Be a Wikimedia fundraising "User Experience" volunteer![ફેરફાર કરો]
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. All countries needed (excepting USA)!!

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

Convert complex templates to Lua to make them faster and more powerful[ફેરફાર કરો]
(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.
Proposal of a pronunciation recording tool[ફેરફાર કરો]
Hello, Rahul21, a developer, offers to develop a pronunciation recording tool for Wiktionary, helped by Michael Dale as part of GSoC. The tool would allow to record and add audio pronunciations to Wiktionary entries while browsing them (see background discussion on Wiktionary-l). Please read and comment the proposal! Regards, Nemo ૨૨:૩૮, ૯ એપ્રિલ ૨૦૧૩ (UTC)

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.
[en] Change to wiki account system and account renaming[ફેરફાર કરો]
Some accounts will soon be renamed due to a technical change that the developer team at Wikimedia are making. More details on Meta.
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.
Trademark discussion[ફેરફાર કરો]
Hi, apologies for posting this in English, but I wanted to alert your community to a discussion on Meta about potential changes to the Wikimedia Trademark Policy. Please translate this statement if you can. We hope that you will all participate in the discussion; we also welcome translations of the legal team’s statement into as many languages as possible and encourage you to voice your thoughts there. Please see the Trademark practices discussion (on Meta-Wiki) for more information. Thank you! --Mdennis (WMF) (talk)
Universal Language Selector to replace Narayam and WebFonts extensions[ફેરફાર કરો]
On June 11, 2013, the Universal Language Selector (ULS) will replace the features of Mediawiki extensions Narayam and WebFonts. The ULS provides a flexible way of configuring and delivering language settings like interface language, fonts, and input methods (keyboard mappings).
Pywikipedia is migrating to git[ફેરફાર કરો]
Hello, Sorry for English but It's very important for bot operators so I hope someone translates this. Pywikipedia is migrating to Git so after July 26, SVN checkouts won't be updated If you're using Pywikipedia you have to switch to git, otherwise you will use out-dated framework and your bot might not work properly. There is a manual for doing that and a blog post explaining about this change in non-technical language. If you have question feel free to ask in mw:Manual talk:Pywikipediabot/Gerrit, mailing list, or in the IRC channel. Best Amir (via Global message delivery). ૧૩:૧૫, ૨૩ જુલાઇ ૨૦૧૩ (UTC)
HTTPS for users with an account[ફેરફાર કરો]
Greetings. Starting on August 21 (tomorrow), all users with an account will be using HTTPS to access Wikimedia sites. HTTPS brings better security and improves your privacy. More information is available at m:HTTPS.
If HTTPS causes problems for you, tell us on bugzilla, on IRC (in the
#wikimedia-operations channel) or on meta. If you can't use the other methods, you can also send an e-mail to
(This message is in English, please translate as needed)
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:
- Echo on translatewiki for user interface - you must have an account on translatewiki to translate
- Thanks on translatewiki for user interface - you must have an account on translatewiki to translate
- Notifications help on mediawiki.org. This page can be hosted after translation on mediawiki.org or we can localize it to this Wikipedia. You do not have to have an account to translate on mediawiki, but single-user login will create it for you there if you follow the link.
Please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions or comments about this new tool. For more information, visit this project hub and this help page. Keegan (WMF) (talk) ૧૮:૩૭, ૪ ઓક્ટોબર ૨૦૧૩ (UTC)

Introducting Beta Features[ફેરફાર કરો]
(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:
- Media Viewer — view images in large size or full screen
- VisualEditor Formulæ (for wikis with VisualEditor) — edit algebra or equations on your pages
- Typography Refresh — make text more readable (coming Thursday)
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.

Pronunciation Recording[ફેરફાર કરો]
Dear Wiktionary community!
- About me
- My name is Rainer Rillke, and I have been volunteering at Wikimedia Commons for 3 years now, gathering experience around media files. I've been always interested in how things work and how one could improve them.
- The idea
- One idea that appeared last Summer was allowing the recording of small chunks of speech, uploading that to Wikimedia Commons in the background and including this into a Wiktionary entry without having the hassle doing everything by hand or installing additional software. That idea led to the foundation of MediaWiki extension PronunciationRecording during the Google Summer of Code. However, this was not completed; instead development is stale for over 5 months now.
- My proposal
- To make this going to work, so Wiktionary has an immediate benefit of this feature, I would like to provide the work done so far as a gadget and add some more work in regard to usability. You can see my plan at m:Grants:IEG/Finish Pronunciation Recording. And more importantly, you can give me a hand, if you are interested by writing your comments.

