Be a Wikimedia fundraising "User Experience" volunteer![rediger]

Thank you to everyone who volunteered last year on the Wikimedia fundraising 'User Experience' project. We have talked to many different people in different countries and their feedback has helped us immensely in restructuring our pages. 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.

I am (still) searching for volunteers to spend some time 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 very 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. If you are interested (or know of anyone who could be) please email All countries needed (excepting USA)!!

I teksten Kriton, har jeg, uten hell, forsøkt å få til transklusjon av sluttnoter. Dvs. jeg gir sluttnoten et navn (tallet som er angitt i teksten, skrevet med bokstaver) og jeg oppgir det samme navnet på siden for sluttnoter. Dette fungerer bra i transklusjonen for den første siden med fotnoter, men deretter går det i stå. Klarer noen andre å finne feilen? (Skal ikke se bort ifra at jeg har skrevet noe feil i koden.)

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

(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 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.

Thank you for your help and your understanding.

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

(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.

Der er innkommet et nytt ønske om kommentarer på Meta-Wiki vedrørende fjerning av rettigheter for langtidspassive Wikimedianere. Forslaget fra stewardene dreier seg generelt mest om wikier uten prosesser med periodisk administrator-gjennomgang.

Vi kompilerer også en liste over prosjekter med prosedyrer for fjerning av passive administratorer på diskusjonssiden til siden med kommentarønsker. Legg gjerne til ditt/dine prosjekter på listen dersom der er en policy for fjerning av inaktive administratorer.

Alle innspill vil bli satt pris på. En sikter mot avsluttet diskusjon 23. mai 2013, men denne tiden kan forlenges dersom det trengs.

På forhånd takk! Billinghurst (thanks to all the translators!) 24. apr 2013 kl. 07:09 (CEST)

Wikisource vision development: News April 2013[rediger]


I apologize if this message is not in your language. Please help translate it.

Dear Wikisourcerors, it has been almost a month since we have started with the Elaborate Wikisource strategic vision grant and we would like to share some news with you:

And that's it for now! During the month of May, we (Aubrey and Micru) would like to organize at least one Skype or Google Hangout meeting for the users of each one of the 10 biggest wikisources plus another one or two for the other languages (depending on interest). We want to know your opinion on what Wikisource should become in the next years.

Thanks! --Micru and Aubrey 27. apr 2013 kl. 02:59 (CEST)

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

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[rediger]

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.

X!'s Edit Counter[rediger]

Universal Language Selector will be enabled on 2013-07-09[rediger]


Jeg har merket at på et eller annet tidspunkt er noe skjedd med hvordan innholdet transkluderes som lenker frem og tilbake i header-en. Før var det slik at det var bare lenkene fra 'innhold'sboksen som ble transkludert. Nå er det slik at også informasjonen i 'tittel'-feltet settes som det aller første i innholdslisten. Se f.eks. Christofer Columbus og Amerikas Opdagelse: Lenken i header-en går til 'innhold' (den første lenken i innhold på indekssiden), mens tittelen er det samme som i tittelfeltet. Betyr dette at vi nå skal slutte å legge inn en lenke til tittel/innholdssiden på indekssiden, siden den nå transkluderes fra tittelfeltet? Jeg bryr meg ikke hverken den ene eller den andre veien, men dette kan bety at vi må fjerne en rekke lenker fra indekssidene, slik at vi unngår at forsidene lenker til seg selv.

Pywikipedia is migrating to git[rediger]

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). 23. jul 2013 kl. 15:37 (CEST)

Högupplöst PDF från[rediger]

När jag nu besöker, hittar jag bara PDF-filer i låg upplösning (cirka 100-150 dpi). Brukade det inte finnas en valmöjlighet för högupplöst PDF i den tidigare utformningen av websiten? Finns det någon möjlighet att lasta ned högupplösta PDF:er därifrån? --LA2 (diskusjon) 5. sep 2013 kl. 00:15 (CEST)

PDF'er med høy oppløsning er nok ikke tilgjengelig, men det går an å laste ned side-bildene som vises i nettleseren i max oppløsning. Høyre-klikk på bildet, velg 'vis i ny tab' (el. tilsv.), og endre url'en slik at du får høyest oppløsning og fullt utsnitt. Med bittelitt fingerferdighet lager man et skript som laster ned samtlige bilder i en bok, og så er det bare å sy dem sammen til en PDF. Jeg har ofte gjort dette for å kunne kjøre OCR på frie bøker fra NB (Deres egen OCR er dessverre heller så som så...) Lars n. (diskusjon)

For store djvu-filer?[rediger]

Jeg har endelig kommet i gang med å laste opp mine ferdig korrekturleste og nesten-wiki formaterte bøker til Wikikilden. Den korrigerte teksten embeddes i en djvu-fil som lastes opp. Djvu-filen lages ved å konvertere Nasjonalbibliotekets pdf-filer rett-frem. Disse filene blir på 30-60MB. Går dette greit, eller burde jeg forsøke å gjøre filen mindre ved å redusere billedkvaliteten?

Foreløpig er Riverton, Nansen, og Bernt Lie lastet opp. Jeg har illustrasjoner ligggende til alle bøkene og vil laste dem opp etter hvert. Lars n. (diskusjon) 8. sep 2013 kl. 11:04 (CEST)



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

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


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) 4. okt. 2013 kl. 21:02 (CEST)[svar]

Introducting Beta Features[rediger]

(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 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, 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) 5. nov. 2013 kl. 21:26 (CET)[svar]

Reminder: Wikidata coming on January 14th[rediger]

(This is a message to all Wikisource editions. Sorry for writing in English. I hope someone can translate this for me on the non-English editions.)


I am Wikidata's product manager. If you are unfamilar with Wikidata please have a look at d:Q3107329 for example.

As you might already have heard Wikisource will be the fourth project supported by Wikidata after Wikipedia, Wikivoyage and Commons. We are currently planning this for January 14th. From this point on you will be able to handle the links between projects in Wikidata. This means you will only have to maintain them once instead of having them duplicated in every article. However fear not: the local interwiki links will still continue to work and they will overwrite what comes from Wikidata.

This is the first step of Wikidata supporting Wikisource. In a second step we will enable access to the actual data on Wikidata like biographical data about authors. I do not have a date for that yet however.

The planning is happening at d:Wikidata:Wikisource. We are still looking for some more ambassadors who can help during the process and make sure everything goes smoothly for you. Please add your name to the list at d:Wikidata:Wikisource if you're willing to do this.

If you have questions please also post them on the discussion page of d:Wikidata:Wikisource.
