Tidigare introduktion:

Välkommen till Pressrummet; här informerar vi och diskuterar frågor gällande Wikinews. Det kan gälla hur Wikinews fungerar, dess riktlinjer eller policy. Arkivet finns här. Tveka inte att ställa en fråga om det är något du undrar.

Om en diskussion passar in på en specifik Wikinews-sida så starta den helst på den sidan, men lämna gärna en "blänkare" här i pressrummet. Om man efter ett tag upptäcker att en diskussion egentligen skulle ha passat bättre på på en annan sida, flytta gärna diskussionen dit när den har avtagit här men lämna en hänvisning kvar här.

Welcome to Pressrummet, the Swedish Wikinews Water cooler. Feel free to write in English here. If you want to ask for permission to run a bot on Swedish Wikinews, please go to Wikinews:Robotansökan. Requests relating to unified logins should be made at Wikinews:Byte av användarnamn.

Diskussionen[redigera]

Mall:Aktuell artikel mall 2[redigera]

Hej, jag har nu skapat en mall med ovanstående namn. Den är tänkt som ett alternativ till den nuvarande på huvudsidan. Skillnaden består i att man istället för en läs mer-länk har två länkar med artiklarnas namn. Detta gör att man kan länka till två artiklar i samma ämna som SVT med flera gör. --Rasmus 28 7 oktober 2011 kl. 20.34 (CEST)

Har gjort en ändring så att dem tredje länken blir datumangivle om abar två länkar behövs. --Rasmus 28 15 januari 2012 kl. 22.57 (CET)

Mall:Artikellänk enkel[redigera]

Har nu också skapat en mall som utåt är nästan likadan som den design som brukar användas på mindre ämnessidor såsom "Politk" och "Litteratur". --Rasmus 28 8 oktober 2011 kl. 00.11 (CEST)

Felaktigt datum vid redigering[redigera]

Jag gjorde precis en lite ändring i "Tysk påkörd i spanska VM-rallyt", och vips har den placerats överst i nyhetslistorna, trots att den är skapad 2006. Går detta att åtgärda? - Green Yoshi (db) 14 oktober 2011 kl. 20.15 (CEST)

Det är någon knasighet med DPL som jag inte är säker på hur man kan ordna, men som har diskuterats förut. --Ainali 14 oktober 2011 kl. 20.28 (CEST)
Ok, tack för svaret. Kan det vara för att jag bytte kategori från "Motor" till "Bilsport"? Nyhetslistorna baseras på "Bilsport", och den kanske tas som ny, eftersom jag la den i den kategorin nu. - Green Yoshi (db) 14 oktober 2011 kl. 20.52 (CEST)

Administratörsnominering[redigera]

Skulle det kännas väldigt fånigt om jag redan nominerar mig till administratör? Jag är det på svenskspråkiga Wikipedia och känner att de verktygen skulle behövas även här. Det finns ju inte så många på Wikinews, och nästan samtliga är inaktiva. - Green Yoshi (db) 16 oktober 2011 kl. 19.54 (CEST)

Jag tror inte att någon skulle se något problem med en sådan nominering. Gaisjonke 16 oktober 2011 kl. 20.54 (CEST)
Jag ser inte heller något problem med det. Är du admin på svwp så kan du väl vara det här också om du är någorlunda aktiv. --Rasmus 28 16 oktober 2011 kl. 21.26 (CEST)
Okej, tack. Då kör vi på det! - Green Yoshi (db) 16 oktober 2011 kl. 21.36 (CEST)

Portalrubrik[redigera]

Jag har sett att ett fåtal portaler saknar en "vanlig" rubrik. Detta ser mycket snyggare ut än när det både finns en vanlig och ett snyggt Wikinewshuvud. Jag har försökt titta i redigeringsläget, men hittar inte vad det är som tar bort den. Hur gör man? - Green Yoshi (db) 17 oktober 2011 kl. 09.18 (CEST)

Det finns definierat i MediaWiki:Common.css under rubriken /* Borttagning av rubriker på portaler */--Thurs 17 oktober 2011 kl. 19.58 (CEST)
Jaha. Tack så mycket! Då får jag vänta tills jag (förhoppningsvis) blir administratör. :) - Green Yoshi (db) 17 oktober 2011 kl. 20.14 (CEST)

Tillbackarullare?[redigera]

Varför finns det ingen möjlighet att tillsätta tillbackarullare här? --Rasmus 28 17 oktober 2011 kl. 17.19 (CEST)

För att det inte finns någon sådan användargrupp. Diupwijk 17 oktober 2011 kl. 17.26 (CEST)
Det går dock att begära att man får en sådan grupp. Frågan är dock om det behövs... -- Lavallen 17 oktober 2011 kl. 18.15 (CEST)

