MediaWiki talk:Articlefeedback-field-wellwritten-tip

See. Thanks, Nemo 21:01, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

Thank you!

For doing all those corrections to the Portuguese research pages; really appreciate it! Jwild 07:09, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Meta:Article feedback

The page is linked by the tool in all languages, so it should be translated. Also, the page needs a bit of context, or it's impossible to understand what it's about. Moreover, the "accurate" and "error-free" parts are not translated (everything: the "title", the explanation and the description of different ratings). --Nemo 11:27, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Open Call for 2012 Wikimedia Fellowship Applicants for Kurdish Wiki

Hello, i moved your message to here. its our portal for discussions and opinions. I hope, (in the future) you can send your messages there.--Gomada 12:38, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks - I have fixed the entry in the distribution list. Regards, Tbayer (WMF) 20:23, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Fellowships Engage template

Hi Siko, I made few changes on {{Fellowships Engage}} and deprecated {{FellowshipsNav}}. Tell me if you like it that way. Also feel free to tell anything if you like to include or modify. :) — Tanvir | Talk ] 10:43, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Fellowship project idea pages management

Hello Siko,

I am done with this I think. This is the page where all ideas will be shown and will be categorized automatically (no need to be included links manually). You have to change parameters of {{wm-fellowship}} template (see the documentation on the template page) like this. I hope you will find this system useful. This system is now ready to go live. If you find this useful just tell me and I will implement the new system soon. — Tanvir | Talk ] 14:00, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Wikimania 2012

Hi Siko, will you be attending Wikimania 2012? I would love to have a chat with you at some point. --Thuvack (talk) 07:08, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

Yes, that sounds great, lets do it! I will be there :-) Siko Bouterse (WMF) (talk) 16:18, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

Fellowship

Siko, when you will reopen the application to the fellowship? Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 15:03, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Oi Rodrigo! You would be welcome to submit a fellowship application at any time (right now!). We will review new applications when new spaces open up. There will be a big open call for 2013 Fellowships probably in November, but really you would be welcome to apply anytime as there may be one or 2 spaces for new fellows opening up before 2013. Thanks! Siko (talk) 20:37, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Wikipedians in Residence

Hi Siko. Are you in charge of the WIR program, and if not who is? Also, was the WIR for Harvard cancelled? I don't see it listed on the WIR page. Thanks, Pine 03:21, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Hi Pine! I'm not - no one is really in charge of WiRs as a whole, actually, there isn't really any formal program centered around those roles. WiRs are a pretty organic community-led thing still, an organization decides they want one, a Wikipedian decides they want to help out, and the partnership froms from there. In the Harvard case, it was one of the first times WMF thought about getting formally involved in helping an organization find a WiR. That role does appear to be moving forward with Harvard, but its being handled outside the fellows program now. Sara Lasner is the point person for WMF. I let her know that once they do finalize that role, they should make sure it gets added to the WiR page - thanks for pointing this out :-) Siko (talk) 19:55, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
I think we need to have somebody in charge of the WiRs. Merry chaos is good up to a point, but now we need some more organization, primarily in being able to help volunteers who want to get involved with WiR stuff. --Piotrus (talk) 15:36, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

The page Wikimedia Highlights, July 2012 is available for translation. You can translate it here

The priority of this page is medium.


Note: This time, the "Wikimedia Foundation highlights" section does not include the usual coverage of the most notable work of Foundation staff during that month. Instead, it contains a list of talks given by Foundation staff at Wikimania, summarizing their most important work the year over. It looks like a lot of text, but only the talk titles will need to be translated. The intention is that these titles alone can already give readers a good overview of what the Foundation is working on in general.

The page Fundraising 2012/Translation/Jimmy Appeal is available for translation. You can translate it here

Last years translation/El año pasado, traducción/العام الماضي ترجمة/Прошлогодний перевод

This letter is a new translation request, but re-uses large parts of the 2011 Jimmy Appeal, with slight modifications in the second version.

If the 2011 Jimmy Letter has been translated into your language, you can probably re-use much of it for this translation. :-)
