Dyffransow ynter amendyansow a "Wikipedia:An tavern"

There is a [[:de:Wikipedia Diskussion:Kurier#.E2.80.9ENiemand braucht freies Wissen auf Esperanto.E2.80.9C|current discussion]] on German Wikipedia on a decision of Asaf Bartov, Head of WMF Grants and Global South Partnerships, Wikimedia Foundation, who rejected a request for funding a proposal from wikipedians from eowiki one year ago with the explanation ''[[:meta:Grants_talk:PEG/KuboF_-_Esperanto_kaj_Libera_Scio/WikiTrans_training_and_work_session_2013#An_Esperanto_Wikipedia_does_not_advance_our_mission|the existence, cultivation, and growth of the Esperanto Wikipedia does not advance our educational mission. No one needs free knowledge in Esperanto]]''. On meta there has also started a discussion about that decision. --[[Devnydhyer:Holder|Holder]] ([[Keskows Devnydhyer:Holder|keskows]]) 10:38, 5 Me 2014 (UTC)

'''Did you know?'''
<div class="thumbcaption" style="font-size: 90%;">
The character formatting menu, or "{{int:visualeditor-toolbar-style-tooltip}}" menu lets you set bold, italic, and other text styles. "Clear formatting" removes all text styles and removes links to other pages.
Do you think that clear formatting should remove links? Are there changes you would like to see for this menu? [[:mw:Thread:VisualEditor/Feedback/Clearing formatting_and_links|Share your opinion at MediaWiki.org]].
[[:mw:VisualEditor/User guide|The user guide]] has information about how to use VisualEditor.
''The [[:mw:VisualEditor|VisualEditor]] team is mostly working to fix bugs, improve performance, reduce technical debt, and other infrastructure needs. You can find [[:mw:VisualEditor/status|on Mediawiki.org]] weekly updates detailing recent work.''
* They have moved the "{{int:visualeditor-dialog-command-help-title}}" link out of the "{{int:visualeditor-pagemenu-tooltip}}" menu, into the "{{int:visualeditor-help-tool}}" menu. Within dialog boxes, buttons are now more accessible (via the Tab key) from the keyboard.
* You can now '''see the target of the link''' when you click on it, without having to open the inspector.
* The team also expanded '''[[:mw:VisualEditor/Portal/TemplateData|TemplateData]]''': You can now add a parameter type  "<code>date"</code> for dates and times in the [[w:ISO 8601|ISO 8601]] format, and  "<code>boolean"</code> for values which are true or false. Also, templates that redirect to other templates (like <code><nowiki>{{citeweb}}</nowiki></code> → <code><nowiki>{{cite web}}</nowiki></code>) now get the TemplateData of their target ([[bugzilla:50964|bug 50964]]). You can test TemplateData by editing [[:mw:Template:Sandbox/doc]].
* Category: and File: pages now display their contents correctly after saving an edit ([[bugzilla:65349|bug 65349]], [[bugzilla:64239|bug 64239]])
* They have also improved '''reference editing''': You should no longer be able to add empty citations with VisualEditor (bug 64715), as with references. When you edit a reference, you can now empty it and click the "use an existing reference" button to replace it with another reference instead. 
* It is now possible to edit '''inline images''' with VisualEditor. Remember that inline images cannot display captions, so existing captions get removed. Many other bugs related to images were also fixed.
* You can now add and edit <code><nowiki>{{DISPLAYTITLE}}</nowiki></code> and <code><nowiki>__DISAMBIG__</nowiki></code> in the "{{int:visualeditor-pagemenu-tooltip}}" menu, rounding out the full set of page options currently planned.
* The tool to insert '''special characters''' is now wider and simpler.</div>
=== Looking ahead ===
<div class="mw-content-ltr" lang="en" dir="ltr">
The VisualEditor team has posted a draft of their goals for the next fiscal year. You can read them and suggest changes [[:mw:Wikimedia Engineering/2014-15 Goals#Editing|on MediaWiki.org]].
The team posts details about planned work on [[:mw:VisualEditor/Roadmap|VisualEditor's roadmap]]. You will soon be able to '''drag-and-drop text''' as well as images. If you drag an image to a new place, it won't let you place it in the middle of a paragraph. All dialog boxes and windows will be simplified based on user testing and feedback. The VisualEditor team [[:mw:Cite-from-id|plans to add '''autofill features''']]''' for citations'''. <mark>Your [[:mw:VisualEditor/Design/Reference Dialog|ideas about making referencing quick and easy]] are still wanted.</mark> Support for '''upright image sizes''' is being developed. The designers are also working on support for '''viewing and editing hidden HTML comments''' and '''adding rows and columns to tables'''.
=== Supporting your wiki ===

Please read [[:mw:VisualEditor/Citation tool|VisualEditor/Citation tool]] for information on configuring the new '''citation template menu''', labeled "{{int:visualeditor-toolbar-cite-label}}". This menu will not appear unless it has been configured on your wiki.
If you speak a language other than English, '''we need your help with translating [[:mw:VisualEditor/User guide|the user guide]]'''.

VisualEditor can be made available to most non-Wikipedia projects. If your community would like to test VisualEditor, please contact product manager [[:m:User:Jdforrester (WMF)|James Forrester]] or file an enhancement request in Bugzilla.