Prefix på portaler?[redigera]

Jag har lagt märke till att samtliga (vad jag kan se) av våra portaler saknar prefixet "Portal:", borde vi inte ändra på det? --Rasmus 28 17 oktober 2011 kl. 20.20 (CEST)

Njä, jag tycker nog inte det. Det blir bara "jobbigare" om man måste skriva "portal:" framför. Portalerna är knappast i vägen för artiklarna, eftersom artiklarna inte har så korta namn som "teknik", "natur" eller "Zimbabwe". - Green Yoshi (db) 17 oktober 2011 kl. 21.04 (CEST)
Jag tycker att Green Yoshi har en bra poäng. Det är antagligen extremt sällsynt vi kommer att stå inför problemet att de krockar. --Ainali 17 oktober 2011 kl. 22.06 (CEST)

Aktiviteten[redigera]

Jag tycker att det är roligt att Wikinews de senaste dagarna verkar ha fått en liten "renässans". Hoppas att projektet kan fortsätta att återhämta sig till sin forna glans. --Rasmus 28 17 oktober 2011 kl. 22.40 (CEST)

Adminval[redigera]

Hej! Tänkte bara tala om att det har gått över en vecka på mitt administratörsval och det verkar som inte fler tänker rösta. Jag vill inte stressa, men jag hade gladeligen tagit emot verktygen :) - Green Yoshi (db) 24 oktober 2011 kl. 18.19 (CEST)

Terms of Use update[redigera]

I apologize that you are receiving this message in English. Please help translate it.

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. The translation request can be found at m:Translation requests/WMF/Terms of Use 2 -- Maggie Dennis, Community Liaison 27 oktober 2011 kl. 03.18 (CEST)

Finesser importerade[redigera]

Jag har nu importerat alla finesser från svenskspråkiga Wikipedia. Därför finns till exempel HotCat tillgängligt nu. - Green Yoshi (db) 30 oktober 2011 kl. 19.12 (CET)

Bra jobbat! --Ainali 30 oktober 2011 kl. 20.22 (CET)

Användarkontrollanter?[redigera]

Jag funderade på om vi borde tillsätta någon ip-kontrollant, eller som det hetter här: avnändarkontrollant, utifall att det skulle behövas. Det skulle ju också kunna bli aktuellt med ytterligare en byråkrat då Väsk är inaktiv här samt en censor. --Rasmus 28 2 november 2011 kl. 12.10 (CET)

Enligt WMF's policy kräver IP-kollare och Censorer minst 25-30 stödjande röster vid ett val. Det tror jag inte du kan få fram på den här wikin. Tills ni har vuxit er så stora kan ni kontakta en Steward via wiki-mejl för Censur och m:Steward requests/Checkuser för IP-kontroller.
Det finns ett par stycken Stewards som förstår svenska: User:Laaknor och User:Jafeluv. -- Lavallen 2 november 2011 kl. 13.54 (CET)
Användarkontrollanter och censorer ser jag inget behov av i dagsläget. En byråkrat till skulle dock vara bra, då Ainali är den enda aktiva. Allt ska inte behöva hänga på honom. Gaisjonke 2 november 2011 kl. 15.45 (CET)
Instämmer med Gaisjonke. Om projektet skulle bli större i framtiden kan det finnas behov av det, men inte ännu. - Green Yoshi (db) 2 november 2011 kl. 15.55 (CET)
Nominera gärna en byråkrat till! Man får mer respekt på meta som projekt om det finns minst två fungerande Byråkrater på projektet.
Det blir kanske snart dessutom dags att avsluta den desysop-process som jag startade och avgöra hur en ev inaktivetspolicyn ska formuleras. -- Lavallen 2 november 2011 kl. 17.08 (CET)
Det kanske är lite fel att föreslå det då det trots allt var jag som tog upp frågan, men är det då någon som har något emot att jag nominerar mig själv till Byråkrat då jag trots allt är den mest aktiva administratören som varit aktiv en längre tid. --Rasmus 28 2 november 2011 kl. 17.15 (CET)
Två av tre aktiva admins är samtidigt byråkrater, börjar likna Wikisource det här. Kör på! -- Lavallen 2 november 2011 kl. 17.39 (CET)
OK, då kör vi på det. --Rasmus 28 2 november 2011 kl. 17.40 (CET)
Gällande inaktivitetspolicyn så föreslår jag att vi sätter igång och diskuterar någon sådan ganska snart. Jag föreslår att de som inte utfört en åtgärd (redigering) det senaste halvåret skall medelas om att denne kan komma att avsättas och om inget svar inkommit inom en månad så skall vederbörande avsättas. --Rasmus 28 2 november 2011 kl. 17.49 (CET)
Det låter rimligt. Gaisjonke 2 november 2011 kl. 18.21 (CET)
Kopiera gärna det där inlägget till den rubrik jag redan satt på WN:AAB, så disken blir samlad. -- Lavallen 2 november 2011 kl. 20.10 (CET)
Ska jag göra. --Rasmus 28 2 november 2011 kl. 20.11 (CET)

