Pywikipedia is migrating to git[संपादन]

Hello, Sorry for English but It's very important for bot operators so I hope someone translates this. Pywikipedia is migrating to Git so after July 26, SVN checkouts won't be updated If you're using Pywikipedia you have to switch to git, otherwise you will use out-dated framework and your bot might not work properly. There is a manual for doing that and a blog post explaining about this change in non-technical language. If you have question feel free to ask in mw:Manual talk:Pywikipediabot/Gerrit, mailing list, or in the IRC channel. Best Amir (via Global message delivery). १९:०३, २३ जुलै २०१३ (IST)

HTTPS for users with an account[संपादन]

Greetings. Starting on August 21 (tomorrow), all users with an account will be using HTTPS to access Wikimedia sites. HTTPS brings better security and improves your privacy. More information is available at m:HTTPS.

If HTTPS causes problems for you, tell us on bugzilla, on IRC (in the #wikimedia-operations channel) or on meta. If you can't use the other methods, you can also send an e-mail to https@wikimedia.org.

Notifications[संपादन]

Notifications inform you of new activity that affects you -- and let you take quick action.

(This message is in English, please translate as needed)

Greetings!

Notifications will inform users about new activity that affects them on this wiki in a unified way: for example, this new tool will let you know when you have new talk page messages, edit reverts, mentions or links -- and is designed to augment (rather than replace) the watchlist. The Wikimedia Foundation's editor engagement team developed this tool (code-named 'Echo') earlier this year, to help users contribute more productively to MediaWiki projects.

We're now getting ready to bring Notifications to almost all other Wikimedia sites, and are aiming for a 22 October deployment, as outlined in this release plan. It is important that notifications is translated for all of the languages we serve.

There are three major points of translation needed to be either done or checked:

Please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions or comments about this new tool. For more information, visit this project hub and this help page. Keegan (WMF) (talk) ००:२९, ५ ऑक्टोबर २०१३ (IST)

Introducting Beta Features[संपादन]

(Apologies for writing in English. Please translate if necessary)

We would like to let you know about Beta Features, a new program from the Wikimedia Foundation that lets you try out new features before they are released for everyone.

Think of it as a digital laboratory where community members can preview upcoming software and give feedback to help improve them. This special preference page lets designers and engineers experiment with new features on a broad scale, but in a way that's not disruptive.

Beta Features is now ready for testing on MediaWiki.org. It will also be released on Wikimedia Commons and MetaWiki this Thursday, 7 November. Based on test results, the plan is to release it on all wikis worldwide on 21 November, 2013.

Here are the first features you can test this week:

Would you like to try out Beta Features now? After you log in on MediaWiki.org, a small 'Beta' link will appear next to your 'Preferences'. Click on it to see features you can test, check the ones you want, then click 'Save'. Learn more on the Beta Features page.

After you've tested Beta Features, please let the developers know what you think on this discussion page -- or report any bugs here on Bugzilla. You're also welcome to join this IRC office hours chat on Friday, 8 November at 18:30 UTC.

Beta Features was developed by the Wikimedia Foundation's Design, Multimedia and VisualEditor teams. Along with other developers, they will be adding new features to this experimental program every few weeks. They are very grateful to all the community members who helped create this project — and look forward to many more productive collaborations in the future.

Enjoy, and don't forget to let developers know what you think! Keegan (WMF) (talk) ०१:५१, ६ नोव्हेंबर २०१३ (IST)

४०,००० लेख[संपादन]

नमस्कार,

मराठी विकिपीडियावर ४०,००० लेख असण्याचा टप्पा आता दृष्टिक्षेपात आहे. १५ जानेवारी, २०१४ रोजी येथे ३९,७८६ लेख आहेत म्हणजे अजून २१४ लेख जोडल्यास ४०,००० लेखांचा मैलदगड गाठता येईल.

याबद्दल दोन गोष्टी मांडाव्याशा वाटतात --

१. गेल्या काही महिन्यांत आपण नुसते येथील लेखसंख्या वाढविण्याकडे रेटा न लावता लेखांमध्ये भर घालण्याकडे लक्ष केंद्रित केल्याचे लक्षात येते. मराठी विकिपीडियाच्या विकासाची ही मोठी खूण आहे. माहितीमध्ये भर घालण्याबरोबरच माहितीचे वर्गीकरण, लेखांमध्ये दुवे देणे, संदर्भ जोडणे, उत्पात हटविणे, आंतरविकी दुवे लावणे यासारखी कामेही तितकीच महत्वाची आहे हे आता आपल्या सगळ्यांच्याच ध्यानात आहे ही आनंदाची बाब आहे.

