Re: [Wikimedia-l] De-recognition of Wikimedia user groups in Brazil

2018-04-09 Thread Rodrigo Padula
I am very disappointed with this decision and announcement.

Surely anyone who has read this notice must be thinking that Brazil is at war, 
in wreckage. But that is not true.

Brazil has never produced so much positive impact in our movement as it has 
now. Both groups have extensively created many very innovative initiatives, 
making Brazil one of the leading countries among Wikimedia movement:

GLAM reports
https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:This_Month_in_GLAM_Brazil_reports  

Innovative GLAM partnerships and projects

https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/GLAM/Newsletter/November_2017/Contents/Brazil_report
https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/GLAM/Newsletter/February_2018/Contents/Brazil_report

We spread the wikimedia movement in Brazil through many television 
participations https://youtu.be/9YOIXPwCqw4?t=46m32s (spreading the Wikipedia 
and fundraising campaigns), Radio interviews and many publications in Brazilian 
newspapers, portals and blogs. We organized the Brazilian and International 
Wikipedia Scientific Conferences, generating lot of new academic papers 
regarding the wikimedia movement and improving our relation with the academic 
community.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:IWSC

Such misleading narrative about a “war” has been exaggerated in order to prove 
to WMF it was a bad call to allow more than one user group in the same region. 
But it isn’t. Many countries have more than one group. In fact, a fairly amount 
of healthy competition may lead to more initiatives. Such artificial narrative 
ended up hurting both sides.

This, of course, doesn’t mean there hasn’t been mistakes and conflicts among 
specific members. For sure some conflicts were very unproductive and made us 
spend energy in unfruitful discussions. But most members from both groups were 
genuinely interested in a peaceful and constructive relationship, being 
critical of other members’ refusal to mediation, dialogue and insistence on 
extended personal conflicts.

I have tried informal mediation and requested WMF formal mediation several 
times. But no formal support was given, just disciplinary measures. This may be 
something to learn for the future.  

We are moving forward with the professionalization and incorporation of our 
user group since 2016, in a very slow process, with very few answers received 
from AffCom during this process.

Recent timeline of interactions with AffCom:
19/12/2016 We sent a message to AffCom, regarding our affiliation status 
update, because we were working to incorporate our user group as requested by 
the Grants team.

07/01/2017 We received an answer from Carlos Colina requesting more information 
and our bylaws (originally in portuguese since he speaks portuguese for a first 
evaluation)

02/04/2017 We requested a conversation with members of the User Group Wikimedia 
Brazil durgin WMCON (they refused to talk), so during Wikimedia Conference I 
had a quick conversation with Kirill, about the bylaws sent to Carlos Colina 
and the general situation in Brazil.

03/05/2017 We received a new message from Aff requesting the translated by laws

 06/2017 I requested mediation from AffCom/Iberocoop to have a conversation 
between both groups during Iberoconf in Argentina as informed in our comments 
(https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Iberocoop:Iberoconf_2017/Preguntas_y_necesidades),
 User Group Wikimedia Brasil refused to talk, so we had a conversation only 
with Galileo and Carlos Colina from AffCom and we never received any feedback 
from this conversation.

26/10/2017 We received a message informing that they received the translated 
bylaws for evaluation, no comments about conflicts or problem between the user 
groups were cited.

08/04/2018 We received the revocation notice of our affiliation status


I deeply believe in the Wikimedia movement. We have started and signed several 
partnerships and projects which be developed during the following years. So, 
with or without recognition, support or grants from the Foundation, we will 
continue to work, to advocate for open knowledge and to fix the current 
situation in Brazil.

We will move on. It will be more difficult and slow, but we will always move 
forward.

Hello all,

Yesterday we participated in a TV program at Futura Channel (an important 
educational tv channel in Brasil) talking about collaboration and Wikipedia, 
including some information about our scientific event 
http://ccbwiki.wikimedia.org.br/.

The video is published online and listed in our site at 
http://www.wikimedia.org.br/participacao%20no%20canal%20futura (PT only)

That is the first Brazilian participation in a TV program with good local

Dear Rodrigo

Wikimedia India has also launched an edit-a-thon on a similar theme. This
edit-a-thon has a focus on celebrating the Olympics with a focus of Indian
Sportspersons. We plan to create articles on Indian sportspersons in 18
Indic languages..

Edit-a-thon page -
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WMIN/Events/India_At_Rio_Olympics_2016_Edit-a-thon

What I was thinking here is that in case you get pictures of Indian
athletes, we can include them in the articles created in this edit-a-thon.
Maybe you can create a sub category for Indian athletes..

This event aims to bring together students, teachers and researchers with 
projects and publications about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects and their

We are almost done and soon we will announce our official website and call for 
papers. Articles and poster will be accepted. 

The Wikimedia Foundation has validated our logo [2] and the use of the

We are using as inspiration the events organized by Wikimedia UK[3] and

We are trying to bring to Brazil some important keynotes from our movement. If 
someone from this list is interested in coming to visit us, let's keep in touch!

That event is under organization in a very organic and experimental way, with 
no funding from WMF to see the impact and interest from the local academic 
community. Based on the results and impacts we will try to do something bigger 
in 2017.

All the content produced during the event will be published in CC licenses

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Scholarship Decline

2016-03-21 Thread Rodrigo Padula
I had a conversation with Vitor Mazuco about this email and agreed with his 
point of view.

Analyzing the list of users from Brazil that received schollarships from WMF 
during the last years, I noted that WMF/Scholarship Committees are always 
supporting the same group of people not generating opportunities for new 
people(and very important contributors) to join and enjoy Wikimania.

Including, some of the users that received support to go to Wikimania never 
provided any feedback to our community regarding Wikimania experience, 
learnings, knowledge acquired or any kind of reports.

I think the scholarship committee should take in consideration those who have 
been to the event several times, so that we can also include more people, 
increasing the Wikimania's diversity in all possible ways, avoid so many 
repetitions engaging more people into this international movement.

