[Wikimedia-l] ¿Qué te hace feliz esta semana? / What's making you happy this week? (Week of 11 March 2018)

Pine W
What's making me happy this week:

1. A recent entry in the Mozilla Blog discussed the possible value of
anonymity in decreasing bias in code review processes:
https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2018/03/08/gender-bias-code-reviews/

2. The opt-in "pingback" telemetry from MediaWiki installations, which is
available since March 2017, suggests that there are more than 40,000 unique
installations. See:
https://pingback.wmflabs.org,
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgPingback and
https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/MediaWiki_Pingback_Privacy_Statement.

There is also some news which is a little older and I am now getting around
to sharing here:

3. A research project has been started which aims to test whether vandal
activity can be detected in (near) real time, which may open opportunities
for interventions earlier in the process of publishing edits. See
https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/ai/2018-January/000221.html.

What's making you happy this week? You are welcome to write in any language.

1. Happy to rediscover Clipboard History plugin in Chrome. It saves
the frustration of hunting around, or rewording, a reusable snippet of
wikitext on Commons image pages.
2. As part of a Commons discussion on copyright, for the first time in
a couple of years created a flowchart, and experienced the same
pleasure in setting out logic in this old fashioned way as I used to
experience in the 1980s. ... Do kids learn about von Neumann these
days?

What's making me happy this week:

The old Wikipedia puzzle globe logo is not used on any Wikipedia any longer.

A bit of history, in case you aren't familiar with it:

The old logo was retired in 2010. Here's the image:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Wikipedia_Logo_1.0.png . It had
incorrectly drawn letters in some languages, and it was not rendered in
modern vector graphics. The new logo,
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg , corrects these
mistakes.

For various technical, community, and linguistic reasons it was not
actually immediately replaced in all the projects in 2010. User:Odder and
User:Nemo_bis, who care about language diversity, took it upon themselves
to replace the logos in all the languages. It took some time, and last week
this was finally accomplished.

The most prominent of the last languages that still had the old logo was
the Urdu Wikipedia.

There are still some logos to update because they have untranslated "The
Free Encyclopedia" text or issues with graphics rendering, but the old logo
is completely gone from the sites' headers.

Fae, I really like that flowchart. Is it linked somewhere that uploaders
can see it?

The flowchart is under discussion as part of deciding how to advise on
use of the proposed "120" year rule of thumb for old images without an
author's death date. So no, it's not ready for uploaders to see it
yet.

You can join in on the discussion about the chart and the new template
at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons_talk:Cut-off_date_for_PD-old_files#Summary
