Caratteri speciali & VisualEditor[modifiché la sorgiss]

Ciao a tutti, per chi ancora non lo sapesse nella seconda metà del mese dovrebbe essere attivato di default anche su questa wiki "VisualEditor", il nuovo editor visuale di Wikipedia, che potete già vedere in funzione per esempio su en.wiki (o anche su questa wiki se lo attivate dalle vostre preferenze). VisualEditor affiancherà l'editor classico che abbiamo usato finora, VisualEditor però manca dei caratteri speciali, il che per wiki come questa è un bel problema, problema che però può essere risolto grazie ad un'altra estensione di recente attivata su tutte le wiki: Universal Language Selector. Su vec.wiki siamo già a buon punto per quanto riguarda la soluzione al problema mediante quest'estensione dato che ci resta solo l'ultimo passaggio (ovvero l'effettiva richiesta, che non abbiamo ben capito se va fatta su Bugzilla o altrove... abbiamo chiesto info a chi dovrebbe saperlo ed appena avremo una risposta aggiornerò questa discussione). Nel frattempo invito anche la vostra comunità a discutere le combinazioni di carattere da usare in vista della preparazione del codice; ovviamente sempre se siete interessati ad usare questo semplice metodo che risolve il problema della mancanza dei suddetti caratteri sul nuovo editor ma che facilita la vita anche a chi continuerà ad usare il vecchio editor.
Per prima cosa direi che serve un elenco dei caratteri che non trovate sulla tastiera ma che sono essenziali per scrivere nella vostra lingua. Poi una volta che c'è l'elenco si discute la miglior combinazione di caratteri, per es. su vec.wiki abbiamo deciso che per ottenere đ si scriverà dh (funziona così, tu digiti la combinazione, in questo caso dh ed il sistema te lo convertirà automaticamente nel carattere scelto, nel nostro caso đ... il che è molto più pratico che andare a pescare ogni volta il carattere dai "Caratteri speciali"). Una volta definita la combinazione si può preparare il codice (basterà modificare ad hoc quello preparato per vec.wiki).--GatoSelvadego (ciaciarade) 10:32, 6 Aos 2013 (UTC)

Ij caràter speciaj dël piemontèis comun a son cost: À, È, É, Ì, Ò, Ó, ó, Ù, Ë, ë.

Per la dieresi direi che la soluzione ideale è quella adottata dalle wiki nord europee, ovvero far precedere la vocale da :. Quindi :e per ë, :E per Ë e così via. Per gli accenti acuti si potrebbe usare la virgola al posto dei due punti, quindi ,o per ó. Ĝ si potrebbe farla ^G oppure usare un'altra combinazione, idem per L̂ e R̂.--GatoSelvadego (ciaciarade) 09:20, 26 Aos 2013 (UTC)
Riprendo questa vecchia discussione, sulle wiki vec stiamo usando da qualche giorno il nuovo e comodo modo di inserimento dei caratteri speciali. Se siete interessati ad usare una soluzione simile anche qui nella vostra wiki (e potenzialmente anche fuori dalla Wiki dato che c'è un'estensione di Firefox e Chrome che consente di usarla anche nella normale navigazione) fatemi un fischio che sono a vostra disposizione per la preparazione del codice e la richiesta su GitHub. Per prima cosa dovreste dirmi se quanto ho proposto sopra può andare...--GatoSelvadego (ciaciarade) 16:29, 25 Fër 2014 (UTC)

Ciao, e grazie per la disponibilità. La mia impressione è che qui non ce ne sia tanto bisogno, in parte perchè si può mappare la tastiera alla versione piemontese, in parte perchè si può usare quella québécoise, che ha tutti i caratteri necessari. Però questa è solo la mia opinione, se qualcuno ne sente la necessità o l'utilità, grazie in anticipo per il tuo aiuto. Borichèt (ciaciarade) 12:09, 26 Fër 2014 (UTC)

Për mi la propòsta ëd Gatoselvadego a va bin, i dirìa antlora:

@Borichèt: Non so però se tutti sono in grado di mapparsi la tastiera. E comunque può anche capitare di ritrovarsi a fare una modifica da un computer diverso, tipo da una postazione pubblica. @Dragonòt: Vero c'è pure il problema degli accenti gravi nelle maiuscole per chi usa Windows (me l'hanno fatto notare anche su eml.wiki, da utente Linux non me ne ero accorto dato che mi basta usare il CAPS LOCK). Magari si potrebbe usare \.--GatoSelvadego (ciaciarade) 22:56, 26 Fër 2014 (UTC)

No, il ' è meglio non usarlo perché poi è un casino con grassetto, corsivo etc... PS: Ce l'avete un template per cassettare? Per ora ho messo il codice qui, ma preferirei metterlo in questa discussione (dato che poi quando farò la richiesta metterò il link a questa discussione).--GatoSelvadego (ciaciarade) 09:11, 27 Fër 2014 (UTC)

"stamp për cassetté": Semplicemente, dato che dovrei riportare il codice qui, mi chiedevo se c'era un modo per riportarlo senza allungare troppo la pagina tipo usando una specie di cassetto che cliccando si apre e rivela il testo ma di norma resta chiuso (in pratica quello che fanno i template tipo questo). Per quanto riguarda l'ordine: si, posso ancora cambiare tutto fino a che non faccio la richiesta su GitHub, ma non vedo il senso di mettere un ordine. Quel codice non si vede da nessuna parte, semplicemente abbina ciò che scrivi a ciò che vorresti comparisse scritto. Dunque mettere un ordine o un altro è indifferente. Sicuramente nella tabella che spiega l'uso li metterò con quell'ordine, ma nel codice possono stare anche così. Comunque se preferite cambio lo stesso.--GatoSelvadego (ciaciarade) 14:02, 28 Fër 2014 (UTC)
OK, tnx. Për l'hidden, i chërdo pròpi ch'i l'abio gnente, Toislex ant l'Intrada a l'ha amplementaje un për un. --Dragonòt (ciaciarade) 21:04, 28 Fër 2014 (UTC)

Ok, mi son creato il template per l'occasione in una mia sandbox. Se eventualmente vi interessa potete verificare la traduzione dei parametri e poi spostarlo nel namespace stamp. Però per farlo funzionare servirebbero alcune classi sul JS/CSS che vedo non avete (NavFrame, NavHead e NavContent)... Tornando al codice per il metodo di input: se non ci sono altre questioni appena posso procedo con la richiesta.--GatoSelvadego (ciaciarade) 11:02, 1 mar 2014 (UTC)

Fatta la richiesta su GitHub.--GatoSelvadego (ciaciarade) 10:17, 4 mar 2014 (UTC)

HTTPS for users with an account[modifiché la sorgiss]

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.