I'm not saying that the users that received support in recent years do not 
deserve this support, my point is that we have more people who also deserve to 
go to Wikimania and never get this opportunity, sometimes it disengage our 
volunteers.

The mail goal of that discussion is to see similar cases around the globe and

Rodrigo,

I really don't mean to be negative, but the appropriate forum to discuss
the merits of the decision is in the topic open in wikipt about it. About
the form, using sitenotice for external social media reach, I can see a
reasoning to debate this here, but discussing if it is/will be effective
seems out place. This decision should be, and seemly will continue to be, a
community decision.
Excuse-me if I read too much into the message.

Best regards,
Chico Venancio

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Facebook marketing inside pt.wikipedia

2016-02-19 Thread Rodrigo Padula
During the WLE an WLM 2015 we created and published some paid campaigns inside 
Facebook to reach more people and bring people from Facebook to our contest's 
pages inside Wikipedia.

IMHO that it's a good approach, but add a direct link inside wikipedia to 
commercial sites/social networks are not a good idea, mainly thinking about 
privacy, net neutrality and compatibility with our movement mission. In that 
way we are redirecting people from Wikipedia to external sites.

The other problem is, don't matter if we have 5.000 or 1.000.000 of likes in a 
Facebook page, to reach that public we always have to pay Facebook ads to 
increase reach.

The Facebook is always cutting post's reach to stimulate publishers to pay more 
money to reach more people.

Basically we reach more people and get more views and clicks adding USD$10,00 
to a Facebook post than having a page with 100.000 likes.

Including, offer an option to promote paid ads only to people that liked your 
page and their friends.

So, it's getting hard to grow on Facebook in a organic way, don't matter how 
many likes or friends do you have.

The Macedonian community has also had success attracting attention to their
social media channels via Facebook etc. links on sitenotice for a while. I
believe they reached a staggering number of likes (~35000 was it?), from
next to nothing. Those social media channels seem to have been used to
considerable effect in drawing attention and attracting contributors to
events like WLM.

This was discussed at the Wikimedia Central and Eastern European Meeting
2014. Notes from that session are still on Etherpad[1].

2015-10-31 Thread Rodrigo Padula
We did a long research in 2014 to define the prizes as described in the budget 
request and reports to WMF.

A lot of contests in Brasil pay prizes around R$10.000-R$60.000, the value of 
the prizes that we gave in Brasil are considered low by many participants and 
professionals in that field.

As described on the grant requests, the prizes was approved by GAC and WMF 
staff my friend.

I really cant get your point here! You had the opportunity to organize this 
contest for many years and nothing was done.

Why you never tried to organize that contests by yourself following your 
recomendations, ideas and values of prizes since you are so interested in that 
subject?



Our planning pages are always open to contributions, not fallacies. To 
criticize is always the easiest way to feel contributing. Just do something my 
friend and help us to move forward, not backward!

Only to complete, the first place on WLE 2014 was elected the second place on 
the WLE 2014 International and that same picture was selected in 7# place 
during the picture of the year on commons.

Now in 2015 we have more pictures selected in the WLE international contest.

2015-10-31 Thread Rodrigo Padula
I cant see any relation in the "literature" regarding photo contests prizes and 
monthly average wage :-)

So our study was based on local photo contests prizes, international prizes and 
a reasonable value for a non-profit organization in a way that the value is 
interesting for a amateur or a professional to spend some time loading photos 
on commons, since great part of the Brazilians don't know our mission and what 
Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons our Wikimedia Foundation really is!

During WLE 2015 we spent R$10.000 in two categories: best photo and best 
contributions 

For each category the prizes was: 

1º R$2000
2º R$1500
3º R$1000
TOTAL: R$10.000

- 4.453 photos
- 411 uploaders

Now for WLM 2015 we announced just one category, best photos with R$6.000 in 
prizes

1º R$3.000,00
2º R$2.000,00
3º R$1.000,00 
TOTAL: R$6.000

- ~13.000 photos
- ~2.000 uploaders

There are a lot of variables, but the value of the prizes and categories can 
influence the final results for sure.

Since R-Argenton provided some messages written by me in public opposition
against R-Padula in the past year, let's me write few lines updating the
subject.

R-Padula acted in many disruptive ways in a very complex Game of Thrones
WMF edition that ended in project results and partial lost of community
interest. Emphasis on partial. I'll explain it in another point of this
message. Let's say that R-Padula is our local Petyr Baelish.

R-Argenton for years is behind brazilian volunteers most of time on yet
more disruptive ways plus doing almost nothing on online projects or even
on outreach activities. Argenton may replies to it as "because I'm
blocked!" and I leaves to those who may be interested to think for the
reasons a community will choose to block a very experienced contributor.

Please don't read this as I advocating for Padula. Quite the opposite, I'm
only suggesting to ignore the bad mood from Argenton and really focus on
measurements and governance points proposed by Fæ.

Time to write few lines about the "partial lost of community interest"
point.

The now defunct Programa Catalisador do Brasil revealed the bad side of
some people (R-Argenton excluded from this, at least) and created a very
interesting GoT WMF remix that ended in many political fights exactly as on
the HBO series. But the community members where all benevolent zombies,
sometimes attending events, but most of time doing nothing. Nothing at all.

I personally leaved any attempt to do 'real-world' things after the renew
of Wikimedia Community User Group Brasil (not to be confused with the UG
that R-Padula is the leader). As far I can see, the last action of that UG
was to get renewed and eventually being present on Wikimania... Well, I
*really* don't want to say any more on this UG.

My current involvement to WMF is only to do random things on Wikisource and
Wikidata as I can do random things on any website, without further
interest. Not only due to the GoT WMF.br remixed edition, but also for many
issues on a more global level (WMF is constantly contracting new staff and
their servers are most unstable than back in 2004-2005... Only in sake of
example, since there are REALLY many issues, T71311
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T71311;, a huge data loss, is still
unsolved most due to the laziness of the involved staff while in any normal
entity it may result in an entire team working until solve it... should I
do anything on governance issues related to resources allocated to Brazil
while in the meantime the WMF is doing anything on their own governance,
only spending money on fees until gets bankrupt and with all data lost
forever in a huge bug not so hypothetical as many of you think? Not ever).
So, please, don't refer anymore to any past message written by me,
R-Argenton and any other portuguese-speaking person.

