This newsletter includes two key updates about the Editing team's work:
- The Editing team will finish adding new features to the Talk pages project and deploy it.
- They are beginning a new project, Edit check.
Talk pages project
It will show information about how active a discussion is, such as the date of the most recent comment. There will soon be a new "Lasit fáttá" button. You will be able to turn them off at Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-editing-discussion. Please tell them what you think.
An A/B test for Ságastallanreaiddut on the mobile site has finished. Editors were more successful with Ságastallanreaiddut. The Editing team is enabling these features for all editors on the mobile site.
New Project: Edit Check
The Editing team is beginning a project to help new editors of Wikipedia. It will help people identify some problems before they click "Almmut rievdadusaid". The first tool will encourage people to add references when they add new content. Please watch that page for more information. You can join a conference call on 3 March 2023 to learn more.
Your wiki will be in read only soon[rievdat wikiteavsttain]

Wikimania 2023 Welcoming Program Submissions[rievdat wikiteavsttain]
Graph extension disabled[rievdat wikiteavsttain]
Yesterday the Wikimedia Foundation noted that in the interests of the security of our users, the Graph extension was disabled. This means that pages that were formerly displaying graphs will now display a small blank area. To help readers understand this situation, communities can now define a brief message that can be displayed to readers in place of each graph until this is resolved. That message can be defined on each wiki at MediaWiki:Graph-disabled. Wikimedia Foundation staff are looking at options available and expected timelines. For updates, follow the public Phabricator task for this issue: T334940
Seeking volunteers for the next step in the Universal Code of Conduct process[rievdat wikiteavsttain]
As follow-up to the message about the Universal Code of Conduct Enforcement Guidelines by Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees Vice Chair, Shani Evenstein Sigalov, I am reaching out about the next steps. I want to bring your attention to the next stage of the Universal Code of Conduct process, which is forming a building committee for the Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C). I invite community members with experience and deep interest in community health and governance to nominate themselves to be part of the U4C building committee, which needs people who are:
- Community members in good standing
- Knowledgeable about movement community processes, such as, but not limited to, policy drafting, participatory decision making, and application of existing rules and policies on Wikimedia projects
- Aware and appreciative of the diversity of the movement, such as, but not limited to, languages spoken, identity, geography, and project type
- Committed to participate for the entire U4C Building Committee period from mid-May - December 2023
- Comfortable with engaging in difficult, but productive conversations
- Confidently able to communicate in English
The Building Committee shall consist of volunteer community members, affiliate board or staff, and Wikimedia Foundation staff.
The Universal Code of Conduct has been a process strengthened by the skills and knowledge of the community and I look forward to what the U4C Building Committee creates. If you are interested in joining the Building Committee, please either sign up on the Meta-Wiki page, or contact ucocprojectwikimedia.org by May 12, 2023. Read more on Meta-Wiki.

Announcing the new Elections Committee members[rievdat wikiteavsttain]
We are glad to announce the new members and advisors of the Elections Committee. The Elections Committee assists with the design and implementation of the process to select Community- and Affiliate-Selected trustees for the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. After an open nomination process, the strongest candidates spoke with the Board and four candidates were asked to join the Elections Committee. Four other candidates were asked to participate as advisors.
Thank you to all the community members who submitted their names for consideration. We look forward to working with the Elections Committee in the near future.
On behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees,

Deploying the Phonos in-line audio player to your Wiki[rievdat wikiteavsttain]
Apologies if this message is not in your language, ⧼Please help translate⧽ to your language.
With the inline audio player, you can add text-to-speech audio snippets to wiki pages by simply using a tag:
<phonos file="audio file" label="Listen"/>
The above tag will show the text next to a speaker icon, and clicking on it will play the audio instantly without taking you to another page. A common example where you can use this feature is in adding pronunciation to words as illustrated on the English Wiktionary below.
<phonos file="En-uk-English.oga" label="Audio (UK)"/>

Review the Charter for the Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee[rievdat wikiteavsttain]
I am pleased to share the next step in the Universal Code of Conduct work. The Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C) draft charter is now ready for your review.
The Enforcement Guidelines require a Building Committee form to draft a charter that outlines procedures and details for a global committee to be called the Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C). Over the past few months, the U4C Building Committee worked together as a group to discuss and draft the U4C charter. The U4C Building Committee welcomes feedback about the draft charter now through 22 September 2023. After that date, the U4C Building Committee will revise the charter as needed and a community vote will open shortly afterward.

Temporary accounts for unregistered editors[rievdat wikiteavsttain]

In 2024, editors who have not registered an account will automatically begin using temporary accounts. These editors are sometimes called "IP editors" because the IP address is displayed in the page history.

Coming soon: Referanseforhåndsvisninger[rievdat wikiteavsttain]
En ny funksjon kommer til wikien din snart: Referanseforhåndsvisninger er bobler for referanser. Slike referansebobler har eksistert som lokale tilleggsfunksjoner på mange wikier i mange år. Nå finnes det en sentral løsning som er tilgjengelig på alle wikier, og fungerer sammen med funksjonen sideforhåndsvisninger.
Referanseforhåndsvisninger blir synlige for alle, inkludert vanlige lesere. Hvis du ikke ønsker å se dem kan du deaktivere dem. Hvis du bruker tilleggsfunksjonene Referansebobler eller Navigation Popups vil du ikke se referanseforhåndsvisningene med mindre du slår av tilleggsfunksjonen.
Referanseforhåndsvisninger har vært en betafunksjon på mange wikier siden 2019, og en standardfunksjon på noen wikier siden 2021. Utrullingen planlegges å skje 22. november.
- Prosjektside med mer informasjon (på engelsk).
- Gi gjerne tilbakemeldinger på prosjektets diskusjonsside.
