Purpose of the report[edit]

This form is for organizations receiving Annual Plan Grants to report on their results to date. For progress reports, the time period for this report will the first 6 months of each grant (e.g. 1 January - 30 June of the current year). For impact reports, the time period for this report will be the full 12 months of this grant, including the period already reported on in the progress report (e.g. 1 January - 31 December of the current year). This form includes four sections, addressing global metrics, program stories, financial information, and compliance. Please contact APG/FDC staff if you have questions about this form, or concerns submitting it by the deadline. After submitting the form, organizations will also meet with APG staff to discuss their progress.

Global metrics overview - all programs[edit]

We are trying to understand the overall outcomes of the work being funded across our grantees' programs. Please use the table below to let us know how your programs contributed to the Global Metrics. We understand not all Global Metrics will be relevant for all programs, so feel free to put "0" where necessary. For each program include the following table and

  1. Next to each required metric, list the outcome achieved for all of your programs included in your proposal.
  2. Where necessary, explain the context behind your outcome.
  3. In addition to the Global Metrics as measures of success for your programs, there is another table format in which you may report on any OTHER relevant measures of your programs success

For more information and a sample, see Global Metrics.

Metric Achieved outcome Explanation
1. # of active editors involved 269 (5+ edits; 80 frwiki; 6 itwiki; 140 dewiki; 43 We made an extra effort this year to reach out and engage with our communities. Geographical disparities affect how we can interact and offer services across different regions, however. Almost no overlap across languages, even though most people here speak 2-3 languages fluently.
2. # of new editors 218 Wiki Loves Earth by far has the higher impact (149 new editors). Overall retention, however, is well below 10%.
3. # of individuals involved About 1,800. This includes audiences from conference talks, shared activities with our OpenData partners, members (only a minority are active Wikipedians), etc..
WMCH press coverage: 45 segments (34 newspapers, 7 TV, 4 radio - in German, French and Italian); Newspaper aggregate circulation ca. 1.658 million.
4. # of new images/media added to Wikimedia articles/pages About 120,000 uploads on Commons
2,400 media used in articles/pages
Around 70,000 media were curated, high-value (rare) GLAM content.
Reuse rate is a low estimate - some images may be incompletely categorized. We also designed logos related to Wikipedia15 for half a dozen other chapters in November, and they were widely reused (an additional 3,000 on various meta spaces).
5. # of articles created on Wikimedia projects 30,000 About 13,000 come from it.wikisource and latin wiki support projects. Other creations, in order: dewiki (8,500), frwiki (4,300), wikidata & itwiki (1,300 each), and enwiki (ca. 1,100).

Telling your program stories - all programs[edit]

Please tell the story of each of your programs included in your proposal. This is your chance to tell your story by using any additional metrics (beyond global metrics) that are relevant to your context, beyond the global metrics above. You should be reporting against the targets you set at the beginning of the year throughout the year. We have provided a template here below for you to report against your targets, but you are welcome to include this information in another way. Also, if you decided not to do a program that was included in your proposal or added a program not in the proposal, please explain this change. More resources for storytelling are at the end of this form. Here are some ways to tell your story.

  • We encourage you to share your successes and failures and what you are learning. Please also share why are these successes, failures, or learnings are important in your context. Reference learning patterns or other documentation.
  • Make clear connections between your offline activities and online results, as applicable. For example, explain how your education program activities is leading to quality content on Wikipedia.
  • We encourage you to tell your story in different ways by using videos, sound files, images (photos and infographics, e.g.), compelling quotes, and by linking directly to work you produce. You may highlight outcomes, learning, or metrics this way.
  • We encourage you to continue using dashboards, progress bars, and scorecards that you have used to illustrate your progress in the past, and to report consistently over time.
  • You are welcome to use the table below to report on any metrics or measures relevant to your program. These may or may not include the global metrics you put in the overview section above. You can also share your progress in another way if you do not find a table like this useful.

Additional comments

The microgrant program increased from 10 demands in 2014 to 14 in 2015, which is slighlty below expectations (20-ish). In the end, we had three broad types of demands: content-related (photo equipment or source material), Kiwix-related (donating equipment) and community-centered (IRL meetings and such). Except for the former, there is obviously little direct impact to show for it, but we consider it part of our retention strategy to keep people happy (meetings play a big role in defusing conflicts), and we consider the occasional distribution of Kiwix equipment as free (or cheap) advertising: it does sound good to potential partners to hear that the Senegalese Navy is using Kiwix.