If the money collected by the WMF is bad spent in Brazil maybe is because
the WMF is entirely at this moment only bad spending their resources. So
there is no need to demonize R-Padula, since the entire WMF should stop
in different ways to reinvent the wheel and start producting things that
uses wheels.

2015-10-31 Thread Rodrigo Padula
Hello Illario and Jane,

Thanks by your comments. That is exactly the point!

WLM and WLE are not only about the number of pictures loaded and the general 
quality of the pictures. It's about our mission and new users engagement too.

That is what our group is trying to do here, teach people about our mission and 
what Wikipedia and commons really is and how to contribute. Unfortunately we 
receive more international community support than local support #SadButTrue.

As you can read in all planning pages, grant requests and emails, Rodrigo 
Argentom is always there trying to create barriers, posting negative comments 
and generating unfruitiful discussions. We never received any contribution or 
constructive comment from him, so I decided to just ignore him and move forward 
with our ideas and objectives. Based on that bad behavior he was blocked in 
many Wikimedia projects (pt.wikipedia and etc) and as I know, he is not part of 
any group, he is only around with that old trash talking.

Based on the level of maturity of our Brazilian community and the low interest 
of that community in off-line activities like WLM, WLE, GLAM and etc, is a 
utopia to think that in a single project we will collect a huge amount of 
pictures, with high level of quality and that all the photographers will join 
on commons, will categorize properly all the pictures and they will look at 
Wikipedia and will add the good pictures there, it will never happens here, not 
without a massive support from the local community.

We will have to do it in many steps, right now we are just a small user group 
trying to move forward, we are not a chapter with payed staff and a lot of 
people working on this full time, we are just a group of students, teachers and 
researchers doing what we can, when we can.

The WLE and WLM are generating a good impact in Brasil with a good media 
coverage and a lot of positive external comments.

We had many posts published on blogs, important portals, printed 
magazines(60.000 copies) and newspapers regarding the contest, spreading our 
objectives and the final results.

- WLE 2015 media coverage: 
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Earth_2015_in_Brazil/Planning#Mat.C3.A9rias_na_m.C3.ADdia
- WLM event page access statistics: 
http://stats.grok.se/pt/latest90/Wikip%C3%A9dia:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2015/Brasil
- WLM 2015 media coverage: 
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Monuments_2015_in_Brazil/Planning#Publica.C3.A7.C3.B5es

For both contests we used strategies and campaigns on social media, reaching 
hundreds of thousands of people.

During WLM we get an important structured list of monuments from the Brazilian

I totally agree with Ilario here. We have yet to put a financial value on a
Wikimedia contributor time unit, but I would venture to say that if such
projects manage to procure even one Wikimedia contributor for the projects
then that is money well spent.

 30.000 is exact, but they are 30.000 Real which means 11.000 USD.

 Cool. So about $2.50 per image.

 This looks expensive compared to my upload projects (the last 500,000
 images have cost $0.00 in total) but perhaps the benchmark is better

 measures against other WLM projects.

 Anyone have the numbers to show comparative value?

 Using a bot to collect images in internet probably would have been lesser
 than 0$ per image.

 Anyway the real calculation of an impact of a project is not so simple.

 Because if we would use the same parameters, people reading this thread
 have spent more than 5 minutes, and calculating the sum of people reading
 this thread we can calculate a big time waste.

 We can say that this thread is really time-expensive without producing a

Argentom, only to demonstrate how wrong and misinformed you are, the guy you 
cited on your email is a very active contributor with more than 50.000 edits on 
the main domain of pt.wikipedia and near 100.000 edits including all domains. 
Thinking in personal privacy, it is not a good approach to point here names and 
social media accounts, that is why I will not identify the user name of this 
very important contributor of our movement.

As you can read on the official announcement 
http://www.wikimedia.org.br/wiki-loves-monuments-brasil-2015-vencedores.html 
all the pictures uploaded for WLM was evaluated and filtered by teachers and 
students of the University http://www.ucs.br/portais/curso164/ under the 
coordination of the Prof. Edson Correa. All press releases and content 
published and sent to our media partners was created and revised by the teacher 
Prof. Dr. Marcio Gonçalves and students from a local university in Rio de 
Janeiro.

I know you're just trying to attack me personally, but what you are doing is 
disqualifying all the efforts of all Wikimedia movement responsible for 
devising and organizing competitions like the WLE and WLM around the world and 
for that you have no contributions and much less support any group that can 
give you legitimacy for this.

I recommend to you to change your strategy and try to do something positive for 
the Wikimedia Movement and for your life.

Your votes against and all that hate speech will not take you anywhere.

"success of WLE Brasil 2015"

Success for whom?

*For the Wikimedia Commons **it was totally **innocuous. *

Less then 0,16% was a good quality image, including several snapshots
(mobile made), downsized images; the retention probably will follow WLE
BR 2014 and goona be very close to 0. No work was developed in conjunction
with the WCommons, and could created a problem, people got paid with
thousands for bad photos, and volunteers there producing real content...
And this money, more then 30'000 USD, come from WMF for the WLE 2014/15 and
WLM in Brazil, and in the other hand, WP-en removed hundreds of people
getting paid for contribution, how it's different? Oh yeah, the money did
not came from donations...

*For the Wikipedia it was barely nothing.*

The volume of images used was very low, and even in the list of winners, a
lot of those images do not have any education purpose, or do not properly
illustrates the site. And very low involvement of the community, retention
was none.

For the "off-line community" , :D...

Were are this people? The other coordinator named in the website [1], are
not even close to be involved with the community, check his FB:[2], very
active, none WLE/WLM publications... Commons: [3], any help with this
contests. People listed in the WUG group did not signed by themselves[4]...

