Pronunciation Recording[redigeeri]

Visual workflow draft for pronunciation recording gadget; If you have trouble watching this video here, watch it on vimeo. A more extensive/explanative version is available.

Dear Wiktionary community!

About me
My name is Rainer Rillke, and I have been volunteering at Wikimedia Commons for 3 years now, gathering experience around media files. I've been always interested in how things work and how one could improve them.
The idea
One idea that appeared last Summer was allowing the recording of small chunks of speech, uploading that to Wikimedia Commons in the background and including this into a Wiktionary entry without having the hassle doing everything by hand or installing additional software. That idea led to the foundation of MediaWiki extension PronunciationRecording during the Google Summer of Code. However, this was not completed; instead development is stale for over 5 months now.
My proposal
To make this going to work, so Wiktionary has an immediate benefit of this feature, I would like to provide the work done so far as a gadget and add some more work in regard to usability. You can see my plan at m:Grants:IEG/Finish Pronunciation Recording. And more importantly, you can give me a hand, if you are interested by writing your comments.

Thanks and kind regards --Rillke (arutelu) 7. aprill 2014, kell 20:25 (EEST)

Using only UploadWizard for uploads[redigeeri]

Wikimedia Commons logo

Hello! It was noted that on this wiki you have less than 10 local files. Presumably, you therefore don't have interest nor energies to have hundreds templates with the now required HTML, even less a local EDP. However, this means that users here will experience a mostly broken and/or illegal uploading. I propose to

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.

I'll get this done in one week from now.

  1. If you disagree with the proposal, just remove your wiki from the list.
  2. To make the UploadWizard even better, please tell your experience and ideas on commons:Commons:Upload Wizard feedback.

Media Viewer[redigeeri]


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) 24. mai 2014, kell 00:29 (EEST)

Media Viewer is now live on this wiki[redigeeri]


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) 20. juuni 2014, kell 00:54 (EEST)

Järjestus kategooriates[redigeeri]

On kolm võimalust, kuidas viki kõigis kategooriates saaks sõnu vaikimisi järjestada:

  1. nagu praegu; diakriitikutega tähed kategoorias pärast muid ladina tähti ja iga märk eraldi alaosas
  2. diakriitikuga tähed järjestatakse nii nagu oleksid ilma diakriitikuta (ka näiteks diakriitikuga kreeka tähed), mis näiteks prantsuse keele kategoorias on mõistlik, eesti keele omas mitte; mõne mitteladina kirja kasutava keele sõnad peaks olema õigemini järjestatud, näiteks tai sõnad; vt keelte indekseid poola vikis, kus on nii
  3. eesti tähestiku tähed on eesti keele kategooriates õigesti järjestatud, mujal mitte; muud diakriitikuga tähed järjestatakse nagu nad oleksid ilma diakriitikuta

Kas tahate praegust sätet muuta? Ükski praegu võimalikest variantidest pole muidugi kõigi keelte jaoks ideaalne. Pikne 22. juuli 2014, kell 17:29 (EEST)

Kas siis praegu eesti sõnad ei ole automaatselt õigesti järjestatud? Siis võiks seda küll muuta. Andres (arutelu) 24. juuli 2014, kell 21:47 (EEST)
Praegu on nii. Kui teha kolmandat moodi, siis oleks samas näiteks ka teiste keelte z-tähega algavad sõnad vastavates kategooriates s-i ja t vahel. Või võib eesti keele järjestust siiski siin eelistada? Pikne 25. juuli 2014, kell 00:31 (EEST)
Ma arvan, et parem on siiski, kui eesti keeles õigesti on. Teiste keelte puhul saab järjestust osalt ka käsitsi sättida. Andres (arutelu) 27. juuli 2014, kell 21:55 (EEST)
Hästi, kui vastu polda, palun ka siin nii teha. Pikne 6. august 2014, kell 12:58 (EEST)

IMPORTANT: Admin activity review[redigeeri]

Hello. A new policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc) was recently adopted by global community consensus (your community received a notice about the discussion). According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing administrators' activity on smaller wikis. 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 new admin activity review here.

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

  1. Rauno (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, Rschen7754 17. august 2014, kell 07:00 (EEST)

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decisions[redigeeri]

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[redigeeri]

’’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. august 2014, kell 01:15 (EEST)

Grants to improve your project[redigeeri]

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.

