Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Affiliates] Changes to current chapter and thematic organisation criteria

2016-08-22 Thread Salvador A
I want to close the chapter of this discussion related to
quantitative-qualitative criteria in order to call your attention to some
consequences of this new criteria for existing affiliates. I want to be
clear on this in order to avoid future missunderstandings.

Romaine said that it's desirable to have already recognized affiliates to
meet this criteria. Both AffCom and BoT want this, and it's would be unfair
to require this criteria only for groups that want to get the ThOrg and
Chapter status and at the same time to have a lesser average of work among
those that already are recognized as such. Consequently, *every ThOrg and
Chapter must comply with this criteria in order to get and keep affiliate
status. *The idea is keeping the affiliates moving forward and to avoid to
get them dormant.

This criteria will be checked out during the annual review that WMF staff
makes of Chapters and ThOrgs status (yes, the same that make you eligible
to go to WMCON in Berlin) in case an affiliate doesn't meet the
requirementes it will be reported to AffCom who will decide in every case
if a recomendation to Board of Trustees is needed.

---
*Possible questions:*

*Q1: My chapter/ThOrg exists since many years ago, could I loose my
recognition as chapter?*

*A1:* Yes, if you don't meet the criteria and you don't repair the
situation during some time after AffCom request, you can loose it.

*Q2: How can I do to avoid this?*

*A2:* Work hard, make activities, set goals and report. Ask for AffCom, WMF
or other affiliates help if is needed.

*Q3: But there are some chapters that have already many years without
activity and nothing had happened so far.*

*A3:* AffCom is already working on it.

---
If you have any other questions on that doesn't hesitate in doing it, I'm
sure Carlos will be happy of answer them :P

What a delight!

For those who love iterations, the sonneto of Wikipedia itself:


*Wikipedia*

In many cases this is very far

are written in a form that deviates

from an assumption that conceptions are

been sold for use in the United States.

A "flagged revisions" system can prevent

is: If this person were alive today

is :hover, which identifies content

especially variation in delay.

The inspiration for the movie came

allowing him or her to verify

an album or an artist, or the name

of taxi drivers who can qualify.

The problem is that DES require a lot

depending on the risk of getting caught.

[Wikimedia-l] Princess of Asturias Awards pics

2015-11-06 Thread Salvador A
Hi community.

I don't know if somebody already shared this. I remember some of you asked
for photographs of the last Princess of Asturias Awards ceremony. You can
find some in the next category in Commons:

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Princess_of_Asturias_Awards_2015_ceremony

I want to congratulate Wikimedia Spain for the magnificent idea of
introducing a volunteer as oficial photographer in the ceremony authorized
by the Princess of Asturias Foundation, and obviously to the photographer
Ruben Ortega. There are some pictures from other volunteers that also
atendeed to the ceremony, thanks to them too.

AFAIK there is still some pendants photographs to be uploaded, but we have
already those to use in Wikipedia, media and posts.

Congratulations to all again!

 Dear members of the international Wikimedia Community,


 I would like to announce that Wikimedia Portugal’s General Assembly has
 elected a Board, as well as other statutory positions.


 The Board is now comprised of:

 João Vasconcelos – President

 André Barbosa – Vice President

 Cristina Couto Soares – Secretary



 The official posts are compliant with legal requirements of Wikimedia
 Portugal, as a legal entity. However, according to an internal regulation
 change, the activity of Wikimedia Portugal will be coordinated without a
 hierarchical structure, with neither fixed positions nor formal
 responsibilities.

 Members are able to form temporary working groups for specific projects
 and to collaborate in areas such as: Coordination, Outreach,
 Communications, Computing activities, Treasury, Fund-raising and other
 actions.

 Main coordination of activities will be made through an online
 collaborative platform, which enables communication between members, such
 as organizing tasks.  I’ll oversee these activities as executive
 coordinator.

 This platform should be publicly accessible for the purposes of
 transparency, visibility of activities, and to encourage new members to
 participate in the Chapter activities.

 Regards,
 Joao

[Wikimedia-l] Cebuano and Waray-waray Wikipedias among Top 10

2015-07-05 Thread Salvador A
Hi!

I just I noticed that Cebuano and Waray-waray Wikipedia are inside the list
of the 10 Wikipedias with more articles.[1] It seems it happened during
this weekend. Maybe in the case of Waray Wikipedia happened a little
before. Somebody knows when did it was exactly? Did I miss a thread
announcing this?

