Also there are Избранные списки и порталы (featured lists and portals), if you count them in case of German Wikipedia. Template: https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Шаблон:Избранный_список_или_портал

@MaxSem Would you be willing to propose this to the ruwiki community? :)

The message I've been using is:

What is Page Assessments?

Page Assessments is a MediaWiki extension for storing article assessments (e.g. WikiProjects) in a structured and machine-readable way. This means tools, scripts, gadgets, etc., can use this data to show assessment data. For example, XTools Pages Created shows assessments of all the articles created by a user (see the "assessments" column), and XTools Page History shows assessments of an article for each individual WikiProject. Other tools like Pageviews Analysis also show article classifications.

After deployment, if your wiki is interested, we could also set up Popular pages bot. With this, you can configure it so that every month, the bot will give the most-viewed pages for a given WikiProject. This can help identify what pages need more attention from editors.

You will also have a Special:PageAssessments page on your wiki, which can be used to browse all articles and their assessments.

How it works

The first step is deploying the extension, which WMF will do. Then in the template, we use the parser function {{#assessment: <name of the wikiproject> | <class> | <importance>}}. This will go in your WikiProject meta template, which appears to be Шаблон:Статья проекта. This is not a visible change -- the code won't render anything. It just tells the extension to store the data you pass to it.

More documentation on usage is at mw:Extension:PageAssessments#Usage.

Maybe @Gryllida can help here. :)

I also have a question about content of the message-

Are we asking for the permission of the wiki to deploy this? This needs to be clear. For example a question may be asked such as "Please test this extension at XXX and confirm whether you want it".

Thanks for the help!

But is the https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:PageAssessments#Usage page marked for translation? I do not see a Russian version of it.

It probably should be marked for translation, but don't worry about explaining the usage. You don't even need to mention it, it will probably just confuse people =P That's more for whoever will be helping us edit the "meta template". The parser function will be added only once, and in one place.

The same with https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Tech/Popular_pages_bot .

Currently the bot is only running on English Wikipedia, so we haven't marked it for translation. For now, you could describe this bot in your own words in the community discussion, similar to the message I came up with above. All I was trying to say is that Popular Pages Bot is something we'd be able to do with Page Assessments. We'd need a separate discussion to get consensus for the bot, after Page Assessments is deployed.

Are we asking for the permission of the wiki to deploy this? This needs to be clear. For example a question may be asked such as "Please test this extension at XXX and confirm whether you want it".

Yes, we would like permission from the community. There's no visible change, so nothing really to be worried about, but it's still good to hear the community say "yes, we are interested in this". For "testing", the best example I can think of is XTools. So for instance, see MaxSem's articles on English Wikipedia. You'll notice there is an "Assessment" column. If you look at MaxSem's articles on Russian Wikipedia, the "Assessment" column isn't there, because Page Asssessments hasn't been deployed to Russian Wikipedia yet. The same is true with Pageviews Analysis (see the "Class" at the bottom of the right-hand column), and other tools like WikiEd Dashboard.

The only thing that will change on-wiki is that there will be a new special page, Special:PageAssessments. I don't think this is used very much, though. The real benefit is how external tools will use the data.

Thanks. I've updated the translation. It now begins with a sentence that means "WMF are suggesting to install the Page Assessments extension at our wiki". Do we have a link that supports this statement, or would a link to this phabricator ticket be sufficient?

Yup! This Phabricator ticket is what you should link to. Thanks again
