Wikipedia to the Moon[breyta frumkóða]

Hello! Sorry that this is in English only, but we are using village pump messaging in order to reach as many language communities as possible. Wrong page? Please fix it here.

This is an invitation to all Wikipedians: Wikimedia Deutschland has been given data space to include Wikipedia content in an upcoming mission to the Moon. (No joke!) We have launched a community discussion about how to do that, because we feel that this is for the global community of editors. Please, join the discussion on Meta-Wiki (and translate this invitation to your language community)! Best, Moon team at Wikimedia Deutschland 21. apríl 2016 kl. 15:35 (UTC)

Each year we organise Wiki Loves Monuments in various countries around the world. It is a photo contest with local teams, supported by the international team. This year we especially like to support countries who have not participated before, like Iceland.

If you are interested in organisation, please look at this page for more information: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2016/Organise

If you have any questions or need for support, feel free to contact me. We can support you in many ways.

Hi all, The above message was coming from me.

One of the things we like to do is that from all countries in the world the public can learn about the local cultural heritage. In may countries the national government has assigned/designated certain buildings as monument. Would be great if these are listed somewhere. Does anyone know if Iceland has monuments? If yes, where to find more information about those? Thanks! Romaine (spjall) 8. júní 2016 kl. 01:52 (UTC)

Icelandic monuments are assigned by the cultural heritage agency of Iceland. Their website is at minjastofnun.is. At the Icelandic part of their website is an list over Icelandic monuments. However, as with France, the copyright restrictions here mean that the list would need to be filtered as the FOP (Freedom-of-Panorama) clause is too restrictive for wikimedia commons. For an English speaker it is probably easiest to get the list through the carare project on Europeana, although that list is likely outdated (as of 2013).--Snaevar (spjall) 8. júní 2016 kl. 22:51 (UTC)

Wikipedia to the Moon: voting has begun[breyta frumkóða]

Hello, after six weeks of community discussion about Wikipedia to the Moon, there are now 10 different proposals for content for the mission. Starting today, you can vote for them on Meta-Wiki, and decide what we will work on: a Wikipedia canon, different lists, the Moon in 300 languages, an astronomy editathon, featured articles, articles about technology, endangered things, or DNA-related topics. You can even vote against community involvement. Voting is open until 24 June. Sorry that this message is again in English only, but we are using village pumps to reach as many communities as possible, so that everyone knows they can vote.

Photos of Icelandic politicians (and other personalities)[breyta frumkóða]

Hæ! :-) I apologize for writing in English - after years of rather lazy learning (it's just a hobby for me, as a Swiss person living in Switzerland), I understand quite a bit of Icelandic, but don't really feel comfortable writing. Well... I hope this is the right place for my suggestion. As I'm fascinated by everything Icelandic, one of the things I like to do is writing or expanding articles about Icelandic politicians in German-language Wikipedia, so we have there now e.g. articles for all current members of Alþingi. But what we don't have in most cases are photos - apparently, there is a distinct lack of free photos of Icelandic politicians and other personalities. I notice that even here in Icelandic Wikipedia, articles often use non-free photos (with NC restriction) that can't be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons - and also aren't accepted in German-language Wikipedia. So, I wonder... as Iceland is a small country, maybe it would be possible for Icelandic Wikipedians to take some photos, for example at official events, to increase the amount of available free photos? Even organize some kind of "Wikipedia at the parliament" photo session? In Germany, for example, they successfully carried out a photo project at their parliament Bundestag, see de:Wikipedia:Landtagsprojekt/BT, and similar projects for parliaments of member states. I think that such a project in Iceland would be great, too! :-) Of course, more free photos of e.g. Icelandic artists, writers etc. would also be very welcome.

