Update on IPv6[編集]

(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.

音楽のカテゴリで、「船頭小唄」が著作権切れ。と表示されています。このメロディを五線譜にする方法はありますか? 入力する方法があれば、譜面にしてアップロードできます。典籍ほたるトーク) 2012年6月4日 (月) 02:36 (UTC)返信[返信]

底本となる楽譜があり、現在それが著作権保護の対象となっていないことが前提ですが、楽譜を直接スキャンしないのであれば楽譜作成ソフトを利用することになるでしょう。フリーソフトではFinale NotePad、Studio ftn Score Editor、MuseScoreなどがあります。画像はCommonsにアップロードし、ウィキソース上に呼び出すことになります(ヘルプ:ファイルを追加するを参照)。
なお、ウィキソースに画像を呼び出す際には底本の整合性に注意する必要があります。船頭小唄の場合、歌詞の底本はLPの歌詞カードとなっていますので、楽譜の底本が同一の歌詞カードでなければ、ページの構成を改めるなどして底本が異なることを明示した方がよいと思います(例:君が代)。--庚寅五月トーク) 2012年6月6日 (水) 20:14 (UTC)返信[返信]

2011 Picture of the Year competition[編集]


Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2011 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We are interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year 2011. Any user registered at Commons or a Wikimedia wiki SUL-related to Commons with more than 75 edits before 1 April 2012 (UTC) is welcome to vote and, of course everyone is welcome to view!

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 2012年6月5日 (火) 18:24 (UTC)

Mobile view as default view coming soon[編集]

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

The mobile view of this project and others will soon become the default view on mobile devices (except tablets). Some language versions of these projects currently show no content on the mobile home page, and it is a good time to do a little formatting so users get a mobile-friendly view, or to add to existing mobile content if some already exists.

If you are an administrator, please consider helping with this change. There are instructions which are being translated. The proposed date of switching the default view is June 21.

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

(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.

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

(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[編集]

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 All countries needed (excepting USA)!

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.

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

(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.

Wikisourceはsourceの蓄積を目的に作られているプロジェクトですが、現在法令などでは1ページに記述され改正が行われるとその文章を書き換えるという方法が用いられているように存じます。今回質問というか提案というかを行いたいのは、法令は改正されることがあります。しかし新しい法令だけに価値があるのではなく改正前の条文にもsourceとしての価値があるのではないかと私は考えます。今回利用者:Eadeamさんによって、特定多国籍企業による研究開発事業等の促進に関する特別措置法が投稿されました。その文章を下にして各条をサブページ化し読み込んだこちらのページをテストとして作ってみました(編集画面もご確認ください)。法令の改正時にはサブページを編集するのではなく、新たにサブページを作成しそれを本文ページに{{/○○}}として置き換えることで改正にも対応しますし、wikibooksなどの他プロジェクトで使用する場合も条文ごとにリンクをすることができます。また、id属性などを付与しなくても同様な効果も持たすことができるのではと考えますのでネット初心者にもハードルは低くなるのではないかと考えます。現在のWikisource:記事作成のガイドライン_(法令)草案とはかけ離れたものであるのは重々承知ですがこういった手法は否定されるものなのかお教えいただければと存じます。なお、この手法は法令だけではなく、個別に参照されることが期待できるようなものに適用しても調べやすさなどが増していいのではないかとも考えます。ご意見賜われればと存じます。--Vigorous action (会話/履歴) 2013年4月14日 (日) 10:07 (UTC)返信[返信]

サブページを読み込んでメインページを構成する方式については否定されるものではないと思いますが、読み込み先で底本の整合性が取れなくなることがないよう注意が必要でしょう。--庚寅五月 (トーク) 2013年4月21日 (日) 15:22 (UTC)返信[返信]
底本と言われますが、すべての法律の原典は官報ですから、官報に沿った記述であれば問題はないかと存じます。さらに、ひとつのページに表示されるものは、ひとつの底本によらなければならないといった取り決めもないです。たとえば改正○○法と呼ばれるような法律が公布され「○○を△△に読み替える」と書かれている場合、その法律の文章を出版社等は編集して新たな法律文として出版することもあります。これらは法律の原典の複製であるとは厳密には言えません。言ってみれば改正された法律の法律書自体はすでに底本の合成であるということです。(例:刑法や刑事訴訟法の条文に書かれているような場金額は罰金等臨時措置法により変更されています。出版物によってはこれらを読み替えて記載しているものや、注釈をつけているものも存在します。)なお、法制局などの見解では法律文などでは縦書きの為「右に定める」とかいった書き方がありますが、横書きなどの場合では表示上行うことがむつかしいことがありますこういった場合は、例えば「上(原典:右に)にさだむる」と書き換えることは問題がないとみなされるようです。--Vigorous action (会話/履歴) 2013年4月29日 (月) 05:17 (UTC)返信[返信]
現行法文参照の必要から、法令集が溶け込み条文を掲載することは理解できるのですが、これはつまり原典の収録という範疇に収まらないと言えるのではないでしょうか(厳密に原典を収録するとすれば、溶け込み条文ではなく制定時の全文と改正時の改め文が収録されるでしょう)。ウィキソースで複数の底本を用いること自体は否定されるものでないと思いますが、本文を構成し直すことまで許容されるのかどうかは議論の余地があるのではないかと思います。--庚寅五月 (トーク) 2013年4月29日 (月) 20:46 (UTC)返信[返信]

