“other material […], to which you hold the copyright”. The relative clause here is defining and should not be separated with a comma. 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 16:34, 2 December 2019 (UTC)
Sorry, that comma closed the apposition starting with "or". 1234qwer1234qwer4

: The Wikimedia map tile server sets this header: access-control-allow-headers: accept, x-requested-with, content-type
require setting the User-Agent header, which that CORS header doesn't allow. Additionally, browser JS can't set the User-Agent
header at all. I think Api-User-Agent
should be added to that CORS header, and the policy should require either User-Agent
be set. Thanks! --SixTwoEight

: FWIW, changing font of zh-hant counterpart has been approved by their community, but not yet for zh-hans. And for other sinophone users based Wikipedias, they're still discussing. --Liuxinyu970226

I just read this resolution, & after wading thru all of the iterations of "Whereas", I expected to find an actual statement of, well, something, only to find that the Board resolved:
that the Board of Trustees hereby approves a new statement on community health.
So, what is
this new statement on community health? The Board resolution apparently forgot to state what it is, or even providing a link to what they have approved. (I'll forego any snark about imprecise thinking: I'm honestly curious about what the Board says on the subject.) -- Llywrch

Yes, linking it would be helpful. Thanks for the prompt reply. -- Llywrch

Style issues in the "Friendly space policy" article Friendly space policy
has inconsistent and incorrect style; unspaced em dashes are used in some areas, while spaced hyphen-minuses are used in others. My suggestion to fix the page is to change both instances of "... at all venues and events - such as conferences, virtual events, and related social events - that this policy applies to ..." to "... at all venues and events—such as conferences, virtual events, and related social events—that this policy applies to ..." —The preceding unsigned

Translations official text Universal Code of Conduct
To reach out to users around the globe, it would be helpful when the foundation.wikimedia.org page with the official and unchangeable text of the Universal Code of Conduct, soon could offer the translation tool. Probably a disclaimer is necessary, that translation via the tool is not an official version. Thanks! JustB EU

Anonymity of donors over $50,000
There is no upper bound to this category of donation. Would very large donations be completely altruistic or like political party donations have ties to soliciting policy direction?
Minor issues with UCoC page
1. When I click the "Feedback" link, I am taken to a "View Source" version of the page, not to any sort of feedback or discussion page. Please fix with a redirect or some other solution.
2. The first text in section 3.3, "Content vandalism and abuse of the projects", is not a sentence, but it should be in order to maintain parallel structure and be a grammatical continuation of the second clause in the lead of section 3.
3. The phrase "People who identify with a certain sexual orientation or gender identity using distinct names or pronouns" lacks parallel structure with the sentences around it. – Jonesey95

I think this may need to be discussed by WMF for changes to be approved, but I have a problem with this paragraph (emphasis mine):

Since that non-registered edits are associated with the IP address, and certain IP address can be associated with a particular company or government (like this example
), I think that it should be changed into something like this (edits are in boldtype
