Στιγμιότυπο οθόνης της συμπτυγμένης λίστας των γλωσσικών συνδέσεων.

Γεια σας, θα ήθελα να σας προϊδεάσω σχετικά με ένα επερχόμενο εργαλείο για τη Βικιπαίδεια που ίσως ήδη να έχετε δει στο Tech News.Compact Language Links καθώς είναι διαθέσιμο στη Βήτα έκδοσή του σε όλα τα wikis της Wikimedia από το 2014. Όταν η επιλογή σύμπτυξης της λίστας των γλωσσικών συνδέσμων είναι ενεργοποιημένη, οι χρήστες βλέπουν έναν πολύ μικρότερο κατάλογο των γλωσσών στην συγκεκριμένη ενότητα του λήμματος (δείτε την εικόνα). Αυτό θα είναι διαθέσιμο ως επιλογή για όλους τους χρήστες την ερχόμενη εβδομάδα, το οποίο θα μπορεί να ενεργοποιηθεί ή να απενεργοποιηθεί κατά προτίμηση. Ανυπομονούμε για τα σχόλιά σας και θα σας παρακαλούσαμε να μας ενημερώσετε σχετικά με οποιαδήποτε απορία σας. Λεπτομέρειες σχετικά με τη σύμπτυξη των γλωσσικών συνδέσμων μπορείτε να διαβάσετε στην τεκμηρίωση του έργου.

Λόγω της μεγάλης κλίμακας ενεργοποίησης αυτής της δυνατότητας, αναγκαστήκαμε να στείλουμε μαζικά αυτό το μήνυμα και ως εκ τούτου είναι γραμμένο μόνο στα αγγλικά. Θα εκτιμούσαμε ιδιαίτερα εάν το μήνυμα αυτό μπορούσε να μεταφραστεί για τους χρήστες της Βικιπαίδειας. Η βασική αυτή ανακοίνωση μπορεί επίσης να μεταφραστεί σε αυτή τη σελίδα. Σας ευχαριστώ.

Αν θέλεις, μπορείς να προχωρήσεις σε δοκιμές στο πρόχειρό σου. Πρώτον, λέγεται Κύρια Σελίδα, όχι Πύλη. Δεύτερον, όσον αφορά τα 5 άρθρα, κανένα πρόβλημα, αλλά στο μέλλον, όταν θα έχουμε σίγουρα αρκετά άρθρα για να βάζουμε (δηλαδή θα έχουμε περισσότερα από 1 άρθρο κάθε μέρα). Τρίτον, νομίζω τα άρθρα στην Κύρια Σελίδα πρέπει να εμφανίζονται όπως τώρα, δηλαδή τίτλος και μικρή περίληψη και όχι απλά ο τίτλος και το όνομα εκείνου που το δημιούργησε. Αλλά, όπως είπα και στην αρχή, μπορείς να πειραματιστείς σε μια πρόχειρη σελίδα. Nataly8 συζήτηση 11:32, 24 Αυγούστου 2016 (EEST)Απάντηση[απάντηση]

Nataly8, μπορείς την ημερομηνία να τη βάλεις κάτω από τον τίτλο και να σβήσεις τα -, από το Πρότυπο:Πρωτοσέλιδο; Επιπλέον μπορείς το πρότυπο να το ταιριάξεις μαζί με αυτο Κύρια Σελίδα/header;--Βικιδημοσιογράφος (συζήτηση) 16:44, 24 Αυγούστου 2016 (EEST)Απάντηση[απάντηση]

Έσβησα τις παύλες από το πρότυπο, αλλά δεν ξέρω πως ακριβώς θέλεις να το ταιριάξω στην επικεφαλίδα της Κύριας Σελίδας - μπορείς να δοκιμάσεις στο πρόχειρό σου. Τώρα, όσον αφορά την ονομασία, είναι κοινός κανόνας στα εγχειρήματα της Wikimedia να λέγεται Κύρια Σελίδα. Nataly8 συζήτηση 18:35, 24 Αυγούστου 2016 (EEST)Απάντηση[απάντηση]

