Reminder: office hour per VisualEditor[càmbia | edit source]

Ciao, vi segnalo le office hour previste per VE questo mese (una mercoledì 15, l'altra il 22). Eventuali domande possono essere lasciate qui sotto o nella mia talk. Grazie e a presto, --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 21:38, 15 Ghe 2014 (CET)

Request for comment on Commons: Should Wikimedia support MP4 video?[càmbia | edit source]

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

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

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

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

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

Please join this RfC -- and share your advice.

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

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

We look forward to a constructive discussion with you, so we can make a more informed decision together on this important topic. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 07:46, 16 Ghe 2014 (CET)

Richiesta di commenti: strumento per l'aggiunta di caratteri speciali in VisualEditor[càmbia | edit source]

Ciao, è stato appena aggiunto uno strumento per l'aggiunta di caratteri speciali quando si edita con VisualEditor. Se avete tempo, per favore, provatelo e fate sapere agli sviluppatori cosa ne pensate.

Screenshot of TranslateWiki interface
Il menù a tendina Insert nella barra di VE vi permetterà di accedere tramite l'opzione 'Special character'
Screenshot of Special Characters tool
Ecco il nuovo selettore. I vostri commenti in merito sono particolarmente graditi.

Gli sviluppatori apprezzerebbero molto se lasciaste un messaggio con il vostro feedback e la/e lingua/e usata/e per il test in questo thread su Mediawiki.org. E' davvero importante sentire i pareri di quante più persone possibile. Grazie! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 19:56, 24 Ghe 2014 (CET)

Ciao, nel riportare la vostra attenzione sull'argomento, vi propongo alcune domande specifiche del Product Manager di VisualEditor.
  • Dovremmo limitarci a mostrare l'intero set di caratteri presenti nello strumento "Caratteri speciali" nella toolbar dell'editor di wikitesto?
    • Se sì, non sarà eccessivo? Come farete a trovare il carattere che cercate? Cosa dovremmo fare per gli utenti che non hanno abbastanza spazio per visualizzare tutto?
  • Dovrebbe esserci una sezione "prioritaria" per quella dozzina o poco più di caratteri più usati regolarmente? Va bene un click in più per andare oltre un set così limitato?
    • Come dovrebbero essere suddivise le sezioni? Dovrebbero essere annidate? Ordinate?
    • Come si dovrebbe poter navigare tra le sezioni? Dovrebbe esserci un menù a scomparsa? Un menù annidato (cioè, con sotto-menù)?
  • Lo strumento dovrebbe essere disponibile permanentemente finché non viene nascosto? Dovrebbe apparire vicino al mouse? Dovrebbe sparire dopo ogni selezione, o 10 secondi dopo una selezione se non ne avvengono altre nel frattempo?
  • La toolbar ha già troppe opzioni - come la semplifichiamo?
Grazie a tutti per il vostro impegno nel testare VE! Se l'inglese è il vostro pane quotidiano, rispondete direttamente su mw:VisualEditor/Feedback; altrimenti fatevi sentire qui. A presto, --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 18:10, 12 Fre 2014 (CET)

Office hours in arrivo[càmbia | edit source]

Ciao, anche questo mese sono previsti degli "orari di ricevimento" :) durante i quali è possibile chiacchierare di VisualEditor insieme al suo Product Manager, James Forrester, e altri membri del team. Il primo è previsto per sabato 15 alle 17 UTC, ossia le 18 italiane, mentre il successivo si terrà poche ore dopo (vedere Meta per dettagli e link alla chat). Chi non si trova a suo agio con l'inglese o non può partecipare può lasciare eventuali domande qui. Di solito l'evento è abbastanza affollato e si tende a dare la precedenza ai partecipanti, anche perché così è senz'altro più semplice per James e altri ottenere a loro volta dei chiarimenti, ma in genere si riesce a far pervenire a ognuno una risposta in qualche modo, fosse anche in privato. Il registro della chat è pubblico e visibile a partire da poche ore dopo che questa si è tenuta. Grazie per l'attenzione, --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 14:14, 10 Fre 2014 (CET)

Universal Language Selector will be enabled by default again on this wiki by 21 February 2014[càmbia | edit source]

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

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

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

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

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

We look forward to seeing you!

