New notification when a page is connected to Wikidata[athraigh foinse]

Hello all,

(Please help translate to your language)

The Wikidata development team is about to deploy a new feature on all Wikipedias. It is a new type of notification (via Echo, the notification system you see at the top right of your wiki when you are logged in), that will inform the creator of a page, when this page is connected to a Wikidata item.

You may know that Wikidata provides a centralized system for all the interwikilinks. When a new page is created, it should be connected to the corresponding Wikidata item, by modifying this Wikidata item. With this new notification, editors creating pages will be informed when another editor connects this page to Wikidata.

Screenshot Echo Wikibase notification.png

This feature will be deployed on May 30th on all the Wikipedias, excepting English, French and German. This feature will be disable by default for existing editors, and enabled by default for new editors.

This is the first step of the deployments, the Wikipedias and other Wikimedia projects will follow in the next months.

If you have any question, suggestion, please let me know by pinging me. You can also follow and leave a comment on the Phabricator ticket.

Thanks go to Matěj Suchánek who developed this feature!

Thank you! Lea Lacroix (WMDE) (talk)

m:Requests for comment/Global centralnotice for the blockade of the Turkish government[athraigh foinse]

Hi, you are invited to participate in the discussion on the proposal to make a banner through m: centralnotice to inform more people around the world about what the Turkish government has done about Wikipedia, ie all the language versions of Wikipedia are You are obscured, so in Turkey it is impossible to view the * site. To hope that the Turkish government will remove the block, it is necessary to raise awareness of this fact around the world because it is important to succeed in this mission because Wikipedia can not be seen in Turkey. With this message also for those interested, I invite him to sign the Wikimedian appeal.

If you have any questions or questions do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks best regards. --Samuele2002 (Talk!) 21:10, 22 Bealtaine 2017 (UTC)

Catagóirí[athraigh foinse]

Nuair a bhíonn sibh ag cruthú teideal nua, bígí cúramach leis an dá phointe seo:

1. Úsáidtear an uimhir uatha den aidiacht sa tuiseal ginideach nuair a bhíonn an t-ainmfhocal lag: Liosta galar aicídeach. Úsáidtear an t-iolra má bhíonn an t-ainmfhocal tréan: Liosta ionsaithe Ioslamacha. A plural noun in the genitive case is followed by the singular form of the adjective if the plural of the noun is weak; it is plural if the noun has a strong plural.

2. Ní bhíonn fáth ann de ghnáth an chéad fhocal i dteideal a shéimhiú: Galair aicídeacha, agus ní Ghalair aicídeacha. First letter of a noun in a title is not normally lenited.

Agus cé go dtuigeann sibh é seo, ní mhiste é a rá arís: Uimhir iolra i gcomhair ainm catagóra: Madraí, mar shampla; uimhir uatha i gcomhair ainm ailt: Madra. No harm in repeating: Plural for names of categories, singular for names of articles.

Cuir ceist má bhíonn teideal casta i gceist agaibh. Ask in case of complicated titles. SeoMac (plé) 17:28, 21 Iúil 2017 (UTC)

Improved search in deleted pages archive[athraigh foinse]

Please help translate to your language

During Wikimedia Hackathon 2016, the Discovery team worked on one of the items on the 2015 community wishlist, namely enabling searching the archive of deleted pages. This feature is now ready for production deployment, and will be enabled on all wikis, except Wikidata.

Right now, the feature is behind a feature flag - to use it on your wiki, please go to the Special:Undelete page, and add &fuzzy=1 to the URL, like this: Then search for the pages you're interested in. There should be more results than before, due to using ElasticSearch indexing (via the CirrusSearch extension).

We plan to enable this improved search by default on all wikis soon (around August 1, 2017). If you have any objections to this - please raise them with the Discovery team via email or on this announcement's discussion page. Like most Mediawiki configuration parameters, the functionality can be configured per wiki. Once the improved search becomes the default, you can still access the old mode using &fuzzy=0 in the URL, like this:

Please note that since Special:Undelete is an admin-only feature, this search capability is also only accessible to wiki admins.

