Invitation to Hubs event: Global Conversation on 2022-03-12 at 13:00 UTC

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hello!

The Movement Strategy and Governance team of the Wikimedia Foundation would like to invite you to the next event about "Regional and Thematic Hubs". The Wikimedia Movement is in the process of understanding what Regional and Thematic Hubs should be. Our workshop in November was a good start (read the report), but we're not finished yet.

Over the last weeks we conducted about 16 interviews with groups working on establishing a Hub in their context (see Hubs Dialogue). These interviews informed a report that will serve as a foundation for discussion on March 12. The report is planned to be published on March 9.

The event will take place on March 12, 13:00 to 16:00 UTC on Zoom. Interpretation will be provided in French, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, and Portuguese. Registration is open, and will close on March 10. Anyone interested in the topic is invited to join us. More information on the event on Meta-wiki.

Next steps: Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) and UCoC Enforcement Guidelines

The Community Affairs Committee of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees would like to thank everyone who participated in the recently concluded community vote on the Enforcement Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC).

The volunteer scrutinizing group has completed the review of the accuracy of the vote and has reported the total number of votes received as 2,283. Out of the 2,283 votes received, a total of 1,338 (58.6%) community members voted for the enforcement guidelines, and a total of 945 (41.4%) community members voted against it. In addition, 658 participants left comments with 77% of the comments written in English.

We recognize and appreciate the passion and commitment that community members have demonstrated in creating a safe and welcoming culture that stops hostile and toxic behavior, supports people targeted by such behavior, and encourages good faith people to be productive on the Wikimedia projects.

Even at this incomplete stage, this is evident in the comments received. While the Enforcement Guidelines did reach a threshold of support necessary for the Board to review, we encouraged voters, regardless of which way they were voting, to provide feedback on the elements of the enforcement guidelines that they felt needed to be changed or fixed, as well as why, in case it seemed advisable to launch a further round of edits that would address community concerns.

Foundation staff who have been reviewing comments have advised us of some of the emerging themes, and as a result we have decided as Community Affairs Committee to ask the Foundation to reconvene the drafting committee and to undertake another community engagement to refine the enforcement guidelines based on the community feedback received from the recently concluded vote.

For clarity, this feedback has been clustered into 4 sections as follows:

  1. To identify the type, purpose, and applicability of the training;
  2. To simplify the language for easier translation and comprehension by non-experts;
  3. To explore the concept of affirmation, including its pros and cons;
  4. To review the conflicting roles of privacy/victim protection and right to be heard.

Other issues may emerge during conversations, and particularly as the draft Enforcement Guidelines evolve, but we see these as the primary areas of concern for voters and are asking staff to facilitate review of these issues. After further engagement, the Foundation should re-run the community vote to evaluate the revamped Enforcement Outline to see if the new document is then ready for its official ratification.

Further, we are aware of the concerns with the note 3.1 in the Universal Code of Conduct Policy. We are directing the Foundation to facilitate a review of this language to ensure that the Policy meets its intended purposes of supporting a safe and inclusive community, without waiting for the planned review of the entire Policy at the end of year.

Again, we thank all who participated, thinking about these critical and difficult challenges and contributing to better approaches across the movement to working together well.

Best,

Rosie

Enabling Section Translation: a new mobile translation experience

Hello Swahili Wikipedians!

Apologies as this message is not in Swahili language, Please help translate to your language.

The WMF Language team is pleased to let you know that we will like to enable the Section translation tool in Swahili Wikipedia. For this, our team will love you to read about the tool and test it so you can:

  • Give us your feedback
  • Ask us questions
  • Tell us how to improve it.

Below is background information about Section translation, why we have chosen your community, and how to test it.

Background information

Content Translation has been a successful tool for editors to create content in their language. More than one million articles have been created across all languages since the tool was released in 2015. The Wikimedia Foundation Language team has improved the translation experience further with the Section Translation. The WMF Language team enabled the early version of the tool in February in Bengali Wikipedia. Through their feedback, the tool was improved and ready for your community to test and help us with feedback to make it better.

Section Translation extends the capabilities of Content Translation to support mobile devices. On mobile, the tool will:

  • Guide you to translate one section at a time in order to expand existing articles or create new ones.
  • Make it easy to transfer knowledge across languages anytime from your mobile device.

Swahili Wikipedia seems an ideal candidate to enjoy this new tool since data shows significant mobile editing activity.

We plan to enable the tool on Swahili Wikipedia in the coming weeks if there are no objections from your community. After it is enabled, we’ll monitor the content created with the tool and process all the feedback. In any case, feel free to raise any concerns or questions you may already have in any of the following formats:

Try the tool

Before the enablement, you can try the current implementation of the tool in our testing instance. Once it is enabled on Swahili Wikipedia, you’ll have access to https://sw.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:ContentTranslation with your mobile device. You can select an article to translate, and machine translation will be provided as a starting point for editors to improve.

