Be a Wikimedia fundraising "User Experience" volunteer![acontza | edit source]

Thank you to everyone who volunteered last year on the Wikimedia fundraising 'User Experience' project. We have talked to many different people in different countries and their feedback has helped us immensely in restructuring our pages. If you haven't heard of it yet, the 'User Experience' project has the goal of understanding the donation experience in different countries (outside the USA) and enhancing the localization of our donation pages.

I am (still) searching for volunteers to spend some time on a Skype chat with me, reviewing their own country's donation pages. It will be done on a 'usability' format (I will ask you to read the text and go through the donation flow) and will be asking your feedback in the meanwhile.

The only pre-requisite is for the volunteer to actually live in the country and to have access to at least one donation method that we offer for that country (mainly credit/debit card, but also real time banking like IDEAL, E-wallets, etc...) so we can do a live test and see if the donation goes through. **All volunteers will be reimbursed of the donations that eventually succeed (and they will be very low amounts, like 1-2 dollars)**

By helping us you are actually helping thousands of people to support our mission of free knowledge across the world. If you are interested (or know of anyone who could be) please email ppena@wikimedia.org. All countries needed (excepting USA)!!

Thanks!

Wikimedia sites to move to primary data center in Ashburn, Virginia. Read-only mode expected.[acontza | edit source]

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.) Next week, the Wikimedia Foundation will transition its main technical operations to a new data center in Ashburn, Virginia, USA. This is intended to improve the technical performance and reliability of all Wikimedia sites, including this wiki. There will be some times when the site will be in read-only mode, and there may be full outages; the current target windows for the migration are January 22nd, 23rd and 24th, 2013, from 17:00 to 01:00 UTC (see other timezones on timeanddate.com). More information is available in the full announcement.

If you would like to stay informed of future technical upgrades, consider becoming a Tech ambassador and joining the ambassadors mailing list. You will be able to help your fellow Wikimedians have a voice in technical discussions and be notified of important decisions.

Thank you for your help and your understanding.

Wikidata phase 1 (language links) coming to this Wikipedia[acontza | edit source]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg

Sorry for writing in English. I hope someone can translate this locally.

Wikidata has been in development for a few months now. It is now time for the roll-out of the first part of it on your Wikipedia. Phase 1 is the support for the management of language links. It is already being used on the Hungarian, Hebrew, Italian and English Wikipedias. The next step is to enable the extension on all other Wikipedias. We have currently planned this for March 6.

What is Wikidata?[acontza | edit source]

Wikidata is a central place to store data that you can usually find in infoboxes. Think of it as something like Wikimedia Commons but for data (like the number of inhabitants of a country or the length of a river) instead of multimedia. The first part of this project (centralizing language links) is being rolled out now. The more fancy things will follow later.

What is going to happen?[acontza | edit source]

Language links in the sidebar are going to come from Wikidata in addition to the ones in the wiki text. To edit them, scroll to the bottom of the language links, and click edit. You no longer need to maintain these links by hand in the wiki text of the article.

Where can I find more information and ask questions?[acontza | edit source]

Editors on en:wp have created a great page with all the necessary information for editors and there is also an FAQ for this deployment. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

I want to be kept up to date about Wikidata[acontza | edit source]

Convert complex templates to Lua to make them faster and more powerful[acontza | edit source]

(Please consider translating this message for the benefit of your fellow Wikimedians)

Greetings. As you might have seen on the Wikimedia tech blog or the tech ambassadors list, a new functionality called "Lua" is being enabled on all Wikimedia sites today. Lua is a scripting language that enables you to write faster and more powerful MediaWiki templates.

If you have questions about how to convert existing templates to Lua (or how to create new ones), we'll be holding two support sessions on IRC next week: one on Wednesday (for Oceania, Asia & America) and one on Friday (for Europe, Africa & America); see m:IRC office hours for the details. If you can't make it, you can also get help at mw:Talk:Lua scripting.

If you'd like to learn about this kind of events earlier in advance, consider becoming a Tech ambassador by subscribing to the mailing list. You will also be able to help your fellow Wikimedians have a voice in technical discussions and be notified of important decisions.

Wikidata phase 2 (infoboxes) coming to this Wikipedia[acontza | edit source]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg

Sorry for writing in English. I hope someone can translate this. If you understand German better than English you can have a look at the announcement on de:Wikipedia:Kurier.