Checklist VisualEditor[modifiché la sorgiss]

Dunque, passo per fare il punto della situazione. Spero sia cosa gradita. --Elitre (WMF) (ciaciarade) 09:16, 4 Stè 2013 (UTC)

Forse faccio ancora in tempo a inserirvi nella lista delle wiki che vengono attivate al prossimo giro (tra quasi 3 settimane), se nel frattempo pensate di poter lavorare a:

  • Documentazione, abbastanza importante anche se ci si può appoggiare nel frattempo alle pagine italiane: la pagina Wikipedia:Editor_visual esiste già, bene;
    • valutate se creare anche il manuale, come it:Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Manuale: magari potreste riutilizzare quegli screenshot, ma forse il testo è da tradurre.
    • per i feedback, se non volete creare una pagina da mantenere voi in locale, potete reindirizzarli sulla pagina di it.wiki apposita, ma in questo caso fate in modo che sia facilmente raggiungibile dalle pagine di VE qui linkandola dove necessario;
    • consiglio di iscrivere voi o il progetto al bollettino di VE in italiano, o a quelli in inglese, per avere degli aggiornamenti ogni tanto.
  • Traduzione dell'interfaccia, prioritaria: anche qui, mi pare che abbiate concluso, [1].
  • TemplateData, abbastanza prioritario: è necessario iniziare ad aggiornare alcuni template perché rendano al meglio con VE. La lista dei più utilizzati qui è questa. Per sapere cosa c'è da fare vedere qui (se avete la pazienza di leggere tutto, troverete anche i link a metodi semiautomatici per ottenere il codice che vi serve). Se si escludono i template di navigazione, quelli senza parametri, quelli usati solo da altri template, quelli che non si usano sulle voci o nelle pagine degli utenti, e quelli che secondo voi non è importante aggiornare subito, non ne dovrebbero rimanere molti. Vedere ad es. per it.wiki la lista nel cassetto. Anche perché va aggiornato solo il template, non ogni voce che lo contiene, e inoltre è un lavoro che si può fare anche in seguito.
  • Testare VisualEditor e controllare gli edit, prioritario: VE può essere attivato, per chi non l'ha ancora fatto, tramite la pagina delle "Preferenze", nella sezione "Casella di modifica", selezionando l'opzione "Abilita VisualEditor (solo nei namespace principale e Utente)". Vi consiglio di iniziare a usarlo spesso almeno per modifiche "minori", ad es. correggere errori di battitura, aggiungere delle categorie ecc. Tenere quindi sotto controllo il log delle modifiche per riscontrare eventuali bug da segnalare.
  • Verificare la questione dei caratteri speciali: ricontattare GatoSelvadego per aggiornamenti sui progressi della questione linguistica :)
      • Fatemi sapere il prima possibile se posso dare l'ok o meno, grazie.

Ciao. Personalmente non credo che nei prossimi giorni avrò molto tempo per dedicarmi a questa lista di cose. Di conseguenza, per me non c'è nessuna fretta di partire. Ma neanche nessun impedimento: se è vero che VE è fatto per rendere più intuitive le modifiche, non credo ci sia bisogno di voluminosi manuali per imparare a usarlo! Insomma, fai pure partire quando vuoi. Borichèt (ciaciarade) 13:14, 4 Stè 2013 (UTC)

Notifications[modifiché la sorgiss]

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) 19:06, 4 Otó 2013 (UTC)

Introducting Beta Features[modifiché la sorgiss]

(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) 20:29, 5 nov 2013 (UTC)

VisualEditor in arrivo su questa wiki[modifiché la sorgiss]

Ciao a tutti. VisualEditor arriverà su questo progetto il 2 dicembre 2013. Come anticipato nei mesi scorsi, VisualEditor è un software in fase di sviluppo che permette agli utenti di modificare le pagine di questo sito senza imparare prima la “wikisintassi” (ad es. [[ e ]] per linkare a un’altra pagina). E’ già disponibile e attivo su molte altre Wikipedia (ad es., oltre a quella in italiano, quelle in napolitano, siciliano e veneto), e in realtà potreste già averlo testato anche qui abilitandolo dalle Preferenze come suggeritovi in passato. Per ulteriori informazioni si può leggere comunque questa pagina.

Una volta che il software sarà attivato potrete scegliere se usare VE o l’editor tradizionale. Cliccando su “Modifica” sarà lanciato VisualEditor; per usare l’editor classico invece basterà premere “Modifica sorgente”. E’ a vostra disposizione un manuale apposito per imparare a usare correttamente VE.

Ci auguriamo che il software sia utile a editor attuali e futuri di questa comunità, e ci servirebbe proprio il vostro aiuto per migliorarlo! Per favore, comunicateci eventuali difficoltà riscontrate durante l’utilizzo. Se ve la sentite, potete riportare il problema su Bugzilla usando la nuova procedura guidata semplificata. Altrimenti, descrivetelo pure sulla pagina centrale di feedback su MediaWiki.org. Se notate malfunzionamenti particolarmente gravi sul vostro progetto, potete invece segnalarceli direttamente: potete lasciare un messaggio sulla mia pagina di discussione oppure, se si tratta di un’emergenza (ad es. un bug che di punto in bianco inizia a corrompere tutte le voci quando queste vengono modificate con VisualEditor), potete scrivere a James Forrester, il Product Manager, all’indirizzo jforrester@wikimedia.org.

Se ne avete la possibilità, per favore testate il nuovo editor sin d’ora. Questo ci permetterà di venire a conoscenza di problemi specifici di questa Wikipedia prima del lancio. Per abilitarlo, basta andare sulle proprie “Preferenze” → “Casella di Modifica” → “Abilita VisualEditor”.

Apprezzeremmo molto il vostro aiuto con le traduzioni di pagine relative a VisualEditor (qui e/o su MediaWiki.org) e dell’interfaccia utente. Per dettagli si può consultare la VisualEditor TranslationCentral. Per tradurre l’interfaccia, basta creare un account su TranslateWiki (se non se ne possiede già uno). Una volta che la richiesta dell’account viene approvata, non resta che selezionare la propria lingua da questa lista. Apparirà così una lista di messaggi: da una parte ci sarà l’originale in inglese, dall’altra l’opzione per modificare, che aprirà una finestra nella quale lavorare. Infine, un accenno alla guida dell’utente, un altro documento importante. Per tradurlo, si può semplicemente cliccare su questa pagina, e selezionare “Traduci questa pagina”. La vostra lingua sarà raggiungibile dal menù a tendina sulla destra. Se volete dare una mano con le traduzioni e discuterne, lasciatemi pure un messaggio nella mia pagina utente.