Meta RfCs on two new global groups[redigeeri]

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. oktoober 2014, kell 20:04 (EET)

Global AbuseFilter[redigeeri]

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,

PiRSquared17, Glaisher

Tõlgete vormistamine[redigeeri]

Teen ettepaneku, et muudame tõlkenimistute vormistamist, sest praegune lahendus (pikk rida tõlkeid pärast "sünonüümide" kategooriat) on inetu ja ebamugav kasutada. Pigem paneks tõlked artikli alaossa nii, nagu see valdavalt muukeelsetest vikisõnastikes on. Inglisekeelse vikisõnastiku põhjal tegin sellise templaadi: Tõlke templaat ning minu kasutajalehel on hetkel uue vormistuse näidis sissekandest "aabits" Kasutaja:NKuusik. Algupärane inglisekeelne templaat näeb välja midagi sellist: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Template:trans-top, millest põhimõtteliselt võtsin "trans-top", "trans-mid" ja "trans-bottom" käskluse. Ma ei tea, kuidas see peaks käima, aga põhimõtteliselt peaks sama asja ka eestikeelsete käsklustega saada väljendada. Kas see mängib mingit rolli, kui meil on inglisekeelse viki vormistuselemendid? Kui jah, kas keegi oskab teha nö "eestikeelse versiooni" templaadist?

Kui kellelgi selle vastu midagi pole, viin peagi "aabitsa" sissekandesse muudatused sisse ning hakkan tasapisi ka teisi sissekandeid ümbervormistama. NKuusik (arutelu) 5. jaanuar 2015, kell 19:37 (EET)

