Wiki Loves AfricaEdit

Hello

Une petite note rapide pour te signaler que la WMF avait rejeté notre première proposition de demande de financement pour le concours photographique Wiki Loves Africa. Donc nous avons remanié le tout et fait une nouvelle demande allégée. La Côte d'Ivoire fait bien sûr partie des 7/8 pays identifiés. A plus. Anthere (talk) 15:30, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Nous nous apprêtons à lancer WLA mercredi. J'ai laissé quelques notes ici. Merci Anthere (talk)

Updates to ReportsEdit

Thank you for your recent update to the Reports page. While I have undone your change to your user group expiry date and notation of a tick rather than a cross for being up-to-date, that should only be temporary until I am able to give the required time for the review process and AffCom renewal of your group based on that review. Upon previewing your report I see no problems with it, however we do need to go through the official process before making updates to your user group status and eligibility. Please look forward to another message early next week once the process may be completed. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you JAnstee (WMF) (talk) 18:13, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

Hello JAnstee (WMF), thank you for letting me know and I apologize for the inconvenience. Happy new year! --African Hope (talk) 17:10, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
No inconvenience at all. Your user group renewal request have cleared AffCom review and I have made the updates to the Reports and Eligibility pages. Thank you JAnstee (WMF) (talk) 19:22, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
I am glad to hear that. Our local team will move on now to filling the Registration form. Thank you for your feedback JAnstee (WMF) --African Hope (talk) 11:13, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Hello! In the past few months, the Wikipedia Library User Group has been undergoing some major planning and developments. We just finished our very first open call with the user group members, which was a great success (see the meeting minutes). If you joined us during the meeting, we’d like to thank you for your interest. If not, not to worry, we have lots of things planned for the user group in which you can participate.

This message is to inform you that based on the input received from the user group members and the founding members, it was agreed that the Wikipedia Library User Group’s name be reconsidered by a voting process. As a valued member of the user group, we’d like to invite you to vote on the list of potential names. You can vote by following this link. The poll will run for a timeframe of two weeks.

[Wikipedia & Education User Group] Updates: November 2018Edit

Greetings,

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.

Kind regards
On behalf of Wikipedia and Education UG, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 11:44, 10 November 2018 (UTC)
