Ciao Nemo[edit]

Qui ho avviato una discussione che ha generato un entusiasmo senza precedenti nel bar di commons. I molteplici intervenuti però non mi hanno chiarito le idee. Puoi vedere se per il Penn e per le altre istituzioni che sempre più accettano di fornire immagini a strumenti come Wikipedia ma negando il consenso a un utilizzo commerciale si può generare un template tipo il Mibac? Insomma Commons accetta quelle immagini come accetta quelle museali italiane? Sperando in un tuo intervento chiarificatore ti invio gli auguri per uno splendido 2015 anche se in ritardo. baci --Xinstalker (talk) 13:06, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

request from mr wikipedia[edit]


Seasons Greetings, at this page on mr-wikipedia we had a brief discussion in july 2014 and decided to suspend local media file uploading for non sysops for a while to bring in awareness and desciplene on file licencing and copyright issues. While those issues are still not completelely sorted out still there we find a need to be flexible and allow file uploading to all from 21st Jan to 7th june; the reason being jan to may month has lot of important days and celebrations regarding Marathi language and May month is school holiday season off line marathi students tend to visit Marathi Wikipedia and upload phographs for photothon . it is emotional connect and some specialy developed android apps are tuned to marthi wikipedia.

So local community wishes we allow local uploading from 21 jan to 7th june. Since I have not started and used to new facility in place of bugzill I will apreciate your support in this respect to file the bug on our behalf

Hi, waiting for your kind reply Mahitgar (He who knows ,wants to know and and loves to keep others informed) (talk) 10:53, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

I'm sorry, I want to help but I don't know how to act on this request. Either you want local uploads, or you don't. We don't do time-based changes to this. So, please decide what you want, and let us know.
How hard is it to fix the android apps in question? --Nemo 08:11, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

It is about making people used to marathi wikipedia, creating an emotional connect. once those photographs are uploaded through app in a cource of time orgnisors do transfer usefull images to commons also. In any case I am not the app developer and orgnisor of various events events. And all the uploading necessarilly wont be from events or android either. There is no pint in forcing single solution, I suppose.

Bye the way with little effort I could file a bug on phabricator please let me know whom to give follow up so that the things will work as people want.

Relevant task: . (Nemo, you have a message on the same topic at User_talk:Nemo_bis/Unused_local_uploads#Removal_of_oc:wikipedia.) --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 12:59, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Ok, got no reply on the task either about the apps in question. "Photothon" doesn't find anything, "फोटोथोन" little more. I see one user welcome for the photothon. w:mr:विकिपीडिया:चावडी/इतर चर्चा/जुनी चर्चा १ has instructions which don't include any app. If you link the apps in question, I'll try to fix them.
  • If [1] is what you did: a contest doesn't work well if users have to wait 4 days, are you sure local upload is better? Perhaps you also want to allow any user to upload, as happens in Commons?
  • We can enable uploads, but w:mr:MediaWiki:Licenses is empty. Special:Upload wouldn't really work anyway. According to the instructions above, you only want users to upload self-made photos under free licenses, right? Those images are also allowed on Commons, where cc-by-sa-3.0 is translated. I don't see it yet on

When you have fixed MediaWiki:Licenses and decided what to do about the 4 days restriction, let us know. --Nemo 11:39, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Ah, I found w:mr:वर्ग:फोटोथोन - २०१२. Is there another category for the other years? This one contains 1300 files, but most of them seem to be copyvios. I'm glad to help cleaning up, as you have a big backlog. --Nemo 13:06, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

SUL announcement translations[edit]

I've updated the general announcement as well as the personal announcement to clarify that users can use Special:GlobalRenameRequest now on their local wikis, as you probably saw I emailed the translators list about getting the strings localized. Would you mind if I followed up with the translators who worked on these messages that you contacted originally, or would you prefer to do it? I'm just fine doing it myself but I don't want to step on your toes and duplicate communication if this is something you are doing/planning on doing. I plan to start notifying accounts to be affected by email and talk pages within the next couple of weeks once legoktm has built the Special page that will expose the users-to-be-renamed table locally for all wikis.

wikisource error with OCR from IA book processed in 2008[edit]

Hello Nemo_bis,

In a help discussion at wikisource your name was provided as a possible IA admin who would give some advice about this book - - that has errors in processing it for wikisource - the OCR routine at the time -2008- could not handle complex tables that take up almost an entire page. This situation has happened before. Perhaps this may be time to describe the preferred procedure.

Which of these 2 possible directions would give a better result:

1 - Have an IA admin re-derive the file on IA


2 - add the pdf to IA with different file name and use the subsequently derived files. Note earlier today I added the pdf to IA with a slightly different name -

Thank you for your input. Robin2014 (talk) 20:45, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Converter for krc[edit]

Hello, Federico!
I appreciate your supporting our project.
I've made the list of example conversions from Cyrillic to Latin (here).
Should I do something else? --Iltever(talk) 06:51, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi, Nemo.
I would like to turn your attention to my mistake : "ацентилен" => "atsetilen" (line 135).
The correct transliteration undoubtedly is : "ацетилен" => "atsetilen". Sorry for my carelessness.
Is there anything I can do? --Iltever(talk) 09:12, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
Sorry one more time. There is one more mistake: "Юголсвия" => "Yugoslaviya" (line 176). The correct: "Югославия" => "Yugoslaviya". --Iltever(talk) 13:50, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
Unfortunately I don't know much about machine codes.... I have to see the words. --Iltever(talk) 14:59, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi, Nemo. I've found some discrepancy in my example conversions. Perhaps this conversion for the character "Щ щ" (lines 143, 144) will not make a failure: « Щ щ » щётка, щёлочь = « Şç şç » şçötka, şçöloç. --Iltever(talk) 18:11, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Hi Nemo! Sorry, I was just passing by and I noticed you are working with cyr-lat converters. If you are really working with them, could you please have a look at the crh: converter? It is on Bugzilla/Phabricator for years without activity - see phabricator:T23582, so could you please have a look at it when you have time? Thanks — NickK (talk) 01:25, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
    • Sorry, but I doubt I can help. The krc converter is moving (slowly) only because they sent a patch themselves. I'm only helping add tests. --Nemo 07:40, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi, Nemo. The main test for the KRC-converter succeeded. What's the next? Should I do something? --Iltever(talk) 15:23, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi, Federico!

