GreinirT2T sem þýðingarvél?[breyta frumkóða]

Það er þýðingartól hérna sem heitir ContentTranslate. Mér datt í hug að bæta við íslensku GreinirT2T þýðingarvélinni við hana. Hún á að vera með 71% nákvæmni (heimild: https://acl-bg.org/proceedings/2019/RANLP%202019/pdf/RANLP160.pdf ) á móti 65% hjá Google Translate og 50% hjá Apertium (heimild: https://www.ru.is/faculty/hrafn/students/IndependentStudy_ApertiumIceNLP.pdf ). GreinirT2T er með 2,5 milljónir uppflettiorða, er undir MIT/CC-BY4.0 leyfi og er gervigreindar þýðingarvél.

Making Flores a default Machine Translation for one month in Icelandic Wikipedia[breyta frumkóða]

Hello Friends!

The WMF Language team would like to make Flores, provided by an AI research team at Meta, the default machine translation support in your Wikipedia Content Translation tool for a test period of one month.

The above experiment will help us determine how useful the Machine Translation is for your community more reliably. By setting Flores as the default service, we expect more content to be created by using it and the data about its quality to be more representative. We plan to effect this change on 11th April 2022 unless your community has an objection not to make the FLORES the default Machine translation.

It is okay if individuals decide to select their default service, which would also be helpful to understand user preferences. However, we would encourage you to use it. After one month, we would revert to the initial default machine translation unless your community thinks otherwise.

We thank you for your support and look forward to the outcome of this test.


Flores now enabled as default Machine Translation for one month in Icelandic Wikipedia[breyta frumkóða]

Hello Friends!

The WMF Language team has made the Flores the default machine translation support in your Wikipedia Content Translation tool for a test period of one month as planned.

We look forward to your using the Machine Translation, feedback from your community within this period, and the outcome of this test.

Thank you!

Enabling Section Translation: a new mobile translation experience[breyta frumkóða]

Hello Icelandic Wikipedians!

Apologies as this message is not in Icelandic language, Please help translate to your language.

The WMF Language team is pleased to let you know that we will like to enable the Section translation tool in Icelandic Wikipedia. For this, our team will love you to read about the tool and test it so you can:

  • Give us your feedback
  • Ask us questions
  • Tell us how to improve it.

Below is background information about Section translation, why we have chosen your community, and how to test it.

Background information

Content Translation has been a successful tool for editors to create content in their language. More than one million articles have been created across all languages since the tool was released in 2015. The Wikimedia Foundation Language team has improved the translation experience further with the Section Translation. The WMF Language team enabled the early version of the tool in February in Bengali Wikipedia. Through their feedback, the tool was improved and ready for your community to test and help us with feedback to make it better.

Section Translation extends the capabilities of Content Translation to support mobile devices. On mobile, the tool will:

  • Guide you to translate one section at a time in order to expand existing articles or create new ones.
  • Make it easy to transfer knowledge across languages anytime from your mobile device.

Icelandic Wikipedia seems an ideal candidate to enjoy this new tool since data shows significant mobile editing activity.

We plan to enable the tool on Icelandic Wikipedia in the coming weeks if there are no objections from your community. After it is enabled, we’ll monitor the content created with the tool and process all the feedback. In any case, feel free to raise any concerns or questions you may already have in any of the following formats:

Try the tool

Before the enablement, you can try the current implementation of the tool in our testing instance. Once it is enabled on Icelandic Wikipedia, you’ll have access to https://is.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:ContentTranslation with your mobile device. You can select an article to translate, and machine translation will be provided as a starting point for editors to improve.

Provide feedback

Please provide feedback about Section translation in any of the formats you are most comfortable with. We want to hear about your impressions on:

  • The tool
  • What you think about our plans to enable it
  • Your ideas for improving the tool.

Thanks, and we look forward to your feedback and questions.

Reverting to Google as the default Machine Translation in Icelandic Wikipedia[breyta frumkóða]

Hello Friends!

A month ago, the WMF Language team set the Flores Machine Translation (MT) support as the default in your Wikipedia for a month's test period, which just ended.

