Review of initial updates on Wikimedia movement strategy process[modifitgar il code]

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.

Overview #2 of updates on Wikimedia movement strategy process[modifitgar il code]

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

As we mentioned last month, the Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout 2017. This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve.

Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list, and posted on Meta-Wiki. Each month, we are sending overviews of these updates 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 overview of the updates that have been sent since our message last month:

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

We invite you to join the movement strategy conversation (now through April 15)[modifitgar il code]

06:09, 18 mars 2017 (CET)

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

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)wikimedia.org.

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[modifitgar il code]

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 reading@wikimedia.org. Thanks!

Prototype for editing Wikidata infoboxes on Wikipedia[modifitgar il code]

Hello,

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[modifitgar il code]

Hello all,

(Hilf bitte mit, in deine Sprache zu übersetzen)

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.

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!

Improved search in deleted pages archive[modifitgar il code]

Hilf bitte mit, in deine Sprache zu übersetzen

During Wikimedia Hackathon 2016, the Discovery team worked on one of the items on the 2015 community wishlist, namely enabling searching the archive of deleted pages. This feature is now ready for production deployment, and will be enabled on all wikis, except Wikidata.

Right now, the feature is behind a feature flag - to use it on your wiki, please go to the Special:Undelete page, and add &fuzzy=1 to the URL, like this: https://test.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3AUndelete&fuzzy=1. Then search for the pages you're interested in. There should be more results than before, due to using ElasticSearch indexing (via the CirrusSearch extension).

We plan to enable this improved search by default on all wikis soon (around August 1, 2017). If you have any objections to this - please raise them with the Discovery team via email or on this announcement's discussion page. Like most Mediawiki configuration parameters, the functionality can be configured per wiki. Once the improved search becomes the default, you can still access the old mode using &fuzzy=0 in the URL, like this: https://test.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3AUndelete&fuzzy=0

Please note that since Special:Undelete is an admin-only feature, this search capability is also only accessible to wiki admins.

Improvements coming soon to Recent Changes[modifitgar il code]

Hello

Sorry to use English. Hilf bitte mit, in deine Sprache zu übersetzen! Vielen Dank.

In short: starting on 26 September, New Filters for Edit Review (now in Beta) will become standard on Recent Changes. They provide an array of new tools and an improved interface. If you prefer the current page you will be able to opt out. Learn more about the New Filters.

What is this feature again?

This feature improves Special:RecentChanges and Special:RecentChangesLinked (and soon, Special:Watchlist – see below).

Based on a new design, it adds new features that ease vandalism tracking and support of newcomers:

  • Filtering - filter recent changes with easy-to-use and powerful filters combinations, including filtering by namespace or tagged edits.
  • Highlighting - add a colored background to the different changes you are monitoring. It helps quick identification of changes that matter to you.
  • Bookmarking to keep your favorite configurations of filters ready to be used.
  • Quality and Intent Filters - those filters use ORES predictions. They identify real vandalism or good faith intent contributions that need help. They are not available on all wikis.

You can know more about this project by visiting the quick tour help page.

Concerning RecentChanges

Starting on 26 September, New Filters for Edit Review will become standard on Recent Changes. We have decided to do this release because of a long and successful Beta test phase, positive feedback from various users and positive user testing.

Some features will remain as Beta features and will be added later. Learn more about those different features.

If your community has specific concerns about this deployment or internal discussion, it can request to have the deployment to their wikis delayed to October 1, if they have sensible, consistent with the project, actionable, realistic feedback to oppose (at the development team's appreciation).

You will also be able to opt-out this change in your preferences.

Concerning Watchlists

Starting on September 19, the Beta feature will have a new option. Watchlists will have all filters available now on the Beta Recent Changes improvements.

If you have already activated the Beta feature "⧼eri-rcfilters-beta-label⧽", you have no action to take. If you haven't activated the Beta feature "⧼eri-rcfilters-beta-label⧽" and you want to try the filters on Watchlists, please go to your Beta preferences on September 19.

How to be ready

Please share this announcement!

Do you use Gadgets that change things on your RecentChanges or Watchlist pages, or have you customized them with scripts or CSS? You may have to make some changes to your configuration. Despite the fact that we have tried to take most cases into consideration, some configurations may break. The Beta phase is a great opportunity to have a look at local scripts and gadgets: some of them may be replaced by native features from the Beta feature.

Please ping me if you have questions.

RfC regarding "Interlinking of accounts involved with paid editing to decrease impersonation"[modifitgar il code]

There is currently a RfC open on Meta regarding "requiring those involved with paid editing on Wikipedia to link on their user page to all other active accounts through which they advertise paid Wikipedia editing business."

Note this is to apply to Wikipedia and not necessarily other sister projects, this is only to apply to websites where people are specifically advertising that they will edit Wikipedia for pay and not any other personal, professional, or social media accounts a person may have.

Improvements coming soon on Watchlists[modifitgar il code]

Hello

Sorry to use English. Hilf bitte mit, in deine Sprache zu übersetzen! Vielen Dank.

In short: starting on June 18, New Filters for Edit Review (now in Beta) will become standard on Watchlists. They provide an array of new tools and an improved interface. If you prefer the current page you will be able to opt out. Learn more about the New Filters.

What is this feature again?

This feature is used by default on Special:RecentChanges, Special:RecentChangesLinked and as a Beta feature on Special:Watchlist.

Based on a new design, that feature adds new functions to those pages, to ease vandalism tracking and support of newcomers:

  • Filtering - filter recent changes with easy-to-use and powerful filters combinations, including filtering by namespace or tagged edits.
  • Highlighting - add a colored background to the different changes you are monitoring. It helps quick identification of changes that matter to you.
  • Bookmarking to keep your favorite configurations of filters ready to be used.
  • Quality and Intent Filters - those filters use ORES predictions. They identify real vandalism or good faith intent contributions that need help. They are not available on all wikis.

You can know more about this project by visiting the quick tour help page.

About the release on Watchlists

Over 70,000 people have activated the New Filters beta, which has been in testing on Watchlist for more than eight months. We feel confident that the features are stable and effective, but if you have thoughts about these tools or the beta graduation, please let us know on the project talk page. In particular, tell us if you know of a special incompatibility or other issue that makes the New Filters problematic on your wiki. We’ll examine the blocker and may delay release on your wiki until the issue can be addressed.

The deployment will start on June 18 or on June 25, depending on the wiki (check the list). After the deployment, you will also be able to opt-out this change directly from the Watchlist page and also in your preferences.

How to be ready?

Please share this announcement!

