Sunday January 10 Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network meetingEdit

 
Into the blue.

The Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network (SWAN) is a developing forum for all Wikimedia movement affiliates to share ideas on the Wikimedia 2030 strategy process. It expands on the model of the All-Affiliates Brand Meeting to help lay some of the groundwork for a future Global Council.

Following up on the August, September, October, and November SWAN meetings, and June's All-Affiliates Brand Meeting, as well as strategic and outreach topics of mutual concern to all affiliates including SWAN input on Interim Global Council and Movement Charter, this month we are meeting on Sunday January 10, and you are all invited to RSVP here.

To start the exchange of ideas on the IGC early, and to help prepare before the SWAN calls, we have set up and invite everyone to participate at this etherpad. If you like a more interactive way of discussing, we have also made a jamboard. Check here for more details.

Wiki Loves Earth in Tunisia 2021Edit

Dear Wikimedia TN user groups members ; We are glad to announce that we will organize Wiki loves earth 2021 in Tunisia project, we also have submitted a rapid grant for this event, your comments and feedback are welcomed Houss 2020 (talk) 15:39, 19 March 2021 (UTC)

Dear Houssem, Wikimedia Tunisia is not against non-Wikimedia Tunisia initiatives for the advancement of the wiki movement in Tunisia and recommends the allocation of grants to confirmed users to ensure the success of events in our country but, I would like to clarify some points:

  1. All the grants that Wikimedia Tunisia applies for must go through our fiscal sponsor CLibre, this decision was taking following an incident that caused a conflict in the team.
  2. We would be grateful if you could inform the board and the members of the user group before applying for the grants and not after to avoid any misunderstanding.
  3. Such an initiative must be supported by an experienced user to ensure the success of such an event.

You are very welcome if you would like to collaborate with Wikimedia Tunisia and to go through our fiscal sponsor.

Thank you!

Invitation for Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos 2021Edit

Hello there,

We are inviting you to participate in Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos 2021, a global contest scheduled to run from July through August 2021.

Participants will choose among Wikipedia pages without photo images, then add a suitable file from among the many thousands of photos in the Wikimedia Commons, especially those uploaded from thematic contests (Wiki Loves Africa, Wiki Loves Earth, Wiki Loves Folklore, etc.) over the years.

In its first year (2020), 36 Wikimedia communities in 27 countries joined the campaign. Events relating to the campaign included training organized by at least 18 Wikimedia communities in 14 countries.

The campaign resulted in the addition of media files (photos, audios and videos) to more than 90,000 Wikipedia articles in 272 languages.

Wikipedia Pages Wanting Photos (WPWP) offers an ideal task for recruiting and guiding new editors through the steps of adding content to existing pages. Besides individual participation, the WPWP campaign can be used by user groups and chapters to organize editing workshops and edit-a-thons.

The organizing team is looking for a contact person to coordinate WPWP participation at the Wikimedia user group or chapter level (geographically or thematically) or for a language WP. We’d be glad for you to reply to this message, or sign up directly at WPWP Participating Communities.

Please feel free to contact Organizing Team if you have any query.

Kind regards,
Tulsi Bhagat
Communication Manager

Affiliations Committee Call for Candidates - June 2021Edit

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

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

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

The committee consists of five to fifteen members, selected at least once every year, to serve two-year terms.

Being a part of the AffCom requires communication with volunteers all over the world, negotiating skills, cultural sensitivity, and the ability to understand legal texts. We look for a mix of different skill sets in our members.

Responsibilities
  • Availability of up to 5-8 hours per month
  • Participate in monthly one and two-hour voice/video meetings
  • Commitment to carry out assigned tasks in a given time.
  • Facilitate and support communications
  • Affiliate Support and growth
Required and Recommended Abilities, Skills, Knowledge for Affiliations Committee Members

Strong interpersonal relationship among members of the committee and also with the Wikimedia community members. Across all committee members, there are additional relevant skills as well as requirements which help to support the committee and its sustainability which include both required and relevant general skills

Required
  • Fluency in English
  • Availability of up to 5 hours per week, and the time to participate in a monthly one and two-hour voice/video meetings.
  • Willingness to use one's real name in committee activities (including contacts with current and potential affiliates) when appropriate.
  • Strong track record of effective collaboration
  • International orientation
Relevant for all members
  • Public Communications (English writing and speaking skills)
  • Skills in other languages are a major plus.
  • Understanding of the structure and work of affiliates and the Wikimedia Foundation.
  • Documentation practices
  • Interviewing experience
  • Experience with, or in, an active affiliate is a major plus.
  • Teamwork: Project and people management skills to coordinate and collaborate with different parties on a shared plan and see it through to completion.
  • Problem-Solving: Ability to evaluate various solutions, consider multiple interests and points of view, revisit unresolved issues, seek compromise and work and communicate across languages and cultures.

