Лакский викификатор[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Нужна облегчённая версия викификатора для [[:lbe:|лакского раздела Википедии]]. Думаю, бо́льшую часть функциональности викификатора оттуда можно убрать (разве что кавычки оставить), но очень нужно добавить функцию автоматической замены единиц в тексте на заглавные i (I).

Нужно это для того, чтобы поддержать носителей лакского языка, которые привыкли набирать вместо «палочки» простую единицу (что удобно, не надо переключать раскладки), и чтобы делать лакские тексты всё-таки похожими на то, как они должны выглядеть. Заодно кроме единиц можно заменять и латинскую l (её иногда тоже пишут вместо палочки).

В Юникоде есть символ для палочки, но на него лучше не заменять, потому что он плохо отображается пока по шрифтам. По печатным текстам чисто внешне палочка — это заглавная латинская i.

Важно, чтобы заменялись не все единицы на I, а только единицы в словах. С регулярными выражениями это должно быть несложно сделать. Слова могут начинаться с палочки, содержать её в середине и в конце; поэтому более строгих правил не сформулировать.

Временный администратор лакского раздела — Участник:Yaroslav Blanter. Он может вставить получившийся код в интерфейс.

Получившийся викификатор мог бы пригодиться и в других разделах на языках, использующих «палочку». От имени участников проекта ru:ВП:П:МР заранее спасибо. Amikeco 15:28, 16 ноября 2007 (UTC)

Думаю, можно было сразу дать ссылку на статью ru:Лакский язык. Если я правильно понял, заменяться должны сочетания К1 к1 П1 п1 Т1 т1 Х1 х1 Ц1 ц1 Ч1 ч1. Непонятно с одинокой I — есть и такая буква? Её ведь саму по себе от 1 не отличишь. Возможно придётся сделать скрипт диалоговых замен, когда неясные случаи показываются пользователю с подтверждением да/нет (как например проверка орфографии во многих программах). В общем, хотелось бы больше информации о языке, какие именно уже существующие в Викификаторе замены можно оставить, и я вполне могу написать такой скрипт. P.S. Предлагаю дальнейшее обсуждение куда-нибудь перенести, например в [[:lbe:]] ∴ AlexSm 19:54, 16 ноября 2007 (UTC)
Собственно, смотрите здесь примеры текстов; а здесь — http://forum.k1urh.ru/viewtopic.php?t=3 — есть даже самоучитель в djvu, в котором можно найти какие-то ещё ответы, а также словари.
Одинокая 1 действительно кажется проблемной, но, насколько я представляю, в сев.-кавк. языках она может быть только перед гласной и не может быть сама отдельным словом — это сокращает число сочетаний. Как я понял, в лакском 1 не означает звука, встречается только в сочетаниях с согласными, поэтому её обработку реализовать в этом разделе не нужно вообще (но для других кавказских разделов это могло бы понадобиться; вот примеры из кабардино-черкесского языка: [1], [2]). Amikeco 04:15, 17 ноября 2007 (UTC)
Одиноко используемой I в лакском языке нет. Еще я где-то встречал, как лингвисты называют эту палочку, но не могу найти. --Barkalik 20:15, 8 декабря 2007 (UTC)
Прошу прощения, я почти забыл про эту дискуссию. Только просьба не предлагать мне тексты, а давать конкретные рецепты. Значит всё-таки простая замена в сочетаниях К1 к1 П1 п1 Т1 т1 Х1 х1 Ц1 ц1 Ч1 ч1 «1» на «I»? Тогда достаточно скопировать ту часть ru:MediaWiki:Common.js, которая вызывает Editpage.js, скопировать ту часть ru:MediaWiki:Editpage.js, которая добавляет Викификатор (плюс другие полезные функции тоже можно оставить), потом скопировать ru:MediaWiki:Wikificator.js, добавить в него txt = txt.replace(/([КкПпТтХхЦцЧч])1/g, '$1I') и возможно выбросить что-то лишнее. P.S. Уберите из MediaWiki:Edittools лишнее, например [Участник:] и многие шаблоны тут все равно не работаютAlexSm 19:26, 14 декабря 2007 (UTC)
Посмотрите пожалуйста на Cyrillic/Latin case checker bot -- в нём есть ряд автозамен букв, но только в ссылках и названиях статей. Если нужно как-то его поменять или улучшить, напишите на той странице. --Yurik (обсуждение) 14:01, 14 декабря 2012 (UTC)