२. २७ फेब्रुवारी हा जागतिक मराठी भाषा दिवस म्हणून साजरा केला जातो. दरवर्षी यानिमित्ताने मराठी विकिपीडियावर संपादनेथॉन आयोजित केली जाते. यावर्षीसुद्धा हा उपक्रम राबवून त्या दरम्यान (किंवा त्याआधीसुद्धा!) ४०,००० लेखांचा मैलदगड गाठला तर उत्तमच!

मराठी विकिपीडियाद्वारे मराठी भाषेची वृद्धी करण्यात हातभार लावल्याबद्दल पुन्हा एकदा तुमचे मनःपूर्वक धन्यवाद!

अभय नातू (चर्चा) २३:४१, १५ जानेवारी २०१४ (IST)

अभयराव ४०००० हजाराकडे माझेही लक्ष होतेच. हा विषय चावडीवर आणला हे बरे केले. नवीन लेख चाळीस हजाराचा टप्पा गाठायचाय म्हणून घाई करू नये. लेख तयार करताना नवीन लेख किमान १०० + शब्दांचा असावा असा प्रयत्न ठेवावा. जास्त असल्यास उत्तम. २७ फेब् च्या आता चाळीस हजारी पल्ला गाठू या... चला सगळे मिळून जोर लावूया! निनाद ०६:०२, १६ जानेवारी २०१४ (IST)
निनाद १०० शब्द म्हणजे अंदाजे किती बाईट्स होतील. मराठी भाषा दिवसाच्या निमीत्ताने विकिस्रोतवर टायपिंग स्पर्धा आयोजीत करून सोशल मिडियातन प्रसिद्धी देण्याची इच्छा होती पण काही इनिशियल रिस्पॉन्स येताना दिसत नाही असे का असावे ?

१०० शब्द म्हणजे १००० बाईट्स पेक्षा मोठा लेख. मी मोजले तेव्हा १२०० वगैरे भरत होते. थोडेफार कमी जास्त. उदारहणार्थ तुरटी यालेखात १५९ शब्द आहेत. आणि बाईट झाल्या आहेत सुमारे २९००.
टायपिंग स्पर्धा ही चांगली कल्पना आहे. परंतु टायपिंग ही कल्पना नव्या पीढीला रोचक वाटणे शक्य वाटत नाही. मात्र हीच कल्पना वय ५० अधिक असलेल्यांना आवडणारी असावी. ही स्पर्धा मराठी संस्थळांवर येणाऱ्या लोकांनाच थोडीफार भावेल. पण अजून आड्यंस कुठून आणणार? त्यामुळे आपल्याला मेन स्ट्रीम मिडियाकडे जावे लागेल. त्यातून त्यांना याची युटिलिटी दिसून आली पाहिजे. म्हणजे. 'एका वाक्यात सांगा मी विकि कसा वापरला'. 'माझा आवडता लेख', मला इंग्रजी विकिवरून मराठी विकिवर सापडलेला लेख वगैरे प्रश्न टाकून उपयोगिता दाखवून देता येईल. तसेच 'मी विकिवर का लिहितो' अशी मनोगते वगैरे मी टाकू शकेन. असे आता सुचतेय. नव्या पीढीला आवडाणाऱ्या गोष्टी आल्या तर कदाचित त्याला जास्त प्रतिसाद मिळावा. त्यातल्या त्यात क्रिकेट आणि चित्रपट हे आपले हक्काचे भाग आहेत. ;) त्यावर किमान १०० शब्दांचे लेखन अशी लेखनाची स्पर्धा चालवली तर जरा जास्त प्रतिसाद असेल असे वाटते. आवडते खेळाडू, कलाकार, चित्रपट वगैरे.
तसेच स्पर्धेचे कालावधी आणि वेळ निश्चित असावी. परिक्षक कुणीतरी प्रसिद्ध व्यक्ती असावी/असाव्यात. त्यात प्रसिद्धी व मिडिया क्षेत्रातील व्यक्तींचा सहभाग जाणीवपूर्वक ठेवावा. वृत्तपत्रात आणि टिव्हीवर आधी प्रसिद्धी करून मग(च) स्पर्धेची सुरुवात करावी. या स्पर्धेतून नवीन लेख तयार झाले तर सोन्याहून पिवळे. किंवा तसे तयार करूनच घेतले पाहिजेत त्यानुसार लेखनाचे विषय द्यावेत. यावर अजून डोकॅलिटी लढवली पाहिजे असे वाटते. शिवाय समारंभ घडवून प्रशस्ती पत्रके, प्रशस्ती पत्रके द्यावीत असेही सुचवतो. निनाद ०५:१७, १७ जानेवारी २०१४ (IST)

