Wikidata: Access to data from arbitrary items is comingУреди

(Sorry for writing in English)

When using data from Wikidata on Wikipedia and other sister projects, there is currently a limitation in place that hinders some use cases: data can only be accessed from the corresponding item. So, for example, the Wikipedia article about Berlin can only get data from the Wikidata item about Berlin but not from the item about Germany. This had technical reasons. We are now removing this limitation. It is already done for many projects. Your project is one of the next ones. We will roll out this feature here on August 12.

We invite you to play around with this new feature if you are one of the people who have been waiting for this for a long time. If you have technical issues/questions with this you can come to d:Wikidata:Contact the development team.

A note of caution: Please be careful with how many items you use for a single page. If it is too many pages, loading might get slow. We will have to see how the feature behaves in production to see where we need to tweak and how.

How to use it, once it is enabled:

On behalf of Wikipedia Community User Group Greece, we would like to invite you to be part of an ambitious Wikipedia-inspired project for the City of Thessaloniki. The project is entitled thesswiki, and aims to digitize the history and culture of the city of Thessaloniki and connect the physical monuments to the wikipedia world.

QR codes will be mounted on the sides of buildings or monuments in order to allow users with smartphones, focusing specifically on tourists and visitors, to scan them and instantly access up-to-date Wikipedia entries about all aspects of life in Thessaloniki in their native language. (see QRpedia)

We invite you to support the project and write and extend articles about these monuments in your own languages, as this will benefit visitors of Thessaloniki, from you own country. You can see the actual progress on the following page: meta:thesswiki#Articles of interest

Museums and archives of the city have pledged to open and upload content to Wikimedia Commons, and also support the writting of better articles.

At this point, we are excited to invite neighboring and other international Wikipedia chapters or User Froups, and interested Wikimedians to participate in the project. The project will be officially announced at the opening ceremony of Demetria Festival 2015, the most prominent annual cultural festival taking place in Thessaloniki in September 2015 and an official kick-off event is planned to take place during the weekend of September 26 & 27.

During the kick off event, we will present the project and what has taken place this far to the general public. Moreover, an Edit-athon event and a QR-marathon will take place, and possibly include speeches from international speakers and host a wiki-camp for international participants.

In this framework, we invite you to a 2-day-backstage-visit schedule, especially designed for wikipedians wishing to travel to Thessaloniki during the kick-off event, offering a VIP-tour around the most prominent museums, monuments, and galleries in the city (such as the Museum of Byzantine Culture, the Museum of Photography, and the State Museum of Contemporary Art) and participation in major Dimitria and thesswiki actions. We are aiming to inspire you to write articles in your native wikipedia languages and we are planning to offer accommodation for two nights (25-26 September), and meals as detailed in the attached agenda. (Since the budget for this program is limited, if your chapter/user-group is able to cover travel expenses for you users and you would like to use it instead of our free accommodation offer, you would be more than welcome to use it :). This will help us host even more people!) In case you are interested, please reply ASAP to team@wikimedia.gr and thesswiki@postscriptum.gr to help you arrange all the specifics and provide you further information.

(Sorry for writing in english. Feel free to translate.)

Wikimania 2016 scholarships ambassadors neededУреди

Hello! Wikimania 2016 scholarships will soon be open; by the end of the week we'll form the committee and we need your help, see Scholarship committee for details.

If you want to carefully review nearly a thousand applications in January, you might be a perfect committee member. Otherwise, you can volunteer as "ambassador": you will observe all the committee activities, ensure that people from your language or project manage to apply for a scholarship, translate scholarship applications written in your language to English and so on. Ambassadors are allowed to ask for a scholarship, unlike committee members.

Your input requested on the proposed #FreeBassel banner campaignУреди

This is a message regarding the proposed 2015 Free Bassel banner. Translations are available.

Hi everyone,

This is to inform all Wikimedia contributors that a straw poll seeking your involvement has just been started on Meta-Wiki.

As some of your might be aware, a small group of Wikimedia volunteers have proposed a banner campaign informing Wikipedia readers about the urgent situation of our fellow Wikipedian, open source software developer and Creative Commons activist, Bassel Khartabil. An exemplary banner and an explanatory page have now been prepared, and translated into about half a dozen languages by volunteer translators.

We are seeking your involvement to decide if the global Wikimedia community approves starting a banner campaign asking Wikipedia readers to call on the Syrian government to release Bassel from prison. We understand that a campaign like this would be unprecedented in Wikipedia's history, which is why we're seeking the widest possible consensus among the community.

Given Bassel's urgent situation and the resulting tight schedule, we ask everyone to get involved with the poll and the discussion to the widest possible extent, and to promote it among your communities as soon as possible.

(Apologies for writing in English; please kindly translate this message into your own language.)

Thank you for your participation!

Get involved in Wikipedia 15!Уреди

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

As many of you know, January 15 is Wikipedia’s 15th Birthday!

People around the world are getting involved in the celebration and have started adding their events on Meta Page. While we are celebrating Wikipedia's birthday, we hope that all projects and affiliates will be able to utilize this celebration to raise awareness of our community's efforts.

Haven’t started planning? Don’t worry, there’s lots of ways to get involved. Here are some ideas:

Everything is linked on the Wikipedia 15 Meta page. You’ll find a set of ten data visualization works that you can show at your events, and a list of all the Wikipedia 15 logos that community members have already designed.

If you have any questions, please contact Zachary McCune or Joe Sutherland.

Thanks and Happy nearly Wikipedia 15!
-The Wikimedia Foundation Communications team