Clár dubh agus Article Placeholder[athraigh foinse]

Dia duit! Is mise Rebecca Ní Neill, agus tá mé an Comhordaitheoir Tionscadail le Pobal Wikimedia Éireann. Maith dom mo droch-Gaeilge (agus ag úsaid Béarla!!), tá mé ag athfhoghlaim!

I have been working hard to promote the usage of Vicipéid with more Irish speakers, as well as those learning the language at 2nd and 3rd level. This generally involves holding workshops for interested people, like this event in DCU. From these events, many participants have enquired about having a Sandbox here on Vicipéid. I know there is a communal Clár dubh, but I would like to propose that we request that a personal Clár dubh for all users. Uicipeid (Scots Gaelic Wikipedia) recently rolled this out, and found it to be an invaluable for some more hesitant new editors.

Secondly, Wicipedia (the Welsh Wikipedia) has rolled out the use of Article Placeholder. This is a form of auto-generated article (which doesn't not look like a "real" article written by users), drawing on Wikidata to populate it. There is a blog post about the Welsh experience here. In particular, on Vicipéid it would prioritise information for which there is Irish content. This has two potential positives for our community:

  1. It will increase exposure of Wikidata to the Irish speaking community, encouraging contribution to this increasingly important element with Wikimedia.
  2. In relation to holding workshops with new editors, editing Wikidata is very simple, and quick edits to add Irish translations to Wikidata would immediately be reflected in the Article Placeholder article texts.

Gabh mo léithsceal arís go usáid Béarla, ach ceapaim go raibh an díospóireacht seo an-tábhachtach. An bhfuil aon mholtaí agaibh? Cad a cheapann sibh? Smirkybec (plé) 14:23, 28 Lúnasa 2017 (UTC)

Go raibh maith agat as an teachtaireacht seo. Tá na smaointe seo agat an-suimiúil. Beidh mé ag smaoineamh orthu agus fágfaidh mé aisfhreagra níos déanaí. B'fhéidir go bhfuil rud éigin le rá ag daoine eile anseo freisin. I'll have more to say after I look over this, and others may have something to say also. SeoMac (plé) 21:22, 28 Lúnasa 2017 (UTC)
Go raibh maith agat SeoMac, is mór agam do ama. Smirkybec (plé) 12:28, 29 Lúnasa 2017 (UTC)
An bhfuil aon agóidí? Are there any issues with going ahead with these changes? Tá an Clár Dubh simplí chun cuir ar siúl, ach tá Article Placeholder beagán níos casta. An bhfuil sé ceart go leor tús a chur le himeachtaí? Go raibh maith agaibh! Smirkybec (plé) 13:10, 4 Deireadh Fómhair 2017 (UTC)
GRMA as ucht an mholadh. Sílim gur smaoineamh maith é ach ceapaim go bhfuil sé tábhachtach go mbeadh an t-eolas agus na treoracha aistrithe go Gaeilge sula ndéanfaí beo é. Ní dóigh liom go mbreathnódh sé go maith ar chor ar bith dá mbeadh na 'placeholders' seo ag teacht aníos ar fud na Vicipéide agus iad (nó aon chuid daoibh) i mBéarla. Maidir leis an gclár dubh, an féidir an nasc "sandbox" a fheiceann chuile úsáideoir nuair atá siad logáilte isteach a aistriú go "clár dubh"? Tá cuntas agam ar translatewiki ach ní féidir liom teacht ar an áit a bhfuil an "sandbox" seo? (we really need to translate the "sandbox" text that appears on every user's menu to "clár dubh". Do you have any idea which project on translatewiki stores that string? I couldn't find it under Mediawiki? GRMA Nmacu (plé) 09:08, 7 Samhain 2017 (UTC)
Tar éis dom súil a chaitheamh ar Wicipedia na Breatanaise, tá mé in amhras faoin tionscadal seo a chur i bhfeidhm ar an Vicipéid. Go teoiriciúil, is smaoineamh maith é ach go praiticiúil, an toradh a bheadh air ná go mbeadh go leor de na 'placeholders' seo á chruthú agus iad leath i nGaeilge agus leath i mBéarla - nó, sin mar atá sé faoi láthair tar éis dom sracfhéachaint a thabhairt do Wicipedia - féach mar shampla: [1]. Deirtear nach 'leathanaigh' cearta iad ach céard í an difríocht idir leathanach agus 'placeholder' don ghnáthléitheoir? Tagann siad aníos amhail is leathanaigh iad. Is oth liom a rá nach mbeinn i bhfábhar leathanaigh/placeholders mar seo a bheith curtha ar fáil go huathoibríoch ar an Vicipéid. Le dea-ghuí, Nmacu (plé) 09:10, 8 Samhain 2017 (UTC)
Gabh mo leithscéal go raibh mé an-déanach freagra a thabhairt. I will get back onto the developers to make sure that it appears as "Clár Dubh" in the menu. Thanks very much for your thoughts on ArticlePlaceholder. It has some benefits, as editors making very small edits to Wikidata (adding Irish translations) can see their edits go "live" elsewhere. Although we may need to put in more thought/preparation into such a roll out if we got to a place where the Vicipéid community is happier with it as a tool. Go raibh míle maith agat!

