Fundraising translation feedback

Hey Kf8,

I wanted to ask for your help. As you may be aware we have been running banners on many language wikis. We have a lot of new content this year and I really want to conduct a thorough review of our translations. This is a combination of feedback from the community, readers, donors as well as those with professional translator experience. This will help us ensure the highest quality of translations used in our messaging.

To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to give us feedback for Russian using This Link

Simply follow the simple instructions on that page and if you have any questions feel free to contact me on my talk page.

Many Thanks

Tech News

As the year, at least according to the calendar used by Tech News, is drawing to end, I wanted to say thanks for the Tech News translations – both as a person writing Tech News and a Wikimedia editor who cares about the movement. It’s difficult enough to keep track of what’s happening if one speaks English. I’m happy there’s one place to get a weekly update of what’s happening if one doesn’t. The one true international language is translation. Thank you. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 13:39, 16 December 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you too :) Ле Лой (talk) 05:45, 17 December 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Проект:Месяц Азии в ТатВики

Уважаемый коллега,

Нам бы помочь с отображением в ttwiki баннера Special:CentralNoticeBanners/edit/WAM_2016. Страница проекта создана, необходимый текст баннера на татарский переведен.

Заранее спасибо.--Frhdkazan (talk) 19:19, 29 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Здравствуйте, Фархад! А что не так, что не отображается? Le Loy 22:08, 29 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]
По состоянию на вчера всё решилось, спасибо, ув. Ле Лой. Я параллельно обратился еще и к AddisWang, он оперативно среагировал. Одновременно выяснилось, что и у нас подключен механизм tt:МедиаВики:Sitenotice – и пока не совсем ясно, который из них я сейчас обозреваю ... ;) --Frhdkazan (talk) 11:54, 31 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Не за что! Le Loy 19:46, 31 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Statistical data

Hi Le Loy, I am local organizer of 2016 Asian month from Sinhala Wikipedia. In the judging tool that we have been provided, i can't find any option for to find the number of words, size and other statistical data of an article. Are there any options for that--L Manju (talk) 06:47, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi L Manju, it will be available later today. Sorry for the delay! Le Loy 06:48, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you Le Loy--L Manju (talk) 06:52, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

OAuth tool

I've noticed that the OAuth tool doesn't differentiate between articles created in a sandbox and articles create in the mainspace. I just created an article, en:George Wall (planter) and it was declined as I created the article in draft in my sandbox in October. It clearly needs to be adjusted to be able to determine the difference between a draft and an actual article. Dan arndt (talk) 07:21, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Dan arndt, the article en:George Wall (planter) has been rejected because it was created well before the edit-a-thon start time and date. To my understanding, edit-a-thons like WAM only accept articles that have been created after the edit-a-thon start, but let's ask the EnWP jury members AddisWang, Titodutta, SuperHamster, and Rosiestep to comment. Le Loy 08:34, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Dan arndt Sorry according to our rules it can not count. But if you can submit the article on the en:Wikipedia Asian Month/Participate, as discussed below, if this one can lead you to 15 articles or ambassador, we will count.--AddisWang (talk) 14:21, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]


Здравствуйте. Я добавил статью с помощью инструмента "Фонтан" из белорусской википедии, но она не отображается в списке. Нужно подождать? --Artificial123 (talk) 07:31, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

И ещё написано, что шаблон должен автоматически проставиться на страницу обсуждения статьи, чего не произошло. --Artificial123 (talk) 07:43, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Здравствуйте, Artificial123! Как называется статья? Чтобы шаблон добавился, нужно сказать мне, как он называется :-) Пока что Фонтан не знает, какой именно ставить. Le Loy 08:08, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
be:Масавыя забойствы армян у 1894—1896 гадах‎ - вот статья. А шаблон вот. А можно ещё, чтоб параметр участника проставлялся, как я здесь руками проставил? --Artificial123 (talk) 08:16, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Artificial123, я не вижу вашей попытки на сервере. Вы уверены, что нажали зелёную кнопку «добавить» в самом конце? Попробуйте, пожалуйста, ещё раз.
А шаблон, конечно, будет сам проставлять участника. Я включил эту функциональность в вашем марафоне. Le Loy 08:37, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Теперь вижу. Просто я создавал прямо из инструмента статью и не видел зелёную кнопку. Мне просто показало красную ссылку, я нажал и начал писать. Большое спасибо за помощь. --Artificial123 (talk) 08:43, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Не за что, успехов! :-) Le Loy 08:46, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
И ещё вопрос. Если статью перенесли без сохранения пересылки, что тогда? --Artificial123 (talk) 06:50, 2 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Artificial123, что вы имеете ввиду? Откуда и куда перенесли? Le Loy 07:01, 2 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Ситуация такова: участник создал статью, но с ошибкой в названии, другой участник переименовал их (перенёс) без пересылки. Что делать первому участнику в таком случае? Ведь теперь "Фонтан" пишет "Статья не найдена", что логично. Попробовать добавить ещё раз?
И второй вопрос. В условиях контеста писалось, что минимальный размер статьи должен быть 300 слов. Я ради теста попробовал добавить меньшую статью, всё равно показывает зелёную галочку. Так и надо? --Artificial123 (talk) 07:18, 2 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Artificial123, я могу исправить название статьи на новое руками, если скажете ники обоих и название статьи.
Фонтан пускает статьи меньше 300 слов, если их размер больше 3 КБ, местное жюри может решить, что, например, 280 слов — это нормально. А может решить, что надо 300 слов и поставить «незачёт». Я сделал в рувики жёсткое условие на 300 слов, если хотите, вам тоже сделаю. Le Loy 08:19, 2 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Участник SamGold, статьи "Паўстанні ў Партугальскім Тыморы, 1860—1912" и "Рэферэндум па самавызначэнні Усходняга Тымора". Сейчас они с ошибками написаны. Да, давайте не меньше 300 слов. --Artificial123 (talk) 08:24, 2 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Artificial123, всё сделано. Le Loy 08:38, 2 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Большое спасибо. --Artificial123 (talk) 08:55, 2 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
А можно перевести интерфейс на белорусский язык? --Artificial123 (talk) 06:25, 4 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Конечно! Artificial123, вот ссылка. Можете ориентироваться на русский перевод, он вот. Le Loy 07:52, 4 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Yes check.svg Сделано. Можно его как-то теперь включить? --Artificial123 (talk) 08:40, 4 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Artificial123, включил, проверьте. Le Loy 02:06, 5 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Спасибо, всё отлично. --Artificial123 (talk) 06:25, 5 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Месяц Азии

Здравствуйте Ле Лой, хочу чтобы в Грузинскую Википедию этот шаблон добавлялся автоматически на страницу обсуждения и если возможно чтобы он показывал имю участника--David1010 (talk) 11:03, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Здравствуйте, David1010, я добавил шаблон, но чтобы он показывал имя участника, его нужно доработать как в русской или беларусской википедиях. Посмотрите, как там сделано — в русском разделе чуть сложнее, в беларусском немного проще. Le Loy 11:50, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Я переделал шаблон и сделал копию русского шаблона--David1010 (talk) 12:13, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
David1010, я исправил, теперь новые статьи будут с шаблоном. Старые нужно поправить вручную. Le Loy 02:55, 2 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Спасибо :)--David1010 (talk) 05:07, 2 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Не за что, обращайтесь :-) Le Loy 05:09, 2 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

В Грузинском шаблоне было орфографическая ощибка в место მომხარებელი было მომხარებელი. Я уже исправил ощибку в шаблоне, теперь надо чтобы вы поменяли მომხარებელი на მომხმარებელი--David1010 (talk) 12:59, 2 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

David1010, исправил. Le Loy 22:05, 2 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Большое спасибо :)--David1010 (talk) 06:06, 3 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Wrong time

