 A few days ago Christian Aistleitner patched webstatscollector to filter

 After that I patched the raw data files since last July, substracting all
 bogus counts.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] It's time to reclaim the community logo

 Hi,

 let me start by saying that I agree with Dariusz's opinion that we
 should discuss this as a community, and perhaps move on from 'debate
 by press release' into more focused formats like Google Hangout or IRC
 office hours in order to find common ground, share our research, and
 highlight the many outstanding questions that need to be addressed
 before we can make an informed decision about the right path forward.

I've just seen that on Monday Philippe indicated that the consultation
will be closed today, Saturday 7 December.

https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Community_Logo/Request_for_consultationdiff=prevoldid=6585034

I didnt see any notice to this list.

There has been no response from the WMF regarding the request to have
an interactive dialog to sort out the remaining unanswered questions
regarding the collective trademark.

In the last office hours held by LCA, back in January, Phillipe
indicated there would be more IRC office hours this year.[1]

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/IRC_office_hours/Office_hours_2013-01-22

I know the LCA team is very busy with many proposals in community
consultation phase.  With that in mind, I think the community logo
should remain open until the LCA team has had time to hold an IRC
office hours (or similar) to discuss it.  Hopefully before this year
closes...?  Or if it is distracting staff from other projects, maybe
close it temporarily and reopen it after an IRC office hours has been
held.

Hi everyone,

Each year that we run the fundraiser, readers write in really lovely notes.
 Please take two minutes to listen to our readers.

Enjoy!


The story I like to tell is that whilst I had heard of Wikipedia but only
looked at it a few times thereafter, when the 2004 Tsunami occurred the day
after Christmas, mainstream news organisations (TV, newspapers) were all
away from their offices. That day I turned to Wikipedia to try to
understand the scale of the event. It was Wiki editors 'on the ground' that
created the sort of information and coverage usually considered the
province of rolling news organisations only. This I now dub my 'Wiki
Epiphany'.


Wikipedia is an amazing service. Almost always, I am able to find
information on subjects I am interested in. Thanks and Kudos to all staff
and volunteers!!

My world has been opened up time and time again by Wikipedia. From studying
Detroit and computer programming to finding unbiased information on
America's history, Wikipedia has been a beacon of free speech and
information for over ten years. Sometimes, I just sit in awe of the fact
that the greatest accomplishment of man was assembled mostly by volunteers,
people who just wanted to make the world a better place.

Its made life easier for me and expanded my knowledge by allowing me to
more easily find trusted and verified information on the internet. It
organizes all the noise out there on the web and gives a great concise to
the point fact summary of what I want to know. Thank you and thank you to
the millions of volunteer editors. Wikipedia is a necessity in my life and
not just a luxury.

Wikipedia is a source of unbiased information. The caveats and notes from
the editors alert to questionable information. The links within the
articles are amazingly helpful and have led me on wonderful information
expeditions.

I'd like to thank the entire staff of wikipedia and its editors for my high
school graduation.

It's impossible to put in words. I cannot imagine Planet Earth without it
[Wikipedia]. It has changed my life forever.

My 17 year old son uses you constantly. You have made him a smarter human
being.

You guys are ^^%$#* unbelievably awesome, keep it up!

web sites like Wikipedia are invaluable and I felt it my duty to try help
even if only a tad.

so much of the Internet has turned into self serving and unreliable junque;
so I am very, very grateful for the Wiki resource.

I regard W as the best and most reliable source of information available
anywhere. I don't know how you do it so please keep on with your Excellence
}i{  That;s a butterfly for you
This is one of the best things on the internet. It goes back to the
original development of the internet and has remained ethical and true to
its origins. There appears to be no discrimination and it is available to
everyone at no cost.

I am 60 years old and I am still so cruious and interested in so many
things. Wikipedia gives me reasonable information whenever I may want it.


I use wikipedia all the time and credit it more toward my education than
college did!


It's nice to see humanity get together without any external forces for a
common good!


I am inspired by the high quality of Wikipedia and the high ideals of its
founder and its myriad contributors and editors. What a magnificent
collaborative human achievement you are building!


It has simultaneously answered and given me more questions than I can
comprehend.
This represents to me what college should be like. Free and collective
knowledge by and for all.

When I want to know something, I google it and 99% of the time Wikipedia
has what I want to know. Even drinking arguments, about what Biff from Back
to the Future is doing now, are solved by Wikipedia. It's all there.

Without Wikipedia I would be about 30% less intelligent. :(

it is like a gift from the gods of knowledge

I am a teacher and a writer, and I am amazed how often Wikipedia is useful
to me. I consider Wikipedia to be one of the great democratic projects
maybe ever, and it is one of the reasons why I try to stay optimistic about
the world. Thank you.

I honestly feel like the next generation of humans in general, will be much
smarter than the previous because of this site. Well, at least they will
know a whole lot more useless shit. I've heard (don't know for sure if it's
true, doesn't matter) that the bigger a person's brain is, typically, the
smarter that person is. So, if that is true, I think it's likely that
because of this site, in about 50 years, humans will have huge heads. Their
heads will look like the aliens' heads did in attack from mars. If y'all
ever get into commercials for whatever reason, you could use that and
probably make it really funny :)

It's like that reliable family member or friend who's an expert at
something or the other.

I extend my heartfelt thanks to the men and women who tirelessly work on
keeping Wikipedia the wonderful website it is.

There's nothing you can't find on Wikipedia,

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Closure of Community Logo Consultation

2013-12-07 Thread Dariusz Jemielniak
Dear Geoff and Yana,

even though the consultation results indicate that collective membership
mark may have a slightly stronger support than abandoning all trademark
registration, the issue is clearly very divisive. Taking the way the issue
developed and its history, and past communication problems on the way, I
think that recognizing a lack of clear consensus as a good reason to keep
the status quo is sensible. I would like to thank you and commend you for
your hard work, but also for your flexibility - it must have been tough to
put in many hours and work on a solution you believe is best for the
community, and then withdraw.

best,

Dariusz Jemielniak pundit