presenting the project Wikipedia Cultural Diversity Observatory and asking for a vounteer in Gaeilge Wikipedia[athraigh foinse]

Hello everyone,

My name is Marc Miquel and I am a researcher from Barcelona (Universitat Pompeu Fabra). While I was doing my PhD I studied whether an identity-based motivation could be important for editor participation and I analyzed content representing the editors' cultural context in 40 Wikipedia language editions. Few months later, I propose creating the Wikipedia Cultural Diversity Observatory in order to raise awareness on Wikipedia’s current state of cultural diversity, providing datasets, visualizations and statistics, and pointing out solutions to improve intercultural coverage.

I am presenting this project to a grant and I expect that the site becomes a useful tool to help communities create more multicultural encyclopaedias and bridge the content culture gap that exists across language editions (one particular type of systemic bias). For instance, this would help spreading cultural content local to Gaeilge Wikipedia into the rest of Wikipedia language editions, and viceversa, make Gaeilge Wikipedia much more multicultural. Here is the link of the project proposal:

I am searching for a volunteer in each language community: I still need one for the Gaeilge Wikipedia. If you feel like it, you can contact me at: marcmiquel *at* I need a contact in your every community who can (1) check the quality of the cultural context article list I generate to be imported-exported to other language editions, (2) test the interface/data visualizations in their language, and (3) communicate the existance of the tool/site when ready to the language community and especially to those editors involved in projects which could use it or be aligned with it. Communicating it might not be a lot of work, but it will surely have a greater impact if done in native language! :). If you like the project, I'd ask you to endorse it in the page I provided. In any case, I will appreciate any feedback, comments,... Thanks in advance for your time! Best regards, --Marcmiquel (plé) 22:29, 9 Deireadh Fómhair 2017 (UTC) Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona

Aistriúchán ar an gcomhéadan[athraigh foinse]

Tá sé tugtha faoi deara agam go bhfuil go leor Béarla ag teacht isteach ar an gcomhéadan. Tá sé seo ag tarlú is dóigh mar gheall ar leaganach nua de MediaWiki atá ag teacht i bhfeidhm. Tá logánú déanta agam ar cuid den téarmaíocht seo agus déanfaidh mé iarracht tuilleadh a dhéanamh de réir a chéile. Nuair a fheicim aon bhotún agus mé i mbun na hoibre seo, tá mé á gceartú. Má déanaim aon bhotún, maithigí dom iad. I gcás amháin, tá an téarma "dréacht" le haghaidh "contribution" athraithe go "iarracht", rud a cheapaim atá níos cruinne agus a sheachnaíonn débhríochas le "draft". Má tá aon mholadh ag éinne nó muna n-aontaíonn daoine leis na hathruithe seo, seol teachtaireacht chugam, agus beidh muid in ann rudaí a athrú ar ais nó teacht ar réiteach éigin. Tá mé chun leanacht orm muna gcloisim a mhalairt ó éinne, mar sílim go bhfuil sé níos fearr leagan Gaeilge de shaghas éigin a bheith ann seachas an Béarla faoi mar a sheasann sé.

