Additional interface for edit conflicts on talk pagesCuir in Eagar

Sorry, for writing this text in English. If you could help to translate it, it would be appreciated.

You might know the new interface for edit conflicts (currently a beta feature). Now, Wikimedia Germany is designing an additional interface to solve edit conflicts on talk pages. This interface is shown to you when you write on a discussion page and another person writes a discussion post in the same line and saves it before you do. With this additional editing conflict interface you can adjust the order of the comments and edit your comment. We are inviting everyone to have a look at the planned feature. Let us know what you think on our central feedback page! -- For the Technical Wishes Team: Max Klemm (WMDE) 14:14, 26 Feabhra 2020 (UTC)[]

Hello. Apologies if you are not reading this message in your native language. Please help translate to your language if necessary. Thank you!

There are a lot of conversations happening about the future of our movement names. We hope that you are part of these discussions and that your community is represented.

Since 16 June, the Foundation Brand Team has been running a survey in 7 languages about 3 naming options. There are also community members sharing concerns about renaming in a Community Open Letter.

Our goal in this call for feedback is to hear from across the community, so we encourage you to participate in the survey, the open letter, or both. The survey will go through 7 July in all timezones. Input from the survey and discussions will be analyzed and published on Meta-Wiki.

Thanks for thinking about the future of the movement, --The Brand Project team, 19:44, 2 Iúil 2020 (UTC)

Using Wikidata to create contentCuir in Eagar

Sorry about my English interjection here! I added quite a few Irish articles around 6 years ago, and also introduced Wikidata - I then created the automated list Úsáideoir:Llywelyn2000/Muintir na hÉireann b in Republic, wich takes a feed from Wikidata once a day. On the Welsh Wikipedia, some articles take in 95% of their content from Wikidata eg cy:Hampstead, Maryland. But one step at a time! I'd like to add a few extra templates, so that we can automate a few things, if that's ok. Let me know on my Talk page if I do something wrong, as I unfortunately have no Irish, or if you can help.

On Friday I added all 1,700+ taxon common name in Gaeilge na hÉireann (and all 5 other Celtic languages), which can now be used within gawiki. I'd like to develop a small project based on these bird names.... and Wikidata!

Slán.... Robin aka Llywelyn2000 (plé) 16:00, 18 Lúnasa 2020 (UTC)[]

OK. So I've added a few Wikidata templates and edited (as an example) the article on Spideog; please correct the intro 'Ainmneacha i dteangacha Ceilteacha eile:'. The code here can be copied to any other articles on species and will automatically generate Irish text.This will help to 'de-stub' short articles and add 'weight' to the wiki. Llywelyn2000 (plé) 06:58, 19 Lúnasa 2020 (UTC)[]
It's good to see the person infobox (Teimpléad:WD Bosca Sonraí Duine) calling up Wikidata! Brilliant Megan (Úsáideoir:Dowlinme) at work! Thanks Úsáideoir:TGcoa for your suggestions on the Spideog article, which I've taken aboard. The problem with placing the names in a table however is that some languages won't appear. For example if the name isn't on Wikidata, it will be blank in the table. The existing one-line-one-name format, however, will have no blanks and should look good. As soon as I've finalised the code I'll come back. Úsáideoir:Ériugena has agreed to keep an eye on the project, having done so much work on birds in the past. On the Welsh wiki we have discussions similar to this page (Lárionad comhphobail) every day, and it's called our Cafe; on the Breton wiki it's called a Tavern! Just food for thought!

