Wikipedia in sassaresu[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Salve! Volevo segnalare ai partecipanti della wiki in còrso (scusate se scrivo in italiano) la proposta di creare la Wikipedia in Sassaresu. Per supportarne la creazione è possibile aggiungersi a questa lista e scrivere un breve commento a favore. Inoltre è già possibile iniziare a scrivere su incubator:Wp/sdc (con pochi semplici accorgimenti, come ricordarsi di inserire [[Category:Wp/sdc]] e creando le categorie non ancora esistenti); non ritenendo in discussione lo status di lingua, credo che un centinaio di articoli ed un 5-10 partecipanti dovrebbero bastare per l'approvazione il progetto; se foste a conoscenza di altre persone interessante vi invito caldamente a farle iscrivere e partecipare. Per una prima norma di scrittura è possibile fare affidamento su questo breve testo. Consideratemi sempre a disposizione per qualsiasi chiaramento o informazione. Azzidezzi! --87.16.91.185 09:21, 30 aostu 2007 (UTC)

Betawiki: better support for your language in MediaWiki[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Dear community. I am writing to you to promote a special wiki called Betawiki. This wiki facilitates the localisation (l10n) of the MediaWiki interface. You may have changed many messages here on this wiki to use your language, but if you would log in to for example the English language Wiktionary, you would not be able to use the interface as well translated as here. Infact, of the 1793 messages in the core of MediaWiki, 0 messages have been translated. Betawiki also supports the translation of messages of almost 80 extensions, with 984 messages.

If you wish to contribute to better support of your language in MediaWiki, as well as for many MediaWiki extensions, please visit Betawiki, create an account and request translator priviledges. You can see the current status of localisation of your language on meta and do not forget to get in touch with others that may already be working on your language on Betawiki.

If you have any further questions, please let me know on my talk page on Betawiki. We will try and assist you as much as possible, for example by importing all messages from a local wiki for you to start with, if you so desire.

You can also find us on the Freenode IRC network in the channel #mediawiki-i18n where we would be happy to help you get started.

Thank you very much for your attention and I do hope to see some of you on Betawiki soon! Cheers! Siebrand@Betawiki 08:54, 24 settembre 2007 (UTC)

The most often used MediaWiki messages[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Hoi, the most often used MediaWiki messages (less than 25% of all MediaWiki messages) are the most visible messages. They help our readers and editors the most. We are aiming to get these messages localised for as many languages as possible by the end of the year. Please help us and yourself and localise these messages.

proposal to close the corsican wikibooks[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Hello,

I was temporary admin to co.wikibooks, and I have seen no activity on articles since at least 6 month. There are only 13 articles, quite only stubs.

The activity began in may 2005, and never really started.

I think about proposing this site for closing. What is your opinion about it ?

Regards

--Hercule 13:15, 7 sittembre 2009 (UTC)

Hello. I disagree. The current priority for us is improving wikipedia in corsu. But once wikipedia reaches a good quality level, the interest in wikibooks will be revived. It may stay as it is during some time, but its interest will come later. On the other hand, wikisource could be closed, on my opinion, since all its content can be easily transferred into wikipedia. But the same does not go for wikibooks. Regards. Paulu 16:27, 9 sittembre 2009 (UTC)
Hello,
Thanks for this answer. As there is no activity (and only 13 pages since the opening of this site), whouldn't it be better to close it, and ask to reopen it when you think it's time to really start? Currently this wiki has nobody to manage it, and can be target of spam bots and vandalism.

The LocalisationUpdate extension has gone live[mudificà | edità a fonte]

The LocalisationUpdate extension is now enabled for all Wikimedia projects. From now on new localisations that become available in SVN will become available to your project within 24 hours. Your localisations get into SVN from translatewiki.net typically within a day and at worst in two days. This is a huge improvement from the old practice where the localisations became available with new software. This could take weeks, even months.

The localisations done by our community at translatewiki.net are committed to SVN typically every day. When the system messages in English are the same as the local messages, they will now be inserted in a file and are available for use in all our projects in a timely manner

What this means for you[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Local messages have an impact on the performance of our system. It is best when messages are as much as possible part of the system messages. In order to remove unnecessary duplication, all the messages that have a local localisation and are exactly the same as the system message will be removed. What we ask you to do is to compare and proof read the messages in translatewiki.net and the local messages. You can then either remove local messages when the translatewiki.net message is to be preferred or, you can update the message at translatewiki.net.

Messages that are specific to your project will have to stay as they are. You do want to check if the format and the variables of the message are still the same.

Why localise at translatewiki.net[mudificà | edità a fonte]

When you localise at translatewiki.net, your messages will be used in all Wikimedia projects and eventually in all MediaWiki based projects. This is how we provide the standard support for your language. When messages change, at translatewiki.net you will be prompted to revisit your translations. Localising is more efficient because we have innovated the process to make you more efficient; there is text explaining about messages and we have applied AJAX technology to reduce the number of clicks you have to make.

How can we improve the usability for your language[mudificà | edità a fonte]

We expect that with the implementation of LocalisationUpdate the usability of MediaWiki for your language will improve. We are now ready to look at other aspects of usability for your language as well. There are two questions we would like you to answer: Are there issues with the new functionality of the Usability Initiative Does MediaWiki support your language properly

The best way to answer the first question is to visit the translatewiki.net. Change the language to your language, select the “vector” skin and add the advanced tool bar in in the preferences and check out the new functionality. And make some changes in your user page. When there is a need to improve on the localisation, please make the necessary changess . It should update your localisation straight away. We would like you to report each issue individually at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Usability_issues.

When there are problems with the support of MediaWiki for your language, we really want to know about this. It is best to report each issue separately. In this way there will be no large mass of issues to resolve but we can address each issue on its own. Consider issues with the display of characters, the presentation of your script, the position of the side bar, the combination of text with other languages, scripts. It is best to try this in an environment like the prototype wiki as it provides you with a clean, basic and up to date environment. The prototype wiki is available for five languages but you can select any of them, change the preferences to your language and test out MediaWiki for your language.

We would like you to report each issue individually at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Language issues. The issues you raise will all be assessed. It is important to keep each issue separate, because this will make it easier to understand the issues and find solutions.

Fundraising 2010[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Hello Wikimedians,

As many of you are aware, we are now two months away from the Fundraiser for the Wikimedia Foundation, 2010. We have lofty goals, and we can meet them and exceed them!

The meta translators are already actively engaged in the annual drive to distribute our messages and we encourage you to do the same, but we would like to point everyone to the developments we've made in banner messages- from creation to commentary to the ones that will go live for test and for the drive itself in November. It's one of our goals to make sure that all volunteers know that there is a place for them in the Fundraising drive. We've started the setup on meta for both banner submission, statistical analysis, and grouping volunteers together that would like to find specific focus and work in that area.

This year the Wikimedia Foundation is taking a proactive stance in reaching out to each and every Wikimedia project and volunteer to find innovation, collaboration, and collation of ideas from the community driven process. The staff working on this is comprised of long-time Wikimedians with as much care and concern for the success of this drive as the volunteers, and we want you to actively participate and have a voice.

Use the talk pages on meta, talk to your local communities, talk to others, talk to us. Engagement is what we strive for, without each other we would never had made Wikimedia succeed. Everyone is welcome to contact any of us on staff at any time with a timely response to follow. We actively encourage focusing discussion on meta so we can all work together.

