Hello Yaroslav, Yes, the Foundation's Community Engagement department, who are the most familiar with Wikimedia communities, reviewed the applications thoroughly. If you have concerns about a specific person, which obviously can't be discussed on a public list, I happy to discuss them with you

Congratulations to everyone. I notice that some of these users do not have their WMF accounts connected to their user accounts. Would it be a problem to ask for user and work accounts to reference each other? Thanks, On Fri, Mar 10, 2017 at 10:55 AM, Guillaume Paumier

Thanks Guillaume for your answer. I provided enough info for the Community Engagement to double-check if they want to, and I have no personal interest in the outcome, so I am happy to leave it as it is now. Cheers Yaroslav On Fri, Mar 10, 2017 at 4:55 PM, Guillaume Paumier

Looking at the talk page briefly, I'm seeing few objections to the close and it appears that no one has reverted it, so it's likely to stick. I remain skeptical of the process (not to say that it's all bad; Matt certainly did a lot of outreach on mailing lists), but I wouldn't suggest using this

Hi all! It’s the 10th update! According to English Wikipedia, the traditional gift for a 10th anniversary is tin and aluminum.[1] So, here is a photo of some art taken during Wiki Loves Art Netherlands that features a Ta'zīya[2] made from bamboo and aluminum foil:

Thanks Katherine. It's nice to see how this process is coming along. The weekly updates are helpful. If I may highlight a point: I very much like Victor's video. I think it has good perspective(s) on this ambitious project. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:2030.wikimedia.org.webm. Pine

I think it depends how it's being used. If the nonfree content is presented as an integral part of the interface, such as inline with the article, that's a problem. On the other hand, if the interface just allows the separate Apple Maps to be pulled up, that's a bit different. We frequently link

Hello everyone, I'm not one who usually writes on these lists, but since it seems like a good way to get others opinions (and ince I've already formed my own), I thought it was a good way to see what others had to say and think. The mobile team for the iOS app (who are all awesome!) has

That link does not for me Jonatan? But yes if the app is pulling from Apple and giving our users data to Apple that would not be allowed by the privacy policy. Or at least that is my understanding. James On Fri, Mar 10, 2017 at 9:04 PM, Jonatan Svensson Glad < gladjona...@outlook.com> wrote: >

Why are we not using OSM? I know Yuri created tiles within the WMF system of services and those are what Wikivoyage uses. Wikivoyage was once using no open maps that were not hosted locally which was a breach of our privacy policy. Thankfully Yuri created the solution mentioned once the issue was

Hoi, What I do not understand is why? We have had maps and nearby functionality for a very long time 2014 based on Wikidata [1]. It has the benefit of being of use in any of our languages much more than what Apple has to offer. This was developed at the Hackathon in Vienna. OSM maps have as a
