redirect non-existing wikimania2020.wikimedia.org to wikimania.wikimedia.org
Open, Stalled, MediumPublic

Description

Currently the domain wikimania2020.wikimedia.org does not exist.

Probably we should do the same for wikimedia2021-2099 if possible to prevent filing a new task each year.

Compare T240339: Create Wikimania 2020 namespace.

Or just stop using them completely? ;)

May be the question to ask is do we really need that?

I don't know any way to get the number of tried resolutions (or views) of a non-existent domain.

If someone find an old Wikimania website they may think the current website is wikimania2020.wikimedia.org

@Bugreporter: What does a namespace on a wiki have to do with a subdomain?

I am just here doing clinic duty for the SRE tag. Traffic should decide on this ticket, but based on my (limited) understanding of our setup, I suggest we should not do this unless there is a really good reason to.

@Bugreporter suggestion seems to be related to pageviews of wikimania2020 vs. other wikimanias, if that is the case probably the fix should be on analytics reporting per page or namespace, not on actual domain setup (and maybe that is even possible already). Please let us know what your needs are so maybe we can suggest a different way to achieve the same.

But again, I am not the person to decide, traffic should.

If someone find an old Wikimania website they may think the current website is wikimania2020.wikimedia.org

So maybe first T202684#5735025 should be answered before we do anything here?

The swap of Traffic for Traffic-Icebox in this ticket's set of tags was based on a bulk action for all such tickets that haven't been updated in 6 months or more. This does not imply any human judgement about the validity or importance of the task, and is simply the first step in a larger task cleanup effort. Further manual triage and/or requests for updates will happen this month for all such tickets. For more detail, have a look at the extended explanation on the main page of Traffic-Icebox . Thank you!
