Ανακοίνωση διαχειριστικής υποψηφιότητας[επεξεργασία]

Ανακοινώνω από εδώ ότι θέτω υποψηφιότητα παραχώρησης δικαιωμάτων για τα Ελληνικά Βικιφθέγματα. Προτίθομαι να χρησιμοποιήσω την ιδιότητα για την συντήρηση, προστασία (όπου και όποτε χρειάζεται) και βελτίωση του εγχειρήματος. Εκτός αυτού, υπάρχει ελάχιστη δραστηριότητα. Nikosgranturismogt (συζήτηση) 18:02, 2 Σεπτεμβρίου 2019 (UTC)[απάντηση]

  • Κατά προς το παρόν, Nikosgranturismogt θα πρότεινα να ασχοληθείς λιγάκι πρώτα να εξοικειωθείς με το εγχείρημα και μετά να ζητήσεις διακαιώματα διαχειριστή. Από την ανακοίνωση δεν βλέπω κάποιον συγκεκριμμένο λόγο να τα χρειάζεσαι, και από τις συνεισφορές σου δεν βλέπω να έχεις συμμετάσχει αρκετά. —Ah3kal (συζήτηση) 04:32, 9 Σεπτεμβρίου 2019 (UTC)[απάντηση]

Ευχαριστώ για την άποψη σου. Είχα κάνει την αίτηση με βάση την εμπειρία από την Βικιπαίδεια και την απουσία χρηστών-διαχειριστών στο εγχείρημα. Λίγο-πολύ γνωρίζω την δραστηριότητα (δεν έχει μεταβληθεί ιδιαίτερα τα τελευταία δύο χρόνια, σύμφωνα με τα στατιστικά), θα ξαναϋποβάλλω σε μερικούς μήνες μόλις μυηθώ και εδώ. Nikosgranturismogt (συζήτηση) 01:19, 10 Σεπτεμβρίου 2019 (UTC)[απάντηση]

Nikosgranturismogt: Δεν χρειάζονται μήνες (για μένα τουλάχιστον) απλά ασχολήσου λίγο καιρό (π.χ. 1-2 εβδομάδες) για να εξοικειωθείς με το εγχείρημα και εγώ θα σε στηρίξω (θα σε προτείνω κιόλας αν θες). Μέχρι την υποψηφιότητα ουσιαστικά ασχολήθηκες 1 μέρα. Μακάρι να σου αρέσει και να μείνεις. Θα σε βοηθήσω σε ότι χρειαστείς. —Ah3kal (συζήτηση) 02:59, 10 Σεπτεμβρίου 2019 (UTC)[απάντηση]
Nikosgranturismogt:ΥΓ. Από την άλλη, δεν πιστεύω ότι θα κάνεις κάποιο κακό, και αν είναι τα δικαιώματα να σου δώσουν κίνητρο να δουλέψεις λίγο παραπάνω εδώ το εγχείρημα θα βγει οφελημένο, οπότε το αλλάζω σε Υπέρ. —Ah3kal (συζήτηση) 07:50, 10 Σεπτεμβρίου 2019 (UTC)[απάντηση]

Υποψηφιότητα διαχειριστή[επεξεργασία]

Αγαπητοί χρήστες των ελληνικών βικιφθεγμάτων,

Με το παρόν, θα ήθελα να καταθέσω υποψηφιότητα ως διαχειριστής του εγχειρήματος. Έχω υπάρξει στο παρελθόν 2 συνεχόμενες φορές, από 9 Ιουνίου 2017 έως 2 Σεπτεμβρίου 2018 (τις παλιές αιτήσεις μπορείτε να δείτε εδώ), οπότε και δεν ανανεώθηκε καθώς για προσωπικούς λόγους δεν μπορούσα να είμαι ενεργός (σε κανένα εγχείρημα). Παρόλα αυτά, στο διάστημα αυτό προσπάθησα καταρχάς να κάνω ένα "ξεκαθάρισμα" από σπαμ και βανδαλισμό (πληροφορίες και admin stats μπορείτε να δείτε εδώ ) αλλά παράλληλα να βελτιώσω όσο μπορώ την ποιότητα του περιεχομένου, κάτι που ελπίζω να κατάφερα σε κάποιον βαθμό. Πλέον είμαι και πάλι ενεργός στα εγχειρήματα, και θα ήθελα να συνεχίσω την δουλειά που είχα αφήσει στην μέση, καθώς και να συνεχίσω να συμβάλλω στην προστασία του εγχειρήματος από κακόβουλες επεξεργασίες ή σπαμ, βοηθώντας και τον νέο, ενεργό διαχειρηστή. --Kostas20142 (συζήτηση) 02:28, 30 Νοεμβρίου 2019 (UTC)[απάντηση]

Αίτημα ρομπότ[επεξεργασία]

