Be a Wikimedia fundraising "User Experience" volunteer!Ändere

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

I am (still) searching for volunteers to spend some time on a Skype chat with me, reviewing their own country's donation pages. It will be done on a 'usability' format (I will ask you to read the text and go through the donation flow) and will be asking your feedback in the meanwhile.

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

By helping us you are actually helping thousands of people to support our mission of free knowledge across the world. If you are interested (or know of anyone who could be) please email ppena@wikimedia.org. All countries needed (excepting USA)!!

Thanks!

Gestaltung der StartseiteÄndere

Hallo zusammen,

ich fände es sinnvoll, die Gestaltung der Houpsigk etwas zu modernisieren und ansprechender zu gestalten. Zum Beispiel halte ich die ganzen Links auf die anderen Spracheversionen für überflüssig, die wichtigen stehen doch schon in den Interwikilinks in der Seitenleiste. Wozu soll man da auf der Houpsigk (!) noch mal alle Wikipedien nach Größe geordnet aufführen (noch dazu sind die ganzen Zahlen nicht einmal aktuell). Das könnte man auch alles einfach auf einer eigenen Projektseite stehen, wenn es das Bedürfnis danach gibt.

Zum zweiten würde ich vorschlagen, dass diese mehrsprachigen Hinweise, was die Ripuarische Wikipedia ist, gestrichen werden.

Stattdessen würde ich auf der Houpsigk lieber (wie in anderen Wikipedien) interessante Artikel und Bilder präsentieren.

Die derzeitige Gestaltung stammt natürlich noch aus der Anfangszeit der Ripuarischen Wikipedia, damals hat man das so gemacht, da man ja auch noch keine größere Auswahl an Artikeln hatte. Aber um die Ripuarische Wikipedia wieder voranzubringen, d. h. endlich wieder mehr Leute zum Mitschreiben zu motivieren, sollte man glaube ich die Startseite neu gestalten.

Viele Grüße aus dem Süden,

--Holder (Klaafe) 13:30, 9. Jan 2013 (CET)

Hallo Holder,
der Vorschlag klingt sehr vernünftig. Ich fürchte aber, dass es kaum gelingen wird, hier ein Einverständnis über die Wunschform zu erzielen. Du kannst ja gerne deinen Vorschlag zur Wahl stellen. Meine Unterstützung hast du, denn ich finde die aktuelle Form absolut nicht mehr zeitgemäß. Da eine solche Arbeit aber sehr zeitaufwendig ist sollte man vorher Klarheit schaffen, was gewünscht ist.
Gruß aus dem Westen
--BBKurt (Klaafe) 15:07, 9. Jan 2013 (CET)
Unter Benutzer:Holder/Test1 habe ich jetzt einmal einen Versuch zur Neugestaltung angefangen. Ich schlage vor, dass auf der Hauptseite jeden Monat ein neuer Artikel präsentiert wird. Weitere Vorschläge für die Artikel des Monats wären z. B. August Macke, Vincent van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, Langefääl, Olpe (Kürten), Troisdorf, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Konrad Adenauer, Zweide Weltkresch, Christoph Kolumbus, Linux (Bedriefsystem).
Bei den Neuigkeiten ("Et Neuste") könnte man interessante Links auf Zeitungen, Webseiten usw. präsentieren, wie dies schon auf der Alemannischen, der Plattdeutschen, der Saterfriesieischen, der Nordfriesischen und der Westfriesischen Wikipedia geschieht. Unter "Schon jewusst" könnte man in einem gelegentlichen Wechsel alle möglichen Artikel präsentieren, wie es auf den meisten anderen Wikipedien gängig ist.
Die Texte habe ich zum großen Teil erst einmal von der jetzigen Hauptseite übernommen, natürlich kann man sie auch anders schreiben, aber meine Ripuarisch-Kenntnisse sind doch eher passiver Natur :-). Aber es müsste auf jeden Fal jemand alles durchsehen, ob es so richtig ist. Mir geht es zunächst einmal hauptsächlich um das grundlegende Design.
Zum weiteren Vorgehen: ich würde einfach ein Wahl ansetzen mit einer Abstimmung, die sagen wir mal vier Wochen läuft. Da würde ich ich die jetzige Form und meinen Vorschlag zur Wahl stellen und jeder andere kann natürlich auch noch einen eigenen Vorschlag machen.

Picture of the Year voting round 1 openÄndere

Dear Wikimedians,

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Wikidata phase 1 (language links) coming to this WikipediaÄndere

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

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

What is Wikidata?Ändere

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

What is going to happen?Ändere

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

Where can I find more information and ask questions?Ändere

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

I want to be kept up to date about WikidataÄndere

Convert complex templates to Lua to make them faster and more powerfulÄndere

(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.

