Vicí na mBan[athraigh foinse]

A chairde, ba mhaith liom sibhse a chur ar an eolas maidir le tionscadal nua atá ar siúl. Vicí na mBan, nó WikiWomen, is ainm do. Is comhfhiontar é idir Pobal Éireann Wikimedia, Coláiste Oiriall i Muineachán agus eagraíochtaí Vicipéide agus meánscoileanna sa Fhreaslainn agus i dTír na mBascach. Le linn na tionscadail seo, beidh muid ag cruthú acmhainní teagaisc ionas go mbeidh daltaí meánscoileanna in ann ailt Vicipéide a scríobh as Gaeilge, as Freaslainnis nó as Bascais faoi mhná iomráiteacha. Beidh na daltaí ag foghlaim faoi Vicipéid ón mí seo chugainn ar aghaidh agus tosóidh siad ag scríobh sa bhliain úr. Tá breis eolais ar fáil as Béarla ar an leathanach Meta: Tá fáilte roimh cheisteanna agus bharúlacha chugamsa ar Vicipéid nó seolaigí r-phost chugainn: wikimediaireland[at] Dowlinme (plé) 17:00, 28 Deireadh Fómhair 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Mar uasdátú beag agaibh, bhí ceardlann Vicipéide againn leis na daltaí scoile agus rinne siad iarracht ailt bheaga a chruthú ar imreoirí Foireann sacair ban na hÉireann. Go raibh maith agaibh ar bhur bhfoighne agus iad ag foghlaim conas Vicipéid a chur in eagar. Dowlinme (plé) 19:07, 8 Samhain 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This cooperation with the secondary school Oiriall was a disaster. It left a whole bunch of unfinished pages... some were thankfully short... others longer and written in pidgin.
Maureen Potter, so far (as there are a lot more to go through), has been one of the best, but still required extensive editing.

And who does this editing ?
The school, the schoolteachers, Dowlinme ... ? No, me. Grrr ǃ
It seems I am just about the only person here who cares enough and has the skills to tidy up.

Most of the pages were left with a model in English and some text in Irish.
If it is just to create a biography with one or two lines, I don t see how that helps the Vicipéid or women. Might as well not start. None of the students it seems (from what I have gone through so far ) had the ability to write articles, let alone source material (much easier to write if able to research material as Gaeilge).
@Dowlinme Please, if you are not ready to take the time to tidy up afterwards, then don't launch projects such as this again.

TGcoa (plé) 19:15, 13 Márta 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@TGcoa the project is not finished for this year, it will be finished at the end of this month at which time the teachers will comb through the articles along with Alison and Kevin, who have kindly offered to look through all of them as well. Reaching out and asking us for an update would have been a far more productive thing. If you want to talk to someone about this project, that would be me, Dowlinme was kindly volunteering with Wikimedia Community Ireland and the project last year. We are in the pilot phase currently, so any of these initial issues will be ironed out in the future.
I disagree with you completely on your stance on stubs (here and below), stubs are a useful way in for new editors and serve to demonstrate what content can be worked on (not everyone comes to editing with a defined subject interest). Welsh Wikipedia have also managed to have a 50/50 gender divide in their biographies through the strategic use of stub articles to seed content for editors to develop further, and also work very well with Wikidata to lift the burden on individual editors. If you're not interested in the gender gap, that is not an issue, but this project is.
As @Alison has mentioned below, unless the Vicipéid community comes to a consensus about not wanting stubs or starts dictating the level of language ability welcomed, then that is something we would consider in relation to the Irish language outreach we conduct.
Other language from Welsh to Albanian have very successfully worked with primary and secondary school students, and other members of the Vicipéid community are willing to work with this group, and I'm very grateful to them. As Alison mentioned, she has created a maintenance category for the articles created, so you can avoid any of that content and leave it to the editors who want to work with the students. Any articles that are not developed or just have placeholder text can be deleted or otherwise remediated at the end of the project period. Smirkybec (plé) 17:05, 14 Márta 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Invitation to attend “Ask Me Anything about Movement Charter” Sessions[athraigh foinse]