If you use local Gadgets that change things on your Watchlist pages, or have a customized scripts or CSS, be ready. You may have to make some changes to your configuration. Despite the fact that we have tried to take most cases into consideration, some configurations may break. The Beta phase is a great opportunity to have a look at local scripts and gadgets: some of them may be replaced by native features from the Beta feature.

as announced previously, permission handling for CSS/JS pages has changed: only members of the interface-admin (Oberflächenadministratoren) group, and a few highly privileged global groups such as stewards, can edit CSS/JS pages that they do not own (that is, any page ending with .css or .js that is either in the MediaWiki: namespace or is another user's user subpage). This is done to improve the security of readers and editors of Wikimedia projects. More information is available at Creation of separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JS. If you encounter any unexpected problems, please contact me or file a bug.

Thanks!

Multilingual Shared Templates and Modules[modifitgar il code]

Hello rm-wiki community! (Hilf bitte mit, in deine Sprache zu übersetzen)

I recently organized a project to share templates and modules between wikis. It allows modules and templates to be “language-neutral”, and store all text translations on Commons. This means that it is enough to copy/paste a template without any changes, and update the translations separately. If someone fixes a bug or adds a new feature in the original module, you can copy/paste it again without any translation work. My bot DiBabelYurikBot can help with copying. This way users can spend more time on content, and less time on updating and copying templates. Please see project page for details and ask questions on talk page.

P.S. I am currently running for the Wikimedia board, focusing on content and support of multi-language communities. If you liked my projects like maps, graphs, or this one, I will be happy to receive your support. (any registered user group can vote). Thank you! --Yurik (🗨️) 08:27, 11 matg 2019 (CEST)

Google Code-In will soon take place again! Mentor tasks to help new contributors![modifitgar il code]

Hi everybody! Google Code-in (GCI) will soon take place again - a seven week long contest for 13-17 year old students to contribute to free software projects. Tasks should take an experienced contributor about two or three hours and can be of the categories Code, Documentation/Training, Outreach/Research, Quality Assurance, and User Interface/Design. Do you have any Lua, template, gadget/script or similar task that would benefit your wiki? Or maybe some of your tools need better documentation? If so, and you can imagine enjoying mentoring such a task to help a new contributor, please check out mw:Google Code-in/2019 and become a mentor. If you have any questions, feel free to ask at our talk page. Many thanks in advance! --Martin Urbanec 08:28, 5 november 2019 (CET)

Movement Learning and Leadership Development Project[modifitgar il code]

Hello

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!

Additional interface for edit conflicts on talk pages[modifitgar il code]

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) 15:15, 26 favrer 2020 (CET)

Feedback on movement names[modifitgar il code]

Hallo. Apologies if you are not reading this message in your native language. Hilf bitte mit, in deine Sprache zu übersetzen if necessary. Danke!

There are a lot of conversations happening about the future of our movement names. We hope that you are part of these discussions and that your community is represented.

Since 16 June, the Foundation Brand Team has been running a survey in 7 languages about 3 naming options. There are also community members sharing concerns about renaming in a Community Open Letter.

Our goal in this call for feedback is to hear from across the community, so we encourage you to participate in the survey, the open letter, or both. The survey will go through 7 July in all timezones. Input from the survey and discussions will be analyzed and published on Meta-Wiki.

Thanks for thinking about the future of the movement, --The Brand Project team, 21:42, 2 fanadur 2020 (CEST)

Universal Code of Conduct – 2021 consultations[modifitgar il code]

Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2[modifitgar il code]

Hilf bitte mit, in deine Sprache zu übersetzen

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a universal baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire Wikimedia movement and all its projects. The project is currently in Phase 2, outlining clear enforcement pathways. You can read more about the whole project on its project page.

Drafting Committee: Call for applications[modifitgar il code]

The Wikimedia Foundation is recruiting volunteers to join a committee to draft how to make the code enforceable. Volunteers on the committee will commit between 2 and 6 hours per week from late April through July and again in October and November. It is important that the committee be diverse and inclusive, and have a range of experiences, including both experienced users and newcomers, and those who have received or responded to, as well as those who have been falsely accused of harassment.

To apply and learn more about the process, see Universal Code of Conduct/Drafting committee.

2021 community consultations: Notice and call for volunteers / translators[modifitgar il code]

From 5 April – 5 May 2021 there will be conversations on many Wikimedia projects about how to enforce the UCoC. We are looking for volunteers to translate key material, as well as to help host consultations on their own languages or projects using suggested key questions. If you are interested in volunteering for either of these roles, please contact us in whatever language you are most comfortable.

To learn more about this work and other conversations taking place, see Universal Code of Conduct/2021 consultations.

  • What involvement should candidates have during the election?

While additional questions may be added, the Movement Strategy and Governance team wants to provide time for community members and affiliates to consider and prepare ideas on the confirmed questions before the call opens. We apologize for not having a complete list of questions at this time. The list of questions should only grow by one or two questions. The intention is to not overwhelm the community with requests, but provide notice and welcome feedback on these important questions.

Do you want to help organize local conversation during this Call?

Contact the Movement Strategy and Governance team on Meta, on Telegram, or via email at msg(_AT_)wikimedia.org.

Reach out if you have any questions or concerns. The Movement Strategy and Governance team will be minimally staffed until January 3. Please excuse any delayed response during this time. We also recognize some community members and affiliates are offline during the December holidays. We apologize if our message has reached you while you are on holiday.

Best,

Movement Strategy and Governance

Community Wishlist Survey 2022 is coming. Help us![modifitgar il code]

The Community Wishlist Survey 2022 starts in less than two weeks (Monday 10 January 2022, 18:00 UTC). We, the team organizing the Survey, need your help.

Only you can make the difference

How many people will hear and read about the Survey in their language? How many will decide to participate? Will there be enough of you to vote for a change you would like to see? It all depends on you, volunteers.

Why are we asking?

  • We have improved the documentation. It's friendlier and easier to use. This will mean little if it's only in English.
  • Thousands of volunteers haven't participated in the Survey yet. We'd like to improve that, too. Three years ago, 1387 people participated. Last year, there were 1773 of them. We hope that in the upcoming edition, there will be even more. You are better than us in contacting Wikimedians outside of wikis. We have prepared some images to share. More to come.

What is the Community Wishlist Survey?

It's an annual survey that allows contributors to the Wikimedia projects to propose and vote for tools and platform improvements. Long years of experience in editing or technical skills are not required.

Thanks, and be safe and successful in 2022! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 04:15, 29 december 2021 (CET)

The Call for Feedback: Board of Trustees elections is now open and will close on 7 February 2022.