Όχι, η ΤΔΒΚ δεν είναι αναγνωρισμένο κράτος, οπότε δεν έχει κάποιο νόημα το εν λόγω πρότυπο. Τα άρθρα για γεγονότα που θα λάβουν χώρα στη βόρεια Κύπρο συμπεριλαμβάνονται στο πρότυπο Κύπρος. Nataly8 συζήτηση 18:17, 24 Αυγούστου 2016 (EEST)Απάντηση[απάντηση]


ΣΗΜΑΝΤΙΚΟ: Επιθεώρηση δραστηριότητας διαχειριστών[επεξεργασία]

Χαίρετε! Μία πολιτική για την αφαίρεση «ανώτερων δικαιωμάτων» (διαχειριστής, γραφειοκράτης, κτλ) υιοθετήθηκε με συναίνεση της παγκόσμιας κοινότητας το 2013. Σύμφωνα με αυτή την πολιτική, οι επίτροποι επιθεωρούν την δραστηριότητα των διαχειριστών σε όλα τα wiki του ιδρύματος Wikimedia που δεν έχουν τοπική πολιτική για τους αδρανείς διαχειριστές. Σύμφωνα με όσα γνωρίζουμε, το wiki σας δεν διαθέτει επίσημη διαδικασία για την αφαίρεση «ανωτέρων δικαιωμάτων» από ανενεργούς λογαριασμούς. Αυτό σημαίνει ότι οι επίτροποι θα δράσουν σύμφωνα με την επιθεώρηση δραστηριότητας διαχειριστών.

Διαπιστώσαμε ότι οι ακόλουθοι χρήστες πληρούν τα κριτήρια αδράνειας (καμία επεξεργασία και καμία διαχειριστική δραστηριότητα για πάνω από 2 χρόνια):

  1. User:Patriot8790

Αυτοί οι χρήστες θα λάβουν σύντομα ειδοποίηση, που θα τους ζητά να αρχίσουν μία συζήτηση στην κοινότητα για το άν θέλουν να κρατήσουν κάποια ή όλα τα δικαιώματά τους. Αν οι χρήστες δεν ανταποκριθούν, τότε τα ανώτερα δικαιώματά τους θα αφαιρεθούν από τους επιτρόπους.

Ωστόσο, αν εσείς ως κοινότητα θέλετε να φτιάξετε τη δική σας διαδικασία επιθεώρησης δραστηριότητας που να υπερκαλύπτει την παγκόσμια, θέλετε να πάρετε άλλη απόφαση σχετικά με τους ανενεργούς κατόχους αυτών των δικαιωμάτων, ή έχετε ήδη αντίστοιχη πολιτική που την παραβλέψαμε, παρακαλούμε ειδοποιήστε τους επιτρόπους στο Meta-Wiki, έτσι ώστε να γνωρίζουμε να μην προχωρήσουμε με την επιθεώρηση δικαιωμάτων στο wiki σας.

Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globally[επεξεργασία]

Please help translate to your language

Hello everyone,

I apologize for posting in English. I would like to inform everyone that I created a new global request for comment (GRFC) at Meta Wiki, which may affect your project: m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

In this GRFC, I propose that two-project shortcuts for project names will become a default alias for the project namespace. For instance, on all Wikipedias, WP will be an alias to the Wikipedia: namespace (and similar for other projects). Full list is available in the GRFC.

This is already the case for Wikivoyages, and many individual projects asked for this alias to be implemented. I believe this makes it easier to access the materials in the project namespace, as well as creating shortcuts like WP:NPOV, as well as helps new projects to use this feature, without having to figure out how to request site configuration changes first.

As far as I can see, Βικινέα currently does not have such an alias set. This means that such an alias will be set for you, if the GRFC is accepted by the global community.

I would like to ask all community members to participate in the request for comment at Meta-Wiki, see m:Requests for comment/Set short project namespace aliases by default globally.

Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions about this proposal.

Best regards,

Universal Code of Conduct – 2021 consultations[επεξεργασία]

Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2[επεξεργασία]

Please help translate to your language

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a universal baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire Wikimedia movement and all its projects. The project is currently in Phase 2, outlining clear enforcement pathways. You can read more about the whole project on its project page.

Drafting Committee: Call for applications[επεξεργασία]

The Wikimedia Foundation is recruiting volunteers to join a committee to draft how to make the code enforceable. Volunteers on the committee will commit between 2 and 6 hours per week from late April through July and again in October and November. It is important that the committee be diverse and inclusive, and have a range of experiences, including both experienced users and newcomers, and those who have received or responded to, as well as those who have been falsely accused of harassment.

