The Vector 2022 skin as the default in three weeks?

Επεξεργασία

Read this in your languageΠαρακαλώ βοηθήστε να γίνει μετάφραση στη γλώσσα σας • Please tell other users about these changes

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

 
Καθολικές προτιμήσεις

If you prefer keeping the current skin select "Vector legacy (2010)" on the appearance tab of the global preferences and save the change. We encourage you to give the new skin a try, though.

It would become the default for all logged-out users, and also all logged-in users who currently use Vector legacy as a local (but not global) preference. Logged-in users can at any time switch to any other skin. No changes are expected for these skins.

 
Slides to our Wikimania 2022 presentation. You may also listen to the recording on YouTube (in English).

[Why is a change necessary] When the current default skin was created, it reflected the needs of the readers and editors as these were 14 years ago. Since then, new users have begun using the Internet and Wikimedia projects in different ways. The old Vector does not meet their needs.

[Objective] The objective for the Vector 2022 skin is to make the interface more welcoming and comfortable for readers and useful for advanced users. It introduces a series of changes that aim to improve problems new and existing readers and editors were having with the old skin. It draws inspiration from previous user requests, the Community Wishlist Surveys, and gadgets and scripts. The work helped our code follow the standards and improve all other skins. The PHP code in the other available skins has been reduced by 75%. The project has also focused on making it easier to support gadgets and use APIs.

 

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

  • The limited width and pin-able menus allow to adjust the interface to the screen size, and focus on editing or reading. Logged-in and logged-out users may use a toggle button to keep the full width, though.
  • 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 jump 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 tested wikis.
  • 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.

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

If no large concerns are raised, we plan on deploying on 14 November. If you'd like to ask our team anything, if you have questions, concerns, or additional thoughts, please comment in any language. If this is the first comment to my message, make sure to ping me. We will gladly answer! Also, check out our FAQ. Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (συζήτηση) 01:17, 26 Οκτωβρίου 2023 (UTC)Απάντηση

Do you use Wikidata in Wikimedia sibling projects? Tell us about your experiences

Επεξεργασία

Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English.

Hello, the Wikidata for Wikimedia Projects team at Wikimedia Deutschland would like to hear about your experiences using Wikidata in the sibling projects. If you are interested in sharing your opinion and insights, please consider signing up for an interview with us in this Registration form.
Currently, we are only able to conduct interviews in English.

The front page of the form has more details about what the conversation will be like, including how we would compensate you for your time.

For more information, visit our project issue page where you can also share your experiences in written form, without an interview.
We look forward to speaking with you, Danny Benjafield (WMDE) (talk) 08:53, 5 January 2024 (UTC)

Reusing references: Can we look over your shoulder?

Επεξεργασία

Apologies for writing in English.

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

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

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

Invitation to join January Wikisource Community Meeting

Hello fellow Wikisource enthusiasts!

We are the hosting this month’s Wikisource Community meeting on 27 January 2024, 3 PM UTC (check your local time).

As we gear up for our upcoming Wikisource Community meeting, we are excited to share some additional information with you.

The meetings will now be held on the last Saturday of each month. We understand the importance of accommodating different time zones, so to better cater to our global community, we've decided to alternate meeting times. The meeting will take place at 3 pm UTC this month, and next month it will be scheduled for 7 am UTC on the last Saturday. This rotation will continue, allowing for a balanced representation of different time zones.

As always, the meeting agenda will be divided into two halves. The first half of the meeting will focus on non-technical updates, including discussions about events, conferences, proofread-a-thons, and collaborations. The second half will delve into technical updates and conversations, addressing major challenges faced by Wikisource communities, similar to our previous Community meetings.

If you are interested in joining the meeting, kindly leave a message on klawal-ctr@wikimedia.org and we will add you to the calendar invite.

Meanwhile, feel free to check out the page on Meta-wiki and suggest any other topics for the agenda.

Ερωτήσεις προς την κοινότητα

Επεξεργασία

Καλησπέρα στην κοινότητα. Θα ήθελα να συζητήσω 2 πραγματάκια μαζί σας.