Provide feedback

Please provide feedback about Section translation in any of the formats you are most comfortable with. We want to hear about your impressions on:

  • The tool
  • What you think about our plans to enable it
  • Your ideas for improving the tool.

Thanks, and we look forward to your feedback and questions.

Hello Swahili Wikipedians, after coding a small Wikimedia extension Lingua Libre SignIt for Firefox, I could use your help to translate it into Swahili, the largest African language. This extension is still experimental, it aims to help users to use Wikimedia Commons's sign languages videos to learn sign language(s). We would like to add "Swahili to Swahili Sign Language" in the future. To do so, one required step is to translate those 30 short phrases, could you help to translate those here.

We also look for volunteers fluent in Swahili or your local sign language to record videos.

The Vector 2022 skin as the default in two weeks?

 
The slides for our presentation at Wikimania 2022

Hello. I'm writing on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Web team. In two weeks, we would like to make the Vector 2022 skin the default on this wiki.

We have been working on it for the past three years. So far, it has been the default on more than 30 wikis, including sister projects, all accounting for more than 1 billion pageviews per month. On average 87% of active logged-in users of those wikis use Vector 2022.

It would become the default for all logged-out users, and also all logged-in users who currently use Vector legacy. Logged-in users can at any time switch to any other skins. No changes are expected for users of these skins.

About the skin

[Why is a change necessary] The current default skin meets the needs of the readers and editors as these were 13 years ago. Since then, new users have begun using Wikimedia projects. The old Vector doesn't meet their needs.

[Objective] The objective for the new skin is to make the interface more welcoming and comfortable for readers and useful for advanced users. It draws inspiration from previous requests, the Community Wishlist Surveys, and gadgets and scripts. The work helped our code follow the standards and improve all other skins. We reduced PHP code in Wikimedia deployed skins by 75%. The project has also focused on making it easier to support gadgets and use APIs.

[Changes and test results] The skin introduces a series of changes that improve readability and usability. The new skin does not remove any functionality currently available on the Vector skin.

  • The sticky header makes it easier to find tools that editors use often. It decreases scrolling to the top of the page by 16%.
  • The new table of contents makes it easier to navigate to different sections. Readers and editors jumped to different sections of the page 50% more than with the old table of contents. It also looks a bit different on talk pages.
  • The new search bar is easier to find and makes it easier to find the correct search result from the list. This increased the amount of searches started by 30% on the wikis we tested on.
  • The skin does not negatively affect pageviews, edit rates, or account creation. There is evidence of increases in pageviews and account creation across partner communities.

[Try it out] Try out the new skin by going to the appearance tab in your preferences and selecting Vector 2022 from the list of skins.

How can editors change and customize this skin?

It's possible to configure and personalize our changes. We support volunteers who create new gadgets and user scripts. Check out our repository for a list of currently available customizations, or add your own.

Our plan

If no large concerns are raised, we plan on deploying in the week of October 3, 2022. If your community would like to request more time to discuss the changes, hit the button and write to us. We can adjust the calendar.

If you'd like ask our team anything, if you have questions, concerns, or additional thoughts, please ping me here or write on the talk page of the project. We will gladly answer! Also, see our FAQ. Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 04:15, 22 Septemba 2022 (UTC)Reply[jibu]

Update on Vector 2022

 

Hello. I'm sorry for not communicating in your language. I'll be grateful if you translated my message. I'm writing on behalf of the Web team working on the new skin, Vector 2022.

We wanted to apologize for the delays in the deployment of Vector 2022. We know many of you are waiting for this eagerly. We have been delaying the deployment because we have been working on the logos. It has taken us more time than originally expected. Once the logos are ready, we will let you know the exact date of deployment. We are planning for either the next (more likely) or the following week. If your wiki doesn't currently have a localized logo, we encourage you to reach out to us and we can help make one.

Muonekano mpya wa kurasa zetu

Kura

See a translation of this vote section in English here

Tukifungua kurasa za wikipedia yetu, tunaona mpangilio mpya wa maudhui. Mabadiliko hayo yalisababishwa na kundi linalofanya kazi kwa niaba ya Wikimedia. Walitangaza nia yao hapo juu. Kwa bahati mbaya hakuna yeyote wa jumuiya yetu aliyejibu matangazo yao. Wenyewe wanaamini kwamba muonekano huo ni bora kuliko ile ya awali. Wanaamini utaleta wasomaji wapya. Hata hivyo, kila mmoja anaweza kurudisha mwonekano wa awali kwa mtambo anaotumia. Watumiaji wapya hawataelewa kirahisi kwamba wanaweza kuchukua hatua hiyo.

Tumejadiliana kati ya wakabidhi. Wengine walipenda muonekano mpya, wengine hawakuona faida. Tumeona tatizo moja kuwa kurasa zetu za msaada na zenye maelezo jinsi ya kuhariri si sahihi tena zingehitaji kusahihishwa. Hadi sasa hatumwoni mtu atakayefanya kazi hii.

