2030 आंदोलन रणनीति अनुशंसाएं[सम्पादन]

हिंदी समुदाय को नमस्कार! मेटा-विकी पर 2030 आंदोलन रणनीति की अनुशंसाएं प्रकाशित हो चुकी हैं। पिछले दो वर्षों में, हमारे आंदोलन ने हमारे साझा भविष्य को बदलने के लिए इन सिफारिशों का उत्पादन करने के लिए अथक प्रयास किया है। आप में से कई ने रणनीति वार्तालापों में भाग लिया, रणनीति सैलून की मेजबानी की, क्षेत्रीय कार्यक्रमों में भाग लिया, और विकिमानिया में हमारे साथ जुड़े। ये योगदान अमूल्य थे, और आने वाले वर्षों के लिए हमारे आंदोलन को मजबूत बनाने में मदद करेंगे। 10 सिफारिशों का तैयार सेट हमारे कई मूल मूल्यों पर ज़ोर देता है, जैसे कि इक्विटी, नवाचार, सुरक्षा और समन्वय, अगले दशक में हमारे आंदोलन को मार्गदर्शन देगा। ये सिफारिशें पिछले संस्करण को स्पष्ट और परिष्कृत करती हैं, जो इस साल जनवरी में प्रकाशित हुई थी। यह एक उच्च रणनीतिक स्तर पर हैं ताकि विचार विभिन्न वैश्विक और स्थानीय पतिस्थिति के अनुकूल होने के लिए पर्याप्त लचीले हों और हमें भविष्य की चुनौतियों का सामना करने में हमे सहायता दें। सिफारिशों के साथ, हमने 10 अंतर्निहित सिद्धांतों, सारांश और बेहतर संदर्भ के लिए प्रमुख शब्दों की एक शब्दावली को रेखांकित किया है। हम आपको अपने समय में और अपनी गति से या तो ऑनलाइन या पीडीएफ में सिफारिशों को पढ़ने के लिए प्रोत्साहित करते हैं। यदि आप टिप्पणी करना चाहते हैं, तो अनुशंसाएं के वार्ता पृष्ठों पर किया जा सकता है। हालांकि, कृपया ध्यान दें कि ये सिफारिशों के अंतिम संस्करण हैं। आगे कोई संपादन नहीं किया जाएगा। सिफारिशों का यह अंतिम संस्करण इस बात की आकांक्षा का प्रतीक है कि विकिमीडिया आंदोलन को उस दिशा को आगे बढ़ाने के लिए कैसे बदलते रहना चाहिए और बदलती दुनिया में विकिमीडिया दृष्टि से मिलना चाहिए। अगले चरणों के संदर्भ में, हमारा ध्यान अब कार्यान्वयन की ओर जाता है। विकिमीडिया समिट के रद्द होने के प्रकाश में, विकिमीडिया फाउंडेशन आने वाले महीनों में ऑनलाइन प्रयासों के माध्यम से आगे बढ़ने के लिए कदमों का निर्धारण कर रहा है। हम अगले कुछ दिनों में लाइव ऑफिस घंटे की मेजबानी भी करेंगे, जहां आप रणनीति बनाने और सवाल पूछने के लिए हमसे जुड़ सकते हैं! एक बार फिर से हमारे आंदोलन को आगे बढ़ाने में मदद करने के लिए हिंदी धन्यवाद। RSharma (WMF)

Community Tech Launches Wikisource Improvement Initiative[सम्पादन]

Apologies for the broken links in the previous message. This message is in English, but we encourage translation into other languages. Thank you!

Hello everyone,

We hope you are all healthy and safe in these difficult times.

The Community Tech team has just launched a new initiative to improve Wikisource. We will be addressing five separate wishes, which came out of the 2020 Community Wishlist Survey, and we want you to be a part of the process! The projects include the following:

For the first project, the team will focus on the #1 wish: improve ebook exports. We have created a project page, which includes an analysis of the ebook export process. We now invite everyone to visit the page and share their feedback on the project talk page. Please let us know what you think of our analysis; we want to hear from all of you! Furthermore, we hope that you will participate in the other Wikisource improvement projects, which we’ll address in the future. Thank you in advance and we look forward to reading your feedback on the ebook export improvement talk page!

