Wikisource User Group[edit]

Hi! Thanks for your interest in the Wikisource User Group, to get things moving, Aubrey and me we were thinking of doing these tasks and hopefully you can give us a hand too :)

  • Translate this WsUG invitation (thanks to Aarti for writing it!) into the languages you know
  • The invitation is meant to be delivered to this list of wikisourcerors, check if we should add someone else!
  • Read the new version of the WsUG page, and, if you feel like, add your thoughts about what should we do as a group on the talk page.

What do you think it's the first priority as a group of wikisource users, and what would you like to see accomplished? We'd very much like to understand what wikisourcerors want :-) --Micru (talk) 14:36, 19 July 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Wikisource User Group and Community Poll[edit]

Hi Alex. You receive this message because you signed the Wikisource User Group page: the User Group, as you probably know, is being evaluated by the AffCom, and they asked some questions that involve all interested users (as you are :-). Could you please take a moment to read these questions and answers for yourself? It is very important. Moreover, make sure you read and review the Wikisource community poll: we would like it to be filled in by as many users as possible, and we need really your help for that. If you want and can translate it, please write it here. Please contact us if you want to help: Wikisource is an amazing project, and it can be much more amazing if we all work together :-) Thanks! --Aubrey (talk) 08:55, 24 September 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decitions[edit]

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

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

I'm notifying you because you participated in one of several relevant discussions. -Pete F (talk) 21:58, 20 August 2014 (UTC)[reply]

@Peteforsyth:Thanks to notifying me. I'm deeply uncertain about the whole thing, so I'll not sign that letter. But I'll disable MediaWiki viewer - I feel uncomfortable with it. --Alex brollo (talk) 21:48, 21 August 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Superprotect status[edit]

Dear Alex brollo, since you are an administrator on a wiki from which no user participated in this discussion, I'd like to make sure you are aware of some recent events which may alter what the Wikimedia Foundation lets you do on your wiki: Superprotect.

Inspire Campaign on content curation & review[edit]

I've recently launched an Inspire Campaign to encourage new ideas focusing on content review and curation in Wikimedia projects. Wikimedia volunteers collaboratively manage vast repositories of knowledge, and we’re looking for your ideas about how to manage that knowledge to make it more meaningful and accessible. We invite you to participate and submit ideas, so please get involved today! The campaign runs until March 28th.

All proposals are welcome - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is welcome - your skills and experience can help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign to improve review and curation tasks so that we can make our content more meaningful and accessible! I JethroBT (WMF) 05:38, 29 February 2016 (UTC)[reply]

volontario OTRS[edit]

Ciao! Stavo guardando i profili di utenze it-N non attive troppo su itWikipedia ma competenti in altri progetti. Volevo sapere hai mai pensato di fare una capatina su OTRS/Volunteering a dare un'occhiata.

Spiego meglio: da anni parlando con i volontari ci sono borbottii sulle croniche mancanze del servizio OTRS. Anche infornate di volontari mesi fa non hanno cambiato molto, sentendo in giro, la percezione. Personalmente penso che ogni utente esperto (e da sysop di copyright ne sai certo qualcosa) deve essere il benvenuto. Se i singoli volontari non hanno tempo di essere molto presenti l'unico modo è chiamarne il più possibile. Ti contatto come già fatto con altri per suggerirti se fossi interessato a farsi avanti senza troppi problemi, il tuo profilo è anche migliore di altri candidati.