Hatua zifuatazo

Hamjambo,

Tungependa kuomba radhi kwa kuchelewa kuwapa majibu kutoka timu la Wavuti kuhusu suala la ngozi ya Vector 2022 hapa kwenye Wikipedia ya Kiswahili. Tungependa kuthibitisha kuwa tumepokea maoni yenu kwenye ukurasa wetu wa majadiliano yaliyofupishwa na @Kipala yanayojadili ombi la kurejea kwa ngozi uliokuwa. Kwa hatua zitakazofuata, tungetaka kupata usaidizi kutoka jumuiya yenu kwa maamuzi kadhaa.

Tumekuwa tukifanya kazi katika miradi yote ili kubadili ngozi ya Vector 2022. Ngozi ya Vector 2022 inaleta maboresho ya kusonga kutoka ukurasa moja hadi ukurasa mwingine, mpangilio wa tovuti, huongeza vipengele vinavyoendelea kama vile kichwa nata na jedwali la yaliyomo, na hufanya mabadiliko kwenye mtindo wa jumla wa ukurasa. Kwa sasa, ngozi ya Vector 2022 ndiyo chaguomsingi kwenye Wikipedia zaidi ya elfu tatu na itakua chaguomsingi kwenye Wikipedia ya Kiingereza siku ya Jumatano, Januari 18.

Hayo yakisemwa, tungependa pia kuheshimu mahitaji na maombi maalum ya jumuiya ya Wikipedia ya Kiswahili kuzima ngozi. Tungetaka kufafanua kama ugumu kuu ni la kusasaisha nyaraka kwa wahariri wapya. Je, hii ni sahihi?

Tungependa kuwaletea chaguzi tatu tukiendelea mbele:

Chaguo la 1: Kuzima ngozi kwa watumiaji wote hadi nyaraka zisasishwe.

Ingawa hili ni chaguo linalowezekana, tungependa kudokeza kwamba kuzima ngozi kwa watumiaji wote kutaondoa manufaa yake yote kutoka kwa wasomaji wetu na kufanya uzoefu kuwa mbaya zaidi kwa watu wengi wanaosoma Wikipedia ya Kiswahili. Uzoefu wa wasomaji ni muhimu sana kwetu, na ngozi mpya inauboresha kwa kiasi kikubwa - ni rahisi na haraka kusoma na kupata maudhui mapya kwenye kurasa zote, kubadili lugha, kuvinjari ndani ya kurasa, na zaidi. Kubadilisha ngozi kunaweza pia kusababisha mchanganyiko kwa wasomaji wanaotarajia kiolesura kuwa sawa katika Wikipedia tofauti, kwasababu 94% ya Wikipedia tayari wanatumia ngozi ya Vector 2022.

Chaguo 2: Kuzima ngozi kwa watumiaji walioingia katika akaunti hadi kurasa za usaidizi zisasishwe.

Chaguo hili litaturuhusu kuweka kikomo ubadilishaji kwa watumiaji walioingia katika akaunti, ambao ndio wataathiriwa zaidi na mabadiliko katika nyaraka. Watumiaji walioingia akaunti, ambao wangependa kuendelea kutumia ngozi mpya wataweza kuiweka kwa kutumia mapendeleo yao. Pia tutaweza kuweka bendera ili kusaidia watumiaji walioingia katika akaunti na kuwajulisha kuhusu mabadiliko na jinsi ya kurejea kwenye Vector 2022.

Chaguo la 3: Usaidizi wa kutengeneza picha mpya za skrini zinazoakisi ngozi iliyochaguliwa.

Kama hatua zifuatazo tungependa:

  1. Kuanzisha mkutano na jumuiya yenu ili kujadili chaguo zilizo hapo juu na kuwapa fursa ya kuuliza maswali na kuibua wasiwasi kuhusu ngozi mpya. Tungependa pia kujifunza zaidi kuhusu masuala na uhifadhi wa nyaraka na kujadiliana masuluhisho yanayoweza kutokea.
  2. Tunaweza kuhakikisha kuwa mkutano una mkalimani wa Kiswahili ili yeyote anayezungumza Kiswahili au Kiingereza aweze kujiunga.
  3. Tungetaka kuangalia njia ambazo tunaweza kuwapa usaidizi kwa masasisho ya nyaraka zilizopo.

Tunatazamia kuzungumza nawe zaidi juu ya haya mambo. (Translated by RWambua-WMF.) SGrabarczuk (WMF) (majadiliano) 18:30, 2 Februari 2023 (UTC)Reply[jibu]

Maoni kuhusu kundi jipya la "University Students Wikimedians"

Wapendwa,

tumepokea barua kutoka Dumisani Ndubane <dndubane@wikimedia.org> anayehusika na user groups upande wa WMF. Tuliandikiwa kama User Group "Jenga WIkipedia ya Kiswahili". Barua inahusu maoni yetu kuhusu kundi jipya linaloomba kuandikishwa kama user group, kwa jina la "University Students Wikimedians". 

