Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English. This message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

As we mentioned last month, the Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout 2017. This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve.

Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list, and posted on Meta-Wiki. Each month, we are sending overviews of these updates to this page as well. Sign up to receive future announcements and monthly highlights of strategy updates on your user talk page.

Here is a overview of the updates that have been sent since our message last month:

Review of initial updates on Wikimedia movement strategy process

MediaWiki message delivery (Diskussionbidrag)

Note: Apologies for cross-posting and sending in English. Message is available for translation on Meta-Wiki.

The Wikimedia movement is beginning a movement-wide strategy discussion, a process which will run throughout 2017. For 15 years, Wikimedians have worked together to build the largest free knowledge resource in human history. During this time, we've grown from a small group of editors to a diverse network of editors, developers, affiliates, readers, donors, and partners. Today, we are more than a group of websites. We are a movement rooted in values and a powerful vision: all knowledge for all people. As a movement, we have an opportunity to decide where we go from here.

This movement strategy discussion will focus on the future of our movement: where we want to go together, and what we want to achieve. We hope to design an inclusive process that makes space for everyone: editors, community leaders, affiliates, developers, readers, donors, technology platforms, institutional partners, and people we have yet to reach. There will be multiple ways to participate including on-wiki, in private spaces, and in-person meetings. You are warmly invited to join and make your voice heard.

The immediate goal is to have a strategic direction by Wikimania 2017 to help frame a discussion on how we work together toward that strategic direction.

Regular updates are being sent to the Wikimedia-l mailing list, and posted on Meta-Wiki. Beginning with this message, monthly reviews of these updates will be sent to this page as well. Sign up to receive future announcements and monthly highlights of strategy updates on your user talk page.

Here is a review of the updates that have been sent so far:

De-Recognition of Affiliates with Long-standing Non-Compliance

1
MediaWiki message delivery (Diskussionbidrag)

This is an update from the Wikimedia Affiliations Committee. Translations are available.

Recognition as a Wikimedia affiliate - a chapter, thematic organization, or user group - is a privilege that allows an independent group to officially use the Wikimedia name to further the Wikimedia mission. While most Wikimedia affiliates adhere to the basic compliance standards set forth in their agreements with the Wikimedia Foundation, a protocol has been developed to address the exceptional cases when a Wikimedia affiliate does not meet basic compliance standards and their continued recognition as a Wikimedia affiliate presents a risk to the Wikimedia movement.

In the past year, the Affiliations Committee - with support from Wikimedia Foundation staff - has made a concerted effort to address a handful of chapters with long-standing issues of non-compliance. As a result, in the coming days and months, a small number of chapters that have been unable to return to compliance through their efforts in the past year will not have their chapter agreements renewed. As a consequence, these organizations will no longer have the additional rights to use the Wikimedia trademarks, including the Wikimedia name, that had been granted under those agreements.

If you have questions about what this means for community members in the affected affiliates’ region or language areas, we have put together a basic FAQ. The FAQ talk page is available for additional questions and comments, and the Affiliations Committee is happy to answer questions directly.

Uppslagsord ska normalt inledas med liten bokstav

Kiirunankarhu (Diskussionbidrag)

Undertecknad skrev en motion till Wikimedias årsmöte utan att förstå, att föreningen inte hade befogenhet att bifalla den. Jag hänvisades hit och återger här motionen i sin helhet:

Giron 2016-01-08

Wikimedias årsmöte 2016

Motion om uppslagsord

   En allvarlig brist vidlåder alla wikimedier: uppslagsorden skrivs alltid med stor begynnelsebokstav.

Därmed kan användaren tro, att Maskros och andra växter, Katt och andra djur, Granit och andra bergarter, Filosofi och andra vetenskaper, Finska och andra språk samt Svensk och andra folkslag stavas med stor begynnelsebokstav. I den just lästa meningen ser man ju, hur fel detta är.

Naturligtvis skall alla ord stavas med versal, när de inleder en mening (utom af, de, von, van, al- och så vidare). Och naturligtvis ska användaren kunna söka ett ord genom att skriva det med eller utan versaler i början av ordet. Däremot är det förödande för språkanvändningen, att uppslagsordet på den sida man kommer till är stavat med versal, när det inte är egennamn.

