Election committee question edit

It would be appreciated if you could take a look at the section of Danny's questions, entitled whistleblower policy. It contains a few negative statements which are not, in fact, questions. The first is a complaint from User:WiseWoman in which the entire content is a rant about women's rights and equality, not a bit about danny's candidacy. The second is a complaint from GerardM demanding the withdrawal of Danny's candidacy, which does not contain a single question or a single inquistitive statement. I have struck the latter, but was reverted and told "I do not have the right" so I am bringing it up here. I believe that having the committee maintain the integrity of the candidate's question sections is critical to ensuring a fair election:While candidates may sling mud at each other, it is entirely unfair for people qualified to give endorsements (i.e. excluding the board) to sling mud at them on their article. The segments in question should be moved to Danny's talk page. Also, I believe some sort of statement at the top of each candidate's question page should be made stating "This page is for actual questions to the candidates, not commentary on their platform"

Copying to the other members of the committee. Thank you for your attention and time.Swatjester 15:03, 19 June 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Redirect for oral citations edit

Hello Benjamin Mako. Yesterday, you created the redirect "Oral citations", which redirected to "Oral citations". It was therefore nominated for speedy deletion, but I let it redirect to "Research:Oral Citations" instead. I hope that's okay. Kind regards, Mathonius 12:51, 26 August 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry. That's definitely what I meant to do. Thanks for cleaning up after me! —mako 22:02, 28 August 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

RfC on implementing Flow in the Research namespace edit

Did you ever attend Wikimania with your money? Talk to us! edit

TL;DR: Fill a short Wikimania survey, it takes 5 min.

Hi, I'm writing you because you are listed in Wikimania/Frequent attendees. As you probably know by now, Wikimania 2016 Esino Lario wants to achieve a Wikimania format which allows people to "get things done" and leave the conference fully satisfied with the result of their investment of time and other resources (see pillars 2 and 4: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimania_2016_bids/Esino_Lario/Pillars ). For this purpose, we consider all audiences (see https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimania_2016_bids/Esino_Lario/Program#Target ).

Participants other than scholarship recipients and reimbursed representatives are one group we heard very little from, but we think they are important because: 1) they have financial resources and help make the Wikimania budget sustainable; 2) they have motivation to share and ideas on what makes Wikimania valuable.

We set up a form mainly to collect names of some such people and talk with them later: if you provide your contact, we may write you on this topic. We may release aggregate data from the resposes; data will be handled by us and the Wikimania 2016 fiscal sponsor "Ecomuseo delle Grigne" (under EU law). Please fill the whole form, it's short!

Feel free to forward this invite to anyone.

The event will take place on Tuesday, October 10, at 9:00 am PST (1600 UTC), and the presentation will be in English. You can watch the livestream here, and ask question via IRC on #wikimedia-office.

We hope to have you join us online! -- María Cruz 23:29, 2 October 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Looking for link to the "One path or many?" research github edit

Hi Benjamin! As mentioned, I'm looking for details on the specific page-names of the policy pages that were shown in the figure.1 diagram within the wikimania session. I found the wikiworkshop page/pdf but couldn't quickly track down the github you mentioned. Thanks! Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 02:45, 18 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Quiddity (WMF): Apologies for the slow response!!! I guess I'm still recovering from Wikimania! The project is very much in progress but we're working openly and you can find things the repository here: https://github.com/makoshark/wiki_policy_dev_ecosystem
Thanks for your interests and your feedback at Wikimania! I'd love to hear what you do with this! —mako 19:59, 12 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for the followup, and no worries on the delay!
I was particularly interested in the presentation, for the context of the new Wikifunctions wiki whose community / development-team I'm working with. I thought the ordered listing of policies mentioned within that figure.1 diagram might help guide the community on which pages to prioritize creating for that wiki.
Tangentially from that, and more informally/personal-curiosity, I was also wondering if the listing might be helpfully added into the related general documentation pages, such as Manual for small and new Wikipedias and Small wiki toolkits/Starter kit.
If I understand correctly, the info that I was looking for is within https://github.com/makoshark/wiki_policy_dev_ecosystem/blob/main/data/policy_page_sitelinks-sparql.csv (I.e. that's the info underlying figure.1). I can imagine that listing might potentially be helpful for both use-cases I mentioned! I will consider sharing it with the Wikifunctions community soon. However, I won't link it from the other 2 pages, as you mentioned it's still in-progress, but perhaps you might consider linking it from those once complete?
Lastly and very hesitantly, as a potential additional idea for your research efforts (more work! sorry!), I wonder how the listing would change if it was expanded to all Wikimedia wikis (not just Wikipedias)? That might also make it even more useful for those 2 documentation pages. But I just offer it as a casual musing!
Thanks again for all you do to bring insights to/from the wikiverse! Best wishes, Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 22:00, 12 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