With this Call for Feedback, the Movement Strategy and Governance team is taking a different approach. This approach incorporates community feedback from 2021. Instead of leading with proposals, the Call is framed around key questions from the Board of Trustees. The key questions came from the feedback about the 2021 Board of Trustees election. The intention is to inspire collective conversation and collaborative proposal development about these key questions.

Join the conversation.

Updates on the Universal Code of Conduct Enforcement Guidelines Review[modifitgar il code]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hello everyone,

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees released a statement on the ratification process for the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement Guidelines.

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire movement. The UCoC and the Enforcement Guidelines were written by volunteer-staff drafting committees following community consultations.

The revised guidelines were published 24 January 2022 as a proposed way to apply the policy across the movement. There is a list of changes made to the guidelines after the enforcement draft guidelines review. Comments about the guidelines can be shared on the Enforcement Guidelines talk page on Meta-wiki.

To help to understand the guidelines and process, the Movement Strategy and Governance (MSG) team will be hosting Conversation Hours on 4 February 2022 at 15:00 UTC, 25 February 2022 at 12:00 UTC, and 4 March 2022 at 15:00 UTC. Join the conversation hours to speak with the UCoC project team and drafting committee members about the updated guidelines and voting process.

The timeline is available on Meta-wiki. The voting period is March 7 to 21. All eligible voters will have an opportunity to support or oppose the adoption of the Enforcement guidelines, and share why. See the voting information page for more details.

Many participants from across the movement have provided valuable input in these ongoing conversations. The UCoC and MSG teams want to thank the Drafting Committee and the community members for their contributions to this process.

Sincerely,

Movement Strategy and Governance

Rollout of the new audio and video player[modifitgar il code]

Hilf bitte mit, in deine Sprache zu übersetzen

Hello,

Over the next months we will gradually change the audio and video player of Wikis from Kultura to Video.js and with that, the old player won’t be accessible anymore. The new player has been active as a beta feature since May 2017.

The new player has many advantages, including better design, consistent look with the rest of our interface, better compatibility with browsers, ability to work on mobile which means our multimedia will be properly accessible on iPhone, better accessibility and many more.

The old player has been unmaintained for eight years now and is home-brewn (unlike the new player which is a widely used open source project) and uses deprecated and abandoned frameworks such as jQuery UI. Removing the old player’s code also improves performance of the Wikis for anyone visiting any page (by significantly reducing complexity of the dependency graph of our ResourceLoader modules. See this blog post.). The old player has many open bugs that we will be able to close as resolved after this migration.

The new player will solve a lot of old and outstanding issues but also it will have its own bugs. All important ones have been fixed but there will be some small ones to tackle in the future and after the rollout.

What we are asking now is to turn on the beta feature for the new player and let us know about any issues.

You can track the work in T100106

A Wikimedia Foundation Board statement calls for a ratification process where eligible voters will have an opportunity to support or oppose the adoption of the UCoC Enforcement guidelines in a vote. Wikimedians are invited to translate and share important information. For more information about the UCoC, please see the project page and frequently asked questions on Meta-wiki.

There are events scheduled to learn more and discuss:

  • A community panel recorded on 18 February 2022 shares perspectives from small- and medium-sized community participants.

Revisions to the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement Guidelines[modifitgar il code]

Hello all,

We'd like to provide an update on the work on the Enforcement Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct. After the conclusion of the community vote on the guidelines in March, the Community Affairs committee (CAC) of the Board asked that several areas of the guidelines be reviewed for improvements before the Board does its final review. These areas were identified based on community discussions and comments provided during the vote. The CAC also requested review of the controversial Note in 3.1 of the UCoC itself.

Once more, a big thank you to all who voted, especially to all who left constructive feedback and comments! The project team is working with the Board to establish a timeline for this work, and will communicate this next month.

Members of the two prior UCoC Drafting Committees have generously offered their time to help shape improvements to the Guidelines. You can read more about them and their work here, as well as read summaries of their weekly meetings in 2022.

Wikimedians have provided many valuable comments together with the vote and in other conversations. Given the size and diversity of the Wikimedia community, there are even more voices out there who can give ideas on how to improve the enforcement guidelines and add even more valuable ideas to the process. To help the Revisions committee identify improvements, input on several questions for the committee’s review is requested. Visit the Meta-wiki pages (Enforcement Guidelines revision discussions, Policy text revision discussions) to get your ideas to the Committee - it is very important that viewpoints are heard from different communities before the Committee begins drafting revision proposals.

Propose statements for the 2022 Election Compass[modifitgar il code]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hi all,

Community members in the 2022 Board of Trustees election are invited to propose statements to use in the Election Compass.

An Election Compass is a tool to help voters select the candidates that best align with their beliefs and views. The community members will propose statements for the candidates to answer using a Lickert scale (agree/neutral/disagree). The candidates’ answers to the statements will be loaded into the Election Compass tool. Voters will use the tool by entering in their answer to the statements (agree/disagree/neutral). The results will show the candidates that best align with the voter’s beliefs and views.

Here is the timeline for the Election Compass
  • July 8 - 20: Community members propose statements for the Election Compass
  • July 21 - 22: Elections Committee reviews statements for clarity and removes off-topic statements
  • July 23 - August 1: Volunteers vote on the statements
  • August 2 - 4: Elections Committee selects the top 15 statements
  • August 5 - 12: candidates align themselves with the statements
  • August 15: The Election Compass opens for voters to use to help guide their voting decision

The Elections Committee will select the top 15 statements at the beginning of August. The Elections Committee will oversee the process, supported by the Movement Strategy and Governance team. MSG will check that the questions are clear, there are no duplicates, no typos, and so on.

Best,

Movement Strategy and Governance

Vote for Election Compass Statements[modifitgar il code]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hi all,

Volunteers in the 2022 Board of Trustees election are invited to vote for statements to use in the Election Compass. You can vote for the statements you would like to see included in the Election Compass on Meta-wiki.

An Election Compass is a tool to help voters select the candidates that best align with their beliefs and views. The community members will propose statements for the candidates to answer using a Lickert scale (agree/neutral/disagree). The candidates’ answers to the statements will be loaded into the Election Compass tool. Voters will use the tool by entering in their answer to the statements (agree/disagree/neutral). The results will show the candidates that best align with the voter’s beliefs and views.

Here is the timeline for the Election Compass:

  • July 8 - 20: Volunteers propose statements for the Election Compass
  • July 21 - 22: Elections Committee reviews statements for clarity and removes off-topic statements
  • July 23 - August 1: Volunteers vote on the statements
  • August 2 - 4: Elections Committee selects the top 15 statements
  • August 5 - 12: candidates align themselves with the statements
  • August 15: The Election Compass opens for voters to use to help guide their voting decision

The Elections Committee will select the top 15 statements at the beginning of August

Best,

Movement Strategy and Governance

The Vector 2022 skin as the default in two weeks?[modifitgar il code]

The slides for our presentation at Wikimania 2022

Hello. I'm writing on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Web team. In two weeks, we would like to make the Vector 2022 skin the default on this wiki.

