Moderation issues on Lithuanian Wikipedia[redaguoti vikitekstą]

Could someone please take a look at suspected moderation bias and excessive deletion? More details at – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Teahouse#Excessive_moderation_or_non_constructive_editing? Alternative link (same location) – https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Teahouse&action=edit&section=49 199.229.250.133 17:35, 24 sausio 2018 (EET) (Domeikavietis, from an online proxy)

Visų pirma, atkreipiu dėmesį, kad Vikipedijoje redaguodamas straipsnius (daugiausia apie Domeikavą) naudojotės jau ne viena paskyra, kas yra Vikipedijos taisyklių pažeidimas. Visų antra, Jūsų keitimai tiek mano, tiek kitų naudotojų buvo ne kartą atmesti (turinys netinkamas enciklopedijai ir pan.). Negalima sakyti, kad viskas absoliučiai netinkama enciklopedijai, bet visgi čia ne geltonieji puslapiai ir straipsnių nepildome tarsi būtume nekilnojamojo turto agentai, suinteresuoti, kad žmonės pirktų būstą būtent Domeikavoje. Taigi, neaprašinėjame kiekvienos atidarytos vaistinės ir pan. --Homo ergaster (aptarimas) 17:50, 24 sausio 2018 (EET)
Beje, Vikipedija rašoma lietuvių kalba, EN Wiki čia nelabai kuo susijusi. --Homo ergaster (aptarimas) 17:52, 24 sausio 2018 (EET)
Kurias paskyras turite omenyje? Nes turiu Domeikavietis. Viena paskyra, Domeikavietis. Kartais, kai buvau išsilogines, redagavau su IP. Ir nesupratęs kad Wikimedia ir Wikipedia yra tas pats buvau susikūręs kitą vartotoją nuotraukai įkelti. Taip kad kitų paskyrų nėra. Dabar esu priverstas prisijungti per proxy, nes esu uzblokuotas (mano nuomone be priezasties). Neesu NT agentas, bet esu Domeikavos gyventojas ir esu suinteresuotas kad informacija apie Domeikavą būtų lengvai randama. Ir toks faktas kaip Domeikavoj yra x muziejus ar y centras vargu ar paveikia NT pirkėjus. 199.229.250.114 18:42, 24 sausio 2018 (EET)

Drąsu teigti kad meluoju... Jeigu atrodo kad ten aš, viešinkit IP adresus, browser fingerprint ir kt. Pažiūrėsim ar meluoju ar kažkas klaidingai atrodo. Aš pažįstu kas turi casus fortuitus nick'a bet tai nekeicia fakto kad tai neesu as. Bet net ne tame esmė. Jeigu ta informacija iš Domeikavos puslapio pašalinta deramai, tokiu atveju einu pagal ta pacia logika pratrinti kitu Wiki puslapiu apie Lietuvos miestus. Matau kad bus daug ką trinti apie Jonavos kolektyvus, Palangos pastatus ar Visagino transportą. As aisku sarkastiskai, bet kodel taikomi dvigubi standartai? Gal butu laikas dali teksto apie Domeikava visgi sugrazinti? Ar bent duoti konkretesnes instukcijas kokios informacijos ieskoti jeigu noriu praplesti Domeikavos Wiki poskyre? 199.229.250.144 19:00, 24 sausio 2018 (EET) (Domeikavietis)
Aš čia neesu tam kad pyktis. Man atrodo kad pakeitimai geri. Wiki taisykles skaičiau. Jeigu negeri, norėčiau praplėsti kad butu gerai. Kokios informacjos ieškoti ir kokių nuotraukų padaryti? 199.229.250.144 19:02, 24 sausio 2018 (EET)
Na, tai kad Jūsų atveju drąsu teigti, jog nenaudojate klonų. Užtenka palyginti indėlį (ypač kreipimąsi į EN Wiki TeaHouse)... --Homo ergaster (aptarimas) 19:07, 24 sausio 2018 (EET)

#WikiGap in Vilnius with the Swedish Embassy[redaguoti vikitekstą]

Hi fellow Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Sverige is working with the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs to organize the WikiGap initiative on 8 March 2018. The Swedish Embassy in Vilnius has reached out to me and they are interested in hosting an edit-a-thon – so we are looking for volunteers interested in discussing possibilities directly with the embassy. You can read more about the initiative on Meta, it will take place in more than 30 countries around the world in March. It would be great to see Lithuania joining.

Are you interested in helping out? Please let me know and I will happily connect you with the embassy staff.

