Wikidata is here![rediger]

Hey everyone :)

As previously announced we have just enabled interwiki links via Wikidata for Wikisource. This means from now on you no longer have to maintain the links in the Wikitext but can maintain them together with the links for Wikipedia, Commons and Wikivoyage on Wikidata. You will still be able to keep them locally though if you want to. Local interwiki links will overwrite the ones from Wikidata. You do not yet have access to the other data on Wikidata like the date of birth of an author. That will come in a future deployment. I will let you know when I have a date for it.

If you have any questions d:Wikidata:Wikisource is a good first step. It also has a list of people familiar with both Wikisource and Wikidata who are able to help you out. That is also a good place for any issues or bugs you encounter.

I'm really excited to welcome you all to Wikidata! I hope it will become a great help for Wikisource.

Request for comment on Commons: Should Wikimedia support MP4 video?[rediger]

I apologize for this message being only in English. Please translate it if needed to help your community.

The Wikimedia Foundation's multimedia team seeks community guidance on a proposal to support the MP4 video format. This digital video standard is used widely around the world to record, edit and watch videos on mobile phones, desktop computers and home video devices. It is also known as H.264/MPEG-4 or AVC.

Supporting the MP4 format would make it much easier for our users to view and contribute video on Wikipedia and Wikimedia projects -- and video files could be offered in dual formats on our sites, so we could continue to support current open formats (WebM and Ogg Theora).

However, MP4 is a patent-encumbered format, and using a proprietary format would be a departure from our current practice of only supporting open formats on our sites -- even though the licenses appear to have acceptable legal terms, with only a small fee required.

We would appreciate your guidance on whether or not to support MP4. Our Request for Comments presents views both in favor and against MP4 support, based on opinions we’ve heard in our discussions with community and team members.

Please join this RfC -- and share your advice.

All users are welcome to participate, whether you are active on Commons, Wikipedia, other Wikimedia project -- or any site that uses content from our free media repository.

You are also welcome to join tomorrow's Office hours chat on IRC, this Thursday, January 16, at 19:00 UTC, if you would like to discuss this project with our team and other community members.

We look forward to a constructive discussion with you, so we can make a more informed decision together on this important topic. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 16. jan. 2014 kl. 07:47 (CET)[svar]

Access to data in Wikidata[rediger]

Hey :)

(Sorry for writing in English. I hope someone can translate this for me where necessary.)

Not long ago we enabled language links via Wikidata for Wikisource. This seems to have gone rather smoothly. Thanks to everyone who helped! But as you know this was only the start. What is actually more interesting is access to the data in Wikidata like the date of birth of an author or the year a book was published. We have planned this for February 25th (unless any issues arise). You will then be able to use the data in your articles. I hope this will open up a lot of new opportunities for you.

If you have any questions d:Wikidata:Wikisource is a good place to find help.

Frigör Bokhylla[rediger]

För en vecka sedan deltog jag i #hack4no, ett evenemang i Oslo arrangerat av Kulturrådet, där jag bland annat lärde mig om Nasjonalbibliotekets API. Som mitt tävlingsbidrag gjorde jag en sida i Prosjekt Runeberg som förtecknar de digitaliserade verk hos NB som är äldre än 1890, men ännu (felaktigt?) markerade som inte fria. Jag hoppas att ni vill hjälpa till att identifiera författare och ge feedback till NB om vilka verk som borde släppas fria. Här är ett exempel på sådan feedback. --LA2 (diskusjon) 14. feb. 2014 kl. 01:18 (CET)[svar]

När och varför dog Wikikilden?[rediger]

I de 50 dagar som gått sedan jul 2013, har inga sidor blivit korrekturlästa i no.wikisource. Projektet verkar nu helt dött. Vad hände? --LA2 (diskusjon) 14. feb. 2014 kl. 01:41 (CET)[svar]

Hei. Det er ikke helt dødt her enda, men det er nok riktig at aktiviteten har gått ned. Dessverre ser det ikke ut til at nye bidragsytere kommer til. Kåre-Olav (diskusjon) 8. mar. 2014 kl. 14:41 (CET)[svar]

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

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[rediger]

You can now access the data on Wikidata[rediger]

Hey folks,

We have just enabled data access to Wikidata for Wikisource (except old-wikisource). This means you can now access data like the date of birth of an author or the ISBN of a book. You can do this in two ways. The first one is a parser function. You can use it like {{#property:capital}} or {{#property:P36}}. The second one is Lua. The documentation for that is at mw:Extension:WikibaseClient/Lua

If you have any questions you will find help at d:Wikidata:Wikisource and its talk page.

