Jenga Wikipedia ya Kiswahili
Kwa wote wanaopenda kutafakari na kujadiliana nasi namna ya kuendeleza wikipedia hii ya Kiswahili wakabidhi walianzisha kundi la meta:Jenga Wikipedia ya Kiswahili. Unaweza kujiandikisha pale kama umehariri hapa kwa muda wa mwaka moja angalau.
Changamoto ya wahariri wapya, kampeni za kuunda makala
ilhali niko safarini siku hizi nimepita kazi ya wachangiaji wa zoezi la miji ya Tunisia. Nimeona makosa mazito na makala nyingi ambayo ni mbaya. Nimeanza kuzuia wachangiaji wanaorudia kumwaga google translate bila kusoma matokeo yake. Kipimo changu ni, kama Kiswahili hakieleweki, au kichekesho tu (mara kadhaa: mji fulani ilikuwa "raia" wa kirumi..., kwa sababu google translate haijui "civitas" ni nini na wachangiaji hawajali), basi hakusoma anachopakua.
Ninaomba tutafute nafasi ya kushauriana kati ya wakabidhi kwa njia ya mkutano wa google meetup au zoom. Naona idadi ya makala mbaya imeanza kuzidi, na kazi ya kusafisha inazidi. Ninapendekeza kupatana kuhusu hatua ya kusimamisha wachangiaji wanaoopuuza kanuni. Na pia jinsi ya kuongoza wachangiaji wapya wakati wa kampeni hizo wakileta matokeo katika swwiki.
Nikimzuia mtu, namweleza kwamba anaweza kupeleka malalamiko kwenye ukurasa wa jamii. Ninamwomba pia aniandikie kwenye ukurasa wangu wa majadiliano na kusema kama yuko tayari kusahihisha kurasa zake (ambako ningempa mwongozo). Akiandika, nitaondoa zuio. Kama la, basi. Akionyesha anajaribu kusahihisha arudi.
Kuhusu mazoezi ya kutunga makala naona kwanza yaandaliwe vizuri zaidi. Mfano jamii, interwiki, viungo vya ndani vielezwa na kuandaliwa pia. (hapa tumepata miji ya leo ya Tunesia ambayo yamepangwa katika jamii ya kiakiolojia pekee).
Pendekezo : wageni wote wasipakue moja kwa moja. Kila moja aweke makala zake kwenye ukurasa wake mwenyewe, mfano "mtumiaji:Kipala/1/Sousse". Mwisho wa KILA KIPINDI majirani wasome makala za jirani. Waongee kifupi na kuuliza maswali au kudokeza kasoro. Baada ya masahihisho makala yapelekwe kwenye name space kama "Sousse". KAMWE MAPEMA!
- Naunga mkono kabisa! Pendekezo langu ni kuwasaidia kwanza kuzoea baadhi ya mambo, hawawezi kujifunza yote haraka! Watunge mbegu ambazo pengine tumeandaa kielelezo chake. Amani kwa wote! --Riccardo Riccioni (majadiliano) 15:16, 8 Agosti 2021 (UTC)

Discussion tools update
Hello, all. I have good news about the mw:Talk pages project. Please help translate to your language.
- We have finally scheduled the deployment of mw:Talk pages project/Replying, which puts the [reply] button on talk pages. Thank you again for being part of the test that showed the tool was successful. When this change happens, everyone will have the Reply tool turned on. You will be able to turn it off in Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-editing-discussion. You can read more about it at mw:Help:DiscussionTools.
- If you have enabled "Discussion tools" in Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-betafeatures, you will get a new feature. The new feature adds a [subscribe] button to each ==Level 2 section== on a talk page. If you subscribe to the section, then you will get Special:Notifications if someone adds a new comment to that section (but not if they fix typos or edit other parts of the page). This can be very helpful on busy pages, especially if you only want to follow one conversations. Please try it out and share your thoughts at mw:Talk:Talk pages project/Notifications.

Uzoefu wa kuongea kiingereza hauhitajiki kuwa mojawapo ya kigezo ili kuwa mwanakamati.Pale itakapohitajika, msaada wa tafsiri na ufafanuzi utatolewa. Wanakamati watapokea posho kwaajili ya gharama zitakazotokana na ushiriki wao.Posho hizo ni dola za kimarekani 100 (US$100) kila baada ya miezi miwili.
Tunatafuta watu walio na baadhi ya sifa zifuatazo:
- Ajue namna ya kuandika kwa ushirikiano/kwa kushirikiana.(atakayeonesha uzoefu wake kwa vitendo itakuwa ni faida kwake zaidi kuhusu kupata nafasi hii)
- Awe na uwezo kutafuta maelewano
- Ajikite kwenye masuala ya ujumuishwaji na utofauti wa watu
- Awe na ujuzi kuhusiana na uendeshaji wa mijadala na mashauriano na wanajamii

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:
- To identify the type, purpose, and applicability of the training;
- To simplify the language for easier translation and comprehension by non-experts;
- To explore the concept of affirmation, including its pros and cons;
- 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.

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.
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:
- As a reply to this message
- On the project talk page.
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.
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.
PS: Sending your feedback or questions in English is particularly appreciated. But, you can still send them in the language of your choice.
Coming soon: Improvements for templates

Report on Voter Feedback from Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement Guidelines Ratification
The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) project team has completed the analysis of the feedback accompanying the ratification vote on the Universal Code of Conduct Enforcement Guidelines.
Following the completion of the UCoC Enforcement Guidelines Draft in 2022, the guidelines were voted on by the Wikimedian community. Voters cast votes from 137 communities, with the top 9 communities being: English, German, French, Russian, Polish, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Italian Wikipedias, and Meta-wiki.
Those voting had the opportunity to provide comments on the contents of the Draft document. 658 participants left comments. 77% of the comments are written in English. Voters wrote comments in 24 languages with the largest numbers in English (508), German (34), Japanese (28), French (25), and Russian (12).
A report will be sent to the Revision Drafting Committee who will refine the enforcement guidelines based on the community feedback received from the recently concluded vote. A public version of the report is published on Meta-wiki here. The report is available in translated versions on Meta-wiki. Please help translate to your language
Again, we thank all who participated in the vote and discussions. We invite everyone to contribute during the next community discussions. More information about the Universal Code of Conduct and Enforcement Guidelines can be found on Meta-wiki.

Call for help : translate small Wikimedia extension into Swahili (30 phrases)
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.
On the coding side, his web extension code is small so it's a good project for intermediate JS developers to join in.

The Vector 2022 skin as the default in two weeks?
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.
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)
