TINGET

Lurer du på noe? Har du et forslag eller tanker om Wikiquote å komme med? Her kan du diskutere med andre Wikiquotere. Legg til et nytt emne nederst på siden (et tips er å bruke «+»-/«Nytt emne»-knappen i toppmenyen på siden; da skjer dette automatisk).

Standardisering av artikler[rediger]

Jeg har ikke vært lenge på Wikiquote, men har bemerket meg at artikler ikke er oppsatt likt. Hvordan ønsker vi at artiklene våre skal se ut?

Tar frem noen artikler som jeg har kommet over:

Personlig synes jeg sistnevnte ser best ut. Mvh Fredrifj 7. aug 2008 kl. 21:00 (CEST)

Personlig syns jeg at Wikiquote:Stilmanual er riktig sted å sjekke hvordan ting bør se ut ;) Laaknor 9. aug 2008 kl. 14:46 (CEST)
Hehe poeng, men siden er uoversatt og uferdig:) Mvh Fredrifj 9. aug 2008 kl. 15:40 (CEST)
Hva selve siteringen angår, kan det være greit å se på Wikipedias sider om sitering, Bruk av understreking, fet skrift, kursiv og anførselstegn, og jeg tenker at spesielt det med anførselstegn er viktig. Mange av sitatene her på WQ har bare kursiv tekst, når teksten egentlig bør være vanlig men inne i anførselstegnene « og ».
Syns forøvrig både Kjetil André Aamodt og Leonardo da Vinci er sånn det bør være, med ordentlige overskrifter. --Torstein 11. aug 2008 kl. 15:22 (CEST)
Siden vi først snakker om anførseltegn - la dem inn, jeg. De ligger nå som valg øverst slik at man lett får dem inn i teksten. Laaknor 13. aug 2008 kl. 19:50 (CEST)

Ny hovedside[rediger]

Jeg prøvde for noen måneder siden å skifte forsiden vår slik at den lignet på den slovenske, som jeg syns var ganske flott. Forsøket mitt gikk ikke, mest fordi jeg ikke er kongen på css. Hvis dere har lyst og peiling kan dere ta en titt på Hovedside/Ny. --Torstein 13. aug 2008 kl. 22:29 (CEST)

For at det skal fungere, må du kopiere css-koden under «Main page design» fra sk:Redaktor:Kandy_Talbot/MainCommon.css over til MediaWiki:Common.css (husk å oppfriske siden). Dessuten må du kopiere bildene som er brukt (se filnavnene i koden) over til no.wikiquote.org, ettersom de bare ligger på sk.wikiquote.org, ikke på Commons. Kåre-Olav 31. jan 2009 kl. 14:22 (CET)
Takk for tipset. Det begynner å se ganske bra ut nå, syns jeg. ;) --Torstein 5. feb 2009 kl. 22:42 (CET)

Flytte til nb.wikiquote.org?[rediger]

Hva er holdninga til å flytte til nb.wikiquote.org? ZorroIII 24. jan 2009 kl. 16:48 (CET)

Min holdning er å følge wikipedia på dette. Er ikke stort nok community til å ha noen egentlige meninger her. Laaknor 24. jan 2009 kl. 17:33 (CET)
Støtter Laaknor her. Vi bør følge wikipedia, pga vi er for små. Mvh Fredrifj 26. jan 2009 kl. 18:49 (CET)
Jeg er sterkt uenig. Det har ikke vært noen avstemninger på om no.wq er en spesifikk bokmålsside (jeg har hvertfall ikke fått det med meg). Det ligger en del sider her med nynorsk tekst (eks Are Kalvø og Ragnar Hovland). Og er det noe som er meningsløst så er det å «oversette» nynorsk til bokmål. Det bør heller opprettes en egen nb-wq, for spesielt interesserte, hvis det i det hele tatt skulle være nødvendig å ha det. --Torstein 26. jan 2009 kl. 22:39 (CET)
Da det finnes en egen nynorsk wikiquote, så er det å anta at denne er på bokmål. Interwiki-lenkene hit fører også til «Norsk (bokmål)». Laaknor 27. jan 2009 kl. 20:59 (CET)
Det er å anta, men da blir antagelsen feil. Som sagt så har det ikke vært noen egen avgjørelse for det, så man burde i grunn anta at dette ikke er noen norsk-spesifikk side. At det står på iw-lenkene betyr heller ikke at vi er nødt til å føye oss etter de. --Torstein 28. jan 2009 kl. 06:34 (CET)