A while ago the first phase of Wikidata was enabled on this Wikipedia. This means you are getting the language links in each article from Wikidata. It is soon time to enable the second phase of Wikidata (infoboxes) here. We have already done this on the [first 11 Wikipedias] (it, he, hu, ru, tr, uk, uz, hr, bs, sr, sh) and things are looking good. The next step is English Wikipedia. This is planned for April 8. If everything works out fine we will deploy on all remaining Wikipedias on April 10. I will update this part of the FAQ if there are any issues forcing us to change this date. I will also sent another note to this village pump once the deployment is finished.

What will happen once we have phase 2 enabled here? Once it is enabled in a few days you will be able to make use of the structured data that is available on Wikidata in your articles/infoboxes. It includes things like the symbol for a chemical element, the ISBN for a book or the top level domain of a country. (None of this will happen automatically. Someone will have to change the article or infobox template for this to happen!)

How will this work? There are two ways to access the data:

  • Use a parser function like {{#property:p169}} in the wiki text of the article on Yahoo!. This will return “Marissa Mayer” as she is the chief executive officer of the company.
  • For more complicated things you can use Lua. The documentation for this is here.

We are working on expanding the parser function so you can for example use {{#property:chief executive officer}} instead of {{#property:p169}}. The complete plan for this is here.

Where can I test this? You can already test it on test2.

Where can I find more information and ask questions? We have collected the main questions in an FAQ for this deployment. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

Hello!

There is a new request for comment on Meta-Wiki concerning the removal of administrative rights from long-term inactive Wikimedians. Generally, this proposal from stewards would apply to wikis without an administrators' review process.

We are also compiling a list of projects with procedures for removing inactive administrators on the talk page of the request for comment. Feel free to add your project(s) to the list if you have a policy on administrator inactivity.

All input is appreciated. The discussion may close as soon as 21 May 2013 (2013-05-21), but this will be extended if needed.

A while ago the first phase of Wikidata was enabled on this Wikipedia. This means you are getting the language links in each article from Wikidata. We have now enabled the second phase of Wikidata (infoboxes) here. We have already done this on the [first 11 Wikipedias] (it, he, hu, ru, tr, uk, uz, hr, bs, sr, sh) a month ago and two days ago on the English Wikipedia. Today all the remaining Wikipedias followed.

What does having phase 2 enabled here mean? You are now able to make use of the structured data that is available on Wikidata in your articles/infoboxes. It includes things like the symbol for a chemical element, the ISBN for a book or the top level domain of a country. (None of this will happen automatically. Someone will have to change the article or infobox template for this to happen!) The current state is just the beginning though. It will be extended based on feedback we get from you now.

How will this work? There are two ways to access the data:

  • Use a parser function like {{#property:p159}} in the wiki text of the article on Wikimedia Foundation. This will return “San Francisco” as that is the headquarter location of the non-profit.
  • For more complicated things you can use Lua. The documentation for this is here.

We are working on expanding the parser function so you can for example use {{#property:headquarter location}} instead of {{#property:p159}}. The complete plan for this is here.

Where can I test this? You can test it on test2 if you don't want to do it in an article here.

Where can I find more information and ask questions? We have collected the main questions in an FAQ for this deployment. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

I want to be kept up to date about Wikidata To stay up-to-date on everything happening around Wikidata please subscribe to the newsletter that is delivered weekly to subscribed user’s talk pages.

[en] Change to wiki account system and account renaming[acontza | edit source]

[en] Change to section edit links[acontza | edit source]

The default position of the "edit" link in page section headers is going to change soon. The "edit" link will be positioned adjacent to the page header text rather than floating opposite it.

Section edit links will be to the immediate right of section titles, instead of on the far right. If you're an editor of one of the wikis which already implemented this change, nothing will substantially change for you; however, scripts and gadgets depending on the previous implementation of section edit links will have to be adjusted to continue working; however, nothing else should break even if they are not updated in time.

Detailed information and a timeline is available on meta.

Ideas to do this all the way to 2009 at least. It is often difficult to track which of several potential section edit links on the far right is associated with the correct section, and many readers and anonymous or new editors may even be failing to notice section edit links at all, since they read section titles, which are far away from the links.

