Xeno (WMF) and Pols12, I added the following template in the "about", but it doesn't appear in the Brazilian Portuguese version, how do I make it appear: {{Wikimedia 2030/Header}}--Felipe da Fonseca (talk) 22:36, 10 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Can you clarify? I see your translation of the template. Xeno (WMF) (talk) 00:24, 11 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Xeno (WMF): I did this: diff, but it still doesn't appear in brazilian portuguese version: [[1]]. --Felipe da Fonseca (talk) 10:35, 11 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Felipe da Fonseca It didn't appear because the page was not marked up for translation once more after you changed it, so the translation pages were not updated. I just did, so now it appears properly. To answer your point in the edit summary ("why not?"), it's simply because the header doesn't look good right now - it's not centralized as opposed to the page's already existing header. In any case, I agree that we need to have it, I hope someone will be able to fix the look as I myself am not sure how--Abbad (WMF) (talk) 10:44, 11 May 2021 (UTC).Reply[reply]
Abbad (WMF) Thank you. So after each update the page needs to be prepared and remarked for translation?--Felipe da Fonseca (talk) 10:52, 11 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Abbad (WMF) One must take into account that navigation through the translated pages is more difficult than through the English pages, so such a template is much more important on the translated pages, and cannot be missing from them.--Felipe da Fonseca (talk) 10:58, 11 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Felipe da Fonseca Exactly! The changes only show up if the page is remarked for translation. I totally understand why the template is important for navigation (that's exactly why it was created!), and I believe the new placement is much better. Thank you --Abbad (WMF) (talk) 16:16, 11 May 2021 (UTC).Reply[reply]

Abbad (WMF) is there any special reason why this ({{Wikimedia 2030 Transition navbox}}) template is only in "initiatives"? Thanks. --Felipe da Fonseca (talk) 12:24, 13 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Felipe da Fonseca: Yes! Because the navigation box concerns Transition, which is a past phase of Strategy and most of the links there are not so useful anymore. I'll work on a new navigation box soon --Abbad (WMF) (talk) 10:46, 19 May 2021 (UTC).Reply[reply]
Abbad (WMF) thanks.--Felipe da Fonseca (talk) 10:52, 19 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Qgil-WMF thanks for the information, could you tell me if it is possible to apply for translation of the Strategy pages? In any case we at Wikisul User Group will investigate which of the topics best matches our activities so that we can contribute. Do you have any suggestions?--Felipe da Fonseca (talk) 10:49, 14 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Movement Charter next steps[edit]

Hi, after the Movement Charter conversations last weekend, we are proposing next steps for the next couple of weeks: Movement Strategy/Updates/June_15,_2021.

In the same link you can find the documents shared and produced last weekend. We are still working on the report. Qgil-WMF (talk) 18:33, 15 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is an invitation to discuss three questions that need answers in order to create the Movement Charter drafting committee. You can find more context about these questions on Movement Strategy/Events/Movement Charter Global Conversation, 26-27 June 2021. Qgil-WMF (talk) 20:18, 16 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Announcing a Movement Strategy grants peer support group[edit]

A Movement Strategy Peer Support Group has just been created. This will be the channel where people can discuss ideas around projects they are working on, that could potentially be funded through a Movement Strategy Grant. Please feel free to join the group if: a) you applied for a grant in the previous call, or b) you intend to apply for a grant in the next call. Here's the link to join the group. Feel free to reach out with any questions --Abbad (WMF) (talk) 12:33, 17 September 2021 (UTC).Reply[reply]


The old Strategy: wiki uses Wikiquote for wordmark when you visit via mobile. Should we change it?--Namoroka (talk) 19:00, 28 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Namoroka: Thank you for the note! This is a weird problem. However, since the website is archived and it's hard to even figure out who has access to it, it seems to me like something we can leave as it is. Do you expect other issues from it or think otherwise? --Abbad (WMF) (talk) 18:24, 29 December 2021 (UTC).Reply[reply]
Nope. I also agree with you because it's not a big deal. Thanks for your reply.--Namoroka (talk) 19:29, 29 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Project page outdated?[edit]

So far, the latest news of the Strategy is November 2021. Where are the latest updates? George Ho (talk) 09:32, 12 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@George Ho What is news? You study this: Movement Charter/Drafting Committee. Dušan Kreheľ (talk) 10:34, 12 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@George Ho @Dušan Kreheľ Yes, this has been a problem long overdue. Now we have this: Movement Strategy/Updates (which also connects to many others pages, e.g. Hubs, using content and translations from a central place). Feel free to watch or subscribe, if interested --Abbad (WMF) (talk) 00:39, 18 February 2022 (UTC).Reply[reply]

Evaluate, Iterate and Adapt[edit]

