Cyprus report: WikiGap editathon inside the UN Buffer Zone[edit]

By Marios Magioladitis
Marios Magioladitis during #WikiGap in Cyprus

Over 40 Swedish embassies took an initiative called #WikiGap during which people around the world gathered on International Women's Day to add more content to Wikipedia about women profiles, experts and role models in various fields.

The Swedish Embassy of Cyprus contacted Marios Magioladitis, a member of Wikimedia Community User Group of Greece, to organise an editathon inside the United Nations Buffer Zone in Cyprus, the Green line, demilitarized zone, patrolled by the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus.

The organizers dedicated this year's International Women's Day, in Wikipedia, articles of distinguished Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot women, who have an important contribution to peace and politics. The goal was to publish 20-30 new or translated articles in Greek and Turkish. The event also aimed to show participants how easy it is to contribute to Wikipedia and thus encourage the continued involvement of women after that day.

The event had the support of Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies (MIGS) and the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus.

Most of the attendees to the event had their laptops with them, as the organizers had suggested and started creating articles.

The participants were members of women's and non-governmental organizations from both communities, including Salpy Eskidjian Weiderud, Executive Coordinator of The Religious Track of the Cyprus Peace Process of the Swedish Embassy in Nicosia. There were participants from both sides of the island.

Unfortunatelly, creating content in Turkish Wikipedia was not possible during the event since Wikipedia has been blocked in Turkey for more than a year now.

Before the editathon Marios Magioladitis gave a talk titled "Gender online and on Wikipedia" where he focused on the participation of women online and in Wikipedia in particular.

The event had media coverage.

Czech Report: Popular topics make a good Wikipedia article-writing contest - results from a contest on Czech heritage[edit]

By Aktron
Contest banner.

The Describe a Monument Contest helped create new articles in Czech Wikipedia, re-use pictures from Wiki Loves Monuments and focus more on Czech National Heritage.

From 15th January to 15th February 2018 an unusual editing contest took place on Czech Wikipedia: Describe a Monument! The concept was simple: Write an article about a monument in the Czech Republic which does not have an article on Czech Wikipedia (cs.wikipedia.org) yet. Based on your contributions you can earn points and then actual prizes. It is like Wiki Loves Monuments, only with articles instead of photos. More than 150 articles were created, 47 people participated in the contest and 175 000 words were added in total. The longest article about a gymnasium in Sokolov was 17.5 kb long. New articles described included 34 churches, 24 chateaus/mansions, 16 villas, 14 forts and lots of other interesting stuff from all around the Czech Republic. The contest was supported by Czech National Heritage Institute and Pro Památky magazine. Participants are looking forward to the next year of the contest that might take place in winter 2019.

Estonia report: GLAM & databases, Rightsstatements.org declarations in Estonian and new version of Ajapaik app[edit]

By Reosarevok & Vahur Puik (Original published in April 2018 This Month in GLAM newsletter)

Tartu Art Museum + Wikidata[edit]

"In the museum" (1994). Linocut by Peeter Allik. One of the most recent images from Tartu Art Museum, that has been added to Wikimedia Commons.

A collaboration project is taking place between Wikimedia Eesti and the Tartu Art Museum, as the first concerted effort in Estonia of the WikiProject sum of all paintings. The first stage of this project has now been completed: to use a bot to add information about all the paintings and watercolor paintings in the museum collection to Wikidata (the data itself was extracted from the Estonian museum database MuIS). The collaboration will continue in the next months with the upload of high quality images of as many of the out of copyright artworks in the collection as possible to Wikimedia Commons (+ with the works, where it is possible to get the permission from the artist), to make them available to the public in general and to Wikipedia article writers in particular.

The technical work (see code on Github) carried out for this project should also make further collaborations easier, since most if not all of the Estonian museums have their collection data in the MuIS database.

Biographical Database of Estonian Photographers[edit]

In 2017 the previous custom made platform for the Biographical Database of Estonian Photographers was abandoned as it had become technically obsolete and the data was migrated to Scandinavian platform KulturNav. More than a year ago basic entries on Wikidata had been created (see GLAMwiki Newsletter from January 2017) with links to old database that needed to be updated with KulturNav IDs. The matching was performed with Mix'n'match, with the goal of adding more biographical information about the photographers in the future. Having a good overview of (early) Estonian photographers in Wikidata is interesting in itself, and will no doubt prove useful in order to discover more photographs that are in the public domain and can thus be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons to illustrate Wikipedia articles.