Betawiki: better support for your language in MediaWiki[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Dear community. I am writing to you to promote a special wiki called Betawiki. This wiki facilitates the localisation (l10n) of the MediaWiki interface. You may have changed many messages here to use your language in the interface, but if you would log in to for example the Japanese language Wiktionary, you would not be able to use the interface as well translated as here. In fact, of over 1,700 messages in the core of MediaWiki, 11 messages have been translated. Betawiki also supports the translation of messages for well over 100 extensions, with over 1,550 messages. Translators for over 70 languages contribute their work to MediaWiki this way every month.

If you wish to contribute to better support of your language in MediaWiki, as well as for many MediaWiki extensions, please visit Betawiki, create an account and request translator privileges. You can see the current status of localisation of your language on MediaWiki.org and do not forget to get in touch with others that may already be working on your language on Betawiki.

If you have any further questions, please let me know on my talk page on Betawiki. We will try and assist you as much as possible, for example by importing all messages from a local wiki for you to start with, if you so desire.

You can also find us on the Freenode IRC network in the channel #mediawiki-i18n where we would be happy to help you get started.

Thank you very much for your attention and I do hope to see some of you on Betawiki soon! Cheers! Siebrand@Betawiki 16:51, 13 декабря 2007 (UTC)

Not a translation, but the main sense. Не перевод, но общий смысл: есть такой сайт — BetaWiki — в котором можно выложить переводы лакского интерфейса отсюда так, чтобы они могли использоваться и в других проектах на таком же наборе скриптов (MediaWiki). На каком-то этапе это, может, и будет интересно, но пока не остро актуально, по моему мнению. — Amikeco 20:33, 13 декабря 2007 (UTC)

The LocalisationUpdate extension has gone live[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

The LocalisationUpdate extension is now enabled for all Wikimedia projects. From now on new localisations that become available in SVN will become available to your project within 24 hours. Your localisations get into SVN from translatewiki.net typically within a day and at worst in two days. This is a huge improvement from the old practice where the localisations became available with new software. This could take weeks, even months.

The localisations done by our community at translatewiki.net are committed to SVN typically every day. When the system messages in English are the same as the local messages, they will now be inserted in a file and are available for use in all our projects in a timely manner

What this means for you[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Local messages have an impact on the performance of our system. It is best when messages are as much as possible part of the system messages. In order to remove unnecessary duplication, all the messages that have a local localisation and are exactly the same as the system message will be removed. What we ask you to do is to compare and proof read the messages in translatewiki.net and the local messages. You can then either remove local messages when the translatewiki.net message is to be preferred or, you can update the message at translatewiki.net.

Messages that are specific to your project will have to stay as they are. You do want to check if the format and the variables of the message are still the same.

Why localise at translatewiki.net[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

When you localise at translatewiki.net, your messages will be used in all Wikimedia projects and eventually in all MediaWiki based projects. This is how we provide the standard support for your language. When messages change, at translatewiki.net you will be prompted to revisit your translations. Localising is more efficient because we have innovated the process to make you more efficient; there is text explaining about messages and we have applied AJAX technology to reduce the number of clicks you have to make.

How can we improve the usability for your language[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

We expect that with the implementation of LocalisationUpdate the usability of MediaWiki for your language will improve. We are now ready to look at other aspects of usability for your language as well. There are two questions we would like you to answer: Are there issues with the new functionality of the Usability Initiative Does MediaWiki support your language properly

The best way to answer the first question is to visit the translatewiki.net. Change the language to your language, select the “vector” skin and add the advanced tool bar in in the preferences and check out the new functionality. And make some changes in your user page. When there is a need to improve on the localisation, please make the necessary changess . It should update your localisation straight away. We would like you to report each issue individually at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Usability_issues.

