Yaliyomo

Karibuni mwaka 2015

Tunawatakia heri wachangiaji na wasomaji wote kwa mwaka mpya 2015.

Kura juu ya utaratibu wa kuanzisha makala mapya ("Community request to disable article page creation by anonymous/IP editors" )

Napendekeza kurudia kura juu ya utaratibu wa kuanzisha makala mapya.

  • Tuliwahi kuifanya mwaka 2012, tazama Wikipedia:Jumuia/Kumbukumbu_2012_hadi_2013#Pendekezo:_Utaratibu_wa_kuanzisha_makala.
  • Nilipofuatilia ikatokea majadiliano hapa: Kumbukumbu ya majadiliano ya masteward wa Meta
  • Majibu yalinikatisha tamaa. Mwaka 2014 nilipata nafasi kujadili jambo tena na mtu wa wikimedia wako tayari kutusaidia kama bado jumuiya inakubali.
  • Nimeona ya kwamba idadi kubwa ya wikipedia hazina mabano lakini zifuatazo pamoja na Kiingereza (ambayo ni kubwa kabisa) zina: "en.wiki, id.wiki, fa.wiki, ta.wiki and es.books as of 2011." (yaani Kiingereza, Kifarsi, Kitamili na Kiindonesia)
  • Pendekezo lina sehemu mbili naomba kupinga au kukubali sehemu 1 na 2 pekee:
  1. "makala mapya yanaweza kuanzishwa na watumiaji waliojiandikisha pekee lakini kila mtu anaweza kufungua ukurasa wa majadiliano na kuchangia hapo". (article creation disabled for unregistered users but talk space open).
  2. "Makala yanaweza kubadilishwa na wachangiaji waliojiandikisha pekee; kurasa za majadiliao yanaweza kuhaririwa na mtu yeyote bila kujiandikisha" ("namespace edits restricted to registered users, talkspace open")
  3. Sababu: Wahariri wachache wa kudumu wanaojua utaratibu wa wikipedia wanashindwa kuangalia kila badiliko kwa hiyo makala yasiyofaa yameingia katika wikipedia yetu na mabadiliko yasiyofaa yamo ndani ya makala. (Reason: the few permanent contributors who know the rules and the system cannot keep up daily with new articles and edits, thus unsuitable articles have been joined to this wikipedia and unsuitable edits have remained"). Naomba watumiaji wote kuchangia! Kipala (majadiliano) 11:54, 3 Februari 2015 (UTC)
YesY Ninakubali bila shaka, lakini utaratibu wa kura ni gani? ChriKo (majadiliano) 23:01, 11 Februari 2015 (UTC)
YesY Nakubali. --Baba Tabita (majadiliano) 06:58, 12 Februari 2015 (UTC)

Sorry for writing in English, please translate. The change was implemented but will be reverted on 2015-09-15 unless there is a demonstration that all alternatives fail: see phabricator:T44894 and update us there (you can login with your Wikipedia account). Things to consider in a future discussion:

Alternatives the community is expected to test in this period:

Administrator's inactivity

Hi. I would like to notify a community of this project that stewards and their delegates are checking activity of admistrators in accordance with the AAR policy. On this Wikipedia one user with these rights (User:Ndesanjo) is inactive for more than two years. As I see here, sysop rights are removed after a vote. Is it an official local policy?

Tshirt kwa wikipedia ya Kiswahili

Hapo mapendekezo mawili kwa Tshirt ya Wikipedia ya Kiswahili. Nimetunga chaguo 2 kwa mbele na 2 kwa nyuma. Naomba mawazo yenu!

Mapendekezo kwa Tshirt ya Wikipedia ya Kiswahili

Kwa mifano ya rangi mwangalie hapa: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Wikipedia_T-shirts na http://instagram.com/p/x5S1EsnvKn/.