En sletteside[rediger]

Slik det er nå, har Wikiquote to slettesider. Dette fikses, slik at det bare blir en.

eller

Det er også to introduksjonsmaler. Man bør velge en av disse, noe som godt kan skje uavhengig av hvilken side vi velger. MVH 3s 24. apr 2009 kl. 12:31 (CEST)

For min del syns jeg det bare er å ta en av dem å gjøre til omdirigering til den andre. no.Wikiquote har ikke så stort miljø at det er mye som behøver å diskuteres (vi får heller endre på malene og flytte om litt i etterkant hvis det blir veldig feil). Har ingen preferanser for noen av navnene til slettesider. Laaknor 24. apr 2009 kl. 15:40 (CEST)
Da gjorde jeg «Slett» til omdirigeringsside til «Sletting» og utvidet den ene malen litt. 3s 24. apr 2009 kl. 15:54 (CEST)
Ser greit ut, det ja. De har ikke vært så mye brukt, slettesidene. --Torstein 24. apr 2009 kl. 16:03 (CEST)

Hurtigsletting[rediger]

Kan en administrator ta en kikk på Kategori:Sider som er foreslått raskt slettet? Mvh. Marius2 11. feb 2010 kl. 18:42 (CET)

Mal:Reg-velkommen[rediger]

Har nå endret Mal:Reg-velkommen. Har her rett og slett kopiert Wikipedias mal, og endret den slik at den passer til Wikiquote. Men er ikke sikker på om alt ble korrekt. Lurer derfor på om noen kan se over malen slik den er nå? Mvh. Marius2 9. mar 2010 kl. 17:51 (CET)

Nytt emne[rediger]

Hvorfor er det ikke mulighet for å trykke på en «Nytt emne»-knapp («+»-knapp på den «gamle versjonen») for å lage nye emner her på Tinget, slik det er på Wikipedia:Tinget? Eller, det er en «SKRIV EN KOMMENTAR»-knapp på siden, men den er ikke inkludert i toppmenyen. Mvh. Marius2 9. mar 2010 kl. 17:51 (CET)

Har oppdatert MediaWiki:Monobook.js så den er helt lik WP sin nå. Håper det vil hjelpe, men jeg er ikke helt sikker. Vi får se. --Torstein 10. mar 2010 kl. 19:41 (CET)
Det hjalp, ser bra ut :) Er det mulig å flytte «rediger»-knappen inntil seksjonstittel, slik som på Wikipedia (se diskusjon på Wikipedia her)? Mvh. Marius2 15. mar 2010 kl. 16:30 (CET)
Jeg la inn __NEWSECTIONLINK__ øverst på siden. V85 16. mar 2010 kl. 17:57 (CET)
For å flytte seksjonsredigering: Det er bare å importere w:MediaWiki:Change-editlink.js. (Du må ha adminstatus for å gjøre det: Enten legg den inn som et eget javascript som hver enkelt kan importere, eventuelt legg det inn i commons.js for at alle skal kunne bruke det.) V85 16. mar 2010 kl. 17:56 (CET)

Opphavsrett[rediger]

Dette er gjerne et tåpelig spørsmål, men jeg fant ikke en link til noe informasjon om dette her: Hvordan stiller Wikiquote seg med tanke på opphavsrett? De færreste som har sitater av seg her inne er døde, så sånn sett er det de har produsert fremdeles beskyttet av opphavsretten. Eller bruker vi et slags fair use argument? Det hadde jo vært passende om det var «sitatretten» som gav det opphavsrettslige til Wikisitat. ;-) V85 14. mar 2010 kl. 20:25 (CET)

Detta är ett mycket intressant spörsmål och något som jag, som är verksam på svenska Wikiquote, också har funderat på. Tydligt är att det skiljer sig ganska mycket mellan olika språkversioner. Svenska Wikiquote har inga regler alls medan tyska Wikiquote har mycket hårda regler angående källhänvisning och begränsande av "ofria citat". Se till exempel de:Wikiquote:Urheberrechte beachten.

