Pywikibot compat will no longer be supported - Please migrate to pywikibot core[athraigh vicithéacs]

Sorry for English, I hope someone translates this.
Pywikibot (then "Pywikipediabot") was started back in 2002. In 2007 a new branch (formerly known as "rewrite", now called "core") was started from scratch using the MediaWiki API. The developers of Pywikibot have decided to stop supporting the compat version of Pywikibot due to bad performance and architectural errors that make it hard to update, compared to core. If you are using pywikibot compat it is likely your code will break due to upcoming MediaWiki API changes (e.g. T101524). It is highly recommended you migrate to the core framework. There is a migration guide, and please contact us if you have any problem.

There is an upcoming MediaWiki API breaking change that compat will not be updated for. If your bot's name is in this list, your bot will most likely break.

Thank you,

Two weeks to save freedom of panorama in Europe[athraigh vicithéacs]

The current situation of freedom of panorama in the countries of Europe.
The current report text would turn the map red or yellow for all EU countries.

██ OK, including works of art

██ OK for buildings only

██ OK for non-commercial use only

██ Not OK

██ Unknown

Now photos of the European Parliament are not allowed to be on Wikipedia...
...as well is pictures of the Belgian national monument the Atomium, but then...
also London Eye (England), ...
...also Rotterdam Central trainstation (Netherlands), ...
...also El Hemisférico (Valencia, Spain) and many more...
Feel free to translate this message into Irish.

Hi all,

What is going on?

In the European Parliament a proposal (amendment) has been submitted to limit the Freedom of Panorama in Europe. The proposal is part of a larger plan to harmonize the copyright law in the various countries of the European Union.
If this proposal is adopted and implemented, it will mean that users on Wikipedia are no longer allowed to upload photographs of modern buildings or public works of art and use them in Wikipedia.
Even if freedom of panorama is allowed only for non-commercial purposes, this is an issue for Wikipedia. The current license under what we write Wikipedia, CC-BY-SA, is not compatible with non-commercial licenses, as they would restrict the re-use of the content.

Freedom of panorama?

Photos of modern buildings and public art currently may be uploaded on Commons / Wikipedia and used in articles, only if those pictures were taken in a country that currently has freedom of panorama (FoP), at this moment 16 of the 28 EU countries.
  • EU countries with freedom of panorama: Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark*, Finland*, Germany, Ireland, Hungary, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, and United Kingdom. (* = only for buildings)
  • EU countries without freedom of panorama: Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Estonia, France, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Romania, and Slovenia.
In countries without freedom of panorama, the creator of a creative work (permanently placed in the public space, like buildings, public art, etc.) needs to authorize the release of the photo, also if you have taken the photo yourself.

Which proposal involved?

It concerns amendment AM421 proposed by Cavada.

When is the vote on this amendment?

Thursday 9 July.

Can we do something against it?

Yes! By making known what impact this amendment has to Wikipedia and what damage it can cause to Wikipedia. In recent years it has come to our attention that many politicians do not even know that it is forbidden to publish on their website a photo of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, without the prior permission of the architect. So in the first place creating awareness is important.
Therefore a CentralNotice banner is prepared and a landing page. If you like, you can create a landing page, just like sv:Wikipedia:Panoramafrihet or de:Wikipedia:Initiative für die Panoramafreiheit.

What can I do?

  • Send an e-mail to one or more Members of the European Parliament from your country/area (list of members on Wikipedia and list of the members on the site of the European Parliament (on the page of each member is the e-mail address linked)).
  • Send a tweet to one or more Members of the European Parliament from your country/area (or re-tweet) in your language. Ask them for example if they really want Wikipedia to be backed-out or stripped of thousands of images. Or send a tweet to political groups in the parliament or a general tweet about the subject. Examples: 1, 2, 3.


Where is the coordination?

Commons:Freedom of Panorama 2015
Here, press releases, media reports, and more matters can be reported / added / suggested.
Feedback for the suggested banner text and landing page can be provided here: Commons:Freedom of Panorama 2015/Proposed messages.


Where can I read more information?

Feel free to translate this message into Irish. Thanks! Romaine (talk) 10:08, 22 Meitheamh 2015 (UTC)

Status update[athraigh vicithéacs]

Hello all!

