Καλώς ήλθατε στο περίπτερο επισκεπτών

To Περίπτερο επισκεπτών είναι ο χώρος για να κάνετε ερωτήσεις όταν είστε σε σύγχυση, χαμένος, φοβισμένος, κουρασμένος, ενοχλημένος, σκεπτικός, ή πρόθυμος να βοηθήσετε. Παρακαλούμε να ρίξετε μια ματιά στο FAQ και στη σελίδα Βοήθεια πριν να κάνετε οποιαδήποτε ερώτηση, καθώς αυτό μπορεί να εξοικονομήσει το δικό σας χρόνο και των άλλων. (~~~~)

Παρακαλούμε προσθέστε νέες ερωτήσεις στο κάτω μέρος της σελίδας και υπογράψτε τις αναρτήσεις σας με την προσθήκη τεσσάρων περισπωμένων (~~~~) στο τέλος του κειμένου, σε άλλη περίπτωση Κάντε ένα βήμα εμπρός!

  • Αν έχετε μια ερώτηση η πρόταση για έναν συγκεκριμένο οδηγό, χρησιμοποιήστε τη σελίδα συζήτησης του άρθρου για να διατηρήσετε τη συζήτηση σε συνάφεια με αυτό το άρθρο.
  • Αν έχετε κάποιο πρόβλημα που νομίζετε ότι έχει να κάνει με το λογισμικό MediaWiki, παρακαλούμε να το αναφέρετε στο Bugzilla αντί για εδώ.
  • Θέματα που σχετίζονται με περισσότερες από μια γλωσσικές εκδόσεις του Wikivoyage συζητιούνται στο Wikivoyage Lounge στο Meta.

Καθαρίστε το Περίπτερο

Το να κρατάμε το Περίπτερο καθαρό είναι μια ομαδική προσπάθεια. Αν έχουμε πάρα πολλές συζητήσεις σε αυτή τη σελίδα, θα καταστεί πολύ θορυβώδης και δύσκολη στην ανάγνωση. Αν δείτε μια παλιά συζήτηση (π.χ. τριών μηνών με βάση το τελευταίο σχόλιο σε αυτή τη συζήτηση) και αυτή θα μπορούσε ή θα έπρεπε να μετακινηθεί σε μια σελίδα συζήτησης, τότε παρακαλούμε να το κάνετε, και να αφήσετε μια σημείωση ότι έχει μετακινηθεί από το Περίπτερο επισκεπτών.

  • Μια ερώτηση σχετικά με ένα άρθρο για έναν προορισμό θα έπρεπε να μετακινηθεί στη σελίδα συζήτησης του άρθρου
  • Μια συζήτηση σχετικά με μια πολιτική ή το θέμα μια εξερεύνησης μπορεί να μετακινηθεί στη σελίδα συζήτησης της πολιτικής ή της εξερεύνησης
  • Μια απλή ερώτηση που υποβλήθηκε από έναν χρήστη μπορεί να μετακινηθεί στη σελίδα συζήτησης του χρήστη, αλλά αναρωτηθείτε εάν η τεκμηρίωση χρειάζεται μια γρήγορη ενημέρωση προκειμένου η απάντηση να γίνει πιο σαφής για την ίδια ερώτηση από τον επόμενο χρήστη.
  • Ένας σύνδεσμος σε μια συζήτηση που οδηγεί αλλού, όπως μια σημείωση για αξιόλογο άρθρο ή ένα αίτημα για σχόλια σε άλλη σελίδα συζήτησης, μπορεί να μετακινηθεί όταν περάσουν δύο μήνες. Οποιαδήποτε συζήτηση που προκύπτει στο Περίπτερο μπορεί να μετακινηθεί εκεί που η κύρια συζήτηση επί του θέματος έλαβε μέρος.
Όποιες συζητήσεις δεν εντάσσονται στις παραπάνω κατηγορίες , και δεν έχουν κάποια ιδιαίτερη σημασία για τις επόμενες γενιές χρηστών, θα πρέπει να αρχειοθετούνται στο Βικιταξίδια:Περίπτερο επισκεπτών/Αρχεία και να μετακινούνται από εδώ. Αν δεν είστε σίγουρος για το που θα βάλετε μια συζήτηση, αφήστε το καλύτερα — και περιορίστε τις προσπάθειές σας σε αυτές τις συζητήσεις που γνωρίζετε που να μετακινήσετε.

