Free Open Shared event scheduling[edit]

Hello, when WMF organizes Free Open Shared events, would you please post those event announcements to the Wikimedia-SF public mailing list?

Also, when WMF organizes events like these, would you please try to deconflict them from the monthly Wikimedia US Coalition meetups that are scheduled via Doodle? The Doodle polls are posted to the WikimeduaUS-l public mailing list, and it would be helpful if WMF would check which dates are popular on those polls before WMF schedules events in SF. For this month the SF FOS event was scheduled before the US event, and in circumstances like this it would be helpful to have the WMF event announced to the SF mailing list as soon as possible so that the people who are scheduling the US meetup can try to deconflict that meetup from the SF meetup. Thanks! --Pine 21:17, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Hi Pine. Yes, I can try. Thanks for reaching out about this. --JGerlach (WMF) (talk) 18:08, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Pre-filters[edit]

I fully agree with you that pre-filters would suck. But, there's always a but.. Roughly 70% of cross-wiki uploads are extremely problematic. It really is terrible. Take a look at the cross-wiki uploads at any given time and the majority is just crap:

And it goes on and on and on. Pre-filters are a terrible idea, but doing nothing about cross-wiki uploads only provides ammunition to the proponents of it. I actually did start on c:Commons:Upload Wizard proposals some time ago, but a nearly complete lack of support and interest means I won't get back to that soon.
