આવો આપણે જાણીએ કાર્યક્રમ, ભરુચ[ફેરફાર કરો]

કાર્યક્રમ દરમ્યાન જયમ પટેલ

આવો આપણે જાણીએ આ કાર્યક્રમ ભરુચ ખાતે આવેલા નર્મદાનગર કોમ્યુનિટી સાયન્સ સેન્ટરના ઉપક્રમે યોજાયેલા ભરુચ જિલ્લાઓની શાળાઓ માટેના વિજ્ઞાનમેળા દરમ્યાન કરવામાં આવ્યો હતો. એમાં ગુજરાતી વિકિપીડિયા તેમજ વિકિસ્ત્રોતનો લાભ કઈ રીતે મેળવી શકાય, હાલમાં કઈ કઈ માહિતીઓ/ પુસ્તકો/ રચનાઓ ઉપલબ્ધ છે, અહીં યોગદાન કઈ રીતે કરી શકાય, ગુજરાતી ભાષામાં કેવી રીતે લખી શકાય, વિકિ નીતિઓ શું છે, વગેરે બાબતોની સમજ લોકોને આપવામાં આવી હતી. આ ઉપરાંત જુદા જુદા લેખો લોકોને કોમ્પ્યુટર પર બતાવ્યા હતા. આ મેળો બે દિવસ ચાલ્યો હતો. ભરુચ રહેતા દેવેન્દ્રસિંહ ગોહિલ, સતિષ પટેલ તથા જયમપટેલ વિકિપીડિઅન તરીકે હાજર રહ્યા હતા.--સતિષ પટેલ (talk) ૨૧:૫૮, ૧૦ ફેબ્રુઆરી ૨૦૧૩ (IST)

શ્રી.સતિષભાઈ, દેવેન્દ્રભાઈ અને જયમ. આપનો હાર્દિક ધન્યવાદ. આમ જ, આપનાં કાર્યેથી પ્રેરણા પામી, અમ જેવા અન્ય સભ્યશ્રીઓ પણ ઉત્સાહ પામશે. વાહ !--અશોક મોઢવાડીયાચર્ચા/યોગદાન ૧૬:૫૯, ૧૧ ફેબ્રુઆરી ૨૦૧૩ (IST)

આવી જ રીતે આપણે પણ વિકિસ્રોતની વર્ષગાંઠ નિમિત્તે રૂપાયતન ખાતે આયોજન કરવાનું વિચાર્યું છે. હજુ સુધી તારીખ નક્કી નથી કરી. પરંતુ સૌ કોઇને અનુકુળ આવે તે તારીખ/સમયે આયોજન કરીશું.
દરેક શક્ય તક સમયે ગુજરાતી વિકિ માધ્યમોનો પ્રચાર થતો રહે તે ગુજરાતીઓ અને ગુજરાતી બન્ને માટે આવકારદાયક છે. તે સાથે જ જુદી જુદી દિશાઓમાં થતાં સ્વયંસેવી આ પ્રકારનાં કાર્યો - દરેકની પોતાની પ્રાથમિક વ્યાવસાયીક પ્રવ્રુત્તિ, નૅટવિશ્વ પર પોતાની આગવી પ્રવ્રુત્તિ- અને વિકિ કે (હવે નવો આદરાયેલો) વૅબ-ગુર્જરી જેવા પ્રયોગો અને પ્રવ્રુત્તિઓને સાંકળી લઇ, અસરકારક રીતે પ્રગતિ થતી રહે તે અંગે પણ સાથે સાથે વિચાર કરતા રહેવાનો સમય પણ્ પાકતો જાય છે. વિકિનાંમાધ્યમો પર કામ્ કરતાં લોકોની સંખ્યા વધી છે તેમ છતાં ગુણવતા જળવાઇ રહી છે, તે માટે સંચાલક મિત્રોની જહેમત અને કાળજીની પણ દાદ દેવી જ પડે. -- --Amvaishnav (talk) ૨૨:૪૦, ૧૧ ફેબ્રુઆરી ૨૦૧૩ (IST)

One year Gujarati Wikisource[ફેરફાર કરો]

Hello Wikisource editors,
congratulations, today it is now 1 year since the gu.wikisource.org subdomain was created. From the Wikimedia Incubator & Language Committee, we would like to get some feedback from newer wikis about their situation.