Καλησπέρα σας,

Θα ήθελα να ζητήσω με το παρόν θέμα δικαιώματα ρομπότ για τον λογαριασμό μου, Kostas20142-Bot. Task του θα είναι η επιδιόρθωση νεκρών συνδέσμων σε σελίδες θεμάτων που υπάρχουν, λόγω ανομοιογένειας, καθώς και η επίλυση τέτοιων ανομοιογενειών. Το ρομπότ έτρεξε δοκιμαστηκά σήμερα, και για περισσότερες πληροφορίες σχετικά με τις επεξεργασίες του μπορείτε να ανατρέξετε εδώ. Περισσότερα tasks μπορούν να προστεθούν με νέο αίτημα. Στην παρούσα φάση και εφόσον δεν υπάρξει νέο αίτημα, θα λειτουργεί υπό επίβλεψη, και οι επιθυμητές αλλαγές θα καταχωρούνται χειροκίνητα. Για την λειτουργία του χρησιμοποιείται το Pywikibot. --Kostas20142 (συζήτηση) 18:51, 30 Νοεμβρίου 2019 (UTC)[απάντηση]

Διαγραφή ανεπιβεβαίωτων αποφθεγμάτων προσώπου χωρίς ταυτοποίηση[επεξεργασία]

Με αφορμή ένα "απόφθεγμα" στη Θάλασσα ενός άγνωστου "Μάμτσιτς Μ.", ανακάλυψα ότι τα ΒΦ έχουν πλήθος από αποφάνσεις του [1]. Έψαξα στο net (με ελληνικά, αλλά και με λατινικά και με κυριλικά γράμματα) να βρω κάτι γι' αυτόν, αλλά δεν βρήκα τίποτα, εκτός από διάφορα ανακυκλούμενα αποφθέγματά του (στα ελληνικά) σε μπλογκ, φέισμπουκ κλπ. Πουθενά καμιά πηγή για αυτά, ούτε για το πρόσωπο. Θεωρώ, λοιπόν, ότι θα πρέπει να διαγραφούν, αφού δεν επιβεβαιώνεται το παραμικρό για οτιδήποτε έχει πει ή γράψει -ούτε αν όντως τα έχει πει ή γράψει, καθώς ούτε ποιός είναι. Το επίθετο, πάντως, είναι εσθονικής προέλευσης από όσο είδα. ——Chalk19 (συζήτηση) 06:29, 22 Ιανουαρίου 2020 (UTC)[απάντηση]

Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globally[επεξεργασία]

Please help translate to your language

Hello everyone,

I apologize for posting in English. I would like to inform everyone that I created a new global request for comment (GRFC) at Meta Wiki, which may affect your project: m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

In this GRFC, I propose that two-project shortcuts for project names will become a default alias for the project namespace. For instance, on all Wikipedias, WP will be an alias to the Wikipedia: namespace (and similar for other projects). Full list is available in the GRFC.

This is already the case for Wikivoyages, and many individual projects asked for this alias to be implemented. I believe this makes it easier to access the materials in the project namespace, as well as creating shortcuts like WP:NPOV, as well as helps new projects to use this feature, without having to figure out how to request site configuration changes first.

As far as I can see, Βικιφθέγματα currently does not have such an alias set. This means that such an alias will be set for you, if the GRFC is accepted by the global community.

I would like to ask all community members to participate in the request for comment at Meta-Wiki, see m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions about this proposal.

Best regards,

Universal Code of Conduct – 2021 consultations[επεξεργασία]

Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2[επεξεργασία]

Please help translate to your language

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a universal baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire Wikimedia movement and all its projects. The project is currently in Phase 2, outlining clear enforcement pathways. You can read more about the whole project on its project page.

Drafting Committee: Call for applications[επεξεργασία]

The Wikimedia Foundation is recruiting volunteers to join a committee to draft how to make the code enforceable. Volunteers on the committee will commit between 2 and 6 hours per week from late April through July and again in October and November. It is important that the committee be diverse and inclusive, and have a range of experiences, including both experienced users and newcomers, and those who have received or responded to, as well as those who have been falsely accused of harassment.

To apply and learn more about the process, see Universal Code of Conduct/Drafting committee.

2021 community consultations: Notice and call for volunteers / translators[επεξεργασία]

From 5 April – 5 May 2021 there will be conversations on many Wikimedia projects about how to enforce the UCoC. We are looking for volunteers to translate key material, as well as to help host consultations on their own languages or projects using suggested key questions. If you are interested in volunteering for either of these roles, please contact us in whatever language you are most comfortable.

To learn more about this work and other conversations taking place, see Universal Code of Conduct/2021 consultations.

Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election has come to an end[επεξεργασία]

Thank you for participating in the 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election! Voting closed August 31 at 23:59. The official data, including the four most voted candidates, will be announced as soon as the Elections Committee completes their review of the ballots. The official announcement of the new trustees appointed will happen later, once the selected candidates have been confirmed by the Board.

6,946 community members from 216 wiki projects have voted. This makes 10.2% global participation, 1.1% higher than in the last Board elections. In 2017, 5167 people from 202 wiki projects cast their vote. A full analysis is planned to be published in a few days when the confirmed results are announced. In the meantime, you can check the data produced during the election.

Diversity was an important goal with these elections. Messages about the Board election were translated into 61 languages. This outreach worked well. There were 70 communities with eligible voters voting in this election for the first time. With your help, next year’s Board of Trustees election will be even better.

