Welcome to Meta!


Hello Psychoslave!, 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). Happy editing! -- Mikhailov Kusserow (talk) 02:07, 28 April 2009 (UTC)Reply

Novels, etc.


If you're looking for a place to post miscellaneous content, there's always RationalWikiWikiWiki. It's pretty much anything goes over there; whatever people want to import, unless it's meaningless gibberish, we're willing to host. We can create Poem:, Novel:, etc. namespaces if you plan on posting that kind of content. We already have Essay: and Recipe: namespaces. Leucosticte (talk) 10:56, 28 November 2012 (UTC)Reply

Thank you for you suggestion. The project announce "rational discourses" as a guideline. I can't see how this would match with poetry, novels and so on. That could do the trick for essays, but wikikultur is intended with larger focus. --Psychoslave (talk) 11:10, 28 November 2012 (UTC)Reply
Note, I copied your intervention on the wikikultur discussion page. --Psychoslave (talk) 11:14, 28 November 2012 (UTC)Reply
The scope of the wiki can simply be expanded to include poetry, novels, etc. in addition to rational discourses. Since we have virtually no other users, it doesn't really matter what we do, because there's no one around to object. I own the wiki so I make the rules.

May I ask a few questions? There are some obscure words which made the whole translating work difficult. What's the meaning of "scene" in the tagline? It makes no sense in Chinese.--H2NCH2COOH (talk) 11:00, 30 November 2012 (UTC)Reply

Note : I answer you on the wikikultur proposal page, so the conversation is not lost. --Psychoslave (talk) 17:52, 30 November 2012 (UTC)Reply
Ok. Je le ferai!  Raoli  23:46, 30 November 2012 (UTC)Reply
Can I use "舞台(stage)" instead of "scene"? It's really difficult to translate "Culture Scene / Cultural Scene" into Chinese word for word.--H2NCH2COOH (talk) 02:09, 1 December 2012 (UTC)Reply
Well, I can't say for 舞台, but stage should do the trick. In my native language (french), you say scène. As far as I know there's no word which you could translate stage with all its meaning, but for the area, in any theatre, generally raised, upon which an audience watches plays or other public ceremonies, certainly you would use scène as a translation. So I would say, yes, go for it. --Psychoslave (talk) 17:02, 1 December 2012 (UTC)Reply
Le problème réside dans le fait que tout n'est pas traduisible. J'ai ajouté des sections manquantes en français. S'il vous arrive de nouveaux problèmes techniques, vous pouvez compter sur moi. :) De rien  Raoli  23:21, 10 December 2012 (UTC)Reply

I forgot: Great idea

Trash disposal

I think it was a great idea of you to install the Wiktionary future page. I still see the danger of getting something like a trash disposal. But aren’t similar pages the very same? And don’t these trash disposals sometimes contain valuable content that only needs to be mined?

The most difficult things at the beginning will be:

  • To be able to evaluate what the real benefit of a proposal is in WT Project dimension (already mentioned).
  • How to structure the proposals (already mentioned)?
  • Do we succeed to explain basics, what we are discussing about, what the proposition is good for, even in terms understandable by users, not in depth experienced in all the buzzword bingo language or project details?

