Proposta de administradores-burócratas para Wikibooks[editar]

Desde hai tempo faíse necesario nomear algúns usuarios para levar a cabo as tarefas de administración neste wiki para evitar vandalismos, traducir a interfaz, organizalos contidos,etc. Propoño para admistradores-burócratas a Xelo2004 e a Lmbuga que teñen demostrado ser persoas moi valiosas para os proxectos que compoñen a wikipedia en galego. Nas súas edicións pode constatarse o coñecemento do proxecto e a súa capacidade para levar adiante esa responsabilidade con éxito. Un cordial saúdo. --Prevert 22:45, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Axuda de Wikibooks[editar]

Estou pensando en elaborar a axuda dos Galilibros e ocórreseme como posibilidade facer unha variación con respecto á da Galipedia consistente en crear un galilibro coa axuda. Consistiría en crear un Galilibro wikibooks:axuda con páxinas subordinadas como Wikibooks:axuda/COMOs no canto de wikibooks:COMOs e converter wikibooks:COMOs nun redirect de Wikibooks:axuda/COMOs. ¿Que vos parece?--Lmbuga 10:14, 18 decembro 2005 (UTC)

  • Paréceme ben --Alyssalover 14:29, 18 decembro 2005 (UTC)

Templates e axuda[editar]

  • Creei a páxina Wikibooks/Listado de templates e procurei enchela con tódalas templates que hai en wikibooks. Algunha habería que borrala seguramente.
  • Agradezo que me fagades observacións e críticas ó Galilibro wikibooks.Graciñas de antemán (fagades ou non)--Lmbuga 18:27, 1 xaneiro 2006 (UTC)
  • Penso ca portada de wikibooks podia servir para sustituir parte da portada actual que é provisoria. Un cordial saúdo. --Prevert 20:50, 1 xaneiro 2006 (UTC)

Revisión definitiva dos Estatutos do Capítulo de Wikimedia España[editar]

Xa se rematou coa redacción definitiva dos estatutos do futuro capítulo español da Fundación Wikimedia. Pretendeuse realizar unha redacción simple e flexible abondo para que non sexa necesario modificalos nunha boa tempada. Algúns dos detalles do funcionamiento da asociación incluiranse no futuro Reglamento de Réxime Interno para facilitar a súa modificación, xa que ese documento non necesita ser presentado no Rexistro de Asociacións e así aforramos ese papeleo.

Esta versión dos estatutos vaise someter á votación de todos os interesados para o que se abre un período de votación do 28 de abril ó 5 de maio, ámbolos dous incluídos. Oportunamente publicarase o enlace onde se poderá votar. Prégase ós que desexen propoñer textos, artigos ou frases alternativas, que non as intercalen no texto do borrador de Estatutos, para non facelo ilexible, e que trasladen as súas propostas á discusión da páxina.

Queda convocada unha reunión para o día 8 de maio de 2010 en Madrid, reunión á que poderán asistir todos os interesados, na que se procederá á firma da Acta de Constitución. Prégase a todos os interesados en firmar que acudan co seu DNI ou outra identificación oficial (Pasaporte ou Carné de Conducir), a ser posible en vigor.

Calquera dúbida ou suxerencia pode realizarse nas páxinas de meta ou na lista de correo. Saúdos, Elisardojm, --83.165.14.79 22:04, 26 de Abril de 2010 (UTC)

2010 Fundraising Is Almost Here[editar]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

Hello Wikimedians, My name is Kelly Lyman and I am working for the Wikimedia Foundation during the 2010 Fundraiser. My job is to be the liaison between your community and the Foundation. This year's fundraiser is intended to be a collaborative and global effort; we recognize that banner 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 translators who are willing to contribute to this project by helping translate and localize messages into different languages and suggesting messages that would appeal to your readers on the Fundraising Meta Page. We've started the setup on meta for both banner submission, statistical analysis, and grouping volunteers together.
Use the talk pages on meta, talk to your local communities, talk to others, talk to us, and add your feedback to the proposed messages as well! 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.

