Status Active


To take care of the Wiki of the Belgian Pirate Party.


Members of the squad have admin access. They can remove, restore or protect a page, and they can also block an IP address or an user account. Feel free to contact them if necessary.


What the wiki should provide :

  • A place to share and find information
  • An efficient and noninvasive way to communicate between pirates.


Visual editor

We consider the option of installing the Visual Editor to ease page edition.


  • We are not sure whether this new tool would make the edition easier, or on the opposite it will complexify everything by hiding wiki syntax from the user.
    • This requires more discussions within the WikiSquad.


As of February 2017, we installed the Translate extension. We are currently testing it in order to see if it fits our needs. We also plan to install the ContentTranslation extension.


  • There is a "bug" with Semantic Mediawiki and with Categories. Translated pages using a sidebar, such as Template:ProjectSidebar, occurs several times in the generated category. For instance, Apartmentgarden will show up four times (one per language + the original page) in the Category:Active Projects. The exact same problem occurs with semantic data.



  • Provide adequate tools to crews and squads to easy their workflow.
  • Implement an alternative to the mailing list (with semantic).
  • Improve the searching tool.


  • February 2017: We implemented a calendar through Semantic Mediawiki, see [1]. The result can be found here.
  • January 2017: We moved the Wiki to a new server.


  • Create/import a template 'outdated content/page'.
  • Organise, distribute and manage statues administrator and Bureaucrate and delete obsolete user accounts
  • Propose wiki templates in the according page


There is a poll to choose the date of the next workshop (August - September 2017):
This poll date will be closed on the 1st august. Thanks for filling it :)
