憑什麽北方話版本wiki頁叫"中文版"?文言粵文贛文吳文wiki也是中文版啊[編寫]

zh 版wiki充其量就是官話白話文版本罷了,怎麼能獨攬"中文"這個頭銜?看我當年到中國各地方言論壇拿回來的<打瞌睡駡老師>之各地文字之翻譯: 非方言版本: 汝彼娘之大去老嫗, 若非吾之留去操之在汝. 今日言吾之闔眼小憩, 定當頂不少於兩三句。 憤也,小憩者,非止吾也, 何也點而言之? 況乎餘尚未失神,其冤枉也。 汝有何能? 若真有能, 何也伏於案上之學子者多於半者? 厭汝者十者多有六, 汝良乎? 其數可見也。 前事不咎, 今日之事則可惡也, 而令吾所氣憤。 母之,誠彼娘之非悅!

下面的都是我手寫我口的方言書寫:

拼音問題[編寫]

各個地方嗰發音有蠻大嗰差別,Symane提意見話要在贛語維基百科上實現字同到各地嗰字音轉換,有南昌音,撫州音,宜春音等,將通用的漢字轉換成各地的拼音讓大家都可以讀得懂。請大家發表意見。--Vipuser 2008年6月1日 (禮拜天) 08:03 (UTC)

箇隻想法偶老早就話非常要得嘍,但係不曉得技術上舞得正啵?--Jiangxinese 2008年6月2日 (禮拜一) 08:40 (UTC)
可參攷zh-yue:user:sl/wiki/utoolbox.js, zh-yue:Special:PrefixIndex/user:sl/wikiHillgentleman 2008年6月13日 (禮拜五) 09:17 (UTC)
不错额!饿够的勾个功能十分总要,饿现在有些字都看不懂!比如哇“你”饿们够里都系写成“嫩”Qa003qa003 2012年2月15日 (禮拜三) 15:54 (UTC)

機器人[編寫]

而今要搞一隻機器人來整理文章內地嗰wp/gan/,箇隻工作量蠻太,手工浪費蠻多時間,還有要搞隻機器人來清理分類,Category:維基百科裡頭嗰有幾百隻分類要整理。--Vipuser 2008年6月4日 (禮拜三) 03:53 (UTC)

維基百科試驗嗰時間不係咁嗰,不曉得而今為什哩咁亂。倷曉得啷舞機器人啵,倷就跟到舞一隻唦!--Jiangxinese 2008年6月4日 (禮拜三) 13:16 (UTC)
偶不晓得舞啊,要到中文维基请隻人来搞一下--Vipuser 2008年6月4日 (禮拜三) 13:39 (UTC)
偶學哩一下,倷去看一下wikipedia:機器人。--Vipuser 2008年6月7日 (禮拜六) 08:23 (UTC)

禮拜幾??[編寫]

禮拜幾同到星期幾都話,而今星期幾相對話得多,是不是應該翻譯成星期幾啊,往中文一樣,禮拜幾一般是信仰基督教嗰人話嗰,有違反中立原則嗰嫌疑--Vipuser(話事) 2008年6月10日 (禮拜二) 03:00 (UTC)

用「禮拜」二字箇係流傳下來嗰,話係話佢源自宗教,但箇層意思早就拕忘吥嘍,偶不覺得咁違反wiki嗰「中立原則」。再話到南昌就冇幾隻人話「星期」,好拗口嗰!Symane 2008年6月12日 (禮拜四) 09:54 (UTC)

而今最需要做嗰幾隻事[編寫]

大家都來討論一下箇隻問題?討論出對以後贛語維基百科發展影響大,目前急需要做箇事,還有可以用機器人自動完成嗰事,省得浪費人工。我先來話幾隻。

  • 補充文章內容:而今我建立蠻多日子嗰文章,架子都搭起來哩,可以往日子或年份內填當日相關嗰內容,提高文章嗰質量。
  • 學習機器人技術:我前幾工學哩一滴子機器人技術,而今還扤得不熟,但已經感覺到機器人蠻殺賴,希望大家都能學滴子,把一些簡單重複嗰工作扤機器人做,要是自己不曉得扤,也可以提出來讓別人來舞。

各位也都來發表一下高見,把贛語維基舞得更好。--Vipuser(打講) 2008年6月11日 (禮拜三) 03:43 (UTC)

    • 補充內容:箇係非常重要嗰,像Wikipedia:許年今日大多數嗰條目都係空嗰。
    • 機器人:偶個人係扤伓來,請別嗰咯… :)
    • 拼音化User:Symane嗰箇隻想法真嗰係非常喫價,要係真嗰扤起來嗰話,偶估別嗰中文維基都要來學囉,到時間收不收版權費都係隻問題!!^.^ Jiangxinese 2008年6月11日 (禮拜三) 11:37 (UTC)

偶仰上會做正Portail:江西人同到Portail:贛語嗰方言兩隻主題。話到「拼音化」嗰工作,勞請Vipuser能搭把手幫吖忙!Symane 2008年6月12日 (禮拜四) 09:58 (UTC)

