BigBang + 10^-29 sec[edit]

Szevasz, itt Ralesk. Kis kérdés: miért „szócikk”? Különben köszi, hogy szóltál, már azon voltam, hogy megkérdezzem a intlwiki listán, hogy nem lenne-e jobb simán dobni a .com-ot :D Fene, megelőztél! -- 195.56.50.179 23:20, 8 Jul 2003 (UTC)

Ha kérdezel vmalamit, hogy "miért" javaslom, hogy egyben azt is írd le hogy szerinted "miért ne", mert így tovább tart minden. Vagyis... miért ne szócikk? Mit javasolsz? (A 'cikk' nem hiszem, hogy ugyanazt jelenti, nem vagyok meggyőződve, hogy megfelelő, de győzz meg.) -- grin 04:05, 9 Jul 2003 (UTC)

Na, az ott fönn én vagyok és elfelejtettem készíteni egy harmadik accot :P Szóvalszóval, belekontárkodtam már a főlapba meg a php-be, remélem nem szúrtam el ez utóbbit túlságosan :D -- Ralesk 00:40, 9 Jul 2003 (UTC)

Neked is van preview gombod, nem? :-) A főlapba kontárkodást nem láttam.


Wikipedia-wide information network[edit]

(moved here from User:GrinTimwi 15:01, 4 Apr 2004 (UTC))

Hello.

I am Anthere. I only speak french and english. I hope someone will be able to translate this, and I apologise if I did not put it in the right place :-)

I would like that information circulate better between wikipedias, so that all wikipedians can participate more, and keep its own identity at the same time.

For this reason, I recently set a page on meta, m: Goings-on.

Hopefull, at any time, this page could indicate the current discussions, polls, votes or general announcements. 3 pages were already locally created on the spanish, the french, on the bulgarian and the english wikipedia. A global one is now on meta.

Each local page is about general on-goings as well as local ones.
Meta page aims at being about global occurences.

The page is different from the announcement page. The announcement is more oriented toward external communication (such as number of pages, special adverstisement), while the on-goings aim at mentionning community events (such as a new feature poll, elections of board of trustees).

To compare both pages :

It would be great that each wikipedia in time, set a similar page, so that information could flow more easily between wikipedia. If you do so, please do set the goings-on page locally, so that every wikipedians on *your* wikipedia can see it and participate to it, and please link it to the meta page.

For bigger wikipedia, it is also interesting to set a goings-on page to relieve the local village pump, often clogged with information request.

For small wikipedias, since it is difficult to maintain such a community page with less contributors, it makes sense to merge the goings-on in the village pump, or in the community main page (perhaps by making a separate paragraph).

I am also looking for people who would agree to update the local goings-on in their language. Please, contact me at my talk page for any support, suggestion and feedback.

Thank you very much for your attention :-) Anthere


Hi! Can you please translate the election notice * into Hungarian and post it prominently on the Recent Changes page of the Hungarian Wikipedia. Once you have done that, please let me know, and leave me a link where I can find it. Thanks. User:Danny on en.

the report[edit]

Hey. Do you remember me? You once helped me on character code problem of the mailinglist for Japanese Wikipedia. I just visited hungarian wikipedia the other day by chance, and now I've just read about it on the report. Glad to know it's kickin'.

On Japanese Wikipedia, people sometimes talk about the shortage of admins. What happened, in my personal view, is that as we grow bigger,

  • There are more people coming through google - lots of newbies
  • There are less people who likes Wikipedia's future potential and philosophy, but more people who likes Wikipedia's contents. Not all of them are devoted NPOV-ers or community-oriented collaborators, for example. Some of them just want to plug in what they know (which is of course great, but comes at a cost).
  • After a while, Yahoo News (in Japan) started linking to our articles, and it brings really huge amount of people. Good for us, as long as we can keep up. Well, some times we get behind..
  • When there is less administrators, care-takers, and old-hands, than there should be, we cannot have enough people to welcome newbies, introduce them guidelines and policies, politely mediate misunderstandings and conflicts, etc. Those things take time, and a less time-consuming way is just block, protect, speedy-delete things sometimes even without prior warning, and let them learn in a bit harder way.
  • Newbies do not necessarily understand basic copyrights and GFDL matters. And that means deletion request surge.
  • At some point, people started gossiping about Wikipedia at an external site (like a bulletin board). That might have fed some trolls and vandals extra incentive to have fun by having their own show and gets talked about.
  • When there are some participants who do not act in good-faith or do not know how to compromise and cooperate, and if we cannot deal with them in a polite, respectful, but time-consuming way, we have to either rely on more rules or more discretionary actions by sysops.

Now, still, Japanese Wikipedia is not that bad. There are many devoted, intelligent, sensible participants. But if we had prepared for the increasing proportion of newbies, it would be even a better place. That, I think, is to have more admins and cherish old-hands who can participate in the self-governance of the community.

Well, of course, everything I say could well be wrong. It was just my experience, and it is just my view. But I thought I would share it with you anyway. And I am looking forward to hearing from you and others about how things develop at Hungarian Wikipedia.

Science pearls[edit]

Hi,

I address you as the ambassador of your wikipedia. Please notice the above project.

This project, more than other projects, will benefit from inter-wiki cooperation. Can you post a message regarding this project at your wikipedia village pump?

Thanks for your help, APH from the English wiki

Trust in Wikipedia[edit]

this is Cathy from Hong Kong working on a research about trust on Wikipedia. I wonder if you would kindly contact me at researchingmedia@gmail.com? I'd like to chat with you about Wikipedia of your language. Would you kindly drop me your email or IM (Skype, MSN, AIM or ICQ)? It wouldn't take more than ten minutes, but it would help enormously for us to understand the overall trust-based social landscape of Wikipedia. Thank you!