Hello Le Loy! I wanted to add some articles at Asian month competition, but the tool is registering the wrong time. I posted them after 0:00 MET, 1st November (check history of the articles) but the tool said, it would have been after 23:00 on 31st October: de:Belagerung Colombos, de:Resolution 2037 des UN-Sicherheitsrates, de:Gaspar de Figueira de Serpa. Greetings, --J. Patrick Fischer (talk) 11:28, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, sorry, I can't find the source of the problem momentarily, it will take some time; in the worst case I'll add these articles manually on your behalf in a couple of days. Le Loy 11:50, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
J. Patrick Fischer, it turns out DeWiki shows edit's time in UTC+1. So in reality your article has been created on 23:00 31 October UTC, while WAM rules only allow articles created after 1 November UTC. AddisWang, please comment on this: should we make an exception for DeWiki? I can shift their time limits. Le Loy 11:56, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Would be nice. It would be a pity to loose three articles, especially two quite big ones, just because of a time shift, nobody realized before. ;-) --J. Patrick Fischer (talk) 12:08, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Next problem: I made a translation of an English article. I started worlking on it this morning in my user space, after it was imported from enWP by admins like requested by rules. Now the tool do not accept the article, too: de:Rajasingha II.. :-( --J. Patrick Fischer (talk) 13:56, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

J. Patrick Fischer In the three article cases, please submit these articles on /participate page next to your name, if by the end these articles can makes your accepted articles to 15, or ambassador, we will count to your accepted articles, since only an hour different. In the case of Rajasingha II., please also submit on the event page, and will count into your accepted articles in the end.--AddisWang (talk) 14:16, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
OK, thank you! I will make another translated article, which will have the same problem. ^^° I will inform others in deWP in the discussion, that translated articles have to be count on the participating list list. --J. Patrick Fischer (talk) 15:03, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
@AddisWang:: Imported and translated article will be marked in German participation list with "(en)" for example. Greetings, --J. Patrick Fischer (talk) 18:05, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
J. Patrick Fischer: Okay, sounds good!--AddisWang (talk) 18:39, 1 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

unable to judge

No any option or button for judgement. Unable to accept or reject any article. May be, due to my name is shown as দিব্য_দত্ত instead of দিব্য দত্ত. দিব্য দত্ত (talk) 21:48, 2 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Добавление статей

Приветствую! Не получилось добавить статью после авторизации в марафоне Месяц Азии. Пишу Вам. Статья "Герб Кызыла". Прошу проверить. Anahoret (talk) 06:23, 3 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Здравствуйте, там недостаточно слов: всего 260, а по правилам надо 300. Напишите ещё текста в статью и инструмент её примет. Le Loy 06:58, 3 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

problem in evaluating articles

hi.. am gaurav jhammat from punjabi wikipedia. i am a jury member also in wikipedia asian month. I have some problems in tool as i open it on system. Can u fix it please ot tell me if its temporary?--Gaurav Jhammat (talk) 14:05, 3 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

screenshot of wam
yes, i also faced this problem for submit my article into Punjabi Wikipedia and i also mentioned that Is this tool works on mobile version? Sony dandiwal (talk) 14:16, 3 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Hi, could you please specify, what is wrong with the tool? Is it OK now? Try to press the "Submit" button. What happens next? The tool should be working on mobile phones too. Le Loy 20:01, 3 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Hi Gaurav Jhammat, Sony dandiwal, your screen shot shows everything is as it's supposed to be. But there are no submitted articles (your Wikipedia users haven't submitted any). Now, as I can see, you have submitted an article (ਹਲਾਲ ਲਵ), does everything work fine now? Try to press the "Judge" button. Le Loy 20:02, 3 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Li Loy, i creates my article ਮਿਆਂਮਾਰ ਦਾ ਭੂਗੋਲ but when i tried to submit, it says 'Article not found'. And today when i created another new article, same thing was happened. But my other friends are able to see and they shows me this article that it is fine. So why I'm not abled to do this? (i will send you some screenshots if you have any facebook account for more info. Sony dandiwal (talk) 15:29, 4 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
The problem is solved. so don't worry Le Loy. I see that this tool is working on Google Chrome not on UC Browser in my phone. so okay. Sony dandiwal (talk)
Oh, right, I haven't tested UC Browser, sorry. Will do it later. Le Loy 00:43, 5 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Adapting Fountain for Wikiquote

Hi Ле Лой,

Supported by Amical Wikimedia, we have extended the Asian Month to Catalan Wikiquote and we have begun by creating pages like Yosano Akiko. Could you adapt the application in Catalan language to be able to score pages created there? It's a nice opportunity to see the impact of your proposal in a sister project.

I notify the jury of cawiki, @Kippelboy:. Thank you, --Xavi Dengra (MESSAGES) 23:18, 4 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

It would be great if could be a column appart from the "Article" one called "Citation pages" or someone like that. I hope it may be possible! Best regards! --Xavi Dengra (MESSAGES) 23:20, 4 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Hi Xavi Dengra, sure, no problem with any WM project, Fountain can handle that. I will create another edit-a-thon named Mes de l'Àsia a la Viquidites, description will be Wikiquote Asian Month 2016 Catalan edition, with Xavier Dengra as a jury, Fountain will check if the article was created from 1 Nov til 30 Nov, the article must have 3000 bytes, the namespace must be 0 (main), the article submitter must match the creator (only the original creator can submit the article), is it correct? I think in this case there's no real need in renaming Articles to Citation pages, am I right? There's a lot of messages like 'Article not found', I'm not sure if it's worth changing that to 'Citation page not found'... Or should I change it? Le Loy 02:35, 5 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you for your quick reply. But do you think it could be possible to manage Fountain to handle Wikipedia and Wikiquote in the same edit-a-thon tool? We centralised the challenge page in Wikipedia because one of our goals is to encourage wikipedians in editing on sister projects, and by counting editions together we will enhance the target and make it easy for participants. If we have two different challenges, we will probably loose implication in both projects. So if you can add the option to add and punctuate both creations in the same tool, leave Kippelboy as the sole jury (or add me too if it's suitable) and add a second column called "Citation pages" to distinguish them from Wikipedia articles, we'd really be very grateful!! --Xavi Dengra (MESSAGES) 11:29, 5 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
The other conditions you have said before (namespace, length, etc) remain the same. --Xavi Dengra (MESSAGES) 11:30, 5 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Xavi Dengra, I'm afraid combined edit-a-thons are not supported at the moment. I might add that in the future though, but the development will take more than a month :-( Sorry... Also the global organisers might not agree with the idea of a combined score for different projects (e. g. it's supposedly easier to create WikiQuote entries, and by doing that the Catalan Wikipedia results might get a big boost). I have added a separate competition just in case, you might combine the score for participants, for example. Le Loy 11:50, 5 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Then do not worry! Thank you very much for your help and kindness; we will modify a little bit the challenge to adapt them to the tool :) Best regards! --Xavi Dengra (MESSAGES) 12:02, 5 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Xavier Dengra If we send postcards on both cawp and cawq, that will promote more people to edit. Thus we need to discuss a maybe global rules for Wikiquota to find a proper line to send postcards.--AddisWang (talk) 16:57, 8 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Fountain (WAM Tool) Translation

Hi White Demon, thanks for organising the WAM in Azerbaijani Wikipedia this year! I've noticed your translation of the WAM tool is a little problematic: 1) You don't have to translate the word 'English' to Azerbaijani, you need to provide the name of your language to show here. 2) 'The editathon will start XXX' and 'The editathon will end XXX' are both translated as 'Müsabiqə XXX başlayacaq', is it right? 3) Does the word 'symbol' have a plural form? You have translated both 'xxx symbol' and 'xxx symbols' as 'XXX simvol', is it correct? It means that Fountain (the WAM tool) will show '165 simvol' in Azerbaijani, is that right? Le Loy 02:51, 6 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Le Loy. I fixed the mistakes. But "'xxx symbol' and 'xxx symbols' as 'XXX simvol', is it correct?", yeah it is correct. In Azerbaijani language noun doesn't receive plural form after numeral. Example, in English - "one car", in Azerbaijani - "bir maşın". But in English - "two cars", in Azerbaijani again in singular - "iki maşın".--White DemΩn (el psy congroo) 08:23, 6 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you for the explanation! Will add it soon. Le Loy 08:25, 6 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Add Articles into WAM Judging tool

