[Wikimedia-l] New board of Wikimédia France

2020-11-30 Thread Pierre-Yves Beaudouin via Wikimedia-l
Dear all,

The new board of Wikimédia France is almost the same as the
last one. The only change is the departure of Benoît Deshayes. The board
is composed of 10 people (4 women and 6 men). 

The list and our
contacts are on meta:

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Annoying ads

We should create a rule that state that each discussion on wikimedia-l
will end with "it's the fault of WMF!" ;)

The problem of viewing
several banners at the same time happens because some community members
still use Sitenotice. I think that it's a bad idea and that they should
only use Centralnotice.

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

2020-02-21 Thread Pierre-Yves Beaudouin via Wikimedia-l
Great news! 

We can do a lot of things in this area. For example, an
app for the Pere-Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. The app is based on
Wikidata, Wikipedia and Commons. I've started improving Wikimedia
projects and then try to find a dev to write an app or a website. I was
lucky to find a dev specialised on iOS.

[Wikimedia-l] First Diversity and Francophonie Projects Manager of Wikimédia France

2019-10-16 Thread Pierre-Yves Beaudouin via Wikimedia-l
Hi all,

I'm pleased to announce a new position at Wikimédia France
(WMFR): Diversity and Francophony Projects Manager. Adélaïde Calais [1],
already working for us on WikiFranca and the French speaking
Wikiconvention, is in charge on that. This new position contains 3 main
areas: 

A. Support the structuration and development of francophone
cooperation efforts 'WikiFranca' : Since 2013 and the creation of
WikIFranca by members of Wikimedia Canada, Wikimedia Switzerland,
Wikimedia Belgium and Wikimedia France [2],  we are committed to other
French affiliates of the Wikimedia movement in a logic of mutual
support. The WikiFranca [3] network has welcomed and supported the
emergence of Wikimedia communities in other French-speaking countries by
organizing unifying events. WMFR would like to continue to support the
WikiFranca French-speaking collaborative network and develop friendly
relations with the Francophone affiliates of the movement. 

Ongoing
projects: Francophone Contribution Month, French speaking Wikiconvention
[4], Learning Days in French, rapid grants open to all French speaking
wikimedians [5], WikiClubRFI [6]... 

B. Languages diversity: We will
focus on a territorial linguistic community and develop an annual
project with the help of local associations. In 2019-2020, this will be
the Occitan community whose version of Wikipedia has about 85,000
articles for 5 administrators. We hope to build a development and
support project that will be transferable to other linguistic
communities living in metropolitan France. This project also concerns
the tool Lingua Libre [7] which has been developed to allow the oral
contribution on Wikimedia projects especially for people who speak
regional and minority languages. Since then, the project has evolved,
grown and reached a stage of development sufficient to initiate
recording workshops. It reached 150 000 recordings after a only year
being up and meets expressed needs. We will, therefore, continue to
support it, but we must also look at its future and its usefulness for
the Wikimedia movement, particularly in the context of the 2030
strategy.  

Ongoing projects: Lingua libre, Lingua Libre Sign-it (a
Sign Language project that will be announced later), funding of MOOCs in
Arabic and Shawiya... 

C. Diversify participation in the Wikimedia
movement: In 2018, WMFR launched a specific program for the overseas
territories with the first edition of the contest "Photograph the
Overseas" [8], in partnership with the French Ministry of Overseas and
the French Development Agency. The objective of the Overseas project is
to develop the participation coming from overseas territories in order
to improve the contents on the Wikimedia projects related to these
territories. They represent about 18% of the whole of the national
territory, counting 2 million inhabitants. Overseas territories are as
diverse as the islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon off Canada, Antillean
islands or the kingdoms of Wallis and Futuna in the Pacific Ocean. 

In
order not to disperse our forces and thus weaken our fight against the
gender gap on Wikimedia projects, Wikimedia France supported the
activities of gender gap-bridging projects (Les sans pagEs [9]) and a
monthly Wikisource editathons on women writers [10]. 

Ongoing projects:
Photograph the Overseas, funding of gender gap-bridging projects...


I'm also thrilled to have Emma Vadillo [11], doing an internship of 8
months on Lingua Libre. Emma recently graduated from Science Po Paris
and Columbia University in New York where she also worked at the
Endangered Language Alliance documenting endangered languages. She wants
to pursue studies in linguistics but before that, she is here to apply
her knowledge of indigenous languages of Latin America and linguistic
policy to developing Lingua Libre in its goal of facilitating the
publication of audio content on Wikimedia projects. She hopes this will
enable linguistic communities of regional and/or minority languages to
share their knowledge more easily with the world, as well as appropriate
themselves the new technologies of information and communication to be
able to use them in their own language and for their own benefit.