We prepared some questions about what we would like to know. Feel free to answer as many of them as you like.

  1. How has activity developed after the subdomain's creation? (in comparision with the situation on www.wikisource.org)
  2. Is it now easier to be found by new users?
  3. Would you have done something in a better/different way in hindsight?
  4. Is there anything where you say 'This should have been better during the testing phase (OldWikisource, Langcom)'?

Best regards, --MF-Warburg (talk) ૦૬:૪૮, ૨૮ માર્ચ ૨૦૧૩ (IST)

Thank you very much for your wishes,
  1. After getting the subdomain the activity ha become more speedy. It's like living in Rented home and living in owned home. One might not be too keen to decorate the rented house, but when one has his or her on houe he puts efoort with all its will. When we got sudomain the page count was around 1000+ after one year it is 2300+. It was during this year when we uploaded 25 books, that with all typing a there is no OCR for Gujarati Language.
  2. the new domain address is easier to found by new users.
  3. I dont think so
  4. no, it is good only.

Thanks for contacting, Regards. --Sushant savla (talk) ૦૭:૪૮, ૬ એપ્રિલ ૨૦૧૩ (IST)

તા.૩૧/૦૩/૨૦૧૩ના રોજ જુનાગઢ ખાતે આવેલા રૂપાયતનમાં વિકિસ્રોતની પ્રથમ વર્ષગાંઠની ઉજવણી કરવામાં આવી હતી. આ કાર્યક્રમ યોજવામાં જુનાગઢના સક્રીય મિત્રો અશોક મોઢવાડિયા, વ્યોમ મજમુદાર અને નીલેષભાઈ બંધીયાનો અથાગ પ્રયત્નો રહ્યાં હતાં. રૂપાયતનના સભાખંડમાં પ્રોજેક્ટર પર પાવર પોઈંટ પ્રેસેન્ટેશન દ્વારા શ્રોતાઓને વિકિસ્રોતનો ઈતિહાસ, વિકિસ્રોત અને અન્ય વિકિ પ્રકલ્પોની માહિતી આપવામાં આવી હતી. કાર્યક્રમા સંચાલન વ્યોમ મજમુદારે કર્યું હતું. પ્રાર્થના બાદ અતિથીઓએ પ્રાસંગિક વ્યાખ્યાન કર્યું. વિકિસ્રોતની વર્ષગાંઠની ઉજવણી કેક કાપી થઈ અને સૌએ ભેગા મળી કેક ખાધી હતી. ત્યારબાદ અતિથિ રાવલસાહેબ અને રૂપાયતનના મેનેજીંગ ટ્રસ્ટી, હેમંતભાઇએ પ્રવચન આપ્યું. તેઓએ આ કાર્યક્રમને આવકારતા કહ્યું કે રૂપાયતન આવા (સાહિત્યના) કાર્યક્રમને હંમેશા આવકારે છે, અને તેમાં રૂપાયતનનો તન, મન, અને ધનથી સહયોગ રહેશે. તેમણે યુવાનોને આવી નવી પ્રવૃતિ કરવા પ્રોત્સાહન આપ્યું. પોતાના વક્તવ્યમાં તેઓએ કહ્યું કે અમે તો પાનખર છીએ, પરંતુ આ નવી પેઢી વસંત છે. તે સાહિત્ય માટે કામ કરે છે, અને ટેક્નોલોજીનો ઉપયોગ કરીને સાહિત્યની સેવા કરે છે, એ જાણી ખુબ જ આનંદ થાય છે

