Hello! I try to register on Serbian Wikipedia but whenever I type the phrase from the window it always tell me that I typed it wrong and it gives me new word and same thign all over... I can't register because of it. Help me. Zivela Srbija! — Претходан непотписан коментар оставио је корисник (разговордоприноси) •

Interesting. You should check your keyboard settings, maybe it was set to cyrillic and phrase had to be typed in english, or something like that...--Мирослав Ћика (разговор) 04:43, 14. септембар 2009. (CEST)

Photographer M. Jovanović in Beograd (1889)[уреди]

Hi! I have noticed some portraits of famous Serbian personalities (mainly Jovan Belimarković and en:Kosta Taušanović) in a scanned Czech magazine, published 05.04.1889. They are captioned as "from the studio of M. Jovanović in Beograd". Could anyone please check when Mr. M. Jovanović died, to verify if (or when) we can upload & use them? (After verification, feel free to upload them yourself, or tell me here.) Thanks! --Sapfan (разговор) 11:16, 23. август 2009. (CEST)

I assume that M. Jovanović is probably Milan Jovanović, brother of Paja Jovanović, who died on 17 March 1944.In the last decades of XIX century, he made portraits of famous Serbian personalities (some of them are listed here). Црни Бомбардер!!! Шумски Крст(†) 01:07, 24. август 2009. (CEST)
Thanks for this information - looks like we have to wait for 6 more years. Хвала, --Sapfan (разговор) 08:35, 24. август 2009. (CEST)

In Serbia, if author died before 1955., images are in public domain. So they could be uploaded here, and later copied to Commons.--Мирослав Ћика (разговор) 15:12, 14. септембар 2009. (CEST)

Transcription of citynames[уреди]

Hi! I am Perolinka from Swedish wikipedia. I wonder if it would be possible for someone here that understand serbian language to make a transcription of all names in the template of towns in Cetinje. I would really appreciate that, and it would make a big favour. You could write the transcripted names here.

Thanks! Perolinka (разговор) 21:56, 5. септембар 2009. (CEST)

And where exactly is the list of names in Serbian that you want to transcribe? And into what language, English or Swedish? Cetinje is a fairly small city in Montenegro, and there are no towns within it. Which makes your question somewhat unclear to me.--Мирослав Ћика (разговор) 04:40, 14. септембар 2009. (CEST)

I could not find the page with deletion reason text. However, there is a large number of images available for that monastery at Commons: [1]. Also, there are 2 monasteries with the same name: Манастир Ђурђеви ступови (Црна Гора) and Манастир Ђурђеви ступови.--Мирослав Ћика (разговор) 15:37, 25. септембар 2009. (CEST)
Thanks for you time, I just noticed that I was wrong, commons:File:180px-Stupovi-1-.jpg is not Слика:Stupovi.jpg, it was some other image. Maybe I will find it to replace the 180px trahs version. --Martin H. (разговор) 17:09, 25. септембар 2009. (CEST)

Fundraising time is around the corner![уреди]

Hello Wikimedians, my name is Sam and I am working for the Wikimedia Foundation during the 2010 Fundraiser. My job is to be the liaison between the Serbian (Српски/Srpski) community and the Foundation. This year's fundraiser is intended to be a collaborative and global effort, we recognize that banner messages that perform well in the United States don't necessarily translate well, or appeal to international audiences.

I'm contacting you as I am currently looking for translators who are willing to contribute to this project, helping to translate and localize messages into Српски/Srpski and suggesting messages that would appeal to Српски/Srpski readers on the Fundraising Meta Page. We've started the setup on meta for both banner submission, statistical analysis, and grouping volunteers together.
Use the talk pages on meta, talk to your local communities, talk to others, talk to us, and add your feedback to the proposed messages as well! I look forward to working with you during this year's fundraiser.