We have been working on it for the past three years. So far, it has been the default on more than 30 wikis, including sister projects, all accounting for more than 1 billion pageviews per month. On average 87% of active logged-in users of those wikis use Vector 2022.

It would become the default for all logged-out users, and also all logged-in users who currently use Vector legacy. Logged-in users can at any time switch to any other skins. No changes are expected for users of these skins.

About the skin[modifitgar il code]

[Why is a change necessary] The current default skin meets the needs of the readers and editors as these were 13 years ago. Since then, new users have begun using Wikimedia projects. The old Vector doesn't meet their needs.

[Objective] The objective for the new skin is to make the interface more welcoming and comfortable for readers and useful for advanced users. It draws inspiration from previous requests, the Community Wishlist Surveys, and gadgets and scripts. The work helped our code follow the standards and improve all other skins. We reduced PHP code in Wikimedia deployed skins by 75%. The project has also focused on making it easier to support gadgets and use APIs.

[Changes and test results] The skin introduces a series of changes that improve readability and usability. The new skin does not remove any functionality currently available on the Vector skin.

  • The sticky header makes it easier to find tools that editors use often. It decreases scrolling to the top of the page by 16%.
  • The new table of contents makes it easier to navigate to different sections. Readers and editors jumped to different sections of the page 50% more than with the old table of contents. It also looks a bit different on talk pages.
  • The new search bar is easier to find and makes it easier to find the correct search result from the list. This increased the amount of searches started by 30% on the wikis we tested on.
  • The skin does not negatively affect pageviews, edit rates, or account creation. There is evidence of increases in pageviews and account creation across partner communities.

[Try it out] Try out the new skin by going to the appearance tab in your preferences and selecting Vector 2022 from the list of skins.

How can editors change and customize this skin?[modifitgar il code]

It's possible to configure and personalize our changes. We support volunteers who create new gadgets and user scripts. Check out our repository for a list of currently available customizations, or add your own.

Our plan[modifitgar il code]

If no large concerns are raised, we plan on deploying in the week of October 3, 2022. If your community would like to request more time to discuss the changes, hit the button and write to us. We can adjust the calendar.

If you'd like ask our team anything, if you have questions, concerns, or additional thoughts, please ping me here or write on the talk page of the project. We will gladly answer! Also, see our FAQ. Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 06:15, 22 Settember 2022 (CEST)


Il tema Vector 2022 di default tra due settimane?[modifitgar il code]

Le slide della nostra presentazione a Wikimania 2022

Hallo, scrivo a nome del Web Team della Wikimedia Foundation. Tra due settimane, ci piacerebbe rendere Vector 2022 il tema di default di questo wiki.

Ci lavoriamo da tre anni. Finora è stato adottato da oltre 30 wiki, tra cui alcuni progetti fratelli Wikimedia, che nell'insieme rappresentano oltre un miliardo di accessi alle pagine al mese. In media l'87% degli utenti attivi connessi di questi wiki usa Vector 2022.

Diventerebbe di default per gli utenti non loggati e anche per gli utenti loggati che attualmente usano Vector Legacy (Vector 2010). Gli utenti loggati possono passare a qualunque altro tema in ogni momento. Nessun cambiamento è previsto per gli utenti di questi temi.

A proposito del tema[modifitgar il code]

[Perché è un cambiamento necessario] L'attuale tema di default andava incontro ai bisogni dei lettori e dei contributori così com'erano 13 anni fa. Nel frattempo, nuovi utenti hanno iniziato a usare i progetti Wikimedia. Il vecchio Vector non soddisfa le loro aspettative.

[Obiettivo] Lo scopo del nuovo tema è di rendere l'interfaccia più accogliente e confortevole per i lettori e più funzionale per gli utenti esperti. Trae ispirazione sia da richieste precedenti che dal Sondaggio dei desideri della comunità, da gadgets e scripts. Questo lavoro ha permesso al nostro codice di rispettare gli standard ma anche di migliorare tutti gli altri temi. Abbiamo ridotto del 75% il codice PHP dei temi Wikimedia implementati. Il progetto si è impegnato anche nel facilitare il supporto ai gadget e all'uso delle API.

[Modifiche e risultati dei test] Il tema introduce una serie di cambiamenti che migliorano la leggibilità e l'usabilità. Nel nuovo tema non è stata eliminata nessuna funzionalità attualmente disponibile su Vector.

  • L'header fisso rende più facile trovare gli strumenti che i contributori usano spesso. Diminuisce del 16% lo scorrimento verso l'alto della pagina.
  • Il nuovo indice rende più facile navigare tra le diverse sezioni. I lettori e i contributori saltano da una sezione all'altra il 50% più spesso che con il vecchio indice. Anche le pagine di discussione hanno un aspetto leggermente diverso.
  • La nuova barra di ricerca è più facile da individuare e rende più facile trovare il risultato corretto cercato a partire da una lista. Questo ha aumentato del 30% il volume delle ricerche effettuate sui wiki che abbiamo testato.
  • Il tema non influenza negativamente il numero di accesso alle pagine, il tasso di modifiche, o la creazione di account. È anzi stato riscontrato un aumento delle pagine visitate e della creazione di account nelle comunità partner.

[Provalo] Prova il nuovo tema andando nella scheda "Aspetto" delle tue Preferenze e seleziona Vector 2022 nella lista dei temi.

Come fanno i contributori a modificare e a personalizzare questo tema?[modifitgar il code]

È possibile configurare e personalizzare le nostre modifiche. Diamo supporto ai volontari che creano gadget e script utente. Consulta il nostro archivio per la lista delle personalizzazioni attualmente disponibli, o aggiungici le tue.

Il nostro piano[modifitgar il code]

Se non vengono sollevate grosse problematiche, prevediamo di distribuire il tema nella settimana del 3 ottobre 2022. Se la vostra comunità desidera più tempo per discutere dei cambiamenti, premete il pulsante e scriveteci. Possiamo adattare il calendario.

Se vuoi chiedere al nostro team qualsiasi cosa, se hai domande, preoccupazioni o idee ulteriori, per favore notificami o scrivi nella pagina di discussione del progetto. Saremo lieti di risponderti! In aggiunta, puoi anche consultare le nostre FAQ. Danke!

Update on Vector 2022[modifitgar il code]

Hello. I'm sorry for not communicating in your language. I'll be grateful if you translated my message. I'm writing on behalf of the Web team working on the new skin, Vector 2022.