Leabhair de chuid CoiscéimCuir in Eagar

A chairde, roinnt blianta ó shin, rinne mé obair in éineacht leis an Ollamh Matt Hussey agus leis an bhfoilsitheoir Coiscéim chun an chiclipéid eolaíochta Fréamh an Eolais a chur ar fáil anseo. Bhí Úsáideoir:Ériugena i dteagmháil le Coiscéim le déanaí, agus dúirt siad go mbeidís sásta pictiúir dá gcuid leabhar, chomh maith le sonraí éagsúla (teideal, údar, b'fhéidir achoimre, srl), a chur ar fáil le foilsiú ar an Vicipéid. Creidim go mbeadh sé úsáideach níos mó leathanach a bhaineann le leabhair Ghaeilge a fheiceáil anseo. Ba mhaith linn an plean seo a phlé le riarthóirí na Vicipéide i dtús báire. I measc na rudaí le plé ná Polasaí "Suntasachta" na Vicipéide seo. Tá a fhios agam go bhfuil polasaí níos doichte ó thaobh suntasachta ar Vicipéid an Bhéarla (cf. en:Wikipedia:Notability_(books) mar shampla), ach creidim go mbeadh sé chun leas Vicipéid na Gaeilge polasaí níos réchúisí a chur i bhfeidhm. Ar Vicipéid na Breatnaise, glactar le leathanach a bhaineann le leabhar ar bith atá scríofa sa Bhreatnais, mar shampla (cf cy:Wicipedia:Amlygrwydd). Luíonn sé sin le réasún, dar liomsa, toisc nach bhfuil ach roinnt mílte leabhar i gceist acu (agus againne), i gcomparáid leis na milliúin i mBéarla. Bhur dtuairimí?

Ó thaobh suntasachta de, tá polasaí de facto níos leithne againn anseo le tamall anuas agus ábhar Éireannach i gceist, go mór mhór a bhaineann leis an Ghaeilge. Bheinn ar son polasaí foirmeálta a chur ar bun atá cosúil leis an bpolasaí sin acu ag Vicipéid na Breatnaise. Caithfidh go bhfuil a lán míreanna acu ag Wikimedia atá teorannta don Vicipéid úd, nach bhfuil? Maidir le pictiúir de chlúdaigh leabhar de chuid Choiscéim, nach gciallódh sin go mbeadh éinne faoin spéir ábalta iad a úsáid? Tá mé ag smaoineamh ar chipcheart. Buíochas ag gabháil leatsa agus le Ériugena as an méid oibre a bhíonn ar siúl agaibh (gan trácht ar dhaoine eile). SeoMac (plé) 08:25, 25 Meán Fómhair 2020 (UTC)[]
Míle buíochas, SeoMac! Pléifidh mé cúrsaí le hÉirugena; nílim cinnte faoi na cúrsaí cóipchirt ag an bpointe seo. Tá súil agam go mbeidh Coiscéim sásta na clúdaigh a chur ar fáil faoi CC/SA. Bheinn sásta le polasaí cosúil leis an gceann sa Bhreatnais freisin; b'fhéidir go ndéanfaidh mé iarracht aistriúchán a dhéanamh air sin, mar dhréacht ar aon nós. Beidh mé ar ais leat.

Due to copyright issues, book and album covers are uploaded onto the gawiki rather than Commons. However, the 'Uaslódáil comhad' button (left) is directed to Commons rather than gawiki. Therefore it's impossible to upload files on a fair use licence. I note that there are many images uploaded on this open licence in Teimpléad:Clúdach leabhair, therefore I take it that this has been changed by WMF / Meta as there isn't as yet an Irish Fair use policy / non-free policy. If it's desirable then we can redirect the 'Uaslódáil comhad' link from Commons to gawiki. Llywelyn2000 (plé) 15:08, 1 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)[]
This link shows that there are 1,208 non-free images on gawiki; it also shows that only admins can upload. There's a discussion on creating a special wiki for non-free stuff here. Whether it comes or not, in order for non-free images to stay, we / Wikimedia Commons will need the relevant policies in place: eg Vicipéid:Leathanach tuairiscithe íomhá, en:Wikipedia:Non-free content criteria, en:Wikipedia:Non-free content (policy) and an en:Exemption Doctrine Policy. Then we can get the upload button in place and the book covers will stay on gawiki! Llywelyn2000 (plé) 15:45, 19 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)[]
Ok, Béarla ar an am seo, brón orm, as we've many people here that may not be fluent. I added the ping command here yesterday, so let's try that out! @SeoMac:, @Evertype:, @Kevin Scannell:, @Ériugena: - I think things need to happen in this order;
  • Draft a set of policies around non-free, fair-use media. From what I've seen, this needs to be compliant to US law, as well as laws within the jurisdiction of where this content would normally be accessed (thus, Ireland). Policy here. They're called out above, but I think we as a community need to draft these now and come to consensus on the text.
  • Here are the guidelines for Non-Free Content
  • I think we can look at policies for other minority language wikis, and leverage their wording for the most part.