Request for comment on Commons: Should Wikimedia support MP4 video?[संपादन]

I apologize for this message being only in English. Please translate it if needed to help your community.

The Wikimedia Foundation's multimedia team seeks community guidance on a proposal to support the MP4 video format. This digital video standard is used widely around the world to record, edit and watch videos on mobile phones, desktop computers and home video devices. It is also known as H.264/MPEG-4 or AVC.

Supporting the MP4 format would make it much easier for our users to view and contribute video on Wikipedia and Wikimedia projects -- and video files could be offered in dual formats on our sites, so we could continue to support current open formats (WebM and Ogg Theora).

However, MP4 is a patent-encumbered format, and using a proprietary format would be a departure from our current practice of only supporting open formats on our sites -- even though the licenses appear to have acceptable legal terms, with only a small fee required.

We would appreciate your guidance on whether or not to support MP4. Our Request for Comments presents views both in favor and against MP4 support, based on opinions we’ve heard in our discussions with community and team members.

Please join this RfC -- and share your advice.

All users are welcome to participate, whether you are active on Commons, Wikipedia, other Wikimedia project -- or any site that uses content from our free media repository.

You are also welcome to join tomorrow's Office hours chat on IRC, this Thursday, January 16, at 19:00 UTC, if you would like to discuss this project with our team and other community members.

We look forward to a constructive discussion with you, so we can make a more informed decision together on this important topic. Keegan (WMF) (talk) १२:१७, १६ जानेवारी २०१४ (IST)

चाळीस हजारी टप्पा गाठायला विवीध संस्थळांवर जाहिरात केली आहे![संपादन]

नमस्कार मंडळी, मराठी विकिचा चाळीस हजारी टप्पा गाठायला विवीध संस्थळांवर खालील जाहिरात केली आहे. आशा आहे प्रतिसाद मिळेल. आपला निनाद


मराठी विकिला चाळीस हजारी टप्पा गाठायला आता अजून फक्त १९१ लेख हवे आहेत. २७ फेब्रुवारी या मराठी दिवसाच्या आधी मराठी विकीला चाळीस हजार लेखांच्या टप्प्यावर घेऊन जाऊया! या साठी अजून जवळपास महिन्याभराचा कालावधी आहे.

विकिवर कस्काय लिहायचे बॉ? मराठीविकिवर लेखन करणे अगदी सोप्पे आहे. आपल्याला हवा तो शब्द शोधपेटीत शोधायचा तो लाल रंगात आला तर त्यावर टिचकी द्यायची की लेखनाची खिडकी उघडेल त्यात लिखाणास सुरुवात करायची. झाले!

मी काय लेख लिहू? असा प्रश्न असल्यास आपण ज्या क्षेत्रात काम करतो त्याचा शोध घ्या. काही सापडले नाही तर लेख लिहून टाका. आपले आवडते विषय छंद यातले अनेक लेख लिहिता येतील. किंवा एखादा इंग्रजी लेख दिसला आणि त्याचा मराठी दुवा दिसला नाही तर तो लेख लिहा. सगळा लेख लिहिलाच पाहिजे असे नाही. पण किमान १०० शब्दांची ओळख तरी लिहावी. विकि कॉमन्स वर असलेली चित्रे आपल्या लेखात लावता येतात.

नवीन त काय नाय् बॉ! काही वेळा आधीच असलेल्या लेखात मोलाची भर घालता येईल. हे ही महत्त्वाचेच आहे. अगदी एका वाक्याची भर घालायलाही स्वागतच असेल. लेखांची आणि पानांची शीर्षके (नावे) शक्यतो मराठी भाषेतच (देवनागरी लिपीत) असावीत असा मात्र मराठी विकिचा दंडक आहे.

