Haigh, a TGcoa, agus tá fáilte romhat chuig an Vicipéid! Go raibh maith agat as do chéad dréachtaí anseo. Tá súil agam go mbeidh níos mó ann agus go mbainfidh tú taitneamh as do chuid ama anseo! Tá sé éasca ailt nua a chruthú nó a cheartú. Thig leat dul go dtí an Halla Baile chun caint leis na Vicipéideoirí eile, más mian leat é sin a dhéanamh, nó dul go dtí an Lárionad Comhphobail chun breathnú ar na heachtraí Vicipéide is déanaí. Tá breis eolais fóintigh in ár reamhrá, freisin.

Más é do thoil é, sínigh do chuid theachtaireachtaí ar leathanaigh phlé le ceithre thilde a chlóscríobh; ciallaíonn sé sin go hionsáfar d'ainm úsáideora agus an dáta go huathoibríoch. Má tá cabhair ag teastail uait, féach ar Vicipéid:Cabhair, nó cuir ceist ormsa nó ar na heagarthóirí eile ar ár leathanaigh phlé. Uair amháin eile, fáilte romhat!

Duaiseanna Nobel cuir in eagar

A TGcoa,

Tá "Duais Nobel sa Litríocht" ceart. Féach an nóta a scríobh mé anseo. An n-éireofá as na hathruithe seo agat? Go raibh math agat. SeoMac (talk) 08:37, 12 Meán Fómhair 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Do chuid athruithe ar an Vicipéid cuir in eagar

A TGcoa, léigh mé do theachtaireacht dheireanach ar an leathanach plé i gcomhair Duais Nobel. Tá sé níos fearr freagra a thabhairt anseo.

Tá Gaeilge mhaith ag an duine a scríobh "J.M. Coetzee" (cé go moltar an Caighdeán Oifigiúil a úsáid mura bhfuil baint ag alt le canúint). Maidir le "moladh" molaim duit amharc ar mol i bhfoclóir Uí Dhónaill, fochiall uimh. 4. Bhí sé láncheart. Agus ní raibh i gceist le "sitúdeo" (Wayne Thiebaud) ach mionbhotún cló. Thabharfainn faoi deara é ar an dara huair tríd an alt domh agus tá lánchead ag daoine eile rud mar sin a chur i gceart chomh maith. Ní "faisean" é má bhíonn Panu, Matt Hussey agus Antain Mac Lochlainn ag aistriú "Nobel Prize in X" mar "Duais Nobel sa X". Níl do chuid Gaeilge inchurtha lena gcuidse. B'fhéidir go mbeadh "do X" nó an tuiseal ginideach níos fearr, ach tá "sa X" lánréasúnta. Tá sé chomh nádúrtha gur roghnaigh lucht Vicipéidí Ghaeilge na hAlban agus na Manainnise an bealach céanna chun é a aistriú.

Tá a lán le ceartú ar an Vicipéid s'againne—go díreach mar a bhíonn a lán droch-Bhéarla le ceartú ar Vicipéid an Bhéarla (idir an Bhéarla liobarnach ag cuid de na cainteoirí dúchais agus dhroch-Bhéarla na ndaoine nach bhfuil Béarla ón chliabhán acu). Aontaím leat go gcaithfidh muid a bheith faichilleach cúramach. Tú féin san áireamh. Níor cheart duit "moladh" a athrú in cupla dosaen alt de chuid Felo de Me gan ar a laghad féachaint in Ó Dónaill. Agus níor cheart duit "Duais Nobel sa Litríocht" a athrú in cupla scór alt gan an cheist a phlé leis na daoine eile anseo ar dtús. Cathfidh a bheith ábalta na botúin a cheartú. Ceartaíonn tú rudaí nach bhfuil mícheart agus ní thugann tú faoi deara fíorbhotúin go díreach in aice leo (féach San Francisco. Níl mé ag rá go gcaithfidh tú a bheith foirfe (déanaimse féin botúin ach má cheartaím 15 nó 20 earráid ar achan cheann a dhéanaim, sin dul chun cinn). Tá mé ag iarraidh ort gan ach botúin shoiléire a cheartú. SeoMac (talk) 19:40, 19 Meán Fómhair 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]



Bhuel ní bheidh iontas ort go bhfuil barúil eile agam. Dúirt tú go raibh tú amhrasach faoi céard tá cruinn / míchruinn. Agus dá bharr sin, ní maith leat athruithe a chur ar leathanaigh a scríobh na saineolaithe móra, athruithe ó bhun go hairithe. Mar sin, tá stíl imchoimeádach agat le do chuid eagarthóireachta (m. sh. na leathanaigh thuas a luaigh tú).

