Prototype for editing Wikidata infoboxes on Wikipedia[edità a fonte]

Hello,

I’m sorry for writing in English. It’d be great if someone could translate this message if necessary.

One of the most requested features for Wikidata is to enable editing of Wikidata’s data directly from Wikipedia, so the editors can continue their workflow without switching websites.

The Wikidata development team has been working on a tool to achieve this goal: fill and edit the Wikipedia infoboxes with information from Wikidata, directly on Wikipedia, via the Visual Editor.

We already asked for feedback in 2015, and collected some interesting ideas which we shared with you in this thesis. Now we would like to present to you our first prototype and collect your feedback, in order to improve and continue the development of this feature.

We present this work to you very early, so we can include your feedback before and all along the development. You are the core users of this feature, so we want to make sure that it fits your needs and editing processes.

You will find the prototype, description of the features, and a demo video, on this page. Feel free to add any comment or feedback on the talk page. The page is currently not translated in every languages, but you can add your contribution by helping to translate it.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to follow all the discussions on Wikipedia, so if you want to be sure that your feedback is read, please add it on the Wikidata page, in your favorite language. Thanks for your understanding.

Thanks, Lea Lacroix (WMDE) 00:00, 1 dic 2017 (UTC)

New notification when a page is connected to Wikidata[edità a fonte]

Hello all,

(Aiutaci a tradurre nella tua lingua)

The Wikidata development team is about to deploy a new feature on all Wikipedias. It is a new type of notification (via Echo, the notification system you see at the top right of your wiki when you are logged in), that will inform the creator of a page, when this page is connected to a Wikidata item.

You may know that Wikidata provides a centralized system for all the interwikilinks. When a new page is created, it should be connected to the corresponding Wikidata item, by modifying this Wikidata item. With this new notification, editors creating pages will be informed when another editor connects this page to Wikidata.

Screenshot Echo Wikibase notification.png

This feature will be deployed on May 30th on all the Wikipedias, excepting English, French and German. This feature will be disable by default for existing editors, and enabled by default for new editors.

This is the first step of the deployments, the Wikipedias and other Wikimedia projects will follow in the next months.

If you have any question, suggestion, please let me know by pinging me. You can also follow and leave a comment on the Phabricator ticket.

Thanks go to Matěj Suchánek who developed this feature!

Grazie! Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talk) 00:00, 1 dic 2017 (UTC)

presenting the project Wikipedia Cultural Diversity Observatory and asking for a vounteer in Corsican Wikipedia[edità a fonte]

Hello everyone, My name is Marc Miquel and I am a researcher from Barcelona (Universitat Pompeu Fabra). While I was doing my PhD I studied whether an identity-based motivation could be important for editor participation and I analyzed content representing the editors' cultural context in 40 Wikipedia language editions. Few months later, I propose creating the Wikipedia Cultural Diversity Observatory in order to raise awareness on Wikipedia’s current state of cultural diversity, providing datasets, visualizations and statistics, and pointing out solutions to improve intercultural coverage.

I am presenting this project to a grant and I expect that the site becomes a useful tool to help communities create more multicultural encyclopaedias and bridge the content culture gap that exists across language editions (one particular type of systemic bias). For instance, this would help spreading cultural content local to Corsican Wikipedia into the rest of Wikipedia language editions, and viceversa, make Corsican Wikipedia much more multicultural. Here is the link of the project proposal: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Project/Wikipedia_Cultural_Diversity_Observatory_(WCDO)

I am searching for a volunteer in each language community: I still need one for the Corsican Wikipedia. If you feel like it, you can contact me at: marcmiquel *at* gmail.com I need a contact in your every community who can (1) check the quality of the cultural context article list I generate to be imported-exported to other language editions, (2) test the interface/data visualizations in their language, and (3) communicate the existance of the tool/site when ready to the language community and especially to those editors involved in projects which could use it or be aligned with it. Communicating it might not be a lot of work, but it will surely have a greater impact if done in native language! :). If you like the project, I'd ask you to endorse it in the page I provided. In any case, I will appreciate any feedback, comments,... Thanks in advance for your time! Best regards, --Marcmiquel (discussioni) 08:56, 11 utt 2017 (UTC) Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona

Hi all,

as announced previously, permission handling for CSS/JS pages has changed: only members of the interface-admin (Amministratori dell'interfaccia) group, and a few highly privileged global groups such as stewards, can edit CSS/JS pages that they do not own (that is, any page ending with .css or .js that is either in the MediaWiki: namespace or is another user's user subpage). This is done to improve the security of readers and editors of Wikimedia projects. More information is available at Creation of separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JS. If you encounter any unexpected problems, please contact me or file a bug.

Machine translation support enabled today for Content Translation[edità a fonte]

Aiutaci a tradurre nella tua lingua

Hello, machine translation support for Content Translation (beta feature) has now been extended and enabled for users of this Wikipedia, with the inclusion of Google Translate. It can be used when translating Wikipedia articles with Content Translation. To start using this service, please choose Google Translate from the Automatic Translation dropdown menu that you see on the sidebar after you start translating an article.

