[Wikimedia-l] Movement Strategy Update: Draft outline of Transition events

2020-08-13 Thread Rupika Sharma
Hello everyone,

Hope everyone is safe and sound in the light of the ongoing Pandemic. I
would like to share an update regarding the progress of the Movement
Strategy and the design of the transition events.

The Transition Design Group [1] has been meeting over the past month to
discuss the design of the virtual events that will aim to facilitate
the inclusive
Transition process for the movement to start implementing the Movement
Strategy recommendations [2]. The Design Group discussions have been largely
centred around people and their ease of participation, processes for the
Transition events, and the legitimacy of the process, needed resources, and
communications [3]. Transition will be a turning point for our movement to
create a 18-month collaborative implementation work plan that will empower
our community and affiliates.

The virtual Transition events are being planned from the month of September
to December, 2020. We invite your feedback on the draft outline for the
transition events to ensure the events can be as inclusive, participative,
and engaging as possible [4]. The draft outline offers both light and
detailed information regarding the events. The Transition events aim to be
easy to join only once or for multiple events. They are for everyone,
whether a newcomer or a seasoned strategy enthusiast. They are being
designed for diverse participation across time zones and regions in order
to create a movement-wide implementation plan. The review period for the
draft outline is till August 20. After receiving your feedback, the Design
Group will finalize the plan and the Wikimedia Foundation will ensure the
delivery of the events according to the design.

Please comment on the Meta talk page [4] and feel free to use the questions
below as an orientation:

   1. How can the plan be improved? In your opinion, what are some barriers
to entry that must be lowered so everyone can take part in Transition?
   2. How can we make sure that you and your community have what you need
to participate in the Transition events?
   3. If you have attended other virtual events, what has your experience
been like and what lessons can be applied in this case?

You are also encouraged to share your individual feedback directly via
email strategy2...@wikimedia.org for any suggestions or ideas.

On behalf of the Design Team,
Rupika

[Wikimedia-l] Results from Punjabi Wikisource Proofreading Contest

2019-02-01 Thread Rupika Sharma
Hello Everyone,

It is with great pride I would like to share great news with the community.
We did Proofreading contest in Punjabi Wikisource from 21 December 2018 -
31 January 2019 and we have record breaking results.

Starting from 300 proofread pages per month with only about 4-5 editors,
and almost 0 editors with 50+ editors in October, we only had 1269 pages
proofread since past 2 years.

After the contest, we now have community of 24 editors with 50+ edits and
35 participants that joined us via outreach programs and workshops . We
were able to get 5100+ pages proofread in 40 days, making us the fastest
and the most active Wikisource community in India. And as per the latest
stats, we are also the fastest growing Wikisource community globally in
terms of growth and third most active community in terms of pages proofread
after 40 days of the contest. We will continue to validate the proofread
pages from the contest in the next couple months to maintain quality and
reliability.

We hope we can continue to grow and advance the mission of free knowledge
from Punjabi Community.

Hello Nattes a' chat and Camilia,

That sounds wonderful! We are encouraging organizers to set up a page on
Commons with country code and I think what you suggested sounds fantastic.

And meta page for articles is a great idea. Let me know if any help is
needed from international team.

Best Regards,

Hello everyone,

There is Wiki Loves Love competition to be organized on Wikimedia Commons

your assistance in translating a tiny line in your respective native

WIKI LOVES LOVE

Feel free to add it here or at this Google sheet or in wikidata itself. The
links for them are as below:
