Wikimania audio feeds
Good morning sir, I was told to speak with you regarding this year's live audio stream. I've set up a page explaining my ideas on how to do it (at ) but I need a few computers. I was told that you're working on the Taipei team, I was wondering how the audio systems are set up and if it would be possible for a computer to be tied in to the audio system and if I could run IceS on it. I'm not sure where I would get such a computer, but if there is one already teid into the sound system and running linux, this wouldn't use too much CPU or bandwidth. Do you know if we will be able to do this, and how? ST47 21:49, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

- I want an answer here. a quick one. --Jollyroger 11:07, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
I expect to read the detailed financial balance of Wikimania the day right after the closing of the event. Unfortunately, you don't even have a designate for Budget and Accounting (cashier; accountant; auditing). Nice!
Who should I ask a copy of the document, which should include a detailed in/out cashflow table?
Will the contracts be disclosed as official agreements (possibly in english)? I think they should, as part of the transparency policy of the Foundation.
This is the answer of Delphine / Notafish and of Anthere in a discussion on it.wiki:
- JR: I want to read the financial balance of the event, to see where sponsorship money are gone, where attendees money will go and where foundation money are going
- D:Ask for it when the event is over.
- A:I will make sure financial statements are provided. I know them, I have been working on them, I am spending time right now to make sure to find scholarship money for as many people as possible, and I can ensure that many people are trying to make their best for the event to be a success
Of course, "when the event is over" means to me "6 august, 0.00 GMT". --Jollyroger 07:42, 27 April 2007 (UTC)
Removed from your userpage
This is the response to the accusations you make on your userpage. Since most of them are deliberately unaccurate, I had to write a response:
- I feel compelled to add a note here, since you are manipulating my words: "to (deliberately) ignore something" is not a "charge of ignorance". There is no shame is ignoring something by will: it is a precise choice. So I am not saying the board "is ignorant"; I am saying that they ignored real sponsorships from insitution to choose unknown supporters (that partly vanished after the bid. I am still waiting answers about accomodation availability and costs, flight prices and economical sponsorships. --Jollyroger 07:25, 27 April 2007 (UTC)
You promised "free of charge wi-fi" thanks to the "local sponsors", now is it just for Wikimedia and not for Attendees? Will attendees have to pay for wi-fi? Another misunderstanding? --Jollyroger 15:54, 27 April 2007 (UTC) still waiting lot of answers: wy accomodations is said to be free of charge, while attendees have to pay?)
I am willing to
我非常樂意幫忙呀!!只是我不知道要怎麼協助，可能是因為我不太主動吧~~whatever~如果有任何想法或idea需要協助都歡迎找我~如果有任何討論我也非常樂意參加!!惟獨要外出實際碰面的會議可能沒辦法~畢竟我現在還有法定代理人~而且我自己也怕怕的。BTY，請教一下。我們有統一的工作語言嗎??因為有人跟我打英文我都不太敢回中文~~雖然我對外文很有興趣，卻似乎沒有表現的很好(很大一部份是沒有信心)Tsungyenlee還是看對方用什麼就回什麼？不好意思喔，我知道這個問題有點。。。白癡(請容我這樣說)Tsungyenlee 14:53, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
如果要增加文章內容、加資料的話，是要寫英文還是中文的。現在看到兩文並行，或者二者則其一皆可? 還有關於Embassies的資料，我之前有加貼外交部的資料，我想官方的比較好一點，可是好像又被拿掉了，沒有別的意思，只是個人小小的意見。如果wikimania團隊覺得This week in Taiwan的資料就已足夠，那也很好。Tsungyenlee 14:33, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
- 至於稱呼，我想您可以隨意稱呼，畢竟我是後輩，非常小的後輩，我都可以接受的!Tsungyenlee 14:45, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
ps謝謝您對年會的邀約，不過如果您有注意到我的學校的話應該會發現我不太可能出席了。。唉。。。anyway，謝謝您Tsungyenlee 15:04, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
I think it might be useful to have a tab page that contains *all* the information together just in case the user wants to print all the information in one shot rather than to individually print each tab page. Of course, such tab page *should not* be implemented *untill* all the individual tab page sections are officially considered done; otherwise, it would be an updating nightmare. Still, I like the tab pages idea: it allows us to have an easier time editting each subsection.
