General work

  • [Mid] (ticket) have MDWiki recognized as a "language" of WP
  • Improve "history import tool". For a given page on MDWiki would be nice to be able to state what page from EN Wikipedia it should import from.
  • Fix redirect creation tool as it is unable to import redirects due to them all being mirrored now. Need to build an API fork function.
  • [Mid] (ticket) Install CentralNotice extension [5]

Translation project

Translation dashboard

  • Redirect the EN name to the name of the article in the target language for Or.
  • Change the "target language" entry so that ONLY one of the language of Wikipedia can be choosen. Have it sort based on the language code so that when you entry "ja" Japanese is first
  • A number of the articles listed under "in process" are completed such as "Squamous cell skin cancer"[6]
  • If one puts in "or" and than hits "sign in" the tool should remember the "or" you entered
  • If someone puts in "Or" it should automatically convert it to lower case "or" so that an error is not given
  • Update pageviews. Here it says 39[7] but here it says 288
  • Allow the items displaced in the category box to be different then the category itself. Also add a drop down menu. For example I want to make RTT appear as "General medicine". For the coordinators will want a tab for "campaigns" with options to set category and name in drop down.
Prior data
  • Collect prior data for translation efforts: take all the EN leads that have been developed and determine how many of the leads in other languages are translations of it. This can be determined by finding that the same references are used.


  • Request for CTX improvements (stream lining the process) [8]
  • Fix the issue around missing references. CTX produces[9] and than user needs to add the missing reference tags and re expand the infobox.[10]. Prior ticket from 2018[11]. (ticket 2021)(Still broken in 2022)

Coordinator level

  • Allow certain people to be given "coordinator" status. With this status they can see extra details such as
    • 1) automatically sent encouragements to people to do more translations via their email "Thank you for your prior translation of "X" into "language Y". Since this translation has gone live it has been read by "Z" people. Would you be interested in translating "A"? If so, simply click HERE. Once again thank you for improving access to knowledge."
