Blocking of my IP-adress[edit]

Hello! Why have you blocked my IP-adress?? I've never abused any person or made something wrong. Maybe it was made a mistake. Explain me, please, what' s happened. Thanks!

Blocking of my IP-adress too[edit]

Why?


translatewiki[edit]

با سلام. یک راهنمایی از شما میخواستم. من در ویکی گیلکی مدیر هستم. در ترانسلیت ویکی یک حساب کاربری دارم که بعد از مدتی به این سایت مراجعه کردم اما پسورد من را نپذیرفت. از قسمت فراموشی پسورد هم که اقدام میکنم پیام میدهد که پسورد جدید را به ایمیلم ارسال کرده اما چیزی نه در قسمت اینباکس و نه اسپم نمی آید. به نظر شما راه حل چیست؟ ممنون--AminSanaei (talk) 10:38, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

سلام لطفا پیوند حسابتان در آن ویکی را بدهید تا من از مدیران ترنسلیت ویکی پرسجو کنم. فقط مطمئن هستید که در تنظیمات خود ایمیل را وارد کرده اید ؟ Mardetanha talk 11:43, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
glk:user:AminSanaei، .این نام کاربری من هم در ویکی گیلکی و هم در ویکی ترانسلیت است. البته چیزی درمورد اینکه ایمیل خود را در آنجا وارد کرده باشم، به یاد ندارم! --AminSanaei (talk) 12:06, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
اگر ایمیل وارد نکرده باشید، امکان ریست کردن پسورد به سختی وجود دارد، چند ویراش در آنجا دارید ؟Mardetanha talk 04:17, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

سلام، من داريوش هستم و در ويکي پښتو کار می کنم. ما با یک کاربر مشکل بزرگ داریم. این کاربر مقالات ما خراب می کند و به هرکس بی ادب است. لطفا می توانید ادریس اورا بلوک کنید یا بگوييد چه کار کنيم؟ در ايجا یک مثال است:

باسلام[edit]

من مدتی است که در ویکی عربی فعالیت میکنم چندتا از مقالات من حذف شد است وقتی علت حذف را پرسیدم عباس جواب داداین فرد معیار سرشناسی را ندارد در حالی که اون فرد کاملا سرشناس است و از جمله سیاسیون است و در ویکی انگلیسی و فارسی هم صفحه دارد. ایشان گفت که اینکه کسی در ویکی انگیلیسی و یا فارسی صفحه داره دلیل نمیشه در عربی سرشناس باشه و با معیار های سرشناسی عربی همخوانی داشته باشه من میخوام بپرسم معیار سرشناسی ثابت است برای همه ویکی پدیا ها یا خیر؟ باتشکر از لطف شما راستی این هم لینک صفحه حذف شده است:https://ar.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D9%85%D8%AD%D9%85%D8%AF_%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%85%D9%81%D8%AA%D8%AD اسم من هم Sfarahani313است

19:03, 4 June 2015 (UTC) درود سرشناسی افراد در ویکی جداگانه باید احراز بشود و داشتن صفحه در یک ویکی مجوزی برای داشتن صفحه در ویکی دیگر نیست

باسلام مجدد و عرض خسته نباشید از پاسخ شما سپاسگزارم. اما مگر سرشناسی یک تعریف مشخص ندارد؟ اگر تعدادی منابع ثانویه معتبر باشند که با عمق مناسب به موضوع پرداخته چه فرقی می کند که مقاله در کدام ویکی زبان نوشته شود؟ مگر سیاسیون و افراد سرشناس هر منطقه و یا کشوری ملحوظیت لازم برای ایجاد صفحه را داشته باشند و در سایتها ومنابع معتبر درباره اون فرد پرداخته باشند نمی توانند در زبان دیگر صفحه داشته باشند؟ آیا حتما باید اون فرد عرب زیان باشد که درباره او صفحه ایجاد شود؟ ما در ویکی عربی از غیر عرب زبانها صفحات و مطالب زیادی داریم. خب چرا بعضی ها باید صفحه داشته باشند و بعضی نه. ایا این سلیقه ای برخورد کردن نیست؟ چرا بعضی افراد مجورز ایجاد صفحه را دارند اما بعضی مجوز ندارند؟ این جانب دارانه برخورد کردن نیست؟ مقاله من بعد از 10 روز که از انتشارش گذشت با برچسب عدم ملحوظیت لازم حذف شد. برای شما ممکه به این مسئله رسیدگی کنید؟ باتشکر از رسیدگی و توجه نظر شما. sfarahani313

