Education outreach update[baguhin ang batayan]

Mabuhay, friends. :) Apologies for my English. Just checking in and hoping to hear how things are going with your education outreach and the Smart Tap & Learn Road Show. Would you please post an update here: Outreach:Education/Countries/Philippines and would you please write up a brief summary about what's been done so far here: Outreach:Education/Newsletter/Newsroom. We discussed this in Manila. It will be the first contribution to the Education Newsletter from the Philippines! Maraming salamat po. Anna Koval (WMF) (usapan) 13:51, 19 Nobyembre 2014 (UTC)

May in-edit akong article pero binalik lng ito sa dati nitong itsura..[baguhin ang batayan]

Inedit ko ang artikolo ng Mona Lisa sa tagalog, pero may isang admin. Ang nagbago dito at ibinalik sa dati "WayKurat" ang username nya. Pumunta sakin ang kaibigan ko upang isalin ko ang English Article ng Mona Lisa sa Tagalog at nagawa ko naman ito ng maayos, naipasa nya sa kanyang guro sa kolehiyo at mataas na grado ang natamo nya. Doon ko na isip na ilagay ko ito wikipedia upang makatulong pa sa iba. Paulit-ulit ko itong inayos ng inayos hanggang makatulog ako, pero ng pag gising ko binago ito kagad ng admin at ibinalik sa dating edit na ang gulo naman ng pagkaka-tagalog. Ano bang ang gagawin ko para hindi na ito maulit na tila binu-bully ako. Paano makakasigurong hindi mababasura ang pinaghirapan ko??? —Ang komentong ito ay idinagdag ni Melgazar Abanto Galvan (usapankontribusyon) noong 14:34, Enero 26, 2015‎ .

Personally, hindi ko gusto 'yung bawat section heading ay may logo ng Wikipedia. Actually, mas gusto ko 'yung walang mga larawan ang mga section headings. Simple at mas madali kasi mag-load ang pahina kapag konti lang ang larawan. Hindi ko pa nasubukan ang Unang Pahina sa mobile version ngunit 'yung kasalukuyang Unang Pahina ay hindi magandang tingnan sa mobile version. Minumungkahi ko rin na ayusin ang main heading ng Unang Pahina kasi hindi rin maganda ang itsura nya sa ibang screen resolution.

Inspire Campaign: Improving diversity, improving content[baguhin ang batayan]

This March, we’re organizing an Inspire Campaign to encourage and support new ideas for improving gender diversity on Wikimedia projects. Less than 20% of Wikimedia contributors are women, and many important topics are still missing in our content. We invite all Wikimedians to participate. If you have an idea that could help address this problem, please get involved today! The campaign runs until March 31.

All proposals are welcome - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive, positive feedback on ideas is appreciated, and collaboration is encouraged - your skills and experience may help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign and help this project better represent the world’s knowledge!

Nominations are being accepted for 2015 Wikimedia Foundation elections[baguhin ang batayan]

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

Wmf logo vert pms.svg

Greetings,

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[baguhin ang batayan]

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 Community Engagement department at the Wikimedia Foundation has launched a new learning campaign. The WMF wants to record community impressions about what makes a healthy online community. Share your views and/or create a drawing and take a chance to win a Wikimania 2016 scholarship! Join the WMF as we begin a conversation about Community Health. Contribute a drawing or answer the questions on the campaign's page.

Why get involved?[baguhin ang batayan]

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?
Share your views on this matter that affects us all!
We invite everyone to take part in this learning campaign. Wikimedia Foundation will distribute one Wikimania Scholarship 2016 among those participants who are eligible.

Wikidata: Access to data from arbitrary items is coming[baguhin ang batayan]

(Sorry for writing in English)

When using data from Wikidata on Wikipedia and other sister projects, there is currently a limitation in place that hinders some use cases: data can only be accessed from the corresponding item. So, for example, the Wikipedia article about Berlin can only get data from the Wikidata item about Berlin but not from the item about Germany. This had technical reasons. We are now removing this limitation. It is already done for many projects. Your project is one of the next ones. We will roll out this feature here on August 12.

We invite you to play around with this new feature if you are one of the people who have been waiting for this for a long time. If you have technical issues/questions with this you can come to d:Wikidata:Contact the development team.

A note of caution: Please be careful with how many items you use for a single page. If it is too many pages, loading might get slow. We will have to see how the feature behaves in production to see where we need to tweak and how.

How to use it, once it is enabled:

Your attention please: VisualEditor feedback will be centralized on www.mediawiki.org[baguhin ang batayan]

VisualEditor-logo-pacifico.svg

Hello. The VisualEditor team would like to inform you of a plan to redirect local pages for VisualEditor feedback to the board on mediawiki.org a few weeks from now. This applies to all the wikis where such pages are inactive or have low traffic, including yours. When this happens, editors will be free to use their own language to write on the mediawiki.org's page - although English is the most popular language there. Even feedback left from within VisualEditor with the built-in tool will be posted to the board on mediawiki.org.

Click on the image to enlarge it: location of the built-in feedback tool in VisualEditor.
Click on the image to enlarge it: screenshot of the new feedback board on mediawiki.org.

Having all the feedback on a single, centralized place mainly means getting faster, more frequent replies and more attention from a higher number of people, including the people who are building the software. It also means chances are high, that editors will find that someone else has already written there about the issues or requests they wanted to post.

Maintaining a local page instead can be cumbersome: it needs to be checked frequently in case someone reports urgent issues. Old threads need to be archived from time to time. Off-topic comments should be removed to keep readability. Feedback left there is sometimes not easily understandable or actionable at all.

