Help

Lost? Confused? It’s OK, we’ll get through this. Here’s a helpful guide to Diff.

How do I join?

Ideally we want to allow Diff contributors to login using their Wikimedia account. We had a solution in place right before launch in July 2020 that was causing some problems. While we look into a solution you can join Diff by requesting an account. Someone will create your account and send you an automated email to login.

How can I publish something?

Please see the editorial guidelines and publishing checklist for all the details.

How do I translate?

Please see the guide to translation. Posts, pages, interface, and menus can all be translated.

I have a question about an old blog post

Diff combines the archives of the Wikimedia Blog (2008- 2018), Wikimedia Space (2019-2020) and a selection of news posts from the Wikimedia Foundation site (August 2018-December 2019). These posts were written at a different point in time and under different editorial and content guidelines than Diff.

These older sites also used different customizations to display images and thumbnails and may not look correctly on Diff. If you would like to update a post, join Diff and contact the team. We can give you the user rights to edit the published posts. Please don’t edit the content as that may lead to confusion for readers.

Comments

Comments are closed for posts older than 21 days. This includes any posts from these archives.

I still have questions!

If you notice an issue with authorship, images, or other technical bits, please contact the Diff team. You can leave a note on the Diff project talk page on Meta or email us at diff@wikimedia.org. Bug reports and feature requests can be made on Phabricator. Please add the #diff-blog tag when creating new tasks.