We wanted to apologize for the delays in the deployment of Vector 2022. We know many of you are waiting for this eagerly. We have been delaying the deployment because we have been working on the logos. It has taken us more time than originally expected. Once the logos are ready, we will let you know the exact date of deployment. We are planning for either the next (more likely) or the following week. If your wiki doesn't currently have a localized logo, we encourage you to reach out to us and we can help make one.

We invite you to get involved in the project. Contact us if you have any questions or need any help, particularly with the compatibility of gadgets and user scripts. Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 01:24, 20 october 2022 (CEST)

Invitation to attend “Ask Me Anything about Movement Charter” Sessions[modifitgar il code]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hello all,

During the 2022 Wikimedia Summit, the Movement Charter Drafting Committee (MCDC) presented the first outline of the Movement Charter, giving a glimpse on the direction of its future work, and the Charter itself. The MCDC then integrated the initial feedback collected during the Summit. Before proceeding with writing the Charter for the whole Movement, the MCDC wants to interact with community members and gather feedback on the drafts of the three sections: Preamble, Values & Principles, and Roles & Responsibilities (intentions statement). The Movement Charter drafts will be available on the Meta page here on November 14, 2022. Community wide consultation period on MC will take place from November 20 to December 18, 2022. Learn more about it here.

With the goal of ensuring that people are well informed to fully participate in the conversations and are empowered to contribute their perspective on the Movement Charter, three “Ask Me Anything about Movement Charter" sessions have been scheduled in different time zones. Everyone in the Wikimedia Movement is invited to attend these conversations. The aim is to learn about Movement Charter - its goal, purpose, why it matters, and how it impacts your community. MCDC members will attend these sessions to answer your questions and hear community feedback.

The “Ask Me Anything” sessions accommodate communities from different time zones. Only the presentation of the session is recorded and shared afterwards, no recording of conversations. Below is the list of planned events:

  • Asia/Pacific: November 4, 2022 at 09:00 UTC (your local time). Interpretation is available in Chinese and Japanese.
  • Europe/MENA/Sub Saharan Africa: November 12, 2022 at 15:00 UTC (your local time). Interpretation is available in Arabic, French and Russian.
  • North and South America/ Western Europe: November 12, 2022 at 15:00 UTC (your local time). Interpretation is available in Spanish and Portuguese.

On the Meta page you will find more details; Zoom links will be shared 48 hours ahead of the call.

Call for Movement Charter Ambassadors

Individuals or groups from all communities who wish to help include and start conversations in their communities on the Movement Charter are encouraged to become Movement Charter Ambassadors (MC Ambassadors). MC Ambassadors will carry out their own activities and get financial support for enabling conversations in their own languages. Regional facilitators from the Movement Strategy and Governance team are available to support applicants with MC Ambassadors grantmaking. If you are interested please sign up here. Should you have specific questions, please reach out to the MSG team via email: strategy2030@wikimedia.org or on the MS forum.

We thank you for your time and participation.

Opportunities open for the Ombuds commission and the Case Review Committee[modifitgar il code]

Hi everyone! The Ombuds commission (OC) and the Case Review Committee (CRC) are looking for members. People are encouraged to nominate themselves or encourage others they feel would contribute to these groups to do so. There is more information below about the opportunity and the skills that are needed.

About the Ombuds commission

The Ombuds commission (OC) works on all Wikimedia projects to investigate complaints about violations of the privacy policy, especially in use of CheckUser and Oversight (also known as Suppression) tools. The Commission mediates between the parties of the investigation and, when violations of the policies are identified, advises the Wikimedia Foundation on best handling. They may also assist the General Counsel, the Chief Executive Officer, or the Board of Trustees of the Foundation in these investigations when legally necessary. For more on the OC's duties and roles, see Ombuds commission on Meta-Wiki.

Volunteers serving in this role should be experienced Wikimedians, active on any project, who have previously used the CheckUser/Oversight tools OR who have the technical ability to understand these tools and the willingness to learn them. They must be able to communicate in English, the common language of the commission. They are expected to be able to engage neutrally in investigating these concerns and to know when to recuse when other roles and relationships may cause conflict. Commissioners will serve two-year terms (note that this is different from past years, when the terms have been for one year).

About the Case Review Committee

The Case Review Committee (CRC) reviews appeals of eligible Trust & Safety office actions. The CRC is a critical layer of oversight to ensure that Wikimedia Foundation office actions are fair and unbiased. They also make sure the Wikimedia Foundation doesn’t overstep established practices or boundaries. For more about the role, see Case Review Committee on Meta-Wiki.

We are looking for current or former functionaries and experienced volunteers with an interest in joining this group. Applicants must be fluent in English (additional languages are a strong plus) and willing to abide by the terms of the Committee charter. If the work resonates and you qualify, please apply. Committee members will serve two-year terms (note that this is different from past years, when the terms have been for one year).

Applying to join either of these groups

Members are required to sign the Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information and must be willing to comply with the appropriate Wikimedia Foundation board policies (such as the access to non-public information policy and the Foundation privacy policy). These positions requires a high degree of discretion and trust. Members must also be over 18 years of age.

If you are interested in serving in either capacity listed above, please write in English to the Trust and Safety team at ca(_AT_)wikimedia.org (to apply to the OC) or to the Legal Team at legal(_AT_)wikimedia.org (to apply to the CRC) with information about:

  • Your primary projects
  • Languages you speak/write
  • Any experience you have serving on committees, whether movement or non-movement
  • Your thoughts on what you could bring to the OC or CRC if appointed
  • Any experience you have with the Checkuser or Oversight tools (OC only)
  • Any other information you think is relevant

The deadline for applications is 31 December 2022 in any timezone.

Please feel free to pass this invitation along to any users who you think may be qualified and interested. Thank you!

On behalf of the Committee Support team,

Join the Coolest Tool Award 2022: Friday, Dec 16th, 17:00 UTC[modifitgar il code]

Interfaccia desktop: ultime novità[modifitgar il code]

Ciao, vi segnalo che le ultime novità del progetto delle Migliorie all'interfaccia desktop sono on line. Buona lettura! --Patafisik (WMF) (talk) 19:38, 4 schaner 2023 (CET)

Migliorie all'interfaccia desktop: un nuovo cambiamento in arrivo[modifitgar il code]

Hallo!

La prossima settimana il team Web di Wikimedia Foundation sposterà alcuni link della barra laterale a destra dello schermo.

Così sarà più facile utilizzare in modo intuitivo tutti i collegamenti e gli strumenti della nostra interfaccia. Con la barra laterale più corta, l'indice apparirà a sua volta più in alto sullo schermo. Quest'ultimo cambiamento sarà sigificativo soprattutto per i contributori, poiché i lettori usano il menu di sinistra molto più raramente.