Given the expectations for maintaining the course in 2021 and preparing for potential 2021 transitions as part of the Movement Strategy implementation process, it is important that we are also clear about two different skill sets critical to committee support at this time. The first skillset is oriented to understanding affiliate dynamics and organizational development patterns to successfully process affiliate applications for recognition; the other is oriented to conflict prevention and intervention support for affiliates in conflict.

Relevant to Affiliate Recognitions
  • Administration & Attention to detail
  • Readiness to participate in political discussions on the role and future of affiliates, models of affiliation, and similar topics.
  • Awareness of the affiliates ecosystem and models and understanding of community building, organizational development, and group dynamics
Relevant to Conflict Prevention & Intervention
  • Communication skills for active listening, clear instruction and turn-taking.
  • Stress Management skills for maintaining patience and positivity
  • Emotional intelligence to maintain awareness of emotions of oneself and others to practice empathy, impartiality, and mutual respect.
  • Facilitation, negotiation, and mediation skills to guide diverse individuals and groups toward cooperation.
  • Ability to work within a team

Do you have relevant skills and interest to support movement affiliates?

We are looking for people who are excited by the challenge of empowering volunteers to get organized and form communities that further our mission around the world. In exchange, committee members will gain the experience of supporting their world-wide colleagues to develop their communities as well as personal development in guiding organizational development, facilitating affiliate partnerships, and professional communications.

Selection process

As a reflection of our commitment to openness, transparency, and bilateral engagement with the Wikimedia community, the 2021 member selection process will include a public review and comment period and a self-assessment survey for candidates to share their skills and experience. This self-assessment information will help the committee to identify the skill sets relevant to our affiliate support processes. We invite you to apply for membership to the committee and join us in supporting the affiliates. The data shared in the self-assessment will only be made available to the committee and the relevant staff support. The nomination, candidate Q&A, and endorsements will be posted on Meta for public review at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Affiliations_Committee/Candidates/June_2021. Here the global community is welcome to provide comments and feedback about each candidate.

Once the nomination window closes June 30, 2021, the sitting members who are not candidates for re-election in this cycle will deliberate and then vote, taking into account all inputs from the meta page, self-assessment, advisors, Wikimedia Foundation staff and board liaisons, and committee member discussion.

A final decision will be made in late-July 2021, with new members to be notified for onboarding in August.

We review applications from new groups, answer questions and provide advice about the different Wikimedia affiliation models and processes, review affiliate bylaws for compliance with requirements and best practices, and update the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees as well as advise them on issues connected to chapters, thematic organizations and Wikimedia user groups.

The committee consists of five to fifteen members, selected at least once every year, to serve two-year terms.

Responsibilities
  • Availability of up to 5-8 hours per month
  • Participate in monthly one and two-hour voice/video meetings
  • Commitment to carry out assigned tasks in a given time.

Given the expectations for maintaining the course in 2022 and preparing for potential 2022 transitions as part of the Movement Strategy implementation process, it is important that we are also clear about two different skill sets critical to committee support at this time. The first skillset is oriented to understanding affiliate dynamics and organizational development patterns to successfully process affiliate applications for recognition; the other is oriented to conflict prevention and intervention support for affiliates in conflict.

In exchange, committee members will gain the experience of supporting their world-wide colleagues to develop their communities as well as personal development in guiding organizational development, facilitating affiliate partnerships, and professional communications.

Selection process

As a reflection of our commitment to openness, transparency, and bilateral engagement with the Wikimedia community, the 2022 member selection process will include a public review and comment period and a self-assessment survey for candidates to share their skills and their experience. This self-assessment information will help the committee to identify the skill sets relevant and supportive to our affiliate support processes. We invite you to apply for membership to the committee and join us in supporting the affiliates. The data shared in the self-assessment will only be made available to the committee and the relevant staff support. The nomination, candidate Q&A, and endorsements will still take place posted on Meta for public review at January 2022 page. Here the global community is welcome to provide comments and feedback about each candidate.

