== POMOČ! ==

Dobrodošel, seveda. Če bo kaj konkretnega, kar sporoči, kje so težave. Spotoma, podpišeš se s klikom na gumb s svinčnikom. --[[Uporabnik:Janezdrilc|Janezdrilc]] ([[Uporabniški pogovor:Janezdrilc|pogovor]]) 16:38, 7. maj 2016 (UTC)
 
== Anketa o sistemskem času ==
 
Na Wikiviru je sistemski čas (to je čas, kakršen se samodejno beleži v zadnjih spremembah, v zgodovini strani ali pri podpisu v pogovoru) nastavljen na UTC, ki je za razliko od slovenskega lokalnega časa za dve uri pomaknjen nazaj. UTC trenutno uporabljajo vsi slovenski wikiprojekti razen Wikipedije, ki je to uredila že kar nekaj let nazaj. Ker se mi je zdelo dobro, da bi se ure med našimi projekti poenotile (včasih zna biti malenkost nadležno uporabljati nerealno uro), mi je en uporabnik svetoval, da bi bilo potrebno za spremembo vsaj na enem wikiprojektu (glede na to, da na ostalih manjših nimamo živih skupnosti) dobiti konsenz skupnosti. Tako na tem mestu odpiram anketo o tem vprašanju, in sicer, ali se uporabniki strinjate, da se sistemski čas, ki je trenutno v uporabi na tem projektu, nastavi na slovenski lokalni čas in se tako poenoti z Wikipedijo.

Poenotenje sistemskega časa je potekalo v Fabrikantu pod zadevo [[phab:T142701|T142701]] in je bilo zaključeno 19. avgusta. Vseh šest slovenskih projektov ima sedaj po osnovnih nastavitvah sistemski čas oziroma časovni pas nastavljen na Evropa/Ljubljana (UTC+2). Dejansko je poleg Wikipedije ta čas že od samega odprtja uporabljala tudi Wikiverza. Poenotenje pa pomeni tudi, da so znotraj posameznega projekta Zadnje spremembe, zgodovine strani, uporabnikovi prispevki, dnevniki, čarobne besede kot naprimer <code><nowiki>{{LOCALTIME}}</nowiki></code> in pa podpis s časom vsi nastavljeni na Evropa/Ljubljana.
 
Kljub vsemu se je pojavila druga težava, in sicer, da se v [[Posebno:Nastavitve#mw-prefsection-rendering|uporabnikovih nastavitvah]] v rubriki Časovni odmik, kjer je možno ročno spreminjanje časovnega pasu, ob kakršnem koli spreminjanju le-tega ne da nastavit nazaj na začetne nastavitve, ki bi samodejno prikazovale UTC+2, pač pa se pojavi UTC. To pomeni, da se lahko nekaterim uporabnikom, ki so si kdaj spreminjali časovne nastavitve, pa te naposled niso ročno nastavili na možnost ''Uporabi privzeti čas (Evropa/Ljubljana)'', še vedno pojavlja sistemski čas UTC. Ta pomankljivost se sedaj ločeno rešuje pod zadevo [[phab:T143713|T143713]]. V bistvu ne zadeva samo slovenske projekte, ampak pravzaprav vse, ki uporabljajo katerega od drugih časovnih pasov kot UTC, kar verjetno pomeni večino Wikipedij.
 
Obenem se zahvaljujem vsem, ki ste glasovali, saj brez podpore skupnosti stvar gotovo ne bi šla čez. K sreči sta za Wikiknjige in Wikislovar zadostovali le obvestili pod tamkajšnjima lipama. --[[Uporabnik:Janezdrilc|Janezdrilc]] ([[Uporabniški pogovor:Janezdrilc|pogovor]]) 00:40, 24. avgust 2016 (CEST)

On behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Elections Committee, I am pleased to announce that self-nominations are being accepted for the [[m:Special:MyLanguage/Wikimedia_Foundation_elections/2017/Board_of_Trustees/Call_for_candidates|2017 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees Elections]].
 
The [[m:Special:MyLanguage/Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees|Board of Trustees]] (Board) is the decision-making body that is ultimately responsible for the long-term sustainability of the Wikimedia Foundation, so we value wide input into its selection. More information about this role can be found [[m:Special:MyLanguage/Wikimedia Foundation elections/2017/Board of Trustees|on Meta-Wiki]]. Please read the [[m:Special:MyLanguage/Wikimedia Foundation elections/2017/Board of Trustees/Call for candidates|letter from the Board of Trustees calling for candidates]].
 
'''The [[m:Special:MyLanguage/Wikimedia Foundation elections/2017/Board of Trustees/Candidates|candidacy submission phase]] will last from April 7 (00:00 UTC) to April 20 (23:59 UTC).'''
 
'''We will also be accepting questions to ask the candidates from April 7 to April 20. [[m:Special:MyLanguage/Wikimedia Foundation elections/2017/Board of Trustees/Questions|You can submit your questions on Meta-Wiki]].'''
 