怎么幫啊?--Vipuser(打講) 2008年6月13日 (禮拜五) 03:35 (UTC)
老早就跟倷話過,繁簡轉換完全可以參考得正中文維基百科,佢俚已經扤得非常來事嘍。倷哈話倷到中文wiki扤過一吖子繁簡轉換,咁對箇套程序就應該更了解嘍。係吥哩?
再話拼音話嗰工作,箇完全跟繁簡轉換係一隻原理,扤起來哈會好艱難啊?Symane 2008年6月13日 (禮拜五) 11:26 (UTC)
首先,程序還要往開發人員哇一下,先裝上繁簡轉換系統,然後可以根據標籤改作偶哩需要嗰樣子,關鍵是要標注拼音嗰字是哪些?轉換顯示嗰時候是光顯示拼音還是音往字一起顯示。箇是隻工作量相當大嗰事。要有隻規劃一步一步扤。--Vipuser(打講) 2008年6月14日 (禮拜六) 16:41 (UTC)
具體嗰程式偶完全不懂,哆真要請倷幫吖忙。漢字轉換成拼音,偶嗰想法係全部轉換,就像「繁簡轉換」樣,界面語言、界面內容都轉換成拼音。不曉得倷啷話?要係偶幫得正忙偶肯定幫,要係倷對咁箇也冇幾清楚,偶也可以尋別嗰來幫吖子忙。好啵?Symane 2008年6月16日 (禮拜一) 14:15 (UTC)个边银气北够啊,北管是礼拜还是星期,还是周,个银哇都有系的北同啊,又毛的统一!应该搞部星子个文献出来。
繁简转换如果需要的话我可以帮你们打开。另外,关于zh-hant下把条目讨论页挪到用户讨论页的bug我非常抱歉,我犯了一个低级错误,已经在rev:47906中修复了。—PhiLiP 2009年3月1日 (禮拜天) 14:00 (UTC)

portal namespace[編寫]

Dear guys, You haven't got the "portal" namespace set up (see, e.g.: special:allpages, and also Talk:Portal:贛語嗰方言 ). You need to request it at bugzilla: (c.f. bugzilla:9346). - Hillgentleman. 恩仍哈是乱写咯,写咯樊替次,就当是安仁话?

Thank you for your suggestion. I tried like you told but failed, so could you please tell me exactly how I can set up a namespace? --Symane 2008年8月23日 (禮拜六) 16:30 (UTC)

关于繁简转换[編寫]

因为上面提到了这件事,而Symane也在我在中文维基百科的页面提及此事。因为我目前已经获得了MediaWiki的SVN帐号,因此如果赣语维基的确有繁简转换的需求,我愿意帮各位为赣语加上繁简转换。目前需要明了的是:赣语维基需要哪几种变换?是只需要繁体和简体抑或还是需要别的变换?是允许内容繁简混编(启用双向转换)还是写繁出简(启用单向转换)?希望赣语维基的社群能为我明确这几点,我才好添加转换程序。此致。—PhiLiP 2009年3月6日 (禮拜五) 11:44 (UTC)

  • 謝謝你的幫忙!我個人覺得「繁簡對換」,即雙向轉換。但不建議轉換「一簡對多繁」的字。如安福的古稱是安復,而不是安複。當然,將來還會可能需要配置「漢羅對換」,但還是先從漢字轉換著手起吧!--Symane 2009年3月8日 (禮拜天) 18:18 (UTC)
我也认为只要一对一的双向转换(可以带上手动的纠错转换)。其他的问题应该没有什么问题了,小问题的话等系统上了以后再解决。--Vipuser(打講) 2009年3月9日 (禮拜一) 13:08 (UTC)
另外,现在名字空间已经翻译成赣语,这样会引起繁简转换的错误,请注意下这个问题,如果名字空间可以自动转换繁简最好(比如自动转换别名),或是改回用英文的名字空间)。--Vipuser(打講) 2009年3月9日 (禮拜一) 13:12 (UTC)
名字空間的錯誤需要儘快地糾正過來,translatewiki那邊說要等,可這麼久都還沒有動靜。--Symane 2009年3月9日 (禮拜一) 15:03 (UTC)
支持雙向轉換!但什麽叫手動糾錯哦?是中文維基條目上頭的中港台譯名轉換那樣的啊?--Jiangxinese 2009年3月11日 (禮拜三) 09:07 (UTC)
手動糾錯應該係話萬一出錯,人工手動改錯應該都舞得正嗰。像「下面」同到「下麵」舞混樣嗰。--Symane 2009年3月12日 (禮拜四) 00:50 (UTC)
综合一下:
  1. 转换表将采用zh的转换表,但只使用zh-hans和zh-hant部分,如有需要以后可以定义gan-hans和gan-hant的专用转换表,并fallback于zh-hans和zh-hant;
  2. 启用后可以在MediaWiki:Conversiontable/gan-hansMediaWiki:Conversiontable/gan-hant定义全局转换表;
  3. 将在MediaWiki中增加两门语言:赣语简体(gan-hans)与贛語繁體(gan-hant);
  4. 启用后可使用与中文维基百科完全相同的-{}-语法进行手动转换,当然标签将修改为gan-hans和gan-hant。
以上,过一会儿我就动工了。—PhiLiP 2009年3月12日 (禮拜四) 03:10 (UTC)
已啪是为rev:48336,下次Wikimedia服务器更新的版本应该在48500左右。—PhiLiP 2009年3月12日 (禮拜四) 05:04 (UTC)

