The Maamedia Forum is a central place for questions, announcements and other discussions about the Maamedia and its wikis. (For discussion about the Meta wiki, see Meta:Babel.)
This is not the place to make technical queries regarding the MediaWiki software; please ask such questions at the MediaWiki support desk; technical questions about Maamedia (or Wikimedia) wikis, however, can be placed on Tech page.

IRC[edit | edit source]

The Freenode staff (we have Freenode in use) has left Freenode. As a result, Wikimedia and Miraheze, for example, are also switching out of IRC. Either of these will apparently move to Libera Chat, but I also have a better solution in terms of security and privacy: let’s go and set up my own channel on Discord? Alternatively, we (me and Puma) can develop our own discussion channel. However, I think the Discord is good and we can get out of it. There we can set up several channels, Stewards own, Masymanwiki own and so on. What suggestions do others have? --Mito (talk) 14:00, 23 May 2021 (UTC)

I also heard somewhere that Freenode staff has left. I was then wondering what alternatives we'll use and the Discord looks the better option here. I'll go for Discord! Lapdahtalk⟩ 17:15, 23 May 2021 (UTC)
Okay! I’m going to get to know now what everything Discord has to offer. Maybe tomorrow, with good luck, I have already created a Discord channel. Mito (talk) 18:05, 23 May 2021 (UTC)

We use now Discord! See channels on page Discord/Channels. I will update page today later. See also (and use) Discord template. --Mito (talk) 06:09, 24 May 2021 (UTC)

I joined the server today! Lapdahtalk⟩ 06:12, 24 May 2021 (UTC)

Maamedia official name’s translate[edit | edit source]

Hello Maamedians, I would like to request for approve of Maamedia wikis’ official Chinese translations.

English name: Maamedia
Chinese name: 曼媒體 (Google translate: Man media)

English name: Masymanwiki
Chinese name: 維基指南 (Google translate: Wiki Guide)

English name: Commons-Wiki
Chinese name: 媒體同享維基 (Google translate: Media Sharing Wiki)

What do you think about these translations? --Lightbulb12 (talk) 09:25, 9 June 2021 (UTC)

Can’t we use the name “Maamedia” in all languages because it bends strangely in different languages. For example, in Finnish it can mean, among other things, "Earth Media". Those translations of a certain are also good, and will certainly drive the matter. --Mito (talk) 09:52, 9 June 2021 (UTC)
I have nothing to say here :) Masluts (talk) 15:22, 9 June 2021 (UTC)
