Inspire Campaign: Improving diversity, improving content[breyta | 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 | 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 | 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 | 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.

Please contact me if you need further help though. Happy editing, User:Elitre (WMF) (talk) 30. mars 2015 kl. 15:09 (UTC)

Stewards confirmation rules[breyta | 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 | 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 | 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 | 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)
