Welcome to the IEG Committee[edit]

Hi Addis,
Thanks for signing up to join the Individual Engagement Grants Committee! It is my pleasure to confirm your membership. We’ve got a lot to accomplish together, particularly during the next 2 months, and it will be awesome to have your help. Here is how to get started:


To make your membership official, please do 2 things by Tuesday April 2:

  1. Introduce yourself in the IdeaLab.
  2. Send your email address and preferred username to IEGrants@wikimedia.org, so that we can subscribe you to the committee mailing list and get you setup on the committee's internal wiki.

Then there are 3 first tasks for active committee members to start on right away:

  1. Read the information in the Committee Workroom (your committee organizing hub on meta), beginning with the getting started guide for new members.
  2. Join a working group.
  3. Start giving feedback on open ideas, drafts and proposals. Asking questions to gather information you’ll need to make a recommendation helps prospective grantees think their projects all the way through, and will give us more great proposals to choose from.


Our formal review of proposals starts on 21 April. I’ll be posting information about scoring and selection of proposals on the committee mailing list and in the Workroom soon, so please keep an eye there!

Thanks again for joining us to help make impactful IEGrants :-) Siko (WMF) (talk) 17:01, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

The edit visualization tool[edit]

Hi Addis, Thanks for offering to help. To bring Chinese support to the tool, we'll need to add the Chinese translations for the messages in the tool. You could do that but forking the tool on github & editing https://github.com/cosmiclattes/wikireplay/blob/standalone/js/lib/namespace.js. A simpler way would be to send me the translations for the following phrases:

  • Enter article name
  • Place the peg on the edit to play
  • Click Play
  • Enjoy viewing edits
  • Show History
  • What is replay edits
  • Enter article name
  • Speed
  • Relay/pause
  • Article does not exist

I'll then enable zh on the tool & chinese articles will work too :-) --Jeph paul (talk) 06:12, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Sunday 17 May 2015 User groups meet up at WMCON[edit]

中国维基媒体用户组成员申请[edit]

(由于中文维基百科被封,且我未申请IP封禁豁免,故在这里联系你)

今天刚看见 phab 上的建站申请成功了,恭喜一下。我阅读了那个页面,并感到非常期望参加用户组,且我对用户组一定有帮助。

  • 首先,硬性条件:我是长期居留在上海(自从加入维基媒体)的非本国公民,并已满16周岁。
  • 我是在中文维基导游贡献最多的用户之一(当然也是管理员),并经历了从一个又小又充满漏洞的测试维基到一个真正可以使用的维基的过程。
  • 我是在维基共享资源的长期修复小毛病的用户,拥有六万多编辑,并操作四个机器人。
  • 我是在Tool Labs的工具制作、维护者(如 Commons Archive,一个存放维基共享资源的照片等的源文件的库),并在上面运行机器人。
  • 会费每财年人民币壹圆是没问题的,只要提供一个付费方式。

我相信我的加入会给用户组一个更方便的方式与其他社群(维基导游、维基共享资源)沟通,与技术方面的一些支持 --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 12:07, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

Movement Wide Finance Report 2014[edit]

Dear AddisWang,

I’m Alex, currently a finance fellow (i.e intern) at the Wikimedia Foundation. I worked before for Wikimedia France, planning the Hackathon Lyon 2015 mainly. I'm today contacting you because of your activity for Wikimedia China User Group.

Last year, Finance Fellows produced a financial report that included financial activity from every chapters. It was great and has been presented at the Wikimania in Mexico.

If you haven’t seen the results of the Report 2013, here they are: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Chapter-wide_Financial_Trends_Report_2013

We’re currently starting the Report 2014 and this year we also want to include user groups to improve the scope of our work. I want to tell you that I’ve tried to make the process as short and easy as possible, so that shouldn’t require a lot of your time.

The aim of such a report is global. It helps having an idea of how the money is used across the movement, it helps chapters and user groups to learn about best practice and finally it leads to more transparency through a qualitative work, which I believe is important.

Could you briefly tell me if you had any income and expenses in 2014? If you are not the person responsible for this, please tell me who is the user the most likely to know this information.

I’ll be your contact for this project this year, I’m looking forward to working with you!

Cheers, ACella (WMF) (talk) 21:05, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Central Notice Banner[edit]

Hi Addis,

I've create a separate project page for Wikipedia Asian Month here:

Project page

We like to see a localized version of the Central Notice Banner directing to the above page and NOT the ENWP page.

