Prenumeruoti[prenumeruoti]Datos[redaguoti vikitekstą]

Norėjau pasidomėti kodėl visos datos yra kreipiamos į metus/datas. Suprantu kai 2021 straipsnyje yra minimos tarkim 2020 m. vasaros olimpinės žaidynės, tai ir tame straipsnyje logiška 2021 naudoti. Bet kam dėti nuorodas į 2021 mažesnės reikšmės straipsniuose, jei jie neminimi 2021? Wolfmartyn (aptarimas) 22:22, 29 rugpjūčio 2021 (EEST)Reply[atsakyti]

Čia iš tradicijos taip. Visiškai sutinku, tikrai nėra prasmės. --Obivan Kenobi (aptarimas) 22:39, 29 rugpjūčio 2021 (EEST)Reply[atsakyti]
Na taip, tokia tradicija. Aš asmeniškai dėlioju tik dėl nuoseklumo, nes man keistai atrodytų, jei pusė straipsnių turėtų tokias nuorodas, kita pusė – ne. Tačiau dedu ne visur, parenku reikšmingesnes pagal savo nuožiūrą (gimimo/mirties data, įkūrimas ir t.t.). Iš esmės jau rašiau kažkur, kad pritarčiau „delinkinimui“, jei bendruomenė prieitų prie tokio klausimo, ar tai būtų visiškas delinkinimas kaip pas anglus, ar kažkas kaip pas vokiečius, kai asmenybių straipsniuose apibrėžime nurodomos mirties/gimimo datos ir pan...--Nestea (aptarimas) 15:46, 30 rugpjūčio 2021 (EEST)Reply[atsakyti]
Na, kaip tik pats Wolfmartyn to šiais metais jau buvo klausęs, matyt, pamiršo... Iš techninės pusės tai botui čia nesunki užduotis, nors keitimų prireiktų daug. --Homo ergaster (aptarimas) 20:19, 30 rugpjūčio 2021 (EEST)Reply[atsakyti]
Tvarkingumui nereikia kad arba visi žodžiai straipsnyje turėtų nuorodas, arba kad nė vienas neturėtu. Manau kad datos nėra išimtis ir specialių taisyklių joms nereikia. Greičiausia nėra prasmės negalvojant dėtį nuorodą į metų straipsnį kur nėra jokios papildomos informacijos nurodančio straipsnio tema. Botais trint gal ir neverta, nes prarasim nuorodas ir iš įvykių kurie metų straipsniuose aprašyti. AudriusA (aptarimas) 21:49, 30 rugpjūčio 2021 (EEST)Reply[atsakyti]
Manau, Nesteos variantas dėti tik svarbiausiose vietose yra priimtinas ir atitinka Wolfmartyno mintį dėl nuorodų tik tais atvejais, jei tas įvykis datos/metų straipsnyje aprašytas. Panašiai, turbūt, kaip pas vokiečius. --Obivan Kenobi (aptarimas) 22:21, 30 rugpjūčio 2021 (EEST)Reply[atsakyti]
Apskritai su tuom nuorodom slidus reikalas - kiek žmonių, tiek nuomonių ir skirtingų rašymo stilių... Būna, kas deda daugiau nuorodų, kas mažiau, kas, pvz., visai raudonų nuorodų nededa, kas - per daug. Pasitaiko ir tokių dalykų kaip: susiliejančios nuorodos, vietoje vienos, konkretesnės (banginių medžioklė; 19921996 m. Seimo narys), arba italas Giuseppe Garibaldi (18071882); arba akivaizdžiame žodžių junginyje nuoroda į vieną žodį; besikartojančios nuorodos, dėl kurių margumyno darosi sunku skaityti (Hainuvkos apskritis, istorijos skiltis) ir t. t. ir pan. Kai kada pratrinu tas perteklines (neretai ir pasikartojančias) nuorodas, bet visko ir visur turbūt nesutikrinsi. Kažkokios tvarkos gal ir norėtųsi, bet turbūt per mažai žmogiškųjų resursų tam, net ir pagelbstint botams, o kas liečia datų nuorodas - tai čia toks daug diskutavimo reikalaujantis klausimas... Metų straipsniuose galima būtų praignoruoti, tokia vienintelė išimtis ir yra padaryta pas anglus (Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/Cleanbot, Wikipedia:Full-date unlinking bot).--Nestea (aptarimas) 14:23, 3 rugsėjo 2021 (EEST)Reply[atsakyti]
Sutinku su Nestea dėl nuoseklumo - bet straipsnio ribose, t.y. jei straipsnyje jau daug datų, ir visos [[2021]], tai dedu ir aš. Patinka ir {{data|2021|8|31}} šablonas, kuris automatiškai sudaro nuorodas į metus bei mėnesį+dieną. Bet į naujai sukurtus straipsnius datų nuorodų nededu. Tuo tarpu kiti kolegos uoliai ištaiso mano datas į linkus :) Tai vat ir norėjau vėl pasidomėti, kuom vadovaujamės.Wolfmartyn (aptarimas) 23:32, 31 rugpjūčio 2021 (EEST)Reply[atsakyti]