To apply and learn more about the process, see Universal Code of Conduct/Drafting committee.

2021 community consultations: Notice and call for volunteers / translators[επεξεργασία]

From 5 April – 5 May 2021 there will be conversations on many Wikimedia projects about how to enforce the UCoC. We are looking for volunteers to translate key material, as well as to help host consultations on their own languages or projects using suggested key questions. If you are interested in volunteering for either of these roles, please contact us in whatever language you are most comfortable.

To learn more about this work and other conversations taking place, see Universal Code of Conduct/2021 consultations.

Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election has come to an end[επεξεργασία]

Thank you for participating in the 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election! Voting closed August 31 at 23:59. The official data, including the four most voted candidates, will be announced as soon as the Elections Committee completes their review of the ballots. The official announcement of the new trustees appointed will happen later, once the selected candidates have been confirmed by the Board.

6,946 community members from 216 wiki projects have voted. This makes 10.2% global participation, 1.1% higher than in the last Board elections. In 2017, 5167 people from 202 wiki projects cast their vote. A full analysis is planned to be published in a few days when the confirmed results are announced. In the meantime, you can check the data produced during the election.

Diversity was an important goal with these elections. Messages about the Board election were translated into 61 languages. This outreach worked well. There were 70 communities with eligible voters voting in this election for the first time. With your help, next year’s Board of Trustees election will be even better.

Upcoming Call for Feedback about the Board of Trustees elections[επεξεργασία]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

The Board of Trustees is preparing a call for feedback about the upcoming Board Elections, from January 7 - February 10, 2022.

While details will be finalized the week before the call, we have confirmed at least two questions that will be asked during this call for feedback:

  • What is the best way to ensure fair representation of emerging communities among the Board?
  • What involvement should candidates have during the election?

While additional questions may be added, the Movement Strategy and Governance team wants to provide time for community members and affiliates to consider and prepare ideas on the confirmed questions before the call opens. We apologize for not having a complete list of questions at this time. The list of questions should only grow by one or two questions. The intention is to not overwhelm the community with requests, but provide notice and welcome feedback on these important questions.

Do you want to help organize local conversation during this Call?

Contact the Movement Strategy and Governance team on Meta, on Telegram, or via email at msg(_AT_)wikimedia.org.

Reach out if you have any questions or concerns. The Movement Strategy and Governance team will be minimally staffed until January 3. Please excuse any delayed response during this time. We also recognize some community members and affiliates are offline during the December holidays. We apologize if our message has reached you while you are on holiday.

Best,

Δημοσκόπηση Επιθυμιών της Κοινότητας 2022[επεξεργασία]

Community Wishlist Survey Lamp.svg

H Δημοσκόπηση Επιθυμιών της Κοινότητας 2022 έχει τώρα ανοίξει!

Η δημοσκόπηση αυτή αποτελεί την μέθοδο μέσω της οποίας οι κοινότητες αποφασίζουν σε τί θα εργαστεί η ομάδα Community Tech μέσα στην επόμενη χρονιά. Ενθαρρύνουμε όλους να συμβάλλουν με προτάσεις μέχρι τις 23 Ιανουαρίου, ή να σχολιάσουν τις υπάρχουσες προτάσεις ώστε να βελτιωθούν.

Οι κοινότητες θα μπορούν να ψηφίσουν τις προτάσεις μεταξύ 28 Ιανουαρίου και 11 Φεβρουαρίου.

Η ομάδα Community Tech εστιάζει σε εργαλεία για έμπειρους συντάκτες. Μπορείτε να συντάξετε προτάσεις σε οποιαδήποτε γλώσσα, και θα τις μεταφράσουμε για εσάς. Ευχαριστούμε και ανυπομονούμε να δούμε τις προτάσεις σας! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 23:00, 10 Ιανουαρίου 2022 (EET)Απάντηση[απάντηση]

ΣΗΜΑΝΤΙΚΟ: Επιθεώρηση δραστηριότητας διαχειριστών[επεξεργασία]