Link error[editar]

Hello. Due to a link error, B:Wikibooks:A Taberna is a sort of alternative of this page. I suggest to import these discussions here, but it's up to local community. -- Quentinv57 11:50, 23 de outubro de 2010 (UTC)

Inactive sysops[editar]

Hello. Essentially for security reasons, inactive sysops shouldn't keep the admin status. That's why I suggest to remove the flag of these four sysops, which are inactive for more than three years :

  • Moderador (sysop) inactive since 2007/05/27
  • Agremon (sysop, bureaucrat) inactive since 2006/02/01
  • Rocastelo (sysop, bureaucrat) inactive since 2006/01/07
  • Alyssalover (sysop, bureaucrat) inactive since 2005/12/18

Are there any objections ? -- Quentinv57 11:59, 23 de outubro de 2010 (UTC)

Outsider comment: I don't think there's a policy for desysopping inactive accounts on gl.wikibooks, nor is it global policy as far as I know. Jafeluv 12:11, 23 de outubro de 2010 (UTC)
I haven't seen such policy too, even if I think that we should have one globally. Do you think that removing the sysop flag on inactive accounts is a bad idea ? -- Quentinv57 13:15, 23 de outubro de 2010 (UTC)
I don't object, but don't really care either. Can't see the security vulnerabilities on that. ─ GallaecioE logo? 08:26, 25 de outubro de 2010 (UTC)
Escribo en castellano porque mi Gallego es muy de andar por casa (perdón) - He de decir, no obstante, que personalmente no creo que este sea el procedimiento adecuado. Actualmente sólo un usuario local (Gallaecio) se ha pronunciado al respecto. No creo suficiente la voz de un sólo usuario para retirar a 4 usuarios los permisos de sysop. Para que se aceptase la petición en meta se debería realizar una votación (aquí mismo, por ejemplo) y tendrían que participar al menos 3/4 usuarios (que sería la mayoría de los usuarios que participan en gl.wikibooks). Esa objeción ya ha sido pronunciada por mi colega steward Kylu quien al igual que yo ha aconsejado que si de verdad queréis retirarle los permisos a estos usuarios organicéis una votación o creeis una política sobre inactividad. Sin una de esas dos cosas nuestras manos están atadas. --Dferg 17:10, 9 de novembro de 2010 (UTC)

Como no sé que tal lo entiendes, te contestaré en castellano :) No tengo el más mínimo interés en retirarle o no los permisos a estos usuarios, personalmente. Me vale con que haya alguien pendiente del poco mantenimiento que en estos momentos le hace falta al proyecto. Y como veo por los registros que ya hay gente ocupándose de cuando en vez de pasar por aquí y realizar ese tipo de tareas, no veo necesidad alguna de darle más vueltas al asunto. ¡Un saludo! ─ GallaecioE logo? 22:22, 9 de novembro de 2010 (UTC)

Hola Gallaecio. Comprendo bastante bien el gallego por proximidad territorial a Galicia (y personal cariño a la terra) así que si te sientes más cómodo contestando en gallego no dudes en hacerlo :) - lo único que yo no podré corresponderte pues no sé escribirlo muy bien :(. Personalmente yo tengo mis creencias acerca de los permisos y la actividad; pero dado que sólo soy un usuario esporádico que viene a hacer algo de mantenimiento me las reservo :). Yo por mi parte y hasta que no existan administradores regulares aquí seguiré dándome mis vueltas para cuando haya algo que borrar. Si en algún momento tuviéseis una urgencia (i.e: vándalos) podéis contactarnos a los stewards en m:Vandalism reports o por IRC en #wikimedia-stewards. Si tienes tiempo y ganas quizás desees pedir +sysop en este proyecto. Asímismo si hay algo en lo que personalmente os pueda ayudar estoy por meta. Saludos, --Dferg 11:33, 12 de novembro de 2010 (UTC)
Grazas pola información de pola axuda :). De momento non vou pedir o de sysop, pero se entra algún vándalo xa procurarei avisar. Un saúdo! ─ GallaecioE logo? 18:00, 14 de novembro de 2010 (UTC)

Aprobación de Wikimedia España[editar]

Estimados compañeiros. Permitídeme unhas liñas para anunciar o que para moitos de nós resulta unha importante nova:

O pasado 7 de febreiro, a Fundación Wikimedia recoñeceu oficialmente a Wikimedia España como capítulo oficial da Fundación. Wikimedia España, constituída baixo a figura de asociación sen ánimo de lucro e xuridicamente independente, ten como obxectivo conseguir os mesmos intereses que a Fundación Wikimedia en territorio español, promover o coñecemento libre e apoiar tódolos proxectos de Wikimedia en calquera das súas linguas.

O recoñecemento oficial de Wikimedia España produciuse despois de máis de tres anos de traballo durante os cales decenas de usuarios promoveron de diverso modo a creación do capítulo español. Este fito non sería posible sen a axuda desinteresada das devanditas persoas, as cales están comprometidas cos principios do coñecemento libre e cren nas posibilidades que o asociacionismo activo ten para promover este movemento global. Como?, de moitas maneiras: conferencias, concursos, xornadas, talleres, comunicación coa prensa, intercesión ante as administracións para conseguir a liberación de datos, etc. Traducido aos proxectos de Wikimedia, incluído este, fomentar este tipo de actividades permitirá mellorar a cantidade e calidade dos contidos, captar novos colaboradores e asegurar a súa viabilidade económica. Os éxitos doutros capítulos oficiais avalan esta estratexia.

