Makala fupi[hariri chanzo]

Ninaazimia kufuta makala fupi — Special:Shortpages — kwa sababu nyingi ni duni kabisa (k.m. viungo vya Wikipedia zingine tu, au makala ya kamusi tu). Matt Crypto 10:49, 26 Julai 2005 (UTC)

I intend to delete some of the shorter pages, because many of them aren't of much use at all (for example, containing only interwiki links, or a brief dicdef etc). This makes the encyclopedia look very unpromising indeed. I suggest we cut the cruft, and keep only the articles that are either full articles or proper stubs. Matt Crypto 10:49, 26 Julai 2005 (UTC)

Agreed; nice work! On to the next barrier...' Sj 13:26, 6 Desemba 2005 (UTC)

Makala yanayostahili kufutwa[hariri chanzo]

Tufanyeje kuhusu makala yanayostahili kufutwa? Wikipedia za lugha mbalimbali zina ukurasa wa kupendekeza kufutwa kwa makala. Halafu wanawiki wanaweza kuchangia rai zao.

Mimi ningependekeza kufuta makala Benzi karl fredrickkwa sababu mbili: A) mtu huyu alikuwa na jina kamili ndilo "Carl Friedrich Benz". Tusianze aina hii ya lugha tafadhali - baadaye tutapata "Bushi Georgi" au "Churichilli Winisitoni" au hata "Muwarimu Niyelele" kwa sababu mtu fulani anataka kuingiza lahaja ya nyumbani au tatizo lake la kutamka herufi fulani akidai kasoro yake ndicho Kiswahili chenyewe!! B)makala inajaa makosa - Benz haikuwa mtu wa kwanza aliyetengeneza injini ya petroli. Kwa sababu ya jina la makala ni la makosa haina faida kusahihisha makosa yaliyomo --Kipala 19:32, 26 Januari 2006 (UTC)

Ninakubali ni lazima kutumia jina kamili kwa makala. Wanawiki wote wana uwezo kusogeza makala (bonyeza "sogeza" juu ya makala). Pia, tunaweza kutumia majina mengi kwa makala moja (yaani "redirects": en:Wikipedia:Redirects). Sasa, makala hii inaitwa Carl Friedrich Benz (labda Karl Friedrich Benz ni bora kabisa?).
Kupendekeza makala kufutwa, haidhuru kuuliza hapa kwa sasa; pengine tuanze, kwa mfano, Wikipedia:Makala kwa ufutaji (kuliganan na en:Wikipedia:Articles for Deletion)? . Matt Crypto 21:36, 26 Januari 2006 (UTC)
Sawa, lakini kwa jina twende kwa Benz Karl Friedrich - nimeangalia upya kuna umbo zote mbili ingawa "Karl" ina ushuhuda bora kuliko "Carl" --Kipala 23:40, 26 Januari 2006 (UTC)

Sahihi Yesu Kanisa[hariri chanzo]

inafaa kufutwa. Mwandishi anajaribu kuipeleka katika wikipedia za lugha nyingi. Nimeombwa kuitafsiri lakini sijapata majibu nilipouliza kuhusu mambo mbalimbali; siamini ya kwamba habari zake ni sahihi. Jinsi ilivyo makala ni ya Kiingereza pamoja na maneno kadhaa ya Kiswahili; halafu ameongeza kwa Kiswahili maneno ya Biblia yasiyoeleweka jinsi yalivyo. Sababu ya kuifuta ni pamoja na lugha ya kwamba mwandishi hajui mwenyewe jina la kanisa hili kwa Kiswahili; ameniandikia ya kwamba wako Tanzania, Kenya n.k. lakini hajui jina wanalotumia. "Sahihi Yesu" ni hisia tu. --Kipala 22:44, 18 Machi 2006 (UTC)

Zergeisterung[hariri chanzo]

Neno »Zergeisterung« halina maana kabisa kwa Kijerumani. Makala ni mzaha. Neno hili limewahi kufutwa mara kadhaa katika wikipedia ya kijerumani kwa sababu hawakubali makala ya mzaha. Lifutwe na hapa. --Kipala 21:26, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

