Prototype for editing Wikidata infoboxes on WikipediaMudificà

Hello,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

New notification when a page is connected to WikidataMudificà

Hello all,

(Aiutaci a tradurre nella tua lingua)

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

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

 

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

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

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

Thanks go to Matěj Suchánek who developed this feature!

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

presenting the project Wikipedia Cultural Diversity Observatory and asking for a vounteer in Corsican WikipediaMudificà

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

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

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

Editing of sitewide CSS/JS is only possible for interface administrators from nowMudificà

(Aiutaci a tradurre nella tua lingua)

Hi all,

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

Thanks!

Machine translation support enabled today for Content TranslationMudificà

Aiutaci a tradurre nella tua lingua

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

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

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

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

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

Multilingual Shared Templates and ModulesMudificà

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

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

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

Élection communautaire au Conseil d'administration de Wikimédia FranceMudificà

Aiutaci a tradurre nella tua lingua

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

Bonjour à toutes et tous,

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

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

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

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

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

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

Update on the consultation about office actionsMudificà

Hello all,

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

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

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

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

Thank you for your input! -- The Trust & Safety team 08:02, 16 aos 2019 (UTC)