Best regards, --Sara Mörtsell (WMSE) (aptarimas) 11:06, 31 sausio 2018 (EET)

Hi, @Sara Mörtsell (WMSE):, thank you for sharing this interesting event. As far as I know Lithuanian Wikipedia had never done before an edit-a-thon, so it will be probably hard to find any moderators. However I think this is a good opportunity to break the ice in our small community. How many people you need for this event to happen?--Zygimantus (aptarimas) 13:24, 31 sausio 2018 (EET)
@Zygimantus:Excellent to hear back from you. I agree that this may be an interesting opportunity for Wikimedians to meet in person in your community. The event should be organized so that they meet what resources are available. If there is one Wikimedia volunteer involved perhaps the event should be open to about five participants to learn how to make small edits, if there are two volunteers helping maybe there can be more participants. Discussing with the Embassy staff may give some ideas of what they would like to see happen, and they will learn about what help and support is available from the Wikipedia community. --Sara Mörtsell (WMSE) (aptarimas) 18:50, 31 sausio 2018 (EET)

of closing the gender gap and other gaps relevant for diversity on Wikipedia. Matyt, ne apie indų poetes ir indėnų tautas rašyti reiks. Diversity šiais laikais reiškia labai konkrečią vieną "įvairovę". Panašu, kad čia į gražų pakelį įvyniota visokių žydrųjų propaganda. Nieko nuostabaus - iš skandinavų tik to ir galima tikėtis... Hugo.arg (aptarimas) 12:00, 1 vasario 2018 (EET)

@Hugo.arg: man rodos, jog čia nėra jokios potekstės, kurią tu įžvelgi. Čia su tuo „Gender gap“ tiesiog siekiama įtrauki daugiau moterų redaguoti Vikipediją, t.y., panaikinti stereotipą, jog wiki redaguoja daugiausia vyrai ir taip pasiekti 50/50 santykį.--Zygimantus (aptarimas) 12:36, 1 vasario 2018 (EET)

CEE Spring 2018 — international article contest — looking for local coordinator[redaguoti vikitekstą]

Wikimedia CEE Spring 2018 is annual article writing contests which will happen for the 4th time this year. International team is looking for a local coordinator from each country in Central and Eastern Europe and wee need one from Lithuania. Local coordinator is responsible for:

  • Creating article list about Lithuania (recommendation: 100 topics which have decent article in English Wikipedia, do not need to be most important topics about Lithuania)
  • Creating local information page about contest
  • Promoting contest (site notice, social media, talk page messages,...)
  • (Optional) evaluate results and decide on winners in several categories. International team will provide automatic statistics if you create a talk page template and add to all new articles (details fill follow). You can get prize money for winners (up to 400 EUR) from the international team.

If you are interested, contact me for details and sign up as local coordinator on this page. --Papuass (aptarimas) 17:28, 13 vasario 2018 (EET)

Photographic trip for wikipedians[redaguoti vikitekstą]

There is a plan to make a photo-trip between August 24-26 from Estonia to Lithuania. That would focus on the route of Rail Baltica.

According to the current estimate in Estonia, we may have 2 cars full of people and from Latvia 1 car. We may start from Tallinn on August 24th, so that we can also have one get-together to celebrate the birthday of Estonian Wikipedia. And the plan to end in Lithuania.

Are there also some wikipedians in Lithuania that are interested to participate? Kruusamägi (aptarimas) 16:52, 8 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)

So, are there any interested Lithuanians? Kruusamägi (aptarimas) 11:26, 10 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
+ are there some wikipedians in Kaunas who might join Estonians and Latvians during lunch in 26th of August? Kruusamägi (aptarimas) 00:54, 18 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
This Forumas seems almost dead to me. Like really, Estonians make as many edits in a day or two in our Forum, than what is made here in a month. So I'll try a different approch, as I can't be sure if someone actually even reads this page.

