Gender gap/women on wikipedia month

Thanks for jumping in and creating that page. Just wondering if you think we should start a category at this point? Steven Walling at work 00:28, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Sure, good idea, Steven. Anything that might help to get things noticed. SlimVirgin (talk) 03:07, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decitions

The Wikimedia Foundation recently created a new feature, "superprotect" status. The purpose is to prevent pages from being edited by elected administrators -- but permitting WMF staff to edit them. It has been put to use in only one case: to protect the deployment of the Media Viewer software on German Wikipedia, in defiance of a clear decision of that community to disable the feature by default, unless users decide to enable it.

If you oppose these actions, please add your name to this letter. If you know non-Wikimedians who support our vision for the free sharing of knowledge, and would like to add their names to the list, please ask them to sign an identical version of the letter on change.org.

I'm notifying you because you participated in one of several relevant discussions. -Pete F (talk) 22:20, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Community discussion on harassment reporting

There are many current proposals as part of the 2015 Inspire Campaign related to harassment management. I’ve created a page, Grants:IdeaLab/Community discussion on harassment reporting meant to serve as a central space where the various stakeholders in these proposals and other community members can discuss which methods might serve our community best so that we can unify our ideas into collective action. I encourage you to join the conversation and contribute your ideas! OR drohowa (talk) 01:21, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Harassment workshop

Greetings! You are receiving this message because, at some point in the past, you have participated in a discussion around the topic of harassment. The Support and Safety team is holding a series of consultations gathering feedback on the best potential solutions to the problem. The next stage is a workshop where we hope to narrow the focus to individual actionable ideas and explore how to bring some of these ideas to life.

Best regards, the Support and Safety team via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 16:35, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

Knowledge Engine/FAQ

hello! I am sorry for being (maybe) too bold. organising the page by users does not seem to help, we can repeat ourselves and it would be a mess :) --アンタナナ 22:27, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

Hi Antanana, I've replied on that talk page. SarahSV talk 22:46, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

Question about the Board minutes

[copied from User talk:Pundit] Hi Dariusz, could you please look into the issue of which Board meeting approved the 2015–2016 budget of $2,445,873 for the Knowledge Engine/Discovery? (See grant application, p. 9, which says the budget obtained Board approval.)

I've asked about it twice on the mailing list, [1][2] and I've looked through the minutes, but I can't find it. I'm hoping that, as a member of the Board Governance Committee, you'll be in a position to look into it further. Best wishes, SarahSV talk 01:53, 18 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Hi Sarah, regarding the budget, it is clearly within the focus of the Audit Committee (the Governance Committee is basically for board composition, good practices, etc.). I was not a member of the Board if the grant was discussed in the summer. I will ask as well. Pundit (talk) 15:27, 18 February 2016 (UTC)
Dariusz, thanks for the reply. I've copied my question here to keep the discussion in one place. I was thinking it would be a matter for the Board Governance Committee because it's about votes not being recorded.
Anyway, thanks for asking about it, and also thank you in general for making yourself available to answer questions. It's very much appreciated, especially as I know you must be busy with all this. SarahSV talk 01:26, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

Inspire Campaign on content curation & review

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!

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,