Ademais, Wikimedia España contempla a posibilidade de conformar estruturas de acción local para axilizar a realización de actividades a nivel autonómico, provincial ou municipal; fomentar a relación con outros capítulos da Fundación Wikimedia, presentes e futuros; e apoiar outros proxectos que, aínda non gardando relación directa coa Fundación Wikimedia, si compartan os seus obxectivos básicos de ofrecer información que poida ser libremente utilizada, estudada, redistribuída e modificada.

Se alguén considera interesantes os obxectivos de Wikimedia España e desexa informarse máis, pode facelo a través de:

Un saúdo, --Elisardojm 00:18, 20 de febreiro de 2011 (UTC)

P.D: Agora, en canto a cousa comece a rodar un pouco, o que vai facer falta son proxectos e ideas, así que as cousas que se vos ocorran serán benvidas e a asociación tentará facer todo o que poda por elas.

Call for image filter referendum[editar]

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.

Sorry for delivering you a message in English. Please help translate the pages on the referendum on Meta and join the translators mailing list.

Hello,

The Wikimedia Foundation is discussing changes to its Terms of Use. The discussion can be found at Talk:Terms of use. Everyone is invited to join in. 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.

Announcing Wikipedia 1.19 beta[editar]

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 00:10, 15 de xaneiro de 2012 (UTC)

MediaWiki 1.19[editar]

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.) The Wikimedia Foundation is planning to upgrade MediaWiki (the software powering this wiki) to its latest version this month. You can help to test it before it is enabled, to avoid disruption and breakage. More information is available in the full announcement. Thank you for your understanding.

Update on IPv6[editar]

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[editar]

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.

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.

We regret that you receive this message in English; we intended to use banners to notify you in your native language but there was both, human and technical resistance.

See you on Commons! --Picture of the Year 2011 Committee 18:18, 5 de xuño de 2012 (UTC)

Mobile view as default view coming soon[editar]

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

The mobile view of this project and others will soon become the default view on mobile devices (except tablets). Some language versions of these projects currently show no content on the mobile home page, and it is a good time to do a little formatting so users get a mobile-friendly view, or to add to existing mobile content if some already exists.

If you are an administrator, please consider helping with this change. There are instructions which are being translated. The proposed date of switching the default view is July 5.

Help decide about more than $10 million of Wikimedia donations in the coming year[editar]

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.

Request for Comment: Legal Fees Assistance Program[editar]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

I apologize for addressing you in English. I would be grateful if you could translate this message into your language.

The Wikimedia Foundation is conducting a request for comment on a proposed program that could provide legal assistance to users in specific support roles who are named in a legal complaint as a defendant because of those roles. We wanted to be sure that your community was aware of this discussion and would have a chance to participate in that discussion.

If this page is not the best place to publicize this request for comment, please help spread the word to those who may be interested in participating. (If you'd like to help translating the "request for comment", program policy or other pages into your language and don't know how the translation system works, please come by my user talk page at m:User talk:Mdennis (WMF). I'll be happy to assist or to connect you with a volunteer who can assist.)

Wikidata is getting close to a first roll-out[editar]

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[editar]

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)!

Thanks!

Be a Wikimedia fundraising "User Experience" volunteer![editar]

Thank you to everyone who volunteered last year on the Wikimedia fundraising 'User Experience' project. We have talked to many different people in different countries and their feedback has helped us immensely in restructuring our pages. If you haven't heard of it yet, the 'User Experience' project has the goal of understanding the donation experience in different countries (outside the USA) and enhancing the localization of our donation pages.

I am (still) searching for volunteers to spend some time 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 very low amounts, like 1-2 dollars)**

Wikimedia sites to move to primary data center in Ashburn, Virginia. Read-only mode expected.[editar]

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.) Next week, the Wikimedia Foundation will transition its main technical operations to a new data center in Ashburn, Virginia, USA. This is intended to improve the technical performance and reliability of all Wikimedia sites, including this wiki. There will be some times when the site will be in read-only mode, and there may be full outages; the current target windows for the migration are January 22nd, 23rd and 24th, 2013, from 17:00 to 01:00 UTC (see other timezones on timeanddate.com). More information is available in the full announcement.