Tá tú “ag iarraidh orm gan ach botúin shoiléire a cheartú”. Tá a fhios agat go bhfuil drochíomhá ag Vicipéid i measc pobal na Gaeilge. Ta an stíl tábhachtach (go háirithe má tá teideal i gceist). Caithfidh an eagarthóireacht a bheith níos sáití i mo thuairim féin más féidir (ok easpa ama, easpa eolais srl)

Agus bímis foirfe, le do thoil! Ná habair nár chaith me súil ar Ó Donaill. Níl a fhios dá laghad agat... & is cuma. Taispeáin dom an frása “d-o mol” ar an idirlíon le do thoil. Mar a dúirt mé, b’fhéidir go bhfuil “d-o mol” “ceart” (Muimhneach b’fhéídir) .. níl a fhios agam (gabh mo leithscéal ach níl ionam ach foghlaimeoir). Ach creidim go bhfuil mo chuid eagarthóireachta beagnach 100% “ceart” (ok ionadúil b’fhéidir i gcásanna áirithe .. ach gan botún). Fíor nó bréagach?! Más fíor & sa chiall sin, is mise atá cúramach i ndáiríre.

      • “leis na daoine eile anseo”, a dúirt tú. Cé eile atá anseo?! Is dócha go bhfuil tú i do riarthóir. Agus i d’aonar freisin na laethanta seo? Mar sin, léiriú aonair agatsa ag an am seo?

Cinnte is soiléir go ndéanann tú sár-obair anseo, & faigheann tú buíochas ar bith is dócha. Tá súil agam go mbeidh muid in ann daoine eile a tharraingt, Gaeilge chruinn acu, chun eagarthóireacht a dhéanamh. Aon smaoineamh conas é a dhéanamh? Beir bua!

Universal Code of Conduct cuir in eagar

Hi TGcoa

I was asked by Wikimedia Foundation to promote this call for participation on the planned Universal Code of Conduct.

Best regards --Holder (plé) 04:29, 14 Lúnasa 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

At times, our contributor communities and projects have suffered from a lack of guidelines that can help us together create an environment where free knowledge can be shared safely without fear.

There has been talk about the need for a global set of conduct rules in different communities over time. Recently, Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees announced a Community Culture Statement, asking for new standards to address harassment and promote inclusivity across projects. [1]

The universal code of conduct will be a binding minimum set of standards across all Wikimedia projects, and will apply to all of us, staff and volunteers alike, all around the globe.. It is of great importance that we all participate in expressing our opinions and thoughts about UCoC and its values. We should think about what we want it to cover or include and what it shouldn’t include, and how it may create difficulties or help our groups.

This is the time to talk about it. Before starting drafting the code of conduct, we would like to hear from you and to solicit the opinions and feedback of your colleagues.

In order for your voice to be heard, we encourage and invite you to read more about the universal code of conduct (UCoC) [2] and then write down your opinions or feedback on the discussion page [3]. To reduce language barriers during the process, you are welcomed to translate the universal code of conduct english main page into your respective local language [4]. You and your community may choose to provide your opinions/feedback using your local languages.

We sent you an e-mail cuir in eagar

Hello TGcoa,

Really sorry for the inconvenience. This is a gentle note to request that you check your email. We sent you a message titled "The Community Insights survey is coming!". If you have questions, email surveys@wikimedia.org.

Hello, 20th anniversary of the Catalan Wikipedia cuir in eagar

Hello, Sorry to write in English, I am a real ignoramus in your language... unfortunately. Then you seem to be doing a great job here, congratulations!

I write you this message because we'll be celebrating our Catalan Viquipèdia 20th birthday soon and I would really appreciate having at least one user of your wikipedia saying a few words in your language in a short video, filmed horizontally, congratulating the Catalan Wikipedia. If you can get more people it will be even better and it will help making your language known in the Catalan countries. The time would be around 15 seconds and you are free to say what you want (if the background can be something beautiful of your country (building, monument) it would be just great..) though you would have to finish in Catalan saying "Bon aniversari" and/or "per molts anys". I really hope you will participate! The video has to be sent to viquipedia@wikimedia.cat if possible before February 28th. I hope to hear from you soon! Take real care and have a great week!

Replaceable fair use cuir in eagar

 

I noticed that you have uploaded several files that are being used under a claim of fair use. However, I think that the way it is being used fails the first non-free content criterion. This criterion states that files used under claims of fair use may have no free equivalent; in other words, if the file could be adequately covered by a freely-licensed file or by text alone, then it may not be used on Wikipedia. If you believe this file is not replaceable, please edit the relevant file description pages (in the fair-use rationale sections) with a full explanation of why the files are not replaceable.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace this non-free media item by finding freely licensed media of the same subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or similar) media under a free license, or by creating new media yourself (for example, by taking your own photograph of the subject).