When there are problems with the support of MediaWiki for your language, we really want to know about this. It is best to report each issue separately. In this way there will be no large mass of issues to resolve but we can address each issue on its own. Consider issues with the display of characters, the presentation of your script, the position of the side bar, the combination of text with other languages, scripts. It is best to try this in an environment like the prototype wiki as it provides you with a clean, basic and up to date environment. The prototype wiki is available for five languages but you can select any of them, change the preferences to your language and test out MediaWiki for your language.

We would like you to report each issue individually at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Language_issues. The issues you raise will all be assessed. It is important to keep each issue separate, because this will make it easier to understand the issues and find solutions.

проект Связность[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Привет,

мы очень хотим исследовать лакский язык на связность, но для этого нам очень нужна страница MediaWiki:Disambiguationspage, настроенная примерно так, как по ссылкам: ru:MediaWiki:Disambiguationspage/de:MediaWiki:Disambiguationspage/fr:MediaWiki:Disambiguationspage. Можно ли попросить сделать её для нас? Заранее спасибо! Lvova 18:59, 12 июня 2010 (UTC)

  • У нас нет страниц неоднозначностей, в этом разделе пока совсем другие проблемы--Yaroslav Blanter 17:52, 16 июня 2010 (UTC)
    Что мешает создать шаблон "неоднозначность" сейчас, на будущее, а не годом позже? --Rave 16:47, 18 июня 2010 (UTC)
    Здесь нет никого, кроме меня, а я статьи по-лакски не пишу. Хотите, создайте. При нынешней активности на мете раздел может быть закрыт или перенесён в инкубатор задолго до того, как тут кто-нибудь появится.--Yaroslav Blanter 17:37, 18 июня 2010 (UTC)
    Спасибо за пояснение. Жаль, что всё не было так же понятно после первой реплики. Lvova 17:43, 18 июня 2010 (UTC)
    Давайте я тогда подробнее объясню, я думал, Вы знаете ситуацию. После сибирского раздела был создан Языковой комитет, который занимается открытием новых разделов. Сейчас все новые разделы должны готовиться в инкубаторе, и их оттуда выпускают уже с несколькими сотнями статей и как минимум с пятью активными редакторами. Так что все разделы с менее чем 200 статьями (кажется, без исключений) - это созданные ещё до этого мёртвые разделы, за ними либо вообще никто не смотрит, либо, как тут, раз в несколько дней заглядывает человек, не знающий языка, просто проверяет, что всё в порядке. Эти разделы Вам сейчас просто не нужны, писать в них что-то - эти потеря времени. Проще на Мете отслеживать по списку Википедий - если где-то быстро растёт число статей, значит, раздел ожил, и через какое-то время может начать заботиться не только о количестве статей, но и о качестве, категориях и т.д. На моей памяти так полгода назад ожил калмыцкий (xal).--Yaroslav Blanter 18:20, 18 июня 2010 (UTC)
    Знала наполовину - то есть не знала, что раньше открывали разделы без всякого контроля за количеством участников. Спасибо за ответ от нас обоих. Lvova 20:23, 18 июня 2010 (UTC)

2010 Fundraising Is Almost Here[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

Hello Wikipedians, my name is Sam and I am working for the Wikimedia Foundation during the 2010 Fundraiser. My job is to be the liaison between your community and the Foundation. This year's fundraiser is intended to be a collaborative and global effort; we recognize that banner messages which may perform well in the United States don't necessarily translate well, or appeal to international audiences.

I'm contacting you as I am currently looking for translators who are willing to contribute to this project by helping translate and localize messages into different languages and suggesting messages that would appeal to your readers on the Fundraising Meta Page. We've started the setup on meta for both banner submission, statistical analysis, and grouping volunteers together.
Use the talk pages on meta, talk to your local communities, talk to others, talk to us, and add your feedback to the proposed messages as well! I look forward to working with you during this year's fundraiser. If someone could translate this message I would really appreciate it so that everyone is able to understand our goals and contribute to this year's campaign. Sam Chapman

Давайте разбудим эту википедию[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

У меня есть небольшой план действий для того чтобы попробовать разбудить этот проект.

