Admin on the Papiamentu Wikipedia?[editá fuente]

Hi,

Some people would like to 'revive' the Papiamentu Wikipedia, but there is some backlogged maintenance work that need to be done first. I've been an admin on the Dutch Wikipedia for 14 years and from that experience offer to help out, by doing some maintenance work but also by showing other new admins, that hopefully step forward soon, how the Mediawiki extensions work, how to keep a wiki clean, and how to build a community.

For this it would be handy if I was granted admin rights on this wiki: it is in no way my intention to be admin for life, since I do not speak the language, but I am more than willing to help set up this new community. I'd like to apply for adminship on meta over ~10 days, if everyone is okay with this at least. Please let me know if you have any questions, either here or by email.

Hi Ciell,
I am very grateful that you want to help out with Wikipedia Papiamentu and would like very much if you could join as an administrator temporarily. YAniceta (talk) 13:37, 18 novèmber 2020 (UTC)
As an active editor I definitely root for expanding the team in order to take the Papiamentu/o wikipedia to the next level. So I look forward to welcoming Ciell soon!! Caribiana (talk) 18:13, 18 novèmber 2020 (UTC)
Totally fine with me too for Ciell to become an admin here. --Dwerg85 (talk) 16:43, 20 novèmber 2020 (UTC)
I've been granted rights for 3 months, I hope to be able to do clean-up and teaching others how things work. Will be continued! Ciell (talk) 09:33, 24 novèmber 2020 (UTC)

Curaçao photos[editá fuente]

My apologies as I am not fluent in Papiamentu. I would just like to let people know there is a big collection of images from Curaçao's history. (Click here for photos of people; there are some color photos from the 1960s as well.) Many of them are not used and I imagine many people interested in this Wikipedia would like to use them if they don't already know about them. DoSazunielle (talk) 14:34, 18 novèmber 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for bringing this to the attention. Found three unused images related to articles in progress.Caribiana (talk) 18:01, 18 novèmber 2020 (UTC)

Adjustments for this wiki[editá fuente]

Hi,

I've put in a request for a patrolling marker, so we can check off patrolled edits (for instance in the recent changes). I need community support for this, so please let me know if you support this feature, either here below, or on phabricator:T268924. (You can log in and comment with your Wikimedia-account)

I would also like to propose to ask for a 'new section' tab to be added for talk pages and the Portal di komunidat. This tab is on the right, between 'edit' and history, so you don't have to edit the complete page if you want to create a new section (like here on en:). Please also for this speak your mind whether you would support such a change.

(courtesy ping @Caribiana, @YAniceta, @Dwerg85)

Best, Ciell (talk) 10:17, 29 novèmber 2020 (UTC)


These are all positive additions and improvements to the wiki. +1 support from me. --Dwerg85 (talk) 23:01, 7 desèmber 2020 (UTC)
Thanks Dwergje! Patrolling has been turned on this afternoon: you can now see the exclamation mark in the recent changes, and a "mark as patrolled" button when you compare versions. On the Dutch Wikipedia we only use this for ip- or newbie edits, but off course this wiki can decide different. Ciell (talk) 21:00, 15 desèmber 2020 (UTC)

Templates needed[editá fuente]

Can someone give assistance to the Papiamento wikipedia community by creating for us the following templates: {{commonscat}} and Template:Coor title dms? Your contribution is highly appreciated. Any questions please contact me. Caribiana (talk) 11:13, 25 yanüari 2021 (UTC)

I planned for this week to check how far along we are with everything, so I'll add these two templates on my list! Ciell (talk) 20:52, 25 yanüari 2021 (UTC)
Do we have a {{welcome}} already? I see we were joined by several new users last week, it would be nice to be able to send them a welcome message, in Papiamentu off course! Ciell (talk) 20:59, 25 yanüari 2021 (UTC)
Thank you, Ciell! I will make an effort to create a welcome template. Still learning by trial and error!!! Today I tried to use this Template:Infobox stadion, but it does not work. Under special pages there is a list of unused templates that perhaps also need reviewing.Caribiana (talk) 22:54, 25 yanüari 2021 (UTC)
More complicated templates, like infoboxes, need a background with en:Lua (programming language) to make information visible - that looks like the case with this one. It may be better to find a simpler template on another wiki to copy the code from. If I recall correctly, also YAniceta does not know Lua, and I know very little people that can really work with this code. Ciell (talk) 06:39, 26 yanüari 2021 (UTC)
I did a quick move of {{Commonscat}} for you. Here is an example:
Mira tambe e kategoria Example images di Wikimedia Commons pa mas dato mediatiko tokante di e tema aki.