  • Past Thursday we had a meeting with WMF to evaluate the political situation in Brussels and to determine if setting up a banner today would be effective. In these two weeks there are two critical points in the political process to get to a text that is safe for Wikipedia: before 1 July an MEP need to take action to get the text changed with sufficient support from other MEPs, and on 9 July the plenary voting in the European Parliament. We determined Thursday that as a result of all our actions Wikimedia wide, we have generated enough attention to get the first step done. Congratulations! But this was the small step, the large one is the plenary voting.
  • The question we asked ourselves is if we should already show a banner today. A banner on top of every Wikipedia page is a very powerful and sensitive instrument we should be carefully in using it, in timing and wording, certainly if it concerns a subject in the field of advocacy. Also it should be used as last resort. As said, we have arranged enough attention for point one. We also consider two weeks before the voting as too long, because when the banner is seen this week, it likely will be forgotten two weeks later. Therefore we consider it better to start with the banner on 2 July, after assessing how the situation has developed.
  • We advice you not to set up a banner in this week already, but this is an advice. If your local community decides otherwise, this will be respected. We recommend a strong European action at the same time together.
  • The international landing page about this issue is ready at: Freedom of Panorama in Europe in 2015. It would be welcome to translate this page to Irish on a page on the Irish Wikipedia to show that (also) this Wikipedia wants the proposal be changed. (Please add your page in the item Q20200822 on Wikidata.)
  • The page with an overview of the Members of the European Parliament (MEP) in Ireland is (also) at Freedom of Panorama in Europe in 2015/Contact your MEP/IE. There you can easily find an MEP, his/her e-mail and Twitter-account.
  • If we set up a banner on 2 July, we like to set up a CentralNotice banner also for Ireland (with approval of WMF), depending on how the politics evolve. For this banner translations are needed. If you want to translate the texts of the banner from English into Irish, add your name, language and how we can reach you at m:Talk:Freedom of Panorama in Europe in 2015/Banner and we will let you know when you can translate.

What is the plan?

  • We will asses the situation on 2 July, then we will set up a banner that day for multiple countries. This gives us also more time to get all the translations in the various European languages.
  • We have asked the Wikimedia Foundation to come with an official statement. They have indicated that they will work on this and will come with an official statement and/or blog post on 2 July.
  • But in the mean while just waiting? - No!
    • Send a personal e-mail to an MEP in your country/area. If you send an e-mail to an MEP, please write it in your own language in your own words. Sending a the same identical message to multiple MEPs, they will notice that and then it does not work any more. See: Freedom of Panorama in Europe in 2015/Contact your MEP/IE. You can link to: http://meta.wikipedia/wiki/saveFoP
    • Send a tweet to an MEP, make it as personal as possible. Hashtag for the action is #saveFoP
    • Write together a press release or an open letter from the community (like on de-wiki)

Let's do this! Thank you for all the work!! Romaine (talk) 10:19, 27 Meitheamh 2015 (UTC)

PS: If someone can translate the article about Freedom of Panorama, please do so! Thank you! Romaine (talk) 10:19, 27 Meitheamh 2015 (UTC)

Status update 3 July 2015[athraigh vicithéacs]

It is going fast the past 24 hours and before. Therefore this update below, written bij my colleague Dimi_z who is for the Wikimedia movement following the political developments in the EU in the past weeks and years:

1. We have managed to find enough MEPs from various groups to file a positive amendment affirming Freedom of Panorama. The signatures were collected with the help of mainly the Dutch, German and Estonian ALDE members.
2. As a result of the big pressure we exercised and the fact that his own group publicly opposed him on this, Mr. Cavada has now called everyone in the European Parliament to vote to delete his wording, but also to oppose the amendment, as a compromise. It looks like there is a solid majority for this compromise.
3. Delegations form the second largest group, the S&D, have taken public positions against the Cavada text. They have however also let us know, that they wouldn't appreciate being cornered into voting for new (ALDE) amendment. The reasons they cite are mainly of procedural nature.
4. It would take a lot of pressure to get the positive amendment through. Such an aggressive campaign pushing for the absolute maximum this early on in the legislative process could, I am afraid, hurt our standing. Especially banners are only effective if they are used conservatively and there is an imminent threat. This threat is not given any longer, which we should all congratulate ourselves for. This is something we achieved! I want to personally thank each and every single one of the hundreds of people who worked on this.
5. We can still push for the positive amendment by ALDE! We can do this by writing and calling our MEPs personally and ask them to vote for it. We can also do this by joining the petition, which will ask all its signatories to to do the same.
6. What we can and should do now is invest in the contacts we established with MEPs and their assistants. Thank the ones who answered and promised to help! Invite them to a Wikipedia meet-up! Offer you expertise! Ask them to help you with FoP on the national level if you have none!
7. Maintaining contacts is also important, as the copyright reform dossier will come to the European Parliament sometime next year. If we make friends now, it will make our lives much easier next time around.
8. The vote on 9 July will go down as follows: First the positive amendment by ALDE will be voted on, then after that the "split" (meaning deletion) of the FoP paragraph. If the positive amendment passes, we would need the deletion to be rejected. If the positive amendment is rejected, we need the deletion to get a majority.

