(changing the subject seems long overdue)

Hi all,

I wanted to share two cool things related to Mastodon and Wikimedia.

First, it's now possible to verify your Wikimedia account on Mastodon[1]. The documentation for this is at <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Extension:RealMe>. Thanks to Taavi who led the technical development and all the other people who provided input during the process[2].

In any case, I'm primarily writing this email to let people know that we have started a community-run Wikipedia Mastodon account, which you all are invited to follow at <https://wikis.world/@wikipedia>, and more importantly contribute to, details of which are available at <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/@Wikipedia>.

The @Wikipedia account has been posting about a month and a half now, so I've written up a report of the experience and reception so far and provided metrics[3] on individual posts: <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/@Wikipedia/May_2023>. (We'll aim to do similar metrics reports in the future, but likely won't advertise it as widely as this list unless there's a desire for it.)

[1] For free, no need to pay $8 for the checkmark.

[3] All of these metrics are public, but require a bit of scripting to aggregate.