Prenumeruoti[prenumeruoti]Ieškome pagalbos WikiGap renginiui[redaguoti vikitekstą]

Laba diena,

Švedijos ambasada Lietuvoje bei Baltojo Kaspino Festivalis organizuoja WikiGap renginį (http://www.swemfa.se/wikigap/). Ieškome vieno ar kelių lietuviškosios Vikipedijos administratorių / senbuvių, kurie galėtų renginio dalyviams pristatyti Vikipedijai tinkamų straipsnių ruošimo ir įkėlimo taisykles.

Pats renginys vyks lapkričio 30 dieną, jo metu kelsime jau paruoštus straipsnius, todėl dalyvius apmokyti norime gerokai anksčiau. Apmokymas vyktų online būdu, mes įsivaizduojame, kad truktų apie 30-60 minučių.

Renginys bei pats festivalis yra nekomerciniai, nemokami renginiai, todėl ieškome pagalbos savanoriškais pagrindais.

Jei Jūs arba kas nors, ką pažįstate, norėtų mums padėti, prašau susisiekti su manim.

Dėkui, Justina

Sveiki. Būtų gerai, kad dalyviai atidžiai susipažintų su tuo, kas pateikta Pagalba:Turinys. Beje, kokios tematikos straipsnius ketinama kurti? Ar bus verčiama iš kitų vikipedijų? --Homo ergaster (aptarimas) 11:12, 19 spalio 2021 (EEST)Reply[atsakyti]
Dėkoju už patarimus, būtent Pagalbos skyreliu daugiausiai ir naudojamės. Deja, neradome kas mums padėtų iš senbuvių, todėl kol kas "apsimokome" patys.
Straipsnius kursime apie asmenybes - žymias Lietuvos moteris, todėl tikriausiai nebus verčiama, nes tiesiog nėra apie jas straipsnių kitomis kalbomis.
Stengiamės orientuotis į kokybę, ne kiekybę. Prašome patarti, jei pastebėsite, kad kažką darome ne taip, dėkoju. JustinaBa (aptarimas) 01:16, 29 lapkričio 2021 (EET)Reply[atsakyti]

Prenumeruoti[prenumeruoti]Valstybių vėliavų straipsniai[redaguoti vikitekstą]

Kaip vėliavų straipsnių pradinis sakinys turėtų būti rašomas? Dabar straipsnių pradiniai sakiniai ypač skiriasi, tai manau, kad būtų gerai juos standartizuoti. Dažniausiai straipsnis patenka į vieną iš trijų variantų:

  • XYZ vėliava – vienas iš oficialių XYZ valstybės simbolių.
  • XYZ vėliava – trispalvė, sudaryta iš trijų juostų.
  • XYZ vėliava buvo įteisinta 1234 m. sausio 1 d.