Please translate this message into your language if you can and post it below.

See you on the wiki! Keegan, WMF Fundraiser 2010 06:13, 8 sittembre 2010 (UTC)

Fundraising and your wiki[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Greetings, please translate this message if you can.

Fundraising 2010 is preparing to start, and we want your project to be a part of the global movement to support free knowledge. The Wikimedia Foundation is engaging with local communities that build the projects to play an active part in this year's fundraiser. This year we will be working to best serve all the language communities by providing messages that are best suited for each location.

To do this, we need your help. We are testing messages and we want to be sure that our messages will work with your language. If it does not and your community can come up with your own banner in the spirit of supporting free knowledge, we invite you to submit your proposals and be active in this process. Wikimedia is for you, join us in supporting free knowledge in your local community! Keegan, WMF Fundraiser 2010 05:02, 15 sittembre 2010 (UTC)

Beat Jimmy[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Please translate this message.

The Fundraising Committee is issuing all interested community members a challenge: we want you to beat Jimmy. The appeal from Jimmy Wales and the corresponding banner have been tested head-to-head with other successful banners, and the results are clear: it's our best performing message... by a lot. This year we have a lofty fundraising goal; we need all of our banners to bring in donations like the Jimmy Appeal, but no one wants to keep the Jimmy banner up for two months. We want to run donor quotes, and other wonderful ideas, but we have to have banners that work as well as or better than the Jimmy appeal.

We've just released the highlights from a donor focus group, and the results of our donor survey. With one month to the launch of the fundraiser, the messages we test must be driven by data from our tests and surveys - we can no longer rely on instinct alone.

We've redesigned our fundraising meta pages with the Jimmy challenge; check out the survey results and propose/discuss banners that reflect these findings. Add the banners you think will 'beat Jimmy' here to be tested Tuesday October 12 against Jimmy. Keegan, WMF Fundraiser 2010 02:59, 8 uttobre 2010 (UTC)

Call for image filter referendum[mudificà | edità a fonte]

The Wikimedia Foundation, at the direction of the Board of Trustees, will be holding a vote to determine whether members of the community support the creation and usage of an opt-in personal image filter, which would allow readers to voluntarily screen particular types of images strictly for their own account.

Further details and educational materials will be available shortly. The referendum is scheduled for 12-27 August, 2011, and will be conducted on servers hosted by a neutral third party. Referendum details, officials, voting requirements, and supporting materials will be posted at Meta:Image filter referendum shortly.

Language support group for Corsican[mudificà | edità a fonte]

The Wikimedia Foundation has brought together a new team of developers who are dedicated to language support. This team is to support all the languages and consequently it is not realistic to expect that the team members can provide proper support for your language. It is for this reason that we are looking for volunteers who will make up a language support team.

This language support team will be asked to provide us with information about their language. Such information may need to be provided either to us or on a website that we will indicate to you. Another activity will be to test software that will likely have an effect on the running of the MediaWiki software. We are looking for people who clearly identify their ability. Formal knowledge is definitely appreciated.

As much of the activity will be concentrated on translatewiki.net, it will be a plus when team members know how to localise at translatewiki.net. Thanks, Gmeijssen 15:34, 17 uttobre 2011 (UTC)

Because the new version of Terms of use is not in final form, we are not able to present official translations of it. Volunteers are welcome to translate it, as German volunteers have done at m:Terms of use/de, but we ask that you note at the top that the translation is unofficial and may become outdated as the English version is changed.

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

Hello Wikipedians, my name is Alex and I am working for the Wikimedia Foundation during the 2011 Fundraiser. This year's fundraiser is intended to be a collaborative and global effort; we recognize that messages which may perform well in the United States don't necessarily translate well, or appeal to international audiences.

I'm contacting you as I am currently looking for volunteers who are willing to contribute to this project by helping translate and localize messages into your local language, suggesting community appeals for us to use, and to provide us with feedback on the Fundraising Meta Page. We've started the setup on meta for both translation, statistical analysis, and local discussion and testing. We actively encourage focusing discussion on meta so we can all work together.
Use the talk pages on meta, talk to your local communities, talk to others, talk to us. Engagement is what we strive for, without each other we would never had made Wikimedia succeed. The staff working on this fundraiser is comprised of long-time Wikimedians with as much care and concern for the success of this drive as the volunteers, and we want you to actively participate and have a voice. Everyone is welcome to contact any of us on staff at any time with a timely response to follow. I look forward to working with you during this year's fundraiser.

If someone could translate this message I would really appreciate it so that everyone is able to understand our goals and contribute to this year's campaign.

Announcing Wikipedia 1.19 beta[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Wikimedia Foundation is getting ready to push out 1.19 to all the WMF-hosted wikis. As we finish wrapping up our code review, you can test the new version right now on beta.wmflabs.org. For more information, please read the release notes or the start of the final announcement.

The following are the areas that you will probably be most interested in:

  • Faster loading of javascript files makes dependency tracking more important.
  • New common*.css files usable by skins instead of having to copy piles of generic styles from MonoBook or Vector's css.
  • The default user signature now contains a talk link in addition to the user link.
  • Searching blocked usernames in block log is now clearer.
  • Better timezone recognition in user preferences.
  • Improved diff readability for colorblind people.
  • The interwiki links table can now be accessed also when the interwiki cache is used (used in the API and the Interwiki extension).
  • More gender support (for instance in logs and user lists).
  • Language converter improved, e.g. it now works depending on the page content language.
  • Time and number-formatting magic words also now depend on the page content language.
  • Bidirectional support further improved after 1.18.

Report any problems on the labs beta wiki and we'll work to address them before they software is released to the production wikis.

Note that this cluster does have SUL but it is not integrated with SUL in production, so you'll need to create another account. You should avoid using the same password as you use here. — Global message delivery 00:00, 15 ghjennaghju 2012 (UTC)

Update on IPv6[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it, as well as the full version of this announcement on Meta)

The Wikimedia Foundation is planning to do limited testing of IPv6 on June 2-3. If there are not too many problems, we may fully enable IPv6 on World IPv6 day (June 6), and keep it enabled.

What this means for your project:

  • At least on June 2-3, 2012, you may see a small number of edits from IPv6 addresses, which are in the form "2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334". See e.g. w:en:IPv6 address. These addresses should behave like any other IP address: You can leave messages on their talk pages; you can track their contributions; you can block them. (See the full version of this announcement for notes on range blocks.)
  • In the mid term, some user scripts and tools will need to be adapted for IPv6.
  • We suspect that IPv6 usage is going to be very low initially, meaning that abuse should be manageable, and we will assist in the monitoring of the situation.

Read the full version of this announcement on how to test the behavior of IPv6 with various tools and how to leave bug reports, and to find a fuller analysis of the implications of the IPv6 migration.

2011 Picture of the Year competition[mudificà | edità a fonte]

македонскиnorsk bokmålpolski

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2011 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We are interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year 2011. Any user registered at Commons or a Wikimedia wiki SUL-related to Commons with more than 75 edits before 1 April 2012 (UTC) is welcome to vote and, of course everyone is welcome to view!

Detailed information about the contest can be found at the introductory page.

About 600 of the best of Wikimedia Common's photos, animations, movies and graphics were chosen –by the international Wikimedia Commons community– out of 12 million files during 2011 and are now called Featured Pictures.

