[Wikimedia-l] [Wikipedia 20] Rapid Grant survey

2020-09-16 Thread Samir Elsharbaty
Hi everyone,

(Apologies for cross-posting.)

As part of the upcoming celebrations surrounding Wikipedia's 20th
birthday[1], the Wikimedia Foundation is publishing a short optional
survey[2] that will help us understand the needs of people who would like
to host a birthday event. The survey is expected to take three to five
minutes to fill in and will remain open until 23:59 UTC on Wednesday, 30
September 2020.

Before taking the survey, please review the privacy statement policy[3].

We would also like to announce that the Foundation will be supporting
Wikipedia 20 anniversary celebration events through multiple grant programs:

* Rapid Grants[4] to support celebration events up to 2000 USD.

* Additional funding for Conference & Events grantees (e.g. for a regional
or thematic conference) who wish to incorporate a celebration event to an
existing conference.

* Conference & Event Grants[5] to support celebration events for more than
2000 USD.*

*Round one applications for conference & event grants [5] is now open until
28 September 2020.

On behalf of the Wikipedia 20 team, Samir Elsharbaty

Indeed, acronyms are best expanded on first use.  A truly constructive way
to point it out, Mr. During, would have been to model the change you would
like to see yourself.

CEE = Central and Eastern Europe.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Draft schedule of Wikimedia CEE Online Meeting 2020

2020-09-16 Thread Dennis During
Would it be unreasonable to ask that a notice to a general mailing list
from an organizational unit such as CEE actually had the full name of the
organizational unit?  Even the two linked Meta pages did not contain the
name. Only the Eventbrite page had it.  Some mailings seem to have wandered
in from the US DoD or some other country's bureaucracy. It doesn't seem
unreasonable to me that the opening post for a new thread should not have
any acronym or initialism, but should have the topical organization, event,
proposal, or whatever spelled out (Yes, even CoC.). It would seem to me
that such is a requirement for the kind of inclusiveness we are allegedly
seeking.

[Wikimedia-l] Draft schedule of Wikimedia CEE Online Meeting 2020

2020-09-16 Thread Kiril Simeonovski
Dear all,

I would like to inform you that the draft schedule

of
the Wikimedia CEE Online Meeting 2020, which will take place from 2–4
 October, has been published. We have received proposals covering
interesting topics with creative ideas and it was a real challenge to
accommodate them in the optimal way. Thank you for your interest in taking
part as a speaker.

The registration for the event is still open. You can add your username to
the list of participants

and
subsequently confirm your participation by getting your ticket for free on
the following link

. *Note that the number of participants per community is unlimited and we
also welcome interested participants from outside the CEE region.
*Additionally,
there is no obligation to attend all sessions at the conference and you can
freely choose only those that you find particularly interested in.

Best regards,
Kiril