Am I making this place better or worse?Cuir in Eagar

I'm gonna write this in English. I want to get honest opinions from the community: am I making this Wiki worse by editing and me with imperfect Irish? An example of my translation: YBC 7289 (this version). That's about as good as I can muster, I've taken every precaution. I bet there are some mistakes in it, but how bad is it really? I don't want to contribute to a situation where an Vicipéad is covered with bad Irish. I'll try to use the Athbhreithniú template on everything from here on out, but I understand that there may not be enough man-hours from volunteers with high levels of Irish to correct everything. So should I stop editing and go study grammar for six months or a year instead, or should I keep editing and tagging for Athbhreithniú? Samalou (plé) 20:39, 20 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)[]

Hi Samalou; my two cents: we want you here and value your contributions to Wikipedia. But there's a lot you can do in terms of editing and improving articles even without fully fluent Irish. For example, several editors are in the process of changing articles to make heavier use of Wikidata-based templates (see Lu Xun for one example); you could help with that work. If you have some technical skills, the templates themselves could use some improvement in terms of layout and what information is included. Many other articles lack images, category information, and interwiki links (to other language versions on the same topic). Again this is my opinion as an occasional contributor; others might feel differently. Kevin Scannell (plé) 12:57, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)[]
I doubt my translation is perfect – YBC 7289 (this version) – but is it a disaster or is it kinda okay? I don't want to make the language look bad online, like the guy at sco.wikipedia.org Samalou (plé) 14:02, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)[]
Is fearr Gaeilge bhriste ná Béarla cliste, you do you. I made big contributions to German language wiki only for them to be deleted rather than corrected. It's so disheartening. I'd second Kevin's suggestion. There's lots of Wikidata tools that can be used to beef up articles. Also translating from simple.wikipedia.org is a good place to start to create stubs, as google translate is less likely to mess it up. Bogger (plé) 14:48, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)[]
I translated Jessica Alba from simple.wikipedia.org, as it was one of their starred articles. I noticed articles there are just lesser quality than on enwiki, fewer references etc., but it's still a good start. And while I do intend to contribute in less language-focused ways, that doesn't help me advance my Irish Samalou (plé) 15:02, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)[]
As far as that YBC 7289 article goes, I made a first editing pass, just correcting grammatical errors. It took me a while, and I haven't even started trying to rephrase things in a more natural way. This puts a burden of work on the very small number of editors to clean these articles up (or we leave them, which means the quality of this Wikipedia remains poor — this is a big reason more fluent and native speakers aren't interested in contributing — that's my main worry). My advice would be to look for some of these other ways to contribute until you get more experience with the language. Kevin Scannell (plé) 14:59, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)[]
Thanks for your honesty. That was my worry also Samalou (plé) 15:02, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)[]
Apart from YBC 7289, ones I've translated that need a glanadh are Jessica Alba, Hetaira, Sara Forbes Bonetta, Dina bint Abdul-Hamid, Collaíocht sa tSean-Róimh (←pretty long), Próta-Ind-Eorpais (← longest).

There is plenty of work to do without perfect Irish. You aren't like the guy on Scots Wiki and it's a good thing you are here. There's a knack for realizing limitations and not going further. If whole articles from English are too much to handle, scale back. Do less ambitious ones where you can use older articles as templates. Kevin outlined some work with deploying Wikidata-based templates. There is also information to be updated elsewhere: the figures on the Covid-19 table, mar shampla. Agus ansin tá Liosta tíortha de réir daonra agus Liosta tíortha de réir OTI, agus araile. Tá sé tábhachtach, freisin, staidéar a dhéanamh ar an teanga, mar a luaigh tú. Léigh a lán freisin agus scríobh. Fiú mura gcaitheann tú an oiread sin ama anseo ar feadh tamaill. SeoMac (plé) 17:15, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)[]
One thing I'd be interested in doing is increasing the amount of citations and referencing. Take the front-page article on Piaras Béaslaí mar shampla; it's long and detailed, but it's really just based on one book. Or Mars (pláinéad) has huge uncited sections though it's otherwise thar barr. It makes it look like we're holding ourselves to lower encyclopædic standards than other Vicipéadanna. É sin ráite, mo chuid Gaeilge a chleachtadh cuspóir atá agam. I just need to study a bit more grammar and I should be able to make less terrible translations. And sure we're locked indoors for six weeks now so plenty of time to practice. Samalou (plé) 21:15, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)[]
Sin smaoineamh maith. References are lacking. When they are links on the English Wikipedia, they can be checked to see if they are still live. And we are not limited to the Eng. Wiki either. SeoMac (plé) 21:42, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)[]