अजून? लेखन करताना आंतरविकिदुवे दिले तर लेखाचे मूल्य वाढते. हे दुवे देण्यासाठी चौकोनी कंस [[ ]] वापरता येतो. उदारहरणार्थ, बे एरिया या विभागामध्ये सुमारे २% मराठी भाषीक राहतात. यातले बे एरिया आणि मराठी हे आपोआप त्या त्या पानांवर जाणारे दुवे बनतील. शिवाय आपले विकिपान इंग्रजी पानाला जोडावे. जमले तर वर्गवारी करावी. म्हणजे शोध सोपा होतो.

मदत याशिवाय काहीही मदत लागली तर मला विचारा. किंवा चावडी अथवा प्रचालकांना विचारा. तत्परतेने मदत मिळेल! चला मग कामाला लागू या. आपल्या मराठी विकिला आता पुढे नेऊ या! निनाद ०६:२५, २३ जानेवारी २०१४ (IST)

Universal Language Selector will be enabled by default again on this wiki by 21 February 2014[संपादन]

On January 21 2014 the MediaWiki extension Universal Language Selector (ULS) was disabled on this wiki. A new preference was added for logged-in users to turn on ULS. This was done to prevent slow loading of pages due to ULS webfonts, a behaviour that had been observed by the Wikimedia Technical Operations team on some wikis.

We are now ready to enable ULS again. The temporary preference to enable ULS will be removed. A new checkbox has been added to the Language Panel to enable/disable font delivery. This will be unchecked by default for this wiki, but can be selected at any time by the users to enable webfonts. This is an interim solution while we improve the feature of webfonts delivery.

Changes to the default site typography coming soon[संपादन]

This week, the typography on Wikimedia sites will be updated for all readers and editors who use the default "Vector" skin. This change will involve new serif fonts for some headings, small tweaks to body content fonts, text size, text color, and spacing between elements. The schedule is:

  • April 1st: non-Wikipedia projects will see this change live
  • April 3rd: Wikipedias will see this change live

This change is very similar to the "Typography Update" Beta Feature that has been available on Wikimedia projects since November 2013. After several rounds of testing and with feedback from the community, this Beta Feature will be disabled and successful aspects enabled in the default site appearance. Users who are logged in may still choose to use another skin, or alter their personal CSS, if they prefer a different appearance. Local common CSS styles will also apply as normal, for issues with local styles and scripts that impact all users.

No one needs free knowledge in Esperanto[संपादन]

There is a current discussion on German Wikipedia on a decision of Asaf Bartov, Head of WMF Grants and Global South Partnerships, Wikimedia Foundation, who rejected a request for funding a proposal from wikipedians from eowiki one year ago with the explanation the existence, cultivation, and growth of the Esperanto Wikipedia does not advance our educational mission. No one needs free knowledge in Esperanto. On meta there has also started a discussion about that decision. --Holder (चर्चा) १६:१०, ५ मे २०१४ (IST)

I wanted to let you know that Media Viewer will be released to this wiki in the coming weeks. Media Viewer allows readers of Wikimedia projects to have an enhanced view of files without having to visit the file page, but with more detail than a thumbnail. You can try Media Viewer out now by turning it on in your Beta Features. If you do not enjoy Media Viewer or if it interferes with your work after it is turned on you will be able to disable Media Viewer as well in your preferences. I invite you to share what you think about Media Viewer and how it can be made better in the future.

Thank you for your time. - Keegan (WMF) ०२:५९, २४ मे २०१४ (IST)

Using only UploadWizard for uploads[संपादन]

Wikimedia Commons logo

Hello! Sorry for writing in English. It was noted that on this wiki upload is not fully functional for users, who will experience a very difficult and/or illegal uploading. In fact, the licenses/copyright tags dropdown is empty, making it hard or impossible to comply with copyright requirements during upload itself.

Presumably, you don't have interest nor energies to have hundreds templates with the now required HTML, even less a local EDP. I propose to have

so that you can avoid local maintenance and all users can have a functioning, easy upload interface in their own language. All registered users can upload on Commons and existing files will not be affected.

All this will get done around 2014-07-03.

