Editing news n.3-2016[सम्पादयतु]

Sorry for the delay in delivering this newsletter!

Read this in another languageSubscription list for this multilingual newsletter

Did you know?
Did you know that you can easily re-arrange columns and rows in the visual editor?
Screenshot showing a dropdown menu with options for editing the table structure

Select a cell in the column or row that you want to move. Click the arrow at the start of that row or column to open the dropdown menu (shown). Choose either "Move before" or "Move after" to move the column, or "Move above" or "Move below" to move the row.

You can read and help translate the user guide, which has more information about how to use the visual editor.

Since the last newsletter, the VisualEditor Team has mainly worked on a new wikitext editor. They have also released some small features and the new map editing tool. Their workboard is available in Phabricator. You can find links to the list of work finished each week at mw:VisualEditor/Weekly triage meetings. Their current priorities are fixing bugs, releasing the 2017 wikitext editor as a beta feature, and improving language support.

Recent changes[सम्पादयतु]

  • You can now set text as small or big.[१]
  • Invisible templates have been shown as a puzzle icon. Now, the name of the invisible template is displayed next to the puzzle icon.[२] A similar feature will display the first part of hidden HTML comments.[३]
  • Categories are displayed at the bottom of each page. If you click on the categories, the dialog for editing categories will open.[४]
  • At many wikis, you can now add maps to pages. Go to the Insert menu and choose the "Maps" item. The Discovery department is adding more features to this area, like geoshapes. You can read more at mediawiki.org.[५]
  • The "Save" button now says "Save page" when you create a page, and "Save changes" when you change an existing page.[६] In the future, the "पृष्ठं रक्ष्यताम्" button will say "पृष्ठं प्रकाश्यताम्". This will affect both the visual and wikitext editing systems. More information is available on Meta.
  • Image galleries now use a visual mode for editing. You can see thumbnails of the images, add new files, remove unwanted images, rearrange the images by dragging and dropping, and add captions for each image. Use the "Options" tab to set the gallery's display mode, image sizes, and add a title for the gallery.[७]

Future changes[सम्पादयतु]

The visual editor will be offered to all editors at the remaining 10 "Phase 6" Wikipedias during the next month. The developers want to know whether typing in your language feels natural in the visual editor. Please post your comments and the language(s) that you tested at the feedback thread on mediawiki.org. This will affect several languages, including Thai, Burmese and Aramaic.

The team is working on a modern wikitext editor. The 2017 wikitext editor will look like the visual editor and be able to use the citoid service and other modern tools. This new editing system may become available as a Beta Feature on desktop devices in October 2016. You can read about this project in a general status update on the Wikimedia mailing list.

Password reset[सम्पादयतु]

I apologise that this message is in English. ⧼Centralnotice-shared-help-translate⧽

We are having a problem with attackers taking over wiki accounts with privileged user rights (for example, admins, bureaucrats, oversighters, checkusers). It appears that this may be because of weak or reused passwords.

Community members are working along with members of multiple teams at the Wikimedia Foundation to address this issue.

In the meantime, we ask that everyone takes a look at the passwords they have chosen for their wiki accounts. If you know that you've chosen a weak password, or if you've chosen a password that you are using somewhere else, please change those passwords.

Select strong passwords – eight or more characters long, and containing letters, numbers, and punctuation. Joe Sutherland (सम्भाषणम्) / MediaWiki message delivery (चर्चा) २३:५९, १३ नवम्बर २०१६ (UTC)

Review of initial updates on Wikimedia movement strategy process[सम्पादयतु]

Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English. Message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

The Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout 2017. For 15 years, Wikimedians have worked together to build the largest free knowledge resource in human history. During this time, we've grown from a small group of editors to a diverse network of editors, developers, affiliates, readers, donors, and partners. Today, we are more than a group of websites. We are a movement rooted in values and a powerful vision: all knowledge for all people. As a movement, we have an opportunity to decide where we go from here.

This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve. We hope to design an inclusive process that makes space for everyone: editors, community leaders, affiliates, developers, readers, donors, technology platforms, institutional partners, and people we have yet to reach. There will be multiple ways to participate including on-wiki, in private spaces, and in-person meetings. You are warmly invited to join and make your voice heard.

The immediate goal is to have a strategic direction by Wikimania 2017 to help frame a discussion on how we work together toward that strategic direction.

Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list, and posted on Meta-Wiki. Beginning with this message, monthly reviews of these updates will be sent to this page as well. Sign up to receive future announcements and monthly highlights of strategy updates on your user talk page.