Help decide about more than $10 million of Wikimedia donations in the coming year[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it)

Hi,

As many of you are aware, the Wikimedia Board of Trustees recently initiated important changes in the way that money is being distributed within the Wikimedia movement. As part of this, a new community-led "Funds Dissemination Committee" (FDC) is currently being set up. Already in 2012-13, its recommendations will guide the decisions about the distribution of over 10 million US dollars among the Foundation, chapters and other eligible entities.

Now, seven capable, knowledgeable and trustworthy community members are sought to volunteer on the initial Funds Dissemination Committee. It is expected to take up its work in September. In addition, a community member is sought to be the Ombudsperson for the FDC process. If you are interested in joining the committee, read the call for volunteers. Nominations are planned to close on August 15.

Wikidata is getting close to a first roll-out[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.)

As some of you might already have heard Wikimedia Deutschland is working on a new Wikimedia project. It is called m:Wikidata. The goal of Wikidata is to become a central data repository for the Wikipedias, its sister projects and the world. In the future it will hold data like the number of inhabitants of a country, the date of birth of a famous person or the length of a river. These can then be used in all Wikimedia projects and outside of them.

The project is divided into three phases and "we are getting close to roll-out the first phase". The phases are:

  1. language links in the Wikipedias (making it possible to store the links between the language editions of an article just once in Wikidata instead of in each linked article)
  2. infoboxes (making it possible to store the data that is currently in infoboxes in one central place and share the data)
  3. lists (making it possible to create lists and similar things based on queries to Wikidata so they update automatically when new data is added or modified)

It'd be great if you could join us, test the demo version, provide feedback and take part in the development of Wikidata. You can find all the relevant information including an FAQ and sign-up links for our on-wiki newsletter on the Wikidata page on Meta.

For further discussions please use this talk page (if you are uncomfortable writing in English you can also write in your native language there) or point me to the place where your discussion is happening so I can answer there.

Fundraising localization: volunteers from outside the USA needed[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Please translate for your local community

Hello All,

The Wikimedia Foundation's Fundraising team have begun our 'User Experience' project, with the goal of understanding the donation experience in different countries outside the USA and enhancing the localization of our donation pages. I am searching for volunteers to spend 30 minutes on a Skype chat with me, reviewing their own country's donation pages. It will be done on a 'usability' format (I will ask you to read the text and go through the donation flow) and will be asking your feedback in the meanwhile.

The only pre-requisite is for the volunteer to actually live in the country and to have access to at least one donation method that we offer for that country (mainly credit/debit card, but also real-time banking like IDEAL, E-wallets, etc...) so we can do a live test and see if the donation goes through. All volunteers will be reimbursed of the donations that eventually succeed (and they will be low amounts, like 1-2 dollars)

By helping us you are actually helping thousands of people to support our mission of free knowledge across the world. Please sing up and help us with our 'User Experience' project! :) If you are interested (or know of anyone who could be) please email ppena@wikimedia.org. All countries needed (excepting USA)!

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons.

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Wikidata phase 1 (language links) coming to this Wikipedia[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg

Sorry for writing in English. I hope someone can translate this locally.

Wikidata has been in development for a few months now. It is now time for the roll-out of the first part of it on your Wikipedia. Phase 1 is the support for the management of language links. It is already being used on the Hungarian, Hebrew, Italian and English Wikipedias. The next step is to enable the extension on all other Wikipedias. We have currently planned this for March 6.

What is Wikidata?[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Wikidata is a central place to store data that you can usually find in infoboxes. Think of it as something like Wikimedia Commons but for data (like the number of inhabitants of a country or the length of a river) instead of multimedia. The first part of this project (centralizing language links) is being rolled out now. The more fancy things will follow later.

What is going to happen?[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Language links in the sidebar are going to come from Wikidata in addition to the ones in the wiki text. To edit them, scroll to the bottom of the language links, and click edit. You no longer need to maintain these links by hand in the wiki text of the article.

Where can I find more information and ask questions?[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Editors on en:wp have created a great page with all the necessary information for editors and there is also an FAQ for this deployment. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

Convert complex templates to Lua to make them faster and more powerful[mudificà | edità a fonte]

(Please consider translating this message for the benefit of your fellow Wikimedians)

Greetings. As you might have seen on the Wikimedia tech blog or the tech ambassadors list, a new functionality called "Lua" is being enabled on all Wikimedia sites today. Lua is a scripting language that enables you to write faster and more powerful MediaWiki templates.

If you have questions about how to convert existing templates to Lua (or how to create new ones), we'll be holding two support sessions on IRC next week: one on Wednesday (for Oceania, Asia & America) and one on Friday (for Europe, Africa & America); see m:IRC office hours for the details. If you can't make it, you can also get help at mw:Talk:Lua scripting.

If you'd like to learn about this kind of events earlier in advance, consider becoming a Tech ambassador by subscribing to the mailing list. You will also be able to help your fellow Wikimedians have a voice in technical discussions and be notified of important decisions.

Wikidata phase 2 (infoboxes) coming to this Wikipedia[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg

Sorry for writing in English. I hope someone can translate this. If you understand German better than English you can have a look at the announcement on de:Wikipedia:Kurier.

A while ago the first phase of Wikidata was enabled on this Wikipedia. This means you are getting the language links in each article from Wikidata. It is soon time to enable the second phase of Wikidata (infoboxes) here. We have already done this on the [first 11 Wikipedias] (it, he, hu, ru, tr, uk, uz, hr, bs, sr, sh) and things are looking good. The next step is English Wikipedia. This is planned for April 8. If everything works out fine we will deploy on all remaining Wikipedias on April 10. I will update this part of the FAQ if there are any issues forcing us to change this date. I will also sent another note to this village pump once the deployment is finished.

What will happen once we have phase 2 enabled here? Once it is enabled in a few days you will be able to make use of the structured data that is available on Wikidata in your articles/infoboxes. It includes things like the symbol for a chemical element, the ISBN for a book or the top level domain of a country. (None of this will happen automatically. Someone will have to change the article or infobox template for this to happen!)

How will this work? There are two ways to access the data:

  • Use a parser function like {{#property:p169}} in the wiki text of the article on Yahoo!. This will return “Marissa Mayer” as she is the chief executive officer of the company.
  • For more complicated things you can use Lua. The documentation for this is here.

We are working on expanding the parser function so you can for example use {{#property:chief executive officer}} instead of {{#property:p169}}. The complete plan for this is here.

Where can I test this? You can already test it on test2.

Where can I find more information and ask questions? We have collected the main questions in an FAQ for this deployment. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

A while ago the first phase of Wikidata was enabled on this Wikipedia. This means you are getting the language links in each article from Wikidata. We have now enabled the second phase of Wikidata (infoboxes) here. We have already done this on the [first 11 Wikipedias] (it, he, hu, ru, tr, uk, uz, hr, bs, sr, sh) a month ago and two days ago on the English Wikipedia. Today all the remaining Wikipedias followed.

What does having phase 2 enabled here mean? You are now able to make use of the structured data that is available on Wikidata in your articles/infoboxes. It includes things like the symbol for a chemical element, the ISBN for a book or the top level domain of a country. (None of this will happen automatically. Someone will have to change the article or infobox template for this to happen!) The current state is just the beginning though. It will be extended based on feedback we get from you now.

