Wiki Loves Monuments アプリのスクリーンショット

Wiki Loves Monuments アプリを使ってモバイルデバイスからウィキメディアプロジェクトに投稿することができます

9月に予定されている「Wiki Loves Monuments」は世界中で開催されるコンテストで、ウィキメディア・コモンズに自由なライセンスで提供された文化遺産の写真を対象とするものです。モバイルチームはアンドロイド用のWiki Loves Monuments appの提供を開始しました。ユーザは近くにある遺跡を見つけたり、一覧から検索したりすることができます。アプリで写真を撮って直接ウィキメディア・コモンズに投稿することもできます。モバイルから貢献できる仕組みは公式にサポートされたものとしてはこれが初めてです。ウィキメディアプロジェクトにモバイルデバイスを使って貢献する他の方法についても現在検討が進められています。




Request for Comment (RfC)において、あるコミュニティの管理者、調停者、電子メールでの応答、プロジェクト統制などの指定された支援業務を資格あるユーザが行う時、法的な弁護士費用の支払いを助成することを意図するプログラムを財団では提案しています。


アラビア語のウィキペディアにおいて、編集者を増やし貢献するためのプログラムの中でパイロットプロジェクトと名付けられた新たな「貢献のためのポータルサイト」が6月に作られました。このサイトはミスタイプを修正する、新たな記事を作るなど6つの基本的な編集作業に対する簡単な視覚的解説を提供しています。第1段階での分析によると、既に貢献を始めた新規ユーザの割合は増加してきています。詳細は「Pilot project on Arabic Wikipedia helps move the needle on editor growth」に記載されています(英語アラビア語)。

Other movement highlights

Donation of African art images

On Wikimedia Commons, an Italian art collection ("Raccolte Extraeuropee" from Milan) has been uploading hundreds of photos of African artworks, with detailed descriptions. In Africa itself, over 50 GLAMs (galleries, libraries, archives or museums) are supporting the "WikiAfrica" project, while several others are collaborating with Wikimedia South Africa and Wikimedia Kenya.

Catalan librarians receive Wikipedia training

In a two-month project encompassing the entire network of public libraries of Catalonia, 150 librarians were trained in informing their library users about Wikipedia. It is a pioneering collaboration between Amical Viquipèdia and the Catalan Ministry of Culture. The ministry has also reprinted 1,500 copies of a "Welcome to Wikipedia" guide for distribution through the network of libraries.

Annual German-language conference

WikiCon 2012, the annual conference of German-speaking Wikimedians, took place over three days in the town of Dornbirn near the tripoint of Austria, Germany and Switzerland. It brought together over 200 participants, from German-language Wikimedia projects, other free knowledge endeavours and the interested public. The event was organized by volunteers and financially supported by the Wikimedia chapters of the three countries, and the Wikimedia Foundation. A "Declaration of Dornbirn WikiCon 2012" was passed by acclamation at the conference. Among other topics, the document calls for guidelines on paid editing, more participation by women, and a more relaxed deletion policy for media with unknown copyright status.
