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

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

Umfrage zum FFW-Portal[Bearbeiten]

Das neue Förderprogramm Freies Wissen soll dabei helfen, große Ideen zur Verbesserung der Wikimedia-Projekte schneller und besser Realität werden zu lassen. Teil des Förderprogramms ist ein Portal, auf dem gemeinsam Ideen zu Projekten entwickelt werden können. Auch die Entscheidung über die unterstützen Projekte soll auf dem Portal selber getroffen werden. Dazu gibt es noch bis heute Nacht eine Umfrage zu den Funktionen des neuen Portals. Ich würde mich freuen, wenn es auch aus der Wikinews-Community auch Feedback gäbe - insbesondere zu der Frage, wie das Portal in die verschiedenen WM-Projekte sinnvoll eingebunden werden sollte. Die Umfrage und mehr Infos zum FFW findet Ihr hier. --Sebastian Sooth (WMDE) (Diskussion) P.S.: Und natürlich ist das nicht die letzte Gelegenheit zur Diskussion dazu, der nächste Schritt werden dann die konkreten Umsetzungsvorschläge sein, die auch wieder auf WP:FFW veröffentlicht werden.

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

This is a message from the 2015 Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee. Translations are available.

Wikimedia Foundation logo - vertical (2012-2016).svg

Greetings,

I am pleased to announce that nominations are now being accepted for the 2015 Wikimedia Foundation Elections. This year the Board and the FDC Staff are looking for a diverse set of candidates from regions and projects that are traditionally under-represented on the board and in the movement as well as candidates with experience in technology, product or finance. To this end they have published letters describing what they think is needed and, recognizing that those who know the community the best are the community themselves, the election committee is accepting nominations for community members you think should run and will reach out to those nominated to provide them with information about the job and the election process.

This year, elections are being held for the following roles:

Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is the decision-making body that is ultimately responsible for the long term sustainability of the Foundation, so we value wide input into its selection. There are three positions being filled. More information about this role can be found at the board elections page.

Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC)
The Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) makes recommendations about how to allocate Wikimedia movement funds to eligible entities. There are five positions being filled. More information about this role can be found at the FDC elections page.

Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) Ombud
The FDC Ombud receives complaints and feedback about the FDC process, investigates complaints at the request of the Board of Trustees, and summarizes the investigations and feedback for the Board of Trustees on an annual basis. One position is being filled. More information about this role can be found at the FDC Ombudsperson elections page.

The candidacy submission phase lasts from 00:00 UTC April 20 to 23:59 UTC May 5 for the Board and from 00:00 UTCApril 20 to 23:59 UTC April 30 for the FDC and FDC Ombudsperson. This year, we are accepting both self-nominations and nominations of others. More information on this election and the nomination process can be found on the 2015 Wikimedia elections page on Meta-Wiki.

Please feel free to post a note about the election on your project's village pump. Any questions related to the election can be posted on the talk page on Meta, or sent to the election committee's mailing list, board-elections -at- wikimedia.org

On behalf of the Elections Committee,
-Gregory Varnum (User:Varnent)
Coordinator, 2015 Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee

Support request with team editing experiment project[Bearbeiten]

Dear tech ambassadors, instead of spamming the Village Pump of each Wikipedia about my tiny project proposal for researching team editing (see here: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Research_team_editing), I have decided to leave to your own discretion if the matter is relevant enough to inform a wider audience already. I would appreciate if you could appraise if the Wikipedia community you are more familiar with could have interest in testing group editing "on their own grounds" and with their own guidance. In a nutshell: it consists in editing pages as a group instead of as an individual. This social experiment might involve redefining some aspects of the workflow we are all used to, with the hope of creating a more friendly and collaborative environment since editing under a group umbrella creates less social exposure than traditional "individual editing". I send you this message also as a proof that the Inspire Campaign is already gearing up. As said I would appreciate of *you* just a comment on the talk page/endorsement of my project noting your general perception about the idea. Nothing else. Your contribution helps to shape the future! (which I hope it will be very bright, with colors, and Wikipedia everywhere) Regards from User:Micru on meta.

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

Sorry for English, I hope someone translates this.
Pywikibot (then "Pywikipediabot") was started back in 2002. In 2007 a new branch (formerly known as "rewrite", now called "core") was started from scratch using the MediaWiki API. The developers of Pywikibot have decided to stop supporting the compat version of Pywikibot due to bad performance and architectural errors that make it hard to update, compared to core. If you are using pywikibot compat it is likely your code will break due to upcoming MediaWiki API changes (e.g. T101524). It is highly recommended you migrate to the core framework. There is a migration guide, and please contact us if you have any problem.

There is an upcoming MediaWiki API breaking change that compat will not be updated for. If your bot's name is in this list, your bot will most likely break.

Thank you,

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

This is a message regarding the proposed 2015 Free Bassel banner. Translations are available.

Hi everyone,

This is to inform all Wikimedia contributors that a straw poll seeking your involvement has just been started on Meta-Wiki.

As some of your might be aware, a small group of Wikimedia volunteers have proposed a banner campaign informing Wikipedia readers about the urgent situation of our fellow Wikipedian, open source software developer and Creative Commons activist, Bassel Khartabil. An exemplary banner and an explanatory page have now been prepared, and translated into about half a dozen languages by volunteer translators.

We are seeking your involvement to decide if the global Wikimedia community approves starting a banner campaign asking Wikipedia readers to call on the Syrian government to release Bassel from prison. We understand that a campaign like this would be unprecedented in Wikipedia's history, which is why we're seeking the widest possible consensus among the community.

Given Bassel's urgent situation and the resulting tight schedule, we ask everyone to get involved with the poll and the discussion to the widest possible extent, and to promote it among your communities as soon as possible.

(Apologies for writing in English; please kindly translate this message into your own language.)

Thank you for your participation!

Zwei Fragen[Bearbeiten]

1) Warum wird die Funktion des Wikinews:Aufmachers nicht mehr benutzt? Ich würde es begrüßen, wenn die wieder eingeführt werden würde.
2) Es ist eher ein Vorschlag. In der französischen Hauptseite werden die aktuellsten Nachrichten immer per Schriftzug oben angezeigt. Warum gibt es das nicht hier? Zweiter Vorschlag, eine Infobox wie in der spanischen Wikinews zu machen, in welcher jedes Land einer Infobox mit Karte und Flagge eingebunden wird, in dem die letzten Nachrichten des Landes vermerkt sind. Liebe Grüße TheAmerikaner (Diskussion) 21:50, 7. Apr. 2017 (CEST)

Ich finde Veränderungen prinzipiell gut, muss man schauen wie es gelingt und wie der Aufwand ist. Grüße, Conny (Diskussion) 11:11, 8. Apr. 2017 (CEST).

Archivbilder[Bearbeiten]

Ich bin gegen die Einbindung von Bildern, welche nichts mit dem Artikel zu tun haben. Wer sich informieren möchte, kann den Links beispielsweise zum Flugzeugtyp folgen und anschauen. Es erzeugt beim Leser Verwirrung (sucht Artikel und Realitätsbezug der nicht vorhanden ist), der Begriff Archivbild ist zudem nicht richtig definiert. Danke für Meinungen, Conny (Diskussion) 12:17, 19. Apr. 2017 (CEST).

Ich bin auch dagegen. Persönlich würe ich lieber Pressebiler benutzen. Ich weiß aber nicht, ob das mit den Lizenzen kompatibel ist. Die großen Medien verwenden auch Bilder mit dem Verweis auf die Agentur (DPA, REUTERS, ....) --TheAmerikaner (Diskussion) 09:14, 1. Mai 2017 (CEST)
Das geht leider (meistens) nicht, bei Fragen zu Lizenzen helfe ich dir gern. Siehe auch [1] . Grüße dir, Conny (Diskussion) 12:14, 21. Mai 2017 (CEST).
@Conny: Aber vielleicht, dass man sie nur in Wikinews veröffentlicht über einen eigegen Uploader. Jedenfalls kann man auf einigen Websites, zum Besipiel beipolitischen Themenin den USA oder anderen Staaten auf den Seiten gucken. Zu 95 Prozent sind die Bilder auf US-Regierungsseiten gemeinfrei oder mit den Lizenzen von Commons kompatibel. Flickr bietet über einen Lizenzbutton oben links verschiedene Lizenzen zur Auswahl, die auch für Wiki-Seiten geeignet sind. Da kann man ja dann ggf. vorbeischauen. --TheAmerikaner (Diskussion) 21:40, 22. Mai 2017 (CEST)

Proposal to improve Wikinews (Bitte übersetzen Sie dies in DEUTSCH)[Bearbeiten]

Bitte übersetzen Sie dies in DEUTSCH / Please translate this to German

News needs to be NEW. We have a constant battle with time. Often the articles get stale and we feel bad about losing an important article.

