Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia CEE Online Meeting 2020

2020-08-05 Thread Ivana Madžarević
Hi Kiril,

Thank you for making this possible. I know it's not easy to adapt to our
new reality and it's challenging and bold to organize an online event like
this. I'm definitely thinking about good examples of our work during the
pandemic and probably will submit that.

I've also forwarded this call via Discord and our mailing list. I encourage
others to do that as well.

Best,

[Wikimedia-l] CEE Meeting 2019 registration is extended until August 3

2019-07-19 Thread Ivana Madžarević
Hello everyone,

I would like to inform you that* the deadline for the CEE Meeting 2019
registration is extended until August 3! *

Although we have announced that here will be no extension of deadline,
we'll do that due to a lot of suggestion from the communities. Some of the
CEE communities need more time to choose their representatives and
unfortunately that caused small number of registered participants so far.

I will use this opportunity to strongly suggest to the all of the delegates
to register in timely manner. You can find more details on the following
links:

   - Registration form:
   
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeRR002uKE4lrzJYTt4qJ9uhioFI7bLmiq2502V0UZlsVapRA/viewform
   - CEE Meeting meta page:
   https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_CEE_Meeting_2019

*Please note that there will be no more extensions and that only those who
register until August 3 will be taken into account. *

Feel free to reach out if you need assistance or additional information.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] World Mime Day Wiki edit-a-thon

2016-03-14 Thread Ivana Madžarević
Hi all,

I'm forwarding this mail from Sherry Snyder regarding read-only moments on
wikis. It will happen on 22nd of March but I hope it won't affect World
Mime Day edit-a-thon, cause it will be during low-traffic period.

From: *Whatamidoing (WMF)/Sherry Snyder* <ssny...@wikimedia.org>
Date: Monday, 14 March 2016
Subject: [GLAM] You will not be able to edit any wiki three times during
the next two weeks
To: g...@lists.wikimedia.org, Wikimedia Education <
educat...@lists.wikimedia.org>


The Wikimedia Technical department is doing a major test for a new data
center. This work will improve the reliability of the servers and their
ability to recover from a major disaster.  As part of this work, it will
briefly be necessary to put all of the wikis into read-only mode.  This
will make it *impossible to edit or save any page* on Wikipedia or any
related project, including the Outreach wiki, during those times.

The current schedule [1] is this:

* No editing for 5 minutes on Tuesday, 15 March at 07:00 UTC (3:00 a.m. EDT)
* No editing for 15 to 30 minutes on Tuesday, 22 March
* No editing for 15 to 30 minutes on Thursday, 24 March

The exact time for the second and third events has not been determined.  It
will be posted at [1].  It will probably be during a low-traffic time such
as 7:00 UTC.

I am sending this information to these lists because being unable to edit
would obviously be very disruptive to any training classes or
edit-a-thons.  I apologize for the late notice.  I hope that this will not
interfere with any of your work.

There is more information posted here:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/Server_switch_2016  If you have
questions for me, then please contact me on wiki at
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Whatamidoing_(WMF)

I'm reaching out to you hoping that you will join organizing World Mime Day
Wiki edit-a-thon. It's an international event that will be held in several
countries (so far confirmed) around the world on 22nd of March.

The idea came up in cooperation of Wikimedia Serbia and Serbian actor Marko

Commons with relevant articles and photos of mime artists, theaters,
festivals, history etc. Mr Stojanović is very well connected with
institutions who can provide literature, photo materials and maybe even a
venue for the edit-a-thon. It would have much more impact if it's organized
in several countries on the same date - similar like Art
edit-a-thons. Organizing such an event will help developing strong
relations between chapters and building partnerships with relevant

I've created meta page
