Архива посебних форума[уреди]

Недавно сам архивирао садржај са посебних форума (Политика, Техника, Предлози, Помоћ, Разно) на архивску страницу Викиновости:Форум/Архива 11. Посебне форумске странице се дужи низ година ионако нису нешто значајно попуниле због малог броја уредника. Данас је такво стање нарочито изражено тако да је најбоље да се засебни форуми не користе већ да се све евентуалне форумске теме јединствено расправљају на овој општој страници. --Жељко Тодоровић (разговор) 17:40, 7. новембар 2019.

ВАЖНО: Преглед активности администратора[уреди]

Здраво. Правило везано за уклањање "напредних права" (попут администратора, бирократа, итд.) је усвојено глобалним консензусом заједнице 2013-те године. Према овом правилу, стјуарди проверавају администраторску активност на свим викијима Викимедијине Фондације без правила везаних за неактивност. Према нашем најбољем сазнању, ваш вики нема формалан процес за уклањање "напредних права" неактивним налозима. Ово значи да ће се стјуарди за ово побринути према прегледу администраторске активности.

Утврдили смо да следећи корисници испуњавају критеријуме неактивности (без измена и без забележених акција више од две године):

  1. BokicaK (администратор)

Наведени корисници ће ускоро примити обавештење, тражећи од њих да започну дискусију заједнице уколико желе да задрже нека или сва своја права. Уколико корисници не одговоре, онда ће њихова напредна права бити уклоњена од стране стјуарда.

Међутим, ако бисте као заједница желели да креирате властити процес прегледа активности који замењује глобални, желите да донесете још једну одлуку о неактивним носиоцима права, или већ имате политику коју смо пропустили, молимо Вас да нас у том случају обавестите на стјуарде на Мета-викију тако да знамо да не треба наставити са разматрањем права на вашем викију.

Possible copyright issues[уреди]

Hello. I may not speak Serbian, but I checked the article "Награде 15. Јоакимфеста" created by Струјајое. According to copyvio tool, the article must have been most likely exact match to an article by JoakimVujic.com.

Other articles by Струјајое:

Copyvio tool detected an article "Ista Aksa, novi doživljaj - Jedinstveno iskustvo kupovine u novom konceptu Aksa prodavnice", created by PRobjave, to have an exact match with ProBjave.com article, which was posted five days prior to the Wikinews article.

If I receive replies, I will check out other articles. Pinging admins Djordjes, Dungodung, FriedrickMILBarbarossa, Kizule, Laslovarga, Жељко Тодоровић, Ранко Николић. --George Ho (разговор) 21:31, 26. новембар 2020. (UTC)Одговори

Hello George Ho, User:PRobjave is probably owner of the probjave.com, I'm not sure, older admins know it better, but I know that user is someone from site probjave.com, so for it, you no need to worry. :)
For first one, medium.com took the content from the joakimvujic.com. I'm not sure that we have permission, it is question for User:Струјајое.
For second one, I think that case is same.

Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globally[уреди]

Помозите у превођењу на свој језик

Hello everyone,

I apologize for posting in English. I would like to inform everyone that I created a new global request for comment (GRFC) at Meta Wiki, which may affect your project: m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

In this GRFC, I propose that two-project shortcuts for project names will become a default alias for the project namespace. For instance, on all Wikipedias, WP will be an alias to the Wikipedia: namespace (and similar for other projects). Full list is available in the GRFC.

This is already the case for Wikivoyages, and many individual projects asked for this alias to be implemented. I believe this makes it easier to access the materials in the project namespace, as well as creating shortcuts like WP:NPOV, as well as helps new projects to use this feature, without having to figure out how to request site configuration changes first.

As far as I can see, Викиновости currently does not have such an alias set. This means that such an alias will be set for you, if the GRFC is accepted by the global community.

I would like to ask all community members to participate in the request for comment at Meta-Wiki, see m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions about this proposal.

Best regards,

Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election has come to an end[уреди]

Thank you for participating in the 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election! Voting closed August 31 at 23:59. The official data, including the four most voted candidates, will be announced as soon as the Elections Committee completes their review of the ballots. The official announcement of the new trustees appointed will happen later, once the selected candidates have been confirmed by the Board.

6,946 community members from 216 wiki projects have voted. This makes 10.2% global participation, 1.1% higher than in the last Board elections. In 2017, 5167 people from 202 wiki projects cast their vote. A full analysis is planned to be published in a few days when the confirmed results are announced. In the meantime, you can check the data produced during the election.