PS. A carbon copy of this message was sent to Cobrachen. Allentchang 23:16, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
(This is a carbon copy of the message that I sent to Cobrachen) I will dump all sorts of very rough information on to the Local Information pages rather than spending time thinking about the format, spelling, and grammar because I don't have too much time to do this. We can talk about polishing the information later. BTW, what is the name of the store on 永康街 that sells Mango Ice? Allentchang 07:21, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
I see. Thanks
謝謝，我了解了。之前還不知道有這個東西的說，真不好意思。另外正好有件事想請教，local information的main page現在三個框架內都是跟tag上列著同樣的文字。我在想如果把index的文字列表改成圖像會不回比較好呢?Tsungyenlee 09:49, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
說真的，我也不太確定，可能像是......例如關於台北就放些台北的景觀成橫幅。我有稍微試了一下，可是效果沒預期的好，稍後上傳後再請您看一下好了。Tsungyenlee 10:26, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
Tsungyenlee 10:45, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
- So...How do you think??您覺得需要圖嗎?要的話我再繼續做。Tsungyenlee 16:36, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
版權請您放心，目前都是用wiki的。最多我會用台灣政府的網站，並加註解。500px for width?正好我覺得太長會太空呢！Tsungyenlee 16:45, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
有做出了滿多版本的，那是要明天弄好後再一起給您看?要全部都上傳？還是用其他管道給您?Tsungyenlee 17:13, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
較少使用msn，不過剛剛以經裝好了我的是chonyen@hotmail.com。目前local info的做了滿多個(因為圖都太漂亮了，所以直接貼上去的感覺就很ok了)，不過about Taipei 的目前只完成了一個，而且我也只加了北美館，不知會不會太單調。Tsungyenlee 17:28, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
已經做了修改，詳細的您可以在網站上看到了。惟獨About Taipei我只完成了一半，因為我不確定這個idea會不會太幼稚，所以想先請您過目。Tsungyenlee 13:05, 6 May 2007 (UTC)
We need more help!
Seeing how the progress is so far on the English drafts, I think we need more help. Can you find anyone else to help do these translations? I've already dumped most of the ideas in my head. Allentchang 15:55, 6 May 2007 (UTC)
I think it is really helpful to have a language page tab in the Local information. We need to warn people that Taiwanese Mandarin and Beijing Mandarin are as different as American English and British English. We also need to warn people that there is a confusing mixture of romanization systems as well as to explain the different dialects in Taiwan. Allentchang 13:52, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
- 我也正想提議要增加這個條目，昨天在打street address時就想要提了，我覺得特別重要的是幾種英文拼音法和它們時用的地方(ex MRT全用hanyu......etc)Tsungyenlee 14:07, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
Understood. I almost got carried away in making this into another Lonely Planet travel guide. I guess from now on, I'll try to refrain from adding any more information and instead create links to Wikipedia about certain topics such as Taiwanese cuisine. I think it would be best for me to focus on copy-editing almost done articles instead. I'll leave everyone else to write the articles and when they signal that they think the article is done, I'll print out and go over the entire English article and correct the grammar and "Chinglish." Allentchang 12:59, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
If you wish to reach me while I am at work, my skype user name is the same as the username you see now. Allentchang 13:14, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
ps.我看到新聞了。。。或許在這講不好，不過，聯合加油!!!!!!Tsungyenlee 13:35, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
- 還有一個問題，如果是museum只要放在museum還是attractions as well?Tsungyenlee 15:06, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
- Introduction下有一欄簡單的小導讀，指引不同需要的人，這是根據我們之前的討論（Official Website Proposal第1段）所草擬，關於這個，我建議sidebar就按四種人：想了解、想報名、想幫忙、已報名四種劃分，現在一整群擠在「關於」，閱讀不好找到重點。
還想改更多視覺相關的，例如說css以及底圖，但不知道尺度如何，就暫且作罷。 你先看過吧，昨天抱歉，我沒接好group的改場地訊息，又之前手機送修，大家的手機號碼我都沒了，昨天笨笨的以為大家改日子聚，呆呆的在極簡/_\--MagicDesigner 01:39, 11 May 2007 (UTC)
- 看過你的回覆，之前skype不是沒提過該實驗網頁，那麼多人看，也只有小貓幾隻給意見，那就算了。--MagicDesigner 13:36, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
Hi. Thanks for the prompt reply. I had sent all my details to email@example.com. I had sent all the remittance details in reply to a mail I had received from Stephanie Chen with the subject "[Ticket#2007050210014138] Notice from Wikimania 2007 You haven't completed the remittance and registration process". Thanks once again. - Aksi great 14:31, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
- Hi. I got confirmation for registration today. Thanks if you had a role to play in it :) - Aksi great 08:08, 18 May 2007 (UTC)
WM07 accommodation booking
Hi, Theodoranian. Thank you for your asking us (me and my husband) whether we need any special arrangement. Well, if a room for 2 persons be available, it would be fine. But if that kind of arrangement is difficult, rooms for 3 or 4 persons (that means each of us will lodge different rooms) will be quite ok with us, either. Thank you! --Miya 21:52, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
- About lodging modification
- I've just sent a modification request e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. That is I hope to modify my lodging resavation from August 3,4,5 to August 2,3,4,5; from 3 nights to 4 nights, if possible. This request is only about me, not about my husband. My husband can't come to Taipei on Aug 2, only I would come on Aug 2. So I woule be very happy if I can lodge in CTOYAC Aug 2, too. But if it is difficult, please say so. --Miya 23:53, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
