It requires many teams to prepare for the test and to be available to fix any unexpected problems. They will switch all traffic to the new data center on Tuesday, 19 April.

On Thursday, 21 April , they will switch back to the primary data center. Unfortunately, because of some limitations in MediaWiki , all editing must stop during those two switches. We apologize for this disruption, and we are working to minimize it in the future. If you try to edit or save during these times, you will see an error message. If you see the error message, then please wait until everything is back to normal. Then you should be able to save your edit. But, we recommend that you make a copy of your changes first, just in case. Red links might not be updated as quickly as normal.

If you create an article that is already linked somewhere else, the link will stay red longer than usual. Some long-running scripts will have to be stopped. This test was originally planned to take place on March April 19th and 21st are the new dates. They will post any changes on that schedule. There will be more notifications about this. Please share this information with your community. Hello, I wanted to give a heads up about an upcoming feature for this wiki which you may seen already in the Tech News. Compact Language Links has been available as a beta-feature on all Wikimedia wikis since With compact language links enabled, users are shown a much shorter list of languages on the interlanguage link section of an article see image.

This will be enabled as a feature in the soon for all users, which can be turned on or off using a preference setting. We look forward to your feedback and please do let us know if you have any questions. Details about Compact Language Links can be read in the project documentation. Due to the large scale enablement of this feature, we have had to use MassMessage for this announcement and as a result it is only written in English. We will really appreciate if this message can be translated for other users of this wiki.

The main announcement can also be translated on this page. Based on several factors, this shorter list of languages is expected to be more relevant for them and valuable for finding similar content in a language known to them. More information about compact language links can be found in the documentation. From today onwards, compact language links has been enabled as the default listing of interlanguage links on this wiki. However, using the button at the bottom, you will be able to see a longer list of all the languages the article has been written in.

The compact language links feature has been tested extensively by the Wikimedia Language team, which developed it. However, in case there are any problems or other feedback please let us know on the project talk page. It is to be noted that on some wikis the presence of an existing older gadget that was used for a similar purpose may cause an interference for compact language list. We would like to bring this to the attention of the admins of this wiki.

Full details are on this phabricator ticket in English. The names will be consistent in all editing environments. This change will probably happen during the week of 30 August The change will be announced in Tech News when it happens. If you are fluent in a language other than English, please check the status of translations at translatewiki. The main reason for this change is to avoid confusion for new editors. It is important for this part of the user interface to be clear, since it is difficult to remove public information after it is published. Clarifying what the button does will reduce this problem.

Beyond that, the goal is to make all the wikis and languages more consistent, and some wikis made this change many years ago. The Legal team at the Wikimedia Foundation supports this change. Making the edit interface easier to understand will make it easier to handle licensing and privacy questions that may arise. Any help pages or other basic documentation about how to edit pages will also need to be updated, on-wiki and elsewhere. Please share this news with community members who teach new editors and with others who may be interested. Sorry for writing this message in English, please feel free to translate it in your own language below.

The Wikidata development team will start working on integrating lexicographical data in the knowledge base soon and we want to make sure we do this together with you. Wikidata is a constantly evolving project and after four years of existence, we start with implementing support for Wiktionary editors and content, by allowing you to store and improve lexicographical data, in addition to the concepts already maintained by thousands of editors on Wikidata.

We have been working on this idea for almost three years and improving it with a lot of inputs from community members to understand Wiktionary processes. Starting this project, we hope that the editors will be able to collaborate across Wiktionaries more easily. We expect to increase the number of editors and visibility of languages, and we want to provide the groundwork for new tools for editors. Our development plan contains several phases in order to build the structure to include lexicographical data:.

During the next months, we will do our best to provide you the technical structure to store lexicographical data on Wikidata and use it on Wiktionary. Information about supporting lexicographical entities on Wikidata is available on this page. You can find an overview of the project , the detail of the development plan , answers to frequently asked questions , and a list of people ready to help us.

The Project Grants program is currently accepting proposals for funding. There is just over a week left to submit before the October 11 deadline. If you have ideas for software, offline outreach, research, online community organizing, or other projects that enhance the work of Wikimedia volunteers, start your proposal today! The consultation will run from October 5 to November 8, and we hope to receive a wide range of viewpoints and opinions.

Please, if you are interested, take part in the discussion on Meta-Wiki. Apologies that this message is only in English. This message can be read and translated in more languages here. I apologise that this message is in English. We are having a problem with attackers taking over wiki accounts with privileged user rights for example, admins, bureaucrats, oversighters, checkusers. It appears that this may be because of weak or reused passwords.

