The Wikimaps User Group has now been officially recognized!
The Partnerships and Global Reach team from the Wikimedia Foundation will be hosting few sessions during Wikimedia Conference 2017 in Berlin.
Session 3: Sharing talks: Awareness / Reading
We'd like to invite you to join us in planning, leading and participating in any or all of these sessions. It would be great to have a diverse set of experiences and insights as we guide the audience to the goal of the session. Particularly, we want the session participants to have the following outcomes:
They walk away with concrete ideas on how they can raise awareness in their country through partnerships and how they can find such partners. They will recognize when a partnership is in trouble, learn how to address it during program design, and be aware of exit strategies to deal with such situations. They will have good examples and motivation to replicate success stories in their local contexts.
Would you like to join us? We will be happy to chat with you anytime this week to quickly coordinate how we can be working together. Please let us know as soon as possible. Let me know if you have any questions. You can reach me at rayyakkannuwikimedia.org
Thanks, Ravishankar Ayyakkannu, Manager, Strategic Partnerships, Asia, Wikimedia Foundation. --22:34, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

I received your mail. Thanks for the invitation. But I am kinda in the dark about how this User Group thingy works. I would like to help in but I might need some time to go through the things first. --Lee (talk) 14:58, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

Rehman Hope you are well.

Wikimedia diversity - What happened at the conference and how to follow up
We are messaging you now because you signed up as an ambassador for Wikimedia Diversity Conference 2017. We are sharing this message far and wide, so apologies in advance if you are receiving this message twice.
During the conference, we dedicated a full afternoon to discussing the strategic direction and what it means for the work on diversity in the Wikimedia movement. Compiling the outcomes of those conversations, we summarized the key problems and solutions identified, and we created a summary statement. But the conversation is far from over! We still need to hear from diversity ambassadors: (1) what does working for diversity mean at your local context?; (2) what are the needs that should be addressed; (3) what resources are relevant for these identified needs?
We know that diversity gains meaning in context, and this is why we need to hear every voice. Please take a few minutes to go over to the diversity conversation page and add your comments.
If you’d like to stay in touch, and share your experience working for diversity with others, add your profile on our group here.
New beta feature on first wikis: the FileExporter
Hi! Thanks again for your input on the new “Move files to Commons” feature. On June 25th, it was released as a beta feature to first wikis: mediawiki.org and German, Persian and Arabic Wikipedia. Some improvements have been made since. If you want to export local files from these first wikis to Wikimedia Commons, you’ll need to enable the beta feature “FileExporter” on these wikis. Details: meta:WMDE_Technical_Wishes/Move_files_to_Commons
Hello, a while ago you participated in a feedback round about a proposal how accidental clicks on the rollback link could be avoided. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts and ideas!
Looking at the feedback and the rollback situation in different wikis, the development team decided how to approach this wish: As a default, most wikis won’t have a confirmation. But users who wish to have one, can enable it in their preferences, which will add a confirmation prompt to the rollback link on the diff page and on the list pages. The prompt won’t be a pop-up, but an inline prompt like for the thanks confirmation. You can read more about the planned solution and what influenced this decision on the project page. -- Best, Johanna Strodt (WMDE) (talk) 09:46, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
