Maayong pag-abot sa atong tubaan! Kining maong panid gitagana alang sa komunikasyon sa mga miyembro ning atong katilingban sa Wikipedyang Sinugboanon.

Mahimo kang motabang sa paghimo sa Wikipedya ngadto sa usa ka ikapadayeg nga ensiklopedya pinaagi sa pag-usab sa mga nasulat na nga mga artikulo ug pagsulat og mga bag-ong artikulo. Kon maghimo ka og akawnt mangalan kanimo ang imong mga sinulat.

Suggestion usba

  Idea: I just had an idea about adding the member permissions including: "patroller", "autopatroller" and "rollbacker". Because human resources at cebwiki are currently seriously lacking.

Reason: increase the number of high-quality articles, minimize vandalism (although it is a small wiki, vandalism is still inevitable). What do you think? Halley luv Filipino ❤ 05:21, 12 Enero 2024 (UTC)Reply

I agree with this...Like my point was, if whats in English Wikipedia must apply in here and just translate all the things in English to Cebuano/Bisaya/Sinugboanon Wikipedia I'm here a few months because I was translating about my newly created article in English and now I had 3 in just span of days I figured it out that here was very lack of everything like some of the coding doesn't work because of some reason we're lacking of officer, administrator, etc., And I know the reason why in our official language Filipino main Tagalog the Wikipedia has covered a lot because of interest and people thre are actively engaged and I knw here why it lacks of people from us because just minority who have interest and if they enter in Wikipedia community they only focused on English and Tagalog they cant even also focus or don't have time in Cebuano Wikipedia. So If Whats in English Wikipedia I suggested that it must apply here also with the help of you (admins) And I knw you are programming so its easier for you to do this btw thanks for being here...Rc ramz (talk) 14:15, 28 Enero 2024 (UTC)Reply

English: Hi everyone, I want to announce something. I'm about to add the "extendedconfirmed" permission to our wiki. I'm planning to add an option 30/500 revision lock (to tighten up vandalism if necessary). Accordingly, the "extendedconfirmed" right will be automatically assigned to members who have created an account for 30 days and have 500 edits here. What do you think?

Cebuano: Kumusta sa tanan, gusto ko nga ipahibalo ang usa ka butang. Idugang nako ang "extendedconfirmed" nga pagtugot sa among wiki. Nagplano ko nga magdugang ug opsyon nga 30/500 revision lock (aron hugtan ang bandalismo kung gikinahanglan). Tungod niini, ang "extendedconfirmed" nga katungod awtomatiko nga ma-assign sa mga miyembro nga nakamugna og account sulod sa 30 ka adlaw ug adunay 500 ka mga pag-edit dinhi. Unsa sa imong hunahuna? Halley luv Filipino ❤ 11:53, 28 Enero 2024 (UTC)Reply

IMPORTANT: Admin activity review usba

Hello. A policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, interface administrator, etc.) was adopted by global community consensus in 2013. According to this policy, the stewards are reviewing administrators' activity on all Wikimedia Foundation wikis with no inactivity policy. To the best of our knowledge, your wiki does not have a formal process for removing "advanced rights" from inactive accounts. This means that the stewards will take care of this according to the admin activity review.

We have determined that the following users meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no logged actions for more than 2 years):

  1. Bentong Isles (bureaucrat, administrator)
  2. Harvzs (administrator)

These users will receive a notification soon, asking them to start a community discussion if they want to retain some or all of their rights. If the users do not respond, then their advanced rights will be removed by the stewards.

However, if you as a community would like to create your own activity review process superseding the global one, want to make another decision about these inactive rights holders, or already have a policy that we missed, then please notify the stewards on Meta-Wiki so that we know not to proceed with the rights review on your wiki.