Kategoriplacering[redigera]

Jag föreslår att vi tar bort kategorierna som ligger överst i artiklarna. Det ser rörigt ut, framför allt i portaler, och de finns ju ändå där nere. - Green Yoshi (db) 5 november 2011 kl. 13.31 (CET)

Vilka kategorier är det som ligger överst? Jag kan inte se några. --Rasmus 28 5 november 2011 kl. 13.46 (CET)
Ta den här som exempel. Kategorierna ligger dels där nere, som vanligt, men även mellan rubriken och texten. - Green Yoshi (db) 5 november 2011 kl. 13.53 (CET)
Ja, efter en stunds test håller jag med. Det är denna redigering som ska göras ogjord. --Ainali 5 november 2011 kl. 14.36 (CET)
Då var det ordnat. - Green Yoshi (db) 5 november 2011 kl. 16.54 (CET)

Val[redigera]

Hej, ville bara påminna om att det gått en vecka i valet på WN:AAB. --Rasmus 28 9 november 2011 kl. 18.54 (CET)

Upprensning av tomma kategorier[redigera]

Jag har nu tagit bort alla tomma kategorier om datum o.s.v. Om dessa senare skulle behövas är det bara att återskapa. --Rasmus 28 11 november 2011 kl. 17.59 (CET)

Jaha, haha! Jag tittade precis i senaste ändringarna och undrade vad du sysslade med, men då förstår jag. Bra! - Green Yoshi (db) 11 november 2011 kl. 18.01 (CET)
Har nu också avlägsnat tomma ämneskategorier utan egna portaler. --Rasmus 28 11 november 2011 kl. 20.59 (CET)
Bra! Det bästa hade varit att radera alla tomma kategorier, men det kanske du gör. - Green Yoshi (db) 11 november 2011 kl. 21.02 (CET)
Nej, jag tänkte behålla Stubbar, Under Översättning och de fyra kategorierna om länder men de sistnämnda skulle jag kunna radera. --Rasmus 28 11 november 2011 kl. 22.50 (CET)
Jag förstår rensningarna av kategorier av typen 3 juli 2005, men inte de av typen 4 april. De senare kommer ju för eller senare att fyllas, och att skapa dem igen är ett dubbelarbete. Nåväl, gjort är gjort. Men att radera kategorier som troligen kommer att få (och förtjäna) innehåll i framtiden bara för att de är tomma nu tycker jag är onödigt. Varför skulle det behöva göras? --Ainali 11 november 2011 kl. 22.58 (CET)
Se Wikinews:Begäran om åtgärder#Oanvända kategorier. -- Lavallen 12 november 2011 kl. 18.22 (CET)

Senaste ändringarna[redigera]

Går det att ändra de länkar som vissas överst Senaste ändringarna? --Rasmus 28 11 november 2011 kl. 19.08 (CET)

Ja. - Green Yoshi (db) 11 november 2011 kl. 19.15 (CET)
Tack då vet jag. Jag lägger till länken till Special:Nya Sidor. --Rasmus 28 11 november 2011 kl. 19.17 (CET)

Systemmeddelande om Upphovsrätt[redigera]

Jag har nu ändrat MediaWiki:Copyrightwarning i enlighet med svwp. Hoppas att det ser bra ut... --Rasmus 28 11 november 2011 kl. 19.30 (CET)

Ja, det är bra :) - Green Yoshi (db) 11 november 2011 kl. 19.33 (CET)
Har även justerat MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdown. --Rasmus 28 11 november 2011 kl. 19.38 (CET)
...och MediaWiki:Edittools. --Rasmus 28 11 november 2011 kl. 19.50 (CET)
Ang MediaWiki:Copyrightwarning så ta också gärna en titt på Wikinews:Copyright. Längst ner på varje sida så står det dessutom (CC-BY). Det finns alltså nu tre olika bud om vilken licens som gäller. Efter att ha tittat på enwn's sidor så får jag intrycket att texten i Wikinews:Copyright är den som gäller (CC-BY 2.5). Det betyder att det inte är riktigt samma som på Wikipedia. -- Lavallen 12 november 2011 kl. 18.51 (CET)
Ordnat (tror jag). --Rasmus 28 12 november 2011 kl. 19.03 (CET)
Fel graf är jag rädd. Den illustrerar CC-BY-SA, inte CC-BY. -- Lavallen 12 november 2011 kl. 19.17 (CET)
Den här kanske? -- Lavallen 12 november 2011 kl. 19.20 (CET)

Accreditation and Google News listings[redigera]

First-off, please forgive my posting in English. I am, as is all-too-common for people from the UK, linguistically challenged.