Sonraí WikiDataCuir in Eagar

(Béarla le nóimead)

Hi all - I've been trying to put sense on the WikiData being reflected through via infoboxes here, as well as WikiData being pulled into articles, etc. So, hopefully, you should start to see a lot of the Béarla that's appearing there, slowly vanish. That said, I've made a good few hundred translations over on WikiData - can someone possibly scan through them for correctness / context? I don't trust myself to be 100% accurate!! Mile buioch! - Alison 06:00, 12 Samhain 2020 (UTC)[]

I took a quick first look at a couple things. I'll try to follow up. GRMMA as do shaothar uilig. SeoMac (plé) 09:08, 13 Samhain 2020 (UTC)![]

@Alison and SeoMac: It's good to hear you discussing using WD inside an article as well as in infoboxes! You can do this, for example on information which constantly changes eg population. If you add this code:

{{wikidata|properties|qualifier|references|normal+|best|Q45|P1082|P585}} 

on the article on An Phortaingéil, for example, you will get:

An Phortaingéil has a current population of 10,347,892 (2021)[1].

together with relevant references to the latest census. Really handy, but disallowed on every wiki other than Welsh!!!

If using on any other country, town, village etc just change the Qid from Portugal's Q45 to the new one. You can get this on Wikidata eg Spain's Qid is Q29 and Ireland's code is Q27. By doing this, populations become alive, updated automatically, morphing and you breath live into an otherwise stagnant, redundant, fossilised wiki. Llywelyn2000 (plé) 13:39, 11 Nollaig 2020 (UTC)[]

Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globallyCuir in Eagar

Please help translate to your language

Hello everyone,

I apologize for posting in English. I would like to inform everyone that I created a new global request for comment (GRFC) at Meta Wiki, which may affect your project: m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

In this GRFC, I propose that two-project shortcuts for project names will become a default alias for the project namespace. For instance, on all Wikipedias, WP will be an alias to the Wikipedia: namespace (and similar for other projects). Full list is available in the GRFC.

This is already the case for Wikivoyages, and many individual projects asked for this alias to be implemented. I believe this makes it easier to access the materials in the project namespace, as well as creating shortcuts like WP:NPOV, as well as helps new projects to use this feature, without having to figure out how to request site configuration changes first.

As far as I can see, Vicipéid currently does not have such an alias set. This means that such an alias will be set for you, if the GRFC is accepted by the global community.

I would like to ask all community members to participate in the request for comment at Meta-Wiki, see m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions about this proposal.

Best regards,

Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2Cuir in Eagar

Please help translate to your language

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a universal baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire Wikimedia movement and all its projects. The project is currently in Phase 2, outlining clear enforcement pathways. You can read more about the whole project on its project page.

Drafting Committee: Call for applicationsCuir in Eagar

The Wikimedia Foundation is recruiting volunteers to join a committee to draft how to make the code enforceable. Volunteers on the committee will commit between 2 and 6 hours per week from late April through July and again in October and November. It is important that the committee be diverse and inclusive, and have a range of experiences, including both experienced users and newcomers, and those who have received or responded to, as well as those who have been falsely accused of harassment.

To apply and learn more about the process, see Universal Code of Conduct/Drafting committee.

2021 community consultations: Notice and call for volunteers / translatorsCuir in Eagar

From 5 April – 5 May 2021 there will be conversations on many Wikimedia projects about how to enforce the UCoC. We are looking for volunteers to translate key material, as well as to help host consultations on their own languages or projects using suggested key questions. If you are interested in volunteering for either of these roles, please contact us in whatever language you are most comfortable.