Grazie, e buon editing a tutti! --Elitre (WMF) (ciaciarade) 11:26, 16 nov 2013 (UTC)

PS: Rispetto a quest’estate c’è peraltro la grossa novità rappresentata dalla possibilità di passare direttamente da VE all’editor tradizionale (senza cioè dover salvare prima); il che permetterà non solo di apportare tutte le modifiche desiderate e di poter avvistare e correggere più facilmente eventuali errori, ma fungerà anche da escamotage temporaneo per quanto riguarda eventuali problemi con caratteri da inserire non presenti sulla vostra tastiera, perché terminando l'edit con l'editor tradizionale potrete selezionarli ad es. dalla tendina "Special Characters" in alto. Se invece la mia valutazione non fosse corretta, e in generale per segnalare problematicità che devono essere risolte prima dell'arrivo di VE, vi rinnovo l'invito a contattarmi tempestivamente in pagina di discussione. Grazie!

Aggiornamento: Riguardo al lavoro da fare: per l'interfaccia siete al 100% di messaggi tradotti, complimenti! Per il resto delle pagine che potrebbero essere utili alla vostra comunità, trovate l'elenco di quelle da creare qui (noto che a parte quella principale, le altre sono ancora mancanti, pertanto vi esorto a considerarne la creazione in tempo per lunedì). Se non siete a vostro agio con il sistema di traduzione "a fronte" su Mediawiki, sentitevi liberi di crearle allora qui sopra (meglio di niente!). Grazie a tutti, --Elitre (WMF) (ciaciarade) 16:46, 28 nov 2013 (UTC)

Richiesta di commenti: strumento per l'aggiunta di caratteri speciali in VisualEditor[modifiché la sorgiss]

Ciao, è stato appena aggiunto uno strumento per l'aggiunta di caratteri speciali quando si edita con VisualEditor. Se avete tempo, per favore, provatelo e fate sapere agli sviluppatori cosa ne pensate.

Screenshot of TranslateWiki interface
Il menù a tendina Anserì nella barra di VE vi permetterà di accedere tramite l'opzione 'Caràter ëspecial'
Screenshot of Special Characters tool
Ecco il nuovo selettore. I vostri commenti in merito sono particolarmente graditi.

Gli sviluppatori apprezzerebbero molto se lasciaste un messaggio con il vostro feedback e la/e lingua/e usata/e per il test in questo thread su Mediawiki.org. E' davvero importante sentire i pareri di quante più persone possibile. Grazie! --Elitre (WMF) (ciaciarade) 18:54, 24 gen 2014 (UTC)

Ciao, nel riportare la vostra attenzione sull'argomento, vi propongo alcune domande specifiche del Product Manager di VisualEditor.
  • Dovremmo limitarci a mostrare l'intero set di caratteri presenti nello strumento "Caratteri speciali" nella toolbar dell'editor di wikitesto?
    • Se sì, non sarà eccessivo? Come farete a trovare il carattere che cercate? Cosa dovremmo fare per gli utenti che non hanno abbastanza spazio per visualizzare tutto?
  • Dovrebbe esserci una sezione "prioritaria" per quella dozzina o poco più di caratteri più usati regolarmente? Va bene un click in più per andare oltre un set così limitato?
    • Come dovrebbero essere suddivise le sezioni? Dovrebbero essere annidate? Ordinate?
    • Come si dovrebbe poter navigare tra le sezioni? Dovrebbe esserci un menù a scomparsa? Un menù annidato (cioè, con sotto-menù)?
  • Lo strumento dovrebbe essere disponibile permanentemente finché non viene nascosto? Dovrebbe apparire vicino al mouse? Dovrebbe sparire dopo ogni selezione, o 10 secondi dopo una selezione se non ne avvengono altre nel frattempo?
  • La toolbar ha già troppe opzioni - come la semplifichiamo?
Grazie a tutti per il vostro impegno nel testare VE! Se l'inglese è il vostro pane quotidiano, rispondete direttamente su mw:VisualEditor/Feedback; altrimenti fatevi sentire qui. A presto, --Elitre (WMF) (ciaciarade) 17:08, 12 Fër 2014 (UTC)

Office hours in arrivo[modifiché la sorgiss]

Ciao, anche questo mese sono previsti degli "orari di ricevimento" :) durante i quali è possibile chiacchierare di VisualEditor insieme al suo Product Manager, James Forrester, e altri membri del team. Il primo è previsto per sabato 15 alle 17 UTC, ossia le 18 italiane, mentre il successivo si terrà poche ore dopo (vedere Meta per dettagli e link alla chat). Chi non si trova a suo agio con l'inglese o non può partecipare può lasciare eventuali domande qui. Di solito l'evento è abbastanza affollato e si tende a dare la precedenza ai partecipanti, anche perché così è senz'altro più semplice per James e altri ottenere a loro volta dei chiarimenti, ma in genere si riesce a far pervenire a ognuno una risposta in qualche modo, fosse anche in privato. Il registro della chat è pubblico e visibile a partire da poche ore dopo che questa si è tenuta. Grazie per l'attenzione, --Elitre (WMF) (ciaciarade) 13:10, 10 Fër 2014 (UTC)

Changes to the default site typography coming soon[modifiché la sorgiss]

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.

Importanti aggiornamenti relativi a VisualEditor[modifiché la sorgiss]

La newsletter globale (in inglese) fornisce dettagli meno tecnici e concentra l'attenzione sulle novità che possono interessare maggiormente gli utenti dei progetti WMF.
  • Ciao a tutti. Potete partecipare alla prossima office hour con James Forrester, Product Manager di VisualEditor, collegandovi a IRC sabato 19 aprile alle 20:00 UTC per un dibattito sullo stato attuale dell'editor e sugli sviluppi previsti nell'immediato futuro.
  • VE è cambiato molto recentemente; se non ne eravate al corrente, significa che dovete proprio iscrivervi alle newsletter relative! Vedere qui per quella in italiano; c'è da dire però che quella in inglese viene pubblicata più spesso e soprattutto potete riceverla su questo sito oppure su Meta.
  • Lo sapevate? Ci sono solo due pagine da consultare per controllare a che punto stanno le traduzioni nella vostra lingua relative a VisualEditor. Siete nella zona verde (bene!) o in quella rossa (male!)? Scopritelo subito, e poi cliccate su codice e nome della lingua per aggiornare le traduzioni!

Importanti annunci relativi a VisualEditor[modifiché la sorgiss]

VisualEditor-logo.svg
Sentitevi liberi di tradurre questo messaggio nella lingua di questa wiki, se lo ritenete opportuno. Grazie!

Ciao a tutti. Dal momento che la squadra dei Community Liaison di cui faccio parte viene reclutata su sempre più wiki e per altri software, vi annuncio alcuni cambiamenti in merito al nostro modo di relazionarci con le Wikipedia con le quali abbiamo tenuto i contatti sinora.

  • Stiamo incoraggiando a lasciare commenti sulla pagina relativa di mediawiki.org, perché è quella che da ora in poi riceverà in modo centralizzato i feedback da pressoché tutte le Wikipedia, e che quindi l'intera squadra monitorerà per questo motivo. Apprezziamo comunque l'assistenza dei membri di questa comunità, e cogliamo l'occasione per ringraziare i più attivi per il prezioso supporto che sicuramente non ci faranno mancare anche in futuro! Se vedete richieste relative a VisualEditor su questa Wikipedia alle quali potete rispondere direttamente, o se volete invece tradurle in inglese e riportarle su mediawiki.org, siete davvero i benvenuti. Ad ogni modo, per agevolarvi ulteriormente anche sul piano linguistico, vi ricordo che avete comunque la possibilità di pormi direttamente i vostri quesiti su Wikipedia in italiano, in alternativa.
  • Abbiamo esteso a tutte le Wikipedia la possibilità di ricevere la "newsletter globale", solitamente pubblicata su en.wiki. Iscrivetevi su Meta; questo bollettino includerà gli aggiornamenti e gli annunci più importanti, così vedrete meno messaggi da parte nostra su questa pagina. Pubblicheremo qui il prossimo numero; per ricevere i successivi invece aggiungete questa pagina o la vostra pagina di discussione utente (o entrambe!) alla lista dei destinatari. Potrete poi valutare se tradurre la comunicazione nella vostra lingua in modo che raggiunga ancora più persone. Anche in questo caso, se preferite potete anche iscrivervi al bollettino di VE per it.wiki, pubblicato meno frequentemente.
  • Vi invitiamo a discutere dei recenti sviluppi e dei piani per il futuro di VisualEditor durante la prossima office hour di lunedì 19 maggio (ore 20 italiane) insieme a James Forrester (Product Manager). Se non potete partecipare ma vorreste comunque fargli una domanda potete lasciarla su mediawiki.org o sulla mia pagina di discussione entro il giorno prima e cercherò di ottenere una risposta. Contiamo di proseguire con queste sessioni mensili finché la comunità dimostrerà interesse.
  • Vi ricordiamo infine che i modi per raggiungere i Community Liaison sono elencati sulle nostre rispettive pagine utente, e che un messaggio in pagina di discussione utente è sempre un ottimo modo per richiamare la nostra attenzione o semplicemente tenersi in contatto.

VisualEditor global newsletter—May 2014[modifiché la sorgiss]

This is a one-time mailing to projects that may need this information. Future newsletters will be available as opt-in only. To receive future newsletters (about one per month), please add your page to the subscribers' list at m:VisualEditor/Newsletter. You're welcome to translate to your language.


Since the last newsletter, the VisualEditor team has mostly worked on the new citation tool, improving performance, reducing technical debt, and other infrastructure needs.

VisualEditor-logo.svg

Did you know?

VisualEditor - Editing References - Cite Pulldown.png

The cite menu offers quick access to up to five citation templates.  If your wiki has enabled the "⧼visualeditor-toolbar-cite-label⧽" menu, press "⧼visualeditor-toolbar-cite-label⧽" and select the appropriate template from the menu.

Existing citations that use these templates can be edited either using the "⧼visualeditor-toolbar-cite-label⧽" tool or by selecting the reference and choosing the "Arferiment" item in the "Anserì" menu.

Read the user guide for more information.

The biggest change in the last few weeks is the new citation template menu, labeled "⧼visualeditor-toolbar-cite-label⧽". The new citation menu offers a locally configurable list of citation templates on the main toolbar. It adds or opens references using the simplified template dialog that was deployed last month. This tool is in addition to the "Arferiment" item in the "Anserì" menu, and it is not displayed unless it has been configured for that wiki. To enable this tool on your wiki, see the instructions at VisualEditor/Citation tool.

Eventually, the VisualEditor team plans to add autofill features for these citations. When this long-awaited feature is created, you could add an ISBN, URL, DOI or other identifier to the citation tool, and VisualEditor would automatically fill in as much information for that source as possible. The concept drawings can be seen at mw:VisualEditor/Design/Reference Dialog, and your ideas about making referencing quick and easy are still wanted.

  • There is a new Beta Feature for setting content language and direction.  This allows editors who have opted in to use the "Lenga" tool in the "Anserì" menu to add HTML span tags that label text with the language and as being left-to-right (LTR) or right-to-left (RTL), like this:  <span lang="en" dir="ltr">English</span>. This tool is most useful for pages whose text combines multiple languages with different directions, common on Right-to-Left wikis.
  • The tool for editing mathematics formulae in VisualEditor has been slightly updated and is now available to all users, as the "⧼math-visualeditor-mwmathinspector-title⧽" item in the "Anserì" menu. It uses LaTeX like in the wikitext editor.
  • The layout of template dialogs has been changed, putting the label above the field.  Parameters are now called "fields", to avoid a technical term that many editors are unfamiliar with.
  • TemplateData has been expanded:  You can now add "suggested" parameters in TemplateData, and VisualEditor will display them in the template dialogs like required ones.  "Suggested" is recommended for parameters that are commonly used, but not actually required to make the template work.  There is also a new type for TemplateData parameters: wiki-file-name, for file names.  The template tool can now tell you if a parameter is marked as being obsolete.
  • Some templates that previously displayed strangely due to absolute CSS positioning hacks should now display correctly.
  • Several messages have changed: The notices shown when you save a page have been merged into those used in the wikitext editor, for consistency.  The message shown when you "⧼visualeditor-toolbar-cancel⧽" out of an edit is clearer. The beta dialog notice, which is shown the first time you open VisualEditor, will be hidden for logged-in users via a user preference rather than a cookie.  As a result of this change, the beta notice will show up one last time for all logged-in users on their next VisualEditor use after Thursday's upgrade.
  • Adding a category that is a redirect to another category prompts you to add the target category instead of the redirect.
  • In the "Mojen" dialog, it is no longer possible to set a redundant border for thumbnail and framed images.
  • There is a new Template Documentation Editor for TemplateData.  You can test it by editing a documentation subpage (not a template page) at Mediawiki.org: edit mw:Template:Sandbox/doc, and then click "Manage template documentation" above the wikitext edit box.  If your community would like to use this TemplateData editor at your project, please contact product manager James Forrester or file an enhancement request in Bugzilla.
  • There have been multiple small changes to the appearance:  External links are shown in the same light blue color as in MediaWiki.  This is a lighter shade of blue than the internal links.  The styling of the "Stil dël test" (character formatting) drop-down menu has been synchronized with the recent font changes to the Vector skin.  VisualEditor dialogs, such as the "Argistré la pàgina" dialog, now use a "loading" animation of moving lines, rather than animated GIF images.  Other changes were made to the appearance upon opening a page in VisualEditor which should make the transition between reading and editing be smoother.
  • The developers merged in many minor fixes and improvements to MediaWiki interface integration (e.g., edit notices), and made VisualEditor handle Education Program pages better.
  • At the request of the community, VisualEditor has been deployed to Commons as an opt-in. It is currently available by default for 161 Wikipedia language editions and by opt-in through Beta Features at all others, as well as on several non-Wikipedia sites.

Looking ahead:  The toolbar from the PageTriage extension will no longer be visible inside VisualEditor. More buttons and icons will be accessible from the keyboard.  The "Scurse për la tastadura" link will be moved out of the "Opzioni pagina" menu, into the "Agiut" menu. Support for upright image sizes (preferred for accessibility) and inline images is being developed. You will be able to see the Table of Contents while editing. Looking further out, the developers are also working on support for viewing and editing hidden HTML comments. VisualEditor will be available to all users on mobile devices and tablet computers. It will be possible to upload images to Commons from inside VisualEditor.

If you have questions or suggestions for future improvements, or if you encounter problems, please let everyone know by posting a note at mw:VisualEditor/Feedback or by joining the office hours on Thursday, 19 June 2014 at 10:00 UTC. If you'd like to get this newsletter on your own page (about once a month), please subscribe at w:en:Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Newsletter for English Wikipedia only or at Meta for any project. Thank you! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 17:39, 22 maj 2014 (UTC)

Media Viewer[modifiché la sorgiss]


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) 21:29, 23 maj 2014 (UTC)

Using only UploadWizard for uploads[modifiché la sorgiss]

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[modifiché la sorgiss]


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) 21:54, 19 giu 2014 (UTC)

IMPORTANTE: revisione dell'attività dell'amministratore[modifiché la sorgiss]

Salve. Recentemente la comunità globale ha adottato un nuovo regolamento riguardante la rimozione di "diritti avanzati" (amministratori, burocrati, ecc), della cui discussione la tua comunità aveva ricevuto notizia. Secondo queste regole, gli stewards stanno rivedendo le attività degli amministratori nelle wiki più piccole. Per quello che sappiamo, la tua wiki non ha un procedimento formale per togliere i "diritti avanzati" dagli account inattivi. Questo significa che gli stewards si occuperanno di questo aspetto secondo le nuove regole dell'attività di amministratore che si applicano qui.

Abbiamo determinato che i seguenti utenti rispondono ai criteri di inattività (assenza di contributi e azioni di registro per più di due anni):

  1. Bèrto 'd Sèra (burocrate, amministratore)
  2. Cireseu (amministratore)
  3. Duvilar (amministratore)
  4. Ël ciard (amministratore)
  5. Gian- (amministratore)
  6. Lissànder (amministratore)
  7. Nandorum (amministratore)

Questi utenti riceveranno presto una notifica, che chiederà loro di iniziare una discussione comunitaria se vogliono conservare i loro diritti o alcuni di essi. Se gli utenti non risponderanno, i loro diritti avanzati saranno rimossi dagli steward.

Tuttavia, se la tua comunità vorrebbe creare un proprio regolamento in materia rimpiazzando quello globale, prendere un'altra decisione riguardo a questi titolari inattivi di diritti o ha già un regolamento di cui non eravamo a conoscenza, per favore informa gli steward su Meta-Wiki e sapremo di non dover procedere con la revisione dei diritti sulla tua wiki. Grazie, Rschen7754 05:55, 25 Luj 2014 (UTC)

Updates related to VisualEditor[modifiché la sorgiss]

Please help translate this message in your language. Thanks :)

Hi, everybody. This is a reminder that we invite you to discuss VisualEditor's recent development and plans ahead during the next office hours with James Forrester (Product Manager):

If you are not able to attend but have a question for James, you can leave your question at mediawiki.org or on my talk page by the day before, and I will try to get a response. We plan to continue these monthly sessions as long as there is community interest, and to announce them through the VisualEditor global newsletter as well (please subscribe your talk page there to get the latest news about the software).

Most of the VisualEditor team will be at Wikimania in London in August! You'll be able to meet the developers during the Hackaton or at the following sessions:

WMF community liaisons will share a booth with community advocates at the Community Village and look forward to talking to you there. Thanks for your attention! --User:Elitre (WMF) 16:02, 31 Luj 2014 (UTC)

VisualEditor global newsletter—July and August 2014[modifiché la sorgiss]

VisualEditor-logo.svg

The VisualEditor team is currently working mostly to fix bugs, improve performance, reduce technical debt, and other infrastructure needs. You can find on Mediawiki.org weekly updates detailing recent work.

Screenshot of VisualEditor's link tool
Dialog boxes in VisualEditor have been re-designed to use action words instead of icons. This has increased the number of items that need to be translated. The user guide is also being updated.

The biggest visible change since the last newsletter was to the dialog boxes. The design for each dialog box and window was simplified. The most commonly needed buttons are now at the top. Based on user feedback, the buttons are now labeled with simple words (like "Cancel" or "Done") instead of potentially confusing icons (like "<" or "X"). Many of the buttons to edit links, images, and other items now also show the linked page, image name, or other useful information when you click on them.

  • Hidden HTML comments (notes visible to editors, but not to readers) can now be read, edited, inserted, and removed. A small icon (a white exclamation mark on a dot) marks the location of each comments. You can click on the icon to see the comment.
  • You can now drag and drop text and templates as well as images. A new placement line makes it much easier to see where you are dropping the item. Images can no longer be dropped into the middle of paragraphs.
  • All references and footnotes (<ref> tags) are now made through the "⧼visualeditor-toolbar-cite-label⧽" menu, including the "Arferiment" (manual formatting) footnotes and the ability to re-use an existing citation, both of which were previously accessible only through the "Anserì" menu. The "⧼visualeditor-dialogbutton-referencelist-tooltip⧽" is still added via the "Anserì" menu.
  • When you add an image or other media file, you are now prompted to add an image caption immediately. You can also replace an image whilst keeping the original caption and other settings.
  • All tablet users visiting the mobile web version of Wikipedias will be able to opt-in to a version of VisualEditor from 14 August. You can test the new tool by choosing the beta version of the mobile view in the Settings menu.
  • The link tool has a new "Open" button that will open a linked page in another tab so you can make sure a link is the right one.
  • The "Cancel" button in the toolbar has been removed based on user testing. To cancel any edit, you can leave the page by clicking the Read tab, the back button in your browser, or closing the browser window without saving your changes.

Looking ahead[modifiché la sorgiss]

The team posts details about planned work on the VisualEditor roadmap. The VisualEditor team plans to add auto-fill features for citations soon. Your ideas about making referencing quick and easy are still wanted. Support for upright image sizes is being developed. The designers are also working on support for adding rows and columns to tables. Work to support Internet Explorer is ongoing.

Feedback opportunities[modifiché la sorgiss]

The Editing team will be making two presentations this weekend at Wikimania in London. The first is with product manager James Forrester and developer Trevor Parscal on Saturday at 16:30. The second is with developers Roan Kattouw and Trevor Parscal on Sunday at 12:30. There is a VisualEditor Translation Sprint going on during Wikimania; whether you're in London or not, any contributions are welcome!