Hindi texts added to mul:[सम्पादन]

Namaste. First off, sorry that I don't know any Hindi. I see that pages like mul:हिंदी भाषा की उत्पत्ति/अपभ्रंश-काल have been added on that wiki instead of here. Can someone here please import them to this wiki and then ping me when it's done so I can delete them from mul:? Thanks/धन्यवाद. Koavf (वार्ता) ०८:४३, २० जून २०२० (UTC)

Namaste @Koavf:. We (mostly done by John Herald Soby) have already imported all the concerned and appropriate files here. We usually don't allow without scan files like you mentioned above on hi:, so feel free to delete all the files you come across mul:.

Feedback requested: Ebook Export Improvement Project[सम्पादन]

Note: This message is in English, but we encourage translation into other languages. Thank you!

Hello, everyone!

I am pleased to announce that the Community Tech team at WMF has posted our August update on the Wikisource Ebook Export Improvement project! This project came out of our 2020 Community Wishlist Survey, and it was the #1 wish voted on by survey participants.

So, what does this mean? In short, we want your feedback! Now that we have posted the August update, we want to know what you think. The update includes findings from our community consultation, results from two separate analyses conducted by the team (on improving WSExport reliability & font rendering support), and proposed next steps. It is our hope that people can read our analysis, share their feedback, and engage in a conversation with us on the talk page. Your feedback will be invaluable, and it will help determine the next steps of the project.

Thank you to everyone who has participated in the consultation so far! It's been a joy to explore how we can improve the ebook export experience. Now, we look forward to reading a new round of feedback on the project talk page!

Wikisource Pagelist Widget: Ready to be enabled[सम्पादन]

Note: This message is in English, but we encourage translation into other languages. Thank you!

Hello everyone,

We are excited to announce that the Wikisource Pagelist widget is now available to be enabled on all Wikisources. Any interface admin on your wiki can enable it by using the instructions on the following page:

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Help:Extension:ProofreadPage/Pagelist_widget

In case, your wiki doesn’t have an interface admin, reach out to us on the ‘Help with enabling the widget on your wiki’ section of the project talk page and we will connect you with a global interface admin:

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Wikisource_Pagelist_Widget#Help_with_enabling_the_widget_on_your_wiki

You will need to hold a local discussion around what would be the labels for different page types in your language for the visual mode. (For example, ToC = ਤਤਕਰਾ in Punjabi, title = শিরোনাম in Bengali)

Feel free to also give us any feedback on the project talk page on Meta-Wiki as well.

Regards

Wikisource Pagelist Widget: Wikisource Meetup (29th September 2020)[सम्पादन]

Hello everyone,

We hope you are doing well!

We reached out to you a couple of weeks ago to share that Wikisource Pagelist Widget is now ready to be enabled to Wikisource. Since then, many language Wikisources have enabled the widget but many are yet to do so.

So, we have decided to organize a Wikisource Meetup to give a live demonstration on how to use the widget in both wikitext and visual modes. There will be some time for the participants to share their feedback and experience with the widget. We will also provide support in case some Wikisource communities are seeking help in enabling the widget.

The meetup will take place on 29 September 2020 at 9:30 AM UTC or 3 PM IST. Google Meet link for the meeting is: http://meet.google.com/khu-dfph-qsd

Looking forward to seeing the global Wikisource community connect amid these difficult times when physical meetings have not been taking place.

P.S. If you are planning to attend this meetup and are comfortable in sharing your email address then send us your confirmation in the form of a small email to sgill@wikimedia.org, this will help us in getting a sense of the number of people that are planning to show-up. We are aware that this time-zone is not convenient for everyone and more meetups can be organized in the future.

Regards

Sohom, Sam and Satdeep

Collaboration with Google around Children's literature[सम्पादन]

Hello everyone,

Apologies for writing in English. Please feel free to translate this into Hindi.

