DiscussionEdit

  • This proposal overlaps with Wiki Loves Monuments (Sept. 1-30), which is a bigger event having a much higher impact on all Wikimedia projects, not only Russian Wikipedia. Article-writing contests (edit-a-thons) in ru.wp are highly specialized and typically attract only a handful of participants. The highest level of participation was 73 in the last 2 years, and it's more like 30-40 on average. In contrast, WLM Russia has the stable record of about 900 participants per year, about 80% being new users, and gives a much better outreach. Last year it was advised by the Central Notice administrator that only one banner campaign should be run at a time. In this case, it seems logical to choose Wiki Loves Monuments for September, because the edit-a-thon will continue in October, and advertising edit-a-thons via the Central Notice has never had any serious effect on the level of participation, especially among new users. --Alexander (talk) 20:31, 10 August 2019 (UTC)
  •   Done, request campaign duration 1st October 2019 → 30th November 2019. — Niklitov (talk) 13:10, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support This Wiki Tolmach competition is very important because it covers the most popular wikipedia articles about science. This is a competition not only of articles, but also of scientific illustrations. This is part of the famouse Wiki Science Contest (Ex: c:Commons:European Science Photo Competition 2015, etc.). Two banners (Wiki Loves Monuments and Wiki Science: Wiki Tolmach) will not interfere with each other. On the contrary, complement each other. Wiki Tolmach is very large competition with good prizes for Wikipedians is software (Ex: Adobe, etc.) and best software training courses. — Niklitov (talk) 14:14, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support Both Wiki-Tolmach & Wiki Loves Monuments are important & it's OK to have more than one banner campaign running at once. + all Wikipedias in the languages of Russia will benefit from Russian Wikipedia being seen like a more credible resource within the country.--Frhdkazan (talk) 17:40, 30 August 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support An unique competition that can provide valuable experience. --Dmitry Rozhkov (talk) 15:15, 31 August 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support Wiki-Tolmach project is going to help to improve clearness of the part of Wikipedia that is most used by the readers: articles preambles (both text and leading infographics), in most popular scientific articles. And it is not just about improving some number of articles, but also about elaboration of approaches that may be scaled and used in other articles and language editions of Wikipedia. So, if we talk about importance, it may be even much more important for the future of Wikipedia. I know both contests well, being involved in both, and I'm convinced they both are important. However, we don't have to compare the levels of importance, as Wiki-Tolmach and WLM suit quite well to coexist succesfully, as they target quite different groups of contributors that almost never intersect: WLM targets photographers, while Wiki-Tolmach targets writers/editors/reviewers and illustrators. Dr Bug (Vladimir V. Medeyko) 19:30, 31 August 2019 (UTC)
Let me just point out that this and the three other support votes are from the Wikimedia RU members, and Wikimedia RU is the beneficiary of the contest in question, as they will receive sponsor money from it. There has been no support from uninvolved community members, and in fact the community raised an important critique that, sadly, has not been addressed by the organizers. --Alexander (talk) 07:29, 1 September 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose after a more careful look at the landing page. In my opinion, the contest is not well prepared and organized in a non-professional manner. First, the organizers offer people to edit a subset of 175 pages chosen by unnamed experts. Even a brief check shows that at least the part of this subset related to maths and natural sciences was prepared without consulting any real experts or Wikipedia editors. A topic in chemistry with a reasonably good Wikipedia article is on the list, while a similar chemistry topic with a very short article is not. A topic in physics is chosen, while another topic required for explaining the former, is not. Basically, efforts of editors will be channeled into editing 175 randomly chosen articles, which is neither the point of the contest, nor an efficient usage of the Central Notice.
Second, the jury comprises three Wikimedia RU members having no expertise in maths, natural or Earth sciences that, on the other hand, encompass at least half of the content that will be (presumably) generated during this contest. It basically means that the organizers have not made an effort of composing a diverse and professional jury. --Alexander (talk) 07:29, 1 September 2019 (UTC)
  Comment Competition Pertner — Russian Academy of Sciences. The scientific nature of the article is evaluated by experts in each specialty. The popular science style is fascinated by scientific journalists. The jury sums up. The list of the most popular articles came from a Vsenauka research project that lasted several months. Also, the participant can take any scientific article. All this is written in the regulations on the competition and on the page of the Wiki Tolmach competition. — Niklitov (talk) 07:31, 2 September 2019 (UTC)
  •   Done, request campaign duration 1st October 2019 → 30th November 2019. — Niklitov (talk) 13:10, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

Summary commentEdit

In order to help to move the situation forward (and it urgently should go forward, because the competition is started, and it needs the Central Notice in order to increase awareness), I will now try to check all the objections (both raised here or on the contests' talk page).

