Regarding Sitenotice on this wiki[ᱯᱷᱮᱰᱟᱛ ᱥᱟᱯᱲᱟᱣ]
Dear administrators of this wiki, Now there are currently 5 notices on the sitenotice of this Wikipedia. It makes the user experience bad when such notices are put on the page. I would like you to install Advance site notice on this Wiki to make the experience more better. You can see it's example on Marathi wikisource --Tiven2240 (ᱜᱟᱞᱢᱟᱨᱟᱣ) ᱐᱓:᱑᱒, ᱔ ᱱᱚᱵᱷᱮᱢᱵᱚᱨ ᱒᱐᱑᱙ (UTC)
- @Tiven2240 thanks for your valuable suggestion, we have no problem if you can install Advance site notice in our wiki. R Ashwani Banjan Murmu (ᱜᱟᱞᱢᱟᱨᱟᱣ) ᱐᱗:᱔᱐, ᱔ ᱱᱚᱵᱷᱮᱢᱵᱚᱨ ᱒᱐᱑᱙ (UTC)
- R Ashwani Banjan Murmu: I am not an Administrator on this Wikipedia. There needs to be a Administrator whom I can assist to install this advance feature on this Wiki. I was a admin/technical admin on Marathi wikisource at that time to install that on that wiki. If u can arrange an administrator I can guide how to do the same. Thank you--Tiven2240 (ᱜᱟᱞᱢᱟᱨᱟᱣ) ᱐᱙:᱓᱐, ᱔ ᱱᱚᱵᱷᱮᱢᱵᱚᱨ ᱒᱐᱑᱙ (UTC)
- Tiven2240: Yes, I am the Administrator it will be nice if you can assist me for this , can I have your mail ID.R Ashwani Banjan Murmu (ᱜᱟᱞᱢᱟᱨᱟᱣ) ᱐᱔:᱓᱐, ᱕ ᱱᱚᱵᱷᱮᱢᱵᱚᱨ ᱒᱐᱑᱙ (UTC)
Content translation[ᱯᱷᱮᱰᱟᱛ ᱥᱟᱯᱲᱟᱣ]
Hello. Sorry for writing in English. It would be great if Mediawiki's content translation tool is available for Santali language. The project page for this feature is https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Content_translation. Regards and Thanks. RIT RAJARSHI (ᱜᱟᱞᱢᱟᱨᱟᱣ) ᱒᱒:᱓᱑, ᱑᱒ ᱥᱮᱯᱴᱮᱢᱵᱚᱨ ᱒᱐᱒᱐ (UTC)
Update: discussed here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:Vtuwo2ur6kx39v9u RIT RAJARSHI (ᱜᱟᱞᱢᱟᱨᱟᱣ) ᱒᱒:᱓᱗, ᱑᱒ ᱥᱮᱯᱴᱮᱢᱵᱚᱨ ᱒᱐᱒᱐ (UTC)
Ordered lists[ᱯᱷᱮᱰᱟᱛ ᱥᱟᱯᱲᱟᱣ]
Ordered lists in Santali are currently shown with Western numbers. Here's a list:
It is currently shown like this:
Should it be shown with Ol Chiki digits? It will look like this:
(It is also possible to put a different character after the number instead of '.', or no character at all.)
Hii ::Amire80:, it will be good if it will look like following order list, and it will have no significant difference whether we put '.' or not but all are following using '.' after every digit.
This is now done. Please test it and let me know if it works.
Note: For technical reasons, it can only work on the Firefox browser, and not on Chrome, Safari, Opera, or the Android browser. I am looking for a way to make it work everywhere. --ᱟᱢᱤᱨ ᱮ ᱟᱦᱟᱨᱳᱱᱤ (ᱜᱟᱞᱢᱟᱨᱟᱣ) ᱐᱗:᱑᱒, ᱑᱖ ᱥᱮᱯᱴᱮᱢᱵᱚᱨ ᱒᱐᱒᱐ (UTC)
Yes. Amire80: it is working and really awesome. Thank you form the santali wikimedia user group.
New Beta Feature next week[ᱯᱷᱮᱰᱟᱛ ᱥᱟᱯᱲᱟᱣ]
Please help translate to your language.
The Editing team is working on mw:Talk pages project/replying. The Reply tool is one result of the big mw:Talk pages consultation 2019. Editing is planning to offer the Reply tool to your community as a Beta Feature soon, probably on Wednesday, 14 October. The Reply tool has been used to make more than 25,000 comments at about 20 wikis so far.
The Editing team is particularly interested in learning how well this works for you, especially if you find font problems.
Here's what you need to know:
- Using the Reply tool is optional. The Beta Feature will be turned off. If you want to try it, you will need to go to Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-betafeatures and turn it on next Wednesday (or maybe Thursday).
- There are a few things that you might want to check.
- Check mw:Help:DiscussionTools/Why can't I reply to this comment? for information about "unsigned" templates and other information.
- Some languages use a particular style for signatures. For example, Japanese does not add a space between the comment and the signature. I don't think that's the case here, but if I've guessed wrong, then you can define the signature format for all users at MediaWiki:Discussiontools-signature-prefix.
- Missing or wrong translations can be fixed at Translatewiki.net.
- If you have questions or encounter problems, please leave a note at mw:Talk:Talk pages project/replying. That's the fastest way to reach the devs.