Here is a review of the updates that have been sent so far:

IST समयवलयस्य स्थापनम्[सम्पादयतु]

नमः सर्वेभ्यः अस्माकं प्रकल्पे भारतीयकालमानस्य आवश्यकतात्वात् मया अत्र मत्कुणः स्थापितः अस्ति। कृपया स्वमतं अत्र दत्त्वा एतस्य कार्यस्य पूर्णतायै योगदानं ददातु। अस्तु। ॐNehalDaveND ०७:२९, १५ मार्च २०१७ (UTC)

मैं संस्कृत नहीं में दक्षता नहीं रखता अतः हिन्दी में मेरा प्रश्न कर रहा हूँ। Nehal जी, आप ऐसा क्यों चाहते हैं? क्या आप चाहते हैं कि भारत के बाहर का कोई व्यक्ति संस्कृत विकिपीडिया को सम्पादित न करे? क्या आप चाहते हैं कि यह प्रकल्प केवल व्यक्तिगत विकि की तरह कार्य करे?☆★संजीव कुमार: (✉✉) १९:१६, १५ मार्च २०१७ (UTC)
अत्र विषयः व्यक्तिगतः नास्ति। संस्कृतविकिपीडिया-जाले भारतीयकालवलयस्य (IST) आवश्यकता अस्ति। वयं तु उभयम् अपि इच्छामः। भारतीयकालवलयेन सह अन्ताराष्ट्रियकालवलयः (UTC) अपि चेत्, अस्माकं कृते तु उत्तमम्। परन्तु यदा फलकम्:LocalTime इत्यस्य उपयोगं कुर्मः, तदा स्थानीयः कालः प्रदर्शयेदेव। एवं वयं यत्र भारतीयकालवलयस्य आवश्यकता अस्ति, तत्र तस्य उपयोगं कर्तुं शक्नुमः। अस्तु। ॐNehalDaveND ०३:५०, १६ मार्च २०१७ (UTC)
संस्कृतविकिपीडिया-जाले भारतीयकालवलयस्य (IST) आवश्यकता अस्ति। क्या आवश्यकता है ? थोड़ा विस्तार से बतायेंगे ?--SM7--talk-- ०६:४८, १७ मार्च २०१७ (UTC)
भारतीयकालवलयस्य मुखपृष्ठे, परियोजनासु, सम्पादनोत्सवेषु च प्रयोगः करणीयः अस्ति। यथा UTC इत्यस्य प्रचलम् अस्ति, तथैव IST इत्यस्य प्रचलनं किमर्थं न भवेत्? यदि UTC एवं पर्याप्तम् अभविष्यत्, तर्हि IST इत्यस्य कावश्यकता? भारतीयकालवलयस्य उपयोगः भारते तु भवेत् खलु! ॐNehalDaveND ०७:५६, १७ मार्च २०१७ (UTC)
क्या यह परियोजना केवल भारत के लिए है? और आप उत्तर देने के बजाय प्रश्न पूछ रहे हैं। आवश्यकता स्पष्ट करें, जिसे आधार बना कर आप यह बदलाव करना चाहते हैं। --SM7--talk-- ०८:०५, १७ मार्च २०१७ (UTC)
आवश्यकता अर्थात् जहाँ भी (परियोजना, सम्पादनोत्सवः, गोष्ठीसमयः, कार्यशालासमयः, मुखपृष्ठसमयः, चर्चायां उल्लेखः इत्यादिषु) कोई भी संस्कृत विकिपीडिया का व्यक्ति भारतीय काल वलय का उपयोग करना चाहें करें ऐसी व्यवस्था करना। जैसे UTC के उपयोग में स्वतन्त्रता है वैसे ही IST के उपयोग में भी स्वतन्त्रता हो। ऐसा नहीं कि केवल UTC का ही उपयोग कर सकते हैं। हमें हो सके तो दोनों वलय (UTC, IST) चाहिये। परन्तु यदि दोनों में से एक ही हो सकता है, तो भारतीयकालवलय ही चाहिये। उक्त आवश्यकता के कारण। क्या भारत में ही सम्पादन होगा या क्या ये व्यक्तिगत जाल है या क्या संस्कृत भारत के बाहर नहीं हैं इत्यादि प्रश्नों का उत्तर यह है कि, वैश्विकस्तर का तर्क दे कर स्थानीयकरण की अवगणना नहीं की जा सकती। विकिपीडिया वैश्विक जालस्थान है परन्तु अधिकप्रयोक्ता भारतीयकालवलय का ही प्रयोग करते हैं। जैसे UTC जिनको नहीं आता वें उसके अनुपात में स्थानीय समय निर्धारित करते हैं। वैसे ही स्थानीय समय को देख कर UTC समय का ज्ञान भी हो सकता है। बहार से आने वाले 5 लोगों की सुविधा के लिये स्थानीय 95 लोगों की अवगणना नहीं की जा सकती। ॐNehalDaveND १०:०२, १७ मार्च २०१७ (UTC)
नेहल जी, दोनों समय प्रदर्शित करने की व्यवस्था पहले से मौजूद है और २-३ वर्ष पहले मैंने हिन्दी विकिपीडिया पर इसको काम में लिया है। आप उसके लिए प्रयास किजिये। पूरा समय बदलवाना सही नहीं लगता।☆★संजीव कुमार: (✉✉) १९:०३, १७ मार्च २०१७ (UTC)