Waray-waray is now the 6th place and Cebuano has surpassed it.wiki and
es.wiki and gained the place number 8, mainly due to Lsjbot work.[2]
Definitely a milestone in Wikipedia and bots history.

 law resolutions. The tribunal that solved this was the Tribunal Federal de
 Justicia Fiscal y Administrativa. This court is not the supreme court of
 Mexico but is the most important tribunal after that one in all the matter
 related to tax and administrative law and its precedents are binding for
 all mexican administrative authorities and al the judges on administrative
 and fiscal law.

 The case law is the number VII-J-SS-191 and you can read it in the next
 link:

 (only in Spanish)

 http://sctj.tfjfa.gob.mx/SCJI/assembly/detalleTesis?idTesis=41716

 The title is at the same time a brief of the content of the precedent, and
 it can be translated in this way:

 *Wikipedia.- The information that is obtained from this website can help
 to elucidate some controversial matter, thence the courtrooms of this
 tribunal may use it when ruling.*

 Inside the text the court makes a fair clarication: *It must not be the
 only source of knowledge in which the resolutions are based on [...] the
 judges must care about gathering diversity of sources of information such
 as specialized books, encyclopedia, including the electronic ones, [...]
 and others*.

 Maybe is just a curiosity, but for me is ilustrative of the good
 reputation that our work is getting even in some closed circles as the law
 practice. At least in Mexico is not common to see a court quoting
 Wikipedia, but maybe this first precedent might change the things.

 Do you know other similar case laws?

 Regards!

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Invitation to WMF November 2014 Metrics Activities Meeting: Thursday, December 4, 19:00 UTC

2014-12-04 Thread Salvador A
Hi Asaf!

I was reading the presentation on metrics and the point about Mexico's
decreasing of views on Wikipedia called my attention.

From your answer to Scott I read that those are only statistics from
enwiki, do you know if the same happened in eswiki or, conversely, eswiki
grow the number of views? In the last case I could assume that we are
converting English readers into Spanish readers and it might be taken as
a normal migration. Although in the first case I would be worried because
we are loosing those readers definitely and it would be needed adjust some
strategies in our country.

Sorry if I'm doing a simplist reading of the metrics.

Regards!

  Thanks everyone for a fantastic metrics meeting.
 
  I had two questions which I raised on IRC which didn't get a chance to
  be addressed.  Briefly:
 
  1) Is the rise in global south page views specifically to *enwiki*, or
  is it to local wikis?
 

 Not actually an either/or.  The answer seems to me to be yes, i.e. all
 wikis -- that is, all projects, all languages.


  It seems that our thinking about redirecting to localized content and
  the rise of mobile in the global south should be informed by these
  analytics.  Are folks coming to enwiki because that's where the
  content and editors are?


 Some definitely do.  Another major factor, mentioned today, is that in some
 countries, mobile devices just don't come with good local languages
 support, and people are putting up with that and using what the device does
 give them, which are generally the major, colonial languages.


  If so we might be doing readers a disservice
  by redirecting them to a local wiki without the content they are
  seeking.  (Perhaps the Content Translation tool can help.)  If our
  userbase in the global south is coming from mobile, than it is
  important to provide localized editing tools for mobile; less so if
  they are primarily English-speaking and can take advantage of the
  desktop editors of enwiki.


 Remember that while global south is a shorthand label we use for
 convenience to group together a large number of countries, it's often quite
 misleading to generalize about it, *particularly* around language
 questions.

 In Anglophone Africa, for example, most people are used to looking for
 information online in English and not in indigenous languages.  But in
 Brazil, people consume information in Portuguese, but many (16%) also refer
 to the English Wikipedia (and intriguingly, 1 in 3 *edits* from Brazil is
 to ENWP!), presumably for its broader coverage or higher average quality.
 In Ukraine, 70% read the Russian Wikipedia and only 17% read the Ukrainian
 Wikipedia; interviews tell me this is largely due to device defaults,
 beyond the obvious different in size and average quality.

 This page reveals some of those breakdowns:

 http://stats.wikimedia.org/wikimedia/squids/SquidReportPageViewsPerCountryBreakdown.htm


  Will investment in the Content Translation
  tool affect the balance between enwiki and local wiki pageviews going
  forward?
 

 That would be one long-term effect to watch for, I think!

 Thanks for digging up further info!

A.

  Hello everybody,
 
  It's with great pleasure that I announce Giuliana Mancini as the new
  Executive Director of Wikimedia Italia.
 
  It took us over 6 months to select her within a pool of 450 candidates:
 it
  has been an incredibly hard work, and tough decisions were made.
  I'd like to acknowledge that one of the most active members of the
  selective committee was Alessio Guidetti aka Cotton, who recendly passed:
  it saddens us to know that he won't have the chance to see her working
 with
  us.
 
  But this is a moment of joy, because the Wikimedia family just got a new
  member.
  Giuliana will help us become a more mature and structured association:
 her
  deep experience and competence will be used to for make Wikimedia Italia
  scale and increase its impact in the world of free and open knowledge.
 
