Improved search in deleted pages archiveRediger

Hjælp venligst med at oversætte til dit sprog

During Wikimedia Hackathon 2016, the Discovery team worked on one of the items on the 2015 community wishlist, namely enabling searching the archive of deleted pages. This feature is now ready for production deployment, and will be enabled on all wikis, except Wikidata.

Right now, the feature is behind a feature flag - to use it on your wiki, please go to the Special:Undelete page, and add &fuzzy=1 to the URL, like this: https://test.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3AUndelete&fuzzy=1. Then search for the pages you're interested in. There should be more results than before, due to using ElasticSearch indexing (via the CirrusSearch extension).

We plan to enable this improved search by default on all wikis soon (around August 1, 2017). If you have any objections to this - please raise them with the Discovery team via email or on this announcement's discussion page. Like most Mediawiki configuration parameters, the functionality can be configured per wiki. Once the improved search becomes the default, you can still access the old mode using &fuzzy=0 in the URL, like this: https://test.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3AUndelete&fuzzy=0

Please note that since Special:Undelete is an admin-only feature, this search capability is also only accessible to wiki admins.

Standardisering af domsnavngivningRediger

Wikisource har en del danske domme, kendelser og andre retsdokumenter, hvoraf de fleste er oprettet af TorbenTT og nogle få af mig selv. De tilhørende sider er navngivet på mange forskellige måder:

Med henblik på at mindske forvirring foreslår jeg at vi forsøger at finde på en standardisering af hvordan domme og kendelser navngives. Jeg har 3 bud på hvordan vi kan gøre:

Kaldenavn hvis muligt, ellers sagsnummer
Hvis sagen har et almindeligt kendt kaldenavn anvendes dette, f.eks. Maastrichtsagen. Hvis der ikke er noget almindeligt kaldenavn bruges det "lange format", enten <domstol>s dom af <dato> i <sagsnummer> eller <domstol>s dom af <dato> i <sagsnummer>, <partsnavne>.
Altid sagsnummer, kaldenavn omdirigerer til sagsnummer
Alle sager angives i det "lange format" og kaldenavene omdirigerer til disse.
Altid sagsnummer, kaldenavnet står i parentes
Alle sager angives i det "lange format", men kaldenavnet angives i parentes til sidst. F.eks. Højesterets dom af 13. februar 1989 i sag nr. I 279/1988, Rigsadvokaten mod Jens Olaf Jersild og Lasse Jensen (Grønjakkesagen). Der omdirigeres stadigvæk fra kaldenavnet.

Personligt er jeg mest til nr. 3 eller nr. 2. Kaldenavne er hvordan sagerne kendes i offentligheden, men de er ikke officielle. Derfor synes jeg det er et fint kompromis at der omdirigeres til sagens korrekte navn med sagsnummer og muligvis partsnavne og at kaldenavnet evt. står i parentes til sidst. Hvis der er opbakning til et af disse bør vi også beslutte en standardisering af det "lange format", der er f.eks. forskel på hvordan de ovennævnte domme fra år 2000 og 1988 er formateret. Jeg ser frem til at høre jeres feedback. InsaneHacker (diskussion) 24. nov 2017, 12:21 (UTC)

