Just a Simple Question[edit]

I wonder why Visual Editor does not supports some languages, even French Wikipedia doesn't supports (I accidentally saw after going link to your User Page). Is it Visual Editor's Technical Problem? Or Local Wikipedia Problem? --Alex00728 (talk) 10:51, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Hey Alex00728
VisualEditor has some problems with some writing systems: composed writings like hangeul, right-to-left languages and others. These technical problems will be solved in the coming months (not scheduled at the moment).
Otherwise, VisualEditor is deployed on quite all latin languages. French Wikipedia uses it, and there you have the choice between wikitext editor (button "modifier le code") and VE (button "modifier") by default. Some other latin-based language Wikipedias don't have VE yet, per communities decisions.
Trizek (WMF) (talk) 12:59, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
Oh.. Is Visual Editor not in beta for some latin languages? I found Visual Editor beta on English Wikipedia, and I thought there isn't any not in beta Visual Editors. Thank you for your accurate answer. --Alex00728 (talk) 10:25, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
VE is a beta feature on English, Dutch, German and Spanish. All other Latin languages have VE activated by default. Trizek (WMF) (talk) 12:06, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

Outreach program[edit]

Hello, I just found out about the Outreach program, and I was wondering what are the priorities of the translation program, I took look at the mini-tasks and I definitely can do them but as someone who isn't programmer what would the best direction I should focus on for internship project? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by KenzaLkheir (talk)

Hello
Did you had a look to the Outreach program task on Phabricator?

Some problem about Flow[edit]

Hello ! I'm user from zh wikipedia. I try to post something but it's show "Error: One or more dependencies failed to load".Sometime, it may work ( that mean not error ) , but most of the time it show that , and I can't post message.9shi (talk) 23:53, 9 October 2015 (UTC)

Bug report[edit]

Hi, Trizek. I'm from Japanese Wikipedia, ja:user:にょきにょき. I reported an IME bug on VE (ja:Wikipedia:ビジュアルエディター/フィードバック/IME). Could you please confirm it? Regards, --Nyoki2 (talk) 15:57, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi Nyoki2!
I was on vacation last week. This bug has been reported here. Thank you for pointing this out!

Amélioration technique de Wikiquote[edit]

Bonsoir,

J'avais contribué à Wikiquote mais ai vite abandonné. Ce qui m'a tout de suite posé problème et m'a conduit, je pense, à m'en éloigner assez vite, c'est la structure de Wikiquote organisée par pages regroupant des citations. Cela conduit à devoir copier chaque citation dans au moins deux pages, la page de l'auteur et la page du sujet. Ce principe de doublon n'est pas du tout satisfaisant.

Une solution, je pense, serait d'avoir une page par citation. Et chaque citation serait marquée (catégorisée ?) d'une part de leur auteur et d'autre part (séparément) de leur sujet. Pour la consultation, les pages sur un sujet donné ou sur un auteur donné pourraient être regroupées sous une forme à déterminer, par exemple :

  • une liste des sujets de citation pour un auteur donné ou une liste des auteurs de citation pour un sujet donné ;
  • une page de consultation regroupant les différentes citations sur un sujet ou une page de consultation regroupant les différentes citations d'un auteur donné, un peu comme le bistro de la Wikipédia francophone qui est le regroupement de plusieurs pages journalières.

Wikiquote n'est pas un projet très vivant mais une amélioration de sa structure pourrait peut-être permettre de le péréniser.