मैं एक बालक जैसा हूँ जो वस्तु चाहिये वो चाहिये ही। परन्तु ये बालक इतना समझता है कि, यदि दो वस्तुएं मिलती हो, तो एक वस्तु की मांग नहीं करनी चाहिये। यदि दोनों हो रहे हैं, तो मैं ये आवेदन वापस ले लूंगा। परन्तु कृपया आप मार्गदर्शन करें कि, ये दोनों कालवलयों का संस्कृत में उपयोग कैसे किया जा सकता है। यदि आपके इस भगीरथ कार्य में प्रबन्धक के रूप में मैं कुछ सहायता कर सकूँ या सम्पूर्ण कार्य में कर सकूँ तो मुझे आनन्द होगा। अस्तु। ॐNehalDaveND ०३:२९, १८ मार्च २०१७ (UTC)
आप प्रबन्धक हैं। अपनी बालत्व की भावना और अभीप्साओं को लागू कराने मात्र के लिए "आवश्यकतायें" न निर्मित करें। --SM7--talk-- ०८:०३, १८ मार्च २०१७ (UTC)
आवश्यकता है अतः लागू करना है। परन्तु यदि दोनों हो जाता है तो और अच्छा होगा। जब जिसकी आवश्यकता हुई उपयोग कर लिया करेंगे। अभीप्सा से आवश्यकता का जन्म नहीं होता। आवश्यकता होती है, तो उसे पूर्ण करने की अभीप्सा जन्म लेती है। अन्तिम फल IST के उपयोग की स्वतन्त्रता हो। अस्तु। ॐNehalDaveND ११:२०, १८ मार्च २०१७ (UTC)
नेहल जी, आप यहाँ देखो, मुझे और SM7 जी (हालांकि हम यहाँ सक्रिय नहीं हैं) को इसकी आवश्यकता महसूस नहीं होती बल्कि आपको महसूस हो रही है। हम तीनों लोग एक ही समयक्षेत्र के लोग हैं अतः आपको भी अपने निर्णय पर पुनः विचार करना चाहिए। जैसा SM7 जी ने कहा, मुझे भी यह एक जल्दबाजी और बचपने वाला कार्य प्रतीत हो रहा है। भाषा को अपने समयक्षेत्र में समेटने का प्रयास न करें।☆★संजीव कुमार: (✉✉) १३:४०, १९ मार्च २०१७ (UTC)
दीर्घ चर्चा हो गई, आवश्यकता और अनावश्यकता की। अब जब दोनों (IST - UTC) हो ही रहा है, तो सब सही होगा। कृपया आप बताएँ दोनों वलयों को संस्कृत विकिपीडिया पर लागू कैसे कर सकता हूँ? ये हो गया तो समझो समस्या का समधान भी हो गया। ॐNehalDaveND १४:०६, १९ मार्च २०१७ (UTC)
मुझे यह नहीं समझ में आ रहा कि "समस्या" कहाँ है? यदि आप भारतीय समय देखना चाहते या कोई भी देखना चाहता तो अपने Preferences में यह चुन सकता है। यह पहले से ही उपलब्ध है। क्या आप इसका उपयोग नहीं कर पा रहे? और जहाँ तक आवश्यकता की बात है आप अभी तक कोई स्पष्ट आवश्यकता नहीं बता रहे। --SM7--talk-- १८:३८, १९ मार्च २०१७ (UTC)
आप दोनों बात को कहाँ ले जाना चाहते हैं मैं समझ नहीं पा रहा हूँ। इष्टतमानि में जो काल है उसकी बात है ही नहीं। १४:१४ के उपयोग करने पर भी स्थानीय समय अर्थात् भारतीय समय दिख नहीं रहा इसके विषय में बात हो रही है। यदि इस कोड (१४:१४) का उपयोग करने से भारतीय काल दिखे या किसी अन्य कोड का उपयोग करने से भारतीय काल दिखे ये चाहिये। इस में बात लम्बी लम्बी खिचना नहीं है। आवश्यकता, अनावश्यकता इत्यादि बार बार इङ्गित करने से अावश्यकता अनावश्यकता में परिवर्तित नहीं हो जायेगी। अब फिर से में सिधा सरल कह रहा हूँ - {{LOCALTIME}} ये उपयोग करने से भारतीय काल दिखे या ऐसा कोई दुसरा {{INDIANTIME}} कोड उपयोग करने से भारतीय काल दिखे ऐसा कोई मार्ग है तो बताईए। ॐNehalDaveND १२:४५, २० मार्च २०१७ (UTC)
नेहल जी अभी क्या स्थिति है ? आपकी समस्या का निवारण हुआ या इस फैब टास्क को आप ज़ारी रखने वाले हैं ?--SM7--talk-- १८:०७, २४ मार्च २०१७ (UTC)
धन्यवाद महोदय समाधान हो गया है। अब उस फेब. कार्य को आगे नहीं ले जाया जायेगा। धन्यवाद। ॐNehalDaveND ०३:२०, २५ मार्च २०१७ (UTC)