Tak for at rejse spørgsmålet. Ja det er lidt svært hvad man skal kalde dem når de ikke har noget rigtigt navn, vi har jo ikke som i f.eks. de engelsksprogede lande et fast systematik for navngivning af domme. Det er vel rigtigt at kaldenavnet ikke er officielt for de har ikke noget officielt navn som sådan. Sagsnumre bruges vel officielt af retten selv og parterne i sagen men praktikere næsten aldrig når der henvises til afgørelser.
Standard praksis i dansk retslitteratur er at henvise til <tidskrift fortortelse>.<årgang>.<sidetal><forkortelse af instans og evt. afgørelsestype> og ofte også et kaldenavn hvis det findes. Sagnumre bruges stort set aldrig dog nogen gange ved henvisning til utrykte afgørelser, og selv her henvises der oftest kun til instans og dato. At følge denne praksis er jo også en mulighed (Dette rejser jo i øvrigt det spørgsmål hvilket man skal vælge hvis de er trykt flere tidsskrifter hvilket de ofte på visse områder. f. eks. TfS og SKM på skatteområdet). De fleste afgørelser her er ikke taget fra tidsskrifterne men domsudskrifter. Og hos dem der er er domshovedet og noter fjernet grundet udgiverns ophavsret til disse.
Problemet med sags dato og nr. er at det intet siger om sagen. Sagsnummeret er en teknisk detalje som ikke er specielt interresant og som de færreste husker. Det vil altså betyde at for at finde frem til afgørelsen her på wikisource først skal slå op hvad sagsnr. den har eller dato den er afsagt. Dem der kender sagen eller har hørt om den vil derimod genkende kaldenavnet. Navnene bør gøre det nemt for folk at finde frem til det de søger. Derfor foretrækker jeg kaldenavnene når de forefindes alternativt partsbetegnelsen da den dels er nemmere genkendelig end nogle tal og dels kan sige noget om sagen. Afgørelsessdato og sagsnr. er sidste udvej.
Højesteret selv har henvist til Maastrictsagen med denne betegnelse i præmisserne for Lissabonsagen, såvel formalitetssagen og realitetssagen henvist til Maastrict-sagen hhv. Maastricht-dommen.
Partsbetegnelser kan være et alternativ til kaldenavnet. Det er praksis i mange retssystemer at referere til sagerne efter partsbetegnelsen. Det er dog ikke altid brugbart særligt Straffesager er oftest anonymiseret og Anklagemyndigheden mod T indentificerer ikke sagen og siger heller ikke en noget udover at det er en straffesag. Et andet problem er at partbetegnelsen kan variere i løbet af sagen f.eks i grønjakkesagen hvor der i første instans er 3 andre tiltalte. I nogen tilfælde er kaldenavnet navnet på den ene part f.eks. Ove Guldberg-sagen i så fald er det måske bedre at bruge partsbetegnelsen så det er Ove Guldberg mod Indenrigsministeriet?
Et andet spørgsmål man kan overveje er om der skal anvendes forkortelser, skal vi sige Højesterets dom og Østre Landsrets kendelse eller forkorte de til HD og ØLK?
I nogen sager er der flere afgørelser i samme sag, f.eks er der i Christianiasagen ud over hovedafgørelsen afsagt 7 højesteretskendelser trykt i ugeskriftet, så for at kunne differencere mellem dem foreslår jeg at der kan tilføres et stikord i parentes til sidst f.eks.: "Xsagen: højesterets kendelse af xx. måned yyyy (Vidneførelse)"
Mit forslag til en standard
<kaldenavn eller partsbetegnelse (hvis meningsfuld)>: <instans><dom/kendelse/beslutning> af <dato><sagsnr. (hvis intet kaldenavn eller meningsfuld partbetegnelse)><(evt. supplerende stikord)>.
Ekempler: Maastrichtsagen -> Maastrichtsagen: Højesterets Dom af 6. april 1998 (Realiteten), Kranførersagen -> Kranførersagen: Vestre Landsrets kendelse af 16. maj 1944, Højesterets dom af 13. februar 1989 i sag nr. I 279/1988, Rigsadvokaten mod Jens Olaf Jersild og Lasse Jensen -> Grønjakkesagen: Højesterets dom af 13. februar 1989, Retten i Nibes dom af 12. januar 2001 i sag nr. SS 240-2000 forbliver som den er. Østre Landsrets kendelse af 14. september 2000. 3. afd. nr. B-0855-00: Folkebevægelsen mod EU m.fl. mod Statsminister Poul Nyrup Rasmussen -> Folkebevægelsen mod EU m.fl. mod Statsminister Poul Nyrup Rasmussen: Østre Landsrets kendelse af 14. september 2000
Summa summarum altid domstol og dato, kaldenavn eller partbetegnelse når de findes/giver mening, sagsnr kun når der ikke er andet til at differenciere. Et stikord i parentes til at differencere afgørelsen når der er flere afgørelser i samme sag. TorbenTT (diskussion) 25. nov 2017, 16:09 (UTC)
Din standard lyder fornuftig, det kan være at jeg en gang i mellem vil skulle forhøre mig om hvorvidt en sag har et kaldenavn eller om partsnavnene er meningsfulde, men det går nok :). Ifht. de forskellige tidsskrifter så mener jeg ikke at vi bør bruge dem til navngivning, bla. fordi de kan være nævnt i flere tidsskrifter som du selv nævner. I stedet kan de bruges som nyttige omdirigeringer. F.eks. har jeg gjort så UfR 1989.399 H omdirigerer til Grønjakkesagen. Jeg vil følge din standard fremover. Jeg tænker det er en god ide at oprette en stilmanual på sigt så nye brugere kan have et overblik over navngivning og formatering. InsaneHacker (diskussion) 25. nov 2017, 16:27 (UTC)
Lige noget opklarende. Skal vi kun bruge denne standard til navngivning af siden, eller skal det også være det der står som titel i Skabelon:Header? InsaneHacker (diskussion) 25. nov 2017, 16:30 (UTC)
Begge dele tænker jeg, jeg har tidligere givet dem en længere titel i header men det er vel ikke nødvendigt når informationen er i titlen. Hvad synes du? TorbenTT (diskussion) 25. nov 2017, 16:44 (UTC)