So, we want to revert to the initial default Machine translation support for the Content translation tool in Icelandic Wikipedia unless there are objections from your community to retain the Flores as your default MT.

We will wait two weeks for your feedback in this thread on the above, and If there are no objections to reverting to the Google Translate, we will make the Google MT the default translation in your Content translation tool after the 25th of May, 2022.

Thank you so much, and we look forward to your feedback.

Revisions to the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement Guidelines[breyta frumkóða]

Hello all,

We'd like to provide an update on the work on the Enforcement Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct. After the conclusion of the community vote on the guidelines in March, the Community Affairs committee (CAC) of the Board asked that several areas of the guidelines be reviewed for improvements before the Board does its final review. These areas were identified based on community discussions and comments provided during the vote. The CAC also requested review of the controversial Note in 3.1 of the UCoC itself.

Once more, a big thank you to all who voted, especially to all who left constructive feedback and comments! The project team is working with the Board to establish a timeline for this work, and will communicate this next month.

Members of the two prior UCoC Drafting Committees have generously offered their time to help shape improvements to the Guidelines. You can read more about them and their work here, as well as read summaries of their weekly meetings in 2022.

Wikimedians have provided many valuable comments together with the vote and in other conversations. Given the size and diversity of the Wikimedia community, there are even more voices out there who can give ideas on how to improve the enforcement guidelines and add even more valuable ideas to the process. To help the Revisions committee identify improvements, input on several questions for the committee’s review is requested. Visit the Meta-wiki pages (Enforcement Guidelines revision discussions, Policy text revision discussions) to get your ideas to the Committee - it is very important that viewpoints are heard from different communities before the Committee begins drafting revision proposals.

Propose statements for the 2022 Election Compass[breyta frumkóða]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hi all,

Community members in the 2022 Board of Trustees election are invited to propose statements to use in the Election Compass.

An Election Compass is a tool to help voters select the candidates that best align with their beliefs and views. The community members will propose statements for the candidates to answer using a Lickert scale (agree/neutral/disagree). The candidates’ answers to the statements will be loaded into the Election Compass tool. Voters will use the tool by entering in their answer to the statements (agree/disagree/neutral). The results will show the candidates that best align with the voter’s beliefs and views.

Here is the timeline for the Election Compass
  • July 8 - 20: Community members propose statements for the Election Compass
  • July 21 - 22: Elections Committee reviews statements for clarity and removes off-topic statements
  • July 23 - August 1: Volunteers vote on the statements
  • August 2 - 4: Elections Committee selects the top 15 statements
  • August 5 - 12: candidates align themselves with the statements
  • August 15: The Election Compass opens for voters to use to help guide their voting decision

The Elections Committee will select the top 15 statements at the beginning of August. The Elections Committee will oversee the process, supported by the Movement Strategy and Governance team. MSG will check that the questions are clear, there are no duplicates, no typos, and so on.

Best,

Movement Strategy and Governance

The Vector 2022 skin as the default in two weeks?[breyta frumkóða]

The slides for our presentation at Wikimania 2022

Hello. I'm writing on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Web team. In two weeks, we would like to make the Vector 2022 skin the default on this wiki.

We have been working on it for the past three years. So far, it has been the default on more than 30 wikis, including sister projects, all accounting for more than 1 billion pageviews per month. On average 87% of active logged-in users of those wikis use Vector 2022.

It would become the default for all logged-out users, and also all logged-in users who currently use Vector legacy. Logged-in users can at any time switch to any other skins. No changes are expected for users of these skins.

About the skin[breyta frumkóða]

[Why is a change necessary] The current default skin meets the needs of the readers and editors as these were 13 years ago. Since then, new users have begun using Wikimedia projects. The old Vector doesn't meet their needs.

[Objective] The objective for the new skin is to make the interface more welcoming and comfortable for readers and useful for advanced users. It draws inspiration from previous requests, the Community Wishlist Surveys, and gadgets and scripts. The work helped our code follow the standards and improve all other skins. We reduced PHP code in Wikimedia deployed skins by 75%. The project has also focused on making it easier to support gadgets and use APIs.