با سلام

باعرض پوزش برای جنابعالی مقدور است به درخواست بنده رسیدگی نمایید؟ باتشکر فراوان


سلام و عرض پوزش‌های صمیمانه، تعریف مشخص است تقریبا در اکثر ویکی‌ها به یک شکل است اما تاکید میکنم اینکه مقاله ای در ویکی نوشته شد و پاک نشد دلیل موجه برای اینکه آن فرد یا موضوع در ویکی دیگری مقاله داشته باشند نیست. بارها شده افراد به روشهای توانسته‌اند به روشهایی در برای خود یا دیگران در ویکی‌هایی مقالات بسازند و به طبع آن دنبال مقاله در همه ویکی ها بوده‌اند. روش معقول اینست که سایر مدیران آن ویکی بخواهید موضوع را بررسی کنند Mardetanha talk 19:21, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

باسلام با سپاس از شما. از راهنمایی شما ممنون و سپاسگزارم. sfarahani313

Re. Russian Wikibooks[edit]

Just as a kindly reminder, you’ve earlier expressed interest at helping us find an experienced Russian-speaking wikimedian to arbitrate in the conflict going on at Russian Wikibooks.

As promised, I’ve prepared a list of questions regarding the administrative policies and practices employed over the Wikimedia-verse that I’m eager to hear answers for; and also a succinct (around 1500 words) explanation of my view on the conflict. My opponent just did the same; so here they are (we’re ended up filing it here at Meta as a kind of “neutral ground”):

Thanks again for your assistance. (And hope we’d finally be able to move forward with this issue.)

Ivan Shmakov (dc) 19:05, 16 June 2015 (UTC)

Sure, I will let you know as soon as possible Mardetanha talk 20:05, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
@Ivan Shmakov and Oleg3280: And please stop reverting each other, just write what you think Mardetanha talk 20:15, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
I’ve reverted his edits on the sole reason that they should go to the respective talk page; he has since complied.
As our prior discussions proved to be fruitless, I’d rather not interact with him directly until this conflict is resolved. My suggestion would be that we both instead explain our points to the third party we choose – and then listen to whatever he or she says.
Ivan Shmakov (dc) 20:40, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
It looks like my opponent decided to leave Wikimedia, rendering this request meaningless. Thanks again for your time, and sorry for the noise. — Ivan Shmakov (dc) 01:45, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
I am not happy seeing him leaving the project, hopefully he won't leave and rather try to solve the problem Mardetanha talk 08:51, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
So do I. — Ivan Shmakov (dc) 10:25, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
Just in case, I’d still appreciate if someone could review our arguments. Should any serious misconduct be found on my side, I’d voluntarily resign my (temporary) adminship and will cooperate with global sysops when needed instead. Thanks in advance. — Ivan Shmakov (dc) 12:12, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
I apologize for yesterday's emotional comments. The rest of the discussion will be continued in Russian Wikibooks. I apologize for the time taken away from the noise on the irc-channel. Technically, as long as I have the administrative flag I can unlock himself. Emotions ... Can I do it now? I also ask you to remove this page (if Ivan does not mind), and discussion page (emotional comments). I really want to continue to participate in the development and improvement of Russian Wikibooks. Please do not restore the three pages in my personal space, which had been removed per author request (G6). 178.92.5.142 12:39, 17 June 2015 (UTC) (User:Oleg3280)
Ivan Shmakov, Конструктивное предложение. Oleg3280 (talk) 15:39, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
Sorry to bother you again, but I’ve just got blocked (as usual – indefinitely, with no talk page access) there one more time.
No immediate action is required, but once Oleg3280 files an application for prolonging his administrative rights (which he formely stated he’d do next Monday, 2015-09-14, as the rights expire within some two weeks from that date), I hope to get in touch with some kind soul who’d pass my comments regarding that application to the Russian Wikibooks community, for them to make an informed choice. (I’ll try to find a suitable person myself, but I’d still be grateful if you could suggest one.)
Thanks for your assistance.
Ivan Shmakov (dc) 19:30, 10 September 2015 (UTC)

Переведите, Иван, на английский, что Вы в данном случае защищаете вандалов и виртуалов, а мой вклад, с Вашей точки зрения, после 5 июля прошлого года, ничего не стоит. Oleg3280 (talk) 19:40, 10 September 2015 (UTC)

Oleg3280 has requested in the above that I’d translate into English his claims that I “protect vandals and sockpuppets [‘virtuals’], and that his contributions, from my view, after 2014-07-05, are worthless.”
And while I indeed support the Wikimedians’ use of several accounts in general (that is: not for the purposes of violating the rules; for instance, I myself operate a separate “bot” account, ISbot), by this time, I’ve abandoned all hope that he will produce any evidence whatsoever to support the rest of his claims. The evidence I could at least try to counter.

