Anything else?

Do you have any particular information or configuration that we should be aware of (like you have a special in-person mentoring program, or your wiki uses FlaggedRevisions...):

We don't use the Help namespace on svwiki, all help articles are in the Wikipedia namespace.

Where are the aliases supposed to be translated? In the Mediawiki namespace on svwiki?

Noted. The features will work fine.

Where are the aliases supposed to be translated? In the Mediawiki namespace on svwiki?

Please translate them in the task description. These aliases have to be manually set when we create the configuration.

Hello @Ainali

Anything new? How can I help you?

I've reached out to all the mentors on sv.wiki, and all seem positive. However, it's the middle of the summer which means that Wikipedia has a lower priority so we are moving a bit slow. One question though, which pages do you recommend to use as help pages on Swedish Wikipedia? All the ones from mediawiki listed here?

Good news!

However, it's the middle of the summer which means that Wikipedia has a lower priority so we are moving a bit slow.

No worries, this is also the case on our side.

One question though, which pages do you recommend to use as help pages on Swedish Wikipedia? All the ones from mediawiki listed here?

We recommend pages that are up to date and based on the use of the visual editor. They can be at any place, as far as they are clear and focusing on the point they try to help. If you need, we have a draft with some advice about writing help pages.

Has your community considered to use the Help namespace? On a lot of wikis, Wikipedia namespace is used to define policies and the Help space on how to apply them (beyond just explaining how to do something).

I was particularly thinking about help pages about the Growth extension. Perhaps the Feature summary is a good start.

Regarding Help pages, we actively stopped using them some years ago since it sometimes was confusing which pages belonged in the Wikipedia namespace and which ones in help. To avoid such confusion and not really helpful discussions everything was moved into the Wikipedia namespace.
