Request for Temporary (3 month) Adminship[تەھرىرلەش]

Hello. I apologize for writing in English; I am not fluent in Uyghur. I am a VRT Permissions Agent and I would like to perform copyright cleanup on the images hosted on Uyghur Wikipedia. To do this, I require the administrator rights to delete files that violate copyright law. Since there are about 240 images that need to be reviewed, I believe that temporary adminship will be sufficient to complete this task

Upcoming vote on the revised Enforcement Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct[تەھرىرلەش]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hello all,

In mid-January 2023, the Enforcement Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct will undergo a second community-wide ratification vote. This follows the March 2022 vote, which resulted in a majority of voters supporting the Enforcement Guidelines. During the vote, participants helped highlight important community concerns. The Board’s Community Affairs Committee requested that these areas of concern be reviewed.

The volunteer-led Revisions Committee worked hard reviewing community input and making changes. They updated areas of concern, such as training and affirmation requirements, privacy and transparency in the process, and readability and translatability of the document itself.

The revised Enforcement Guidelines can be viewed here, and a comparison of changes can be found here.

How to vote?

Beginning January 17, 2023, voting will be open. This page on Meta-wiki outlines information on how to vote using SecurePoll.

Who can vote?

The eligibility requirements for this vote are the same as for the Wikimedia Board of Trustees elections. See the voter information page for more details about voter eligibility. If you are an eligible voter, you can use your Wikimedia account to access the voting server.

What happens after the vote?

Votes will be scrutinized by an independent group of volunteers, and the results will be published on Wikimedia-l, the Movement Strategy Forum, Diff and on Meta-wiki. Voters will again be able to vote and share concerns they have about the guidelines. The Board of Trustees will look at the levels of support and concerns raised as they look at how the Enforcement Guidelines should be ratified or developed further.

Enabling Content and Section translation tool in Uyghur Wikipedia[تەھرىرلەش]

Hello Friends!

Apologies as this message is not in your native language, Please help translate to your language.

The WMF Language team is pleased to let you know that we will like to enable the Section and Content translation tool in Uyghur Wikipedia. For this, our team will love you to read about the tool and test the new Section Translation tool so you can:

  • Give us your feedback
  • Ask us questions
  • Tell us how to improve it

Below is background information about the tools and how you can test the Section translation tool.

Background information

Content Translation has been a successful tool for editors to create content in their language. More than one million articles have been created across all languages since the tool was released in 2015. However, the tool is not out of beta in Uyghur Wikipedia, limiting the discoverability of the tool and its use and blocking the enablement of the Section translation in your Wikipedia

Section Translation extends the capabilities of Content Translation to support mobile devices. On mobile, the tool will:

  • Guide you to translate one section at a time in order to expand existing articles or create new ones
  • Make it easy to transfer knowledge across languages anytime from your mobile device

We plan to enable the tools on Uyghur Wikipedia in the coming week if there are no objections from your community. After it is enabled, we’ll monitor the content created with the tools and process all the feedback. In any case, feel free to raise any concerns or questions you may already have as a reply to this message or on the project talk page

Try the Section translation tool

Before the enablement, you can try the current implementation of the tool in our testing instance. Once it is enabled on Uyghur Wikipedia, you’ll have access to with your mobile device. You can select an article to translate, and machine translation will be provided as a starting point for editors to improve.

Provide feedback

Please provide feedback about Section translation on the project talk page. We want to  hear about your impressions on

  • The section translation tool
  • What do you think about our plans to enable it
  • Your ideas for improving the tool

Thanks and we look forward to your feedback and questions.

To what extent have native speakers been able to test the automatic translations made by the tool? Machine translation of Uyghur is generally not all that great, and I'm a bit skeptical regarding how this will affect UgWiki Red-tailed hawk (سۆزلىشىش) 03:16, 4 فېۋرال 2023 (UTC)Reply[جاۋاب]
Pinging User:UOzurumba (WMF) Red-tailed hawk (سۆزلىشىش) 07:38, 5 فېۋرال 2023 (UTC)Reply[جاۋاب]
Thank you, Red-tailed hawk, for your question; the Machine translation support in the Content and Section translation tools is meant to be a starting point to aid them in translating articles efficiently; this is to say that a translator can not publish an initial machine translation without reviewing and editing it.
So, there is a mechanism in content translation that measures the level of modification a user makes to the machine translation provided before it is published. In other words, the system notes how many words were added, removed and modified in percentage, which can be adjusted in your Wikipedia to improve the quality of translation if there is a need for that.
With the mechanism in place, your community can monitor the quality of content created with the Machine translation and adjust the machine translation limit (make the machine translation limit more strict if necessary). The above measure ensures that translated articles meet the required quality and takes care of your worries. Also, translators can choose the "Start with an empty paragraph option" when translating.
So far, UgWiki has translated 87 articles using Content translation. Bringing it out of beta and enabling the Section translation will make the tool more discoverable and increase content in Uyghur Wikipedia.
I hope this helped answer your question

