WikiTrek is an open project aimed to convert it:HyperTrek from a custom-made dynamic site to a wiki based on MediaWiki.
HyperTrek is the most comprehensive guide to en:Star Trek in Italian, but it is no longer actively maintained. To update the site, improve collaboration and simplify contributions, all the data have been transferred from the old site to new wiki. This wiki already has several contributors and we think the user base will increase in due time.

Italian Wikipedia already tooks data from Hypertrek, but it does not make sense to duplicate that information: this is lenghty manual process. With this conversion, the content of the site was automatically converted to a MediaWiki site and, implementing this interwiki link, all the content con be linked directly from Wikipedia. So users an take advantage from a complete data set and easy linking with no manual work.

L'Enciclopèdia (formerly known as Uiquipèdia) is a wiki encyclopedia project written in Valencian, but using orthography from the Real Acadèmia de Cultura Valenciana (El Puig Rules), which defends an ortographical and grammar standard completely different from standard Catalan (as regulated by the Acadèmia Valenciana de la Llengua and the Institut d'Estudis Catalans), used in the Catalan/Valencian Wikipedia (Viquipèdia). This website fulfills the six criteria for inclusion and I propose to add it to the interwiki map. --Agusbou2015 (talk) 22:34, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

To summarize: 1. provide clear and relevant use to the Wikimedia projects, including the purpose of the site: MarioWiki.net is the German counterpart to MarioWiki.com, which already is included in the interwiki list and the largest independent German site about Mario-related topics.

2. be trusted not to encourage spam links being added to the Wikimedia projects: Of course I won't encourage our contributors to spam links in Wikipedia, also most of the Mario-related articles in the German Wikipedia already have weblinks in the classic format to MarioWiki.net articles. On our wiki, we don't have any spam problems.

3.be free content (under a Commons-acceptable license): our articles are licensed with CC-by-NC-SA.

6.not contain malware: no ads, no external scripts, up-to-date software. Should not be in risk of becoming a malware-spreading site.

billinghurst, during the content translation testing on that beta cluster (few years back) I have to use url instead of interwiki link, though it's currently no longer needed (as content translation extension is already deployed), I would like to see if deployment got interwiki linked so in the future there will be no longer hassle of doing this, I saw the practicality in this. Also, if it possible to this link or , as an addendum I am fine if this request get rejected, I just thought this gonna make things easier for beta tester to do things that got reported to phab and need interwiki linking to here. PS : also per external search here on meta and en.wp :

Per discussion at phab:T150094, it is requested that an interwiki prefix be created for linking to code hosted on PAWS. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 11:02, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

"I also find it a little disconcerting that we are providing interwikis to an undocumented service, and one, when you hit it, gives zero information about what it does, nor links to what the service provides. A landing page like is simply rubbish, and I wouldn't think that we should be providing rubbish, meaningless targets."
Finnally, please remember we are all volunteers here and destructive criticism for a simple request will get us nowhere. Please indicate what further information is necessary and what documentation you would like to see while refraining from calling a popular volunteer-maintained project "rubish". Phabricator is also the best place to suggest any improvement on the PAWS project, please file a task with any suggestion on the paws-public html interface and perhaps I or another volunteer can work on it.

PAWS is sitting there as an isolated, unlinked, unexplained service, and a dead-end target with little context. Now if I dig around WMF wikis, I can find wikitech:PAWS, mw:Manual:Pywikibot/PAWS and mw:PAWS though only as a knowledgeable person of arcane-WMF-wikiness. Contrarily when I end up at PAWS, I end up in an isolated, unlinked, unexplained service. With the existing interwiki links the target urls are pretty much self-evident in their relevance, either from the link itself, or when arrived at as a target, this is not the case with the proposed PAWS usage. This proposal would appear to me to be new usage type, and seemingly proposed as it is an WMF-offered service, not due to it being part of the originally envisaged scope of the interwiki map.

Whilst my commentary may be uncomplimentary, I challenge that it is destructive. I made ZERO comment about the service at all, my comment was clearly about the targets. I am also not certain that it is up to me to go digging and making any phabricator tickets for a service which is pretty unknown to me. I will also reflect that I have enough unactioned phabricator tickets to pretty much reflect MEH! about an equitable cooperativeness, especially in the relationship and decision-making process of the developer-community to the content-community.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:45, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

XTools is a popular suite of analytics tools. Global Search reports some scattered across the wikis, including in interface messages, with an additional links to the old location at tools.wmflabs.org/xtools (though there's no intention of updating those as they automatically forward to the new location). An interwiki link would simply shave off of some typing. Legacy links to XTools use URL query params (i.e. /ec?project=meta.wikimedia&user=Foo, but as of version 3.0 (released July 2017) it uses path-style parameters, such as /ec/meta.wikimedia/Foo, hence making it easy to link to with an interwiki link.