Kwa hiyo tunaweza kutumia kitambaa cheupecheupe na logo/maandishi nyeusi au kinyume. Mawazo yenu! Kipala (majadiliano) 09:08, 7 Februari 2015 (UTC)

Napenda zaidi maandishi marefu: ya chini kwa mbele, ya juu kwa nyuma. Ila ya kwanza yamekosea: ni "naandika" si "naandike". Asante, Kipala! --Riccardo Riccioni (majadiliano) 10:28, 7 Februari 2015 (UTC)
Ninakubaliana na Riccardo kuhusu maandishi. Kuhusu rangi ninapendelea kitambaa cheupe na maandishi meusi. ChriKo (majadiliano) 11:53, 8 Februari 2015 (UTC)
Nawaunga mkono: ya chini kwa mbele, ya juu kwa nyuma. Kuhusu rangi napendelea kuvaa nyeusi, yaani maandishi meupe. Je, lazima tuchague rangi moja tu, au inawezekana kupata idadi kadhaa kuwa nyeupe na idadi kadhaa nyeusi? --Baba Tabita (majadiliano) 17:22, 8 Februari 2015 (UTC)
Haya juu ya maandishi tunakubaliana. kuhusu rangi naunga mkono na Baba Tabita lakini si kitu sana. Naona Ricccardo aseme maana anajua watu wake. Saizi ziwe tofauti, nadhani, XXXL pamoja na ndogo zaidi. Swali kwa Riccardo: uliniandikia ya kwamba unajua mahali pale Dar wanapotengeneza Tshirt. Je unafikiri ya kwamba unaweza kuagiza huko? Wanahitaji nini? Kipala (majadiliano) 19:13, 8 Februari 2015 (UTC)
Leo hii rafiki yangu anakwenda Dar kutengeneza tisheti 400 zenye maandishi ya shule kwa ajili ya wanafunzi kwa Tsh. 5,000 kila moja. Kwa kitambaa bora zaidi ni TSh. 6,500. Kwa nakala chache, sijui. Amani kwenu! --Riccardo Riccioni (majadiliano) 10:16, 9 Februari 2015 (UTC)
Nakubali kuagiza hizi tisheti kwa gharama ya dola 150. Nitaagiza rangi mbalimbali: au siyo? --Riccardo Riccioni (majadiliano) 13:57, 13 Februari 2015 (UTC)
Asante sana. Agiza tu rangi unazopendelea. Kipala (majadiliano) 20:02, 15 Februari 2015 (UTC)

Inspire Campaign: Improving diversity, improving content

This March, we’re organizing an Inspire Campaign to encourage and support new ideas for improving gender diversity on Wikimedia projects. Less than 20% of Wikimedia contributors are women, and many important topics are still missing in our content. We invite all Wikimedians to participate. If you have an idea that could help address this problem, please get involved today! The campaign runs until March 31.

All proposals are welcome - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive, positive feedback on ideas is appreciated, and collaboration is encouraged - your skills and experience may help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign and help this project better represent the world’s knowledge!

Stewards confirmation rules

Hello, I made a proposal on Meta to change the rules for the steward confirmations. Currently consensus to remove is required for a steward to lose his status, however I think it's fairer to the community if every steward needed the consensus to keep.

Nominations are being accepted for 2015 Wikimedia Foundation elections

This is a message from the 2015 Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee. Translations are available.

Wmf logo vert pms.svg

Greetings,

I am pleased to announce that nominations are now being accepted for the 2015 Wikimedia Foundation Elections. This year the Board and the FDC Staff are looking for a diverse set of candidates from regions and projects that are traditionally under-represented on the board and in the movement as well as candidates with experience in technology, product or finance. To this end they have published letters describing what they think is needed and, recognizing that those who know the community the best are the community themselves, the election committee is accepting nominations for community members you think should run and will reach out to those nominated to provide them with information about the job and the election process.

This year, elections are being held for the following roles:

Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is the decision-making body that is ultimately responsible for the long term sustainability of the Foundation, so we value wide input into its selection. There are three positions being filled. More information about this role can be found at the board elections page.

Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC)
The Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) makes recommendations about how to allocate Wikimedia movement funds to eligible entities. There are five positions being filled. More information about this role can be found at the FDC elections page.

Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) Ombud
The FDC Ombud 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. One position is being filled. More information about this role can be found at the FDC Ombudsperson elections page.

The candidacy submission phase lasts from 00:00 UTC April 20 to 23:59 UTC May 5 for the Board and from 00:00 UTCApril 20 to 23:59 UTC April 30 for the FDC and FDC Ombudsperson. This year, we are accepting both self-nominations and nominations of others. More information on this election and the nomination process can be found on the 2015 Wikimedia elections page on Meta-Wiki.

Please feel free to post a note about the election on your project's village pump. Any questions related to the election can be posted on the talk page on Meta, or sent to the election committee's mailing list, board-elections -at- wikimedia.org

On behalf of the Elections Committee,

ContentTranslation - kifaa kipya cha MediaWiki.org

Wapendwa, nilikaribishwa kujiunga na kifaa kipya cha "Content_translation" kilichoundwa na MediaWiki.org (tovuti kwa kuendeleza programu za wikimedia pamoja na wikipedia). Naelewa kifaa hiki iko bado katika hali ya majaribio kwa hiyo hakipatikani kwa watu wote bado. Mnavyojua mimi si rafiki wa tafsiri ya kompyuta baada ya maarifa mabaya tuliyokuwa nayo miaka 5 iliyopita kwenye mashindano ya google.

  • kifaa cha Content_translation bado haiwezi kutafsiri kwa Kiswahili
  • ukijaribu kitafungua dirisha yenye sehemu mbili: upande mmoja unachagua makala asili, kwa mfano ya Kiingereza (au lugha nyingine), upande mwingine utachagua lugha unayolenga (k.m. Kswahili) na sehemu uliyochagua za matini asilia (ya Kiingereza) inaonekana hapa.
  • halafu unabofya "translate"
  • itakuambia ya kwamba tafsiri kwa Kiswahili bado haifanyi kazi, dirisha upande wa Kiswahili inaendelea kuonyesha matini ya Kiingereza
  • LAKINI sasa una nafasi ya kuihifadhi. Nimeijaribu kumba nikapata makala mpya "linganifu" katika wikipedia yetu na ndani yake matini ya Kiingereza niliyowahi kuchagua awali.

Ni tumaini yangu ya kwamba kifaa hiki hakitapatikana kwa umma kwa muda mrefu. Inaonekana kuna lugha ambako matokeo ni afadhali na wahariri wa huku wanapenda kutumia tafsiri ya kompyuta. Machoni pangu bado miaka mingi hadi tafsiri kompyuta itafanya kazi kwa Kiswahili. Mimi siipendi kabisa, nikawaomba waondoe nafasi ya Kiswahili katika programu hii. Tazama https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Talk:Content_translation. Ikipatikana itakaribisha watu kucheza-cheza nahofia matokeo mabaya. Kipala (majadiliano) 06:36, 24 Mei 2015 (UTC)

Pywikibot compat will no longer be supported - Please migrate to pywikibot core

Sorry for English, I hope someone translates this.
Pywikibot (then "Pywikipediabot") was started back in 2002. In 2007 a new branch (formerly known as "rewrite", now called "core") was started from scratch using the MediaWiki API. The developers of Pywikibot have decided to stop supporting the compat version of Pywikibot due to bad performance and architectural errors that make it hard to update, compared to core. If you are using pywikibot compat it is likely your code will break due to upcoming MediaWiki API changes (e.g. T101524). It is highly recommended you migrate to the core framework. There is a migration guide, and please contact us if you have any problem.

There is an upcoming MediaWiki API breaking change that compat will not be updated for. If your bot's name is in this list, your bot will most likely break.

Thank you,

Vifupisho vya lugha

Wapendwa, nikitunga makala mpya na lemma ni neno lenye asili ya nje napenda kudokeza asili ya neno kwa kuongeza lugha na neno asilia kwa mabano; vilevile kwa lemma nyingi za sayansi na teknolojia ambayo majina yanajulikana zaidi kwa Kiingereza naongeza Kiingereza kwa mabano. Hapo napendelea kutumia vifupisho, hasa ing. kwa Kiingereza, far. kwa Kifaransa, lat. kwa Kilatini na kadhalika.

