--Smeira 17:52, 2008 yanul 5id (UTC)

What happens if somebody writes an article about, for example, his grandmother? Or about his company, which was founded in 2005 and has 25 employees? In other words, is there some kind of notability guidelines? Which template should be used for such cases instead of the (speedy?) {{Delete}}? --145.254.190.214 17:53, 2008 yanul 15id (UTC)
We'll in principle follow the usual criteria for notability: if the person's grandmother doesn't happen to be sufficiently famous, or if no one other than the author him/herself can verify the data, then the article will be considered for deletion. But thus far no one has tried to do that; so, in a sense, it is a problem we don't anticipate we'll have any time soon. Hence the absence of a dedicated template. If such a case occurs -- if there's a Volapük speaker who wants to write an article about his/her own non-famous grandmother -- then we'll set policies for dealing with that. For the time being, {{Delete}} will do -- until there really is a of the kind you anticipate, and then new approaches (e.g. new deletion templates) will be developed. --Smeira 19:45, 2008 febul 27id (UTC)

Pad fädik, Klads, dugönRedakön

Glidis! (Pidob vemo. No-nolob "navigation". I don't know the word for "navigation".) It may worth considering [1] disabling (or relegating) the "pad fadik" and replacing it with an index of articles, as in, e.g. [2]; and also consider making the Klads a more prominent means of navigation. This will lead readers to read the good articles; and the relative weight of the retäds would be reduced. - Hillgentleman 19:37, 2 yanul 2008 (UTC)

Glidis! (Navigation = nafam if you use the same maritime metaphor; at least one Volapükist I know doesn't like that and is looking for a less metaphorical description.) I don't see clearly the relation between the description of the use of bots on it.wp and the "pad fädik" link -- isn't it a link on all other Wikipedias? And it can be used for statistical purposes. Now, the idea of making Klads more visible as a navigation tool I find really interesting. How should we do that? (en.wp has only a few links to generic categories on the top of its main page; is this a good way to do that?) --Smeira 01:20, 3 yanul 2008 (UTC)
Glidis! You must have seen: someone comes, "pad fadik" a dozen times, and makes her conclusions. Well, we sometimes browse a dictionary this way, but this is not the best for a project under construction. (And by the way, hasn't Britannica got some one-liner entries? I don't remember.) It is my impression that you would yourself peace and quietous make if you behave professionally. Vukiped is a reference work. Make it useful. A good index is the key. - Hillgentleman 02:08, 3 yanul 2008 (UTC)
We can at least put links to the major categories, major portals, and an index in the most promenant position on the Cifapad. Now, whether that is enough is subjective. The question is what do you want people to see on the Cifapad. Do we want featured articles? perhaps. Do we want links to events happening on that date? And what do we want for the front page? At present, it would be 1. to entice new editors; and 2. to aid site navigation, ie guide the reader quickly to the information he seeks. The question is how to balance them. Hillgentleman 02:17, 3 yanul 2008 (UTC)
Some people also put Klad:Klads on the sidebar. (Langcom did that.) Hillgentleman 02:20, 3 yanul 2008 (UTC)
I basically agree with you. Do you have a suggestion as to a layout? En.wp has a few major categories on the main page and a link to a more detailed categorization. Is this a good idea? (Perhaps not; not very evident.) By the way, how do you add something to the sidebar? --Smeira 16:19, 3 yanul 2008 (UTC)
I have placed a link to Klad:Klads under 'Yegeds mä jäfüds' (= articles by discipline / area of interest / specialization) in the Cifapad. Do you think, Hillgentleman, that this is sufficiently visible? (One problem for newcomers: if they don't speak Volapük, they won't know what the options on the main page link to. Won't they in this case still prefer to go to 'Pads fädik'?) --Smeira 16:24, 3 yanul 2008 (UTC)
I believe a better design of the main page can help even those who do not speak Volapük (those Nuvola icons are really great). Maybe we should develop some proposals for a new main page with a bit more of imagery and more "vivid" colors. I'll look into it when I have a bit of time (weekend?).

This page is in a namespace better know as "mediaWiki:". That is where the sysops can fix their local interface messages (ie without having to hardcode them into the phps. Hillgentleman 22:16, 3 yanul 2008 (UTC)
Just go and edit it. C.f. meta:mediawiki:sidebar. Hillgentleman 22:17, 3 yanul 2008 (UTC)
But if we try to get MediaWiki:Sidebar here, we get a page that has already been deleted, and which has nothing to do with the sidebar that I see. How can we edit it? --Smeira 14:28, 2008 yanul 5id (UTC)
Belated reply on mediawiki:sidebar: For example, if you want to test it, replace the line "** randompage-url|randompage" by "** Klad:Klads|Klads". Hillgentleman 01:08, 2008 febul 29id (UTC)
My opinion: This is an encyclopaedia above all. It would be good to have direct access the entrances to the principal classifications

([+]Lekans [+] Nolavs [+] Rels [+] Sogäd [+] Spot [+] Telplänovapads) If the Klad is too big, create a portal for it and provide link to it instead. One more klickon away is one more chance for confusion. -Hillgentleman 22:23, 3 yanul 2008 (UTC)

I agree that this should be an encyclopedia above all. I've added a link to Klad:Klads at the Main Page, and also a link to the Klad:Yegeds gudik (= good articles). Does this help, in your opinion? --Smeira 14:22, 2008 yanul 5id (UTC)

How can we improve the usability for your languageRedakön

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/Languageissues. 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.

