Introducing the Wikimedia public policy site[muuda lähteteksti]

Hi all,

We are excited to introduce a new Wikimedia Public Policy site. The site includes resources and position statements on access, copyright, censorship, intermediary liability, and privacy. The site explains how good public policy supports the Wikimedia projects, editors, and mission.

Visit the public policy portal: https://policy.wikimedia.org/

Please help translate the statements on Meta Wiki. You can read more on the Wikimedia blog.

Thanks,

Reimagining WMF grants report[muuda lähteteksti]

(My apologies for using English here, please help translate if you are able.)

Last month, we asked for community feedback on a proposal to change the structure of WMF grant programs. Thanks to the 200+ people who participated! A report on what we learned and changed based on this consultation is now available.

Come read about the findings and next steps as WMF’s Community Resources team begins to implement changes based on your feedback. Your questions and comments are welcome on the outcomes discussion page.

With thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) 28. september 2015, kell 19:56 (EEST)

Return to the topic[muuda lähteteksti]

Greetings, I am trying to read the above discussion through google translate. I apologize if I get facts wrong.

  • So, in the case of 20,000 revisions, we only need about 2,000 of them handcoded. We automatically label the other 18,000 since we are confident they are ok as those edits were never reverted, are made by admins or bots etc. This way we avoid bias.
  • Quality assessment would help triage an existing problem. Bot would learn from the constant training as the quality standards increase over time. Training of this requires no volunteer time since we would use existing assessments. We can detect articles marked as good but had its quality deteriorate over time as well.

-- とある白い猫 chi? 21. august 2015, kell 21:06 (EEST)

We could try. What should we do? Ivo (arutelu) 21. august 2015, kell 22:23 (EEST)
So, first thing needed is to decide on a translation of Labels. Our current idea is "Wikipedia Labels X" in a manner of "Wikipedia Labels edit quality".
Second, we need the translation of en:Wikipedia:Labels and its sub pages to Estonian. I can help with this process where I'll copy paste the pages for you and you can simply translate them.
Third, we need the generated list in m:Research:Revision scoring as a service/Word lists/et processed where items would be reviewed by a human. "Bad words" and "Informal words" would need to be populated.
Our task would start at this point where we would generate a wiki labels campaign based on above work for the community to review. This would involve people labeling about 2,000 revisions (as good faith or bad faith and as productive or damaging).
It sounds more complicated than it really is. We tend to achieve everything listed (aside from the 2000 handcoding) in a few days in a hackathon per language even though we are "distracted" by the rest of the event.
-- とある白い猫 chi? 23. august 2015, kell 10:54 (EEST)
I created Vikipeedia:Märgendid. It corresponds to en:Wikipedia:Labels. You can copy everything there and we will do the translation.
About m:Research:Revision scoring as a service/Word lists/et -- do I understand correctly that we need to review the list that has been automatically generated (https://gist.github.com/Ladsgroup/cc22515f55ae3d868f47#file-etwiki) and select the words that go to "Bad words" and "Informal words"? What's the difference between the two?  Taavi|  26. august 2015, kell 19:24 (EEST)
Certainly. SO let me explain your latter question first. So bad words are more swear words, words you would remove on any page. This would be swear words for example. Informal words would be worlds like hello or hahahaha which would be acceptable on talk pages but not articles. Of course even curse words get their articles but you needed worry about that. AI can figure that one out. :) I would recommend working on m:Research:Revision scoring as a service/Word lists/et where |list-badwords= and |list-informal= can be added to the template.
I will start copying wikilabels pages for you on the page you linked. Try translating these three pages, I will create a few more based on the translations in the header. :)
-- とある白い猫 chi? 28. august 2015, kell 22:19 (EEST)
Awesome! So next item on the list is a human to process the existing word list we have. So please take a look at m:Research:Revision scoring as a service/Word lists/et. Words in "generated list" were generated using a TF-IDF approach and are words common in reverted revisions but not in other revisions. We need a human to review these and differentiate them into 3 lists:
  • Bad words (|list-badwords=): These would be words unwelcome anywhere on the wiki such as swear words.
  • Informal words (|list-badwords=): These would be words unwelcome in articles but would be OK in talk pages. In English words like Hello and Hahahahaha would be examples of this.
  • Non problematic words. Feel free to mention these on m:Research talk:Revision scoring as a service/Word lists/et or ignore them.
Based on this information we will generate a language utility for Estonian, generate a revert model (based on reverts) and start the edit quality wikilabels campaign.
-- とある白い猫 chi? 30. august 2015, kell 20:11 (EEST)
@とある白い猫: There are still few pages missing: campaigns and participants. I have a question about the word lists. You say that the words in the lists originate from reverted revisions (and browsing the generated list, one can recognize some of the words used by vandals in Estonian Wikipedia in the past). Some of these words are not offensive in any way, but nevertheless were used by vandals. For example "animal", "kill", "tšmir" (the last one is not even a word in any language I know), etc. Should these non-offensive words that were actually used by some vandals, be included in the badwords list? I'm trying to understand how the word lists are used by the software.  Taavi|  30. august 2015, kell 20:44 (EEST)
We are not too concerned with how offensive the word is. We also do not care if they are meaningful. Consider these two questions:
  1. "Would you normally revert a revision containing it in any page?" (these would be "bad words")
  2. "Would you normally revert a revision containing it only in articles?" (these would be "informal words")
In English Wikipedia for example we see words like "Wheels", "Jew" and "Nazi" dominating vandalism. None of these words are offensive like swear words are. If the algorithm detects the addition of such words in an article on relevant topics (say Nazi in articles on WW2) it wouldn't flag it outright. This is the power of AI (chisel) over your edit filters (sledgehammer). Feel free to add words that you would expect to see in revisions you would revert that our TF-IDF approach did not detect. We trust the intuition of members of the community.