Naona wengine wetu hawapendezwi mno nayo, na kuna masahihisho kubadilisha vifupisho kuwa virefusho :-). Sina neno ila napenda kusema kwa nini naifanya vile. Kama jina la lemma linaelezwa palepale mwanzoni sipendi kuvunja sentensi ya kwanza kwa mabano marefu. Nadhani hii inaongeza ugumu wa kusoma.

Ni tofauti kama lemma yenyewe inahitaji maelezo zaidi ni afadhali kuacha mabano na kuwa na kifungu cha "etimolojia". Naona katika kamusi nyingi ni jambo la kawaida ila tu naona tangu nimeanza ya kwamba Kamusi ya Kiswahili Sanifu ya TUKI inatumia pia vifupisho lakini tofauti.

Hapo Swali langu ni: Je tukitumia vifupisho ya lugha je umbo ni muhimu namna gani? Natoa mifano ya vifupisho vya Kamusi ya Kiswahili Sanifu (na zile ambazo mimi natumia siku hizi): Kng (ing.), Kar (ar.), Kaj (aj.), Kbr, Kch, Kfa (far.), Khi, Kgk (gir.), Kje (jer.), Kjp, Kla (lat.), Kre, Ktu (tur.),

Niongeze ya kwamba hapo zamani nilitumia vifupisho tofauti za kufanana na hizi za Kamusi kama "Kijer" , Kiing" lakini baadaye nikaona nifupishe zaidi. Manonaje - muhimu au la ilhali kuna viungo?Kipala (majadiliano) 14:38, 21 Juni 2015 (UTC)

Proposal to create PNG thumbnails of static GIF images

The thumbnail of this gif is of really bad quality.
How a PNG thumb of this GIF would look like

There is a proposal at the Commons Village Pump requesting feedback about the thumbnails of static GIF images: It states that static GIF files should have their thumbnails created in PNG. The advantages of PNG over GIF would be visible especially with GIF images using an alpha channel. (compare the thumbnails on the side)

This change would affect all wikis, so if you support/oppose or want to give general feedback/concerns, please post them to the proposal page. Thank you. --McZusatz (talk) & MediaWiki message delivery (majadiliano) 05:07, 24 Julai 2015 (UTC)

What does a Healthy Community look like to you?

Community Health Cover art News portal.png

Hi,
The Community Engagement department at the Wikimedia Foundation has launched a new learning campaign. The WMF wants to record community impressions about what makes a healthy online community. Share your views and/or create a drawing and take a chance to win a Wikimania 2016 scholarship! Join the WMF as we begin a conversation about Community Health. Contribute a drawing or answer the questions on the campaign's page.

Why get involved?

The world is changing. The way we relate to knowledge is transforming. As the next billion people come online, the Wikimedia movement is working to bring more users on the wiki projects. The way we interact and collaborate online are key to building sustainable projects. How accessible are Wikimedia projects to newcomers today? Are we helping each other learn?
Share your views on this matter that affects us all!
We invite everyone to take part in this learning campaign. Wikimedia Foundation will distribute one Wikimania Scholarship 2016 among those participants who are eligible.

Wikidata: Access to data from arbitrary items is coming

(Sorry for writing in English)

When using data from Wikidata on Wikipedia and other sister projects, there is currently a limitation in place that hinders some use cases: data can only be accessed from the corresponding item. So, for example, the Wikipedia article about Berlin can only get data from the Wikidata item about Berlin but not from the item about Germany. This had technical reasons. We are now removing this limitation. It is already done for many projects. Your project is one of the next ones. We will roll out this feature here on August 12.

We invite you to play around with this new feature if you are one of the people who have been waiting for this for a long time. If you have technical issues/questions with this you can come to d:Wikidata:Contact the development team.

A note of caution: Please be careful with how many items you use for a single page. If it is too many pages, loading might get slow. We will have to see how the feature behaves in production to see where we need to tweak and how.