I want to raise two issues, as-noted in the subject title of this thread: Reporter Accreditation and listing in Google News.

First up, accreditation has worked rather well for Wikinewsies on the English-language version of the project. Personally, I've been given press access to a number of events, other examples may well be reporters getting behind police lines or landing interviews with major political figures.

I have on the English-language version of the project with a view to looking into more than just one project being listed by Google, and other language versions capitalising on accreditation. Please take the time to register any interest in this, the drawbacks from local legal situations, and how we all might better promote Wikinews as a project. --Brian McNeil/talk 20 december 2011 kl. 13.50 (CET)

Well, actually there isn´t so many active editors on this wiki, only five-ten, so i think there won´t be so many people too do this things. But still, it is a good idea. --Rasmus 28 20 december 2011 kl. 22.51 (CET)
It has been disussed earlier, but no one really seemed to want to do it. But I do know several people that have been accredited as photographers, sometimes with the help of Wikimedia Sverige. --Ainali 20 december 2011 kl. 23.12 (CET)

Announcing Wikipedia 1.19 beta[redigera]

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 15 januari 2012 kl. 17.35 (CET)

MediaWiki 1.19[redigera]

(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.

Survey invitation[redigera]

First, I apologize that part of this message is in English. If you can assist by translating it for your local community, I would greatly appreciate it.

The Wikimedia Foundation would like to invite you to take part in a brief survey.

Med denna enkät hoppas Wikimedia-stiftelsen att kunna få reda på vilka resurser wikimedianerna önskar och behöver (några kan kräva finansiella medel) och hur behoven ska prioriteras. Inte alla program från stiftelsen är med här (kärnuppgifterna har speciellt undantagits) – det handlar endast om resurser som individuella bidragsgivare eller organisationer som är associerade med Wikimedia, såsom lokalavdelningar, kunde be om.

Målet är här att identifiera vad DU (eller grupper som lokalavdelningar eller klubbar) kunde vara intresserade av och att prioritera alternativen enligt preferenserna. Vi har på denna lista inte tagit upp sådant som "hålla igång servrarna", eftersom de inte är på individuella bidragsgivares eller frivilligorganisationers ansvar. Denna enkät har till syfte att berätta för oss, vilka prioriteringar av medelfördelningen bidragsgivarna är eller inte är överens om.

To read more about the survey, and to take part, please visit the survey page. You may select the language in which to take the survey with the pull-down menu at the top.

This invitation is being sent only to those projects where the survey has been translated in full or in majority into your language. It is, however, open to any contributor from any project. Please feel free to share the link with other Wikimedians and to invite their participation.

If you have any questions for me, please address them to my talk page, since I won’t be able to keep an eye at every point where I place the notice.

Thank you! Slaporte (WMF) (diskussion) 8 mars 2012 kl. 18.24 (CET)

Wikimedia Sverige tillsätter teknikpoolsutskott[redigera]

Wikimedia Sverige har som en del i verksamhetsplanen för 2012 ett projekt som syftar till att skapa en rutin för att hjälpa gemenskapen att få tillgång till utrustning såsom (men inte nödvändigtvis begränsat till) inscanning, foto- och videoutrustning genom att skapa en välutrustad teknikpool eller låna särskild teknik.

Syftet är att stödja de olika Wikimediaprojekten. För att göra detta på bästa sätt, och sprida arbetet på flera engagerade användare, har styrelsen beslutat att tillsätta ett utskott, som skall ta fram förslag till och besluta om inköp inom projektets budget.

Är du intresserad av att påverka vilken teknisk utrustning som skall ingå i teknikpoolen och deltaga i detta utskott? Anmäl på anmälningssidan.

Mer information om verksamhetsplanen och projektet finner du på Wikimedia Sverige.--Historiker (diskussion) 15 mars 2012 kl. 21.02 (CET)

Gemenskapens projekt 2012[redigera]

Har du velat göra något för Commons, Wikipedia, Wiktonary eller ett annat Wikimedia-projekt som du inte kunnat genomföra pga. att det kostade pengar eller att du saknade utrustning eller en bok? Just för dessa situationer finns årligen Gemenskapens Projekt. Förra året fick Wikimedia Sverige in 11 ansökningar och beslutade då för att under 2012 genomföra projektet i två faser. Nu är det dags för den första omgången!

