Re: [Wikimedia-l] Trust and safety on Wikimedia projects

2020-05-25 Thread DerHexer via Wikimedia-l
That's a tricky topic, especially when local dispute resolution bodies
(which should in most cases be approached first, I agree here) cannot solve
the dispute or when multiple projects are involved. At the moment, there is
in fact a lack of such body and of course it should be transparent,
composed of multi-diverse community members who are trained and supported
by professional mediation, etc. as pointed out. Currently, stewards like me
are quite often approached with such topics but this user group is more
focused on technical stuff like userrights. A former steward fellow and I
discussed this topic at the Safety Space at Wikimania. Due to the nature of
the space, the discussion have not been documented but you can find the
presentation with backgrounds of the situation and open questions on Commons
<https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wikimania_2019_%E2%80%93_Do_we_need_a_global_dispute_resolution_committee%3F.pdf>.
Maybe it can give some ideas how to proceed with this.

Best,
Martin/DerHexer

 Betreff: [Wikimania-l] Call for Scholarship Committee, Help wanted for new 
applicants and African community
   
Dear Wikimaniacs,

we are now calling for the Scholarship Committee.

The Scholarship Committee is an important and diverse group of volunteers who 
help to run the scholarship program. We encourage people from all Wikimedia 
wikis to apply for this position so that the committee can handle applications 
in many different languages.

The main duties of the committee members prior to Wikimania 2018 are:
* Participation in periodic online meetings with scholarships program manager 
and other committee members.
* Review and edit communications material (e.g. application questions).
* Assistance in determination of scholarship applicant requirements.
* Assurance of due consideration and speedy response time to Wikimania 
scholarship applications in multiple languages.

For further information please visit 
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimania_Handbook#Scholarships and 
https://wikimania2018.wikimedia.org/wiki/Scholarships.

We are looking for Wikimedians from all over the world, who are:
* fluent in written English and have good communication skills, or can name 
local community member(s) who help them with English translations.
* discreet and able to handle confidential applicant information, and 
objectively assess candidates.
* willing to review scholarship applications remotely in early 2018, estimated 
time is 30 hours. A review guide can be found on 
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:TPS/Wikimania_scholars/Reviewer%27s_guide.
* having either or both:
** previously attended Wikimania,
** strong knowledge of the cross-project Wikimedia community.

Scholarship Committee members may not apply for a scholarship themselves but 
there is a small budget for supporting committee members to attend Wikimania. 
Please tell us if you need financial support in case you’ll be selected.

If you're interested in serving on the Scholarship Committee, please send us an 
email to  wikimania-scholarsh...@wikimedia.org. If you have any questions, 
please don't hesitate to contact us there as well.

Deadline to apply is Sunday, December 10, 2017. The organizers will contact all 
candidates and publish the list of scholarship committee members right 
afterwards.

Proposed timeline
* Nov 30–Dec 10: Call for Scholarship Committee
* mid-December: Selection of the Scholarship Committee and start of the 
submission time
* 5–26 February (estimated time frame): main review time

Before the start of the submission time, we are adapting the application 
process to take recent activities more into account than the years before, as 
proposed on wikimania-l. On the one hand we want to encourage returning 
Wikimania participants to share their knowledge, on the other newcomers to 
Wikimania to apply for a scholarship at all. Former scholarship recipients can 
help us with the latter by sharing their successful applications on MetaWiki: 
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:TPS/Wikimania_scholars#2017_WMF_Wikimania_Scholarships.
 In case you don’t have your text at hand, you can send us a confirmation mail 
to wikimania-scholarsh...@wikimedia.org where you allow us to publish it for 
you.

Above all, we want to support African community members with applying for 
scholarships. To achieve that, we are especially looking for volunteers who 
want help us with encouraging people, assisting with the application form, 
finding the right level of presenting one’s activities, etc. Please reach out 
to us if you'd like to help.

Many thanks,
David Richfield and Martin Rulsch

[Wikimedia-l] Invitation to Wikimania 2016 Scholarship Committee

2015-11-01 Thread derhexer
Dear Wikimaniacs,we are now calling for a scholarship review committee.This 
year, we additionally want a scholarship ambassador for each major geography or 
language, including a representative from each entity which pays for additional 
scholarships; the ambassadors will be committee observers.The scholarship 
review committee is an important and diverse group of volunteers who help to 
run the scholarship program in accordance with the pillars of this Wikimania. 
We encourage people from all Wikimedia wikis to apply for this position so that 
the committee can handle applications in many different languages.The main 
duties of the committee members prior to Wikimania 2016 are:   
   - Participation in periodic online meetings with scholarships program 
manager and other committee members.
   - Review and edit communications material (e.g. Scholarship wiki, 
application questions).
   - Assistance in determination of scholarship applicant requirements.
   - Assurance of due consideration and speedy response time to Wikimania 
scholarship applications in multiple languages.
   - Work with the local team.
For further information please visit m:Wikimania/Scholarships/Tasks (the 
committee will also be polishing this page).We are looking for Wikimedians from 
all over the world, who are:   
   - fluent in written English and have good communication skills, or can name 
local community member(s)/ambassadors who help them with English translations.
   - discreet and able to handle confidential applicant information, and 
objectively assess candidates.
   - willing to review scholarship applications in late 2015/early 2016.
   - having either or both:  
  - previously attended Wikimania.
  - strong knowledge of the cross-project Wikimedia community.

You will be working remotely. While we hope that scholarship review committee 
members will enjoy Wikimania 2016 by giving significant input to it, the local 
team cannot guarantee financial support for the committee members' travel 
expenses since scholarship review committee members may not apply for a 
scholarship themselves.If you're interested in serving on the scholarship 
reviewing committee and/or as scholarship ambassador, please send us an email 
at domande.wikima...@wikimedia.it. If you have any questions, please don't 
hesitate to contact us.Deadline to apply is Sunday, November 15, 2015. The
