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

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. tammikuuta 2014 kello 06.46 (UTC)

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

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[muokkaa]

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

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 Wikisitaatit 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[muokkaa]

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[muokkaa]

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:

Interwiki links via Wikidata are here![muokkaa]

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

Hi everyone,

As previously announced we have just enabled the first part of Wikidata support. This means from now on you can maintain your interwiki links on Wikidata and no longer need to keep them in the wikitext locally. The local links will continue to work and overwrite what is coming from Wikidata. A community member is currently running a bot to take care of the migration where possible so you don't have to do it by hand in most cases.

You can not yet access the other data on Wikidata like the date of birth of a person. This will come in the near future. I will let you know when I have a date for it.

If you have any questions please come to d:Wikidata:Wikiquote. There we have a bunch of helpful people to answer them.

Welcome to the Wikidata family! I'm excited about this first step. More to come. I am looking forward to seeing how this will help you make Wikiquote even better in the future.

Wikidata Phase 2 for Wikiquote[muokkaa]

Hey,

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

Not long ago we enabled language links via Wikidata for Wikiquote. This seems to have gone rather smoothly. Thanks to everyone who helped! But as you know this was only the start. What is actually more interesting is access to the data in Wikidata. We have planned this for June 10th (unless any issues arise). You will then be able to use the data in your articles. I hope this will open up a lot of new opportunities for you.

If you have any questions d:Wikidata:Wikiquote is a good place to find help.

Using only UploadWizard for uploads[muokkaa]

Wikimedia Commons logo

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

so that you can avoid local maintenance and all users can have a functioning, easy upload interface in their own language. All registered users can upload on Commons and existing files will not be affected.

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

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

Nemo 19. toukokuuta 2014 kello 20.38 (UTC)

There seems to be no need to upload files locally here, and only two files have been uploaded so far. As it says in the proposal above, if there is a real need to use a file here, it can be uploaded to Commons. I think that the proposal is reasonable regarding this project (Wikiquote) and it can go ahead as planned. What do the others think, for example Otrfan, Stryn or Canarian? --Pxos (keskustelu) 20. toukokuuta 2014 kello 13.00 (UTC)

Media Viewer[muokkaa]


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. toukokuuta 2014 kello 21.29 (UTC)

Wikidata Phase 2 is here[muokkaa]

Hey,

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

Today the ability for all Wikiquotes to query and access the data available in Wikidata has been enabled. This will open the opportunity for all Wikiquote's to start sharing the same data as other languages as well as other projects. You can read up on the Lua implementation of Wikidata at this page which includes basics of how to query the data and display certain properties. This section may also be of use to the community.

Media Viewer is now live on this wiki[muokkaa]


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. kesäkuuta 2014 kello 21.54 (UTC)

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decisions[muokkaa]

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.

Meta RfCs on two new global groups[muokkaa]

Hello all,

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

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

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

Global AbuseFilter[muokkaa]

Hei,

AbuseFilter on MediaWiki-laajennus, jota käytetään havaitsemaan todennäköisesti loukkaavat käyttäytymiskuviot, kuten samankaltainen vandalisointi ja mainostaminen. Vuonna 2013 järjestelmänlaajuiset väärinkäyttösuodattimet otettiin käyttöön rajoitetuissa joukoissa wikejä, sisältäen Meta-Wiki, Mediawiki.org, Wikispecies ja kaikki "pienet wikit". Hiljattain järjestelmänlaajuiset väärinkäyttösuodattimet otettiin käyttöön myöskin "keskikokoisissa wikeissä". Näitä suodattimia hallinnoivat tällä hetkellä ylivalvojat Meta-Wikissä ja niiden on havaittu olevan todella tehokkaita Wikimedia-projektien laajuisessa mainoshyökkäysten torjunnassa. Kuitenkaan tällä hetkellä ei ole käytäntöjä siitä, kuinka järjestelmänlaajuisia väärinkäyttösuodattimia hallinnoidaan, vaikkakin ehdotuksia on olemassa. Tällä hetkellä on käynnissä kommenttipyyntö linjauksista koskien järjestelmänlaajuisen väärinkäyttösuodattimen käyttöä. Sillä välin, yksittäiset wikit voivat pyytää järjestelmänlaajuisen väärinkäyttösuodattimen poistamista wikistään. Nämä wikit voivat lisätä pyynnön siitä tälle listalle Meta-Wikissä. Lisätietoa löytyy tältä sivulta Meta-Wikissä. Jos sinulla on kysyttävää, voit kysyä sivulla m:Talk:Global AbuseFilter.