VisualEditor[acontza | edit source]

Ciao a tutti. Sto passando nelle wiki delle lingue parlate in Italia per annunciare una novità che molto probabilmente non conoscete ancora: si chiama VisualEditor. Sarà la nuova interfaccia per creare e modificare testi nei nostri siti, e dalla versione beta in poi (che arriverà tra qualche tempo) renderà molto più semplice editare, il che potrebbe voler dire più utenti che arrivano, provano a scrivere, restano nella comunità. Per provarlo potete attivarlo subito tramite la pagina "Preferenze", nell'equivalente della sezione "Casella di modifica", selezionando l'opzione Abilita VisualEditor (solo nei namespace principale e Utente). Solo se per il momento si desidera continuare a usare l'editor tradizionale per la modifica di singole sezioni, si può spuntare anche la casella Utilizza l'editor di wikitesto per modificare le sezioni. Io faccio da referente per la comunità italofona, e perciò, per come la vedo io, anche per voi: se avete bisogno di aiuto o volete segnalare un bug scrivetemi qui, così cercheremo di risolvere eventuali problematiche il prima possibile e anche questa wiki sarà pronta nel momento in cui la transizione sarà completata. Vi lascio infine i link alle FAQ e al Manuale, e spero di avere presto vostre notizie. Ciao, --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 16:14, 24 Làm 2013 (CEST)

Pywikipedia is migrating to git[acontza | edit source]

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.

VisualEditor and your Wikipedia[acontza | edit source]

(Please translate this message)

Greetings,

The Wikimedia Foundation will soon turn on VisualEditor for all users, all the time on your Wikipedia. Right now your Wikipedia does not have any local documents on VisualEditor, and we hope that your community can change that. To find out about how you can help with translations visit the TranslationCentral for VisualEditor and read the easy instructions on bringing information to your Wikipedia. The User Guide and the FAQ are very important to have in your language.

We want to find out as much as we can from you about VisualEditor and how it helps your Wikipedia, and having local pages is a great way to start. We also encourage you to leave feedback on Mediawiki where the community can offer ideas, opinions, and point out bugs that may still exist in the software that need to be reported to Bugzilla. If you are able to speak for the concerns of others in English on MediaWiki or locally I encourage you to help your community to be represented in this process.

If you can help translate the user interface for VisualEditor to your language, you can help with that as well. Translatewiki has open tasks for translating VisualEditor. A direct link to translate the user interface is here. You can see how we are doing with those translations here. You need an account on Translatewiki to translate. This account is free and easy to create.

If we can help your community in any way with this process, please let me know and I will do my best to assist your Wikipedia with this |exciting development. You can contact me on my meta talk page or by email. You can also contact Patrick Earley for help with translations and documents on Mediawiki. We look forward to working with you to bring the VisualEditor experience to your Wikipedia! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:12, 30 Trì 2013 (CEST)

Caratteri speciali & VisualEditor[acontza | edit source]

Ciao a tutti, per chi ancora non lo sapesse nella seconda metà del mese dovrebbe essere attivato di default anche su questa wiki "VisualEditor", il nuovo editor visuale di Wikipedia, che potete già vedere in funzione per esempio su en.wiki (o anche su questa wiki se lo attivate dalle vostre preferenze). VisualEditor affiancherà l'editor classico che abbiamo usato finora, VisualEditor però manca dei caratteri speciali, il che per wiki come questa è un bel problema, problema che però può essere risolto grazie ad un'altra estensione di recente attivata su tutte le wiki: Universal Language Selector. Su vec.wiki siamo già a buon punto per quanto riguarda la soluzione al problema mediante quest'estensione dato che ci resta solo l'ultimo passaggio (ovvero l'effettiva richiesta, che non abbiamo ben capito se va fatta su Bugzilla o altrove... abbiamo chiesto info a chi dovrebbe saperlo ed appena avremo una risposta aggiornerò questa discussione). Nel frattempo invito anche la vostra comunità a discutere le combinazioni di carattere da usare in vista della preparazione del codice; ovviamente sempre se siete interessati ad usare questo semplice metodo che risolve il problema della mancanza dei suddetti caratteri sul nuovo editor ma che facilita la vita anche a chi continuerà ad usare il vecchio editor.
Per prima cosa direi che serve un elenco dei caratteri che non trovate sulla tastiera ma che sono essenziali per scrivere nella vostra lingua. Poi una volta che c'è l'elenco si discute la miglior combinazione di caratteri, per es. su vec.wiki abbiamo deciso che per ottenere đ si scriverà dh (funziona così, tu digiti la combinazione, in questo caso dh ed il sistema te lo convertirà automaticamente nel carattere scelto, nel nostro caso đ... il che è molto più pratico che andare a pescare ogni volta il carattere dai "Caratteri speciali"). Una volta definita la combinazione si può preparare il codice (basterà modificare ad hoc quello preparato per vec.wiki).--GatoSelvadego (talk) 12:38, 6 Aus 2013 (CEST)