Please note, machine translation is available from all the languages that are supported by Google Translate, but Content Translation can still be used in the usual manner for translating from all languages, with or without machine translation support. While machine translation exists to aid creation of content conveniently, we would like to emphasise that before publishing, the final content should always be reviewed to avoid errors and ambiguity. We hope that your wiki community will find this new service useful, and that it will help you create more articles in your language.

Wikimedia Foundation and Google have collaborated to work out an agreement that allows the use of Google Translate without compromising Wikipedia’s policy of attribution of rights, privacy of our users and brand representation. For more information, we request you to kindly take a look at the details about machine translation services in Content Translation and about Google Translate translation services. You can also read the main announcement on Wikimedia news. Please note, translations made using Content Translation are also used to improve machine translation services.

We have tested the service for use, but there could be unknown problems that we are not aware of yet. Please do let us know on our Project Talk page if you face any problems using Content Translation. This message is only in English and we will be very grateful if it could be translated into for other users of this Wikipedia.

Thank you. -- On behalf of WMF Language team: Runa Bhattacharjee (WMF) (talk) 16:15, 9 ghje 2019 (UTC)

Multilingual Shared Templates and Modules[edità a fonte]

Hello co-wiki community! (Aiutaci a tradurre nella tua lingua)

I recently organized a project to share templates and modules between wikis. It allows modules and templates to be “language-neutral”, and store all text translations on Commons. This means that it is enough to copy/paste a template without any changes, and update the translations separately. If someone fixes a bug or adds a new feature in the original module, you can copy/paste it again without any translation work. My bot DiBabelYurikBot can help with copying. This way users can spend more time on content, and less time on updating and copying templates. Please see project page for details and ask questions on talk page.

P.S. I am currently running for the Wikimedia board, focusing on content and support of multi-language communities. If you liked my projects like maps, graphs, or this one, I will be happy to receive your support. (any registered user group can vote). Thank you! --Yurik (talk) 06:01, 11 mag 2019 (UTC)

Élection communautaire au Conseil d'administration de Wikimédia France[edità a fonte]

Aiutaci a tradurre nella tua lingua

Ce message est déposé ici car Wikimédia France a identifié la langue de votre projet comme étant un des langues de France.
This message is posted here because Wikimedia France has identified the language of your project as being one of the languages ​​of France.

Bonjour à toutes et tous,

Le 23 février dernier l'association Wikimédia France s'est dotée de nouveaux statuts. Dorénavant, un siège du Conseil d'administration de Wikimédia France est réservé à une personne désignée par la communauté des contributeurs aux différents projets Wikimedia[1].

Wikimédia France est une association à but non lucratif, de type loi 1901, qui soutient et promeut les différents projets Wikimedia en France mais n'exerce aucun rôle éditorial ni aucun rôle d'hébergeur de ces projets. Elle est juridiquement indépendante des projets et de la Wikimedia Foundation.

Néanmoins, il est sûr que la notoriété de l'association est entièrement issue de celle des différents projets, ce qui détermine en grande partie sa capacité à rencontrer les acteurs institutionnels et associatifs et à attirer la générosité du public. D'autre part, les marques, les logos et un peu moins de la moitié des ressources de Wikimédia France[2] sont issues d'un accord avec la Wikimedia Foundation, organe central du mouvement wikimédien. En bref, l'essentiel de la capacité d'action de Wikimédia France est rendu possible grâce à votre travail. C'est pourquoi Wikimédia France a pensé qu'il est légitime qu'une personne désignée par la communauté des contributeurs puisse siéger à son Conseil d'administration. Une fois désignée, la personne sera formellement investie en novembre par un vote de l'Assemblée générale de l'association, seule instance souveraine en cette matière. En tant que membre du Conseil d'administration, la personne choisie pourra exercer les rôles de contrôle, de gestion et de conseil stratégique pour l'association[3].

Le dépôt des candidatures sera possible à partir du 1er septembre 2019 et le vote sera ouvert du 20 au 30 septembre 2019.

Toutes les informations utiles (calendrier détaillé, droit de vote, conditions d'éligibilité, etc.) sont à retrouver sur m:Wikimédia France/Gouvernance/Siège_communautaire. Fin août / début septembre, une session « posez toutes les questions que vous voulez » (ask me everything), sera organisée en ligne pour répondre aux diverses interrogations.

Enfin, Wikimédia France souhaite mettre en place une commission électorale recueillant et validant les candidatures et surveillant ce processus électoral. Si la fonction vous intéresse, vous pouvez vous signaler à election at wikimedia.fr

Update on the consultation about office actions[edità a fonte]

Hello all,

Last month, the Wikimedia Foundation's Trust & Safety team announced a future consultation about partial and/or temporary office actions. We want to let you know that the draft version of this consultation has now been posted on Meta.

This is a draft. It is not intended to be the consultation itself, which will be posted on Meta likely in early September. Please do not treat this draft as a consultation. Instead, we ask your assistance in forming the final language for the consultation.