ત્યારબાદ ધવલ વ્યાસએ વિકિસ્રોતના ઇતિહાસ અને વિકિ પ્રકલ્પો અંગેનું પ્રેઝેન્ટેશન આપ્યું. જેમાં વિકિસ્રોત જ્યારે સહિયારા વિકિસોર્સમાં હતું, ત્યારથી લઇને તેનું ગુજરાતી ડોમેઇન અસ્તિત્વામાં આવ્યું ત્યારસુધીનો ચિતાર આપતું પ્રેઝેન્ટેશન આપ્યું. સુશાંત સાવલાએ વિકિસ્રોત શું છે? તેને કઇ રીતે વાપરવું, તથા સક્રિય સભ્યોનો પરિચય આપતું પ્રેઝેન્ટેશન આપ્યું. ત્યારબાદ લંડન સ્થિત ગુજરાતી સાહિત્ય અકાદમીના એક સભ્યનો વિકિસ્રોતની પ્રથમ વર્ષગાંઠ નિમિત્તેનો વિડિયો સંદેશ બતાવવામાં આવ્યો અને વિકિસ્રોતના સભ્યોને સર્ટીફીકેટ તથા ટી-શર્ટનું વિતરણ કરવામાં આવ્યું. નીલેશભાઈ બંધીયાએ આભાર પ્રવચન આપ્યું હતું. --Sushant savla (talk) ૧૦:૪૪, ૭ એપ્રિલ ૨૦૧૩ (IST)

ધવલભઈ વ્યાસે પોતાના વક્તવ્યમં જણાવ્યું હતું કે," વિકિપીડિયા મુક્ત જ્ઞાનકોષ છે . પૈસાની અપેક્ષા વગર સ્વયંસેવકની જેમ વ્યક્તિ , લેખો તથા માહિતી વિકિપીડિયા પર ચઢાવે છે . દરેક લખાણ સાથે સંદર્ભ મૂકવામાં આવે છે અને લખનારે અમુક માપદંડોનો ખ્યાલ રાખવાનો હોય છે" . અન્ય નિયામક સુશાંત સાવલાએ જણાવ્યું હતું કે ગાંધીજીના કહેવા મુજબ વૈભવની વહેચણી સામાન્ય જન સુધી થવી જોઈએ તે વાતને ને અનુસરી વિકિસ્રોતમાં ચઢાવવામાં આવતું સાહિત્ય નિ:શુલ્ક વાંચી શકાય છે . પ્રકાશન અધિકારથી મુક્ત પુસ્તકોને જ વિકિસ્રોત પર ચઢાવવામાં આવે છે .

કવિ સંજય પંડ્યાએ શાળા કોલેજો સુધી સાહિત્યપ્રસારની પ્રવૃત્તિ લઇ જઈને વિદ્યાર્થીઓને વિકિસ્રોતમાં સાહિત્ય ચઢાવવા પ્રવૃત્ત કરવા યોજના રજુ કરી હતી . નવલકથાકાર દિનકર જોશીએ પ્રમુખસ્થાનેથી સાહિત્યપ્રસારની પ્રવૃત્તિને બિરદાવી હતી છતાં નવી ટેકનોલોજી માનવ માનવ વચ્ચે અંતર ઉભું ન કરે એનું ધ્યાન રાખવા કહ્યું હતું .

Wikimedia Movement Strategy: 2020 Community Conversations[ફેરફાર કરો]

Dear Wikimedians,

Greetings! Wishing you a very happy new year!

We have an update for the next steps of the Movement Strategy! We're preparing for a final round of community conversations with Wikimedia affiliates and online communities around a synthesized set of draft recommendations to start around late/mid January. In the meantime, recommendations’ writers and strategy team has been working on integrating community ideas and feedback into these recommendations. Thank you, for all of your contributions!

What's New?[ફેરફાર કરો]

The recommendations writers have been working to consolidate the 89 recommendations produced by the working groups. They met in Berlin a few weeks back for an in-person session to produce a synthesized recommendations document which will be shared for public comment around late/mid January. A number of common areas for change were reflected in the recommendations, and the writers assessed and clustered them around these areas. The goal was to outline the overall direction of the change and present one set that is clearly understood, implementable and demonstrates the reasoning behind each.