NoX (talk) 16:38, 7 April 2013 (UTC)Reply

Ok, thank you. I'll see what I can do to avoid such a path to trash disposal, if you have some concrete suggestions, I'll be happy and grateful to hear them. --Psychoslave (talk) 09:15, 8 April 2013 (UTC)Reply
You recently added on title level 2 (===) "Thinking out of the classical online Wiktionary format and reading usage". In my opinion this is a structuring title for proposals. Your proposals start on title level 3 (====). I think we should lift all your titles by one level.
At the beginning we should add a structuring title like preliminaries or so. There we should add things common to all proposals. E.g. a model for proposals.
Proposal title level 2 (===)
Title Abstract level 3 (====) Very short meaning of the proposal.
Title Current Situation level 3 (====) Describing the shortcomings of the current situation.
Title Recommended improvement level 3 (====) Describing them, perhaps using subtitles on level 4 (=====).
Title Comments on proposal level 3 (====). Initially empty, filled by others.
We should ask Denny to remove his questions (I’ll add a link to this on his talk page).
The title “Targets, business-model of the proposals presented here?” should be left at the preliminaries but it needs improvement in the sense of imagined business model for proposals (I couldn’t find a real one). I think to do that.
Which other structuring titles should be proposed (this is merely a brain storming)?
  • Proposals concerning the user surface (everything the user sees or hears (on his screen, tablet, or phone)).
  • Proposals concerning the data storage (how data should be better stored)
  • Proposals concerning the data content (mark-up, mark-up models, language paragraph sequences etc.)
  • Proposals concerning linguistic details or specialties (things only language specialists can contriubute)
Perhaps we should put this on the discussion page and restructure the current content afterwards. NoX (talk) 20:02, 8 April 2013 (UTC)Reply
Thank you, your ideas are great, I totally agree that we should move all this to the discussion page so it has a better visibility, and I'm ok with your restructuring propose. I probably won't have time for it tomorrow, and now it's time to sleep for me. But fell free to begin/do it. :) -Psychoslave (talk) 22:06, 8 April 2013 (UTC)Reply
Thanks for contributing my proposal for Proposal-Structure (I assume it was you ( (talk)‎, having forgotten to log in. If so, you can simply undo and redo it on the history page after being logged in). I'm currently a little bit short in time. I'm sure the others will go with us and accept restructuring and the strong need for structure. One thing I didn't understand (and this seems to me difficult to pass to you, because image transfer in WT is a little bit cumbersome): Why did you remove the non-Latin (Russian, Chinese) signs? Don't you see them in your screen-presentation? To me, showing them was merely a gag. For another user it is part of its WIKI-Name-content and by adding question marks you made its name becoming red, unknown. NoX (talk) 10:50, 12 April 2013 (UTC)Reply
Yes it was me, if I undo and redo it, I suppose it will keep track of it in the history anyway and just cluter it. It's possible I inadvertently removed some strings, as I made copy/paste in vim to easily reindent sections with regexp. And it looks like my currente desktop have problem to paste unicode within vim, so if data was erased, that's probably the reason. It should of course be restored and I apologise for my mistake. --Psychoslave (talk) 12:45, 12 April 2013 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for the support on the project (global economic map)


Would you be interested to help re-create other country articles. Copy-paste onto your sandbox is the easiest way.

I began working on the China article in case you were interested: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Mcnabber091/sandbox Mcnabber091 (talk) 03:28, 13 April 2013 (UTC)Reply

I guess you are talking about Global Economic Map. Of course an article on China is very interesting most human live there after all. It may even be interesting to have more than one more page for so large regions. I would be happy to help, but what are you expecting exactly ? If its just translation, I guess I can help. If you ask me to create equivalent page for other region, you will have to provide me more information on how I could do such a work properly, I have no information in Economics and don't even have a clue where I could gather relevant information. --Psychoslave (talk) 12:54, 13 April 2013 (UTC)Reply
I am looking for volunteers to help add new articles and data to the list of countries. At this point the entire project will be in English. You don't have to be an economist to find the data. Google is the best place to look. Also check out government webpages. The references on 'Economy of the U.S.' are good examples on where to look. If you have any questions post it on my talk wall.Mcnabber091 (talk) 08:03, 17 April 2013 (UTC)Reply
Ok, I'll see if I find time to do that. --Psychoslave (talk) 08:57, 17 April 2013 (UTC)Reply

Programmation Wikidata-dictionary


Salut ! Je voulais savoir si tu as des connaissances en programmation, et si tu serais potentiellement intéressé pour adapter Wikidata (ou plutôt son extension Wikibase) pour en faire un dictionnaire.

