Wikimedia Conference 2013[edit]

Hi Daniel. Can I point you to m:Talk:WikiProject Med#Chapters Meeting 2013? Two places at this year's conference have been offered to WikiProject Med board members. Ocaasi has applied for a scholarship. Registration closes on 10 March, and I think the board should discuss attendance, and decide who should represent us before then. Could you please add your thoughts to the above-linked discussion. --Anthonyhcole (talk) 16:42, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Hadn't filled that in because I didn't have experience with the program back then. Next time, I will. -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 07:52, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Reusing the project's materials in Germany and Austria[edit]

dear Daniel. we plan to have the documentation ready by April and it would be great to present it also within your project. I think it is possible to have everything ready on time, and I think I can speak on behalf of everybody involved by saying thank you for the great invitation. I include it into out plan to make sure it is properly acknowledged and please let me know if you need specific formats or if you have any particular requirements (the video is expected to be in French - actually we are planning a series of 3 short videos but the proper plan will be ready at the end of December; I think we can make subtitles in English or other languages - maybe we can ask also the support of the community; I think we can also have a text ready to contextualize it - same issue for the translation). thanks again! great to cross with your work. un abbraccio --iopensa (talk) 08:35, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

OK, thanks. We'll thus plan our exhibit without your video, but try to remain flexible enough to get it in at the last moment. Please keep me posted. -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 07:54, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for contributing to discussions on so many IEG proposals this round, Daniel! We appreciated having your thoughts :) Hope you'll continue to participate in the future! Siko (WMF) (talk) 01:09, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, Siko. I like this scheme very much and keep pointing it out to scholarly funders as an example for how project funding could be organized in the open. I will thus continue to check in, and when I see something to comment on, it's just a matter of time whether and when I'll do it. -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 07:58, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Video Wikipedia - what is about produced in Douala[edit]

dear Daniel, the idea of presenting the video produced in Douala in the ship exhibition is great and we would be really delighted to provide you the video. On the other hand, I'm worried that the video will probably not be ready on time. The production seems to be moving to be finalized by the end of April because there is still some discussion on which is the best proposal to select and produce. i don't think it is a good idea to put too much pressure on the team right now; i think it is really valuable that the concept is selected and discussed properly and with enough time. I am really sorry to be unable to guarantee the delivery on time. please consider that we really liked your invitation and we really think it is a great project. please let me know if in the future there might be other chances to contribute to presentations and we certainly inform you about the production as soon it is ready. my very warm regards, --iopensa (talk) 10:06, 15 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the note, and good luck with finalizing the video! -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 02:19, 22 March 2014 (UTC)

Barnstar and a request for feedback[edit]

Videos für Wikipedia-Artikel: Workshops und Wettbewerb[edit]

Lieber Daniel,

Vwa logo svg

über deinen tollen "Open Access Media Importer" bin ich auf dich gestoßen. Ich möchte dich auf das Projekt „Videos für Wikipedia-Artikel“ aufmerksam machen. Wir veranstalten einen Video-Wettbewerb, anlässlich des Wissenschaftsjahres 2014 zum Thema „Digitale Gesellschaft“. Für diejenigen, die Interesse haben, aber sich mit Videoproduktion noch nicht auskennen bzw. wenn sie Video-Kenntnisse haben, diese teilen möchten, veranstalten wir Workshops. Nicht zuletzt wollen wir mit dem Projekt auch eine Diskussion darüber anstoßen, wie Videos für Wikipedia-Artikel aussehen sollen, welche Bildsprache der Wikipedia angemessen ist. Vielleicht hast du ja Lust, auch einmal ein Video zu produzieren oder dich an der Diskussion zu beteiligen?! Wir freuen uns über rege Beteiligung und Input an Ideen.
Viele Grüße, ----ALi (VWA) (talk) 08:28, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Danke fuer die Erinnerung an dieses schoene Projekt. Interessiert bin ich auf jeden Fall, mehr lernen ueber Video-Produktionen wuerd ich auch gern, und Ideen dazu hab ich. Eine Teilnahme an den Workshops ist aber zeitlich schwierig. -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 13:00, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
Hallo Daniel, entschuldige die lange Reaktionszeit! Schön, dass Dir unser Projekt gefällt! Was sind denn das für Ideen? Es würde uns jedenfalls freuen, wenn Du Zeit findest - beim Wettbewerb kann man aber natürlich auch mitmachen, ohne zu den Workshops zu kommen. Schöne Grüße, --ALi (VWA) (talk) 17:26, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Die Ideen drehen sich darum, Videos rund um WikiProject Open Access zu machen, seien es Animationen (Beispiel) oder Videoaufnahmen (siehe auch hier). -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 00:41, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Ebola translation task force (draft)[edit]