Please check the language, I have a bit of an atraso lingwístiko in Papiamentu. There are some artistic choices to be made regarding the location of links to the sister projects, and these require Admin privileges as well. Coor title dms also requires some artistic choices and admin access. So I left that to Ciell. ;) --Frank Geerlings (talk) 15:25, 27 yanüari 2021 (UTC)
Hi Frank Geerlings, masha danki!. Great input for the Papiamentu wikipedia to keep moving ahead. I made a minor adjustment to the template text. Most appreciated was that the "template" is identical to the Dutch version. This saves energy and time when translating articles from NL to PAP. Saludos!! Caribiana (talk) 18:54, 28 yanüari 2021 (UTC)
You're welcome! I have also had a look at {{Coor title dms}} but I was a bit overwhelmed with options. I think it might be better to start afresh instead of copying the dutch version, because that one is rather complicated. Also, could you perhaps help me translate the terms 'oosterlengte', 'westerlengte', 'noorderbreedte' and 'zuiderbreedte'? And finally: how would one write the following coordinate (that of Willemstad): "12° 6′ NB, 68° 56′ WL" is what is written in Dutch, how would you translate the NB and WL? Is the notation somehow different? I would expect not, but you never know... --Frank Geerlings (talk) 21:35, 28 yanüari 2021 (UTC)
Hi Frank Geerlings! Ik heb net grafieken van COVID-19 pandemic in Aruba gebruikt voor Coronacrisis in Aruba. Nu wil ik hetzelfde doen voor de corona-lemma's op de Papiamentse wiki. Kan jij me te hulp schieten met het aanmaken van een template:Graph:Chart? Caribiana (talk) 17:52, 7 febrüari 2021 (UTC)
Alsjeblieft Caribiana, ik heb dit sjabloon overzet vanaf enwiki. --Frank Geerlings (talk) 21:17, 7 febrüari 2021 (UTC)
Super bedankt!! Ik ben er nu al mee bezig. Met jouw hulp is het omzetten makkelijk en snel. We hoeven dus niet onder te doen voor de Engelse en Nederlandse wikis. Fijn dat je betrokken bent. Fijne avond! Caribiana (talk) 21:29, 7 febrüari 2021 (UTC)

Admin rights on this wiki[editá fuente]

Hi all,

My admin rights will expire in three days, on the 20th of February. Luckily, Caribeana and Frank Geerlings are willing to step forward and take up adminship on this wiki: they both speak Papiamentu and have a background in writing wiki articles, or development. I think they would make a great team, as they do already for the maintenance of this wiki!

I'd like to keep my rights for another 3 month so I can show them the ropes and help solve new problems they may encounter. For this, I again need the communities' support. So for you the question:
Can I get your support for another three months as an admin here?

Thanks! Ciell (talk) 11:05, 17 febrüari 2021 (UTC)

Yes. I wholeheartedly support Ciells request for another three months. And indeed, I am willing to take on admin duties, if there are no objections. I am happy that Ciell wants to back us up as we familiarize ourselves with this new role (or at least, new to me). --Frank Geerlings (talk) 11:41, 17 febrüari 2021 (UTC)
Desde 2018 mi ta aktivo komo skirbidó riba pap.wiki. Mi ta skirbi tantu na Papiamento komo Papiamentu. Mi ta duna mi voto di sosten na ambos Ciell i Frank Geerlings.

Masha danki pa e voto di sosten. Mi tabata skibi mi reakshon den ingles pasobra burókratanan por tambe komprondé esei.

Summary: Thank you for your vote of support. First response was in english for bureaucrats to understand, and I completely support Caribiana's candidacy. I am confident the (small) community will support us, otherwise please say so. --Frank Geerlings (talk) 15:15, 17 febrüari 2021 (UTC)
I support Ciell's request plus the requests by Caribiana and Frank Geerlings. Good luck with the new tasks ✌🏽. --Dwerg85 (talk) 00:45, 22 febrüari 2021 (UTC)