Interwiki Bot Status[hariri chanzo]

Hi. I would like to get my interwiki bot YurikBot marked as a bot in your language. The bot is already operating in almost 50 languages, and it would lower the server load and improve the quality of articles if all interwikies are updated at the same time. You can read more or ask questions here. I always run the latest version of the Pywikipediabot (i am also one of the developers of this project). The request for the bot status is here. Please support. Thank you. --Yurik (en) 23:39, 5 Januari 2006 (UTC)

Tahajia ya Jina letu, "Village Pump" na Templeti "Swen"[hariri chanzo]

(sw) Fikra tatu: 1) Tahajia ya Jina la toleo hili la Wikipedia kwa Kiswahili. Sasa ni "Wikipedia". Matoleo mengine yatumia tahajia ya lugha zao, k.m., Wikipedia ya Kifaransa ni "Wikipédia", ya Kiesperanto ni "Vikipedio" etc. Swali langu ni, "Wikipedia" ni tahajia bora kwa toleo la Kiswahili? Labda kitu kama "Wikipidia" au "Wikipiidia" ni bora? 2) Wikipedia zingine zina makala za kuzumgumza juu ya mambo ya mradi wote. Inaitwa "Village Pump" kwa Kiingereza. Sasa, tunatumia makala hii kwa madhumuni ile. Labda tuanze makala ya "Wikipedia:Pampu ya kijiji" (au "Wikipedia:Kisima cha kijiji"...)? 3) Nimetunga Templeti kwa kuandika katika Kiswahili na Kiingereza pamoja. Templeti hii inaitwa "swen". Ninaitumia kwa sababu ninaweza kushiriki kwa Kiswahili cha kiwango cha msingi tu, lakini ningependa kufahamika!  Matt Crypto 13:45, 2 Februari 2006 (UTC)

Sioni tatizo kuhusu "wikipedia" kwa sababu mbili: a)Kiswahili chenyewe ni lugha ya kupokea maneno mapya haraka (kutoka Kiarabu, Kiajemi, Kireno, Kijerumani, Kiingereza pamoja na lugha nyingi za Kibantu); b) maneno yatokayo nje hubadilishwa yasipolingana na tabia ya Kiswahili (k.m.: konsonanti nyingi zinazofuatana hutenganishwa kwa vokali; herufi au sauti zisipopatikana kwa Kiswahili hubadilishwa na herufi ambazo ni kawaida). Hata mifano iliyotajwa hapo juu ya Kifaransa na Kiesperanto inaenda sambamba na msingi huu.
Mimi naona neno "wikipedia" halina kitu kinachodai badiliko: hakuna ufuatano wa konsonanti nyingi wala herufi zisizopatikana katika Kiswahili wala maana ya kando yasiyofaa.
Nimelinganisha kurasa za wikipedia za lugha zingine za Kibantu: vilevile isipokuwa utaratibu wa lugha yenyewe inadai badiliko (taz. st: Wikipedia ya Sesotho; rw: Wikipedia mu Kinyarwanda; tofauti kufuatana na tabia zao: sn: Wikipediya Chishona; xh: iWikipedia Xhosa). --- Basi, ibaki!
Kuhusu Kisima cha Kijiji: si dhana ya Kiafrika sana; ukitaka kuiga mfano wa pampu: iwe baraza. Ndipo sehemu ya nyumba ya Waswahili wenyewe wanapopenda kukaa kivulini na kuzungumza. --Kipala 17:37, 2 Februari 2006 (UTC)

Template:Sanduku la habari za nchi[hariri chanzo]

(sw) Mimi na User:Kipala tumetengeneza templeti ya nchi. Inawezekana kunakili templeti hii kutoka Wikipedia ya Kiingereza. Kwa mfano, angalia Jamhuri ya Kidemokrasia ya Kongo. Ni lazima kubadili "Infobox Country" kwa "Sanduku la habari za nchi", lakini majina ya uga (fields) zinabaki kwa Kiingereza. Data katika uga zinahitaji kutafsiriwa. Napendekeza turuhusu Kiingereza kwa majina ya uga kwa muda mchache, wakati Wikipedia hii ni ndogo, kurahisisha kunakili data. Pia, nimeficha uga kama GDP, HDP na PPP, lakini ni rahisi kuzifichua.  Matt Crypto 16:48, 21 Aprili 2006 (UTC)