(Hjælp venligst med at oversætte til dit sprog)

Hi all,

as announced previously, permission handling for CSS/JS pages has changed: only members of the interface-admin (Grænsesnitadministratorer) group, and a few highly privileged global groups such as stewards, can edit CSS/JS pages that they do not own (that is, any page ending with .css or .js that is either in the MediaWiki: namespace or is another user's user subpage). This is done to improve the security of readers and editors of Wikimedia projects. More information is available at Creation of separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JS. If you encounter any unexpected problems, please contact me or file a bug.

Thanks!

Words hyphenated across pages in Wikisource are now joinedRediger

Hi, this is a message by Can da Lua as discussed here for wikisource communities

The ProofreadPage extension can now join together a word that is split between a page and the next.

In the past, when a page was ending with "concat-" and the next page was beginning with "enation", the resulting transclusion would have been "concat- enation", and a special template like d:Q15630535 had to be used to obtain the word "concatenation".

Now the default behavior has changed: the hyphen at the end of a page is suppressed and in this case no space is inserted, so the result of the transclusion will be: "concatenation", without the need of a template. The "joiner" character is defined by default as "-" (the regular hyphen), but it is possible to change this. A template may still be needed to deal with particular cases when the hyphen needs to be preserved.

Please share this information with your community.

Selection of the Wikisource Community User Group representative to the Wikimedia SummitRediger

Dear all,

Sorry for writing in English and cross-posting this message.

The Wikisource Community User Group could send one representative to the Wikimedia Summit 2019 (formerly "Wikimedia Conference"). The Wikimedia Summit is a yearly conference of all organizations affiliated to the Wikimedia Movement (including our Wikisource Community User Group). It is a great place to talk about Wikisource needs to the chapters and other user groups that compose the Wikimedia movement. For context, there is a short report on what happened last year. The deadline is short and to avoid the confusing vote on the Wikisource-I mailing list of last year, we created a page on meta to decide who will be the representative of the user group to the Wikimedia Summit.

The vote will be in two parts:

  1. until December 7th, people can add their name and a short explanation on who they are and why they want to go to the summit. Nomination of other people is allowed, the nominated person should accept their nomination.
  2. starting December 7th, and for a week, the community vote to designate the representative.

Please feel free to ask any question on the wikisource-I mailing list or on the talk page.

Input ang. affiliate-udvalgte bestyrelsesmedlemmer 2019Rediger

Wikimedia Foundation, organisationen der står for driften af Wikipedia og Wikipedias søsterprojekter, og som Wikimedia Danmark er et "chapter" af, ledes af en bestyrelse på 10 personer. Fem af disse personer vælges af Wikimedia-bevægelsen, enten gennem direkte valg (3 personer) eller af Wikimedia affiliate-organisationer (2 personer). Begge typer positioner vælges hvert tredje år, dog forskudt med et år.

I 2019 skal affiliate-organisationerne vælge to personer til bestyrelsen. Fra den 15. til 30. april stiller kandiaterne op på meta-wiki, hvor man også kan stille dem spørgsmål. En kandidat skal være godkendt (endorsed) af 2 affiliate-organisationer for at kunne stille op. Fra den 1. til 7. maj "låses" listen over kandidater, og fællesskabet kan granske dem nærmere. Fra den 8. til 31. maj kan affiliate-organisationerne stemme på de kandidater, de ønsker skal sidde i bestyrelsen. Afstemningen anvender rangorden-systemet (single transferable vote)

