[Wikimedia-l] Improving tools for handling vandalism, harassment, & spam

2020-02-17 Thread Sydney Poore
Hello all,

Back in August, the Wikimedia Foundation posted

 about privacy enhancement and abuse mitigation.[1] In short: The rules
about the use of personally identifiable information on the internet are
coming under more and more scrutiny, and we have to figure out how to
respond to the incoming changes without adding to the burden of those who
keep the Foundation's wikis free from vandalism, harassment, and spam.

*There are three proposed ideas*[2] that would benefit from your
feedback *at the
talk page*.[3] What are some costs, benefits and risks we might be
overlooking? How can we improve upon these ideas? What sounds exciting,
what sounds sub-optimal?

You are invited to translate the project page or share the page with others
who might be interested. You also can privately give feedback by email. [4 ]

2020-02-17 Thread Rosie Stephenson-Goodknight
Hi everyone!



I'm very happy to announce that the Affiliations Committee has recognized
[1] Wiki Cemeteries User Group [2] as a Wikimedia User Group. The group
aims to collaborate around the scope of cemeteries with existing
Affiliates; connect with new partners and editors, especially in the field
of traditional genealogy; understand cultural sensitivities around the
theme of cemeteries; understand cemetery culture, including the role of
caretakers, specialty items (e.g. flags for veterans, flower wreaths), and
so forth.



Please join me in congratulating the members of this new user group!



Regards,

Rosie Stephenson-Goodknight

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Movement Strategy: Last chance to review the recommendations, next steps

2020-02-17 Thread Nicole Ebber
Hello Todd,

Thanks for your question. The video is indeed incomplete. We cut if
for the viewer's comfort, as the original version is ~60 mins long,
and has questions and interaction with the audience at All Hands. Our
main objective for this video was to focus on conveying the broad
context and content of each recommendation in a quick and accessible
way, without putting too much emphasis on specific recommendations or
details.

We'll look into whether the dialogues offer additional clarity. We
might also have to identify those who have asked the questions and get
their consent to publish. That can take a couple of days, so please
stay tuned.

Best wishes,
Nicole