Kundi linalenga "to promote editing of Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects both in Swahili and other languages", pamoja na malengo mengine.

Kwanza naomba pia wengine waangalie pendekezo lao ili tuweze kutoa maoni ya pamoja. Hivyo ninawaandikia wote waliojiandikisha katika ukurasa wetu wa https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Jenga_Wikipedia_ya_Kiswahili.  Natuma ujumbe pia kwa wakabidhi na kuiweka kwenye ukurasa wa Jumuiya.

  1. Mimi naomba sote tuangalie  ukurasa wao huko Meta:University_Students_Wikimedians#Events_and_Projects. Naomba tupitilie hasa sehemu ya  "Events and Projects".
  2.   Kimsingi sina neno kuhusu wanawikipedia kuunda kundi na kujiandikisha; kutambuliwa na Wikimedia Foundation WMF inarahisisha kuomba usaidizi wa WMF kwa ajili ya editathons na kadhalika. Editathon iliyoandaliwa vema ni kitu kizuri.
  3. Lakini  ninaomba tufanye ukaguzi wa miradi na editathons zilizoorodheshwa katika ukurasa wao. Ingekuwa vema kujua kama hizi ni pamoja na editathons zilizosumbua katika miezi iliyopita au la? Na kama ni ndiyo, je makosa na kasoro zilizotokea zimesahihishwa?
  4. Binafsi ningependa kujua pia kama kundi la "Wikimedia Community User Group Tanzania" bado iko au kama kundi jipya linataka kuchukua nafasi yake? Pia ingekuwa vema kujua kama hii ni hasa kundi la Arusha au wako wapi? Na wako tofauti kivipi na kundi al Dar es Salaam (yaani User Group Tanzania).
  5. Mwenzetu Magotech ameanzisha kundi hili. Jana aliandika pia katika kundi la telegram akikaribisha wote kujaza fomu ya maoni iliyopo hapa hapa.

Naomba tukusanye maoni yetu hapa chini; wanaJEnga Wikipedia ya Kiswahili waandike pia hapa.

Binafsi naona ni sawa University Students Wikimedians kusajiliwa kama kundi maana limelenga sana kuwafikia vijana waliopo shuleni na vyuoni. Miradi waliyoifanya hapo nyuma changamoto zake zimetatulika kwa kiasi kikubwa na wameboresha, Nadhani makundi yote yanayo husika na miradi ya wikimedia Tanzania ni vyema kukutana na kujadili ni namna gani ya kushirikiana katika miradi ili kufanya kazi bora zaidi kwa pamoja.

