Welcome to Meta!Edit

Hello Ferdinando Scala, and welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). If you would like, feel free to ask me questions on my talk page. Happy editing!

A little note about your current editsEdit

Do not put English version of your statement on other language pages. If someone translate that in their languages, they will put it there by their own. In the mean time, if you want to see your statement there, please translate in those language, then post it. — Tanvir | Talk ] 11:35, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

Questions to Board candidatesEdit

Based on the statistics concerning the number of pages read in previous years' Q&As, I infer that few voters take them into account. Personally, I see it as a very interesting exercise despite the fact that we the candidates are also the main readers. I believe it is a unique type of debate among us that is especially interesting.

I have noticed that User Alecmconroy suggested a very interesting series of questions on strategic issues. They can be seen here: User talk:Alecmconroy#More questions for Board Candidates (or others). I have given my opinion, but I see he has not communicated directly to the candidates this set of questions. Perhaps you find them interesting.

I wish you the best possible result in these elections and, if you agree, I suggest that we continue having this type of debate regardless of who is chosen.

Cheers and good luck.--Gomà 10:05, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

I want one of those cameras!Edit

Where did you get that camera that shows what you will look like next December? I want one too.125.239.61.59 22:40, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

-) It is evidently a photo from LAST December...but since I run 4km a day in order to stay fit, you can easily assume it as a photo from NEXT december :-D Please sign your edits, so I can answer to your page...--Ferdinando Scala 10:26, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Help compile Objective Data about the CandidatesEdit

Posted to all candidates talk page:

To aid in the fair evaluation of all the candidates, especially those not active on EnWiki, verifiable data about the candidates is being compiled. Anyone is invited to help compile the data since it is all publicly available on-wiki.

But since the people best qualified to help are the candidates themselves, it seems reasonable to ask:

  • Which languages do you speak? (voter statement)
  • Which projects do you contribute to?
    • For each, when was your first edit?
    • For each, how many total edits? (exact figures not need)
  • Which projects are you an admin on?
  • Are you a bureaucrat? which projects? when?
  • Are you a CheckUser? Which projects? When did you start??
  • Are you a steward? If so when were you made one?
  • Have you served in a verifiable leadership role on a project? (e.g. Like EnWiki's Founder or Arbcom member)
  • Have you served in a verifiable leadership role on at the Chapter or Foundation level? (Trustee, etc)

Are there any objectively verifiable facts that should be included in this guide but aren't?

(Incidentally, this document won't reflect my own personal values or wikipolitical opinions. Ideally it will come to exist outside of my userspace in some neutral, visible location. -- Alecmconroy)

Thank you for your help with board election translationsEdit

 
For your help with board election translations.

Hi! As member of this year's board election committe I would like to give you this barnstar for your help with the translations of the board election pages into Italian. It was very much appreciated! Jon Harald Søby 14:00, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

NapoliEdit

Ciao Ferdinando, imho per rafforzare la candidatura di Napoli bisognerebbe affrontare di petto (nella pagina) il problema della spazzatura, spiegare qual è l'attuale situazione, l'emergenza ha avuto un'eco enorme e temo che molti immaginino ancora un centro città sepolto dai topi, secondo me servirebbe un paragrafo "avrai probabilmente seguito le vicende...ma adesso..." con qualche foto recente (almeno a me la situazione ora è sembrata assolutamente non paragonabile a qualche tempo fa), ciao! --Vituzzu 23:24, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

Imho la contemporaneità con l'UFC dà un vantaggio niente male (anche se la foundation è in un periodo filo-BRIC)...purtroppo io ti posso dare solo appoggi "comunitari", non sono mai stato coinvolto in questo genere di iniziative di WMF e non sono socio di WMI, non so, dovreste decidere voi (che vi sobbarcate il lavoro) se continuare a proporre una candidatura non-ufficiale oppure rimandare tutto ad un futuro più o meno lontano. --Vituzzu 10:14, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
Cioé è possibile presentare la candidatura anche senza l'appoggio di WMI?Questo mi cambierebbe seriamente la prospettiva...--Ferdinando Scala 11:59, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
Oddio mi devo informare, ma mi risultano candidature in paesi privi di chapter, potrei anche dire una cazzata ma io fossi in te manderei due o tre mail informali con la scusa di chiedere suggestions for the future ;) --Vituzzu 13:12, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
Ho chiesto, è molto consigliata, c'è chi propone di farne un requisito formale ma attualmente non lo è. Non so cosa sia successo in assemblea e quali ragioni abbiano portato al non-appoggio, valuta tu il da farsi, ciao! --Vituzzu 13:17, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Wikimaia 2013Edit