Kuris labiausiai tinka? Etoza (aptarimas) 23:12, 23 spalio 2021 (EEST)Reply[atsakyti]

Standartizuoti išties reikėtų. Turėtų būti pirmasis variantas (kadangi tai aiškus apibrėžimas). Ta pati problema dažna ir valstybių herbų straipsniuose. --Homo ergaster (aptarimas) 23:28, 23 spalio 2021 (EEST)Reply[atsakyti]

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

The Board of Trustees is preparing a call for feedback about the upcoming Board Elections, from January 7 - February 10, 2022.

While details will be finalized the week before the call, we have confirmed at least two questions that will be asked during this call for feedback:

  • What is the best way to ensure fair representation of emerging communities among the Board?
  • What involvement should candidates have during the election?

While additional questions may be added, the Movement Strategy and Governance team wants to provide time for community members and affiliates to consider and prepare ideas on the confirmed questions before the call opens. We apologize for not having a complete list of questions at this time. The list of questions should only grow by one or two questions. The intention is to not overwhelm the community with requests, but provide notice and welcome feedback on these important questions.

Do you want to help organize local conversation during this Call?

Contact the Movement Strategy and Governance team on Meta, on Telegram, or via email at msg(_AT_)wikimedia.org.

Reach out if you have any questions or concerns. The Movement Strategy and Governance team will be minimally staffed until January 3. Please excuse any delayed response during this time. We also recognize some community members and affiliates are offline during the December holidays. We apologize if our message has reached you while you are on holiday.

Prenumeruoti[prenumeruoti]Updates on the Universal Code of Conduct Enforcement Guidelines Review[redaguoti vikitekstą]

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

Hello everyone,

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees released a statement on the ratification process for the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement Guidelines.

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire movement. The UCoC and the Enforcement Guidelines were written by volunteer-staff drafting committees following community consultations.

The revised guidelines were published 24 January 2022 as a proposed way to apply the policy across the movement. There is a list of changes made to the guidelines after the enforcement draft guidelines review. Comments about the guidelines can be shared on the Enforcement Guidelines talk page on Meta-wiki.

To help to understand the guidelines and process, the Movement Strategy and Governance (MSG) team will be hosting Conversation Hours on 4 February 2022 at 15:00 UTC, 25 February 2022 at 12:00 UTC, and 4 March 2022 at 15:00 UTC. Join the conversation hours to speak with the UCoC project team and drafting committee members about the updated guidelines and voting process.

The timeline is available on Meta-wiki. The voting period is March 7 to 21. All eligible voters will have an opportunity to support or oppose the adoption of the Enforcement guidelines, and share why. See the voting information page for more details.

Many participants from across the movement have provided valuable input in these ongoing conversations. The UCoC and MSG teams want to thank the Drafting Committee and the community members for their contributions to this process.

Sincerely,

Movement Strategy and Governance

A vote in SecurePoll from 7 to 21 March 2022 is scheduled as part of the ratification process for the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement guidelines. Eligible voters are invited to answer a poll question and share comments. Read voter information and eligibility details. During the poll, voters will be asked if they support the enforcement of the Universal Code of Conduct based on the proposed guidelines.

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire movement. The revised enforcement guidelines were published 24 January 2022 as a proposed way to apply the policy across the movement. A Wikimedia Foundation Board statement calls for a ratification process where eligible voters will have an opportunity to support or oppose the adoption of the UCoC Enforcement guidelines in a vote. Wikimedians are invited to translate and share important information. For more information about the UCoC, please see the project page and frequently asked questions on Meta-wiki.

There are events scheduled to learn more and discuss:

  • A community panel recorded on 18 February 2022 shares perspectives from small- and medium-sized community participants.
  • The Movement Strategy and Governance (MSG) team is hosting Conversation Hours on 4 March 2022 at 15:00 UTC. Please sign-up to interact with the project team and the drafting committee about the updated enforcement guidelines and the ratification process. See the Conversation Hour summaries for notes from 4 February 2022 and 25 February 2022.