Upande wangu sifurahii kabisa mpango huo. Kama nilivyowahi kusema, naona lengo kubwa mpaka sasa limekuwa kufaidika na mtaji wa Wikimedia (grants). Matukio yaliyofanyika hayakuwa na matunda mazuri sana, pia kwa sababu ya uvivu wa kutafsiri au ujuzi mdogo wa Kiswahili sanifu (ndiyo shida ya kusoma kwa Kiingereza!). Waliojifunza vizuri kutunga kurasa ni wachache, ingawa walitokea wengine safi sana kama Rwebogora. Kweli ndugu Magotech anapenda kufanya kitu, lakini matokeo ni tofauti na matarajio. Labda anadai kufundisha mambo yote kwa mara moja, kwa mfano kurasa ziwe na matini, tanbihi nyingi, jamii, links n.k. Labda kama kutakuwa na udhibiti, la sivyo tutazidi kujaza Wikipedia yetu takataka nyingi. Amani kwenu! --Riccardo Riccioni (majadiliano) 11:40, 30 Desemba 2022 (UTC)Reply[jibu]
Makala nyingi za Editathons za hivi karibuni hata kupitiwa na wakabidhi ni bado. Mimi sina muda wa kufanya hivyo kwa sababu kurasa ni nyingi na makosa ni mengi mno! Msinitegemee kwa hilo! --Riccardo Riccioni (majadiliano) 11:42, 30 Desemba 2022 (UTC)Reply[jibu]
Kwani Mtatiro anaona shida gani kuendelea kutumia Wikimedia Community User Group Tanzania akaendelea kuwa kiongozi badala ya Antoni ambaye kwa sasa ameonekana kushikwa na kazi nyingi? Tunakuwa na groups kibao chini ya mwamvuli mmoja. Hii inaweza kuleta maneno baadaye. Kwa sababu yeye alikuwa mmoja wa waanzishi wa Wikimedia Community User Group Tanzania... Kundi lipo na linaweza kuomba fund kama ishu na fund. Sioni sbabu ya kuwa na makundi tena kutoka kwa watu walewale. Muddyb (majadiliano) 16:41, 30 Desemba 2022 (UTC)Reply[jibu]
Mimi naona anaweza kuendelea kutumia kundi la zamani kwa lengo la vyuo vikuu bila kuanzisha kundi lingine. Shida yake ni pesa na si jina. Malengo ni yaleyale. Kuongeza maudhui, kuboresha kasoro kadhaa, kufundisha na kupanua fikira za watu juu ya Wikipedia. Anaweza kufanya vyote kwa Wikimedia Community User Group Tanzania. Muddyb Mwanaharakati Longa 05:39, 31 Desemba 2022 (UTC)Reply[jibu]
@Muddyb asante kwa ushauri. Hata hivyo ikumbukwe kwa sasa Wikimedia Community User Group Tanzania inafahamika kuendesha events zake mkoani Dar es Salaam, je kwa walio nje wa mkoa husika hawapaswi kushiriki katika miradi ya Wikimedia? Kulingana na Wikimedia wenyewe kila mtu yuko huru kuanzisha makundi haya katika sehemu zenye uhitaji. Binafsi niliona uhitaji huu katika mikoa niliyojikita nayo kwa sasa. MagoTech Tanzania (majadiliano) 08:46, 31 Desemba 2022 (UTC)Reply[jibu]
@Muddyb Kama nilivyoainisha hapo awali lengo hapa si pesa kama usemavyo. Ikumbukwe kundi limeanza kufanya events zake tangu Mei 2021. Kama shida ingekuwa pesa basi tungekaa kimya wala tusingetaka kuweka wazi kwa uwepo wa kundi hili.
Amani kwako ndugu. MagoTech Tanzania (majadiliano) 08:50, 31 Desemba 2022 (UTC)Reply[jibu]
Asante ndugu kwa maoni.
@Riccardo RiccioniLabda niweke wazi juu ya nia na lengo la kuanzisha kundi hili sio kupata mtaji wa Wikimedia (grants) as ulivyoainisha katika maoni yako. Lengo ni kuweka uwazi wa mambo yanayoendelea lakini pia kukuza ushirikiano na jamii zingine za Wikimedia hasa zilizopo Tanzania. Hata hivyo, kutokana na kikao cha wakabidhi kilizofanyika hapo awali juu ya namna ya uendeshaji wa warsha mbalimbali kuna maazimio tuliyaweka na sisi kama kundi tulishaanza kuyatekeleza maazimio hayo ikiwa ni mikakati ya kupambana na uongezwaji wa matini yasiyofaa katika Wikipedia.
Zaidi, tulianzisha program ya kufanya masahihisho (revisions) kwa makala zilizopita na bado hii inaendelea ikiwa lengo ni kurahisisha kazi kwa wakabidhi kwa kuzingatia uchache wao na kazi kubwa iliyopo.
Amani kwako. MagoTech Tanzania (majadiliano) 08:36, 31 Desemba 2022 (UTC)Reply[jibu]
Ndugu, machoni pangu yanabaki maswali mawili: A) Urithi wa editathons ambazo zilileta matokeo yasiyo mazuri. Siwezi kuona kwamba mlifaulu kusafisha tayari. Naona umejitahidi hapo na pale kusahihisha makala na kuiweka katika hali nzuri. Asante sana! Ila nimefanya jaribio sasa hivi. Nilifungua orodha ifuatayo: wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamii:Editathon_2021-06_Morogor. Nimeteua kwa kubahatika makala 15 zifuatazo: 5G, Abdillahi Deria, Afri, Africana (mabaki), Afrika ya Kifaransa Huru, Chama cha Wawindaji wa Kitaifa cha Afrika Mashariki, Chama cha Afrika, Chuma-Afrika, Chuo Kikuu cha Afrika Mashariki, Chuo Kikuu Cha Hope Afrika, Kandake, Hadithi za Afrika, Historia ya Kiafrika, Historia ya kisiasa ya Afrika Mashariki, Jukumu la Ufaransa katika mauaji ya kimbari ya Rwanda. Zote zilundwa kwenye editathon ya Morogoro kwenye mwenzi Juni 2021. Tano kati ya hizo zilikuwa tayari na onyo la "Tafsiri kompyuta". Kwa makala 7 nilipaswa kuongeza onyo hili baada ya kusoma na kukagua. Mbili zilibaki bila onyo la "Tafsiri kompyuta", lakini moja ilikuwa na Kiswahili kibaya mno (nilihisi kwamba asili yake ni google translate lakini siwezi kuithibitisha). Tokeo hili si nzuri.
B) Swali lingine ni hii: unasema kweli kwamba kundi la "Wikimedians Tanzania" hali halisi ni kundi la Dar es Salaam. Naona ingesaidia kama wangejiita hivi lakini hii si shauri langu. Ila sasa unataka kuandikisha kundi kwa jina ambalo ni kubwa zaidi "University Students Wikimedians" - je vyuo vikuu vyote vya dunia??? Ukikaa sehemu fulani na ukitaka kuanzisha kundi huko, basi kwa nini hutumii jina la mahali ulipo? Ili ieleweke?
C) Menginevyo nakumbusha kuhusu azimio la mkutano wa wakabidhi wa 10 Septemba 2022: "Azimio: 3.1. Utaratibu wa Peer review utumike kwa mazoezi ya editahons 3.2. Tunaomba Wikimedia isikubali misaada kwa warsha au editathons zinazuhusu swwiki kama mwandalizi / Kiongozi wa warsha hajaangaliwa kama ana maarifa ya kutosha; lazima ashauriane kwanza na mtumiaji mwenye uzoefu mkubwa anayepitia naye misaada iliyoandaliwa, makosa yanaotokea na kasoro za kawaida.". Halafu wakabidhi waliwahi kuweka sharti ili kwenye editathon penye wachangiaji wapya wote wasihifadhi makala kwenye main space (kama makala) bali kwenye nafasi ya mtumiaji (user space) ya kila mmoja hadi kukaguliwa.

