Bonjour Afek et User:Zeinebtakouti
Enfin de retour de Wikimania et à nouveau active !
Je viens de regarder votre budget Wiki Loves Africa 2017/Tunisia. Personnellement, je n'ai aucun problème avec ce budget qui est très modéré. A mon avis, si vous voulez également créer quelques goodies (peut-être des badges pour agrafer à vos vêtements ? Ou bien des stickers ? Ou bien des magnets ? c:File:WikiAfrica projects at Wikimania 2017.jpg.
Avez-vous bien compris que cette année la Tunisie doit passer par une Rapid Grant pour WLA ? Voilà un exemple de début d'application pour le Ghana. Le Cameroun est aussi en train d'y travailler mais ce n'est pas encore posté. Si vous voulez, je peux vous donner un coup de main, mais il me semble que la Tunisie a déjà fait pas mal de demandes de financement donc cela devrait être facile pour vous. Je me permet d'insister sur l'urgence à faire la demande de Rapid Grant car sur la page, il est actuellement mentionné que les Rapid Grants sont traitées en un mois plutôt que 15 jours.
Aussi, j'ai noté sur Wikimedia Tunisie/Projects 2017 que la date mentionnée était Décembre-Janvier. Mais cette année, nous sommes revenues sur un planning Octobre-Novembre !
Wikimedia diversity - What happened at the conference and how to follow upEdit
We are messaging you now because you signed up as an ambassador for Wikimedia Diversity Conference 2017. We are sharing this message far and wide, so apologies in advance if you are receiving this message twice.
During the conference, we dedicated a full afternoon to discussing the strategic direction and what it means for the work on diversity in the Wikimedia movement. Compiling the outcomes of those conversations, we summarized the key problems and solutions identified, and we created a summary statement. But the conversation is far from over! We still need to hear from diversity ambassadors: (1) what does working for diversity mean at your local context?; (2) what are the needs that should be addressed; (3) what resources are relevant for these identified needs?
We know that diversity gains meaning in context, and this is why we need to hear every voice. Please take a few minutes to go over to the diversity conversation page and add your comments.
If you’d like to stay in touch, and share your experience working for diversity with others, add your profile on our group here.
Join us on The AfroCine ProjectEdit
This is to introduce you to a new Wikimedia project called The AfroCine Project.

[Wikipedia & Education User Group] Updates: November 2018Edit
Integrating Wikimedia with education is a powerful strategy for the outreach of Wikimedia projects. Realising this concept, a group of leaders promoted this and formed the Wikipedia Education Collaborative. After some time, this evolved to become a user group, officially recognised by the Affiliations Committee in June 2018. The user group had its first board elections earlier in September. In the process to formalise activities and give a shape the user group for long-term sustainability, we are now revamping our processes. Thanks for supporting us during incubation stages, we are now inviting you to formally join the user group by following the instructions on the members' page. Being a member will allow you to be a part of this wonderful collaboration and also do interesting stuff.
I noticed that you have signed up as a Wikimedia Diversity Ambassador, after the Diversity Conference held in Stockholm 2017. In August this year, Wikimania will take place in Stockholm, and our goal is to use Ambassadors to reach out to local communities, to spread the news about the conference and the outcomes afterwards. The conference theme (still to be announced) will connect closely to diversity. If you would like to be involved as a Wikimania ambassador, please sign up at the Ambassador page at the Wikimania wiki!
A first thing to do, if you would like to help out, would be to translate the scholarship page at the Wikimania wiki into the language(s) you speak!
AfroCine: Join the Months of African Cinema this October!Edit
After a successful first iteration of the Months of African Cinema last year, we are happy to announce that it will be happening again this year, starting from October 1! In the 2018 edition of the contest, about 600 Wikipedia articles were created in at least 8 languages. There were also contributions to Wikidata and Wikimedia commons, which brought the total number of wikimedia pages created during the contest to over 1,000. About 9 in-person events were also organised for the edit-a-thon in different parts of the world.
The contest is organized by a Wikimedia project called The AfroCine Project, which is dedicated to improving the coverage of the history, works, people, places, and events, that are associated with the cinema, theatre and arts of Africa, African countries, the Caribbean, and the diaspora.
If you would love to join this exciting event, please list your username as a participant on the English Wikipedia contest page. If you would love to lead this contest for your country or community, please list your name in the coordinators' page here. The rapid grants team would be accepting proposals throughout October and November, in case you'd need funds to run local edit-a-thons or some other activities related to this event. Upon listing your name on the coordinators' page, you'd be contacted to talk about the resources you'd need to run the event in your community. You can also contact me directly for any clarifications.
Finally, We also need volunteers to handle some aspects of the AfroCine project. These aspects include:
- Community Liaison: This role essentially involves closely engaging with local communities to support their activities within the scope of Afrocine.
- Communications: This involves the communications aspects of the project. Sharing relevant information on mailing lists and social media would be the responsibility of this person.
- MAC Jury: This role involves joining the jury of Months of African Cinema contest. We need as many people as we can get 🙂.
- Tools: Going forward, we would need relevant tools to better track the metrics and also analyse the general impact of these events. We are calling for Wikimedia volunteers who can navigate wikimedia tools that can be useful for the project.
If you would love to help with any of these roles, or some other roles that have not been mentioned, please contact me directly or on: samoye_ hotmail.com
If you have further questions, complaints, suggestions, etc., please reach out to me personally or right here or the project talkpages.

[Interview Request] Board of Trustees Onboarding ProjectEdit
I emailed you using your email on your talk page a little bit. Incase you missed it, I thought I would post the message on your talk page. Please email me if you are available after this message :)
I’m Cassie Casares, a program support associate for the Wikimedia Foundation’s Community Development. I work with Maggie Dennis, the Vice President of Community Resilience & Sustainability. Our department is responsible for many critical operations in the movement, and that includes supporting the Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation in onboarding into their roles.
We are excited to welcome Victoria Doronina, Lorenzo Losa and Rosie Stephenson-Goodknight to the Board. As we work to help our new trustees better understand the different departments and functions of the Wikimedia Foundation, we also believe it is important to introduce them to different corners and insights of the movement with which they may not have much personal experience. We recognize that these outstanding individuals have extensive experience in the movement but believe it is integral that trustees have a sense of “us” that is global and diverse like our communities. We also hope to use the materials we assemble to help onboard future Board members, including those who join from outside of our movement.
To that end, we are developing a podcast that will be compiled of interviews with different volunteers from across the movement, and we would like to invite you to participate. Christel Steigenberger recommended you as a volunteer with community experience that the Board of Trustees will find incredibly valuable.
The interviews will be conducted by Maggie or by my manager, Simona Ramkisson. We would aim to schedule a 60 minute meeting with you that is convenient to your timezone. These interviews will be recorded, with excerpts drawn from multiple interviews to help create a full picture of a range of experiences. In order that people may feel confident to speak frankly, they will be considered a confidential resource, and will not be shared publicly. They will only be provided to the Board of Trustees (now or future) or to onboarding senior Foundation staff, who would also benefit.
We are on a narrow schedule to interview volunteers, so if we can schedule you before end of October it will greatly help us stay within our timeline!
We are happy to answer any questions and would also be delighted to set up a time to talk, if you are able to help us with this request.