Wikimedia Danmark er som chapter berettiget til at deltage i processen. Beslutningen om godkendelse (endorsement) af kandidater og hvem der stemmes på, træffes af bestyrelsen, men vi hører meget gerne fra medlemmer af foreningen samt fra det danske Wikimedia-miljø, hvis der er bestemte kandidater som man mener vi bør godkende eller stemme på. Skriv her eller på WikimediaDK-diskussionslisten med forslag. -- InsaneHacker (diskussion) 19. apr 2019, 13:15 (UTC)

WMDK-legater til Wikimania 2019Rediger

Fra den 14. til den 18. august 2019 afvikles Wikimania-konferencen i Stockholm. Konferencen er en samling af alle interessenter i Wikimedia-bevægelsen, og årets tema er Stronger Together: Wikimedia, Free Knowledge and the Sustainable Development Goals, en anskuelse af Wikimedia-bevægelsen ud fra FN's verdensmål.

Wikimedia Danmark agter at stille 3 legater af 2000 kr. til rådighed, hvilket er nok til at dække registreringsomkostningerne for hovedkonferencen d. 16.-18. august (midlerne må dog også gerne anvendes til deltagelse i konferencens "pre-days" d. 14.-15. august), samt en del af rejseomkostningerne. Legaterne er tiltænkt personer der er aktive i det danske Wikimedia-miljø. Modtagere vil skulle forpligte sig til at anvende midlerne til deltagelse i Wikimania-konferencen, og at dokumentere denne anvendelse af midlerne. Personer der allerede har tilmeldt sig konferencen kan også ansøge med henblik på at få dækket nogle af omkostningerne.

Interesserede bedes sende en email til bestyrelse wikimedia.dk med en kort beskrivelse af dem selv og deres tilknytning til det danske Wikimedia-miljø senest den 10. juni. Ansøgere til legaterne indvilliger i, at oplyse deres identitet og andre relevante informationer. De, der bliver valgt, vil blive kontaktet senest den 15. juni med henblik på at fastlægge det praktiske.

Update on the consultation about office actionsRediger

Hello all,

Last month, the Wikimedia Foundation's Trust & Safety team announced a future consultation about partial and/or temporary office actions. We want to let you know that the draft version of this consultation has now been posted on Meta.

This is a draft. It is not intended to be the consultation itself, which will be posted on Meta likely in early September. Please do not treat this draft as a consultation. Instead, we ask your assistance in forming the final language for the consultation.

For that end, we would like your input over the next couple of weeks about what questions the consultation should ask about partial and temporary Foundation office action bans and how it should be formatted. Please post it on the draft talk page. Our goal is to provide space for the community to discuss all the aspects of these office actions that need to be discussed, and we want to ensure with your feedback that the consultation is presented in the best way to encourage frank and constructive conversation.

Please visit the consultation draft on Meta-wiki and leave your comments on the draft’s talk page about what the consultation should look like and what questions it should ask.

Thank you for your input! -- The Trust & Safety team 16. aug 2019, 08:03 (UTC)

Wikisource Conference in WarsawRediger

Dear Wikisource Community,

Meeting the Wikisource community expectations, we are working with Wikimedia Polska and Wikimedia Foundation on organiziing the 2nd Wikisource Conference in Warsaw. We already had a survey that showed high interest in the Conference within the community. We also had recently a meeting on the conference organization process and its requirements. However, we are still at a very early stage of the Conference organization process. But we are hoping this event will happen in September this year.

In order to apply for Wikimedia Foundation support, we need some input from the community about the Conference goals and the community expectations. If you are a wikisourcian, you wish to participate the conference or you wish to help the Wikisource community that the conference take place, please fill the short survey linked below before January 29 (due to short deadline for grant applications). Please, also share this request among Your communities. Here is the link to the survey

You might know the new interface for edit conflicts (currently a beta feature). Now, Wikimedia Germany is designing an additional interface to solve edit conflicts on talk pages. This interface is shown to you when you write on a discussion page and another person writes a discussion post in the same line and saves it before you do. With this additional editing conflict interface you can adjust the order of the comments and edit your comment. We are inviting everyone to have a look at the planned feature.

The Community Tech team has just launched a new initiative to improve Wikisource. We will be addressing five separate wishes, which came out of the 2020 Community Wishlist Survey, and we want you to be a part of the process! The projects include the following:

For the first project, the team will focus on the #1 wish: improve ebook exports. We have created a project page, which includes an analysis of the ebook export process. We now invite everyone to visit the page and share their feedback on the project talk page. Please let us know what you think of our analysis; we want to hear from all of you! Furthermore, we hope that you will participate in the other Wikisource improvement projects, which we’ll address in the future. Thank you in advance and we look forward to reading your feedback on the ebook export improvement talk page!

