Overview #2 of updates on Wikimedia movement strategy process[usba ang wikitext]

Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English. This message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

As we mentioned last month, the Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout 2017. This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve.

Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list, and posted on Meta-Wiki. Each month, we are sending overviews of these updates to this page as well. Sign up to receive future announcements and monthly highlights of strategy updates on your user talk page.

Here is a overview of the updates that have been sent since our message last month:

More information about the movement strategy is available on the Meta-Wiki 2017 Wikimedia movement strategy portal.

Start of the 2017 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees elections[usba ang wikitext]

Please accept our apologies for cross-posting this message. This message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

Wikimedia-logo black.svg

On behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee, I am pleased to announce that self-nominations are being accepted for the 2017 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees Elections.

The Board of Trustees (Board) is the decision-making body that is ultimately responsible for the long-term sustainability of the Wikimedia Foundation, so we value wide input into its selection. More information about this role can be found on Meta-Wiki. Please read the letter from the Board of Trustees calling for candidates.

The candidacy submission phase will last from April 7 (00:00 UTC) to April 20 (23:59 UTC).

We will also be accepting questions to ask the candidates from April 7 to April 20. You can submit your questions on Meta-Wiki.

Once the questions submission period has ended on April 20, the Elections Committee will then collate the questions for the candidates to respond to beginning on April 21.

The goal of this process is to fill the three community-selected seats on the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. The election results will be used by the Board itself to select its new members.

The full schedule for the Board elections is as follows. All dates are inclusive, that is, from the beginning of the first day (UTC) to the end of the last.

  • April 7 (00:00 UTC) – April 20 (23:59 UTC) – Board nominations
  • April 7 – April 20 – Board candidates questions submission period
  • April 21 – April 30 – Board candidates answer questions
  • May 1 – May 14 – Board voting period
  • May 15–19 – Board vote checking
  • May 20 – Board result announcement goal

In addition to the Board elections, we will also soon be holding elections for the following roles:

  • Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC)
    • There are five positions being filled. More information about this election will be available on Meta-Wiki.
  • Funds Dissemination Committee Ombudsperson (Ombuds)
    • One position is being filled. More information about this election will be available on Meta-Wiki.

Please note that this year the Board of Trustees elections will be held before the FDC and Ombuds elections. Candidates who are not elected to the Board are explicitly permitted and encouraged to submit themselves as candidates to the FDC or Ombuds positions after the results of the Board elections are announced.

More information on this year's elections can be found on Meta-Wiki. Any questions related to the election can be posted on the election talk page on Meta-Wiki, or sent to the election committee's mailing list, board-elections(at)

On behalf of the Election Committee,
Katie Chan, Chair, Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee
Joe Sutherland, Community Advocate, Wikimedia Foundation

Wikidata description editing in the Wikipedia Android app[usba ang wikitext]

Wikidata description editing is a new experiment being rolled out on the Wikipedia app for Android. While this primarily impacts Wikidata, the changes are also addressing a concern about the mobile versions of Wikipedia, so that mobile users will be able to edit directly the descriptions shown under the title of the page and in the search results.

We began by rolling out this feature several weeks ago to a pilot group of Wikipedias (Russian, Hebrew, and Catalan), and have seen very positive results including numerous quality contributions in the form of new and updated descriptions, and a low rate of vandalism.

We are now ready for the next phase of rolling out this feature, which is to enable it in a few days for all Wikipedias except the top ten by usage within the app (i.e. except English, German, Italian, French, Spanish, Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese, Turkish, and Chinese). We will enable the feature for those languages instead at some point in the future, as we closely monitor user engagement with our expanded set of pilot communities. As always, if have any concerns, please reach out to us on wiki at the talk page for this project or by email at Thanks!

