I would like to propose operating InternetArchiveBot on Estonian Wikipedia. The bot finds dead links on articles, adds links to archived versions where available, and it also adds links to books where it is appropriate. It is currently approved to do this for over 50 Wikimedia wikis. The bot can be configured and translated through the web interface. Please let me know of your thoughts. Harej (arutelu) 2. veebruar 2021, kell 22:25 (EET)

Harej, could the bot do some test edits in here so that we could see how is it performing? Ivo (arutelu) 23. aprill 2021, kell 00:16 (EEST)
Kruusamägi, I will run the bot for around 50 edits. Harej (arutelu) 23. aprill 2021, kell 00:41 (EEST)
[1] -- "archive-date" should not be yyyy-mm-dd, but dd-mm-yyyy (or even better: dd. monthname yyyy) Ivo (arutelu) 23. aprill 2021, kell 01:08 (EEST)
I'm not sure, that it should add archive links under the "External links" (Välislingid) section (example). Some of the pages there might have moved and it might be more reasonable to replace them with current links or remove them (but this broken link thing is pretty handy). Ivo (arutelu) 23. aprill 2021, kell 01:23 (EEST)
Ma arvan, et arhiivilinke peaks robot lisama ainult viidetesse. Häälestuslehel on esimene valik vist selle kohta ("Only links within references"). Peaks üle vaatama ka teised sätted (milliseid viitemalle robot kasutab ja lisab või kas lisab). Pikne 24. aprill 2021, kell 15:37 (EEST)
Inglise vikis olen ma täheldanud, et bot (minu meelest seesama) on võtnud mõnikord Internet Archive'i lingi maha, kui tema arust on algne leht üleval. See ei oleks väga halb, kui ta ei peaks toimivateks lehtedeks ka ebastandardseid veateateid, asendades toimiva lingi katkisega. Nii et kui võimalik, oleks seda funktsiooni ehk mõistlik vältida. --Ehitaja (arutelu) 9. mai 2021, kell 23:09 (EEST)
Muidu oleks vast hea selle botiga edasi minna? Kas kellelegi jääb silma veel mingeid probleemseid kohti? (peale selle, et bot ei tohiks välislinke mudida) Ivo (arutelu) 18. mai 2021, kell 01:42 (EEST)
Harej, should we move on with operating InternetArchiveBot on Estonian Wikipedia? There have been some ideas for small changes. Ivo (arutelu) 4. august 2021, kell 20:41 (EEST)
Ivo, if you believe there is community consensus I am happy to activate the bot. What changes in particular should be made before reactivating the bot? Harej (arutelu) 5. august 2021, kell 02:01 (EEST)

Harej, community seems to be fine with it. Two main things have gone up:

  • links under the "External links" (Välislingid) should remain untouched... at least for now (i.e only dealing with references);
  • "archive-date" should not be yyyy-mm-dd, but dd-mm-yyyy (or even better: dd. monthname yyyy)

With that maybe 200 more edits, and then we could review it before giving a final go? Ivo (arutelu) 5. august 2021, kell 03:22 (EEST)

And there is also a question if the bot might remove Internet Archive links if it (sometimes maybe wrongly) thinks that the original site is up. Ivo (arutelu) 5. august 2021, kell 03:25 (EEST)
Ivo, the requested configuration changes have been made. Also, the bot will not remove archive links under any circumstances. I have re-enabled the bot for testing and so far I think things are looking good. Let me know what you think. Harej (arutelu) 13. august 2021, kell 01:59 (EEST)
The bot has finished making its 200 test edits. Harej (arutelu) 13. august 2021, kell 08:58 (EEST)

Seni pole midagi problemaatilist ette tulnud. - Melilac (arutelu) 13. august 2021, kell 16:56 (EEST)

I translated the edit summary like this: "Osa allikalinke varustatud arhiivilingiga ({linksrescued}) või märgitud mittetöötavaks ({linkstagged})." Does it have plural support? Currently I tried to work around it by putting numbers in brackets.

I also notice the following: 1) date numbers shouldn't be zero-padded, e.g. see warning messages here, 2) if plain link is converted to template then preferably it should use Estonian-language template {{Netiviide}}. Pikne 13. august 2021, kell 19:19 (EEST)

Current wording in {{Cite web}} also expects that month name is declined in access date, but not in archive date. So to work around this I now changed date format to This way zero-padded day number is less odd, but it would be still nice if zero could be omitted. Pikne 13. august 2021, kell 19:35 (EEST)
Or does the bot touch only archive dates? If so then preferably it should still use no zero-padding and full month name. Pikne 13. august 2021, kell 19:42 (EEST)
Harej, any comments? Ivo (arutelu) 21. august 2021, kell 19:01 (EEST)
Ivo, we have implemented the requested change and will do another test run of 200. Harej (arutelu) 11. oktoober 2021, kell 19:30 (EEST)
The test edits are complete. Please let me know what you think. Harej (arutelu) 11. oktoober 2021, kell 22:30 (EEST)
Pikne, kuidas sulle paistab? Mulle põgusal vaatlusel probleeme silma ei jäänud. Ivo (arutelu) 12. oktoober 2021, kell 01:08 (EEST)
Harej, there's some sort of encoding error in Special:Diff/5975295 (� in palce of ä).
I understand that zero-padded date numbers were changed. This looks fine now. Thank you.
I now notice that this date formatting is used for both access-date and archive-date, while these parameters need different grammatical case in month name, e.g. "märts" and "märtsil" respectively. I suppose then we still have to use %-e.%m.%Y formatting to work around this.
Above I also wondered if plain link to template conversion could use localized template {{netiviide}} instead of {{cite web}}. If it cannot, then I would rather drop this conversion in configuration. Pikne 12. oktoober 2021, kell 20:01 (EEST)
Pikne, unfortunately due to technical limitations, InternetArchiveBot can't post dates in multiple grammatical cases. However, I was able to change the preferred template to {{Netiviide}}. Harej (arutelu) 13. oktoober 2021, kell 00:16 (EEST)
Harej, where can I check the parameter mapping for local {{Netiviide}}? It's not present in configuration interface, as far as I can see. Or, could you do some more test edits to show how it works? As for date format, I changed it to %-e.%m.%Y then for now. Pikne 31. oktoober 2021, kell 20:09 (EET)

