Inspire Campaign: Improving diversity, improving content[breyta frumkóða]

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!

Tillaga: common.js/css kóðabreytingar[breyta frumkóða]

Ég legg til hér með eftirfarandi breytingar á MediaWiki:common.js og MediaWiki:common.css síðunum. Það eina sem þessar breytingar eiga sameiginlegt er að þær eru á sömu síðunum og að þetta séu breytingar sem ýmist er þegar búið að breyta á öðrum wikipedium eða er fyrirhugað að breyta þar í framtíðinni. Þessar tvær síður hafa úrelda fídusa og tilgangurinn með þessari tillögu er að skipta þeim fídusum út.

Dynamic navigation bars

  • Einn af tveimur fídusum sem gerir sniðum kleift að fela/sýna innihald þeirra.
  • Breyting: Eiginda gildin "NavToggle" og "NavFrame" fá minna hlutverk. Þeir verða áfram til staðar sem stílsnið en munu ekki hafa þau áhrif að fela/sýna lista. Eiginda gildin "mw-collapsible" og "mw-collapsed" verður bætt við þau snið til að fela/sýna efni sniða, en þau eru innifalin í MediaWiki hugbúnaðinum. Fyrir nánari upplýsingar um hvernig þetta nýja kerfi virkar, sjáðu mw:Manual:Collapsible elements.
  • Sýnileg áhrif: autocollapse möguleikinn, þar sem efni sniða er opið þegar síðan er sótt ef annað snið er opið, hættir að virka. Annars er engin breyting.

Collapsible tables

  • Einn af tveimur fídusum sem gerir sniðum kleift að fela/sýna innihald þeirra.
  • Breyting: Eginda gildin "collapseButton" og "collapseTable" verða fjarlægð og CSS stílsnið þeirra fært yfir á "mw-collapsible" og "mw-collapsed". Eginda gildin "mw-collapsible" og "mw-collapsed" verða notuð í staðinn til að fela/sýna efni sniða, en þau eru innifalin í MediaWiki hugbúnaðinum. Fyrir nánari upplýsingar um hvernig þetta nýja kerfi virkar, sjáðu mw:Manual:Collapsible elements.
  • Sýnileg áhrif: autocollapse möguleikinn, þar sem efni sniða er opið þegar síðan er sótt ef annað snið er opið, hættir að virka. Annars er engin breyting.

Upload link

  • Breytir upphölunar tenglinum í hliðarstikunni á Wikipedia:Hlaða inn
  • Breyting: Taka út. Stilling í hugbúnaðinum (undir mw:Manual:$wgUploadNavigationUrl) verður notuð í staðinn.
  • Sýnileg áhrif: Engin

Topicons

  • Stílsnið til að sýna merki hliðiná titli síðunnar. Notað fyrir snið gæðagreina, úrvalsgreina og verndaðra síðna.
  • Breyting: Fjarlægð úr common.css. Sniðin munu nota mw:Help:Page status indicators í staðinn. Með "Status indicators" þarf ekki að tilgreina nákvæma staðsetningu innihalds sniðanna eins og nú er.
  • Sýnileg áhrif: Merkin verða hægrimiðuð við titil síðunnar (í Vector þemanu), í stað þess að vera beint á eftir titlinum eins og þau eru núna.

hlist

  • Stílsnið fyrir lárétta lista
  • Breyting: Fjarlægð úr common.css. Sniðin sem nota eginda gildið hlist munu nota gildið mediawiki.hlist í staðinn.
  • Sýnileg áhrif: Engin. CSS kóði þessara stílsniða eru nákvæmlega eins.

IE scroll fix

  • Lagfæring á skrun galla í Internet Explorer (IE 7-9)
  • Breyting: Fjarlægð úr Common.js/IEFixes. Það er eingin þörf á þessum kóða, því að lagfæring á þessu er í mediawiki hugbúnaðinum, sjá phabricator:T34241.
  • Sýnileg áhrif: Engin.

HiddenStructure

  • Úreld aðferð til að fela efni með CSS stílsniði
  • Breyting: Fjarlægð úr common.css og þáttunar aðgerðir notaðar í staðinn.
  • Sýnileg áhrif: Falda efnið verður falið jafnvel á vöfrum sem styðja ekki CSS.

--Snaevar (spjall) 8. mars 2015 kl. 00:57 (UTC)

hversu mikla handavinnu þarf til að aðlaga núverandi síður/snið að þessum breytingum? --Akigka (spjall)
Í heildina eru þetta 158 breytingar og meirihlutinn af þeim, 133 breytingar fara í "Dynamic navigation bars".--Snaevar (spjall) 21. mars 2015 kl. 00:27 (UTC)
Er hægt að gera eitthvað af þessu með bott? eða alla vega merkja þær síður sem þarf að breyta? Annars líst mér vel á breytinguna í heild sinni. --Akigka (spjall) 25. mars 2015 kl. 10:16 (UTC)
Já, pywikipediabot getur tekið "Dynamic navigation bars" með replace.py skriftunni og mig grunar að AWB (Auto Wiki browser) geti einnig gert verkefnið, en þú ættir að spurja Jabba því ég þekki AWB ekki nógu vel til að segja til um það. Ég hef þó engin áform um að gera þetta með einhverjum botta.
Útskiptingarnar fyrir þann hluta eru svona:
  • "NavFrame" -> "NavFrame mw-collapsible"
  • "NavContent" -> "NavContent mw-collapsible-content"
Listi yfir þær síður sem nota "Dynamic naviagation bars": tengill.--Snaevar (spjall) 4. apríl 2015 kl. 20:12 (UTC)

Feedback request: VisualEditor's special character inserter[breyta frumkóða]

I apologize for writing in English. Please translate this message so that all of your editors can read it. Thank you!

Hi everybody, my name is Erica, and I am a Community Liaison at the Wikimedia Foundation. I'm writing to you because the Editing team at WMF wants to know what you think about VisualEditor and its new Sérstafur tool. This change will affect all users on about 50 Wikipedias, including your Wikipedia. Many editors at these Wikipedias need a special character tool to be able to write articles correctly, which is why we are asking you now.

The new special character inserter tool is available in VisualEditor now. Admins at your wiki can change the contents by following the directions at mediawiki.org.

Screenshot from VisualEditor that shows the special character inserter
New design for the special character inserter. The red arrow points to the button for the tool, which is marked with Ω (omega).

To test the Sérstafur tool, please:

  1. Opt-in to VisualEditor by going to Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-betafeatures and choosing "VisualEditor". Save your preferences.
  2. Edit any article or your user page in VisualEditor by clicking on the new "Breyta" tab at the top of the page. See the mw:Help:VisualEditor/User guide for information on how to use VisualEditor.
  3. Please post your comments and the language(s) that you tested at the feedback thread on Mediawiki.org. The developers would like to know what you think about this new design. It is important that they hear from as many editors as possible. You may leave your comments in any language.

When the special character tool has been refined a little more based on your thoughts, we will offer VisualEditor by default to all editors at this wiki. If you want to help prepare, please read the advice on mediawiki.org.

Thank you, Elitre (WMF) (talk) 12. mars 2015 kl. 18:33 (UTC)

VisualEditor coming to this wiki[breyta frumkóða]

VisualEditor-logo.svg

Hello again. Please excuse the English. I would be grateful if you can translate this message!

VisualEditor is coming to all editors at this Wikipedia on Monday, March 30th. VisualEditor is software that allows people to edit articles without needing to learn wikitext code (like typing [[ to start a link). You don't have to wait until the deployment to test it; you can test VisualEditor right now. To turn it on, select "Beta" in your preferences. Choose "VisualEditor" and click save.

Now, when you press the "Breyta" button to edit an article, you will get the new VisualEditor software. To use the wikitext editor, you can press "Breyta frumkóða". (After the deployment, everyone will automatically have the option to use either VisualEditor or the current wikitext editor.) For more information about how to use VisualEditor, see mw:Help:VisualEditor/User guide.

More information about preparing for VisualEditor is posted here.

  • It's easier to add templates if you've added TemplateData instructions to them.
  • Please help translate the pages about VisualEditor here and on MediaWiki.org, and its user interface. See VisualEditor TranslationCentral for general information. To translate the user guide, go to the MediaWiki.org page, and select "Þýða þessa síðu". Your language should be available from the drop-down menu on the right. Once you've done this, you'll see the document in English side by side with any translation work already done in your language. You can add new translations or change old translations. To translate the user interface, you need to create an account at translatewiki.net. Contact me personally if you need help with that.
  • We need your help to improve the software! Please let us know if you find any problems. You can report issues in Phabricator, the new bug tracking system or on the central feedback page on MediaWiki.org. If you notice major issues affecting your project, please leave a note on my talk page. If it's an emergency (like an unexpected bug causing widespread problems), reach out to James Forrester, the Product Manager, at jforrester@wikimedia.org or on IRC in the #mediawiki-visualeditor channel.

Stewards confirmation rules[breyta frumkóða]

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

Nominations are being accepted for 2015 Wikimedia Foundation elections[breyta frumkóða]

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[breyta frumkóða]

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,

Freedom of Panorama: article missing[breyta frumkóða]

The European Parliament as result of no Freedom of Panorama

Hello! In the coming days there will be much media attention for the subject Freedom of Panorama, as it is under discussion in the European Parliament. Freedom of Panorama is one of the keystones Wikipedia is built on: being able to take a picture of a public place and use it freely, like on Wikipedia. Iceland has Freedom of Panorama, but only for non-commercial use only. This surprised me, such a progressive and free country in many ways, but not in this field, while the other Scandinavian countries have Freedom of Panorama. This is sad, because now we can't show the Icelandic culture on most Wikipedias. Also the Icelandic Wikipedia has no article about this subject and people can't read in their own language what it is about. So my question is if someone can translate Freedom of Panorama to Icelandic, the whole article or only the first section. Thank you! Romaine (spjall) 29. júní 2015 kl. 09:08 (UTC)

I'd love to but admit that I'm unsure what to name the Icelandic article... myndfrelsi? --Akigka (spjall) 29. júní 2015 kl. 10:47 (UTC)

Please join the 2nd edition of the VisualEditor Translathon[breyta frumkóða]

VisualEditor-logo-pacifico.svg

Hello!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks for your attention, and happy translating!
Elitre (WMF) 13. júlí 2015 kl. 20:56 (UTC)

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

Proposal to create PNG thumbnails of static GIF images[breyta frumkóða]

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 (spjall) 24. júlí 2015 kl. 05:07 (UTC)

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

(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:

Citoid: virkja eða ekki?[breyta frumkóða]

Citoid er möguleiki í Visual editor sem sækir upplýsingar um heimild, eftir að notandinn hefur gefið upp vefslóð eða eitt af auðkennunum DOI, PMID eða PMCID. Segjum sem svo að einhver setji inn DOI auðkenni fyrir tímarit. Þá sækir Citoid höfund tímaritsins, titil tímaritsins, útgefanda, útgáfudag og tölublað. Þessar upplýsingar setur Citoid í heimildarsnið og birtir í breytingarglugganum.

Ég hef tvær spurningar.

  1. Ætti að virkja Citoid hérna ?
  2. Hvaða heimildasnið ætti Citoid að nota ?

