Do you use Wikidata in Wikimedia sibling projects? Tell us about your experiences[immodifika s-sors]

Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English.

Hello, the Wikidata for Wikimedia Projects team at Wikimedia Deutschland would like to hear about your experiences using Wikidata in the sibling projects. If you are interested in sharing your opinion and insights, please consider signing up for an interview with us in this Registration form.
Currently, we are only able to conduct interviews in English.

The front page of the form has more details about what the conversation will be like, including how we would compensate you for your time.

For more information, visit our project issue page where you can also share your experiences in written form, without an interview.
We look forward to speaking with you, Danny Benjafield (WMDE) (talk) 08:53, 5 January 2024 (UTC)

Reusing references: Can we look over your shoulder?[immodifika s-sors]

Apologies for writing in English.

The Technical Wishes team at Wikimedia Deutschland is planning to make reusing references easier. For our research, we are looking for wiki contributors willing to show us how they are interacting with references.

  • The format will be a 1-hour video call, where you would share your screen. More information here.
  • Interviews can be conducted in English, German or Dutch.
  • Compensation is available.
  • Sessions will be held in January and February.
  • Sign up here if you are interested.
  • Please note that we probably won’t be able to have sessions with everyone who is interested. Our UX researcher will try to create a good balance of wiki contributors, e.g. in terms of wiki experience, tech experience, editing preferences, gender, disability and more. If you’re a fit, she will reach out to you to schedule an appointment.

We’re looking forward to seeing you, Thereza Mengs (WMDE)

Feminism and Folklore 2024[immodifika s-sors]

Please help translate to your language

Dear Wiki Community,

You are humbly invited to organize the Feminism and Folklore 2024 writing competition from February 1, 2023, to March 31, 2023 on your local Wikipedia. This year, Feminism and Folklore will focus on feminism, women's issues, and gender-focused topics for the project, with a Wiki Loves Folklore gender gap focus and a folk culture theme on Wikipedia.

You can help Wikipedia's coverage of folklore from your area by writing or improving articles about things like folk festivals, folk dances, folk music, women and queer folklore figures, folk game athletes, women in mythology, women warriors in folklore, witches and witch hunting, fairy tales, and more. Users can help create new articles, expand or translate from a generated list of suggested articles.

Organisers are requested to work on the following action items to sign up their communities for the project:

  1. Create a page for the contest on the local wiki.
  2. Set up a campaign on CampWiz tool.
  3. Create the local list and mention the timeline and local and international prizes.
  4. Request local admins for site notice.
  5. Link the local page and the CampWiz link on the meta project page.

This year, the Wiki Loves Folklore Tech Team has introduced two new tools to enhance support for the campaign. These tools include the Article List Generator by Topic and CampWiz. The Article List Generator by Topic enables users to identify articles on the English Wikipedia that are not present in their native language Wikipedia. Users can customize their selection criteria, and the tool will present a table showcasing the missing articles along with suggested titles. Additionally, users have the option to download the list in both CSV and wikitable formats. Notably, the CampWiz tool will be employed for the project for the first time, empowering users to effectively host the project with a jury. Both tools are now available for use in the campaign. Click here to access these tools

Learn more about the contest and prizes on our project page. Feel free to contact us on our meta talk page or by email us if you need any assistance.

We look forward to your immense coordination.

Thank you and Best wishes,

Feminism and Folklore 2024 International Team

Diskussjoni fuq Termini Islamiċi/Għarbi[immodifika s-sors]

Merħba lilkom!


F'din diskussjoni irrid niddiskuti dwar termini Islamiċi (naturalment mill-Għarbi), speċjalment fuq kif jiġu derivati. Xi drabi sibt xi termini ma eżistentix bil-Malti (jew ma sibthomx :p). Forsi ma nafx dizzjunarji li indirizza dawk it-termini, jekk iva allura jekk jogħġbok idawwalni.

Minn issa, irrid nindirizza dawn it-termini:


1. salah/salat (ir-ritwali tal-qima Islamika) -> sala/Sala jew salat?

2. adhan/azan/azaan/adan (is-sejħa għal salah) -> adan, l-adan

3. zakat/zaka (l-elemosna/karità obbligatorja) -> żaka jew żakat?

