Meta RfCs on two new global groupsCuir in Eagar

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.

Thanks and regards, Ajraddatz (talk) 18:04, 26 Deireadh Fómhair 2014 (UTC)

Leathanaigh TionscnaimhCuir in Eagar

Bhfuil a fhios ag éinne céard í an áit is fearr le leathanach tionscnaimh a shocrú suas ar an Vicipéid? Tá mé tar éis an leathanach seo Wikipedia:WikiProject_Ireland/NUIG_National_Monuments_Editathon_Nov_2014 a aistriú agus a chur i mo spás pearsanta Úsáideoir:Nmacu/tionscnamh_Séadchomharthaí ach is dóigh cheart spás Tionscaimh a thosú ar nós https://ga.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vicipéid:Tionscnaimh. Tá sé i bhfad ó bhí mé ag plé leis an stuif seo. Bheinn buíoch as aon mholtaí. Nmacu (talk) 15:49, 29 Deireadh Fómhair 2014 (UTC)

Ní tharraingeodh leathanach aird rómhór gan a bheith nasctha le rud mar mheirge ar bharr an phríomhleathanaigh. Faraor, níl éinne againn mar atá ag a lán Vicipéidí eile — daoine atá go maith ag dearadh rudaí cliste. Nuair a bhíonn a leithéid ar siúl ar Vicipéid an Bhéarla, ar ndóigh, bíonn a lán de na daoine a mbeadh spéis acu i dtionscnamh ar liostaí agus faigheann muid fógraí ar ár leathanaigh plé. Bheadh orainne é sin a dhéanamh duine i ndiaidh duine, sílim. Ach thiocfadh linn fógra a chur ar na leathanaigh ag roinnt diobh—cairde, eagarthóirí gníomhúla srl. Ní thig liom smaoineamh ar aon rud eile. SeoMac (talk) 20:45, 29 Deireadh Fómhair 2014 (UTC)
GRMA as ucht na moltaí, a SheoMac. Tá an "tAonach Eagarthóireachta" atá á eagrú againn ina rud píolóiteach faoi láthair agus níor mhaith liom an iomarca airde a tharraingt air an uair seo go dtí go bhfeicfimid an mbíonn aon rath air. An rud is mó a bhí mé ag iarraidh fiosrú ná an bhfuil sé chomh simplí le leathanach nua a chruthú ar nós https://ga.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vicipéid:Tionscnaimh le tús a chur le vicítionscnamh nó an bhfuil rudaí breise le déanamh chun an 'namespace' a shocrú suas. Ní raibh deis agam go leor den ábhar teicniúil a léamh i gceart (m.sh. Wikipedia:Wikipedia:Project_namespace) go fóill. Fiosróidh mé tuilleadh é. Nmacu (talk) 10:28, 30 Deireadh Fómhair 2014 (UTC)
Tuigim. Go n-éirí leat. Bhí mé ag smaoineamh ar a leithéid freisin ach ar líne, mar tá muid thar a bheith scaipthe. Maratón eagarthóireachta deireadh seachtaine. Chuaigh mé i gcumarsáid le duine eile faoi agus chuir sé spéis ann. Ar ndóigh, is minic a bhíonn duine amháin ar a laghad anseo a bhfuil maratón ar siúl aici/aige cheana, ach deis a bheadh ann le seanchairde a mhealladh ar ais. Agus ba mhaith liom Dúshlán Vicipéide a thabhairt dona boic mhóra—ábhair ailt an duine a mholadh dona scríbhneoirí, ollaimh, etc.! SeoMac (talk) 03:05, 31 Deireadh Fómhair 2014 (UTC)

Global AbuseFilterCuir in Eagar

Hello,

AbuseFilter is a MediaWiki extension used to detect likely abusive behavior patterns, like pattern vandalism and spam. In 2013, Global AbuseFilters were enabled on a limited set of wikis including Meta-Wiki, MediaWiki.org, Wikispecies and (in early 2014) all the "small wikis". Recently, global abuse filters were enabled on "medium sized wikis" as well. These filters are currently managed by stewards on Meta-Wiki and have shown to be very effective in preventing mass spam attacks across Wikimedia projects. However, there is currently no policy on how the global AbuseFilters will be managed although there are proposals. There is an ongoing request for comment on policy governing the use of the global AbuseFilters. In the meantime, specific wikis can opt out of using the global AbuseFilter. These wikis can simply add a request to this list on Meta-Wiki. More details can be found on this page at Meta-Wiki. If you have any questions, feel free to ask on m:Talk:Global AbuseFilter.

Thanks,

PiRSquared17, Glaisher

Inspire Campaign: Improving diversity, improving contentCuir in Eagar

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. Join us at the Inspire Campaign and help this project better represent the world’s knowledge!

Stewards confirmation rulesCuir in Eagar

Hello, I made a proposal on Meta to change the rules for the steward confirmations. Currently consensus to remove is required for a steward to lose his status, however I think it's fairer to the community if every steward needed the consensus to keep. As this is an issue that affects all WMF wikis, I'm sending this notification to let people know & be able to participate. Best regards, --MF-W 16:12, 10 Aibreán 2015 (UTC)

Nominations are being accepted for 2015 Wikimedia Foundation electionsCuir in Eagar

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

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

On behalf of the Elections Committee,
