Salve, Frontfrog!

Gratus aut grata in Vicipaediam Latinam acciperis! Ob contributa tua gratias agimus speramusque te delectari posse et manere velle.

Cum Vicipaedia nostra parva humilisque sit, paucae et exiguae sunt paginae auxilii, a quibus hortamur te ut incipias:

Si plura de moribus et institutis Vicipaedianis scire vis, tibi suademus, roges in nostra Taberna, vel roges unum ex magistratibus directe.

In paginis encyclopaedicis mos noster non est nomen dare, sed in paginis disputationis memento editis tuis nomen subscribere, litteris impressis --~~~~, quibus insertis nomen tuum et dies apparebit. Quamquam vero in paginis ipsis nisi lingua Latina uti non licet, in paginis disputationum qualibet lingua scribi solet. Quodsi quid interrogare velis, vel Taberna vel pagina disputationis mea tibi patebit. Ave! Spero te "Vicipaedianum" aut "Vicipaedianam" fieri velle!

De magnitudine imaginum[fontem recensere]

Gratias ago propter emendationes tuas.

Ratio mensurae specialis "221x221", a te impositae, nescio. Si comprimere aut augere necesse est, melior est mensuras visibiles non absolutas sed proportionales dare (e.g. |upright=0.75| seu |upright=1.5|) quia computatra et telephonia etc. inter se differunt.

quam est lectio vasa electionis?[fontem recensere]

@Andrew Dalby, quam est lectio vasa electionis? how is the selection of articles for election by months? Frontfrog (disputatio) 20:19, 20 Octobris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for your question. Currently our aim is to choose articles that are reasonably thorough, in good Latin, with appropriate sources and illustrations. Please make suggestions, and comment on suggestions made by others, at Disputatio Vicipaediae:Pagina mensis! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 18:46, 21 Octobris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you so much for your answer. Gratias tibi ago! Frontfrog (disputatio) 18:56, 21 Octobris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Andrew Dalby I would like to ask you if there will be a list of articles for the next year (possibly in december)? Frontfrog (disputatio) 11:09, 23 Octobris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Anyone can take on the task of inserting a monthly page on the Pagina prima. It does not have to be me. But, for the present, I am doing it.
In recent years I have not made a list for the whole year in advance: I have simply chosen, each month, one of the pages that were suggested. If anyone else took over the job, they could decide to make a list in advance! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 13:24, 23 Octobris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It will be good if you'll write a monthly list from November, anyway...Or maybe could I write it? Frontfrog (disputatio) 09:17, 29 Octobris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Certainly you can. You can write on the Vicipaedia:Taberna that you are making a list of future pages of the month, and you can invite more suggestions. It's best, I think, to use pages that have at least two voices in favour -- the editor who suggested it and one other who approved the suggestion.
I will put up a page for November -- OK? -- and while doing it I will make a list of the steps in the process. It's not difficult. Then, from December onwards, you could do it instead of me, if you want. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 13:50, 29 Octobris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree. And what article will be in November if it's not secret? :) Frontfrog (disputatio) 14:07, 29 Octobris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No, no secrets here :) I'll put up Saturnus (planeta). From December onwards, the choice can be yours. Is that OK for you? Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 20:10, 29 Octobris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you! Frontfrog (disputatio) 20:21, 29 Octobris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fuller notes on setting up a new Pagina Mensis[fontem recensere]

Brief instructions appear at the foot of Vicipaedia:Pagina mensis. Just in case this helps --

  1. strikeout pagename at Disputatio Vicipaediae:Pagina mensis
  2. go to the chosen page (A) in new tab
  3. go to Vicipaedia:Pagina mensis: from there, open the formula for the current month (C) and also, in new tab, create the new formula for the coming month (B) (a blank edit screen)
  4. copy some text from the beginning of A into B
  5. open C as if for editing
  6. Delete all footnotes from B completely. Compare B and C for length, and if B is much shorter, add more text from A
  7. Choose a good image from A. Copy it to the beginning of B and change the formatting to suit the pagina prima. Delete |thumb| and |upright| and insert |right|175px| or something similar
  8. Make the initial lemma of B a link to A (for example, change '''Saturnus''' to '''[[Saturnus (planeta)|Saturnus]]'''
  9. At the end of the text of B add ... and make it another link to A (for example, '''[[Saturnus (planeta)|...]]''')
  10. If the first sentence of B has too many alternative names, delete some of them to make that sentence readable
  11. Preview B: make sure that the image appears correctly on the right, the footnotes are completely gone, and the lemma and the final ... appear correctly as links
  12. Save B. Note: you will not see it in the pagina prima until the stroke of midnight!
  13. In A, add the formula {{FA stella}} at the end of the page
  14. At the top of the talk page of A add the formula {{PagMen|2021|12}}, adjusting for the actual year and month
  15. Edit Vicipaedia:Pagina mensis to add the name of A after the formula for the month
  16. Go to the Wikidata page for A. Edit the entry for the Latin page, adding a badge (select "pagina mensis")

That's it! It seems a lot, but it only takes a few minutes Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 17:29, 31 Octobris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks a lot! It seems difficult but I'll try it in next month. I'll try to navigate by the old nominations. Frontfrog (disputatio) 17:44, 31 Octobris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It sounds difficult, but I think, once you have done it once, it'll seem easy. I will be around at the end of the month so you can ask me if anything isn't clear.
I usually wait till day 29/30/31 before doing this. It's quite possible to do it earlier. The only difference is this: once you've done it, improvements that anyone makes to the text of page A will not appear in B. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 14:20, 1 Novembris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Andrew Dalby, please, check my changes and correct if it's needed. I hope I did the right thing. Frontfrog (disputatio) 22:22, 27 Novembris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It all looks perfect to me. If you're willing to go on doing this, I'm very happy. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 09:42, 28 Novembris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@UV is now back with us after a spell in the real world. UV generally checks the new page, early on the first day of the month, making any small corrections that seem to be needed, and this is often helpful. Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 09:46, 28 Novembris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have now added a description to the image - hopefully helpful ;-) Greetings, --UV (disputatio) 16:24, 28 Novembris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Happy New Year, Frontfrog! Andrew Dalby (disputatio) 17:24, 31 Decembris 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