Thanks, Superpes15 (talk) 15:09, 7 Pebrero 2024 (UTC)Reply

  • About the bureaucrat Bentong Isles, I have no opinion on this user (because this user said he left Wikipedia a long time ago as you know before).
  • About admin Harvzs, this user is still active and currently working as a sysop at warwiki, but he seems to be inactive here. I also want to hear this user's opinion on whether he wants to retain his rights here or not (Of course if he doesn't respond after one month, steward can decision to remove admin right of him).

  • We unfortunately don't have many active admins here, only Như Gây Mê who started a few weeks ago who has temporary admin tools but could be given them permanently. I check the recent changes every day or so and if I became an admin I would help with cleaning up the duplicates etc. Qu0404 (talk) 09:19, 8 Pebrero 2024 (UTC)Reply
  • Mosugod ko og hisgutanan susama sa gihangyo. Dili ko mobiya nga sysop. Ako usab tagaan og pahayag kay User:Bentong_Isles ug ang ubang mga sysops sa bag-ong polisiya
I will open up the community discussion as requested shortly. I am not resigning as a sysop. I will also inform User:Bentong_Isles and any other sysops of the new policy. --~~ Harvzs (talk) 08:11, 9 Pebrero 2024 (UTC)Reply

Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees 2024 Selection usba

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

Dear all,

This year, the term of 4 (four) Community- and Affiliate-selected Trustees on the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees will come to an end [1]. The Board invites the whole movement to participate in this year’s selection process and vote to fill those seats.

The Elections Committee will oversee this process with support from Foundation staff [2]. The Board Governance Committee created a Board Selection Working Group from Trustees who cannot be candidates in the 2024 community- and affiliate-selected trustee selection process composed of Dariusz Jemielniak, Nataliia Tymkiv, Esra'a Al Shafei, Kathy Collins, and Shani Evenstein Sigalov [3]. The group is tasked with providing Board oversight for the 2024 trustee selection process, and for keeping the Board informed. More details on the roles of the Elections Committee, Board, and staff are here [4].

Here are the key planned dates:

  • May 2024: Call for candidates and call for questions
  • June 2024: Affiliates vote to shortlist 12 candidates (no shortlisting if 15 or less candidates apply) [5]
  • June-August 2024: Campaign period
  • End of August / beginning of September 2024: Two-week community voting period
  • October–November 2024: Background check of selected candidates
  • Board's Meeting in December 2024: New trustees seated

Learn more about the 2024 selection process - including the detailed timeline, the candidacy process, the campaign rules, and the voter eligibility criteria - on this Meta-wiki page, and make your plan.

Election Volunteers

Another way to be involved with the 2024 selection process is to be an Election Volunteer. Election Volunteers are a bridge between the Elections Committee and their respective community. They help ensure their community is represented and mobilize them to vote. Learn more about the program and how to join on this Meta-wiki page.

Best regards,

Dariusz Jemielniak (Governance Committee Chair, Board Selection Working Group)





[5] Even though the ideal number is 12 candidates for 4 open seats, the shortlisting process will be triggered if there are more than 15 candidates because the 1-3 candidates that are removed might feel ostracized and it would be a lot of work for affiliates to carry out the shortlisting process to only eliminate 1-3 candidates from the candidate list.

The next language community meeting is scheduled in a few weeks - May 31st at 16:00 UTC. If you're interested, you can sign up on this wiki page.

This is a participant-driven meeting, where we share language-specific updates related to various projects, collectively discuss technical issues related to language wikis, and work together to find possible solutions. For example, in the last meeting, the topics included the machine translation service (MinT) and the languages and models it currently supports, localization efforts from the Kiwix team, and technical challenges with numerical sorting in files used on Bengali Wikisource.

Do you have any ideas for topics to share technical updates related to your project? Any problems that you would like to bring for discussion during the meeting? Do you need interpretation support from English to another language? Please reach out to me at ssethi(__AT__) and add agenda items to the document here.

Dear community members,

The Community Affairs Committee (CAC) of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees invites you to give feedback on a draft Procedure for Sibling Project Lifecycle.