تغییر نام کاربری[edit]

درود بر مرد تنها. بنده در خواست تغییر نام در ویکی پدیای فارسی را داده بودم و متاسفانه نام من جهانی تغییر کرد و این در خواسته من نبود. بحث مورد نظر در اینجاست و میخواستم بدانم آیا امکان تغییر نام فقط در ویکی فارسی هست؟ اگر نیست میخواهم نام قبلیم به طور جهانی برگردد. با تشکر. نان (talk) 05:58, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

Your action on User:Zack90[edit]

Hello Mard! I noticed that you blocked User:Zack90 today here on meta with the comment cross wiki, abusing multiple accounts. While I don't want to judge the action itself, I've a real problem with that. You aren't a regular local sysop on meta anymore since 2013. The admin rights you currently hold are just for your work for the already pasted elections. So, you shouldn't have acted/blocked as "sysop". Now, one could say that you acted per M:MSR as a steward. However, I think that isn't the case. The action was neither urgently needed nor is it by any means uncontroversial, especially considering the history you've with the alleged sock-master. Looking at the action and my explanation here, I see this action as a clear misuse of the tools you have and therefor ask you to clarify/explain the situation and action and why you think it was justified. Regards, -Barras talk 18:20, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

I am traveling at the moment and have sporadic access to internet but in short, per MSR, I had blocked user since he used his sock to vote on meta, though I think his sock account should be globally locked (on the ground of cross wiki abuse and sock puppetry, sock is now blcked on fawiki, enwwiki, wikidata, all done by different admins which warrant his cross abuse) but if you think the block is unjustified you may remove the block but I don't see any reason why user should have access to his sock which he already misused, (there is an email about him and his action in steward-l where you can find more information), and honestly i think his main account also should be blocked again Mardetanha talk 21:41, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
As I tried to explain above, I don't actually mind the action, I don't want to judge it at all. Or saying it better, the reason surely was valid. However, the block you issued is totally out of any of your mandate. I don't think the block is unjustified. The problem I see here that you issued the block for at least two reasons: 1) Such a block is out of your mandate as steward as it was neither urgent or anything that warrants stewardactions, 2) you clearly have a history with that user, or let's try to say it more neutral, you've a history with the alleged sock master. You can't be neutral in any way when dealing with this user and should logically refrain from such actions except in thing that urgently need to be done. The point is not the reason for the action. After the post on RfH I most likely had issued the block myself anyway. The issue is that you very clearly acted far outside your mandate you've on this project. (PS: I read the ML and will now send a link to this thread to it for the reference.) -Barras talk 23:36, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
I lifted the block, but for this block and blocks like this fall in the category of uncontroversial actions (it is routine procedure), and I don't how did you conclude that I have history with user, I just did what am I supposed to to Mardetanha talk 23:42, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
I think you still didn't get what the problem here is. It's not about the user being blocked or not. I don't really care about this. Blocking socks and sock masters is out of you for this projects. Such stuff should be dealt with by "local" rights holders. Blocking socks which are not clearly proven to be socks by CUs (at best local CUs) and that aren't clearly vandalizing/abusing their privileges on this project are everything but uncontroversial. As for the history part, I'm not going to look up anything, but those two things should be sufficient for now: metawiki, fawiki. The action would've surely been at least less problematic if it had been done by a local admin and not by a steward (as in if you still were an admin). -Barras talk 12:23, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

One question[edit]

Dear Mardetanha, I have a question: can be such a thing, that in other project, for example Armenian Wikibooks, admin elects without voting, for "clean up" this project. --Vadgt (talk) 14:32, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

yes, if there is no admin around and the project is full of non-sense pages, we can grant temporary adminship for clean up, in the way they can tag pages for deletion and GS or steward can help with clean up . Mardetanha talk 14:35, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
in Armenian Wikibooks, no admin. But now this project cleaned up, and now I not want admin flag. --Vadgt (talk) 15:54, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
‌please open a discussion in village pump and if there is no village pump in talk page of main, that you want to be admin, after one week or two, let me know Mardetanha talk
Armenian Wikibooks not have active user. And now I not want admin flag. But if, for example I want admin flag, then how need I do? --Vadgt (talk) 16:28, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
This is a normal procedure and we have to respect all communities even very very small ones Mardetanha talk 16:49, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
ok, but I'm only editor in Armenian Wikibooks. --Vadgt (talk) 17:09, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
I see but it makes no difference, one week or two is normal procedure, after this time we can grant you temporary adminship to help Mardetanha talk 17:19, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
this procedure how come, I write in village pump of this project, and wait for community agree, or steward agree? --Vadgt (talk) 17:45, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
Just mention you are planning to ask for adminship and if someone has issue with this, voice his/her concern Mardetanha talk 17:49, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
Ok, thank you. --Vadgt (talk) 18:03, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Please sign new Wikimedia confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information by 15 December[edit]