O.Taris (discuter) 22:02, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

Bonjour O.Taris
Je connais vraiment très peu Wikiquote.
Cependant, il serait possible d'améliorer le système que tu décris assez facilement, en créant effectivement une page par citation et en les transcluant là où cela est nécessaire (comme fait sur le bistro de fr.wp). Cette amélioration est du ressort de la communauté, qui peut éventuellement faire appel à la Fondation (au travers des subventions/Grants) pour avoir un peu de soutien technique (via un bot, par exemple).
Dans tous les cas, il y a une partie importante qui repose sur les épaules de la communauté. Celle-ci doit être proactive et initier le changement. La communauté de Wikisource a ainsi établi des besoins, qui ont été pris en compte lors du sondage sur les besoins techniques communautaires.
Cordialement, Trizek (WMF) (talk) 22:23, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
J'en avais parlé au salon de Wikiquote mais ça semble avoir été sans suite, soit parce que c'est une mauvaise idée, soit parce que Wikiquote manque de contributeurs. Mais je ne crois pas que cela puisse être fait par la seule communauté car il faudrait séparer complétement les marquages (ou catégorisation) auteur et sujet. Je t'ai fait part de cette proposition en écho à ma dernière remarque sur le bistro de la Wikipédia francophone où je regrettais que des projets complexes soient développés pour traiter des besoins qui n'en sont pas vraiment alors qu'on pourrait faire des choses simples pour traiter des problèmes qui me paraissent réels. O.Taris (discuter) 22:46, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
Ah, l'implication :/
J'ai galéré (et galère encore) en tant que bénévole pour avoir des avis sur des choses importantes et structurelles sur Wikipédia, alors j'imagine bien que sur un wiki à faible trafic, c'est pire encore. Et professionellement parlant, c'est tout aussi difficile.
Une manière de faire serait de poser la question directement aux contributeurs actifs, en laissant un message sur leur page de discussion, pointant vers une proposition concrète de structuration. Cela prend du temps, mais c'est le plus efficace.
J'ai répondu sur le bistro (sans doute l'as-tu vu). J'espère que cette réponse te sera utile, je serai ravi de détailler si tu le souhaites.

Flow[edit]

Bonjour, je n'ai vu que des Wikipedias demander Flow, un Wikivoyage ou un Wikibooks peut-il églement le demander ?
Merci d'avance Archi38 (talk) 20:24, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

PS: Et félicitation pour ces notifications interwikis, ça va être beaucoup plus pratique !

Bonjour Archi38
Le Wiktionaire en français teste Flow, Wikidata et MediaWiki l'ont de disponible dans les préférences Beta. Il est donc possible pou rune communauté qui en fait la demande (suite à décision collégiale) de tester Flow sur leur wiki.
Pour les notifications interwiki, nous comptons beaucoup sur vos retours dès jeudi pour améliorer cette nouveauté ! Trizek (WMF) (talk) 10:08, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

Nouveaux logos[edit]

New Wiktionary proposal logo

Bonjour,

J'ai amélioré et "flatisé" les logos de la Wikimedia notemment ceux de Wikinews et Wiktionary qui en avaient bien besoin ! Où doit-on proposer mes nouveaux logos étant donné que cela impactera les wikis dans toutes les langues ?

Et voici la liste complète de mes logos ici

Merci d'avance, Archi38

Bonjour Archi38
Ce type de changement est à proposer sur Meta, sur la page Requests for comment.
Par contre, je doute que cela soit facilement accepté.

Place to post news on the Wikipedia in Russian[edit]

Dear colleague! You asked to move your message to most suitable place and inform you. The forum of the Wikipedia in Russian has a special section to post news: ru:Википедия:Форум/Новости (I moved your message to that section). Gamliel Fishkin 12:08, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

Thanks a lot, Gamliel Fishkin. Really appreciated! Trizek (WMF) (talk) 13:54, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

Pl-Wiki Flow notification[edit]

Dear Trizek,
Thank you for letting us know about Flow beta feature. For your information, you had asked Tar in his discussion page about the discussion about introducing Flow. In this discussion the voices were split 9:9, or 8:7 (depends on count), so about fifty-fifty, very far from "consensus", at least in my humble opinion. Yours --Felis domestica (talk) 23:03, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

Hello Felis domestica
I've cheched the community consultation when Tar Lócesilion made the request. I haven't seen anything which was a blocker: some decisions on some wikis can be taken with a fifty-fifty result. I also know automated translations from Polish to English are perfectible, that's why I've asked Tar for precision.
My advice for your community would be to try Flow, but it is your decision.
Best, Trizek (WMF) (talk) 10:18, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