Ενεργοποίηση ενός χρήσιμου χαρακτηριστικού για τους χρήστες προτύπων[επεξεργασία]

Χαίρετε,

Η ομάδα που εργάζεται πάνω στα ΣτυλΠροτύπων (TemplateStyles) στο Ίδρυμα Wikimedia θα ήθελε να ενεργοποιήσει το ΣτυλΠροτύπων σε αυτό το wiki.

Το ΣτυλΠροτύπων είναι ένα χαρακτηριστικό που επιτρέπει σε μη διαχειριστές να γράφουν και να διαχειρίζονται στυλ CSS για πρότυπα. Επιτρέπει στους χρήστες που επεξεργάζονται τα πρότυπα να διαχωρίσουν το περιεχόμενο από την παρουσίαση. Είναι μια καλή πρακτική στο διαδίκτυο που διευκολύνει τη διαχείριση της διάταξης των προτύπων. Εάν δεν επεξεργάζεστε πρότυπα, αυτό δεν θα έχει καμία επίδραση στις επεξεργασίες σας.

Το ΣτυλΠροτύπων είναι χρήσιμο για τους εξής λόγους.

  • Καθιστά δυνατό για τα πρότυπα να λειτουργούν καλύτερα στο κινητό.
  • Μειώνει τη σύγχυση σχετικά με το πού θα εφαρμοστούν οι κανόνες CSS.
  • Η επεξεργασία του CSS περιορίζεται επί του παρόντος σε διαχειριστές, γεγονός που αποτελεί σημαντικό εμπόδιο στη συμμετοχή.
  • Όλες οι σελίδες στυλ πρέπει να φορτώνονται σε όλες τις σελίδες (είτε τις χρησιμοποιούν είτε όχι), γεγονός που καταστρέφει το εύρος ζώνης και καθιστά τους κανόνες στυλ αντιμετώπισης σφαλμάτων πιο δύσκολους.

Μπορείτε να μάθετε περισσότερα σχετικά με το ΣτυλΠροτύπων στο MediaWiki.org. Υπάρχει επίσης $technical σχετική τεχνική τεκμηρίωση.

Αυτό είναι ένα προαιρετικό χαρακτηριστικό και κανείς δεν είναι υποχρεωμένος να το χρησιμοποιήσει, αλλά οι χρήστες προτύπων ενθαρρύνονται να το πράξουν! Συζητήστε και ενημερώστε μας αν υπάρχουν κάποιες ανησυχίες. Εάν δεν υπάρχουν προβλήματα, θα προχωρήσουμε στην ενεργοποίηση του χαρακτηριστικού στις 28 Μαρτίου.

RelatedSites[επεξεργασία]

Χαίρετε,

Η ομάδα Community Tech του ιδρύματος Wikimedia σκοπεύει να καταργήσει την επέκταση του RelatedSites από αυτό το wiki. Το RelatedSites δημιουργήθηκε για τα Βικιταξίδια/Wikitravel πριν από πολλά χρόνια ως ένας τρόπος σύνδεσής τους με άλλα wikis που εμφανίζονται στην πλαϊνή γραμμή ως "Σχετικοί ιστότοποι". Αυτή η επέκταση επαναλαμβάνει το έργο των Βικιδεδομένων "Σε άλλα εγχειρήματα" των Βικιδεδομένων που βλέπετε επίσης στην πλαϊνή γραμμή. Δεδομένου ότι το LinkedSites χρησιμοποιείται μόνο από τα Βικιταξίδια και δεν υποστηρίζεται περαιτέρω, είναι απαραίτητο να καταργηθεί η παλιά λειτουργία των RelatedSites προτού το λογισμικό σπάσει. Αυτό το wiki έχει πάνω από πεντακόσιες σελίδες που χρησιμοποιούν το RelatedSites και η ομάδα Community Tech είναι διατεθειμένη να βοηθήσει στην αφαιρέση των σχετικών συνδέσμων προτού αφαιρέσει πλήρως την επέκταση.

Υπάρχουν δύο ερωτήσεις: είναι η κοινότητα σύμφωνη με την κατάργηση της επέκτασης RelatedSites και θα μπορούσε η κοινότητα να βοηθήσει να καταργηθούν οι σύνδεσμοι;

Re-thinking where to put the focus on - the collaborative creation of the "List of articles every Wikivoyage should have" on Meta[επεξεργασία]

One of the issues with any wiki site is that unless the editor community agrees upon where it is mostly important to put most efforts, usually everyone just improves random articles without knowing what to prioritize... this becomes a bigger issue with the smaller communities where if there are only two or three active editors... they would usually create mostly random stubs that aren’t of much interest to their readers, just because most people wouldn’t know on the top of the head what travel destinations are of most interest to people.

