PublicTestWiki, located at PublicTestWiki.com, also known merely as TestWiki, is a wiki site hosted on the Miraheze wiki farm. It is a project with a friendly community that provides an environment for all wiki site users to experiment with administrator permissions, templates, extensions, and other features provided by the MediaWiki software.
In addition to providing a testing environment, TestWiki also provides training programs to help users familiarize themselves with running a community. These training programs are designed by members of the community, and anyone is welcome to contribute to these programs. Due to its features and community, TestWiki remains a popular playground for Wikipedia users, and other users that want to have administrator permissions. Although the primary working language on TestWiki is English (en), it currently supports a total of twenty languages (via the 'Special:Translate' function); those additional being: British English (en-gb), Bengali (bn), Sorani (ckb), German (de), Spanish (es), French (fr), Hungarian (hu), Italian (it), Japanese (ja), Korean (ko), Portuguese (pt), Brazilian Portuguese (pt-br), Russian (ru), Sicilian (scn), Swedish (sv), Turkish (tr), Urdu (ur), Vietnamese (vi), Chinese (zh), and Taiwanese (zh-tw); however, it must be noted that not all twenty languages are fully and actively utilised.
Other projects also have partnership relationships set up with TestWiki, where TestWiki acts as the official testing environment for the project. This alleviates the partner's need to set up its own testing environment.
- Permissions available
The permissions available for testing at TestWiki largely reflect the permissions available at Wikipedia. Note that there are no requirements to obtaining testing permissions, provided that the user has an account in good standing. A bot grants most rights automatically, with the exception of bureaucrat, and bot.
TestWiki does not require 'confirmation edits' on other projects before permissions are granted. This opens up testing to a wide range of individuals, of all abilities, and helps ensure that users are able to test as soon as possible.
The following permissions are available for testing:
|Administrator||It includes the regular set of administrative permissions, and may be granted to any logged in user. It can also be revoked for inappropriate use.|
|Bureaucrat||It will be granted to users has been an administrator for 24 hours, who has at least 10 edits and who is trustworthy.|
