Introducing Wikimedia Space: A platform for movement news and organizations

MediaWiki message delivery (diskussionbidrag)

Hi V2b7d47nua4cgjf9,
I’m writing to let you know that the Community Engagement department [1]at the Wikimedia Foundation is launching a new platform, Wikimedia Space. Here, you will find stories for and by contributors to the Wikimedia movement, and a space for discussions of different topics.

We know that finding information about Wikimedia activities and processes is very complicated, which makes the learning curve to enter our movement and be successful afterwards, really steep. By centralizing community stories and conversations in one shared space, we believe we are facilitating access and discoverability of topics across the movement, improving, in turn, connections among Wikimedians.

As an affiliated organization to the Wikimedia Foundation, we hope that you can share this platform with your local community, and we count on you to encourage them to add their voices. If you’d like to contribute stories, and overall, participate in the discussion section, please read our blogging guidelines and our code of conduct and join the conversation. Find more information about the project on its page on Meta.

Looking forward to seeing you at Wikimedia Space,
María Cruz, Communications and Outreach Manager, Wikimedia Foundation.

Jag har gjort en ny översättning till Template:Appeal/default/sv som överensstämmer mer med den engelska förlagan. Jag hoppas att nån här har möjlighet att redigera den sidan. Och "min" översättning är ju inte skriven i sten heller. Nedan kommer mitt förslag:

Wikipedia är en av de mest besökta webbplatserna i världen.

Det är inget fel med handel. Annonsering är inte något ont. Men det hör inte hemma här. Inte på Wikipedia.

Wikipedia är något speciellt. Det är som ett bibliotek eller en allmän park. Det är som ett tempel för tänkandet. En plats vi kan gå till för att reflektera, lära oss och dela med av vår kunskap till andra.

När jag grundade Wikipedia kunde jag ha gjort det till ett vinstdrivande företag med annonser, men jag bestämde mig för att göra något annorlunda. Genom åren har vi jobbat hårt för att hålla organisationen liten och effektiv. Vi fullföljer effektivt vårt uppdrag.

Om alla som läser detta donerade lite, skulle vi bara behöva driva insamlingen en dag om året. Men alla har inte möjlighet att bidra. Och det är helt okej. Varje år bestämmer sig precis tillräckligt många för att ge sitt stöd.

Överväg att skänka {{AppealAmountSwitch|language=sv|country={{{country}}}|amount=all|$5, $20, $50}} i år. Eller det du kan undvara för att skydda och bevara Wikipedia.

Borde inte det kungöras på Bybrunnen på svenskspråkga Wikipedia? Kanske även på wikimedia-l?

Hej! Jo, vi kommer att lyfta det i lite olika kanaler. Det har dessvärre dröjt lite men det är definitivt på gång.

Hallå. The name of the only person who will vote on behalf of this group to select the next two Board members is now at m:Affiliate-selected Board seats/2019/Eligible entities. Please contact me directly as soon as possible if you need any kind of corrections there. There's only a few hours left to endorse candidates, and only the official voter can do that. I would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that you can make a difference with the necessary translations.

Appreciate your attention and your support so far! Tack! Elitre (WMF) and Facilitators of ASBS 2019, 29 april 2019 kl. 14.15 (CEST)

Hello everyone!

  • The Resolution has been approved by the Board of Trustees;
  • Nominations phase is now open, from April 15 00:00 UTC to April 30 23:59 UTC. See the Call for Candidates and Nominations pages;
    • Community members may ask questions of the candidates;
  • Your main representative has just received an email to confirm that they are indeed the primary contact and will perform official actions on behalf of your group (such as endorsing candidates and then voting). Some groups also need to verify their eligibility status in due time, as explained in the email;
  • New content is available to spread awareness around the process - the infographic on this page has clickable links and can be translated, and a primer is available, that we hope will be particularly helpful to those new to such a process;
  • Finally, you are welcome to help with translations! Pick one page from the ASBS category and, in the next couple of weeks, please consider translating profiles of the candidates in particular.

