Hello Brunnaiz! I saw in this edit of yours, you linked my username page in your signature. I think it's a mistake. If so, please correct it. Thanks! :-) --Haoreima (talk) 15:24, 29 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Re: TOTW candidates edit

Hello Brunnaiz! since you look new in this project, let me explain how it works:

  1. "short" articles are ok; "too short" are not ok, "stubs" are not ok
  2. WP:PROMO = not encyclopedic, not interesting, not important
  3. you candidated ast:Movimientu pola oficialidá de la llingua asturiana, so I evaluated that one. Other versions need refimprove. es.wiki could be good: I suggest you for the next time to candidate the best version (and possibly the english one)
  4. Don't candidate an article with +10 langs
  5. It's not mandatory to motivate votes (oppose or support). Anyway, if I vote oppose it means that for me it's not good / not important / not encyclopedic / too local / other

I suggest you also to not candidate too many new articles. You are not the only user, let also other users the possibility to nominate their articles. What would happen if everyone will nominate 100 articles? There will be 1.000 candidates, but only one can be choosen weekly. Holapaco77 (talk) 13:08, 17 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've been in this project for months, I really don't know what "new" means to you.
I also never nominated 100 articles; I feel like you're using a straw man argument against me. Everyone is welcome to nominate any articles they want, I never opposed that. --Brunnaiz (talk) 13:38, 17 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You made your first edit on meta.wiki on 12 August, just 5 weeks ago, so you are quite new here; I'm here since 9 years (from 2013), so I can say something about how the TOTW project works. In this moment there are 70 candidate articles (too much), and 34 article have been nominated by you. I think that, if all the TOTW users will nominate 34 article now, soon we will have 1000 candidates. So, it's just a suggestion: let also other users to nominate new articles.--Holapaco77 (talk) 16:38, 19 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There's no rule restricting the quantity of articles one can propose, though. If that's a concern you have, maybe you should suggest that such rule exist. --Brunnaiz (talk) 16:44, 19 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think Holapaco77s advices are quite good. Five weeks is really new. Perhaps you've read TOW a lot longer, but that's another thing. Anyway, I like your work, with sorting suggestions and taking away removals. All the best! Deryni (talk) 17:21, 9 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Queering Wikipedia 2023 conference edit


Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group and the organizing team of Queering Wikipedia is delivering the Queering Wikipedia 2023 Conference for LGBT+ Wikimedians and allies, as a hybrid, bilingual and trans-local event. It is online on 12, 14 and 17 May, the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia #IDAHOBIT, with offline events at around 10 locations on 5 continents in the 5-day span as QW2023 Nodes.

The online program is delivered as a series of keynotes, panels, presentations, workshops, lightning talks and creative interventions, starting on Friday noon (UTC) with the first keynote of Dr Nishant Shah entitled: I spy, with my little AI — Wikiway as a means to disrupt the ‘dirty queer’ impulses of emergent AI platforms. Second keynote is at Sunday’s closure by Esra’a Al Shafei, Wikimedia Foundation’s Board of Trustees vice chair, entitled: Digital Public Spaces for Queer Communities.

If you have been an active Wikimedian or enthusiast, supporting LGBT+ activities or if you identify as part of the larger LGBT+ community and allies in Wikimedia, please join us in advancing this thematic work. We encourage you to join online or in person with fellow Wikimedians if it is easy and safe to do so. Our working languages are English and Spanish, with possible local language support at sites of Nodes.

Registration for the online event is free and is open until Wednesday May 10th at 18:00 UTC, for safety protocol. Late event registration approval and event access denial is at the discretion of organizers.

More information, and registration details, may be found on Meta at QW2023
