Fundraising translation feedback
I wanted to ask for your help. As you may be aware we have been running banners on many language wikis. We have a lot of new content this year and I really want to conduct a thorough review of our translations. This is a combination of feedback from the community, readers, donors as well as those with professional translator experience. This will help us ensure the highest quality of translations used in our messaging.
To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to give us feedback for Polish using This Link
Simply follow the simple instructions on that page and if you have any questions feel free to contact me on my talk page.

I think that most of our experience with Wikivacaciones is described in our grant report.
A couple of important observations:
- We used the "vacations" topic broadly, so we allowed photos picturing a wide array of topics (food, people, places, activities, etc.). People mostly sent pictures of places, but we still managed to get some nice pictures of the other topics.
- The writing contest went just fine. We did it on Wikivoyage (because we feel that Wikipedia is already pretty complete, and the "vacations" topic is perfect for that project), and the amount of content was good proportionally for the project size.
- Winners were chosen by a jury. However, we did a special "public award", which was very useful to bring new followers to our Facebook page.
- Volunteers at Commons hate that picture contests usually leave a lot of uncategorized images. We tried to reduce the amount of uncategorized images by ourselves; to help with that, we asked participants for a "Place code" (similar to the "Monument code" used in Wiki Loves Monuments) when uploading pictures; the codes were defined by us (based on already existing colombian codes for towns and cities), and allowed us to know where the pictures were taken (and also allowed us to generate some nice statistics).
That's it for now. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me.
Cheers! --Racso ¿¿¿??? 21:28, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
Hi, Magalia. I hope we can pull out the cooperation in the future! Answering your questions:
- We only allowed photos of Colombia.
- Actually, the contest was during December and January (2 months), and those dates were selected because vacations in Colombia are on those months (the pictures could have been taken in other dates, and they were allowed).
Good luck on your vacations. Cheers! --Racso ¿¿¿??? 16:09, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
@Halibutt: I just noticed that I didn't ping you! Sorry about that. --Racso ¿¿¿??? 16:11, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for your participation in the WikiGap Challenge!
Now, we have finalized the results from the WikiGap Challenge. You can find the general and top results here. I want to thank you for your contribution, which together with the other participants have created a tremendous and long lasting impact for the visibility of women on Wikipedia.
We want to give you a barnstar for your participation, to praise your efforts for a better visibility of women on Wikipedia!
We will analyze the challenge and the way it works closely, to see how we can improve it for next year. It would be very valuable for us if you wanted to share your views on the challenge, especially when it comes to: the point system, the focus, and the adding of the list from UN Human Rights.

The 2021 Community Wishlist Survey is now open! This survey is the process where communities decide what the Community Tech team should work on over the next year. We encourage everyone to submit proposals until the deadline on 30 November, or comment on other proposals to help make them better. The communities will vote on the proposals between 8 December and 21 December.
The Community Tech team is focused on tools for experienced Wikimedia editors. You can write proposals in any language, and we will translate them for you. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing your proposals!
18:25, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
We invite all registered users to vote on the 2021 Community Wishlist Survey. You can vote from now until 21 December for as many different wishes as you want.
In the Survey, wishes for new and improved tools for experienced editors are collected. After the voting, we will do our best to grant your wishes. We will start with the most popular ones.
We, the Community Tech, are one of the Wikimedia Foundation teams. We create and improve editing and wiki moderation tools. What we work on is decided based on results of the Community Wishlist Survey. Once a year, you can submit wishes. After two weeks, you can vote on the ones that you're most interested in. Next, we choose wishes from the survey to work on. Some of the wishes may be granted by volunteer developers or other teams.
We are waiting for your votes. Thank you!

Hi! I'm contacting you as one of the participants in the Wikimedia Summit 2022, to kindly ask for your feedback through a 5-10 minute survey to evaluate 'Baserow' (note: the survey is on a Google form).
Baserow was tool through which participants in the Summit co-created a database of Movement Strategy activities. We hope to learn from you how useful it may be to keep using it in the future to help document and connect on Movement Strategy work.
