Welcome to Meta![edit]

Hello Kruusamägi, and welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). If you would like, feel free to ask me questions on my talk page. Happy editing! -- Cirt (talk) 04:05, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

Minority translate[edit]

Hi! I am very interested at your project and, as a translation administrator in three wikis, do want to be involved. How can I help? --Ochilov (talk) 13:31, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

I'm glad to hear that!
At a moment I'm having some discussions on what order should the different features be added. Maybe you could test this tool and give some feedback on what features would you like to see there?
If you happen to come across with some bugs, then I'd value greatly a feedback on thous. And as there isn't yet a comprehensive user manual, then it's also a great chance to test what is easily understandable and what needs additional instructions (i.e. how intuitive the program is). Kruusamägi (talk) 13:56, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
Okay. I think, thirstly, I will translate your website to other lanhguages. Then I will make some guides. And also, I have a question. When you are going to add other languages to translation, especially Russian? --Ochilov (talk) 02:29, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
Yes, that would be nice.
You can add whatever language versions when doing translations (use language codes). Interface is also in Russian (if you change it under preferences to Russian). Kruusamägi (talk) 09:18, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
Okay, so I thik I'll begin my work soon. --Ochilov (talk) 09:43, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
Ochilov, any comments on the program? Kruusamägi (talk) 11:51, 19 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Can you make language changing a bit more intuitive (in a toolbar with a language list)? This will make first experience with the program much easier. --Ochilov (talk) 04:09, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for showing interest. I am the developer of Minority Translate. I don't think that putting languages on the toolbar is a good idea, because the toolbar is for controls that the user is expected to use often and it would take up too much space (combobox + add&remove buttons). I agree that languages selection could be more intuitive. If you have any other ideas on how to achieve this, then let me know. Usinväikebotikene (talk) 09:14, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
Ochilov, could you translate the MT wiki front page into Russian?
We'll likely add intro window, that will lead users directly to preferences. Hopefully that can help to get the settings right after starting the program. Kruusamägi (talk) 15:50, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
Yup, will be done till Saturday. --Ochilov (talk) 11:55, 26 March 2015 (UTC)
Have you had time to look into it? New version (1.8) is also out with the autocomplete functionality. Kruusamägi (talk) 19:02, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
Is it done with Minority translate program? (Sorry for not responding a lot time, I had problems to solve in real life) --Ochilov (talk) 09:03, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
No problem. There are some translations missing, but it probably isn't a big problem. If you have time to translate thous, then I can send them. Kruusamägi (talk) 16:41, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
To Ochilov: could you translate thous (.html) files? Kruusamägi (talk) 17:51, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
  • I just translated main page into Russian and began translating htmls. How can I send them to you? --Ochilov (talk) 05:31, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Inspire Campaign on content curation & review[edit]

WPCube.png

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) 05:39, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

Participate in the Inspire Campaign and help address harassment![edit]

NounProject Leaves.png

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,

CN for SPC[edit]

Hi! Will SPC be needing CentralNotice banners this year? If yes, could you please add the planned entry to CentralNotice/Calendar as well as make a request on CentralNotice/Request (even if there is already someone who will be taking care of it, we need proper logging of these things)? It would also be very nice to notify major wikis which will suffer from the banners the most with a few lines in their Village Pumps :) --Base (talk) 12:57, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

Yes, it will need it. And there should be several version of banners: like the minimal similar to the one used last time (for anonymous users) and something more noticeable for both anon and logged-in users to be shown for a limited number of times. Kruusamägi (talk) 23:42, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
@Kruusamägi and Base: the Ukrainian team has added the info to the page on Commons: Commons:Wiki Science Competition 2017/CentralNotice, but it is not clear where we are supposed to add the details (time zones, etc). Thus we have added the info here: wmua:CentralNotice#Конкурс наукових фотографій 2017 / Wiki Science Competition 2017. The contest starts in three days, we need the banner --アンタナナ 10:52, 28 October 2017 (UTC)
Dear Ivo, there is still no request here CentralNotice/Request, and we also have a question about campaigns: are you going to help us with them? or we are supposed to find somebody to do it? Thanks! --アンタナナ 09:02, 30 October 2017 (UTC)
