Also, MediaWiki:Anonnotice exists, too.

alienating "others" ?[edit]

Erkan, "others" can be alienating. Consider alternatives such as "How would you describe Wikiversity to the unfamiliar". Hillgentleman|Talk 01:09, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Hello Hillgentleman, good idea. I will take your proposal until someone finds an even better sentence, ----Erkan Yilmaz uses the Wikiversity:Chat (try) 01:13, 31 March 2008 (UTC)


Voting on the closure of Beta Wikiversity (a multilingual project coordinating new non-English Wikiversities) is now open. -> It has been proposed (since Vasiliev doesn't like to be explicitly named; otherwise I would have preferred an active voice) that Beta Wikiversity (a multilingual project for coordination between wikiversities and for hosting new wikiversities) be closed.

I am not sure, you want that the message should be changed as you suggest after the symbol -> ? ----Erkan Yilmaz uses the Wikiversity:Chat (try) 16:18, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
First of all, it sounds almost like it is "our" (ie the wikiversity community's, or whatever that means) proposal; secondly, the description "a multilingual project coordinating new non-English Wikiversities" is not accurate. So yes, please replace. Hillgentleman|Talk 17:02, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Required correction[edit]

Registration for Wikimania 2008 has closed so please remove the section saying that "Registration for Wikimania 2008 is now open." Thanks, Anonymous101 talk 19:09, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for your awareness - removed, ----Erkan Yilmaz uses the Wikiversity:Chat (try) 19:11, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, that was quick. Anonymous101 talk 19:12, 16 July 2008 (UTC)


It seems like MediaWiki:Sitenotice id no longer needs to be updated to show new messages for people who have clicked dismiss the old message? --mikeu talk 02:53, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

There is no sign in the manual that Sitenotice id is now unnecessary. As I read this, if someone has clicked "Dismiss," the site notice is not displayed even if it is edited, until Sitenotice id is bumped. --Abd (discusscontribs) 21:21, 22 March 2015 (UTC)


Hello, good news! Thanks to FreedomFighterSparrow and Brion, unregistered users can now hide the sitenotice again. Previously, they were forced to see it continuously.

In all cases, please use the sitenotice with care, and keep in mind that occasional visitors see sitenotices on all their visits, if they visit less than once a month or they don't click "dismiss" and save a cookie. Nemo 15:43, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
