Τα επόμενα βήματα: Καθολικός Κώδικας Συμπεριφοράς και Οδηγίες Εφαρμογής

Η Επιτροπή Κοινοτικών Εργασιών του Διοικητικού Συμβουλίου του Ιδρύματος Wikimedia ευχαριστεί όλους όσους έλαβαν μέρος στην πρόσφατη ψηφοφορία της κοινότητας για τις Οδηγίες Εφαρμογής του Καθολικού Κώδικα Συμπεριφοράς.

Η ομάδα εθελοντών για τον έλεγχο της ψηφοφορίας, συμπλήρωσε την ανασκόπηση της ακρίβειας των ψήφων και ανέφερε 2.283 συνολικούς ψήφους. Από αυτούς, 1.338 (58,6%) των μελών της κοινότητας ψήφισαν υπέρ των Οδηγιών Εφαρμογής και 945 (41,4%) μέλη ψήφισαν κατά. Επιπλέον, 658 μέλη σχολίασαν με 77% των σχολίων στα Αγγλικά.

Αναγνωρίζουμε και εκτιμούμε το πάθος και τη δέσμευση που δείχνουν τα μέλη της κοινότητας στη δημιουργία μιας ασφαλούς και δεκτικής κουλτούρας που σταματά εχθρική και τοξική συμπεριφορά, που υποστηρίζει τους ανθρώπους που στοχοποιούνται με αυτή τη συμπεριφορά και που ενθαρρύνει ανθρώπους με καλή πίστη να είναι δημιουργικοί στα εγχειρήματα Wikimedia.

Even at this incomplete stage, this is evident in the comments received. While the Enforcement Guidelines did reach a threshold of support necessary for the Board to review, we encouraged voters, regardless of which way they were voting, to provide feedback on the elements of the enforcement guidelines that they felt needed to be changed or fixed, as well as why, in case it seemed advisable to launch a further round of edits that would address community concerns.

Foundation staff who have been reviewing comments have advised us of some of the emerging themes, and as a result we have decided as Community Affairs Committee to ask the Foundation to reconvene the drafting committee and to undertake another community engagement to refine the enforcement guidelines based on the community feedback received from the recently concluded vote.

For clarity, this feedback has been clustered into 4 sections as follows:

  1. To identify the type, purpose, and applicability of the training;
  2. To simplify the language for easier translation and comprehension by non-experts;
  3. To explore the concept of affirmation, including its pros and cons;
  4. To review the conflicting roles of privacy/victim protection and right to be heard.

Other issues may emerge during conversations, and particularly as the draft Enforcement Guidelines evolve, but we see these as the primary areas of concern for voters and are asking staff to facilitate review of these issues. After further engagement, the Foundation should re-run the community vote to evaluate the revamped Enforcement Outline to see if the new document is then ready for its official ratification.

Further, we are aware of the concerns with the note 3.1 in the Universal Code of Conduct Policy. We are directing the Foundation to facilitate a review of this language to ensure that the Policy meets its intended purposes of supporting a safe and inclusive community, without waiting for the planned review of the entire Policy at the end of year.

Again, we thank all who participated, thinking about these critical and difficult challenges and contributing to better approaches across the movement to working together well.
