This is an update from the Wikimedia Affiliations Committee. Translations are available.

The Wikimedia Affiliations Committee is pleased to introduce the launch of the Wikimedia Affiliates mailing list, which is basically a place for all the affiliates (chapters, thematic organizations, user groups) to discuss issues related to affiliates, make announcements to other affiliates, and collaborate on activities and community-wide events. The idea is to help facilitate the dialogue affiliates across our movement, plus collaborative discussions like community-wide activities, joint edit-a-thons, regional conferences, blog/report posts, or other communications from affiliates.

Each Wikimedia movement affiliate is allocated three spots on the mailing list. All affiliates may contact the Affiliations Committee to request additional spots if needed.

Please find a bit more information on Meta-Wiki and do not hesitate to contact the Affiliations Committee if you have further questions.

Thank you - Wikimedia Affiliations Committee

How many more will continue holding the name of a popular artist Alexander Tatarnikov? It's chaos, even persecution, this author did not do anything bad to anyone. It was not spam. Works of this artist is very strong and show good. There is a personal dislike for this man? We ask unlock this name............

The name given to that person at birth wrong? It does not contain anything wrong. Please help remove this block in the creation of articles. Josepher444

I was not involved with this decision. You will want to bring it up on the talk page for the title blacklist. Thank you. --Varnent (talk)(COI) 23:21, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

I'd really like to see this issue resolved in a positive way. Here are pictures of this author:, - also good, these pictures are not anything bad. This is because they now can not write articles? Due to the fact that it shows the Mother of God? Move to blacklist discussion is possible, but will it help?

You are welcome to try. --Varnent (talk)(COI) 23:32, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

I moved the discussion in the black list. There may of course refuse to release, may not like man for personal reasons and did may not be important that this good picture in the Christian version.

This is a message regarding the proposed 2015 Free Bassel banner. Translations are available.

Hi everyone,

This is to inform all Wikimedia contributors that a straw poll seeking your involvement has just been started on Meta-Wiki.

As some of your might be aware, a small group of Wikimedia volunteers have proposed a banner campaign informing Wikipedia readers about the urgent situation of our fellow Wikipedian, open source software developer and Creative Commons activist, Bassel Khartabil. An exemplary banner and an explanatory page have now been prepared, and translated into about half a dozen languages by volunteer translators.

We are seeking your involvement to decide if the global Wikimedia community approves starting a banner campaign asking Wikipedia readers to call on the Syrian government to release Bassel from prison. We understand that a campaign like this would be unprecedented in Wikipedia's history, which is why we're seeking the widest possible consensus among the community.

Given Bassel's urgent situation and the resulting tight schedule, we ask everyone to get involved with the poll and the discussion to the widest possible extent, and to promote it among your communities as soon as possible.

(Apologies for writing in English; please kindly Translate this message into your own language.)

Thank you for your participation!

Update version of Free Bassel marked for translation? has an edit removing a phrase Bassel's family considers dangerous. I believe a translation administrator is needed to update the version marked for translation and that you are one; apologies for bothering if I'm wrong!

What future IdeaLab campaigns would you like to see?

Hi there,

I’m Jethro, and I’m seeking your help in deciding topics for new IdeaLab campaigns that could be run starting next year. These campaigns aim to bring in proposals and solutions from communities that address a need or problem in Wikimedia projects. I'm interested in hearing your preferences and ideas for campaign topics!

Here’s how to participate:

Take care,