Upcoming Call for Feedback about the Board of Trustees elections[επεξεργασία]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

The Board of Trustees is preparing a call for feedback about the upcoming Board Elections, from January 7 - February 10, 2022.

While details will be finalized the week before the call, we have confirmed at least two questions that will be asked during this call for feedback:

  • What is the best way to ensure fair representation of emerging communities among the Board?
  • What involvement should candidates have during the election?

While additional questions may be added, the Movement Strategy and Governance team wants to provide time for community members and affiliates to consider and prepare ideas on the confirmed questions before the call opens. We apologize for not having a complete list of questions at this time. The list of questions should only grow by one or two questions. The intention is to not overwhelm the community with requests, but provide notice and welcome feedback on these important questions.

Do you want to help organize local conversation during this Call?

Contact the Movement Strategy and Governance team on Meta, on Telegram, or via email at msg(_AT_)wikimedia.org.

Reach out if you have any questions or concerns. The Movement Strategy and Governance team will be minimally staffed until January 3. Please excuse any delayed response during this time. We also recognize some community members and affiliates are offline during the December holidays. We apologize if our message has reached you while you are on holiday.

Best,

Call for Feedback about the Board of Trustees elections is now open[επεξεργασία]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

The Call for Feedback: Board of Trustees elections is now open and will close on 7 February 2022.

With this Call for Feedback, the Movement Strategy and Governance team is taking a different approach. This approach incorporates community feedback from 2021. Instead of leading with proposals, the Call is framed around key questions from the Board of Trustees. The key questions came from the feedback about the 2021 Board of Trustees election. The intention is to inspire collective conversation and collaborative proposal development about these key questions.

Join the conversation.

Best,

Movement Strategy and Governance

Remember to Participate in the UCoC Conversations and Ratification Vote![επεξεργασία]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hello everyone,

A vote in SecurePoll from 7 to 21 March 2022 is scheduled as part of the ratification process for the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement guidelines. Eligible voters are invited to answer a poll question and share comments. Read voter information and eligibility details. During the poll, voters will be asked if they support the enforcement of the Universal Code of Conduct based on the proposed guidelines.

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire movement. The revised enforcement guidelines were published 24 January 2022 as a proposed way to apply the policy across the movement. A Wikimedia Foundation Board statement calls for a ratification process where eligible voters will have an opportunity to support or oppose the adoption of the UCoC Enforcement guidelines in a vote. Wikimedians are invited to translate and share important information. For more information about the UCoC, please see the project page and frequently asked questions on Meta-wiki.

There are events scheduled to learn more and discuss:

  • A community panel recorded on 18 February 2022 shares perspectives from small- and medium-sized community participants.
  • The Movement Strategy and Governance (MSG) team is hosting Conversation Hours on 4 March 2022 at 15:00 UTC. Please sign-up to interact with the project team and the drafting committee about the updated enforcement guidelines and the ratification process. See the Conversation Hour summaries for notes from 4 February 2022 and 25 February 2022.

Invitation to Hubs event: Global Conversation on 2022-03-12 at 13:00 UTC[επεξεργασία]

Hello!

The Movement Strategy and Governance team of the Wikimedia Foundation would like to invite you to the next event about "Regional and Thematic Hubs". The Wikimedia Movement is in the process of understanding what Regional and Thematic Hubs should be. Our workshop in November was a good start (read the report), but we're not finished yet.

Over the last weeks we conducted about 16 interviews with groups working on establishing a Hub in their context (see Hubs Dialogue). These interviews informed a report that will serve as a foundation for discussion on March 12. The report is planned to be published on March 9.

The event will take place on March 12, 13:00 to 16:00 UTC on Zoom. Interpretation will be provided in French, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, and Portuguese. Registration is open, and will close on March 10. Anyone interested in the topic is invited to join us. More information on the event on Meta-wiki.

Best regards,

Revisions to the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement Guidelines[επεξεργασία]

Hello all,

We'd like to provide an update on the work on the Enforcement Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct. After the conclusion of the community vote on the guidelines in March, the Community Affairs committee (CAC) of the Board asked that several areas of the guidelines be reviewed for improvements before the Board does its final review. These areas were identified based on community discussions and comments provided during the vote. The CAC also requested review of the controversial Note in 3.1 of the UCoC itself.

Once more, a big thank you to all who voted, especially to all who left constructive feedback and comments! The project team is working with the Board to establish a timeline for this work, and will communicate this next month.

Members of the two prior UCoC Drafting Committees have generously offered their time to help shape improvements to the Guidelines. You can read more about them and their work here, as well as read summaries of their weekly meetings in 2022.

Wikimedians have provided many valuable comments together with the vote and in other conversations. Given the size and diversity of the Wikimedia community, there are even more voices out there who can give ideas on how to improve the enforcement guidelines and add even more valuable ideas to the process. To help the Revisions committee identify improvements, input on several questions for the committee’s review is requested. Visit the Meta-wiki pages (Enforcement Guidelines revision discussions, Policy text revision discussions) to get your ideas to the Committee - it is very important that viewpoints are heard from different communities before the Committee begins drafting revision proposals.

On behalf of the UCoC project team
