Welcome to Meta![edit]

Hello Tgr!, 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) 14:51, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Translator, We need you![edit]

Dear Tgr,

You have helped us in previous years with translations and for that we are most grateful. Now we turn towards the 2011/12 fundraiser. It may seem forever away, but work has already begun getting everything ready to go. This year we want to have landing pages covering as many countries in as many languages as possible.

Right now, we want to figure out who is interested in translating for the fundraiser. This year we're hoping to have more of a solidified "core" group of translators that we can count on to have work done by a few key dates, but we'd also welcome help from people who are willing to just help out when they can.

If you would be interested please take a look at this little sign-up survey and fill it out http://survey.wikimedia.org/index.php?sid=13638&newtest=Y&lang=en. With that we can start building a list of people and filling any gaps in the languages we serve.

Many Thanks

New unified design of Magyar Main Page - need your help for this work[edit]

Dear colleague! Please help us for transfer Magyar Main Page (Kezdőlap) to new unified design! Going to Template:Other languages/Template:Main Page and clicking on the relevant red link and translating that. Next step - click to "edit-link" in every section and translate it with similar way. After finished need replace text in Kezdőlap to transcluding of {{Main Page/hu}} (as in Russian). Thanks in advance ;) --Kaganer 09:49, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for starting version of Template:Main Page/hu. Maybe you do finish this work? It would be perfect! --Kaganer 22:29, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Quick help needed: Editor survey banner[edit]

Hi, thanks for your help with the Editor survey translation . Can you take a quick look at the CentralNotice banner at Research:Wikipedia_Editors_Survey_November_2011/CentralNotice#hu ? Thanks Akhanna 22:20, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

This barnstar is given to you for your help with the 2011 fundraiser translation.

Hi! I just want to thank you and give you this barnstar for your help with the translation of the 2011 fundraiser! The fundraiser was the best we ever had, both in terms of the amount we collected and in terms of number of translations. We couldn't have done either one without the help we got from you and other translators. If you are interested, we made a report, which has some statistics about the translations.

And: I have one more request, and that is that you take this survey. You may have got an e-mail about it, and if you did, please ignore this. But if you didn't it would be great if you would take this survey too, so we can learn to improve the translation experience.

Again, thanks for your help with translations – you're awesome! Jon Harald Søby (WMF) 14:32, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

Template:Main Page/hu[edit]

Hi! Maybe you can find some time to finish this translation? It would be great! --Kaganer (talk) 13:14, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

I do hope to find time for that sometime, but it definitely won't be soon, sorry. --Tgr (talk) 17:29, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Np, thanks fror starting ;) I still try to find another translator for this. --Kaganer (talk) 17:05, 3 April 2012 (UTC)
Nagyjából megcsináltam. Rá tudnál nézni? --Tacsipacsi (talk) 23:06, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
Köszi! Ránéztem, jól néz ki. --Tgr (talk) 01:36, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
Még van néhány dolog, amit le kéne fordítani, ebben tudsz segíteni? Másrészt esetleg közzé lehetne tenni? --Tacsipacsi (talk) 08:16, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Feedback for new survey?[edit]

Hi Tgr, I noticed you gave some feedback on the last iteration of the Editor Survey that was run late last year. We're getting ready to run another version of this survey, and was wondering if you'd be willing to give us some feedback again? You can read the questions at Research:Wikipedia_Editor_Survey_August_2012/Questions, and if you'd like to see how the survey will look in its final form, you can see it here. Feel free to take the survey to see how it works, or if you see any other problems with it. Thanks for your help!! Christine (WMF) (talk) 04:04, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

Help with Hungarian translations[edit]

Hi Tgr, I am contacting you as I would highly appreciate your help to translate and proofread three short texts from English to Hungarian for WMF's multilingual fundraising campaign that will be starting in two weeks. I kindly ask you to go onto the Fundraising Translation Hub https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fundraising/Translation, and click on the three texts available for translation. I would be most grateful if you would spread this message and ask fellow English/Hungarian Wikipedians to do the same. Please reach out to me by email, jrobell@wikipedia.org if you have any questions. A warm thank you in advance. Kind regards, Jrobell (talk) 14:05, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

Translate some names for hundreds software projects including MediaWiki[edit]

Hello, I'm writing you because you subscribed to a Language support team. As you know, Wikimedia projects exist in almost 300 languages; supporting them all is a big effort so we partner with other organisations. One small but visible thing we miss is that many interwiki links in sidebar (among others) don't offer a translation of the language name when hovered. We're now able to translate 100 more language names in your language.