Sorry for disturbing. I didn't catch what kind of code corrections had to be made here. Could you help with it? Thanks. --Iltever(talk) 21:05, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Domanda sui bot[edit]

Mi sta capitando di trovare molte talk rosse in cui inserisco il template di benvenuto. A chi posso chiedere per fare fare questo lavoro a un bot? Mi sembra strano che nessuno se ne occupi.--Alexmar983 (talk) 14:13, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

io do un benevuto chi ha abbastanza contributi globali e ha fatto modifiche recenti, solo che non vorrei fare la figura di quello che fa queste cose per ammazzare il tempo.

Trademark policy icons[edit]

Hi Nemo, accidently I saw that the TM-icons are as well "Bad SVG" as some of them very poor that it even can even be seen in the small display. After some of them had been made error-free I made them a bit better; to others I made alternatives. Because it is your domain I let it to you whether you will take the better images, or not.

Needed help for telugu wikiquote[edit]

Greetings. These days I'm working on telugu wikiquote and found that you've removed local file upload due to very less activity there. It is a good decision for that time, but now handful of telugu wikimedians along with me are working on the project. We are very much need in uploading local files in telugu wikiquote. So, please consider reinstallation of local file uploads.
with regards,

Domanda sui sockpuppet[edit]

Scusa se ti faccio un'altra domanda preliminare ma sto tentando di capire. Su meta esiste un archivio centralizzato di tutti i sockpuppet individuati a livello locale? mi sembra che sia il blocco che la regolamentazione dei sockpuppet manchi di centralizzazione, ma con il SUL ci sarà pur qualcuno che si è messo a studiare il problema?--Alexmar983 (talk) 00:57, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

appunto è dal 2008 che si sta centralizzando la cosa, il SUL finalization dietro l'angolo (forse sarà postposto ma comunque nell'orizzonte degli eventi), ma ancora oggi le norme per la creazione di sockpuppet leciti non sono omogene fra una wiki e l'altra, e se un sockpuppet viene individuato e magari bloccato su una wiki locale non è chiarissimo se e quando questo venga non dico bloccato ma almeno segnalato su altre wiki. Se un'utenza è cambiata e si è chiaramente dichiarata come erede di un'utenza defunta in locale, non è chiaro dove quest'informazione può essere riportata a livelo globale a beneficio di tutti... Mi sembra tutto ancora un work in progress. --Alexmar983 (talk) 11:25, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
ho capito, ma il blocco è solo una parte della storia, ti ho parlato p.e. di utenze defunte rinate, di sockpuppet leciti etc. Anche nel caso del blocco è abbastanza disorientante p.e. quando il blocco a livello globale non viene comunicato in locale..--Alexmar983 (talk) 12:08, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Re: Wikimedia chapters/Reports/Wikimedia Italia[edit]

Viste le indicazioni generiche ricevute in lista, a seguito di domanda diretta, sto procedendo nel seguente modo, in ordine di priorità:

  • traduzione delle news man mano che escono
  • recupero del backlog delle news
  • traduzione dei bilanci a partire dal più recente

Se, come detto in lista, esistono delle priorità, basta elencarle. Certo è che tradurre a distanza di 2 anni qualcosa, senza avere idea di quale fosse l'idea originale dietro (vista la forte ambiguità della lingua italiana), non è banale. --Baruneju (talk) 16:55, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

cs.wikiquote: admins keep vandalism/trolling on Main Page for years[edit]

Hi, please revisit the discussion on cs.wikiquote: q:cs:Diskuse_k_Wikicitátům:Hlavní_strana#WMCZ. As proved in the discussion the added text is indeed vandalism/trolling, totally inapproprate for the Main Page of any project, would be legally considered libel/defamation and a civil law delict according to Czech law and many other (not only European) legal systems. The admins User:Danny B. and User:Milda didn′t intervene because both of them are former members of WMCZ who left the organization after its articles of association (bylaw) were changed (they had some personal issues with it) and this is their way to seek "revenge". Both of them should be punished for allowing libel/defamation on the Main Page of WM project for such a long time. --Auvajs (talk) 16:08, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Re: Wikimedia Blog/Drafts/Free knowledge author visits European parliament members[edit]

Letto.. peccato che non abbiamo ancora un blog di wmi per scriverne anche lì.

Thanks for your help formatting Wiki Loves Monuments evaluation report[edit]

Hi Nemo! Thank you for your help formatting Wiki Loves Monuments evaluation report. I really appreciate an experienced wikipedian reviewing format issues. I write back to you also to let you know I took your advice on semantic titles, but turned it around a bit to fit the design we developed for these reports. You can see the differences here.
Further, I wanted to note that having the references in a closed box (available for expansion) follows the style guideline we developed, for ease of navigation and reading. Each page of the report has a lot of information, and the references usually expand the pages a lot, so we chose to have them like that. I'm sure users will quickly understand the notes are there and be able to find them easily, even if the anchor doesn't work as such. I will, however, look into having the box expanded by default (if that's possible).
Thanks again for helping us out! Don't hesitate to get back to me on my talk page if you have follow up comments on how we can make the reports easy to navigate and read. Cheers, MCruz (WMF) (talk) 20:31, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Un commento su itwiki[edit]

Poso lasciarti un commento al volo? Fino a qualche mesi fa ero abbastanza "ottimista" su itwiki, diciamo che negli ultimi mesi avevo visto una stagnazione "dinamica" dei contributi dove sempre nuove aree emergevano, e alcuni mesi non erano peggio degli analoghi di 12 mesi fa.