Hello, Red-tailed hawk; the WMF Language team would like to enable the Content and Section translation tool this week for your Wikipedia since there are no objections.
Thank you!
UOzurumba (WMF) (سۆزلىشىش) 16:48, 14 فېۋرال 2023 (UTC)Reply[جاۋاب]
I am generally very skeptical of the utility of these tools if the machine translations are not all that good and would likely serve (on this wiki) to create more damage to the project through improper machine translation than benefit by ease-of-use by native speakers. For that reason, I lean in opposition to the broader implementation of the tool. If you would like the broader community to weigh in, discussion in the Uyghur language is going to be necessary; much of the Uyghur world has limited or no understanding of English, and low-quality machine translations will lose the nuance of things like this. Red-tailed hawk (سۆزلىشىش) 01:11, 15 فېۋرال 2023 (UTC)Reply[جاۋاب]
@Red-tailed hawk About your scepticism of the misuse of machine translation, we can only know if we enable it in your Wiki and also have data showing that most of the translations done with the tool are substandard, which would out way the benefits of having the tools and improving the translation experience towards bridging the content gap, translating with ease and other advantages having the tool offers.
If it helps, we can evaluate the tools' usefulness after it is enabled for some time. If there are challenges with it, your community can provide us with feedback, and we will work with your feedback to improve it or remove it, as the case may be. Please, let us know what you think.
Also, I would appreciate it if you could help with the translation (if you can), with

the hope that other people from your community will read this announcement, test the tool and give us feedback on enabling it.

Best regards,

Copyright issues on the Uyghur Wikipedia[تەھرىرلەش]

The vast majority of images on the Uyghur Wikipedia are not provided with computer-readable license tags, which are required by WMF:Resolution:Licensing policy because we do not have an exemption doctrine policy. As an administrator, I have been working over the past several months to move public domain files from this Wiki to Commons, as well as to delete clear violations of copyrights. I will be attempting to complete this work this month; if any files are not tagged with a valid template or otherwise moved to Commons by the end of the month (UTC), then those files will be deleted as presumptive violations of copyright. I will do my utmost over the next month to try to figure out which files are in the public domain or can otherwise be kept under the WMF resolution, but, in the event that there is no evidence by the end of the month that a file is uploaded under a valid free license, then that file will be deleted.

Hello all, an important update on the UCoC Enforcement Guidelines:

The vote on the Enforcement Guidelines in January 2023 showed a majority approval of the Enforcement Guidelines.

Wikimedia Foundation’s 2023-2024 Annual Plan and Upcoming Community Conversations[تەھرىرلەش]

The main purpose of this message is to share with you the draft annual plan of the Wikimedia Foundation for the coming fiscal year from July 2023 to June 2024. The summary of the annual plan is available in multiple languages.

Some Excerpts from the Annual Plan Draft

The Wikimedia Foundation has remained in a period of transition. It welcomed new leadership last year, including a new Chief Executive Officer and Chief Product and Technology Officer. Additionally, the Foundation has navigated conversations with global communities on a range of important issues, from a future charter defining roles and responsibilities, to how we raise shared resources through banner fundraising. This year's Annual Plan attempts to provide more clarity on multi-year strategic issues that do not have quick fixes, and more detailed information on how the Foundation operates.

For the second consecutive year, the Wikimedia Foundation is anchoring its annual plan in the movement's strategy to advance equity. The intention is to connect the Foundation's work even more deeply with the Movement Strategy Recommendations to make even deeper progress towards the 2030 Strategic Direction. This year, the Foundation is recentering its plan around Product and Technology, emphasizing our unique role as a platform for people and communities collaborating on a massive scale. If you are interested to learn more, you can find detailed information on this meta page.