Athugaðu að Citoid getur ekki notað fleiri en fimm snið. Það væri líka sniðugt að hafa margvísleg heimildasnið, þ.e. eitt vefheimildar snið, eitt tímaritasnið, o.s.frv. --Snaevar (spjall) 15. ágúst 2015 kl. 11:49 (UTC)

Estimataj kolegoj! Antaŭ ĉio mi deziras pardonpeti, ke mi ne komprenas la islandan lingvon. Mi ŝatus ekscii, kial la supre-menciita politikisto havas du patronomojn. Kion tio signifas? Kiel mi komprenis ĉe mbl.is (per Google-tradukilo), liaj gepatroj estis Guðmundur Magnússon kaj Margrét Guðmundsdóttir. Do, Guðmundsson estas patronomo. Sed kio estas Ívarsson? Уважаемые коллеги! Прежде всего я хочу извиниться за то, что я не понимаю по-исландски. Я хотел бы узнать, почему у вышеупомянутого политика два отчества. Что это означает? Насколько я понял на mbl.is (при помощи Google-переводчика), его родители были Guðmundur Magnússon и Margrét Guðmundsdóttir. Таким образом, Guðmundsson — это отчество. Но что такое Ívarsson? Dear colleagues! Firstly, I want to apologize since I do not understand the Icelandic language. I would like to know, why the above-mentioned politician has two patronymics. What does it mean? As I understood at mbl.is (with Google translator), his parents were Guðmundur Magnússon and Margrét Guðmundsdóttir. So, Guðmundsson is a patronymic. But what is Ívarsson?

Icelandic literature guest at book fair in Göteborg[breyta frumkóða]

The Wikimedia Sverige stand at last year's book fair in Göteborg. This year too we're gonna do many things at the fair.

Hi! I live in Göteborg, Sweden, and I'm active with the Swedish language Wikipedia and its support organisation. This year, Hungarian and Icelandic literature will be in focus at the Göteborg Book Fair (100,000 visitors). This means a lot of Hungarian writers will visit Göteborg, the last week of September.

Me and a couple of my Swedish Wikipedia colleagues will be at the fair, with our cameras. We've started a project page, listing the invited writers, with links to their often non-written articles in Swedish (they will at least be started during the month of September), writers that already have photos at Wikimedia Commons and those that do not. And this very week we have a weekly contest devoted to Hungary and Iceland.

Maybe you would be interested to know how this annual project (we started in 2013 with Romania and continued in 2014 with Brazil och Catalonia) develops? If your have any questions regarding the project or advice to us regarding the writers/photos, please go ahead. Maybe we can do something for you. You can write questions/advice on our project discussion page (in English or Scandinavian) or on my own svwp discussion page (in English, Scandinavian and some other languages).

Translation into Icelandic[breyta frumkóða]

Hi! I want to have my userpage and my profile translated in different languages, the maximum of languages possible, and one of them is Icelandic. So can you translate these three sentences into Icelandic, please?

Hello, I’m Josep Maria Roca Peña and I’m 20 years old.
I’m from Barcelona, Catalonia, so I’m Catalan and I hope for an independent Catalonia. I also speak Spanish and Portuguese too, because I have been in Portugal for a while. I especially like these three series: Star Trek, Code Lyoko and Winx Club, and I have wikis of these series in several languages.
If you want I do a translation or correction in Flag of Catalonia.svg, Flag of Spain.svg, Flag of Portugal.svg, Flag of Galicia.svg, Flag of Italy.svg or Flag of Occitania.svg, leave me a message with your request and I’ll do it, only you have to write a message in my Message Wall.