What's Next?[ફેરફાર કરો]

We will be reaching out to you to help engage your affiliate in discussing this new synthesized version. Your input in helping us refine and advance key ideas will be invaluable, and we are looking forward to engaging with you for a period of thirty days from late/mid January. Our final consultation round is to give communities a chance to "review and discuss" the draft recommendations, highlighting areas of support and concern as well as indicating how your community would be affected.

Please share ideas on how you would like to meet and discuss the final draft recommendations when they are released near Mid January whether through your strategy salons, joining us at global and regional events, joining online conversations, or sending in notes from affiliate discussions. We couldn't do this without you, and hope that you will enjoy seeing your input reflected in the next draft and final recommendations. This will be an opportunity for the movement to review and respond to the recommendations before they are finalized.

If possible, we'd love if you could feature a discussion of the draft recommendations at the next in-person meeting of your affiliate, ideally between the last week of January and the first week of February. If not, please let us know how we can help support you with online conversations and discussing how the draft recommendations fit with the ideas shared at your strategy salon (when applicable).

The input communities have shared so far has been carefully documented, analyzed, and folded into the synthesized draft recommendations. Communities will be able to see footnotes referencing community ideas. What they share again in January/February will be given the same care, seriousness, and transparency.

This final round of community feedback will be presented to the Board of Trustees alongside the final recommendations that will be shared at the Wikimedia Summit.

Wikimedia 2030: Movement Strategy Community conversations are here![ફેરફાર કરો]

Dear Affiliate Representatives and community members,

The launch of our final round of community conversation is finally here! We are excited to have the opportunity to invite you to take part. 
The recommendations have been published! Please take time over the next five weeks to review and help us understand how your organization and community would be impacted.

What Does This Mean?

The core recommendations document has now been published on Meta in Arabic, English, French, German, Hindi, Portuguese, and Spanish. This is the result of more than a year of dedicated work by our working groups, and we are pleased to share the evolution of their work for your final consideration. 
In addition to the recommendations text, you can read through key documents such as Principles, Process, and the Writer’s Reflections, which lend important context to this work and highlight the ways that the recommendations are conceptually interlinked.
We also have a brief Narrative of Change [5] which offers a summary introduction to the recommendations material. 

How Is My Input Reflected In This Work?

Community input played an important role in the drafting of these recommendations. The core recommendations document reflects this and cites community input throughout in footnotes. I also encourage you to take a look at our community input summaries. These texts show a further analysis of how all of the ideas you shared last year through online conversations, affiliate meetings, and strategy salons connect to recommendations. Many of the community notes and reports not footnoted in the core recommendations document are referenced here as evidence of the incredible convergence of ideas that have brought us this far.  

What Happens Now?

Affiliates, online communities, and other stakeholders have the next five weeks to discuss and share feedback on these recommendations. In particular, we’re hoping to better understand how you think they would impact our movement - what benefits and opportunities do you foresee for your affiliate, and why? What challenges or barriers would they pose for you? Your input at this stage is vital, and we’d like to warmly invite you to participate in this final discussion period.

We encourage volunteer discussion co-ordinators for facilitating these discussions in your local language community on-wiki, on social media, informal or formal meet ups, on-hangouts, IRC or the village pump of your project. Please collect a report from these channels or conversations and connect with me directly so that I can be sure your input is collected and used. Alternatively, you can also post the feedback on the meta talk pages of the respective recommendations.

