From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
This page is a translated version of the page Wikimedia movement affiliates/Portal and the translation is 24% complete.

Diese Seite listet wichtige Ressourcen für Wikimedia-Vereine, thematische Organisationen und Benutzergruppen auf.


Wie in der von dir unterzeichneten User Group Agreement angegeben, wird von den Wikimedia-Partnern erwartet, dass sie sich an einen Verhaltenskodex halten, der eine Richtlinie für das Verhalten der Gruppenmitglieder in allen Kontexten (online und offline) darstellt und nicht nur auf persönliche Veranstaltungen beschränkt ist. Es ist wichtig, dass man als anerkannte Gruppe für die Einhaltung des Verhaltenskodex sorgen muss und dafür verantwortlich ist. Darüber hinaus hat die Foundation einen Verhaltenskodex für technische Räume entwickelt. Wir empfehlen dir, diese Richtlinien zu prüfen, um als Gruppe einen lokalen Verhaltenskodex zu entwickeln, den du dann in die Landessprache(n) deiner Gruppe übersetzt. Dieser Verhaltenskodex sollte von den Gruppenmitgliedern innerhalb der ersten 6 Monate nach der Anerkennung und bei Beitritt neuer Mitglieder gebilligt werden.


Eigene Seite auf Meta

  • Vergewissere dich, dass deine Seite alle erforderlichen Informationen enthält: Führe deine Mitglieder auf (oder einen Link zu einer Seite, auf der sie aufgelistet sind) sowie die Mitglieder des Verwaltungsrats und des Prüfungsausschusses.
  • Gib deine Pressekontakte und eine öffentliche Liste an, über die du kontaktiert werden kannst. Wenn du keine Mailingliste hast, bitte WMF, dir beim Einrichten einer solchen zu helfen. Du benötigst ein Phabricator-Ticket (siehe Phabricator/Hilfe), um eine Task für eine neue Liste zu erstellen.
  • Halte die Seite auf dem neuesten Stand. Es ist sinnvoll, auf dieser Seite zu erwähnen, wann deine Hauptversammlung(en) anstehen, damit andere zu diesem Zeitpunkt mit Updates rechnen können.
  • Verlinke deine Satzungen, Pläne, Finanzhilfen, Berichte usw. Beschreibe deine Projekte (man kann diese wie in dieser Vorlage gliedern)
  • Erwähne und verlinke einen Blog (falls vorhanden) und deine Accounts in den sozialen Medien. Lies unbedingt diese Empfehlungen.
  • Die Erweiterung:Übersetzen ist auf Meta aktiviert, also erstellen deine Seite auf Englisch und übersetze sie dann in die Sprachen, die für das Projekt nützlich sind.


  • Am besten ist es, die Rollen zu abonnieren, nicht die Personen über ihre privaten E-Mails. Abonnieren Chair(_AT_)MyAffiliate(_DOT_)org für die Liste der Vorsitzenden und leiten sie an die private E-Mail der neu gewählten Vorsitzenden weiter. Verfahre so auch mit anderen Rollen in deinem Projekt. So stellst du sicher, dass der (zum Beispiel) der Vorsitzende in die Liste eingetragen wird, sobald er gewählt wird. Es ist auch gut, im Wiki zu dokumentieren, wer Zugang zu welchen Listen hat, sodass du weißt, wer für die Information jeder Liste verantwortlich ist.
  • Mailinglisten/Übersicht bietet einen Überblick über alle bestehenden Mailinglisten. Vergewissere dich, dass die richtigen Leute dort eingetragen sind. Einige nützliche thematische Mailinglisten:

Movement structure

Incorporated independent non-profits representing the Wikimedia movement and supporting movement work globally, focused within a geography. Chapters or national/sub-national organizations use a name clearly linking them to Wikimedia and are granted use of Wikimedia trademarks for their work, publicity, and fundraising.
Incorporated independent non-profits representing the Wikimedia movement and supporting work focused on a specific theme, topic, subject or issue within or across countries and regions. Thematic or focused organizations use a name clearly linking them to Wikimedia and are granted use of Wikimedia trademarks for their work, publicity and fundraising.
Open membership groups with an established contact person and history of projects, designed to be easy to form. User groups may or may not choose to incorporate and are granted limited use of the Wikimedia marks for publicity related to events and projects.
Like-minded organizations that actively support the Wikimedia movement’s work. They are listed publicly and granted limited use of the marks for publicity indicating their support of and collaboration with Wikimedia. Unlike the other models, this one is not well defined by the Affiliations Committee. Please comment on this model on its own page.

The Wikimedia chapters and thematic organizations select two members for the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees (out of 10). The selected two are proposed to BoT as nominees, and current BoT approves them. They serve for 3-year terms. User groups are not eligible to participate in this selection (as of May 2016). The next elections are due in TBD.

Planning for cooperation

The Affiliations Committee is interested in fostering healthy collaboration or at minimum, peaceful co-existence among Affiliates that share an overlap in thematic or geographic region. User groups may come and go, or they may stay to thrive and grow as user groups, or sometimes develop into chapters or thematic organizations. However, no user groups have ownership of the territory in which they operate, and we encourage many user groups to coexist. We aim to ensure peaceful coexistence by working with all new and existing groups to identify their planned activities and goals to connect on shared movement goals and to balance any potential overlaps with agreements for operating in shared spaces. You are encouraged to demonstrate steps and initiatives you have taken to collaborate with existing Affiliates in your region, and where such a collaboration is not possible, a plan for how you will maintain scope and focus integrity in respecting boundaries you communicated in your application.

Planning for diversity

The Affiliations committee encourages new groups to consider creating plans to ensure diversity in Members, Leadership as well as Activities. This is a good indication of the growth potential of groups as they pursue the movement goals and mission. You are encouraged to develop a diversity plan and to submit this within the first 6 months of your recognition, and as new members join.