Ma nelle ultime due-tre settimana non sono per nulla sereno. Conto almeno quattro utenze attive e competenti che hanno semsso di editare di botto nelle ultime settimane. Per esperienza: sono tante. Metteci pure me, che sono sempre più attratto dagli altri progetti... non che fossi un grande creatore di contributi ma qualcosa ho sempre fatto.

Negli ultimi mesi c'è stata una corsa a recuperare vecchie utenze per i flag avanzati che mi lascia perplesso. Le gente torna per dedicarsi alle scartoffie, più che per creare voci.

Il numero di utenze attive nel mese in corso vedo che sta scendendo.

Qualche utenza nuova brava s'è affacciata lo devo dire, ma è come se percepissi un improvviso "sbilanciamento". Mi sento "pessimista" in qualche modo, quel mio commento sul C.T. come "cavallo di troia" rientra in questa dinamica. Potrebbe essere l'effetto della percezione di un calo dopo alcuni mesi in cui eravamo andati anche meglio delle altre wiki come diferenza percentuale, eppure più ci ripenso più non mi levo di torno questa sensazione, spero di sbagliarmi.

Non vedo l'ora di guardare con attenzione i nuovi dati. Quello che mi preoccupa è che non immagino nessuna soluzione da implementare davvero per prendere in contropiede la situazione se questi ultimi fossero terribili (tipo un calo di due punti percentuali per qualche mese). Ogni carta relativa all'analisi utenze, p.e., sembra ancora poco spendibile. Se chiedessi di spammare un avviso alle utenze inattive e di buon livello (num edit, AV) suggerendo loro di tornare penso mi beccherei un pernacchione in sede di discussione. Forse è la volta che rispolvereremo davvero l'inserimento di voci via bot, ma sono scettico anche su quello, visto che lo rimandiamo da anni. Come rimago scettico sula possibilità di implementare i sistemi di monitoraggio dei nuovi utenti in modo sereno a breve.

Non so, se ci fosse un calo sosetnuto nei prossimi mesi, e Dio non voglia, tu come lo affronteresti? Che strategie si potrebbero giocare che abbiano chance reali di non essere criticate "per il gusto di farlo"? O troviamo il modo di fidelizzare i pochi nuovi che ci sono, o troviamo il modo di far tornare i vecchi che facevano delle voci vere.--Alexmar983 (talk) 00:18, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

quello che sento io è proprio la combinazione di tanti fattori e il grafico che mi hai linkato (carino) me lo sta confermando, nel mese di marzo, che non è ancora stato computato nella tabella generale delle satistiche si è passati da 3250 a 3000 e c'è una chiara tendenza verso il basso. Altra conferma che esattamente come mi aspettavo ci aspetta un calo non da poco, e Aprile è ancora tendenzialmente calante.
ciò che proponi rientra abbastanza in cosa mi aspettavo visto che il margine operativo su itiki si assottiglia, ma fare sondaggi non è reato. In particolare c'è un aspetto da valutare, nel questionario, cioè se l'utente si è sposato su altre piattaforme. Dal punto di vista wiki se chi abbandona itwiki passa a enwiki, o a itwikiquote probabilmente non cambia nulla sul lungo periodo, è solo un campanello d'allarme in più che su itwiki specificatamente qualcosa non va. --Alexmar983 (talk) 07:58, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
non ho dimenticato il picco stagionale, nei limiti del possibile sopratutto comparando che le altri lingue, tanto che a gennaio non ero felice per il segno più in sè ma perché era marcato sopra la media. E lo sentivo che c'era più lavoro che veniva fatto cercando le voci ampliate. Secondo me, a occhio, i dati sono leggermente peggiori di come dovrebbero essere. Quello che dici di wikidata è sensato, ne abbiamo discusso, ma penso che passato il 2014 quello che si doveva spostare si è spostato. Possibile che un miglioramento di leggi sul copyright possa determinare uno spostamento da e per commons, ma lo spostamento da una wiki locale a altre wiki locali è qualcosa di molto più sottile da percepire. Spostarsi p.e. su enwiki/frwiki (le più probabile) causerebbe un calo visibile su itwiki molto più che sulla wiki di arrivo.
Inizio a ragionarci, nel peggiore dei casi se itwiki non da l'assenso a fare un sondaggio lo si può sempre inviare sulla talk meta per i contributori non attivi globalmente da anni, ma con oltre 500-1000 edit, e con la mail attivata. Se anche solo lo 0.1% rispondesse sarebbero numeri significativi. In particolare al sondaggio chiederei se chi se ne è andato è/fosse al corrente di vari cambiamenti introdotti quali VE, wikidata, CT, etc... interessante sarebbe poi notare se a distanza di qualche mese chi ha risposto al sondaggio ha anche ripreso a editare.--Alexmar983 (talk) 08:23, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
ho buttato giù un rigo, vediamo come lo cambi per avere un'idea.--Alexmar983 (talk) 08:45, 21 April 2015 (UTC)


[2] That is not a duplicate. The old RfC was a user complaint, focused on "homophobia." The underlying situation was far more complex. The new RfC is placed as an RfC, but is really a process page focused on assisting the Pashto community at finding consensus. Please allow this trial of a new process some breathing space.

It will be facilitated toward seeking agreement among Pashto users, because with agreement, they can get things done. No agreement, no admin action, properly. This can actually work, I've seen it.