J'ai rajouté une section là Requests_for_comment/Adopt_OmegaWiki#Interested_programmers, qui n'est pas forcément à propos d'OmegaWiki, ça peut être la réimplémentation d'un système similaire sous Wikidata. GerardM et Sj semblent penser que c'est la voie à suivre. --Kip (talk) 08:45, 3 June 2013 (UTC)Reply

Oui, j’ai des connaissances en programmation, et oui je serais intéressé par un tel projet. Cela étant, il y a de nombreux projets que je trouve intéressant, et il faut que je mette un peu d’ordre dans tout cela pour définir auxquels je peux espérer participer étant donné la scandaleuse contrainte qui limite les journées à 24h, à quoi s’ajoute l’ odieuse nécessité de dormir, et aussi le besoin d’avoir quelques activités loin de tout écran pour raisons sanitaires et sociales. :D Toujours est-il qu’actuellement il me semble nécessaire de faire des efforts de spécifications et de rassemblement des travaux déjà en cours pour établir des plans d’action cohérent et qui évite le gaspillage d’énergie dans des efforts redondants inutiles (je ne dis pas que toute redondance l’est nécessairement). À cette fin j’ai débuté la page Wiktionary future à laquelle je t’invite à participer en y décrivant tes intentions et en les mettant en perspectives des intentions des autres contributeurs. --Psychoslave (talk) 09:04, 3 June 2013 (UTC)Reply
J'ai le même problème que toi. Heureusement, la météo pourrie de cette année m'oblige à rester au chaud devant mon pc :-)
J'ai déjà vu la page Wiktionary future, mais je ne suis pas sûr où y ajouter mes idées. Il faudrait d'abord la restructurer un peu (je vois que tu viens d'y ajouter une proposition de restructuration qui me semble bonne), et n'hésite pas à bouger un peu les commentaires des uns et des autres, éventuellement en les mettant dans la page de discussion pour que la page principale reste bien organisée.
Actuellement je ne vois pas trop en quoi c'est différent de la structure d'OmegaWiki, mais il y a peut-être un détail qui m'a échappé. Dans tous les cas, je pense que les deux initiatives vont dans la même direction, et donc je soutiens les deux ;-)
Au fait, ma question plus haut sur tes talents de programmeurs fait suite à la remarque de Sj User_talk:Kipmaster#Update_to_OmegaWiki_RfC. Pour l'instant je bloque sur "Recruit wiktionary-editors from a few of the largest wiktionaries", car il me semble que ces éditeurs sont en fait content avec ce qu'ils ont (cf. leurs messages sur la page de discussion de "Wiktionary future" et leur opposition à "Adopt OmegaWiki"), et que ceux qui ne sont pas contents n'éditent pas. --Kip (talk) 09:22, 3 June 2013 (UTC)Reply
Lors du dernier hackathon j’ai pu rencontrer d’autres contributeurs très actifs du Wiktionnaire, et il n’en était pas moins motivés à bosser sur sa structuration. Donc je n’ai pas l’impression que ceux qui éditent sont opposés à l’idée de mieux structurer de façon à mieux propager les contributions entre les divers chapitres. Je peux relayer ton appel sur le Wiktionnaire si tu veux (ou tu peux toi même y présenter l’idée dans la Wikidémie). --Psychoslave (talk) 09:59, 3 June 2013 (UTC)Reply
Ok, c'est cool alors, merci pour l'info :) Alors c'est juste que ceux qui sont contre sont ceux qui râlent le plus fort. C'est dommage que ceux qui sont intéressés ne le font pas savoir plus activement... Il faudrait que j'essaie de participer à un hackathon une prochaine fois. --Kip (talk) 11:29, 4 June 2013 (UTC)Reply

Salut, j'espère que tu es bien rentré :D Je suis toujours à la recherche d'une solution pour pinguer tous les utilisateurs du groupe Wiktionaire. Une solution qui me semble convenir est celle utilisée sur Wikidata. Elle repose sur plusieurs modèle. En gros, il y a un modèle Template:Participants dans lequel on regroupe tous les participants d'un projet. En en parallèle, on a le modèle Template:Ping group qui permet, à l'aide d'un module lua Module:Wikitext, de convertit la liste des participants en une liste « brute » qui est utilisée par « ping ». Je ne sais pas si c'est très clair mais pour le moment, je sèche sur Template:Participants et en particulier, je pense que c'est d'où vient l'erreur, sur Template:Participants/name. Le résultat est visible sur Wiktionary/Tremendous_Wiktionary_User_Group#Tremendous_affiliates et comme tu vois « Template:Wiktionary/Participants » est affiché en lieu et place de la liste des participants (pour le moment, j'ai mis uniquement Noé et moi.