After this five week period, the Core Team will publish a summary report of input from across affiliates, online communities, and other stakeholders for public review before the recommendations are finalized. You can view our updated timeline here as well as an updated FAQ section that addresses topics like the goal of this current period, the various components of the draft recommendations, and what’s next in more detail. 
Thank you again for taking the time to join us in community conversations, and we look forward to receiving your input. (Please help us by translating this message into your local language). Happy reading! RSharma (WMF) MediaWiki message delivery (ચર્ચા) ૦૩:૦૧, ૨૧ જાન્યુઆરી ૨૦૨૦ (IST)

The 2030 movement strategy recommendations are here![ફેરફાર કરો]

Greetings! We are pleased to inform that the 2030 movement strategy recommendations have been published on Meta-wiki. Over the last two years, our movement has worked tirelessly to produce these ideas to change our shared future. Many of you participated in the online conversations, hosted strategy salons, attended regional events, and connected with us in-person at Wikimania. These contributions were invaluable, and will help make our movement stronger for years to come. 

The finished set of 10 recommendations emphasizes many of our core values, such as equity, innovation, safety, and coordination, while tasking us jointly to turn this vision into a reality. These recommendations clarify and refine the previous version, which was published in January this year. They are at a high strategic level so that the ideas are flexible enough to be adapted to different global and local settings and will allow us to navigate future challenges. Along with the recommendations, we have outlined 10 underlying principles, a narrative of change, and a glossary of key terms for better context.

The recommendations are available in numerous languages, including Arabic, German, Hindi, English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish for you to read and share widely. We encourage you to read the recommendations in your own time and at your own pace, either online or in a PDF. There are a couple of other formats for you to take a deeper dive if you wish, such as a one-page summary, slides, and office hours, all collected on Meta. If you would like to comment, you are welcome to do so on the Meta talk pages. However, please note that these are the final version of the recommendations. No further edits will be made. This final version of the recommendations embodies an aspiration for how the Wikimedia movement should continue to change in order to advance that direction and meet the Wikimedia vision in a changing world. 

In terms of next steps, our focus now shifts toward implementation. In light of the cancellation of the Wikimedia Summit, the Wikimedia Foundation is determining the best steps for moving forward through a series of virtual events over the coming months. We will also be hosting live office hours in the next coming few days, where you can join us to celebrate the Strategy and ask questions! Please stay tuned, and thank you once again for helping to drive our movement forward, together. RSharma (WMF)

[Small wiki toolkits – Indic workshop series 2020] Register now![ફેરફાર કરો]

Greetings, hope this message finds you all in the best of your health, and you are staying safe amid the ongoing crisis.

Firstly, to give you context, Small wiki toolkits (SWT) is an initiative to support small wiki communities, to learn and share technical and semi-technical skills to support, maintain, and grow. We are happy to inform you that the SWT group has planned a series of four online workshops for Indic Wikimedia community members during June & July 2020. These workshops have been specifically designed and curated for Indic communities, based on a survey conducted early this year. The four workshops planned in this regard are;

  • Understanding the technical challenges of Indic language wikis (by Birgit): Brainstorming about technical challenges faced by contributors to Indic language Wikimedia projects.
  • Writing user scripts & gadgets (by Jayprakash12345): Basics to intermediate-level training on writing user scripts (Javascript and jQuery fundamentals are prerequisites).
  • Using project management & bug reporting tool Phabricator (by Andre): Introduction to Phabricator, a tool used for project management and software bug reporting.
  • Writing Wikidata queries (by Mahir256): Introduction to the Wikidata Query Service, from writing simple queries to constructing complex visualizations of structured data.
You can read more about these workshops at: SWT Indic Workshop Series 2020/Workshops -- exact dates and timings will be informed later to selected participants.

Registration is open until 24 May 2020, and you can register yourself by visiting this page! These workshops will be quite helpful for Indic communities to expand their technical bandwidth, and further iterations will be conducted based on the response to the current series. Looking forward to your participation! If you have any questions, please contact us on the talk page here. MediaWiki message delivery (ચર્ચા) ૨૩:૦૮, ૧૬ મે ૨૦૨૦ (IST)

Hello everyone,

We hope you are all healthy and safe in these difficult times.

Feedback requested: Ebook Export Improvement Project[ફેરફાર કરો]

Note: This message is in English, but we encourage translation into other languages. Thank you!

Hello, everyone!