The old RfC should really be closed. Much to my surprise, there was action. The existing administrators and the 'crat were all removed. This is a very unusual situation. Now, that community needs special support, because it has a substantial active wiki to maintain, and there are language problems. Thanks for your attention. --Abd (talk) 19:45, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Signpost feature about article counts[edit]

As you already know, I've been asked to write up a "detailed summary" of the many issues surrounding Wikimedia article counts for use as a Signpost feature article. It looks like this is the week to have it published (i.e., this Wednesday). Unfortunately, as I work on it, I continue to discover more things I didn't know about article counting. So, I'm wondering whether you (as someone relatively knowledgeable on the subject) could do me a huge favor and read over what I have written so far, and let me know if you find any obvious mistakes or misunderstandings in there. Note that I am still working on it, so it's peppered with notes to myself here and there… - dcljr (talk) 07:58, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

I still have a couple of questions related to your actions/decisions, specifically (that I'd like clarification on before the Signpost feature is published):
  1. Why not recount Wikibooks each month? Does updateArticleCounts.php not implement the "comma" method correctly? (That's what it looks like to me. In fact, I have some doubt about the "all" method, as well.)
  2. (If so:) Would it be possible to recount all the Wikibooks except English and Portuguese with the updateArticleCount.php script, and recount only those two languages in a way that respects the "comma" method?
I am pressing this Wikibooks issue mainly because, if the analysis I did back in 2012 is any indication, the current Wikibooks counts are likely to be just as wrong as those in the rest of the sister projects were. - dcljr (talk) 22:52, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
I still don't know for sure if updateArticleCounts.php correctly implements the "comma" method or not. Can you verify which it is? - dcljr (talk) 21:40, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, that's what it looks like to me, but then I'm not at all familiar with the MediaWiki source code, so I wanted someone else to concur. Thanks. - dcljr (talk) 21:53, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

The given meaning of the present w:mr:Template:Delete template is not necessarily best one for the given purpose and we have deviced a new template w:mr:Template:Delete-image which is more suitable for the given purpose and it would be better idea to replace {{Delete}} with {{Delete-image}} on the said files.

Before deleting some of those files we want to conduct a specific awareness campaign among community members through email lists and social media so they realise the mistake and mistakes are not repeated. Replacing replace {{Delete}} with {{Delete-image}} is likely to help in above objective hence this request.

Bot support request[edit]


We are requesting a bot support to remove two templates namely "{{Own Work}} {{Cc}}" from Marathi wikipedia's file name space mistakenly (i.e. without respective user/uploader parmissions) placed by one local bot w:mr:User:चीत्रकाम्या vide these contributions dated 18th February 2013

  • kindly help us in getting templates "{{Own Work}} {{Cc}}" removed as requested above with the help of a suitable bot.

This is part of the steps needed to ask users to do and update licensing of their own files themselves.

Thanks and warm regards

I am not getting user right management option in case of user:AnankeBot probably since user:AnankeBot is not registered on mr-wikipedia as user. may be user:AnankeBot needs to make one visit to mr wikipedia so that user right management option would become functional and a bot flag can be given.

Thanks for prompt support. rgds Mahitgar (He who knows ,wants to know and and loves to keep others informed) (talk) 06:56, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

How to go about[edit]


Uptil now we have not received any feed back to our request at Talk:Wikilegal#Requests for comment/Applicability of Creative Commons in India; As such undersigned wanted to schedule a social media campaign (June 2015 onwards) among marathi language wikipedians making an apeal to get licences updated for the images they have uploaded uptil now. Undersigned prefers to have some sort of clarity on the above issue, before starting any such campaign.

Please do suggest.

Thanks and Warm regards

Mahitgar (He who knows ,wants to know and and loves to keep others informed) (talk) 11:01, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi, it seems you are busy in some other activities. I would prefer to keep you updated about this subject in hand, per my communication with Wikilegal team they are still researching the subject and it is likely take its own time. My view is let discussion on 'Applicability of Creative Commons in India' continue in future too. It would be always safe to have additional documentation Form I & Affidavit (Customised for reliqushment of copyright as per 'free cultural work' definition) than regret in future. At Marathi wikipedia we can attach this document to Template:Self while making copyright reliquishment declaration, and we can go ahead with our campaign of apeal to update licences.

Meaning of 'scappato di casa'[edit]

I read an autotranslation of and see 'scappato di casa' (run away from home) in most of the entries. Could you explain what this means? Perhaps your analysis is these people are hoping to run away from problems on their home wikis by running for the foundation board? I guess that the phrase has some obvious meaning in Italian that I am missing. Feel free to answer here or there if you wish to answer at all. I am not sure whether it is considered offensive to ask a question in English on an it.wikiquote talk page. Thanks! Mike Linksvayer (talk) 17:19, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Mike Linksvayer, it's a secret I may reveal after the elections. ;-) That's really just a personal scratchpad, I've not even checked whether the phrase is used in "my" sense outside my city... or family. --Nemo 19:53, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
Nemo, I linked to this from my blog (as you may have seen), which is why Mike saw it. But now I wonder if you would prefer less publicity. I would be happy to remove it from the blog post and my user page if you like, just let me know. -Pete F (talk) 20:43, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

  • hi Nemo, I fully respect your right to any opinion you may have on me, however it would be nice if you also tried to keep to at least basic accuracy in terms of facts :) it would seem that you're implying my limited experience on boards, while I am one of the most experienced of the candidates. Not that it matters now; it is mainly an acknowledgement of inaccuracy surprising for a veteran Wikimedian. Cheers Pundit (talk) 07:14, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

Latin script articles in the Konkani Wikipedia[edit]

Hi Nemo, I feel that the Konkani Wikipedia, which has been approved by LangCom, should inclue the Latin script articles as well. The only reason I've seen put forward to exclude the Latin script articles is that Devanagari is the official script. I've left a comment to this effect at the request discussion, please could you also share your thoughts about this there? Regards. The Discoverer (talk) 05:10, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

Manuale Mix'n'Match[edit]

Il manuale in inglese è stato fatto da un altro utente che ha preso spunto dal mio. Il punto è che il mio è un po' più esteso di quell'altro, oltre a essere venuto fuori per primo - da cui la richiesta di traduzione.

Ora, volendo, spero di trovare dieci minuti per allargare/sistemare il manuale inglese e poi, a cascata, quello italiano. Però, ecco, trovo sia il caso di continuare a tenerlo segnato per la traduzione. --Sannita - not just another sysop 13:09, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Content translation campaigns[edit]

Ho visto il tuo messaggio in una talk. Che campagne pensavi di fare? Riguardano l'italiano? Perché se intendi di bersagliare gli utenti di altre lingue che possono tradurre in italiano dovrei sapere qualche trucco per selezionarli.

Se invece riguarda gli utenti it-N e bisogna selezionare le voci a cui potrebbero essere interessate, sarei curioso di sapere tuo meccanismo che hai immaginato perché io ne avevo,, dai tempi della campagna di frWiki, buttati giù qualcuno.

Fammi sapere. --Alexmar983 (talk) 00:01, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

appena ho tempo finito di preparare questa presentazion lascio una proposta su itWiki e ti pingo. il senso era comunque associare lo spamming a un futuro FdQ sulle traduzioni da altre lingue (una tipologia di FdQ che viene fatta ciclicamente).--Alexmar983 (talk) 11:51, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
novellini? Le traduzioni automatiche non sono a mio avviso per i novellini. Uno o due dalla prima pagina ci possono capitare ma per quel FdQ il targeting è per chi ha un minimo di esperienza. Io ho puntato per lo spam mesi fa agli AV, che richiedono in genere un annetto di lavoro minimo, ma si può scendere anche a solo qualche migliaio di edit e pochi mesi. Almeno allo stato con cui il CT è adesso. Aspetterei che migliori ancora.
Il FdQ può sempre porre in evidenza alcune classi tematiche, ma per esperienza bisogna sempre lasciare un po' di autonomia. Cioè si segnalano fra le prime opzioni dell'elenco di cose da fare.
parlo per esperienza, non per convinzioni incrollabili. Si può "smontare" la mia posizione se mi si portano degli esempi pregressi in senso contrario. Sono molto aperto alle sperimentazioni.--Alexmar983 (talk) 14:13, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
oh scusa non voelvo scrivere "atuomatico" in quel senso, stavo aprlando a un amico su skype in una pausa di lavoro e usavo mezzo cervello. Cioè non intendevo la traduzione del contenuto parlavo della traduzione della scaffalatura che è in automatico anch'essa, che comunque la fa maluccio. Quindi ci sono template che mancano, categorie del cavolo etc tutta roba non per novellini. Se lo usi con gente che sa poco di wiki poi forse ti trovi viggili e viggilesse patrollatori a pontificare disastri nella tua talk entro poche ore. Dico forse prché dipende, a volte vigggilano, a volte di meno. io non mi ci azzardo. Non voglio rogne evitatbile restringendo il target quando si fanno i primi passi.--Alexmar983 (talk) 14:54, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
Con la gente che gira su itWiki io ho imparato a non sparare troppo nel mucchio. E che certe cose sono veniali a volte in modo random. Quindi se sei su un'altra piattaforma ok. Su itWiki nella mia espereinza meglio un test specifico e poi in seconda battuta qualche elemento più ndocojo-cojo.--Alexmar983 (talk) 17:29, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

Su questo[edit]

[3] su base annua. Noi ragioniamo su piani annuali. Il piano non l'ho scritto io ma sulla bozza fatta da me, e presentata a WMF, ho dato i riferimenti. Ma tu, non lavori per WM IT? Dalle stesse statistiche noterai che alcuni progetti strapompati (come Wikisource) su quella italiana hanno più o meno lo stesso numero di utenti attivi o veramente attivi, senza averne la stessa rilevanza. --Ilario (talk) 16:27, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Si, infatti io mi riferivo ad una comparazione sui progetti Wikivoyage non ai progetti in italiano. Il progetto è giovane e non ha senso confrontarlo con progetti più vecchi e consolidati meglio confrontare patate con patate. Dico che per il tanto lavoro che hai, perché oggi lo dedichi a spulciare il programma annuale di WM CH? --Ilario (talk) 16:41, 11 October 2015 (UTC)
Ho usato un po' di ironia visto che io sto caricando foto. Probabilmente hanno capito male. Io ho dato lo stesso riferimento che ho dato a te, dopo aver sentito Andrea. Comunque dai miei input ci ha lavorato l'Ed ad interim con WMF, non so se loro abbiano tirato fuori la frase da altre considerazioni. --Ilario (talk) 17:54, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Schulze method[edit]

Hello Nemo. I was reading this old discussion and I noticed that you have made a mistake! The following quotation is not from Markus Schulze, but someone claiming to be RRichie:

The Schulze method is a very defensible voting method to use when electing one person, but it's too bad that a winner-take-all is used to elect three seats. Although unlikely, it means that 49% of voters might strongly disagree with the views of the winners. Many NGO's use voting methods where about a third voters could have the power to elect one of three seats.

By the way, I'm here to ask you what happened next? Didn't you started an RFC to switch back to Schulze method? I got tired delving into old discussions for finding some clues! so I decided to ask you directly. I have already found that 2013 election committee was not organized well and a disproportionate load was carried by User:Risker. I also think that she was the brains behind the plan of switch from Schulze to conventional Support/Abstain/Oppose voting system.

We have formed an investigating committee to choose the most appropriate method for our ArbCom elections and we are now considering different voting system. We lean towards Schulze method because our community has suffered a lot from numerous loopholes in the conventional S/A/O system in the past 6 elections. We are interested to know the story behind this switch.

Do you exactly know why the 2015 election committee decided to keep the S/A/O system? 4nn1l2 (talk) 20:56, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

You said that the French Wikipedia uses the Condorcet method. But as far as I know using a simple Condorcet method can produce a loop (A>B, B>C, C>A). All of the works that Markus Schulze has done is to come up with a brilliant idea to break this loop! I really got surprised to know that French Wikipedians use a simple Condorcet method!

Wishlist Survey template[edit]

Nemo, I reverted your edit to the Wishlist Survey template. The survey is important for our team. I know that there are previous wishlists, but I don't think that our current survey should be haunted by old lists. The Community Tech team is new, and we want to set a standard process for how we define and prioritize projects. Pointing people to other pages will confuse the people that we're talking to right now, and I think it's disruptive. Please don't do that again. DannyH (WMF) (talk) 20:06, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

DannyH (WMF), WTF is going on? Not only it's inappropriate to just cancel someone's edit because you simply do not like it, you have also protected the template so now it's impossible for non-admins to e.g. make it translatable so that people who do not speak English could understand what it says. --Base (talk) 20:39, 11 November 2015 (UTC)
Base, good point. I wasn't thinking about the translations. I unprotected the template. DannyH (WMF) (talk) 20:49, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

machine translation[edit]

I do mean to lump Google and all other machine translation, speaking as a linguist. Translation is far more involved than most people realize, and since we humans still dont really know how human language works, there is no way to program a machine, which still functions fundamentally differently from the human brain. For example, machines cannot take context into account and so will often give the wrong translation of a single word, when there is more than one possibility. In addition, languages often divide abstract concepts differently... the less related the two are, the more likely this is to happen. I dont mean to say that there will never be adequate machine translation, but we are a long way from that.Thelmadatter (talk) 13:42, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Help decide the future of Wikimania[edit]

Wikimania logo with text.svg

The Wikimedia Foundation is currently running a consultation on the value and planning process of Wikimania, and is open until 18 January 2016. The goals are to (1) build a shared understanding of the value of Wikimania to help guide conference planning and evaluation, and (2) gather broad community input on what new form(s) Wikimania could take (starting in 2018).

After reviewing the consultation, we'd like to hear your feedback on on this survey.

In addition, feel free to share any personal experiences you have had at at a Wikimedia movement conference, including Wikimania. We plan to compile and share back outcomes from this consultation in February.

With thanks,

I JethroBT (WMF) (talk), from Community Resources 23:46, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for help[edit]

Thanks for the help on the new project concept Reporter's Notebook. I see job one is to search prior and existing proposals to check for dupes, overlaps, synergies, etc. Thanks for the Wikijournals lead.

Is there a way to get a listing of project title and project description extracted from the New sister project proposal template fields to facilitate review of all other projects? Getting the category(s) tagged would also be great. Eg rows of:
project title | project description | category(ies) tags

would be great for skimming. Thanks! Rjlabs (talk) 23:16, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

Probably not. Nemo 08:33, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Notice of removal of global bot status from one or various accounts of yours[edit]

Hello Nemo bis. You are being contacted as owner of one or more accounts flagged with global bot status. This is to inform you that pursuant §1.1.4 of the global bot policy as amended by this RFC one or various of the global bots which you operate are inactive in the terms laid out by the global bot policy. As such, global bot status from those account(s) have been removed. This message is being left on Meta-Wiki and on your homewiki. We thank you for your work as global bot operator. If you have any questions or concerns, you can raise them at the Stewards' Noticeboard on Meta-Wiki. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 11:34, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Global bot[edit]

This message is being left on your talk page at Meta-Wiki and those of your home wiki(s). Sorry for the duplicates.

Dear global bot operator: Some days ago you received a message in which you were informed that one or various accounts you hold lost a global bot flag because of inactivity. Due to a mistake, messages informing about this were not sent before removal took place as policy mandates. As such, if you think your bot will be active again on global bot duties, you can request the restoration of the global bot flag on the stewards' noticeboard at Meta-Wiki within the next two (2) weeks after this message has been posted. Please note that this removal was purely procedural based on inactivity. If you have any questions, you can reach me on my talk page at Meta-Wiki. Please accept my apologies in advance for this. Best regards. -- MediaWiki message delivery (talk) on behalf of MarcoAurelio at 18:11, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

Towards a New Wikimania results[edit]

Wikimania logo with text.svg

Last December, I invited you to share your views on the value of Wikimedia conferences and the planning process of Wikimania. We have completed analysis of these results and have prepared this report summarizing your feedback and important changes for Wikimania starting in 2018 as an experiment. Feedback and comments are welcome at the discussion page. Thank you so much for your participation. I JethroBT (WMF), Community Resources, 22:47, 8 February 2016 (UTC)


Thank you for your message of 2014. I don't, however, see why not having contributors who upload a lot of content that needs deleting is a problem for a wiki. OTOH, I also don't see how you determined a ratio between correct and incorrect uploads to begin with. Aliter (talk) 15:23, 17 February 2016 (UTC)


Are you back on wikimedia-l? I know you follow discussions or maybe look at archives but it was nice to read your opinions. Just checking if you are still avoiding or you re-joined? Theo10011 (talk) 19:40, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