[en] Change to section edit links[編集]

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.

Notifications will inform users about new activity that affects them on this wiki in a unified way: for example, this new tool will let you know when you have new talk page messages, edit reverts, mentions or links -- and is designed to augment (rather than replace) the watchlist. The Wikimedia Foundation's editor engagement team developed this tool (code-named 'Echo') earlier this year, to help users contribute more productively to MediaWiki projects.

We're now getting ready to bring Notifications to almost all other Wikimedia sites, and are aiming for a 22 October deployment, as outlined in this release plan. It is important that notifications is translated for all of the languages we serve.

There are three major points of translation needed to be either done or checked:

名前空間の運用についてご意見を伺いたいです。ウィキソースに名前空間が導入されている以上、標準名前空間には資料そのもののページ(資料の一部としての目次のページを含む)を割り当て、それ以外の文書はWikisource名前空間などを用いる、というような運用が念頭に置かれているのではないかと思うのですが、現状では標準名前空間に索引や作者別作品リスト(Author page)が存在しています(Wikisource:索引類カテゴリ:作者以下参照)。索引については、どのような名前空間を採用したらよいかという議論が過去にあり、結論が出ていないようなのですが(Wikisource:井戸端(仮)/Archive3#索引類の置き場所)、さしあたり標準名前空間にある索引はWikisource名前空間に移動し、作者別作品リストについては「作者」名前空間を導入した方がよいのではないでしょうか。--庚寅五月 (トーク) 2013年10月19日 (土) 12:20 (UTC)返信[返信]

索引に就いて、英語版はもうPortal名前空間に入れている様です(en:Portal:Portals)。簡易に済むのはWikisource名前空間への移動ですが、作者名前空間を導入するなら、同時に導入するのも有りかもしれません。--kahusi (會話) 2013年10月21日 (月) 10:32 (UTC)返信[返信]


日本語版には作者別作品リスト(Author page)が本格的に導入されていないようですが、この種のリストの役割は、ウィキソースに収録されている作品へのリンク集と、収録されていないが受け入れ可能な作品のリストとを兼ねることにあるのであって、ウィキソースの収録作品とは無関係な著作目録・外部リンク集とすることはウィキソースの趣旨にそぐわないのではないかと思います(Wikisource:ウィキソースとは何か#何を取り入れるかの「ウィキソースにおいて特集された著者の著書目録」という一文は“作品がウィキソースに収録されている著者の目録は受け入れる/そうでないものは受け入れない”と解釈できます)。百田尚樹のような文書はウィキペディアに掲載すべきではないでしょうか。--庚寅五月 (トーク) 2013年10月19日 (土) 12:32 (UTC)返信[返信]

意見に同意します。英語版だとen:Template:Semi-copyvio authorというテンプレートはありますが、一部の著作が該当する様な著者の記事に使用している様です。例:en:Author:Ronald Reagan --kahusi (會話) 2013年10月21日 (月) 10:32 (UTC)返信[返信]


ウィキソースは新参者ですが。さて、二件、議案を出します。 「日本の条約」カテゴリは各時代別に細分類されていますが、最近に定義文を「「条約」という法形式で公布」と限定されました。ただ条約は「条約」という名称でなくても(「協定」「協約」「宣言」など)「条約」ですので上のように「条約」呼称に限って細分類するのは意味がないと思われます。

