Why?[edit]

Hi! Could you please explain me why you erased from the list some articles about Estonian politicians? I though that 21 March edition was the final list so the last days I' ve created in Greek language articles about items that you erased (p.e. Eenpalu). --Pavlos1988 (talk) 18:43, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

@Pavlos1988: Hi! Some of the lists are still too long, sorry about the confusion. :-( I trimmed the list down to the required 100 articles (at least in 8 categories, still have to check science and culture), but if the Estonians feel somewhat hard done by the list, they can undo the changes and select different ones (User:Лорд Бъмбъри checked with them beforehand if it was ok to cut down the lists in general). Your articles still count for CEE Spring, they just don't show up in the lists? Or does this pose a problem? Best, Braveheart (talk) 18:51, 27 March 2017 (UTC)


First of all thank you for the quick response! :) I'm just worried about the fact that according to Greek page about CEE only listed articles are counted, so what will happen if an article is no more part of the list? Thanks! --Pavlos1988 (talk) 19:00, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

@Pavlos1988: Hm, that's unfortunate - maybe @Badseed: can offer a solution for this problem? I would suggest to count everything on the original list, even for future purposes. But that might be too confusing for the local organisers? Braveheart (talk) 19:05, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

I understand but on the other hand this is confusing for me too. The last days I didn't just translated these articles from English to Greek but I also did research in order to make them as better as possible. If you check them you will see that p.e. the Greek article about Johannes Vares is much more detailed than the English one. --Pavlos1988 (talk) 19:17, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

I'm not quite sure why the Greek competition is limited to the article lists, but in my opinion all articles created using the list originally posted on March 21st should be fine. Since you're using the CEE Template anyway, the organisers should still be able to keep track, but that's up to them. Braveheart (talk) 21:01, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
@Pavlos1988: Can you please check with your local organisers as to how they want to deal with this problem? Braveheart (talk) 12:42, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

Yeap! --Pavlos1988 (talk) 16:43, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

Dear @Braveheart: We are going to include these articles by Pavlos1988 in his score. But please note that the timeline for the countries isn't mandatory and/or some contestants may have already started working on articles about, say, Armenia which is at the end of May (like Pavlos1988 did with the articles about Estonia, before it came in schedule). Changing the lists now would leave them in uncertainty and waste any preparatory research or writing/translation they have already done. Moreover there isn't a real reason to shorten the lists, since a) the inernational organizers are fine with >100 lists and b) really good, long articles for the contest are a little hard to find, even on the longer lists. So it's better not to have any more changes to the lists now. Thank you! - Badseed (talk) 00:27, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

Wikimedia CEE Spring 2018/Structure/Austria[edit]

Hello! Last year Russian users wrote all the articles from the Austrian list. Could you please add there some articles without Russian interwiki links? --Andreykor (talk) 18:28, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

@Andreykor: Yes, sorry for the confusion, the list is a copy of 2017, we'll change it once we know what we want to do :-) Best, Braveheart (talk) 18:59, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

CEE Bosnia and Sorbian lists[edit]

Hi! Wikimedia CEE Spring 2018/Structure/Bosnia and Herzegovina and Wikimedia CEE Spring 2018/Structure/Sorbian pages seem to be ready but not included in the todo list Template:Wikimedia CEE Spring 2018 Article Lists by Country. Why is that? Thanks. --Lomogorov (talk) 04:01, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

@Lomogorov: Both communities haven't established a local contest yet, so we still need to wait for them to do that :-) Best, Braveheart (talk) 08:09, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

The Community Wishlist Survey[edit]

Hi,

You get this message because you’ve previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey. I just wanted to let you know that this year’s survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until 11 November: Community Wishlist Survey 2019.

You can vote from November 16 to November 30. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won’t send out a separate reminder to you about that. /Johan (WMF) 11:24, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

Wrong votes for AffCom[edit]

Ehm... sorry, I clicked on the wrong link apparently. Sannita - not just another it.wiki sysop 21:13, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

@Sannita: Glad you noticed it, wondered if you would be notified by my revert :-) And yes, it's a bit confusing and by the way: it's not an election, AffCom itself decides who joins. Best, Braveheart (talk) 22:01, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