- The Beta Feature is available now in Special:Preferences. Whatamidoing (WMF) (ᱜᱟᱞᱢᱟᱨᱟᱣ) ᱑᱖:᱑᱑, ᱑᱔ ᱚᱠᱴᱚᱵᱚᱨ ᱒᱐᱒᱐ (UTC)

To help us structure the workshop, we would like understand the needs of the community in this regard. Please let us know any of
- a) repetitive/mundane tasks that you generally do, especially for maintenance
- b) tasks you think can be automated on your wiki.
Please let us your inputs on workshops talk page, before 7 February 2021. You can also let me know your inputs by emailing me or pinging me here in this section. Please note that you do not need to have any programming knowledge for this workshop or to give input. Regards, KCVelaga ᱑᱓:᱔᱕, ᱒᱘ ᱡᱟᱱᱩᱣᱟᱨᱤ ᱒᱐᱒᱑ (UTC)

Call for feedback: WMF Community Board seats & Office hours tomorrow[ᱯᱷᱮᱰᱟᱛ ᱥᱟᱯᱲᱟᱣ]
(sorry for posting in English)
The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is organizing a call for feedback about community selection processes between February 1 and March 14. Below you will find the problem statement and various ideas from the Board to address it. We are offering multiple channels for questions and feedback. With the help of a team of community facilitators, we are organizing multiple conversations with multiple groups in multiple languages.
During this call for feedback we publish weekly reports and we draft the final report that will be delivered to the Board. With the help of this report, the Board will approve the next steps to organize the selection of six community seats in the upcoming months. Three of these seats are due for renewal and three are new, recently approved.
Participate in this call for feedback and help us form a more diverse and better performing Board of Trustees!
Problems: While the Wikimedia Foundation and the movement have grown about five times in the past ten years, the Board’s structure and processes have remained basically the same. As the Board is designed today, we have a problem of capacity, performance, and lack of representation of the movement’s diversity. This problem was identified in the Board’s 2019 governance review, along with recommendations for how to address it.
To solve the problem of capacity, we have agreed to increase the Board size to a maximum of 16 trustees (it was 10). Regarding performance and diversity, we have approved criteria to evaluate new Board candidates. What is missing is a process to promote community candidates that represent the diversity of our movement and have the skills and experience to perform well on the Board of a complex global organization.
Our current processes to select individual volunteer and affiliate seats have some limitations. Direct elections tend to favor candidates from the leading language communities, regardless of how relevant their skills and experience might be in serving as a Board member, or contributing to the ability of the Board to perform its specific responsibilities. It is also a fact that the current processes have favored volunteers from North America and Western Europe. Meanwhile, our movement has grown larger and more complex, our technical and strategic needs have increased, and we have new and more difficult policy challenges around the globe. As well, our Movement Strategy recommendations urge us to increase our diversity and promote perspectives from other regions and other social backgrounds.
In the upcoming months, we need to renew three community seats and appoint three more community members in the new seats. What process can we all design to promote and choose candidates that represent our movement and are prepared with the experience, skills, and insight to perform as trustees?
Ideas: The Board has discussed several ideas to overcome the problems mentioned above. Some of these ideas could be taken and combined, and some discarded. Other ideas coming from the call for feedback could be considered as well. The ideas are:
- Ranked voting system. Complete the move to a single transferable vote system, already used to appoint affiliate-selected seats, which is designed to best capture voters’ preferences.
- Quotas. Explore the possibility of introducing quotas to ensure certain types of diversity in the Board (details about these quotas to be discussed in this call for feedback).
- Call for types of skills and experiences. When the Board makes a new call for candidates, they would specify types of skills and experiences especially sought.
- Vetting of candidates. Potential candidates would be assessed using the Trustee Evaluation Form and would be confirmed or not as eligible candidates.
- Board-delegated selection committee. The community would nominate candidates that this committee would assess and rank using the Trustee Evaluation Form. This committee would have community elected members and Board appointed members.
- Community-elected selection committee. The community would directly elect the committee members. The committee would assess and rank candidates using the Trustee Evaluation Form.
- Election of confirmed candidates. The community would vote for community nominated candidates that have been assessed and ranked using the Trustee Evaluation Form. The Board would appoint the most voted candidates.
- Direct appointment of confirmed candidates. After the selection committee produces a ranked list of community nominated candidates, the Board would appoint the top-ranked candidates directly.
Call for feedback: The call for feedback runs from February 1 until the end of March 14. We are looking for a broad representation of opinions. We are interested in the reasoning and the feelings behind your opinions. In a conversation like this one, details are important. We want to support good conversations where everyone can share and learn from others. We want to hear from those who understand Wikimedia governance well and are already active in movement conversations. We also want to hear from people who do not usually contribute to discussions. Especially those who are active in their own roles, topics, languages or regions, but usually not in, say, a call for feedback on Meta.
You can participate by joining the Telegram chat group, and giving feedback on any of the talk pages on Meta-Wiki. We are welcoming the organisation of conversations in any language and in any channel. If you want us to organize a conversation or a meeting for your wiki project or your affiliate, please write to me. I will also reach out to communities and affiliates to soon have focused group discussions.
An office hour is also happening tomorrow at 12 pm (UTC) to discuss this topic. Access link will be available 15 minutes before the scheduled time (please watch the office hour page for the link, and I will also share on mailing lists). In case you are not able to make it, please don't worry, there will be more discussions and meetings in the next few weeks.