  1. If you disagree with the proposal, just remove your wiki from the list. Remember also to create MediaWiki:Licenses locally with any content (see a simple example), or uploads will be soon disabled anyway by MediaWiki itself (starting in version 1.24wmf11).
  2. To make the UploadWizard even better, please tell your experience and ideas on commons:Commons:Upload Wizard feedback.

IMPORTANT: Admin activity review[संपादन]

Hello. A new policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc) was recently adopted by global community consensus (your community received a notice about the discussion). According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing administrators' activity on smaller wikis. To the best of our knowledge, your wiki does not have a formal process for removing "advanced rights" from inactive accounts. This means that the stewards will take care of this according to the new admin activity review here.

We have determined that the following users meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no log actions for more than 2 years):

  1. User:Kaustubh (administrator)
  2. user:श्रीहरि (administrator)


These users will receive a notification soon, asking them to start a community discussion if they want to retain some or all of their rights. If the users do not respond, then their advanced rights will be removed by the stewards.

However, if you as a community would like to create your own activity review process superseding the global one, want to make another decision about these inactive rights holders, or already have a policy that we missed, then please notify the stewards on Meta-Wiki so that we know not to proceed with the rights review on your wiki.

Meta RfCs on two new global groups[संपादन]

Hello all,

There are currently requests for comment open on meta to create two new global groups. The first is a group for members of the OTRS permissions queue, which would grant them autopatrolled rights on all wikis except those who opt-out. That proposal can be found at m:Requests for comment/Creation of a global OTRS-permissions user group. The second is a group for Wikimedia Commons admins and OTRS agents to view deleted file pages through the 'viewdeletedfile' right on all wikis except those who opt-out. The second proposal can be found at m:Requests for comment/Global file deletion review.

We would like to hear what you think on both proposals. Both are in English; if you wanted to translate them into your native language that would also be appreciated.

It is possible for individual projects to opt-out, so that users in those groups do not have any additional rights on those projects. To do this please start a local discussion, and if there is consensus you can request to opt-out of either or both at m:Stewards' noticeboard.

Thanks and regards, Ajraddatz (talk) २३:३४, २६ ऑक्टोबर २०१४ (IST)

Global AbuseFilter[संपादन]

Hello,

AbuseFilter is a MediaWiki extension used to detect likely abusive behavior patterns, like pattern vandalism and spam. In 2013, Global AbuseFilters were enabled on a limited set of wikis including Meta-Wiki, MediaWiki.org, Wikispecies and (in early 2014) all the "small wikis". Recently, global abuse filters were enabled on "medium sized wikis" as well. These filters are currently managed by stewards on Meta-Wiki and have shown to be very effective in preventing mass spam attacks across Wikimedia projects. However, there is currently no policy on how the global AbuseFilters will be managed although there are proposals. There is an ongoing request for comment on policy governing the use of the global AbuseFilters. In the meantime, specific wikis can opt out of using the global AbuseFilter. These wikis can simply add a request to this list on Meta-Wiki. More details can be found on this page at Meta-Wiki. If you have any questions, feel free to ask on m:Talk:Global AbuseFilter.

Thanks,

Copyright and CC primer for Indian Wikimedians[संपादन]

Apologies for writing in English

Dear Wikimedians,

I would like to introduce you all to Thomas, a fourth year law student at the National Law University Jodhpur. He has joined CIS-A2K as an intern and will be developing a primer on Copyright and Creative Commons for the use of Indian Wikimedians.

Thomas' aim is to cater to the broad spectrum of Wikimedia users and to provide both an introduction to copyright law and to address more advanced questions of copyright law that users might encounter with regards to issues like digitisation, public domain works, etc.

His approach thus far has been to comb the India Mailing List to discover the common questions or concerns that Indian Wikimedians face while dealing with content. He hopes to then transpose answers to these queries along with general copyright related information onto a primer following a mixture of a FAQ based and prose based format to allow for better transposition of information as well as to allow for better readability and engagement.

As you will realise, this approach suffers from a number of defects: 1. There are a large number of queries or concerns that users might have which are not addressed onto the mailing lists and are near impossible to pre-empt. 2. There are a number of unique processes that Wikimedia implements (like the “precautionary principle”) that is unique to the context of copyright and Wikimedia which he is yet to familiarise himself and such a familiarity can only be built with periodic use. 3. There are a large number of Wikimedians who might be unrepresented on the Mailing List and might have queries regarding the use of content.


