Encontro de wikimedistas en Galicia[edit]

Boas a todos. Estamos preparando un encontro de colaboradores de tódolos proxectos da Fundación Wikimedia en Galicia para tratar distintos temas. A data non está determinada pero podería ser entre o Entroido e o mes de Marzal, en principio en Santiago. Tedes tódala información necesaria na páxina de meta e podedes contactar comigo na miña páxina de usuario para calquer aclaración. Queremos facer unha reunión para coñecer a outros colaboradores dos proxectos da Fundación e tratar entre todos algúns temas comúns como as posibilidades de facer proxectos fóra das pedias, o tratamento das pedias nos medios de comunicación, a creación e organización do capítulo de Wikimedia España e outras cousas que se propoñan. Animo a tódolos interesados a visitar a páxina, apuntarvos e dar as vosas opinións. Saúdos a todos, --Elisardojm (talk) 00:04, 2 February 2010 (UTC)

Categorías de graffitis[edit]

Boas ! Temos dúas categorías para os grafittis de Galicia. Faleino con Lmbuga aquí. No caso coutros teñen que opinar e que necesitese discutilo o caso (ainda que sexa un só usuario) traerei o asunto aquí. En todo caso, ainda que ninguén opine, notarei nesta sección o resultado. Saúdos a todos Elvire (talk) 17:31, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Resultado : Semella que agora en commons os nomes das categorías referentes a Galicia rematan con "....Galicia (Spain) (hai outra Galicia que non esta na péninsula ibérica). Polo tanto os ficheiros das dúas categorías estan na única que queda : Category:Graffiti in Galicia (Spain). Elvire (talk) 17:29, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

Call for image filter referendum[edit]

The Wikimedia Foundation, at the direction of the Board of Trustees, will be holding a vote to determine whether members of the community support the creation and usage of an opt-in personal image filter, which would allow readers to voluntarily screen particular types of images strictly for their own account.

Further details and educational materials will be available shortly. The referendum is scheduled for 12-27 August, 2011, and will be conducted on servers hosted by a neutral third party. Referendum details, officials, voting requirements, and supporting materials will be posted at Meta:Image filter referendum shortly.

Sorry for delivering you a message in English. Please help translate the pages on the referendum on Meta and join the translators mailing list.

Cambiar nome de archivo[edit]

Ola! empecei a colaborar fai pouco e ando un pouco verde. Intenteino na axuda pero dime que a páxina foi borrada,entón ¿sabedes si para cambiar de nome os ficheiro solicitase a súa eliminación ou pode facerse de outra forma? Por exemplo nestes dous: File:Torre da Candaira - O Saviñao - 3.jpg.jpg cando so debería ter unha sola extensión. File:Igrexa de San Pedro de Bembibre - Taboada (Lugo) - Campanario entrada.jpg , cando debería poñer cruceiro de entrada --Loischantada (talk) 22:44, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Si, podes facelo de forma doada usando a plantilla {{rename|novo nome.jpg|razón para o novo nome}}, iso fai que vaia a unha categoría especial que é revisada polos bibliotecarios que van cambiando os nomes cando o cambio é correcto. Saúdos, --Elisardojm (talk) 23:16, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Terms of Use update[edit]

I apologize that you are receiving this message in English. Please help translate it.

Hello,

The Wikimedia Foundation is discussing changes to its Terms of Use. The discussion can be found at Talk:Terms of use. Everyone is invited to join in. Because the new version of Terms of use is not in final form, we are not able to present official translations of it. Volunteers are welcome to translate it, as German volunteers have done at m:Terms of use/de, but we ask that you note at the top that the translation is unofficial and may become outdated as the English version is changed.

Announcing Wikipedia 1.19 beta[edit]

Wikimedia Foundation is getting ready to push out 1.19 to all the WMF-hosted wikis. As we finish wrapping up our code review, you can test the new version right now on beta.wmflabs.org. For more information, please read the release notes or the start of the final announcement.