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified how these media fully satisfy the non-free content criteria.

The "fair use" templates are otherwise not a carte-blanche to upload random or copyrighted images found elsewhere on the internet. If there are no images on other Wikipedia projects (for example the English project), or on Commons, perhaps consider questioning why that is the case. (In many cases it is possible that it is because no free versions are available and non-free images cannot be justified under the criteria.)

If you have questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Guliolopez (plé) 02:13, 29 Eanáir 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]





ːOK, thanks for this advice.
I see that you write that if I have questions, (and I have lots ǃ), I should go to the Wikipedia English page and ask the there.

That said, first you can maybe help me better understand what you are saying.
It might be easier if you can take examples and tell me what you would or would not do in certain cases.
For example, take the case of John%20L.%20Murray, the judge. I updated the page today and there is no image on Commons. https://ga.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_L._Murray_(breitheamh)
Now I am not very motivated to put up a picture of him ... obviously subjects more Gaelach are more motivating.
But suppose I want to upload a picture of him.
What would be acceptable ?
My first port of call is a Google image search and I see there that there are no free licences available. I then go to Bing, and I see that there are images, with several types of free licenses avaialble
https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=%22John+L.+Murray%22&qs=n&form=QBIDMH&sp=-1&pq=%22john+l.+murray%22&sc=10-16&cvid=F4F02476E0C64C08A1BEF42C406DE05E&ghsh=0&ghacc=0&first=1&cw=1263&ch=569
I could then crop the image and mention the source.
Now first, what type of free licences are acceptable please ? ... there are several types mentioned on Bing.
Second, what kind of disclaimer or other information should I put up ?

I saw a report comparing the different language Wikipedias, and a major reason why Gaeilge was ranked low was the low number of images compared to other language Wikipedias. Not surprising. given that I am the only person actively uploading images I think.

I do wonder if our proximity to English, where the policing of images is very strict, intimidates people writing as Gaeilge, and editors writing eg in Swahili or Catalan are likely to have a more relaxed interpretation of what can be done.

Thanks for any enlightenment you can share agus beir bua, Ciarán TGcoa (plé) 21:59, 29 Eanáir 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi. A few follow-ups.
  • You're still uploading copyrighted/non-free images with a claim that such images is/are the only ones that can be used to "illustrate the subject in question" on the basis that "no free equivalent is available or could be created". In many cases where there are already multiple other free images on Commons already used to do just that. (Like those identifying the subjects and illustrating the articles on Sinéad O'Connor, Imshruthú teirmeahailíneach, etc). Please stop doing this.
  • Apologies, but you didn't tag me in the above (and I didn't "watch" this talk page) and so I didn't see your response. In all honesty I'm not sure I follow your questions. The two main ones seem to be "what type of free licences are acceptable?" and "what kind of disclaimer or other information should I put up".
  1. The first question (acceptable licences) is largely answered in the policies I already linked above. Generally speaking only Commons-eligible or Public Domain images are appropriate on the project. For example where released by the author (whether you or someone else) under a Commons-compatible a licence or where the image has fallen into the public domain through copyright expiry or whatever. Copyrighted images (like those found on news websites or whatever) can only be used in those very rare circumstances where there truly is no opportunity to take another one (like where the subject is dead and no free or PD images were truly never produced when the subject was alive).
  2. The second question (what tags/info) depends on what licence applies. There are various tags in Catagóir:Clibeanna cóipchirt d'íomhánna. If its your own work, and you're releasing it to a Commons licence (like CC3.0), consider using Teimpléad:CC-3.0. If its not your own work, apply the tag that matches the author or rights-holder's own copyright claims. If its a non-free/copyrighted image, make 100% sure the FUR claim you are adding "stands up". Because, frankly, many of the FUR tags you've applied don't...
  • "a major reason why Gaeilge was ranked low was the low number of images compared to other language Wikipedias". While I'm not sure what ranking system is being used here or where, but I doubt that the Irish language Wikipedia is improved (on any ranking system) by hosting copyrighted images and using them in a way that do not align with the rights-holders' intentions. Copyright violation isn't an improvement.