If you need more information or if you have questions, you can ask them through our helpline.

Thank you so much for all the work done! We have made our voice heard, with success! :-) Romaine (talk) 01:19, 3 Iúil 2015 (UTC)

PS: I will try to keep you informed on this page about future developments. Romaine (talk) 01:19, 3 Iúil 2015 (UTC)

Voting: outcomes[athraigh vicithéacs]

Today the European Parliament voted about the copyright report, including the subject Freedom of Panorama.

  • The negative text by Cavada (Freedom of Panorama only non-commercial in whole EU) was dropped by 502 to 40.
  • The positive text by Schaake (full Freedom of Panorama in whole EU) didn't pass by 228 to 303.
  • The report as a whole was accepted with 445 to 65 with 32 abstentions.

Thanks everyone, we almost manage to achieve a full swing, which is a very tough feat to get done in 3 weeks.

What is next?
Autumn 2015: European Commission planned proposal on a renewed EU Directive.

Proposal to create PNG thumbnails of static GIF images[athraigh vicithéacs]

The thumbnail of this gif is of really bad quality.
How a PNG thumb of this GIF would look like

There is a proposal at the Commons Village Pump requesting feedback about the thumbnails of static GIF images: It states that static GIF files should have their thumbnails created in PNG. The advantages of PNG over GIF would be visible especially with GIF images using an alpha channel. (compare the thumbnails on the side)

This change would affect all wikis, so if you support/oppose or want to give general feedback/concerns, please post them to the proposal page. Thank you. --McZusatz (talk) & MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 05:07, 24 Iúil 2015 (UTC)

Wikidata: Access to data from arbitrary items is coming[athraigh vicithéacs]

(Sorry for writing in English)

When using data from Wikidata on Wikipedia and other sister projects, there is currently a limitation in place that hinders some use cases: data can only be accessed from the corresponding item. So, for example, the Wikipedia article about Berlin can only get data from the Wikidata item about Berlin but not from the item about Germany. This had technical reasons. We are now removing this limitation. It is already done for many projects. Your project is one of the next ones. We will roll out this feature here on August 12.

We invite you to play around with this new feature if you are one of the people who have been waiting for this for a long time. If you have technical issues/questions with this you can come to d:Wikidata:Contact the development team.

A note of caution: Please be careful with how many items you use for a single page. If it is too many pages, loading might get slow. We will have to see how the feature behaves in production to see where we need to tweak and how.

Dia dhuit, is mise Josep Maria Roca Peña agus táim 20 mbliana d'aois.
Is as Barcelona dhom, as Catalonia, mar sin is Catalónach mé agus tá dóchas agam a bheidh Catalonia neamhspleách. Labhraím freisin an Spáinnis agus an Phortaingéilis, mar bhínn sa Phortaingéil ar feadh tamaill. Is maith liom go háirithe na trí sraitheanna sin: Star Trek, Code Lyoko agus Winx Club, agus tá vicí na sraitheanna sin agam i dteangacha éagasúla.

Wikimania 2016 scholarships ambassadors needed[athraigh vicithéacs]

Hello! Wikimania 2016 scholarships will soon be open; by the end of the week we'll form the committee and we need your help, see Scholarship committee for details.

If you want to carefully review nearly a thousand applications in January, you might be a perfect committee member. Otherwise, you can volunteer as "ambassador": you will observe all the committee activities, ensure that people from your language or project manage to apply for a scholarship, translate scholarship applications written in your language to English and so on. Ambassadors are allowed to ask for a scholarship, unlike committee members.

Your input requested on the proposed #FreeBassel banner campaign[athraigh vicithéacs]

This is a message regarding the proposed 2015 Free Bassel banner. Translations are available.

Hi everyone,

This is to inform all Wikimedia contributors that a straw poll seeking your involvement has just been started on Meta-Wiki.

As some of your might be aware, a small group of Wikimedia volunteers have proposed a banner campaign informing Wikipedia readers about the urgent situation of our fellow Wikipedian, open source software developer and Creative Commons activist, Bassel Khartabil. An exemplary banner and an explanatory page have now been prepared, and translated into about half a dozen languages by volunteer translators.

We are seeking your involvement to decide if the global Wikimedia community approves starting a banner campaign asking Wikipedia readers to call on the Syrian government to release Bassel from prison. We understand that a campaign like this would be unprecedented in Wikipedia's history, which is why we're seeking the widest possible consensus among the community.

Given Bassel's urgent situation and the resulting tight schedule, we ask everyone to get involved with the poll and the discussion to the widest possible extent, and to promote it among your communities as soon as possible.

(Apologies for writing in English; please kindly translate this message into your own language.)

Thank you for your participation!

2016 WMF Strategy consultation[athraigh vicithéacs]

Please help translate to your language

Hello, all.

The Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) has launched a consultation to help create and prioritize WMF strategy beginning July 2016 and for the 12 to 24 months thereafter. This consultation will be open, on Meta, from 18 January to 26 February, after which the Foundation will also use these ideas to help inform its Annual Plan. (More on our timeline can be found on that Meta page.)

Your input is welcome (and greatly desired) at the Meta discussion, 2016 Strategy/Community consultation.

Apologies for English, where this is posted on a non-English project. We thought it was more important to get the consultation translated as much as possible, and good headway has been made there in some languages. There is still much to do, however! We created m:2016 Strategy/Translations to try to help coordinate what needs translation and what progress is being made. :)

If you have questions, please reach out to me on my talk page or on the strategy consultation's talk page or by email to mdennis@wikimedia.org.

Wikimania 2016: call for posters, discussions and trainings[athraigh vicithéacs]

Hi people,
the calls for posters, discussions and trainings for Wikimania 2016 are officially opened, you can find all the relevant links on the conference wiki:

https://wikimania2016.wikimedia.org/wiki/Submissions

The calls will be closed on March 20.

Posters will be reviewed just to make sure that there aren't things which are too much out of scope. Since we have a whole village we will surely find places to attach them, even if we they will be a lot!

Discussions will be managed by a guiding committee who will work on the wiki to meld all the proposals and suggestions.

Trainings will be reviewed by the programme committee. Please note that we request that each training has at least 3-5 interested attendees in order to be put in the programme.

By the beginning of April we will have a first list of all the accepted proposals.

If you have questions we suggest you to ask them on the discussion pages on wiki, so that everyone will be able to see them (and their answers, of course).

We are looking forward to read your ideas! --Yiyi (talk) 15:25, 29 Feabhra 2016 (UTC)

Aistriúcháin uathoibríocha srl[athraigh vicithéacs]

Ní ghlactar le fada an lá le haistriúcháin uathoibríocha ar Vicipéid na Gaeilge. Bíonn an Ghaeilge iontu dothuigthe agus tógann sé níos mó ama iad a cheartú ná na hailt a scríobh as an nua. Ó am go ham is fiú ceann gairid a choimeád má's alt é atá ag teastáil uainn go géar agus má thig le duine é a ghlanadh go tapa.

Má fheiceann sibh alt atá aistrithe go huathoibríoch, bíodh 'fhios agaibh go bhfuil cead againn go léir a scriosadh a mholadh. Níl i gceist ach an focal "scrios" a scríobh le dhá lúibín ar gach taobh de. Níos fearr, scríobhtar "scrios|Aistriúchán uathoibríoch".

Maidir le Comórtas Amhránaíochta na hEoraifíse 2016 agus a leithéid níor thuig mé gur astriúchán uathoibríoch a bhí ann in aon chor. Tá meas agam ar na daoine a dhéanann an obair fhadálach sin ag cur táblaí le chéile. Thug mé faoi deara go raibh droch-rogha á dhéanamh go minic sna táblaí (agus san téacs a ghabhann leo, ach ní bhíonn mórán de sin ann). Cheartaigh mé táblaí agus téacs anseo is ansiúd chun leid nó treoir a thabhairt do dhaoine, ach ní raibh sé d'am agam é a dhéanamh go córasach.

Is féidir leis an duine ar bheagán Gaeilge obair fhiúntach a dhéanamh ach an tuiscint aige/aici go bhfuil a c(h)umas le téacs a scríobh teoranta. Ba chóir an cumas sin acu fás go díreach mar a bhfuil an tionscadal seo againne ag fás.

We all contribute positively to the project, I think. But people at Wiki Level 1 of Irish (or thereabouts) should especially be aware of how far their knowledge of the language can take them. It creates work for others when anyone goes beyond his or her capability. For the project or the language itself to succeed, there has to be a coming together with a steady levelling up of abilities. Vicipéid is a particularly good reflection, I think, of what is going on with the language. Level 1 (and 2 and 3) people should spend some time on self-study, even if it means a little less time editing, so that they grow as the project—and, hopefully, the language—grows. I just did some of that today with A Grammar of Modern Irish by my old friend Pól Ó Murchú. All of us should also spend some time reading Vicipéid. SeoMac (talk) 06:12, 26 Márta 2016 (UTC)

Server switch 2016[athraigh vicithéacs]

The Wikimedia Foundation will be testing its newest data center in Dallas. This will make sure Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia wikis can stay online even after a disaster. To make sure everything is working, the Wikimedia Technology department needs to conduct a planned test. This test will show whether they can reliably switch from one data center to the other. It requires many teams to prepare for the test and to be available to fix any unexpected problems.