Feedback on movement namesRediger

Hello. Apologies if you are not reading this message in your native language. Hjælp venligst med at oversætte til dit sprog if necessary. Tak!

There are a lot of conversations happening about the future of our movement names. We hope that you are part of these discussions and that your community is represented.

Since 16 June, the Foundation Brand Team has been running a survey in 7 languages about 3 naming options. There are also community members sharing concerns about renaming in a Community Open Letter.

Our goal in this call for feedback is to hear from across the community, so we encourage you to participate in the survey, the open letter, or both. The survey will go through 7 July in all timezones. Input from the survey and discussions will be analyzed and published on Meta-Wiki.

Thanks for thinking about the future of the movement, --The Brand Project team, 2. jul 2020, 19:39 (UTC)

Note: The survey is conducted via a third-party service, which may subject it to additional terms. For more information on privacy and data-handling, see the survey privacy statement.

Note: This message is in English, but we encourage translation into other languages. Thank you!

Hello, everyone!

I am pleased to announce that the Community Tech team at WMF has posted our August update on the Wikisource Ebook Export Improvement project! This project came out of our 2020 Community Wishlist Survey, and it was the #1 wish voted on by survey participants.

So, what does this mean? In short, we want your feedback! Now that we have posted the August update, we want to know what you think. The update includes findings from our community consultation, results from two separate analyses conducted by the team (on improving WSExport reliability & font rendering support), and proposed next steps. It is our hope that people can read our analysis, share their feedback, and engage in a conversation with us on the talk page. Your feedback will be invaluable, and it will help determine the next steps of the project.

Thank you to everyone who has participated in the consultation so far! It's been a joy to explore how we can improve the ebook export experience. Now, we look forward to reading a new round of feedback on the project talk page!

Wikisource Pagelist Widget: Ready to be enabledRediger

Note: This message is in English, but we encourage translation into other languages. Thank you!

Hello everyone,

We are excited to announce that the Wikisource Pagelist widget is now available to be enabled on all Wikisources. Any interface admin on your wiki can enable it by using the instructions on the following page:

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Help:Extension:ProofreadPage/Pagelist_widget

In case, your wiki doesn’t have an interface admin, reach out to us on the ‘Help with enabling the widget on your wiki’ section of the project talk page and we will connect you with a global interface admin:

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Wikisource_Pagelist_Widget#Help_with_enabling_the_widget_on_your_wiki

You will need to hold a local discussion around what would be the labels for different page types in your language for the visual mode. (For example, ToC = ਤਤਕਰਾ in Punjabi, title = শিরোনাম in Bengali)

Feel free to also give us any feedback on the project talk page on Meta-Wiki as well.

Regards

Wikisource Pagelist Widget: Wikisource Meetup (29th September 2020)Rediger

Hello everyone,

We hope you are doing well!

We reached out to you a couple of weeks ago to share that Wikisource Pagelist Widget is now ready to be enabled to Wikisource. Since then, many language Wikisources have enabled the widget but many are yet to do so.

So, we have decided to organize a Wikisource Meetup to give a live demonstration on how to use the widget in both wikitext and visual modes. There will be some time for the participants to share their feedback and experience with the widget. We will also provide support in case some Wikisource communities are seeking help in enabling the widget.

The meetup will take place on 29 September 2020 at 9:30 AM UTC or 3 PM IST. Google Meet link for the meeting is: http://meet.google.com/khu-dfph-qsd

Looking forward to seeing the global Wikisource community connect amid these difficult times when physical meetings have not been taking place.

P.S. If you are planning to attend this meetup and are comfortable in sharing your email address then send us your confirmation in the form of a small email to sgill@wikimedia.org, this will help us in getting a sense of the number of people that are planning to show-up. We are aware that this time-zone is not convenient for everyone and more meetups can be organized in the future.

Regards

Proposal: Set two-letter project shortcuts as alias to project namespace globallyRediger

Hjælp venligst med at oversætte til dit sprog

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, Wikisource 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 consultationsRediger

Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2Rediger

Hjælp venligst med at oversætte til dit sprog

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 applicationsRediger

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 / translatorsRediger

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.