I hope you'll use this to do some kick-ass things on Wikisource ;-)

Call for project ideas: funding is available for community experiments[rediger]

IEG key blue.png

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

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 Wikikilden 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[rediger]

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[rediger]

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.

Rett i muren[rediger]

Ok. Jeg har opprettet en konto, funnet ut at boken jeg ønsker å legge inn ikke eksisterer på Wikisource fra før, begynt å lese introduksjonssidene i den tro at jeg var et oppegående menneske med litt over gjennomsnittlige dataferdigheter, og gått rett i muren. For enten har jeg utviklet en akutt suboptimal evne for tekstforståelse, eller så er ikke introduksjonstekstene egnet til å hjelpe andre enn dem som kan dette systemet godt fra før. Jeg forsøker deretter å kikke litt rundt på andre ferdige bøker her på Wikisource for å se om jeg blir klokere ved å klikke på redigeringsfanene, men nei... Spørsmålene blir bare flere av det. Og ikke finner jeg svarene på introduksjonssidene. Det jeg etterlyser, er rett og slett en kort og grei tekst som sier noe om hvordan boken skal se ut i redigeringsvinduet I EN HELHET. Da hjelper det ikke at jeg på introduksjonssidene får informasjon om mange forskjellige elementer, for jeg vet jo ikke hvordan de skal virke sammen med hverandre. I min ungdom likte jeg å bygge modellfly i plast, og da fulgte det med en monteringsanvisning som viste hvordan bitene skulle limes sammen med hverandre. Jeg hadde neppe kommet noen vei hvis jeg kun hadde fått informasjon om den enkelte plastbit. Jeg skal ikke bruke utestemme her, men jeg hadde vært takknemlig om noen kunne vise meg en slik monteringsanvisning for Wikisource, altså en oversikt som loser meg gjennom punkt for punkt. Under "Grunnleggende fremgangsmåte" i "Legge inn tekster" heter det at jeg skal begynne med å legge inn topp-malen (uten at det sies noe om hvordan dette gjøres), jeg skal legge inn teksten under dette og formatere den slik jeg ønsker (dette kan jeg lese meg til på andre sider), og at jeg skal legge til en bunn-mal hvis teksten synes å være for lang til å synes i et vindu. Vel, jeg vet ikke hvordan jeg legger til en bunn-mal (når jeg klikker på bunn-malens link får jeg beskjed om at den uansett ikke skal brukes hvis jeg velger å bruke en eller annen pages-tag), og jeg vet heller ikke hva som menes med "for lang til å synes i et vindu". Så skal jeg avslutte med å lagre. Hva med resten av bokens tekst, da? Under "Avansert fremgangsmåte" kommer flere oppfordringer uten noen som helst forklaring på selve fremgangsmåtene. Så blir jeg sittende igjen med mange tanker om HVA som skal gjøres, men ingen informasjon om HVORDAN det skal gjøres, eller HVOR jeg skal lete for å finne informasjon om løsningene. Ja, jeg kunne sikkert funnet ut av alt dette ved å bruke veldig lang tid på å rote rundt på alle mulige og umulige sider her inne, men det var vel ikke DET som var hensikten med introduksjonssidene?

Hei og velkommen til Wikikilden. Du har rett i at hjelpesidene våre ikke er særlig brukervennlige for øyeblikket. Dette skyldes at det har vært ganske store tekniske forandringer siden de første hjelpesidene ble skrevet, og at det for tiden er så få brukere her at det ikke har vært kapasitet til å oppdatere dem. Kort fortalt bruker vi nå et eget system som heter «Proofreadpage», som brukes til å sammenstille bilder og korrekturlest tekst. Her kan du lese litt om dette systemet. Ellers har engelsk Wikisource mye bedre hjelpesider enn oss.
Jeg ser at du vil arbeide med Charles Gordon-boken, så jeg har hjulpet deg litt på vei. For det første har jeg lastet opp hele boken i én fil fra Internet Archive til Commons: File:Charles Gordon som Christen og Soldat.djvu. Deretter har jeg laget en såkalt indeks-side: Indeks:Charles Gordon som Christen og Soldat.djvu, som inneholder lenker til sidene som skal fylles med tekst. Her kan du sette inn teksten din på hver enkelt side. Hvis du trenger hjelp til maskinlesning av teksten (OCR) kan vi hjelpe deg med det også. Jeg har begynt litt på side 3 for å vise hvordan det gjøres. Etterhvert som du fyller inn teksten vil den dukke opp her.
Håper dette hjelper deg litt på vei. Jeg tror det beste er at du spør på denne siden hvis det er noe du lurer på, så får du svar ganske raskt. Kåre-Olav (diskusjon) 7. mai 2014 kl. 21:02 (CEST)[svar]

