This is Montreal, not the UK, so Canadian spelling rules hold.

Please add Tulu in languages

In the page for applying for Wikimania scholarships, Tulu language is not included. Tulu Wikipedia became live on Aug 06, 2016. I request the organizers to add Tulu. in the list of languages.--Pavanaja (talk) 03:51, 12 January 2017 (UTC)Reply

See [1] - someone needs to go and translate the app on translatewiki.net first, before the language can be enabled. Legoktm (talk) 03:06, 17 January 2017 (UTC)Reply

My initial response was the same as Legoktm but then I checked and saw that Tulu (tcy) is missing from the "Primary language community on wiki" list. I opened phab:T155666 to track fixing this. --BDavis (WMF) (talk) 20:37, 18 January 2017 (UTC)Reply

I have never been to Wikimania, but this year it is being held near enough that I can easily attend. I would like to know how much it costs to attend.Anne Delong (talk) 01:16, 29 January 2017 (UTC)Reply

Attendance costs CAD $80 for Wikimania proper (Aug 11-13) or $120 for all five days (including the two days of pre-conference events) and includes the cost of lunch; if you buy them before July 8.  ­– Coren(talk) 01:34, 29 January 2017 (UTC)Reply

I'm in the same situation, but at that rate there's no way I can attend. I just want to see the talks but hundreds of dollars I can't do. Adroit (talk) 04:14, 1 August 2017 (UTC)Reply

Missing dates

Is it possible to add the date of the event in the main page ? I had to go to the Programme page to get them. Thanks.

J'accepte Doucoure aboudou (talk) 17:41, 18 June 2017 (UTC)Reply


It would be helpful if the actual dates of the conference can be found on the front page. No where on the front page does it actually state when it is happening. -- KTC (talk) 02:43, 3 February 2017 (UTC)Reply

It was already there in the big background banner, but I realize now that this is both poor accessibility and probably not visible at all on mobile. I've added it to the prose as well.  ­– Coren(talk) 14:31, 3 February 2017 (UTC)Reply

WARNING: Closing the wiki

Hello! With Wikimania 2017 finished, the time has come to close the wiki. Its contents will remain but editting and all other operations will be restricted. This is the standard procedure that we've done with all other Wikimania wikis once the events have finished. I'd like to do this in two weeks from today, unless you need more of course. As such, if you need to do anything before the closure, please do. I've created phabricator:T182493 to track this process. I'll post a warning on MediaWiki:Sitenotice as well. Regards, --MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:49, 9 December 2017 (UTC)Reply