Hi Theodoranian. Sorry for the delay in the translations. Now the spanish main templates are made. I also updated the spanish main page. :-) --Zuirdj 04:51, 19 May 2007 (UTC)
Hi Theodoranian. I need some assistance again. I have sent you details through email. Please check the email account linked to this page. Thanks. - Aksi great 07:18, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
- Hi THD. I have sent you a mail regarding wikimania scholarship. Can you please take a look at it. Thanks. - Aksi great 12:19, 28 July 2007 (UTC)
From David Pendery
Theodoranian: yes, I noticed that my introduction on the Presenters page came in kind of long, but it looks like someone has shortened it, which is fine. I have been trying to generate some interest and feedback in my conferenece proposals on the Talk pages, Program Ideas pages etc.--but with no luck so far, disappointingly. I may end up needed some help getting students together for my panel discussion--the students and teachers at Chengch in Taipei are dead, and have been of no help. Can I work with you on that, or would that be someone else? Thanks a lot.
From David Pendery
This is David Pendery. I was wondering if I could ask your help. I am scheduled on August 3 to host a panel discussion at Wikimania entitled "Taiwanese Students and Wikipeida: A Good Mix." I am looking forward to this. However, there is one slight problem. My proposal in May actually consisted of two ideas. One was this panel discussion, but the other was a theoretical analysis of the structure and content of Wikipedia. The paper is entitled "Bright Air, Brilliant Fire: The Mind of Wikipedia." The analysis is based on the consciousness theory of Dr. Gerald Edelman (Nobel Prize 1972). Edelman’s theory, which I apply to the "mind" of Wikipedia, is that human consciousness stems from neuronal networks in the brain, which are structured in massively parallel formations of overlapping data maps and circuits. These maps and circuits receive huge amounts of independent inputs, which are managed and “interpreted” by way of reentry signaling and feedback looping mechanisms, all of which distills and assembles information, and strengthens conceptual creation, organization and disposition in the human mind.I match up this theory to the structure and content of Wikipeida, and I think it is a very exciting analysis and unique view of the value of Wikipeida. You can see the entire abstract at: http://wikimania2007.wikimedia.org/wiki/Program_Ideas
My problem is that it looks like this analysis has been overlooked in the Wikimania planning process. Currently I am not scheduled to give this talk, although my proposal was accepted by Wikimania. As I say, I think this talk could be very interesting and useful for Wikipeida users and others, and I hope to be able to give this presentation. Could you look into this? I have worked very hard on this paper, and was getting a presentation ready, but now I don't know where I stand.
I have contacted another planner, TzuChiang about this, and also written an email to one of the Wikimania editors listings. I just want to see if I can straighten this out. Thanks a lot for your help. Jim Nightshade 00:21, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
還有，" Probably can't make it"的也要嗎?Tsungyenlee 03:14, 6 July 2007 (UTC)
Call for Photographers, Writers, and Cameramen
If you are attending Wikimania, we need you to help cover it. Please post all your Wikimania 2007 articles, videos, and pictures here http://wikimania2007.wikimedia.org/wiki/Event_Coverage, so that other Wikimedians have a way to virtually participate in our annual conference.
To help coordinate coverage, we are asking that individuals sign up to cover a specific event here: http://wikimania2007.wikimedia.org/wiki/Article_Coverage. This will ensure that all events are being covered.
I thank you and your team and many voluntteer people for all the effort and hospitality! You must be VERY busy before, during and after Wikimania. Are you all right now? As I wasn't bold enough to express my thanks on mailinglists, and couldn't find any other page, let me express it here. I'm glad you encouraged me to come, when I hesitated to register. It was a great experience to be involved in Wikimania, meeting foreign wikimedians, attending conferences, enjoying meal, teatimes and the party, exploring Taipei city, and so on. Though I knew little about Taipei or Taiwan before, now Taipei is one of my favorite cities with its Night Market, delicious cuisine and most of all, the friendly people; Wikimania 2007 made me have a very close feeling to Taiwan! Thanks again, Theodranian. --miya 09:13, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
I thank you （especialy your smile）and your team and many voluntteer people,「ありがとう 楽しかった」. I hope I can see you again somewhere in the world.--Miya.m 11:49, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