Riprendo questa vecchia discussione, sulle wiki vec stiamo usando da qualche giorno il nuovo e comodo modo di inserimento dei caratteri speciali. Nel caso serva anche a voi una cosa simile(non vedo però caratteri strani) fatemi un fischio che sono a vostra disposizione per la preparazione del codice e la richiesta su GitHub.--GatoSelvadego (talk) 17:31, 25 Fre 2014 (CET)

HTTPS for users with an account[acontza | edit source]

Notifications[acontza | edit source]

Notifications inform you of new activity that affects you -- and let you take quick action.

(This message is in English, please translate as needed)

Greetings!

Notifications will inform users about new activity that affects them on this wiki in a unified way: for example, this new tool will let you know when you have new talk page messages, edit reverts, mentions or links -- and is designed to augment (rather than replace) the watchlist. The Wikimedia Foundation's editor engagement team developed this tool (code-named 'Echo') earlier this year, to help users contribute more productively to MediaWiki projects.

We're now getting ready to bring Notifications to almost all other Wikimedia sites, and are aiming for a 22 October deployment, as outlined in this release plan. It is important that notifications is translated for all of the languages we serve.

There are three major points of translation needed to be either done or checked:

Please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions or comments about this new tool. For more information, visit this project hub and this help page. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:11, 4 Stg 2013 (CEST)

Introducting Beta Features[acontza | edit source]

(Apologies for writing in English. Please translate if necessary)

We would like to let you know about Beta Features, a new program from the Wikimedia Foundation that lets you try out new features before they are released for everyone.

Think of it as a digital laboratory where community members can preview upcoming software and give feedback to help improve them. This special preference page lets designers and engineers experiment with new features on a broad scale, but in a way that's not disruptive.

Beta Features is now ready for testing on MediaWiki.org. It will also be released on Wikimedia Commons and MetaWiki this Thursday, 7 November. Based on test results, the plan is to release it on all wikis worldwide on 21 November, 2013.

Here are the first features you can test this week:

Would you like to try out Beta Features now? After you log in on MediaWiki.org, a small 'Beta' link will appear next to your 'Preferences'. Click on it to see features you can test, check the ones you want, then click 'Save'. Learn more on the Beta Features page.

After you've tested Beta Features, please let the developers know what you think on this discussion page -- or report any bugs here on Bugzilla. You're also welcome to join this IRC office hours chat on Friday, 8 November at 18:30 UTC.

Beta Features was developed by the Wikimedia Foundation's Design, Multimedia and VisualEditor teams. Along with other developers, they will be adding new features to this experimental program every few weeks. They are very grateful to all the community members who helped create this project — and look forward to many more productive collaborations in the future.

Enjoy, and don't forget to let developers know what you think! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:35, 5 Std 2013 (CET)

VisualEditor in arrivo su questa wiki[acontza | edit source]

Ciao a tutti. VisualEditor arriverà su questo progetto il 2 dicembre 2013. Come anticipato nei mesi scorsi, VisualEditor è un software in fase di sviluppo che permette agli utenti di modificare le pagine di questo sito senza imparare prima la “wikisintassi” (ad es. [[ e ]] per linkare a un’altra pagina). E’ già disponibile e attivo su molte altre Wikipedia (ad es., oltre a quella in italiano, quelle in napolitano, siciliano e veneto), e in realtà potreste già averlo testato anche qui abilitandolo dalle Preferenze come suggeritovi in passato. Per ulteriori informazioni si può leggere comunque questa pagina.