Please translate this message into Српски/Srpski if you can and post it below.Schapman (разговор) 20:57, 7. октобар 2010. (CEST)

Fundraiser 2010! Help Us Beat JIMMY![уреди]

The Fundraising Committee is issuing all interested community members a challenge: we want you to beat Jimmy. The appeal from Jimmy Wales and the corresponding banner have been tested head-to-head with other successful banners, and the results are clear: it's our best performing message... by a lot. This year we have a lofty fundraising goal; we need all of our banners to bring in donations like the Jimmy Appeal, but no one wants to keep the Jimmy banner up for two months. We want to run donor quotes, and other wonderful ideas, but we have to have banners that work as well as or better than the Jimmy appeal.

We've just released the highlights from a donor focus group, and the results of our donor survey. With one month to the launch of the fundraiser, the messages we test must be driven by data from our tests and surveys - we can no longer rely on instinct alone.

We've redesigned our fundraising meta pages with the Jimmy challenge; check out the survey results and propose/discuss banners that reflect these findings. Add the banners you think will 'beat Jimmy' here to be tested Tuesday October 12 against Jimmy. Also, please see Philippe's email*Beat Jimmy further explaining the Jimmy Challenge. Schapman (разговор) 19:58, 6. октобар 2010. (CEST)

Hello, Schapman. Please, note that I have already informed the community about the process ongoing (the long story short). I actually also asked a question that you might be able to answer. 本 Михајло [ talk ] 21:07, 7. октобар 2010. (CEST)
Hi there Михајло. Thank you for your attention to this and your outreach in your community. To answer your question, I think the best way to do it would be Fundraising 2010/sr and then a redirect to that from translated title, so the translation would be on Fundraising 2010/sr and the <translate title> would redirect to fundraising 2010/sr. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions. Schapman (разговор) 22:42, 7. октобар 2010. (CEST)

Fundraiser Update[уреди]

Greetings Wikimedians! Sorry for the English, anyone who is able to translate is welcome (and encouraged). The 2010 Fundraiser is live and has greatly benefited from all the contributions from our translators. Throughout the fundraiser there will continue to be a need for help with translating and localizing messages. Currently, the core messages need to be updated, as there have been recent additions to the request. You can find all translation requests at the translation hub on meta and you can follow the progress of the fundraiser in real time by tracking the fundraiser statistics. Also for those of you who haven't already, you can subscribe to the translators-l mailing list for all new requests and major changes. Many thanks for your help in truly making this a global fundraiser that you can edit. SChapman

  • Editor Appeals Need Translations

Hi everyone! Sorry for the English, anyone who is able to translate is welcome (and encouraged). Translations are very important to the 2010 fundraiser and those of you who have contributed have done great work. We still have a long way to go though and will continue to need your indispensable skills. Currently, the appeals from Wikipedia editors Kartika, Liliaroja, Abbas and Joan Gomà need to be translated and localized. schapman

Browsing the pages in Latin script[уреди]

Hi. Transliterators are used on several wikipedias and on Serbian Wikipedia, but I realized that in order to see consecutive pages in Latin script we need to log out and browse the Latin pages as an IP. Do you the reason or can your overcome this problem?--Companionship (разговор) 15:08, 19. децембар 2010. (CET)

I made improved logo for Macedonian Wiki which includes some rare characters (special д and п) in tagline "Слободна енциклопедиjа", and I wonder if this tagline shall be the same in Serbian language?

See here :

Wikipedia-logo-v2-mk.svg Wikipedia-logo-v2-sr.svg

I asked admins to update Serbian logo, but they said I shall ask communit first.--Orange-kun (разговор) 17:42, 13. фебруар 2011. (CET)

Thanks for that very much! We do need a new logo, with Serbian italic. I think that the one you've made is very good. Letter spacing is a bit larger, and J doesn't have descender (doesn't go under the text line), but other than that it seems more-less the same as the original logo.
On another note, not only (д and п) are differ in Serbian/Macedonian Cyrillic, б (or b in Latin) is slightly different as well (look at the image below)

Special Cyrillics.png

I don't know if it would be a lot of work to change that as well, but none the less, п and д were the main problem, because they differ the most. I'll drop a note on Serbian on village pump, and in a day or two I'll update the logo. Once again, thank you very much for your work on the new logo! -- Обрадовић Горан (разговор) 22:21, 13. фебруар 2011. (CET)
You are welcome. I have updated Macedonian logo with special character for б (I used Greek δ).--Orange-kun (разговор) 00:41, 14. фебруар 2011. (CET)