Интерфейс[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Это самое главное: Надо перевести интерфейс с русского или английского на лакский. Видеть сайт с правильно переведённым меню на родном языке полностью меняет чуство и отношение к нему - после перевода люди поймут, что это серьёзный язык, и что на нём действительно можно писать энциклопедию.

Переводить интерфейс на разные языки теперь намного легче, чем раньше. На сайте http://www.translatewiki.net можно с лёгкостью переводить сообщения не только с английского, но и с русского. Спустя несколько дней после перевода в translatewiki.net, переводы обновляются и здесь.

В отличие от написания статей, здесь надо всего лишь переводить короткие фразы и это очень легко.

Все, кто знает лакский язык: пожалуйста, создайте учётную запись на сайте http://www.translatewiki.net и попросите права переводчика (translator rights). Если у вас что-нибудь не получается, обратитесь ко мне, и я вам помогу это наладить.

Палочка[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Мы в 2011 году и пора начать пользоваться настоящей юникодовой палочкой. В Кабардино-Черкесской Википедии ею уже пользуются (эта википедия очень хорошо развивается в инкубаторе и скоро откроется).

Есть два лёгких способа вводить палочку:

  1. Зайти в Спецсимволы->Кириллица. Палочка находится между буквами 'ї' и 'Й'.
  2. Ещё лучше: Установить на своём компьютере раскладку с палочкой. Напишите мне электропочту на amir.aharoni@mail.huji.ac.il и я вам её вышлю.

Эмблема[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Надо создать новую эмблему. В большинстве википедий она обновилась почти год назад. Сделать это я могу сам, только скажите мне: "Википедия - Тархъансса энциклопедия" - правильный перевод? Или может стоит его обновить?

  • Перевод правильный, мы долго с носителями обсуждали--Yaroslav Blanter 21:34, 10 марта 2011 (UTC)

Создание статей[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Несколько идей для написания новых статей:

Обсуждение[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Амир, тут нет ни одного человека, говорящего по-лакски. Люди приходят, делают правки, и навсегда пропадают. Мы уже и по форумам пробовали людей собирать - энтузиазма хватает максимум на пару недель, потом снова никого нет. Видимо, надо просто ждать, пока кто-нибудь появится.--Yaroslav Blanter 21:33, 10 марта 2011 (UTC)

Я вижу, что нет. Но попробовать не вредно.
Я заметил, что жаловались на то, что тяжело переводить с английского. Есть сравнительно недавняя возможность переводить с русского и я посчитал правильным обратить на это внимание.
И кстати, я почему-то не вижу ни одного имени в списке администраторов. --Амир Э. Аарони 21:55, 10 марта 2011 (UTC)
Администраторов и нет. У меня были пару месяцев временные права, я тут чистил по возможности, тогда же и логотип загрузил. Потом кончились, постоянные мне стюарды не дадут, глобальный откат у меня есть, а ходить каждые два месяца к стюардам за временными правами мне лень. Что касается статей, мы когда-то создали десяток статей лакской тематики по-русски, отметив их шаблоном к переводу. Одну, кажется, про Махачкалу, не то что дописали, но пару фраз по-лакски добавили. Остальные так и висят. Думаю, если появится хоть один активный участник, как это было, например, в калмыцком разделе после четырёх лет неактивности, всё само собой получится, а не появится - так и мы ничего не сделаем. --Yaroslav Blanter 08:35, 11 марта 2011 (UTC)

Announcing Wikipedia 1.19 beta[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Wikimedia Foundation is getting ready to push out 1.19 to all the WMF-hosted wikis. As we finish wrapping up our code review, you can test the new version right now on beta.wmflabs.org. For more information, please read the release notes or the start of the final announcement.