Ok @MusikAnimal (WMF):, that's fine. I wasn't aware of this additional steps so I just went in the be bold attitude. All the more it wasn't moved to oblivion, so there is really nothing to be disappointed about.

It's great that you're endorsing and encouraging people.

You can just let us know which ones you want to keep here, and we will archive the others for you. Thanks for your understanding. MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 18:12, 13 November 2017 (UTC)Reply

You can archive my Wiktionary proposal, which fortunately is more or less a duplicated with the request of an other user. Also Making Mediawiki MOOC-ready seems to be an already achieved task, I just wasn't aware of it. I think that with this two archived, I fall back to three proposals, don't I? --Psychoslave (talk) 20:01, 13 November 2017 (UTC)Reply
That will do it! Thanks again MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 21:18, 13 November 2017 (UTC)Reply
Oh great the proposal about beta.wikiversity has just been archived, so I have one more slot again. I will have to look at the MOOC extension to see if it indeed provide everything I would expect, especially regarding user progress data persistence in quiz. In the mid time, might the proposal be unarchived @MusikAnimal (WMF):? --Psychoslave (talk) 22:57, 13 November 2017 (UTC)Reply

Tech ambassadors, "take two"


Hello tech ambassador! This month has seen a good influx of new faces in this crew \o/ , so it is time to reactivate our conversations. Now that we have a pretty good coverage of so many different projects, here are some topics for your consideration.

  1. Are there further thoughts on the role itself? I hope the questions available on Meta can help spark them. Please weigh in at Talk:Tech/Ambassadors/List#Tech ambassadors, take 2.
  2. How about we try and organise future collective work in a Phabricator workboard? Talk:Tech/Ambassadors/List#A Phab workboard for us? has all the details to explore this proposal.
  3. Finally, you are also welcome to comment at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T177923, should you happen to have suggestions for the Community Liaisons team, currently wondering how to measure "Wiki projects requesting beta features and other early deployments".

We hope to be able to host a live discussion in early 2018; until then, we're looking forward to hearing from you on Meta! All the best, --Elitre (WMF) (talk), on behalf of the Community Liaisons

Getting started on Phabricator


Greetings, ambassador!

As recently discussed within this group, we are ready to experiment with setting up a project and its related workboard on Phabricator, the platform used in the Wikimedia movement for project management, software bug reporting and feature requests. It will help us coordinate and cooperate better on projects that should require ambassadors' involvement.

For the time being, I'm just asking that you please add your Phabricator nickname next to your name in the ambassadors' table (you can create an account now if you don't have one already). I will send you further information soon! Thanks for your patience as we get to the operational stage of this effort :) Best, --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 14:50, 16 January 2018 (UTC)Reply

@Elitre (WMF):, I use the same nickname in Phabricator, I'm unsure if any edit is required from my part. --Psychoslave (talk) 16:26, 16 January 2018 (UTC)Reply
I think the others are linking to their profile there, that doesn't hurt :) Thanks! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 16:35, 16 January 2018 (UTC)Reply

Bonjour. Désolé pour l'indiscrétion, mais êtes-vous de sexe féminin ? L'accord du participe dans la première phrase ("Lea Lacroix et psychoslave se sont retrouvées") en dépend. --Per utramque cavernam (talk) 13:48, 27 April 2018 (UTC)Reply

Comme laisse à la deviner ma morphologie, effectivement il est bien écrit sur ma carte que je suis de genre masculin. Ceci étant, la phrase étaient tournée avec en tête que Léa et moi même sommes des personnes. Donc le féminin s’applique. Merci par avance de toute correction apporté au texte, et aussi de le faire en conservant cette approche de nous considérer toute deux comme les personnes qui furent les protagonistes de cette réunion. --Psychoslave (talk) 14:28, 27 April 2018 (UTC)Reply

New Tech Ambassadors Phabricator board



You have listed yourself as an active Tech Ambassador, thank you for that!