A bot to combat en:WP:LINKROT (Deploy InternetArchiveBot to cebwiki)[usba ang wikitext]

Hello everyone of the Swedish Wikipedia. I am Cyberpower678, a bot operator on the English Wikipedia. I am reaching out to the content editors of this Wikipedia, in regards to the mentioned Phabricator tasks listed on the right. T120433 is a tracking ticket for an ongoing bot project to combat dead links constantly surfacing in hundreds of thousands of articles. This ticket was opened as a result of being the number one requested bot on the m:2015 Community Wishlist Survey, and can be found here. I am currently the lead developer of this bot project, and with the bot ready for deployment onto other wikis, I am asking Cebuano Wikipedians if the welcome such a bot. The Phabricator task that tracks this project is T120433.

The specific ticket for deploying this bot to the Swedish Wikipedia is T136144. The first step is gaining community consensus, through this proposal, and then adapting the bot to suit the needs of this wiki.

What does this bot do?[usba ang wikitext]

This bot is very functional, configurable, and very intelligent. The bot comes with a run page, that allows for the quick disabling of the bot, in the event of a malfunction. Every wiki will also have a config page, that directs the bot how to behave on that wiki. On the English Wikipedia, the bot is able to scan existing URLs and detect if they are dead or not. During trial testing, this has revealed to have a false positive rate of 0.1%. The reliability rate is now even better, than during the initial trial The bot is capable of replacing original URLs with archive URLs, or adding them on. It is able to read sources and citations formatted in various ways and either intelligently fix the source as needed or make the formatting consistent, by altering the way the source is formatted. InternetArchiveBot, can leave a talk page message with details of what it did to the article page. The configuration page also has an option to only leave messages and not touch the main article at all. InternetArchiveBot is {{nobots}} compliant and also supports a blank tag used on the English Wikipedia, {{cbignore}}, which instructs the bot to ignore a specific source on a page.

What wikis support this?[usba ang wikitext]

It's currently fully operational on the English and Swedish Wikipedias.

Some examples: [1][2][3][4]

Discussion[usba ang wikitext]

I agree with several people commenting at Phabricator that this is not the best Wikipedia for your bot. At the very least, if you run your bot here you should have it disregard the 4-5 sites that are used the vast majority of botcreated articles. Linkrot that is common to a million articles is better handled in other ways. Lsj (talk) 20:46, 28 Hunyo 2017 (UTC)

Prototype for editing Wikidata infoboxes on Wikipedia[usba ang wikitext]


I’m sorry for writing in English. It’d be great if someone could translate this message if necessary.

One of the most requested features for Wikidata is to enable editing of Wikidata’s data directly from Wikipedia, so the editors can continue their workflow without switching websites.

The Wikidata development team has been working on a tool to achieve this goal: fill and edit the Wikipedia infoboxes with information from Wikidata, directly on Wikipedia, via the Visual Editor.

We already asked for feedback in 2015, and collected some interesting ideas which we shared with you in this thesis. Now we would like to present to you our first prototype and collect your feedback, in order to improve and continue the development of this feature.

We present this work to you very early, so we can include your feedback before and all along the development. You are the core users of this feature, so we want to make sure that it fits your needs and editing processes.

You will find the prototype, description of the features, and a demo video, on this page. Feel free to add any comment or feedback on the talk page. The page is currently not translated in every languages, but you can add your contribution by helping to translate it.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to follow all the discussions on Wikipedia, so if you want to be sure that your feedback is read, please add it on the Wikidata page, in your favorite language. Thanks for your understanding.

Thanks, Lea Lacroix (WMDE)

New notification when a page is connected to Wikidata[usba ang wikitext]

Hello all,

(Please help translate to your language)

The Wikidata development team is about to deploy a new feature on all Wikipedias. It is a new type of notification (via Echo, the notification system you see at the top right of your wiki when you are logged in), that will inform the creator of a page, when this page is connected to a Wikidata item.

You may know that Wikidata provides a centralized system for all the interwikilinks. When a new page is created, it should be connected to the corresponding Wikidata item, by modifying this Wikidata item. With this new notification, editors creating pages will be informed when another editor connects this page to Wikidata.