Wikiproject Erasmus Prize Winners[muuda lähteteksti]

Dear fellow wikipedians,

My apologies for using English here, please help translate if you are able.
Wikipedia has been awarded the Erasmus Prize 2015. This prize is awarded annually to a person or institution that has made an exceptional contribution to culture, society or social science. The King of the Netherlands will present the award on 25 November. This will create media attention which will hopefully result in plenty of new volunteers. Prior to the award ceremony we would like to write and improve articles on former Erasmus Prize winners. All 80 former laureates should be notable enough to merit an article.

Please join the project and help us provide our fellow laureates with articles.

Wikimania 2016 scholarships ambassadors needed[muuda lähteteksti]

Hello! Wikimania 2016 scholarships will soon be open; by the end of the week we'll form the committee and we need your help, see Scholarship committee for details.

If you want to carefully review nearly a thousand applications in January, you might be a perfect committee member. Otherwise, you can volunteer as "ambassador": you will observe all the committee activities, ensure that people from your language or project manage to apply for a scholarship, translate scholarship applications written in your language to English and so on. Ambassadors are allowed to ask for a scholarship, unlike committee members.

Wikilabels localization, final few things[muuda lähteteksti]

Hello all, we have concluded the older campaigns for English, Portuguese, Persian and Turkish which have concluded recently which was partially why we had this gap. So we are very close in launching the edit quality campaign for this wiki as well. All we need is the translation of the relevant entry on m:Wiki labels/Interface translation and m:Wiki labels/Interface translation/Edit quality. We are very excited to expand our work to include this wiki and can start the campaign as soon as we have the two pages translated. Thanks! -- とある白い猫 chi? 11. oktoober 2015, kell 20:18 (EEST)

One last thing, one thing we do is we auto label revisions we think are likely good these include revisions that are not reverted in a while and revisions that were made by users with higher access (such as sysop). What user groups aside from sysop are "trusted" on this wiki? User groups I see are: bot, bureaucrat, flow-bot, sysop. -- とある白い猫 chi? 23. oktoober 2015, kell 01:41 (EEST)

Your attention please: feedback about the visual editor will soon be centralized on www.mediawiki.org[muuda lähteteksti]

Hello again. Please excuse the English. Palun aita emakeelde tõlkida. Aitäh!

This is an update from the Editing team about redirecting local pages for feedback about the visual editor to the board on mediawiki.org. This is now technically feasible and will happen in early 2016. It applies to several wikis where such pages are inactive or have low traffic, including this wiki. We think this will help us in being more effective while processing feedback from a larger pool of wikis, not just the biggest ones. Please read our previous announcement for more information; we thought we would double-check that this community is informed and agrees with the change. Please notice that if at least one community member here expressly commits to taking care of the local page, the redirect will not be necessary at this time, though. If you'd like to step up and be that person, please let me know within one week: we'll need to establish a clear process as soon as possible so that this person knows when and how to escalate issues to Phabricator or to Community Liaisons, and can receive useful tips based on our experience.

Thanks for your understanding, Elitre (WMF) 14. detsember 2015, kell 20:20 (EET)

Wikimania 2016: call for proposals is open![muuda lähteteksti]

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 (arutelu) 19. detsember 2015, kell 11:41 (EET) Please, can someone translate this message? Thanks.

Happy Public Domain Day![muuda lähteteksti]

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 (arutelu) 2. jaanuar 2016, kell 14:38 (EET)

2016 WMF Strategy consultation[muuda lähteteksti]

Palun aita emakeelde tõlkida

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 (arutelu) 18. jaanuar 2016, kell 21:06 (EET)

Wikimania 2016: call for posters, discussions and trainings[muuda lähteteksti]

Hi people,
the calls for posters, discussions and trainings for Wikimania 2016 are officially opened, you can find all the relevant links on the conference wiki:

https://wikimania2016.wikimedia.org/wiki/Submissions

The calls will be closed on March 20.

Posters will be reviewed just to make sure that there aren't things which are too much out of scope. Since we have a whole village we will surely find places to attach them, even if we they will be a lot!

Discussions will be managed by a guiding committee who will work on the wiki to meld all the proposals and suggestions.