Wikimedia Foundation is planning a collaboration with Google Read Along for a project around illustrated children’s literature. While the entire project is being scoped out, in the first phase Google Read Along will take works from Wikisource and integrate on their platform. This will allow younger audiences to access works from Wikisource in a mobile-friendly platform and also learn how to read the language, which, as the name suggests, the Google Read Along platform is basically designed to do.

We have shared the Portal:Children's literature from English Wikisource with Google so far. There are certain books which match the expectations and requirements of Google, such as the poems in The Real Mother Goose as it has good illustrations and short poems.

Other than English, Google Read Along supports six Indian languages (Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi and Urdu). But what’s making it difficult to find relevant works in these languages is that Portals similar to Children’s Literature or Children’s Fairy Tales don’t exist in these languages.

So, it would be really nice if Hindi Wikisource can start identifying Children’s literature in a similar fashion. Alternatively, you can share some works that you might be aware of and you think would meet the requirements of this project, here itself.

You can read more about Google Read Along here: https://readalong.google/

Feel free to ask any questions that you might have. Thank you so much!

[Small wiki toolkits] Upcoming bots workshops: Understanding community needs[सम्पादन]

Greetings, as you may be aware that as part of Small wiki toolkits - South Asia, we conduct a workshop every month on technical topics to help small wikis. In February, we are planning on organizing a workshop on the topic of bots. Bots are automated tools that carry out repetitive, tedious and mundane tasks. To help us structure the workshop, we would like understand the needs of the community in this regard. Please let us know any of

  • a) repetitive/mundane tasks that you generally do, especially for maintenance
  • b) tasks you think can be automated on your wiki.

Please let us your inputs on workshops talk page, before 7 February 2021. You can also let me know your inputs by emailing me or pinging me here in this section. Please note that you do not need to have any programming knowledge for this workshop or to give input. Regards, KCVelaga १३:४५, २८ जनवरी २०२१ (UTC)

Call for feedback: WMF Community Board seats & Office hours tomorrow[सम्पादन]

(sorry for posting in English)

Dear Wikimedians,

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is organizing a call for feedback about community selection processes between February 1 and March 14. Below you will find the problem statement and various ideas from the Board to address it. We are offering multiple channels for questions and feedback. With the help of a team of community facilitators, we are organizing multiple conversations with multiple groups in multiple languages.

During this call for feedback we publish weekly reports and we draft the final report that will be delivered to the Board. With the help of this report, the Board will approve the next steps to organize the selection of six community seats in the upcoming months. Three of these seats are due for renewal and three are new, recently approved.

Participate in this call for feedback and help us form a more diverse and better performing Board of Trustees!

Problems: While the Wikimedia Foundation and the movement have grown about five times in the past ten years, the Board’s structure and processes have remained basically the same. As the Board is designed today, we have a problem of capacity, performance, and lack of representation of the movement’s diversity. This problem was identified in the Board’s 2019 governance review, along with recommendations for how to address it.

To solve the problem of capacity, we have agreed to increase the Board size to a maximum of 16 trustees (it was 10). Regarding performance and diversity, we have approved criteria to evaluate new Board candidates. What is missing is a process to promote community candidates that represent the diversity of our movement and have the skills and experience to perform well on the Board of a complex global organization.

Our current processes to select individual volunteer and affiliate seats have some limitations. Direct elections tend to favor candidates from the leading language communities, regardless of how relevant their skills and experience might be in serving as a Board member, or contributing to the ability of the Board to perform its specific responsibilities. It is also a fact that the current processes have favored volunteers from North America and Western Europe. Meanwhile, our movement has grown larger and more complex, our technical and strategic needs have increased, and we have new and more difficult policy challenges around the globe. As well, our Movement Strategy recommendations urge us to increase our diversity and promote perspectives from other regions and other social backgrounds.