I know that the "evaluate, iterate and adapt" recommendation is not between the priorities, but I think that is very important because that is what tells us if we are in the right path. Is there some plan or some page to discuss the implementation of that recommendation? I have some ideas about it, for example we could create a page listing all Wikimedia activities with a progress bar and a short comment for each one. Danilo.mac talk 17:41, 16 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I didn't like the new forum, and I didn't find a page that list what other people are doing related to the evaluate recommendation. I am working in my personal initiative, I created a tool to analyze user retention, that is an important metric to evaluate and we didn't have a good tool for that yet. Now I am thinking in other ideas of tools and researches. I think it would be good if we have some way to organize the ideas, maybe some ideas are already implemented in somewhere or have someone working on it and we don't know. Danilo.mac talk 18:30, 30 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Abbad (WMF): I don't know if you saw my comments above. I saw there is now a page to list implementation projects related to the evaluate recommendation, but there is no link in "44. Monitoring, evaluation and learning at all levels with support and mutual accountability", do you know about any plan related to that? Danilo.mac talk 00:34, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ciao, @Danilo.mac! Thank you for your question, persistence, and for your being interested in this fundamental part of the Movement Strategy. Apologies for our delay in replying. You are right - it seems that there is not an overwhelming amount or urgency of activity in this domain, and yet it is crucial. It is intrinsically related also to Movement Strategy Recommendation #7: Manage Internal Knowledge. I know @Abbad (WMF) and I would welcome the chance to discuss this more with you and others interested in these topics. At the moment, we are quite taken with the activities of the Summit. Could we plan to connect with you later in September to learn more about your tool to analyze user retention and your other interests? Perhaps we can help spark some excitement on this Recommendation together with others? HEl-Youssef (WMF) (talk) 21:18, 6 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@HEl-Youssef (WMF): No problem, I just wanted to be sure that there is nobody else activity working or making detailed plans on that recommendation, I think I can infer by your answer that there is not. I am creating an user subpage where I will put my ideas, so when more people start to working on that recommendation they can consult the page. Danilo.mac talk 16:40, 7 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Danilo.mac that sounds good, Danilo. Thank you for doing that and letting me know. Let's connect again in September. HEl-Youssef (WMF) (talk) 22:24, 8 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Proposal for a Movement Strategy Forum[edit]

Hello everyone,

This is an invitation to all Movement Strategy participants to try out a new space for truly multilingual collaboration:

We are starting a community review period of two months. If the community feedback is positive, the Forum will launch in August 2022 before Wikimania. If not, we will follow the feedback received, changing the proposal or closing it.

Looking forward to your first impressions! Qgil-WMF (talk) 07:50, 24 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Question re lack of WMF response at new forum website[edit]

I would like to ask why the WMF has been so non-responsive in the new forums which have been established for discussion of the movement strategy. There have been numerous ideas being offered by various people and groups at the new forum website, many of them from regions around the world. The WMF amount of response, at the new forum website, has been very low; on some new threads there has been little or no response at all. I do not understand why. I thought that was the whole point of having the forums in the first place.

I would appreciate any input or assistance on this question. I appreciate your help. --Sm8900 (talk) 03:05, 17 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Sm8900: Maybe, the right space for Your question was Wikimedia Foundation Community Affairs Committee/2022-07-14 Conversation with Trustees and then next meeting. Dušan Kreheľ (talk) 04:23, 17 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Probably because the main aim is to get people like you to agree to them. Or to move the discussion somewhere obscure as is often the case on here.-15:19, 14 August 2022 (UTC)

Invitation to join the Movement Strategy Forum[edit]

Hello everyone,

The Movement Strategy Forum (MS Forum) is a multilingual collaborative space for all conversations about Movement Strategy implementation. We are inviting all Movement participants to collaborate on the MS Forum. The goal of the forum is to build community collaboration, using an inclusive multilingual platform.

The Movement Strategy is a collaborative effort to imagine and build the future of the Wikimedia Movement. Anyone can contribute to the Movement Strategy, from a comment to a full-time project.

Join this forum with your Wikimedia account, engage in conversations, and ask questions in your language.

The Movement Strategy and Governance team (MSG) launched the proposal for this MS Forum in May. After a 2-month review period, we have just published the Community Review Report. It includes a summary of the discussions, metrics, and information about the next steps.

We look forward to seeing you at the MS Forum!

Best regards,

Movement Strategy and Governance team

(Re)Introducing Movement Strategy - Back to the Basics[edit]

The Movement Strategy and Governance (MSG) team is making a conscious effort to make Movement Strategy an inclusive and diverse process for a largely non-initiated audience. To that effect, we are attempting to simplify the collective understanding of Movement Strategy, talk about available opportunities, and ways to participate in it. As devoted and cherished members of this forum, which is all about Movement Strategy, we welcome your thoughts on the following drafts. Please check these out here: where we start with text that provides a general introduction to Movement Strategy. HEl-Youssef (WMF) (talk) 20:33, 29 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
