2020 to November 2021 (original version in Italian
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiDonne/Reports/Report_2020-2021>, maybe

[Wikimedia-l] Small gratitude to our fellow wikimedians

2021-11-08 Thread Camelia Boban
Hi everybody.

Today, on the social media channels, we received the news about another
wikimedian who is passed away: Steve Suleeman (User:Stephensuleeman from
idwiki). As others in the recent or distant past: Spasimir Pilev
(User:Спасимир Пилев from bgwiki), Pier Luigi Rocco (User:Moroboshi from
itwiki), Elena Sanz Queiruga (User:ElsaBornFree from
eswiki), User:SlimVirgin from enwiki, Krzysztof Machocki
(User:Halibutt from plwiki).

For these losses, I think we - as a community, through the Wikimedia
Foundation - need to set up a fund to build a commemorative plaque to
remember all the wikimedians we have lost.

I would suggest it to be a thought from the community, extended also to all
other major events of a wikimedian's life (marriage, birth of a child). We
know a wikimedian often sacrifices the free time, dedicating a large part
of their own real life to our projects and the movement. Would be a
recognition from the community for the work done and a memory for the
families, a "small gratitude to our fellow wikimedians" as someone said.

I know that some affiliates are already doing this (eq. Wikimedia
Indonesia), would be a lovely idea to do it in a centralized way at the
level of the whole movement.

What do you think?

Hi Katherine, thank you for having been part of our movement.
I assiduously started my activity for diversity and reducing the gender gap
in the movement exactly at the same time of your appointment, at Wikimania
2016 in Esino Lario.
So my memory is that my work and the birth of WikiDonne is in some way
related to your role as ED at that time, and that important phase for the
Wikimedia movement.

I wish you all the best ❤,
Camelia & WikiDonne

[Wikimedia-l] WikiDonne User Group report Nov 2019 - Nov 2020

2020-12-14 Thread Camelia Boban
Hi everybody.
Sorry for the delayed time, I just filled WikiDonne
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiDonne/Reports/Report_2019-2020> User
Group report
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiDonne/Reports/Report_2019-2020> for
the period November 2019 - November 2020, sending it to the Affiliates Data
Portal <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Affiliates_Data_Portal>
 too.
It tried to be detailed and complete as I think is useful to understand all
the affiliate's efforts inside the movement.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions.

Warm regards,

Thank you, Florence & Isla.
Here is the Italian page

Harris <https://it.wikiquote.org/wiki/Kamala_Harris> article (just think
that now in Wikiquote, with the Italian version, are only 3 entries) and Amy

I think that* Giving a bit of love to Wikiquote in the language you like *is

congratulations, great work.
As a developer in love with SPARQL and seeing that WikiDonne uses Wikidata,
creating lists of missing women biographies
<https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progetto:WikiDonne/Liste_voci_mancanti> &
some query examples
<https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progetto:WikiDonne/SPARQL>, we are

way to contact you and your team?

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wiki Loves the Olympics 2020

2020-07-16 Thread Camelia Boban
Thank you, Santiago, great. We will participate.
WMES's event fits perfectly and seems to be a prelude to WikiDonne's Wiki
Loves Sport campaign <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wiki_Loves_Sport>,
this year to it's the second edition.
So, after participating in Wikimedia Espana's Wiki Loves Olympics, we
invite you all to continue writing about sport on Wiki Loves Sport, from
July 24th to September 6th (the period planned for the Olympics and
Paralympics Games and postponed to 2021).

See you there,
Camelia

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Is the Wikimedia-movement apolitical?

2020-04-25 Thread Camelia Boban
Absolutely agree with both. Everything we do in the wiki movement (as
everything we do in our whole life) has (also) a political meaning.
As we have certain goals and we take certain positions.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Treatment of newbies with mild CoI

2020-02-26 Thread Camelia Boban
I can say that in Italian Wikipedia, in many edit-a-thon that WikiDonne
organized, in time we had often cases where the whole newbie's user page
was deleted immediately, without even warning. Because inside was write for
example "this is a test" or because the page was empty.

Needless to tell you the loss of those who participate in an event and in 5
minutes see the own user page deleted or sometimes even blocked. People who
already enter with lead feet, because complexed by entering and editing in
a community of perfectionists (as we are seen from the outside).