How will this work? There are two ways to access the data:

  • Use a parser function like {{#property:p159}} in the wiki text of the article on Wikimedia Foundation. This will return “San Francisco” as that is the headquarter location of the non-profit.
  • For more complicated things you can use Lua. The documentation for this is here.

We are working on expanding the parser function so you can for example use {{#property:headquarter location}} instead of {{#property:p159}}. The complete plan for this is here.

Where can I test this? You can test it on test2 if you don't want to do it in an article here.

Where can I find more information and ask questions? We have collected the main questions in an FAQ for this deployment. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

[en] Change to section edit links[mudificà | edità a fonte]

The default position of the "edit" link in page section headers is going to change soon. The "edit" link will be positioned adjacent to the page header text rather than floating opposite it.

Section edit links will be to the immediate right of section titles, instead of on the far right. If you're an editor of one of the wikis which already implemented this change, nothing will substantially change for you; however, scripts and gadgets depending on the previous implementation of section edit links will have to be adjusted to continue working; however, nothing else should break even if they are not updated in time.

Detailed information and a timeline is available on meta.

Ideas to do this all the way to 2009 at least. It is often difficult to track which of several potential section edit links on the far right is associated with the correct section, and many readers and anonymous or new editors may even be failing to notice section edit links at all, since they read section titles, which are far away from the links.

To find out about how you can help with translations visit the TranslationCentral for VisualEditor and read the easy instructions on bringing information to your Wikipedia. The User Guide and the FAQ are very important to have in your language.

We want to find out as much as we can from you about VisualEditor and how it helps your Wikipedia, and having local pages is a great way to start. We also encourage you to leave feedback on Mediawiki where the community can offer ideas, opinions, and point out bugs that may still exist in the software that need to be reported to Bugzilla. If you are able to speak for the concerns of others in English on MediaWiki or locally I encourage you to help your community to be represented in this process.

If you can help translate the user interface for VisualEditor to your language, you can help with that as well. Translatewiki has open tasks for translating VisualEditor. A direct link to translate the user interface is here. You can see how we are doing with those translations here. You need an account on Translatewiki to translate. This account is free and easy to create.

If we can help your community in any way with this process, please let me know and I will do my best to assist your Wikipedia with this |exciting development. You can contact me on my meta talk page or by email. You can also contact Patrick Earley for help with translations and documents on Mediawiki. We look forward to working with you to bring the VisualEditor experience to your Wikipedia! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 18:59, 30 lugliu 2013 (UTC)

Non c'è bisogno che traduciate :) Sto passando nelle wiki delle lingue parlate in Italia per annunciare una novità che molto probabilmente non conoscete ancora: si chiama VisualEditor. Sarà la nuova interfaccia per creare e modificare testi nei nostri siti, e renderà molto più semplice editare, il che potrebbe voler dire più utenti che arrivano, provano a scrivere, restano nella comunità. Per provarlo potete attivarlo subito tramite la pagina "Preferenze", nell'equivalente della sezione "Casella di modifica", selezionando l'opzione Abilita VisualEditor (solo nei namespace principale e Utente). Solo se per il momento si desidera continuare a usare l'editor tradizionale per la modifica di singole sezioni, si può spuntare anche la casella Utilizza l'editor di wikitesto per modificare le sezioni. Io faccio da referente per la comunità italofona, e perciò, per come la vedo io, anche per voi: se avete bisogno di aiuto o volete segnalare un bug scrivetemi qui, così cercheremo di risolvere eventuali problematiche il prima possibile e anche questa wiki sarà pronta nel momento in cui la transizione sarà completata. Vi lascio infine i link alle FAQ e al Manuale, e spero di avere presto vostre notizie. Vi raccomando di attivarvi subito con le traduzioni e gli aggiornamenti dei template per la vostra lingua, in modo da essere pronti per quando ci sarà il lancio ufficiale, previsto poco dopo Ferragosto. Ciao, --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 10:17, 3 aostu 2013 (UTC)

HTTPS for users with an account[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Greetings. Starting on August 21 (tomorrow), all users with an account will be using HTTPS to access Wikimedia sites. HTTPS brings better security and improves your privacy. More information is available at m:HTTPS.

If HTTPS causes problems for you, tell us on bugzilla, on IRC (in the #wikimedia-operations channel) or on meta. If you can't use the other methods, you can also send an e-mail to https@wikimedia.org.

Notifications[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Notifications inform you of new activity that affects you -- and let you take quick action.

(This message is in English, please translate as needed)

Greetings!

Notifications will inform users about new activity that affects them on this wiki in a unified way: for example, this new tool will let you know when you have new talk page messages, edit reverts, mentions or links -- and is designed to augment (rather than replace) the watchlist. The Wikimedia Foundation's editor engagement team developed this tool (code-named 'Echo') earlier this year, to help users contribute more productively to MediaWiki projects.

We're now getting ready to bring Notifications to almost all other Wikimedia sites, and are aiming for a 22 October deployment, as outlined in this release plan. It is important that notifications is translated for all of the languages we serve.

There are three major points of translation needed to be either done or checked:

Please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions or comments about this new tool. For more information, visit this project hub and this help page. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 18:15, 4 uttobre 2013 (UTC)

Introducting Beta Features[mudificà | edità a fonte]

(Apologies for writing in English. Please translate if necessary)

We would like to let you know about Beta Features, a new program from the Wikimedia Foundation that lets you try out new features before they are released for everyone.

Think of it as a digital laboratory where community members can preview upcoming software and give feedback to help improve them. This special preference page lets designers and engineers experiment with new features on a broad scale, but in a way that's not disruptive.

Beta Features is now ready for testing on MediaWiki.org. It will also be released on Wikimedia Commons and MetaWiki this Thursday, 7 November. Based on test results, the plan is to release it on all wikis worldwide on 21 November, 2013.

Here are the first features you can test this week:

Would you like to try out Beta Features now? After you log in on MediaWiki.org, a small 'Beta' link will appear next to your 'Preferences'. Click on it to see features you can test, check the ones you want, then click 'Save'. Learn more on the Beta Features page.

After you've tested Beta Features, please let the developers know what you think on this discussion page -- or report any bugs here on Bugzilla. You're also welcome to join this IRC office hours chat on Friday, 8 November at 18:30 UTC.

Beta Features was developed by the Wikimedia Foundation's Design, Multimedia and VisualEditor teams. Along with other developers, they will be adding new features to this experimental program every few weeks. They are very grateful to all the community members who helped create this project — and look forward to many more productive collaborations in the future.

Enjoy, and don't forget to let developers know what you think! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 19:36, 5 nuvembre 2013 (UTC)

VisualEditor in arrivo su questa wiki[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Ciao a tutti. VisualEditor arriverà su questo progetto il 2 dicembre 2013. Come anticipato nei mesi scorsi, VisualEditor è un software in fase di sviluppo che permette agli utenti di modificare le pagine di questo sito senza imparare prima la “wikisintassi” (ad es. [[ e ]] per linkare a un’altra pagina). E’ già disponibile e attivo su molte altre Wikipedia (ad es., oltre a quella in italiano, quelle in napolitano, siciliano e veneto), e in realtà potreste già averlo testato anche qui abilitandolo dalle Preferenze come suggeritovi in passato. Per ulteriori informazioni si può leggere comunque questa pagina.

