Commons:Photo challenge February 2017 is Multilingualism[muuda lähteteksti]

I left this information here, I think some of you might find it interesting (many of you live in a de facto bilingual country).


Bilingual plate? Local festivals? Serious cultural events? Official documents? Be creative.

The nicer the picture, the bigger its diffusion. You just win a barnstar.

I hope you can translate if necessary, have a nice wiki!--Alexmar983 (arutelu) 5. veebruar 2017, kell 08:11 (EET)

Review of initial updates on Wikimedia movement strategy process[muuda lähteteksti]

Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English. Message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

The Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout 2017. For 15 years, Wikimedians have worked together to build the largest free knowledge resource in human history. During this time, we've grown from a small group of editors to a diverse network of editors, developers, affiliates, readers, donors, and partners. Today, we are more than a group of websites. We are a movement rooted in values and a powerful vision: all knowledge for all people. As a movement, we have an opportunity to decide where we go from here.

This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve. We hope to design an inclusive process that makes space for everyone: editors, community leaders, affiliates, developers, readers, donors, technology platforms, institutional partners, and people we have yet to reach. There will be multiple ways to participate including on-wiki, in private spaces, and in-person meetings. You are warmly invited to join and make your voice heard.

The immediate goal is to have a strategic direction by Wikimania 2017 to help frame a discussion on how we work together toward that strategic direction.

Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list, and posted on Meta-Wiki. Beginning with this message, monthly reviews of these updates will be sent to this page as well. Sign up to receive future announcements and monthly highlights of strategy updates on your user talk page.

Here is a review of the updates that have been sent so far:

More information about the movement strategy is available on the Meta-Wiki 2017 Wikimedia movement strategy portal.

IMPORTANT: Admin activity review[muuda lähteteksti]

Hello. A policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc. ) was adopted by global community consensus in 2013. According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing administrators' activity on all Wikimedia Foundation wikis with no inactivity policy. 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 admin activity review.

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

  1. User:Ker (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. Thanks, Melos (arutelu) 17. märts 2017, kell 19:31 (EET)

Deployment of ORES review tool[muuda lähteteksti]

(Sorry for English, I hope someone translates this to Estonian) Hey folks,

A "likely damaging" edit is highlighted in Special:RecentChanges by the ORES extension.

We (The Revision Scoring Team) are happy to announce the deployment of the ORES review tool as a beta feature on Estonian Wikipedia. Once enabled, ORES highlights edits that are likely to be damaging in Special:RecentChanges to help you prioritize your patrolling work. ORES detects damaging edits using a basic prediction model based on past damage. ORES is an experimental technology. We encourage you to take advantage of it but also to be skeptical of the predictions made. Please reach out to us with your questions and concerns.

Also, I need to note your wiki doesn't have RC patrolling enabled. By enabling it, you can get more done using ORES review tool.

Estonian lakes in fi-wiki[muuda lähteteksti]

I have made over 100 Estonian lakes in fi-wiki and in that project we also increased the amount of data stored in wikidata. The idea is to put data available to any inter-wiki this way. That includes photos, area, altitude, country, parish, ect. If there are any updates made in wikidata, it will spreads the new data to any inter-wiki, whitch have the ability to use it. I encourage anyone to study the concept of wikidata because it will bebefit all the inter-wiki community. For example Ermistu järv in estonian is in finnish Ermistu järv and there you can open wikidata-link beneath the map (Muokkaa Wikidatassa). This technic needs a new Järv-mall to work correctly. I will also be gratfull, if you pinpoint me of any estonian lakes, whitch has some importance. I would gladly publish a article of those lakes in fi-wiki.--J Hokkanen (arutelu) 3. aprill 2017, kell 14:12 (EEST)