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

Wikimedia Foundation logo - vertical (2012-2016).svg

As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are beginning the transition to the new policy.

An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.

The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that anyone with access to nonpublic information sign the new confidentiality agreement by 15 December 2015 (OTRS users have until 22 December 2015) to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have access to nonpublic information and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy.

Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. The general confidentiality agreement is now ready, and the OTRS agreement will be ready after 22 September 2015. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign

If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me (gvarnum(_AT_)wikimedia.org). Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 15 December 2015 (OTRS users have until 22 December 2015) to retain your access to nonpublic information. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

Thank you,

Salam Mardetanha, how are you ? I hope every thing is ok with you. I just want to ask you if you can transmit this link to someone interested in wikidata and fawiki. It's updated daily I think, and here's a lot of possible links between articles in different langiages but having the same name. I have added arwiki/fawiki and there is already fawiki/mznwiki. You can add a lot of others like fawiki/fawikisource,.... It helped me a lot with Arabic articles, so I suppose that it's going to help you too in fa projects. --Helmoony (talk) 03:53, 12 December 2015 (UTC)

Dear global bot operator: Some days ago you received a message in which you were informed that one or various accounts you hold lost a global bot flag because of inactivity.

As such, if you think your bot will be active again on global bot duties, you can request the restoration of the global bot flag on the stewards' noticeboard at Meta-Wiki within the next two (2) weeks after this message has been posted. Please note that this removal was purely procedural based on inactivity. If you have any questions, you can reach me on my talk page at Meta-Wiki. Please accept my apologies in advance for this.

Blocked range 77.37.128.0/18 (major Russian provider Rostelekom)[edit]

Hi, Mohsen, for unknown reason, you have blocked the whole range 77.37.128.0/18. Unless you have some very serious reasons for doing so, and taking into account it is is a range of dynamic addresses assigned to one of the major Russian provider Rostelekom, it seems to be either an overkill, or a part of Putin-Khamenei deal ) Sure, I can try to find out my password stored at another computer, change my password, or use some secure proxy, but it seems to me that the ban has hampered significantly many Russian users, especially due to the fact that the all that I need just now is to make two minor corrections to two Russian pages. Please, explain your reasons, and unblock this range if possible. Best regards, user Pseudodemetrius

Hello, The block was based on a request to stop икита-Родин-2002 and range he was using, for now I have lifted the block, but if the misuse happens again from the range, we have to block it again Mardetanha talk 02:36, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Recent OS actions on Wikidata[edit]

Hello Mardetanha,

recently you assigned yourself the oversighter flag at Wikidata for a few times.

Thanks, --Vogone (talk) 12:32, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

Hello Dear Vogone, I generally would not perform OS on project where they have their own local OSs, since I do respect projects independence but this case was quite emergency and had to be treated with quick response to stop the vandal. I would be more than happy to report back to your project just point me to the page Mardetanha talk 20:55, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

