==Primul atelier care ne învață cum să evaluam succesul activităților Wikimedia
On June 22–23, the first workshop on the design and evaluation of programs (organized activities) in the Wikimedia movement took place. The event was held Budapest, Hungary by the Wikimedia Foundation, in partnership with Wikimedia Magyarország, the local chapter. The workshop brought together 21 program leaders from 15 countries to learn the basic concepts of program evaluation. The success of the workshop itself was evaluated, too: Surveys before and after the workshop showed that a majority of the participants left with a better understanding of these terms and concepts.
Preparations for the launch of VisualEditor and Universal Language Selector
In June, work was completed on major new features for VisualEditor (the visual interface to edit wiki pages without markup), in preparation for its launch for all logged-in editors on the English Wikipedia on July 1. It is becoming available to most other Wikipedians during the rest of July.
Also in June, the Universal Language Selector began to be deployed to all Wikimedia projects. It allows users to configure language settings like interface language, fonts, and input methods (keyboard mappings) in a flexible way. By July 1, it was available on more than 150 wikis.

Rezultatele alegerii pentru Consiliu şi FDC
Rezultatele alegerilor Wikimedia 2013 au fost anunţate pe 24 iunie. Doi noi membrii vor face parte din Consiliul de Administraţie în august: María Sefidari (User:Raystorm) şi Phoebe Ayers (User:phoebe, care deja a deservit funcţia de administrator din 2010 până în 2012). Samuel Klein (User:Sj) a fost reales.
For the first time, elections were held for two seats on the Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC), which was formed last year to guide the distribution of donation money to organizations in the Wikimedia movement. Delphine Ménard (User:notafish) and Cristian Consonni (User:CristianCantoro) are joining the seven volunteer committee members that were appointed previously. The elections also confirmed Susana Morais (User:Lusitana) in her role as FDC ombudsperson.
Au fost înregistrate 1809 voturi valide, în comparaţie cu cele 3368 voturi înregistrate la alegerile din 2011.
"Flow Funding" supports aerial photographs of Hamburg from a hot air balloon
On June 8, five Wikipedians took a photo flight over Hamburg, Germany on board a hot air balloon that had been rented specifically for this project. Over 2000 photos were uploaded to Commons as result of the project. Compared to airplanes, the slower speed and lower flight altitude of balloons offer advantages for the aerial photography of cities.
In her (English-language) project report, the project organizer shared 20 (positive and negative) lessons learned. Successor projects for balloon flights over other German cities are already being planned.
The project was one of the first financed as part of the "Flow Funding" experiment. Flow Funding is a decentralized process where experienced community members are entrusted with making decisions about the funding of activities that support the Wikimedia mission. In the pilot phase, each Flow Funding member could allocate between USD500 and USD2,000. The Wikimedia Foundation then transfers these amounts directly to the grant recipient selected by the Flow Funding member.
Art and design students illustrate Wikipedia
In June, several students participating in the ongoing wikiArS initiative uploaded their works to Commons. The idea behind wikiArS is that students from art and design schools create illustrations for Wikipedia articles, such as drawings of notable people or extinct animals, or animations explaining physical phenomena. wikiArS was started in 2011 by Catalan Wikimedians, and has been supported by an Individual Engagement Grant (IEG) from the Wikimedia Foundation since earlier this year.
Wikipedia Offline pentru prizonieri
Since March 2013, inmates of the Bellevue prison in Gorgier, Switzerland can request access to an uncensored offline copy of the French Wikipedia, based on the Kiwix software. Internet access is severely restricted for the prisoners, most of whom serve long-term sentences. But 18 of them own or rent a computer, and they all made use of the Wikipedia offer. The project was organized by the Swiss Wikimedia chapter together with a volunteer Wikimedian, in collaboration with the prison staff. The chapter reports very positive feedback from the project participants, and high interest from Swiss media.
