p. 3: What is Wikipedia? / free content

Kas ir Vikipēdija?

Wikipedia — the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit — is one of the largest collaborative projects in history. With millions of articles and in hundreds of languages, Wikipedia is read by hundreds of millions of people on a regular basis.

A lot of content already exists on Wikipedia, but many important topics have poor coverage and some have no article at all. Wikipedia relies on contributors like you to keep information current, expand short “stub” articles, and create new articles on topics not already covered in your language Wikipedia. Contributions you make to Wikipedia can enlighten hundreds, thousands, or even millions of people worldwide.

When you make an edit to Wikipedia, you're joining a community of hundreds of thousands of people — Wikipedians — who have freely contributed their knowledge to Wikipedia. What Wikipedians are doing has the potential to change the world. But there’s still a very long way to go before we collect the sum of all knowledge. That’s why we need your help.

What you contribute to Wikipedia is free content and becomes part of the commons. It may be edited and reused by others under a free license.

Adrianne Wadewitz-6727.jpg

Kāpēc labot Vikipēdiju?

Today, I’m carrying on my grandfather's life work and his passion for recording local history and heritage. The difference is I have a tool my grandfather did not — Wikipedia.

Iolanda Pensa-229.jpg

We want a world that is more open, more educated, and more free. We want a world where knowledge is available to anyone that seeks it.

Ravan Jaafar Altaie.jpg

If what you write is accurate and well written, it will be read by large numbers of people every day. (If not, it will quickly disappear.)

Kāpēc labot Vikipēdiju?

When I have kids, I want them to know Nepal’s culture and our rich history, and to learn it in our own language — and Wikipedia is making that possible.

Ganesh Paudel-4575.jpg

When I searched on Wikipedia, there was nothing. So I decided to write the article myself. To date, more than 18,000 people have read my article. Some have even added their own information and sources.

p. 8: Preparing to edit / content rules

Sagatavošanās labošanai

Vikipēdiju var labot ikviens, bet ir daži pamatnoteikumi. Šie ir daži no svarīgākajiem, kuriem jāseko, uzsākot labošanu:

Neitrāls skatu punkts

Vikipēdijā viss ir jāapraksta no neitrāla skatu punkta. Rakstā nedrīkst pieņemt nostāju, bet tam ir jāapraksta — precīzi un bez aizspriedumiem — visi nozīmīgākie skatu punkti par tēmu, kuri publicēti uzticamos avotos. Vikipēdijas rakstos neiederas argumentācija un propaganda.

Nekādu oriģinālu pētījumu

Simply put, Wikipedia is not a place to publish original ideas. Rather, you should summarize what others have published in reliable sources about the topic. Articles may not contain any new analysis, and they should not synthesize published materials to reach broader conclusions beyond what the individual sources say.

Autortiesības un plaģiātisms

Since all contributions are freely licensed, no editor owns any article; all of your contributions can and will be edited and redistributed. Except for brief quotations, copying content from copyrighted sources onto Wikipedia is not allowed. Whether direct copying or close paraphrasing, plagiarism and copyright violation are disruptive and time-consuming for volunteers to clean up. It’s important that all content you contribute to Wikipedia is written in your own words. (Public domain and freely licensed content may also be added to Wikipedia as long as it is properly attributed.)

Uzticami avoti

Information in Wikipedia needs to be verifiable, based on reliable published sources. You should include citations for the information you add to the encyclopedia, so that others can check it for themselves. The most reliable sources for Wikipedia are third-party sources with a reputation for fact-checking, such as books published by academic presses, peer-reviewed academic journals, and international newspapers. You should be using sources that represent significant viewpoints, rather than one-off studies or fringe work. Try to find the best and most reliable sources available on the topic.

Interešu konflikts

Ja Jums pastāv interešu konflikts par konkrētu tēmu — piemēram darba devēju vai pārstāvēto organizāciju — Jums būtu jāizvairās no ar to saistīto rakstu labošanas.

Šīs politikas un principus mēs esam izstrādājuši gadu gaitā tā, lai mēs būtu droši, ka Vikipēdija ir pēc iespējas uzticamāka un noderīgāka.

Adrianne Wadewitz-6727.jpg

P. 9 Encyclopedic Writing Style

Kas ir enciklopēdiskais stils?

Writing in an encyclopedic style and a formal tone is important when adding new content to Wikipedia. Instead of essay-like, argumentative, or opinionated writing, Wikipedia articles should have a straightforward, just-the-facts style. Here are examples of the do’s and don’ts of encyclopedic writing.