Wikisource meetup at Wikimania 2014[rediger]

Wikimania 2014 will be held in London this August and it will be a great opportunity to discuss how to use the recently created Wikisource Community User Group to coordinate and to better promote Wikisource. We would like to invite the participants of each Wikisource language community to showcase the projects has been working in the past year and, of course, learn from each other experiences. See you there? Sign up in the meeting page.

Media Viewer[rediger]

Greetings, my apologies for writing in English.

I wanted to let you know that Media Viewer will be released to this wiki in the coming weeks. Media Viewer allows readers of Wikimedia projects to have an enhanced view of files without having to visit the file page, but with more detail than a thumbnail. You can try Media Viewer out now by turning it on in your Beta Features. If you do not enjoy Media Viewer or if it interferes with your work after it is turned on you will be able to disable Media Viewer as well in your preferences. I invite you to share what you think about Media Viewer and how it can be made better in the future.

Thank you for your time. - Keegan (WMF) 23. mai 2014 kl. 23:29 (CEST)[svar]

Using only UploadWizard for uploads[rediger]

Wikimedia Commons logo

Hello! Sorry for writing in English. It was noted that on this wiki upload is not fully functional for users, who will experience a very difficult and/or illegal uploading. In fact, the licenses/copyright tags dropdown is empty, making it hard or impossible to comply with copyright requirements during upload itself.

Presumably, you don't have interest nor energies to have hundreds templates with the now required HTML, even less a local EDP. I propose to have

so that you can avoid local maintenance and all users can have a functioning, easy upload interface in their own language. All registered users can upload on Commons and existing files will not be affected.

All this will get done around 2014-07-03.

  1. If you disagree with the proposal, just remove your wiki from the list. Remember also to create MediaWiki:Licenses locally with any content (see a simple example), or uploads will be soon disabled anyway by MediaWiki itself (starting in version 1.24wmf11).
  2. To make the UploadWizard even better, please tell your experience and ideas on commons:Commons:Upload Wizard feedback.

Media Viewer is now live on this wiki[rediger]

Media Viewer lets you see images in larger size

Greetings— and sorry for writing in English, please translate if it will help your community,

The Wikimedia Foundation's Multimedia team is happy to announce that Media Viewer was just released on this site today.

Media Viewer displays images in larger size when you click on their thumbnails, to provide a better viewing experience. Users can now view images faster and more clearly, without having to jump to separate pages — and its user interface is more intuitive, offering easy access to full-resolution images and information, with links to the file repository for editing. The tool has been tested extensively across all Wikimedia wikis over the past six months as a Beta Feature and has been released to the largest Wikipedias, all language Wikisources, and the English Wikivoyage already.

If you do not like this feature, you can easily turn it off by clicking on "Disable Media Viewer" at the bottom of the screen, pulling up the information panel (or in your your preferences) whether you have an account or not. Learn more in this Media Viewer Help page.

Please let us know if you have any questions or comments about Media Viewer. You are invited to share your feedback in this discussion on in any language, to help improve this feature. You are also welcome to take this quick survey in English, en français, o español.

We hope you enjoy Media Viewer. Many thanks to all the community members who helped make it possible. - Fabrice Florin (WMF) (talk) 19. jun. 2014 kl. 23:54 (CEST)[svar]

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decisions[rediger]

The Wikimedia Foundation recently created a new feature, "superprotect" status. The purpose is to prevent pages from being edited by elected administrators -- but permitting WMF staff to edit them. It has been put to use in only one case: to protect the deployment of the Media Viewer software on German Wikipedia, in defiance of a clear decision of that community to disable the feature by default, unless users decide to enable it.

If you oppose these actions, please add your name to this letter. If you know non-Wikimedians who support our vision for the free sharing of knowledge, and would like to add their names to the list, please ask them to sign an identical version of the letter on

Process ideas for software development[rediger]

’’My apologies for writing in English.’’