Sista ansökningsdag är 19 april och projekten bör vara inrapporterade 31 juni. Mer information om hur ansökan bör formuleras finns på Wikimedia Sveriges wiki. Lycka till med era ansökningar!

Om du är intresserad av att hjälpa till, men inte har någon projektidé är du mer än välkommen att anmäla ditt intresse till utskottet som ska godkänna alla ansökningar. Skicka din ansökan till albin.jacobsson@wikimedia.se.Sertion (diskussion) 3 april 2012 kl. 17.49 (CEST)

En lite uppdatering: Anmälningar till Gemenskapens projekt ska göras till gemenskapensprojekt@wikimedia.se och inte info@wikimedia.se som det stod tidigare. Sertion (diskussion) 14 april 2012 kl. 19.16 (CEST)

Update on IPv6[redigera]

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[redigera]

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 5 juni 2012 kl. 20.41 (CEST)

Mobile view as default view coming soon[redigera]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(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 June 21.

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

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.

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.)

Thank you! --Mdennis (WMF)6 september 2012 kl. 04.13 (CEST)

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

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[redigera]

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!

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

(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.

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

(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.

The Wikinewsie Group[redigera]

Hi. After consulting with a number of community members, we have started the first step in creating a potential Wikimedia Affiliate group. The details can be found at The Wikinewsie Group. The purpose of the group is to:

  1. support open license, independent journalistic efforts that provide neutral and verifiable reporting of news stories,
  2. support the education of future journalists in trying to insure they maintain historical journalistic ideals regarding reporting standards,
  3. support efforts to increase journalist freedom to report around the globe,
  4. encourage participation of and facilitate non-professional journalists practicing their craft on Wikinews, and
  5. support the mission statement and vision of the Wikimedia Foundation.

This aims to compliment and support existing efforts, and there is zero intention of imposing one language's policies on another language. The project should assist in increasing original reporting, improving original reporting according to local project standards, better supporting our small community and increasing participation.

Please sign up here by listing your name to indicate you support our group. If you have any questions, please do not hestitate to ask as we will be more than happy to answer them. Thanks. --LauraHale (diskussion) 6 april 2013 kl. 11.43 (CEST)

Feedback would be appreciated on these. If you agree with them and have no suggestions for modification on one or both documents, please comment on Bylaws talk page or Declaration talk page to say so. Conversely, if you are interested in joining The Wikinewsie Group, please feel free to comment on the relevant talk page with feedback on what changes you might like to see.

Hello!

There is a new request for comment on Meta-Wiki concerning the removal of administrative rights from long-term inactive Wikimedians. Generally, this proposal from stewards would apply to wikis without an administrators' review process.

We are also compiling a list of projects with procedures for removing inactive administrators on the talk page of the request for comment. Feel free to add your project(s) to the list if you have a policy on administrator inactivity.

All input is appreciated. The discussion may close as soon as 21 May 2013 (2013-05-21), but this will be extended if needed.

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

[en] Change to section edit links[redigera]

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[redigera]

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.

Dags att stänga svenska Wikinews[redigera]

Se även diskussion på Bybrunnen på Wikipedia.

Svenska Wikinews startade för åtta och ett halvt år sedan med höga ambitioner och mycket entusiasm, men idag är det svårt att hävda att projektet är annat än ett misslyckande. Några av de större språken håller igång sina versioner hjälpligt, men för mindre språk som svenska är det nog dags att ge upp.

Den senaste artikeln publicerades den 16 april. Hittills i år har det publicerats sju artiklar som nästan uteslutande är referat av andra nyhetsartiklar. I de fall det finns en motsvarande Wikipediartikel är den bättre.

Till saken hör att enligt Wikimedias policy är inaktivitet inte skäl nog till att stänga ett projekt. Därför förslår jag att vi istället för att begära en låsning gör en "mjukstängning", alltså att vi blankar huvudsidan, lägger in ett meddelande i sitenotice som berättar att wikin är inaktiv och tar bort interwikilänkar från de andra projektens huvudsidor. På så vis slipper vi byråkratin kring projektstängningar. Väsk (diskussion) 4 augusti 2013 kl. 15.58 (CEST)

instämmer.Yger (diskussion) 8 augusti 2013 kl. 16.32 (CEST)
Instämmer även jag. Det verkar inte heller finnas ambitioner för att driva projektet vidare i någon större utsträckning, så det bästa vore nog om svenska Wikinews stänger ner sin verksamhet. /HeyMid (bidrag) 8 augusti 2013 kl. 16.52 (CEST)
Även jag instämmer. Allt som står på huvudsidan är inaktuellt. Lixer (Diskussion | Bidrag) 8 augusti 2013 kl. 16.56 (CEST)
Instämmer. En nyhetssajt som inte innehåller nyheter är ingen god reklam för WMF. Wikipedias huvudsida är anpassad för att hantera aktuella ämnen och artiklar.--Paracel63 (diskussion) 9 augusti 2013 kl. 03.04 (CEST)
Ja, om projektet inte går att stänga helt enligt WMFs riktlinjer tycker jag att Väsks förslag är bra, blanka och sitenotice. Ainali (diskussion) 9 augusti 2013 kl. 12.49 (CEST)
Jag håller med. Dags att ge upp. -- 77.105.222.249 9 augusti 2013 kl. 14.05 (CEST) Signerar i efterhand, loggades inte in automatiskt. -- Jsdo1980 (diskussion) 10 augusti 2013 kl. 19.54 (CEST)
Även jag håller med. Eftersom det inte uppdateras kontinuerligt och nyheterna på förstasidan är gamla, är det bättre att lägga ner projektet och satsa krafterna på de övriga projekten.--Historiker (diskussion) 9 augusti 2013 kl. 22.17 (CEST)
  • Det verkar finnas övertygande stöd för Väsks förslag, och därför har jag nu blankat huvudsidan med ett kort meddelande och en referens till denna tråd. Sitenotice:en låter jag någon annan fixa; jag tror man måste vara administratör för att göra en sitenotice och tyvärr är jag inte det. /HeyMid (bidrag) 10 augusti 2013 kl. 12.11 (CEST)

Du glömde göra en engelsk översättning. Jag skulle skriva "Swedish Wikinews is no longer active. See pressrummet for more information." Den första svenska meningen skulle jag skriva som "Svenskspråkiga Wikinews är inte längre aktivt". Precis som det heter "Svenskspråkiga Wikipedia" heter det även "Svenskspråkiga Wikinews". Dessutom ska det vara "aktivt" istället för "aktiv" eftersom det är ett projekt vi talar om. /HeyMid (bidrag) 12 augusti 2013 kl. 11.01 (CEST)
Tack för tipsen, jag har åtgärdat det nu. --Ainali (diskussion) 14 augusti 2013 kl. 07.53 (CEST)
Vill i egenskap av en av de sista aktiva användarna här säga att detta nog var ett korrekt beslut. Det är nog egentligen bara en bekräftelse på ett väletablerat faktum. Om det i framtiden kommer finnas några som vill börja om på nytt så finns sidan ju ändå kvar men jag betvivlar att det kommer hända. Rasmus 28 11 augusti 2013 kl. 12.24 (CEST)
Jag tycker att detta gjorts på ett tråkigt sätt. Man kunde åtminste haft de gamla sidorna naviger-bara. Det kunde istället funnits en banderoll att "aktiviteten låg, uppdateringar sker sällan". Som det nu är kunde skiten ha raderats helt. Wikinews (sv) har varit bra för att lägga upp korta artiklar med bilder, så att fotoobjekten ser att någit händer. Skriva i wikipeda.se - jag kommer INTE att göra det. Jag får stroke av alla gamla wiki-stofiler som påpekar att "ämnet måste vänta 2 år innan röken klartnat". Alltså klart oklokt och dumt att stänga. Att aktiviteten varit alltför låg, det är dock riktigt. Men det är ingen som funderat över VAD wikinews skulle kunna göra, bidra med. Skriva referat av andra, mja, det är ju redan vad alla dagstidningar idag gör. Eng wikinews är till över 90% referat av andra källor, så inte imponerande. De få original-artiklar som skriva på engelska, granskas fascistiskt av admin, språket måste vara 100% korrekt, det måste vara skrivet efter exakt en viss formel, och ingen hjälper en nybörjare att få till dessa 2 punkter. Original-artiklar, det är en snubbe i ausdtralien som skriver om lokal sport, och en yngling i chile som skriver om lokala nyheter. Haninge-kuriren har mer eget material... Att det sedan google-listas... ja mycket annat skräp listas ju av google också. Jag har skrivit på en wikinews, gör det inte igen. Så jag tycker öppna igen, gör en bättre/snyggare stängnings-sida, lås inte - för när material finns, ja då gäller det att få ut det med en faslig fart. Inte ha en 3-månaders diskution om vad/hur/när. --Janwikifoto (diskussion) 11 augusti 2013 kl. 23.19 (CEST)
Hej! Ledsen att du tycker så. Jag står fast vid min åsikt att en nyhetstjänst som inte publicerar nyheter (mer än några gånger om året) inte är värd namnet och snarare hindrar än hjälper. Chansen för att den ska få nöjda och återkommande läsare är begränsad. Min erfarenhet av svenskspråkiga Wikipedia är lite ljusare. Vi skriver om nyheter/aktuella ämnen även där, alla är inte "gamla wiki-stofiler", och du får jättegärna vara med och påverka hur Wikipedia ska utvecklas och fungera. Bland annat pågår diskussioner i saken här och här, och du får mer än gärna bidra med dina åsikter där. Tack på förhand. Själv är jag fadder på Wikipedia och hjälper gärna till för att lösa problem och besvara frågor. Vad vill du ha hjälp med?--Paracel63 (diskussion) 12 augusti 2013 kl. 17.22 (CEST)