@Kipala asante kwa maoni na kutukumbusha mambo kadhaa.
Naomba kutoa ufafanuzi juu ya maswali uliyoyaibua.
A). Ni kweli hapo awali makali nyingi zilikuwa na shida haswa katika muundo na lugha. Kama nilivyoainisha hapo awali bado tunaendelea na masahihisho (revisions) hayo. Inaweza chukua mda lakini ni matumaini yetu kuwa tutamaliza kazi hii kubwa.
B). Ni kweli kundi likuwa linaundwa kwaajili ya sehemu flani ni vyema likiwa na jina la sehemu husika. tukirudi katika swali kwanini tunaliita University Students Wikimedians, matazamio yetu kama kundi, kundi hili si la Tanzania pekee baali ni ujumuishaji wa wanafunzi wa vyuo kutoka nchi mbalimbali. Tunatambua ukubwa wake na tunatambua itachukua mda kuweza kufikia huku, maana halisi ya kuanzia Mikoa michache ni ili kuweza kutengeneza ufahamu kwanza kwa wazawa ili inapofika wakati wa kushirikisha nchi nyingine wazawa wasiwe nyuma katika hili.
C). Maazimio haya yote tunayazingatia katika warsha zetu kwa sasa. Sisi pamoja na wenzetu wa Arusha tuliunda Jamii (Jamii:Uangalizi) ambayo inajumuisha makala zote zilizoundwa katika kurusa za mtumiaji kwaajili ya uangalizi kabla ya kuzihamisha kwenda kwenye kurasa kuu. Makala nyingi za watumiaji wapya katika warsha zetu kwa sasa hupita huku kabla ya kuhamishiwa kwenye kurasa kuu.
Amani kwako ndugu. MagoTech Tanzania (majadiliano) 16:41, 31 Desemba 2022 (UTC)Reply[jibu]
Ni kweli kwamba kwa sasa tuna kurasa nyingi chini ya uangalizi zenye jina la mtumiaji kabla ya jina la makala. Kama zitafanyiwa kazi mapema itakuwa vizuri. Pamoja na hayo, mimi napendekeza siku zijazo, watumiaji wapya waelekezwe kutumia makala za Simple English kwa sababu mbalimbali: 1) ni muhimu zaidi (hakuna makala nyingi kuhusu mambo madogomadogo na watu wasio maarufu zaidi); 2) tafsiri ni rahisi zaidi; 3) kwa nyongeza, msimamo wa kiitikadi ni wa kati zaidi (si wa kupigania ushoga kama toleo la English). Amani kwenu! --Riccardo Riccioni (majadiliano) 06:42, 1 Januari 2023 (UTC)Reply[jibu]
Malengo ya kupanua wigo wa shughuli za Wikipedia ni mazuri, hongera sana kwa maono hayo, japo mimi sioni haja kubwa ya kufikia wengi kwa mwamvuli tofauti.
A; Nilianza kujifunza na kujitolea shuguli za Wikipedia nikiwa chuo, na tulitumia sana wanachuo mpaka kufikia kukuza kundi la Wikipedia Tanzania, hivyo naamini kuwafikia watu wengi hakuhusiani kabisa na kuundwa kwa jina jipya. Labda kama angeanisha anapata changamoto gani katika kufanya shughuli zinazoendelea chini ya jina la zamani
B; Wikipedia Tanzania sio kundi la Dar es Salaam pekee, ndio maana kukawa na namna ya mawasiliano (kundi sogozi) ambalo humo taarifa na shughuli zote zinaratibiwa humo. Na sina uhakika uendeshaji wa shughuli za WMF zinahitaji mikutano au kazi za ana kwa ana. Tumeona ni jinsi gani hata sasa mikutano mikubwa ya WMF inaendeshwa kwa njia pepe, hivyo kama wanajumuiya wengi wanadhani kundi ni la Dar es salaam pekee la hasha.
C; Je ni kweli kuwepo kwa jina/kundi jipya kutaweza kuwafikia zaidi wanachuo? je tuna uhakika tunapotaka kufanya kundi hili kuwa la kidunia la wanachuo hakuna makundi mengine ambayo wanawafikia wanachuo kwa namna ambayo hatujaifahamu?
D; Mpaka sasa WMF ina jamii za Wikipedia 223, na mgawanyo huo ni umelenga kuwafikia watu wengi kadiri ya tofauti zao kama lugha, nchi nk. sina imani kama kila kipengele kikiwa na kundi lake kutakua na ufanisi, mfano ndani ya kundi la wanafunzi, kuna ambao wanaweza kuja kuomba kuunda la wanachuo wa kike au wa kiume kwa mantiki ya mada zinazowahusu haziguswi kama wanavyoona inaridhisha, na vile vile ndani ya hayo makundi madogo kuna wanaoweza kujigawa kati ya watu wa kusini na kaskazini wakilenga kukutana kwa urahisi, nk.. maana yangu ni kwamba mgawanyo wa makundi kwa lengo la kukidhi matakwa madogo bila kujali dhima kubwa ya WMF sio dawa.
Hivyo sioni umuhimu wa kuwepo na makundi mengi hususani kutoka nchi moja au ukanda mmoja ambao hautakua na mgawanyo unaoleta ugumu katika kuratibu mambo. Heri ya Mwaka Mpya 2023!! Czeus25 Masele (majadiliano) 09:26, 2 Januari 2023 (UTC)Reply[jibu]

