feedback for Wikidata mockups[edit]

Hey :)

You indicated that you'd like to help with the interwiki link phase of Wikidata. We're currently looking for feedback on mockups about linking on the Wikipedias. In case you have not seen them yet it'd be great if you could have a look and tell me what you think.

Cheers --Lydia Pintscher (WMDE) (talk) 15:09, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for telling me about it Lydia. I am taking at look at it now. --Discott (talk) 16:01, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Questions for FDC candidates[edit]

Hi :-) thank you for putting yourself forward for the FDC. I want to draw your attention to the list of questions that people can answer to help the Board of Trustees learn more about the people volunteering for the committee. [1] Look forward to seeing your answers. Sydney Poore/FloNight (talk) 21:51, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

Your comments are invited on four current FDC proposals[edit]

Hello! As you may know, we've opened the community review period for the current funding round in the Funds Dissemination Committee process. I noticed that in the past you expressed interest in the FDC, since you were a nominee for the committee. I'd like to invite you to review the 4 proposals (totaling $1.3 million USD) that were submitted to the FDC, and to ask questions and share comments about those proposals. You can help to ensure that they have high potential for impact regarding the movement's goals. The FDC especially values comments by community members and will take them into account when they prepare their recommendations. Let me know if you have any questions! --Katy Love, Senior Program Officer, Funds Dissemination Committee, Wikimedia Foundation, 22:36, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

SWOT[edit]

Hey Douglas, I see you have been working on a similar document like Wikimania_2015_bids/Cape_Town/SWOT. What's your proposal to merge these two pages? MADe (talk) 19:11, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

I Maarten, nice work. I think I will merge it into our bid tomorrow. Lets chat about it some more at our next meeting this Wednesday.--Discott (talk) 20:36, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Volunteering for Grants:IEG/Motivational and educational video to introduce Wikimedia[edit]

Hello, thanks for volunteering for this project. What is it that you are volunteering to do? (: --Pine 19:52, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi Pine, I am not sure. However I can help I guess. We do a number of edit-a-thons so I get the opportunity to show people how to start editing. I guess I could test out the videos to see how informative others might find them? --Discott (talk) 07:23, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
I have a couple of specific ideas for how you can help. First, would you be willing to read the script outline and leave any comments on this talk page? Second, would you be willing to attend an IRC office hour, and help with scheduling by following the request here to fill out a Doodle? Thanks! --Pine 18:35, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

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)

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,

I'm interested in hearing your experience during the campaign, so if you're able, I invite you to complete this brief survey to describe how you contributed to the campaign and how you felt about participating.