Hello,

I'm not sure that you were informed about this script that could interest
other organizations and events creator.

Last year, 0x010C coded a calendar in lua [1][2] for Wikimédia France.

Features: ical, filter by tag and location, 3 display mode (but map doesn't
seem to work), interface in different languages.

[Wikimedia-l] First French WikiConvention

2016-08-17 Thread Pierre-Yves Beaudouin
Dear all,

We are proud to announce that the first ever French-speaking Wikimedia
projects editors gathering will take place on August 19-20-21 in Paris,
France. Supported by WikiFranca and organized locally by Wikimedia France,
it's a "dream come true" as the first idea of this event goes back to 2012.

The 1st Francophone WikiConvention will take place in an eco-friendly
rehabilitated place called the Halle Pajol in the 18th arrondissement of
Paris.
Nearly 140 participants from 15 countries will be present. More than 40
proposals were made by the participants to create the program of this 2,5
day convention: gender-inclusive language on Wikipedia, paid contributions,
enriching articles about francophone Paralympic athletes, accessibility and
contribution in Africa ... A variety of themes that reflect the issues of
the francophone part of the Wikimedia movement.

This event was made possible by the support of the International
Organization of the Francophonie, the General Delegation for the French
language and the languages ​​of France, L'Oréal Foundation for Women in
Science, Google France and of course the support of Wikimedia Wikimedia
France and Wikimedia Switzerland, as well as the Wikimedia Foundation. The
event is coordinated by WikiFranca, the organization of chapters,
francophone user groups and contributors of the Wikimedia movement.

It is meant to be then organized annually, if it proves to be successful !
Thank you to all Wikimedians who supported this event. And now, let's do it
!

Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Wikimedia France] WikiCheese crowdfunding - Let's photograph 'em all

2014-11-27 Thread Pierre-Yves Beaudouin
 

Hi, 

Today our campaign became 50% funded [0]! Funding on KissKissBankBank is
similar as Kickstarter. It's all-or-nothing. No one will be charged for
a pledge towards a project unless it reaches its funding goal. 

There is a large press coverage, even outside the country (Der Spiegel,
The Telegraph, Mediafax from Romania, etc. [1]). 

We would like to translate our campaign in Dutch, German, Italian and
Spanish [2]. Could you help us ? I don't have time to write the message
that the Spanish and Italian versions are already finished ;) 

Thx a lot for your help.

 This is about to change. A group of french Wikimedians, lead by Pierre-Yves

 a 

 project to photograph many cheeses, up to 200 for the moment. This project 
 is perticular as we aim to have it found through a french crowdfunding 
 platform, KissKissBankBank. Of course Wikimedia France could have funded it 
 itself, but we wanted
 to 

 use the project as a way to get the larger audience aware of their
 ability 
 
 to contribute and to give a fun image of contributing. The project in few 
 words iss follow : * 10 cheeses per session * During the session the cheeses 
 are photographed and their articles improved * During the sessions 
 experimented wikimedian would train new editors * At every session every 
 participant would enjoy eating good cheese too If you want to read more, or

Hi, 

Thank you Christophe for your message. I'm the project leader of
WikiCheese. If you have any questions about this project, don't hesitate
to leave me a message. 

I've organized a test session to have some visuals for the campaign. The
pictures are already on Commons

 This is an awesome idea Christophe! I'm only jealous that I'm not in France
 to take part (in the editing... editing... in no way do I want to be there
 mostly for the eating of course).
 
 Also, KissKissBankBank is an amazing name for a crowd funding site.

 Good news everyone, Cheese articles are gonna get improved! As french, it 
 was dreadful for us to see so few illustrations of cheese on Wikipedia. This 
 is about to change. A group of french Wikimedians, lead by Pierre-Yves 
 Beaudouin, designed a project to photograph many cheeses, up to 200 for the 
 moment. This project is perticular as we aim to have it found through a 
 french crowdfunding platform, KissKissBankBank. Of course Wikimedia France 
 could have funded it itself, but we wanted to use the project as a way to 
 get the larger audience aware of their ability to contribute and to give a 
 fun image of contributing. The project in few words iss follow : * 10 
 cheeses per session * During the session the cheeses are photographed and 
 their articles improved * During the sessions experimented wikimedian would 
 train new editors * At every session every participant would enjoy eating 
 good cheese too If you want to read more, or even contribute, about the 
 project you can go on

If you have any questions, please feel free to shoot them on or off list. All 
the best, -- Christophe ___