Another positive impact from our support program (accreditations and support to photographers) came this Fall with the 2015 Rugby World Cup. As previously indicated, the lending/sharing of photographic equipment is not so popular with our contributors, but we do help them to get press accreditations and pay for travel costs when they attend an event. One such contributor has been attending regular season Rugby games right across the border, which over time allowed him to build a decent collection of player mugshots: the French championship level is rather high and attracts a lot of foreign players, most of whom ended up being on the roster of their national teams during World Cup. In the end, this helped significantly improve the value of articles when trafic increased during that period. We have similar stories with Hockey and Jumping.

Support volunteers' initiatives[edit]

Support to targeted, high-value projects can greatly extend our impact on the projects: the Swiss Public Domain Project is a very good example with their effort to digitize performances that fell into the public domain. According to Glamorgan, the 283 files in the category have been consulted 1,884,389 times in December 2015 alone.

Another way to extend our impact is to provide support to smaller chapters. We hosted Wikimedia User Group Pakistan's website that was used to present and list the items available for their own contest. That is an additional 10,739 uploads: 6.5% (706) are now used on more than a thousand Wikimedia project pages. Unfortunately, the WLE statistics page is now down and we couldn't quantify the number of new editors that have joined Wikimedia projects because of this. But one of them won the international contest.

See discussion below
We will organize at least two workshops to improve the accessibility of DE:WP, in collaboration with the Foundation "Zugang für Alle“ and "Patuluslab" n/a cancelled cancelled Do to understaffing we decided not to run these.

We run two types of meetups in our two largest language groups. This is interesting because it reflects two different dynamics:

  • In the German-speaking area (the larger population), local communities are big enough that they can now support themselves and organize their own local events (the Stammtisch, which initially was only held in Zurich). Variations have emerged because of local idiosyncrasies - quite a few Wikipedians in Bern are related to GLAMs and leveraged this to hold their meetings at work, and open the event to non-Wikipedians (or newcomers): these "ateliers" (workshops) are kind of soft, friendly edit-a-thons who help ease new contributors in the community. In Thurgau, the librarians not only support the Wikipedians with regards to the research of Books and sources but also the editing-sessions are dedicated to specific topics. As a result of the Wikipedia-Atelies in Thurgau, the Portal:Thurgau has been newly created in the german-speaking Wikipedia.
  • On the francophone side, editors are much more spread out geographically, making regularly scheduled meetings harder to organize. There are also more frictions with French contributors from France, who for instance tend to see a lot of notability issues from a centralistic, almost Parisian point of view (as cliché as that sounds) : the goal of the yearly Festicabale, therefore, is to allow people to meet, build relationships and create a Swiss cabal that can be leveraged at the frwiki level to defend Swiss content and contributors.
Gender gap workshops

We clearly aimed too high in thinking that FewWiss could organize one edit-a-thon a month. But they've proved valuable partners, and we are very happy to continue working with them in German-speaking Switzerland (they regularly communicate on Wikipedia and gender gap issues, and other events are planned in 2016). Liaising with such thematic organizations -and leveraging their network- is a also a very good opportunity to create new partnerships : that's how we got to engage with the University of Geneva office for equality, who was also interested in hosting gender-gap events but didn't even know about Wikimedia CH. We ended up starting a training curriculum for female editors which has met a huge success. The University has taken over the communication effort and provided the infrastructure, and we recruited highly motivated participants. One of the key learnings here is that people (or at least newcomers) appreciate having a clear framework of action (i.e. "After six sessions you should have created your first article on this particular topic"), and working (and progressing) as a group seems key to retention (which seems to be as high as 50%). Some contributors are now joining for the second sessions as mentors for the beginners. One point we'll need to address rapidly though is the integration of this population with older editors, whose online dynamics are much more aggressive.

Bottom line - we haven't been shy about leveraging our partners' networks and resources, and it paid off handsomely.

Like-minded communities[edit]

Target Last year (if applicable) Progress (at end of Q2) Projected (end of year) Comments
Distributed our newsletter to the Swiss Open Communities through and OSMCH mailing lists n/a Not yet Ongoing

Join at least two Open Hackdays organized by in 2015, with the participation of at least 5 Wikimedians leading to the creation of content on at least two Wikimedia projects n/a Yes check.svg Done Yes check.svg Done See below.

