Trademark agreements[edit]

Hello Del - happy post-Easter! I hope you have as many interesting leftovers as I do...

As there's been some trademark agreement discussion here lately, two questions for you:

  • Does WMDE have a TM agreement with the WMF, and would you be willing to post it to Meta?
  • Would you mind publishing the original draft "third party trademark agreement" draft from Internal (from 2007) to here?

Hope to see you soon. SJ talk  22:39, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Bonjour Sam, yes, I do have leftovers. They consist of much chocolate, to be precise. ;-)
Where's the discussion happening? Or are you refering to the whole Community logo debacle?
  • Where should I post the third party thingie (if I post it ;))?
  • WMDE does have a trademark agreement, if nothing else through the Chapter agreement. I'll look into it. notafish }<';> 00:51, 6 April 2013 (UTC)
Ahh, we actually found and used a chocolate seder plate this year (!) which was a nice combination. Leftovers are more eggs and stew, however.
Yes, it is debaculous: see the bottom of Talk:Community Logo
Please post the third-party thing (and any update about WM-DE) as a subpage of Trademark Agreements. I'm also checking with the WMF to see how many TM agreements exist; it would be a pity if there weren't any since we've talked about the possibility so often. Warmly, SJ talk  01:22, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

The first wiki-concert[edit]

Hi! Please express your opinion on the Grants:WM UA/Free Vocal Music concert, as the wiki-concert is planned on May, 15, and we need to know the GAC decision at least a day in advance. Thank you! WMUA Executive Director --Perohanych (talk) 21:37, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

Request for comments[edit]

Hi Notafish, I'd like to solicit your comment on our pending grants:

Your recent upload[edit]

Hi Delphine, please could you move the file you just uploaded to Commons instead? We're in the process of discussing the potential restriction of all local file uploads so if you'd like to comment on Babel please do, your thoughts would be appreciated! Thehelpfulone 14:04, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Heh thank you, and thanks for leaving your comments on Babel too. Thehelpfulone 18:24, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

The Signpost[edit]

Dear Delphine,

I've emailed you on a Signpost matter.

Kind regards, Tony (talk) 02:52, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi Tony, I'll be sending you my answers, as well as posting them here. Best, notafish }<';> 12:54, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Important announcement: Election delayed by one week[edit]

The Election Committee regrets to advise that it is necessary to delay the start of voting in the WMF Elections 2013 for one week. This delay is being implemented for three reasons:

  • We have been unable to verify that the list of eligible voters is complete and that all voters meet the published criteria
  • We have been unable to verify that the SecurePoll setups for the election are properly functioning
  • The voter interfaces have not been translated and are not currently available in any language other than English, thus disadvantaging Wikimedians who do not read English.

The following changes are now made to the Election timeline:

  • 8-22 June 2013: elections
  • 23-25 June 2013: vote-checking
  • 25-28 June: publication of results.

For the Election Committee, Risker (talk) 21:03, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the info. notafish }<';> 08:52, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Reformulate is the answer[edit]

As a result of your irresponsible encouragement to even more archives reading, I found this gem of yours and copied it on wiki. By the way, it's amusing how small the current drama about superprotect is compared to the summer 2010 drama around interwikis (which makes sense, because interwikis are more important). I wonder if in 4 years from now there will be any useful essay/lesson to be extracted from current conversations; my fear is that nowadays people don't even bother writing their thoughts, because they're too disillusioned... and that's even worse than the danger of trolls and flames, I think. --Nemo 12:49, 13 September 2014 (UTC) P.s.: I still have your letter here on my desk, next to my hand.

Nemo, thanks for this :). You can find a longer post about this (in French :P) here: http://notablog.notafish.com/post/2007/05/24/183-conflict-resolution-ce-dont-je-me-souviens

How can we improve Wikimedia grants to support you better?[edit]

Hi! The Wikimedia Foundation would like your input on how we can reimagine Wikimedia Foundation grants to better support people and ideas in your Wikimedia project.

After reading the Reimagining WMF grants idea, we ask you to complete this survey to help us improve the idea and learn more about your experience. When you complete the survey, you can enter to win one of five Wikimedia globe sweatshirts!

In addition to taking the the survey, you are welcome to participate in these ways:

This survey is in English, but feedback on the discussion page is welcome in any language.

With thanks,

I JethroBT (WMF), Community Resources, Wikimedia Foundation.

(Opt-out Instructions) This message was sent by I JethroBT (WMF) (talk · contribs) through MediaWiki message delivery. 01:24, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

Last call for WMF grants feedback![edit]

Hi, this is a reminder that the consultation about Reimagining WMF grants is closing on 8 September (0:00 UTC). We encourage you to complete the survey now, if you haven't yet done so, so that we can include your ideas.

With thanks,

I JethroBT (WMF), Community Resources, Wikimedia Foundation.

Did you ever attend Wikimania with your money? Talk to us![edit]

TL;DR: Fill a short Wikimania survey, it takes 5 min.

Hi, I'm writing you because you are listed in Wikimania/Frequent attendees. As you probably know by now, Wikimania 2016 Esino Lario wants to achieve a Wikimania format which allows people to "get things done" and leave the conference fully satisfied with the result of their investment of time and other resources (see pillars 2 and 4: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimania_2016_bids/Esino_Lario/Pillars ). For this purpose, we consider all audiences (see https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimania_2016_bids/Esino_Lario/Program#Target ).

Participants other than scholarship recipients and reimbursed representatives are one group we heard very little from, but we think they are important because: 1) they have financial resources and help make the Wikimania budget sustainable; 2) they have motivation to share and ideas on what makes Wikimania valuable.

We set up a form mainly to collect names of some such people and talk with them later: if you provide your contact, we may write you on this topic. We may release aggregate data from the resposes; data will be handled by us and the Wikimania 2016 fiscal sponsor "Ecomuseo delle Grigne" (under EU law). Please fill the whole form, it's short!

Feel free to forward this invite to anyone.

Thanks,
Federico Leva and Martin Rulsch

Please sign new Wikimedia confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information by 31 December[edit]

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

Wmf logo vert pms.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 OTRS volunteers sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have been identified as an OTRS volunteer and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy. If you do not sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015, you will lose your OTRS access. OTRS volunteers have a specific agreement available, if you have recently signed the general confidentiality agreement for another role (such as CheckUser or Oversight), you do not need to sign the general agreement again, but you will still need to sign the OTRS agreement.

Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. 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@wikimedia.org). Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain your OTRS access. 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,
Gregory Varnum (User:GVarnum-WMF), Wikimedia Foundation