Changes to the default site typography coming soon[càmbia | edit source]

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

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

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

For more information:

Importanti aggiornamenti relativi a VisualEditor[càmbia | edit source]

La newsletter globale (in inglese) fornisce dettagli meno tecnici e concentra l'attenzione sulle novità che possono interessare maggiormente gli utenti dei progetti WMF.
  • Ciao a tutti. Potete partecipare alla prossima office hour con James Forrester, Product Manager di VisualEditor, collegandovi a IRC sabato 19 aprile alle 20:00 UTC per un dibattito sullo stato attuale dell'editor e sugli sviluppi previsti nell'immediato futuro.
  • VE è cambiato molto recentemente; se non ne eravate al corrente, significa che dovete proprio iscrivervi alle newsletter relative! Vedere qui per quella in italiano; c'è da dire però che quella in inglese viene pubblicata più spesso e soprattutto potete riceverla su questo sito oppure su Meta.
  • Lo sapevate? Ci sono solo due pagine da consultare per controllare a che punto stanno le traduzioni nella vostra lingua relative a VisualEditor. Siete nella zona verde (bene!) o in quella rossa (male!)? Scopritelo subito, e poi cliccate su codice e nome della lingua per aggiornare le traduzioni!

No one needs free knowledge in Esperanto[càmbia | edit source]

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) 12:47, 5 Maj 2014 (CEST)

Importanti annunci relativi a VisualEditor[càmbia | edit source]

VisualEditor-logo.svg
Sentitevi liberi di tradurre questo messaggio nella lingua di questa wiki, se lo ritenete opportuno. Grazie!

Ciao a tutti. Dal momento che la squadra dei Community Liaison di cui faccio parte viene reclutata su sempre più wiki e per altri software, vi annuncio alcuni cambiamenti in merito al nostro modo di relazionarci con le Wikipedia con le quali abbiamo tenuto i contatti sinora.

  • Stiamo incoraggiando a lasciare commenti sulla pagina relativa di mediawiki.org, perché è quella che da ora in poi riceverà in modo centralizzato i feedback da pressoché tutte le Wikipedia, e che quindi l'intera squadra monitorerà per questo motivo. Apprezziamo comunque l'assistenza dei membri di questa comunità, e cogliamo l'occasione per ringraziare i più attivi per il prezioso supporto che sicuramente non ci faranno mancare anche in futuro! Se vedete richieste relative a VisualEditor su questa Wikipedia alle quali potete rispondere direttamente, o se volete invece tradurle in inglese e riportarle su mediawiki.org, siete davvero i benvenuti. Ad ogni modo, per agevolarvi ulteriormente anche sul piano linguistico, vi ricordo che avete comunque la possibilità di pormi direttamente i vostri quesiti su Wikipedia in italiano, in alternativa.
  • Abbiamo esteso a tutte le Wikipedia la possibilità di ricevere la "newsletter globale", solitamente pubblicata su en.wiki. Iscrivetevi su Meta; questo bollettino includerà gli aggiornamenti e gli annunci più importanti, così vedrete meno messaggi da parte nostra su questa pagina. Pubblicheremo qui il prossimo numero; per ricevere i successivi invece aggiungete questa pagina o la vostra pagina di discussione utente (o entrambe!) alla lista dei destinatari. Potrete poi valutare se tradurre la comunicazione nella vostra lingua in modo che raggiunga ancora più persone. Anche in questo caso, se preferite potete anche iscrivervi al bollettino di VE per it.wiki, pubblicato meno frequentemente.
  • Vi invitiamo a discutere dei recenti sviluppi e dei piani per il futuro di VisualEditor durante la prossima office hour di lunedì 19 maggio (ore 20 italiane) insieme a James Forrester (Product Manager). Se non potete partecipare ma vorreste comunque fargli una domanda potete lasciarla su mediawiki.org o sulla mia pagina di discussione entro il giorno prima e cercherò di ottenere una risposta. Contiamo di proseguire con queste sessioni mensili finché la comunità dimostrerà interesse.
  • Vi ricordiamo infine che i modi per raggiungere i Community Liaison sono elencati sulle nostre rispettive pagine utente, e che un messaggio in pagina di discussione utente è sempre un ottimo modo per richiamare la nostra attenzione o semplicemente tenersi in contatto.
Grazie per l'attenzione! Utente:Elitre (WMF) 16:32, 9 Maj 2014 (CEST)