Fundraiser 2011 translation[уреди]

Hi! I am Jon Harald Søby, and I work for the Wikimedia Foundation during the 2011 fundraiser. I am looking for people who can help coordinating the translations into Serbian for this year's fundraiser. The coordinator task is to help find translators and quality checkers, and make sure the translations are done in time. If you want to help out with coordinating, translating or quality checking, add your name to this list or send me an e-mail at jsoby@wikimedia.org. Jsoby (разговор) 19:35, 17. август 2011. (CEST)

I apologize that you are receiving this message in English. Please help translate it.

Dear Wikimedians, the Wikimedia Foundation has been discussing changes to its Terms of Use, and the draft of the new version has been revised. The discussion is still ongoing at m:Talk:Terms of use and everyone is invited to join in. Because the new version is not yet in final form, we are not able to present official translations of it, but unofficial translations into several languages have been provided by volunteers (see translation request). Note that these translations are not official and may become outdated as the English version is changed.

Announcing Wikipedia 1.19 beta[уреди]

Wikimedia Foundation is getting ready to push out 1.19 to all the WMF-hosted wikis. As we finish wrapping up our code review, you can test the new version right now on beta.wmflabs.org. For more information, please read the release notes or the start of the final announcement.

The following are the areas that you will probably be most interested in:

  • Faster loading of javascript files makes dependency tracking more important.
  • New common*.css files usable by skins instead of having to copy piles of generic styles from MonoBook or Vector's css.
  • The default user signature now contains a talk link in addition to the user link.
  • Searching blocked usernames in block log is now clearer.
  • Better timezone recognition in user preferences.
  • Improved diff readability for colorblind people.
  • The interwiki links table can now be accessed also when the interwiki cache is used (used in the API and the Interwiki extension).
  • More gender support (for instance in logs and user lists).
  • Language converter improved, e.g. it now works depending on the page content language.
  • Time and number-formatting magic words also now depend on the page content language.
  • Bidirectional support further improved after 1.18.

Report any problems on the labs beta wiki and we'll work to address them before they software is released to the production wikis.

Note that this cluster does have SUL but it is not integrated with SUL in production, so you'll need to create another account. You should avoid using the same password as you use here. — Global message delivery 17:34, 15. јануар 2012. (CET)

MediaWiki 1.19[уреди]

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.) The Wikimedia Foundation is planning to upgrade MediaWiki (the software powering this wiki) to its latest version this month. You can help to test it before it is enabled, to avoid disruption and breakage. More information is available in the full announcement. Thank you for your understanding.

Article translation request[уреди]

I am trying to find someone who can help to translate User:Russavia/Polandball into Serbian. If anyone could help with that, it would be great if you could drop me a message on email (russavia.wikipedia@gmail.com) or on my Commons talk page (Commons:User_talk:Russavia). All editors have my permission to edit the article at User:Russavia/Polandball to do the translation.

The article already exists on Russian, Spanish, Catalan, Arabic, Dutch, Greek, Swahili, Persian, etc Wikipedias. Any help with translating this article would be greatly appreciated

In return for a translation of the article, I will upload 50 new Serbian-related images to Commons, from a range of subjects. Russavia (разговор) 01:18, 11. мај 2012. (CEST)

Update on IPv6[уреди]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it, as well as the full version of this announcement on Meta)

The Wikimedia Foundation is planning to do limited testing of IPv6 on June 2-3. If there are not too many problems, we may fully enable IPv6 on World IPv6 day (June 6), and keep it enabled.

What this means for your project:

  • At least on June 2-3, 2012, you may see a small number of edits from IPv6 addresses, which are in the form "2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334". See e.g. w:en:IPv6 address. These addresses should behave like any other IP address: You can leave messages on their talk pages; you can track their contributions; you can block them. (See the full version of this announcement for notes on range blocks.)
  • In the mid term, some user scripts and tools will need to be adapted for IPv6.
  • We suspect that IPv6 usage is going to be very low initially, meaning that abuse should be manageable, and we will assist in the monitoring of the situation.