In order to tackle this issue, some wiki sites develop a vital/core article list based on the consensus in that community, which could be used both as a way to focus most efforts where they are most needed (for example, by encouarging the editors to make as many Guide articles and Star articles from all the articles on the core articles list) but also as a way to encourage the other parallel editions of that wiki to create the articles deemed to be the most vital articles as well.

I especially like Wikipedia’s vital articles list... but also Meta’s List of articles every Wikipedia should have.

I think that the existence of such a list, that might even be of use here at the Greek Wikivoyage, would be especially important as it would inspire all the smaller editions of Wikivoyage to make sure that the articles which are of the most interest to their readers are the ones in which most efforts are directed towards + that a priority would be given to improving the quality of the most prominent and sought after articles.

As such I decided to plunge forward and create a draft for this list at Meta. It currently includes exactly 1,000 articles. The list isn't finished! Please help me improve the list by going over it, making note of the articles you think are missing from it, and suggesting them at the discussion page of that page at meta. ויקיג'אנקי (συζήτηση) 16:27, 15 Ιουνίου 2019 (EEST)Απάντηση[απάντηση]

Making the Content Translation Tool available for Wikivoyage[επεξεργασία]

I don't know if any of you have ever tried Wikipedia's Content translation Tool, but i'll just say that this is a very strong tool that has helped the Wikipedia community translate A LOT of articles between the various Wikipedia editions (mostly translations of articles from the English Wikipedia to the smaller Wikipedia editions).

So far this tool is only used in Wikipedia.

As part of the current Community Wishlist Survey, a suggestion has been brought forward to make this tool available for all Wikivoyage editions as well:

meta:Community_Wishlist_Survey_2020/Wikivoyage/ContentTranslation_work_for_Wikivoyage#Voting

Hello. Apologies if you are not reading this message in your native language. Please help translate to your language if necessary. Σας ευχαριστούμε!

There are a lot of conversations happening about the future of our movement names. We hope that you are part of these discussions and that your community is represented.

Since 16 June, the Foundation Brand Team has been running a survey in 7 languages about 3 naming options. There are also community members sharing concerns about renaming in a Community Open Letter.

Our goal in this call for feedback is to hear from across the community, so we encourage you to participate in the survey, the open letter, or both. The survey will go through 7 July in all timezones. Input from the survey and discussions will be analyzed and published on Meta-Wiki.

Thanks for thinking about the future of the movement, --The Brand Project team, 23:33, 2 Ιουλίου 2020 (EEST)

Universal Code of Conduct – 2021 consultations[επεξεργασία]

Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2[επεξεργασία]

Please help translate to your language

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a universal baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire Wikimedia movement and all its projects. The project is currently in Phase 2, outlining clear enforcement pathways. You can read more about the whole project on its project page.

Drafting Committee: Call for applications[επεξεργασία]

The Wikimedia Foundation is recruiting volunteers to join a committee to draft how to make the code enforceable. Volunteers on the committee will commit between 2 and 6 hours per week from late April through July and again in October and November. It is important that the committee be diverse and inclusive, and have a range of experiences, including both experienced users and newcomers, and those who have received or responded to, as well as those who have been falsely accused of harassment.

To apply and learn more about the process, see Universal Code of Conduct/Drafting committee.

2021 community consultations: Notice and call for volunteers / translators[επεξεργασία]

From 5 April – 5 May 2021 there will be conversations on many Wikimedia projects about how to enforce the UCoC. We are looking for volunteers to translate key material, as well as to help host consultations on their own languages or projects using suggested key questions. If you are interested in volunteering for either of these roles, please contact us in whatever language you are most comfortable.

To learn more about this work and other conversations taking place, see Universal Code of Conduct/2021 consultations.

Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election has come to an end[επεξεργασία]

Thank you for participating in the 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election! Voting closed August 31 at 23:59. The official data, including the four most voted candidates, will be announced as soon as the Elections Committee completes their review of the ballots. The official announcement of the new trustees appointed will happen later, once the selected candidates have been confirmed by the Board.

6,946 community members from 216 wiki projects have voted. This makes 10.2% global participation, 1.1% higher than in the last Board elections. In 2017, 5167 people from 202 wiki projects cast their vote. A full analysis is planned to be published in a few days when the confirmed results are announced. In the meantime, you can check the data produced during the election.