The following are the areas that you will probably be most interested in:

  • Faster loading of javascript files makes dependency tracking more important.
  • New common*.css files usable by skins instead of having to copy piles of generic styles from MonoBook or Vector's css.
  • The default user signature now contains a talk link in addition to the user link.
  • Searching blocked usernames in block log is now clearer.
  • Better timezone recognition in user preferences.
  • Improved diff readability for colorblind people.
  • The interwiki links table can now be accessed also when the interwiki cache is used (used in the API and the Interwiki extension).
  • More gender support (for instance in logs and user lists).
  • Language converter improved, e.g. it now works depending on the page content language.
  • Time and number-formatting magic words also now depend on the page content language.
  • Bidirectional support further improved after 1.18.

Report any problems on the labs beta wiki and we'll work to address them before they software is released to the production wikis.

Note that this cluster does have SUL but it is not integrated with SUL in production, so you'll need to create another account. You should avoid using the same password as you use here. — Global message delivery 16:21, 15 января 2012 (UTC)

Language support group for Lak[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

The Wikimedia Foundation has brought together a new team of developers who are dedicated to language support. This team is to support all the languages and consequently it is not realistic to expect that the team members can provide proper support for your language. It is for this reason that we are looking for volunteers who will make up a language support team.

This language support team will be asked to provide us with information about their language. Such information may need to be provided either to us or on a website that we will indicate to you. Another activity will be to test software that will likely have an effect on the running of the MediaWiki software. We are looking for people who clearly identify their ability. Formal knowledge is definitely appreciated.

As much of the activity will be concentrated on translatewiki.net, it will be a plus when team members know how to localise at translatewiki.net.

Update on IPv6[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it, as well as the full version of this announcement on Meta)

The Wikimedia Foundation is planning to do limited testing of IPv6 on June 2-3. If there are not too many problems, we may fully enable IPv6 on World IPv6 day (June 6), and keep it enabled.

What this means for your project:

  • At least on June 2-3, 2012, you may see a small number of edits from IPv6 addresses, which are in the form "2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334". See e.g. w:en:IPv6 address. These addresses should behave like any other IP address: You can leave messages on their talk pages; you can track their contributions; you can block them. (See the full version of this announcement for notes on range blocks.)
  • In the mid term, some user scripts and tools will need to be adapted for IPv6.
  • We suspect that IPv6 usage is going to be very low initially, meaning that abuse should be manageable, and we will assist in the monitoring of the situation.

Read the full version of this announcement on how to test the behavior of IPv6 with various tools and how to leave bug reports, and to find a fuller analysis of the implications of the IPv6 migration.

2011 Picture of the Year competition[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

македонскиnorsk bokmålpolski

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2011 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We are interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year 2011. Any user registered at Commons or a Wikimedia wiki SUL-related to Commons with more than 75 edits before 1 April 2012 (UTC) is welcome to vote and, of course everyone is welcome to view!

Detailed information about the contest can be found at the introductory page.

About 600 of the best of Wikimedia Common's photos, animations, movies and graphics were chosen –by the international Wikimedia Commons community– out of 12 million files during 2011 and are now called Featured Pictures.

From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons Features Pictures of all flavors.

Help decide about more than $10 million of Wikimedia donations in the coming year[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it)

Hi,

As many of you are aware, the Wikimedia Board of Trustees recently initiated important changes in the way that money is being distributed within the Wikimedia movement. As part of this, a new community-led "Funds Dissemination Committee" (FDC) is currently being set up. Already in 2012-13, its recommendations will guide the decisions about the distribution of over 10 million US dollars among the Foundation, chapters and other eligible entities.

Now, seven capable, knowledgeable and trustworthy community members are sought to volunteer on the initial Funds Dissemination Committee. It is expected to take up its work in September. In addition, a community member is sought to be the Ombudsperson for the FDC process. If you are interested in joining the committee, read the call for volunteers. Nominations are planned to close on August 15.

Wikidata is getting close to a first roll-out[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.)

As some of you might already have heard Wikimedia Deutschland is working on a new Wikimedia project. It is called m:Wikidata. The goal of Wikidata is to become a central data repository for the Wikipedias, its sister projects and the world. In the future it will hold data like the number of inhabitants of a country, the date of birth of a famous person or the length of a river. These can then be used in all Wikimedia projects and outside of them.