==Masahihisho la Sanduku la nchi==
Tunahitaji masahihisho. Country boxes za Kiingereza mara nyingi zina nafasi ya "leader Title1" na "title2" pia "name1" na "name2". Inaleta matatizo kidogo. Naomba mabingwa wasahihishe. --Kipala 18:37, 27 Juni 2006 (UTC)

ndio ni sawa kabisa katika swala zima la wikipedia mi naona halitoki nje ya maudhui kwa sababu limejitosheleza na katika hali zote (kuandika na kutamka) bado halipotezi misngi halisi wa neno lenyewe ila katika hii wikipedia:pump ningeshauri litumike neno kama Baraza au hata kijiwe kwani linaleta maan ya haraka na iliyo wazi katika watumiaji wa lugha ya kiswahili .....[[user:fredwash]1:41 pm, august 2006


Thijs!bot[hariri chanzo]

I would like to ask the support of the community of the swahili wikipedia for getting a bot status to do automatic large-scale addition of interwiki-links. I use the pywikipedia-platform which Yurik mentioned above. The bot adds interwiki-links which are unambigious, which means it only works if all the interlinked wiki-articles have consistent linking among each other. This is an important point to prevent mistakes. Please mention support here, so iI can apply at meta for the botstatus soon. The bot currently works on af, als, ar, ast, az, be, bg, bs, ca, cs, da, de, el, en, eo, es, et, eu, fa, fi, fr, fur, gl, he, hr, hu, ia, id, ie, io, is, it, ka, ko, la, lb, li, lt, lv, mk, nap, nds, nds-nl, nn, no, oc, os, pl, pt, ro, ru, scn, sh, simple, sk, sl, sq, sr, sv, th, tr, vi, zh, zh-yue, an, br, co, cv, cy, ga, hi, ht, id, ie, ku, mr, ne, nrm, pap, sco, se, uk, ta, tl, te, tt, uz, wa, yi, and zh-min-nan.

Looking for help[hariri chanzo]

Hi, unfortunately I don't speak any Kiswahili (sorry!), so I hope someone could respond in English...

First of all, is this the "real" help page? (It's not linked to the respective German page, so I'm a bit confused...) If it's not the right page: Sorry, and could you tell me where else I should ask my question? Thanks!

The reason I'm writing, however, is that I'm looking for information about a river in Tanga. Someone wrote an entry in the German Wikipedia on "Sigifluss" (English translation would be Sigi River), which is supposedly a river in the Tanga province in Tanzania, which had that name until 1918. Now we're trying to find out which river it is and what it is called today. There seems to be a "Sigi River" and even an "mto Sigi"/"Mto Sigi" on the internet, but unfortunately I haven't yet found out if this is 1.) the same river, and b.) the official name of it.

So I'd be grateful for any and every information about the river or anything else that you could tell me about it, or if you could even tell me where to find more information about it (books? internet?). (Maybe you could even mark it on Tanga on wikimapia.org? If you want to do that, just click onto "Add place" in the upper left corner...) I'd be happy to include whatever information I find into the German article--so this is your chance to contribute to the German Wikipedia ;o) ! Thanks a lot (!) in advance, --Ibn Battuta 02:36, 12 Februari 2007 (UTC)

