:gem:Dear community members!

An AMA-session was held yesterday in the Russian-speaking segment of Free TON Wiki. The following decisions were made during the discussion:

:exclamation:All articles will be checked for machine translation. Editors will take into account only the versions of articles posted on the Wiki before 26.10.2020.

:exclamation:Articles of new authors will be checked before they are paid at the contest.

Stages of verification:
• Manual editors’ check for machine translation (with the help of special sites)
• Articles in which the percentage of machine translation exceeds 90% need to be corrected
• Machine-translated articles will be marked on Wiki

There is also the question of booking translation articles: what should translators do if one person selects all the articles in the language section? Soon we will have a vote on this topic.

:fire:New languages on Free TON Wiki

Nihao to the Chinese community!

The new language section is already available on Free TON Wiki:

The further, the better.
Stay tuned!

:rocket: The migration to new Team Report is complete!

Now the general Team Report is here. This is a pivot spreadsheet and only a few editors have access to it. Links from there lead to personal spreadsheets of team members.

Here are the benefits of the new format:

:black_small_square:Each team member now has their own reporting spreadsheet
:black_small_square:It is not necessary for everyone to edit one common huge sheet together
:black_small_square:The new solution will provide simultaneous submission of reports for hundreds of authors
:black_small_square:No need to ask support to add multiple new lines to your report and now you have unlimited lines!
:black_small_square:Now there are no complicated horizontal scrolls: you just add new entries from top to bottom
:black_small_square:Accidental changes by third parties and vandalism are excluded
:black_small_square:Only you and the editors have access to your report (but anyone can see it)
:black_small_square:It will be much easier and faster for editors to check your work

:small_red_triangle:IMPORTANT! Almost all of the team members already have access to their personal report spreadsheets. First of all, open the general Team Report, find yourself in the list and go to your personal spreadsheet. Check that you can edit it. If so, there is nothing more you need to do, congratulations! If not, then write in the chat about your problem.

:point_right: Each new author will need to require the creation of their own personal spreadsheet so that you can prepare an application with your work. We will tell you how to do this later. Stay in touch!

PS: The old Team Report will be sent to the archive.

:gem:Dear community members!

Recently, members of our community discussed the question of mass page reservation.

:bar_chart: We have conducted two polls on this topic:

03.11.2020 community voted on the topic of mass page reservation and decided to introduce *a one-time limit of up to 3 articles
07.10.2020 one more poll was held, according to which authors who have selected a large number of articles (before the voting results) can leave a maximum of 10 articles and reduce it to 3 articles in the near future

:bangbang: Important: a one-time limit of up to 3 articles for all authors and translators is working in Wiki right now! Please notice that one cannot exceed this limit starting from the next reporting period.

*A one-time limit means that the author has made X articles, uploaded it to Wiki and only then can reserve the same number of articles (or less) again.

■ translation: 10 - 12 - 15
■ rewriting: 10 - 12 - 15
■ chief editing: 1000 - 1500 - 2000
■ tech support: 1000 - 1500 - 2000
■ improvement service: 40 ton / 8-hour working day
■ administrative support: 120 ton / 8-hour working day
■ rates for copypaste are excluded

Besides, for all WRCs, we set a maximum reward cap of 5,000 Tons per one contestant if the WRC is restarted approximately once a month. In case the WRC restarts with a different frequency,then this limit must be changed proportionally.

:speech_balloon: You can discuss the passed proposal on the forum

:exclamation: IMPORTANT: these changes are effective immediately and will apply to all FUTURE Wiki Renewal Contests. Rates and rewards for the current contest remain unchanged!


Dear community members!

■ Don’t translate articles that haven’t been approved yet

■ Articles can be translated only after the review editors’ approval - in the near future we will develop a full mechanism for checking articles

■ Submissions with translations of disapproved articles will be rejected during voting

■ You can see if the article is approved in the List of needed articles