Traduction[edit]

Salut, je cherche à savoir s'il est possible d'utiliser l'extension Translate sur meta en partant d'une version française ? et quelle doit alors être le nom de la page source (par exemple « Page » ou « Page/fr ») ? Akeron (talk) 13:43, 30 March 2016 (UTC)

Salut Akeron
La langue de base est l'anglais, par défaut. Pour l'exemple, les pages de la wikiconférence fr ne sont pas marquées pour la traduction vu qu'elles ne sont pas en anglais de base.
Trizek (WMF) (talk) 15:32, 30 March 2016 (UTC)
Donc ce n'est pas possible d'utiliser cette extension pour faire du fr->en ? ou est-ce qu'on peut changer la langue par défaut au moment où l'admin marque la page pour la traduction ?Akeron (talk) 16:41, 30 March 2016 (UTC)
Je n'ai pas souvenir d'avoir vu une telle possibilité. Je vais me remplonger dans la doc. Trizek (WMF) (talk) 17:24, 30 March 2016 (UTC)

Sister Projects Committee[edit]

Bonjour, le comité des projets frères est censé analyser les propositions de nouveaux projets, seulement il a arrêté de faire son job depuis 2005 (dernière fois qu'ils ont approuvé/désapprouvé un projet). Pourriez-vous vous pencher sur ça à la Wikimedia foundation ? Je pense qu'il faudrait voter par une prise de décision le fait que le comité soit remplacé par des stewards. Il faudrait également rendre traduisible les pages sur le sujet.

Je propose ça car je compte bientôt proposer un projet et je souhaiterais avoir une réponse. Cordialement, Archi38 (talk) 16:34, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Bonjour Archi38
Si j'en crois Proposals_for_new_projects, la dernière proposition revue date de fin 2014. La plupart des propositions ne dépassent pas le statut de discussion et rares sont celles qui vont jusqu'à être proposées pour de bon. Quand elles le sont, elles sont closes après discussion, par les participants.
Pour ce qui est de remplacer le SPCom par les stewards, il faut lancer une RfC. C'est une décision communautaire à prendre qui ne dépend pas de la Fondation.
Rendre traduisible la page New project process nécessite qu'elle quitte son statut de brouillon. N'importe quel utilisateur ayant les droits de traduction peut alors la marquer pour traduction.
Cordialement, Trizek (WMF) (talk) 09:13, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
Ah oui autant pour moi.. Pour ce qui est de la RFC, je la fait sur RFC ou Meta:RFC ? J'aurais tendance à dire RFC vu que cela influencera tous les nouveaux projets, mais d'un autre côté les décisions ne seront prises que sur Meta.
Pour ce qui est de la page, je l'écrirais une fois la RFC close. Et merci ! Archi38 (talk) 10:49, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
Au pire, quelqu'un vous dira où faire la RFC. Trizek (WMF) (talk) 11:01, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
RFC créée ! Archi38 (talk) 18:13, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Page protection in Flow[edit]

Is it possible to fully protect only the "description" section of a Flow board? I tried the normal "protect" (&action=protect) and it protects the whole board (i.e. normal users can't post nor reply anymore). Thanks. Kenrick95 (talk) 13:17, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi Kenrick95
Unfortunately, that's not possible at the moment. Do not hesitate to request it on the related Phabricator task.
Trizek (WMF) (talk) 08:12, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

Workboard and priority[edit]

Pay attention to https://secure.phabricator.com/T8135 Nemo 08:48, 7 May 2016 (UTC)

Piped links in Flow[edit]

Hello Trizek. There seems to be a problem with piped links in Flow. When trying to use them at Wikispecies they do not work as expected, or simply not at all. Also, patrolling edits made using Flow doesn't work: whether "manually" trying to mark them as patrolled (using the diffs.) or by use of RTRC, nothing happens. I've tried setting the namespaces to "All" in RTRC, as well as "Topic", but neither works. Please see species:User talk:Archi38#Please hit the breaks for details regarding both the piped links and patrolling problems.

