Kudos for Transparancy


Eekim, last night first 'office hours' in IRC was great. I wish you good luck with staging such meetings with people who do not speak english, like many Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, and maybe a billion other people on the planet. On your user page I found a link to the task scheduling tool Chandler you happen to use. I've signed up, I've installed the desktop. Looks like an amazing tool. And now for thousands compliments for setting up such an open and transparant task scheduling for this collaborative strategy process.

Wikimedia Conferentie 2009 will be held early November. That will be the fifth conference in the Netherlands, attracting 100 to 150 participants. I had in my mind to help organize three open discussion meetings about reach, participation and quality. In the chat last night you projected three phases in the process, and the end of the first phase in october. So I entirely reopen this planning for this part of WCN 2009. Early november 2009 a hundred plus people will come to a conference in the Netherlands and talk and discuss things about Wikimedia, its projects, licenses, education etc. Given the timeline of the strategy process what kind of discussions can best be staged then, to grasp the opportunity to involve the conference participants?

Thanks for your feedback, Dedalus! I expect the IRC office hours that Philippe and I plan on keeping will be in English, simply because if they're not, we won't be able to answer people's questions! Beyond that, I hope that we'll be able to support interactions in as many languages as possible. My current thinking for how to do this is as follows.
  • Be intentional about Wiki translations. When we post requests for proposals and participations, make sure that we do it in multiple languages, and make sure that we accept proposals in multiple languages.
  • Encourage people to meet and engage in whatever language they feel comfortable. Just be sure to report what you discussed, so that we can get it translated and read the results.
As for your November conference, it would be tremendous if we could include some open discussions there. One possibility would be to extend the brainstorming phase through the end of the year, and perhaps even beyond. This would require overlapping different phases, which I think is okay. Let's continue to discuss possibilities. --Eekim 22:22, 22 July 2009 (UTC)Reply

Thank you


Hi Eugene, thank you for starting Best practices in using CentralNotice! I would love to learn more about it. In the meanwhile I've added it to the list of milestones on the Best practices documentation team page. --Frank Schulenburg 20:21, 1 October 2009 (UTC)Reply

Happy to do it, Frank. :-) We learned a lot from doing it with the strategy call for participation, and we wanted to make sure we documented it. Will hopefully be more fully fleshed out in the next few days. --Eekim 21:05, 1 October 2009 (UTC)Reply

Overview #2 of updates on Wikimedia movement strategy process


Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English. This message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

As we mentioned last month, the Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout 2017. This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve.

Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list, and posted on Meta-Wiki. Each month, we are sending overviews of these updates to this page as well. Sign up to receive future announcements and monthly highlights of strategy updates on your user talk page.

Here is a overview of the updates that have been sent since our message last month:

More information about the movement strategy is available on the Meta-Wiki 2017 Wikimedia movement strategy portal.