Once the questions submission period has ended on April 20, the Elections Committee will then collate the questions for the candidates to respond to beginning on April 21.
 
The goal of this process is to fill the '''three community-selected seats''' on the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. The election results will be used by the Board itself to select its new members.
 
The full schedule for the Board elections is as follows. All dates are '''inclusive''', that is, from the beginning of the first day (UTC) to the end of the last.
 
* April 7 (00:00 UTC) – April 20 (23:59 UTC) – '''Board nominations'''
* April 7 – April 20 – '''Board candidates questions submission period'''
* April 21 – April 30 – '''Board candidates answer questions'''
* May 1 – May 14 – '''Board voting period'''
* May 15–19 – '''Board vote checking'''
* May 20 – '''Board result announcement goal'''
 
In addition to the Board elections, we will also soon be holding elections for the following roles:
 
* '''Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC)'''
** There are five positions being filled. More information about this election will be available [[m:Special:MyLanguage/Wikimedia Foundation elections/2017/Funds Dissemination Committee|on Meta-Wiki]].
 
* '''Funds Dissemination Committee Ombudsperson (Ombuds)'''
** One position is being filled. More information about this election will be available [[m:Special:MyLanguage/Wikimedia Foundation elections/2017/Funds Dissemination Committee Ombudsperson|on Meta-Wiki]].
 
Please note that this year the Board of Trustees elections will be held before the FDC and Ombuds elections. Candidates who are not elected to the Board are explicitly permitted and encouraged to submit themselves as candidates to the FDC or Ombuds positions after the results of the Board elections are announced.
 
More information on this year's elections can be found [[m:Special:MyLanguage/Wikimedia Foundation elections/2017|on Meta-Wiki]].

The [[foundation:|Wikimedia Foundation]] will be testing its secondary data center in Dallas. This will make sure that Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia wikis can stay online even after a disaster. To make sure everything is working, the Wikimedia Technology department needs to conduct a planned test. This test will show whether they can reliably switch from one data center to the other. It requires many teams to prepare for the test and to be available to fix any unexpected problems.
 
They will switch all traffic to the secondary data center on '''Wednesday, 19 April 2017'''.
On '''Wednesday, 3 May 2017''', they will switch back to the primary data center.
 
Unfortunately, because of some limitations in [[mw:Manual:What is MediaWiki?|MediaWiki]], all editing must stop during those two switches. We apologize for this disruption, and we are working to minimize it in the future.
 
'''You will be able to read, but not edit, all wikis for a short period of time.'''
 
*You will not be able to edit for approximately 20 to 30 minutes on Wednesday, 19 April and Wednesday, 3 May. The test will start at [https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20170419T14 14:00 UTC] (15:00 BST, 16:00 CEST, 10:00 EDT, 07:00 PDT, 23:00 JST, and in New Zealand at 02:00 NZST on Thursday 20 April and Thursday 4 May).
*If you try to edit or save during these times, you will see an error message. We hope that no edits will be lost during these minutes, but we can't guarantee it. If you see the error message, then please wait until everything is back to normal. Then you should be able to save your edit. But, we recommend that you make a copy of your changes first, just in case.
 
''Other effects'':
 
*Background jobs will be slower and some may be dropped. Red links might not be updated as quickly as normal. If you create an article that is already linked somewhere else, the link will stay red longer than usual. Some long-running scripts will have to be stopped.
*There will be code freezes for the weeks of 17 April 2017 and 1 May 2017. Non-essential code deployments will not happen.
 
This project may be postponed if necessary. You can [[wikitech:Switch Datacenter#Schedule for 2017 switch|read the schedule at wikitech.wikimedia.org]]. Any changes will be announced in the schedule. There will be more notifications about this.

The Wikimedia movement strategy core team and working groups have completed reviewing the more than 1800 thematic statements we received from the first discussion. They have identified [[m:Special:MyLanguage/Strategy/Wikimedia movement/2017/Cycle 2|5 themes that were consistent across all the conversations]] - each with their own set of sub-themes. These are not the final themes, just an initial working draft of the core concepts.
 
You are invited to [[m:Special:MyLanguage/Strategy/Wikimedia movement/2017/Participate|join the online and offline discussions taking place]] on these 5 themes. This round of discussions will take place between now and June 12th. You can discuss as many as you like; we ask you to participate in the ones that are most (or least) important to you.
 
Here are the five themes, each has a page on Meta-Wiki with more information about the theme and how to participate in that theme's discussion:

== Improved search in deleted pages archive ==
 
{{int:please-translate}}
 
During Wikimedia Hackathon 2016, the [[mw:Wikimedia_Discovery|Discovery]] team [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T109561 worked] on one of the items on the 2015 community wishlist, namely [[m:2015_Community_Wishlist_Survey/Search#Provide_a_means_of_searching_for_deleted_pages|enabling searching the archive of deleted pages]]. This feature is now ready for production deployment, and will be enabled on all wikis, except Wikidata.
 