Estonian translation of Rightsstatements.org declarations in public review[edit]

On March 27 the 4 week public review of the Estonian translation of Rightsstatements.org declarations describing the copyright status of digitized cultural heritage items was announced. Estonian is only the second language after German Rightsstatements declarations have been translated into, several other translations are on their way. Currently the copyright statuses of the cultural heritage items are very poorly recorded and marked in the Estonian public collections and public repositories serving the content, therefore it is also hard to identify out of copyright content that could be added to Wikimedia Commons. A lot of work has to be done to raise awareness about the intellectual property rights related to cultural heritage items also among the staff of GLAMs as often the ownership of the physical items is confused with the ownership of IP. Rightsstatements declarations is one the tools to also educate about the topic. Also several public online repositories for cultural heritage are undergoing development so we hope that Rightsstatements will also be implemented rather sooner than later...

New version of Ajapaik rephotography app[edit]

Schoolchildren testing Ajapaik rephotography app in Helsinki on March 1st. The old photo is displayed semi-transparently on top of the camera stream to make it more convenient to align historic view with current scenery.

Ajapaik – a crowdsourcing platform for geotagging and rephotographing old images – published its new version of android app for rephotography in the beginning of March. Ajapaik has mostly Estonian content (more than 125 000 historical images, mostly photographs, but also paintings, graphic art and even film stills) retrieved from the APIs of public cultural heritage repositories.

The translation of the app was moved to Translatewiki and the next plans are to integrate the app with other repositories, including Wikimedia Commons and to pilot test it with the Wiki Loves Monuments rephotography track in collaboration with Wikimedia Finland (see their newsletter).

Moldova and Romania report: Women, spring, and women[edit]

By Gikü
Happy faces during the March women-oriented edit-a-thon in Bucharest

For Wikimedians of Romania and Moldova, spring means a lot of projects directed towards women on Wikipedia, but also new experiences and lessons learned.

Aligning with the international effort to fight the gender gap on Wikimedia projects, multiple offline and online edit-a-thons were organized in March and April, and more are coming in May. First, the community of Romanian Wikipedians put together a list of almost 1,000 notable Romanian women that lack articles in Romanian. The list was set up by consulting Romanian thematic bibliography, but also by scanning multiple language versions of Wikipedia – particularly using Wikidata – in search for Romanian women about whom somebody over the seven seas had written articles.

The list was published in the sitenotice, and throughout the spring months visitors of Wikipedia are invited to take part in an online contest to write about women, encouraging female participation. In addition to the online contest, 5 offline workshops were scheduled for Bucharest (Romania) and Chișinău (Moldova) throughout spring months. The first such workshop took place in Bucharest in March and gathered around 10 people, with two participants coming all the way from Chișinău. The second and third workshops took place simultaneously in Bucharest and Chișinău in April, although fewer people came; in Chișinău it was a working Saturday, so only one lady showed up — which meant the organizers had to finish the snacks and pizza by themselves!

Chișinău squad during the April edit-a-thon; three of these are organizers – can you spot the sole participant?

Two more such workshops will take place in May, also in both cities. There will be an election day in Chișinău on that day, and we hope that people will flee the political mumbo-jumbo and come to make a lasting contribution on Wikipedia!

There's more to it. Romanian Wikipedia continues to establish and maintain partnerships with universities through different projects. A translation contest is underway in the Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iași, and students of the Western "Babeș-Bolyai" University of Cluj-Napoca are being instructed on Wikipedia principles in order to write articles on the centenary of Romanian reunification with Transylvania and Moldova.

Spring also means preparations for summer. As the amateurs of photography may already be aware, there is a photo contest happening throughout the world in May and June: Wiki Loves Earth. Moldova will enter the contest the third year in a row, after more then 2,000 images of protected areas acquired in the previous years. Lists are ready, articles wait their illustrations, and the prizes have been announced, but this time organizers did the extra-mile and challenged their partners to promote the contest by taking part in a wiki-expedition. Thus, Wiki Loves Earth Moldova's two sponsors – a radio station and an ecological organization – sat in their cars and traveled to the north and south of the country hunting for undiscovered protected areas. More than 30 protected areas have been photographed for the first time, and the images will be uploaded throughout the contest by organizers. The photo contest will be in June, followed by a similarly themed writing contest in July.