Mina eelistan praegust vormistust. Miks peaksid tõlked olema peidetud? Kui tõlked on tähenduse all, siis on neid lihtsam tähendusega seostada.
Võib-olla saab midagi ette võtta, et ei oleks inetu. Kuidas siis see mugavam on, kui tõlkeid tuleb teisest kohast otsida, ja kuidas see vähem inetu on? Andres (arutelu) 6. jaanuar 2015, kell 17:52 (EET)
Et tegu on elementidega, mida lugeja ei näe, siis nad võivad ka ingliskeelseteks jääda. Võib muidugi tulla keegi, kes hakkab nõudma, et mallide pealkirjad oleks eestikeelsed.
Tuleb teha lehekülg süntaksiga Mall:Pealkiri ning sinna kopeerida inglise keeles olev. Kui seal on omakorda mõnda malli kasutatud, siis need mallid peavad ka meil olema. Teha ka ümbersuunamine ingliskeelse pealkirja alt, et oleks lihtsam malle üle võtta. Andres (arutelu) 6. jaanuar 2015, kell 18:22 (EET)
Praeguse vormistuse puhul on tõlkeid muust tekstist raske eristada ning kui tõlkeid on palju (nagu "aabitsa" puhul), võtab see enda alla suure osa artikli mahust. Üritasin kuidagi tabelit ka niimoodi vormistada, et suletav tõlke tabel asuks kohe pärast tähendust, aga see lööb üleüldise numeratsiooni sassi. Julgen öelda, et 90% vikisõnastike puhul on tõlked eraldi peatükina sissekande lõpus ning varjatud lahtikäiva tabeli abil (inglise keeles, prantsuse keeles, vene keeles, saksa keeles, uuskreeka keeles. Kasutan muukeelseid vikisõnastikke päris palju ning satun eestikeelses vikisõnastikus alati segadusse. Kui mõiste definitsioon tõlke tabelis üle korrata, oleks see lugejale piisavalt selge? NKuusik (arutelu) 6. jaanuar 2015, kell 22:46 (EET)
Ma ei saa rääkida lugejatest üldiselt, vaid ainult enda kui lugeja eelistustest ja oma arvamustest. Selleks et teada saada, mida enamik lugejaid eelistab, tuleks küsitleda rohkemaid inimesi.
Selle kohta, miks mujal on teisiti, on mul niisugune oletus, et inglise keeleruumis ollakse harjunud kasutama peamiselt seletavaid sõnaraamatuid. Tõlkesõnaraamatuid kasutavad vähesed friigid, sest võõrkeeli pole tarvis osata. Sellepärast on tõlked lõppu pandud ja ära peidetud. (Ja teised on lihtsalt inglise vikisõnastiku eeskuju üle võtnud). Eestlaste jaoks on tõlked palju tähtsamad ja võib-olla peamine osa sõnastikust. Kui nüüd tõlge on paigutatud lõppu ja veel ära ka peita, siis võib kergesti jääda mulje, et tõlkeid polegi.
Mis puutub sellesse, et tõlkeid on muust tekstist raske eristada, siis 1) miks nad peaksid olema eristatud, kui nad on samasugune sõnaraamatu osa nagu muu materjal? 2) kui tõlked on peidetud, on neid ka tülikas üles leida, eriti kui selliseid peidetud kaste on mitu (eriti tülikas on see vene vikis, kus on palju müra).
Möönan, et kui tõlkeid on palju, siis see teeb kasutamise ebamugavaks. Inglise vikisõnastikus on funktsioon, mis võimaldab lugejal valida keeled, millesse ta tõlget soovib. Et seda rakendada, on tarvis teha rohkem ja keerulisemaid muudatusi. Meie praegusesse süsteemi ei ole isegi HTMLi eksperdil õnnestunud paigutada isegi mitte kahetulbalist tabelut.
Pakun välja kaks kompromissi. Esiteks, tõlked võiks paigutada kohe põhiosa järele. Siis on nad kergemini leitavad ja ka tähenduste võrdlemine oleks lihtsam. Teiseks, võiks koostada talutava pikkusega (mis see Sinu arvates oleks?) nimekirja oletatavalt otsitavamatest keeltest ning vormistada tõlked nendesse keeltesse nii nagu praegu ja lisada link "teised keeled", mis viib täielikumasse tõlgete tabelisse. Nii saaks enamik lugejaid asja ära ajada ka ilma tõlgete kasti minemata. Andres (arutelu) 7. jaanuar 2015, kell 12:39 (EET)
Sellist ettepanekut on varemgi korduvalt tehtud, näiteks ülalpool. 88.196.241.249 7. jaanuar 2015, kell 15:05 (EET)
Jah, aga millegipärast jäid arutelud soiku. Teksti sees peitmiseks pole tehnilist lahendust leitud.
Kõige parem kompromisslahendus oleks minu meelest see, kui tõlgete juurde jäetaks lühike tõlgete nimekiri ning link täieliku tõlgete nimekirja juurde. Siis ei oleks järgmine tähendus liiga kaugel, aga enamik lugejaid saaks oma tõlked kohe kätte. Siis ei oleks vahet, kus tõlgete kast asub. Andres (arutelu) 7. jaanuar 2015, kell 15:19 (EET)
