Problem with translations[edit]

I refer to you because this hapend (few other messages affected to) so i was hoping that you can fix it some how since Siebrand‎ is not very active on translatewiki. I posted thred on translatewiki few months ago but it didnt deleted pages and messages in sr code where deployed few days ago. I know now that i made mistake for putting redirect in pages but this was avoidable just by deleting pages at least the ones that were not made by FuzzyBot. Tnx in advance --Milicevic01 (talk) 18:10, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Why keep enabled[edit]

Limit local uploads in Wuu wikipedia[edit]

Hello! I have added wuuwiki to User:Nemo bis/Unused local uploads. Altho wuuwiki has 300+ files, most of them are not in fair use and can be deleted (if without any copyright info) or moved to Commons. New users often upload pictures locally. I have informed the community.--223.64.209.116 10:13, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi Nemo, I looked at the draft of the blog post and I have totally no clue what it meant (I swear I'm not being humble re:"no clue", I thought it wasn't written in English because it is too technical). So refresh, what do you want us to do again? Siska.Doviana (talk) 06:50, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

Babel fatto[edit]

Per l'errore sui dati che ho proposto, spero si sia capito che ne ero coscientissimo. Sono pur sempre uno sperimentale, quindi per me sondare con delle approssimazione è fisiologico prima di raffinare l'analisi.

Mi piace molto poi essere pignolo, quando le cose procedono, ma purtroppo i dati di Incola non me lo permettono. Per esempio mi ha dato i dati di abbandono solo entro l'anno perché diceva che entro il mese gli sarebbero costati troppo di tempo computazionale. Fa già un gran lavoro, mi accontento di cosa mi ha mandato.

E quella cosa delle fasce orarie lo so che è rozzissima, ma ci impiegava poco a farmela avere.

Ho chiesto cose più raffinate, poi ne parliamo così le puoi migliorare ulteriormente con le dovute correzioni del caso. Io comunque di codice non so una ceppa. Ero un modesto programmatore al liceo (campione scolastico di olimpiadi di informatica in linguaggio... PASCAL) ma l'unica cosa che ho dovuto programmare sul serio nella vita sono sequenze di impulsi elettromagnetici. So un po' di IDL, un po' di MATLAB ma nulla di serio.

Capisco il senso informatico di qualcosa nella accezione etimologica del termine (sono di natura un'organizzatore di informazioni di qualsivoglia tipo) ma i linguaggi li ho masticati pochissimo. Combinazione abbastanza rara.--Alexmar983 (talk) 16:54, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Using only UploadWizard for uploads[edit]

Hi, I'm writing here only to let you known that I've made a reply to your mass-delivery message on pt.wikisource. Unfortunately I've bad experiences from a time that one project decided to use only free content medias from Wikimedia Commons, even if I used to be a sysop on Commons to try to dissolve such issues.

how to get an lb-version of the upload wizard?[edit]

Talk:Terms of use/FAQ on paid contributions without disclosure[edit]

Hi Nemo,

I have replied there and added a qqq translation documentation for unit 55 as you suggested. However:

I know that you vehemently oppose transparency requirements for paid editors as set out by the Board in this amendment - no hard feelings about that, you are fully entitled to this opinion, and the Board gave individual projects the option to opt-out following the amendment. But there is no policy that every translation unit must be accompanied by a qqq documentation, and a personal essay on writing styles is not a sufficient basis for edit-warring with the WMF Legal team over its legal statements ([1],[2]). It's particularly weird here because that FAQ addition addressed your own apparent misunderstanding [3].

Regards, Tbayer (WMF) (talk) 02:34, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for qqq. I have not misunderstood anything, but thanks for worrying. --Nemo 15:31, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Re: Tell us about Vietnamese Wikipedia[edit]

It's impossible to say how many articles have been translated using machine translation. Currently, we have a backlog of 420 articles tagged with {{Chất lượng dịch}}, but often these articles go unnoticed.

Google isn't to blame here. I merely gave Google Translator Toolkit as an example of the kind of tool that isn't yet capable of writing decent Vietnamese without human intervention. In fact, we were seeing such articles years before GTT, before Google Translate even supported Vietnamese. If I remember correctly, some of the first machine-translated articles came from Chinese Wikipedia users who naïvely thought they could write a Vietnamese article by transliterating a Chinese article into Sino-Vietnamese. (That's a bit like taking a French article and translating it word by word using a Latin–English dictionary.)

If I were to guess, the current state of Vietnamese machine translation can be attributed partly to Vietnamese being a zero-marking language, making it rather difficult to perform part of speech tagging. Making things worse, Sino-Vietnamese with its adjective-noun order often appears without warning in the middle of noun-adjective native Vietnamese. But usually it's English homonyms that trip up the machine translator. Google Translate often suggests alternative translations, if you take the time to consider them. However, there definitely are users who paste English wikitext into Google Translate and blindly copy the result. It happens at Translatewiki.net, too, at the push of a button. I'm pretty sure the only long-term solution is this. :^)

plwikisource[edit]

Referring to your question: We want to have default upload link redirected to commons. But we also want possibility of local uploads for advanced users, preferably not only for admins, if possible. For example for "dumb" files/file links sometimes required for technical reasons, but which can be considered on commons "out of scope". What should we do in this case? Ankry (talk) 11:48, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Ankry, then you have to ask your wiki to have an "uploader" group (as ru.wiki does for instance), or keep permissions as they are and just ask $wgUploadNavigationUrl to be set to Commons. --Nemo 12:51, 2 July 2014 (UTC)

Local uploads preferred for ttwiki - local bureaucrat[edit]

Please make sure TatWiki users can continue using and uploading more files under "Fair Use" concept - without explicit permission of the author.