Förmodligen är det ogörligt att ändra uppslagsorden i hela Wikipedia-arkivet, men det bör göras fortlöpande varje gång man ser detta fel.

Jag yrkar, att årsmötet fastslår,

att uppslagsord, som inte är egennamn, alltid skrivs med liten begynnelsebokstav (gemen).

att alla, som inför nya uppslag, uppmanas att efterleva detta efter att noga ha förvissat sig om aktuellt uppslagsords svenska rättstavning.

 Kiruna dag som ovan,

Björn Forseth (namnteckning)

Historiker (Diskussionbidrag)

Hej Björn! Tack för ditt förslag. Som jag skrev i ett mejl till dig, så är detta inte en fråga för föreningen utan för gemenskapen på svenskspråkiga Wikipedia. Gör därför inlägget på svenskspråkiga Wikipedias Bybrunnen.

Aktiviteter för att få fler medlemmar

John Andersson (WMSE) (Diskussionbidrag)

Under sommaren kan det vara möjligt att ordna evenemang på stadens gator utan kostnad. Då skulle vi kunna berätta om vår verksamhet och hitta fler medlemmar. I DN står det: "I ändringarna av regelverket ingår också att den som genomför ett litet evenemang utan reklam, utan vinstdrivande syfte och utan inträdesavgift slipper betala för att använda stadens allmänna utrymmen." http://mobil.dn.se/sthlm/pop-up-parker-och-gagator-poppar-upp-till-sommaren/

Ainali (Diskussionbidrag)

TIll dess att de nya reglerna är antagna kan man få lite guidning i broschyren Handbok i medborgardriven stadsutveckling.

PS. Bybrunnen ska i nuvarande definition egentligen behandla utformningen av wikin. Läge att bredda syftet?

MediaWiki message delivery (Diskussionbidrag)

This is an update from the Wikimedia Affiliations Committee. Translations are available.

The Wikimedia Affiliations Committee is pleased to introduce the launch of the Wikimedia Affiliates mailing list, which is basically a place for all the affiliates (chapters, thematic organizations, user groups) to discuss issues related to affiliates, make announcements to other affiliates, and collaborate on activities and community-wide events. The idea is to help facilitate the dialogue affiliates across our movement, plus collaborative discussions like community-wide activities, joint edit-a-thons, regional conferences, blog/report posts, or other communications from affiliates.

Each Wikimedia movement affiliate is allocated three spots on the mailing list. All affiliates may contact the Affiliations Committee to request additional spots if needed.

Please find a bit more information on Meta-Wiki and do not hesitate to contact the Affiliations Committee if you have further questions.

Thank you - Wikimedia Affiliations Committee

MediaWiki message delivery (Diskussionbidrag)

This is a message regarding the proposed 2015 Free Bassel banner. Translations are available.

Hi everyone,

This is to inform all Wikimedia contributors that a straw poll seeking your involvement has just been started on Meta-Wiki.

As some of your might be aware, a small group of Wikimedia volunteers have proposed a banner campaign informing Wikipedia readers about the urgent situation of our fellow Wikipedian, open source software developer and Creative Commons activist, Bassel Khartabil. An exemplary banner and an explanatory page have now been prepared, and translated into about half a dozen languages by volunteer translators.

We are seeking your involvement to decide if the global Wikimedia community approves starting a banner campaign asking Wikipedia readers to call on the Syrian government to release Bassel from prison. We understand that a campaign like this would be unprecedented in Wikipedia's history, which is why we're seeking the widest possible consensus among the community.

Given Bassel's urgent situation and the resulting tight schedule, we ask everyone to get involved with the poll and the discussion to the widest possible extent, and to promote it among your communities as soon as possible.

(Apologies for writing in English; please kindly translate this message into your own language.)

Thank you for your participation!

Felaktig presentation av localNotice, möjligtvis på grund av document.write()

Det finns ett antal JavaScript-relaterade saker som skulle behöva fixas på den här wikin:

  • Globala wg-variabler behöver bytas ut mot mw.config. De globala varianterna kommer tas bort förr eller senare, och då går saker sönder om inte skripten har uppdaterats.
  • En del skript bör inte laddas längre, antingen eftersom de numer är inbyggda i programvaran eller på grund av andra skäl.
  • En del saker laddas inte på grund av stavfel.
  • document.write() verkar användas. Det är riktigt illa. document.write() bör aldrig användas och jag tror det är på grund av document.write() som localNotice ibland hamnar helt fel (se bilden till höger). Den hamnar då längst ned och går in i vänstermenyn.