IMPORTANT: Admin activity review[athraigh foinse]

Sorry for posting in English. There's no Gaeilge translation. Please help translate to your language. Thank you.

Hello. A policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc. ) was adopted by global community consensus in 2013. According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing administrators' activity on all Wikimedia Foundation wikis with no inactivity policy. To the best of our knowledge, your wiki does not have a formal process for removing "advanced rights" from inactive accounts. This means that the stewards will take care of this according to the admin activity review.

We have determined that the following users meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no log actions for more than 2 years):

  1. User:Tameamseo (last edit: 2015-01-13; last log action: 2013-11-25)

These users will receive a notification soon, asking them to start a community discussion if they want to retain some or all of their rights. If the users do not respond, then their advanced rights will be removed by the stewards.

However, if you as a community would like to create your own activity review process superseding the global one, want to make another decision about these inactive rights holders, or already have a policy that we missed, then please notify the stewards on Meta-Wiki so that we know not to proceed with the rights review on your wiki. Thank you. --MarcoAurelio (plé) 09:39, 11 Aibreán 2018 (UTC)

Lua foilseachán/Citation tool[athraigh foinse]

Dia dhuit a dhuine uasail! Mé féin arís! I am currently at the Celtic Knot conference, and we have been exploring the possibility of improving the citation tool here on Vicipéid. At the moment 2 editors are translating the two existing templates Teimpléad:Cite journal and Teimpléad:Lua idirlín as both book and news citations redirect to journal. If we enable the Citation tool on Vicipéid, it would make the process a lot easier if we had one translated template to use, and we are proposing to use what is currently called Cite journal. However, so that "Cite Journal" does not appear in the citation drop-down menu while editing on Vicipéid, we would like to move this template to a new one called Teimpléad:Lua foilseachán so that it is in Irish and will cover all forms of references. This means anyone who uses the cite journal template in Wiki markup it will still work. This should make citing on Vicipéid much easier, and will also be all as Gaeilge as well. This should be a very quick roll out, but obviously we did not want to make any decisions without the community! If anyone has any concerns, do let me know. Otherwise if there are no objections we will enable it. GRMA arís, agus tá brón orm Béarla a labhairt! Smirkybec (plé) 13:50, 6 Iúil 2018 (UTC)

GRMA. Má thuigim é seo i gceart, is athrú maith a bheas ann. Tá fadhb agam le "Lua foilseachán". Is é an chiall atá leis ná "citation of publications". An modh ordaitheach atá i gceist, agus mar sin déarfainn gur "Luaigh foilseachán" a bheadh níos fearr ("Cite [a] publication"). The imperative is luaigh, not lua. (The Welsh and Breton projects are among those that leave the title of the template as "cite journal"--whatever appears on their interface--but I would like to see Irish.) I hope that makes sense.
De réir dealraimh, tá ag éirí go maith libh ag Celtic Knot. GMMA. Trua nach raibh mé ábalta 'bheith i láthair. Bainigí sult agus tairbhe as! SeoMac (plé) 16:12, 6 Iúil 2018 (UTC)
GRMA SeoMac! I really appreciate your feedback, and definitely would be happy to make that change to "Luaigh foilseachán".

EU Copyright Reform Update[athraigh foinse]

EU Copyright Reform Update[athraigh foinse]

As you might already know, there is currently a copyright reform going on in the European Union, which will affect Wikipedia and other free knowledge projects. In July, the European Parliament debated a proposal that would have been harmful for freedom of expression and collaboration online. Many Wikimedia organisations and communities took action in June and July to oppose it and contributed to the rejection of this version of the proposal.

