Fundraising translation feedbackEdit
Hey Miss Manzana,
I wanted to ask for your help. As you may be aware we have been running banners on many language wikis. We have a lot of new content this year and I really want to conduct a thorough review of our translations. This is a combination of feedback from the community, readers, donors as well as those with professional translator experience. This will help us ensure the highest quality of translations used in our messaging.
To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to give us feedback for Spanish using This Link
Simply follow the simple instructions on that page and if you have any questions feel free to contact me on my talk page.
Superprotect letter updateEdit
Hi Miss Manzana,
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.
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.
Hello Gauri. Thanks for the proposition to help !
Ok, let me provide you with a few suggestions where I would love it if you could help. I am providing directions so that you do not lose time looking around...
The general root page is here : WikiFundi/2021. I believe most pages have been created by now, though any suggestion will be welcome (pages to add...).
The Portada page of the project is here : WikiFundi/2021/Portada. Normally it is finished. It is just for your understanding
The Community page of the project is there : WikiFundi/2021/WikiFundi:Bienvenidos. I would love it if you could review it, fix translations, make suggestions on some improvements. I am sure it can be improved. Any feedback or copyediting will be welcome
The page to present Wikimedia is very tentative right now. WikiFundi/2021/WikiFundi:Wikimedia. Also, help welcome on that one, which still needs love...
I may come back to you afterwards, but those above would be my first choices :)