[Changes and test results] The skin introduces a series of changes that improve readability and usability. The new skin does not remove any functionality currently available on the Vector skin.

  • The sticky header makes it easier to find tools that editors use often. It decreases scrolling to the top of the page by 16%.
  • The new table of contents makes it easier to navigate to different sections. Readers and editors jumped to different sections of the page 50% more than with the old table of contents. It also looks a bit different on talk pages.
  • The new search bar is easier to find and makes it easier to find the correct search result from the list. This increased the amount of searches started by 30% on the wikis we tested on.
  • The skin does not negatively affect pageviews, edit rates, or account creation. There is evidence of increases in pageviews and account creation across partner communities.

[Try it out] Try out the new skin by going to the appearance tab in your preferences and selecting Vector 2022 from the list of skins.

How can editors change and customize this skin?[breyta frumkóða]

It's possible to configure and personalize our changes. We support volunteers who create new gadgets and user scripts. Check out our repository for a list of currently available customizations, or add your own.

Our plan[breyta frumkóða]

If no large concerns are raised, we plan on deploying in the week of October 3, 2022. If your community would like to request more time to discuss the changes, hit the button and write to us. We can adjust the calendar.

If you'd like ask our team anything, if you have questions, concerns, or additional thoughts, please ping me here or write on the talk page of the project. We will gladly answer! Also, see our FAQ. Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 22. september 2022 kl. 04:15 (UTC)Reply[svara]

Há- eða lágstafur í lýsingu[breyta frumkóða]

Ætti að vera há- eða lágstafur í byrjun lýsingar á grein í snjalltæki? T.d. fyrir Sigga Sigurjóns gæti staðið "Íslenskur leikari" eða "íslenskur leikari".

Discograohy og filmography[breyta frumkóða]

Ég hef mikið flett í og skoðað discography og filmography á ensku wikipedíu. Á íslensku wikipedíu hefur ekki verið notast við svona stöðluð orð. En gaman væri að breyta því. Discography þýðist sem hljóðritaskrá en einnig hljómplötuskrá. Filmography þýðist sem kvikmyndalisti eða kvikmyndaskrá.

Hvernig lýst ykkur á þetta og eru aðrar tillögur? :)

Myndi segja að discography þýðist sem hljómplötuskrá, en tel að útgefið efni sé betra varðandi hvernig það er notað á wikipedia. Fyxi (spjall) 17. október 2022 kl. 21:12 (UTC)Reply[svara]

En discography er einmitt hugtak sem er notað útum allt á wikipedíu. Mér finnst að við ættum að reyna koma því í notkun á íslensku wikipedíu líka. Mér finnst útgefið efni einhvernveginn víðara og óljósara. Fyrir hljómsveit gæti það átt við meira en bara útgefna tónlist, eins og varning og fatnað. Og það er held ég eitthvað sem ætti ekki heima í sama flokki og útgefin tónlist. Cinquantecinq (spjall) 23. október 2022 kl. 12:33 (UTC)Reply[svara]

Update on Vector 2022[breyta frumkóða]

Screenshot Historia da moeda do Tíbet - 2022-09-22 - Vector 2022 scrolled.png

Hello. I'm sorry for not communicating in your language. I'll be grateful if you translated my message. I'm writing on behalf of the Web team working on the new skin, Vector 2022.

We wanted to apologize for the delays in the deployment of Vector 2022. We know many of you are waiting for this eagerly. We have been delaying the deployment because we have been working on the logos. It has taken us more time than originally expected. Once the logos are ready, we will let you know the exact date of deployment. We are planning for either the next (more likely) or the following week. If your wiki doesn't currently have a localized logo, we encourage you to reach out to us and we can help make one.

We invite you to get involved in the project. Contact us if you have any questions or need any help, particularly with the compatibility of gadgets and user scripts. Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 19. október 2022 kl. 23:24 (UTC)Reply[svara]

Common.css breyting[breyta frumkóða]

Á næstunni mun Melding:Common.css (sem geymir stílsnið fyrir þetta vefsvæði í heild sinni) færast að hluta til yfir á einstakar síður stílsniða, sem kallast TemplateStyles. Common.css mun með þessari aðgerð skiptist niður á margar minni síður. Sjá Wikipedia:Listi yfir CSS stíla til að sjá hvernig þessi skipting verður. Til þess að byrja með minnkar Common.css um helming.