I translated quickly, someone could review and has my permission to fix. Skip the brackets (except maybe adding "sjónvarps" in front, without space, that means TV), those are usually alternatives/trivia information/literal translation. At first I thought there was more to translate and wrote..: You can use Google translate. It will not be good. It's a start, and sometimes Google Translate is surprisingly good.. At least makes easier for someone to finish the job..
Hæ, ég heiti[er] Josep Maria Roca Peña og ég er 20 ára ["gamall" formal to include that, same as "old", not wrong but usually skipped.].
Ég er frá Barselóna, Katalóníu [Icelandic no longer has C, sometimes exceptions are made (similarly Z was dropped but see both versions of Zimbabwe).. Note when you click the names for the usual form, the endings you see are right in this context, there are many forms..), svo ég er katalónskur og vonast eftir sjálfstæðri Katalóníu. Ég tala líka spænsku og portúgölsku líka, því ég hef verið í portúgal um hríð. Mér líkar sérstakleg við þessar [sjónvarps]seríur: Star Trek, Code Lyoko og Winx Club, og ég er með wiki [?] um þessar seríur á mörgum tungumálum.
Ef þú vilt þýða eða lagfæra Flag of Catalonia.svg, Flag of Spain.svg, Flag of Portugal.svg, Flag of Galicia.svg, Flag of Italy.svg eða Flag of Occitania.svg, skildu þá eftir skilaboð með beiðni þinni og ég mun gera það, þú þarft bara að skrifa skilaboð á vegginn minn.

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

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!

Zuism[breyta frumkóða]

Hello, and sorry for posting in (bad) english, but my islandic would had been far worse. And sorry too if that's not where to ask.
I wanted to write a short Le saviez-vous ? (Did you know ? on the french wikipédia) about the rise of Zuism in Iceland. It's stated in many press articles that this religion had been acknowledeged in 2013, but i've not been able to find the exact day yet. It may be here or here since it certainly is a political decision (because it involve tax paying), but since those websites are in Icelandic, I can't use them. Thanks for any help.

The religion/"organization" had only tree members in the year 2014, according to the government[1] (at the bottom of the page, in fact there is a smaller one, Endurfædd Kristin kirkja (Reborn Christ church) with a single person, and Sæbólssókn with one but that is deceiving as "-sókn" means a parish and it's a local part of the state church). This news article pointed to this news article that says: "Lög sem sett voru í fyrra um trúfélög heimila aðeins skráningu á trúarbrögðum sem hafa fleiri en 25 lögráða einstakling skráða í félagið." (Law that took effect the year before allow only registration of religions with more that 25 member [and thus, from the title of the article, "The most mysterious religion will be delisted soon. But it didn't happen..). The law is actually here, and oddly enough there is a at least one version per year, far back (but I only thought it had changed a while ago, earlier than 15. September.. and infrequently before). The law, now covers, religins and "lífsskoðunarfélög" (humanistic? literally life-examination-organization) equally.

Wikimania 2016: call for proposals is open![breyta frumkóða]

Dear Wiki[p,m]edians,
the call for proposals for Wikimania 2016 is open! All the members of the Wikimedia projects, researchers and observers are invited to propose a critical issue to be included in the programme of the conference, which will be held in Italy, in Esino Lario, from June 21 to 28.
Through this call we only accept what we call critical issues, i.e. proposals aiming at presenting problems, possible solutions and critical analysis about Wikimedia projects and activities in 18 minutes. These proposals do not need to target newbies, and they can assume attendees to already have a background knowledge on a topic (community, tech, outreach, policies...).
To submit a presentation, please refer to the Submissions page on the Wikimania 2016 website. Deadline for submitting proposals is 7th January 2016 and the selection of these proposals will be through a blind peer-reviewed process. Looking forward to your proposals. --Yiyi (spjall) 19. desember 2015 kl. 09:52 (UTC)

The Icelanders' outlook on foreign languages (besides English)[breyta frumkóða]

Hello from me again.

This time I have this question that kept me thinking for some time. The Icelanders, as far as I know, are under half a million people. They are not residing on a colony, but a sovereign state. They are therefore independent, with the exception of having good relations with other foreign countries (especially Nordic).

My question is, how do such a small number of people mobilize/organize/individualize themselves on what concerns, for instance, ALL scientific topics and knowledge? To me, relatively/proportionately speaking [verhoudingsgewys], the less the number of people of a particular folk (volk/ethnic group), logically, the more versatile they have (in fact, NEED!) to be.