Once the nomination window closes 31 January 2022, the sitting members who are not candidates for re-election in this cycle will deliberate and then vote, taking into account all inputs from the meta page, self-assessment, advisors, Wikimedia Foundation staff and board liaisons, and committee member discussion.

A final decision will be made in late-February 2022, with new members to be notified for onboarding in February.

Affiliations Committee (AffCom) Call for advisors - January 2022Edit

Translations are available.

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

The Affiliations Committee – the committee responsible for guiding volunteers in establishing Wikimedia Chapters, Thematic Organizations, and User Groups – is looking for advisors!

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

We are looking for advisors who are excited by the challenge of empowering volunteers to get organized and form communities that further our mission around the world. In exchange, committee advisors selected will gain the experience of supporting their world-wide colleagues to develop their communities as well as personal development in guiding organizational development, facilitating affiliate partnerships, and professional communications.

AffCom advisors can engage with the committee in a variety of capacities:

Consultant

Individuals with extensive movement experience can be engaged as Consultants for specific cases or initiatives by AffCom.

Trainer

Individuals with specific expertise may be engaged for short-term projects for training AffCom or Affiliates. They might also lead the Capacity Building initiatives for AffCom or affiliates.

Observer

AffCom can request specific or all advisors to act as an observer in different cases to ensure neutrality & compliance with guidelines.

AffCom Support

Development of Policies: While advisors cannot create legally binding policies for the committee, they can help create policies that provide direction and support for the committee.

Planning and Implementing Community Relations: The advisors are long-term wikimedians & also include influential community leaders who can be effective at spreading the word about initiatives and services.

Supporting Subcommittees: The advisors can support subcommittees that have assigned tasks in specific areas.

Other Tasks: Advisors can be engaged to address a specific need. Such engagements are usually short-lived and are disbanded as soon as their specific goals are met.


Key skills

We look for a healthy mix of different skill sets in our advisors, including the following key skills and experience:

  1. Strong understanding of the structure and work of Wikimedia affiliates and the Wikimedia Foundation.
  2. Readiness to participate in political discussions on the role and future of affiliates, models of affiliation, and similar topics.
  3. Availability of up to 2 hours per week, and the time to participate in a monthly two-hour voice/video meeting
  4. International orientation and ability to work and communicate with other languages and cultures.
  5. Knowledge of different legal systems and experience in community building and organizing are a plus.
  6. Fluency in English is required; skills in other languages are a major plus.
  7. Experience with or in an active Wikimedia affiliate is a major plus.
  8. Strong track record of effective collaboration (such as evidenced skills at facilitation, mediation, negotiation, and so forth) is a major plus.
  9. Willingness to use one's real name in committee activities (including contacts with current and potential affiliates) when appropriate.
Selection process

As a reflection of our commitment to openness, transparency, and bilateral engagement with the Wikimedia community, the 2022 advisors selection process will include a public review and comment period. All applications must be posted on Meta between January 01 and January 31, 2022 at Affiliations Committee/Advisors/2022, and the community will be invited to provide comments and feedback about each candidate. At the end of the nomination period, the applications will be voted on by the members of the committee, taking into account comments put forward by the committee's members, advisors, Wikimedia Foundation staff and board liaisons, and the community. A final decision will be made in February 2022, with new advisors expected to begin later that month.

How to apply

If you are interested in advising the committee, please submit your candidacy on Affiliations Committee/Advisors/2022 between January 01 to January 31, 2022. Your application must include the following information:

  1. Your full name and Wikimedia username
  2. A statement describing your relevant experience, skills, and motivation for joining the committee as an advisor.
  3. The advisor role you would like to serve
  4. Answers to the following three questions:
    1. How do you think affiliates work best together to partner on effective projects and initiatives?
    2. What do you see as the role of affiliates in the Wikimedia movement in the next three years?
    3. What do you feel you will bring as an advisor to the committee that makes you a uniquely qualified candidate?

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

Publication d'un livre sur Le mouvement WikimédiaEdit

Bonjour Wikimédia Tunisie !

Je suis en discussion avec la maison d'édition Karthala avec l'idée d'une publication du livre Le mouvement Wikimédia dans la collection petit volcan. On aborde évidemment sur les questions de licence, mais le directeur semble ok pour laisser tomber le tout droit réservé au profit de la CC.BY.SA.