Una volta che il software sarà attivato potrete scegliere se usare VE o l’editor tradizionale. Cliccando su “Modifica” sarà lanciato VisualEditor; per usare l’editor classico invece basterà premere “Modifica sorgente”. E’ a vostra disposizione un manuale apposito per imparare a usare correttamente VE.

Ci auguriamo che il software sia utile a editor attuali e futuri di questa comunità, e ci servirebbe proprio il vostro aiuto per migliorarlo! Per favore, comunicateci eventuali difficoltà riscontrate durante l’utilizzo. Se ve la sentite, potete riportare il problema su Bugzilla usando la nuova procedura guidata semplificata. Altrimenti, descrivetelo pure sulla pagina centrale di feedback su MediaWiki.org. Se notate malfunzionamenti particolarmente gravi sul vostro progetto, potete invece segnalarceli direttamente: potete lasciare un messaggio sulla mia pagina di discussione oppure, se si tratta di un’emergenza (ad es. un bug che di punto in bianco inizia a corrompere tutte le voci quando queste vengono modificate con VisualEditor), potete scrivere a James Forrester, il Product Manager, all’indirizzo jforrester@wikimedia.org.

Se ne avete la possibilità, per favore testate il nuovo editor sin d’ora. Questo ci permetterà di venire a conoscenza di problemi specifici di questa Wikipedia prima del lancio. Per abilitarlo, basta andare sulle proprie “Preferenze” → “Casella di Modifica” → “Abilita VisualEditor”. cliccare sul link Beta (reperibile in alto su ogni pagina), e assicurarsi che il segno di spunta su VisualEditor sia presente.

Apprezzeremmo molto il vostro aiuto con le traduzioni di pagine relative a VisualEditor (qui e/o su MediaWiki.org) e dell’interfaccia utente. Per dettagli si può consultare la VisualEditor TranslationCentral. Per tradurre l’interfaccia, basta creare un account su TranslateWiki (se non se ne possiede già uno). Una volta che la richiesta dell’account viene approvata, non resta che selezionare la propria lingua da questa lista. Apparirà così una lista di messaggi: da una parte ci sarà l’originale in inglese, dall’altra l’opzione per modificare, che aprirà una finestra nella quale lavorare. Infine, un accenno alla guida dell’utente, un altro documento importante. Per tradurlo, si può semplicemente cliccare su questa pagina, e selezionare “Traduci questa pagina”. La vostra lingua sarà raggiungibile dal menù a tendina sulla destra. Se volete dare una mano con le traduzioni e discuterne, lasciatemi pure un messaggio nella mia pagina utente.

Grazie, e buon editing a tutti! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 10:52, 16 nuvembre 2013 (UTC)

PS: Rispetto a quest’estate c’è peraltro la grossa novità rappresentata dalla possibilità di passare direttamente da VE all’editor tradizionale (senza cioè dover salvare prima); il che permetterà non solo di apportare tutte le modifiche desiderate e di poter avvistare e correggere più facilmente eventuali errori, ma fungerà anche da escamotage temporaneo per quanto riguarda eventuali problemi con caratteri da inserire non presenti sulla vostra tastiera, perché terminando l'edit con l'editor tradizionale potrete selezionarli ad es. dalla tendina "Special Characters" in alto. Se invece la mia valutazione non fosse corretta, e in generale per segnalare problematicità che devono essere risolte prima dell'arrivo di VE, vi rinnovo l'invito a contattarmi tempestivamente in pagina di discussione. Grazie!


Vi segnalo che le traduzioni dell'interfaccia sono al 38%, e vi incoraggio a terminarle prima di lunedì a beneficio della comunità di lingua corsa. Allo stesso modo, il vostro aiuto è indispensabile per la traduzione delle pagine qui indicate. Buon lavoro! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 16:16, 28 nuvembre 2013 (UTC)
VisualEditor now active on this wiki
Click this icon while in VE to read the User Guide
As some of you have noticed, this Wikipedia now has VisualEditor (VE) enabled for all users. There are now two tabs for editing: "Edit" and "Edit source". Click "Edit" to use the new VisualEditor. Click "Edit Source" to edit using wikitext markup.
All edits using VE will be tagged with "Tag:VisualEditor" in recent changes, watchlists, and page histories. To access the User Guide for VisualEditor, click on the "?" icon in VisualEditor’s toolbar. If you wish to disable VisualEditor, this can be done under "Editing" in your preferences tab. Translations for VisualEditor’s user interface and its help guide are still needed; see the instructions in the post above for how to help out with this.
Please report any "bugs" or errors you come across at MediaWiki’s VisualEditor Feedback Page. Happy editing, Elitre (WMF) (talk) 13:29, 3 dicembre 2013 (UTC) PS: not sure which language you prefer, please comment on this as well :)

Request for comment on Commons: Should Wikimedia support MP4 video?[mudificà | edità a fonte]

I apologize for this message being only in English. Please translate it if needed to help your community.

The Wikimedia Foundation's multimedia team seeks community guidance on a proposal to support the MP4 video format. This digital video standard is used widely around the world to record, edit and watch videos on mobile phones, desktop computers and home video devices. It is also known as H.264/MPEG-4 or AVC.

Supporting the MP4 format would make it much easier for our users to view and contribute video on Wikipedia and Wikimedia projects -- and video files could be offered in dual formats on our sites, so we could continue to support current open formats (WebM and Ogg Theora).

However, MP4 is a patent-encumbered format, and using a proprietary format would be a departure from our current practice of only supporting open formats on our sites -- even though the licenses appear to have acceptable legal terms, with only a small fee required.

We would appreciate your guidance on whether or not to support MP4. Our Request for Comments presents views both in favor and against MP4 support, based on opinions we’ve heard in our discussions with community and team members.

Please join this RfC -- and share your advice.

All users are welcome to participate, whether you are active on Commons, Wikipedia, other Wikimedia project -- or any site that uses content from our free media repository.

You are also welcome to join tomorrow's Office hours chat on IRC, this Thursday, January 16, at 19:00 UTC, if you would like to discuss this project with our team and other community members.

We look forward to a constructive discussion with you, so we can make a more informed decision together on this important topic. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 06:46, 16 ghjennaghju 2014 (UTC)

Richiesta di commenti: strumento per l'aggiunta di caratteri speciali in VisualEditor[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Ciao, è stato appena aggiunto uno strumento per l'aggiunta di caratteri speciali quando si edita con VisualEditor. Se avete tempo, per favore, provatelo e fate sapere agli sviluppatori cosa ne pensate.

Screenshot of TranslateWiki interface
Il menù a tendina Inserisci nella barra di VE vi permetterà di accedere tramite l'opzione 'Carattere speciale'
Screenshot of Special Characters tool
Ecco il nuovo selettore. I vostri commenti in merito sono particolarmente graditi.