疑问:最近看了下简体版,面板上确实显示𠮶了,可是文章中显示的是嗰;面板上的“厅下”为繁体,正文中却为简体?不知是不是哪里有点小问题?--Biŋhai 2009年5月23日 (禮拜六) 16:05 (UTC)

有滴人嗰電腦顯示不正「𠮶」字,故係我個俚決定繁簡體都不轉換「嗰」字。「廳下」嗰事我箇就去舞正。Symane 2009年5月24日 (禮拜天) 07:44 (UTC)
謝謝。“廳下”在首頁终于正常了--Biŋhai 2009年6月7日 (禮拜天) 14:36 (UTC)

九個語言維基百科於6月10日啟用新介面[編寫]

  • 依據基金會於6月3日發布的消息,日語,西班牙語,德語,法語,意大利語,俄語,波蘭語,葡萄牙語和荷蘭語等版本的維基百科,將於協調世界時的6月10日上午5點半起用新介面。西波蘭,九種語言相應的新介面的介紹文件也準備妥當了。如此一來,連同率先啟用的英文版,位於維基百科首頁的10種語言版本將全部到位,成為第一批使用新介面的維基百科網站。
  • 請留意發布進度--Jasonzhuocn 2010年6月10日 (禮拜四) 14:41 (UTC)

英語維基詞典[編寫]

大家好,在此以中文發言,如有不周不當之處敬請包涵。

最近英語維基詞典投入使用了一項措施,意圖將所有漢語言的詞條都歸置於Chinese之下(比如Asia),我先不懷疑其所能暗含的意義,僅就漢語言內部的多樣性、繁雜性,這項措施也對你我可能的編輯是非常不便利的。

這項措施並未被指定英語維基詞典社群的正式方針,只屬幾個貢獻較多的人員的私下決定,多日以來我已經表示抗議,但無奈寡難敵眾。因此我呼籲大家前去英語維基詞典Wiktionary:Beer parlour)表示自己對此種做法的意見。致!--Symane 2010年6月22日 (禮拜二) 15:07 (UTC)

Symane兄,你的連結放錯了。我去找你的貢獻才找到你說的頁面。--Jasonzhuocn 2010年6月25日 (禮拜五) 01:10 (UTC)

2010 Fundraising Is Almost Here[編寫]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

Hello Wikipedians, I am Theo and I am working for the Wikimedia Foundation during the 2010 Fundraiser. My job is to be the liaison between your community and the Foundation. This year's fundraiser is intended to be a collaborative and global effort; we recognize that banner messages which may perform well in the United States don't necessarily translate well, or appeal to international audiences.

I'm contacting you as I am currently looking for translators who are willing to contribute to this project by helping translate and localize messages into different languages and suggesting messages that would appeal to your readers on the Fundraising Meta Page. We've started the setup on meta for both banner submission, statistical analysis, and grouping volunteers together.
Use the talk pages on meta, talk to your local communities, talk to others, talk to us, and add your feedback to the proposed messages as well! I look forward to working with you during this year's fundraiser. If someone could translate this message I would really appreciate it so that everyone is able to understand our goals and contribute to this year's campaign.

用本字还是用借字?[編寫]

Wikipedia:赣语本字:目前用的好像都是第二列的假借字啊?为什么不用本字呢?假借字用多了读起来不像赣语,反倒像火星文。——虞海 2010年11月23日 (禮拜二) 03:51 (UTC)

好似?
再話,蠻多本字箇下都冇尋還來。--Symane 2010年11月23日 (禮拜二) 13:44 (UTC)
無vs冇,還系更喜歡用“冇”,無不知不覺就哇成漢語的“wu"了。--Vipuser(打講) 2010年11月26日 (禮拜五) 11:52 (UTC)
故係箇下有用戶想到漢字邊上注音,好似日語假名樣嗰,為得就係避免文讀嗰影響。--Symane 2010年11月27日 (禮拜六) 11:16 (UTC)
邊上注音可以實現,mau --Jasonzhuocn 2010年12月20日 (禮拜一) 19:07 (UTC)
各位有無考慮過,先做一個用戶可選的ruby markup功能。造一個對照表,開啟功能的用戶可以看到依著對照表標注音的內容。可以依各地方言差異造不同的轉換表,例如昌都片有一張對照表、大通片也有一張對照表。對照表可以不用全,一邊補充一邊用。--Jasonzhuocn 2010年12月25日 (禮拜六) 08:38 (UTC)
我先頭都港想過,末後蠻多人覺得舞起來蠻囉嗹嗰,就港不了了之哩。--Symane 2010年12月26日 (禮拜天) 12:21 (UTC)
這個想法跟拼音文字轉換的出發點不同。變成以漢字寫作為主,轉換出來一部分的文字上頭顯示拼音。所以不強調表格先做全,而是先開始。但是綜觀其他語言的百科,也還未出現過這樣的顯示方式。姑且提出來當作一種意見。--Jasonzhuocn 2010年12月26日 (禮拜天) 12:44 (UTC)
標上拼音不利于排版,倒不如加提示,比如:“”。虞海 2011年2月3日 (禮拜四) 19:28 (UTC)
方法要得,但舞起來艱難。故係不提倡,因為會增加大量無意義嗰模板。--Symane 2011年2月6日 (禮拜天) 11:32 (UTC)
饿够的还系"冇"更好!就系有些词语比如“汝”不太好!Qa003qa003 2012年2月15日 (禮拜三) 15:57 (UTC)