Please share your questions, suggestions, or problems by posting a note at the VisualEditor feedback page or by joining the office hours discussion on Thursday, 14 August 2014 at 09:00 UTC (daytime for Europe, Middle East and Asia) or on Thursday, 18 September 2014 at 16:00 UTC (daytime for the Americas; evening for Europe).

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decisions[modifiché la sorgiss]

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[modifiché la sorgiss]

’’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.

La Taula dla Grafìa Piemontèisa Moderna[modifiché la sorgiss]

  1. Ant le ferie i lesìa j'At dël Rëscontr ëd Vërsèj antitolà La grafìa piemontèisa ant ij sécoj. Ant l'antërvent d'Albina Malerba i l'heu trovà: L'idea di uno schema riassuntivo semplice e alla portata di tutti sarà poi ripresa ed ampliata e costituirà la Taula de la Grafia Piemontese Moderna, che apparirà in ogni volume in piemontese pubblicato dal Centro Studi Piemontesi dal 1969 (si tratta di più di 100 volumi).
  2. I l'heu vardà, e la Storia dla Literatura Piemontèisa e i doi volum d'Antologìa dla Ca dë Studi a l'han la Taula.
  3. Vàire Crije dij Concors an Piemontèis a arpòrto la Taula (tipo col ëd Canèj, riva a l'Edission ch'a fà 36.
  4. La provinsa 'd Turin a l'ha adotala 'dcò belessì: http://www.provincia.torino.gov.it/cultura/minoranze/dwd/proverbi.pdf.

La Taula dla Grafìa Piemontèisa Moderna a l'é costa :

Il valore della maggior parte dei segni è identico a quello dell'italiano. Ci sono, comunque, alcune particolarità:
e senza accento, si pronuncia di solito aperta in sillaba chiusa (serne) e chiusa in sillaba aperta (pera), ma ci sono comunque delle eccezioni
é è simile alla e chiusa italiana, ma più aperta (caté, lassé)
è è simile alla e aperta italiana, ma più aperta (cafè, përchè).
ë detta e semimuta, assomiglia alla e francese di le (fërté, viëtta)
eu equivale al francese eu (cheuse, reusa)
o è simile alla u italiana (conté, mon)
ò è simile alla o aperta italiana, e in piemontese è sempre tonico (còla, fòrt)
u equivale al francese u o tedesco ü (bur, muraja)
ua dopo q (e in pochi casi isolati) vale la ua dell'italiano quando (quand, qual)
ùa si pronuncia bisillabo üa (crùa, lesùa)
j è simile alla i dell'italiano ieri e a quella di mai (braje, cavej); nella grafia piemontese, comunque, la j ha talora solo valore etimologico e si trova di solito in corrispondenza di un gl italiano (es. fija = it. figlia)
n- velare o faucale, senza un corrispondente preciso in italiano, ma è simile alla n di fango (lun-a, sman-a)
s in principio di parola o post-consonantica suona s sorda (sapa, batse), tra due vocali e alla fine di parola è sempre sonora (lese, vos)
ss si usa tra due vocali e alla fine di parola per indicare la s sorda (lassé, poss)
s-c esprime il suono distinto di s e c (s-cet, s-cianché)
v alla fine di parola si pronuncia in modo simile alla u italiana di paura (ativ "attivo", luv "lupo"), e così avviene anche al centro di una parola quando essa non corrisponda ad una v italiana (gavte "levati", luva "lupa"); negli altri casi ha il suono della v italiana (lavé, savèj).
z si usa solo in posizione iniziale o postconsonantica per indicare la s sonora (zanziva, 'monze).
Accentazione.

Si segna l’accento tonico sulle sillabe sdrucciole (stiribàcola), sulle tronche che escono in vocale (parlé, pagà, cafè), sulle piane che escono in consonante (quadèr, nùmer), sul dittongo ei se la e è aperta (piemontèis, mèis), sul gruppo ua quando la u vale ü (batùa), e sui gruppi di i più vocale alla fine di parola (finìa, podrìo, ferìe). L’accento si segna anche in pochi altri casi isolati in cui non ci vorrebbe in base allq regola o per evidenziare le eccezioni (tèra, amèra, in cui la e di sillaba aperta dovrebbe essere chiusa mentre è aperta) e può essere usato, se si vuole, sulla e delle sillabe finali -et, -el per indicare il grado di apertura (bochèt, lèt). L’accento è utile anche per riconoscere alcune coppie di omografi ( = verbo "egli sa", sa "questa"; = avverbio, la = articolo).

A-i é ëdcò autr doi paragrafet Particolarità grafiche e Avvertenza. I l'oma sta taula da cheiche part? im n'arcòrdo nen. Se i-l l'oma nen da gnun-e part, lòn che na dise d'adotela?

Meta RfCs on two new global groups[modifiché la sorgiss]

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 Otó 2014 (UTC)

Global AbuseFilter[modifiché la sorgiss]

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

Ci vediamo a Milano? (Con Lila Tretikov)[modifiché la sorgiss]

Ciao :) Sto passando da tutti i progetti italofoni (e affini!) per segnalare l'importante appuntamento di settimana prossima con l'Executive Director della Wikimedia Foundation (mi scuso con chi legge la notizia più volte). Come ho detto altrove, lei verrà per conoscere la comunità italofona, per vedere facce nuove, per sentire voci nuove. Incontri come questi sono fondamentali per una persona come lei, che non viene dal Movimento, per conoscerlo e capirlo, integrando altre occasioni di contatto (ad es. Wikimania) magari più "superficiali", durante i quali molte più persone ci tengono a presentarsi e a interagire con lei, o più formali (l'impressione che ci fa qualcuno sotto i riflettori di un palcoscenico può essere anche molto diversa quando il contesto cambia). Se potete, dunque, non fatevi "rappresentare"! E date le diversità tra le comunità di Wikipedia e quelle degli altri progetti, venite anche per raccontarle quanto siano belli e importanti questi ultimi! Spero di vedervi lì! A presto, --Elitre (ciaciarade) 19:54, 12 Fër 2015 (UTC) (Se avete domande, fatele nella pagina linkata, o potrei perdermele.)

Inspire Campaign: Improving diversity, improving content[modifiché la sorgiss]

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 rules[modifiché la sorgiss]

Hello, I made a proposal on Meta to change the rules for the steward confirmations.

Nominations are being accepted for 2015 Wikimedia Foundation elections[modifiché la sorgiss]

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

Wmf logo vert pms.svg

Greetings,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

On behalf of the Elections Committee,

Pywikibot compat will no longer be supported - Please migrate to pywikibot core[modifiché la sorgiss]

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

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

Thank you,

Proposal to create PNG thumbnails of static GIF images[modifiché la sorgiss]

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 (ciaciarade) 05:07, 24 Luj 2015 (UTC)

Wikidata: Access to data from arbitrary items is coming[modifiché la sorgiss]

(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:

Wikimania 2016 scholarships ambassadors needed[modifiché la sorgiss]

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.