Vill föreningen att jag städar upp JavaScript på den här wikin?

Ainali (Diskussionbidrag)

Det tycker jag låter som en bra idé. Om någon på kansliet ger medhåll så kan jag ge dig admin-behörighet så att du kan redigera i Mediawikinamnrymden.

Axel Pettersson (WMSE) (Diskussionbidrag)

Här kommer medhåll från kansliet. Suveränt om det blir fixat! Stort tack på förhand.

Nirmos (Diskussionbidrag)

@Ainali: Jag skulle vilja göra det här på svenskspråkiga Wikinews också. Jag vet att projektet är mer eller mindre stängt, men om man kan undvika skriptfel med ytterst liten insats så tycker jag det är väl värt det.

Ainali (Diskussionbidrag)

Det håller jag med om, men processen för utdelande av behörigheter där är ju lite mer formell.

Nirmos (Diskussionbidrag)

Ok, jag tänkte att det skulle bli omöjligt att få igenom ett val när ingen redigerar där, men nu har jag lite att göra i alla fall.

MediaWiki message delivery (Diskussionbidrag)

This is an update from the Wikimedia Affiliations Committee. Translations are available.

The Affiliations Committee – the committee responsible for guiding volunteers in establishing Wikimedia chapters, thematic organizations, and user groups – is looking for new members!

The main role of the Affiliations Committee is to guide groups of volunteers that are interested in forming Wikimedia affiliates. We review applications from new groups, answer questions and provide advice about the different Wikimedia affiliation models and processes, review affiliate bylaws for compliance with requirements and best practices, and advise the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees on issues connected to chapters, thematic organizations and Wikimedia user groups.

The committee consists of twelve members, six of whom are selected every twelve months for staggered two-year terms.

Key skills

Being a part of the Affiliations Committee requires communication with volunteers all over the world, negotiating skills, cultural sensitivity, and the ability to understand legal texts. We try to get a healthy mix of different skill sets in our members. The key skills and experience that we look for in candidates are:

  • Excitement by the challenge of helping to empower groups of volunteers worldwide.
  • Willingness to process applications through a set, perhaps bureaucratic process.
  • Readiness to participate in political discussions on the role and future of affiliates, models of affiliations, and similar questions.
  • Availability of up to 5 hours per week, and the time to participate in a monthly ~2 hour voice/video meeting.
  • International orientation.
  • Very good communication skills in English.
  • Ability to work and communicate with other languages and cultures.
  • Strong understanding of the structure and work of affiliates and the WMF.
  • Knowledge of different legal systems and experience in community building and organising are a plus.
  • Effective communication skills in other languages are a major plus.
  • Experience with or in an active affiliate is a major plus.
  • Willingness to use one's real name in committee activities (including contacts with current and potential affiliates) when appropriate.

We are looking for people who are not afraid of the workload and are motivated by helping other volunteers to get organized and form communities that further our mission around the world.

Selection process

As a reflection of our commitment to openness, transparency, and bilateral engagement with the Wikimedia community, the 2015 member selection process will include a public review and comment period. All applications received by the committee will be posted on Meta (at Affiliations Committee/Candidates/2015), and the community will be invited to provide comments and feedback about each candidate.

At the end of the public comment period, the applications will be voted on by the members of the committee who are not seeking re-election, taking into account comments put forward by the committee's members, advisors, WMF staff and board liaisons, and the community. A final decision will be made by mid-January 2016, with new members expected to join later that month.

How to apply

If you are interested in joining the committee, please send an application to affcom@lists.wikimedia.org by 31 December 2015. You will get a confirmation that your application was received.

Your application should include the following:

  • Your full name
  • Your contact information (including e-mail address and username)
  • A statement describing your relevant experience, skills, and motivation for joining the committee.

Your statement will be published for community review and feedback, so please do not include any information that you are not comfortable sharing.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me and/or the committee as a whole. We are happy to chat or have a phone call with anyone about our work if this helps them decide to apply. Please distribute this call among your networks, and do apply if you are interested!

Best regards,
Carlos Colina
Chair, Affiliations Committee
