Dear Program Leaders and Evaluators,

Today, we launch our second round of voluntary reporting. We invite all
program leaders and evaluators to participate in, the most epic data
collection and analysis of Wikimedia programs we've done so far as a
movement.

As we did in the Fall of 2013, once again we cordially request for you to
share the data you have been collecting to evaluate your programs
(i.e., Edit-a-thons,
Editing Workshops, On-wiki Writing Contests, Photo Events, etc.). To best
prepare, review the reporting items *[1]* and start gathering that data you
have filed away about your programs since September 1, 2013! You can ask
questions directly on the reporting form preview or on our portal talk page
[2]. When you are ready to begin, you will find the reporting collector at:

Last year, we were honored to have so many program leaders willing to
report whatever data they could. Many have benefitted from those first
reports *[3]*. We know everyone has been tracking and collecting more than
ever before and we are excited for this second round. We will be looking
for your reports and reaching out to offer support in reporting; if you are
planning to report, let us know so that we can help best. Have you been
tracking these data in a different way that you would like to share with
us, or have you already reported these data elsewhere?  No problem, we are
happy to have you share in another format. Message e...@wikimedia.org and
we can work out the easiest way to include your data!

We are expanding the number of programs covered in the reporting this year,
and extend the reporting window longer for some new programs, GLAM, and
Wiki Loves Monuments. See the schedule below for timelines for reporting for
each program type.

Remember, reporting is voluntary but the more people do it, the better
representation of programs we can make. This voluntary reporting allows us
to come together and generate a bird’s eye view of programs *[4]*. We want
to understand the impact of programs across different contexts, to examine
both more broadly, and more deeply, what works best to meet our shared
goals for Wikimedia and to, together, grow the awesome *[5]* in Wikimedia
programs!

On behalf of the Program Evaluation and Design team, thank you for your
time and support in this initiative.
