Note on signatures[edit]

Just a note, since I just added the timestamp to a number of your comments on various talk pages: Using four tildes (~~~~) is almost always better, since not only does this provide information about the time a comment was written, their absence also breaks scripts and gadgets enhancing discussions (such as c:COM:Convenient Discussions and mw:DiscussionTools) by preventing them from recognising the end of a comment. Thanks. ~~~~

We are in the process of cleaning up the articles with errors resulting from the campaign and we kindly request your help with this. Please help with cleanup and consider engaging experienced members of your community in the cleanup.

#Shesaid campaign Nigeria[edit]

Wiki Loves Women/SheSaid

Hi,

I know the #Shesaid campaign is next month and I an thinking of a "Nigerian page of the initiative" on the English Wiki Quotes. New editors will be recruited especially people interested in filling the gender gap on Nigerian content. I already saw the Igbo redlist [Wq/ig/Wikiquote:SheSaid/Redlists]. (Igbo is a local language in Nigeria). I want to do a Nigerian campaign. What do you think? Please do let me know ways this can come into light. 

I would love to hear your opinion. Prithee P (talk) 08:31, 22 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hello Prithee. Glad to hear from you !

I think you would be great in getting in touch with User:Tochiprecious on the topic. She will run some activities in Nigeria (but I have no idea if you both live in the same geographical area or very much apart from one another).

At the personal level, I am not sure if it might not give you too much work, but that's pretty much up to you in fact. I'll be happy to support you if you decide to do a Nigerian campaign. It would be great. Also ,please note the redlink page for the English wikiquote here : w:en:Wikiquote:SheSaid/RedLists.

What do you think Tochi ? Interesting in working with Prithee to get that Nigerian campaign of the ground ? Anthere (talk) 14:08, 22 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hi User:Anthere it would really be interesting working on it in Nigeria. We already got talking and working towards it.

Regards --Tochiprecious (talk) 14:49, 22 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Perfect ! Anthere (talk) 19:44, 22 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

#SheSaidNigeria[edit]

Concerning the #Shesaid Nigeria campaign I mentioned earlier this month, I already applied for an individual grant and hopefully will run it later this month. I have added a Nigerian section to the red list and hopefully will add more. I hope this project is a success. Many regards, Precious Prithee P (talk) 19:42, 1 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Campaigns Product Update #2[edit]

Hello Campaigns Product Newsletter subscribers! We are excited to share our updates:

  • Request for Feedback: We have shared our project principles, wireframes for the desktop version, and open questions for you about the team’s event registration project. See the latest status updates here.
Wireframes are design tools that imagine the future interface of the software. We haven’t built anything yet. We need your feedback on these designs so that we can make better product decisions. You can give feedback on the talk page regarding the design and features of the wireframes. We would love to hear your comments to help us establish the next necessary steps for the project.
Please share with us your feedback!
  • Presentations: The Campaign Product team participated in WikiArabia 2021 and WikiConference North America 2021 to give a brief introduction on how the team works. Senior Program Strategist Alex Stinson gave an overview about campaigns and how we can scale the organizing experience within the Movement. Senior Product Manager Ilana Fried gave an introduction about the Product Team and the project wireframes of the first campaign software solution: the on-wiki registration tool. View the recorded presentation here.
  • Team update: We have hired our first team engineer, JCarvalho and our campaign organizing fellow, IBrazal. Newsletter updates will be done by IBrazal and she will be coordinating with you! We hope to have the rest of the engineering team onboard soon! For those of who missed the last Campaign Office Hour, you may watch the recording to know more about the Campaign Product Team.

What is next?

Testers Needed! We will be partnering with YUX, a design research agency, to learn how our team can improve the experience of Wikimedia campaign organizers and participants in Africa. For this reason, we are looking for community members who are willing to be part of the rapid testing sessions. Preferably, we want organizers and editors who have worked in an African context. If you would like to participate in testing, please email ibrazal-ctr@wikimedia.org.
Upcoming Conferences. Wiki Indaba 2021. This year, the conference will be held virtually on November 5-7, 2021 with the theme "Rethink + Reset : Visions of the future". Read more about the conference here or register to join the event. We will be presenting the registration features on Sunday November 7.
We will also be attending Wikimedia CEE Online Meeting 2021, which will be held virtually again this year on November 5-7, 2021. We will be presenting the registration tool on November 6 as part of our communication and sharing process.
Translation Support. We are also beginning to translate the updates on Registration. If you think your language community would benefit from updates, please translate here.


Invite other organizers to subscribe to this newsletter for updates!

Response the question asked on NCPUG project page on Wiki Loves Africa.[edit]

Hello :Anthere I hope this message finds you well.

In regard to the question you asked on endorsement section of the project page of Nigerian Commons Photographers Usergroup (NCPUG). [1]


On wiki loves Africa photowalk project. The project belong to the NCPUG and it's for the whole Nigerian community.

