Wikimedia Foundation Affiliates Strategy: Affiliate health criteria and changes to User Group recognition process

1
MediaWiki message delivery (diskussionbidrag)

This communication has been adapted from the original message.

Dear all,

We would like to thank all of you who shared feedback with us during this phase of the Wikimedia Foundation Affiliates Strategy process that started in November 2022, both on- and off-wiki. You can read the report from the first phase here.

Since that point, AffCom has been working with the Board of Trustees, Foundation staff, affiliates, and wider community members to enable them to provide appropriate guidance to affiliates regarding what it means to be an active and healthy Wikimedia organisation. As a result of those conversations, the committee has voted to adopt the following 10 criteria for affiliates, grouped into four main areas:

  • Goal delivery
  • Organisational Development
    • Good governance & communication
    • Financial & legal compliance
    • Affiliate health & resilience
  • Leadership & Inclusion
    • Diverse, skilled, and accountable leadership
    • Diversity balance (especially gender)
    • Universal Code of Conduct compliance)
  • Engagement & Collaboration
    • Internal (membership) engagement
    • Community connection
    • Partnerships & collaboration

You are encouraged to read more details about each of these criteria here, including guidance on how each can be met. All criteria will be tracked for all affiliates, except for the criteria around financial and legal compliance, which only apply to those affiliates receiving funds and/or that are incorporated.

Staff and AffCom are working on streamlining affiliate reporting requirements, and responding to feedback raised during the community feedback period about the reporting burden. The new requirements of data collected in reports would be useful also for different Foundation teams and departments, and allow for the creation of detailed regional or global reports that demonstrate affiliate health and impact.

In July 2024, AffCom will work to finalise the implementation plans for the changes to the affiliate requirements and application process. In August 2024, updates will be made to Meta-wiki and other supporting platforms.

You can follow the process here.

The insights from the 2023 process also included recognising a need to strengthen AffCom processes for evaluating potential User Groups’ furtherance of shared movement goals, sustainability, and general ability to be healthy and active movement participants. AffCom has adopted a revised process for User Group recognition, and will be pausing new User Group recognitions until September 2024.

No immediate changes are happening, except the pause of considering new User Group recognitions until September, for applications received after today, June 12, 2024. Once more detailed implementation plans are developed, there will be an update here and on the relevant Meta pages with the next steps after Wikimania.

To provide your feedback, please leave a comment on the main talk page on Meta.

Alternatively, you can join AffCom's open office hours on June 19 at 14:00 UTC or request a conversation as a part of Talking:2024. You can use the Let’s Talk to sign up for a time to speak with us.

Looking forward to your feedback!

Best regards,

Wikimedia Sverige och Hitta.se

10
Tommy Kronkvist (diskussionbidrag)

Jag har lagt märke till att om man gör en sökning efter "Wikimedia Sverige" på Hitta.se (såhär) så anges fortfarande Hammarby Kaj som adress, alltså föreningen förra adress, innan vi flyttade till nuvarande kontor i Norrsken House på Birger Jarlsgatan. Det bör förstås ändras. Om man klickar på något av sökresultaten för Wikimedia Sverige där så kommer man till en sida där det bland annat finns en länk särskilt för att ändra uppgifterna. Det är dock – förstås! – inte riktigt vem som helst som har rätt befogenheter att utföra sådana ändringar. Följande anges: "För att ändra uppgifter måste du verifiera företaget. Du som har lämplig befattningsroll godkänns och får då ett gratis företagskonto. Du identifierar dig själv enkelt med Bank-ID." Jag förmodar att endera firmatecknare, ordförande eller verksamhetschefen är den bäst lämpade?

(För formens skull kan nämnas att vi åtminstone har rätt adress på Eniro.se. Alltid något. :-)

Sabelöga (diskussionbidrag)

Det kan också nämnas att rätt adress anges på AllaBolag.se men inte på Bolagsfakta.se och merinfo.se. Nej vänta Norrsken House är ju rätt. Alla dom där stämmer. Så även Ratsit och Gleif. Det verkar helt enkelt vara så att Hitta.se har föråldrad information. Kanske uppdaterar dom bara långsamt?

Tommy Kronkvist (diskussionbidrag)

Enligt deras egen hemsida så "uppdateras namn-, telefon-, adress- och branschuppgifter varje dygn", men det verkar inte riktigt vara så i verkligheten.

Sabelöga (diskussionbidrag)

Nej, verkligen inte..

André Costa (WMSE) (diskussionbidrag)
André Costa (WMSE) (diskussionbidrag)

Nu borde adressen vara uppdaterad. Av någon anledning finns det två träffar på föreningen vilket jag inte kan göra något åt, men jag har nu även lagt in en begäran om att rätta telefonnumret på den ena. /André Costa (WMSE) (diskussion) 16 maj 2024 kl. 09.29 (CEST)

Tommy Kronkvist (diskussionbidrag)

Nu är telefonnumret detsamma för båda. Tackar!

Jo, apropå de två versionerna, med "Hitta-ID" mufnvvyd respektive jjjotehm. Den enda skillnaden mellan dem som jag kan se är att föreningen i det första fallet är listad som "ideell förening", men i det sistnämnda inte bara som ideell förening utan dessutom som "datakonsult". Det synes mig vara mest korrekt, i varje fall formellt: enligt Skatteverkets data över svensk näringsgrensindelning (SNI) är föreningen i dagsläget klassificerad med SNI-koderna "62020" (Datakonsultverksamhet) samt "63990" (Övriga informationstjänster).