If you would like to stay informed of future technical upgrades, consider becoming a Tech ambassador and joining the ambassadors mailing list. You will be able to help your fellow Wikimedians have a voice in technical discussions and be notified of important decisions.

Thank you for your help and your understanding.

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[editar]

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

Convert complex templates to Lua to make them faster and more powerful[editar]

(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.

[en] Change to wiki account system and account renaming[editar]

Some accounts will soon be renamed due to a technical change that the developer team at Wikimedia are making. More details on Meta.

[en] Change to section edit links[editar]

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.

Pywikipedia is migrating to git[editar]

Hello, Sorry for English but It's very important for bot operators so I hope someone translates this. Pywikipedia is migrating to Git so after July 26, SVN checkouts won't be updated If you're using Pywikipedia you have to switch to git, otherwise you will use out-dated framework and your bot might not work properly. There is a manual for doing that and a blog post explaining about this change in non-technical language.

HTTPS for users with an account[editar]

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[editar]

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) 4 de outubro de 2013 ás 18:35 (UTC)

Introducting Beta Features[editar]

(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) 5 de novembro de 2013 ás 19:56 (UTC)

Call for comments on draft trademark policy[editar]

Request for comment on Commons: Should Wikimedia support MP4 video?[editar]

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) 16 de xaneiro de 2014 ás 06:46 (UTC)

Universal Language Selector will be enabled by default again on this wiki by 21 February 2014[editar]

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.

Changes to the default site typography coming soon[editar]

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.

Media Viewer[editar]


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.

Media Viewer is now live on this wiki[editar]


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) 19 de xuño de 2014 ás 21:54 (UTC)

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decisions[editar]

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.

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.

Grants to improve your project[editar]

Apologies for English. Please help translate this message.

Greetings! The Individual Engagement Grants program is accepting proposals for funding new experiments from September 1st to 30th. Your idea could improve Wikimedia projects with a new tool or gadget, a better process to support community-building on your wiki, research on an important issue, or something else we haven't thought of yet. Whether you need $200 or $30,000 USD, Individual Engagement Grants can cover your own project development time in addition to hiring others to help you.

Subir ficheiros, Asistente de cargas?[editar]

Wikimedia Commons logo

Hello! Sorry for writing in English. It was noted that on this wiki there is little community activity around uploads: less than 50 "Borrar" actions in "Ficheiro" last year.

I guess this wiki doesn't have the interest or energies to maintain complex templates and metadata, especially for EDP files. I propose to

so that no new work is needed on this wiki and all users can have a functioning, easy upload interface in their own language. All registered users can upload on Commons.

All this will be done around 2014-09-30.

  1. If you disagree with the proposal, just remove this wiki from the list.
  2. To make the UploadWizard even better, please tell your experience and ideas on commons:Commons:Upload Wizard feedback.
  3. In all cases, existing files will not be affected, but everyone is welcome to join m:File metadata cleanup drive. The goal is to give better credit to the authors who provided us their works.

Meta RfCs on two new global groups[editar]

Hello all,

There are currently requests for comment open on meta to create two new global groups. The first is a group for members of the OTRS permissions queue, which would grant them autopatrolled rights on all wikis except those who opt-out. That proposal can be found at m:Requests for comment/Creation of a global OTRS-permissions user group. The second is a group for Wikimedia Commons admins and OTRS agents to view deleted file pages through the 'viewdeletedfile' right on all wikis except those who opt-out. The second proposal can be found at m:Requests for comment/Global file deletion review.

We would like to hear what you think on both proposals. Both are in English; if you wanted to translate them into your native language that would also be appreciated.

It is possible for individual projects to opt-out, so that users in those groups do not have any additional rights on those projects. To do this please start a local discussion, and if there is consensus you can request to opt-out of either or both at m:Stewards' noticeboard.

Thanks and regards, Ajraddatz (talk) 26 de outubro de 2014 ás 18:04 (UTC)

Global AbuseFilter[editar]

Hello,

AbuseFilter is a MediaWiki extension used to detect likely abusive behavior patterns, like pattern vandalism and spam. In 2013, Global AbuseFilters were enabled on a limited set of wikis including Meta-Wiki, MediaWiki.org, Wikispecies and (in early 2014) all the "small wikis". Recently, global abuse filters were enabled on "medium sized wikis" as well. These filters are currently managed by stewards on Meta-Wiki and have shown to be very effective in preventing mass spam attacks across Wikimedia projects. However, there is currently no policy on how the global AbuseFilters will be managed although there are proposals. There is an ongoing request for comment on policy governing the use of the global AbuseFilters. In the meantime, specific wikis can opt out of using the global AbuseFilter. These wikis can simply add a request to this list on Meta-Wiki. More details can be found on this page at Meta-Wiki. If you have any questions, feel free to ask on m:Talk:Global AbuseFilter.