If you're interested, I can create you an account to submit translations on the CLDR web tool (within June 14): please send an email to ask one and I'll follow up with instructions. On CLDR you can translate and tweak many other things, if you desire; your work will impact hundreds of software projects. Thanks, Nemo 17:58, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Superprotect status[edit]

Dear Tgr, since you are an administrator on a wiki from which no user participated in this discussion, I'd like to make sure you are aware of some recent events which may alter what the Wikimedia Foundation lets you do on your wiki: Superprotect.

Please sign new Wikimedia confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information by 31 December[edit]

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

Wikimedia Foundation logo - vertical (2012-2016).svg

As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are beginning the transition to the new policy.

An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.

The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that OTRS volunteers sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have been identified as an OTRS volunteer and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy. If you do not sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015, you will lose your OTRS access. OTRS volunteers have a specific agreement available, if you have recently signed the general confidentiality agreement for another role (such as CheckUser or Oversight), you do not need to sign the general agreement again, but you will still need to sign the OTRS agreement.

Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign

If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me (gvarnum@wikimedia.org). Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain your OTRS access. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

Thank you,

Re: VisualEditor feedback page on huwiki[edit]

Hey, thanks for your message. If you want to commit to watch that page, that's ok: we can re-evaluate your decision at some point next year :) Thanks for the link to that conversation. Seems to me hu.wiki would then be the perfect candidate to test the single edit tab, when it's time. --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 18:05, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Should FuzzyBot remove all potentially outdated translations?[edit]

Hello, thanks for adding multiple new translations in your language here at Meta-Wiki in recent years. Please join the discussion with your opinion: Should FuzzyBot automatically remove all potentially outdated translations?. Nemo (talk) 12:00, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

2016 Community Wishlist Survey[edit]

Hi,

You’re getting this message because you participated in the 2015 Community Wishlist Survey and we want to make sure you don't miss it this year – or at least can make the conscious choice to ignore if it you want to. The 2015 survey decided what the Community Tech team should work on during 2016. It was also the focus of Wikimedia hackathons and work by other developers. You can see the status of wishes from the 2015 wishlist at 2015 Community Wishlist Survey/Results.

The 2016 Community Wishlist Survey is now open for wishes. You can create proposals until November 20. You will be able to vote on which wishes you think are best or most important between November 28 and December 12. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 11:17, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

./problemImages.js[edit]

Hello Tgr, I've bit updated/extended the script ./problemImages.js. If you find it useful you could made a bit promotion for it!? ;-) Regards -- User: Perhelion 15:18, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Tech ambassadors, "take two"[edit]

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[edit]

Ambox warning green construction.svg

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) 14:59, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

Commond deletion bot requirements[edit]

I'm contacting you because you supported the Commons Deletion Bot proposal in the 2017 Community Wishlist. The Wishlist team has finalized the draft specifications for how the bot will work, and are seeking review in confirming or discussing the plans for the bot. If you have some time, please take a look and leave a comment. Thanks, happy editing to you. - Keegan (WMF) (talk) 19:06, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

Timeless Newsletter • Issue 1[edit]

Wikimedia beetle.svg
Newsletter • July 2018

Welcome to the first issue of the Timeless newsletter! This issue is being sent or forwarded to everyone who has at some point expressed an interest in the project, give or take, as well as a couple of other potentially relevant pages, so if you would like to continue (or start) receiving this newsletter directly, please sign up for further updates on the meta page.


The news:

The Timeless grant has been selected for funding, and the project is now underway!

While I've had a somewhat slow start working on the project for health reasons, I'm pleased to announce that everything described in the proposal is now either happening, or on its way to happening.

Current progress:

  • The project now has a hub on Meta to serve as a directory for the various related pages, workboards, and local discussions and help pages. It's probably incomplete, especially with regards to specific language projects that might have local pages for Timeless, so if you know of others, please add them!
  • Outreach: I've been talking to various people and groups directly about skinning, desktop/mobile interfaces, project management, specific component support, and other things, and have begun to compile a very shoddy list of skinning problems and random issues on mw.org based on this. Some of this may inform the direction of this project, or possibly this project will result in building a more proper list that can then be used for other things. We shall see.
  • Some development - task triage, code review, bug fixing, and various rabbit holes involving ...overflows.