VisualEditor global newsletter—May 2014[càmbia | edit source]

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.


Since the last newsletter, the VisualEditor team has mostly worked on the new citation tool, improving performance, reducing technical debt, and other infrastructure needs.

VisualEditor-logo.svg

Did you know?

VisualEditor - Editing References - Cite Pulldown.png

The cite menu offers quick access to up to five citation templates.  If your wiki has enabled the "Cite" menu, press "Cite" and select the appropriate template from the menu.

Existing citations that use these templates can be edited either using the "Cite" tool or by selecting the reference and choosing the "Basic" item in the "Insert" menu.

Read the user guide for more information.

The biggest change in the last few weeks is the new citation template menu, labeled "Cite". The new citation menu offers a locally configurable list of citation templates on the main toolbar. It adds or opens references using the simplified template dialog that was deployed last month. This tool is in addition to the "Basic" item in the "Insert" menu, and it is not displayed unless it has been configured for that wiki. To enable this tool on your wiki, see the instructions at VisualEditor/Citation tool.

Eventually, the VisualEditor team plans to add autofill features for these citations. When this long-awaited feature is created, you could add an ISBN, URL, DOI or other identifier to the citation tool, and VisualEditor would automatically fill in as much information for that source as possible. The concept drawings can be seen at mw:VisualEditor/Design/Reference Dialog, and your ideas about making referencing quick and easy are still wanted.

  • There is a new Beta Feature for setting content language and direction.  This allows editors who have opted in to use the "Limba" tool in the "Insert" menu to add HTML span tags that label text with the language and as being left-to-right (LTR) or right-to-left (RTL), like this:  <span lang="en" dir="ltr">English</span>. This tool is most useful for pages whose text combines multiple languages with different directions, common on Right-to-Left wikis.
  • The tool for editing mathematics formulae in VisualEditor has been slightly updated and is now available to all users, as the "Formula" item in the "Insert" menu. It uses LaTeX like in the wikitext editor.
  • The layout of template dialogs has been changed, putting the label above the field.  Parameters are now called "fields", to avoid a technical term that many editors are unfamiliar with.
  • TemplateData has been expanded:  You can now add "suggested" parameters in TemplateData, and VisualEditor will display them in the template dialogs like required ones.  "Suggested" is recommended for parameters that are commonly used, but not actually required to make the template work.  There is also a new type for TemplateData parameters: wiki-file-name, for file names.  The template tool can now tell you if a parameter is marked as being obsolete.
  • Some templates that previously displayed strangely due to absolute CSS positioning hacks should now display correctly.
  • Several messages have changed: The notices shown when you save a page have been merged into those used in the wikitext editor, for consistency.  The message shown when you "<visualeditor-toolbar-cancel>" out of an edit is clearer. The beta dialog notice, which is shown the first time you open VisualEditor, will be hidden for logged-in users via a user preference rather than a cookie.  As a result of this change, the beta notice will show up one last time for all logged-in users on their next VisualEditor use after Thursday's upgrade.
  • Adding a category that is a redirect to another category prompts you to add the target category instead of the redirect.
  • In the "Media" dialog, it is no longer possible to set a redundant border for thumbnail and framed images.
  • There is a new Template Documentation Editor for TemplateData.  You can test it by editing a documentation subpage (not a template page) at Mediawiki.org: edit mw:Template:Sandbox/doc, and then click "Manage template documentation" above the wikitext edit box.  If your community would like to use this TemplateData editor at your project, please contact product manager James Forrester or file an enhancement request in Bugzilla.
  • There have been multiple small changes to the appearance:  External links are shown in the same light blue color as in MediaWiki.  This is a lighter shade of blue than the internal links.  The styling of the "Style text" (character formatting) drop-down menu has been synchronized with the recent font changes to the Vector skin.  VisualEditor dialogs, such as the "Save page" dialog, now use a "loading" animation of moving lines, rather than animated GIF images.  Other changes were made to the appearance upon opening a page in VisualEditor which should make the transition between reading and editing be smoother.
  • The developers merged in many minor fixes and improvements to MediaWiki interface integration (e.g., edit notices), and made VisualEditor handle Education Program pages better.
  • At the request of the community, VisualEditor has been deployed to Commons as an opt-in. It is currently available by default for 161 Wikipedia language editions and by opt-in through Beta Features at all others, as well as on several non-Wikipedia sites.