Gli sviluppatori apprezzerebbero molto se lasciaste un messaggio con il vostro feedback e la/e lingua/e usata/e per il test in questo thread su Mediawiki.org. E' davvero importante sentire i pareri di quante più persone possibile. Grazie! Elitre (WMF) (discussioni) 18:13, 24 ghje 2014 (UTC)

Ciao, nel riportare la vostra attenzione sull'argomento, vi propongo alcune domande specifiche del Product Manager di VisualEditor.
  • Dovremmo limitarci a mostrare l'intero set di caratteri presenti nello strumento "Caratteri speciali" nella toolbar dell'editor di wikitesto?
    • Se sì, non sarà eccessivo? Come farete a trovare il carattere che cercate? Cosa dovremmo fare per gli utenti che non hanno abbastanza spazio per visualizzare tutto?
  • Dovrebbe esserci una sezione "prioritaria" per quella dozzina o poco più di caratteri più usati regolarmente? Va bene un click in più per andare oltre un set così limitato?
    • Come dovrebbero essere suddivise le sezioni? Dovrebbero essere annidate? Ordinate?
    • Come si dovrebbe poter navigare tra le sezioni? Dovrebbe esserci un menù a scomparsa? Un menù annidato (cioè, con sotto-menù)?
  • Lo strumento dovrebbe essere disponibile permanentemente finché non viene nascosto? Dovrebbe apparire vicino al mouse? Dovrebbe sparire dopo ogni selezione, o 10 secondi dopo una selezione se non ne avvengono altre nel frattempo?
  • La toolbar ha già troppe opzioni - come la semplifichiamo?
Grazie a tutti per il vostro impegno nel testare VE! Se l'inglese è il vostro pane quotidiano, rispondete direttamente su mw:VisualEditor/Feedback; altrimenti fatevi sentire qui. A presto, --Elitre (WMF) (discussioni) 17:01, 12 fer 2014 (UTC)

Office hours in arrivo[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Ciao, anche questo mese sono previsti degli "orari di ricevimento" :) durante i quali è possibile chiacchierare di VisualEditor insieme al suo Product Manager, James Forrester, e altri membri del team. Il primo è previsto per sabato 15 alle 17 UTC, ossia le 18 italiane, mentre il successivo si terrà poche ore dopo (vedere Meta per dettagli e link alla chat). Chi non si trova a suo agio con l'inglese o non può partecipare può lasciare eventuali domande qui. Di solito l'evento è abbastanza affollato e si tende a dare la precedenza ai partecipanti, anche perché così è senz'altro più semplice per James e altri ottenere a loro volta dei chiarimenti, ma in genere si riesce a far pervenire a ognuno una risposta in qualche modo, fosse anche in privato. Il registro della chat è pubblico e visibile a partire da poche ore dopo che questa si è tenuta. Grazie per l'attenzione, --Elitre (WMF) (discussioni) 13:02, 10 fer 2014 (UTC)

Universal Language Selector will be enabled by default again on this wiki by 21 February 2014[mudificà | edità a fonte]

On January 21 2014 the MediaWiki extension Universal Language Selector (ULS) was disabled on this wiki. A new preference was added for logged-in users to turn on ULS. This was done to prevent slow loading of pages due to ULS webfonts, a behaviour that had been observed by the Wikimedia Technical Operations team on some wikis.

We are now ready to enable ULS again. The temporary preference to enable ULS will be removed. A new checkbox has been added to the Language Panel to enable/disable font delivery. This will be unchecked by default for this wiki, but can be selected at any time by the users to enable webfonts. This is an interim solution while we improve the feature of webfonts delivery.

You can read the announcement and the development plan for more information. Apologies for writing this message only in English. Thank you. Runa

Changes to the default site typography coming soon[mudificà | edità a fonte]

This week, the typography on Wikimedia sites will be updated for all readers and editors who use the default "Vector" skin. This change will involve new serif fonts for some headings, small tweaks to body content fonts, text size, text color, and spacing between elements. The schedule is:

  • April 1st: non-Wikipedia projects will see this change live
  • April 3rd: Wikipedias will see this change live

This change is very similar to the "Typography Update" Beta Feature that has been available on Wikimedia projects since November 2013. After several rounds of testing and with feedback from the community, this Beta Feature will be disabled and successful aspects enabled in the default site appearance. Users who are logged in may still choose to use another skin, or alter their personal CSS, if they prefer a different appearance. Local common CSS styles will also apply as normal, for issues with local styles and scripts that impact all users.

Importanti aggiornamenti relativi a VisualEditor[mudificà | edità a fonte]

La newsletter globale (in inglese) fornisce dettagli meno tecnici e concentra l'attenzione sulle novità che possono interessare maggiormente gli utenti dei progetti WMF.
  • Ciao a tutti. Potete partecipare alla prossima office hour con James Forrester, Product Manager di VisualEditor, collegandovi a IRC sabato 19 aprile alle 20:00 UTC per un dibattito sullo stato attuale dell'editor e sugli sviluppi previsti nell'immediato futuro.
  • VE è cambiato molto recentemente; se non ne eravate al corrente, significa che dovete proprio iscrivervi alle newsletter relative! Vedere qui per quella in italiano; c'è da dire però che quella in inglese viene pubblicata più spesso e soprattutto potete riceverla su questo sito oppure su Meta.
  • Lo sapevate? Ci sono solo due pagine da consultare per controllare a che punto stanno le traduzioni nella vostra lingua relative a VisualEditor. Siete nella zona verde (bene!) o in quella rossa (male!)? Scopritelo subito, e poi cliccate su codice e nome della lingua per aggiornare le traduzioni!

Importanti annunci relativi a VisualEditor[mudificà | edità a fonte]

VisualEditor-logo.svg
Sentitevi liberi di tradurre questo messaggio nella lingua di questa wiki, se lo ritenete opportuno. Grazie!

Ciao a tutti. Dal momento che la squadra dei Community Liaison di cui faccio parte viene reclutata su sempre più wiki e per altri software, vi annuncio alcuni cambiamenti in merito al nostro modo di relazionarci con le Wikipedia con le quali abbiamo tenuto i contatti sinora.

  • Stiamo incoraggiando a lasciare commenti sulla pagina relativa di mediawiki.org, perché è quella che da ora in poi riceverà in modo centralizzato i feedback da pressoché tutte le Wikipedia, e che quindi l'intera squadra monitorerà per questo motivo. Apprezziamo comunque l'assistenza dei membri di questa comunità, e cogliamo l'occasione per ringraziare i più attivi per il prezioso supporto che sicuramente non ci faranno mancare anche in futuro! Se vedete richieste relative a VisualEditor su questa Wikipedia alle quali potete rispondere direttamente, o se volete invece tradurle in inglese e riportarle su mediawiki.org, siete davvero i benvenuti. Ad ogni modo, per agevolarvi ulteriormente anche sul piano linguistico, vi ricordo che avete comunque la possibilità di pormi direttamente i vostri quesiti su Wikipedia in italiano, in alternativa.
  • Abbiamo esteso a tutte le Wikipedia la possibilità di ricevere la "newsletter globale", solitamente pubblicata su en.wiki. Iscrivetevi su Meta; questo bollettino includerà gli aggiornamenti e gli annunci più importanti, così vedrete meno messaggi da parte nostra su questa pagina. Pubblicheremo qui il prossimo numero; per ricevere i successivi invece aggiungete questa pagina o la vostra pagina di discussione utente (o entrambe!) alla lista dei destinatari. Potrete poi valutare se tradurre la comunicazione nella vostra lingua in modo che raggiunga ancora più persone. Anche in questo caso, se preferite potete anche iscrivervi al bollettino di VE per it.wiki, pubblicato meno frequentemente.
  • Vi invitiamo a discutere dei recenti sviluppi e dei piani per il futuro di VisualEditor durante la prossima office hour di lunedì 19 maggio (ore 20 italiane) insieme a James Forrester (Product Manager). Se non potete partecipare ma vorreste comunque fargli una domanda potete lasciarla su mediawiki.org o sulla mia pagina di discussione entro il giorno prima e cercherò di ottenere una risposta. Contiamo di proseguire con queste sessioni mensili finché la comunità dimostrerà interesse.
  • Vi ricordiamo infine che i modi per raggiungere i Community Liaison sono elencati sulle nostre rispettive pagine utente, e che un messaggio in pagina di discussione utente è sempre un ottimo modo per richiamare la nostra attenzione o semplicemente tenersi in contatto.
Grazie per l'attenzione! Utente:Elitre (WMF) 14:32, 9 mag 2014 (UTC)

