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.org, meta.wikimedia, deWP, faWP, arWP, koWP and on wikisource.org. After some functionality was added, it's now becoming a beta feature on all wikis. Deployment is planned for January 16. More information can be found on the project page.
You will not be able to edit the wikis for up to 30 minutes on 17 January 07:00 UTC. This is because of a database problem that has to be fixed immediately. You can still read the wikis. Some wikis are not affected. They don't get this message. You can see which wikis are not affected on this page. Most wikis are affected. The time you can't edit might be shorter than 30 minutes. /Johan (WMF)
Next, create a page (or a section on a Village pump, or an e-mail thread – whatever is natural for your group) to collect information from other people in your group. This is not a vote or decision-making discussion: we are just collecting feedback.
Then ask people what they think about communication processes. We want to hear stories and other information about how people communicate with each other on and off wiki. Please consider asking these five questions:
When you want to discuss a topic with your community, what tools work for you, and what problems block you?
What about talk pages works for newcomers, and what blocks them?
What do others struggle with in your community about talk pages?
What do you wish you could do on talk pages, but can't due to the technical limitations?
What are the important aspects of a "wiki discussion"?
Gostaria de deixar este convite para que participem das discussões sobre o processo estratégico. Na fase atual, estamos respondendo a perguntas específicas, que foram separadas em grupos temáticos. Cada pessoa pode escolher um ou mais temas (incluindo todos se quiser) de sua preferência para deixar seus comentários sobre as perguntas, sobre as respostas de outras pessoas ou sobre o que achar relevante de acordo com o tema.
Estou deixando essa mensagem para que os membros do grupo possam participar e compartilhar suas experiências na discussão. É possível que não queiram comentar sobre todos tópicos e prefiram focar em áreas que se relacionem com os projetos em que estão envolvidos, como GLAM, parcerias com instituições, pedidos de grants, etc. Ainda assim, são todos bem-vindos para comentar em todas os grupos.
Por exemplo, talvez queiram participar mais do grupo temático "Diversidade" ou "Parcerias" ou quem sabe "Alocação de recursos"? De alguma forma, se relacionam com ações ligadas aos trabalho comuns a grupos de usuários.
Como podem exercer melhor suas atividades? Como mais pessoas de culturas diferentes podem ter mais acesso a isso? Ainda que talvez não tenha respostas prontas sobre isso, tenho certeza de que possui boas ideias.
Uma informação importante: A participação na wiki é apenas uma das formas. É possível agendar comigo uma conversa por chat, videoconferência, e-mail ou qualquer outro canal que preferir, caso não queira comentar na página indicada acima e levarei suas opiniões diretamente aos grupos de trabalho, bem como poderei tirar dúvidas. Se for este o caso, por favor entre em contato por e-mail, Telegram, WhatsApp, pelos canais indicados em minha página de usuário.
Update on the consultation about office actions[editar]
Last month, the Wikimedia Foundation's Trust & Safety team announced a future consultation about partial and/or temporary office actions. We want to let you know that the draft version of this consultation has now been posted on Meta.
This is a draft. It is not intended to be the consultation itself, which will be posted on Meta likely in early September. Please do not treat this draft as a consultation. Instead, we ask your assistance in forming the final language for the consultation.
For that end, we would like your input over the next couple of weeks about what questions the consultation should ask about partial and temporary Foundation office action bans and how it should be formatted. Please post it on the draft talk page. Our goal is to provide space for the community to discuss all the aspects of these office actions that need to be discussed, and we want to ensure with your feedback that the consultation is presented in the best way to encourage frank and constructive conversation.
Please visit the consultation draft on Meta-wiki and leave your comments on the draft’s talk page about what the consultation should look like and what questions it should ask.
Feedback wanted on Desktop Improvements project[editar]
Por favor, ajude a traduzir para o seu idioma
Olá. The Readers Web team at the WMF will work on some improvements to the desktop interface over the next couple of years. The goal is to increase usability without removing any functionality. We have been inspired by changes made by volunteers, but that currently only exist as local gadgets and user scripts, prototypes, and volunteer-led skins. We would like to begin the process of bringing some of these changes into the default experience on all Wikimedia projects.
We are currently in the research stage of this project and are looking for ideas for improvements, as well as feedback on our current ideas and mockups. So far, we have performed interviews with community members at Wikimania. We have gathered lists of previous volunteer and WMF work in this area. We are examining possible technical approaches for such changes.
We would like individual feedback on the following:
Identifying focus areas for the project we have not yet discovered
Expanding the list of existing gadgets and user scripts that are related to providing a better desktop experience. If you can think of some of these from your wiki, please let us know
Feedback on the ideas and mockups we have collected so far
We would also like to gather a list of wikis that would be interested in being test wikis for this project - these wikis would be the first to receive the updates once we’re ready to start building.
When giving feedback, please consider the following goals of the project:
Make it easier for readers to focus on the content
Provide easier access to everyday actions (e.g. search, language switching, editing)
Put things in logical and useful places
Increase consistency in the interface with other platforms - mobile web and the apps
Plan for future growth
As well as the following constraints:
Not touching the content - no work will be done in terms of styling templates or to the structure of page contents themselves
Not removing any functionality - things might move around, but all navigational items and other functionality currently available by default will remain
No drastic changes to the layout - we're taking an evolutionary approach to the changes and want the site to continue feeling familiar to readers and editors