Diversity was an important goal with these elections. Messages about the Board election were translated into 61 languages. This outreach worked well. There were 70 communities with eligible voters voting in this election for the first time. With your help, next year’s Board of Trustees election will be even better.

Upcoming Call for Feedback about the Board of Trustees elections[επεξεργασία]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

The Board of Trustees is preparing a call for feedback about the upcoming Board Elections, from January 7 - February 10, 2022.

While details will be finalized the week before the call, we have confirmed at least two questions that will be asked during this call for feedback:

  • What is the best way to ensure fair representation of emerging communities among the Board?
  • What involvement should candidates have during the election?

While additional questions may be added, the Movement Strategy and Governance team wants to provide time for community members and affiliates to consider and prepare ideas on the confirmed questions before the call opens. We apologize for not having a complete list of questions at this time. The list of questions should only grow by one or two questions. The intention is to not overwhelm the community with requests, but provide notice and welcome feedback on these important questions.

Do you want to help organize local conversation during this Call?

Contact the Movement Strategy and Governance team on Meta, on Telegram, or via email at msg(_AT_)wikimedia.org.

Reach out if you have any questions or concerns. The Movement Strategy and Governance team will be minimally staffed until January 3. Please excuse any delayed response during this time. We also recognize some community members and affiliates are offline during the December holidays. We apologize if our message has reached you while you are on holiday.

With this Call for Feedback, the Movement Strategy and Governance team is taking a different approach. This approach incorporates community feedback from 2021.

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hello everyone,

A vote in SecurePoll from 7 to 21 March 2022 is scheduled as part of the ratification process for the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement guidelines. Eligible voters are invited to answer a poll question and share comments. Read voter information and eligibility details. During the poll, voters will be asked if they support the enforcement of the Universal Code of Conduct based on the proposed guidelines.

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire movement. The revised enforcement guidelines were published 24 January 2022 as a proposed way to apply the policy across the movement. A Wikimedia Foundation Board statement calls for a ratification process where eligible voters will have an opportunity to support or oppose the adoption of the UCoC Enforcement guidelines in a vote. Wikimedians are invited to translate and share important information. For more information about the UCoC, please see the project page and frequently asked questions on Meta-wiki.

There are events scheduled to learn more and discuss:

  • A community panel recorded on 18 February 2022 shares perspectives from small- and medium-sized community participants.
  • The Movement Strategy and Governance (MSG) team is hosting Conversation Hours on 4 March 2022 at 15:00 UTC. Please sign-up to interact with the project team and the drafting committee about the updated enforcement guidelines and the ratification process.

Hello!

The Movement Strategy and Governance team of the Wikimedia Foundation would like to invite you to the next event about "Regional and Thematic Hubs". The Wikimedia Movement is in the process of understanding what Regional and Thematic Hubs should be. Our workshop in November was a good start (read the report), but we're not finished yet.

Over the last weeks we conducted about 16 interviews with groups working on establishing a Hub in their context (see Hubs Dialogue). These interviews informed a report that will serve as a foundation for discussion on March 12. The report is planned to be published on March 9.

The event will take place on March 12, 13:00 to 16:00 UTC on Zoom. Interpretation will be provided in French, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, and Portuguese. Registration is open, and will close on March 10. Anyone interested in the topic is invited to join us. More information on the event on Meta-wiki.

Revisions to the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement Guidelines[επεξεργασία]

Hello all,

We'd like to provide an update on the work on the Enforcement Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct. After the conclusion of the community vote on the guidelines in March, the Community Affairs committee (CAC) of the Board asked that several areas of the guidelines be reviewed for improvements before the Board does its final review. These areas were identified based on community discussions and comments provided during the vote. The CAC also requested review of the controversial Note in 3.1 of the UCoC itself.

Once more, a big thank you to all who voted, especially to all who left constructive feedback and comments! The project team is working with the Board to establish a timeline for this work, and will communicate this next month.

Members of the two prior UCoC Drafting Committees have generously offered their time to help shape improvements to the Guidelines. You can read more about them and their work here, as well as read summaries of their weekly meetings in 2022.

Wikimedians have provided many valuable comments together with the vote and in other conversations. Given the size and diversity of the Wikimedia community, there are even more voices out there who can give ideas on how to improve the enforcement guidelines and add even more valuable ideas to the process. To help the Revisions committee identify improvements, input on several questions for the committee’s review is requested. Visit the Meta-wiki pages (Enforcement Guidelines revision discussions, Policy text revision discussions) to get your ideas to the Committee - it is very important that viewpoints are heard from different communities before the Committee begins drafting revision proposals.

