[Wikimedia-l] Wiki Arabia Conference Algeria from 15 to 17 October 2021

2021-08-30 Thread Mohammed Bachounda
Under the title "*Openness <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Openness>*", "
انفتاح <https://ar.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D8%A7%D9%86%D9%81%D8%AA%D8%A7%D8%AD>"
the Algerian Wikimedians User Group
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Algeria> has the honor to
organize the first remote conference of its kind directed at the
Wikimedians community, in which it invites Arab user groups in the Arab
region and all users of the Arabic Wikipedia encyclopedia to participate in
it by submitting talks under this title. The conference will be from 15 to
17 October 2021


We believe in the importance of the Wikimedia community, especially the
Arab community, in the perspective of openness towards global free
knowledge content, to offer this information in Arabic through Wikipedia
and its sister projects to every human being in this universe.

The Wikimedia Algeria user group is organizing the Wiki Arabia Algeria 2021
conference, which will be virtual for the first time in the Arab world from
15 to 17 October 2021 under the title "Openness".
We are honored to invite you to participate and enrich this conference,
which is an opportunity to share your topics and experiences with the Arab
region.

*We suggest to you four main points that need cessions during the
conference*:

   - How can we achieve this openness?
   - How do we increase the quantity and quality of content in the Arabic
   Wikipedia and its sister projects?
   - What are the strategies that should be adopted to publish outstanding
   content in the Arabic Wikipedia and its sister projects?
   - How do we maintain the pace of enriching good and new content in the
   Arabic Wikipedia and its sister projects?


In order to present your important conference, you can fill in the
intervention form via the following link   :
https://www.wikiarabia2021.com/en_GB/event/propose-2/track_proposal
As a reminder, the *deadline *for submission of interventions is *September
15, 2021 at 23:59 UTC*

If you have any questions or inquiries, please email us at

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Recognition of the Arabic Wikimedians User Group

2021-04-07 Thread Mohammed Bachounda
I would like to thank all those who have participated in the long process
of building this group, which...through this recognition we hope to promote
the birth of the world wiki movement.
This region of the world needed a group of this type to better serve the
expectations of the community in the field of collaboration and expansion
assistance etc., which itself is part of the global wikimedia movement.

I would like to greet all those who have believed in us from near or far
and hope for more collaboration with all of you because this group is open
to all of you because we need your help and support to better serve you and
the universal knowledge.

and thank you to WMF for their trust.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Movement Strategy: Feedback requested on draft outline of Transition events

2020-08-06 Thread Mohammed Bachounda
Bonjour à tous,

Ceci est une mise à jour concernant les avancements de la Stratégie du
Mouvement et de la conception des événements de transition.

Le groupe de design de la transition [1]
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Strategy/Wikimedia_movement/2018-20/Transition/People>
a débattu au cours du mois de juillet dernier de la manière à mettre en
place des événements qui peuvent faciliter le processus de transition en
douceur et sans entraves pour le mouvement et commencer à mettre en œuvre
les recommandations de la Stratégie pour le Mouvement [2]
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Strategy/Wikimedia_movement/2018-20/Recommendations>
.

L'équipe de soutien a partagé des résumés hebdomadaires [3]
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Strategy/Wikimedia_movement/2018-20/Transition/Updates>
des discussions du groupe de conception, qui se sont largement concentrées
sur les personnes et le processus relatifs aux événements de la transition,
ainsi que de garantir le caractère légitime du processus, les ressources
nécessaires et la communication.

La transition marquera une étape importante dans notre mouvement pour la
création en collaboration, d'un plan de mise en œuvre de 18 mois destiné à
façonner  l'avenir de ce que l'on fait comme travail, de la culture et des
collaborations.

La Wikimedia Foundation organisera les événements virtuels de Transition,
prévue de septembre à décembre 2020. Nous avons besoin de votre concours
pour nous assurer que les événements vont être aussi inclusifs,
participatifs et mobilisateurs que possible.

Nous sommes ravis de partager les grandes lignes des événements de
transition avec vous et n'hésitez pas à inviter tout le monde à vous faire
part de ses commentaires [4]
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Strategy/Wikimedia_movement/2018-20/Transition/Events_Outline/Draft/fr>
.

Le présent avant-projet (draft) offre des informations à la fois légères et
détaillées sur les événements. ces derniers seront multilingues et les
documents seront disponibles en une variété de langues et de formats. Les
événements de transition visent à être faciles à joindre sur un ou
plusieurs événements. Ils sont destinés pour tous, qu'il s'agisse d'un
nouveau venu ou un adepte chevronné de la stratégie. Ils sont conçus pour
une participation diversifiée à travers les fuseaux horaires et les régions
afin de créer un plan de mise en œuvre à l'échelle du mouvement.