Community members are working along with members of multiple teams at the Wikimedia Foundation to address this issue. In the meantime, we ask that everyone takes a look at the passwords they have chosen for their wiki accounts. If you know that you've chosen a weak password, or if you've chosen a password that you are using somewhere else, please change those passwords.

Select strong passwords — eight or more characters long, and containing letters, numbers, and punctuation. Please accept my apologies - that first line should read " Help with translations! Summary : There's a new opt-in Beta Feature of a wikitext mode for the visual editor. Please go try it out. We in the Wikimedia Foundation's Editing department are responsible for making editing better for all our editors, new and experienced alike.

We've been slowly improving the visual editor based on feedback, user tests, and feature requests. However, that doesn't work for all our user needs: whether you need to edit a wikitext talk page, create a template, or fix some broken reference syntax, sometimes you need to use wikitext, and many experienced editors prefer it.

Consequently, we've planned a "wikitext mode" for the visual editor for a long time. It provides as much of the visual editor's features as possible, for those times that you need or want wikitext. It has the same user interface as the visual editor, including the same toolbar across the top with the same buttons. It provides access to the citoid service for formatting citations, integrated search options for inserting images, and the ability to add new templates in a simple dialog. Like in the visual editor, if you paste in formatted text copied from another page, then formatting such as bolding will automatically be converted into wikitext.

All wikis now have access to this mode as a Beta Feature. When enabled, it replaces your existing wikitext editor everywhere. If you don't like it, you can reverse this at any time by turning off the Beta Feature in your preferences. We don't want to surprise anyone, so it's strictly an opt-in-only Beta Feature.

It won't switch on automatically for anyone, even if you have previously checked the box to "Automatically enable all new beta features". The new wikitext edit mode is based on the visual editor, so it requires JavaScript as does the current wikitext editor. It doesn't work with gadgets that have only been designed for the older one and vice versa , so some users will miss gadgets they find important. We're happy to work with gadget authors to help them update their code to work with both editors.

We're not planning to get rid of the current main wikitext editor on desktop in the foreseeable future. We're also not going to remove the existing ability to edit plain wikitext without JavaScript.

Matumizi ya faili

Finally, though it should go without saying, if you prefer to continue using the current wikitext editor, then you may so do. This is an early version, and we'd love to know what you think so we can make it better. Please leave feedback about the new mode on the feedback page. You may write comments in any language. Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English. Message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki. The Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout For 15 years, Wikimedians have worked together to build the largest free knowledge resource in human history.

During this time, we've grown from a small group of editors to a diverse network of editors, developers, affiliates, readers, donors, and partners. Today, we are more than a group of websites. We are a movement rooted in values and a powerful vision: all knowledge for all people. As a movement, we have an opportunity to decide where we go from here. This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve.

We hope to design an inclusive process that makes space for everyone: editors, community leaders, affiliates, developers, readers, donors, technology platforms, institutional partners, and people we have yet to reach. There will be multiple ways to participate including on-wiki, in private spaces, and in-person meetings. You are warmly invited to join and make your voice heard.

The immediate goal is to have a strategic direction by Wikimania to help frame a discussion on how we work together toward that strategic direction. Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list , and posted on Meta-Wiki. Beginning with this message, monthly reviews of these updates will be sent to this page as well. Sign up to receive future announcements and monthly highlights of strategy updates on your user talk page. More information about the movement strategy is available on the Meta-Wiki Wikimedia movement strategy portal. This message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

As we mentioned last month, the Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout Each month, we are sending overviews of these updates to this page as well. Today we are starting a broad discussion to define Wikimedia's future role in the world and develop a collaborative strategy to fulfill that role.

You are warmly invited to join the conversation. Track A organized groups : Discussions with your affiliate, committee or other organized group these are groups that support the Wikimedia movement. Track B individual contributors : On Meta or your local language or project wiki. This is the first of three conversations, and it will run between now and April The purpose of cycle 1 is to discuss the future of the movement and generate major themes around potential directions.

What do we want to build or achieve together over the next 15 years? We welcome you, as we create this conversation together, and look forward to broad and diverse participation from all parts of our movement. Please accept our apologies for cross-posting this message. On behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee, I am pleased to announce that self-nominations are being accepted for the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees Elections. The Board of Trustees Board is the decision-making body that is ultimately responsible for the long-term sustainability of the Wikimedia Foundation, so we value wide input into its selection.