Trainings will be reviewed by the programme committee. Please note that we request that each training has at least 3-5 interested attendees in order to be put in the programme.

By the beginning of April we will have a first list of all the accepted proposals.

If you have questions we suggest you to ask them on the discussion pages on wiki, so that everyone will be able to see them (and their answers, of course).

We are looking forward to read your ideas! --Yiyi (arutelu) 29. veebruar 2016, kell 17:23 (EET)

Updates to wiki search auto completion are arriving 10 March[muuda lähteteksti]

Hello!

Palun aita emakeelde tõlkida. Aitäh!

The completion suggester beta feature will become the default at the first group of wikis on Thursday, 10 March. This initial rollout will start with some of the smaller wikis to ensure the change happens in an organized way. The remaining wikis will receive the update on Wednesday, 16 March. This update brings three major improvements to search. Improved search result ordering, a tolerance for a small number of spelling errors, and suggests fewer typos.

Since December 2015, 19,000 editors have already opted into the completion suggester beta feature. Contributors are encouraged to try out the feature ahead of the release. Please share any comments on the Completion Suggester discussion page in any language.

To learn more about the work of the Discovery department and other improvements to search, please check out the Wikimedia blog. Read about CirrusSearch, the MediaWiki extension that makes wiki search possible. - User:CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 8. märts 2016, kell 00:09 (EET)

Server switch 2016[muuda lähteteksti]

The Wikimedia Foundation will be testing its newest data center in Dallas. This will make sure Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia wikis can stay online even after a disaster. 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. /User:Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18. aprill 2016, kell 00:07 (EEST)

Machine translation support enabled today for Content Translation[muuda lähteteksti]

Hello, machine translation support for Content Translation (beta feature) has now been extended and enabled for users of Estonian Wikipedia using Yandex. It can be used when translating Wikipedia articles into Estonian with Content Translation. To start using this service, please choose ‘’Yandex.Translate’’ from the ‘’Automatic Translation’’ dropdown menu that you see on the sidebar after you start translating an article. Please note, machine translation is available from all the languages that are supported by Yandex.Translate, but Content Translation can still be used in the usual manner for translating from all languages, with or without machine translation support.

Wikimedia Foundation’s Legal team and Yandex had collaborated earlier to work out an agreement that allows the use of Yandex.Translate without compromising Wikipedia’s policy of attribution of rights, privacy of our users and brand representation. Since November 2015, Yandex machine translation has been used for articles translated for Wikipedias in many languages. Details about Yandex translation services, including a summary of the contract are available on this page. More information about the machine translation services in Content Translation is available on this page. We request you to kindly take a look at these pages.

We have tested the service for use on the Estonian Wikipedia, but there could be unknown problems that we are not aware of yet. Please do let us know on our Project Talk page or phabricator if you face any problems using Content Translation. This message is only in English and we will be very grateful if it could be translated into Estonian for other users of this Wikipedia. Thank you.

Translation of the week/Translation candidates[muuda lähteteksti]

Hello! Sometimes I comment on the meta page m:Translation of the week/Translation candidates and I've noticed that recently the number of candidates and votes has been relatively low. More importantly, there is some unbalance in the group of 5-7 editors that usually comment, with 2-3 it-N users, 1-2 es-N, 1 sv-N, 1 zh-N. Is there any users from different language editions who would like to join? Suggesting articles to be translated may be considered just a game, but still it is a fun game once in a while and at least 2 to 4 language translation are added every week so it does have an impact on the global perception of a topic so it is worth that the selection represent the global language community. So, I though it would be nice to leave a reminder to some "minor" wikipedia to take a look...

Can anyone translate this request and post it on a village pump? No hurry.--Alexmar983 (arutelu) 1. juuli 2016, kell 10:27 (EEST)

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[muuda lähteteksti]

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!

Best, Moon team at Wikimedia Deutschland 1. juuli 2016, kell 17:10 (EEST)

IMPORTANT: Admin activity review[muuda lähteteksti]

Hello. A new 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 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 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. TarmoK (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, Rschen7754 8. juuli 2016, kell 04:46 (EEST)

Compact Language Links enabled in this wiki today[muuda lähteteksti]

Screenshot of Compact Language Links interlanguage list

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). Based on several factors, this shorter list of languages is expected to be more relevant for them and valuable for finding similar content in a language known to them. More information about compact language links can be found in the documentation.

From today onwards, compact language links has been enabled as the default listing of interlanguage links on this wiki. However, using the button at the bottom, you will be able to see a longer list of all the languages the article has been written in. The setting for this compact list can be changed by using the checkbox under User Preferences -> Appearance -> Languages

The compact language links feature has been tested extensively by the Wikimedia Language team, which developed it. However, in case there are any problems or other feedback please let us know on the project talk page. It is to be noted that on some wikis the presence of an existing older gadget that was used for a similar purpose may cause an interference for compact language list. We would like to bring this to the attention of the admins of this wiki. Full details are on this phabricator ticket (in English).

Due to the large scale enablement of this feature, we have had to use MassMessage for this announcement 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. Thank you.

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

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!