Afhverju? Til þess að styðja við farsímasíðu wikipedia (is.m.wikipedia.org) þá er rétta leiðin að skipta common.css í minni einingar með templatestyles. Á farsímum skiptir gagnamagnið meira máli og með þessu minnka gögnin sem þarf að sækja frá hverri síðu fyrir sig. Þetta mun gera það að verkum að þegar notandinn sækir síðu er hún bara með þeim stílsniðum sem hún notar, en ekki öllum þeim stílsniðum sem eru á vefsvæðinu í heild sinni eins og nú er.

Báðar þessar villur koma frá heimildarsniðunum sjálfum.

Í síðunni um sýrlensku borgarstyrjöldina var verið að reyna að nota first gildi, sem er yfirleitt notað yfir manneskjur, yfir stofnun og first gildið er líka með tengil. Ef það á að nota tengil, þá er "author" gildið notað í staðinn. Síðan Sýrlenska borgarastyrjöldin hefur verið leiðrétt.
Sniðið Vefheimild notar líka CS1 sem einfandlega fjarlægir þessar úrfellingarkommur (lína 2633 í Module:Citation/CS1). Sá hluti síðunnar Hjálp:Heimildaskráning sem notar ekki heimildarsniðin og sýnir notkun útgefanda í heimild er ekki með skáletraðan útgefanda. Síðan hefur lengi vel sýnt hvernig íslensku sniðin vefheimild, bókarheimild, o.s.frv. virkuðu áður en CS1 var notað.
CS1 notar þennan heimildarstaðal en:Help:Citation Style 1 og það styður líka vancouver heimildar staðalinn, það er ekki hægt að nota það til að sýna aðra heimildarstíla. Snævar (spjall) 7. nóvember 2022 kl. 21:17 (UTC)Reply[svara]

Invitation to attend “Ask Me Anything about Movement Charter” Sessions[breyta frumkóða]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hello all,

During the 2022 Wikimedia Summit, the Movement Charter Drafting Committee (MCDC) presented the first outline of the Movement Charter, giving a glimpse on the direction of its future work, and the Charter itself. The MCDC then integrated the initial feedback collected during the Summit. Before proceeding with writing the Charter for the whole Movement, the MCDC wants to interact with community members and gather feedback on the drafts of the three sections: Preamble, Values & Principles, and Roles & Responsibilities (intentions statement). The Movement Charter drafts will be available on the Meta page here on November 14, 2022. Community wide consultation period on MC will take place from November 20 to December 18, 2022. Learn more about it here.

With the goal of ensuring that people are well informed to fully participate in the conversations and are empowered to contribute their perspective on the Movement Charter, three “Ask Me Anything about Movement Charter" sessions have been scheduled in different time zones. Everyone in the Wikimedia Movement is invited to attend these conversations. The aim is to learn about Movement Charter - its goal, purpose, why it matters, and how it impacts your community. MCDC members will attend these sessions to answer your questions and hear community feedback.

The “Ask Me Anything” sessions accommodate communities from different time zones. Only the presentation of the session is recorded and shared afterwards, no recording of conversations. Below is the list of planned events:

  • Asia/Pacific: November 4, 2022 at 09:00 UTC (your local time). Interpretation is available in Chinese and Japanese.
  • Europe/MENA/Sub Saharan Africa: November 12, 2022 at 15:00 UTC (your local time). Interpretation is available in Arabic, French and Russian.
  • North and South America/ Western Europe: November 12, 2022 at 15:00 UTC (your local time). Interpretation is available in Spanish and Portuguese.

On the Meta page you will find more details; Zoom links will be shared 48 hours ahead of the call.

