GlobalReplace[modifica wikitesto]

I've been running GlobalReplace 0.3 to mass-replace some of the highest use raster files across Wikimedia (e.g. File:600px Rosso e Nero.png) but unfortunately my edits on the Italian wiki were reverted and my account blocked for a day for "unauthorised bot", as far as I can tell from my very limited Italian. Does anyone know how I should go about making the edits if not with that tool, or perhaps getting some kind of flag set to enable me to make the edits? There are several templates which are transcluded to several hundred pages each which probably account for most of the uses but I think there are possibly thousands of individual cases as well, so the tool would be incredibly useful and save a lot of time.

Wikidata: Access to data from arbitrary items is coming[modifica wikitesto]

(Sorry for writing in English)

When using data from Wikidata on Wikipedia and other sister projects, there is currently a limitation in place that hinders some use cases: data can only be accessed from the corresponding item. So, for example, the Wikipedia article about Berlin can only get data from the Wikidata item about Berlin but not from the item about Germany. This had technical reasons. We are now removing this limitation. It is already done for French Wikisource and Dutch Wikipedia. Your project is one of the next ones:

  • 18. May: Farsi Wikipedia, English Wikivoyage, Hebrew Wikipedia
  • 1. June: Italian Wikipedia, all remaining Wikisource

We hope to have it rolled out nearly everywhere by the end of June 2015.

We invite you to play around with this new feature if you are one of the people who have been waiting for this for a long time. If you have technical issues/questions with this you can come to d:Wikidata:Contact the development team.

A note of caution: Please be careful with how many items you use for a single page. If it is too many pages, loading might get slow. We will have to see how the feature behaves in production to see where we need to tweak and how.

How to use it, once it is enabled:

Wikidata: Access to data from arbitrary items is here[modifica wikitesto]

Exquisite-kfind.png Lo stesso argomento in dettaglio: Wikipedia:Bar/Discussioni/Due notizie da Wikidata.
traduzione (libera) di valepert
In precedenza è stato annunciato il cosiddetto accesso arbitrario. Adesso risulta abilitato.
Maggiori informazioni: quando si utilizzava Wikidata sulla maggior parte delle Wikipedia e su altri progetti fratelli, vi era la limitazione che era possibile accedere ai dati solamente dell'elemento corrispondente. Per esempio la voce su Berlino poteva accedere solamente all'elemento Wikidata relativo a Berlino e non all'elemento relativo alla Germania. Questa limitazione era puramente tecnica ed è stata rimossa da questo progetto.
Vi invitiamo a provare la nuova funzionalità, soprattutto se l'attendevate da tempo. Eventuali domande o problemi tecnici vanno posti al team di sviluppo.
Come usarla:
  • Funzioni parser: {{#property:P36|from=Q183}} restituisce la capitale (proprietà P36) dell'elemento relativo alla Germania (Q183)
  • Lua: consulta pagina su MediaWiki

Würde gerne den deutschen Artikel Gran Premio Nuvolari in das italienische Wikipedia erfassen[modifica wikitesto]

Ich würde gerne den deutschen Artikel "Gran Premio Nuvolari" in das italienische Wikipedia erfassen, da es sich zwar um eine internationale Veranstaltung handelt, jedoch die Hälfte der Teilnehmer aus Italien kommen und das Rennen auch in Norditalien stattfindet.

Leider finde ich mich im italienischen Wikipedia nicht zurecht. Der Text wurde mir bereits zur Hälfte übersetzt (hefte ich ans Ende der Nachricht), doch bräuchte ich Hilfe bei der restlichen Erstellung des Artikels und bei der Einstellung zur Prüfung.

Bin um jede Hilfe dankbar.

