Dear MediaWiki community,
We are happy to announce the launch of the mediawikiexperts.blog today. 
This blog is meant to bring together the different MediaWiki stakeholders and groups and
make their projects visible.
We want to show the wealth of the MediaWiki universe, but also create space for new topics
and developments. We want to build a bridge between the many subprojects around MediaWiki
and to initiate new cooperations: inside and outside Wikimedia, between organizations and
individual community members.
The blog thus fills a gap: At the beginning of the year, we were excited to see the
Wikimedia Techblog was launched, which necessarily focuses on Wikimedia. And there are a
number of corporate blogs that also necessarily focus on their corporate topics.
But beyond that, we believe, there is still a need for a news portal that promotes
MediaWiki and appeals to professional users, maintainers, evangelists, admins and
We want to create a space for use cases and best practices from organizations, whether
non-profit or for-profit, for announcements and news from third party developers, for
presenting features and extensions from the whole MediaWiki cosmos, for tips and tricks
for deployment and configuration, announcing and reporting on events like the Semantic
MediaWiki and Enterprise MediaWiki conferences, or tutorials and debates.
So this blog supplements the existing news landscape and should strengthen the network and
The blog functions as a group blog and articles can be submitted at any time. In the
medium term, we hope that an independent editorial team will be formed.
We welcome contributions and ideas for contributions!
for the MediaWiki Stakeholders' Group
