Να ξεκαθαρίσω μιας και κάποιοι με ρώτησαν για αυτή την ανάρτηση ότι δεν την έγραψα εγώ απλά ο γραφών είναι συνονόματος μου (Ζάχον). Τώρα πάνω στα λεγόμενα του: Πιστεύω πως κατα μία ερμηνεία (προσωπική) μας ενθαρρύνει να κάνουμε πιο ποιοτικά τα άρθρα μας. Έχει αρκετό δίκιο και όταν φτάσουμε ένα μέγεθος από εκεί και πέρα θα πρέπει να αρχίσουμε να ενισχύουμε ποιοτικά τα τότε υπάρχοντα άρθρα. Προσωπικά πρώτη φορά άκουσα για σύγχρονη ποντιακή λογοτεχνία και έψαξα πληροφορίες. Πιστεύω πως μέσα στις διακοπές θα καταφέρω να πάρω αυτό το βιβλίο να το διαβάσω και να μελετήσω καλύτερα και την γλώσσα.--ZaDiak 20:12, 25 Καλομηνά 2009 (UTC)

Γραφειοκράτης[άλλαξον]

Παιδιά έγινα επισήμως και γραφειοκράτης αφού μου έδωσαν τα δικαιώματα οι stewards. Έτσι σύυμφωνα με την ψηφοφορία που έχουμε κάνει έδωσα δικαιώματα διαχειριστή στους χρήστες Makedonier, Omnipaedista, Sinopeus.--ZaDiak 15:47, 8 Απρίλ 2009 (UTC)

Βικιθήκη[άλλαξον]

Παιδιά ήθελα να αναρτήσω μερικά ποντιακά κείμενα κι έτσι έφτιαξα Κάτι σαν test project στα ποντιακά για να βάζουμε εκεί προσωρινά τα κείμενα. Δεν δημιούργησα πρόταση οπότε ξεκαθαρίζω ότι αυτό δεν πρόκειται για δουλειά για ένα νέο εγχείρημα. Εδώ θα το βρείτε έχει κάποια λάθη στους τίτλους των καλάντων μιας και δεν ξέρω πάρα πολύ καλά τη γλώσσα. Μέχρι στιγμής έχω αναρτήσει τα κάλαντα χριστουγέννων και πρωτοχρονιάς και έχω ξεκινήσει να αναρτώ την γραμματική του Τοπχαρά.--ZaDiak 13:36, 12 Καλομηνά 2009 (UTC)

Πολύ καλή η δουλειά σου. Άρχισα να αναρτώ και εγώ κείμενα στο Old Wikisource. --Omnipaedista 07:20, 25 Καλομηνά 2009 (UTC)

Πλαϊνή Μπάρα[άλλαξον]

Μιας και κανείς δεν ανανέωνει τα Ατωριζνά γεγονότα (Τρέχοντα γεγονότα) τοποθέτησα στη θέση τους στην πλαϊνή μπάρα το Αργαστέρ (Αμμοδοχείο) το οποίο τροποποίησα λιγάκι έτσι ώστε να καθαρίζει από μόνο του.--ZaDiak 09:12, 18 Καλομηνά 2009 (

Παρατηρήσεις σχετικά με τη γραφή και την ερμηνεία[άλλαξον]

Αγαπητοί φίλοι, διαχειριστές και αρθρογράφοι της "Βικιπαίδεια σα Ποντιακά" δημοσίευσα ένα άρθρο στο blog μου σχετικά με την ορθή γραφή της διαλέκτου μας. Αν θέλετε ρίξτε μια ματιά: http://mavropouloskostas.wordpress.com/%ce%ba%ce%b1%ce%bd%cf%8c%ce%bd%ce%b5%cf%82-%cf%80%cf%81%ce%bf%cf%86%ce%bf%cf%81%ce%ac%cf%82-%cf%80%ce%bf%ce%bd%cf%84%ce%b9%ce%b1%ce%ba%ce%ae%cf%82-%ce%b4%ce%b9%ce%b1%ce%bb%ce%ad%ce%ba%cf%84%ce%bf/

ΑΝΑΓΚΑΙΟΤΗΤΑ ΚΑΤΑΓΡΑΦΗΣ ΣΤΗ ΒΙΚΙΠΑΙΔΕΙΑ ΣΥΓΧΡΟΝΗΣ ΓΡΑΜΜΑΤΙΚΗΣ ΤΗΣ ΠΟΝΤΙΑΚΗΣ ΔΙΑΛΕΚΤΟΥ ΚΑΙ ΛΕΞΙΚΟΥ[άλλαξον]

Φίλοι διαχειριστές της ποντιακής Βικιπαίδειας, θεωρώ εντελώς απαραίτητη προϋπόθεση για την επιτυχία του σημαντικότατου για τον Ποντιακό Ελληνισμό, αλλά και για τους αδελφούς Πόντιους των άλλων χωρών, εγχειρήματός σας να αρχίσει να διαμορφώνεται στην ποντιακή Βικιπαίδεια ένα βασικό σύγχρονο, απλό και χρηστικό λεξικό της κοινής ποντιακής διαλέκτου (ευθύ και αντίστροφο) και μία σύγχρονη, απλή και εύχρηστη γραμματική της. Όλα τα άρθρα και τα κείμενα που θα γράφονται στα ποντιακά πρέπει να συμφωνούν γενικά, χωρίς να περιορίζεται ο διαλεκτικός πλούτος της Ποντιακής, με το παραπάνω αναφερόμενο λεξικό και τη γραμματική, για να μην υπάρξει ίσως ο κίνδυνος να αυτοκαταστραφεί από περιττή και μη ελεγχόμενη πολυμορφία μία τόσο σημαντική προσπάθεια. Με μεγάλη εκτίμηση για τις μέχρι σήμερα πολύ σημαντικές προσπάθειές σας. --Κώτσον 10:56, 15 Κερασινού 2009 (UTC)

Δες, και συμπλήρωσε ή διόρθωσε, στην αρχική σελίδα Βικιπαίδεια:Λεχτικόν, Βικιπαίδεια:Γραμματικήν

Ποντιακόν γραμματικήν[άλλαξον]

Σο λήμμαν Τοπχαράς ές την βιογραφίαν τη Τοπχάρα που συνέγραψεν τη γραμματικήν εμούν. Μακάρ να ανεβάζ' ατό κάποιος για να διεβάζετ' ατό. Κάτ θα μαθάνετε. Αλλά θα σχολιάζατο αδακά γιατι θαρρώ πως οτι εςς να εφτάει με τα θεμέλια τη γλώσσας εμούν πρεπ να διεβάζετ' ατά ουλ.