The following are the areas that you will probably be most interested in:

  • Faster loading of javascript files makes dependency tracking more important.
  • New common*.css files usable by skins instead of having to copy piles of generic styles from MonoBook or Vector's css.
  • The default user signature now contains a talk link in addition to the user link.
  • Searching blocked usernames in block log is now clearer.
  • Better timezone recognition in user preferences.
  • Improved diff readability for colorblind people.
  • The interwiki links table can now be accessed also when the interwiki cache is used (used in the API and the Interwiki extension).
  • More gender support (for instance in logs and user lists).
  • Language converter improved, e.g. it now works depending on the page content language.
  • Time and number-formatting magic words also now depend on the page content language.
  • Bidirectional support further improved after 1.18.

Report any problems on the labs beta wiki and we'll work to address them before they software is released to the production wikis.

Note that this cluster does have SUL but it is not integrated with SUL in production, so you'll need to create another account. You should avoid using the same password as you use here. — Global message delivery 00:00, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Dúbida[edit]

Para crear artigos cada un ponse no seu idioma e xa está sen poñer as iniciais do idioma, como Commons:Benvido en galego e Commons:Welcome en inglés. Pero hai outras que existe o problema de que a frase en galego é igual a de castelán, como Commons:Categorías. Entón como lle chamamos páxina en galego? Ex:Commons:Categorías (gl) --Vivaelcelta {discusión  · contributions} 21:10, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

MediaWiki 1.19[edit]

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.) The Wikimedia Foundation is planning to upgrade MediaWiki (the software powering this wiki) to its latest version this month. You can help to test it before it is enabled, to avoid disruption and breakage. More information is available in the full announcement. Thank you for your understanding.

Carga de ficheiros, ¿qué pasou co formulario orixinal?[edit]

Saúdos.

¿Alguén sabe qué sucedeu cos formularios de carga de ficheiros? Refírome en particular a Commons:Upload/gl e similares (non me refiro ó Asistente de cargas). Antes aparecía un formulario bastante amigable no que ir cubrindo os diferentes campos. Agora aparece un formulario moito máis reducido cunha caixa na que aparece o código en bruto a cubrir que antes se cubría co formulario completo, cunha caixa por cada campo. Deixalo así paréceme unha idea pésima, en lugar de facilita-lo traballo de carga fanno máis incómodo. Xa, existe o "Asistente de carga", probeino unhas cantas veces e non quero nin volver a cheiralo.

Un saúdo.--Xosema (talk) 00:02, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Refíreste a este?: Special:Upload
Está ligado na parte inferior da páxina que dixeches de Commons:Upload/gl, onde di:
--. HombreDHojalata.talk 08:47, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
Ummm, xa detectei donde está o problema. A url a donde che leva "É unha obra propia" de Commons:Upload/gl é
http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Upload&uselang=ownwork&uploadformstyle=plain
cando a url que apunta ó formulario "amigable" é
http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Upload&uselang=ownwork
É decir, a coletilla que fai que o formulario apareza da maneira menos "amigable" é &uploadformstyle=plain. Non sei por qué aparece e non atopei unha razón concreta para que o faga. Pulsando varias veces sobre o mesmo enlace a veces aparece unha url e a veces outra. En fin, polo menos agora sei donde está a orixe do problema.

Update on IPv6[edit]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it, as well as the full version of this announcement on Meta)

The Wikimedia Foundation is planning to do limited testing of IPv6 on June 2-3. If there are not too many problems, we may fully enable IPv6 on World IPv6 day (June 6), and keep it enabled.

What this means for your project:

  • At least on June 2-3, 2012, you may see a small number of edits from IPv6 addresses, which are in the form "2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334". See e.g. w:en:IPv6 address. These addresses should behave like any other IP address: You can leave messages on their talk pages; you can track their contributions; you can block them. (See the full version of this announcement for notes on range blocks.)
  • In the mid term, some user scripts and tools will need to be adapted for IPv6.
  • We suspect that IPv6 usage is going to be very low initially, meaning that abuse should be manageable, and we will assist in the monitoring of the situation.