Please here us.--Muzammil (talk) 09:32, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

Re: Wikipedia Asia Month[edit]

Yeah, I'm also thinking about signing up Minangkabau for this event :) Unfortunately our community is still very small (3-4 active contributors), but I'll contact them to know whether they're interested to launch WAM in Minangkabau. I'll let you know before 30 October. Cheers! Muhraz (talk) 07:26, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

Centralnotice adminship[edit]

Hello AddisWang, I've just closed your request for centralnotice adminshiop as successful and granted you the respective right. Please take care and enjoy your new duty. -Barras talk 11:37, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

@Barras:Thank You!--AddisWang (talk) 13:41, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

Congrats, Addis, on your new role. --Muzammil (talk) 20:07, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

Broken centralnotice[edit]

The "Wikipedia Asia Month" banner (which I think you created?) doesn't seem to be configured correctly. The CentralNotice calendar says it's supposed to be targeted to just users in Asian countries, but users in other countries are seeing the banner as well. Also, the banner is overlapping with page titles in monobook. Are you able to fix this? --Yair rand (talk) 20:24, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

@Yair rand:, it was created by Shizhao, I will ask him about it.--AddisWang (talk) 20:31, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hello. Thank you very much for update. I have question. You wrote Any Asian topic will be counted. Topics do not have to be about geopgraphy.. Example, users can not create articles about cities, villages, lakes, rivers and etc. ?--Serk@nl@nd 11:12, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

No. "Don't have to be" means, "it is not necessary to be only about geography". Because many people confused and think only geography article counts. So I make a statement that all topics are count, not only geography.--AddisWang (talk) 11:15, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

So they can create articles about cities, villages, lakes, rivers and etc.--AddisWang (talk) 11:16, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
Thank you. I understood. --Serk@nl@nd 11:19, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia Asian Month in french[edit]

Hello. Thank you for your help. I did the translations you asked. I have an other question : am I free to use the presentation I want on the Participants page ? The way the participants have to report their contribution in the english version is not very easy, in my opinion. And I don't think we will have so many participants in french. So I would like to present it in a different way. Is it possible ? Thank you very much. --Eponimm (talk) 15:08, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Thank you. --Eponimm (talk) 17:17, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
Hello AddisWang. I have an other question : at the end of the month, as I don't use the tool to collect the results, how shall I transmitt them ? I just want to be sure that the french participants will receive their postcard. As well for the "Wikipedia Asian Ambassador". Should I prepare something ? Is there a model ? Thank you in advance. --Eponimm (talk) 09:09, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
Great! It's really simple this way. Thank you very much for your help! --Eponimm (talk) 15:51, 4 November 2015 (UTC)
Hello AddisWang. Today the banner to promote Wikipedia Asian Month appeared on the french Wikipédia with the translation I did previous weeks. But the problem is that the link redirects to the english page and not to the french page of the contest. Is it a technical error ? Did I miss something in my translation ? Thank you in advance. --Eponimm (talk) 13:38, 16 November 2015 (UTC)
It works perfectly! Thank you very much! --Eponimm (talk) 06:40, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
Hello AddisWang. I need your help one more time, sorry. I write a new question on Q&A page and I didn't have an answer. It's about the admissibility of a person. Thank you very much for your help. --Eponimm (talk) 06:34, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Judging tool[edit]

Hello AddisWang! judging tool doesn't count expanded articles to check Progress for users who contributed with an existing article. What should We do for this?--Randeerjayasekara (talk) 03:35, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your answer. We have translated rules from EnWp and that's why the problem occurred because there is no such a rule given in Meta. I'm the only one who have done expansion yet. Then I'll remove that rule from local page.--Randeerjayasekara (talk) 12:20, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi, can we get the tool enabled on Latvian Wikipedia (lvwiki)? --Papuass (talk) 13:54, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi AddisWang,

I made a request in central notice for this event -> https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Encuentros/Editat%C3%B3n_Abuelas_de_Plaza_de_Mayo a few days ago but nobody answer me. Can you help me? Now the archivebot delete my request so I do it again today. I hope you can help me? --Giselle Bordoy WMAR (talk) 17:04, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

WAM Organizers[edit]

Thank you for posting the invitation for the WAM Organizers on my talk page. It's already 11/12, but can I be an Organizer? In Japanese Wikipedia, there are only three organizers, so I would like to do it. If I could, where is the applicaton page? Thank you.--Psjk2106 (talk) 15:51, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

After "month"[edit]

Hello. When WAM 2015 ended, what must I do? Should I make Google form and sent it to users (created 5 and more articles) to fill? And if this is so, where must I send this form?--Serk@nl@nd 17:50, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

@Serkanland:Please confirm this.--AddisWang (talk) 02:08, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Korean translation of your mass message[edit]

Question[edit]

Again Hi AddisWang. Thank you very much for important information which you place my Azerbaijanian talk page. I have a question: As 25 November in project two user very active: Qolcomaq, who has 80 quailfied articles for present (his contributions here) and Enver62, who has 76 quailfied articles for present (his contributions here). If one of them ranked second place, can I announce his as "Second Wikipedia Asian Ambassador"? And where must I show "Second Wikipedia Asian Ambassador"?--Serk@nl@nd 10:46, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

And I translated message for encourage local participants: az:İstifadəçi:Serkanland/mass/az. Must I or you send it?--Serk@nl@nd 11:28, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

That is actually a trick question. As we want to have some competition over the title, to make it kind of valuable. Maybe let's keep it in only one Ambassador, and maybe have another discussion at the end of the event whether we can have a second Ambassador on AzWp? Does this idea make sense?--AddisWang (talk) 18:15, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