Μπράβο σον Τοπχαρά π' έγραψεν την ποντιακήν γραμματικήν. Αναμένω όμως ας έναν πόντιον φιλόλογον να γράφτ άλλο καλίον γραμματικήν γιατί ο Τοπχαράς εν έναν κσάι απλός. Ντο εννοώ; καταρχάς η Ορθογραφίαν 'ατ εν πολλά απλόν. Οι Πόντιοι εν Ίωνικόν φύλλον και τα λέξεις έχνε κοινά ρίζας. Ατό σημαίν' ότι έχνε και κοινόν ορθογραφίαν και τα δομάς των λέξεων πρεπ να ομοιάζνε. Ο Τοπχαράς γραφτ για τον "ιποθετικόν" τρόπον. Ατό εν λάθος γιατί η γραφήν κι εν greekpont αλλά εν ελληνικόν γραφήν. Τα ρίζας, τα πνεύματα, τα σύμβολα εν όμοια σα ποντιακά και σα Ελληνικά. Επομένως και σα ποντιακά η λέξη γράφκεται "υποθετικόν τρόπον" με "υ". Όμοια, τα λάθη ντε φτάει εν σα ακόλουθα λέξεις: Ιποταχτικόν, το άρθρο "ι" αλλά και γενικώς σε όλα τα λέξεις εςς λάθος ορθογραφίαν. Σην Ελληνικην τη γλώσσαν (σ' ατό περιλαμβάνεται και η ποντιακή) η ορθογραφίαν εν πολλά συμαντικόν γιατί δεκνείζ παρα πολλά.

Αλλά κι έν μαναχόν τα ορθογραφικά λάθην ατ που εφτάνε το έργον ατ πολλά απλοϊκόν. Εν και η δομήν των λέξεων. Κι χωρίζ δηλαδή τα λέξεις ασ σα προθέσεις και ασου συνδέσμους αλλά εφτάει πολυλέξεις. Για παράδειγμαν λέει: "ταντονιμίας" αντίς "τ' αντωνυμίας" Το φαινόμενον ατό λέ' ατο συντραβηγμόν αλλά αν δέχκουμες ατό κι θα πρέπ να δέχκουμες ατό και σην διδασκαλίαν τη αρχαίας ελληνικής; Η γνώμη μ' έν ότι πρέπ να βάλουμε απόστροφόν χωρίς να ενούνταν τα λέξεις.

Έλεα πως τα ποντιακά έχνε συγγένειαν με την Ιωνικήν διάλεκτον κ' ατό πρέπ να εν η αφετερία τη λογικής εμούν. Πολλά κόσμος, εφέκεν την πατρίδαν κ' επήεν ση Ρωσίαν πρόσφυας αλλά ατό κι σημαίν ότι πρέπ να βάλομε με το ζόρ' το Ρωσικόν προφοράν σην ποντιακή γραμματικήν. Αποφάσισαμε να διδάσκουμες την Αττικήν διάλεκτον τη αρχαίας γλώσσας σα σχολεία γιατί εν πολλά λόγιος και έμορφεσσα. Με το ίδιον σκεπτικόν, σωστό τρόπος να καλατσέβομε και να γράφτουμε τα ποντιακά κι εν ο τρόπον τη Τασκένδης αλλά ο τρόπον τη Τραπεζούντας. Πολλά αγαπούμε τα αδέρφιαν εμούν που εέντοναν πρόσφυγας σην Ρωσίαν αλλά η καρδία τη Πόντονος εν σην Τραπεζούντα, ση Σαμσούντα, ση Ματσούκα.

Για τ' ατό παρακαλώ όποιος εν πόντιος φιλόλογος με ρίζας ας σην Τραπεζούντα ας γράφτ έναν σωστόν λεξικόν και γραμματικήν και το έργον ατ θα απομέν αιώνια σην ιστορίαν.

Κάτ ακόμη θέλω να λέω για τον συμβολισμόν των γραμμάτων σα λέξεις. Ποίος ές πραγματικόν ανάγκην να συμβολίζ το πως πρεπ να διεβάσκεται έναν γράμμαν; Ας τερούμε για παράδεγμα τη λέξην "τα τεσσάρια". Σα ποντιακά διεβάσκεται "τεσσάρια" και σα νεοελληνικά "τεσσάργια". Για τ' αούτο τα ποντιακά εν πολλά χρήσιμον γλώσσα για να δεκνείζ και τοι Έλληνες πως έν ο σωστόν τρόπος διεβάσματος. Το ποντιακόν γλώσσαν θαρώ πρέπ να διδάσκεται και σην φιλολογικήν σχολήν για να έχνε οι φιλόλοοι, οι γλωσσολόοι κλπ καλλίον αντίληψην τη Ελληνική γλώσσας. --Stravon 15:39, 22 Σταυρί 2009 (UTC)

Ποντιακά[άλλαξον]

Ημέρα πανηγυρισμού για τα Ποντιακά σήμερα!!! Έπειτα από σχετική εισήγησή μου προς το Ethnologue θα αναγνωριστεί ότι η Ποντιακή έχει 1.058.068 ομιλητές. Φυσικά και ο αριθμός είναι μεγαλύτερος αλλά η επιτυχία είναι τεράστια αν αναλογιστεί κανείς το γεγονός ότι ο αριθμός τριπλασιάζεται σε σχέση με πριν!! Έτσι αποκτάμε ένα αρκετά αξιόλογο μέγεθος σε ομιλητές και γενικά ανεβαίνουμε γλωσσολογικά!! Οι αλλαγές θα εφαρμοστούν στην 17η έκδοση του βιβλίου και η ιστοσελίδα θα αργήσει να ενημερωθεί λιγάκι.--ZaDiak 22:53, 18 Aλωναρί 2009 (UTC)

Πράγματι ο αριθμός σχεδόν τριπλασιάζεται! Ελπίζω ότι και αυτός ο τριπλασιασμός θα μετακυλιστεί και στα άρθρα μας εδώ, σε αριθμό και περιεκτικότητα!--Consta 17:37, 19 Aλωναρί 2009 (UTC)

Ποντιακόν καλατσήν[άλλαξον]

Το καλάτσεμαν σα ποντιακά σίγουρα θα ζορλαεύ' αρκετούς, εμέ πα, γιατί ούλ' εγέμναμε τη πόλης τα παιδία και εμοντέρνεψαμε. Οσήμερον λέμε πως έν δύσκολον να καλατσεύομε σα ποντιακά τα σύγχρονα τα όρους αλλά έχω έναν ερωτησην να εφτάγω σας. Σο φροντιστήριον τη Τραπεζούντος μαναχόν για χαβίτς εμαθάναν τα παιδία; 'Κ' είχαν επιστημονικόν καλατσήν;

Αν ζορλαεύκουμες ατώρα εν γιατί ενέσπαλαμε τα ποντιακά και αν 'κι μιλούμ' ατα ξάι τότες τα παιδίαν εμούν 'κι θα μαθάν' ατα ξάι. Ζορλάεμαν - ξεζορλάεμαν, αδαπές πρέπ' ούλ' να μιλούμε ποντιακά γιατί τα λέξεις εν αλλά εμείς 'κι ξερομ' ατα. --Stravon 14:18, 1 Σταυρί 2009 (UTC)

