Dear interface administrator,

This is Samuel from the Security team and I hope my message finds you well.

There is an ongoing discussion on a proposed policy governing the use of external resources in gadgets and UserJS. The proposed Third-party resources policy aims at making the UserJS and Gadgets landscape a bit safer by encouraging best practices around external resources. After an initial non-public conversation with a small number of interface admins and staff, we've launched a much larger, public consultation to get a wider pool of feedback for improving the policy proposal. Based on the ideas received so far, the proposed policy now includes some of the risks related to user scripts and gadgets loading third-party resources, best practices for gadgets and UserJS developers, and exemptions requirements such as code transparency and inspectability.

As an interface administrator, your feedback and suggestions are warmly welcome until July 17, 2023 on the policy talk page.

Have a great day!

Samuel (WMF), on behalf of the Foundation's Security team 04:32, 8 जुलय 2023 (IST)

The question is which numerals do we use: Devanagari, Romi or Kannada? I think that the only numerals that all Konkani users can read are the Romi (Latin) numerals. Similar situation for month names too. I suppose we could use Konkani month names in the Romi script rather than English names in the Romi script.

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is organizing a call for feedback about community selection processes between February 1 and March 14. While the Wikimedia Foundation and the movement have grown about five times in the past ten years, the Board’s structure and processes have remained basically the same. As the Board is designed today, we have a problem of capacity, performance, and lack of representation of the movement’s diversity. Our current processes to select individual volunteer and affiliate seats have some limitations. Direct elections tend to favor candidates from the leading language communities, regardless of how relevant their skills and experience might be in serving as a Board member, or contributing to the ability of the Board to perform its specific responsibilities. It is also a fact that the current processes have favored volunteers from North America and Western Europe. As a matter of fact, there had only been one member who served on the Board, from South Asia, in more than fifteen years of history.

In the upcoming months, we need to renew three community seats and appoint three more community members in the new seats. This call for feedback is to see what processes can we all collaboratively design to promote and choose candidates that represent our movement and are prepared with the experience, skills, and insight to perform as trustees? In this regard, it would be good to have a community discussion to discuss the proposed ideas and share our thoughts, give feedback and contribute to the process. Following my email discussion with Fredericknoronha, I will be hosting a meeting at 7 pm (IST) on later today i.e 13 February 2021. It would be awesome to have your participation. The meeting link to join is https://meet.google.com/uff-qtdf-ftv. Let me know if you have any questions.

ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ (चर्चायोगदान)

@The Discoverer I found something that needs to be urgently fixed.

Many of the pages related to Christianity have external links from a website called "archgoadaman.org". This link appears like it directs to sections from bible, but clicking the link opens a porn website. For example see the links in ಪಳೆಇಯಾತ್ section of ಹಾಗ್ಗಾಯ್ ಆಚೆಂ ಪುಸ್ತಕ್.

It seems like that website was fine before but has been compromised. Whatever the problems with that website, it's links should not be there on Wikipedia.

Is there a bot that can remove these links in bulk, or should this be done manually by going through categories? I would also welcome @Dcljr's help.

DARIO SEVERI (चर्चायोगदान)

I do not how use a bot to remove the link but I can help to remove manually.

ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ (चर्चायोगदान)

I will start removing manually as well since I too don't know how to use a bot. Anyways leftover links can be removed by bot later. I have found that links to this website are present not only as external links but in references too.

Anyone who wants to help can find most of the pages needing cleanup in these categories (I have updated this after few hours of posting and removed categories I have already cleaned) -

वर्ग:देवाचें उतर

वर्ग:Devachem Utor

In the वर्ग:देवाचें उतर category, I have cleaned in ascending order till तोबिताचें पुस्तक.

AVSmalnad77 (उलयात) 17:04, 15 नोव्हेंबर 2020 (IST)

DARIO SEVERI (चर्चायोगदान)

I think we've already removed them all.

The Discoverer (चर्चायोगदान)

@AVSmalnad77, thanks for highlighting this. That was the old URL of the Archdiocese of Goa and Daman, which has since moved to archgoadaman.com . The Konkani Bible was hosted on that site, so it was used as a reference for quotations from the Bible. I will try to see how to remove the link from all the pages.