  Before being appointed Executive Director at Wikimedia Italia, in the
 last
  12 years, she has covered several roles of increasing commitment in the
  field of arts and culture. She spent 9 years in a grant making foundation
  where she supervised the activities of a cello academy and the concerts
 of
  an ensemble of classical musicians, assisting the board in setting
  strategies and coordinating the comprehensive management.
  She participated in the board of a company in the field of Fine Arts
 with a
  mandate for promotion of a multimedia exhibition, creating strategic
  relationship with Italian and foreigner museums.
  She drafted several feasibility studies and business plans for theatres
 and
  other cultural institutions as well as for start up companies.
  She can speak English fluently and has a good understanding of Spanish
 and
  French, and she graduated in Economics and in Law (her second degree was
  completed while working).
 
  She was officially introduced to the Wikimedia Italia assembly this
  Saturday, and this is her second week of work.
 
  Please welcome her in our incredible Wikimedia movement.
 
  Best regards,
 
  Andrea Zanni

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Insights of the Chapters Dialogue are online!

2014-08-01 Thread Salvador A
 disagreement about
 the new fundraising and grantmaking processes.

 The gap in leadership: Who should take the leadership role and what
 should leadership in the Wikimedia movement look like? Adopting the
 narrowed focus, the WMF clearly states that it does not see the
 development of movement entities as their duty. Chapters on the other
 hand expect the WMF to take a leading role in Chapters’ development,
 while the WMF expects Chapters to be more proactive.

 None of these conflicts can be viewed in isolation, and no solution
 can be developed without a thorough understanding and frank
 conversations about the causes in the first place. We therefore
 consider that it would be highly irresponsible to suggest solutions to
 any of the described issues. Instead, we have distilled tough
 questions from the insights that need to be addressed urgently and
 answered in an open and comprehensive manner:

 1. What do we as a movement want to achieve? Do we run a website or
 foster free knowledge? Why are we doing the things we do, and what
 for?
 2. How do we define impact when exploring new territory? And how do we
 measure success?
 3. What is the role of the Wikimedia Foundation?
 4. How do we want to communicate with each other? How can we build the
 necessary empathy and learn from each other? How can we overcome the
 old narrative and perceptions?
 5. Where does the money come from and where should it go? Should money
 be the limiting factor when striving for Free Knowledge?
 6. What movement framework is best suited to fulfil the Wikimedia mission?

 The way things are at present inhibits the movement from striving
 effectively for Free Knowledge. Instead of using its full potential to
 further its mission, it revolves around itself. The common mission is
 at serious risk if the movement does not tackle the causes of its
 problems.

 These tough questions can only be approached in a structured and
 professional way, with dedication and commitment. There is no point in
 tinkering with the symptoms and finding single-problem solutions.

 The Chapters Dialogue concludes with the recommendation to build upon
 the insights and to initiate a sequel: the design of a framework for
 the Wikimedia movement in which it can work strongly and effectively
 towards its mission in a professional way, yet stay true to its
 grassroots and maintain its diversity.

[Wikimedia-l] [Announce] WMMX's assembly and new Board

2014-03-24 Thread Salvador A
Hi folks,

Sorry for crossposting.

In past days Wikimedia Mexico had its first general assembly of members. In
that assembly we elected a new board for our non-profit association,
therefore we want to introduce you the new authorities. In advance, I tell
you that Ivan Martínez is WMMX president newly but now with a definitive
appointment.

Please, make the changes that you consider pertinent in Meta pages, mailing
lists and your personal directories.


*WMMX's first Annual General Assembly of Members*

As it is written in our bylaws we must hold an annual members general
assembly. Since our legal founding our board was and temporary one. On
March 1, 2014 we celebrate our first assembly where our president Iván
Martínez gave to members an inform of activities, we receive new members,
we vote the amount of the membership fee and we elect new board.

We have an excerpt of the act of that assembly which is in spanish:

https://mx.wikimedia.org/wiki/Primera_asamblea_general_ordinaria


*New Board*

As results of that assembly we have a new board which is definitive and
will serve two years, that is, till March 2016. You probably know some of
them and we hope you will know the rest of them soon. The appointment of
some of us just changed. So, this is the structure of our new definitive
board:

you the monthly report of our chapter corresponding to January 2014.

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_chapters/Reports/Wikimedia_Mexico/January_2014

share also our reports of October, November and December of 2013:

https://mx.wikimedia.org/wiki/Informes/Noviembre_2013/en

from January 2014 on you will find them also on Meta. I have included the
index of our reports in Wikimedia_Chapters/Reports

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_chapters/Reports

 participated at the San Martin Cultural Center, the main venue of the
 conference.