Ska vi skrivskydda huvudsidan också? Visserligen har det inte varit något problem med klotter än, men det kan ju vara bra i förebyggande syfte plus att det förstärker signalen om att det är stängt. --Ainali (diskussion) 22 augusti 2013 kl. 09.51 (CEST)

Det är kanske att ta det lite för långt? Jag förstår ditt resonemang, men jag ser personligen ingen anledning till att låsa huvudsidan så länge det inte är något problem med klotter etc. Dessutom är detta bara en "mjuk" nedstängning av wikin, det vill säga ingen definitiv nedstängning. Wikin är ju inte stängd för redigering, så det kanske skulle ge ett felaktigt intryck för besökarna. Det kan hända i framtiden att vi överväger att ge svenska Wikinews en ny chans (om än ganska osannolikt). För i övrigt är jag lite halvbesviken över att du bara kopierade det jag skrev och klistrade in det i editnoticen istället för att kopiera själva wikikoden i den texten jag skrev (vilket gjorde att "pressrummet" inte är länkat i editnoticen). /HeyMid (bidrag) 22 augusti 2013 kl. 15.57 (CEST)
Ja, du har en poäng där. Sitenoticen var en ren miss, jag såg inte att det fanns en länk i din text, men det har jag fixat nu. --Ainali (diskussion) 24 augusti 2013 kl. 23.26 (CEST)
I apologize for the English. I boldly re-instated the main page to the pre-announcement of closure. The project is not locked, and people still make edits and announcements here. Until the project is closed on meta, having an announcement that it is closed and not allowing people to contribute, having no one monitor changes, seems to be a problem. --LauraHale (diskussion) 10 oktober 2013 kl. 13.37 (CEST)
You are correct is it not locked, no one claimed that. However, there was quite a consensus to abandon Swedish Wikinews and thus we blanked the front page and put up a site notice. The closing process on Meta seemed like a closed path. I will revert your change as per the community consensus, please discuss here to see if you can sway the community decision. --Ainali (diskussion) 28 oktober 2013 kl. 19.39 (CET)

Site notice[redigera]

Original reporting output[redigera]

First, I apologize for not writing in the project's own language.

Since May 1, when The Wikinewsie Group Newsletter first began tracking original reporting taking place across all projects, 227 stories have been published by 78 reporters 14 different language Wikinews projects. The projects with the greatest number of reporters engaged in original reporting were English with 15, Russian with 14, Polish with 13 and French with 10. Beyond these, original there were one or more journalists engaging in original reporting on Catalan, Chinese, Esperanto, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Serbian, Spanish and Ukrainian. The peak month for reporting across all projects was May with 52 articles. It was followed by June with 49, August with 44, September with 43 and July with 39.

Wikinews original reports by project.png

In the past four months, Spanish, Polish, French, Ukrainian, Russian and English have all produced over 20 total pieces of original reporting, with Russian Wikinews publishing 41 stories and English Wikinews publishing 60 stories.

LauraHale, RockerballAustralia, Antanana, Agamitsudo, Dmitry Rozhkov, Plogi, Krassotkin, Schekinov Alexey Victorovich, and MadriCR have each produced 5 or more pieces of original reporting in the past four months. Another group of users, Joan301009, Bddpaux, Computron, Laslovarga, Fed4ev and Yakudza, have produced four articles each. If you are on this list, please seriously consider applying for accredited reporter status on English Wikinews. This will make it easier to identify contributors from around the globe to do original reporting on any special reporting projects done by The Wikinewsie Group.

For September, only three pieces of 43 original reports produced were translated from one language to another. They were Wikinews interviews specialists on China, Iran, Russia support for al-Assad, Wikinews interviews Dr Thomas Scotto and Dr Steve Hewitt about potential US military intervention in Syria, Atlético de Madrid defeats Real Madrid 1-0 in 2013 derby and Tokio gana la sede de los Juegos Olímpicos 2020. Original reporting is a major strength of Wikinews. It is one we should be playing to. Please consider translating your work into another language, or finding a local reporter to assist you with translation work and publishing policy. This will benefit all languages, promote more cooperation between projects, and expand news reach for our reporting which we can leverage to provide more opportunities for reporters.