Viele Grüße

l Gran Premio Nuvolari è una corsa di auto d’epoca ufficiale, che ha avuto luogo tra il 1954 e il 1957 nel Nord Italia. Dal 1991, il gran premio rinasce con un profilo internazionale, mantenendo lo stesso nome. I membri di Mantova Corse (Motorsportclub) Luca Bergamaschi, Marco Marani, Fabio Novelle e Claudio Rossi hanno trasformato il troppo piccolo e non valorizzato Museo Tazio Nuvolari nel cuore della città di Mantova, dando lustro alle imprese di uno dei più grandi piloti di tutti i tempi, un mito dell’automobilismo sportivo. Insieme alla Maison d’orologeria svizzera Eberhard & Co., che ha realizzato una collezione dedicata di a Tazio Nuvolari, il Gran Premio Nuvolari è stato ristabilito per la prima volta nel 1991. Il percorso cambia ogni anno, con partenza e arrivo a Mantova, toccando circuiti storici come l’Autodromo di Imola e le città di Rimini, Siena e Ferrara. La competizione è annoverata fra gli eventi d’auto classiche e rally validi per il Campionato Italiano Oggi il Gran Premio Nuvolari vanta la partecipazione delle migliori scuderie del mondo, ed è specializzato in eventi internazionali di regolarità per auto d'epoca in conformità con le disposizioni FIA / F.I.V.A. / C.S.A.I. Equipaggi provenienti da 16 nazioni con le loro auto d'epoca costruite prima del 1969, si danno battaglia per oltre 1.000 chilometri. Nella nuova edizione della manifestazione, non conta solo la velocità, ma anche i tempi singoli per ogni tappa e categoria.

Pywikibot compat will no longer be supported - Please migrate to pywikibot core[modifica wikitesto]

Sorry for English, I hope someone translates this.
Pywikibot (then "Pywikipediabot") was started back in 2002. In 2007 a new branch (formerly known as "rewrite", now called "core") was started from scratch using the MediaWiki API. The developers of Pywikibot have decided to stop supporting the compat version of Pywikibot due to bad performance and architectural errors that make it hard to update, compared to core. If you are using pywikibot compat it is likely your code will break due to upcoming MediaWiki API changes (e.g. T101524). It is highly recommended you migrate to the core framework. There is a migration guide, and please contact us if you have any problem.

There is an upcoming MediaWiki API breaking change that compat will not be updated for. If your bot's name is in this list, your bot will most likely break.

Thank you,
The Pywikibot development team, 19:30, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

traduzione di valepert

Pywikibot (in precedenza "Pywikipediabot") è un progetto avviato nel 2002. Nel 2007 un nuovo ramo (precedentemente chiamato "rewrite", adesso denominato "core") è stato scritto da zero utilizzando le API MediaWiki. Gli sviluppatori di Pywikibot hanno deciso di interrompere il supporto alla versione compatta di Pywikibot a causa delle cattive prestazioni e la presenza di errori architetturali che ne rendono difficile l'aggiornamento, rispetto al core. Se si utilizza la versione compatta di pywikibot è probabile che il codice possa smettere di funzionare a causa di modifiche alle API (es. T101524). È caldamente suggerito il passaggio al framework core. È disponibile una guida alla migrazione (in inglese). È possibile contattarci in presenza di problemi.

È previsto un cambiamento imminente delle API di MediaWiki e la versione compatta non sarà aggiornata per tale modifica. Se il nome utente del tuo bot compare in questa lista, il suo funzionamento potrebbe interrompersi.

Proposal to create PNG thumbnails of static GIF images[modifica wikitesto]

The thumbnail of this gif is of really bad quality.
How a PNG thumb of this GIF would look like

There is a proposal at the Commons Village Pump requesting feedback about the thumbnails of static GIF images: It states that static GIF files should have their thumbnails created in PNG. The advantages of PNG over GIF would be visible especially with GIF images using an alpha channel. (compare the thumbnails on the side)

This change would affect all wikis, so if you support/oppose or want to give general feedback/concerns, please post them to the proposal page. Thank you. --McZusatz (talk) & MediaWiki message delivery (msg) 07:07, 24 lug 2015 (CEST)