The project is divided into three phases and "we are getting close to roll-out the first phase". The phases are:

  1. language links in the Wikipedias (making it possible to store the links between the language editions of an article just once in Wikidata instead of in each linked article)
  2. infoboxes (making it possible to store the data that is currently in infoboxes in one central place and share the data)
  3. lists (making it possible to create lists and similar things based on queries to Wikidata so they update automatically when new data is added or modified)

It'd be great if you could join us, test the demo version, provide feedback and take part in the development of Wikidata. You can find all the relevant information including an FAQ and sign-up links for our on-wiki newsletter on the Wikidata page on Meta.

For further discussions please use this talk page (if you are uncomfortable writing in English you can also write in your native language there) or point me to the place where your discussion is happening so I can answer there.

Fundraising localization: volunteers from outside the USA needed[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Please translate for your local community

Hello All,

The Wikimedia Foundation's Fundraising team have begun our 'User Experience' project, with the goal of understanding the donation experience in different countries outside the USA and enhancing the localization of our donation pages. I am searching for volunteers to spend 30 minutes on a Skype chat with me, reviewing their own country's donation pages. It will be done on a 'usability' format (I will ask you to read the text and go through the donation flow) and will be asking your feedback in the meanwhile.

The only pre-requisite is for the volunteer to actually live in the country and to have access to at least one donation method that we offer for that country (mainly credit/debit card, but also real-time banking like IDEAL, E-wallets, etc...) so we can do a live test and see if the donation goes through. All volunteers will be reimbursed of the donations that eventually succeed (and they will be low amounts, like 1-2 dollars)

By helping us you are actually helping thousands of people to support our mission of free knowledge across the world. Please sing up and help us with our 'User Experience' project! :) If you are interested (or know of anyone who could be) please email ppena@wikimedia.org. All countries needed (excepting USA)!

Thanks!

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons.

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Wikidata phase 1 (language links) coming to this Wikipedia[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg

Sorry for writing in English. I hope someone can translate this locally.

Wikidata has been in development for a few months now. It is now time for the roll-out of the first part of it on your Wikipedia. Phase 1 is the support for the management of language links. It is already being used on the Hungarian, Hebrew, Italian and English Wikipedias. The next step is to enable the extension on all other Wikipedias. We have currently planned this for March 6.

What is Wikidata?[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Wikidata is a central place to store data that you can usually find in infoboxes. Think of it as something like Wikimedia Commons but for data (like the number of inhabitants of a country or the length of a river) instead of multimedia. The first part of this project (centralizing language links) is being rolled out now. The more fancy things will follow later.

What is going to happen?[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Language links in the sidebar are going to come from Wikidata in addition to the ones in the wiki text. To edit them, scroll to the bottom of the language links, and click edit. You no longer need to maintain these links by hand in the wiki text of the article.

Where can I find more information and ask questions?[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Editors on en:wp have created a great page with all the necessary information for editors and there is also an FAQ for this deployment. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

Convert complex templates to Lua to make them faster and more powerful[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

(Please consider translating this message for the benefit of your fellow Wikimedians)

Greetings. As you might have seen on the Wikimedia tech blog or the tech ambassadors list, a new functionality called "Lua" is being enabled on all Wikimedia sites today. Lua is a scripting language that enables you to write faster and more powerful MediaWiki templates.

If you have questions about how to convert existing templates to Lua (or how to create new ones), we'll be holding two support sessions on IRC next week: one on Wednesday (for Oceania, Asia & America) and one on Friday (for Europe, Africa & America); see m:IRC office hours for the details. If you can't make it, you can also get help at mw:Talk:Lua scripting.

If you'd like to learn about this kind of events earlier in advance, consider becoming a Tech ambassador by subscribing to the mailing list. You will also be able to help your fellow Wikimedians have a voice in technical discussions and be notified of important decisions.