Perché apportiamo questo cambiamento

Attualmente, la nostra interfaccia non fa distinzione tra collegamenti e strumenti che riguardano il wiki e collegamenti e strumenti che riguardano la pagina in sè. "Pagina principale", "Una voce a caso", "Ultime modifiche" fanno parte del primo gruppo. "Puntano qui", "Modifiche correlate", "Cita questa voce" appartengono al secondo. Questo mix confonde i nuovi lettori. Anche i nuovi contributori non hanno familiarità con ognuno di questi link e non sanno a cosa servono. Mescolando questi gruppi si rischia di demotivare le persone che sarebbero propense a scoprire spontaneamente questi strumenti.

Questa modifica risolve anche la questione della posizione del sommario. In precedenza alcuni contributori ci avevano fatto notare che il sommario sotto alla barra laterale lo faceva apparire troppo in basso nella pagina. Con questo cambiamento, il menu di sinistra (la barra laterale) diventa più corto e di conseguenza il sommario è visibile più in alto sulla pagina. Inoltre, questo cambiamento riduce lo spazio bianco sulla pagina, usandone di più per mostrare gli strumenti a destra.

Puoi saperne di più sulla funzionalità degli strumenti della pagina e il progetto delle Migliorie all'IU desktop su MediaWiki.org.

Compatibilità degli accessori

Alcuni accessori e script utente potrebbero aver bisogno di essere aggiornati o diventare obsoleti e ridondanti. Forniamo assistenza agli utenti che desiderano mantenere la compatibilità. Puoi visitare questa sezione della nostra documentazione per maggiori informazioni sulla compatibilità dei gadget.

Come far apparire i link delle lingue in cima alla Home page[modifitgar il code]

Ciao a tutti,

con la nuova interfaccia di default, Vector 2022, il pulsante delle lingue è finito in fondo alla home page, mentre nelle altre pagine si trova correttamente in alto, vedi perché. Questa eccezione della home page non piace a tutte le comunità Wikimedia. Si può risolvere aggiungendo "un titolo" ma solo con il consenso della vostra comunità.

Vi invito quindi a discutere se vi interessa avere i link delle lingue nello stesso posto delle altre pagine. Se la risposta è sì, dovreste decidere quale tra le due opzioni preferite: mostrare un messaggio di benvenuto (o un altro testo a votra scelta) come "titolo", sulla stessa linea del pulsante delle lingue, oppure non mettere nessun testo.

Copio-incollo un passaggio delle FAQ che potrebbe esservi utile per discutere, con qualche aggiunta:

  • Il "titolo della pagina" sarà mostrato su Vector 2010, Minerva, Timeless e Vector 2022. Non sarà visibile su Monobook.
  • Il "titolo" puo' essere modificato configurando MediaWiki:Mainpage-title-loggedin per gli utenti loggati e MediaWiki:Mainpage-title per per gli utenti non loggati. Per gli utenti loggati su mobile invece bisognerà modificare MediaWiki:wikimedia-mobile-mainpage-title-loggedin.
  • Date un'occhiata a come appare la home page con i pulsante delle lingue in alto aggiungendo ?vectorlanguageinmainpageheader=1 alla fine dell'URL. La home page della Wikipedia basca mostra una frase di benvenuto nel titolo. E' la stessa scelta fatta anche dalla Wikipedia in francese, che sta aspettando il cambiamento. Potete anche guardare l'esempio della Wikipedia in islandese che non ha configurato nessun titolo, quindi si vedono solo le lingue.
  • Se c'è consenso, pingatemi (o contattate il Web Team) per chiedere lo spostamento del pulsante delle lingue in alto, il team chiederà la modifica dei parametri del vostro wiki. Se preferite potete aprire direttamente un nuovo task su Phabricator, ma se volete un messaggio di benevuto basterà segnalare la vostra discussione in fondo al ticket T325362, aggiungendovi alla lista dei wiki che già richiedono il cambiamento. Una volta il cambiamento portato a termine, il pulsante delle lingue sarà visibile in alto alla home page del tema Vector 2022. Negli altri temi, la lista dei link delle lingue si troverà al suo posto di default, che è diverso per ogni tema.

It will show information about how active a discussion is, such as the date of the most recent comment. There will soon be a new "Agiuntar chapitel" button. You will be able to turn them off at Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-editing-discussion. Please tell them what you think.

Daily edit completion rate by test group: DiscussionTools (test group) and MobileFrontend overlay (control group)

An A/B test for Diskussions-Werkzeuge on the mobile site has finished. Editors were more successful with Diskussions-Werkzeuge. The Editing team is enabling these features for all editors on the mobile site.

New Project: Edit Check

The Editing team is beginning a project to help new editors of Wikipedia. It will help people identify some problems before they click "Publitgar midadas". The first tool will encourage people to add references when they add new content. Please watch that page for more information. You can join a conference call on 3 March 2023 to learn more.

Vector 2022: un cambiamento per gli utenti non connessi[modifitgar il code]

Gli Strumenti della pagina quando il menu è chiuso (vedi cerchio rosso)

Hallo,

la settimana scorsa abbiamo reso disponibile il menu degli Strumenti della pagina per gli utenti non connessi. Per gli utenti loggati, il menu era già disponibile da gennaio 2023.

Il menu permette di distinguere gli strumenti relativi alla navigazione all'interno del wiki in generale dagli strumenti relativi ad una pagina specifica. Nel primo gruppo si trovano, ad esempio, "Pagina principale" e "Una voce a caso". Nel secondo gruppo ci sono, ad esempio, "Puntano qui", "Modifiche correlate" e "Cita questa voce". Inoltre, il nuovo menu riunisce gli strumenti specifici della pagina in un unico elenco. Prima alcuni di questi link si trovavano nel menu principale (barra laterale) o nel More Menu (di fianco alla Cronologia). Il nostro proposito è che i nuovi lettori e i nuovi contributori possano capire più facilmente a cosa servono questi link.

Il menu può essere appuntato (pinned) o meno, a seconda delle necessità dell'utente. Quando è aperto è anche fisso sulla pagina, ossia rimane nella stessa posizione sullo schermo quando si scorre verso il basso. Inoltre, per gli utenti connessi il menu è anche permanente, ossia il menu resta nello stato voluto (aperto, chiuso o appuntato) quando si aggiorna la pagina o se ne apre una nuova. Per gli utenti non connessi invece il menu non è permanente. Speriamo di rendere disponibile questa caratteristica in futuro anche per loro.