Looking ahead:  The toolbar from the PageTriage extension will no longer be visible inside VisualEditor. More buttons and icons will be accessible from the keyboard.  The "Keyboard shortcuts" link will be moved out of the "Preferèntzias de sa pàgina" menu, into the "Agiudu" menu. Support for upright image sizes (preferred for accessibility) and inline images is being developed. You will be able to see the Table of Contents while editing. Looking further out, the developers are also working on support for viewing and editing hidden HTML comments. VisualEditor will be available to all users on mobile devices and tablet computers. It will be possible to upload images to Commons from inside VisualEditor.

If you have questions or suggestions for future improvements, or if you encounter problems, please let everyone know by posting a note at mw:VisualEditor/Feedback or by joining the office hours on Thursday, 19 June 2014 at 10:00 UTC. If you'd like to get this newsletter on your own page (about once a month), please subscribe at w:en:Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Newsletter for English Wikipedia only or at Meta for any project. Thank you! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 19:39, 22 Maj 2014 (CEST)

Media Viewer[càmbia | edit source]


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) 23:29, 23 Maj 2014 (CEST)

Using only UploadWizard for uploads[càmbia | edit source]

Wikimedia Commons logo

Hello! Sorry for writing in English. It was noted that on this wiki upload is not fully functional for users, who will experience a very difficult and/or illegal uploading. In fact, the licenses/copyright tags dropdown is empty, making it hard or impossible to comply with copyright requirements during upload itself.

Presumably, you don't have interest nor energies to have hundreds templates with the now required HTML, even less a local EDP. I propose to have

so that you can avoid local maintenance and all users can have a functioning, easy upload interface in their own language. All registered users can upload on Commons and existing files will not be affected.

All this will get done around 2014-07-03.

  1. If you disagree with the proposal, just remove your wiki from the list. Remember also to create MediaWiki:Licenses locally with any content (see a simple example), or uploads will be soon disabled anyway by MediaWiki itself (starting in version 1.24wmf11).
  2. To make the UploadWizard even better, please tell your experience and ideas on commons:Commons:Upload Wizard feedback.

Media Viewer is now live on this wiki[càmbia | edit source]


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) 23:54, 19 Làm 2014 (CEST)

VisualEditor global newsletter—July and August 2014[càmbia | edit source]

VisualEditor-logo.svg

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

Screenshot of VisualEditor's link tool
Dialog boxes in VisualEditor have been re-designed to use action words instead of icons. This has increased the number of items that need to be translated. The user guide is also being updated.