Marking edits as patrolled perhaps isn't a very big deal, but being able to use piped links is important, and a basic part of wiki code. Do you please have any hints, thoughts or solutions regarding this? –Best regards, Tommy Kronkvist (talk · contribs) 09:57, 16 May 2016 (UTC).

Hi Tommy Kronkvist
Sorry for that late answer, I was off these last days.
Can you give me an example of a piped link? Do you mean a link like that example: [[species:User talk:Archi38#Please hit the breaks|see Archi38's page]]? If yes, having an arrow after the link is a normal behavior: that link goes to an other website and people may want to know about it.
Also, concerning patrolling and history, we have a bunch of things that should be fixed. We will prioritize that soon (with a user survey) and I hope we wil have resources do fix things and ad new features to Flow.
Regarding RTRC, Flow is provided with an API and other technical things I don't know about (I'm not a developer :)). It is up to all other developers to use these components to create and improve their tools. The Collaboration team will bu its very best to give the relevant tools to all volunteers developers.
Feel free to contact me any time if you have additional suggestions or feedback, either here or on WikiSpecies! I'll be happy to help you.

Tech/News/2016/29[edit]

Hello. I've added some links to Phabricator. Could you mark the new version for translation? Guycn2 · 12:23, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Hello Guycn2
I've marked the page for translation so your links will be visible on translations on meta. But Tech News has now been delivered and translations will not affect delivered messages, unless if they are done page by page.
Trizek (WMF) (talk) 12:39, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
What a shame :( thank you anyway. Guycn2 · 12:47, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
Tech News is delivered on Monday, usually during morning. But we freeze the content on Fridays afternoon UTC to allow people to translate it during the weekend. If you have changes or suggestions, please add them before Friday afternoon UTC. Monday morning's edits are rare and that's a good thing. Trizek (WMF) (talk) 12:58, 18 July 2016 (UTC)
OK. Guycn2 · 13:01, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

Commons & Flow[edit]

Is there any timeline if and/or when Commons may get opt-in for Flow as a beta? I like it on Wikidata, and like to see it on Commons as well. :) Josve05a (talk) 01:16, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Hello Josve05a
Flow will not be deployed on any project, unless if a community asks for it. As written on that page, if the Commons community manages to reach a consensus to have Flow deployed as a Beta feature, then Flow will be available. That question has already been asked by community members in August 2015 and the answer was "not yet".
Hope this helps! Trizek (WMF) (talk) 09:16, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Issue with the filters[edit]

Hi Trizek. I found an issue with the new RC filters, and I thought I should let you know.

Try https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:RecentChanges?hidebots=1&hidecategorization=1&hideWikibase=1 and then in the dropdown below the filters, use "Template" as the namespace of interest, then press "Show".

When the page loads again, not only it is *not* showing Template namespace changes, but the dropdown has also been reset to "All". In other words, RC filters take away one's ability to restrict RC to a specific namespace. If you like I can also file a Phab task for it. Thanks! Huji (talk) 15:09, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

Thanks Huji, good catch. I'm reporting it right now. Trizek (WMF) (talk) 10:17, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

Extension[edit]

Bonjour,

j'ai fait une RfC qui, si elle est acceptée, demanderait une extension supplémentaire (ou une mise à jour d'une extension Wikimédia). Devrais-je m'addresser au projet Phabricator Mediawiki-extensions-requests ou y a-t-il un projet spécifique ?

Merci d'avance, CreativeC38 (talk) 19:15, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

Bonjour CreativeC38
Un premier contact avec l'équipe Language aurait permis de savoir s'il était possible d'avoir ce droit global ou non. À priori, c'est cette équipe qui aura en charge un tel développement, le délai restant à sa discrétion.

Structured Data on Commons Newsletter, July 19, 2017[edit]

Welcome to the newsletter for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons! You can update your subscription to the newsletter. Do inform others who you think will want to be involved in the project!

Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons?[edit]

The millions of files on Wikimedia Commons are described with a lot of information or (meta)data. With the project Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons, this data is structured more, and is made machine-readable. This will make it easier to view, search (also multilingually), edit, organize and re-use the files on Commons.

In early 2017, the Sloan Foundation funded this project (see documentation). Development takes place in 2017–2020. It involves staff from the Wikimedia Foundation and Wikimedia Deutschland (WMDE) and many volunteers. To achieve this, Wikibase support is added to Wikimedia Commons. Wikibase is the technology that is also used for Wikidata.

Recent developments: groundwork[edit]

  • A new and crucial technical step (federation) now makes it possible to reference data from one Wikibase website in another. Because of this, it will be possible to use Wikidata's items and properties to describe media files on Commons.
  • Another important piece of groundwork is under development: so-called Multi-Content Revisions. This feature allows structured data to be stored alongside wiki text, so that one wiki page can contain several types of content.

Team updates[edit]

  • Amanda Bittaker was hired as Program Manager for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons. Amanda will take care of the overall management of the project.
  • Sandra Fauconnier (known as Spinster in her volunteer capacity) is the new Community Liaison. She will support the collaboration between the communities (Commons, Wikidata, GLAM) and the product development teams at the Wikimedia Foundation and Wikimedia Deutschland.
  • We have open positions for a UX designer and a Product Manager!

Talking with communities and allies[edit]

  • Long-term feedback from GLAMs. Besides the Wikimedia community, many external cultural and knowledge institutions (GLAMs - Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) are interested in Structured Data on Commons and are willing to provide feedback on the long-term plans for the project. Alex Stinson, GLAM strategist at the Wikimedia Foundation, is currently in contact with Europeana, DPLA, the Smithsonian and the National Archives of the United States. Alex is also looking for other GLAM institutions who might be able to advise on the long term. If you know of an institution or partner that may be appropriate for consultation, do get in touch with Alex.
  • Jonathan Morgan, design researcher, is starting to work on two projects:

What comes next?[edit]

  • The Structured Data on Commons team meets in the week after Wikimania to lay the groundwork for the next steps. This includes new backend development and design work, for better and more clear integration of the structured data in pages on Wikimedia Commons.
  • The project's information pages on Wikimedia Commons will receive a long overdue update in the upcoming months. The team will also work on more and better communication channels. Feedback, wishes and tips are welcome at the project's general talk page.

Ressources de la WMF pour les Wiktionnaires[edit]

Salut Trizek !

Une contributrice du Wiktionnaire, Zawer, vient de poser une intéressante question à laquelle tu pourras peut-être répondre mieux que nous. Combien la Wikimedia Fondation consacre-t-elle de ressources aux Wiktionnaires ? Aussi bien en développement logiciel spécifique qu'en communication ou maintien des serveurs. Je sais qu'une équipe de Wikidata bosse sur l'intégration de données du Wiktionnaire, mais elle doit être financée par WMDE si je me souviens bien. Et du coup, au niveau de la fondation, je n'ai aucune idée de l'aide que reçoivent les projets Wiktionary. Aurais-tu cette information, ou saurais-tu où la trouver ? Merci d'avance ! Noé (talk) 09:52, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

Effectivement, la question est intéressante... Mais la réponse ne va pas être facile Je réponds là bas. Trizek (WMF) (talk) 13:12, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
Merci, et désolé si ça te prends du temps qui pourrait servir à une tâche plus utile. Tant que l'on est à parler de sous, serait-il possible de savoir si des dons reçus par la Fondation ont été spécialement fléchés pour le Wiktionnaire ? Je sais bien que pour les petits dons (qui forment la majorité des ressources), il n'est pas possible de demander à ce qu'ils ne servent qu'à une tâche précise, mais je pense à des plus gros apports. Je pense que la réponse est non, mais je ne sais pas où la trouver. Désolé encore de passer par toi comme intermédiaire pour mes questions, peut-être qu'un autre salarié de la WMF ou qu'une liste de discussion serait plus adéquate. Noé (talk) 13:25, 2 August 2017 (UTC)
Comme j'explique dans ma réponse détaillée, rien n'est fléché, sauf projets spécifiques faisant l'objet d'une donation dédiée. C'est le cas du projet contre le harcèlement qui fait l'objet d'une donation de la part du fondateur de Craiglist. Trizek (WMF) (talk) 13:59, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

Contacting the WMF Legal department[edit]

I am contacting you because you are listed as a Community Liaison.

