  • 7 April, due to austerity measures, a few wikis had to be shut down. The closure is not permanent. Closures will only be removed when Maamedia receives memory purchases.

The Phabricator retained. The wikis it was decided to keep are: Meta-Wiki, Commons-Wiki, Data-Wiki and Test-Wiki. In addition, English Masymanwiki, Finnish Masymanwiki and Indonesian Masymanwiki were retained. --Mito (talk) 12:34, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