The Wikinewsie Group is hoping to facilitate more cross-language work. The Wikinewsie Group/Local Wikinews policies is a list of local policies. If some one from each project could complete the row for their language, it would be incredibly useful. Thank you.

Every month, The Wikinewsie Group puts out a newsletter. Please consider putting any local project news on the newsletter. This could include discussions on reporter accreditation, installation of new extensions, translation policies, WMF related discussions of interest to the project. We want to know what Wikinews projects are up to. We need your assistance with that. Please share what is happening. --LauraHale (diskussion) 1 oktober 2013 kl. 18.10 (CEST)

Notifications[redigera]

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 oktober 2013 kl. 21.16 (CEST)

Introducting Beta Features[redigera]

(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 november 2013 kl. 21.41 (CET)

Call for comments on draft trademark policy[redigera]

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

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 januari 2014 kl. 07.47 (CET)

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

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

Amendment to the Terms of Use[redigera]

Call for project ideas: funding is available for community experiments[redigera]

I apologize if this message is not in your language. Please help translate it.

Do you have an idea for a project that could improve your community? Individual Engagement Grants from the Wikimedia Foundation help support individuals and small teams to organize experiments for 6 months. You can get funding to try out your idea for online community organizing, outreach, tool-building, or research to help make Wikinews better. In March, we’re looking for new project proposals.

Examples of past Individual Engagement Grant projects:

Proposals are due by 31 March 2014. There are a number of ways to get involved!

Hope to have your participation,

Proposed optional changes to Terms of Use amendment[redigera]

Hello all, in response to some community comments in the discussion on the amendment to the Terms of Use on undisclosed paid editing, we have prepared two optional changes. Please read about these optional changes on Meta wiki and share your comments. If you can (and this is a non english project), please translate this announcement. Thanks!

Changes to the default site typography coming soon[redigera]

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.

For more information:

Bot policy[redigera]

Hello. To facilitate steward granting of bot access, I suggest implementing the standard bot policy on this wiki. In particular, this policy allows stewards to automatically flag known interlanguage linking bots (if this page says that is acceptable), which form the vast majority of such requests. The policy also enables global bots on this wiki (if this page says that is acceptable), which are trusted bots that will be given bot access on every wiki that allows global bots.

This policy makes bot access requesting much easier for local users, operators, and stewards. To implement it we only need to create a redirect to this page from Project:Bot policy, and add a line at the top noting that it is used here. Please read the text at m:Bot policy before commenting. If you object, please say so; I hope to implement in two weeks if there is no objection, since it is particularly written to streamline bot requests on wikis with little or no community interested in bot access requests.

Restarting discussion regarding Wikinewsie.org[redigera]

Following the board's rejecting AffComm's recommendation to recognise The Wikinewsie Group, and some confusing communication regarding incorporation, I'm trying to re-open discussion on the matter. If it is more-convenient to copy and translate my post on English Wikinews to enable local discussion, please do.

Restarting the process needs broader support than previously received. That means whatever we end up with has to meet the needs of more contributors and readers. --Brian McNeil/talk 16 april 2014 kl. 16.26 (CEST)

Media Viewer[redigera]


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) 23 maj 2014 kl. 23.29 (CEST)

Media Viewer is now live on this wiki[redigera]


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 juni 2014 kl. 23.54 (CEST)

Wikidata language links are coming![redigera]

Hell everyone,

Sorry for writing in English - I hope someone from the community could translate this if necessary :)

We have just announced that Wikinews will start having it's inter-language links (sitelinks) served by Wikidata on August 19th if nothing changes before then. This will mean sitelinks will no longer be managed through wikitext locally but instead through Wikidata's interface. This brings the chance of having up-to-date language links for all Wikinews communities and the possibility to have links to other projects also served by Wikidata.

You can read more about this and contribute to proposals and Wikidata policies regarding Wikinews at Wikidata:Wikinews over on Wikidata.

On behalf of the development team, John F. Lewis (talk) 22 juli 2014 kl. 21.08 (CEST)

Wikidata is here[redigera]

Hey everyone :)

(Sorry for writing in English. I hope someone can translate this where necessary.)

As announced earlier we just enabled the first part of Wikidata support for you. In this first part you are able to maintain interwiki links centrally on Wikidata and no longer need to keep them in the wikitext. Interwiki links in the wikitext will continue to work though and you can overwrite what is coming from Wikidata if you want to. If you have more questions there is a page on Wikidata with the most important information and where you can also ask your questions: d:Wikidata:Wikinews.

In a later step you'll also get access to the actual data in Wikidata. This includes things like the geocoordinate of a city or the date of birth of a person. I'll keep you informed when that will be as soon as I know.

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decisions[redigera]

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[redigera]

’’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 augusti 2014 kl. 00.15 (CEST)