More information about this role can be found on Meta-Wiki. Please read the letter from the Board of Trustees calling for candidates. We will also be accepting questions to ask the candidates from April 7 to April You can submit your questions on Meta-Wiki. Once the questions submission period has ended on April 20, the Elections Committee will then collate the questions for the candidates to respond to beginning on April The goal of this process is to fill the three community-selected seats on the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees.

The election results will be used by the Board itself to select its new members. The full schedule for the Board elections is as follows. All dates are inclusive , that is, from the beginning of the first day UTC to the end of the last. In addition to the Board elections, we will also soon be holding elections for the following roles:. Candidates who are not elected to the Board are explicitly permitted and encouraged to submit themselves as candidates to the FDC or Ombuds positions after the results of the Board elections are announced.

More information on this year's elections can be found on Meta-Wiki. Any questions related to the election can be posted on the election talk page on Meta-Wiki , or sent to the election committee's mailing list, board-elections wikimedia. The Wikimedia Foundation will be testing its secondary data center in Dallas. This will make sure that Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia wikis can stay online even after a disaster.

They will switch all traffic to the secondary data center on Wednesday, 19 April On Wednesday, 3 May , they will switch back to the primary data center. This project may be postponed if necessary. You can read the schedule at wikitech. Any changes will be announced in the schedule.

From April 24th , a new interlanguage link system will be deployed on all Wiktionaries. This extension, Cognate , automatically links the pages with the same title between the Wiktionaries. This means they no longer have to be added in the pages of the main namespace. This new feature has been developed by Wikimedia Deutschland as the first step of the project Wikidata for Wiktionary , but does not rely on Wikidata.

To allow the feature to operate, all the former interlanguage links have to be removed from the wikitext. You can do this by using a bot, as it was done on Wikipedia in the past. If you leave them in they will overwrite the automatic links. During the development we had a lot of discussions with Wiktionary editors to understand their needs, but it's possible that some automatic links don't work as you would expect. If you find some bugs or have suggestions for improvements, feel free to add a sub-task on Phabricator or add a message on this talk page.

More information on the candidates and the elections can be found on the Board of Trustees election page on Meta-Wiki. The Wikimedia movement strategy core team and working groups have completed reviewing the more than thematic statements we received from the first discussion. They have identified 5 themes that were consistent across all the conversations - each with their own set of sub-themes.


These are not the final themes, just an initial working draft of the core concepts. You are invited to join the online and offline discussions taking place on these 5 themes. This round of discussions will take place between now and June 12th. You can discuss as many as you like; we ask you to participate in the ones that are most or least important to you. Here are the five themes, each has a page on Meta-Wiki with more information about the theme and how to participate in that theme's discussion:.

On the movement strategy portal on Meta-Wiki , you can find more information about each of these themes, their discussions, and how to participate. On behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee, we are pleased to announce that self-nominations are being accepted for the Wikimedia Foundation Funds Dissemination Committee and Funds Dissemination Committee Ombudsperson elections.

Please read the letter from the Wikimedia Foundation calling for candidates at on the Wikimedia Foundation elections portal. Funds Dissemination Committee Ombudsperson The Funds Dissemination Committee Ombudsperson receives complaints and feedback about the FDC process, investigates complaints at the request of the Board of Trustees, and summarizes the investigations and feedback for the Board of Trustees on an annual basis. The candidacy submission phase will last until May 28 UTC. We will also be accepting questions to ask the candidates until May Once the questions submission period has ended on May 28, the Elections Committee will then collate the questions for the candidates to respond to.

The goal of this process is to fill the five community-selected seats on the Wikimedia Foundation Funds Dissemination Committee and the community-selected ombudsperson. The election results will be used by the Board itself to make the appointments. The full schedule for the FDC elections is as follows. More information on this year's elections can be found at the Wikimedia Foundation elections portal.

Any questions related to the election can be posted on the talk page on Meta-Wiki , or sent to the election committee's mailing list, board-elections wikimedia. Please help us translating the full message here! Short version: From June 20th, we are going to store the interwiki links of all the namespaces except main, user and talk in Wikidata. This will not break your Wiktionary, but if you want to use all the features, you will have to remove your sitelinks from wikitext and connect your pages to Wikidata.

Long version available and translatable here. Short version: Since yesterday, we are able to store the interwiki links of all the Wiktionaries namespaces except main, citations, user and talk in Wikidata. Important: even if it is technically possible, you should not link Wiktionary main namespace pages from Wikidata. The interwiki links for them are already provided by Cognate. Based on the positive results of a series of quantitative and qualitative tests , the Reading web team at the Wikimedia Foundation would like to enable the Page Previews feature for this project.