  1. Ξεκίνησα χθες τη Μεταγραφή:Λεξικόν Γεωγραφικόν.pdf, στην οποία ουσιαστικά υπάρχουν μικρά λημματάκια για τοπωνύμια. Πως πιστεύετε πως είναι καλύτερο να γίνει η ενσωμάτωση στον κύριο χώρο; Όλα μαζί ανά γράμμα ή κάθε λήμμα σε ξεχωριστή υποσελίδα; Πιστεύω πως το κάθε λήμμα χωριστά είναι καλύτερη επιλογή όσον αφορά την πλοήγηση.
  2. Σκέφτομαι επίσης κάποια στιγμή στο μέλλον να περαστεί στη Βικιθήκη το Λεξικόν εγκυκλοπαιδικόν. Αν θυμάμαι καλά πρέπει να έχει λήξει η προστασία των πνευματικών δικαιωμάτων για κάθε συνεισφέροντα στην εγκυκλοπαίδεια. Οι περισσότεροι είναι εντάξει, υπάρχουν μερικοί όμως που δεν υπάρχουν πολλά διαθέσιμα στοιχεία. Ίσως με μια οργανωμένη επιχείρηση να βρεθούν τα απαραίτητα στοιχεία. Τι πιστεύετε;

Ευχαριστώ!-- Τεχνίτης (ο Βικιθηκάριος) 16:03, 23 Ιανουαρίου 2024 (UTC)Απάντηση

Πιστεύω υποσελίδα για κάθε λήμμα είναι καλύτερο. —Ah3kal (συζήτηση) 08:53, 24 Ιανουαρίου 2024 (UTC)Απάντηση
Συμφωνώ με την πρόταση για ξεχωριστή σελίδα, αυτό φαίνεται να γίνεται και σε άλλες βικιθήκες. Για το Λεξικόν εγκυκλοπαιδικόν δεν είμαι σίγουρος. Θα μπορούσαμε να περάσουμε τα λήμματα που είμαστε σίγουροι ότι έχουν γραφτεί από συγγραφείς, οι οποίοι έχουν πεθάνει πριν το 1953, και σε κάθε λήμμα να αναφέρεται ποιος είναι ο συγγραφέας. Με μια γρήγορη ματιά που έριξα όμως, φαίνεται ότι σε πολλά δεν είναι ξεκάθαρο ποιος το έχει γράψει. Ntetos (συζήτηση) 09:30, 24 Ιανουαρίου 2024 (UTC)Απάντηση

User:Ah3kal, User:Ntetos Πολύ ωραία για το πρώτο ζήτημα. Σκέφτομαι ότι ίσως είναι καλύτερα να είναι κάπως έτσι Λεξικόν Γεωγραφικόν/Α/όνομα και όχι κατευθείαν, ώστε στο Λεξικόν Γεωγραφικόν/Α να υπάρχει ένας κατάλογος με τα λήμματα του γράμματος. Δηλαδή να είναι σε δύο επίπεδα. Τι λέτε;--Τεχνίτης (ο Βικιθηκάριος) 15:25, 24 Ιανουαρίου 2024 (UTC)Απάντηση