  • The intersection with WLM is not an issue anymore, because WLM campaign is over. The period is ajusted accordingly.
  • It's wrong to claim that edit-a-thons don't gain from the Central Notices. For example, there are CEE Spring and Asian Month edit-a-thons that use Central Notices and get participants and overall awareness among both Wikimedians and external world. (We're organizing Russian part of these competitions.) On the other hand, we organized Russian part of similar international Finno-Ugric topic edit-a-thon, that did NOT use the Central Notice, and got few participant, and almost nobody knows about it even among Wikimedians, and therefore Finno-Ugric topic loses coverage. (I understand that it is not a maid of stone proof of usefullness of the Central Notice, but at least it's real experience.)
  • Wiki-Tolmach seems to especially need more attention, because it's the first time when we try to engage a significant number of scientists (as experts) in counteractions with Wikimedia and Wikipedia. It would be a pity to lose both opportunities of further engagement of those scientists, and to overcome a common reluctance among scientists to deal with Wikipedia due to fears that it may negatively impact their reputation.
  • And I would like to stress yet another time - this contest is conducted in cooperation with Russian Academy of Sciences (if you need more details, it is supported on the level of Alexey Khokhlov, the vice president of Russian Academy of Sciences, and the Commission for Popularisation of Science of Russian Academy of Sciences, which he heads).
  • I wish to stress that money received by Wikimedia RU for this contest are fixed, the money are not anyhow tied to Central Notice or even outcome of the contest in general. Wikimedia RU wishes this contest to be successful purely due to interests of Wikimedia movement. We consider this contest a quite important experiment (particularly due to engagement of scientinsts) and hopefully a base for further improvements in the probably most important part of Wikipedia - the articles on scientific topics.
  • The 175 articles are not selected randomly. These are the most viewed scientific topic articles that contain evident gaps in preambles. Articles with no such gaps, for example Featured articles and Good articles were removed from the list. Moreover, it is not an obligatory list, it's an advisory list of the articles that need attention foremost, but the contest participant may work on other scientific topic articles. Because the list contains the most exposed articles, their improvement means that efforts of the participants will have maximum gain for the Wikipedia readers.
  • The jury is competent enough to do the job it appointed to. First, the jury consists of both experienced Wikimedians, and non-wikimedians (journalists) specialized in popularisations of science. The primary task of Wikimedian part of the jury is to ensure that the contest and its outcome maximally fits Wikimedia movement/Wikipedia project rules, principles, practices and interests. Second, all member of the jury posess high education, and have general interest in sciences, and therefore are able to understand scientific topic articles; also they can anytime consult scientists experts in specific topics when it is necessary.
  • The contest page is made much more compact now. Maybe something lost during the compactification, but anyhow it removed all objections to the wording.
  • The limitation that the contestants must be Russian residents only is lifted because the coorganizers found a way how to legally award foreigners.

If I missed any significant objection, please write. Dr Bug (Vladimir V. Medeyko) 09:10, 24 October 2019 (UTC)

I'm not an expert on banner attractiveness, but it's not obvious to me that the banner is clickable (I get a hint with a mouse-over, of course, but is it enough?). Can we/should we do something about it? -- Ата (talk) 15:23, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec and Ата: Perhaps we can make only part of the text clickable (as in my draft), and it would create a clearer distinction. --AntonProtsiuk (WMUA) (talk) 22:22, 30 October 2019 (UTC)

Also answered one of questions. George Ho (talk) 21:31, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
  • I doubt IPs would be interested in this. Frankly, I'm not sure it's useful to have a broader notification than a watchlist notice for this. --Yair rand (talk) 22:01, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
    • Also, I don't think the proposed text ("on what/how to change about the Wikimedia projects") is accurate. The recommendations are mostly about our back-end support structures. --Yair rand (talk) 22:04, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
      • Struck out previous banner texts, and limiting banner to just logged-in users. BTW, what are "back-end support structures"? It looks too technical for many users. George Ho (talk) 22:27, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
        • By support structures, I was referring to our various off-wiki organizations like the Wikimedia Foundation and chapters and other affiliates. --Yair rand (talk) 22:30, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
          • Amended banner text. George Ho (talk) 23:02, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