Election VolunteersRedigeeri

Hello. I apologize for sending a message in English. Please help translate to your language.

As you already know, this year (July-August) there will be an election to the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. In this regard, the Wikimedia Foundation is trying to improve some parameters, including the WMF wants to improve the voter turnout. To do this, we are looking for volunteers from local communities to help us in this matter, as volunteers from specific communities know their community better.

Volunteers during elections should perform the following functions:

  • Promote the election in their communities’ channels
  • Organize discussions about the election in their communities
  • Translate messages for their communities

Do you want to be an Election Volunteer and connect your community with this movement effort? Check out more details about Election Volunteers and add your name next to the community you will support in this table or get in contact with a facilitator.

Kindly. --Mehman (WMF) (arutelu) 9. mai 2021, kell 19:45 (EEST)

please test: Growth team featuresRedigeeri

Hello! Sorry to use English. Palun aita emakeelde tõlkida.

I'm Trizek (WMF). I work as a community relations specialist for the Wikimedia Foundation. I'm here to share a message from the Growth team.

As you may already know, the Growth team's goal is to create features that would help newcomers. Our goal is to help newcomers when they edit for the first time and also to increase the retention of new editors. Several wikis already have these features since a long time now. Working with these wikis, the Growth team found evidence of the efficiency of these new features.

These features will be available for all new accounts on your Wikipedia starting on the week of August 23, 2021. This way your Wikipedia will offer more options for newcomers to make good first edits and become community members.

Which features?Redigeeri

The newcomer homepage (here on Portuguese Wikipedia, displayed in English)

We have created several features to help them, and also to help community members who help them :

  • Newcomer homepage: a new special page, the best place for a newcomer to get started. Please visit it at Special:Homepage It includes:
    • Newcomer tasks: a feed of task suggestions that help newcomers learn to edit. Newcomers have been making productive edits through this feed! Know more about this tool.
    • Mentorship module [optional]: each newcomers has a direct link to an experienced user (see below). This way, they can ask questions about editing Wikipedia, less the need to find where to ask for assistance.
    • Impact module: the user sees how many pages views articles they edit received. Have a look at Special:Impact for yours!
  • Help panel: a platform to provide resources to newcomers while they are editing. If they do some suggested tasks, they are guided step-by-step on the process of editing.
  • Welcome Survey: communities can know why newcomers create an account on Wikipedia. You can see it at Special:WelcomeSurvey.

The features available right now in your preferences (here and there) so that you can try them. They are not yet visible to newcomers.

How to help?Redigeeri

First, we need help to translate the features. At the moment, most of the messages newcomers will see on your Wikipedia are in English, some of them have been translated using machine translation. Please help translate the interface (done on It needs a specific account).

Also, I need your help checking on the configuration the team setups as default. Please try the features and let us know if something questions you.

Newcomers tasks are based on templates to suggest edits to newcomers. You can check the templates used on MediaWiki:NewcomerTasks.json. You can also change the templates and the help links defined there. Several templates can be added for the same task.

It you are familiar with Phabricator, here is the ticket about this deployment. Please find your wiki in the list to access all the information we used for the deployment. Please have a look at it. You can suggest changes by replying to this message.

If you wish to, you can create a list of mentors. This will activate the optional Mentorship module. Please format the list following the guidance. You need at least one mentor for each 500 new accounts created monthly on your wiki (3 mentors minimum). Are you hesitant to become a mentor? Please check the resources we have written based on other mentors' experiences. Please tell us if you are interested by creating a mentor list!

Let me know if you have any question about this deployment, please ping me! Of course, if this message is not at the right place, please move or share it (and let me know).

All the best, Trizek (WMF), 4. august 2021, kell 18:33 (EEST)

Universal Code of Conduct - Enforcement draft guidelines reviewRedigeeri

Hello all,
The Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2 drafting committee would like comments about the enforcement draft guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC). This review period is planned to begin 17 August 2021.

Community and staff members collaborated to develop these draft guidelines based on consultations, discussions, and research. These guidelines are not final but you can help move the progress forward. Provide comments about these guidelines by 17 October 2021. The committee will be revising the guidelines based upon community input.

Everyone may share comments in a number of places. Facilitators welcome comments in any language on the draft review talk page or by email. Comments can also be shared on talk pages of translations, at local discussions, or during round-table discussions and conversation hours.

There are planned live discussions about the UCoC enforcement draft guidelines:

The facilitation team supporting this review period hopes to reach a large number of communities. Having a shared understanding is important. If you do not see a conversation happening in your community, please organize a discussion. Facilitators can assist you in setting up the conversations.

Discussions will be summarized and presented to the drafting committee every two weeks. The summaries will be published here.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the draft, the community consultation or the UCoC.
Many thanks! --Mervat (WMF) (arutelu) 19. august 2021, kell 00:17 (EEST)