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

Hello all,

During the 2022 Wikimedia Summit, the Movement Charter Drafting Committee (MCDC) presented the first outline of the Movement Charter, giving a glimpse on the direction of its future work, and the Charter itself. The MCDC then integrated the initial feedback collected during the Summit. Before proceeding with writing the Charter for the whole Movement, the MCDC wants to interact with community members and gather feedback on the drafts of the three sections: Preamble, Values & Principles, and Roles & Responsibilities (intentions statement). The Movement Charter drafts will be available on the Meta page here on November 14, 2022. Community wide consultation period on MC will take place from November 20 to December 18, 2022. Learn more about it here.

With the goal of ensuring that people are well informed to fully participate in the conversations and are empowered to contribute their perspective on the Movement Charter, three “Ask Me Anything about Movement Charter" sessions have been scheduled in different time zones. Everyone in the Wikimedia Movement is invited to attend these conversations. The aim is to learn about Movement Charter - its goal, purpose, why it matters, and how it impacts your community. MCDC members will attend these sessions to answer your questions and hear community feedback.

The “Ask Me Anything” sessions accommodate communities from different time zones. Only the presentation of the session is recorded and shared afterwards, no recording of conversations. Below is the list of planned events:

  • Asia/Pacific: November 4, 2022 at 09:00 UTC (your local time). Interpretation is available in Chinese and Japanese.
  • Europe/MENA/Sub Saharan Africa: November 12, 2022 at 15:00 UTC (your local time). Interpretation is available in Arabic, French and Russian.
  • North and South America/ Western Europe: November 12, 2022 at 15:00 UTC (your local time). Interpretation is available in Spanish and Portuguese.

On the Meta page you will find more details; Zoom links will be shared 48 hours ahead of the call.

Call for Movement Charter Ambassadors

Individuals or groups from all communities who wish to help include and start conversations in their communities on the Movement Charter are encouraged to become Movement Charter Ambassadors (MC Ambassadors). MC Ambassadors will carry out their own activities and get financial support for enabling conversations in their own languages. Regional facilitators from the Movement Strategy and Governance team are available to support applicants with MC Ambassadors grantmaking. If you are interested please sign up here. Should you have specific questions, please reach out to the MSG team via email: or on the MS forum.

We thank you for your time and participation.

Response to UK Gov's: Minority languages of the nations of Britain[athraigh foinse]

Dydh da: maidin mhaith! Once again: apologies for writing in English.

Wikimedia UK wish to respond to the UK Government's 'call to evidence' re its Inquiry on Minority languages. To this end, Wikimedia UK's CEO Lucy Compton-Reid will chair a Zoom meeting to collect our thoughts, and publish our response. Her request follows:

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) of the UK government is currently running an Inquiry on Minority languages, with a 'call to evidence' until 10th March. Details of the inquiry are here:

Wikimedia UK is planning to submit a response to this inquiry, as we see it as a valuable opportunity to emphasise the importance of support for indigenous minority languages. We are planning to highlight the impact that thriving minority languages have on cultural identity and community cohesion, and the role of Wikimedia in enabling indigenous minority language speakers to freely access - or indeed, to contribute to - a body of knowledge and information in their language. However, we would love to include the voices of contributors to indigenous language Wikipedias within our submission, to make sure we are representing a range of views and perspectives. To this end, we are holding a meeting (over Zoom) to discuss the questions posed by the inquiry.

The call will be 12noon - 1pm on Wednesday 1st March and it would be great if you could join us. Do let me know if you can make it and we will send you the zoom link nearer the time. If you can't make the meeting but would like to contribute your views, please do feel free to email us your thoughts on any of the questions.

Please let me know through email / wiki email if you would like a link to the Zoom meeting, which will be held in English.

Go raibh maith agat!

Maidir le Coláiste Oiriall / daltaí ar an vicí[athraigh foinse]

(Béarla ar an am seo toisc go bhfuil lucht féachana leathan againn)

Ping @TGcoa:, @Kevin Scannell:, @Smirkybec:, @Ériugena: for input and opinions.

Regarding these series of edits from TGCoa, specifically these comments;

We should be far less tolerant of allowing pages like this remain on the Vicipéid... wasting my and everyone's time. Many of these students weren’t bothered to even spell check or cross check their work. Let’s only allow serious people, serious on making a best effort, to contribute to the Vicipéid

I'd like to bring this discussion to the broader community. Yes, the school kids have been creating articles here and yes, they're of varying quality. Poor quality articles reflects badly - I totally get that. For my part, I've been leaving them largely untouched - it's an exercise for them and not me - just adding {{Glanadh}} and WD Boscaí Sonraí really, maybe adding a 1-line intro. I've added a hidden tracking category, Catagóir:Coláiste Oiriall to each one, so we can corral them nicely and address the issues when they move on to other things. Just mitigating any problems, really.

That said, I really see the value of allowing schoolkids in Gaeilscoileanna to edit here - regardless of their quality. It's an exercise in enabling and empower them, it's teaching them the value of the language and of collaboration, and it's driving their interest in our native language and introducing them to Gaeilgóirí outside the confines of school. All that is good, IMO. But I do understand the frustration that that brings, and I'm trying to do my best to accommodate both sets of opinions here.

Thoughts / tuairimí?

  • Like, I'm a little sad that some of them will be returning today to see their articles cut to the ground and a snippy message as Béarla in the summary showing how awful they are - Alison plé 22:30, 12 Márta 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
As this is the pilot phase of this project, I will admit that there have been teething problems, and with the next cohort we will make much more use of their clár dubh and stop the use of the generic template in mainspace. I have been so appreciative of the patience and understanding of Kevin and Alison given the varying quality, and I know the teachers were planning to comb through the articles for content but also grammar and spelling once the students had finished their work here at the end of this month. I hope that the work of the students who really engaged with the editing and research will be kept and appreciated, as many of them have but a lot of effort into the content they have added so far. It is a very steep learning curve after all! Smirkybec (plé) 22:39, 12 Márta 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for the update on the project, Rebecca! How about we do this?
  • Let's build a standard template that the students can use going forward. I'm happy to help draft that and the students can just copy/paste that. We can add standard templates, categories and the usual stuff - as Gaeilge this time - which will mean that their stub articles will be reasonably okay from the get-go.
  • Maybe direct the students to get the first line down before anything else; "[[Ealaíontóir]] Éireannach as Chontae Chorcaí ab ea '''Jo Schmoe''' ([[12 Eanáir]] [[1876]] - [[10 Feabhra]] [[1954]])." with standardized dates, etc. That'll go a long way to set articles on the right footing, IMO.
  • Instead of {{Glanadh}}, let's use a custom header which shows the article is part of a school project and for readers to be patient and understanding. Again, I'm happy to do that. It can be incorporated into the template.
  • If the articles are created in their own clár dubh spaces, that's great but they won't be able to use categories and templates which cross spaces so that might make it more complex. They can also use the Draft:Rud éigin space too. I love the idea of the articles being drafted and the daltaí having the joy of seeing their articles "graduating" into mainspace and being accepted by the community :)
  • There's huge value in us being accepting of them, and they're seeing their articles being improved by the community rather than being rejected. They'll learn from every grammatical correction they see being made by others, if it's done in the spirit of kindness
  • I'll put up my own hand and say that my own chuid Gaeilge comes from my own experiences of the Árdteist and of a religious education from 4 years old, my years in the Gaeltacht as a student, and my love of the language. I'm aware of my own limitations here which is why I'm reluctant to delve too much into mainspace (I'm just so out of practice!) and do a lot of infrastructure and automation instead. I deeply appreciate the corrections I get from the likes of @Kevin Scannell:, who shows patience and kindness. So I'd really like to see that being extended to the students here as a negative experience will just set them on the wrong path.
  • I wouldn't mind if the community agreed to leave the articles as they were - at least till the end of the month - and maybe revdel the edit summary as that's really going to demotivate and hurt them, IMO. I do get the sentiment / frustration behind that, though.
Aon tuairimí, a cháirde? - Alison plé 00:30, 13 Márta 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi Alison! I'm hoping we can find a balance between encouraging the students and ensuring that what ends up published on the site is of high enough quality. Personally I'd be in favor having them work on drafts as a User page before being accepted/approved by the community and publishing to mainspace. Having that approval as a goal might even encourage some of the students to engage more deeply with the work. I'd certainly be willing to invest my own time in helping improve the writing. If the teachers also help with editing/polishing, we could end up with some very good content. kscanne (plé) 14:29, 13 Márta 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think that Alison's suggestions there are all very good, and I will bring them into the feedback on the student and teacher packs we are developing. Not all language Wikipedias have a sandbox/clár dubh space, but that is something for us to consider when suggesting how the materials will need to be localised (the Frisian Wikipedia has no user sandbox function at the moment. for example). I know setting up a user page is no great issue once you start getting used to editing, but it can be a big hurdle for new editors.
We could perhaps think about an on-Wiki barnstar or other acknowledgement of that work once it has been accepted? I had moved one problematic article into a userspace, but that was also blanked by TGcoa (here). So if we can decide that userspaces are okay for drafting and less intervention, unless there are issues with copyright etc. The "educational assignment" templates used on EN talk pages might be useful to look at? (e.g. Irene Broe)
I have a newly translated version of the student materials, that I am happy to share with anyone over email, if they are interested. We have also had some of the Reading Wikipedia in the Classroom introductory booklets translated this month by some DCU translation students, which I can also share.
I will say that from my experience on EN, when we get third level students to work in draft, once the assignment is finished very few follow through and publish them (and that is just sometimes copying and pasting a new paragraph into an existing article like Irene Broe above). So we would really need to follow through on that, and be active in encouraging (myself, the teachers, and interested Vicipéidóirí) them to take that extra step. I have started trying to move the work across, but it's not quite the same effect or ownership of the work for those less confident students. Smirkybec (plé) 17:06, 13 Márta 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Well as you might expect, I am far less open to ‘experiments’ like this.
Everyone who opens a Vicipéid page has a right to expect that it is written in intelligible Irish, not pidgin. The Vicipéid is written to serve its readers, not schoolchildren. Would articles in pidgin English ever be tolerated for the sake of education ? Plus this is against the background of a poor image of the Vicipéid among Gaeilgeoirí. The messiness of the Vicipéid has been frightening off potential editors, the ones that can actually write decent Irish .

Who on the Vicipéid corrects pages written in pidgin ? As far as I can see, I am the editor making the most corrections. And the Oriall articles would go uncorrected if not for me. Correcting someone else’s half-baked text is a totally miserable task. There is some glory and satisfaction in creating a new page… but cleaning up text is drudgery, and all the harder - and slower - for non-native speakers like me..

As for the schoolkids, you are putting the cart in front of the house. Helping the schoolkids is first and foremost helping them do research, whether in English or as Gaeilge, but particularly so in Gaeilge. If you want to write an article about X in English, you are most unlikely to just write off the top of your head, but you will first read about X to get some ideas.

There are sources in Irish too, but harder to find, and this is where the education should start. If you want to write about X, it starts by reading about X as Gaeilge. These kids however are not at a stage where they can do that.

Some editors on the Vicipéid just translate (that’s really hard… there are professional translation courses and it should cause some reflection that of the 2,000 or so trained Irish - English translators, none as far as I know contribute to the VIcipéid).

The alternative approach, the more natural one, is to source material in Irish and use that. Most people are likely to find that much easier and quicker, but they have to know how to search and be motivated. It is not reasonable to expect secondary school children to be able to do this.

Even if written in OK Irish, many of the articles will end up as 3 lines of biography. I don’t see how that helps the Vicipéid or women. For one, if I see a 3-line stub, I am much more likely to leave it alone and go create an article with more depth on some other topic. Having a load of 3-line mediocre stubs on women is more likely to fossilise the biographies than encourage more editing. Instead the Vicipéid needs richer, deeper content as Gaeilge to attract readers, not yet more half-baked stubs.

