"copyvio invasion" from cawiki/commons[edit]

I found some users that uploaded a lot of copyvios and not appropriate files / audio files here:

I have found their accounts with the same uploads on cawiki and/or commons, mostly blocked there indef. I blocked the user and deleted the files, but might be there are some elder left or they will come in the next future. Pls have a look at this. Thanks -jkb- (talk) 21:40, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

@Aleator: you have some idea? -jkb- (talk) 21:44, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

@-jkb-: It seems to be related to some news that say Wikimedia and Facebook have given Angolans free access to their websites, but not to the rest of the internet. So, naturally, Angolans have started hiding pirated movies and music in Wikipedia articles (...) (e.g. w:en:Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Signpost/2016-03-23/In_the_media). In Angola the spoken language is Portuguese, which fits with some of their edits, but I cannot understand why they choose to edit on ca.wiki (it makes no sense). I'll have a look to uploaded files all around. Thanks for ping (that's a good invention :) -Aleator 16:03, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
Oh, thanks. OK, I am not admin on Facebook, and what WMF did concerning other projects ... OK, no comment. But all of the files and audio files were not sourced, not licenced / copyvios, fully out of scope here on sourceswiki. WMF should make an agreement where the kiddies can edit (yep, the most fotos were kids from Africa etc.); yep, the spoke portuguese so I don't know what they have been looking for in the dcatalan projets aölthough even editin in portuguese projets; the most blocks were on cawiki and commons (and now here). However, we have to delete the inputs. Thanks once more, -jkb- (talk) 01:01, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

I am a bit unhappy about the ongoing problems with the angolan kids. Yes, everybody knows the huge problems over there, not only with the education, internet and the situation of the youth. And everybody, me inclusive, must support the thought (see Aleators report above) to support the young people there with free access or whatever to WMF projects. But the people who are responsible for this had to instruct them what where when and how they can edit here. At present it seems to be a problem here, on commons and on ca.wiki because the angolan users supply us with a great amount of copyvios and other not suitable files. It costs us time to repair it, and more over, I do not delete the files and I do not block the users with pleasure, I'm sorry about it, but otherwise a chaos will uprise here soon. Any idea somebody? @Aleator: do you know what responsible person in the WMF could be contacted in this matter? Regards -jkb- (talk) 23:33, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

I've been searching and it seems the problems started December 2014. In wmf:Wikipedia Zero there is a mail to WZ team. I've also found this july 2015 link in Meta (m:Wikimedia_Forum/Archives/2015-07#Wikipedia_Zero_being_used_to_violate_copyright) which lists some WMF members that may be interested, so I ping them all 3: @AVrana (WMF), Dfoy (WMF), Jalexander-WMF: (I'll also ping them from Commons because 2 first user account don't exist here at Multilingual Wikisource). In any case it seems that it is a group of youngs (w:pt:Usuário(a) Discussão:Evanildo Da Silva Tecnomant has written a list of friends very close to the list above). I'm sure: they will get tired soon. Best regards! -Aleator 00:29, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

Numbers at the main page[edit]

What pages do you mean? I enter any language edition in the top ten and see completely different numbers... --Infovarius (talk) 10:45, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

@Infovarius: These are very old, outdated values based on these statistics. However, my attempt to update them almost a year ago was contested (see this discussion).
It seems there is no clear consensus which statistics should be used, if any. And it is a real problem as we have various statistics:
I can imagine many criteria that can be used. But, as various Wikisources are very different according to used technology, organization, encoding, etc., no single criterion allows to compare all Wikisources in a fair way. Just few examples:
criterion disadvantages
1. number of "good articles" definition of a good article varies among wikis: some wikis include pages from the Page namespace here, some do not; it is not fair to count a text from 50-page book as "1" when ProofreadPage is not used vs. as "51" when all 50 pages are "good articles"
2. number of pages in the main namespace in some wikis subpages are used to present short encyclopedic notes or dictionary entries; it is not fair to treat few-words entry in the same way as a novel; also some wikis use the Author ns, some present the same content in the main ns
3. number of pages in the main namespace (without subpages) in some wikis subpages are used for presenting content of large books; it is not fair to treat a multi-volume book in the same way as a short poem or large novel as a short poem; also some wikis use the Author ns, while others present information about authors in the main ns
4. number of "proofread" / "validated" pages in the Page namespace not all wikis use ProofreadPage; they would be discriminated
5. number of pages in the Page namespace as above + some wikis upload pure OCR which is not very valuable contribution
6. number of bytes in all pages some languages use mainly single-byte Unicode characters, some base on multi-byte characters; also in few wikis multiple copies of almost the same content may be present (various orthography / alphabet / presentation form versions etc.)
7. number of bytes in the main ns pages see above + in wikis using ProofreadPage the main ns contains almost no content
8. number of characters in all pages some languages are more compact, some are more verbose
9. database size each edit creates a new copy of the whole page in the database; so wikis with edits to large pages (not using ProofreadPage) would be preferred here
10. number of pageviews per day/month/year wikisource traffic is generally low and it is easy to falsify it; so not very reliable; our activity should be based on creating content, not on traffic generation
Maybe we should start the discussion again? I have no idea which criterion or which criteria are the best to be used on the main page. Ten of them seems to be too many. Ankry (talk) 15:28, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, good review. So many criteria... I can propose a new one: a number of creative works (can be obtained by a query to Wikidata). --Infovarius (talk) 15:57, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
You are joking, aren't you? Ankry (talk) 20:53, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

