Global bot policy[edit]

So I had this idea for a RFC: amend the global bot policy to automatically opt in all new content wikis, while still leaving them the option to opt out. But I'm not familiar enough with the policy to write such a RFC up. Any thoughts? --Rschen7754 20:20, 24 June 2017 (UTC)

I had the same thinking, yes. Unfortunately RFCs I open are often tagged as unclear, etc. so I'm not sure if it should be me who takes that path but I'll ask around. I still have in mind doing at least a survey on how we can better the global bot policy to be useful today as interwikis are being deprecated on Wiktionaries as well via Cognate.

Notifying Spanish Wikipedia about cross-wiki search results[edit]

I see that Spanish Wikipedia has cross-wiki search results, i.e. Discovery Search, implemented. May I notify the community at w:es:Wikipedia:Café/Archivo/Miscelánea/Actual in English, or may you do it in Spanish instead? Thanks. --George Ho (talk) 03:30, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

@George Ho: I can notify eswiki in Spanish if you wish, otherwise I'd suggest the "News" section of our village pump that can be found at es:Wikipedia:Café/Archivo/Noticias/Actual. Regards, —MarcoAurelio 09:40, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
Oh, please do. Thanks. --George Ho (talk) 12:29, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
@George Ho: Okay. Sorry if it sounds a bit silly but what do I have to say to them exactly? Is there an announcement or draft I can use? Regards, —MarcoAurelio 12:31, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
I guess I'll announce this in English there then. Therefore, you can translate. Deal? --George Ho (talk) 12:50, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
Here's my draft:

Hola, Spanish Wikipedia. The cross-wiki search results are now live. Therefore, for example, if you type either "España" or "México", you'll see results at the right side from the following sister projects—Wikiviajes, Wikiversidad, Wikinoticias, Wikcionario, Wikiquote, Wikisource, Wikilibros, y multimedia results from Wikimedia Commons. You won't see results from Wikispecies or Wikidata, but the plan to include those search results in Spanish Wikipedia is under development. Feel free to share your thoughts about this. If you like to propose which sister projects to include and to exclude from cross-wiki search results, please use es:Wikipedia:Café/Archivo/Propuestas/Actual. Gracias.

Any suggestions for improvements, or should I post it there immediately? --George Ho (talk) 14:36, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
George Ho: Looks good to me. If you wish, feel free to post the translated version of your announcement directly:
Translation: "Hola comunidad de Wikipedia en español. La función de búsqueda de resultados cross-wiki ya está disponible. Así pues, por ejemplo, si escribís "España" o "México" veréis, además de los resultados en la wiki local, de los siguientes proyectos hermanos: Wikiviajes, Wikiversidad, Wikinoticias, Wikcionario, Wikiquote, Wikisource, Wikilibros y resultados de archivos alojados en Wikimedia Commons. De momento no veréis los resultados de Wikispecies o Wikidata, pero el plan es incluir dichos resultados de búsqueda en la Wikipedia en español en el futuro, para lo cual ya se está trabajando. Nos encantaría saber vuestra opinión acerca de esta nueva función. Si tenéis alguna propuesta en relación a esta nueva funcionalidad o deseáis incluir o excluir ciertos proyectos hermanos del listado de los resultados que se obtendrán, podéis comentarlo en esta página. Muchas gracias."

Forgot the header: "Cross-wiki search results now live". Needs translation also. --George Ho (talk) 17:20, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. --George Ho (talk) 18:52, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

Hello, I saw that Synchbot not working since along time, so can any steward do things manually? --Alaa :)..! 20:45, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi @علاء: Synchbot operates a proprietary script by Pathoschild which is not public due to the huge ammount of harm it if not operated properly. I'll ask him and see if he can take care of them. Regards, —MarcoAurelio 10:49, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