Who are the Election Volunteers in your community?Cuir in Eagar

 
Do you want to be an Election Volunteer?

Would you like to get more people taking part in the Wikimedia Foundation’s Board of Trustees election?

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees announced the plan for the 2021 Board elections. That plan includes outreach and communication support for the Board elections. The Board election facilitators will:

  • Inform communities of the trustee selection process
  • Invite communities to engage in voting
  • Encourage people representing emerging Wikimedia communities to run as candidates

Voter turnout in prior elections was about 10% globally. It was better in communities with volunteer election support. Some of those communities reached over 20% voter turnout. We know we can get more voters to help assess and promote the best candidates, but to do that, we need your help.

We are looking for volunteers to serve as Election Volunteers. Election Volunteers should have a good understanding of their communities. The facilitation team sees Election Volunteers as doing the following:

  • Promote the election in their communities’ channels
  • Organize discussions about the election in their communities
  • Translate messages for their communities

Who are the Election Volunteers to connect your community with this movement effort? Is it you? Or someone you know? Check out more details about Election Volunteers and add your name next to the community you will support in this table or get in contact with a facilitator. We aim to have at least one Election Volunteer for Wiki Projects in the top 30 for eligible voters. Even better if there are two or more sharing the work.

An invitation to discuss three questions regarding the Movement Charter drafting committeeCuir in Eagar

 
Discuss questions about the Movement Charter drafting committee

Hi there! This is an invitation to discuss three questions that need answers to create the Movement Charter drafting committee:

  • What composition should the committee have in terms of movement roles, gender, regions, affiliations and other diversity factors?
  • What is the best process to select the committee members to form a competent and diverse team?
  • How much dedication is it reasonable to expect from committee members, in terms of hours per week and months of work? Should the initial members commit for the whole duration of the project or should renewals be expected?

The objective is to collect questions, opinions, ideas, points of agreement and disagreement. A first report of this conversation will be published by the end of Friday, June 25 to inform the Global Conversations on the 26-27 of June.

Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election has come to an endCuir in Eagar

Thank you for participating in the 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election! Voting closed August 31 at 23:59. The official data, including the four most voted candidates, will be announced as soon as the Elections Committee completes their review of the ballots. The official announcement of the new trustees appointed will happen later, once the selected candidates have been confirmed by the Board.

6,946 community members from 216 wiki projects have voted. This makes 10.2% global participation, 1.1% higher than in the last Board elections. In 2017, 5167 people from 202 wiki projects cast their vote. A full analysis is planned to be published in a few days when the confirmed results are announced. In the meantime, you can check the data produced during the election.

Diversity was an important goal with these elections. Messages about the Board election were translated into 61 languages. This outreach worked well. There were 70 communities with eligible voters voting in this election for the first time. With your help, next year’s Board of Trustees election will be even better.

Results for the 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees electionCuir in Eagar

Read in other languages

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2021 Board election. The Elections Committee has reviewed the votes of the 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election, organized to select four new trustees. A record 6,873 people from across 214 projects cast their valid votes. The following four candidates received the most support:

  1. Rosie Stephenson-Goodknight
  2. Victoria Doronina
  3. Dariusz Jemielniak
  4. Lorenzo Losa

While these candidates have been ranked through the community vote, they are not yet appointed to the Board of Trustees. They still need to pass a successful background check and meet the qualifications outlined in the Bylaws. The Board has set a tentative date to appoint new trustees at the end of this month.

Non-Mediawiki Search Links are for Norwegian WikipediaCuir in Eagar

I noticed on the search page there is a drop down for Google and Yahoo. If you use either of those options, Norwegian Wikipedia is searched, instead of Irish Wikipedia. For example, if you type in storc and search Google, it generates the search storc site:no.wikipedia.org. On Yahoo, you can see a filter on the right that says "Restricted to no.wikipedia.org". Unfortunately, I don't know where these are configured, but it'd be great if someone could fix them. Thanks! (Sorry for writing in English.) TJones (WMF) (plé) 21:52, 17 Meán Fómhair 2021 (UTC)[]