Desktop improvements. A new change is coming!

 

(Hello! Please help translate to your language)

Next week (the week of February 6), the Wikimedia Foundation Web team will move some links from the side menu ("sidebar") to a new menu on other side of the screen.

This will make it easier to intuitively use all the links and tools within our interface. The table of contents will also appear a bit higher up the screen because the sidebar will be shorter. The latter change would mostly be interesting for editors. This is because readers use the sidebar much more rarely.

Why we are changing this

The interface does not distinguish between the links and tools that are relevant to the website and the links and tools that are relevant to a single page. Main page, random page, recent changes, are in the first group. What links here, related changes, cite this page, belong to the second one. This mix is confusing to new readers. Also new editors are not familiar with what each link does. Mixing these groups makes it less likely for people to explore these tools naturally.

This change also addresses the concern for the location of the table of contents. Previously, some editors using an earlier version of Vector 2022 told us that because the table of contents appeared below the sidebar, it was placed too much down below the page. After this change, the sidebar will be shorter and thus will shift the table of contents further up in the page. Also, this change will reduce the white space on the page by using more of the space for the display of tools.

Gadgets' compatibility

Technically skilled editors may need to update some gadgets and user scripts. Some of these might become redundant or obsolete. We provide support for users who would like to maintain the compatibility. Please explore this section of our documentation for more information on gadget compatibility.

Automatic citations based on ISBN are broken

Apologies if this message does not reach you in your favorite language. You can help translate it centrally at Meta. Thanks for your help.

We have recently become unable to access the WorldCat API which provided the ability to generate citations using ISBN numbers. The Wikimedia Foundation's Editing team is investigating several options to restore the functionality, but will need to disable ISBN citation generation for now.

This affects citations made with the VisualEditor Automatic tab, and the use of the citoid API in gadgets and user scripts, such as the autofill button on refToolbar. Please note that all the other automatic ways of generating citations, including via URL or DOI, are still available.

You can keep updated on the situation via Phabricator, or by reading the next issues of m:Tech News. If you know of any users or groups who rely heavily on this feature (for instance, someone who has an upcoming editathon), I'd appreciate it if you shared this update with them.

MinT Machine Translation added to Swahili Wikipedia

Hello Swahili Wikipedians!

Apologies as this message is not in your language, ⧼Please help translate⧽ to your language.

The WMF Language team has added another machine translation (MT) system for Content Translation in your Wikipedia called MinT; you can use MinT machine translation when translating Wikipedia articles using the Content Translation tool.

The WMF Language team provides the MinT service. It is hosted in the Wikimedia Foundation Infrastructure with neural machine translation models that other organizations have released with an open-source license. MinT integrates translation based on NLLB-200 and OpusMT and will replace those as separate options.  This MT is set as optional in your Wikipedia. Still, you can choose not to use it by selecting "Start with empty paragraph" from the "Initial Translation" dropdown menu.

Since MinT is hosted in the WMF Infrastructure and the models are open source, it adheres to Wikipedia's policies about attribution of rights, your privacy as a user and brand representation. You can find more information about the MinT Machine translation and the models on this page.

Please note that the use of the MinT MT is not compulsory. However, we would want your community to:

  • use it to improve the quality of the Machine Translation service
  • provide feedback about the service and its quality, and ask questions about this addition.

We trust that introducing this MT is a good support to the Content Translation tool.

Thank you!

Deploying the Phonos in-line audio player to your Wiki

Hello!

Apologies if this message is not in your language, ⧼Please help translate⧽ to your language.

This wiki will soon be able to use the inline audio player implemented by the Phonos extension. This is part of fulfilling a wishlist proposal of providing audio links that play on click.