Projekt[edit]

Nem emlékszem már biztosan, hogy te voltál-e az aki a projekt szót csúnyának vélted. Az én kifogásom az ellene, hogy a latinból jött az angolon keresztül, és angolban ez alany is lehet meg ige is és a magyarban nem. Az utóbbiakban valaki használta a 'kezdeményezés' szót a Wikipédiával kapcsolatban, ami szerintem a fordításnak remekül megfelel és én is ezt fogom használni a jövőben.

Help with Hungarian translations[edit]

Hi Grin, I am contacting you as I would highly appreciate your help to translate and proofread three short texts from English to Hungarian for WMF's multilingual fundraising campaign that will be starting in two weeks. I kindly ask you to go onto the Fundraising Translation Hub https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fundraising/Translation, and click on the three texts available for translation. I would be most grateful if you would spread this message and ask fellow English/Hungarian Wikipedians to do the same. Please reach out to me by email, jrobell@wikipedia.org if you have any questions. A warm thank you in advance. Kind regards, Jrobell (talk) 14:18, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

WMHU and the current round of AGP[edit]

G'day Péter, congrats for WMHU being eligible for the next round of the Annual Grants Program, and good luck. I have asked a question about the program at Talk:WMF_Board meetings/2013-11-24/FAQ#New FDC entrants without a recent track record at WMF and mentioned WMHU as a possible example. I only quickly scanned the WMHU grants. Please correct me as necessary. John Vandenberg (talk) 15:05, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Superprotect status[edit]

Dear Grin, 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.

If you are interested[edit]

Hi, I hope I am not bothering you. I just want to inform you about a possibilty on meta. After the SUL finalization there is a search for additional Global_renamers.

Maybe you knew already... as I did with other local bureaucrats with knowledge of "minor"/"uncommon" languages, I am contacting you because at the moment in Global_renamers#Users_with_global_rename_access and Stewards#List_of_current_stewards, if I correctly remember, only one is hu-N. I think that with your impressive cross-wiki experience and your previous local experience as a bureaucrats you could be useful.

Please notice that I am not an expert user on meta nor a local bureaucrat, I just care about the "variety" of the meta environment and I though that it was useful to inform some local bureaucrats of the opportunity.--Alexmar983 (talk) 01:58, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the notice. Unfortunately the problem is not the interest but time: I'd gladly enroll but I cannot promise I would be able to continuously watch the requests and get them done (and it's very demotivating to have flags forcibly removed). Anyone may call me to translate / arbitrate if there's a HU language barrier. --grin 22:37, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
I understand. I have to say: looking the GRs activities, I think some of those are not very "active" in any case.
If you think another candidate with enough crosswiki activity and hu>3 skill is available, let him/her know. Plaese notice that it is not compulsory to be/have been a bureaucrat.--Alexmar983 (talk) 10:23, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

Please sign new Wikimedia confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information by 31 December[edit]

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

Wikimedia Foundation logo - vertical (2012-2016).svg

As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are beginning the transition to the new policy.

An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.

The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that OTRS volunteers sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have been identified as an OTRS volunteer and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy. If you do not sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015, you will lose your OTRS access. OTRS volunteers have a specific agreement available, if you have recently signed the general confidentiality agreement for another role (such as CheckUser or Oversight), you do not need to sign the general agreement again, but you will still need to sign the OTRS agreement.

Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign

If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me (gvarnum@wikimedia.org). Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain your OTRS access. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

Thank you,
Gregory Varnum (User:GVarnum-WMF), Wikimedia Foundation

URGENT: Please sign new Wikimedia confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information now[edit]

Wikimedia Foundation logo - vertical (2012-2016).svg

This is a reminder to acknowledge and sign the new Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information. As you know, your volunteer role in Wikimedia projects gives you access to secure and sensitive information.

The new version includes one major change.

  • There is a change regarding the way personal data may be released. Accordingly, functionaries must notify the Wikimedia Foundation at check-disclosure@wikimedia.org before releasing data, in order to obtain a written approval for doing so. The Foundation will respond within 10 days. However, for emergencies, such as cases involving threats of violence, functionaries may release the personal data without such explicit permission, but they should notify the Foundation immediately following the disclosure. If they choose not to disclose the data, the request for disclosure should be forwarded to the Foundation's emergency email address (emergency@wikimedia.org).

There are also some wording changes that were made to more closely align the language with evolving industry norms, best practices and laws. The most notable of these has been the change of the term "nonpublic information" to "nonpublic personal data". None of these changes are intended to make fundamental changes to the scope or practice of the policy but we know they could appear as such, hence wanted to flag them.

The aforementioned changes require users that have already signed the previous version of the policy to sign the new version as well.

We therefore ask that you to sign the updated version. Signing the agreement is tracked on Phabricator's Legalpad. An online guide is available to help you with signing the agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign. If you wish you can sign it directly at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/L37. The exact policy is located here: Access to nonpublic personal data policy. The text of the confidentiality agreement is located here: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information

If you have already received this message and signed the updated agreement, you need not sign it again. Once is sufficient. In this case, we ask that you respond to Samuel (WMF) letting him know when (date) and how (method/process of signing) you have signed it so that we can update our own records.

Note: please bear in mind that if you still haven’t signed the updated version of the Confidentiality Agreement by February 13, 2019 your rights will be removed.

Thank you for your understanding,

Samuel Guebo (User:Samuel (WMF)), Wikimedia Foundation
