Hello, I am a little bit unhappy about the recent state of this page. When I conceived it earlier, I divided the movement into the platforms where the persons are active (wikis, Foundation, other organizations). A movement is a social phenomenon, it consists of people or groups of people. "Shared values" are not people and not a part of a movement. Also, I imagine that some things could be clearer. Sometimes I think the wording could be made easier to read. If this page is meant to help people understand the movement better, and get an overview, it needs a lot of improvement. --Ziko (talk) 02:39, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
- The original definition by Anthere was cleanest and clearest, but people like addenda to feel they have their slice of the cake. :-)
- Shared values are what make and define a movement, they are the movement. People are transient. So, of course these "are part" of the thing. Probably there are cultural barriers here, e.g. in Italian you have movimentismo and in France a certain view of mouvement, in English the terms seem mostly used by certain fringe groups and w:Social movement is a mess too.
- As for explaining the Wikimedia movement itself, no, that's not the job of this page. This page only explains the "movement" part, not the "Wikimedia" part. Explaining Wikimedia and the Wikimedia movement is the job of this whole wiki. --Nemo 19:52, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
- @Nemo bis and Ziko: I've boldly added the ecosystem map, as many people have commented on how helpful it is for understanding how the movement relates to the broader world. Hope that seems reasonable/useful. :) Quiddity (talk) 18:48, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
- @Nemo bis: Hi again! I see you have now removed that image with the edit-summary "Remove non-representative image with random names".
- Is there any way we could improve the caption, or the image itself, to make it possible to put it back? I understand the concern that the limited number of examples shown in the existing image isn't comprehensive. But I do believe the image is still a highly-insightful step in the right direction though - it is potentially useful for anyone inside or outside of the Wikimedia movement to understand/remember that we're part of a broader free knowledge movement, and that image is the best method I've seen for doing so, especially for "visual thinkers" like me. Perhaps a clearer caption would sufficiently (if not totally) solve your concerns for the time-being, until someone comes up with a better infographic representation? Thanks.

- Per your comment and the discussion above, I've restored the original definition, which is much easier: «The Wikimedia movement is the totality of people, activities and values which revolve around Wikimedia sites and projects». Part of the complexity was recently added by an unexplained edit. Nemo 17:46, 17 December 2015 (UTC)

About the movement
Request for semi-protection of this (Wikimedia movement) page
Hello Meta-Wiki Admins,
Due to heavy vandalism on this page, I wish to request that it should be semi-protected to counteract this activity. See history for more details: https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikimedia_movement&action=history. Thanks --Alangi Derick (talk) 11:50, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
Who represents the Wikimedia movement?
old browsers to be blocked jan 2020
i get a warning that for the sake of better https security, old browsers will be blocked from accessing wikipedia starting next year.
i understand this to be an applaudable benefit to the proud iphone owners in oil producing islamic countries who will then be able to better hide their interest in homosexuality related articles which reading in their jurisdiction might be illegal. however, this your attempt might as well be frustrated by such users' home countries simply blocking wikipedia access altogether, or limiting it to access via a proxy of their own which removes https altogether and makes locally illegitimate use trackable again, so that your effort for privacy achieves nothing.
but what you do achieve is to exclude the poor, who are the majority of the world population, the third world or even first world underclass kid with the stolen or donated old phone that's trying to read up into the education their states can't provide them, so their family's next phone, or that of their own children one day, won't need to be a stolen or beggared one. or people who can only access from a rural african/asian/southamerican/siberian school library, the technical equipment of which they have no influence on.
i myself, since i don't smoke, will be able to buy that new 300 euro phone, despite being on welfare due to bad health, and though i hate to see the old one made useless trash after serving me 7 years, but several billion other users will not.
if you don't want to needlessly betray your goal and promise of free knowledge for all, keep http(even without s) access open to those who need it. nobody seeing what others read is of much less concern.
your annual donations request campaign starts some time now, what do you expect when you say, oh btw, the poorer 80 percent of you will be locked out from after xmas... ?

Lack of translation option
The last item below the heading "See also" cannot be translated. Current source code:
<!--T: 26--> * [[Complementary projects]]
In my opinion, the following source code should help:
<!--T:26--> * [[<tvar|complementary-projects>Complementary projects</>]]
- Sorry! I just see that the cause of the problem is the position of the closing tag (</translate>), which has to be below the text.