I recently noticed that the second iteration of the draft recommendations were published. How would this affect the CentralNotice proposal? Must I narrow the target to every current iteration whenever newer iteration arrives? George Ho (talk) 22:28, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

Central Notice admin commentsEdit

  Approved, campaign settings to be clarified. @George Ho: Could you please clarify when should your banner be displayed? "August 2019 → October or November 2019" is too ambigous (and long). Is there any deadline, or timeframe when you would like to attract more users? I also assume you want to target only logged in users. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 19:17, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

@Benoit Rochon, DerHexer, Ilario, Itzike, and Mardetanha: @Matiia, Martin Urbanec, NahidSultan, Romaine, and Samat: @Steinsplitter, Trijnstel, Shanmugamp7, and Vituzzu: Hi, I'd like to ask you if anything else is needed from our side so as to move forward with this request (and the one that should be activated right after this one). It's my first time here and I wouldn't like to have it stalled because I forgot something. Thanks in advance! --ESM (talk) 11:04, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec: Thank you for your quick reply & approval. The volunteer that has designed the banners has been told to check that everything is alright; we'll keep in touch regarding this matter. Also, regarding your concerns about the notice duration, I'd like to provide some reasons that might ease them. Viquitrobada is the most important event for the Catalan community: we'd like to make users and editors aware of it and we'd like to strengthen participation as much as possible especially by reaching out to people that have never been involved in real-life gatherings of the Catalan community. The Catalan community isn't a CentralNotice frequent user, which has led us to have our sites sometimes occupied by notices that are barely related to us and/or haven't been notified to us in advance, being this one of the reasons that have led us to ask for two consecutive banners, that we are really looking forward to being displayed for the requested periods of time. Thanks for your understanding! --ESM (talk) 07:19, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

I'm fine with both banners running up to a month (in total). Would enabling the first banner by end of October be enough for you? --Martin Urbanec (talk) 20:10, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec: Thank you very much for your understanding! A month will be fine for us: if you consider it appropriate the first banner can be enabled the 28th October (Monday) instead of the 26th (Saturday). Thanks again! --ESM (talk) 15:58, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Sure! So to recap, this banner should run from 28th October to 15th November, and then CentralNotice/Request/Viquitrobada 2019 15th November to 28th November? --Martin Urbanec (talk) 16:34, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

For your future reference, <a href="#" title="Close" onclick="mw.centralNotice.hideBanner();return false;"><div class="cn-closeButton">Close</div></a> can do it for you. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 22:06, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec: For some reason, when the banner loads it causes issues on the rest of the page. Any clue as to why it may be happening? --Townie (talk) 20:04, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
Which kind of issue you mean? It's displaying fine on my end. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 20:07, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
It seems all external links now have a blue background color. I don't think this happened with your original banner. --Townie (talk) 21:53, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: If we don't find anything, I think it would be a good idea to remove this banner. Maybe swap it for the one in the next campaign? --Townie (talk) 13:22, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
  Fixed All external links have CSS class text, which conflicted with your banner stylesheet. I've wrapped banner into a div, and prefixed all CSS selectors with .banner-container, which should make the CSS apply only inside the container I just added. Let me know if it looks okay now! --Martin Urbanec (talk) 14:16, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec: Hi, it seems that cawiki users (even those from outside Spain) see a Wiki Loves Folk banner alternated with the Viquitrobada one. We weren't aware that this campaign would also be visible in cawiki projects, since as far as we know we aren't taking an active part in this contest, at least this year. Can you please take a look at it? We're concerned about the Viquitrobada banner not being visible enough for cawiki users from abroad, since we're especially interested to reach to them. Thanks in advance! --ESM (talk) 12:21, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

Campaign settings altered. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 12:34, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec: It's me again :P Could you please add the "Close" button to the banner. The translation in Catalan would be "Tanca". Thanks a lot, once again! --Townie (talk) 18:20, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

Central Notice admin commentsEdit

  Approved, except duration. Conferences are acceptable usage of CentralNotice. However, October => start of December is extremely long campaign. I suggest displaying banner only for, let's say, 2 weeks in that period of time? In the case of low number of participants, we might consider re-enabling for a while. I'll create banner preview, please let me know if this is okay, and if so, which weeks would you suggest. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 11:26, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

