User talk:Martin Rulsch (WMDE)
Hi, I have no idea what your edit means... What does "travel budget" stand for? Is "30" the total number of scholarships WMDE will assign with their own process? What does "additional" mean? Nemo 10:56, 8 January 2016 (UTC)
"To the moon"
I noticed you created the "too the moon" page. I am not sure who to turn to for this, but it seems people really want to know some more technical information, i.e. what kind of disc we're dealing with, what compression format we'd use, etc. The Technical unclearities section asks some of the best questions related to this. I hope someone with some details like these could share them with the community, so that we have a better idea what the specifics are. this section may also be of interest. Most of the talk page consists of less interesting discussions, though people simply disapproving of the idea in its entirety is common.
I wasn't sure what to do with this, but I feel like the talk page discussions are going nowhere without some input from people more closely related to the project. ~Mable (chat) 14:32, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
- My colleague Michael responded to the latter link, after Wikimedia Conference I need some time to get an overview on the discussions first. Best, Martin Rulsch (WMDE) (talk) 14:25, 25 April 2016 (UTC)
- Dear User:Martin Rulsch (WMDE), Thank you soooo much for starting the Moon discussion and taking up the torch. I tried to get Wikipedia off the ground and into space before at Wikipedia_likes_Galactic_Exploration_for_Posterity_2015. Some of that discussion in the talk pages can shed some light on the technical and cultural ramifications of your current project. After all, why reinvent the rocket ship. Please feel free to reach out on my EN:user:geraldshields11 talk page or email me if you need more information. Geraldshields11 (talk) 13:34, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
Request for Input - New Central Notice request process
Back in February I emailed the CN-admin list regarding part of my role to look into the Central Notice process and see where we could make improvements including: the campaign process; its functionality or lack thereof; and fundamentally the documentation that supports it. You can see many of the issues that I identified at CentralNotice/Process_Review. If there is anything additional that you feel has been left out then please feel free to leave any comments on the talk page.
My first task is to improve the requesting of campaigns by communities and affiliates. I am looking to set up a more formal request process, similar to those used in many projects. The aim is to: increase the transparency of Central Notice; improve the support provided to affiliates (including making such support more consistent); to provide a forum for community input into campaigns.
I have been working on a very rough strawman version of the process and I would be interested in hearing you comments about what such a process should involve and what you think it would require. Please feel free to leave such comments at the process talk page section. I would like to have a working page in place by the end of May. This would not need to be a final version. The process can be improved upon over time as we learn about how well it works.
Given your role as a Meta Administrator who is actice in the area of Central Notice, I encourage you to:
- Review the strawman request page and request template and make changes as you feel necessary
- Leave comments
- Join the centralnotice-admins mailing list
- Feel free to contact me to discuss this further via: my talk page, jseddonwikimedia.org or on IRC (Nick: Seddon)