I can see no private or revealing info in those. @Stryn: you aren't a local oversighter anymore on Wikidata, and that is your homewiki. Why are you fixing Marde's actions, without attempting to contact local users? Update: I've gone and fixed four instances of you not hiding the correct content, or hiding a username/IP instead if the private/defamatory info, or hiding an IP for apparently no reason. Can you provide some sort of justification for hiding the particular username (I can PM it to you if needed)? Otherwise I'll unhide those too as I can see no reason why that would be private info. Ajraddatz (talk) 21:00, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
When I saw that Mardetanha was not properly hid what had to be hidden I write about it on stew's channel, but when I didn't get any attention there, and local Wikidata OS's were not on IRC, I chose to perform those by myself as per "Stewards_policy#Avoid_conflicts_of_interest: changing rights on home wikis (wikis where they are active community members), except for clearcut cases (such as self-requested removal or emergencies)". And while I'm an admin on Wikidata, I'm not that active there anymore. --Stryn (talk) 21:32, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
Fair enough. I appreciate your efforts to fix it, and since you were a local os who resigned non-controversially I have no issues with your actions. Just wanted to make sure you were aware of the policy :P Ajraddatz (talk) 21:35, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
Hello, @Ajraddatz: , Mardetanha acted upon my request for an emergency situation , I saw no WD OS's available so has Stryn, and I've shared my findings. I also have to note that I've requested deletion of a talk page and Mardetanha chose to leave it to local admins. Reading this log I've became a little confused now as to whether seek stewards help anymore in a similar case. Please clarify.Thanks.--HakanIST (talk) 13:08, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
Hi. There isn't a problem with seeking steward help when both of us are unavailable, though it's worth noting that I can't be on IRC every waking hour. Try emailing the @wikidata.org email address listed at WD:OS; if you don't get a response there for a while, then go for steward help. Or just get an admin to hide the revisions until an oversighter arrives.
My issue here isn't the steward actions, it's the oversight actions. No local message was left to the community, and no correct content was actually hidden. Mistakes are fine, I just want to know at this point if some of the info which was hidden needs to be. Ajraddatz (talk) 17:28, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
When I was helping the user with his request, I was on my lunch break at work, and since no steward was responding, I had to do it, I tried to do everything properly and I asked the user to check everything as well but I might have made mistake and thanks both Stryn and you Mardetanha talk 06:01, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
@Stryn: I wondered that too... next time I would add some sort of justification in the summary when you're changing the rights, so you don't cause people to worry Face-smile.svg --Rschen7754 03:51, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

Walaa with Mr. Rashid El Telwaty, Ms. Bonnie Chiu, Mr. Jake and Ms. Naadiya Moosajee.

Snippet: Education Leaders at WISE Doha 2015 introducing Wikipedia Education Program in Egypt to WISE Conference attendees, as an example of a program in the Arab World, to share their experience to inspire other universities and institutions starting new programs in the area.

WISE 2015 Sessions and Plenaries were designed around three main pillars such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals; education and the economy; fostering innovation in education systems. Each pillar examined a variety of key topics including: the linkages between education, employment, and entrepreneurship; education reform and innovation in the MENA region and Qatar; emerging models of education financing, attracting, rewarding and retaining quality teachers; and the importance of investing in early childhood development.

Representatives of Wikipedia Education Program Walaa Abdel Manaem and Reem Al-Kashif participated in WISE Doha 2015 in Qatar, the annual World Innovation Summit for Education is the premier international platform dedicated to innovation and creative action in education where top decision-makers share insights with on-the-ground practitioners and collaborate to rethink education. Also, WISE 2015 was the first global education conference following the ratification of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in September 2015. Contributions ranged from Arabic Brochure of Editing Wikipedia for students in WEP in Egypt and everybody who would like to edit Wikipedia without ‎problems, The Arabic version of Welcome to Wikipedia reference guideline, PDF of brochure handed out during Arabic Wikipedia Convening, Doha, Qatar, 2011 and Introduction to Wikipedia. These contributions are related to show a case study of Wikipedia Education program in Egypt and how it worked since February 2012 till the November 2015, as the seventh edition ended last October. All discussions were about the program's mechanism and what were the motivations keeping it going. The program helped increasing gender diversity and supported the featured content on Arabic Wikipedia. Wikipedia Education Program, like any other initiative, has achievements and dark sides, for that reason, the representatives had to locate both of them and how they influence the Arabic community and how the community interact with this phenomenon.

Wikipedia in Higher Education in Israel: A new for-credit elective course focusing on contributing to Wikipedia at Tel Aviv University

By Shani Evenstein (WMIL)

Amir explains about the new translation tool to students

Snippet: A first-of-its-kind, for-credit, elective course that focuses on contributing to Wikipedia has opened at Tel Aviv University and is now available to all B.A. students on campus

On October 19th a new for-credit elective course called "Wikipedia: Skills for producing and consuming knowledge"[1] has opened at Tel Aviv University (TAU). The semester-long course (13 weeks) is available to all B.A. students on campus and this semester about 50 students from various disciplines are taking part in this first-of-its-kind course in Israel.

Working in small groups to correct copyrights and Non-NPOV violations

The course draws from "flipped classroom" concepts and uses "blended learning" methods, which practically means combining in-class lectures, workshops and small-group activities, as well as online individual learning. Both the Moodle learning management system (LMS) and the Wikipedia Education Extension are used to monitor the students' work and progress throughout the course.