Χαίρετε! Μία πολιτική για την αφαίρεση «ανώτερων δικαιωμάτων» (διαχειριστής, γραφειοκράτης, κτλ) υιοθετήθηκε με συναίνεση της παγκόσμιας κοινότητας το 2013. Σύμφωνα με αυτή την πολιτική, οι επίτροποι επιθεωρούν την δραστηριότητα των διαχειριστών σε όλα τα wiki του ιδρύματος Wikimedia που δεν έχουν τοπική πολιτική για τους αδρανείς διαχειριστές. Σύμφωνα με όσα γνωρίζουμε, το wiki σας δεν διαθέτει επίσημη διαδικασία για την αφαίρεση «ανωτέρων δικαιωμάτων» από ανενεργούς λογαριασμούς. Αυτό σημαίνει ότι οι επίτροποι θα δράσουν σύμφωνα με την επιθεώρηση δραστηριότητας διαχειριστών.

Διαπιστώσαμε ότι οι ακόλουθοι χρήστες πληρούν τα κριτήρια αδράνειας (καμία επεξεργασία και καμία διαχειριστική δραστηριότητα για πάνω από 2 χρόνια):

  1. Glavkos (διαχειριστής)

Αυτοί οι χρήστες θα λάβουν σύντομα ειδοποίηση, που θα τους ζητά να αρχίσουν μία συζήτηση στην κοινότητα για το άν θέλουν να κρατήσουν κάποια ή όλα τα δικαιώματά τους. Αν οι χρήστες δεν ανταποκριθούν, τότε τα ανώτερα δικαιώματά τους θα αφαιρεθούν από τους επιτρόπους.

Ωστόσο, αν εσείς ως κοινότητα θέλετε να φτιάξετε τη δική σας διαδικασία επιθεώρησης δραστηριότητας που να υπερκαλύπτει την παγκόσμια, θέλετε να πάρετε άλλη απόφαση σχετικά με τους ανενεργούς κατόχους αυτών των δικαιωμάτων, ή έχετε ήδη αντίστοιχη πολιτική που την παραβλέψαμε, παρακαλούμε ειδοποιήστε τους επιτρόπους στο Meta-Wiki, έτσι ώστε να γνωρίζουμε να μην προχωρήσουμε με την επιθεώρηση δικαιωμάτων στο wiki σας.

Call for Feedback about the Board of Trustees elections is now open[επεξεργασία]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

The Call for Feedback: Board of Trustees elections is now open and will close on 7 February 2022.

With this Call for Feedback, the Movement Strategy and Governance team is taking a different approach. This approach incorporates community feedback from 2021. Instead of leading with proposals, the Call is framed around key questions from the Board of Trustees. The key questions came from the feedback about the 2021 Board of Trustees election. The intention is to inspire collective conversation and collaborative proposal development about these key questions.

Join the conversation.

Best,

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hello everyone,

A vote in SecurePoll from 7 to 21 March 2022 is scheduled as part of the ratification process for the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement guidelines. Eligible voters are invited to answer a poll question and share comments. Read voter information and eligibility details. During the poll, voters will be asked if they support the enforcement of the Universal Code of Conduct based on the proposed guidelines.

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire movement. The revised enforcement guidelines were published 24 January 2022 as a proposed way to apply the policy across the movement. A Wikimedia Foundation Board statement calls for a ratification process where eligible voters will have an opportunity to support or oppose the adoption of the UCoC Enforcement guidelines in a vote. Wikimedians are invited to translate and share important information. For more information about the UCoC, please see the project page and frequently asked questions on Meta-wiki.

There are events scheduled to learn more and discuss:

  • A community panel recorded on 18 February 2022 shares perspectives from small- and medium-sized community participants.
  • The Movement Strategy and Governance (MSG) team is hosting Conversation Hours on 4 March 2022 at 15:00 UTC. Please sign-up to interact with the project team and the drafting committee about the updated enforcement guidelines and the ratification process.

Invitation to Hubs event: Global Conversation on 2022-03-12 at 13:00 UTC[επεξεργασία]

Hello!

The Movement Strategy and Governance team of the Wikimedia Foundation would like to invite you to the next event about "Regional and Thematic Hubs". The Wikimedia Movement is in the process of understanding what Regional and Thematic Hubs should be. Our workshop in November was a good start (read the report), but we're not finished yet.

Over the last weeks we conducted about 16 interviews with groups working on establishing a Hub in their context (see Hubs Dialogue). These interviews informed a report that will serve as a foundation for discussion on March 12. The report is planned to be published on March 9.