In the upcoming months, we need to renew three community seats and appoint three more community members in the new seats. What process can we all design to promote and choose candidates that represent our movement and are prepared with the experience, skills, and insight to perform as trustees?

Ideas: The Board has discussed several ideas to overcome the problems mentioned above. Some of these ideas could be taken and combined, and some discarded. Other ideas coming from the call for feedback could be considered as well. The ideas are:

  • Ranked voting system. Complete the move to a single transferable vote system, already used to appoint affiliate-selected seats, which is designed to best capture voters’ preferences.
  • Quotas. Explore the possibility of introducing quotas to ensure certain types of diversity in the Board (details about these quotas to be discussed in this call for feedback).
  • Call for types of skills and experiences. When the Board makes a new call for candidates, they would specify types of skills and experiences especially sought.
  • Vetting of candidates. Potential candidates would be assessed using the Trustee Evaluation Form and would be confirmed or not as eligible candidates.
  • Board-delegated selection committee. The community would nominate candidates that this committee would assess and rank using the Trustee Evaluation Form. This committee would have community elected members and Board appointed members.
  • Community-elected selection committee. The community would directly elect the committee members. The committee would assess and rank candidates using the Trustee Evaluation Form.
  • Election of confirmed candidates. The community would vote for community nominated candidates that have been assessed and ranked using the Trustee Evaluation Form. The Board would appoint the most voted candidates.
  • Direct appointment of confirmed candidates. After the selection committee produces a ranked list of community nominated candidates, the Board would appoint the top-ranked candidates directly.

Call for feedback: The call for feedback runs from February 1 until the end of March 14. We are looking for a broad representation of opinions. We are interested in the reasoning and the feelings behind your opinions. In a conversation like this one, details are important. We want to support good conversations where everyone can share and learn from others. We want to hear from those who understand Wikimedia governance well and are already active in movement conversations. We also want to hear from people who do not usually contribute to discussions. Especially those who are active in their own roles, topics, languages or regions, but usually not in, say, a call for feedback on Meta.

You can participate by joining the Telegram chat group, and giving feedback on any of the talk pages on Meta-Wiki. We are welcoming the organisation of conversations in any language and in any channel. If you want us to organize a conversation or a meeting for your wiki project or your affiliate, please write to me. I will also reach out to communities and affiliates to soon have focused group discussions.

An office hour is also happening tomorrow at 12 pm (UTC) to discuss this topic. Access link will be available 15 minutes before the scheduled time (please watch the office hour page for the link, and I will also share on mailing lists). In case you are not able to make it, please don't worry, there will be more discussions and meetings in the next few weeks.

Regards, KCVelaga (WMF) १६:३०, १ फ़रवरी २०२१ (UTC)

Research Needs Assessment for Indian Language Wikimedia (ILW) Projects[सम्पादन]

Dear All,

The Access to Knowledge (A2K) team at CIS has been engaged with work on research on Indian language Wikimedia projects as part of the APG since 2019. This year, following up on our learnings from work so far, we are undertaking a needs assessment exercise to understand a) the awareness about research within Indian language Wikimedia communities, and identify existing projects if any, and b) to gather community inputs on knowledge gaps and priority areas of focus, and the role of research in addressing the same.

We would therefore request interested community members to respond to the needs assessment questionnaire here:

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

कृपया अपनी भाषा में अनुवाद करने में सहायता करें

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, विकिस्रोत 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,
--Martin Urbanec (talk) १४:१२, १८ फ़रवरी २०२१ (UTC)

विकिमीडिया फाउंडेशन सामुदायिक बोर्ड की सीटें: प्रतिक्रिया बैठक के लिए कॉल[सम्पादन]