Many of the most active editors on this wiki are bots. As a learner of Volapük I'd like to volunteer so that more oversight can be given. I run volapuk.com and am working on a number of Volapük publications. Evertype 17:36, 2012 yanul 22id (UTC)

Happy to support this, Gmeijssen 17:37, 2012 yanul 22id (UTC)
You have my support since you are a very active member of the Volapük community. Unfortunately, I'm not too active here and Geban:Smeira is missing in action. It would be great if someone could give this project a kick up. Let's just wait a few days for other (if any) voices to be heard. Malafaya 17:12, 2012 yanul 23id (UTC)

Language support group for VolapukRedakön

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.

The word "Vükiped"Redakön

Hello. It seems to me, having looked at the morphology of Volapük, that the name of this wikipedia is badly formed. The first two letters, , are confusable with a preposition meaning "between" (corresponding to the prefix "inter-"), the last two letters, ed, are confusable with a common suffix, and the word as a whole is further blighted by the fact that the middle three letters, kip, are confusable with a root meaning "keep/retain". The word is thus highly ambiguous, and I wonder if it shouldn't be replaced. I understand there is a procedure for word coining whereby the Academy (the Kadäm) is consulted and then makes a decision. And I wonder who the person was who invented the word "Vükiped", and whether he/she had any contact with the Academy.

Hi. I don't have a clue. The word had already been adopted when I first came here. Let me just tell you that just because words seem to be composed of known prefixes/suffixes doesn't mean they are not allowed. In Volapük there are many words that start that way, with particles that match prefixes, and yet morphologically they are not prefixes: for example, "jied" (a bad concept for an example, I know :)) is not composed of prefix "ji-" and suffix "-ed". Regards, Malafaya (talk) 14:30, 2013 yanul 29id (UTC)

Quality assurance: logging inRedakön

  Hi, When I log in to vowiki, half the prompts are in Volapük, but half are in Linglänapük:

  • Use secure connection
  • Reset your password
  • Keep me logged in
  • Help with logging in

I confirmed this by clicking "Linglänapük" and checking the prompts there.
Also, if I log in using Sperantapük, I have an English prompt:

  • Reset your password

Hi. This is because not all MediaWiki messages are translated. This is mainly because MediaWiki is not static and is continuously evolving. Thus, it's not easy to keep pace :). Malafaya (talk) 13:26, 2013 yulul 12id (UTC)
No problem.
It's just so you are aware of the issue.

A small translation requestRedakön

        Hi, I have translated this book list -- en:Le Monde's 100 Books of the Century -- into 30 or 40 natural languages.
I thought I would try 2 artificial languages, Volapük and Esperanto. (The only artificial language I know is Nadsat, from A Clockwork Orange.)
What would be a good title for the page when I finish compiling the list?
Le Monde is the newspaper in Paris.
Thanks very much, Varlaam (talk) 19:25, 2013 yulul 5id (UTC)

          Any suggestions for a page title? Thanks, Varlaam (talk) 15:21, 2013 yulul 9id (UTC)

That would be Buks 100 Tumyela ela Le Monde. Regards, Malafaya (talk) 13:28, 2013 yulul 12id (UTC)
That's fantastic. Thank you, Varlaam (talk) 00:01, 2013 yulul 13id (UTC)
Hello again.
With help from Wiktionary, I have some column headings:
Nüm Calanem [?] Lautan Yel
1 The Stranger Albert Camus 1942
2 Pö suk tima peperöl Marcel Proust 19131927
But I don't trust this word "Calanem". It matches the German "Titel", but Titel has more than one meaning. And "calanem" is never actually used in vowiki.
What should "book title" be?
Thanks. Varlaam (talk) 16:37, 2013 yulul 16id (UTC)
I'm not sure that "Calanem" is correct, but it does seem to mean title.[4] It might be a different sense of the word. Can someone confirm that "calanem" is correct? PiRSquared17 (talk) 21:41, 2013 yulul 16id (UTC)
No, calanem is definitely not correct here. Book title is tiäd. Academic title is calanem. Shruggy (talk) 15:25, 2013 gustul 21id (UTC)

