Welcome to Meta![edit]

Hello Millars, and welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there).

RE: Estatutos[edit]

Hola Santi. Efectivamente, estarán en el RRI. La idea, que nuestros asesores legales (¡qué bien queda!) creen mucho mejor, es que los estatutos sean sólo un "esqueleto", que se desarrolle en el reglamento. El tema de las agrupaciones locales ha sido el leivmotiv de estos días, y el tema de los socios "cadetes" (que no llevarán ese nombre), está en la mesa. Nuestra idea es abrir ahora un periodo de preguntas, sugerencias y cambios en los estatutos, para que todo el mundo tenga palabra, así que si tienes algo, no lo dudes... En otro orden de cosas, sé que andarás muy liado hasta final de curso... ¿cuándo podré hacerte alguna proposición indecente ;)? Un abrazo, --Lucien leGrey (m · es) 14:40, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

L'afirmació és una evidència empírica que es demostra amb fets i números. A més a més, com tu mateix has dit i ja adverteixo a l'explicació: és el meu pensament i l'exposo honestament perquè la meva tasca com a viquipedista es pugui comprovar com a no tendenciosa sinó empirista, sempre escrivint la veritat referenciada encara que a mi no m'agradi. A més a més, trobo la teva petició molt fora de lloc.--Galazan 10:25, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Dèficit fiscal al País Valencià, les Illes Balears i Catalunya publicat pel mateix govern espanyol no fa pas gaires anys i confirmat per estudis d'universitats diverses, prohibició expressa de les seleccions catalanes, negació expressa de traduir la documentació oficial europea a la llengua catalana que és una de les llengües espanyoles, denúncies constants de funcionaris espanyols en terres de parla catalana que es neguen a atendre la ciutadania si se'ls parla en la llengua pròpia, per no parlar dels constants insults que es dirigeixen a nosaltres des de la premsa i les televisions espanyoles al llarg de l'any. Això són fets i si no els coneixes deu ser perquè vius a l'Argentina. No cal que m'ho tornis a demanar, l'evidència no s'argumenta sinó que s'exposa.--Galazan 10:43, 18 November 2010 (UTC)


Movement roles discussions[edit]

Dear Millars,

I welcome you to participate in discussions about the roles in Wikimedia's movement, and to comment on the proposals for two new group models. If there are topics here that interest you, this work is also open to all. movement roles: targets SJ talk | translate   23:58, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

We will meet in the #wikimedia channel, most likely. I'll certainly be in that chan. If you are interested in some of the targets, please list your name next to 1 or 2 that you might want to work on once your exams are done! SJ talk | translate   10:03, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Fundraising translation feedback[edit]

Hey Millars,

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 Spanish 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.

Many Thanks

WLM Writing challenge highlighted in learning pattern[edit]

Hi Millars, I added some quotes from WM Spain's reports on the WLM writing challenge to a learning pattern on how to Increase number of photos in use. If you have a few minutes, it would be great if you could add any other lessons you learned or important tips for others to consider if they plan their own post WLM writing challenge. I was really impressed by how well your team's project went last year, so thank you and congratulations on that. --KHarold (WMF) (talk) 21:33, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

@KHarold (WMF): Thank you. I'll share this with out team and in case we had any idea, we'll write it to you. This year we want to do a writing contest but only for a few languages (languages spoken in Spain and Portugal) to improve articles about natural sites and use images from Wiki Loves Earth. Regards. --Millars (talk) 18:07, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
That sounds like a great idea. I look forward to hearing about how writing about WLE goes, and if there are any important differences in how the contest gets organized. --KHarold (WMF) (talk) 18:19, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Comunicado oficial de Wikimedia España sobre el Princesa de Asturias[edit]

Hola Millars, ha dejado en la EL (Enciclopedia Libre) un mensaje en nombre de Wikimedia España un usuario que firma como Danilo; no me consta que haya nadie de la directiva que responda a ese nombre de usuario (además, no he localizado a nadie que tenga ese nick en wp:es o en meta), por lo que he preferido confirmar la identidad, para evitar una posible suplantación que después pudiera dar problemas, ya que el mensaje en sí no comporta ninguno. Si no te importa, infórmame sobre quién es, para agradecerle la nota si es quien dice o, en su caso, tomar las cautelas oportunas si no. A todo esto, enhorabuena por el premio, he disfrutado viendo a Lourdes recogiéndolo. Recibe un cordial saludo.--Jatrobat (talk) 05:13, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

Disappointed at Monuments of Spain Challenge 2014[edit]

I am a lot disappointed after participating in the Monuments of Spain Challenge 2014. It has been one year since the challenge ended and we have still not received anything. I think you guys could have just organized an edit-a-thon with barnstars only. --Satdeep Gill (talk) 13:46, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

WLE Writing Contest[edit]

Hi, Millars. I am Asturio Cantabrio. I took part in WLE Writing Contest. I am in trouble.