There are a couple of things which should be highlighted.

• First: Often there is only one author for an article. It is primarily due to the factor of time. We can't wait for someone to add/contribute to the article.

• Second: And this one is very general. Often, we are free, and wandering around the Wikinews project. Sometimes reading the archived articles and discussions, or sometimes, the other language Wikinews.

I often do that. I search for interesting articles on Spanish Wikinews, sometimes German, French and Russian too. Sometimes, it is really helpful. Instead of wandering here and there [on the internet] for a story amongst so many crowd-pulling articles with misleading headlines.

So, what I have to say is: When you are free (let's assume you speak two languages A and B and your home wiki is A), please go to B Wikinews and translate an article from B to A. And at the same time, translate one article from A and submit it for review on B.

Translating articles from one language to another is better than writing from scratch. And it saves time. But please note that each language Wikinews has different policy for foreign language sources.

It saves a lot of time, and I know because I have tried it. Other editors on A and/or B can help you adding something to the article, if this increases participation.

So, you see, one user, who was active only on A Wikinews is now fairly active member of B Wikinews and is also helping A Wikinews to improve the output.

When I counted, there were 33 Wikinews. I am not asking you to dream about each WIkinews write a different story and due to translations, we can have 33 articles on 33 projects. No, with the current number of reviewers, this is something I would call impossible.

But, you see, with time and experience, more and more editors can be capable to review articles. Besides, when you contribute to A and B, so, sooner or later, you can review on both the languages. About "reviewer" status, there is something I would like to add later.

So, we might not be able to publish 33 articles, but we can surely improve output of all the Wikinews. I was talking about "one user who knows A and B". Consider other editors knowing A and C; E and F; X, Y and A; Z and C and other combinations which makes a network. I have been trying to create a table of users vs languages they know with their proficiency and user rights.

I request all of the users to use the babel templates on their userpages. And if you do not mind, time zones. Users for the Original Reporting and accredited reporters, please provide geographical information if you are okay with sharing that information. Country, city or province, whatever you this is correct.

I request the admins to prepare a list of admins, reviewers and active editors.

Now, there are some very important things, like: what are the policies of various language Wikinews.

Each language has its own practices. So, it is very important that we understand each policy, and finally, create a policy so that the articles are acceptable on every Wikinews.

I am not asking you to abandon your local guidelines. You can and may continue writing articles as per those guidelines. The others may choose to translate it, and add those features so that it is globally acceptable.

There is also a probability that nobody translates it. Many factors including things in real life can affect that. But our aim is to improve all of the Wikinews together.

If we try to stick to the threshold policy, made by considering all of the policies of various projects, we can produce better news articles.

The main challenge is to know which articles to translate? So, I thought, why not create a page on any Wikinews, which contains a table. It will have article headlines and all languages in which we have Wikinews project. Add a tick, star, plus or any fixed symbol next to the headlines for which it is written.

So, when an editor visits the page, he or she can see what are the current articles (make sure you mention the date on which the event took place). See for which languages it has been translated and if there is a language he or she can translate, do it.

I would not expect a Canadian editor to know or understand Russian (for example) or a Polish to understand Arabic (for example), but it is not necessary. But speaking for general public and to make this task [understanding only the headlines] simpler, editors can use machine translation.

But this should be only done when you (editors) are free, on Wikinews and probably looking for something to write.

This will improve the content of Wikinews as well as contributors.

Editors who can speak more than one languages, please help translating [local] policies, style guide and other [important] regulations.

If you have any idea to make "looking for the translated articles in the table" better, please share with us.

Thank you very much for your time and patience.
