Wikipedia:Mailing lists

Redirected from Wikipedia:Wikipedia-L

Wikipedia has a number of mailing lists for general users and administrators. Mailing lists are available in a number of formats: via a web archive, by email, or by NNTP using the mail-to-news gateway GMANE[?]. Mailing list posts are indexed by search engines such as Google.

The general project-wide list is Wikipedia-L (/mailman/listinfo/wikipedia-l). It's a resource for Wikipedia authors. If you don't want to use Wikipedia (or Wikipedia:meta-Wikipedia) for questions, or if you'd like to talk to other Wikipedians outside the wiki format, then you can sign up for Wikipedia-L.

Since Wikipedia-L developed into an extremely high traffic list, a separate mailing list for the English Wikipedia was created. For discussion of issues concerning the english wikipedia only, please sign up for WikiEN-L and keep Wikipedia-L for general policy discussions!

There is also a general mailing list for interlanguage issue discussions and cooperation: Intlwiki-L. Use this list for things that specifically concern cross-language issues, or for discussing the setting up of a new language.

There are also language-specific mailing lists for Wikipedia in Danish (/mailman/listinfo/wikida-l/), Dutch (/mailman/listinfo/wikinl-l/), Esperanto (/mailman/listinfo/wikieo-l/), Spanish (/mailman/listinfo/wikies-l/), French (/mailman/listinfo/wikifr-l/), German (/mailman/listinfo/wikide-l/), Japanese (/mailman/listinfo/wikija-l/), Polish (/mailman/listinfo/wikipl-l/), Portuguese (/mailman/listinfo/wikipt/), and Swedish (/mailman/listinfo/wikisv-l).

And, there's a mailing list for technical discussions regarding development of the Wikipedia software: Wikitech-L.

New textbook development page for the soon-to-appear Wiki Textbook (http://textbook.wikipedia.org) subdomain.

Wikipedia also has a real-time chat channel. Visit Wikipedia IRC channel for more info.