Mi ripristini la possibilità di caricare immagini su wikibooks? Altrimenti non carico più immagini e mi limito a scrivere, anzi riprendo a scrivere quando mi va, ora vado a Wikiquote lì non servono immagini.. :) Si può sempre scegliere, ambedue.

Ho letto il messaggio che hai postato su https://eml.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Bar/2014-1 e ho visto che si è proceduto con la disibilitazione di CARGHÈR UN FILE. Ti scrivo in italiano perché mi hanno detto che sei italiano anche se ci scrivi in inglese. Per favore ripristina la funzione originaria altrimenti non siamo in grado di caricare screeshot di film su COMMONS. A proposito, mi spieghi cosa c'è di sbagliato nelle specifiche che ho associato a questo screenshot? https://eml.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Biches.png

Al limite copiate in toto la gestione dei caricamento file dalla wiki italiana, nessuno si scandalizza se la pagina è scritta in italiano: pian piano la cambieremo traducendola in EML. Non si tratta di non avere la volontà di tradurre CENTINAIA DI TEMPLATES (tieni presente che siamo in 4 o 5 a scrivere qui) ma di mancanza di competenza sul come farlo e mancanza di conoscenza sulle norme che regolano l'attribuzione dei singoli diritti.

Se puoi segnalarci qualcuno in grado di darci una mano, apprezzeremmo molto! Danke schön!--Mirandolese (talk) 16:02, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Ciao, Nemo bis, secondo quanto ci accennasti poco tempo fa riguardo alla necessità di votare il nostro Regolamento-EDP, lo abbiamo votato all'unanimità dei presenti qui i giorni scorsi. Se pensi che questo basti per restituirci la facoltà di Caricare i file, procederete spero in questo senso, altrimenti dovrai dirci quali e quante pagine tradurre dalle corrispondenti anglo/italiane, che nei mesi prossimi provvederemo, anche se credo, a ritmi da bradipi, visti i pochi contributori che siamo là in eml.wkp... Attenderemo tue in merito, grazie, --Gloria sah (talk) 21:41, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

file upload licences issue[edit]

This has reference to your coment at mr-wiki. I was under impression that it will get implemented by some thing around 17th July 14. But it seems that still unimplemented for unknown reasons. In my personal openion The sidebar point to commons:Special:UploadWizard, and local upload rights to sysops is quite OK. As such most of regulalry used parts of commons upload wizard are already translated to Marathi language.

As far as my personal hypothesis goes Indian laws do not provide any allowance for fair use rationale as far as wikipedia usage is concerned; and I was looking for reconfirmation from Indian legal fraternity that has not come through thats why there has been a delay in incorprating an upload wizard at local level.

So presently solution advocated by you seems to be ok enough with a provision to withdraw at a later stage. Alternatively incorporating upload wizard as of commons with Marathi as a default language at local level with provion for sysops to upload fair usage rational files on case to case basis would also be a good idea.

Thanks and Regards

Turning off the "upload file locally" (Alŝuti dosieron loke) link in the Esperanto Wikipedia?[edit]

Hi Nemo_bis. I am Yekrats, an admin in the Esperanto Wikipedia. In June, you posted in the Esperanto Wikipedia a proposal to use only UploadWizard for uploads there. (See eo:Vikipedio:Diskutejo#Using_only_UploadWizard_for_uploads.) The community recently voted to take a step in that direction, and turn off the link at the left side of the page to local uploads. I made a proposal to this effect, which has been unanimously accepted by the community. If this experiment goes well, and people get used to uploading to Commons exclusively, perhaps we can take further steps to turn it off completely.

That being said, can you please direct us as how to turn off that link along our left column?

Thank you kindly for your help and proposal! -- Yekrats (talk) 18:20, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

In last two days I did not get any response, may be busy in their work. If my request is not too technical and if you can handle then that also is ok for me. Alternatively there may be need to up pinging each of ULS team member individually, you may guide us in this respect how to go about.

Your Recent Edit at Requests for comment/Superprotect rights[edit]

Hi. I see that you removed an entire section of the discussion on this RfC page to the Talk Page. I feel that this was unwise, as although the section that you moved was not directly part of the commenting process it clearly showed one strand of thought in this difficult question. Whilst I feel that the idea of closing the RfC was not helpful, it is equally unhelpful for the discussion to be split over further pages. Further, it is entirely unacceptable to mark such an edit as "minor", as you did. Any substantial removal of this kind is not "minor", and it is misleading to describe it as such.

We have a general principle, at least on en.wikipedia, that what is said remains said. I do agree that the comments you moved were not helpful, but once they were made they should have remained as part of the debate, particularly as they led to some interesting feedback from other editors. Please would you revert your edit. Thanks you. RomanSpa (talk) 09:54, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

While I can agree with your comment in general, there is no such rule here and the section is not diminished by being in Talk namespace. Unless the author actually feels offended, it's not useful to make "a case" out of it. --Nemo 10:10, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decitions[edit]

The Wikimedia Foundation recently created a new feature, "superprotect" status. The purpose is to prevent pages from being edited by elected administrators -- but permitting WMF staff to edit them. It has been put to use in only one case: to protect the deployment of the Media Viewer software on German Wikipedia, in defiance of a clear decision of that community to disable the feature by default, unless users decide to enable it.

