IdeaLab logo dark orange.png

Hi there,

I’m Jethro, and I’m seeking your help in deciding topics for new IdeaLab campaigns that could be run starting next year. These campaigns aim to bring in proposals and solutions from communities that address a need or problem in Wikimedia projects. I'm interested in hearing your preferences and ideas for campaign topics!

Here’s how to participate:

Take care,

I JethroBT (WMF), Community Resources, Wikimedia Foundation. 03:33, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

Future IdeaLab Campaigns results[edit]

IdeaLab badge 1.png

Last December, I invited you to help determine future ideaLab campaigns by submitting and voting on different possible topics. I'm happy to announce the results of your participation, and encourage you to review them and our next steps for implementing those campaigns this year. Thank you to everyone who volunteered time to participate and submit ideas.

With great thanks,

Inspire Campaign on content curation & review[edit]


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)

Open Call for Individual Engagement Grants[edit]

IEG barnstar 2.png

Greetings! The Individual Engagement Grants (IEG) program is accepting proposals until April 12th to fund new tools, research, outreach efforts, and other experiments that enhance the work of Wikimedia volunteers. Whether you need a small or large amount of funds (up to $30,000 USD), IEGs can support you and your team’s project development time in addition to project expenses such as materials, travel, and rental space.

With thanks, I JethroBT (WMF), Community Resources 15:57, 31 March 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,

Plan d'action Wikimédia France[edit]

Bonjour ! Je me suis permise de modifier ta proposition (ce que tu avais mis en contexte relève pour moi plus de l'impact) en y ajoutant la position de la Fondation, j'espère que ça te va :) Léna (talk) 09:54, 23 December 2016 (UTC) Merci Lena.

Mise à jour de la page Femmes[edit]

Salut miss. Pourrait-tu mettre à jour la page Women afin d'y ajouter les projets francophones actuels (ou légèrement passés), a priori, les sans pages et tes ateliers ? Merci Anthere (talk) Salut à toi Anthere aussi! Je le ferai promis. --Nattes à chat (talk) 09:03, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Adjusted text[edit]

There has been a request to inform all who voted in the RfC about interlinking accounts involved with paid editing about the following adjustment in the "statement of issue" on Sept 18th, 2017.

It was clarified that this effort will help deal not only with impersonation of specific Wikipedians but also claims of being in good standing made by those who are not.[1] Thanks. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 19:59, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

Hi Natasha! It was my pleasure to meet you. What did Rémy say? :-) I write him for Thursday, I let you know. Have a nice Sunday --CristianNX (talk) 12:05, 14 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi again. We will have a call all together about WAF in the next future, ok? Hear from you soon. --CristianNX (talk) 16:13, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

OK so yes we will indeed later! Postponed, bad luck. Cheers, --Nattes à chat (talk) 01:13, 17 January 2018 (UTC) I have gone forward with the idea of listing witches in the alpine regions. We have advanced quite a lot, enough to be able to propose a list of content to be updated during a WikiAlpenforum editathon. See here:ères_notoires?veaction=edit&section=2#Wikidata. When are we having that skype call? Poke @CristianNX, Opsylac, Rémy WMFr, and Camelia.boban:. We need discuss if we can have a wikialpen forum in Samoens or at the french wikiconvention in Grenoble. I'm pinging Camelia as she could be interested in the subject too! --Nattes à chat (talk) 06:58, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

Yes, I'm interested in this topic ;-) --Camelia (talk) 09:43, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
Just to let you know: we know have a test version of the map that will be able to include language links and be updated automatically throught listeria bot and lua thanks to the work of User:0x010C. The test is here :, So we are ready for a multilingual editathon (maybe also an online contest?) for WikiAlpenForum! We just need to enter all the witches of our list on wikidata with the geolocalisation of their death or sentence. --Nattes à chat (talk) 20:55, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Wikiloves Women 2019[edit]

Dear Nattes à chat,

The TWUG on[edit]

Hello Nattes à chat

A few months ago, WMF opened a new discussion space. Since our user group has some difficulties to communicate (not everyone sees the messages that are posted on Talk:Wiktionary/Tremendous_Wiktionary_User_Group), I asked for a dedicated forum for the TWUG to be opened. It's happening here (there is no topic so far).

From now on, I invite you to follow the category to be informed as soon as a new topic is created. Pamputt (talk) 18:48, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks Pamputt I very recently started to use the space. Nattes à chat (talk) 21:26, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

AfroCine: Join the Months of African Cinema this October![edit]


After a successful first iteration of the Months of African Cinema last year, we are happy to announce that it will be happening again this year, starting from October 1! In the 2018 edition of the contest, about 600 Wikipedia articles were created in at least 8 languages. There were also contributions to Wikidata and Wikimedia commons, which brought the total number of wikimedia pages created during the contest to over 1,000. About 9 in-person events were also organised for the edit-a-thon in different parts of the world.

The contest is organized by a Wikimedia project called The AfroCine Project, which is dedicated to improving the coverage of the history, works, people, places, and events, that are associated with the cinema, theatre and arts of Africa, African countries, the Caribbean, and the diaspora.

If you would love to join this exciting event, please list your username as a participant on the English Wikipedia contest page. If you would love to lead this contest for your country or community, please list your name in the coordinators' page here. The rapid grants team would be accepting proposals throughout October and November, in case you'd need funds to run local edit-a-thons or some other activities related to this event. Upon listing your name on the coordinators' page, you'd be contacted to talk about the resources you'd need to run the event in your community. You can also contact me directly for any clarifications.

Finally, We also need volunteers to handle some aspects of the AfroCine project. These aspects include:

  1. Community Liaison: This role essentially involves closely engaging with local communities to support their activities within the scope of Afrocine.
  2. Communications: This involves the communications aspects of the project. Sharing relevant information on mailing lists and social media would be the responsibility of this person.
  3. MAC Jury: This role involves joining the jury of Months of African Cinema contest. We need as many people as we can get 🙂.
  4. Tools: Going forward, we would need relevant tools to better track the metrics and also analyse the general impact of these events. We are calling for Wikimedia volunteers who can navigate wikimedia tools that can be useful for the project.

If you would love to help with any of these roles, or some other roles that have not been mentioned, please contact me directly or on: samoye_(_AT_)

If you have further questions, complaints, suggestions, etc., please reach out to me personally or right here or the project talkpages.

Thank you!--Jamie Tubers (talk) 17:10, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Nattes à Chats ! thank so much for your endorsement in Wiki Droits Humains project :) I will keep you updated, and really hope to see you soon. --Tonpseudo (talk) 15:26, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

Withdrawal of the Wiki Droits Humains Grant application[edit]

Hi Nattes à chats. Thank you for endorsing WDH grant application. Due to the covid19, I decided to withdraw it for the moment (the budget mostly aimed to organize offline events we aren'ty able to organise yet with this crise), until we are in a better position and situation to make it happen. We will still have some few activities online. We will let you know the follow-ups on the project page Wiki Droits Humains on wikipédia fr. Thank you again for your support. --Tonpseudo (talk) 08:41, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

Editing other users' comments[edit]

Hi. Please refrain from editing the comments of other users. If you believe they are violating the civility policy, or other policies, please leave a note at Meta:RFH and administrators can take a look. Thank you for your understanding, Vermont (talk) 22:10, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

ː Sorry, I was not aware that deleting rude comments was an offense. I wrote a complaint, thank you for the link. I hope that you also adress a message to the people using derogatory terms and expressions as this does not promote a friendly environment. Putting back such words as these ones for example, is that permitted? 22:39, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

I in fact edit-conflicted with that IP address user; I was about to undo your edit myself. It does not appear to me to be in violation of any policies or guidelines. Though the words themselves are not professional, it is not uncivil. Vermont (talk) 22:58, 18 June 2020 (UTC)
So such expressions as "in pissing off all the people creating contents for them, for free. Next step is spitting in the face" are acceptable? May I point to Etiquette stating that "Civility, respect: Users should respect other contributors and their efforts, and should never attack or belittle another user. Irony or sarcasm are sometimes seen as uncivil, since it may be difficult to understand in text-based communication that the words should not be taken at face value. See Incivility.". I think that writing that someone's behavior equates to "pissing" and "spitting" is in fact beliiting them. I have read this also " Citation "

Removing uncivil comments

  • Strike offensive words or replace them with milder ones on talk pages (this is often seen as controversial, as is refactoring other people’s words)
  • Remove offensive comments on talk pages (since they remain in the page history, anyone can find them again or refer to them later on)
  • Revert an edit with &bot=1, so that the edit made by the offender appears invisible in Recent Changes (do-able on IP contributions, requires technical help for logged-in user)
  • Delete (entirely and permanently) an edit made by the offender (requires technical help)
  • Permanently delete an offensive comment made on the mailing lists (requires technical help)
  • Replace a comment made in an edit summary by another less offensive comment (requires technical help)

So maybe I should have striked the comments? Or removed them? In any case what I did can be tagged controversial, but I cant find any rule stating it is forbidden. If it is not, I should be able to continue because I do think it is aggressive and potentially source of stress for some people allready having to face a great deal of criticism. Nattes à chat (talk) 23:15, 18 June 2020 (UTC)

Request to reformulate your wording[edit]

No, I'm sorry. Awful words are needed to describe awful actions. I suggest you to be more concerned about the latters than the first. Please avoid to arbitrary modify other people messages. "Some people will not want to express themselves here if..." censorship is allowed. --Phyrexian ɸ 23:17, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