We have recently set up a board on Phabricator so that you can learn about tasks and updates that are potentially interesting for your community, and take action when necessary. During the pilot phase we are currently in, to avoid confusion, only Wikimedia Foundation's Community Liaisons will mark tasks so that they end up in the various columns. Thanks for your understanding!

Please follow this Phabricator board (learn how to). You'll receive "notifications" for updates in all tasks listed there. In case you choose to receive them as email; we currently expect the volume to be fairly low, but in any case you can learn how to manage it.

If you have any feedback about this board, please leave your questions and comments on the Ambassadors talk page.

All the best, Trizek (WMF) (talk) 13:03, 24 May 2018 (UTC)Reply

Telegram and Mastodon


Wikimedia groups on Telegram most of all need some connection to IRC, so that they avoid becoming a walled garden. There are several channels which already do this in the free software sphere, like Fedora (they use teleirc, I think).

As for Mastodon, I prefer to use an existing instance from some friendly non-profit: the best I found some time ago was quitter.se for GNU social and https://mastodon.partipirate.org/@wikimediaitalia . A better use of our own developer time would be to make tools such as navierstokes reliably work, so that we can mirror all our social channels on Mastodon/GNU social and build some critical mass from there. --Nemo 06:18, 9 August 2018 (UTC)Reply

Thank you @Nemo: for your valuable feedback. I will look at what I can do regarding the set of IRC bridges, as well as your other suggestion. For now I subscribed an account on framapiaf. I don't think IRC provides the feature conveniences that attracts users to platform like Telegram. If you are aware of modern IRC clients that achieve the same level of cross-device UX only using IRC protocol, I would be of course very interested. But I suspect that the protocol itself is not well adapted for this kind of feature set, although I confess this is more a guess as an accustomed end user, not an informed opinion by someone proficient in the protocol specifications. It's the first time navierstokes come into my radar, I'll check that too, thank you. --Psychoslave (talk) 07:02, 9 August 2018 (UTC)Reply
IRC is a bridge to serve all sides. You don't need to have everyone use IRC directly but there are several ways for those who want to use it like Telegram (at some point I found Riot.im was the easiest). At any rate, opening the walled garden is the first step for success with any of those individual solutions. --Nemo 08:29, 9 August 2018 (UTC)Reply

participation for tremendous wiktionary user group in wikimedia summit 2019



For the wikimedia summit 2019 who is going to represent the Tremendous wiktionary user group? was there any consensus arrived at? only three days left for registration of the event. -- Balajijagadesh (talk) 17:34, 14 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

Hi @Balajijagadesh:. No one that I am aware of will go to the summit to represent TWUG. I personally didn't especially pushed for that as it didn't seem obvious that such a move would match the scope of the summit, but I might have mistaken here. Anyway, if you do have suggestions regarding Wikitionary strategic development, please let me know and I'll try my best to match that with some concrete actions.

Cheers, Psychoslave (talk) 06:52, 20 December 2018 (UTC)Reply

Demande de commentaires : Recommandations automatiques de sections d’articles


(Hello. Reaching out to you as you're among the "tech ambassadors" for this language. We'd really appreciate your help this week, and also you spreading the word to other experienced editors willing to lend a hand!)

L’équipe Recherche de Wikimedia développe un nouvel algorithme qui recommande automatiquement aux éditeurs des titres de sections à ajouter dans les articles. Cet algorithme utilise l’apprentissage par machine pour suggérer des sections qui peuvent être appropriées pour l’article, car d’autres articles sur des sujets similaires contiennent ces sections. Les recommandations de sections sont actuellement disponibles sur les Wikipédias en anglais, espagnol, japonais, russe, arabe et français. Nous aimerions que des contributeurs expérimentés comme vous jettent un œil à ces recommandations et fassent des commentaires pour nous aider à les améliorer ! Si les recommandations sont utiles, nous les utiliserons dans des outils pour les contributeurs qui veulent développer les articles au stade d’ébauche.