If you oppose these actions, please add your name to this letter. If you know non-Wikimedians who support our vision for the free sharing of knowledge, and would like to add their names to the list, please ask them to sign an identical version of the letter on change.org.

I'm notifying you because you participated in one of several relevant discussions. -Pete F (talk) 22:16, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Superprotect letter update[edit]

Hi Nemo bis,

Along with more hundreds of others, you recently signed Letter to Wikimedia Foundation: Superprotect and Media Viewer, which I wrote.

Today, we have 562 signatures here on Meta, and another 61 on change.org, for a total of 623 signatures. Volunteers have fully translated it into 16 languages, and begun other translations. This far exceeds my most optimistic hopes about how many might sign the letter -- I would have been pleased to gain 200 siguatures -- but new signatures continue to come.

I believe this is a significant moment for Wikimedia and Wikipedia. Very rarely have I seen large numbers of people from multiple language and project communities speak with a unified voice. As I understand it, we are unified in a desire for the Wikimedia Foundation to respect -- in actions, in addition to words -- the will of the community who has built the Wikimedia projects for the benefit of all humanity. I strongly believe it is possible to innovate and improve our software tools, together with the Wikimedia Foundation. But substantial changes are necessary in order for us to work together smoothly and productively. I believe this letter identifies important actions that will strongly support those changes.

Have you been discussing these issues in your local community? If so, I think we would all appreciate an update (on the letter's talk page) about how those discussions have gone, and what people are saying. If not, please be bold and start a discussoin on your Village Pump, or in any other venue your project uses -- and then leave a summary of what kind of response you get on the letter's talk page.

Finally, what do you think is the right time, and the right way, to deliver this letter? We could set a date, or establish a threshold of signatures. I have some ideas, but am open to suggestions.

Thank you for your engagement on this issue, and please stay in touch. -Pete F (talk) 18:11, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for translating, it's always nice to see more Turkish in Meta. :-) Speaking of which, participation from tr.wiki is still quite low, I'm afraid most people here are not aware of the facts summarised there.

Yeah, this turned out to be a productive debugging session for PWB [4] [5] and always-instructive python hacking. However now I'll have to go out.
On the bright side, messages without an own header are less invasive on talk pages. :) --Nemo 10:49, 12 September 2014 (UTC)


Anyhow, it's disturbing that the undersing does not comply with page history. At least the bot's own undersign should be used with mentioning the sender. Bináris tell me 14:55, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Signatures should be truthful, not "comply with history". The history can be seen... in history. --Nemo 20:11, 12 September 2014 (UTC) P.s.: Moved from section below for clarity.

Use of bot outside of its remit.[edit]

I see that you have been using your bot for message delivery. I don't see that this is mentioned in its intended use, and I would remind you of the purpose of bots, their tasks, and how to extend the scope of the usage of bots Bot policy#Global bots  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:22, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

What remit? I never declared any "remit" for any non-Wikiquote wiki and the usage is consistent with the past. I could have sent the messages from my own account or an alternate, but I didn't want to inflate contributions. I would also have liked to not have the edits flagged as bot, but I don't think it was possible. The edits were trivial and could have been made manually to spend a similar effort or with MassMessage to do them properly, but I chose the harder way because usually people like to see the messengers suffer. :-) --Nemo 20:11, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
You asked for a global bot status at Steward requests/Bot status/2009-10#Global bot status for AnankeBot, and your bot user page describes its bot role. The purpose of global bots is not to be perverted to make thing easier for you to do a task outside of the purpose for which you sought a permission. If you didn't declare a use outside of Wikiquote, then probabnly you should not use it outside of the Wikiquotes without seeking that remit.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:53, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
Fixed: [6]. It's not my fault if the bot flag is applied where I didn't ask for it and a bot flag is not a way for the community to take over my accounts; "make thing easier" is not what happened, see above. Users don't have an unlimited stock of time to fulfill requests for help: if we keep complaining for the sake of it even when they are being accommodating to our personal suggestions, we shouldn't be surprised when they start ignoring the suggestions and just do what they think best.
If you have specific complaints or accusations, please state them clearly so that they can be dealt with; otherwise, if you're here to help me help people, please offer concrete alternatives or comment on those I mentioned above. Lacking either, consider the above my only answer to your next comment on the matter. --Nemo 07:13, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Licenses[edit]

Re: I guess this wiki doesn't have the interest or energies to maintain complex templates and metadata, especially for EDP files. That's not a very nice thing to say. Please change this message. Has it not crossed your minds that some wikis have no problem with licencing misuse on non-free content? I also think that threatening to switch off something within a few days on a wiki should NOT be the default. The status quo should (imho) be the default.