カテゴリ:日本の条約については、カテゴリ:条約の下位カテゴリという面から見るとご指摘の通り「条約」形式に限定できないですが、カテゴリ:日本の法令 (種類別)の下位カテゴリという面から見ると「条約」という形式に限定する必要があり、「条約」形式とそうでないものを簡単に区別できないかと但書きを加えてみた次第だったのですが、ずいぶん苦しい区分になってしまいました。カテゴリ:日本の条約カテゴリ:日本の条約 (法形式)のようなカテゴリ構造を作れば整合性は取れそうなのですが、少くとも現状では過剰な細分化になりそうです。ご指摘を受け、但書きによる区分をなくした上で“「条約」形式以外の条約を含む”旨の但書きを付け、便宜的にカテゴリ:日本の法令 (種類別)の下位カテゴリとして使用する、というのが穏当かもしれないなと考えているのですが、ご意見をいただければ幸いです。
大韓帝国カテゴリに関しては、李氏朝鮮は国号ではなく王朝名であり、大韓帝国はその一時期だという認識だったのですが(ウィキペディアのカテゴリを見てもそのようになっています)、この認識に間違いがありますでしょうか。--庚寅五月 (トーク) 2013年10月20日 (日) 12:45 (UTC)返信[返信]
条約カテゴリに関しては元に戻される事を期待します。別に「カテゴリ:日本の条約 (法形式)」を立てられる事には反対しません。


--夾竹桃 (トーク) 2013年10月21日 (月) 08:46 (UTC)返信[返信]
カテゴリ:大韓帝国の条約については、カテゴリ:李氏朝鮮の条約に分類しないのは「李氏朝鮮」の枠組みとの整合性が取れなくなるため反対ですが、カテゴリ:朝鮮の条約カテゴリ:李氏朝鮮の条約の両方に分類するということであれば、現状では異論はありません(ただ、朝鮮史に関する文書が今後増えていき、カテゴリ:三国時代 (朝鮮)のような時代別のカテゴリが設けられていった場合に、カテゴリ:朝鮮が原則として時代別に区分されるのか国別に区分されるのかによって、再検討される余地があるかもしれません。時代別に区分するという考え方をとる場合、カテゴリ:李氏朝鮮内でカテゴリ:大韓帝国だけが分けられ、これに則って条約カテゴリが区分されていたとしても、李氏朝鮮期の時代区分として大韓帝国という枠組みを設けることが有用であれば、分類の意味をなさない、ということはないでしょう)。--庚寅五月 (トーク) 2013年10月22日 (火) 13:50 (UTC)返信[返信]
では、<案2>のように区分する事にしましょう。時代別か国号別かの悩みは棚上げで。この悩みが出るほど記事が増える事を願って。--夾竹桃 (トーク) 2013年10月22日 (火) 16:45 (UTC)返信[返信]

Introducting Beta Features[編集]

(Apologies for writing in English. Please translate if necessary)

We would like to let you know about Beta Features, a new program from the Wikimedia Foundation that lets you try out new features before they are released for everyone.

Think of it as a digital laboratory where community members can preview upcoming software and give feedback to help improve them. This special preference page lets designers and engineers experiment with new features on a broad scale, but in a way that's not disruptive.

Beta Features is now ready for testing on It will also be released on Wikimedia Commons and MetaWiki this Thursday, 7 November. Based on test results, the plan is to release it on all wikis worldwide on 21 November, 2013.

Here are the first features you can test this week:

Would you like to try out Beta Features now? After you log in on, a small 'Beta' link will appear next to your 'Preferences'. Click on it to see features you can test, check the ones you want, then click 'Save'. Learn more on the Beta Features page.

After you've tested Beta Features, please let the developers know what you think on this discussion page -- or report any bugs here on Bugzilla. You're also welcome to join this IRC office hours chat on Friday, 8 November at 18:30 UTC.

Beta Features was developed by the Wikimedia Foundation's Design, Multimedia and VisualEditor teams. Along with other developers, they will be adding new features to this experimental program every few weeks. They are very grateful to all the community members who helped create this project — and look forward to many more productive collaborations in the future.

Enjoy, and don't forget to let developers know what you think! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 2013年11月5日 (火) 20:09 (UTC)返信[返信]

Reminder: Wikidata coming on January 14th[編集]

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


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

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

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

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

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

Cheers Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) 2013年12月29日 (日) 19:34 (UTC)返信[返信]

Wikidata is here![編集]

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?[編集]

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) 2014年1月16日 (木) 06:46 (UTC)返信[返信]

Access to data in Wikidata[編集]

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.

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

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[編集]

You can now access the data on Wikidata[編集]

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[編集]

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 Wikisource 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!

Proposed optional changes to Terms of Use amendment[編集]

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[編集]

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.

For more information:

Media Viewer[編集]

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) 2014年5月23日 (金) 21:29 (UTC)返信[返信]

Media Viewer is now live on this wiki[編集]

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) 2014年6月19日 (木) 21:54 (UTC)返信[返信]

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decisions[編集]

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

Meta RfCs on two new global groups[編集]

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.

Global AbuseFilter[編集]


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.