Cool project and a great idea :) --Akigka (spjall) 21. júní 2016 kl. 09:58 (UTC)
I think the idea has been raised before, although it's good to get a regular reminder until we get going! ;) I'm sure we could get to take a picture of the president-elect for Wikimedia Commons if we asked him. Just need someone with a proper camera willing to upload it to commons. Regarding the members of parliament, we could use the opportunity to organise an event like that soon after the elections next autumn. For other people, we could start hunting them down earlier to shoot them (with a camera). :D -Svavar Kjarrval (spjall) 26. júní 2016 kl. 10:35 (UTC)
@Svavar Kjarrval: "I'm sure we could get to take a picture of the president-elect for Wikimedia Commons if we asked him" - that would be great, would be a good first step to have a photo of Guðni Th. Jóhannesson; would be even greater if we had one for Commons before him taking office on August 1, so the Wikipedia articles in various languages don't have to be picture-less then... so, maybe one of you Icelanders will have a chance to take a photo sometimes in the near future? Gestumblindi (spjall) 14. júlí 2016 kl. 10:59 (UTC)
@Gestumblindi If a smartphone picture (Samsung Galaxy S4) would suffice, I could do it on my own. Although I'd think it would be better if someone with a better camera should make the appointment so we won't need to bother him again for a better quality picture so soon after the first one. -Svavar Kjarrval (spjall) 14. júlí 2016 kl. 12:41 (UTC)
@Svavar Kjarrval: As far as I know, the Galaxy S4 has a good camera, and a nice picture taken in good light would certainly be sufficient for the time being - better than having no picture at all anyway, I'd say? :-) Gestumblindi (spjall) 14. júlí 2016 kl. 22:54 (UTC)

Compact Links coming soon to this wiki[breyta frumkóða]

Please help translate to your language

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[breyta frumkóða]

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!

Compact Language Links enabled in this wiki today[breyta frumkóða]

Please help translate to your language

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.

Davíðshús - Wikipediagreinar um efni tengt Akureyri og nágrenni[breyta frumkóða]

Ég var að senda inn umsókn um eina viku í Davíðshúsi á Akureyri til wikipedia skrifa. Datt þá í hug að ef af verður þá væri það upplagt tækifæri fyrir Wikicamp og ef til vill væri það skemmtilegt og áhugahvetjandi ef einhver lítill hópur íslenskra wikipedians færi saman á staðina og reyndi að útbreiða fagnaðarerindið, fá fólk á svæðunum til að skrifa greinar og leggja í púkkið efni frá heimabyggð. Það eru víða svona hús á stöðunum eins og 1) Akureyri - Davíðshús, 2) Skriðuklaustur, 3) Hólmavík og ég veit að víða er í boði gisting þó hún sé ekki auglýst. Ég t.d. sjálf ræð yfir miklu húsnæði á Bolungarvík sem ég hef oft lánað í alls konar viðburði. Hvernig væri að hefja einhvers konar stuttar ferðir um landið og leita eftir styrkjum til þess þ.e. fyrir ferðakostnaði þeirra sem fara? Hér er bréfið sem ég sendi ___ Sent: 6. september 2016 11:30

To: Þorsteinn G. Jónsson <doddi@akureyri.is> Subject: Davíðshús umsókn

Ég óska eftir úthlutun í Davíðshúsi í eina viku, helst sumarið 2017 (ekki þó senni hlutann í maí, verð þá í Noregi). Aðrir tímar en sumarið koma þó til greina en vegna vissra aðstæðna væri betra að það væri að sumarlvagi.

Verkefni sem ég hyggst vinna að er verkefni sem ég hef unnið að mjög lengi. Það felst í því að skrifa greinar í íslensku wikipedia (is.wikipedia.org) um efni sem varðar íslenskan veruleika þ.e. náttúru, sögu og menningu. Ég hef reynt að taka fyrir ákveðin landssvæði og hef t.d. reynt að skrifa mikið af greinum tengdar Vestfjörðum og svæðum í Reykjavík.

Núna langar mig til að taka fyrir Akureyri og nálægar byggðir og skrifa greinar um hús og náttúru þar ásamt ýmsu um atvinnulíf og mannlíf á Akureyri fyrr á tímum og reyna að fá aðra til samstarf um það. Það er þvímíður ansi fáir sem skrifa greinar að staðaldri, ég giska á að við séum ekki nema um 20 og brýnt að það komi fleiri að því. Allar greinar á Wikipedíu verða að vera studdar heimildum og það er ekki vettvangur fyrir frumheimildir heldur lýsing á því sem hefur verið áður birt af ábyrgðum aðilum. Sem dæmi má nefna að ég skrifa mikið að greinum og greinastúfum um jurtir sem þrífast á Íslandi og þá hefur Lystigarðurinn á Akureyri og hans góði og nákvæmi vefur verið drjúg heimild en ég hins vegar skrifa grein sem er í tengslum við erlendar greinar um sömu jurt og með sams konar uppbyggingu. Það sem vinnst í því er að þá get ég notað gríðarstórt myndasafn (commons.wikimedia.org) og greinin nýtist líka þeim sem væru með annað tungumál.