VisualEditor global newsletter—May 2014[mudificà | edità a fonte]

This is a one-time mailing to projects that may need this information. Future newsletters will be available as opt-in only. To receive future newsletters (about one per month), please add your page to the subscribers' list at m:VisualEditor/Newsletter. You're welcome to translate to your language.


Since the last newsletter, the VisualEditor team has mostly worked on the new citation tool, improving performance, reducing technical debt, and other infrastructure needs.

VisualEditor-logo.svg

Did you know?

VisualEditor - Editing References - Cite Pulldown.png

The cite menu offers quick access to up to five citation templates.  If your wiki has enabled the "Cita" menu, press "Cita" and select the appropriate template from the menu.

Existing citations that use these templates can be edited either using the "Cita" tool or by selecting the reference and choosing the "Referenza" item in the "Inserisci" menu.

Read the user guide for more information.

The biggest change in the last few weeks is the new citation template menu, labeled "Cita". The new citation menu offers a locally configurable list of citation templates on the main toolbar. It adds or opens references using the simplified template dialog that was deployed last month. This tool is in addition to the "Referenza" item in the "Inserisci" menu, and it is not displayed unless it has been configured for that wiki. To enable this tool on your wiki, see the instructions at VisualEditor/Citation tool.

Eventually, the VisualEditor team plans to add autofill features for these citations. When this long-awaited feature is created, you could add an ISBN, URL, DOI or other identifier to the citation tool, and VisualEditor would automatically fill in as much information for that source as possible. The concept drawings can be seen at mw:VisualEditor/Design/Reference Dialog, and your ideas about making referencing quick and easy are still wanted.

  • There is a new Beta Feature for setting content language and direction.  This allows editors who have opted in to use the "Linguaghju" tool in the "Inserisci" menu to add HTML span tags that label text with the language and as being left-to-right (LTR) or right-to-left (RTL), like this:  <span lang="en" dir="ltr">English</span>. This tool is most useful for pages whose text combines multiple languages with different directions, common on Right-to-Left wikis.
  • The tool for editing mathematics formulae in VisualEditor has been slightly updated and is now available to all users, as the "Formula" item in the "Inserisci" menu. It uses LaTeX like in the wikitext editor.
  • The layout of template dialogs has been changed, putting the label above the field.  Parameters are now called "fields", to avoid a technical term that many editors are unfamiliar with.
  • TemplateData has been expanded:  You can now add "suggested" parameters in TemplateData, and VisualEditor will display them in the template dialogs like required ones.  "Suggested" is recommended for parameters that are commonly used, but not actually required to make the template work.  There is also a new type for TemplateData parameters: wiki-file-name, for file names.  The template tool can now tell you if a parameter is marked as being obsolete.
  • Some templates that previously displayed strangely due to absolute CSS positioning hacks should now display correctly.
  • Several messages have changed: The notices shown when you save a page have been merged into those used in the wikitext editor, for consistency.  The message shown when you "Cancellà" out of an edit is clearer. The beta dialog notice, which is shown the first time you open VisualEditor, will be hidden for logged-in users via a user preference rather than a cookie.  As a result of this change, the beta notice will show up one last time for all logged-in users on their next VisualEditor use after Thursday's upgrade.
  • Adding a category that is a redirect to another category prompts you to add the target category instead of the redirect.
  • In the "Media" dialog, it is no longer possible to set a redundant border for thumbnail and framed images.
  • There is a new Template Documentation Editor for TemplateData.  You can test it by editing a documentation subpage (not a template page) at Mediawiki.org: edit mw:Template:Sandbox/doc, and then click "Manage template documentation" above the wikitext edit box.  If your community would like to use this TemplateData editor at your project, please contact product manager James Forrester or file an enhancement request in Bugzilla.
  • There have been multiple small changes to the appearance:  External links are shown in the same light blue color as in MediaWiki.  This is a lighter shade of blue than the internal links.  The styling of the "Style text" (character formatting) drop-down menu has been synchronized with the recent font changes to the Vector skin.  VisualEditor dialogs, such as the "Arrighjistrà a pagina" dialog, now use a "loading" animation of moving lines, rather than animated GIF images.  Other changes were made to the appearance upon opening a page in VisualEditor which should make the transition between reading and editing be smoother.
  • The developers merged in many minor fixes and improvements to MediaWiki interface integration (e.g., edit notices), and made VisualEditor handle Education Program pages better.
  • At the request of the community, VisualEditor has been deployed to Commons as an opt-in. It is currently available by default for 161 Wikipedia language editions and by opt-in through Beta Features at all others, as well as on several non-Wikipedia sites.

Looking ahead:  The toolbar from the PageTriage extension will no longer be visible inside VisualEditor. More buttons and icons will be accessible from the keyboard.  The "Scorciatoie da tastiera" link will be moved out of the "Opzioni pagina" menu, into the "Aiuto" menu. Support for upright image sizes (preferred for accessibility) and inline images is being developed. You will be able to see the Table of Contents while editing. Looking further out, the developers are also working on support for viewing and editing hidden HTML comments. VisualEditor will be available to all users on mobile devices and tablet computers. It will be possible to upload images to Commons from inside VisualEditor.

If you have questions or suggestions for future improvements, or if you encounter problems, please let everyone know by posting a note at mw:VisualEditor/Feedback or by joining the office hours on Thursday, 19 June 2014 at 10:00 UTC. If you'd like to get this newsletter on your own page (about once a month), please subscribe at w:en:Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Newsletter for English Wikipedia only or at Meta for any project.

Media Viewer[mudificà | edità a fonte]


Greetings, my apologies for writing in English.

I wanted to let you know that Media Viewer will be released to this wiki in the coming weeks. Media Viewer allows readers of Wikimedia projects to have an enhanced view of files without having to visit the file page, but with more detail than a thumbnail. You can try Media Viewer out now by turning it on in your Beta Features. If you do not enjoy Media Viewer or if it interferes with your work after it is turned on you will be able to disable Media Viewer as well in your preferences. I invite you to share what you think about Media Viewer and how it can be made better in the future.

Thank you for your time. - Keegan (WMF) 21:29, 23 mag 2014 (UTC)

Using only UploadWizard for uploads[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Wikimedia Commons logo

Hello! Sorry for writing in English. It was noted that on this wiki upload is not fully functional for users, who will experience a very difficult and/or illegal uploading. In fact, the licenses/copyright tags dropdown is empty, making it hard or impossible to comply with copyright requirements during upload itself.