Read the full version of this announcement on how to test the behavior of IPv6 with various tools and how to leave bug reports, and to find a fuller analysis of the implications of the IPv6 migration.

2011 Picture of the Year competition[edit]

македонскиnorsk bokmålpolski

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2011 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We are interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year 2011. Any user registered at Commons or a Wikimedia wiki SUL-related to Commons with more than 75 edits before 1 April 2012 (UTC) is welcome to vote and, of course everyone is welcome to view!

Detailed information about the contest can be found at the introductory page.

About 600 of the best of Wikimedia Common's photos, animations, movies and graphics were chosen –by the international Wikimedia Commons community– out of 12 million files during 2011 and are now called Featured Pictures.

From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons Features Pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories.

We regret that you receive this message in English; we intended to use banners to notify you in your native language but there was both, human and technical resistance.

See you on Commons! --Picture of the Year 2011 Committee 18:07, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Help decide about more than $10 million of Wikimedia donations in the coming year[edit]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it)

Hi,

As many of you are aware, the Wikimedia Board of Trustees recently initiated important changes in the way that money is being distributed within the Wikimedia movement. As part of this, a new community-led "Funds Dissemination Committee" (FDC) is currently being set up. Already in 2012-13, its recommendations will guide the decisions about the distribution of over 10 million US dollars among the Foundation, chapters and other eligible entities.

Now, seven capable, knowledgeable and trustworthy community members are sought to volunteer on the initial Funds Dissemination Committee. It is expected to take up its work in September. In addition, a community member is sought to be the Ombudsperson for the FDC process. If you are interested in joining the committee, read the call for volunteers. Nominations are planned to close on August 15.

Request for Comment: Legal Fees Assistance Program[edit]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

I apologize for addressing you in English. I would be grateful if you could translate this message into your language.

The Wikimedia Foundation is conducting a request for comment on a proposed program that could provide legal assistance to users in specific support roles who are named in a legal complaint as a defendant because of those roles. We wanted to be sure that your community was aware of this discussion and would have a chance to participate in that discussion.

If this page is not the best place to publicize this request for comment, please help spread the word to those who may be interested in participating. (If you'd like to help translating the "request for comment", program policy or other pages into your language and don't know how the translation system works, please come by my user talk page at m:User talk:Mdennis (WMF). I'll be happy to assist or to connect you with a volunteer who can assist.)

Wikidata is getting close to a first roll-out[edit]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.)

As some of you might already have heard Wikimedia Deutschland is working on a new Wikimedia project. It is called m:Wikidata. The goal of Wikidata is to become a central data repository for the Wikipedias, its sister projects and the world. In the future it will hold data like the number of inhabitants of a country, the date of birth of a famous person or the length of a river. These can then be used in all Wikimedia projects and outside of them.

The project is divided into three phases and "we are getting close to roll-out the first phase". The phases are:

  1. language links in the Wikipedias (making it possible to store the links between the language editions of an article just once in Wikidata instead of in each linked article)
  2. infoboxes (making it possible to store the data that is currently in infoboxes in one central place and share the data)
  3. lists (making it possible to create lists and similar things based on queries to Wikidata so they update automatically when new data is added or modified)

It'd be great if you could join us, test the demo version, provide feedback and take part in the development of Wikidata. You can find all the relevant information including an FAQ and sign-up links for our on-wiki newsletter on the Wikidata page on Meta.

For further discussions please use this talk page (if you are uncomfortable writing in English you can also write in your native language there) or point me to the place where your discussion is happening so I can answer there.

Upcoming software changes - please report any problems[edit]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it)

All Wikimedia wikis - including this one - will soon be upgraded with new and possibly disruptive code. This process starts today and finishes on October 24 (see the upgrade schedule & code details).

Please watch for problems with:

  • revision diffs
  • templates
  • CSS and JavaScript pages (like user scripts)
  • bots
  • PDF export
  • images, video, and sound, especially scaling sizes
  • the CologneBlue skin

If you notice any problems, please report problems at our defect tracker site. You can test for possible problems at test2.wikipedia.org and mediawiki.org, which have already been updated.