Neatbilstoši

Britannica un enciklopēdiju nākotne

Encyclopædia Britannica, although a celebrated and historically significant encyclopedia, has little relevance in modern society. Instead, most experts agree that the future of the encyclopedia genre belongs to Wikipedia and other wiki encyclopedias — created by regular folks like you and me. Ironically, while it was a great influence on Jimmy Wales and the intrepid new generation of amateur encyclopedists who created — and continue to create — Wikipedia, Britannica in recent years has come to symbolize everything wrong about the old ways of creating and distributing knowledge: top-down control, unaccountable gatekeepers who decide what does and does not merit coverage, copyright restrictions and high prices that limit access to the wealthy, and — in its current online form — intrusive advertising that undercuts the reliability and usability of its content.

No kā jāizvairās

Neveidojiet jaunus esejas formāta rakstus vai sadaļas

Nestrukturējiet savu tekstu kā argumentāciju.

Neizmantojiet viltīgus tekstus (kā “vairums ekspertu ir vienisprātis” vai “daļa cilvēku apgalvo”).

Neizmantojiet sarunvalodu vai slengu.

Neizmanto izpušķojošus terminus (piemēram, “lielisks”, “neparasts” vai “bezbailīgs”).

Don’t inject personal opinion into the writing.

Neizmantojiet pārmērīgi sarežģītu valodu vai teikumu struktūru.
Atbilstoši

Kopš 1990. gadu sākuma Britannica ir saskārusies ar jauniem izaicinājumiem no digitāliem informācijas avotiem. Strauji mainīgās sfērās kā zinātne, tehnoloģija, politika, kultūra un modernā vēsture Britannica ir problēmas tikt līdzi laikam. Šo problēmu pirmais sistemātiski analizēja tās bijušais redaktors Volters Justs.[1] Lai arī Britannica šobrīd ir pieejama gan multimediju formā, gan Internetā, tās pārākumu ir izaicinājušas citas tiešsaistes enciklopēdijas kā Vikipēdija.[2]

Dariet

Izmantojiet vienkāršu valodu

Esiet īss

Citē avotus, lai pamatotu faktuālus apgalvojumus

Piedēvē viedokļus cilvēkiem, kas tos ir pauduši

Izveiries no secinājumiem, izņemot gadījumus, kad var norādīt precīzu avotu

p. 10: VisualEditor / structure of an article

[This page and the following page show edit mode for the same article in VisualEditor and wikitext, respectively. The VisualEditor side focuses on the structure of a typical article, while the wikitext side shows the wikicode syntax for typical page elements.

Editing Wikipedia screenshot p 10, Encyclopedia with VisualEditor top.png
Editing Wikipedia screenshot p 10, Encyclopedia body section.png
Editing Wikipedia screenshot p 10, Encyclopedia see also and notes.png
Editing Wikipedia screenshot p 10, Encyclopedia references and external links.png

Labošana ar Vizuālo redaktoru

With VisualEditor, you can see what your changes will look like as you edit, so you can focus on the content. Just click on the parts you want to change and start editing.

Labošanas rīkjosla

Labošanas režīmā rīkjosla ļauj formatēt tekstu, atsauces, attēlus un īpašus lapas elementus, sauktus par veidnēm (piemēram, infokastes daudzu rakstu sākumā). Kad labošana ir pabeigta, nospiediet pogu "Saglabāt lapu".

Ievada sadaļa

The first sentence provides a definition of the topic, and the lead section goes on to summarize the key points covered in the article. This is the only section without a heading.

Attēli

Brīvi licencētus attēlus un citus multimediju failus Vikipēdijas rakstiem var pievienot no Vikikrātuves (Wikimedia Commons).

Citāti

Inline citations in the body of the article are used to show where the information in each part of the text came from. The citation details appear as footnotes at the end.

Veidnes

Atkalizmantojami fragmenti, saukti par veidnēm, tiek izmantoti, lai informāciju noformētu standarta formā un ievietotu tādas lietas kā paziņojumus lietotājiem par raksta problēmām.

Raksta pamatteksts

Headings — and sometimes sub-headings — break the article up into sections, and are used to generate the table of contents. Each section usually covers some significant aspect of the topic, so that readers can jump right to the information they are looking for.

