Wikivoyage as thematic organizationEdit

Hi Stefan, I was wondering if there still any development going on for Wikivoyage to becoming affiliated with Wikimedia? --Saqib (talk) 15:18, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi Saqib. Yes. I hope you got my email last month. The one I sent to all association members. There were some news inside. I can resend it to you, if necessary. I met some guys of the committee. The by-laws review is in process. We've just been asked to answer some questions and we did it ([[Talk:Wikivoyage Association/By-laws here...]). So everything is ongoing. Would be nice to have more members. I am going to writre a message on all the lounges next week, when I write more about our new map features and the location database, and ask people to support the association. Only that way we can support the whole project and focus our energy.
I am quite busy with my real job. Besides there is a lot of communication around Wikimedia to follow, there is a presentation for Hong Kong to be prepared and I am going to buy a flat. So sometimes in can be quiet around me. A clone of mine would be helpful sometimes.... :) Will you be in Hong Kong?
If you have any ideas (or things that happened on en: or other languages that I missed) ... just write to me here or via email.... Thanks for the support. I am going to keep you all up-to-date... Many greetings from Germany. -- DerFussi 18:00, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Glad to hear everything is in process Stefan. Why don't you directly ask active Wikivoyage contributors to join the association? We've got many new contributors and I believe few will show interest in the association. And yes, I'll be in Honk Kong along with my wife but sorry to tell you I don't have any idea what to present in the presentation. By the way, good luck with buying apartment. :) Greetings from Pakistan. --Saqib (talk) 20:00, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
I think I asked on en: travelers Pub already. And I was in contact with some frequent contributors via email. When I spread the Message about the location database and the new statistics I am going to ask the contributors again... Tanks and many greetings to Pakistan. DerFussi 20:07, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Stefan, would that not be good idea if the association website shall be rebuilt but without using MediaWiki? --Saqib (talk) 20:26, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Hmm. We could do it. I can create wbesite. Its kind of side business of mine. But we need a place for our meetings and votings/resolutions. A wiki is quite usefull for votings because you can not remove old edits and its editable for members only. And everybody can maintain it without any knowledge of using a CMS or something like that. But there is one thing we can do.... Running a "normal" HTML website on the association's domain and using the wiki for the internal stuff. This one sounds nice. Any idea about content/design? Maybe we can colect some ideas on the assoc wiki. I am going to spread the idea out to the members? What do you think? -- DerFussi 17:59, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
Stefan, we can use WordPress. They've some nice themes being used by many organisations and plenty of plugins which can be used during the election periods. As far online meetings are concerned, I would say IRC is the right choice. Let me know what do you think and I'll suggest you few WordPress themes. --Saqib (talk) 19:03, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Wikimedia LGBT / User GroupEdit

Please see this discussion regarding User Group status. Thank you! --Another Believer (talk) 15:41, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. On the way back home from Hong Kong. Going to check it and participte when I am home. -- DerFussi 08:02, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Help test better mass message deliveryEdit

Hi. You're being contacted as you've previously used global message delivery (or its English Wikipedia counterpart). It doesn't feel so great to be spammed, does it? ;-)

For the past few months, Legoktm has built a replacement to the current message delivery system called MassMessage. MassMessage uses a proper user interface form (no more editing a /Spam subpage), works faster (it can complete a large delivery in minutes), and no longer requires being on an access list (any local administrator can use it). In addition, many tiny annoyances with the old system have been addressed. It's a real improvement! :-)

You can test out MassMessage here: testwiki:Special:MassMessage. The biggest difference you'll likely notice is that any input list must use a new {{#target:}} parser function. For example, {{#target:User talk:Jimbo Wales}} or {{#target:User talk:Jimbo Wales|test2.wikipedia.org}}. For detailed instructions, check out mw:Help:Extension:MassMessage.

If you find any bugs, have suggestions for additional features, or have any other feedback, drop a note at m:Talk:MassMessage. Thanks for spamming! --MZMcBride (talk) 05:24, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Beginning of MassMessage, end of EdwardsBotEdit

Hi. You're being contacted as you're listed as an EdwardsBot user.

MassMessage has been deployed to all Wikimedia wikis. For help using the new tool, please check out its help page or drop a note on Meta-Wiki.

With over 400,000 edits to Wikimedia wikis, EdwardsBot has served us well; however EdwardsBot will no longer perform local or global message delivery after December 31, 2013.

A huge thanks to Legoktm, Reedy, Aaron Schulz and everyone else who helped to get MassMessage deployed. --MZMcBride (talk) 02:36, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

Wikimedia genealogy projectEdit

Superprotect letter updateEdit

Hi DerFussi,

Along with more hundreds of others, you recently signed Letter to Wikimedia Foundation: Superprotect and Media Viewer, which I wrote.

Today, we have 562 signatures here on Meta, and another 61 on change.org, for a total of 623 signatures. Volunteers have fully translated it into 16 languages, and begun other translations. This far exceeds my most optimistic hopes about how many might sign the letter -- I would have been pleased to gain 200 siguatures -- but new signatures continue to come.

I believe this is a significant moment for Wikimedia and Wikipedia. Very rarely have I seen large numbers of people from multiple language and project communities speak with a unified voice. As I understand it, we are unified in a desire for the Wikimedia Foundation to respect -- in actions, in addition to words -- the will of the community who has built the Wikimedia projects for the benefit of all humanity. I strongly believe it is possible to innovate and improve our software tools, together with the Wikimedia Foundation. But substantial changes are necessary in order for us to work together smoothly and productively. I believe this letter identifies important actions that will strongly support those changes.

Have you been discussing these issues in your local community? If so, I think we would all appreciate an update (on the letter's talk page) about how those discussions have gone, and what people are saying. If not, please be bold and start a discussoin on your Village Pump, or in any other venue your project uses -- and then leave a summary of what kind of response you get on the letter's talk page.

Finally, what do you think is the right time, and the right way, to deliver this letter? We could set a date, or establish a threshold of signatures. I have some ideas, but am open to suggestions.

Thank you for your engagement on this issue, and please stay in touch. -Pete F (talk) 18:30, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Mailing list for global renamersEdit

Dear global renamer,

We have created a mailing list for us to allow easy communication. Please subscribe here and send me or Trijnstel an email to confirm it is you requesting it. Additionally, you might be interested to know of the existance of the #wikimedia-renameconnect IRC channel where you are welcome to join. Should you have any questions, feel free to use my talk page.

Cordially, Savhñ 15:07, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Per your GS nomEdit

I hope that you can read between the lines of my comment on your nomination for GS rights. I think that an RFC would be beneficial, especially with regard to the Wikivoyage migration as a community to WMF.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:02, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I agree. Actually I dont need a global permission. I even have no time for that. But a helping hand for some mediawiki settings/blocks/speam deletings on the small language versions seems to be useful. -- DerFussi 12:46, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Wiki Loves PrideEdit

Help on CommonsEdit

Guten Morgen. Can you help us with some "copyright expertise" for a couple of german files at Commons? Please see here (comment by Strainu on 15.07.2016, 21:15 (UTC)). Vielendank. --Wintereu 05:08, 16 July 2016 (UTC)

Guten Morgen. I have to admit. I am not familiar with German copyright concerning this kind of images. I can read about it but it will take some time because my wiki time is very limited. -- DerFussi 07:56, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

We're on Twitter!Edit

WikiLGBT is on Twitter!