4. Eid al-Fitr (din il-frażi hija perfettament "traduċibbli") -> Għid il-Fitr/Għid il-Fatar (jew bħala ortografija alternattiva biss? Eid al-Fitr litteralment jfisser Għid il-fatar bħala festival għax it-tmiem ir-Ramadan)

5. Eid al-Adha -> Għid l-Adħa

6. Sheikh/Sheik/Shaykh -> Xiħ (kognat dirett bl-istess tifsira letterali)

7. Ismijiet ta' xi figuri Islamiċi speċjalment fl-istorja (għax xi pajjiżi Misilmin uża ortografija differenti biex jaqbel mal-pronunzja, pereżempju: Muhammad -> Mhammed, Karim -> Krim, Al-Amin -> L-Emin/Lamine, 'Abd al-Qādir -> Abdelkader, (naħseb rumanizzazzjoni Maltija ta’ ismijiet huma wkoll adattati ħafna u qed jintużaw f’ċerti ismijiet bħal Muhammad -> Muħammed, Isa -> Għisa).


U forsi termini Islamiċi oħra aktar kumplessi wkoll, peress li huma b'xi mod involuti fid-deskrizzjoni kemm tal-istorja Islamika kif ukoll dik medjevali. Grazzi! SidAlmoħadMuwaħħid (d) 23:32, 6 Frar 2024 (UTC)[wieġeb]

Indunajt li ktibt nomi flok ismijiet, skużani hekk :') -- SidAlmoħadMuwaħħid (d) 23:41, 6 Frar 2024 (UTC)[wieġeb]
Interessanti :) Mil-lat terminoloġiku/ortografiku kollha jagħmlu sens, għalkemm nissuġġerixxi 1) salat (peress li sala tintuża għal tifsira oħra) u 6) għalkemm f'xi kuntesti tassew tista' tintuża xiħ direttament, fil-maġġoranza tal-każijiet (bħala titlu), nużaw xejikk (x'aktarx mit-Taljan). Is-sliem. Trigcly (d) 06:13, 7 Frar 2024 (UTC)[wieġeb]
@Trigcly Jien kuntent li tista' taqbel ma' ħafna minnhom :D. Madankollu hawn aktar raġunament għall-għażla tiegħi:
1. Jekk nintużaw salat (għalkemm jagħmel sens sakemm ikun hemm kliem warajh), allura nara kontradizzjoni bil-kelma żaka għax iż-żewġ għandhom l-istess struttura tal-kelma (bl-Għarbi: ṣalāẗ u żakāẗ, ẗ jisparixxi jekk ma jkunx kliem warajha u jaġixxi wkoll bħala indikatur għall-kelma femminili), għalkemm nistaw nagħmlu salat bħala eċċezzjoni, jew bl-ortografija *sla jew *salla (kelma ġdida). Il-forma plural għal din il-kelma tkun salwiet mill-Għarbi ṣalawāt.
6. Rajt xi ħadd użaw xejk minflok xejikk. Naħseb aħjar li nużaw xiħ għal figuri Islamiċi pereżempju studjużi Misilmin, u xejk/xejikk għal figuri politiċi. Innota li l-Għarbi xajkh/xajħ għandu l-plural xujūkh/xujūħ, l-istess bħall-plural ta’ xiħ: xjuħ, hekk il-kelma xejk sa għand *xjuk bħala l-plural tagħha XD. Tatni idea biex nagħmel artiklu bl-isem Xiħ (Għarbi) XD SidAlmoħadMuwaħħid (d) 07:40, 7 Frar 2024 (UTC)[wieġeb]
Tajjeb wisq. Xejk rajtha allavolja stramba għax anke shake (xarba) tinkiteb hekk. Xejikk (pl. xejikki) iktar naħseb tintuża. Trigcly (d) 08:16, 7 Frar 2024 (UTC)[wieġeb]
Hekk naħseb aħjar li juża xejjik (pl. xejjiki) fil-futur. Jekk xejn nistgħu niddiskutu aktar f'din il-paġna ta' diskussjoni. -- SidAlmoħadMuwaħħid (d) 09:16, 7 Frar 2024 (UTC)[wieġeb]
Merħba lilkom!
Reċentement iltqajt ma' kwistjonijiet mal-uża tal-grammatika għal ismijiet tal-Għarbi bi partikolarment l-ismijiet tal-dinastija, speċjalment bil-forma plurali tagħhom. F'dan il-każ nużu il-grammatika Semitika minflok Rumanzi tal-Malti, kif nixtieq l-ismijiet tkunu l-eqreb bl-Għarbi tagħhom. Pereżempju, id-dinastija Idrisija u d-dinastija Umawija (forma maskili: Idrisi u Umawi), xi drabi tirreferihom fil-forma plurali, hekk jew Idrisin u Umawin, jew Idrisijin u Umawijin tajjeb? L-ewwel forsi l-aktar komunement bl-ilsien il-Malti, u l-aħħar l-eqreb bil-forma Għarbi tagħhom. Innutajt ukoll li xi kelmiet li tintuża -jin kif forma plurali, bħal mibnijin. Nixtieq il-fehmiet tal-Maltin nattiv dwar dan qabel nasal għall-konklużjoni tiegħi u apoloġija għan-nuqqas ta' għarfien tiegħi :D. SAM (d) 16:11, 9 Frar 2024 (UTC)[wieġeb]

