schrijfweken Maand van de Geschiedenis[edit]

What is the purpose of the campaign? How will you measure the success of the campaign?[edit]

Description - In October 2021, as part of History Month, we will organize writing weeks in the theme of At Work. We will do this in cooperation with the organization of Month of History (an initiative of Nederlands Openlucht Museum). The aim is to inspire new editors to contribute and to offer a challenge to the existing community. Subjects that fall within the theme are broad. Think of supplementing knowledge on crafts but also, for example, on contract labor, labor migration, slavery, labor participation of women, etc. Participants can contribute to the Wikimedia projects they are interested in: Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata are central.

Central Notice admin comments[edit]

@Natalia Szelachowska (WMCZ): Hello Natalia! I'm sorry, but the landing page is not sufficient for a central notice banner at this point. It seems the centralnotice (CN) should be created to propagate a WMCZ-organized editathon. However, neither of the Wikimedia-hosted pages linked in your CN request ([1] [2]) mentions the editathon at all.

The sign up form does mention the editathon, but as it's not Wikimedia-hosted, it cannot be linked from a central notice banner.

Could you please create a Wikimedia-hosted landing page that can be linked from the banner?

Thank you, --Martin Urbanec (talk) 20:52, 4 June 2021 (UTC)

Hello Martin @Martin Urbanec:, thank you for your comment. We've created a project website with more detailed information on edit-a-thon and competition. Please check it out and let me know if it's sufficient or if we should provide you with something else: https://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedie:WikiProjekt_Zm%C4%9Bna_klimatu#WikiKlima_v%C3%BDzva_2021 --Natalia Szelachowska (WMCZ) (talk) 16:54, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

@Natalia Szelachowska (WMCZ) Thanks for the link! Can we make it a standalone page rather than a section? Linking to a section is less reliable than to link to a page. Otherwise, it LGTM. Martin Urbanec (talk) 17:26, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

Ok, thank you for the feedback, I have created a website: https://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedie:Wikiklima_v%C3%BDzva_2021 --Natalia Szelachowska (WMCZ) (talk) 20:03, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

I know this a very last minute request. :( But, pls, hope @Ата: and @Ciell: can help here. Sturm (talk) 21:01, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

Hi @Sturm: you only want to target the Portuguese Wikipedia. Why not use your local site notice? It's empty and every admin can help you with that. The proposed banner is already in wiki-text, which needs to be converted to html by the CN admin first, and this would cost more time, plus through the Mediawiki extension the community will be able to self-govern the banner, opposed to being dependent on CN admins when you use the CN banner. Ciell (talk) 06:47, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
Adding Alchimista to the ping-party. Ciell (talk) 06:50, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

I'm sorry you did not receive an update so far. Is there anything the CN admins can do for you at this point? Best, --Martin Urbanec (talk) 20:23, 5 June 2021 (UTC)

20th Birthday of Spanish Wikipedia[edit]

What is the purpose of the campaign? How will you measure the success of the campaign?[edit]

Description - It is the 20th anniversary of Spanish Wikipedia and we want to celebrate with all the community.

From May 12 to 26, the chapters and user groups of Spanish Wikipedia are launching a set of activities, including a global editathon that will move from different time zones across the globe. So in order to have all the activities in one place, we will need a banner. We opened the possibility to all the spanish wikipedia community to put their activities in the landing page, that way all the groups will benefit from this banner and we all can celebrate the anniversary as a community.

Metrics - Page views. New articles improved and created.

Hi @Ciell:, @Martin Urbanec: hope everything is ok with you and your families. I just wanted to ask if you had the opportunity to review this proposal. Thank you in advance :-).--Carla Toro (WMCL) (talk) 20:58, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

Hi @DerHexer:, @Romaine: hope everything is ok with you and your families too. I just wanted to see if anyone had the chance to review this proposal. Thank you! :-).--Carla Toro (WMCL) (talk) 22:14, 6 May 2021 (UTC)
@Cftoro (WMCL): I've created the campaign and banner. Banners require html code and not wiki markup. I tried to rebuild it but it looks slightly different. You can find a preview here. Please tell me if that's okay for you, then I can enable the campaign. It will run as requested. Best, —DerHexer (Talk) 22:24, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
@DerHexer: Thank you so much! The banner it's Ok :-). I will do it in html for the next time. --Carla Toro (WMCL) (talk) 15:29, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos Campaign 2021[edit]

What is the purpose of the campaign? How will you measure the success of the campaign?[edit]

Description - The Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (WPWP) is an annual campaign where Wikipedians across Wikipedia language projects and communities add photos to Wikipedia articles lacking images. This is to promote the use of digital media files collected from various WP photography contests, photowalks organized by the Wikimedia community, on Wikipedia article pages. Thousands of images have been donated and contributed to Wikipedia Commons via various advocacy programs, photowalks, and contests including international photography contests such as Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth, Wiki Loves Folklore, etc. Yet relatively few of these photos have been used on Wikipedia articles. Today, the Wikimedia Commons hosts millions of photo images but only a tiny portion of these have been used on Wikipedia article pages. This is a huge gap that this project aims at bridging

Romaine, since you are on the team, will you be handling this request? I understood the team would like to start the translation of the banner preferably before the campaign starts. Ciell (talk) 20:32, 3 June 2021 (UTC)

I am not in this years team, and I am lacking time to do this banner. Romaine (talk) 20:34, 3 June 2021 (UTC)
Thanks Romaine. I found last years code, and should be able to easily recycle it I think. Ciell (talk) 19:57, 4 June 2021 (UTC)

In order to be pro-active as always, I think it should be done before the campaign as well. Thank you --Azogbonon (talk) 08:35, 4 June 2021 (UTC)

Pro-active is good! ;-) Ciell (talk) 19:57, 4 June 2021 (UTC)
So T Cells, here's the banner for 2021: preview. What do you think? Please test the translations link in the right bottom as well. Ciell (talk) 20:20, 4 June 2021 (UTC)
(And yes, you can start translations immediately, if everyone is okay with this text! The translations of the banner will not interfere with any last minute tweaking of the visual mark up, so go right ahead. :) Ciell (talk) 20:26, 4 June 2021 (UTC))
Wow! I have looked at the preview [linked above], the banner looks good. Thank you so much, Ciell. We'd use the translation at Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos/CentralNotice since it's the same text. I'd follow up with User:Tulsi Bhagat, our communication manager on getting translation for additional langauges. We appreciate this valuable work, Ciell. Regards.

  • @Natalia Szelachowska (WMCZ): THere would be a few day overlap with your proposed campaign, but I hope that is not a problem. I think they can run concurrently. Effeietsanders (talk) 18:10, 5 June 2021 (UTC)
  • @이강철 (WMKR): There would be overlap with your campaign in Korean Wikipedia. I think they can run concurrently, especially given that our focus is the days after. Effeietsanders (talk) 18:39, 5 June 2021 (UTC)

  • @Romaine: It looks like there will be overlap with Wiki Loves Earth. Not sure in how many countries. Given that we're not close to your final sprint at the end of the month, and that you're more focused on anonymous and we're more on logged-in, do you foresee problems?