I don't understand why Uncyclopedia was to this list. The text at the top says "Remember to specify why the prefix would be useful on a significant number of pages on Wikimedia Foundation projects", but I see no reason why anyone would need to link to a little-known humor wiki with no relevance to Wikimedia projects other than claiming to be a parody of Wikipedia. I notice this prefix was in 2009 after this discussion. It is also worth noting that there are two Uncyclopedias. The community forked in 2013, and a significant portion of it remained at uncyclopedia.wikia.com, which today is the more active site and ranks higher in search results. (See wikipedia:Uncyclopedia, which links to both sites, and the number of active users listed on their . Also note that the Wikipedia article does not use the interwiki.) I know the Wikia-hosted version can still be linked to by wikia:uncyclopedia:pagename, but having a dedicated prefix for either site and not the other seems like playing favorites.

I might also suggest that uncyclopedia.co is not the kind of site Wikimedia projects would want to be associated with. It is highly male-dominated, as can be seen from their which lists several self-identified men but no self-identified women. One of those men wrote misguided opinion piece about the #MeToo movement. They also have an associated IRC channel #uncyclopedia where some really vile things have been said including . (Ctrl+F for "holocaust". The comment may have been a joke, but if so it's in bad taste. Bigotry is often framed as "jokes" to make it socially acceptable.) There's more I could say, but I don't think it would be appropriate here. I don't know if Wikimedia sites or the WMF care about the nature of the communities they give traffic to with interwiki links, but if they do, I hope they consider that this one conflicts with their principles.

This website is down, and according to phab:T115790, has been repeatedly over the last several years (depending on how you interpret the last few comments in that bug report, it may have been down continuously for over two years by this point). It is only used a , and only around 5 of those are articles, plus a couple dozen or so translation subpages here on MetaWiki (though I counted just by scanning the list, so I may have missed some). ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 17:46, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

See #Protected edit request on 22 July 2019. I didn't see this was here earlier. Sorry Xaosflux!

Not counting sandboxes/test-pages, this would only have a noticeable effect for a single user: Admrboltz/RBoltz who uses it for his page (toollabs:pirsquared says only Russell's enwikibooks and eswikipedia pages, but I know it's more than that).
The wiki has barely been updated since 2009/2010-ish. It only has 82 pages anyways, too. You could also just use Wikia:Cell:EXAMPLE for the same function anyways even if it ever was really needed (which it's not).
I'd say it is safe to retire this link. –MJLTalk 01:42, 27 July 2019 (UTC)

The links are broken - works, but clicking forward to returns a forbidden access error / 403. All links, like , return a Not Found / 404 error.

The primary usage is in w:Template:WP1.0, and the template can be updated.

Small, niche, with very little to no overlap with what we do at WMF projects. In the extremely rare cases that an outgoing link would go to this site, it's easy to create a standard hyperlink without it being part of the map. —Justin (koavf)TCM 00:59, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

​[[Quarry:$1]]​ maps to ​https://quarry.wmflabs.org/$1​, should map to ​https://quarry.wmflabs.org/query/$1​. For backwards compatibility, the "​query/​" prefix should be removed by the parser. Fuzzy (talk) 09:32, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

It looks like PlanetMath changed the way their URLs are generated and now the interwiki links are broken. For example, in the external links section on the Sigma-Algebra page there is an interwiki link ​[[PlanetMath:950|Sigma Algebra]]​ which goes to the URL ​http://planetmath.org/node/950​. But the URL should actually be ​https://planetmath.org/sigmaalgebra​. 147.188.194.161 12:25, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

Hi. I created the page Interwiki map/detailed table, and the code I used to generate it is here. If you any glaring errors or omissions, tell me and I'll try to fix them. PiRSquared17 (talk) 14:31, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

The header on interwiki map rightly suggests that prefixes "should avoid likely conflict with languages". However, some prefixes do conflict with ISO 639-3 codes. The following is a table of all conflicts I was able to find.

(There are other three-letter codes on the interwiki map that are not assigned as ISO 639 codes currently, but could potentially be assigned in the future. If I missed anything in the above table, ping me.)

The only actionable proposal I think I can immediately make is the removal of "guc". First of all, Wayuu has by far the highest chance of being approved by LangCom in the near future. Secondly, the global user contributions tool already has an interwiki prefix, "luxo", so there's not much need for "guc". Finally, the "guc" prefix only has a relatively small number of usages and was only added in February so it should be easy to completely replace before it becomes a larger problem.

By the way, I've modified my iwconflict.php tool to report conflicts with language codes. This should reduce the chance that the list of collisions will continue to grow. PiRSquared17 (talk) 22:42, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

The only one of those language codes that has a page on Incubator besides guc is doi, and that page basically redirects people to the separate language codes within the macrolanguage. And the request for Dogri on Meta has been recoded to one of the separate language codes. So I think guc is the only one remotely problematic now. Thanks for continuing to keep an eye on this issue, and ping me if there's a question.

There is now . It isn't complete yet. Jura1 (talk) 11:21, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
