Request for Wikimedia Conference 2019[edit]

Hi Cornelius, I would like to request that at WMCON 2019 that there be a session about creating standards for financial transparency and financial reporting requirements for Wikimedia organizations. I would like to participate in that discussion, preferably in person but also remotely if I do not attend the conference in person. Thanks! --Pine 19:44, 10 August 2018 (UTC)

Dear Pine;
thanks for your message. It's good to hear that you are interested in the program of the next conference. However, I cannot give you any guarantee that such a session will be scheduled, mainly for two reasons: a) The conference will change its format, in the future, the program will be designed according to the Movement Strategy process. b) As in 2017 in 2018 for the Movement Strategy track, we will use, presumably, an open space format for this conference. That means sessions can neither be "requested" in advance, nor proposed by me. Furthermore, as you know from past conferences, a remote attendance is not and will not be possible. Nevertheless, I'll keep you updated via the regular channels. Best regards, --Cornelius Kibelka (WMDE) (talk) 23:46, 15 August 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)

  • The info portal on Structured Commons now includes a section on GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums).
  • We are currently planning the first GLAM pilot projects that will use structured data on Wikimedia Commons. One project has already started: the Swedish Heritage Board researches and develops a prototype tool to provide improved metadata (translations, data additions...) from Wikimedia Commons back to the source institution. Read the project brief.
  • The documentation for batch uploads of files to Wikimedia Commons will be improved in 2019, as part of preparing for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons. To prepare, the GLAM team at the Wikimedia Foundation wants to understand better which types of documentation you already use, and how you like to learn new GLAM-Wiki skills and knowledge. Fill in a short survey to provide input!
Stay up to date!

Captions in January[edit]

The previous message from today says captions will be released in November in the text. January is the correct month. My apologies for the potential confusion. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 20:43, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - file captions coming this week (January 2019)[edit]

My apologies if this is a duplicate message for you, it is being sent to multiple lists which you may be signed up for.

Hi all, following up on last month's announcement...

Multilingual file captions will be released this week, on either Wednesday, 9 January or Thursday, 10 January 2019. Captions are a feature to add short, translatable descriptions to files. Here's some links you might want to look follow before the release, if you haven't already:

  1. Read over the help page for using captions - I wrote the page on mediawiki.org because captions are available for any MediaWiki user, feel free to host/modify a copy of the page here on Commons.
  2. Test out using captions on Beta Commons.
  3. Leave feedback about the test on the captions test talk page, if you have anything you'd like to say prior to release.

Additionally, there will be an IRC office hour on Thursday, 10 January with the Structured Data team to talk about file captions, as well as anything else the community may be interested in. Date/time conversion, as well as a link to join, are on Meta.

Thanks for your time, I look forward to seeing those who can make it to the IRC office hour on Thursday. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:09, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Passing by[edit]

Hi! Happened to notice Wikimedia_Summit_2019/Program#7._Progress_check-in - it seems it should be point 6 per the schedule underneath? Not sure though. :) --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 15:08, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

Indee, thank you, Erica! --Cornelius Kibelka (WMDE) (talk) 15:25, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