Förresten, om man ska vara noga så är ju föreningen sökbar på flera andra sätt också: utöver ovanstående så har vi till exempel även posten lrbbfhg på Hitta.se. Den rör egentligen bara telefonnumret för pressfrågor, alltså det nummer som står listat under "Kontakta oss" här på Wikimedia.se – Huvudsidan. Även på den Hitta.se-sidan är adressen till föreningens kontor korrekt. Däremot saknas information om hemsida och e-post. Kanske borde åtminstone press(at)wikimedia.se läggas till, eftersom själva telefonnumret trots allt rör just presskontakter?

André Costa (WMSE) (diskussionbidrag)

Den träffen verkar vara mer särkopplad än de andra. Möjligen är den, organisationsnummer till trotts, kopplad mot något annat underliggande konto. Ser om jag kan få dem att slå ihop alla tre. /André Costa (WMSE) (diskussion)

Tommy Kronkvist (diskussionbidrag)

Utmärkt. Tack André!

Dear community members,

The Community Affairs Committee (CAC) of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees invites you to give feedback on a draft Procedure for Sibling Project Lifecycle. This draft Procedure outlines proposed steps and requirements for opening and closing Wikimedia Sibling Projects, and aims to ensure any newly approved projects are set up for success. This is separate from the procedures for opening or closing language versions of projects, which is handled by the Language Committee or closing projects policy.

You can find the details on this page, as well as the ways to give your feedback from today until the end of the day on June 23, 2024, anywhere on Earth.

You can also share information about this with the interested project communities you work with or support, and you can also help us translate the procedure into more languages, so people can join the discussions in their own language.

On behalf of the CAC,

Dear Wikimedia Affiliates,

The Community Affairs Committee (CAC) of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees invites you to give feedback on a draft Procedure for Sibling Project Lifecycle. Affiliates play important roles in the Movement, working with communities and external partners, and thus they bring valuable perspectives to the table. We warmly welcome you to the conversations. In addition, please share information about this with your affiliate membership, and any project communities your affiliate works with or supports. You can also help translate the procedure into more languages so that people can join the discussions in their language.

This draft Procedure outlines proposed steps and requirements for opening and closing Wikimedia Sibling Projects. It aims to ensure any newly approved projects are set up for success. This is separate from the procedures for opening or closing language versions of projects, which is handled by the Language Committee. It is also separate from the closing projects policy.

You can find the details of the proposal on this page, as well as the ways to give your feedback from today until the end of the day on June 23, 2024, anywhere on Earth.

We have also reached out to your contact persons via the emails provided.

On behalf of the CAC,

Årsmöte och kalender på bloggen

4
Tommy Kronkvist (diskussionbidrag)

Det är lite sent nu, men för framtiden kanske man även skulle flagga för årsmötet på bloggens sidor om våra event, motsvarande https://wikimedia.se/2024/04/ Dessutom ser jag att årsmötet inte ens finns uppsatt i kalendern på bloggens huvudsida https://wikimedia.se/ Faktum är att kalendern verkar vara helt tom. Jag gick tillbaka till januari 2020 och kunde inte hitta en enda post under någon av månaderna sedan dess. Är kalenderfunktionen "trasig"?

André Costa (WMSE) (diskussionbidrag)

Hej Tommy.

Vi har haft en del diskussioner internt om den kalenderns vara eller icke vara. I dagsläget används den inte eftersom den tidigare synkning som fanns slutade fungera. Vi skulle behöva ta ett nytag och fundera på vad vi vill ska synas på den och sedan komma på ett sätt att reparera den. /André Costa (WMSE) (diskussion) 14 maj 2024 kl. 09.40 (CEST)

Tommy Kronkvist (diskussionbidrag)

Hej André. Till dess borde man förmodligen ta bort den, eller kanske ännu hellre kommentera bort den, så att den förvisso är kvar i koden men inte syns på sidan. Som det är nu så ser folk att ingenting någonsin står i den, och "vänjer sig" sålunda vid att den är meningslös att bry sig om. Det är 1) dålig reklam och 2) minskar chansen att besökare återigen ska börja använda kalendern, den dag den är korrigerad och i bruk.

Sebastian Berlin (WMSE) (diskussionbidrag)

Nu har jag tagit bort den tills vidare.

MediaWiki message delivery (diskussionbidrag)

Hello all,

The next language community meeting is scheduled in a few weeks - May 31st at 16:00 UTC. If you're interested, you can sign up on this wiki page.

This is a participant-driven meeting, where we share language-specific updates related to various projects, collectively discuss technical issues related to language wikis, and work together to find possible solutions. For example, in the last meeting, the topics included the machine translation service (MinT) and the languages and models it currently supports, localization efforts from the Kiwix team, and technical challenges with numerical sorting in files used on Bengali Wikisource.

Do you have any ideas for topics to share technical updates related to your project? Any problems that you would like to bring for discussion during the meeting? Do you need interpretation support from English to another language? Please reach out to me at ssethi(__AT__)wikimedia.org and add agenda items to the document here.

We look forward to your participation!