You can comment on Meta-wiki talk pages in any language. You may also contact either team by email: msg(_AT_)wikimedia.org or ucocproject(_AT_)wikimedia.org

PrenumeruotiInvitation to Hubs event: Global Conversation on 2022-03-12 at 13:00 UTC[redaguoti vikitekstą]

Hello!

The Movement Strategy and Governance team of the Wikimedia Foundation would like to invite you to the next event about "Regional and Thematic Hubs". The Wikimedia Movement is in the process of understanding what Regional and Thematic Hubs should be. Our workshop in November was a good start (read the report), but we're not finished yet.

Over the last weeks we conducted about 16 interviews with groups working on establishing a Hub in their context (see Hubs Dialogue). These interviews informed a report that will serve as a foundation for discussion on March 12. The report is planned to be published on March 9.

The event will take place on March 12, 13:00 to 16:00 UTC on Zoom. Interpretation will be provided in French, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, and Portuguese. Registration is open, and will close on March 10. Anyone interested in the topic is invited to join us. More information on the event on Meta-wiki.

Next steps: Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) and UCoC Enforcement Guidelines[redaguoti vikitekstą]

After reviewing vote results and accompanying comments, the Community Affairs Committee decided to launch a fresh round of community consultations. After that, the refined text of the Guidelines will be put for another vote.

The comments have shown that community members unequivocally support creating a safe and welcoming culture that stops hostile and toxic behaviour, supports victims of such actions, and encourages good-faith people to be productive on the Wikimedia projects. While the results did show that support for the UCoC Guidelines exceeded the required 50%+1 vote, the comments highlighted that further revisions would be required to have strong community support to follow through with enforcement.

Therefore the Committee instructed the Foundation to:

Conduct another round of community consultations, and put the newly-refined Guidelines for a community vote.

The WMF team will seek feedback on four topics that stood out among the voter comments. You can learn more about the four topics and the Committee's findings on this Meta page.

Prenumeruoti[prenumeruoti]Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election 2022 - Call for Election Volunteers[redaguoti vikitekstą]

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

The Movement Strategy and Governance team is looking for community members to serve as election volunteers in the upcoming Board of Trustees election.

The idea of the Election Volunteer Program came up during the 2021 Wikimedia Board of Trustees Election. This program turned out to be successful. With the help of Election Volunteers we were able to increase outreach and participation in the election by 1,753 voters over 2017. Overall turnout was 10.13%, 1.1 percentage points more, and 214 wikis were represented in the election.

There were a total of 74 wikis that did not participate in 2017 that produced voters in the 2021 election. Can you help increase the participation even more?

Election volunteers will help in the following areas:

  • Translate short messages and announce the ongoing election process in community channels
  • Optional: Monitor community channels for community comments and questions

Volunteers should:

  • Maintain the friendly space policy during conversations and events
  • Present the guidelines and voting information to the community in a neutral manner

Do you want to be an election volunteer and ensure your community is represented in the vote? Sign up here to receive updates. You can use the talk page for questions about translation.

Hello all,

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) project team has completed the analysis of the feedback accompanying the ratification vote on the Universal Code of Conduct Enforcement Guidelines.

Following the completion of the UCoC Enforcement Guidelines Draft in 2022, the guidelines were voted on by the Wikimedian community. Voters cast votes from 137 communities, with the top 9 communities being: English, German, French, Russian, Polish, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Italian Wikipedias, and Meta-wiki.

Those voting had the opportunity to provide comments on the contents of the Draft document. 658 participants left comments. 77% of the comments are written in English. Voters wrote comments in 24 languages with the largest numbers in English (508), German (34), Japanese (28), French (25), and Russian (12).

A report will be sent to the Revision Drafting Committee who will refine the enforcement guidelines based on the community feedback received from the recently concluded vote. A public version of the report is published on Meta-wiki here. The report is available in translated versions on Meta-wiki. Prašome padėti išversti į jūsų kalbą

Again, we thank all who participated in the vote and discussions. We invite everyone to contribute during the next community discussions. More information about the Universal Code of Conduct and Enforcement Guidelines can be found on Meta-wiki.