Banner preview: [3]. Please let me know if that's okay. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 11:30, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec: Per our rules all external links now must be https or not be. viquitrobada.cat is http only (using https trigger a server error). I suggest we just use the ca.wikipedia.org landing page instead of proxying it through an insecure external site. Thoughts? —MarcoAurelio (talk) 09:42, 22 October 2019 (UTC)
I could finally see the banner (Special:CentralNoticeBanners is broken for me; I reported a bug months ago...). I see that link is not used and instead the Wikipedia link is so good to go for me. No objections. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 09:53, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

Per discussion above, this is fully   Approved. Created as [4] (and [5], which is the subsequent campaign). Waiting for final confirmation of campaign parameters from ESM, then, I'll enable the campaign, so it will go live on decided date. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 17:39, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

  • @Rodelar: Please provide a link to where the target wiki(s) were notified of this CentralNotice request. Thanks. (I assume that since the target pages are in Spanish, this is intended to be for the Spanish wikis?) --Yair rand (talk) 17:04, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
@Yair rand: Do you mean I have to notify about this request on a specific wiki? --Rodelar (talk) 17:33, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
@Rodelar: Yes, as required by the guidelines. Notification and community consensus are required for CentralNotice use. --Yair rand (talk) 17:45, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
@Yair rand: While it´s a photographic contest, the main page is in Commons and the diffusion in previous years was done through the banner and social media, so no information in the village pump of Wikipedia or similar spaces. --Rodelar (talk) 18:55, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
@Rodelar: Well, there's still plenty of time before November to provide the relevant notifications and allow the community to decide on whether this campaign should run. --Yair rand (talk) 19:20, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
Why should a project which is not target of the campaign should vote on a campaign? Eswiki is not Spain. Hence, I have never seen any such vote before on similar photo contest. The campaign looks fine to me. Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 19:31, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
@DerHexer: Are any projects other than Spanish projects intended to be included? If so, I'd recommend changing the destination page to not be Spanish-only. If there are multiple targets, there can be multiple projects notified. Notification and consensus are requirements. --Yair rand (talk) 22:55, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
For returning events like Wiki Loves campaigns the CentralNotice administators never insisted on further notifications or consensus every year. Since I don't know of any opposite opinions from my fellows, the same will also have to apply to Wiki Loves Folk. Nevertheless, I agree that with the current proposed language settings, the landing page should also handle non-Spanish language visitors or should be limited to Spanish languages. —DerHexer (Talk) 23:47, 19 September 2019 (UTC)

I want to put a bit of context in it. I understand that request for CentralNotice have higher requirements now, to not abuse of it. Wiki Loves Folk is a photo contest, like Wiki Loves Monuments and Wiki Loves Earth, but focused in festivals and festivities. This will be the 4th edition of the contest, with no opposition in last years, and we did not have any comment againts it in any language, and for me this is quite relevant. In Spain there are 8 projects in languages of the country, not only Spanish (an, ast, ca, es, eu, ext, gl and oc), but the target is people in Spain. Many people in Spain read Wikipedia in English or in other languages like French, or their languages for communities with a foreign heritage, like Romanian, Arabic, etc.

I don't understand what Yair rand means with Spanish-only, do you mean Spanish language or projects in languages of Spain? Many times, many people assume that one country = one language, and that's not true at all. This is true only for very few cases. As I said, the focus is all people based in the country, because the language they use is not the important thing, because they can have photos of the festivities and they can read wikipedia in Urdu for example. I don't imagine a banner in Germany or UK for Wiki Loves Monuments only in the languages from there, but in all projects. Here is the same. And this discussion makes me think. Who has to reach the consensus in one project for a country? the whole community or the community from that country only? I mean, in Russian Wikipedia for example, but the banner is shown only in Spain, and readers from Russia do not see the banner, do editors from outside of Spain in that language discuss that or only who is "affected" by the CentralNotice? This is a wider question that applies for all requests. Thanks. Millars (talk) 10:50, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

We can also have the banner translatable, in that case, it must be in English as the primary language (any number of alternate versions may be provided as well).

The Text will be only German: "Wikipedia vor Ort - Am Sonntag 10. November kannst du die Menschen hinter Wikipedia kennenlernen. Finde eine Veranstaltung in deiner Nähe.". There will be no translation necessary. Just for your record an analogous translation: "Wikipedia locally - on Sunday 10. November you can meet the community. Find an event near to your location."