Diversity was an important goal with these elections. Messages about the Board election were translated into 61 languages. This outreach worked well. There were 70 communities with eligible voters voting in this election for the first time. With your help, next year’s Board of Trustees election will be even better.

Upcoming Call for Feedback about the Board of Trustees elections[уреди]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

The Board of Trustees is preparing a call for feedback about the upcoming Board Elections, from January 7 - February 10, 2022.

While details will be finalized the week before the call, we have confirmed at least two questions that will be asked during this call for feedback:

  • What is the best way to ensure fair representation of emerging communities among the Board?
  • What involvement should candidates have during the election?

While additional questions may be added, the Movement Strategy and Governance team wants to provide time for community members and affiliates to consider and prepare ideas on the confirmed questions before the call opens. We apologize for not having a complete list of questions at this time. The list of questions should only grow by one or two questions. The intention is to not overwhelm the community with requests, but provide notice and welcome feedback on these important questions.

Do you want to help organize local conversation during this Call?

Contact the Movement Strategy and Governance team on Meta, on Telegram, or via email at msg(_AT_)wikimedia.org.

Reach out if you have any questions or concerns. The Movement Strategy and Governance team will be minimally staffed until January 3. Please excuse any delayed response during this time. We also recognize some community members and affiliates are offline during the December holidays. We apologize if our message has reached you while you are on holiday.

Best,

Movement Strategy and Governance

The Vector 2022 skin as the default in two weeks?[уреди]

The slides for our presentation at Wikimania 2022

Hello. I'm writing on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Web team. In two weeks, we would like to make the Vector 2022 skin the default on this wiki.

We have been working on it for the past three years. So far, it has been the default on more than 30 wikis, including sister projects, all accounting for more than 1 billion pageviews per month. On average 87% of active logged-in users of those wikis use Vector 2022.

It would become the default for all logged-out users, and also all logged-in users who currently use Vector legacy. Logged-in users can at any time switch to any other skins. No changes are expected for users of these skins.

About the skin[уреди]

[Why is a change necessary] The current default skin meets the needs of the readers and editors as these were 13 years ago. Since then, new users have begun using Wikimedia projects. The old Vector doesn't meet their needs.

[Objective] The objective for the new skin is to make the interface more welcoming and comfortable for readers and useful for advanced users. It draws inspiration from previous requests, the Community Wishlist Surveys, and gadgets and scripts. The work helped our code follow the standards and improve all other skins. We reduced PHP code in Wikimedia deployed skins by 75%. The project has also focused on making it easier to support gadgets and use APIs.

[Changes and test results] The skin introduces a series of changes that improve readability and usability. The new skin does not remove any functionality currently available on the Vector skin.

  • The sticky header makes it easier to find tools that editors use often. It decreases scrolling to the top of the page by 16%.
  • The new table of contents makes it easier to navigate to different sections. Readers and editors jumped to different sections of the page 50% more than with the old table of contents. It also looks a bit different on talk pages.
  • The new search bar is easier to find and makes it easier to find the correct search result from the list. This increased the amount of searches started by 30% on the wikis we tested on.
  • The skin does not negatively affect pageviews, edit rates, or account creation. There is evidence of increases in pageviews and account creation across partner communities.

[Try it out] Try out the new skin by going to the appearance tab in your preferences and selecting Vector 2022 from the list of skins.

How can editors change and customize this skin?[уреди]

It's possible to configure and personalize our changes. We support volunteers who create new gadgets and user scripts. Check out our repository for a list of currently available customizations, or add your own.

Our plan[уреди]

If no large concerns are raised, we plan on deploying in the week of October 3, 2022. If your community would like to request more time to discuss the changes, hit the button and write to us. We can adjust the calendar.

If you'd like ask our team anything, if you have questions, concerns, or additional thoughts, please ping me here or write on the talk page of the project. We will gladly answer! Also, see our FAQ. Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 04:14, 22. септембар 2022. (UTC)Одговори

Wikinews Interlingual Association idea Contact[уреди]

Hello. I am a senior user from Chinese Wikinews. I want to strengthen the links between the Wikinews language communities and develop an excellent citizen news platform. Does it include the possibility of setting up a Telegram group to communicate with each other? Original reports or news about different languages, and news reports of news value are published in the group, so that everyone can know and translate each other. I also hope to strengthen contacts with projects in various Wikinews languages for a long time, and even establish a Wikinews Association to help our journalists facilitate the development of our projects, which may include applying for funding from the foundation, writing reports better, including original reporting projects, for public welfare, and better. Let our news agency reporters go to other places to interview, including bonuses, travel expenses, transportation expenses, and meals? In fact, I hope that if these reporting expenses can receive a foundation subsidy, in fact, journalists may focus more on original reporting, and they should do so! I thought it might be better to open a Wikinews Association across languages. I use Chinese as my mother tongue, so there may be some mistakes in English. If you don't understand, you are welcome to communicate, especially in simple English. Thank you very much!

