५०,००० लेखांनतर १ वर्ष[संपादन]
२२ डिसेंबर, २०१७ रोजी मराठी विकिपीडियाने ५०,००० लेखांचा टप्पा ओलांडला. आज एक वर्षाने येथे ५२,२५० लेख आहेत म्हणजे महिन्याला अंदाजे २०४ लेखांची भर पडली.
याशिवाय संपादकांच्या संख्येतसुद्धा मोठी वाढ झालेली आहे. या साठी सर्वांचे अभिनंदन.
वरील प्रगतीबरोबरच अनेक इतर गोष्टीही झाल्या आहेत - काही चांगल्या, काही वाईट. यांबद्दल प्रत्येकाने आत्मपरीक्षण करावे आणि योग्य ते बदल करावे ही विनंती.
पुन्हा एकदा अभिनंदन आणि आपल्या पुढील वाटचालीसाठी शुभेच्छा.

Coming soon: Improved version of the FileExporter[संपादन]
Hi! For a few months now, the FileExporter has been a beta feature on this wiki (and a few others). It makes it possible to move a file from a local wiki to Wikimedia Commons, while keeping its history intact.
A new version of the feature will be deployed on January 16, including some bug fixes and added features. With this new version, the FileExporter will also become a beta feature on all other wikis.
As always, you’re very invited to test it and let us know what you think. This helps us further improve the feature before it becomes a default functionality. A big thanks to everyone who gave feedback so far! -- Best, Johanna Strodt (WMDE) (चर्चा) १६:२८, १४ जानेवारी २०१९ (IST)

कृपया आपल्या भाषेत भाषांतर करण्यास मदत करा
The Editing team has been working on two things for people who use the visual editor on the mobile site:
- mw:VisualEditor on mobile/Section editing: It should make it easy to make small changes to long articles.
- a loading overlay: to tell people that the editor is still loading. (Sometimes, if the editor is slow to start, then people think it crashed.)
Some editors here can see these changes now. Others will see them later. If you find problems, please leave a note on my talk page, so I can help you contact the team. Thank you, and happy editing! Whatamidoing (WMF) (चर्चा) ०९:४३, १ एप्रिल २०१९ (IST)

भारतातील समुदायांच्या मदतीसाठी[संपादन]
जगभरातील अनेक संस्था, व्यक्ति, गट, स्वयंसेवक आणि या सर्वांच्या जाळ्यांच्या मदतीने विकिमिडीयाचे सर्व प्रकल्प उभे रहातात आणि सांभाळले जातात. आपण सगळे एकत्र येऊन विकिमिडीयाच्या प्रकल्पांना वाढवूयात समृद्ध करुयात आणि विकिमिडीयाचे मुक्त ज्ञानाची मोहिम पुढे नेऊयात.
तुम्ही अफिलियेशन कमिटीच्या विकिमिडीया इंडिया विभागाला बरखास्त करण्याच्या निर्णयाबद्दल ऐकलेच असेल. काही समुदायांनी त्यावर भारतातील विकिमिडीया समुदायांच्या भवितव्याबद्दल प्रश्न उभे केले आहेत. अफिलियेशन समितीच्या निर्णयाबद्दल जास्तीची माहिती देण्याच्या हेतुने आम्ही हे लिहित आहोत, शिवाय आम्ही भारतातील समुदायांना आमची मदत चालू ठेवण्याचीही हमी आम्ही देत आहोत.
अफिलियेशन कमिटी ही समुदायातील काही सदस्यांची बनलेली असते. या कमिटीच्या माध्यमातून विकिमिडीया भारत बरोबर काम करताना आणि विकिमिडीया भारत विभागाला (chapter requirements) नियमांशी ताडून बघताना, जुन २०१९ मध्ये असा निर्णय घेतला की, विकिमिडीया प्रतिष्ठान विकिमिडीया भारत विभागाशी असलेला कराराचे नुतनिकरण करणार नाही.
२०११ मध्ये सर्वप्रथम विकिमिडीया भारत विभागाची स्थापना करण्यात आली होती. २०१५ मध्ये विभागाच्या कारभारात आणि अपेक्षित कामांमध्ये समस्या असल्याचे समोर आले होते. अफिलियेशन कमिटी आणि प्रतिष्ठानच्या मदतीने भारत विभागाने कामाचा आराखडा आखला आणि भारत विभाग २०१७ पर्यंत आपल्या योग्य मार्गावर आणि विभागाच्या विकिमिडीया प्रतिष्ठाननी ठरवून दिलेल्या अपेक्षांची पुर्तता करायला सुरूवात केली. पण पुन्हा २०१७ ते २०१९ दरम्यान भारत विभागाला विश्वासार्हता मिळवण्यास अडचणी आल्या. शिवाय हा विभाग विकिमिडीया प्रतिष्ठानकडून वित्तसहाय्य मिळवण्यासाठीच्या कायदेशीर अटींची पुर्तता करण्यासही अपूरा पडलेला आहे. पण प्रतिष्ठानला आणि अफिलियेशन कमिटीलाही अशी पूर्ण खात्री आहे की, या विभागाकडून लवकरच या कायदेशीर गरजांची पुर्तता केली जाईल.
आम्ही विकिमिडीया चळवळीच्या माध्यमातून भारतात उभ्या रहात असलेल्या नेतृत्वाचे खूप आभारी आहोत, इथल्या नेतृत्वाने जगभरातल्या चळवळीवर लक्षणिय परिणाम केला आहे. सध्या भारतातल्या आठ भाषीक समुदायांच्या सदस्य गटांना आम्ही मदत करत आहोत आणि आणखीन दोन गटांना अफकोमच्या निर्णयाने मान्यता मिळण्याची शक्यता आहे. भारतातून आम्हांला एकूण ७०० दशलक्ष वाचक भेटी दर महिन्याला मिळतात. आणि भारतीय समुदायांचा विकास हा आमच्या विकिपीडिया आणि विकिमिडीया प्रकल्पांच्या विकासाचा महत्वाचा भाग आहे.
विकिमिडीया चळवळीसाठी भारताचे प्रजासत्ताक राज्य हे महत्वाचे ठिकाण आहे. विकिमिडीया प्रतिष्ठानचे स्वयंसेवक सदस्यांना, वाचकांना, दात्यांना मदत करण्याचे काम आम्ही चालू ठेवणार आहोत. आमच्या मुक्त ज्ञान प्रकल्पांना आणि विकिमिडीया प्रकल्पांना योगदान देण्याचे काम जोमाने करत आहात याबद्दल आम्ही आपले आभारी आहोत. आम्हांला अशी आशा आहे की, आपण असेच एकत्र काम करत राहू.
विकिमिडीया प्रतिष्ठानच्या वतिने,
समुदाय जोडणी प्रमुख

Research Study on Indic-Language Wikipedia Editions (Participation Applications are Open)[संपादन]
ASK: I would really appreciate it if any community member could help translate this content to the local language। Thank you!
Although cultural and linguistic diversity on the Internet has exploded, English content remains dominant. Surprisingly, this appears to be true even on Wikipedia which is driven by increasingly linguistically diverse groups of participants. Although Wikipedia exists in almost three hundred language versions, participation and content creation are not distributed proportionally to the readership—or even proportional to editors’ mother tongues. A widely discussed puzzle within studies of online communities is that some small language communities thrive while other similar communities fail.
I hope to study this dynamic in Indic-language Wikipedia communities. There are dozens of Wikipedias in Indian language versions. I hope to study the experiences of several Indic-language Wikipedia communities with different levels of success in building communities of online participants but with similar numbers of Internet-connected native speakers, that face similar technical and linguistic challenges, that have similar socio-economic and political conditions, and so on.
We are looking for people interested in participating in this study!
In exchange for your participation, you will receive a ₹1430 gift card.
To join the study, you must be at least 18 years of age and must be an active member of your native Indic language Wikipedia. You should also feel comfortable having an interview discussion in Hindi or English.
Community Support and Feedback[संपादन]
I look forward to community's feedback and support!

Wikimedia Movement Strategy: 2020 Community Conversations[संपादन]
Greetings! Wishing you a very happy new year!
We have an update for the next steps of the Movement Strategy! We're preparing for a final round of community conversations with Wikimedia affiliates and online communities around a synthesized set of draft recommendations to start around late/mid January. In the meantime, recommendations’ writers and strategy team has been working on integrating community ideas and feedback into these recommendations. Thank you, for all of your contributions!
The recommendations writers have been working to consolidate the 89 recommendations produced by the working groups. They met in Berlin a few weeks back for an in-person session to produce a synthesized recommendations document which will be shared for public comment around late/mid January. A number of common areas for change were reflected in the recommendations, and the writers assessed and clustered them around these areas. The goal was to outline the overall direction of the change and present one set that is clearly understood, implementable and demonstrates the reasoning behind each.
We will be reaching out to you to help engage your affiliate in discussing this new synthesized version. Your input in helping us refine and advance key ideas will be invaluable, and we are looking forward to engaging with you for a period of thirty days from late/mid January. Our final consultation round is to give communities a chance to "review and discuss" the draft recommendations, highlighting areas of support and concern as well as indicating how your community would be affected.
Please share ideas on how you would like to meet and discuss the final draft recommendations when they are released near Mid January whether through your strategy salons, joining us at global and regional events, joining online conversations, or sending in notes from affiliate discussions. We couldn't do this without you, and hope that you will enjoy seeing your input reflected in the next draft and final recommendations. This will be an opportunity for the movement to review and respond to the recommendations before they are finalized.