Read the full version of this announcement on how to test the behavior of IPv6 with various tools and how to leave bug reports, and to find a fuller analysis of the implications of the IPv6 migration.

Detailed information about the contest can be found at the introductory page.

About 600 of the best of Wikimedia Common's photos, animations, movies and graphics were chosen –by the international Wikimedia Commons community– out of 12 million files during 2011 and are now called Featured Pictures.

From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons Features Pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories.

We regret that you receive this message in English; we intended to use banners to notify you in your native language but there was both, human and technical resistance.

See you on Commons! --Picture of the Year 2011 Committee 20:40, 5. јун 2012. (CEST)

Help decide about more than $10 million of Wikimedia donations in the coming year[уреди]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it)


As many of you are aware, the Wikimedia Board of Trustees recently initiated important changes in the way that money is being distributed within the Wikimedia movement. As part of this, a new community-led "Funds Dissemination Committee" (FDC) is currently being set up. Already in 2012-13, its recommendations will guide the decisions about the distribution of over 10 million US dollars among the Foundation, chapters and other eligible entities.

Now, seven capable, knowledgeable and trustworthy community members are sought to volunteer on the initial Funds Dissemination Committee. It is expected to take up its work in September. In addition, a community member is sought to be the Ombudsperson for the FDC process. If you are interested in joining the committee, read the call for volunteers. Nominations are planned to close on August 15.

Request for Comment: Legal Fees Assistance Program[уреди]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

Wikidata is getting close to a first roll-out[уреди]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.)

As some of you might already have heard Wikimedia Deutschland is working on a new Wikimedia project. It is called m:Wikidata. The goal of Wikidata is to become a central data repository for the Wikipedias, its sister projects and the world. In the future it will hold data like the number of inhabitants of a country, the date of birth of a famous person or the length of a river. These can then be used in all Wikimedia projects and outside of them.

The project is divided into three phases and "we are getting close to roll-out the first phase". The phases are:

  1. language links in the Wikipedias (making it possible to store the links between the language editions of an article just once in Wikidata instead of in each linked article)
  2. infoboxes (making it possible to store the data that is currently in infoboxes in one central place and share the data)
  3. lists (making it possible to create lists and similar things based on queries to Wikidata so they update automatically when new data is added or modified)

It'd be great if you could join us, test the demo version, provide feedback and take part in the development of Wikidata. You can find all the relevant information including an FAQ and sign-up links for our on-wiki newsletter on the Wikidata page on Meta.

For further discussions please use this talk page (if you are uncomfortable writing in English you can also write in your native language there) or point me to the place where your discussion is happening so I can answer there.

Fundraising localization: volunteers from outside the USA needed[уреди]

Please translate for your local community

Hello All,

The Wikimedia Foundation's Fundraising team have begun our 'User Experience' project, with the goal of understanding the donation experience in different countries outside the USA and enhancing the localization of our donation pages. I am searching for volunteers to spend 30 minutes 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 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. Please sing up and help us with our 'User Experience' project! :) If you are interested (or know of anyone who could be) please email ppena@wikimedia.org. All countries needed (excepting USA)!

Localizing images into Serbian[уреди]

Hi. I localized an image which I created into Serbian (Latin) last night, and uploaded it to Wikimedia Commons - it's now on here attached to your article Blast povrede/Бласт повреде. Since your Wiki has two versions, Latin Serbian and Cyrillic Serbian, should I also produce the image in Cyrillic Serbian? I don't know how, but I'd like the article to show the Latin version of my image on the Latin version of your article, and the Cyrillic version of my image (when I make one) on the Cyrillic version of the article. Is this possible? Thanks! BarkingFish (разговор) 14:19, 6. јануар 2013. (CET)

Hi to you, too. Btw, I was the one that patrolled you edit. Face-grin.svg I think it's possible to create some kind of template, which would be able to switch images when the transliterator activates, but for that we'll have to wait for some technically experienced users. Actually, there's a little problem with the article and thus the localized image for blast injuries. For example, it stated "primarne blast povreda" which isn't correct. The singular is "primarna blast povreda" and plural is "primarne blast povrede". I fixed that and now it's the true plural. For the image, singulars are "primarna/sekundarna/tercijarna blast povreda". --Lakisan97 (разговор) 14:38, 6. јануар 2013. (CET)