And " including contributions from teachers and students..."??? "educational
program."??? I think that "they" are hidden it in a very deep place, not
even "their" website have any clues fof that[5], or "their" Facebook [6],
Meta [7]... "Their" partners are not related to educational programmes [8],
most of them are related to photography, for obvious reasons. as far we can
see, "they" are just burn WMF money to make this contests (for ???)...

*Two observation:*

 .ORG.BR are websites restricted to ONG registered in legal terms here in
Brazil, or they already have a legal association and are not telling to
AffCom, or they don't have that and is putting the Wikimedia name in
some scheme
circumventing laws...


*The scope of the group, which can be found on their application, is "to
support the participation of teachers, researchers and employees of several
national institutions that participate in the Education Program of
Wikimedia in Brazil, aiming to integrate the academic community to the
Wikimedia movement, creating a more friendly and responsive environment for
the development of projects, research, contests, events and other
activities." *[9]

How this contests are related to this scope?


Again

Success for whom?

2015-10-30 Thread Rodrigo Padula
Hello my friends,

After many years of Wiki Loves Monuments around the world, finally we organized 
an edition of that important photo contest  in Brasil.

Following the success of WLE Brasil 2015(supported by our fellows from 
Wikimedia Ukraine)  and counting with a lot of support from Romaine we finally 
completed that task after years of procrastination.

The WLM Brasil 2015 was organized by the Wikimedia Community Brazilian Group of 
Education and Research, including contributions from teachers and students in a 
new approach for our educational program.

Teachers and students from local universities supported us with 
marketing/communication and in the final process of pictures filtering for the 
judges evaluation.

You can see the final result of WLM Brasil and the winners at 
http://www.wikimedia.org.br/wiki-loves-monuments-brasil-2015-vencedores.html

Pictures uploaded: 4.443
Uploaders: 411
New users registered on Commons:  325
New users engagement: 79%
Pictures user on Wikipedia: 86 (2%)

That page is suggesting some sort of non-derivative variant (saying that
you should not 3d-print it in colour (also strangely specifying the metal
to silver, excluding more common 3d-printing metals such as aluminium or
stee, all the while there are pins in the Wikimedia Store that, judged by
the price, probably not are silver)). I thought the logo was under a CC
BY-SA license.

It is also strange that it does not allow printing it in, for instance a
blue plastic, to later paint white with black letters. Is there any special
meaning behind that or is it just vague wording? I.e. is it supposed to
target steps in the manufacturing process rather than the end result?


 The file itself is at

 
https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/File:Wikipedia_puzzle_globe_3D_render.zip
 , in "Autodesk Maya" format.


That file description page is unclear on the license. Could someone fix
that?

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Number of new User Groups

2015-10-18 Thread Rodrigo Padula
IMHO, the idea of the user groups is not to divide the community, the main goal 
is to create the opportunity for small communities to work in the same 
direction, learn with each other and have a framework to work together, 
learning from and sharing experiences.



The user group is an important step to move forward to a thematic organization 
or chapter based on the learnings and experiences acquired after some projects 
and activities. It can be a good opportunity to professionalize the community 
and avoid frustrated attempts to create a chapter or thematic organization with 
no previous experience.



For sure we will need more guidance and dedicated activities during the next 
conference in Berlin. Having a dedicated event, IMHO will not generate the same 
opportunity that we have to learn from chapters like WM UK, WM MX, WM DE and 
etc in an event like WMCON.



For me, the opportunity to see what active chapters are doing was crucial to 
organize here in Brazil 2 editions of WLE and our first edition of WLM.



I guess we are in the right direction and the types of grants available, 
including the new simple annual plan project, will generate excellent impacts 
to the movement during the next years.

  Subject: [Wikimedia-l] Number of new User Groups

 

  It's nice to see the recent momentum in the formation of user groups. 
Can

  Affcom shed some light on what may be causing the burst of announced

  formations?

 

  Relatedly, I'm wondering if the number of UGs is now so high that the

  budget and/or programmatic capacity of WMCON will be a bit stretched 
to

  accomodate all of the UGs in addition to the larger affiliates. I was

  thinking that it would be good to have a track at WMCON devoted to 
small

  affiliates, but now I'm starting to wonder if there are so many of us,

 with

  interests and concerns hopefully now more visible on WMF's radar due 
to

 our

  increased numbers, that it would make sense to have separate 
conferences

  for the large and small affiliates so that undivided attention from 
WMF

 can

  be given more evenly to both size classes of affiliates for the 
duration

 of

  a conference. Any thoughts about those options, from Affcom, WMF, 
WMDE,

 or

  others?

[Wikimedia-l] Wiki Loves Earth - Statistics tool

2015-05-13 Thread Rodrigo Padula
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

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

2015-05-06 Thread Rodrigo Padula
Hello my friends,

I didn't have the opportunity to organize a WLM contest yet, but I had the
opportunity to organize the Brazilian WLE last year and I'm promoting that
same contest here in Brasil this year again.

Quantitative analysis are always easier to do than qualitative analysis. In
that case WMF is always trying to show how the money was spent, how much
and the direct impact of that effort.

So, basically we are always measuring using metrics of the conversion of
money/time to edits/new users engagement and retention.

IMHO, WLE and WLM are bigger than this and these projects are very complex
with many types of results and direct and mainly, indirect impacts to the
Wikimedia Projects and movement in general.

By example, last year we organized an exhibition
https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikip%C3%A9dia:Wiki_Loves_Earth_2014/Brasil/Exposi%C3%A7%C3%A3o
with the TOP500  photos collected during the WLE Brasil 2014. So, during
that exhibition so many people from many classes, ages, cities and level of
knowledge passed by the exhibition and read the contest descriptions and
they got more information regarding the Photo Contest, WLE, Wikipedia,
Commons and the Wikimedia movement. Since we can't track the visitors
behavior after the exhibition, we cant say anything regarding the results
of that activity based on the regular metrics, used by default. So, based
in things like that we cant publish any final report with the real impact
of the exhibition translated in some numbers.IMHO that report regarding WLM
don't reflect the real impact of the contest, we can see there only some
simple numbers and conversions and this kind of report can generate a lot
of misunderstanding when accessed by the regular media.

