As such, I have launched a new support forum for MediaWiki. It aims to
make it easier to not only ask for and receive support compared to the
methods I outlined above, but also hopes to serve as a hub where people
who run their own MediaWiki installations can connect, share tips, and
network. To my knowledge, there is no such “MediaWiki Users Group”
outside of mailing lists at this time. The service is ad-free and content
posted is available under CC-BY-SA 3.0 so that particularly good answers
can be used to bolster documentation on mediawiki.org
I encourage anyone that is interested to check it out, and please let me
know if you have any feedback, suggestions, or questions about it 😊.