The event will take place on March 12, 13:00 to 16:00 UTC on Zoom. Interpretation will be provided in French, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, and Portuguese. Registration is open, and will close on March 10. Anyone interested in the topic is invited to join us. More information on the event on Meta-wiki.

Revisions to the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement Guidelines[επεξεργασία]

Hello all,

We'd like to provide an update on the work on the Enforcement Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct. After the conclusion of the community vote on the guidelines in March, the Community Affairs committee (CAC) of the Board asked that several areas of the guidelines be reviewed for improvements before the Board does its final review. These areas were identified based on community discussions and comments provided during the vote. The CAC also requested review of the controversial Note in 3.1 of the UCoC itself.

Once more, a big thank you to all who voted, especially to all who left constructive feedback and comments! The project team is working with the Board to establish a timeline for this work, and will communicate this next month.

Members of the two prior UCoC Drafting Committees have generously offered their time to help shape improvements to the Guidelines. You can read more about them and their work here, as well as read summaries of their weekly meetings in 2022.

Wikimedians have provided many valuable comments together with the vote and in other conversations. Given the size and diversity of the Wikimedia community, there are even more voices out there who can give ideas on how to improve the enforcement guidelines and add even more valuable ideas to the process. To help the Revisions committee identify improvements, input on several questions for the committee’s review is requested. Visit the Meta-wiki pages (Enforcement Guidelines revision discussions, Policy text revision discussions) to get your ideas to the Committee - it is very important that viewpoints are heard from different communities before the Committee begins drafting revision proposals.

On behalf of the UCoC project team

Hi all,

Community members in the 2022 Board of Trustees election are invited to propose statements to use in the Election Compass.

An Election Compass is a tool to help voters select the candidates that best align with their beliefs and views. The community members will propose statements for the candidates to answer using a Lickert scale (agree/neutral/disagree). The candidates’ answers to the statements will be loaded into the Election Compass tool. Voters will use the tool by entering in their answer to the statements (agree/disagree/neutral). The results will show the candidates that best align with the voter’s beliefs and views.

Here is the timeline for the Election Compass
  • July 8 - 20: Community members propose statements for the Election Compass
  • July 21 - 22: Elections Committee reviews statements for clarity and removes off-topic statements
  • July 23 - August 1: Volunteers vote on the statements
  • August 2 - 4: Elections Committee selects the top 15 statements
  • August 5 - 12: candidates align themselves with the statements
  • August 15: The Election Compass opens for voters to use to help guide their voting decision

The Elections Committee will select the top 15 statements at the beginning of August. The Elections Committee will oversee the process, supported by the Movement Strategy and Governance team. MSG will check that the questions are clear, there are no duplicates, no typos, and so on.

Best,

Movement Strategy and Governance

Invitation to join the Movement Strategy Forum[επεξεργασία]

Πρότυπο:More languages

Hello everyone,

The Movement Strategy Forum (MS Forum) is a multilingual collaborative space for all conversations about Movement Strategy implementation.

We are inviting all Movement participants to collaborate on the MS Forum. The goal of the forum is to build community collaboration, using an inclusive multilingual platform.

The Movement Strategy is a collaborative effort to imagine and build the future of the Wikimedia Movement. Anyone can contribute to the Movement Strategy, from a comment to a full-time project.

Join this forum with your Wikimedia account, engage in conversations, and ask questions in your language.

The Movement Strategy and Governance team (MSG) launched the proposal for the MS Forum in May 2022. There was a 2-month community review period, which ended on 24 July 2022. The community review process included several questions that resulted in interesting conversations. You can read the Community Review Report.

We look forward to seeing you at the MS Forum!

Best regards,

the Movement Strategy and Governance Team

The Vector 2022 skin as the default in two weeks?[επεξεργασία]

The slides for our presentation at Wikimania 2022

Hello. I'm writing on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Web team. In two weeks, we would like to make the Vector 2022 skin the default on this wiki.

We have been working on it for the past three years. So far, it has been the default on more than 30 wikis, including sister projects, all accounting for more than 1 billion pageviews per month. On average 87% of active logged-in users of those wikis use Vector 2022.

It would become the default for all logged-out users, and also all logged-in users who currently use Vector legacy. Logged-in users can at any time switch to any other skins. No changes are expected for users of these skins.