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

VE as BetaFeature.png

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

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

To access it, you will need to visit the Beeta-ominaisuudet page after the deployment and tick the box next to "Visuaalinen muokkaaminen". (If you have enabled the "Ota automaattisesti käyttöön kaikki uudet beeta-ominaisuudet" option, VisualEditor will be automatically available for you.) There will also be a "<Visualeditor-preference-language-label>" that you can enable if you need it.

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

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

Inspire Campaign: Improving diversity, improving content[muokkaa]

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

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

Yllä linkitetty ilmoitus on suomennettu ja fiwikin kahvihuoneessa on lisätietoa aiheesta. Special:UsersWhoWillBeRenamed luetteloi ne tunnukset, jotka tullaan uudelleennimeämään Wikisitaateissa. Jos joku löytää itsensä listalta, hänen kannattaa napsauttaa linkkiä Special:MergeAccount, jolloin tunnusten yhdistämisen myötä saa käyttöönsä oman tunnuksen nimellä varustetun järjestelmänlaajuisen käyttäjätunnuksen, mikäli se ei jo ole jonkun muun hallussa. Jos järjestelmänlaajuinen tunnus kuitenkin on jo jonkun muun hallussa, oman tunnuksensa voi pyytää nimettäväksi uudelleen toimintosivun Special:GlobalRenameRequest kautta – silloin välttää tunnuksensa joutumisen hännälliselle nimelle (tyyliin Koikkalainen~fiwikiquote; huom. byrokraatit eivät nykyään voi muuttaa käyttäjätunnusten nimiä). Nimenvaihtopyynnön voi jättää myös sen jälkeen, jos/kun oma tunnus on päätynyt hännälliselle nimelle.
Linkin Special:Centralauth kautta voi tarkistaa, onko jokin tunnus järjestelmänlaajuinen. Järjestelmänlaajuisten tunnusten tapauksessa ainoastaan ne paikalliset tunnukset, joiden kohdalla lukee ”ei liitetty” (engl. ”not attached”) tullaan nimeämään uudelleen.
Sen, tuleeko tietty paikallinen tunnus olemaan toimenpiteiden kohteena, voi tarkistaa menemällä selaimella osoitteeseen
https:///fi.wikiquote.org/w/index.php?title=Special:UsersWhoWillBeRenamed&offset=VAIHDA
jossa teksti VAIHDA on korvattu tiedonhaun kohteena olevalla käyttäjänimellä. Ko. osoitteeseen menemisen jälkeen on syytä tutkia myös ”Edellinen sivu” (engl. ”Previous page”) -linkin kautta avautava näkymä, koska tunnus voi löytyä sieltä.

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

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

Wmf logo vert pms.svg

Greetings,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you,

Wikidata: Access to data from arbitrary items is coming[muokkaa]

(Sorry for writing in English)

When using data from Wikidata on Wikipedia and other sister projects, there is currently a limitation in place that hinders some use cases: data can only be accessed from the corresponding item. So, for example, the Wikipedia article about Berlin can only get data from the Wikidata item about Berlin but not from the item about Germany. This had technical reasons. We are now removing this limitation. It is already done for a number of projects. Your project is one of the next ones:

  • 15 June 2015: Wikipedias: ar, ca, es, hu, ko, ro, uk, vi

We invite you to play around with this new feature if you are one of the people who have been waiting for this for a long time. If you have technical issues/questions with this you can come to d:Wikidata:Contact the development team.

How to use it, once it is enabled:

I hope it will be helpful for you and allow you to do useful things with the help of Wikidata.

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

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

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

This change would affect all wikis, so if you support/oppose or want to give general feedback/concerns, please post them to the proposal page. Thank you. --McZusatz (talk) & MediaWiki message delivery (keskustelu) 24. heinäkuuta 2015 kello 05.07 (UTC)