Wikidata phase 2 (infoboxes) coming to this Wikipedia[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg

Sorry for writing in English. I hope someone can translate this. If you understand German better than English you can have a look at the announcement on de:Wikipedia:Kurier.

A while ago the first phase of Wikidata was enabled on this Wikipedia. This means you are getting the language links in each article from Wikidata. It is soon time to enable the second phase of Wikidata (infoboxes) here. We have already done this on the [first 11 Wikipedias] (it, he, hu, ru, tr, uk, uz, hr, bs, sr, sh) and things are looking good. The next step is English Wikipedia. This is planned for April 8. If everything works out fine we will deploy on all remaining Wikipedias on April 10. I will update this part of the FAQ if there are any issues forcing us to change this date. I will also sent another note to this village pump once the deployment is finished.

What will happen once we have phase 2 enabled here? Once it is enabled in a few days you will be able to make use of the structured data that is available on Wikidata in your articles/infoboxes. It includes things like the symbol for a chemical element, the ISBN for a book or the top level domain of a country. (None of this will happen automatically. Someone will have to change the article or infobox template for this to happen!)

How will this work? There are two ways to access the data:

  • Use a parser function like {{#property:p169}} in the wiki text of the article on Yahoo!. This will return “Marissa Mayer” as she is the chief executive officer of the company.
  • For more complicated things you can use Lua. The documentation for this is here.

We are working on expanding the parser function so you can for example use {{#property:chief executive officer}} instead of {{#property:p169}}. The complete plan for this is here.

Where can I test this? You can already test it on test2.

Where can I find more information and ask questions? We have collected the main questions in an FAQ for this deployment. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

A while ago the first phase of Wikidata was enabled on this Wikipedia. This means you are getting the language links in each article from Wikidata. We have now enabled the second phase of Wikidata (infoboxes) here. We have already done this on the [first 11 Wikipedias] (it, he, hu, ru, tr, uk, uz, hr, bs, sr, sh) a month ago and two days ago on the English Wikipedia. Today all the remaining Wikipedias followed.

What does having phase 2 enabled here mean? You are now able to make use of the structured data that is available on Wikidata in your articles/infoboxes. It includes things like the symbol for a chemical element, the ISBN for a book or the top level domain of a country. (None of this will happen automatically. Someone will have to change the article or infobox template for this to happen!) The current state is just the beginning though. It will be extended based on feedback we get from you now.

How will this work? There are two ways to access the data:

  • Use a parser function like {{#property:p159}} in the wiki text of the article on Wikimedia Foundation. This will return “San Francisco” as that is the headquarter location of the non-profit.
  • For more complicated things you can use Lua. The documentation for this is here.

We are working on expanding the parser function so you can for example use {{#property:headquarter location}} instead of {{#property:p159}}. The complete plan for this is here.

Where can I test this? You can test it on test2 if you don't want to do it in an article here.

Where can I find more information and ask questions? We have collected the main questions in an FAQ for this deployment. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

[en] Change to section edit links[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

The default position of the "edit" link in page section headers is going to change soon. The "edit" link will be positioned adjacent to the page header text rather than floating opposite it.

Section edit links will be to the immediate right of section titles, instead of on the far right. If you're an editor of one of the wikis which already implemented this change, nothing will substantially change for you; however, scripts and gadgets depending on the previous implementation of section edit links will have to be adjusted to continue working; however, nothing else should break even if they are not updated in time.

Detailed information and a timeline is available on meta.

Ideas to do this all the way to 2009 at least. It is often difficult to track which of several potential section edit links on the far right is associated with the correct section, and many readers and anonymous or new editors may even be failing to notice section edit links at all, since they read section titles, which are far away from the links.

Right now your Wikipedia does not have any local documents on VisualEditor, and we hope that your community can change that. To find out about how you can help with translations visit the TranslationCentral for VisualEditor and read the easy instructions on bringing information to your Wikipedia. The User Guide and the FAQ are very important to have in your language.

We want to find out as much as we can from you about VisualEditor and how it helps your Wikipedia, and having local pages is a great way to start. We also encourage you to leave feedback on Mediawiki where the community can offer ideas, opinions, and point out bugs that may still exist in the software that need to be reported to Bugzilla. If you are able to speak for the concerns of others in English on MediaWiki or locally I encourage you to help your community to be represented in this process.