Start of the 2017 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees elections[सम्पादयतु]

Please accept our apologies for cross-posting this message. This message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

Wikimedia-logo black.svg

On behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee, I am pleased to announce that self-nominations are being accepted for the 2017 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees Elections.

The Board of Trustees (Board) is the decision-making body that is ultimately responsible for the long-term sustainability of the Wikimedia Foundation, so we value wide input into its selection. More information about this role can be found on Meta-Wiki. Please read the letter from the Board of Trustees calling for candidates.

The candidacy submission phase will last from April 7 (00:00 UTC) to April 20 (23:59 UTC).

We will also be accepting questions to ask the candidates from April 7 to April 20. You can submit your questions on Meta-Wiki.

Once the questions submission period has ended on April 20, the Elections Committee will then collate the questions for the candidates to respond to beginning on April 21.

The goal of this process is to fill the three community-selected seats on the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. The election results will be used by the Board itself to select its new members.

The full schedule for the Board elections is as follows. All dates are inclusive, that is, from the beginning of the first day (UTC) to the end of the last.

  • April 7 (00:00 UTC) – April 20 (23:59 UTC) – Board nominations
  • April 7 – April 20 – Board candidates questions submission period
  • April 21 – April 30 – Board candidates answer questions
  • May 1 – May 14 – Board voting period
  • May 15–19 – Board vote checking
  • May 20 – Board result announcement goal

In addition to the Board elections, we will also soon be holding elections for the following roles:

  • Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC)
    • There are five positions being filled. More information about this election will be available on Meta-Wiki.
  • Funds Dissemination Committee Ombudsperson (Ombuds)
    • One position is being filled. More information about this election will be available on Meta-Wiki.

Please note that this year the Board of Trustees elections will be held before the FDC and Ombuds elections. Candidates who are not elected to the Board are explicitly permitted and encouraged to submit themselves as candidates to the FDC or Ombuds positions after the results of the Board elections are announced.

More information on this year's elections can be found on Meta-Wiki. Any questions related to the election can be posted on the election talk page on Meta-Wiki, or sent to the election committee's mailing list, board-elections(at)wikimedia.org.

On behalf of the Election Committee,
Katie Chan, Chair, Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee

Wikidata description editing in the Wikipedia Android app[सम्पादयतु]

Wikidata description editing is a new experiment being rolled out on the Wikipedia app for Android. While this primarily impacts Wikidata, the changes are also addressing a concern about the mobile versions of Wikipedia, so that mobile users will be able to edit directly the descriptions shown under the title of the page and in the search results.

We began by rolling out this feature several weeks ago to a pilot group of Wikipedias (Russian, Hebrew, and Catalan), and have seen very positive results including numerous quality contributions in the form of new and updated descriptions, and a low rate of vandalism.