Original reporting is in fact what media organizations should do more, because now many journalists' associations and experts criticize everyone for doing real-time news, and I do real-time news, which results in the lack of room for public attention or news stories that should be reported in depth, so this mentality is unfavorable to the media environment and the public.

Establishing an association to help Wikinews can provide more room for the platform to be upgraded and make it more convenient for our journalists to move. The establishment of associations can further unite the community, hold activities, vigorously develop Wikinews projects, and even launch a series of reports, so that we can no longer have a single report, enhance the credibility of our media from the public, and be more popular.

Wikinews is a very suitable project for cross-language associations, because we are all doing the same thing and reporting around the world. It is one of the purposes of public broadcasting organizations to focus on diversified reports and public interest reports. — Kitabc12345 (разговор) 13:01, 18. јануар 2023. (UTC)Одговори

Seeking volunteers for the next step in the Universal Code of Conduct process[уреди]

Hello,

As follow-up to the message about the Universal Code of Conduct Enforcement Guidelines by Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees Vice Chair, Shani Evenstein Sigalov, I am reaching out about the next steps. I want to bring your attention to the next stage of the Universal Code of Conduct process, which is forming a building committee for the Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C). I invite community members with experience and deep interest in community health and governance to nominate themselves to be part of the U4C building committee, which needs people who are:

  • Community members in good standing
  • Knowledgeable about movement community processes, such as, but not limited to, policy drafting, participatory decision making, and application of existing rules and policies on Wikimedia projects

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hello there,

We are glad to announce the new members and advisors of the Elections Committee. The Elections Committee assists with the design and implementation of the process to select Community- and Affiliate-Selected trustees for the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. After an open nomination process, the strongest candidates spoke with the Board and four candidates were asked to join the Elections Committee. Four other candidates were asked to participate as advisors.

Thank you to all the community members who submitted their names for consideration. We look forward to working with the Elections Committee in the near future.

Review the Charter for the Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee[уреди]

Hello all,

I am pleased to share the next step in the Universal Code of Conduct work. The Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C) draft charter is now ready for your review.

The Enforcement Guidelines require a Building Committee form to draft a charter that outlines procedures and details for a global committee to be called the Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C). Over the past few months, the U4C Building Committee worked together as a group to discuss and draft the U4C charter. The U4C Building Committee welcomes feedback about the draft charter now through 22 September 2023. After that date, the U4C Building Committee will revise the charter as needed and a community vote will open shortly afterward.

Join the conversation during the conversation hours or on Meta-wiki.

Best,

RamzyM (WMF), on behalf of the U4C Building Committee, 15:35, 28. август 2023. (UTC)Одговори

The Vector 2022 skin as the default in two weeks?[уреди]

Read this in your languageПомозите у превођењу на свој језик • Please tell other users about these changes

Hello. I'm writing on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Web team. In two weeks, we would like to make the Vector 2022 skin the default on this wiki.

Глобална подешавања

If you prefer keeping the current skin select "Vector legacy (2010)" on the appearance tab of the global preferences and save the change. We encourage you to give the new skin a try, though.

Since I last came to you with this question, many things have changed. The skin is now the default on most Wikipedias, and all logos are done! We have also made some tweaks in the skin itself. Below is the text I've sent to you once, but I'm sending it again, just slightly edited, for those who haven't seen it.

If you know what this is about, jump straight to the section "Our plan":

It would become the default for all logged-out users, and also all logged-in users who currently use Vector legacy as a local (but not global) preference. Logged-in users can at any time switch to any other skin. No changes are expected for these skins.

About the skin[уреди]

Slides to our Wikimania 2022 presentation. You may also listen to the recording on YouTube (in English).

[Why is a change necessary] When the current default skin was created, it reflected the needs of the readers and editors as these were 14 years ago. Since then, new users have begun using the Internet and Wikimedia projects in different ways. The old Vector does not meet their needs.