General plan for the future:

  • Triage the rest of the workboard.
  • Catch up with all the talkpages and other bug reports that have been left various other places that are not the project workboard
  • Do all the bug fixes/features/other things!
  • Some proposals aimed at Commons and Wikisource in particular (maybe, we'll see)

Essentially, the grant as written shall be carried out. This was the plan, and remains the plan. Timelines remain fuzzy, but while there have been some initial delays, I don't particularly expect the timeline for project as a whole to change a whole lot.

Also, for anyone at Wikimania right now: I am also at Wikimania. Come talk to me in person!

Thank you all for your interest and support thus far!

Consultation on interface administrator group[edit]

If you can, can you please reply to my email in wikitech-ambassadors in any sort of meaningful way? I also would like to mention post factum that some people interpret the list of ‘affected user groups’ on Phabricator as a sign that it requires all groups to have the same relation in terms of transition period, when one group was elected with knowledge of JS/CSS in mind and the other was not, and I urgently need a comment from you as an organiser on these. stjn[ru] 13:02, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

Hey @Saint Johann:, I've seen your mail but wanted to look at the ruwiki discission before replying. I'm traveling home from Wikimania so might not happen today. Can you clarify what "have the same relation in terms of transition period" means? --Tgr (talk) 13:50, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

  • Alright, just wanted to clarify that you’ve seen it at all. What I tried to convey is that people read the list of affected groups and try to extrapolate from it that, in your opinion / opinion of developers, no one has a ‘trust as high as admins’ anymore (most disagreement comes from this particular wording being interpreted as it fits someone), and everyone, even the people that edited JS/CSS before the most, must go under a vote because, basically, it’s ‘what developers telling us’. stjn[ru] 15:45, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

Interface admins group[edit]

Dear Tgr, I have a question regarding the new permissions group of interface admins. In order to become an interface admin, does someone also have to be an administrator first? I do not like to block people, I am a developer and I am highly interested in creating gadgets. After several hundrends of hours of training, coaching and mentoring people to contribute in Wikipedia, I am creating tools out of my experience that help people contribute easily, like this one, and I am now preparing the next step beyond template code. Do I have to be an administrator to become an interface admin and develop and deploy gadgets? Best regards,   ManosHacker talk 20:18, 10 August 2018 (UTC)

@ManosHacker: that's up to the editors of your wiki to decide. There is no technical need for it; both require a high level of trust but a slightly different kind. (See also the email thread mentioned in the previous section.) --Tgr (talk) 17:49, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

Commons deletion notification bot[edit]

Greetings,

You are receiving this message because you supported the Commons deletion notification bot in the 2017 Community Wishlist Survey.

Commons deletion notification bot is ready to be deployed to any Wikimedia wiki that wishes to use it. If your community is interested in the bot, you can leave a request on the project page on meta-wiki. The bot messages are available for translation on translatewiki.net, as part of preparing the bot for release.

Thank you for your participation in the Wishlist. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 17:29, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

SVG Translate Community wishlist survey project[edit]

Hello! Thank you for voting for the SVG Translate project that was proposed in the 2017 Wishlist survey. The Community Tech team in the Wikimedia Foundation is beginning to start their work on the project. We're currently looking for feedback on some open questions which will allow us to come up with preliminary designs for the tool. If you are interested in being involved, you can watch the project page and join in the discussions on the talk page. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and learning from your experiences. Thank you. -- NKohli (WMF), Product Manager, Community Tech (talk) 21:53, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Interface-admin migration term[edit]

Dear Gergo!

Could you please hint me where I can find the exact date, when Interface-admin rights will be removed from admins and engineers/template editors, particularly in Russian Wikipedia. I'm an arbitrator, who analyzes a respective case in Russian Wikipedia, so it would be handy to know the exact time, to know how much time we have to elaborate a preliminary ruling. Thank you! Dr Bug (Vladimir V. Medeyko) 09:04, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

@Drbug: Today between 11:00 and 12:00 UTC (30–90 minutes from now). —Tacsipacsi (talk) 10:32, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

@Drbug: sorry, I didn't see this before. They have just been removed (the time was mentioned in Creation of separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JS). --Tgr (talk) 11:20, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Thank you, colleagues! We thought so, but then there were some rumors that the deployment might be postponed, so that's why I asked. Dr Bug (Vladimir V. Medeyko) 09:02, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