Hebrew wikicommons message[edit]

The following only has two small jokes: When you say 'simply' I added '(tee hee that's my username)'.
The reason for this is that Pashute means Simply...
The second Joke is in you user name which I wrote is Nemo (Federico Levi)
The page will show correctly on the Hebrew wiki, although it will not here in yours. (The missing logo is just one example. Check it on my talk page)
Anyway, here comes (in the next section, I moved up the heading number...) Pashute (talk) 07:11, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the jokes, I wouldn't have noticed them if you hadn't told me. :-) We do indeed not know if our surname used to be "Levi" in 19th century or earlier, but one branch of the family is possibly turning Jew so maybe we'll discover. --Nemo 07:31, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
For some reason the message on my talk page was reverted back to English.
Is there anything you can do to make it Hebrew by all the users. As I explained, the second one is without any jokes.
It works correctly.

אני מתאר לעצמי שלויקי זה אין את העניין או כוחות הנפש לנהל ממשק מסובך של תבניות ומידע נוסף, בוודאי שלא לקבצים עם מגבלות הצגה (קעמ"ה, או: אִי די פי).

על כן אני מציע

כך שלא תידרש כל עבודה חדשה שהיא בויקי זה, ולכל המשתמשים יהיה ממשק העלאה נוח בשפתם הם. כל המשתמשים הרשומים יכולים להעלות קבצים בויקישיתוף.

כל זה יבוצע בסביבות יום ג', ו' בתשרי התשע"ה.

Re from vi.wikt: MediaWiki:Licenses[edit]

Hello Nemo, we responsed your message here: wikt:vi:Thảo luận MediaWiki:Licenses. For added: I am one of those who initiated redirect uploading file to Commons in Vietnamese Wikipedia (you can using Google Translate this page). Unfortunately, this RfC ended without a absolutely decision. Now I'm in the effort to transfer freely files to Commons. Thus, Vietnamese Wikipedia will be only contained non-free images (EDP) which are closely patrolled per resolution of WMF. --minhhuy (talk) 14:50, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, interesting information. Thank you also for updating EDP. viwikibooks is ok with it, right? --Nemo 16:38, 19 September 2014 (UTC)
Many EDP files without permission, license or source currently is in vi.wikibooks. We will help to eliminate them gradually, since we support none-EDP in all projects except Wikipedia. --minhhuy (talk) 18:31, 19 September 2014 (UTC)

Special:Upload in sc.wikipedia[edit]

Ciao, sono un amministratore di sc.wikipedia, e vorrei chiederti se sarebbe possibile riavere il collegamento a sinistra per la pagina Special:Upload e la possibilità di caricare file localmente per tutti gli utenti e, nel caso, come. Ho inserito le licenze e tradotto i template corrispondenti (non ho conoscenze sufficientemente avenzate per farne di molto diversi), manca qualcosa?

iswiki[edit]

Hello. I believe someone has already removed iswiki from the list of those that would be moved over to Commons. Due to copyright laws around buildings for example we can not upload images to Commons that we can upload under the correct license to iswiki so this would only make things harder for us. Thanks for asking. --Stalfur (talk) 23:24, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Yes, indeed it was already done. Thanks for explaining! --Nemo 05:06, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

Fywiki[edit]

Dear Nemo, we members of fywiki have taken our wiki off two separate lists now, that propose to limit the uploading of images to administrators. We really want to keep this feature.

Microfiches[edit]

ciao nemo, tu hai idea di com'è la situazione per le microfiches? l'obiettivo è trasferire immagini attualmente in microfiches su Wikimedia Commons. è più semplice ricominciare da capo (fare foto delle immagini originali) o si possono digitalizzare in modo semplice? te lo chiedo perché il mondo italiano è un'invasione di microfiches e magari ti sei già scontrato con la cosa. certamente partire da microfiches è più fattibile e meglio che manipolare originali di stampe e disegni antichi. ma mi domando se esistono strumenti per rendere la cosa un po' più fattibile e se ha senso. grazie mille. iolanda

Re: "Never ever English Wikipedia first"[edit]

Hi Nemo, thanks for the reminder on the CEP Process page. I'm still in my first few months at the Foundation which have left me inundated with information, so sometimes a reminder is needed (and yes, those are enough examples now). I'm checking the diffs as they come in on the page; with the length of it it's easy to forget about information. Would love some advice on keeping it all in mind if you have any. Thank you! --Rdicerb (WMF) (talk) 06:07, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

OAD[edit]

I gave a little advice to Peter Suber in 2008 when it was being set up, but never actually did any work there.

I was quite active in the OA movement from about 1998/9 when I was biology librarian at Princeton, for about the next 10 years.

Commons / Huwikibooks[edit]

Please undo the change what you talked about here. We didn't asked (and neither we want to see in the future) any unwanted and unasked changes like those which are sadly frequent on Youtube, Facebook, or DeviantArt nowadays. We are conservative people who used to "progress" with their own speed and we think HuWikiBooks project is quite qood without these kind of "developements" and "helps". We don't want every files of ours to automatic uploaded into commons, and one of our most valued editors wants to leave the project because of this. With thanks: Gubbubu (talk) 19:02, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi, I have realized that you have made a change in the Hungarian Wikibooks, which is redirecting the Upload file (hu: Fájlok feltöltése) page to the Commons upload page. I think that nobody asked you for this change and nobody of us wanted it. You have also not consulted nobody of us in advance, and you are also not a contributor to the Hungarian Wikibooks. You may also not have an idea how the Hungarian Wikibooks working. As an editor in Hungarian Wikibooks I can tell you that this change is highly annoying and hindering. A lot of people form outside also sending files to the books I am editing. Have they all know English to upload a file? I think not. For this reason, as the leading Editor in Hungarian Wikibooks I would like to ask you to remove the change, and I also would like to ask you not to make any unsolicited changes in the Hungarian Wikibooks.--Szegedi László (talk) 09:55, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

