2015-03-03 Thread Jan Ainali
Update: It seems that wikipedia.org, wikimedia.org and mediawiki.org links
now are whitelisted in DMs.

 Only twitter and Facebook links go thru DMs. I think if several people file
 a support ticket for this we may achieve something. Else get Jimbo to send
 a mail to the Twitter folks. Problem would be solved in no time. :)

  That said, every other source I can find mentioning a whitelist points

  So I'll poke some folks but don't hold your breath :)

For some months, Twitter have been blocking most URLs in their

Do we have someone who has a contact there, who could ask them to
whitelist Wikimedia project URLs in DMs?

 Hi all,

 I'm new to this mailing list (mainly active on en-Wikipedia over the
 past ten years or so), so apologies if this is not the right place to
 ask this.

 I've been catching up with posts to this mailing list since I started
 subscribing back in December 2014, and this thread on proposed changes
 to the EU copyright rules is one that I'd like to follow up on and
 find out what progress has been made and what the Wikimedia movement
 and individuals can do to help. I'd be particularly interested in
 whether it might be possible for changes to be made to the Freedom of
 Panorama restrictions, which is one of the things that would really
 help with some of the topics I work on over at Commons (mainly images
 of war memorials in France). If changes were possible, what sort of
 timescale would we be looking at? Several years at least?

Re: [Wikimedia-l] WMF Finance Fellows to develop first-ever movement-wide financial report and metrics

2015-03-03 Thread Lene Gillis
Hi Pine,

Thank you for your inquiry and for following up the status of this project.

We’ve updated the information on our meta page[1], so that it is more clear
to everyone. We would like to clarify that the Draft Report is a
finalization of the raw dataset and is not intended to be published. We are
currently focusing on representing the data, so that everyone can easily
understand the outcomes of our project. This will be revised internally and
the outcome of that will be the Final Report, which will be published in
April.

All the best,

Lene

  Keegan,
 
  May I point out that the term on the timeline is deadline, as in
  commitment, not as in estimate. I view commitments as serious
 business.
  I believe that in IEGCom we met our deadlines every single time when I
 was
  on that committee, the Signpost is published weekly with rare exceptions,
  and there were a number of nights as a WMF intern when I got less than 6
  hours of sleep in my semi-successful efforts to keep my commitments to
 WMF
  and to my other employer. ( I do thank WMF for that internship, it was a
  good experience overall). Of course there may be variances from schedules
  on occasion (people do get sick, have their cars break down, etc), but I
  believe that Lila made a point in the All Hands that projects are to be
  completed on time, and I think it's reasonable that commitments should be
  kept whenever possible. I try to do this myself and I hope that WMF takes
  its commitments seriously too.
 
  The report of the Finance Fellows will inform some of my thinking about
  Cascadia's budget and it would be helpful to have the draft published
 early
  this week.
 
  Thank you,
 
  Pine


 ​Pine,

 I do not believe I was questioning the commitments of anyone​, nor was I
 seeking to argue those points with you. I am simply saying, and I still
 believe this is true, that it's not an unreasonable observation that this
 is the weekend nor is it unexpected for people to take weekends off.
 Weekends are terrible times to release news, for the very reason that
 people are taking them off. Having some patience for Monday to arrive is
 not too much to ask at all.

 Thanks!

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia OTRS Annual Report

The Communications team relies on OTRS volunteers every week, so I really
enjoyed reading this report and learning more about your critical
contribution to our movement. I passed this along to some of our colleagues
outside the WMF that help support media inquiries, and got this response
that I wanted to share:

WowOTRS is kind of magical. It's incredible that it's mostly handled
by volunteers -- amazing humans! Thanks for sharing :)

Thank you again for all the wonderful work you do!

Re: [Wikimedia-l] UTC in politics, editors threaten, or how rev history made the news

2015-03-03 Thread Gheorghe Zugravu
Hi,
a big thank you to Yuri for flagging this case of manipulation of public
opinion.

Reading through the links provided - i can say WP edit time was mostly
discussed among ”pro-state” media. One journalist even went as far as
insinuating  that assassination was planned in the ”west” and that WP
was used to provide for media coverage (sic!)

I think that RU:WP should ask for apologies from the newspapers.