IMPORTANT: Admin activity review[immodifika s-sors]

Hello. A policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, interface administrator, etc.) was adopted by global community consensus in 2013. According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing administrators' activity on all Wikimedia Foundation wikis with no inactivity policy. To the best of our knowledge, your wiki does not have a formal process for removing "advanced rights" from inactive accounts. This means that the stewards will take care of this according to the admin activity review.

We have determined that the following users meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no logged actions for more than 2 years):

  1. Nevborg (administrator)

These users will receive a notification soon, asking them to start a community discussion if they want to retain some or all of their rights. If the users do not respond, then their advanced rights will be removed by the stewards.

However, if you as a community would like to create your own activity review process superseding the global one, want to make another decision about these inactive rights holders, or already have a policy that we missed, then please notify the stewards on Meta-Wiki so that we know not to proceed with the rights review on your wiki.

Thanks, Superpes15 (d) 22:02, 7 Frar 2024 (UTC)[wieġeb]

@Superpes15: This issue has been brought to the attention of the individual concerned. Speaking as a user with active "advanced rights" on this wiki, we're happy for the global admin activity review to stand in this case. Thanks. -- ToniSant (d) 11:17, 8 Frar 2024 (UTC)[wieġeb]
ToniSant Thanks for the confirmation. I notified Nevborg too and we'll wait for a reply until 6 March. Best regards :) Superpes15 (d) 11:28, 8 Frar 2024 (UTC)[wieġeb]
Hi ToniSant, hope everything is fine, I'm writing just to confirm that we removed the Nevborg's flag! Best regards and let me know if you need further help :) Superpes15 (d) 00:17, 7 Marzu 2024 (UTC)[wieġeb]

The Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C) is a global group dedicated to providing an equitable and consistent implementation of the UCoC. Community members are invited to submit their applications for the U4C. For more information and the responsibilities of the U4C, please review the U4C Charter.

Per the charter, there are 16 seats on the U4C: eight community-at-large seats and eight regional seats to ensure the U4C represents the diversity of the movement.

Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees 2024 Selection[immodifika s-sors]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Dear all,

This year, the term of 4 (four) Community- and Affiliate-selected Trustees on the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees will come to an end [1]. The Board invites the whole movement to participate in this year’s selection process and vote to fill those seats.

The Elections Committee will oversee this process with support from Foundation staff [2]. The Board Governance Committee created a Board Selection Working Group from Trustees who cannot be candidates in the 2024 community- and affiliate-selected trustee selection process composed of Dariusz Jemielniak, Nataliia Tymkiv, Esra'a Al Shafei, Kathy Collins, and Shani Evenstein Sigalov [3]. The group is tasked with providing Board oversight for the 2024 trustee selection process, and for keeping the Board informed. More details on the roles of the Elections Committee, Board, and staff are here [4].

Here are the key planned dates:

  • May 2024: Call for candidates and call for questions
  • June 2024: Affiliates vote to shortlist 12 candidates (no shortlisting if 15 or less candidates apply) [5]
  • June-August 2024: Campaign period
  • End of August / beginning of September 2024: Two-week community voting period
  • October–November 2024: Background check of selected candidates
  • Board's Meeting in December 2024: New trustees seated

Learn more about the 2024 selection process - including the detailed timeline, the candidacy process, the campaign rules, and the voter eligibility criteria - on this Meta-wiki page, and make your plan.

Election Volunteers

Another way to be involved with the 2024 selection process is to be an Election Volunteer. Election Volunteers are a bridge between the Elections Committee and their respective community. They help ensure their community is represented and mobilize them to vote. Learn more about the program and how to join on this Meta-wiki page.

Best regards,

[4] https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_elections_committee/Roles

[5] Even though the ideal number is 12 candidates for 4 open seats, the shortlisting process will be triggered if there are more than 15 candidates because the 1-3 candidates that are removed might feel ostracized and it would be a lot of work for affiliates to carry out the shortlisting process to only eliminate 1-3 candidates from the candidate list.