We are now ready for the next phase of rolling out this feature, which is to enable it in a few days for all Wikipedias except the top ten by usage within the app (i.e. except English, German, Italian, French, Spanish, Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese, Turkish, and Chinese). We will enable the feature for those languages instead at some point in the future, as we closely monitor user engagement with our expanded set of pilot communities. As always, if have any concerns, please reach out to us on wiki at the talk page for this project or by email at reading@wikimedia.org. Thanks!

WikiProject Turkey 2017[सम्पादयतु]

Dear friends,

In an unfortunate turn of events, Wikipedia is currently blocked in Turkey, as can be seen from en: 2017 block of Wikipedia in Turkey

In order to express solidarity with the Turkish Wikipedia editors and readers, it is proposed that Indian Wikipedians write articles related to Turkey in their respective languages. Our message is clear — we are not motivated by any politics; we just want the Wikipedia to be unblocked in Turkey.

Participating members can create new articles on Turkish language, culture, political structure, religion, sports, etc. But the essential condition is that the articles should be related to Turkey.

Note: The normal Wikipedia rules also apply to all new articles. Wikipedia admins can facilitate other member contributions by creating project pages where users can list their newly written articles. --Hindustanilanguage (चर्चा) १९:३१, ३० अप्रैल २०१७ (UTC)

Prototype for editing Wikidata infoboxes on Wikipedia[सम्पादयतु]


I’m sorry for writing in English. It’d be great if someone could translate this message if necessary.

One of the most requested features for Wikidata is to enable editing of Wikidata’s data directly from Wikipedia, so the editors can continue their workflow without switching websites.

The Wikidata development team has been working on a tool to achieve this goal: fill and edit the Wikipedia infoboxes with information from Wikidata, directly on Wikipedia, via the Visual Editor.

We already asked for feedback in 2015, and collected some interesting ideas which we shared with you in this thesis. Now we would like to present to you our first prototype and collect your feedback, in order to improve and continue the development of this feature.

We present this work to you very early, so we can include your feedback before and all along the development. You are the core users of this feature, so we want to make sure that it fits your needs and editing processes.

You will find the prototype, description of the features, and a demo video, on this page. Feel free to add any comment or feedback on the talk page. The page is currently not translated in every languages, but you can add your contribution by helping to translate it.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to follow all the discussions on Wikipedia, so if you want to be sure that your feedback is read, please add it on the Wikidata page, in your favorite language. Thanks for your understanding.

Thanks, Lea Lacroix (WMDE)

Could you please describe what specific task/s you want to accomplish with this bot? MikeLynch (चर्चा) ११:२५, २४ अगस्त २०१७ (UTC)

@MikeLynch:! other wikipedias have bot for different purpose so in future the bot usage may go vast. But now I have three kinds of works.
  1. Common errors. - महत्त्वम् is the proper word but mostly people write महत्वम्। Before bot knowledge I was doing this manually. But after MWT I came to know about these kinds of bots. I have also made list for this.
  2. Common Works - You can see in sa.wiki most of pages have so many problems. Like absence of reference, external links and dead ends. I want to categorize and improve those articles.
  3. Double redirects, template work, images, link related problems etc also can be found in sa.wiki and like other wikipedias we also can manage it by bot.

Please describe exactly what the bot does on the userpage of the bot, with as many details as possible, and update it as you add more functionalities. You should keep in mind the general guidelines as written in en:Wikipedia:Creating_a_bot#Overview_of_the_process_of_developing_a_bot. You should realise that automating tasks can go horribly wrong, so it is a huge responsibility (and you as the bot owner take full responsibility for its edits).

And also, if possible, and preferably, you could make your code open source and keep it well documented. MikeLynch (चर्चा) १५:१५, २८ अगस्त २०१७ (UTC)
@MikeLynch:! I have read that guideline and after that only I came to you. As you told me to give more details, but firstly I will make that word correction bot. About that you can see this link. I have read bot responsibilities and result of harm. I will not do a single work without two or more experienced Wikipedian's (Bot Users) suggestion. Secondly my all code will be open. Moreover I always discuss with community and after that only bot job will be done. Thank you. ॐNehalDaveND ०४:३६, ३० अगस्त २०१७ (UTC)
Done. MikeLynch (चर्चा) ०८:३८, १३ सितम्बर २०१७ (UTC)
Thank you SO much. ॐNehalDaveND ०८:४१, १३ सितम्बर २०१७ (UTC)

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

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

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

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