WikiProject Language samples: Help needed![uredi]

Pieter Bruegel the Elder - The Tower of Babel (Vienna) - Google Art Project - edited.jpg


Sorry for writing English – I only speak English and German. I search for someone with Croatian as their mother language, willing to help me with my project WikiProject Language samples:
The Wikipedia exists in many languages, in which we have articles about many languages. We already have a lot of high quality Wikipedia-articles about languages in which you can find information about the number of speakers, the vocabulary, stem and grammar of the language. But often one very natural question about a language is still left unanswered: "How does this language sound?". This is what I want to change with this project – I collect audio recordings of the same text (first article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights) in as many languages as possible. Therefore I hope for someone of you could make a recording of the following text and upload the audio-file to Wikimedia Commons:

"Članak 1.

Sva ljudska bića rađaju se slobodna i jednaka u dostojanstvu i pravima. Ona su obdarena razumom i sviješću i trebaju jedna prema drugima postupati u duhu bratstva."

You find some tips for recording on the project page. Also you could include the recordings already existing (~60!) to the articles of your Wikipedia or help me organize more language recordings. Thank you! -- MichaelSchoenitzer (razgovor) 14:29, 6. kolovoza 2017. (CEST)

Share your thoughts on the draft strategy direction[uredi]

Bok! I'm sorry that I'm not writing in Croatian. Molimo Vas, pomozite prevođenju na Vaš jezik!

At the beginning of this year, we initiated a broad discussion to form a strategic direction that will unite and inspire people across the entire movement. This direction will be the foundation on which we will build clear plans and set priorities. More than 80 communities and groups have discussed and gave feedback on-wiki, in person, virtually, and through private surveys[strategy 1][strategy 2]. We researched readers and consulted more than 150 experts[strategy 3]. We looked at future trends that will affect our mission, and gathered feedback from partners and donors.

In July, a group of community volunteers and representatives from the strategy team took on a task of synthesizing this feedback into an early version of the strategic direction that the broader movement can review and discuss.

The first draft is ready. Please read, share, and discuss on the talk page. Based on your feedback, the drafting group will refine and finalize this direction through August.

Draft strategy direction. Version #2[uredi]

In 2017, we initiated a broad discussion to form a strategic direction that will unite and inspire Wikimedians. This direction will be the foundation on which we will build clear plans and set priorities. More than 80 communities and groups discussed and gave feedback[strategy 1][strategy 2][strategy 3]. We researched readers and consulted more than 150 experts[strategy 4]. We looked at future trends that will affect our mission, and gathered feedback from partners and donors.

A group of community volunteers and representatives from the strategy team synthesized this feedback into an early version of the strategic direction that the broader movement can review and discuss.

The second version of the direction is ready. Again, please read, share, and discuss on the talk page on Meta. Based on your feedback, the drafting group will refine and finalize the direction.

What's the big deal about all that? Simple strategy is: write the articles. Cover the topics You did not cover before. Kubura (razgovor) 18:53, 11. rujna 2017. (CEST)
Kubura: no, that's not a strategy, it's an idea. An organizational strategy is a distinctive, specific term. What's more, my message is about a strategy for entire Wikimedia, including affiliates, and not only for individual contributors of Wikipedia. SGrabarczuk (WMF) (razgovor) 23:22, 12. rujna 2017.

RfC regarding "Interlinking of accounts involved with paid editing to decrease impersonation"[uredi]

There is currently a RfC open on Meta regarding "requiring those involved with paid editing on Wikipedia to link on their user page to all other active accounts through which they advertise paid Wikipedia editing business."

Note this is to apply to Wikipedia and not necessarily other sister projects, this is only to apply to websites where people are specifically advertising that they will edit Wikipedia for pay and not any other personal, professional, or social media accounts a person may have.

Please comment on meta. Thanks. Send on behalf of User:Doc James.

Wikimedia Movement Strategy phase 2, and a goodbye[uredi]


As phase one of the Wikimedia movement strategy process nears its close with the strategic direction being finalized, my contractor role as a coordinator is ending too. I am returning to my normal role as a volunteer (Tar Lócesilion) and wanted to thank you all for your participation in the process.

The strategic direction should be finalized on Meta late this weekend. The planning and designing of phase 2 of the strategy process will start in November. The next phase will again offer many opportunities to participate and discuss the future of our movement, and will focus on roles, resources, and responsibilities.

Hvala, SGrabarczuk (WMF) (razgovor) 23:41, 30. rujna 2017. (CEST)

Migration vocabulary translations[uredi]

[Sorry for the English]


On Wikidata there is currently a campaign to translate the "label", "description" and label of the "subclass" statement for 61 terms relating to Migration. This is part of the European Year of Cultural Heritage, and Europeana is running a campaign focused on personal stories of migration. Part of that project is to create a useful and multilingual vocabulary of migration-related terms that GLAMs can use in their metadata.

At the time that I write this message Croatian is one of the European Union official languages with the lowest % translation of these 61 terms in Wikidata - from practical things like "visa" and "map" to concepts like "asylum seeker" and "colonisation".

It would be really helpful if someone from the SK community could help improve this statistic :-) Please visit Wikidata:Europeana migration vocabulary to participate. Thank you. Wittylama (pogovor) 17:33, 14. marec 2018 (CET)

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

Request for administrative action - Moamer Kasumović[uredi]

Hi, sorry for posting in English (and to probably wrong place, but I did not find your administrator noticeboard, if you want to help other cross wiki patrolers, you can create redirect WP:AN to appropriate page where users can request something from administrators, like I'm doing now). I'm here during my cross wiki patrolling activity and I noticed I think this can be considered as libellious information and I'd like an administrator to hide the revision. Please note I do not watch this page. Should you want my reply, please add a link to my local userpage, I will receive a notification. Thank you for understanding and help. Best regards, --Martin Urbanec (razgovor) 23:23, 4. kolovoza 2018. (CEST)

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

(Molimo Vas, pomozite prevođenju na Vaš jezik)

Hi all,

as announced previously, permission handling for CSS/JS pages has changed: only members of the interface-admin (Administratori sučelja) group, and a few highly privileged global groups such as stewards, can edit CSS/JS pages that they do not own (that is, any page ending with .css or .js that is either in the MediaWiki: namespace or is another user's user subpage). This is done to improve the security of readers and editors of Wikimedia projects. More information is available at Creation of separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JS. If you encounter any unexpected problems, please contact me or file a bug.

No editing for 30 minutes on 17 January[uredi]

You will not be able to edit the wikis for up to 30 minutes on 17 January 07:00 UTC. This is because of a database problem that has to be fixed immediately. You can still read the wikis. Some wikis are not affected. They don't get this message. You can see which wikis are not affected on this page. Most wikis are affected. The time you can not edit might be shorter than 30 minutes. /Johan (WMF)