I overlooked the second half of "Rules". I felt sure that "all landscapes in Spain and Portugal are the subject", but actually not. I reported 600 points, but if you have check my report, my points will certainly decrease.

I did not mean to do it. What should I do? Should I report over again? Should not I do anything?--Asturio Cantabrio (talk) 15:07, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for holding this interesting event, and thank you for replying. I will wait until you completely checked all participants's points.--Asturio Cantabrio (talk) 18:41, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Inspire Campaign on content curation & review[edit]

WPCube.png

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)

Participate in the Inspire Campaign and help address harassment![edit]

NounProject Leaves.png

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,

From Wikimania 2016[edit]

Hi Millars,

Hope you are fine.

As asked by you, I posted a request message on your Spanish Wikipedia user talk. I hope to receive a positive reply from you as discussed in Esino Lario. --Muzammil (talk) 17:44, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Ladino[edit]

Creo que si, tienes toda la razón, en el futuro, mientras es necesario que conozcan el idioma, por eso dejo la entrada para que el próximo año el ladino o judeo-español esté contemplado. Saludos.--Marrovi (talk) 16:11, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

Olympics and Paralympics[edit]

Hi. We met during Wikimania-2017 and spoke about Olympics and Paralympics. I want to organize or coorganize some writing thematic week or contest in Ukrainian Wiki. Also I support Bashkir Wikipedia and they are organizing Olympic Wikimarathon now. Do you have any suggestions or ideas of organizing them? Best wishes, --Visem (talk) 12:23, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

Yes, I think global contest is very good idea. If there is a possibility with prices it would be very motivative. I think it's not bad to start from the beginning of Olympics and finish at the end of Paralympics. In Ukrainian Wiki there were many thematic weeks with Olympic games but still there is big gap with content. Even in English Wiki the big problem with content. So I think we should write as more as possible not only about this edition of Olympics, but also about previous. --Visem (talk) 08:23, 17 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi. Thank you for the link to created page. I have added phrase about all the previous editions of Games. Yes, I am a member of WMUA. I want to ask some questions. Should we create page of this contest in Wikipedia (for example in Ukrainian or Bashkir Wikipedia) or anybody can join the contest in every language by the page of contest in Meta? How should we count the input of the participants in every language (because I also want to invite people to join from minority languages)? Who should provide souvenirs for Ukrainian participants: WMUA or WMES? Best wishes, --Visem (talk) 23:16, 23 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi. When we were talking with you yesterday, my coleague from Ukrainian Wiki Antanana has created the page in Ukrainian. I will propose her to integrate it with this contest. Maybe it can became a coordinational page only for people who will write in Ukrainian Wiki. I think such page will be more promotional inside our wiki, because the question of Olympics and Paralimpics is very important for many of our editors. And I like very much the idea for all languages. One more thing I like to do in this stage is to make a translation of this meta page into different languages, but I don't know exactly how this tool works. --Visem (talk) 20:38, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Also there is a proposition to make the event a bit longer (for example in Ukrainian it is up to 25th of March). It will give some opportunities for the participants to work with results of Games and make more qualitive input. --Visem (talk) 21:25, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi! I have just translated the page of the contest into Ukrainian. As far as I understand from the rules, is it only about Winter Games? Articles about Summer Games are not participate? --Visem (talk) 21:17, 3 February 2018 (UTC)

Thank you for your answer. I will ask them if they want to join as organizers. --Visem (talk) 22:43, 3 February 2018 (UTC)

Come join Wikimedia CEE Spring 2018/CEE Women again! <3[edit]

Get a postcard from one of the countries in red :)

Hello, Millars! You receive this message because last year you took part in the CEE Women challenge. This year the challenge repeats, and it will take longer: from now until the end of May (about 10 weeks).

Please, feel invited to visit the page Wikimedia CEE Spring 2018/CEE Women and join the challenge again. Help have more notable women from Central and Eastern Europe in more language versions globally, including Spanish and Catalan. We again have a list of ideas for biographic articles all over the CEE.

What is different this year is that now you can set your own minimal number of articles as a measure of your challenge (i don't advise you to challenge yourself with more than 70 ;) 10-20 is perfect!). Also, you can receive as a prize a postcard not only from Bulgaria (as in 2017), but also from a list of countries from CEE and around the world. Apart of being a receiver, you can also opt to be a sender of postcards from your country to some of the other participants! That would also be awesome!

Thank you in advance for any contribution you make to CEE Women, and for spreading the word in your local wiki community! Love, Vassia / Spiritia 18:20, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

CEE Spring 2018 Postcard[edit]

Dear Santi,

I want to thank you for the postcard that you have sent me regarding my contribution during CEE Spring 2018/ CEE Women! It really motivates me to write more women's biographies on Wikipedia. Warm hugs from Tirana :) --Kristina Millona (talk) 17:42, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

[Wikipedia & Education User Group] Updates: November 2018[edit]

Greetings,

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.

Kind regards