uploads from German wikiversity[edit]

as you have written about the closing of the uploadfunction on German wikiversity, I write to you, as I guess you take care about problems arising from this migration. Since six year I write my mathematical courses on wikiversity and I also produce pdf-files of the lectures and the tutorial sheets, which were so far uploaded under wikiversity. Since some weeks we (meaning either I myself or my secretary) uploads the files on commons. This has led to a deletion request, see Commons:Deletion_requests/Files_uploaded_by_Mgausmann. It would be nice if you could help me in this matter.--Bocardodarapti (talk) 14:08, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Stop Weing – saying we to seperate (we & us versus you & me)[edit]

(Citation: „Remove needless and harmful sentence due to unclear subject. Who's we? Not all authors are in WMF.“) Thank you, refering to Wikimedia Foundation board manual. Actually it might be useful to think and state what "we" means? - Neverthess. “We”: The Wikimedia Movement (WMM) as an international Community of Indivdual Volunteers (iCIV) shall be we– in coordination with Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) which might be called the we of WMM & WMF together one day. --Edward Steintain (talk) 19:19, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

I'm not a subscriber of organicism, I don't feel a compelling need to have a single definition of "we". We are millions in Wikimedia, so there are billions and billions of possible "we" with all the combinations. Diversity should be embraced, the solution as regards "we" is just to use it carefully (only where its meaning absolutely clear) in a way that doesn't impose one's own identity on the others. --Nemo 19:28, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
People tend to compare. It is “we” and “they”. The wiki-idea has a new task to combine diversity and tolerance leading to something that might be a next step towards truth. A long way for WMM and WMF to go (so far without any structured particapation of the the reader). WMM and WMF are bargaining all alone in a closed shop: Playing an out-of-world-game by we is not you:ϟ --Edward Steintain (talk) 20:02, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Wiki has only started. It needs a RfC (Request for Clarification): The basics have been set. Next wiki needs to go for structured cooperation by tolerance – the use of free knowledge. Why is free knowledge useful? --Edward Steintain (talk) 20:14, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Local Uploads in FaWN[edit]

Why did you limit local uploads in fawn? you're not from foundation right?, we had set a policy so we could use some photos in case of breaking news as {{تصویر خبر فوری}}, exactly like enwn as {{Breaking news image}}, and local community agreed to enable uploads, and so did. what happened? then why wikinews is using different license than wikipedia?  Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 19:04, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

...

[9] No one creates new policy without any discussion unless it's a translation from English version of that project. Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 16:19, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Can you link me to a consensus for zhwikivoyage? [10] Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 01:01, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
And how do you rely on someone's information? Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 01:06, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
@Mjbmr: For zhwikivoyage, see here and here. If these are not enough:
  • Files that published before Jan 1, 1923 are in the Public Domain in the US, but if its author(s) has died not more than 50 anniversaries, then his/her/their files are still copyrighted.
  • Per United States non-acceptance of the rule of the shorter term, files that already in the Public Domain in the Greater China (their copyright years are life + 50 years, except Singapore, which is life + 70 years) will remain copyrighted in the US.
If you're still unclear, ask @Jusjih: is a good idea. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 06:54, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
@Liuxinyu970226: As I remember right after creation of every Persian wiki, we as local community agreed to translate policies from native Project and by native I mean English version of that project. why? 'cause we believed those are WMF policies and won't get our project into trouble, as of Persian Wikinews we talked about enabling local uploads on talk pages and IRC for days then chose to make a poll page, that's why you don't see any discussion of that page, besides meta community has no intelligent of Persian. our community has lost lot's of people due the time and mostly is 'cause of poor economy of our country. @Nemo bis: has even never checked our files, there was only one file of fair use and I've deleted it. besides people have no interest in keeping copyrighted content, and in other side I don't see any copyright relation between Iran and any other country. Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 08:42, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
Thus, phab:T28565#978900. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 03:00, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Mjbmr, I don't understand what's so hard here. Creating a policy needs a discussion, just open a local discussion. The wiki has 46 contributors in total, it can't take much time. To the contrary, discussions in unrelated places like this talk are just a waste of time. --Nemo 08:16, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

I have to translate the policy first. Uploading a local image might be needed once a year. but I'm gonna rely on commons myself. I've seen people's image due to not specifying the right template gets deleted. Mjbmr (discussioncontribs) 16:09, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
Ok. Let us know when you discuss/decide something. --Nemo 16:13, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Ciao Nemo[edit]

Qui ho avviato una discussione che ha generato un entusiasmo senza precedenti nel bar di commons. I molteplici intervenuti però non mi hanno chiarito le idee. Puoi vedere se per il Penn e per le altre istituzioni che sempre più accettano di fornire immagini a strumenti come Wikipedia ma negando il consenso a un utilizzo commerciale si può generare un template tipo il Mibac? Insomma Commons accetta quelle immagini come accetta quelle museali italiane? Sperando in un tuo intervento chiarificatore ti invio gli auguri per uno splendido 2015 anche se in ritardo. baci --Xinstalker (talk) 13:06, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

request from mr wikipedia[edit]

Hi,

Seasons Greetings, at this page on mr-wikipedia we had a brief discussion in july 2014 and decided to suspend local media file uploading for non sysops for a while to bring in awareness and desciplene on file licencing and copyright issues. While those issues are still not completelely sorted out still there we find a need to be flexible and allow file uploading to all from 21st Jan to 7th june; the reason being jan to may month has lot of important days and celebrations regarding Marathi language and May month is school holiday season off line marathi students tend to visit Marathi Wikipedia and upload phographs for photothon . it is emotional connect and some specialy developed android apps are tuned to marthi wikipedia.