@Kruusamägi: Hello. For me intresting is football and groundhopping, not railway. :) In this year i made pictures in stadiums and only 3 pictures was in town, when made few shoots on river. Welcome to LTU, i hope, you`ll found here what you want. Makenzis (aptarimas) 10:30, 21 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
In practice we photograph pretty much everything that is in our way and it isn't even the first trip between countries for us (some examples: LV2014, LV2013).
There is also a question if some of you might be interested in a meetup in Kaunas. Kruusamägi (aptarimas) 18:03, 21 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)

All principal Lithuanian objects have their pictures. Most of unillustrated objects are in rural areas, outside of the main routes. Also, what is the point to have one car full of photographers? All of them would take pictures of the same place... Nonsense. One photographer + one driver (could be 2 for the rest of another) could cover wide enough area using less resources (lighter car, less food, etc.). Or even better 3-4 cars covering very different regions. Hugo.arg (aptarimas) 18:20, 21 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)

Hugo.arg, I can assure you that we know what we are doing and why we are doing it. If that is not clear, then you may look around in Commons a bit. Estonia is very well covered with images, Lithuania not so. Difference becomes even more drastical when we look at quality or featured images. You have hardly anything and most of that is purely thanks to foreign fotographers, like Poco a poco (1/3 of Lithuanian quality images) or Diliff (79% of all your featured images), who have just happened to visit your country. At the same time Estonia is among the top countries by the number quality or featured images added. So please, don't lecture an Estonian on this.
We are not only aiming for images about some specific items, but the goal of this trip is to document something that may become interesting in the future (that article may give some idea). At least in Estonia we are way past of the point were we just wanted some images about the things we have articles about. That was easy.
And I pinged people to ask about meetup. There doesn't seem to be many photographers anyway. Kruusamägi (aptarimas) 02:52, 22 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)

Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2018[redaguoti vikitekstą]

(Sorry for writing in English only, but I do not speak any Lithuanian. Please do not hesitate to add a translation of my post into Lithuanian)

Dear Lithuanian Wikipedians,

I am a member of the organising team of Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2018, a meeting of Wikipedians from our region, Central and Eastern Europe. I am contacting you because we need representation from Lithuanian community. Unfortunately, no Lithuanian Wikipedians registered so far.

Wikimedia CEE Meeting is a three-day conference where participants can: learn from experience of other countries of our region (for example, recruiting new editors or working with museums), participate in trainings (for example, Wikidata or bots) or work on regional projects (such as CEE Spring) etc.

This year Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2018 will be organised in Lviv, Ukraine, on 13–15 October.

We have two scholarships for the Lithuanian community. Each scholarship covers travel from Lithuania to Lviv and back, hotel, meals and conference participation.

We are looking for participants who are: people most involved in decision-making in your community, people who organise online collaborations, people who lead partnerships between Wikipedia community and other organisations, people who prepared offline events. Participants should speak English as the conference will be in English. The registration page for participants is here: m:Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2018/Participants

Can you please suggest names of people who will be good representatives of Lithuanian community? Are any of you interested in participating in this conference?

Thank you, on behalf of Wikimedia CEE Meeting team — NickK (aptarimas) 06:39, 9 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)

Pinging participants of previous events, active administrators and most active Vikipedija:Savaitės iniciatyva participants: Audriusa, Creative, Dirgela, E rulez, Homo ergaster, Hugo.arg, Italas, JonasS, MHz`as, Nomad, Powermelon, SQORP, Vaidila, Vilensija, ZygimantusNickK (aptarimas) 06:48, 9 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
I'd be happy to participate. October is still far away but I believe I will be able to make time for this event. --Nomad (aptarimas) 14:52, 9 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
Hi Nomad and thank you for your interest! I would suggest to wait a few days to wait if anyone else is interested or if there are any suggestions from the community. In any case it is already great to see your interest as we did not have any participants from Lithuanian community last year — NickK (aptarimas) 17:32, 9 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
Hi, three days event is too long for me, thank you for invitation, Nomad would be a great representative.--Dirgela (aptarimas) 20:36, 9 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
The deadline for registration for the Lithuanian community representatives is 15 August. As there are no objections against Nomad's application, I think we can consider that his application is accepted and he can register: m:Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2018/Participants. We still have one place available for the second representative of the Lithuanian community, so feel free to apply if you are interested in — NickK (aptarimas) 18:50, 10 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
In absence of others who are interested, I cannot deny my interest in attending this event. At Wikimania, several Wikimedians pointed to the fact that offline collaboration in Lithuania and within the Lithuanian language community does barely exist. As a Lithuanian grown up in Germany (and intent to return to Lithuania next year), I am highly interested in improving the situation and think the CEE conference might be especially useful as a start. Also, I would be very happy if establishing a user group could succeed by the end of this year. However, I recognise that due to my absence of substantial edits to the Lithuanian language Wikipedia, I do not represent the Lithuanian language Wikipedia community very well. Therefore, I would of course yield precedence to another community member more qualified than me. --Vogone (aptarimas) 03:37, 11 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)