For that end, we would like your input over the next couple of weeks about what questions the consultation should ask about partial and temporary Foundation office action bans and how it should be formatted. Please post it on the draft talk page. Our goal is to provide space for the community to discuss all the aspects of these office actions that need to be discussed, and we want to ensure with your feedback that the consultation is presented in the best way to encourage frank and constructive conversation.

Please visit the consultation draft on Meta-wiki and leave your comments on the draft’s talk page about what the consultation should look like and what questions it should ask.

Ciao. Apologies if you are not reading this message in your native language. Aiutaci a tradurre nella tua lingua if necessary. Grazie!

There are a lot of conversations happening about the future of our movement names. We hope that you are part of these discussions and that your community is represented.

Since 16 June, the Foundation Brand Team has been running a survey in 7 languages about 3 naming options. There are also community members sharing concerns about renaming in a Community Open Letter.

Our goal in this call for feedback is to hear from across the community, so we encourage you to participate in the survey, the open letter, or both. The survey will go through 7 July in all timezones. Input from the survey and discussions will be analyzed and published on Meta-Wiki.

Thanks for thinking about the future of the movement, --The Brand Project team, 19:44, 2 lug 2020 (UTC)

Note: The survey is conducted via a third-party service, which may subject it to additional terms. For more information on privacy and data-handling, see the survey privacy statement.

Ciao a tutti, scusatemi per l'italiano. Ho notato che su questa Wiki viene utilizzato quello di Londra (UTC), vorrei proporre di cambiare l'orario da quello di Londra a quello di Roma (CET/CEST).

Ho pensato che si può tenere una votazione su questa pagina (mi è venuta in mente solo quella) perché si potrebbe includere alcune Wiki regionali che hanno ancora l'orario di Londra, anche per lasciare un evidenza quando andrò a fare una richiesta su Phabricator. Che ne pensate? --S4b1nuz ᴇ.656(SMS) 16:24, 29 lug 2020 (UTC)

Dialect policy on Corsican Wiki[edità a fonte]

Hello! I am visiting from the Rusyn Wikipedia. I have been reading about the Corsican language situation, specifically accommodating various regional varieties. If you have the time to explain, it would be great to know how it works in practice on Wikipedia, e.g. what varieties you normally use, how you managed translating the interface etc. Rusyn is also a language with several varieties, so it would be useful to learn from your experience. Thank you and all the best. Engelseziekte (discussioni) 22:15, 13 sit 2020 (UTC)

IMPORTANT: Admin activity review[edità a fonte]

Hello. A policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, interface administrator, etc.) was adopted by global community consensus in 2013. According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing administrators' activity on all Wikimedia Foundation wikis with no inactivity policy. To the best of our knowledge, your wiki does not have a formal process for removing "advanced rights" from inactive accounts. This means that the stewards will take care of this according to the admin activity review.

We have determined that the following users meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no logged actions for more than 2 years):

  1. Az1568 (administrator)

These users will receive a notification soon, asking them to start a community discussion if they want to retain some or all of their rights. If the users do not respond, then their advanced rights will be removed by the stewards.

However, if you as a community would like to create your own activity review process superseding the global one, want to make another decision about these inactive rights holders, or already have a policy that we missed, then please notify the stewards on Meta-Wiki so that we know not to proceed with the rights review on your wiki. Thanks, --علاء (discussioni) 10:36, 13 ghje 2021 (UTC)

@علاء Hi. I'm around in the sense I still get email and notifications, however, I believe this project has largely been inactive for years now. My only role since 2007 has been for the removal of pages that require deletion and dealing with spambots. I will leave it to any members of the local community who check this page to decide if they'd like me to retain my rights here. --Az1568 (discussioni) 06:56, 18 ghje 2021 (UTC)
Hello @Az1568, I'm pleased to meet you. As you can see in our stats [5], this project has not exactly been inactive :)
However, I think that a permanent rights sysop may be needed here. Best regards, --Jumpy01 (discussioni) 22:44, 20 ghje 2021 (UTC)

Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globally[edità a fonte]

Aiutaci a tradurre nella tua lingua

Hello everyone,

I apologize for posting in English. I would like to inform everyone that I created a new global request for comment (GRFC) at Meta Wiki, which may affect your project: m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

In this GRFC, I propose that two-project shortcuts for project names will become a default alias for the project namespace. For instance, on all Wikipedias, WP will be an alias to the Wikipedia: namespace (and similar for other projects). Full list is available in the GRFC.

This is already the case for Wikivoyages, and many individual projects asked for this alias to be implemented. I believe this makes it easier to access the materials in the project namespace, as well as creating shortcuts like WP:NPOV, as well as helps new projects to use this feature, without having to figure out how to request site configuration changes first.

As far as I can see, Wikipedia currently does not have such an alias set. This means that such an alias will be set for you, if the GRFC is accepted by the global community.

I would like to ask all community members to participate in the request for comment at Meta-Wiki, see m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions about this proposal.

Best regards,
--Martin Urbanec (talk) 14:12, 18 fer 2021 (UTC)