Durant ces négociations, je voudrais savoir si Wikimédia Tunisie serait intéressé pour commander un certains nombres d'exemplaires de tel sorte à encourager l'éditeur à publier un livre qui est déjà disponible sur le web dans Wikilivres. Comme autre avantage pour la maison d'édition, je mets aussi en évidence le fait que cela sera probablement une démarche nouvelle que l'on peut présenter comme « le premier livre papier dont vous pouvez améliorer la prochaine édition ». Et que cette nouveauté dans le monde de l'édition pourrait être profitable pour la maison d'édition au niveau d'éventuels retours médiatiques.

J'attends votre réponse en souhaitant une belle fin d'année pour à toute l'équipe !

@ bientôt, Lionel Scheepmans Contact (Fr-N, En-3, Pt-3) 18:23, 24 December 2021 (UTC)

Movement Strategy Implementation GrantsEdit

Hello there!

The Movement Strategy and Governance team wishes you a good start of the new 2022!
As we begin this year, we look forward to seeing more collaboration, increased support and connection between communities and affiliates. We would like to use this chance to share some information on the Movement Strategy Implementation Grants that aim to support volunteers and affiliates looking to help in implementing the Movement Strategy Initiatives within their communities.
These grants support big and small projects that aim to take the current state of an initiative and push it one step forward. Apply for a grant to implement a Movement Strategy initiative with a budget up to $25,000.
We understand that ideas flow at their own pace, so Movement Strategy Implementation Grants are designed to be flexible with no set deadline. Your applications are welcome at any time. Applications received after the 15th of each month will be reviewed in the following month.
Get in touch with us if you would like to discuss your project proposal or if you need more information about the program. The Movement Strategy and Governance team is happy to host conversations regarding these grants. Conversations may help answer your questions, develop your ideas, and connect with other communities with similar interests.

Please visit this [meta page] to look at some suggested examples, and you are welcome to join the “MS – Grants Community of Practice” group on Telegram!

Best regards,

استراتيجية الحركة\مقترح منتدى لنقاشات الاستراتيجيةEdit

يدعو فريق استراتيجية الحركة والحوكمة الجميع لمراجعة مقترح بهدف العمل ضمن منتدى لاستراتيجية الحركة. الهدف هو تحسين التعاون المجتمعي من خلال منصة متعددة اللغات وسهلة الاستخدام.

المراجعة مفتوحة خلال الفترة من 24 مايو حتى 24 يوليو. هذا المنتدى الوظيفي متاح للاختبار والمناقشة. إذا كانت ملاحظات المجتمع إيجابية، سيُطلَق المنتدى في أغسطس 2022 قبل ويكيمانيا. إذا لم يكن الأمر كذلك، سنتابع التعليقات الواردة، أو تغيير مقترح المنتدى أو إغلاقه.

إذا كنت ترغب بالتجربة أولاً والقراءة لاحقاً، انضم إلى منتدى استراتيجية الحركة باستخدام اسم مستخدم ويكيميديا الخاص لك.


يتطلب تنفيذ استراتيجية الحركة (MS) تعاون المجتمعات والمشاريع واللغات. لا بد أن يكون مئات الأشخاص قادرين على التعلّم من بعضهم البعض والعمل معاً والاستمتاع بذلك. يجب أن يتمتع القادمون الجدد بمشاركتهم في استراتيجية الحركة مثلهم مثل المشاركون القدماء. يجب أن يجد المساهمون غير المنتظمين فرصًا للمشاركة. كما يجب أن يجد المساهمون المتفانون الأدوات التي يحتاجونها لإنجاز المهام.

حالياً، نحن نفتقر إلى البنية التحتية لتلبية هذه الاحتياجات. تعد منصات ميتاويكي وتليغرام جيدة للتوثيق والدردشة، لكن هذا لا يكفي. المناقشات مبعثرة. يحدث التعاون داخل مجموعات منعزلة. الأشخاص الذين لا يجيدون اللغة الإنجليزية هم في وضع غير مؤات بشكل واضح. يشعر القادمون الجدد بالضياع. هذا كله بحاجة لتغيير.