Prenumeruoti[prenumeruoti]Revisions to the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement Guidelines[redaguoti vikitekstą]

Hello all,

We'd like to provide an update on the work on the Enforcement Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct. After the conclusion of the community vote on the guidelines in March, the Community Affairs committee (CAC) of the Board asked that several areas of the guidelines be reviewed for improvements before the Board does its final review. These areas were identified based on community discussions and comments provided during the vote. The CAC also requested review of the controversial Note in 3.1 of the UCoC itself.

Once more, a big thank you to all who voted, especially to all who left constructive feedback and comments! The project team is working with the Board to establish a timeline for this work, and will communicate this next month.

Members of the two prior UCoC Drafting Committees have generously offered their time to help shape improvements to the Guidelines. You can read more about them and their work here, as well as read summaries of their weekly meetings in 2022.

Wikimedians have provided many valuable comments together with the vote and in other conversations. Given the size and diversity of the Wikimedia community, there are even more voices out there who can give ideas on how to improve the enforcement guidelines and add even more valuable ideas to the process. To help the Revisions committee identify improvements, input on several questions for the committee’s review is requested. Visit the Meta-wiki pages (Enforcement Guidelines revision discussions, Policy text revision discussions) to get your ideas to the Committee - it is very important that viewpoints are heard from different communities before the Committee begins drafting revision proposals.

Prenumeruoti[prenumeruoti]Enabling Section Translation: a new mobile translation experience[redaguoti vikitekstą]

Sveiki Lithuanian Wikipedians!

Apologies as this message is not in Lithuanian language, Prašome padėti išversti į jūsų kalbą.

The WMF Language team is pleased to let you know that we will like to enable the Section translation tool in Lithuanian Wikipedia. For this, our team will love you to read about the tool and test it so you can:

  • Give us your feedback
  • Ask us questions
  • Tell us how to improve it.

Below is background information about Section translation, why we have chosen your community, and how to test it.

Background information

Content Translation has been a successful tool for editors to create content in their language. More than one million articles have been created across all languages since the tool was released in 2015. The Wikimedia Foundation Language team has improved the translation experience further with the Section Translation. The WMF Language team enabled the early version of the tool in February in Bengali Wikipedia. Through their feedback, the tool was improved and ready for your community to test and help us with feedback to make it better.

Section Translation extends the capabilities of Content Translation to support mobile devices. On mobile, the tool will:

  • Guide you to translate one section at a time in order to expand existing articles or create new ones.
  • Make it easy to transfer knowledge across languages anytime from your mobile device.

Lithuanian Wikipedia seems an ideal candidate to enjoy this new tool since data shows significant mobile editing activity.

We plan to enable the tool on Lithuanian Wikipedia in the coming weeks if there are no objections from your community. After it is enabled, we’ll monitor the content created with the tool and process all the feedback. In any case, feel free to raise any concerns or questions you may already have in any of the following formats:

Try the tool

Before the enablement, you can try the current implementation of the tool in our testing instance. Once it is enabled on Lithuanian Wikipedia, you’ll have access to https://lt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:ContentTranslation with your mobile device. You can select an article to translate, and machine translation will be provided as a starting point for editors to improve.

Provide feedback

Please provide feedback about Section translation in any of the formats you are most comfortable with. We want to hear about your impressions on:

  • The tool
  • What you think about our plans to enable it
  • Your ideas for improving the tool.

Thanks, and we look forward to your feedback and questions.

Section Translation tool enabled in Lithuanian Wikipedia[redaguoti vikitekstą]

Hello Friends!

The Language team is pleased to let you know that the Section Translation tool is now enabled in Lithuanian Wikipedia. It means you can translate real content one section at a time using your mobile devices with ease.

Now you can also start translating an article on your mobile device right when you notice it is missing in Lithuanian. From a Wikipedia article in any language, switch languages and search for lietuvių. If the article does not exist, an option to translate it will appear, as shown in the image below.

