Do you mean burning hundreds of litres of jet fuel for one or a few 
workshop for an handful of people?
How irresponsible. You may didn't get the emergency of global warming 
mitigation.
For the Wikimedia movement, to get organised in a way that lead to drop 
the flights needed by 5 or 10 time in the next few years would be only 
taking its fair share in the action.

Subject: [Wikimedia-l] Monthly skill share idea

Hi all, after talking to community members at the London meetup yesterday,
I want to suggest that we start running a monthly skillshare after work at
the Wikimedia UK office. It would be good to organise a 12 month programme
with skillshares on things like 'getting an article to featured article
status', AWB, Wikidata infoboxes, something on commons or photography
perhaps.

Would anybody like to suggest other subjects which it would be good to have
a workshop on? We need a list of 12 which would have some broad appeal to
the community and chapter members.

I would suggest Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, maybe first week of the
month. How does that sound to everyone?

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Proposal regarding norms for meeting/deadline announcements

2018-10-15 Thread Rehman Abubakr
Hello Pine,


Since we're on the topic of mailing list norms, may I also suggest that we 
please do not copy the entire mailing list for any one-to-one well wishes as 
well?


Example: "Congrats" messages to various topics like project completed, new 
affiliate, edit count, or whatsoever. Certain times, more than half of my 
mailbox are simply a pile-up of one-to-one congratulatory messages that really 
doesn't concern 99% of the readers. Maybe those can be sent direct/off-list?


Sorry to somewhat change the topic. But I feel this needs to be said somewhere, 
and it might as well be here. :)



Yours truly,

User:Rehman

Subject: [Wikimedia-l] Proposal regarding norms for meeting/deadline 
announcements

Hi Wikimedia-l and Wikitech-l,

Keeping in mind the large numbers of subscribers on some Wikimedia email
lists, the endless valuable uses for the time of knowledgeable volunteer
Wikimedians, the significant financial costs for the time of many of the
staff and contractors on these mailing lists, and how packed calendars can
be, I propose that we implement a few social norms/guidelines for
Wikimedia-l and Wikitech-l in particular.

1. When planning to have a one-time public meeting, announce it at least 14
days in advance to give everyone who might like to participate that much
lead time to clear space on their calendars. Rarely is a one-time public
meeting so urgent that it cannot wait 14 days from the day that it is
announced.

2. Send a maximum of one reminder email regarding a one-time public
meeting, and also send a maximum of one reminder email regarding events
with deadlines such as Wikimania scholarship submissions or conference
presentation proposals. More than one reminder about a meeting or deadline
is excessive.

3. If extending a deadline, send only an announcement of the extension with
no additional reminder.

4. Send only one email to announce a recurring weekly meeting, with no
additional reminders. Meetings which recur less often, such as biweekly or
monthly, may continue to be announced with one additional reminder.

At this time these are proposals only. Comments are welcome. If the
comments become extensive then I may request that we move the conversation
to Meta.

Thank you,

Pine

Hi all,

Wikimedia Nederland has done something similar last year. We've organized a
couple of evenings that were also streamed online. Topics included Commons
(photography tips & uploading), Wikidata, copyright, mass-uploading
(Pattypan mostly). Feel free to contact me for more details.

You are on the main mailing list, did you know? Is this UK workshop to be
online?

Ideas:
Using the Programs and Events Dashboard.

Have you checked about similar initiatives from other chapters or user
groups? I've heard that Wikimédia France ou Wikimedia Deutschland host
similar workshops, both in their offices or inside of local groups. They
may have some feedback to share.

Excellent idea. There was an idea to start something similar "what have you
