Bureaucrat grantsEdit

Dear Base, the Ligurian language is actually the Genoese language and all its local varieties (including the Principality of Monaco). There was a time when Genoa was the power No. 1 in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea and also had territorial possessions in the Crimean peninsula. So, there is much that actually binds us as Ukraine is trying to get closer to "Europe". I understand you are Ukrainian, so I do not need to explain to you what it means to try to get some independence from a national Wiki. You made very good points, undoubtedly, but please allow me to say that organizing elections is a very tiring process (I think it was my fifth election so far) as our community is very much involved at any possible level to receive official recognition for Genoese from the State and to help our language survive. Some people did not vote as they simply had no time (one is a cousin of mine!). Some (like Carlo Poggi, who is very active, do not even have a user page, only a discussion page, and he works a lot. Some people are "in the shadow", and a past admin (Giromin Cangiaxo) constantly works at translatewiki for our interface. So please show how we could still take advantage from this election. Can we freeze it and reopen it at a later date to have more people vote for it? Also, there are two of us who would like to become admin (S4b1nuz E.656 and Giodiassi5) and they actually proposed me to become bureaucrat first in order to speed up their nomination. We need more admin to fight vandalism! Can you please help us and make suggestions? Again, people in our language community are often very much involved on other fronts (like translating Facebook into Genoese), and sometimes they are too old to have a user page: our best translator is Mr. Enrico Carlini, and you can find his name on many spots here and on Wikisource (the English one that hosts our section at https://wikisource.org/wiki/Main_Page/Ligure. Please note that it is not the Italian Wikisource hosting us). Mr. Carlini, 80 years old, continuously writes articles for us but is unable to work in the internet on a Wiki, so he works offline and we post his pages for him. Consequenlty, one of our best contributors cannot vote for me/us. Yes, it is indeed very frustrating to receive a denial under such circumstances. Please think about giving us a second chance and helping us have two more sysop and a bureaucrat. Sincerely yours, --Luensu1959 (talk) 07:29, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

Luensu1959, I am happy to hear all of this, both the part about some ties and similarities with Ukraine and how much work is being done by some people, it is fascinating actually. Now, to address some of the points you make other points. Please do have S4b1nuz E.656 and Giodiassi5 run for adminship. What is needed is just to have a one week long vote and then to create a request on SRP. It is okay if only 3 or so people vote in the nominations. While you do need to make sure that the votes are announced well at appropriate on wiki venues, you do not need to go extreme and try to get each and every community member to vote. It is always a bother to organise an election, but it seems to me, from what you have said, that it is the latter part which actually takes the most effort, and it is not really required. Depending on the situation, we might first assign them temporary admin permissions, but there is nothing preventing them from becoming an admin in general. The procedure would be the same if you were a bureaucrat, so there is no real way you could actually "speed up" their nominations. Other stewards and I would be happy to grant the admin flags as fast as we can given the conditions are met. I realise that it might seem like you are dependent on Meta-Wiki, but please do not see it like this, we are here to help while your community is still small. Once you do have a local bureaucrat it would be solely on the bureaucrat and not on the stewards to manage rights (except for denominations), and from experience I know that it sometimes can actually be a bottleneck (e.g. you would go on vacation for a couple of weeks). Please do not see my denial as some kind of discouragement and please note that it only goes for the bureaucrat flag and only for now. It might be that you do manage to make some outreach partnerships and suddenly your community is much bigger in a year. (Speaking of which, more as a member of a chapter rather than a steward, I think you should consider creating a usergroup and trying to run some projects with a grant from Wikimedia foundation). It might be that it will take a little bit longer too, but still, there is no verdict for good and once you have more people active you can take more responsibilities on your own shoulders. Once again, there is no problem with you having more admins. If you still have questions, need some help or require some suggestions feel free to ask. Thank you again for all the work you are doing! --Base (talk) 09:01, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Dear Ukrainian, thanks for your long and detailed explanation, the encouraging words and the appreciation. You definitely understood our situation "behind the scenes". Thanks for suggesting creating a usergroup. Actually, having an association in Genoa that is active for the conservation and spread of Genoese (called "A Compagna"), most of us are already in a whatsapp and email group for better coordination, but I will consider your interesting suggestion anyway. Like I said, S4b1nuz E.656 and Giodiassi5 have expressed their wish to run for adminship. My question is: may we hold two elections for them simultaneously on the same page? That would definitely help a lot. All the best, --Luensu1959 (talk) 10:22, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Luensu1959, yes! You can have as many nominations running at the same time as you need. As long as it is still separate nominations and it is clear who is voting for whom. --Base (talk) 14:03, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
Hello Base, good evening. I saw the discussion between you and Luensu1959. I'm asking if i become a new administrator in lij.wikipedia, it is possible to be also Interface Administrator at the same time? Does it need a own election for this function? --S4b1nuz E.656 (talk) 19:26, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
S4b1nuz E.656, good evening. Yes, it is absolutely possible to be both at the same time. It is better to have a separate election for this function, but you can run the election at the same time as your admin election. The only thing about interface administrator which is different is that you will have to enable 2FA. This is required by WMF now for security reasons. --Base (talk) 01:13, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
Hi Base, following your suggestions after the failed election to a bureaucrat for Wiki Ligure we have now completed two elections simultaneously and posted them on the stewards page. Please have a look and confirm. All the best --S4b1nuz E.656 (talk) 07:21, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
Hello Base, we forgot to add the word "permanent" as we need permanent admin rights for both S4b1nuz E.656 and Giodiassi5. Organizing elections is always an effort that requires lots of energy, and we need energies for more important things! I'm sure you agree on that! All the best from Genoa and Liguria, --Luensu1959 (talk) 19:30, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

Site notice useEdit

Hi Base! I am User:Sturm from Brazil and I would like to ask you take a look and implement my group's recent ask for use in CentralNotice/Calendar, the "CentralNotice/Request/Wikiconcurso Arquivo Nacional". We have an already running site notice use regarding "CentralNotice/Request/Wikiconcurso Museu Paulista", but now this one (older) can be stopped and finished. Please, just let me know if everything is ok and, if that's true, pls, turn on the site notice with our newer wikicontest banner. Regards, Sturm (talk) 14:48, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

This page in a nutshellEdit

Is there anyhow possible to translate "This page in a nutshell" part too here. I feel it is coming from a template, and there is no way to do other than working on language switch on the template. However if you know any other way, please let me know -- Tito Dutta (talk) 20:26, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

Tito Dutta, nope, the template has to be converted to Translate in order to be translatable the same way as the open letter page. As it is now, language switch is the only way to translate it. --Base (talk) 20:31, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

Sunday August 23: Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network meetingEdit

Strategic flock of Wikimedians heading in a new direction.

The Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network (SWAN) is a proposed 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.

The idea is to follow up on the All-Affiliates Brand Meeting and other strategic and outreach topics of mutual concern to all affiliates, and you are all invited to RSVP here.--Pharos (talk) 15:36, 21 August 2020 (UTC)

I am requesting if you could grant me a six month trial period since I may also be inactive some time in December (due to a family vacation) and come back on January.

Sunday October 25 Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network meetingEdit

Friendship is a movement value.

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 September and August SWAN meetings, and June's All-Affiliates Brand Meeting, as well as strategic and outreach topics of mutual concern to all affiliates including the recent proposed changes to the Wikimedia Foundation Bylaws, this month we are meeting on Sunday October 25, and you are all invited to RSVP here.--Pharos (talk) 16:50, 22 October 2020 (UTC)
