2020 (UTC)

Annual contest Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos[eedit soorce]

Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (WPWP)

This is to invite you to join the Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (WPWP) campaign to help improve Wikipedia articles with photos and win prizes. The campaign starts today 1st July 2020 and closes 31st August 2020.

The campaign primarily aims at using images from Wikimedia Commons on Wikipedia articles that are lacking images. Participants will choose among Wikipedia pages without photo images, then add a suitable file from among the many thousands of photos in the Wikimedia Commons, especially those uploaded from thematic contests (Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth, Wiki Loves Folklore, etc.) over the years.

Please visit the campaign page to learn more about the WPWP Campaign.

With kind regards,

Thank you,

Feedback on movement names[eedit soorce]

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

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.

Since 16 June, the Foundation Brand Team has been running a survey in 7 languages about 3 naming options. There are also community members sharing concerns about renaming in a Community Open Letter.

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, 19:42, 2 Julie 2020 (UTC)

Note: The survey is conducted via a third-party service, which may subject it to additional terms. For more information on privacy and data-handling, see the survey privacy statement.

Bot flag request for NadzikBOT[eedit soorce]

Hi! 'Allo! I recently discovered your wiki through Small Wiki Monitoring Team. I would like to request bot flag for NadzikBOT (collogue · contreebs).

  • Bot: NadzikBOT (flags on,
  • Owner: Nadzik (Meta-Wiki page; other projects).
  • Basic tasks that I plan to perform:
  • Tools that I will use:
    • Auto Wiki Browser
    • Java Script Wiki Browser
    • WPCleaner
  • Operational mode: semi-automatic via the above-mentioned tools, supervised by me.
  • Approval: if there won't be opposition, I will:
    • Ask the Stewards to assign the bot flag to NadzikBOT (as there are no local Bureaucrat),
    • Perform the above-mentioned tasks. I will consult adding new tasks to the bot account.

Thank you for your time. Please let me know if you would like to ask me any questions. Please use {{ping}}, as this is not my main project and I can miss your answer. Cheers! Nadzik (tauk) 10:51, 7 Julie 2020 (UTC)

Tagging AmaryllisGardener (collogue · contreebs), as we discussed it earlier already. Cheers! Nadzik (tauk) 10:51, 7 Julie 2020 (UTC)