Dæmi um hagnýta notkun á wikipediagreinum

Það er auðvitað hægt að fletta upp í wikipedia og skoða greinar þar en það eru margir möguleikar sem einnig eru varðandi fólk sem er á ferð og eingöngu með síma til að afla upplýsinga og taka þátt í ýmis konar leiðöngrum. Segjum svo að lystigarðurinn væri með QR kóða fyrir neðan merkingu á jurt á wikipediagrein um jurtina Mánaklungur https://is.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mánaklungur þá myndi notandi sem væri með Wikipedia app og QR kóða app (flestir eru með slíkt og auðvelt að setja slíkt inn og kostar lítið eða ekkert). Á slóðinni http://qrpedia.org er hægt að slá inn slóð á grein í Wikipedia (hér er skjámynd með dæmi um slíkt http://i.imgur.com/azZnxmi.jpg Þessi QR kóði væri svo prentaður og komið fyrir af starfmanni (geta verið mjög litlir, bara frímerkjastærð)

Notandi sem kæmi að og skannaði QR kóðann með símanum sínum myndi fá greinina á því tungumáli sem hann hefur stillt símann sinn á (væntanlega sitt móðurmál). Annað dæmi um notkun wikipedia er að margir aðilar sem eru með kortbjóða upp á að wikipediagreinar um nærliggjandi staði eru aðgengilegar. Þriðja dæmið er að nota wikipedia sem ein gögn í símaleikjum og afþreyingu (pokemon go er dæmi um slíkan leik)

Ég hef reyndar skrifað nokkrar wikipediagreinar sem tengjast Akureyri s.s. greinar um atvinnulíf fyrri tíma t.d. verksmiðjurekstur á Gleráreyrum og ýmislegt annað

Það væri fengur að geta unnið að slíkum greinaskrifum í námunda við staðina og reynt að nálgast myndefni sem tengist greinum og geta unnið í Amtbókasafninu ásamt því að skoða staðina.

virðingarfyllst Salvör Gissurardóttir lektor í upplýsingatækni og miðlun við Menntavísindasvið Háskóla ÍSlands ___ Hverjir eru með í að koma til Akureyrar á svona Wikicamp? --Salvor (spjall) 6. september 2016 kl. 13:26 (UTC)

Review of initial updates on Wikimedia movement strategy process[breyta frumkóða]

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:

Start of the 2017 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees elections[breyta frumkóða]

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

Wikimedia-logo black.svg

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.

Wikidata description editing in the Wikipedia Android app[breyta frumkóða]

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!

WLM 2017: Sjálfboðaliðar óskast[breyta frumkóða]

Ég vill óska eftir sjálfboðaliðum í myndakeppni sem heitir Wiki Loves Monuments (WLM). Wiki Loves Monuments er keppni þar sem þáttakendur senda inn myndir á Commons og eiga bæði möguleika á vinningi innanlands og geta einnig farið í alþjóðlegan vinningspott. Keppnin byrjaði árið 2010 í Hollandi, árið 2012 varð hún alþjóðleg keppni og hún er núverandi heimsmetshafi Guinness fyrir stærstu myndakeppnina.

Ég hef tekið saman svokallaðan todo lista yfir þann undirbúning sem þarf að vinna fyrir keppnina. Ef þú hefur áhuga, vinsamlegast merktu við þau atriði sem þú vilt hjálpa til með. Helst vantar mig almannatengslafulltrúa. Það væri líka mjög gott ef Wikimedia Ísland væri til í að styðja við keppnina.--Snaevar (spjall) 20. apríl 2017 kl. 23:28 (UTC)

Stefna í staðarheitum[breyta frumkóða]

Ég er síðustu daga búinn að vera að skoða staðar- og landaheiti hérna af því að ég er að vinna að þýða netpróf í landafræði. Ég hef líka haft til hliðsjónar vef Árnastofnunar og Tímarit.is. Það er margt afskaplega vel gert þar sem aðlögun að íslensku er góð. Það á t.d. sérstaklega við um lönd og staði sem bera spænsk og frönsk heiti. Þar virðast menn nota staðlaðar umritunarreglur. En það er ýmislegt annað sem mér finnst vera full handahófskennt.

Ég er búinn að vera að færa rök fyrir því að nafni síðunnar Beijing verði breytt í Peking. Þar fannst mér tvo meginatriði vega þyngst. Hið opinbera notar orðið Peking og orðið er líka miklu meira notað á Tímarit.is sem bendir til þess að það sé almennt.