About the skin[επεξεργασία]

[Why is a change necessary] The current default skin meets the needs of the readers and editors as these were 13 years ago. Since then, new users have begun using Wikimedia projects. The old Vector doesn't meet their needs.

[Objective] The objective for the new skin is to make the interface more welcoming and comfortable for readers and useful for advanced users. It draws inspiration from previous requests, the Community Wishlist Surveys, and gadgets and scripts. The work helped our code follow the standards and improve all other skins. We reduced PHP code in Wikimedia deployed skins by 75%. The project has also focused on making it easier to support gadgets and use APIs.

[Changes and test results] The skin introduces a series of changes that improve readability and usability. The new skin does not remove any functionality currently available on the Vector skin.

  • The sticky header makes it easier to find tools that editors use often. It decreases scrolling to the top of the page by 16%.
  • The new table of contents makes it easier to navigate to different sections. Readers and editors jumped to different sections of the page 50% more than with the old table of contents. It also looks a bit different on talk pages.
  • The new search bar is easier to find and makes it easier to find the correct search result from the list. This increased the amount of searches started by 30% on the wikis we tested on.
  • The skin does not negatively affect pageviews, edit rates, or account creation. There is evidence of increases in pageviews and account creation across partner communities.

[Try it out] Try out the new skin by going to the appearance tab in your preferences and selecting Vector 2022 from the list of skins.

How can editors change and customize this skin?[επεξεργασία]

It's possible to configure and personalize our changes. We support volunteers who create new gadgets and user scripts. Check out our repository for a list of currently available customizations, or add your own.

Our plan[επεξεργασία]

If no large concerns are raised, we plan on deploying in the week of October 3, 2022. If your community would like to request more time to discuss the changes, hit the button and write to us. We can adjust the calendar.

If you'd like ask our team anything, if you have questions, concerns, or additional thoughts, please ping me here or write on the talk page of the project. We will gladly answer! Also, see our FAQ. Thank you! SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 07:14, 22 Σεπτεμβρίου 2022 (EEST)Απάντηση[απάντηση]

Invitation to attend “Ask Me Anything about Movement Charter” Sessions[επεξεργασία]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Hello all,

During the 2022 Wikimedia Summit, the Movement Charter Drafting Committee (MCDC) presented the first outline of the Movement Charter, giving a glimpse on the direction of its future work, and the Charter itself. The MCDC then integrated the initial feedback collected during the Summit. Before proceeding with writing the Charter for the whole Movement, the MCDC wants to interact with community members and gather feedback on the drafts of the three sections: Preamble, Values & Principles, and Roles & Responsibilities (intentions statement). The Movement Charter drafts will be available on the Meta page here on November 14, 2022. Community wide consultation period on MC will take place from November 20 to December 18, 2022. Learn more about it here.

With the goal of ensuring that people are well informed to fully participate in the conversations and are empowered to contribute their perspective on the Movement Charter, three “Ask Me Anything about Movement Charter" sessions have been scheduled in different time zones. Everyone in the Wikimedia Movement is invited to attend these conversations. The aim is to learn about Movement Charter - its goal, purpose, why it matters, and how it impacts your community. MCDC members will attend these sessions to answer your questions and hear community feedback.

The “Ask Me Anything” sessions accommodate communities from different time zones. Only the presentation of the session is recorded and shared afterwards, no recording of conversations. Below is the list of planned events:

  • Asia/Pacific: November 4, 2022 at 09:00 UTC (your local time). Interpretation is available in Chinese and Japanese.
  • Europe/MENA/Sub Saharan Africa: November 12, 2022 at 15:00 UTC (your local time). Interpretation is available in Arabic, French and Russian.
  • North and South America/ Western Europe: November 12, 2022 at 15:00 UTC (your local time). Interpretation is available in Spanish and Portuguese.

On the Meta page you will find more details; Zoom links will be shared 48 hours ahead of the call.

Call for Movement Charter Ambassadors

Individuals or groups from all communities who wish to help include and start conversations in their communities on the Movement Charter are encouraged to become Movement Charter Ambassadors (MC Ambassadors). MC Ambassadors will carry out their own activities and get financial support for enabling conversations in their own languages. Regional facilitators from the Movement Strategy and Governance team are available to support applicants with MC Ambassadors grantmaking. If you are interested please sign up here. Should you have specific questions, please reach out to the MSG team via email: strategy2030@wikimedia.org or on the MS forum.

