Subject: Turn mapframe for English Wikipedia? We’re ready if you are
Cc: Deborah Tankersley <dtankersley(a)wikimedia.org>
In October 2017, English Wikipedia community members approved an RfC
requesting implementation of mapframe
—a feature that enables contributors to easily display dynamic maps on
article pages. At the time, there was some question about whether
technical support for the maps service would be available long term, and
the Foundation asked that the community stand by. I’m writing now to say
that those questions have been answered, and a small team will be assigned
for routine maps maintenance.
So, unless we hear from the English Wikipedia community that the consensus
on adding mapframe has changed since last year’s RfC, we plan to move
forward in April 2018. You can read more about this plan and leave comments
on Village Pump . If you foresee any issues, let us hear from you.