Inaktive AdminstratorenÄndere

Hallo zusammen,

in der Liste der Administratoren der Ripuarischen Wikipedia sind 6 Benutzer aufgeführt:

Von diesen sechs Benutzern sind drei seit mehr oder weniger langer Zeit inaktiv: Caesius seit 01.03.2007, Helesike seit 08.09.2011, Manes seit 26.05.2007.

Ich denke, man kann davon ausgehen, dass diese drei Benutzer sich dauerhaft aus der Ripuarischen Wikipedia zurückgezogen haben. Deswegen möchte ich hiermit vorschlagen, dass hier eine neue Richtlinie zur Aktivität von Administratoren eingeführt wird. Mein Vorschlag dazu ist:

Wenn ein Administrator und/oder Bürokrat ein Jahr inaktiv ist, d. h. in dieser Zeit keinen Edit gemacht hat, dann werden ihm automatisch die Admin- bzw. Bürokratenrechte entzogen.

Weitere Alternativen können hier bis zum 14. April vorgeschlagen werden. Die Abstimmung läuft bis zum 22. April 2013; 18:00 Uhr.

Die Regeln zur Abstimmung sind von hier übernommen: Stimmberechtigt sind alle angemeldeten Benutzer, die mindestens 33 Tage angemeldet sind und außerdem mindestens 15 Edits im Artikelnamensraum beigetragen haben.

Jeder kann mit Pro, Contra oder Neutral stimmen.

Wenn am Ende der Abstimmung mehr Pro- als Contra-Stimmen vorhanden sind, wird die Änderung angenommen, bei Gleichstand oder einem Übergewicht der Contra-Stimmen bleibt die bisherige Regelung bestehen, dass die Adminrechte dauerhaft vergeben werden. Neutrale Stimmen gehen nicht in die Auswertung ein.

Wikidata phase 2 (infoboxes) coming to this WikipediaÄndere

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[en] Change to section edit linksÄndere

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 gitÄndere

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.

VisualEditor and your WikipediaÄndere

(Please translate this message)

Greetings,

The Wikimedia Foundation will soon turn on VisualEditor for all users, all the time on your Wikipedia. Right now your Wikipedia does not have any local documents on VisualEditor, and we hope that your community can change that. To find out about how you can help with translations visit the TranslationCentral for VisualEditor and read the easy instructions on bringing information to your Wikipedia. The User Guide and the FAQ are very important to have in your language.

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

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

If we can help your community in any way with this process, please let me know and I will do my best to assist your Wikipedia with this |exciting development. You can contact me on my meta talk page or by email. You can also contact Patrick Earley for help with translations and documents on Mediawiki. We look forward to working with you to bring the VisualEditor experience to your Wikipedia! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:06, 30. Jul 2013 (CEST)

HTTPS for users with an accountÄndere

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

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

NotificationsÄndere

 
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) 20:51, 4. Okt 2013 (CEST)

Introducting Beta FeaturesÄndere

(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) 21:13, 5. Nov 2013 (CET)

VisualEditor coming to this wikiÄndere

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

VisualEditor is coming to this project on December 2, 2013. VisualEditor is software in development to allow people to edit pages in MediaWiki without needing to learn wikitext syntax (like typing [[ to start a link). It is already available and in use on some Wikipedia projects. Please see mw:Help:VisualEditor/FAQ for more information.

When this software arrives, you will have the option to use it or to use the current wikitext editor. When you press “edit”, you will get the new VisualEditor software. To use the wikitext editor, you can press “edit source”. For more information about how to use VisualEditor, see mw:Help:VisualEditor/User guide.

We hope that this software will be useful to people in your community, and we can really use your help to make it better! Please let us know if you find any problems. If you're willing and able, please report the issue in bugzilla in the "VisualEditor" product. If you would prefer not, please explain the issue you found on the central feedback page on mediawiki.org. Once VisualEditor is made available, if there are any urgent problems, like an unexpected bug suddenly causing widespread severe problems, please e-mail James Forrester, the Product Manager, at jforrester@wikimedia.org for immediate attention.

We would also appreciate help with translation with the pages about VisualEditor here and on MediaWiki.org, and its user interface. To translate the user interface, start by creating an account at TranslateWiki. Once your account request is approved, all you need to do is select your language from this list. This will give you a list of individual lines and paragraphs. The English original will be on one side, with the option to “edit” on the other. Pressing “edit” will open an edit window where you can work.

The User Guide is another important document. To translate this, simply go to the MediaWiki.org page, and select “translate this page”. Your language should be available from the drop-down menu on the right. If you want to help with translations and would like to talk about how, please leave a message for me on my talk page.

Thank you, and happy editing! -- Mdennis (WMF) (talk) 20:48, 15. Nov 2013 (CET)