New way to edit wikitext[edit]

Abuse filter[edit]

@-jkb-, Jusjih, Satdeep Gill, Tpt, Yann:@Zyephyrus: To minimize recent problems with Angolan/Wikipedia_zero users using wikis as file-sharing sites, I just added a filter limitting file uploads by low-contribution users. Everybody is still authorized to upload djvu/pdf. Other files should mostly go to Commons. Let me know if you see any problem with this filter. Ankry (talk) 13:44, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

  • just as I told you on your talk page: very good and useful idea, thanks. -jkb- (talk) 14:41, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

Removing gu[edit]

New template to replace magic words[edit]

Template:ISBN I have ported over w:Template:ISBN and w:Module:Check isxn from en.wp. Magic words as links are being phased out and although we don't have to replace all instances of them now, they will all be removed from MediaWiki in 2017. See mw:Requests_for_comment/Future_of_magic_links. We currently have no entries in Category:Pages using ISBN magic links. —Justin (koavf)TCM 03:13, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Pages to import[edit]

See here Evidently, incubator:Category:Wq/or/wikisource is hosting a work in Oriya which should probably be brought here. We currently have no Oriya texts. —Justin (koavf)TCM 00:46, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

Oriya language has been already granted with a wikisource workplace 2.5 years ago: Oriya Wikisource; may we ping their village pump --C.R. (talk) 10:12, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

What wil be language code in config.ini? Is it 'mul' If not then pls help me.By any chance is it due to abuse filter(limitation of file upload for low contribution user)?

Bot edits without a bot flag (problem and suggestion)[edit]

In last time there emerge more and more users who work (most probably) with a bot script (or bots without a flag), sometimes there are less then 100 Edits a day, but sometimes there are some more hundreds of edits a day, and on some days some two or three user are working this same way parallel. It is nice and good that we have such a edit amount and such good users, but I have more and more problems wirt it: when I have a look after this project so the recent changes are sometimes fully useless, and it possible to controll vandalism and other negative edits at all.
Time ago I spoke about this with User Satdeep Gill and I proposed that he requests a bot flag for his bot. He did - see Wikisource:Administrators#User:Satdeepbot (but: up to now there are no other votes or ideas from other users). My policy is since a very long time to grant as few wikisource bot flags as possible, but here we have a problem: the bot edits without a flag are disturbing the normal work here, if we prohibit it (or even block the accounts - omg no!), we disturb the work of good users.
Thus my proposal:

  • all users editing with bots or scripts limit their edits and do not more then approx 100 a day until we have a solution
  • all such user apply for a temporary bot flag at Wikisource:Administrators#Requests for other rights specifying for which sort of work and how long
  • when no objections within some 7 or 10 days, the bureaucrats will grant this bot flag for a time needed (if too short so it can be renewed) under the condition, that the flag will be used for the specified task. Bot edits without a flag will not be permited.

@Satdeep Gill, Nitesh Gill, Sumita Roy Dutta: - I hope I have all (if not so ping them pls) - for your information. OK? -jkb- (talk) 17:19, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

I support. Ankry (talk) 12:39, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

Unsourced vandalized(?) pages[edit]

Any hints what can we do with such texts? Unsourced, no author information, no copyright information, recently vandalised (?, or maybe it was an attempt to remove inappropriate text/copyright violation?), the uploader is inactive for few years.

Personally I refuse to revert last edit until I ensure the text is really free. Ankry (talk) 12:37, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

Yep. Additionally the Main Page/Oromo is problematic as well; the probably per original research created icon hys been uploaded to commons by a bot, the user 3247 renamed to User:Cfaerber SUL stopped editing mostly in 2010: in the Category:Oromo there is another page - Edipas mooticha, the same problem. The author Chabi1 SUL seems to stop his edits in 2014.
Just according to the policy pof the WMF we should avoid any copyvio here (and we have ten thousand!), and this seems to be one (no source, no licence ietc.). Thus I would vote for a deletion (the page, however, can be restored). Some more userful votes? -jkb- (talk) 14:58, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
I agree we need to (at least) check the source and the licenses of every piece of literature here in wikisource, and to put some note on why every material is on the public domain or either published as CC-BY-SA. For the case of Oromoo:

Both are two (almost) different cases:

  • Mammaaksa Oromoo is a collection of proverbs in Oromoo, unless we find a book/web with the same configuration of the proverbs, being older than this, it will be difficult to claim copyright. (Probably one or two speakers can easily reproduce the list by heart)
  • Edipas mooticha is a different case, since it is the full translation of Oedipus Rex; You can find an older translation, here in Oromoo; It may be subject to the sole property of the blogger, or maybe it is a copyvio from a book, who knows. But at least, that's the case where we have an older reference than the wikisource itself -potential copyvio, unless it comes from an expired copyright author, or a release under CC-BY-SA license, may we contact the blogger? or will it be better to delete it?--C.R. (talk) 20:37, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
I found out that in the Oromoo wikipedia, a colleague there was arranging proverbs in this page: w:om:Tarree Mammaaksa Oromoo, two days ago, coincidence. I will ask if we can delete the proverbs here in wikisource (since the om.wikipedia will store an article dedicated to them) and maybe we can let some parkplace for a future wikisource on he Oromoo main page :D [I will ask also about the theater play Oedipus Rex]--C.R.

An outpost for Wikilivres[edit]

Assistance requested As some of you may know, Wikilivres(.ca) is a complementary site to Wikisource and Commons. It has a history with Wikimedia Canada but there is no formal relationship between the WMF or WM-CA and Wikilivres, just some overlap in userbase and scope. The project was originally handled by User:Yann and then User:Eclecticology. The latter died last year and the fate of Wikilivres is uncertain. While that community tries to transition past the loss of someone who was very important in the WikiSphere and figures out the logistics of what we do next, we have experienced some downtime in our hosting. If the site goes dark again, do you think it would be possible for us to have a noticeboard hosted here for the purposes of communication and coordination? Possibly at Wikisource:Wikilivres? I figured I would ask mul.ws since Wikilivres more-or-less grew out of this project and there is less activity here than at en.ws (plus Wikilivres is multi-lingual as well). —Justin (koavf)TCM 07:59, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

Review of initial updates on Wikimedia movement strategy process[edit]

Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English. Message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

The Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout 2017. For 15 years, Wikimedians have worked together to build the largest free knowledge resource in human history. During this time, we've grown from a small group of editors to a diverse network of editors, developers, affiliates, readers, donors, and partners. Today, we are more than a group of websites. We are a movement rooted in values and a powerful vision: all knowledge for all people. As a movement, we have an opportunity to decide where we go from here.

This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve. We hope to design an inclusive process that makes space for everyone: editors, community leaders, affiliates, developers, readers, donors, technology platforms, institutional partners, and people we have yet to reach. There will be multiple ways to participate including on-wiki, in private spaces, and in-person meetings. You are warmly invited to join and make your voice heard.

The immediate goal is to have a strategic direction by Wikimania 2017 to help frame a discussion on how we work together toward that strategic direction.

Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list, and posted on Meta-Wiki. Beginning with this message, monthly reviews of these updates will be sent to this page as well. Sign up to receive future announcements and monthly highlights of strategy updates on your user talk page.

Here is a review of the updates that have been sent so far:

More information about the movement strategy is available on the Meta-Wiki 2017 Wikimedia movement strategy portal.

Sheet music[edit]

I'd like to have some scores transcribed with the score extention. Would like to begin with File:Sérénade Français.pdf and File:Olympic Anthem Score.pdf by Spyros Samaras. I had originaly uploaded the Olympic Anthem at Greek wikisource since it has greek lyrics, but deleted it as the first version of the score had pages missing. (a part of the transcription is here: el:User:Ah3kal/Πρόχειρο) But I think multilingual wikisource would be a better place.

  1. I suppose this the right place, given this past RFC (meta:Requests for comment/Musical score transcription project proposal)
  2. What language code am I supposed to add (if any) to the index?
  3. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Thank you. Ah3kal (talk) 06:37, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

The language code should be probably "zxx". At least according to ISO 639-2, Ankry (talk) 21:02, 3 March 2017 (UTC)
As above, yes, zxx is explicitly for non-linguistic information. If we have documents that don't have a human language in them, then that is the appropriate code. —Justin (koavf)TCM 21:45, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

Wikisource vision development[edit]

Why are its subpages in the main namespace? How about renaming to "Wikisource:Vision development"?--Jusjih (talk) 21:07, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

@Jusjih: Agreed. This is not a source document... Actually, it may even be better suited to the thematic group on Meta but for now, I will move its namespace. —Justin (koavf)TCM 21:46, 7 March 2017 (UTC)
Meta has three importers. Asking them may move the relevant pages there.--Jusjih (talk) 01:53, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Overview #2 of updates on Wikimedia movement strategy process[edit]

Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English. This message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

As we mentioned last month, the Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout 2017. This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve.

Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list, and posted on Meta-Wiki. Each month, we are sending overviews of these updates to this page as well. Sign up to receive future announcements and monthly highlights of strategy updates on your user talk page.

Here is a overview of the updates that have been sent since our message last month:

More information about the movement strategy is available on the Meta-Wiki 2017 Wikimedia movement strategy portal.