Thank you for you effort. You might want to use the list of Estonian lakes as your first reference. Lakes that have articles written about them (blue wikilinks) are arguably "more important" than the red links.--Vihelik (arutelu) 4. aprill 2017, kell 12:53 (EEST)
I am aware of this from the list (thanks) and it's been helpful. I am using pdf-file "Tamre, Ruta: Eesti Järved nimestik", which is a good source of basic data. I have done already large lakes, but I would like a list of important lakes: diving, fishing, canoeing routes, scientific research, etc. Lakes, whitch have more importance to local people.--J Hokkanen (arutelu) 4. aprill 2017, kell 16:50 (EEST)

Start of the 2017 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees elections[muuda lähteteksti]

Please accept our apologies for cross-posting this message. This message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

Wikimedia-logo black.svg

On behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee, I am pleased to announce that self-nominations are being accepted for the 2017 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees Elections.

The Board of Trustees (Board) is the decision-making body that is ultimately responsible for the long-term sustainability of the Wikimedia Foundation, so we value wide input into its selection. More information about this role can be found on Meta-Wiki. Please read the letter from the Board of Trustees calling for candidates.

The candidacy submission phase will last from April 7 (00:00 UTC) to April 20 (23:59 UTC).

We will also be accepting questions to ask the candidates from April 7 to April 20. You can submit your questions on Meta-Wiki.

Once the questions submission period has ended on April 20, the Elections Committee will then collate the questions for the candidates to respond to beginning on April 21.

The goal of this process is to fill the three community-selected seats on the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. The election results will be used by the Board itself to select its new members.

The full schedule for the Board elections is as follows. All dates are inclusive, that is, from the beginning of the first day (UTC) to the end of the last.

  • April 7 (00:00 UTC) – April 20 (23:59 UTC) – Board nominations
  • April 7 – April 20 – Board candidates questions submission period
  • April 21 – April 30 – Board candidates answer questions
  • May 1 – May 14 – Board voting period
  • May 15–19 – Board vote checking
  • May 20 – Board result announcement goal

In addition to the Board elections, we will also soon be holding elections for the following roles:

  • Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC)
    • There are five positions being filled. More information about this election will be available on Meta-Wiki.
  • Funds Dissemination Committee Ombudsperson (Ombuds)
    • One position is being filled. More information about this election will be available on Meta-Wiki.

Please note that this year the Board of Trustees elections will be held before the FDC and Ombuds elections. Candidates who are not elected to the Board are explicitly permitted and encouraged to submit themselves as candidates to the FDC or Ombuds positions after the results of the Board elections are announced.

More information on this year's elections can be found on Meta-Wiki. Any questions related to the election can be posted on the election talk page on Meta-Wiki, or sent to the election committee's mailing list, board-elections(at)

On behalf of the Election Committee,
Katie Chan, Chair, Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee
Joe Sutherland, Community Advocate, Wikimedia Foundation

Wikidata description editing in the Wikipedia Android app[muuda lähteteksti]

Wikidata description editing is a new experiment being rolled out on the Wikipedia app for Android. While this primarily impacts Wikidata, the changes are also addressing a concern about the mobile versions of Wikipedia, so that mobile users will be able to edit directly the descriptions shown under the title of the page and in the search results.

We began by rolling out this feature several weeks ago to a pilot group of Wikipedias (Russian, Hebrew, and Catalan), and have seen very positive results including numerous quality contributions in the form of new and updated descriptions, and a low rate of vandalism.

We are now ready for the next phase of rolling out this feature, which is to enable it in a few days for all Wikipedias except the top ten by usage within the app (i.e. except English, German, Italian, French, Spanish, Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese, Turkish, and Chinese). We will enable the feature for those languages instead at some point in the future, as we closely monitor user engagement with our expanded set of pilot communities. As always, if have any concerns, please reach out to us on wiki at the talk page for this project or by email at Thanks!

New filters for Recent Changes - Beta deployment schedule for your wiki[muuda lähteteksti]


(Sorry to write in English. Palun aita emakeelde tõlkida, thanks!)