Dear Ле Лой, I am Ranithsiji, co-ordinator of WAM in Malayalam Wikipedia. I am facing a problem. In Malayalam wiki people (they are not technically that much sound) are not adding the articles into the judging tool. I am a person with judging rights. Even I cannot add these un added articles into the judging tool. Is there any way to add the articles into the tool for a co-ordinatior. Because contacting each editor and educate them to add the articles into the tool is a little bit impossible. If I can add the articles into the tool then that will be much more helpfull. Looking for your replay. Regards --Ranjithsiji (talk) 03:35, 8 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Ranjithsiji, do you have any ideas why aren't the users adding their articles? The Malayalam translation is available, what might be the problem? Le Loy 03:41, 8 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
It is not the problem with the translation. People are more concentrated on writing articles than maintaining statistics(I dont know why). A small team is managing the statistics of the edit-a-thons and maintanance. Also the writers in malayalam wikipedia are spread all over the world. I dont personally know most of the people. So communicating with all the editors and make sure all the articles are added is almost impossible task for me. If you can create an exception that a jury can add all the articles into the tool with the article creators name then that will be a great help for us. Other wise lot of articles will be missing out from judging tool. In malayalam wikipedia we are running a quarry system to collect all the articles. Can you do anything? Hoping for a replay. Regards --Ranjithsiji (talk) 14:07, 8 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Ranjithsiji, currently there is no way for the jury members to add articles manually, but I'm planning to implement that later (next year maybe). As for now, please post a list of articles (and their authors usernames) to my talk page daily, I'll be adding it manually by myself. Le Loy 22:02, 8 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

[Judging Tool] Add comment after saving my judging

Hi. I gave "no" to a candidate article and saved that decision, and at a later time I thought to add a comment to it, but "Save" button at right bottom did not change to clickable state. I had no way but to move to another article and choose "Discard". Is this behavior a bug, or intended specification? --Takot (talk) 14:09, 8 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Takot, it's a bug, I am now working on it. Should be resolved soon. Sorry for inconvenience! Le Loy 22:02, 8 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Problem while adding comment in article

Hi, i am nirjal stha from nepali Wikipedia and i'm one of the jury members of WAM 2016 in Nepali wikipedia.

Greetings. It seems that I am having trouble adding new entries to this tool. Can there anything be done about this? Thank you. Arius1998 (talk) 06:16, 9 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Arius1998, could you please provide more details? Which language edition are you trying to participate in? What are you clicking, what do you see? Are there any error messages? Which browser are you using? Le Loy 08:14, 9 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
I am using the English version. It has a rather long error message, which goes like this: Network error. Please try again: 500. I use Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. Arius1998 (talk) 08:35, 9 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Arius1998, could you please copy the whole text of that error message here? Thanks in advance. Le Loy 09:17, 9 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Good day, the tool begins functioning again. Thanks for the accommodation. Arius1998 (talk) 01:21, 10 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
No worries, if something goes wrong again, please let me know :-) Le Loy 02:13, 10 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Translating Fountain to Portuguese

Hello. I noticed that Fountain, the tool used to keep track of WAM contributions, isn't available in Portuguese as of now. I was wondering if I can somehow submit a translation, similar to what TranslateWiki allows us to do. --ArgonSim (talk) 17:52, 3 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi ArgonSim, sure, here's the link! Le Loy 19:55, 3 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry for the stupid question, but when you say "Don't translate the preposition (“will start”, not “will start in”)", does it mean I have to keep it as it is? So the right translation would be: "O edit-a-thon will start XXX"?
PS: I finished translating it.--ArgonSim (talk) 20:02, 3 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, will add it soon :-) Le Loy 21:55, 3 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
ArgonSim, the preposition is automatically added by the library I'm using, so there is no need in translating it, otherwise it would look like The editathon will start in in 3 days. Le Loy 21:55, 3 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
@Ле Лой: Sorry for bothering you once again, but do you know if the pt translation is already available on the tool? I can't seem to find it in the menu. Thanks! --ArgonSim (talk) 16:31, 4 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
ArgonSim, done. Please review it, I have a feeling there are problems with your translation, for example, with the phrase 'O edit-a-thon will start', it doesn't seem Portuguese to me. Le Loy 02:07, 5 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
@Ле Лой: Yeah, I know. But edit-a-thon is the term most Portuguese Wikipedians are familiar with, as can be seen here, so that's why I decided to leave it as it is. I left will start because for a brief moment I thought that I wasn't supposed to translate 'will start', but reading the documentation better I do understand it now. It's already corrected (O edit-a-thon começará XXX and O edit-a-thon terminará XXX). If you want to, you can also set pt-br with the very same translation as well, since there's no difference in this case. I've also translated it to pt-br [2] and reviewed the pt version [3] --ArgonSim (talk) 02:20, 5 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
ArgonSim, are you sure that the name of your language is Inglês? You don't have to translate the word 'English', you need to provide the name of your language to show here. Le Loy 02:49, 5 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
@Ле Лой: My mistake! It's already corrected in both languages. --ArgonSim (talk) 02:54, 5 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
ArgonSim, fixed! I guess there's no need in adding the exact copy in pt-br, so I'll leave it as is. Le Loy 03:02, 5 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

@Ле Лой: Is the tool going under maintenance? It won't load in spite of the browser used. --ArgonSim (talk) 18:15, 14 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

ArgonSim, not the tool itself, the Labs is under maintenance and nobody got notified in advance, sorry... Le Loy 20:04, 14 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
@Ле Лой: Hi, sorry for bothering you once again. One of the organizers on pt-wiki was having trouble using the submission tool, so I recorded a tutorial video on how to judge an article submitted to Wikipedia Asian Month. Do you think there'd be any problem if I uploaded the video to Commons? --ArgonSim (talk) 01:35, 16 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
ArgonSim, it would be very kind of you to upload some training materials to Commons! Thanks in advance. Le Loy 03:11, 16 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
@Ле Лой: Here it is. If you feel like the description is incorrect or that the categories might be misleading, feel free to correct them. --ArgonSim (talk) 17:17, 16 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Подключение других марафонов к инструменту Фонтан

Доброго дня! Каков порядок включения Вашего инструмента в работу конкурса, отличного от "Месяц Азии", проводимого в отдельно взятом разделе Википедии? --HalanTul (talk) 03:53, 12 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Здравствуйте, HalanTul! Вам нужно сказать мне: 1) как называется соревнование, 2) в каком оно разделе проходит 3) когда 4) какие условия участия (есть ли ограничения для юзеров), 5) какие статьи принимаются, 6) какая система оценок, 7) кто в жюри. Например:
  1. ru:Википедия:Марафон_юниоров
  2. русская Википедия
  3. 20.08.2016 — 10.09.2016
  4. могут участвовать только юзеры, зарегистрировавшиеся не более года назад
  5. объём статьи не менее 3 Кб и не менее 1000 знаков, только основное пространство
  6. система оценок — 1 базовый балл и 5 независимых дополнительных баллов (за оформление, за большой размер, за авторитетные источники…)
  7. в жюри Ле Лой, Томасина, Викиенот, Люба КБ и НоуФрост. Le Loy 06:42, 12 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

P.S. желательно сказать пораньше, за 2—3 недели до начала. Le Loy 06:43, 12 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

