Wikimedia Indigenous Languages
- Good day, the mailing list has been created for WIL and you are welcome to join: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, Amqui (talk) 18:23, 1 September 2012 (UTC)
I like the link you just added for the NEH and NSF grant awards, it contains a list of serious people involved in recording and documenting endangered languages. Would be nice if we could contact at least some of them and convince them to release their documentation in a free license. That may be something we can look at through Wikimedia Indigenous Languages, what do you think ? Amqui (talk) 04:32, 29 August 2012 (UTC)
- Yes, this sounds like something the developers at the Foundation would want to be involved with. Djembayz (talk)

Changes to WMDE's proposal to the FDC
Hi, User:Djembayz: Thanks a lot for taking the time to review WMDE's FDC proposal so carefully. We keep a close lock on changes to the proposal after the proposal deadline, and so while I think your edits were good, I've reverted them since only the entity is allowed to request changes and all of those changes have to be approved by Staff if they are made after that deadline. We know this is quite different from the usual wiki process, so I wanted to post a note to you here to let you know the reason for the revert and at the same time to appreciate your efforts.

Upcoming IdeaLab Events: IEG Proposal Clinics
Barnstar and a request for feedback
|Thank you for commenting on Individual Engagement Grant proposals during this recent round! We really appreciate that you took the time to share your thoughts.
To help us improve the IEG program for future participants, would you mind taking this quick 3-question survey?
Thanks again for your help,
Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decitions
The Wikimedia Foundation recently created a new feature, "superprotect" status. The purpose is to prevent pages from being edited by elected administrators -- but permitting WMF staff to edit them. It has been put to use in only one case: to protect the deployment of the Media Viewer software on German Wikipedia, in defiance of a clear decision of that community to disable the feature by default, unless users decide to enable it.
If you oppose these actions, please add your name to this letter. If you know non-Wikimedians who support our vision for the free sharing of knowledge, and would like to add their names to the list, please ask them to sign an identical version of the letter on change.org.
Can I rename Category:Gender_gap_grant_ideas?
Hi Djembayz. Thanks for creating Category:Gender_gap_grant_ideas. It is very useful for the upcoming Inspire campaign to have all the existing gender-gap-related ideas already categorized. I hadn't noticed that you had done this, and I just created Category:IdeaLab/Ideas/Gender_gap to serve the same purpose. Would it be okay with you if I re-direct your category there? I have two motivations: 1) perpetuate my existing naming scheme to make life easier for my bots, templates, and gadgets; and 2)make sure people know that IdeaLab ideas aren't grant proposals. Let me know if you have any concerns with this proposal, and thanks again for going through the existing ideas and categorizing them. Cheers, Jmorgan (WMF) (talk) 01:19, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