Φίλε Stravοn, σο φροντιστήριον τη Τραπεζούντος μαναχόν για χαβίτς 'κι εμαθάναν τα παιδία, αλλά είχαν για επιστημονικόν καλατσήν το ελλενικόν τη γλώσσαν; Σα ποντιακά τα σύγχρονα τα όρους εμείς 'τουν πρέπ΄ να ευρίουμ' ατα. Υείας και χαιρετίας!--Κώτσον 09:19, 13 Σταυρί 2009 (UTC)
Εγώ δεν μπορώ να μιλήσω ποντιακά ωστόσο μπορώ να τα καταλάβω άνετα. Το θέμα που θίγεις είναι πολύ ενδιαφέρον και συμφωνώ μαζί σου. Πρέπει να αρχίσουμε να καλατσεύομε στα ποντιακά. Αυτό θα βοηθήσει και για τη διάδοση. Τώρα όσο αφορά το Φροντιστήριο της Τραπεζούντας δεν γνωρίζω το θέμα που θέτεις. Απο εδώ και πέρα θα προσπαθώ να μιλάω και εγώ ποντιακά όπου μπορώ και θα γράψω οδηγίες που θα ενθαρρύνεται η ομιλία στο ποντιακά. Χαιρετίας,--ZaDiak 21:44, 1 Σταυρί 2009 (UTC)
Θαρρώ πως το σώσιμον τη ποντικής τη γλώσσας 'κι εν απλώς έναν γραφικόν θέμαν. Έν ίσως το μοναδικόν γλώσσαν που έσ' ακόμη συγγένειαν με τα αρχαία. 'Κι έν μαναχόν ποντιακόν ζήτεμα, έν ελληνικόν πα. Το παλαλόν με το θέμαν εμούν έν ότι πάει να χάται η ποντιακήν κι ας είμαστε χαμά-χαμά 4-5 εκατομμύρια Πόντιοι σ' ούλον τον κόσμον. Ατό 'κι εν θάνατον τη γλώσσας αλλά χαραλάεμαν ατς. Εν γλωσσικόν αυτοκτονίαν. Εθάρναμε, και εγώ ασ αουτούς έμνε, ότι εν πιο μοντέρνο να καλατσεύομε Ελληνικά. Ετίρτεβαν νε μας κιόλα οι ντόπιοι και έπαιζανε μας και εμείς ένοιθαμε άσχεμα. Πλύσην εγκεφάλου εποίνανε μας με τα ανέκδοτά τουν. Ατώρα όμως πρεπ' να εγνεφούμε προτού να έν πολλά αργά. Και θαρρώ ότι πρέπ' να ξεκινούμε ασήν γραφήν. Πρέπ' να συμφωνούμε πώς εν το σωστόν να γράφκουνταν τα ποντιακά γιατί χωρίς σωστόν συμβολισμόν χάται η προφοράν. Έρχινεσα να αλλάζω και τα παραθύρα μ' (windows xp) σα ποντιακά αλλά χρειάσκουμαι βοήθειαν σοι ορισμούς για να έν σωστοί. Ας πούμε το "Save" μετάφρασα το σε "τοπλάεμα" αλλά πρέπ' να συμφωνούν κι άλλ' για να εβγαίν'νε τα πρώτα ποντιακά παραθύρα. Όσοι θέλετε να βοηθάτε με γράψτε έναν μήνυμα.--Stravon 00:55, 3 Σταυρί 2009 (UTC)

Εγώ θα ήμουν παραπάνω από χαρούμενος να σε βοηθήσω αλλά θα μου ήταν προτιμότερο να μιλούσαμε μέσω μέιλ ή irc ή msn ή οτιδήποτε τέτοιο. Όποτε ξαναμπείς γράψε μου έναν τρόπο να έρθουμε σε επικοινωνία. Στο μεταξύ θα πρότεινα να αρχίσεις να συνεισφέρεις κι εσύ στην Βικιπαίδεια γιατί είναι από τις πιο γνωστές ποντιακές ιστοσελίδες ανάμεσα στους ποντίους και σίγουρα μέσα στισ 4-5 πιο γνωστές στους μη-πόντιους. Έτσι θα διατηρηθεί κι η γλώσσα. Υ.Γ. Συγνώμη που δεν μιλάω στα Ποντιακά αλλά δεν έχω την απαραίτητη εξοικείωση. Με τον καιρό θα προσπαθήσω να τα ενσωματώσω στην ομιλία μου.--ZaDiak 21:59, 3 Σταυρί 2009 (UTC)

The LocalisationUpdate extension has gone live[άλλαξον]

The LocalisationUpdate extension is now enabled for all Wikimedia projects. From now on new localisations that become available in SVN will become available to your project within 24 hours. Your localisations get into SVN from translatewiki.net typically within a day and at worst in two days. This is a huge improvement from the old practice where the localisations became available with new software. This could take weeks, even months.

The localisations done by our community at translatewiki.net are committed to SVN typically every day. When the system messages in English are the same as the local messages, they will now be inserted in a file and are available for use in all our projects in a timely manner

What this means for you[άλλαξον]

Local messages have an impact on the performance of our system. It is best when messages are as much as possible part of the system messages. In order to remove unnecessary duplication, all the messages that have a local localisation and are exactly the same as the system message will be removed. What we ask you to do is to compare and proof read the messages in translatewiki.net and the local messages. You can then either remove local messages when the translatewiki.net message is to be preferred or, you can update the message at translatewiki.net.

Messages that are specific to your project will have to stay as they are. You do want to check if the format and the variables of the message are still the same.

Why localise at translatewiki.net[άλλαξον]

When you localise at translatewiki.net, your messages will be used in all Wikimedia projects and eventually in all MediaWiki based projects. This is how we provide the standard support for your language. When messages change, at translatewiki.net you will be prompted to revisit your translations. Localising is more efficient because we have innovated the process to make you more efficient; there is text explaining about messages and we have applied AJAX technology to reduce the number of clicks you have to make.

Translatewiki.net update[άλλαξον]

  • Currently 44.60% of the MediaWiki messages and 0.70% of the messages of the extensions used by the Wikimedia Foundation projects have been localised. Please help us help your language by localising and proof reading at translatewiki.net. This is the recent localisation activity for your language. Thanks, GerardM 14:04, 30 Σταυρί 2009 (UTC)
  • Currently 44.90% of the MediaWiki messages and 0.71% of the messages of the extensions used by the Wikimedia Foundation projects have been localised.

How can we improve the usability for your language[άλλαξον]

We expect that with the implementation of LocalisationUpdate the usability of MediaWiki for your language will improve. We are now ready to look at other aspects of usability for your language as well. There are two questions we would like you to answer: Are there issues with the new functionality of the Usability Initiative Does MediaWiki support your language properly

The best way to answer the first question is to visit the translatewiki.net. Change the language to your language, select the “vector” skin and add the advanced tool bar in in the preferences and check out the new functionality. And make some changes in your user page. When there is a need to improve on the localisation, please make the necessary changess . It should update your localisation straight away. We would like you to report each issue individually at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Usability_issues.

