Thank you for your participation in the WikiGap Challenge![edit]


Now, we have finalized the results from the WikiGap Challenge. You can find the general and top results here. I want to thank you for your contribution, which together with the other participants have created a tremendous and long lasting impact for the visibility of women on Wikipedia.

We want to give you a barnstar for your participation, to praise your efforts for a better visibility of women on Wikipedia!

We will analyze the challenge and the way it works closely, to see how we can improve it for next year. It would be very valuable for us if you wanted to share your views on the challenge, especially when it comes to: the point system, the focus, and the adding of the list from UN Human Rights. You can send your answers to!

I hope you found the challenge exciting, and that you want to participate next year as well!

Naming contest vote[edit]

Hi. Thank you for participating in the vote. Unfortunately there is a bug in the RTL code - for usernames that are written in RTL, it did not properly reverse the numbering when saving. I have edited your entry, and fixed the numbering. Please could you check your vote at Abstract Wikipedia/Wiki of functions naming contest/Votes, and confirm that your favourite option is at the left-hand side? Thank you very much, and we will definitely fix or change the gadget in the future. Sorry for the confusion. I hope you have a good week. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 21:57, 10 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for participation in Ukraine's Cultural Diplomacy Month![edit]

Hi, ساندرا!

Thank you very much for participating in Ukraine's Cultural Diplomacy Month! My apologies for not sending this message sooner – but be assured, your contributions are very valuable!
The organisers welcome you participation. We hope you had fun! Some users faced the notability issues of the suggested articles; we recognise that the list of suggested articles wasn't flawless.
The project is not ended until all worthy participants receive their souvenirs! There will be another message from the organising team soon about this.
Stay safe, we appreciate you being a Wikipedian that you are -- ViraMotorko (WMUA) (talk) 09:51, 5 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

A big thank you for organizing #WikiForHumanRights! And please give us feedback![edit]

Both UN Human Rights and the WMF team are really grateful. Initial data suggests that this year we doubled the volume of content created and grew the campaign in languages and geographies. This kind of activation only works when we have local-organizers doing targeted outreach to their communities.

We are still learning how to organize this campaign, would like your feedback. Please fill out this survey at: this google form.

We will use the summary of findings and recommendations from the survey for the report on the campaign and for designing next year’s campaign. Our hope is to support more decentralized events, potentially with less experienced organizers -- so we need your help understanding what worked, what didn’t and what kinds of preparation we need to help communities with next year.

Please note that the collected information in this survey will be treated as in WikiForHumanRights Organizer Feedback Privacy Statement.--MBakni (WMF) (talk) 19:15, 15 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hi! I'm contacting you as one of the participants in the Wikimedia Summit 2022, to kindly ask for your feedback through a 5-10 minute survey to evaluate 'Baserow' (note: the survey is on a Google form).

See the presentation of the project here. the survey has been done in English, and is currently published in the French/Italian/Ukrainian wikipedia We were planning to do it in arabic as well, but the colleague in charge could not find the time (it's quite a long work).