  • Спасибо за быстрый ответ! Мы совместно с Медиа-холдингом "Саха печать" начинаем двухмесячный марафон "Нэһилиэктэр — Бикипиэдьийэҕэ" (Наслеги — в Википедию). Наслег — так в Республике Саха называется низовое муниципальное образование.
Саха Википедия
10.11.2016 — 15.01.2017
только зарегистрированные участники
объём статьи не менее 2000 байт и не менее 200 слов, только основное пространство
система оценок — простая, 1 балл за статью
в жюри HalanTul, Чокуур Гаврильев, Egerman
Будем очень признательны, если поможете. --HalanTul (talk) 07:28, 12 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
HalanTul, готово, проверяйте: [4]. 1) У Чокуура нет вики-аккаунта, поэтому я его не добавил. Когда сделает — скажите его юзернейм и я добавлю его в жюри. 2) 200 КБ — это видимо опечатка? Должно быть 2000 байт? 3) В вашем марафоне можно и создавать новые, и дополнять старые статьи, так? (Если только новые, я могу разрешить добавление только новых). 4) Я сделал «консенсуное голосование» — пока все проголосовавшие жюри не поставят одну и ту же оценку марафону, она не будет отображаться (как в Марафоне Азии), если вы хотите сделать возможность ставить нецелые оценки (один из членов жюри поставил 1, другой 0 → итого 0,5) — скажите. Le Loy 09:49, 12 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Отлично! Да, насчет байтов опечатка. Да, дополнять можно, правда, эти статьи, скорее всего (так задумывалось), будут учтены только при подсчете общего итога одного наслега (при определении наслега-победителя, наиболее широко представленного в википедии), а не индивидуальных участников (которые могут писать статьи по разным наслегам, вне зависимости от места проживания). Что касается проверки, посмотрим работу Фонтана в течение нескольких дней. Потом отпишусь. --HalanTul (talk) 06:50, 13 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Wikipedia asian month jury member

Dear sir I have seen that the English wikipedia have many jury members and the hindi wikipedia has only one member as the jury member so please add active members to the hindi (hi) wikipedia's asian month jury If u feel short of experience members in the jury do nominate me for the same as I see it blank and out of administrator sometimes as one person cannot handle everything .

How to submit?

Sorry for the silly question, I too am new to this.

I made an article called Draft:Yong Ho (Academic), submitted for review, but am unable to submit for Wikipedian Asian Month using the Fountain tool.

Is this normal? If I have to wait 2-3 weeks for the approval/review does that put me outside November?

Thanks, any help would be appreciated. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by FrenziedEye (talk)

Hi FrenziedEye, only articles in the main namespace are allowed, but we can facilitate the approval process by summoning the EnWp jury members here! AddisWang, Lingveno, Rosiestep, SuperHamster, Titodutta, please look at en:Draft:Yong Ho (Academic). Le Loy 09:58, 14 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

No worries, FrenziedEye :-) If an article has anything before its title (like Draft:, or Wikipedia:), that's not main, it's something other than main. See Wikipedia:Namespace for future reference. Also, I'm using the {{u}} template to ping you so that you see a notification, so there's no need to do the same for me as I am notified of edits on my own talk page anyway.

How to properly deposit an item on "Wikipedia: Asian Month".

Hello, having traveled extensively in Asia, I wish to post some articles in the care of the campaign on "Wikipedia: Asian Month". When I use the tool this tool, once the title was given, I received the "Article not found" . How to properly deposit an item? Thank you best regards.- --PIERRE ANDRE LECLERCQ (talk) 15:23, 15 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi PIERRE ANDRE LECLERCQ, I can't see any new articles started by you in English Wikipedia (the link provided is for English Wikipedia, German Wikipedia is, Italian is et cetera). Are you planning to participate in the English edition? Which article you are trying to submit? Le Loy 21:55, 15 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Hello Le LoyThanks for your quick answer. Unfortunately my knowledge in English is too limited to write an article in this language. I would have liked to write such an article (in French):
"Khiet Ngong la Montagne Phou Asa (Laos) Le village de Khiet Ngong se situe dans la province de Champassak une province du sud du Laos frontalière de la Thaïlande et du Cambodge. Il est au cœur d'une zone naturelle de 2 400 km2 protégée par le Xe Plan (Xe Plan NPA).
=== Situation ===
Khiet Ngong se trouve au Sud du Plateau de Bolaven , et à l'Est de la plaine de Xe Khong,
=== Géologie, hydrographie===
La montagne Phou Asa domine le village de Khiet Ngong.
== Culture locale et patrimoine ==
Arrivé au sommet, on accède à une enceinte constituée de pierres plates superposées les unes sur les autres. C' est l'un des sites archéologiques du Laos, dont le mystère de ses origines, reste entier, qui remonte au 10 et 11ème siècle. Les laos le considère pour être l'ancienne forteresse d'un roi Attapeu.
== Tourisme ==
Le centre d'information à Phou Asa propose aux visiteurs les visites à dos d'éléphant, pour accéder au site archéologique. Les animaux appartiennent aux villageois mais ils sont placés sous la tutelle de l'organisme de promotion du village.
Dans le passé ils étaient utilisés pour le débardage des forêts. L’abattage des arbres étant maintenant interdit la reconversion s’est opérée avec le développement du tourisme."
Best regards.---PIERRE ANDRE LECLERCQ (talk) 10:54, 16 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Well, you need to get to the French Wikipedia, then start the article (by clicking this link, pasting your text there and hitting Enregistrer), then you would be able to submit it for the jury review in Fountain. The link is now red because the article does not exist, so make sure to create it before submitting. Le Loy 11:32, 16 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

WAM : Submitted, then renamed article

Hello Ле Лой,

One of the articles submitted on the tool on has been renamed after being proposed. Due to its new name, the article can't be properly reviewed in the judging tool ; so I discovered that this article had been renamed (twice, by the way !). Should I advise to the creator of the article to submit it a new time, under its current name, so that it could been judged correctly ?

Regards. - Daxipedia - 達克斯百科 (d) 23:50, 15 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Тылбаас алҕаһа
HalanTul, а какое там правило? Если 150, то тыллар или тыллах? А если 100? 10? 10 000? Если есть под руками учебник, где это объясняется, дайте ссылку/фотографию страницы. Le Loy 23:35, 13 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Поверьте моему экспертному мнению. Тыллаах - имеет/содержит столько-то слов (-лаах притяжательный суффикс). Тыллар - слова во множественном числе, но эта форма не используется при упоминании количества (1 тыл, 2 тыл, элбэх тыл - много слов). Ну а в данном контексте лучше использовать форму "тыллаах", так будет понятнее и будет правильно согласовываться с синтаксической конструкцией первой части предложения (там тоже -лаах, его вариант -таах). --HalanTul (talk) 13:00, 14 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Николай, я же не к тому пишу, что я вам не верю, — мне нужно понимать закономерность. Я же не могу просто написать «для числа 160 выводить „тыллаах“», мне нужно понять, когда такая форма употребляется. С какими числительными её ставить, со всеми? Со всеми, кроме 1? Со всеми кроме 1 и 2? Если правило сложное, то проще не мучить вас, заставляя выводить закономерности, а почитать учебник. Le Loy 19:42, 14 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Извините, если случайно Вас задел чем-то. Просто мне сложно будет найти что-то сейчас на русском языке, сканировать, выкладывать. Через несколько часов на самолет. Окончание множественного числа употребляется, если к предмету не применен количественный показатель. Если есть указание на точное количество (два, тринадцать, сто) или есть слова характеризующее количество (несколько, много) то в общем случае это окончание не применяется. То есть правильно будет "2 тыл", "13 тыл", "100 тыл". Но, вместе с тем, если нет определяющего слова, то "слова" будет "тыллар". В данном же контексте, когда мы показываем участникам критерий, по которому подходит или не подходит статья, правильнее не просто сказать "200 тыл" (200 слов), а "200 тыллаах" (содержит 200 слов). --HalanTul (talk) 21:39, 14 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
HalanTul, нет, что вы, мне показалось, это я вас задел :-) Учебник не обязательно, это «если есть под рукой, чтоб долго не писать». Вас понял, когда закончится вакханалия на сервере, сразу поправлю. Спасибо! И удачной поездки! Le Loy 22:35, 14 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Вопрос вдогонку: при оценивании жюри может тоже показывать «тыллаах» — «статья содержит 200 слов»? Т. е. может везде исправить? Le Loy 22:51, 14 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Да, скорее всего так будет естественнее выглядеть. Кстати, заметил, часть интерфейса оценки осталась на русском языке. --HalanTul (talk) 22:00, 22 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
HalanTul, что именно? Le Loy 22:05, 22 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]