The Collaboration team is going to launch a new Beta feature on your wiki, Uued filtrid muudatuste ülevaatuseks. This deployment would happen on May 9 (hour to be precised). This Beta feature is related to the work you have done on ORES predictions, by tagging diffs to know if they were "damagine" and/or "done in good faith".

What it this new feature?

This feature improves Special:RecentChanges and Special:RecentChangesLinked by adding new useful features that will ease vandalism tracking and support of newcomers:

  • Filtering - filter recent changes with easy-to-use and powerful filters combinations.
  • Highlighting - add a colored background to the different changes you are monitoring, to quickly identify the ones that matter to you.
  • Quality and Intent Filters - user ORES predictions to identify real vandalism or good faith intent contributions that need assistance.

What will happen?

At the moment, the ORES beta feature is available in your Beta preferences. We the deployment will be done:

  • ORES predictions highlighting is activated by default for all users (not in Beta anymore).
    • It is symbolized by a "ü" in all RecentChanges pages, Special:Contributions, Special:Watchlist, for all users.
    • Users who want to change the accuracy level of ORES predictions or opt-out can do so in their preferences, in the "Watchlist" tab.
  • Previous ORES Beta users will have a highlight of likely problem edits with colors. It will be possible to disable it in your preferences, in the "Watchlist" tab as well.
  • Anyone who wants to have the new filters have to enable them in their preferences, in "Beta" tab. Other users have nothing to change.

How to prepare this change?

You can discover the purpose of this project by visiting the quick tour help page. Also, please check the documentation (and help to translate it). Please also have a look at the translations of the interface on The messages are prefixed as rcfilters- and ores-rcfilters-.

This feature is already available on most wikis. To see how the prediction filters based on ORES, you can enable them on English, Portuguese or Polish Wikipedia.

Please ping me if you have questions. :)

Prototype for editing Wikidata infoboxes on Wikipedia[muuda lähteteksti]


I’m sorry for writing in English. It’d be great if someone could translate this message if necessary.

One of the most requested features for Wikidata is to enable editing of Wikidata’s data directly from Wikipedia, so the editors can continue their workflow without switching websites.

The Wikidata development team has been working on a tool to achieve this goal: fill and edit the Wikipedia infoboxes with information from Wikidata, directly on Wikipedia, via the Visual Editor.

We already asked for feedback in 2015, and collected some interesting ideas which we shared with you in this thesis. Now we would like to present to you our first prototype and collect your feedback, in order to improve and continue the development of this feature.

We present this work to you very early, so we can include your feedback before and all along the development. You are the core users of this feature, so we want to make sure that it fits your needs and editing processes.

You will find the prototype, description of the features, and a demo video, on this page. Feel free to add any comment or feedback on the talk page. The page is currently not translated in every languages, but you can add your contribution by helping to translate it.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to follow all the discussions on Wikipedia, so if you want to be sure that your feedback is read, please add it on the Wikidata page, in your favorite language. Thanks for your understanding.

Thanks, Lea Lacroix (WMDE)

New notification when a page is connected to Wikidata[muuda lähteteksti]

Hello all,

(Palun aita emakeelde tõlkida)

The Wikidata development team is about to deploy a new feature on all Wikipedias. It is a new type of notification (via Echo, the notification system you see at the top right of your wiki when you are logged in), that will inform the creator of a page, when this page is connected to a Wikidata item.

You may know that Wikidata provides a centralized system for all the interwikilinks. When a new page is created, it should be connected to the corresponding Wikidata item, by modifying this Wikidata item. With this new notification, editors creating pages will be informed when another editor connects this page to Wikidata.

Screenshot Echo Wikibase notification.png

This feature will be deployed on May 30th on all the Wikipedias, excepting English, French and German. This feature will be disable by default for existing editors, and enabled by default for new editors.

This is the first step of the deployments, the Wikipedias and other Wikimedia projects will follow in the next months.

If you have any question, suggestion, please let me know by pinging me. You can also follow and leave a comment on the Phabricator ticket.

Thanks go to Matěj Suchánek who developed this feature!
