Cool idea![edit]

Diary is more personal and free than, say an affiliate report! -Filipinayzd (talk) 13:00, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

@Filipinayzd: Thank you so much for your thought. Love to know it. I am looking forward to hear from other colleagues as well if they have some thought for this, and lastly we will move ahead. Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat (contribs | talk) 13:53, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
@Tulsi Bhagat: This is a cool idea. Which types of content we will add? Thank. Jhalmuri (talk) 22:14, 27 November 2019 (UTC)
@Jhalmuri: Thank you for writing! This is more a casual notebook. Any contents which you do here on Wiki world in day-to-day basis and that you want to share with all people. For example you can see mine diary, Tulsi Bhagat. Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat (contribs | talk) 02:10, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

Wikimedia Community Diary[edit]

I suggest that it goes more as a community diary than an individual one. By this I mean that whenever a community event takes place, (like a workshop, editathone, Photo Walkathone, conference or gathering etc.) let just one participant mark it up and make a very brief note about it here. A link to the actual event page or report should be mandatory.

This may have a real usefulness in the long term. It can act as a pulsemeter of how active each community or its outreach efforts are. It will also help act as a mild inter-community news exchange place. We may be able to run valuable analytics on the community as well as global Wikimedia health.


As for the structure, the page can be implemented as a tree structure with years/Months/Days. As it grows up, if necessary, we could even think of community based subpages.

@Viswaprabha: Thank you so much for your thought. Love to know it. Yeah, I agree with you. I've already thought of both as a community and an individual diary. It will be open to all Wikimedians those who wanna note any worthy activities done by them or a particular community. They can feel free to create a subpage. I feel, it's worth noting and sharing that activities/event/experiences with everyone. Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat (contribs | talk) 16:12, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

Wikimedia Space[edit]

This seems redundant. WMF already launched the Wikimedia Space. --seav (talk) 19:32, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

@Seav: I don't think its redundant. Actually, Wikimedia Diary is just a memory book (notebook) in which we will record worthy noting event/activities/experiences on the happened date. We will not use it for discussion, neither questioning nor conversation. I believe Wikimedia Space and Wikimedia Diary is different in that way.
