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


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) 2014年1月16日 (四) 06:47 (UTC)[回覆]

設立過濾器 Abuse filter


(apologies for the English, if possible please transalte)

Greetings; This project has been receiving a lot of spam lately and I suggest that an abuse filter should be setup to prevent this.

Proposed optional changes to Terms of Use amendment

Hello all, in response to some community comments in the discussion on the amendment to the Terms of Use on undisclosed paid editing, we have prepared two optional changes. Please read about these optional changes on Meta wiki and share your comments. If you can (and this is a non english project), please translate this announcement. Thanks!

大家好, 在今年的Google Summer of Code項目中,我所申請的「為通用語言選擇器提供中文字體支持」項目成功入選,將在未來的三個月內完成這一工程,並爭取早日合併入主代碼庫。





本工程要解決的就是上述問題,主要完成兩件事: 1. 字體裁剪。針對每個頁面生成專用字體文件,比如某頁面只使用了107個漢字,就為它生成只含107個漢字的字體文件,大概只有10~20KB,下載速度極快。 2. 字體收集。如果頁面上包含了一個字形,連伺服器的字形庫里也沒有,就秉持Wiki的貢獻和分享精神,提供一個接口鼓勵用戶製作這個字形並上傳給伺服器。

Media Viewer


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) 2014年5月23日 (五) 21:29 (UTC)[回覆]

Using only UploadWizard for uploads

Wikimedia Commons logo

Hello! Sorry for writing in English. It was noted that on this wiki upload is not fully functional for users, who will experience a very difficult and/or illegal uploading. In fact, the licenses/copyright tags dropdown is empty, making it hard or impossible to comply with copyright requirements during upload itself.

Presumably, you don't have interest nor energies to have hundreds templates with the now required HTML, even less a local EDP. I propose to have

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.

All this will get done around 2014-07-03.

  1. If you disagree with the proposal, just remove your wiki from the list. Remember also to create MediaWiki:Licenses locally with any content (see a simple example), or uploads will be soon disabled anyway by MediaWiki itself (starting in version 1.24wmf11).
  2. To make the UploadWizard even better, please tell your experience and ideas on commons:Commons:Upload Wizard feedback.

Media Viewer is now live on this wiki


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) 2014年6月19日 (四) 21:54 (UTC)[回覆]

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


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.

You can read the announcement and the development plan for more information. Apologies for writing this message only in English. Thank you. Runa

Changes to the default site typography coming soon


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.

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decisions


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.

私以為是時候整理一下維基教科書的這些頁面了。這些頁面有的內容不適合教科書(另見:#系統架構,要是有 TW 標記就好了), 有的內容需要清理,並且條目與條目間所描述的事物常有極其多的相同點,但一些條目能涵蓋到而另一些卻不能。考慮到東西比較分散不方便放討論頁,我把這些編輯事宜就放在這裡吧。


  • Windows-DOS: 目前模板按核心大致區分的路線基本正確
  • 建議合併 DOS 核心(3.1)世代和 9x 世代的內容到同一教科書。
  • 建議將 NT 按 NT 4, NT 5, NT 6 世代進行條目合併。伺服器中的重複部分考慮直接配成 Windows Server 入門教程。
  • 未實現的暫時注釋掉,各種克隆連結到相應的版本本身,可考慮新開一個章節。
  • 內容/應用軟體待討論
  • UNIX:有點亂,不過還來得及,反正基本都是紅鏈
  • UNIX 這玩意的共通處實在太多(除了一個 OS X 可以把桌面環境另外講講),別的應用軟體重合度真的很高。考慮:
  • 桌面環境介紹直接交給桌面環境教科書入門部分
  • 包管理器開一個共用
  • 不同的地方分別拎出來再說,例如應用間集成或者是專屬應用(同樣適合 Windows)
  • BSD 命令行工具可以跟傳統的一起講,GNU 的就拎出來談拓展。這些命令行教程和所使用的 Shell 聯繫常常十分緊密,如何處理?寫入 Bash 教程,拿來當作命令行入門?
  • 用戶較少的部分商業 UNIX 合併到 UNIX 的一個子頁面,但不是 UNIX 頁面本身
  • TODO:各種 BSD 分支和 Linux 發行版的安排?合併到同一篇?
  • 推薦軟體:給個列表好了。

我希望這樣加大共用率的安排方式能有助於縮減總篇幅,同時避免條目內容的不同步性,也便於維護。希望大家多多討論和給出建議……--Arthur2e5 更改·工具 2014年9月28日 (日) 10:43 (UTC)[回覆]