Hi! I started an Ebola translation task force (draft) to hopefully quickly get some Ebola related translations in local African languages. I'd love to see your input (and edits) Guaka (talk) 12:10, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the note. I do not see how I can help at the moment, but I will keep it in mind. -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 01:30, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

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

Hi! Today Sunday 17 May 2015 there will be a User Groups meet-up at 14h at room E. If you are interested, please join, the main topics to be discussed is the relationship between WMF and user groups, and diaspora user groups as described on Wikimedia diaspora organisations. If you are interested, please join! Thanks. --Micru (talk) 08:31, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Freedom of Panorama 2015 EVA GESAC#The alleged loss of revenue[edit]

I think it should be noted that any revenue from photographs of 3D works is negligible compared to the fee the artist receive for the work itself. I think the mentioned 3-6 million Euro loss mentioned for all of France seems like a minute amount compared to how much money revolves around the industry.

It should perhaps also be noted that these artist societies tend to charge the general public indirectly through w:Private copying levy etc as well as registration etc. fees to the artists/architects. After everyone gets their cut, the actual people who do the work do not receive much of it probably.

-- とある白い猫 chi? 11:26, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

I basically share your view here but don't know what you want me to do about it. FOP is not an area I know very well — I read that page to learn a bit more and just made a few edits to it in the process. -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 02:01, 5 July 2015 (UTC)

IEG Proposals[edit]

Hi Daniel. I have submitted two proposals namely Wikipedia Takes Rinconada and Run for Free Knowledge. For your comments and endorsement. Thank you very much. --Filipinayzd (talk) 03:31, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

OAMI[edit]

FYI, the AUTH Library on the occasion of Open Access Week 2015 organized a mini conference with the title "Open Access in practice". I was invited to talk about Open Access and Wikipedia, where I mentioned Open Access Media Importer and the plans and possibilities for Wikisource and Wikidata. One of the professors expressed his enthusiasm, while he couldn't believe that it was technically possible. :-) --Geraki TL 15:10, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

Nice to hear, Geraki — can you put me in touch with them? Thanks! -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 07:22, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

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

IdeaLab logo dark orange.png

Hi there,

I’m Jethro, and I’m seeking your help in deciding topics for new IdeaLab campaigns that could be run starting next year. These campaigns aim to bring in proposals and solutions from communities that address a need or problem in Wikimedia projects. I'm interested in hearing your preferences and ideas for campaign topics!

Here’s how to participate:

Take care,

I JethroBT (WMF), Community Resources, Wikimedia Foundation. 03:34, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

Future IdeaLab Campaigns results[edit]

IdeaLab badge 1.png

Last December, I invited you to help determine future ideaLab campaigns by submitting and voting on different possible topics. I'm happy to announce the results of your participation, and encourage you to review them and our next steps for implementing those campaigns this year. Thank you to everyone who volunteered time to participate and submit ideas.

With great thanks,

Inspire Campaign on content curation & review[edit]

WPCube.png

I've recently launched an Inspire Campaign to encourage new ideas focusing on content review and curation in Wikimedia projects. Wikimedia volunteers collaboratively manage vast repositories of knowledge, and we’re looking for your ideas about how to manage that knowledge to make it more meaningful and accessible. We invite you to participate and submit ideas, so please get involved today! The campaign runs until March 28th.

All proposals are welcome - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is welcome - your skills and experience can help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign to improve review and curation tasks so that we can make our content more meaningful and accessible! I JethroBT (WMF) 05:39, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

Open Call for Individual Engagement Grants[edit]

IEG barnstar 2.png

Greetings! The Individual Engagement Grants (IEG) program is accepting proposals until April 12th to fund new tools, research, outreach efforts, and other experiments that enhance the work of Wikimedia volunteers. Whether you need a small or large amount of funds (up to $30,000 USD), IEGs can support you and your team’s project development time in addition to project expenses such as materials, travel, and rental space.