You can send the message. I will send message for some Wikipedia which has large number of participants. Since we can use mass message to send this to hundreds of people. But not necessary for 10 or 20 participants. It depends on if you want to send it.--AddisWang (talk) 18:20, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
Okey. I understood everthing. Again thank you for help.--Serk@nl@nd 18:23, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia Asian Ambassador[edit]

Hello AddisWang. I read your message "One Week Left!" and I have a question about Wikipedia Asian Ambassadors. You wrote that "For some Wikipedias, we are also honoring the second greatest contributor as an ambassador". The french Wikipedia has few participants, but there are three participants who will certainly reach 30 articles each. Of course, there will be a first, a second and a third, but as they are really close, is it possible to do something for the three of them ? Would it be a podium with medals (gold, silver and bronze) ? Or will it be only one french Wikipedia Asian Ambassador ? Thank you very much for your answer. --Eponimm (talk) 14:16, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your point of view. Do you agree if I act this way : a podium with the three best participants; the winner will receive the title of asian ambassador and the package included; the second, as you said, will win the same, and the third will only have an additional postcard. This way, the final days will be decisive and the competition intensive as the three best participants are today really close. Are you ok with my proposal ? --Eponimm (talk) 18:51, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi, how does one report contributions towards the Asian month? --BooysenN (talk) 14:09, 26 November 2015 (UTC)

@BooysenN:You can do that on each language version of Wikipedia.

Translation[edit]

As per the message "One Week Left!", I have translated for Tamil Wiki, and will be sent via Tamil Wikipedia. --AntanO 03:48, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

The message has been sent to all ta.wiki participants. --AntanO 06:33, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

formatting[edit]

Hi Addis,

Since the past few days I've been following this format on Urdu Wikipedia's Asian Month:

Barnstar for WAM[edit]

The barnstar in question

Hi, I have created a barnstar for the Asian month participants, feel free to use it. If you choose to use another barnstar, please let me know. Ле Лой (talk) 02:55, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

Bashkortostan articles[edit]

Hello AddisWang. Regarding your last message I have a question about Bashkortostan articles. In all the articles worked during the contest in the french Wikipedia, only one is related to Bashkortostan : Çäkçäk. It's a popular and traditional sweet in Bashkortostan. Does that count? Thank you for your help. --Eponimm (talk) 16:39, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

Ok! Thank you for your quick answer. --Eponimm (talk) 16:51, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

Hello AddisWang. In the Qualified Editors page, how do you want to be notified about my third best participant, who, as we discussed, will have a second postcard for his great contribution (49 articles!) but who won't be an ambassador ? With a letter of the alphabet ? With a symbol like " * " ? Thank you in advance! --Eponimm (talk) 09:45, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

Postcard vs Country[edit]

... each participant who creates at least five articles that fulfill the criteria will receive a special designed Wikipedia postcard from other participating countries. So, if a participant creates more than 10 articles for different countries, which country postcard the participant could receives. I understand a participant could receive only one postcard regardless of number of article creation. I am not sure whether you have discussed this issues earlier. Is so, point me to the link. --AntanO 04:56, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

Asiatiese Maand[edit]

Yes, I was intending to do so. I tried to create Asian-related items on Afwp. Do let me know if any passed the minimum requirements. --BooysenN (talk) 19:42, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

What future IdeaLab campaigns would you like to see?[edit]

Wikipedia Asian Month in sq.wikipedia[edit]

Hello AddisWang,

I read your message in my talk page but hadn't enough time to response, (we had an event in our local community). About Wikipedia Asian Month, in the beginning, I didn't know that this project was also open for other communities outside Asia, therefore we started very late sq.wiki, in which I helped as much as I could. I hope that next time our wiki to participate from the start and contribute more. I think projects like this bring together more wiki communities. Best Regards.--Liridon (talk) 12:41, 13 December 2015 (UTC)

@Jogi don:The mailing address refers to the physical address not a email address. You may fill one more time and I will delete the previous one.--AddisWang (talk) 19:18, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

@Jogi don:We usually don't put phone number on postcard.--AddisWang (talk) 14:33, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

@AddisWang:,Okay dear

Final Stage[edit]

Hello AddisWang! I have new questions relative to your last message :

  1. Will the postcard be in paper or electronic ?
  2. What do you call "distribution"? I gave the survey link to the qualified participants but I have no way to know if they have answered. Do I have to control it ?
  3. Who will distribute the barnstar? Me ? Where can I find it?

Thank you very much for your answer. --Eponimm (talk) 12:27, 13 January 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia Asian Ambassador English Wikipedia[edit]

Why the long delay in declaring the Asia Month Ambassador on English Wikipedia? or have you already done so?--Nvvchar (talk) 16:36, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

We have not announced it since that is our final stage, currently working on address collection. But you can find ambassador on all Wikipedia at here. Thanks for you great job in EnWp.--AddisWang (talk) 19:20, 15 January 2016 (UTC)

Address[edit]

Hey Addis, I have just one question. I've participated at the WAM in two languages and they are English and Bengali. I've got address collection message in both wikis. My question is what'll I do in the language section? Thanks in advance. --Pratyya (Hello!) 14:35, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
