Bashkir Wikipedia[edit]

  • Good evening! According to the contest "Wiki loves the Caucasus." I can’t get a list for this contest. Give a list of objects in Russian. For example, I do not speak English, and even more so the languages of the peoples of the Caucasus. And I would like to participate … Аҡҡашҡа (talk) 10:42, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

Africain Wikipedia Month[edit]

Good morning to you,

I would like a new tool to be created for the "African Wikipedia Month".

Thank you & Regards, Aabbccddeeffabcdef (talk) 10:14, 9 April 2019 (UTC), the Aabbccddeeffabcdef (talk) 10:14, 9 April 2019 (UTC).

  1. Which language editions the contest will take place in?.
  2. What's the editathon's name in each of those languages?
  3. What is the exact start/end time? (UTC)
  4. Who are the jury members?
    [[User:]]
  5. Is there any template to add to the talkpage after the article is submitted? Does it have any parameters?
  6. What is the marks' system? In WAM it was 'accepted/not accepted', but you can also have additional points or penalty points.
  7. What is the minimum requirement for an article? Usually contests have something like “2000 bytes and 250 words, excluding references and templates”.
Hello,
In French. It’s called “Mois africain Wikipédia (Mai) 2019”. It starts May 1 at 0h00min0s and ends May 31 at 23h59min59s. For the moment, the jury has not yet been declared. There are still candidates on w:fr:DW:Mois africain Wikipédia/2019/Jury. No, there is no template. The user himself will submit in the tool. It’s one point per juror. Penalty points are a good idea. An item must have at least 3000 characters and 300 words (visible).
Thank you & best wishes, 12:12, 10 April 2019 (UTC)~.
Aabbccddeeffabcdef, could you please be more precise about the points? Currently the overall mark is calculated as the average mark of all the jury members (let's say, I put 1 point, you put 2 points; that would be 1.5 total). Would you like the jury to be able to give either 0 points or 1 point, or something else? For example: jury members can give an article 1—5 marks for the overall impression and deduct up to 3 marks for problems such as short size, lack of references etc. Le Loy 01:16, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
The idea of points 1 to 5 seems to me correct, I will talk about it on the discussion page. Answer on Wednesday at the most.
Sincerely, Aabbccddeeffabcdef (talk), the 08:23, 15 April 2019 (UTC).
Hello Template:Mention,
For the points, each juror will put between 1 and 3 point(s). I hope this is possible to program.
Sincerely, Aabbccddeeffabcdef (talk), the 16:01, 17 April 2019 (UTC).
  • Hi Aabbccddeeffabcdef, here's the editathon: https://tools.wmflabs.org/fountain/editathons/mois-africain-2019-fr You are the only jury member now, let me know who should I add. The marking system is 1 to 5 points, individual juries' points are averaged (1 + 3 + 2 = 2 total). Only the newly created pages are accepted, and the creators must add it themselves. No template is added automatically. If you need anything changed, I'd gladly do it :-) Le Loy 03:35, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
Good morning, Ле Лой,
We decided that it would be 1 to 3 points, and for the other jurors, we have to wait until 25 April 00am.
Thanks for the tool,
Sincerely, Aabbccddeeffabcdef (talk), the 06:47, 21 April 2019 (UTC).
Welcome back Ле Лой,
We should also take into account that it is not necessarily the creator of the page that submits it, and that we can submit a page if it was draft on May 1st 00h00m00s.
Thanks for the corrections,
Sincerely, Aabbccddeeffabcdef (talk), the 09:23, 21 April 2019 (UTC).
Good morning Ле Лой,
This is the users of the jury :
  1. Binabik
  2. Paul.schrepfer
  3. Pierre André Leclercq
  4. Aabbccddeeffabcdef
  5. Adoscam
  6. Théo SOLIGNY
  7. BamLifa
  8. Alexmart
  9. Aboubacarkhoora
Thanks, Aabbccddeeffabcdef (talk), the 08:23, 25 April 2019 (UTC).
Good morning Ле Лой,
The “Mois africain Wikipédia 2019” will start in 3 days ! Please refresh jury members !
Thanks & Sincerely, Aabbccddeeffabcdef (talk), the 09:27, 28 April 2019 (UTC).
Hi Aabbccddeeffabcdef, all done! Have a great editathon! Le Loy 11:27, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
Good afternoon Ле Лой,
Is not 1 to 5 points, but 1 to 3 points !
Thanks, Aabbccddeeffabcdef (talk), the 13:05, 2 May 2019 (UTC).
Aabbccddeeffabcdef, sorry I didn't get it right. Done now! Le Loy 01:47, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
Hello Ле Лой,
I can't submit the articles w:fr:Président de Madagascar, because the tool write “× 157 words”. I think that my article is not very big, but when I add text, this number up.
Thanks & Sincerely, Aabbccddeeffabcdef (talk), the 16:52, 3 May 2019 (UTC).
Hi Aabbccddeeffabcdef, looks like it's all god now? Le Loy 23:26, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

