Beta feature: advanced filters and more options for Watchlists, starting September 5[redigera | redigera wikitext]



Sorry to write in English. Hjälp till att översätta till ditt språk!

As you may already know, the Global Collaboration team has created a Beta feature. This feature is on your wiki since few months: "Nya filter för redigeringsgranskning". You can activate it in your Beta preferences.

What is this feature again?

This feature improves Special:RecentChanges and Special:RecentChangesLinked. It adds new features that ease vandalism tracking and support of newcomers:

  • Filtering - filter recent changes with easy-to-use and powerful filters combinations, including filtering by namespace or tagged edits.
  • Highlighting - add a colored background to the different changes you are monitoring. It helps quick identification of changes that matter to you.
  • Bookmarking to keep your favorite configurations of filters ready to be used.
  • Quality and Intent Filters - those filters use ORES predictions. They identify real vandalism or good faith intent contributions that need help.

You can know more about this project by visiting the quick tour help page.

What's new?

On September 5, the Beta feature will have a new option. Watchlists will have all features available now on the Beta Recent Changes improvements.

If you have already activated the Beta feature "Nya filter för redigeringsgranskning", you have no action to take. If you haven't activated the Beta feature "Nya filter för redigeringsgranskning" and you want to try the filters on Watchlists, please go to your Beta preferences on September 6. It will not be possible to try the filters only on Recent Changes or only on Watchlist.

Please also note that later in September, some changes will happen on Recent Changes. We will release some features at the moment available in Beta as default features. This will impact all users, but we will provide an option to opt-out. I'll recontact you with a more precise schedule and all the details very soon.

You can ping me if you have questions.

Draft strategy direction. Version #2[redigera | redigera wikitext]

In 2017, we initiated a broad discussion to form a strategic direction that will unite and inspire Wikimedians. This direction will be the foundation on which we will build clear plans and set priorities. More than 80 communities and groups discussed and gave feedback[strategy 1][strategy 2][strategy 3]. We researched readers and consulted more than 150 experts[strategy 4]. We looked at future trends that will affect our mission, and gathered feedback from partners and donors.

A group of community volunteers and representatives from the strategy team synthesized this feedback into an early version of the strategic direction that the broader movement can review and discuss.

The second version of the direction is ready. Again, please read, share, and discuss on the talk page on Meta. Based on your feedback, the drafting group will refine and finalize the direction.

RfC regarding "Interlinking of accounts involved with paid editing to decrease impersonation"[redigera | redigera wikitext]

There is currently a RfC open on Meta regarding "requiring those involved with paid editing on Wikipedia to link on their user page to all other active accounts through which they advertise paid Wikipedia editing business."

Note this is to apply to Wikipedia and not necessarily other sister projects, this is only to apply to websites where people are specifically advertising that they will edit Wikipedia for pay and not any other personal, professional, or social media accounts a person may have.

Please comment on meta. Thanks. Send on behalf of User:Doc James.

MediaWiki message delivery (diskussion) 17 september 2017 kl. 23.06 (CEST)

Förslaget har ett massivt stöd trots att det är oklart formulerat. Det verkar som om saken diskuterats länge på en-wp. Jag är förundrad att förslagsställaren Doc James (som är väldigt erfaren) inte brytt sig om att beakta motargumenten redan då han formulerade förslaget. Han borde rimligtvis ha kunnat förutse flera av dem.
Det är väldigt frustrerande att omröstningar startas om illa beredda förslag, och kan gå igenom då de inte röstas ner på basen av dålig beredning. I och för sig betyder RfC "request for comments", men då man har rubriker för "support" och "oppose" är det ju klart att man inte vill ha kommentarer utan röster. Eventuella omröstningar borde vänta tills man blivit av med alla brister i formuleringen, så att omröstningen skulle handla om själva sakfrågan och man senare vet vad man kommit överens om. Jag har svårt att förstå hur en sådan här okultur kunnat få sådant fotfäste. --LPfi (diskussion) 18 september 2017 kl. 10.15 (CEST)
Instämmer och också är detta en mycket tråkig trend (frånenwp) att ge allt fler regler, vi borde ju i stället ha färre och lita på sunt förnuft.Yger (diskussion) 18 september 2017 kl. 10.22 (CEST)
I det här fallet verkar det som regler snarare än sunt förnuft är vad som behövs (om det upplevda problemet är ett problem och lösningen en lösning), men den här arbetsgången, att man börjar rösta innan man funderat igenom problematiken och diskuterat möjliga lösningar, är inte ändamålsenlig. Det är också mycket problematiskt att omröstningarna blir så många att man inte hinner läsa diskussionerna, istället för att ett mindre antal intresserade och initierade skulle diskutera fram ett förslag, som sedan kan accepteras i konsensus, med omröstning om man så vill, men rimligen har man tagit hänsyn till kritiska röster så att motståndarna blir få. --LPfi (diskussion) 18 september 2017 kl. 13.17 (CEST)

Wikimedia Movement Strategy phase 2, and a goodbye[redigera | redigera wikitext]


As phase one of the Wikimedia movement strategy process nears its close with the strategic direction being finalized, my contractor role as a coordinator is ending too. I am returning to my normal role as a volunteer (Tar Lócesilion) and wanted to thank you all for your participation in the process.

The strategic direction should be finalized on Meta late this weekend. The planning and designing of phase 2 of the strategy process will start in November. The next phase will again offer many opportunities to participate and discuss the future of our movement, and will focus on roles, resources, and responsibilities.

Tack, SGrabarczuk (WMF) (diskussion) 30 september 2017 kl. 14.47 (CEST)

presenting the project Wikipedia Cultural Diversity Observatory[redigera | redigera wikitext]

Hello everyone,

My name is Marc Miquel and I am a researcher from Barcelona (Universitat Pompeu Fabra). 

