Janvier 2014[modifier]

Module:Citation du jour[modifier]

(Sorry for writing in English)

Following my work on it:Modulo:Qotd and en:Module:QoD, I've created this Lua module to make easier to mantain lists of "quotes of the day". It also handles automatic categorization, and features auto-detection of the selected month using the page title, alongside with some internationalization. I've already tested it on some pages and it seems to work fairly well. I propose to stop substituting Modèle:Citations du mois and simply transclude it into all these month subpages, thus reducing page sizes dramatically.

It would also be helpful if someone could write some French documentation at Module:Citation du jour/Documentation, using English comments I have put in the code. Thanks in advance! --Ricordisamoa 7 janvier 2014 à 15:04 (CET)

Great job, I'm going to write it... JackPotte (discussion) 10 janvier 2014 à 22:27 (CET)
@JackPotte: what about using {{Citations du mois}} without substitution? --Ricordisamoa 18 janvier 2014 à 14:03 (CET)
Tested successfully in juin 2011, octobre 2014, avril 2007 and novembre 2009. --Ricordisamoa 18 janvier 2014 à 23:40 (CET)
Great idea, and my bot could do that retroactively (at least here and in the English version), but I'm not sure of all these pages contents before removing them.
Pourquoi pas ? (perché no) JackPotte (discussion) 24 janvier 2014 à 20:59 (CET)
I'm fine with a bot (maybe some manual checks won't hurt). --Ricordisamoa 26 janvier 2014 à 19:05 (CET)
@JackPotte: ? --Ricordisamoa 15 février 2014 à 01:27 (CET)
OK, I'm doing it now. JackPotte (discussion) 15 février 2014 à 21:35 (CET)

Request for comment on Commons: Should Wikimedia support MP4 video?[modifier]

I apologize for this message being only in English. Please translate it if needed to help your community.

The Wikimedia Foundation's multimedia team seeks community guidance on a proposal to support the MP4 video format. This digital video standard is used widely around the world to record, edit and watch videos on mobile phones, desktop computers and home video devices. It is also known as H.264/MPEG-4 or AVC.

Supporting the MP4 format would make it much easier for our users to view and contribute video on Wikipedia and Wikimedia projects -- and video files could be offered in dual formats on our sites, so we could continue to support current open formats (WebM and Ogg Theora).

However, MP4 is a patent-encumbered format, and using a proprietary format would be a departure from our current practice of only supporting open formats on our sites -- even though the licenses appear to have acceptable legal terms, with only a small fee required.

We would appreciate your guidance on whether or not to support MP4. Our Request for Comments presents views both in favor and against MP4 support, based on opinions we’ve heard in our discussions with community and team members.

Please join this RfC -- and share your advice.

All users are welcome to participate, whether you are active on Commons, Wikipedia, other Wikimedia project -- or any site that uses content from our free media repository.

You are also welcome to join tomorrow's Office hours chat on IRC, this Thursday, January 16, at 19:00 UTC, if you would like to discuss this project with our team and other community members.

We look forward to a constructive discussion with you, so we can make a more informed decision together on this important topic. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 16 janvier 2014 à 07:46 (CET)
