About this board

Nux (talkcontribs)

Hello. I was wondering if you would be so kind as to assist me with running a bot for Template:WMFReleaseTableRow? I would greatly appreciate your help in this matter. I just added a function that adds anchors for an upcoming release.

Nux (talkcontribs)

I meant running translation updates, as it seems that new version is not shown just by purging.

Quiddity (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hi Nux, sorry for the delayed reply. Unfortunately, I don't have any experience with running bots, so I cannot help with that request directly.

I'd suggest that you talk to the Release Engineering Team about your idea; perhaps by creating a phabricator task with your proposal/goal for the bot, and a description of what the bot should do, and details of how much help you need (or what kind of help you can offer if you're looking for someone to do much/most of it).

I hope that helps a bit!

Nux (talkcontribs)

No problem. It seems it was already done :)

Quiddity (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Oh! Now I understand! Sorry for my confusion, I was imagining something much more complex!

I sometimes wish there was a bit more automation in that whole system, so I had jumped to that conclusion. (But at the same time… more code/automation = more things to maintain and more things that might go wrong! So I was also nervous to even try to help!).

Have a good $time-of-day! :)

我正在啟動一個中央樞紐的規劃,主要的範圍在讓元維基回覆應有的協調功能,這是屬於全球性的不分地區,中心樞紐,這個項目會包含改善Wikipedia Posted in Google Play and Apply Story The two most common market share OS The biggest difficulty in starting my project is that I have a lot of basic syntax and are just new to it Because I didn't grow up in a country educated in English It's like learning a second language first This may not be the case for Western countries influences But I was born in 1978Skills required for the occupation also do not require exposure to paperwork said difficulty It's not just like a normal English input test Just follow the test script to test a few English words in one minute My profession only needs to talk to clients in spoken language formal written It's all about the content of the contract that I negotiate with the client I also have to arrange the content myself first.Then send the perfect content to the company The administration asked them to do a preliminary draft using the clerical system I will proofread the content again, and the important text should be enlarged.or add a slide I print it out at the end and I give it to my client like i said The executive branch does not have the ability to communicate externally Paperwork is limited to fixed manuscripts The administrative department's logical ability is not very good So these are two different concepts a senior programming engineer Probably the most lack is social Most of the time, this type of Continue to develop and test in front of the computer because it's his hobby There are many famous scholars or scientists in history I didn't like talking to people at the time e.g. Tesla At that time, his ideas went beyond the general knowledge of the time.No human being can understand even if he explains it What is a coil Able to operate automatically and generate electricity all the time There is still no way to build this device Because there is no complete design manuscript No one even if there is a manuscript Know where the main point that cannot be fully concatenated is Therefore, it is limited to imitation, and what comes out is two kinds of items like the manuscript.There is no way for the latter to be achieved, and it is considered a failure and has no function.I am waiting for your reply Hope to have a big project together and present it together completely It's not just because it's purely for profit I believe that everyone's greatest wish is to be able to put a speech recognition system built out We have a lot of enough databases for this system No company has more data than Wikimedia Because there is also a digital alliance that is also a related partner of Wikimedia It's just that no one has the skills to integrate and convince other projects that they are good at coordinating I have this skill, just need a pilot subdomain to get started,I've finished the draft of the plan All departments only need to agree to upload Categorized assignments made by sister project teams Because these are the duties of each department There are databases and professionals These conditions can surpass Google Assistant and Apply Siri I'm sure Wikimedia will have its own directly together communication social software This is a direct causal effect just missing a major integrated central department Current Wikimedia committees like a machine in unassembled parts CPU graphics card hard drive These parts are sold separately for cheap But in the hands of the manufacturer, it is assembled into a supercomputer This computer is worth more than just money First to get economic value after assembly The value of various computer parts I like this analogy, you should listen to understand the real meaningJcMamdy(just discuss no ability to destroy)(Don't bite the newbie) 21:00, 30 September 2022 (UTC)

Hello. If I understand correctly, you are asking about further work related to the page I started at Voice assistants and Wikimedia.

I started that page (with my volunteer-account, not this staff-account) primarily in the hope of inspiring more people to work on the related open source software projects that already provide access to Wikimedia content. (I.e. they would learn about things like MycroftAI, and go contribute to that code-base).

I do not have any official role in regards to that page. I cannot help with anything about it, aside from the text and links.

If you want to propose technical work on something related to it, I suggest asking at Project:Support desk, where they might be able to help.

I hope that helps.

How we will see unregistered users

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Thank you for helping my learning process as a new WMF staff member and editor; it makes me less terrified to know that veterans are watching and will help correct my mistakes!

Wikistats 2.0 Prototype Feedback

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Hello! Thank you for leaving feedback on the Wikistats - Future per report and Feedback/Round 1 pages. We used it to build an interactive prototype of the next version of Wikistats. We're now looking for feedback on the visual design, and we'd love your input. We have some follow-up questions but mostly an open discussion at Request for feedback/Round2 (if you prefer email, write to milimetric@wikimedia.org and please include "Wikistats Design" in the subject). Please comment by Monday, May 1st so we can include your feedback into the first release of Wikistats 2.0. Thank you very much!

Hi Quiddity. Regarding upcoming significant UI changes, I'm aware of the 2017 Wikitext editor and the possible Timeless skin. Are you aware of any other significant changes on the horizon that would likely result in the need for widespread changes to the LearnWiki videos after the UI changes are made? The videos can be updated relatively easily to adapt to minor design changes such as the appearance of a progress bar, but changing where commonly used buttons appear or other changes that would disorient users would be important for me to know soon so that I can try to adapt LearnWiki to them before scripts move into production. Thanks.

Quiddity (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hi Pine. The other things that you're almost certainly already aware of are ERI (in current Beta Features), and the save/publish button change currently scheduled for early May. Beyond that, there are the usual ongoing incremental standardizations to the OOUI system, but that will mostly just be minor colour changes, and not location changes/rearrangements or anything overly confusing. However, as will always be the case, someone might have an epiphany for an improvement in any aspect of the site, and so I can't predict the future with certainty.

Are your in-progress scripts available anywhere, so that I can look through them? [searches... searches...] Ah, m:Grants:IEG/Motivational and educational video to introduce Wikimedia/Scripts (always include links!). From a quick skim through that, nothing leaps out at me as an area that the UI might change. I'll try to take a closer look when I have time (likely a couple of weeks). Feel free to remind me then.

Pine (talkcontribs)

Thanks. Please don't review the LearnWiki draft scripts yet until I've made an announcement, but having comments on the *outline* would be helpful during the next month or two.

Regarding predicting change, as Yoda once said, "Always in motion is the future." That's my Zen thought, anyway.

Why WM always decrease the user experience?

Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talkcontribs)

Quiddity can you explain why you add a one more step in the contribution? Why the click to expand?

Quiddity (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hi. Yeah, that section of filters was too big for some people (both before and after the accessibility/OOUI redesign) who complained, so it was changed to be collapsed.

However that brought up this issue of the group of people who do actually use those control-features constantly (a small but crucial demographic), which is why they're now also working on phab:T234569 to make it "sticky" (so if you expand it, it will always be expanded for you).

TLDR: It will be fixed.