Con questo cambiamento si ha anche il vantaggio che l'indice è mostrato più in alto sulla pagina. Solo raramente si deve scorrere la pagina per poter consultare l'indice. Questa è una delle preoccupazioni a cui abbiamo dato ascolto negli ultimi giorni e speriamo che questo risolva la questione.

Collaboriamo

Graph extension disabled[modifitgar il code]

Yesterday the Wikimedia Foundation noted that in the interests of the security of our users, the Graph extension was disabled. This means that pages that were formerly displaying graphs will now display a small blank area. To help readers understand this situation, communities can now define a brief message that can be displayed to readers in place of each graph until this is resolved. That message can be defined on each wiki at MediaWiki:Graph-disabled. Wikimedia Foundation staff are looking at options available and expected timelines.

Seeking volunteers for the next step in the Universal Code of Conduct process[modifitgar il code]

Hello,

As follow-up to the message about the Universal Code of Conduct Enforcement Guidelines by Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees Vice Chair, Shani Evenstein Sigalov, I am reaching out about the next steps. I want to bring your attention to the next stage of the Universal Code of Conduct process, which is forming a building committee for the Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C). I invite community members with experience and deep interest in community health and governance to nominate themselves to be part of the U4C building committee, which needs people who are:

  • Community members in good standing
  • Knowledgeable about movement community processes, such as, but not limited to, policy drafting, participatory decision making, and application of existing rules and policies on Wikimedia projects
  • Aware and appreciative of the diversity of the movement, such as, but not limited to, languages spoken, identity, geography, and project type
  • Committed to participate for the entire U4C Building Committee period from mid-May - December 2023
  • Comfortable with engaging in difficult, but productive conversations
  • Confidently able to communicate in English

The Building Committee shall consist of volunteer community members, affiliate board or staff, and Wikimedia Foundation staff.

The Universal Code of Conduct has been a process strengthened by the skills and knowledge of the community and I look forward to what the U4C Building Committee creates. If you are interested in joining the Building Committee, please either sign up on the Meta-Wiki page, or contact ucocproject(_AT_)wikimedia.org by May 12, 2023. Read more on Meta-Wiki.

Hallo !

In a few weeks, the Web Team will be performing an A/B test. This test will start within two weeks and will take two full weeks. It will be performed on Wikipedias in: English, Farsi, French, Hebrew, Korean, Portuguese, Serbian, Thai, Turkish, and Vietnamese.

Half of logged-in desktop users will see a version that shows the regions of the page separated more clearly. This version will include more borders and gray backgrounds. After two weeks, everyone will see the current white interface again. We will analyze the usage data for both and make a decision on next steps in July.

Hello there,

We are glad to announce the new members and advisors of the Elections Committee. The Elections Committee assists with the design and implementation of the process to select Community- and Affiliate-Selected trustees for the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. After an open nomination process, the strongest candidates spoke with the Board and four candidates were asked to join the Elections Committee. Four other candidates were asked to participate as advisors.

Thank you to all the community members who submitted their names for consideration. We look forward to working with the Elections Committee in the near future.

Review the Charter for the Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee[modifitgar il code]

Hello all,

I am pleased to share the next step in the Universal Code of Conduct work. The Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C) draft charter is now ready for your review.

The Enforcement Guidelines require a Building Committee form to draft a charter that outlines procedures and details for a global committee to be called the Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C). Over the past few months, the U4C Building Committee worked together as a group to discuss and draft the U4C charter. The U4C Building Committee welcomes feedback about the draft charter now through 22 September 2023. After that date, the U4C Building Committee will revise the charter as needed and a community vote will open shortly afterward.

Join the conversation during the conversation hours or on Meta-wiki.

Best,

Next year, unregistered editors will start using temporary accounts.

In 2024, editors who have not registered an account will automatically begin using temporary accounts. These editors are sometimes called "IP editors" because the IP address is displayed in the page history.

Coming soon: Reference Previews[modifitgar il code]

Eine neue Funktion wird bald in deinem Wiki eingeführt: Vorschauen für Einzelnachweise sind Popups für Einzelnachweise. Solche Popups gab es in Wikis für viele Jahre als lokale Helferleins. Nun gibt es eine zentrale Lösung, die in allen Wikis verfügbar und konsistent mit der Seitenvorschau-Funktion ist.

Vorschauen für Einzelnachweise weden für alle sichtbar sein, auch für Leser. Wenn du sie nicht sehen möchtest, kannst du sie deaktivieren. Wenn du die Helferleins Tooltips für Einzelnachweise oder Navigations-Popups nutzt, wirst du die Vorschauen für Einzelnachweise nicht sehen, sofern du das Helferlein nicht deaktivierst.

Vorschauen für Einzelnachweise waren seit 2019 eine Beta-Funktion in vielen Wikis und seit 2021 eine Standard-Funktion in einigen davon. Die Einführung ist für den 22. November geplant.

Apologies for writing in English.

The Technical Wishes team at Wikimedia Deutschland is planning to make reusing references easier. For our research, we are looking for wiki contributors willing to show us how they are interacting with references.

  • The format will be a 1-hour video call, where you would share your screen. More information here.
  • Interviews can be conducted in English, German or Dutch.
  • Compensation is available.
  • Sessions will be held in January and February.
  • Sign up here if you are interested.
  • Please note that we probably won’t be able to have sessions with everyone who is interested. Our UX researcher will try to create a good balance of wiki contributors, e.g. in terms of wiki experience, tech experience, editing preferences, gender, disability and more. If you’re a fit, she will reach out to you to schedule an appointment.

We’re looking forward to seeing you, Thereza Mengs (WMDE)

Feminism and Folklore 2024[modifitgar il code]

Hilf bitte mit, in deine Sprache zu übersetzen

Dear Wiki Community,

You are humbly invited to organize the Feminism and Folklore 2024 writing competition from February 1, 2023, to March 31, 2023 on your local Wikipedia. This year, Feminism and Folklore will focus on feminism, women's issues, and gender-focused topics for the project, with a Wiki Loves Folklore gender gap focus and a folk culture theme on Wikipedia.

You can help Wikipedia's coverage of folklore from your area by writing or improving articles about things like folk festivals, folk dances, folk music, women and queer folklore figures, folk game athletes, women in mythology, women warriors in folklore, witches and witch hunting, fairy tales, and more. Users can help create new articles, expand or translate from a generated list of suggested articles.

Organisers are requested to work on the following action items to sign up their communities for the project:

  1. Create a page for the contest on the local wiki.
  2. Set up a campaign on CampWiz tool.
  3. Create the local list and mention the timeline and local and international prizes.
  4. Request local admins for site notice.
  5. Link the local page and the CampWiz link on the meta project page.

This year, the Wiki Loves Folklore Tech Team has introduced two new tools to enhance support for the campaign. These tools include the Article List Generator by Topic and CampWiz. The Article List Generator by Topic enables users to identify articles on the English Wikipedia that are not present in their native language Wikipedia. Users can customize their selection criteria, and the tool will present a table showcasing the missing articles along with suggested titles. Additionally, users have the option to download the list in both CSV and wikitable formats. Notably, the CampWiz tool will be employed for the project for the first time, empowering users to effectively host the project with a jury. Both tools are now available for use in the campaign. Click here to access these tools

Learn more about the contest and prizes on our project page. Feel free to contact us on our meta talk page or by email us if you need any assistance.

We look forward to your immense coordination.

Thank you and Best wishes,

Enabling machine translation support, Section and Content translation tools in your Wikipedia[modifitgar il code]

Hallo Romansh Wikipedians!

Apologies as this message is not in your language, Hilf bitte mit, in deine Sprache zu übersetzen.

The WMF Language team plans to enable the Section and Content translation tools to Romansh Wikipedia by default. Also, the team is considering adding machine translation (MT) support with MinT to the tools. MinT may be providing limited support for your language, so we want to make sure it is useful for the community. For this, my team would like members of your community to:

  • Test the machine translation support in a test instance. You can paste multiple pieces of content from different Wikipedia articles and check whether the provided result is a useful starting point for a translation.
  • Give us feedback if the machine translation quality is okay to be on your Wikipedia by default, as an optional service or if it is not useful at all.
  • Let us know if you have any objections to having the Section and Content translation enabled by default in this Wikipedia.

Below is background information about the tools and how you can test them.

Background information

Content Translation has been a successful tool for editors to create content in their language. Since its release in 2015, the tool has aided the translation of more than one million articles across all languages. However, the tool is in beta in Romansh Wikipedia, limiting its discoverability and use. Being in beta also blocks enabling the Section translation in your Wikipedia.

Section Translation extends the capabilities of Content Translation to support mobile devices. On mobile, the tool will:

  • Guide you to translate one section at a time to expand existing articles or create new ones
  • Make it easy to transfer knowledge across languages anytime from your mobile device

MinT (Machine in Translation) is a machine translation service hosted in the Wikimedia Infrastructure. It is designed to provide translations from many MT models. The model available for your Wikipedia is the MADLAD-400 open-source translation model.

Our request

The MADLAD-400 MT is available for your Wiki in our test instance. We want you to test it (translate sentences and paragraphs from articles) in our test instance:https://translate.wmcloud.org. Let us know in this thread if the quality of the automatic translation generated is okay to enable it in Romansh Wikipedia along with the Section and Content translation tool.

Our plans to enable the tools and the machine translation support

We plan to deploy the tools with the MT support by the 4th of March. If there are no objections from your community, we will deploy them. We want to provide the tools in the way they best serve the community, so we are open to make further adjustments after the deployment based on the experience of the community.

We look forward to getting your feedback in this thread. Thank you!

On behalf of the WMF Language team. UOzurumba (WMF) (talk) 22:01, 14. favr 2024 (CET)[Beantworten]

@UOzurumba (WMF):, please don't enable such tools on the Romansh Wikipedia. There are already enough poorly translated articles here, and very few native Romansh speakers to check and correct them. This Wikipedia needs articles of a high linguistic quality, not machine-translated, sort-of-correct but unidiomatic content. --Terfili (talk) 22:27, 14. favr 2024 (CET)[Beantworten]

Auswahl für das Board of Trustees der Wikimedia Foundation 2024[modifitgar il code]

Diese Nachricht liegt im Meta-Wiki in weitere Sprachen übersetzt vor.

Hallo allerseits,

In diesem Jahr endet die Amtszeit von vier (4) Trustees im Board of Trustees der Wikimedia Foundation, die von Affiliates und der Community gewählt wurden [1]. Das Board of Trustees lädt das gesamte Movement ein, am diesjährigen Auswahlprozess teilzunehmen und über die freigewordenen Sitze abzustimmen.

Das Wahlkomitee wird diesen Prozess mit Unterstützung von Angestellten der Foundation beaufsichtigen [2]. Das Komitee für Board Governance hat eine Arbeitsgruppe für die Board-Auswahl ins Leben gerufen, die aus Trustees besteht, die im diesjährigen Auswahlprozess für Community und Affiliates nicht kandidieren können: Dariusz Jemielniak, Nataliia Tymkiv, Esra’a Al Shafei, Kathy Collins und Shani Evenstein Sigalov [3]. Diese Gruppe hat die Aufgabe, den Trustee-Auswahlprozess 2024 für das Board zu überwachen und dieses darüber zu informieren. Mehr Details zu den Rollen des Wahlkomitees, des Boards und der Angestellten gibt es hier [4].

Das sind die wichtigsten geplanten Daten:

  • Mai 2024: Aufruf zur Bewerbung und zum Stellen von Fragen
  • Juni 2024: Affiliates stimmen ab, um eine Shortlist aus zwölf Personen zu bestimmen (es gibt keine Shortlist, wenn sich 15 oder weniger Personen bewerben) [5]
  • Juni–August 2024: Kampagne
  • Ende August / Anfang September 2024: zweiwöchige Abstimmung durch die Community
  • Oktober–November 2024: Hintergrundüberprüfung der gewählten Personen
  • Board-Sitzung im Dezember 2024: Einführung der neuen Trustees

Du kannst auf dieser Seite im Meta-Wiki den genauen Zeitplan, das Bewerbungsverfahren, die Regeln für die Kampagne und die Kriterien für Wahlberechtigung ansehen und deine Pläne entsprechend ausrichten.

Freiwillige Wahlhelfer:innen

Eine weitere Möglichkeit, sich am Auswahlprozess 2024 zu beteiligen, ist die Teilnahme als freiwillige:r Wahlhelfer:in. Diese Freiwilligen sind Verbindungspersonen zwischen dem Wahlkomitee und ihren jeweiligen Communitys. Sie helfen dabei, sicherzustellen, dass ihre Communitys vertreten sind, und rufen diese zur Wahl auf. Erfahre auf dieser Seite im Meta-wiki mehr über das Programm und wie du teilnehmen kannst.

[5] Auch wenn die ideale Anzahl zwölf Kandidierende für vier freie Sitze sind, wird das Shortlist-Verfahren nur angewendet, wenn mehr als 15 Personen zur Auswahl stehen, da sich ansonsten die ein bis drei Kandidierenden, die es nicht durch das Verfahren schaffen, ausgeschlossen fühlen könnten und der Aufwand für die Affiliates im Verhältnis zur kleinen Anzahl sehr groß wäre.