And the application comes as a result of the call for the application,

I happens to attend the meeting and we discussed with the user Isla, and we explained to her about our idea of photowalk and she said is a good idea we can proceed.

I do hope this answe your question, Thanks, best regards.Musa Vacho77 (talk) 09:05, 28 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

All right. Thank you for the clarification Anthere (talk)

How we will see unregistered users[edit]

Hi!

You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Policy for new logos[edit]

Hello Anthere, I just noticed that, some years ago, in the new section: Policy for new logos, you had added an statement: "I (Jimbo) would like to generally discourage this practice,...". I see you were a member of Board of Trustees and the founder of Wikimedia France, So I think it should be the same Jimbo (the founder) that is referenced here. If so, I am interested to know more about the context of that information you reported; for example if it was a meeting or a previous discussions with him somewhere else? (if it happens that you still have that information available at hand). Thanks a lot. Alfa80 (talk) 21:42, 31 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hello. You are speaking of something discussed... 17 years ago... I wish I had such a great memory. But given the page updated, and the reference to Jimbo, I expect this was the result of a discussion between Angela (on the board as well), Jimmy and myself. I’d say that the context... is the use of various funny logo variations during Christmas, which created some unstir and complains. Our board meetings back then were mostly hosted on IRC, no real notes that I could find back. But I usually was the one who documented publicly our decisions. Anthere (talk) 22:32, 31 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Wow, great memory! thanks a lot. It really helped me improve my understanding about that point of view.Alfa80 (talk) 10:41, 1 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Further context for the fun. It is in French, but you will probably get the sense of that vote, if not enjoy the picts : https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipédia:Sondage/Logo Anthere (talk) 11:24, 1 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks. I enjoyed the pics a lot, especially the "Fête des Travailleurs" and the "Halloween". Alfa80 (talk) 18:10, 7 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Campaigns Product Update #3[edit]

Hello Campaigns Product Newsletter subscribers!

We are excited to share our updates:

  • Proposal to create new namespaces: We have proposed to create two namespaces, which are “Event” and “Event talk.” This way, we can easily create an Event Center that pulls data from event pages. This Event Center may include tools to create event pages with registration support, a calendar of events, and event statistics, among other features. More importantly, the Event Center will highlight organizing as an essential part of the Wikimedia movement. Please give us feedback on Phabricator or Meta about our proposal to create two new namespaces.
  • Engineering updates: We are excited that we have finished hiring for our engineering team! Three engineers and an engineering manager have joined our team since our last update. In the last few months, they have conducted technical planning and launched the building phase of the project. They are now building the registration tool. You can see the updated team on meta.
  • Design updates: We conducted usability tests with a small group of testers for early feedback on the desktop wireframes. After collecting this feedback, we have developed a new version for desktop wireframes, which will be ready to share in the next few weeks. These desktop wireframes display the user flow of two experiences: one for organizers who want to add registration to their event pages, and another for participants who want to register for an event. Additionally, the design team is also currently working on the first version of mobile wireframes, which will be shared during the next office hour.
1. View the latest desktop wireframes in Figma for Campaign Organizer Prototype and Participant Registration Prototype.
2. Leave us some feedback on the desktop wireframes. Note that we haven’t posted the newest version of the desktop wireframes on the project page yet, but we will soon (and you can feel free to add feedback on any version you have seen).
  • Ambassador updates: Three product ambassadors for the Arabic, French and Swahili communities have now joined our team! They will help us collect feedback from Wikimedia communities about the project and understand the needs of organizers, through gathering first-hand information. These ambassadors are immersed as actual members of these communities, so they will also help us identify the needs of the organizers in our pilot communities. The ambassadors are: M. Bachounda for Arabic communities, Georges Fodouop for French communities, and Antoni Mtavangu for Swahili communities.

What is next?

Next Office Hour: We will be holding an office hour on March 31, 2022 at 15:00 UTC, which will be conducted via Zoom. We invite everyone to attend, and we really hope to see you! The focus will be on the Registration Tool. The team will also be providing community updates on the usability test findings and design highlights for the wireframes. We will also share our current Project timeline and answer any questions you may have. Join us and share your thoughts on these developments!
In a few months, we are expecting to have the early testable version of the tool. By then, the team will be doing the first round of general testing and gathering feedback. We are looking forward to adding more features on the tool such as communication support, potentially by the end of this year. If you know other organizers that might be interested in following these developments, please recommend that they subscribe to the newsletter. We want to receive as much feedback as we can.

Thank you!

Re:[edit]

Hi Anthere! Love to share with the group in any manner that can be pleasant for everyone in the UG. I have read the existing work in the group and find it wonderful. Some time ago I tried an offline project in the Mexican state of Chiapas but it was not possible to carry it out a that moment. Hopefully, regardless of the Board election, I can learn more about this so I can work on it in my country. Best,--ProtoplasmaKid (talk) 19:07, 18 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
