Wikimedia CEE Online Meeting 2021 submission[edit]

Logo of Wikimedia CEE Online Meeting 2021.svg

Dear Mohammed,

On behalf of the Wikimedia CEE Online Meeting 2021 programme committee, I would like to inform you that we consider to accept your submission "Interlinks and Sitelinks for Wikipedia in other languages apart from English wikipedia" as a lightning talk rather than a workshop. However, given that the submission is incomplete and lacks an abstract, we cannot accept it before you fill in the missing lines in the submission template.

Best regards.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 09:43, 21 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've noticed that you've added the missing content, and I've added your session to the draft schedule with a starting time at 15:30 (UTC) on 7 November (Sunday). Best.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 13:56, 21 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Kiril Simeonovski, Thank you and we look forward to having a successful session and conference at large. Dnshitobu (talk) 14:29, 21 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

View it! September update[edit]

View it! Tool
View it! Tool update Sept. 2022

Thank you for signing up for View it! updates!

As a reminder, you can view details about how to install the View it! user script or use the Toolforge tool on our meta page. Please use the talk page there to contact the team!

August happenings

  • We held two community conversations, one in person at Wikimania 2022/Pittsburgh and one virtual during a Wikimedians in Residence Exchange Network meeting.
    • During both meetings we discussed final design of View it!, and results refinement and querying. Check the August updates for notes from both meetings.
  • View it! is working across all Wikimedia projects, and we are currently working on multi-lingual functionality.

Coming in September

  • Currently plan to focus development on multilingialism, on-wiki/editor features for the user script, and extending the search functions on Toolforge.
  • We are continuing to respond to user feedback and finalizing design.

Action to take

  • Install Beta script and see how it can used to add new images to articles.
  • All editors are invited to share the tool with their local wiki communities, or incorporate it into relevant local templates, such as infoboxes. If you do so, please let us know about it, so we can ensure backwards compatibility for that use case as we continue development!
  • Feel free to leave comments on our Discussion page

View it! beta testing - September update & request for comments[edit]

View it! Tool
View it! Tool Beta Testing Sept. 2022

Thank you for signing up to be a beta tester! We appreciate your interest and assistance with the development of View it!. Please install the beta script and start to see the results that View it! pulls. Our intention is to check in periodically and occasionally ask questions related to the current stages of development. However, please feel free to leave messages on the Discussion page at any time with comments or questions you have. To respond to the questions below, please visit the Discussion page's September response section. Thank you again!

Current questions:

  • You can view our test version with expanded search features at Please compare these search options with the existing default (which relies on a "custommatch"-based search query that combines "depicts" results and top-level category membership).
    1. What default behavior would you prefer when clicking the tool from the user script? (ex. "custommatch" vs. just P180, or something else)
    2. What are your opinions on which features to integrate from the Toolforge test and how? We are wondering if you like all of the existing ones, or not, or want others, if these are overkill and overcomplicate the search interface, if you'd rather see advanced search on a separate page, etc.
  • We are also thinking about the buttons and click behavior on the existing user script design.
    1. The View it! button currently exists in the top tab bar, next to "Talk". Do you prefer this placement, or another option (such as the leftmost sidebar, or another location).
    2. The button currently uses "View" in English. Do you have opinions on use of this wording? Is there another suggestion you prefer (such as "Images", "Media", etc.). Would you like an icon or not?
    3. When clicking on the tab from a wiki project, do you want Toolforge to open in the same browser tab or a new tab? When clicking an image within the Toolforge tool, do you want the Commons file page to open in that same browser tab or in a new tab?
  • If you have other feedback on any other aspect, please let us know! We are also happy to hear ideas about future development, such as planned editor tools.

October Update[edit]

September/October Happenings

  • View it! is now multilingual! We are currently working on tool localization. Please consider helping us!

Coming Soon

  • We are releasing a new version of View it! that will implement some of the Toolforge functionality into the on-Wiki experience.
  • We are thinking about ways for View it! results to show up on page as an image grid, gallery or other form, without leaving the page. Please let us know what your idea/preference is.
  • Integrating editor features such as the ability to add an image from View it! or remove a faulty statement.

Action to take

  • Share your thoughts with us about the interface! What would you like the final product to look like? Should it be on-wiki? Preference on location of the button/link? We are open to ideas - please share them with us.
  • Install Beta script and see how it can used to add new images to articles.
  • All editors are invited to share the tool with their local wiki communities, or incorporate it into relevant local templates, such as infoboxes. If you do so, please let us know about it, so we can ensure backwards compatibility for that use case as we continue development!

View it! has been expanded and will have an official launch demo session Jan. 12th[edit]

Goat View it! results
View it! Tool update Jan. 2023

Big news, View it! users! Over the last two months, View it! has been expanded to two versions. Our new full version shows images within the wiki content page, and the "View" tab displays a gallery of images without leaving the site you are on, as you can see at right. We have rebranded the original version, which utilizes the "View" tab to link to our Toolforge search results, to "Lite". We invite you to switch to full version and try it out! Major changes:

  • The full version includes an image carousel on each content page (at the top, under the article navigation buttons) which can be expanded for pagination.
  • You may notice the "View" button has moved to between the "Read" and "Edit" buttons - the View button is in the same place for both versions and we felt this was a better placement for editors.
  • In full version, clicking the "View" tab will take you to a full-screen gallery.

Action to take

Thank you for being a part of the View it! journey and please join us for the launch on January 12th!

As a reminder, you can view details about how to install the View it! user script or use the Toolforge tool on our meta page. Please use the talk page to contact us with comments or issues.

We need your feedback on a tool from the Wikimedia Summit[edit]

Reminder: the guide to using Baserow, presented during the Wikimedia Summit.

Hi! I'm contacting you as one of the participants in the Wikimedia Summit 2022, to kindly ask for your feedback through a 5-10 minute survey to evaluate 'Baserow' (note: the survey is on a Google form).

Baserow was a tool through which participants in the Summit co-created a database of Movement Strategy activities. We hope to learn from you how useful it may be to keep using it in the future to help document and connect on Movement Strategy work.

You are welcome and encouraged to fill out the survey in any language. Your feedback would be very appreciated --Abbad (WMF) (talk) 14:26, 16 February 2023 (UTC).Reply[reply]