On behalf of the UCoC project team

Propose statements for the 2022 Election Compass[επεξεργασία]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hi all,

Community members in the 2022 Board of Trustees election are invited to propose statements to use in the Election Compass.

An Election Compass is a tool to help voters select the candidates that best align with their beliefs and views. The community members will propose statements for the candidates to answer using a Lickert scale (agree/neutral/disagree). The candidates’ answers to the statements will be loaded into the Election Compass tool. Voters will use the tool by entering in their answer to the statements (agree/disagree/neutral). The results will show the candidates that best align with the voter’s beliefs and views.

Here is the timeline for the Election Compass
  • July 8 - 20: Community members propose statements for the Election Compass
  • July 21 - 22: Elections Committee reviews statements for clarity and removes off-topic statements
  • July 23 - August 1: Volunteers vote on the statements
  • August 2 - 4: Elections Committee selects the top 15 statements
  • August 5 - 12: candidates align themselves with the statements
  • August 15: The Election Compass opens for voters to use to help guide their voting decision

The Elections Committee will select the top 15 statements at the beginning of August. The Elections Committee will oversee the process, supported by the Movement Strategy and Governance team. MSG will check that the questions are clear, there are no duplicates, no typos, and so on.

Best,

Movement Strategy and Governance

Hello everyone,

The Movement Strategy Forum (MS Forum) is a multilingual collaborative space for all conversations about Movement Strategy implementation.

We are inviting all Movement participants to collaborate on the MS Forum. The goal of the forum is to build community collaboration, using an inclusive multilingual platform.

The Movement Strategy is a collaborative effort to imagine and build the future of the Wikimedia Movement. Anyone can contribute to the Movement Strategy, from a comment to a full-time project.

The Vector 2022 skin as the default in two weeks?[επεξεργασία]

The slides for our presentation at Wikimania 2022

Hello. I'm writing on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Web team. In two weeks, we would like to make the Vector 2022 skin the default on this wiki.

We have been working on it for the past three years. So far, it has been the default on more than 30 wikis, including sister projects, all accounting for more than 1 billion pageviews per month. On average 87% of active logged-in users of those wikis use Vector 2022.

It would become the default for all logged-out users, and also all logged-in users who currently use Vector legacy. Logged-in users can at any time switch to any other skins. No changes are expected for users of these skins.

About the skin[επεξεργασία]

[Why is a change necessary] The current default skin meets the needs of the readers and editors as these were 13 years ago. Since then, new users have begun using Wikimedia projects. The old Vector doesn't meet their needs.

[Objective] The objective for the new skin is to make the interface more welcoming and comfortable for readers and useful for advanced users. It draws inspiration from previous requests, the Community Wishlist Surveys, and gadgets and scripts. The work helped our code follow the standards and improve all other skins. We reduced PHP code in Wikimedia deployed skins by 75%. The project has also focused on making it easier to support gadgets and use APIs.

[Changes and test results] The skin introduces a series of changes that improve readability and usability. The new skin does not remove any functionality currently available on the Vector skin.

  • The sticky header makes it easier to find tools that editors use often. It decreases scrolling to the top of the page by 16%.
  • The new table of contents makes it easier to navigate to different sections. Readers and editors jumped to different sections of the page 50% more than with the old table of contents. It also looks a bit different on talk pages.
  • The new search bar is easier to find and makes it easier to find the correct search result from the list. This increased the amount of searches started by 30% on the wikis we tested on.
  • The skin does not negatively affect pageviews, edit rates, or account creation. There is evidence of increases in pageviews and account creation across partner communities.

[Try it out] Try out the new skin by going to the appearance tab in your preferences and selecting Vector 2022 from the list of skins.

How can editors change and customize this skin?[επεξεργασία]

It's possible to configure and personalize our changes. We support volunteers who create new gadgets and user scripts. Check out our repository for a list of currently available customizations, or add your own.

Our plan[επεξεργασία]

If no large concerns are raised, we plan on deploying in the week of October 3, 2022. If your community would like to request more time to discuss the changes, hit the button and write to us. We can adjust the calendar.

If you'd like ask our team anything, if you have questions, concerns, or additional thoughts, please ping me here or write on the talk page of the project. We will gladly answer! Also, see our FAQ. Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 07:15, 22 Σεπτεμβρίου 2022 (EEST)Απάντηση[απάντηση]