Pensa come sarebbe più semplice trovando una violazione in buona fede sulle piattaforme dove operi se tu potessi aiutare l'utente a sottoporre una richiesta OTRS in tempo decente. Del materiale utile potrebbe essere recuperato, delle utenze informate meglio su come procedere per il futuro. L'informazione circola poco ed è difficile impostare campagne alle utenze, e aggiornare le linee guida su tutte le piattaforme. Già è difficile se una spiegazione è scritta in modo lacunoso, figurati se non c'è proprio. Inoltre quasi tutti i volontari OTRS vengono da itWikipedia, poco da altri progetti in italiano, e a maggior ragione i progetti più "periferici" in italiano hanno bisogno di utenze che facciano da "ponte" per il servizio OTRS.--Alexmar983 (talk) 09:01, 29 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]

@Alexmar983: Ti ringrazio della fiducia; ma soffro di una fastidiosa allergia per ogni norma e regolamento, mi riempio di bolle pruriginose.... sto su wikisource, prevalentemente, proprio perchè là è (quasi) tutto PD e pure privo di filosofie POV-NPOV.  :-) --Alex brollo (talk) 18:12, 29 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]
ah le allergie... se senti di altri meno allergici però spargi la voce.
per curiosità invece su wikisource e altri progetti come state messi con il cambio di nome utente nel nuovo sistema SUL? Tutto chiaro? A occhio è circa un annetto o giù di lì che non nominiamo Global renamers che parlano italiano it>3 e c'è sempre attenzione anche a includere i progetti minori. Fa venire le bolle anche quello? ;)--Alexmar983 (talk) 06:13, 30 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]
@Alexmar983: Si certo (le bolle intendo). Tutti i miei pochi e attempati neuroni sono occupati a cercare di capire javascript, python e Lua, per i (pochissimi) casi in cui ci serve un rename utente se ne occupa il nostro burocrate OrbiliusMagister che lo fa in modo magistrale. --Alex brollo (talk) 08:40, 30 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]
OrbiliusMagister è ancora abbastanza attivo? lo vedevo così poco negli ultimi tempi. Forse dovrei suggerire a lui l'OTRS.--Alexmar983 (talk) 10:58, 30 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Molto attivo e molto attento ai problemi che invece io detesto è anche Accurimbono; vulcanico, e profondamente appassionato ai testi antichi e alle novità, Xavier121. Aubrey è molto impegnato, ma chissà, forse l'argomento lo potrebbe interessare. --Alex brollo (talk) 15:00, 30 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Mi sa che lascerò un messaggi ai wikisourciani in bar locale per sapere se sono edotti di qualche flag cross wiki che possa essere loro di interesse. Meglio essere sicuri che tutti siano al corrente di varie possibilità. ma se siete wikisourciani e topi di biblioteca, posso chiamarvi wikisorci?--Alexmar983 (talk) 04:25, 31 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Mi spiace deluderti :-) ma "wikisorcio" non è un neologismo, come non lo era la parola "petaloso" recente tormentone sul web: s:it:Wikisource:Bar/Archivio/2008.07; anch'io l'ho usata (da qualche parte, non ricordo dove) --Alex brollo (talk) 05:37, 31 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Credo che tutti i progetti aperti sia il più promettente per le citazioni. Dopo WikiRef, Wikireference...--Alexmar983 (talk) 03:07, 5 May 2016 (UTC)[reply]

@Alexmar983: Non capisco bene.... come avrai capito sono un tattico, non uno stratega. Se son rose fioriranno, e poi studieremo come coglierle. Ci sentiamo fra un paio d'anni :-) --Alex brollo (talk) 07:37, 5 May 2016 (UTC)[reply]
non avevo ricevuto il ping. In realtà la conferenza a breve organizzata sul tema fa sospettare che si intravedano dei boccioli. Nel caso ti farò sapere.--Alexmar983 (talk) 11:02, 8 May 2016 (UTC)[reply]
@Alexmar983: Wikiquote, WikiRef, Wikireference... adesso Wikicite.... in medicina, quando ci sono molte medicine per la stessa malattia significa che nessuna funziona. Al momento sono immerso nel tentativo di forzare i pdf di Internet Archive producendo i relativi djvu, una banalità.... Ma i miei neuroni sono un pochino sovraccarichi. Sono neuroni vecchi e stanchi (ho appena festeggiato il mio 64 compleanno... facendo volare un aquilone molto, molto in alto) -- 18:48, 8 May 2016 (UTC)[reply]