A much more meaningful project would be to pick a woman in the news, like :Kate Forbes; for which there is a lot of material as Gaeilge, and get pupils to write a few lines about different aspects of her career or policies, and for the teacher to bring it all together in the end.
Alternatively the pupils could identify articles that could do with more photos or categories ? That’d be much more effective in teaching them how to structure pages.

I thought all the Oriall articles dated from 2 months ago. If the article is not cleared up within 2 months, I don’t think it ever will. However I see there is a new batch of articles from a few days ago.
I wouldn’t mind so much if the teachers or Dowlinme would clean up the articles eventually (like those from 2 months ago). But I strongly suspect that the only person doing any clean-up in the end will be me, if I can find the time. So the sooner we call a stop to this experiment, the better.

More generally, the Vicipéid ‘community’ I fear is still in a Chaco-friendly mentality. How could we allow someone like that wreak havoc for years, unchallenged and chase away bona fide editors ? And he still has at least hundreds of articles on the Vicipéid, waiting to be corrected or deleted. The scandal arose because the handful of other editors, the so-called ‘community’, had not the linguistic skills, the time, interest or the energy to confront the rogue (myself included for some years). So let us remember that our readers, when they open a Vicipéid page, have a right to expect a decent article, not a school project in the making And our limited energy is not well spent on school projects.

I disagree with this on the strongest terms. The #1 tenet of Wikipedia is that "anyone can edit". For starters, take a look at an Príomhleathanach; "an chiclipéid shaor ar féidir le cách í a chur in eagar". And Vicipéid:Réamhrá - a page created 18 years ago by @Kwekubo:;

Ná bíodh eagla ort ailt a chur in eagar—is féidir le duine ar bith é sin a dhéanamh, agus moltar duit a bheith dána maidir le do chuid athruithe (ach gan loitiméireacht a dhéanamh le do thoil)! Má fheiceann tú rud éigin a d'fhéadfá a fheabhsú maidir le cúrsaí gramadaí, cúrsaí formáidithe nó leis an ábhar é féin, déan é!

Don't be afraid. Be bold. Anyone can edit. These are the pillars on which Vicipéid is built. A stub article - even a Chaco one - is better than no article, in Wiki philosophy, and things trend slowly toward completion and towards something better. But that has to start with a single step somehow. I see folks over on enwiki that I've known since 2004 - one of them started editing at 13 years old and is now an admin and bureaucrat over there. They didn't come out of the gate with that level of performance.
That said, I agree with both you and Kevin and I think we have to make compromises and try to manage better what people do in mainspace. That's what the Draft: namespace and the clár dubh are for. They're not indexed either, which is helpful. I've laid out a set of suggestions above and Kevin has weighed in on them. I'm pretty sure we can come to consensus as a community (or even a 'community'). I recommend you weigh in too, rather than dismiss any suggestions outright as you have here. Because - to be somewhat blunt - the community will decide and we'll go with consensus and move on. I may not get my ideal and neither may you, but we'll move on and continue working together on what we all believe in - Alison plé 04:16, 14 Márta 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I grew up in Ireland in the 70s and the way we were taught Irish (IMO) killed any grá we could possibly have had. At least it did in me. Three glorious summers in the Gaeltacht in the 80s changed my mind. I found out that folks in Corca Dhuibhne had a habit of playing fast-and-loose with the language, weaving in the odd focal Béarla here and there, and so on. The bar to entry was pretty low, and people were encouraged to do their best. Nothing, IMO, kills off someone's enthusiasm and joy than setting the bar way to high, then vilifying them and sneering at them - as you have done here - especially when it happens to a child. Don't do that. Seriously. I don't mind cleaning up the mess around here as best I can, and Kevin has said as much above. Welcoming children into the language is way too important for gatekeeping like this - Alison plé 04:26, 14 Márta 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think I land somewhere in the middle. First, setting aside the school project and looking at the Irish Wikipedia as a whole, I'm sympathetic to TGCoa's viewpoint. In fact, my main goal in returning to Wikipedia a year or two ago and agreeing to be an admin was to try and move the needle on quality enough to start attracting a community of fluent or native-speaking contributors. I've tried to be aggressive about deleting machine translated content when it's clear there has been no effort or intent to post-edit or improve. The server running HusseyBot is warm to the touch from correcting so many spelling/grammar errors. And I've gone back and have manually deleted many thousands of words of totally unreadable Irish by a handful of contributors that did a tremendous amount of damage (rivalling what happened at in my opinion, just without the media coverage). There's more we could do — for example I'd be in favor of shutting down the Content Translation tool except for an approved list of editors.
But again this is all separate from the school project. In general I'm willing to bend over backwards to support Gaeltacht students or students attending a Gaelscoil who are interested in contributing. And in this case I'd be happy to wait until the project is over and see where things stand. This presumes a good faith effort from the students and teachers to leave things in as polished a state as possible. If so, post-editing shouldn't be too bad, and otherwise at that point we can decide which articles to keep or not. kscanne (plé) 12:46, 15 Márta 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ping @Kevin Scannell: @TGcoa: @Smirkybec: @Ériugena: @DeirgeDel: @Conradder: @Eomurchadha:

Hello all. Re. to the content translation policy on the English Wikipedia, I'd like to discuss our options here with a view to drawing up our own policy here. So, to that end I'd like to propose two changes to this wiki.

1) Content translation tool should be limited to Extended Confirmed users only. This means that editors need to be here for at least 30 days, and should have at least 500 edits under their belts.

2) Integration with machine translation tools should be disabled for this wiki. Thus, all integration into Google Translate, etc will be switched off.

3) Content translation tool for non Extended Confirmed users should only be able to publish to user space.

4) Content translation tool only be run into userspace unless a new translation tool privilege has been granted. This is similar to say AWB. This can be more targeted than "Extended Confirmed users". In may need to be linked with abilities to move userspace articles to mainspace. This may be too complex an idea.

Please, le do thoil, add your votes - Ar son no - i gcoinne below each option above. Let's leave this discussion run for a week or so, and whatever the community decides, I will work with the WMF and the devs in order to update the wiki settings accordingly

  • Bhain mé úsáid as an uirlis aistriúcháin leathanaigh 10 n-uaire anois. Áirítear leis seo aistriúchán amháin ó Bhéarla go Fraincis. Tógann an uirlis am chun foghlaim conas é a úsáid go maith.

Aistrím na habairtí Gaeilge ón uirlis ar ais go Béarla. Ansin déanaim na habairtí Béarla níos giorra agus níos éasca. Ansin aistrigh mé arís agus arís eile ar ais agus amach go leor uaireanta. Cuidíonn sé seo le haistriúchán maith a dhéanamh, ach uaireanta ní oibríonn sé go maith. Féadfaidh na moltaí a rinne an uirlis aistriúcháin moltaí a bheith amaideach.

Is maith a rá freisin cé a chuir leis an alt agus cén áit ar tháinig an t-alt. Gné eile is ea nach gceadaítear aistriúcháin mura bhfuil athruithe déanta. Tá an rogha ag an uirlis foilsiú sa spás úsáideora seachas sa phríomhspás. Tabharfaidh mé roinnt eolais duit freisin.

Along with @Alison, I vote for
Integration with machine translation tools should be disabled for this wiki.
If the translation tool is limited to Extended Confirmed users only, I would prefer to see tougher limits than the ones suggested above.
I understand that senior editors like @Eomurchadha and @Ériugena may prefer to start with a machine translation first, and I trust tha they can competently clean up the text afterwards.
To me it seems that copy pasting from the Google or Yandex websites is sufficient. Plus this allows you to prepare the text in English, simplifying sentences in English that are likely to confuse the machine.