I am putting together a proposal at User:Guy Macon/Proposals/CAPTCHA (part of a series of proposals at User:Guy Macon/Proposals).

In my opinion, the next logical step is to inform someone at the WMF legal department. My problem is that there does not appear to be any noticeboard associated with the WMF legal department and every member of the WMF legal department appears to have a user talk page that cannot be edited.

I am unwilling to use email or post to a mailing list because I want everything involved with my proposals to be open and accessible through the history of the page where the discussion occurred. Can you suggest a way that I can contact legal regarding this matter? -Guy Macon (talk) 17:38, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

Hello Guy Macon, and thank you for you message. I've noticed that you have contacted Jacob Rogers from Legal so I guess you don't need my assistance anymore. Best, Trizek (WMF) (talk) 09:19, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

reply[edit]

Hello,

This has a reference to your post on my UrWiki talk page and also our Wikimania discussion.

To the best of my knowledge, no sysop or bureaucrat is fully aware as to where to look for system messages/templates for modification. They seem to be available in four different directions:

a) on the Wiki itself
b) on Media Wiki
c) on Meta
d) on Translatewiki

I suggested a listing page, i.e. admins should know where to look for in addressing issues on hand easily.

  1. I also suggest designing a training video for effective use of admin rights. I gave the suggestion that initially this video could be in English which could be later translated into other languages.
  2. I also suggested online sessions for admins of different Wikis. This I feel could be carried on Skype/ Google hangout and groups of admins and bureaucrats could participate in the sessions with the aim of getting deep insights and at the same time clarifying many technical doubts about available tools, templates, system messages and also other aspects such as using Phabricator.--Muzammil (talk) 16:52, 20 August 2017 (UTC)
Hello Muzammil!
Searching for templates or system messages have a known location. You don't need to find them on other wikis.
Templates are only local. There is no cross-wiki templates (a template hosted on a given wiki, but working elsewhere) for now.
System messages are global, all hosted on TranslateWiki, except if they have been overwritten on the local wiki. There is a way to find system messages you need: when you are on the interface, append uselang=qqx at the end of the URL (prefixed by ?, or & is there is already a ?). For instance, see my talk page with only interface messages codes.
When you display this interface with only system messages, you can pick the one you want to check. Let's say we want to check (visualeditor-ca-editsource), which displays Edit source:
  1. copy the message name, without the brackets: visualeditor-ca-editsource
    • to copy it, you may have to use the inspector in your browser (right click > inspect), to copy it. I often recopy it by hand, because it goes faster
  2. check if the message is local by searching it. It is a MediaWiki message, so add the prefix: Mediawiki:visualeditor-ca-editsource
    1. If the page exists locally, you need to edit it locally to have local changes
    2. If the page doesn't exists, you have to go to translatewiki to work on it.
I hope I'm clear enough. If not, please ask me for more details!
Training videos for admins is a pretty good idea. I'm going to ask if there is already some existing.
Online sessions pretty much exist, as instant help on IRC. Anyone can join #mediawikiconnect and have some advice about the tools. You can join anytime. I'll share your idea of having video sessions.
I'll keep you posted, but it may take a bit of time to have the answers. Do not hesitate to ping me to know if I have updates!
Thanks, Trizek (WMF) (talk) 15:10, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

Please be more careful in updating the distribution list[edit]

Notice how in this edit of yours you changed the English Wiktionary's target from the correct one to the incorrect one? Please be more careful. It is rather annoying to have to move it to the right place and then come back here and fix it so frequently. Please check any other similar lists you have carelessly updated and fix them. --Wikitiki89 (talk) 15:46, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Sorry for this issue, Wikitiki89. I've updated the list automatically to change the format used, to query it more easily. Thank you for fixing it. Trizek (WMF) (talk) 15:55, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Two new people have been hired for the Structured Data on Commons team. We are now complete! :-)