Hi. Currently, latin/cyrillic conversion is built in MediaWiki software, and there is no possibility to swap pictures based on script used. But, this should not be problem, we use pictures in Serbian cyrillic, Serbian latin, English... Maybe, the best solution can be to produce numbered, not textually described image. Then, description can be given in File: tag, and its script will be changed together with the rest of the article text. --В. Бургић (реци...) 21:06, 6. јануар 2013. (CET)

Thank you both for your advice and help. Lakisan97, can I just clarify with you, that the text on the image should be in singular? If it should, I will make corrections at commons to the SVG and upload the repaired image Face-grin.svg Thanks! BarkingFish (разговор) 22:07, 6. јануар 2013. (CET)

Well, it's mostly your choice, but in Serbian, if I would to explain something, I would say it in singular form. If you want plural, just change final as /a/ to es /e/ or copy from the article. --Lakisan97 (разговор) 22:21, 6. јануар 2013. (CET)

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

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 ppena@wikimedia.org. All countries needed (excepting USA)!!

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

(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 timeanddate.com). 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.

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[уреди]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons.

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Wikidata phase 1 (language links) coming to this Wikipedia[уреди]


Sorry for writing in English. I hope someone can translate this locally.

Wikidata has been in development for a few months now. It is now time for the roll-out of the first part of it on your Wikipedia. Phase 1 is the support for the management of language links. It is already being used on the Hungarian, Hebrew, Italian and English Wikipedias. The next step is to enable the extension on all other Wikipedias. We have currently planned this for March 6.

What is Wikidata?[уреди]

Wikidata is a central place to store data that you can usually find in infoboxes. Think of it as something like Wikimedia Commons but for data (like the number of inhabitants of a country or the length of a river) instead of multimedia. The first part of this project (centralizing language links) is being rolled out now. The more fancy things will follow later.

What is going to happen?[уреди]

Language links in the sidebar are going to come from Wikidata in addition to the ones in the wiki text. To edit them, scroll to the bottom of the language links, and click edit. You no longer need to maintain these links by hand in the wiki text of the article.

Where can I find more information and ask questions?[уреди]

Editors on en:wp have created a great page with all the necessary information for editors and there is also an FAQ for this deployment. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

I want to be kept up to date about Wikidata[уреди]

Kruno Radiljević[уреди]

Hi, I am a user of it.wikipedia. I've created the page of it:Kruno Radiljević he was a football player who was in the Yugoslavia squad that won the silver medal on the Olympic games of 1956. Fortunately I have found his football career but I can't find any information about his life. Just I now that he was born on 1931 and I have found that now (probably) he is bosniac, but I don't where he is born, if now he is alive, etc etc. As I said he played for Yugoslavia, so do you know some football sources where I can found some info about him? I tried on this website but I can't found nothing. --The Crawler(Tornati dopo 20 anni!) 10:28, 27. фебруар 2013. (CET)

JS for persistent script settings[уреди]

I notice that after selecting "Latinica" at the top of the page, all links on the page still lead to Cyrillic pages. Have you considered fixing that with JS? Adding something like this:

location.pathname.indexOf( "/sr-el/" ) == 0 && $( function($){
  $("a").attr("href", function( x, href ){ return href && href.replace( /^\/wiki\//g, "/sr-el/" ); })

to Mediawiki:Common.js would probably work. --Yair rand (разговор) 23:34, 5. март 2013. (CET)

Wikidata phase 1 (language links) live on this Wikipedia[уреди]


Sorry for writing in English. I hope someone can translate this locally. If you understand German better than English you can have a look at the announcement on de:Wikipedia:Kurier.

As I annonced 2 weeks ago, Wikidata phase 1 (language links) has been deployed here today. Language links in the sidebar are coming from Wikidata in addition to the ones in the wiki text. To edit them, scroll to the bottom of the language links, and click edit. You no longer need to maintain these links by hand in the wiki text of the article.