Ég ætla ekki að halda áfram þeirri rökræðu heldur spyrja hvaða stefna eigi að vera almennt. Ég hef séð spjallsíður þar sem fólk vísar í almenna notkun á nafni (eða orði) sem rök fyrir því að nota ekki formlega/opinbera/íslenska nafnið. Það sem slær mig er að það að þessum yfirlýsingum fylgja engin gögn. Fólk er bara að meta þetta út frá sjálfu sér og umhverfi sínu. Ég held að Tímarit.is sé besta tólið sem við höfum til að meta þetta. Auðvitað getum við líka notað Google-leit en hún á það til að vera villandi af ýmsum ástæðum - aðallega af því að maður getur ekki tekið íslenskuna almennilega út fyrir sviga.

Auðvitað er oft svínslega erfitt að ákvarða svona hluti. Ég t.d. myndi telja rétt að tala um Oklahómaborg en ég get ekki fundið neitt nafn yfir Salt Lake City á íslensku sem ég er sáttur við.

Óli Gneisti - lágmenningarfræðingur (spjall) 11. maí 2017 kl. 21:45 (UTC)

Svo ég viti hefur reglan yfirleitt verið sú að sá sem stofnar síðu ákveður hvað hún á að heita og þeirri ákvörðun er hlítt nema góð rök séu fyrir því að færa síðuna, t.d. af því að það er stafsetningarvilla í síðuheitinu eða slíkt. Þessi hefð er væntanlega erfð af ensku Wikipedíu þar sem deilur koma reglulega upp um t.d. stafsetningu í síðuheitum.
Ég er ekki þeirrar skoðunar að við eigum að búa til íslensk heiti yfir borgir sem eru ekki með heiti sem er ekki með almennt íslenskt heiti, t.d. fyrir Salt Lake City eins og þú nefnir hér fyrir ofan.
Málið með að nota Tímarit.is er það að gögnin spanna allt of langt tímabil og endurspegla því ekki málnotkun dagsins í dag. Sem dæmi má nefna greinina app, sem á að heita „notra“ eða eitthvað slíkt sé farið eftir fyrirmælum Árnastofnunar. Orðið „app“ kemur varla við sögu á Tímarit.is, fyrsta dæmið er minnir mig frá 2011. Vandinn er sá að Árnastofnun er oft ekki í takt við nútímann hvað varðar málnotkun og þeirra ráðleggingar eru oft mjög íhaldssamar. Wikipedía er lýðræðislegt verkefni og málið á því á að mínu mati að endurspegla málið sem almenningurinn notar. Það má deila um t.d. hvort Beijing sé algengara en Peking en það er það skemmtilega við Wikipedíu: við fáum áð ráða :)
Ég legg til að við verðum frjálslyndir upp að vissu marki og notum bara það heiti sem er algengast en ekki endilega það sem Árnastofnun skipar fyrir. Maxí (spjall) 11. maí 2017 kl. 23:45 (UTC)
Það er auðvitað til íslenskt nafn á Salt Lake City en það er bara svo asnalegt að enginn notar það. Ég held að það sé ekkert sérstaklega góð hugmynd að við bara ráðum. Það byggir þá einmitt annað hvort á eigin rannsókn eða skoðunum frekar en gögnum. Við þurfum líka að hafa einhver viðmið varðandi umritunarreglur. Íslenska Wikipedia er svo lítið samfélag að þannig geta tinktúrur í einum einstaklingi ráðið. Menn geta líka breytt nöfnum á síðum, eins og gerðist með Peking, án þess að nokkur umræða fari þar fram. Það þarf því viðmið. Ég er líka sérstaklega að tala um staðarheiti sem snýst ekki um nýyrðasmíð. Árnastofnun er ekkert rosalega íhaldssöm í staðarheitum. Það má t.d. nefna að íslensk málnefnd [með Kíev, London og Dublin en ekki Kænugarði, Lundúnum og Dyflinn].
Ég held að almenna reglan hljóti frekar að vera að það þurfi rök til að breyta frá stefnu Árnastofnunar í þessum málum og að þau rök geti ekki byggt á tilfinningu einstaklings fyrir því að eitthvað sé algengara. Það er vandamál að margir telja að ensk staðarheiti séu alþjóðleg heiti og telji það vera einhverja sérvisku að nota íslensk nöfn sem hafa verið notuð lengi. Auðvitað detta sum nöfn úr almennri notkun og önnur er svo slæm að þau ná aldrei fótfestu (Saltsjóstaður) en Wikipedia á ekki að leiða inn breytingar.

Hvernig er stefnan með bandstrik? Kenai-skagi en ekki Oklahoma-borg? Á bandstrik bara við þegar heiti eru ekki íslenskuð eða á að nota það í hvívetna?Berserkur (spjall) 12. maí 2017 kl. 10:07 (UTC)
"Framandstrik: Bandstrik eru notuð til að auðkenna óaðlöguð erlend orð í samsetningum frá íslenskum orðhluta. Erlent orð telst vera óaðlagað ef í því eru tákn sem ekki eru í íslensku stafrófi, til dæmis z eða c, ef það fylgir ekki íslenskri hljóðskipan eða ef stafsetning þess er ekki í samræmi við almenna stafsetningu í íslensku."

Prototype for editing Wikidata infoboxes on Wikipedia[breyta frumkóða]

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)

Efnasambandsbox[breyta frumkóða]

Ég var að búa til infóbox fyrir efnasambönd: Snið:Efnasamband. Það er ennþá í vinnslu en þið megið endilega byrja að nota það. Það er miklu einfaldara en á öðrum wikipedíum, ég byggði það á norska sniðið en enn sem komið eru mun færri gildi í íslenska sniðinu. Ef þið rekist á villur/bögg endilega látið mig vita! Maxí (spjall) 15. maí 2017 kl. 20:49 (UTC)

Finnst betra að hafa þetta svona einfalt. Þessi gríðarlöngu snið hægra megin taka síðurnar svolítið yfir, þótt þau geri eflaust sjálfvirka vinnslu auðveldari. Þau yfirtaka líka síðuna í mobile- og app-útgáfunum (notandinn þarf að skrolla niður ógnarlangt snið til að komast í innihaldið). Það er því betra að hafa þau stutt, finnst mér. --Akigka (spjall) 16. maí 2017 kl. 10:19 (UTC)
Já, sammála. Langflest gildin eru valfrjáls þannig að maður getur haft boxið eins stutt eða langt og maður vill. Maxí (spjall) 16. maí 2017 kl. 10:22 (UTC)

New notification when a page is connected to Wikidata[breyta frumkóða]

Hello all,

(Please help translate to your language)

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!

Takk! Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talk)

m:Requests for comment/Global centralnotice for the blockade of the Turkish government[breyta frumkóða]

Hi, you are invited to participate in the discussion on the proposal to make a banner through m: centralnotice to inform more people around the world about what the Turkish government has done about Wikipedia, ie all the language versions of Wikipedia are You are obscured, so in Turkey it is impossible to view the * .wikipedia.org site. To hope that the Turkish government will remove the block, it is necessary to raise awareness of this fact around the world because it is important to succeed in this mission because Wikipedia can not be seen in Turkey. With this message also for those interested, I invite him to sign the Wikimedian appeal.

If you have any questions or questions do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks best regards. --Samuele2002 (Talk!) 27. maí 2017 kl. 20:06 (UTC)

Greinin fókuserar mjög á hryðjuverk og tengir múslima og islam við þau. Alhæfingar og vafasamar fullyrðingar má finna þar. Spurning um ærlega hreingerningu eða að eyða greininni.

Improved search in deleted pages archive[breyta frumkóða]

Please help translate to your language

During Wikimedia Hackathon 2016, the Discovery team worked on one of the items on the 2015 community wishlist, namely enabling searching the archive of deleted pages. This feature is now ready for production deployment, and will be enabled on all wikis, except Wikidata.

Right now, the feature is behind a feature flag - to use it on your wiki, please go to the Special:Undelete page, and add &fuzzy=1 to the URL, like this: https://test.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3AUndelete&fuzzy=1. Then search for the pages you're interested in. There should be more results than before, due to using ElasticSearch indexing (via the CirrusSearch extension).

We plan to enable this improved search by default on all wikis soon (around August 1, 2017). If you have any objections to this - please raise them with the Discovery team via email or on this announcement's discussion page. Like most Mediawiki configuration parameters, the functionality can be configured per wiki. Once the improved search becomes the default, you can still access the old mode using &fuzzy=0 in the URL, like this: https://test.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3AUndelete&fuzzy=0

Please note that since Special:Undelete is an admin-only feature, this search capability is also only accessible to wiki admins.
