VisualEditor newsletter—November 2014[edit]

VisualEditor-logo.svg
Screenshot on an iPad, showing how to switch from one editor to the other
Did you know?

VisualEditor is also available on the mobile version of Wikipedia. Login and click the pencil icon to open the page you want to edit. Click on the gear-shaped settings in the upper-right corner, to pick which editor to use. Choose "Edit" to use VisualEditor, or "Edit source" to use the wikitext editor.

It will remember whether you used wikitext or VisualEditor, and use the same editor the next time you edit an article.

The user guide has information about how to use VisualEditor. Not all features are available in Mobile Web.

Since the last newsletter, the Editing Team has fixed many bugs and requests, and worked on support for editing tables and for using non-Latin languages. Their weekly updates are posted on Mediawiki.org. Informal notes from the recent quarterly review were posted on Meta.

Recent improvements[edit]

The French Wikipedia should see better search results for links, templates, and media because the new search engine was turned on for everyone there. This change is expected at the Chinese and German Wikipedias next week, and eventually at the English Wikipedia.

The "pawn" system has been mostly replaced. Bugs in this system sometimes added a chess pawn character to wikitext. The replacement provides better support for non-Latin languages, with full support hopefully coming soon.

VisualEditor is now provided to editors who use Internet Explorer 10 or 11 on desktop and mobile devices. Internet Explorer 9 is not supported yet.

The keyboard shortcuts for items in the toolbar's menus are now shown in the menus. VisualEditor will replace the existing design with a new theme from the User Experience / Design group. The appearance of dialogs has already changed in one Mobile version. The appearance on desktops will change soon. (You can see a developer preview of the old "Apex" design and the new "MediaWiki" theme which will replace it.)

Several bugs were fixed for internal and external links. Improvements to MediaWiki's search solved an annoying problem: If you searched for the full name of the page or file that you wanted to link, sometimes the search program could not find the page. A link inside a template, to a local page that does not exist, will now show red, exactly as it does when reading the page. Due to a error, for about two weeks this also affected all external links inside templates. Opening an auto-numbered link node like [20] with the keyboard used to open the wrong link tool. These problems have all been fixed.

TemplateData[edit]

The tool for quickly editing TemplateData will be deployed to all Wikimedia Foundation wikis on Thursday, 6 November.  This tool is already available on the biggest 40 Wikipedias, and now all wikis will have access to it. This tool makes it easier to add TemplateData to the template's documentation.  When the tool is enabled, it will add a button above every editing window for a template (including documentation subpages). To use it, edit the template or a subpage, and then click the "Manage TemplateData" button at the top.  Read the help page for TemplateData. You can test the TemplateData editor in a sandbox at Mediawiki.org. Remember that TemplateData should be placed either on a documentation subpage or on the template page itself. Only one block of TemplateData will be used per template.

You can use the new autovalue setting to pre-load a value into a template. This can be used to substitute dates, as in this example, or to add the most common response for that parameter. The autovalue can be easily overridden by the editor, by typing something else in the field.

In TemplateData, you may define a parameter as "required". The template dialog in VisualEditor will warn editors if they leave a "required" parameter empty, and they will not be able to delete that parameter. If the template can function without this parameter, then please mark it as "suggested" or "optional" in TemplateData instead.

Looking ahead[edit]

Basic support for inserting tables and changing the number of rows and columns in tables will appear next Wednesday. Advanced features, like dragging columns to different places, will be possible later. The VisualEditor team plans to add auto-fill features for citations soon. To help editors find the most important items more quickly, some items in the toolbar menus will be hidden behind a "More" item, such as "underlining" in the styling menu. The appearance of the media search dialog will improve, to make picking between possible images easier and more visual. The team posts details about planned work on the VisualEditor roadmap.

The user guide will be updated soon to add information about editing tables. The translations for most languages except Spanish, French, and Dutch are significantly out of date. Please help complete the current translations for users who speak your language. Talk to us if you need help exporting the translated guide to your wiki.

You can influence VisualEditor's design. Tell the VisualEditor team what you want changed during the office hours via IRC. The next sessions are on Wednesday, 19 November at 16:00 UTC and on Wednesday 7 January 2015 at 22:00 UTC. You can also share your ideas at mw:VisualEditor/Feedback.

Also, user experience researcher Abbey Ripstra is looking for editors to show her how they edit Wikipedia. Please sign up for the research program if you would like to hear about opportunities.

DYK nomination of Samaritans Radar[edit]

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of Samaritans Radar at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and some issues with it may need to be clarified. Please review the comment(s) underneath your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. Thank you for contributing to Did You Know! Edwardx (talk) 10:31, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know, Edwardx. I've fixed the issue listed on the DYK nomination. —Tom Morris (talk) 10:41, 8 November 2014 (UTC)
Trivial issue of course, but I find it looks better if we can find something, just to show that we've done a proper review. Edwardx (talk) 10:53, 8 November 2014 (UTC)
I started an article on Tom Morris yesterday. Will put it up for DYK if I can find enough to get to 1500 chars. Edwardx (talk) 11:02, 8 November 2014 (UTC)
I believe I may have a conflict of interest on that article. It would be wrong for me to use my administrative or editorial powers on Wikipedia to advance a homographic agenda. —Tom Morris (talk) 11:24, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

The Metaphysics of Ebola[edit]

Please read what I wrote carefully.