 Hi Sam,

 I am sure there are figures and stories that the various orgs collect and
 publish. But they are spread across different wikis and websites and/or
 languages. E.g. many of the FDC orgs are looking into ways to demonstrate
 these more qualitative aspects of our work (e.g. by storytelling) in their
 reports.
 But these information does not get the same attention and publicity in the
 wider community as the evaluation done by the WMF. Many WMAT volunteers and
 I myself share the concerns expressed by Romaine that these unidimensional
 numbers and lack of context foster misconceptions or even prejudices
 especially in the parts of the community that are not closely involved in
 the work of the respective groups and orgs.

 At such it is fine that WMF is writing an evaluation, however they fail

 evaluation report.

 As a result on the Wiki Loves Monuments mailing list a discussion grows
 about the various problems the evaluation has.

 As the Learning and Evaluation team at the Wikimedia Foundation already
 had
 released the first Programs Reports for Wiki Loves Monuments, we are now
 put as fait accompli with this evaluation report.

 Therefore I am writing here so that the rest of the worldwide Wikimedia

 Wiki Loves Monuments is not just a bunch of uploads done in September,
 the
 report is too simplified without actual understanding how the community
 is
 doing this project.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Recognition of Wikimedia Community Brazilian Group of Education and Research

2015-04-13 Thread Rodrigo Padula
Oh my god!!

A guy that was blocked in many Wikimedia projects due to bad behavior come
here to talk about trust sounds funny.

One of the reasons I have focused on work with some teachers and serious
people to create a new proposal of a user group was just that, keep them away
from these fallacies and old discussions regarding the creation of a chapter
.

All these problems and deconstructive arguments keeps people away from the
Wikimedia movement in Brazil.

With this new proposal and the new group recently approved, I intend to work in
another direction, focused more on projects and results than trash talking.

The recognition of AffCom and WMF is only the first step. You surely will
receive frequent reports of our activities and results over the next months.

Thanks to all members of the AffCom, Iberocoop and other chapters by the
support and knowledge shared during the last year, that culminated with
that recognized proposal.

During the next months/years we will try to keep in touch to learn from
your experiences and activities.

Best regards to everyone.

 How that happened?

 This group presented objectives based on Education and Research, but all
 actives showed  was not even close to the educational scope.


- Activities:

 https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Brazilian_Group_of_Education_and_Research#Projects_and_Activities
 :
Wiki Loves Earth, not academic, Campus Party Brasil, not even close to

academic, edit-a-thon outside the academic world... Book chapter
 regarding
Wikipedia Education Program in Brasil = work made trough the WMF
 Catalyst
Programme, not a WUG activity = scheming to seem more important than it
is...

 AffCom recently renewal another WUG group here in Brazil that do not do any
 activities, and uses chapters tools, and do not give us any criteria used
 to explain the renewal, you will give the whys here?

 And the creator of this group do not even have the trusty from the ones who
 adopted him when he arrived at the Wikimedia Movement in Brazil:

 I really do not understand what is happening to this group and what's on
 your
 minds. Helped sling it and defend it and then I was shooed away
 without any defined
 process or transparency [1] the group that he is talking is the first WUG
 created here in Brazil, the dorm one mentioned above, that using the WMF
 Brazil Programme + AffCom closed the WMBR initiative (hooray!). And some of
 them clearly showed to be oppose to that:[2]


 AffCom acts very strange when the topic is Brazil, the WMBR proposal, after
 years do not received any justification to why they want so bad to avoid
 [3], they force a creation of a new group to assume the leadership in
 Brazil, and now are approving another chapter initiative with headers that
 not even the guys that the AffCom put against WMBR to create the WUG-BR,
 trust...

Hello Fae,

Are you generating json somewhere or thiking to create an API for that
information?

I have some ideas that I started to develop last year, I will ping you in

Best regards and thanks by helping us with the important information.

 Now the run has been running a bit longer, it can be seen[1] that the
 real sink is the logging table from wikidata. Other projects are
 pretty quick from a few minutes to Commons taking half an hour.
 Wikidata takes 7 hours for each query. It's a big log!

 I am testing out separating wikidata from the other queries, so this
 might get the majority done much more quickly. Either way, all the
 reports should be finished within about 3 days. After that the monthly
 updates should be done within an afternoon. :-)

 I am glad the tables are useful, hopefully stimulating more positive
 use of the thanks notifier by contributors.
 
 The reports are updating *slowly*, currently at April 2014... This is
 in part because of the WMFlabs outage yesterday, though in general any
 report of the logging table is going to be slow (it is the largest
 table on the wiki database). The first run-through will take several
 days as it is going back through all of 2014. Once it is only
 reporting on the previous month, I suspect it will finish monthly
 updates within the first first day.
 
  Hi.
 
  Hmm, I'm not sure how you're measuring largest, but I imagine on most
  wikis there are more rows in the revision table than there are in the
  logging table. For example, on the English Wikipedia, there are
  approximately 598,859,006 rows in the revision table and 62,731,285 rows
  in the logging table. I suspect on most wikis, revision, text, and maybe
  archive would typically be larger than logging, except in weird cases
  such as loginwiki[_p]. And then of course there are the *links tables.
 But
  it depends on whether you're comparing size on disk or number of rows.

 Yes I got it wrong! :-)

  You probably want to use logging_userindex instead of logging. The former
  is typically significantly faster due to the way we use table views.

 That's how it works. The key line is
 SELECT log_user_text, count(log_action)
 FROM {}wiki_p.logging_userindex

 Where {} iterates over wiki short names.

  I have a bit of experience with database reports. Off-hand I'd say it
  should be possible to query all of this information in under an hour.
 With
  the index on logging[_userindex].log_action, even a large table such as
  logging shouldn't be too awful to query for this information. If you have
  queries that are taking a very long time, we should probably investigate.