Get involved in Wikipedia 15![rediger]

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

International-Space-Station wordmark blue.svg

As many of you know, January 15 is Wikipedia’s 15th Birthday!

People around the world are getting involved in the celebration and have started adding their events on Meta Page. While we are celebrating Wikipedia's birthday, we hope that all projects and affiliates will be able to utilize this celebration to raise awareness of our community's efforts.

Haven’t started planning? Don’t worry, there’s lots of ways to get involved. Here are some ideas:

Everything is linked on the Wikipedia 15 Meta page. You’ll find a set of ten data visualization works that you can show at your events, and a list of all the Wikipedia 15 logos that community members have already designed.

If you have any questions, please contact Zachary McCune or Joe Sutherland.

Thanks and Happy nearly Wikipedia 15!

Password Strength RFC[rediger]

Hei

Vi har stertet en RFC på Meta for å øke kravene til brukerpassord for brukere med adgang til å redigere MediaWiki:Common.js, ha adgang til Checkuser og/ eller til Oversight.

Denne typen konti får tilgang til følsomme områder av våre nettsteder, og kan gjøre stor skade i feil hender. Kravet er for øyeblikket at passordet er minimum en bokstav langt. vi vil foretrekke å gjøre om dette til at passordet må være minimum 8 bokstaver/tegn og i tillegg ikke være et av de mest vanlig brukte.

By increasing requirements on passwords for accounts with high levels of access, we hope to make Wikimedia wikis more secure for everyone. Please read the full text of the proposal here, and make your voice heard at the RFC.

Takk

2016 WMF Strategy consultation[rediger]

Hjelp til med å oversette til ditt språk

Hello, all.

The Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) has launched a consultation to help create and prioritize WMF strategy beginning July 2016 and for the 12 to 24 months thereafter. This consultation will be open, on Meta, from 18 January to 26 February, after which the Foundation will also use these ideas to help inform its Annual Plan. (More on our timeline can be found on that Meta page.)

Your input is welcome (and greatly desired) at the Meta discussion, 2016 Strategy/Community consultation.

Apologies for English, where this is posted on a non-English project. We thought it was more important to get the consultation translated as much as possible, and good headway has been made there in some languages. There is still much to do, however! We created m:2016 Strategy/Translations to try to help coordinate what needs translation and what progress is being made. :)

If you have questions, please reach out to me on my talk page or on the strategy consultation's talk page or by email to mdennis@wikimedia.org.

I hope you'll join us! Maggie Dennis via MediaWiki message delivery (diskusjon) 18. jan. 2016 kl. 20:07 (CET)Svar[svar]

Greetings! The Individual Engagement Grants (IEG) program is accepting proposals until April 12th to fund new tools, research, outreach efforts, and other experiments that enhance the work of Wikimedia volunteers. Whether you need a small or large amount of funds (up to $30,000 USD), IEGs can support you and your team’s project development time in addition to project expenses such as materials, travel, and rental space.

Server switch 2016[rediger]

Wikimedia Foundation kommer til å teste sitt nyeste datasenter i Dallas. Dette vil sikre at Wikipedia og andre Wikimedia-wikier vil fortsette å fungere selv etter en katastrofe. For å passe på at alt fungerer som det skal, kommer Wikimedias teknologiavdeling til å utføre en planlagt test. Denne testen vil teste om det er mulig å bytte fra et datasenter til et annet uten store problemer. Det vil kreve mye arbeid for å forberede testen og fikse eventuelle problemer.

De vil flytte all trafikk over til det nye datasenteret tirsdag 19. april.
torsdag 21. april kommer de til å flytte trafikken tilbake til det primære datasenteret.

Dessverre, grunnet noen begrensninger i MediaWiki, må alle redigering i løpet av disse to byttene måtte stoppe. Vi beklager eventuelle forstyrrelser og problemer dette vil skape, og skal prøve å forhindre dette så mye som mulig i fremtiden.

Du vil kunne lese, men ikke redigere, alle wikiene i et kort tidsrom.

