CRC case reportEdit

The May report have not been published in Talk:Trust_and_Safety/Case_Review_Committee.

By the way, in fr:Discussion_utilisateur:Melcch it says "This decision is not subject to appeal", so please check whether there are internal messages that is not updated upon formation of CRC. (It is possible that this case is not reviewable due to legal concerns.)--GZWDer (talk) 16:41, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

@GZWDer: Apologies for the delay on the May report. It is now up. I appreciate your continued interest in this committee.
Regarding the note at fr:Discussion_utilisateur:Melcch, the CRC has worked with Trust & Safety to review the messages they send to users. Part of the review was to make sure the messages mention how to appeal, when an appeal is possible. This work was done most recently between January and February 2021. The review of T&S messaging is referred to in broad terms (though not explicitly) in the last bullet point in the February report: Through its case reviews, the CRC has been engaging with Foundation Trust & Safety to provide feedback on its processes. I hope that helps. BChoo (WMF) (talk) 22:00, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

Unaswered pingEdit

Hi Brian. I left a question about a week ago for you here. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 23:08, 9 December 2021 (UTC)

VRT + LegalEdit

I just saw about wikiconference:Submissions:2021/VRT & WMF Legal: Workflow Discussion, and I'm so sad that I missed it. Hopefully it was a good and productive roundtable. Josve05a (talk) 23:21, 7 January 2022 (UTC)

@Josve05a: Yes, I believe it was productive for all involved! I'm planning on holding at least two more of these conversations this year. I will make sure to inform VRT when I figure out dates, and I can tag you on-wiki as well if that would help. Cheers, BChoo (WMF) (talk) 23:37, 13 January 2022 (UTC)
That would be swell, thank you! I'll also be more on the lookout for emails to the mailing lists. Josve05a (talk) 23:41, 13 January 2022 (UTC)

2nd call for CRCEdit

May I ask when or if T&S made notices on local communities about call for interim CRC members? Could we postpone the date again, while it might over wrap with UCoC EG ratification vote between 7 and 21 March? I am afraid you have translations into less than ten languages,an off balance ratio IMHO.

You noted the due date was extended a week, but I was not aware the 2nd call was issued. I feel obliged to translate the page (and did once before), but forgot to watch the page so that lost the chance to relay your notice to ja community. My drive to translate UCoC related pages is to counteract/answer to those doubts among ja community claiming if WMF is seriously reaching out to ppl and _call_ to participate, or the call itself is only for evidence master. That is non-sense, but I can't debate back since I don't recall when the call was posted at least on ja Wikipedia. Pinging @YShibata (WMF). Cheers, --Omotecho (talk) 18:02, 4 March 2022 (UTC)

Hey Omotecho, thanks for the note. I want to clarify that the call for applicants for the interim CRC is my responsibility, not T&S's. I am happy to extend the call one more time. I agree, if I were to do this again, I would want to ask for translations into more languages before moving forward with it. I did not make notices on local communities and agree this would be ideal. I need to make sure to allocate the large amount of time and resources to reach out broadly and I did not do that sufficiently here. I am not sure if I can delay this particular call for applicants to find enough translations in time, but I will make sure to do this going forward. BChoo (WMF) (talk) 01:19, 5 March 2022 (UTC)
@BChoo (WMF), great you shared me your own consideration, and please be assured I am not pushing any corner to make it round, or smooth out any future path, just wished to see if I overlooked a very important Village Pump or banner notice. We at Far East are already living 5th of March, so I don't know if I tell the community about the page I have translated: Why I am translating around the clock for UCoC and Enforcement pages is that my peers have fumed that we have been locked up in the sound-proof living room, or in ja 聾桟敷に置かれた. Then whether we are enthusiastic to nominate s/body from our community to CRC or not, news should be circulated IMHO.
FYI, ja community, we, are too proud that at least for Wikipedia, we are number four on the activeness ranking per our share on global language population among wikis. Or our local CoC is very tight knit, so that global CoC and its enforcement sounds being overruled, or told we are not doing good. And sadly, that is closely bound with the language phobia/fear to make mistake speaking up in en, a language gap we fail to jump over. Our compulsory language education from 8th yrs to 22 yrs failed too badly. Omotecho (talk) 05:23, 5 March 2022 (UTC)
@BChoo (WMF), hello, FYI, I have posted on jawiki at w:ja:Wikipedia:お知らせ and informed that CRC is calling for application. The CRC Charter is not fully translated, and I guess it be better that way for screening applicants. Cheers, -- Omotecho (talk) 13:28, 6 March 2022 (UTC)

ToC on CRC Monthly Reports (translation)Edit

Hi, @BChoo (WMF), how are you doing? Hope you are enjoying your life.

Now, I discovered Monthly reports for Case Review Committee is very good resource to grasp how WMF is moving forward for fairness.

Then, I recalled seeing some lengthy page(s) offer only the TableofContents for translation. That's a wise choice IMHO so that translator resource can be maximized to accept more topics with less investment. I remember seeing that kind of multilingual ToC maybe at Growth team or Education team. It's an advantage that cases would need careful translation, so that offering ToC only, in my humble idea, would be a cautious move to keep the door open to readers, but not offer half-translated pages which would not be a reference/news to anybody.

How does it sound? Tech-wise, I am sorry but no hint I have collected. Maybe the multilingual ToC connects each section title back to /en page? If it would have you more luggage on your shoulders, I would feel bad...

FYI, for wider translation circle, I would like @Ciell offer if they have any insights on this part of topics, please. Fully aware their hands (and feet as well!) are stretched out to great deal of works to target, so if too much, let's keep it an open issue, as I myself am fully tied up with other pages to translate. Cheers, --Omotecho (talk) 02:17, 26 July 2022 (UTC)

Hi @Omotecho,
I personally am in favor of focusing on the translations of more 'static' pages: pages that do not change text every month, or year, so that the translation efforts of the volunteers last as long as possible. While the case review page of the CRC might be of interest for our in-crowd, these are merely numbers without context - and I am not sure there is a lot of valuable information on that page, other than the committee reporting on the number of cases (accountability).
Talking about my hand and feet ;-), as a CN admin I would appreciate more Japanese translation of pages like the CentralNotice/FAQ. We receive requests from ESEAP, like Taiwanese and Korean, community members on a regular basis, but I think I did not have a chance to do a Central Notice banner in Japanese yet. :-)) Ciell (talk) 17:26, 28 July 2022 (UTC)
@Ciell, thank you always to watch over the sphere of translation, and I understand why more static pages are very energy effective. You are right, if somebody wishes to grasp the big picture behind this page, then there are more initiative related pages closer to your life as wiki editor. @BChoo (WMF), so now this topic could close. I appreciate the hard work you both offer to wikis. Cheers, Omotecho (talk) 20:03, 28 July 2022 (UTC)
