Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globallyУреди
Помозите у превођењу на свој језик
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, Википедија 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.

I am not sure what I didУреди
I just visited the Serbian Wikipedia looking for interlanguage links for SHARE Foundation. I am not really sure what I did, but I might have committed something accidentally. Anyway I received a notice on my Serbian talk page Разговор_са_корисником:BFG which looks like some kind of welcome notice, but I am not sure. If someone could please tell me if I did something I shouldn't have, I would be much obliged. Sorry for any inconvenience I may have unwittingly caused. BFG (разговор) 20:57, 11. март 2021. (CET)
Universal Code of Conduct – 2021 consultationsУреди
Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2Уреди
Помозите у превођењу на свој језик
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 applicationsУреди
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 / translatorsУреди
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.

Hi, I have seen an invitation for participation to your Wikipedia. I am sorry to say that I do not speak your language and I am no real good programmer. I have made some pages of Wu Shuang Pu in different languages and like to create a page in your language, but this still will be a translation of the English version, translated by a machine. In the past this was not good enough for Wikipedia, so I don't dare to do this on my own. Arno Jacobs (разговор) 09:52, 18. септембар 2021. (CEST)
