Re: [Wikimedia-l] Kva gjer deg glad denne veka? / What's making you happy this week? (Week of 3 November 2019)

1. Lots of new sites created in the last few weeks:

Neapolitan Wikisource - nap.wikisource.org
Hindi Wikisource - hi.wikisource.org
N'Ko Wikipedia - nqo.wikipedia.org
Balinese Wikipedia - ban.wikipedia.org
Mon Wikipedia - mnw.wikipedia.org

Very soon:
Minangkabau Wiktionary
Sakizaya Wikipedia (This would be a good topic for a separate "What's
making you happy this week" email)

The creation of new wikis was broken for some time for technical reasons,
but now it works. Thanks to everyone who helped fix it. See
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T212881 and related tasks.

2. Foundation staff (including myself) are sincerely interested in treating
developers of onwiki tools such as templates, modules, and gadgets as
actual developers, and improving their experience. A place was created for
collecting feedback about this in Phabricator:
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T237490 . Some constructive replies
arrived there already, and it makes me happy. We'd love to see more! The
sooner you send it, the better—this will be one of the topics discussed at
the Tech Conference next week!

If you aren't a developer of templates and gadgets yourself, please forward
this request to the people in your wiki who do it.

On what is perhaps a more personal note, I just want to express my
appreciation to all the developers, maintainers, importers, and translators
of templates, modules, and gadgets on all wikis: you are doing much-needed
innovative work, you are doing it quietly, and you are doing it
brilliantly. Feel free to be louder—you deserve praise and better tools.

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Café online meeting for November 2019

2019-11-06 Thread Pine W
 Hello colleagues,

For this month's Wikimedia Café online video meeting we will continue last
month's discussion regarding Wikimedia activities and organizations in
India. Additional topics may be added to the agenda.

Please see the page on Meta
 for more information,
and watch the page for any updates particularly to the schedule or the
agenda. Signing up for the meeting is optional, but is helpful to the
organizers so that we can estimate how many people will attend. Signing up
for the meeting also informs us who we should notify individually if there
are significant changes, such as to the schedule for the meeting.

The meeting style will emphasize discussion rather than presentation.
People are welcome to participate as listeners only if they prefer.

If there are any problems with connecting to the meeting or if you have any
questions or comments then please write on the Meta talk page.

Regards,

Pine

[Wikimedia-l] Join us at the Wikimedia Summit in Berlin on 3-5 April 2020

2019-11-06 Thread Abraham Taherivand
Dear Wikimedia Affiliates,

It’s with great pleasure that we invite movement Affiliates to join us at
the Wikimedia Summit 2020, which will be held at Seminaris Conference
Center in Berlin from 3-5 April.[1]

With the Wikimedia Summit 2019, we refocused the event entirely on Movement
Strategy and Wikimedia’s path towards 2030. Building upon this concept,
next year’s Summit will again be designed around the needs and
opportunities of “Wikimedia 2030”.[2]

In spring 2020, the recommendations for change will be finalized and we
will have clarity on how to adapt to move strongly and successfully in the
movement’s Strategic Direction. The Wikimedia Summit 2020 will be an
important transition away from strategy development and into the long
awaited implementation of the recommended changes. The event will first aim
to create clarity and shared understanding of the recommendations, and then
initiate the implementation across movement organizations in a
collaborative way. The main part of that conversation is to discuss
prioritization and sequencing of the recommendations, and agree upon
responsibilities in bringing each recommendation to life – globally,
regionally, and on the local level. This will have to be a deeply
collaborative process, engaging all parts of the movement together.

We invite all eligible Wikimedia affiliates to be part of this
conversation. To ensure that we use the in-person time as best as possible,
we ask Affiliates to only send delegates who will come with a good
understanding of the movement strategy process and the draft
recommendations, and are ready to take agency and responsibility to design
and implement the recommendations in collaboration with every part of the
Movement and our partners. We will ensure these criteria are met by asking
targeted questions in the registration form.

As the recommendations affect every part of the movement, from WMF to
affiliates and beyond, we will need all the right people at the table to
design the implementation. A number of Board and staff members of the
Wikimedia Foundation and Wikimedia Deutschland will take part at the event,
and we are also looking forward to invite of some members of the final
writing group and of the Affiliations Committee to join us in Berlin.

The registration to the event will open tomorrow, so watch out for the
email with all logistical information around the event including contact
details.

On behalf of our organizations, we are looking forward to welcoming you in
Berlin in April!

Best regards,

Abraham Taherivand, Wikimedia Deutschland