To simplify things, let's scale the question down even more, and focus only on languages [being the vehicle of foreign knowledge and insights, not yet translated into e.g. world languages such as English].

  1. Is there some sort of national organization recognizing and recommending certain languages? For instance: "OK, dear Icelanders, we have a shortage of people knowing Italian, Russian and Korean... who would want to opt for these?"
  2. Or, is it just like "We need to know as much languages as possible! I, Hildur, need to study Greek and Hebrew; along with my English, German, and maybe Dutch. Oh, yes, and perhaps Spanish. No, rather Italian. Perhaps not, Latin has much more books in the public domain. Damn, when will I have time for all of these?!" Jules Verne, even though he hasn't set foot on Iceland, portrayed the Icelanders as multilingual by nature (and aggressive bibliomaniacs, emptying a library in seconds!).
  3. Or, is it more like: "We only need to study topics that might be relevant for Iceland."

There is multiple reasons for asking this question, but I'm merely thinking about smaller ethnic groups that might want to use the same "organization" - such as the Celtic, or, in fact, any minority language group wanting to be more self-efficient. If (unknown) knowledge (but also money, or any other unique cultural meaning worldwide) is added to a language (group), automatically that language has more prestige.

Thanking you, Suidpunt (spjall) 22. desember 2015 kl. 11:39 (UTC)

Happy Public Domain Day 2016![breyta frumkóða]

Logo Public Domain Day

Feel free to translate this message in your language!

On January 1 we celebrate Public Domain Day as many works of authors who died 70+ years ago now enter the public domain and can be used freely.

Let us be aware: copyright is temporary. It only lasts during the authors lifetime and 70 years afterwards (in most countries). During those years it is limiting Wikipedia and her sister projects in showing works of art, literature, public art and buildings in countries without freedom of panorama, and more in the articles. But now a new batch is freed from copyrights!

An overview of images and texts that are restored or added to the Wikimedia Commons, are collected on: this page.

Many of these files still need a place in articles. You can help!

You can also help by uploading new files of subjects that are freed of copyrights.
You can also help by tagging all requests for deletion pages with the category when the file can be restored, which will be/was deleted.

As I follow the log of restored files this week, more images and texts will follow. If still files or texts are missing in the list, let me know or add them yourselves.

A very happy Public Domain Day! Romaine (spjall) 4. janúar 2016 kl. 12:34 (UTC)

2016 WMF Strategy consultation[breyta frumkóða]

Please help translate to your language

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 (spjall) 18. janúar 2016 kl. 19:07 (UTC)

Aktívismi og aktívisti[breyta frumkóða]

Um daginn setti ég inn grein sem ég kallaði Neytendaaktívismi. Einn úr stjórnendaráði vefjarins gerði athugasemd við notkun mína á orðunum aktívismi og aktívisti og breytti þeim í kjölfarið í aðgerðarstefnu og aðgerðarsinna. Eg tel að Aktívistum sé hér ruglað saman við aðgerðarsinna og aktívisma sé ruglað saman við aðgerðarstefnu. Mig langar að fá skipulagða og greinargóða umræðu um þetta efni.

Rökstuðningur[breyta frumkóða]

Aktívismi ≠ aðgerðarstefna[breyta frumkóða]

  • Aktívismi er allt frá því að hvetja til hugarfarsbreytinga yfir í að hvetja til aðgerða.
  • Aðgerðarstefna hvetur til aðgerða.

Aktívisti ≠ aðgerðarsinni[breyta frumkóða]

  • Aktívisti er allt frá því að vera hlynntur ákveðinni hugarfarsbreytingu yfir í að vera í framlínu aðgerða.
  • Aðgerðarsinni er sá sem vill ganga lengra margir aktívistar. Aðgerðarsinninn vill hreinar og klárar skipulagðar aðgerðir.