Hello,

Is possible to change a note, because I did an error of notation.

Thanks, Aabbccddeeffabcdef (talk), the 16:55, 25 May 2019 (UTC).

Hello Ле Лой,
Can you add a script that adds half a point for an item labelled Good Item (grey star) and 1 point for an item labelled Quality Item (yellow star). Just so you know, it’s very clear in the rules. Then we’ll need a list of those who have more than 20 points. Or you can send us back the list of jurors who haven’t finished writing down the articles. Indeed, I have already tested several times, I can not send the messages of congratulations (button Award), because I have a mistake of three kilometers long (it is a metaphor, of course).
Thank you very much for everything you will do (it would be good in 3-4 days).
Sincerely, Aabbccddeeffabcdef (talk), the 12:28, 22 June 2019 (UTC).
    • Hi Aabbccddeeffabcdef, it's not possible to add a fraction of a point. I can multiply all the points by 2 and make 1 point for Good Items and 2 for Quality items, does it work for you?
    • Haha, 3 kilometers is a lot! Could you please send me the whole error message text? Or a screen shot. You can send it here or to kf8.wikipedia@gmail.com -- it would be greatly appreciated! Le Loy 11:55, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
Good afternoon Ле Лой,
3 kilometers is a French's expression. For African Month, it's okay, I edited the rule for 1 point for a Good article and 2 points for a Quality's article. And the delay for labels is 1 month.
Thanks, Aabbccddeeffabcdef (talk), the 15:50, 2 July 2019 (UTC).
Hi Aabbccddeeffabcdef,
Done! So... Could you please send me the error message text? :-) I don't mind if it's long. Le Loy 22:45, 2 July 2019 (UTC)
Ле Лой But not ! The points didn't change ! Example : Tsaag Valren had do vote for label of some article, but the points are always at 152.13. AirSThib (talk), the 07:41, 6 July 2019 (UTC). (My user name was changed).
Cheval au Cameroun is an good article, since start june. Yet, anything point didn't add, but the article must have 1 point. AirSThib (talk), the 07:50, 6 July 2019 (UTC).
AirSThib, the jury has to press the button 'Good article' for the points to be added. Le Loy 03:58, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
Hello Ле Лой
This is all our “fault”. Can you change the jurors “Théo SOLIGNY” to “Amiral Bouclettes” and “Aabbccddeeffabcdef to “AirSThib” ?
Thanks, AirSThib (talk), the 08:05, 8 July 2019 (UTC).
AirSThib, done! Le Loy 23:12, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

A Translation Central is available to help translators figure out what's been covered and what's left to do. Over the course of the next few weeks, your attention on candidates' profiles is particularly welcome.

While there are four languages that are especially relevant for multiple affiliates (namely Arabic, French, Russian and Spanish), you can also add others. If you can't help: please see if you know anyone in your circle who could, and spread the word :) Thank you! Elitre (WMF) and Facilitators of ASBS 2019, 13:20, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi Le Loy, we are having problems with the German contributions and the tool - two editors added content to an existing article (Chittagong), but the tool will not accept the contribution of the second editor, because the article already is in there for the first editor. Can you help us? Thanks! --Kritzolina (talk) 19:14, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Hi Kritzolina, there's no way to add the same article twice; you can add extra points to other articles submitted by the same user. Le Loy 23:26, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
Too bad, but thanks for the information! I will do the manual adding then! Oh, could you belatedly add user:Wikiolo as a jury member for German? That would be very kind! --Kritzolina (talk) 18:57, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks a lot! --Kritzolina (talk) 06:39, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

Month of Africa in french[edit]

Hello. I have a problem with the following tool: https://tools.wmflabs.org/fountain/editathons/mois-africain-2019-fr. When I click on the name of a contributor, the article he submitted appears a very short time and then I am directed to his user page without being able to select the article to be evaluated. What can I do ? Thanks. - Paul.schrepfer (talk) 16:06, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

I progressed, I found the judge button and the first article to evaluate is displayed. apologize for the inconvenience. Cordially. - Paul.schrepfer (talk) 16:19, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi Le Loy! I'm one of this competition's jury members. Thank you for the tools. However, we encountered some missing features from the judging tools :

  1. The judge button is not available yet for jury members, thus we haven't be able to judge the article
  2. The deletion option for the existing submission for the jury members

Could you please add those features to the tools? And also, could you please change the end time for the competition to 26 May 2019? Thank you! We appreciate your help! Amanda Amalia (talk) 04:10, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Hi Amanda Amalia, could you please send me a screenshot of a Jury not being able to see the 'Judge' button? I've added myself as a jury member and I can see the button: https://i.imgur.com/UvDGqFq.png One of the possible reasons could be the interface language: try switching to English and let me know if it reappears.
    The deletion button is available under the 'Submit' button for jury members: https://i.imgur.com/JmmoSvd.png
    I've changed the end time to 26 May :-)
    Le Loy 00:36, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

Hello Le Loy! I have also tried to change the language but it did not reappear, as well as the deletion button. Here is the link to the picture of the current interface for the jury members: https://imgur.com/a/qam0CkS Thank you! Amanda Amalia (talk) 03:57, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Amanda Amalia, oh wow, it looks super weird. Could you please open the editathon page again, press ctrl+U then copy and paste the code from there to http://pastebin.com or here directly? Le Loy 22:32, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Ya indeed! I already pasted it to the pastebin. But, actually two of the jury members can judge the articles and two of us just can't. I hope that you can fix it. Thank you for your consideration. Amanda Amalia (talk) 05:06, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Did you update Fountain tool to new database fields? --Agusbou2015 (talk) 16:22, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

Request for judging tool in Indonesian Wikipedia[edit]

  1. What's the editathon's name in Indonesian language?
    Maraton Menuju 500.000
  2. What is the exact start/end time?
    1 July 2019 - one day after the Indonesian Wikipedia reaches the milestone of 500,000 articles
  3. Who are the jury members?
    User:Mimihitam
  4. Is there any template to add to the talkpage after the article is submitted? Does it have any parameters?
    No template
  5. How is the marks' system? In WAM it was 'accepted/not accepted', but you can also have additional points or penalty points.
    1 point for each article (minimal 300 words with citation at the end of every paragraph), 2 points if someone writes an article on selected topics concerning Indonesia, 3 points if someone writes an article on topics that are lacking in the Indonesian Wikipedia (such as mathematics), also possibility of rejection if the article is written using machine translation/is written with bad translation/does not have any source/does not fulfill the word count requirement

Thank you very much for your support. Mimihitam (talk) 07:45, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

  • The editathon will last for 24 hours from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59 on 1 July 2019 by UTC time?
  • Only new articles are permitted?
  • Each accepted article gets 1 point; if the article is written on one of the selected topics it gets +2 points (3 in total) and if it also is written about some rare topic it gets +3 more (to the maximum total of 6 points per article). Is this the correct interpretation?
  • Fountain cannot check if there are citations, just for your information :-)
Le Loy 04:34, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi, here are the details:

  • No, not 24 hours. It will last until the Indonesian Wikipedia reaches 500,000 articles. By 1 July we are projected to have around 495,000 articles, so we want to create a mini event for this.
  • Yes, only new articles are allowed.
  • The points are not cumulative. So the maximum point is 3 if I write an article on (for instance) mathematics, 2 if I write an article on (for instance) the history of Indonesia, and only 1 for other articles that do not belong to selected categories.
  • It's fine, as long as there is an option for the jury to reject articles that are submitted without any citation