To this end, Thomas hopes to get some support from the community here in terms of: 1. Asking any queries that you may have regarding copyright law and its application to the Wikimedia Universe. 2. Passing along any queries or issues that you may have heard of from other users, so that this may be introduced. 3. Passing along any other information that may be specifically relevant to this endeavour, in terms of experience with Wikimedia policy, practice that has been developed over the past few years and the like.

Any support in this regard would be extremely helpful. This primer will of course be a work in progress for subsequent authors to edit and build upon, true to the Wikimedia ethos, however for the sake of at least an initial completeness, I request you to reply in over the course of this week, latest by the 3rd of January 2015.

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.

Nominations are being accepted for 2015 Wikimedia Foundation elections[संपादन]

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

Pywikibot compat will no longer be supported - Please migrate to pywikibot core[संपादन]

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,
The Pywikibot development team, 19:30, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

Proposal to create PNG thumbnails of static GIF images[संपादन]

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 (चर्चा) १०:३७, २४ जुलै २०१५ (IST)

What does a Healthy Community look like to you?[संपादन]

Community Health Cover art News portal.png

Hi,
The Community Engagement department at the Wikimedia Foundation has launched a new learning campaign. The WMF wants to record community impressions about what makes a healthy online community. Share your views and/or create a drawing and take a chance to win a Wikimania 2016 scholarship! Join the WMF as we begin a conversation about Community Health. Contribute a drawing or answer the questions on the campaign's page.

Why get involved?[संपादन]

The world is changing. The way we relate to knowledge is transforming. As the next billion people come online, the Wikimedia movement is working to bring more users on the wiki projects. The way we interact and collaborate online are key to building sustainable projects. How accessible are Wikimedia projects to newcomers today? Are we helping each other learn?
Share your views on this matter that affects us all!
We invite everyone to take part in this learning campaign. Wikimedia Foundation will distribute one Wikimania Scholarship 2016 among those participants who are eligible.

Happy editing!

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

(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:

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

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!

As many of you know, January 15 is Wikipedia’s 15th Birthday!

People around the world are getting involved in the celebration and have started adding their events on Meta Page. While we are celebrating Wikipedia's birthday, we hope that all projects and affiliates will be able to utilize this celebration to raise awareness of our community's efforts.

Haven’t started planning? Don’t worry, there’s lots of ways to get involved. Here are some ideas:

Everything is linked on the Wikipedia 15 Meta page. You’ll find a set of ten data visualization works that you can show at your events, and a list of all the Wikipedia 15 logos that community members have already designed.

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.

No editing two times this week[संपादन]

Wikimedia Foundation आपल्या नवीन विदाकेन्द्राची (डेटा सेंटर) चाचणी घेण्याचे बेत करीत आहे. सध्याच्या विदाकेन्द्रात काही आपत्ती आल्यास या विदाकेन्द्रामुळे विकिमीडियाचे प्रकल्प बंद न पडता सेवारत ठेवता येतील. To make sure everything is working, the Wikimedia Technology department needs to conduct a planned test. This test will show whether they can reliably switch from one data center to the other. It requires many teams to prepare for the test and to be available to fix any unexpected problems.

They will switch all traffic to the new data center on Tuesday, 19 April.
On Thursday, 21 April, they will switch back to the primary data center.

Unfortunately, because of some limitations in MediaWiki, all editing must stop during those two switches. We apologize for this disruption, and we are working to minimize it in the future.

You will be able to read, but not edit, all wikis for a short period of time.

  • You will not be able to edit for approximately 15 to 30 minutes on Tuesday, 19 April and Thursday, 21 April, starting at 14:00 UTC (15:00 BST, 16:00 CEST, 10:00 EDT, 07:00 PDT).
  • If you try to edit or save during these times, you will see an error message. We hope that no edits will be lost during these minutes, but we can't guarantee it. If you see the error message, then please wait until everything is back to normal. Then you should be able to save your edit. But, we recommend that you make a copy of your changes first, just in case.

Other effects:

  • Background jobs will be slower and some may be dropped. Red links might not be updated as quickly as normal. If you create an article that is already linked somewhere else, the link will stay red longer than usual. Some long-running scripts will have to be stopped.
  • There will be a code freeze for the week of 18 April. No non-essential code deployments will take place.