Hello, braliukas! Vogone, I might have been one of these people at Wikimania :) I would recommend Lithuanian community to embrace this opportunity (and those which will follow it). Latvian community has greatly benefited from being part of bigger Wikimedia community and in many cases the support has come from CEE people. There is also an opportunity to attend a 2 day meeting in Stockholm a week before CEE Meeting for up to 5 Lithuanians (will post about it shortly). --Papuass (aptarimas) 15:27, 14 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)


Just to remind you that you have less than two days left to register your delegates. Nobody from Lithuanian community registered yet.
Nomad, I think your application is supported. Can you please confirm if you will be able to participate.
I do confirm I will be able to :) Thank you again for the invitation --Nomad (aptarimas) 21:55, 14 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
Unfortunately nobody else answered positively. Audriusa, Creative, E rulez, Homo ergaster, Italas, JonasS, MHz`as, Powermelon, SQORP, Vaidila, Zygimantus: are any of you interested in participation?
If nobody else is interested, do you approve Vogone as a representative of Lithuanian community?
Thanks — NickK (aptarimas) 16:01, 14 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
Not that I am against Vogone participating in the event, but it would be difficult to say that he is representing Lithuanian community for the reasons he has pointed out himself.--Dirgela (aptarimas) 20:45, 14 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
Dirgela, can you perhaps suggest other users, or convince anyone I listed above? Unfortunately only Nomad answered possibly, and several users including you answered negatively. Otherwise, if three-day conference is too long for you, maybe you can come for at least two days (you can take a night bus on Friday evening, spend Saturday and Sunday at the conference and come back by a night bus by Monday morning)? We are already happy to have one participant from Lithuania but it would be better to have two :) Thanks — NickK (aptarimas) 22:29, 14 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
Dirgela: Labas vakaras! Iš vienos pusės aš suprantu, kad Jums dėl manęs gali kilti abejonių. Bet kita vertus manau, kad lietuvių bendruomenė - tai daugiau, nei lietuviška Vikipedija. Dalyvaujant dviese, Nomad būtų geru šio projekto reprezentantu, o aš vykčiau kaip lietuvių bendruomenės atstovas, dirbantis su kitais Vikimedijos projektais. Be to tai būtų puiki proga asmeniškai susipažinti su Nomadu ir su juo kalbėtis apie naujus su Lietuva susijusius projektus. O tai ir yra tokių CEE susitikimų tikslas. Šį forumo skyrių aš radau visai atsitiktinai, ieškodamas aktyviųjų, kuriuos sudomintų mano pasiūlymas su manimi inicijuoti naują Vikimedija lietuvių dalyvių grupę. Ketinau savo pasiūlymą pavešinti forume, kai mano idėja taps konkretesne. Todėl jei Jūs nuspręsite, kad aš nesu tinkamas atstovas reprezentuoti Lietuvą, aš nenusivilsiu. Norėjau tik paaiškinti, kad būtų Jums suprantama, dėl ko aš išvis užpretendavau. Ir apsidžiaugčiau, jei galėčiau prisidėti. --Vogone (aptarimas) 23:25, 14 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
Actually, I don't see why there should be so much emphasis on "representing Lithuanian Wikipedia".
If that meeting had some sort of power to give orders to us or do something like adopting resolutions in our name, sure, it would make a difference to us, then we would care who gets to represent us.
But if you are only going to have fun talking about Wikipedia (and maybe learn something new, make some friends etc.), why should any of us who are not going to participate care about who is going to participate?
Especially given that it does look like in this case you do not have more volunteers than you can afford. --Martynas Patasius (aptarimas) 03:31, 15 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
Exactly — neither this meeting, nor establishing an user group will force any user who just wants to keep writing articles about his/her favourite topic to change his or her ways. What can change is that users who are interested in organizing events (article/photo contests, etit-a-thons, working with students, museums, archives, people from other countries) will have more opportunities, support and training available. --Papuass (aptarimas) 10:18, 15 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
  • Today is the last day of the registration. Nomad has already registered, and only Vogone applied for the second place from Lithuania. Despite reminders here and on talk pages, nobody else accepted, and several people refused. It was never told that people have to represent Lithuanian Wikipedia, we are looking for people to represent Lithuanian community which is not exactly the same. As a result, I would suggest to approve that the two delegates from Lithuanian community will be Nomad and Vogone. Vogone, can you please quickly fill in the registration form at m:Wikimedia CEE Meeting 2018/Participants? Thanks — NickK (aptarimas) 23:18, 15 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
    Thank you a lot. I have just submitted my registration. --Vogone (aptarimas) 01:55, 16 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)