While I was doing my PhD I studied whether an identity-based motivation could be important for editor participation and I analyzed content representing the editors' cultural context in 40 Wikipedia language editions.

Few months later, I propose creating the Wikipedia Cultural Diversity Observatory in order to raise awareness on Wikipedia’s current state of cultural diversity, providing datasets, visualizations and statistics, and pointing out solutions to improve intercultural coverage.

I am presenting this project to a grant and I expect that the site becomes a useful tool to help communities create more multicultural encyclopaedias and bridge the content culture gap that exists across language editions (one particular type of systemic bias).

For instance, this would help spreading cultural content local to Swedish Wikipedia into the rest of Wikipedia language editions, and viceversa, make Swedish Wikipedia much more multicultural.

Here is the link of the project proposal:

I am searching for a volunteer in each language community: I still need one for the Swedish Wikipedia. If you feel like it, you can contact me at: marcmiquel *at*

I need a contact in your every community who can (1) check the quality of the cultural context article list I generate to be imported-exported to other language editions, (2) test the interface/data visualizations in their language, and (3) communicate the existance of the tool/site when ready to the language community and especially to those editors involved in projects which could use it or be aligned with it.

Communicating it might not be a lot of work, but it will surely have a greater impact if done in native language! :).

If you like the project, I'd ask you to endorse it. In any case, I will appreciate any feedback, comments,... Thanks in advance for your time!

Best regards,

--Marcmiquel (diskussion) 9 oktober 2017 kl. 15.28 (CEST)

WikiScienceCompetition 2017[redigera | redigera wikitext]

Hi! Wiki Science Competition has started, yesterday a banner appeared on enwiki in USA making it officially "global", as far as I know (too many information to handle). Sitenotices have appeared for sure in Spain, Austria, Russian Federation and Ukraine, and Italy will be join very soon with a massive national campaign.

As a member of the academic committee I did my best to reduce the gap between countries both in the composition of the juries and now in the outreach. I did inform many platforms (enwiki, eswiki, frwiki) during the preparation of the event, now I am informing all national institutions, associations and federations of science and technology I can contact, especially those located in countries without national juries (so, also in Sweden and Finland) and I am posting notes on LinkedIn groups everyday... and so on and so on. That's why I am here.

We are preparing banners for many countries (I can write something short in Swedish, you can see it) but on meta they say it is not wise to use them, so there is a banner there if you want to use it on svwiki directly for few days. In the end you are very "centered" wiki, and the banner is not country-specific in your case. Plus, one of the organizer is actually paid by a Swedish university, and one of the juror works there, that's why I naively tough of you before other countries.

Otherwise, if you have social media and you want to inform your friends and colleagues, the twitter hashtags are #WSC2017, #WikiScience2017, #WikiScience and here you can find a list of images from 2015 as an example. Next time I'll visit my family in Sweden I will offer you a coffee.

Thank you in advance and whatever you do (join, inform, ignore) have fun!--Alexmar983 (diskussion) 3 november 2017 kl. 15.14 (CET)

Någon som kortfattat kan förklara vad detta handlar om? /NH 3 november 2017 kl. 21.51 (CET) --Larske (diskussion) 3 november 2017 kl. 22.05 (CET)
I left my message in English because I did the same last year at the village pump. The request is: it would be nice to have a sitenotice to inform sv-N people about WSC. We prepared an international competition with an international jury but despite that it seems that we can't get access easily to inform everyone. They treat us like WLM, which is not totally correct, because the academia is a much more integrated network. So now this category and this category are empty after 5 days. Young researchers cannot access a competition where they could win a prize. And I am sending tons of emails everywhere to compensate an "unnatural" unbalance. Cui prodest? Nobody. So we can get few days of banner? I can find some alternative way to enter countries like Switzerland or Germany and reach people but it will takes weeks before Scandinavia start to be integrated. If I don't get any banner, and the emails don't work... than I think I will write to national newspapers, I don't know. I have to try them all, it is a little bit my responsability. My family is kinda half Swedish, I am therefore quite sorry really about this situation.--Alexmar983 (diskussion) 5 november 2017 kl. 09.34 (CET)
Messages in English are welcome, as per the top of the page (and the top of Wikipedia:Bybrunnen). As for the banner, we already have the "Asian Month" scheduled for november, and banners should be kept at a sensible minimum. For other editors I can point out there is a discussion at the metawiki: meta:CentralNotice/Request#Wiki Science Competition 2017 (November 1-30). There is also a calendar for upcoming banners: meta:CentralNotice/Calendar. /NH 7 november 2017 kl. 11.12 (CET)
The meta link is also in my first message, right? In any case, while for Asian countries is ok to have banner after November (because they close on the 15th of December), most of Europe is supposed to be ready by the 30th of November. Considering that after one or two week almost everyone would have seen the Asian banner except a limited amount of newcommers, replacing the established message for few days will probably not affect its visibility.
BTW, our competition was supposed to be in November-December since 2015, we didn't arrive last minute. We were informed about the Asian month quite late, maybe chapters involved in both should have paid more attention. it's just that while the Asian month is not relevant on many wikis, we are potentially related to all the wikis, so it takes much more time to reach all of them. Statistically, certain areas come later. We don't expect all countries to be the same level in the end, we just want to avoid some countries remain at zero. And to avoid that if we don't get few days of banner we can only send dozens of mail to the academia, try to start some effect on social media, or contact the media. I am not a fan of the banner, I always assumed we could have get for few days, enough to start to inform motivated and competent users.--Alexmar983 (diskussion) 8 november 2017 kl. 01.46 (CET)