Una volta che il software sarà attivato potrete scegliere se usare VE o l’editor tradizionale. Cliccando su “Modifica” sarà lanciato VisualEditor; per usare l’editor classico invece basterà premere “Modifica sorgente”. E’ a vostra disposizione un manuale apposito per imparare a usare correttamente VE.

Ci auguriamo che il software sia utile a editor attuali e futuri di questa comunità, e ci servirebbe proprio il vostro aiuto per migliorarlo! Per favore, comunicateci eventuali difficoltà riscontrate durante l’utilizzo. Se ve la sentite, potete riportare il problema su Bugzilla usando la nuova procedura guidata semplificata. Altrimenti, descrivetelo pure sulla pagina centrale di feedback su MediaWiki.org. Se notate malfunzionamenti particolarmente gravi sul vostro progetto, potete invece segnalarceli direttamente: potete lasciare un messaggio sulla mia pagina di discussione oppure, se si tratta di un’emergenza (ad es. un bug che di punto in bianco inizia a corrompere tutte le voci quando queste vengono modificate con VisualEditor), potete scrivere a James Forrester, il Product Manager, all’indirizzo jforrester@wikimedia.org.

Se ne avete la possibilità, per favore testate il nuovo editor sin d’ora. Questo ci permetterà di venire a conoscenza di problemi specifici di questa Wikipedia prima del lancio. Per abilitarlo, basta andare sulle proprie “Preferenze” → “Casella di Modifica” → “Abilita VisualEditor”. cliccare sul link Beta (reperibile in alto su ogni pagina), e assicurarsi che il segno di spunta su VisualEditor sia presente.

Apprezzeremmo molto il vostro aiuto con le traduzioni di pagine relative a VisualEditor (qui e/o su MediaWiki.org) e dell’interfaccia utente. Per dettagli si può consultare la VisualEditor TranslationCentral. Per tradurre l’interfaccia, basta creare un account su TranslateWiki (se non se ne possiede già uno). Una volta che la richiesta dell’account viene approvata, non resta che selezionare la propria lingua da questa lista. Apparirà così una lista di messaggi: da una parte ci sarà l’originale in inglese, dall’altra l’opzione per modificare, che aprirà una finestra nella quale lavorare. Infine, un accenno alla guida dell’utente, un altro documento importante. Per tradurlo, si può semplicemente cliccare su questa pagina, e selezionare “Traduci questa pagina”. La vostra lingua sarà raggiungibile dal menù a tendina sulla destra. Se volete dare una mano con le traduzioni e discuterne, lasciatemi pure un messaggio nella mia pagina utente.

Grazie, e buon editing a tutti! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 13:09, 16 Std 2013 (CET)

PS: Rispetto a quest’estate c’è peraltro la grossa novità rappresentata dalla possibilità di passare direttamente da VE all’editor tradizionale (senza cioè dover salvare prima); il che permetterà non solo di apportare tutte le modifiche desiderate e di poter avvistare e correggere più facilmente eventuali errori, ma fungerà anche da escamotage temporaneo per quanto riguarda eventuali problemi con caratteri da inserire non presenti sulla vostra tastiera, perché terminando l'edit con l'editor tradizionale potrete selezionarli ad es. dalla tendina "Special Characters" in alto. Se invece la mia valutazione non fosse corretta, e in generale per segnalare problematicità che devono essere risolte prima dell'arrivo di VE, vi rinnovo l'invito a contattarmi tempestivamente in pagina di discussione. Grazie!

Riguardo al lavoro da fare: per l'interfaccia siete ancora allo 0%, e sarebbe fondamentale occuparsene prima di lunedì. Per il resto delle pagine che potrebbero essere utili alla vostra comunità, trovate l'elenco di quelle da creare qui. Se non siete a vostro agio con il sistema di traduzione "a fronte" su Mediawiki, sentitevi liberi di crearle allora qui sopra (meglio di niente!). Grazie a tutti, --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 18:50, 28 Std 2013 (CET)

Reminder: office hour per VisualEditor[acontza | 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?[acontza | 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[acontza | 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[acontza | 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[acontza | 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

Changes to the default site typography coming soon[acontza | 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[acontza | 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[acontza | 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[acontza | 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[acontza | 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 "Language" 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 "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 "Help" 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.

Media Viewer[acontza | 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[acontza | 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[acontza | 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)