 Maybe, I have experimented a little with ways of writing the query
 (such as using log_user rather than log_user_text) but have not found
 a magic trick yet. Remember I'm reporting all of 2014 first. After
 this first run, the time taken is unlikely to be noticed by anyone, so
 volunteer time vs. processing time will mean I'll probably get on with
 other projects, rather than spending my wiki-time making this SQL
 based report more efficient. Naturally, if someone wants to offer me
 some funding, or bribes me by nominating my Commons RFA, I'll look
 again. ;-)

 Cheers,
 Fae

 I have now set up a monthly report of the top 10 thankers /
 thankees with an index to the different project reports on the above
 link. These have been generated retrospectively for 2014 and I will
 shortly set this up on WMF labs to run at the beginning of each month
 to add last month's results.*

 Rather than running this automatically for several hundred projects, I
 am happy to add projects on request (so long as the thanks extension
 is being regularly used by more than 10 people!). Just drop a note on
 my meta talk page to request the addition. I have haphazardly picked 6
 of the busiest projects to get started on, mainly as a multi-language
 test, not because I favour one language Wikipedia over another. :-)

 Time for someone to create a thank you barnstar of super thanks ?

 This is one of many ad-hoc reports run as Faebot, but if it becomes
 especially useful or critical to outreach projects I'll consider
 moving a stable version to a special bot account or similar.

 * - At the time of writing, the tables for 2014 are being generated.
 This may take the rest of the day to complete! If your project has
 recently been added, the reports might have to wait for the next
 monthly run depending on how much free wiki-time I have.

 Nobody ever said that the Catalyst was a total failure. It had indeed good
 points. The thing is that I am not the only one with the opinion that the
 results were clearly not good enough for what was expected from all money
 invested and it is quite not fair to compare them with a volunteer effort
 with obviously less resources.

 Catalyst was cited 3 times in all report, and its members were always kind
 and helpful on relating with User Group. Sometimes they were just the
 contact and other times they were crucial for the work, but there were also
 other moments in which they had absolutely nothing to do with what was done
 by User Group members.

 It actually just doesn't serve as a good measure, nor comparison to
 evaluate Catalyst Program.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Renewal of Recognition to Wikimedia Community User Group Brasil

2015-02-23 Thread Rodrigo Padula
Hello Carlos,

Thanks by all information regarding the new Affcom's decisions for an
user group renewal.

Only to clarify, my question was based on  the Wikimedia User Group
Agreement where is specified that an User Group and its agents must
submit a written activity report in English to the community each
year.

More specifically, on the item  3.Your Obligations.

You and your User Group must:  d.submit, as instructed by WMF, an
annual written activity report in English to the Wikimedia community
and WMF;

This obligation changed too?

My point is not to cause any trouble, I'm asking it here only because
we, the members and people that endorsed the Wikimedia Community User
Group Brasil did not receive any information regarding the renewal
application or any report was published on pt.wikipedia or
br.wikimedia.org.

Best regards

Rodrigo Padula

2015-02-22 10:23 GMT-03:00 Carlos M. Colina ma...@wikimedia.org.ve:
 Dear Rodrigo,

 The requirements for WUGs are very simple and the Affiliation Committee has
 been working recently on making the process of renewing the recognition of
 WUGs as straighforward as possible, since it is something relatively new and
 we have seen there is plenty of room for improvement..

 This means that in the event a WUG is complying with the basic recognition
 requirements, is not transgreding basic rules of conduct against other
 wikimedians and there are actively committed Wikimedians behind it working
 to advance the mission of our movement, the Affiliations Committee will
 continue recognizing it as a movement affiliate and would encourage other
 volunteers to either join it, create another one, or simply work as an
 individual, which is perfectly valid.

 For the AffCom, the simple will expressed from the contact persons from a
 specific WUG regarding their interest in renovating the recognition is
 considered enough proof of activity, along with some details provided in the
 communication. There is no need for a report of activities with a raised
 seal and stuff :-).

 I hope this clarifies any doubt you have about the recognition of the WCUG
 Brasil.

 Thank you,
 Carlos

Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Wikimedia France] Creation of a scientific committee

2015-01-13 Thread Rodrigo Padula
Awesome!

Excellent idea!

2015-01-13 9:36 GMT-02:00 Christophe Henner christophe.hen...@wikimedia.fr:
 Hi everyone,

 First of all, I wish everyone a happy new year.

 Even if the first days of 2015 were tainted by violence, we also witnessed
 people shouting how freedom is important. I hope 2015 will be at the image
 of the latter.

 Now, to the announcement.

 As you might know, Wikimedia France is working hard at improving its
 governance. A gap we identified month ago was that we lacked external point
 of views regarding our activities.

 In order to fix that, we created a scientific committee. This committee is
 a test, it doesn't exist in our bylaws. So, in 2015, we're trying this out
 to see if it can help us better do our work.

 This first committee is chaired by Rémi Mathis, my awesome and wonderful
 predecessor. It has 8 members, including Rémi :

- *Dominique Cardon*, sociologist at Orange Labs laboratory and
associate professor at Marne-la-Vallée university (
http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominique_Cardon)
- *Camille François*, Fellow at Harvard Law School’s Berkman Center for
Internet and Society
- *Laurent Le Bon*, Chief curator, director of Picasso-Paris national
musuem (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurent_Le_Bon)
- *Frédéric Martel*, journalist, writer and producer at France Culture
(French public radio) (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fr%C3%A9d%C3%A9ric_Martel)
- *Rémi Mathis*, former Wikimédia France chair, historian, curator (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%A9mi_Mathis)
- *Louise Merzeau*, associate professor at Paris Ouest university in
information sciences (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louise_Merzeau)
- *Henri Verdier*, Etalab director , Chief Data Officer for France (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henri_Verdier)
- *Cédric Villani*, mathématician, Fields Medalist (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C%C3%A9dric_Villani)


 Those 8 persons will meet for the first time this week to better understand
 what Wikimedia is. For the coming year, we will ask their inputs and
 opinions on what we're doing and planning to do for free knowledge.

 As said earlier, this is a test. We will try to share as much as we can our
 feedback on how it goes and if it's useful for Wikimedia France.