After its summer break, the European Parliament will vote on new amendments to the European Commission’s original proposal on 12 September. Members of the European Parliament can submit such new amendments by 5 September. The European Wikimedia organisations, members of the Free Knowledge Advocacy Group EU, and the Wikimedia Foundation are working on making sure amendments that protect and grow free knowledge will be on the table. These include a new approach to Article 13, but also safeguarding the public domain, freedom of panorama and user generated content.

Over the coming weeks, it will be important for Wikimedia to promote our vision of a copyright framework that helps us share the sum of all knowledge online. Should your community wish to engage in further public policy actions around this we would greatly appreciate if you coordinate with us to make sure our message is coherent across countries. We want to promote sensible copyright rules that advance access to information and knowledge instead merely stopping a bad proposal.

You can help by translating and sharing information materials in your language, sending an opinion piece to media in your country, contacting MEPs from your region with suggestions to support positive amendments, or participating in events in Brussels and Strasbourg (on 6 and 11 September, tbc).

We will provide updates soon about the community activities. In addition, we will share information and guidance on important amendments to the copyright proposal in due time.--Dimi z (plé) 13:03, 20 Lúnasa 2018 (UTC)

Editing of sitewide CSS/JS is only possible for interface administrators from now[athraigh foinse]

(Please help translate to your language)

Hi all,

as announced previously, permission handling for CSS/JS pages has changed: only members of the interface-admin (Interface administrators) group, and a few highly privileged global groups such as stewards, can edit CSS/JS pages that they do not own (that is, any page ending with .css or .js that is either in the MediaWiki: namespace or is another user's user subpage). This is done to improve the security of readers and editors of Wikimedia projects. More information is available at Creation of separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JS. If you encounter any unexpected problems, please contact me or file a bug.

Update on the consultation about office actions[athraigh foinse]

Hello all,

Last month, the Wikimedia Foundation's Trust & Safety team announced a future consultation about partial and/or temporary office actions. We want to let you know that the draft version of this consultation has now been posted on Meta.

This is a draft. It is not intended to be the consultation itself, which will be posted on Meta likely in early September. Please do not treat this draft as a consultation. Instead, we ask your assistance in forming the final language for the consultation.

For that end, we would like your input over the next couple of weeks about what questions the consultation should ask about partial and temporary Foundation office action bans and how it should be formatted. Please post it on the draft talk page. Our goal is to provide space for the community to discuss all the aspects of these office actions that need to be discussed, and we want to ensure with your feedback that the consultation is presented in the best way to encourage frank and constructive conversation.

Please visit the consultation draft on Meta-wiki and leave your comments on the draft’s talk page about what the consultation should look like and what questions it should ask.

Thank you for your input! -- The Trust & Safety team 08:03, 16 Lúnasa 2019 (UTC)

Our goal in this call for feedback is to hear from across the community, so we encourage you to participate in the survey, the open letter, or both. The survey will go through 7 July in all timezones. Input from the survey and discussions will be analyzed and published on Meta-Wiki.

Thanks for thinking about the future of the movement, --The Brand Project team, 19:44, 2 Iúil 2020 (UTC)

Using Wikidata to create content[athraigh foinse]

Sorry about my English interjection here! I added quite a few Irish articles around 6 years ago, and also introduced Wikidata - I then created the automated list Úsáideoir:Llywelyn2000/Muintir na hÉireann b in Republic, wich takes a feed from Wikidata once a day. On the Welsh Wikipedia, some articles take in 95% of their content from Wikidata eg cy:Hampstead, Maryland. But one step at a time! I'd like to add a few extra templates, so that we can automate a few things, if that's ok. Let me know on my Talk page if I do something wrong, as I unfortunately have no Irish, or if you can help.

On Friday I added all 1,700+ taxon common name in Gaeilge na hÉireann (and all 5 other Celtic languages), which can now be used within gawiki. I'd like to develop a small project based on these bird names.... and Wikidata!