When there are problems with the support of MediaWiki for your language, we really want to know about this. It is best to report each issue separately. In this way there will be no large mass of issues to resolve but we can address each issue on its own. Consider issues with the display of characters, the presentation of your script, the position of the side bar, the combination of text with other languages, scripts. It is best to try this in an environment like the prototype wiki as it provides you with a clean, basic and up to date environment. The prototype wiki is available for five languages but you can select any of them, change the preferences to your language and test out MediaWiki for your language.

We would like you to report each issue individually at http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Language_issues. The issues you raise will all be assessed. It is important to keep each issue separate, because this will make it easier to understand the issues and find solutions.

Αναδιαμόρφωση[άλλαξον]

Μετά από πολύ σκέψη αποφάσισα πως πρέπει να προχωρήσουμε σε αναδιαμόρφωση στην Βικιπαίδεια. Ύστερα από το απαραίτητο καλάτσεμαν αποφάσισα τα εξής:

  • Έπειτα από συζήτηση με τον Στράβων και την μεγάλη του προθυμία να συνεισφέρει για να του δοθεί όλη η διευκόλυνση θα γίνει νοματέας.
  • Όλοι οι υπόλοιποι νοματέοι θα πρέπει εντός εύλογου χρονικού διαστήματος να δηλώσουν ότι εξακολουθούν να θέλουν να ασχοληθούν με την εγκυκλοπαίδεια και να το πράξουν όσο το δυνατόν γρηγορότερα.
  • Εγώ πήρα απόφαση να εκτελέσω τα δικαιώματα μου μέχρι να βρεθεί κάποιος άλλος ενδιαφερόμενος για να γίνει γραφειοκράτης. Τότε θα παραιτηθώ και θα μείνω μόνο επιβλέπων.
  • Οι αφαιρέσεις θα εκτελεστούν όλες μαζί όταν βρεθεί και ο νέος γραφειοκράτης. Ο γραφειοκράτης πέρα από τις απαραίτητες γλωσσικές δεξιότητες θα πρέπει να έχει δείξει το έργο του για αρκετό καιρό στο εγχείρημα και να έχει και τις απαραίτητες γνώσεις κώδικα.
  • Όποιος ενδιαφέρεται πέρα από τη θέση του γραφειοκράτη μπορεί να δηλώσει και για νοματέας.

Συμφωνώ βεβαίως με την παραχωρήρηση δικαιωμάτων διαχειριστή στον Stravon. Αν και είναι σχετικά νεός χρήστης, υπήρξε από τους πιο ενεργούς το τελευταίο δίμηνο, και δείχνει να κατέχει καλά τη γλώσσα, και ότι είναι πρόθυμος να συνεισφέρει γενικότερα. Όσο για την αναδιαμόρφωση που προτείνεται επίσης συμφωνώ ότι είναι αναπόφευκτη. Σε κάθε περίπτωση δηλώνω ότι ενδιαφέρομαι να ανανεωθούν τα προνόμια μου ως διαχειριστή: κατ'ουσίαν εγώ ήμουν αυτός που διέγραψε άμεσα όλες τις βανδαλιστικές σελίδες που δημιουργήθηκαν κατά το τελευταίο τρίμηνο και θα ήθελα να συνεχίσω να προστατεύω το εγχείρημα κατ' αυτόν τον τρόπο, αλλά και να μπορώ να επεμβαίνω εποικοδομητικά στην κύρια σελίδα όποτε χρειαστεί, όπως έκανα πρόσφατα. Προβληματίζομαι όμως από το γεγονός ότι κανείς δεν έχει δηλώσει ακόμα ενδιαφέρον για τη θέση του γραφειοκράτη. Ίσως πρέπει να κανονίσουμε, όλοι οι ενεργοί χρήστες, μία συνάντηση στο IRC, για να το συζητήσουμε πιο ενδελεχώς αυτό το ζήτημα. --Omnipaedista 07:13, 21 Τρυγομηνά 2009 (UTC)

Αγαπητοί φίλοι και συμπατριώτες,

η καλή σας προσπάθεια για να έχει θετικά αποτελέσματα, θα πρέπει να υποστηρίζεται από επαρκείς φιλολόγους ποντίους ή και άλλους συμπατριώτες μας που γνωρίζουν καλή σύνταξη και γραμματική της ποντιακής, οι οποίοι θα πρέπει να προσκληθούν για να υποστηρίξουν την αξιαίπενη προσπάθειά σας (πχ. υπάρχει ο Πανελλήνιος Σύλλογος Ποντίων Εκπαιδευτικών, επίσης αξιόλογοι επιστήμονες στην Επιτροπή Ποντιακών Μελετών κλπ με πολούς επαίοντες που θα μπορούσαν να συμβάλλουν στην διόρθωση της Ηλεκτρονικής Ποντιακής Εγκυκλοπαίδειας).

Τα λάθη Ως ΠΡΟς ΤΗΝ ΟΡΘΟΓΡΑΦΊΑ ΚΑΙ ΤΗΝ ΣΎΝΤΑΞΗ πάντως, οφείλω να ομολογήσω οτι είναι σοβαρά και θα πρέπει να τα προσέξετε, για να συντείνετε και εσείς σε μια καλύτερη βάση δεδομένων μιας γλώσσας που χάνετα (ειδικά ως προς την προφορά κατά την ανάγνωση. πχ ζζ κλπ). Η Γραμματική Τοπχαρά (πλην της ιστορικής αξίας της πάντως), δεν νομίζω οτι μπορεί να συμβάλει ως προς την νοηματική και ετυμολογική κατανόηση της διαλέκτου μας.

Καλή δύναμη και καλή προσπάθεια!

Η κριτική όταν είναι γόνιμη και καλόπιστη πρέπει να εισακούεται.

2010 Fundraising Is Almost Here[άλλαξον]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

Hello Wikipedians, I am Theo and I am working for the Wikimedia Foundation during the 2010 Fundraiser. My job is to be the liaison between your community and the Foundation. This year's fundraiser is intended to be a collaborative and global effort; we recognize that banner messages which may perform well in the United States don't necessarily translate well, or appeal to international audiences.

I'm contacting you as I am currently looking for translators who are willing to contribute to this project by helping translate and localize messages into different languages and suggesting messages that would appeal to your readers on the Fundraising Meta Page. We've started the setup on meta for both banner submission, statistical analysis, and grouping volunteers together.
Use the talk pages on meta, talk to your local communities, talk to others, talk to us, and add your feedback to the proposed messages as well! I look forward to working with you during this year's fundraiser. If someone could translate this message I would really appreciate it so that everyone is able to understand our goals and contribute to this year's campaign.

Astonishing[άλλαξον]

Bonjour,

Why is this Wikipedia silent, almost dead ?

Budelberger 21:33, 14 Κούντουρονος 2011 (UTC) (Flag of France.svg).

