Summarizing comments made on July 24 and later[edit]

Hello. Thank you for summarizing statements on the Cycle 3 of Wikimedia movement. I wonder when you will summarize the comments made on July 24 and later. I appreciate your response please. Thanks again. --George Ho (talk) 17:55, 5 August 2017 (UTC)Reply

Hi George, I have been summarizing all the statements. Can you tell me which source have i missed ? I will summarize that as soon as possible. --SGill (WMF) (talk) 18:00, 5 August 2017 (UTC)Reply
Oh... I see you already did: Strategy/Wikimedia movement/2017/Sources/Cycle 3/Final Summary by challenges. My bad. :( --George Ho (talk) 18:10, 5 August 2017 (UTC)Reply
I apologize for not writing another weekly summary but rather a final summary. --SGill (WMF) (talk) 18:12, 5 August 2017 (UTC)Reply
No, no worries. I didn't notice until now that you wrote a final summary. --George Ho (talk) 18:19, 5 August 2017 (UTC)Reply

Translation markup in Strategy/Wikimedia movement/2017/Sources/Cycle 3/Final Summary by challenges[edit]

Hi! Please don't add numbers for new translation sections manually, as doing in this page (I fixed it). These tags <!--T:NNN--> will be added by Translation Extension after marking new edition for translation, as the translation administrator does. Only named section (with tags like <!--T:Some_name-->) may be added manually. This is used for some special cases, and don't used normally in translated pages. --Kaganer (talk) 15:13, 29 August 2017 (UTC)Reply

Hi! Thank you for educating me about that. So, what should I do when I add new paragraphs in a page ? --SGill (WMF) (talk) 16:18, 29 August 2017 (UTC)Reply
For new paragraphs - nothing special ;) Translation engine will identify new paragraphs and mark them.
But if new text should be added to existinf paragraph, then you need to enclose it with a separate tag "translate". As example, if before our edit markup was like this:
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. 
And you want to add the first paragraph with a new phrase, but so that you do not invalidate existing translations, then your addition should look like this:
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.</translate> <translate>Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.</translate>

Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur.

Google Read Along[edit]

Is the relationship of Wikimedia to this project still active? If so, would either Story-Book Tales or A Pet Reader be appropriate? TE(æ)A,ea. (talk) 01:54, 23 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

@TE(æ)A,ea. Thank you so much for helping in identifying these works. These are definitely appropriate. It would be really nice to get them on Wikisource. Would you be interested to start proofreading them over there? SGill (WMF) (talk) 14:35, 26 April 2021 (UTC)Reply
  • Yes, I would. I should be able to work on these works in the near future, but I am currently working on other work (on and off site). I have just started looking at The Librarian’s Copyright Companion, as well. Could you look for the eligibility of these works, as well?
  • Thank you. In the future, I would like the image to be extracted (from the original .jp2 or .jpg files), as I am not very experienced in that respect. TE(æ)A,ea. (talk) 01:04, 27 April 2021 (UTC)Reply

No announcements on pl ws[edit]

Hello, Could you point out where you copied this User:SGill (WMF)/lists/WS VPs message list data from?
The page for pl ws was wrong and as a result, we were not informed about surveys and ws community meetings for the last two years (Delivery of... to Wikiźródła:Skryptorium failed with an error ...):
see logs

I've made corrections, but it would be good to update the source of this list as well. Zdzislaw (talk) 14:49, 26 November 2022 (UTC)Reply

@Zdzislaw Oh wow! I had no idea about this. My apologies for missing the Polish community from these communications. I got this page from from wikidata Q16503. I am not sure if it would be possible to change it. Thank you for making the change. SGill (WMF) (talk) 10:01, 1 December 2022 (UTC)Reply
