Dear translators,

I have updated the Eligibility Requirements page for the Project and Event Grants program, and re-organized the information to be more readable, as well as easier to translate.

Your help in bringing this information to different language communities has tremendous value: many people are timid about grants, and having to digest all this relatively-formal information in English makes it even more scary.

Your translations can help more Wikimedians apply for funding, and thereby enable more awesome work to take place around the world. Thank you for your valuable efforts!

Lists of Bienes de interés cultural[edit]

We had a hard day today, but after some talking we have decided to accept Lists of monuments (Bienes de Interés Cultural, Bienes de Relevancia Local and similar ones) for the contest but as one point for each 3000 bytes. Thats one third of the normal rate. The question is that we consider them part of our Challenge's theme, but they can easily be over extended and under worked.

I myself have worked on such lists in es:wiki and doing them right takes time and effort. Of course they are really big when you finish them. On the other hand, by building listings you are marking targets for the other contestants, but that's another story.

You can see our decision reflected on the log.

B25es (talk) 17:48, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

These lists not only list the monuments but also can orientate editors what they need to contribute and clearly distinct which articles still lack. If you take time to review my contributions, in each article I also created the categories and its structure, templates, ... (bigger than you can imagine). I want to be sure that after this challenge, next editors can follow my work easier. To understand shortly, what I did here is to set up a good performance before the content can cover it.
You want to see example. OK, here is a Barcelona cathedral in vi:Nhà thờ chính tòa Barcelona and pa:ਬਾਰਸੀਲੋਨਾ ਗਿਰਜ਼ਾਘਰ. Do you see the differences? At viwiki we have to translate everything until that we can not translate anymore, templates, images caption, and create the categories, when you create an category, you need to create its parent until you meet the existing categories. If you still wonder, why don't you create lists and do exactly what I do and you will understand. I encourage you do it and hope to see you can create all lists. Alphama (talk) 08:33, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
Yes, you need to do that and sort it to at least one category like I did. If you give 1 reference source, that's perfect. I highly appreciate with the correctness of article formats.Alphama (talk) 08:43, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Bienes de Interés Cultural by region[edit]

Murcia is a region and in fact the official name of the Autonomous Community is Región de Murcia (translated in Catalan as Regió de Múrcia). Burgos, for instance, is a province that is part of Autonomous Community of Castile and León. There's no such thing as a Región de Burgos. Another case is Valencia. Valencia is the name of a city -where I happen to live- but also of a province that is part of the Valencian Autonomous Community (which is officially known in Valencian -local Catalan dialect- as Comunitat Valenciana but in the Catalan-speaking Wikipedia is usually known as País Valencià, but that's another rather long story). You cannot list béns d'interés cultural de la Regió de València because it doesn't make sense: most people would think that you're talking about the Valencian Community, but in fact you're just listing the Province of Valencia, and not Alicante and Castellón. In addition, es:wiki uses place names in Spanish, while ca:wiki uses them in Catalan, so in es:wiki my mother was born in Burjasot, while in ca:wiki it is Burjassot. There are many differences, some subtle, some very radical: Onteniente vs Ontinyent. Even the alphabetical is affected: Chirivella becomes Xirivella.

As you can see, translating from Spanish to Catalan is not automatic. In addition, ca:wiki uses provinces for Spain outside the Catalan-speaking areas, but for these they use Comarques, an entirely different kind of entities which are seldom used in es:wiki. I will check what's going on with monuments de la Regió de Múrcia, because apart from it's title, which is correct, I don't think is all that well done.

I understand a fair bit about making lists in Spanish from Catalan. See this one. It took me a several days to do and two more weeks with little details here and there. I'm using it for a personal project and when it's finished no red links will appear. So I can see the relevance of lists.

I find that in general terms things are going all right so I don't think there's any need of such tactics.

Thank you for you understanding.

Commonality[edit]

Dear Satdeep I was born is Oct - So I think is the case with you (if I am not mistaken). In any case our common passion is Wikipedia. What happened is all past - lets bury it and move forward. Let the judges do their work. Lets not judge each other. I noticed some anomalies in many users but I am quiet because ITS NOT MY WORK.Even when you win the editathon, you don't land in a castle - you merely achieve something. Life is short and there are always things better to achieve. So celebrate life. So my best wishes to you and also remember to convey my best wishes to Parveer, his name surfaced needlessly. My deep regards to your father - I met him last year but couldn't meet him this year. Bye!! --Muzammil (talk) 19:03, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Stalinjit[edit]

Hello. I noticed a name in your circle of friends - Stalinjit. This guy, I find was born in 1993, when peace was being restored in your state.

It reminds of another person by the same name born when Punjab was reeling under terrorism. His father was a Marxist. The parents of this person, I remember reading in the newspapers, were killed by dissident groups who barged into the house during during the wee hours. The guy managed to save himself by hiding under the bed and had a traumatic childhood. Do you know this person? Or it is not anomaly to find Pro-Marxist names such as one guy I came across by name Stalinvir Singh? --Muzammil (talk) 17:52, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

Muzammil, Hello Muzammil, Stalinjit is my classmate is M.A. Right now. So this is not the guy you are talking about. Well such names are not very much common but as many people were involved in the Socialist Movement, these are not very rare as well. By the way Muzammil, i texted you on facebook. I wanted to ask if i can organize any outreach event regarding Hindo Wikipedia as well. I have identified 10 interested students in Kurukshetra. They are science students and there lecturer is my friend. I was thinking about doing a little workshop for them in January.--Satdeep gill (talk) 02:06, 3 November 2014 (UTC)
Its a good idea to workshop. In case if you need some support for the program you can approach CIS directly. I've left the organization. --Muzammil (talk) 11:11, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

Monuments of Spain Challenge and Distribution of Prizes to the Winning Participants[edit]

Hello B25es, I haven't received any information on when i will get my prize. --Satdeep gill (talk) 15:27, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Tomorrow I'll meet with the people who do the buying and sending of the prizes. I don't think anybody has recieved anything as far as I know, and time's passing, so thank you for your comment. B25es (talk) 16:48, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
You are welcome. --Satdeep gill (talk) 01:43, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
Hi, pleased to see this conversation between you and Luis Ulzurrun. Did you get any fresh update from him or our friends Alphama / Rauletemunoz, now that the organizers have even published a WMF blog: Inaugural Monuments of Spain Challenge completed and a detailed report on Commons ? --Muzammil (talk) 12:28, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

Hello Sir, Do you have any latest news for me ? --Satdeep gill (talk) 04:56, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Satdeep. I have contacted Laura this morning and she's asking WMES what happens with the prizes. I finished counting in November and I don't know why things are going so slow. Buying and sending had to be the easy part, I think. Laura told me she'd make me know what she finds, because other contestants are contacting her too. She's a very serious person, it's a pity she's not managing the whole prize affair herself. I hope this situation ends soon. B25es (talk) 16:02, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Umepedia and Spain-based Editathons[edit]

Hi, I would like to share my Twitter interaction with Kippelboy who curated WeAreWikipedia handler for sometime. I was surprised to see that for the Catalan editathon, no effort was made to tabulate the winners or to document the event in blog or article at all.
Here, going by Luis Ulzurrun's statements, the organizers have undertaken these two steps, but are not keen or particular to pleasantly conclude the editathon.
How was your experience with Umepedia? --Muzammil (talk) 18:21, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
Well Muzammil, Umepedia Challenge was a well planned competition. They had a selected number of articles that were translated by them into English so that rest of the Wikipedians can create them in their languages. I got the prizes within 15 days. To conclude I would it was a great experience. --Satdeep Gill (talk) 02:10, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Monuments & prizes[edit]

I haven't heard from anyone since a long time...... Was this whole Monument challenge a fake thing ? --Satdeep Gill (talk) 14:47, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

I've been talking with Millars, who is the person who had to have the prizes sent to the winners and he's told me that he has finally ordered them to the Wikimedia Foundation shop. It has to be said that buying the stuff from WMF was decided in order to speed up the process (yeah!). I find all the process quite clumsy, several mistakes have been made... well, quite a mess. I expect the prizes to arrive soon, as it is all getting too long. I don't forget you, you can be sure of that. After all the contest itself happened to be the most consistent part. Let's hope for all this to end soon. B25es (talk) 18:34, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

Sad Message from a dejected winner of this so-called "Monument challenge"[edit]

Hello,

I did not receive anything. I waited for at least 6 months. I did not want to join with that kind of events anymore.

Now, I focus on (---) and some smaller-scale Wikipedias.

Thank you!

User's name and Wikipedia hidden - but this guy was a better performer in the declared result than me. Thanks to B25es and his entire Spanish team. --Muzammil (talk) 15:29, 8 March 2015 (UTC)

Hello. I'm very sorry, the only guilty is me. B25es and Laura Fiorucci collected data from challenge winners and me from WLM winners. But till not having all of them I didn't want to send the information to WMF. Wikimedia Foundation has to send the prizes of the challenge and some gifts for WLM. At the end I had to send the information without the information about two winners. However, we collected data for more than 30 people. The challenge was cellebrated in October, so the winners were announced by the end of November. Now, we are at the begining of March, so this is Decembe, January and February, so three months and not 6. I'm very sorry for the long delay, but WMF has the information and the prizes will arrive. Please, be patience. I've always thought that we are working on Wikipedia as volunteers because we think in it, so, some weeks to receive the prizes could be forgiven. I know that you can be irritated, I know that I did some mistakes, but we did this challenge with hope and looking for fun for everybody. We've learned from this and we'll try not to do the same mistakes. --Millars (talk) 23:49, 10 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi Atcovi, don't worry I am not offended. Well, I just wanted to contact that User as he has been contributing Punjabi related content to English wikibooks and I wanted to ask him to contribute to Punjabi Wikipedia and related content. --Satdeep Gill (talk) 04:20, 10 January 2016 (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,

Invitation to "target countries" discussion[edit]

Hello, Satdeep Gill! Since you've been closely involved with the Indian community for a long time, we're inviting you to a discussion on "target countries". You can help the product team at the Wikimedia Foundation create a new list of countries and metrics to replace the "global south" concept in our process with something more relevant. Interested?

2016 Community Wishlist Survey[edit]

Hi,

You’re getting this message because you participated in the 2015 Community Wishlist Survey and we want to make sure you don't miss it this year – or at least can make the conscious choice to ignore if it you want to. The 2015 survey decided what the Community Tech team should work on during 2016. It was also the focus of Wikimedia hackathons and work by other developers. You can see the status of wishes from the 2015 wishlist at 2015 Community Wishlist Survey/Results.

The 2016 Community Wishlist Survey is now open for wishes. You can create proposals until November 20. You will be able to vote on which wishes you think are best or most important between November 28 and December 12. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 11:17, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

Maithili Wikimedians Mission 10[edit]

Kashmiri Wikipedia[edit]

Hi, Satdeep. I noticed you were just reappointed as administrator in ks: and wikt:ks:. Congratulations!(?) I hope you can help me.

I'm an administrator at Incubator, trying to clean things up, and I found a Wikipedia test project coded Wp/kas there. Essentially, it consists of about two dozen pages of Kashmiri in Devanagari script. I wonder if you (or someone else there you can point me to) would mind having a look at what is there and tell me whether any of it is useful to you.

I noticed (from the Wiktionary page) that there is a Devanagari Kashmiri Encyclopedia on Wikia. For all I know, that was built from this source, but there is nothing at Incubator that says so. If the content we have on Incubator would be useful to someone, we can export it to an XML file and send it to you. If it already exists on Wikia, then we can safely and comfortably delete it—and then simply replace the front page with a soft redirect to Wikia. You let me know (here or on Incubator) what you'd prefer.

Thanks in advance for your help. StevenJ81 (talk) 20:28, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Since I haven't heard from you, I'm going to assume that these pages are unneeded, so I will nominate them for deletion. Please contact me promptly (here or Incubator) if you disagree. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:17, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
Hi @StevenJ81: I would like to apologize for being too busy to check and confirm whether the content is valuable or not. Can you give me a week and then I will report to you ? Thanks for understanding.--Satdeep Gill (talk) 15:10, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
Sure. (RfD's on Incubator run ten days anyway.) StevenJ81 (talk) 15:51, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
Satdeep, any further thoughts here? I'm about ready to go ahead and delete unless you want these pages. StevenJ81 (talk) 20:51, 31 January 2017 (UTC)
Yes, sure. Go ahead and delete them.--Satdeep Gill (talk) 03:50, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

A discussion day with Kumeyaay community in San Diego is being planned for May.

3. Funding

We've got financial support for 2017!

  • WMF grant: 6-month funding (February-July 2017) was approved to pilot our approach to mapping knowledge and creating Wikipedia content with the Dalit community and global women's human rights defenders. Thanks for all your endorsements!
  • Shuttleworth Fellowship: Anasuya is a Shuttleworth Fellow! This means we'll be able to spend more time organizing, and have support for convenings, campaign infrastructure, etc.

4. Wikimedia Strategy

Marking languages "eligible"[edit]

Hi, Satdeep. By custom, usually the LangCom member acknowledges that s/he is making a change like this by adding a comment (using |comment = , including a signature). Since you are changing |status =, you can do it on the same edit. It just makes it a little easier on the rest of us to keep track. Thanks. StevenJ81 (talk) 18:50, 30 August 2017 (UTC)

This message is to inform you that based on the input received from the user group members and the founding members, it was agreed that the Wikipedia Library User Group’s name be reconsidered by a voting process. As a valued member of the user group, we’d like to invite you to vote on the list of potential names. You can vote by following this link. The poll will run for a timeframe of two weeks.