It would be an exaggeration to call it silent or dead. Undoubtedly, the activity has been low during the last months. This is because most of the original contributors have retired from editing this wiki (in fact I am the only one left). There are new contributors (alas, anonymous) though who carry on. --Omnipaedista 15:43, 17 Κούντουρονος 2011 (UTC)

Call for image filter referendum[άλλαξον]

The Wikimedia Foundation, at the direction of the Board of Trustees, will be holding a vote to determine whether members of the community support the creation and usage of an opt-in personal image filter, which would allow readers to voluntarily screen particular types of images strictly for their own account.

Further details and educational materials will be available shortly. The referendum is scheduled for 12-27 August, 2011, and will be conducted on servers hosted by a neutral third party. Referendum details, officials, voting requirements, and supporting materials will be posted at Meta:Image filter referendum shortly.

Sorry for delivering you a message in English. Please help translate the pages on the referendum on Meta and join the translators mailing list.

Announcing Wikipedia 1.19 beta[άλλαξον]

Wikimedia Foundation is getting ready to push out 1.19 to all the WMF-hosted wikis. As we finish wrapping up our code review, you can test the new version right now on beta.wmflabs.org. For more information, please read the release notes or the start of the final announcement.

The following are the areas that you will probably be most interested in:

  • Faster loading of javascript files makes dependency tracking more important.
  • New common*.css files usable by skins instead of having to copy piles of generic styles from MonoBook or Vector's css.
  • The default user signature now contains a talk link in addition to the user link.
  • Searching blocked usernames in block log is now clearer.
  • Better timezone recognition in user preferences.
  • Improved diff readability for colorblind people.
  • The interwiki links table can now be accessed also when the interwiki cache is used (used in the API and the Interwiki extension).
  • More gender support (for instance in logs and user lists).
  • Language converter improved, e.g. it now works depending on the page content language.
  • Time and number-formatting magic words also now depend on the page content language.
  • Bidirectional support further improved after 1.18.

Report any problems on the labs beta wiki and we'll work to address them before they software is released to the production wikis.

Note that this cluster does have SUL but it is not integrated with SUL in production, so you'll need to create another account. You should avoid using the same password as you use here. — Global message delivery 16:29, 15 Καλανταρί 2012 (UTC)

Language support group for Pontic[άλλαξον]

The Wikimedia Foundation has brought together a new team of developers who are dedicated to language support. This team is to support all the languages and consequently it is not realistic to expect that the team members can provide proper support for your language. It is for this reason that we are looking for volunteers who will make up a language support team.

This language support team will be asked to provide us with information about their language. Such information may need to be provided either to us or on a website that we will indicate to you. Another activity will be to test software that will likely have an effect on the running of the MediaWiki software. We are looking for people who clearly identify their ability. Formal knowledge is definitely appreciated.

As much of the activity will be concentrated on translatewiki.net, it will be a plus when team members know how to localise at translatewiki.net.

Update on IPv6[άλλαξον]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it, as well as the full version of this announcement on Meta)

The Wikimedia Foundation is planning to do limited testing of IPv6 on June 2-3. If there are not too many problems, we may fully enable IPv6 on World IPv6 day (June 6), and keep it enabled.

What this means for your project:

  • At least on June 2-3, 2012, you may see a small number of edits from IPv6 addresses, which are in the form "2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334". See e.g. w:en:IPv6 address. These addresses should behave like any other IP address: You can leave messages on their talk pages; you can track their contributions; you can block them. (See the full version of this announcement for notes on range blocks.)
  • In the mid term, some user scripts and tools will need to be adapted for IPv6.
  • We suspect that IPv6 usage is going to be very low initially, meaning that abuse should be manageable, and we will assist in the monitoring of the situation.

Read the full version of this announcement on how to test the behavior of IPv6 with various tools and how to leave bug reports, and to find a fuller analysis of the implications of the IPv6 migration.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2011 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We are interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year 2011. Any user registered at Commons or a Wikimedia wiki SUL-related to Commons with more than 75 edits before 1 April 2012 (UTC) is welcome to vote and, of course everyone is welcome to view!

Detailed information about the contest can be found at the introductory page.

About 600 of the best of Wikimedia Common's photos, animations, movies and graphics were chosen –by the international Wikimedia Commons community– out of 12 million files during 2011 and are now called Featured Pictures.

From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons Features Pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories.

We regret that you receive this message in English; we intended to use banners to notify you in your native language but there was both, human and technical resistance.

See you on Commons! --Picture of the Year 2011 Committee 18:35, 5 Κερασινού 2012 (UTC)

Help decide about more than $10 million of Wikimedia donations in the coming year[άλλαξον]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language. Please consider translating it)

Hi,

As many of you are aware, the Wikimedia Board of Trustees recently initiated important changes in the way that money is being distributed within the Wikimedia movement. As part of this, a new community-led "Funds Dissemination Committee" (FDC) is currently being set up. Already in 2012-13, its recommendations will guide the decisions about the distribution of over 10 million US dollars among the Foundation, chapters and other eligible entities.

Now, seven capable, knowledgeable and trustworthy community members are sought to volunteer on the initial Funds Dissemination Committee. It is expected to take up its work in September. In addition, a community member is sought to be the Ombudsperson for the FDC process. If you are interested in joining the committee, read the call for volunteers. Nominations are planned to close on August 15.

  • HighBeam Research has access to over 80 million articles from 6,500 publications including newspapers, magazines, academic journals, newswires, trade magazines and encyclopedias. Thousands of new articles are added daily, and archives date back over 25 years covering a wide range of subjects and industries. There are 250 full access 1-year accounts available. All you need is a 1-year old account with 1000 edits. Sign up here.
  • Questia is an online research library for books and journal articles focusing on the humanities and social sciences. Questia has curated titles from over 300 trusted publishers including 77,000 full-text books and 4 million journal, magazine, and newspaper articles, as well as encyclopedia entries. There will soon be 1000 full access 1-year accounts available. All you need is a 1-year old account with 1000 edits. Sign up here.

Wikidata is getting close to a first roll-out[άλλαξον]

Wikimedia Foundation RGB logo with text.svg

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.)

As some of you might already have heard Wikimedia Deutschland is working on a new Wikimedia project. It is called m:Wikidata. The goal of Wikidata is to become a central data repository for the Wikipedias, its sister projects and the world. In the future it will hold data like the number of inhabitants of a country, the date of birth of a famous person or the length of a river. These can then be used in all Wikimedia projects and outside of them.

The project is divided into three phases and "we are getting close to roll-out the first phase". The phases are:

  1. language links in the Wikipedias (making it possible to store the links between the language editions of an article just once in Wikidata instead of in each linked article)
  2. infoboxes (making it possible to store the data that is currently in infoboxes in one central place and share the data)
  3. lists (making it possible to create lists and similar things based on queries to Wikidata so they update automatically when new data is added or modified)

It'd be great if you could join us, test the demo version, provide feedback and take part in the development of Wikidata. You can find all the relevant information including an FAQ and sign-up links for our on-wiki newsletter on the Wikidata page on Meta.

For further discussions please use this talk page (if you are uncomfortable writing in English you can also write in your native language there) or point me to the place where your discussion is happening so I can answer there.