Requesting Your Feedback

Your feedback is highly appreciated, whether being on Meta discussion page or sharing at your local discussion space. Your comments and reflections will help improve the proposal before the Foundation’s Board of Trustees considers the plan and budget in their June meeting.

Community Conversations

Everyone is also invited to participate in the virtual conversation on 30th April 2023 at 6am UTC (check your local time here), which is planned for participants from the Asia Pacific timezone. Kindly see the Diff calendar here. Lisa Seitz Gruwell, Chief Advancement Officer and Deputy to the Chief Executive Officer will be joining the call to share more and learn about your thoughts. You can find the information relating to virtual conversations on the collaboration page. We look forward to seeing you in the upcoming conversation!

I want to bring your attention to the next stage of the Universal Code of Conduct process, which is forming a building committee for the Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C). I invite community members with experience and deep interest in community health and governance to nominate themselves to be part of the U4C building committee, which needs people who are:

  • Knowledgeable about movement community processes, such as, but not limited to, policy drafting, participatory decision making, and application of existing rules and policies on Wikimedia projects
  • Aware and appreciative of the diversity of the movement, such as, but not limited to, languages spoken, identity, geography, and project type
  • Committed to participate for the entire U4C Building Committee period from mid-May - December 2023
  • Comfortable with engaging in difficult, but productive conversations
  • Confidently able to communicate in English

The Building Committee shall consist of volunteer community members, affiliate board or staff, and Wikimedia Foundation staff.

MinT Machine Translation added to Uyghur Wikipedia[تەھرىرلەش]

Hello Uyghur Wikipedians!

Apologies as this message is not in your language, ⧼Please help translate⧽ to your language.

The WMF Language team has added another machine translation (MT) system for Content Translation in your Wikipedia called MinT; you can use MinT machine translation when translating Wikipedia articles using the Content Translation tool.

The WMF Language team provides the MinT service. It is hosted in the Wikimedia Foundation Infrastructure with neural machine translation models that other organizations have released with an open-source license. MinT integrates translation based on NLLB-200 and OpusMT and will replace those as separate options.  This MT is set as optional in your Wikipedia. Still, you can choose not to use it by selecting "Start with empty paragraph" from the "Initial Translation" dropdown menu.

Since MinT is hosted in the WMF Infrastructure and the models are open source, it adheres to Wikipedia's policies about attribution of rights, your privacy as a user and brand representation. You can find more information about the MinT Machine translation and the models on this page.

Please note that the use of the MinT MT is not compulsory. However, we would want your community to:

  • use it to improve the quality of the Machine Translation service
  • provide feedback about the service and its quality, and ask questions about this addition.

We trust that introducing this MT is a good support to the Content Translation tool.

Thank you!

Deploying the Phonos in-line audio player to your Wiki[تەھرىرلەش]


Apologies if this message is not in your language, ⧼Please help translate⧽ to your language.

This wiki will soon be able to use the inline audio player implemented by the Phonos extension. This is part of fulfilling a wishlist proposal of providing audio links that play on click.

With the inline audio player, you can add text-to-speech audio snippets to wiki pages by simply using a tag:

<phonos file="audio file" label="Listen"/>

The above tag will show the text next to a speaker icon, and clicking on it will play the audio instantly without taking you to another page. A common example where you can use this feature is in adding pronunciation to words as illustrated on the English Wiktionary below.

{{audio|en|En-uk-English.oga|Audio (UK)}}

Could become:

<phonos file="En-uk-English.oga" label="Audio (UK)"/>

The inline audio player will be available in your wiki in 2 weeks time; in the meantime, we would like you to read about the features and give us feedback or ask questions about it in this talk page.

Thank you!

Review the Charter for the Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee[تەھرىرلەش]

Hello all,

I am pleased to share the next step in the Universal Code of Conduct work. The Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C) draft charter is now ready for your review.

The Enforcement Guidelines require a Building Committee form to draft a charter that outlines procedures and details for a global committee to be called the Universal Code of Conduct Coordinating Committee (U4C). Over the past few months, the U4C Building Committee worked together as a group to discuss and draft the U4C charter. The U4C Building Committee welcomes feedback about the draft charter now through 22 September 2023. After that date, the U4C Building Committee will revise the charter as needed and a community vote will open shortly afterward.

Join the conversation during the conversation hours or on Meta-wiki.