The consultation period is intended to run for one month from today, November 16, and end on December 17.

Your input requested on the proposed #FreeBassel banner campaign[modifiché la sorgiss]

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!

2016 WMF Strategy consultation[modifiché la sorgiss]

Aiutaci a tradurre nella tua lingua

Hello, all.

The Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) has launched a consultation to help create and prioritize WMF strategy beginning July 2016 and for the 12 to 24 months thereafter. This consultation will be open, on Meta, from 18 January to 26 February, after which the Foundation will also use these ideas to help inform its Annual Plan. (More on our timeline can be found on that Meta page.)

Your input is welcome (and greatly desired) at the Meta discussion, 2016 Strategy/Community consultation.

Apologies for English, where this is posted on a non-English project. We thought it was more important to get the consultation translated as much as possible, and good headway has been made there in some languages. There is still much to do, however! We created m:2016 Strategy/Translations to try to help coordinate what needs translation and what progress is being made. :)

If you have questions, please reach out to me on my talk page or on the strategy consultation's talk page or by email to mdennis@wikimedia.org.

I hope you'll join us! Maggie Dennis via MediaWiki message delivery (ciaciarade) 19:06, 18 gen 2016 (UTC)

Server switch 2016[modifiché la sorgiss]

The Wikimedia Foundation will be testing its newest data center in Dallas. This will make sure Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia wikis can stay online even after a disaster. To make sure everything is working, the Wikimedia Technology department needs to conduct a planned test. This test will show whether they can reliably switch from one data center to the other. It requires many teams to prepare for the test and to be available to fix any unexpected problems.

They will switch all traffic to the new data center on Tuesday, 19 April.
On Thursday, 21 April, they will switch back to the primary data center.

Unfortunately, because of some limitations in MediaWiki, all editing must stop during those two switches. We apologize for this disruption, and we are working to minimize it in the future.

You will be able to read, but not edit, all wikis for a short period of time.

  • You will not be able to edit for approximately 15 to 30 minutes on Tuesday, 19 April and Thursday, 21 April, starting at 14:00 UTC (15:00 BST, 16:00 CEST, 10:00 EDT, 07:00 PDT).

If you try to edit or save during these times, you will see an error message. We hope that no edits will be lost during these minutes, but we can't guarantee it. If you see the error message, then please wait until everything is back to normal. Then you should be able to save your edit. But, we recommend that you make a copy of your changes first, just in case.

Other effects:

  • Background jobs will be slower and some may be dropped.

Red links might not be updated as quickly as normal. If you create an article that is already linked somewhere else, the link will stay red longer than usual. Some long-running scripts will have to be stopped.

  • There will be a code freeze for the week of 18 April.

No non-essential code deployments will take place.

This test was originally planned to take place on March 22. April 19th and 21st are the new dates. You can read the schedule at wikitech.wikimedia.org. They will post any changes on that schedule. There will be more notifications about this. Please share this information with your community. /User:Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 21:08, 17 Avr 2016 (UTC)

Hi. I can see that this project has old JavaScript that needs to be updated.

I have already made these updates on a number of other projects, so it would be very easy for me to do this. If no one does anything, some JavaScript-related tools will break later this year. If you want me to make these updates, you can grant me admin rights and I will make the updates as soon as I can. Nirmos (ciaciarade) 06:25, 4 giu 2016 (UTC)

Compact Links coming soon to this wiki[modifiché la sorgiss]

Screenshot of Compact Language Links interlanguage list

Hello, I wanted to give a heads up about an upcoming feature for this wiki which you may seen already in Tech News. Compact Language Links has been available as a beta-feature on all Wikimedia wikis since 2014. With compact language links enabled, users are shown a much shorter list of languages on the interlanguage link section of an article (see image). This will be enabled as a feature in the coming week for all users, which can be turned on or off using a preference setting. We look forward to your feedback and please do let us know if you have any questions. Details about Compact Language Links can be read in the project documentation.

Due to the large scale enablement of this feature, we have had to use MassMessage for this message and as a result it is only written in English. We will really appreciate if this message can be translated for other users of this wiki. The main announcement can also be translated on this page. Thank you.

Wikipedia to the Moon: invitation to edit[modifiché la sorgiss]

Three weeks ago, you were invited to vote on how to take Wikipedia articles to the Moon. Community voting is over and the winning idea is to send all ‘’featured articles and lists’’ to the Moon. This decision means that, starting today, Wikipedians from all language communities are warmly invited to intensively work on their best articles and lists, and submit them to Wikipedia to the Moon. The central site to coordinate between communities will be Meta-Wiki. You will find an overview and more information there. Hopefully, we will be able to represent as many languages as possible, to show Wikipedia’s diversity. Please feel kindly invited to edit on behalf of your community and tell us about your work on featured content!

Screenshot of Compact Language Links interlanguage list

Compact Language Links has been available as a beta-feature on all Wikimedia wikis since 2014. With compact language links enabled, users are shown a much shorter list of languages on the interlanguage link section of an article (see image). Based on several factors, this shorter list of languages is expected to be more relevant for them and valuable for finding similar content in a language known to them. More information about compact language links can be found in the documentation.

From today onwards, compact language links has been enabled as the default listing of interlanguage links on this wiki. However, using the button at the bottom, you will be able to see a longer list of all the languages the article has been written in. The setting for this compact list can be changed by using the checkbox under User Preferences -> Appearance -> Languages

The compact language links feature has been tested extensively by the Wikimedia Language team, which developed it. However, in case there are any problems or other feedback please let us know on the project talk page. It is to be noted that on some wikis the presence of an existing older gadget that was used for a similar purpose may cause an interference for compact language list. We would like to bring this to the attention of the admins of this wiki. Full details are on this phabricator ticket (in English).

Due to the large scale enablement of this feature, we have had to use MassMessage for this announcement and as a result it is only written in English.

Wikipedia to the Moon working phase[modifiché la sorgiss]

Dear Piedmontese Wikipedia language community,

First of all, I am sorry to write this in English.

You may already have heard about Wikipedia to the Moon: A team of scientists called the “PT Scientists” are going to send a space craft to the moon in 2017 and they want to take Wikipedia along with them. Because Wikipedia is so big, we cannot send all of it to the moon. That is why the international Wikipedia-community has voted to send all “Featured Articles and Featured Lists“ from all languages in Wikipedia.

“Featured Articles“ is a category in many language versions of Wikipedia that collects the very best articles in that language. Your community does not currently have a „Featured Articles“ category. Ideally, we want to take every language on Wikipedia to the moon and we also want to take the best articles in your language. That is why we would like you to tell us what the very best articles in your language are.

There are two ways you could do this:

1) You could introduce the categories “Featured Article” and “Featured List” in your language version of Wikipedia and vote for the best articles and put them in the category. We will take every article that is tagged as a “Featured Article” or a “Featured List” to the moon
2) You could vote for the best articles in your language version of Wikipedia and put them all on one a new Wikipedia page. If you let us know where we can find that list here, we will also take the articles to the moon.

