Technical news

  • [Labs: FlaggedRevs] – due to some miscommunications, a lot of people didn’t realize that the FlaggedRevs labs test wiki has been active and waiting for people to poke at it for a month.  The developers need interested people to be set up as local administrators to try out the per-page stabilization settings (accessed via the “protect” tab); by default most pages do not activate FlaggedRevs in the configuration we’re testing for English Wikipedia.

Other news

  • [WikipediaVision] – A student from Helsinki has created “WikipediaVision”, a live visualization of anonymous edits to Wikipedia by location. The site combines Wikipedia’s Recent Changes feed with Google Maps.  Although this seems to have been around for a while, the link has resurfaced after it was exhibited live at MFK in Bern (from April until August).

Did you know …

…that you can even upload home movies to Wikipedia?  Wikipedia’s video support is improving, Wikimedians have even been uploading videos of their children illustrating certain Wikipedia topics.