Pywikipedia is migrating to gitRedakön

Hello, Sorry for English but It's very important for bot operators so I hope someone translates this. Pywikipedia is migrating to Git so after July 26, SVN checkouts won't be updated If you're using Pywikipedia you have to switch to git, otherwise you will use out-dated framework and your bot might not work properly. There is a manual for doing that and a blog post explaining about this change in non-technical language. If you have question feel free to ask in mw:Manual talk:Pywikipediabot/Gerrit, mailing list, or in the IRC channel. Best Amir (via Global message delivery). 13:55, 2013 yulul 23id (UTC)

IMPORTANT: Admin activity reviewRedakön

Hello. A new policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc) was recently adopted by global community consensus (your community received a notice about the discussion). According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing administrators' activity on smaller wikis. To the best of our knowledge, your wiki does not have a formal process for removing "advanced rights" from inactive accounts. This means that the stewards will take care of this according to the new admin activity review here.


We have determined that the following users meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no log actions for more than 2 years):

  1. Flauto Dolce (bureaucrat, administrator)
  2. ILVI (administrator)
  3. Manie (bureaucrat, administrator)

These users will receive a notification soon, asking them to start a community discussion if they want to retain some or all of their rights. If the users do not respond, then their advanced rights will be removed by the stewards.

However, if you as a community would like to create your own activity review process superseding the global one, want to make another decision about these inactive rights holders, or already have a policy that we missed, then please notify the stewards on Meta-Wiki so that we know not to proceed with the rights review on your wiki.

No one needs free knowledge in EsperantoRedakön

There is a current discussion on German Wikipedia on a decision of Asaf Bartov, Head of WMF Grants and Global South Partnerships, Wikimedia Foundation, who rejected a request for funding a proposal from wikipedians from eowiki one year ago with the explanation the existence, cultivation, and growth of the Esperanto Wikipedia does not advance our educational mission. No one needs free knowledge in Esperanto. On meta there has also started a discussion about that decision. --Holder (talk) 10:57, 2014 mayul 5id (UTC)

Media ViewerRedakön


Greetings, my apologies for writing in English.

I wanted to let you know that Media Viewer will be released to this wiki in the coming weeks. Media Viewer allows readers of Wikimedia projects to have an enhanced view of files without having to visit the file page, but with more detail than a thumbnail. You can try Media Viewer out now by turning it on in your Beta Features. If you do not enjoy Media Viewer or if it interferes with your work after it is turned on you will be able to disable Media Viewer as well in your preferences. I invite you to share what you think about Media Viewer and how it can be made better in the future.

Thank you for your time. - Keegan (WMF) 21:29, 2014 mayul 23id (UTC)

Media Viewer is now live on this wikiRedakön


 
Media Viewer lets you see images in larger size

Greetings— and sorry for writing in English, please translate if it will help your community,

The Wikimedia Foundation's Multimedia team is happy to announce that Media Viewer was just released on this site today.

Media Viewer displays images in larger size when you click on their thumbnails, to provide a better viewing experience. Users can now view images faster and more clearly, without having to jump to separate pages — and its user interface is more intuitive, offering easy access to full-resolution images and information, with links to the file repository for editing. The tool has been tested extensively across all Wikimedia wikis over the past six months as a Beta Feature and has been released to the largest Wikipedias, all language Wikisources, and the English Wikivoyage already.

If you do not like this feature, you can easily turn it off by clicking on "Disable Media Viewer" at the bottom of the screen, pulling up the information panel (or in your your preferences) whether you have an account or not. Learn more in this Media Viewer Help page.

Please let us know if you have any questions or comments about Media Viewer. You are invited to share your feedback in this discussion on MediaWiki.org in any language, to help improve this feature. You are also welcome to take this quick survey in English, en français, o español.

We hope you enjoy Media Viewer. Many thanks to all the community members who helped make it possible. - Fabrice Florin (WMF) (talk) 21:54, 2014 yunul 19id (UTC)

VisualEditor global newsletter—June 2014Redakön

This is a one-time mailing to projects that may need this information. Future newsletters will be available as opt-in only. To receive future newsletters (about one per month), please add your page to the subscribers' list at m:VisualEditor/Newsletter. You're welcome to translate to your language.


Did you know?

The character formatting menu, or "Style text" menu lets you set bold, italic, and other text styles. "Clear formatting" removes all text styles and removes links to other pages.

Do you think that clear formatting should remove links? Are there changes you would like to see for this menu? Share your opinion at MediaWiki.org.

The user guide has information about how to use VisualEditor.

The VisualEditor team is mostly working to fix bugs, improve performance, reduce technical debt, and other infrastructure needs. You can find on Mediawiki.org weekly updates detailing recent work.