L'accogliente Wikisource[edit]

WMF non ha ancora capito quello che tu vai dicendo da anni, cioè che Wikisource è ottima per tutti quelli che non riescono a integrarsi nelle labirintiche procedure di Wikipedia... Sperano ancora di trovare una soluzione tecnologica per costringere comunque la gente a contribuire in Wikipedia. Nemo 06:08, 28 May 2016 (UTC)[reply]

@Nemo bis: VFSS, sarebbe un bel principio pediano: Vietato Far Sentire Stupidi. :-) --Alex brollo (talk) 16:47, 28 May 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Through June, we’re organizing an Inspire Campaign to encourage and support new ideas focusing on addressing harassment toward Wikimedia contributors. The 2015 Harassment Survey has shown evidence that harassment in various forms - name calling, threats, discrimination, stalking, and impersonation, among others - is pervasive. Available methods and systems to deal with harassment are also considered to be ineffective. These behaviors are clearly harmful, and in addition, many individuals who experience or witness harassment participate less in Wikimedia projects or stop contributing entirely.

Proposals in any language are welcome during the campaign - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is appreciated, and collaboration is encouraged - your skills and experience may help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign so that we can work together to develop ideas around this important and difficult issue. With thanks,

Next steps for the wish “confirmation prompt for the rollback link”[edit]

Hello, a while ago you participated in a feedback round about a proposal how accidental clicks on the rollback link could be avoided. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts and ideas!
Looking at the feedback and the rollback situation in different wikis, the development team decided how to approach this wish: As a default, most wikis won’t have a confirmation. But users who wish to have one, can enable it in their preferences, which will add a confirmation prompt to the rollback link on the diff page and on the list pages. The prompt won’t be a pop-up, but an inline prompt like for the thanks confirmation. You can read more about the planned solution and what influenced this decision on the project page. -- Best, Johanna Strodt (WMDE) (talk) 09:50, 16 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Re:Presentazione djvu[edit]

Ciao Alex, scusa come sempre il ritardo. Nel corso della presentazione potrai proiettare, quindi nessun problema. Dovresti, però, comunicarci prima i siti ai quali ti collegherai, in modo da comunicarlo all'Università dell'Insubria per evitare eventuali "blocchi" alla navigazione. Fammi sapere. --CristianNX (talk) 07:24, 23 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Ciao Alex. Grazie per le indicazioni, comunque ho visto che hai già segnalato correttamente i siti nella talk del programma. Non dovrebbero esserci problemi, quindi direi che è tutto ok. Grazie mille, e per qualsiasi cosa resto a disposizione. --CristianNX (talk) 09:36, 24 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]

The Community Wishlist Survey[edit]


You get this message because you’ve previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey. I just wanted to let you know that this year’s survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until 11 November: Community Wishlist Survey 2019.

You can vote from November 16 to November 30. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won’t send out a separate reminder to you about that. /Johan (WMF) 11:24, 30 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Community Wishlist Survey 2020[edit]


You are getting this message because you've previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey, in either the Wikisource or Wiktionary categories. I wanted to let you know that this year's survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until November 11. Unlike previous years, we are only accepting proposals for non-Wikipedia content projects with no dedicated teams (i.e., Wikibooks, Wiktionary, Wikiquote, Wikisource, Wikiversity, Wikispecies, Wikivoyage, and Wikinews). You can learn more on the survey page.

You can vote on proposals from November 20 to December 2. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won't send out a separate reminder to you about that. We look forward to your participation. Thank you! IFried (WMF) (talk) 18:52, 22 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Naming contest support[edit]

Hi. Thank you for participating with your edit at one entry. However, we are using a different system for this vote. Please could you rank all of the proposals, either using the blue-button (gadget) at /Names page or manually at /Votes page? Sorry for the confusion, and Thank you! Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 20:10, 6 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

(_AT_) OK! Thank you. --Alex brollo (talk) 18:56, 7 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