If possible, we'd love if you could feature a discussion of the draft recommendations at the next in-person meeting of your affiliate, ideally between the last week of January and the first week of February. If not, please let us know how we can help support you with online conversations and discussing how the draft recommendations fit with the ideas shared at your strategy salon (when applicable).
The input communities have shared so far has been carefully documented, analyzed, and folded into the synthesized draft recommendations. Communities will be able to see footnotes referencing community ideas. What they share again in January/February will be given the same care, seriousness, and transparency.
This final round of community feedback will be presented to the Board of Trustees alongside the final recommendations that will be shared at the Wikimedia Summit.

Wikimedia 2030: Movement Strategy Community conversations are here![संपादन]
Dear Affiliate Representatives and community members,
The launch of our final round of community conversation is finally here! We are excited to have the opportunity to invite you to take part.
The recommendations have been published! Please take time over the next five weeks to review and help us understand how your organization and community would be impacted.
What Does This Mean?
The core recommendations document has now been published on Meta in Arabic, English, French, German, Hindi, Portuguese, and Spanish. This is the result of more than a year of dedicated work by our working groups, and we are pleased to share the evolution of their work for your final consideration.
In addition to the recommendations text, you can read through key documents such as Principles, Process, and the Writer’s Reflections, which lend important context to this work and highlight the ways that the recommendations are conceptually interlinked.
We also have a brief Narrative of Change  which offers a summary introduction to the recommendations material.
How Is My Input Reflected In This Work?
Community input played an important role in the drafting of these recommendations. The core recommendations document reflects this and cites community input throughout in footnotes.
I also encourage you to take a look at our community input summaries. These texts show a further analysis of how all of the ideas you shared last year through online conversations, affiliate meetings, and strategy salons connect to recommendations. Many of the community notes and reports not footnoted in the core recommendations document are referenced here as evidence of the incredible convergence of ideas that have brought us this far.
What Happens Now?
Affiliates, online communities, and other stakeholders have the next five weeks to discuss and share feedback on these recommendations. In particular, we’re hoping to better understand how you think they would impact our movement - what benefits and opportunities do you foresee for your affiliate, and why? What challenges or barriers would they pose for you? Your input at this stage is vital, and we’d like to warmly invite you to participate in this final discussion period.
We encourage volunteer discussion co-ordinators for facilitating these discussions in your local language community on-wiki, on social media, informal or formal meet ups, on-hangouts, IRC or the village pump of your project. Please collect a report from these channels or conversations and connect with me directly so that I can be sure your input is collected and used. Alternatively, you can also post the feedback on the meta talk pages of the respective recommendations.
After this five week period, the Core Team will publish a summary report of input from across affiliates, online communities, and other stakeholders for public review before the recommendations are finalized. You can view our updated timeline here as well as an updated FAQ section that addresses topics like the goal of this current period, the various components of the draft recommendations, and what’s next in more detail.
Thank you again for taking the time to join us in community conversations, and we look forward to receiving your input. (Please help us by translating this message into your local language). Happy reading! RSharma (WMF) MediaWiki message delivery (चर्चा) ०३:०१, २१ जानेवारी २०२० (IST)
Movement Learning and Leadership Development Project[संपादन]
The Wikimedia Foundation’s Community Development team is seeking to learn more about the way volunteers learn and develop into the many different roles that exist in the movement. Our goal is to build a movement informed framework that provides shared clarity and outlines accessible pathways on how to grow and develop skills within the movement. To this end, we are looking to speak with you, our community to learn about your journey as a Wikimedia volunteer. Whether you joined yesterday or have been here from the very start, we want to hear about the many ways volunteers join and contribute to our movement.
To learn more about the project, please visit the Meta page. If you are interested in participating in the project, please complete this simple Google form. Although we may not be able to speak to everyone who expresses interest, we encourage you to complete this short form if you are interested in participating!
Improving the translation support for Marathi[संपादन]
Content translation has been successful in supporting the translation process on many Wikipedia communities, and we want to help additional wikis with potential to grow using translation as part of a new initiative.
Content translation facilitates the creation of Wikipedia articles by translating content from other languages. It has been used already to create more than half a million articles. In addition, the tool provides mechanisms to encourage the creation of good quality content, preventing the publication of lightly edited machine translations. In general, our analysis shows that the translations produced are less likely to be deleted than the articles started from scratch.
Marathi editors have used Content translation to create 80 articles during last year. Given the size of the editing community, we think that there is potential to use translation to create more articles, expand existing ones, and attract new editors that learn how to make productive edits. Translation can help the community to reduce the language gap with other languages and grow the number of editors in a sustainable way. In order to achieve this goal, we want to collaborate with you to make Content translation more visible in the Marathi Wikipedia and support new ways to translate.