Dear Ibn Battuta, as your chosen name is so closely related to our beautiful Kilwa Kisiwani of course you are most welcome. As for Sigi (Zigi)-River: I just passed by once (maybe User:Rerehambegha has more - he lives in that area.) For a small river you have milked most information from the sources. About the name you have it on the linked reference by Krebs that it is called mostly "Zigi" nowadays, as with many names which were written with "s" by the Germans because German does not write the difference between sharp "s" and soft "z". It is interesting that quite a few times the spelling "sigi" is also found which looks like some memory of the German orthography (or just Tanzanian liberality as far as spelling is concerned?).
From the German Koloniallexikon you see quite clearly that "Sigi" it is the river ending in the Creek that finally forms Tanga Bay. If you look in the internet using "Zigi river" you get a lot more descriptions from different projects about its basin. --Kipala 16:58, 13 Februari 2007 (UTC)
Thanks a lot, Kipala! Yes, another user had found yet more information about the river after I had already posted my question(s) here. As for the Koloniallexikon - is that somewhere online? Otherwise I'm afraid I don't have access to it. And which one is the Sigi/Zigi River on this map: the one right next to Tanga or the one slightly further to the North? Thanks a lot, also for the link to Kilwa Kisiwani, which I didn't know about before (it sounds truly amazing!). --Ibn Battuta 17:41, 17 Februari 2007 (UTC)

Tufunge uhariri kwa wale waliojiandikisha?[hariri chanzo]

Napendekeza kufungs uharitri wa makala kwa watumiaji waliojiandikisha. Uhalifu wote hadi sasa ilikuwa ya watu bila jina. Leo nilirudisha "Msaada wa kuanzisha makala" baada ya uhalifu. Hatujakuwa na matatizo mengi bado lakini ilhali tuko wachache inasumbua hata hivyo. Wasimamizi wenzangu: Je kuna kizuizi chochote tukiruhusu uhariri wote kwa waliojiandikisha tu? --Kipala 20:57, 27 Februari 2007 (UTC)

(Sorry for the English, but I've only got 5 minutes, and it takes me ages to write even half comprehensible Swahili...) You're suggesting we limit editing only to those who have registered. This has been proposed and debated many times elsewhere, but for better or worse -- and to cut a long story short -- Wikimedia Foundation has settled it: see [3]. That is, we have to allow anonymous edits. The advantage is that the barrier to contributing is as low as possible; the cost is that we have to deal with more vandalism. But in truth, there's not really all that much vandalism on sw currently, at least by the standards of en (and I imagine the other larger language editions too). An admin spending a minute each day is more than enough to keep on top of it. Matt Crypto 23:06, 27 Februari 2007 (UTC)
Asante kwa maelezo. Maana yake sisi tunaweza kufunga makala moja-moja? Kuna utaratibu kwa hatua hii? --Kipala 07:38, 28 Februari 2007 (UTC)
Kipala, ninavyoona wewe kama mkabidhi una uwezo ama kulinda makala fulani (bonyeza kitufe kinachosema "linda"; iko katikati ya vitufe vya "historia" na "futa" kando ya juu) ama kumzuia mhalifu asiyejiandikisha (bonyeza kiungo kinachosema "block" baada ya anwani ya ICP ya mhalifu inavyoonekana katika orodha ya "Mabadilisho ya karibuni").

SieBot[hariri chanzo]

Dear user community. I am hereby requesting bot status for SieBot, my robot, using the pywikipedia bot framework to make edits on this wiki in all namespaces related to interwiki links. I already have bot bits at about twenty Wikipedias (nl, en, pt, it to a few larger ones - see interwiki at SieBot's userpage for details). I specifically request a bot bit here because running interwiki, I noticed that I could have made a relatively large amount of edits here. Please let me know if you think I should not start editing with the bot in a few days. Siebrand 17:10, 25 Aprili 2007 (UTC)

I'm happy with you're bot making edits on this wiki. (We don't yet have any formal procedures regarding bot status on this Wikipedia, but I guess if no other user disagrees here, the this shouldn't be a problem. At any rate, other bots have already made edits on this Wikipedia without any special permission; I think the rule is that a bot onle needs a permission if the concerned Wikipedia has some rules about bots, which we don't yet have). Marcos 00:36, 26 Aprili 2007 (UTC) (Admin on this wiki)
Isn't there this bot-flag? I think it helps to get the edits off the screen when you look at "latest edits - hide bots". Ifthat is important one of us should give it tohim - I have no clue how. --84.143.241.182 08:17, 26 Aprili 2007 (UTC)

Bot policy[hariri chanzo]

Hello. To facilitate steward granting of bot access, I suggest implementing the standard bot policy on this wiki. This will involve creating a redirect to this page from Project:Bot policy, and adding a line at the top noting that it is used here. In particular, this policy allows automatic acceptance of known interlanguage linking bots (if this page says that is acceptable), which form the vast majority of such requests.