The biggest visible change since the last newsletter was to the dialog boxes. The design for each dialog box and window was simplified. The most commonly needed buttons are now at the top. Based on user feedback, the buttons are now labeled with simple words (like "Cancel" or "Done") instead of potentially confusing icons (like "<" or "X"). Many of the buttons to edit links, images, and other items now also show the linked page, image name, or other useful information when you click on them.

  • Hidden HTML comments (notes visible to editors, but not to readers) can now be read, edited, inserted, and removed. A small icon (a white exclamation mark on a dot) marks the location of each comments. You can click on the icon to see the comment.
  • You can now drag and drop text and templates as well as images. A new placement line makes it much easier to see where you are dropping the item. Images can no longer be dropped into the middle of paragraphs.
  • All references and footnotes (<ref> tags) are now made through the "Cite" menu, including the "Basic" (manual formatting) footnotes and the ability to re-use an existing citation, both of which were previously accessible only through the "Insert" menu. The "<visualeditor-dialogbutton-referencelist-tooltip>" is still added via the "Insert" menu.
  • When you add an image or other media file, you are now prompted to add an image caption immediately. You can also replace an image whilst keeping the original caption and other settings.
  • All tablet users visiting the mobile web version of Wikipedias will be able to opt-in to a version of VisualEditor from 14 August. You can test the new tool by choosing the beta version of the mobile view in the Settings menu.
  • The link tool has a new "Open" button that will open a linked page in another tab so you can make sure a link is the right one.
  • The "Cancel" button in the toolbar has been removed based on user testing. To cancel any edit, you can leave the page by clicking the Read tab, the back button in your browser, or closing the browser window without saving your changes.

Looking ahead[càmbia | edit source]

The team posts details about planned work on the VisualEditor roadmap. The VisualEditor team plans to add auto-fill features for citations soon. 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 adding rows and columns to tables. Work to support Internet Explorer is ongoing.

Feedback opportunities[càmbia | edit source]

The Editing team will be making two presentations this weekend at Wikimania in London. The first is with product manager James Forrester and developer Trevor Parscal on Saturday at 16:30. The second is with developers Roan Kattouw and Trevor Parscal on Sunday at 12:30. There is a VisualEditor Translation Sprint going on during Wikimania; whether you're in London or not, any contributions are welcome!

Please share your questions, suggestions, or problems by posting a note at the VisualEditor feedback page or by joining the office hours discussion on Thursday, 14 August 2014 at 09:00 UTC (daytime for Europe, Middle East and Asia) or on Thursday, 18 September 2014 at 16:00 UTC (daytime for the Americas; evening for Europe).

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decisions[càmbia | edit source]

The Wikimedia Foundation recently created a new feature, "superprotect" status. The purpose is to prevent pages from being edited by elected administrators -- but permitting WMF staff to edit them. It has been put to use in only one case: to protect the deployment of the Media Viewer software on German Wikipedia, in defiance of a clear decision of that community to disable the feature by default, unless users decide to enable it.

If you oppose these actions, please add your name to this letter. If you know non-Wikimedians who support our vision for the free sharing of knowledge, and would like to add their names to the list, please ask them to sign an identical version of the letter on change.org.

Process ideas for software development[càmbia | edit source]

’’My apologies for writing in English.’’

Hello,

I am notifying you that a brainstorming session has been started on Meta to help the Wikimedia Foundation increase and better affect community participation in software development across all wiki projects. Basically, how can you be more involved in helping to create features on Wikimedia projects? We are inviting all interested users to voice their ideas on how communities can be more involved and informed in the product development process at the Wikimedia Foundation. It would be very appreciated if you could translate this message to help inform your local communities as well.

I and the rest of my team welcome you to participate. We hope to see you on Meta.

Kind regards, -- Rdicerb (WMF) talk 00:15, 22 Aus 2014 (CEST)