This test was originally planned to take place on March 22. April 19th and 21st are the new dates. You can read the schedule at wikitech.wikimedia.org. They will post any changes on that schedule. There will be more notifications about this. Please share this information with your community. /Johan (WMF) (चर्चा) ०३:५६, १८ एप्रिल २०१६ (IST)

Please, join the discussion on Meta-Wiki (and translate this invitation to your language community)! Best, Moon team at Wikimedia Deutschland २१:०५, २१ एप्रिल २०१६ (IST)

Wikipedia to the Moon: voting has begun[संपादन]

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

Compact Links coming soon to this wiki[संपादन]

कृपया आपल्या भाषेत भाषांतर करण्यास मदत करा

Screenshot of Compact Language Links interlanguage list

Hello, I wanted to give a heads up about an upcoming feature for this wiki which you may seen already in Tech News. Compact Language Links has been available as a beta-feature on all Wikimedia wikis since 2014. With compact language links enabled, users are shown a much shorter list of languages on the interlanguage link section of an article (see image). This will be enabled as a feature in the coming week for all users, which can be turned on or off using a preference setting. We look forward to your feedback and please do let us know if you have any questions. Details about Compact Language Links can be read in the project documentation.

Due to the large scale enablement of this feature, we have had to use MassMessage for this message and as a result it is only written in English. We will really appreciate if this message can be translated for other users of this wiki. The main announcement can also be translated on this page. Thank you.

Wikipedia to the Moon: invitation to edit[संपादन]

Three weeks ago, you were invited to vote on how to take Wikipedia articles to the Moon. Community voting is over and the winning idea is to send all ‘’featured articles and lists’’ to the Moon. This decision means that, starting today, Wikipedians from all language communities are warmly invited to intensively work on their best articles and lists, and submit them to Wikipedia to the Moon. The central site to coordinate between communities will be Meta-Wiki. You will find an overview and more information there. Hopefully, we will be able to represent as many languages as possible, to show Wikipedia’s diversity. Please feel kindly invited to edit on behalf of your community and tell us about your work on featured content!

आटोपशीर भाषा दुव्यांच्या आंतरभाषा यादीचे पटलचित्र

आटोपशीर भाषा दुवे हे सर्व विकिमिडिया विकिंवर सन २०१४ पासून, एक बीटा फिचर म्हणून उपलब्ध आहेत.आटोपशीर भाषा दुवे सक्षम करण्याने, सदस्यांना,लेखाच्या आंतरभाषिक दुवा भागात, एक बरीच छोटी भाषांची यादी दाखविण्यात येते (चित्र बघा).त्यांचेसाठी, ही अनेक मुद्यांवर आधारित असलेली ही भाषांची छोटी यादी, जास्त प्रसंगोचित असणे अपेक्षित आहे व त्याच लेखासारखा आशय, ते जाणत असलेल्या इतर भाषांत शोधणे, त्यांचेसाठी मौलिक ठरु शकते. आटोपशीर भाषा दुवे या बाबतची अधिक माहिती दस्ताऐवजीकरण येथे बघता येऊ शकते.

आजपासून,आटोपशीर भाषा दुवे हे, या विकिवर, आंतरभाषिक दुव्यांसाठी एक अविचल यादी असतील. तरीपण,खाली असलेली कळ वापरुन,आपण संबंधित लेख ज्या-ज्या भाषेत लिहिल्या गेला आहे, त्या सर्व भाषांची विस्तृत यादीपण बघु शकता.

आटोपशीर भाषा दुवे हे फिचर, विकिमिडिया भाषिक चमू द्वारे, ज्यांनी यास विकसित केले, अधिक विस्तृतपणे तपासल्या गेले आहे. तरीपण, त्यात काही समस्या असतील तर, किंवा प्रतिसाद असेल तर आम्हास तो प्रकल्प चर्चा पान येथे द्या. याची कृपया नोंद घ्या कि, काही विकिंवर उपलब्ध असलेले जूने गॅजेट, जे यासारख्याच कामासाठी वापरल्या जात होते,ते, या आटोपशीर भाषा यादीसाठी त्रासदायक ठरू शकते.हे आम्ही या विकिच्या प्रशासकांच्या लक्षात आणून देऊ ईच्छितो.या बाबतचा संपूर्ण तपशील (इंग्रजीत) या फॅब्रिकेटर तिकिटावर आहे.