  • Du vil ikke kunne redigere artikler i et tidrom på cirka 15 til 30 minutter tirsdag 19. april og torsdag 21. april, fra klokken 14:00 UTC/GMT (16:00 CEST, 10:00 EDT, 07:00 PDT).
  • Hvis du prøver å redigere eller lagre sider i dette tidsrommet, så vil en feilmelding dukke opp. Vi håper og tror at ingen redigeringer vil gå tapt i disse minuttene, men vi kan ikke garantere noe. Hvis du ser feilmeldingen, vent inntil alt er tilbake som normalt. Deretter skal du kunne redigere som vanlig igjen. Men vi anbefaler at du lagrer en kopi av arbeidet ditt, for sikkerhets skyld.

Andre ting verdt å nevne:

  • Bakgrunnsjobber kan ta lengre tid og noen kan bli avbrutt eller terminert. Røde lenker vil ikke bli oppdatert like fort som normalt. Hvis du lager en artikkel som er lenket til et annet sted, så vil lenken være rød lengre enn vanlig. Noen script som tar lang tid på kjøre vil bli stoppet.
  • Det vil være en kodefrys i uken som inneholder 18. april. Ingen ikke-essensielle kodeutrullinger vil finne sted.

Denne testen var opprinnelig planlangt utført den 22. mars. 19. april og 21. april er de nye datoene. Du kan lese planen på wikitech.wikimedia.org. De vil poste eventuelle endringer i den planen. Det vil komme flere varsler angående dette. Vennligst del denne informasjonen med samfunnet ditt. /Johan (WMF) (diskusjon) 18. apr. 2016 kl. 00:27 (CEST)Svar[svar]

Compact Links coming soon to this wiki[rediger]

Hjelp til med å oversette til ditt språk

Screenshot of Compact Language Links interlanguage list

Hello, I wanted to give a heads up about an upcoming feature for this wiki, which you may already seen in the latest issue of Tech News. Compact Language Links has been available as a beta-feature on all Wikimedia wikis since 2014. With compact language links enabled, users are shown a much shorter list of languages on the interlanguage link section of an article (see image). This will be enabled as a feature in the coming week for all users, which can be turned on or off using a preference setting. We look forward to your feedback and please do let us know if you have any questions. Details about Compact Language Links can be read in the project documentation.

Due to the large scale enablement of this feature, we have had to use MassMessage for this announcement and as a result it is only written in English. We will really appreciate if this message can be translated for other users of this wiki. Thank you.

Screenshot of Compact Language Links interlanguage list

Compact Language Links has been available as a beta-feature on all Wikimedia wikis since 2014. With compact language links enabled, users are shown a much shorter list of languages on the interlanguage link section of an article (see image). Based on several factors, this shorter list of languages is expected to be more relevant for them and valuable for finding similar content in a language known to them. More information about compact language links can be found in the documentation.

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

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

Review of initial updates on Wikimedia movement strategy process[rediger]

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:

Start of the 2017 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees elections[rediger]

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

Wikimedia-logo black.svg

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

On behalf of the Election Committee,
Katie Chan, Chair, Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee

Improved search in deleted pages archive[rediger]

Hjelp til med å oversette til ditt språk

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.

New user group for editing sitewide CSS / JS[rediger]

Editing of sitewide CSS/JS is only possible for interface administrators from now[rediger]

(Hjelp til med å oversette til ditt språk)

Hi all,

as announced previously, permission handling for CSS/JS pages has changed: only members of the interface-admin (Grensesnittadministratorer) 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!

Update on the consultation about office actions[rediger]

Hello all,

Last month, the Wikimedia Foundation's Trust & Safety team announced a future consultation about partial and/or temporary office actions. We want to let you know that the draft version of this consultation has now been posted on Meta.

This is a draft. It is not intended to be the consultation itself, which will be posted on Meta likely in early September. Please do not treat this draft as a consultation. Instead, we ask your assistance in forming the final language for the consultation.

For that end, we would like your input over the next couple of weeks about what questions the consultation should ask about partial and temporary Foundation office action bans and how it should be formatted. Please post it on the draft talk page. Our goal is to provide space for the community to discuss all the aspects of these office actions that need to be discussed, and we want to ensure with your feedback that the consultation is presented in the best way to encourage frank and constructive conversation.

Please visit the consultation draft on Meta-wiki and leave your comments on the draft’s talk page about what the consultation should look like and what questions it should ask.