Someone asks for links to demonstrate what is said, but knows that this is
hard work, it means remembering everything and looking for hundreds of
discussions. One should simply remember or put the guideline of good faith
into practice and simply trust. Paulo has right when says that
sometimes *established communities
of editors treat newbies as unwelcome invaders.*

This is not an accusation email to see who is the culprit, but rather a
discussion to see what can be done to improve, since we have a very big
problem of retention and loss of users.

Great.
Someone for Android (and other cemeteries) too? Or some open code.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Recognition of the Wiki Cemeteries User Group

2020-02-18 Thread Camelia Boban
Yes, I'm responding in my capacity of a UG co-founder, so from a personal
perspective (but also using the knowledge and experience gained during the
participation in the committee).
And no, even if on the territory are more than one UG, the topics could be
 different: someone could treat GLAM, someone else Education and so on. And
the language could be different too, not only on the same more extended
territory, but even in the same country. We have different UG based on
language, often acting on the same territory (lgbo Wikimedians UG, Hausa
Wikimedians UG and Wikimedia Nigeria UG are active in Nigeria, for example).

May WikiDonne or Wikimedia Italy say something if a cimitery UG want the
recognition in Italian language? No, because Italian is a language (spoken
in Italy, but also in Switerland, Albania, Argentina etc) not a country, so
geographical discrepancy (in Italy WMIT could have something to say). As
language coverage, WDG could say something, but cimitery is not related to
gender gap (so different topic from WDG).

(For now) At the base of the UG's recognition are also language and
topic/area of activity, not only territory. These are the models
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_movement_affiliates/Models> right
now, with the strategy direction everything could change.

@Ciell
As one of who joined the group, I can say it is not the charm of the
cemetery itself, but the particularities of the local culture and the
history (many of the personalities are buried, often the texts on the
funeral stones are real poems and the funeral stones themselves are
cultural heritage).
Just think to Campo Verano
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Campo_Verano> and Protestant
Cimitery <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protestant_Cemetery,_Rome> (Keats,
Shelley, Gramsci and many other) in Rome, Staglieno
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monumental_Cemetery_of_Staglieno> in
Genoa, Merry
Cimitery <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merry_Cemetery> in Săpânța
(Romania) etc.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Next steps on Wikimedia Space

2020-02-18 Thread Camelia Boban
Hi Quim and Paulo,

Like anything we lose as a movement (see also Wikipedia Zero), I am very
sorry for this decision, for those who worked and for those who were
comfortable with the platform.
I was not, as I am not with Phabricator (despite being a developer). It's a
matter of habits and preferences, of course, so my opinion has the same
value as someone else who loves them.
I don't really know the whole situation (expenses, number of users etc),
but I think we shouldn't have the same philosophy as Google, which lets go
of products that - not only from a commercial point of view, but in terms
of use - they didn't have the turnout expected.
We are different and I may be sentimental, but I expect that we keep the
projects standing even if we have only one user.

Camelia

[Wikimedia-l] Affiliations Committee elections results

2020-01-27 Thread Camelia Boban
Hi everyone,

I'm pleased to announce that Mehman Ibragimov has been appointed to the
Affiliations Committee as new members. In addition, four incumbent members
-- Rosie Stephenson-Goodkinght, Sami Mlouhi, Olushola Olaniyan and Emna
Mizouni - have been re-appointed for an additional term. Please join me in
welcoming our new and returning members. You can find the updated list here
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Affiliations_Committee/Members#Current_members>
.

The committee extends its profound gratitude to Kirill Loskin (former Chair
during the last two years) and Maor Malul (former Chair previously), who
were stepping down after having served five and respectively six years on
the committee and to everyone who participated in the recent selection
process, whether by standing as a candidate or by providing feedback on the
applications.

Regards,
Camelia Boban on behalf of AffCom

[Wikimedia-l] Wiki Loves Sport 2019

2019-06-29 Thread camelia boban
Hi all.
One more week left for Wiki Loves Sport
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wiki_Loves_Sport> campaign to write about
(not exclusively) women in sport on Wikipedia where you are all welcomed
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wiki_Loves_Sport/Participation>. A way to
follow the matches of our national teams and write the missing (female)
biographies on Wikipedia.