Thanks! With your help we can find problems fast and get them fixed faster.

Fundraising localization: volunteers from outside the USA needed[edit]

Please translate for your local community

Hello All,

The Wikimedia Foundation's Fundraising team have begun our 'User Experience' project, with the goal of understanding the donation experience in different countries outside the USA and enhancing the localization of our donation pages. I am searching for volunteers to spend 30 minutes on a Skype chat with me, reviewing their own country's donation pages. It will be done on a 'usability' format (I will ask you to read the text and go through the donation flow) and will be asking your feedback in the meanwhile.

The only pre-requisite is for the volunteer to actually live in the country and to have access to at least one donation method that we offer for that country (mainly credit/debit card, but also real-time banking like IDEAL, E-wallets, etc...) so we can do a live test and see if the donation goes through. All volunteers will be reimbursed of the donations that eventually succeed (and they will be low amounts, like 1-2 dollars)

By helping us you are actually helping thousands of people to support our mission of free knowledge across the world. Please sing up and help us with our 'User Experience' project! :) If you are interested (or know of anyone who could be) please email ppena@wikimedia.org. All countries needed (excepting USA)!

Thanks!

Thank you to everyone who volunteered last year on the Wikimedia fundraising 'User Experience' project.

If you haven't heard of it yet, the 'User Experience' project has the goal of understanding the donation experience in different countries (outside the USA) and enhancing the localization of our donation pages.

Wikimedia sites to move to primary data center in Ashburn, Virginia. Read-only mode expected.[edit]

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.) Next week, the Wikimedia Foundation will transition its main technical operations to a new data center in Ashburn, Virginia, USA. This is intended to improve the technical performance and reliability of all Wikimedia sites, including this wiki. There will be some times when the site will be in read-only mode, and there may be full outages; the current target windows for the migration are January 22nd, 23rd and 24th, 2013, from 17:00 to 01:00 UTC (see other timezones on timeanddate.com). More information is available in the full announcement.

If you would like to stay informed of future technical upgrades, consider becoming a Tech ambassador and joining the ambassadors mailing list. You will be able to help your fellow Wikimedians have a voice in technical discussions and be notified of important decisions.

Convert complex templates to Lua to make them faster and more powerful[edit]

(Please consider translating this message for the benefit of your fellow Wikimedians)

Greetings. As you might have seen on the Wikimedia tech blog or the tech ambassadors list, a new functionality called "Lua" is being enabled on all Wikimedia sites today. Lua is a scripting language that enables you to write faster and more powerful MediaWiki templates.

If you have questions about how to convert existing templates to Lua (or how to create new ones), we'll be holding two support sessions on IRC next week: one on Wednesday (for Oceania, Asia & America) and one on Friday (for Europe, Africa & America); see m:IRC office hours for the details. If you can't make it, you can also get help at mw:Talk:Lua scripting.

If you'd like to learn about this kind of events earlier in advance, consider becoming a Tech ambassador by subscribing to the mailing list. You will also be able to help your fellow Wikimedians have a voice in technical discussions and be notified of important decisions.

Hello!

There is a new request for comment on Meta-Wiki concerning the removal of administrative rights from long-term inactive Wikimedians. Generally, this proposal from stewards would apply to wikis without an administrators' review process.

We are also compiling a list of projects with procedures for removing inactive administrators on the talk page of the request for comment. Feel free to add your project(s) to the list if you have a policy on administrator inactivity.

All input is appreciated. The discussion may close as soon as 21 May 2013 (2013-05-21), but this will be extended if needed.

[en] Change to wiki account system and account renaming[edit]

Some accounts will soon be renamed due to a technical change that the developer team at Wikimedia are making. More details on Meta.

[en] Change to section edit links[edit]

The default position of the "edit" link in page section headers is going to change soon. The "edit" link will be positioned adjacent to the page header text rather than floating opposite it.