Николай, вот ведь как бывает! Я как раз писал вам сообщение с вопросом про Фонтан (спрашивал, почему ваша википедия не пользуется им) и точно помню, что не записывал изменения на вашей странице, потому что искал ссылку на перевод. И тут вы мне пишете! Я обыскался в своём вкладе, куда я вам отослал реплику, и оказалось, что я её не отправлял вовсе. Поэтому моё предыдущее сообщение такое сумбурное :-) Как я понимаю, вы хотите иметь возможность отмечать, к какой части Азии относится конкретная статья? Я могу немного перенастроить Фонтан, чтобы у вашего жюри появились кнопки, позволяющие отнести каждую статью к одной из ваших семи категорий, а когда вы закончите оценивать, я предоставлю вам данные с разделением по региону. Сделать? Le Loy 02:32, 3 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Да, вы совершенно правильно поняли. Мы хотели сразу отмечать, какая часть Азии в ходе конкурса освещается лучше. Если не очень сложно, добавьте, пожалуйста, такую возможность. Последняя графа - для статей, которых трудно отнести к одной части Азии. --HalanTul (talk) 10:43, 3 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Я добавлю кнопки немного позже, через пару дней, сейчас я занят добавлением переводов. Не страшно же, да? Le Loy 01:26, 5 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Да, это не критично. --HalanTul (talk) 05:27, 5 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Adding other organizers' votes on the judging interface

Do you think it'd be possible to add the other organizers' votes on the judging interface, so they can be seen by someone who's evaluating an article? I took the liberty to simulate what it'd sort of look like if put in practice here. The article being shown had already been judged by the five organizers, and their comments were suppressed to save space.
The problem is that there are, as of now, 213 articles submitted to WAM 2016 on pt-wiki. If the organizer can't see that someone else has already approved the article, he'd end up wasting time evaluating it, only to find out later that he could've used that time to validate an article still not judged.
It could also be implemented as a collapsed list in case you want the organizers' comments to be shown, or maybe if the organizers' name don't fit the taskbar. Thank you for your attention! --ArgonSim (talk) 19:50, 16 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi ArgonSim, what I was trying to achieve by hiding jury's marks from each other is elimination of bias. We all are social animals, when you see a 'not accepted' by another jury member, you unconsciously start considering the article flawed too. Putting marks to articles in Fountain is (as far as I can tell) way easier than judging the 'traditional way', so I hope that's not too much of an issue... I'm planning to add an option 'skip articles with 2 or more marks' soon. Le Loy 22:38, 16 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
I thought about that problem too, but assumed at first it shouldn't pose that much of a risk. However, your solution is way better, it'd be great to have it implemented! --ArgonSim (talk) 22:43, 16 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Unable to add draft article using WAM tool

Hi, I created this draft: I'm not able to submit it using WAM tool. Matrix1919 (talk) 03:29, 23 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, Matrix1919, you need to publish it first, you can't submit drafts to this edit-a-thon. Le Loy 03:32, 23 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for the quick response! How do I publish it? Can I remove it from drafts? Matrix1919 (talk) 03:37, 23 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Matrix1919, well, I'm not that familiar with EnWp rules, but the drafts seems okay so I think there won't be any problems with you publishing it. Alternatively, you can ask one of the EnWp juries (en:Wikipedia:Wikipedia Asian Month#Organizers) to help you with it. Le Loy 03:54, 23 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
I moved it to article space and submitted it. Thank you! Matrix1919 (talk) 04:18, 23 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Hi, sorry to bother you about this again! Can't the WAM submission tool be modified to accept draft-articles? Being a rookie Wikipedia contributor, I'd like my drafts to be reviewed before moving them to the article-space. The draft I moved earlier was moved back to draft-space by an editor. He reverted it when I told him about the draft submission problem but he observed that it was not a good idea to review articles directly in the main-space. I agree with him. Is it possible to change the tool? Matrix1919 (talk) 19:00, 23 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Matrix1919, it's technically possible, but the EnWp organisers need to reach consensus on this change before I make it. You should contact them and discuss it. Le Loy 21:18, 23 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Existing article

I translated the article "Battle of Awa" to spanish with the title Batalla de Awa, but it seems that previously existed another article with the same name that was renamed and, later, deleted. That article had nothing to do with the article I wrote, but somehow, my article was added to the history of the preceeding one. Thus, when I try to add it to the WAM 2016 I receive a message saying that the article is not mine and it cannot be taken into account. Can you give me a helping hand?--Patxi A (talk) 12:49, 26 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Patxi A, I've included the article on your behalf, don't hesitate to contact me if you need it again. Le Loy 02:52, 27 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Removing an article.

Hello. It's me again. I had a problem, which is already solved, with an article. I mean, I had to put a provisional name to an article prior to have it renamed properly. Now it is done, but in the list of WAM articles (spanish language) the old one is still there. Its name is "Batalla de Hakodate*" (with an asterisk, not to be mistaken with "Batalla de Hakodate", wich is the good one that deserves to be in the list). It's easy to see because it redirects to a blank page. Would you mind to fix it please? Thanks in advance.--Patxi A (talk) 18:41, 27 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Does this tool has any issue in opera browser, one of the participants from nepali Wikipedia complaining that the link of tool only shows white page. Any solution. nShrestha (talk) 14:41, 29 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Nirjal stha, the newest Opera versions are fully supported, a white page is shown for browsers like Opera 12 (released five years ago, in 2011).

Error 500 when trying to change a vote

ScreenShot Ghazala Javed.png

Sorry for bugging you once again. One of the organizers on pt-wiki (Guilherme Moura) is having trouble with changing his vote (previously no to yes) on two particular articles: pt:Ghazala Javed (submitted by Luiz F. Fritz) and pt:Força Aérea do Azerbaijão (submitted by Gato Preto). The screencap on the right corresponds to the error message shown when he tries to change his vote.

If correcting the problem would be deemed too difficult or unnecessary, could you please manually re-add the two contributions under the aforementioned editors? Thank you very much! --ArgonSim (talk) 15:43, 2 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi ArgonSim, it should be fixed now, please try it out. Le Loy 08:25, 4 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Asian Month and "/Late Submit" backlog

Hi Le Loy, sorry for knocking you like this. You see there is a huge backlog at Wikipedia Asian Month/late submit. So if these go to the tool then there is a huge chance that you'll have to add some more names to Wikipedia Asian Month/2016/Qualified Editors/Mass and Wikipedia Asian Month/2016/Qualified Editors. Also as per as I'm concerned there is also possibility that the topper can be changed in some wikis. So please look into this. Thanks in advance. :) --Pratyya (Hello!) 03:57, 4 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Pratyya Ghosh, sorry for the delay, I'll fix it soon :-) Le Loy 08:14, 4 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Is it okay to fix typo error in earlier submissions?

Hi Le Loy, as the topic mentioned, shortly before the editathon ended I submitted an article but wrote the article's name in Traditional Chinese - it should be in Simplified Chinese. (That means 「哈薩克斯坦旅遊業」 is wrong, but “哈萨克斯坦旅游业” is the correct name.) Such an error resulted in my article's rejection by judges, due to the tool's sensitivity of Chinese characters. The same problem occurred last year, but the problem is not serious as the related article is not a submission on the last day. I thought that fixing such an minor (as I think) error should not be counted as a late submission (because the objective of both acts are exactly the same) and it should be allowed on discretion. Thus I would like to raise the question above and request for a amendment of my entry if possible. Спасибо, --Spring Roll Conan ( Teahouse | Contributions ) 08:36, 4 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hello Le Loy, I saw you notice the article th:แม่น้ำราวี has been created before November 1, 2016, But I created it around 1.00am in Thai time zone (UTC+7). For this reason, Is the article qualified?