Andres, vastuseks Sinu küsimusele number 1 ütleksin, et küsimus pole mitte tõlgete eristamises ülejäänud elementidest, kuivõrd informatsiooni paremas liigendamises ning siinkohal saaks kindlasti muidki parandusi teha. Näiteks eristatakse inglisekeelses Wikipedias eristatakse sünonüümid, tuletised, tõlked jne... eri tasme peatükkidena, meil on see miskipärast osaliselt eristatud lnumberloendina. Põhimõtteliselt pakungi ette, et tõlked võiksid olla mitte loendiliikmena, vaid eraldi peatükina. Minu poolest võivad tõlked kohe tähenduste järel asuda, kui Sulle see parem tundub. Samas arvan, et ei ole mõistlik tõlkeloendit jagada kaheks otsitavamateks ja vähem otsitavamateks keelteks, mis tundub mulle pigem keerulise lahendusena (mille alusel? kuidas esitame "otsitavamaid" ja kuidas "vähem otsitavaid" keeli?) ning ka seda, et tõlked võiks siiski "ära peita" avatavasse tabelisse, sest 1) tegemist on üldlevinud vormistusega, mida tunnevad ära ka muukeelsete vikisõnastikega harjunud kasutajad, 2) kogu artikkel muutub kompaktsemaks - "trans-top"; "trans-mid" ja "trans-bottom" käsklustega on hõlpsasti võimalik teha ka kahetulbalisi tabeleid. Vaatasin, et eelnevas arutelus on minu ettepanekut põhimõtteliselt juba esitletud nõnda, et tõlge asub kohe definitsioonide järel. Miks ei võiks olla siis selline vormistus: daam/peida tõlked? NKuusik (arutelu) 8. jaanuar 2015, kell 00:30 (EET)
Praegu on loogika niisugune, et need asjad, mis on seotud konkreetse tähendusega, on põhipeatükis, teised asjad on eraldi peatükkides.
See, et kõik tõlked oleksid esimese rubriigina pärast põhipeatükki, oleks minu meelest paremuselt teine lahendus. Selle eelis oleks, et tähendused ja tõlked ei oleks üksteises nii kaugel, et neid on raske seostada.
Ma sain enne asjast nii aru, et peamine põhjus, miks tõlked tahetakse eraldi panna, on see, et nad võtavad liiga palju ruumi ja lõhuvad seetõttu esituse terviklikkust. Sellise lahenduse halb külg on aga minu meelest see, et nõnda kisutakse tõlked üldisest esitusest lahku. Sellepärast ma esitasingi niisuguse kompromissettepaneku. Selle hea külg on veel see, et niisugusel juhul võivad tõlked olla ka päris lõpus, kus neid ei pea tingimata peitma, sest nende taha pole tarvis vaadata. Pealegi on olemas sisukord, mille järgi saab soovitu leida. Jah, nüüd endale vastu rääkides osutan sellele, et tõlgete olemasolust saab teada ka sisukorrast.
Tõlkesõnaraamatutes esitatakse tõlkevasted võimalikult kohe. Ma oletan, et lugejad on just sellega harjunud. Oletan, et teiste vikisõnastikega harjunud olek on pigem erandlik. Ja kui sellega harjunud ei olda, siis minu arvates võivad peidetud asjad kergesti märkamatuks jääda. Peitmise halb külg on ka see, et eri tähenduste tõlkeid pole võimalik korraga näha. Andres (arutelu) 8. jaanuar 2015, kell 12:30 (EET)
Aga jällegi, siin on ainult minu arvamused ja eelistused. Kui selgub, et enamikule kasutajatele sobib paremini teistsugune vormistus, siis mina selle vastu ei ole. Andres (arutelu) 8. jaanuar 2015, kell 12:32 (EET)
Sinu näidatud eeskuju puhul ei meeldi mulle mallide rohkus. Kui artikli kirjutaja peab meeles pidama hulga malle, siis on raske uusi kirjutajaid leida. Vormistus peaks olema selline, mida saaks ka ilma paljude mallideta hõlpsasti tekitada. Aja jooksul muidugi mallid kuluvad pähe. Andres (arutelu) 8. jaanuar 2015, kell 12:35 (EET)
Või siis oleks nii, nagu inglise vikis, kus tõlkevastete lisaja ei pea ise süntaksi peale mõtlema. See küll jälle oleks tülikas, kui tõlkevasteid massiliselt lisada.
Nähtavasti tuleks siis rohkem kasutada valmis blankette, nagu mõned juba on poolikul kujul olemas. Andres (arutelu) 8. jaanuar 2015, kell 12:42 (EET)
Jah, sellisel juhul oleks uue artikli luues hea lisada kohe vastav mall, mis võiks olla näiteks seesama tõlke templaat, mida mainisin teemat algatades. Samas ei ole veel lõplikult selge, kuidas suhtuvad muudatusettepanekusse teised Vikisõnastiku kasutajad. Praegu on valdavalt sõna võtnud vaid meie kaks, niiet ootaks-küsiks rohkem teiste kasutajate arvamusi. NKuusik (arutelu) 8. jaanuar 2015, kell 22:31 (EET)
Mall tuleb ümber töötada eeltäidetavaks vormistuseks, nagu see artikli loomisel ette tuleb. Mina ei oska seda ise teha, aga küllap keegi on, kes oskab.
Meil on siin nii vähe aktiivseid tegijaid, et pole eriti loota, et keegi veel sõna võtab. Arvan, et ekstra tasub arvamust küsida Metsavennalt ja AivoK-lt. Ja isegi nendest arvamustest minu meelest ei piisa, kui tahame teada saada, mida tavalugeja võiks eelistada. Andres (arutelu) 9. jaanuar 2015, kell 08:38 (EET)
Mulle meeldiks kui tõlked oleksid eespool, aga mitte tingimata iga tähenduse järel. Samas ei tohiks nad peidetud olla (nagu inglise ja vene versioonis) vaid avatud (nagu saksa versioonis). Kes tahab, saab need ise peita, aga võib juhtuda, et mõni kasutaja ei pane peidetud tõlkeid tähele. See nõuaks ka asjatult lisaklikke, eriti kui iga tähenduse taga on tõlked ja tekitab pettumust (kui vajalik tõlge puudub - nagu praegu enamasti).--Metsavend (arutelu) 9. jaanuar 2015, kell 12:24 (EET)

