User talk:Kiril Simeonovski
It would be a very good timing if you could send to ChapCom, complementing info according to what I wrote on my discussion page. I see that you now have over 30 on your list. That and the person from Albanian wp makes a much stronger case for you. We have just a few day if your application should be send to the Baord for an approval by their meeting by end of August (their next meeting is in middle November).

Regarding your question, the resolution right now sits with the Board, I don't have any timeframe the only thing I can ask of you is to be patient :).--DamianFinol 14:17, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
Translator, We need you!
Dear Kiril Simeonovski,
You have helped us in previous years with translations and for that we are most grateful. Now we turn towards the 2011/12 fundraiser. It may seem forever away, but work has already begun getting everything ready to go. This year we want to have landing pages covering as many countries in as many languages as possible.
Right now, we want to figure out who is interested in translating for the fundraiser. This year we're hoping to have more of a solidified "core" group of translators that we can count on to have work done by a few key dates, but we'd also welcome help from people who are willing to just help out when they can.
If you would be interested please take a look at this little sign-up survey and fill it out http://survey.wikimedia.org/index.php?sid=13638&newtest=Y&lang=en. With that we can start building a list of people and filling any gaps in the languages we serve.
I've replied you there. Regards, Nemo 21:15, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

Questions for FDC candidates
Hi :-) thank you for putting yourself forward for the FDC. I want to draw your attention to the list of questions that people can answer to help the Board of Trustees learn more about the people volunteering for the committee.  Look forward to seeing your answers. Sydney Poore/FloNight (talk) 22:02, 14 August 2012 (UTC)
Your comments are invited on four current FDC proposals
Hello! As you may know, we've opened the community review period for the current funding round in the Funds Dissemination Committee process. I noticed that in the past you expressed interest in the FDC, since you were a nominee for the committee. I'd like to invite you to review the 4 proposals (totaling $1.3 million USD) that were submitted to the FDC, and to ask questions and share comments about those proposals. You can help to ensure that they have high potential for impact regarding the movement's goals. The FDC especially values comments by community members and will take them into account when they prepare their recommendations. Let me know if you have any questions! --Katy Love, Senior Program Officer, Funds Dissemination Committee, Wikimedia Foundation, 22:36, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

You're invited to the Ally Skills Workshop at Wikimania!
You were suggested as someone who might be interested in the Ally Skills Training Workshop at Wikimania! The workshop is designed to train Wikipedia admins to be more aware of sexism and is funded by an Inspire grant. The workshop will focus on teaching specific skills and techniques directly relevant to Wikipedia admins and editors, and in particular will teach people about the psychology of trolls. The workshop will be on Thursday July 16 from 2pm to 5pm in Don Diego 3.
If you are attending Wikimania, you are invited to apply to the Ally Skills Workshop! Space is limited and we may not be able to accept all applications, so apply now. More information, including a link to the application form, is here:
People of all genders are welcome to attend. Unfortunately, travel scholarships for Wikimania are already closed and we don't know of any other sources of travel funding. If you know anyone else attending Wikimania who might be interested in attending this workshop, please encourage them to apply!
Thank you for your time,
Valerie Aurora (Instructor and Interim Executive Director of the Ada Initiative)

Inspire Campaign on content curation & review
I've recently launched an Inspire Campaign to encourage new ideas focusing on content review and curation in Wikimedia projects. Wikimedia volunteers collaboratively manage vast repositories of knowledge, and we’re looking for your ideas about how to manage that knowledge to make it more meaningful and accessible. We invite you to participate and submit ideas, so please get involved today! The campaign runs until March 28th.
All proposals are welcome - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is welcome - your skills and experience can help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign to improve review and curation tasks so that we can make our content more meaningful and accessible! I JethroBT (WMF) 05:39, 29 February 2016 (UTC)
Through June, we’re organizing an Inspire Campaign to encourage and support new ideas focusing on addressing harassment toward Wikimedia contributors. The 2015 Harassment Survey has shown evidence that harassment in various forms - name calling, threats, discrimination, stalking, and impersonation, among others - is pervasive. Available methods and systems to deal with harassment are also considered to be ineffective. These behaviors are clearly harmful, and in addition, many individuals who experience or witness harassment participate less in Wikimedia projects or stop contributing entirely.
Proposals in any language are welcome during the campaign - research projects, technical solutions, community organizing and outreach initiatives, or something completely new! Funding is available from the Wikimedia Foundation for projects that need financial support. Constructive feedback on ideas is appreciated, and collaboration is encouraged - your skills and experience may help bring someone else’s project to life. Join us at the Inspire Campaign so that we can work together to develop ideas around this important and difficult issue. With thanks,
- Hallo Sebastian. Ich freue mich sehr auch darauf. Großen Gruß. --Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 06:33, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Changes to past issues of the CEE Newsletter
Hello, Kiril. While I think that we don't have it written "black on white", I think it is obvious that adding content to already closed issues like this is not a good idea, for a number of reasons. The least, of course, being that the readers of the December 2017 issue will probably never see content added retroactively in October 2018, and also, the issues is being sent by the Mass Message Delivery Bot to all subscribers, and this change now cannot be updated to all the pages where the subscribers have requested delivery. I would recommend instead to contribute with new content to the current volume CEE/Newsletter/Newsroom, but when a volume is finalized my intuitive understanding is it should remain as it is. →Spiritia 12:34, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
- @Spiritia: Hi Vassia. You have a good point and I apologise for the inconvenience. I have immediately reverted the change and brought back the report to its stable version. In relation to this, do you think we should allow reporting activities that happened in the previous months (and were not timely included in the corresponding monthly newsletters) in the newsletter for the current month? For me, this is also highly inappropriate, as the monthly basis of the newsletter precisely frames the time period that should be covered. Best regards.--Kiril Simeonovski (talk) 09:20, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
[Wikipedia & Education User Group] Updates: November 2018
Integrating Wikimedia with education is a powerful strategy for the outreach of Wikimedia projects. Realising this concept, a group of leaders promoted this and formed the Wikipedia Education Collaborative. After some time, this evolved to become a user group, officially recognised by the Affiliations Committee in June 2018. The user group had its first board elections earlier in September. In the process to formalise activities and give a shape the user group for long-term sustainability, we are now revamping our processes. Thanks for supporting us during incubation stages, we are now inviting you to formally join the user group by following the instructions on the members' page. Being a member will allow you to be a part of this wonderful collaboration and also do interesting stuff.