Thanks --Anonimeco (talk) 12:57, 4 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Anonimeco, usually all the contests are held in UTC, and creating articles in advance (working on them before the event starts) is not allowed. Since you have 3 articles already, I think we might make an exception if the rest of your articles are accepted. Athikhun.suw, B20180, Taweetham, could you please check Anonimeco's contributions to the Asian Month? Le Loy 21:43, 4 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Hi, everyone. I understand that this is about the difference between two time zones, and page history is based on UTC time. According to the statistics here, the article th:แม่น้ำราวี was created on 31 October around 6:41 pm. UTC time, which is equivalent to 1:41 am. on 1 November Bangkok time (GMT+7). I believe that the 1 hr and 40 min time span after the midnight was enough to write an article of that length. Ping to Anonimeco. I checked again all his contributions this year (also last year's), and they all were of good quality. I think we can make an exception here. :) --Athikhun.suw (talk) 01:16, 5 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Tool support

Good Afternoon Le Loy, We Nepali Wikipedia Community are going to organize one small one day program called "100 Women editathon" in Nepal on 08 December 2016. This program is supported by Wikimedia UK and going to be organized with the joint collaboration of Nepali Wikipedia & BBC Nepal.

  3. Who are the jury members?
  4. Is there any template to add to the talkpage after the article is submitted? Does it have any parameters?
  5. What is the marks' system? In WAM it was 'accepted/not accepted', but you can also have additional points or penalty points. Le Loy 10:04, 7 December 2016 (UTC) Oops, pinged the wrong username. Nirjal stha, see above. Le Loy 06:35, 8 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Ле Лой Thank you for the reply Answers for each questions:

  1. I am only from tamil wikipedia. Not Nepali and in tamil the editathon's name is விக்கிக்கோப்பை-2017
  2. The articles should contain minimum 50 words and have references. Users can only submit articles from First january to 31st january 2017. and Jurys can give points to articles still february 10, 2017. Requests-And in the tool there should be comment facilities and accept, not accept facilities, and there should be a facility to put the points for a particular article of a user. and the points should be shown n the editahon.
  3. Now, I am only the jury. If others join I will inform you.
  4. Here is that template
  5. * For every articles which are more than 50 words 5 points is given.
  • And for more each fifty words 2 points is given (eg-if the article contain 150 words 50 words + 50 words + 50 words=basic 5 points + extra 2 points for more fifty words + extra 2 points for more fifty words:- totally 9 points for 150 words)

Too, Can I submit the articles of other users? as sometimes they may not know how to use that tool or some other problems. And once again thank you and I hope your tool will be more useful to our competition. And I am waiting for your reply.

    • Oh, Tamil, not Nepali, sorry! I've just copied it from above... Speaking of 'submitting the articles of other users' -- I'll try to implement that in December, but I'm not sure if I can make it in time. In the worst case you could just email me the articles to add ( or post the articles to some page like Wikipedia Asian Month/late submit.

Are updates to Wiki Asia Month Articles for Kn-wiki allowed?

Hi Le Long, I had contributed few articles to kn-wiki, as part of Wiki Asian Month. I found some new info to one of them? Points are yet to be allotted to the articles.

О включении Фонтана в очередной локальный конкурс Саха Википедии

Кафедра стилистики и перевода якутского языка СВФУ объявила конкурс среди студентов на написание статей в Саха Википедию. По их замыслу, считать нужно будет статьи внесенные до 30 декабря, написанные студентами, на определенные три темы. Сейчас я формирую страничку конкурса. Я бы хотел, чтобы Ваш замечательный Фонтан поработал и на этом нашем конкурсе. Получится ли?

По процедуре. Видимо, идентифицировать студентов будет жюри из преподавателей. А вносить статьи через Фонтан будут как сами студенты, так и администраторы проекта. Кстати, прошу включить таковую возможность и на текущем конкурсе, ибо новичкам сложно даже размещать собственно сами статьи. Доступ на вписывание дайте мне и администратору User:Egerman. Спасибо! --HalanTul (talk) 09:04, 19 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Здравствуйте, Николай! Конечно получится, с вас список требований к конкурсу :-) Возможности добавлять статьи от имени других участников сейчас нет, это могу делать только я. Если жюри будет присылать мне статьи и имена участников, которые эти статьи создали/дополнили, то я в течение 1—2 дней буду их добавлять в марафон. Можно сделать отдельную подстраницу в конкурсе, можно писать мне прямо сюда — как вам удобнее. Le Loy 23:09, 19 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Здравствуйте! О, не хотелось бы слишком докучать просьбами... ладно, сделаем подстраницы на оба конкурса. Спасибо! --HalanTul (talk) 07:58, 20 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Не стесняйтесь совершенно, я не перетруждаюсь! Le Loy 08:31, 20 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Спасибо! Условия студенческого конкурса решили сделать мягкими: требования к объему 1000 байт или больше 100 слов (статья принимается если соблюдено любое из этих условий). Статья не обязательно должна быть создана в период конкурса (т.е. можно дополнять старую). Автор должен быть зарегистрирован в текущем календарном году (это не обязательный для Фонтана параметр), и являться студентом СВФУ (этот параметр для жюри), соответствие теме и прочие качественные параметры статьи тоже на откуп жюри. Срок окончания пока определен 15 январем 2017 г., возможно изменение. --HalanTul (talk) 01:15, 23 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Николай, а начало когда? Le Loy 02:03, 23 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Tool Support for Wikisource Editthon

Hi, In every year, Wikisource community organized Wikisource Proofreading contest. ( sample here). We are bengali Wikisource organizsed the same and maintain the same rule and point system. Can it be done with fountain. So we need one tools for Wikisource. Jayantanth (talk) 15:05, 26 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Jayantanth, it can be done with Fountain, the only concern is: Fountain can't assign marks from 1 article to several users. We can make 2 different editathons for primary proofreaders and secondary proofreaders. Or we could limit the number of proofreaders to 1 per page. Which way would serve your purpose better? Also, could you please provide answers to the following questions:
  1. What's the editathon's name in Bengali language?
  2. Who are the jury members?
  3. Is there any template to add to the talkpage after the text is submitted? Does it have any parameters?
  4. What is the start/end time? Le Loy 23:27, 28 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Ле Лой, thanks for letting us know, that Fountain can be helpful for Wikisource contest. It would be great if Fountain could assign marks for single page to different users as at least 2 users are needed to complete a page (primary proofreading and secondary proofreading i.e. validating). Also sometimes more people are needed just for primary proofreading, because some pages are too complex to handle by one user. Also sometimes, vandalized proofreading steps shall be reverted back, which will also revert the point given to the user. So, if there is any possible way for Fountain to assign marks for single page to different users, that would be the best possible way for us. Otherwise, we need to find an alternative. The answers of your questions are as follows:

  1. The name of the editathon is উইকিসংকলন ১০ প্রতিযোগিতা
  2. The Jury members are 1) User:Jayantanth, 2) User:‎Hrishikes 3) User:Bodhisattwa
  3. No templates are there to add to the talk page after the text is submitted
  4. The contest starts on January 1, 2017 and ends on July 31, 2017. -- Bodhisattwa (talk) 06:20, 29 December 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Hello - I am Srishti, developer advocate at the Wikimedia Foundation’s Technical Collaboration team. On behalf of my team, I would like to congratulate you for being accepted for the community-led projects grant for the Fountain project. One of our team’s focus is to help volunteer developers build features in collaboration with our communities. To do so, we organize developer outreach programs and events such as Google Summer of Code, Outreachy, and Hackathons. You can learn more about them from their respective pages. We wanted to reach out to you and see if there is any additional assistance, which you might need for connecting with our community of volunteer developers. Let us know if you require any help in getting things done for your projects through some of the programs we support, in finding volunteer developers, and in connecting with any of the Wikimedia's tech teams for questions or support! We wish you good luck with your project, and we look forward to hearing some exciting updates at the end of this year! - SSethi_(WMF) 6:35 PM, January 23rd 2017 (PST)

Hi Srishti, thank you! I will :-) Le Loy 03:54, 24 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Николай Эйхвальд

Хотел бы уточнить у вас как у администратора русской википедии: почему высказывания участника:Николай Эйхвальд не оцениваются также строго? А точнее совсем никак. Он же обсуждает участников, а не статьи.--Леонид Макаров (talk) 05:27, 28 February 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Awaiting for your kind reply--Shriheeran (talk) 09:16, 10 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Hi Shriheeran, currently the Fountain can't check if the article comes from a certain list and it cannot say if someone added 600 bytes to the article. The rest is easy, check it here. Le Loy 03:38, 11 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Request for the judging tool for editathon Javanese Wikipedia