I agree, I've been missing your voice in those discussions. -Pete F (talk) 00:46, 25 February 2016 (UTC)
I think I won't consider subscribing to wikimedia-l again until I read a public apology by Austin to me, Odder and the list subscribers for the facta nefanda. Such an apology, rather than lies and stonewalling, should of course contain reassurances on the future transparency of moderation actions and concrete guarantees on the non-censorship of the list. For now, I don't consider it a productive use of my time to submit myself to the mailing list's dictators nor to give a contribution to the discussion which is evidently not so valued by the list subscribers; other lists are more productive.
In the meanwhile, I try not to read the archives. I consider myself mostly healed, but sometimes I can't resist reading some messages (only 925 in the last 5 months according to my browser history). When the unfortunate happens, I comment on the wiki or (for friends) by private email. Nemo 11:15, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

New address for messages etc on Welsh language Wiki[edit]

Revisione informatichese[edit]

Ciao, mi sono messo a tradurre Affiliate-selected Board seats/2016/Nominations/Kunal Mehta/it che il guaglione mi ispirava ma mi sono perso nel gergo informatico. Puoi revisionare e migliorarlo? Ho imparato molto documentandomi ma non suonerà mai "normale" per chi smanetta secondo me. Inutile che perda tempo a tradurre meglio se si capisce il senso generale e se in quel tempo posso tradurre il grosso di qualche altro profilo.--Alexmar983 (talk) 13:59, 12 March 2016 (UTC)

Mi fa piacere saperlo ma giusto per puntiglio 1) non è "selezionata", io le sto progressivamente traducendo tutte. Ho iniziato solo da questa perché mi ispirava, una volta iniziato ne ho già fatta un'altra (lo svedese) e sto finendo l'iberoamericano. 2) non è una traduzione, ma una revisione. Poi fai pure cosa di ispira :)--Alexmar983 (talk) 10:26, 14 March 2016 (UTC)
Ok. meno male. ma se ti avessi chiesto una domanda specifica su una parola specifica senza dire da dove veniva, ti avrei messo in una situazione poco confortevole?

Zero local media files[edit]

List of Wikipedias without local media files[edit]

Maybe more small Wikipedias can be converted to have zero local images. One candidate . Delete the 12 files and done.

List of Wikipedias without local media files 02:07, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Interesting list, nice to have its own page. You can help with this by yourself: just transfer appropriate files to Commons and mark with {{delete}} the local copies. Personally I like to help with the future uploads, mostly; your is a valuable, complementary work. Nemo 16:45, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

In Robin's list (hopefully soon sortable), if there are 0 local files and no license, then "Soft-disabled" could be changed to "Disabled due to lack of MediaWiki:Licenses"? E.g. could be changed. Do you know, how this could be done? If not, could you research it? 21:07, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Why would you do that? MediaWiki:Licenses can be edited any time, the configuration is more stable. Nemo 21:11, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
The iawiki policy on images says that only Commons is to be used. There is no need for soft-disabled. 0/fully is the tightest config for non-closed wikis. Who can change that config? 21:26, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
For wikis where the policy already prohibits local uploads, just request a configuration change to fully disable uploading. Nemo 21:37, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
Could you help me, and do it for iawiki? The ia:Wikipedia:Politica pro le uso de imagines is active since 2007 [5]. 22:14, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
Done, but I can't always be the one who asks disabling local uploads. ;-) Someone else has to make such requests too. You could create a throw-away account for the purpose if you don't want to edit as a registered user. Nemo 22:20, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
Great. I understand. For throw-away I would probably need a throw-away email address too, since the last time I tried to do something in phabricator I was asked for an email address. Privacy should be better respected. Anyway, that is another playground :-). Back to zero local, I find pretty helpful as it also has a count-column. Currently there are 39 with zero, including Aydghe with -10. Next DB update should list ~12 more. Thanks for all your work on this, I see your name in many places related to this. 23:13, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Maybe a better brand: Zero local media files. now has 52. 00:40, 19 March 2016 (UTC) ... with the 20 wikis just filed to Nahid, 72 is close :-) 02:45, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

Removing zeropedias at Local uploads policy/taking stock [6]. More can be removed if Nahid has processed the 20-wiki-request from last night. 10:29, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

Requests for transfer to Commons[edit]

All other files in the respective wiki were checked (please confirm each, they can then be made zeropedias):

Have you tried using toollabs:commonshelper? I don't fancy processing such requests on my own. Nemo 10:55, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
Needs OAuth. Would really like if you could do these, so they can be set to zero. Nahid already helps with deletions, so I don't want to ask him. 12:41, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
Those that have less than 1000 articles and are not closed might soon be all zero local. I worked through List of Wikipedias/Table#100.2B_articles. After 00:00 the table will display more zeros, thanks to Nahid. 17:04, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
I now asked Nahid for these two transfers. 22:43, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
  • xal:Special:ListFiles 5 files left. Transfer xal:File:Todo3.png ? I marked the wiki.png already for deletion. Maybe also transfer "Wikipedia-xal-logo-byTsebeen.png", if transfer is not allowed it should be deleted as there is no EDP. 09:52, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

Upload config[edit]

At , gomwiki is the only zerowiki that has upload enabled. 2 admins, 47 active users. Could become problematic easily. 13:37, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

You should propose locally that upload be disabled and then we file the request of configuration change if nobody disagrees. Nemo 13:48, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
Before that, I would like to understand Upload config (page started). Robin's tool has several values that are not documented in the page. 17:40, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

Meaning of zero[edit]

I thought zero is an easy concept in the context of natural numbers. Talk:List of Wikipedias/Table#Wrong file count - Special:Statistics differs from Special:ListFiles. Something critical for Phabricator, is it there already or is there another wontfix-text? 23:41, 20 March 2016 (UTC)


1) dawiki went zero today, but counter has "2", similar to eswiki that has "1". (list) Could this be made a task in Phabricator? 2) Removing files from closed wikis - is this a task for Phabricator? 14:33, 30 March 2016 (UTC)