They will switch all traffic to the new data center on Tuesday, 19 April.
On Thursday, 21 April, they will switch back to the primary data center.

Unfortunately, because of some limitations in MediaWiki, all editing must stop during those two switches. We apologize for this disruption, and we are working to minimize it in the future.

You will be able to read, but not edit, all wikis for a short period of time.

  • You will not be able to edit for approximately 15 to 30 minutes on Tuesday, 19 April and Thursday, 21 April, starting at 14:00 UTC (15:00 BST, 16:00 CEST, 10:00 EDT, 07:00 PDT).

If you try to edit or save during these times, you will see an error message. We hope that no edits will be lost during these minutes, but we can't guarantee it. If you see the error message, then please wait until everything is back to normal. Then you should be able to save your edit. But, we recommend that you make a copy of your changes first, just in case.

Other effects:

  • Background jobs will be slower and some may be dropped.

Red links might not be updated as quickly as normal. If you create an article that is already linked somewhere else, the link will stay red longer than usual. Some long-running scripts will have to be stopped.

  • There will be a code freeze for the week of 18 April.

No non-essential code deployments will take place.

This test was originally planned to take place on March 22. April 19th and 21st are the new dates. You can read the schedule at wikitech.wikimedia.org. They will post any changes on that schedule. There will be more notifications about this. Please share this information with your community. /User:Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 21:08, 17 Aibreán 2016 (UTC)

Machine translation support enabled today for Content Translation[athraigh vicithéacs]

Hello, machine translation support for Content Translation (beta feature) has now been extended and enabled for users of Irish Wikipedia using Yandex. It can be used when translating Wikipedia articles into Irish with Content Translation. To start using this service, please choose ‘’Yandex.Translate’’ from the ‘’Automatic Translation’’ dropdown menu that you see on the sidebar after you start translating an article. Please note, machine translation is available from all the languages that are supported by Yandex.Translate, but Content Translation can still be used in the usual manner for translating from all languages, with or without machine translation support.

Wikimedia Foundation’s Legal team and Yandex had collaborated earlier to work out an agreement that allows the use of Yandex.Translate without compromising Wikipedia’s policy of attribution of rights, privacy of our users and brand representation. Since November 2015, Yandex machine translation has been used for articles translated for Wikipedias in many languages. Details about Yandex translation services, including a summary of the contract are available on this page. More information about the machine translation services in Content Translation is available on this page. We request you to kindly take a look at these pages.

We have tested the service for use on the Irish Wikipedia, but there could be unknown problems that we are not aware of yet. Please do let us know on our Project Talk page or phabricator if you face any problems using Content Translation. This message is only in English and we will be very grateful if it could be translated into Irish for other users of this Wikipedia. Thank you.

Hi. I can see that this project has old JavaScript that needs to be updated.

I have already made these updates on a number of other projects, so it would be very easy for me to do this. If no one does anything, some JavaScript-related tools will break later this year. If you want me to make these updates, you can grant me admin rights and I will make the updates as soon as I can. Nirmos (talk) 03:37, 3 Meitheamh 2016 (UTC)

Screenshot of Compact Language Links interlanguage list

Hello, I wanted to give a heads up about an upcoming feature for this wiki which you may seen already in Tech News. Compact Language Links has been available as a beta-feature on all Wikimedia wikis since 2014. With compact language links enabled, users are shown a much shorter list of languages on the interlanguage link section of an article (see image). This will be enabled as a feature in the coming week for all users, which can be turned on or off using a preference setting. We look forward to your feedback and please do let us know if you have any questions. Details about Compact Language Links can be read in the project documentation.

Due to the large scale enablement of this feature, we have had to use MassMessage for this message and as a result it is only written in English. We will really appreciate if this message can be translated for other users of this wiki. The main announcement can also be translated on this page. Thank you.

Three weeks ago, you were invited to vote on how to take Wikipedia articles to the Moon. Community voting is over and the winning idea is to send all ‘’featured articles and lists’’ to the Moon. This decision means that, starting today, Wikipedians from all language communities are warmly invited to intensively work on their best articles and lists, and submit them to Wikipedia to the Moon. The central site to coordinate between communities will be Meta-Wiki. You will find an overview and more information there. Hopefully, we will be able to represent as many languages as possible, to show Wikipedia’s diversity.