Page Previews provide a preview of any linked article, giving readers a quick understanding of a related article without leaving the current page. However, we realize the needs of the Wiktionary community will not be satisfied by the current implementation of the feature. We are interested in developing separate previews for Wiktionary that will display the wiktionary definition of an item, as well as an image, if available.

We'd like to invite some discussion around interest in this feature, as well as the requirements and elements that would make it useful for the Wiktionary community. You can see and use the old and new versions now. Most editors will only notice that some buttons are slightly larger and have different colors. However, this change also affects some user scripts and gadgets. Unfortunately, some of them may not work well in the new system. Outdated scripts can be tested and fixed now. At the request of Wikipedia editors, a new feature has been added to MediaWiki. Long lists of references also called citations or footnotes will automatically be displayed in columns.

This will make it easier for most people to read the references, especially on narrow screens. Short lists of references will not be affected. I plan to enable this new feature at this wiki on Monday, 11 September The Readers web team will be deploying a new feature this week to make it easier to download PDF versions of articles on the mobile website. Providing better offline functionality was one of the highlighted areas from the research done by the New Readers team in Mexico, Nigeria, and India. The teams created a prototype for mobile PDFs which was evaluated by user research and community feedback.

The prototype evaluation received positive feedback and results, so development continued. For the initial deployment, the feature will be available to Google Chrome browsers on Android. Support for other mobile browsers to come in the future. For Chrome, the feature will use the native Android print functionality. Users can choose to download a webpage as a PDF. Mobile print styles will be used for these PDFs to ensure optimal readability for smaller screens. The feature is available starting Wednesday, Nov For more information, see the project page on MediaWiki.

Is there a special way or tag how to note different spellings of one word? I know this is a very important thing in Kiswahili, as it is so diverse. Kwa Mfano, I want to add "ambukizo" to the Word "ambukizi". It would also be good to have a consensus of how to denote if a word has a regional spread only. One year ago, the Wikidata team started deploying new automatic interwiki links for Wiktionaries. Today, the links for the main namespace are automatically displayed by a Mediawiki extension, and the links for other namespaces are stored in Wikidata.

You can find the documentation here feel free to help translating it in your language. We would like to know if you encountered problems with the system, if you would have suggestions for further improvements. This could be for example:. Our preferred languages are English, French and German, but you can also let a message in your own language if you feel more comfortable with it.

After several years discussing about it, and one year of development and discussion with the communities, the development team of Wikimedia Germany has now released the first version of lexicographical data support on Wikidata. Since the start of Wikidata in , the multilingual knowledge base was mainly focused on concepts: Q-items are related to a thing or an idea, not to the word describing it.

Starting now, Wikidata stores a new type of data: words, phrases and sentences, in many languages, described in many languages. This information will be stored in new types of entities, called Lexemes, Forms and Senses. The goal of lexicographical data on Wikidata is to provide a structured and machine-readable way to describe words and phrases in multiple languages, stored in a same place, reusable under CC In the near future, this data will be available for Wiktionaries and other projects to reuse, as much as you want to. Participating to this project is the opportunity for you to have a voice in it, to make sure that your needs and requests are taken in account very early in the process, and to start populating Wikidata with words in your language!

Global preferences are now available, you can set them by visiting your new global preferences page.

Visit mediawiki. These are pages like MediaWiki:Common. A new user group, interface-admin , has been created. You can learn more about the motivation behind the change here. This is a dangerous permission; a malicious user or a hacker taking over the account of a careless interface-admin can abuse it in far worse ways than admin permissions could be abused. Please only assign it to users who need it, who are trusted by the community, and who follow common basic password and computer security practices use strong passwords, do not reuse passwords, use two-factor authentication if possible, do not install software of questionable origin on your machine, use antivirus software if that's a standard thing in your environment.

Tgr talk , 30 Julai UTC via global message delivery. A few months ago, we asked you for feedback about Cognate , the system allowing interwikilinks between Wiktionaries on main namespace. Several community members gave some suggestions, one of them was to provide statistics about these interwikilinks. The Wikidata team is pleased to present you the Wiktionary Cognate Dashboard , a website presenting a lot of interesting information about how Wiktionaries are connected to each others. You can find there, for example:.

To learn more about the tool, you can have a look at the documentation please help us translating it in your language! The interface of the tool itself can also be translated in other languages by using this page. If you find a bug, please let a comment on this Phabricator task or ping me onwiki. This is done to improve the security of readers and editors of Wikimedia projects. If you encounter any unexpected problems, please contact me or file a bug. Tgr talk , 27 Agosti UTC via global message delivery.