Stewards confirmation rules[redigeeri]

Hello, I made a proposal on Meta to change the rules for the steward confirmations. Currently consensus to remove is required for a steward to lose his status, however I think it's fairer to the community if every steward needed the consensus to keep.

Proposal to create PNG thumbnails of static GIF images[redigeeri]

The thumbnail of this gif is of really bad quality.
How a PNG thumb of this GIF would look like

There is a proposal at the Commons Village Pump requesting feedback about the thumbnails of static GIF images: It states that static GIF files should have their thumbnails created in PNG. The advantages of PNG over GIF would be visible especially with GIF images using an alpha channel. (compare the thumbnails on the side)

This change would affect all wikis, so if you support/oppose or want to give general feedback/concerns, please post them to the proposal page. Thank you. --McZusatz (talk) & MediaWiki message delivery (arutelu) 24. juuli 2015, kell 08:07 (EEST)

What does a Healthy Community look like to you?[redigeeri]

Community Health Cover art News portal.png

Hi,
The Community Engagement department at the Wikimedia Foundation has launched a new learning campaign. The WMF wants to record community impressions about what makes a healthy online community. Share your views and/or create a drawing and take a chance to win a Wikimania 2016 scholarship! Join the WMF as we begin a conversation about Community Health. Contribute a drawing or answer the questions on the campaign's page.

Why get involved?[redigeeri]

The world is changing. The way we relate to knowledge is transforming. As the next billion people come online, the Wikimedia movement is working to bring more users on the wiki projects. The way we interact and collaborate online are key to building sustainable projects. How accessible are Wikimedia projects to newcomers today? Are we helping each other learn?
Share your views on this matter that affects us all!
We invite everyone to take part in this learning campaign. Wikimedia Foundation will distribute one Wikimania Scholarship 2016 among those participants who are eligible.

Zaza ja dõmli keel[redigeeri]

Zaza on makrokeel, mis koosneb põhja- ja lõuna-zaza keelest. Lõuna-zaza keelt nimetatakse ka dõmli keeleks, sellele on kategooria olemas. Kas zaza keele nimetus jätta siis põhja-zaza keelele? Samas räägib lõuna-zaza keelt 10 korda rohkem inimesi. --Metsavend (arutelu) 2. september 2015, kell 22:32 (EEST)

Teine on kõrmandžki keel. Andres (arutelu) 2. september 2015, kell 23:16 (EEST)
Jah, aga nt inglise vikisõnastikus on ainult zaza keel ja ma ei tea kumba varianti seal on mõeldud. Praegu on ka siin zazakeelne sõna: maki. Tuleb otsustada, kas jätta ainult zaza või ainult dõmli ja kõrmandžki. --Metsavend (arutelu) 2. september 2015, kell 23:20 (EEST)
Zazakeelne Vikipeedia kasutab dõmli koodi: https://diq.wikipedia.org --Metsavend (arutelu) 2. september 2015, kell 23:27 (EEST)
Pakun, et tuleb jätta eraldi dõmli ja kõrmandžki, ning oletan, et zaza all mõeldakse ka nii zaza kui ka inglise vikis dõmlit. Seda peaks saama sõnastike jms järgi kontrollida, võib ka küsida teiste vikide tegijatelt üle küsida. Kui see nii on, siis võib mugavuse mõttes teha zaza koodi ümbersuunamiseks dõmlile. Andres (arutelu) 3. september 2015, kell 15:28 (EEST)
Seda ma ütlesin ainult selle põhjal, mis Sa kirjutasid. Ma hakkasin vaatama, aga ei saa suurt aru. Kui neil on ainult üks kirjakeel, siis võiks küll ka olla lihtsalt zaza. Ethnologue'i järgi ma ei saanud sellest aru. Andres (arutelu) 3. september 2015, kell 15:46 (EEST)
Ma ei leidnud ka kuskilt infot mitme kirjakeele kohta. Ka praegune zaza kirjakeel on alles kujunemisjärgus ja pole kindlalt normitud. Ethnologue peab zaza põhja- ja lõunamurret ilmselt piisavalt erinevaks, et neid eri keelteks pidada. Samas eristatakse zaza keele sees hoopis kolme peamist murderühma: põhja-, kesk- ja lõunarühma. Vikisõnastikus ei ole ilmselt võimalik neid eri keeltena käsitleda. --Metsavend (arutelu) 3. september 2015, kell 17:02 (EEST)

Hello! Wikimania 2016 scholarships will soon be open; by the end of the week we'll form the committee and we need your help, see Scholarship committee for details.

