FP prizeEdit

Thanks for flagging the proposed grant up on en.wp. Would you be interested in helping with the panel? I need at least one name in the grant to be a co-proposer. Thanks -- (talk) 10:32, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

What would I need to do as part of the panel? I'm not sure I'll have time, as I was planning to move forward with my Inspire Campaign proposal after that campaign ends tomorrow. Funcrunch (talk) 14:29, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
I envisage this being a very low commitment. I suspect we might get literally a handful of suitable pictures in a month eligible for the prize, and we would look at those by email to assess if they were appropriately LGBT+ themed (we are not ranking or assessing quality). I'd be happy to be the key contact that sends an email around with the links, maybe just once or twice a month, with looking and emailing back only really being a commitment to ten minutes of time. Remember that it's first past the post, so if the prizes go early then there's no more to review. I also don't see a problem with people on the panel changing as commitments come and go, so long as we have at least two people doing the assessing. -- (talk) 15:00, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
Sure, I can help then. As long as there's no conflict of interest, as many of the photos I submit to Commons nowadays are LGBT-themed. Funcrunch (talk) 15:06, 29 June 2016 (UTC)

It has been approved! I'm just penning a short reply to the WMF on the grants page. I am travelling next week (no internet), though drop me an email if you would like to discuss any improvements and I'll eventually reply. As I'm suggesting to the WMF, we should take on board their comments and make sure any changes are made before considering the first notices to launch the competition. We should ping a few people to see who else might be on the panel as 3 or 4 might be wiser than 2 of us.  :-) -- (talk) 01:17, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Great news! Let's discuss over e-mail when you return from your trip. Meanwhile I'll ping the LGBT WikiProject to alert them that the grant's been approved. Funcrunch (talk) 01:20, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Protect user pagesEdit

I've got a message from you "A request for comment is available on protecting user pages by default from edits by anonymous and new users. I am notifying you because you commented on this proposal when it was either in idea or draft form."

What should I do now? I cannot find that page where I commented. Abrimaal (talk) 17:55, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

@Abrimaal: I thought I included the link to the RfC in my message; here it is again. Funcrunch (talk) 18:00, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
@Funcrunch: I cannot really find my comment in this page. Haven't I signed this comment? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Abrimaal (talk) 18:40, 6 September 2016 (UTC)
@Abrimaal: I couldn't find any comments from you on the RfC. Do you have a different username on the English Wikipedia? Funcrunch (talk) 13:56, 9 September 2016 (UTC)
@Funcrunch: No, I use the same username everywhere. Could ithe comment be deleted by someone? Abrimaal (talk) 23:08, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
@Abrimaal: When I visit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Abrimaal, I see two links to the Polish Wikipedia and a message that says "What you see on this page was copied from http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Abrimaal" (your page here on Meta). Are you sure you have an account on the English Wikipedia? Funcrunch (talk) 01:18, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Survey on Inspire Campaign for addressing harassmentEdit

Thanks for your participation during the Inspire Campaign focused on addressing harassment from June 2016.

Please feel free to let me know on my talk page if you have any questions about the campaign or the survey. Thanks! I JethroBT (WMF) (talk) 03:24, 10 September 2016 (UTC)

Queering Wikipedia 2021 User Group Working Days: May 14-16Edit

The Wikimedia LGBTQ+ User Group is holding online working days in May. If you’re an active Wikimedian, editing on LGBTQ+ issues or if you identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community, come help us set goals, develop our organisation and structures, consider how to respond to issues faced by Queer editors, and plan for the next 12 months.

We will be meeting online for 3 half-days, 14–16 May at 1400–1730 UTC. While our working language is English, we are looking to accommodate users who would prefer to participate in other languages, including translation facilities.

More information, and registration details, at QW2021.--Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group 15:43, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