 The announcement in french is available on our blog :
 http://blog.wikimedia.fr/wikimedia-france-cree-son-conseil-scientifique-7059

 If you have any question feel free to ask here or to Rémi and I off-list.

 All the best,

 Christophe HENNER | Président

[Wikimedia-l] Wiki Loves Earth Brasil - Exhibition

2014-10-15 Thread Rodrigo Padula
Hello fellows!

Concluding our participation and activities on Wiki Loves Earth, we
organized an exhibition during the event Paraty em Foco in the
historical city of Paraty - Rio de Janeiro.

During the event (Sep 24-28) the exhibition received near 1.500
visitors daily and the exhibition continued until October 12.

The exhibition was exhibited inside the Casa da Cultura, an historical
building constructed during the 18th century
(https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wiki_Loves_Earth_Brasil_2014_-_Exhibition_-_Casa_da_Cultura.JPG)
that is a cultural reference in the region.

Students from the near islands/beaches visited the exhibition during
Paraty em Foco, as you can see here http://migre.me/mihhY

I've published some pictures and information about the exhibition here
https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikip%C3%A9dia:Wiki_Loves_Earth_2014/Brasil/Exposi%C3%A7%C3%A3o
(in portuguese)

We received a lot of visibility during the WLE, generating excellent
results for Wikimedia Commons. Near 900 new users and 7.000 photos
uploaded.

The contest and exhibition was published in many sites and blogs,
including a printed magazine with 50.000 copies distributed around all
Brazilian states.

Some important links:

 Dear all,

 It is an honour for me to announce that during Wikimania, the WMF resolved
 [1] to recognise Wikimedia Belgium as a Wikimedia chapter. The resolution
 was made public a few days ago.

 The first discussions towards the establishment of a Belgian chapter
 started many years ago, with the local community doing projects related to
 freedom of knowledge since then, like organisation of WLM Belgium 
 Luxembourg in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Along with these and other activities,
 the idea of a chapter grew and evolved to the moment when, the decision was
 taken to start officially the chapter creation process.

 This process took longer than usual, due to many reasons, among those the
 change in the chapter approval process by the WMF Board last year.
 Nevertheless, after months of intensive discussion and interaction between
 all parties involved, a recommendation from the AffCom was sent to the WMF
 regarding Wikimedia Belgium. And here we are :-)

 Please welcome the newest member of the family of Wikimedia affiliates!

 Regards,
 Carlos

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Bangladesh has completed its local registration in Bangladesh

Congratulations to all members of the Wikimedia Bangladesh!

2014-06-10 14:28 GMT-03:00 Tonmoy Khan tonmoy...@gmail.com:

 Dear All,


 It gives me great pleasure to announce that Wikimedia Bangladesh (WMBD) has
 successfully completed its local registration in Bangladesh. Our
 application for registration was approved by the Registrar of Joint Stock
 Companies  Firms - Bangladesh on 9th June, 2014 and I have collected the
 certificate of registration today (10th June, 2014).



 Wikimedia Bangladesh has been registered under the Societies Registration
 Act of Bangladesh  our official name is Wikimedia Bangladesh Foundation.

 The registration process was a very long and demanding one, but our
 perseverance and determination finally prevailed. It has become very
 difficult to get registration of a society/foundation in Bangladesh as the
 incumbents have to have security clearance from the National Security
 Intelligence (NSI) of Bangladesh, which is very difficult to get if not
 impossible. In the course of dealing with the registration process of WMBD,
 I learned that less than 5 applications for registration as societies get
 approved out of every 100. We submitted our application in May 2012 and it
 took us a little over two years to get the security clearance from NSI 
 complete all the bureaucratic process!


 It gives us a great sense of achievement that we could uphold the Wikimedia
 movement volunteerism spirit with passion, integrity and professionalism
 despite being a small volunteer community. The pending registration issue
 could not hold us from doing outreach activities locally  taking in the
 greater Wikimedia Movement. We organized some excellent programs, workshops
  meet-ups with our limited resources during this time period. This effort
 successfully brought in good number of new contributors to Bengali
 Wikipedia  increased the article count. Volunteers from WMBD/Bangladesh
 are also actively participating in the international Wikimedia movement by
 taking part in discussions, conferences  as committee members in different
 Wikimedia committees.



 We, as a chapter, want to make small but steady steps towards sustainable
 progress in fostering the Wikimedia movement in Bangladesh so that we can
 make the sum of all human knowledge accessible to the people of this
 region.


 Cheers

 Today, our organization celebrates anniversary - 5 years from the date
 of creation.

 Exactly 5 years ago, on May 31, 2009, in Kyiv was held the constituent
 meeting, which approved the bylaws and elected its first Board of the new
 organization, known as Wikimedia Ukraine.

 Our community has gone through a long and difficult path. Birthday of
 Wikimedia Ukraine for our community is the third remarkable date this
 year. On January 30 was the 10th anniversary of the establishment of
 Ukrainian Wikipedia and on May 12 Ukrainian Wikipedia has crossed the
 threshold of 500 000 articles.

 We want to thank to Wikimedia Foundation Inc. for their help, to our
 neighboring communities for fruitful cooperation with us and of course
 to our community for their contributions!

 Dear all,

 Pavel Richter has been Wikimedia Deutschland’s Executive Director since
 2009. Over the course of the past five years he has established an
 organizational structure that serves as a solid basis for Wikimedia
 Deutschland’s free knowledge mission.

 For quite some time the Supervisory Board has been striving for a different
 strategic course for Wikimedia Deutschland, which will be illustrated by
 the strategy paper to be introduced at the coming general assembly. The
 Supervisory Board has come to the conclusion that it will not be able to
 implement this paper with the current Executive Director. Thus, the
 Supervisory Board and the Executive Director have agreed on jointly shaping
 a well-ordered transition.

 The association and Pavel Richter have agreed on a mutual separation to
 take place. There will be talks regarding the modalities of an amicable
 arrangement. On behalf of the Supervisory Board of Wikimedia Deutschland I
 would like to thank Pavel for his very good work and for both the
 professionalism and passion with which he has shaped the development of
 Wikimedia Deutschland.