The Wikimedia Foundation will be testing its secondary data centre. To make sure everything is working, the Wikimedia Technology department needs to do a planned test. This test will show if they can reliably switch from one data centre to the other. They will switch all traffic to the secondary data center on Wednesday, 12 September On Wednesday, 10 October , they will switch back to the primary data center.

Unfortunately, because of some limitations in MediaWiki , all editing must stop when we switch. In a few weeks the Readers web team will be changing how some templates look on the mobile web site. We will make these templates more noticeable when viewing the article. We ask for your help in updating any templates that don't look correct. What kind of templates? Specifically templates that notify readers and contributors about issues with the content of an article — the text and information in the article. Examples like Template:Unreferenced or Template:More citations needed.

Right now these notifications are hidden behind a link under the title of an article. We will format templates like these mostly those that use Template:Ambox or message box templates in general to show a short summary under the page title. You can tap on the "Learn more" link to get more information. For template editors we have some recommendations on how to make templates that are mobile-friendly and also further documentation on our work so far. If you have questions about formatting templates for mobile, please leave a note on the project talk page or file a task in Phabricator and we will help you.

The Community Wishlist Survey is the process when the Wikimedia communities decide what the Wikimedia Foundation Community Tech should work on over the next year. The Community Tech team is focused on tools for experienced Wikimedia editors. The communities have now posted a long list of technical proposals.

You can vote on the proposals from now until 30 November. You can read more on the wishlist survey page. The Wikimedia Foundation security team is implementing a new password policy and requirements. You can learn more about the project on MediaWiki. These new requirements will apply to new accounts and privileged accounts. New accounts will be required to create a password with a minimum length of 8 characters. Privileged accounts will be prompted to update their password to one that is at least 10 characters in length.

These changes are planned to be in effect on December 13th. If you think your work or tools will be affected by this change, please let us know on the talk page. Sorry for posting this message in English and last minute notification. It is a great place to talk about Wiktionary needs to the chapters and other user groups that compose the Wikimedia movement. For context, there is a short report on what happened last year. The deadline is very close to 24 hrs. The last date for registration is 17 December As a last minute effort, there is a page on meta to decide who will be the representative of the user group to the Wikimedia Summit created.

Please feel free to ask any question on the wiktionary-l mailing list or on the talk page. Love is an important subject for humanity and it is expressed in different cultures and regions in different ways across the world through different gestures, ceremonies, festivals and to document expression of this rich and beautiful emotion, we need your help so we can share and spread the depth of cultures that each region has, the best of how people of that region, celebrate love.

Wiki Loves Love WLL is an international photography competition of Wikimedia Commons with the subject love testimonials happening in the month of February. The primary goal of the competition is to document love testimonials through human cultural diversity such as monuments, ceremonies, snapshot of tender gesture, and miscellaneous objects used as symbol of love; to illustrate articles in the worldwide free encyclopedia Wikipedia, and other Wikimedia Foundation WMF projects.

The theme of iteration is Celebrations, Festivals, Ceremonies and rituals of love. Sign up your affiliate or individually at Participants page. There are several prizes to grab. Hope to see you spreading love this February with Wiki Loves Love! Wiki Loves Love Team. A new beta feature will soon be released on all wikis: The FileExporter. It allows exports of files from a local wiki to Wikimedia Commons, including their file history and page history. Which files can be exported is defined by each wiki's community: Please check your wiki's configuration file if you want to use this feature.

The FileExporter has already been a beta feature on mediawiki. After some functionality was added, it's now becoming a beta feature on all wikis. Deployment is planned for January More information can be found on the project page. As always, feedback is highly appreciated. If you want to test the FileExporter, please activate it in your user preferences. The best place for feedback is the central talk page.

Thank you from Wikimedia Deutschland's Technical Wishes project. The Wikimedia Foundation is planning a global consultation about communication. The goal is to bring Wikimedians and wiki-minded people together to improve tools for communication. We want all contributors to be able to talk to each other on the wikis, whatever their experience, their skills or their devices. We are looking for input from as many different parts of the Wikimedia community as possible.

It will come from multiple projects, in multiple languages, and with multiple perspectives. Not all groups active on wikis or around wikis use the same way to discuss things: it can happen on wiki, on social networks, through external tools Tell us how your group communicates. You can read more about the overall process on mediawiki.

If you have questions or ideas, you can leave feedback about the consultation process in the language you prefer. Ufafanuzi kutoka Wiktionary, kamusi iliyo huru.