[Objective] The objective for the Vector 2022 skin is to make the interface more welcoming and comfortable for readers and useful for advanced users. It introduces a series of changes that aim to improve problems new and existing readers and editors were having with the old skin. It draws inspiration from previous user requests, the Community Wishlist Surveys, and gadgets and scripts. The work helped our code follow the standards and improve all other skins. The PHP code in the other available skins has been reduced by 75%. The project has also focused on making it easier to support gadgets and use APIs.

[Changes in a nutshell] The skin introduces changes that improve readability and usability. The new skin does not remove any functionality currently available on the Vector skin.

  • The limited width and pin-able menus allow to adjust the interface to the screen size, and focus on editing or reading. Logged-in and logged-out users may use a toggle button to keep the full width, though.
  • The sticky header makes it easier to find tools that editors use often. It decreases scrolling to the top of the page by 16%.
  • The new table of contents makes it easier to navigate to different sections. Readers and editors jump to different sections of the page 50% more than with the old table of contents. It also looks a bit different on talk pages.
  • The new search bar is easier to find and makes it easier to find the correct search result from the list. This increased the amount of searches started by 30% on the tested wikis.
  • The skin does not negatively affect pageviews, edit rates, or account creation. There is evidence of increases in pageviews and account creation across partner communities.

[Customize this skin] It's possible to configure and personalize our changes. We support volunteers who create new gadgets and user scripts. Check out the repository for a list of currently available customizations and changes, or add your own.

Our plan[уреди]

If no large concerns are raised, we plan on deploying on 31 October. If you'd like to ask our team anything, if you have questions, concerns, or additional thoughts, please comment in any language. If this is the first comment to my message, make sure to ping me. We will gladly answer! Also, check out our FAQ. Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (разговор) 23:52, 18. октобар 2023. (UTC)Одговори

Update of license[уреди]

Some time ago there was a discussion on meta about how to implement the license update to CC BY-SA 4.0 on all wikis. See m:Meta:Babel/Archives/2023-06#Aftermath_of_ToU_updates.

Wikinews use the license CC BY 2.5. So it does not have the SA part and it is an older version.

I would like to ask why Wikinews does not follow WMF and most other wiki projects. Is there a good reason or is it simply because noone thought about updating the license?

Unless there is a good reason I suggest to update the license to follow WMF.

There is a formal vote on English WN to change to the new license at en:Wikinews:Water_cooler/policy#Update_of_license.

I hope you would use that opportunity to update license here too. --MGA73 (разговор) 13:42, 15. децембар 2023. (UTC)Одговори

Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees 2024 Selection[уреди]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Dear all,

This year, the term of 4 (four) Community- and Affiliate-selected Trustees on the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees will come to an end [1]. The Board invites the whole movement to participate in this year’s selection process and vote to fill those seats.

The Elections Committee will oversee this process with support from Foundation staff [2]. The Board Governance Committee created a Board Selection Working Group from Trustees who cannot be candidates in the 2024 community- and affiliate-selected trustee selection process composed of Dariusz Jemielniak, Nataliia Tymkiv, Esra'a Al Shafei, Kathy Collins, and Shani Evenstein Sigalov [3]. The group is tasked with providing Board oversight for the 2024 trustee selection process, and for keeping the Board informed. More details on the roles of the Elections Committee, Board, and staff are here [4].

Here are the key planned dates:

  • May 2024: Call for candidates and call for questions
  • June 2024: Affiliates vote to shortlist 12 candidates (no shortlisting if 15 or less candidates apply) [5]
  • June-August 2024: Campaign period
  • End of August / beginning of September 2024: Two-week community voting period
  • October–November 2024: Background check of selected candidates
  • Board's Meeting in December 2024: New trustees seated

Learn more about the 2024 selection process - including the detailed timeline, the candidacy process, the campaign rules, and the voter eligibility criteria - on this Meta-wiki page, and make your plan.

Election Volunteers

Another way to be involved with the 2024 selection process is to be an Election Volunteer. Election Volunteers are a bridge between the Elections Committee and their respective community. They help ensure their community is represented and mobilize them to vote. Learn more about the program and how to join on this Meta-wiki page.

[5] Even though the ideal number is 12 candidates for 4 open seats, the shortlisting process will be triggered if there are more than 15 candidates because the 1-3 candidates that are removed might feel ostracized and it would be a lot of work for affiliates to carry out the shortlisting process to only eliminate 1-3 candidates from the candidate list.