As a first step, during the next weeks we plan to enable Content translation by default on Marathi Wikipedia. That will make it easy for users to discover the tool through several entry points. However, users not interested in translation will still be able to disable it from their preferences.
Please feel free to share any comment in this conversation thread.
- Hello everyone. We have enabled Content translation by default on Marathi Wikipedia this week.
- Now it is easy for users to discover the tool through several entry points. However, users not interested in translation can disable it from their preferences.
- We expect this will help translators to create more content of good quality in Marathi. We’ll be monitoring the statistics for Marathi as well as the list of articles created with the tool. Content translation provides quality control mechanisms to prevent the abuse of machine translation and the limits can be adjusted based on the needs of each community. Please, feel free to share your impressions about the content created and how the tool works for the community. This feedback is essential to improve the tool to better support your needs.
Additional interface for edit conflicts on talk pages[संपादन]
Sorry, for writing this text in English. If you could help to translate it, it would be appreciated.
You might know the new interface for edit conflicts (currently a beta feature). Now, Wikimedia Germany is designing an additional interface to solve edit conflicts on talk pages. This interface is shown to you when you write on a discussion page and another person writes a discussion post in the same line and saves it before you do. With this additional editing conflict interface you can adjust the order of the comments and edit your comment. We are inviting everyone to have a look at the planned feature. Let us know what you think on our central feedback page! -- For the Technical Wishes Team: Max Klemm (WMDE) १९:४५, २६ फेब्रुवारी २०२० (IST)
The 2030 movement strategy recommendations are here![संपादन]
Greetings! We are pleased to inform that the 2030 movement strategy recommendations have been published on Meta-wiki. Over the last two years, our movement has worked tirelessly to produce these ideas to change our shared future. Many of you participated in the online conversations, hosted strategy salons, attended regional events, and connected with us in-person at Wikimania. These contributions were invaluable, and will help make our movement stronger for years to come.
The finished set of 10 recommendations emphasizes many of our core values, such as equity, innovation, safety, and coordination, while tasking us jointly to turn this vision into a reality. These recommendations clarify and refine the previous version, which was published in January this year. They are at a high strategic level so that the ideas are flexible enough to be adapted to different global and local settings and will allow us to navigate future challenges. Along with the recommendations, we have outlined 10 underlying principles, a narrative of change, and a glossary of key terms for better context.
The recommendations are available in numerous languages, including Arabic, German, Hindi, English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish for you to read and share widely. We encourage you to read the recommendations in your own time and at your own pace, either online or in a PDF. There are a couple of other formats for you to take a deeper dive if you wish, such as a one-page summary, slides, and office hours, all collected on Meta. If you would like to comment, you are welcome to do so on the Meta talk pages. However, please note that these are the final version of the recommendations. No further edits will be made. This final version of the recommendations embodies an aspiration for how the Wikimedia movement should continue to change in order to advance that direction and meet the Wikimedia vision in a changing world.
In terms of next steps, our focus now shifts toward implementation. In light of the cancellation of the Wikimedia Summit, the Wikimedia Foundation is determining the best steps for moving forward through a series of virtual events over the coming months. We will also be hosting live office hours in the next coming few days, where you can join us to celebrate the Strategy and ask questions! Please stay tuned, and thank you once again for helping to drive our movement forward, together. RSharma (WMF)
[Small wiki toolkits – Indic workshop series 2020] Register now![संपादन]
Greetings, hope this message finds you all in the best of your health, and you are staying safe amid the ongoing crisis.
Firstly, to give you context, Small wiki toolkits (SWT) is an initiative to support small wiki communities, to learn and share technical and semi-technical skills to support, maintain, and grow. We are happy to inform you that the SWT group has planned a series of four online workshops for Indic Wikimedia community members during June & July 2020. These workshops have been specifically designed and curated for Indic communities, based on a survey conducted early this year. The four workshops planned in this regard are;
- Understanding the technical challenges of Indic language wikis (by Birgit): Brainstorming about technical challenges faced by contributors to Indic language Wikimedia projects.
- Using project management & bug reporting tool Phabricator (by Andre): Introduction to Phabricator, a tool used for project management and software bug reporting.
- Writing Wikidata queries (by Mahir256): Introduction to the Wikidata Query Service, from writing simple queries to constructing complex visualizations of structured data.
- You can read more about these workshops at: SWT Indic Workshop Series 2020/Workshops -- exact dates and timings will be informed later to selected participants.
Registration is open until 24 May 2020, and you can register yourself by visiting this page! These workshops will be quite helpful for Indic communities to expand their technical bandwidth, and further iterations will be conducted based on the response to the current series. Looking forward to your participation! If you have any questions, please contact us on the talk page here. MediaWiki message delivery (चर्चा) २३:०८, १६ मे २०२० (IST)