منتدى استراتيجية الحركة قائم على Discourse، وهو منصة قوية مفتوحة المصدر للمناقشات المجتمعية. يمكنك توقع توفّر جميع ميزات منتديات الويب فضلاً عن سهولة استخدام وسائل التواصل الاجتماعي. هذه الميزات ذات صلة خاصة بالمشكلات التي نريد حلها:

  • يمكن لأي شخص الانضمام باستخدام حساب ويكيميديا ​​الخاص به. لا يلزم التسجيل.
  • إمكانية إجراء المحادثات متعددة اللغات والمشاركة فيها بفضل الترجمة الآلية بأكثر من 100 لغة.
  • الترحيب بالوافدين الجدد من خلال برنامج تعليمي تفاعلي وتقديم شارات للإنجازات.
  • يمكن تعديل الإخطارات لمتابعة أو كتم الموضوعات والتصنيفات والعلامات.
  • يمكن استخدام تنسيق نصوص سهل في المحادثات وروابط موسّعة، وصور ورموز تعبيرية.
  • يمكن تلخيص المحادثات المعقّدة حسب المشاركين فيها وتقسيمها أو دمجها.
  • يمكن الإشارة إلى المشاركات بعلامة "مجهول" لغرض الإشراف. يضمن مشرفو المجتمع مراعاة تطبيق سياسية مدونة السلوك العالمية في المحادثات.
  • جميع المزايا متوفرة في نسخة الأجهزة النقالة ومتصفحات سطح المكتب.
  • تهنئة الوافدين الجدد كلما نشروا شيئاً جديداً.

هذه ليست قائمة شاملة. إذا كنت تفتقد أي خاصية، يمكنك اقتراح إرسال طلب اقتراحها والتصويت عليها. إذا كانت التغييرات سهلة التنفيذ (مثل النصوص والعمليات والإعدادات ...) فسننفذها أثناء العمل.

إليك أسئلة لبدء المحادثة. يمكن لأي شخص مشاركة آرائه في المنتدى في المواضيع ذات العلاقة أو على صفحة نقاش ميتاويكي. يمكن للجميع المشاركة بلغتهم المفضلة. يمكن لأي شخص أن يطرح المزيد من الأسئلة.

الهدف من المراجعة المجتمعية هو بناء وعي حول القرار بحلول 24 يوليو\تموز 2022.

تتم مشاركة ملخصات المناقشات وتحديثها مع استمرار المراجعة. يمكن لأي شخص المساهمة في هذه الملخصات بالتعليقات والتعديلات. سيتم صياغة تقرير الاستعراض بما في ذلك القرار علنا. Mervat (WMF) (نقاش) 21:27، 30 مايو 2022 (ت ع م) Mervat (WMF) (talk) 21:47, 30 May 2022 (UTC)

بوصلة الانتخابات هي أداة تساعد الناخبين على اختيار أفضل المرشحين الذين يتوافقون مع وجهات نظرهم ورؤاهم. سيقترح أعضاء المجتمع بيانات للمرشحين للإجابة عنها باستخدام مقياس Lickert (موافق/ محايد/ غير موافق). ستُحمّل إجابات المرشحين على هذه البيانات في أداة بوصلة الانتخابات. سيستخدم الناخبون الأداة عن طريق إدخال إجاباتهم على العبارات (موافق/ غير موافق/ محايد). ستُظهر النتائجُ المرشحينَ الأكثر توافقًا مع رؤى الناخبين ووجهات نظرهم.

فيما يلي الجدول الزمني لبوصلة الانتخابات:

8 - 20 يوليو\تموز: يقترح أعضاء المجتمع البيانات للبوصلة الانتخابية

21-22 يوليو\تموز: تراجع لجنة الانتخابات البيانات للتحقق من وضوحها ولإزالة البيانات التي لا تتعلق بالموضوع.

23 يوليو\تموز - 1 أغسطس\آب: يصوّت المتطوعون على البيانات

2-4 أغسطس\آب: تختار لجنة الانتخابات أعلى 15 بياناً

5-12 أغسطس\آب: يوائم المرشحون أنفسهم مع البيانات

15 أغسطس\آب: تفتتح بوصلة الانتخابات للناخبين لاستخدامها كمرشد ودليل لاتخاذ قرار التصويت

ستختار لجنة الانتخابات أعلى 15 بياناً في بداية شهر آب\أغسطس. ستُشرف لجنة الانتخابات على العملية، بدعم من فريق إستراتيجية الحركة والحوكمة، الذي سيتحقق من أن الأسئلة واضحة، ولا توجد تكرارات، ولا أخطاء مطبعية، وما إلى ذلك.

مع التحية،

استراتيجية الحركة والحوكمة