Nichole Galicia[modifica wikitesto]


I represent Nichole Galicia and the information on her page, which I have tried to edit numerous times, has been consistently reverted back to its original state which is grossly incorrect. Ms. Galicia prefers her birthday not to be shown, but your stubborn moderator refuses to allow that. Upon entering her valid birthdate, your moderator continued to revert the article to its incorrect state. This is a very serious issue. A fallacy in an actress' age can severely damage her career--such is the concern of Ms. Galicia. Please ensure the incorrect date of birth is removed. Additionally, if it is possible not to display the age at all, please see to it that it is done so.

sfumato[modifica wikitesto]

Dear italian Wikipedians... How would you translate sfumato into English (or Dutch if you might be able to...). I do know what it means in painting, but what is the original meaning of the word. Additional information would be appreciated, for instance, how old is this word, is it still used in normal Italian language, or only in painting? Thank you! Ellywa (msg) 19:40, 8 set 2015 (CEST)

"sfumato" in English is soft, vague. in Italian we often use it as adjective (like "biondo sfumato" for pale blonde hair) or as verb ("l'affare è sfumato" = the deal had gone up in smoke). the word comes from "fumo" (smoke, fume). --valepert 20:24, 8 set 2015 (CEST)
There are two meanings: the first one is the idiom "come up in smoke", the second one is "blurred". The second one is where it comes from the usage in painting: the style invented by Leonardo (the use of thin brushes, lots and lots of coats everytime with a very small amount of paint, in order to hide the various coats of paint and the sign of brushes) has as a common result the flesh of human figures a bit blurred ("sfumato", masculine singular).
--Skyfall (msg) 21:49, 8 set 2015 (CEST)
Thank you very much my dear friends, for the clear explanations, I have added this to the Dutch and English Wikipedia. I particularly liked your link to biondo sfumato, perhaps you like the Dutch lichtblonde types of girls. (Most of them appear artificially bleached at the hairdresser). Anyway, Leonardo Da Vinci is one of the greatest painters of all times, with his sfumato brunettes. Again many thanks and kind regards, Ellywa (msg) 22:35, 8 set 2015 (CEST)

Wikimania 2016 scholarships ambassadors needed[modifica wikitesto]

Hello! Wikimania 2016 scholarships will soon be open; by the end of the week we'll form the committee and we need your help, see Scholarship committee for details.

If you want to carefully review nearly a thousand applications in January, you might be a perfect committee member. Otherwise, you can volunteer as "ambassador": you will observe all the committee activities, ensure that people from your language or project manage to apply for a scholarship, translate scholarship applications written in your language to English and so on. Ambassadors are allowed to ask for a scholarship, unlike committee members.

Your input requested on the proposed #FreeBassel banner campaign[modifica wikitesto]

This is a message regarding the proposed 2015 Free Bassel banner. Translations are available.

Hi everyone,

This is to inform all Wikimedia contributors that a straw poll seeking your involvement has just been started on Meta-Wiki.

As some of your might be aware, a small group of Wikimedia volunteers have proposed a banner campaign informing Wikipedia readers about the urgent situation of our fellow Wikipedian, open source software developer and Creative Commons activist, Bassel Khartabil. An exemplary banner and an explanatory page have now been prepared, and translated into about half a dozen languages by volunteer translators.

We are seeking your involvement to decide if the global Wikimedia community approves starting a banner campaign asking Wikipedia readers to call on the Syrian government to release Bassel from prison. We understand that a campaign like this would be unprecedented in Wikipedia's history, which is why we're seeking the widest possible consensus among the community.

Given Bassel's urgent situation and the resulting tight schedule, we ask everyone to get involved with the poll and the discussion to the widest possible extent, and to promote it among your communities as soon as possible.

(Apologies for writing in English; please kindly translate this message into your own language.)

Thank you for your participation!