Thank you for your input! -- The Trust & Safety team 16. aug. 2019 kl. 10:03 (CEST)

Språknavn i interwikilista[rediger]

Hei! Siden 2017 har interwikilenker til no.wikiquote.org fra andre språk vist «Norsk» i sidemenyen i stedet for «Norsk bokmål», som var status for 2017 (det samme har også gjeldt Wikipedia på bokmål). I dag sendte jeg inn en konfigurasjonsendring for å fikse dette for Wikipedia, og tok i samme slengen med Wikiquote og Wiktionary, men det var kanskje litt overilt. Jeblad nevnte at hovedsiden her på Wikiquote bare nevner norsk og ikke bokmål spesifikt («Den norske utgaven […]»), og har jo et poeng der. Så spørsmålet er hva som bør være visningsnavnet på denne Wikiquote-utgaven i språklista på andre utgaver? «Norsk» eller «Norsk bokmål»? Det finnes jo også Wikifrasar på nynorsk, uten at det nødvendigvis betyr at denne utgaven bare er på bokmål. Jon Harald Søby (diskusjon) 16. des. 2019 kl. 15:01 (CET)Svar[svar]

Dette prosjektet er «norsk», se for eksempel oppslaget Sveve over vatna. Det er også et eget prosjekt for nynorsk, så det er ikke gitt hva som vil skje senere. Torstein er administrator på dette prosjektet, men har ikke vært innom på veldig lenge. Aktiviteten på nynorskutgaven er nærmest fraværende, så det er neppe grunnlag for to separate prosjekt. Jeblad-demo (diskusjon) 16. des. 2019 kl. 16:00 (CET)Svar[svar]
Jeg er innom med ujevne mellomrom, ja. Mest for å sjekke vandalisme. Uansett så er det ikke sagt at nynorsk er ulovlig her, så jeg syns "Norsk" er best. Men det er ikke så viktig for meg. Det blir det først hvis brukere kommer fra andre sider med den antagelse at de skal lese bokmål og i raseri begynner å oversette nynorsk-sitater. Satser på at det ikke skjer. :) Aktiviteten på Wikifrasar og her er vel like liten, omtrent, men de har vel flere sider. --Torstein (diskusjon) 20. des. 2019 kl. 22:14 (CET)Svar[svar]

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, 2. jul. 2020 kl. 21:39 (CEST)

Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globally[rediger]

Hjelp til med å oversette til ditt språk

Hello everyone,

I apologize for posting in English. I would like to inform everyone that I created a new global request for comment (GRFC) at Meta Wiki, which may affect your project: m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

In this GRFC, I propose that two-project shortcuts for project names will become a default alias for the project namespace. For instance, on all Wikipedias, WP will be an alias to the Wikipedia: namespace (and similar for other projects). Full list is available in the GRFC.

This is already the case for Wikivoyages, and many individual projects asked for this alias to be implemented. I believe this makes it easier to access the materials in the project namespace, as well as creating shortcuts like WP:NPOV, as well as helps new projects to use this feature, without having to figure out how to request site configuration changes first.

As far as I can see, Wikiquote currently does not have such an alias set. This means that such an alias will be set for you, if the GRFC is accepted by the global community.

I would like to ask all community members to participate in the request for comment at Meta-Wiki, see m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions about this proposal.

Best regards,

Universal Code of Conduct – 2021 consultations[rediger]

Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2[rediger]

Hjelp til med å oversette til ditt språk

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[rediger]

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[rediger]

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.

Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election has come to an end[rediger]

Thank you for participating in the 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election! Voting closed August 31 at 23:59. The official data, including the four most voted candidates, will be announced as soon as the Elections Committee completes their review of the ballots. The official announcement of the new trustees appointed will happen later, once the selected candidates have been confirmed by the Board.

6,946 community members from 216 wiki projects have voted. This makes 10.2% global participation, 1.1% higher than in the last Board elections. In 2017, 5167 people from 202 wiki projects cast their vote. A full analysis is planned to be published in a few days when the confirmed results are announced. In the meantime, you can check the data produced during the election.

Diversity was an important goal with these elections. Messages about the Board election were translated into 61 languages. This outreach worked well.