With so many projects, the majority of which we the Romanian community do for the first time, we are left to draw the following conclusion: Spring inspires!

PS: And we didn't even mention CEE Spring!

Serbia report: WikiLive 2018: A factory of ideas and positive energy[edit]

By Mickey Mystique
Group photo of the participants of WikiLive 2018 conference in Serbia

Wikipedians from around Serbia and the neighboring countries gathered for the fourth annual local conference in Belgrade to discuss all the important aspects of creating the largest encyclopedia in human history and other wiki projects. During the two days of the conference, more than a hundred participants actively shared knowledge, made suggestions for improving Wikipedia and other wiki projects, but first of all enjoyed meeting their colleagues, as well as a friendly atmosphere that is inevitable when it comes to working together to achieve the same goals.

The fourth WikiLve conference was officially opened on Saturday, April 14, by Filip Maljković, the President of Wikimedia Serbia and a longtime member of the Wikipedian Community. He was thrilled by the presence of new members, but also happy to see many veteran editors. He emphasized the importance of the wiki-meetups as a good way to exchange new ideas and discussions.


Katy Love and Sati Houston greet the participants of WikiLive 2018

Katy Love and Sati Houston of the Wikimedia Foundation greeted the participants in a video message. They congratulated the Serbian wiki community on a significant jubilee - 15 years since the creation of Serbian Wikipedia, as well as 257 million visits it had in 2017, and the fact that over 300 events were organized in order to bring the community together.

Nebojša Ratković, Education Program Manager of Wikimedia Serbia, spoke about Seminar papers on Wikipedia and previous results of high-school and university students. The distinctiveness of these works is evident through the articles themselves, but the problem of literacy and the lack of encyclopedic style of writing is still a problem, which led to the deletion of some articles.

Attendees of the WikiLive 2018 conference in Serbia

One of the most important things in 2017 was certainly the strategy of the Wikimedia Movement, in parallel with the strategy of Wikimedia Foundation. Ivana Madžarević and Filip Maljković presented the three main focuses of Wikimedia Serbia for the next three years - Educational program, Free content and Community support.


The way the community can be encouraged is the allocation of micro-grants for small-scale projects. This program has been implemented for four years now, and at WikiLive, project leaders shared with the audience the successes and challenges they encountered and thus encouraged those who have some idea to apply and launch an initiative that will contribute to human knowledge.

In addition to the micro-grants, Wikimedia Serbia also awards annual grants, and Ivana Madžarević explained how to apply for them at the Project writing workshop. The crucial things that need to be explored before applying with a project were discussed, and the participants had a mini workshop through which they were in the role of the Applicant and the Committee that decides which projects are going to be selected.


User:Drazetad, the winner of Branislav Jovanović award for contribution to Wikipedia and free knowledge
Goran Milovanović presenting Wikidata

A presentation on the Wikidata was held by Goran Milovanović, a data scientist working for Wikimedia Deutschland, who presented the basics of Wikidata to the participants in a very simple way, which motivated many of them to get involved in this wiki project. Goran has announced plans to start such workshops in the upcoming period, which should be a stepping stone for a wider community working on the Wikidata.

Recalling that Wikimedia Serbia has established the Branislav Jovanović award, in memory of the late Vice President of Wikimedia Serbia, Filip emphasized that although the decision was not easy, the Board tried to choose a Wikipedian who has been devotedly editing Serbian Wikipedia since its very beginning. Since this year has been anniversary of 15 years since the creation of Serbian Wikipedia, it has been decided that the Branislav Jovanović award for 2018 belongs to Mr. Dražen Dražeta, who has made more than 147,000 changes under the username Drazetad and wrote as many as 16,189 articles.

With the announcement of the winner, WikiLive 2018 conference has officially ended. Unofficially, the conference was continued at cafes and walks on Belgrade streets, where the ideas for new activities in the wiki world have come up, which we will talk about next year, with new topics in the new edition of the conference.