The course has 2 main assignments - expanding an existing stub, as well as writing a new article, in the hopes that the content added during the course will assist not only the students themselves, but also future generations of learners as well as the general public. Though the course focuses on adding quality content to Wikipedia, it also aims to help students sharpen their academic skills and their 21st century skills, highlighting collaborative learning, joint online research and interdisciplinary collaborations in the process of constructing knowledge.

This course was initiated and is led by Shani Evenstein, an educator, Wikimedian and member of the Wikipedia Education Collaborative, in collaboration with the Orange Institute for Internet Studies, as well as the School of Education at TAU. The syllabus for the new course builds on the success of Wiki-Med, a for-credit elective course, which was designed in 2013 and is led by Evenstein at the Sackler school of Medicine for the third consecutive year. While Wiki-med is focused on contributing medical content to Wikipedia and is only available to Medical Students on campus, the new course is designed to accommodate students from different academic disciplines and varying backgrounds.

Wikipedia course for BA students at Tel Aviv University - Course Logo.png

The course was chosen to be part of TAU's cross-discipline elective courses system ("Kelim Shluvim") and was approved by the Vice-Rector, who heads the program. In that, the course marks an important precedent in the collaboration between Academia and the Wikipedia Education Program, as it is the first time a higher institution acknowledges the importance of a course focusing on Wikipedia on a university level, offering it to all students, rather than a faculty level or individual lecturers as mostly practiced. It is our hope that other higher education institutions will follow this example and offer similar courses to students both in Israel and around the world.

The collaborative production in open educational environments: Is Wikipedia an answer?

By Melina Masnatta, Wikimedia Argentina

Snippet: University professors become Wikipedians in an online course during just a week.

How to be a Wikipedian in a week (educactional MOOC for university professors)

Educators with different profiles and from different latin america countries, but most of them professors at the University of Buenos Aires (UBA) from different faculties, have just participated in the online training and free course "Educational scenarios with technology. Among the real and the possible" organized by the Center for Innovation in Technology and Pedagogy (CITEP) of this university.

Different educational activities were carried out simultaneously. During the week and under the topic “Open movement”, Wikimedia Argentina participated with three different proposals: starting with an interview of Patricio Lorente accompanied with a short text to know more about the movement. To make an immersive experience we designed " Knowing Wikipedia by first-hand or Wikipedia in the first person" to work directly on the platform translating articles from english to spanish from a list created especially for that purpose. Along with this specific proposal, educators participated in a videoconference with Galileo Vidoni (available in Spanish), where participants could talk and learn more about how are the first steps to become a Wikipedian and the importance of the movement at the local and regional level.

A professor´s educational experience with Wikipedia explained with a tweet. He said: "I´m translating, enjoying and learning with Wikipedia". Know more experiences on Storify.

With only seven days and without being mandatory, different educators discovered how to edit on Wikipedia, indeed many of them mentioned that they had it as a pending to learn and participate on the free encyclopedia, but never had the time or the real chance. The enthusiasm was also present on social networks, where they shared the experience with the hashtag #escenariostec.

The result

More than 100 educators got involved and exchanged their experience in an online forum with more of 280 messages that reflected their learning process while experiencing with the activity. 80 of them were new users, and they created 61 new articles in spanish. An important fact: 78 of them were women, which means that working with educators is a key issue to continue closing the digital gender gap.

Finally from CITEP, they shared the following insights regarding the question that ran through all the activities that took place during the week dedicated to the open movement. Some thoughts can be sum up as follows:

The collaborative production in open environments: chaos or construction? (...) For the teacher also means accepting new challenges: encourage students to produce knowledge in an environment of divergent nature, it requires permanent operations and convergence. In a space that fosters interventions unmarked, the teacher needs to frame depending on the purpose of education and teaching purposes. (…) Wikipedia is the best example of the challenges posed by the digital era in the educational field, it forces us to rethink the relationship between technology and the production of knowledge and allows us to confirm that the collaborative work does not lead to chaos, if not to the construction. (. ..) [Authors: Angeles Solectic and Miri Latorre]

We share some of the voices of the protagonists in social networks with storify (available in Spanish). Read more about the Wikipedia Education Program in Argentina here.

Collaboration with Masaryk University turns official

By Vojtěch Dostál (Wikimedia Czech Republic)

Masaryk University employees are being trained in using and editing Wikipedia
Marek Blahuš, Wikipedian in residence at Masaryk University

Snippet: The second largest university in the Czech Republic has employed a Wikipedian in residence, leading to a boom of Wikimedia activities in the city of Brno.

