Punti salienti di Wikimedia Foundation

Durata della modifica-a-thons: 91% durato meno di 8 ore

Nuovo materiale di supporto per organizzatori di programmi: Report di valutazione sul edit-a-thons, e Pattern Library

Il nuovo report sull'edit-a-thons' include dati da 46 eventi tenuti tra febbraio 2012 e ottobre 2013. Questo dà il via a una serie di sette report sui tipi più comuni di programmi eseguiti dai leader del programma Wikimedia in tutto il mondo, supportati dal Programma di Valutazione della Wikimedia Foundation e il Design Team. Questa è la prima volta che una tale analisi compara i risultati di un specifico programma ai suoi costi. Tra le varie scoperte di questo report, un edit-a-thons con un piccolo budget può essere tanto produttivo quanto eventi con un grosso budget.

Nel nuovo ' imparare libreria di pattern' su Meta, un Wikimediano può condividere ciò che conosce sull'organizzazione di attività come edit-a-thons, collaborazioni GLAM, divario di genere sensibilizzazione, o Wiki Loves Monuments. Ogni modello include una descrizione di un problema comune, e le istruzioni per risolverlo.

Summit sui linguaggi Open Source a Pune, India

Together with Red Hat, the Wikimedia Foundation's language engineering team organized the fall 2013 Open Source Language Summit in Pune, India. It was also attended by members of the VisualEditor and Mobile teams. Session topics included:

  • improving the support for fonts (in particular in Indic languages)
  • input methods for entering characters that are not available on a user's keyboard
  • the Language Coverage Matrix Dashboard, which displays how a language is supported on Wikimedia projects
  • a prototype for a user interface for translating Wikipedia articles and other content

L'estensione OAuth semplifica l'uso di strumenti di modifica di terze parti

All Wikimedia wikis now support OAuth, an open standard that allows users to authorize third-party software tools to carry out actions on the wiki on their behalf, without handing over their user password. Among the first tools that use this new feature is "CropTool", which allows users to crop images on Wikimedia Commons.

La scansione di una pagina di Viswakosh

Università indiana rilascia enciclopedia sotto licenza gratuita

La "Konkani Vishwakosh" è un'enciclopedia in 4 volumi scritta in Konkani, una lingua parlata principalmente dalla popolazione che vive nel Goa e negli stati confinanti della costa occidentale dell'India.

At the suggestion of Access to Knowledge (A2K, a program supporting Wikipedia in India, run at the Centre for Internet & Society and funded by a grant from the Wikimedia Foundation), the publisher of the "Konkani Vishwakosh", Goa University, released it under a Creative Commons License (CC-BY-SA 3.0). This is part of a three-year effort to build the Konkani Wikipedia. The 3632 pages of the Vishwakosh are being digitized by 37 volunteer Wikimedians.

Conferenza sulle diversità

On November 9–10, over 80 Wikimedians attended the first Wikimedia Diversity Conference, hosted by the German Wikimedia chapter in Berlin. Many of the presentations addressed Wikipedia's gender gap (the fact that the large majority of contributors are male). But other aspects of diversity were a topic as well, e.g. geographic diversity (the under-representation of editors from the Global South) or LGBT issues.