Fundraising localization: volunteers from outside the USA needed[άλλαξον]

Please translate for your local community

Hello All,

The Wikimedia Foundation's Fundraising team have begun our 'User Experience' project, with the goal of understanding the donation experience in different countries outside the USA and enhancing the localization of our donation pages. I am searching for volunteers to spend 30 minutes on a Skype chat with me, reviewing their own country's donation pages. It will be done on a 'usability' format (I will ask you to read the text and go through the donation flow) and will be asking your feedback in the meanwhile.

The only pre-requisite is for the volunteer to actually live in the country and to have access to at least one donation method that we offer for that country (mainly credit/debit card, but also real-time banking like IDEAL, E-wallets, etc...) so we can do a live test and see if the donation goes through. All volunteers will be reimbursed of the donations that eventually succeed (and they will be low amounts, like 1-2 dollars)

By helping us you are actually helping thousands of people to support our mission of free knowledge across the world. Please sing up and help us with our 'User Experience' project! :) If you are interested (or know of anyone who could be) please email ppena@wikimedia.org. All countries needed (excepting USA)!

Thanks!

Be a Wikimedia fundraising "User Experience" volunteer![άλλαξον]

Thank you to everyone who volunteered last year on the Wikimedia fundraising 'User Experience' project. We have talked to many different people in different countries and their feedback has helped us immensely in restructuring our pages. If you haven't heard of it yet, the 'User Experience' project has the goal of understanding the donation experience in different countries (outside the USA) and enhancing the localization of our donation pages.

I am (still) searching for volunteers to spend some time on a Skype chat with me, reviewing their own country's donation pages. It will be done on a 'usability' format (I will ask you to read the text and go through the donation flow) and will be asking your feedback in the meanwhile.

The only pre-requisite is for the volunteer to actually live in the country and to have access to at least one donation method that we offer for that country (mainly credit/debit card, but also real time banking like IDEAL, E-wallets, etc...) so we can do a live test and see if the donation goes through. **All volunteers will be reimbursed of the donations that eventually succeed (and they will be very low amounts, like 1-2 dollars)**

By helping us you are actually helping thousands of people to support our mission of free knowledge across the world. If you are interested (or know of anyone who could be) please email ppena@wikimedia.org. All countries needed (excepting USA)!!

Thanks!

Wikimedia sites to move to primary data center in Ashburn, Virginia. Read-only mode expected.[άλλαξον]

(Apologies if this message isn't in your language.) Next week, the Wikimedia Foundation will transition its main technical operations to a new data center in Ashburn, Virginia, USA. This is intended to improve the technical performance and reliability of all Wikimedia sites, including this wiki. There will be some times when the site will be in read-only mode, and there may be full outages; the current target windows for the migration are January 22nd, 23rd and 24th, 2013, from 17:00 to 01:00 UTC (see other timezones on timeanddate.com). More information is available in the full announcement.

If you would like to stay informed of future technical upgrades, consider becoming a Tech ambassador and joining the ambassadors mailing list. You will be able to help your fellow Wikimedians have a voice in technical discussions and be notified of important decisions.

Thank you for your help and your understanding.

Wikidata phase 1 (language links) coming to this Wikipedia[άλλαξον]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg

Sorry for writing in English. I hope someone can translate this locally.

Wikidata has been in development for a few months now. It is now time for the roll-out of the first part of it on your Wikipedia. Phase 1 is the support for the management of language links. It is already being used on the Hungarian, Hebrew, Italian and English Wikipedias. The next step is to enable the extension on all other Wikipedias. We have currently planned this for March 6.

What is Wikidata?[άλλαξον]

Wikidata is a central place to store data that you can usually find in infoboxes. Think of it as something like Wikimedia Commons but for data (like the number of inhabitants of a country or the length of a river) instead of multimedia. The first part of this project (centralizing language links) is being rolled out now. The more fancy things will follow later.

What is going to happen?[άλλαξον]

Language links in the sidebar are going to come from Wikidata in addition to the ones in the wiki text. To edit them, scroll to the bottom of the language links, and click edit. You no longer need to maintain these links by hand in the wiki text of the article.

Where can I find more information and ask questions?[άλλαξον]

Editors on en:wp have created a great page with all the necessary information for editors and there is also an FAQ for this deployment. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

I want to be kept up to date about Wikidata[άλλαξον]

Convert complex templates to Lua to make them faster and more powerful[άλλαξον]

(Please consider translating this message for the benefit of your fellow Wikimedians)

Greetings. As you might have seen on the Wikimedia tech blog or the tech ambassadors list, a new functionality called "Lua" is being enabled on all Wikimedia sites today. Lua is a scripting language that enables you to write faster and more powerful MediaWiki templates.

If you have questions about how to convert existing templates to Lua (or how to create new ones), we'll be holding two support sessions on IRC next week: one on Wednesday (for Oceania, Asia & America) and one on Friday (for Europe, Africa & America); see m:IRC office hours for the details. If you can't make it, you can also get help at mw:Talk:Lua scripting.

If you'd like to learn about this kind of events earlier in advance, consider becoming a Tech ambassador by subscribing to the mailing list. You will also be able to help your fellow Wikimedians have a voice in technical discussions and be notified of important decisions.

Wikidata phase 2 (infoboxes) coming to this Wikipedia[άλλαξον]

Wikidata-logo-en.svg

Sorry for writing in English. I hope someone can translate this. If you understand German better than English you can have a look at the announcement on de:Wikipedia:Kurier.

A while ago the first phase of Wikidata was enabled on this Wikipedia. This means you are getting the language links in each article from Wikidata. It is soon time to enable the second phase of Wikidata (infoboxes) here. We have already done this on the [first 11 Wikipedias] (it, he, hu, ru, tr, uk, uz, hr, bs, sr, sh) and things are looking good. The next step is English Wikipedia. This is planned for April 8. If everything works out fine we will deploy on all remaining Wikipedias on April 10. I will update this part of the FAQ if there are any issues forcing us to change this date. I will also sent another note to this village pump once the deployment is finished.

What will happen once we have phase 2 enabled here? Once it is enabled in a few days you will be able to make use of the structured data that is available on Wikidata in your articles/infoboxes. It includes things like the symbol for a chemical element, the ISBN for a book or the top level domain of a country. (None of this will happen automatically. Someone will have to change the article or infobox template for this to happen!)

How will this work? There are two ways to access the data:

  • Use a parser function like {{#property:p169}} in the wiki text of the article on Yahoo!. This will return “Marissa Mayer” as she is the chief executive officer of the company.
  • For more complicated things you can use Lua. The documentation for this is here.

We are working on expanding the parser function so you can for example use {{#property:chief executive officer}} instead of {{#property:p169}}. The complete plan for this is here.

Where can I test this? You can already test it on test2.

Where can I find more information and ask questions? We have collected the main questions in an FAQ for this deployment. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

Hello!

There is a new request for comment on Meta-Wiki concerning the removal of administrative rights from long-term inactive Wikimedians. Generally, this proposal from stewards would apply to wikis without an administrators' review process.