Collaboration between Wikipedia and Czech institutions has always been a priority for Wikimedia Czech Republic, but the year 2015 has taken this to another level. First, an official memorandum of collaboration with the National Heritage Institute (NPÚ) was signed in May 2015, to be followed by official collaboration with Masaryk University in Brno (the second largest city and university in the Czech Republic), which was contracted in November 2015. In fact, Wikimedia activities in Brno have been blooming for several years now, mainly as a result of the community's own development, but aided substantially by the external interest in Wikipedia by Masaryk University alumni society, demonstrated as early as March 2013.

In February 2015, the university employed one of the most experienced Czech Wikipedians – Marek Blahuš (Blahma) – who was appointed to become the university's first "Wikipedian in residence". Marek Blahuš has been in the center of the Wikimedia community in Brno for about two years, organizing regular Wikipedia meetups, the 2014 edition of the annual WikiConference (more in English here) and creating the Czech-Slovak Wikipedia translation tool, which has famously led to the creation of >9000 articles on Czech and Slovak Wikipedias (more in English here). His current work as Wikipedian in residence is funded by Masaryk University and runs under the patronage of Wikimedia Czech Republic as well as Masaryk University's rector Mikuláš Bek.

Since February, Wikipedia has taken a prominent role within Masaryk University. Marek Blahuš started a "Masaryk University Wikipedians team", gathering local Wikipedians and facilitating contacts with the university, aided by his status of a graduate and current employee in its language center. Articles about Masaryk University alumni and faculties have been identified and improved after consultations with Masaryk University archives and libraries which provided helpful resources. Wikipedia citation templates can now be directly generated from the university's on-line archive of theses. In September, a public conference called "Masaryk University Is Getting High on Wikipedia" took place on university grounds, featuring the experienced Wikipedian Jan Sokol (Sokoljan), who is a philosopher, university teacher and a former presidential candidate. The talks focused on the use of Wikipedia in university education, in line with the successful Czech "Students Write Wikipedia" program. One of the teachers, Jiří Rambousek, expressed his desire to organize a Wikipedia Club as a regular meetup where articles would be improved in a collaborative effort and new editors introduced to Wikipedia.

The program is actively preparing for 2016 when we expect Wikimedia Czech Republic to take a more active role in overseeing the initiatives as well as the creation of a position of a "Wikipedian in Brno" – person officially in charge of the wide array of Wikimedia activities happening in the city. The chapter's annual plan includes initiatives to increase the number of university courses which incorporate Wikipedia into the curriculum, public presentations of Wikipedia at various events, scanning and uploading of images from institutional and personal archives, and much more. Let's wish that our plans come true!

Wiki expeditions, animation clips about alebrijes and more at the Tec de Monterrey in Mexico

By Leigh Thelmadatter (Wiki Learning-Tec de Monterrey)

Group photo of Reto Wikimedia participants at Tec de Monterrey, Mexico City Campus

Snippet: Student participation is more than just text!

For the Fall 2015 Wiki Learning-Tec de Monterrey held two wiki expeditions in Mexico City and began a collaboration with the Museo de Arte Popular. We also received our first grant!

Wiki expeditions[edit]

The 32-campus Tec de Monterrey system has each semester an event called "Semana i" (i Week), when students forego normal classes for an entire week to work on challenging projects called "retos." For the Mexico City and Santa Fe campuses, one option for students was to work with Wikimedia, with the aptly named projects "Reto Wikimedia." Both campuses opted to do wiki-expeditions to different parts of Mexico City. The Mexico City campus had the larger group with almost 90 students registered, who covered the two southern boroughs of Xochimilco and Tlalpan. The Santa Fe group had 35 participants, and covered the San Ángel neighborhood found not far from this campus.

Both campus took photos of landmarks with the Mexico City campus also focusing on photos of everyday life in the south of the city. The Mexico City campus tallied 5264 photos, 8 videos and 36 articles, including articles related to the area into French, Swedish and Danish. The Santa Fe group tallied 605 photos, and ten articles in Spanish on landmarks in San Ángel.

In addition, the Mexico City campus had a special speaker the borough chronicler of Xochmilco, Sebastián Flores Farfán. A short montage video of the event is in the works.

