Wikimedia UK's wiki has been migrated from the Wikimedia Foundation's datacenter to the Wikimedia UK's one.

Activate "Enable email from other users" in your user profile now! That we get a chance to communicate to you your new password. To do this:

  1. Log in to your account
  2. Click 'Preferences' (or 'Dewisiadau') in the top-right of the page
  3. Near the bottom of the page, enter your email address (if not already entered)
  4. Select the check box marked 'Enable e-mail from other users' (or 'Galluogi e-bost oddi wrth ddefnyddwyr eraill')
  5. Save your preferences by clicking on the button at the bottom of the screen.

What else will change?

The domain name of the website will change from




While automatic redirect will exist from the current domain, users should update their bookmarks to use the new address.

Saving your watchlist

To manually migrate your watchlist, go to Special:EditWatchlist/raw and save everything within the Titles: text box in a text file on your computer. On the new wiki after migration, again go to Special:EditWatchlist/raw and this time paste what you previously saved into the text box and click "Update watchlist".