We confirm that we have received registrations of Nomad and Vogone who will represent the Lithuanian community at CEE Meeting 2018 in Lviv. Thank you for your participation! — NickK (aptarimas) 12:36, 16 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)

Wikimedia Northern Europe Meeting 2018 (5-7 October 2018)[redaguoti vikitekstą]

A week before CEE Meeting, there will be Wikimedia Northern Europe Meeting 2018 in Stockholm, Sweden. This meeting has a goal to find how people in Nordic countries can work toghter. The Baltics have the benefit of belonging to both Nordic and CEE regions, so we are all invited. There is an opportunity for up to 5 people from Lithuanian community to attend the meeting (flight costs, accommodation and food is covered).

I will be there with people from Latvian community, as well as people from Estonia. There is no deadline yet and it will be fine if less that 5 Lithuanians come.

Please consider joining us. --Papuass (aptarimas) 10:27, 15 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)

Thank you, I am going to keep an eye on this page. I'd love to participate here too but I am not sure if I'll be able, yet. --Nomad (aptarimas) 13:16, 15 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
Deadline for decision to attend is August 26. --Papuass (aptarimas) 23:27, 16 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
Pinging the same people Audriusa, Creative, Dirgela, E rulez, Homo ergaster, Hugo.arg, Italas, JonasS, MHz`as, Nomad, Powermelon, SQORP, Vaidila, Vilensija, Vogone, Zygimantus — are you interested in attending the meeting in Stockholm? --Papuass (aptarimas) 12:04, 20 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
Unfortunately, I already have other plans for that weekend. --Vogone (aptarimas) 15:06, 20 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
I have no opportunities. --SQORP (aptarimas) 12:54, 20 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
Hi, I probably won't be able to make it.Zygimantus (aptarimas) 13:43, 20 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)

EU Copyright Reform Update[redaguoti vikitekstą]

As you might already know, there is currently a copyright reform going on in the European Union, which will affect Wikipedia and other free knowledge projects. In July, the European Parliament debated a proposal that would have been harmful for freedom of expression and collaboration online. Many Wikimedia organisations and communities took action in June and July to oppose it and contributed to the rejection of this version of the proposal.

After its summer break, the European Parliament will vote on new amendments to the European Commission’s original proposal on 12 September. Members of the European Parliament can submit such new amendments by 5 September. The European Wikimedia organisations, members of the Free Knowledge Advocacy Group EU, and the Wikimedia Foundation are working on making sure amendments that protect and grow free knowledge will be on the table. These include a new approach to Article 13, but also safeguarding the public domain, freedom of panorama and user generated content.

Over the coming weeks, it will be important for Wikimedia to promote our vision of a copyright framework that helps us share the sum of all knowledge online. Should your community wish to engage in further public policy actions around this we would greatly appreciate if you coordinate with us to make sure our message is coherent across countries. We want to promote sensible copyright rules that advance access to information and knowledge instead merely stopping a bad proposal.

You can help by translating and sharing information materials in your language, sending an opinion piece to media in your country, contacting MEPs from your region with suggestions to support positive amendments, or participating in events in Brussels and Strasbourg (on 6 and 11 September, tbc).

We will provide updates soon about the community activities. In addition, we will share information and guidance on important amendments to the copyright proposal in due time. --Dimi z (aptarimas) 15:41, 20 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)

I'm not jumping on any bandwagon before I am confident I understand the issue at hand very well, and in this particular case I am not so sure I understand the alleged dangers. For instance the article you provided starts with A proposed new copyright package in the European Union is a threat to our fundamental right to freely share information which sounds more like a scare tactics than a genuine assessment of the law, for instance one may argue people dont have any fundamental right to share information that does not belong to them. And when I get such scare tactics instead of impartial analysis of the proposed law, I get very suspicious very fast. The fact that most of your long text describes how we should promote your vision instead of why we should do it, does not help either.
I've been using internet since probably '96 if not earlier, and during that time I witnessed quite a few new proposed laws that were going to destroy internet very soontm and campaigns against them. The last one being Net Neutrality revoke in USA. But the internet is still here, Wikipedia is still here, people still use it, people still share everything and I mean everything on internet, life goes on. One thing that never changes is that all sorts of interest groups always try to frame proposals they don't like in very bad, exaggerated ways, with hopes of attracting lots of young idealistic people to their cause. And I can't say I am sure this case is any different. But I may be wrong. --Nomad (aptarimas) 01:14, 21 rugpjūčio 2018 (EEST)