  How to compose a successful critical commentary:
 
 
 1. You should attempt to re-express your target’s position so clearly,
 vividly, and fairly that your target says, “Thanks, I wish I’d thought
  of
 putting it that way.
 2. You should list any points of agreement (especially if they are not
 matters of general or widespread agreement).
 3. You should mention anything you have learned from your target.
 4. Only then are you permitted to say so much as a word of rebuttal or
 criticism.
 
 
  If someone here read it, please, share your impressions. I'm tempted to
 do
  it.

[Wikimedia-l] Wiki Loves Earth - Brasil - Data/statistics tool

2014-05-13 Thread Rodrigo Padula
Hello guys,

Since that is our first participation in an international photo contest, we
discussed locally about ways to have more information about what is working
well, the results and the real impact on commons of all our efforts around
Wiki Loves Earth here in Brasil.

So, the Brazilian User Group studied and specified a tool, developed by
Danilo (Danilo.mac on pt.wiki and member of the user group as well) to read
database information and generate a complete report about the Wiki Loves
Earth, including all participating countries listed on commons.

The tool is hosted on the server wmflabs.org under the URL
http://tools.wmflabs.org/ptwikis/WLE

Through this tool you can have a general idea of what is going on: number
of photos uploaded, photos used on wikis, number of uploaders(with complete
list and registration date by country) and the percentage of many
information, including uploaders registered in May 2014 during the contest.

I guess that tool can help each country to define metrics to evaluate local
efforts/results and can be useful for other local contests as well.

That's our first time organizing this kind of project and we are learning a
lot, until now we received more than 1.000 photos with 94% of uploaders
registered in May 2014(200 new users for the Wikimedia Commons in 13 days).

Now we are planning a bot to provide guidance and keep in touch with that
new users after the contest ends.

Best regards!

 Dear fellow community members,

 On behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees I am delighted to
 announce that the new Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation will
 be Lila Tretikov. Lila is a widely respected Bay Area technology leader,
 most recently with SugarCRM.

 As many of you know, about a year ago Sue Gardner announced she planned to
 step down as our ED. As we launched the search for her successor, we spent
 some time working through the most critical requirements for the role. We
 decided the new ED should be someone with a product/engineering background,
 ideally in an open-source or other online community context. We wanted
 someone experienced with organisations that were growing, who'd managed
 staff and budgets comparable to ours, and who had experience creating
 continuous delivery of technology improvements in an agile context. We
 wanted a person who is oriented towards collaboration, transparency and
 openness, with some experience with complex stakeholder environments, and
 with an international orientation. We knew we needed someone with courage
 and strong personal integrity, who wouldn't be intimidated by attempts to
 censor the projects.

 Lila is precisely what we set out to find.

 Lila was born in the Soviet Union and moved to the United States alone, as
 a teenager. She's been working for technology companies, primarily in open
 source, in the Bay Area for the past 15 years. In 1999 she started her
 career at Sun Microsystems. Shortly afterwards she founded GrokDigital, a
 technology and design company. She spent three years as senior director of
 development at Telespree, a company that provides cloud-based wireless data
 services for mobile carriers. For the past eight years, she was at
 SugarCRM, where she held positions of increasing responsibility as the
 organization grew, including being in charge of internal IT, marketing,
 customer support and professional services, engineering, and product
 development. She has a stellar reputation as a leader who is highly
 skilled, collaborative, open, passionate and curious.

 We think Lila will be a terrific fit for the ED role. The Transition Team
 (Phoebe, Alice, Kat, Sue, Erik, Geoff, Gayle and I) voted unanimously to
 recommend her to the Board, and the Board voted unanimously to accept the
 recommendation. She strikes all of us as smart, brave and unpretentious,
 and we believe she has the skills the WMF needs.

 Lila is going to spend the next few weeks in learning-and-listening mode,
 and will take over the ED position from Sue at the end of the month. Her
 first priority will be to immerse herself in deepening her understanding of
 the Wikimedia projects.

 I want to close this announcement by saying a heartfelt and deeply
 appreciative thanks to Sue, who has been the Executive Director of the
 Wikimedia Foundation for the past seven years. When the Board and I hired
 Sue in 2007, we were just a chaotic little non-profit in small-town
 Florida, with a tiny staff and not much money. Over the past seven years,
 Sue's leadership has built the Foundation into an effective, well-funded
 and well-managed organisation, with integrity and a clear sense of purpose,
 and her steady and committed presence throughout the search process was
 integral in helping us come to this excellent result. We will be forever
 grateful for her leadership and vision, and I hope we can continue to rely
 on her support in the months and years ahead.

 In June Sue will move into a new role as a special advisor to me and Lila.
 She'll also take a well-earned holiday, and maybe even a bit of a
 wiki-break, before beginning to think about what she's going to do next.
 Many of us will get a chance to see her in London, at Wikimania, in August.

 The Wikimedia Foundation is delighted to have reached such a successful
 outcome to the search. My thanks to Lisa Grossman of m/Oppenheim for
 helping us with it, and I ask you to please join me in extending a warm
 welcome to Lila Tretikov, our new ED.

 Dear Wikimedians,

 On the recommendation of the Wikimania 2015 selection Jury Committee, we
 have accepted the proposal from Mexico DF to host. The proposal will be
 further vetted by the WMF staff in the coming month, after which time we
 hope to confirm the award. Please join us in congratulating Wikimedia
 Mexico!

 We would also like to thank the teams from Cape Town and Monastir as well
 for all their effort in putting together excellent proposals for our
 consideration. As a volunteer-led movement, it is hugely encouraging to
 have so many who want to support Wikimania. The bidding process requires a
 substantial time investment, and we are most grateful for every team’s hard
 work.

 For those of you who are considering hosting in future years, we expect to
 issue the Request for Proposals  for 2016 by September this year.

 Sincerely,

 Ellie Young, WMF Conference Coordinator
 On behalf of the Wikimania Steering Committee