If you want to carefully review nearly a thousand applications in January, you might be a perfect committee member. Otherwise, you can volunteer as "ambassador": you will observe all the committee activities, ensure that people from your language or project manage to apply for a scholarship, translate scholarship applications written in your language to English and so on. Ambassadors are allowed to ask for a scholarship, unlike committee members.

2016 WMF Strategy consultation[redigeeri]

Palun aita emakeelde tõlkida

Hello, all.

The Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) has launched a consultation to help create and prioritize WMF strategy beginning July 2016 and for the 12 to 24 months thereafter. This consultation will be open, on Meta, from 18 January to 26 February, after which the Foundation will also use these ideas to help inform its Annual Plan. (More on our timeline can be found on that Meta page.)

Your input is welcome (and greatly desired) at the Meta discussion, 2016 Strategy/Community consultation.

Apologies for English, where this is posted on a non-English project. We thought it was more important to get the consultation translated as much as possible, and good headway has been made there in some languages. There is still much to do, however! We created m:2016 Strategy/Translations to try to help coordinate what needs translation and what progress is being made. :)

If you have questions, please reach out to me on my talk page or on the strategy consultation's talk page or by email to mdennis@wikimedia.org.

I hope you'll join us! Maggie Dennis via MediaWiki message delivery (arutelu) 18. jaanuar 2016, kell 21:06 (EET)

Server switch 2016[redigeeri]

The Wikimedia Foundation will be testing its newest data center in Dallas. This will make sure Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia wikis can stay online even after a disaster. To make sure everything is working, the Wikimedia Technology department needs to conduct a planned test. This test will show whether they can reliably switch from one data center to the other. It requires many teams to prepare for the test and to be available to fix any unexpected problems.

They will switch all traffic to the new data center on Tuesday, 19 April.
On Thursday, 21 April, they will switch back to the primary data center.

Unfortunately, because of some limitations in MediaWiki, all editing must stop during those two switches. We apologize for this disruption, and we are working to minimize it in the future.

You will be able to read, but not edit, all wikis for a short period of time.

  • You will not be able to edit for approximately 15 to 30 minutes on Tuesday, 19 April and Thursday, 21 April, starting at 14:00 UTC (15:00 BST, 16:00 CEST, 10:00 EDT, 07:00 PDT).

If you try to edit or save during these times, you will see an error message. We hope that no edits will be lost during these minutes, but we can't guarantee it. If you see the error message, then please wait until everything is back to normal. Then you should be able to save your edit. But, we recommend that you make a copy of your changes first, just in case.

Other effects:

  • Background jobs will be slower and some may be dropped.

Red links might not be updated as quickly as normal. If you create an article that is already linked somewhere else, the link will stay red longer than usual. Some long-running scripts will have to be stopped.

  • There will be a code freeze for the week of 18 April.

No non-essential code deployments will take place.

This test was originally planned to take place on March 22. April 19th and 21st are the new dates. You can read the schedule at wikitech.wikimedia.org. They will post any changes on that schedule. There will be more notifications about this. Please share this information with your community. /User:Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18. aprill 2016, kell 00:08 (EEST)

JavaScript[redigeeri]

Hi. I can see that this project has old JavaScript that needs to be updated. I would happily make the required updates myself, but I would have to – at least temporarily – become an admin here to do that (because the relevant pages are in the MediaWiki namespace). I have already made these updates on a number of other projects, so it would be very easy for me to do this. If no one does anything, some JavaScript-related tools will break later this year. If you want me to make these updates, you can grant me admin rights and I will make the updates as soon as I can. Nirmos (arutelu) 3. juuni 2016, kell 01:26 (EEST)

Compact Links coming soon to this wiki[redigeeri]

Screenshot of Compact Language Links interlanguage list

Hello, I wanted to give a heads up about an upcoming feature for this wiki which you may seen already in the Tech News. Compact Language Links has been available as a beta-feature on all Wikimedia wikis since 2014. With compact language links enabled, users are shown a much shorter list of languages on the interlanguage link section of an article (see image). This will be enabled as a feature in the soon for all users, which can be turned on or off using a preference setting. We look forward to your feedback and please do let us know if you have any questions. Details about Compact Language Links can be read in the project documentation.