So local community wishes we allow local uploading from 21 jan to 7th june. Since I have not started and used to new facility in place of bugzill I will apreciate your support in this respect to file the bug on our behalf

How hard is it to fix the android apps in question? --Nemo 08:11, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

It is about making people used to marathi wikipedia, creating an emotional connect. once those photographs are uploaded through app in a cource of time orgnisors do transfer usefull images to commons also. In any case I am not the app developer and orgnisor of various events events. And all the uploading necessarilly wont be from events or android either. There is no pint in forcing single solution, I suppose.

Bye the way with little effort I could file a bug on phabricator please let me know whom to give follow up so that the things will work as people want.

  • Ok, got no reply on the task either about the apps in question. "Photothon" doesn't find anything, "फोटोथोन" little more. I see one user welcome for the photothon. w:mr:विकिपीडिया:चावडी/इतर चर्चा/जुनी चर्चा १ has instructions which don't include any app. If you link the apps in question, I'll try to fix them.
  • If [11] is what you did: a contest doesn't work well if users have to wait 4 days, are you sure local upload is better? Perhaps you also want to allow any user to upload, as happens in Commons?
  • We can enable uploads, but w:mr:MediaWiki:Licenses is empty. Special:Upload wouldn't really work anyway. According to the instructions above, you only want users to upload self-made photos under free licenses, right? Those images are also allowed on Commons, where cc-by-sa-3.0 is translated. I don't see it yet on mr.wiki.

When you have fixed MediaWiki:Licenses and decided what to do about the 4 days restriction, let us know. --Nemo 11:39, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Ah, I found w:mr:वर्ग:फोटोथोन - २०१२. Is there another category for the other years? This one contains 1300 files, but most of them seem to be copyvios. I'm glad to help cleaning up, as you have a big backlog. --Nemo 13:06, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

SUL announcement translations[edit]

I've updated the general announcement as well as the personal announcement to clarify that users can use Special:GlobalRenameRequest now on their local wikis, as you probably saw I emailed the translators list about getting the strings localized. Would you mind if I followed up with the translators who worked on these messages that you contacted originally, or would you prefer to do it? I'm just fine doing it myself but I don't want to step on your toes and duplicate communication if this is something you are doing/planning on doing. I plan to start notifying accounts to be affected by email and talk pages within the next couple of weeks once legoktm has built the Special page that will expose the users-to-be-renamed table locally for all wikis.

wikisource error with OCR from IA book processed in 2008[edit]

Hello Nemo_bis,

In a help discussion at wikisource your name was provided as a possible IA admin who would give some advice about this book - https://archive.org/details/irishemigrationt00duff - that has errors in processing it for wikisource - the OCR routine at the time -2008- could not handle complex tables that take up almost an entire page. This situation has happened before. Perhaps this may be time to describe the preferred procedure.

https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Wikisource:Scriptorium#Why_no_automatic_ocr_text_layer_.3F

Which of these 2 possible directions would give a better result:

1 - Have an IA admin re-derive the file on IA

OR

2 - add the pdf to IA with different file name and use the subsequently derived files. Note earlier today I added the pdf to IA with a slightly different name - https://archive.org/details/irishemigrationt01duff

Su meta esiste un archivio centralizzato di tutti i sockpuppet individuati a livello locale? mi sembra che sia il blocco che la regolamentazione dei sockpuppet manchi di centralizzazione, ma con il SUL ci sarà pur qualcuno che si è messo a studiare il problema?--Alexmar983 (talk) 00:57, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

appunto è dal 2008 che si sta centralizzando la cosa, il SUL finalization dietro l'angolo (forse sarà postposto ma comunque nell'orizzonte degli eventi), ma ancora oggi le norme per la creazione di sockpuppet leciti non sono omogene fra una wiki e l'altra, e se un sockpuppet viene individuato e magari bloccato su una wiki locale non è chiarissimo se e quando questo venga non dico bloccato ma almeno segnalato su altre wiki. Se un'utenza è cambiata e si è chiaramente dichiarata come erede di un'utenza defunta in locale, non è chiaro dove quest'informazione può essere riportata a livelo globale a beneficio di tutti... Mi sembra tutto ancora un work in progress. --Alexmar983 (talk) 11:25, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
ho capito, ma il blocco è solo una parte della storia, ti ho parlato p.e. di utenze defunte rinate, di sockpuppet leciti etc. Anche nel caso del blocco è abbastanza disorientante p.e. quando il blocco a livello globale non viene comunicato in locale..--Alexmar983 (talk) 12:08, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Re: Wikimedia chapters/Reports/Wikimedia Italia[edit]