Thank you :) Mimihitam 07:10, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

Thank you so much! I really appreciate it :) Mimihitam 07:01, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

@Le Loy hi, your tool is really amazing, thank you so much! I just want to clarify that the marathon will last for a month only, so from 1-31 July 2019. Thank you so much once again :) Mimihitam (talk) 09:12, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Not working[edit]

HI @Ле Лой: This tool is not working. please check it and fix. Thanks-- Ramjit Tudu (talk) 07:28, 3 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Hi Ramjit Tudu, oh, I've thought it's just a day-long event, my mistake! Done :-) Le Loy 09:17, 3 August 2019 (UTC)

@Ле Лой: Thanks :) Ramjit Tudu (talk) 15:41, 3 August 2019 (UTC)

Unable to submit articles[edit]

HI @Ле Лой: we are unable to submit articles in fountain (sample article :ᱯᱚᱥᱪᱤᱢ ᱜᱚᱫᱟᱵᱚᱨᱤ ᱦᱚᱱᱚᱛ]. Another issue that ᱵᱟᱦᱨᱟᱜᱚᱰᱟ article have around 600 words but fountain tool showing 250 words. Please have a look on this. Thanks --Ramjit Tudu (talk) 11:42, 4 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Hi Ramjit Tudu, the reason is that Fountain only counts symbols in coherent text -- excluding tables, citations, footnotes, lists, section titles and comments. The articles in question have large lists that are not taken into account by the tool. You can either rewrite the list into a paragraph of text or change the requirement in characters. Le Loy 22:33, 4 August 2019 (UTC)

Hii @Ле Лой: thanks for support and cooperation, I just want to clear what Ramjit Tudu want to say, the article which have been created even after 2nd of August tools is not allowing to submit, for example the article [ᱵᱤᱡᱚᱭᱱᱟᱜᱽᱨᱟᱢ ᱦᱚᱱᱚᱛ] is created on 02nd august 2019(02/08/2019) the tools is showing article is created as 8th of february 2019 (08/02/2019), The case is same with all the articles. Say another article [ᱵᱷᱩᱨᱠᱟᱹᱤᱯᱤᱞ], this article has been created on 4th august 2019 (04/08/2019) but the tools is showing 8th april 2019 (04/08/2019). For every article date is showing as month and month is showing as date. So I think there might be some issues in date. Thanking you again R Ashwani Banjan Murmu (talk) 02:33, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

  • Hi R Ashwani Banjan Murmu! Oh I see, now it's fixed :-) Hopefully you won't have any other problems with Fountain, happy editing! Le Loy 08:33, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

Extension[edit]

  • hii @Ле Лой: at the end of the day again a bit support needed form you, as our editathon was scheduled from 2nd of august to 2nd of september. and in India it is another 16 hrs are left to complete the day. can we extend this to another 15 hrs. This is needed as we had intimated all our participant editathon will complete tonight. Regards R Ashwani Banjan Murmu (talk) 02:58, 2 September 2019 (UTC)
  • Hii @Ле Лой: yes, some other participant too had the same issue near about 10 articles are left unsubmitted. Can we make an arrangement that the articles which were created and completed between 02/08/2019 to 02/09/2019 jury can submit the articles on behalf of the participant.This will be verymuch helpful. R Ashwani Banjan Murmu (talk) 23:07, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
    • Hi R Ashwani Banjan Murmu, sure! How much time do you need for that? Would a week be OK? Le Loy 23:42, 7 September 2019 (UTC)
      • @Ле Лой: yes , it would be good enough.R Ashwani Banjan Murmu (talk) 00:03, 8 September 2019 (UTC)
        • R Ashwani Banjan Murmu, done, you have a week more. Please note that anyone can add articles now, it's technically impossible to limit it to jury members. Le Loy 09:44, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
          • @Ле Лой: still not allowing to submit due to date of article, though the article is written on 02/09/2019 but the tools is saying article is written on 09/02/2019.Please have a LookR Ashwani Banjan Murmu (talk) 11:01, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
            • R Ashwani Banjan Murmu, you've asked to accept articles that were created 'before 02-09-2019 23:59 (UTC+05:30)' which is equal to 'before 10:30 in UTC'. Your article was created at 11:42 and thus doesn't match the time/date restriction. The 09/02 is just the American date format (September the 2nd), so it's all good. Do you want to extend the acceptable time to 23:59:59 UTC? Le Loy 05:37, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
  • hii @Ле Лой: At last we concluded our a month long editathon, I sincerely extend my thanks to you on behalf of the entire santali wikipedia community for supporting us throughout the editathon. R Ashwani Banjan Murmu (talk) 17:13, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