正當日文維基教科書有些法律法規法例逐條解說頁面時,例如ja:消防法第13條,在此提議這邊開辦類似計劃。但有很多漢字文化圈撞名法律法規法例時,建議這邊應該一律用像是「道路交通標誌標線號誌設置規則/第13條」的子頁面命名,以便將來發現撞名時,能輕易集體修正成像是「消防法 (中華民國)/第13條」的消歧義名稱。否則像是「消防法第13條」的名稱就必須個別移動重新命名,太不方便。--Jusjih (留言) 2014年9月1日 (一) 20:28 (UTC)[回覆]

好,謝謝。就等維基數據支援維基教科書,才開辦法律法規法例逐條解說計劃。例如,立法院法律系統收錄的中華民國法律,依法條順序顯示的法條沿革,就適合法律法規法例逐條解說計劃,但因爲此編排是發展中的「作品」,所以不適合刊維基文庫。--Jusjih (留言) 2014年9月7日 (日) 00:06 (UTC)[回覆]
當然我還是很支持這樣做的,這樣等何時維基數據支援維基教科書後就可以開bot傳送資料了,而不是一點點從維基數據匯入資料。--Liuxinyu970226 (留言) 2014年9月16日 (二) 04:44 (UTC)[回覆]
已經強調國號的法律法規法例,例如s:Wikisource:專題/法律#漢字文化圈近似名稱法律法規列舉的中華民國刑法、引渡法 (中華民國)、中華人民共和國刑法、中華人民共和國引渡法等等,不應該有移動重新命名的可能,所以應能優先刊登逐條解說。反之,特殊教育法雖然除了臺灣中華民國以外,尚未發現其他漢字文化圈國家地區有撞名,但非漢字文化圈國家地區仍有撞名,例如英文Special Education Act,所以尚未在維基文庫強調國號的法律法規法例,應該先等何時維基數據支援維基教科書,才不會大規模移動重新命名而太不方便。--Jusjih (留言) 2014年9月30日 (二) 05:45 (UTC)[回覆]
將來開始此計劃時,中華民國法律頁面應否一律冠以「中華民國法律/」,像是「中華民國法律/中華民國刑法」、「中華民國法律/引渡法」?如此的優點是不會與他國同名法律撞名,但缺點是命名更冗長。若不冠以「中華民國法律/」,就原則等待維基數據支援維基教科書。--Jusjih (留言) 2014年10月6日 (一) 02:41 (UTC)[回覆]
講解一條法例應該已有足夠篇幅成書,故建議用分類集合,而非母頁。不過命名方式確有待商榷以便分辨及免於撞名。--J.Wong 2014年10月7日 (二) 02:53 (UTC)[回覆]
英文維基教科書同步詢問en:Annotated Republic of China Laws/Civil Code/Article 8就是「註解中華民國法律/民法/第8條」。但應該商榷將來要統一稱作「註解中華民國法律」還是「中華民國法律註解」,以力求其他國家地區地方法律註解命名一致。--Jusjih (留言) 2014年10月8日 (三) 06:16 (UTC)[回覆]
已經開闢中華民國法律註解‎。所有法律都是子頁面,所以不會與其他漢字文化圈國家地區有撞名。--Jusjih (留言) 2014年10月20日 (一) 04:14 (UTC)[回覆]

Meta RfCs on two new global groups

Hello all,

There are currently requests for comment open on meta to create two new global groups. The first is a group for members of the OTRS permissions queue, which would grant them autopatrolled rights on all wikis except those who opt-out. That proposal can be found at m:Requests for comment/Creation of a global OTRS-permissions user group. The second is a group for Wikimedia Commons admins and OTRS agents to view deleted file pages through the 'viewdeletedfile' right on all wikis except those who opt-out. The second proposal can be found at m:Requests for comment/Global file deletion review.

We would like to hear what you think on both proposals. Both are in English; if you wanted to translate them into your native language that would also be appreciated.

It is possible for individual projects to opt-out, so that users in those groups do not have any additional rights on those projects. To do this please start a local discussion, and if there is consensus you can request to opt-out of either or both at m:Stewards' noticeboard.

Thanks and regards, Ajraddatz (talk) 2014年10月26日 (日) 18:04 (UTC)[回覆]

Global AbuseFilter


AbuseFilter is a MediaWiki extension used to detect likely abusive behavior patterns, like pattern vandalism and spam. In 2013, Global AbuseFilters were enabled on a limited set of wikis including Meta-Wiki, MediaWiki.org, Wikispecies and (in early 2014) all the "small wikis". Recently, global abuse filters were enabled on "medium sized wikis" as well. These filters are currently managed by stewards on Meta-Wiki and have shown to be very effective in preventing mass spam attacks across Wikimedia projects. However, there is currently no policy on how the global AbuseFilters will be managed although there are proposals. There is an ongoing request for comment on policy governing the use of the global AbuseFilters. In the meantime, specific wikis can opt out of using the global AbuseFilter. These wikis can simply add a request to this list on Meta-Wiki. More details can be found on this page at Meta-Wiki. If you have any questions, feel free to ask on m:Talk:Global AbuseFilter.