Presumably, you don't have interest nor energies to have hundreds templates with the now required HTML, even less a local EDP. I propose to have

so that you can avoid local maintenance and all users can have a functioning, easy upload interface in their own language. All registered users can upload on Commons and existing files will not be affected.

All this will get done around 2014-07-03.

  1. If you disagree with the proposal, just remove your wiki from the list. Remember also to create MediaWiki:Licenses locally with any content (see a simple example), or uploads will be soon disabled anyway by MediaWiki itself (starting in version 1.24wmf11).
  2. To make the UploadWizard even better, please tell your experience and ideas on commons:Commons:Upload Wizard feedback.

Media Viewer is now live on this wiki[mudificà | edità a fonte]


Media Viewer lets you see images in larger size

Greetings— and sorry for writing in English, please translate if it will help your community,

The Wikimedia Foundation's Multimedia team is happy to announce that Media Viewer was just released on this site today.

Media Viewer displays images in larger size when you click on their thumbnails, to provide a better viewing experience. Users can now view images faster and more clearly, without having to jump to separate pages — and its user interface is more intuitive, offering easy access to full-resolution images and information, with links to the file repository for editing. The tool has been tested extensively across all Wikimedia wikis over the past six months as a Beta Feature and has been released to the largest Wikipedias, all language Wikisources, and the English Wikivoyage already.

If you do not like this feature, you can easily turn it off by clicking on "Disable Media Viewer" at the bottom of the screen, pulling up the information panel (or in your your preferences) whether you have an account or not. Learn more in this Media Viewer Help page.

Please let us know if you have any questions or comments about Media Viewer. You are invited to share your feedback in this discussion on MediaWiki.org in any language, to help improve this feature. You are also welcome to take this quick survey in English, en français, o español.

We hope you enjoy Media Viewer. Many thanks to all the community members who helped make it possible. - Fabrice Florin (WMF) (talk) 21:55, 19 ghju 2014 (UTC)

Updates related to VisualEditor[mudificà | edità a fonte]

Please help translate this message in your language. Thanks :)

Hi, everybody. This is a reminder that we invite you to discuss VisualEditor's recent development and plans ahead during the next office hours with James Forrester (Product Manager):

If you are not able to attend but have a question for James, you can leave your question at mediawiki.org or on my talk page by the day before, and I will try to get a response. We plan to continue these monthly sessions as long as there is community interest, and to announce them through the VisualEditor global newsletter as well (please subscribe your talk page there to get the latest news about the software).

Most of the VisualEditor team will be at Wikimania in London in August! You'll be able to meet the developers during the Hackaton or at the following sessions:

WMF community liaisons will share a booth with community advocates at the Community Village and look forward to talking to you there. Thanks for your attention! --User:Elitre (WMF) 16:02, 31 lug 2014 (UTC)

VisualEditor global newsletter—July and August 2014[mudificà | edità a fonte]

VisualEditor-logo.svg

The VisualEditor team is currently working mostly to fix bugs, improve performance, reduce technical debt, and other infrastructure needs. You can find on Mediawiki.org weekly updates detailing recent work.

Screenshot of VisualEditor's link tool
Dialog boxes in VisualEditor have been re-designed to use action words instead of icons. This has increased the number of items that need to be translated. The user guide is also being updated.

The biggest visible change since the last newsletter was to the dialog boxes. The design for each dialog box and window was simplified. The most commonly needed buttons are now at the top. Based on user feedback, the buttons are now labeled with simple words (like "Cancel" or "Done") instead of potentially confusing icons (like "<" or "X"). Many of the buttons to edit links, images, and other items now also show the linked page, image name, or other useful information when you click on them.

  • Hidden HTML comments (notes visible to editors, but not to readers) can now be read, edited, inserted, and removed. A small icon (a white exclamation mark on a dot) marks the location of each comments. You can click on the icon to see the comment.
  • You can now drag and drop text and templates as well as images. A new placement line makes it much easier to see where you are dropping the item. Images can no longer be dropped into the middle of paragraphs.
  • All references and footnotes (<ref> tags) are now made through the "Cita" menu, including the "Referenza" (manual formatting) footnotes and the ability to re-use an existing citation, both of which were previously accessible only through the "Inserisci" menu. The "Lista di referenze" is still added via the "Inserisci" menu.
  • When you add an image or other media file, you are now prompted to add an image caption immediately. You can also replace an image whilst keeping the original caption and other settings.
  • All tablet users visiting the mobile web version of Wikipedias will be able to opt-in to a version of VisualEditor from 14 August. You can test the new tool by choosing the beta version of the mobile view in the Settings menu.
  • The link tool has a new "Open" button that will open a linked page in another tab so you can make sure a link is the right one.
  • The "Cancel" button in the toolbar has been removed based on user testing. To cancel any edit, you can leave the page by clicking the Read tab, the back button in your browser, or closing the browser window without saving your changes.

Looking ahead[mudificà | edità a fonte]

The team posts details about planned work on the VisualEditor roadmap. The VisualEditor team plans to add auto-fill features for citations soon. Your ideas about making referencing quick and easy are still wanted. Support for upright image sizes is being developed. The designers are also working on support for adding rows and columns to tables. Work to support Internet Explorer is ongoing.

Feedback opportunities[mudificà | edità a fonte]

The Editing team will be making two presentations this weekend at Wikimania in London. The first is with product manager James Forrester and developer Trevor Parscal on Saturday at 16:30. The second is with developers Roan Kattouw and Trevor Parscal on Sunday at 12:30. There is a VisualEditor Translation Sprint going on during Wikimania; whether you're in London or not, any contributions are welcome!

Please share your questions, suggestions, or problems by posting a note at the VisualEditor feedback page or by joining the office hours discussion on Thursday, 14 August 2014 at 09:00 UTC (daytime for Europe, Middle East and Asia) or on Thursday, 18 September 2014 at 16:00 UTC (daytime for the Americas; evening for Europe).

If you'd like to get this newsletter on your own page (about once a month), please subscribe at w:en:Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Newsletter for English Wikipedia only or at Meta for any project. Thank you! --Elitre (WMF), 14:40, 9 aos 2014 (UTC)

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decisions[mudificà | edità a fonte]

The Wikimedia Foundation recently created a new feature, "superprotect" status. The purpose is to prevent pages from being edited by elected administrators -- but permitting WMF staff to edit them. It has been put to use in only one case: to protect the deployment of the Media Viewer software on German Wikipedia, in defiance of a clear decision of that community to disable the feature by default, unless users decide to enable it.

If you oppose these actions, please add your name to this letter. If you know non-Wikimedians who support our vision for the free sharing of knowledge, and would like to add their names to the list, please ask them to sign an identical version of the letter on change.org.

Process ideas for software development[mudificà | edità a fonte]

’’My apologies for writing in English.’’

Hello,

I am notifying you that a brainstorming session has been started on Meta to help the Wikimedia Foundation increase and better affect community participation in software development across all wiki projects. Basically, how can you be more involved in helping to create features on Wikimedia projects? We are inviting all interested users to voice their ideas on how communities can be more involved and informed in the product development process at the Wikimedia Foundation. It would be very appreciated if you could translate this message to help inform your local communities as well.

I and the rest of my team welcome you to participate. We hope to see you on Meta.

Kind regards, -- Rdicerb (WMF) talk 22:15, 21 aos 2014 (UTC)
