Helping WebCite[edit]

WebCite – WebCite is attempting to raise money for in order to continue providing services that Wikipedians use. Many Wikimedia users are concerned: WebCite. Some believe that its best to provide WebCite with a large grant rather than having the WMF take it over completely: WebCite#WebCite_can_apply_for_a_grant. Philippe recommended speaking to you. WebCite seeks to raise $50,000 by the year. I don't believe that they could raise over $5,000 without publicity or aid from major donors. Is it possible for WebCite to apply for a grant of about $45,000? --Michaeldsuarez (talk) 02:21, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

Hello there, Michaeldsuarez, thanks for reaching out with this question! I responded to the discussion on Meta, and note that the FDC eligibility criteria outline what is required in order to apply for FDC grants. Please let me know if you have any other questions! KLove (WMF) (talk) 22:38, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Q on WM:FR talkpage[edit]

Very good questions. But I think you use wrong figures mentioning 120 % increase, coorect is 20 % increase making the budget to be 120 % of last years.Anders Wennersten (talk) 06:41, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, Anders--good eye and important distinction! Thanks for catching this. The change has been made. KLove (WMF) (talk) 18:23, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Answers to your questions on Wikimedia France round 2 proposal[edit]

Hi Katy, Just so you know we have answered your questions on our FDC proposal. Please feel free to follow-up on them if you need any more information to better understand our proposal. Best Schiste (talk) 16:47, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Thank you very much, Schiste! I very much appreciate all of Wikimédia France's work on the proposal and the dialogue, and the members of the FDC do as well. KLove (WMF) (talk) 18:20, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

FDC Round 2 postings[edit]

Hi! Because Wikimedia Norway arranged our annual assembly today, we had to post some documents only at this late point since they weren't approved before now. They are posted at the discussion page of our Funds project proposal. Kind regards, Bjoertvedt (talk) 22:19, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

staff assessment[edit]

Hi! Is there any structured way to give some short feedback to the Assessment? I am thinking, first of all, on correcting a few obvious misunderstandings and incorrect factual statements in the assessment (for instance, regarding our budget cycle). Br, Bjoertvedt (talk) 16:25, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Letter of intent[edit]

Hi Katy, I have posted a question here and I'm not sure who to ping to get an answer. So I'm pinging you ;). Cheers, notafish }<';> 13:20, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

Edit summaries[edit]

Hello, Katy! Thank you very much for your updates to the Eligibility Checklist. It is important that you add a detailed edit summary when updating this checklist, especially since the edits occur within a complicated table and it is difficult to review the edit history in order to understand the changes. In fact, it is good etiquette to always use the edit summary field. Cheers, Winifred Olliff (Grants Administrator) talk 18:47, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Two new people have been hired for the Structured Data on Commons team. We are now complete! :-)

  • Ramsey Isler is the new Product Manager of the Multimedia team.
  • Pamela Drouin was hired as User Interface Designer. She works at the Multimedia team as well, and her work will focus on the Structured Commons project.
Partners and allies
  • We are still welcoming (more) staff from GLAMs (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) to become part of our long-term focus group (phabricator task T174134). You will be kept in the loop of the project, and receive regular small surveys and requests for feedback. Get in touch with Sandra if you're interested - your input in helping to shape this project is highly valued!
Research

Design research is ongoing.

  • Jonathan Morgan and Niharika Ved have held interviews with various GLAM staff about their batch upload workflows and will finish and report on these in this quarter. (phabricator task T159495)
  • At this moment, there is also an online survey for GLAM staff, Wikimedians in Residence, and GLAM volunteers who upload media collections to Wikimedia Commons. The results will be used to understand how we can improve this experience. (phabricator task T175188)
  • Upcoming: interviews with Wikimedia volunteers who curate media on Commons (including tool developers), talking about activities and workflows. (phabricator task T175185)
Development

In Autumn 2017, the Structured Commons development team works on the following major tasks (see also the quarterly goals for the team):

  • Getting Multi-Content Revisions sufficiently ready, so that the Multimedia and Search Platform teams can start using it to test and prototype things.
  • Determine metrics and metrics baseline for Commons (phabricator task T174519).
  • The multimedia team at WMF is gaining expertise in Wikibase, and unblocking further development for Structured Commons, by completing the MediaInfo extension for Wikibase.

  • Since our last newsletter, the Structured Data team has moved into designing and building prototypes for various features. The use of multilingual captions in the UploadWizard and on the file page has been researched, designed, discussed, and built out for use. Behind the scenes, back-end work on search is taking place and designs are being drawn up for the front-end. There will soon be specifications published for the use of the first Wikidata property on Commons, "Depicts," and a prototype is to be released to go along with that.

Structured Data Newsletter - Research link fix[edit]

Greetings,

The newsletter omitted two interwiki prefixes, breaking the links on non-meta wikis as you might see above. Here are the correct links:

  1. m:Research:Curation workflows on Wikimedia Commons—a project that seeks to understand the current workflows of Commons contributors who curate media (categorize it, delete it, link to it from other projects, etc.).
  2. m:Research:Technical needs of external re-users of Commons media—soliciting feedback from individuals and organizations that re-use Commons content outside of Wikimedia projects, in order to understand their current painpoints and unmet needs.

My apologies, I hope you find the corrected links helpful.

  • The info portal on Structured Commons now includes a section on GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums).
  • We are currently planning the first GLAM pilot projects that will use structured data on Wikimedia Commons. One project has already started: the Swedish Heritage Board researches and develops a prototype tool to provide improved metadata (translations, data additions...) from Wikimedia Commons back to the source institution. Read the project brief.
  • The documentation for batch uploads of files to Wikimedia Commons will be improved in 2019, as part of preparing for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons. To prepare, the GLAM team at the Wikimedia Foundation wants to understand better which types of documentation you already use, and how you like to learn new GLAM-Wiki skills and knowledge. Fill in a short survey to provide input!
Stay up to date!

Captions in January[edit]

The previous message from today says captions will be released in November in the text. January is the correct month. My apologies for the potential confusion. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 20:43, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - file captions coming this week (January 2019)[edit]

My apologies if this is a duplicate message for you, it is being sent to multiple lists which you may be signed up for.

Hi all, following up on last month's announcement...

Multilingual file captions will be released this week, on either Wednesday, 9 January or Thursday, 10 January 2019. Captions are a feature to add short, translatable descriptions to files. Here's some links you might want to look follow before the release, if you haven't already:

  1. Read over the help page for using captions - I wrote the page on mediawiki.org because captions are available for any MediaWiki user, feel free to host/modify a copy of the page here on Commons.
  2. Test out using captions on Beta Commons.
  3. Leave feedback about the test on the captions test talk page, if you have anything you'd like to say prior to release.

Additionally, there will be an IRC office hour on Thursday, 10 January with the Structured Data team to talk about file captions, as well as anything else the community may be interested in. Date/time conversion, as well as a link to join, are on Meta.

Thanks for your time, I look forward to seeing those who can make it to the IRC office hour on Thursday. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:09, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