Nánar[breyta frumkóða]

Ég er á því að það megi ekki falla í þá gryfju að rugla þessum hugtökum saman því það getur valdið miklum misskilningi meðal þeirra sem lesa greinarnar sem getur svo smitast út í misskilning við lestur greina í fræðitímaritum eða bókum. Þó svo Wikipedia sé skilgreind sem óáreiðanleg heimild í skólaumhverfi þá skulum við samt reyna að hafa hana eins rétta og kostur er þar sem almenna samfélagið treystir á að upplýsingarnar séu réttar. Einhver kann að kalla það kverúlantaskap og einhvers konar menntasnobb að vilja nota hugtakið aktívisma en þar sem hárrétt þýðing virðist ekki vera til á íslensku þá er okkur ekki stætt á því að birta greinar með þessari þýðingu sem hér liggur til grundvallar. Sem sagt, aktívismi er regnhlífarhugtak þar sem meðal annars má finna aðgerðarstefnu og þar af leiðir að aktívisti er regnhlífarhugtak sem nær meðal annars yfir aðgerðarsinna.

Ég tel óvarlegt að vísa í fyrri ákvarðanir og greinar þar sem Wikipedia er síbreytilegt samvinnuverkefni og í stöðugri endurskoðun. Umræðan fór af stað hér Ást og friður.

Hallur Guðmundsson (spjall) 25. janúar 2016 kl. 14:52 (UTC)

Ég er víst sá sem er sekur um að hafa gert þessa athugasemd svo ég vil bæta hér við þeim fáu upplýsingum sem ég hef fundið sem hægt væri að nota til að taka afstöðu til þess hvort íslensk stafsetning á orðinu activism sé notað, það er aktívismi, í þessu tilfelli neytendaaktívismi eða hvort ástæða sé til að nota neytendaaðgerðarstefna og þá neytendaaðgerðarsinni.
Á þessari spjallsíðu um Mótmælin á Íslandi í kjölfar efnahagskreppunnar 2008 má sjá að ekki voru allir sammála um að aktívisti og aðgerðarsinni væri það sama.
Aðeins eitt dæmi um íslenska þýðingu á hugtakinu activism finn ég í Hugtakasafni þýðingamiðstöðvar utanríkisráðuneytisins og er það þýðing á enska hugtakinu judicial activism (tengill á ensku síðuna á WP) og þar er það þýtt sem lagaleg aðgerðastefna sjá hér. Þetta er þó aðeins eitt dæmi um þýðingu opinbers aðila á hugtakinu activism sem aðgerðastefna frekar en að nota enska orðið með íslenskri stafsetningu. Því er til opinbert fordæmi en þó aðeins eitt sem ég finn.
Þótt það sé engin vísindi í sjálfu sér þá gerði ég einfalda Google leit og fann ekkert dæmi um hugtakið neytendaaktívismi né í tveimur orðum neytenda aktívismi nema í þessari grein sem um ræðir. En heldur ekki neytendaaðgerðarstefna, hvorki í einu né tveimur orðum nema á þessarri sömu síðu.
Því er spurning hvort hérna sé á ferðinni nýyrði (í báðum tilfellum) sem er almennt ekki í verkahring wp að búa til, sem þó þyrfti að taka afstöðu til svo greinin geti heitið íslensku nafni sem er jú það sem við gerum kröfu til þótt undantekningar séu einnig til en þá þarf að sýna fram á afhverju með gildandi rökum að mínu áliti. Bragi H (spjall) 25. janúar 2016 kl. 15:37 (UTC)
þess ber reyndar að geta að innan fræðigreina ýmiskonar eru svo kallaðir "ismar" viðurkennd hugtök og ég sé ekkert að því að nota nota það orðalag hér á WP að því gefnu að gerðar séu greinar með útskýringum á hugtakinu fyrir þá sem ekki eru vissir um þýðingu þeirra. Ég held að við verðum að sýna fræðigreinum þá virðingu að notast við hugtökin þeirra en þó - eins og ég sagði hér að framan - að hugtök eigi sér skýringasíður.