I am notifying you that a brainstorming session has been started on Meta to help the Wikimedia Foundation increase and better affect community participation in software development across all wiki projects. Basically, how can you be more involved in helping to create features on Wikimedia projects? We are inviting all interested users to voice their ideas on how communities can be more involved and informed in the product development process at the Wikimedia Foundation. It would be very appreciated if you could translate this message to help inform your local communities as well.

I and the rest of my team welcome you to participate. We hope to see you on Meta.

Kind regards, -- Rdicerb (WMF) talk 22. aug. 2014 kl. 00:15 (CEST)[svar]

Grants to improve your project[rediger]

Apologies for English. Please help translate this message.

Greetings! The Individual Engagement Grants program is accepting proposals for funding new experiments from September 1st to 30th. Your idea could improve Wikimedia projects with a new tool or gadget, a better process to support community-building on your wiki, research on an important issue, or something else we haven't thought of yet. Whether you need $200 or $30,000 USD, Individual Engagement Grants can cover your own project development time in addition to hiring others to help you.

Meta RfCs on two new global groups[rediger]

Hello all,

There are currently requests for comment open on meta to create two new global groups. The first is a group for members of the OTRS permissions queue, which would grant them autopatrolled rights on all wikis except those who opt-out. That proposal can be found at m:Requests for comment/Creation of a global OTRS-permissions user group. The second is a group for Wikimedia Commons admins and OTRS agents to view deleted file pages through the 'viewdeletedfile' right on all wikis except those who opt-out. The second proposal can be found at m:Requests for comment/Global file deletion review.

We would like to hear what you think on both proposals. Both are in English; if you wanted to translate them into your native language that would also be appreciated.

It is possible for individual projects to opt-out, so that users in those groups do not have any additional rights on those projects. To do this please start a local discussion, and if there is consensus you can request to opt-out of either or both at m:Stewards' noticeboard.

Thanks and regards, Ajraddatz (talk) 26. okt. 2014 kl. 19:04 (CET)[svar]

VIKTIG: Gjennomgang av administrative aktiviteter[rediger]

Hallo. En ny policy vedrørende fjerning av rettigheter for administratorer, byråkrater o.a. er nettopp trådt i kraft global community consensus (Deres nettsamfunn har fått melding om den pågående diskusjonen).

I tråd med denne policyen følger stewardene med på administrative aktiviteter på mindre wikier. Så vidt vi er kjent med, har deres wiki ingen formell prosess for å fjerne "avanserte rettigheter" ved langvarig inaktivitet. Dette innebærer at stewardene vil ordne dette i tråd med de nye admin activity review oversikter over administratoraktiviteter.

Vi har funnet at følgende brukere kan ansees inaktive (ingen redigeringer og ingen logget aktivitet i mere enn 2 år)

  1. Eirik (administrator)
  2. Kjetil Svenheim (administrator)
  3. Tokle (administrator)

Disse brukerne vil motta melding snart, om at de må ta det opp med wikisamfunnet om de ønsker å beholde rettighetene. Hvis henvendelsen ikke blir besvart, vil stewardene fjerne rettighetene.

Men nettsamfunnet står fritt til å skape egne prosedyrer. Det kan også ha skjedd at vi ikke har fått med oss allerede eksisterende prosedyrer. I så fall: Meld fra til stewards on Meta-Wiki slik at vi ikke kjører prosedyren på deres Wiki. Takk! Rschen7754 4. nov. 2014 kl. 05:22 (CET)[svar]

Global AbuseFilter[rediger]


AbuseFilter is a MediaWiki extension used to detect likely abusive behavior patterns, like pattern vandalism and spam. In 2013, Global AbuseFilters were enabled on a limited set of wikis including Meta-Wiki,, Wikispecies and (in early 2014) all the "small wikis". Recently, global abuse filters were enabled on "medium sized wikis" as well. These filters are currently managed by stewards on Meta-Wiki and have shown to be very effective in preventing mass spam attacks across Wikimedia projects. However, there is currently no policy on how the global AbuseFilters will be managed although there are proposals. There is an ongoing request for comment on policy governing the use of the global AbuseFilters. In the meantime, specific wikis can opt out of using the global AbuseFilter. These wikis can simply add a request to this list on Meta-Wiki. More details can be found on this page at Meta-Wiki. If you have any questions, feel free to ask on m:Talk:Global AbuseFilter.