Call for Movement Charter Ambassadors

Individuals or groups from all communities who wish to help include and start conversations in their communities on the Movement Charter are encouraged to become Movement Charter Ambassadors (MC Ambassadors). MC Ambassadors will carry out their own activities and get financial support for enabling conversations in their own languages. Regional facilitators from the Movement Strategy and Governance team are available to support applicants with MC Ambassadors grantmaking. If you are interested please sign up here. Should you have specific questions, please reach out to the MSG team via email: strategy2030@wikimedia.org or on the MS forum.

We thank you for your time and participation.

Vafasamar heimildir[breyta frumkóða]

Hef tekið eftir nokkrum vitlausum auðkennum á bókum og tímaritum (ISBN/ISSN o.þ.h.). Það er auðvelt að gera frumathugun á þessu, þar sem heimildarskriftan (Module:Citation/CS1) finnur atriði sem er í grundvallaratriðum vitlaus, án þess að athuga hvort auðkennið stemmi við titil. Hún athugar frekar hvort auðkennið geti verið til og annað slíkt. Ég skil að það er lítið mál að skrifa einn staf vitlaust í auðkennum og ég hef leiðrétt þau tilfelli (sem ég veit af), en síðan fer maður að velta þessu fyrir sér. Hversu vitlaus má heimildin vera?

Nefni nokkur tilfelli hérna fyrir neðan (á forminu grein: heimild: Athugasemd):

  • Neró: Champlin Edward. Nero: Vitlaus ISBN, tveir stafir vitlausir.
  • Altarisganga: Skúli Sigurður Ólafsson: Altarisganga: Inniheldur eingöngu miðjustafina í ISBN og segir að þær séu ISSN.
  • BMW: Nokkrar heimildir: Eru með tvær ISBN tölur á hverja heimild, sem gefur að kynna tvær útgáfur af sömu bók. Er hægt að trúa því að báðar útgáfurnar hafa verið lesnar?

ISBNs used to be 10 digits. They are now 13 digits (all 10 digit numbers, and indeed all 9 digit SBNs can be converted to 13 digits - the last character will usually be different, and there will be a 978 at the beginning). Many books therefore have two ISBNs. It's not clear what the best way to treat these is, though I prefer 13 digit only, certainly for books published since 1 January 2007.

Þýðingar á viðmóti MediaWiki - Bot/Robot[breyta frumkóða]

Sæl öll;

Ég hef lítið verið að blanda mér í skrif inn á íslensku Wikipedíuna, en hinsvegar sett upp ýmis MediaWiki-tilvik til sérhæfðra verka og þar með þurft að laga til þýðingar á skinnum og klára ýmsar þýðingar í MediaWiki. Ég reyni eftir bestu getu að halda mig sem mest við það orðfæri sem áður hefur verið notað af ykkur þessum hagvönu á þessum lendum, en auðvitað þarf stundum að laga það sem betur má fara.

Ég er svosem að þýða margt fleira (t.d. OSM, Commons og farsímaforrit þeim tengd) auk ýmissa samskiptaforrita/kerfa á borð við Matrix/Element, Signal, Telegram og Mastodon.

Núna allt í einu er farið að rigna inn athugasemdum varðandi ýmsar þýðingar í Mastodon (ja, hvers vegna skyldi það nú vera) og er sú sem mest eru gerðar athugasemdir við er þýðingin á orðinu 'Bot/Robot' sem hér á MediaWiki var afgreidd sem 'Vélmenni'.

Sjá má umræðuna hér: https://crowdin.com/translate/mastodon/52/en-is#4452

'Vélmenni' finnst fólki vísa í vélknúna eftirlíkingu af mannskepnu, svipað því sem við köllum þjarka. Vissulega var stungið upp á að nota orðið 'þjarki' eða 'þjarkur' en hvort tveggja virðist vísa of mikið í þessa vélvirkni, sem á varla við í hugbúnaði sem þessum. Ég stakk upp á 'Forskrift' (sem er náttúrulega það sem þetta er í rauninni) en það er eiginlega of opið.

Færð voru rök fyrir að nota einfaldlega 'Yrki' sem er gamalt orð yfir 'að starfa'; jarðyrkja, öryrki ofl. eru afleidd orð. Þá yrðu til í leiðinni orð eins og 'hópayrki' (group bot) og 'nafnayrki' (name bot).