Some student photos:

Some video clips of the event:

Animation clips with the Museo de Arte Popular[edit]

Animation about alebrijes

Wikiservicio, students working with Wikimedia for their community service requirement, added a new component. To attract more students and encourage more students to do all of their community service hours with Wikimedia, a collaboration was set up with the Museo de Arte Popular (MAP)... the first of many we hope! Six students from the digital art and animation major (see last newsletter) have continued working with Wikimedia, but focusing their efforts in creating short animation clips in relation to the mission of promoting and preserving Mexican folk art. One clip has been completed and can be see to the right of this text. So far, the video has subtitles in English, German, French and Punjabi. A second clip is nearing completion at the time of this writing.

Classes and Wikimetrics[edit]

Fifteen students completed work with Wikiservicio doing translations, writing new articles and doing photography projects. As of this date, 7 have indicated interest in working with Wikiservicio on campus and another six with MAP.

Five university level classes and one high school class on the Mexico City (South) campus have had projects, all in writing and translation, with some video work.

Wikimetrics for the semester are:

According to Wikimetrics tool....

  • 9,589,918 bytes to Spanish Wikipedia
  • 3,098 edits to the mainspace of Spanish Wikipedia
  • 367 pages created in the mainspace of Spanish Wikipedia

Manual count

  • 302 student and teacher participants
  • 281 Spanish Wikipedia articles created or expanded
  • 6,057 photographs
  • 10 videos
  • 9 articles in English Wikipedia
  • 2 articles in French Wikipedia
  • 1 article in Swedish Wikipedia
  • 1 article in Danish Wikipedia

First grant Wiki Learning received its first grant from the Wikimedia Foundation. The long-term goal of this grant is to establish a system for financing Wiki Learning. The grant, which totals a modest 12,500 Mexican pesos, will be used for swag, such as t shirts, stickers, buttons, etc, especially for Semana i activities and promotion of wiki activities to other campus. The money will also be used for incidental travel expenses, especially for projects needing to move expensive camera equipment.

Wikimedia Argentina, about the global and local in the digital and academic communities

By Christian Cariño (Wikimedia México) and Melina Masnatta (Wikimedia Argentina)

Snippet: Aprender para Educar writes about Wikipedia Education Program in Argentina.

The digital free magazine Aprender para Educar (Learning to educate) of the National Technological University (UTN) is recognized in the community of education and technology in Argentina to write about innovation issues in Spanish, which is not common in the academic dissemination and teacher training field.

Cristina Velazquez, general editor of the magazine invited Wikimedia Argentina to write an article that generally describes their activities in the Education Program, after reading the proposal she decided to publish it as the main article of the 12th edition.

To describe the education program, WMAR wrote two notes completing one another, as doing a zoom: from the local to the global and from the global to the local, showing how a movement of this magnitude does not stand alone, it is part of a huge network.

Melina Masnatta, education manager in WMAR and Patricio Lorente, chair of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees wrote those two notes.The first one focuses on the Education Program, implementation, challenges and obstacles that they had at the beginning, plans to integrate it into the classrooms in Argentina and how different Wikimedia Projects are also relevant in education. The most important thing, Melina adds, is to strengthen the values that inspire them, show how the free culture give meaning to education in general and digital culture in particular.

Meanwhile in the second part, Lorente focuses on the global movement, the community pillars, the agenda of today's challenges and the effort of their volunteers as protagonists. It is not easy show the world what drives us and why we work as volunteers in different countries. In education very few people understand the value of building free knowledge. There is still a great prejudice or negative perceptions of Wikipedia in the classroom because teachers ignore how Wikipedia is built.

Everybody reads Wikipedia, but few people edit it. We can change this fact by spreading in spaces such as the Journal of the UTN and inviting more people to collaborate and be the protagonist of this huge collective work for humanity.

Norwegian Masters students in History and Archeology twists their brains on Wikipedia

By Jorid Martinsen (Wikimedia Norge)

Jorid Martinsen teaching students at the University of Oslo about Wikipedia.

Snippet: This fall masters students in History and Archeology at the University of Oslo take on the task of Wikipedia editing as one of the main parts in a subject on communication of History.

The University of Oslo is Norway’s largest higher education institution, and it is the first time Wikimedia Norway collaborates with this University in forming and using Wikipedia editing as a integrated part of higher education. The collaboration started by Wikimedia Norway contacting assistant professor John McNicol, who already had gotten some media attention on his eagerness to make students skilled in knowledge sharing.

Starting off with a two hour lecture on the secret world of Wikipedia and a two hour editing workshop in mid-September, and in October the students will evaluate the life of their articles. Has there been many additional edits on their articles? Discussions? Request to delete everything? For Wikimedia Norge it is fun to see the students both engaging in Wikipedia editing and using the ways of Wikipedia to discuss how knowledge is formed.
