Votre message non traduit me semble faire preuve d'un certain manque de respect envers les contributeurs francophones de Wikipédia qui ne parlent pas l'anglais. Sachez que le Bistro des non-francophones est prévu pour les non francophones et attend vos messages dans la langue que vous voudrez ! 23:23, 18 December 2015 (UTC)

Merci pour votre réponse. Because my French is very poor, I must answer here in English. The Wikipedia 15 materials are available for any and all translation. We welcome your additions!

Wikipedia promotion in India[edit]

This is an extremely important initiative which I fully support. I have today commented on it in connection with the EN Wikipedia's Women in Red talk page as follows:

  • "I found the recently updated version of Wikipedia awareness interesting and pertinent to our own WiR interests. In particular, efforts to increase awareness of Wikipedia in India by means of a video in Hindi are likely to increase interest substantially (cf. progress in Nigeria). Recent figures show that over three quarters of people in India have never even heard of Wikipedia. (Surprsingly Wikipedia is best known in Spain (91%), better than in the United States (87%) and Britain (83%.) I think we should actively try to follow up on this initiative, possibly by including India as a priority in our future editathons and keeping abreast of any physical editathons in India itself. Maybe Rosie or others involved in Wikimedia planning could liaise with those involved to emphasize the need to include women in the Hindi-based initiatives to promote Wikipedia. We could also try specifically to involve Indian women students in propagating information about our activities and the support we offer."

Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help you increase awareness of Wikipedia among Indian women.--Ipigott (talk) 10:11, 21 February 2018 (UTC)


Hello. You've created this map: click. Poland is marked with a dark blue color, which means that feedback was shared on the proposal. Could you tell me what sort of feedback was that? Who provided you with that feedback? Links highly appreciated. Cheers, tufor (talk) 19:12, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

  • Dear Mr. McCune, I would also want to know who provided you with that feedback. Sincerely --Teukros (talk) 16:10, 7 February 2020 (UTC)
    • @Teukros: @Tufor: Hi there! We collected comments from Wikimedia Polska affiliate attendees at the Wikimedia Conference in 2019. The image of affiliate engagement was published to Wikimedia Commons in August 2019, but it reflects the range of comments collected throughout the review period of February to May 2019 Many of the comments we collected came at Wikimedia gatherings during that time, including the Berlin summit. ZMcCune (WMF) (talk) 00:49, 8 February 2020 (UTC)
      • There were 4 people editing on Polish Wikipedia, who attended the Berlin summit. One of them - Michał Buczyński expressed his attitude here. Our Board says we haven't released any official statement on this topic. So it leaves 3 people. Can you tell us who's individual opinion you count as a community feedback? Lukasz Lukomski (talk) 08:21, 8 February 2020 (UTC)
      • Thanks for the reply. @Lukasz Lukomski: as much as I share your sentiments, the map is about "Affiliate engagement", and affiliates are chapters (like WMPL), not wikicommunities (like Polish Wikipedia editors). Also engagement means that people somehow engaged, that is, in this case, (presumably verbally) expressed their opinion, not necessarily supported the idea. When we talk about community feedback then we have this currently running RfC, in which 90+% of actual volunteers/community are opposed to this whole rebranding idea. tufor (talk) 11:35, 8 February 2020 (UTC)