Upcoming Call for Feedback about the Board of Trustees elections[rediger]

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

The Board of Trustees is preparing a call for feedback about the upcoming Board Elections, from January 7 - February 10, 2022.

While details will be finalized the week before the call, we have confirmed at least two questions that will be asked during this call for feedback:

  • What is the best way to ensure fair representation of emerging communities among the Board?
  • 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,

Remember to Participate in the UCoC Conversations and Ratification Vote![rediger]

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

Hello everyone,

A vote in SecurePoll from 7 to 21 March 2022 is scheduled as part of the ratification process for the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement guidelines. Eligible voters are invited to answer a poll question and share comments. Read voter information and eligibility details. During the poll, voters will be asked if they support the enforcement of the Universal Code of Conduct based on the proposed guidelines.

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire movement. The revised enforcement guidelines were published 24 January 2022 as a proposed way to apply the policy across the movement. 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.
  • The Movement Strategy and Governance (MSG) team is hosting Conversation Hours on 4 March 2022 at 15:00 UTC. Please sign-up to interact with the project team and the drafting committee about the updated enforcement guidelines and the ratification process. See the Conversation Hour summaries for notes from 4 February 2022 and 25 February 2022.

Hello!

The Movement Strategy and Governance team of the Wikimedia Foundation would like to invite you to the next event about "Regional and Thematic Hubs".

Over the last weeks we conducted about 16 interviews with groups working on establishing a Hub in their context (see Hubs Dialogue). These interviews informed a report that will serve as a foundation for discussion on March 12. The report is planned to be published on March 9.

The event will take place on March 12, 13:00 to 16:00 UTC on Zoom. Interpretation will be provided in French, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, and Portuguese. Registration is open, and will close on March 10. Anyone interested in the topic is invited to join us. More information on the event on Meta-wiki.

Revisions to the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement Guidelines[rediger]

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.

Desktop Improvements update[rediger]

Making this the new default

Hello. I wanted to give you an update about the Desktop Improvements project, which the Wikimedia Foundation Web team has been working on for the past few years. Our work is almost finished! 🎉

We would love to see these improvements become the default for readers and editors across all wikis. In the coming weeks, we will begin conversations on more wikis, including yours. 🗓️ We will gladly read your suggestions!

The goals of the project are to make the interface more welcoming and comfortable for readers and useful for advanced users. The project consists of a series of feature improvements which make it easier to read and learn, navigate within the page, search, switch between languages, use article tabs and the user menu, and more. The improvements are already visible by default for readers and editors on more than 30 wikis, including Wikipedias in French, Portuguese, and Persian.

The changes apply to the Vector skin only, although it will always be possible to revert to the previous version on an individual basis. Monobook or Timeless users will not notice any changes.

The newest features
  • Table of contents - our version is easier to reach, gain context of the page, and navigate throughout the page without needing to scroll. It is currently tested across our pilot wikis. It is also available for editors who have opted into the Vector 2022 skin.
  • Page tools - now, there are two types of links in the sidebar. There are actions and tools for individual pages (like Related changes) and links of the wiki-wide nature (like Recent changes). We are going to separate these into two intuitive menus.
How to enable/disable the improvements
  • It is possible to opt-in individually in the appearance tab within the preferences by selecting "Vector (2022)". Also, it is possible to opt-in on all wikis using the global preferences.
  • On wikis where the changes are visible by default for all, logged-in users can always opt-out to the Legacy Vector. There is an easily accessible link in the sidebar of the new Vector.

If you would like to follow the progress of our project, you can subscribe to our newsletter. You can read the pages of the project, check our FAQ, write on the project talk page, and join an online meeting with us.

Propose statements for the 2022 Election Compass[rediger]

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

Vote for Election Compass Statements[rediger]

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

Hello everyone,

The Movement Strategy Forum (MS Forum) is a multilingual collaborative space for all conversations about Movement Strategy implementation.

We are inviting all Movement participants to collaborate on the MS Forum. The goal of the forum is to build community collaboration, using an inclusive multilingual platform.

The Vector 2022 skin as the default in two weeks?[rediger]

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[rediger]

[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?[rediger]

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[rediger]

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) 22. sep. 2022 kl. 06:15 (CEST)Svar[svar]
