Wikimedia notification system
This is a global notification system for all Wikimedia wikis!
If it is necessary to inform many/all wikis about something important, a global notification can be requested at meta:Global notifications/requests. It is possible to have wiki and/or language dependent text within every message.
All Meta notifications are synchronized automatically, either on all wikis or just on specific, selected ones.
To have a common access point, the messages are updated at Naudotojas:WikimediaNotifier/notifications (mirrored, any changes to this page will be overwritten; use a separate page for translation); you can include this page(s) like a template wherever you want, let's say your village pump, with a description in your language!
Have a look on the Frequently Asked Questions to see how it can fit your needs!
- With SynchCrosswiki there furthermore is an easy way to create or synchronize pages like user scripts on all wikis!
… it's for spreading information; and for a better cross-wiki communication & collaboration!

The Wiktionary logo dilemma
The Wiktionary community (actually the whole Wikimedia community) voted for a new Wiktionary logo, back in 2006.
As some major local communities refused to adapt the new logo for different reasons, Wiktionary now has two different logos, both widely used!
Because Wiktionary should have one common logo and favicon, meaning a unique visual identity, there is an attempt to refresh the Wiktionary logo update/change process.
Wikimania 2009, this year's global event devoted to Wikimedia projects around the globe, is accepting submissions for presentations, workshops, panels, posters, open space discussions, and even artistic works related to the Wikimedia projects or free content topics in general. The conference will be held from August 26 to 28 in Buenos Aires, Argentina!

Beside an elder project for the creation and improvement of illustrations, there is a new project to grow our encyclopedic image restoration community. It's to provide media restorers with the technical resources they need, and to reach out to all the archives in the world.
FlaggedRevs review feature
Beside the elder Patroller extension for patrolling recent changes and new pages, there is a highly configurable MediaWiki extension, called FlaggedRevs.
FlaggedRevs – being already enabled on several Wikimedia wikis – is a toolset for transparent and ensured article patrolling and/or for reliable quality assurance by specifying certain accurate article revisions that are shown to the public by default. Those stable article versions are identified in a release process by a trustable editorial staff and/or get approved by a reviewing expert staff. It is even possible to mark (tag) revisions of selected articles for different purposes, let's say for an article validation aiming on a print edition. Furthermore, there is the possibility to let your readers give you evaluative feedbacks.
FlaggedRevs will make your wiki more reliable and thus more reputable over the time!
Have a look on Meta's description, the technical description and the guidance for requesting FlaggedRevs!
On Meta, a bot account now can get a bot flag for all wikis that allow global bots!
To be able to run also on your Vikižodynas, the community has to explicitly permit global bots by local policy, see list.
To qualify for global bot access, the following requirements must be met by a bot:
- it must only maintain interlanguage links or fix double-redirects
- it must already be active on several wikis, with long-term contributions to back up its trustworthiness