Μου φαίνεται καλή ιδέα, αφού ούτως η άλλως το κάθε γράμμα είναι από μόνο του μία ενότητα, και στην αρχή μπορείς να έχεις Λεξικόν Γεωγραφικόν/Α ως ευρετήριο. —Ah3kal (συζήτηση) 17:37, 24 Ιανουαρίου 2024 (UTC)Απάντηση
  1. Η προσωπική μου γνώμη είναι δεν είναι πρακτικό ούτε αναγνώσιμο να τεμαχιστεί ένα βιβλίο σε μερικές χιλιάδες υποσελίδες των δεκαπέντε με είκοσι λέξεων, όπως με μια πρώτη ματιά φαίνεται να είναι ή μέση έκταση των λημμάτων του και ότι θα ήταν προτιμότερο να χωριστεί στα γράμματα του αλφαβήτου.
  2. Κάθε δυνατή προσθήκη είναι ασφαλώς ευπρόσδεκτη, όμως, το ζήτημα στην ελληνόγλωσση Βικιθήκη, της οποίας η «κοινότητα» μπορεί άνετα να συνεδριάσει σε ταξί, δεν είναι η έλλειψη βικιεπιχειρήσεων αλλά χεριών. Η προσθήκη 7.000 σελίδων πυκνοτυπωμένου πολυτονικού κειμένου είναι ένα φιλόδοξο εγχείρημα, αν δεν εμφανιστούν όμως εθελοντές φοβάμαι ότι θα έχει την τύχη παρόμοιων ογκωδών (παράδειγμα).
    Αντιγόνη (συζήτηση) 00:55, 25 Ιανουαρίου 2024 (UTC)Απάντηση
1. Από τη μια θα είναι όντως πολύ μικρά τα περισσότερα λήμματα αλλά φοβάμαι ότι η εναλλακτική με μια σελίδα άνα γράμμα δεν είναι ούτε αυτή τόσο πρακτική γιατί η σελίδα θα είναι υπερβολικά μεγάλη. Δεν είμαι 100% σίγουρος ποια είναι η βέλτιστη επιλογή αλλά βλέπω ότι στην Αγγλική Βικιθήκη, σχεδόν όλες οι εγκυκλοπαίδειες χωρίζουν κάθε λήμμα σε ξεχωριστή σελίδα ακόμα και αυτές που έχουν πολύ μικρά άρθρα, π.χ. The New Student's Reference Work, en:Complete Encyclopaedia of Music και νομίζω έτσι κάνουν και σε άλλες γλώσσες. Ίσως είναι χρήσιμο στην περίπτωση που αποφασίσουμε να γίνει λήμμα ανά σελίδα να δημιουργηθεί ειδικό πρότυπο κεφαλίδας όπως το Πρότυπο:ΛΕΑ-Λήμμα που δίνει και σύνδεσμο προς τη Βικιπαίδεια και μπορεί να βοηθάει τον αναγνώστη να αντιστοιχήσει την παλιά ονομασία με τη σημερινή.
2. Αυτό είναι αλήθεια και υπάρχουν ήδη διάφορα σε αρχικό στάδιο που θα μπορούσαν να προχωρήσουν πριν ξεκινήσει κάποια καινούργια μεγάλη μεταγραφή. --Ntetos (συζήτηση) 14:39, 25 Ιανουαρίου 2024 (UTC)Απάντηση
Έφτιαξα μερικά δοκιμαστικά για να δούμε πως είναι. Σίγουρα και γω βλέποντας την αγγλική Βικιθήκη, υποστηρίζω κάθε λήμμα χωριστά. Υπάρχουν πάντως και μερικά λίγο πιο μεγάλα λήμματα, π.χ. Λεξικόν Γεωγραφικόν/Α/Αάσχεν. Το πρότυπο για την κεφαλίδα είναι μια καλή ιδέα!-- Τεχνίτης (ο Βικιθηκάριος) 16:02, 25 Ιανουαρίου 2024 (UTC)Απάντηση