Image of the entry point

Content created with the tool will be marked with the “sectiontranslation” tag for the community to review. We’ll monitor the content created, but we are very interested in hearing about your experience using the tool and reviewing the content created with it.

So, enjoy the tool and provide feedback on improving it.

Thank you!

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

Hi all,

Community members in the 2022 Board of Trustees election are invited to propose statements to use in the Election Compass.

An Election Compass is a tool to help voters select the candidates that best align with their beliefs and views. The community members will propose statements for the candidates to answer using a Lickert scale (agree/neutral/disagree). The candidates’ answers to the statements will be loaded into the Election Compass tool. Voters will use the tool by entering in their answer to the statements (agree/disagree/neutral). The results will show the candidates that best align with the voter’s beliefs and views.

Here is the timeline for the Election Compass:

  • July 8 - 20: Community members propose statements for the Election Compass
  • July 21 - 22: Elections Committee reviews statements for clarity and removes off-topic statements
  • July 23 - August 1: Volunteers vote on the statements
  • August 2 - 4: Elections Committee selects the top 15 statements
  • August 5 - 12: candidates align themselves with the statements
  • August 15: The Election Compass opens for voters to use to help guide their voting decision

The Elections Committee will select the top 15 statements at the beginning of August. The Elections Committee will oversee the process, supported by the Movement Strategy and Governance team. MSG will check that the questions are clear, there are no duplicates, no typos, and so on.

Best,

Movement Strategy and Governance

Thank you to the community members who put themselves forward as candidates for the Board of Trustees. Considering joining the Board of Trustees is no small decision. The time and dedication candidates have shown to this point speaks to their commitment to this movement. Congratulations to those candidates who have been selected. A great amount of appreciation and gratitude for those candidates not selected. Please continue to share your leadership with Wikimedia.

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

Hi all,

Volunteers in the 2022 Board of Trustees election are invited to vote for statements to use in the Election Compass. You can vote for the statements you would like to see included in the Election Compass on Meta-wiki.

An Election Compass is a tool to help voters select the candidates that best align with their beliefs and views. The community members will propose statements for the candidates to answer using a Lickert scale (agree/neutral/disagree). The candidates’ answers to the statements will be loaded into the Election Compass tool. Voters will use the tool by entering in their answer to the statements (agree/disagree/neutral). The results will show the candidates that best align with the voter’s beliefs and views.

Here is the timeline for the Election Compass:

  • July 8 - 20: Volunteers propose statements for the Election Compass
  • July 21 - 22: Elections Committee reviews statements for clarity and removes off-topic statements
  • July 23 - August 1: Volunteers vote on the statements
  • August 2 - 4: Elections Committee selects the top 15 statements
  • August 5 - 12: candidates align themselves with the statements
  • August 15: The Election Compass opens for voters to use to help guide their voting decision

The Elections Committee will select the top 15 statements at the beginning of August

Best,

Movement Strategy and Governance

Prenumeruoti[prenumeruoti]Central and Easter Europe Meeting 2022[redaguoti vikitekstą]

Hello!

Lithuanian community can send up to two representatives to a regional meeting in Ohrid, North Macedonia in mid-October. Travel and accommodation costs will be covered by the organizers.

As there is no formally established organization representing Lithuanian Wikimedia community, it would be enough to apply here in the forum and other community members could approve or object.

The prerequisites would be:

  1. Some past activity in Lithuanian Wikimedia projects
  2. Ability to communicate in English
  3. It is expected that you spend your time at the conference and report your experience back to the community.

From a personal experience I can suggest using this opportunity as it has been a motivational boost for my own activities in Wikimedia projects. Papuass (aptarimas) 15:20, 29 liepos 2022 (EEST)Reply[atsakyti]

Извиняюсь, что обращаюсь к Вам по-русски, но для Вас сделаю очень важное объявление. С 5 по 15 августа 2022 года в Русской Википедии состоится Литовская неделя. Она посвящена написанию статей о Литве, которых нет на русском языке, а также улучшению уже существующих статей. Тех, кто хорошо владеет русским языком, приглашаю к участию!