  • They have moved the "Keyboard shortcuts" link out of the "Page options" menu, into the "Help" menu. Within dialog boxes, buttons are now more accessible (via the Tab key) from the keyboard.
  • You can now see the target of the link when you click on it, without having to open the inspector.
  • The team also expanded TemplateData: You can now add a parameter type  "date" for dates and times in the ISO 8601 format, and  "boolean" for values which are true or false. Also, templates that redirect to other templates (like {{citeweb}}{{cite web}}) now get the TemplateData of their target (bug 50964). You can test TemplateData by editing mw:Template:Sandbox/doc.
  • Category: and File: pages now display their contents correctly after saving an edit (bug 65349, bug 64239)
  • They have also improved reference editing: You should no longer be able to add empty citations with VisualEditor (bug 64715), as with references. When you edit a reference, you can now empty it and click the "use an existing reference" button to replace it with another reference instead. 
  • It is now possible to edit inline images with VisualEditor. Remember that inline images cannot display captions, so existing captions get removed. Many other bugs related to images were also fixed.
  • You can now add and edit {{DISPLAYTITLE}} and __DISAMBIG__ in the "Page options" menu, rounding out the full set of page options currently planned.
  • The tool to insert special characters is now wider and simpler.

Looking aheadRedakön

The VisualEditor team has posted a draft of their goals for the next fiscal year. You can read them and suggest changes on MediaWiki.org.

The team posts details about planned work on VisualEditor's roadmap. You will soon be able to drag-and-drop text as well as images. If you drag an image to a new place, it won't let you place it in the middle of a paragraph. All dialog boxes and windows will be simplified based on user testing and feedback. The VisualEditor team plans to add autofill features for citations. Your ideas about making referencing quick and easy are still wanted. Support for upright image sizes is being developed. The designers are also working on support for viewing and editing hidden HTML comments and adding rows and columns to tables.

Supporting your wikiRedakön

Please read VisualEditor/Citation tool for information on configuring the new citation template menu, labeled "⧼visualeditor-toolbar-cite-label⧽". This menu will not appear unless it has been configured on your wiki.

If you speak a language other than English, we need your help with translating the user guide. The guide is out of date or incomplete for many languages, and what's on your wiki may not be the most recent translation. Please contact us if you need help getting started with translation work on MediaWiki.org.

VisualEditor can be made available to most non-Wikipedia projects. If your community would like to test VisualEditor, please contact product manager James Forrester or file an enhancement request in Bugzilla.

Please share your questions, suggestions, or problems by posting a note at mw:VisualEditor/Feedback or by joining the office hours on Saturday, 19 July 2014 at 21:00 UTC (daytime for the Americas and Pacific Islands) or on Thursday, 14 August 2014 at 9:00 UTC (daytime for Europe, Middle East, Asia).

If you'd like to get this newsletter on your own page (about once a month), please subscribe at Meta (or at w:en:Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Newsletter for English Wikipedia only). Thank you! --Elitre (WMF), 22:33, 2014 yunul 25id (UTC)

PortobuffoléRedakön

De geban ela 151.20.4.40 : I need to speak to an admin, may I ask you? It's about the problem of the article "Portobuffolé": it was disussed both in en.wikipedia and in it.wikipedia about the correct spelling, and it was established that it must have the acute accent. The following are some of the sources brought in the discussions, proving the correct spelling: [5] [6] [7] [8]. They're the most authoritative dictionaries and encyclopedias about Italian language and they all agree about the spelling. Also almost all other Wikis have already changed the uncorrect spellings, but there's a Dutch admin/rollbacker who's going against consensus and moving back a lot of pages on several Wikis to the uncorrect spelling, in this way actually vandalising the Wiki-pedia. Can you please move once for all the page "Portobuffolè" to "Portobuffolé", or delete the page "Portobuffolè" with the uncorrect spelling, please? If an admin of vo.wikipedia does it, this could prevent the Dutch rollbacker from keeping this senseless edit-war. Thank you in advance if you will! Robert (bespik) 14:14, 2016 yanul 22id (UTC)

JavaScriptRedakön

Hi. I can see that this project has old JavaScript that needs to be updated. I would happily make the required updates myself, but I would have to – at least temporarily – become an admin here to do that (because the relevant pages are in the MediaWiki namespace). I have already made these updates on a number of other projects, so it would be very easy for me to do this. If no one does anything, some JavaScript-related tools will break later this year. If you want me to make these updates, you can grant me admin rights and I will make the updates as soon as I can. Nirmos (bespik) 21:45, 2016 yunul 8id (UTC)

Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globallyRedakön

Please help translate to your language

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, Vükiped 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 consultationsRedakön

Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2Redakön

Please help translate to your language

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 applicationsRedakön

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 / translatorsRedakön

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 endRedakön

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. There were 70 communities with eligible voters voting in this election for the first time. With your help, next year’s Board of Trustees election will be even better.