Pielikumi un piezīmes

Pēc raksta pamatteksta seko sadaļas ar papildu informāciju, tādu kā saistītie Vikipēdijas raksti ("Skatīt arī"), piezīmes ar izmantotajiem avotiem ("Atsauces") un saraksts ar citām tīmekļa vietnēm, kura lasītāji varētu apmeklēt papildu informācijai ("Ārējās saites").

p. 11: Wiki markup

[This page consists of a simplified and excerpted version of the wiki markup for the same article as on the facing page. Most of the content is blurred out, but the example elements of markup are not. Callouts explain the most import markup syntax.]

Editing Wikipedia p 11, wiki markup illustration 6.png

Labošana ar vikitekstu

Wiki markup is the original form of editing Wikipedia articles (and on some browsers, it will be the only form available). It gives you precise control over the content and appearance of the page, once you understand how it works. Some of the underlying wiki markup for an article is pictured below. See how many of the corresponding elements you can find in the VisualEditor illustration.

Attēls

Double square brackets around the title of a photo from Wikimedia Commons will insert the image. Pipes separate optional parameters to control how the image is displayed. The most common way is with two parameters: the word “thumb” to use the standard thumbnail format, and a descriptive caption that appears beneath the image.

[[File:Example.jpg|thumb|caption]]

Treknraksts

Trīs apostrofi pirms un pēc teksta padara to par treknrakstu. Parasti pirmajā teikumā raksta temats tiek noformēts treknrakstā.

'''teksts treknrakstā'''

Citāts

Opening and closing ref tags are used to cite a source. An automatically-numbered superscript appears at the location of the ref tags, and the content appears as a footnote in the references section.

<ref> citāta teksts </ref>

Iekšējā saite

Dubultas kvadrātiekavas, kuras ietver terminu, veido saiti uz rakstu ar šādu nosaukumu. Pievienojot vertikālas svītriņas simbolu un tekstu pirms aizverošajām iekavām, var mainīt attēlojamās saites tekstu.

[[raksta nosaukums|teksts]]

Kursīvs

Divi apostrofa simboli uzsāk un nobeidz teksta segmetnu kursīvā.

''teksts kursīvā''

Virsraksts

A pair of double equals signs mark a line as a heading. Triple equals signs make a sub-heading.

==Virsraksts==

Veidne

Double braces are used for templates, which are reusable page elements that serve many purposes. The first item after the opening braces is the template’s name. Pipes separate the parameters, which are additional inputs that can change the way the template works or what it displays.

{{veidnes nosaukums|parametrs}}

Atsauces

Atsauču iezīme vai atbilstoša veidne norāda atsauču saraksta atrašanās vietu — visbiežāk sadaļā “Piezīmes” vai “Atsauces”.

<references />

Ārējā saite

Viena kvadrātiekava, kurai seko URL, atstarpe, saites teksts un aizverošā kvadrātiekava izveido parastu hipersaiti. Parasti tās izmanto tikai atsauču vai vai “Ārējo saišu” sadaļā.

[http://www.piemers.com teksts]

Kategorija

At the end of an article, double square brackets around a string that starts with Category: adds an article to the specified category. Categories organize Wikipedia articles into related sets.

[[Kategorija:Kaut kas]]

pp. 12-13: Adding content, step by step

Satura pievienošana soli pa solim

These images show how one contributor added new information to the article on Penny Cyclopaedia.

Šis raksts pirms labošanas...

Editing Wikipedia screenshot p 12, Penny Cyclopaedia before edit.png

...un raksts pēc izmaiņu saglabāšanas.

Editing Wikipedia screenshot p 12, Penny Cyclopaedia after edit.png

This image shows what the contributor added and the markup they used. Follow these steps and you too can add content to a Wikipedia article.

1. solis: Izvēlieties tematu, par ko vēlaties rakstīt.

2. solis: Atrodiet uzticamu avotu, kurš apraksta tematu labāk kā esošais Vikipēdijas raksts.

3. solis: Jautrākā daļa. Klikšķiniet uz pogas "Labot"!

4. solis: Pievienojiet kādu trūkstošo informāciju. Izmantojot atrasto avotu, apkopojiet vēlamo informāciju un pievienojiet, noformulējot to saviem vārdiem.

5. solis: Sava jaunā teksta fragmenta beigās pievienojiet atsauci. Labošanas rīkjoslā — neatkarīgi no tā, vai izmantojiet vikitekstu vai Vizuālo redaktoru — klikšķiniet uz ikonas "citēt", lai atsauktos uz savu avotu.

6. solis: Laukā "Izmaiņu kopsavilkums" pievienojiet īsu aprakstu par labojumā veiktajām izmaiņām.

(With VisualEditor, you’ll be prompted for an edit summary after you click Save page.) The edit summary helps other editors understand what you are doing.