Section edit links will be to the immediate right of section titles, instead of on the far right. If you're an editor of one of the wikis which already implemented this change, nothing will substantially change for you; however, scripts and gadgets depending on the previous implementation of section edit links will have to be adjusted to continue working; however, nothing else should break even if they are not updated in time.

Detailed information and a timeline is available on meta.

Ideas to do this all the way to 2009 at least. It is often difficult to track which of several potential section edit links on the far right is associated with the correct section, and many readers and anonymous or new editors may even be failing to notice section edit links at all, since they read section titles, which are far away from the links.

Boas Eskio, primeiro unha nota, tes que lembrarte de asinar os teus comentarios nas páxinas de conversa. Agora preciso algo máis de información para poder axudarte, que é o PCLN? Saúdos, --Elisardojm (talk) 17:43, 3 May 2013 (UTC)


Boas, desculpa que non asinara antes. E desculpa tamén se estou a dar a resposta no lugar no que non corresponde, mais aínda non me aclaro moi ben. O PCLN foi o Partido Comunista de Liberación Nacional. Partido que, xunto con Galicia Ceibe-OLN, pasou a formar parte da FPG e que xa non existen. Un saúdo

--eskio (talk) 17:50, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Ah, xa o atopei, o Partido Comunista de Liberación Nacional. Ben, como ese partido foi fundado no 1986 non é posible que os seus logos estén no dominio público, por outra banda non atopei ningunha imaxe do logotipo e non che podo dicir exactamente, pero se é un logotipo con formas sinxelas, é dicir principalmente xeométricas, e tipos de letras "clásicos" si se podería subir. Se ten cousas máis complicadas habería que ver. O que podes facer é subilo e dámoslle un vistazo, se vale aí queda, se non vale bórrase e non pasa nada. Terías que poñer que o autor é o PCLN e logo cando o cargues co asistente escolle a licenza que queras porque non vale ningunha das que trae, tes que modificar o ficheiro cando esté cargado e poñerlle na licenza {{PD-textlogo}} {{PD-shape}} {{Trademarked}}. Se tes algún problema podes avisarnos e fágoo eu mesmamente. Terías que poñelo na categoría de Politics of Galicia (Spain).
Mentras eu escribía isto ti xa me respondiches :). Non te preocupes de nada, o da firma só cho comentaba para que lle foses collendo o tranquillo. Saúdos, --Elisardojm (talk) 18:08, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
Xa está subido! http://gl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Partido_Comunista_de_Liberaci%C3%B3n_Nacional Sabes aliñalo co texto? Un saúdo!--eskio (talk) 18:28, 3 May 2013 (UTC)
Púxeno na caixa de información, penso que así queda ben. Saúdos, --Elisardojm (talk) 21:08, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Feedback wanted on Commons brochure draft[edit]

I've been working on a "Welcome to Commons" brochure, and community feedback was extremely helpful. We now have a draft of the designed version, so please share any thoughts you have on how to make it better. The main target audience is newcomers who are learning about Commons for the first time.

Commons brochure draft, 2013-06-06, tentatively titled "Illustrating Wikipedia: A Guide to Contributing Content to Wikimedia Commons"

A few things to note:

  • The current title is Illustrating Wikipedia: A Guide to Contributing Content to Wikimedia Commons, but we're open to better suggestions.
  • Neither the design nor the content are final at this point, so if you want to propose significant changes, now is the time.
  • Many minor design and text changes will happen in the next revision, but if you notice anything that needs to be adjusted, please comment.
  • There is simply placeholder content for the section on adding images using the Visual Editor; once screenshots of the interface are stable, that content will be added in.

