New community space for IdeaLab on Connect
Hi folks. If you're receiving this message, you've contributed to IdeaLab or an Inspire Campaign this year. Thanks for participating to develop ideas and review ones from other Wikimedians.
We are preparing some changes to IdeaLab and Inspire Campaigns. One of these changes is a new community space on Connect, where Wikimedians can find each other based on common activities or skills, and ask questions about the space. You are invited to join this community space for IdeaLab, especially if you would ever consider needing to find contributors with certain skills (like design or project management) or would like to offer your skills to others in our movement. To join, please proceed to Connect/IdeaLab and click on the "Add yourself" button on the right. Thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) 19:53, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
Do you have an idea about how to measure the health of your community? Do you want to review ideas that others have submitted? Through August 10th, we are inviting ideas on how to capture the well-being of Wikimedia communities, in terms of matters like conflict resolution, effective content creation, and being able to contribute in a collaborative environment. Ideas can be focused on either quantitative techniques, such as gathering raw data, or qualitative techniques, like surveying contributors. If you are submitting an idea, guidance is available for how to move your idea into implementation, such as through a grant or starting a Phabricator task to engage with developers.
Welcome to the Months of African Cinema!
The AfroCine Project welcomes you to October, the first out of the two months which has been dedicated to improving contents that centre around the cinema of Africa, the Caribbean, and the diaspora.
This is a global online edit-a-thon, which is happening in at least 5 language editions of Wikipedia (en, he, es, it, bn) and Wikidata. Join us in this exciting venture, by helping to create or expand articles which are connected to this scope.
On English Wikipedia, we would be recognizing Users who are able to achieve the following:
- Overall winner (1st, 2nd, 3rd places)
- Country Winners
- Diversity winner
- High quality contributors
- Gender-gap fillers
- Page improvers
- Wikidata Translators
For further information about the contest, the recognition categories and how to participate, please visit the contest page here.
If you'd love to organize this contest for your local wiki or organize in-person events centred around this project, or you need further information about the AfroCine Project, please leave a message on the project talkpage. See you around :).--Jamie Tubers (talk) 22:50, 03 October 2018 (UTC)
Add key mapping for Yoruba, Igbo, and Hausa to ULS
I actually made a layout for Yoruba there already, but I can make another one if the current one doesn't work well.
I can make layouts for Hausa and Igbo, too. I don't think it needs a wishlist project :)
- @Amire80: Thanks for the Yoruba layout. I think the reason I thought it wasn't done was because it wasn't listed on Help:Extension:UniversalLanguageSelector/Input methods. I tried to put it to use on meta, by following the instructions on on that page and here, I saw the small keyboard by the right top of the editing area when I attempt to edit a page, the instruction was that I should choose between "Alt Yoruba" or "native keyboard",I tried both but don't seem to see any changes. I tried disabling inputs tools, hoping to be able to re-enable it but unfortunately I couldn't find the language setting panel on meta. I went to Wikipedia, and was able to find the language setting panel, so I enabled it, and once again I saw the "Alt Yoruba" and "native keyboard" option after choosing Yoruba. Even after this, it does not reflect on meta, as my input language is still disabled here. Even though I'm currently having these challenges, I'll appreciate if you can layouts for Hausa and Igbo too, I'll be having an orientation program centered on contributing to indigenous Wikipedia by early next year. Thanks once again. HandsomeBoy (talk) 12:27, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