Where can I find more information and ask questions? Editors on en:wp have created a great page with all the necessary information for editors and there is also an FAQ for this deployment. It'd be great if you could bring this to this wiki if that has not already happened. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

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

(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.

[en] Change to section edit links[уреди]

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.

CYR/LAT solution in Serbian Wikipedia[уреди]

Hello! I would like to learn in detail about principles and technology used in Serbian Wikipedia to create/store/update twin articles in CYR/LAT. I'm from Tatar Wikipedia, where we also write in both Latin and Cyrillic scripts. Our articles are available in either or both scripts (linked via manually added TwinLAT/TwinCYR templates) which is not very convenient.
The need to learn about such principles and technologies is relatively urgent for us, as the issue of ArticleCount has now caused a contentious vote about forced deletion/merging of such articles (closed yesterday), which wouldn't allow people who can use only one script, to contribute into Tatar Wikipedia articles originally created in another script.
History of the issue: Latin script was used for Tatar language in parallel with Arabic from the end of 19th century, gaining wide acceptance by early 1920s, both choked in USSR following Stalin's 1939 decision to enforce Cyrillic. Now predominantly Cyrillic Tatar Wikipedia started as TATLAT by Tatar diaspora outside of Russia, currently ~20% of Tatars live outside of Cyrillic use area. On Dec.24, 2012 Tatarstan parliament has formally approved use of Latin & Arabic scripts again (see TATWIKi CYR article, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty published article in TATCYR or Tatar-Inform.ru Tatarstan's official news-agency article in TATLAT). Currently, active user contributions are ~ 50/50 in Latin & Cyrillic. - Frhdkazan (talk) 06:04, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

I'm not too familiar with the technical implementation of the language conversion system, but it shouldn't be too complicated. I think it's easy enough to make it for ttwiki. As for using the dual system, you just click on a version you want to see and the article gets transliterated from one script to the other. There are tags for evading transliteration, which helps a lot with foreign texts. If you have anything in particular you'd like to know, do ask. --Dungodung (разговор) 24 окт 2013, 19:04 (UTC)
Thanks. I also got some advice at Wikimedia forum.
I see you have resolved ArticleCount issue by allowing use of sole script in the page (whichever's first) and using CYR->LAT & LAT->CYR converters. But what is your policy towards LAT only or CYR only user who wants to contribute into an article originally in another script? Did you implement automatic CYR/LAT synchronization of some sort, do you allow CYR/LAT articles to be different or do you mandate that contributions are only in the original article script? - Frhdkazan (разговор) 09:10, 25. октобар 2013. (CEST)
We have policy VP:SRPSKI. Its third paragraph discusses about changing the script. In a nutshell, articles can be written in either Cyrillic or Latin script. Those two, however, mustn't be mixed. If there is a particular reason to mix the scripts (writing down untranscribed names, for example) we avoid priblems with -{}-. Some users, as you already mentioned, may refuse or are unable to write in one script or another. Nevertheless, everyone should contribute in the original script. Exceptions are regulated by VP:SRPSKI. For example, if we have ten articles about songs of one particular artist and only one of them is in Cyrillic, it should be changed to Latin and vice-versa (so, one series of articles — one script). Next, if the size of the article is doubled (stub → more informations), contributor chooses the script. Finally, if the article isn't doubled but thoroughly cleaned and improved, script can be changed. P.S. We also have some special bot scripts for preventing unintentioned mixing of homoglyphs such as a/а, e/е, o/о, c/с, p/р and others. --Lakisan97 (разговор) 14:42, 25. октобар 2013. (CEST)

Introducing Beta Features[уреди]

(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 MediaWiki.org. This Thursday, it will also be released on Wikimedia Commons and MetaWiki. 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 BetaFeatures now? After you log in on MediaWiki.org, 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) (разговор) 19:55, 5. новембар 2013. (CET)

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.