We think this will help us in being more effective while processing feedback from a larger pool of wikis, not just the biggest ones. If you have any comments about this announcement, please leave them at my talk page. Thanks for your understanding, Elitre (WMF) 18:02, 27 Agosto 2015 (UTC)

Wikimania 2016 scholarships ambassadors needed[baguhin ang batayan]

Hello! Wikimania 2016 scholarships will soon be open; by the end of the week we'll form the committee and we need your help, see Scholarship committee for details.

If you want to carefully review nearly a thousand applications in January, you might be a perfect committee member. Otherwise, you can volunteer as "ambassador": you will observe all the committee activities, ensure that people from your language or project manage to apply for a scholarship, translate scholarship applications written in your language to English and so on. Ambassadors are allowed to ask for a scholarship, unlike committee members.

Your input requested on the proposed #FreeBassel banner campaign[baguhin ang batayan]

This is a message regarding the proposed 2015 Free Bassel banner. Translations are available.

Hi everyone,

This is to inform all Wikimedia contributors that a straw poll seeking your involvement has just been started on Meta-Wiki.

As some of your might be aware, a small group of Wikimedia volunteers have proposed a banner campaign informing Wikipedia readers about the urgent situation of our fellow Wikipedian, open source software developer and Creative Commons activist, Bassel Khartabil. An exemplary banner and an explanatory page have now been prepared, and translated into about half a dozen languages by volunteer translators.

We are seeking your involvement to decide if the global Wikimedia community approves starting a banner campaign asking Wikipedia readers to call on the Syrian government to release Bassel from prison. We understand that a campaign like this would be unprecedented in Wikipedia's history, which is why we're seeking the widest possible consensus among the community.

Given Bassel's urgent situation and the resulting tight schedule, we ask everyone to get involved with the poll and the discussion to the widest possible extent, and to promote it among your communities as soon as possible.

(Apologies for writing in English; please kindly translate this message into your own language.)

Thank you for your participation!

Your attention please: feedback about the visual editor will soon be centralized on www.mediawiki.org[baguhin ang batayan]

Hello again. Please excuse the English. Please help translate to your language. Thank you!

This is an update from the Editing team about redirecting local pages for feedback about the visual editor to the board on mediawiki.org. This is now technically feasible and will happen in early 2016. It applies to several wikis where such pages are inactive or have low traffic, including this wiki. We think this will help us in being more effective while processing feedback from a larger pool of wikis, not just the biggest ones. Please read our previous announcement from late August for more information; we thought we would double-check that this community is informed and agrees with the change. Please notice that if at least one community member here expressly commits to taking care of the local page, the redirect will not be necessary at this time, though. If you'd like to step up and be that person, please let me know within one week: we'll need to establish a clear process as soon as possible so that this person knows when and how to escalate issues to Phabricator or to Community Liaisons, and can receive useful tips based on our experience.

Thanks for your understanding, Elitre (WMF) 18:39, 14 Disyembre 2015 (UTC)

Get involved in Wikipedia 15![baguhin ang batayan]

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

International-Space-Station wordmark blue.svg

As many of you know, January 15 is Wikipedia’s 15th Birthday!

People around the world are getting involved in the celebration and have started adding their events on Meta Page. While we are celebrating Wikipedia's birthday, we hope that all projects and affiliates will be able to utilize this celebration to raise awareness of our community's efforts.

Haven’t started planning? Don’t worry, there’s lots of ways to get involved. Here are some ideas:

Everything is linked on the Wikipedia 15 Meta page. You’ll find a set of ten data visualization works that you can show at your events, and a list of all the Wikipedia 15 logos that community members have already designed.

If you have any questions, please contact Zachary McCune or Joe Sutherland.

Thanks and Happy nearly Wikipedia 15!
-The Wikimedia Foundation Communications team

Community Wishlist Survey[baguhin ang batayan]

(Apologies for posting this in English. Translations are very welcome.)

Hi everyone,

The 2015 Community Wishlist Survey is over, and now the Community Tech team's work begins on the top 10 features and fixes.

In November and December 2015, we invited contributors from all Wikimedia projects to submit proposals for what they would like the Community Tech team to work on for the purpose of improving or producing curation and moderation tools for active contributors.

634 people participated in the survey, where they proposed, discussed and voted on 107 ideas. There was a two-week period in November to submit and endorse proposals, followed by two weeks of voting. The top 10 proposals with the most support votes now become the Community Tech team's backlog of projects to evaluate and address.

You can see the whole list with links to all the proposals and Phabricator tickets on this page: 2015 Community Wishlist Survey.

For everybody who proposed, endorsed, discussed, debated and voted in the survey, as well as everyone who said nice things to us recently: thank you very much for coming out and supporting live feature development. We're excited about the work ahead of us. -- DannyH (WMF) (makipag-usap) 22:17, 21 Disyembre 2015 (UTC)

2016 WMF Strategy consultation[baguhin ang batayan]

Please help translate to your language

Hello, all.

The Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) has launched a consultation to help create and prioritize WMF strategy beginning July 2016 and for the 12 to 24 months thereafter. This consultation will be open, on Meta, from 18 January to 26 February, after which the Foundation will also use these ideas to help inform its Annual Plan. (More on our timeline can be found on that Meta page.)

Your input is welcome (and greatly desired) at the Meta discussion, 2016 Strategy/Community consultation.

Apologies for English, where this is posted on a non-English project. We thought it was more important to get the consultation translated as much as possible, and good headway has been made there in some languages. There is still much to do, however! We created m:2016 Strategy/Translations to try to help coordinate what needs translation and what progress is being made. :)

If you have questions, please reach out to me on my talk page or on the strategy consultation's talk page or by email to mdennis@wikimedia.org.

I hope you'll join us! Maggie Dennis via MediaWiki message delivery (makipag-usap) 19:06, 18 Enero 2016 (UTC)
