Hello, Wikimedia Italia Colleagues (pinging Andrea, Simone, Luca, Cristian, Ginevra)!

I know you have published some (excellent, thank you!) financial and activity reports since 2011 :)

For example:

Would you mind linking them here on the Wikimedia Italia page on Meta (or perhaps simply removing that out of date section about Reports entirely and updating and linking to this page instead (Wikimedia_chapters/Reports/Wikimedia_Italia) and then linking the reports from the Reports page?

I think it would make it a lot easier for everyone to see that you guys are doing such a great job staying up to date with your financial reporting, and we would greatly appreciate it.

Cheers, Winifred Olliff (FDC Support Team) talk 00:27, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

OpenStreetMap membership[edit]

I see that Wikimedia Italy has applied for chapter membership] in the en:OpenStreetMap community. Interesting! Good luck with that. Wikimedia and OpenStreetMap are natural partners. Cascadia also is friendly with OSMappers. Blue Rasberry (talk) 16:02, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

Notification of Past Due Reporting[edit]

Greetings, This is a notification to bring to your attention that your organization is currently past due on its required annual reporting. Chapters are required to submit an annual activity and annual financial report covering the entirety of the 12-month agreement period due within 4 months of the end of the organizations fiscal year. Reports must be written in English, posted to meta, and linked on the meta Reports page.

This page is used to track how organizations and groups are meeting reporting requirements described in their agreements with the Wikimedia Foundation (e.g. chapter agreements, thematic organization agreements, user group agreements). It is the central place where affiliates can add reports about their activities, share their plans, and even news or social media channels with the wider movement. When new reports are available, organizations and groups should add them to this page to keep their columns up to date.

As noted on the meta Reports page, your organization’s 2016 annual reporting became past due in April. Please be sure to

  1. Post your 2016 annual reporting to the meta Reports page as soon as possible to return to compliance with your chapter agreement.
  2. Check that your group’s page is also up to date with past report links for historical record-keeping, and
  3. Please send an email to Wikimedia-l in order to share with a movement-wide audience.

If you have any questions or need any further guidance, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Write for the rights Tunis[edit]

Hi. Next march, the second edition of the Queer Film Festival is going to be held in Tunis, and as a way to engage in such project, I am organizing a 3 days editathon where participants will focus on writing articles related to the theme in the MENA Region. I am looking for a participant who is active in the italian Wikipedia who will be interested in joining us to the editathon and write about this topic. Thanks to the partnership I managed to make with the organizing committee, the participants will get access to the festival and participate in its activities. Also, we started this week a serie of workshops to train the community here in Tunis on editing in Wikipedia and uploading on Commons so that they help us write a bigger number of articles. Can you please help me reaching to the members of your community who can potentially be interested by such theme and events?

We have a grant to pay for the local expenses of the participants such as the accomodation, food and local transportation. I might also find a way to pay for the flight tickets if Wikimedia Italy can't pay forhim/her.

Anyone interested in joining, can contact me on my meta page or my email: --Houssem Abida (talk) 21:34, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

ASBS 2019[edit]

Ciao, nonostante questa pagina sia elencata su Global_message_delivery/Targets/Affiliations_Committee/Affiliates, non riceve i messaggi dai bot. Presumo che seguiate la bacheca centrale (e che quindi abbiate letto messaggi come questo lì), ma in un processo con un tale focus sull'inclusività (o inclusione? ci siamo capiti!), non è concesso presumere un bel niente e quindi questa è la vostra notifica non automatica che potreste perdervi aggiornamenti futuri se non seguite almeno quella bacheca :p Ciao! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 10:25, 13 March 2019 (UTC)

I am asking for your vote to help support emerging communities and promote an inclusive education environment on all wiki projects. Also, I plan to promote various other issues as I mention in my statement and answers to various questions. I ask that you show your support for the issues that need to be address by voting for me as one of your preferences.

My candidacy information page is Affiliate-selected Board seats/2019/Nominations/Gerald Shields on Meta or can be found at Gerald Shields candidate. As of the 7 May 2019 list of questions, I am the only candidate to have responded to all of the “Questions for all candidates - Questions for this individual candidate that do not apply to other candidates”.