Special:用戶貢獻/183.37.73.13[編寫]

我怎麼覺得沒有江西話的味道?是不是用多了粵語的字?--User:183.37.73.13

事實上,語言學上時常搦贛語、粵語劃入贛粵方言,因為箇兩隻語言有蠻多嗰相似點。故係粵語字有蠻多字拕用做贛語文書。--Symane 2011年1月7日 (禮拜五) 23:54 (UTC)

Call for image filter referendum[編寫]

The Wikimedia Foundation, at the direction of the Board of Trustees, will be holding a vote to determine whether members of the community support the creation and usage of an opt-in personal image filter, which would allow readers to voluntarily screen particular types of images strictly for their own account.

Further details and educational materials will be available shortly. The referendum is scheduled for 12-27 August, 2011, and will be conducted on servers hosted by a neutral third party. Referendum details, officials, voting requirements, and supporting materials will be posted at Meta:Image filter referendum shortly.

Sorry for delivering you a message in English. Please help translate the pages on the referendum on Meta and join the translators mailing list.

Announcing Wikipedia 1.19 beta[編寫]

Wikimedia Foundation is getting ready to push out 1.19 to all the WMF-hosted wikis. As we finish wrapping up our code review, you can test the new version right now on beta.wmflabs.org. For more information, please read the release notes or the start of the final announcement.

The following are the areas that you will probably be most interested in:

  • Faster loading of javascript files makes dependency tracking more important.
  • New common*.css files usable by skins instead of having to copy piles of generic styles from MonoBook or Vector's css.
  • The default user signature now contains a talk link in addition to the user link.
  • Searching blocked usernames in block log is now clearer.
  • Better timezone recognition in user preferences.
  • Improved diff readability for colorblind people.
  • The interwiki links table can now be accessed also when the interwiki cache is used (used in the API and the Interwiki extension).
  • More gender support (for instance in logs and user lists).
  • Language converter improved, e.g. it now works depending on the page content language.
  • Time and number-formatting magic words also now depend on the page content language.
  • Bidirectional support further improved after 1.18.

Report any problems on the labs beta wiki and we'll work to address them before they software is released to the production wikis.

Note that this cluster does have SUL but it is not integrated with SUL in production, so you'll need to create another account. You should avoid using the same password as you use here. — Global message delivery 2012年1月15日 (禮拜天) 00:10 (UTC)

MediaWiki 1.19[編寫]

Update on IPv6[編寫]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it, as well as the full version of this announcement on Meta)

The Wikimedia Foundation is planning to do limited testing of IPv6 on June 2-3. If there are not too many problems, we may fully enable IPv6 on World IPv6 day (June 6), and keep it enabled.

What this means for your project:

  • At least on June 2-3, 2012, you may see a small number of edits from IPv6 addresses, which are in the form "2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334". See e.g. w:en:IPv6 address. These addresses should behave like any other IP address: You can leave messages on their talk pages; you can track their contributions; you can block them. (See the full version of this announcement for notes on range blocks.)
  • In the mid term, some user scripts and tools will need to be adapted for IPv6.
  • We suspect that IPv6 usage is going to be very low initially, meaning that abuse should be manageable, and we will assist in the monitoring of the situation.

Read the full version of this announcement on how to test the behavior of IPv6 with various tools and how to leave bug reports, and to find a fuller analysis of the implications of the IPv6 migration.

2011 Picture of the Year competition[編寫]

македонскиnorskpolski

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2011 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We are interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year 2011. Any user registered at Commons or a Wikimedia wiki SUL-related to Commons with more than 75 edits before 1 April 2012 (UTC) is welcome to vote and, of course everyone is welcome to view!

Detailed information about the contest can be found at the introductory page.

About 600 of the best of Wikimedia Common's photos, animations, movies and graphics were chosen –by the international Wikimedia Commons community– out of 12 million files during 2011 and are now called Featured Pictures.

From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons Features Pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories.

We regret that you receive this message in English; we intended to use banners to notify you in your native language but there was both, human and technical resistance.

See you on Commons! --Picture of the Year 2011 Committee 2012年6月5日 (禮拜二) 18:18 (UTC)

Help decide about more than $10 million of Wikimedia donations in the coming year[編寫]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it)

Hi,

As many of you are aware, the Wikimedia Board of Trustees recently initiated important changes in the way that money is being distributed within the Wikimedia movement. As part of this, a new community-led "Funds Dissemination Committee" (FDC) is currently being set up. Already in 2012-13, its recommendations will guide the decisions about the distribution of over 10 million US dollars among the Foundation, chapters and other eligible entities.