@Jamie Tubers: Is this still needed? Btw, campaign of two months is too long, campaign should be generally no longer than two weeks. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 17:43, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

Hello Martin Urbanec Yes this is still needed. 2 weeks is quite short for a 2-months' contest campaign. However, with the time left, running the campaign from 1st November to 31st November seems like the only choice left. Thank you.--Jamie Tubers (talk) 16:34, 24 October 2019 (UTC)
That's what the usage guidelines say, see CentralNotice/Usage guidelines. CentralNotice should never be the only mean of propagation, there is a lot of things you can do before a CN, like social networks or mailinglists. i'll draft a banner later today or tomorrow. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 19:34, 24 October 2019 (UTC)
@Jamie Tubers: Drafted at [13]. I would like to request a better logo, ie. with a transparent background. Also, given this is going to be a multilingual banner, please translate via [14] to all languages you want to target. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 20:00, 24 October 2019 (UTC)
Martin Urbanec I would try to get translations for as many languages as I can. However, we may have to run the banner in English in some other African languages where we may be unable to get a translator. Question; Is the banner to be translated through the draft page that you just linked?--Jamie Tubers (talk) 00:44, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, the fact it's a draft doesn't mean anything else than it isn't enabled yet. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 06:48, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
@Jamie Tubers: Hello, I've created a campaign at [15]. However, I'm not going to enable it until you provide a logo with transparent background. I'll add more languages as you add translations. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 15:16, 28 October 2019 (UTC)
Hello Martin Urbanec, I'd like to know the status of this banner. Has it been enabled, as we are already in November? Everything needed seems to be in place. The logo has been made transparent. I have also added translations for several languages (Yoruba, Hausa, Twi, Kiswahili, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, etc). The other wikis can render in English until I can get translators for them. Some community members would soon translate for Igbo and some South African languages (BTW, should I notify you when other translations are added, or they'd be implemented automatically?). Thank you very much.--Jamie Tubers (talk) 21:57, 3 November 2019 (UTC)
@Jamie Tubers: Hi, I've enabled the campaign for the languages that has a translation. Per the usage guidelines, I'm not going to enable a CN at a language which doesn't have a local translation. Please ping me when new translations are ready, so I can enable the banner for new languages. Best, --Martin Urbanec (talk) 08:56, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

  1. Since the contest starts tomorrow, it would be great if the request can be approved as soon as possible. Thank you Wikilover90 (talk) 17:16, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
  2. @Martin Urbanec:I have created the list at User:Tiven2240/Links. Translations are in progress will be completed ASAP. @MarcoAurelio: I understand the above highlighted rule from CN by you. I sincerely apologise as there is delay in it. Whereas as per 10 days back we had just 34 Pages of WAM ready. Now we have 48 pages. As the nature of contest is open and Wikipedias can register anytime it is not possible for us to give the exact figures or links to the community participating. Requesting now saved even the Central Notice Admins time as creation in batch is easy than creation on demand. Last year the same was seen and @-revi: helped alot in the same. I invite you all to give your contribution to the project and increase Asian content on Wikipedia. Happy editing. Best regards --Tiven2240 (talk)
  3. @Martin Urbanec and Tiven2240: I think it would be a good idea to have the banner appear on all types of devices (not only on desktop, but also on android, iphone, ipad and unknown). Mobile users may also be interested in WAM. What do you think? --Patriccck (talk) 18:04, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

While we've been flexible, this kind of "late minute requests" are starting to be the rule rather than the exception, and considering that the project was funded on 24 August 2019 I am thinking that the organisers had plently of time to request this. Thanks for your understanding. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 12:17, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

I second MarcoAurelio's opinion. As a courtesy, I'm going to process this. See my messages to Tulsi, who asked to process this ASAP via IRC.

13:24 <Urbanecm> I need you to get the banner localized

13:25 <Urbanecm> also, check homepages, they should be listed at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:WAM_Translations-link/cs . Feel free to prepare a set of homepages in your userspace, I can move it into MW namespace myself.

Ping once this is done. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 12:28, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec:   Done. I've created homepages in my userspace. See Special:PrefixIndex/User:Tulsi Bhagat/WAM2019/. Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat (contribs | talk) 13:29, 2 November 2019 (UTC)
Great, moved into NS_MEDIAWIKI. Also created [22] with languages that have localization. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 11:08, 3 November 2019 (UTC)