La période d'examen du projet de plan est de deux (2) semaines du 6 au 20
août. Après avoir reçu vos commentaires, le groupe de design finalisera le
plan et la Wikimedia Foundation assurera la réalisation des événements en
fonction de la conception.

Veuillez commenter la page de discussion sur Meta [5]
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Strategy/Wikimedia_movement/2018-20/Transition/Events_Outline/Draft>
et n'hésitez pas à lire et répondre aux questions ci-dessous pour vous
orienter :

   1. Comment le plan peut-il être amélioré ? À votre avis, quels sont les
   obstacles à qui doit être abaissée pour que tout le monde puisse participer
   à la transition ?
   2. Comment pouvons-nous nous assurer que vous et votre communauté
   disposez de ce dont vous avez besoin pour  participer aux événements de
   Transition ?
   3.  Si vous avez participé à d'autres événements virtuels, quelle a été
   votre expérience et quelles leçons peuvent être appliquées dans ce cas ?

Nous vous invitons à nous joindre durant les heures de permanence.
Rejoignez-nous le mardi 11 août à 15.00 UTC (LINK <
http://meet.google.com/gtf-dpdu-bqs>)
ou le jeudi 13 août @ 01.00 UTC (LINK <http://meet.google.com/niq-pdex-cjk
>).
Vous pouvez également nous envoyer un e-mail à cette adresse :
*strategy2030 [image:
(_AT_)] wikimedia.org <http://wikimedia.org>*.

En espérant que tout le monde se porte bien et en sécurité en ces temps
difficiles dans le monde.

Nous vous sommes très reconnaissants de votre temps et de votre attention.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Upcoming Wikimedia Clinic calls and program updates

2020-08-03 Thread Mohammed Bachounda
Thank you Asaf for this initiative, personally I like clinics.
I have seen the other proposals, there is a big problem that they are
already used so there is a big risk of confusion, another proposal is to
give visibility to this meeting.
a nice little logo would be nice.
Another question is that if for example we wanted to use the Jitsi app
platform on meet.wmcloud.org how would we do it?

thanks again

Although cross grants are welcome; it helps so much to go as fast in the
implementation of the projects

Our Algerian UG in advance with the help of several Algerian organizations,
of course if WF supports our projects with strength
that's really nice :)

Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Wikilovesearth] Wiki Loves Earth - Statistics tool

2015-05-13 Thread Mohammed Bachounda
hello Rodrigo

  thank you for this great job

bachounda

2015-05-13 14:01 GMT+01:00 Rodrigo Padula rodrigopad...@gmail.com:

 Hello my friends,

 Yesterday we have updated the tool developed by our team for the WIki
 Loves Earth 2014.

 So, from now you can see the numbers and statistics of the WLE 2015
 through the link https://tools.wmflabs.org/ptwikis/WLE2015

 In general, the numbers are increasing very well based on the current
 average.

 The WLE Brasil 2015 is going very well too, with the new users engagement
 near 96% of the total of participants(bringing 554 new users to Commons)
 and more than 3.000 photos.

 Contributions and suggestions are welcome.

 Best regards

 Rodrigo Padula
 Project Manager
 Wikimedia Brazilian Group of Education and Research

[Wikimedia-l] Evaluation by WMF of Wiki Loves Monuments is failing to understand the community

2015-05-07 Thread Mohammed Bachounda
I organized a contest Wiki Loves Monuments wiki and loves earth in algeria
and coordinate on the rest of each arabic country who has organised the
contest

I had a lot of fun to organize during 2013 2014 till 2015  now

In algeria ;with astonishment ;many do not know what that meant wikipedia;
those who knew wikipedia ;they were discovered commons and more
he was able to me; to establish relationships that are allowed me to create
WMUG Algeriait; is a great chalenge for me

all these offline activities help to enhance the experience and conaissance
of wikimedia projects

Wikipedia is an encyclopedia of knowledge; and yet it is a great unknown

Wiki loves what is good; May it must be renewed

I suggest only one thing:

a single contest each year with a commission that reflects, and proposes
the theme of the year

it is more focus; if the Commission believes that this year we need to
photograph flowers or rare plants or animals in commons then this will be
the case

International Commitee or Commission or the way you want and the weak link
was missing the comunity

wikimedia must help to the elaboration of this infrastructure without
influencing it


best
