Pharos added a comment to T232961: Creation of Wikispore mailing list.

Can we create it this week? This will be a vital tool in building up community discussion and participation, and we want to do a kind of public launch for the project at a wikiconference in November.

Pharos added a comment to T232961: Creation of Wikispore mailing list.

While Wikimedia Space might be nice too as a supplement, it's still a niche platform, and the vast majority of potential Wikimedians interested in this project do use email. I can think of two dozen people to invite to a mailing list, and very few of those would be active Wikimedia Space users.

Any luck on this? I think @Legoktm is probably right that this was a simple bug introduced at one point.

I would suggest the system we have on euwiki (copied from cawiki). It can be deployed in a couple of hours and works perfectly.

Pharos added a comment to T231898: Namespaces configuration.

Hosting multiples "spores" on one wiki to start also means we only have to propose one Wikidata identifier property, which is a more modest ask of that community.

Pharos added a comment to T231072: Request creation of Wikispore VPS project.

If you have time and energy to build your own MediaWiki full stack wiki farm deployment tooling that's great. If not, MediaWiki-Vagrant exists and works today and has well documented integration with Cloud VPS projects.

Pharos added a comment to T231072: Request creation of Wikispore VPS project.

Now that I have written it down, it's a bit of a handful. Maybe we should cull it more.

You actually might be able to get started using https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:MediaWiki-Vagrant_in_Cloud_VPS and not worry about getting much fancier until you have enough wikis and usage that running it all on a single virtual machine becomes a performance issue. Building out fancy infrastructure before you find out the demand could distract you from the core problem of helping folks explore different contribution styles. (Says a person who has started many side projects and gotten lost in build and test tooling before proving that the idea was even worth continuing to code.)

Stupid question: Is there a reason *all* language codes are not added by default? Even languages that are small today are often the source of toponyms.

Ragesoss made me an admin recently, but not a sysadmin (I am probably not qualified for the latter position). Should we set up a wiki page on enwiki or meta for people to make general requests for activating their 'courses'?