Ciao Ferdinando, ho aggiunto la firma dove mi hai suggerito e dato un'occhiata alla pagina. Voglia di fare ne ho e, in questo periodo, anche parecchio tempo libero, quindi non vedo l'ora di aiutarvi a sostenere la candidatura. Se c'è bisogno di qualsiasi cosa, contate pure su di me. A presto!--D.B. 19:58, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Ciao, a proposito di Wikimania 2013 ho visto che alla fine hai messo Napoli tra le candidate ufficiali per ospitare l'evento. Hai quindi deciso di portare avanti il progetto anche senza l'appoggio di WMI? --Reder 16:00, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
Sono contento che alla fine abbiate deciso di portare avanti la candidatura, peccato per la decisione di WMI, ma dato che il supporto aiutava sì, ma non era formalmente necessario, e visto l'impegno e l'entusiasmo con cui state organizzando l'evento penso che abbiate fatto bene a proseguire con il progetto. Se posso fare qualcosa per voi ditemi pure. Buona fortuna! --Reder 12:10, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
Purtroppo non credo che avrei tempo per far parte del comitato organizzatore, ma sono felice di appoggiare e sostenere la vostra causa. --Reder 12:44, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
Ottimo lavoro, questa è una grande notizia! A proposito ho messo un avviso sulla wiki napoletana riguardo a Wikimania 2013, in modo che gli utenti interessati possano arrivare direttamente alla pagina di candidatura. Saluti.--Reder (talk) 09:44, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Naples accommodation pageEdit

I moved your list of Naples accommodations to Wikimania 2013 bids/Naples/Accommodations so people understand why the page exists. I hope that's okay. From a quick look at recent changes, it looked like a misplaced Wikipedia article to delete. Cheers and good luck with your Wikimania bid! Cheers. Aude (talk) 04:04, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Re:New IPEdit

A yeah, I saw that was contributing to the project and why I welcome. Since it is you, not gonna do it....  .Érico msg 23:59, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Thank youEdit

Hi, Ferdinando, Thank you for your concern regarding the earthquake in Indonesia. Currently the team members are living far from the earthquake location. Thus, none of us are in severe danger. But we are following the news closely. Will give update to the bidding page shortly. Thanks again. Bennylin 14:31, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Fundraising translation feedbackEdit

Hey Ferdinando Scala, I have a bit of a request to ask from you. We pulled down our banners nearly a fortnight ago for what was a highly successful international fundraiser and brought the curtain down on last years fundraiser. This week however we will be changing payment processors and during the testing of the new system it would be useful to use the time productively on on testing banner text.

To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to help us improve our italian text using This Link

Simply follow the simple instructions on that page and if you have any questions feel free to contact me on my talk page.


We are going to run the test on tuesday so if you dont see this message till 24 hours after it was sent you can ignore me :) Many Thanks though.

Jseddon (WMF) (talk) 18:01, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Hey, thank you so much for your help. Its the right page. Its the page used from last year but its the one that has all of the translations and text so I decided to simply continue to use it for this short systems testing we need to run this week. Jseddon (WMF) (talk) 18:43, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Ci pensi tu quindi a dare una riguardata? Ciao --Cotton (talk) 18:42, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Ha mandato lo stesso a me. La versione 2013 però non pare esistere tout court per cui io penso che voglia che si guardi quello che salta fuori cliccando su translate extension che in effetti ha qualche punto che mi lascia perplesso. --Cotton (talk) 18:49, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Traduzione candidatureEdit

Ciao Ferdinando, Volevo tradurre in italiano le ultime due candidature al board e la prima all'FDC ma non riesco a far comparire quei testi nel translation tool che si ferma allo statement di Phoebe. Hai idea di come si debba fare? --Cotton (talk) 20:22, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

Non preoccuparti: qualcuno ha sistemato ormai un po' di giorni fa, il problema ora sono io che non ho più tempo di completare la traduzione di tutti gli statement come mi proponevo. Ti suggerisco per tenere d'occhio questa talk di abilitare con le preferenze l'invio automatico di una mail quando qualcuno la modifica. Io ho fatto così x tutte le wiki che frequento meno. Ciao --Cotton (talk) 22:42, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