With the inline audio player, you can add text-to-speech audio snippets to wiki pages by simply using a tag:

<phonos file="audio file" label="Listen"/>

The above tag will show the text next to a speaker icon, and clicking on it will play the audio instantly without taking you to another page. A common example where you can use this feature is in adding pronunciation to words as illustrated on the English Wiktionary below.

{{audio|en|En-uk-English.oga|Audio (UK)}}

Could become:

<phonos file="En-uk-English.oga" label="Audio (UK)"/>

The inline audio player will be available in your wiki in 2 weeks time; in the meantime, we would like you to read about the features and give us feedback or ask questions about it in this talk page.

Hello all,

I am pleased to share the next step in the Universal Code of Conduct work. The Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C) draft charter is now ready for your review.

The Enforcement Guidelines require a Building Committee form to draft a charter that outlines procedures and details for a global committee to be called the Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C). Over the past few months, the U4C Building Committee worked together as a group to discuss and draft the U4C charter. The U4C Building Committee welcomes feedback about the draft charter now through 22 September 2023. After that date, the U4C Building Committee will revise the charter as needed and a community vote will open shortly afterward.

Kwanza, asante kwa kushiriki kwenye utafiti na kwa maoni yako. Tumeyapitia maoni yako na kufanya maamuzi ya awali ya kukushirikisha.

Kwa ufupi, tumesimamisha utafiti hadi hapo baadaye ndani ya mwaka 2024, na tunafikiria kuwa na mfumo mpya wa upokeaji wa maombi ya kiufundi ya jumuiya, ambao tunanuia kuuunganisha kwenye mpango wa kila mwaka wa Shirika la Wikimedia Foundation. Pia tunatazamia kuhusisha wasanidi programu zaidi wa kujitolea katika mchakato wa orodha ya matamanio.

Wakati huo huo, tunapofanyia kazi mfumo mpya wa upokeaji maombi, tunapanga kufanyia kazi mlundikano wa matamanio ambayo hayajafanyiwa kazi hadi mfumo huo mpya utakapokuwa tayari.

Tafadhali soma tangazo hili kwa undani ama kwenye blogu ya Diff au MetaWiki.

Mfumo mpya wa upokeaji wa maombi utahitaji mawazo na ushiriki wako kwa hivyo, tafadhali tushirikishe mawazo yoyote uliyo nayo kwenye kurasa za mazungumzo zilizooneshwa kwenye machapisho ya MetaWiki.

Tunatarajia kusikia kutoka kwako.

Feminism and Folklore 2024

 
Please help translate to your language

Dear Wiki Community,

You are humbly invited to organize the Feminism and Folklore 2024 writing competition from February 1, 2023, to March 31, 2023 on your local Wikipedia. This year, Feminism and Folklore will focus on feminism, women's issues, and gender-focused topics for the project, with a Wiki Loves Folklore gender gap focus and a folk culture theme on Wikipedia.

You can help Wikipedia's coverage of folklore from your area by writing or improving articles about things like folk festivals, folk dances, folk music, women and queer folklore figures, folk game athletes, women in mythology, women warriors in folklore, witches and witch hunting, fairy tales, and more. Users can help create new articles, expand or translate from a generated list of suggested articles.

Organisers are requested to work on the following action items to sign up their communities for the project:

  1. Create a page for the contest on the local wiki.
  2. Set up a campaign on CampWiz tool.
  3. Create the local list and mention the timeline and local and international prizes.
  4. Request local admins for site notice.
  5. Link the local page and the CampWiz link on the meta project page.

This year, the Wiki Loves Folklore Tech Team has introduced two new tools to enhance support for the campaign. These tools include the Article List Generator by Topic and CampWiz. The Article List Generator by Topic enables users to identify articles on the English Wikipedia that are not present in their native language Wikipedia. Users can customize their selection criteria, and the tool will present a table showcasing the missing articles along with suggested titles. Additionally, users have the option to download the list in both CSV and wikitable formats. Notably, the CampWiz tool will be employed for the project for the first time, empowering users to effectively host the project with a jury. Both tools are now available for use in the campaign. Click here to access these tools

Learn more about the contest and prizes on our project page. Feel free to contact us on our meta talk page or by email us if you need any assistance.

We look forward to your immense coordination.

Thank you and Best wishes,

Feminism and Folklore 2024 International Team

A new feature for newcomers: Edit check

Hello!

The Editing Team is building a new feature for the visual editor. It is called Edit Check.

Edit Check is designed to encourage newcomers add citations before publishing new information to an article.

We already observed that newcomers add more sources with this feature, as they learn this concept through Edit check.

We are looking for communities to test the feature. We plan to deploy this feature to your wiki soon.

Only newcomers will be asked to add citations and sources when they add a new paragraph to an article. Other users will not see it.

If you are interested into testing it, let me know! If you have any question, let me know.

We will deploy this feature on Monday. Let me know if you have any question! :) Trizek (WMF) (majadiliano) 09:03, 16 Februari 2024 (UTC)Reply[jibu]