Update on the OCR ImprovementsRediger

Hello! Sorry for writing in English. Hjælp venligst med at oversætte til dit sprog.

The OCR Improvements are complete. We, the Community Tech team, are grateful for your feedback from the beginning to the last stage when we were finalizing the interface.

Engine improvementsRediger

Reliability

Prior to our work, the OCR tools were separate gadgets. We have added "Wikimedia OCR." It is available under one icon inside the toolbar on all Wikisource wikis. This tool supports two other OCR tools, Tesseract and Google OCR. We expect these tools to be more stable. We will maintain Wikimedia OCR.

The gadgets will remain available. The communities will have sovereignty over when to enable or disable these.

Speed

Prior to this work, transcription would take upwards of 40 seconds. Our improvements average a transcription time under 4 seconds.

Advanced Tools improvementsRediger

Multiple-language support

Documents with multiple languages can be transcribed in a new way.

  1. Open the Advanced Options
  2. Select the Languages (optional) field
  3. Search for and enter the languages in order of prevalence in the document.
Cropping tool / Multi-column support

We have included a Cropper tool. It allows to select regions to transcribe on pages with complicated layouts.

Discoverability and accessibility of OCR

We have added an interface for new users. It is pulsating blue dots over the new icon in the toolbar. The new interface explains what OCR means and what transcription means in Wikisource.

We believe that you will do even more great things because of these changes. We also hope to see you at the 2022 Community Wishlist Survey. Thanks you again for all your opinions and support.

Please share your opinions on the project talk page!

Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election has come to an endRediger

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.

Feel free to drop me a message on my talk page, telegram (@satdeep) or via email (sgillSkabelon:@wikimedia.org) to add your email address to the calendar invite.

Maryana is hoping to learn more about the Wikisource community and the project at this event and it would be really nice if you can share your answers to the following questions:

  • What motivates you to contribute to Wikisource?
  • What makes the Wikisource community special?
  • What are the major challenges facing the movement going forward?
  • What are your questions to Maryana?

You can share your responses during the live event but in case the date and the time doesn't work for you, you can share your responses on the event page on Wikisource or in case you would like to remain anonymous, you can share your responses directly with me.

Also, feel free to reach out to me in case you would like to give a short presentation about your and your community's work at the beginning of the session.

We are running a poll to find the best date and time to organize the second birthday party on the weekend right after 24th November. Please share your availability on the following link by next Friday:

Upcoming Call for Feedback about the Board of Trustees electionsRediger

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 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.

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,

Movement Strategy and Governance

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. See the Conversation Hour summaries for notes from 4 February 2022 and 25 February 2022.

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.

Invitation to join the first Wikisource Triage meeting on 21st March 2022Rediger

Hello everyone,

Sam Wilson and I are excited to share that we will be hosting regular Wikisource Triage meetings, starting from 21st March 2022.

These meetings aim to foster the growth of a technical community of Wikisource developers and contributors. The meetings will be primarily focused on identifying, prioritizing and estimating tasks on the All-and-every-Wikisource and ProofreadPage workboards (among others) on Phabricator and eventually reduce the backlog of technical tasks and bugs related to Wikisource by making incremental improvements to Wikisource infrastructure and coordinating these changes with the Wikisource communities.

While these meetings are technology focused, non-technical Wikisource contributors are also invited to join and share any technical challenges that they are facing and we will help them to create phabricator tickets. Newbie developers are also more than welcome!

The first meeting has been scheduled for 21st March 2022 at 10:30 AM UTC / 4:00 PM IST (Check your local time). If you are interested in joining the meeting, kindly leave a message on sgill@wikimedia.org and we will add you to the calendar invite.

Meanwhile, feel free to check out the page on Meta-wiki and suggest topics for the agenda.

Revisions to the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) Enforcement GuidelinesRediger

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.

Propose statements for the 2022 Election CompassRediger

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

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 ForumRediger

Skabelon: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

Invitation to attend “Ask Me Anything about Movement Charter” SessionsRediger

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 CommunityRediger

Skabelon: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. We will be more than happy to support you. When you are ready, follow the steps on this page to apply. We look forward to receiving your application.

Best regards,

Opportunities open for the Ombuds commission and the Case Review CommitteeRediger

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 wikimedia.org (to apply to the OC) or to the Legal Team at legal 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,