You can discuss the draft at Commons talk:Welcome to Commons brochure. Thanks!--Sage Ross (WMF) (talk) 14:31, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Pywikipedia is migrating to git[edit]

Hello, Sorry for English but It's very important for bot operators so I hope someone translates this. Pywikipedia is migrating to Git so after July 26, SVN checkouts won't be updated If you're using Pywikipedia you have to switch to git, otherwise you will use out-dated framework and your bot might not work properly. There is a manual for doing that and a blog post explaining about this change in non-technical language. If you have question feel free to ask in mw:Manual talk:Pywikipediabot/Gerrit, mailing list, or in the IRC channel. Best Amir (via Global message delivery). 12:59, 23 July 2013 (UTC)

HTTPS for users with an account[edit]

Greetings. Starting on August 21 (tomorrow), all users with an account will be using HTTPS to access Wikimedia sites. HTTPS brings better security and improves your privacy. More information is available at m:HTTPS.

If HTTPS causes problems for you, tell us on bugzilla, on IRC (in the #wikimedia-operations channel) or on meta. If you can't use the other methods, you can also send an e-mail to https@wikimedia.org.

Notifications[edit]

Notifications inform you of new activity that affects you -- and let you take quick action.

(This message is in English, please translate as needed)

Greetings!

Notifications will inform users about new activity that affects them on this wiki in a unified way: for example, this new tool will let you know when you have new talk page messages, edit reverts, mentions or links -- and is designed to augment (rather than replace) the watchlist. The Wikimedia Foundation's editor engagement team developed this tool (code-named 'Echo') earlier this year, to help users contribute more productively to MediaWiki projects.

We're now getting ready to bring Notifications to almost all other Wikimedia sites, and are aiming for a 22 October deployment, as outlined in this release plan. It is important that notifications is translated for all of the languages we serve.

There are three major points of translation needed to be either done or checked:

Please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions or comments about this new tool. For more information, visit this project hub and this help page. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 18:15, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

Introducting Beta Features[edit]

(Apologies for writing in English. Please translate if necessary)

We would like to let you know about Beta Features, a new program from the Wikimedia Foundation that lets you try out new features before they are released for everyone.

Think of it as a digital laboratory where community members can preview upcoming software and give feedback to help improve them. This special preference page lets designers and engineers experiment with new features on a broad scale, but in a way that's not disruptive.

Beta Features is now ready for testing on MediaWiki.org. It will also be released on Wikimedia Commons and MetaWiki this Thursday, 7 November. Based on test results, the plan is to release it on all wikis worldwide on 21 November, 2013.

Here are the first features you can test this week:

Would you like to try out Beta Features now? After you log in on MediaWiki.org, a small 'Beta' link will appear next to your 'Preferences'. Click on it to see features you can test, check the ones you want, then click 'Save'. Learn more on the Beta Features page.

After you've tested Beta Features, please let the developers know what you think on this discussion page -- or report any bugs here on Bugzilla. You're also welcome to join this IRC office hours chat on Friday, 8 November at 18:30 UTC.

Beta Features was developed by the Wikimedia Foundation's Design, Multimedia and VisualEditor teams. Along with other developers, they will be adding new features to this experimental program every few weeks. They are very grateful to all the community members who helped create this project — and look forward to many more productive collaborations in the future.

Enjoy, and don't forget to let developers know what you think! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 19:36, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Call for comments on draft trademark policy[edit]

Universal Language Selector will be enabled by default again on this wiki by 21 February 2014[edit]

On January 21 2014 the MediaWiki extension Universal Language Selector (ULS) was disabled on this wiki. A new preference was added for logged-in users to turn on ULS. This was done to prevent slow loading of pages due to ULS webfonts, a behaviour that had been observed by the Wikimedia Technical Operations team on some wikis.

We are now ready to enable ULS again. The temporary preference to enable ULS will be removed. A new checkbox has been added to the Language Panel to enable/disable font delivery. This will be unchecked by default for this wiki, but can be selected at any time by the users to enable webfonts. This is an interim solution while we improve the feature of webfonts delivery.