The deadline for Wikipedia to the Moon is 31 October 2016. After that date, we will put all the Featured Articles and Lists onto a special disc and give it to the “PT Scientists.” They will take the Wikipedia articles into space next year.

Review of initial updates on Wikimedia movement strategy process[modifiché la sorgiss]

Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English. Message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

The Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout 2017. For 15 years, Wikimedians have worked together to build the largest free knowledge resource in human history. During this time, we've grown from a small group of editors to a diverse network of editors, developers, affiliates, readers, donors, and partners. Today, we are more than a group of websites. We are a movement rooted in values and a powerful vision: all knowledge for all people. As a movement, we have an opportunity to decide where we go from here.

This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve. We hope to design an inclusive process that makes space for everyone: editors, community leaders, affiliates, developers, readers, donors, technology platforms, institutional partners, and people we have yet to reach. There will be multiple ways to participate including on-wiki, in private spaces, and in-person meetings. You are warmly invited to join and make your voice heard.

The immediate goal is to have a strategic direction by Wikimania 2017 to help frame a discussion on how we work together toward that strategic direction.

Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list, and posted on Meta-Wiki. Beginning with this message, monthly reviews of these updates will be sent to this page as well. Sign up to receive future announcements and monthly highlights of strategy updates on your user talk page.

Here is a review of the updates that have been sent so far:

Please accept our apologies for cross-posting this message. This message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

On behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee, I am pleased to announce that self-nominations are being accepted for the 2017 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees Elections.

The Board of Trustees (Board) is the decision-making body that is ultimately responsible for the long-term sustainability of the Wikimedia Foundation, so we value wide input into its selection. More information about this role can be found on Meta-Wiki. Please read the letter from the Board of Trustees calling for candidates.

The candidacy submission phase will last from April 7 (00:00 UTC) to April 20 (23:59 UTC).

We will also be accepting questions to ask the candidates from April 7 to April 20. You can submit your questions on Meta-Wiki.

Once the questions submission period has ended on April 20, the Elections Committee will then collate the questions for the candidates to respond to beginning on April 21.

The goal of this process is to fill the three community-selected seats on the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. The election results will be used by the Board itself to select its new members.

The full schedule for the Board elections is as follows. All dates are inclusive, that is, from the beginning of the first day (UTC) to the end of the last.

  • April 7 (00:00 UTC) – April 20 (23:59 UTC) – Board nominations
  • April 7 – April 20 – Board candidates questions submission period
  • April 21 – April 30 – Board candidates answer questions
  • May 1 – May 14 – Board voting period
  • May 15–19 – Board vote checking
  • May 20 – Board result announcement goal

In addition to the Board elections, we will also soon be holding elections for the following roles:

  • Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC)
    • There are five positions being filled. More information about this election will be available on Meta-Wiki.
  • Funds Dissemination Committee Ombudsperson (Ombuds)
    • One position is being filled. More information about this election will be available on Meta-Wiki.

Please note that this year the Board of Trustees elections will be held before the FDC and Ombuds elections. Candidates who are not elected to the Board are explicitly permitted and encouraged to submit themselves as candidates to the FDC or Ombuds positions after the results of the Board elections are announced.

More information on this year's elections can be found on Meta-Wiki. Any questions related to the election can be posted on the election talk page on Meta-Wiki, or sent to the election committee's mailing list, board-elections(at)wikimedia.org.

On behalf of the Election Committee,
Katie Chan, Chair, Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee
Joe Sutherland, Community Advocate, Wikimedia Foundation

Wikidata description editing in the Wikipedia Android app[modifiché la sorgiss]

Wikidata description editing is a new experiment being rolled out on the Wikipedia app for Android. While this primarily impacts Wikidata, the changes are also addressing a concern about the mobile versions of Wikipedia, so that mobile users will be able to edit directly the descriptions shown under the title of the page and in the search results.

We began by rolling out this feature several weeks ago to a pilot group of Wikipedias (Russian, Hebrew, and Catalan), and have seen very positive results including numerous quality contributions in the form of new and updated descriptions, and a low rate of vandalism.

We are now ready for the next phase of rolling out this feature, which is to enable it in a few days for all Wikipedias except the top ten by usage within the app (i.e. except English, German, Italian, French, Spanish, Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese, Turkish, and Chinese). We will enable the feature for those languages instead at some point in the future, as we closely monitor user engagement with our expanded set of pilot communities. As always, if have any concerns, please reach out to us on wiki at the talk page for this project or by email at reading@wikimedia.org. Thanks!

Prototype for editing Wikidata infoboxes on Wikipedia[modifiché la sorgiss]

Hello,

I’m sorry for writing in English. It’d be great if someone could translate this message if necessary.

One of the most requested features for Wikidata is to enable editing of Wikidata’s data directly from Wikipedia, so the editors can continue their workflow without switching websites.

The Wikidata development team has been working on a tool to achieve this goal: fill and edit the Wikipedia infoboxes with information from Wikidata, directly on Wikipedia, via the Visual Editor.

We already asked for feedback in 2015, and collected some interesting ideas which we shared with you in this thesis. Now we would like to present to you our first prototype and collect your feedback, in order to improve and continue the development of this feature.

We present this work to you very early, so we can include your feedback before and all along the development. You are the core users of this feature, so we want to make sure that it fits your needs and editing processes.

You will find the prototype, description of the features, and a demo video, on this page. Feel free to add any comment or feedback on the talk page. The page is currently not translated in every languages, but you can add your contribution by helping to translate it.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to follow all the discussions on Wikipedia, so if you want to be sure that your feedback is read, please add it on the Wikidata page, in your favorite language. Thanks for your understanding.

Thanks, Lea Lacroix (WMDE)

New notification when a page is connected to Wikidata[modifiché la sorgiss]

Hello all,

(Aiutaci a tradurre nella tua lingua)

The Wikidata development team is about to deploy a new feature on all Wikipedias. It is a new type of notification (via Echo, the notification system you see at the top right of your wiki when you are logged in), that will inform the creator of a page, when this page is connected to a Wikidata item.

You may know that Wikidata provides a centralized system for all the interwikilinks. When a new page is created, it should be connected to the corresponding Wikidata item, by modifying this Wikidata item. With this new notification, editors creating pages will be informed when another editor connects this page to Wikidata.

Screenshot Echo Wikibase notification.png

This feature will be deployed on May 30th on all the Wikipedias, excepting English, French and German. This feature will be disable by default for existing editors, and enabled by default for new editors.

This is the first step of the deployments, the Wikipedias and other Wikimedia projects will follow in the next months.

If you have any question, suggestion, please let me know by pinging me. You can also follow and leave a comment on the Phabricator ticket.

Thanks go to Matěj Suchánek who developed this feature!

Mersì! Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talk)