7. solis: Tagad ir laiks saglabāt izmaiņas. Neaizmirstiet noklikšķināt uz pogas "Saglabāt lapu".

Editing Wikipedia screenshot p 13, during edit of Penny Cyclopaedia.png

Neuztraucieties. Ja jūs pieļaujat kļūdu, vienmēr var veikt vēl vienu izmaiņu vai atjaunot raksta iepriekšējo versiju.

p. 14: Interacting / user pages / user talk

Lietotāju lapas un diskusiju lapas

Wikipedia has other types of pages beyond articles. As you start editing, you might also want to create your User page to let others get to know you a little bit.

Editing Wikipedia screenshot p 14, username redlink.png

At the top right (if you are logged in) you will see your username, which you can click to reach your User page. Links to pages that do not exist — such as your User page if you have not created it yet — are colored red, instead of the typical blue.

Editing Wikipedia screenshot p 14, creating Ephraim Chambers userpage.png

If you click the Create button on one of these pages, you can start from a blank page. A User page is a place to write a little bit about yourself, to give other contributors an idea of who you are and what you’re interested in. You can share as much or as little as you like.

When you Save the page, your red link will turn blue!

Editing Wikipedia screenshot p 14, Ephraim Chambers userpage.png

You also have a User Talk page, where other contributors can leave messages for you. If you want to contact another contributor, you can navigate to their Talk page and leave a message at the bottom.

You should sign your messages on Talk pages; clicking the Signature button in the edit toolbar will insert four tildes ( ~ ~ ~ ~ ), the special wiki markup for inserting your username along with the date and time of your message.

Editing Wikipedia, pixelated signature icon.png

Šī ikona labošanas rīkjoslā ir paraksta poga


p. 15: article talk / etiquette

Saziņa ar kopienu

Every article has its own Talk page, too. These Talk pages can be used to make suggestions, post new sources, point out problems, and discuss changes that contributors disagree about.

Editing Wikipedia screenshot p 15, Encyclopedia talk discussion.png
Editing Wikipedia screenshot p 15, Encyclopedia talk with Notification.png

Look, a new Notification! These let you know when someone mentions your username, thanks you for an edit, or leaves a message on your User Talk page.

Adrianne Wadewitz-6727.jpg

One important guideline for community discussions on Wikipedia is to be respectful and civil. Even if you get into disagreements, you should assume good faith on the part of other contributors. They almost always have the same goal you do — to make Wikipedia better. Keep the discussions focused on content, rather than making them about individual contributors.

p. 16 mobile editing

Mobile editing

In addition to the traditional desktop interface, Wikipedia has a streamlined mobile version that you can use to both read and edit. Just visit Wikipedia on your smartphone or tablet, then log in.

More about English Wikipedia

Each language version of Wikipedia is different (although there is a lot in common across languages as well). These are some of the things specific to English Wikipedia that you may find useful.

In general, only freely licensed or public domain images can be used to illustrate Wikipedia articles, and these should be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons (commons.wikimedia.org). However, limited exceptions are allowed on English Wikipedia under the non-free content rules | shortcut WP:NONFREE for things like album covers. Non-free images uploaded to Wikipedia without a clear justification under the rules will be deleted.

Vikiprojekti

WikiProjects are groups of contributors who have a common interest when it comes to editing Wikipedia. Browsing the existing WikiProjects | shortcut WP:WIKIPROJECT and joining ones that interest you can be a good way to find things you want to work on and connect with other Wikipedians.

Wikipedia 1.0 assessments

WikiProjects on English Wikipedia have a system for rating the quality and importance of articles, known as the Wikipedia 1.0 assessments | shortcut WP:ASSESS . For quality, these ratings go from Stub (just the beginnings of an article) to Start to C-class to B-class, and then the formally reviewed ratings of Good article, A-class, and Featured article.

You can see the ratings for an article at the top of its Talk page, and most WikiProjects maintain a table showing how many articles related to that WikiProject have each rating. Browsing WikiProjects for Stub and Start articles is a good way to find new topics to work on.


p. 18: article quality / additional resources

Vikipēdijas rakstu kvalitātes izvērtēšana

The quality of Wikipedia articles varies widely; many are very good, but some lack depth and clarity, contain bias, or are out of date. In general, high-quality articles have these elements:

  • a lead section that gives an easy-to-understand overview,
  • a clear structure,
  • balanced coverage,
  • neutral content, and
  • reliable sources.


Additional information about article quality is available by consulting the “Evaluating Wikipedia” brochure (see below).
