  1. Gergo MediaWiki News
  2. Rich Comment Streams, Flow, & Other Messaging systems
    • I love & use Comment Streams
    • The main use is for OSHA compliance for Hazardous Materials
    • What does everyone else use?
  3. Cindy Reorg @ WMF
  4. Bernhard MW Conference Name
    • i.e. Semantic MediaWiki Conference (SMWCon) and Enterprise MediaWiki Conference (EMWCon) merging to the same name
    • MediaWiki Conference (MWCon) would be ideal, any update there?
      • Cindy There is some reservation coming from the WMF regarding confusion about the name or obligation from the WMF
    • Another option is MediaWiki Community Conference (MWComCon)


  1. Gergő: https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/mwstake-2023-07
  2. Bernhard: there is WikiForum: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:WikiForum
  3. Thomas: if any of these extension can also be queried showing comments at the footer of an article would be great
  4. Rich: I just have a small update to share that:
    1. Meza is updated to deploy 35.x on Rocky Linux 8 (community edition of RHEL8) special thanks to WIkiTeq and Brian Wolff specifically.. and
    2. We (NASA) have just exercised our first commercial support mechanism (woo-hoo!) .. it was just a small CC procurement for a tiny bit of support from WikiTeq, but it went really well (see #1 above) & we are already looking to do it again. NASA GRC-ATF will soon be soliciting quotes for annual maintenance of meza
  5. Thomas: this was mentioned by Mark https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Comments
  6. Cindy: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:CommentStreams
  7. Thomas: or just a button "load more"
  8. Gergő: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:DiscussionTools
  9. Bernhard: https://eventyay.com/
  10. Rich: Option for conferences
  11. Bernhard: yes, MediaWikiCon!
  12. Vincent: concur with MWCon
  13. Rich: I said yes regarding hosting EMWCon 2024 in Sandusky, but it occurs to me that there was another gentleman at EMWCon 2023 in Austin who was eager to host as well and I thought it was wise to defer to him and keep Sandusky as an option for a year we don't have other options for.
    • MWCon! (y)
  14. Thomas: @cindy good point to involve a larger audience
  15. Mark: I kinda love "community"
  16. Bernhard: still "MediaWiki Community Conference" involves "MediaWiki" and we need permission for this
  17. Thomas: in my opinion SMWcon is quite generic, as long as you don't limit it to the software "Semantic Mediawiki"
  18. Rich: MWComCon :-)