Of the total 24 teams
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_FIFA_Women%27s_World_Cup_squads>
 qualified
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_FIFA_Women%27s_World_Cup_squads> for
the final tournament of FIFA Women World's Cup 2019
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_FIFA_Women%27s_World_Cup> in
France, only 4 teams will continue the competition for the semi-finals and
the final.
On Thursday, England national team beat Norway's 3-1 and yesterday the Unites
States Women's national soccer team
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_women%27s_national_soccer_team>
(current
champion) beat France 2-1, both accessing the semifinals. Italy-Netherlands
and Germany-Sweden matches will be held today.

Be bold!

Oh my Gosh Paulo, can you stop this dramma about yourself and your problem
with everything is connected with WMF?

To others, please have respect for the both parts engaged in this sad story
and do what Geert asked, stop discussing about this specific conflict
publicly.
If you want to talk more about harassment (in a generic way), then open
another thread.

Thank you,
Camelia

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Some goodbye to all

2019-06-20 Thread camelia boban
One way or another, as nerds, we are all weird. I felt in love with this
movement when I realized that anyone inside would not have felt a stranger.
I live in Rome, where there is the habit of hugging and / or kissing each
other on one cheek and another when we meet. In the Arab world I saw that
the kisses they give are 3. At this point, I will think twice before doing
it.  In the MeeToo era we must be careful not to exaggerate, striving to
understand the difference between harassment and what can sometimes be
rudeness only or, in this case, sensitivity and affection expressed in
another way congenital to us.

Let us remember that behind what we perceive as "different" there is a
human being, with his story and his desire for interment and to be part of
something greater, a community.

I will miss you Romaine, I will miss your tenderness and I am so sorry
about how things went and how bad you are.

I don't know about you wikipedians, but I feel terribly sad. And defeat,
because I don't understand what's happening to us.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Fram en.wp office yearlock block

2019-06-14 Thread camelia boban
I quote David and Isaac.
Harassment is a serious thing and hounding another user is out of any wiki
behavior.
Before asking why WMF has banned an admin (and if Fram was not an admin,
all these discussions would not have been done), we need to ask ourselves
why we (other users) have allowed such an attitude without intervening to
stop it.

These result fully confirm our initial decision

so we cannot be happier than this. So many congrats to Nat & Shani  .
We congratulate all the candidates for their wiki commitment.
A big thank you to the facilitators; their help was essential for better

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Feedback requested for draft code of conduct for user group

2019-05-29 Thread camelia boban
I do not understand how from a general proposal for a Code of Conduct for
user groups one goes on to talk about ideologies, personal retaliations,
irony about the politic situation of the countries of those who comment
etc.
Here we are discussing together whether or not we have a shared CoC.
We have different criteria for UG, do we have different rules for reports,
deadlines, obligations? No. So why not a CoC as much shared (and then maybe
specific CoCs for particular situations).
Sorry, but I don't see the meaning of this controversy.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Reviewing our brand system for our 2030 goals

2019-04-10 Thread camelia boban
Absolutely agree with Galder.
WikiMedia is not only Wikipedia. Is not just an encyclopedia, but all other
wiki projects.
And is also a movement for openness, a philosophy, a way to do things.
Means collaborations, partners, a lot of other staffs than an encyclopedia
doesn't include.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Helene Hahn and Mirjam Stegherr appointed to the WMDE board

2019-03-04 Thread camelia boban
Hi Lucas, Helen and Mirjiam.

WMDE's approach on this appointment of two new members of the board find me
extremely happy.
Professional skills and diversity are weighty factors in our movement and
considering only non-men applications to increase the diversity could be a
suggest in all those cases of affiliates where there are no female or non
binary figures on the board.

I congratulate you on your choice, and wish you a good job with Helen and
Mirjiam to whom I wish a warm welcome in the movement.

Sincerely,
Camelia (WikiDonne UG)

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Flash fundraiser for Wikimedia Portugal

2018-11-17 Thread camelia boban
Olá Gonçalo and Wikimedia Portugal.
Was easier for me, on behalf of WikiDonne User Group, to send a PayPal to
your individual email rather than an international money transfer from my
bank (40% were taxes to be added).
Good look.