I hate the whole idea of translation anyway. Working with foinsí as Gaeilge, where available, is much faster and the Gaeilge more natural. The English is sometimes poorly written (see Charlotte Stoker on Simple English)

After restricting access to machine translation, I would advise people with elementary Irish to do simple stuff (work on categories etc) and not create problems for editors in the future.
I have spent the past few days going through some of @DeirgeDel ’s translations. It is painful and slow for me. (would be less of a burden if more could correct articles like this).
There were significant oddities and errors in the translations of DeirgeDel, such as basic grammar (eg gender confusion, especailly in successive sentences), poor syntax. faux ami go leor (eg beaten with a bat / sciathán leathair), and so on.
I had to read the English frequently to try to make sense of the Irish. The English is sometimes poorly written making an automatic translation even more hazardous. For example, the source article on Charlotte Stoker from the so-called “SIMPLE English” Wiki was poorly written, with redundant phrases, even complicated ones, eg ‘Eventually all Stoker's sons were to be taught at TCD’.
Text like this could usefully be rewritten in English first for better machine translation.

Personally I can’t spend as much time as I did over the past week doing such corrections (and I probably make errors go leor too), and I fear no one else can either.
TGcoa (plé) 21:43, 10 Aibreán 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@TGcoa: I understand where you're coming from and I voted - Ar son on the latter, but I'm really on the fence on this one. The broader issue is that the bar is pretty high today for people to be able to contribute, and anything we can do to lower that is probably a good thing. It's a balance between maintaining high grammatical / textual standards whilst not disbarring people from contributing. The core philosophy is that Vicipéid is a wiki that "anyone can edit". I'm keenly aware of my own limitations (an Árdteist :) ) which is why I stick to complex infrastructure and Kevin Scannell often fixes my flawed terminology. So, I think there's room to accommodate all. There are very few fluent speakers in the world and setting the bar too high may exclude others who might otherwise be valuable contributors. Either way, I may yet strike me own votes, as I'll likely be the one closing this out and working with the devs on whatever the community decides - Alison plé 00:14, 11 Aibreán 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Alison: The "anyone can edit" principle remains very circumscribed, namely by what other editors think is acceptable, be that false or biased content or very badly written material. The latter deserves to be blanked out when it reflects badly on the Vicipéid projet as a whole, as was the case with most of Chaco's contributions, or machine translations with from people that have no ability to fix them.
I prefer more a positive message e.g."anyone can help" and provide concrete ideas about what useful things can be done, by people with only elementary writing skills... eg add photos or references, or add categories (particularly we need the years). I still like my Coláiste Oiriall idea, that I mentionned above, of getting a teacher to work on a collaborative project with severnal students on a topic for which there are sources as Gaeilge available, and to take responsibility for the final draft. At present, pupils are thrown to the lions and asked to do an article from A to Z with, it seems no monitoring. And we don't have many, if any, editors willing to correct their output, ever. Beir bua, Ciarán

  • I do feel that 500 edits is a very high bar, and that emulating EN generally means having the highest of all possible bars, but I do understand. I only ever direct university students (or above) to the translation tool. I believe it is still possible to use the tool with these restrictions in place, but the only option is to publish it to your user space not mainspace. So that means that third level or above students interested in translation work (like the DCU students I worked with recently, with mixed results) can use the tool in this way.

Definitions, even in your mother tongue, can be hard. In another language, an excellent mastery of that language is required.

With the inline audio player, you can add text-to-speech audio snippets to wiki pages by simply using a tag:

<phonos file="audio file" label="Listen"/>

The above tag will show the text next to a speaker icon, and clicking on it will play the audio instantly without taking you to another page. A common example where you can use this feature is in adding pronunciation to words as illustrated on the English Wiktionary below.

{{audio|en|En-uk-English.oga|Audio (UK)}}

Could become:

<phonos file="En-uk-English.oga" label="Audio (UK)"/>

The inline audio player will be available in your wiki in 2 weeks time; in the meantime, we would like you to read about the features and give us feedback or ask questions about it in this talk page.

Thank you!

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

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.