Nous avons mis sur pied une application de test qui permet d’explorer les recommandations de sections. Une fois que vous aurez essayé l’outil sur certains articles dans votre ou vos langues, commentez sur la page de discussion de commentaires en parlant de la qualité des recommandations. Vous pouvez également donner un avis rapide en utilisant l’outil.

The TWUG on space.wmflabs.org


Hello Psychoslave

A few months ago, WMF opened a new discussion space. Since our user group has some difficulties to communicate (not everyone sees the messages that are posted on Talk:Wiktionary/Tremendous_Wiktionary_User_Group), I asked for a dedicated forum for the TWUG to be opened. It's happening here (there is no topic so far).

From now on, I invite you to follow the category to be informed as soon as a new topic is created. Pamputt (talk) 18:44, 16 September 2019 (UTC)Reply

Community Wishlist Survey 2020



You are getting this message because you've previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey, in either the Wikisource or Wiktionary categories. I wanted to let you know that this year's survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until November 11. Unlike previous years, we are only accepting proposals for non-Wikipedia content projects with no dedicated teams (i.e., Wikibooks, Wiktionary, Wikiquote, Wikisource, Wikiversity, Wikispecies, Wikivoyage, and Wikinews). You can learn more on the survey page.

You can vote on proposals from November 20 to December 2. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won't send out a separate reminder to you about that. We look forward to your participation. Thank you! IFried (WMF) (talk) 18:52, 22 October 2019 (UTC)Reply

AI legislation


Dear Psychoslave,

I contact you since you are marked among the "People who are interested" in Advanced technology page. As you might already know, the EU is working about a regulation of the AI environment, in order to promote its potential and at the same time to protect the citizens from unwanted uses. It is going to be an important moment for achieving the most empowering, safe and clear definition of the rights and duties related to the AI, affecting also Wikimedia's opportunities, not only inside EU. I kindly invite you to participate to the discussion, firstly by commenting the page that is dedicated to it, in order to draft Wikimedia's answers to this legislative initiative of the EU.

The linked page contains the questions from the public consultation by the European Commission on its Artificial Intelligence White Paper.

The EU's survey will remain open until 14 June 2020, but we will take input into account until 31 May 2020.

Thanks, --sNappy(talk) 21:28, 17 May 2020 (UTC)Reply

Hello @Mattia Luigi Nappi:, thanks for this message. Unfortunately I only see it know. I was totally unaware of it, despite my growing interest in this topic.

Armenian speaker


Hello, Psychoslave! You have recently requested help from Armenian speakers and included my name on it. I am sorry, but I don't speak Armenian. If there is a page or category or something telling that I do, it's incorrect. If you ever need a Portuguese speaker however, I will surely help. Cheers! —Teles «Talk ˱C L @ S˲» 14:50, 28 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

Hello, and thanks for you reply. I used the history of the Armenian user group Meta page to determine who might possibly be relevant to contact. Maybe you edited this page for some transversal topic not specifically related to Armenian. Sorry for the noise, if you have better strategies to suggest in such a case, I would be glad to hear about it. Thank you for you proposal to help with Portuguese work. I don't have a specific request requiring this language skill right now.

Voici une première ébauche de page qui sera déplacée sur mediawiki dès que j'aurai suffisamment d'éditions pour être autorisé à le faire (ou que quelqu'un d'autre la déplacera). Merci de répondre sur notre page de discussion ici : Talk:Les sans pagEs#Wikitechstorm 2024

AI call 16 May


Hi, you're getting this message as you've signed up as interested in the topic at the Artificial intelligence page.

You might already be aware of this, but in case you had missed other announcements I wanted to send out a reminder about the Wikimedia AI call which is happening tomorrow, 16 May, at 14:00 UTC. There will be presentations from various parts of the movement, with space for questions and discussion. The call will be recorded, if one prefers to watch if afterwards.

See Wikimedia Foundation Annual Plan/2024-2025/Collaboration/AI call for agenda and sign-up. Johan (WMF) (talk) 14:20, 15 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