We thank you for your time and participation.

On behalf of the Movement Charter Drafting Committee,

Apply for Funding through the Movement Strategy Community Engagement Package to Support Your Community[επεξεργασία]

Πρότυπο:More languages

The Wikimedia Movement Strategy implementation is a collaborative effort for all Wikimedians. Movement Strategy Implementation Grants support projects that take the current state of a Movement Strategy Initiative and push it one step forward. If you are looking for an example or some guide on how to engage your community further on Movement Strategy and the Movement Strategy Implementation Grants specifically, you may find this community engagement package helpful.

The goal of this community engagement package is to support more people to access the funding they might need for the implementation work. By becoming a recipient of this grant, you will be able to support other community members to develop further grant applications that fit with your local contexts to benefit your own communities. With this package, the hope is to break down language barriers and to ensure community members have needed information on Movement Strategy to connect with each other. Movement Strategy is a two-way exchange, we can always learn more from the experiences and knowledge of Wikimedians everywhere. We can train and support our peers by using this package, so more people can make use of this great funding opportunity.

If this information interests you or if you have any further thoughts or questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us as your regional facilitators to discuss further.

Opportunities open for the Ombuds commission and the Case Review Committee[επεξεργασία]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

Περισσότερες γλώσσεςPlease help translate to your language

Hi everyone! The Ombuds commission (OC) and the Case Review Committee (CRC) are looking for members. People are encouraged to nominate themselves or encourage others they feel would contribute to these groups to do so. There is more information below about the opportunity and the skills that are needed.

About the Ombuds commission

The Ombuds commission (OC) works on all Wikimedia projects to investigate complaints about violations of the privacy policy, especially in use of CheckUser and Oversight (also known as Suppression) tools. The Commission mediates between the parties of the investigation and, when violations of the policies are identified, advises the Wikimedia Foundation on best handling. They may also assist the General Counsel, the Chief Executive Officer, or the Board of Trustees of the Foundation in these investigations when legally necessary. For more on the OC's duties and roles, see Ombuds commission on Meta-Wiki.

Volunteers serving in this role should be experienced Wikimedians, active on any project, who have previously used the CheckUser/Oversight tools OR who have the technical ability to understand these tools and the willingness to learn them. They must be able to communicate in English, the common language of the commission. They are expected to be able to engage neutrally in investigating these concerns and to know when to recuse when other roles and relationships may cause conflict. Commissioners will serve two-year terms (note that this is different from past years, when the terms have been for one year).

About the Case Review Committee

The Case Review Committee (CRC) reviews appeals of eligible Trust & Safety office actions. The CRC is a critical layer of oversight to ensure that Wikimedia Foundation office actions are fair and unbiased. They also make sure the Wikimedia Foundation doesn’t overstep established practices or boundaries. For more about the role, see Case Review Committee on Meta-Wiki.

We are looking for current or former functionaries and experienced volunteers with an interest in joining this group. Applicants must be fluent in English (additional languages are a strong plus) and willing to abide by the terms of the Committee charter. If the work resonates and you qualify, please apply. Committee members will serve two-year terms (note that this is different from past years, when the terms have been for one year).

Applying to join either of these groups

Members are required to sign the Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information and must be willing to comply with the appropriate Wikimedia Foundation board policies (such as the access to non-public information policy and the Foundation privacy policy). These positions requires a high degree of discretion and trust. Members must also be over 18 years of age.

If you are interested in serving in either capacity listed above, please write in English to the Trust and Safety team at ca(_AT_)wikimedia.org (to apply to the OC) or to the Legal Team at legal(_AT_)wikimedia.org (to apply to the CRC) with information about:

  • Your primary projects
  • Languages you speak/write
  • Any experience you have serving on committees, whether movement or non-movement
  • Your thoughts on what you could bring to the OC or CRC if appointed
  • Any experience you have with the Checkuser or Oversight tools (OC only)
  • Any other information you think is relevant

The deadline for applications is 31 December 2022 in any timezone.

Please feel free to pass this invitation along to any users who you think may be qualified and interested. Thank you!

On behalf of the Committee Support team,
