Translation edit

Hi Eva! Please, can you mark your edits in Wikimedia Europe for translation? In this way, your changes will be reflected in other language editions and can be translated. Thanks! Davidpar (talk) 10:38, 19 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dear @Davidpar thank you for your message. As a Wikiverse-newbie I am always glad to receive advices and learn more about tools and good practices on Meta. I have now made a request to get translation admin rights. In the meantime, my former edits on Wikimedia Europe have been marked by my collegue @Lea Lacroix (WMDE). Eva Martin (WMDE) (talk) 15:36, 22 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Perfect, @Eva Martin (WMDE)! No problem, I saw that @Lea Lacroix (WMDE) just marked the content for translation, thanks to both of you for your understanding! Davidpar (talk) 16:45, 22 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

APP question edit

Hi there! I'm here to ask which specific part of APP prompted your question about editor retention? (As far as I remember, it isn't an explicit goal for Product and Tech this year.) Also, wanted to flag mw:Wikimedia_Research/Showcase#2023 in January was on this topic, for what is worth. TTYS, --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 16:34, 23 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi and thanks for sharing the link to the January Showcase around editor retention!
Here is the part of the APP that I was referring to: "A key challenge to programmatic growth in the region has been the difficulty of retaining African editors on Wikimedia projects, driven by both on-wiki policy barriers (e.g. Wikipedia notability policies) and technical challenges (e.g. IP blocking). This year, the Foundation is proposing to work with communities to jointly address the editor retention challenge through social and technical interventions"
You can find the original text under the section 'Regional goals' for Sub-Saharan Africa. Eva Martin (WMDE) (talk) 07:33, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Right. I believe the technical side of it is basically IP Masking. If you haven't caught up with it recently, IP_Editing:_Privacy_Enhancement_and_Abuse_Mitigation#April_2023:_The_Plan_for_IP_Masking is a good starting point (and there's some convos on the talk page). For any related questions, please feel free to reach out to User:Whatamidoing (WMF). Be well, and sending our best to our WMDE peers. --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 10:13, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you very much for pointing out the proposition around IP Masking, this is very helpful :) Eva Martin (WMDE) (talk) 13:48, 24 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bonjour @Eva Martin (WMDE),

je me permets de vous contacter car j'anime l'équipe de recherche qui enquête sur les usages de Wikipédia (vous avez peut-être vu passer la bannière sur le Wikipédia en anglais, ou, actuellement, en français). Cette semaine nous ouvrons l'enquête en allemand, et j'ai besoin que quelqu'un valide la bannière, qui a déjà été relue par @Stefan_Kühn. La bannière est ici et le questionnaire est ici.

Merci d'avance! Jullienn (talk) 12:50, 26 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