Viste le indicazioni generiche ricevute in lista, a seguito di domanda diretta, sto procedendo nel seguente modo, in ordine di priorità:

  • traduzione delle news man mano che escono
  • recupero del backlog delle news
  • traduzione dei bilanci a partire dal più recente

Se, come detto in lista, esistono delle priorità, basta elencarle. Certo è che tradurre a distanza di 2 anni qualcosa, senza avere idea di quale fosse l'idea originale dietro (vista la forte ambiguità della lingua italiana), non è banale. --Baruneju (talk) 16:55, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Re: Sottopagine anonime[edit]

Grazie per la tua proposta di aiuto, ho usato una regex (\d{1,3}\.){3}\d{1,3} per individuare gli IP ma non mi funziona. La query non restituisce nulla. Potresti darmi qualche suggerimento per risolvere il problema? Grazie. --The Polish (talk) 12:53, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Help translating headers[edit]

Hi Nemo, my name is María, I am community liaison for Learning & Evaluation team at Wikimedia Foundation. I write to you because I recently created two sets of pages on Meta, with new templates for navigation, and I need your help to translate the navigation bars. I was wondering if you could help me? How do you write the markup to translate the navbars? The ones I am focusing on are:

Updated scripts[edit]

Hi Nemo bis. I edited your monobook.js to update you to the latest version of ajax sysop, which is compatible with the latest MediaWiki changes and resides on the Wikimedia Tool Labs for easier updates. I also updated deprecated functions and made your scripts HTTPS-compatible. Let me know if anything breaks. :) —Pathoschild 05:39, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

cs.wikiquote: admins keep vandalism/trolling on Main Page for years[edit]

Hi, please revisit the discussion on cs.wikiquote: q:cs:Diskuse_k_Wikicitátům:Hlavní_strana#WMCZ. As proved in the discussion the added text is indeed vandalism/trolling, totally inapproprate for the Main Page of any project, would be legally considered libel/defamation and a civil law delict according to Czech law and many other (not only European) legal systems. The admins User:Danny B. and User:Milda didn′t intervene because both of them are former members of WMCZ who left the organization after its articles of association (bylaw) were changed (they had some personal issues with it) and this is their way to seek "revenge". Both of them should be punished for allowing libel/defamation on the Main Page of WM project for such a long time. --Auvajs (talk) 16:08, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Re: Wikimedia Blog/Drafts/Free knowledge author visits European parliament members[edit]

Letto.. peccato che non abbiamo ancora un blog di wmi per scriverne anche lì. Comunque, quel titolo non mi piace molto; capisco l'enfasi sul definirsi un autore, ma da wikimediano non chiamerei un wikimediano "autore di conoscenza libera" nel parlare ad altri wikimediani. - Laurentius (talk) 09:49, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Hello Nemo, I am looking at your blog post draft, "Free knowledge author visits European parliament members", and wanted to check with you about next steps. We couldn't publish it last week, due to other priorities, but would be happy to give it published this week or the next, if you could update it to include your observations from that weeklong visit. Would you like to do that, then ping me when you are ready for review? Thanks for sharing this important information with our community! Fabrice Florin (WMF) (talk) 18:57, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your help formatting Wiki Loves Monuments evaluation report[edit]

Hi Nemo! Thank you for your help formatting Wiki Loves Monuments evaluation report. I really appreciate an experienced wikipedian reviewing format issues. I write back to you also to let you know I took your advice on semantic titles, but turned it around a bit to fit the design we developed for these reports. You can see the differences here.
Further, I wanted to note that having the references in a closed box (available for expansion) follows the style guideline we developed, for ease of navigation and reading. Each page of the report has a lot of information, and the references usually expand the pages a lot, so we chose to have them like that. I'm sure users will quickly understand the notes are there and be able to find them easily, even if the anchor doesn't work as such. I will, however, look into having the box expanded by default (if that's possible).
Thanks again for helping us out! Don't hesitate to get back to me on my talk page if you have follow up comments on how we can make the reports easy to navigate and read. Cheers, MCruz (WMF) (talk) 20:31, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Un commento su itwiki[edit]

Poso lasciarti un commento al volo? Fino a qualche mesi fa ero abbastanza "ottimista" su itwiki, diciamo che negli ultimi mesi avevo visto una stagnazione "dinamica" dei contributi dove sempre nuove aree emergevano, e alcuni mesi non erano peggio degli analoghi di 12 mesi fa.

Ma nelle ultime due-tre settimana non sono per nulla sereno. Conto almeno quattro utenze attive e competenti che hanno semsso di editare di botto nelle ultime settimane. Per esperienza: sono tante. Metteci pure me, che sono sempre più attratto dagli altri progetti... non che fossi un grande creatore di contributi ma qualcosa ho sempre fatto.

Negli ultimi mesi c'è stata una corsa a recuperare vecchie utenze per i flag avanzati che mi lascia perplesso. Le gente torna per dedicarsi alle scartoffie, più che per creare voci.

Il numero di utenze attive nel mese in corso vedo che sta scendendo.

Qualche utenza nuova brava s'è affacciata lo devo dire, ma è come se percepissi un improvviso "sbilanciamento". Mi sento "pessimista" in qualche modo, quel mio commento sul C.T. come "cavallo di troia" rientra in questa dinamica. Potrebbe essere l'effetto della percezione di un calo dopo alcuni mesi in cui eravamo andati anche meglio delle altre wiki come diferenza percentuale, eppure più ci ripenso più non mi levo di torno questa sensazione, spero di sbagliarmi.