This is a good example of medium-term investment and, again, leveraging partnerships. After the successful collaborations we've had over the year, has decided that the central theme of their 2016 General Assembly / workshop day will be Wikidata, from which we expect a good number of new editors. Conversely, we've lowered our collaboration with other groups (e.g. openGLAM). Generally speaking, we re-assess such collaborations every 2-3 years based on synergies that did or did not happen during that timeframe.

We're also supporting the broader Wikimedia Chapters community by hosting the Chapters wiki and mailing list, which are most notably used to hold elections for Affiliate-designated board seats, or sharing resources when for instance we had a graphic designer prepare Wikipedia15 logos for half a dozen other chapters and user groups. As far as smaller communities are concerned, beside Wikimedia Pakistan mentioned above we also provide infrastructure for:

  • Wikimedia Kenya (public Wiki, Mailinglist)
  • Wikimedians in Kansai (public Wiki)
  • Wikimedia Slovakia (public Wiki, WLM-Website, Mails)
  • Wikimedia User Group Nepal (public Wiki, Board Wiki, Mailinglist)
  • Wikimedia Belgium.

We also host a GLAM Upload Server (SFTP Service, trusted Commons Crossloading) which is used by GLAMwikitoolset users and WikiMini, a Wikipedia-like encyclopedia specifically geared towards 9-13 years-olds: available stats for this project show 2,500 new articles, 30,000 active users from a dozen francophone countries + Sweden (the site is available in both languages and showcased by WMSE in its education programs).


Offline dissemination, a.k.a. Kiwix[edit]

Look at it. Just look at it.

We registered a 58% progression in Kiwix downloads in 2015, at 762,000 unique downloads. It being offline this does not obviously translate into additional editors or new content (at least not in any measurable way), but we feel reasonably complementary to Wikipedia Zero. We also won a Swiss Open Source award (image above), which is a nice recognition of our work.

  1. We'd had discussions with a potential GLAM partner in the first half of 2015 about a training scheme whereby we'd invoice specific trainings for mass uploads of their collections. Being shortstaffed, we decided to prioritize content over income and rather than ask the partner to wait we leveraged our GLAM network who sent someone to run the training on our behalf (and for free). This led to several thousand uploads of curated material on Wikimedia projects.
  2. We vastly exceeded our initial objectives thanks to the support we provide to local communities. As discussed above, several contributors who happen to work in GLAM institutions decided to host events at their workplace. The Swiss Biographies edit-a-thon is a very good example of how we succeeded in leveraging one program to benefit another one.
  3. A GLAM team has been set up in Ticino to specifically work with small GLAMs. Five institutions indicated their interest in donating content. The project is working well because these museums or galleries are too small to start a bigger project but operating with several small GLAMs at the same time allows for economies of scale. One of the key learnings at this stage is that we should segment our partnership, i.e. having museums and galleries together but keeping them separated from libraries and archive as their approach to culture is different and lead in fine to different implementation strategies. GLAMs really should be considered as LA/MG (or less palatable acronym, admittedly).
  4. As discussed the Wikipermanences do not provide a clear enough content for new/potential contributors to "get hooked" (as opposite to a thematic edit-a-thon). They proved to be however a very good outreach tool with the institutions that hosted them.
  5. The students involved had the course integrated as part of their Bachelor of Documentary Information. Beyond their training as editors, we're banking on the fact that these kids, ultimately will become librarians or work in GLAMs - meaning that a few years down the road we will be able to leverage them to grow content and organize events (just like we discuss in point 2 above).

Thematic approach[edit]

Target Last year (if applicable) Progress (at end of Q2) End of year Comments
Submit a transnational project related to the Alps for EU funding n/a On hold On hold See below

The thematic program on Alpine dialects focuses on the building a digital library in Rhaeto-romansh. The libraries of this language have several problems in Italy because of the reduction of available public funds. Wikisource has become one of the largest repositories of Rhaeto-romansh resources (a mostly automated task due to the lack of contributor/locutors). The fragmented nature of these dialects does not really help and makes it a long term involvement.

The new and improved website greatly improved our donator conversion rate and more than made up for shortfalls in other areas.

As regards in-kind donations, the biggest contribution came from Y&R/Futurecom's redesign of our website (32'000 CHF @250.- CHF/hour). Then came the organisation of two conferences ahead of our Gender Gap training workshops (CHF 30'000.-, incl. rent, food and speaker fees (no breakdown given by our partners)) and a day's worth of work provided by Googlers as part of the Google Serve program to help fix bugs in Kiwix (ca. 9'000 CHF). Other donations mostly covered edit-a-thons, with an average of CHF 100.- for food and CHF 250-500.- for room.