Hi, I'm Wirjadisastra, Javanese Wikipedia (jvwiki) admin. Last year, I managed WAM for Javanese Wikipedia and found your judging tool impressive yet simple! Currently, I and two others are planning an edit-a-thon in jvwiki which will last from April 2017 to February 2018. We are thinking if we can use your tool for our event. Is it possible to apply the tool for event outside WAM? If it is possible, could it be fitted with our rules (regarding number of words & number of references used)? Thank you in advance Wirjadisastra (talk) 04:07, 21 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]

  • Hi Wirjadisastra, it is abslutely possible and actually very easy. I need you to provide me with:
    1. What's the editathon's name in your language?
    2. Who are the jury members?
    3. Is there any template to add to the talkpage after the text is submitted? Does it have any parameters?
    4. What is the exact start/end time?
    5. What is the point system? The options are: 1) 'Yes/no' (like in WAM), 2) '1 point for every N characters/words/symbols', or 3) something elaborate, for example, several buttons with different points. Le Loy 04:10, 21 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Here they are:
  1. Editathon's name: Wiki Mrebawani II
  2. Jury members: User:Wirjadisastra (me), User:Notanotheramy, User:Danangtrihartanto
  3. No template put to the talkpage after text submitted
  4. Start time: 15 April 2017, end time: 15 February 2018
  5. Yes/No. The jury will judge based on number of words & number of references, is it possible to show number of words & number of references used, instead of bytes? Wirjadisastra (talk) 05:14, 21 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]
  1. Wirjadisastra, it's possible to show the number of words, but (currently) not the number of references. Also are you accepting only new articles or articles created before (and improved) as well? Le Loy 05:53, 21 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Okay, only number of words is okay. We can still count the references manually. For the upcoming event, we only accept new articles. Wirjadisastra (talk) 13:48, 23 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Wirjadisastra: cool, done! Have a nice editathon :-) [[User:|Le Loy]] 08:29, 1 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Word counting doesn't work

Hi Ле Лой, I hope you have time to check this problem. The word counter of the tool doesn't work for the following articles: jv:Material Girls, jv:Beno Siang Pamungkas, jv:Jumbleng.

Hi! I can't find Fountain code, is it public in some platform like github? I think that it's not necessary to explain the benefits of free software. If you upload your code, maybe somebody will add new features. Congrats for your app.--KRLS (talk) 20:03, 21 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Article Creater

Hi! I am an active Tamil Wikipedian. We wish to create many articles without the help of bots. So, we need a tool which collects data and construct simple sentences according to the given data. Like, Name:-_____ Birthdate:-_______. Then it should make sentences like. _____ is an astronomer. He was born on _______. Is there are any tools like this? Or is this possible to create any tools like this. If yes, then we can create many articles about people, places, films, rivers, etc. Can you design a tool for us?

Не добавляется статья на fountain

К моему большому удивлению и сожалению, не добавляется на fountain доработанная мной статья w:ru:Дмитрий Романович (князь брянский), которую я нашёл на ВП:КУЛ и доработал в рамках текущего марафона «КУЛ должен быть очищен V» (см.w:ru:ВП:К улучшению/18 декабря 2016#Дмитрий Романович (князь брянский)). --Dghor (talk 16:05, 22 June 2017

Здравствуйте, Dghor, это моя ошибка, попробуйте ещё раз. Если не успеете до конца марафона, я внесу руками за вас. Le Loy 21:44, 22 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]

А можно внести руками w:ru:Лагоц Ортис, Джузеппе? - совсем немного вроде не успел… --Dghor (talk) 00:18, 23 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Хорошо, я думаю, что 13 минут можно простить =) Le Loy 00:26, 23 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Большое Вам за это искреннее спасибо! Подобное отношение буквально воодушевляет!
А вот, в случае со ст.w:ru:Подсудок я, в данный момент нахожусь буквально в недоумении.
Это была моя самая первая спасённая статья на КУЛ. И поначалу меня также даже очень воодушевило, что когда я её улучшил, то на с. w:ru:Википедия:К улучшению/26 мая 2017 получил отзыв «Изрядно дополнено» [6]. Текст показался мне и самому довольно связным и последовательным и даже показывает развитие термина в хронологическом измерении, тем более, с источниками. Это и сподвигло меня к дальнейшему участию в марафоне КУЛ. И я возлагал на эту статью определённые надежды («наверное, мне дадут за неё, хотя бы, 2 балла»).
А вот потом я, напротив, довольно сильно расстроился. Ну, во-первых, сперва Maxinvestigator оценил её не как «Изрядно дополненную», а как «просто дополненную». А потом и вы меня «просто добили»: оказывается, вообще «(статья не дополнена) Отправлено на КУЛ после начала марафона». Это мне вообще не понятно, что значит. Ведь, как и было сказано на с.w:ru:Википедия:КУЛ должен быть очищен/V, я выбрал статью из списка требующих улучшения и устранил претензии к ней, изложенные в номинации. Что значит фраза «Отправлено на КУЛ после начала марафона»? — Ведь это же не после моей доработки статья была отправлена на доработку (что свидетельствовало бы о низком или неудовлетворительном качестве доработки). По результатам моей работы с неё был снят шаблон КУЛ, и сейчас претензии с неё сняты. Доработка статьи не требуется. Т.е. статья была фактически доработана. Непредвзятые участники даже оценивают мой вклад как довольно «изрядный».
Нигде в правилах марафона - ни на w:ru:Википедия:КУЛ должен быть очищен, ни на w:ru:Википедия:КУЛ должен быть очищен/V не сказано, что в ходе марафона не оцениваются доработанные статьи, добавленные на КУЛ после начала марафона. Если бы я знал, что так будет, я просто не брался бы за доработку этой статьи (к чему тогда терять силы и время). Это какой-то абсурд. Статья выбрана в соответствии с указаниями положений марафона, доработана, с неё снят шаблон КУЛ, доработка статьи не требуется, а доработанной не считается. Никаких оговорок по этому поводу в правилах марафона КУЛ нет. О таких «ловушках» следует чётко оговаривать в правилах. Так нечестно. Чувствую себя обманутым.
--Dghor (talk) 23:21, 28 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Хмм, Dghor, но ведь в правилах прямо на странице w:ru:Википедия:КУЛ должен быть очищен/V написано «При начислении баллов учитываются только статьи, номинированные к улучшению до начала конкурса и доработанные со дня его начала по день окончания». Разве это недостаточно чётко? Если у вас есть более конкретный вариант формулировки, давайте обсудим его! Le Loy 23:24, 28 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Даааааа… теперь-то я увидел эти формулировки, вернее, осознал их… Но:
1) Формулировки, действительно, нечёткие, поскольку участник примеряет на себя всё то, что его имеет к нему отношение: всё, что касается выбора статей, правил доработки, сроков начала и окончания, а всё, что касается «начисления баллов» имеет отношение к членам жюри. Поэтому как-то даже мысли не возникает, что это может как-либо ограничить выбор статей для доработки для участия в марафоне. (Это уже "двойное перенаправление" и требует "исправления ботами".) Считаю, что при таком подходе следовало бы дополнить правила марафона фразами: «При выборе статей для доработки обратите внимание, что в соответствии с правилами марафона не начисляются баллы (не оценивается доработка) для статей, добавленных на КУЛ после даты начала марафона». Или: «В марафоне не участвуют статьи, внесенные на КУЛ позднее такой-то даты <и указать последний день перед началом марафона> »
2) Причем, бывает, что вынесение на КУЛ обновляется и тогда статья появляется вверху списка КУЛ. Какой тогда в этом смысл? Как тогда участнику марафона определить, была ли эта статья вынесена на КУЛ давно или появилась сейчас. Это надо целые "раскопки проводить".
3) Или, если цель марафона действительно "подчистить хвосты", то следует при объявлении марафона чётко указывать: «В марафоне участвуют статьи, внесенные на КУЛ не позднее такой-то даты».
4) В целом считаю такой подход абсурдным. Ведь люди так или иначе дорабатывают статьи на КУЛ, т.е. не дают ему разрастаться, что и является главной целью марафона. --Dghor (talk) 00:22, 29 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Dghor, мы обсудим с жюри ваши предложения, спасибо. Возможно действительно включим все статьи на следующий раз. Le Loy 00:57, 29 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Ну, ладно. И напоследок развёрнутые уточнения в тему. Кстати, рискованно выбирать для доработки самые последние статьи из списка КУЛ. Я заметил, что КУЛ не перестаёт обновляться даже после начала марафона. И статьи в последней строчке КУЛ постоянно меняются ("подчищаются") — не только исключаются полностью доработанные строки, но и могут быть случаи, когда статьи переносятся в самый верх таблицы КУЛ с новой датой вынесения на КУЛ. Иногда бывают курьёзы, когда уже взятая в доработку статья может появиться обновлённой на КУЛ в самом верху списка КУЛ и, формально, выпасть из условий марафона. в том числе, и по этой причине установление ограничений к участию статей в марафоне по дате их вынесения на КУЛ является довольно абсурдным. --Dghor (talk) 01:21, 29 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Причём, вот ещё что: на момент начала марафона — вынесенные на КУЛ вчера статьи дорабатывать можно, а сегодняшние нет. А на момент конца марафона это уже практически статьи месячной давности (но, не дай Бог, ты ошибёшься на день и возьмёшь в доработку не ту статью). Так в чём же смысл подобных ограничений по дате вынесения на КУЛ? --Dghor (talk) 01:36, 29 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Dghor, проблемы с переносом на самом деле нет: Фонтан ищет в истории время первой простановки шаблона. Смысл ограничения на заранее вынесенные статьи был в том, чтобы люди работали с тем, что уже есть, а не выносили себе статьи и тут же дорабатывали их. Возможно есть какой-то более логичный способ избежать этого, но он мне пока не пришёл в голову. Le Loy 02:48, 29 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Request for the judging tool for editathon in the Indonesian Wikipedia

