The Community Wishlist SurveyEdit
You get this message because you’ve previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey. I just wanted to let you know that this year’s survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until 11 November: Community Wishlist Survey 2019.
You can vote from November 16 to November 30. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won’t send out a separate reminder to you about that. /Johan (WMF) 11:24, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
2019 Anno delle lingue indigene: Nazioni UniteEdit
Scusa se ti scrivo in italiano, non so scrivere in altra lingua, rispondimi pure nella lingua che preferisci, (io riesco a leggere il francese). Come ben sai le Nazioni Unite hanno proclamato il 2019 come l'Anno delle lingue indigene. Ho visto che tu sei esperto di lingue indigene canadesi. In Europa i problemi son diversi, ma anche noi abbiamo molte lingue che corrono il rischio d'estinzione. Per fortuna le lingue europee hanno, in genere, una letteratura molto ricca: Wikisource è un progetto molto adatto per raccogliere tutti i testi in Pubblico Dominio o in Creative Commons. io sono in contatto con chi segue i seguenti progetti:
- ladino dolomitico: https://wikisource.org/wiki/Main_Page/Ladin +
- romancio: https://wikisource.org/wiki/Main_Page/Rumantsch
- istriota: https://wikisource.org/wiki/Main_Page/Istriot
- lombardo: https://wikisource.org/wiki/Main_Page/Lumbaart
- ligure: https://wikisource.org/wiki/Main_Page/Ligure
- napoletano: https://wikisource.org/wiki/Main_Page/Napulitano
- Veneto: https://vec.wikisource.org/wiki/Pagina_prinsipale
- Piemontese: https://pms.wikisource.org/wiki/Intrada
Potremmo tentare di fare una grande iniziativa comune per tutte le lingue che corrono il rischio di scomparire o che sono sottorappresentate nei progetti Wikimedia. Nel mese di novembre è anche possibile fare una domanda di GRANT a WMF. Forse tutti insieme potremmo presentare un progetto credibile ed importante.--Mizardellorsa (talk) 21:24, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Captions in JanuaryEdit
My apologies if this is a duplicate message for you, it is being sent to multiple lists which you may be signed up for.
Hi all, following up on last month's announcement...
Multilingual file captions will be released this week, on either Wednesday, 9 January or Thursday, 10 January 2019. Captions are a feature to add short, translatable descriptions to files. Here's some links you might want to look follow before the release, if you haven't already:
- Read over the help page for using captions - I wrote the page on mediawiki.org because captions are available for any MediaWiki user, feel free to host/modify a copy of the page here on Commons.
- Test out using captions on Beta Commons.
- Leave feedback about the test on the captions test talk page, if you have anything you'd like to say prior to release.
Additionally, there will be an IRC office hour on Thursday, 10 January with the Structured Data team to talk about file captions, as well as anything else the community may be interested in. Date/time conversion, as well as a link to join, are on Meta.Thanks for your time, I look forward to seeing those who can make it to the IRC office hour on Thursday. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:09, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