પ્રકલ્પનાં નવા નામકરણ માટે પ્રસ્તાવ[ફેરફાર કરો]
શબ્દોશ માટે ગુજરાતી ભાષામાં કોશ અને અંગ્રેજીમાં ડિક્શનરી શબ્દ છે. વિક્શનરી વિકિ અને ડિક્શનરી મળીને બનેલો શબ્દ છે. ગુજરાતી ભાષાના શબ્દકોશની વાત હોય ત્યારે શબ્દકોશનું નામ અંગ્રેજીભાષા મિશ્રિત હોય તે અજુગતું લાગે છે અને એક ભાષાપ્રેમીને આ કદી સ્વીકાર ન હોઇ શકે.
વિક્શનરીના બદલે વિકિકોશ યોગ્ય શબ્દ છે. યોગ્ય નામ સાથે ભવિષ્યમાં આ શબ્દકોશ વિકસિત થશે તો ગુજરાતી ભાષા માટે ઘણો ઉપયોગી સાબિત થાય તેમ છે. જેથી પ્રકલ્પનું નામ બદલીને વિકિકોશ કરવા માટે આપ સૌ સમક્ષ નમ્ર પ્રસ્તાવ છે. આભાર સહ. આપનો વિશ્વાસુ--Bhatakati aatma (ચર્ચા) ૦૪:૧૫, ૨૩ ડિસેમ્બર ૨૦૧૫ (UTC)

Standard bot policy[ફેરફાર કરો]
To facilitate steward granting of bot access, I suggest implementing the standard bot policy on this wiki. In particular, this policy allows stewards to automatically flag known interlanguage (interwiki) linking bots (if this page says that is acceptable), which form the vast majority of such requests. The policy also enables global bots on this wiki (if this page says that is acceptable), which are trusted bots that will be given bot access on every wiki that allows global bots. At this moment the Wiktionaries are not supported by Wikidata yet, so interwiki bot activity will still be present in this project.
This policy makes bot access requesting much easier for local users, operators, and stewards. To implement it we only need to create a redirect to this page (or the community page where bot requests are handled) from Project:Bot policy, and add a line at the top noting that it is used here. Please read the text at m:Bot policy before commenting. If you object, please say so; I hope to implement in two weeks if there is no objection, since it is particularly written to streamline bot requests on wikis with little or no community interested in bot access requests. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me at my talk page at Meta-Wiki.
Thank you very much, --MarcoAurelio ૧૦:૫૦, ૨૯ જૂન ૨૦૧૬ (UTC)

User:DerekWinters, add this Gujarati dictionaries to your list on userpage. Except GujaratiLexicon, all are in public domain. Bhagwadgomandal (ભગવદ્ગોમંડળ) is in public domain but its digital version on web can be considered in copyright. Its copyright expired in 2016. It is biggest encyclopedic dictionary in Gujarati ever created. (>200000 words). We, at Gujarati Wikipedia, wanted it to be here but we postponed our plan until structured wiktionary starts.

Digital Library of India ની નકલ internet archives એ કરી છે પણ એમાં હજુ બધાં પુસ્તકો સમાવાયા નથી એટલે હું બીજી કડી આપી શક્યો નથી.  આ સર્ચમાં Digital Library of India ની internet archivesમાં સમાવાયેલી અન્ય ગુજરાતી ડિક્ષનરીઓ મળી શકાશે. Digital Library of Indiaના કારણે ઘણી બધી ડિક્ષનરી ઉપલબ્ધ હતી પણ હવે એ ઓફલાઈન છે એટલે internet archives ની નકલમાં જે ઉપલબ્ધ છે એનાથી ચલાવવું પડશે. Digital Library of Indiaમાં મોટે ભાગે કોપીરાઈટ મુક્ત સાહિત્ય હોય છે પણ આપણે અલગથી ખરાઈ કરીને વાપરવું.--Nizil Shah (ચર્ચા) ૦૫:૪૬, ૧૩ જૂન ૨૦૧૭ (UTC)

Heads-up about a technical change affecting this wiki[ફેરફાર કરો]
કેમ છો. Please help translate to your language. આભાર !
In July 2017, the Wikimedia Foundation announced the intention to replace Tidy with RemexHTML across the Wikimedia cluster by July 2018. In order to make this switch, a number of broken wikitext patterns were identified that required fixing on wikis, highlighted via the high priority categories in the Linter extension.
While still planning to finish turning off Tidy in July 2018, doing early switches of wikis from Tidy to Remex will let us identify any lingering issues that are not already caught by the linter categories and our QA testing. We are encouraging big wikis that have worked hard to switch sooner, for example.
Since your wiki has zero high-priority errors, we think that it is ready to switch from Tidy to Remex. To be clear, if we notice problems (or if the wiki requests it), we will revert the change, after identifying the source of the problem. If you notice any incorrect rendering, you can use
?action=parsermigration-edit to identify if the switch from Tidy actually caused it.
This is happening tomorrow, 5 December 2017, so there will still be plenty of time to fix any issues before the holidays start. If you have any comments, please remember to ping me personally to make sure I notice and address them.
PS: Apologies if you are seeing this message late, and on a page that is not the best location for it: I have looked for the appropriate target pages (for example, on Meta), but the bot delivering the post was rejected. Please, by all means, move the message where you see fit, but most importantly, fix the various distribution lists by adding the correct page there, to avoid that this happens again in the future. I appreciate your understanding, and am available for further information and explanations.
