This issue of the Editing newsletter includes information the Talk pages project, an effort to help contributors communicate on wiki more easily.
Reply tool: This is available as a Beta Feature at the four partner wikis (Arabic, Dutch, French, and Hungarian Wikipedias). The Beta Feature is called "ابزارهای گفتوگو". The Beta Feature will get new features soon. The new features include writing comments in a new visual editing mode and pinging other users by typing @. You can test the new features on the Beta Cluster now. Some other wikis will have a chance to try the Beta Feature in the coming months.
I would like to propose operating InternetArchiveBot on South Azerbaijani Wikipedia. The bot finds dead links on articles, adds links to archived versions where available, and it also adds links to books where it is appropriate. It does this for over 50 Wikimedia wikis. The bot can be configured and translated through the web interface. Please let me know of your thoughts. If there are no objections in 14 days, I will ask the stewards for approval.