We are also compiling a list of projects with procedures for removing inactive administrators on the talk page of the request for comment. Feel free to add your project(s) to the list if you have a policy on administrator inactivity.

All input is appreciated. The discussion may close as soon as 21 May 2013 (2013-05-21), but this will be extended if needed.

Wikidata phase 2 (infoboxes) is here[άλλαξον]

A while ago the first phase of Wikidata was enabled on this Wikipedia. This means you are getting the language links in each article from Wikidata. We have now enabled the second phase of Wikidata (infoboxes) here. We have already done this on the [first 11 Wikipedias] (it, he, hu, ru, tr, uk, uz, hr, bs, sr, sh) a month ago and two days ago on the English Wikipedia. Today all the remaining Wikipedias followed.

What does having phase 2 enabled here mean? You are now able to make use of the structured data that is available on Wikidata in your articles/infoboxes. It includes things like the symbol for a chemical element, the ISBN for a book or the top level domain of a country. (None of this will happen automatically. Someone will have to change the article or infobox template for this to happen!) The current state is just the beginning though. It will be extended based on feedback we get from you now.

How will this work? There are two ways to access the data:

  • Use a parser function like {{#property:p159}} in the wiki text of the article on Wikimedia Foundation. This will return “San Francisco” as that is the headquarter location of the non-profit.
  • For more complicated things you can use Lua. The documentation for this is here.

We are working on expanding the parser function so you can for example use {{#property:headquarter location}} instead of {{#property:p159}}. The complete plan for this is here.

Where can I test this? You can test it on test2 if you don't want to do it in an article here.

Where can I find more information and ask questions? We have collected the main questions in an FAQ for this deployment. Please ask questions you might have on the FAQ’s discussion page.

I want to be kept up to date about Wikidata To stay up-to-date on everything happening around Wikidata please subscribe to the newsletter that is delivered weekly to subscribed user’s talk pages.

[en] Change to wiki account system and account renaming[άλλαξον]

[en] Change to section edit links[άλλαξον]

The default position of the "edit" link in page section headers is going to change soon. The "edit" link will be positioned adjacent to the page header text rather than floating opposite it.

Section edit links will be to the immediate right of section titles, instead of on the far right. If you're an editor of one of the wikis which already implemented this change, nothing will substantially change for you; however, scripts and gadgets depending on the previous implementation of section edit links will have to be adjusted to continue working; however, nothing else should break even if they are not updated in time.

Detailed information and a timeline is available on meta.

Ideas to do this all the way to 2009 at least. It is often difficult to track which of several potential section edit links on the far right is associated with the correct section, and many readers and anonymous or new editors may even be failing to notice section edit links at all, since they read section titles, which are far away from the links.

VisualEditor and your Wikipedia[άλλαξον]

(Please translate this message)

Greetings,

The Wikimedia Foundation will soon turn on VisualEditor for all users, all the time on your Wikipedia. Right now your Wikipedia does not have any local documents on VisualEditor, and we hope that your community can change that. To find out about how you can help with translations visit the TranslationCentral for VisualEditor and read the easy instructions on bringing information to your Wikipedia. The User Guide and the FAQ are very important to have in your language.

We want to find out as much as we can from you about VisualEditor and how it helps your Wikipedia, and having local pages is a great way to start. We also encourage you to leave feedback on Mediawiki where the community can offer ideas, opinions, and point out bugs that may still exist in the software that need to be reported to Bugzilla. If you are able to speak for the concerns of others in English on MediaWiki or locally I encourage you to help your community to be represented in this process.

If you can help translate the user interface for VisualEditor to your language, you can help with that as well. Translatewiki has open tasks for translating VisualEditor. A direct link to translate the user interface is here. You can see how we are doing with those translations here. You need an account on Translatewiki to translate. This account is free and easy to create.

If we can help your community in any way with this process, please let me know and I will do my best to assist your Wikipedia with this |exciting development. You can contact me on my meta talk page or by email. You can also contact Patrick Earley for help with translations and documents on Mediawiki.

Greetings!

Notifications will inform users about new activity that affects them on this wiki in a unified way: for example, this new tool will let you know when you have new talk page messages, edit reverts, mentions or links -- and is designed to augment (rather than replace) the watchlist. The Wikimedia Foundation's editor engagement team developed this tool (code-named 'Echo') earlier this year, to help users contribute more productively to MediaWiki projects.

We're now getting ready to bring Notifications to almost all other Wikimedia sites, and are aiming for a 22 October deployment, as outlined in this release plan. It is important that notifications is translated for all of the languages we serve.

There are three major points of translation needed to be either done or checked:

Introducting Beta Features[άλλαξον]

(Apologies for writing in English. Please translate if necessary)

We would like to let you know about Beta Features, a new program from the Wikimedia Foundation that lets you try out new features before they are released for everyone.

Think of it as a digital laboratory where community members can preview upcoming software and give feedback to help improve them. This special preference page lets designers and engineers experiment with new features on a broad scale, but in a way that's not disruptive.

Beta Features is now ready for testing on MediaWiki.org. It will also be released on Wikimedia Commons and MetaWiki this Thursday, 7 November. Based on test results, the plan is to release it on all wikis worldwide on 21 November, 2013.

Here are the first features you can test this week:

Would you like to try out Beta Features now? After you log in on MediaWiki.org, a small 'Beta' link will appear next to your 'Preferences'. Click on it to see features you can test, check the ones you want, then click 'Save'. Learn more on the Beta Features page.

After you've tested Beta Features, please let the developers know what you think on this discussion page -- or report any bugs here on Bugzilla. You're also welcome to join this IRC office hours chat on Friday, 8 November at 18:30 UTC.

Beta Features was developed by the Wikimedia Foundation's Design, Multimedia and VisualEditor teams. Along with other developers, they will be adding new features to this experimental program every few weeks. They are very grateful to all the community members who helped create this project — and look forward to many more productive collaborations in the future.

Enjoy, and don't forget to let developers know what you think! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 20:30, 5 Αεργί 2013 (UTC)

Request for comment on Commons: Should Wikimedia support MP4 video?[άλλαξον]

I apologize for this message being only in English. Please translate it if needed to help your community.

The Wikimedia Foundation's multimedia team seeks community guidance on a proposal to support the MP4 video format. This digital video standard is used widely around the world to record, edit and watch videos on mobile phones, desktop computers and home video devices. It is also known as H.264/MPEG-4 or AVC.

Supporting the MP4 format would make it much easier for our users to view and contribute video on Wikipedia and Wikimedia projects -- and video files could be offered in dual formats on our sites, so we could continue to support current open formats (WebM and Ogg Theora).

However, MP4 is a patent-encumbered format, and using a proprietary format would be a departure from our current practice of only supporting open formats on our sites -- even though the licenses appear to have acceptable legal terms, with only a small fee required.

We would appreciate your guidance on whether or not to support MP4. Our Request for Comments presents views both in favor and against MP4 support, based on opinions we’ve heard in our discussions with community and team members.

