Oh dear Sati,

always being exciting working with you and I will miss that a lot, but we
have to do it one last time before you leave RA WG awaits you!

Gosh I will miss the adventures of an Eskimo :-), I wish you the best on
your next adventure.

Don't be a stranger!

[Wikimedia-l] 1Lib1Ref is happening again in May!

2018-04-13 Thread Felix Nartey
*Hello 1Lib1Ref Organizers,#1Lib1Ref, the annual campaign where librarians
add references to improve Wikipedia, is coming back again this year,
running from May 15th to June 5th, 2018.  Why twice? We heard from you a
desire to run it again out of excitement, because May is not summer
vacation for the southern hemisphere, and because Spanish Wikipedia's
birthday also falls in May.  This is a great expansion of the event and it
means that there is another opportunity to make Wikipedia more factual and
verifiable by leveraging the expertise of librarians around the world.  How
does this relate to the main campaign in January?  We encourage librarians,
community members, and affiliates to make 1Lib1Ref their own.  So whether
we call this 1Lib1Ref May, 1Lib1Ref for the Southern Hemisphere, or
1Lib1Ref Strikes Back, the point is the excitement is building again, and
we'd like you to be a part of it.If I participated in January, do I have to
do it again in May?  It's entirely up to you, this is just another chance
if you want to do more, or if you couldn't get around to January
activities.  This is a pilot for us, too, so we'll see how it goes and
discuss what we learned after the May campaign.How can you get involved? -

2017-08-16 Thread Felix Nartey
Hi all,

I am excited for being awarded the Wikipedian of the year!

The amazing Wikimania video from South Africa tells me the wiki world will
be blown by what Africa has to offer in 2018. More grease to your elbow,
organizers of Wikimania 2018!

I am also very delighted about the response of the L2K and the ripple
effect of the L2K in the movement.

Cheers,

[Wikimedia-l] Wiki Indaba - Letter to Katherine (L2K)

2017-04-01 Thread Felix Nartey
Dear Katherine,

I hope this email finds you well.

As resolved from the recent Wiki Indaba 2017 in Accra, Ghana please find
attached the L2K.[1]

This letter consists of the feedback collected from participants on two
sets of questions (explained further in the letter). The organizers of
Indaba analysed this data on behalf of the African conference participants.

We would also like to take the opportunity to appreciate Wikimedia
Foundation support including Asaf Bartov and Kacie Harold from Community
Engagement, Jack Rabah from the Global Reach Team, and Zack McCune from the
Communications Team.

See you soon at our next Wiki Indaba in Tunisia.

Best,

- Felix Nartey