With thanks, I JethroBT (WMF), Community Resources 15:56, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for commenting on my IEG proposal[edit]

Hey Daniel, thanks for commenting on my IEG proposal. It was all very helpful. I've addressed some of your initial comments as best I can right now, and I will continue to work on them. I realize I'm not the first person to think about article revision histories as trees; I've still got a lot to learn about what people have discovered so far. Thank you for drawing my attention to some of the more glaring issues with my proposal. -- Evoapps (talk) 18:56, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

WikiCite 2016[edit]

Hi Daniel, Just wanted to say I'm happy to see there will be someone from Wiki Project Med at this event. It has huge potential to improve article quality and facilitate their translation. I wish I could have made it there myself, but likely would not have been all that useful anyhow. If I might suggest a line of discussion, it would seem to be valuable to be able to somehow link to or harvest PubMed's <article type> and <vernacular title> fields. The former would support better identification of secondary sources, while the latter is very helpful when searching for the fulltext original in other catalogues. LeadSongDog (talk) 20:21, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Thanks! I think both would fit into Wikidata, from where they could be used the way you indicated. Yes, having the original title (as well as journal title, author names etc.) would be useful. -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 17:17, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia OAbot at WikiCite[edit]

Hi Daniel! We have a proposition for WikiCite: the Wikipedia OAbot :-) We'd love to have you on board! Best, Pintoch (talk) 21:01, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Thanks. I've put in a proposal myself, so don't know yet how things will play out. But certainly happy to discuss what we could do together. -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 00:30, 21 May 2016 (UTC)

Participate in the Inspire Campaign and help address harassment![edit]

NounProject Leaves.png

Through June, we’re organizing an Inspire Campaign to encourage and support new ideas focusing on addressing harassment toward Wikimedia contributors. The 2015 Harassment Survey has shown evidence that harassment in various forms - name calling, threats, discrimination, stalking, and impersonation, among others - is pervasive. Available methods and systems to deal with harassment are also considered to be ineffective. These behaviors are clearly harmful, and in addition, many individuals who experience or witness harassment participate less in Wikimedia projects or stop contributing entirely.

Proposals in any language are welcome during the campaign - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is appreciated, and collaboration is encouraged - your skills and experience may help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign so that we can work together to develop ideas around this important and difficult issue. With thanks,

2016 Community Wishlist Survey[edit]

Hi,

You’re getting this message because you participated in the 2015 Community Wishlist Survey and we want to make sure you don't miss it this year – or at least can make the conscious choice to ignore if it you want to. The 2015 survey decided what the Community Tech team should work on during 2016. It was also the focus of Wikimedia hackathons and work by other developers. You can see the status of wishes from the 2015 wishlist at 2015 Community Wishlist Survey/Results.

The 2016 Community Wishlist Survey is now open for wishes. You can create proposals until November 20. You will be able to vote on which wishes you think are best or most important between November 28 and December 12. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 11:17, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia Library User Group is being renamed![edit]

Hello! In the past few months, the Wikipedia Library User Group has been undergoing some major planning and developments. We just finished our very first open call with the user group members, which was a great success (see the meeting minutes). If you joined us during the meeting, we’d like to thank you for your interest. If not, not to worry, we have lots of things planned for the user group in which you can participate.

This message is to inform you that based on the input received from the user group members and the founding members, it was agreed that the Wikipedia Library User Group’s name be reconsidered by a voting process. As a valued member of the user group, we’d like to invite you to vote on the list of potential names. You can vote by following this link. The poll will run for a timeframe of two weeks.

Questions about job posting, "Wikimedian in Residence position at University of Virginia"[edit]

On the Wikidata mailing list you posted a notice for a Wikimedian in Residence job at the University of Virginia. You said that anyone with questions should post on your talk page.

I have forwarded the notice around and someone asked me when you expect to close the listing. Do you expect to stop accepting additional applications before the end of November? Thanks. Blue Rasberry (talk) 00:04, 22 November 2017 (UTC)

The listing will be closed once the position is filled. This is not the case yet, but review of applications has started. -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 04:14, 22 November 2017 (UTC)