  • Ramsey Isler is the new Product Manager of the Multimedia team.
  • Pamela Drouin was hired as User Interface Designer. She works at the Multimedia team as well, and her work will focus on the Structured Commons project.
Partners and allies
  • We are still welcoming (more) staff from GLAMs (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) to become part of our long-term focus group (phabricator task T174134). You will be kept in the loop of the project, and receive regular small surveys and requests for feedback. Get in touch with Sandra if you're interested - your input in helping to shape this project is highly valued!
Research

Design research is ongoing.

  • Jonathan Morgan and Niharika Ved have held interviews with various GLAM staff about their batch upload workflows and will finish and report on these in this quarter. (phabricator task T159495)
  • At this moment, there is also an online survey for GLAM staff, Wikimedians in Residence, and GLAM volunteers who upload media collections to Wikimedia Commons. The results will be used to understand how we can improve this experience. (phabricator task T175188)
  • Upcoming: interviews with Wikimedia volunteers who curate media on Commons (including tool developers), talking about activities and workflows. (phabricator task T175185)
Development

In Autumn 2017, the Structured Commons development team works on the following major tasks (see also the quarterly goals for the team):

  • Getting Multi-Content Revisions sufficiently ready, so that the Multimedia and Search Platform teams can start using it to test and prototype things.
  • Determine metrics and metrics baseline for Commons (phabricator task T174519).
  • The multimedia team at WMF is gaining expertise in Wikibase, and unblocking further development for Structured Commons, by completing the MediaInfo extension for Wikibase.
Stay up to date!

Warmly, your community liaison, SandraF (WMF) (talk)

Filter not saved[edit]

Hello

I edit the Hungarian Wikipedia and I encountered the following problem: I created a filter for "Special:RecentChanges", but the filter does not remain active (although it is saved and it shows its given name!), I have to select again the filtering on that page. How can I help you with more info to fix it? I hope you can help.

Anyway the "RecentChanges" was much longer, but now it shows only "the last 500 changes" at most. Previously it showed about the last 10.000 changes if I remember well. Can I ask this feat back, please? --Misibacsi (talk) 15:05, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

Hello Misibacsi
Let's try to understand what is not working. Can you share the link for that filter and telle me what you want it to do?
RecentChanges have always been limited to all edits during the last 30 days if there is less than 500 new changes. If there is more than 500 changes, you only see the last 500 edits (which can have been done today only).
Best, Trizek (WMF) (talk) 15:38, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

Hello

It is on this page: https://hu.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?hidebots=1&hideminor=1&hideWikibase=1&limit=50&days=30&enhanced=1&title=Speci%C3%A1lis:Friss_v%C3%A1ltoztat%C3%A1sok&urlversion=2

It seems I cannot actually copy the filter here.

I gave it a name: "500 változtatás" (= "500 changes"). It is inside "Mentett szűrők" (="Saved filters"). I guess it is visible for me personally. Can you see it? --Misibacsi (talk) 20:44, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

Thanks Misibacsi.
I see the following filters active: "Human (not bot)", "Non-minor edits", "Page edits", "Page creations", "Category changes" and "Logged actions". Are they the filters you want to have saved? IF not, which filters are missing?
No. They seem to be saved, these filters do not disappear. Misibacsi (talk) 16:00, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
Do they disapear when you click on the trash icon? Trizek (WMF) (talk) 16:34, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
I've manage to save that group of filters.
When I display last 500 edits and I want to save it, it is not possible. Is it your problem?
Yes, I wish to save it ("last 500 edits") as default filter. Misibacsi (talk) 16:00, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
It is not possible yet, but I've reported that relevant request to have it fixed :) Trizek (WMF) (talk) 16:34, 14 November 2017 (UTC)
I can't have access to your saved filters.