The CMD of LUTH says when he used Oral Rehydration to treat early stage EVD patients "all of them survived". That as far as I can see is a cure for early stage EVD.

What follows from this is that EVD can be treated 100% successfully by early detection.

With regard to EIS there are two possibilities. Because it is a scientific theory (1) it will be falsified; (2) it will not be falsified but eventually accepted. In either case I would have acted correctly by putting forward the only theory so far that provides a formal cause for different outcomes in EVD. Have you considered the implications of your ACTION if the theory is eventually accepted.


So what was there to object to in the entry in Talk:Ebola virus disease?

The EVD article currently says: “No specific treatment is currently approved. However, survival is improved by early supportive care with rehydration and symptomatic treatment”. In the Nigerian outbreak what I noticed was that survival was 100% for the last group of 10 patients who used oral rehydration. Surely it is too early to have peer-reviewed articles. But there are press accounts: [1] Quote: “So, once there is a rise in temperature, we had an evacuation team, properly kitted at the centre, who would now go and evacuate the contacts developing the symptoms and all the contacts that developed symptoms that we got on time, all of them survived.” My understanding of this is that the Chief Medical Director of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital is saying that early stage EVD has a specific treatment that is 100% successful. Since no drugs or vaccines were used, the question is: what cured 100% of the patients? How can an article on EVD not say that if a person gets early treatment they have an almost 100% chance of survival? The EIS hypothesis is not a fringe theory it is the only theory that in my opinion correctly addresses cause and effect. EIS is not proven but it should inform the EVD article where it is confirmed by a reputable source in this case CMD LUTH.

Ibolachi: When Professor Osibogun has published his findings in a reputable, peer-reviewed scientific journal, then it might be worth discussing his findings. Until then, they fail WP:MEDRS. —Tom Morris (talk) 12:01, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
Having one degree of separation from someone who died of ebola (that is knowing someone a close relative of whose died in the Nigerian outbreak) I followed that story extremely closely. Every person in the world should be overjoyed to discover that there is now a protocol that will save the lives of everyone (except perhaps the index case) in the next outbreak of ebola anywhere: measure temperature, use oral rehydration on the first onset of fever. Oral rehydration therapy is already on Wikipedia, a link to a peer-reviewed account of the Nigerian outbreak that is already on Wikipedia is here[2]. I thought everyone had grasped what was first achieved in Nigeria and then replicated in the USA. 100% survival for all early stage EVD patients. --Ibolachi (talk) 21:42, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Copyright checks when performing AfC reviews[edit]

Hello Tom Morris. This message is part of a mass mailing to people who appear active in reviewing articles for creation submissions. First of all, thank you for taking part in this important work! I'm sorry this message is a form letter – it really was the only way I could think of to covey the issue economically. Of course, this also means that I have not looked to see whether the matter is applicable to you in particular.

The issue is in rather large numbers of copyright violations ("copyvios") making their way through AfC reviews without being detected (even when easy to check, and even when hallmarks of copyvios in the text that should have invited a check, were glaring). A second issue is the correct method of dealing with them when discovered.

If you don't do so already, I'd like to ask for your to help with this problem by taking on the practice of performing a copyvio check as the first step in any AfC review. The most basic method is to simply copy a unique but small portion of text from the draft body and run it through a search engine in quotation marks. Trying this from two different paragraphs is recommended. (If you have any question about whether the text was copied from the draft, rather than the other way around (a "backwards copyvio"), the Wayback Machine is very useful for sussing that out.)

If you do find a copyright violation, please do not decline the draft on that basis. Copyright violations need to be dealt with immediately as they may harm those whose content is being used and expose Wikipedia to potential legal liability. If the draft is substantially a copyvio, and there's no non-infringing version to revert to, please mark the page for speedy deletion right away using {{db-g12|url=URL of source}}. If there is an assertion of permission, please replace the draft article's content with {{subst:copyvio|url=URL of source}}.

Some of the more obvious indicia of a copyvio are use of the first person ("we/our/us..."), phrases like "this site", or apparent artifacts of content written for somewhere else ("top", "go to top", "next page", "click here", use of smartquotes, etc.); inappropriate tone of voice, such as an overly informal tone or a very slanted marketing voice with weasel words; including intellectual property symbols (™,®); and blocks of text being added all at once in a finished form with no misspellings or other errors.

I hope this message finds you well and thanks again you for your efforts in this area. Best regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 02:20, 18 November 2014 (UTC).