You can read the announcement and the development plan for more information. Apologies for writing this message only in English. Thank you. Runa

Amendment to the Terms of Use[edit]

Manuel Rial ou Manolo Rial[edit]

Acabo de crear a categoría Category:Manuel Rial. Tras creala, encontreime conque existía Category:Manolo Rial. Unha delas, se é o mesmo escultor, debe ser unha redirección. ¿Alguén sabe cal é o seu nome no DNI?--Miguel Bugallo (Lmbuga) 12:35, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

Do you have an idea for a project that could improve your community? Individual Engagement Grants from the Wikimedia Foundation help support individuals and small teams to organize experiments for 6 months. You can get funding to try out your idea for online community organizing, outreach, tool-building, or research to help make Wikimedia Commons better. In March, we’re looking for new project proposals.

Examples of past Individual Engagement Grant projects:

Proposals are due by 31 March 2014. There are a number of ways to get involved!

Hope to have your participation,

Proposed optional changes to Terms of Use amendment[edit]

Hello all, in response to some community comments in the discussion on the amendment to the Terms of Use on undisclosed paid editing, we have prepared two optional changes. Please read about these optional changes on Meta wiki and share your comments. If you can (and this is a non english project), please translate this announcement. Thanks!

Changes to the default site typography coming soon[edit]

This week, the typography on Wikimedia sites will be updated for all readers and editors who use the default "Vector" skin. This change will involve new serif fonts for some headings, small tweaks to body content fonts, text size, text color, and spacing between elements. The schedule is:

  • April 1st: non-Wikipedia projects will see this change live
  • April 3rd: Wikipedias will see this change live

This change is very similar to the "Typography Update" Beta Feature that has been available on Wikimedia projects since November 2013. After several rounds of testing and with feedback from the community, this Beta Feature will be disabled and successful aspects enabled in the default site appearance. Users who are logged in may still choose to use another skin, or alter their personal CSS, if they prefer a different appearance. Local common CSS styles will also apply as normal, for issues with local styles and scripts that impact all users.

Asuntos de dereitos e unha consulta sobre categorías[edit]

Boas. Teño dúas dúbidas.

  • Primeiro, unha consulta sobre dereitos e autorías: quero empregar imaxes tomadas deste visor da Xunta de Galicia. Penso que, ó igual que o SIGPAC, debera ser adecuado para empregar en Commons, pero non estou seguro. Penso que toda a información producida polo Centro de Información Xeográfica de España (antigo Instituto Xeográfico Nacional) agora é libre por unha lei recente, pero non estou seguro de todo. De todos modos, tendo en conta este aviso da web da Xunta supoño que recoñecendo a autoría todo podería ser incluido en Commmons. Estou equivocado? Alguén me pode orientar?
  • Segundo: alguén me pode dar unhas directrices rápidas sobre a mellor maneira de categorizar imaxes en Commons? Mellor en galego ou en inglés? Ou son intercambiables? Onde podo ver a árbore de categorías? Estou moi perdido ó respecto (na Galipedia un pouco tamén, pero iso é outro asunto).
  • Terceiro: unha terceira dúbida que se me vén á cabeza. Con esta imaxe preparei estoutra. Tiven que cortala e pensei que non era conveniente cargar "outra versión" senón subir outra imaxe diferente, porque había unha modificación sustancial. Penso que citei a orixe da imaxe e a autoría correctamente. Se fixen algo mal, agradezo que mo comuniquedes ou que me comuniquedes a mellor maneira de facelo.

Non sei se é habitual deixar este tipo de comentarios aquí ou é mellor deixalos en "Galipedia (imaxes)". A quen conteste a todo isto ou a unha parte, moitísimas grazas.--AArizaga (talk) 12:25, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

  • Primeiro: Asemella que a licenza non é axeitada para este proxecto. Ten en consideración que aquí tódolos contidos teñen que permitir calquera uso, mesmo obras derivadas e uso comercial, e na páxina que ligas pon "Reprodución: A reprodución dos contidos desta web está autorizada sempre que se cite a súa orixe ou se solicite autorización. O usuario comprométese a usar esta web exclusivamente para uso persoal.
  • Segundo: A categorización en Wikimedia Commons ten que ser en inglés.
  • Terceiro: Fixéchelo ben. Perfecto. --. HombreDHojalata.talk 17:17, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