Now, seven capable, knowledgeable and trustworthy community members are sought to volunteer on the initial Funds Dissemination Committee. It is expected to take up its work in September. In addition, a community member is sought to be the Ombudsperson for the FDC process. If you are interested in joining the committee, read the call for volunteers. Nominations are planned to close on August 15.

Wikidata is getting close to a first roll-out[編寫]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.)

As some of you might already have heard Wikimedia Deutschland is working on a new Wikimedia project. It is called m:Wikidata. The goal of Wikidata is to become a central data repository for the Wikipedias, its sister projects and the world. In the future it will hold data like the number of inhabitants of a country, the date of birth of a famous person or the length of a river. These can then be used in all Wikimedia projects and outside of them.

The project is divided into three phases and "we are getting close to roll-out the first phase". The phases are:

  1. language links in the Wikipedias (making it possible to store the links between the language editions of an article just once in Wikidata instead of in each linked article)
  2. infoboxes (making it possible to store the data that is currently in infoboxes in one central place and share the data)
  3. lists (making it possible to create lists and similar things based on queries to Wikidata so they update automatically when new data is added or modified)

It'd be great if you could join us, test the demo version, provide feedback and take part in the development of Wikidata. You can find all the relevant information including an FAQ and sign-up links for our on-wiki newsletter on the Wikidata page on Meta.

For further discussions please use this talk page (if you are uncomfortable writing in English you can also write in your native language there) or point me to the place where your discussion is happening so I can answer there.

Fundraising localization: volunteers from outside the USA needed[編寫]

Please translate for your local community

Hello All,

The Wikimedia Foundation's Fundraising team have begun our 'User Experience' project, with the goal of understanding the donation experience in different countries outside the USA and enhancing the localization of our donation pages. I am searching for volunteers to spend 30 minutes on a Skype chat with me, reviewing their own country's donation pages. It will be done on a 'usability' format (I will ask you to read the text and go through the donation flow) and will be asking your feedback in the meanwhile.

The only pre-requisite is for the volunteer to actually live in the country and to have access to at least one donation method that we offer for that country (mainly credit/debit card, but also real-time banking like IDEAL, E-wallets, etc...) so we can do a live test and see if the donation goes through. All volunteers will be reimbursed of the donations that eventually succeed (and they will be low amounts, like 1-2 dollars)

By helping us you are actually helping thousands of people to support our mission of free knowledge across the world. Please sing up and help us with our 'User Experience' project! :) If you are interested (or know of anyone who could be) please email ppena@wikimedia.org. All countries needed (excepting USA)!

Thanks!

Wikidata phase 1 (language links) coming to this Wikipedia[編寫]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg

Sorry for writing in English. I hope someone can translate this locally.

Wikidata has been in development for a few months now. It is now time for the roll-out of the first part of it on your Wikipedia. Phase 1 is the support for the management of language links. It is already being used on the Hungarian, Hebrew, Italian and English Wikipedias. The next step is to enable the extension on all other Wikipedias. We have currently planned this for March 6.

What is Wikidata?[編寫]

Wikidata is a central place to store data that you can usually find in infoboxes. Think of it as something like Wikimedia Commons but for data (like the number of inhabitants of a country or the length of a river) instead of multimedia. The first part of this project (centralizing language links) is being rolled out now. The more fancy things will follow later.

What is going to happen?[編寫]

Language links in the sidebar are going to come from Wikidata in addition to the ones in the wiki text. To edit them, scroll to the bottom of the language links, and click edit. You no longer need to maintain these links by hand in the wiki text of the article.

Where can I find more information and ask questions?[編寫]

Editors on en:wp have created a great page with all the necessary information for editors and there is also an FAQ for this deployment. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

I want to be kept up to date about Wikidata[編寫]

To stay up-to-date on everything happening around Wikidata please subscribe to the newsletter that is delivered weekly to subscribed user’s talk pages. You can see previous editions here.

Convert complex templates to Lua to make them faster and more powerful[編寫]

(Please consider translating this message for the benefit of your fellow Wikimedians)

Greetings. As you might have seen on the Wikimedia tech blog or the tech ambassadors list, a new functionality called "Lua" is being enabled on all Wikimedia sites today. Lua is a scripting language that enables you to write faster and more powerful MediaWiki templates.

If you have questions about how to convert existing templates to Lua (or how to create new ones), we'll be holding two support sessions on IRC next week: one on Wednesday (for Oceania, Asia & America) and one on Friday (for Europe, Africa & America); see m:IRC office hours for the details. If you can't make it, you can also get help at mw:Talk:Lua scripting.

If you'd like to learn about this kind of events earlier in advance, consider becoming a Tech ambassador by subscribing to the mailing list. You will also be able to help your fellow Wikimedians have a voice in technical discussions and be notified of important decisions.

Wikidata phase 2 (infoboxes) coming to this Wikipedia[編寫]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg

Sorry for writing in English. I hope someone can translate this. If you understand German better than English you can have a look at the announcement on de:Wikipedia:Kurier.

