Википедиа:Даҳ чизе ки Шумо дар бораи Википедиа намедонистед

Мавод аз Википедиа — донишномаи озод

Даҳ чизе ки Шумо дар бораи Википедиа намедонистед рӯихати маълумоти кӯтоҳ дар бораи Википедиа мебошад, ки барои ашхоси бо лоиҳа таҷрибаи маҳдуд дошта, ба монади рӯзноманигорон, корбарони нав, ва хонандагони нав ҷамъ оварда шуда аст. Ин маълумот корбарони навро ба ҳайрат намеоварад, аммо барои дигарон барои каме маълумот пайдо кардан дар бораи кори мо кӯмак хоҳад расонд.

  1. Мо барои фурӯш нестем.
    Агар шумо барои харидани Википедиа аз Интернет азимҷуссаи маҳалаатон интизор ҳастед, худро дар мамоният нагузоред. Википедиа сомонаи ғайри тиҷорати буда аз тарафи Бунёди Викимедиа, ки ташкилоти ғайри-тиҷорати дар Ст. Петербург, Флорида 501(c)(3) дастгири мешавад. Мо тариқи кӯмаки молӣ ва грантҳо маблағгузори карда мешавем, ва мақсади мо ба ҳамаи одамони сайёра дастрас будани дониши озод, ба маънои ройгон/бепул ва беш аз он озод.

  2. Кор ва эҷодиёти моро ҳар кас бо риояи каме аз коидаҳо метавонад истифода кунад.
    Википедиа монанди гурӯҳҳои барномаҳои озод, ки (лоиҳаҳои GNU/Linux ва Mozilla Firefox) мебошад ва маҳдудияти ҳуқуқи муаллифро аз мақолаҳои худ аз байн бурд. Ба ҷои он, мо "литсензияи мундариҷаи озодро қабул кардем" (хусусан GFDL): ҳамаи матнҳо ва иншоҳо, ки аз тарафи корбарони мо сохта шудаанд озод ва ҳамеша барои нусхабардори, дигаргункуни ва паҳнкунӣ озод хоҳанд. Мо фақат мехоҳем, ки шумо барои ҳиссагузор пайванде ва ё номи онро ёдовар кунед ва барои беҳтар кардани маводҳо маҳдудият нагузоред. Бисёр аксҳо, наворҳо, ва дигар намуди медиа дар ин сомона зери литсензиҳои озод, ва ё оммавӣ оварда шудаанд. Фақат саҳифаи тасвири файлро барои бештар маълумот нигаред.

  3. Мо бо Эсперанто гуфтугӯ мекунем…
    …ва қариб 250 забонҳои дигар. Фақат қариб 70 аз ин қисмҳои забонии Википедиа дар ҳоли ҳозир беш аз 10,000 мақолаҳо доранд — ин маънои онро надорад, ки мо ҳаракат накарда истодаем. Мақолаҳои ҳар як забонҳо барои вироиш шурӯъ шудаанд ва назар ба дигар Википедиаҳо мудати чанд вақт аз тарафи тарҷумонони хоҳишманд тарҷума шуда истодаанд ва ҳеҷ гоҳ аз тарафи тарҷумон мошинҳо. The Wikimedia Foundation is supported by a growing network of independent chapter organizations, already in seven countries, which help us to raise awareness on the local level. In many countries, including the United States, Wikipedia is among the ten most popular websites.

  4. You can't actually change anything in Wikipedia...
    …you can only add to it. Wikipedia is a database with an eternal memory. An article you read today is just the current draft; every time it is changed, we keep both the new version and a copy of the old version. This allows us to compare different versions or restore older ones as needed. As a reader, you can even cite the specific copy of an article you are looking at. Just link to the article using the "Permanent link" at the bottom of the left menu, and your link will point to a page whose contents will never change. (However, if an article is deleted, your permanent link will no longer work unless you are an administrator.)

  5. We care deeply about the quality of our work.
    Wikipedia has a complex set of policies and quality control processes. Editors can patrol changes as they happen, monitor specific topics of interest, follow a user's track of contributions, tag problematic articles for further review, report vandals, discuss the merits of each article with other users, and much more. Our best articles are awarded "featured article" status, and problem pages are nominated for deletion. "WikiProjects" focus on improvements to particular topic areas. Really good articles may go into other media and be distributed to schools through Wikipedia 1.0. We care about getting things right, and we never stop thinking about new ways to do so.

  6. We do not expect you to trust us.
    It is in the nature of an ever-changing work like Wikipedia that, while some articles are of the highest quality of scholarship, others are admittedly complete rubbish. We are fully aware of this. We work hard to keep the ratio of the greatest to the worst as high as possible, of course, and to find helpful ways to tell you in what state an article currently is. Even at its best, Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, with all the limitations that entails. It is not a primary source. We ask you not to criticize Wikipedia indiscriminately for its content model but to use it with an informed understanding of what it is and what it isn't. Also, as some articles may contain errors, please do not use Wikipedia to make critical decisions.

  7. We are not alone.
    Wikipedia is part of a growing movement for free knowledge that is beginning to permeate science and education. The Wikimedia Foundation directly operates eight sister projects to the encyclopedia: Wiktionary (a dictionary and thesaurus), Wikisource (a library of source documents), Wikimedia Commons (a media repository of more than one million images, videos, and sound files), Wikibooks (a collection of textbooks and manuals), Wikiversity (an interactive learning resource), Wikinews (a citizen journalism news site), Wikiquote (a collection of quotations), and Wikispecies (a directory of all forms of life). Like Wikipedia itself, all these projects are freely licensed and open to contributions.

  8. We are only collectors.
    Articles in Wikipedia are not signed, and contributors are unpaid volunteers. Whether you claim to be a tenured professor, use your real name, or prefer to remain pseudonymous, your edits and arguments will be judged on their merits. We require that verifiable sources be cited for all significant claims, and we do not permit editors to publicize their personal conclusions when writing articles. All editors must follow a neutral point of view; they must only collect relevant opinions which can be traced to reliable sources.

  9. We're neither a dictatorship nor any other political system.
    The Wikimedia Foundation is controlled by its Board of Trustees, the majority of whose members the Bylaws require to be chosen from its community. The Board and Wikimedia Foundation staff do not take a role in editorial issues, and projects are self-governing and consensus-driven. Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales occasionally acts as a final arbiter on the English Wikipedia, but his influence is based on respect, not power; it takes effect only where the community does not challenge it. Wikipedia is transparent and self-critical; controversies are debated openly and even documented within Wikipedia itself when they cross a threshold of significance.

  10. We're in it for the long haul.
    We want Wikipedia to be around at least a hundred years from now, if it does not turn into something even more significant. Everything about Wikipedia is engineered towards that end: our content licensing, our organization and governance, our international focus, our fundraising strategy, our use of open source software, and our never-ending effort to achieve our vision. We want you to imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge. That is our commitment — and we need your help.