Please read the text at m:Bot policy before commenting. If you object, please say so; it will be implemented in one week if there is no objection, since it is particularly written to streamline bot requests on wikis with little or no community interested in bot access requests. —Pathoschild 20:04:33, 25 Novemba 2007 (UTC)

Sorry I don't speak any KiSwahili so I'll write in English. I've noticed that a lot of images on this project do not report basic information as author and license, and many are available on commons. Can some sysop have a look at it? Thanks Utente:Cruccone--131.111.76.140 12:35, 3 Desemba 2007 (UTC)

Bot command translations[hariri chanzo]

Hi. Could anybody translate me these interwiki bot commands to Swahili (they will be displayed in all interwiki bot summaries here instead English):

  • robot - ROBOTI
  • Adding: - NYONGEZA
  • Modifying: - BADILIKO
  • Removing: - ONDOA (this one might have to be adapted; I have to see how it looks in Process; try these and come back)

Thank you. lt:User:Hugo.arg 13:50, 6 Januari 2008 (UTC)

Added translations. For the last one lets see. --User_talk:Kipala 16:50, 6 Januari 2008 (UTC)

Changes at "MediaWiki:Common.css"[hariri chanzo]

(communication to user:Malangali) We had a problem with the format of templates for info boxes. I consulted meta:user:Pathoschild who as a steward has given us advice before and he thought the reason was the deletion of "MediaWiki:Common.css" by you. I restored the file and the templates are fine. Probably you had some idea why you deleted this so kindly tell the community on "jumuiya". Pathoschild recommended also restoring MediaWiki:Monobook.js but I have no idea what that is for. Maybe its better to discuss such operations - this one left Muddy and me in the dark for some time. --User_talk:Kipala 18:41, 20 Februari 2008 (UTC)

Interwiki links[hariri chanzo]

Hi,

I saw this Wikipedia in the movie The Truth According to Wikipedia and it was very inspirational.

I don't know Swahili, but i tried browsing around this Wikipedia. In the movie i saw the article Mnazi (kinywaji) and i was curious why did they show it. I found it here, but unfortunately it doesn't have interwiki links to other languages and i have no idea what it is.

I looked at a few of your other pages and found that many of them don't have interwiki links. Good interwiki links strongly improve the encyclopedia. Bots are not enough for this - they just complete the work that human editors do, but human editors should check them and add them where necessary.

In the Hebrew Wikipedia we have developed some tools and processes that help editors improve interwiki links. Please take a look here:

I think that you may find it interesting! Thanks. --Amir E. Aharoni (majadiliano) 08:27, 19 Aprili 2008 (UTC)

Betawiki: better support for your language in MediaWiki[hariri chanzo]

Dear community. I am writing to you to promote a special wiki called Betawiki. This wiki facilitates the localisation (l10n) of the MediaWiki interface. You may have changed many messages here to use your language in the interface, but if you would log in to for example the Japanese language Wiktionary, you would not be able to use the interface as well translated as here. In fact, of 1,736 messages in the core of MediaWiki. Betawiki also supports the translation of messages for 126 extensions, with 2,174 messages. Many of them are used in WMF projects and they are vital for understanding the wiki. Translators for over 100 languages contribute their work to MediaWiki this way every month.

If you wish to contribute to better support of your language in MediaWiki, as well as for many MediaWiki extensions, please visit Betawiki, create an account and request translator privileges. You can see the current status of localisation of your language on MediaWiki.org and do not forget to get in touch with others that may already be working on your language on Betawiki.

If you have any further questions, please let me know on my talk page on Betawiki. We will try and assist you as much as possible, for example by importing all messages from a local wiki for you to start with, if you so desire.

You can also find us on the Freenode IRC network in the channel #mediawiki-i18n where we will be happy to help you get started.