We look forward to a constructive discussion with you, so we can make a more informed decision together on this important topic. Keegan (WMF) (разговор) 01:49, 17. јануар 2014. (CET)

A requests for comment on Meta-Wiki about Serbian Wikipedia[уреди]

Apologize for the English, and please translate into Serbian as you see appropriate. This is to inform you that I have motioned to close this RFC as stale because there has been no additional constructive developments or comments to resolve this discussion since July of 2012. In addition, there were no actionable requests made about what should require the Meta community to intervene on Serbian Wikipedia, and it is my opinion that the Serbian Wikipedia is large enough to handle local requests on its own without opening RFCs on Meta-Wiki. (For example, English Wikipedia has many banned users coming to Meta-Wiki to appeal their bans but Meta-Wiki's community has no authority on the English Wikipedia, therefore similar issues local to Serbian Wikipedia should be handled by Serbian Wikipedia community.)

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

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

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 Википедија 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[уреди]

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[уреди]

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.

Media Viewer[уреди]

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) 23:29, 23. мај 2014. (CEST)

Latin and Cyrillic[уреди]












For beginning, let's you start to use Caps_Lock button, please!

I don't understand, why you care so much for the Serbian Wikipedia, because you don't know Serbian language, therefore you don't know so much about the Serbian scripts (Latin and Cyrillic) or Serbian alphabets.
Your suggestion is completely pointless, because you probably don't know that some languages ​​use more scripts (for example Azerbaijani language uses 3: Latin script, Cyrillic script and Perso-Arabic script) - if you have any idea how to make their logo look like then?
Let's you try to learn the Serbian language in its basic alphabet - Cyrillic, and it will be great! --CarRadovan (разговор) 17:05, 6. јун 2014. (CEST)
I posted this before the other one in Serbian. The discussion is over anyway. By the way, I know Cyrillic, you go learn English please :)--Albatalad (разговор) 22:06, 6. јун 2014. (CEST)

Dear editor Albatalad, please improve your English skills before you decide to use it --ΝικόλαςΜπ. (разговор) 23:40, 6. јун 2014. (CEST)

Dear editor Nikola, please point out 1 spelling or grammatical mistake in what I wrote. Your friend Radovan wrote one sentence that makes no sense maybe tell him to learn English too?
"if you have any idea how to make their logo look like then?" Maybe you Dr. English can explain to me what that means?
Pozz-- (разговор) 12:07, 7. јун 2014. (CEST)--Albatalad (разговор) 12:18, 7. јун 2014. (CEST)
For the record, I speak 4 languages, last thing I want is some random guy on the internet (who hardly speaks one language) acting smart. When you score higher than 8.5 in IELTS come mock my "English skills". End the discussion please.-- (разговор) 12:16, 7. јун 2014. (CEST)--Albatalad (разговор) 12:18, 7. јун 2014. (CEST)
Do you count Serbian as one of those four languages? Самарџија (разговор) 14:54, 7. јун 2014. (CEST)

Here we go again :( 4 languages? Wooooow. BTW I think that Russian Wikipedia need latin script. And Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese too. What do you think about my proposal? --ΝικόλαςΜπ. (разговор) 21:40, 7. јун 2014. (CEST)

You know better than I do that Serbian language is practically the only bi-scriptal/ bi-alphabetical language in the world, so please cut it out because it undermines your mental abilities. Enough with meaningless discussions please. I'm done.--Albatalad (разговор) 21:57, 7. јун 2014. (CEST)
Dear Albatalad, as much as I appreciate your efforts and the good faith they come from, you must drop your attitude now. It's because you are approaching or you'd already crossed the good manners limit (en:WP:NPA), therefore please be careful what you post next. --СлободанKovačevićбиблброKS 22:26, 7. јун 2014. (CEST)
My apologies, they started the hostile attitude for a simple proposal I made and turned it into a rather personal attack, I was only defending myself. I apologize for every Wikipedia user who had to view our meaningless discussions.--Albatalad (разговор) 13:54, 8. јун 2014. (CEST)

Media Viewer is now live on this wiki[уреди]

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 MediaWiki.org 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) 23:54, 19. јун 2014. (CEST)

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decisions[уреди]

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 change.org.

Process ideas for software development[уреди]

’’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 00:15, 22. август 2014. (CEST)