Thanks for your attention! The Facilitators for ASBS 2019, 15 april 2019 kl. 09.33 (CEST)

Update on the Affiliate-selected Board seats 2019 process

MediaWiki message delivery (diskussionbidrag)

Hi all,

The Election Facilitators met on Friday, April 5. We finalized the resolution, which is now frozen. The Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation will be asked to approve the resolution.

We have made two small changes to be more inclusive. We extended the date for compliance with AffCom reporting and being in good standing to May 7 to allow time for as many Affiliates as possible to be current with these requirements. The Election Facilitators adjusted the language in case a quorum is not met during the election.

On the talk page of the resolution one issue was raised. The issue looks like to be about a possible candidate. Affiliates will have ample time to discuss the merits of candidates during nomination time, screening time, and they can cast their votes on candidates. The Election Facilitators didn't see the necessity for this change, and left the resolution on this point unchanged.

The Election Facilitators will be Abhinav Srivastava, Lane Rasberry, Jeffrey Keefer, Ad Huikeshoven, Neal McBurnett and Alessandro Marchetti. We will welcome more volunteers to assist us in this process, to reach out to the diversity in language and gender in our communities, and do so in an advisory role.

The nomination period opens on April 15. We are going to prepare nomination pages on Meta. You can expect a call for nominations. There is a draft call, including a candidates' profile section with non-binding guidelines about experience and characteristics for nominees. You are welcome to add your insights, or discuss on the talk page.

Erica Litrenta (WMF staff) supports us in this process. She will reach out to all affiliates through mail and other channels to make sure we are up to date with (user)name and contact details of your primary contact.

On behalf of the Election Facilitators, Ad Huikeshoven 6 april 2019 kl. 12.52 (CEST)

Call for complementary facilitators and more to get the ASBS 2019 process started!

MediaWiki message delivery (diskussionbidrag)

Hi everyone, hope all is fine with you!

The next weeks will be intense, as affiliates figure out their participation in the process that will soon select 2 people for the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. Since new Bylaws established that the user groups are for the first time going to be involved in such process, a lot more support than before is certainly going to be necessary, among other things, for big and healthy conversations on the topic. Hence, please encourage members of your group to become a complementary facilitator, or sign up yourself! You can add yourself to the list on Meta or reply to me to flag availability. One person from the facilitators group should soon be selected to liaise with the Foundation Board’s Chair, María Sefidari, on behalf of all affiliates, and it may be wise to also find a deputy for them.

Finally, if you can think of any huge obstacles that would prevent your group from participating to the process (for instance, a language barrier, or lack of good decision-making mechanisms, etc.), please reach out to me directly: it is really important that we hear about them as early as possible. Thank you! Elitre (WMF) 12 mars 2019 kl. 16.23 (CET)

Help us make Wikipedia talk pages more accessible to more participants

MediaWiki message delivery (diskussionbidrag)


Our team at the Wikimedia Foundation is working on a project to improve the ease-of-use and productivity of wiki talk pages. As an affiliate, I can imagine you’ve run into challenges explaining talk pages to first-time participants, or it is an consultation that would interest your members.

We want all contributors to be able to talk to each other on the wikis – to ask questions, to resolve differences, to organize projects and to make decisions. Communication is essential for the depth and quality of our content, and the health of our communities.

We're currently leading a global consultation on how to improve talk pages, and we're looking for groups that can discuss and report on their experiences using (or helping other people to use) wiki talk pages. We'd like to invite you to participate, with the user groups that you belong to. You can learn more about the consultation at and if you're interested in hosting a group discussion (on-wiki or off-wiki), you can sign up at the participant sign-up group.

If you’d like to participate or if you have any questions, please contact us and let us know. The more people participate from many horizons, the better the outcome will be.

Thank you! Trizek (WMF) 8 mars 2019 kl. 16.29 (CET)
