Request for comment on Commons: Should Wikimedia support MP4 video?[rediger]

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) 16. jan. 2014 kl. 07:47 (CET)

Universal Language Selector will be enabled by default again on this wiki by 21 February 2014[rediger]

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

Proposed optional changes to Terms of Use amendment[rediger]

Hello all, in response to some community comments in the discussion on the amendment to the Terms of Use on undisclosed paid editing, we have prepared two optional changes. Please read about these optional changes on Meta wiki and share your comments. If you can (and this is a non english project), please translate this announcement. Thanks!

Changes to the default site typography coming soon[rediger]

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.

Pronunciation Recording[rediger]

Visual workflow draft for pronunciation recording gadget; If you have trouble watching this video here, watch it on vimeo. A more extensive/explanative version is available.

Dear Wiktionary community!

About me
My name is Rainer Rillke, and I have been volunteering at Wikimedia Commons for 3 years now, gathering experience around media files. I've been always interested in how things work and how one could improve them.
The idea
One idea that appeared last Summer was allowing the recording of small chunks of speech, uploading that to Wikimedia Commons in the background and including this into a Wiktionary entry without having the hassle doing everything by hand or installing additional software. That idea led to the foundation of MediaWiki extension PronunciationRecording during the Google Summer of Code. However, this was not completed; instead development is stale for over 5 months now.
My proposal
To make this going to work, so Wiktionary has an immediate benefit of this feature, I would like to provide the work done so far as a gadget and add some more work in regard to usability. You can see my plan at m:Grants:IEG/Finish Pronunciation Recording. And more importantly, you can give me a hand, if you are interested by writing your comments.

Thanks and kind regards --Rillke (diskusjon) 7. apr. 2014 kl. 19:26 (CEST)

Using only UploadWizard for uploads[rediger]

Wikimedia Commons logo

Hello! It was noted that on this wiki you have less than 10 local files. Presumably, you therefore don't have interest nor energies to have hundreds templates with the now required HTML, even less a local EDP. However, this means that users here will experience a mostly broken and/or illegal uploading. I propose to

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.

I'll get this done in one week from now.

  1. If you disagree with the proposal, just remove your wiki from the list.
  2. To make the UploadWizard even better, please tell your experience and ideas on commons:Commons:Upload Wizard feedback.

Media Viewer[rediger]

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. mai 2014 kl. 23:29 (CEST)

Media Viewer is now live on this wiki[rediger]

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) 19. jun. 2014 kl. 23:54 (CEST)

VIKTIG: Gjennomgang av administrative aktiviteter[rediger]

Hallo. En ny policy vedrørende fjerning av rettigheter for administratorer, byråkrater o.a. er nettopp trådt i kraft global community consensus (Deres nettsamfunn har fått melding om den pågående diskusjonen).

I tråd med denne policyen følger stewardene med på administrative aktiviteter på mindre wikier. Så vidt vi er kjent med, har deres wiki ingen formell prosess for å fjerne "avanserte rettigheter" ved langvarig inaktivitet. Dette innebærer at stewardene vil ordne dette i tråd med de nye admin activity review oversikter over administratoraktiviteter.

Vi har funnet at følgende brukere kan ansees inaktive (ingen redigeringer og ingen logget aktivitet i mere enn 2 år)

  1. Arj (administrator)
  2. Ben (byråkrat, administrator)
  3. Kåre-Olav (administrator)
  4. Ninni (administrator)

Disse brukerne vil motta melding snart, om at de må ta det opp med wikisamfunnet om de ønsker å beholde rettighetene. Hvis henvendelsen ikke blir besvart, vil stewardene fjerne rettighetene.

Men nettsamfunnet står fritt til å skape egne prosedyrer. Det kan også ha skjedd at vi ikke har fått med oss allerede eksisterende prosedyrer. I så fall: Meld fra til stewards on Meta-Wiki slik at vi ikke kjører prosedyren på deres Wiki. Takk! Rschen7754 30. jul. 2014 kl. 23:02 (CEST)

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decisions[rediger]

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.

Meta RfCs on two new global groups[rediger]

Hello all,

There are currently requests for comment open on meta to create two new global groups. The first is a group for members of the OTRS permissions queue, which would grant them autopatrolled rights on all wikis except those who opt-out. That proposal can be found at m:Requests for comment/Creation of a global OTRS-permissions user group. The second is a group for Wikimedia Commons admins and OTRS agents to view deleted file pages through the 'viewdeletedfile' right on all wikis except those who opt-out. The second proposal can be found at m:Requests for comment/Global file deletion review.

We would like to hear what you think on both proposals. Both are in English; if you wanted to translate them into your native language that would also be appreciated.

It is possible for individual projects to opt-out, so that users in those groups do not have any additional rights on those projects. To do this please start a local discussion, and if there is consensus you can request to opt-out of either or both at m:Stewards' noticeboard.

Thanks and regards, Ajraddatz (talk) 26. okt. 2014 kl. 19:04 (CET)

Global AbuseFilter[rediger]


AbuseFilter is a MediaWiki extension used to detect likely abusive behavior patterns, like pattern vandalism and spam. In 2013, Global AbuseFilters were enabled on a limited set of wikis including Meta-Wiki, MediaWiki.org, Wikispecies and (in early 2014) all the "small wikis". Recently, global abuse filters were enabled on "medium sized wikis" as well. These filters are currently managed by stewards on Meta-Wiki and have shown to be very effective in preventing mass spam attacks across Wikimedia projects. However, there is currently no policy on how the global AbuseFilters will be managed although there are proposals. There is an ongoing request for comment on policy governing the use of the global AbuseFilters. In the meantime, specific wikis can opt out of using the global AbuseFilter. These wikis can simply add a request to this list on Meta-Wiki. More details can be found on this page at Meta-Wiki. If you have any questions, feel free to ask on m:Talk:Global AbuseFilter.

IMPORTANT: Admin activity review[rediger]

Hello. A policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc) was adopted by global community consensus in 2013. According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing administrators' activity on all Wikimedia Foundation wikis with no inactivity policy. To the best of our knowledge, your wiki does not have a formal process for removing "advanced rights" from inactive accounts. This means that the stewards will take care of this according to the admin activity review.

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

  1. V85 (administrator)

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

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

Forbedret oversettelsesmal[rediger]

Jeg ønsker å få hjelp fra Wikimedia Foundation til å lage en forbedret oversettelsesmal slik som de etter hvert har fått både på engelsk, fransk, tysk og svensk Wiktionary. Med denne får brukere opp et dialogvindu inne i oversettelsesseksjonen. Kjenner man ikke wikikode trenger man kun å skrive inn selve oversettelsen, legge til kjønn eller annen info fra en valgboks, trykke "forhåndsvis" og deretter "lagre". Jeg har prøvd det selv på disse andre sitene og sett at det gjør jobben mye raskere. Siden jeg selv ikke kan nok om hvordan man koder en slik mal trenger jeg da bistand.

Jeg lager da en rask avstemning her. Jeg lar den stå åpen en uke, om ikke andre regler tilsier at den bør stå åpen lengre. Jeg har også kontaktet noen av de som har bidratt mest historisk sett for å få dem til å stemme.

I would like to get help from the Wikimedia Foundation to create an enhanced translation template like the ones they use both in the English, French, German and Swedish Wiktionary. With this template or gadget users get a dialog window inside the translation section. If you do not know the wiki code you only need to enter the translation, add gender or other information from a selection box, press "preview" and then "save". I've tried it myself on these other sites and I have seen that it makes the job much faster. Since I don't know enough about how to code such a feature I will need some assistance.

I have made a quick poll here. I leave it open for a week if not other rules dictate that it should remain open longer. I also contacted some of those who have contributed most historically to get them to vote.

Update: It seems that what is needed is a script. I found the one they use at swewikt. This one is itself modifield from enwikt. It is called editor.js. I have translated all the things I thought necessary and made my own script at Bruker:Teodor605/editor.js. This script is presently not working. Actually I can't get it to do anything yet. It seems that it isn't invoked anywhere. I have told my global.js to import the script and also shift-refreshed my browser but that doesn't help either. Can anybody tell me what more to do? I am not a programmer...
Also, since all opinions have been in favour I don't think I need to wait a week to employ the script. What I would like is for those of you who know something to try to run the script yourselves, help me with finding its shortcomings and then test it out. After that we might make it run for everybody. I know of some shortcomings already but my main point now is to make it executable and tested out LOL

Den virker ikke på alle sider. F.eks. virker den ikke på svart. Den siger "Fant ingen oversettelsesoppslag for 'da:sort'. Vennligst omformater". Desuden kan man ikke indsætte hele oversættelsesskabelonen (med oversættelse(r)) på opslag uden oversættelser. Det kan den på svwiktionary.

Dette er det samme problemet som jeg har anfør tidligere som problem på Bjørnevokteren. Det går også på svart hvis man først går til selve malen og deretter legger inn en oversettelse. Merkelig... Jeg forsker litt på det og utdyper i problemseksjonen øverst i skriptet.
Jeg kontakter også de andre som ha votert og oppfordrer dem til å legge inn skriptet hos seg. Ønsker litt mer testing og deretter få skriptet inn som standardfunksjonalitet.

- Sarrus (db) d. 11. apr. 2015 kl. 15:05 (CEST)
@Sarrus: Jeg tror det er som du sier. Malen {{+overs+}} er foreldet. De kan sikkert bygges inn i javscriptet at den gjør det samme på artikler som bruker denne malen. Jeg har imidlertid sett at det er en bot (som visstnok ikke er aktiv mer) som endrer {{+overs+}} til "====Oversettelser====". Kan prøve å se om jeg kan overta den boten eller bruke AWS til å få endret alle disse.

Nominations are being accepted for 2015 Wikimedia Foundation elections[rediger]

This is a message from the 2015 Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee. Translations are available.

Wmf logo vert pms.svg


I am pleased to announce that nominations are now being accepted for the 2015 Wikimedia Foundation Elections. This year the Board and the FDC Staff are looking for a diverse set of candidates from regions and projects that are traditionally under-represented on the board and in the movement as well as candidates with experience in technology, product or finance. To this end they have published letters describing what they think is needed and, recognizing that those who know the community the best are the community themselves, the election committee is accepting nominations for community members you think should run and will reach out to those nominated to provide them with information about the job and the election process.

This year, elections are being held for the following roles:

Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is the decision-making body that is ultimately responsible for the long term sustainability of the Foundation, so we value wide input into its selection. There are three positions being filled. More information about this role can be found at the board elections page.

Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC)
The Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) makes recommendations about how to allocate Wikimedia movement funds to eligible entities. There are five positions being filled. More information about this role can be found at the FDC elections page.

Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) Ombud
The FDC Ombud receives complaints and feedback about the FDC process, investigates complaints at the request of the Board of Trustees, and summarizes the investigations and feedback for the Board of Trustees on an annual basis. One position is being filled. More information about this role can be found at the FDC Ombudsperson elections page.

The candidacy submission phase lasts from 00:00 UTC April 20 to 23:59 UTC May 5 for the Board and from 00:00 UTCApril 20 to 23:59 UTC April 30 for the FDC and FDC Ombudsperson. This year, we are accepting both self-nominations and nominations of others. More information on this election and the nomination process can be found on the 2015 Wikimedia elections page on Meta-Wiki.

Please feel free to post a note about the election on your project's village pump. Any questions related to the election can be posted on the talk page on Meta, or sent to the election committee's mailing list, board-elections -at- wikimedia.org

On behalf of the Elections Committee,

Pywikibot compat will no longer be supported - Please migrate to pywikibot core[rediger]

Sorry for English, I hope someone translates this.
Pywikibot (then "Pywikipediabot") was started back in 2002. In 2007 a new branch (formerly known as "rewrite", now called "core") was started from scratch using the MediaWiki API. The developers of Pywikibot have decided to stop supporting the compat version of Pywikibot due to bad performance and architectural errors that make it hard to update, compared to core. If you are using pywikibot compat it is likely your code will break due to upcoming MediaWiki API changes (e.g. T101524). It is highly recommended you migrate to the core framework. There is a migration guide, and please contact us if you have any problem.

There is an upcoming MediaWiki API breaking change that compat will not be updated for. If your bot's name is in this list, your bot will most likely break.

Thank you,
The Pywikibot development team, 19:30, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

Proposal to create PNG thumbnails of static GIF images[rediger]

The thumbnail of this gif is of really bad quality.
How a PNG thumb of this GIF would look like

There is a proposal at the Commons Village Pump requesting feedback about the thumbnails of static GIF images: It states that static GIF files should have their thumbnails created in PNG. The advantages of PNG over GIF would be visible especially with GIF images using an alpha channel. (compare the thumbnails on the side)

This change would affect all wikis, so if you support/oppose or want to give general feedback/concerns, please post them to the proposal page. Thank you. --McZusatz (talk) & MediaWiki message delivery (diskusjon) 24. jul. 2015 kl. 07:07 (CEST)

Why get involved?[rediger]

The world is changing. The way we relate to knowledge is transforming. As the next billion people come online, the Wikimedia movement is working to bring more users on the wiki projects. The way we interact and collaborate online are key to building sustainable projects. How accessible are Wikimedia projects to newcomers today? Are we helping each other learn?