A while ago the first phase of Wikidata was enabled on this Wikipedia. This means you are getting the language links in each article from Wikidata. It is soon time to enable the second phase of Wikidata (infoboxes) here. We have already done this on the [first 11 Wikipedias] (it, he, hu, ru, tr, uk, uz, hr, bs, sr, sh) and things are looking good. The next step is English Wikipedia. This is planned for April 8. If everything works out fine we will deploy on all remaining Wikipedias on April 10. I will update this part of the FAQ if there are any issues forcing us to change this date. I will also sent another note to this village pump once the deployment is finished.

What will happen once we have phase 2 enabled here? Once it is enabled in a few days you will be able to make use of the structured data that is available on Wikidata in your articles/infoboxes. It includes things like the symbol for a chemical element, the ISBN for a book or the top level domain of a country. (None of this will happen automatically. Someone will have to change the article or infobox template for this to happen!)

How will this work? There are two ways to access the data:

  • Use a parser function like {{#property:p169}} in the wiki text of the article on Yahoo!. This will return “Marissa Mayer” as she is the chief executive officer of the company.
  • For more complicated things you can use Lua. The documentation for this is here.

We are working on expanding the parser function so you can for example use {{#property:chief executive officer}} instead of {{#property:p169}}. The complete plan for this is here.

Where can I test this? You can already test it on test2.

Where can I find more information and ask questions? We have collected the main questions in an FAQ for this deployment. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

I want to be kept up to date about Wikidata To stay up-to-date on everything happening around Wikidata please subscribe to the newsletter that is delivered weekly to subscribed user’s talk pages.

Wikidata phase 2 (infoboxes) is here[編寫]

A while ago the first phase of Wikidata was enabled on this Wikipedia. This means you are getting the language links in each article from Wikidata. We have now enabled the second phase of Wikidata (infoboxes) here. We have already done this on the [first 11 Wikipedias] (it, he, hu, ru, tr, uk, uz, hr, bs, sr, sh) a month ago and two days ago on the English Wikipedia. Today all the remaining Wikipedias followed.

What does having phase 2 enabled here mean? You are now able to make use of the structured data that is available on Wikidata in your articles/infoboxes. It includes things like the symbol for a chemical element, the ISBN for a book or the top level domain of a country. (None of this will happen automatically. Someone will have to change the article or infobox template for this to happen!) The current state is just the beginning though. It will be extended based on feedback we get from you now.

How will this work? There are two ways to access the data:

  • Use a parser function like {{#property:p159}} in the wiki text of the article on Wikimedia Foundation. This will return “San Francisco” as that is the headquarter location of the non-profit.
  • For more complicated things you can use Lua. The documentation for this is here.

We are working on expanding the parser function so you can for example use {{#property:headquarter location}} instead of {{#property:p159}}. The complete plan for this is here.

Where can I test this? You can test it on test2 if you don't want to do it in an article here.

Where can I find more information and ask questions? We have collected the main questions in an FAQ for this deployment. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

[en] Change to section edit links[編寫]

The default position of the "edit" link in page section headers is going to change soon. The "edit" link will be positioned adjacent to the page header text rather than floating opposite it.

Section edit links will be to the immediate right of section titles, instead of on the far right. If you're an editor of one of the wikis which already implemented this change, nothing will substantially change for you; however, scripts and gadgets depending on the previous implementation of section edit links will have to be adjusted to continue working; however, nothing else should break even if they are not updated in time.

Detailed information and a timeline is available on meta.

Ideas to do this all the way to 2009 at least. It is often difficult to track which of several potential section edit links on the far right is associated with the correct section, and many readers and anonymous or new editors may even be failing to notice section edit links at all, since they read section titles, which are far away from the links.

VisualEditor and your Wikipedia[編寫]

(Please translate this message)

Greetings,

The Wikimedia Foundation will soon turn on VisualEditor for all users, all the time on your Wikipedia. Right now your Wikipedia does not have any local documents on VisualEditor, and we hope that your community can change that. To find out about how you can help with translations visit the TranslationCentral for VisualEditor and read the easy instructions on bringing information to your Wikipedia. The User Guide and the FAQ are very important to have in your language.

We want to find out as much as we can from you about VisualEditor and how it helps your Wikipedia, and having local pages is a great way to start. We also encourage you to leave feedback on Mediawiki where the community can offer ideas, opinions, and point out bugs that may still exist in the software that need to be reported to Bugzilla. If you are able to speak for the concerns of others in English on MediaWiki or locally I encourage you to help your community to be represented in this process.

If you can help translate the user interface for VisualEditor to your language, you can help with that as well. Translatewiki has open tasks for translating VisualEditor. A direct link to translate the user interface is here. You can see how we are doing with those translations here. You need an account on Translatewiki to translate. This account is free and easy to create.