Non vedo l'ora di guardare con attenzione i nuovi dati. Quello che mi preoccupa è che non immagino nessuna soluzione da implementare davvero per prendere in contropiede la situazione se questi ultimi fossero terribili (tipo un calo di due punti percentuali per qualche mese). Ogni carta relativa all'analisi utenze, p.e., sembra ancora poco spendibile. Se chiedessi di spammare un avviso alle utenze inattive e di buon livello (num edit, AV) suggerendo loro di tornare penso mi beccherei un pernacchione in sede di discussione. Forse è la volta che rispolvereremo davvero l'inserimento di voci via bot, ma sono scettico anche su quello, visto che lo rimandiamo da anni. Come rimago scettico sula possibilità di implementare i sistemi di monitoraggio dei nuovi utenti in modo sereno a breve.

Non so, se ci fosse un calo sosetnuto nei prossimi mesi, e Dio non voglia, tu come lo affronteresti? Che strategie si potrebbero giocare che abbiano chance reali di non essere criticate "per il gusto di farlo"? O troviamo il modo di fidelizzare i pochi nuovi che ci sono, o troviamo il modo di far tornare i vecchi che facevano delle voci vere.--Alexmar983 (talk) 00:18, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

quello che sento io è proprio la combinazione di tanti fattori e il grafico che mi hai linkato (carino) me lo sta confermando, nel mese di marzo, che non è ancora stato computato nella tabella generale delle satistiche si è passati da 3250 a 3000 e c'è una chiara tendenza verso il basso. Altra conferma che esattamente come mi aspettavo ci aspetta un calo non da poco, e Aprile è ancora tendenzialmente calante.
ciò che proponi rientra abbastanza in cosa mi aspettavo visto che il margine operativo su itiki si assottiglia, ma fare sondaggi non è reato. In particolare c'è un aspetto da valutare, nel questionario, cioè se l'utente si è sposato su altre piattaforme. Dal punto di vista wiki se chi abbandona itwiki passa a enwiki, o a itwikiquote probabilmente non cambia nulla sul lungo periodo, è solo un campanello d'allarme in più che su itwiki specificatamente qualcosa non va. --Alexmar983 (talk) 07:58, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
non ho dimenticato il picco stagionale, nei limiti del possibile sopratutto comparando che le altri lingue, tanto che a gennaio non ero felice per il segno più in sè ma perché era marcato sopra la media. E lo sentivo che c'era più lavoro che veniva fatto cercando le voci ampliate. Secondo me, a occhio, i dati sono leggermente peggiori di come dovrebbero essere. Quello che dici di wikidata è sensato, ne abbiamo discusso, ma penso che passato il 2014 quello che si doveva spostare si è spostato. Possibile che un miglioramento di leggi sul copyright possa determinare uno spostamento da e per commons, ma lo spostamento da una wiki locale a altre wiki locali è qualcosa di molto più sottile da percepire. Spostarsi p.e. su enwiki/frwiki (le più probabile) causerebbe un calo visibile su itwiki molto più che sulla wiki di arrivo.
Inizio a ragionarci, nel peggiore dei casi se itwiki non da l'assenso a fare un sondaggio lo si può sempre inviare sulla talk meta per i contributori non attivi globalmente da anni, ma con oltre 500-1000 edit, e con la mail attivata. Se anche solo lo 0.1% rispondesse sarebbero numeri significativi. In particolare al sondaggio chiederei se chi se ne è andato è/fosse al corrente di vari cambiamenti introdotti quali VE, wikidata, CT, etc... interessante sarebbe poi notare se a distanza di qualche mese chi ha risposto al sondaggio ha anche ripreso a editare.--Alexmar983 (talk) 08:23, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
ho buttato giù un rigo, vediamo come lo cambi per avere un'idea.--Alexmar983 (talk) 08:45, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Support_collaboration_on_Pashto_Wikipedia[edit]

[12] That is not a duplicate. The old RfC was a user complaint, focused on "homophobia." The underlying situation was far more complex. The new RfC is placed as an RfC, but is really a process page focused on assisting the Pashto community at finding consensus. Please allow this trial of a new process some breathing space.

It will be facilitated toward seeking agreement among Pashto users, because with agreement, they can get things done. No agreement, no admin action, properly. This can actually work, I've seen it.

The old RfC should really be closed. Much to my surprise, there was action. The existing administrators and the 'crat were all removed. This is a very unusual situation. Now, that community needs special support, because it has a substantial active wiki to maintain, and there are language problems. Thanks for your attention. --Abd (talk) 19:45, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Signpost feature about article counts[edit]

As you already know, I've been asked to write up a "detailed summary" of the many issues surrounding Wikimedia article counts for use as a Signpost feature article. It looks like this is the week to have it published (i.e., this Wednesday). Unfortunately, as I work on it, I continue to discover more things I didn't know about article counting. So, I'm wondering whether you (as someone relatively knowledgeable on the subject) could do me a huge favor and read over what I have written so far, and let me know if you find any obvious mistakes or misunderstandings in there. Note that I am still working on it, so it's peppered with notes to myself here and there… - dcljr (talk) 07:58, 26 April 2015 (UTC)