Right now, the feature is behind a feature flag - to use it on your wiki, please go to the <code>Special:Undelete</code> page, and add <code>&fuzzy=1</code> to the URL, like this: https://test.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3AUndelete&fuzzy=1. Then search for the pages you're interested in. There should be more results than before, due to using ElasticSearch indexing (via the CirrusSearch extension).
 
We plan to enable this improved search by default on all wikis soon (around August 1, 2017). If you have any objections to this - please raise them with the Discovery team via [http://mailto:discovery@lists.wikimedia.org email] or on this announcement's discussion page. Like most Mediawiki configuration parameters, the functionality can be configured per wiki.
Once the improved search becomes the default, you can still access the old mode using <code>&fuzzy=0</code> in the URL, like this: https://test.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3AUndelete&fuzzy=0

== Accessible editing buttons ==
 
<div class="plainlinks mw-content-ltr" lang="en" dir="ltr">The MediaWiki developers have been slowly improving the accessibility of the user interface. The next step in this transition will change the appearance of some buttons and may break some outdated (non-updated or unmaintained) user scripts and gadgets.
 
You can see and use the [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Project:Sandbox?action=submit&ooui=0 old] and [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Project:Sandbox?action=submit&ooui=1 new] versions now. Most editors will only notice that some buttons are slightly larger and have different colors.

File:MediaWiki edit page buttons accessibility change 2017, after.png|Buttons after the change
</gallery>
 
However, this change also affects some user scripts and gadgets. Unfortunately, some of them may not work well in the new system. <mark>If you maintain any user scripts or gadgets that are used for editing, please see '''[[:mw:Contributors/Projects/Accessible editing buttons]]''' for information on how to test and fix your scripts. Outdated scripts can be tested and fixed now.</mark>
 
This change will probably reach this wiki on '''Tuesday, 1 August 2017'''. Please leave a note at [[:mw:Talk:Contributors/Projects/Accessible editing buttons]] if you need help.</div> --[[m:User:Whatamidoing (WMF)|Whatamidoing (WMF)]] ([[m:User talk:Whatamidoing (WMF)|talk]]) 18:56, 27. julij 2017 (CEST)

== New print to pdf feature for mobile web readers ==
 
<div class="plainlinks mw-content-ltr" lang="en" dir="ltr">
'''New print to pdf feature for mobile web readers'''
 
The Readers web team will be deploying a new feature this week to make it [[mw:Reading/Web/Projects/Mobile_PDFs|easier to download PDF versions of articles on the mobile website]].
 
Providing better offline functionality was one of the highlighted areas from [[m:New_Readers/Offline|the research done by the New Readers team in Mexico, Nigeria, and India]]. The teams created a prototype for mobile PDFs which was evaluated by user research and community feedback. The [[m:New_Readers/Offline#Concept_testing_for_mobile_web|prototype evaluation]] received positive feedback and results, so development continued.
 
For the initial deployment, the feature will be available to Google Chrome browsers on Android. Support for other mobile browsers to come in the future. For Chrome, the feature will use the native Android print functionality. Users can choose to download a webpage as a PDF. [[mw:Reading/Web/Projects/Print_Styles#Mobile_Printing|Mobile print styles]] will be used for these PDFs to ensure optimal readability for smaller screens.
 
The feature is available starting Wednesday, Nov 15. For more information, see [[mw:Reading/Web/Projects/Mobile_PDFs|the project page on MediaWiki.org]].

== Update on page issues on mobile web ==
 
<div class="plainlinks mw-content-ltr" lang="en" dir="ltr">
'''Update on page issues on mobile web'''
 
{{int:please-translate}}
Hi everyone. The [[mw:Reading/Web/Team|Readers web team]] has recently begun working on exposing issue templates on the mobile website. Currently, details about issues with page content are generally hidden on the mobile website. This leaves readers unaware of the reliability of the pages they are reading. The goal of this project is to improve awareness of particular issues within an article on the mobile web. We will do this by changing the visual styling of page issues.
 
So far, we have [[mw:Reading/Web/Projects/Mobile Page Issues|drafted a proposal on the design and implementation]] of the project. We were also able to run [[mw:Reading/Web/Projects/Mobile Page Issues/Research Results|user testing on the proposed designs]]. The tests so far have positive results. Here is a quick summary of what we learned:
* The new treatment increases awareness of page issues among participants. This is true particularly when they are in a more evaluative/critical mode.
* Page issues make sense to readers and they understand how they work
* Readers care about page issues and consider them important
* Readers had overwhelmingly positive sentiments towards Wikipedia associated with learning about page issues
Our next step would be to start implementing these changes. We wanted to reach out to you for any concerns, thoughts, and suggestions you might have before beginning development. Please [[mw:Reading/Web/Projects/Mobile Page Issues|visit the project page]] where we have more information and mockups of how this may look. Please [[mw:Talk:Reading/Web/Projects/Mobile Page Issues|leave feedback on the talk page]].
