Fotografia amb drone de Versalles

"Quan veus els jardins des de dalt... realment et revela la complexitat i els detalls d'aquesta obra." Video by Victor Grigas and Reetta Kemppi, freely licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0.

Lionel Allorge, a photographer and programmer from France, was frustrated by the difficult process of getting permission to use photos he had found online. That’s why he began to release his own photography under free licenses to Wikimedia Commons. One of his favorite projects involved taking photographs of the Palace of Versailles from the air. Aerial photographs of the palace exist, but those photos were not free to use.

Metes dels projectes Wikimedia: la Viquipèdia en suec arriba als 2 milions

Els projectes Wikimedia que han registrat metes més grans el setembre inclouen:

  • La Viquipèdia en suec va arribar als 2 milions d'articles el 5 de setembre. L'article número 2.000.000 va ser creat per un bot. Jan Ainali, de Wikimedia Sverige, diu que la comunitat és conscient del rol que desenvolupen els bots per assolir aquesta meta, però que s'ha de celebrar.
  • La Viquipèdia en urdú va arribar als 80.000 articles el 9 de setembre.
  • El Viccionari en armeni va arribar a les 90.000 entrades el 19 de setembre.
  • La Viquipèdia en swahili va arribar als 30.000 articles el 22 de setembre.

Què he après: Programa d'Educació de la Viquipèdia a l'Argentina

Delia Vazquez, a teacher trainer and a high school teacher, always considered that she was lacking a theoretical foundation that allowed her to defend and argue for Wikipedia’s use in the classroom—something that would allow her to “move away from the prejudices that are common among my colleagues”. With this feedback in mind, and an idea of the audience we wanted to address, an education program was designed for Wikimedia Argentina. It aimed to change the perceptions of Wikipedia in educational contexts, and emphasize the key role open culture has in education.

Every month, we will share a new story for shared learning from a different community. If you want to feature a lesson you learned, reach out!.

In September 2015, the sixth edition of Wiki Loves Monuments, the largest photography competition in the world, was held. Thousands of Wikipedia readers and contributors from more than 30 countries around the globe took part in the contest, hoping to document their local heritage, contribute to Wikipedia, and perhaps win a little prize.

Reimaginant les beques de la Fundació Wikimedia

The Wikimedia Community Resources team recently completed a successful consultation to change the structure of WMF grants. Many important findings surfaced through the last month, such as a desire for small, accessible grants, a need to simplify grant types, and requests for additional support during grant application and reporting. The feedback provided by participants has produced many substantive improvements in the reimagined structure for WMF grant programs.

El nombre d'editors actius de la Viquipèdia s'ha estabilitzat—indagueu en les dades amb nosaltres

Very active editor numbers (>100 edits per month) since the English Wikipedia’s launch in 2001. The thick red line symbolises a five-month moving average. Graph by Joe Sutherland, in the public domain.

The English Wikipedia’s population of very active editors—registered contributors with more than 100 edits per month—appears to have stabilized after a period of decline. We’re seeing some of the same trends globally on other language Wikipedias.

We have released a new dataset (documentation) to invite community members and researchers to join us in analyzing this trend. Some potential directions of investigation include:

  • Existing editors could be editing more
  • Fewer editors could be leaving
  • More editors could be coming back
  • The community could be reaching its new carrying capacity
  • Faster editing as a result of December 2014’s performance improvements (“How we made editing Wikipedia twice as fast“) could be enabling more edits
  • A temporary resurgence

Hauria de pagar per un article de la Viquipèdia?

Existeixen unes normes específiques sobre quan es pot editar a la Viquipèdia en anglès per diners. Image by Erik Zachte, freely licensed under CC-by-3.0.

This question and answer-style piece details what individuals can and should know about paid editing on Wikipedia. The Wikimedia Foundation's Terms of Use, covering Wikipedia and all other projects supported by the Foundation, require that all paid editing be disclosed, and you should never hire an undisclosed paid editor. It may be tempting to want a Wikipedia article about you or your company, but Wikipedia is first and foremost an encyclopedia. Not every person or business in the world will or should appear in an encyclopedia.

Aquestes pautes s'apliquen només a la Viquipèdia en anglès i no reflecteixen necessàriament l'opinió de la Fundació.
