Nominations are being accepted for 2015 Wikimedia Foundation elections[muokkaa | muokkaa wikitekstiä]

This is a message from the 2015 Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee. Translations are available.

Wmf logo vert pms.svg

Greetings,

I am pleased to announce that nominations are now being accepted for the 2015 Wikimedia Foundation Elections. This year the Board and the FDC Staff are looking for a diverse set of candidates from regions and projects that are traditionally under-represented on the board and in the movement as well as candidates with experience in technology, product or finance. To this end they have published letters describing what they think is needed and, recognizing that those who know the community the best are the community themselves, the election committee is accepting nominations for community members you think should run and will reach out to those nominated to provide them with information about the job and the election process.

This year, elections are being held for the following roles:

Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees is the decision-making body that is ultimately responsible for the long term sustainability of the Foundation, so we value wide input into its selection. There are three positions being filled. More information about this role can be found at the board elections page.

Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC)
The Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) makes recommendations about how to allocate Wikimedia movement funds to eligible entities. There are five positions being filled. More information about this role can be found at the FDC elections page.

Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) Ombud
The FDC Ombud receives complaints and feedback about the FDC process, investigates complaints at the request of the Board of Trustees, and summarizes the investigations and feedback for the Board of Trustees on an annual basis. One position is being filled. More information about this role can be found at the FDC Ombudsperson elections page.

The candidacy submission phase lasts from 00:00 UTC April 20 to 23:59 UTC May 5 for the Board and from 00:00 UTCApril 20 to 23:59 UTC April 30 for the FDC and FDC Ombudsperson. This year, we are accepting both self-nominations and nominations of others. More information on this election and the nomination process can be found on the 2015 Wikimedia elections page on Meta-Wiki.

Please feel free to post a note about the election on your project's village pump. Any questions related to the election can be posted on the talk page on Meta, or sent to the election committee's mailing list, board-elections -at- wikimedia.org

On behalf of the Elections Committee,
-Gregory Varnum (User:Varnent)
Coordinator, 2015 Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee

Pywikibot compat will no longer be supported - Please migrate to pywikibot core[muokkaa | muokkaa wikitekstiä]

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,
The Pywikibot development team, 19:30, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

Avoin kulttuuridata hyötykäyttöön -projekti starttaa heinäkuussa[muokkaa | muokkaa wikitekstiä]

Wikidatan paikkatietoa sisältävät kohteet kesäkuussa 2015

Wikimedia Suomi käynnistää projektin Avoin kulttuuridata hyötykäyttöön. Sen tavoite on opiskella yhdessä organisaatioiden kanssa Wikidatan hyötykäyttöä. Rahoitusta on saatu Opetus- ja kulttuuriministeriöltä etupäässä kulttuurin datan viemiseksi Wikidataan, mutta samassa yhteydessä voimme opetella Wikidataa yhdessä ja laajemmin. Osallistuvia organisaatioita / mukaan otettavia aineistoja ovat

Lisäksi odotamme vastausta parilta osallistujataholta.

Yllä mainitulla sivulla voit ilmaista kiinnostuksesi osallistumiseen, kommentoida projektia keskustelusivulla ja ehdottaa tapoja, joilla saamme Wikipedia-yhteisön parhaiten mukaan yhdessä oppimaan. Wikimedia Suomella on projektista lisäksi sen rahoitukseen, hallinnointiin ja raportointiin liittyvä sivu. Tervetuloa mukaan! – (Lisätty linkit) – Susannaanas 28. kesäkuuta 2015 kello 15.16 (EEST)

näyttää hyvältä. --Zache (keskustelu) 28. kesäkuuta 2015 kello 15.26 (EEST)

Tulisitko mukaan suunnittelemaan Wikidatan kouluttamista/opettelemista: organisaatioiden kanssa järjestettävää työpajapäivää ja Wikipediaan tehtäviä tietoiskuja? Tuotamme aineistoa aluksi projektin sivuille, mutta muukin paikka Wikiavaruudessa on mahdollinen. Työpajapäivä on todennäköisesti lokakuun alussa. --Susannaanas (keskustelu) 29. heinäkuuta 2015 kello 10.28 (EEST)

Proposal to create PNG thumbnails of static GIF images[muokkaa | muokkaa wikitekstiä]

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 (keskustelu) 24. heinäkuuta 2015 kello 08.08 (EEST)