If you can help translate the user interface for VisualEditor to your language, you can help with that as well. Translatewiki has open tasks for translating VisualEditor. A direct link to translate the user interface is here. You can see how we are doing with those translations here. You need an account on Translatewiki to translate. This account is free and easy to create.

If we can help your community in any way with this process, please let me know and I will do my best to assist your Wikipedia with this |exciting development. You can contact me on my meta talk page or by email. You can also contact Patrick Earley for help with translations and documents on Mediawiki. We look forward to working with you to bring the VisualEditor experience to your Wikipedia! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 19:07, 30 июля 2013 (UTC)

HTTPS for users with an account[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

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

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

Notifications[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

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

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

Greetings!

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

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

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

Please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions or comments about this new tool. For more information, visit this project hub and this help page. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 18:54, 4 октября 2013 (UTC)

Introducting Beta Features[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

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

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

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

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

Here are the first features you can test this week:

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

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

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

Enjoy, and don't forget to let developers know what you think! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 20:16, 5 ноября 2013 (UTC)

VisualEditor coming to this wiki[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

Hello. Please excuse the English. I would be grateful if you can translate this message!

VisualEditor is coming to this project on December 2, 2013. VisualEditor is software in development to allow people to edit pages in MediaWiki without needing to learn wikitext syntax (like typing [[ to start a link). It is already available and in use on some Wikipedia projects. Please see mw:Help:VisualEditor/FAQ for more information.

When this software arrives, you will have the option to use it or to use the current wikitext editor. When you press “edit”, you will get the new VisualEditor software. To use the wikitext editor, you can press “edit source”. For more information about how to use VisualEditor, see mw:Help:VisualEditor/User guide.

We hope that this software will be useful to people in your community, and we can really use your help to make it better! Please let us know if you find any problems. If you're willing and able, please report the issue in bugzilla in the "VisualEditor" product. If you would prefer not, please explain the issue you found on the central feedback page on mediawiki.org. Once VisualEditor is made available, if there are any urgent problems, like an unexpected bug suddenly causing widespread severe problems, please e-mail James Forrester, the Product Manager, at jforrester@wikimedia.org for immediate attention.

We would also appreciate help with translation with the pages about VisualEditor here and on MediaWiki.org, and its user interface. To translate the user interface, start by creating an account at TranslateWiki. Once your account request is approved, all you need to do is select your language from this list. This will give you a list of individual lines and paragraphs. The English original will be on one side, with the option to “edit” on the other. Pressing “edit” will open an edit window where you can work.

The User Guide is another important document. To translate this, simply go to the MediaWiki.org page, and select “translate this page”. Your language should be available from the drop-down menu on the right. If you want to help with translations and would like to talk about how, please leave a message for me on my talk page.

Thank you, and happy editing! -- Mdennis (WMF) (talk) 19:48, 15 ноября 2013 (UTC)

Request for comment on Commons: Should Wikimedia support MP4 video?[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

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

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

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

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

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

Please join this RfC -- and share your advice.

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

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

We look forward to a constructive discussion with you, so we can make a more informed decision together on this important topic. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 06:47, 16 января 2014 (UTC)

Universal Language Selector will be enabled by default again on this wiki by 21 February 2014[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

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

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

You can read the announcement and the development plan for more information. Apologies for writing this message only in English. Thank you. Runa

Catalan Culture Challenge[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

I apologize if this message is not in your language. Please help translate it.

The Catalan-speaking world... Want to find out more? From March 16 to April 15 we will organise the Catalan Culture Challenge, a Wikipedia editing contest in which victory will go to those who start and improve the greatest number of articles about 50 key figures of Catalan culture. You can take part by creating or expanding articles on these people in your native language (or any other one you speak). It would be lovely to have you on board. :-)

We look forward to seeing you!

Changes to the default site typography coming soon[дакьин дуван | править исходный текст]

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

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

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