    • Yay! I'm very happy to be a part of it! @R Ashwani Banjan Murmu:, let me know if (when!) you decide to organise another one :-) It's a pleasure to work with you. Le Loy 23:35, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

Fountain tool in Slovak and Czech[edit]

Hi, could you please add Slovak to the Fountain tool? Translations are done and proofread. Could you also somehow make Slovak the default language for all Slovak edit-a-thons (previous and future ones) so that users don't need to switch languages manually? Thanks, --Luky001 (talk) 20:55, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

Hello Luky001 and Ле Лой! Ле Лой can you please add Czech language too? Thank you! --Patriccck (talk) 12:28, 6 August 2019 (UTC)
How it looks? Now, in Czech are translations done and proofread. --Patriccck (talk) 16:52, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

Wikipedia American Month[edit]

Hi !

Can you create the tool (Fountain) for the French Wikipedia American Month, as the African Month, except a jury musn't note his articles. The date is 1st - 31 october 2019.

Thanks, AirSThib (Flight attendant · Flights), the 07:44, 6 September 2019 (UTC).

  • Hi AirSThib, done: https://tools.wmflabs.org/fountain/editathons/mois-americain-wikipedia
    Since there's no information on jury members, you're the only Jury member listed for now; let me know if I need any other users. Le Loy 09:43, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
    • Hi Le Loy, the jury has finally been decided for this event: see this page. Would you mind adding the additional jury members in the system? Also for grading, we are planning to rate the submitted article from 0 to 3 using .5 increments (i.e., the possible grades are 0, .5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, and 3), is it possible to use such system? Thanks so much, Binabik (talk) 00:24, 26 September 2019 (UTC).
      • Hi Binabik, the jury members are all in. Unfortunately Fountain doesn't allow non-integer marks so what you can do is to use a system with 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 points. Would that be OK? Le Loy 11:35, 28 September 2019 (UTC)
        • Thanks for adding the jury. For the grades, we finally agreed that 1 to 5 (1,2,3,4,5) is suitable, thanks for pointing out this issue. Lastly, we are not sure what are the current criteria for accepting an article ? If anything, we would like the acceptance rate to be minimum 300 words (excluding references and templates). Thanks so much for your help! Binabik (talk) 20:01, 30 September 2019 (UTC)
          • Binabik, the grades were updated. The current requirements for articles are: 1) 3000 bytes and 300 words; 2) must be submitted by the person who created it; 3) must be created while the editathon is running. Would you like me to delete the 3000 bytes restriction or is it OK to leave it as it is? I think it's almost impossible to write a 300-word article that have be less than 3000 bytes. Le Loy 02:10, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
            • I guess it's fine, thanks so much for your help. It's really amazing all this work you put in to maintain the Fountain tool! Binabik (talk) 03:31, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
              • Hi! I'm one of the jury member for this "American Month". I was wondering if it would be possible to have user submit articles they did not create but improved (i.e. 300-word/3000 bytes more) during the editathon? Can the tool allow such conditions? Thanks a lot! Sir Henry (talk) 12:35, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
                • Hi Sir Henry, it sure is possible! I wonder if it is a majority decision or just a suggestion? @Binabik: should I proceed with this change? Le Loy 02:54, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
              • Thank you for your kind words :-) Le Loy 02:54, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
                • Hi! Thanks for your quick answer. It's actually part of the original rule "créer ou désébaucher" which means "create or improve" (ébauche being a stub-level article). We can wait @Binabik:'s answer if you want, no problem! Thanks again Sir Henry (talk) 06:12, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
                  • Sir Henry, sorry, I forgot to ping you -- it's fixed. Le Loy 00:00, 6 October 2019 (UTC)