If we can help your community in any way with this process, please let me know and I will do my best to assist your Wikipedia with this |exciting development. You can contact me on my meta talk page or by email. You can also contact Patrick Earley for help with translations and documents on Mediawiki. We look forward to working with you to bring the VisualEditor experience to your Wikipedia! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 2013年7月30日 (禮拜二) 19:01 (UTC)

Greetings. Starting on August 21 (tomorrow), all users with an account will be using HTTPS to access Wikimedia sites. HTTPS brings better security and improves your privacy. More information is available at m:HTTPS.

If HTTPS causes problems for you, tell us on bugzilla, on IRC (in the #wikimedia-operations channel) or on meta. If you can't use the other methods, you can also send an e-mail to https@wikimedia.org.

Notifications[編寫]

Notifications inform you of new activity that affects you -- and let you take quick action.

(This message is in English, please translate as needed)

Greetings!

Notifications will inform users about new activity that affects them on this wiki in a unified way: for example, this new tool will let you know when you have new talk page messages, edit reverts, mentions or links -- and is designed to augment (rather than replace) the watchlist. The Wikimedia Foundation's editor engagement team developed this tool (code-named 'Echo') earlier this year, to help users contribute more productively to MediaWiki projects.

We're now getting ready to bring Notifications to almost all other Wikimedia sites, and are aiming for a 22 October deployment, as outlined in this release plan. It is important that notifications is translated for all of the languages we serve.

There are three major points of translation needed to be either done or checked:

Please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions or comments about this new tool. For more information, visit this project hub and this help page. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 2013年10月4日 (禮拜五) 18:34 (UTC)

Introducting Beta Features[編寫]

(Apologies for writing in English. Please translate if necessary)

We would like to let you know about Beta Features, a new program from the Wikimedia Foundation that lets you try out new features before they are released for everyone.

Think of it as a digital laboratory where community members can preview upcoming software and give feedback to help improve them. This special preference page lets designers and engineers experiment with new features on a broad scale, but in a way that's not disruptive.

Beta Features is now ready for testing on MediaWiki.org. It will also be released on Wikimedia Commons and MetaWiki this Thursday, 7 November. Based on test results, the plan is to release it on all wikis worldwide on 21 November, 2013.

Here are the first features you can test this week:

Would you like to try out Beta Features now? After you log in on MediaWiki.org, a small 'Beta' link will appear next to your 'Preferences'. Click on it to see features you can test, check the ones you want, then click 'Save'. Learn more on the Beta Features page.

After you've tested Beta Features, please let the developers know what you think on this discussion page -- or report any bugs here on Bugzilla. You're also welcome to join this IRC office hours chat on Friday, 8 November at 18:30 UTC.

Beta Features was developed by the Wikimedia Foundation's Design, Multimedia and VisualEditor teams. Along with other developers, they will be adding new features to this experimental program every few weeks. They are very grateful to all the community members who helped create this project — and look forward to many more productive collaborations in the future.

Enjoy, and don't forget to let developers know what you think! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 2013年11月5日 (禮拜二) 19:56 (UTC)

Call for comments on draft trademark policy[編寫]

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

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) 2014年1月16日 (禮拜四) 06:47 (UTC)

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

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[編寫]

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 維基百科 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[編寫]

Hello all, in response to some community comments in the discussion on the amendment to the Terms of Use on undisclosed paid editing, we have prepared two optional changes. 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[編寫]

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:

Media Viewer[編寫]


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) 2014年5月23日 (禮拜五) 21:29 (UTC)

Using only UploadWizard for uploads[編寫]

Wikimedia Commons logo

Hello! Sorry for writing in English. It was noted that on this wiki upload is not fully functional for users, who will experience a very difficult and/or illegal uploading. In fact, the licenses/copyright tags dropdown is empty, making it hard or impossible to comply with copyright requirements during upload itself.

Presumably, you don't have interest nor energies to have hundreds templates with the now required HTML, even less a local EDP. I propose to have

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.

All this will get done around 2014-07-03.

  1. If you disagree with the proposal, just remove your wiki from the list. Remember also to create MediaWiki:Licenses locally with any content (see a simple example), or uploads will be soon disabled anyway by MediaWiki itself (starting in version 1.24wmf11).
  2. To make the UploadWizard even better, please tell your experience and ideas on commons:Commons:Upload Wizard feedback.

Media Viewer is now live on this wiki[編寫]


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) 2014年6月19日 (禮拜四) 21:54 (UTC)

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decisions[編寫]

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.

Process ideas for software development[編寫]

’’My apologies for writing in English.’’

Hello,

I am notifying you that a brainstorming session has been started on Meta to help the Wikimedia Foundation increase and better affect community participation in software development across all wiki projects. Basically, how can you be more involved in helping to create features on Wikimedia projects? We are inviting all interested users to voice their ideas on how communities can be more involved and informed in the product development process at the Wikimedia Foundation. It would be very appreciated if you could translate this message to help inform your local communities as well.

I and the rest of my team welcome you to participate. We hope to see you on Meta.

