Superprotect letter update
Along with more hundreds of others, you recently signed Letter to Wikimedia Foundation: Superprotect and Media Viewer, which I wrote.
Today, we have 562 signatures here on Meta, and another 61 on change.org, for a total of 623 signatures. Volunteers have fully translated it into 16 languages, and begun other translations. This far exceeds my most optimistic hopes about how many might sign the letter -- I would have been pleased to gain 200 siguatures -- but new signatures continue to come.
I believe this is a significant moment for Wikimedia and Wikipedia. Very rarely have I seen large numbers of people from multiple language and project communities speak with a unified voice. As I understand it, we are unified in a desire for the Wikimedia Foundation to respect -- in actions, in addition to words -- the will of the community who has built the Wikimedia projects for the benefit of all humanity. I strongly believe it is possible to innovate and improve our software tools, together with the Wikimedia Foundation. But substantial changes are necessary in order for us to work together smoothly and productively. I believe this letter identifies important actions that will strongly support those changes.
Have you been discussing these issues in your local community? If so, I think we would all appreciate an update (on the letter's talk page) about how those discussions have gone, and what people are saying. If not, please be bold and start a discussoin on your Village Pump, or in any other venue your project uses -- and then leave a summary of what kind of response you get on the letter's talk page.
Finally, what do you think is the right time, and the right way, to deliver this letter? We could set a date, or establish a threshold of signatures. I have some ideas, but am open to suggestions.
The Community Wishlist Survey
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) 11:25, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
À propos du système OTRS
Bonjour Gratus. Je me permets de venir t’ennuyer quelques instants car j'ai deux, trois questions, assez simples, à poser à un administrateur du système OTRS, et comme dans cette liste tu es pratiquement le seul que j'ai déjà croisé auparavant, j'ai bon espoir que tu puisses m'aider. Mais avant toute chose, fais-tu toujours partie des administrateurs de ce système ? Je demande cela car je ne te vois pas dans cette liste. Cordialement, Reptilien.19831209BE1 (talk) 17:06, 18 July 2020 (UTC)
- Bonjour, bien que je suis effectivement un volontaire OTRS (réponse aux courriels, gestion des permissions OTRS), je n'ai jamais été administrateur OTRS (gestion des volontaires OTRS). Cordialement,--Gratus (talk) 17:32, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
- Il semblerait que je me suis emmêlé les pinceaux, c'est bien un volontaire OTRS (gestion des permissions OTRS) auquel j'aimerais poser une ou deux questions. Serais-tu d'accord d'y répondre ? peut-être par mail car j'ai bien peur de devoir divulguer les informations personnelles d'un auteur. Reptilien.19831209BE1 (talk) 16:05, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