1) yes, but better not make one request for a single wiki so I asked a few at phabricator:T131306; 2) definitely not, this is a content matter for the community: you can propose at Wikimedia Forum and if there is consensus ask stewards at SN. Nemo 20:10, 30 March 2016 (UTC)
1) add nn, they have more files than the counter shows. 2) What community can a closed Wiki have? @SN Nahid left a message [7] that seems to indicate the SMWT people cannot delete files in closed Wikis. Temporary re-opening (via Phabricator?) might be a solution. 09:56, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
What is the reason for not adding nn? 02:48, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
1) nn doesn't fall in the criteria I indicated in the bug and it's never wise to change site requests radically after creation. If you also want to correct non-negative file counts with errors higher than 1, make a list and we'll file a request. 2) I confirm my answer above. Nemo 07:27, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
1) negative + manual. nn is manual. Your statement is illogic. 12:46, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
1) As you didn't want to add it to the Phab Task, Dereckson has been asked on MW user talk and he announced to run the script for nn too [8]. 11:01, 9 April 2016 (UTC)
1) You wrote "criteria I indicated in the bug". I did check nn against description. Now I just saw the task name "Reset file count statistics on a few wikis with negative/off-by-one errors". That also falls under the "criteria ...". My claim of illogical was illogical. 12:08, 11 April 2016 (UTC)


Can you make a list and count showing which and how many Wikipedias still have a local Wiki.png? 17:34, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

I like local Wiki.png. Nemo 13:54, 21 May 2016 (UTC)
Any local file may have a name of a file in Commons. Any name collision can result in false inclusions or other kind of references if done via Wikidata. Therefore any local file is preventing easy use of Wikidata. Apart from dynamic infoboxes there are also automated lists, e.g. in iawiki ia:Special:Contributiones/ListeriaBot, would probably not be save with local files. 09:27, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

Status and progress tracking for Wikipedias[edit]

  • 1) Median of file count is now below 100. 2) 110 WPs have zero local media files. 3) Total local files 2 413 057 (plus 7 571 from 2 405 486 on 2016-01-01) 09:30, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

wmf:Resolution:Licensing policy[edit]

Urdu Wikipedia[edit]

Hello. Thank you very much!Thank you very much! for highlighting copyvio and unused Urdu Wikipedia files on Urdu Wikipedia. While most of the files asked by you have been nuked, there are some files while are in use / Wikipedia screenshots / historical logos, proposed symbols, etc which I found difficult to delete and hence I listed them in my talk page. These possibly require other treatment (either retaining as it is for fair use or movement to commons, depending the nature of the content, which we will see after some time). If there is anything else, plz discuss it on my talk page there. --Muzammil (talk) 18:41, 21 March 2016 (UTC)

WP screenshots can go to Commons. 00:43, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

WMF:R:LP - anniversary[edit]

Today it is the ninth anniversary of wmf:Resolution:Licensing policy. 06:57, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the note. I'll feast when the resolution will be actually respected. :D Nemo 07:05, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
roa-rup has 467 files, more than 50% unused. Is there a list of Wikipedias showing the unused files? Maybe there are more such cases. Switching to zero makes control of LP easier, just a number to watch. Actually, it is a lot of time wasting. All files could go to and be managed by a WikiBase. Commons can be retained as a brand for Free Content. The current Commons system of storing information about the files is complicated: categories, templates, plain text, info in the files itself. I feast when the following are merged: Commmons (shared files, namespace File), Wikidata (shared data, namespace Item+Property), Source (namespace Source), Meta (shared [global] user pages, namespace User) and all other WMF public file storages. 09:23, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
Dreaming off. would be a solution for several smaller wikis. Why was that not done? 09:54, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
I'm not interested in making fair use easier. Your comment is more suitable for the proposal NonFreeWiki. Nemo 14:59, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
@sentence 1: Interesting. I am personally fine with having all non-free stuff deleted. That would probably mean company pages without logos (e.g. Coca-Cola) and leaving out many Coat of Arms. Person-photos will become free, so I would not care here. @sentence 2: I found that after posting. In the talk page some people proposed to open up Commons and just tag files there, to reduce number of deletions. After deleting, no ordinary user can review the file anymore. BTW: I come from iawiki. They don't even have local data in infoboxes anymore, they only use Wikidata and that means all images in infoboxes have to come from Commons. Ideally one could also stop local categorization-tags and maybe delete all local user pages and user boxes. So people can focus on collaborative content instead. And all dab pages are at "X (disambiguation)", almost all X redirect to that page. No discussion on primary topic and no related page moves :-) Flat/Minimal/Lean/Low overhead Wikipedia. 21:55, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

Annual Plan draft[edit]

Hello, Nemo.

Your cleanup in translation and punctuation have been very appreciated, but please do talk about substantive changes before making them, as per the request at the top of the page. I've explained my removal of your addition on the talk page. Personally, I think percentages may make sense, although I think probably a different percentage makes more sense. But it's important that we sync changes in the document, and discussing them will make sure that we all agree on what those changes should be. --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 13:59, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

Perché in EU policy/FoP Consultation/Action il logo della Commissione che vedo è quello in greco? fammi sapere per quella traduzione--Alexmar983 (talk) 09:23, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

ma sì credo sia carino anche io. Sai lavoravo alla commissione quando adottarono il logo in via definitiva (o comunque lo diffusero massicciamente a furia di decalcomanie e pannelli), l'idea era dare "identità " visuale ai rami della UE (parlamento, commissione, agenzie, corte di conti) oltre la bandiera con loghi specifici. Il punto è che usare la scritta in greco invece che magari in olandese, che pure non è inglese, allontana l'attenzione dal logo, e da ex dipendete a cui avevano raccomandato molto sul prendere cognizione proprio dl logo in sè, la cosa l'ho notata subito.--Alexmar983 (talk) 10:20, 8 May 2016 (UTC)