Meta RfCs on two new global groups[編寫]

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[編寫]

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

重要信息:管理员活跃审核[編寫]

大家好。一项关于移除“高级权限”(管理员、行政员等)的新方针已于2013年获得全域社群的共识。根据此方针,监管员正在所有维基媒体基金会控制,但没有不活跃方针的wiki审核管理员的活跃程度。根据我们的了解,阁下所在的wiki并没有移除不活跃账户的“高级权限”的正式程序。这意味着,监管员将根据新的管理员活跃审核方针来负责此事。

我们现已判定,下列用户符合非活跃标准(超过2年既无编辑又无日志操作):

  1. Vipuser(管理员)

这些用户将很快收到通知,告知他们如果希望保留部分或全部权限,应开启社群讨论。如果没有回应,那么他们的高级权限将会被监管员移除。

然而,如果您所在的社群希望建立自己的活跃审核程序以取代全域审核,或对这些不活跃的权限持有者做出其他决定,或已经有相关方针但我们并不知晓,那么请在元维基通知监管员,这样我们将不会对您的wiki做出权限审核。谢谢, Rschen7754 2015年1月13日 (禮拜二) 04:11 (UTC)

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

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

Wikimedia Foundation logo - vertical (2012-2016).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 (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,
The Pywikibot development team, 19:30, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

Please join the 2nd edition of the VisualEditor Translathon[編寫]

VisualEditor-logo-pacifico.svg

Hello!

I'm pleased to announce the 2nd edition of the VisualEditor Translathon.

It is a translation rally, focused on interface messages and help pages related to VisualEditor. In order to participate, you need to sign up on the Translathon page on TranslateWiki.

The top 3 contributors will each win a Wikipedia t-shirt of their choice from the Wikipedia store[1]. Translations made between July 15th and July 19th (CDT time zone) qualify[2].

If you are at Wikimania Mexico this year, you are also welcome to join a related sprint during the hackathon in Workplace 1 - Don Américo, Thursday 16 July at 4pm (CDT) at the conference venue, so you can meet other fellow translators and get support if you need some.

Interface messages have the priority. You will need to create an account at translatewiki.net in order to work on them, if you don't have one. It is recommended to create the account ASAP, so that it can be confirmed in time.

You can also help translate documentation pages about VisualEditor on mediawiki.org. You can use your Wikipedia account to work there.

You will find instructions, links and other details on the Translathon page.

Thanks for your attention, and happy translating!
Elitre (WMF) 2015年7月13日 (禮拜一) 21:00 (UTC)

  1. You can choose between any short-sleeve shirt, or other items for the same value.
  2. This means both new translations, and updates for messages in the "Outdated" tab of the translation interface.

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

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 (對話) 2015年7月24日 (禮拜五) 05:07 (UTC)

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

(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 many projects. Your project is one of the next ones. We will roll out this feature here on August 12.

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.

A note of caution: Please be careful with how many items you use for a single page. If it is too many pages, loading might get slow. We will have to see how the feature behaves in production to see where we need to tweak and how.

How to use it, once it is enabled:

Hello! Wikimania 2016 scholarships will soon be open; by the end of the week we'll form the committee and we need your help, see Scholarship committee for details.

If you want to carefully review nearly a thousand applications in January, you might be a perfect committee member. Otherwise, you can volunteer as "ambassador": you will observe all the committee activities, ensure that people from your language or project manage to apply for a scholarship, translate scholarship applications written in your language to English and so on. Ambassadors are allowed to ask for a scholarship, unlike committee members.

Your input requested on the proposed #FreeBassel banner campaign[編寫]

This is a message regarding the proposed 2015 Free Bassel banner. Translations are available.

Hi everyone,

This is to inform all Wikimedia contributors that a straw poll seeking your involvement has just been started on Meta-Wiki.

As some of your might be aware, a small group of Wikimedia volunteers have proposed a banner campaign informing Wikipedia readers about the urgent situation of our fellow Wikipedian, open source software developer and Creative Commons activist, Bassel Khartabil. An exemplary banner and an explanatory page have now been prepared, and translated into about half a dozen languages by volunteer translators.

We are seeking your involvement to decide if the global Wikimedia community approves starting a banner campaign asking Wikipedia readers to call on the Syrian government to release Bassel from prison. We understand that a campaign like this would be unprecedented in Wikipedia's history, which is why we're seeking the widest possible consensus among the community.

Given Bassel's urgent situation and the resulting tight schedule, we ask everyone to get involved with the poll and the discussion to the widest possible extent, and to promote it among your communities as soon as possible.

(Apologies for writing in English; please kindly translate this message into your own language.)

Thank you for your participation!

Get involved in Wikipedia 15![編寫]

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

International-Space-Station wordmark blue.svg

As many of you know, January 15 is Wikipedia’s 15th Birthday!

People around the world are getting involved in the celebration and have started adding their events on Meta Page. While we are celebrating Wikipedia's birthday, we hope that all projects and affiliates will be able to utilize this celebration to raise awareness of our community's efforts.

Haven’t started planning? Don’t worry, there’s lots of ways to get involved. Here are some ideas:

Everything is linked on the Wikipedia 15 Meta page. You’ll find a set of ten data visualization works that you can show at your events, and a list of all the Wikipedia 15 logos that community members have already designed.

If you have any questions, please contact Zachary McCune or Joe Sutherland.

Thanks and Happy nearly Wikipedia 15!