Due to the large scale enablement of this feature, we have had to use MassMessage for this announcement and as a result it is only written in English. We will really appreciate if this message can be translated for other users of this wiki. The main announcement can also be translated on this page. Thank you.

Compact Language Links enabled in this wiki today[redigeeri]

Palun aita emakeelde tõlkida

Screenshot of Compact Language Links interlanguage list

Compact Language Links has been available as a beta-feature on all Wikimedia wikis since 2014. With compact language links enabled, users are shown a much shorter list of languages on the interlanguage link section of an article (see image). Based on several factors, this shorter list of languages is expected to be more relevant for them and valuable for finding similar content in a language known to them. More information about compact language links can be found in the documentation.

From today onwards, compact language links has been enabled as the default listing of interlanguage links on this wiki. However, using the button at the bottom, you will be able to see a longer list of all the languages the article has been written in. The setting for this compact list can be changed by using the checkbox under User Preferences -> Appearance -> Languages

The compact language links feature has been tested extensively by the Wikimedia Language team, which developed it. However, in case there are any problems or other feedback please let us know on the project talk page. It is to be noted that on some wikis the presence of an existing older gadget that was used for a similar purpose may cause an interference for compact language list. We would like to bring this to the attention of the admins of this wiki. Full details are on this phabricator ticket (in English).

Due to the large scale enablement of this feature, we have had to use MassMessage for this announcement and as a result it is only written in English.

Wikidata for Wiktionary: let’s get ready for lexicographical data![redigeeri]

Hello all,

Sorry for writing this message in English, please feel free to translate it in your own language below.

The Wikidata development team will start working on integrating lexicographical data in the knowledge base soon and we want to make sure we do this together with you.

Wikidata is a constantly evolving project and after four years of existence, we start with implementing support for Wiktionary editors and content, by allowing you to store and improve lexicographical data, in addition to the concepts already maintained by thousands of editors on Wikidata.

We have been working on this idea for almost three years and improving it with a lot of inputs from community members to understand Wiktionary processes.

Starting this project, we hope that the editors will be able to collaborate across Wiktionaries more easily. We expect to increase the number of editors and visibility of languages, and we want to provide the groundwork for new tools for editors.

Our development plan contains several phases in order to build the structure to include lexicographical data:

  • creating automatic interwiki links on Wiktionary,
  • creating new entity types for lexemes, senses, and forms on Wikidata,
  • providing data access to Wikidata from Wiktionary
  • improving the display of lexicographical information on Wikidata.

During the next months, we will do our best to provide you the technical structure to store lexicographical data on Wikidata and use it on Wiktionary. Don’t hesitate to discuss this within your local community, and give us feedback about your needs and the particularities of your languages.

Information about supporting lexicographical entities on Wikidata is available on this page. You can find an overview of the project, the detail of the development plan, answers to frequently asked questions, and a list of people ready to help us. If you want to have general discussions and questions about the project, please use the general talk page, as we won’t be able to follow all the talk pages on Wiktionaries. If you don’t feel comfortable with English, you can write in your own language and hopefully someone will volunteer to translate.

Bests regards, Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talk)

We are having a problem with attackers taking over wiki accounts with privileged user rights (for example, admins, bureaucrats, oversighters, checkusers). It appears that this may be because of weak or reused passwords.

Community members are working along with members of multiple teams at the Wikimedia Foundation to address this issue.

In the meantime, we ask that everyone takes a look at the passwords they have chosen for their wiki accounts. If you know that you've chosen a weak password, or if you've chosen a password that you are using somewhere else, please change those passwords.

Call for image filter referendum[redigeeri]

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.

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

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[redigeeri]

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.

Nominations are being accepted for 2015 Wikimedia Foundation elections[redigeeri]

This is a message from the 2015 Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee. Translations are available.