Hindi version

विकिमीडिया फाउंडेशन बोर्ड ऑफ़ ट्रस्टीज 1 फरवरी से 14 मार्च के बीच सामुदायिक चयन प्रक्रियाओं के बारे में प्रतिक्रिया लेने के लिए एक कॉल का आयोजन कर रहा है। चूँकि विकिमीडिया फाउंडेशन और आंदोलन पिछले दस वर्षों में लगभग पाँच गुना बढ़ चुका हैं जबकि बोर्ड की संरचना और प्रक्रिया में कोई बदलाव नहीं हुआ है। यह मूल रूप से वैसे की वैसे ही हैं। जिस स्थिति में आज बोर्ड तैयार है उसमें हमारे पास क्षमता, प्रदर्शन और आंदोलन की विविधता के प्रतिनिधित्व की कमी की समस्या है। प्रत्यक्ष चुनाव प्रमुख भाषा समुदायों के उम्मीदवारों के पक्ष में जाता है। भले ही बोर्ड के सदस्य के रूप में उनकी क्षमता और अनुभव कितना भी प्रासंगिक क्यों ना हो या अपनी विशिष्ट जिम्मेदारियों को निभाने के लिए बोर्ड की क्षमता में योगदान करता हो या ना। यह भी एक तथ्य है कि वर्तमान प्रक्रियाओं में उत्तरी अमेरिका और पश्चिमी यूरोप के स्वयंसेवकों की तरफ पक्ष किया जाता है। वास्तव में, पंद्रह वर्षों के इतिहास में केवल एक ही सदस्य था जिसने दक्षिण एशिया से बोर्ड में कार्य किया था।

आगामी महीनों में, हमें तीन सामुदायिक सीटों को नवीनीकृत करने और नई सीटों में तीन और समुदाय सदस्यों को नियुक्त करने की आवश्यकता है। फीडबैक की इन कॉल के माध्यम से हम यह देखना चाहते है कि हम उन सभी उम्मीदवारों को बढ़ावा देने और चुनने के लिए कौन-कौन सी प्रक्रियाओं को डिजाइन कर सकते हैं जो हमारे आंदोलन का प्रतिनिधित्व करते हैं। इस संबंध में, प्रस्तावित विचारों पर चर्चा करने और हमारे विचारों को साझा करने, प्रतिक्रिया देने और प्रक्रिया में योगदान देने के लिए सामुदायिक चर्चा करना अच्छा होगा। प्रस्तावित चर्चा पर चर्चा करने के लिए, आपको 12 मार्च के दिन रात 8 बजे से 10 बजे तक आयोजित होने वाली सामुदायिक बैठक में आमंत्रित किया जाता है। इसमें शामिल होने के लिए बैठक की कड़ी https://meet.google.com/umc-attq-kdt है। आप यहाँ क्लिक करके इस मीटिंग को अपने गूगल कैलेंडर में जोड़ सकते हैं। यदि आपके कोई प्रश्न हैं, तो कृपया मुझे पिंग करें। धन्यवाद। --१०:००, ८ मार्च २०२१ (UTC)

As a result of the first three weeks of the call for feedback on WMF Community Board seats, three topics turned out to be the focus of the discussion. Additionally, a new idea has been introduced by a community member recently: Candidates resources. We would like to pursue these focus topics and the new idea appropriately, discussing them in depth and collecting new ideas and fresh approaches by running four panels in the next week. Every panel includes four members from the movement covering many regions, backgrounds and experiences, along with a trustee of the Board. Every panel will last 45 minutes, followed by a 45-minute open mic discussion, where everyone’s free to ask questions or to contribute to the further development of the panel's topics.

To counter spamming, the meeting link will be updated on the Meta-Wiki pages and also on the Telegram announcements channel, 15 minutes before the official start.

Let me know if you have any questions, KCVelaga (WMF), ०८:३६, १० मार्च २०२१ (UTC)

[Small wiki toolkits] Workshop on "Debugging/fixing template errors" - 27 March[सम्पादन]

As part of the Small wiki toolkits (South Asia) initiative, we are happy to announce the third workshop of this year. The workshop will be on "Debugging/fixing template errors", and we will learn how to address the common template errors on wikis (related but not limited to importing templates, translating them, Lua, etc.).

Note: We are providing modest internet stipends to attend the workshops, for those who need and wouldn't otherwise be able to attend. More information on this can be found on the registration page.