Hi Le Loy, I'm Wirjadisastra, admin in Javanese Wikipedia & user in Indonesian Wikipedia. I wish you are doing well.

The Wikimedia Indonesia needs your help about creating a judging tool for an edit-a-thon held during this August. The event is called Bulan Sejarah Indonesia (Indonesian History Month). Further information is here (in Indonesian).

The specification of the judging tool is below:

  1. What's the editathon's name in your language?
    Bulan Sejarah Indonesia
  2. Who are the jury members?
    User:Beeyan & User:Rachmat04
  3. Is there any template to add to the talkpage after the text is submitted? Does it have any parameters?
  4. What is the exact start/end time?
    1 – 31 August 2017
  5. What is the point system? The options are: 1) 'Yes/no' (like in WAM), 2) '1 point for every N characters/words/symbols', or 3) something elaborate, for # example, several buttons with different points.
    Yes/no (like in WAM), at least 100 words

I am sorry if this request comes to you all of a sudden. I know you are busy right now & you need not to rush in creating this, but I hope you have time to create this tool before August 17th. Thank you in advance. Wirjadisastra (talk) 06:17, 1 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Wirjadisastra, I'm good, thanks. The editathon is ready, you can find it here. Have a good edit-a-thon! Le Loy 03:58, 2 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you so much Le Loy!--Beeyan (talk) 06:31, 4 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, Le Loy. I find your tools interesting and very helpful to facilitate our editathon in idwiki. ;-) But, there's something I would like to know more, how we manage to remove a submitted article from the tools? This is happened because there are two articles have been deleted on idwiki because of rough translations and, somehow, an idwiki sysop deleted it. Later, another user recreated the same article and he improved it and we would like to add +1 score to his work. Unfortunately, this is impossible because the article is still in other user's submitted list. Should you need any details about this, I'm happy to provide it. Thank you, ··· 🌸 Rachmat04 · 08:16, 23 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Rachmat04, I'm very happy to hear it :-) Please give me the titles of the articles you want to delete from your editathon, I'll delete them (it will likely happen at 1 September since I'm travelling at the moment and I don't have access to my usual tools). Hopefully I'll roll out the ability to delete articles for the jury soon and you'd be able to do it yourself. Le Loy 09:56, 23 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Please remove these articles from the tools: id:Sejarah Papua Barat (if it's possible, please move this to User:Pierrewee's list, instead of removing it) and id:Jeda kuasa Perancis dan Inggris di Hindia Belanda. Thank you for your help, and have a nice trip. ··· 🌸 Rachmat04 · 14:34, 23 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Rachmat04, Jeda kuasa Perancis dan Inggris di Hindia Belanda -- deleted, Sejarah Papua Barat -- moved to Pierrewee. Le Loy 23:45, 31 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Request for fixing the end-date of the judging tool for editathon Javanese Wikipedia

Hi Ле Лой, several months ago I requested a judging tool for an editathon ing Javanese Wikipedia based on this agenda. After some considerations with other jury members, we decided that we actually need 2 (two) jugding tools for the whole competition, which is divided into two periods. We need two judging tools for better records on the numbers of created articles.

The current judging tool is for the ongoing first period. The oncoming second period is going to be held afterwards. In the oncoming second-period competition, the first-period participants can rejoin, but the article-counter must 0 (zero) and does not continue from the first-period counter. If we continue using the current judging tool for the second period, the first-period participants joining the second-period competition will automatically be ahead of the new participants in numbers of created articles, which is unfair.

So for now, could you help fixing the end-date for the current tool to 14 September 2017? I will also request the second judging tool soon if possible. Or, do you have advice for this? Thank you in advance Wirjadisastra (talk) 04:52, 14 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Wirjadisastra, sure. The end-date was set. Will the second part be the same as the first one, except for dates? (same jury, same rules) Le Loy 23:58, 15 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, the everything is the same (including the name of the competition), except for the date, which is from 23 September 2017 until 22 February 2018. Thank you so much! Wirjadisastra (talk) 06:16, 16 August 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Question: Can the judging tool counting the character excluding references and templates?

Hi Le Loi. The Vietnamese wikipedia is about to hold an article writing competition, but our intended formula is: 3 for each new article + 1 for each KB added, but excluding references and templates. In addition, we only count >=2000 bytes added of content, i.e., if the new article is 1999 bytes or less (after excluding the ref and templates), that article's point is zero. Can your tool do that? Thank you for your time. Regards, Tuanminh01 (talk) 05:51, 10 October 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Tuanminh01, sure. I can make a 'New article' button that adds 3 points + a control that allows you to select from 1 to 100 additional points. Before I can create the editathon, please put answers to my questions below:
  1. What's the editathon's name in Vietnamese language?
  2. Who are the jury members?
  3. Is there any template to add to the talkpage after the text is submitted? Does it have any parameters?
  4. What is the exact start/end time?
Thank you in advance. Le Loy 23:51, 10 October 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Hi DanGong, it's not a fault, it was a deliberate decision to encourage users writing coherent text, that's why Fountain ignores tables, comments, links, quotes & citations etc. Le Loy 03:45, 5 November 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Please see (When counted, nouns take one of a small set.....), Bengali singular & plural form is bit different than english. usually it's [number]টা or টি [word]. for human its জন, sometime no টা/টি/জন (same as english) e.g. 1 byte = ১ বাইট; 5 bytes = ৫ বাইট (usually in bengali s translated as সমূহ/গুলি/গুলো but for this word no টা/টি/গুলি) same also for min, sec, hour (1 second= ১ সেকেন্ড, 5 seconds = ৫ সেকেন্ড). I know i didn't explain well but trust me, XXX bytes = XXX বাইট isn't error. --Aftabuzzaman (talk) 01:32, 2 November 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Aftabuzzaman, OK I see now. Thank you, done! Please check. Le Loy 03:40, 2 November 2017 (UTC)[reply]