Thanks,

VisualEditor coming to this wiki as a Beta Feature[editar]

VE as BetaFeature.png

Hello. Please excuse the English. I would be grateful if you translated this message!

VisualEditor, a rich-text editor for MediaWiki, will soon be available on this wiki as a Beta Feature. The estimated date of activation is Wednesday, 26 November.

To access it, you will need to visit the Características en probas page after the deployment and tick the box next to "Edición visual". (If you have enabled the "Activar automaticamente todas as novas características en probas" option, VisualEditor will be automatically available for you.) There will also be a "⧼Visualeditor-preference-language-label⧽" that you can enable if you need it.

Then, you just have to click on "Editar" to start VisualEditor, or on "Editar a fonte" to edit using wikitext markup. You can even begin to edit pages with VisualEditor and then switch to the wikitext editor simply by clicking on its tab at any point, and you can keep your changes when doing so.

A guide was just published at mediawiki.org so that you can learn how to support your community with this transition: please read and translate it if you can! You will find all the information about the next steps there. Please report any suggestions or issues at the main feedback page. You will also receive the next issues of the multilingual monthly newsletter here on this page: if you want it delivered elsewhere, for example at your personal talk page, please add the relevant page here.

Thanks for your attention and happy editing, Elitre (WMF) 21 de novembro de 2014 ás 18:12 (UTC)

Wikidata is coming[editar]

(Sorry for writing in English. It'd be great if someone could translate this where necessary.)

Hi everyone :)

I am Wikidata's product manager. I wanted to reach out to you about Wikidata support for Wikibooks. Wikidata is storing structured data for Wikimedia projects (and others). These are for example things like the date of birth of a famous author or the height of a mountain. We are giving access to this data to all Wikimedia projects step by step. It is now Wikibooks' turn. As a first step you will be able to maintain your interwiki links on Wikidata. This means you no longer have to store them in the article text of each language. Instead they are stored just once on Wikidata together with all the other projects. (You will still be able to store them in the article text if you really want to but then they overwrite the links coming from Wikidata. Sometimes that is useful.) This first step should happen on February 24th. In the next step you will get access to all the other data on Wikidata. I do not have a date for that yet.

I am looking forward to having you join the Wikidata family! If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to me. There is a special page for you on Wikidata that will hopefully help you and is a good place to ask questions: d:Wikidata:Wikibooks.

Wikidata support for interwiki links is here[editar]

Hey everyone :)

(Sorry for writing in English. It'd be great if someone could translate where appropriate.)

As previously announced we have enabled interwiki links via Wikidata for Wikibooks last night. This means from now on you no longer have to maintain the links in the wikitext but can maintain them together with the links for Wikipedia, Commons, Wikivoyage, Wikisource, Wikinews and Wikiquote on Wikidata. You will still be able to keep them locally though if you want to. Local interwiki links will overwrite the ones from Wikidata. If you don't want any interwiki links from Wikidata on a particular page you can use the magic word {{noexternallanglinks}}.

You do not yet have access to the other data on Wikidata like the date of birth of an author. That will come in a future deployment. I will let you know when I have a date for it.

If you have any questions d:Wikidata:Wikibooks is a good first step. That is also a good place for any issues or bugs you encounter.

I'm very happy to welcome you all to Wikidata! I hope it will become a great help for Wikibooks.

Cheers Lydia -- Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) 25 de febreiro de 2015 ás 07:58 (UTC)

[Global proposal] m.Wikibooks.org: (todos) Editar páxinas[editar]

MediaWiki mobile

Hi, this message is to let you know that, on domains like gl.m.wikipedia.org, unregistered users cannot edit. At the Wikimedia Forum, where global configuration changes are normally discussed, a few dozens users propose to restore normal editing permissions on all mobile sites. Please read and comment!

Inspire Campaign: Improving diversity, improving content[editar]

This March, we’re organizing an Inspire Campaign to encourage and support new ideas for improving gender diversity on Wikimedia projects. Less than 20% of Wikimedia contributors are women, and many important topics are still missing in our content. We invite all Wikimedians to participate. If you have an idea that could help address this problem, please get involved today! The campaign runs until March 31.

All proposals are welcome - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive, positive feedback on ideas is appreciated, and collaboration is encouraged - your skills and experience may help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign and help this project better represent the world’s knowledge!
