The Wikinewsie Group
News[edit<http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=The_Wikinewsie_Group/Newsletter/1&action=edit&section=1>
]

Since mid-April, supporters of The Wikinewsie Group have been quite active,
doing a number of activities in support of the organization. These include
selecting a provisional board, engaging in research projects, working to
support original reporting, discussing setting up off-line events, and
promoting our efforts and the broader work being done by Wikinews reporters.

   - On May 4, a meeting was held to select the provisional board. It was
   decided that the board would be composed of the following people:
   LauraHale <http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:LauraHale> (Chair), Pi
   zero <http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Pi_zero>, Brian
McNeil<http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Brian_McNeil>
   , 
Bjarki<http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Bjarki&action=edit&redlink=1>
   ,ProtoplasmaKid <http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:ProtoplasmaKid>.
   The total number of people and roles was based on the draft bylaws. 18
   people, a little under half of all people who were listed as supporters,
   attended the meeting. aff-comm has been advised of this, and that we are
   ready to discuss the group's bylaws with them. They have responded back to
   indicate their review will start shortly.
   - Tentative steps are being taken to have a Wikimedia conference in
   Iceland with a Wikinews workshop as a component of it. This would likely be
   in December to coincide with the 10th birthday of Icelandic
Wikipedia<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/is:>.
   Having some discussions about the possibility of having a small Wikinews
   conference somewhere in Europe sometime in the next year.
   - Wikinews:GLAM <http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/en:Wikinews:GLAM> was
   created after writing about previous experiences with GLAM projects on
   English Wikinews<http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/en:Wikinews:GLAM/Case_studies>
and
   content related to GLAMs across all
projects<http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/en:Wikinews:GLAM/Coverage>.
   Hopefully, with groundwork underway, there should be two announcements
   about Wikinews and GLAM projects by the end of June that will build upon
   previous success.
   - It does not look like there is a single presentation about Wikinews at
   Wikimania in Hong Kong has been approved. Given that, plans are to have
   some sort of Wikinews meetup while there independent of the official tracks.
   - Efforts are underway to do a better job at translating articles from
   one language to another, and successfully guide them through any local
   review processes. This is not a one way street of material from English
   Wikinews to other languages: We have successfully had two articles start on
   Spanish Wikinews that were translated to English Wikinews, where they
   passed the local review process and were successfully published. Comments
   on this effort are welcome at The Wikinewsie Group/Project
planning<http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/The_Wikinewsie_Group/Project_planning>
    and User talk:LauraHale:
WORTNET<http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/en:User_talk:LauraHale#WORTNET>
   .
   - Efforts are underway to develop a matrix to understand key policy,
   community and content requirement differences between different Wikinews
   projects. Once complete, this should ease cross Wikinews collaboration by
   having a starting point to discuss content related issues when translating
   for review, and trying to standardize any policies across projects.
   - Four pieces of research have been completed. They include Blocks on
   English 
Wikinews<http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/en:User:LauraHale/Blocks_on_English_Wikinews>
   ,

   , Research:Wikinews Review
Analysis<http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Wikinews_Review_Analysis>
    and English Wikinews and the Gender
Gap<http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/en:User:LauraHale/English_Wikinews_and_the_Gender_Gap>.
   If you are doing any research, formally or informally, about any language
   Wikinews project, please share it with The Wikinewsie Group as it will help
   better inform our decisions.
   - The development of a reviewing tool for English Wikinews continues.
   There are some concerns that the future roll out of Lua may hinder this.
   Once complete, this tool should make it easier for reviewers to leave
   feedback and check articles against all criteria.
   - Migration of the wikinewsie.org server to Iceland should be complete
   by the end of June. Once funding is secure, one of the first upgrades to
   the server will be to create a secure server and a dedicated host in order
   to encourage more investigative reporting and reporting of embargoed news
   stories. The server could also be used for development of bots, and mobile
   reporting tools. The planning is being done to give The Wikinewsie Group
   cloud space to host reporting notes, video and audio to support journalism
   efforts.
   - Icelandic Wikinews <http://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wn/is>
and Malayalam
   Wikinews <http://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wn/ml> are both hosted on
   incubator. The Icelandic Wikimedia mailing list and Indian editors have
   been contacted to encourage local editors to get the projects viable to
   move to the main space.
   - On social media, a few The Wikinewsie Group supporters are answering
   questions about Wikinews on quora<http://www.quora.com/search?q=Wikinews>.
   This is part of an effort to expand awareness about the Wikinews in general.
   - Follow @wikinewsie, The Wikinewsie
Group<https://twitter.com/wikinewsie> on
   Twitter. Please tweet us any original reporting you are aware of on any
   project so we can tweet about it.