@Texniths Ίσως πρέπει να παύσει λίγο η δημιουργία σελίδων ανά λήμμα (όχι η μεταγραφή) μέχρι να δούμε το εξής ζήτημα: Σε αρκετά συνεχόμενα λήμματα δεν επαναλαμβάνει μία πληροφορία οπότε αποκομμένα γίνονται ακατανόητα. Δες π.χ. το σημερινό Λεξικόν Γεωγραφικόν/Α/Αβρούζο Ουλτελιόρε Β΄ ή την μεταγραφή της σελίδας που επίτηδες δεν έκανα λήμματα για να το συζητήσουμε Σελίδα:Λεξικόν Γεωγραφικόν.pdf/593, όπου μετά την Ωβάνη, δεν ξαναγράφει το Γαλλίας, αλλά ενταύθα. Ανά γράμμα που είναι η επόμενη βαθμίδα μου φαίνεται υπερβολικά μεγάλη συγκέντρωση, γιατί δεν είναι κείμενο που κανείς διαβάζει από την αρχή ως το τέλος. Δεν έχω σκεφτεί κάτι, προς το παρόν καταθέτω τον προβληματισμό και θα επανέλθω. —Ah3kal (συζήτηση) 20:16, 24 Φεβρουαρίου 2024 (UTC)Απάντηση
Υ.Γ. Στο Ὤδη καὶ Ὀδιέρνη είναι χειρότερο γιατί γράφει απλά επίσης που το κάνει ακόμα πιο ακατανόητο και πρέπει κανείς να ανατρέξει 4 λήμματα πριν για να καταλάβει ότι το επίσης=εἰς Γαλλίαν.—Ah3kal (συζήτηση) 20:20, 24 Φεβρουαρίου 2024 (UTC)Απάντηση
@Ah3kal Ίσως αυτά που είναι κοντά και έχουν τέτοια μορφή μπορούν να μπουν σε μια σελίδα όπου θα περιέχει τα σχετικά λήμματα. Π.χ. το Αβρούζο Ουλτελιόρε Α', το Β' και το Κιτεριόρε σε μια σελίδα.-- Τεχνίτης (ο Βικιθηκάριος) 22:05, 24 Φεβρουαρίου 2024 (UTC)Απάντηση
@Texniths: Κάτι τέτοιο σκεφτόμουν και εγώ. Στο παράδειγμα των Ὠβάνη, Ὠβενάς, Ὠβέργνη, Ὠβυσσὼν και Ὤδη σκέφτομαι να υπάρχει το [Λεξικόν Γεωγραφικόν/Α/ΧΧΧΧΧΧ] για το καθένα ως ανακατεύθυνση και κύριο λήμμα στόχος να είναι ένα ενοποιημένο [Λεξικόν Γεωγραφικόν/Α/Ωβάνη έως Ώδη]. Κάτι τέτοιο να γίνεται σε όσα συνεχόμενα έχουν εξάρτηση. Ήθελα να επανέλθω πιο μετά για να σκεφτώ λίγο και μια δεύτερη λύση, η οποία όμως είναι πιο επεμβατική και δεν μου αρέσει τόσο, δηλαδή με ένα πρότυπο παρόμοιο με το {sic} να φαίνεται π.χ. το ἐνταῦθα στη σελίδα μεταγραφής αλλά στην ενσωμάτωση να φαίνεται εἰς Γαλλίαν και με αιώρηση να δείνει κάτι σαν [Σημ. Βικιθήκης: στο πρωτότυπο ἐνταῦθα]. Αλλά όπως είπα, επειδή είναι πιο επεμβατικό δεν μου αρέσει τόσο. Μεταξύ του αυθαίρετου σπασίματος και της επέμβασης, προτιμώ μάλλον το αυθαίρετο σπάσιμο. —Ah3kal (συζήτηση) 22:19, 24 Φεβρουαρίου 2024 (UTC)Απάντηση
@Ah3kal Έτσι ακριβώς, με ανακατευθύνσεις στο "κεντρικό" λήμμα. Το να γίνει σελίδα για κάθε γράμμα δυστυχώς είναι δύσκολο. Όπως και το να γίνει ανά 10 ή 15 σελίδες είναι αυθαίρετο. Βέβαια και η πρόταση για το {sic} δεν είναι άσχημη. Το ακούω και αυτό.-- Τεχνίτης (ο Βικιθηκάριος) 22:25, 24 Φεβρουαρίου 2024 (UTC)Απάντηση
Το {sic} δεν μου αρέσει τόσο γιατί ανοίγει την πόρτα να επεμβαίνουμε περισσότερο από όσο είναι απολύτως απαραίτητο στα πρωτότυπα κείμενα. —Ah3kal (συζήτηση) 22:29, 24 Φεβρουαρίου 2024 (UTC)Απάντηση

Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees 2024 Selection

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

Dear all,

This year, the term of 4 (four) Community- and Affiliate-selected Trustees on the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees will come to an end [1]. The Board invites the whole movement to participate in this year’s selection process and vote to fill those seats.

The Elections Committee will oversee this process with support from Foundation staff [2]. The Board Governance Committee created a Board Selection Working Group from Trustees who cannot be candidates in the 2024 community- and affiliate-selected trustee selection process composed of Dariusz Jemielniak, Nataliia Tymkiv, Esra'a Al Shafei, Kathy Collins, and Shani Evenstein Sigalov [3]. The group is tasked with providing Board oversight for the 2024 trustee selection process, and for keeping the Board informed. More details on the roles of the Elections Committee, Board, and staff are here [4].

Here are the key planned dates:

  • May 2024: Call for candidates and call for questions
  • June 2024: Affiliates vote to shortlist 12 candidates (no shortlisting if 15 or less candidates apply) [5]
  • June-August 2024: Campaign period
  • End of August / beginning of September 2024: Two-week community voting period
  • October–November 2024: Background check of selected candidates
  • Board's Meeting in December 2024: New trustees seated

Learn more about the 2024 selection process - including the detailed timeline, the candidacy process, the campaign rules, and the voter eligibility criteria - on this Meta-wiki page, and make your plan.

Election Volunteers

Another way to be involved with the 2024 selection process is to be an Election Volunteer. Election Volunteers are a bridge between the Elections Committee and their respective community. They help ensure their community is represented and mobilize them to vote. Learn more about the program and how to join on this Meta-wiki page.

Best regards,

Dariusz Jemielniak (Governance Committee Chair, Board Selection Working Group)

[5] Even though the ideal number is 12 candidates for 4 open seats, the shortlisting process will be triggered if there are more than 15 candidates because the 1-3 candidates that are removed might feel ostracized and it would be a lot of work for affiliates to carry out the shortlisting process to only eliminate 1-3 candidates from the candidate list.

Switching to the Vector 2022 skin

Επεξεργασία

Read this in your languageΠαρακαλώ βοηθήστε να γίνει μετάφραση στη γλώσσα σας • Please tell other users about these changes

Hi everyone. We are the Wikimedia Foundation Web team. As you may have read in our previous message, over the past year, we have been getting closer to switching every wiki to the Vector 2022 skin as the new default. In our previous conversations with Wikisource communities, we had identified an issue with the Index namespace that prevented switching the skin on. This issue is now resolved.

We are now ready to continue and will be deploying on Wikisource wikis on March 25th.

To learn more about the new skin and what improvements it introduces, please see our documentation. If you have any issues with the skin after the change, if you spot any gadgets not working, or notice any bugs – please comment below! We are also open to joining events like the Wikisource Community meetings to talk to you directly. Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (συζήτηση) 20:50, 18 Μαρτίου 2024 (UTC)Απάντηση

Hello all,

The next language community meeting is scheduled in a few weeks - May 31st at 16:00 UTC. If you're interested, you can sign up on this wiki page.

This is a participant-driven meeting, where we share language-specific updates related to various projects, collectively discuss technical issues related to language wikis, and work together to find possible solutions. For example, in the last meeting, the topics included the machine translation service (MinT) and the languages and models it currently supports, localization efforts from the Kiwix team, and technical challenges with numerical sorting in files used on Bengali Wikisource.

Do you have any ideas for topics to share technical updates related to your project? Any problems that you would like to bring for discussion during the meeting? Do you need interpretation support from English to another language? Please reach out to me at ssethi(__AT__)wikimedia.org and add agenda items to the document here.

We look forward to your participation!

As communicated by the Charter Electoral Commission, we reached the quorum for both Affiliate and individual votes by the time the vote closed on July 9, 23:59 UTC. We thank all 2,451 individuals and 129 Affiliate representatives who voted in the ratification process. Your votes and comments are invaluable for the future steps in Movement Strategy.

The final results of the Wikimedia Movement Charter ratification voting held between 25 June and 9 July 2024 are as follows:

Because the neutral votes don’t count towards the total number of votes cast, 73.30% voted to approve the Charter (1710/2333), while 26.70% voted to reject the Charter (623/2333).

Affiliates vote:

Out of 129 Affiliates designated voters who voted as of July 9 23:59 (UTC), 129 votes are confirmed as valid votes. Among these, 93 voted “yes”; 18 voted “no”; and 18 selected “–” (neutral). Because the neutral votes don’t count towards the total number of votes cast, 83.78% voted to approve the Charter (93/111), while 16.22% voted to reject the Charter (18/111).

Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation:

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees voted not to ratify the proposed Charter during their special Board meeting on July 8, 2024. The Chair of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees, Nataliia Tymkiv, shared the result of the vote, the resolution, meeting minutes and proposed next steps.  

With this, the Wikimedia Movement Charter in its current revision is not ratified.

We thank you for your participation in this important moment in our movement’s governance.