 On Friday August 23, the most anticipated events of the summit took place:
 the presentation of Lawrence Lessig, who drew attention to the copyright
 license limitations currently taking place in creative processes. Lessig
 also raised questions and key issues of the debate on copyright and
 outreach, and proposed key aspects to be considered in proposals for
 copyright reform. A summary of this presentation is available on our
 website (in Spanish at

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Legal victory for Wikipedia in Italy

2013-06-27 Thread Salvador A
It's pretty remarkable that Italian Court is keeping in mind the real
nature of Wikipedia as a sui generis collaborative project and not like a
web site in a traditional sense. This new legal definition might influence
other courts or laws. The most of law traditions in Latin America follow
closely the Italian criteria.

If possible, I would like a copy of the final resolution. Will you publish
it on Commons or WMIT web page?

Congratulations WMIT!


2013/6/26 Ilario Valdelli valde...@gmail.com

 The blog has been already posted in the Italian mailing list and I would
 say that this is an excellent result.

 The justice in Italy is really slow in general, but in this case the
 timeline has been short and the result of the court of justice really good
 for the future.

 The definition that the prosecutor is able to change the definition in
 Wikipedia and for this reason there is no sense to accuse Wikipedia or WMF,
 it's a good way to give an indication for the future.

 Thank you

   I am happy to inform you that the Affiliations Committee has

   Please join me in welcoming this new group into the fold of
   Wikimedia
   entities, and let's celebrate their success and hard work as
Wikipedia
   turns eleven in Nepal!
  
   == Wikimedians of Nepal ==
  
   Wikimedians of Nepal 
   http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Nepal

  is a
   group of enthusiastic Nepali Wikimedians working towards
  developing
and
   promoting Wikimedia projects in Nepal. They've been actively
   working
to
   help expand the community, launch projects in more languages of
   Nepal
 and
   promote and support the existing ones.
  
   The group is working towards chapterhood, and have a good
 chance
  of
   attaining that status this year. Granting them user group
   recognition
   allows the movement to express its appreciation for their hard
  work
 even
   while they are working on the bureaucratic aspects of meeting
 the
   requirements of chapterhood. The timing is fortuitous  in that
  the
 group
  is
   going to mark the 11th anniversary of Wikipedia in a Nepali
   language
 on 3
   June, next Monday.
  
   Ganesh, the group's interim president has been invited to this
   year's
  Milan
   conference, where he gave a comprehensive overview of the
 group's
  history,
   its projects (including a successful 'wikiwomen programme) and
  its
   ambitions. The slides are at:

   is
   valid until 28 May 2014, or until they are recognized as a
  chapter.
  
  
   == Wikimedia User Groups ==
  
   Wikimedia User Groups are one of the three new types of
   affiliations
   created last year to empower volunteers wanting to conduct
  offline
work
  and
   provide them recognition from the Wikimedia movement.
  
   User group status is meant to be an easy form of affiliation,
  where
the
   main requirements are an agreed goal, plans for offline work,
 at
least
   three people participating and a public wiki page with all the
relevant
   information).
  
   Under the movement roles
   recommendations
  

  
 http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_affiliation_models/User_Groups
   , user groups are to be recognized in a quick and easy process
directly
  by
   the Affiliations Committee, for a fixed, renewable time-period
  and
they
  are
   to enjoy limited trademark use and simplified access to grants.

 thanks, Lucien.
 I created a draft and translated it here:

 Anyone reading this should please feel free to edit the English translation
 to make it better. I'll publish in 1-2 hours, depending on whether anyone
 else makes edits.

 thanks!

   If you do a blog post to announce it, please let me know and I'll
  translate
   to English. Or if you can give a rough English translation, I can clean
  it
   up. Would be happy to publish on the Wikimedia Blog.

Congratulations to all of us who have worked all these years to make

possible :D
The change in the count is very innapropiate (someone said on our

 the
counting and waking up the other day), but it doesn't take the credit
  of
all the work that has been done.
   
By the way, can someone update our logo for the celebrations?
According to this poll [1], the logo should be

Wikipedia has surpassed the million of articles.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Mexican government signs ACTA

2012-07-13 Thread Salvador A
In fact, it is not a copyright issue. Wimedia and Wikipedia is not against
copyright.

It is a issue about legal control. The current redaction of ACTA would bind
to a signing country to create jurisdictional tools for closing and
censoring pages only with presumption of copyright violation. For
instance, every Wikipedia's article with a copypaste template could be
closed by a judge.

 What exact issues is ACTA meant to cause us. Remember stronger
 copyright controls are in many ways in Wikipedia's interest. It kills
 off any potential competition.