Hvað finnst ykkur Wikipedíufólkinu um þetta orð? Og er ástæða til að hræra í þessu?

Hi everyone! The Ombuds commission (OC) and the Case Review Committee (CRC) are looking for members. People are encouraged to nominate themselves or encourage others they feel would contribute to these groups to do so. There is more information below about the opportunity and the skills that are needed.

About the Ombuds commission

The Ombuds commission (OC) works on all Wikimedia projects to investigate complaints about violations of the privacy policy, especially in use of CheckUser and Oversight (also known as Suppression) tools. The Commission mediates between the parties of the investigation and, when violations of the policies are identified, advises the Wikimedia Foundation on best handling. They may also assist the General Counsel, the Chief Executive Officer, or the Board of Trustees of the Foundation in these investigations when legally necessary. For more on the OC's duties and roles, see Ombuds commission on Meta-Wiki.

Volunteers serving in this role should be experienced Wikimedians, active on any project, who have previously used the CheckUser/Oversight tools OR who have the technical ability to understand these tools and the willingness to learn them. They must be able to communicate in English, the common language of the commission. They are expected to be able to engage neutrally in investigating these concerns and to know when to recuse when other roles and relationships may cause conflict. Commissioners will serve two-year terms (note that this is different from past years, when the terms have been for one year).

About the Case Review Committee

The Case Review Committee (CRC) reviews appeals of eligible Trust & Safety office actions. The CRC is a critical layer of oversight to ensure that Wikimedia Foundation office actions are fair and unbiased. They also make sure the Wikimedia Foundation doesn’t overstep established practices or boundaries. For more about the role, see Case Review Committee on Meta-Wiki.

We are looking for current or former functionaries and experienced volunteers with an interest in joining this group. Applicants must be fluent in English (additional languages are a strong plus) and willing to abide by the terms of the Committee charter. If the work resonates and you qualify, please apply. Committee members will serve two-year terms (note that this is different from past years, when the terms have been for one year).

Applying to join either of these groups

Members are required to sign the Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information and must be willing to comply with the appropriate Wikimedia Foundation board policies (such as the access to non-public information policy and the Foundation privacy policy). These positions requires a high degree of discretion and trust. Members must also be over 18 years of age.

If you are interested in serving in either capacity listed above, please write in English to the Trust and Safety team at ca(_AT_)wikimedia.org (to apply to the OC) or to the Legal Team at legal(_AT_)wikimedia.org (to apply to the CRC) with information about:

  • Your primary projects
  • Languages you speak/write
  • Any experience you have serving on committees, whether movement or non-movement
  • Your thoughts on what you could bring to the OC or CRC if appointed
  • Any experience you have with the Checkuser or Oversight tools (OC only)
  • Any other information you think is relevant

The deadline for applications is 31 December 2022 in any timezone.

Please feel free to pass this invitation along to any users who you think may be qualified and interested. Thank you!

On behalf of the Committee Support team,

Greinar um Ísland sem eru á erlendum Wikipedía síðum en ekki íslensku[breyta frumkóða]

Er hægt að leita að greinum um Ísland sem eru á erlendum Wikipedía síðum en ekki íslensku (eins og ég segi í fyrirsögninni) líkt og rætt var um hér. Ég reyndi að gera það hér en náði ekki að segja 'without iswiki link'. Steinninn 21. nóvember 2022 kl. 19:37 (UTC)Reply[svara]

Ekki gerði ég mér grein fyrir að þetta væri svona mikill fjöldi. Haha. --Steinninn 24. nóvember 2022 kl. 10:28 (UTC)Reply[svara]

Sjávarþorp og þéttbýlisstaður[breyta frumkóða]

er Flokkur:Íslensk sjávarþorp og Flokkur:Þéttbýlisstaðir Íslands það sama? Sýnist mikið af þessu vera endurtekningar, sem sagt að greinar eru í báðum flokkum. Steinninn 24. nóvember 2022 kl. 10:30 (UTC)Reply[svara]