Wikimedia Foundation logo - vertical (2012-2016).svg

Greetings,

I am pleased to announce that nominations are now being accepted for the 2015 Wikimedia Foundation Elections. This year the Board and the FDC Staff are looking for a diverse set of candidates from regions and projects that are traditionally under-represented on the board and in the movement as well as candidates with experience in technology, product or finance. To this end they have published letters describing what they think is needed and, recognizing that those who know the community the best are the community themselves, the election committee is accepting nominations for community members you think should run and will reach out to those nominated to provide them with information about the job and the election process.

This year, elections are being held for the following roles:

Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is the decision-making body that is ultimately responsible for the long term sustainability of the Foundation, so we value wide input into its selection. There are three positions being filled. More information about this role can be found at the board elections page.

Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC)
The Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) makes recommendations about how to allocate Wikimedia movement funds to eligible entities. There are five positions being filled. More information about this role can be found at the FDC elections page.

Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) Ombud
The FDC Ombud receives complaints and feedback about the FDC process, investigates complaints at the request of the Board of Trustees, and summarizes the investigations and feedback for the Board of Trustees on an annual basis. One position is being filled. More information about this role can be found at the FDC Ombudsperson elections page.

The candidacy submission phase lasts from 00:00 UTC April 20 to 23:59 UTC May 5 for the Board and from 00:00 UTCApril 20 to 23:59 UTC April 30 for the FDC and FDC Ombudsperson. This year, we are accepting both self-nominations and nominations of others. More information on this election and the nomination process can be found on the 2015 Wikimedia elections page on Meta-Wiki.

Please feel free to post a note about the election on your project's village pump. Any questions related to the election can be posted on the talk page on Meta, or sent to the election committee's mailing list, board-elections -at- wikimedia.org

On behalf of the Elections Committee,

Pywikibot compat will no longer be supported - Please migrate to pywikibot core[redigeeri]

Sorry for English, I hope someone translates this.
Pywikibot (then "Pywikipediabot") was started back in 2002. In 2007 a new branch (formerly known as "rewrite", now called "core") was started from scratch using the MediaWiki API. The developers of Pywikibot have decided to stop supporting the compat version of Pywikibot due to bad performance and architectural errors that make it hard to update, compared to core. If you are using pywikibot compat it is likely your code will break due to upcoming MediaWiki API changes (e.g. T101524). It is highly recommended you migrate to the core framework. There is a migration guide, and please contact us if you have any problem.

There is an upcoming MediaWiki API breaking change that compat will not be updated for. If your bot's name is in this list, your bot will most likely break.

Thank you,
The Pywikibot development team, 19:30, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

Your input requested on the proposed #FreeBassel banner campaign[redigeeri]

This is a message regarding the proposed 2015 Free Bassel banner. Translations are available.

Hi everyone,

This is to inform all Wikimedia contributors that a straw poll seeking your involvement has just been started on Meta-Wiki.

As some of your might be aware, a small group of Wikimedia volunteers have proposed a banner campaign informing Wikipedia readers about the urgent situation of our fellow Wikipedian, open source software developer and Creative Commons activist, Bassel Khartabil. An exemplary banner and an explanatory page have now been prepared, and translated into about half a dozen languages by volunteer translators.

We are seeking your involvement to decide if the global Wikimedia community approves starting a banner campaign asking Wikipedia readers to call on the Syrian government to release Bassel from prison. We understand that a campaign like this would be unprecedented in Wikipedia's history, which is why we're seeking the widest possible consensus among the community.

Given Bassel's urgent situation and the resulting tight schedule, we ask everyone to get involved with the poll and the discussion to the widest possible extent, and to promote it among your communities as soon as possible.

(Apologies for writing in English; please kindly translate this message into your own language.)

Thank you for your participation!

Get involved in Wikipedia 15![redigeeri]

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

International-Space-Station wordmark blue.svg

As many of you know, January 15 is Wikipedia’s 15th Birthday!

People around the world are getting involved in the celebration and have started adding their events on Meta Page. While we are celebrating Wikipedia's birthday, we hope that all projects and affiliates will be able to utilize this celebration to raise awareness of our community's efforts.

Haven’t started planning? Don’t worry, there’s lots of ways to get involved. Here are some ideas:

Everything is linked on the Wikipedia 15 Meta page. You’ll find a set of ten data visualization works that you can show at your events, and a list of all the Wikipedia 15 logos that community members have already designed.

If you have any questions, please contact Zachary McCune or Joe Sutherland.

Thanks and Happy nearly Wikipedia 15!
-The Wikimedia Foundation Communications team
