- The Wikimedia projects mean those platforms within the Wikimedia Family that are usually called sister projects of Wikipedia:
- Wikipedia The free encyclopedia
- Wikimedia Commons The free media database
- Wiktionary The free dictionary
- Wikisource The free library
- Wikibooks Free textbook collections
- Wikiquote The free quote compendium
- Wikivoyage The free travel guide
- Wikispecies The free species directory
- Wikiversity Free learning resources
- Wikidata The free database
- Meta-Wiki About the projects
- We also include translatewiki.net.
- Identification can be via user names systematically connected with the institution, special user templates showing the connection to an institution, registration in a Wikiproject, or possibly through personal knowledge etc.
- This include the Wikimedia projects, translatewiki.net and Wikimini, according to the principle that we train a pedagogue that are using the creation of content as a part of the pedagogical process.
- An organisational unit with self-governing power is included here; however, units that have been included previous years are not.
- Software which is considered is MediaWiki extensions in use on the Wikimedia project or on translatewiki.net. This is in accordance with the priority order: bugs, erroneous translations, untranslated.
- Swedish, English and Arabic language Wikipedia.
- We are counting occasions and Wikimedians as follows:
- Only activities outside of other project related goals count. I.e. a Bot Academy focusing on cultural heritage and as part of COH does not count, but an event focused on running bots but not related to a specific project count.
- Wikimedians and advocates for free knowledge who got support count, regardless of if they used the information or not. The important part is that they asked for help/resources. I.e. people contributing to FOSS-projects count.
- We count occasions as when someone got help from a WMSE staff member. I.e. a volunteer working for two weeks without contact does not count, but if they send an e-mail with questions after a week that counts as one occasion. Questions related to memberships, donations or administrative matters does not count towards the goals.
- With recurring meetups we are referring to some type of face-to-face meetings that are repeated over time.
- Underrepresented groups are here defined as:
- contributors to a language version other than the 10 largest Wikipedias (per 5+ editsp/month (3m avg) according to https://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/Sitemap.htm) or Swedish Wikipedia
- contributors who are 60 years or older
- With Fikarummet we are referring to https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Fikarummet
- GLAM Newsletter and Education Newsletter.