A chara,

Feicim gur chuir tú téarma scannánaíochta uaidh seo isteach mar alt. Cliste. An bhfuil tú chun na cinn eile a chur leis freisin? Déanfaidh mé féin é mura ndéanfaidh tú. Míle b Eomurchadha (plé) 15:51, 23 Meitheamh 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Eomurchadha go raibh maith agat.
Is féidir leat dul ar aghaidh. Tá na mílte téarma agam a chur isteach, foinsí éagsúla... Beir bua. Ciarán TGcoa (plé) 16:12, 23 Meitheamh 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Do ríomhphoist / overloading event-article titles cuir in eagar

Haigh, a Chiarán,

Tá fadhbanna éigin le do sheoladh ríomhphoist, agus ní féidir liom a fhreagairt. Ar aon nós ... :)

(Béarla, mar Béarla agus tá daoine eile a chloisint)

Ok - this is about adding dates to article titles related to events or people. I've answered this here and there over the past months, and am adding regular links to my move logs to clarify, but let's try collate this in one place. It may also need to go to the broader community.

First off, adding dates to events can make it more difficult to edit, for example "Sa bhliain 2023, tar éis [[Tuairt eitleáin Yevgeny Prigozhin, 2023|tuairt eitleáin Yevgeny Prigozhin]] [...]" is a pretty regular occurrence. You get to do a *lot* of this when titles are overloaded.

Secondly, Wikipedia already has a smart search which can search for events by title and is date-aware because of date categories and Wikidata entries. So we're 'fixing' something that doesn't really need to be.

Thirdly - overloading titles where they're one-offs can just lead to confusion. Just my opinion here, mind.

Also, please check out the guidelines from the English Wikipedia, which I regularly reference in my move logs. Note that I don't move pages where these don't apply. For example, the sports article you created today should have the year in it, as these are annual events.

There are other enwiki rules and guidelines. I think part of the problem here is that on our own wiki, we haven't established these but maybe we should. The enwiki folks usually have a really clear and fine-tuned reason for doing what they do. Anyways ... thank you for all you do here - it's immense, and you're way better than I am at content creation.

Le meas,

- Alison plé 11:42, 26 Lúnasa 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Cogadh Tigray, 2020-2022 cuir in eagar

An cogadh eile ná Éirí amach Woyane mar seo - féach ar en:Woyane Rebellion sa Bhéarla. 'Sé an chúis go bhfuil an teideal en:Tigray War sa Bhéarla agus fr:Guerre du Tigré sa Fhraincís, srl. - Alison plé Alison plé 18:51, 3 Samhain 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Alison, if you do change titles, can you please leave a redirect at least ... doesn't cost anything !

Why? Because sometimes I use the article in outside media , and quickly after writing the article
eg Twitter https://twitter.com/Feilire/status/1720524644065636780/photo/1
and if there is no redirect, my Twitter link doesn't work.
THat doesn't happen frequently, but it did here
and I hate having to redo a Tweet, all the more so just to update a link (and I might even miss that the link no longer works).

More generally, we have a different view on titles. "Cogadh Tigray" is bland, and there were other wars and may be more. Someone looking back at this in a few decaades, hopefully, can get a better idea of what the article is about with a year in the title. In this particular case, the Russian and German language articles I think have years in them, but most don't. Of course, can always change article titles some years down the road.

Take a look at
Catagóir:Eachtraí foréigin le linn na dTrioblóidí
https://ga.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catag%C3%B3ir:Eachtra%C3%AD_for%C3%A9igin_le_linn_na_dTriobl%C3%B3id%C3%AD
Here the years are really important in understanding the course of events, ... even for myself, looking back, I find that the year is useful in helping me find the information that I want quickly, as I don't remember easily the details of these events. And I actually consult it fairly often.
Thanks and all the best

  • Hi Ciarán. Ok - will leave redirects, unless they're gross misspellings or something fundamentally wrong.
  • I can, to an extent, see your rationale with adding the dates to titles, but it's still overloading them, will still cause problems during editing - which is why they're limited on other wikis as you have to constantly disambiguate and you can't refer to them in a natural way while writing. I can see how handy they can be, though. The fix for this would be to have categories and lists. Check out en: Category:The Troubles (Northern Ireland)-related lists, particularly stuff like en:List of bombings during the Troubles, which are all in chronological order.
  • Tell you what - I'll build the category tree, and build those lists. That way, it should be super simple for you and for other folks to get an immediate list of all of the major events in chronological order that are currently in categories that aren't indexed by year. I don't mind putting in the work if it'll make article titles more regular. Thoughts? - Alison plé 04:25, 6 Samhain 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK fine ... let's do that ... thanks for putting in the work. For the Troubles, the chronology of events is very useful for me (the article Na Trioblódí needs to be largely rewritten (Gaeilge agus smaointí aisteacha) and I think best to simplify with a chronology and brief descriptions)