Slán.... Robin aka Llywelyn2000 (plé) 16:00, 18 Lúnasa 2020 (UTC)

OK. So I've added a few Wikidata templates and edited (as an example) the article on Spideog; please correct the intro 'Ainmneacha i dteangacha Ceilteacha eile:'. The code here can be copied to any other articles on species and will automatically generate Irish text.This will help to 'de-stub' short articles and add 'weight' to the wiki. Llywelyn2000 (plé) 06:58, 19 Lúnasa 2020 (UTC)
It's good to see the person infobox (Teimpléad:WD Bosca Sonraí Duine) calling up Wikidata! Brilliant Megan (Úsáideoir:Dowlinme) at work! Thanks Úsáideoir:TGcoa for your suggestions on the Spideog article, which I've taken aboard. The problem with placing the names in a table however is that some languages won't appear. For example if the name isn't on Wikidata, it will be blank in the table. The existing one-line-one-name format, however, will have no blanks and should look good. As soon as I've finalised the code I'll come back. Úsáideoir:Ériugena has agreed to keep an eye on the project, having done so much work on birds in the past. On the Welsh wiki we have discussions similar to this page (Lárionad comhphobail) every day, and it's called our Cafe; on the Breton wiki it's called a Tavern! Just food for thought!

Leabhair de chuid Coiscéim[athraigh foinse]

A chairde, roinnt blianta ó shin, rinne mé obair in éineacht leis an Ollamh Matt Hussey agus leis an bhfoilsitheoir Coiscéim chun an chiclipéid eolaíochta Fréamh an Eolais a chur ar fáil anseo. Bhí Úsáideoir:Ériugena i dteagmháil le Coiscéim le déanaí, agus dúirt siad go mbeidís sásta pictiúir dá gcuid leabhar, chomh maith le sonraí éagsúla (teideal, údar, b'fhéidir achoimre, srl), a chur ar fáil le foilsiú ar an Vicipéid. Creidim go mbeadh sé úsáideach níos mó leathanach a bhaineann le leabhair Ghaeilge a fheiceáil anseo. Ba mhaith linn an plean seo a phlé le riarthóirí na Vicipéide i dtús báire. I measc na rudaí le plé ná Polasaí "Suntasachta" na Vicipéide seo. Tá a fhios agam go bhfuil polasaí níos doichte ó thaobh suntasachta ar Vicipéid an Bhéarla (cf. en:Wikipedia:Notability_(books) mar shampla), ach creidim go mbeadh sé chun leas Vicipéid na Gaeilge polasaí níos réchúisí a chur i bhfeidhm. Ar Vicipéid na Breatnaise, glactar le leathanach a bhaineann le leabhar ar bith atá scríofa sa Bhreatnais, mar shampla (cf cy:Wicipedia:Amlygrwydd). Luíonn sé sin le réasún, dar liomsa, toisc nach bhfuil ach roinnt mílte leabhar i gceist acu (agus againne), i gcomparáid leis na milliúin i mBéarla. Bhur dtuairimí?

Ó thaobh suntasachta de, tá polasaí de facto níos leithne againn anseo le tamall anuas agus ábhar Éireannach i gceist, go mór mhór a bhaineann leis an Ghaeilge. Bheinn ar son polasaí foirmeálta a chur ar bun atá cosúil leis an bpolasaí sin acu ag Vicipéid na Breatnaise. Caithfidh go bhfuil a lán míreanna acu ag Wikimedia atá teorannta don Vicipéid úd, nach bhfuil? Maidir le pictiúir de chlúdaigh leabhar de chuid Choiscéim, nach gciallódh sin go mbeadh éinne faoin spéir ábalta iad a úsáid? Tá mé ag smaoineamh ar chipcheart. Buíochas ag gabháil leatsa agus le Ériugena as an méid oibre a bhíonn ar siúl agaibh (gan trácht ar dhaoine eile). SeoMac (plé) 08:25, 25 Meán Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
Míle buíochas, SeoMac! Pléifidh mé cúrsaí le hÉirugena; nílim cinnte faoi na cúrsaí cóipchirt ag an bpointe seo. Tá súil agam go mbeidh Coiscéim sásta na clúdaigh a chur ar fáil faoi CC/SA. Bheinn sásta le polasaí cosúil leis an gceann sa Bhreatnais freisin; b'fhéidir go ndéanfaidh mé iarracht aistriúchán a dhéanamh air sin, mar dhréacht ar aon nós. Beidh mé ar ais leat.

Due to copyright issues, book and album covers are uploaded onto the gawiki rather than Commons. However, the 'Uaslódáil comhad' button (left) is directed to Commons rather than gawiki. Therefore it's impossible to upload files on a fair use licence. I note that there are many images uploaded on this open licence in Teimpléad:Clúdach leabhair, therefore I take it that this has been changed by WMF / Meta as there isn't as yet an Irish Fair use policy / non-free policy. If it's desirable then we can redirect the 'Uaslódáil comhad' link from Commons to gawiki. Llywelyn2000 (plé) 15:08, 1 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
This link shows that there are 1,208 non-free images on gawiki; it also shows that only admins can upload. There's a discussion on creating a special wiki for non-free stuff here. Whether it comes or not, in order for non-free images to stay, we / Wikimedia Commons will need the relevant policies in place: eg Vicipéid:Leathanach tuairiscithe íomhá, en:Wikipedia:Non-free content criteria, en:Wikipedia:Non-free content (policy) and an en:Exemption Doctrine Policy. Then we can get the upload button in place and the book covers will stay on gawiki! Llywelyn2000 (plé) 15:45, 19 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)

Call for feedback about Wikimedia Foundation Bylaws changes and Board candidate rubric[athraigh foinse]

Hello. Apologies if you are not reading this message in your native language. Please help translate to your language.

Today the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees starts two calls for feedback. One is about changes to the Bylaws mainly to increase the Board size from 10 to 16 members. The other one is about a trustee candidate rubric to introduce new, more effective ways to evaluate new Board candidates. The Board welcomes your comments through 26 October. For more details, check the full announcement.

Thank you! Qgil-WMF (talk) 17:17, 7 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)

Na boscaí sonraí[athraigh foinse]

Tá lán naisc dearg agus focail Béarla sna boscaí sonraí {{WD Bosca Sonraí Duine}}. Conas is féidir seo a shocrú? Samalou (plé) 12:37, 19 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)

Ar an leathanach seo faoi Jacinda ArdenRoss Arden i ndath dearg. Tugann sin le fios nach bhfuil alt faoi Ross Arden ar fáil i nGaeilge ar an Vicipeid! Caithfidh duine an talt a scríobh, ansin is féidir leat dul go dtí Wikidata ( agus amharc i gcomhair 'Ross Adren' (, agus na sonraí faoi a chur isteach i nGaeilge.

Leanfaidh mé na céimeanna a bhfuil cuntas orthu thuas agus cinnteoidh mé go n-oibreoidh siad anois agus Ross Arden atá faoi láthair i ndath dearg san bosca sonraí a tiontú go dtí an dath dubh. Leanfaidh mé na céimeanna thuas luaiteagus má oibríonn siad, feicfidh tú a ainm i ndubh, ach beidh an t-ainm faoina bhun 'Clarke Gayford' fós i ndath dearg.

B’fhéidir go bhféadfá Clarke Gayford a chur le Vicipéid agus ansin dul chuig Wikidata i gcomhair Clarke Gayfors (beidh sé luaite freisin mar (Q52151947) agus an t-aistriúchán Gaeilge a chur leis?Ériugena (plé) 13:17, 19 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)

Am I making this place better or worse?[athraigh foinse]

I'm gonna write this in English. I want to get honest opinions from the community: am I making this Wiki worse by editing and me with imperfect Irish? An example of my translation: YBC 7289 (this version). That's about as good as I can muster, I've taken every precaution. I bet there are some mistakes in it, but how bad is it really? I don't want to contribute to a situation where an Vicipéad is covered with bad Irish. I'll try to use the Athbhreithniú template on everything from here on out, but I understand that there may not be enough man-hours from volunteers with high levels of Irish to correct everything. So should I stop editing and go study grammar for six months or a year instead, or should I keep editing and tagging for Athbhreithniú? Samalou (plé) 20:39, 20 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)

Hi Samalou; my two cents: we want you here and value your contributions to Wikipedia. But there's a lot you can do in terms of editing and improving articles even without fully fluent Irish. For example, several editors are in the process of changing articles to make heavier use of Wikidata-based templates (see Lu_Xun for one example); you could help with that work. If you have some technical skills, the templates themselves could use some improvement in terms of layout and what information is included. Many other articles lack images, category information, and interwiki links (to other language versions on the same topic). Again this is my opinion as an occasional contributor; others might feel differently. Kevin Scannell (plé) 12:57, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
I doubt my translation is perfect – YBC 7289 (this version) – but is it a disaster or is it kinda okay? I don't want to make the language look bad online, like the guy at Samalou (plé) 14:02, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
Is fearr Gaeilge bhriste ná Béarla cliste, you do you. I made big contributions to German language wiki only for them to be deleted rather than corrected. It's so disheartening. I'd second Kevin's suggestion. There's lots of Wikidata tools that can be used to beef up articles. Also translating from is a good place to start to create stubs, as google translate is less likely to mess it up. Bogger (plé) 14:48, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
I translated Jessica Alba from, as it was one of their starred articles. I noticed articles there are just lesser quality than on enwiki, fewer references etc., but it's still a good start. And while I do intend to contribute in less language-focused ways, that doesn't help me advance my Irish Samalou (plé) 15:02, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
As far as that YBC 7289 article goes, I made a first editing pass, just correcting grammatical errors. It took me a while, and I haven't even started trying to rephrase things in a more natural way. This puts a burden of work on the very small number of editors to clean these articles up (or we leave them, which means the quality of this Wikipedia remains poor — this is a big reason more fluent and native speakers aren't interested in contributing — that's my main worry). My advice would be to look for some of these other ways to contribute until you get more experience with the language. Kevin Scannell (plé) 14:59, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for your honesty. That was my worry also Samalou (plé) 15:02, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
Apart from YBC 7289, ones I've translated that need a glanadh are Jessica Alba, Hetaira, Sara Forbes Bonetta, Dina bint Abdul-Hamid, Collaíocht sa tSean-Róimh (←pretty long), Próta-Ind-Eorpais (← longest). I won't make any new translations while those are being cleaned up. Samalou (plé) 15:23, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
There is plenty of work to do without perfect Irish. You aren't like the guy on Scots Wiki and it's a good thing you are here. There's a knack for realizing limitations and not going further. If whole articles from English are too much to handle, scale back. Do less ambitious ones where you can use older articles as templates. Kevin outlined some work with deploying Wikidata-based templates. There is also information to be updated elsewhere: the figures on the Covid-19 table, mar shampla. Agus ansin tá Liosta tíortha de réir daonra agus Liosta tíortha de réir OTI, agus araile. Tá sé tábhachtach, freisin, staidéar a dhéanamh ar an teanga, mar a luaigh tú. Léigh a lán freisin agus scríobh. Fiú mura gcaitheann tú an oiread sin ama anseo ar feadh tamaill. SeoMac (plé) 17:15, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
One thing I'd be interested in doing is increasing the amount of citations and referencing. Take the front-page article on Piaras Béaslaí mar shampla; it's long and detailed, but it's really just based on one book. Or Mars (pláinéad) has huge uncited sections though it's otherwise thar barr. It makes it look like we're holding ourselves to lower encyclopædic standards than other Vicipéadanna. É sin ráite, mo chuid Gaeilge a chleachtadh cuspóir atá agam. I just need to study a bit more grammar and I should be able to make less terrible translations. And sure we're locked indoors for six weeks now so plenty of time to practice. Samalou (plé) 21:15, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
Sin smaoineamh maith. References are lacking. When they are links on the English Wikipedia, they can be checked to see if they are still live. And we are not limited to the Eng. Wiki either. SeoMac (plé) 21:42, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
Cinnte. Some of the references on Próta-Ind-Eorpais I pulled out of books because the enwiki ones weren't the best. Samalou (plé) 21:46, 21 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