I am pleased to announce that the Community Tech team at WMF has posted our August update on the Wikisource Ebook Export Improvement project! This project came out of our 2020 Community Wishlist Survey, and it was the #1 wish voted on by survey participants.

So, what does this mean? In short, we want your feedback! Now that we have posted the August update, we want to know what you think. The update includes findings from our community consultation, results from two separate analyses conducted by the team (on improving WSExport reliability & font rendering support), and proposed next steps. It is our hope that people can read our analysis, share their feedback, and engage in a conversation with us on the talk page. Your feedback will be invaluable, and it will help determine the next steps of the project.

Thank you to everyone who has participated in the consultation so far! It's been a joy to explore how we can improve the ebook export experience. Now, we look forward to reading a new round of feedback on the project talk page!

Wikisource Pagelist Widget: Ready to be enabled[ફેરફાર કરો]

Note: This message is in English, but we encourage translation into other languages. Thank you!

Hello everyone,

We are excited to announce that the Wikisource Pagelist widget is now available to be enabled on all Wikisources. Any interface admin on your wiki can enable it by using the instructions on the following page:

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Help:Extension:ProofreadPage/Pagelist_widget

In case, your wiki doesn’t have an interface admin, reach out to us on the ‘Help with enabling the widget on your wiki’ section of the project talk page and we will connect you with a global interface admin:

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Wikisource_Pagelist_Widget#Help_with_enabling_the_widget_on_your_wiki

You will need to hold a local discussion around what would be the labels for different page types in your language for the visual mode. (For example, ToC = ਤਤਕਰਾ in Punjabi, title = শিরোনাম in Bengali)

Feel free to also give us any feedback on the project talk page on Meta-Wiki as well.

Regards

Wikisource Pagelist Widget: Wikisource Meetup (29th September 2020)[ફેરફાર કરો]

Hello everyone,

We hope you are doing well!

We reached out to you a couple of weeks ago to share that Wikisource Pagelist Widget is now ready to be enabled to Wikisource. Since then, many language Wikisources have enabled the widget but many are yet to do so.

So, we have decided to organize a Wikisource Meetup to give a live demonstration on how to use the widget in both wikitext and visual modes. There will be some time for the participants to share their feedback and experience with the widget. We will also provide support in case some Wikisource communities are seeking help in enabling the widget.

The meetup will take place on 29 September 2020 at 9:30 AM UTC or 3 PM IST. Google Meet link for the meeting is: http://meet.google.com/khu-dfph-qsd

Looking forward to seeing the global Wikisource community connect amid these difficult times when physical meetings have not been taking place.

P.S. If you are planning to attend this meetup and are comfortable in sharing your email address then send us your confirmation in the form of a small email to sgill@wikimedia.org, this will help us in getting a sense of the number of people that are planning to show-up. We are aware that this time-zone is not convenient for everyone and more meetups can be organized in the future.

Regards

Sohom, Sam and Satdeep

Regional Call for South Asia - Oct. 30[ફેરફાર કરો]

Hi everyone. The time has come to put Movement Strategy into work and we need your help. We are inviting South Asian communities, Indian Wikimedians, and anyone else interested to join a region-focused conversation on Movement Strategy and implementation. Please join us on Friday Oct. 30 at 19.30 / 7:30 pm IST (Google Meet).

The purpose of the meeting is to get prepared for global conversations, to identify priorities for implementation in 2021, and to plan the following steps. There are 10 recommendations and they propose multiple 45 initiatives written over two years by many Wikimedians. It is now up to communities to decide which ones we should work on together in 2021, starting with local and regional conversations. Global meetings will take place later in November when we will discuss global coordination and resources. More information about the global events will be shared soon.

  • What is work you’re already doing that is aligned with Movement Strategy?
  • What are priorities for you in 2021?
  • What are things we should all work on globally?

We would not be able to grow and diversify as a movement if communities from South Asia are not meaningfully involved in implementing the recommendations. Join the conversation with your questions and ideas, or just come to say hi. See you on Friday October 30.

A translatable version of this message can be found on Meta.