Please join this RfC -- and share your advice.

All users are welcome to participate, whether you are active on Commons, Wikipedia, other Wikimedia project -- or any site that uses content from our free media repository.

You are also welcome to join tomorrow's Office hours chat on IRC, this Thursday, January 16, at 19:00 UTC, if you would like to discuss this project with our team and other community members.

We look forward to a constructive discussion with you, so we can make a more informed decision together on this important topic. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 06:46, 16 Καλανταρί 2014 (UTC)

Universal Language Selector will be enabled by default again on this wiki by 21 February 2014[άλλαξον]

On January 21 2014 the MediaWiki extension Universal Language Selector (ULS) was disabled on this wiki. A new preference was added for logged-in users to turn on ULS. This was done to prevent slow loading of pages due to ULS webfonts, a behaviour that had been observed by the Wikimedia Technical Operations team on some wikis.

We are now ready to enable ULS again. The temporary preference to enable ULS will be removed. A new checkbox has been added to the Language Panel to enable/disable font delivery. This will be unchecked by default for this wiki, but can be selected at any time by the users to enable webfonts. This is an interim solution while we improve the feature of webfonts delivery.

From March 16 to April 15 we will organise the Catalan Culture Challenge, a Wikipedia editing contest in which victory will go to those who start and improve the greatest number of articles about 50 key figures of Catalan culture. You can take part by creating or expanding articles on these people in your native language (or any other one you speak). It would be lovely to have you on board. :-)

We look forward to seeing you!

Changes to the default site typography coming soon[άλλαξον]

This week, the typography on Wikimedia sites will be updated for all readers and editors who use the default "Vector" skin. This change will involve new serif fonts for some headings, small tweaks to body content fonts, text size, text color, and spacing between elements. The schedule is:

  • April 1st: non-Wikipedia projects will see this change live
  • April 3rd: Wikipedias will see this change live

This change is very similar to the "Typography Update" Beta Feature that has been available on Wikimedia projects since November 2013. After several rounds of testing and with feedback from the community, this Beta Feature will be disabled and successful aspects enabled in the default site appearance. Users who are logged in may still choose to use another skin, or alter their personal CSS, if they prefer a different appearance. Local common CSS styles will also apply as normal, for issues with local styles and scripts that impact all users.

No one needs free knowledge in Esperanto[άλλαξον]

There is a current discussion on German Wikipedia on a decision of Asaf Bartov, Head of WMF Grants and Global South Partnerships, Wikimedia Foundation, who rejected a request for funding a proposal from wikipedians from eowiki one year ago with the explanation the existence, cultivation, and growth of the Esperanto Wikipedia does not advance our educational mission. No one needs free knowledge in Esperanto. On meta there has also started a discussion about that decision. --Holder (talk) 10:46, 5 Καλομηνά 2014 (UTC)

Using only UploadWizard for uploads[άλλαξον]

Wikimedia Commons logo

Hello! It was noted that on this wiki you have less than 10 local files. Presumably, you therefore don't have interest nor energies to have hundreds templates with the now required HTML, even less a local EDP. However, this means that users here will experience a mostly broken and/or illegal uploading. I propose to

so that you can avoid local maintenance and all users can have a functioning, easy upload interface in their own language. All registered users can upload on Commons and existing files will not be affected.

I'll get this done in one week from now.

  1. If you disagree with the proposal, just remove your wiki from the list.
  2. To make the UploadWizard even better, please tell your experience and ideas on commons:Commons:Upload Wizard feedback.

Media Viewer[άλλαξον]


Greetings, my apologies for writing in English.

I wanted to let you know that Media Viewer will be released to this wiki in the coming weeks. Media Viewer allows readers of Wikimedia projects to have an enhanced view of files without having to visit the file page, but with more detail than a thumbnail. You can try Media Viewer out now by turning it on in your Beta Features. If you do not enjoy Media Viewer or if it interferes with your work after it is turned on you will be able to disable Media Viewer as well in your preferences. I invite you to share what you think about Media Viewer and how it can be made better in the future.

Thank you for your time. - Keegan (WMF) 21:29, 23 Καλομηνά 2014 (UTC)

Media Viewer is now live on this wiki[άλλαξον]


Media Viewer lets you see images in larger size

Greetings— and sorry for writing in English, please translate if it will help your community,

The Wikimedia Foundation's Multimedia team is happy to announce that Media Viewer was just released on this site today.

Media Viewer displays images in larger size when you click on their thumbnails, to provide a better viewing experience. Users can now view images faster and more clearly, without having to jump to separate pages — and its user interface is more intuitive, offering easy access to full-resolution images and information, with links to the file repository for editing. The tool has been tested extensively across all Wikimedia wikis over the past six months as a Beta Feature and has been released to the largest Wikipedias, all language Wikisources, and the English Wikivoyage already.

If you do not like this feature, you can easily turn it off by clicking on "Disable Media Viewer" at the bottom of the screen, pulling up the information panel (or in your your preferences) whether you have an account or not. Learn more in this Media Viewer Help page.

Please let us know if you have any questions or comments about Media Viewer. You are invited to share your feedback in this discussion on MediaWiki.org in any language, to help improve this feature. You are also welcome to take this quick survey in English, en français, o español.

We hope you enjoy Media Viewer. Many thanks to all the community members who helped make it possible. - Fabrice Florin (WMF) (talk) 21:54, 19 Κερασινού 2014 (UTC)

Απόδοση από Νέα Ελληνικά[άλλαξον]

Γεια. Αν κάποιος έχει τη διάθεση, θα ήθελα να με βοηθήσει να αποδόσω 2 παραγράφους για μια αθλητική ομάδα από τα Νέα Ελληνικά. Xaris333 (talk) 23:54, 11 Aλωναρί 2014 (UTC)

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decisions[άλλαξον]

The Wikimedia Foundation recently created a new feature, "superprotect" status. The purpose is to prevent pages from being edited by elected administrators -- but permitting WMF staff to edit them. It has been put to use in only one case: to protect the deployment of the Media Viewer software on German Wikipedia, in defiance of a clear decision of that community to disable the feature by default, unless users decide to enable it.

If you oppose these actions, please add your name to this letter. If you know non-Wikimedians who support our vision for the free sharing of knowledge, and would like to add their names to the list, please ask them to sign an identical version of the letter on change.org.

Process ideas for software development[άλλαξον]

’’My apologies for writing in English.’’

Hello,

I am notifying you that a brainstorming session has been started on Meta to help the Wikimedia Foundation increase and better affect community participation in software development across all wiki projects. Basically, how can you be more involved in helping to create features on Wikimedia projects? We are inviting all interested users to voice their ideas on how communities can be more involved and informed in the product development process at the Wikimedia Foundation. It would be very appreciated if you could translate this message to help inform your local communities as well.

I and the rest of my team welcome you to participate. We hope to see you on Meta.

Kind regards, -- Rdicerb (WMF) talk 22:15, 21 Aλωναρί 2014 (UTC)