Screenshot Echo Wikibase notification.png

This feature will be deployed on May 30th on all the Wikipedias, excepting English, French and German. This feature will be disable by default for existing editors, and enabled by default for new editors.

This is the first step of the deployments, the Wikipedias and other Wikimedia projects will follow in the next months.

If you have any question, suggestion, please let me know by pinging me. You can also follow and leave a comment on the Phabricator ticket.

Thanks go to Matěj Suchánek who developed this feature!

Thank you! Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talk)

m:Requests for comment/Global centralnotice for the blockade of the Turkish government[usba ang wikitext]

Hi, you are invited to participate in the discussion on the proposal to make a banner through m: centralnotice to inform more people around the world about what the Turkish government has done about Wikipedia, ie all the language versions of Wikipedia are You are obscured, so in Turkey it is impossible to view the * site. To hope that the Turkish government will remove the block, it is necessary to raise awareness of this fact around the world because it is important to succeed in this mission because Wikipedia can not be seen in Turkey. With this message also for those interested, I invite him to sign the Wikimedian appeal.

If you have any questions or questions do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks best regards. --Samuele2002 (Talk!) 18:26, 18 Mayo 2017 (UTC)

Below are all SFF related articles that you can translate from English or Bosnian, but the main article and the award article are the most important.

Improved search in deleted pages archive[usba ang wikitext]

Please help translate to your language

During Wikimedia Hackathon 2016, the Discovery team worked on one of the items on the 2015 community wishlist, namely enabling searching the archive of deleted pages. This feature is now ready for production deployment, and will be enabled on all wikis, except Wikidata.

Right now, the feature is behind a feature flag - to use it on your wiki, please go to the Special:Undelete page, and add &fuzzy=1 to the URL, like this: Then search for the pages you're interested in. There should be more results than before, due to using ElasticSearch indexing (via the CirrusSearch extension).

We plan to enable this improved search by default on all wikis soon (around August 1, 2017). If you have any objections to this - please raise them with the Discovery team via email or on this announcement's discussion page. Like most Mediawiki configuration parameters, the functionality can be configured per wiki. Once the improved search becomes the default, you can still access the old mode using &fuzzy=0 in the URL, like this:

Please note that since Special:Undelete is an admin-only feature, this search capability is also only accessible to wiki admins.

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.

Bot-inflated NUMBEROFARTICLES[usba ang wikitext]

Looking at the "List of Wikipedias" on, you will get the impression that Cebuano is more popular than Swedish or German. This is not the case; a Cebuano fanboy has (inspired by an user on the Volapuk wiki) written a bot to artificially increase the NUMBEROFARTICLES. I propose that all articles created by User:Lsjbot be deleted, and that its creator be globally locked. KATMAKROFAN (talk) 15:01, 23 Septiyembre 2017 (UTC)

Maayong adlaw sa tanan.
Panahon na nga limpyohan na nato ang atong Binisayang Wikipedya. Hapit na ta mahimong kinadak-ang wikipedya, lupigan pa ang Iningles nga wikipedya. Pero sa nakit-an nako pulos bot ang nagahimo'g artikulo dinhi. Mas maayo nga tawo na lang ang magmugna og mga bag-ong artikulo. Ang artikulong de kaledad ang labaw nga mas maayong basehan kumpara sa kantidad. Mahimo lang kini nga tarong kun pagamyan nato ang atong Wikipedya.
Ato na tangtangon ang mga atikulo nahimo ni Lsjbot.

presenting the project Wikipedia Cultural Diversity Observatory and asking for a vounteer in Cebuano Wikipedia[usba ang 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 Cebuano Wikipedia into the rest of Wikipedia language editions, and viceversa, make Cebuano 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 Cebuano 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 the page I provided. In any case, I will appreciate any feedback, comments,... Thanks in advance for your time! Best regards, --Marcmiquel (talk) 14:07, 10 Oktubre 2017 (UTC) Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona
