Movement Learning and Leadership Development Project


The Wikimedia Foundation’s Community Development team is seeking to learn more about the way volunteers learn and develop into the many different roles that exist in the movement. Our goal is to build a movement informed framework that provides shared clarity and outlines accessible pathways on how to grow and develop skills within the movement. To this end, we are looking to speak with you, our community to learn about your journey as a Wikimedia volunteer. Whether you joined yesterday or have been here from the very start, we want to hear about the many ways volunteers join and contribute to our movement.

To learn more about the project, please visit the Meta page. If you are interested in participating in the project, please complete this simple Google form.

Additional interface for edit conflicts on talk pages

Sorry, for writing this text in English. If you could help to translate it, it would be appreciated.

You might know the new interface for edit conflicts (currently a beta feature). Now, Wikimedia Germany is designing an additional interface to solve edit conflicts on talk pages. This interface is shown to you when you write on a discussion page and another person writes a discussion post in the same line and saves it before you do. With this additional editing conflict interface you can adjust the order of the comments and edit your comment. We are inviting everyone to have a look at the planned feature. Let us know what you think on our central feedback page! -- For the Technical Wishes Team: Max Klemm (WMDE) 14:14, 26 Feabhra 2020 (UTC)

Annual contest Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos

Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (WPWP)

This is to invite you to join the Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (WPWP) campaign to help improve Wikipedia articles with photos and win prizes. The campaign starts today 1st July 2020 and closes 31st August 2020.

The campaign primarily aims at using images from Wikimedia Commons on Wikipedia articles that are lacking images. Participants will choose among Wikipedia pages without photo images, then add a suitable file from among the many thousands of photos in the Wikimedia Commons, especially those uploaded from thematic contests (Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth, Wiki Loves Folklore, etc.) over the years.

Please visit the campaign page to learn more about the WPWP Campaign.

Feedback on movement names

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

There are a lot of conversations happening about the future of our movement names. We hope that you are part of these discussions and that your community is represented.

Since 16 June, the Foundation Brand Team has been running a survey in 7 languages about 3 naming options. There are also community members sharing concerns about renaming in a Community Open Letter.

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)

Note: The survey is conducted via a third-party service, which may subject it to additional terms. For more information on privacy and data-handling, see the survey privacy statement.

Using Wikidata to create content

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! And it's good to talk! Llywelyn2000 (plé) 06:53, 20 Lúnasa 2020 (UTC)

Leabhair de chuid Coiscéim

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. Kevin Scannell (plé) 19:37, 27 Meán Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
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)
Ok, Béarla ar an am seo, brón orm, as we've many people here that may not be fluent. I added the ping command here yesterday, so let's try that out! @SeoMac:, @Evertype:, @Kevin Scannell:, @Ériugena: - I think things need to happen in this order;
  • Draft a set of policies around non-free, fair-use media. From what I've seen, this needs to be compliant to US law, as well as laws within the jurisdiction of where this content would normally be accessed (thus, Ireland). Policy here. They're called out above, but I think we as a community need to draft these now and come to consensus on the text.
  • Here are the guidelines for Non-Free Content
  • I think we can look at policies for other minority language wikis, and leverage their wording for the most part.

Am I making this place better or worse?

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)

Fearaimid fáilte roimh mholtaí agus ceartúcháin. Fágfaidh mé an chéad chéim eile faoi na riarthóirí! GRMA Kevin Scannell (plé) 22:32, 27 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)

A chairde, ba mhaith liom buíochas a ghabháil ach go háirithe le Robin Llwyd ab Owain, Kevin Scannell agus Pádraig Ó Snodaigh as a gcabhair agus a spreagadh chun an dréachtbheartas seo a dhréachtú. (
D'impeoinn ar dhaoine eile nóta i bhfabhar a scríobh chuig 'Halla Baile', gan a thuilleadh moille.Ériugena (plé) 11:53, 28 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
  • Nóta i bhfabhar (gabh mo leithscéal ar mo Béarla) it is fantastic to have more policies set out to facilitate this kind of collaboration and work! Smirkybec (plé) 13:55, 28 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
Ba chóir dúinn WikiProjects a dhéanamh? M sh. . D'fhéadfadh sin an t-obair a chuir in ord? Samalou (plé) 19:07, 28 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
I bhfabhar freisin. Sea! Díríonn gach duine ar rud amháin! Le chéile ... Llywelyn2000 (plé) 19:54, 28 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
Tá ceithre cinéal Wikiprojects ('ViciTionscadal'?) ba mhaith liom iad a fheacáil: 1) cursaí Éireannaigh/Ceiltigh, 2) "the basics", ailt atá ag teastail ag aon ciclipéad maith, 3) glanadh, go h-áirithe glanadh an caighdeán Gaeilge, 4) aistriúchán alt an-mhaith; chun "Wikipedia rabbitholes" a cruthú Samalou (plé) 21:03, 28 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)
  • I bhfabhar freisin. Ar fheabhas! Agus aontaím leat, a Smirkybec, faoin "WikiProjects" - smaoineamh maith! - Alison 17:57, 29 Deireadh Fómhair 2020 (UTC)

Cruinniú ar líne d’eagarthóirí teanga Ceilteacha - Online meeting for Celtic language editors

Dia duit gach duine! Féadfaidh tú a bheith páirteach i Wikimedia UK i mí na Samhna le haghaidh díospóireacht Celtic Knot ar na deich mbliana amach romhainn dár ngluaiseacht.

Reáchtálfaidh muid cruinniú 2 uair ar líne d’eagarthóirí agus d’eagraithe pobail atá ag obair ar theangacha Ceilteacha (Coirnis, Gaeilge, Manainnis, Gàidhlig na hAlban agus Breatnais) chun tosaíochtaí agus mianta atá againn faoi thodhchaí na bpobal seo a phlé. An tosaíocht é eispéireas an úsáideora a fheabhsú? Cad mar gheall ar shábháilteacht agus chuimsiú níos fearr? Nó ceannairí pobail a fhorbairt laistigh de do wiki? Déanaimis plé ar na rudaí is tábhachtaí le go n-éireoidh le do phobal.

Ní gá duit a bheith mar phríomh-ranníocóir i do wiki, ach an fonn cuidiú le do phobal! Tá súil agam tú a fheiceáil ann. Cláraigh tríd an bhfoirm thíos a chomhlánú agus leanfaimid leis an eolas a cheangal cúpla lá roimh ré. Nasc chuig cruinniú ar líne Llywelyn2000 (plé) 12:55, 9 Samhain 2020 (UTC)

  • Beidh mé ansin! - Alison 05:57, 12 Samhain 2020 (UTC)

Sonraí WikiData

(Béarla le nóimead)

Hi all - I've been trying to put sense on the WikiData being reflected through via infoboxes here, as well as WikiData being pulled into articles, etc. So, hopefully, you should start to see a lot of the Béarla that's appearing there, slowly vanish. That said, I've made a good few hundred translations over on WikiData - can someone possibly scan through them for correctness / context? I don't trust myself to be 100% accurate!! Mile buioch! - Alison 06:00, 12 Samhain 2020 (UTC)

Also, possibly check Module:Webarchive for accuracy? - Alison 01:09, 13 Samhain 2020 (UTC)
I took a quick first look at a couple things. I'll try to follow up. GRMMA as do shaothar uilig. SeoMac (plé) 09:08, 13 Samhain 2020 (UTC)!

@Alison and SeoMac: It's good to hear you discussing using WD inside an article as well as in infoboxes! You can do this, for example on information which constantly changes eg population. If you add this code:


on the article on An Phortaingéil, for example, you will get:

An Phortaingéil has a current population of 10,347,892 (2021)[1].

together with relevant references to the latest census. Really handy, but disallowed on every wiki other than Welsh!!!

If using on any other country, town, village etc just change the Qid from Portugal's Q45 to the new one. You can get this on Wikidata eg Spain's Qid is Q29 and Ireland's code is Q27. By doing this, populations become alive, updated automatically, morphing and you breath live into an otherwise stagnant, redundant, fossilised wiki. Llywelyn2000 (plé) 13:39, 11 Nollaig 2020 (UTC)

Maidir le Polasaí na Suntasachta

Aon scéal faoin bPolasaí Suntasachta.... an bhfuil sé ceadaithe agus curtha i bhfeidhm ag riarthóirí na Vicipeide go fóill? Ériugena (plé) 12:38, 6 Nollaig 2020 (UTC)

Fadhb a roinnt

Tá an méid seo a leanas ráite ag Vincent Morley; Tá ainmneacha pearsanta litrithe de réir chleachtas an lae inniu i gcás aon duine a bhí suas tar éis imeacht na n-Iarlaí ('Seán Ó Murchú' seachas 'Seaghán Ua Murchadha') ach d'úsáideas litriú seanda i gcás na ndaoine a mhair roimh an 17ú céad ('Diarmaid Mac Murchadha' seachas 'Diarmaid Mac Murchú'). (Tagairt: Ó Chéitinn go Raiftearaí, Coiscéim 2001. Lth ix). B'fhéidir go bhfuil tuairimí/comhairle ag daoine eile faoin ábhar seo? Ériugena (plé) 14:44, 7 Nollaig 2020 (UTC)
